Pay Tribute to Those We Remember Memorial Day 2012 Honor th e special people whove touched your life family, friends, Veterans and have passed on. This special Memorial Day tribute publishes on May 23 in the News and the Times and our websites. Contact us at 850-638-0212 or 547-9414 for more details. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY With the help of County Attorney Jeff Goodman, the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners composed and approved of Resolution 2012-02 during their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, April 24, stating that they are fully against the state-sponsored septic tank bill. This our latest successful attempt to keep our citizens away from the long ngers of the money-hungry legislature, Goodman said. This is another attempt to make our voice known to the Legislature against this bill. As a citizen of Holmes County Im backing it whole-heartedly. The resolution supports the proposed House Bill 1263, which repeals certain parts of the statewide onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems evaluation program, known as Senate Bill 550. Goodman said that he also completed the ordinance requested by County Commissioner Kenneth Williams during the last commission meeting and approved for Goodman to draw up the ordinance. Commissioner Kenneth Williams said he was concerned about purchasing pipes for residents and collecting sales tax. When a pipe needs replacing, the county has been receiving money from the resident to purchase a pipe at county rates and, in turn, the county retains the sales tax. I dont think we should be in the pipe buying business and collecting sales tax, Williams said. We should make them purchase the pipes and well even give them the name and number of the place we buy ours if they want it. The board approved of Williams suggestion to change their requirements so residents will purchase the pipes on their own.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, May 2, 2012 One the same token I think if a person buys a pipe and were maintaining it, then they should buy the pipe and the county put it in with no charge, Williams said. The board approved to modify the ordinance so that if someone has a pipe put in and if the pipe corrodes or rusts, then the person will pay for the pipe, but the county will wave the permit and installation fees. Goodman said that because it is an ordinance, it would need a public hearing in their first meeting in May. The board approved of Goodman getting a permanent easement to a residence on Weak Street to address any flooding issues that property may have in the future. Williams informed the commissioners and attorney that the states new policy during a tax audit was to take the amount of money they thought each county owed and leave it to the county to prove what they owe before they can retrieve the money. We got a bill for $32,000 and when we went in a broke it down to what we actually owe it was only $7,000, Williams said. We need to fight this. Goodman agreed. Its the exact opposite of what they use to do, Goodman said. They would tell us what we owed and then would leave it to us to contest it. Now they just take the money and leave it to the counties to prove what they owe before they can get the money back. In other buisness, the board approved of the proclamation to make May Mental Health Month promoted by Life Management. The board also approved of adding Thomas Drive as No. 1 and Todd Rulliford Road as No. 2 to the roads in desperate need of repair in the upcoming Small County Outreach Program, which includes bridge repair. Commissioner Jim King pressed to have a few roads added to the list of SCOP roads in need of paving, which were Old Mt. Zion Road, Hardy Skipper Road and Line Road. County Engineer Cliff Knauer agreed to add those roads to the SCOP list. County Commissioner Monty Merchant informed the commissioners that there was a guardrail out on County Road 179A. After being informed that the driver that hit the guardrail didnt have insurance, King said that the driver should be held accountable to pay for the repairs. We could get the judge to say that he owes us, but the problem arises when it comes to collecting it, Goodman said. Goodman confirmed that because it was considered a safety issue that the guardrail was out that they would consider it an emergency to have it repaired, which ruled out them having to bid it out. Merchant then requested that the county look into getting an annual contract for guardrail repairs so that the guardrails could be repaired immediately after an accident and Goodman agreed to look into it. Merchant then asked about animal control, saying there was an elderly woman who kept calling, saying she couldnt get to her mailbox because of a pack of wild dogs kept intimidating her. Williams said he thought the Sheriffs Office should filter the calls for such matters. Weve got an excellent ordinance in place, we just need an agency to carry it out, Goodman said. Ill look into what we can do. The Board approved of purchasing two van hitches to hook up the equipment trailers to the state vans so that the inmates could continue to work throughout the county. They approved with a vote of 4 to 1, with Merchant voting no. Those are state vehicles, Merchant said. What if they decided to stop providing us with inmates? Are we going to give our hitches back? Knauer gave an update that they would be starting the patchwork for County Road 181 on April 25 and should finish with the patchwork on April 27. Knauer explained that he was still in the process of trying to get the 319 Grant for Old Mt. Zion Road to repair the erosion issues. The 319 Grant is provided by the Florida Spring Initiative with the Department of Environmental Protection through the Clean Water Act to improve water quality and requires a 40 percent match, said Knauer. Its not as good as it was before but its better then nothing, and the submission deadline is May 25. Knauer said that hes trying to see if they can provide an in-kind match of materials or services for the 40 percent. Were really stressing the fact that were a Rural Area of Economic Concern, Knauer said. The board approved of continuing with their current auditor services, Carl Riggs and Ingram, renewing their annual contract. One of their recommendations was with the road department keeping up with their equipment inventory, said Chairman Ron Monk. Our financial situation is good and he gives some great advice. They are very good at what they do. The board approved of allowing the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance to attach equipment to three of the countys towers to enhance the broadband in Holmes County. Is this even going to happen? Williams asked. Executive Director for Holmes County Chamber of Commerce assured Williams that it was underway, explaining that this was just making way so that Internet providers for broadband services will be able to come in and provide their services to the residents of Holmes County. Entering into this contract would be a bene t to the citizens of Holmes County, Goodman said. The Board addressed the issue of the location of the 911 Department. Weve faced the conundrum of either moving out to the Emergency Operations Center, which will cost $13,000 in moving expenses alone, plus the additional expenses per year for the additional T1 line, said 911 Director Clint Erickson. Or, with the approval of the city of Bonifay, we can expand where were at by moving me across the street and using my of ce as additional space, which will cost $3,300. Erickson explained that they were blessed with a grant for not only new equipment, but additional equipment. The problem was the need of additional room to house and use the equipment. We built a building speci cally for this and now were not even going to use it? Williams asked. Goodman suggested that Erickson show them a diagram of what space theyre working with as well as a list of exact costs for each option. Merchant suggested no matter what they do they should keep all the 911 Departments together and that they should reserve their decision for the next commission meeting when they could have the sheriff attend as well. The board approved of Goodman and Merchants recommendation, and Erickson agreed to put the presentation together for the next meeting. The board approved of allowing new road crew employees to take rain days as soon as they are hired, with a vote of 4 to 1, with Merchant voting no. Originally the policy was that if a new employee was within his probationary period then he could not take rain days, which are days that when its raining and they are unable to do work they will be sent home but are paid for those days. I dont think its right to take a day of pay away from a man when hes working 40 hours a week and hes made to go home and not get paid, King said. The board approved of allowing the director of the Holmes County Public Library to apply for three grants for the library youth summer programs. We usually can get the matches for those grant through the community or The Friends of the Library, said Director of Holmes County Library Suzie Harris. Its been such a success. Weve gone from snow in July to NASA visiting. Most of our children cant go out and see these wonders so we bring it to them the best we can. Harris con rmed that there was an attendance of 443 children at last years snow day. The board approved of Commissioner Phillip Musics request to haul paid gravel to a resident and to haul paid dirt for Red Hill United Methodist Church to complete their project. Williams informed the board that they were going to have a demo of a new road grater, that a leak at the shop was in need of repair for over a year and is damaging supplies and that they had applied for a grant towards a generator for the courthouse. Its a big enough generator to provide for the entire courthouse no problem, Williams said. The match is between $2,000 and $4,000 for a $29,000 generator with the possibility for an in-kind match for labor. We needed to apply for the grant that day, so it seemed like a no-brainer. The board agreed with Williams. The next Holmes County Board of County Commissioners meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. on May 8 at the BOCC next to the courthouse. News Flash!

