By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com ESTO The Esto Fire Department, Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce and the re marshal are investigating two res that occurred in Esto recently. According to Esto Fire Chief Charles Corcoran, the rst re happened at about midnight June 1 in a vacant building at 1024 State 79 in Esto. Corcoran said in light of the evidence found at the scene, he was con dent it was a case of arson. First of all, its a vacant building, Corcoran said. That means that the building was unoccupied and the electricity and other utilities had been turned off to the building. This eliminates the possibility that it was caused by faulty wiring, etc. Corcoran said with further investigation, it was determined someone had been living in the vacant building recently. He said the res location led to a determination of arson. It couldnt have been a cooking re because its in the back of the area, where its cluttered and away from the area where he was eating, Corcoran said. You can tell that the re was set deliberately. He said the re was small and took very little water and manpower to put out. The second re occurred at 9:11 p.m. June 2 at Esto Assembly of God Church, which has not been utilized since January. This re was much bigger, utilizing the services of Pittman, Hartford, Graceville, Bonifay and Esto re departments until 3:30 the next morning. We used over 5,000 gallons of water and ve re departments on scene, Corcoran said. Bonifay stretched the line and protected the surrounding houses, Graceville stretched and operated the lines into the building, and we had Pittman and Hartford as backup. Corcoran said without a re hydrant to draw water from, the re departments have to use their tankers, and once one was empty another would take their place while the other lled back up. The process repeated itself until the re was out. The re could have easily spread to the surrounding houses due to the dry conditions, and there was a wooden fence so close to the church, Corcoran said. We had West Florida Electric out there in about 10 minutes to kill the power and secure the area from electrical issues. This was a well-contained re. Corcoran said both res are under investigation. BOCC approves Esto Dollar General By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners approved of a small-scale amendment to allow Dollar General Corporation to build a Dollar General in Esto during their regularly scheduled meeting May 29. The board held a public hearing to consider Amendment 12S1, to change the land-use classi cation of a 2.7-acre parcel of property in Esto from residential low density to commercial use so Dollar General Corporation could start construction of its new store. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said the Holmes County Planning Commission had given approval and that Holmes County Building Inspector Roger Williams was aware of the project as well. I think it would be an asset to the community, planning commission Chairman Carlton Treadwell said during their May 15 meeting, when they approved the request to BOCC. Our elderly have to travel so far just for groceries and supplies. It would be nice to have something close. Dollar General Corporation agent and developer Buddy Page was present during the planning commissions meeting and said the company would need 10 to 15 employees to be hired and that construction would start as soon as possible. In other news, Goodman told the board a settlement agreement of $15,000 had been offered in the Holmes County v. Wade Gilbert LLC lawsuit regarding the Shoo Fly Bridge. Holmes County led a lawsuit against Wade Gilbert LLC when Shoo Fly Bridge collapsed under the weight of a dump truck in January 2009. See BOCC A3 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY A recent incident left the Bonifay City Council resolved to reinforce an ordinance that was put into place in 1987. During the councils regular June meeting on Monday, council member Richard Woodham said there had been a building housing three businesses that were running off one water meter, and a problem arose when one of those businesses refused to pay their portion of the bill. He looked into the ordinances and found Ordinance 238, stating that no owner, business entity, person or corporation shall divide any city lot or city property for use by another business entity, person or corporation unless a meter is installed for each area divided; and further no owner, business, entity, person or corporation shall divide any house, residence, business or structure of any nature unless a separate meter is provided for each division. City Clerk Jeri Gibson said it had not been an issue until now because all entities that have been sharing the meter have been paying individually, and the city has seen no loss in revenue because of it. Woodham asked whether the city could shut off the water to those three businesses if one doesnt pay. City Attorney Lucas Taylor said that is what the city must do with any unpaid water bill. Eventually someone will pay, Taylor said. One business owner, however, was exempt from this obligation during the course of the meeting. Tabitha Wichkowski of Fish Reality is in the same predicament with a shared meter; however, she had came before the council to request exemption from paying water and sewer. Our of ce doesnt have water or sewer, Wichkowski said. She said there are no sinks, toilets or running water of any kind in her of ce, yet she had been sharBonifay to enforce meter ordinance See METER A2 HOLMES COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISER Holmes County High School held its graduation ceremony for 102 seniors on June 5 at Memorial Field.

Local Wednesday, June 13, 2012 ing the bill with her neighbor for quite some time. It doesnt make sense to hook up a separate meter to a system that doesnt exist, Woodham said. She shouldnt have to pay for something she doesnt even have. The council approved of waiving her water and sewer expenses. The council agreed to Woodhams request to look into all of the businesses and residences that are in similar situations to see if anyone is slipping by and not paying the city for sewer and water. City Engineer Amir Zafar of Hatch Mott MacDonald reported that the city would have to make an adjustment to the new wastewater sewer plant because of a new Florida building code change. When we put the item to bid, the building only had to withstand up to 110 mph winds, Zafar said. Now, with the new building code, the building will have to stand up to a minimal of 130 mph winds. Zafar said this actually would be a simple task, because they had leeway in their contract agreement with M&W Construction Company just in case something like this should occur mid-project. Because of contingency funds, they will be able to pay the extra $11,355, raising the cost from $89,900 to $101,255, to reinforce the building. This just means were going to have an even stronger building, Zafar said. We just have to change the contract amount, add the required mph wind resistance and send it to United States Department of Agriculture for approval. The council approved of the change of contract amount pending USDA approval. Zafar also told the council he had compiled a letter in response to the Florida Department of Environmental Protections letter stating that the city was in violation because of levels of high nitrogen and unionized ammonia in the water. Basically, the letter says that we were in the process of building our new wastewater facility as well as our in ltration and in ow project before the letter was issued, and that once these projects are completed, we should have the ltering system we need to keep our water above and beyond current drinking water standards, Zafar said. Council member Roger Brooks presented the council with the nal rough draft of what the new city welcome signs would look like. Weve been working on this project for quite some time because the city is in desperate need of welcome signs, Brooks said. Right now were looking at a total of $5,000 to build both signs; however, it will be a lot cheaper if we nd out we can use inmate labor to build them. Brooks said he had several sources, such as the Holmes County Tourist Development Council and the Bonifay Kiwanis Club, that might be willing to chip in some funding if the city approves to pay half. One sign would be located near Interstate 10, and the other would replace the sign on U.S. 90. The council approved of paying for half for the new signs, which at the most would be $2,500. Mayor Lawrence Cloud informed the council there was an entity that wanted to come in and build an assisted living facility on St. Johns Road where the Hidden Lakes trailer park once was. Julia Bullington, coordinator for the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce, said the company wanted to eventually build a 60-room assisted living facility with an adult day care center. They want to start with 40 rooms rst and work their way up to 60 rooms, Bullington said. They say it will take eight to 10 months to complete and will create 10 to 15 jobs here in Bonifay. All they need is letters of support from all the local agencies. Bullington also said the company wasnt able to get a USDA grant, but that they were applying for a USDA loan. It was the loan that required letters of support from the local agencies.

Local Wednesday, June 13, 2012 City of Bonifay 2011 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report of the City of Bonifay Were pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. With 4 water wells located throughout the city, the City of Bonifay draws an average of 1 million gallons per day from the Upper Floridan Aquifer. Due to the excellent quality of this groundwater source, disinfection through chlorination is the only treatment process required to produce an aesthetically pleasing product to the community. (850) 547-2701, between the hours of 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 6:30 pm at City Hall, located at 301 N. Etheridge St. The City of Bonifay routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regula tions. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2011. Data obtained before January 1, 2011, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. In 2011 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was con ducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells There are 16 potential sources of fay Public Works Department at (850) 547-2701. Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or ex pected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR) The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compli ance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the stage 2 DBPR. ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum residual disinfection level goal or MRDLG The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can, also, come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water pro vided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Bonifay is responsible for provid ing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryp tosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). We at the City of Bonifay would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A3 The board approved of the settlement agreement of $15,000. The board also held the rst reading a public hear ing and rst reading to con sider the adoption of culvert Ordinance 12-01. Commissioner Kenneth Williams had brought his concerns about purchasing pipes for residents and col lecting sales tax to the board during an April 24 meeting. He said when a pipe needed to be replaced in someones driveway, for example, the county would receive money from the resident to purchase a pipe at county rates and in turn the county retained the sales tax. I dont think we should be in the pipe-buying busi ness and collecting sales tax, Williams said. We should make them purchase the pipes, and well even give them the name and number of the place we buy ours if they want it. The board approved of Williams suggestion. On the same token, I think if a person buys a pipe and were maintaining it, then they should buy the pipe and the county put it in with no charge, Williams said. The board approved modifying the ordinance so that if someone has a pipe put in and if the pipe corrodes or rusts, then the person will pay for the pipe but the county will waive the permit and installation fees. The board also discussed the EMS supervisor posi tion since Jerome Szczekot announced his retirement. After much discussion, the board approved the promo tion of Shay McCormick to the position with a vote of 4-1, with Commissioner Jim King voting no. County Engineer Cliff Knauer gave an update on the Small County Road As sistance Program, suggest ing that the board submit County Road 181 from Coun ty Road 185 to the Walton County Line. After some dis cussion, the board approved of Knauers suggestion. The board also approved of signing the Standard Memorandum of Agree ment for Limited Access to Florida Data, an agreement with the Florida Depart ment of Children and Family Services for access to Med icaid-related information. The board approved of the Tourist Development Council Board recommen dations to have Aaron Miller replace Alicia Gonsalves and Stephanie Williams re place Commissioner Phillip Music on the TDC Board. The board also approved the Holmes County Develop ment Commissions recom mendation that Nolan Bak er, Dewey Crutcheld and Sandy Spear replace Jeffery Johnson and Roger White replace Gary Deal on the development commission. Goodman presented the board with a land sale item from the Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church to purchase a piece of land that has been leased by the church and includes an adjoining parcel of land owned by the county that had inadvertently been occupied by church grave sites. Goodman also told the board the church already had paid to have a survey done. The board approved Goodmans recommenda tion that he draw up a deed and a contact to sale the property to the church for $1,000. Emergency Manage ment Director Wanda Staf ford presented the board with the Emergency Op erations Center vehicle pur chase item. Stafford said Williams had asked her to see if it were possible for the board to use her departments 2006 diesel Ford truck for the Parks and Recreation Department and for her to use Emergency Manage ment grant funds to pur chase another vehicle. She said the state had agreed to accept $10,000 from the board for the truck and that those funds would be used toward the purchase of a 2013 Chevy Tahoe. The board approved Staffords requests. Holmes County 911 Director Clint Erickson updated the board on the progress of the 911 Dispatch ofce location discussions. Space became an issue with the 911 Dispatch when a grant gave the department $300,000 worth of new and additional equipment. The new equipment had to be in place and opera tional by June 2013, but time was of the essence as the old equipments warranty was running out. The new equipment had to be stored temporarily. The options were nar rowed down to two possi bilities: expand the centers space or move to the new EOC. Bonifay is allowing dis patch to use one of their buildings rent-free and agreed to allow them to ex pand as long as dispatch as sumes all of the expenses.

