I have been told that something like 80 percent of emergency room visits arent emergencies, said the Rev. Shelly Chandler, pastor of the First Baptist Church. Clinics like this save millions of dollars in visits to the ER. The clinic is run with volunteer help and is open two Saturdays a month, Chandler said, and is organized through the state of Florida. We wouldnt be able to do this without the immunity the state provides. The state takes away the liability as long as the clinic is staffed by volunteers. The clinic was the idea of Diane Little and Dr. Lisa Bailey, who had helped out in a similar clinic and returned to Bonifay with a plan, he said. There are 79 similar clinics spread across the state. It doesnt have to be a church, any organization can open one, he said. The church provided the house for the clinic, and the services are provided free to clients who meet the requirements, based on double Memorial Day honors veterans past and present By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance, said Maj. Gen. John A. Logan. Let pleasant paths invite the coming and going of reverent visitors and fond mourners. Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic. It was three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, that the leader of the Grand Army of the Republic, the organization over veterans affairs of that time, created Decoration Day as a time to remember fallen soldiers and decorate their graves with owers. Logan created an order for this day to be established on May 30, when all the owers were in bloom Brown seeks superintendent position From Staff Reports BONIFAY Buddy Brown of Westville is seeking the of ce of superintendent of schools for Holmes County. Brown said he intends to utilize his diverse leadership experience in guiding the Holmes School District, he said in a news release. He believes in scal responsibility but that the focus and priority of education must be centered on the students and children of the community. With the many challenges presently confronting Florida schools and even more so the small and rural districts of Florida, Brown said he feels that now is a prime time to address the lack of consideration of the needs of the rural and small districts within the state legislature. The importance of developing and building a school district infrastructure that can adapt to the changing needs of the community and the whims of the state and federal legislation is ever more apparent today, Brown said. Brown is a third-generation educator. His grandfather was a certi ed teacher dating back to the early 1900s, and a number of his aunts began their teaching careers in Holmes County Special to the News BONIFAY Mayor Lawrence Cloud recognized the Bonifay Fire Department for their outstanding work on May 14. In appreciation of the citys support, Bonifay Fire and Rescue bought and presented Cloud and the city council members a new gavel, which replaces the City of Bonifay traditional rubber mallet used as a gavel for council meetings. Council member Richard Woodham suggested the city move a wall out 4 feet to make room for new equipment for 911 dispatch and ask the county to pay for the materials. The council approved of writing a letter to the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners requesting them to pay for the materials and have the inmates do the labor. The council approved of requesting $60,000 for the street department and $60,000 for the re department from the BOCC for this upcoming budget year. In other business, the council approved of Change Order I for the Wastewater Treatment Facility Upgrade. approved of Hatch Mott MacDonald responding to the Department of Environmental Protection regarding the DEPs warning letter about high nitrogen and unionized ammonia. approved of putting a voluntary contribution on the water bills to help the local Dixie Youth baseball team with expenses. Eula Clark, local resident, came before the council and requested that the ditch on East Moore Lane be taken care of so it will not grow up again. She also requested that the police do an extra patrol in that area. Council members approved of adopting Proclamation 1201, proclaiming May as Pledge of Civility Month, and the panel approved of donating $200 to Holmes County High Schools Project Graduation. The councils regularly scheduled meeting on May 28 was canceled in observance of Memorial Day. The council will meet again at 6 p.m. June 11 at Bonifay City Hall.

Love, Sabrina, Darrell, Dillon & Tristan the federal poverty level. For a family of four, the income level is over $4,000 a month, Chandler said, so a wide range of people are open to visit the clinic. The state health department provides services on a sliding scale fee, and there is a paper trail some members of society wish to avoid, Chandler said, which makes the churchs clinic appealing to people such as undocumented workers who need medical care. The clinic also does not carry narcotics, nor are narcotics prescribed at the clinic, Chandler said. You cant come in and say your back hurts and get a bottle of OxyContin. Best of all, the clinic also gives the church volunteers a chance to minister to visitors. The program works really well for a government program, and it also gives us a chance to minister while helping people in their everyday lives, Chandler said. before moving to other parts of the state. Brown lives on property homesteaded by his great-grandparents in the Westville community. He is the son of the late Elton Brown and was raised with the help of his Aunt and Uncle Wilbur Lee and Mary Maxwell and the rest of the Westville community. He is married to Stephanie Pilcher, formerly of Bonifay, and they have a daughter, Haley Harris, a freshman in college. He and his wife are members of Westville Baptist Church. He attended elementary school in Ponce de Leon and is a graduate of Holmes County High School. He holds an associates degree from Chipola College, a bachelors from the University of West Florida and a masters in educational leadership from UWF. He holds a teaching certi cate in social science grades 6-12 and is certi ed in principalship by the Florida Department of Education. He is retired from the Florida Army National Guard with 20 years of honorable service in the 3rd Battalion, 124th Infantry Regiment and 53rd Infantry Brigade. He rose through the ranks from private to captain, where he held numerous leadership and staff positions to include seven years of command time at both the local National Guard unit and Headquarters Company in Panama City. He is a recipient of the Florida Distinguished Service Award and the Florida Commendation Medal for Meritorious Service while on state active duty, along with other federal and state awards and medals. Brown worked as a substitute teacher in the Holmes School District and assistant coach in football and girls basketball at Holmes County High School until he was hired as a full-time teacher at Bonifay Middle School, where he also became the football and basketball coach for the boys program. After a stint as teacher and coach, he moved into administration, becoming the assistant principal at Ponce de Leon High School. He has 13 years of administrative experience at both the county and district levels. He spent 16 months working in the district of ce as a districtlevel administrator, becoming familiar with the workings of the district of ce in the areas of policy, personnel, school law and the interactions of the district with the Department of Education and other school districts throughout the state of Florida. He is now principal of Ponce de Leon High School. If elected, Brown said he pledges to maintain an administration with an open-door policy geared toward listening to the needs of the students, parents and employees of the Holmes School District. His goal would be to work toward making the Holmes School District the leader in student achievement within the Panhandle Educational Consortium and to move the school district into the top 25 percent in achievement throughout the state. To do this will take a close coordination between all stakeholders in the county, to utilize any and all available funding, and more importantly increase parent involvement with their childrens achievement and day-to-day school activities, Brown said. He said he believes in and supports the need for a strong academic learning environment balanced with the traditional small-school ideas of active student involvement in extracurricular activities including service organizations, athletics and the arts. across the nation. The rst ceremony of grand magnitude was held shortly after the order was declared at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant was one of the Washington of cials who presided over the ceremony, and it was after the speeches that children from the Soldiers and Sailors Orphan Home as well as members of the Grand Army Republic went through the cemetery, placing owers on both Union and Confederate graves, saying prayers and singing hymns. Over the years, Decoration Day became Memorial Day. Congress and President Lyndon Johnson declared that Waterloo, N.Y., was the birthplace of Memorial Day in 1966, ordering that businesses close and that all ags were to be own at halfstaff as they had on May 5, 1866, to honor those veterans who fought and died in the Civil War. The tradition carried on into the 19th century with state legislatures passing proclamations in observance of the day and the military adopting regulations for proper observance on May 30. It wasnt until after World War I that Memorial Day was declared a national holiday by an act of Congress, to be observed on the last Monday of May to honor all fallen veterans in every war. In addition to those veterans who have fallen in the course of war, one shouldnt forget the veterans who are still alive and in need of assistance. If there is a veteran you know in need of services, here are a few local contacts that might help you. These local services are there if veterans or their surviving spouses or children have any questions or concerns regarding eligibility for bene ts or assistance applying for Department of Veterans Affairs Bene ts, which include service-connected disability, non-service connected disability pension, VA health care enrollment, home loans, VA burial bene ts, educational bene ts and state bene ts. In Washington County, the Veterans Services of cer is Christopher Hyatt. If you have questions regarding your eligibility for bene ts or require assistance with completing any necessary forms, please contact me, Hyatt says on the Veterans Services website, www. washington .com/vetservices/veterans.htm.

