By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT Cecilia.spears@halifaxmediagroup.com BONIFAY Holmes County resident Teresa Hamilton of Westville came before the Holmes County District School Board during its regularly scheduled meeting on Sept. 18 because of concerns she was having about where the bus stops to let her great-niece off and on. We have a problem, Hamilton said. The bus has been stopping at a particular spot for over 45 years without incident, and now its been changed because they are saying its dangerous. How about it being dangerous dropping off a pre-schooler off at an empty house for two weeks. Hamilton said the old bus stop was at the bottom of a hill, and the new one is at the top of a hill farther away from home. School Board Chairman Jason Motley said the reason why they changed the location is because they had a log truck come in early one morning while the bus was loading, and since it was on a hill the truck was having dif culty coming to a complete stop and there could have been an incident. Im not in favor of changing the stop because I have a daughter that sometimes rides that bus, and Im aware of how dangerous that stop can be, Motley said. The rst time the bus driver thought it was unsafe he reported it, and then the Florida Highway Patrol went out to investigate, and it was their recommendation that the location be changed.

I understand that the city has ordinances against having horses on the streets, Paterson said. This is a health hazard, and its appalling how the city deals with the manure. We have children who go out and play on the football field who get welts and have medical conditions that are aggravated by the manure. Paterson then went into photos of post-rodeo clean up. Theres grease imbedded in the sidewalks bringing ants right in front of our shops, Paterson said. Theres melted candy and cigarette butts. Ive been providing trash cans and trash bags, but thats not my job. She said the cigarette butts clog the flag holders on the sidewalk, making it difficult to keep the American flags from touching the ground or falling out during occasions they are displayed, like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. Whats the point in having these ordinances if they arent enforced, Paterson asked. Its a load of manure. After she brought out a petition of 150 signatures, the council asked Paterson what the petition was requesting that the council do.

Holmes County Health Department made a presentation, Tobacco-Free Holmes, to the board, showing the importance of student organizations such as Students Working Against Tobacco, school board and community involvement. Tobacco Prevention Coordinator Christopher Lauen asked the board to consider adopting a policy pertaining to increased anti-tobacco signage at the county schools. Thank you for your presentation, Board Member Anthony Register said. We appreciate all youre doing to keep our children safe and drug-free. Johnson also told the Bonifay Elementary School is in need of a new roof. Larry Zorn with the Facilities of Holmes County School District said they were in the process of trying to get a grant to replace the roof. No matter what happens we need to be looking into ways of raising funds for that roof, Zorn said. It is in desperate need of replacing. Johnson suggested that everyone pull together and inform the states representatives that a new roof is needed for the school. We need everyone taking to our senate representatives, Johnson said. Not just board members and staff but residents of Holmes County; people who care about our children and where they get their education. We de nitely need to do something. The board approved to adopt the millage for 20122013 at 6.191, which is a 1.94 mil decrease from last year and to adopt the budget for 2012-2013.

Mayor Lawrence Cloud told Paterson that he, as a shop owner on Main Street, sympathized with her plight and assured her the council will look into ways of possibly improving this years rodeo maintenance and clean up. A few other residents came before the council about issues with a broken window at the old Padgett Drugs store on Main Street and a store with no roof, no door and mold growing on the inside. Cloud assured them a letter will be written to the owner of the old Padgett Drugs store in regards to the safety issue and that the city may get the health department involved with the building thats growing mold. Well take care of that, Cloud said. The council agreed with member Richard Woodhams request that something needs to be done about abandoned cars throughout the city.

Last weeks prattle reported the death of Dr.Charles William (Bill) Foster of Florence, Ala., who in addition to his blue grass music, was the head of the History and English Department at the University of North Alabama. Bill Fosters death came on Sept. 7, 2012 at the age of 73, the same day that Rollin (Oscar) Sullivan of the Lonzo and Oscar fame died in Madison, Tenn., at the age of 93. Sullivans entertainment career was covered last week. The Wells family became acquainted with Bill Foster, and The Foster Family String Band, on our 1979 visit to The McClain Family Festival in Berea, Ky., We attended that annual event for ve years, knowing that we could look forward to seeing the Foster Family, who not only were talented musicians and entertainers, but were friendly and easy to socialize with. We became rst name friends, which made it easy for us to hire the group to come to Chipleys Railroad Centennial Celebration for a Sunday afternoon concert in the Centennial Opry House, the name applied to the recently vacated First Baptist Church in downtown Chipley. We had the Lonzo and Oscar Show, The McLain Family Band from Berea, Ky., The Academy Singers of Washington College Academy of Greenville, Tenn., and The Wiregrass Sacred Harp Singers, headed by 84year-old Dewey Williams of Ozark, Ala. Your writer, who along with Hester, served as chairman of the entire Centennial Celebration. Our responsibility was securing talent for the big weekend of May 22 and 23. We were successful in bringing in a ladies Sweet Adelines and a Mens Barbershop Quartet, both from Panama City. The gigantic celebration on Saturday was concluded after sundown at the football eld with free concerts by The Rader Family from Ocean Opry at Panama City Beach, Jeannie Pruitt from the Grand Ole Opry and Jerry Clower of Yazoo, Miss. We were well familiar with Bill Fosters ability to bring in his natural comedy talent as an Appalachian Region native. When introducing the band, Bill would rst present his wife, Anne, who abandoned a promising career as a classic musician to follow the traditional sounds of bluegrass. Then he would add and these are our two foster children, Melissa and Will. With that the band would jump right into a fast moving bluegrass song Cat sh John, Delta Dawn, Peach Picking Time In Georgia or Ode to the Little Brown Shack Out Back. At the Chipley Sunday afternoon concert, Bill Foster greeted the enthusiastic capacity crowd in the converted Opry House with a strum on the banjo, then explained: Well, since we are from Alabama and I have a Banjo on my knee, why not proceed with the old folk tune Oh, Susanna! The opening song brought the house down with applause and set the stage for a full hour of songs and merriment from Georgia Piney Woods to Travelin Minstrel Band. Hester prepared food in our home for the Fosters as she did for other performers. She still recalls Anne Fosters comment about the gigantic Chicken Wiggles casserole she prepared for the main dish for the dinner menu on that joyous occasion. The rst item on the recipe called for one hen or two fryers. That reveals the enormity of the nished product. After the 1982 performance in Chipley, I mainly kept in touch with Bill Foster through our mutual friend, Otis Peacock. Chipley residents will recall that Mr. Peacock, a native of Altha, Fla., began his teaching career in Cottondale. His last assignment in the educational eld was at the University of North Alabama, the same college Bill Foster taught a variety of subjects for 39 years. Peacock returned to live in Chipley and married his former teaching colleague, Elizabeth Green, in 1980. My niece, Melanie Russ Brown, knew Dr. Bill Foster as a professor at the University of North Alabama campus. She knew of Dr. Fosters laundry list of scholastic honors and achievements which reads like a Whos Who in American Education Circles. Melanie gave Uncle Perry periodic reports on the Foster Family Band, before the musical group retired. In an interview with Shernonda Allen, City Editor of the Times Daily Newspaper in Florence, Ala., after her fathers death, Melissa spoke lovingly of the experience: I have been blessed to have lived with a treasure to have sat on his knee as a child and to have just been mesmerized by his stories, Melissa said. The daughter explaining that Foster was uent in several dialects, stated: He was such a scholar, We always said Daddy was multilingual. He could speak just enough German, just enough Spanish and was fully uent in Appalachia! Melissa concluded her remarks with: He was a man of dignity and class. He would stand from his chair when a woman entered a room. Sunday, the day that he had the stroke, there was a storm and he called to see if I needed him to come over. Im four months shy of 50 years old and he still was looking out for me. Bill Fosters greatest love was family. They were with him on Friday night when he died at Vanderbilt Hospital after suffering the stroke on Sunday night. In addition to family already mentioned, he was the proud grandpa of Nicholas and Cody Foster. Bill and Anne celebrated their 50 years of marriage on March 12, 2012. Visitation was held on Thursday, Sept. 13 at Christ Chapel from 5-7 p.m. A Celebration of Life Memorial Service followed at 7 p.m. with Pastors Doc Shell and Jimmy Hayes of ciating. Elkins Funeral Home of Florence was entrusted with funeral arrangements. The prattler considers it an honor to have known Dr. Bill Foster and his family. It is also my privilege to write this short tribute to his loving memory. We would like to thank all who helped with and attended the Eddie White Our family has been humbled by the outpouring of love from family, friends, acquaintances, and even strangers during Eddies illness. While this journey has not been easy, it has been full of miracles and blessings from God and we are all better for it. We can never express in words the gratitude that we feel towards everyone that has lifted up our family in prayer during this time. We thank you again and ask that you continue to pray for Eddie, Felisha, Will, and Justin as they continue on the journey of recovery. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.

Nikki had resigned about three years ago when husband, Duane Crawson was transferred to Mayo, Fla., with the Farm Service Agency. Recently, he stepped up to the position of County Executive Director for USDA Farm Service when Gary Treadwell who had served in that capacity for many year retired. The main of ce is in Chipley, but serves Holmes County as well. Nikki, the daughter of Chuck Anderson of Bonifay and Cookie Anderson of Vernon, attended elementary school in Bonifay but is a graduate of VHS. She has a B.S. degree in Mass Communication from FSU and is working on her masters degree in Public and Corporate Administration Duane is the son of Alvin and Jean Crawson of Bonifay and a graduate of HCHS. Recently, a group of my siblings and spouses got together at the old home place, which my sister, who now owns it, calls The Country House. Brother Max was reminiscing about our days in 4-H Club. He recalled meeting in the home of Mr. And Mrs. V.J. Collins with Mrs Mary Levy Minchen as the Washington County Home Demonstration Agent/4-H Coordinator. Singing has always been a part of 4-H Club meetings and he was recalling the words to A Plowing Song which was adopted in the 1930s as the National Boys 4-H Club Song A growing day and a waking eld, And a furrow straight and long, A golden sun and a lifting breeze, And we follow with a song. Chorus: Sons of the soil are we, Lads of the eld and ock. Turning our sods, asking no odds, Where is the life so free? Sons of the soil are we, Men of the coming years. Facing the dawn, brain ruling brawn, Lords of our land well be. Four-H clubs are found in every county in every state in the nation as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Island and U.S. Army and Air Force installations world-wide. The programs are quite different today than they were for the rural youth of my and my siblings day, covering various areas of interest not necessarily relating to agriculture. Mrs. Crawson came aboard Sept. 14, and is busy getting the Re-enrollment period going. Some of the special interest clubs expected to start up include archery with bow and arrow shooting, but will include skeet shooting as soon as a local group leader can be recruited. She also hopes to continue with the sewing group which Mrs. Pilcher had established. I was impressed with the fashion show they put on at the spring Holmes County Fair. The nutrition group called Food, Fun, and Reading will be starting soon at Bonifay Elementary School. She hopes to begin a STEM (Science and technology) club where they will be building robots. A cooking club is also planned. Eight-year-olds and up are eligible for club membership. A minimum of ve participants plus a local group leader is all that is required to begin a club. There are even groups now for children under eight called Clover Buds. This of course comes from the 4-H emblem which is a green 4-leaf clover. The pledge takes in the 4 areas of development of the movement: Head, Heart, Hands and Health. I pledge my Head to clearer thinking, My Heart to greater loyalty, My Hands to larger service, and my Health to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world. My world has been added to the pledge since that long ago time when we met in homes with Mrs. Azel Pate as our local leader. One thing which hasnt changed drastically is the summer camp at Timpoochee near Freeport, Fla. There we had demonstrations on food preservation, nutrition, and crafts. I remember crocheting a beanie (hat) at 4-H camp. But I never became a crocheter. Five years ago when our granddaughter was serving as president of Florida FFA, she held a leadership conference at Timpoochee and from her description, the facility has changed little from the days when we went and when our son, Hiram went. Singing camp songs, doing folk dances, swimming in the Choctawhatchee Bay and getting to know kids from other counties and other parts of our own county are some of the fun things I remember from 4-H Club Camp. If you would like to become a local leader and/or start a club in your community, Please call Mrs. Crawson at 547-1108.