Youll never miss your water until the well runs dry are the words to an old country yodeling tune. It kind of expresses the way many of us felt when Simbos family restaurant closed in December last year. We had just taken for granted that they would be there for club meetings, family reunions, class or school reunions or just Sunday after-church dinner. Their closing left us scrambling for a place to hold such gatherings. So, it was with great relief that we learned the business that has operated in the same location for 35 years was being rejuvenated and opening as Scotts Restaurant. Scott Thompson, who came to live in Bonifay in the ninth grade with his parents Cliff and Peggy Thompson and younger sister, the late Jennifer Thompson, has reopened the business, on State 79 between downtown Bonifay and Interstate 10. After Scott graduated from Holmes County High in 1991, Chipola Junior College and The University of West Florida, he continued to work in the food service industry, which had helped support him through college. He worked for Ruby Tuesday in every position from bus boy up to managing partner. He opened the rst Ruby Tuesday in Enterprise, Ala. He did a stint with OCharleys, Cracker Barrel and Applebees. Seeing the need to be closer to his parents as they approach senior adult status, Scott rst opened the Townhouse in downtown Bonifay, but seizing the opportunity to expand, he leased Simbos and is continuing with the traditional family style restaurant provided there with some new innovations and specialties. Simbos Restaurant started in 1975 on U.S. 90 East, where Gene and Betty Sims operated a food establishment for a couple of years. I had always thought the name Simbo came from Genes grandfathers name, Jimbo Sims. However, in talking to Betty Sims, she said that Simbo was the nickname for their oldest son, Mark. It was a name that now identies a landmark. As Interstate 10 was being constructed, the Sims family saw an opportunity to expand their business, and around 1976, they opened the restaurant and the truck stop in partnership with brother Jimmy and wife Myrt. Brother Archie Van and his late wife Jean were also involved in the business with Archie Van serving as head chef and grill master. They have always specialized in family style meals, and I recall my dad, who was known all about this area as the place to go for fresh peas and other produce, used to sell them fresh peas. Another family member, Mrs Anna Sims, helped shell the peas and prepare other fresh produce. The south end of Bonifay was totally undeveloped when the Sims family moved out toward the interstate. Soon after that move, Hightowers garage was built, followed by the Tivoli Inn and Jernigan Beach, a drive-in restaurant about where the donut shop, Hungry Howies, Vos and Subway are located. Blitchs restaurant located rst on the Jernigan property but later moved to the Jehovahs Witness building. Los Rancheros now occupies that location. Through the years, the Sims family have been very much a part of the community and maintained this important gathering place. Though the business at times was leased to other interests, it kept returning to the Sims family. Most recently, it was operated by second and third generation family members. The refurbished interior, the expanded menu and the addition of oor manager Russell McNeal will make your dining experience a pleasant one. We welcome Scott back home and are glad to know that Bonifay has a good place for groups to meet and enjoy good food and friendly service at the same time. The 107th session of the Brock Reunion will be held on Saturday, June 16, at the Agriculture Center, located on U. S. 90 east of Bonifay. The family get-to-gather is set for high noon when all the covered dishes will be uncovered and the bountiful spread placed on the table for the hundreds of expected kinsmen to enjoy. The long running family reunion was started in May 1905. It was held in celebration of the birthday of Thomas Jefferson Brock, who was born May 1, 1856, in Washington County. The rst child born to the honoree and his wife, Nancy Jane Yates Brock, was their daughter Annie Virginia (Jenny) Brock Anderson, who arrived on her fathers 19th birthday, May 1, 1875. Seven additional daughters and three sons were later born to this couple. The present day Brock Reunion was rst known as Pa Brocks Birthday Dinner and was rst held at the oldest daughters home. It then was held at the patriarchs home near Hinson Cross Roads for a number of years before the meeting place was changed to Brackin School. From there, it found a home at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church for many years before moving to the present location. For several years, the Prattler has written articles the week prior to the Brock Reunion, honoring some special member of the family. During the past year, Don McKinnon, a descendant of the Brock clan, sent a picture to me, reportedly taken at the Brock gathering in 1929. Shown prominently in the center of that photograph is obviously cousin Millard Anderson, the oldest child of the oldest daughter, Jenny and husband, James Henry (Little Jim) Anderson, the family being spotlighted in this years column. Millard appears to be dressed out in his U. S. Army Uniform, which he wore proudly as a soldier in combat during World War I, while serving in France. He was honorably discharged in 1918, which means the uniform was stored away for 11 years before this picture. The writer vividly recalls that the four main people recognized at the annual Brock assembly was Millard, as the oldest grandson and Annie Lee Brock Williams, daughter of James Willie (Will) Brock and wife, Loanva Amalee Henderson Brock, as the oldest granddaughter. The youngest grandson was Conrad (Connie Bush) son of Arkie Brock Bush and husband, Ward Bush, while Myrtle Harrell Davis, daughter of O.D. Brock Harrell and husband, W. Alto Harrell held the title as the youngest granddaughter. Myrtle, is one of the six surviving granddaughters of Tom Brock, with all the grandsons deceased. In addition to having this historic photograph accompany todays Prattle, it is my plan to have it at the upcoming reunion, where, hopefully, someone can identify more of the people. In addition to Millard, Jim and Jenny Anderson had Rufus, Sanders Emerson, Noma Eliza, Agustus Douglas, Oma, Willie, Mattie Lou and James Thomas. According to granddaughter, Virgina Anderson Hewett, her grandfather always told people that he lived way down on Fowl Pond, with a second unusual landmark, Devils Garden, also being located near the home. The offspring of these pioneers lived in close proximity to the home where they were reared. After marriage, the children brought many grandchildren into the family. The Andersons supported the Brock Reunion, as did the other children of Tom and Jane Brock. Jim Andersons trademark dish for the spread of food at lunchtime was roasted goat!

Letter to the EDITOR To the editor: After the June 5 planning commission meeting, a couple of residents shared your article from the May 9, 2012, Opinions section of the paper titled Awareness is a citizens responsibility with some attendees and myself. I must say I was quite disappointed and quite frankly extremely offended by what I read. Is it not just a little hypocritical to call the concerned citizens of the county who take the time and gas money to attend the meetings lazy? You yourself did not attend last nights meeting, so would it be fair for the citizens or myself to assume it was because you were too lazy? Just as you are entitled to your opinion, the residents, some lifelong, are also entitled to theirs. I would suggest you listen to the audio of the May 1, 2012, planning commission meeting. A resident rightfully requested that the agenda of the meetings be posted 7 to 10 days prior to the meeting on the county website and newspapers. This is not the rst time this request has been made. The lazy citizens have asked for this so they have the time to compile pertinent information and come prepared to the meeting. Your comment about the lady who said she didnt read the paper was far from accurate. I myself had addressed the board requesting they consider an amendment to notify all property owners by mail if a land-use change would affect their property. While speaking, I stated the fact that the newspapers only reach 18% of this countys population. To prove a point, Commissioner Kelley directed a question to the next speaker asking her how she heard about the meeting and the land-use change. Her response was word of mouth at the Legends and Lore Festival. The woman then stated she did not get the paper nor does she read the paper. She did not say she was too lazy to read the paper. The gentleman who said he had a job and kids simply stated he should not have to attend meetings every month and keep looking over his shoulder to protect his property rights. Some folks like city life, some folks like beach life and the majority in attendance that evening prefer the rural, quiet, private country life. Your arrogance is quite apparent in your article. As for the restrictions so many were opposed to, all property owners and residents are entitled to their right to oppose new restrictions that would result in changing their way of life and livelihood. Several of us purchased our properties where we did so we could raise farm animals and enjoy our quiet country way of life. To restrict residents of an agriculture county to owning only 12 chickens, that, Mr. Seyler, is what is laughable. To impose a land use allowing the subdivision this beautiful county into 1 acre lots, that, Mr. Seyler, is laughable. To assume that all residents can afford computers and Internet service, that is laughable. To suggest that the residents of the rural communities that wish to keep their way of life the way it is are lazy, that is laughable. To report to your readers that anyone speaking in favor of the restrictions would have been in danger, well, Mr. Seyler, that was extremely rude and unjustied. Not to mention, not only laughable but outright hysterical. Not one resident that evening was threatening or even considering it. In closing, may I just say, this lazy resident will continue to attend meetings and ask questions. I will continue to ght for my property rights and will not back down from a few greedy individuals who want to over develop this county while stufng their pockets at the expense of other property owners rights. So keep on laughing, Mr. Seyler. While I do agree that from time to time a citizen will act unruly or even rude, I still hold rm my belief that all are entitled to speak at meetings. As I am sure you know, many people have a fear of public speaking. I would not want any citizen of this county to not address the planning commission or county commission for fear of being ridiculed by their neighbors or journalists of this ne community. Although I disagree, I respect your opinion of some of the residents who spoke at the May 1 meeting. I can only hope the article will not deter the citizens of this county from attending and speaking at public hearings and meetings.

Local Wednesday, June 13, 2012 Several issues arose from remaining in their current building, which included air-conditioning, time, money and labor to expand. Another issue was that the rst instillation of the new equipment was free, but if they had to move the equipment in the next ve years, it would cost them $20,000 to move. Erickson said Bonifay had sent a letter stating that additional footage could be added to the building dispatch was occupying to accommodate the additional equipment, and the estimated expense to the board would be $1,000. Erickson also said another expense to consider would be $1,800 to move the communications equipment from the re bay area, and that expense was not within the 911 Department budget. The board agreed to let Goodman and King meet with the City of Bonifay to prepare a proposal for the boards consideration and for Erickson to have a list of all the costs involved with the project to be given to Goodman. Melinda Pollock of CDG Engineers updated the board on the site testing at the Road Department Shop and informed the board that the Department of Environmental Protection had sent a proposal for site testing and an appointment for a teleconference. She said the work should begin in July. Commissioner Monty Merchant told the board his districts grader was broken and requested to lease a machine. With much discussion, the board found that there are other districts with graders in need of repairs and discussed the possibility of purchasing three new graders and trade-in values for repaired versus non-repaired graders. The board approved of allowing Merchant to lease a grader and to x the three graders with the intention of getting rid of them. Merchant also told the board Otis Lane Bridge had been inspected and was in need of repairs and that repairing it would cost $11,000 if they wanted to go with lumber or $5,000 for three 20-foot sections of plastic culvert pipes. The board approved purchasing the culvert pipes to repair the bridge. ter of support from the city, because it wasnt tying the city into any obligations and it had the potential to create more local jobs. Well see if theyre approved of the loan, and then we will discuss with them about the local ordinances and impact fees required for this project, Cloud said. The council approved of bidding out their surplus automobiles to the highest bidder, which was PC Buyers for $3,381. The council also approved of Public Works Director Jack Marells request to earmark some of that money to purchase a new lift for the city mechanic. Hes got nothing to lift our equipment with so he can work on it, and the one they do have is so shaky its dangerous, Marell said. Local resident Steve Andrew requested that he use the basketball court at Veterans Park to hold a basketball tournament in June and July to raise money for a charitable cause. He also requested that three of the lights be xed at the court, a low-hanging branch be cut and that one of the goals be repaired. Im all for it, Woodham said. Its for a good cause after all. Marell said he would go out with Andrew to the court and see what needs to be done. Local residents Luther Curry and Michell Coe requested assistance about people bringing their dogs into the local parks. The sign clearly said that there were no dogs allowed in the park, and yet this woman came in with her pit bull and tied him to a fence, Curry said. Police Chief Chris Wells presented Taylor with an old dog ordinance. Well check out this old ordinance and see if we can adopt it and give it some teeth, Cloud said.

