But at the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners meeting on June 12, she requested that it be placed on the ballot so county residents can decide for themselves. One of the boards abilities is to place this on the ballot and allow the citizens to decide, but its completely up to the board, Holmes County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. Commissioner Kenneth Williams asked her what she would do if the vote failed. Then I would back off of the matter, Mason said. I might endorse or support someone else that may come along later, but I would back off trying to get it passed for the golf club. Goodman said that they could construct the ordinance however they wanted, with whatever restrictions they would be comfortable with and that the time limit would allow for three meetings to construct and approve of an ordinance in time to place it on the November ballot. Theres my personal opinion and theres my position to support the decision of the people, Williams said. So I say we place it on the ballot and allow the people to decide. Commissioner Jim King said that no matter what that he would be opposed to the idea. The board approved to put on the ballot to extend the hours of alcohol sales to Sunday contingent on the approval of an ordinance that the board found acceptable with a vote of 3 to 2, with Commissioner Phillip Music and King voting no. The Board approved Special to The Times-Advertiser BONIFAY NASA astronaut Andrew Drew Feustel will meet with students in cyberspace as part of the Florida Summer Youth Program on Friday. Feustel will take part in two live streaming video appearances with students at the Holmes County Public Library at 303 N. Etheridge St., Bonifay. The rst session begins at 11:30 a.m. followed by a second session at 2:30 p.m. Speaking from NASAs Johnson Space Center in Houston, Feustel said he hopes to inspire Florida youths to reach for the stars during this years Dream Big events. The question-and-answer format will include information from his two space shuttle missions. Feustel was selected by NASA in July 2000. In 2009, he served on the crew of STS-125, the nal servicing mission for the Hubble Space Telescope. In 2011, he launched aboard space shuttle Endeavours nal mission, STS-134, to the International Space Station. The space ight veteran has logged more than 28 days in space, including 42 hours and 18 minutes during six spacewalks. The Florida Summer Youth Program is an annual collaboration between the State Library and Archives of Florida and public libraries around the state, which provide information, resources and activities for youths during their summer break. The featured space suit will also be available and free to the public for pictures on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information about Feustel and virtual appearances, visit www.nasa. gov/.

Extension of alcohol sales possible on upcoming ballot CECILIA SPEARS | Times-Advertiser The staff of the Holmes County Public Library prepares for the Florida Summer Youth Program, starting with a visit from NASA. Weve landed at Holmes County Public Library HOUSTON: Volume 122, Number 10 By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY How does 7th District Rep. Marti Coley sum up her political career? She does in two simple words hard working. I think I am a very hard-working state representative, says Coley, (R-Marianna). In Tallahassee, people have to establish a reputation, and I think that I have established one as a very hard worker. As an example of her hard work, Coley sites the repeal of the 2010 septic tank inspection law. The law establishing that all Floridians had to have their septic tanks inspected once every ve years was very unpopular in rural areas of the state, and Coley said she worked tirelessly to get the law repealed. The repeal of the 2010 septic tank laws was also applauded by business groups, realtors and home builders, according to tampabay. com. The legislature repealed the law in March. Coley said she led to repeal the septic tank law in 2011, and she said she overheard a lobbyist talking about how she just didnt get it. He was the one who didnt get it, she said. My residents didnt care for the legislation, and they wanted their property rights protected for them it was a huge issue. Coley said once when she visited with Sen. Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) seeking support for her repeal, she told him, I dont think I will be able to go back home and live if we dont get this repeal. Truly this state cant be treated with a one-sizetsall statute. Rural Florida cant be treated the same way as densely populated southern Florida. The size and scope of rural legislators districts is a good example. Coley said in south Florida, there are representatives who have districts which only cover a few blocks of a city. Redistricting has resulted Coley: Hard-working reputation earned See EXTENSION A2 MARTI COLEY 7th District Representative Buying alcohol on Sundays?

Lockouts Master Keying Safe Combinations Changed Locks Rekeyed Deadbolts Installed keeping the 911 Dispatch and 911 Dispatch Director Clint Erickson at their present location and to pay the additional $592 in materials to expand from their contingency fund. Space became an issue with the 911 Dispatch when a grant gave the department $300,000 worth of new equipment as well as additional equipment. The new equipment had to be in place and operational by June 2013, but time was of the essence as their current equipments warranty was running out and the new equipment would have to nd a new storage place till space was acquired. The options were narrowed down to two possibilities: expand their current space or move to the new EOC. The City of Bonifay currently is allowing them to use one of their buildings rent-free and agreed to allow 911 Dispatch to expand as long as dispatch assumed all of the expenses. Several issues arose from remaining in their current building, which included air conditioning as well as time, money and labor to expand. Another issue was that the rst installation 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 that the City of Bonifay had sent a letter stating that additional footage could be added to the building the 911 Dispatch was occupying to accommodate to the additional equipment and the estimated expense to the Board would be $592. Goodman said he would complete the necessary paperwork with the city to get started as soon as possible. This has been a headache since day one, Commissioner Monty Merchant said. Id like to see that all of the information be presented to the board on the rst go so that it can be voted on. County Engineer Cliff Knauer presented the board with a comprehensive list of all the bridges and roads that have been in need of repair, have applied for federal funding for repairs and those that are in the process of being federally funded to be repaired. I suggest that each district select bridges to be submitted to the Florida Department of Transportations Rural Works Program and that if theres any bridges not listed that you inquire about it, Knauer said. Like Mr. Kings bridge on Alford Road wasnt listed, so now weve got to nd out why it wasnt on the list. Williams had Knauer con rm that County Road 177 already had funds set aside and was scheduled to be repaired in the near future. Several representatives from Thompson Tractor Company, Inc., including sales representative Joel Whitehead, were present to suggest that the board consider the Caterpillar Certied Power Train Program. This means that the county graders would be rebuilt from the inside and would include painting, decals and a certi cate showing that the machine was rebuilt with the three-year, 5,000 hour warranty coverage program, if the board chooses. The board agreed to look over the material and give it some consideration. The board approved of Kings request to replace a recently resigned member of the Development Commission with Shirley Hawthorn. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on June 26 at the BOCC building behind the Holmes County Court House. EXTENSION from page A1 By Perry Wells Special To Times-Advertiser BONIFAY Debbie Wilcox Morris, supervisor of elections for Holmes County, reports no surprise developments as the of cial qualifying time expired at noon on June 8. Morris is the only incumbent who drew no opposition. There are a variety of races to be determined, with some results being nal in August and some going on to November. There will also be some primary contests that are limited to only those registered with a particular party and some universal primary contests in which all registered voters can cast a ballot. Qualifying in the Republican primary for sheriff are incumbent Tim Brown and former sheriff Dennis Lee. The two of them will meet in the Aug. 14 primary, with the winner facing no party af liation candidate John Braxton Jr. in the Nov. 6 general election. With the upcoming retirement of Cody Taylor, a crowded eld of seven seeks to be the new clerk of the Circuit Court. Three Democrats, Zachary R. White, Lee Moss and Kyle Hudson, will be on the Aug. 14 ballot, with the top votegetter in that contest moving on the Nov. 6 general election to face Republican Don W. Hersman Jr. and NPA candidates John King Jr., Marsha Farmer Sherrouse and Timothy H. Wells. A plurality of votes could determine the outcome of that contest. The election for property appraiser has Democrat incumbent Otis Corbin Jr. being challenged by Republican Felecia Fisanick. That race will be decided in the November general election. The tax collector race has two Democrats only. Incumbent Harry Bell will face former tax collector Fran Fuller. That race will be determined by the Aug. 14 election, with all registered voters eligible to participate. In the superintendent of schools post, announced candidate Jody Long withdrew from the race prior to the dates for of cial qualifying. This leaves Democrats Buddy Lee Brown and Eddie Dixon to run in the Aug. 14 primary, with the winner facing Republican Terry Mears in November. Four candidates are vying for the Board of County Commissioners District 1 seat. Republicans Charles Chuck Aronhalt, Stephen Herrington III and Bobby Sasnett will each appear on the August primary ballot, with the winner facing Democrat incumbent Jim King in the November general election. A similar situation exists in County Commission District 3. Republicans David Whitaker and former commissioner Jerry Cooley will appear on the Aug. 14 ballot, with the winner facing Democrat incumbent Phillip Music in November. An unusual situation exists in the County Commission District 5 race. All ve candidates are Democrats, and all will be on the Aug. 14 ballot. Incumbent Ron Monk, along with Kristen Marell, J. Wayne Marsh, Bill Parrish and former commissioner Harold Smith will face each other, and all registered voters can cast a ballot in this race. There are two school board seats up for election this year. Both District 2 incumbent Gary Scott and District 4 incumbent Anthony Register have opted to not run. Vying to replace Scott are Wilburn G. Baker, Debbie Kolmetz and Andrea Schiller. In the event a candidate does not get a majority of votes in that non-partisan race, the two top vote-getters will then appear on the November ballot. Vying to replace Register are candidates Shay McCormick and Shirley Owens. The winner of that race will be determined in August. All county voters are eligible to vote in school board races. In addition, all Holmes County voters may vote in the Aug. 14 state attorney primary, where both candidates are Republicans. Incumbent Glenn Hess is challenged for the post by former state attorney Jim Appleman. Republicans only will participate in the District 5 House of Representative primary, where incumbent Marti Coley of Marianna faces a challenge from David Glidewell of DeFuniak Springs. The winner of that contest will face NPA candidate T.W. Pitts and writein candidate Eddy Holman in November. HOLMES COUNTY: End of election qualifying brings no surprises

There were 794,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of 9,262,000. The May 2012 rate fell 0.1 percentage point from the month-ago rate of 8.7 percent and was 2.0 percentage points lower than the year ago rate of 10.6 percent. The U.S. unemployment rate was 8.2 percent in May. Floridas seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7,323,000 in May 2012, an increase of 5,300 jobs over the month. The number of jobs in the state was up 53,800 over the year, an increase of 0.7 percent from May 2011. May was the 22nd consecutive month with positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for three years. The unemployment rate in the Chipola Workforce Region was 7.4 percent in May 2012. This was 0.9 percent lower than the regions year ago rate. In May 2012 the regions unemployment rate was 1.1 percentage points below the state rate of 8.5 percent. Out of a labor force of 50,735 there were 3,777 unemployed region residents. The regions workforce increased by 770 in May 2012 over April 2012. UNEMPLOYMENT RATES May-12 Apr-12 May-11 Calhoun 8.0 7.8 9.1 Holmes 6.9 6.6 7.7 Jackson 7.0 6.8 7.3 Liberty 6.7 6.4 8.4 Washington 8.9 8.8 10.3 Chipola Region 7.4 7.3 8.3 Holmes jobless rate dips to 6.9 percent in May in District 5 being merged with District 7, and Rep. Brad Drake (R-Eucheenana) wont be seeking re-election this year so Coley can have her final term as representative for the newly configured District 7 which will include Washington and Holmes counties. Coley, 51, is a native of Blountstown and a graduate of Chipola Junior College and longtime resident of Jackson County. She was a teacher in Thomasville, Ga., before moving to Marianna in 1985 with her husband, David. She began teaching at Malone High School and remained there until 1989, when she moved to Chipola College as an instructor. She has been teaching at the college for 20 years. She was first elected to the state House of Representatives on June 14 2005 to complete her husbands term after he died in March 2005. She has held the office since. One of the biggest challenges we face is the economy, Coley said. We need to make sure we make every effort to bring jobs to our area and our state. We also have to challenge the old notion that manufacturing jobs are lowpaying. That isnt the case with manufacturing today. More good, high-paying jobs are needed to strengthen the economy, and Coley said she wants to make the state more attractive to businesses. We dont need the government having an anti-business attitude. We dont need to be doing things to drive business away no one should have to wait two years for a permit, for example, she said. One of the biggest boons to attracting business was doing away with the states Department of Community Affairs, and turning its duties over to the Department of Economic Opportunity. Even the name is better, Coley said. The focus was changed from what can we do to stop you from opening a business to how can we help you? It was a world of difference. Coley said her focus if she is elected for another term will be to continue to focus on keeping government both limited and efficient. We dont need to be raising taxes, and we need to live within our means, she said. We as a government dont need to be looking at all the stuff we want then go out and raise taxes to get it. We need to keep to a budget. While Coley says having gambling establishments in a county should be up to the voters, she doesnt think gambling is a good bet for the economy. I just dont think we should be basing our economy on it. I sure wouldnt want to see Florida become LasVegas. She said although it could be a divisive issue, the crux of the matter is jobs. People are concerned about the economy and they want to have jobs for their children. One lesson learned from the BP crisis was that depending on one source of income for a region can be a fatal mistake, Coley said. The more diverse the economy is the more stable it will be, she said, and in the Panhandle there is tourism, agriculture, education and manufacturing. One of our strengths in the Panhandle is that we work as a region. Our communities work together to make a better county, and our counties work together to make a stronger region. We collaborate and we get the job done. COLEY from page A1