For those of you who dont know X Factor, it is a television music competition created by Simon Cowell, who is currently a judge on American Idol. Thousands compete for the prize of a recording contract as well as extensive media coverage and publicity, giving thousands the opportunity to get their foot in the music industrys door. Moore said she was more excited then nervous and was spending most of her time trying to choose what songs she would be singing in front of the X Factor judges. This time Ill be singing in front of the actual judges of X Factor, Moore said. Im excited about being able to y out there and have the experience. Even if I dont make it, I can be proud that I made it that far. She said she draws a lot of inspiration from her favorite country music singers, such as Martina McBride and Loretta Lynn, but the biggest contributor to her success was the love and support of her family her mother, Sherry, her father, Mike, and her sister, Mikayla. My mom, my dad and my sister are my support system, Moore said. My sister is my biggest fan. I appreciate everything theyve ever done for me and always supporting me and willing to follow me everywhere I go. She said with her support team going with her to the competition in North Carolina that she wasnt afraid and no matter what shes happy to have the opportunity for such an experience. Ive lived in Bonifay my whole life and I just think its awesome that someone like me from a small town could have the opportunity to compete in something as big as X Factor, Moore said.

By REP. MATT GAETZ AND SEN. DON GAETZ A person is justi ed in the use of deadly force and does not have a duty to retreat if he or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony. Chapter 776.012, Florida Statutes. The shooting death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Thankfully, our Constitution leaves it to a jury of 12 citizens, not a gaggle of cable news demagogues, to decide whether a crime was committed and, if so, who committed it. After all, our system of justice exists to resolve the tough cases not just the easy ones. While motions are led and trial dates are negotiated in the prosecution of George Zimmerman, the medias obsession has shifted to Floridas Stand Your Ground law. Riding the extreme rhetoric of Al Sharpton and encouraged by the concerns of Attorney General Eric Holder, anti-gun groups have already declared that law guilty of murder and sentenced it for repeal by the state legislature. As two legislators who will vote on the issue, we want Northwest Floridians to know where we stand as we approach what is sure to be a well-orchestrated, wellnanced attack on the Second Amendment. Assuredly, there are very few laws on the books so pure they cant be improved. In fact, much of our effort in Tallahassee has been to repeal bad, unnecessary, burdensome laws. But it wasnt the fault of Chapter 776.012, Florida Statutes, that Trayvon Martin is dead. If Zimmerman claims a Stand Your Ground defense, that still doesnt make the law wrong. Claims are made in court every day. The court, not the media talking heads, decides if those claims are valid. Without question, the Legislature should stand its ground and defend good law in the face of self-serving, over-hyped rhetoric from the far left. In 2005 when Stand Your Ground was enacted, Florida was one of only a few states that required a victim to run rather than stand his or her ground when attacked by a criminal while using deadly force. Before Stand Your Ground, Florida law favored the attacker. Consider an elderly woman in a dimly lit parking lot or a college girl walking to her dorm at night. If either was attacked, her duty was to turn her back and try to ee, probably be overcome and raped or killed. Prior to Stand Your Ground, that victim didnt have the choice to defend herself, to meet force with force. Calls to repeal Stand Your Ground are antiwoman. Imposing a dutytoee places the safety of the rapist above a womans own life. In fact, until Stand Your Ground was passed, criminals were suing victims because victims, in protecting themselves, were allegedly using excessive force against the criminals. Stand Your Ground simply says, if you have a right to be somewhere and if youre not breaking the law, you may defend yourself to prevent imminent death or bodily harm. You dont have an obligation to do so. You have the right. Those who use every tragedy as an excuse to water down our right to keep and bear arms are already exploiting Trayvon Martins death for their own purposes. In the legislative debate that is sure to come, we will remind them that Stand Your Ground is not a right-wing overreaction. It was passed by a bi-partisan majority of the Florida Legislature. We will remind them that Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith, while a state senator, was one of the sponsors. Most important, we will remind the critics and the cynics why this law is necessary, who it protects, and, if it were repealed, whose side the Legislature would be taking in that dimly-lit parking lot or that darkened college dormitory. Sen. Don Gaetz and Rep. Matt Gaetz represent Northwest Florida in the state legislature. The senator lives in Niceville. His son, an attorney, resides in Fort Walton Beach.