The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further re adopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Commission may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority vote of the legislators present. Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judicial nominating commis sion, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to This revision requires Senate of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take If the Senate votes not to the appointment, the judicial nominating commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to the same vacancy was not by the Senate. For the purpose of the Senate may meet at any time. If the Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed and will take The Judicial Commission is an independent commis sion created by the State Constitution to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge. Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are until formal charges are by the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal charges are the formal charges and all further proceed ings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, and the Judicial Commission must make available, all information in the commissions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives but provides that such would remain during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request of the Judicial Com mission to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the Judicial Commission, and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A9 Wednesday, September 26, 2012 Special to the News MARIANNA The Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce Mounted Posse recently participated in a four-day mounted police and posse training provided by Suncoast Equine Inc. Training started Sept. 17 and was conducted by Lt. Mark Newby (retired) and was held at the Jackson County Agricultural Center in Marianna. The training provided a wealth of general information concerning how the mounted posse can conduct searches, assist with crowd control and provided assistance in other law enforcement operations. Students in the class were put through a series of maneuvers on horseback and were judged on control of their horse under stressful conditions. The horses were also exposed to a variety of obstacles including strange sounds, unusual surfaces and objects that would challenge the condence of the animal. Sheriffs Posse members that participated were Raymond Bush, Mary Fralick, Joe Hardy, Dianne Hardy, Linda Lareau, Dennis Lareau, Glenda McGowan, Rick McGowan, Jewellyn Owens, Kevin Owens, Mary Jane Silcox, Bill Silcox, Carol Soloman and Joe Souza.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, September 26, 2012 Page 10 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section SCHOOL OF SHARKS OUTDOORS www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com By TINA HARBUCK 654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com Shark week is over, but there is still plenty of talk about catching Jaws. Red sh professional Sonny Granger and Capt. Phil Rooks of Fish Finder Charters shared the ins and outs of catching sharks in our local waters during Wednesdays Emerald Coast Saltwater Seminar at North Light Yacht Club Marina in Niceville. Theres a lot of hype about sharks that is unnecessary, Granger told the more than 50 gathered for the monthly seminar. Attacks are because we get up in their kitchen, he said. Im more afraid of getting struck by lightning than bitten by a shark. Our sharks are mostly sh eaters, Rooks said. They like anything bloody or oily. Some of the baits the two suggested using include bonito, skipjack, stingrays, blue sh, Spanish mackerel and Jack Crevalle. A live blue sh is my favorite bait, Rooks said. Sharks like live bait, Granger added. And they sense distress in a sh. Grangers said a sharks senses are like radar on steroids. But you have to get the shark to come to you. They can be selective about the bait, Granger said. But anything fresh dead works well. In addition to live blue sh, Rooks said he likes to cut a Spanish mackerel in half and use that for bait as well as cut Jack Crevalle, which are both oily. If you want to speed up the process of catching a shark, use chum. Anglers that do not want to make their own chum can buy it frozen at Half Hitch. Defrost the chum and mix with menhaden oil, Rooks said. You want that in the water for the smell, he said. Rooks suggested throwing a little out every couple of minutes. Then use good stinky fresh bait, Rooks said to hook the predator. As for the type of tackle, Rooks suggested a 7 ought hook or a 12 ought for bigger bait. He likes to use 80-pound test wire, about 2feet long with 30-pound test mono lament on the reel and a 6-foot 80-pound shock leader. I never use a lead, I just let it oat, Rooks said. He gets a little tension on the line and then sets the clicker on the reel. By using the clicker you tend to get more hook-ups because you dont jerk at the rst sign of the shark, Granger said. When he gets on a steady move, then you can reel down and hammer it, Rooks said. If youre looking to nail a big shark, use a 15-ought hook. For the really big ones? Youve got to go to deep water with big structure, Rooks said. However, 4to 6-foot sharks can be caught in Choctawhatchee Bay. Rooks likes to sh near marker 59 off of Joes Bayou on an outgoing tide for shark. He drops the baits out from the boat, then moves away and drops anchor and starts chumming. Where it drops off is where you need to be, he said. Once the shark is hooked, it can be tricky getting it in the boat. They can be aggressive, Granger said. They suggested using such things as a ying gaff, bang stick, gun or bat to subdue the shark. Gaf ng sounds good until you get it on the deck of the boat, Rooks said. Stay out of the way of the teeth. Youve got about 10 seconds before he goes ballistic. The shark can also be shot or nailed with a bang stick before bringing it on board. However, both suggested if the angler is not going to eat the shark, not to kill it. Rooks said the smaller blacktip sharks or predator sharks that go after live baits are the best for eating. The Destin Fishing Rodeo, which kicks off Oct. 1 and goes throughout the month, has a division just for sharks. Every Saturday in October will be Shark Saturday. The angler that brings in the largest shark on Saturday will be awarded a $250 cash prize. No nurse, lemon or federally protected shark will be allowed, and all state and federal rules will be adhered to. The Destin Fishing Rodeo scales will be open every day in October from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. behind AJs Seafood and Oyster Bar. Beat the heat; sh at night Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Floridas arti cial reefs are a whole new world when the lights go out. Get anchored over your favorite arti cial reef in 70-plus feet of water and turn off everything in the boat that makes noise. You will hear a deafening chorus of clicks, snaps and pops being produced by millions of organisms that inhabit the reef. Turn off all the lights, and any movement in the water will cause an explosion of tiny lights produced by billions of tiny bioluminescent organisms. Drop a oating light over the side to bring the squid so close that you can see them pulse with colors and patterns. Or just kick back and watch the curious sea turtles surface to investigate. Even if the sh dont bite, you will have an experience that you cant get sitting on the couch, and you wont be feeding the bugs or baking in the hot sun either. Fish that feed primarily at night have excellent vision, and they are much smarter than those daytime feeders, so you dont want to show them much. The key is to go stealthy, which is a phrase coined by my favorite yellowperch catcher, Brian Fishhead Bristow of Estherville, Iowa. Going stealthy means to scale back all your tackle to the minimum. I mean the rod, reel, line, lead, circle hook and bait. I like to sh 20to 30-pound tackle with a longer than normal, uorocarbon leader to keep a good separation between the lead and bait. Small live baits are excellent, but cut cigar minnows, sardines, herring or menhaden also work very well. Bristow will tell you frozen squid is all you need, but hes from Iowa, so you de nitely shouldnt listen to him. So what are you going to catch? In the Panhandle, you will catch what the locals refer to as black snapper, which is the same sh that people in central and south Florida call a mangrove snapper. The actual common name is gray snapper. These sh have a 10-inch minimum size limit, but that shouldnt be a problem if youre shing at night in depths that exceed 70 feet. Most of the snapper you catch will be signi cantly more than the minimum size limit and average between 4 and 6 pounds. Some will exceed 10 pounds, and when they get that big they begin to look like a Cubera. Gray snapper are open for harvest year round, and the daily recreational bag limit is ve sh per person in state waters. Snapper are not the only game in town when shing the reefs at night. Catch a live squid and put him out on a at line just outside the reach of your anchor lights. Big king mackerel and wahoo feed all night long. They also like to eat while traveling about 30 miles per hour, so set the drag light and keep the rod in a holder. Safety is always a consideration, especially when night shing, so make sure you pick a night with perfect weather and calm seas, especially if you sh from a small boat. Also, make sure your ares are current and your lights, electronics, marine radio and bilge pump are working properly. By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission For a hunter theres nothing that says fall has arrived like the opening of dove season. Its better when there is a cool breeze on opening day but if doves are ying, thats nirvana for a dove hunter. The rst phase of the dove season in Florida is Oct. 6-29. Shooting is legal during the rst phase from noon to sunset. There still are large-scale farming operations across the Panhandle where peanuts and corn are grown. Thousands of dove hunters hunt these recently picked or harvested elds every season. However, many hunters dont have access to the large farm elds but in their place, they are growing crops for doves and an assortment of other wildlife, albeit on a smaller scale. Fields of ve to 20 acres are typical. And, done correctly, its perfectly legal. Crops typically grown for doves include brown-top and pearl millet, dove proso, bene (sesame seed) and sun owers. Some of the do-ityourselfers divide their elds, growing two types of crops. Under the rules regulating the harvest of doves and other migratory species that are enforced by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the crops can be mowed or bush hogged, disked or knocked down and its legal to hunt on these elds. What is illegal is when someone attempts to help Mother Nature and take grain or seed to the eld that didnt grow there. That can quickly lead to a ruined hunt and legal troubles for all involved. When it comes to whats legal and what is not, FWC law enforcement of cers recommend hunters arriving at their hunting location walk out on the eld to make sure theres nothing on the eld that shouldnt be there. Examples of introduced and illegal bait are bird seed, or cracked corn scattered about on a peanut eld. The dove season second and third phases are Nov. 10-25 and Dec. 8 to Jan. 6, 2013. Shooting hours during the latter two phases is one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. The daily bag limit during all phases is 15 birds, either mourning doves or white-winged doves or in aggregate. More information about dove or other small game hunting is available at MyFWC.com/dove When it comes to dove hunting, check those elds SHARK SATURDAY IS BACK SHARK FISHING BY THE BOOKS According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website, the following species of shark (or any part of any of the following species) are prohibited from all harvest, possession, landing, purchase, sale or exchange: Atlantic angel Basking Bigeye sand tiger Bigeye sixgill Bigeye thresher Bignose Caribbean reef Dusky Galapagos Great hammerhead Lemon shark Long n mako Narrowtooth Night Sandbar Sand tiger Scalloped hammerhead Sevengill Silky Sixgill shark Smalltail Smooth hammerhead Tiger shark Whale White Anglers may catch and release prohibited shark species in state waters. Anglers also may catch and take some species of shark in federal waters and land them in Florida but boats traveling through state waters carrying shark must not stop in state waters until the sh are landed.

Rasheed Campbell Rasheed Campbell By BRAD MILNER Halifax Media BONIFAY The theme from Rocky blared through the Memorial Field speakers on Friday prior to a version of champion versus upstart. The defending District 3-1A titlist Holmes County embodied the brash Apollo Creed. Visiting Bozeman took the role of the scrappy Rocky Balboa. The ending here, a 39-20 win for the Blue Devils, mirrored that of Rocky. The champ was the victor, but not without some noticeable bruising. Bozeman held the lead after one quarter and pulled to within ve points in the third, but the veteran Blue Devils responded each time in moving to 4-0 overall and 1-0 in the district. We bounced back a lot last year and havent been in that situation yet, Holmes County coach Brad Johnson said. But we came back and did what we had to do to win. Bozeman coach Loren Tillman also noted the Bucks (3-1, 0-1) hadnt been in tight games yet this season. Holmes County provided a challenge that kept the Bucks from a statement win. The biggest thing to me is we havent been pushed up to now, Tillman said. We wondered if we could get by with some things, but Holmes County exposed them and we know what we have to do to get better. Ty Russ returned a Jacob Martinez interception 32 yards to punctuate the win. It was the second straight interception thrown by Martinez, who was 3 of 12 for 77 yards. His legs kept Bozeman in the game, however, with a 10-yard run, his third score of the game, narrowing the gap to 25-20 with 5:06 to go in the fourth quarter. Holmes County replied with a nine-play, 80-yard drive capped by Kodi Russ second score to open the fourth quarter. Bozeman turned the ball over on downs then tossed two interceptions to seal the outcome. Bozeman couldnt harness the momentum in the rst quarter to hold back Holmes County, despite leading 14-7 on a pair of Martinez scores. His 58-yarder following a penalty that erased a Javoni Bell TD run tied the game with 3:41 to play in the rst quarter. Bozeman recovered a Kodi Russ fumble on Holmes Countys next possession and Martinez, who had 134 yards rushing, scored three plays later from 16. Bozeman gave the ball back on a muffed punt return that handed the Blue Devils possession at the Bucks 35. Kodi Russ scored his second touchdown from 9 yards to give Holmes County the lead. Bozeman went three-and-out on its next possession and Ty Russ hauled in a 61-yard pass from Jacky Miles to cap the rst-half scoring. Holmes County moved to the 1 on its last drive, but two penalties kept the Blue Devils from adding to their lead. Tillman said the inability to do anything with the ball to start the second half also was disheartening. It could have been really big if we could have fed off that last stop in the rst half, Tillman said. Their experience was a bene t. Kodi Russ had 120 yards on 21 carries and Miles passed for 196 while being tended to multiple times for minor injuries. It wasnt do or die, but it was a big game, Johnson said. It wasnt for all the marbles, but we got a lot of marbles out of this one. Holmes County is at Port St. Joe next week. Bozeman hosts Baker for Homecoming. By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Chipley fans probably got tired of hearing the name Teon Long during the Tigers 42-14 loss to the Marianna Bulldogs on Friday night at Philip Rountree Stadium. Long, a sophomore, accounted for ve of the Marianna Bulldogs six touchdowns against the Chipley squad on the Tigers home turf, starting with a 49-yard dash less than ve minutes into the game to cap the Bulldogs rst drive. The two-point attempt was good and the Dogs led 8-0. With 1:57 left in the rst quarter, Long went right and danced through the Tigers defense to end a 70-yard drive that began when Marianna sophomore Roderick Copeland took the handoff from quarterback Herman Williams and raced to the Tigers 34yard line. The Dogs stalled out for three plays before Long found the endzone on a fourth and three. J.T. Meadows kick was good and the Bulldogs were up by 15. With 5:32 left in the half Long once again scored, this time from 10 yards out. Meadows added the extra point and it was 22-0. But Long wasnt nished. At the 1:43 mark he scored from 29-yards out to push the Marianna margin to 28-0 going into the half. Chipley came back and marched from mideld into the end zone to open up the third quarter and junior Kobe McCrary punched it in from the 1-yard line. Fletcher Dilmores kick was good and the Tigers were on the board. Marianna responded in the nal quarter, when Williams screen pass to Copeland from the Tigers 20 was good for a touchdown at the 9:38 mark. Meadows effort was right on and the Dogs lead grew to 35-7. McCrary responded one minute and two plays later with a 67-yard scoring run, busting through the Marianna defense from the Tigers 33. Dilmore added a eld goal and the Tigers closed the gap to 21 points. The Tigers werent to nd the end zone again, though, but Long wasnt done for the evening He broke three tackles, changed direction and ran 58-yards to score with 6:22 left to play. Meadows added a nal point for the evening to make the score 42-14. The Chipley Tigers host Cottondale on Friday.