American Board of Family Medicine, State of Alabama and the State of Florida Hundreds turned out to pay tribute to James Edward McFatter, better known as Coach Mac, Thursday night and Friday at First Baptist Church in Bonifay. He passed away Wednesday after suffering a massive stroke the night before. This simple man grew up in Bonifay and lived here all his 79 years except for a four-year stint in the U.S. Navy and the four years spent in Tallahassee obtaining a degree at Florida State University. Yet he had a positive inuence on perhaps thousands of lives. He was probably best known as a basketball coach, but he coached every sport, taught driver education all over the county, and physical education at Bonifay Elementary. He organized many activities such as bike-a-thons and eld days involving youth. My earliest recollection of James Edward was in 1951 when Jack and I moved to Bonifay. We had an apartment in the home of Terrell and Stella Creel who lived just across the street from Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Swindle (Videll) and her son, James, whose father had died when he was two years old. There was no TV in those days and in the evenings wed sit on the screen porch and talk or wed sit by the re inside and talk. Many nights wed be sitting and wed here this young man walking by either whistling or singing. We knew that James Edward was returning from basketball practice, church choir practice, BYPU, or some school function. Diane Williams Smith recalled James Edward as a teen a few years older than she. Her age group admired what a good dancer he was as they would all be at The Green Lantern. She supposed that Madaline was his dance partner. When my children were elementary school age, coach Mac taught them to swim as he worked in the summer recreational program. He drove the school bus to Lake Geneva or Chuck and Eddies for that. As they reached high school age, he often drove the church bus to carry them on youth trips. I recall a trip to Ridge Crest, North Carolina, and his fearlessly driving us up those winding mountain roads. Then, on the way home he kept up our morale as we waited on the side of a mountain for help when the bus broke down. Though he was so involved in the community, his family was not neglected. Son Jedd spoke at his funeral of what a loving husband and father he was. He treated his wife Madaline as if she were royalty, while encouraging her to develop her own potential. (Madaline Steverson McFatter herself is another story worthy of many words.) As competitive as McFatter was, Jedd recalled loving to play any kind of game with his dad whether it was checkers, chess, marbles, or basketball. Though he never let the kids win, he taught them sportsmanship. Alex Vara, a young lady who spent a semester in Bonifay last fall working on a college assignment and writing her experiences in her Dad, Renns, hometown as her senior project, ew in from Massachusetts for the funeral. Coach Mac had made a lasting impression on her. He told her while giving her a tour of Bonifay and surrounding area that every child should learn to play marbles. Nothing teaches eye/hand coordination or friendly competition better. She also told of her experience of shing with him and Jackie Baggett after the coach taught her the forehand ip, the backhand lob, and the slingshot using a cane pole. After high school graduation and two years in college, McFatter joined the U.S. Navy where he excelled in volleyball. For the two years he played, 1957 and 1958, he made the All Navy team both years. At Florida State College he was a two time member of the All American Collegiate team. In 1985 he was inducted into FSU Hall of Fame for his prowess in volleyball. Brother-in-law, the Rev. Ike Steverson, drew laughter from those congregated at First Baptist Church where James Edward had attended since a child of eight. He started singing in the choir at that age and continued to do so until the Sunday before his death. He taught Sunday School, Discipleship training, and Royal Ambassadors. He was also an active deacon, a Gideon, and had served on numerous church committees. Ike told of being a student of Macs when he was courting Madaline. As a result of that romantic interest, Ike was given a ride home from football or basketball practice many days. The coach claimed to like the well water out in the country at the Steversons, but brother Ike was sure there was more than water that drew the young coach. Many things were said and could be said about this man who lived out his Christian faith before his family, his friends and his community. The number of people attending the services attested to the high regard and the love for this unassuming man. Our condolences and our prayers go out to Madaline, Jedd, Joni, Jana, Jill, and J.J. along with the 14 grandchildren and the other family members in your loss. We will all miss his smiling face and his warm greeting. Jackie Baggett has lost his shing buddy and weve all lost a friend.

The 14-day period begins with the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More and ends on Independence Day. Locally, a Prayer Service for Religious Freedom will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. beginning Thursday at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, 2331 Highway 177-A, in Bonifay and continuing every evening Monday through Saturday until July 4. On June 14, Flag Day, the Catholic bishops of Florida urged the faithful and others of good will to stand together to protect our sacred and shared right to religious freedom. In a joint statement, the bishops of Florida call for the Fortnight for Freedom. This period of time is dedicated to prayer, study and action to defend against recent challenges to religious freedom and ensure the ongoing protection of religious liberty. Culminating on Independence Day, this special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action will emphasize both our Christian and American heritage of liberty. Dioceses and parishes around the country have scheduled special events that support a great national campaign of teaching and witness for religious liberty. Some recent threats to religious freedom include the HHS mandate to provide coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization and contraception; forcing Catholic foster care and adoption services to shut down for refusal to place children with samesex couples; state immigration laws that forbid pastoral care of undocumented immigrants; discrimination against Catholic humanitarian services for victims of human traf cking for refusal to refer for abortion services, according to the bishops. As bishops, we are called to be authentic teachers of our faith and steadfast witnesses to the love of Christ, even in the face of controversy and great debate. It is this responsibility that moves us to jointly and urgently appeal to the Catholic faithful and others of good will to stand together to preserve and protect our human and civil right to religious freedom, which is being diminished and marginalized today on many fronts, the bishops said in a news release. This 14-day period is a special time for prayer and commitment on behalf of our beloved country and in support of our God-given right, which no government has the authority to take from us. Let us pray in thanksgiving for our heritage of religious freedom, re ect on attempts to limit this most cherished liberty and have the courage to take positive action, the bishops said in their statement. Religious freedom is our rst civil freedom rst in the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution, according to the bishops statement. This sacred right belongs to us all. It is the basis of our democracy and the very reason that early settlers ed to our protecting shores. We must never take for granted this right for which so many before us fought and gave their lives. If you have any further questions, please call Mike DeRuntz at 614-1082. Everyone is welcome to join in with pray and petition for the protection of our religious liberties. By TOM McLAUGHLIN Florida Freedom Newspapers Unless something changes soon, on July 18 the Air Armament Center at Eglin Air Force Base will cease to exist. Thats the day presently designated for the stand down. And if the Air Force continues to move forward with consolidation plans announced last year, the 96th Test Wing which incorporates the 46th Test Wing and 96th Air Base Wing will be activated in its place. Brig. Gen. David A. Harris, now the vice commander of the Air Armament Center, is to head the 96th Test Wing, according to Eglin spokesman Andy Bourland. Harris will report to a two-star general headquartered at Edwards Air Force Base in California. Eglins own Maj. Gen. Kenneth Merchant will be responsible to the soon to be stood up organization, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, according to Bourland. As the bases program executive of cer for weapons, Merchant will report to the Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition in Washington, D.C., and have no in uence in decisions regarding the 96th Test Wing. Gen. Merchant told me two months ago Ill be a tenant on the base, said Rocky Tasse, who represents the American Federation of Government Employees Local 1942 at Eglin. Although the Air Forces recently announced decision to leave Merchant at Eglin was applauded, nearly every other aspect of the consolidation effort is being rigorously opposed by local of cials and Floridas state and federal lawmakers. My suspicion is that the Air Force is up to no good, said state Sen. Don Gaetz of Niceville. Like many people, Gaetz believes the Air Force brass is scheming to move Eglins valuable research, development, testing and evaluation mission to California. They think having the 96th Test Wing commander report to a two-star general at Edwards is the rst step. I believe there are forces within the Air Force who have long waited to diminish missions and drain the importance of our base, Gaetz said. I think those forces are still alive and well, and we need to sleep with one eye open. David Goetsch, the president of Okaloosa Countys Economic Development Council and head of a state task force set up to protect Floridas military installations, said its not just Air Force generals trying to wrest away Eglins missions. The RDT&E mission is an economic driver that lures welleducated workers to high paying jobs. The aerospace industry has brought billions of dollars to Northwest Florida economies. The Southern California delegation in Congress has been after our assets for their economic development for years, Goetsch said. Thats why the battle for the RDT&E component has continued despite 112 different studies that have shown Eglin to be the best suited for weapons and armament testing, Goetsch said. Even when the Air Force announced that Merchant would stay at Eglin, U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller and Okaloosa Countys own Defense Support Initiative group noted that it also was stripping him of his leadership over the Air Armament Center. It is important to note that Gen. Merchants newly announced title consists of only half of his current title, Miller said in a re-cent guest column in the Daily News. Miller has introduced language in the 2013 Defense Authorization Act which, he said in the column, will explicitly require the Air Force to keep the Air Armament Center at Eglin. The language passed the House, but the bill continues to languish in the Senate. At the time the Air Force announced Merchants change in responsibilities, Miller called for it to slow down its moves toward consolidation which have actually been pushed forward to July from the originally scheduled October. I believe it is reckless for Air Force of cials to continue dismantling the Air Armament Center while facing down the possibility that my legislative language will become law, he said in his guest column. Reversing their actions will cost far more than simply halting them in place and committing to compliance with existing law, Miller said. Okaloosas Defense Support Initiative argues with Miller that in 2005, BRAC designated Eglin as the Air Forces research, development acquisition, testing and evaluation center. The Defense Support Initiative said in a statement of its own that it maintains a strong interest in, and continues to await, a business case analysis of the ef ciencies expected by the reorganization proposals from the Air Force. Goetsch said the political push from Northwest Florida to keep the Air Armament Center has not gone unnoticed in Washington, D.C. Dates for stand downs at the Air Armament Center and other Air Force centers, originally pushed up from October to May, have been moved back to July. There are some indications the dates could be pushed back again. This delay does show working the public side of this is having an effect, Goetsch said. Church to raise awareness of religious freedoms GUEST COLUMN Of cials still leery of plans for Eglin Although the Air Forces recently announced decision to leave Maj. Gen. Kenneth Merchant at Eglin was applauded, nearly every other aspect of the consolidation effort is being rigorously opposed by local of cials and Floridas state and federal lawmakers.