Call 638-0212. Good to know Dear Editor, Your article on The Rules of newspaper announcements from The Washington County News dated April 25, 2012, was good timing for the upcoming elections. The Five Ws and One H, should apply to all kinds of advertisements. Such as posters, banners, yers and etc. Many times I cannot nd all of the information that would interest me to want to attend the events. Jim Ackerman Chipley Be prepared for election season Dear Editor, Only a few times in American history have we the people faced a more critical hour. This year, 2012, we will choose a President. Perhaps even more critical to our survival will be the conduct of our Congress. Congress controls the money our federal government spends. Congress can stop treasonous bills by refusing to fund them. Remember, as do our military, the president, Congress and senate all swear an oath to defend our constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic. The most sinister threat to our freedom is domestic. Do you understand the following terms: conservative, liberal, democratic, republican? You might learn each and all by going to www. jbs.org. By doing so, you could possibly begin to certify what you believe the de nitions are by joining our local Tea Party and Holmes Tax Watch Association. The lesson so dif cult to learn is that freedom is NOT free. Edmund Burke declared, He who does not learn from historys mistakes is doomed to repeat them. History has proven burke was right. What our Constitution says is very important as our political survival rest therein. The prelude to the constitution were the conditions that impelled the pilgrims to leave Europe in wooden ships, dependent on sails to cross the storm infested Atlantic Ocean. These people lives under the rule of a King. He had total power; the people had none. These hearty souls came to a huge wilderness. Key among the reasons they came to our shores was religion. They want the right to worship God as they chose. The Constitution gives us that right. I hold that right was not to include Other gods. The God our Constitution declares is the God that gave us 10 good rules to live by, a.k.a. The Ten Commandments. The Constitution permits some things, but is primarily a restrictive document. I believe the same unseen had that directed the writing of the Gospels directed the hands, hearts and minds that wrote out Constitution. Our Constitution is the combined efforts of the 13 states that existed at that time. These men are known as the Founding Fathers. Since they were Christians they knew well the evil men do and the resulting harm they cause. The founders also knew European history. Thus, after months of debate, the Constitution was written grants we people.... a constructional republic not a democracy. Most of the ills in America today result from the Federal Government disregarding our Constitution. We are governed by a group of elitist, usurping power from our Congress and senate. There is no longer any real difference between Democrats and Republicans. They are only Socialist Party A and Socialist Party B. Moderates do not exist. They are imposters who lack the courage to declare which political camp they are in, conservative or liberal. On any issue, they sample the political wind and take any position that serves their political end. I urge that we become familiar with the issues and encourage friends and family to do likewise. This way we can cast an informed ballot. If we simply relied the media to guide us, the media maggots would push us to select a socialist. We should remember what the Greek philosopher Plato said, One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. Let us pray for our of cials asking God to grant them the wisdom and courage to honorably execute the duties of the of ce, then vote for constitutional candidates. We are either a contributing member of society or to detriment. Therefore, there is NO middle ground Ralph Boswell Bonifay LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Standing up for Stand Your Ground: Putting the law in its place SEN. DON GAETZ REP. MATT GAETZ The Mayhaw Festival was in Colquit, Ga., again last weekend and again I forgot to make plans to go. However, due to the early season on most every thing, weve been immersed in the bright red or golden yellow fruit that weve found no easy way to harvest or clean. I was hoping that if we went to the festival, wed learn some tricks to lighten the chore of harvesting and cleaning the abundant crop. A member of the hawthorn family, crataegus opaca, the mayhaw is said to be a relative of the rose. It is native to the southern states and is being promoted in Louisiana and Texas as, not only a source of fruit for jelly-making, but also as a reforestation plant for low swampy areas. It makes a bushy tree and grows to a height of about 30 feet. Its vicious thorns certainly will protect it from predators and I can see where it could become a pest itself, if its growth was not controlled. Even though it is a southern plant, most of our customers to the blueberry farm where I also sell the mayhaw jelly, had never heard of it, even the folks from Georgia. As a child my dad and my brothers used to go into the woods or swamps to nd a boggy place where the berries fell into water. There they skimmed them up with an old sheet or whatever they could devise. My husband and his brother Tom did the same. Today, having them growing in the yard, we spread wide sheets of plastic underneath the trees. Son Glen has tried every method to harvest them more painlessly. But the harvest still remains a challenge. My information says they are often harvested from boats. Even after they are in the bucket or at or whatever, there is still the time consuming chore of cleaning them. When they fall, they bring with them many leaves, thorns, and faulty berries not to mention insects which are drawn to their sweet fragrance. My favorite cleaning method is to pour a shallow layer into a at container, pick out the big trash, such as twigs, leaves, thorns and pecan blooms from nearby trees. Then I pick the good berries and put them into another clean container. After I wash them from several pans of clean water, I am ready to make juice. Here is the method I learned from my Mother-in-law, Pearl Meeker Tison. Place the clean berries in a large pot. Cover them with an equal amount of water and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 20-30 minutes. Strain into a clean container. With a potato masher, I press as many berries as possible. Add enough water to re-cover more than two inches above the mashed fruit. Bring to an additional boil and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring to make sure all fruit is thoroughly heated and to prevent sticking, as well. Again, strain through a colander and allow it to drip until all juice has drained. Mix the two batches of juice. (This is important!) For one gallon of fruit you should have one gallon of juice. If not, add water to the berries and boil again. Now you are ready to make the jelly. Use the recipe from any brand of fruit pectin. Your yield should be a case, about 12 pints at least for one gallon of fruit. Some sources list other products such as butter, pie lling, coffee cake, etc. made from mayhaw. In my opinion, the jelly and the syrup should just be eaten on hot biscuits, pancakes, waf es or toast, and leave the other confections to other fruits. Some have tried wine-making from the mayhaw, and that is probably a good use for them. The harvest season usually starts the rst day of May and lasts for a couple of weeks. This year, however, they were a two weeks early. When we are in the midst of harvesting and salvaging them I feel like the man who heard that we had them and called to see if we sold them. He picked his up lying at on the ground. As the group was leaving, he said, Im gonna see if I can get a law passed to prohibit any body from growing mayhaws. We missed the Mayhaw Festival again this year HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison

OUTDOORS Wednesday, May 2, 2012 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section A new Alabama king mackerel record was set by second-grader Andrew Quinn shing out of Orange Beach, Ala. Quinn was shing aboard the Fish Trap along with his family during Spring Break and caught the king using a pin sh freelined behind the boat on a bottom shing trip. The record king weighed 68 pounds, 3 ounces, several hours after it was caught. If it had been weighed on certi ed scales at the moment it was caught it would probably have weighed several pounds more. The existing Alabama record for king mackerel is 67-15 and was caught by Michael Krichler in 2002. Quinns sh was 1 ounces shy of the amount needed to take the record outright. Therefore his sh will share the Alabama record with Krichler, because any sh that currently holds a record and weighs more than 25 pounds must be beaten by at least percent. Quinns sh did not weigh enough to dislodge the current record, therefore it will share the record with Krichler. The above information was reported by David Ranier, outdoors writer from Alabama. The current world record for king mackerel is 93 pounds and was caught in San Juan, Puerto Rico, by Steve Graulau on April 18, 1999. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net CAPT. BILLY NEFF | Contributed photo An exhausted Andrew Quinn takes a moment to close his eyes on the dock at Zekes Marina in Orange Beach after his record king mackerel was of oaded from the Fish Trap.

Flatheads common in local rivers FWC | Florida Freedom Newspaper Wayne Porter and Lucretia Leath of Blountstown caught a big channel cat and three nice atheads while shing at night in the Apalachicola River. At left, this 34 pound athead held by Hubert Kirkland of Sneads won the Blountstown Rotary Club athead cat sh tournament. By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission A Jackson County man shing in the Apalachicola River near Chattahoochee in 1982 landed the strangest cat sh he had seen. It turned out he had a athead cat sh, a species of cat sh not native to the southeastern U.S. Now, three decades later, atheads are in every river in the Florida Panhandle from the Ochlockonee River west to the Escambia River. They are in the rivers by the thousands, a testament to their ability to thrive outside their native range. Sometimes called shoeheads or Appaloosa cats, because of their attened heads and mottled color, they are native to lakes and rivers of the Midwestern U.S. In fact, some anglers go after atheads in the shallower waters of their native range by using their hands to grab the sh during spawning, a type of shing called noodling. The spread of atheads to our local rivers has had an effect on other sh populations, according to Chris Paxton, regional sheries biologist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Smaller atheads will go after cray sh, but as these sh get up to several pounds they become live sh eaters, he said. They will literally eat anything smaller than they are that happens to swim by them. Species like bullheads and river redbreast bream are two species that have certainly been impacted. Paxton said some anglers are hoping the FWC will come up with a silver bullet to reduce or eliminate flatheads. He said study projects in other states in the Southeast indicate once flatheads are found in a waterway, they are there to stay. If there is a silver lining to the athead saga, Paxton said its that the sh is good to eat. He said most anglers catch them using small live bream and sh when atheads are actively feeding around daybreak, late in the day or at night. Some communities on the Apalachicola River even have gured how to cash in on the athead expansion by holding athead shing tournaments, offering cash money and trophies to the top participants. Just how big atheads will get in Florida waters is up for debate. In October 2011 Milton angler Eric Auston Jr. caught a 55.05 pound sh from the Yellow River and set a new Florida record in the process. In their native range they grow to more than 100 pounds. Fisheries biologists say they likely will reach similar weights here. STRANGE CATS