The audit revealed that this year the town would do ne, with the worstcase scenario being that they break even at the end of the year. However, with the recent loss of their ten ant at the old shirt factory, they could nd themselves in a decit in the upcoming year. Its about that time we had an increase anyway, said Mayor Sheena Houg land. It was a general rule that we should increase the utility rates by two percent every two years. The council agreed to look into the amount of the upcoming increase, looking for a percentage that would both help the town and be fair to the residents. The council also agreed to look into ways to better rent out the building again, with one possibility being to lower the rent. Town Attorney Lyndia Spears informed the coun cil that she had talked with the land owners son in regards to the agriculture building owned by the Hol mes County School District and the land found to be owned by someone else. The town council had been leasing the building from the school district for some time and was inter ested in renting the build ing out. The school district didnt want to be tied into any liability so they did a quick claim deed on the building and offered it to the town. I told them we didnt want to get into a long lengthy battle for the prop erty so we declined, said Spears. After speaking with the son Ive found that the state has seized the property and though he still retains it he has been forced to place the property on market at fair market value. He wanted to give the property to the town, but he was forced to put it on the market. Council member John Harrison informed the council that holes in Mag nolia Road and Govern ment Street would need to be lled. The re department reported ve calls last month and has already received six calls for this month. Also reported was the most resent Boot Drive fundraiser, which was said to have been fairly unsuc cessful and will the planed for a later date to help raise funds for the volunteer re department.

Local Wednesday, June 13, 2012 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, says rural northwest Florida feels like coming home. I feel like I won the redistricting lottery, said Gaetz, 64, a Republican who will return to Tallahassee as the senate president in November. I feel like I have been blessed with the opportunity to represent communities like the one I grew up in. Gaetz was in Washington County on June 5 for a campaign fundraiser. The senator represents District 4, will be the senator for Holmes, Washington and Jackson counties along with Bay and Walton and most of Okaloosa counties once the redistricting takes effect on July 1. He previously represented parts of Bay, Escambia, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, and Walton counties, but now he will be representing more rural, less affluent regions, which he says suits him just fine. I grew up in North Dakota in a small community like Chipley, so for me, this is like being at home. Gaetz says he shepherded the redistricting effort through the senate. Now that the redistricting maps have been approved by both the Supreme Court and the Justice Department, it seems that Gaetz can safely start calling Washington and Holmes counties home turf. Gaetz said he started working at age 11 in a weekly newspaper, where he eventually worked his way up to being editor. His skills he learned as a youth led to his career in the health care field. It was the ability to write, take photos and layout a page that got me hired, he said. He went to work at a Wisconsin health care facility as a community development coordinator and eventually became the No. 2 person in the company. Later, he relocated to Jacksonville, Fla., as a hospital administrator. People in rural counties work for a living, Gaetz said. I know what that is like. Ive always worked for a living. Here people are involved in their work, their small businesses and their communities. Unlike Destin or other coastal communities, where affluent people retire along the beach, families in the rural Florida communities are still struggling to make it dayto-day, and issues such as education and economic development are real concerns. If you talked about an 80-job business coming in to Tallahassee or south Florida, no one would get very excited, Gaetz said. But in our communities, an 80-job business is a very big deal. Gaetz said other parts of the state get more attention from the Department of Economic Development, but the rural communities need just as much attention. Due to his 30-year career in health care, Gaetz said he is passionate about protecting the small hospitals. You have to have access to health care, or your community just dries up and blows away. Health care is an essential ingredient for a community. One form of economic development Gaetz does not support is gambling such as the proposed slot machines at Ebro. I dont believe in expanding the economy with gambling, Gaetz said. I think often the promises are never quite fulfilled, but the negative aspects usually do occur. I would rather do the hard work of diversifying the economy than relying on gambling. Another concern affecting northwest Florida is the Citizens Property Insurance policies which are subsidized by all Florida policyholders, not only Citizens customers, Gaetz said. To that end, Gaetz is one of 25 legislators who recently signed a letter to interim president of Citizens, Tom Grady, endorsing a recommendation of the Citizens board to increase property insurance rates for new customers. Gaetz is also passionate about career education, and said he was one of only three senators to vote against House Bill 7129, which Gov. Rick Scott eventually vetoed. House Bill 7129 was written to give universities the power to seek unlimited tuition increases from their board of trustees and the state Board of Governors, especially University of Florida and Florida State University. I spent the afternoon at Chipola College, Gaetz said, and did you know that 100 percent of their students receiving bachelor degrees this year have jobs? That is because they are training people in fields that are in demand in the economy. He said that by comparison, last year 50 percent of college graduates in the U.S. were either unemployed or underemployed after graduation. I have a degree in religion and political science, Gaetz said. Nobody is going to pay me to talk about the Synoptic Gospels. Instead, it was the skills he learned working in the newspaper that led to his ultimate career in health care. Gaetz said an unnamed college president recently told him that degrees such as psychology are the bread and butter of the university system. Thats where they make their money, they can put students in big lecture halls. But he said only 15 percent of all psychology graduates are working in the field of psychology. Gaetz said he wanted to see a system created in which schools are rewarded for teaching skills that lead to employment. It is vital to our economy. Gaetz also noted that there is a misconception that technical education is less challenging than academic studies, a misconception he challenged while serving as superintendent of the Okaloosa School District. We started offering technical education, and what we found out was these kids who werent responding to chalk board education were just bored. Once they had something to learn that excited them, they also learned the math and writing skills.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012 OUTDOORS Page A8 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission As night falls over North Florida, a band of 66 men and women split into small groups to nd bats in damp, mosquito-rich places in the Panhandle, like Apalachicola National Forest, Joe Budd Wildlife Management Area and St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. To ensnare the bats, biologists hoist almost invisible mist nets as tall as trees. They wait for hours in the dark. They have equipment out on portable tables, so they can quickly log in any bats they capture. The bats will be identi ed, measured and weighed, and a sample of guano will be collected before they are let go. Its best to think like a bat when scouting for bats, said Melissa Tucker, wildlife biologist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Bats are not evenly distributed across the landscape. Some areas are more important for foraging and roosting, and were still guring those things out, she said. Sites over water or with features such as re lines or forest trails that funnel ying bats into the nets are usually good choices. The total of bats captured over three nights: 246. It was a lot of bats. We were really pleased about the number and the diversity. Finding eight species was exciting to us, Tucker said. It was an amount of information about bat species in north Florida that our staff couldnt have gathered on our own or in such a short amount of time. The Bat Blitz was conducted for three nights in late May as biologists from the FWC and the University of Florida joined forces with Apalachicola National Forest staff, as well as students and volunteers from throughout the southeast United States and as far away as Oklahoma, Kentucky and Ohio. The blitz, sponsored by the Florida Bat Working Group in conjunction with the Southeastern Bat Diversity Network, was held for the rst time in Florida. How are bats doing in Florida? In general, we have a sense in Florida that our common species of bats are probably doing OK, said Tucker, acknowledging, We do not have a lot of baseline information to draw from. The deadly white-nose syndrome that has decimated many cave-roosting bat species throughout the eastern United States has not been detected in Florida. The disease is caused by a fungus found in cold caves and affects bats as they hibernate. With Floridas relatively warm winters, few bats hibernate here, so there is hope bats in the state wont experience its devastating effects. Still, to prevent a potential spread of the fungus, Bat Blitz biologists were extremely careful about decontaminating equipment between every bat examination and at the end of every night, as well as forbidding anyone from bringing in equipment from out of state. Florida bats play a major role in insect control, consuming moths that destroy crops and dining upon mosquitoes. Some bats also pollinate owers, although all bats in Florida are insectivores. How can you help bats? Use insecticide sparingly and with caution. Its always nice to put out bat houses, Tucker said. And if you come across bats in tree cavities, palm fronds or Spanish moss, step back and give them their space. volunteers from throughout the southeast United States and as far away as Oklahoma, Kentucky and Ohio. The blitz, sponsored by the Florida Bat Working Group in conjunction with the Southeastern Bat Diversity Network, was held for the rst time in How are bats doing in Florida? In general, we have a sense in Florida that our common species of eastern United States has not been detected in Florida. The disease is caused by a fungus found in cold caves and affects bats as they hibernate. With Floritheir space. Whats that? You dont think your boat is big enough to go into the Gulf and catch snapper? I sh a Hewes 16-foot Red Fisher, and Ill go anywhere in the Gulf weather considering. Of course Im not planning to do any bill shing, but 12 miles is not out of the question. Just watch the weather. There are plenty of public spots within 1 mile of the beach. If you think these spots are shed out, dont be so sure. Most people sh with tackle too big for the sh they are trying to catch. A friend of mine pulled up on a bridge span where some other fellows were shing. They were using big reels with 80-pound test line, and they were not catching anything. In a short time, my friend had his limit of snapper and the other sherman were amazed. My friend showed them a bass rod with 30-pound test line and 30-pound test leader weighed down with a -ounce lead slid directly on the circle hook with a half cigar minnow for bait. That is South Florida-style shing, which is catching on here in the Panhandle. Use that type of tackle and anchor over a bridge span and chum, and you will become a better sherman overnight. Either buy chum and a bag to put it in and tie it about halfway to the bottom on the anchor line or simply save your bait that is not quite useable from your last shing trip and cut it into small pieces and throw some over the transom every now and then. Then watch what comes to the back of the boat in short order. Tying the chum bag to the anchor line gets the bait down to the sh and not a lot is lost oating off behind the boat. Every time a wave jerks the boat, it shakes a little more chum out of the bag and it is not wasted. Try this method, and Im sure you will be pleased with the results. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net Captains fired up over triggerfishing closure By TINA HARBUCK 654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Starting Monday, trigger sh are off the catch list for local shermen. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council announced earlier this week that the recreational harvest of gray trigger sh will close June 11 and will not reopen until Jan. 1, 2013. I dont think theres a need for it, Dawn Patrol Too Capt. Chris Akers said of the closure. You can still nd them. Until then, anglers can keep 10 trigger sh per angler, and the sh has to be 14 inches in length to the fork to keep. Im seeing plenty of them out there, said Capt. Eddie Dykes of the Shamrock II. I wish they would just let us catch the big ones. At least give us a shot at more sh for our customers, he said. Dykes said just last week he was shing at the Timberholes and couldnt get bait down because of the trigger sh bite. I dont see a shortage in them, Dykes said. Plus the change in the middle of the season hurts, because you cant plan for your customers, he said. The closure is not necessary, agreed Capt. Kirk Reynolds of the SS Enterprise. And they dont have the data to back it up. It just reinforces that they panic when we start catching a few, said Capt. Robert Hill of the Twilight, who had a couple of trigger sh on the racks Thursday. There are more trigger sh out there now than I can remember, Hill said. The size limit has worked. Even if the shermen have to release the small ones, The trigger sh is a tough sh, said Capt. Stan Phillips of the Sea Winder. They live real well when released. Trigger sh is not the only shery recently shut down. The greater amberjack shery is closed June 1 to July 31 and will reopen Aug. 1 and go through Dec. 31. The Gulf Coast signature red snapper recently opened up June 1 but is scheduled to close July 10. Also opening in a few days will be the gag grouper. Anglers will be able to catch gag grouper from July 1 to Oct. 31. For more information concerning openings and closings go to sero.nmfs.noaa.gov. Mary Anna Adams and family from Shreveport, La., pulled in a nice catch of red snapper anked by a pair of trigger sh while shing Thursday with Capt. Eddie Dykes on the Shamrock II.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012 By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Joey Logano has added another win to the record books that makes sev eral this season and 13 for his career, although this is his rst win since 2009 in the Sprint Cup Series. Securing his spot in the pole position for Sundays race, Logano made one of his qualifying laps at 179.598 mph. Logano passed up Mark Martin in the nal three laps to take the lead and then the checkered ag in the Pocono 400. His average speed was an as tounding 131.004 mph. But that wasnt the fast est time on the track. At one point, Tony Stewart was clocked going past the start/nish line at 205 mph. On top of winning the Pocono 400, Logano also made the record books at the newly paved track in Pocono. The main attractions at this race were all of the speeding penalties that were given coming on and off Pit Road. There were seven cautions but noth ing major. Only three cars were out of the race. A.J. Allmendinger went out on lap 66 after hitting the wall coming out of turn two, and lap one involved Landon Cassill and Martin Truex Jr. He didnt go out before being black agged for not lining up as he should have on a restart and getting pinned with a penalty af ter speeding back onto Pit Road. Another car that was out was that of Kyle Busch after he started leaking oil. The other that was out was Greg Bifes when his en gine blew. Other cautions that went out were on lap 13 when J.J. Yeley, Reed Sorenson and Tony Raines tangled up in Turn Three and on lap 74 when David Ragan blew a tire that left debris in Turn One. On lap 136, Kasey Kahne hit the wall and then on lap 149, the nal caution went out for metal in Turn Two. There were seven speeding penalties issued during the race. Those be ing issued penalties were Clint Bowyer, Brad Kesel owski, Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch, David Ragan and Jimmie Johnson, who was penalized twice, once com ing onto Pit Road and once going off.

