W.D.Williams Newspaper celebrates 120th Anniversary BONIFAY The year was 1892, and W.D. Wil liams established the Holmes County Adver tiser at old Cerro Gor do, which was then the county seat. According to an ar ticle published in the Advertiser on Oct. 8, 1921, and cited in the Heritage of Holmes County, Cerro Gordo was then the county seat. The Holmes County Advertiser was found ed, owned and operat ed by four generations of the Williams family. The exact spot where the building stood in which the first edition was printed is marked by the channel of the Choctawhatchee River, and all that is left of old Cerro Gordo is the memory and the little wooden jail, which is now less than twenty feet of the rapidly cav ing banks of the river, soon to be washed in and leaving nothing save the giant oaks to mark the spot where once was enacted the stirring scenes of those pioneer days, the ar ticle stated. The first edition of the Advertiser carried the motto Labor is Honest and Pluck Wins, a mot to that remained on the front page for decades. The motto was de scribed as this pithy sentence as its guiding rule, and it is certainly appropriate to say that it has required both la bor and pluck in gener ous quantities to bring thepaper through the strenuous years of its existence. The newspaper was burned out twice, with no insurance. It was Full Story Page B1 Serving Bonifay since 1986

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, November 28, 2012 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Associate Director of Membership Development for the Florida League of Cities Sharon Berrian was present of the behalf of the League to honor Bonifay City Council member Roger Brooks for his 30 years of elected service during the Bonifay City Councils regularly scheduled meeting on Monday. This is in honor of not only your dedication to Bonifay but to our state and to the cities throughout our state, Berrian said. This is in recognition of the fact that you have provided a lifetime of dedicated service to your citizens, and I want you to know I really feel honored to be here tonight to present this resolution to you on behalf of the Florida League of Cities. Berrian then read the resolution to the council and residents in attendance. Berrian said she was honored to be there and noted the Florida League of Cities would be honoring Brooks on their website, Facebook and Twitter as well as at their headquarters. Its never been about me, Brooks said. Its always about the people. Resident Ray Brooks came before the council with concerns about the streets of Bonifay. Brooks pointed out there are many roads with broken pavement and indentures because of water leaks. Mayor Lawrence Cloud explained that the city was aware of every issue he brought up and that these issues were because of their previous contractor and the city was getting in contact with the contractor to correct their mistakes. The only drawback would be if the contractor refused to correct the damage because the one-year warrantee is up. Whats to stop the same thing happening again during this project? Ray Brooks asked. Im concerned that the streets of Bonifay being worse off then when before the project began. Cloud assured the man the difference this time is that they increased their inspectors from one to three. Weve learned from our previous project and I know this time will be better, Cloud said. City Superintendent Jack Marell also informed Brooks it is mandatory that all inspectors update the city on a regular and timely basis. The council was informed that there still were two local businesses in volition of the grease trap ordinance and needed to be dealt with. The council approved of Council member Richard Woodhams suggestion of sending the business a letter, have the local agency pump their grease trap for them and add the bill to their water bill. That way if they dont pay then their services will be disconnected until they do, Woodham said. The council approved of paying Baxters Asphalt $1,131 for paving Varner Street. The council also approved of granting Jack Locke access to the easement already granted to Verizon to their cell phone tower. It wont change anything and the city wouldnt be liable for anything, City Attorney Lucas Taylor said. Its just giving them permission to use a path thats already being used and maintained by Verizon. Cloud announced they received a praise report from a local resident for the paving of McGee Road. Its rare for us to get a thank you, Cloud said. When we do get a thank you it is greatly appreciated. The next regularly scheduled Bonifay City Council meeting is set for 6 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Bonifay City Hall.

Nicole P. Bare eld, Publisher Randal Seyler, Editor Cameron Everett, Production Supervisor Home delivery subscribers may be charged a higher rate for holiday editions. When the rst edition of the Holmes County Advertiser went to press on Aug. 11, 1892, my greatgrandfather, John Coleman Wells, and his wife, Lucinda Speigner Wells, had already settled in Holmes County. It was in the early 1880s that my ancestors moved to the area, bringing three small children with them, including my grandfather, James Thomas Wells, daughter Mary Elizabeth Wells and a second son, Jasper Green Wells. Their rst home was west of Bonifay on what was named Wells Hill, now Boswell Hill, with the road there so-named. Reportedly, my great-grandfather came here for employment providing cross ties for the P. and A. Railroad, which was being built through the area at the time. His date of death, Feb. 3, 1894, came when the Holmes County Advertiser was less than two years old. When my grandparents, James Thomas Wells and Hannah Malinda Wells, married on Sept. 18, 1894, they spent the rst year of the marriage in a log camp where he was engaged in cutting timber and cross ties, while Grandma became the cook for the logging crew. Their rst home was in Washington County, approximately six miles from Bonifay, where he purchased land and set up a farming operation where he remained throughout life. My father, Hugh Thomas Wells, was the last son born into that marriage, with two daughters following. My parents, Hugh and Marie Harris Wells, never moved from the only home they ever had, a property that is still in the family and is at the corner of Lee and Brackin Road. When your writer came into the world on August 24, 1927, as the second in the series of eight children of the above parents, the Holmes County Advertiser was a young 35-yearold newspaper. It began in Cerro Gordo, on the western shores of the Choctowhatchee River. Its rst editor was William Davis Williams, later known far and wide as Old W. D. The publication survived some hard times, including two res, missing a few issues of the paper and forced to cease operations for a while when the county seat of Holmes County moved to Bon ay from Westville. In 1907, the Advertiser again came to life at its new plant in Bonifay and soon regained its strength. The weekly paper continued with editors E. A. Williams and N. DeVane Williams, prior to passing it to other ownerships. Now it has reached the 120 anniversary as the Holmes County Times-Advertiser. The Prattler does not remember a time when the Holmes County Advertiser was not a regular xture in our home. Our grandfather, a rather frugal man, walked the half mile to our home when he knew the paper had arrived on Friday, its day of publication at the time. He relied heavily on Editor Williams in guiding his views and ultimately his vote, especially on state and national issues. Your writer recalls the mysterious masthead on the paper, Labor is Honest, and Pluck Wins, but doesnt recall ever having the courage to inquire as to what it meant. Now I know that The American Heritage Desk Dictionary gives one of the de nitions of the word as resourceful courage and daring in the face of dif culties. This statement leads your writer to the conclusion that the early editors coined their masthead phrase for the historic newspaper, which was to become a household necessity for readers in Holmes County and the surrounding area. Bonifay was the convenient place my parents chose to get married. It was on Sept. 12, 1925, that the two slipped into the courthouse and were married by County Judge J. R. Carswell, with the ceremony witnessed by Ira C. Bush and Mrs. Katie Yates, who happened to be in the courthouse at the time. My dad always said that he turned 20 years old on Sept. 9 and three days later went before a judge and swore that he was 21. In my upbringing, the statement from my parents of going to town was synonymous with going to Bonifay. It was in Bonifay where my father entered into an agreement with N. D. Miller Wholesale Company to furnish him baby chicks to be grown into layer hens with the eggs to be sold to the supplier. Bonifay was his rst peddling route for home grown vegetable and other farm products. Randall Roberts remembers Hugh Wells for the fresh purple top turnips greens that he uprooted, washed to a glowing cleanliness and delivered to Bonifay merchants just as they opened for business. Randall states those greens were on the table for the working men of the town at noon that very day. Our mothers only full brother, Edward Harris, was an early barber in the town of Bonfay. He reportedly was cutting hair at the Faro Lewis Barbershop at the age of 17 and continued his trade until his old age, while also serving as a Primitive Baptist Minister. He and our Aunt Lela, daddys oldest sister, were our connection with townsfolk early in life. Bonifay was the place where brothers, Jim and Perry Wells, along with Earl Barber, were treated to our rst picture show, provided by our teacher at Brackin School, Gertrude Farrell, as our reward for not missing a day of school during the rst semester. Later, it was our sad experience to observe that movie theater burn to the ground on a Saturday night as the town was lled with late shoppers. Christmas shopping also meant a trip into Bonifay for the Wells children. With our allotted quarter, or later 50 cents, we learned how to do some serious comparisons before parting with our money. It was in Pelts 5 and 10 cent store that our youthful brother, Clyde, asked the clerk, Lettie Clark, if she had change for 50 cents that he planned to use in his rst purchase of a Big-Little Book, the forerunner of all comic books and priced at a nickel. In adulthood, the country folk became more acquainted and integrated with townspeople. Your writer met and married Esto girl, Hester Lucas, who graduated from Holmes County High School in 1945. Jack Tison, a 1943 graduate from the same school, married my sister in 1949. Other Holmes County folk met at my University of Florida days include Shouppe Howell (later Superintendent of Schools), Howard Strickland (served later as Tax Assessor), Clifford McGriff, Paul Belser and many others not listed here. Congratulations to the present day Holmes County Times-Advertiser who has brought the paper to the 120th year of providing news to the citizens of the area. With their commitment to continue to bring the news in an accurate and speedy manner, subscribers to the local paper can look forward to many more years of service form their hometown newspaper. See you all next week. BONIFAY Cecilia asked me to write something commemorating the birthday of the Advertiser which was a part of my family all my life. Jack and I were already subscribers when our oldest son was maybe 8 or 9 years old (about 1960), and the publisher sponsored a subscription promotion in which they offered a bicycle to the student who sold the most subscriptions. Renewals counted too and with our help, Hiram sold the most and was awarded the bicycle. The Holmes County Advertiser and The Chipley Banner as far as I can remember came to our home on Bonifay Route One, the Advertiser on Friday and the Banner on Thursday. Though there were no comics in the weeklies as there were in the daily paper, I enjoyed looking at the social page with pictures of brides and the description of their dresses, their weddings and their parties. My dad, if he was home when the mail came, would read portions aloud, which annoyed my mother as she preferred to read it for herself when she had a few minutes to take a breather from the chore of cooking and serving a meal. Grandpa Wells walked up the hill to our house to read the Advertiser. Later, in high school, I liked to read the review of the local sports. I remember reading the account of my alma mater, Vernons basketball game. They called us a scrappy team. I asked the coach why they used such a derogatory term. He explained that they meant the team was willing to ght to win. Spirited, not made up of bits and pieces as I thought of scraps. To prepare for this article, I went and perused some 1948 copies of the Holmes County Advertiser. There were only 3 grocery stores that were advertised: Manuel Grocery and Market and J .S. Hasty, both in north Bonifay, and Pick and Pay Supermarket, which advertised large cans of tomatoes for 13 cents and cooking oil for $2.99 per gallon. I know there were other grocery stores in town. Just south of the pool hall were Methvins and O.K. Williams, which became O.J. Carnleys. Only three businesses operating today with the same name were found: Padgett Drugs, Miller and Jerkins (Jerkins Inc.) and Miller Service Station, which advertised seed oats and seed potatoes. Bonifay boasted at least three clothing stores: Evans, Schienbergs and R. E. Barkers Cash Store. Peacocks Dry Cleaners, L.& K Restaurant, Kings Radio Service, A. B. Dykes, watchmaker and jeweler R. L. Dowling, Rich Feed and Seed and Johnsons Furniture store all were advertised. C. Thomas advised, Dont throw those shoes away. Have them repaired at Thomas Shoe Shop. In the classi eds a seven-foot kerosene refrigerator was advertised. Bonifay had a theater in 1948 and advertised the movie, I Wonder Whos Kissing Her Now. On the front page was a news story about the upcoming movie, The Best Years of Our Lives, the rst three hour movie since Gone With The Wind. The Personal Mention column reported on local business and social happenings in and around the town. The outlying areas had their own columns. I have mentioned before that Mrs. Nix Nelson wrote the Bonifay Route One News. There were also reports from Live Oak, Open Pond, Otter Creek, Isagora and others, I am sure. They all told church happenings, who had the u, who visited within the community, who ate Sunday dinner with whom, who went on a business trip to Bonifay or Dothan. A regular school section was in each issue. Sonny Lutz wrote several articles for the high school section. Four-H news reported Mike Carroll of RT. 2 entered the district poultry show at Chipley and received $5.75 prize money for his best of show entry. Lavell Pennington won 3rd place on her egg exhibit and Ernie Halls exhibit of Japanese Silkies attracted a lot of attention in his division. In other farm news, it was announced the Carl Colombi was preparing for a large demand for sweet potato draws. The Farmers Market was buying all kinds of greens, broccoli, collards cabbage, carrots, cauli ower, long green cucumbers, parsley, parsnips, spinach, sweet corn and turnip tops. The Bank of Bonifay listed its cash balance, balances with other banks, reserve balance and cash items in process of collection as $902,280.67 signed by E. J. Folmer, cashier, J.W. Van Landingham, H.B. Douglas and A. P. Drummond. Several items of news: Edward A. Williams Jr. was among the 300 to graduate from The University of Florida with a Bachelor of Arts in education. Shouppe Howell made the deans list at U of F Miss Edna Jean Brock, Bonifay Route 1 was home from Florida State College for Women visiting her family. Judge B. Helms announced his candidacy for Clerk of Courts. In fact there were several political announcements. Lonnie Hagan, pool hall operator, was running for constable as was Gus Urquhart, taxi driver. On the same page the current constable was charged along with 3 others with breaking and entering, public drunkenness and reckless driving. Sounds like it was time for a change. The Holmes County Times Advertiser has been an integral part of the history and development of Holmes County. It has always been based on sound journalistic practices. It has always supported community endeavors. It has always upheld strong moral and family values. It has been the glue that has held our community together. May it ever be so.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Wednesday, November 28, 2012 Special to The Times-Advertiser BONIFAY Sixty Japanese women educators recently became part of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, a professional honor society for women educators with more than 90,000 members. Established in 18 countries around the world, Japan represents the rst Asian nation in the organization. More than 45 local women belong to Delta Theta Chapter of the society. Elizabeth Bell from Marianna is the chapter president. Delta Theta member Dr. Beverly Helms, international president, ew to Japan to of ciate in the founding of the Japan state organization and initiation of members. The founding of the Japanese arm of the organization took place Oct. 14 in Kochi-Shi, Japan, on the island of Shikoku. Kochi Prefecture Gov. Masano Ozaki and Mayor Seiya Okazaki were present to applaud the 60 women educators being initiated and installed into the society. The governor presented a gift to Helms as the of cial representative of the organization. Opening our organization to Asia adds a new aspect of cultural experience and educational understanding for our members, Helms said. I was honored to serve as the international president. This expansion of our society into Japan will help to solidify the bonds of women educators worldwide. We can create many opportunities for collaborative problem-solving, cultural sharing and the development of friendships across borders. As leading women educators, impacting education worldwide, DKG is honored to accept Japan into our organization. Wearing a kimono, sharing in a formal tea service and trying the local food were also very interesting. This initiation/installation ceremony came at the heels of the New York International Convention, where the International Executive Board approved the expansion of the society into Japan. Seven Kochi women educators attended the convention of about 2,000 members with sponsors from Hawaii. The society de nes its mission as promoting professional and personal growth of women educators and excellence in education. Regional conferences for members will be in July and August 2013 in ve locations. Japan will join its sponsoring organization Hawaii in the Southwest Region, which will meet in Branson, Mo.; Southeast Region will meet in Orlando; Northeast Region in Portland, Ore.; Northwest Region in Cheyenne, Wyo.; and Europe Region in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The honor organization of key women educators was formed in Austin, Texas, on May 11, 1929, by Dr. Annie Webb Blanton from a nucleus of 12 founders representing all levels of education, kindergarten through university. Professor of rural education at the University of Texas, Blanton was elected president of the Texas State Teachers Association in 1916, the rst woman to hold that ofce. She was also the rst woman to serve Texas as State Superintendent of Public Instruction, having been elected in 1918. Society Headquarters is near the capitol in downtown Austin.