Local A12 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, September 26, 2012 By TIM CROFT Halifax Media PORT ST. JOE The host Tiger Sharks had a handle on the game in the rst half, but Blountstown swiped it back in the second. In a physical contest in which neither team managed 150 yards of total offense, Blountstown made several huge second-half plays to secure a 14-6 win in the District 2-1A opener for both teams Friday night. I am proud of the kids, but disappointed for them because when you play that hard you would like to win, Port St. Joe coach Chuck Gannon said. They have to learn to nish. We are playing some good teams early in the season and we are just not learning how to nish. Were getting down in scoring position. We are creating chances. We are just not nishing. That is something we have to learn to do. Both defenses were outstanding, particularly the Tiger Sharks (1-2 overall) in the opening half. With two weeks to prepare, Port St. Joe tossed schemes and formations at the Tigers (3-1 overall) they had not shown before, Blountstown coach Greg Jordan said. Blountstown managed just 19 total yards in the rst half and nished with 143, less than 100 on the ground. Its a win but we sure had to earn it, Jordan said. They showed some things we had never seen on lm and we were confused early in the game. In the end, we didnt have many offensive yards but we made enough big plays to make the difference. You have to give credit to Port St. Joe. No matter how much you tell the kids how physical a Blountstown-Port St. Joe game is, they have to play it to understand. The Tiger Sharks, who actually outgained Blountstown by 5 yards, came up with the rst key play of the game on special teams. Dusty Richter barreled in from the right side on a fourth-down punt and managed, with help from the up blocker who Richter pushed through on his way to the punter, to block the punt. Ramello Zaccarro scooped up the ball at the Tiger 27 and was untouched on his way to the end zone. A pass was incomplete on the extra point try and it was 6-0. The Tigers entered Port St. Joe territory just twice in the rst half, once courtesy a roughing-the-kicker penalty, and could get no closer than the Tiger Shark 37. Port St. Joe also had two forays into enemy territory, but one ended on downs and another on a fumbled snap. The Tiger Sharks seemed to grab momentum when Jarkeice Davis Good Luck at Peanut Emery Little Miss Chipley We love you! Mama, Michael, Tayler, Reagan, Trace, Gracie, NaNa, Sierra and Luis.

In other NASCAR news NASCAR reinstated AJ Allmendinger last week after completing the Road to Recovery program. It is anybodys guess as to where his career will go from here. Penske has said that he would consider rehiring him. There as also been talk of some of the IndyCar teams having an interest in Allmendinger. Let me know what you think will happen. Will he get back on the track in NASCAR or IndyCar, or is his career in racing over? Hamlin takes win for the second race in The Chase DENNY HAMLIN Blountstown edges Port St. Joe, 14-6 (a game-high 80 rushing yards) recovered an onside kick to start the second half. But Port St. Joe turned it over on downs at the Tiger 38, one of four times the Tiger Sharks were in Blountstown territory in the second half, the deepest penetration the 28. On its second possession of the half, Blountstown struck for the biggest play of the game when quarterback Hunter Jordan found Ryan Hathcox with inside position on a 32-yard post pattern for a touchdown, the extra point kick putting the Tigers ahead to stay. They added an insurance touchdown early in the fourth quarter when on a fourth-andgoal from the 8, Hunter Jordan scrambled out trouble in the pocket and nessed his way just inside the left corner of the end zone. The extra point made it 14-6 with 6:24 to play. Blountstown is off next week while Port St. Joe hosts Holmes County.

By CATHRINE LAMB 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT clamb@chipleypaper.com On Feb. 7, 1867, a literary legend was born, seven miles north of the small Village of Pepin, Wis., to Charles Phillip and Caroline Lake (Quiner) Ingalls. Laura Elizabeth Ingalls was the name to be given to this legend a legend that lives on with the Ingalls family in Holmes County. Laura was the second of ve children born to the Ingalls. Lauras older sister Mary Amelia was born on Jan. 10, 1865, Mary went blind at an early age. Next in the family of ve siblings was Laura. There were three more children after Laura they were, Caroline (Carrie) Celestia who was born in August of 1870 and she died in June of 1946. Charles Fredrick was born on Nov. 1, 1875, and died nine month later on Aug. 26, 1876, the youngest of the Ingalls clan was Grace Pearl who was born on May 23, 1877, and died in 1941. Charles, Lauras father settled on some land that was not yet available to make homesteads upon in what is now known as Independence, Kan. When the Ingalls made there homestead there in the late 1800s the land was Indian Territory. This phase in Lauras life lead to her writing her most popular book Little House on the Prairie. Which later turned into the wellloved TV series and Movie by the same title. When the family moved from the log cabin where the Ingalls children were born, they made a move to DeSmet, S.D. The family lived at this home site for the rest of Charles, Caroline and Lauras sister Marys life. They lived on this land during one of the hardest winters in the Dakotas history, the winter of 1880 and 1881, which inspired the writing of The Long Winter. At the age of 15, Laura received her teaching certi cate on Dec. 24, 1882. On Aug. 25, 1885, she married Almanzo Wilder, a bachelor homesteader. She was 18 and he was 28. Her life with Almanzo, which she lovingly called Mandy, is well preserved in her books Little Town on the Prairie and These Happy Golden Years. The Wilders had two children a daughter Rose, now known as the author Rose Wilder Lane. Rose was born on Dec. 5, 1886. The Wilders also had an unnamed son who was born in 1889 and died shortly after birth. Rose is believed to be the one that convinced her mother to write about her childhood as part of a pioneer family. The log cabin where Laura was born inspired the Little House series that is loved by so many young and old alike. The cabin inspired the rst book of the series Little House in The Big Woods. In 1891 the Wilders and their young daughter Rose moved for a short time to Westville. They were there for 22 months when in 1892 they packed up and went back to DeSmet and bought a small house. Two years later they took their savings and made a down payment on a undeveloped piece of land just outside of Mans eld, Mo. Some researchers suggest the familys stay in Westville in uenced Lauras literary career in some way. The familys adventure in North Florida was shared by Lauras cousin, Peter Ingalls. Peter stayed in Westville and married Edith McGowan, a local girl. Descendents of the two families have since inter-married and still live in and around the area. Laura wrote a column for the Missouri Ruralist that was entitled As a Farm Woman Thinks. She eventually became the editor/columnist for the paper. In 1922, Rose received the OHenry Award for her story based on the families experience in Westville, entitled Innocence. The story was published under her married name Rose Wilder Lane. Laura Ingalls Wilder stated the following about her stay in Westville: After our marriage, Almanzo and I lived in the little gray house on the tree claim. Then with our little daughter Rose, (now Rose Wilder Lane), we went to live in the piney woods of Florida, where the treed always murmur, where the butter ies are enormous, where plants that eat insects grow in moist places, where alligators inhabit the slowly moving waters of the rivers. But at the time and at that place a Yankee woman was more of a curiosity than these. The home where Laura and her husband moved to in 1894 is where they lived out the remainder of their lives. Almanzo died in 1949 at the age of 92, and Laura died in her sleep three days after her birthday in 1957 after suffering a stroke. Almanzo, Laura and Rose are all three buried in Mans eld, Mo., in the town cemetery. Their home where the family lived has been preserved and left just as Laura left it when she died. Inside the house, visitors get the feeling that the Wilders have just stepped out and will return shortly. Lauras spices, mixing bowl and our sifter are still in the kitchen where she left them in the cabinet. Visitors to the house will also notice that all the furniture was made to size, much of it hand made by Mandy. Laura only stood about 4 feet, 11 inches, Mandy also was of short stature. The white-framed house stands as a reminder of Laura and her family. The Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society Inc. was founded in Pepin Wis., in 1974. The town named a park after her in 1962. Throughout the years there have been markers placed at the home sites of the Ingalls-Wilder family. The last marker was placed on the home site in Westville on Oct. 8, 2006. This was the nal home site to be marked. The family may have moved nine times in three years, grasshoppers may have destroyed their crops and snow storms may have nearly starved the family, but the family stuck together and survived. Lauras rst book was published when she was 65 years old in 1932. That book was Little House in the Big Woods. She went on to publish 13 other books, including Farmer Boy in 1933; Little House on The Prairie in 1935; On the Banks of Plum Creek in 1937; By the Shores of Silver Lake in 1939; The Long Winter in 1940; Little Town on The Prairie in 1941; and These Happy Golden Years. Five of the 13 books were not published until after Lauras death. Those books were On The Way Home written with Rose was published in 1962; West From Home in 1974; The Days of Laura Ingalls Wilder in 1992; Old Town in The Green Groves in 2002 and A Little House Traveler in 2006. A manuscript that was entitled The First Four Years, was published in 1971. The manuscript was found in Roses belongings when she died in 1968. The universal theme of the books of all families face similar situations in life has allowed the books to remain popular. Remember, it is not the things you have that make you happy. It is love and kindness and helping each other and just plain being good. Laura Ingalls Wilder Washington, Holmes at a glance INDEX Society .................................

Over 200 In Stock carpettilemarianna.com and World Rabies Day is Sept. 28. It is a day to raise awareness about the impact of human and animal rabies. More than 55,000 people worldwide die from rabies every year, a rate of one person every 10 minutes. This is an astonishing number, especially because rabies in humans in 100 percent preventable. Most of these cases are transmitted to humans by dogs. World Rabies Day events have been held in 150 countries and have vaccinated 7.7 million dogs to date. World Rabies Day was created in 2006 by the Global Alliance for Rabies Control. The Alliance consisted of researchers and professionals involved with human and animal healthcare, including Dr. Leon Russell, professor in the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Russell explained that the goal of World Rabies Day is to reduce the amount of rabies cases throughout the world by ensuring adequate animal vaccination and control, educating people who may be at risk and increasing access to appropriate medical care for those bitten by rabies infected animals. For more information about getting animals vaccinated on World Rabies Day in your area, please contact your local veterinarian. While there are various strains of rabies, dogs are the primary source for transmission to humans across the globe. However, canine rabies virus strain has been eradicated in the United States because of proper and complete vaccination procedures. Our hope is to eliminate canine rabies across the globe, Russell said. Rabies is completely preventable. We want people to understand the importance of vaccinating against the disease. But while canine rabies has been eliminated, there are still treats to humans and pets in the United States, so people, particularly pet owners, need to take precautions. Dogs and cats contract rabies primarily from skunks, raccoons and bats in the United States. These canine and feline pets serve as bridge animals or carriers of rabies between wildlife hosts and people. Russell explained that if you suspect your dog or cat has been exposed to a rabid animal, you should take your pet to a veterinarian immediately. While Russell says that it is good to be aware of potentially rabid bats, skunks and raccoons, nothing is as effective in preventing rabies as vaccination of your canine and feline pets. There are two types of vaccines. One protects pets for one year, the other for three years, Russell said. They are both great vaccines, and sometimes local ordinances or price dictates which one pet owners choose but regardless, pets should always be routinely vaccinated against rabies. In addition to dogs and cats, Russell recommends vaccinating cattle and equines as well. While dogs and cats predominantly contract rabies from various wildlife species (skunks, raccoons, bats), horses and cattle most often contract rabies from skunks. Horses that are stalled, particularly at night, should be vaccinated, Russell said. Weve seen cases of horses that contract rabies from a skunk that gets into the stall; it isnt common, but it does happen. Its better to be safe than sorry when it comes to rabies. Vaccinating your animals is the best prevention. ABOUT PET TALK Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Learning Religion by Heart In many cultures children are taught prayers and creeds shortly after they have begun to speak. With out understanding them, young children memorize their prayers and creeds. As these children grow in understanding, their parents may explain bits and pieces of the prayers if their children are curious and bold enough to ask. But, as a general rule, most children accept whatever their parents tell them, and parents assume wrongly, that because the children have learned their prayers that they also understand them. The prayers are reinforced by regular recita tions, at church and at home, but there is often little effort to explain or interpret them. When these children are old enough to be on their own, they will remember their prayers in the same way that they remember nursery rhymes; there will be a strong resonance and perhaps even a feeling of comfort and safety associated with these prayers, but no deep understanding, and no live con nection with ones faith. Are we attempting to instill faith in a way that is more appropriate to learning poetry or multiplication tables rather than having a genuine experience of God?