The Bay County-based Nuggets could not hold out to win their division tourna ment after playing back-toback games in the cham pionship game against the Georgia Sting.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A9 Special to The Times-Advertiser BONIFAY Alberta Ingle presented a special pro gram on the history of the Bonifay Womans Club at the Clubs dinner meeting May 21. She told of the clubs origins in 1910 as the Womans Library Associa tion, which later changed its name to become a part of the Florida Federation of Womens Clubs and has been a vital part of the community throughout its history. The Bonifay Womans Club is the old est civic organization in Holmes County. Ingle has served as president of Bonifay Wom ans Club more often than anyone else in the clubs history except for W.A. Sessoms, one of the clubs founders, who was presi dent for 30 years, 1910 to 1940. In the clubs modern era, Ingle was president from 1980-1987, then again in 1993-1995 and 1997-2001. She also has served in various other capacities in the club and is currently parliamentarian. In introducing Ingle, Dianne Smith, president of Bonifay Womans Club, said Ingle has truly loved the club for a long time and has been a great example of what it means to serve the community through a civic organization. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Bonifay Kiwanis Club welcomed the Bethlehem High School robotics class to their May 30 meeting to have them speak about their recent experience as second-place win ner and winner of the Judges Choice Award at the STEM TECH Olympiad 2012 battlebot competition. Armed with only their wits and a 120-pound ro bot named Rhinoceros Prime Engaged, they eagerly traveled the 600 miles to STEM TECH Olympiad 2012, which was hosting the National BOTSIQ nals, said the students math and robot ics teacher, Gary Driver. The event was hosted by USATL, the United States Alliance for Technology Literacy. Driver said by Sunday afternoon, Rhinoceros Prime Engaged was the only robot that had not lost a match in the double elimination bracket sys tem of the high school division, which quickly caught and kept the eyes of the judges. Each ght, they had knocked out their oppo nents, with the longest match lasting about 2 minutes of the 3-minute round; however, they had to beat the robot com ing back from the losers bracket to be named champ, Driver said. The Miami high school bot Diesel had lost in the rst round but managed to work its way through the losers bracket and stood in the way of a clean sweep. The rst match went the full 3 minutes, and the judges decision went to Diesel. Driver said because that was Rhinos rst loss, a second 3-minute round was scheduled, and in the second ght against Die sel, neither bot was able to knock out the other. Once again, it went to a judges decision, Driver said. This time it was a split decision, but the victory went to Die sel. Rhinoceros Prime Engaged had come up a little short but enjoyed the second-place stand ing when during the awards ceremony they were named the Judges Choice Award winner for the best overall robot at the competition. Driver said the Judg es Choice Award was more then meets the eye. This is the most cov eted award and is based on design, durability, ag gression, team spirit and robot ability, he said. We want to thank are the Kiwanis Club of Bonifay, Johnsons Laser works, Holmes Tool and Engineering, Big Dad dys and HT Hackney of Opp, Driver said. The students made up the ex tra money for the robot and trip, one candy bar at a time. We would like to thank all those who sup ported our candy sales.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 THG-12901 As we welcome the joys of summer such as swimming, barbequing, and baseball, we have to greet the Texas heat. As temperatures are increasing highs this week were in the lowto mid-90s it is vital to take the necessary precautions to protect pets from heat exhaustion. Although there is not a set temperature that is considered too hot for animals, temperatures in the high-80s and above can pose problems for pets, Dr. Stacy Eckman, lecturer at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) said. She added that, generally, if it is too hot for the pet owner to be outside, it is too hot for the pet. Every pet is different, however, on the temperature they can endure. Cats, for example, are usually more tolerant of the heat than dogs and can often nd a shady place to lounge. It is very dependent on the pet itself. For example, overweight dogs and brachycephalic (short nosed dogs such as bulldogs) are at a greater risk for heat stroke/ exhaustion for even short period of times in warm weather, Eckman said. Eckman said other dogs that have a higher chance of heat exhaustion are those genetically sensitive to the heat and those not acclimated to the heat such as indoor dogs. Both dogs with long, thick coats and those with short, thin coats can become overheated so she recommended taking precautions for all types of dogs. She explained that even dogs who exercise vigorously can become overheated. The perfect example of this is a dog who goes to the dog park on a nice, warm, spring day when they have not been all winter, and they play with a Frisbee disk and run more than normal, Eckman said. She added that this was a common case of heat exhaustion. Eckman said, generally, the rst symptoms of heat exhaustion are lethargy and listlessness. They pant to try to cool themselves and can be anxious as they try to nd a cool place, she said. She added that if pets are outside for too long and become overheated, they can develop diarrhea and vomiting which could lead to shock. If a pet has these symptoms, Eckman recommended taking him/her to a veterinarian immediately for a diagnosis and treatment. She stressed not to put cold water or ice packs on the animal because it makes it harder for them to cool off. To prevent heat exhaustion, Eckman suggested providing shade and fans for pets. She also emphasized the importance of having enough water for pets. Dogs cool themselves by panting and this can dehydrate them, so they will need more water than you may think, Eckman said. It is also crucial to not overwork animals so start slowly when exercising. Take breaks during exercise or play to make sure they cool down and off, Eckman said.

SNYDER Celebrating another Fathers Day without my father, I cannot help thinking of how much has changed since he died. If he were to return today, he would nd things quite different. In all reality, this is not my fathers world anymore. I might just as well say it. This is not my fathers country anymore, either. The country my father loved seems to have all but disappeared. During his time, a deepseated patriotic pride permeated throughout our country. We were proud of what our forefathers had accomplished and we were willing to die to preserve that heritage. Today, it seems the past is simply the past and has no bearing whatsoever on the present. This may be why history books are being rewritten today. This, however, is a fallacy encouraged by those who do not know their right hand from their left hand. In our country today, you are either far right or far left and nothing in between. Whatever happened to people with common sense? Perhaps that ancient anonymous philosopher was right when he said the problem with common sense was that it really was not that common anymore. Perhaps the demise of the common man explains this phenomenon. Or, it could be that most people today have been educated be on their common sensibilities. There was a time in my fathers country when people were proud of what they did. A few tried to get money without working for it. In my fathers country, there was a great deal of pride in working for what you had and not depending on somebody with a handout. In my fathers country, there was a deep sense of accomplishment in earning what you had by the sweat of your brow. The only people sweating these days are politicians up for reelection. In my fathers country, there was no such thing as arbitrary handouts but plenty of hands out. It was considered our patriotic duty to help our neighbor when they were in trouble. Nobody looked to Uncle Sam to solve his or her problems. It was a community affair not a government mandate. In fact, if the truth were known, and evidently it is not, they stayed as far away from Uncle Sam as possible only communicating with him once a year on April 15. In those days, they saluted the ag, recited the Pledge of Allegiance and were right proud to do so. Not one of them could imagine anybody ashamed of doing that in public. Today a lot is being said about the separation of church and state. My father would not understand the way some people are interpreting it. According to what is going on today, they are trying to keep the church out of the state but make good and sure the state runs the church. Isnt that why we had a revolution in the rst place? In my fathers country, there was a separation between government control and people pursuing life, liberty and happiness. Oh, for those good old days. Also, in my fathers country baseball was a national sport not a business. I am not quite sure when it became a business, but my father never thought it was. He often took me to the ball eld on a Saturday afternoon to have fun, enjoy the game and eat the worlds most delicious hotdog. At least he said they were the worlds most delicious hotdogs. Our purpose in going was just to have fun. He did his share of making fun and harassing the other teams fans, but it never crossed his mind to physically beat one of them nearly to death. If I remember correctly, wedgies were the order of the day. When our team won, we celebrated and highved everybody around us. When our team lost, we determined with everything within us to slaughter them the next week on the eld. When we said slaughter, we were talking guratively. Credit was something my fathers generation frowned on. As a young person, I had in my mind to buy a bicycle. I took my father to the store to look at that prized bike. Well, my father stammered, as he looked the bike over. How much money youve got saved for this bike? I knew the lecture that was to follow. If you could not afford to buy something, you could not afford to have it. How many times have I heard that? Perhaps if my father could come back for a day we could send him to Washington, D.C. and explain to them this whole idea that if you cannot afford something you cannot afford something. It seemed to make sense to me, and I was only a young person at the time. I guess when you get older you lose a lot of that good common sense. Then if elected and go to Washington, D.C., you leave all of that good common sense back home with your constituency who wonder what they elected you for. The verse of Scripture that was very important to my father was, And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it (Psalms 90:17 KJV). It may not be the same country my father loved, but I can still operate on the same principles that made him a patriotic father, and pray, Establish thou the work of our hands. Rev. James L.

This Message Courtesy of The Power of Words Language is more than just words. Every the primordial experience of the languages original speakers. Thus every language is a world view, but also the conditions of making experience intelligible. As Heidegger put it, Language is the house of being. The primor the Greek word logos which is often trans lated as word, although the concept of logos is much richer than the English word. Logos is the principle of intelligibility underlying things, but also the bridge between the spiritual realm and the physical realm. Words are concrete, audible and visible expres sions of abstract concepts. A word is a mate rialized idea and thus the concept of Logos or Word was a natural idea to express and explain the second person of the trinity, i.e. Jesus. Understanding this gives one a sense of the sublime power of language to both create and to make the world intelligible.

