BRADY CALHOUN 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun bcalhoun@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Gambling is poised to be a hot topic in the upcoming legislative session, as incoming Senate President Don Gaetz said the state Legislature needs to deal with gaming through major legislation instead of the ticky-tacky way the government has dealt with it in the past. We have all sorts of gambling going on in Florida, some of it highly regulated like the dog and horse tracks, and some of it completely unregulated, like Internet cafes, said Gaetz, a Republican from Niceville whose district includes Bay, Holmes, Jackson and Walton counties, as well as southern Okaloosa. The state of Florida operates a numbers racket called the Florida Lottery. In January, the Legislature will take up gambling as committees in both the House and Senate examine the always controversial issue. Meanwhile, the Seminole compact, which governs what gaming is allowed on Seminole territory, will have to be renegotiated during Gaetzs two-year term. The state has never established a comprehensive policy on gaming, Gaetz said. Instead, individual pieces of gaming legislation come to the Legislature, and they were added to state law like bailing wire and chewing gum to an unbalanced and confused gaming industry in the state. Gaetz, who described Internet By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County Board of Commissioners on Nov. 27 altered the schedule of its future meetings, changing the agenda so the public hearing portion will immediately follow the consent items. The public hearing portion of the meeting is the time the board allots for the public to address the commissioners with their concerns. The hearing of the public is not necessary for public meetings, and its not in the statutes, Goodman said. Theres a bill out there for it, but it hasnt been passed yet, and the Sunshine Law is just allowing the public to have access and witness the actions of the board. Goodman said he doesnt like the public hearing portion at public meetings because it gives people the opportunity to ambush the commissioners. If you arent on the agenda (and) you have a question and we arent prepared, then the chance of them getting an answer is possibly low, Goodman said. I feel like the commissioners are being ambushed by someone whos had weeks to sit around and think of what theyre presenting to the commission, giving the board little or no time to prepare an answer or action. In other business, the board approved of a job description for the renewed position of road department secretary and approved the pay range to be negotiated between $10.77 and $14 an hour. This position will be very strenuous at rst, but it will ease up as we progress, Williams said. The board approved to advertise the position and to try and have a recommendation before Christmas. Goodman briefed the new board members that an outstanding bid for graders will need to be addressed soon. We need a little more time to review this information, said new commissioner Bill Parish said. By the next meeting, we should be ready with an answer. World Risk Management Representative Andy Cooper gave a general overview of the countys property and casualty rates. In 1998, Holmes County joined, Cooper said. Youre paying 33 percent less than you did in 2008 because of the impeccable safety record held by Holmes County. You keep the loss down, you keep the cost down. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners is 9 a.m. Dec. 11 at the board meeting room behind the courthouse. New Holmes County Commissioners Parish, Bobby Sasnett and David Whitaker were sworn in Nov. 20, a week after the commission wished outgoing Commissioners Jim King, Ron Monk and Phillip Music farewell. I was looking up the history of oaths and what its meant to our country, Holmes County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. June 1, 1789, First United States Congress, the very rst statute that they passed had to do with administering oaths. It was that important to our founding fathers, and if it was that important to them, it should be important to us.

SPEC IA L T O T HE TI ME S -ADVERT IS ER Niki Crawson, Holmes County 4-H agent, and Judy Corbus, Holmes County FCS agent, packed up peanut butter and delivered it to HCMA Ministry Center & Thrift Store in Bonifay on Nov. 16. Peanut Butter Challenge nets 2,039 jars in Panhandle cafs as growing like ragweed, is no friend to the gaming industry. In his six years in the Senate, he consistently has voted against any expansion of gam bling. However, Gaetz said he is among a very small minority of senators who oppose expansion. The opposition also has been out numbered when Florida voters go to the polls. Several counties around the state have approved slot machines, including Washington County in January. The referendum would have al lowed Stocky Hess, the owner of Ebro Greyhound Park in Washington Coun ty, to put in the machines in his facility, which already includes dog racing and poker. But before the votes were cast, Attorney General Pam Bondi issued an opinion that stated a countywide ref erendum only would be valid if it were authorized by the Legislature or in the state Constitution. Hess said an increase in gaming would be a boon to Floridas economy and increase the tax base. Studies have shown it would be a windfall for the state, Hess said. He also said current laws restrict ing gaming give some locations an ad vantage over others. He is hopeful that someday, Ebro will be allowed to com pete on a level playing eld. In January, when the committees start meeting, Gaetz will urge them to work together to evaluate the effects of gaming on communities in Florida and communities elsewhere, consider the consequences of destination casinos and develop a negotiating posture for handling the Seminole renegotiation. The committee also should look at gaming impacts in other states and hear from the people of Florida in meetings across the state and then have a robust debate with real facts. We should measure twice or three times and cut once on this issue, Gaetz said. Goodman quoted the Declaration of Independence, saying an oath is a sol emn appeal to God to witness the truth of a statement or the sincerity of a prom ise, coupled with an imprecation of divine judgment in the event of falsehood or breach of obligation. This oath means something today, Goodman said. These three men are going to stand up here, theyre going to have their loved ones up here and theyre going to put their hand on the Bible, and theyre not only going to promise to you, citizens of the county, but theyre going to promise to a divine being, Jehovah, that theyre going to fulll the terms of their