By Rev. James L Snyder Through the years, I have discovered two important facets of husbandship that has stood me in good stead for many years: a vigorous nod of the head and a rhapsodic Yes, dear. Flowers dont hurt either. When our recent visit in Ohio concluded, we headed for the airport. I do not mind traveling, but my least favorite mode is the airplane. The reason being, of course, is the airport itself. In my opinion, someone devised the modern airport to intimidate the average traveler. Arriving at the airport, we immediately headed for the ticket counter where we received our boarding passes. Then we surrendered our luggage to the personnel behind the counter, not knowing if we would ever see that same luggage again in our lifetime. Someday I hope to visit all the places my luggage has seen. Next, we made our way through the security booth. As you know, they do not permit metal through this gate. If a passenger passes through and a buzzer goes off, he is summoned back for guards to examine his personal effects to detect the offensive object. I went through about 17 times. Not until I got down to my underwear did the security personnel determine there must be a defect in the radar detection equipment. (I plan to le my briefs in a Florida court this week.) Finally, we left the security area and I started feeling a little more con dent until we came to a big sign over the entryway. My wife and I found little comfort in the words written: Terminal Entrance. Contrary to their friendly little sign, I did, in fact have plans of returning. Our ight plan called for a two-hour stopover before arriving at our nal destination. Nothing quite compares to spending a free hour or two at an airport. Did I say free? Allow me to recount that opinion. There is absolutely nothing free at an airport. I cannot prove it, but I am sure they have gured out a way to charge for the air we breathe. For instance, a 15 cent cup of coffee can cost in the neighborhood of $17.95. I dont even like visiting that neighborhood. If I lived there, I would move. However, being the good natured, charming individual that I am, it does not take much to make me happy. All I need to allay any stress is a simple cup of coffee. Have you ever noticed how things seem to go a lot easier with a steaming jolt of java? With a full hour to spare at the airport, my wife and I looked for something to occupy our time. Then I espied the perfect diversion. With a mischievous twinkle in my left eye, I looked at my wife and said, Lets get a cup of coffee and relax a while. One thing I can always count on my wife, she knows a good thing when she hears it. Unfortunately, she does not hear it too often from my lips. Walking over to the coffee shop and, being the man, I approached the counter to place our order. I would like two regular coffees, I said with anticipation to the young woman behind the counter. The thing that makes a man a man is that he always knows what he wants. It is that con dence that separates the men from the boys. The young woman looked at me, snapped her chewing gum several times and said in a monotone, Marvelous, you want espresso or cappuccino? No, Miss, I replied as cool and sophisticated as any gentleman you will ever meet. No, Miss. We just want two plain coffees. She looked at me as only a waitress behind a counter can and rattled off names I have never heard before. As best I could understand, they were avors or kinds of espresso coffee. Finally, when she took a breath I jumped in and said with all the con dence I could muster without compromising my good nature, No, Miss. I dont want any espresso, just a regular cup of coffee. Exactly, she said with a falsetto smile. Most people enjoy our cappuccinos. What kind of cappuccino would you like. Then she rattled off an endless list of cappuccino avors, most I had never heard of before. About this time, the caffeine de ciency began seeping into my attitude. I think that somewhere in our constitution is the right to order regular coffee at a price that does not compromise the mortgage on my home. Young lady, I said as calmly as possible under the circumstances, listen to me very carefully. I want coffee. Not espresso. Not cappuccino. Just two cups of plain, regular, good old American coffee. Oh, she said in a burst of enlightenment. You want coffee. Why didnt you say so in the rst place? There is no satisfaction more ful lling than nally getting through and arriving at a common understanding. Now, she said in a con dential tone, what avor coffee do you want? Columbian, French Vanilla, Cinnamon, Chocolate Mint, Swiss Mocha . . There is only one place I know where I can get exactly what I need. Jesus put it this way; And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glori ed in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it (John 14:13-14 KJV). If you need anything from the Lord, just ask. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

This Message Courtesy of Wanting More Than Your Fair Share The Greek word pleonexia means greed or cov etousness. And, the acts of greed and covetousness are found frequently in the New Testament. Plato and Aristotle used the word to mean wanting more than your fair share, and Aristotle suggested that all injustice is a form of pleonexia. In Platos Republic, one of the dialogues participants, Thrasymachus, says that pleonexia is the natural state of man, and Thrasymachus view that might makes right. Re cently, some have suggested that the economic and social woes seen around the world can be traced to people, and nations, wanting more than their fair share. Both individuals and groups can be guilty of wanting too much. Wanting to live in a house that is bigger than you can afford is wanting too much, but so is thinking that everyone in your country should be able to retire at the age of 50 or 55 with down to what is the fair share that everybody should pay. Knowing exactly what your fair share is can be readily gave and expected little in return. Take heed, and beware of all covetousness;for a mans life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.