According to Esto Fire Chief Charles Corcoran, the rst re happened at about midnight June 1 in a vacant building at 1024 State 79 in Esto. Corcoran said in light of the evidence found at the scene, he was con dent it was a case of arson. First of all, its a vacant building, Corcoran said. That means that the building was unoccupied and the electricity and other utilities had been turned off to the building. This eliminates the possibility that it was caused by faulty wiring, etc. Corcoran said with further investigation, it was determined someone had been living in the vacant building recently. He said the res location led to a determination of arson. It couldnt have been a cooking re because its in the back of the area, where its cluttered and away from the area where he was eating, Corcoran said. You can tell that the re was set deliberately. He said the re was small and took very little water and manpower to put out. The second re occurred at 9:11 p.m. June 2 at Esto Assembly of God Church, which has not been utilized since January. This re was much bigger, utilizing the services of Pittman, Hartford, Graceville, Bonifay and Esto re departments until 3:30 the next morning. We used over 5,000 gallons of water and ve re departments on scene, Corcoran said. Bonifay stretched the line and protected the surrounding houses, Graceville stretched and operated the lines into the building, and we had Pittman and Hartford as backup. Corcoran said without a re hydrant to draw water from, the re departments have to use their tankers, and once one was empty another would take their place while the other lled back up. The process repeated itself until the re was out. The re could have easily spread to the surrounding houses due to the dry conditions, and there was a wooden fence so close to the church, Corcoran said. We had West Florida Electric out there in about 10 minutes to kill the power and secure the area from electrical issues. This was a well-contained re. Corcoran said both res are under investigation.BOCC approves Esto Dollar GeneralBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners approved of a small-scale amendment to allow Dollar General Corporation to build a Dollar General in Esto during their regularly scheduled meeting May 29. The board held a public hearing to consider Amendment 12S1, to change the land-use classi cation of a 2.7-acre parcel of property in Esto from residential low density to commercial use so Dollar General Corporation could start construction of its new store. County Attorney Jeff Goodman said the Holmes County Planning Commission had given approval and that Holmes County Building Inspector Roger Williams was aware of the project as well. I think it would be an asset to the community, planning commission Chairman Carlton Treadwell said during their May 15 meeting, when they approved the request to BOCC. Our elderly have to travel so far just for groceries and supplies. It would be nice to have something close. Dollar General Corporation agent and developer Buddy Page was present during the planning commissions meeting and said the company would need 10 to 15 employees to be hired and that construction would start as soon as possible. In other news, Goodman told the board a settlement agreement of $15,000 had been offered in the Holmes County v. Wade Gilbert LLC lawsuit regarding the Shoo Fly Bridge. Holmes County led a lawsuit against Wade Gilbert LLC when Shoo Fly Bridge collapsed under the weight of a dump truck in January 2009. See BOCC A3By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY A recent incident left the Bonifay City Council resolved to reinforce an ordinance that was put into place in 1987. During the councils regular June meeting on Monday, council member Richard Woodham said there had been a building housing three businesses that were running off one water meter, and a problem arose when one of those businesses refused to pay their portion of the bill. He looked into the ordinances and found Ordinance 238, stating that no owner, business entity, person or corporation shall divide any city lot or city property for use by another business entity, person or corporation unless a meter is installed for each area divided; and further no owner, business, entity, person or corporation shall divide any house, residence, business or structure of any nature unless a separate meter is provided for each division. City Clerk Jeri Gibson said it had not been an issue until now because all entities that have been sharing the meter have been paying individually, and the city has seen no loss in revenue because of it. Woodham asked whether the city could shut off the water to those three businesses if one doesnt pay. City Attorney Lucas Taylor said that is what the city must do with any unpaid water bill. Eventually someone will pay, Taylor said. One business owner, however, was exempt from this obligation during the course of the meeting. Tabitha Wichkowski of Fish Reality is in the same predicament with a shared meter; however, she had came before the council to request exemption from paying water and sewer. Our of ce doesnt have water or sewer, Wichkowski said. She said there are no sinks, toilets or running water of any kind in her of ce, yet she had been shar-Bonifay to enforce meter ordinance See METER A2 HOLMES COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISERHolmes County High School held its graduation ceremony for 102 seniors on June 5 at Memorial Field.

LocalWednesday, June 13, 2012 ing the bill with her neighbor for quite some time. It doesnt make sense to hook up a separate meter to a system that doesnt exist, Woodham said. She shouldnt have to pay for something she doesnt even have. The council approved of waiving her water and sewer expenses. The council agreed to Woodhams request to look into all of the businesses and residences that are in similar situations to see if anyone is slipping by and not paying the city for sewer and water. City Engineer Amir Zafar of Hatch Mott MacDonald reported that the city would have to make an adjustment to the new wastewater sewer plant because of a new Florida building code change. When we put the item to bid, the building only had to withstand up to 110 mph winds, Zafar said. Now, with the new building code, the building will have to stand up to a minimal of 130 mph winds. Zafar said this actually would be a simple task, because they had leeway in their contract agreement with M&W Construction Company just in case something like this should occur mid-project. Because of contingency funds, they will be able to pay the extra $11,355, raising the cost from $89,900 to $101,255, to reinforce the building. This just means were going to have an even stronger building, Zafar said. We just have to change the contract amount, add the required mph wind resistance and send it to United States Department of Agriculture for approval. The council approved of the change of contract amount pending USDA approval. Zafar also told the council he had compiled a letter in response to the Florida Department of Environmental Protections letter stating that the city was in violation because of levels of high nitrogen and unionized ammonia in the water. Basically, the letter says that we were in the process of building our new wastewater facility as well as our in ltration and in ow project before the letter was issued, and that once these projects are completed, we should have the ltering system we need to keep our water above and beyond current drinking water standards, Zafar said. Council member Roger Brooks presented the council with the nal rough draft of what the new city welcome signs would look like. Weve been working on this project for quite some time because the city is in desperate need of welcome signs, Brooks said. Right now were looking at a total of $5,000 to build both signs; however, it will be a lot cheaper if we nd out we can use inmate labor to build them. Brooks said he had several sources, such as the Holmes County Tourist Development Council and the Bonifay Kiwanis Club, that might be willing to chip in some funding if the city approves to pay half. One sign would be located near Interstate 10, and the other would replace the sign on U.S. 90. The council approved of paying for half for the new signs, which at the most would be $2,500. Mayor Lawrence Cloud informed the council there was an entity that wanted to come in and build an assisted living facility on St. Johns Road where the Hidden Lakes trailer park once was. Julia Bullington, coordinator for the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce, said the company wanted to eventually build a 60-room assisted living facility with an adult day care center. They want to start with 40 rooms rst and work their way up to 60 rooms, Bullington said. They say it will take eight to 10 months to complete and will create 10 to 15 jobs here in Bonifay. All they need is letters of support from all the local agencies. Bullington also said the company wasnt able to get a USDA grant, but that they were applying for a USDA loan. It was the loan that required letters of support from the local agencies.

LocalWednesday, June 13, 2012 City of Bonifay 2011 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report of the City of BonifayWere pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. With 4 water wells located throughout the city, the City of Bonifay draws an average of 1 million gallons per day from the Upper Floridan Aquifer. Due to the excellent quality of this groundwater source, disinfection through chlorination is the only treatment process required to produce an aesthetically pleasing product to the community. (850) 547-2701, between the hours of 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 6:30 pm at City Hall, located at 301 N. Etheridge St. The City of Bonifay routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2011. Data obtained before January 1, 2011, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. In 2011 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells There are 16 potential sources of fay Public Works Department at (850) 547-2701. Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR) The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the stage 2 DBPR. ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum residual disinfection level goal or MRDLG The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can, also, come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Bonifay is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). We at the City of Bonifay would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A3The board approved of the settlement agreement of $15,000. The board also held the rst reading a public hearing and rst reading to consider the adoption of culvert Ordinance 12-01. Commissioner Kenneth Williams had brought his concerns about purchasing pipes for residents and collecting sales tax to the board during an April 24 meeting. He said when a pipe needed to be replaced in someones driveway, for example, the county would receive money from the resident to purchase a pipe at county rates and in turn the county retained the sales tax. I dont think we should be in the pipe-buying business and collecting sales tax, Williams said. We should make them purchase the pipes, and well even give them the name and number of the place we buy ours if they want it. The board approved of Williams suggestion. On the same token, I think if a person buys a pipe and were maintaining it, then they should buy the pipe and the county put it in with no charge, Williams said. The board approved modifying the ordinance so that if someone has a pipe put in and if the pipe corrodes or rusts, then the person will pay for the pipe but the county will waive the permit and installation fees. The board also discussed the EMS supervisor position since Jerome Szczekot announced his retirement. After much discussion, the board approved the promotion of Shay McCormick to the position with a vote of 4-1, with Commissioner Jim King voting no. County Engineer Cliff Knauer gave an update on the Small County Road Assistance Program, suggesting that the board submit County Road 181 from County Road 185 to the Walton County Line. After some discussion, the board approved of Knauers suggestion. The board also approved of signing the Standard Memorandum of Agreement for Limited Access to Florida Data, an agreement with the Florida Department of Children and Family Services for access to Medicaid-related information. The board approved of the Tourist Development Council Board recommendations to have Aaron Miller replace Alicia Gonsalves and Stephanie Williams replace Commissioner Phillip Music on the TDC Board. The board also approved the Holmes County Development Commissions recommendation that Nolan Baker, Dewey Crutcheld and Sandy Spear replace Jeffery Johnson and Roger White replace Gary Deal on the development commission. Goodman presented the board with a land sale item from the Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church to purchase a piece of land that has been leased by the church and includes an adjoining parcel of land owned by the county that had inadvertently been occupied by church grave sites. Goodman also told the board the church already had paid to have a survey done. The board approved Goodmans recommendation that he draw up a deed and a contact to sale the property to the church for $1,000. Emergency Management Director Wanda Stafford presented the board with the Emergency Operations Center vehicle purchase item. Stafford said Williams had asked her to see if it were possible for the board to use her departments 2006 diesel Ford truck for the Parks and Recreation Department and for her to use Emergency Management grant funds to purchase another vehicle. She said the state had agreed to accept $10,000 from the board for the truck and that those funds would be used toward the purchase of a 2013 Chevy Tahoe. The board approved Staffords requests. Holmes County 911 Director Clint Erickson updated the board on the progress of the 911 Dispatch ofce location discussions. Space became an issue with the 911 Dispatch when a grant gave the department $300,000 worth of new and additional equipment. The new equipment had to be in place and operational by June 2013, but time was of the essence as the old equipments warranty was running out. The new equipment had to be stored temporarily. The options were narrowed down to two possibilities: expand the centers space or move to the new EOC. Bonifay is allowing dispatch to use one of their buildings rent-free and agreed to allow them to expand as long as dispatch assumes all of the expenses.