Legendary Marine wins prestigious dealership award SPECIAL TO THE NEWS/TIMES ADVERTISER We just won the Super Bowl or World Series of boat dealers, said Legendary Marines Wanda Kenton. Fishin tradition After watching folks for 31 days straight in October bring in their catches during the Destin Fishing Rodeo, when November rolls around the angler in me is ready to reel in a few of her own. Earlier this week, my brother Jerry and I headed toward Apalachicola in search of Mr. Trout, just like we have for the past 30 years give or take a few years. We launched his 17-foot ats boat at Bay City Lodge and headed down the St. Marks River. It didnt take long to nd Mr. Trout at home. The rst trout to answer the door wasnt quite as big as I had hoped, but the big ones came later. Using a 6 feet long rod and Shimano spinning reel loaded with 15-pound test Power Pro Braid and a blue and chartreuse Bass Assassin Sea Shad with a ounce jig head, it didnt take long to get a hook up. On the rst stop and about the second cast, it was sh on. Jerry was still getting the trolling motor set and I was already in business. It wasnt quite big enough, but it made for a hopeful day. It wasnt long after Jerry had a sh on, but again it was about an inch to short. The bag limit for speckled trout is ve per day and it has to fall in the 15-20 inch slot. Included in that ve per day, anglers can take one bigger than 20 inches. Although the rst few sh were not in the slot, theres nothing like the tug on the line to get the adrenaline pumping. Bouncing the grub off the bottom, I nally pulled in a keeper that measured 18 inches. At that point, Jerry and I decided we were in the right spot and we worked it hard. We managed to reel in two or three that werent even in question as to whether they fell into the slot limit if you catch my drift. Besides just being in one of the most serine areas around, I love all the shermen you run into on the river you never meet a stranger. Conversation often goes like this. Doin any good? Weve caught a few. Any size to em? Weve got a few 18-inchers. How about yall? Were doin OK. Weve got a few. Sure this all sounds good, but you never know with shermen if they are stretching the truth or holding out on you because they dont want to give away any secrets for fear you may get their honey hole. But one thing is for sure they are always friendly. Even the folks we passed on the back roads driving down to Bay City Lodge were friendly. I dont think we passed a vehicle where the driver didnt throw up a hand and wave. You just dont see that much anymore. Anyhow, back to shing. We did quite well on Monday and went back for more the next day. We tried some different spots on Tuesday. Jerry changed out his color of grub he went to one called candy corn. If you were to see it you would know how it got its name the coloring of the grub looks just like the candy that the kids get on Halloween. Fishing was good down on the grass ats, if you like catching the small ones. After an hour or so of reeling in those 14-inchers, we headed back to the area we were Monday. Id tell where that was, but if I did my brother would kill me. Ive already given up more than he would like. Jerry was the winner on Tuesday with the biggest trout coming in at 21 inches I guess kids are not the only ones that like candy corn.

Harold Armstrong rushed for two touchdowns and Liberty County held Blountstowns offense in check for a 14-7 win in the Region 2-1A championship. Liberty County, winners of nine in a row, advanced to host the winner of Bratt Northview, which defeated Freeport 35-28 in overtime, in next weeks state semifinal. Blountstown finished the season 7-5. Its the Bulldogs deepest postseason run and first semifinal appearance in Granthams seven seasons at the school. Grantham sported the shorts he started wearing after a 1-2 start. Well retire them after two more wins, Grantham said. The long-standing rivalry saw the first postseason matchup between the schools seperated by a bridge and a few right turns. It was a rematch of a regular-season game won by Liberty County that helped the Bulldogs (10-2) secure control of District 4-1A. That game featured two big passing plays to give Liberty County a 14-0 halftime lead. The Bulldogs led again at half, this time 7-0 when Armstrong capped a 17-play drive with a 1-yard run early in the second quarter. The drive encompassed 80 yards and the Bulldogs also were forced to punt, fumbled and ended their third possession as the half expired. Both defenses stood tall in the first 24 minutes, the teams combining for just 183 yards. Blountstown had 78 of those yards and squandered an early chance for points. Liberty County forced a three-and-out on the games first drive, but the ball touched a Bulldog returner and Blountstown took over at the 25. The drive ended when Andrew Bennets 24-yard field goal was wide right. Blountstowns second possession was stunted with a Alex Marlowe interception in the end zone and the Tigers also punted twice. We had it down there and missed an oportunity and in the playoffs you cant do that, Blountstown coach Greg Jordan said. Theres no doubt you need to get points there. Grantham credited his defense, which held Blountstown to 79 yards rushing, with making the critical early stand. The offense went on to 14 unanswered points, adding a 9-yard Armstrong scoring run in the third. Blountstown finally cracked the scoreboard on Alex Mayorgas 7-yard reception from Hunter Jordan with 26 seconds left in the game. Jordan, who was 7 of 20 for 128 yards, didnt get a chance to tie the game, as Liberty County recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock with a kneel down. We didnt play our best, made some mistakes, but thats a credit to them, coach Jordan said. Liberty County also wasnt explosive on offense, but the Bulldogs did enough against a Tigers defense that had shut out three of their four previous opponents. Marlowe led all rushers with 55 yards, while Armstrong added 38. Grantham and the Bulldogs will look to extend their streak to 10 at home next week. I always say I dont mind going on the road, Grantham said. But it will be nice to play here and this team has played well at home all year.

Washington, Holmes at a glance B Section By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY One-hundred twenty years ago, the rst Holmes County Times-Advertiser went to print on its very own printing press located at the very same location it is today on Virginia Avenue in Bonifay. I remember the caption that was across every edition of the paper, said local resident and Kiwanis Club President Carlton Treadwell. It read, Labor is Honest and Pluck Wins, and we used to send a copy to a relative in the southern Paci c, and his buddies would ask what it meant, if anything. Pluck means persistence, durability and a drive to nish what youve started. Treadwell said the paper was important to the Holmes County community. It was very important, Treadwell said. It was the main source of news for the county. You had the paper, and then you had gossip, but that was it. The lifeline during those days was the carriers, Treadwell said. Most of the people lived in rural areas, and the newspapers were delivered by rural carriers, he said. Most of the time, those in the rural areas would get their Wednesday paper by Friday and was served through Black, Ala., Route 1. Carriers were very nice and used to buy things from the store if you needed them, so they were just the means of getting the paper. The biggest population at that time was in Bethlehem, Treadwell said. Bethlehem had the biggest school at the time, he said. That was back when farming wasnt all that expensive and was pro table. He said in those days, the residents of Holmes County were self-suf cient. They survived on cane syrup, eggs, pork, corn, ground their own meal, grew their own food, got milk from cows, made their own butter, Treadwell said. People lived on ham, eggs and bacon, but that was it. There were no televisions and hardly any radios, and thats why the newspaper was so important for getting the news. He said he remembered the paper had its own printing press, complete with workers having to melt their own lead to reform the letters for printing. He also remembers former editor Ed Williams. He was a long, tall and thin man who smoked cigars and always had an awful lot of work to be done, Treadwell said. He was always in a running t to get it in the mail and out on time, but he had help from his boys. As far back as Treadwell could remember, Ed Williams was the editor. Ed Williams was an old man in 1940, and being the editor of the paper was all hed ever done, Treadwell said, trying to contemplate if Williams was the rst editor of the Holmes County Times-Advertiser. Williams sons were DeVane and Edward Williams II. Edward Williams II became postmaster, but by then the paper was owned by someone else, and DeVane Williams was editor until the day he died. After Nolan DeVane Williams died, Orren Smith, who married Williams daughter Dianne, became the publisher, Treadwell said. He was publisher of the paper for the longest time, he said. Smith, great-granddaughter of the original owner, Edward A. Williams, said four generations of her family owned and edited the paper for almost a century, from the time it was established in 1892 till the paper was sold to the Woodhams in 1981. When I was in my pre-teens and early teens, I would come in on Saturday mornings and afternoons and fold the Baptist Churchs announcements for $1, she said. Back then, that was enough to go to the movies and pay for candy and popcorn. She remembered when things broke on the press that her grandfather and father could x it, but it would be a stress to get the papers out. They would take all of the sheets and go down to the house, which was where the A-Plus Pharmacy is now, and they would lay it out on a big table, Smith said. Then the women of the family would fold all the papers to get them ready to go out. The whole family would pitch in those days. She said she and her husband had left but would nd themselves back home and back in the newspaper business. I never knew my great-grandfather, E.A. Williams, who was actually editor and publisher longer then anyone, Smith said. When he retired, my father became publisher and editor, and when he became ill, my husband and I bought the paper from him. My husband was the one really in charge, she said. I helped with writing weddings. I wrote about the wedding dress, the reception, and (there) was usually a nice write-up about their wedding in general. Her mother, Smith said, wrote about the local weddings, and then she followed suit. Weddings and obituaries were always very important to the community, she said. Obituaries were always important, and if the person was known by the editor or well known in the community, the editor would say a few words about them. Obituaries were always owery, praising the persons life, but eventually that changed to be more matter of fact and straight to the point. These events fell under the category of social news. There was a woman by the name of Lilie Harrell, and she was one of the social editors, writing columns about visitors and weddings, Smith said. Thats something the papers dont do anymore.