Pay Tribute to Those We RememberMemorial Day 2012Honor the special people whove touched your life family, friends, Veterans and have passed on. This special Memorial Day tribute publishes on May 23 in the News and the Times and our websites. Contact us at 850-638-0212 or 547-9414 for more details. By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY With the help of County Attorney Jeff Goodman, the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners composed and approved of Resolution 2012-02 during their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, April 24, stating that they are fully against the state-sponsored septic tank bill. This our latest successful attempt to keep our citizens away from the long ngers of the money-hungry legislature, Goodman said. This is another attempt to make our voice known to the Legislature against this bill. As a citizen of Holmes County Im backing it whole-heartedly. The resolution supports the proposed House Bill 1263, which repeals certain parts of the statewide onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems evaluation program, known as Senate Bill 550. Goodman said that he also completed the ordinance requested by County Commissioner Kenneth Williams during the last commission meeting and approved for Goodman to draw up the ordinance. Commissioner Kenneth Williams said he was concerned about purchasing pipes for residents and collecting sales tax. When a pipe needs replacing, the county has been receiving money from the resident to purchase a pipe at county rates and, in turn, the county retains the sales tax. I dont think we should be in the pipe buying business and collecting sales tax, Williams said. We should make them purchase the pipes and well even give them the name and number of the place we buy ours if they want it. The board approved of Williams suggestion to change their requirements so residents will purchase the pipes on their own.County to ght septic tank bill 50www.bonifaynow.comWednesday, MAY 2 2012 Volume 122, Number 3For the latest breaking news, visitBONIFAYNOW.COM Phone: 850-547-9414 Web site: bonifaynow.com Fax: 850-547-9418 INDEXArrests .................................A8 Opinion ................................A4 Outdoors ..............................A6 Extra ....................................B1 Faith.....................................B4 IN BRIEF Life Management Center hold fundraiserBONIFAY The Life Management Center will hold a Gently Used Items Sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday and Friday, May 2-3, at 801 S.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, May 2, 2012 One the same token I think if a person buys a pipe and were maintaining it, then they should buy the pipe and the county put it in with no charge, Williams said. The board approved to modify the ordinance so that if someone has a pipe put in and if the pipe corrodes or rusts, then the person will pay for the pipe, but the county will wave the permit and installation fees. Goodman said that because it is an ordinance, it would need a public hearing in their first meeting in May. The board approved of Goodman getting a permanent easement to a residence on Weak Street to address any flooding issues that property may have in the future. Williams informed the commissioners and attorney that the states new policy during a tax audit was to take the amount of money they thought each county owed and leave it to the county to prove what they owe before they can retrieve the money. We got a bill for $32,000 and when we went in a broke it down to what we actually owe it was only $7,000, Williams said. We need to fight this. Goodman agreed. Its the exact opposite of what they use to do, Goodman said. They would tell us what we owed and then would leave it to us to contest it. Now they just take the money and leave it to the counties to prove what they owe before they can get the money back. In other buisness, the board approved of the proclamation to make May Mental Health Month promoted by Life Management. The board also approved of adding Thomas Drive as No. 1 and Todd Rulliford Road as No. 2 to the roads in desperate need of repair in the upcoming Small County Outreach Program, which includes bridge repair. Commissioner Jim King pressed to have a few roads added to the list of SCOP roads in need of paving, which were Old Mt. Zion Road, Hardy Skipper Road and Line Road. County Engineer Cliff Knauer agreed to add those roads to the SCOP list. County Commissioner Monty Merchant informed the commissioners that there was a guardrail out on County Road 179A. After being informed that the driver that hit the guardrail didnt have insurance, King said that the driver should be held accountable to pay for the repairs. We could get the judge to say that he owes us, but the problem arises when it comes to collecting it, Goodman said. Goodman confirmed that because it was considered a safety issue that the guardrail was out that they would consider it an emergency to have it repaired, which ruled out them having to bid it out. Merchant then requested that the county look into getting an annual contract for guardrail repairs so that the guardrails could be repaired immediately after an accident and Goodman agreed to look into it. Merchant then asked about animal control, saying there was an elderly woman who kept calling, saying she couldnt get to her mailbox because of a pack of wild dogs kept intimidating her. Williams said he thought the Sheriffs Office should filter the calls for such matters. Weve got an excellent ordinance in place, we just need an agency to carry it out, Goodman said. Ill look into what we can do. The Board approved of purchasing two van hitches to hook up the equipment trailers to the state vans so that the inmates could continue to work throughout the county. They approved with a vote of 4 to 1, with Merchant voting no. Those are state vehicles, Merchant said. What if they decided to stop providing us with inmates? Are we going to give our hitches back? Knauer gave an update that they would be starting the patchwork for County Road 181 on April 25 and should finish with the patchwork on April 27. Knauer explained that he was still in the process of trying to get the 319 Grant for Old Mt. Zion Road to repair the erosion issues. The 319 Grant is provided by the Florida Spring Initiative with the Department of Environmental Protection through the Clean Water Act to improve water quality and requires a 40 percent match, said Knauer. Its not as good as it was before but its better then nothing, and the submission deadline is May 25. Knauer said that hes trying to see if they can provide an in-kind match of materials or services for the 40 percent. Were really stressing the fact that were a Rural Area of Economic Concern, Knauer said. The board approved of continuing with their current auditor services, Carl Riggs and Ingram, renewing their annual contract. One of their recommendations was with the road department keeping up with their equipment inventory, said Chairman Ron Monk. Our financial situation is good and he gives some great advice. They are very good at what they do. The board approved of allowing the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance to attach equipment to three of the countys towers to enhance the broadband in Holmes County. Is this even going to happen? Williams asked. Executive Director for Holmes County Chamber of Commerce assured Williams that it was underway, explaining that this was just making way so that Internet providers for broadband services will be able to come in and provide their services to the residents of Holmes County. Entering into this contract would be a bene t to the citizens of Holmes County, Goodman said. The Board addressed the issue of the location of the 911 Department. Weve faced the conundrum of either moving out to the Emergency Operations Center, which will cost $13,000 in moving expenses alone, plus the additional expenses per year for the additional T1 line, said 911 Director Clint Erickson. Or, with the approval of the city of Bonifay, we can expand where were at by moving me across the street and using my of ce as additional space, which will cost $3,300. Erickson explained that they were blessed with a grant for not only new equipment, but additional equipment. The problem was the need of additional room to house and use the equipment. We built a building speci cally for this and now were not even going to use it? Williams asked. Goodman suggested that Erickson show them a diagram of what space theyre working with as well as a list of exact costs for each option. Merchant suggested no matter what they do they should keep all the 911 Departments together and that they should reserve their decision for the next commission meeting when they could have the sheriff attend as well. The board approved of Goodman and Merchants recommendation, and Erickson agreed to put the presentation together for the next meeting. The board approved of allowing new road crew employees to take rain days as soon as they are hired, with a vote of 4 to 1, with Merchant voting no. Originally the policy was that if a new employee was within his probationary period then he could not take rain days, which are days that when its raining and they are unable to do work they will be sent home but are paid for those days. I dont think its right to take a day of pay away from a man when hes working 40 hours a week and hes made to go home and not get paid, King said. The board approved of allowing the director of the Holmes County Public Library to apply for three grants for the library youth summer programs. We usually can get the matches for those grant through the community or The Friends of the Library, said Director of Holmes County Library Suzie Harris. Its been such a success. Weve gone from snow in July to NASA visiting. Most of our children cant go out and see these wonders so we bring it to them the best we can. Harris con rmed that there was an attendance of 443 children at last years snow day. The board approved of Commissioner Phillip Musics request to haul paid gravel to a resident and to haul paid dirt for Red Hill United Methodist Church to complete their project. Williams informed the board that they were going to have a demo of a new road grater, that a leak at the shop was in need of repair for over a year and is damaging supplies and that they had applied for a grant towards a generator for the courthouse. Its a big enough generator to provide for the entire courthouse no problem, Williams said. The match is between $2,000 and $4,000 for a $29,000 generator with the possibility for an in-kind match for labor. We needed to apply for the grant that day, so it seemed like a no-brainer. The board agreed with Williams. The next Holmes County Board of County Commissioners meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. on May 8 at the BOCC next to the courthouse.