Youll never miss your water until the well runs dry are the words to an old country yodeling tune. It kind of expresses the way many of us felt when Simbos family restaurant closed in December last year. We had just taken for granted that they would be there for club meetings, family reunions, class or school reunions or just Sunday after-church dinner. Their closing left us scrambling for a place to hold such gatherings. So, it was with great relief that we learned the business that has operated in the same location for 35 years was being rejuvenated and opening as Scotts Restaurant. Scott Thompson, who came to live in Bonifay in the ninth grade with his parents Cliff and Peggy Thompson and younger sister, the late Jennifer Thompson, has reopened the business, on State 79 between downtown Bonifay and Interstate 10. After Scott graduated from Holmes County High in 1991, Chipola Junior College and The University of West Florida, he continued to work in the food service industry, which had helped support him through college. He worked for Ruby Tuesday in every position from bus boy up to managing partner. He opened the rst Ruby Tuesday in Enterprise, Ala. He did a stint with OCharleys, Cracker Barrel and Applebees. Seeing the need to be closer to his parents as they approach senior adult status, Scott rst opened the Townhouse in downtown Bonifay, but seizing the opportunity to expand, he leased Simbos and is continuing with the traditional family style restaurant provided there with some new innovations and specialties. Simbos Restaurant started in 1975 on U.S. 90 East, where Gene and Betty Sims operated a food establishment for a couple of years. I had always thought the name Simbo came from Genes grandfathers name, Jimbo Sims. However, in talking to Betty Sims, she said that Simbo was the nickname for their oldest son, Mark. It was a name that now identies a landmark. As Interstate 10 was being constructed, the Sims family saw an opportunity to expand their business, and around 1976, they opened the restaurant and the truck stop in partnership with brother Jimmy and wife Myrt. Brother Archie Van and his late wife Jean were also involved in the business with Archie Van serving as head chef and grill master. They have always specialized in family style meals, and I recall my dad, who was known all about this area as the place to go for fresh peas and other produce, used to sell them fresh peas. Another family member, Mrs Anna Sims, helped shell the peas and prepare other fresh produce. The south end of Bonifay was totally undeveloped when the Sims family moved out toward the interstate. Soon after that move, Hightowers garage was built, followed by the Tivoli Inn and Jernigan Beach, a drive-in restaurant about where the donut shop, Hungry Howies, Vos and Subway are located. Blitchs restaurant located rst on the Jernigan property but later moved to the Jehovahs Witness building. Los Rancheros now occupies that location. Through the years, the Sims family have been very much a part of the community and maintained this important gathering place. Though the business at times was leased to other interests, it kept returning to the Sims family. Most recently, it was operated by second and third generation family members. The refurbished interior, the expanded menu and the addition of oor manager Russell McNeal will make your dining experience a pleasant one. We welcome Scott back home and are glad to know that Bonifay has a good place for groups to meet and enjoy good food and friendly service at the same time. The 107th session of the Brock Reunion will be held on Saturday, June 16, at the Agriculture Center, located on U. S. 90 east of Bonifay. The family get-to-gather is set for high noon when all the covered dishes will be uncovered and the bountiful spread placed on the table for the hundreds of expected kinsmen to enjoy. The long running family reunion was started in May 1905. It was held in celebration of the birthday of Thomas Jefferson Brock, who was born May 1, 1856, in Washington County. The rst child born to the honoree and his wife, Nancy Jane Yates Brock, was their daughter Annie Virginia (Jenny) Brock Anderson, who arrived on her fathers 19th birthday, May 1, 1875. Seven additional daughters and three sons were later born to this couple. The present day Brock Reunion was rst known as Pa Brocks Birthday Dinner and was rst held at the oldest daughters home. It then was held at the patriarchs home near Hinson Cross Roads for a number of years before the meeting place was changed to Brackin School. From there, it found a home at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church for many years before moving to the present location. For several years, the Prattler has written articles the week prior to the Brock Reunion, honoring some special member of the family. During the past year, Don McKinnon, a descendant of the Brock clan, sent a picture to me, reportedly taken at the Brock gathering in 1929. Shown prominently in the center of that photograph is obviously cousin Millard Anderson, the oldest child of the oldest daughter, Jenny and husband, James Henry (Little Jim) Anderson, the family being spotlighted in this years column. Millard appears to be dressed out in his U. S. Army Uniform, which he wore proudly as a soldier in combat during World War I, while serving in France. He was honorably discharged in 1918, which means the uniform was stored away for 11 years before this picture. The writer vividly recalls that the four main people recognized at the annual Brock assembly was Millard, as the oldest grandson and Annie Lee Brock Williams, daughter of James Willie (Will) Brock and wife, Loanva Amalee Henderson Brock, as the oldest granddaughter. The youngest grandson was Conrad (Connie Bush) son of Arkie Brock Bush and husband, Ward Bush, while Myrtle Harrell Davis, daughter of O.D. Brock Harrell and husband, W. Alto Harrell held the title as the youngest granddaughter. Myrtle, is one of the six surviving granddaughters of Tom Brock, with all the grandsons deceased. In addition to having this historic photograph accompany todays Prattle, it is my plan to have it at the upcoming reunion, where, hopefully, someone can identify more of the people. In addition to Millard, Jim and Jenny Anderson had Rufus, Sanders Emerson, Noma Eliza, Agustus Douglas, Oma, Willie, Mattie Lou and James Thomas. According to granddaughter, Virgina Anderson Hewett, her grandfather always told people that he lived way down on Fowl Pond, with a second unusual landmark, Devils Garden, also being located near the home. The offspring of these pioneers lived in close proximity to the home where they were reared. After marriage, the children brought many grandchildren into the family. The Andersons supported the Brock Reunion, as did the other children of Tom and Jane Brock. Jim Andersons trademark dish for the spread of food at lunchtime was roasted goat!

Letter to the EEDITORTo the editor: After the June 5 planning commission meeting, a couple of residents shared your article from the May 9, 2012, Opinions section of the paper titled Awareness is a citizens responsibility with some attendees and myself. I must say I was quite disappointed and quite frankly extremely offended by what I read. Is it not just a little hypocritical to call the concerned citizens of the county who take the time and gas money to attend the meetings lazy? You yourself did not attend last nights meeting, so would it be fair for the citizens or myself to assume it was because you were too lazy? Just as you are entitled to your opinion, the residents, some lifelong, are also entitled to theirs. I would suggest you listen to the audio of the May 1, 2012, planning commission meeting. A resident rightfully requested that the agenda of the meetings be posted 7 to 10 days prior to the meeting on the county website and newspapers. This is not the rst time this request has been made. The lazy citizens have asked for this so they have the time to compile pertinent information and come prepared to the meeting. Your comment about the lady who said she didnt read the paper was far from accurate. I myself had addressed the board requesting they consider an amendment to notify all property owners by mail if a land-use change would affect their property. While speaking, I stated the fact that the newspapers only reach 18% of this countys population. To prove a point, Commissioner Kelley directed a question to the next speaker asking her how she heard about the meeting and the land-use change. Her response was word of mouth at the Legends and Lore Festival. The woman then stated she did not get the paper nor does she read the paper. She did not say she was too lazy to read the paper. The gentleman who said he had a job and kids simply stated he should not have to attend meetings every month and keep looking over his shoulder to protect his property rights. Some folks like city life, some folks like beach life and the majority in attendance that evening prefer the rural, quiet, private country life. Your arrogance is quite apparent in your article. As for the restrictions so many were opposed to, all property owners and residents are entitled to their right to oppose new restrictions that would result in changing their way of life and livelihood. Several of us purchased our properties where we did so we could raise farm animals and enjoy our quiet country way of life. To restrict residents of an agriculture county to owning only 12 chickens, that, Mr. Seyler, is what is laughable. To impose a land use allowing the subdivision this beautiful county into 1 acre lots, that, Mr. Seyler, is laughable. To assume that all residents can afford computers and Internet service, that is laughable. To suggest that the residents of the rural communities that wish to keep their way of life the way it is are lazy, that is laughable. To report to your readers that anyone speaking in favor of the restrictions would have been in danger, well, Mr. Seyler, that was extremely rude and unjustied. Not to mention, not only laughable but outright hysterical. Not one resident that evening was threatening or even considering it. In closing, may I just say, this lazy resident will continue to attend meetings and ask questions. I will continue to ght for my property rights and will not back down from a few greedy individuals who want to over develop this county while stufng their pockets at the expense of other property owners rights. So keep on laughing, Mr. Seyler. While I do agree that from time to time a citizen will act unruly or even rude, I still hold rm my belief that all are entitled to speak at meetings. As I am sure you know, many people have a fear of public speaking. I would not want any citizen of this county to not address the planning commission or county commission for fear of being ridiculed by their neighbors or journalists of this ne community. Although I disagree, I respect your opinion of some of the residents who spoke at the May 1 meeting. I can only hope the article will not deter the citizens of this county from attending and speaking at public hearings and meetings.Catie DerosiaChipley Brock family celebrates 107th reunion HappHAPPY cCORnNERHazel Wells Tison Simbos to reopen as Scotts Editors lazy label unfair to meeting attendees See PR RATTLE TTLE A5Wednesday, June 13, 2012

LocalWednesday, June 13, 2012Several issues arose from remaining in their current building, which included air-conditioning, time, money and labor to expand. Another issue was that the rst instillation of the new equipment was free, but if they had to move the equipment in the next ve years, it would cost them $20,000 to move. Erickson said Bonifay had sent a letter stating that additional footage could be added to the building dispatch was occupying to accommodate the additional equipment, and the estimated expense to the board would be $1,000. Erickson also said another expense to consider would be $1,800 to move the communications equipment from the re bay area, and that expense was not within the 911 Department budget. The board agreed to let Goodman and King meet with the City of Bonifay to prepare a proposal for the boards consideration and for Erickson to have a list of all the costs involved with the project to be given to Goodman. Melinda Pollock of CDG Engineers updated the board on the site testing at the Road Department Shop and informed the board that the Department of Environmental Protection had sent a proposal for site testing and an appointment for a teleconference. She said the work should begin in July. Commissioner Monty Merchant told the board his districts grader was broken and requested to lease a machine. With much discussion, the board found that there are other districts with graders in need of repairs and discussed the possibility of purchasing three new graders and trade-in values for repaired versus non-repaired graders. The board approved of allowing Merchant to lease a grader and to x the three graders with the intention of getting rid of them. Merchant also told the board Otis Lane Bridge had been inspected and was in need of repairs and that repairing it would cost $11,000 if they wanted to go with lumber or $5,000 for three 20-foot sections of plastic culvert pipes. The board approved purchasing the culvert pipes to repair the bridge. ter of support from the city, because it wasnt tying the city into any obligations and it had the potential to create more local jobs. Well see if theyre approved of the loan, and then we will discuss with them about the local ordinances and impact fees required for this project, Cloud said. The council approved of bidding out their surplus automobiles to the highest bidder, which was PC Buyers for $3,381. The council also approved of Public Works Director Jack Marells request to earmark some of that money to purchase a new lift for the city mechanic. Hes got nothing to lift our equipment with so he can work on it, and the one they do have is so shaky its dangerous, Marell said. Local resident Steve Andrew requested that he use the basketball court at Veterans Park to hold a basketball tournament in June and July to raise money for a charitable cause. He also requested that three of the lights be xed at the court, a low-hanging branch be cut and that one of the goals be repaired. Im all for it, Woodham said. Its for a good cause after all. Marell said he would go out with Andrew to the court and see what needs to be done. Local residents Luther Curry and Michell Coe requested assistance about people bringing their dogs into the local parks. The sign clearly said that there were no dogs allowed in the park, and yet this woman came in with her pit bull and tied him to a fence, Curry said. Police Chief Chris Wells presented Taylor with an old dog ordinance. Well check out this old ordinance and see if we can adopt it and give it some teeth, Cloud said.