The second installment will be published in the Oct. 3 edition and the entire article is available online at www.chipleypaper.com). For anyone to be wrong on the matter of the security of the believer is a serious matter. To believe or teach salvation isnt eternal (eternal de ned means never ending) is to clearly misinterpret the words of Christ (even if its unintentional). He is the One who told us that whoever comes to Him has everlasting life. To teach one can lose their salvation is not only a contradiction of the scriptures, but it also subtly undermines the gospel of grace itself, as well as confuses believers. One must have a clear understanding of key terms the Bible uses to describe salvation in order to teach its truths accurately (like ...everlasting, eternal, grace, gift, etc). How can a preacher tell you this Sunday that if you give your life to Christ, He will give you everlasting life, and then turn around next Sunday and tell you that it can cease to be eternal? Is it eternal or not? That is inconsistent and confusing. There is no possible way to rightly divide the Word if we cant properly de ne the words that are used to make up the sentences that comprise the Word. Below are some passages that will help clarify what has been said. I would encourage you to have your Bible handy. 1. In John 3:36, Jesus clearly teaches that at conversion we have eternal life (has eternal life is in the present tense). We dont gain eternal life when we die, it begins at conversion for those who truly believe and at that point it is never ending. The Bible tells us in Hebrews 6:18 that God cannot tell a lie, and by the authority of His Word we can know that our salvation is eternal. 2. In John 6:37, Jesus says by no means will I cast you out speaking of those who come to Him by faith. Why is it that so many concoct ways that one will be thrown out of the Family of God in light of this clear teaching of Christ? The entire context around this passage is clearly dealing with salvation. Many make the mistake of not seeing this obvious truth yet turn around and miss the context of Rev. 3:16. They take Jesus talking about spitting the Laodicean Church out of his mouth as meaning losing your salvation and totally ignore John 6:37. A few verses after the Rev. 3:16 passage He makes it clear He is dealing with chastening believers not taking away their salvation (3:19). The context of Rev. 3:16 has nothing to do with salvation. The idea is of God dining with us when we walk in obedience. When we are not walking in accordance with His Will it affects our fellowship with Him, not our position in Christ. God stands at the door of the heart of believers (the church) and convicts (knocks) because when the church is out of His Will He tries to get our attention so we will truly fellowship with Him as we should and live in accordance with His Will. The passage is to the church (3:22 makes this clear) and deals with chastening (Rev 3:19), not salvation. Revelation 3 is not a message to lost people to open their hearts because God is knocking on it. Yes God draws lost people, but the Revelation passage I have spoke of here does not deal with lost people. The Church of Laodicea in Rev. 3 was disappointing Christ and He was repulsed. If things didnt change He promised to chasten them. If the Rev 3:16 passage is dealing with salvation then we would have a huge contradiction issue on our hands with John 6:37 (This is important ... Remember the Apostle John wrote both books!!!! I dont think he changed his mind since he was inspired by God!). Jesus couldnt have made it any clearer than by saying by no means will I cast you out in John 6:37. Inaccurate interpretation over the years has led to poor teaching and a poor understanding of this truth. Sadly many well meaning people (some who are saved) are butchering the truth unknowingly. Hebrews 12:5-8 tells us that God only chastens Christians to correct them. As you read this passage in Hebrews notice that while God is chastening the believer He is still their Father! Remember, only Christians have God as their Father (John 8:38-59). Dont miss this. Chastening is totally different from condemning. Believers are no longer under condemnation according to Romans 8:1! Just as our earthly dads disciplined us, so does our Heavenly Father. He loves us and wants us to grow to be more like Christ, not kick us out of the Family of God. When you rebelled as a child did you cease to be a part of your family while your father chastened you? Chastening is about correction not condemnation. We see this clearly in 1 Cor. 5:5 (the man caught in adultery with his fathers wife). Yes his life is in jeopardy, but not his soul. Paul spells this out. When one is living out of the Will of God and not experiencing chastening then we can deduce that the individual isnt in Christ based on the Hebrews passage above. 3. In John 10:27-29 Jesus makes it clear again that no one can snatch us out of the Fathers hand because He has given us eternal life. Given not earned! 4. 1 Cor 6:19-20 tells us who are in Christ that we were bought and are no longer our own. If saved, you no longer have say over your soul and neither does Satan. We now belong to Christ, we are His. When His slaves fall out of line, He convicts & then chastens to bring us back in line. 5. 1 John 5:13 tells us that we can know for certain we have eternal life if we have given our life to Christ. How can we have the assurance that we have eternal life if it isnt eternal? 6. In 1 Pet 1:5 we are told that we are kept by Gods power, not our power or good works! How can one limit the power of God? Our works are a by-product of our faith (whole point of James 2). It is our faith alone in the person and work of Jesus Christ that saves us. Yes, true saving faith is always accompanied by repentance and godly works, but our works dont save us or keep us. It is the blood of Christ alone that saves! Galatians 3:3 reminds us that it is the Spirit that perfects us after our conversion, not us! Remember no one is good. Jesus makes this very clear in Mat. 19:17. If we think our good works need to be added to Christs blood to redeem us then we obviously dont believe there is enough power in the blood, or we have way too lofty a view of ourselves! The Gospel is about what Christ has done for us, not what we have done to earn our salvation. Paul tells us that it is Christs righteousness that makes us acceptable before God (Phil 3:9). The whole point of Galatians Ch. 2 & 3 & Eph 2:8-9 (not to mention every conversion story in the Gospel of John) is to clearly show that we are saved by grace through faith alone. That was the main thrust of the Protestant Reformation. See Part 2 of this article next week or view the entire article online at www. chipleypaper.com.

Eternal Life: Can you lose your salvation or not? Would someone please call timeout? Rev. James L. Snyder I just realized that summer is now over. Where in the world did it go? In fact, that is a very good question. Where does the summer go when it leaves? Is there some place that summer, winter, spring and fall go to chill out? When they get there, what in the world are they doing? Someone suggested, and I will not divulge any names only to say they live in the same residence I do, that as a person gets older time goes faster. I absolutely resemble that comment. This past week I nally adjusted myself to my summertime schedule. I do not know about anybody else, but it takes me a long time to get into a new schedule. While I am thinking about it, who in the world invented these seasons? Why didnt they let a good thing go? I would much have preferred that we simply divide our time by day or night. If it is dark, for example, it has to be night. And, if the sun is up and it is shining and bright, it must be day. I could live with something like that. At least I would know what time it really was. I was actually wallowing in a hopeless spirit of despondency. What is a person to do? Then something rather strange happened. One of my friends was playing football and his rst game was on a Saturday morning. I thought maybe the distraction might cheer me up a little bit and encourage me to keep on keeping on. I cannot remember the last time I was at a football game. Of course that does not mean too much, I cannot remember what I had for lunch yesterday. It was good to get into a different venue, and air out my soul. Then it hit me. No, not the football, although that might have helped to a certain degree. But a thought hit me, which is just about as rare as being hit by a football at a football game. I had just gotten into the spirit of watching the game when all of a sudden I heard a whistle and a coach yelled, Timeout. At that moment everything stopped. I looked at the clock on the scoreboard and it had stopped. I had forgotten about this little quirk in football. The clock did not start and the game did not commence until the coach yelled, play ball. Or something to that effect. That got me thinking. If they can do that for football, why cant we do that for life? After all, life is far more important than a football game. Who is that coach that yells, Timeout, and everybody stops? What kind of authority does he have? We need to bring this kind of thinking into life in general. It seems to me that everything in life is thought out in great detail except actually living life. Football has been well thought out and is comprised of rules and regulations. Baseball the same. Hockey... Well maybe not so much hockey. Most games are well thought out, have rules to live by, and if something isnt going the way it is supposed to go, the coach has the privilege of yelling Timeout. How many times could I have used this little rule in my life? Wouldnt it be nice to stop life when you have made an inappropriate remark, maybe you said something to your wife that came out the wrong side of your mouth. I have done See TIMEOUT B5

TIMEOUT from page B4 that many a times. I think it would be rather nice if when I realize what I have just said, to be able to yell Timeout. Then do it over again. The other day one of my checks from my checking account bounced. That would have been a perfect time to yell timeout and redo the whole thing. There are so many things in life that could bene t from this one little thing called timeout. I suggest that we began implementing this into our daily life. After all, our daily life is much more important than a football game, a hockey game, or a baseball game. I think whenever something goes awry we should have the privilege to stop it right in its tracks and do it over again. It does not matter how many times we have to do it over again, we continue doing it over until we get it right. It would make life more exciting if I knew that if I made a mistake I could call Timeout, do a do-over, and make everything right. I think we need to have a very stern conversation with good old Father Time. He is so much a stickler for time marching on. But sometimes you get tired of marching and need to sit down and take a breather. Then sometimes, you need to change the direction in which you are marching. It is not so bad the time marches on but when it needs to turn around and march the other way that is a completely different story. In thinking further along this line, I discovered God already has a Timeout plan. I found it in 1 John 1:9 (KJV), If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. With this in mind, I certainly want to take full advantage of Gods Timeout plan. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

B8| Washington County News/Holmes County Times Advertiser Wednesday, September 26, 2012 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today By PETER VOGTMonster Senior Contributing Writer Only a parent could offer the kind of advice Jessica Donnelly got when she started her first job: My old-fashioned mother warned me to have my clothes ready and bag packed the night before,Ž says Donnelly, a 2005 Marist College graduate who works for a New York City-based public relations firm. She also told me to eat a good breakfast and arrive early.Ž It turns out Moms seemingly simplistic advice was more valuable than Donnelly thought. Those little precautions helped to make a nerve-filled morning run more smoothly,Ž she says. Your first day of work will help define you in the eyes of your new co-workers. Make a good first impression, and soon you will be viewed as a capable, respected colleague. But a bad first impression could mean months or years of trying to undo the damage. Heres what you can do „ both before and during your start date „ to be remembered for all the right reasons.Before your first day Relearn how to sleep: Two weeks before your first day, start establishing the sleep habits youll follow when your new job begins. If youre usually out well past midnight on weeknights, get home earlier or, even better, stay home more often than not. And if you know your new job will require you to wake up at 6 a.m. to catch a 7 a.m. train, start going to bed at 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. Most new graduates underestimate how exhausting it is to work a full eight hours,Ž says Carol Vellucci, assistant to the president for communications at Towson University. Study the organization: The more you know about your new company and its activities before you start, the faster youll get up to speed. I read everything I could on the company to prepare myself for my first day,Ž says Mike Adorno, an Ithaca College graduate who works for Articulate Communications in New York City. That included not only Articulates website but also its clients websites.On your first day Bring a notebook „ and use it: Youll be meeting new people and trying to remember their names, learning about office procedures, becoming familiar with the work environment and discovering how your work fits in with that of your department and colleagues. All of this information can be overwhelming. No one can remember it all,Ž says Michael Smith, a professor of mass communications at Campbell University who teaches a course for his departments interns. So write it down.Ž Listen and ask questions more than you talk: When you were in job search mode, it probably took awhile to adjust to talking about yourself and your many outstanding skills and achievements. Now its time to listen and ask questions instead. No one likes a mouthy know-it-all,Ž says Patrick Gray, president of consulting firm Prevoyance Group. Keeping your ears open can turn into a competitive advantage when youre able to crack the culture of your new home more quickly and become a more productive and insightful employee.Ž Be ready for indifference or instant action: You might be welcomed to the organization with apparent indifference „ no cubicle, no security badge or even no work to do, says Gray. Keep a smile on your face, and go with the flow for the first couple of days,Ž he says. Things will usually get sorted out.Ž On the other hand, dont be surprised if youre tossed right into the proverbial fire. Thats what happened to Cara Chancellor, a 2006 Yale University graduate who works for public relations firm OConnell and Goldberg. The company immediately called upon Chancellors fluency in French to pursue a media placement. Six French phone calls and innumerable French emails later, we secured an interview with Le Monde, the largest and most popular newspaper in France,Ž she says. What a way to start the day „ and a new job.