oath. Theres going to be hard times in the next four years, and it was best de scribed by Thomas Jefferson when he said, Nearly all men can stand adversity, but to test a mans true character, give him power. Goodman said the new commission ers were given power, and he hoped the citizens of Holmes County would support them. The last thing Id urge for them to do is take on the role as statesmen, he said. Not a politician, but a statesman. Theres a difference that our founding fathers un derstood; the statesman is someone who thinks about the next generation; a poli tician is someone who only thinks of the next election. Theres a need for statesmen, Good man said. We need them in Tallahassee, we need them in Washington D.C., we need them here in Bonifay, Fla., Goodman said. I think its poignant that Mr. Sass ers grandchild held the Bible for him, that my kids are here, that Bill Parishs children are here. The next generation is what we need to be thinking about and not just what will affect them today but what will affect them for years to come. Shortly after the swearing in ceremony, the board approved of Monty Merchant being the new chairman and Kenneth Williams being the new vice chairman. Special to the News BONIFAY The Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundation recently presented checks to two organizations in apprecia tion for their assistance with the Pho bik Haunted Hospital fundraiser in October. Board members Rickey Callahan, Hazel Tison and Roger Brooks were on hand, along with hospital administra tor JoAnn Baker, to present checks to Ricky Ward and the Holmes County High School Drama Department and Sheriff Tim Brown and Adrienne Odom with the Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce Auxiliary. A member of the auxiliary was made available each night to assist with crowd control and security for the event. The auxiliary consists only of volunteers who donate their time to this organization. They assist the sheriffs department and are available for any high trafc event in the county. More than 50 drama students from the high school also volunteered and partici pated in the event, assisting with props and makeup and portraying various types of characters. The students have developed a love like I have for doing things for the com munity, Ward said. The experience that the students receive in working together and working hard pays off. That is a great lesson to learn. The event hosted more than 1,800 visi tors at the former hospital facility during three weekends of operation.

His death marks the third person in the Vernon High School graduation class of 1944 to die in 2012. In January, Audrey Blocker Taunton succumbed to a long period of illness. On May 16, classmate Shyne Bailey Marley died in his Wewahitchka home after a lingering sickness. Hurdis Brock earned the distinction of being the valedictorian of the 1944 Vernon High School graduates. Our classmate was born August 31, 1926, in Washington County and reared near Vernon as the oldest of four sons and one daughter born to Angus Jordon Ang Brock and Laura Ella White Brock. His sister, Sarilda Naomi Brock died at an early age. The youngest brother, James Franklin Brock (1950 VHS graduate), passed away early in adulthood. Surviving Hurdis are brothers, Drexel Henry Brock (1945 VHS graduate) and William Joseph William (Bill) Brock (1948 VHS graduate). From the rst marriage of his father to Alabama Allie White on March 4, 1900, six sons were born to the union: Clarence Hizer Brock, Johnnie B. Brock (died at early age from accidental burns sustained at an ill-fated hog killing and butchering day), Ned Brock, Joshua Josh Brock, Jefferson Newton J. N. Brock and Leslie Elbert Brock. Both families were reared on the 160-acre homestead located immediately south of Fowl Pond in Washington County. This landmark identi cation was proudly used by Ang Brock and his offspring throughout his life. The father built an impressive (for that era) multi-room, cypress home on the homestead. Here he and his sons farmed and raised sheep and cattle, which they recall as being exhaustive, manual labor, with all the children having assigned chores before and after attending school. As the cattle and sheep were allowed free-range grazing, herding the animals became a duty of each family member with only a few off days. Dear Editor: I am writing this letter in response to your coverage of the history of the Holmes County Advertiser in the Nov. 28 edition observing the 120th anniversary of the newspaper. As a great-granddaughter of the man who started the newspaper in 1892 and who later with her husband owned the newspaper, I appreciate very much your observance of this special anniversary. However, there were many factual errors made in the articles, and I would like to take this opportunity to correct some of them. I appreciate that you have allowed me this space to do so. According to the rst paragraph of the article by Ms. Spears, the Advertiser has been printed in the same location on Virginia Avenue in Bonifay for 120 years. But instead, the newspaper was founded and rst printed in 1892 at Cerro Gordo, a small community on the banks of the Choctawhatchee River. It later moved to Westville and then to Bonifay when the county seat was moved there in 1905. The same article quotes Carlton Treadwell as saying that DeVane Williams, my father, was editor until the day he died. It might seem to have been that way to Carlton because my father was editor for so many years. However, my father sold the newspaper to my husband, Orren R. Smith, and me after he had a stroke and he did not die until many years later. Other than that error, I enjoyed reading the memories Carlton had of the newspaper, and I am glad he shared them with you. Ms. Spears refers to me as the greatgranddaughter of the original owner, Edward A. Williams. My great-grandfather, W. D. Williams, was the founding editor and publisher of the Advertiser. He was succeeded by my grandfather, E. A. Williams, whom I knew extremely well when I was growing up. He was editor and publisher for 40 years. My grandfather was succeeded in that position by my father, DeVane Williams, who had worked with his father since 1939, and became editor and publisher for 25 years after E.A. Williams retirement in 1949. My fathers brother, Edward A. Williams, Jr., was a teacher and principal in Holmes County schools for 14 years before he became Bonifays postmaster, a position he held for 25 years. Ms. Spears repeatedly referred to my Uncle Edward as Edward Williams II. He was never known as a II. LETTER TO THE EDITOR Descendent corrects Advertiser history See LETTER A5 PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells Recently, I have heard of the fad of