The audit revealed that this year the town would do ne, with the worstcase scenario being that they break even at the end of the year. However, with the recent loss of their tenant at the old shirt factory, they could nd themselves in a decit in the upcoming year. Its about that time we had an increase anyway, said Mayor Sheena Hougland. It was a general rule that we should increase the utility rates by two percent every two years. The council agreed to look into the amount of the upcoming increase, looking for a percentage that would both help the town and be fair to the residents. The council also agreed to look into ways to better rent out the building again, with one possibility being to lower the rent. Town Attorney Lyndia Spears informed the council that she had talked with the land owners son in regards to the agriculture building owned by the Holmes County School District and the land found to be owned by someone else. The town council had been leasing the building from the school district for some time and was interested in renting the building out. The school district didnt want to be tied into any liability so they did a quick claim deed on the building and offered it to the town. I told them we didnt want to get into a long lengthy battle for the property so we declined, said Spears. After speaking with the son Ive found that the state has seized the property and though he still retains it he has been forced to place the property on market at fair market value. He wanted to give the property to the town, but he was forced to put it on the market. Council member John Harrison informed the council that holes in Magnolia Road and Government Street would need to be lled. The re department reported ve calls last month and has already received six calls for this month. Also reported was the most resent Boot Drive fundraiser, which was said to have been fairly unsuccessful and will the planed for a later date to help raise funds for the volunteer re department. In new business, the Federal Emergency Management Agency requested that the town rewrite and resubmit their ood ordinance, which has been a common occurrence according to the letter from FEMA, due to changes within their own agency. Due to the next meeting being scheduled for the day after Independence Day, the council agreed to move the next meeting to 6 p.m. Thursday, July 12 at the Ponce de Leon Town Hall.CC ECILIA SPEARs S | TimesAdvertiserPonce de Leon Town Council members and re chief stand in front of the towns brand new re truck, one they were able to obtain through a grant.PDL looks into utility rate increase MEmME & PAS CELEBRATES GRADUATES

LocalWednesday, June 13, 2012By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, says rural northwest Florida feels like coming home. I feel like I won the redistricting lottery, said Gaetz, 64, a Republican who will return to Tallahassee as the senate president in November. I feel like I have been blessed with the opportunity to represent communities like the one I grew up in. Gaetz was in Washington County on June 5 for a campaign fundraiser. The senator represents District 4, will be the senator for Holmes, Washington and Jackson counties along with Bay and Walton and most of Okaloosa counties once the redistricting takes effect on July 1. He previously represented parts of Bay, Escambia, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, and Walton counties, but now he will be representing more rural, less affluent regions, which he says suits him just fine. I grew up in North Dakota in a small community like Chipley, so for me, this is like being at home. Gaetz says he shepherded the redistricting effort through the senate. Now that the redistricting maps have been approved by both the Supreme Court and the Justice Department, it seems that Gaetz can safely start calling Washington and Holmes counties home turf. Gaetz said he started working at age 11 in a weekly newspaper, where he eventually worked his way up to being editor. His skills he learned as a youth led to his career in the health care field. It was the ability to write, take photos and layout a page that got me hired, he said. He went to work at a Wisconsin health care facility as a community development coordinator and eventually became the No. 2 person in the company. Later, he relocated to Jacksonville, Fla., as a hospital administrator. People in rural counties work for a living, Gaetz said. I know what that is like. Ive always worked for a living. Here people are involved in their work, their small businesses and their communities. Unlike Destin or other coastal communities, where affluent people retire along the beach, families in the rural Florida communities are still struggling to make it dayto-day, and issues such as education and economic development are real concerns. If you talked about an 80-job business coming in to Tallahassee or south Florida, no one would get very excited, Gaetz said. But in our communities, an 80-job business is a very big deal. Gaetz said other parts of the state get more attention from the Department of Economic Development, but the rural communities need just as much attention. Due to his 30-year career in health care, Gaetz said he is passionate about protecting the small hospitals. You have to have access to health care, or your community just dries up and blows away. Health care is an essential ingredient for a community. One form of economic development Gaetz does not support is gambling such as the proposed slot machines at Ebro. I dont believe in expanding the economy with gambling, Gaetz said. I think often the promises are never quite fulfilled, but the negative aspects usually do occur. I would rather do the hard work of diversifying the economy than relying on gambling. Another concern affecting northwest Florida is the Citizens Property Insurance policies which are subsidized by all Florida policyholders, not only Citizens customers, Gaetz said. To that end, Gaetz is one of 25 legislators who recently signed a letter to interim president of Citizens, Tom Grady, endorsing a recommendation of the Citizens board to increase property insurance rates for new customers. Gaetz is also passionate about career education, and said he was one of only three senators to vote against House Bill 7129, which Gov. Rick Scott eventually vetoed. House Bill 7129 was written to give universities the power to seek unlimited tuition increases from their board of trustees and the state Board of Governors, especially University of Florida and Florida State University. I spent the afternoon at Chipola College, Gaetz said, and did you know that 100 percent of their students receiving bachelor degrees this year have jobs? That is because they are training people in fields that are in demand in the economy. He said that by comparison, last year 50 percent of college graduates in the U.S. were either unemployed or underemployed after graduation. I have a degree in religion and political science, Gaetz said. Nobody is going to pay me to talk about the Synoptic Gospels. Instead, it was the skills he learned working in the newspaper that led to his ultimate career in health care. Gaetz said an unnamed college president recently told him that degrees such as psychology are the bread and butter of the university system. Thats where they make their money, they can put students in big lecture halls. But he said only 15 percent of all psychology graduates are working in the field of psychology. Gaetz said he wanted to see a system created in which schools are rewarded for teaching skills that lead to employment. It is vital to our economy. Gaetz also noted that there is a misconception that technical education is less challenging than academic studies, a misconception he challenged while serving as superintendent of the Okaloosa School District. We started offering technical education, and what we found out was these kids who werent responding to chalk board education were just bored. Once they had something to learn that excited them, they also learned the math and writing skills.

To ensnare the bats, biologists hoist almost invisible mist nets as tall as trees. They wait for hours in the dark. They have equipment out on portable tables, so they can quickly log in any bats they capture. The bats will be identi ed, measured and weighed, and a sample of guano will be collected before they are let go. Its best to think like a bat when scouting for bats, said Melissa Tucker, wildlife biologist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Bats are not evenly distributed across the landscape. Some areas are more important for foraging and roosting, and were still guring those things out, she said. Sites over water or with features such as re lines or forest trails that funnel ying bats into the nets are usually good choices. The total of bats captured over three nights: 246. It was a lot of bats. We were really pleased about the number and the diversity. Finding eight species was exciting to us, Tucker said. It was an amount of information about bat species in north Florida that our staff couldnt have gathered on our own or in such a short amount of time. The Bat Blitz was conducted for three nights in late May as biologists from the FWC and the University of Florida joined forces with Apalachicola National Forest staff, as well as students and volunteers from throughout the southeast United States and as far away as Oklahoma, Kentucky and Ohio. The blitz, sponsored by the Florida Bat Working Group in conjunction with the Southeastern Bat Diversity Network, was held for the rst time in Florida.How are bats doing in Florida?In general, we have a sense in Florida that our common species of bats are probably doing OK, said Tucker, acknowledging, We do not have a lot of baseline information to draw from. The deadly white-nose syndrome that has decimated many cave-roosting bat species throughout the eastern United States has not been detected in Florida. The disease is caused by a fungus found in cold caves and affects bats as they hibernate. With Floridas relatively warm winters, few bats hibernate here, so there is hope bats in the state wont experience its devastating effects. Still, to prevent a potential spread of the fungus, Bat Blitz biologists were extremely careful about decontaminating equipment between every bat examination and at the end of every night, as well as forbidding anyone from bringing in equipment from out of state. Florida bats play a major role in insect control, consuming moths that destroy crops and dining upon mosquitoes. Some bats also pollinate owers, although all bats in Florida are insectivores.How can you help bats?Use insecticide sparingly and with caution. Its always nice to put out bat houses, Tucker said. And if you come across bats in tree cavities, palm fronds or Spanish moss, step back and give them their space. volunteers from throughout the southeast United States and as far away as Oklahoma, Kentucky and Ohio. The blitz, sponsored by the Florida Bat Working Group in conjunction with the Southeastern Bat Diversity Network, was held for the rst time in How are bats doing in Florida? In general, we have a sense in Florida that our common species of eastern United States has not been detected in Florida. The disease is caused by a fungus found in cold caves and affects bats as they hibernate. With Floritheir space. Whats that? You dont think your boat is big enough to go into the Gulf and catch snapper? I sh a Hewes 16-foot Red Fisher, and Ill go anywhere in the Gulf weather considering. Of course Im not planning to do any bill shing, but 12 miles is not out of the question. Just watch the weather. There are plenty of public spots within 1 mile of the beach. If you think these spots are shed out, dont be so sure. Most people sh with tackle too big for the sh they are trying to catch. A friend of mine pulled up on a bridge span where some other fellows were shing. They were using big reels with 80-pound test line, and they were not catching anything. In a short time, my friend had his limit of snapper and the other sherman were amazed. My friend showed them a bass rod with 30-pound test line and 30-pound test leader weighed down with a -ounce lead slid directly on the circle hook with a half cigar minnow for bait. That is South Florida-style shing, which is catching on here in the Panhandle. Use that type of tackle and anchor over a bridge span and chum, and you will become a better sherman overnight. Either buy chum and a bag to put it in and tie it about halfway to the bottom on the anchor line or simply save your bait that is not quite useable from your last shing trip and cut it into small pieces and throw some over the transom every now and then. Then watch what comes to the back of the boat in short order. Tying the chum bag to the anchor line gets the bait down to the sh and not a lot is lost oating off behind the boat. Every time a wave jerks the boat, it shakes a little more chum out of the bag and it is not wasted. Try this method, and Im sure you will be pleased with the results. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.netCaptains fired up over triggerfishing closureBy TINA HARBUCK654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Starting Monday, trigger sh are off the catch list for local shermen. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council announced earlier this week that the recreational harvest of gray trigger sh will close June 11 and will not reopen until Jan. 1, 2013. I dont think theres a need for it, Dawn Patrol Too Capt. Chris Akers said of the closure. You can still nd them. Until then, anglers can keep 10 trigger sh per angler, and the sh has to be 14 inches in length to the fork to keep. Im seeing plenty of them out there, said Capt. Eddie Dykes of the Shamrock II. I wish they would just let us catch the big ones. At least give us a shot at more sh for our customers, he said. Dykes said just last week he was shing at the Timberholes and couldnt get bait down because of the trigger sh bite. I dont see a shortage in them, Dykes said. Plus the change in the middle of the season hurts, because you cant plan for your customers, he said. The closure is not necessary, agreed Capt. Kirk Reynolds of the SS Enterprise. And they dont have the data to back it up. It just reinforces that they panic when we start catching a few, said Capt. Robert Hill of the Twilight, who had a couple of trigger sh on the racks Thursday. There are more trigger sh out there now than I can remember, Hill said. The size limit has worked. Even if the shermen have to release the small ones, The trigger sh is a tough sh, said Capt. Stan Phillips of the Sea Winder. They live real well when released. Trigger sh is not the only shery recently shut down. The greater amberjack shery is closed June 1 to July 31 and will reopen Aug. 1 and go through Dec. 31. The Gulf Coast signature red snapper recently opened up June 1 but is scheduled to close July 10. Also opening in a few days will be the gag grouper. Anglers will be able to catch gag grouper from July 1 to Oct. 31.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012 By CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com Joey Logano has added another win to the record books that makes several this season and 13 for his career, although this is his rst win since 2009 in the Sprint Cup Series. Securing his spot in the pole position for Sundays race, Logano made one of his qualifying laps at 179.598 mph. Logano passed up Mark Martin in the nal three laps to take the lead and then the checkered ag in the Pocono 400. His average speed was an astounding 131.004 mph. But that wasnt the fastest time on the track. At one point, Tony Stewart was clocked going past the start/nish line at 205 mph. On top of winning the Pocono 400, Logano also made the record books at the newly paved track in Pocono.