We have a problem, Hamilton said. The bus has been stopping at a particular spot for over 45 years without incident, and now its been changed because they are saying its dangerous. How about it being dangerous dropping off a pre-schooler off at an empty house for two weeks. Hamilton said the old bus stop was at the bottom of a hill, and the new one is at the top of a hill farther away from home. School Board Chairman Jason Motley said the reason why they changed the location is because they had a log truck come in early one morning while the bus was loading, and since it was on a hill the truck was having dif culty coming to a complete stop and there could have been an incident. Im not in favor of changing the stop because I have a daughter that sometimes rides that bus, and Im aware of how dangerous that stop can be, Motley said. The rst time the bus driver thought it was unsafe he reported it, and then the Florida Highway Patrol went out to investigate, and it was their recommendation that the location be changed.Resident questions school bus stop safetySee SCHOOL A2 summer to our new parent company, Halifax Media But please dont expect a nished product when you initially visit the new learning curve has been At rst you might notice ask for your patience as we learn how to use our new website and build it source of local news and area that you have come Contestants strut stuff at Rodeo PageantVolume 122, Number 24See BRIEFS A2By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT Cecilia.spears@halifaxmediagroup.com BONIFAY Local resident and store owner Lori Paterson came before the Bonifay City Council during its regularly scheduled meeting Monday to address concerns with the previous rodeo and request that preparations be made for the upcoming rodeo, especially in regards to manure. I understand that the city has ordinances against having horses on the streets, Paterson said. This is a health hazard, and its appalling how the city deals with the manure. We have children who go out and play on the football field who get welts and have medical conditions that are aggravated by the manure. Paterson then went into photos of post-rodeo clean up. Theres grease imbedded in the sidewalks bringing ants right in front of our shops, Paterson said. Theres melted candy and cigarette butts. Ive been providing trash cans and trash bags, but thats not my job. She said the cigarette butts clog the flag holders on the sidewalk, making it difficult to keep the American flags from touching the ground or falling out during occasions they are displayed, like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. Whats the point in having these ordinances if they arent enforced, Paterson asked. Its a load of manure. After she brought out a petition of 150 signatures, the council asked Paterson what the petition was requesting that the council do.Store owner: Ordinance a load of manureSee COUNCIL A3 BONIFAY CITY COUNCILINDEXOpinion ................................A4 Outdoors ............................A10 Sports ................................A11 Extra ....................................B1 Faith ....................................B4 Obituaries ............................B5 Classi eds ............................B6 Laura Ingalls Wilder and family leave impression throughout the country B1

Holmes County Health Department made a presentation, Tobacco-Free Holmes, to the board, showing the importance of student organizations such as Students Working Against Tobacco, school board and community involvement. Tobacco Prevention Coordinator Christopher Lauen asked the board to consider adopting a policy pertaining to increased anti-tobacco signage at the county schools. Thank you for your presentation, Board Member Anthony Register said. We appreciate all youre doing to keep our children safe and drug-free. Johnson also told the Bonifay Elementary School is in need of a new roof. Larry Zorn with the Facilities of Holmes County School District said they were in the process of trying to get a grant to replace the roof. No matter what happens we need to be looking into ways of raising funds for that roof, Zorn said. It is in desperate need of replacing. Johnson suggested that everyone pull together and inform the states representatives that a new roof is needed for the school. We need everyone taking to our senate representatives, Johnson said. Not just board members and staff but residents of Holmes County; people who care about our children and where they get their education. We de nitely need to do something. The board approved to adopt the millage for 20122013 at 6.191, which is a 1.94 mil decrease from last year and to adopt the budget for 2012-2013.

Last weeks prattle reported the death of Dr.Charles William (Bill) Foster of Florence, Ala., who in addition to his blue grass music, was the head of the History and English Department at the University of North Alabama. Bill Fosters death came on Sept. 7, 2012 at the age of 73, the same day that Rollin (Oscar) Sullivan of the Lonzo and Oscar fame died in Madison, Tenn., at the age of 93. Sullivans entertainment career was covered last week. The Wells family became acquainted with Bill Foster, and The Foster Family String Band, on our 1979 visit to The McClain Family Festival in Berea, Ky., We attended that annual event for ve years, knowing that we could look forward to seeing the Foster Family, who not only were talented musicians and entertainers, but were friendly and easy to socialize with. We became rst name friends, which made it easy for us to hire the group to come to Chipleys Railroad Centennial Celebration for a Sunday afternoon concert in the Centennial Opry House, the name applied to the recently vacated First Baptist Church in downtown Chipley. We had the Lonzo and Oscar Show, The McLain Family Band from Berea, Ky., The Academy Singers of Washington College Academy of Greenville, Tenn., and The Wiregrass Sacred Harp Singers, headed by 84year-old Dewey Williams of Ozark, Ala. Your writer, who along with Hester, served as chairman of the entire Centennial Celebration. Our responsibility was securing talent for the big weekend of May 22 and 23. We were successful in bringing in a ladies Sweet Adelines and a Mens Barbershop Quartet, both from Panama City. The gigantic celebration on Saturday was concluded after sundown at the football eld with free concerts by The Rader Family from Ocean Opry at Panama City Beach, Jeannie Pruitt from the Grand Ole Opry and Jerry Clower of Yazoo, Miss. We were well familiar with Bill Fosters ability to bring in his natural comedy talent as an Appalachian Region native. When introducing the band, Bill would rst present his wife, Anne, who abandoned a promising career as a classic musician to follow the traditional sounds of bluegrass. Then he would add and these are our two foster children, Melissa and Will. With that the band would jump right into a fast moving bluegrass song Cat sh John, Delta Dawn, Peach Picking Time In Georgia or Ode to the Little Brown Shack Out Back. At the Chipley Sunday afternoon concert, Bill Foster greeted the enthusiastic capacity crowd in the converted Opry House with a strum on the banjo, then explained: Well, since we are from Alabama and I have a Banjo on my knee, why not proceed with the old folk tune Oh, Susanna! The opening song brought the house down with applause and set the stage for a full hour of songs and merriment from Georgia Piney Woods to Travelin Minstrel Band. Hester prepared food in our home for the Fosters as she did for other performers. She still recalls Anne Fosters comment about the gigantic Chicken Wiggles casserole she prepared for the main dish for the dinner menu on that joyous occasion. The rst item on the recipe called for one hen or two fryers. That reveals the enormity of the nished product. After the 1982 performance in Chipley, I mainly kept in touch with Bill Foster through our mutual friend, Otis Peacock. Chipley residents will recall that Mr. Peacock, a native of Altha, Fla., began his teaching career in Cottondale. His last assignment in the educational eld was at the University of North Alabama, the same college Bill Foster taught a variety of subjects for 39 years. Peacock returned to live in Chipley and married his former teaching colleague, Elizabeth Green, in 1980. My niece, Melanie Russ Brown, knew Dr. Bill Foster as a professor at the University of North Alabama campus. She knew of Dr. Fosters laundry list of scholastic honors and achievements which reads like a Whos Who in American Education Circles. Melanie gave Uncle Perry periodic reports on the Foster Family Band, before the musical group retired. In an interview with Shernonda Allen, City Editor of the Times Daily Newspaper in Florence, Ala., after her fathers death, Melissa spoke lovingly of the experience: I have been blessed to have lived with a treasure to have sat on his knee as a child and to have just been mesmerized by his stories, Melissa said. The daughter explaining that Foster was uent in several dialects, stated: He was such a scholar, We always said Daddy was multilingual. He could speak just enough German, just enough Spanish and was fully uent in Appalachia! Melissa concluded her remarks with: He was a man of dignity and class. He would stand from his chair when a woman entered a room. Sunday, the day that he had the stroke, there was a storm and he called to see if I needed him to come over. Im four months shy of 50 years old and he still was looking out for me. Bill Fosters greatest love was family. They were with him on Friday night when he died at Vanderbilt Hospital after suffering the stroke on Sunday night. In addition to family already mentioned, he was the proud grandpa of Nicholas and Cody Foster. Bill and Anne celebrated their 50 years of marriage on March 12, 2012. Visitation was held on Thursday, Sept. 13 at Christ Chapel from 5-7 p.m. A Celebration of Life Memorial Service followed at 7 p.m. with Pastors Doc Shell and Jimmy Hayes of ciating. Elkins Funeral Home of Florence was entrusted with funeral arrangements. The prattler considers it an honor to have known Dr. Bill Foster and his family. It is also my privilege to write this short tribute to his loving memory. We would like to thank all who helped with and attended the Eddie White Our family has been humbled by the outpouring of love from family, friends, acquaintances, and even strangers during Eddies illness. While this journey has not been easy, it has been full of miracles and blessings from God and we are all better for it. We can never express in words the gratitude that we feel towards everyone that has lifted up our family in prayer during this time. We thank you again and ask that you continue to pray for Eddie, Felisha, Will, and Justin as they continue on the journey of recovery. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.

Nikki had resigned about three years ago when husband, Duane Crawson was transferred to Mayo, Fla., with the Farm Service Agency. Recently, he stepped up to the position of County Executive Director for USDA Farm Service when Gary Treadwell who had served in that capacity for many year retired. The main of ce is in Chipley, but serves Holmes County as well. Nikki, the daughter of Chuck Anderson of Bonifay and Cookie Anderson of Vernon, attended elementary school in Bonifay but is a graduate of VHS. She has a B.S. degree in Mass Communication from FSU and is working on her masters degree in Public and Corporate Administration Duane is the son of Alvin and Jean Crawson of Bonifay and a graduate of HCHS. Recently, a group of my siblings and spouses got together at the old home place, which my sister, who now owns it, calls The Country House. Brother Max was reminiscing about our days in 4-H Club. He recalled meeting in the home of Mr. And Mrs. V.J. Collins with Mrs Mary Levy Minchen as the Washington County Home Demonstration Agent/4-H Coordinator. Singing has always been a part of 4-H Club meetings and he was recalling the words to A Plowing Song which was adopted in the 1930s as the National Boys 4-H Club Song A growing day and a waking eld, And a furrow straight and long, A golden sun and a lifting breeze, And we follow with a song. Chorus: Sons of the soil are we, Lads of the eld and ock. Turning our sods, asking no odds, Where is the life so free? Sons of the soil are we, Men of the coming years. Facing the dawn, brain ruling brawn, Lords of our land well be. Four-H clubs are found in every county in every state in the nation as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Island and U.S. Army and Air Force installations world-wide. The programs are quite different today than they were for the rural youth of my and my siblings day, covering various areas of interest not necessarily relating to agriculture. Mrs. Crawson came aboard Sept. 14, and is busy getting the Re-enrollment period going. Some of the special interest clubs expected to start up include archery with bow and arrow shooting, but will include skeet shooting as soon as a local group leader can be recruited. She also hopes to continue with the sewing group which Mrs. Pilcher had established. I was impressed with the fashion show they put on at the spring Holmes County Fair. The nutrition group called Food, Fun, and Reading will be starting soon at Bonifay Elementary School. She hopes to begin a STEM (Science and technology) club where they will be building robots. A cooking club is also planned. Eight-year-olds and up are eligible for club membership. A minimum of ve participants plus a local group leader is all that is required to begin a club. There are even groups now for children under eight called Clover Buds. This of course comes from the 4-H emblem which is a green 4-leaf clover. The pledge takes in the 4 areas of development of the movement: Head, Heart, Hands and Health. I pledge my Head to clearer thinking, My Heart to greater loyalty, My Hands to larger service, and my Health to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world. My world has been added to the pledge since that long ago time when we met in homes with Mrs. Azel Pate as our local leader. One thing which hasnt changed drastically is the summer camp at Timpoochee near Freeport, Fla. There we had demonstrations on food preservation, nutrition, and crafts. I remember crocheting a beanie (hat) at 4-H camp. But I never became a crocheter. Five years ago when our granddaughter was serving as president of Florida FFA, she held a leadership conference at Timpoochee and from her description, the facility has changed little from the days when we went and when our son, Hiram went. Singing camp songs, doing folk dances, swimming in the Choctawhatchee Bay and getting to know kids from other counties and other parts of our own county are some of the fun things I remember from 4-H Club Camp. If you would like to become a local leader and/or start a club in your community, Please call Mrs. Crawson at 547-1108.Holmes County has a new 4-H Club CoordinatorHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?Letters to the editor and comments on Web versions of news stories are welcomed.