There is a mystery that has crept upon us, and so slowly that few have noticed. The mystery is a sh we catch almost every time we bottom sh. Over Destin way it is called mingo. In this area it is referred to as beeliner. The ofcial name is vermillion snapper. Vermillion, by the way, means red. But these are not red snapper. When we shed the Gulf during the 1950s we caught beeliners along with everything else, but they weighed about a half-pound. They were great grouper and king mackerel bait. Sometimes when we caught a bunch some would dry up in the bottom of the boat and I would throw them overboard and they would oat away behind the boat. They wouldnt oat very far before a king mackerel would strike them. They were very good king bait dead or alive and still are good grouper or king bait. The thing that catches my eye is how big the vermillion snapper have grown during the past 10-20 years. I saw a paper the other day with a picture of all the sh that had been caught on a head boat. From bow to stern all you could see was red. The story was about the opening of snapper season, and this particular picture was intended to show how many snapper you could catch if you went along on the next trip. The only problem was that all these sh were vermillion snapper. There must have been 100 sh hanging over the rail, but only one out of the bunch was a red snapper. The question is, Where did all these big vermillion snapper come from? They certainly werent here years ago. When I worked in the oil patch running a standby boat in the 1970s and 1980s I caught vermillion snapper of this size in about 240 feet of water. I would bring some home and people would have to look twice because they thought they were red snapper. Im not complaining, but I would like to know how such a tiny sh became so large and no one noticed. The world record by the way is 7 pounds, 3 ounces, and was caught in the Gulf of Mexico. The thing that catches my eye is how big the vermillion snapper have grown during the past 10-20 years. I saw a paper the other day with a picture of all the fish that had been caught on a head boat. From bow to stern all you could see was red. Wednesday, June 20, 2012 OUTD OO RS Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net By VALERIE GARMAN 229-7843 | @valeriegarman vgarman@starfl.com Meg Lamont describes the night shift at the Fish Inn on Cape San Blas as similar to being a new parent sleep is rare, and you never know what to expect. The Fish Inn is not a motel or bed and breakfast; its the home-base for the Universi ty of Florida Marine Turtle Research Group, an organization dedicated to protecting the threatened and endangered sea turtle species that nest in Northwest Florida. Lamont, who oversees the program, has been tagging sea turtles on St. Joseph Penin sula since 1998, and new satellite tagging tech nology has allowed more insight into a turtles journey than ever before. With the help of University of Florida biolo gist Brail Stephens and a house full of college interns from across the country, every night from May to August is spent patrolling the beach, from the Stump Hole to the southern boundary of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, for nesting sea turtles to tag. The group at the Fish Inn is essentially nocturnal, spending their nights surveying the beach on ATVs with red headlights from sunup to sundown, their eyes peeled for movement in the sand. Its sort of like being a new parent when you work this job, Lamont said. When you do sleep its just two hours here, two hours there. Last week, the group satellite-tagged 10 sea turtles on the Cape as part of an oil spill research project in the Gulf. The high-tech sat ellite tags provide a turtles exact GPS coordi nates when the turtle comes up for air. Although nesting female turtles have been known to return to nest within ve kilometers of where they previously nested during their nest ing period, Lamont said GPS tracking the nest ing females has shown something unexpected. Its the rst time weve been able to see what the turtles are doing during their nesting periods, Lamont said. These guys are go ing 100 to 150 kilometers away. Its not whats expected. She said many of the turtles that have nested on the Cape have shown up in Alabama, where oil spill research also is being done with satel lite tracking. Although the group works mostly with log gerhead turtles, a threatened species, they also see endangered green sea turtles on Cape San Blas. We dont know very much about turtles once theyre in the water or where they go once they leave the beach, said Lamont, who noted satellite tracking has helped to show where the their habitats lie and what paths they take to get there, information that is essential for pro tecting the species. GPS trackers have provided insight into the turtles foraging grounds, typically located in Southwest Florida and off the Yucatan Penin sula in Mexico. Their foraging areas have all been shal low-water, inshore areas, Lamont said. When youre looking to protect turtles, its equally if not more important than protecting their nest ing area. The turtles have such an intimate relation ship with the inshore environment its so dynamic. Although technology and research has im proved, it is still difcult to know whether the turtle population is increasing or declining. Its difcult to tell with turtles because theyre long-lived, Lamont said. When I rst came (to this area) there were a lot of nests, and it declined, but it declined nationally. In the past few years, weve seen an increase. Lamont said they have seen more nests on the Cape this year than ever before, with 25 turtles tagged this season and the peak nesting season still approaching. Lamont started tagging turtles more than a decade ago as a dissertation project while studying at the University of Florida and esti mates more than 500 turtles have been tagged since then. She began using ipper tags, small metal tags with a serial number that clamp to a tur tles ipper, a process the group still uses in ad dition to satellite tagging. I came to do my dissertation and I just never left, she said. It started with two of us tagging in ve kilometers of Eglin it just got more and more interesting. She said every day is an adventure for the research group on the Cape. In 2010, a 9-foot alligator took up residence on their survey path and hissed and growled at the interns as they rode by. Theyve seen bears and bobcats, tons of storms, broken down vehicles and vehicles stuck in the sand. The beach is also patrolled every morning from 6:30-11 a.m. by a group of volunteers who mark nests and gather information to track the hatching success of the turtles. Sea turtles nest about every two to three years and nest several times during that nest ing year, Lamont said, so the group often sees the same tagged turtle several times a year, and sometimes years later. Lamont remembered one turtle she has seen about 13 or 14 times through the years. She even remembered the serial number on her tag. Every year you want to see what turtles will come, Lamont said. Its like youre seeing an old friend.

Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A7 Wednesday, June 20, 2012 Local By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com This weeks race really wasnt all that exciting, unless you are a Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan then it was a great race. But as many of you know, I am not a Junior fan I am a Tony Stewart fan. But like any other sport, you win some and you lose some. We will go into that later. This was Juniors rst win in 143 races. Little Es last win came in Michigan in June 2008. Can he keep up the winning in Sonoma this weekend? We will see. There were a lot of the drivers having engine issues. Kyle Busch and Josh Wise had to leave the race because of their engines overheating. Wise wasnt out there long before his hopes of a win ended in lap 10, when his engine blew for the second caution of the day. The rst was when Kurt Busch hit the wall in lap 2. He also caused the caution on lap 121 by hitting the wall for caution six. Cautions three and four were completion cautions, so adjustments could be made on the cars. Caution ve came in lap 82 for debris on the track. Then something kind of rare happened: the NASCAR ofcials got out of their clean-up trucks and picked the debris up by hand. Caution seven came out in lap 127 when the star of the last couple of weeks, Joey Logano, hit the wall hard and had to be taken to the ineld care center as a precaution. He also took Kasey Kahne along for the ride into that wall. The eighth and nal caution of the 200-lap Quicken Loans 400 came out when Denny Hamlins engine exploded. Now, to the stuff circulating on the web about Stewart and Junior they are buddies, and I feel like they probably rigged up the whole thing before the race. And if it wasnt, then I totally agree with what Tony said: Its not a national holiday just because he won. I am sure he was upset about coming in second, but wouldnt you be? Now on to something else. Kurt Busch has harassed yet another reporter. This time it was Marty Smith from ESPN. Come on, Kurt, youre a good driver just keep your mouth shut and fulll your obligations so you can get a sponsor. James Finch has given you another chance. I would suggest you take it and be thankful for it. You have the potential to win in Sonoma. Just make it a repeat of last year. Keep your head held high, Kurt, and you can put this all behind you. Until next week, NASCAR fans. Junior ends winless streak RESULTS FROM MICHIGAN 1. Dale Earnhardt Jr. 2. Tony Stewart 3.

For 16-year-old Bailey Reese, her trip to Europe will be a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity. Bailey is one of 21 Americans selected by Coca-Cola to carry the Olympic ame during the 2012 Olympic Torch Relay that ends July 27 in London. Im very excited and really nervous, too, Bailey said. Im looking forward to seeing everything. Its so cool to be able to go to another country and be able to actually carry a torch and see all the different historical sites and how they do things. I think this is a huge honor, she said. I never thought I would be doing something this big in my entire life. Bailey was selected as part of Coca-Colas Live Positively program, which encourages people to improve their community and live healthy. When she was 7, Bailey founded a nonprot organization called Hero Hugs after Hurricane Ivan in 2004 when she saw residents treat service members rudely as they distributed emergency supplies. The organization has since sent out 75,000 care packages to U.S. military members around the world. There will be 8,000 torch bearers who will carry the Olympic Torch through 1,019 communities over a 70-day period. Bailey will carry the torch on July 10, the 53rd day of the relay, and run about one-fth of a mile through the village of Bisham along the Thames River. To get ready for the run, the YMCA of Niceville has given Bailey a free membership and has staff working with the Florida Virtual School student to get her ready. Her mother, Diana Reese, said she still does not know who nominated Bailey to carry the torch. We didnt know anything about it until we got the phone call from them, and it was really funny because initially I thought it was a joke, Diana Reese said. Were still in awe. Its not even real yet. Niceville girl to carry Olympic ame BAILEY REESE LEE MAKES DEANS LIST BES announces Tropicana speech winners BONIFAY Bonifay Elementary School held a 4-H Tropicana speech competition on May 17. BES fourth-grade speech winners were rst place Ian Sallas, second place Bryce Etheridge and third place Trevor Simmons.

By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian brianh@crestviewbulletin.com C R EST V IE W When Ken Phelps, a sales consultant at Lee Chrysler Dodge Jeep, stepped out of his south Crestview home on June 12, an unpleasant sur prise awaited him: a swarm of ying ants had settled into his neighborhood overnight. Theyre all over my house and my white car, Phelps said. Then when he got to work, even more were waiting, covering many of the vehicles on the dealer ships used car lot. I dont know what they are, dealership manager Howell Larry said. Ive never seen anything like that: kind of a cross be tween an ant and a termite. It makes it hard to sell a car. Theyre all in the cracks in the doors. If we open the door to show a customer, theyre going to get inside the car. While the staff at the Chrysler dealership pon dered what to do, workers arriving at Williams Com munications off P.J. Adams Parkway found swarms of the critters all over their front door. Neighboring companies also found in festations had settled in overnight. Theyre a breed of ying ant, said Jason Howard, a technician with Spears Pest Control. We didnt have a winter. We didnt have any consecutive days with a freeze for anything to go into a dormant stage. Were seeing them all over. With out a winter in Florida, this is what happens. After photos and speci mens of the bugs were ex amined at Spears ofce, they were identied as male Florida carpenter ants. We typically see the fe males, but these are male swarmers, Howard said. Other area pest control services also saw a spike in calls from residents and businesses after the torren tial rains of the past week end let up. Ants will burrow dur ing a drought situation, but whenever theres a huge amount of rain, the ants come to the surface be cause theres more mois ture on the surface, said Michael Cadenhead of Ca denhead Services Pest Con trol. When they swarm, theyre trying to start a new colony. Cadenhead said the start of summer is generally also the swarming season for termites and ants. A large swarm, attracted by ood lights, recently settled on Durell Lee Parks balleld during a game, he said. For tunately, he said the ants seen around Crestview are more of a bother than a hazard. If anything theyre a nuisance, he said. Theyre attracted to lights. Typi cally, if people are trying to avoid having a bad case of them around their home, the best thing to do is to turn their lights off and pull the blinds.

Hess emphasizes link between violent crime, drugs By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY State Attorney Glenn Hess was the guest speaker for the June 13 Bonifay Kiwanis Club meeting. He spoke on the violent effects of drugs on communities, one example being the murder of local woman Mia Shay Brown by Johnny Mack Sketo Calhoun. Im going to be talking about the Johnny Mack Sketo Calhoun case, Hess said. I understand that he has a momma who loves him, he certainly has a daddy that loves him and this is a tragedy to be losing his son to the prison system. It is also a tragedy for the Brown family having lost a wonderful daughter like Mia. At the root of this crime, Hess said, were drugs. The rst drug Hess discussed was marijuana. One of those things about people who smoke marijuana, by and large we dont have violent crimes, but we dont have must productivity, Hess said. Then we talk about the other drugs, the cocaine, the crack cocaine, the methamphetamines, designer drugs, proscription drugs, now were talking about a whole new breed of cat. Its of great concern to a prosecutor, and it should be a great concern to you. Hess said drugs have a drastic effect on the users. We all understand about crack cocaine and the powered cocaine, but methamphetamines, they do a lot of things to people, Hess said. First of all, they make you ugly. Youve seen the pictures of a pretty young girl, and it shows the progression of the effect that this drug has on her body. Why anyone would want to do that to themselves is beyond me. Hess said those who use methamphetamines are also are capable of committing violent crimes, using the Calhoun murder trial as an example. You are all probably familiar with the case, said Hess. Mia worked at a convenience store in Esto. She had a friend named Brittney, and Brittney had a boyfriend by the name of Johnny Mack Sketo Calhoun. Calhoun, from all accounts, was a upstanding young person when he was in high school, but Hess said he had learned through the course of the investigation that Calhoun would go to a place in Alabama, out in the woods where he had a campsite, and cook methamphetamines. Hess said the location was safe for cooking methamphetamines because it was remote. We saw when the trailer was searched that it was obvious that he would sit in his mobile home and he would cook the methamphetamines on a spoon, and then he would inject himself with methamphetamines, Hess said. While he was doing methamphetamines, he was obviously watching pornography. When I was in Sunday school, they used to have a song called Be Careful Little Eyes What You See, because what you see corrupts your mind and once your mind is corrupted, then it will corrupt your hands, Hess said. Thats what happened to Johnny Mack. Besides taking methamphetamines, hed start watching these things, and I can imagine that things went like this: Mia and his girlfriend were friends, they knew each other. It was getting closer to Christmas, Hess said, and neither Brittney nor Calhoun had a car. Brittney had to borrow her fathers truck whenever she needed a ride. Johnny Mack was suppose to go over to Brittneys house so they could go Christmas shopping and do those Christmas things with her and her child, Hess said. Mia, being the nice person that she was, realized Johnny Mack couldnt get to his girlfriends house, and she decided that wasnt right. So she decided to volunteer to give him a ride. Meanwhile, Calhoun was sitting at his trailer doing what he was doing and looking at what he was looking, and obviously he got the idea that maybe he wanted to be with Mia Brown, Hess said. Of course well all know the rest of the story. He kept her in that trailer, bound up, her blood was found all over that trailer in little pieces and parts, and his blood was found in that trailer and on the bed. Hess explained how investigators learned Brown was kept in the trailer from 9:30 p.m. to at least 4 a.m. She was then taken to Alabama before dawn, and we know that by noon that day, she had died a horrible death, Hess said. Its one of those things that you wonder how a human being could do that to someone else; burn someone alive. The answer to that is that youre on methamphetamines. He said if someone was to go through the cases lawyers have seen in Florida, they will nd that a lot of reported violent crimes, the nonsensical crimes, the cruel crimes all have the usual factor of methamphetamines. If its not methamphetamines, then we frequently have the designer drugs, Hess said. These are the bath salts youve read about. These bath salts not only give people LSD-type hallucinations, they kind of give them a kind of superhuman strength. One particular case, Hess said, happened recently in Bay County. He said a Bay County sheriffs deputy had been called to the airport to subdue a passenger who had overdosed on bath salts, and the emergency medical technicians couldnt get him on a gurney to transport him to the hospital. So the deputy had to do everything he could just to get the passenger into the back of the patrol car. The deputy had turned his dash camera around so he could keep an eye on his aggressive passenger. There was a radar detector machine in the backseat, and the deputy said he had seen the man, still handcuffed, use his teeth to rip the radar machine off of where it was and shake it back and forth like your dog would do with a sock. This superhuman strength takes two or three deputies just to hold someone down, Hess said. These are the scary things that are happening in our community. One of the crazy things about these bath salts are that you can go to Walmart and pick up a gallon tub of bath salts for a couple bucks, and if you go to one of these head shops in Panama City Beach, theyll try to sell you bath salts in these little tiny packages for $40, and then theyll tell you they didnt know it was illegal. Hess said bath salts is just a name that was given to the fake methamphetamines so they could be sold legally. The law recently has found ways of making these new designer drugs illegal in most states, including Florida. When people start talking about the legalization of drugs and the humanization of drugs, you have to recognize that its society that pays the price for the use of drugs in our community, Hess said. If were not dealing with the violent drugs and the results of those violent drugs, then were dealing with the nonproductivity of the marijuana smokers. I cant imagine how someone whos going through either high school or college could do that when theyre doing marijuana. They say it doesnt hurt anybody, and maybe it doesnt, but then again it doesnt help them excel either. GLENN HESS

