It started with a request by the town to rent out the old ag building to a welder. The welder had approached PDL city council members during a Feb. 2 meeting, proposing 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.

Local Wednesday, March 28, 2012 driving under the in uence of alcohol and to promote forgiveness and healing for those who have had to go through the experience, implored Renee to her young audience. Meagan and Lisa were loved so much and we miss them more than words can say and their lives were taken in senseless and preventable car crash. One decision, one moment in time, and many lives were irreversibly changed forever. Renee began by telling the story of her children. How she had two children and when she found out she was pregnant again that she would be giving birth to twins. Her face lit up when she recalled the days after the birth, naming the twin girls Meagan and Carmen. I brought them home to their matching cribs and they were so small I couldnt see putting them in two separate beds, so I put them in one crib but gave them a lot of space because I thought it would be uncomfortable for them to be too close, said Renee, a sweet sad smile etching across her face as she recalled the memory. Then the most amazing thing happened when I came back to check on them. They had managed to wiggle their way to each other and they were sleeping, cuddling close to one another and I knew they knew each other; inseparable. She went on to say that they grew up like any normal children, with sleepovers, sporting events, birthday parties and so many events in life that Renee said were sadly taken for granted. It was Mothers Day weekend and we were on the phone, talking about her dress for her brothers wedding and her nances and her struggles and her concerns; we talked about everything and we talked about nothing and then we said goodbye, said Renee, her voice beginning to crack. I called her once more asking what she was doing, she said she was at the beach and how beautiful it was at night. I asked her if she was coming to Tallahassee to see me for Mothers Day weekend and she said she would, we said we loved each other and I never even knew that this would be the last time Id ever hear from her again. Renee recalled the events that happened afterward as if it were some kind of faded nightmare, like any moment she would wake from it and her world would be right again. I cant even describe the noise I made; it was guttural, from the depths of my soul, a sound of unimaginable and unending pain gripped me and the sound seemed to rip itself out of the very depths of my broken heart, said Renee, her voice shaking and a far off look in her eyes. I ended up spending Mothers Day weekend with all four of my children, only one of them was in a cof n, unreachable. She said the visitation was the largest the funeral home had ever seen, with over 900 in attendance and lasting over ve hours. A few days later they attended Lisa Dicksons funeral. For ve days we stayed in perpetual pain and if it hadnt been for the support of the community I dont know how we wouldve made it, said Renee. Every person that came and loved on us helped us survive minuteby-minute for ve long agonizing days. She said the pain didnt stop there, that next was the long trial to convict the one that murdered her baby by making one bad decision. Renee said they found during the course of the trial that Smallridge didnt have a criminal mind. She said he wasnt intending to, or was even aware that he might, cause harm to anyone that evening. We prayed for him; we prayed that God would give him a fair amount of time, which would be enough time for him to think and know the gravity of what he has done but not enough time that being in an environment of criminal minds that he wouldnt develop a criminal mind, said Renee. And we forgave him. That wasnt telling him what he did was okay, but was telling him that in spite of everything that it could be okay, that he could nd peace, that we forgave him. In a surprising twist, Renee introduced the one responsible for the deaths of her daughter and her daughters friend Eric Smallridge, who was present as an inmate. When he came out, Smallridge and Renee embraced each other as though they were old friends. Smallridge had been sentenced to 22 years in prison, 11 years for both Meagan and Lisa and by the request of Renee they reduced the sentence to 11 years. Smallridge helps with spreading the message against driving under the in uence. I never thought it could happen to me, I thought the worst that could happen is that I could get pulled over and get a DUI, said Smallridge. I knew people who got DUIs in high school and it really didnt seem like a big deal. They paid their ne, lost their license for six months and caught rides with friends until they got their hardship license for school. He said a DUI was the worst-case scenario that he could think of, but it was a very sel sh way of thinking. Here I was only thinking of myself, whats the worse thing that could happen to me, said Smallridge. I never could imagine that my actions would take the lives of two innocent young girls and thats something that I will have to carry with me for the rest of my life. The two people he said he thinks about every day are the two that were lost in an accident that he thought could never happen. They were only 20 years old, they had their whole life ahead of them and I think about them all the time and it hurts, said Smallridge as though he were pleading with the students. Everyday I ask God why I wasnt the one to die instead of them, if only I could trade places with them so they could realize the great lives they should have had, but I cant and they cant and I will have to live with that reality every single day for the rest of my life. He implored that students realize that what they have is a choice and he begged that they make the right one. If you have a drink, enjoy yourself but remember that driving at that point is simply not an option, said Smallridge. Dont even risk it; please dont hesitate to designate a driver or call a cab, otherwise you may be riding in a police car or, God forbid, a hearse. The Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce provided DVDs of their presentations to all of the students to go home and watch. After receiving the free DVDs students had the opportunity to examine the car that the girls died in. As the students made their way around the tangled mass that used to be an automobile their expressions was a collaboration of shock, wonder, sympathy and pain and their voices wouldnt rise beyond a whisper. I take it wherever I go as a testament to that night and hopefully a sobering view of the reality of what can come from one poor decision to drive under the in uence, said Renee. If my story can in uence at least one of you to choose to make the right decision, then my mission was well worth the effort.

Opinion A4 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser The views expressed here are not necessarily those of this paper or Freedom Communications. WANT MORE? Find us online at chipleypaper.com friend us on Facebook or tweet us @WCN_HCT While I am writing this weeks column, it is raining outside and theres a tornado warning to the north of us in Alabama. The reason I mention the weather is because after the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce meeting Thursday morning I stood around talking with Moises Vallejos of the Holmes County Health Department, discussing the DeltAlert program, which the Board of County Commissioners will consider this week. I am familiar with the automated calling warning systems because two years ago the three cities in Washington County, Ark., that I covered as editor of the Washington County Newspapers went through the process of shopping, purchasing and implementing a similar system called CodeRed. Last week I also got to sit in on a brie ng for the Washington County Board of County Commissioners as they heard about the countys emergency response plans from consultant Frank Koutnik, who helped the county prepare their plans. The Arkansas cities found out the importance of emergency noti cations and disaster plans the hard way in January of 2010 northwest Arkansas suffered through a terrible ice storm and on Jan. 1, 2011, a killer tornado hit the small town of Cincinnati, Ark. Ice storms are probably not very common in Florida. In fact, they arent all that common in northwest Arkansas. Supposedly this storm was one of those 100-year storms, although people remembered a similar event occurring in the early 1980s. The ice did untold amounts of damage to trees, houses and utility lines and poles. What happens in an ice storm is that trees get over weighted by ice, and more ice, until the trees cant bear the weight any more. The limbs begin popping and they fall off, taking down power lines, roofs, automobiles, fences anything that is in their way. Shannon and I lived in Prairie Grove at the time, and we were lucky. We only lost power for about a day and a half. Some of my co-workers at the newspaper who lived out in the country were without power for three weeks. One of my co-workers who lived in the middle of Fayetteville, a city of 60,000 plus, was without power for over a week at his apartment complex. Roads were impassable due to debris. The National Guard came in to set up shelters, distribute food and hook up generators to city halls so the police could have electricity to run their communications centers. In other words, overnight pretty much everything was out of order. Plus the temperatures were hovering at around 0 degrees. Have you had to go for very long without power? Jim Brook asked me while we were discussing weather following the Chamber meeting. Brook said he had gone a week without power following a storm once. What you notice is the quiet, he said. No one is driving around because they cant pump gas. Thats another problem Washington County faced in 2010. Even if they could get their trucks out onto the streets to start clearing debris, once they ran out of gas in the tanks, they were out of gas, period. Thankfully the National Guard also brought fuel. The hardest hit city was Lincoln, Ark., which also happened to be where my newspaper of ce was located. We were without power for over a week in Lincoln, and we built the newspapers from our home computers. Our main of ce, located in Springdale, where the newspapers were built and printed, was also without power for a week, so the designers and pressmen had to pack up and go to Benton County to work. The papers wound up being printed in Fort Smith, Ark., about 50 miles south of Fayetteville. Jim was right about the quiet. That night without power, huddled under every blanket we could nd and sitting in the dark, we could hear trees exploding like shotgun blasts all around town. Finally about 3 a.m. the blast that shook the house occurred when a big limb from an oak tree landed on our roof. Luckily it didnt come through, but it de nitely woke Shannon and I up, and we stayed that way for the rest of the evening. Needless to say, after the storm, the three city councils started discussing among themselves and across city boundaries what had happened. They each worked up city disaster plans. Lincoln was the most proactive town, having suffered the worst damage the rst thing city manager Chuck Wood did was go out and by the city a trailer load of generators. Gathering up the debris was a task that took all three cities crews nearly a month to complete, then the stacks of broken limbs and downed trees had to be saved until FEMA could come buy and verify how much debris there was before reimbursing the cities for their clean up work. That meant there had to be a place to store the debris a very big place. Initially, a lot of the debris was on private property, and the cities required that limbs be hauled to the curb by a certain day for pickup. There was also a lot of debris on streets, in parks, on the school grounds. It was a mess. I am no Paul Bunyan, but I had to crawl up on the roof with a saw and cut down the branch lying there until it was small enough I could lift it and push it over the side. Next week well talk about tornadoes, and sirens that you probably wont hear when you need them and well revisit the New Years Day tornado in Cincinnati, Ark., and the much worse May 22, 2011 tornado that devastated Joplin, Mo.