Williams established the Holmes County Advertiser at old Cerro Gordo, which was then the county seat. According to an article published in the Advertiser on Oct. 8, 1921, and cited in the Heritage of Holmes County, Cerro Gordo was then the county seat. The Holmes County Advertiser was founded, owned and operated by four generations of the Williams family. The exact spot where the building stood in which the rst edition was printed is marked by the channel of the Choctawhatchee River, and all that is left of old Cerro Gordo is the memory and the little wooden jail, which is now less than twenty feet of the rapidly caving banks of the river, soon to be washed in and leaving nothing save the giant oaks to mark the spot where once was enacted the stirring scenes of those pioneer days, the article stated. The rst edition of the Advertiser carried the motto Labor is Honest and Pluck Wins, a motto that remained on the front page for decades. The motto was described as this pithy sentence as its guiding rule, and it is certainly appropriate to say that it has required both labor and pluck in generous quantities to bring the paper through the strenuous years of its existence. The newspaper was burned out twice, with no insurance. It was forced to temporarily suspend publication twice, was published in Cerro Gordo, Westville and Bonifay, and had been printed in a dozen or more towns and cities all in the rst 29 years of the newspapers existence. W.D. Williams served as editor except for the year 1908, when W.D. Brett Jr. took control of the newspaper. However, the Williams family resumed control in 1909, when Edward Arthur Williams Sr. became editor and publisher. Edward Williams guided the newspaper and provided leadership to the county through some of the nations most trying times World War I, the Great Depression and World War II. Because of his long tenure at the helm of the newspaper, he, more than anyone else, molded the philosophy and tradition of a family-owned publication that became a Holmes County institution, according to the Heritage of Holmes County. Edward was the youngest son of founder W.D. Williams, and he began learning the newspaper business at an early age. By the time he was 15, he already had assumed a leading role in the papers publication. Before taking over from his father in 1909, Edward worked brie y for the Carrabelle Advertiser. He also worked brie y for the Marianna Times, only to return to Holmes County when his father called him back to take over after the county seat was moved from Westville to Bonifay and the newspaper also moved to Bonifay. In a 1929 editorial celebrating the 36th anniversary of the Holmes County Advertiser, Edward wrote: That old epigram, It takes a lot of living to make a house a home, is familiar to all. Perhaps few have thought to apply it to a newspaper, however. It takes a lot of living to make a publication a home newspaper. The publication must participate in the joys and sorrows, the problems and perplexities, as well as the triumphs and successes, of a people for a long time before it becomes a real integral part of their home life. It must struggle for them, sacri ce for them, suffer for them before it becomes one of them. This is what the Advertiser has aimed to do. In 1949, Nolan DeVane Williams took his fathers place as editor and publisher and ran the newspaper until its sale in 1981 to Larry and Merle Woodham, newspaper publishers in DeFuniak Springs and Florala, Ala. The Holmes County Advertiser remained within the Williams family for 99 years. The Woodhams took possession of the Advertiser in 1981 from Williams relatives, Orren and Dianne Williams Smith. Woodham was the fourth generation in a family of newspaper publishers. His two great-uncles started in the newspaper business in 1917, followed by his grandfather, then his father and mother, according to an article published in the Wednesday, March 11, 1992, issue of the Advertiser. The Woodhams were natives of Alabama and owned four other newspapers The DeFuniak Springs Herald-Breeze, The BeachBreeze in South Walton County, The Beach Bay News in Panama City and The Florala News. In 2003, the Woodhams sold the Holmes County Advertiser and the Washington County Post to Chipley Newspapers Inc. According to CNI President Maurice Pujol, CNI published the Washington County News and the Holmes County Times, along with the Weekly Advertiser, a free shoppers guide that was distributed in both counties. The merger of the Times and the Advertiser was historic, Pujol said, in that it represents the combination of over two great centuries of newspaper publishing in Washington and Holmes counties. Pujol founded the Holmes County Times in 1989. The late Jack Davis, retired educator and coach, served as the Times rst managing editor until his death in 1992. Davis was a retired principal, coach and teacher and one of the founders of the Northwest Florida INDEX Society ................................. B3 Faith ....................................

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 Football Conference. He not only served as managing editor of the Holmes County Times, but he was known as an exciting radio color commentator for HCHS football games. He was one of the fairest newspaper reporters Ive ever known, Holmes County Clerk of Circuit Court Cody Taylor said in 1992. He was cordial, objective and he never tried to embarrass anyone, yet his work was always in-depth and thorough. Upon his death in 1992 in an automobile accident, the Times began the tradition of awarding Jack Davis Memorial Award to the outstanding boy and girl athletes of Holmes County each year, a tradition that still continues. According to Pujol, the Times continued to gain popularity with readers and advertisers throughout the 1990s. It became the countys rst full-color newspaper as the decade ended and a new millennium dawned. Pujol came to the News in 1974 after a stint as a reporter for the Panama City News-Herald and was named publisher in 1979. CNI was established in 1983. We see this merger as an opportunity not only for our business, but also for all the communities which we serve throughout the two counties, Pujol said in 2003. We take seriously our responsibility to serve as a voice of the people, an example of professional journalism and a force for community service and development. Cameron Everett, a Holmes County native, was on hand for the transition to CNI in 2003, and he still works for the newspaper today as production supervisor. Cameron even worked part-time for the News while he was still attending Holmes County High School and also helped out at the Advertiser under Orren Smith at the time, Pujol said. In January 2007, Freedom Communications purchased the Washington County News and the Holmes County TimesAdvertiser, along with the Crestview News Bulletin in Crestview and the Santa Rosa Press Gazette in Milton. Nicole Bare eld became the publisher of the Holmes and Washington County newspapers. When I came to the Times-Advertiser in 2007, I was surprised to learn how distinct and close-knit the county communities were, and how everyone had a story to tell, Bare eld said. Its been a privilege these last ve years to help tell the stories through the newspaper and share the proud heritage of Holmes County and its people. In June of this year, Halifax Media took ownership of the Holmes County TimesAdvertiser and the Washington County News when the company purchased the Panama City News Herald and the rest of Freedoms Newspapers in Florida and North Carolina. Other Florida newspapers involved in the transaction were The Star in Port St. Joe, The Walton Sun in Santa Rosa Beach, The Crestview News Bulletin, The Destin Log, the Northwest Florida Daily News in Fort Walton Beach, and The Santa Rosa Press Gazette and the Santa Rosa Free Press in Milton. At Halifax Media Group, we believe in the future of newspapers, said Michael Redding, CEO of Halifax Media Group. The purchase of Freedoms Florida and North Carolina properties further demonstrates our commitment to newspapers, not only for their value as an investment, but for the value they provide to the communities they serve. These properties provide a perfect extension to our recently acquired New York Times Regional Newspaper Group papers and re ect our interest in preserving community journalism for many years to come.

Another woman she said she remembered covering social news was Ann Brown. This was something she wanted to do after her husband, Clyde Brown, died, Smith said. She was really good at getting the social news. She knew a lot of people. Smith said the trend of putting in the social news continued until the Smiths eventually sold the paper. Smith remembered several people who worked at the paper during her and her husbands tenure. Mr. Savage and his son, Jimmy, used to work there for a long time, she said. Both very good at working with the press and setting type. Another set of people she remembered were Wayne Marsh and his wife, Nancy. She said Edward Williams II and Tom Douglass both worked at the paper until they were old enough to leave home. Both Williams II and Douglass joined the military, one in the Navy and one in the Army. Williams II went on to become postmaster in Bonifay after graduating from the University of Florida, and Douglass attended Florida State University and then went on to work with various newspapers, Smith said. Edward started printing and publishing The Gator Post, a paper for the Post Masters Association. All of the printing was done here. We were living in South Carolina, and my husband, Orren Smith, was working for IBM when my father got sick, she said. We bought the paper from my father, and Orren began working with no newspaper experience. He thought he could learn it, so my daddy taught him what he needed to know, and Orren ended up doing a wonderful job. Orren did a column called Now Hear This, which was the personal opinions of the editor and what Smith said was an answer to her fathers own column. They would sometimes write about things that were controversial, she said. My husband would do that more often then my father had. My dad didnt say much that was controversial, but my husband did and would always get a big response. Smith and her husband would run the paper for 17 years. All of our generations that ran the paper were concerned with covering the whole county as much as possible, she said. We had correspondents all over the county. The correspondents would have their own section for county updates that ran with the correspondents picture. This is something that was important to my grandfather, she said. He loved Holmes County. He wouldnt call it Holmes County, hed call it Good Ol Holmes. In 1981, the Smiths decided to sell the paper to a family of newspaper owners, the Woodhams. It was so stressful to get the paper out, and Orren got to wondering if anything should happen to him, who would take care of the paper? Smith said. The Woodhams seemed like a good family of newspaper owners, and we wouldnt have sold it to just anybody. After they sold the paper, both Dianne and Orren went back to school, Orren went to FSU to become an attorney, and Dianne went to become an English teacher. After college, they both went into their prospective elds. Orren got a private practice then went on to work with the states attorney, Jim Appleman, as a prosecutor and then decided he wanted to go to the opposite spectrum and become a public defender, Smith said. He did that until we both retired in 2000. We then enjoyed traveling until his health declined, and now hes in the Bonifay Nursing Home. She said her memories keep going back to the time of the paper. The whole family, including the extended family, we all felt a sense of pride in the Holmes County Times for those years, she said. I remember when it was $1 for a subscription to the paper, and if someone couldnt pay but really wanted it wed then accept payments of things like a mess of turnips, cane syrup, eggs and the like. There were shelves of stuff like that just waiting for granddaddy to pick up and take home. She said the newspaper was very important to the community. This was back before there were radios and television, so there was no other way to for the community to get their news, she said. We had some national news, but it mostly stayed local. We still have parents dying. and when the children go to clean out their belongings theyd nd stacks of old Holmes County Times piled up and saved in a trunk somewhere. Smith said her great-grandfather was known as a Yellow Dog Democrat. He used the paper as the voice of the Democratic Party, and he was very vocal, she said. Grandfather wasnt as vocal, but then just about everyone was a Democrat. There were very few registered Republicans; you could probably count them all on two hands, she said. It changed from being a Democratic paper shortly before my father sold it. Smith and her husband never used it for the Democratic Party, she said. Virtually it was something that everyone looked forward to, she said. It was an important part of their lives. We felt a real kinship and love for the people of Holmes County. She said they wanted a paper people could be proud of. I can still get very nostalgic and a little emotional when thinking of the paper, she said. It was a very dif cult decision to sell something with that much history. He (Orren) had made it nancially stable, and it was the best decision for his family and his newspaper. Stephanie Smith, daughter of Dianne Smith, said she had many fond memories of the Holmes County Times-Advertiser growing up. From ages about 11 to 14, I worked at the paper on Wednesday afternoons, Stephanie Smith said. This was the day when the paper was ready to be mailed to out-of-town subscribers. She said some of her duties including folding each newspaper in half and stuf ng them into brown paper bags, which were sorted by ZIP codes. Needless to say, this job got fairly boring to a young kid after about 100 had been stuffed, she said. I would then entertain myself by looking at the subscriber labels to see if I knew anyone. I distinctly remember one effort to relieve my boredom by drawing a big smiley face on the bag going to my aunt in Atlanta along with a Hello from Florida note. She said her father, however, didnt nd this as amusing. My father, who was a big stickler for rules, was not pleased at my freelance greeting and gave me a long, stern lecture on how I was breaking federal law by writing on U.S. mail, she said. The $3.25 I received for my child labor efforts were not enough to keep me interested in being a full-time bag stuffer, so employer and employee (father and daughter) decided to part work ways for the sake of peace at home. Other strong memories she said of coming from a newspaper family included: The smell of newspaper ink at the Advertiser of ce and on her father when he came home from work Always feeling that she knew what was going on in her town after reading the paper front to back every week Developing an early interest in local politics because of the paper and her parents involvement Only being able to take family vacations from Thursday to Saturday because of the paper schedule and having to be back in town in time for church on Sunday Classmates always being worried about telling her any news or gossip for fear it might end up in the paper Her dad being at most every sporting event in town Holmes County towns sporting events got coverage in the hometown paper as well, she said. I also remember my father taking quite a hit on the sidelines from an errant HCHS football player who ran out of bounds. (Took that hit like a champ and popped back up ready to take more photos!) Stephanie Smith said her family is proud to have owned and run this hometown business for more than 90 years. I feel my father always did his best to report the news in a fair manner with no personal bias, she said. His editorial column, Now Hear This, on the other hand, could be full of personal bias. and I read those weekly columns nervously hoping it would be on something non-family related i.e. not embarrassing for a young, easily embarrassed daughter. I didnt always get my wish, but any embarrassment suffered then has now been forgotten and replaced by pride in knowing that my family kept Holmes County informed for many years. 120 YEARS from page B1 Extra B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser HISTORY from page B1 LARRY AND MERLE WOODHAM JACK DAVIS W.D.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 Extra By RAY REYNOLDS Special to the Times-Advertiser The Advertiser arrived in todays mail. Twenty-ve years out of Esto and 3,000 miles away in California, Im still always happy to get the weekly newspaper from home. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Aging breeds nostalgia. And now I better understand the complaints from people who had moved away I used to hear when I worked at the Advertiser as a teenager. I never know anybody you write about anymore. I have to gure out who their mamas are to place them or their grandmamas. And then: The only names I know are in the obituaries. On the editorial page of this weeks issue (Aug. 21, 1996) I get to E.W. Carswells column. This week its titled The Smells of Summer, and it takes me immediately back home. He writes, The smell of summer is a reminder of the good things summer has made possible mellowing pears, magnolia blossoms, fresh turpentine, overripe muscadines, fresh-sliced tomatoes, new-crop Southern peas or speckled butterbeans being cooked with slices of ham. Summer is the smell of the old chinaberry tree after its waxy fruit had started dropping to the ground. It is the smell of fresh-sliced watermelon or cantaloupe. Unforgettable is the smell of peanut hay, curing in the sunshine. And freshly dug peanuts being boiled outdoors in a wood-fueled pot. I had read this column before. In fact, Judge and I included it in Commotion in the Magnolia Tree, the rst collection of his columns we published in 1981. Maybe I even read it when it was rst published in his regular column on the editorial page of The Pensacola Journal back in the 70s. I might have read it again since the Advertiser started reprinting some of his columns a few years ago. But it didnt matter. Like the smells of summer he was describing, Judge Carswells writing has a timeless quality about it. It has the feeling of home his home, and my home too. This week I recognize something familiar in the Advertiser. I recognize the smells of home. Reynolds is a former editor of the Esto Herald, the Holmes County Advertiser and the San Francisco Daily Journal. Now he turns rst every week to Hazel Tisons Happy Corner. Gretel is a 2to 3-year-old golden-colored Shepherd cross, about 40 to 45 pounds. She is scared at the shelter but was very good on a leash and was much more at ease and friendly once we went outside. She is a beautiful girl but looks like she has been going hungry for a while. She would be so happy and would love you forever if she could only have a home where she was loved, not to mention getting meals on a regular basis! Can you help this sweet girls dream come true? Geoffrey is a 1-year-old male long haired doxie cross, about 20 pounds. He is very cute, sweet and calm. He is a real lover boy, enjoys hugs and petting but not demanding of attention like some young dogs can be. He acts very mature for his age and would be a great pet for someone who wants a small dog to snuggle with. Animal Control of West Florida is at 686 U.S. 90 in Chipley.