In spite of what many might think, though the state announced it might close the Ponce de Leon Springs State Park in 2010, it is still going strong, with an average of more than 1,000 visitors per week. The park is named after Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon, who led the rst Spanish expedition to Florida in 1513 searching for the Fountain of Youth. Though the crisp, clear waters of the Ponce de Leon Springs wont make you forever young, the older generation of the area say they feel like a kid again when they visit the old swimmin hole. However, the old swimmin hole has changed quite a bit over the ages. Before the Ponce de Leon Springs became a recreational area, it was a source of drinking water for the European settlers and American Indians. The land surrounding the springs was used for harvesting timber and turpentine, which was the majority of the industry for that area. The longleaf pines were a perfect source of timber for building homes, businesses and the railroad that would be crucial for developing the Florida we know today. Those pines were also a good resource for turpentining, the process of cutting deep grooves in the bark to cause it to pour resin, which was used in the making of glue, ink, paint, varnishes, sealants for wood homes and many other useful products. The earliest recorded owners were the Smithgall family, who owned the spring in the 1920s and built it to be a tourist attraction and recreational destination. The Smithgall family built a bathhouse, concession stand and skating rink, installed a large slide and created a barrier around the spring to prevent erosion. Though a lot has changed since the Florida Park Service inducted the springs as a state park on Dec. 21, 1970, many things remain the same. The springs are still a major draw, with water temperatures maintaining a constant 68 degrees with a continual feed of 14 million gallons per day by two underground water ows and caves for exploring. Visitors also are drawn by the natural features, such as nature trails with seasonal Ranger-guided tours, picnicking in the park with grills and pavilions available to the public, shing opportunities for catsh, largemouth bass, chain pickerel and pansh and even the occasional wedding. One attraction the park is striving to add because of popular demand is camping, according to Ponce de Leon Springs State Park INDEX Society .................................

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Ranger Aaron Miller. Theres a lot to factor in when developing camping grounds, Miller said. Theres the natural balance that must be maintained, and then theres accommodating to the visitors. I know with further study well be able to nd a happy median for the two. Another signicant aspect to the state park, far from the public eye, is the natural phenomenon that sets Ponce de Leon Springs State Park from every other state park in Florida, the Sarracenia purpurea, commonly known as the pitcher plant. Miller said Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is the rst Florida state park to have these plants thrive. The pitcher plant is a carnivore, acquiring most of its nutrients from its prey, which is primarily ants, ies, spiders, moths and even mosquitoes, and is more commonly found in the northern region. Both digestive enzymes and bacteria aid the digestion of prey, and as the pitcher leaves grow older, the community of bacteria assists the plant in digestion. Miller said the red pitcher plant is especially rare in this area, especially because the normal pitcher plants known for taking up root in Florida are the purple pitcher plants. Funny thing is we have a hard time growing the red pitcher plants, but the purple pitcher plants love the marshy areas and particularly prefer the type of moss that grows there, Miller said. We have two other ones that are common here on the park, the trumpet pitcher plants and the parrot pitcher plants. The park is also home to numerous Gopherus polyphemus, commonly known as the gopher tortoise. Gopher tortoises are known for their burrows that help shelter more than 360 other species. The gopher tortoise is now under the protection of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. There are stringent laws and procedures developers must go through to build on gopher tortoise inhabited lands because of the rapid destruction of the species in careless development. Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is open 365 days out of the year from 8 a.m. until sunset. Entrance fees are $4 per vehicle with up to eight people, $2 per individual, or pavilions can be reserved for $26.75. Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is also interested in making copies of any old photos or memorabilia from the past that might have some attachment to the park. Please mail photos to 2850 Ponce de Leon Springs Road, Ponce de Leon, FL 32455, call 836-4281 or email Miller at Aaron. D.Miller@DEP.State. FL.us.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 www.boatangel.com 800 1 CAR L ANGE Special to Extra BONIFAY Bonifay Middle Schools Home Economics Enrichment Class has been working on quilts that will be given to kids in the hospital. Sixty quilts were made for donation this semester. These quilts were made by sixth-, seventhand eighthgrade students that are en rolled in Home Economics for their enrichment class the second semester of the year. The quilts will soon be donated to a Childrens Miracle Networks Hospital. This project gives students an opportunity to learn and use their talents and abili ties in a rewarding way. The hospital that these quilts are going to be do nated to allows direct de livery. This means that Mrs. Rhodes is allowed to take the quilts and put them directly in the hands of the children. When speaking with Donna Rhodes, BMS Home Economics teacher, she expressed, It is very rewarding to see the smiles on their faces. Its hard on your heart, but you know that youre giving comfort to a child in need as well as their parents. The emotions with each delivery can be overwhelming. However, I nd good with each visit. Its a calling, once you go into a hospital and hand out this kind of love, it changes your life. Receiving a quilt makes these children very happy. The second quilt show of this school year was held on May 31, 2012. Stu dents, parents, siblings as well as grandparents were invited to our quilt show. Around 100 people attended the show. During the quilt show, Pastor, Mi chael Goodson blessed the quilts. He asked for there to be comfort and healing for the children receiving the quilts. He also blessed the children who gave of themselves while making these quilts for others. During the quilt show we honored a child in out coun ty with a quilt. Her name is Kaylee Barton, daughter of Chad and Ashley Barton. Kaylee has some mobility problems and will be hav ing surgeries in the near future to help her walk. The quilt was made by Megan Erickson, a sixth grader at BMS. We here at Bonifay Middle School will accept donations of new, brightly colored, kid friendly cotton fabrics. We will also accept polyester, low loft batting to complete the quilts. If interested in donatin g, you may bring items by Bonifay Middle School. For more in formation go to www.quilts forkids.org. Its 5:30 p.m. and you just got home from work when there is a knock at the door. It is a police ofcer explaining that you have 15 minutes to evacuate your family and pets from your home as a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed close to your property. What could you grab in your house in 15 minutes that is necessary for your family and pets livelihood? Dr. Deb Zoran, associate professor and member of the Veterinary Emergency Response Team at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), presented the previous example and asked Could you gather up your personal documents, your pets rabies documents, your pets food, enough clothing and personal belongings for yourself in 15 minutes and not forget anything? To ensure nothing is forgotten, Zoran recommends a preparedness plan for family and pets in case emergencies or natural disasters occur. She said this plan should include discussing locations for evacuation, meeting sites incase family members are separated or cell phones do not work, and who is taking care of the pets. Zoran strongly encouraged not leaving a pet in an emergency situation. Rule of thumb that pet owners should always use is that if you are evacuating, take your pet with you. Dont assume that you will be able to come home to take care of them because you probably wont, she said. Zoran suggested people prepare a go bag, a little bag that is packed with enough clothing, medicine, food, water, and other necessities. This bag should also include important documents such as IDs and cash incase power is out at ATMs and banks. The other thing that needs to be in your go bag is a little stash of cash because otherwise you may not be able to pay for gas, food, or anything if something truly monstrous occurs where the power shuts off, she said. There should also be a go bag for pets as well. Zoran said this should include their carrier, leashes, food, and water. For cats, this would also include a litter box and litter. As with people, the go bag should include the pets vaccination and medical records in addition to identication documents in case of separation. Zoran said this would include information about micro chipping or photographs of the animals. For both humans and pets, Zoran said the go bag should contain supplies for three to ve days. Remember, the emergency situation is not always a train derailment. Other disasters known to Texas are hurricanes, tornadoes, wildres, and earthquakes. A preparedness plan can help in all emergencies and natural disasters. The truth of the matter is preparing helps you think more logically and clearly because you know what to take and where things are, Zoran said. Zoran explained that all disasters are different so it is important to be able to adapt to the situation. The preparedness plan works until disaster hits and then what do you do? You adapt to the situation. If you have a plan and an idea, it is much easier to adapt, she said.

FAITH B Section www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday, June 20, 2012 But when the holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be lled with power, and you will be my witnesses... Good News Bible Acts 1:8 Place your message here for only $8.00 per week. First Baptist Church come as you are Mike Orr, Pastor 1300 South Blvd. PO Box 643 Chipley, Florida (850) 638-1830 Place your message here for only $8.00 per week. This Message Courtesy of Give Expecting Nothing in Return The saying Beware of Greeks bearing gifts is an old piece of wisdom which advises us to not trust our enemies, after the story in the Iliad of the Trojan horse, a gift that ultimately destroyed the city of Troy and its inhabitants. But there was also another reason to beware of Greeks bearing gifts, and that was that they always expected something in return, of comparable value. Gift-giving in ancient cultures was meant to be reciprocated and this carries over to modern times. But, a true gift should be something freely given without any expectation of re turn. If there is an expectation of a comparable return then we are really bartering rather than giving. So, we should give with a spirit of genuine charity, not expecting any thing in return. Test your ability to give in this spirit by giving anonymously, so that the recipient wont know who it came from. This isnt always practical, but can sometimes be done by sending someone an anonymous gift through the mail or by arranging for an intermediary to give the gift for you, perhaps even allowing the intermediary to take credit for the gift. Wanting to be thanked for a gift is all about our ego, and while it is only natural to desire thanks, it is better to give expecting nothing in return.

Matthew 6:2-4 BY RAY REYNOLDS Get yourself a glass of tea, shed say as I walked in the door, happy to be back home in Esto. Annie Laura Kidd made good sweet tea the key was Louisiane brand tea bags, shed tell you and I was happy to be back at her kitchen table, catching up on the local news. Annie kept her nger on the pulse in Esto, having settled into a new brick home only a few steps from the old unpainted wood-frame house where she was born. I didnt want to come back to Esto, shed acknowledge, but her husband Jimmy insisted, and their daughters Liz and Sara t right in, living among rst and second and third cousins. It was fun at their house. Something was always going on. Annie was ready for a hand of cards, or a word game, or a good-natured quarrel with Jimmy. Maybe a jigsaw puzzle was in the works on the dining room table. Usually there was a pound cake, or some cookies and orange nut bars at Christmas. My mother complained Id rather be at Annies than at home. It was a close second. And then, after my mother died, it was true. Annie was another mother. The years passed, and I moved farther away. But Ive always looked forward to trips home to Esto, and to a glass of Annies tea, and all the local news. A few years ago, when she turned 80, all of Esto turned out for a surprise party in the fellowship hall of the Esto Baptist Church. And it was a surprise, one of the few local stirrings to escape her attention. She said at the end of the party: I reckon Ill stick around and aggravate my younguns a while longer. She did. Her 88th birthday came and went last August 25. When I was home in the spring, it seemed clear there might not be another birthday. We had a good visit, and a few glasses of sweet tea, as she drifted in and out. As the time came to leave, I thanked her for being my other mother. She was fully present. Ive been proud to be your other mother, she said, looking into my eyes. Well, are you ready to go? I asked. Im ready, she said. When the time comes, Im ready to go. We hugged again, and as I turned to walk toward the door she said, Ill see you in Heaven. Annie Laura Kidd died on June 12 at home in Esto.