Call 638-0212. Dear Editor, Usually when someone addresses the public through the media, it is for complaints. Today however, I would like to commend the voluntary re departments in our area. On Monday, April 23, 2012, I received a call telling me one of my barns was on re. I called 911 to nd out there were already emergency vehicles dispatched to the scene. When I arrived the Ponce de Leon Volunteer Fire Department was already there. With a concerted effort volunteers from the following departments responded and the re was contained to the barn and an out building. The other barn beside it was saved. While the barn and out building along with all its contents was a total loss, I witnessed an effort by so many working together, that they deserve high praise. So I want to say thanks to them and every one involved. There were three counties and two states responding for one common good. My family and I want to say thanks. Roger White Ponce de Leon Dear Editor, The family of Mia Chay Brown would like to express many thanks to all the wonderful friends, community, the judicial system and law enforcement of cers who have blessed us in so many ways this past year and a half. No words can adequately express our gratitude for the outpouring of love and sacri ce on behalf of Mia and her family. Thank you and God bless us all. Nancy Williams (Mother of Mia Chay Brown) Bonifay Letters to the EDITOR Ful lling my promise to Felicia Fisinack to set up at the Holmes County Fair and sell blueberries, I packed up with the help of son Glen and went out to the fair on Friday and Saturday nights. I cant report that the farmers market was a howling success, but in addition to selling some of our early berry crop along with homemade jelly, etc. I also had the opportunity to see quite a few of my former students along with other friends and neighbors. First, Id like to commend the fair board for the hard work they did in planning and holding the fair. I havent heard if they were pleased with the change of timing, but that seemed a good idea to me. The weather was perfect, especially in the evening with a gentle breeze to blow away the mosquitoes and gnats and cool the air. Since I was alone at my blueberry table, I was unable to see every thing. The only event I observed was the fashion show presented by the 4-H Sewing Club and narrated by their leader, Natalie Pilcher Boman. It was gratifying to see these young ladies proudly modeling garments they had made with the help, usually, of a mother or grandmother. The political rally was held behind the main fair building near the poultry barn where a money scramble drew a lot of attention. Since I was unable to hear the candidates, I am glad to know that the Womans Club will be sponsoring another one at the H.C.H.S. activities center at a later date. Some who came by and spoke to me include Glenn Hess, Shay McCormick, Bill Parish, Harold Smith, Tim Wells, Kyle Hudson, Tim Brown, Harry Bell and others I cant recall. Among the former students were Lawana Smith Who said I was the best teacher she ever had. I wondered if she wasnt talking about Virginia Chance, Nancy Belser, or Marianne Barton instead of me. I appreciated the compliment, Lawana and thanks for letting me know who you are. Sometimes I dont recognize former students. Tony Bess was another former student who spoke to me. He had fond memories of my taking them on a walking tour to Mr. Ban ls grave site. Near the end of the school year, I would take each class and wed walk across the railroad, west on Ban l Ave. to the site where Mr. George. W. Ban l, the founder of Bonifay is buried. Sometimes, Mr. Robert Curry would join us with a class of his. Tony said that he reads my column every week and wondered why I didnt write about Mr. Ban l. I told him I probably had, but couldnt verify it so if he has forgotten that I wrote it, perhaps everyone else has. Mr. Ban l came to Bonifay from DeFuniak Springs about 1865 where he had served as founder and secretary of the Florida Chautauqua Association. However his original home was in Waukesha, Wisconsin. He came to west Florida as a land agent for the L. & N. Railroad. He platted the map of Bonifay dated May 1, 1886 naming the main street for his home town. He entered a vigorous campaign to encourage mid-westerners and northerners to come to the area where abundant crops and a variety of fruits could be produced in the mild climate and fertile soil. He built the rst store which he operated along with the land business. His biggest venture was the construction of the Eurika Hotel which reigned over down town Bonifays landscape until the late 1980s. He named the town for Judge Frank Bonifay, another land agent for the Railroad Company. Mr. Ban l also was a partner in the opening of The Bank of Bonifay which operated for over a hundred years, since 1906, under the same name. The thing Tony remembered was that Mr. Ban l was buried with his pet. Though some stories say he buried his horse standing up, that was not true. Some confused that with the story that is told of Daniel Webster who buried his horse in an upright position so that in the resurrection, hed be able to just jump astride and gallop away. Mr. Ban ls cat is buried at the foot of his own grave and must have predeceased him because the slab contains the hand lettered inscription, CAT. School children may not remember where or from whom they learned the basics of education, but they remember things like a walking tour of George W. Ban ls grave site or a walking tour of Bonifay City Cemetery looking for Civil War, WWI and WWII gravestones. It was good to see so many former students bringing their children to the fair and making memories with them. Farmers market at the fair A good time for meeting and greeting HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison Graduation time is here, and hundreds of young men and women in Washington and Holmes County are about to face the big question, some for the rst time in their lives the question of what now? As the school year winds down, Ive gotten to attend a few awards banquets and, so far, just one graduation, but that will change Thursday when the Chipley High School graduation is held. That kicks off the season as schools throughout the two counties send their seniors off into the great beyond. If I had to deliver a graduation speech this year, I would be hard pressed to come up with anything to say. College tuition costs more per credit hour than I paid for a full semesters worth of hours back in 1982. The economy is still teetering, although it seems a bit less grim than the past few crops of graduates have had to face. I have no doubt I could pull out a copy of the Washington County News from any previous decade, look in the May or June edition, and nd a writer making the same grim comments. The economy is always up and down, but mostly it seems down, college tuition has always been expensive, and there are always wars and rumors of wars. The only thing new at any graduation is the crop of graduates. These young people are about to start out on their journeys, and for many of them, that journey is uncertain, which brings us back to the what now? One thing I would want to say, in my imaginary speech to the Class of 2012, is enjoy the what now? experience. There is a saying in Zen Buddhism, In the beginners mind, there are in nite possibilities. The morning after the Class of 2012 tosses their mortar boards into the sky, the in nite possibilities start manifesting themselves. Many students know what the immediate now may hold college, vo-tech school or even full-time employment. But those of us from the Classes of Long Ago know that those plans are as likely as not going to change by this time next year, and they might change radically. Change is good. Change is pretty much 99 percent of everyones now, but as more and more days, then months and nally years pass between the graduate and graduation day the changes get bigger, but they dont get any less scary. In fact, as we age, I think the opposite is true change gets harder and scarier as we get more set in our ways. The Class of 2012 is about to receive their rst big dose of change. To the graduates I would say enjoy the change, and enjoy the uncertainty of what now? Change is pretty much the only thing you can count on from here on, so you might as well start getting comfortable with uncertainty. Embrace the what now? And give it everything you have. If you have a dream, or plan, or goal, do whatever it takes to make it happen. That way 30 years from now, you dont have to worry about one day spending the rest of your days listening to the evil twin of what now what if ? RANDAL SEYLER Editor Graduates: Embrace the what now?

OUTDOORS Wednesday, May 30, 2012 Page 8 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section FWC The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is considering permanently adding two weeks to the end of the recreational season for bay scallops and is asking the public to take a survey to determine interest in this potential change. For the past two years, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission extended the harvest season for bay scallops to help relieve economic hardships experienced by the communities surrounding the scallop harvesting areas that were affected by the 2010 oil spill. In 2011, FWC scientists determined that the bay scallop population in the harvest area has remained stable even after the extended seasons. The current scallop harvesting season is July 1-Sept. 10. The proposed season would be July 1-Sept. 24. Extending the season could bene t small businesses because September is when shing and tourism usually drop off. Additionally, bay scallops are larger at the end of the season. The survey is available online through June 6 at www.surveymonkey. com/s/ZGB6R7D Have you ever seen shermen with equipment that obviously was too much horsepower for the sh they were trying to catch? So many shermen do this every day not knowing how much pleasure they are depriving themselves when they do catch a sh. The best example I can think of is when the Spanish mackerel arrive. Fishermen go out and troll with equipment that could pull a hog out of a bog. You dont need a 4/0 reel to catch a 1or 2-pound sh. To add insult to misery, they sh with a rig that has up to 10 hooks on it. If you caught a sh on every hook you would have your limit on three tries. When they do catch a sh, it looks like a rock being skipped across the water. The sh look like a skier being pulled behind the boat. Whats wrong with this picture? Well, for one nobody is enjoying anything. Not you and not the sh. Its sort of like eating an expensive steak in two bites. Downgrade tackle, slow down and enjoy the moment. Spanish mackerel have not been netted for many years and in the interim have grown to weights no one has ever seen. A 5to 7-pound mackerel is not an oddity anymore. These sh can be caught with a small spinning rod or y rod, and the sherman can go home and tell about the big one that didnt get away. Downsize, slow down and enjoy. Nobody enjoys smelling motor fumes. Instead of trolling for Spanish, nd them and cast to them and turn off that stinky loud motor. Believe me, a rst-timer will enjoy the trip much more if he or she isnt getting sick smelling motor fumes, and you will enjoy catching sh with smaller tackle. A sh will overpower you every now and then, but you cant catch them all. Go to you favorite tackle shop and pick out a medium-weight rod and a reel that will accommodate 8to 10-pound test line. After you get used to this type of tackle, you will never go back to those backbreaking rods that were designed to sh in deep water and for much larger sh. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net OH, SNAP(PER) Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Friday marks a big day for recreational and charter fishermen alike: the distinctive (in appearance and most certainly in taste) red snapper season begins. The 2012 Gulf of Mexico red snapper recreational harvest season opens Friday in both state and federal waters and runs for 40 days, ending July 10. This years state season, which is the same as the 2012 federal recreational red snapper season in the Gulf of Mexico, was set in May at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission meeting. Florida state waters in the Gulf extend from shore to 9 nautical miles; federal waters extend beyond that line to 200 nautical miles. The Gulf red snapper stock is improving, but the population still needs an increase in the number of older fish for it to be sustainable. Red snapper are estimated to live more than 50 years, but the current stock consists primarily of fish that are only a few years old, according to the FWC. Older fish are the key to rebuilding the population because older female red snapper produce more eggs than younger females. This season will help continue to rebuild the red snapper population so that more red snapper fishing opportunities will be possible in the future. More information about red snapper fishing is available online at MyFWC.com/Fishing by clicking on Saltwater, Recreational Regulations and then Gulf Red Snapper. And while it is open season on snapper, the recreational Atlantic snook and gulf amberjack seasons both end Friday. Snook will reopen for harvest in Atlantic federal, state and inland waters, including Lake Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River, Sept. 1. Snook remains closed for harvest in Gulf of Mexico state waters including Everglades National Park and Monroe County through Aug. 31. A stock assessment on snook will be presented to the FWC Commission at its June 27-28 meeting in West Palm Beach. Greater amberjack will reopen for harvest in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters Aug. 1. State waters in the Atlantic extend from shore to three nautical miles and in the Gulf from shore to nine nautical miles. Seasonal harvest closures protect Floridas valuable snook and greater amberjack populations and help sustain and improve the fishery for the future. Learn more about recreational fishing at MyFWC.com/Fishing by clicking on Saltwater and Recreational Regulations. In with the snapper, out with the amberjack Scallop season might be extended by two weeks FWC Another delicacy becomes more available beginning Friday, so get your saltine crackers, Tabasco sauce and horseradish ready. Beginning Friday, Apalachicola oysters can be commercially harvested seven days a week throughout the year. Previously, commercial harvest was not allowed on Fridays and Saturdays from June 1 through Aug. 31 and on Saturdays and Sundays from Sept. 1 through Nov. 15. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission approved this change at its February 2012 meeting. This increased harvesting opportunity comes in response to public health management changes made by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in 2010. These changes signi cantly reduced the number of hours available for harvest each day during the warmer months of the year. The seven-day workweek will allow Apalachicola Bay oyster harvesters the ability to make up for time lost harvesting. This action by the FWC was supported by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com NASCAR fans, sorry about my sudden disappearance last week. I was called to serve jury duty last Monday and missed the deadline for Wednesdays paper. Im back now, and boy, what a busy two weeks it has been in NASCAR. Lets start out at Darlington. Jimmie Johnson claimed the win in the Sprint Cup Series All-Star Race, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won another Nationwide Series that kept him at the top of the point standings and Justin Lofton took home the win in the Camping World Truck Series. Also in Darlington, Kurt Busch seemed to be up to his same old antics again. During an altercation with Ryan Newmans pit crew, NASCAR said Busch was in violation of three rules from the NASCAR rule book: action taken detrimental to stock car racing; reckless driving on pit road during a race; and getting involved in an altercation with another competitor after the race. For these violations, Busch was ned $50,000 and has been put on probation until July 25. Busch was not the only one put on probation after the All-Star Race. Ryan Newmans crew chief, Tony Gibson, was put on probation through June 27 for failing to control his team. Andrew Rueger, a crew member for Newman, also was put on probation for failing to comply with a directive from a NASCAR ofcial and was ned $5,000 for the offense. To top off the weekend, Buschs motor home driver Craig Stickler was suspended through the end of the year and ned $5,000 after interfering with a member of the Fox broadcasting team. Let me know what action you think James Finch should take against Busch and his antics. I will try my best to get your comments to Finch at Phoenix Racing. Should he forgive Busch and let him serve his probation and be done with it, or should Phoenix Racing drop him? Let me know. Now as for this past weekends races in Charlotte, not very exciting. Kasey Kahne took home the win in the Sprint Cup, and Brad Keselowski had a Nationwide win. RESULTS FROM CHARLOTTE History 300 Nationwide Series 1. Brad Keselowski 2. Denny Hamlin 3. Kyle Busch 4.