wearing gaudy Christmas sweaters by some of my great-nieces and nephews who are college students. Wow! I am still wearing some of mine not knowing that they are pass. They dont just wear them at Christmas or Halloween, to my understanding. One niece is planning a college presentation in her events planning major, and shell be capitalizing on the fad as part of her Christmas event planning. She needs to come and go through my wardrobe. Thinking about the Christmas sweater fad reminded me of the tacky parties we had as teenagers. This, I suppose, was an adaptation of society folks costume parties. Girls would dress up like boys, boys would dress up like girls and any other outlandish get-up we could devise. Some of the things that we see today as fashionable, such as wearing high heels with blue jeans, socks with sandals and odd color combinations such as turquoise and hot pink, lime green and red, etc., might have been worn to a tacky party. When I saw the rst girl wearing a T-shirt showing out from underneath a shorter, tighter shirt, I thought poor thing. Too bad her top shirt is too small. I have a picture somewhere of my sisters 11th grade class posing as tacky. She had on short shorts with stockings and high heels. (Remember, we didnt have panty hose back in the Dark Ages.) That would be the equivalent of the hot-pants of the s and s. The loose pants that some boys are wearing today, which would fall off if they were forced to turn them loose, would not have even been worn to a tacky party. If they were, wed have felt sorry for them thinking they had to wear their fathers pants. Thank goodness that fad seems to be fading out with most kids. I hadnt thought of tacky parties since I dont know when. So I wondered if any one else had. When I Googled it, I found it a very hot topic, including tacky Christmas sweater parties. Several go into great detail about how to have a tacky party. However, I liked one ladys best. Here are some of her suggestions for a tacky party. As in any party planning, think of the guest list, rst. Include people who like to laugh and have fun. But you also have to include some who dont get out much and need to laugh and have fun. For invitations, she suggests left-over invitations, just cross out baby shower, wedding party or whatever its original use and write in Tacky Party. I like this next step. Dont clean up the house. For food, let the guests bring it or take out all the leftovers. Potted meat, spam or any other high preservative foods are also appropriate. For serving, dont get out your best china. Use up the left over paper goods from grandmas 80th birthday celebration, sisters graduation party, the youngest sons Superman party or whatever odds and ends of paper goods you have around the house. For games she suggested such things as pin-the-tail-on-thedonkey, musical chairs or other old fashioned games. Wonder if anyone remembers the winking game? For what to wear, she suggests they may come in pajamas, leisure suits, jogging clothes or etc. That brought to mind Come as you are parties of another era where you were supposed to come the way you were dressed when you received the invitation. One main suggestion for the ugly Christmas sweater party was to turn the heat down before your guests arrive, because with all those heavy sweaters in a crowded room, things will quickly get steamy. I had a lot of fun reading about tacky parties and ugly Christmas sweater parties. The only drawback now is that I will be selfconscious about wearing my Christmas sweaters this season. Maybe we will turn our church choirs after-the-concert party into an ugly sweater party. Note: How do you make egg bread without any eggs? For my recipe, several asked me, How many eggs? For the recipe I gave, I use four large eggs, or ve or six medium eggs. I goof a lot of times, but I hope no one tried to make my egg bread for Thanksgiving dressing according to my recipe. Thanks for your feedback. HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison Are tacky parties a thing of the past? Ugly Christmas sweater parties are becoming the new tacky parties.

That is only partially true. Orren, a 1955 graduate of the University of Florida, went to law school at Florida State University after we sold the paper. I graduated from Florida State University in 1959 with a degree in English education, taught high school English for a few years, then stayed home after our son Stephen was born and also worked part-time at the Advertiser for 12 years and then began teaching again when Orren went to law school. So her statement, After college, they both went into their prospective [sic] elds is misleading. Finally, in reference to the article by Editor Randal Seyler: His statement that the newspaper was burned out twice, with no insurance is news to me. I would be interested in knowing his source for this. He also said that in the rst 29 years of its existence, the paper was printed in a dozen or more places. This is simply not true. It was rst printed in Cerro Gordo, then Westville and then Bonifay, where it was continuously printed until the 1960s when my father began to take it to other locations (one I remember was Camilla, Ga.) where it was nancially more pro table to be printed than for him to have to purchase new printing equipment for his business. However, all of the typesetting and layout was done in Bonifay. Mr. Seyler stated that my father ran the newspaper until its sale in 1981 to Larry and Merle Woodham. Again, that is a factual error. As I said earlier, after he had a stroke, my father sold the paper to my husband and me. Orren Smith was the editor and publisher of the paper when it was sold to the Woodhams. I do not want to come across as angry about these mistakes, but I believe in making corrections when mistakes are made, especially about something as dear to me as the Holmes County Advertiser was for so many years of my life. I want its history to be told correctly. The blood, sweat and tears of four generations of my family is tied to this newspaper. Quoting something my grandfather wrote in 1929 on the 36th anniversary of the paper concerning what he felt about the meaning of this local newspaper: It has been to us life, your life and ours, the welfare of which was our supreme concern. Truly, I appreciate your special observance of the 120th anniversary of this newspaper. Small town, locally owned newspapers are slowly becoming a dying breed, Im afraid. So I heartily wish you much success as you strive to continue a great tradition in American journalism. Sincerely, Dianne Williams Smith LETTER from page A4 During any free time, they enjoyed hunting and shing and swimming in Pate Pond. Four of the sons from the rst family remained in the area and had