Club member Hazel Tison brought a demonstration on sack gardening. She demonstrated planting a potato garden in a large grocery bag, and each student was given a small bag and planted his or her own garden. Several measurable skills were demonstrated: eye-hand coordination, using a 12-inch ruler to measure soil depth, cell division and following directions, just to name a few. Some of the students carried their gardens home in a plastic bag, while others left theirs at school. The sixth-graders asked several relevant questions such as how much to water the plants, where will the potato form and how do you know when to dig them since they are underground. When they produce, Barone will demonstrate how to cook them, and the students will have a potato tasting. On Dec. 12, the same demonstration with the second group of sixth-graders will be conducted by a Bonifay Garden Club member. Contact Sandra Devine (535-2294), DiAnn Shores (768-2766) or Hazel Tison (547-4696) if you would like to be involved in these activities. The ongoing Christmas project with rst-graders at Bonifay Elementary School will be Dec. 11. For more information, call Edna McDonald at 547-2698.

FUMC decorates for Christmas season CHIPLEY The Christmas season is a very important time in the life of our church. We, the congregation of The First United Methodist Church of Chipley, are so glad to invite you to view our historic sanctuary as we have decorated it to the honor of our Lord, Jesus Christ. The service begins at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2. Everyone is welcome to come and worship with us. The First United Methodist Church of Chipley, 1285 Jackson Ave., Chipley. Each year on the rst evening of Advent, we decorate our church for the season. To showcase the beauty of our sanctuary, it is decorated in greenery that accents our 20-foot Chrismon Tree. The Lighting of the Crismon Tree is the highlight of the evening. A chrismon is a Christian symbol representing Jesus Christ. Since early Christianity, the term chrismon has traditionally referred to any symbol or gure reminiscent of the name of Christ, consisting of plain letters typically implying the presence of some kind of calligraphic ornamentation. The Chrismon decorations are always pure white or gold with clear white lights. After the service, we are hosting a Soup and Crackers supper for all who attend. Come join us as we begin our Celebration of the coming of Christ. We are located at the top of the hill, next to the Washington County Courthouse. For more information, call the church at 623-0010.

There will be kids carnival games, a chili supper and a gospel sing. There will be fun for the whole family. By Rev. James L. Snyder, D.Litt Let me make it very clear right up front that I am in favor of as many ha ha moments as possible. I could not get through a week without my daily dose. I rmly believe that laughter is the appropriate medicine for the soul. Some people, according to their demeanor, need a little more laughter than they are presently getting. That said, let me quickly point out that some things are not funny. Of course, most things in my life and about my person are marvelous targets of humor. I do not take myself very seriously. I am not sure any wise person would take me seriously either. In fact, I would highly suspect a person who took me seriously. I can take a joke as well as the next person, and I can give it back as well as the next person. I have had some weeks that if it was not for a little bit of humor I do not know how I would have gotten through. So, if you cant do anything you can at least laugh. I rmly believe that the best laugh is when you can laugh at yourself. You might as well laugh at yourself; everybody else is. Then, there are those serious moments in life that beg for no laughing. I would recommend warning signs be put around these areas reading, Positively No Laughing Zone. With this sign should come a severe penalty for those who violate it. That said; let me explain an area in my life where the sign should be permanently erected. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were having supper with another couple. We try to do this at least once a month and keep up with each others progress or lack thereof. We were having a great meal, and as we came to the end, I stopped the waitress and said, I would like some ice cream for dessert. As far as I am concerned, that is a rather reasonable request and quite in keeping with the environment I was in. What kind of ice cream, she queried, would you like? When it comes to ice cream, ice cream is simply ice cream to me. If there is a avor of ice cream I do not like, it has yet to be invented. I love ice cream. My favorite song is, I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. In my date book, there is no better ending to a wonderful meal than ice cream. I remember my grandfathers favorite ice cream was vanilla. He would not eat any other ice cream; he thought they were polluting it with colors. To him an ice cream sundae was as close to blaspheme as he ever would get. Why ruin, he objected, the ice cream with all that slop? He wanted nothing coming between him and the purest experience of ice cream he could get. Me, I love ice cream regardless of the avor or color or slop. I looked at the waitress and simply said, I dont care what avor you bring me. Surprise me, as long as it isnt broccoli. That was supposed to be a joke. Ha ha ha. As the waitress left our table, we resumed our conversation and shortly she returned with the ice cream. Upon her arrival, I looked at her and then the ice cream she was bringing and almost screamed aloud. Of all the blasphemous things to do to a customer, this has to take the cake. First, she had an ice cream bowl with three scoops of ice cream: vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. No problem. However, on the side of the dish in plain view for everybody to see, especially me, was a piece of broccoli. Broccoli! The forbidden fruit or whatever it is. My dining companions thought this was the funniest thing they had ever seen. Particularly nding it funny was the dining companion that was going to come home with me that night. Not only did they laugh. The waitress laughed. The table next to us began to laugh. The table next to them began to laugh. It was not long before everybody within 173 miles was laughing at my ice cream/ broccoli dessert. Actually, not everybody was laughing. I was not laughing. Broccoli, no matter the presentation, is no laughing matter in my book. If matters could not be worse, my wife, through her hilarity spasms, reached over, picked up the broccoli and began eating it in my presence. Talk about adding insult to injury. My injury was vastly insulted. I may have been smiling on the outside, but I assure you I was more than frowning on the inside. Some things are funny; broccoli is not one of those things. Driving home amid the muf ed chuckles on the other side of the front seat, I thought of what the apostle Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (KJV), Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. I know that when Paul said, In every thing, it included things like broccoli. I must say that there are some things in life, like broccoli, where the thanksgiving is a matter of faith. I will never learn to love broccoli, but I can muster up enough faith to thank God for all things, including broccoli. Rev. James L.

Jack and I were already subscribers when our oldest son was maybe 8 or 9 years old about 1960, and the publisher sponsored a subscription promotion in which they offered a bicycle to the student who sold the most subscriptions. Renewals counted too and with our help, Hiram sold the most and was awarded the bicycle. The Holmes County Advertiser and The Chipley Banner as far as I can remember came to our home on Bonifay Route One, the Advertiser on Friday and the Banner on Thursday. Though there were no comics in the weeklies as there were in the daily paper, I enjoyed looking at the social page with pictures of brides and the description of their dresses, their weddings and their Newspaper big part of columnists historybicycle promotions social pages bring happy memoriesFull Story Page A4GARDEN CLUB INTERMEDIATE GARDENERS VISITS MIDDLE SCHOOL CLASS Bonifay Garden Club Intermediate Gardeners met on Wed, Nov. 7 at Bonifay Middle School with sponsor, Mrs. Dawn Barone, 6th grade science teacher. Hazel Tison, club member brought a demonstration on sack gardening. She demonstrated planting a potato garden in a large grocery bag. Each student was then given a small bag and planted their own garden. Several measurable skills were demonstrated, eye hand coordination, using a 12 inch ruler to measure soil depth, cell division, and following directions, just to name a few.

LAKE CITY First Federal Bank of Florida is proud to announce that the Holmes County High School Band received the most votes in the recent 50th Anniversary Donation Giveaway. In this contest, three local organizations were candidates to receive $500 from First Federal and the community voted on which organization will receive the donation. In honor of our 50th Anniversary, we wanted to reiterate our commitment to our community by asking the community to choose an organization that could benefit from additional funds this year, says Keith Leibfried, President and CEO. We also hope that our contribution can be an encouragement to other local businesses to donate money to any of these organizations. Voting began October 1st and ended on Oct. 13. During that time, the community voted once a day for their favorite organization. Advisory Councils in each county identified three organizations in their county that they felt could benefit the most from the donation. Each county in First Federals market area participated in the contest and the winners were announced on Oct. 15, on First Federals website. This year First Federal Bank of Florida celebrates 50 years of offering a comprehensive portfolio of products and services for personal and business customers.