Chipley posted a boys basketball championship and was runner-up in football. Holmes County made it to Final Fours in both girls basketball and baseball. Union County, however, would have to get the overall nod. The Tigers not only won the 1A baseball crown by defeating Holmes County alst week, they reached the state semi nals in four sports. Union County was the only school to be represented in more than two sports at the state level, the new Rural classi cation instituted in the fall for football and volleyball, then boys and girls basketball and nally softball and baseball. Tigers Athletic Director Ronnie Pruitt said success at his school extended far beyond the playing elds. It carried over in our whole community, our kids, the behavior in hallways, this school year has really own by, Pruitt said. We were fth in the state in academics, the school is an A-plus Its really a whole lot more than I expected. To be a big part of it and see it happen in athletics, academics, behavior and the community ... And in sports like softball, now were having to do JV teams where in the past we had a hard time just getting enough kids out. The new classi cation for smallerenrollment schools eliminated the component where they had to face private schools of similar size, but that could attract standout athletes from large population centers. The recently concluded state baseball tournament provided a prime example of how the playing eld had become tilted favoring the privates. Four public schools decided the Rural 1A title, but in the next three smallest classi cations, 2A, 3A and 4A, every school that reached the Final Four was a private power, as were three of the four in 5A and two of the four in 6A. Holmes County football coach Brad Johnson saw Blue Devils teams gladly accept the challenge of the new guidelines. It meant a lot. Overall were having as successful a sports program as I can remember, Johnson said. I dont know if its directly related, or if we just have a decent run of athletes or what. Its just a good situation. Johnson said Holmes Countys football team, undefeated until facing Chipley in the region title game, set the tone in the fall. As a result, four athletic teams at the school advanced to region title games. It all kind of started with football, it being the rst sport of the year, Johnson said. After our success there was kind of a carryover. There were higher expectations. And I know people in the community were a lot more excited about how things were going. Union County produced running back C.J. Spiller, who went on to star at Clemson and now plays for the Buffalo Bills. Even with an athlete of that caliber, the Tigers had a dif cult time competing on a statewide level until this season. It also should be noted that because of a decreased number of schools in Class 1A, region tournaments consisted of four schools rather than eight. Our last Final Four in football was back when C.J. was here in 2004, Pruitt said. In baseball, we made it in 1976 and lost in the championship game. I dont know if wed ever made it in volleyball, and we had in basketball in 1994. The 2011-12 school year certainly changed all that. And very likely, the future. Florida High School Athletic Association Executive Director Roger Dearing was emphatic in declaring the new classi cation a success in its rst year. I dont think there is any doubt about it when you look at the list of schools that went to district championships, region championships and state semi nals and nals, you had so many schools that had not had that opportunity since the 1980s, Dearing said.

Wednesday, May 30, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 One of the worst things about this time of year is the increase of eas on pets, outside, and, possibly, in homes. Adult eas cause the most problems for pets. In order to become adult eas, the blood-sucking creatures need warm weather, between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and about 70 to 80 percent humidity, said Dr. Alison Diesel, lecturer in dermatology at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Those ideal conditions are exactly what we are experiencing during this time of the year, which is why we generally see more eas coming out in the spring, Diesel said. She added that eas can be present year-round in Texas because there is not usually a true winter. Fleas can cause various problems for pets. Some animals, for example, are allergic to an allergen in the ea saliva causing the animal to have an allergic reaction. This causes the animal to scratch, which could lead to a secondary bacterial skin infection. If there is a large ea problem, anemia could be a potential problem, especially among small animals that do not have large amounts of blood. Fleas can also carry diseases such as tapeworms or Bartonella, and infect both pets and humans. Amanda Friedeck, a veterinary technician at the CVM, said there is no way to completely prevent eas, but a key factor to controlling eas is breaking the life cycle. The best way to control eas is to break the cycle. More eas lay more eggs. The best treatment either kills the adults or kills one of the juvenile stages, Friedeck said. Diesel said the ea life cycle has four phases: the adult eas lay eggs, the eggs hatch into larvae, the larvae turns into pupae, which, eventually, turn into adults. Ideally, targeting several phases of the ea lifecycle is best, particularly when dealing with an infestation. The easiest stage to target is the adult ea since these lives on the pet. The other stages (eggs, larvae, pupae) are present in the environment, Diesel said. Both Diesel and Friedeck said the best way to determine treatment of an animals ea problem is to take them to a veterinarian to discuss the best options and medications. Your pets veterinarian can help recommend the most appropriate product to help prevent eas based on other factors (e.g. other skin conditions, food allergies, etc.) as well as discuss the appropriate way to administer the product (e.g. orally or topically), Diesel said. Diesel suggested using a ea prevention that lasts the entire month and is still effective if the pet gets wet. Using ea prevention every 30 days, or more frequently in some situations, can provide the best protection from eas biting your pet, can kill adult eas rapidly, and can prevent a ea infestation from being established in your pets environment, Diesel said. Diesel and Friedeck agreed that it is important to minimize an animals exposure to eas by avoiding infested areas and pets coming in contact with animals that have eas such as wild animals. There are some things which can be done to minimize exposure to eas: avoid known infested areas, do not allow your pet to come into contact with wild animals or burrows, and protect areas of the house where wild animals may enter to minimize wild animals from establishing residency in the rst place, Diesel said. If eas become a problem inside the house, Diesel and Friedeck suggested vacuuming once a week. Vacuuming is a very good way to rid of eas in the house, but the bag must be thrown away and removed from the house, Friedeck said. She added that if there is a large ea presence, there are in-house treatments and exterminators. There are some inhouse treatments and bombs, but they should only be used in heavily burdened environments, Friedeck said. Diesel suggested focusing on places where the pets spends most of their time inside the house when bombing because that will contain the most concentrated area of eas. Dont forget under beds and furniture, behind curtains, and along hallways connecting rooms when treating the house for eas. Again, it may be best to contact a professional exterminator when there is a large ea burden present, she said. In addition to treating animals and inside of homes, it may be necessary to treat the outside environment. This can be done by spraying areas of the yard that are high in ea population. This includes shaded areas, under trees and bushes, in dog houses, under porches and decks. As with indoor control, when the burden is high, a professional exterminator may be the most help, Diesel said. Diesel said the best strategy against eas is to practice year-round prevention by treating all pets with ea medicine as well as treating inside and outside the home if an infestation is suspected. It is much easier to prevent eas than to treat eas, she said. About pet talk Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

It took four to ve months to complete, said Brooks. We were very fortunate to receive so many donations from the community. We couldnt have done it without them. Brooks explained that it was the Bonifay Cemetery Committee who raised the funds. The Bonifay Cemetery Committee is appointed by the mayor and council members, has about 10 members and has been around for over 50 years, said Brooks. The committee has been very active in keeping the cemetery maintained. They have done very well and have made many improvements. Brooks said that with most of the labor and construction they tried to remain with local people. Weve got a plaque out here in memory of Mrs. Mary Padgett, who was one of the founding members of the Cemetery Committee, said committee member Wilhelmina Parish Belcer. I think its a great addition for those families that have family buried here. Brooks wished to thank all those who contributed to the cause. Not a single penny came from the city, so I can say if it werent for those generous donations this project wouldnt have been possible, said Brooks. The person who gave $5 is just as important as the one who gave thousands. Thank you for all your donations. Brooks said that the reason the Cemetery Committee is able to continue with regular maintenance and beauti cation of the cemetery is mainly in part to donations. Anyone interested in making a donation to Bonifay Cemetery Committee may send it to Bonifay Cemetery Committee, P.O. Box 657, Bonifay, FL 32425.