I havent been very involved in the social media Facebook, but a subject-line last week initiated by Jedd McFatter caught my eye. He had commented on an report done on National Public Radio on March 13 about spanking in Floridas public schools. The topic was prompted by a case in Levy County where the mother of a veyear old is suing the school system over the paddling of her child without her consent. In the NPR article, much of the material was about the paddling in Holmes County Schools. Florida is one of only 19 states that allow paddling as a disciplinary method. Each School Principal sets the policy for paddling at his or her school. At HCHS, Principal Eddie Dixon says that paddling is used for minor offenses like back-talking or consistent tardiness. Students are paddled only by Dixon or an assistant principal. There are no state regulations on what the paddles should look like, but they describe Dixons as about 16 inches by 5 inches and shaped like a boat paddle. The woodshop class is asked to make the paddles. Cole Long, an HCHS senior says, Ive never made a paddle, but Ive been on the receiving end of one. Things like throwing paper, pencils and a couple of times for cussing and then backtalking have netted this young man paddlings. Earlier this year, Cole Long won $7,200 at a bull-riding competition in Texas. Even to a bull rider, Cole said, the paddle can sting depending on whos doing the spanking. He says that he thinks all schools should paddle students because they learn discipline and respect. Bud Glover, another Bonifay resident says, I got my butt beat, and I know whats right and wrong. My children are going to know whats right and wrong. I think the problem with society is we quit paddling. Lucas Mixon, a HCHS junior says, Ive been getting them since about rst grade. Its just regular. They tell you to put your hands up on the desk and how many swats youre going to get. Jedd, a 1998 graduate of HCHS, a graduate of FSU and Denver Theological Seminary, he is State Trainer/Florida Longterm Care Ombudsman in Tallahassee. He asked his friends on facebook to comment on the article. Then he started tallying the number of teachers who were named, but I think he gave up, there were so many. I am going to include as many comments as space allows. Eric Eglund wrote, Mrs Saunders paddled our entire class at BMS for not sitting in our assigned seats when we had a substitute. Jonah Chitty: Coach Wheeler for not bringing my progress report to him. Dianne Steverson: Paddled by Mr. Bridenback in 6th grade for having a red-hot in my mouth. Andy Bowen got paddled by coach Dixon, but he warned him the day before and Andy wore 3 pairs of boxers, 2 pairs of shorts and his jeans. Bowen says, Now that I think about it we were paddled by a former NFL tight end and a prospective MLB baseball player. Amanda Hardy Eldridge got paddled by Robin Carroll. Landrea Messer Garrett got hers from Mrs. Colletti and Josh Crutch eld from Keith White. Robert Curry, one of the paddlers, was paddled by the best, he claims: Bobby (Moose) Helms. Robert remembers Miss. VanLandingham who never paddled. She punished with her raised eyebrow, a pointed nger, and a look that made you want to melt and puddle up under her desk. Jimmy Dudley mentioned Mrs. Sandra Boswell, Mr. Hester and Mrs. Donna Wilson. (The Jimmy I knew probably got a few more.) He also used the paddle himself during his short tenure at Bonifay Elementary School. Kaci Howell Johnson said she managed to squeak by without a paddling, but her dad, Andy, paddled her brother in the principals of ce and she could hear it all the way to the lunchroom. The second highest number of paddlings listed came from Jami McFatter with eleven: Posie Vaughn, Martha Brown, Madaline McFatter (her mom) for Mike Rich, Mike Anderson, Beria Dyson, DiAnn Austin, & Eddie Sims. Matt Curry scored the highest number with 14: Miss Dyson, Mrs. Flater Ms Brazile, Coach McGlaun, Bobby Newsome, Mr. Etheridge, Coach McFatter, Coach Simmons, Coach Dunn, Coach Dixon, Jerry Dixon, Mr. Locke, Mr. Lee, and Mr. Zorn.(And some I probably forgot he said) Almost all those who responded were in favor of the paddling. Paula Jernigan said, I received my rst spanking thanks to John Howell and compliments of Mrs. Geneva Austin. It may have caused me mental anguish and a sore end for awhile and Im sure I received more. However, I am proud to say I am among Holmes Countys spanked students. In looking at this list, I think what a great in uence these and others had on our lives. Hilary Booth agrees. I asked my youngest son, Glen, if he had a paddling. He said he got one from his Dad, and one from Harold Wells for hitting Calvin Sherrouse with a baseball mitt after he kept on hitting him with something. Wells played college baseball and had a very good swing. I personally know many of those who responded to Jedds survey. Most of them are professionals themselves now and believe that community sanctioned paddling is a good thing. Lemuel Toro who confessed to getting paddled by Ron Dixon and Donald Etheridge at BMS and James Lamb at Poplar Springs seemed to have some reservations about the possible harmful effects of corporal punishment, and thought there might be a more humane way of handling discipline.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, March 28, 2012 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section DIFFERENT PATH A good tip of the week would be to keep all those Spanish mackerel carcasses when you get through cleaning them. I know tons of Spanish mackerel are being caught and cleaned and the carcasses thrown away every day, but did you know you are throwing away some of the best red snapper bait you could possibly buy? Big red snapper in the 10to 15pound class love Spanish mackerel carcasses. Hooked through the eyes and weighted down with only a ounce lead this is one of the deadliest baits you could ever use to catch big red snapper. I simply hook one up on a spinning rod, throw it out behind the boat, place the rod in a rod holder and wait for one to get on. Using a circle hook, it is easy to take this bait away from a big fish, but leaving it in the rod holder until the snapper is hooked ensures you will not pull it away from a fish. Not many cobia have been caught, but the ones that have run from 40-80 pounds. There have been very few small cobia caught this year. Probably the first one caught in this area was the smallest at 27 pounds. Pompano arent here in great numbers, but there are enough to fill a limit if only they would bite. It happens every year. The March run of pompano might be in the thousands, but for some reason they dont want to bite like the ones that arrive in April. Maybe they are the same pompano and just get hungrier over the period of a month. Sheepshead are starting to get thick at the jetties. They congregate to spawn in the spring and are easy to catch on live or dead shrimp. I would advise going by Buddy Gandys seafood market and buying fresh shrimp over the shrimp you might find elsewhere. Sometimes the cup shrimp are the dead ones that die and spoil in the live shrimp tanks and are scooped up and cupped up and frozen and sold for bait. Its not hard to see why a fish would prefer a fresh shrimp over one that was old even before it was frozen. The fishing is starting to turn on, so with the extra hour we have after work head to the beach and get after them. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Turkey hunter teaches himself outdoors skills By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Most of the year, you will nd Jose Ponce running his lawn care business in Bay County. Come the spring, however, he will quickly tell you he would rather be turkey hunting. The 57-year-old Ponce and his wife, Dorothy, live in Panama City. Dorothy is a Bay High School graduate. Ponces love of hunting dates back to his boyhood years growing up in a rural area outside Guadalajara, Mexico. When I was a kid, I always played like I was an Indian. I had a sling-shot, and Id get a pocketful of rocks, and Id try and sneak up on doves and rabbits, he said. Whatever I killed Mama would cook for us. When I killed something, that meant we didnt have to eat our chickens; at least not that day. Ponce said his family was poor. He had nine brothers and sisters, all living in a small house, without running water or electricity. His father was a tenant farmer. In 1971, Ponce, looking for a better life, immigrated to California, became a U.S. citizen and found work at a horse stable. The owner of the stable was very good to me, Ponce said. He was almost like a father. Ponce met Dorothy in California. They married, and they returned to Bay County in 1977. When Ponce moved to Northwest Florida, he was amazed at the variety of wildlife and the opportunities for someone to hunt. Although most hunters have someone introduce them to the sport, Ponce learned to turkey hunt by himself. The rst thing I bought was a Lynchs box call. They are really good, Ponce said. Then, I got a mouth yelper. We would go to Walmart and I would walk behind my wife and yelp like a turkey. It would drive her crazy. A week into Floridas ve-week season, Ponce is turning his attention to hunting locally. If previous seasons are an indication, he will bag his two birds in Florida before seasons end. Florida duo wins Redfish Tour in Port St. Joe Special to The Times-Advertiser Bobby Weir of Santa Rosa Beach and Matt Schoen of Freeport weighed in a two-redfish limit that totaled 13.02 pounds to win the IFA Redfish Tour event in Port St. Joe on March 17. To win the event, which operated out of Port St. Joe Marina, the duo topped a large field of twoangler teams to take home a new, fully-rigged Ranger Banshee Extreme powered by a 60-horsepower, four-stroke Yamaha outboard and equipped with a Power-Pole shallow water anchor, Minn Kota trolling motor, Humminbird electronics, Blue Point Fabrication metal work, Bobs 4-inch Ultra Light Jackplate and a Loadmaster trailer valued at $30,000. Despite the foggy conditions, Weir and Schoen ran 45 miles fishing in the Apalachicola area with jigs and Berkley Gulp. The teams catch included a 7.65-pound redfish, which netted the team the $500 Berkeley Gulp Big Fish Award with a $250 Cabelas gift card, courtesy of Berkley. Because we were expecting the fog, the conditions didnt have much of an impact, Weir said. We were pretty excited to win the event. Second-place finishers Chad Dufrene of Purvis, Miss., and Jay Cedotal of Prairieville, La., weighed in 12.80 pounds. The twotime IFA winners in 2011 ran 50 miles catching their redfish by tight-lining Gulp. The team also won an additional $1,000 for the Cabelas Angler Cash Award. It was foggy and the tide was extremely low, Dufrene said. But overall we were happy with our performance. Brad Henry of Dawson, Ga., and Jason Bryan of Albany, Ga., brought 12.36 pounds to the scales to win third place. Fishing locally in the Port St. Joe area, Henry and Bryan fished grass flats with jerkbaits and spoons. The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabelas continues to draw redfish anglers from Texas to the Carolinas and beyond, offering two-angler teams the opportunity to compete in six different divisions, each offering a two-event regular season. Teams fishing any two of the IFAs 12 regular-season events and one regional event are automatically qualified for a noentry-fee championship event, pitting qualifiers from each of the six divisions for a combined $118,450 in payouts and prize packages, as well as a shot at the coveted Cabelas Overall Divisional Team of the Year Award for the six regular-season division winners. Special to The News Herald Jose Ponce poses with a mature tom he killed with his black-powder shotgun. Below, Ponce holds his 12-gauge black-powder shotgun.

PHOTOS SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Joey Lagano is the winner of the Royal Purple 300. At right, Tony Stewart is the winner of the Auto Club 400. Stewart wins rain shortened Auto Club 400 By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Clamb@chipleypaper.com Tony Stewart won his second race of the season in the Auto Club 400 in Fontana, Calif. Smoke qualified 10th for the race and came out around Kyle Busch in lap 85 to hold on for the win. Only 129 laps of the 200 scheduled laps were run because of rain. But since the race was past the half-way point, the race was called with Stewart in the first place position. This was the first ever rainshortened race at the Auto Club Speedway. Jeff Gordon and his pit crew were penalized when Gordon, doing what Gordon always does when that jack drops on the left side of the car, sped out of pit road before the gas man gets the gas can out of the car giving the gas man the scare of his life. The crew also let a tire get away from them in another pit stop. Gordon finished 17th and a lap down. Joey Logano won the Nationwide Royal Purple 300. Three years ago he was the youngest driver in Nationwide Series history to win a race. Now at the age of 21 he has pulled off 10 victories in the Nationwide Series. This race had only one caution that came on lap 123 for rain. This was the longest stretch of green flag racing at the Auto Club Speedway in a Sprint Cup race. The on lap 129 came the red flag and the race was called because of the rain. In other NASCAR news, the Sprint All-Star Fan Vote is now open.