Vacation Bible SCHOOL Faith BRIEFS FOUR CALVARY IN CONCERT See you in heaven Page B4 BY REV. JAMES L. SNYDER Speaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The rst thing is to de ne what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder, and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning, and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I nish my to-do-list. Last Monday, I had just nished my morning cup of joe and nished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks, but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue rmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephonebilling mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My dif culty was simply that I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, ddlesticks does not seem to carry much signi cance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net.

But at the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners meeting on June 12, she requested that it be placed on the ballot so county residents can decide for themselves. One of the boards abilities is to place this on the ballot and allow the citizens to decide, but its completely up to the board, Holmes County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. Commissioner Kenneth Williams asked her what she would do if the vote failed. Then I would back off of the matter, Mason said. I might endorse or support someone else that may come along later, but I would back off trying to get it passed for the golf club. Goodman said that they could construct the ordinance however they wanted, with whatever restrictions they would be comfortable with and that the time limit would allow for three meetings to construct and approve of an ordinance in time to place it on the November ballot. Theres my personal opinion and theres my position to support the decision of the people, Williams said. So I say we place it on the ballot and allow the people to decide. Commissioner Jim King said that no matter what that he would be opposed to the idea. The board approved to put on the ballot to extend the hours of alcohol sales to Sunday contingent on the approval of an ordinance that the board found acceptable with a vote of 3 to 2, with Commissioner Phillip Music and King voting no. The Board approved Special to The Times-AdvertiserBONIFAY NASA astronaut Andrew Drew Feustel will meet with students in cyberspace as part of the Florida Summer Youth Program on Friday. Feustel will take part in two live streaming video appearances with students at the Holmes County Public Library at 303 N. Etheridge St., Bonifay. The rst session begins at 11:30 a.m. followed by a second session at 2:30 p.m. Speaking from NASAs Johnson Space Center in Houston, Feustel said he hopes to inspire Florida youths to reach for the stars during this years Dream Big events. The question-and-answer format will include information from his two space shuttle missions. Feustel was selected by NASA in July 2000. In 2009, he served on the crew of STS-125, the nal servicing mission for the Hubble Space Telescope. In 2011, he launched aboard space shuttle Endeavours nal mission, STS-134, to the International Space Station. The space ight veteran has logged more than 28 days in space, including 42 hours and 18 minutes during six spacewalks. The Florida Summer Youth Program is an annual collaboration between the State Library and Archives of Florida and public libraries around the state, which provide information, resources and activities for youths during their summer break. The featured space suit will also be available and free to the public for pictures on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information about Feustel and virtual appearances, visit www.nasa. gov/.

Marti Coley sum up her political career? She does in two simple words hard working. I think I am a very hard-working state representative, says Coley, (R-Marianna). In Tallahassee, people have to establish a reputation, and I think that I have established one as a very hard worker. As an example of her hard work, Coley sites the repeal of the 2010 septic tank inspection law. The law establishing that all Floridians had to have their septic tanks inspected once every ve years was very unpopular in rural areas of the state, and Coley said she worked tirelessly to get the law repealed. The repeal of the 2010 septic tank laws was also applauded by business groups, realtors and home builders, according to tampabay. com. The legislature repealed the law in March. Coley said she led to repeal the septic tank law in 2011, and she said she overheard a lobbyist talking about how she just didnt get it. He was the one who didnt get it, she said. My residents didnt care for the legislation, and they wanted their property rights protected for them it was a huge issue. Coley said once when she visited with Sen. Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) seeking support for her repeal, she told him, I dont think I will be able to go back home and live if we dont get this repeal. Truly this state cant be treated with a one-sizetsall statute. Rural Florida cant be treated the same way as densely populated southern Florida. The size and scope of rural legislators districts is a good example. Coley said in south Florida, there are representatives who have districts which only cover a few blocks of a city.

Lockouts Master Keying Safe Combinations Changed Locks Rekeyed Deadbolts Installed keeping the 911 Dispatch and 911 Dispatch Director Clint Erickson at their present location and to pay the additional $592 in materials to expand from their contingency fund. Space became an issue with the 911 Dispatch when a grant gave the department $300,000 worth of new equipment as well as additional equipment. The new equipment had to be in place and operational by June 2013, but time was of the essence as their current equipments warranty was running out and the new equipment would have to nd a new storage place till space was acquired. The options were narrowed down to two possibilities: expand their current space or move to the new EOC. The City of Bonifay currently is allowing them to use one of their buildings rent-free and agreed to allow 911 Dispatch to expand as long as dispatch assumed all of the expenses. Several issues arose from remaining in their current building, which included air conditioning as well as time, money and labor to expand. Another issue was that the rst installation 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 that the City of Bonifay had sent a letter stating that additional footage could be added to the building the 911 Dispatch was occupying to accommodate to the additional equipment and the estimated expense to the Board would be $592. Goodman said he would complete the necessary paperwork with the city to get started as soon as possible. This has been a headache since day one, Commissioner Monty Merchant said. Id like to see that all of the information be presented to the board on the rst go so that it can be voted on. County Engineer Cliff Knauer presented the board with a comprehensive list of all the bridges and roads that have been in need of repair, have applied for federal funding for repairs and those that are in the process of being federally funded to be repaired. I suggest that each district select bridges to be submitted to the Florida Department of Transportations Rural Works Program and that if theres any bridges not listed that you inquire about it, Knauer said. Like Mr. Kings bridge on Alford Road wasnt listed, so now weve got to nd out why it wasnt on the list. Williams had Knauer con rm that County Road 177 already had funds set aside and was scheduled to be repaired in the near future. Several representatives from Thompson Tractor Company, Inc., including sales representative Joel Whitehead, were present to suggest that the board consider the Caterpillar Certied Power Train Program. This means that the county graders would be rebuilt from the inside and would include painting, decals and a certi cate showing that the machine was rebuilt with the three-year, 5,000 hour warranty coverage program, if the board chooses. The board agreed to look over the material and give it some consideration. The board approved of Kings request to replace a recently resigned member of the Development Commission with Shirley Hawthorn. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on June 26 at the BOCC building behind the Holmes County Court House. EXTENSION from page A1By Perry WellsSpecial To Times-Advertiser BONIFAY Debbie Wilcox Morris, supervisor of elections for Holmes County, reports no surprise developments as the of cial qualifying time expired at noon on June 8. Morris is the only incumbent who drew no opposition. There are a variety of races to be determined, with some results being nal in August and some going on to November. There will also be some primary contests that are limited to only those registered with a particular party and some universal primary contests in which all registered voters can cast a ballot. Qualifying in the Republican primary for sheriff are incumbent Tim Brown and former sheriff Dennis Lee. The two of them will meet in the Aug. 14 primary, with the winner facing no party af liation candidate John Braxton Jr. in the Nov. 6 general election. With the upcoming retirement of Cody Taylor, a crowded eld of seven seeks to be the new clerk of the Circuit Court. Three Democrats, Zachary R. White, Lee Moss and Kyle Hudson, will be on the Aug. 14 ballot, with the top votegetter in that contest moving on the Nov. 6 general election to face Republican Don W. Hersman Jr. and NPA candidates John King Jr., Marsha Farmer Sherrouse and Timothy H. Wells. A plurality of votes could determine the outcome of that contest. The election for property appraiser has Democrat incumbent Otis Corbin Jr. being challenged by Republican Felecia Fisanick. That race will be decided in the November general election. The tax collector race has two Democrats only. Incumbent Harry Bell will face former tax collector Fran Fuller. That race will be determined by the Aug. 14 election, with all registered voters eligible to participate. In the superintendent of schools post, announced candidate Jody Long withdrew from the race prior to the dates for of cial qualifying. This leaves Democrats Buddy Lee Brown and Eddie Dixon to run in the Aug. 14 primary, with the winner facing Republican Terry Mears in November. Four candidates are vying for the Board of County Commissioners District 1 seat. Republicans Charles Chuck Aronhalt, Stephen Herrington III and Bobby Sasnett will each appear on the August primary ballot, with the winner facing Democrat incumbent Jim King in the November general election. A similar situation exists in County Commission District 3. Republicans David Whitaker and former commissioner Jerry Cooley will appear on the Aug. 14 ballot, with the winner facing Democrat incumbent Phillip Music in November. An unusual situation exists in the County Commission District 5 race. All ve candidates are Democrats, and all will be on the Aug. 14 ballot. Incumbent Ron Monk, along with Kristen Marell, J. Wayne Marsh, Bill Parrish and former commissioner Harold Smith will face each other, and all registered voters can cast a ballot in this race. There are two school board seats up for election this year. Both District 2 incumbent Gary Scott and District 4 incumbent Anthony Register have opted to not run. Vying to replace Scott are Wilburn G. Baker, Debbie Kolmetz and Andrea Schiller. In the event a candidate does not get a majority of votes in that non-partisan race, the two top vote-getters will then appear on the November ballot. Vying to replace Register are candidates Shay McCormick and Shirley Owens. The winner of that race will be determined in August. All county voters are eligible to vote in school board races. In addition, all Holmes County voters may vote in the Aug. 14 state attorney primary, where both candidates are Republicans. Incumbent Glenn Hess is challenged for the post by former state attorney Jim Appleman. Republicans only will participate in the District 5 House of Representative primary, where incumbent Marti Coley of Marianna faces a challenge from David Glidewell of DeFuniak Springs. The winner of that contest will face NPA candidate T.W. Pitts and writein candidate Eddy Holman in November.HOLMES COUNTY: End of election qualifying brings no surprises

There were 794,000 jobless Floridians out of a labor force of 9,262,000. The May 2012 rate fell 0.1 percentage point from the month-ago rate of 8.7 percent and was 2.0 percentage points lower than the year ago rate of 10.6 percent. The U.S. unemployment rate was 8.2 percent in May. Floridas seasonally adjusted total nonagricultural employment was 7,323,000 in May 2012, an increase of 5,300 jobs over the month. The number of jobs in the state was up 53,800 over the year, an increase of 0.7 percent from May 2011. May was the 22nd consecutive month with positive annual job growth after the state lost jobs for three years. The unemployment rate in the Chipola Workforce Region was 7.4 percent in May 2012. This was 0.9 percent lower than the regions year ago rate. In May 2012 the regions unemployment rate was 1.1 percentage points below the state rate of 8.5 percent.

Brad Drake (R-Eucheenana) wont be seeking re-election this year so Coley can have her final term as representative for the newly configured District 7 which will include Washington and Holmes counties. Coley, 51, is a native of Blountstown and a graduate of Chipola Junior College and longtime resident of Jackson County. She was a teacher in Thomasville, Ga., before moving to Marianna in 1985 with her husband, David. She began teaching at Malone High School and remained there until 1989, when she moved to Chipola College as an instructor. She has been teaching at the college for 20 years. She was first elected to the state House of Representatives on June 14 2005 to complete her husbands term after he died in March 2005. She has held the office since. One of the biggest challenges we face is the economy, Coley said. We need to make sure we make every effort to bring jobs to our area and our state. We also have to challenge the old notion that manufacturing jobs are lowpaying. That isnt the case with manufacturing today. More good, high-paying jobs are needed to strengthen the economy, and Coley said she wants to make the state more attractive to businesses. We dont need the government having an anti-business attitude. We dont need to be doing things to drive business away no one should have to wait two years for a permit, for example, she said. One of the biggest boons to attracting business was doing away with the states Department of Community Affairs, and turning its duties over to the Department of Economic Opportunity. Even the name is better, Coley said. The focus was changed from what can we do to stop you from opening a business to how can we help you? It was a world of difference. Coley said her focus if she is elected for another term will be to continue to focus on keeping government both limited and efficient. We dont need to be raising taxes, and we need to live within our means, she said. We as a government dont need to be looking at all the stuff we want then go out and raise taxes to get it. We need to keep to a budget. While Coley says having gambling establishments in a county should be up to the voters, she doesnt think gambling is a good bet for the economy. I just dont think we should be basing our economy on it. I sure wouldnt want to see Florida become LasVegas. She said although it could be a divisive issue, the crux of the matter is jobs. People are concerned about the economy and they want to have jobs for their children. One lesson learned from the BP crisis was that depending on one source of income for a region can be a fatal mistake, Coley said. The more diverse the economy is the more stable it will be, she said, and in the Panhandle there is tourism, agriculture, education and manufacturing. One of our strengths in the Panhandle is that we work as a region. Our communities work together to make a better county, and our counties work together to make a stronger region. We collaborate and we get the job done. COLEY from page A1