NO. 5 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2, 11, AND 12 (Legislative) Ballot Title: STATE COURTS. Ballot Summary: Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Commission may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority vote of the legislators present. Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judicial nominating commission, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to This revision requires Senate of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take If the Senate votes not to the appointment, the judicial nominating commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to the same vacancy was not by the Senate. For the purpose of the Senate may meet at any time. If the Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed and will take The Judicial Commission is an independent commis sion created by the State Constitution to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge. Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are until formal charges are by the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal charges are the formal charges and all further proceed ings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, and the Judicial Commission must make available, all information in the commissions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives but provides that such would remain during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request of the Judicial Com mission to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the Judicial Commission, and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution.

Red sh professional Sonny Granger and Capt. Phil Rooks of Fish Finder Charters shared the ins and outs of catching sharks in our local waters during Wednesdays Emerald Coast Saltwater Seminar at North Light Yacht Club Marina in Niceville. Theres a lot of hype about sharks that is unnecessary, Granger told the more than 50 gathered for the monthly seminar. Attacks are because we get up in their kitchen, he said. Im more afraid of getting struck by lightning than bitten by a shark. Our sharks are mostly sh eaters, Rooks said. They like anything bloody or oily. Some of the baits the two suggested using include bonito, skipjack, stingrays, blue sh, Spanish mackerel and Jack Crevalle. A live blue sh is my favorite bait, Rooks said. Sharks like live bait, Granger added. And they sense distress in a sh. Grangers said a sharks senses are like radar on steroids. But you have to get the shark to come to you. They can be selective about the bait, Granger said. But anything fresh dead works well. In addition to live blue sh, Rooks said he likes to cut a Spanish mackerel in half and use that for bait as well as cut Jack Crevalle, which are both oily. If you want to speed up the process of catching a shark, use chum. Anglers that do not want to make their own chum can buy it frozen at Half Hitch. Defrost the chum and mix with menhaden oil, Rooks said. You want that in the water for the smell, he said. Rooks suggested throwing a little out every couple of minutes. Then use good stinky fresh bait, Rooks said to hook the predator. As for the type of tackle, Rooks suggested a 7 ought hook or a 12 ought for bigger bait. He likes to use 80-pound test wire, about 2feet long with 30-pound test mono lament on the reel and a 6-foot 80-pound shock leader. I never use a lead, I just let it oat, Rooks said. He gets a little tension on the line and then sets the clicker on the reel. By using the clicker you tend to get more hook-ups because you dont jerk at the rst sign of the shark, Granger said. When he gets on a steady move, then you can reel down and hammer it, Rooks said. If youre looking to nail a big shark, use a 15-ought hook. For the really big ones? Youve got to go to deep water with big structure, Rooks said. However, 4to 6-foot sharks can be caught in Choctawhatchee Bay. Rooks likes to sh near marker 59 off of Joes Bayou on an outgoing tide for shark. He drops the baits out from the boat, then moves away and drops anchor and starts chumming. Where it drops off is where you need to be, he said. Once the shark is hooked, it can be tricky getting it in the boat. They can be aggressive, Granger said. They suggested using such things as a ying gaff, bang stick, gun or bat to subdue the shark. Gaf ng sounds good until you get it on the deck of the boat, Rooks said. Stay out of the way of the teeth. Youve got about 10 seconds before he goes ballistic. The shark can also be shot or nailed with a bang stick before bringing it on board. However, both suggested if the angler is not going to eat the shark, not to kill it. Rooks said the smaller blacktip sharks or predator sharks that go after live baits are the best for eating. The Destin Fishing Rodeo, which kicks off Oct. 1 and goes throughout the month, has a division just for sharks. Every Saturday in October will be Shark Saturday. The angler that brings in the largest shark on Saturday will be awarded a $250 cash prize. No nurse, lemon or federally protected shark will be allowed, and all state and federal rules will be adhered to. The Destin Fishing Rodeo scales will be open every day in October from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. behind AJs Seafood and Oyster Bar. Beat the heat; sh at nightFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation CommissionFloridas arti cial reefs are a whole new world when the lights go out. Get anchored over your favorite arti cial reef in 70-plus feet of water and turn off everything in the boat that makes noise. You will hear a deafening chorus of clicks, snaps and pops being produced by millions of organisms that inhabit the reef. Turn off all the lights, and any movement in the water will cause an explosion of tiny lights produced by billions of tiny bioluminescent organisms. Drop a oating light over the side to bring the squid so close that you can see them pulse with colors and patterns. Or just kick back and watch the curious sea turtles surface to investigate. Even if the sh dont bite, you will have an experience that you cant get sitting on the couch, and you wont be feeding the bugs or baking in the hot sun either. Fish that feed primarily at night have excellent vision, and they are much smarter than those daytime feeders, so you dont want to show them much. The key is to go stealthy, which is a phrase coined by my favorite yellowperch catcher, Brian Fishhead Bristow of Estherville, Iowa. Going stealthy means to scale back all your tackle to the minimum. I mean the rod, reel, line, lead, circle hook and bait. I like to sh 20to 30-pound tackle with a longer than normal, uorocarbon leader to keep a good separation between the lead and bait. Small live baits are excellent, but cut cigar minnows, sardines, herring or menhaden also work very well. Bristow will tell you frozen squid is all you need, but hes from Iowa, so you de nitely shouldnt listen to him. So what are you going to catch? In the Panhandle, you will catch what the locals refer to as black snapper, which is the same sh that people in central and south Florida call a mangrove snapper. The actual common name is gray snapper. These sh have a 10-inch minimum size limit, but that shouldnt be a problem if youre shing at night in depths that exceed 70 feet. Most of the snapper you catch will be signi cantly more than the minimum size limit and average between 4 and 6 pounds. Some will exceed 10 pounds, and when they get that big they begin to look like a Cubera. Gray snapper are open for harvest year round, and the daily recreational bag limit is ve sh per person in state waters. Snapper are not the only game in town when shing the reefs at night. Catch a live squid and put him out on a at line just outside the reach of your anchor lights. Big king mackerel and wahoo feed all night long. They also like to eat while traveling about 30 miles per hour, so set the drag light and keep the rod in a holder. Safety is always a consideration, especially when night shing, so make sure you pick a night with perfect weather and calm seas, especially if you sh from a small boat. Also, make sure your ares are current and your lights, electronics, marine radio and bilge pump are working properly.By STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission For a hunter theres nothing that says fall has arrived like the opening of dove season. Its better when there is a cool breeze on opening day but if doves are ying, thats nirvana for a dove hunter. The rst phase of the dove season in Florida is Oct. 6-29. Shooting is legal during the rst phase from noon to sunset. There still are large-scale farming operations across the Panhandle where peanuts and corn are grown. Thousands of dove hunters hunt these recently picked or harvested elds every season. However, many hunters dont have access to the large farm elds but in their place, they are growing crops for doves and an assortment of other wildlife, albeit on a smaller scale. Fields of ve to 20 acres are typical. And, done correctly, its perfectly legal. Crops typically grown for doves include brown-top and pearl millet, dove proso, bene (sesame seed) and sun owers. Some of the do-ityourselfers divide their elds, growing two types of crops. Under the rules regulating the harvest of doves and other migratory species that are enforced by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the crops can be mowed or bush hogged, disked or knocked down and its legal to hunt on these elds. What is illegal is when someone attempts to help Mother Nature and take grain or seed to the eld that didnt grow there. That can quickly lead to a ruined hunt and legal troubles for all involved. When it comes to whats legal and what is not, FWC law enforcement of cers recommend hunters arriving at their hunting location walk out on the eld to make sure theres nothing on the eld that shouldnt be there. Examples of introduced and illegal bait are bird seed, or cracked corn scattered about on a peanut eld. The dove season second and third phases are Nov. 10-25 and Dec. 8 to Jan. 6, 2013. Shooting hours during the latter two phases is one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. The daily bag limit during all phases is 15 birds, either mourning doves or white-winged doves or in aggregate. More information about dove or other small game hunting is available at MyFWC.com/dove .When it comes to dove hunting, check those eldsSHARK SATURDAY IS BACK SHARK FISHING BY THE BOOKSAccording to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website, the following species of shark (or any part of any of the following species) are prohibited from all harvest, possession, landing, purchase, sale or exchange: Atlantic angel Basking Bigeye sand tiger Bigeye sixgill Bigeye thresher Bignose Caribbean reef Dusky Galapagos Great hammerhead Lemon shark Long n mako Narrowtooth Night Sandbar Sand tiger Scalloped hammerhead Sevengill Silky Sixgill shark Smalltail Smooth hammerhead Tiger shark Whale White Anglers may catch and release prohibited shark species in state waters. Anglers also may catch and take some species of shark in federal waters and land them in Florida but boats traveling through state waters carrying shark must not stop in state waters until the sh are landed.

Rasheed Campbell Rasheed Campbell By BRAD MILNERHalifax Media BONIFAY The theme from Rocky blared through the Memorial Field speakers on Friday prior to a version of champion versus upstart. The defending District 3-1A titlist Holmes County embodied the brash Apollo Creed. Visiting Bozeman took the role of the scrappy Rocky Balboa. The ending here, a 39-20 win for the Blue Devils, mirrored that of Rocky. The champ was the victor, but not without some noticeable bruising. Bozeman held the lead after one quarter and pulled to within ve points in the third, but the veteran Blue Devils responded each time in moving to 4-0 overall and 1-0 in the district. We bounced back a lot last year and havent been in that situation yet, Holmes County coach Brad Johnson said. But we came back and did what we had to do to win. Bozeman coach Loren Tillman also noted the Bucks (3-1, 0-1) hadnt been in tight games yet this season. Holmes County provided a challenge that kept the Bucks from a statement win. The biggest thing to me is we havent been pushed up to now, Tillman said. We wondered if we could get by with some things, but Holmes County exposed them and we know what we have to do to get better. Ty Russ returned a Jacob Martinez interception 32 yards to punctuate the win. It was the second straight interception thrown by Martinez, who was 3 of 12 for 77 yards. His legs kept Bozeman in the game, however, with a 10-yard run, his third score of the game, narrowing the gap to 25-20 with 5:06 to go in the fourth quarter. Holmes County replied with a nine-play, 80-yard drive capped by Kodi Russ second score to open the fourth quarter. Bozeman turned the ball over on downs then tossed two interceptions to seal the outcome. Bozeman couldnt harness the momentum in the rst quarter to hold back Holmes County, despite leading 14-7 on a pair of Martinez scores. His 58-yarder following a penalty that erased a Javoni Bell TD run tied the game with 3:41 to play in the rst quarter. Bozeman recovered a Kodi Russ fumble on Holmes Countys next possession and Martinez, who had 134 yards rushing, scored three plays later from 16. Bozeman gave the ball back on a muffed punt return that handed the Blue Devils possession at the Bucks 35. Kodi Russ scored his second touchdown from 9 yards to give Holmes County the lead. Bozeman went three-and-out on its next possession and Ty Russ hauled in a 61-yard pass from Jacky Miles to cap the rst-half scoring. Holmes County moved to the 1 on its last drive, but two penalties kept the Blue Devils from adding to their lead. Tillman said the inability to do anything with the ball to start the second half also was disheartening. It could have been really big if we could have fed off that last stop in the rst half, Tillman said. Their experience was a bene t. Kodi Russ had 120 yards on 21 carries and Miles passed for 196 while being tended to multiple times for minor injuries. It wasnt do or die, but it was a big game, Johnson said. It wasnt for all the marbles, but we got a lot of marbles out of this one. Holmes County is at Port St. Joe next week. Bozeman hosts Baker for Homecoming.By RANDAL SEYLER638-0212| @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Chipley fans probably got tired of hearing the name Teon Long during the Tigers 42-14 loss to the Marianna Bulldogs on Friday night at Philip Rountree Stadium. Long, a sophomore, accounted for ve of the Marianna Bulldogs six touchdowns against the Chipley squad on the Tigers home turf, starting with a 49-yard dash less than ve minutes into the game to cap the Bulldogs rst drive. The two-point attempt was good and the Dogs led 8-0. With 1:57 left in the rst quarter, Long went right and danced through the Tigers defense to end a 70-yard drive that began when Marianna sophomore Roderick Copeland took the handoff from quarterback Herman Williams and raced to the Tigers 34yard line. The Dogs stalled out for three plays before Long found the endzone on a fourth and three. J.T. Meadows kick was good and the Bulldogs were up by 15. With 5:32 left in the half Long once again scored, this time from 10 yards out. Meadows added the extra point and it was 22-0. But Long wasnt nished. At the 1:43 mark he scored from 29-yards out to push the Marianna margin to 28-0 going into the half. Chipley came back and marched from mideld into the end zone to open up the third quarter and junior Kobe McCrary punched it in from the 1-yard line. Fletcher Dilmores kick was good and the Tigers were on the board. Marianna responded in the nal quarter, when Williams screen pass to Copeland from the Tigers 20 was good for a touchdown at the 9:38 mark. Meadows effort was right on and the Dogs lead grew to 35-7. McCrary responded one minute and two plays later with a 67-yard scoring run, busting through the Marianna defense from the Tigers 33. Dilmore added a eld goal and the Tigers closed the gap to 21 points. The Tigers werent to nd the end zone again, though, but Long wasnt done for the evening He broke three tackles, changed direction and ran 58-yards to score with 6:22 left to play. Meadows added a nal point for the evening to make the score 42-14. The Chipley Tigers host Cottondale on Friday.