Wilson Biophilia Center to compete in the first Emerald Coast Regional Envirothon. The students were tested in five categories: soils and land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife and current environmental issues. Putting environmental knowledge to the test By ANGEL McCURDY 315-4432 | @AngelMnwfdn amccurdy@nwfdailynews.com FREEPORT More than 100 high students circulated around the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center on Friday to test their environmental knowledge in the first Emerald Coast Regional Envirothon. Students from Bay, Holmes, Walton and Washington counties competed as teams to be tested on regional and global environmental issues in five categories. We started studying in February and have spent hours on this, said sophomore Bryanna Muscella from Walton High School. We had to study aquatic ecology, soil, forestry, wildlife and current issues. Tents and displays were set up for each of the topics. At the aquatic station, various water bugs in formaldehyde were displayed. One group, named Standing Tall Team, finished its aquatics test long before the 30minute time limit expired. The teenagers felt confident of their chance to win, which would advance them to state and then national competitions to vie for scholarships. This is all about learning community stewardship, plus they get a day outside, said Gail Carmody, on-site coordinator for the event. Community stewardship is important to all of us, and its important that these students know about ecology. Volunteers manned each display and helped with the tests. For us, its about future conservation, said John Soba with the Florida Forest Service, who was at the forestry station. For this portion, we chose some common trees, things they would see so they can apply it later. Skulls, snakes and even a snapping turtle were used for the wildlife test. A team from Chipley High School in Washington County placed first overall. Second place went to the Hippies from Walton High. Beth Yates, a marine science and chemistry teacher at Walton, said her students have shown a lot of enthusiasm for the outdoors and conservation. I want them to really understand that science is the world, and not just between the covers of their textbooks, she said. Sponsors line up for 8th annual Freedom Classic By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com MARIANNA Gulf Coast States junior college softball slide continued to near the bottom of the Panhandle Conference standings following Saturdays latest misery. Chipola withstood two deficits in winning the first game of a doubleheader 6-5 and the host Lady Indians secured the sweep with an 11-3 rout in a six-inning run-rule in the second game. Chipola moved into a first-place tie with Tallahassee at 5-1 in the conference, while also improving to 37-6 overall with its fourth straight win and 11th triumph in the past 12 games. GC lost for the fourth consecutive game and for the fifth time in its last six in dipping to 3-5 in the Panhandle. The Lady Commodores (26-11) once were tied for first place, but that seems long ago after falling in two straight sweeps. GC is now three games behind coleaders Tallahassee and Chipola, both of which swept the Lady Commodores this week. GC opened with a 3-0 lead in the first inning of Game 1 on the strength of Hilary Chapmans two-run single to score Amanda Grimaldo and Hilari Hopkins. The Lady Commodores had three of their six hits in the first inning against winning pitcher Eva Voortman. Chipola chewed into the lead with single runs in the second and third innings before taking the lead in the fourth. Chelsey Steedley and Hayley Parker had an RBI single and double, respectively, off GC starter and loser Ollivia McLemore to give the Lady Indians a 4-3 advantage. GC tied the game in the seventh when Hannah Strickland scored on Hopkins single. Chapman singled for her third hit to bring around Hopkins for a 5-4 GC lead. GC steps out of conference for a home doubleheader against Gadsden State today starting at noon. Chipola hosts Tallahassee on Thursday, the teams splitting the previous doubleheader March 15.

Local Wednesday, March 28, 2012 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County Health Departments Moises Vallejos has a mission, and Tuesday he plans to take it before the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners. Vallejos is part of a coalition seeking to bring the DeltAlert program to the county which would provide email, text or phone messages in case of a pending weather emergency, such as a tornado. The commissioners considered their resolution during their regular meeting Tuesday. Results of the meeting were not available before press time, but may be found at www.bonifaynow. com Just because we havent had an emergency doesnt mean we wont have one, Vallejos said. The system also can be used to let residents know about other things as well, such as county meetings, water or sewage issues, or even school closings. DeltAlert would allow the countys emergency management director to send voice, email, SMS/ text, Facebook and Twitter alerts in the case of a countywide emergency, according to a company news release. The system also can automatically deliver National Weather Service alerts. Funding the alert system is one problem, Vallejos said. It costs about $4,600 a year to participate in DeltAlert. Finding the information for the contact list also can be a problem. Because the county does not have a database available, such as the list of customers for a utility, the county would most likely have to purchase that information from a provider. An alternative, having people self-register, would not cost the county any extra, but getting people to participate can be problematic, Vallejos said. The DeltAlert System Coalition has proposed that several entities come together to pay the expense. The health department, Doctors Memorial Hospital, the sheriffs of ce, the county 911 of ce, and BOCC would all contribute $450 toward the expense; the Bonifay Police and the city of Bonifay would contribute $225 each; the Emergency Operations Center Weather Module would pay $19,00. Bonifay City Council Member Lawrence Cloud said on Feb. 27 at the City Council Meeting that 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, said Cloud. Weve got to nd a way to increase public awareness of this service and try to increase the publics participation. 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, said Cloud. I think if we could get enough participation we should look into this, said Council Member Roger Brooks. This could help our emergency management agencies quite a bit.

Allen Barnes 21 Years Experience PDL council members told the welder they would need permission from the school board before they could rent the building out, but they approved of the welder renting the building pending HCSD approval. Ponce de Leon Town Clerk Beth Peterson presented the request to the HCSD at the school boards Feb. 15 meeting. Superintendent Gary Galloway said the board would need to take the matter to its attorney before proceeding. Holmes County School Board Attorney Lucas Taylor offered two recommendations during a Feb. 28 board meeting. The rst was to adjust the lease to add indemnity of the property to the contract, meaning PDL would take full responsibility of the property and any liability. This ensures if something were to happen to someone on the property and the property owners were sued, PDL would step in and take full responsibility. This also would require PDL to show proof of insurance once a year, or the contract would become void. Taylor said the indemnity doesnt save the school board from the full impact of a lawsuit because the board still would have to answer the summons and pay lawyer fees. His second recommendation was to deed the building to PDL, which would free the school board of all liability. The property is useless to us as it is, and it comes down to the question of Is the property worth the risk of a lawsuit? said board member Gary Scott. After the property was appraised, Larry Zorn with HCSD Facilities said it looked as though the building wasnt even on HCSDs property. The HCSD will do a title search and review the lease, which was established in 1988. The district also agreed to keep PDL updated on the progress made. In other news, the HCSD approved of overnight trips requested by the Holmes County High School JROTC, Future Business Leaders of America, Key Club and PDLH FBLA. The JROTC will be attending the Conduct State Drill Meet on April 14 held in Lakeland and the Conduct State Ri e Meet on April 28 in Cape Coral; HCHS Key Club will be attending the Leadership Skills State Convention May 10-13 in Orlando; and Ponce de Leon and Holmes Countys FBLA groups will be attending the Florida FBLA State Leadership Conference April 27 through May 1 in Orlando. AG BUILDING from page A1 Times-Advertiser. Seats 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. Sims announced during the last meeting that he would not be running for re-election. Im retiring to pursue a few educational projects, said Sims. Cloud resigned his position as Seat 2 to run for mayor and is currently running unopposed. There are four candidates running for Seat 2, including Ray Brooks, JoAnn Foxworth, Andrew Granger and Larry White; and Seat 4, currently held by Micah McCormick is unopposed. Sims was re-elected mayor of Bonifay in March 2010 and defeated JoAnn Foxworth, who had vacated Seat 4 to run for mayor and was lled in by Lawrence Cloud, who was unopposed. During the same election in 2010 Micah McCormick. McCormick was reelected for Seat 2 defeating Ray Brooks. BONIFAY from page A1 Tallahassee. He taught at Bonifay Elementary School and coached at Holmes County High School for four years. He spent 16 years in educational technology sales and management. He has been married to Marcy Elmore Dixon for 24 years. They have a 19-year-old son, Eli, and a 16-yearold daughter, Jordan. He has two brothers, Ron and Johnny, and is the son of Jerry and Charlotte Dixon. As your next superintendent, I will work hard to make a great school system even better. I will take responsibility for the safety, security, and education of the students and be accountable to the people of Holmes County, Dixon said. My plan is to focus on offering a broader range of opportunities that target the success of all students. An open door policy will be continued in order to listen to the concerns of parents and students to ensure that all stakeholders are treated fairly, consistently and with respect, he said. Teachers will be provided support and resources to maximize their ability to educate students in the 21stcentury, Dixon said. I will provide leadership that encourages employees to be nancially conservative and utilize resources and personnel for the maximum bene t of students, he added. Children today come to school with a long list of circumstances and issues that create educational needs outside of the traditional classroom. They also face an ever changing future. As educators, we must exhaust all resources to address their needs and prepare them to succeed as adults. It is my goal that all students re ect upon their school days with same fondness I have, Dixon said. It is my commitment that each and every student be given the opportunity to ful ll their potential. It is my promise to continue a tradition of excellence in Holmes County Schools. DIXON from page A1 Panel OKs Vernon festival grant By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Tourist Development Council approved on Monday a $2,000 grant for the town of Vernons annual Firecracker Day. Vernons Fourth of July event features the Miss Firecracker Pageant and a reworks display, and Vernon City Council Member Tina Sloan brought her grant request before the council. We make most of the money for the festival from the pageant, Sloan said. The pageant is key. I dont want to begrudge Vernon, or anyone, their reworks, but how much is the city setting aside for the process? asked TDC member Ted Everett. Everett said the TDC had budgeted $2,000 for the festival, although the grant request was for $3,000. We understand that were only getting $2,000, Sloan said. Michelle Cook is our new mayor and she lled out the form. Everett said the TDC was decreasing the amount of money available in grants to the city. According to the grant request, the Firecracker festival will cost abot $10,500. The bulk of the $2,000 will be spent on advertising, according to the request. Council member Jim Town said he thought the event had low attendance by tourists. Gwen March, TDC member and Vernon City Council member, said that the event was primarily attended by local families. Attendance last year was 569 with 99 visitors coming from out of county, or 17 percent. Sloan said the attendance numbers were likely lower than they should be since parking was not controlled. This year we are going to try and control parking more and get a better count, she said. This year the festival will also feature country music acts and a political speech event, Sloan said. The council voted to approve the $2,000 request, with March abstaining from the vote. The council also voted to accept the resignation of Allen White from the panel. White was a bed tax collector and vice chairman of the TDC. BOCC to consider emergency warning system A8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser

Wednesday, MARCH 28 2012 From Staff Reports BONIFAY The Holmes County High School Chorus performed Decades of Music March 23-25 at the HCHS Auditorium. They performed and sang popular hits from the 1950s to present day, such as Jailhouse Rock, There Goes My Baby, Stand By Me and tributes to Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson, Queen and Justin Bieber. Disco Fever went alongside dance music from the s and included more than a dozen solos featured with a live band. Soloists included Nic Bell, Jeremy Bailey, Braeden Cooper, Carlton Hedman, Zac Garner, Kayln Hardin, Haylee Harris, Haleigh Music, Julie Wells, Chelsey Cullifer and Alex Langley. Decades of Music was a challenge because it involved two classes, and the majority of the work had to be done after school, said Ricky Ward, HCHS drama/chorus director. The majority of them had to pull double duty because they were working on doing Footloose, too. As always, theyve done a great job. I cant say enough how proud I am of them, all of the work theyve put into it. We havent had a show like this in almost two years. Weve got ve students on vocal scholarships. Theres so much talent here, and we want to show the world how talented and special they are, Ward said. Theyve been working so hard, and theyve had performances back to back and had to deal with technical dif culties during some of the shows. The HCHS Chorus performed a portion of their Decades production during the Downhome Street Festival. One thing I would like for them to know is to know that theyre doing well enough so that they can cope with unforeseen circumstances, and thats what they did very well, Ward said. Im very proud of them. Now we are in full force for Footloose. It will be fun music and fun dancing. We had great auditions, and weve got the best cast for this show. Theyve been working hard with the choreography and the live band. The stage version will be different from the one that came out in the 80s and the remake that came out recently, but the audience can expect all the same songs they love from Footloose. The drama department will perform Footloose at 7 p.m. May 10 and May 12-15 at the HCHS auditorium. Weve got over 12 seniors involved in the show, and its hard to be losing so many, but weve got many talented young ones coming in, too, Ward said. We teach them where theyre supposed to go, what its like to work with a team, but I think the biggest aspect taken from these classes and these shows is the con dence gained by being able to get out there and show people what youre capable of. I really think this is something that can help them get far in all aspects of their lives. They can take that con dence back with them to classroom and conquer those tests. Im hoping its given them a lot of con dence, and I believe it has. INDEX Society ................................. B2 Faith ....................................

By JOHN WHITTINGTON Special to the News CHIPLEY John Whitting ton, a student at Chipola College, has started a proj ect to restore the Wash ington Primitive Baptist Church, also known as Hard Labor Creek Church. Whittington is an Hon or student at Chipola. He is undertaking the proj ect for Phi Theta Kappa, the honors fraternity at the college. The church was rst es tablished in 1848, and then rebuilt in 1931. This church is one of the beautiful his toric sites of Washington County. The roof is in disre pair and if not restored soon the old church has the po tential to leak, which would lead to rotting. The best bid on a new roof is $3,200. If enough funds are raised Whittington would also like to replace the doors, x a few broken window panes, and hopefully repaint the outside of the church. Whittington says, This being a community service project I would like to get the community involved as much as possible. If any one has information on the church or cemetery, I would love to know it. Things like pictures, documents, or just some facts will be good. Donations are now be ing accepted. Any and all donations will be used di rectly for the Hard Labor Creek Church restoration project. Anyone who would like to donate or provide infor mation may contact John Whittington at 557-0006 or at johnwhit2011@yahoo. com or mail at 1143Whit tington Road Chipley, FL 32428.

FAITH B Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Special To Extra An expected total of some 20 million guests and visitors will soon join the Jehovahs Witnesses world-wide in commemoration of Jesus Christs sacri cial death. The annual Christian observance is to be held after sundown, Thursday, April 5. The Bonifay function is open to the public and will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. at Kingdom Hall, 1300 East Highway 90 in Bonifay. The simple honorary ceremony will be of ciated by William L. Murray, local minister of the Bonifay Congregation of Jehovahs Witnesses. The one-hour gathering will consist of a brief instructive discourse, along with a review of the original Biblical proceedings, and reading of the exact words of the historical rst observance held by Jesus Christ himself with his eleven faithful Apostles. John F. Gilbert, a Bonifay elder, stated that This Scriptural observance was rmly instituted by Jesus Christ shortly before his death, and it continues down to this day as a special world-wide occasion, in recognition of this most important history. He revealed that Virtually every home in Holmes and Washington Counties is to receive a personal engraves incitation to share in this annual meeting. Brother Gilbert serves as a local Bible instructor, and service group overseer of the body of elders here. He explained: This occasion is often termed The Lord Evening Meal, and is most proper response to the direct command by Jesus for all Christians yearly to Keep doing this, in remembrance of me. He declared, This is the only religious day celebrated by Jehovahs Witnesses, and is it faithfully commemorated annually world-wide on the exact day which corresponds to the ancient Hebrew date of Christs death. Thus, after sundown, at 7:30 p.m. locally, and in each of the more than 109,000 Kingdom Halls in 236 countries and islands of the sea, the brief ceremony will memorialize Jesus unsel sh sacri cial death on the sacred date corresponding to Nisan 14 of the Bibles lunar calendar. He said that last year visitors of many varied religious backgrounds joined Jehovahs Witnesses in displaying due respect for Jesus, as the total attendance around the earth last spring reached 19,372,737. He pointed out that over seven million Witnesses were joined by some 12 million guests and observers. Mr. Gilbert noted that no collections are taken at any meetings of Jehovahs Witnesses. Exact meeting times for the Memorial at other Kingdom Halls are available by phone or news media in those areas. Special seating, parking and transportation arrangements have been made in advance, he said, in order to hospitably accommodate the large number of expected good-will observers from Vernon, Ebro, Esto, Caryvile, Westville, New Hope and Bonifay.

This Message Courtesy of Why We Should Pray! It is p ossible to live a virtuous life by simply adhering to the universal rules of morality which every moral philosophy and religion dic tates: Be honest, respect others property, help each other when they are in need, etc. But it is not possible to live a godly life without prayer, for without prayer we lack that openness to the experience of God which is required if we are to be true Christians. Gods grace is abundant, but it cannot be given without being asked for; grace must be freely asked for and freely given. This can only hap pen through sincere and heartfelt prayer. Over and over again we see throughout the Bible that Gods chosen ones come to him on bent knees with prayer and supplication. The godly call upon God in their time of need whereas the godless rely upon their own strength. Prayer, at bottom, is nothing more than a spirit of open ness to what God is telling us, but it is also a conversation, with us asking God for help, and thanking Him for his many gifts to us. Then Jesus told his dis ciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. Luke 18:1 Wednesday, March 28, 2012 Page 4 By Rev. James L. Snyder Fun is a relative quantity. One persons fun may be somebody elses drudgery and pain. I know someone, and her name shall remain anonymous, whose idea of fun is rooting through thrift stores all day long. That concept of fun has never darkened the shadowy corridors of my mind. The idea of spending time in the park has to be amended to include one very important ingredient. On my own, I probably would not even think of going to the park. Not that I do not like the park, I just would not come up with the idea all by myself. Then, the important equation of fun is a little granddaughter. A day at the park by myself does not equal to very much fun. After all, I have talked to myself and I am rather boring. I have heard all my stories before and by the time, I tell myself the story for the 19th time it is no longer funny. A day at the park with the granddaughter does equal fun. I think grandchildren are Gods way of reminding grandfathers how much energy we do not have and, for that matter, never had. The date was set and my wife and I set off to take our little granddaughter to the park. On the main features of this park was a merry-go-round. I am rather certain they had merry-go-round when I was a child but for the life of me, I cannot remember the last time I took a spin. As we set out for our destination in the park, I nonchalantly told the little granddaughter that there was a merry-go-round in the park. That was the end of my talk for the trip. The whole way there, all she could talk about was the merry-go-round and how fast it went in how many ponies there were. By the time we got to the merry-go-round I had learned about all there is to know about a merry-goround from a six-year-olds viewpoint. According to her, the merry-go-round is about the most fun you could ever have in the whole wide world. And, she emphasized, Im serious. We rounded the corner, before us was the park and in the middle of the park was this mysterious, mystical merry-go-round. It elicited a deep heartfelt Wow, from the younger member of our walking troop. She immediately began running and pulling me along to the point where I had to walk a little faster than I normally walk. I mean, at my age running is completely out of the question. And so, she ran, I shuf ed enthusiastically and before long we were in front of the merry-go-round. Isnt it beautiful, grandpa, she almost whispered. We did not stand long admiring the merry-goround. She let out a squeal and said, Come on, grandpa. Lets go ride the merry-go-round. My plans were very simple. I would let her get on the merry-go-round, pay for the ticket, sit down on the bench and watch her go round and round and round. Well, that was my plan. She, on the other hand, had other plans. With almost superhuman force she drug me pass the admission gate, I hardly had enough time to pay for the ride and to the pony she was going to ride. This is my pony, grandpa. Wheres yours? I quickly searched my plans and could nowhere nd any notation about riding a pony on a merrygo-round on this particular day. Instead, I helped her up on her pony and I stood by her and said, Well do this one together. She was too excited about riding the merry-go-round that she did not respond. I grabbed hold of one part of the pony, right next to us was another pony and I held onto that. Are we ready to go, grandpa? No sooner had she said that until the bell rang and the merry-go-round began going round. And round. And round. Not only that, the pony she was on, went up and down and the pony next to her that I was hanging onto went down and up. It was as if I was in perpetual motion. It seemed as if that merry-go-round ride lasted 17 hours. Eventually, with my head spinning and my stomach doing whatever stomachs do, we came to the end of our merry-go-round. Being grateful that we have nished our ride, I proceeded to disengage her from the pony. However, that was not her plan. Oh, grandpa, just one more time. The problem with grandfathers is that nowhere in their vocabulary lurks in any fashion any sound resembling no. Consequently, we went round on the merry-goround just one more time. I learned a deep lesson that afternoon. When a little granddaughter says just one more time, it is not in any literal sense of the word that they say it. Im not prepared to say how many times we went on that merry-go-round, needless to say, by the end of the afternoon I was in a complete whirl not knowing whither I was coming or whither I was going. As we walked over to get our ice cream treat, I remembered what the apostle Paul said about Timothy. And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15(KJV). The Rev. James L.