American Board of Family Medicine, State of Alabama and the State of Florida Hundreds turned out to pay tribute to James Edward McFatter, better known as Coach Mac, Thursday night and Friday at First Baptist Church in Bonifay. He passed away Wednesday after suffering a massive stroke the night before. This simple man grew up in Bonifay and lived here all his 79 years except for a four-year stint in the U.S. Navy and the four years spent in Tallahassee obtaining a degree at Florida State University. Yet he had a positive inuence on perhaps thousands of lives. He was probably best known as a basketball coach, but he coached every sport, taught driver education all over the county, and physical education at Bonifay Elementary. He organized many activities such as bike-a-thons and eld days involving youth. My earliest recollection of James Edward was in 1951 when Jack and I moved to Bonifay. We had an apartment in the home of Terrell and Stella Creel who lived just across the street from Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Swindle (Videll) and her son, James, whose father had died when he was two years old. There was no TV in those days and in the evenings wed sit on the screen porch and talk or wed sit by the re inside and talk. Many nights wed be sitting and wed here this young man walking by either whistling or singing. We knew that James Edward was returning from basketball practice, church choir practice, BYPU, or some school function. Diane Williams Smith recalled James Edward as a teen a few years older than she. Her age group admired what a good dancer he was as they would all be at The Green Lantern. She supposed that Madaline was his dance partner. When my children were elementary school age, coach Mac taught them to swim as he worked in the summer recreational program. He drove the school bus to Lake Geneva or Chuck and Eddies for that. As they reached high school age, he often drove the church bus to carry them on youth trips. I recall a trip to Ridge Crest, North Carolina, and his fearlessly driving us up those winding mountain roads. Then, on the way home he kept up our morale as we waited on the side of a mountain for help when the bus broke down. Though he was so involved in the community, his family was not neglected. Son Jedd spoke at his funeral of what a loving husband and father he was. He treated his wife Madaline as if she were royalty, while encouraging her to develop her own potential. (Madaline Steverson McFatter herself is another story worthy of many words.) As competitive as McFatter was, Jedd recalled loving to play any kind of game with his dad whether it was checkers, chess, marbles, or basketball. Though he never let the kids win, he taught them sportsmanship. Alex Vara, a young lady who spent a semester in Bonifay last fall working on a college assignment and writing her experiences in her Dad, Renns, hometown as her senior project, ew in from Massachusetts for the funeral. Coach Mac had made a lasting impression on her. He told her while giving her a tour of Bonifay and surrounding area that every child should learn to play marbles. Nothing teaches eye/hand coordination or friendly competition better. She also told of her experience of shing with him and Jackie Baggett after the coach taught her the forehand ip, the backhand lob, and the slingshot using a cane pole. After high school graduation and two years in college, McFatter joined the U.S. Navy where he excelled in volleyball. For the two years he played, 1957 and 1958, he made the All Navy team both years. At Florida State College he was a two time member of the All American Collegiate team. In 1985 he was inducted into FSU Hall of Fame for his prowess in volleyball. Brother-in-law, the Rev. Ike Steverson, drew laughter from those congregated at First Baptist Church where James Edward had attended since a child of eight. He started singing in the choir at that age and continued to do so until the Sunday before his death. He taught Sunday School, Discipleship training, and Royal Ambassadors. He was also an active deacon, a Gideon, and had served on numerous church committees. Ike told of being a student of Macs when he was courting Madaline. As a result of that romantic interest, Ike was given a ride home from football or basketball practice many days. The coach claimed to like the well water out in the country at the Steversons, but brother Ike was sure there was more than water that drew the young coach. Many things were said and could be said about this man who lived out his Christian faith before his family, his friends and his community. The number of people attending the services attested to the high regard and the love for this unassuming man. Our condolences and our prayers go out to Madaline, Jedd, Joni, Jana, Jill, and J.J. along with the 14 grandchildren and the other family members in your loss. We will all miss his smiling face and his warm greeting. Jackie Baggett has lost his shing buddy and weve all lost a friend.Hundreds Honor Coach Mac Many Happy Stories Recalled 1701 South Waukesha Street Bonifay850-547-2000 Fashion Frenzy Boutique 20%OFFO HappHAPPY cCORnNER Hazel Wells Tison

The 14-day period begins with the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More and ends on Independence Day. Locally, a Prayer Service for Religious Freedom will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. beginning Thursday at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, 2331 Highway 177-A, in Bonifay and continuing every evening Monday through Saturday until July 4. On June 14, Flag Day, the Catholic bishops of Florida urged the faithful and others of good will to stand together to protect our sacred and shared right to religious freedom. In a joint statement, the bishops of Florida call for the Fortnight for Freedom. This period of time is dedicated to prayer, study and action to defend against recent challenges to religious freedom and ensure the ongoing protection of religious liberty. Culminating on Independence Day, this special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action will emphasize both our Christian and American heritage of liberty. Dioceses and parishes around the country have scheduled special events that support a great national campaign of teaching and witness for religious liberty. Some recent threats to religious freedom include the HHS mandate to provide coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization and contraception; forcing Catholic foster care and adoption services to shut down for refusal to place children with samesex couples; state immigration laws that forbid pastoral care of undocumented immigrants; discrimination against Catholic humanitarian services for victims of human traf cking for refusal to refer for abortion services, according to the bishops. As bishops, we are called to be authentic teachers of our faith and steadfast witnesses to the love of Christ, even in the face of controversy and great debate. It is this responsibility that moves us to jointly and urgently appeal to the Catholic faithful and others of good will to stand together to preserve and protect our human and civil right to religious freedom, which is being diminished and marginalized today on many fronts, the bishops said in a news release. This 14-day period is a special time for prayer and commitment on behalf of our beloved country and in support of our God-given right, which no government has the authority to take from us. Let us pray in thanksgiving for our heritage of religious freedom, re ect on attempts to limit this most cherished liberty and have the courage to take positive action, the bishops said in their statement. Religious freedom is our rst civil freedom rst in the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution, according to the bishops statement. This sacred right belongs to us all. It is the basis of our democracy and the very reason that early settlers ed to our protecting shores. We must never take for granted this right for which so many before us fought and gave their lives. If you have any further questions, please call Mike DeRuntz at 614-1082. Everyone is welcome to join in with pray and petition for the protection of our religious liberties.By TOM McLAUGHLINFlorida Freedom Newspapers Unless something changes soon, on July 18 the Air Armament Center at Eglin Air Force Base will cease to exist. Thats the day presently designated for the stand down. And if the Air Force continues to move forward with consolidation plans announced last year, the 96th Test Wing which incorporates the 46th Test Wing and 96th Air Base Wing will be activated in its place. Brig. Gen. David A. Harris, now the vice commander of the Air Armament Center, is to head the 96th Test Wing, according to Eglin spokesman Andy Bourland. Harris will report to a two-star general headquartered at Edwards Air Force Base in California. Eglins own Maj. Gen. Kenneth Merchant will be responsible to the soon to be stood up organization, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, according to Bourland. As the bases program executive of cer for weapons, Merchant will report to the Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition in Washington, D.C., and have no in uence in decisions regarding the 96th Test Wing. Gen. Merchant told me two months ago Ill be a tenant on the base, said Rocky Tasse, who represents the American Federation of Government Employees Local 1942 at Eglin. Although the Air Forces recently announced decision to leave Merchant at Eglin was applauded, nearly every other aspect of the consolidation effort is being rigorously opposed by local of cials and Floridas state and federal lawmakers. My suspicion is that the Air Force is up to no good, said state Sen. Don Gaetz of Niceville. Like many people, Gaetz believes the Air Force brass is scheming to move Eglins valuable research, development, testing and evaluation mission to California. They think having the 96th Test Wing commander report to a two-star general at Edwards is the rst step. I believe there are forces within the Air Force who have long waited to diminish missions and drain the importance of our base, Gaetz said. I think those forces are still alive and well, and we need to sleep with one eye open. David Goetsch, the president of Okaloosa Countys Economic Development Council and head of a state task force set up to protect Floridas military installations, said its not just Air Force generals trying to wrest away Eglins missions. The RDT&E mission is an economic driver that lures welleducated workers to high paying jobs. The aerospace industry has brought billions of dollars to Northwest Florida economies. The Southern California delegation in Congress has been after our assets for their economic development for years, Goetsch said. Thats why the battle for the RDT&E component has continued despite 112 different studies that have shown Eglin to be the best suited for weapons and armament testing, Goetsch said. Even when the Air Force announced that Merchant would stay at Eglin, U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller and Okaloosa Countys own Defense Support Initiative group noted that it also was stripping him of his leadership over the Air Armament Center. It is important to note that Gen. Merchants newly announced title consists of only half of his current title, Miller said in a re-cent guest column in the Daily News. Miller has introduced language in the 2013 Defense Authorization Act which, he said in the column, will explicitly require the Air Force to keep the Air Armament Center at Eglin. The language passed the House, but the bill continues to languish in the Senate. At the time the Air Force announced Merchants change in responsibilities, Miller called for it to slow down its moves toward consolidation which have actually been pushed forward to July from the originally scheduled October. I believe it is reckless for Air Force of cials to continue dismantling the Air Armament Center while facing down the possibility that my legislative language will become law, he said in his guest column. Reversing their actions will cost far more than simply halting them in place and committing to compliance with existing law, Miller said. Okaloosas Defense Support Initiative argues with Miller that in 2005, BRAC designated Eglin as the Air Forces research, development acquisition, testing and evaluation center. The Defense Support Initiative said in a statement of its own that it maintains a strong interest in, and continues to await, a business case analysis of the ef ciencies expected by the reorganization proposals from the Air Force. Goetsch said the political push from Northwest Florida to keep the Air Armament Center has not gone unnoticed in Washington, D.C. Dates for stand downs at the Air Armament Center and other Air Force centers, originally pushed up from October to May, have been moved back to July. There are some indications the dates could be pushed back again. This delay does show working the public side of this is having an effect, Goetsch said.Church to raise awareness of religious freedoms GUEST COLUMNOf cials still leery of plans for Eglin Although the Air Forces recently announced decision to leave Maj. Gen. Kenneth Merchant at Eglin was applauded, nearly every other aspect of the consolidation effort is being rigorously opposed by local of cials and Floridas state and federal lawmakers.