W.D.WilliamsNewspaper celebrates 120th Anniversary BONIFAY The year was 1892, and W.D. Williams established the Holmes County Advertiser at old Cerro Gordo, which was then the county seat. According to an article published in the Advertiser on Oct. 8, 1921, and cited in the Heritage of Holmes County, Cerro Gordo was then the county seat. The Holmes County Advertiser was founded, owned and operated by four generations of the Williams family. The exact spot where the building stood in which the first edition was printed is marked by the channel of the Choctawhatchee River, and all that is left of old Cerro Gordo is the memory and the little wooden jail, which is now less than twenty feet of the rapidly caving banks of the river, soon to be washed in and leaving nothing save the giant oaks to mark the spot where once was enacted the stirring scenes of those pioneer days, the article stated. The first edition of the Advertiser carried the motto Labor is Honest and Pluck Wins, a motto that remained on the front page for decades. The motto was described as this pithy sentence as its guiding rule, and it is certainly appropriate to say that it has required both labor and pluck in generous quantities to bring thepaper through the strenuous years of its existence. The newspaper was burned out twice, with no insurance. It was Full Story Page B1 Serving Bonifay since 1986

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, November 28, 2012By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Associate Director of Membership Development for the Florida League of Cities Sharon Berrian was present of the behalf of the League to honor Bonifay City Council member Roger Brooks for his 30 years of elected service during the Bonifay City Councils regularly scheduled meeting on Monday. This is in honor of not only your dedication to Bonifay but to our state and to the cities throughout our state, Berrian said. This is in recognition of the fact that you have provided a lifetime of dedicated service to your citizens, and I want you to know I really feel honored to be here tonight to present this resolution to you on behalf of the Florida League of Cities. Berrian then read the resolution to the council and residents in attendance. Berrian said she was honored to be there and noted the Florida League of Cities would be honoring Brooks on their website, Facebook and Twitter as well as at their headquarters. Its never been about me, Brooks said. Its always about the people. Resident Ray Brooks came before the council with concerns about the streets of Bonifay. Brooks pointed out there are many roads with broken pavement and indentures because of water leaks. Mayor Lawrence Cloud explained that the city was aware of every issue he brought up and that these issues were because of their previous contractor and the city was getting in contact with the contractor to correct their mistakes. The only drawback would be if the contractor refused to correct the damage because the one-year warrantee is up. Whats to stop the same thing happening again during this project? Ray Brooks asked. Im concerned that the streets of Bonifay being worse off then when before the project began. Cloud assured the man the difference this time is that they increased their inspectors from one to three. Weve learned from our previous project and I know this time will be better, Cloud said. City Superintendent Jack Marell also informed Brooks it is mandatory that all inspectors update the city on a regular and timely basis. The council was informed that there still were two local businesses in volition of the grease trap ordinance and needed to be dealt with. The council approved of Council member Richard Woodhams suggestion of sending the business a letter, have the local agency pump their grease trap for them and add the bill to their water bill. That way if they dont pay then their services will be disconnected until they do, Woodham said. The council approved of paying Baxters Asphalt $1,131 for paving Varner Street. The council also approved of granting Jack Locke access to the easement already granted to Verizon to their cell phone tower. It wont change anything and the city wouldnt be liable for anything, City Attorney Lucas Taylor said. Its just giving them permission to use a path thats already being used and maintained by Verizon. Cloud announced they received a praise report from a local resident for the paving of McGee Road. Its rare for us to get a thank you, Cloud said. When we do get a thank you it is greatly appreciated.

Nicole P. Bare eld, Publisher Randal Seyler, Editor Cameron Everett, Production SupervisorHome delivery subscribers may be charged a higher rate for holiday editions. When the rst edition of the Holmes County Advertiser went to press on Aug. 11, 1892, my greatgrandfather, John Coleman Wells, and his wife, Lucinda Speigner Wells, had already settled in Holmes County. It was in the early 1880s that my ancestors moved to the area, bringing three small children with them, including my grandfather, James Thomas Wells, daughter Mary Elizabeth Wells and a second son, Jasper Green Wells. Their rst home was west of Bonifay on what was named Wells Hill, now Boswell Hill, with the road there so-named. Reportedly, my great-grandfather came here for employment providing cross ties for the P. and A. Railroad, which was being built through the area at the time. His date of death, Feb. 3, 1894, came when the Holmes County Advertiser was less than two years old. When my grandparents, James Thomas Wells and Hannah Malinda Wells, married on Sept. 18, 1894, they spent the rst year of the marriage in a log camp where he was engaged in cutting timber and cross ties, while Grandma became the cook for the logging crew. Their rst home was in Washington County, approximately six miles from Bonifay, where he purchased land and set up a farming operation where he remained throughout life. My father, Hugh Thomas Wells, was the last son born into that marriage, with two daughters following. My parents, Hugh and Marie Harris Wells, never moved from the only home they ever had, a property that is still in the family and is at the corner of Lee and Brackin Road. When your writer came into the world on August 24, 1927, as the second in the series of eight children of the above parents, the Holmes County Advertiser was a young 35-yearold newspaper. It began in Cerro Gordo, on the western shores of the Choctowhatchee River. Its rst editor was William Davis Williams, later known far and wide as Old W. D. The publication survived some hard times, including two res, missing a few issues of the paper and forced to cease operations for a while when the county seat of Holmes County moved to Bon ay from Westville. In 1907, the Advertiser again came to life at its new plant in Bonifay and soon regained its strength. The weekly paper continued with editors E. A. Williams and N. DeVane Williams, prior to passing it to other ownerships. Now it has reached the 120 anniversary as the Holmes County Times-Advertiser. The Prattler does not remember a time when the Holmes County Advertiser was not a regular xture in our home. Our grandfather, a rather frugal man, walked the half mile to our home when he knew the paper had arrived on Friday, its day of publication at the time. He relied heavily on Editor Williams in guiding his views and ultimately his vote, especially on state and national issues. Your writer recalls the mysterious masthead on the paper, Labor is Honest, and Pluck Wins, but doesnt recall ever having the courage to inquire as to what it meant. Now I know that The American Heritage Desk Dictionary gives one of the de nitions of the word as resourceful courage and daring in the face of dif culties. This statement leads your writer to the conclusion that the early editors coined their masthead phrase for the historic newspaper, which was to become a household necessity for readers in Holmes County and the surrounding area. Bonifay was the convenient place my parents chose to get married. It was on Sept. 12, 1925, that the two slipped into the courthouse and were married by County Judge J. R. Carswell, with the ceremony witnessed by Ira C. Bush and Mrs. Katie Yates, who happened to be in the courthouse at the time. My dad always said that he turned 20 years old on Sept. 9 and three days later went before a judge and swore that he was 21. In my upbringing, the statement from my parents of going to town was synonymous with going to Bonifay. It was in Bonifay where my father entered into an agreement with N. D. Miller Wholesale Company to furnish him baby chicks to be grown into layer hens with the eggs to be sold to the supplier. Bonifay was his rst peddling route for home grown vegetable and other farm products. Randall Roberts remembers Hugh Wells for the fresh purple top turnips greens that he uprooted, washed to a glowing cleanliness and delivered to Bonifay merchants just as they opened for business. Randall states those greens were on the table for the working men of the town at noon that very day. Our mothers only full brother, Edward Harris, was an early barber in the town of Bonfay. He reportedly was cutting hair at the Faro Lewis Barbershop at the age of 17 and continued his trade until his old age, while also serving as a Primitive Baptist Minister. He and our Aunt Lela, daddys oldest sister, were our connection with townsfolk early in life. Bonifay was the place where brothers, Jim and Perry Wells, along with Earl Barber, were treated to our rst picture show, provided by our teacher at Brackin School, Gertrude Farrell, as our reward for not missing a day of school during the rst semester. Later, it was our sad experience to observe that movie theater burn to the ground on a Saturday night as the town was lled with late shoppers. Christmas shopping also meant a trip into Bonifay for the Wells children. With our allotted quarter, or later 50 cents, we learned how to do some serious comparisons before parting with our money. It was in Pelts 5 and 10 cent store that our youthful brother, Clyde, asked the clerk, Lettie Clark, if she had change for 50 cents that he planned to use in his rst purchase of a Big-Little Book, the forerunner of all comic books and priced at a nickel. In adulthood, the country folk became more acquainted and integrated with townspeople. Your writer met and married Esto girl, Hester Lucas, who graduated from Holmes County High School in 1945. Jack Tison, a 1943 graduate from the same school, married my sister in 1949. Other Holmes County folk met at my University of Florida days include Shouppe Howell (later Superintendent of Schools), Howard Strickland (served later as Tax Assessor), Clifford McGriff, Paul Belser and many others not listed here. Congratulations to the present day Holmes County Times-Advertiser who has brought the paper to the 120th year of providing news to the citizens of the area. With their commitment to continue to bring the news in an accurate and speedy manner, subscribers to the local paper can look forward to many more years of service form their hometown newspaper. See you all next week. BONIFAY Cecilia asked me to write something commemorating the birthday of the Advertiser which was a part of my family all my life. Jack and I were already subscribers when our oldest son was maybe 8 or 9 years old (about 1960), and the publisher sponsored a subscription promotion in which they offered a bicycle to the student who sold the most subscriptions. Renewals counted too and with our help, Hiram sold the most and was awarded the bicycle. The Holmes County Advertiser and The Chipley Banner as far as I can remember came to our home on Bonifay Route One, the Advertiser on Friday and the Banner on Thursday. Though there were no comics in the weeklies as there were in the daily paper, I enjoyed looking at the social page with pictures of brides and the description of their dresses, their weddings and their parties. My dad, if he was home when the mail came, would read portions aloud, which annoyed my mother as she preferred to read it for herself when she had a few minutes to take a breather from the chore of cooking and serving a meal. Grandpa Wells walked up the hill to our house to read the Advertiser. Later, in high school, I liked to read the review of the local sports. I remember reading the account of my alma mater, Vernons basketball game. They called us a scrappy team. I asked the coach why they used such a derogatory term. He explained that they meant the team was willing to ght to win. Spirited, not made up of bits and pieces as I thought of scraps. To prepare for this article, I went and perused some 1948 copies of the Holmes County Advertiser. There were only 3 grocery stores that were advertised: Manuel Grocery and Market and J .S. Hasty, both in north Bonifay, and Pick and Pay Supermarket, which advertised large cans of tomatoes for 13 cents and cooking oil for $2.99 per gallon. I know there were other grocery stores in town. Just south of the pool hall were Methvins and O.K. Williams, which became O.J. Carnleys. Only three businesses operating today with the same name were found: Padgett Drugs, Miller and Jerkins (Jerkins Inc.) and Miller Service Station, which advertised seed oats and seed potatoes. Bonifay boasted at least three clothing stores: Evans, Schienbergs and R. E. Barkers Cash Store. Peacocks Dry Cleaners, L.& K Restaurant, Kings Radio Service, A. B. Dykes, watchmaker and jeweler R. L. Dowling, Rich Feed and Seed and Johnsons Furniture store all were advertised. C. Thomas advised, Dont throw those shoes away. Have them repaired at Thomas Shoe Shop. In the classi eds a seven-foot kerosene refrigerator was advertised. Bonifay had a theater in 1948 and advertised the movie, I Wonder Whos Kissing Her Now. On the front page was a news story about the upcoming movie, The Best Years of Our Lives, the rst three hour movie since Gone With The Wind. The Personal Mention column reported on local business and social happenings in and around the town. The outlying areas had their own columns. I have mentioned before that Mrs. Nix Nelson wrote the Bonifay Route One News. There were also reports from Live Oak, Open Pond, Otter Creek, Isagora and others, I am sure. They all told church happenings, who had the u, who visited within the community, who ate Sunday dinner with whom, who went on a business trip to Bonifay or Dothan. A regular school section was in each issue. Sonny Lutz wrote several articles for the high school section. Four-H news reported Mike Carroll of RT. 2 entered the district poultry show at Chipley and received $5.75 prize money for his best of show entry. Lavell Pennington won 3rd place on her egg exhibit and Ernie Halls exhibit of Japanese Silkies attracted a lot of attention in his division. In other farm news, it was announced the Carl Colombi was preparing for a large demand for sweet potato draws. The Farmers Market was buying all kinds of greens, broccoli, collards cabbage, carrots, cauli ower, long green cucumbers, parsley, parsnips, spinach, sweet corn and turnip tops. The Bank of Bonifay listed its cash balance, balances with other banks, reserve balance and cash items in process of collection as $902,280.67 signed by E. J. Folmer, cashier, J.W. Van Landingham, H.B. Douglas and A. P. Drummond. Several items of news: Edward A. Williams Jr. was among the 300 to graduate from The University of Florida with a Bachelor of Arts in education. Shouppe Howell made the deans list at U of F Miss Edna Jean Brock, Bonifay Route 1 was home from Florida State College for Women visiting her family. Judge B. Helms announced his candidacy for Clerk of Courts. In fact there were several political announcements. Lonnie Hagan, pool hall operator, was running for constable as was Gus Urquhart, taxi driver. On the same page the current constable was charged along with 3 others with breaking and entering, public drunkenness and reckless driving. Sounds like it was time for a change. The Holmes County Times Advertiser has been an integral part of the history and development of Holmes County. It has always been based on sound journalistic practices. It has always supported community endeavors. It has always upheld strong moral and family values. It has been the glue that has held our community together. May it ever be so.Wednesday, November 28, 2012Prattlers history of the Holmes County AdvertiserCelebrating the Holmes County Advertisers 120th birthdayHAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Criminal Defense Social Security DisabilityAppleman & Trucks, P.A.422 West Beach Drive, Panama City, FL 32401Call (850) 230-5550 or Visit Us Online at applemanlaw.comAttorneys Jim Appleman J.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, November 28, 2012 Special to The Times-AdvertiserBONIFAY Sixty Japanese women educators recently became part of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, a professional honor society for women educators with more than 90,000 members. Established in 18 countries around the world, Japan represents the rst Asian nation in the organization. More than 45 local women belong to Delta Theta Chapter of the society. Elizabeth Bell from Marianna is the chapter president. Delta Theta member Dr. Beverly Helms, international president, ew to Japan to of ciate in the founding of the Japan state organization and initiation of members. The founding of the Japanese arm of the organization took place Oct. 14 in Kochi-Shi, Japan, on the island of Shikoku. Kochi Prefecture Gov. Masano Ozaki and Mayor Seiya Okazaki were present to applaud the 60 women educators being initiated and installed into the society. The governor presented a gift to Helms as the of cial representative of the organization. Opening our organization to Asia adds a new aspect of cultural experience and educational understanding for our members, Helms said. I was honored to serve as the international president. This expansion of our society into Japan will help to solidify the bonds of women educators worldwide. We can create many opportunities for collaborative problem-solving, cultural sharing and the development of friendships across borders. As leading women educators, impacting education worldwide, DKG is honored to accept Japan into our organization. Wearing a kimono, sharing in a formal tea service and trying the local food were also very interesting. This initiation/installation ceremony came at the heels of the New York International Convention, where the International Executive Board approved the expansion of the society into Japan. Seven Kochi women educators attended the convention of about 2,000 members with sponsors from Hawaii. The society de nes its mission as promoting professional and personal growth of women educators and excellence in education. Regional conferences for members will be in July and August 2013 in ve locations. Japan will join its sponsoring organization Hawaii in the Southwest Region, which will meet in Branson, Mo.; Southeast Region will meet in Orlando; Northeast Region in Portland, Ore.; Northwest Region in Cheyenne, Wyo.; and Europe Region in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The honor organization of key women educators was formed in Austin, Texas, on May 11, 1929, by Dr. Annie Webb Blanton from a nucleus of 12 founders representing all levels of education, kindergarten through university. Professor of rural education at the University of Texas, Blanton was elected president of the Texas State Teachers Association in 1916, the rst woman to hold that ofce. She was also the rst woman to serve Texas as State Superintendent of Public Instruction, having been elected in 1918. Society Headquarters is near the capitol in downtown Austin.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, November 28, 2012 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Special to Halifax MediaLegendary Marine, with sales and service locations in Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City and Gulf Shores, Ala., was named Dealer of the Year by Boating Industry Magazine as part of its annual TOP 100 awards program held in Orlando on Nov. 14. The Dealer of the Year award is the most prestigious and most highly coveted recognition in North America for marine retailers and is presented annually to only one dealer at an exclusive gathering of the marine industry elite. It was with great pleasure that we have chosen Legendary Marine as our 2012 Boating Industry Top 100 Dealer of the Year, said Boating Industry magazine Editor Jonathan Sweet. Simply making the Top 100 list is an honor as only the best of the best make this elite list, chosen from thousands of dealers across North America. To be chosen as Dealer of the Year is especially impressive. We were so impressed by Legendary Marines rapid growth, strong nancials and heavy investments in marketing, education and service. Legendary Marine Managing Partner Fred Pace, his wife, Leslie, and the dealerships senior leadership team accepted the award at the gala ceremony of more than 1000. We are thrilled and honored by this distinction and credit our entire team for the achievement, Pace said. It has been a challenging few years for dealers across the country, so we especially appreciate the recognition as our team has worked hard to not only survive, but to thrive. Our team is very pleased and humbled by this recognition. It has been a year of outstanding recognition for Legendary Marine. In addition to this extraordinary honor, Legendary Marine won the No. 1 Dealer Nationwide for Sales from Sea Hunt Boats, Columbia, S.C., and the No. 1 Dealer Nationwide for Everglades boats based in Edgewater.