farming operations of their own. The younger sons became well-familiar with the hard labor of plowing with a mule, weed pulling by hand and cutting and storing hay for winter feeding, all by hand. As adults, they left the farm for other jobs in a variety of vocations. Hurdis is wellremembered as always having some ready, limited-spending money at recess and lunchtime, which none of the other boys in the class had. Later we were told that he and the other sons had their own sheep in the herd, and at shearing time, when that particular animal was sheared, the individual son knew those proceeds would be kept separate and given to him for his labors. The method of robbing the sheep of the prized wool is a procedure wellremembered by each of the brothers. The Prattler is indebted to Doug Brock, nephew of the deceased, for his comprehensive story on this pioneer family contained in the Heritage of Washington Book, pages 156 and 157. (This book is once again available with a fourth printing. Call the writer at 638-1016 should you be interested in obtaining one.) Hurdis was a classmate of the Prattler, as well as a friend and kinsman. He, along with others in our class, Oakley Hightower and Frederick Kolmetz, along with your writer, seemed to have a special bond of friendship that has endured down through the years. Sadly, we lost Oakley in death too early in his promising career in Floridas Educational System. After U. S. Army service during World War II in Germany and Okinawa, Hurdis enrolled in Floirda State University. His schooling was interrupted when he was called back into the military during the Korean Con ict. His rst marriage was to Dot Lane, and they had three sons: Steve, Stan and Scott. After Dots death, he married Dora Merle Sal Hudson Brock. She along with the sons, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and a host of cousins and other relatives survive Hurdis Brock. Hurdis spent his working years in Okaloosa County, including Crestview and Ft. Walton Beach, where he served on the city council from 1971-1979. He was also active in many other civic and professional organizations. He was employed by Taylor Parts and Supply Company and its successor, CarQuest Auto Parts, until his retirement. Funeral services were held Nov. 20, 2012, at First Baptist Church in Crestview, where he was a member. Included in the service were moving tributes spoken by his three sons, Steve, Stan and Scott, under the heading of Re ections on the life of Brock. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Whitehurst-Powell Funeral Home of Crestivew with interment at Live Oak Park Memorial Cemetery.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, December 5, 2012 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section By JESSICA THERRIAULT Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Ever wonder what digs those cone-shaped indentations in sandy areas of your yard? It is an insect called an ant lion. The ant lion is neither an ant nor a lion. It is a harmless (to people) insect that looks more like a scimovie monster than a real-life backyard critter. It has an appetite to match its ferocious appearance, and its name has everything to do with its favorite meal: ants. There are about 2,000 species of ant lions found throughout the world, mostly in warm climates. Florida has 22 species found throughout the state. Also called a doodlebug when in its immature or larval stage, the ant lion is unique not only because of how it looks and what it eats but also how it catches its prey. As its nickname suggests, this bug doodles, or makes squiggly lines, while moving backward in the sand. Using its jaws to ick away sand, it digs out a cone-shaped pit to trap its prey: ants and other small arthropods that wander too close. It is almost impossible for an ant to climb on the pits slope of loose sand, or to escape before falling to the bottom of the pit to become the ant lions next meal. Sand pits are about the size of a silver dollar (some smaller, some larger, depending on the size of the maker) and an inch or more deep. To view ant lion behavior, search for sandy soil in your yard and look for small, cone-shaped indentations in the soil. You might nd several in one spot. Favorite pit sites are places protected from the rain, such as beneath a raised building, overhanging eaves or other sheltering object. If you can carefully catch an ant, preferably not a re ant (we dont want you to get hurt), drop it into the pit, and the ant lion should react quickly. The ant lion waits for its prey under the soil at the bottom of the pit. If you wish to view one of these insects even closer, scoop it out of the pit with a spoon. Start at one side, scooping under the cone, and lift the entire pit in one scoop. Gently dump the pile of sand onto a white sheet of paper and push the sand until you spot the ant lion. It is camou aged and dif cult to see. If you see it and it appears motionless, just wait; it soon should ip over and try to rebury itself in the sand. Up close, the young ant lion is brown or gray with a plump body, short legs and a large head dominated by spiny jaws called mandibles that stick out. These jaws have tiny, needle-like teeth that inject their soon-to-be meal with venom. They are usually harmless to touch and rarely bite. If you do nd one, it is best not to handle it, and never pick it up with your ngers because its body is soft and you could hurt it. Simply watch it for a while and then place it gently back on the sand where you found it. Being an ant bully is only a part of the ant lions life cycle. This monster-looking insect transforms into a handsome, winged insect similar to a dragon y and spends its adult life ying in forested areas, usually in summer months and at night. FWC When magni ed, the ant lion looks more like a scimovie monster. It has jaws with tiny, needle-like teeth that inject their soon-to-be lunch with venom, allowing them to kill and ingest their prey. By BOB WATTENDORF Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The holiday season is upon us. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or having a few extra days to celebrate with family and friends, coming up with appropriate presents can be a challenge. The key to gift-giving is matching the gift to the person while making sure it is something he or she will enjoy and is not too expensive. If it also helps Mother Nature, it might be the perfect gift. With that in mind, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has several suggestions for your holiday shopping. How about an offering guaranteed to create a happier, healthier and more productive lifestyle? Richard Louv, chairman emeritus of the Children & Nature Network and author of The Nature Principle and Last Child in the Woods, has made a solid case, supported by years of research, that connecting with nature results in those bene ts. Being able to spend time in nature brings people of any age back to the roots connecting them with the nurturing earth. In a time when frantic schedules, enclosed spaces and constant noise tend to drive us a little crazy, it is a real gift to get outdoors and relax with family and friends, get moving to burn off some excess holiday calories and open the door to better communications. To start, how about planning a nature hike or shing trip? Perhaps more than any other form of recreation, shing and boating are critical to the health and well-being of Americas outdoor heritage, according to the Outdoor Foundation. By boat and on land, the rst outdoor experience for many Americans is shing, introducing tens of millions of people each year to the wonders of nature. Fishing also serves as an important bridge and top gateway activity that leads participants to other outdoor passions. So why not invite your family and friends on a fun shing trip, right here in Florida the Fishing Capital of the World (FishingCapital. com)? An annual resident shing license is easy to obtain at License.MyFWC.com, by calling 888FISH-FLORIDA or by visiting a local retailer that sells shing tackle and licenses. A veyear freshwater shing license makes an especially great gift. While you are purchasing the license, you will have the opportunity to make a donation to the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network to help the FWC with creating the next generation that cares. An annual freshwater shing license costs $17. Because the average angler shes 17 times a year (U.S. Census Bureau research) and enjoys four to ve hours on a typical trip, the cost is less than a quarter per hour of fun and healthy recreation. When you purchase a license you also provide a gift to nature and future generations of anglers and outdoor enthusiasts. For 75 years, the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program has guaranteed that shing license fees are protected by law and can only be used for sh and wildlife conservation. Moreover, fees collected by the federal government on shing tackle, pleasure boats and motor boat fuels provide additional funding for recreational shing and conservation. While putting a shing-related gift pack together, you can nd lots of information about shing tips and gear at MyFWC.com/Fishing, along with shing sites and up-to-date forecasts. One of the most fun tips is to have everyone register for Floridas freshwater angler recognition programs, including TrophyCatch and Big Catch, at TrophyCatchFlorida. com. When you register, you become eligible for a Phoenix 619 Pro bass boat and trailer, with a Mercury outboard and Motor Guide trolling motor. That drawing will be in October 2013. However, for the hard-core freshwater anglers who travel from all across the world to sh Floridas fresh water, the ultimate catch is a trophy largemouth bass. The FWC and corporate partners reward anglers for reporting those sh and then releasing them to challenge another angler and to keep the shery thriving. To learn more and keep informed, like us at Facebook.com/TrophyCatchFlorida. Another great gift that will help anglers boast about their sport while supporting conservation is a Go Fishing largemouth bass specialty license plate for their vehicle or trailer. Simply go to Buyaplate.com, or purchase a gift certi cate at an authorized motor vehicle of ce. Gifts for nature lovers Gifts for nature lovers To: Outdoorsman BY STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission With our hunting seasons in full swing, there literally are thousands of hunters a eld. Most hunters are law-abiding and never nd themselves in sticky situations. Most hunters also are guided by a sense of hunting ethics. Simply put, hunting ethics involve a pattern of behavior that isnt written as law but is respectful of fellow outdoorsmen and women. Sometimes, hunter ethics arent what they should be, and con icts arise. Case in point: I was speaking with a local duck hunter who hunted Lake Seminole last week. He told me he and two equally hard-core duck hunters met at 3:30 a.m., went out to their favorite location, put out two dozen decoys and concealed their boat in the marsh along the shoreline. Several other boats and duck hunters soon arrived, and one group put out decoys and set up within 100 yards of the rst hunters, despite the rst group shining a light and asking them to give them some space. To add insult to injury, the late-arriving hunters shot at ducks out of range at daylight, diminishing anyone elses chances for success. A similar situation we sometimes hear about involves those who hunt wild turkeys on public or private lands. Again, some folks hunt near another hunter, especially when one hunter is entrenched long before the other person arrives on the scene. In both situations, a sense of etiquette was lost and, instead of having an enjoyable relaxing, quality time outdoors, tempers ared and people left unhappy. Sometimes a sense of ethics is lost when shing, as well. This summer I spoke to an angler who was shing on a wreck several miles off the Bay County coast when a dive boat arrived and several divers with spear guns descended into the depths. The sherman was beyond livid. What these situations, and a thousand other similar ones in the outdoors, should remind us is to keep in mind the Golden Rule and treat others a eld the way we want to be treated. If that happens, we will all be happier. Practice the Golden Rule while outdoors Ferocious ant lion is an ant bully

LAS VEGAS (AP) If his goal was to keep all of NASCAR on its toes during Champions Week, Brad Keselowski played it perfectly. He was brash and bold and changed nothing about his personality as he seamlessly navigated press events, cocktail receptions, sponsor dinners and socializing. He burned the candle at both ends in Las Vegas, trying hard to hold his own with veteran drivers who tried but failed to rattle him with some lighthearted hazing. Keselowski was like the pesky kid brother nobody wanted around, and he seemed to love playing the part. Until it was time to be the Sprint Cup champion. Keselowski of cially accepted his new title with an unscripted speech that impressed most everyone in the crowd of 1,500 in the ballroom of the Wynn Las Vegas Resort. He refused to write a speech ahead of time, which had NASCAR of cials holding their breath for most of the 12 minutes Keselowski spoke. In going up to the podium with no notes loaded into the TelePrompTer, Keselowski joined Jimmie Johnson as the only two drivers in the last decade to go off-the-cuff in their championship