There is a mystery that has crept upon us, and so slowly that few have noticed. The mystery is a sh we catch almost every time we bottom sh. Over Destin way it is called mingo. In this area it is referred to as beeliner. The ofcial name is vermillion snapper. Vermillion, by the way, means red. But these are not red snapper. When we shed the Gulf during the 1950s we caught beeliners along with everything else, but they weighed about a half-pound. They were great grouper and king mackerel bait. Sometimes when we caught a bunch some would dry up in the bottom of the boat and I would throw them overboard and they would oat away behind the boat. They wouldnt oat very far before a king mackerel would strike them. They were very good king bait dead or alive and still are good grouper or king bait. The thing that catches my eye is how big the vermillion snapper have grown during the past 10-20 years. I saw a paper the other day with a picture of all the sh that had been caught on a head boat. From bow to stern all you could see was red. The story was about the opening of snapper season, and this particular picture was intended to show how many snapper you could catch if you went along on the next trip. The only problem was that all these sh were vermillion snapper. There must have been 100 sh hanging over the rail, but only one out of the bunch was a red snapper. The question is, Where did all these big vermillion snapper come from? They certainly werent here years ago. When I worked in the oil patch running a standby boat in the 1970s and 1980s I caught vermillion snapper of this size in about 240 feet of water. I would bring some home and people would have to look twice because they thought they were red snapper. Im not complaining, but I would like to know how such a tiny sh became so large and no one noticed. The world record by the way is 7 pounds, 3 ounces, and was caught in the Gulf of Mexico. The thing that catches my eye is how big the vermillion snapper have grown during the past 10-20 years. I saw a paper the other day with a picture of all the fish that had been caught on a head boat. From bow to stern all you could see was red. Wednesday, June 20, 2012 OUTDoo OO RS Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net By VALERIE GARMAN229-7843 | @valeriegarman vgarman@starfl.com Meg Lamont describes the night shift at the Fish Inn on Cape San Blas as similar to being a new parent sleep is rare, and you never know what to expect. The Fish Inn is not a motel or bed and breakfast; its the home-base for the  Universi ty of Florida Marine Turtle Research Group, an organization dedicated to protecting the threatened and endangered sea turtle species that nest in Northwest Florida. Lamont, who oversees the program, has been tagging sea turtles on St. Joseph Penin sula since 1998, and new satellite tagging tech nology has allowed more insight into a turtles journey than ever before. With the help of University of Florida biolo gist Brail Stephens and a house full of college interns from across the country, every night from May to August is spent patrolling the beach, from the Stump Hole to the southern boundary of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, for nesting sea turtles to tag. The group at the Fish Inn is essentially nocturnal, spending their nights surveying the beach on ATVs with red headlights from sunup to sundown, their eyes peeled for movement in the sand. Its sort of like being a new parent when you work this job, Lamont said. When you do sleep its just two hours here, two hours there. Last week, the group satellite-tagged 10 sea turtles on the Cape as part of an oil spill research project in the Gulf. The high-tech sat ellite tags provide a turtles exact GPS coordi nates when the turtle comes up for air. Although nesting female turtles have been known to return to nest within ve kilometers of where they previously nested during their nest ing period, Lamont said GPS tracking the nest ing females has shown something unexpected. Its the rst time weve been able to see what the turtles are doing during their nesting periods, Lamont said. These guys are go ing 100 to 150 kilometers away. Its not whats expected. She said many of the turtles that have nested on the Cape have shown up in Alabama, where oil spill research also is being done with satel lite tracking. Although the group works mostly with log gerhead turtles, a threatened species, they also see endangered green sea turtles on Cape San Blas. We dont know very much about turtles once theyre in the water or where they go once they leave the beach, said Lamont, who noted satellite tracking has helped to show where the their habitats lie and what paths they take to get there, information that is essential for pro tecting the species. GPS trackers have provided insight into the turtles foraging grounds, typically located in Southwest Florida and off the Yucatan Penin sula in Mexico. Their foraging areas have all been shal low-water, inshore areas, Lamont said. When youre looking to protect turtles, its equally if not more important than protecting their nest ing area. The turtles have such an intimate relation ship with the inshore environment its so dynamic. Although technology and research has im proved, it is still difcult to know whether the turtle population is increasing or declining. Its difcult to tell with turtles because theyre long-lived, Lamont said. When I rst came (to this area) there were a lot of nests, and it declined, but it declined nationally. In the past few years, weve seen an increase. Lamont said they have seen more nests on the Cape this year than ever before, with 25 turtles tagged this season and the peak nesting season still approaching. Lamont started tagging turtles more than a decade ago as a dissertation project while studying at the University of Florida and esti mates more than 500 turtles have been tagged since then. She began using ipper tags, small metal tags with a serial number that clamp to a tur tles ipper, a process the group still uses in ad dition to satellite tagging. I came to do my dissertation and I just never left, she said. It started with two of us tagging in ve kilometers of Eglin it just got more and more interesting. She said every day is an adventure for the research group on the Cape. In 2010, a 9-foot alligator took up residence on their survey path and hissed and growled at the interns as they rode by. Theyve seen bears and bobcats, tons of storms, broken down vehicles and vehicles stuck in the sand. The beach is also patrolled every morning from 6:30-11 a.m. by a group of volunteers who mark nests and gather information to track the hatching success of the turtles. Sea turtles nest about every two to three years and nest several times during that nest ing year, Lamont said, so the group often sees the same tagged turtle several times a year, and sometimes years later. Lamont remembered one turtle she has seen about 13 or 14 times through the years. She even remembered the serial number on her tag. Every year you want to see what turtles will come, Lamont said. Its like youre seeing an old friend.

Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A7Wednesday, June 20, 2012 Local By CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @catspitstop clamb@chipleypaper.com This weeks race really wasnt all that exciting, unless you are a Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan then it was a great race. But as many of you know, I am not a Junior fan I am a Tony Stewart fan. But like any other sport, you win some and you lose some. We will go into that later. This was Juniors rst win in 143 races. Little Es last win came in Michigan in June 2008. Can he keep up the winning in Sonoma this weekend? We will see. There were a lot of the drivers having engine issues. Kyle Busch and Josh Wise had to leave the race because of their engines overheating. Wise wasnt out there long before his hopes of a win ended in lap 10, when his engine blew for the second caution of the day. The rst was when Kurt Busch hit the wall in lap 2. He also caused the caution on lap 121 by hitting the wall for caution six. Cautions three and four were completion cautions, so adjustments could be made on the cars. Caution ve came in lap 82 for debris on the track. Then something kind of rare happened: the NASCAR ofcials got out of their clean-up trucks and picked the debris up by hand. Caution seven came out in lap 127 when the star of the last couple of weeks, Joey Logano, hit the wall hard and had to be taken to the ineld care center as a precaution. He also took Kasey Kahne along for the ride into that wall. The eighth and nal caution of the 200-lap Quicken Loans 400 came out when Denny Hamlins engine exploded. Now, to the stuff circulating on the web about Stewart and Junior they are buddies, and I feel like they probably rigged up the whole thing before the race. And if it wasnt, then I totally agree with what Tony said: Its not a national holiday just because he won. I am sure he was upset about coming in second, but wouldnt you be? Now on to something else. Kurt Busch has harassed yet another reporter. This time it was Marty Smith from ESPN. Come on, Kurt, youre a good driver just keep your mouth shut and fulll your obligations so you can get a sponsor. James Finch has given you another chance. I would suggest you take it and be thankful for it. You have the potential to win in Sonoma. Just make it a repeat of last year. Keep your head held high, Kurt, and you can put this all behind you. Until next week, NASCAR fans.Junior ends winless streak RESULTS FrROM MMICHIGAN 1. Dale Earnhardt Jr. 2. Tony Stewart 3.

By DUSTY RICKETTS 315-4448 | @DustyRnwfdn dricketts@nwfdailynews.com NICENICE VILLE ILLE A persons rst trip to a foreign country is usually a pretty momentous occasion. For 16-year-old Bailey Reese, her trip to Europe will be a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity. Bailey is one of 21 Americans selected by Coca-Cola to carry the Olympic ame during the 2012 Olympic Torch Relay that ends July 27 in London. Im very excited and really nervous, too, Bailey said. Im looking forward to seeing everything. Its so cool to be able to go to another country and be able to actually carry a torch and see all the different historical sites and how they do things. I think this is a huge honor, she said. I never thought I would be doing something this big in my entire life. Bailey was selected as part of Coca-Colas Live Positively program, which encourages people to improve their community and live healthy. When she was 7, Bailey founded a nonprot organization called Hero Hugs after Hurricane Ivan in 2004 when she saw residents treat service members rudely as they distributed emergency supplies. The organization has since sent out 75,000 care packages to U.S. military members around the world. There will be 8,000 torch bearers who will carry the Olympic Torch through 1,019 communities over a 70-day period. Bailey will carry the torch on July 10, the 53rd day of the relay, and run about one-fth of a mile through the village of Bisham along the Thames River. To get ready for the run, the YMCA of Niceville has given Bailey a free membership and has staff working with the Florida Virtual School student to get her ready. Her mother, Diana Reese, said she still does not know who nominated Bailey to carry the torch. We didnt know anything about it until we got the phone call from them, and it was really funny because initially I thought it was a joke, Diana Reese said. Were still in awe. Its not even real yet.Niceville girl to carry Olympic ame BAILEY REESE LLEE MAKES DDEANS LLIST BES announces Tropicana speech winners BONIFAYONIFAY Bonifay Elementary School held a 4-H Tropicana speech competition on May 17.

Theyre all over my house and my white car, Phelps said. Then when he got to work, even more were waiting, covering many of the vehicles on the dealer ships used car lot. I dont know what they are, dealership manager Howell Larry said. Ive never seen anything like that: kind of a cross be tween an ant and a termite. It makes it hard to sell a car. Theyre all in the cracks in the doors. If we open the door to show a customer, theyre going to get inside the car. While the staff at the Chrysler dealership pon dered what to do, workers arriving at Williams Com munications off P.J. Adams Parkway found swarms of the critters all over their front door. Neighboring companies also found in festations had settled in overnight. Theyre a breed of ying ant, said Jason Howard, a technician with Spears Pest Control. We didnt have a winter. We didnt have any consecutive days with a freeze for anything to go into a dormant stage. Were seeing them all over. With out a winter in Florida, this is what happens. After photos and speci mens of the bugs were ex amined at Spears ofce, they were identied as male Florida carpenter ants. We typically see the fe males, but these are male swarmers, Howard said. Other area pest control services also saw a spike in calls from residents and businesses after the torren tial rains of the past week end let up. Ants will burrow dur ing a drought situation, but whenever theres a huge amount of rain, the ants come to the surface be cause theres more mois ture on the surface, said Michael Cadenhead of Ca denhead Services Pest Con trol. When they swarm, theyre trying to start a new colony. Cadenhead said the start of summer is generally also the swarming season for termites and ants. A large swarm, attracted by ood lights, recently settled on Durell Lee Parks balleld during a game, he said. For tunately, he said the ants seen around Crestview are more of a bother than a hazard. If anything theyre a nuisance, he said. Theyre attracted to lights. Typi cally, if people are trying to avoid having a bad case of them around their home, the best thing to do is to turn their lights off and pull the blinds.

Hess emphasizes link between violent crime, drugsBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY State Attorney Glenn Hess was the guest speaker for the June 13 Bonifay Kiwanis Club meeting. He spoke on the violent effects of drugs on communities, one example being the murder of local woman Mia Shay Brown by Johnny Mack Sketo Calhoun. Im going to be talking about the Johnny Mack Sketo Calhoun case, Hess said. I understand that he has a momma who loves him, he certainly has a daddy that loves him and this is a tragedy to be losing his son to the prison system. It is also a tragedy for the Brown family having lost a wonderful daughter like Mia. At the root of this crime, Hess said, were drugs. The rst drug Hess discussed was marijuana. One of those things about people who smoke marijuana, by and large we dont have violent crimes, but we dont have must productivity, Hess said. Then we talk about the other drugs, the cocaine, the crack cocaine, the methamphetamines, designer drugs, proscription drugs, now were talking about a whole new breed of cat. Its of great concern to a prosecutor, and it should be a great concern to you. Hess said drugs have a drastic effect on the users. We all understand about crack cocaine and the powered cocaine, but methamphetamines, they do a lot of things to people, Hess said. First of all, they make you ugly. Youve seen the pictures of a pretty young girl, and it shows the progression of the effect that this drug has on her body. Why anyone would want to do that to themselves is beyond me. Hess said those who use methamphetamines are also are capable of committing violent crimes, using the Calhoun murder trial as an example. You are all probably familiar with the case, said Hess. Mia worked at a convenience store in Esto. She had a friend named Brittney, and Brittney had a boyfriend by the name of Johnny Mack Sketo Calhoun. Calhoun, from all accounts, was a upstanding young person when he was in high school, but Hess said he had learned through the course of the investigation that Calhoun would go to a place in Alabama, out in the woods where he had a campsite, and cook methamphetamines. Hess said the location was safe for cooking methamphetamines because it was remote. We saw when the trailer was searched that it was obvious that he would sit in his mobile home and he would cook the methamphetamines on a spoon, and then he would inject himself with methamphetamines, Hess said. While he was doing methamphetamines, he was obviously watching pornography. When I was in Sunday school, they used to have a song called Be Careful Little Eyes What You See, because what you see corrupts your mind and once your mind is corrupted, then it will corrupt your hands, Hess said. Thats what happened to Johnny Mack. Besides taking methamphetamines, hed start watching these things, and I can imagine that things went like this: Mia and his girlfriend were friends, they knew each other. It was getting closer to Christmas, Hess said, and neither Brittney nor Calhoun had a car. Brittney had to borrow her fathers truck whenever she needed a ride. Johnny Mack was suppose to go over to Brittneys house so they could go Christmas shopping and do those Christmas things with her and her child, Hess said. Mia, being the nice person that she was, realized Johnny Mack couldnt get to his girlfriends house, and she decided that wasnt right. So she decided to volunteer to give him a ride. Meanwhile, Calhoun was sitting at his trailer doing what he was doing and looking at what he was looking, and obviously he got the idea that maybe he wanted to be with Mia Brown, Hess said. Of course well all know the rest of the story. He kept her in that trailer, bound up, her blood was found all over that trailer in little pieces and parts, and his blood was found in that trailer and on the bed. Hess explained how investigators learned Brown was kept in the trailer from 9:30 p.m. to at least 4 a.m. She was then taken to Alabama before dawn, and we know that by noon that day, she had died a horrible death, Hess said. Its one of those things that you wonder how a human being could do that to someone else; burn someone alive. The answer to that is that youre on methamphetamines. He said if someone was to go through the cases lawyers have seen in Florida, they will nd that a lot of reported violent crimes, the nonsensical crimes, the cruel crimes all have the usual factor of methamphetamines. If its not methamphetamines, then we frequently have the designer drugs, Hess said. These are the bath salts youve read about. These bath salts not only give people LSD-type hallucinations, they kind of give them a kind of superhuman strength. One particular case, Hess said, happened recently in Bay County. He said a Bay County sheriffs deputy had been called to the airport to subdue a passenger who had overdosed on bath salts, and the emergency medical technicians couldnt get him on a gurney to transport him to the hospital. So the deputy had to do everything he could just to get the passenger into the back of the patrol car. The deputy had turned his dash camera around so he could keep an eye on his aggressive passenger. There was a radar detector machine in the backseat, and the deputy said he had seen the man, still handcuffed, use his teeth to rip the radar machine off of where it was and shake it back and forth like your dog would do with a sock. This superhuman strength takes two or three deputies just to hold someone down, Hess said. These are the scary things that are happening in our community. One of the crazy things about these bath salts are that you can go to Walmart and pick up a gallon tub of bath salts for a couple bucks, and if you go to one of these head shops in Panama City Beach, theyll try to sell you bath salts in these little tiny packages for $40, and then theyll tell you they didnt know it was illegal. Hess said bath salts is just a name that was given to the fake methamphetamines so they could be sold legally. The law recently has found ways of making these new designer drugs illegal in most states, including Florida. When people start talking about the legalization of drugs and the humanization of drugs, you have to recognize that its society that pays the price for the use of drugs in our community, Hess said. If were not dealing with the violent drugs and the results of those violent drugs, then were dealing with the nonproductivity of the marijuana smokers. I cant imagine how someone whos going through either high school or college could do that when theyre doing marijuana. They say it doesnt hurt anybody, and maybe it doesnt, but then again it doesnt help them excel either. GLENN HESS