This is the 10th consecutive win in this category, along with similar titles for both Destin Magazine and the Finest of the Emerald Coast by readers of Northwest Florida Daily News.Legendary Marine wins prestigious dealership awardSPECIAL TO THE NEWS/TIMES ADVERTISERWe just won the Super Bowl or World Series of boat dealers, said Legendary Marines Wanda Kenton. Fishin tradition After watching folks for 31 days straight in October bring in their catches during the Destin Fishing Rodeo, when November rolls around the angler in me is ready to reel in a few of her own. Earlier this week, my brother Jerry and I headed toward Apalachicola in search of Mr. Trout, just like we have for the past 30 years give or take a few years. We launched his 17-foot ats boat at Bay City Lodge and headed down the St. Marks River. It didnt take long to nd Mr. Trout at home. The rst trout to answer the door wasnt quite as big as I had hoped, but the big ones came later. Using a 6 feet long rod and Shimano spinning reel loaded with 15-pound test Power Pro Braid and a blue and chartreuse Bass Assassin Sea Shad with a ounce jig head, it didnt take long to get a hook up. On the rst stop and about the second cast, it was sh on. Jerry was still getting the trolling motor set and I was already in business. It wasnt quite big enough, but it made for a hopeful day. It wasnt long after Jerry had a sh on, but again it was about an inch to short. The bag limit for speckled trout is ve per day and it has to fall in the 15-20 inch slot. Included in that ve per day, anglers can take one bigger than 20 inches. Although the rst few sh were not in the slot, theres nothing like the tug on the line to get the adrenaline pumping. Bouncing the grub off the bottom, I nally pulled in a keeper that measured 18 inches. At that point, Jerry and I decided we were in the right spot and we worked it hard. We managed to reel in two or three that werent even in question as to whether they fell into the slot limit if you catch my drift. Besides just being in one of the most serine areas around, I love all the shermen you run into on the river you never meet a stranger. Conversation often goes like this. Doin any good? Weve caught a few. Any size to em? Weve got a few 18-inchers. How about yall? Were doin OK. Weve got a few. Sure this all sounds good, but you never know with shermen if they are stretching the truth or holding out on you because they dont want to give away any secrets for fear you may get their honey hole. But one thing is for sure they are always friendly. Even the folks we passed on the back roads driving down to Bay City Lodge were friendly. I dont think we passed a vehicle where the driver didnt throw up a hand and wave. You just dont see that much anymore. Anyhow, back to shing. We did quite well on Monday and went back for more the next day. We tried some different spots on Tuesday. Jerry changed out his color of grub he went to one called candy corn. If you were to see it you would know how it got its name the coloring of the grub looks just like the candy that the kids get on Halloween. Fishing was good down on the grass ats, if you like catching the small ones. After an hour or so of reeling in those 14-inchers, we headed back to the area we were Monday. Id tell where that was, but if I did my brother would kill me. Ive already given up more than he would like. Jerry was the winner on Tuesday with the biggest trout coming in at 21 inches I guess kids are not the only ones that like candy corn.

Harold Armstrong rushed for two touchdowns and Liberty County held Blountstowns offense in check for a 14-7 win in the Region 2-1A championship. Liberty County, winners of nine in a row, advanced to host the winner of Bratt Northview, which defeated Freeport 35-28 in overtime, in next weeks state semifinal. Blountstown finished the season 7-5. Its the Bulldogs deepest postseason run and first semifinal appearance in Granthams seven seasons at the school. Grantham sported the shorts he started wearing after a 1-2 start. Well retire them after two more wins, Grantham said. The long-standing rivalry saw the first postseason matchup between the schools seperated by a bridge and a few right turns. It was a rematch of a regular-season game won by Liberty County that helped the Bulldogs (10-2) secure control of District 4-1A. That game featured two big passing plays to give Liberty County a 14-0 halftime lead. The Bulldogs led again at half, this time 7-0 when Armstrong capped a 17-play drive with a 1-yard run early in the second quarter. The drive encompassed 80 yards and the Bulldogs also were forced to punt, fumbled and ended their third possession as the half expired. Both defenses stood tall in the first 24 minutes, the teams combining for just 183 yards. Blountstown had 78 of those yards and squandered an early chance for points. Liberty County forced a three-and-out on the games first drive, but the ball touched a Bulldog returner and Blountstown took over at the 25. The drive ended when Andrew Bennets 24-yard field goal was wide right. Blountstowns second possession was stunted with a Alex Marlowe interception in the end zone and the Tigers also punted twice. We had it down there and missed an oportunity and in the playoffs you cant do that, Blountstown coach Greg Jordan said. Theres no doubt you need to get points there. Grantham credited his defense, which held Blountstown to 79 yards rushing, with making the critical early stand. The offense went on to 14 unanswered points, adding a 9-yard Armstrong scoring run in the third. Blountstown finally cracked the scoreboard on Alex Mayorgas 7-yard reception from Hunter Jordan with 26 seconds left in the game. Jordan, who was 7 of 20 for 128 yards, didnt get a chance to tie the game, as Liberty County recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock with a kneel down. We didnt play our best, made some mistakes, but thats a credit to them, coach Jordan said. Liberty County also wasnt explosive on offense, but the Bulldogs did enough against a Tigers defense that had shut out three of their four previous opponents. Marlowe led all rushers with 55 yards, while Armstrong added 38. Grantham and the Bulldogs will look to extend their streak to 10 at home next week. I always say I dont mind going on the road, Grantham said. But it will be nice to play here and this team has played well at home all year.