Special to The Times-AdvertiserThe Florida Nuggets AAU 17U girls basketball team recently placed second in their last super-regional tournament in Augusta, Ga. The Bay County-based Nuggets could not hold out to win their division tournament after playing back-toback games in the championship game against the Georgia Sting.

In the rst game, Marsheba Addison and Amanda Paschal both scored 17 points, Jasmine Belser had 10 points and Hannah Howell had 9 points and 9 rebounds. In the second game, Holmes Countys Hannah Howell came out strong in the rst quarter, hitting three 3s and scoring 25 points and 10 rebounds, Chipleys Amanda Paschal had 13 points and 7 rebounds, and Bay Countys Marsheba Addison had 9 points and 5 rebounds.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A9Special to The Times-AdvertiserBONIFAY Alberta Ingle presented a special program on the history of the Bonifay Womans Club at the Clubs dinner meeting May 21. She told of the clubs origins in 1910 as the Womans Library Association, which later changed its name to become a part of the Florida Federation of Womens Clubs and has been a vital part of the community throughout its history. The Bonifay Womans Club is the oldest civic organization in Holmes County. Ingle has served as president of Bonifay Womans Club more often than anyone else in the clubs history except for W.A. Sessoms, one of the clubs founders, who was president for 30 years, 1910 to 1940. In the clubs modern era, Ingle was president from 1980-1987, then again in 1993-1995 and 1997-2001. She also has served in various other capacities in the club and is currently parliamentarian. In introducing Ingle, Dianne Smith, president of Bonifay Womans Club, said Ingle has truly loved the club for a long time and has been a great example of what it means to serve the community through a civic organization. By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Bonifay Kiwanis Club welcomed the Bethlehem High School robotics class to their May 30 meeting to have them speak about their recent experience as second-place winner and winner of the Judges Choice Award at the STEM TECH Olympiad 2012 battlebot competition. Armed with only their wits and a 120-pound robot named Rhinoceros Prime Engaged, they eagerly traveled the 600 miles to STEM TECH Olympiad 2012, which was hosting the National BOTSIQ nals, said the students math and robotics teacher, Gary Driver. The event was hosted by USATL, the United States Alliance for Technology Literacy. Driver said by Sunday afternoon, Rhinoceros Prime Engaged was the only robot that had not lost a match in the double elimination bracket system of the high school division, which quickly caught and kept the eyes of the judges. Each ght, they had knocked out their opponents, with the longest match lasting about 2 minutes of the 3-minute round; however, they had to beat the robot coming back from the losers bracket to be named champ, Driver said. The Miami high school bot Diesel had lost in the rst round but managed to work its way through the losers bracket and stood in the way of a clean sweep. The rst match went the full 3 minutes, and the judges decision went to Diesel. Driver said because that was Rhinos rst loss, a second 3-minute round was scheduled, and in the second ght against Diesel, neither bot was able to knock out the other. Once again, it went to a judges decision, Driver said. This time it was a split decision, but the victory went to Diesel. Rhinoceros Prime Engaged had come up a little short but enjoyed the second-place standing when during the awards ceremony they were named the Judges Choice Award winner for the best overall robot at the competition. Driver said the Judges Choice Award was more then meets the eye. This is the most coveted award and is based on design, durability, aggression, team spirit and robot ability, he said. We want to thank are the Kiwanis Club of Bonifay, Johnsons Laser works, Holmes Tool and Engineering, Big Daddys and HT Hackney of Opp, Driver said. The students made up the extra money for the robot and trip, one candy bar at a time. We would like to thank all those who supported our candy sales. Also during the meeting, scholarships were presented to students from across Holmes County.Sp P ECia IA L To O THE TiTI MEs S -ADVEr R Tis IS Er RAlberta Ingle, left, and Bonifay Womens Club President Dianne Smith during the clubs May 21 meeting.Ingle gives history of Bonifay Womans ClubCC ECi I Lia IA Sp P Ears ARS | Times-AdvertiserKneeling are Mitchell Anderson, Brandon Justice, Jesse Driver and Robbie Wilhite.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 THG-12901 As we welcome the joys of summer such as swimming, barbequing, and baseball, we have to greet the Texas heat. As temperatures are increasing highs this week were in the lowto mid-90s it is vital to take the necessary precautions to protect pets from heat exhaustion. Although there is not a set temperature that is considered too hot for animals, temperatures in the high-80s and above can pose problems for pets, Dr. Stacy Eckman, lecturer at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) said. She added that, generally, if it is too hot for the pet owner to be outside, it is too hot for the pet. Every pet is different, however, on the temperature they can endure. Cats, for example, are usually more tolerant of the heat than dogs and can often nd a shady place to lounge. It is very dependent on the pet itself. For example, overweight dogs and brachycephalic (short nosed dogs such as bulldogs) are at a greater risk for heat stroke/ exhaustion for even short period of times in warm weather, Eckman said. Eckman said other dogs that have a higher chance of heat exhaustion are those genetically sensitive to the heat and those not acclimated to the heat such as indoor dogs. Both dogs with long, thick coats and those with short, thin coats can become overheated so she recommended taking precautions for all types of dogs. She explained that even dogs who exercise vigorously can become overheated. The perfect example of this is a dog who goes to the dog park on a nice, warm, spring day when they have not been all winter, and they play with a Frisbee disk and run more than normal, Eckman said. She added that this was a common case of heat exhaustion. Eckman said, generally, the rst symptoms of heat exhaustion are lethargy and listlessness. They pant to try to cool themselves and can be anxious as they try to nd a cool place, she said. She added that if pets are outside for too long and become overheated, they can develop diarrhea and vomiting which could lead to shock. If a pet has these symptoms, Eckman recommended taking him/her to a veterinarian immediately for a diagnosis and treatment. She stressed not to put cold water or ice packs on the animal because it makes it harder for them to cool off. To prevent heat exhaustion, Eckman suggested providing shade and fans for pets. She also emphasized the importance of having enough water for pets. Dogs cool themselves by panting and this can dehydrate them, so they will need more water than you may think, Eckman said. It is also crucial to not overwork animals so start slowly when exercising. Take breaks during exercise or play to make sure they cool down and off, Eckman said.ABOUT PET TALKPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

SNYDERCelebrating another Fathers Day without my father, I cannot help thinking of how much has changed since he died. If he were to return today, he would nd things quite different. In all reality, this is not my fathers world anymore. I might just as well say it. This is not my fathers country anymore, either. The country my father loved seems to have all but disappeared. During his time, a deepseated patriotic pride permeated throughout our country. We were proud of what our forefathers had accomplished and we were willing to die to preserve that heritage. Today, it seems the past is simply the past and has no bearing whatsoever on the present. This may be why history books are being rewritten today. This, however, is a fallacy encouraged by those who do not know their right hand from their left hand. In our country today, you are either far right or far left and nothing in between. Whatever happened to people with common sense? Perhaps that ancient anonymous philosopher was right when he said the problem with common sense was that it really was not that common anymore. Perhaps the demise of the common man explains this phenomenon. Or, it could be that most people today have been educated be on their common sensibilities. There was a time in my fathers country when people were proud of what they did. A few tried to get money without working for it. In my fathers country, there was a great deal of pride in working for what you had and not depending on somebody with a handout. In my fathers country, there was a deep sense of accomplishment in earning what you had by the sweat of your brow. The only people sweating these days are politicians up for reelection. In my fathers country, there was no such thing as arbitrary handouts but plenty of hands out. It was considered our patriotic duty to help our neighbor when they were in trouble. Nobody looked to Uncle Sam to solve his or her problems. It was a community affair not a government mandate. In fact, if the truth were known, and evidently it is not, they stayed as far away from Uncle Sam as possible only communicating with him once a year on April 15. In those days, they saluted the ag, recited the Pledge of Allegiance and were right proud to do so. Not one of them could imagine anybody ashamed of doing that in public. Today a lot is being said about the separation of church and state. My father would not understand the way some people are interpreting it. According to what is going on today, they are trying to keep the church out of the state but make good and sure the state runs the church. Isnt that why we had a revolution in the rst place? In my fathers country, there was a separation between government control and people pursuing life, liberty and happiness. Oh, for those good old days. Also, in my fathers country baseball was a national sport not a business. I am not quite sure when it became a business, but my father never thought it was. He often took me to the ball eld on a Saturday afternoon to have fun, enjoy the game and eat the worlds most delicious hotdog. At least he said they were the worlds most delicious hotdogs. Our purpose in going was just to have fun. He did his share of making fun and harassing the other teams fans, but it never crossed his mind to physically beat one of them nearly to death. If I remember correctly, wedgies were the order of the day. When our team won, we celebrated and highved everybody around us. When our team lost, we determined with everything within us to slaughter them the next week on the eld. When we said slaughter, we were talking guratively. Credit was something my fathers generation frowned on. As a young person, I had in my mind to buy a bicycle. I took my father to the store to look at that prized bike. Well, my father stammered, as he looked the bike over. How much money youve got saved for this bike? I knew the lecture that was to follow. If you could not afford to buy something, you could not afford to have it. How many times have I heard that? Perhaps if my father could come back for a day we could send him to Washington, D.C. and explain to them this whole idea that if you cannot afford something you cannot afford something. It seemed to make sense to me, and I was only a young person at the time. I guess when you get older you lose a lot of that good common sense. Then if elected and go to Washington, D.C., you leave all of that good common sense back home with your constituency who wonder what they elected you for. The verse of Scripture that was very important to my father was, And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it (Psalms 90:17 KJV). It may not be the same country my father loved, but I can still operate on the same principles that made him a patriotic father, and pray, Establish thou the work of our hands. Rev. James L.

Every the primordial experience of the languages original speakers. Thus every language is a world view, but also the conditions of making experience intelligible. As Heidegger put it, Language is the house of being. The primorthe Greek word logos which is often translated as word, although the concept of logos is much richer than the English word. Logos is the principle of intelligibility underlying things, but also the bridge between the spiritual realm and the physical realm. Words are concrete, audible and visible expressions of abstract concepts. A word is a materialized idea and thus the concept of Logos or Word was a natural idea to express and explain the second person of the trinity, i.e. Jesus. Understanding this gives one a sense of the sublime power of language to both create and to make the world intelligible.BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010Hwy. 77 S, Chipley 638-4097 Hwy. 79 S., Bonifay 547-9688Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser1364 N.