LocalWednesday, March 28, 2012driving under the in uence of alcohol and to promote forgiveness and healing for those who have had to go through the experience, implored Renee to her young audience. Meagan and Lisa were loved so much and we miss them more than words can say and their lives were taken in senseless and preventable car crash. One decision, one moment in time, and many lives were irreversibly changed forever. Renee began by telling the story of her children. How she had two children and when she found out she was pregnant again that she would be giving birth to twins. Her face lit up when she recalled the days after the birth, naming the twin girls Meagan and Carmen. I brought them home to their matching cribs and they were so small I couldnt see putting them in two separate beds, so I put them in one crib but gave them a lot of space because I thought it would be uncomfortable for them to be too close, said Renee, a sweet sad smile etching across her face as she recalled the memory. Then the most amazing thing happened when I came back to check on them. They had managed to wiggle their way to each other and they were sleeping, cuddling close to one another and I knew they knew each other; inseparable. She went on to say that they grew up like any normal children, with sleepovers, sporting events, birthday parties and so many events in life that Renee said were sadly taken for granted. It was Mothers Day weekend and we were on the phone, talking about her dress for her brothers wedding and her nances and her struggles and her concerns; we talked about everything and we talked about nothing and then we said goodbye, said Renee, her voice beginning to crack. I called her once more asking what she was doing, she said she was at the beach and how beautiful it was at night. I asked her if she was coming to Tallahassee to see me for Mothers Day weekend and she said she would, we said we loved each other and I never even knew that this would be the last time Id ever hear from her again. Renee recalled the events that happened afterward as if it were some kind of faded nightmare, like any moment she would wake from it and her world would be right again. I cant even describe the noise I made; it was guttural, from the depths of my soul, a sound of unimaginable and unending pain gripped me and the sound seemed to rip itself out of the very depths of my broken heart, said Renee, her voice shaking and a far off look in her eyes. I ended up spending Mothers Day weekend with all four of my children, only one of them was in a cof n, unreachable. She said the visitation was the largest the funeral home had ever seen, with over 900 in attendance and lasting over ve hours. A few days later they attended Lisa Dicksons funeral. For ve days we stayed in perpetual pain and if it hadnt been for the support of the community I dont know how we wouldve made it, said Renee. Every person that came and loved on us helped us survive minuteby-minute for ve long agonizing days. She said the pain didnt stop there, that next was the long trial to convict the one that murdered her baby by making one bad decision. Renee said they found during the course of the trial that Smallridge didnt have a criminal mind. She said he wasnt intending to, or was even aware that he might, cause harm to anyone that evening. We prayed for him; we prayed that God would give him a fair amount of time, which would be enough time for him to think and know the gravity of what he has done but not enough time that being in an environment of criminal minds that he wouldnt develop a criminal mind, said Renee. And we forgave him. That wasnt telling him what he did was okay, but was telling him that in spite of everything that it could be okay, that he could nd peace, that we forgave him. In a surprising twist, Renee introduced the one responsible for the deaths of her daughter and her daughters friend Eric Smallridge, who was present as an inmate. When he came out, Smallridge and Renee embraced each other as though they were old friends. Smallridge had been sentenced to 22 years in prison, 11 years for both Meagan and Lisa and by the request of Renee they reduced the sentence to 11 years. Smallridge helps with spreading the message against driving under the in uence. I never thought it could happen to me, I thought the worst that could happen is that I could get pulled over and get a DUI, said Smallridge. I knew people who got DUIs in high school and it really didnt seem like a big deal. They paid their ne, lost their license for six months and caught rides with friends until they got their hardship license for school. He said a DUI was the worst-case scenario that he could think of, but it was a very sel sh way of thinking. Here I was only thinking of myself, whats the worse thing that could happen to me, said Smallridge. I never could imagine that my actions would take the lives of two innocent young girls and thats something that I will have to carry with me for the rest of my life. The two people he said he thinks about every day are the two that were lost in an accident that he thought could never happen. They were only 20 years old, they had their whole life ahead of them and I think about them all the time and it hurts, said Smallridge as though he were pleading with the students. Everyday I ask God why I wasnt the one to die instead of them, if only I could trade places with them so they could realize the great lives they should have had, but I cant and they cant and I will have to live with that reality every single day for the rest of my life. He implored that students realize that what they have is a choice and he begged that they make the right one. If you have a drink, enjoy yourself but remember that driving at that point is simply not an option, said Smallridge. Dont even risk it; please dont hesitate to designate a driver or call a cab, otherwise you may be riding in a police car or, God forbid, a hearse. The Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce provided DVDs of their presentations to all of the students to go home and watch. After receiving the free DVDs students had the opportunity to examine the car that the girls died in. As the students made their way around the tangled mass that used to be an automobile their expressions was a collaboration of shock, wonder, sympathy and pain and their voices wouldnt rise beyond a whisper. I take it wherever I go as a testament to that night and hopefully a sobering view of the reality of what can come from one poor decision to drive under the in uence, said Renee. If my story can in uence at least one of you to choose to make the right decision, then my mission was well worth the effort.

OpinionA4 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserThe views expressed here are not necessarily those of this paper or Freedom Communications. WANT MORE?Find us online at chipleypaper.com friend us on Facebook or tweet us @WCN_HCT While I am writing this weeks column, it is raining outside and theres a tornado warning to the north of us in Alabama. The reason I mention the weather is because after the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce meeting Thursday morning I stood around talking with Moises Vallejos of the Holmes County Health Department, discussing the DeltAlert program, which the Board of County Commissioners will consider this week. I am familiar with the automated calling warning systems because two years ago the three cities in Washington County, Ark., that I covered as editor of the Washington County Newspapers went through the process of shopping, purchasing and implementing a similar system called CodeRed. Last week I also got to sit in on a brie ng for the Washington County Board of County Commissioners as they heard about the countys emergency response plans from consultant Frank Koutnik, who helped the county prepare their plans. The Arkansas cities found out the importance of emergency noti cations and disaster plans the hard way in January of 2010 northwest Arkansas suffered through a terrible ice storm and on Jan. 1, 2011, a killer tornado hit the small town of Cincinnati, Ark. Ice storms are probably not very common in Florida. In fact, they arent all that common in northwest Arkansas. Supposedly this storm was one of those 100-year storms, although people remembered a similar event occurring in the early 1980s. The ice did untold amounts of damage to trees, houses and utility lines and poles. What happens in an ice storm is that trees get over weighted by ice, and more ice, until the trees cant bear the weight any more. The limbs begin popping and they fall off, taking down power lines, roofs, automobiles, fences anything that is in their way. Shannon and I lived in Prairie Grove at the time, and we were lucky. We only lost power for about a day and a half. Some of my co-workers at the newspaper who lived out in the country were without power for three weeks. One of my co-workers who lived in the middle of Fayetteville, a city of 60,000 plus, was without power for over a week at his apartment complex. Roads were impassable due to debris. The National Guard came in to set up shelters, distribute food and hook up generators to city halls so the police could have electricity to run their communications centers. In other words, overnight pretty much everything was out of order. Plus the temperatures were hovering at around 0 degrees. Have you had to go for very long without power? Jim Brook asked me while we were discussing weather following the Chamber meeting. Brook said he had gone a week without power following a storm once. What you notice is the quiet, he said. No one is driving around because they cant pump gas. Thats another problem Washington County faced in 2010. Even if they could get their trucks out onto the streets to start clearing debris, once they ran out of gas in the tanks, they were out of gas, period. Thankfully the National Guard also brought fuel. The hardest hit city was Lincoln, Ark., which also happened to be where my newspaper of ce was located. We were without power for over a week in Lincoln, and we built the newspapers from our home computers. Our main of ce, located in Springdale, where the newspapers were built and printed, was also without power for a week, so the designers and pressmen had to pack up and go to Benton County to work. The papers wound up being printed in Fort Smith, Ark., about 50 miles south of Fayetteville. Jim was right about the quiet. That night without power, huddled under every blanket we could nd and sitting in the dark, we could hear trees exploding like shotgun blasts all around town. Finally about 3 a.m. the blast that shook the house occurred when a big limb from an oak tree landed on our roof. Luckily it didnt come through, but it de nitely woke Shannon and I up, and we stayed that way for the rest of the evening. Needless to say, after the storm, the three city councils started discussing among themselves and across city boundaries what had happened. They each worked up city disaster plans. Lincoln was the most proactive town, having suffered the worst damage the rst thing city manager Chuck Wood did was go out and by the city a trailer load of generators. Gathering up the debris was a task that took all three cities crews nearly a month to complete, then the stacks of broken limbs and downed trees had to be saved until FEMA could come buy and verify how much debris there was before reimbursing the cities for their clean up work. That meant there had to be a place to store the debris a very big place. Initially, a lot of the debris was on private property, and the cities required that limbs be hauled to the curb by a certain day for pickup. There was also a lot of debris on streets, in parks, on the school grounds. It was a mess. I am no Paul Bunyan, but I had to crawl up on the roof with a saw and cut down the branch lying there until it was small enough I could lift it and push it over the side. Next week well talk about tornadoes, and sirens that you probably wont hear when you need them and well revisit the New Years Day tornado in Cincinnati, Ark., and the much worse May 22, 2011 tornado that devastated Joplin, Mo.Wednesday, March 28, 2012 HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