Washington, Holmes at a glance BSectionBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY One-hundred twenty years ago, the rst Holmes County Times-Advertiser went to print on its very own printing press located at the very same location it is today on Virginia Avenue in Bonifay. I remember the caption that was across every edition of the paper, said local resident and Kiwanis Club President Carlton Treadwell. It read, Labor is Honest and Pluck Wins, and we used to send a copy to a relative in the southern Paci c, and his buddies would ask what it meant, if anything. Pluck means persistence, durability and a drive to nish what youve started. Treadwell said the paper was important to the Holmes County community. It was very important, Treadwell said. It was the main source of news for the county. You had the paper, and then you had gossip, but that was it. The lifeline during those days was the carriers, Treadwell said. Most of the people lived in rural areas, and the newspapers were delivered by rural carriers, he said. Most of the time, those in the rural areas would get their Wednesday paper by Friday and was served through Black, Ala., Route 1. Carriers were very nice and used to buy things from the store if you needed them, so they were just the means of getting the paper. The biggest population at that time was in Bethlehem, Treadwell said. Bethlehem had the biggest school at the time, he said. That was back when farming wasnt all that expensive and was pro table. He said in those days, the residents of Holmes County were self-suf cient. They survived on cane syrup, eggs, pork, corn, ground their own meal, grew their own food, got milk from cows, made their own butter, Treadwell said. People lived on ham, eggs and bacon, but that was it. There were no televisions and hardly any radios, and thats why the newspaper was so important for getting the news. He said he remembered the paper had its own printing press, complete with workers having to melt their own lead to reform the letters for printing. He also remembers former editor Ed Williams. He was a long, tall and thin man who smoked cigars and always had an awful lot of work to be done, Treadwell said. He was always in a running t to get it in the mail and out on time, but he had help from his boys. As far back as Treadwell could remember, Ed Williams was the editor. Ed Williams was an old man in 1940, and being the editor of the paper was all hed ever done, Treadwell said, trying to contemplate if Williams was the rst editor of the Holmes County Times-Advertiser. Williams sons were DeVane and Edward Williams II. Edward Williams II became postmaster, but by then the paper was owned by someone else, and DeVane Williams was editor until the day he died. After Nolan DeVane Williams died, Orren Smith, who married Williams daughter Dianne, became the publisher, Treadwell said. He was publisher of the paper for the longest time, he said. Smith, great-granddaughter of the original owner, Edward A. Williams, said four generations of her family owned and edited the paper for almost a century, from the time it was established in 1892 till the paper was sold to the Woodhams in 1981. When I was in my pre-teens and early teens, I would come in on Saturday mornings and afternoons and fold the Baptist Churchs announcements for $1, she said. Back then, that was enough to go to the movies and pay for candy and popcorn. She remembered when things broke on the press that her grandfather and father could x it, but it would be a stress to get the papers out. They would take all of the sheets and go down to the house, which was where the A-Plus Pharmacy is now, and they would lay it out on a big table, Smith said. Then the women of the family would fold all the papers to get them ready to go out. The whole family would pitch in those days. She said she and her husband had left but would nd themselves back home and back in the newspaper business. I never knew my great-grandfather, E.A. Williams, who was actually editor and publisher longer then anyone, Smith said. When he retired, my father became publisher and editor, and when he became ill, my husband and I bought the paper from him. My husband was the one really in charge, she said. I helped with writing weddings. I wrote about the wedding dress, the reception, and (there) was usually a nice write-up about their wedding in general. Her mother, Smith said, wrote about the local weddings, and then she followed suit. Weddings and obituaries were always very important to the community, she said. Obituaries were always important, and if the person was known by the editor or well known in the community, the editor would say a few words about them. Obituaries were always owery, praising the persons life, but eventually that changed to be more matter of fact and straight to the point. These events fell under the category of social news. There was a woman by the name of Lilie Harrell, and she was one of the social editors, writing columns about visitors and weddings, Smith said. Thats something the papers dont do anymore.

Williams established the Holmes County Advertiser at old Cerro Gordo, which was then the county seat. According to an article published in the Advertiser on Oct. 8, 1921, and cited in the Heritage of Holmes County, Cerro Gordo was then the county seat. The Holmes County Advertiser was founded, owned and operated by four generations of the Williams family. The exact spot where the building stood in which the rst edition was printed is marked by the channel of the Choctawhatchee River, and all that is left of old Cerro Gordo is the memory and the little wooden jail, which is now less than twenty feet of the rapidly caving banks of the river, soon to be washed in and leaving nothing save the giant oaks to mark the spot where once was enacted the stirring scenes of those pioneer days, the article stated. The rst edition of the Advertiser carried the motto Labor is Honest and Pluck Wins, a motto that remained on the front page for decades. The motto was described as this pithy sentence as its guiding rule, and it is certainly appropriate to say that it has required both labor and pluck in generous quantities to bring the paper through the strenuous years of its existence. The newspaper was burned out twice, with no insurance. It was forced to temporarily suspend publication twice, was published in Cerro Gordo, Westville and Bonifay, and had been printed in a dozen or more towns and cities all in the rst 29 years of the newspapers existence. W.D. Williams served as editor except for the year 1908, when W.D. Brett Jr. took control of the newspaper. However, the Williams family resumed control in 1909, when Edward Arthur Williams Sr. became editor and publisher. Edward Williams guided the newspaper and provided leadership to the county through some of the nations most trying times World War I, the Great Depression and World War II. Because of his long tenure at the helm of the newspaper, he, more than anyone else, molded the philosophy and tradition of a family-owned publication that became a Holmes County institution, according to the Heritage of Holmes County. Edward was the youngest son of founder W.D. Williams, and he began learning the newspaper business at an early age. By the time he was 15, he already had assumed a leading role in the papers publication. Before taking over from his father in 1909, Edward worked brie y for the Carrabelle Advertiser. He also worked brie y for the Marianna Times, only to return to Holmes County when his father called him back to take over after the county seat was moved from Westville to Bonifay and the newspaper also moved to Bonifay. In a 1929 editorial celebrating the 36th anniversary of the Holmes County Advertiser, Edward wrote: That old epigram, It takes a lot of living to make a house a home, is familiar to all. Perhaps few have thought to apply it to a newspaper, however. It takes a lot of living to make a publication a home newspaper. The publication must participate in the joys and sorrows, the problems and perplexities, as well as the triumphs and successes, of a people for a long time before it becomes a real integral part of their home life. It must struggle for them, sacri ce for them, suffer for them before it becomes one of them. This is what the Advertiser has aimed to do. In 1949, Nolan DeVane Williams took his fathers place as editor and publisher and ran the newspaper until its sale in 1981 to Larry and Merle Woodham, newspaper publishers in DeFuniak Springs and Florala, Ala. The Holmes County Advertiser remained within the Williams family for 99 years. The Woodhams took possession of the Advertiser in 1981 from Williams relatives, Orren and Dianne Williams Smith. Woodham was the fourth generation in a family of newspaper publishers. His two great-uncles started in the newspaper business in 1917, followed by his grandfather, then his father and mother, according to an article published in the Wednesday, March 11, 1992, issue of the Advertiser. The Woodhams were natives of Alabama and owned four other newspapers The DeFuniak Springs Herald-Breeze, The BeachBreeze in South Walton County, The Beach Bay News in Panama City and The Florala News. In 2003, the Woodhams sold the Holmes County Advertiser and the Washington County Post to Chipley Newspapers Inc. According to CNI President Maurice Pujol, CNI published the Washington County News and the Holmes County Times, along with the Weekly Advertiser, a free shoppers guide that was distributed in both counties. The merger of the Times and the Advertiser was historic, Pujol said, in that it represents the combination of over two great centuries of newspaper publishing in Washington and Holmes counties. Pujol founded the Holmes County Times in 1989. The late Jack Davis, retired educator and coach, served as the Times rst managing editor until his death in 1992. Davis was a retired principal, coach and teacher and one of the founders of the Northwest Florida INDEXSociety .................................B3 Faith ....................................B4 Obituaries ............................B5 Classi eds ............................B7Wednesday, NOVEMBER 28 2012 THE HOLMES COUNTY TIMES-ADVERTISER: 120 YEARS OF MEMORIESHolmes County Times-AdvertiserPAGE 1 E.A.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 Football Conference. He not only served as managing editor of the Holmes County Times, but he was known as an exciting radio color commentator for HCHS football games. He was one of the fairest newspaper reporters Ive ever known, Holmes County Clerk of Circuit Court Cody Taylor said in 1992. He was cordial, objective and he never tried to embarrass anyone, yet his work was always in-depth and thorough. Upon his death in 1992 in an automobile accident, the Times began the tradition of awarding Jack Davis Memorial Award to the outstanding boy and girl athletes of Holmes County each year, a tradition that still continues. According to Pujol, the Times continued to gain popularity with readers and advertisers throughout the 1990s. It became the countys rst full-color newspaper as the decade ended and a new millennium dawned. Pujol came to the News in 1974 after a stint as a reporter for the Panama City News-Herald and was named publisher in 1979. CNI was established in 1983. We see this merger as an opportunity not only for our business, but also for all the communities which we serve throughout the two counties, Pujol said in 2003. We take seriously our responsibility to serve as a voice of the people, an example of professional journalism and a force for community service and development. Cameron Everett, a Holmes County native, was on hand for the transition to CNI in 2003, and he still works for the newspaper today as production supervisor. Cameron even worked part-time for the News while he was still attending Holmes County High School and also helped out at the Advertiser under Orren Smith at the time, Pujol said. In January 2007, Freedom Communications purchased the Washington County News and the Holmes County TimesAdvertiser, along with the Crestview News Bulletin in Crestview and the Santa Rosa Press Gazette in Milton. Nicole Bare eld became the publisher of the Holmes and Washington County newspapers. When I came to the Times-Advertiser in 2007, I was surprised to learn how distinct and close-knit the county communities were, and how everyone had a story to tell, Bare eld said. Its been a privilege these last ve years to help tell the stories through the newspaper and share the proud heritage of Holmes County and its people. In June of this year, Halifax Media took ownership of the Holmes County TimesAdvertiser and the Washington County News when the company purchased the Panama City News Herald and the rest of Freedoms Newspapers in Florida and North Carolina. Other Florida newspapers involved in the transaction were The Star in Port St. Joe, The Walton Sun in Santa Rosa Beach, The Crestview News Bulletin, The Destin Log, the Northwest Florida Daily News in Fort Walton Beach, and The Santa Rosa Press Gazette and the Santa Rosa Free Press in Milton. At Halifax Media Group, we believe in the future of newspapers, said Michael Redding, CEO of Halifax Media Group. The purchase of Freedoms Florida and North Carolina properties further demonstrates our commitment to newspapers, not only for their value as an investment, but for the value they provide to the communities they serve. These properties provide a perfect extension to our recently acquired New York Times Regional Newspaper Group papers and re ect our interest in preserving community journalism for many years to come.