By Rev. James L. Snyder I must make a confession. It has taken me a long time to get to the place where I am willing and comfortable to make such an admission. I think some of my friends will be shocked at what I have to say. I think it is time I come clean and confess. Sort of, clean the air, so to speak. Simply put, I used to believe in leprechauns. I know that comes as a shock to all of my friends. At a distance, I look like a very reasonable, well-adjusted person. And the further away the better I look. The same thing goes with my distant relatives. The more distant they are the more I like them. Nobody would suspect that I had such a problem. You cannot tell what burdens people are carrying just by looking at them. It all came to me by way of reading books. When I was a young person, I read many books that had to do with leprechauns, rainbows and pots full of gold at the end of those rainbows. I was young and nave at the time and believed everything I read. Once while my father was sleeping on the couch I ask him if he believed in leprechauns and he grunted in such a way that I took it to mean that he also believed in them. If you cannot trust your father while he is sleeping, who in the world can you trust? Many a day I spent in the woods at the end of our property looking for leprechauns. I can testify that they are rather elusive creatures but several times, I almost caught one. They always were just a few seconds quicker than I was. I looked where I thought they were but they were nowhere to be found. Do not get me wrong here. I was never frustrated in my fruitless search of leprechauns. There is no better way to spend a day in the woods than searching for the elusive leprechaun. I began to think what I would do if I actually caught one. Then what would I do in the woods? It is always better to seek and not nd than to nd something and have to quit the seeking. I think it is something like shermen. Few shermen really sh for sh. They sh so they can go home and brag about the one that got away. It is hard to brag about the sh you caught and then there is the messy job of cleaning those sh. No, it is better to have shed and not caught anything to have shed and caught something that you have to take home and clean. Such was my thoughts concerning my leprechaun pursuit. Many an evening I entertained my parents with the exciting exploits of searching and almost catching a leprechaun today. I am sure they got tired of hearing, but I never tired of telling. Then the time came when I really had to face the facts. After almost a decade of diligently searching for leprechauns, I had to conclude that they were simply a gment of my imagination. And you know what happens to gs if you keep them around for a long time. I had to realize there were no such creatures as leprechauns. I must confess that it was a rather sad day for me. It was the beginning of many sad days like this. For instance, the day I realized Santa Claus was not real. Every year I diligently prepared my Christmas list starting out with, Dear Ole Santa, and dictated my list of Christmas hopefuls. Often I would sit on his lap and carefully read my list to him. The last time I did this my wife made me get off his lap. Something about being too big or something like that. To my recollection, he never made good on any of those requests. Jolly old soul? Phooey! Then there was the Easter Bunny. This had me for quite a while. After all, I love the chocolate Easter bunnies he brought me along with the rest of the candy. Unlike Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny was very generous in dousing me with candy galore. I truly hated putting the Easter Bunny away. Probably the last one I will mention would be when a politician says, I feel your pain. At rst, I thought this was a genuine concern for my state of affairs. When I found out he was just playing me in his political theater I wanted him to feel some more of my pain. Pondering this I begin to realize that many things that I have believed in turned out not to be true. It is quite disconcerting when something you have believed in for a long time turns out to be phony. While I am confessing here, I must confess that only one thing has turned out not to be disappointing. That one thing has been the Bible. It has been the only thing that has not let me down in life. I take great comfort in Psalms 119:105, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Many things disappoint me and I have given them up. I start each day with the only thing that will never let me down, that is the Word of God. I believe the Bible. The Rev. James L.

This Message Courtesy of Imagining the Past Hav e you ever wondered what it would have been like to live in Biblical times? While it is tempting to believe that merely reading the Bible can transport us back to the ancient civilizations of the near East, that is surely nave. Understand ing distant civilizations requires much more than understanding what those civilizations lacked (e.g., cars, electricity, modern plumbing, etc.). It also requires that we have a positive under standing of their language and culture, includ ing the pattern of rituals and manners which pervaded their culture. Much of the Bible is strange to us because we simply do not understand the culture. In order to imagine, or re-imagine the past, it is necessary to thoroughly immerse yourself in the culture. Besides simply reading the Bible, we should engage in histori cal studies to supplement our understanding, and maybe even attempt to learn some Hebrew or Greek. This would be an ambitious undertaking, but one which would truly allow us to see with new eyes.

Most religions place a high emphasis upon charity, as do many secular organizations. Even when people have differences of opinion on other points, theyll generally agree that helping others, both globally and locally, is a good idea. Naturally, people have different motivations for practicing acts of charity. Sometimes, theyre interested in raising awareness about circumstances that affect themselves or a loved one. For instance, I know someone whose child suffers from a certain disease, and as a result, became active with an organization dedicated to ghting that illness. Others might respond to stories of disasters, both at home and abroad. Even people who dont usually make regular charitable contributions will often donate after hearing news of events such as the earthquakes in Haiti, tornadoes and hurricanes in the U.S., and tsunamis in Asia. And then there are some people who like to do good while looking good. It may seem super cial to raise money for charity while simultaneously promoting your own self-interests, but some people do just that. Its nothing new. In the Bible, Jesus mentions people who use almsgiving as a means of drawing attention to themselves. He notes in Matthew 6:2 that in doing so, theyve already received their reward. For them, satisfying their own vanity is the primary goal. Even at that, it doesnt mean that their charity is worthless. When I was young, I knew a woman who was quite open about wanting to give to a certain charity because she hoped to get her name engraved on a big, shiny plaque. Someone made a remark behind her back about how awful and shallow she was, but someone from the charity remarked, Who cares why shes giving? Were just happy that shes giving at all. And its true. Motives are between you and your conscience. If youre giving because you want your name up in lights, there are better reasons to give, but your contribution can be used for good, nonetheless. A homeless person eating the food that your money purchased isnt going to care what prompted you to make that donation. Regardless of why youre giving, the important thing is that youre doing it. Eventually, a person might be able to work out his or her ego issues and nd a more sel ess motive for charity, but in the meantime, if getting a building named after you is what it takes to get you to pry your wallet open, so be it. In my many years of interviewing practitioners of different religions, Ive only encountered one group that was atly against charity. It was an independent Christian church that felt charity was useless because of John 12:8, in which Jesus says, the poor you will always have with you. They interpreted it to mean that since the poor were always intended to be part of the human population, giving them charity is not only senseless, but a direct violation of Gods will. However, almost every other group Ive dealt with engages in some kind of charitable action. Even religious groups that are too small to make much of an impact by themselves will often band together with larger groups to help the disadvantaged. Charity can be found in small gestures as well as large ones. You dont have to provide meals for a thousand people at once or pay for an entire wing of a hospital. Nobodys expecting you to single-handedly cure cancer or restore sight to the blind. Even if you qualify as a recipient of charity yourself, you can still help others. Acts of kindness are encouragement are free. I feel that reassurance and support qualify as acts of charity. There are times when a kind word can be worth more than gold. There are people whove approached me in moments of sorrow, frustration or despair who changed my life. They didnt give me money. They gave me hope. Think of how many times a day a small child hears the word no. Maybe you can be the rst person of the day to smile kindly and say yes. Do you know someone whos struggling to learn a new skill? You dont have to be a professor to help. Teaching others can be quite rewarding. You can take groceries to a housebound person, or make sure that a senior whos living alone is getting enough to eat. Justice is an act of charity, too. Its important to stand up for what is right, even if other people ridicule you for it. Show your concern for others by refusing to idly stand by while theyre being bullied or harassed. If nothing else, simply be more encouraging than discouraging. Sometimes, people describe their spirituality by using terms that involve light. They saw the light, are walking in the light, or are trying to become enlightened. Its a tting image. As the old saying goes, A single candle can illuminate an entire room. Its important to make life better in both the spiritual and physical realms. Thats why its crucial to bring light to others on a regular basis. When you see the darkness of injustice, ignorance, fear, discrimination, poverty or unkindness, your light, even if small, may be suf ciently bright for others to nd their way to a better life. The childrens song, This Little Light of Mine has more meaning than most people realize. We honor Gods creations by loving them. Anyone who routinely belittles others, crushes the wills of children, denies help to the elderly, mistreats their employees or co-workers, engages in domestic abuse, practices bigotry or otherwise slams the door in the faces of their fellow humans, is not honoring God. Such a person is essentially saying that Gods creations are garbage, and hence, not deserving of love. Anyone who claims to care about God will practice charity toward the beings that hes made. If Gods creations are worth his time and effort, how can they not be worth a few moments of ours, as well?