speeches. Johnson only did it once, after his fth title in 2010. The highlight of Keselowskis speech was the close, in which it became clear how much he appreciates his new role as champion. As we look into I hope as a sport we can continue to nd common ground to unify, Keselowski said. We have some of the smartest people that can solve any problem. As a champion, I want to be your leader, and I want to help you make it happen. His remarks come with NASCAR down to roughly eight weeks to nalize development on its 2013 car, which the industry is counting on to improve the racing. As attendance and television ratings continue to slip, the actual on-track product is under heavy scrutiny and the garage seems divided as to how it can be improved. At 28, Keselowski is the eighthyoungest champion in Cup history and he claimed his title in just his third full season. But he grew up in a racing family and has a strong desire to do his part to help motorsports succeed. And as a driver for Roger Penske, the team owner who is deeply committed to both NASCAR and the struggling IndyCar Series, Keselowski understands the challenges currently facing American auto racing. Thats what he meant, he said after Friday nights speech, when he called for unity. You look at IndyCar and the things they are ghting, it shows how you can take a series with great action, great people and (throw) it all away when you dont work together, Keselowski said. I feel like in our series, we have the potential to be stronger than what we are if we work together. I want to be a part of that, to work with others and help move this sport forward and make it as strong as we can be. It was a humble side of Keselowski that he rarely shows, partly because he likes to be different and enjoys keeping everyone guessing. Its part of a game Keselowski is seemingly playing at times as he tries to beat his competitors both on and off the track. Three-time champion Tony Stewart seems wise to Keselowskis act, noting in his speech that the late NASCAR spokesman Jim Hunter would have really enjoyed Keselowski if hed gotten a chance to know the driver. Hunter enjoyed edgy and colorful drivers, and grew close to Stewart at a time when Stewart was sparring with most NASCAR of cials. I dont think Brad has learned to be cautious yet, Stewart said. Hopefully that wont bite him like it has a lot of drivers in the past. But its refreshing. Its nice to see somebody that just speaks from the heart and isnt guarded when he speaks. Thats the way all of us should be. Four-time champion Jeff Gordon agreed Keselowski is a bit of a throwback, and shouldnt change. Too polished is sometimes not good, either, Gordon said. Youve got to be who you are and let that shine. Thats what I see in him. There doesnt seem like theres much fazing him or changing him, at least not what Ive seen so far, so I dont anticipate it happening. Its worked for Keselowski, who went from a development driver in the Hendrick Motorsports system quickly earning a reputation as a wild child with no regard for others to the top of the sport in a little over three years. Hes done it by settling into a home with Penske, learning how to be a team leader and getting comfortable in his own skin. The payoff was a Nationwide Series championship in 2010 with crew chief Paul Wolfe, the rst of cial NASCAR championship for Penske, and then a long-term contract extension that was announced a year ago for Keselowski and Wolfe. Then the duo teamed together this season to win ve races two in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship and bring Penske Racing its rst Cup title 40 years after Penske rst entered NASCAR. It carried a $5,728,405 bonus from series sponsor Sprint that pushed the No. 2 teams season winnings to $12,106,255. More importantly, it provided credibility to a voice Keselowski is unafraid to use. To see Brad and how he is going to represent the sport probably means the most to me because hes loyal, Penske said. I think what you see is what you get. Hes a high-integrity guy, hes a hard worker and hes a big team player.

By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com BRISTOL Liberty County provided the shovel, Northview dug the hole. The Chiefs jumped on early Bulldogs miscues and cruised to a 48-14 victory in a Class 1A state football semi nal on Friday. Brannon Freeman rushed for 148 yards and LaMikal Kyles 116, and they combined for ve touchdowns in the rout. Northviews defense also held down Liberty County, and the Bulldogs continued to stunt their progress with key penalties. Northview (10-3) moved on to its rst state nal to face the winner of Trenton-Newberry in Orlando on Friday. The Chiefs survived their rst state semi nal after falling short at the same point in each of the past two seasons. Liberty County (10-3) last advanced to the state nal in 1969 and will have to wait at least another year to end the drought. Liberty County coach Grant Grantham stated the obvious earlier in the week, that the Bulldogs would need to play cleanly to have a shot to win. They didnt and couldnt get untracked to make a dent in the de cit. We didnt start off well or like we needed to, Grantham said. They had been turning the ball over lately but didnt tonight. We did and it changed the game. Northview scored ve plays after Liberty County fumbled away the opening kickoff return. Freeman capped the drive with a 2-yard run and his rst score of the rst half. Liberty County, which had a nine-game winning streak snapped, punted on its next series, but the ball drifted out of bounds after only 13 yards. Northview took over at its 46 and scored seven plays later on a 2-yard run by Kyles, who also scored twice in the rst half. The Bulldogs tried to mount answers and had two manageable fourth-down tries on two drives. However, illegal procedure penalties on each pushed them into fourth-and-10 each time, and Liberty County decided to punt on one possession and turned the ball over on downs on the second. Northview racked up 228 yards and a 28-0 halftime lead. Liberty County was held to 94 yards in the rst half. The Bulldogs deepest penetration was the Chiefs 20 on a possession that ended with an interception before Alex Marlowe nally put Liberty County on the scoredboard with a 50yard run late in the third quarter. Marlowe, one of 12 seniors, nished with 113 yards rushing and grabbed two receptions for 47 to lead Liberty County. Dustin Watson, also a senior, was 3 of 13 for 59 yards while adding a touchdown and an interception. The group of seniors and the rest of the team helped Liberty County nish with one of its best seasons since previously advancing to the state semis in 1998. This group won 38 games in four years, Grantham said. They are a ne group of kids.