LocalA12 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, September 26, 2012By TIM CROFTHalifax Media PORT ST. JOE The host Tiger Sharks had a handle on the game in the rst half, but Blountstown swiped it back in the second. In a physical contest in which neither team managed 150 yards of total offense, Blountstown made several huge second-half plays to secure a 14-6 win in the District 2-1A opener for both teams Friday night. I am proud of the kids, but disappointed for them because when you play that hard you would like to win, Port St. Joe coach Chuck Gannon said. They have to learn to nish. We are playing some good teams early in the season and we are just not learning how to nish. Were getting down in scoring position. We are creating chances. We are just not nishing. That is something we have to learn to do. Both defenses were outstanding, particularly the Tiger Sharks (1-2 overall) in the opening half. With two weeks to prepare, Port St. Joe tossed schemes and formations at the Tigers (3-1 overall) they had not shown before, Blountstown coach Greg Jordan said. Blountstown managed just 19 total yards in the rst half and nished with 143, less than 100 on the ground. Its a win but we sure had to earn it, Jordan said. They showed some things we had never seen on lm and we were confused early in the game. In the end, we didnt have many offensive yards but we made enough big plays to make the difference. You have to give credit to Port St. Joe. No matter how much you tell the kids how physical a Blountstown-Port St. Joe game is, they have to play it to understand. The Tiger Sharks, who actually outgained Blountstown by 5 yards, came up with the rst key play of the game on special teams. Dusty Richter barreled in from the right side on a fourth-down punt and managed, with help from the up blocker who Richter pushed through on his way to the punter, to block the punt. Ramello Zaccarro scooped up the ball at the Tiger 27 and was untouched on his way to the end zone. A pass was incomplete on the extra point try and it was 6-0. The Tigers entered Port St. Joe territory just twice in the rst half, once courtesy a roughing-the-kicker penalty, and could get no closer than the Tiger Shark 37. Port St. Joe also had two forays into enemy territory, but one ended on downs and another on a fumbled snap. The Tiger Sharks seemed to grab momentum when Jarkeice Davis Good Luck at Peanut EmeryLittle Miss ChipleyWe love you!

On its second possession of the half, Blountstown struck for the biggest play of the game when quarterback Hunter Jordan found Ryan Hathcox with inside position on a 32-yard post pattern for a touchdown, the extra point kick putting the Tigers ahead to stay. They added an insurance touchdown early in the fourth quarter when on a fourth-andgoal from the 8, Hunter Jordan scrambled out trouble in the pocket and nessed his way just inside the left corner of the end zone. The extra point made it 14-6 with 6:24 to play. Blountstown is off next week while Port St. Joe hosts Holmes County.

By CATHRINE LAMB638-0212 | @WCN_HCT clamb@chipleypaper.com On Feb. 7, 1867, a literary legend was born, seven miles north of the small Village of Pepin, Wis., to Charles Phillip and Caroline Lake (Quiner) Ingalls. Laura Elizabeth Ingalls was the name to be given to this legend a legend that lives on with the Ingalls family in Holmes County. Laura was the second of ve children born to the Ingalls. Lauras older sister Mary Amelia was born on Jan. 10, 1865, Mary went blind at an early age. Next in the family of ve siblings was Laura. There were three more children after Laura they were, Caroline (Carrie) Celestia who was born in August of 1870 and she died in June of 1946. Charles Fredrick was born on Nov. 1, 1875, and died nine month later on Aug. 26, 1876, the youngest of the Ingalls clan was Grace Pearl who was born on May 23, 1877, and died in 1941. Charles, Lauras father settled on some land that was not yet available to make homesteads upon in what is now known as Independence, Kan. When the Ingalls made there homestead there in the late 1800s the land was Indian Territory. This phase in Lauras life lead to her writing her most popular book Little House on the Prairie. Which later turned into the wellloved TV series and Movie by the same title. When the family moved from the log cabin where the Ingalls children were born, they made a move to DeSmet, S.D. The family lived at this home site for the rest of Charles, Caroline and Lauras sister Marys life. They lived on this land during one of the hardest winters in the Dakotas history, the winter of 1880 and 1881, which inspired the writing of The Long Winter. At the age of 15, Laura received her teaching certi cate on Dec. 24, 1882. On Aug. 25, 1885, she married Almanzo Wilder, a bachelor homesteader. She was 18 and he was 28. Her life with Almanzo, which she lovingly called Mandy, is well preserved in her books Little Town on the Prairie and These Happy Golden Years. The Wilders had two children a daughter Rose, now known as the author Rose Wilder Lane. Rose was born on Dec. 5, 1886. The Wilders also had an unnamed son who was born in 1889 and died shortly after birth. Rose is believed to be the one that convinced her mother to write about her childhood as part of a pioneer family. The log cabin where Laura was born inspired the Little House series that is loved by so many young and old alike. The cabin inspired the rst book of the series Little House in The Big Woods. In 1891 the Wilders and their young daughter Rose moved for a short time to Westville. They were there for 22 months when in 1892 they packed up and went back to DeSmet and bought a small house. Two years later they took their savings and made a down payment on a undeveloped piece of land just outside of Mans eld, Mo. Some researchers suggest the familys stay in Westville in uenced Lauras literary career in some way. The familys adventure in North Florida was shared by Lauras cousin, Peter Ingalls. Peter stayed in Westville and married Edith McGowan, a local girl. Descendents of the two families have since inter-married and still live in and around the area. Laura wrote a column for the Missouri Ruralist that was entitled As a Farm Woman Thinks. She eventually became the editor/columnist for the paper. In 1922, Rose received the OHenry Award for her story based on the families experience in Westville, entitled Innocence. The story was published under her married name Rose Wilder Lane. Laura Ingalls Wilder stated the following about her stay in Westville: After our marriage, Almanzo and I lived in the little gray house on the tree claim. Then with our little daughter Rose, (now Rose Wilder Lane), we went to live in the piney woods of Florida, where the treed always murmur, where the butter ies are enormous, where plants that eat insects grow in moist places, where alligators inhabit the slowly moving waters of the rivers. But at the time and at that place a Yankee woman was more of a curiosity than these. The home where Laura and her husband moved to in 1894 is where they lived out the remainder of their lives. Almanzo died in 1949 at the age of 92, and Laura died in her sleep three days after her birthday in 1957 after suffering a stroke. Almanzo, Laura and Rose are all three buried in Mans eld, Mo., in the town cemetery. Their home where the family lived has been preserved and left just as Laura left it when she died. Inside the house, visitors get the feeling that the Wilders have just stepped out and will return shortly. Lauras spices, mixing bowl and our sifter are still in the kitchen where she left them in the cabinet. Visitors to the house will also notice that all the furniture was made to size, much of it hand made by Mandy. Laura only stood about 4 feet, 11 inches, Mandy also was of short stature. The white-framed house stands as a reminder of Laura and her family. The Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society Inc. was founded in Pepin Wis., in 1974. The town named a park after her in 1962. Throughout the years there have been markers placed at the home sites of the Ingalls-Wilder family. The last marker was placed on the home site in Westville on Oct. 8, 2006. This was the nal home site to be marked. The family may have moved nine times in three years, grasshoppers may have destroyed their crops and snow storms may have nearly starved the family, but the family stuck together and survived. Lauras rst book was published when she was 65 years old in 1932. That book was Little House in the Big Woods. She went on to publish 13 other books, including Farmer Boy in 1933; Little House on The Prairie in 1935; On the Banks of Plum Creek in 1937; By the Shores of Silver Lake in 1939; The Long Winter in 1940; Little Town on The Prairie in 1941; and These Happy Golden Years. Five of the 13 books were not published until after Lauras death. Those books were On The Way Home written with Rose was published in 1962; West From Home in 1974; The Days of Laura Ingalls Wilder in 1992; Old Town in The Green Groves in 2002 and A Little House Traveler in 2006. A manuscript that was entitled The First Four Years, was published in 1971. The manuscript was found in Roses belongings when she died in 1968. The universal theme of the books of all families face similar situations in life has allowed the books to remain popular. Remember, it is not the things you have that make you happy. It is love and kindness and helping each other and just plain being good.

It is a day to raise awareness about the impact of human and animal rabies. More than 55,000 people worldwide die from rabies every year, a rate of one person every 10 minutes. This is an astonishing number, especially because rabies in humans in 100 percent preventable. Most of these cases are transmitted to humans by dogs. World Rabies Day events have been held in 150 countries and have vaccinated 7.7 million dogs to date. World Rabies Day was created in 2006 by the Global Alliance for Rabies Control. The Alliance consisted of researchers and professionals involved with human and animal healthcare, including Dr. Leon Russell, professor in the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM). Russell explained that the goal of World Rabies Day is to reduce the amount of rabies cases throughout the world by ensuring adequate animal vaccination and control, educating people who may be at risk and increasing access to appropriate medical care for those bitten by rabies infected animals. For more information about getting animals vaccinated on World Rabies Day in your area, please contact your local veterinarian. While there are various strains of rabies, dogs are the primary source for transmission to humans across the globe. However, canine rabies virus strain has been eradicated in the United States because of proper and complete vaccination procedures. Our hope is to eliminate canine rabies across the globe, Russell said. Rabies is completely preventable. We want people to understand the importance of vaccinating against the disease. But while canine rabies has been eliminated, there are still treats to humans and pets in the United States, so people, particularly pet owners, need to take precautions. Dogs and cats contract rabies primarily from skunks, raccoons and bats in the United States. These canine and feline pets serve as bridge animals or carriers of rabies between wildlife hosts and people. Russell explained that if you suspect your dog or cat has been exposed to a rabid animal, you should take your pet to a veterinarian immediately. While Russell says that it is good to be aware of potentially rabid bats, skunks and raccoons, nothing is as effective in preventing rabies as vaccination of your canine and feline pets. There are two types of vaccines. One protects pets for one year, the other for three years, Russell said. They are both great vaccines, and sometimes local ordinances or price dictates which one pet owners choose but regardless, pets should always be routinely vaccinated against rabies. In addition to dogs and cats, Russell recommends vaccinating cattle and equines as well. While dogs and cats predominantly contract rabies from various wildlife species (skunks, raccoons, bats), horses and cattle most often contract rabies from skunks. Horses that are stalled, particularly at night, should be vaccinated, Russell said. Weve seen cases of horses that contract rabies from a skunk that gets into the stall; it isnt common, but it does happen. Its better to be safe than sorry when it comes to rabies. Vaccinating your animals is the best prevention.ABOUT PET TALKPet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Without understanding them, young children memorize their prayers and creeds. As these children grow in understanding, their parents may explain bits and pieces of the prayers if their children are curious and bold enough to ask. But, as a general rule, most children accept whatever their parents tell them, and parents assume wrongly, that because the children have learned their prayers that they also understand them. The prayers are reinforced by regular recitations, at church and at home, but there is often little effort to explain or interpret them. When these children are old enough to be on their own, they will remember their prayers in the same way that they remember nursery rhymes; there will be a strong resonance and perhaps even a feeling of comfort and safety associated with these prayers, but no deep understanding, and no live connection with ones faith.