I have been told that something like 80 percent of emergency room visits arent emergencies, said the Rev. Shelly Chandler, pastor of the First Baptist Church. Clinics like this save millions of dollars in visits to the ER. The clinic is run with volunteer help and is open two Saturdays a month, Chandler said, and is organized through the state of Florida. We wouldnt be able to do this without the immunity the state provides. The state takes away the liability as long as the clinic is staffed by volunteers. The clinic was the idea of Diane Little and Dr. Lisa Bailey, who had helped out in a similar clinic and returned to Bonifay with a plan, he said. There are 79 similar clinics spread across the state. It doesnt have to be a church, any organization can open one, he said. The church provided the house for the clinic, and the services are provided free to clients who meet the requirements, based on double Memorial Day honors veterans past and presentBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance, said Maj. Gen. John A. Logan. Let pleasant paths invite the coming and going of reverent visitors and fond mourners. Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic. It was three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, that the leader of the Grand Army of the Republic, the organization over veterans affairs of that time, created Decoration Day as a time to remember fallen soldiers and decorate their graves with owers. Logan created an order for this day to be established on May 30, when all the owers were in bloom Brown seeks superintendent positionFrom Staff ReportsBONIFAY Buddy Brown of Westville is seeking the of ce of superintendent of schools for Holmes County. Brown said he intends to utilize his diverse leadership experience in guiding the Holmes School District, he said in a news release. He believes in scal responsibility but that the focus and priority of education must be centered on the students and children of the community. With the many challenges presently confronting Florida schools and even more so the small and rural districts of Florida, Brown said he feels that now is a prime time to address the lack of consideration of the needs of the rural and small districts within the state legislature. The importance of developing and building a school district infrastructure that can adapt to the changing needs of the community and the whims of the state and federal legislation is ever more apparent today, Brown said. Brown is a third-generation educator. His grandfather was a certi ed teacher dating back to the early 1900s, and a number of his aunts began their teaching careers in Holmes County Special to the NewsBONIFAY Mayor Lawrence Cloud recognized the Bonifay Fire Department for their outstanding work on May 14. In appreciation of the citys support, Bonifay Fire and Rescue bought and presented Cloud and the city council members a new gavel, which replaces the City of Bonifay traditional rubber mallet used as a gavel for council meetings. Council member Richard Woodham suggested the city move a wall out 4 feet to make room for new equipment for 911 dispatch and ask the county to pay for the materials. The council approved of writing a letter to the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners requesting them to pay for the materials and have the inmates do the labor. The council approved of requesting $60,000 for the street department and $60,000 for the re department from the BOCC for this upcoming budget year. In other business, the council approved of Change Order I for the Wastewater Treatment Facility Upgrade. approved of Hatch Mott MacDonald responding to the Department of Environmental Protection regarding the DEPs warning letter about high nitrogen and unionized ammonia. approved of putting a voluntary contribution on the water bills to help the local Dixie Youth baseball team with expenses. Eula Clark, local resident, came before the council and requested that the ditch on East Moore Lane be taken care of so it will not grow up again. She also requested that the police do an extra patrol in that area. Council members approved of adopting Proclamation 1201, proclaiming May as Pledge of Civility Month, and the panel approved of donating $200 to Holmes County High Schools Project Graduation. The councils regularly scheduled meeting on May 28 was canceled in observance of Memorial Day. The council will meet again at 6 p.m. June 11 at Bonifay City Hall.New clinic helps poor, uninsuredBonifay mayor recognizes re department BUDDY BROWN SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISERHolmes County High School ROTC raises the ag at Hickory Hill Baptist Church during a Memorial Day Service May 20 at the entrance to the Hickory Hill Baptist Church Cemetery.

For a family of four, the income level is over $4,000 a month, Chandler said, so a wide range of people are open to visit the clinic. The state health department provides services on a sliding scale fee, and there is a paper trail some members of society wish to avoid, Chandler said, which makes the churchs clinic appealing to people such as undocumented workers who need medical care. The clinic also does not carry narcotics, nor are narcotics prescribed at the clinic, Chandler said. You cant come in and say your back hurts and get a bottle of OxyContin. Best of all, the clinic also gives the church volunteers a chance to minister to visitors. The program works really well for a government program, and it also gives us a chance to minister while helping people in their everyday lives, Chandler said. before moving to other parts of the state. Brown lives on property homesteaded by his great-grandparents in the Westville community. He is the son of the late Elton Brown and was raised with the help of his Aunt and Uncle Wilbur Lee and Mary Maxwell and the rest of the Westville community. He is married to Stephanie Pilcher, formerly of Bonifay, and they have a daughter, Haley Harris, a freshman in college. He and his wife are members of Westville Baptist Church. He attended elementary school in Ponce de Leon and is a graduate of Holmes County High School. He holds an associates degree from Chipola College, a bachelors from the University of West Florida and a masters in educational leadership from UWF. He holds a teaching certi cate in social science grades 6-12 and is certi ed in principalship by the Florida Department of Education. He is retired from the Florida Army National Guard with 20 years of honorable service in the 3rd Battalion, 124th Infantry Regiment and 53rd Infantry Brigade. He rose through the ranks from private to captain, where he held numerous leadership and staff positions to include seven years of command time at both the local National Guard unit and Headquarters Company in Panama City. He is a recipient of the Florida Distinguished Service Award and the Florida Commendation Medal for Meritorious Service while on state active duty, along with other federal and state awards and medals. Brown worked as a substitute teacher in the Holmes School District and assistant coach in football and girls basketball at Holmes County High School until he was hired as a full-time teacher at Bonifay Middle School, where he also became the football and basketball coach for the boys program. After a stint as teacher and coach, he moved into administration, becoming the assistant principal at Ponce de Leon High School. He has 13 years of administrative experience at both the county and district levels. He spent 16 months working in the district of ce as a districtlevel administrator, becoming familiar with the workings of the district of ce in the areas of policy, personnel, school law and the interactions of the district with the Department of Education and other school districts throughout the state of Florida. He is now principal of Ponce de Leon High School. If elected, Brown said he pledges to maintain an administration with an open-door policy geared toward listening to the needs of the students, parents and employees of the Holmes School District. His goal would be to work toward making the Holmes School District the leader in student achievement within the Panhandle Educational Consortium and to move the school district into the top 25 percent in achievement throughout the state. To do this will take a close coordination between all stakeholders in the county, to utilize any and all available funding, and more importantly increase parent involvement with their childrens achievement and day-to-day school activities, Brown said. He said he believes in and supports the need for a strong academic learning environment balanced with the traditional small-school ideas of active student involvement in extracurricular activities including service organizations, athletics and the arts. across the nation. The rst ceremony of grand magnitude was held shortly after the order was declared at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant was one of the Washington of cials who presided over the ceremony, and it was after the speeches that children from the Soldiers and Sailors Orphan Home as well as members of the Grand Army Republic went through the cemetery, placing owers on both Union and Confederate graves, saying prayers and singing hymns. Over the years, Decoration Day became Memorial Day. Congress and President Lyndon Johnson declared that Waterloo, N.Y., was the birthplace of Memorial Day in 1966, ordering that businesses close and that all ags were to be own at halfstaff as they had on May 5, 1866, to honor those veterans who fought and died in the Civil War. The tradition carried on into the 19th century with state legislatures passing proclamations in observance of the day and the military adopting regulations for proper observance on May 30. It wasnt until after World War I that Memorial Day was declared a national holiday by an act of Congress, to be observed on the last Monday of May to honor all fallen veterans in every war. In addition to those veterans who have fallen in the course of war, one shouldnt forget the veterans who are still alive and in need of assistance. If there is a veteran you know in need of services, here are a few local contacts that might help you. These local services are there if veterans or their surviving spouses or children have any questions or concerns regarding eligibility for bene ts or assistance applying for Department of Veterans Affairs Bene ts, which include service-connected disability, non-service connected disability pension, VA health care enrollment, home loans, VA burial bene ts, educational bene ts and state bene ts.

We serve six counties, helping 54 agencies, Ron Sharpe, United Way of Northwest Floridas regional director of resource development, said. Im here to let you know that all the money doesnt go back into Bay County and to show you agencies, local agencies, that are receiving this money. First, he announced the Holmes County United Way Executive Team: Melissa Bruner with Regions Bank, Fran Haithcoat with Wells Fargo Bank and Brenda Blitch with Doctors Memorial Hospital; and the FSECC Steering Committee Members: Jadena Wilson-Horton with the Department of Corrections and Gwenda Padgett with the Department of Health.

Julia Bullington, coordinator for the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce, explained that the money raised in the Holmes County United Way Campaign totaled $19,108 and the total money raised and dedicated to the Holmes County United Way Agencies totaled $17,479. Many of their agencies have local matching dollars to apply for grants and programs, Bullington said. For example, with every $1 United Way gives to Early Learning Coalitions School Readiness Program they receive $16 in matching funds; for every $1 United way gives to Life Management for their child adoption program they receive $25 in matching funds. United Way recognized the United Way Afliated Agencies who run their own workplace campaigns. The largest part of our campaign last year was Doctors Memorial Hospital, Sharpe said. I presented this to the administration, and they just ran with it. He then presented a plaque to Doctors Memorial Hospital for Largest New Campaign, which was a total of $2,661. Hes very passionate about what he does, so its very difcult not to say no to a spirit thats so infectious, Brenda Blitch, PR director for DMH, said. What we did was introduce it to our employees and educate them that they could give a $1 a week. They were more than willing to support the cause. They then made a large check presentation to all the agencies present for the money raised in last years United Way Campaign.