Banish Fear and Anger From Your Life Fear and anger are natural human emotions and it is perfectly appropriate to feel them in the appropriate circumstances. These emotions, which are closely natural mechanisms for self-preservation. It is clear ly a good thing to feel fear when in the presence of real danger or anger. Fear and anger are a bit like warning bells or alarms, telling us that we need to and theres no real danger. Some politicians and certain media outlets are good at stoking fear and anger, and seem bent on keeping us in a perpetual state of fear and anger. If a tornado is heading your way, its probably appropriate to be fearful (and to get in the basement), but should we really be angry or fearful about national or international politics? We should not be passively resigned in the face of poli tics. People should be informed and get involved in local, state and national politics, but we need not get overly disturbed about it. The real problem with all of the fear and anger generated these days is how unproductive and debilitating it is. It keeps the talking heads happy, but it leaves the rest of us fearful, angry, and powerless to do much about it. So, perhaps we should keep our heads calm and really need it. BROWN FUNERAL HOME 1068 Main Street, Chipley 638-4010 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser This Message Courtesy of He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. R.S.V. Proverbs 16:32 By THE REV. JAMES L. SNYDER, D.LITT I will confess right up front to a certain degree of confusion. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage will corroborate this confession. So many things confuse me; I am not sure where to begin, and once I begin, where in the world will it stop? I have been married for over 41 years but I must confess, not to the same woman. Oh yes, it is the same woman with the same name but it is not the same woman I married 41 years ago. Where is that young woman I married? When rst married, I thought I knew everything there was to know about women and wives in particular. I do not know if it is the ensuing years but I am rather confused about this whole matter of being married. I suppose that is the mystery of romance. If you ever gure it out it loses its charm. Romance without charm is just an old man and an old woman who have lived together for 41 years. That is just one area of confusion. I harbor no aspiration of unconfusing my level of confusion in that area. There are other areas I could work on that might be a little more productive in this regard. An area particularly that has me greatly confused is the Christmas season with all the Christmas decorations including the ominous Christmas tree. Oh, how I love that old Christmas tree and decorating it and celebrating the whole Christmas spirit. What has been confusing me for the last several years is this uncertainty about the season. Some people do not want to call it the Christmas season; rather they refer to it as the holiday season. What I want to know is, what holiday are we celebrating in December? I know the holiday we celebrate in November, and the other holidays sprinkled throughout the year. In July, for example, nobody calls it a holiday parade. It is the Fourth of July parade, for Petes sake! In February, nobody calls it a holiday banquet. It is a Valentines banquet. Just so everybody knows, nobody will catch me singing a holiday carol. I suppose with all the holidays in this country throughout the year it would be simpler just to call everything a holiday. That would simplify things and help those who cannot keep up with the calendar. I am all for that. It seems the only squabbling that goes on is during the month of December. Actually, the squabbling begins before our turkey dinner has nished digesting. Maybe some people get too much turkey in their system and it clouds their thinking. All they have to do is squabble about something and so the only thing in front of them is the Christmas season. I get that. What I do not get is the level of anger directed in this direction. It would seem that the Christmas season offers a huge threat to our society. We cannot call our Christmas tree a Christmas tree; it has to be called a holiday tree. Everybody knows, the word Christmas tree is some kind of code inviting disaster on our society. I have never heard anybody de ne or describe what that disaster would look like. What amazes me is simply that this is a huge issue in some peoples minds. Nothing is more dangerous to society than this. The word Christmas carries with it more danger to our society than the ominous nancial cliff we are facing, the threat of terrorism in our own country and Lindsay Lohan at 4 a.m. What is more confusing to me is that these people who are trying to protect our society from anything religious wants to substitute the word Christmas for the word holiday. It just shows the level of education in our country has not kept up with the times. I know it has been a long time since I have been in school, but I do know that certain words have certain de nitions. Do the people who object to anything religious understand that the word holiday comes from the phrase holy day? I am not a PhD but I do know that the phrase holy day has religious roots. So, I am really confused along this line. On the one hand, we are not to use the word Christmas because of its religious connotations. At the same time, we are supposed to use the word holiday which in every dictionary in the land means holy day. I could be corrected along this line, but in my thinking the phrase, holy day has some very distinct religious roots. When I hear somebody complaining along this line, and they do it so vehemently, I have a question as to their sanity. It does not make sense to me. Christmas is a holy day but we are not allowed to think of it as a holy day just use the term holiday. Now I am really confused. Is it a holiday or a holy day? Is it sacred or is it secular? What holiday does a holiday tree really celebrate? I like what the apostle Paul wrote, Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days (Colossians 2:16 KJV). I will not allow any mans objections affect my celebration of the Christmas season. To quote from a great secular classic, God bless us, everyone. The Rev. James L.