For those of you who dont know X Factor, it is a television music competition created by Simon Cowell, who is currently a judge on American Idol. Thousands compete for the prize of a recording contract as well as extensive media coverage and publicity, giving thousands the opportunity to get their foot in the music industrys door. Moore said she was more excited then nervous and was spending most of her time trying to choose what songs she would be singing in front of the X Factor judges. This time Ill be singing in front of the actual judges of X Factor, Moore said. Im excited about being able to y out there and have the experience. Even if I dont make it, I can be proud that I made it that far. She said she draws a lot of inspiration from her favorite country music singers, such as Martina McBride and Loretta Lynn, but the biggest contributor to her success was the love and support of her family her mother, Sherry, her father, Mike, and her sister, Mikayla.

By REP. MATT GAETZ AND SEN. DON GAETZA person is justi ed in the use of deadly force and does not have a duty to retreat if he or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony. Chapter 776.012, Florida Statutes. The shooting death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Thankfully, our Constitution leaves it to a jury of 12 citizens, not a gaggle of cable news demagogues, to decide whether a crime was committed and, if so, who committed it. After all, our system of justice exists to resolve the tough cases not just the easy ones. While motions are led and trial dates are negotiated in the prosecution of George Zimmerman, the medias obsession has shifted to Floridas Stand Your Ground law. Riding the extreme rhetoric of Al Sharpton and encouraged by the concerns of Attorney General Eric Holder, anti-gun groups have already declared that law guilty of murder and sentenced it for repeal by the state legislature. As two legislators who will vote on the issue, we want Northwest Floridians to know where we stand as we approach what is sure to be a well-orchestrated, wellnanced attack on the Second Amendment. Assuredly, there are very few laws on the books so pure they cant be improved. In fact, much of our effort in Tallahassee has been to repeal bad, unnecessary, burdensome laws. But it wasnt the fault of Chapter 776.012, Florida Statutes, that Trayvon Martin is dead. If Zimmerman claims a Stand Your Ground defense, that still doesnt make the law wrong. Claims are made in court every day. The court, not the media talking heads, decides if those claims are valid. Without question, the Legislature should stand its ground and defend good law in the face of self-serving, over-hyped rhetoric from the far left. In 2005 when Stand Your Ground was enacted, Florida was one of only a few states that required a victim to run rather than stand his or her ground when attacked by a criminal while using deadly force. Before Stand Your Ground, Florida law favored the attacker. Consider an elderly woman in a dimly lit parking lot or a college girl walking to her dorm at night. If either was attacked, her duty was to turn her back and try to ee, probably be overcome and raped or killed. Prior to Stand Your Ground, that victim didnt have the choice to defend herself, to meet force with force. Calls to repeal Stand Your Ground are antiwoman. Imposing a dutytoee places the safety of the rapist above a womans own life. In fact, until Stand Your Ground was passed, criminals were suing victims because victims, in protecting themselves, were allegedly using excessive force against the criminals. Stand Your Ground simply says, if you have a right to be somewhere and if youre not breaking the law, you may defend yourself to prevent imminent death or bodily harm. You dont have an obligation to do so. You have the right. Those who use every tragedy as an excuse to water down our right to keep and bear arms are already exploiting Trayvon Martins death for their own purposes. In the legislative debate that is sure to come, we will remind them that Stand Your Ground is not a right-wing overreaction. It was passed by a bi-partisan majority of the Florida Legislature. We will remind them that Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith, while a state senator, was one of the sponsors. Most important, we will remind the critics and the cynics why this law is necessary, who it protects, and, if it were repealed, whose side the Legislature would be taking in that dimly-lit parking lot or that darkened college dormitory. Sen. Don Gaetz and Rep. Matt Gaetz represent Northwest Florida in the state legislature. The senator lives in Niceville. His son, an attorney, resides in Fort Walton Beach.