Call 638-0212. Dear Editor, Usually when someone addresses the public through the media, it is for complaints. Today however, I would like to commend the voluntary re departments in our area. On Monday, April 23, 2012, I received a call telling me one of my barns was on re. I called 911 to nd out there were already emergency vehicles dispatched to the scene. When I arrived the Ponce de Leon Volunteer Fire Department was already there. With a concerted effort volunteers from the following departments responded and the re was contained to the barn and an out building. The other barn beside it was saved. While the barn and out building along with all its contents was a total loss, I witnessed an effort by so many working together, that they deserve high praise. So I want to say thanks to them and every one involved. There were three counties and two states responding for one common good. My family and I want to say thanks.Roger WhitePonce de Leon Dear Editor, The family of Mia Chay Brown would like to express many thanks to all the wonderful friends, community, the judicial system and law enforcement of cers who have blessed us in so many ways this past year and a half. No words can adequately express our gratitude for the outpouring of love and sacri ce on behalf of Mia and her family. Thank you and God bless us all.Nancy Williams (Mother of Mia Chay Brown)Bonifay Letters to the EDITORFul lling my promise to Felicia Fisinack to set up at the Holmes County Fair and sell blueberries, I packed up with the help of son Glen and went out to the fair on Friday and Saturday nights. I cant report that the farmers market was a howling success, but in addition to selling some of our early berry crop along with homemade jelly, etc. I also had the opportunity to see quite a few of my former students along with other friends and neighbors. First, Id like to commend the fair board for the hard work they did in planning and holding the fair. I havent heard if they were pleased with the change of timing, but that seemed a good idea to me. The weather was perfect, especially in the evening with a gentle breeze to blow away the mosquitoes and gnats and cool the air. Since I was alone at my blueberry table, I was unable to see every thing. The only event I observed was the fashion show presented by the 4-H Sewing Club and narrated by their leader, Natalie Pilcher Boman. It was gratifying to see these young ladies proudly modeling garments they had made with the help, usually, of a mother or grandmother. The political rally was held behind the main fair building near the poultry barn where a money scramble drew a lot of attention. Since I was unable to hear the candidates, I am glad to know that the Womans Club will be sponsoring another one at the H.C.H.S. activities center at a later date. Some who came by and spoke to me include Glenn Hess, Shay McCormick, Bill Parish, Harold Smith, Tim Wells, Kyle Hudson, Tim Brown, Harry Bell and others I cant recall. Among the former students were Lawana Smith Who said I was the best teacher she ever had. I wondered if she wasnt talking about Virginia Chance, Nancy Belser, or Marianne Barton instead of me. I appreciated the compliment, Lawana and thanks for letting me know who you are. Sometimes I dont recognize former students. Tony Bess was another former student who spoke to me. He had fond memories of my taking them on a walking tour to Mr. Ban ls grave site. Near the end of the school year, I would take each class and wed walk across the railroad, west on Ban l Ave. to the site where Mr. George. W. Ban l, the founder of Bonifay is buried. Sometimes, Mr. Robert Curry would join us with a class of his. Tony said that he reads my column every week and wondered why I didnt write about Mr. Ban l. I told him I probably had, but couldnt verify it so if he has forgotten that I wrote it, perhaps everyone else has. Mr. Ban l came to Bonifay from DeFuniak Springs about 1865 where he had served as founder and secretary of the Florida Chautauqua Association. However his original home was in Waukesha, Wisconsin. He came to west Florida as a land agent for the L. & N. Railroad. He platted the map of Bonifay dated May 1, 1886 naming the main street for his home town. He entered a vigorous campaign to encourage mid-westerners and northerners to come to the area where abundant crops and a variety of fruits could be produced in the mild climate and fertile soil. He built the rst store which he operated along with the land business. His biggest venture was the construction of the Eurika Hotel which reigned over down town Bonifays landscape until the late 1980s. He named the town for Judge Frank Bonifay, another land agent for the Railroad Company. Mr. Ban l also was a partner in the opening of The Bank of Bonifay which operated for over a hundred years, since 1906, under the same name. The thing Tony remembered was that Mr. Ban l was buried with his pet. Though some stories say he buried his horse standing up, that was not true. Some confused that with the story that is told of Daniel Webster who buried his horse in an upright position so that in the resurrection, hed be able to just jump astride and gallop away. Mr. Ban ls cat is buried at the foot of his own grave and must have predeceased him because the slab contains the hand lettered inscription, CAT. School children may not remember where or from whom they learned the basics of education, but they remember things like a walking tour of George W. Ban ls grave site or a walking tour of Bonifay City Cemetery looking for Civil War, WWI and WWII gravestones. It was good to see so many former students bringing their children to the fair and making memories with them.Farmers market at the fairA good time for meeting and greetingHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Graduation time is here, and hundreds of young men and women in Washington and Holmes County are about to face the big question, some for the rst time in their lives the question of what now? As the school year winds down, Ive gotten to attend a few awards banquets and, so far, just one graduation, but that will change Thursday when the Chipley High School graduation is held. That kicks off the season as schools throughout the two counties send their seniors off into the great beyond. If I had to deliver a graduation speech this year, I would be hard pressed to come up with anything to say. College tuition costs more per credit hour than I paid for a full semesters worth of hours back in 1982. The economy is still teetering, although it seems a bit less grim than the past few crops of graduates have had to face. I have no doubt I could pull out a copy of the Washington County News from any previous decade, look in the May or June edition, and nd a writer making the same grim comments. The economy is always up and down, but mostly it seems down, college tuition has always been expensive, and there are always wars and rumors of wars. The only thing new at any graduation is the crop of graduates. These young people are about to start out on their journeys, and for many of them, that journey is uncertain, which brings us back to the what now? One thing I would want to say, in my imaginary speech to the Class of 2012, is enjoy the what now? experience. There is a saying in Zen Buddhism, In the beginners mind, there are in nite possibilities. The morning after the Class of 2012 tosses their mortar boards into the sky, the in nite possibilities start manifesting themselves. Many students know what the immediate now may hold college, vo-tech school or even full-time employment. But those of us from the Classes of Long Ago know that those plans are as likely as not going to change by this time next year, and they might change radically. Change is good. Change is pretty much 99 percent of everyones now, but as more and more days, then months and nally years pass between the graduate and graduation day the changes get bigger, but they dont get any less scary. In fact, as we age, I think the opposite is true change gets harder and scarier as we get more set in our ways. The Class of 2012 is about to receive their rst big dose of change. To the graduates I would say enjoy the change, and enjoy the uncertainty of what now? Change is pretty much the only thing you can count on from here on, so you might as well start getting comfortable with uncertainty. Embrace the what now? And give it everything you have. If you have a dream, or plan, or goal, do whatever it takes to make it happen. That way 30 years from now, you dont have to worry about one day spending the rest of your days listening to the evil twin of what now what if ? RANDAL SEYLEREditorGraduates: Embrace the what now?

OUTDOORS Wednesday, May 30, 2012 Page 8www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection FWCThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is considering permanently adding two weeks to the end of the recreational season for bay scallops and is asking the public to take a survey to determine interest in this potential change. For the past two years, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission extended the harvest season for bay scallops to help relieve economic hardships experienced by the communities surrounding the scallop harvesting areas that were affected by the 2010 oil spill. In 2011, FWC scientists determined that the bay scallop population in the harvest area has remained stable even after the extended seasons. The current scallop harvesting season is July 1-Sept. 10. The proposed season would be July 1-Sept. 24. Extending the season could bene t small businesses because September is when shing and tourism usually drop off. Additionally, bay scallops are larger at the end of the season. The survey is available online through June 6 at www.surveymonkey. com/s/ZGB6R7D. Have you ever seen shermen with equipment that obviously was too much horsepower for the sh they were trying to catch? So many shermen do this every day not knowing how much pleasure they are depriving themselves when they do catch a sh. The best example I can think of is when the Spanish mackerel arrive. Fishermen go out and troll with equipment that could pull a hog out of a bog. You dont need a 4/0 reel to catch a 1or 2-pound sh. To add insult to misery, they sh with a rig that has up to 10 hooks on it. If you caught a sh on every hook you would have your limit on three tries. When they do catch a sh, it looks like a rock being skipped across the water. The sh look like a skier being pulled behind the boat. Whats wrong with this picture? Well, for one nobody is enjoying anything. Not you and not the sh. Its sort of like eating an expensive steak in two bites. Downgrade tackle, slow down and enjoy the moment. Spanish mackerel have not been netted for many years and in the interim have grown to weights no one has ever seen. A 5to 7-pound mackerel is not an oddity anymore. These sh can be caught with a small spinning rod or y rod, and the sherman can go home and tell about the big one that didnt get away. Downsize, slow down and enjoy. Nobody enjoys smelling motor fumes. Instead of trolling for Spanish, nd them and cast to them and turn off that stinky loud motor. Believe me, a rst-timer will enjoy the trip much more if he or she isnt getting sick smelling motor fumes, and you will enjoy catching sh with smaller tackle. A sh will overpower you every now and then, but you cant catch them all. Go to you favorite tackle shop and pick out a medium-weight rod and a reel that will accommodate 8to 10-pound test line. After you get used to this type of tackle, you will never go back to those backbreaking rods that were designed to sh in deep water and for much larger sh.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net OH, SNAP(PER)Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation CommissionFriday marks a big day for recreational and charter fishermen alike: the distinctive (in appearance and most certainly in taste) red snapper season begins. The 2012 Gulf of Mexico red snapper recreational harvest season opens Friday in both state and federal waters and runs for 40 days, ending July 10. This years state season, which is the same as the 2012 federal recreational red snapper season in the Gulf of Mexico, was set in May at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission meeting. Florida state waters in the Gulf extend from shore to 9 nautical miles; federal waters extend beyond that line to 200 nautical miles. The Gulf red snapper stock is improving, but the population still needs an increase in the number of older fish for it to be sustainable. Red snapper are estimated to live more than 50 years, but the current stock consists primarily of fish that are only a few years old, according to the FWC. Older fish are the key to rebuilding the population because older female red snapper produce more eggs than younger females. This season will help continue to rebuild the red snapper population so that more red snapper fishing opportunities will be possible in the future. More information about red snapper fishing is available online at MyFWC.com/Fishing by clicking on Saltwater, Recreational Regulations and then Gulf Red Snapper. And while it is open season on snapper, the recreational Atlantic snook and gulf amberjack seasons both end Friday. Snook will reopen for harvest in Atlantic federal, state and inland waters, including Lake Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River, Sept. 1. Snook remains closed for harvest in Gulf of Mexico state waters including Everglades National Park and Monroe County through Aug. 31. A stock assessment on snook will be presented to the FWC Commission at its June 27-28 meeting in West Palm Beach. Greater amberjack will reopen for harvest in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters Aug. 1. State waters in the Atlantic extend from shore to three nautical miles and in the Gulf from shore to nine nautical miles. Seasonal harvest closures protect Floridas valuable snook and greater amberjack populations and help sustain and improve the fishery for the future. Learn more about recreational fishing at MyFWC.com/Fishing by clicking on Saltwater and Recreational Regulations.In with the snapper, out with the amberjack Scallop season might be extended by two weeksFWCAnother delicacy becomes more available beginning Friday, so get your saltine crackers, Tabasco sauce and horseradish ready. Beginning Friday, Apalachicola oysters can be commercially harvested seven days a week throughout the year. Previously, commercial harvest was not allowed on Fridays and Saturdays from June 1 through Aug. 31 and on Saturdays and Sundays from Sept. 1 through Nov. 15. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission approved this change at its February 2012 meeting. This increased harvesting opportunity comes in response to public health management changes made by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in 2010. These changes signi cantly reduced the number of hours available for harvest each day during the warmer months of the year. The seven-day workweek will allow Apalachicola Bay oyster harvesters the ability to make up for time lost harvesting. This action by the FWC was supported by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

By CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com NASCAR fans, sorry about my sudden disappearance last week. I was called to serve jury duty last Monday and missed the deadline for Wednesdays paper. Im back now, and boy, what a busy two weeks it has been in NASCAR. Lets start out at Darlington. Jimmie Johnson claimed the win in the Sprint Cup Series All-Star Race, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won another Nationwide Series that kept him at the top of the point standings and Justin Lofton took home the win in the Camping World Truck Series. Also in Darlington, Kurt Busch seemed to be up to his same old antics again. During an altercation with Ryan Newmans pit crew, NASCAR said Busch was in violation of three rules from the NASCAR rule book: action taken detrimental to stock car racing; reckless driving on pit road during a race; and getting involved in an altercation with another competitor after the race. For these violations, Busch was ned $50,000 and has been put on probation until July 25. Busch was not the only one put on probation after the All-Star Race. Ryan Newmans crew chief, Tony Gibson, was put on probation through June 27 for failing to control his team. Andrew Rueger, a crew member for Newman, also was put on probation for failing to comply with a directive from a NASCAR ofcial and was ned $5,000 for the offense. To top off the weekend, Buschs motor home driver Craig Stickler was suspended through the end of the year and ned $5,000 after interfering with a member of the Fox broadcasting team. Let me know what action you think James Finch should take against Busch and his antics. I will try my best to get your comments to Finch at Phoenix Racing. Should he forgive Busch and let him serve his probation and be done with it, or should Phoenix Racing drop him? Let me know. Now as for this past weekends races in Charlotte, not very exciting. Kasey Kahne took home the win in the Sprint Cup, and Brad Keselowski had a Nationwide win. RESULTS FROM CHARLOTTE History 300 Nationwide Series 1. Brad Keselowski 2. Denny Hamlin 3. Kyle Busch 4.

Chipley posted a boys basketball championship and was runner-up in football. Holmes County made it to Final Fours in both girls basketball and baseball. Union County, however, would have to get the overall nod. The Tigers not only won the 1A baseball crown by defeating Holmes County alst week, they reached the state semi nals in four sports. Union County was the only school to be represented in more than two sports at the state level, the new Rural classi cation instituted in the fall for football and volleyball, then boys and girls basketball and nally softball and baseball. Tigers Athletic Director Ronnie Pruitt said success at his school extended far beyond the playing elds. It carried over in our whole community, our kids, the behavior in hallways, this school year has really own by, Pruitt said. We were fth in the state in academics, the school is an A-plus Its really a whole lot more than I expected. To be a big part of it and see it happen in athletics, academics, behavior and the community ... And in sports like softball, now were having to do JV teams where in the past we had a hard time just getting enough kids out. The new classi cation for smallerenrollment schools eliminated the component where they had to face private schools of similar size, but that could attract standout athletes from large population centers. The recently concluded state baseball tournament provided a prime example of how the playing eld had become tilted favoring the privates. Four public schools decided the Rural 1A title, but in the next three smallest classi cations, 2A, 3A and 4A, every school that reached the Final Four was a private power, as were three of the four in 5A and two of the four in 6A. Holmes County football coach Brad Johnson saw Blue Devils teams gladly accept the challenge of the new guidelines. It meant a lot. Overall were having as successful a sports program as I can remember, Johnson said. I dont know if its directly related, or if we just have a decent run of athletes or what. Its just a good situation. Johnson said Holmes Countys football team, undefeated until facing Chipley in the region title game, set the tone in the fall. As a result, four athletic teams at the school advanced to region title games. It all kind of started with football, it being the rst sport of the year, Johnson said. After our success there was kind of a carryover. There were higher expectations. And I know people in the community were a lot more excited about how things were going. Union County produced running back C.J. Spiller, who went on to star at Clemson and now plays for the Buffalo Bills. Even with an athlete of that caliber, the Tigers had a dif cult time competing on a statewide level until this season. It also should be noted that because of a decreased number of schools in Class 1A, region tournaments consisted of four schools rather than eight. Our last Final Four in football was back when C.J. was here in 2004, Pruitt said. In baseball, we made it in 1976 and lost in the championship game. I dont know if wed ever made it in volleyball, and we had in basketball in 1994. The 2011-12 school year certainly changed all that. And very likely, the future. Florida High School Athletic Association Executive Director Roger Dearing was emphatic in declaring the new classi cation a success in its rst year. I dont think there is any doubt about it when you look at the list of schools that went to district championships, region championships and state semi nals and nals, you had so many schools that had not had that opportunity since the 1980s, Dearing said.

Wednesday, May 30, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 One of the worst things about this time of year is the increase of eas on pets, outside, and, possibly, in homes. Adult eas cause the most problems for pets. In order to become adult eas, the blood-sucking creatures need warm weather, between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and about 70 to 80 percent humidity, said Dr. Alison Diesel, lecturer in dermatology at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Those ideal conditions are exactly what we are experiencing during this time of the year, which is why we generally see more eas coming out in the spring, Diesel said. She added that eas can be present year-round in Texas because there is not usually a true winter. Fleas can cause various problems for pets. Some animals, for example, are allergic to an allergen in the ea saliva causing the animal to have an allergic reaction. This causes the animal to scratch, which could lead to a secondary bacterial skin infection. If there is a large ea problem, anemia could be a potential problem, especially among small animals that do not have large amounts of blood. Fleas can also carry diseases such as tapeworms or Bartonella, and infect both pets and humans. Amanda Friedeck, a veterinary technician at the CVM, said there is no way to completely prevent eas, but a key factor to controlling eas is breaking the life cycle. The best way to control eas is to break the cycle. More eas lay more eggs. The best treatment either kills the adults or kills one of the juvenile stages, Friedeck said. Diesel said the ea life cycle has four phases: the adult eas lay eggs, the eggs hatch into larvae, the larvae turns into pupae, which, eventually, turn into adults. Ideally, targeting several phases of the ea lifecycle is best, particularly when dealing with an infestation. The easiest stage to target is the adult ea since these lives on the pet. The other stages (eggs, larvae, pupae) are present in the environment, Diesel said. Both Diesel and Friedeck said the best way to determine treatment of an animals ea problem is to take them to a veterinarian to discuss the best options and medications. Your pets veterinarian can help recommend the most appropriate product to help prevent eas based on other factors (e.g. other skin conditions, food allergies, etc.) as well as discuss the appropriate way to administer the product (e.g. orally or topically), Diesel said. Diesel suggested using a ea prevention that lasts the entire month and is still effective if the pet gets wet. Using ea prevention every 30 days, or more frequently in some situations, can provide the best protection from eas biting your pet, can kill adult eas rapidly, and can prevent a ea infestation from being established in your pets environment, Diesel said. Diesel and Friedeck agreed that it is important to minimize an animals exposure to eas by avoiding infested areas and pets coming in contact with animals that have eas such as wild animals. There are some things which can be done to minimize exposure to eas: avoid known infested areas, do not allow your pet to come into contact with wild animals or burrows, and protect areas of the house where wild animals may enter to minimize wild animals from establishing residency in the rst place, Diesel said. If eas become a problem inside the house, Diesel and Friedeck suggested vacuuming once a week. Vacuuming is a very good way to rid of eas in the house, but the bag must be thrown away and removed from the house, Friedeck said. She added that if there is a large ea presence, there are in-house treatments and exterminators. There are some inhouse treatments and bombs, but they should only be used in heavily burdened environments, Friedeck said. Diesel suggested focusing on places where the pets spends most of their time inside the house when bombing because that will contain the most concentrated area of eas. Dont forget under beds and furniture, behind curtains, and along hallways connecting rooms when treating the house for eas. Again, it may be best to contact a professional exterminator when there is a large ea burden present, she said. In addition to treating animals and inside of homes, it may be necessary to treat the outside environment. This can be done by spraying areas of the yard that are high in ea population. This includes shaded areas, under trees and bushes, in dog houses, under porches and decks. As with indoor control, when the burden is high, a professional exterminator may be the most help, Diesel said. Diesel said the best strategy against eas is to practice year-round prevention by treating all pets with ea medicine as well as treating inside and outside the home if an infestation is suspected. It is much easier to prevent eas than to treat eas, she said.About pet talkPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

It took four to ve months to complete, said Brooks. We were very fortunate to receive so many donations from the community. We couldnt have done it without them. Brooks explained that it was the Bonifay Cemetery Committee who raised the funds. The Bonifay Cemetery Committee is appointed by the mayor and council members, has about 10 members and has been around for over 50 years, said Brooks. The committee has been very active in keeping the cemetery maintained. They have done very well and have made many improvements. Brooks said that with most of the labor and construction they tried to remain with local people. Weve got a plaque out here in memory of Mrs. Mary Padgett, who was one of the founding members of the Cemetery Committee, said committee member Wilhelmina Parish Belcer. I think its a great addition for those families that have family buried here. Brooks wished to thank all those who contributed to the cause. Not a single penny came from the city, so I can say if it werent for those generous donations this project wouldnt have been possible, said Brooks. The person who gave $5 is just as important as the one who gave thousands. Thank you for all your donations. Brooks said that the reason the Cemetery Committee is able to continue with regular maintenance and beauti cation of the cemetery is mainly in part to donations. Anyone interested in making a donation to Bonifay Cemetery Committee may send it to Bonifay Cemetery Committee, P.O.