Bare eld, Publisher Randal Seyler, Editor Cameron Everett, Production SupervisorHome delivery subscribers may be charged a higher rate for holiday editions.I havent been very involved in the social media Facebook, but a subject-line last week initiated by Jedd McFatter caught my eye. He had commented on an report done on National Public Radio on March 13 about spanking in Floridas public schools. The topic was prompted by a case in Levy County where the mother of a veyear old is suing the school system over the paddling of her child without her consent. In the NPR article, much of the material was about the paddling in Holmes County Schools. Florida is one of only 19 states that allow paddling as a disciplinary method. Each School Principal sets the policy for paddling at his or her school. At HCHS, Principal Eddie Dixon says that paddling is used for minor offenses like back-talking or consistent tardiness. Students are paddled only by Dixon or an assistant principal. There are no state regulations on what the paddles should look like, but they describe Dixons as about 16 inches by 5 inches and shaped like a boat paddle. The woodshop class is asked to make the paddles. Cole Long, an HCHS senior says, Ive never made a paddle, but Ive been on the receiving end of one. Things like throwing paper, pencils and a couple of times for cussing and then backtalking have netted this young man paddlings. Earlier this year, Cole Long won $7,200 at a bull-riding competition in Texas. Even to a bull rider, Cole said, the paddle can sting depending on whos doing the spanking. He says that he thinks all schools should paddle students because they learn discipline and respect. Bud Glover, another Bonifay resident says, I got my butt beat, and I know whats right and wrong. My children are going to know whats right and wrong. I think the problem with society is we quit paddling. Lucas Mixon, a HCHS junior says, Ive been getting them since about rst grade. Its just regular. They tell you to put your hands up on the desk and how many swats youre going to get. Jedd, a 1998 graduate of HCHS, a graduate of FSU and Denver Theological Seminary, he is State Trainer/Florida Longterm Care Ombudsman in Tallahassee. He asked his friends on facebook to comment on the article. Then he started tallying the number of teachers who were named, but I think he gave up, there were so many. I am going to include as many comments as space allows. Eric Eglund wrote, Mrs Saunders paddled our entire class at BMS for not sitting in our assigned seats when we had a substitute. Jonah Chitty: Coach Wheeler for not bringing my progress report to him. Dianne Steverson: Paddled by Mr. Bridenback in 6th grade for having a red-hot in my mouth. Andy Bowen got paddled by coach Dixon, but he warned him the day before and Andy wore 3 pairs of boxers, 2 pairs of shorts and his jeans. Bowen says, Now that I think about it we were paddled by a former NFL tight end and a prospective MLB baseball player. Amanda Hardy Eldridge got paddled by Robin Carroll. Landrea Messer Garrett got hers from Mrs. Colletti and Josh Crutch eld from Keith White. Robert Curry, one of the paddlers, was paddled by the best, he claims: Bobby (Moose) Helms. Robert remembers Miss. VanLandingham who never paddled. She punished with her raised eyebrow, a pointed nger, and a look that made you want to melt and puddle up under her desk. Jimmy Dudley mentioned Mrs. Sandra Boswell, Mr. Hester and Mrs. Donna Wilson. (The Jimmy I knew probably got a few more.) He also used the paddle himself during his short tenure at Bonifay Elementary School. Kaci Howell Johnson said she managed to squeak by without a paddling, but her dad, Andy, paddled her brother in the principals of ce and she could hear it all the way to the lunchroom. The second highest number of paddlings listed came from Jami McFatter with eleven: Posie Vaughn, Martha Brown, Madaline McFatter (her mom) for Mike Rich, Mike Anderson, Beria Dyson, DiAnn Austin, & Eddie Sims. Matt Curry scored the highest number with 14: Miss Dyson, Mrs. Flater Ms Brazile, Coach McGlaun, Bobby Newsome, Mr. Etheridge, Coach McFatter, Coach Simmons, Coach Dunn, Coach Dixon, Jerry Dixon, Mr. Locke, Mr. Lee, and Mr. Zorn.(And some I probably forgot he said) Almost all those who responded were in favor of the paddling. Paula Jernigan said, I received my rst spanking thanks to John Howell and compliments of Mrs. Geneva Austin. It may have caused me mental anguish and a sore end for awhile and Im sure I received more. However, I am proud to say I am among Holmes Countys spanked students. In looking at this list, I think what a great in uence these and others had on our lives. Hilary Booth agrees. I asked my youngest son, Glen, if he had a paddling. He said he got one from his Dad, and one from Harold Wells for hitting Calvin Sherrouse with a baseball mitt after he kept on hitting him with something. Wells played college baseball and had a very good swing. I personally know many of those who responded to Jedds survey. Most of them are professionals themselves now and believe that community sanctioned paddling is a good thing. Lemuel Toro who confessed to getting paddled by Ron Dixon and Donald Etheridge at BMS and James Lamb at Poplar Springs seemed to have some reservations about the possible harmful effects of corporal punishment, and thought there might be a more humane way of handling discipline.NPR comments on spanking in schoolsHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison RANDAL SEYLEREditorTake cover: Ice storm in ArkansasCONTACTUSPUBLISHER Nicole Bare eld: nbare eld@chipleypaper.com NEWS, SPORTS OR OPINION news@bonifaynow.com CLASSIFIED & CIRCULATION Melissa Kabaci: mkabaci@chipleypaper.com 1-800-645-8688 ADVERTISING 850-547-9414

OUTDOORS Wednesday, March 28, 2012 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection DIFFERENT PATH A good tip of the week would be to keep all those Spanish mackerel carcasses when you get through cleaning them. I know tons of Spanish mackerel are being caught and cleaned and the carcasses thrown away every day, but did you know you are throwing away some of the best red snapper bait you could possibly buy? Big red snapper in the 10to 15pound class love Spanish mackerel carcasses. Hooked through the eyes and weighted down with only a ounce lead this is one of the deadliest baits you could ever use to catch big red snapper. I simply hook one up on a spinning rod, throw it out behind the boat, place the rod in a rod holder and wait for one to get on. Using a circle hook, it is easy to take this bait away from a big fish, but leaving it in the rod holder until the snapper is hooked ensures you will not pull it away from a fish. Not many cobia have been caught, but the ones that have run from 40-80 pounds. There have been very few small cobia caught this year. Probably the first one caught in this area was the smallest at 27 pounds. Pompano arent here in great numbers, but there are enough to fill a limit if only they would bite. It happens every year. The March run of pompano might be in the thousands, but for some reason they dont want to bite like the ones that arrive in April. Maybe they are the same pompano and just get hungrier over the period of a month. Sheepshead are starting to get thick at the jetties. They congregate to spawn in the spring and are easy to catch on live or dead shrimp. I would advise going by Buddy Gandys seafood market and buying fresh shrimp over the shrimp you might find elsewhere. Sometimes the cup shrimp are the dead ones that die and spoil in the live shrimp tanks and are scooped up and cupped up and frozen and sold for bait. Its not hard to see why a fish would prefer a fresh shrimp over one that was old even before it was frozen. The fishing is starting to turn on, so with the extra hour we have after work head to the beach and get after them. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net Turkey hunter teaches himself outdoors skillsBy STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation CommissionMost of the year, you will nd Jose Ponce running his lawn care business in Bay County. Come the spring, however, he will quickly tell you he would rather be turkey hunting. The 57-year-old Ponce and his wife, Dorothy, live in Panama City. Dorothy is a Bay High School graduate. Ponces love of hunting dates back to his boyhood years growing up in a rural area outside Guadalajara, Mexico. When I was a kid, I always played like I was an Indian. I had a sling-shot, and Id get a pocketful of rocks, and Id try and sneak up on doves and rabbits, he said. Whatever I killed Mama would cook for us. When I killed something, that meant we didnt have to eat our chickens; at least not that day. Ponce said his family was poor. He had nine brothers and sisters, all living in a small house, without running water or electricity. His father was a tenant farmer. In 1971, Ponce, looking for a better life, immigrated to California, became a U.S. citizen and found work at a horse stable. The owner of the stable was very good to me, Ponce said. He was almost like a father. Ponce met Dorothy in California. They married, and they returned to Bay County in 1977. When Ponce moved to Northwest Florida, he was amazed at the variety of wildlife and the opportunities for someone to hunt. Although most hunters have someone introduce them to the sport, Ponce learned to turkey hunt by himself. The rst thing I bought was a Lynchs box call. They are really good, Ponce said. Then, I got a mouth yelper. We would go to Walmart and I would walk behind my wife and yelp like a turkey. It would drive her crazy. A week into Floridas ve-week season, Ponce is turning his attention to hunting locally. If previous seasons are an indication, he will bag his two birds in Florida before seasons end. Florida duo wins Redfish Tour in Port St. Joe Special to The Times-Advertiser Bobby Weir of Santa Rosa Beach and Matt Schoen of Freeport weighed in a two-redfish limit that totaled 13.02 pounds to win the IFA Redfish Tour event in Port St. Joe on March 17. To win the event, which operated out of Port St. Joe Marina, the duo topped a large field of twoangler teams to take home a new, fully-rigged Ranger Banshee Extreme powered by a 60-horsepower, four-stroke Yamaha outboard and equipped with a Power-Pole shallow water anchor, Minn Kota trolling motor, Humminbird electronics, Blue Point Fabrication metal work, Bobs 4-inch Ultra Light Jackplate and a Loadmaster trailer valued at $30,000. Despite the foggy conditions, Weir and Schoen ran 45 miles fishing in the Apalachicola area with jigs and Berkley Gulp. The teams catch included a 7.65-pound redfish, which netted the team the $500 Berkeley Gulp Big Fish Award with a $250 Cabelas gift card, courtesy of Berkley. Because we were expecting the fog, the conditions didnt have much of an impact, Weir said. We were pretty excited to win the event. Second-place finishers Chad Dufrene of Purvis, Miss., and Jay Cedotal of Prairieville, La., weighed in 12.80 pounds. The twotime IFA winners in 2011 ran 50 miles catching their redfish by tight-lining Gulp. The team also won an additional $1,000 for the Cabelas Angler Cash Award. It was foggy and the tide was extremely low, Dufrene said. But overall we were happy with our performance. Brad Henry of Dawson, Ga., and Jason Bryan of Albany, Ga., brought 12.36 pounds to the scales to win third place. Fishing locally in the Port St. Joe area, Henry and Bryan fished grass flats with jerkbaits and spoons. The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabelas continues to draw redfish anglers from Texas to the Carolinas and beyond, offering two-angler teams the opportunity to compete in six different divisions, each offering a two-event regular season. Teams fishing any two of the IFAs 12 regular-season events and one regional event are automatically qualified for a noentry-fee championship event, pitting qualifiers from each of the six divisions for a combined $118,450 in payouts and prize packages, as well as a shot at the coveted Cabelas Overall Divisional Team of the Year Award for the six regular-season division winners.Special to The News HeraldJose Ponce poses with a mature tom he killed with his black-powder shotgun.

At right, Tony Stewart is the winner of the Auto Club 400.Stewart wins rain shortened Auto Club 400By CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Clamb@chipleypaper.com Tony Stewart won his second race of the season in the Auto Club 400 in Fontana, Calif. Smoke qualified 10th for the race and came out around Kyle Busch in lap 85 to hold on for the win. Only 129 laps of the 200 scheduled laps were run because of rain. But since the race was past the half-way point, the race was called with Stewart in the first place position. This was the first ever rainshortened race at the Auto Club Speedway. Jeff Gordon and his pit crew were penalized when Gordon, doing what Gordon always does when that jack drops on the left side of the car, sped out of pit road before the gas man gets the gas can out of the car giving the gas man the scare of his life. The crew also let a tire get away from them in another pit stop. Gordon finished 17th and a lap down. Joey Logano won the Nationwide Royal Purple 300. Three years ago he was the youngest driver in Nationwide Series history to win a race. Now at the age of 21 he has pulled off 10 victories in the Nationwide Series. This race had only one caution that came on lap 123 for rain. This was the longest stretch of green flag racing at the Auto Club Speedway in a Sprint Cup race. The on lap 129 came the red flag and the race was called because of the rain. In other NASCAR news, the Sprint All-Star Fan Vote is now open.