The Five Ws and One H, should apply to all kinds of advertisements. Such as posters, banners, yers and etc. Many times I cannot nd all of the information that would interest me to want to attend the events.Jim AckermanChipleyBe prepared for election seasonDear Editor, Only a few times in American history have we the people faced a more critical hour. This year, 2012, we will choose a President. Perhaps even more critical to our survival will be the conduct of our Congress. Congress controls the money our federal government spends. Congress can stop treasonous bills by refusing to fund them. Remember, as do our military, the president, Congress and senate all swear an oath to defend our constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic. The most sinister threat to our freedom is domestic. Do you understand the following terms: conservative, liberal, democratic, republican? You might learn each and all by going to www. jbs.org. By doing so, you could possibly begin to certify what you believe the de nitions are by joining our local Tea Party and Holmes Tax Watch Association. The lesson so dif cult to learn is that freedom is NOT free. Edmund Burke declared, He who does not learn from historys mistakes is doomed to repeat them. History has proven burke was right. What our Constitution says is very important as our political survival rest therein. The prelude to the constitution were the conditions that impelled the pilgrims to leave Europe in wooden ships, dependent on sails to cross the storm infested Atlantic Ocean. These people lives under the rule of a King. He had total power; the people had none. These hearty souls came to a huge wilderness. Key among the reasons they came to our shores was religion. They want the right to worship God as they chose. The Constitution gives us that right. I hold that right was not to include Other gods. The God our Constitution declares is the God that gave us 10 good rules to live by, a.k.a. The Ten Commandments. The Constitution permits some things, but is primarily a restrictive document. I believe the same unseen had that directed the writing of the Gospels directed the hands, hearts and minds that wrote out Constitution. Our Constitution is the combined efforts of the 13 states that existed at that time. These men are known as the Founding Fathers. Since they were Christians they knew well the evil men do and the resulting harm they cause. The founders also knew European history. Thus, after months of debate, the Constitution was written grants we people.... a constructional republic not a democracy. Most of the ills in America today result from the Federal Government disregarding our Constitution. We are governed by a group of elitist, usurping power from our Congress and senate. There is no longer any real difference between Democrats and Republicans. They are only Socialist Party A and Socialist Party B. Moderates do not exist. They are imposters who lack the courage to declare which political camp they are in, conservative or liberal. On any issue, they sample the political wind and take any position that serves their political end. I urge that we become familiar with the issues and encourage friends and family to do likewise. This way we can cast an informed ballot. If we simply relied the media to guide us, the media maggots would push us to select a socialist. We should remember what the Greek philosopher Plato said, One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. Let us pray for our of cials asking God to grant them the wisdom and courage to honorably execute the duties of the of ce, then vote for constitutional candidates. We are either a contributing member of society or to detriment. Therefore, there is NO middle groundRalph BoswellBonifay LETTERS TO THE EDITORStanding up for Stand Your Ground: Putting the law in its place SEN. DON GAETZ REP. MATT GAETZ The Mayhaw Festival was in Colquit, Ga., again last weekend and again I forgot to make plans to go. However, due to the early season on most every thing, weve been immersed in the bright red or golden yellow fruit that weve found no easy way to harvest or clean. I was hoping that if we went to the festival, wed learn some tricks to lighten the chore of harvesting and cleaning the abundant crop. A member of the hawthorn family, crataegus opaca, the mayhaw is said to be a relative of the rose. It is native to the southern states and is being promoted in Louisiana and Texas as, not only a source of fruit for jelly-making, but also as a reforestation plant for low swampy areas. It makes a bushy tree and grows to a height of about 30 feet. Its vicious thorns certainly will protect it from predators and I can see where it could become a pest itself, if its growth was not controlled. Even though it is a southern plant, most of our customers to the blueberry farm where I also sell the mayhaw jelly, had never heard of it, even the folks from Georgia. As a child my dad and my brothers used to go into the woods or swamps to nd a boggy place where the berries fell into water. There they skimmed them up with an old sheet or whatever they could devise. My husband and his brother Tom did the same. Today, having them growing in the yard, we spread wide sheets of plastic underneath the trees. Son Glen has tried every method to harvest them more painlessly. But the harvest still remains a challenge. My information says they are often harvested from boats. Even after they are in the bucket or at or whatever, there is still the time consuming chore of cleaning them. When they fall, they bring with them many leaves, thorns, and faulty berries not to mention insects which are drawn to their sweet fragrance. My favorite cleaning method is to pour a shallow layer into a at container, pick out the big trash, such as twigs, leaves, thorns and pecan blooms from nearby trees. Then I pick the good berries and put them into another clean container. After I wash them from several pans of clean water, I am ready to make juice. Here is the method I learned from my Mother-in-law, Pearl Meeker Tison. Place the clean berries in a large pot. Cover them with an equal amount of water and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 20-30 minutes. Strain into a clean container. With a potato masher, I press as many berries as possible. Add enough water to re-cover more than two inches above the mashed fruit. Bring to an additional boil and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring to make sure all fruit is thoroughly heated and to prevent sticking, as well. Again, strain through a colander and allow it to drip until all juice has drained. Mix the two batches of juice. (This is important!) For one gallon of fruit you should have one gallon of juice. If not, add water to the berries and boil again. Now you are ready to make the jelly. Use the recipe from any brand of fruit pectin. Your yield should be a case, about 12 pints at least for one gallon of fruit. Some sources list other products such as butter, pie lling, coffee cake, etc. made from mayhaw. In my opinion, the jelly and the syrup should just be eaten on hot biscuits, pancakes, waf es or toast, and leave the other confections to other fruits. Some have tried wine-making from the mayhaw, and that is probably a good use for them. The harvest season usually starts the rst day of May and lasts for a couple of weeks. This year, however, they were a two weeks early. When we are in the midst of harvesting and salvaging them I feel like the man who heard that we had them and called to see if we sold them. He picked his up lying at on the ground. As the group was leaving, he said, Im gonna see if I can get a law passed to prohibit any body from growing mayhaws.We missed the Mayhaw Festival again this yearHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison

OUTDOORS Wednesday, May 2, 2012 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection A new Alabama king mackerel record was set by second-grader Andrew Quinn shing out of Orange Beach, Ala. Quinn was shing aboard the Fish Trap along with his family during Spring Break and caught the king using a pin sh freelined behind the boat on a bottom shing trip. The record king weighed 68 pounds, 3 ounces, several hours after it was caught. If it had been weighed on certi ed scales at the moment it was caught it would probably have weighed several pounds more. The existing Alabama record for king mackerel is 67-15 and was caught by Michael Krichler in 2002. Quinns sh was 1 ounces shy of the amount needed to take the record outright. Therefore his sh will share the Alabama record with Krichler, because any sh that currently holds a record and weighs more than 25 pounds must be beaten by at least percent. Quinns sh did not weigh enough to dislodge the current record, therefore it will share the record with Krichler. The above information was reported by David Ranier, outdoors writer from Alabama. The current world record for king mackerel is 93 pounds and was caught in San Juan, Puerto Rico, by Steve Graulau on April 18, 1999.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netCAPT. BILLY NEFF | Contributed photoAn exhausted Andrew Quinn takes a moment to close his eyes on the dock at Zekes Marina in Orange Beach after his record king mackerel was of oaded from the Fish Trap.

Flatheads common in local rivers FWC | Florida Freedom NewspaperWayne Porter and Lucretia Leath of Blountstown caught a big channel cat and three nice atheads while shing at night in the Apalachicola River. At left, this 34 pound athead held by Hubert Kirkland of Sneads won the Blountstown Rotary Club athead cat sh tournament. By STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission A Jackson County man shing in the Apalachicola River near Chattahoochee in 1982 landed the strangest cat sh he had seen. It turned out he had a athead cat sh, a species of cat sh not native to the southeastern U.S. Now, three decades later, atheads are in every river in the Florida Panhandle from the Ochlockonee River west to the Escambia River. They are in the rivers by the thousands, a testament to their ability to thrive outside their native range. Sometimes called shoeheads or Appaloosa cats, because of their attened heads and mottled color, they are native to lakes and rivers of the Midwestern U.S. In fact, some anglers go after atheads in the shallower waters of their native range by using their hands to grab the sh during spawning, a type of shing called noodling. The spread of atheads to our local rivers has had an effect on other sh populations, according to Chris Paxton, regional sheries biologist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Smaller atheads will go after cray sh, but as these sh get up to several pounds they become live sh eaters, he said. They will literally eat anything smaller than they are that happens to swim by them. Species like bullheads and river redbreast bream are two species that have certainly been impacted. Paxton said some anglers are hoping the FWC will come up with a silver bullet to reduce or eliminate flatheads. He said study projects in other states in the Southeast indicate once flatheads are found in a waterway, they are there to stay. If there is a silver lining to the athead saga, Paxton said its that the sh is good to eat. He said most anglers catch them using small live bream and sh when atheads are actively feeding around daybreak, late in the day or at night. Some communities on the Apalachicola River even have gured how to cash in on the athead expansion by holding athead shing tournaments, offering cash money and trophies to the top participants. Just how big atheads will get in Florida waters is up for debate. In October 2011 Milton angler Eric Auston Jr. caught a 55.05 pound sh from the Yellow River and set a new Florida record in the process. In their native range they grow to more than 100 pounds. Fisheries biologists say they likely will reach similar weights here. STRANGE CATS

CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com To start the weekend, off Kurt Busch won the Nationwide Series Virginia 529 College Savings 250. His win also brought the rst win for Kyle Busch Motorsports. Kurt raced side by side with Richmond favorite Denny Hamlin the entire last lap of the race. But Kurt did what he does best and pulled out a win. Here his how the Nationwide race went down. The rst caution came on lap 24 when a driver reported debris on turn 3. Lap 68 brought about caution No. 2 when J.J. Yeley blew a tire and hit the wall between turns three and four. Kurt Busch took the lead for the rst time in lap 77 and held the lead until lap 80 when Kevin Harvick took it back. Jason Bowles spun out in lap 115 bringing out caution No. 3. Drivers were reporting debris in turn two on lap 139, but ofcials said the track was clear. On lap 166, Kurt took the lead back from Harvick and kept it the rest of the race. In Saturday nights Sprint Cup Capital City 400 Kurts little brother, Kyle, won. With a little bit of turmoil in the air as the nal laps were run, he stole the win from Dale Earnhardt Jr. This was Kyles fourth spring win at Richmond. He didnt have the best car but it worked for him when it mattered. Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards left the track unhappy, Edwards because NASCAR black-agged him saying he jumped the restart. The Capital City 400 was plagued by car problems. Within the rst 47 laps, ve drivers, Scott Speed, Mike Bliss, Joe Nemechek and David Gilliland, had to take their cars out of the race. On lap 32 Mark Martin, the top runner up until now, reported to his crew chief that his car was loose. NASCAR held a scheduled caution on lap 50, which put David Blaney on the lead lap. On lap 57 Jeff Gordon got sideways and bumped Greg Bife and Kurt Bush and messed up the right side of his car. Michael McDowell takes his car to the garage on lap 70. Lap 116 brought caution No. 2 when Kurt Busch spun out in the front stretch. Joey Lagano was back on the lead lap after this caution. Caution No. 3 was called for debris, putting Bife on the lead lap, and caution four came when Jeff Burton hit the wall causing debris on the track. Caution ve on lap 386 was due to debris, and Edwards was back on the lead lap allowing him to pull off a 10th place nish.

The doors will open at 6 p.m. The musical Footloose opened at Broadways Richard Rodgers Theatre on Oct. 22, 1998, and ran for 709 performances until July 2, 2000. It was nominated for four Tony Awards. One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isnt prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the towns youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverends rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Rens reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

By Rev. James L SnyderThrough the years, I have discovered two important facets of husbandship that has stood me in good stead for many years: a vigorous nod of the head and a rhapsodic Yes, dear. Flowers dont hurt either. When our recent visit in Ohio concluded, we headed for the airport. I do not mind traveling, but my least favorite mode is the airplane. The reason being, of course, is the airport itself. In my opinion, someone devised the modern airport to intimidate the average traveler. Arriving at the airport, we immediately headed for the ticket counter where we received our boarding passes. Then we surrendered our luggage to the personnel behind the counter, not knowing if we would ever see that same luggage again in our lifetime. Someday I hope to visit all the places my luggage has seen. Next, we made our way through the security booth. As you know, they do not permit metal through this gate. If a passenger passes through and a buzzer goes off, he is summoned back for guards to examine his personal effects to detect the offensive object. I went through about 17 times. Not until I got down to my underwear did the security personnel determine there must be a defect in the radar detection equipment. (I plan to le my briefs in a Florida court this week.) Finally, we left the security area and I started feeling a little more con dent until we came to a big sign over the entryway. My wife and I found little comfort in the words written: Terminal Entrance. Contrary to their friendly little sign, I did, in fact have plans of returning. Our ight plan called for a two-hour stopover before arriving at our nal destination. Nothing quite compares to spending a free hour or two at an airport. Did I say free? Allow me to recount that opinion. There is absolutely nothing free at an airport. I cannot prove it, but I am sure they have gured out a way to charge for the air we breathe. For instance, a 15 cent cup of coffee can cost in the neighborhood of $17.95. I dont even like visiting that neighborhood. If I lived there, I would move. However, being the good natured, charming individual that I am, it does not take much to make me happy. All I need to allay any stress is a simple cup of coffee. Have you ever noticed how things seem to go a lot easier with a steaming jolt of java? With a full hour to spare at the airport, my wife and I looked for something to occupy our time. Then I espied the perfect diversion. With a mischievous twinkle in my left eye, I looked at my wife and said, Lets get a cup of coffee and relax a while. One thing I can always count on my wife, she knows a good thing when she hears it. Unfortunately, she does not hear it too often from my lips. Walking over to the coffee shop and, being the man, I approached the counter to place our order. I would like two regular coffees, I said with anticipation to the young woman behind the counter. The thing that makes a man a man is that he always knows what he wants. It is that con dence that separates the men from the boys. The young woman looked at me, snapped her chewing gum several times and said in a monotone, Marvelous, you want espresso or cappuccino? No, Miss, I replied as cool and sophisticated as any gentleman you will ever meet. No, Miss. We just want two plain coffees. She looked at me as only a waitress behind a counter can and rattled off names I have never heard before. As best I could understand, they were avors or kinds of espresso coffee. Finally, when she took a breath I jumped in and said with all the con dence I could muster without compromising my good nature, No, Miss. I dont want any espresso, just a regular cup of coffee. Exactly, she said with a falsetto smile. Most people enjoy our cappuccinos. What kind of cappuccino would you like. Then she rattled off an endless list of cappuccino avors, most I had never heard of before. About this time, the caffeine de ciency began seeping into my attitude. I think that somewhere in our constitution is the right to order regular coffee at a price that does not compromise the mortgage on my home. Young lady, I said as calmly as possible under the circumstances, listen to me very carefully. I want coffee. Not espresso. Not cappuccino. Just two cups of plain, regular, good old American coffee. Oh, she said in a burst of enlightenment. You want coffee. Why didnt you say so in the rst place? There is no satisfaction more ful lling than nally getting through and arriving at a common understanding. Now, she said in a con dential tone, what avor coffee do you want? Columbian, French Vanilla, Cinnamon, Chocolate Mint, Swiss Mocha . . There is only one place I know where I can get exactly what I need. Jesus put it this way; And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glori ed in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it (John 14:13-14 KJV). If you need anything from the Lord, just ask. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

And, the acts of greed and covetousness are found frequently in the New Testament. Plato and Aristotle used the word to mean wanting more than your fair share, and Aristotle suggested that all injustice is a form of pleonexia. In Platos Republic, one of the dialogues participants, Thrasymachus, says that pleonexia is the natural state of man, and Thrasymachus view that might makes right. Recently, some have suggested that the economic and social woes seen around the world can be traced to people, and nations, wanting more than their fair share. Both individuals and groups can be guilty of wanting too much. Wanting to live in a house that is bigger than you can afford is wanting too much, but so is thinking that everyone in your country should be able to retire at the age of 50 or 55 with down to what is the fair share that everybody should pay. Knowing exactly what your fair share is can be readily gave and expected little in return.Take heed, and beware of all covetousness;for a mans life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.