By Rev. James L. SnyderI must make a confession. It has taken me a long time to get to the place where I am willing and comfortable to make such an admission. I think some of my friends will be shocked at what I have to say. I think it is time I come clean and confess. Sort of, clean the air, so to speak. Simply put, I used to believe in leprechauns. I know that comes as a shock to all of my friends. At a distance, I look like a very reasonable, well-adjusted person. And the further away the better I look. The same thing goes with my distant relatives. The more distant they are the more I like them. Nobody would suspect that I had such a problem. You cannot tell what burdens people are carrying just by looking at them. It all came to me by way of reading books. When I was a young person, I read many books that had to do with leprechauns, rainbows and pots full of gold at the end of those rainbows. I was young and nave at the time and believed everything I read. Once while my father was sleeping on the couch I ask him if he believed in leprechauns and he grunted in such a way that I took it to mean that he also believed in them. If you cannot trust your father while he is sleeping, who in the world can you trust? Many a day I spent in the woods at the end of our property looking for leprechauns. I can testify that they are rather elusive creatures but several times, I almost caught one. They always were just a few seconds quicker than I was. I looked where I thought they were but they were nowhere to be found. Do not get me wrong here. I was never frustrated in my fruitless search of leprechauns. There is no better way to spend a day in the woods than searching for the elusive leprechaun. I began to think what I would do if I actually caught one. Then what would I do in the woods? It is always better to seek and not nd than to nd something and have to quit the seeking. I think it is something like shermen. Few shermen really sh for sh. They sh so they can go home and brag about the one that got away. It is hard to brag about the sh you caught and then there is the messy job of cleaning those sh. No, it is better to have shed and not caught anything to have shed and caught something that you have to take home and clean. Such was my thoughts concerning my leprechaun pursuit. Many an evening I entertained my parents with the exciting exploits of searching and almost catching a leprechaun today. I am sure they got tired of hearing, but I never tired of telling. Then the time came when I really had to face the facts. After almost a decade of diligently searching for leprechauns, I had to conclude that they were simply a gment of my imagination. And you know what happens to gs if you keep them around for a long time. I had to realize there were no such creatures as leprechauns. I must confess that it was a rather sad day for me. It was the beginning of many sad days like this. For instance, the day I realized Santa Claus was not real. Every year I diligently prepared my Christmas list starting out with, Dear Ole Santa, and dictated my list of Christmas hopefuls. Often I would sit on his lap and carefully read my list to him. The last time I did this my wife made me get off his lap. Something about being too big or something like that. To my recollection, he never made good on any of those requests. Jolly old soul? Phooey! Then there was the Easter Bunny. This had me for quite a while. After all, I love the chocolate Easter bunnies he brought me along with the rest of the candy. Unlike Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny was very generous in dousing me with candy galore. I truly hated putting the Easter Bunny away. Probably the last one I will mention would be when a politician says, I feel your pain. At rst, I thought this was a genuine concern for my state of affairs. When I found out he was just playing me in his political theater I wanted him to feel some more of my pain. Pondering this I begin to realize that many things that I have believed in turned out not to be true. It is quite disconcerting when something you have believed in for a long time turns out to be phony. While I am confessing here, I must confess that only one thing has turned out not to be disappointing. That one thing has been the Bible. It has been the only thing that has not let me down in life. I take great comfort in Psalms 119:105, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Many things disappoint me and I have given them up. I start each day with the only thing that will never let me down, that is the Word of God. I believe the Bible. The Rev. James L.

While it is tempting to believe that merely reading the Bible can transport us back to the ancient civilizations of the near East, that is surely nave. Understanding distant civilizations requires much more than understanding what those civilizations lacked (e.g., cars, electricity, modern plumbing, etc.). It also requires that we have a positive understanding of their language and culture, including the pattern of rituals and manners which pervaded their culture. Much of the Bible is strange to us because we simply do not understand the culture. In order to imagine, or re-imagine the past, it is necessary to thoroughly immerse yourself in the culture. Besides simply reading the Bible, we should engage in historical studies to supplement our understanding, and maybe even attempt to learn some Hebrew or Greek.

Most religions place a high emphasis upon charity, as do many secular organizations. Even when people have differences of opinion on other points, theyll generally agree that helping others, both globally and locally, is a good idea. Naturally, people have different motivations for practicing acts of charity. Sometimes, theyre interested in raising awareness about circumstances that affect themselves or a loved one. For instance, I know someone whose child suffers from a certain disease, and as a result, became active with an organization dedicated to ghting that illness. Others might respond to stories of disasters, both at home and abroad. Even people who dont usually make regular charitable contributions will often donate after hearing news of events such as the earthquakes in Haiti, tornadoes and hurricanes in the U.S., and tsunamis in Asia. And then there are some people who like to do good while looking good. It may seem super cial to raise money for charity while simultaneously promoting your own self-interests, but some people do just that. Its nothing new. In the Bible, Jesus mentions people who use almsgiving as a means of drawing attention to themselves. He notes in Matthew 6:2 that in doing so, theyve already received their reward. For them, satisfying their own vanity is the primary goal. Even at that, it doesnt mean that their charity is worthless. When I was young, I knew a woman who was quite open about wanting to give to a certain charity because she hoped to get her name engraved on a big, shiny plaque. Someone made a remark behind her back about how awful and shallow she was, but someone from the charity remarked, Who cares why shes giving? Were just happy that shes giving at all. And its true. Motives are between you and your conscience. If youre giving because you want your name up in lights, there are better reasons to give, but your contribution can be used for good, nonetheless. A homeless person eating the food that your money purchased isnt going to care what prompted you to make that donation. Regardless of why youre giving, the important thing is that youre doing it. Eventually, a person might be able to work out his or her ego issues and nd a more sel ess motive for charity, but in the meantime, if getting a building named after you is what it takes to get you to pry your wallet open, so be it. In my many years of interviewing practitioners of different religions, Ive only encountered one group that was atly against charity. It was an independent Christian church that felt charity was useless because of John 12:8, in which Jesus says, the poor you will always have with you. They interpreted it to mean that since the poor were always intended to be part of the human population, giving them charity is not only senseless, but a direct violation of Gods will. However, almost every other group Ive dealt with engages in some kind of charitable action. Even religious groups that are too small to make much of an impact by themselves will often band together with larger groups to help the disadvantaged. Charity can be found in small gestures as well as large ones. You dont have to provide meals for a thousand people at once or pay for an entire wing of a hospital. Nobodys expecting you to single-handedly cure cancer or restore sight to the blind. Even if you qualify as a recipient of charity yourself, you can still help others. Acts of kindness are encouragement are free. I feel that reassurance and support qualify as acts of charity. There are times when a kind word can be worth more than gold. There are people whove approached me in moments of sorrow, frustration or despair who changed my life. They didnt give me money. They gave me hope. Think of how many times a day a small child hears the word no. Maybe you can be the rst person of the day to smile kindly and say yes. Do you know someone whos struggling to learn a new skill? You dont have to be a professor to help. Teaching others can be quite rewarding. You can take groceries to a housebound person, or make sure that a senior whos living alone is getting enough to eat. Justice is an act of charity, too. Its important to stand up for what is right, even if other people ridicule you for it. Show your concern for others by refusing to idly stand by while theyre being bullied or harassed. If nothing else, simply be more encouraging than discouraging. Sometimes, people describe their spirituality by using terms that involve light. They saw the light, are walking in the light, or are trying to become enlightened. Its a tting image. As the old saying goes, A single candle can illuminate an entire room. Its important to make life better in both the spiritual and physical realms. Thats why its crucial to bring light to others on a regular basis. When you see the darkness of injustice, ignorance, fear, discrimination, poverty or unkindness, your light, even if small, may be suf ciently bright for others to nd their way to a better life. The childrens song, This Little Light of Mine has more meaning than most people realize. We honor Gods creations by loving them. Anyone who routinely belittles others, crushes the wills of children, denies help to the elderly, mistreats their employees or co-workers, engages in domestic abuse, practices bigotry or otherwise slams the door in the faces of their fellow humans, is not honoring God. Such a person is essentially saying that Gods creations are garbage, and hence, not deserving of love. Anyone who claims to care about God will practice charity toward the beings that hes made. If Gods creations are worth his time and effort, how can they not be worth a few moments of ours, as well? Shannon Seyler is a freelance writer and owner/publisher of the Web site www.obitcity.com.