Congratulations to our $100 winner!chipleypaper.com bonifaynow.com Jessica Davidson, Chipley people call in and say I had company over last week, you know, and wed write it up and have it in the paper that week. Another woman she said she remembered covering social news was Ann Brown. This was something she wanted to do after her husband, Clyde Brown, died, Smith said. She was really good at getting the social news. She knew a lot of people. Smith said the trend of putting in the social news continued until the Smiths eventually sold the paper. Smith remembered several people who worked at the paper during her and her husbands tenure. Mr. Savage and his son, Jimmy, used to work there for a long time, she said. Both very good at working with the press and setting type. Another set of people she remembered were Wayne Marsh and his wife, Nancy. She said Edward Williams II and Tom Douglass both worked at the paper until they were old enough to leave home. Both Williams II and Douglass joined the military, one in the Navy and one in the Army. Williams II went on to become postmaster in Bonifay after graduating from the University of Florida, and Douglass attended Florida State University and then went on to work with various newspapers, Smith said. Edward started printing and publishing The Gator Post, a paper for the Post Masters Association. All of the printing was done here. We were living in South Carolina, and my husband, Orren Smith, was working for IBM when my father got sick, she said. We bought the paper from my father, and Orren began working with no newspaper experience. He thought he could learn it, so my daddy taught him what he needed to know, and Orren ended up doing a wonderful job. Orren did a column called Now Hear This, which was the personal opinions of the editor and what Smith said was an answer to her fathers own column. They would sometimes write about things that were controversial, she said. My husband would do that more often then my father had. My dad didnt say much that was controversial, but my husband did and would always get a big response. Smith and her husband would run the paper for 17 years. All of our generations that ran the paper were concerned with covering the whole county as much as possible, she said. We had correspondents all over the county. The correspondents would have their own section for county updates that ran with the correspondents picture. This is something that was important to my grandfather, she said. He loved Holmes County. He wouldnt call it Holmes County, hed call it Good Ol Holmes. In 1981, the Smiths decided to sell the paper to a family of newspaper owners, the Woodhams. It was so stressful to get the paper out, and Orren got to wondering if anything should happen to him, who would take care of the paper? Smith said. The Woodhams seemed like a good family of newspaper owners, and we wouldnt have sold it to just anybody. After they sold the paper, both Dianne and Orren went back to school, Orren went to FSU to become an attorney, and Dianne went to become an English teacher. After college, they both went into their prospective elds. Orren got a private practice then went on to work with the states attorney, Jim Appleman, as a prosecutor and then decided he wanted to go to the opposite spectrum and become a public defender, Smith said. He did that until we both retired in 2000. We then enjoyed traveling until his health declined, and now hes in the Bonifay Nursing Home. She said her memories keep going back to the time of the paper. The whole family, including the extended family, we all felt a sense of pride in the Holmes County Times for those years, she said. I remember when it was $1 for a subscription to the paper, and if someone couldnt pay but really wanted it wed then accept payments of things like a mess of turnips, cane syrup, eggs and the like. There were shelves of stuff like that just waiting for granddaddy to pick up and take home. She said the newspaper was very important to the community. This was back before there were radios and television, so there was no other way to for the community to get their news, she said. We had some national news, but it mostly stayed local. We still have parents dying. and when the children go to clean out their belongings theyd nd stacks of old Holmes County Times piled up and saved in a trunk somewhere. Smith said her great-grandfather was known as a Yellow Dog Democrat. He used the paper as the voice of the Democratic Party, and he was very vocal, she said. Grandfather wasnt as vocal, but then just about everyone was a Democrat. There were very few registered Republicans; you could probably count them all on two hands, she said. It changed from being a Democratic paper shortly before my father sold it. Smith and her husband never used it for the Democratic Party, she said. Virtually it was something that everyone looked forward to, she said. It was an important part of their lives. We felt a real kinship and love for the people of Holmes County. She said they wanted a paper people could be proud of. I can still get very nostalgic and a little emotional when thinking of the paper, she said. It was a very dif cult decision to sell something with that much history. He (Orren) had made it nancially stable, and it was the best decision for his family and his newspaper. Stephanie Smith, daughter of Dianne Smith, said she had many fond memories of the Holmes County Times-Advertiser growing up. From ages about 11 to 14, I worked at the paper on Wednesday afternoons, Stephanie Smith said. This was the day when the paper was ready to be mailed to out-of-town subscribers. She said some of her duties including folding each newspaper in half and stuf ng them into brown paper bags, which were sorted by ZIP codes. Needless to say, this job got fairly boring to a young kid after about 100 had been stuffed, she said. I would then entertain myself by looking at the subscriber labels to see if I knew anyone. I distinctly remember one effort to relieve my boredom by drawing a big smiley face on the bag going to my aunt in Atlanta along with a Hello from Florida note. She said her father, however, didnt nd this as amusing. My father, who was a big stickler for rules, was not pleased at my freelance greeting and gave me a long, stern lecture on how I was breaking federal law by writing on U.S. mail, she said. The $3.25 I received for my child labor efforts were not enough to keep me interested in being a full-time bag stuffer, so employer and employee (father and daughter) decided to part work ways for the sake of peace at home. Other strong memories she said of coming from a newspaper family included: The smell of newspaper ink at the Advertiser of ce and on her father when he came home from work Always feeling that she knew what was going on in her town after reading the paper front to back every week Developing an early interest in local politics because of the paper and her parents involvement Only being able to take family vacations from Thursday to Saturday because of the paper schedule and having to be back in town in time for church on Sunday Classmates always being worried about telling her any news or gossip for fear it might end up in the paper Her dad being at most every sporting event in town Holmes County towns sporting events got coverage in the hometown paper as well, she said. I also remember my father taking quite a hit on the sidelines from an errant HCHS football player who ran out of bounds. (Took that hit like a champ and popped back up ready to take more photos!) Stephanie Smith said her family is proud to have owned and run this hometown business for more than 90 years. I feel my father always did his best to report the news in a fair manner with no personal bias, she said. His editorial column, Now Hear This, on the other hand, could be full of personal bias. and I read those weekly columns nervously hoping it would be on something non-family related i.e. not embarrassing for a young, easily embarrassed daughter. I didnt always get my wish, but any embarrassment suffered then has now been forgotten and replaced by pride in knowing that my family kept Holmes County informed for many years. 120 YEARS from page B1 ExtraB2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser HISTORY from page B1 LARRY AND MERLE WOODHAM JACK DAVIS W.D.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 Extra By RAY REYNOLDSSpecial to the Times-Advertiser The Advertiser arrived in todays mail. Twenty-ve years out of Esto and 3,000 miles away in California, Im still always happy to get the weekly newspaper from home. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Aging breeds nostalgia. And now I better understand the complaints from people who had moved away I used to hear when I worked at the Advertiser as a teenager. I never know anybody you write about anymore. I have to gure out who their mamas are to place them or their grandmamas. And then: The only names I know are in the obituaries. On the editorial page of this weeks issue (Aug. 21, 1996) I get to E.W. Carswells column. This week its titled The Smells of Summer, and it takes me immediately back home. He writes, The smell of summer is a reminder of the good things summer has made possible mellowing pears, magnolia blossoms, fresh turpentine, overripe muscadines, fresh-sliced tomatoes, new-crop Southern peas or speckled butterbeans being cooked with slices of ham. Summer is the smell of the old chinaberry tree after its waxy fruit had started dropping to the ground. It is the smell of fresh-sliced watermelon or cantaloupe. Unforgettable is the smell of peanut hay, curing in the sunshine. And freshly dug peanuts being boiled outdoors in a wood-fueled pot. I had read this column before. In fact, Judge and I included it in Commotion in the Magnolia Tree, the rst collection of his columns we published in 1981. Maybe I even read it when it was rst published in his regular column on the editorial page of The Pensacola Journal back in the 70s. I might have read it again since the Advertiser started reprinting some of his columns a few years ago. But it didnt matter. Like the smells of summer he was describing, Judge Carswells writing has a timeless quality about it. It has the feeling of home his home, and my home too. This week I recognize something familiar in the Advertiser. I recognize the smells of home. Reynolds is a former editor of the Esto Herald, the Holmes County Advertiser and the San Francisco Daily Journal. Now he turns rst every week to Hazel Tisons Happy Corner. Gretel is a 2to 3-year-old golden-colored Shepherd cross, about 40 to 45 pounds. She is scared at the shelter but was very good on a leash and was much more at ease and friendly once we went outside. She is a beautiful girl but looks like she has been going hungry for a while. She would be so happy and would love you forever if she could only have a home where she was loved, not to mention getting meals on a regular basis! Can you help this sweet girls dream come true? Geoffrey is a 1-year-old male long haired doxie cross, about 20 pounds. He is very cute, sweet and calm. He is a real lover boy, enjoys hugs and petting but not demanding of attention like some young dogs can be. He acts very mature for his age and would be a great pet for someone who wants a small dog to snuggle with. Animal Control of West Florida is at 686 U.S. 90 in Chipley.

Club member Hazel Tison brought a demonstration on sack gardening. She demonstrated planting a potato garden in a large grocery bag, and each student was given a small bag and planted his or her own garden. Several measurable skills were demonstrated: eye-hand coordination, using a 12-inch ruler to measure soil depth, cell division and following directions, just to name a few. Some of the students carried their gardens home in a plastic bag, while others left theirs at school. The sixth-graders asked several relevant questions such as how much to water the plants, where will the potato form and how do you know when to dig them since they are underground. When they produce, Barone will demonstrate how to cook them, and the students will have a potato tasting. On Dec. 12, the same demonstration with the second group of sixth-graders will be conducted by a Bonifay Garden Club member. Contact Sandra Devine (535-2294), DiAnn Shores (768-2766) or Hazel Tison (547-4696) if you would like to be involved in these activities.

We, the congregation of The First United Methodist Church of Chipley, are so glad to invite you to view our historic sanctuary as we have decorated it to the honor of our Lord, Jesus Christ. The service begins at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2. Everyone is welcome to come and worship with us. The First United Methodist Church of Chipley, 1285 Jackson Ave., Chipley. Each year on the rst evening of Advent, we decorate our church for the season. To showcase the beauty of our sanctuary, it is decorated in greenery that accents our 20-foot Chrismon Tree. The Lighting of the Crismon Tree is the highlight of the evening. A chrismon is a Christian symbol representing Jesus Christ. Since early Christianity, the term chrismon has traditionally referred to any symbol or gure reminiscent of the name of Christ, consisting of plain letters typically implying the presence of some kind of calligraphic ornamentation. The Chrismon decorations are always pure white or gold with clear white lights. After the service, we are hosting a Soup and Crackers supper for all who attend. Come join us as we begin our Celebration of the coming of Christ. We are located at the top of the hill, next to the Washington County Courthouse.

Snyder, D.LittLet me make it very clear right up front that I am in favor of as many ha ha moments as possible. I could not get through a week without my daily dose. I rmly believe that laughter is the appropriate medicine for the soul. Some people, according to their demeanor, need a little more laughter than they are presently getting. That said, let me quickly point out that some things are not funny. Of course, most things in my life and about my person are marvelous targets of humor. I do not take myself very seriously. I am not sure any wise person would take me seriously either. In fact, I would highly suspect a person who took me seriously. I can take a joke as well as the next person, and I can give it back as well as the next person. I have had some weeks that if it was not for a little bit of humor I do not know how I would have gotten through. So, if you cant do anything you can at least laugh. I rmly believe that the best laugh is when you can laugh at yourself. You might as well laugh at yourself; everybody else is. Then, there are those serious moments in life that beg for no laughing. I would recommend warning signs be put around these areas reading, Positively No Laughing Zone. With this sign should come a severe penalty for those who violate it. That said; let me explain an area in my life where the sign should be permanently erected. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were having supper with another couple. We try to do this at least once a month and keep up with each others progress or lack thereof. We were having a great meal, and as we came to the end, I stopped the waitress and said, I would like some ice cream for dessert. As far as I am concerned, that is a rather reasonable request and quite in keeping with the environment I was in. What kind of ice cream, she queried, would you like? When it comes to ice cream, ice cream is simply ice cream to me. If there is a avor of ice cream I do not like, it has yet to be invented. I love ice cream. My favorite song is, I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. In my date book, there is no better ending to a wonderful meal than ice cream. I remember my grandfathers favorite ice cream was vanilla. He would not eat any other ice cream; he thought they were polluting it with colors. To him an ice cream sundae was as close to blaspheme as he ever would get. Why ruin, he objected, the ice cream with all that slop? He wanted nothing coming between him and the purest experience of ice cream he could get. Me, I love ice cream regardless of the avor or color or slop. I looked at the waitress and simply said, I dont care what avor you bring me. Surprise me, as long as it isnt broccoli. That was supposed to be a joke. Ha ha ha. As the waitress left our table, we resumed our conversation and shortly she returned with the ice cream. Upon her arrival, I looked at her and then the ice cream she was bringing and almost screamed aloud. Of all the blasphemous things to do to a customer, this has to take the cake. First, she had an ice cream bowl with three scoops of ice cream: vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. No problem. However, on the side of the dish in plain view for everybody to see, especially me, was a piece of broccoli. Broccoli! The forbidden fruit or whatever it is. My dining companions thought this was the funniest thing they had ever seen. Particularly nding it funny was the dining companion that was going to come home with me that night. Not only did they laugh. The waitress laughed. The table next to us began to laugh. The table next to them began to laugh. It was not long before everybody within 173 miles was laughing at my ice cream/ broccoli dessert. Actually, not everybody was laughing. I was not laughing. Broccoli, no matter the presentation, is no laughing matter in my book. If matters could not be worse, my wife, through her hilarity spasms, reached over, picked up the broccoli and began eating it in my presence. Talk about adding insult to injury. My injury was vastly insulted. I may have been smiling on the outside, but I assure you I was more than frowning on the inside. Some things are funny; broccoli is not one of those things. Driving home amid the muf ed chuckles on the other side of the front seat, I thought of what the apostle Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (KJV), Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. I know that when Paul said, In every thing, it included things like broccoli. I must say that there are some things in life, like broccoli, where the thanksgiving is a matter of faith. I will never learn to love broccoli, but I can muster up enough faith to thank God for all things, including broccoli. Rev. James L.