The second installment will be published in the Oct. 3 edition and the entire article is available online at www.chipleypaper.com). For anyone to be wrong on the matter of the security of the believer is a serious matter. To believe or teach salvation isnt eternal (eternal de ned means never ending) is to clearly misinterpret the words of Christ (even if its unintentional). He is the One who told us that whoever comes to Him has everlasting life. To teach one can lose their salvation is not only a contradiction of the scriptures, but it also subtly undermines the gospel of grace itself, as well as confuses believers. One must have a clear understanding of key terms the Bible uses to describe salvation in order to teach its truths accurately (like ...everlasting, eternal, grace, gift, etc). How can a preacher tell you this Sunday that if you give your life to Christ, He will give you everlasting life, and then turn around next Sunday and tell you that it can cease to be eternal? Is it eternal or not? That is inconsistent and confusing. There is no possible way to rightly divide the Word if we cant properly de ne the words that are used to make up the sentences that comprise the Word. Below are some passages that will help clarify what has been said. I would encourage you to have your Bible handy. 1. In John 3:36, Jesus clearly teaches that at conversion we have eternal life (has eternal life is in the present tense). We dont gain eternal life when we die, it begins at conversion for those who truly believe and at that point it is never ending. The Bible tells us in Hebrews 6:18 that God cannot tell a lie, and by the authority of His Word we can know that our salvation is eternal. 2. In John 6:37, Jesus says by no means will I cast you out speaking of those who come to Him by faith. Why is it that so many concoct ways that one will be thrown out of the Family of God in light of this clear teaching of Christ? The entire context around this passage is clearly dealing with salvation. Many make the mistake of not seeing this obvious truth yet turn around and miss the context of Rev. 3:16. They take Jesus talking about spitting the Laodicean Church out of his mouth as meaning losing your salvation and totally ignore John 6:37. A few verses after the Rev. 3:16 passage He makes it clear He is dealing with chastening believers not taking away their salvation (3:19). The context of Rev. 3:16 has nothing to do with salvation. The idea is of God dining with us when we walk in obedience. When we are not walking in accordance with His Will it affects our fellowship with Him, not our position in Christ. God stands at the door of the heart of believers (the church) and convicts (knocks) because when the church is out of His Will He tries to get our attention so we will truly fellowship with Him as we should and live in accordance with His Will. The passage is to the church (3:22 makes this clear) and deals with chastening (Rev 3:19), not salvation. Revelation 3 is not a message to lost people to open their hearts because God is knocking on it. Yes God draws lost people, but the Revelation passage I have spoke of here does not deal with lost people. The Church of Laodicea in Rev. 3 was disappointing Christ and He was repulsed. If things didnt change He promised to chasten them. If the Rev 3:16 passage is dealing with salvation then we would have a huge contradiction issue on our hands with John 6:37 (This is important ... Remember the Apostle John wrote both books!!!! I dont think he changed his mind since he was inspired by God!). Jesus couldnt have made it any clearer than by saying by no means will I cast you out in John 6:37. Inaccurate interpretation over the years has led to poor teaching and a poor understanding of this truth. Sadly many well meaning people (some who are saved) are butchering the truth unknowingly. Hebrews 12:5-8 tells us that God only chastens Christians to correct them. As you read this passage in Hebrews notice that while God is chastening the believer He is still their Father! Remember, only Christians have God as their Father (John 8:38-59). Dont miss this. Chastening is totally different from condemning. Believers are no longer under condemnation according to Romans 8:1! Just as our earthly dads disciplined us, so does our Heavenly Father. He loves us and wants us to grow to be more like Christ, not kick us out of the Family of God. When you rebelled as a child did you cease to be a part of your family while your father chastened you? Chastening is about correction not condemnation. We see this clearly in 1 Cor. 5:5 (the man caught in adultery with his fathers wife). Yes his life is in jeopardy, but not his soul. Paul spells this out. When one is living out of the Will of God and not experiencing chastening then we can deduce that the individual isnt in Christ based on the Hebrews passage above. 3. In John 10:27-29 Jesus makes it clear again that no one can snatch us out of the Fathers hand because He has given us eternal life. Given not earned! 4. 1 Cor 6:19-20 tells us who are in Christ that we were bought and are no longer our own. If saved, you no longer have say over your soul and neither does Satan. We now belong to Christ, we are His. When His slaves fall out of line, He convicts & then chastens to bring us back in line. 5. 1 John 5:13 tells us that we can know for certain we have eternal life if we have given our life to Christ. How can we have the assurance that we have eternal life if it isnt eternal? 6. In 1 Pet 1:5 we are told that we are kept by Gods power, not our power or good works! How can one limit the power of God? Our works are a by-product of our faith (whole point of James 2). It is our faith alone in the person and work of Jesus Christ that saves us. Yes, true saving faith is always accompanied by repentance and godly works, but our works dont save us or keep us. It is the blood of Christ alone that saves! Galatians 3:3 reminds us that it is the Spirit that perfects us after our conversion, not us! Remember no one is good. Jesus makes this very clear in Mat. 19:17. If we think our good works need to be added to Christs blood to redeem us then we obviously dont believe there is enough power in the blood, or we have way too lofty a view of ourselves! The Gospel is about what Christ has done for us, not what we have done to earn our salvation. Paul tells us that it is Christs righteousness that makes us acceptable before God (Phil 3:9). The whole point of Galatians Ch. 2 & 3 & Eph 2:8-9 (not to mention every conversion story in the Gospel of John) is to clearly show that we are saved by grace through faith alone. That was the main thrust of the Protestant Reformation. See Part 2 of this article next week or view the entire article online at www. chipleypaper.com.

Where in the world did it go? In fact, that is a very good question. Where does the summer go when it leaves? Is there some place that summer, winter, spring and fall go to chill out? When they get there, what in the world are they doing? Someone suggested, and I will not divulge any names only to say they live in the same residence I do, that as a person gets older time goes faster. I absolutely resemble that comment. This past week I nally adjusted myself to my summertime schedule. I do not know about anybody else, but it takes me a long time to get into a new schedule. While I am thinking about it, who in the world invented these seasons? Why didnt they let a good thing go? I would much have preferred that we simply divide our time by day or night. If it is dark, for example, it has to be night. And, if the sun is up and it is shining and bright, it must be day. I could live with something like that. At least I would know what time it really was. I was actually wallowing in a hopeless spirit of despondency. What is a person to do? Then something rather strange happened. One of my friends was playing football and his rst game was on a Saturday morning. I thought maybe the distraction might cheer me up a little bit and encourage me to keep on keeping on. I cannot remember the last time I was at a football game. Of course that does not mean too much, I cannot remember what I had for lunch yesterday. It was good to get into a different venue, and air out my soul. Then it hit me. No, not the football, although that might have helped to a certain degree. But a thought hit me, which is just about as rare as being hit by a football at a football game. I had just gotten into the spirit of watching the game when all of a sudden I heard a whistle and a coach yelled, Timeout. At that moment everything stopped. I looked at the clock on the scoreboard and it had stopped. I had forgotten about this little quirk in football. The clock did not start and the game did not commence until the coach yelled, play ball. Or something to that effect. That got me thinking. If they can do that for football, why cant we do that for life? After all, life is far more important than a football game. Who is that coach that yells, Timeout, and everybody stops? What kind of authority does he have? We need to bring this kind of thinking into life in general. It seems to me that everything in life is thought out in great detail except actually living life. Football has been well thought out and is comprised of rules and regulations. Baseball the same. Hockey... Well maybe not so much hockey. Most games are well thought out, have rules to live by, and if something isnt going the way it is supposed to go, the coach has the privilege of yelling Timeout. How many times could I have used this little rule in my life?

TIMEOUT from page B4that many a times. I think it would be rather nice if when I realize what I have just said, to be able to yell Timeout. Then do it over again. The other day one of my checks from my checking account bounced. That would have been a perfect time to yell timeout and redo the whole thing. There are so many things in life that could bene t from this one little thing called timeout. I suggest that we began implementing this into our daily life. After all, our daily life is much more important than a football game, a hockey game, or a baseball game. I think whenever something goes awry we should have the privilege to stop it right in its tracks and do it over again. It does not matter how many times we have to do it over again, we continue doing it over until we get it right. It would make life more exciting if I knew that if I made a mistake I could call Timeout, do a do-over, and make everything right. I think we need to have a very stern conversation with good old Father Time. He is so much a stickler for time marching on. But sometimes you get tired of marching and need to sit down and take a breather. Then sometimes, you need to change the direction in which you are marching. It is not so bad the time marches on but when it needs to turn around and march the other way that is a completely different story. In thinking further along this line, I discovered God already has a Timeout plan. I found it in 1 John 1:9 (KJV), If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. With this in mind, I certainly want to take full advantage of Gods Timeout plan. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

B8| Washington County News/Holmes County Times Advertiser Wednesday, September 26, 2012 emeraldcoastjobs.com Employment Today By PETER VOGTMonster Senior Contributing Writer Only a parent could offer the kind of advice Jessica Donnelly got when she started her first job: My old-fashioned mother warned me to have my clothes ready and bag packed the night before, says Donnelly, a 2005 Marist College graduate who works for a New York City-based public relations firm. She also told me to eat a good breakfast and arrive early. It turns out Moms seemingly simplistic advice was more valuable than Donnelly thought. Those little precautions helped to make a nerve-filled morning run more smoothly, she says. Your first day of work will help define you in the eyes of your new co-workers. Make a good first impression, and soon you will be viewed as a capable, respected colleague. But a bad first impression could mean months or years of trying to undo the damage. Heres what you can do both before and during your start date to be remembered for all the right reasons.Before your first day Relearn how to sleep: Two weeks before your first day, start establishing the sleep habits youll follow when your new job begins. If youre usually out well past midnight on weeknights, get home earlier or, even better, stay home more often than not. And if you know your new job will require you to wake up at 6 a.m. to catch a 7 a.m. train, start going to bed at 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. Most new graduates underestimate how exhausting it is to work a full eight hours, says Carol Vellucci, assistant to the president for communications at Towson University. Study the organization: The more you know about your new company and its activities before you start, the faster youll get up to speed. I read everything I could on the company to prepare myself for my first day, says Mike Adorno, an Ithaca College graduate who works for Articulate Communications in New York City. That included not only Articulates website but also its clients websites.On your first day Bring a notebook and use it: Youll be meeting new people and trying to remember their names, learning about office procedures, becoming familiar with the work environment and discovering how your work fits in with that of your department and colleagues. All of this information can be overwhelming. No one can remember it all, says Michael Smith, a professor of mass communications at Campbell University who teaches a course for his departments interns. So write it down. Listen and ask questions more than you talk: When you were in job search mode, it probably took awhile to adjust to talking about yourself and your many outstanding skills and achievements. Now its time to listen and ask questions instead. No one likes a mouthy know-it-all, says Patrick Gray, president of consulting firm Prevoyance Group. Keeping your ears open can turn into a competitive advantage when youre able to crack the culture of your new home more quickly and become a more productive and insightful employee. Be ready for indifference or instant action: You might be welcomed to the organization with apparent indifference no cubicle, no security badge or even no work to do, says Gray. Keep a smile on your face, and go with the flow for the first couple of days, he says. Things will usually get sorted out. On the other hand, dont be surprised if youre tossed right into the proverbial fire. Thats what happened to Cara Chancellor, a 2006 Yale University graduate who works for public relations firm OConnell and Goldberg. The company immediately called upon Chancellors fluency in French to pursue a media placement. Six French phone calls and innumerable French emails later, we secured an interview with Le Monde, the largest and most popular newspaper in France, she says. What a way to start the day and a new job.