In spite of what many might think, though the state announced it might close the Ponce de Leon Springs State Park in 2010, it is still going strong, with an average of more than 1,000 visitors per week. The park is named after Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon, who led the rst Spanish expedition to Florida in 1513 searching for the Fountain of Youth. Though the crisp, clear waters of the Ponce de Leon Springs wont make you forever young, the older generation of the area say they feel like a kid again when they visit the old swimmin hole. However, the old swimmin hole has changed quite a bit over the ages. Before the Ponce de Leon Springs became a recreational area, it was a source of drinking water for the European settlers and American Indians. The land surrounding the springs was used for harvesting timber and turpentine, which was the majority of the industry for that area. The longleaf pines were a perfect source of timber for building homes, businesses and the railroad that would be crucial for developing the Florida we know today. Those pines were also a good resource for turpentining, the process of cutting deep grooves in the bark to cause it to pour resin, which was used in the making of glue, ink, paint, varnishes, sealants for wood homes and many other useful products. The earliest recorded owners were the Smithgall family, who owned the spring in the 1920s and built it to be a tourist attraction and recreational destination. The Smithgall family built a bathhouse, concession stand and skating rink, installed a large slide and created a barrier around the spring to prevent erosion. Though a lot has changed since the Florida Park Service inducted the springs as a state park on Dec. 21, 1970, many things remain the same. The springs are still a major draw, with water temperatures maintaining a constant 68 degrees with a continual feed of 14 million gallons per day by two underground water ows and caves for exploring. Visitors also are drawn by the natural features, such as nature trails with seasonal Ranger-guided tours, picnicking in the park with grills and pavilions available to the public, shing opportunities for catsh, largemouth bass, chain pickerel and pansh and even the occasional wedding. One attraction the park is striving to add because of popular demand is camping, according to Ponce de Leon Springs State Park INDEXSociety . .................................

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County NewsRanger Aaron Miller. Theres a lot to factor in when developing camping grounds, Miller said. Theres the natural balance that must be maintained, and then theres accommodating to the visitors. I know with further study well be able to nd a happy median for the two. Another signicant aspect to the state park, far from the public eye, is the natural phenomenon that sets Ponce de Leon Springs State Park from every other state park in Florida, the Sarracenia purpurea, commonly known as the pitcher plant. Miller said Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is the rst Florida state park to have these plants thrive. The pitcher plant is a carnivore, acquiring most of its nutrients from its prey, which is primarily ants, ies, spiders, moths and even mosquitoes, and is more commonly found in the northern region. Both digestive enzymes and bacteria aid the digestion of prey, and as the pitcher leaves grow older, the community of bacteria assists the plant in digestion. Miller said the red pitcher plant is especially rare in this area, especially because the normal pitcher plants known for taking up root in Florida are the purple pitcher plants. Funny thing is we have a hard time growing the red pitcher plants, but the purple pitcher plants love the marshy areas and particularly prefer the type of moss that grows there, Miller said. We have two other ones that are common here on the park, the trumpet pitcher plants and the parrot pitcher plants. The park is also home to numerous Gopherus polyphemus, commonly known as the gopher tortoise. Gopher tortoises are known for their burrows that help shelter more than 360 other species. The gopher tortoise is now under the protection of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. There are stringent laws and procedures developers must go through to build on gopher tortoise inhabited lands because of the rapid destruction of the species in careless development. Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is open 365 days out of the year from 8 a.m. until sunset. Entrance fees are $4 per vehicle with up to eight people, $2 per individual, or pavilions can be reserved for $26.75. Ponce de Leon Springs State Park is also interested in making copies of any old photos or memorabilia from the past that might have some attachment to the park. Please mail photos to 2850 Ponce de Leon Springs Road, Ponce de Leon, FL 32455, call 836-4281 or email Miller at Aaron. D.Miller@DEP.State. FL.us.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 www.boatangel.com 800 1 CAR L ANGE Special to Extra BONIFAY Bonifay Middle Schools Home Economics Enrichment Class has been working on quilts that will be given to kids in the hospital. Sixty quilts were made for donation this semester. These quilts were made by sixth-, seventhand eighthgrade students that are enrolled in Home Economics for their enrichment class the second semester of the year. The quilts will soon be donated to a Childrens Miracle Networks Hospital. This project gives students an opportunity to learn and use their talents and abilities in a rewarding way. The hospital that these quilts are going to be donated to allows direct delivery. This means that Mrs. Rhodes is allowed to take the quilts and put them directly in the hands of the children. When speaking with Donna Rhodes, BMS Home Economics teacher, she expressed, It is very rewarding to see the smiles on their faces. Its hard on your heart, but you know that youre giving comfort to a child in need as well as their parents. The emotions with each delivery can be overwhelming. However, I nd good with each visit. Its a calling, once you go into a hospital and hand out this kind of love, it changes your life. Receiving a quilt makes these children very happy. The second quilt show of this school year was held on May 31, 2012. Students, parents, siblings as well as grandparents were invited to our quilt show. Around 100 people attended the show. During the quilt show, Pastor, Michael Goodson blessed the quilts. He asked for there to be comfort and healing for the children receiving the quilts. He also blessed the children who gave of themselves while making these quilts for others. During the quilt show we honored a child in out county with a quilt. Her name is Kaylee Barton, daughter of Chad and Ashley Barton. Kaylee has some mobility problems and will be having surgeries in the near future to help her walk. The quilt was made by Megan Erickson, a sixth grader at BMS. We here at Bonifay Middle School will accept donations of new, brightly colored, kid friendly cotton fabrics. We will also accept polyester, low loft batting to complete the quilts. If interested in donatin g, you may bring items by Bonifay Middle School. For more information go to www.quilts forkids.org. Its 5:30 p.m. and you just got home from work when there is a knock at the door. It is a police ofcer explaining that you have 15 minutes to evacuate your family and pets from your home as a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed close to your property. What could you grab in your house in 15 minutes that is necessary for your family and pets livelihood? Dr. Deb Zoran, associate professor and member of the Veterinary Emergency Response Team at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), presented the previous example and asked Could you gather up your personal documents, your pets rabies documents, your pets food, enough clothing and personal belongings for yourself in 15 minutes and not forget anything? To ensure nothing is forgotten, Zoran recommends a preparedness plan for family and pets in case emergencies or natural disasters occur. She said this plan should include discussing locations for evacuation, meeting sites incase family members are separated or cell phones do not work, and who is taking care of the pets. Zoran strongly encouraged not leaving a pet in an emergency situation. Rule of thumb that pet owners should always use is that if you are evacuating, take your pet with you. Dont assume that you will be able to come home to take care of them because you probably wont, she said. Zoran suggested people prepare a go bag, a little bag that is packed with enough clothing, medicine, food, water, and other necessities. This bag should also include important documents such as IDs and cash incase power is out at ATMs and banks. The other thing that needs to be in your go bag is a little stash of cash because otherwise you may not be able to pay for gas, food, or anything if something truly monstrous occurs where the power shuts off, she said. There should also be a go bag for pets as well. Zoran said this should include their carrier, leashes, food, and water. For cats, this would also include a litter box and litter. As with people, the go bag should include the pets vaccination and medical records in addition to identication documents in case of separation. Zoran said this would include information about micro chipping or photographs of the animals. For both humans and pets, Zoran said the go bag should contain supplies for three to ve days. Remember, the emergency situation is not always a train derailment. Other disasters known to Texas are hurricanes, tornadoes, wildres, and earthquakes. A preparedness plan can help in all emergencies and natural disasters. The truth of the matter is preparing helps you think more logically and clearly because you know what to take and where things are, Zoran said. Zoran explained that all disasters are different so it is important to be able to adapt to the situation. The preparedness plan works until disaster hits and then what do you do?

But there was also another reason to beware of Greeks bearing gifts, and that was that they always expected something in return, of comparable value. Gift-giving in ancient cultures was meant to be reciprocated and this carries over to modern times. But, a true gift should be something freely given without any expectation of return. If there is an expectation of a comparable return then we are really bartering rather than giving. So, we should give with a spirit of genuine charity, not expecting anything in return. Test your ability to give in this spirit by giving anonymously, so that the recipient wont know who it came from. This isnt always practical, but can sometimes be done by sending someone an anonymous gift through the mail or by arranging for an intermediary to give the gift for you, perhaps even allowing the intermediary to take credit for the gift. Wanting to be thanked for a gift is all about our ego, and while it is only natural to desire thanks, it is better to give expecting nothing in return.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.

But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Matthew 6:2-4 BY RAY REYNOLDSGet yourself a glass of tea, shed say as I walked in the door, happy to be back home in Esto. Annie Laura Kidd made good sweet tea the key was Louisiane brand tea bags, shed tell you and I was happy to be back at her kitchen table, catching up on the local news. Annie kept her nger on the pulse in Esto, having settled into a new brick home only a few steps from the old unpainted wood-frame house where she was born. I didnt want to come back to Esto, shed acknowledge, but her husband Jimmy insisted, and their daughters Liz and Sara t right in, living among rst and second and third cousins. It was fun at their house. Something was always going on. Annie was ready for a hand of cards, or a word game, or a good-natured quarrel with Jimmy. Maybe a jigsaw puzzle was in the works on the dining room table. Usually there was a pound cake, or some cookies and orange nut bars at Christmas. My mother complained Id rather be at Annies than at home. It was a close second. And then, after my mother died, it was true. Annie was another mother. The years passed, and I moved farther away. But Ive always looked forward to trips home to Esto, and to a glass of Annies tea, and all the local news. A few years ago, when she turned 80, all of Esto turned out for a surprise party in the fellowship hall of the Esto Baptist Church. And it was a surprise, one of the few local stirrings to escape her attention. She said at the end of the party: I reckon Ill stick around and aggravate my younguns a while longer. She did. Her 88th birthday came and went last August 25. When I was home in the spring, it seemed clear there might not be another birthday. We had a good visit, and a few glasses of sweet tea, as she drifted in and out. As the time came to leave, I thanked her for being my other mother. She was fully present. Ive been proud to be your other mother, she said, looking into my eyes. Well, are you ready to go? I asked. Im ready, she said. When the time comes, Im ready to go. We hugged again, and as I turned to walk toward the door she said, Ill see you in Heaven. Annie Laura Kidd died on June 12 at home in Esto.SPECIAL TO EXTRABONIFAY Four Calvary will be in concert at 6 p.m. June 23 at Bethany Baptist Church.

Vacation Bible SCHOOL Faith BRIEFS FOUR CALVARY IN CONCERTSee you in heavenPage B4BY REV. JAMES L. SNYDERSpeaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The rst thing is to de ne what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder, and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning, and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I nish my to-do-list. Last Monday, I had just nished my morning cup of joe and nished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks, but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue rmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephonebilling mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My dif culty was simply that I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, ddlesticks does not seem to carry much signi cance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away. Rev. James L.