Wilson Biophilia Center to compete in the first Emerald Coast Regional Envirothon. The students were tested in five categories: soils and land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife and current environmental issues. Putting environmental knowledge to the test By ANGEL McCURDY315-4432 | @AngelMnwfdn amccurdy@nwfdailynews.com FREEPORT More than 100 high students circulated around the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center on Friday to test their environmental knowledge in the first Emerald Coast Regional Envirothon. Students from Bay, Holmes, Walton and Washington counties competed as teams to be tested on regional and global environmental issues in five categories. We started studying in February and have spent hours on this, said sophomore Bryanna Muscella from Walton High School. We had to study aquatic ecology, soil, forestry, wildlife and current issues. Tents and displays were set up for each of the topics. At the aquatic station, various water bugs in formaldehyde were displayed. One group, named Standing Tall Team, finished its aquatics test long before the 30minute time limit expired. The teenagers felt confident of their chance to win, which would advance them to state and then national competitions to vie for scholarships. This is all about learning community stewardship, plus they get a day outside, said Gail Carmody, on-site coordinator for the event. Community stewardship is important to all of us, and its important that these students know about ecology. Volunteers manned each display and helped with the tests. For us, its about future conservation, said John Soba with the Florida Forest Service, who was at the forestry station. For this portion, we chose some common trees, things they would see so they can apply it later. Skulls, snakes and even a snapping turtle were used for the wildlife test. A team from Chipley High School in Washington County placed first overall. Second place went to the Hippies from Walton High. Beth Yates, a marine science and chemistry teacher at Walton, said her students have shown a lot of enthusiasm for the outdoors and conservation. I want them to really understand that science is the world, and not just between the covers of their textbooks, she said. Sponsors line up for 8th annual Freedom ClassicBy BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com MARIANNA Gulf Coast States junior college softball slide continued to near the bottom of the Panhandle Conference standings following Saturdays latest misery. Chipola withstood two deficits in winning the first game of a doubleheader 6-5 and the host Lady Indians secured the sweep with an 11-3 rout in a six-inning run-rule in the second game. Chipola moved into a first-place tie with Tallahassee at 5-1 in the conference, while also improving to 37-6 overall with its fourth straight win and 11th triumph in the past 12 games. GC lost for the fourth consecutive game and for the fifth time in its last six in dipping to 3-5 in the Panhandle. The Lady Commodores (26-11) once were tied for first place, but that seems long ago after falling in two straight sweeps. GC is now three games behind coleaders Tallahassee and Chipola, both of which swept the Lady Commodores this week. GC opened with a 3-0 lead in the first inning of Game 1 on the strength of Hilary Chapmans two-run single to score Amanda Grimaldo and Hilari Hopkins. The Lady Commodores had three of their six hits in the first inning against winning pitcher Eva Voortman. Chipola chewed into the lead with single runs in the second and third innings before taking the lead in the fourth. Chelsey Steedley and Hayley Parker had an RBI single and double, respectively, off GC starter and loser Ollivia McLemore to give the Lady Indians a 4-3 advantage. GC tied the game in the seventh when Hannah Strickland scored on Hopkins single. Chapman singled for her third hit to bring around Hopkins for a 5-4 GC lead. GC steps out of conference for a home doubleheader against Gadsden State today starting at noon.

LocalWednesday, March 28, 2012By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County Health Departments Moises Vallejos has a mission, and Tuesday he plans to take it before the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners. Vallejos is part of a coalition seeking to bring the DeltAlert program to the county which would provide email, text or phone messages in case of a pending weather emergency, such as a tornado. The commissioners considered their resolution during their regular meeting Tuesday. Results of the meeting were not available before press time, but may be found at www.bonifaynow. com. Just because we havent had an emergency doesnt mean we wont have one, Vallejos said. The system also can be used to let residents know about other things as well, such as county meetings, water or sewage issues, or even school closings. DeltAlert would allow the countys emergency management director to send voice, email, SMS/ text, Facebook and Twitter alerts in the case of a countywide emergency, according to a company news release. The system also can automatically deliver National Weather Service alerts. Funding the alert system is one problem, Vallejos said. It costs about $4,600 a year to participate in DeltAlert. Finding the information for the contact list also can be a problem. Because the county does not have a database available, such as the list of customers for a utility, the county would most likely have to purchase that information from a provider. An alternative, having people self-register, would not cost the county any extra, but getting people to participate can be problematic, Vallejos said. The DeltAlert System Coalition has proposed that several entities come together to pay the expense. The health department, Doctors Memorial Hospital, the sheriffs of ce, the county 911 of ce, and BOCC would all contribute $450 toward the expense; the Bonifay Police and the city of Bonifay would contribute $225 each; the Emergency Operations Center Weather Module would pay $19,00. Bonifay City Council Member Lawrence Cloud said on Feb. 27 at the City Council Meeting that 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, said Cloud. Weve got to nd a way to increase public awareness of this service and try to increase the publics participation. 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, said Cloud. I think if we could get enough participation we should look into this, said Council Member Roger Brooks. This could help our emergency management agencies quite a bit.

Ponce de Leon Town Clerk Beth Peterson presented the request to the HCSD at the school boards Feb. 15 meeting. Superintendent Gary Galloway said the board would need to take the matter to its attorney before proceeding. Holmes County School Board Attorney Lucas Taylor offered two recommendations during a Feb. 28 board meeting. The rst was to adjust the lease to add indemnity of the property to the contract, meaning PDL would take full responsibility of the property and any liability. This ensures if something were to happen to someone on the property and the property owners were sued, PDL would step in and take full responsibility. This also would require PDL to show proof of insurance once a year, or the contract would become void. Taylor said the indemnity doesnt save the school board from the full impact of a lawsuit because the board still would have to answer the summons and pay lawyer fees. His second recommendation was to deed the building to PDL, which would free the school board of all liability. The property is useless to us as it is, and it comes down to the question of Is the property worth the risk of a lawsuit? said board member Gary Scott. After the property was appraised, Larry Zorn with HCSD Facilities said it looked as though the building wasnt even on HCSDs property. The HCSD will do a title search and review the lease, which was established in 1988. The district also agreed to keep PDL updated on the progress made. In other news, the HCSD approved of overnight trips requested by the Holmes County High School JROTC, Future Business Leaders of America, Key Club and PDLH FBLA. The JROTC will be attending the Conduct State Drill Meet on April 14 held in Lakeland and the Conduct State Ri e Meet on April 28 in Cape Coral; HCHS Key Club will be attending the Leadership Skills State Convention May 10-13 in Orlando; and Ponce de Leon and Holmes Countys FBLA groups will be attending the Florida FBLA State Leadership Conference April 27 through May 1 in Orlando. AG BUILDING from page A1Times-Advertiser. Seats 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. Sims announced during the last meeting that he would not be running for re-election. Im retiring to pursue a few educational projects, said Sims. Cloud resigned his position as Seat 2 to run for mayor and is currently running unopposed. There are four candidates running for Seat 2, including Ray Brooks, JoAnn Foxworth, Andrew Granger and Larry White; and Seat 4, currently held by Micah McCormick is unopposed. Sims was re-elected mayor of Bonifay in March 2010 and defeated JoAnn Foxworth, who had vacated Seat 4 to run for mayor and was lled in by Lawrence Cloud, who was unopposed. During the same election in 2010 Micah McCormick. McCormick was reelected for Seat 2 defeating Ray Brooks. BONIFAY from page A1Tallahassee. He taught at Bonifay Elementary School and coached at Holmes County High School for four years. He spent 16 years in educational technology sales and management. He has been married to Marcy Elmore Dixon for 24 years. They have a 19-year-old son, Eli, and a 16-yearold daughter, Jordan. He has two brothers, Ron and Johnny, and is the son of Jerry and Charlotte Dixon. As your next superintendent, I will work hard to make a great school system even better. I will take responsibility for the safety, security, and education of the students and be accountable to the people of Holmes County, Dixon said. My plan is to focus on offering a broader range of opportunities that target the success of all students. An open door policy will be continued in order to listen to the concerns of parents and students to ensure that all stakeholders are treated fairly, consistently and with respect, he said. Teachers will be provided support and resources to maximize their ability to educate students in the 21stcentury, Dixon said. I will provide leadership that encourages employees to be nancially conservative and utilize resources and personnel for the maximum bene t of students, he added. Children today come to school with a long list of circumstances and issues that create educational needs outside of the traditional classroom. They also face an ever changing future. As educators, we must exhaust all resources to address their needs and prepare them to succeed as adults. It is my goal that all students re ect upon their school days with same fondness I have, Dixon said. It is my commitment that each and every student be given the opportunity to ful ll their potential. It is my promise to continue a tradition of excellence in Holmes County Schools. DIXON from page A1 Panel OKs Vernon festival grantBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY The Washington County Tourist Development Council approved on Monday a $2,000 grant for the town of Vernons annual Firecracker Day. Vernons Fourth of July event features the Miss Firecracker Pageant and a reworks display, and Vernon City Council Member Tina Sloan brought her grant request before the council. We make most of the money for the festival from the pageant, Sloan said. The pageant is key. I dont want to begrudge Vernon, or anyone, their reworks, but how much is the city setting aside for the process? asked TDC member Ted Everett. Everett said the TDC had budgeted $2,000 for the festival, although the grant request was for $3,000. We understand that were only getting $2,000, Sloan said. Michelle Cook is our new mayor and she lled out the form. Everett said the TDC was decreasing the amount of money available in grants to the city. According to the grant request, the Firecracker festival will cost abot $10,500. The bulk of the $2,000 will be spent on advertising, according to the request. Council member Jim Town said he thought the event had low attendance by tourists. Gwen March, TDC member and Vernon City Council member, said that the event was primarily attended by local families. Attendance last year was 569 with 99 visitors coming from out of county, or 17 percent. Sloan said the attendance numbers were likely lower than they should be since parking was not controlled. This year we are going to try and control parking more and get a better count, she said. This year the festival will also feature country music acts and a political speech event, Sloan said. The council voted to approve the $2,000 request, with March abstaining from the vote. The council also voted to accept the resignation of Allen White from the panel. White was a bed tax collector and vice chairman of the TDC. BOCC to consider emergency warning systemA8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser

Wednesday, MARCH 28 2012 From Staff ReportsBONIFAY The Holmes County High School Chorus performed Decades of Music March 23-25 at the HCHS Auditorium. They performed and sang popular hits from the 1950s to present day, such as Jailhouse Rock, There Goes My Baby, Stand By Me and tributes to Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson, Queen and Justin Bieber. Disco Fever went alongside dance music from the s and included more than a dozen solos featured with a live band. Soloists included Nic Bell, Jeremy Bailey, Braeden Cooper, Carlton Hedman, Zac Garner, Kayln Hardin, Haylee Harris, Haleigh Music, Julie Wells, Chelsey Cullifer and Alex Langley. Decades of Music was a challenge because it involved two classes, and the majority of the work had to be done after school, said Ricky Ward, HCHS drama/chorus director. The majority of them had to pull double duty because they were working on doing Footloose, too. As always, theyve done a great job. I cant say enough how proud I am of them, all of the work theyve put into it. We havent had a show like this in almost two years. Weve got ve students on vocal scholarships. Theres so much talent here, and we want to show the world how talented and special they are, Ward said. Theyve been working so hard, and theyve had performances back to back and had to deal with technical dif culties during some of the shows. The HCHS Chorus performed a portion of their Decades production during the Downhome Street Festival. One thing I would like for them to know is to know that theyre doing well enough so that they can cope with unforeseen circumstances, and thats what they did very well, Ward said. Im very proud of them. Now we are in full force for Footloose. It will be fun music and fun dancing. We had great auditions, and weve got the best cast for this show. Theyve been working hard with the choreography and the live band. The stage version will be different from the one that came out in the 80s and the remake that came out recently, but the audience can expect all the same songs they love from Footloose. The drama department will perform Footloose at 7 p.m. May 10 and May 12-15 at the HCHS auditorium. Weve got over 12 seniors involved in the show, and its hard to be losing so many, but weve got many talented young ones coming in, too, Ward said. We teach them where theyre supposed to go, what its like to work with a team, but I think the biggest aspect taken from these classes and these shows is the con dence gained by being able to get out there and show people what youre capable of. I really think this is something that can help them get far in all aspects of their lives. They can take that con dence back with them to classroom and conquer those tests. Im hoping its given them a lot of con dence, and I believe it has.

He is 37 years old and has a wife and four children. By JOHN WHITTINGTONSpecial to the NewsC CHIPLEIPLEY John Whittington, a student at Chipola College, has started a project to restore the Washington Primitive Baptist Church, also known as Hard Labor Creek Church. Whittington is an Honor student at Chipola. He is undertaking the project for Phi Theta Kappa, the honors fraternity at the college. The church was rst established in 1848, and then rebuilt in 1931. This church is one of the beautiful historic sites of Washington County. The roof is in disrepair and if not restored soon the old church has the potential to leak, which would lead to rotting. The best bid on a new roof is $3,200. If enough funds are raised Whittington would also like to replace the doors, x a few broken window panes, and hopefully repaint the outside of the church. Whittington says, This being a community service project I would like to get the community involved as much as possible. If anyone has information on the church or cemetery, I would love to know it. Things like pictures, documents, or just some facts will be good. Donations are now being accepted. Any and all donations will be used directly for the Hard Labor Creek Church restoration project. Anyone who would like to donate or provide information may contact John Whittington at 557-0006 or at johnwhit2011@yahoo. com or mail at 1143Whittington Road Chipley, FL 32428.From left are Amber Knight, 1st runner-up; Jordan Rolling, Pre-Teen Miss PdLE; Autumn Frutos-Creamer, 2nd runner-upStudent launches church restoration project WALK FOR ANDyY Crossword PPUZZLESOLUTIONOLUTION ONON PAPAGEE B5Ponce de Leon Elementary School crowns queensSpecial To ExtraPONCEPONCE de LEON LEON On March 10, 39 lovely ladies graced the stage of Ponce de Leon High School for the annual Ponce de Leon Elementary Beauty Pageants.

FAITH BSectionwww.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSpecial To ExtraAn expected total of some 20 million guests and visitors will soon join the Jehovahs Witnesses world-wide in commemoration of Jesus Christs sacri cial death. The annual Christian observance is to be held after sundown, Thursday, April 5. The Bonifay function is open to the public and will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. at Kingdom Hall, 1300 East Highway 90 in Bonifay. The simple honorary ceremony will be of ciated by William L. Murray, local minister of the Bonifay Congregation of Jehovahs Witnesses. The one-hour gathering will consist of a brief instructive discourse, along with a review of the original Biblical proceedings, and reading of the exact words of the historical rst observance held by Jesus Christ himself with his eleven faithful Apostles. John F. Gilbert, a Bonifay elder, stated that This Scriptural observance was rmly instituted by Jesus Christ shortly before his death, and it continues down to this day as a special world-wide occasion, in recognition of this most important history. He revealed that Virtually every home in Holmes and Washington Counties is to receive a personal engraves incitation to share in this annual meeting. Brother Gilbert serves as a local Bible instructor, and service group overseer of the body of elders here. He explained: This occasion is often termed The Lord Evening Meal, and is most proper response to the direct command by Jesus for all Christians yearly to Keep doing this, in remembrance of me. He declared, This is the only religious day celebrated by Jehovahs Witnesses, and is it faithfully commemorated annually world-wide on the exact day which corresponds to the ancient Hebrew date of Christs death. Thus, after sundown, at 7:30 p.m. locally, and in each of the more than 109,000 Kingdom Halls in 236 countries and islands of the sea, the brief ceremony will memorialize Jesus unsel sh sacri cial death on the sacred date corresponding to Nisan 14 of the Bibles lunar calendar. He said that last year visitors of many varied religious backgrounds joined Jehovahs Witnesses in displaying due respect for Jesus, as the total attendance around the earth last spring reached 19,372,737. He pointed out that over seven million Witnesses were joined by some 12 million guests and observers. Mr. Gilbert noted that no collections are taken at any meetings of Jehovahs Witnesses. Exact meeting times for the Memorial at other Kingdom Halls are available by phone or news media in those areas. Special seating, parking and transportation arrangements have been made in advance, he said, in order to hospitably accommodate the large number of expected good-will observers from Vernon, Ebro, Esto, Caryvile, Westville, New Hope and Bonifay.

Gods grace is abundant, but it cannot be given without being asked for; grace must be freely asked for and freely given. This can only happen through sincere and heartfelt prayer. Over and over again we see throughout the Bible that Gods chosen ones come to him on bent knees with prayer and supplication. The godly call upon God in their time of need whereas the godless rely upon their own strength. Prayer, at bottom, is nothing more than a spirit of openness to what God is telling us, but it is also a conversation, with us asking God for help, and thanking Him for his many gifts to us. Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. Luke 18:1 Wednesday, March 28, 2012 Page 4By Rev. James L. Snyder Fun is a relative quantity. One persons fun may be somebody elses drudgery and pain. I know someone, and her name shall remain anonymous, whose idea of fun is rooting through thrift stores all day long. That concept of fun has never darkened the shadowy corridors of my mind. The idea of spending time in the park has to be amended to include one very important ingredient. On my own, I probably would not even think of going to the park. Not that I do not like the park, I just would not come up with the idea all by myself. Then, the important equation of fun is a little granddaughter. A day at the park by myself does not equal to very much fun. After all, I have talked to myself and I am rather boring. I have heard all my stories before and by the time, I tell myself the story for the 19th time it is no longer funny. A day at the park with the granddaughter does equal fun. I think grandchildren are Gods way of reminding grandfathers how much energy we do not have and, for that matter, never had. The date was set and my wife and I set off to take our little granddaughter to the park. On the main features of this park was a merry-go-round. I am rather certain they had merry-go-round when I was a child but for the life of me, I cannot remember the last time I took a spin. As we set out for our destination in the park, I nonchalantly told the little granddaughter that there was a merry-go-round in the park. That was the end of my talk for the trip. The whole way there, all she could talk about was the merry-go-round and how fast it went in how many ponies there were. By the time we got to the merry-go-round I had learned about all there is to know about a merry-goround from a six-year-olds viewpoint. According to her, the merry-go-round is about the most fun you could ever have in the whole wide world. And, she emphasized, Im serious. We rounded the corner, before us was the park and in the middle of the park was this mysterious, mystical merry-go-round. It elicited a deep heartfelt Wow, from the younger member of our walking troop. She immediately began running and pulling me along to the point where I had to walk a little faster than I normally walk. I mean, at my age running is completely out of the question. And so, she ran, I shuf ed enthusiastically and before long we were in front of the merry-go-round. Isnt it beautiful, grandpa, she almost whispered. We did not stand long admiring the merry-goround. She let out a squeal and said, Come on, grandpa. Lets go ride the merry-go-round. My plans were very simple. I would let her get on the merry-go-round, pay for the ticket, sit down on the bench and watch her go round and round and round. Well, that was my plan. She, on the other hand, had other plans. With almost superhuman force she drug me pass the admission gate, I hardly had enough time to pay for the ride and to the pony she was going to ride. This is my pony, grandpa. Wheres yours? I quickly searched my plans and could nowhere nd any notation about riding a pony on a merrygo-round on this particular day. Instead, I helped her up on her pony and I stood by her and said, Well do this one together. She was too excited about riding the merry-go-round that she did not respond. I grabbed hold of one part of the pony, right next to us was another pony and I held onto that. Are we ready to go, grandpa? No sooner had she said that until the bell rang and the merry-go-round began going round. And round. And round. Not only that, the pony she was on, went up and down and the pony next to her that I was hanging onto went down and up. It was as if I was in perpetual motion. It seemed as if that merry-go-round ride lasted 17 hours. Eventually, with my head spinning and my stomach doing whatever stomachs do, we came to the end of our merry-go-round. Being grateful that we have nished our ride, I proceeded to disengage her from the pony. However, that was not her plan. Oh, grandpa, just one more time. The problem with grandfathers is that nowhere in their vocabulary lurks in any fashion any sound resembling no. Consequently, we went round on the merry-goround just one more time. I learned a deep lesson that afternoon. When a little granddaughter says just one more time, it is not in any literal sense of the word that they say it. Im not prepared to say how many times we went on that merry-go-round, needless to say, by the end of the afternoon I was in a complete whirl not knowing whither I was coming or whither I was going. As we walked over to get our ice cream treat, I remembered what the apostle Paul said about Timothy. And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15(KJV). The Rev. James L.