I was born and raised just two miles from Veterans Memorial Park. I am blessed to have great parents, Phillip and Janice Music, a loving wife, Angela, and four wonderful children, Matthew, Cassidy, Daniel and Zackary. I enlisted in the Army National Guard in Bonifay on my 18th birthday. I didnt join for the bene ts; I joined to help Americans in need. I get that from my father. I always admired the soldiers who assisted the citizens during times of need such as hurricanes and oods. I was called to active duty on Dec. 26, 2002. My unit, Charlie Company 3rd 124 INF, was sent to Kuwait for the invasion of Iraq. Again in 2010 we were activated for another tour of Operation Iraqi Freedom. And that brings me to today. When I was asked to speak at Veterans Park on Veterans Day, I was honored. Veterans Day is set aside to remember every man and woman who has taken up arms to defend our country. On Veterans Day, we gave honor to every soldier, sailor, airman, Marine and Coast Guardsman who gave some of the best years of their lives to the service of the United States and stood ready to give life itself on our behalf. When we observed Veterans Day, we were thinking of our veterans of past wars and con icts World War II, The Korean War, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, The Gulf War, Iraq and Afghanistan. We also remember our fellow Americans last seen on duty, whose fate is still undetermined. We will not rest until all Americans are accounted for. On Veterans Day, we are thinking of tomorrows veterans that are in combat in Afghanistan this hour. They are making us proud. We are also thinking of the men and women who did not live to be called veterans. Our whole nation honors every patriot who placed duty and honor before their own lives. They gave us every day that we live in freedom. I would like to also recognize all the spouses of our veterans, who are the backbone of all soldiers, whose support from letters, care packages, phone calls and emails made our time away from our families a little less painful. A true soldier ghts not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him. I encourage everyone to honor our veterans and say Thank you. Honor our veterans and say Thank you PHOTOS SPECIAL TO EXTRA

BRADY CALHOUN747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun bcalhoun@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Gambling is poised to be a hot topic in the upcoming legislative session, as incoming Senate President Don Gaetz said the state Legislature needs to deal with gaming through major legislation instead of the ticky-tacky way the government has dealt with it in the past. We have all sorts of gambling going on in Florida, some of it highly regulated like the dog and horse tracks, and some of it completely unregulated, like Internet cafes, said Gaetz, a Republican from Niceville whose district includes Bay, Holmes, Jackson and Walton counties, as well as southern Okaloosa. The state of Florida operates a numbers racket called the Florida Lottery. In January, the Legislature will take up gambling as committees in both the House and Senate examine the always controversial issue. Meanwhile, the Seminole compact, which governs what gaming is allowed on Seminole territory, will have to be renegotiated during Gaetzs two-year term. The state has never established a comprehensive policy on gaming, Gaetz said. Instead, individual pieces of gaming legislation come to the Legislature, and they were added to state law like bailing wire and chewing gum to an unbalanced and confused gaming industry in the state. Gaetz, who described Internet By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Holmes County Board of Commissioners on Nov. 27 altered the schedule of its future meetings, changing the agenda so the public hearing portion will immediately follow the consent items. The public hearing portion of the meeting is the time the board allots for the public to address the commissioners with their concerns. The hearing of the public is not necessary for public meetings, and its not in the statutes, Goodman said. Theres a bill out there for it, but it hasnt been passed yet, and the Sunshine Law is just allowing the public to have access and witness the actions of the board. Goodman said he doesnt like the public hearing portion at public meetings because it gives people the opportunity to ambush the commissioners. If you arent on the agenda (and) you have a question and we arent prepared, then the chance of them getting an answer is possibly low, Goodman said. I feel like the commissioners are being ambushed by someone whos had weeks to sit around and think of what theyre presenting to the commission, giving the board little or no time to prepare an answer or action. In other business, the board approved of a job description for the renewed position of road department secretary and approved the pay range to be negotiated between $10.77 and $14 an hour. This position will be very strenuous at rst, but it will ease up as we progress, Williams said. The board approved to advertise the position and to try and have a recommendation before Christmas. Goodman briefed the new board members that an outstanding bid for graders will need to be addressed soon. We need a little more time to review this information, said new commissioner Bill Parish said. By the next meeting, we should be ready with an answer. World Risk Management Representative Andy Cooper gave a general overview of the countys property and casualty rates. In 1998, Holmes County joined, Cooper said. Youre paying 33 percent less than you did in 2008 because of the impeccable safety record held by Holmes County. You keep the loss down, you keep the cost down. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners is 9 a.m. Dec. 11 at the board meeting room behind the courthouse. New Holmes County Commissioners Parish, Bobby Sasnett and David Whitaker were sworn in Nov. 20, a week after the commission wished outgoing Commissioners Jim King, Ron Monk and Phillip Music farewell. I was looking up the history of oaths and what its meant to our country, Holmes County Attorney Jeff Goodman said. June 1, 1789, First United States Congress, the very rst statute that they passed had to do with administering oaths. It was that important to our founding fathers, and if it was that important to them, it should be important to us.Special to the Times-AdvertiserBONIFAY The Holmes County High School Theatre Department will present The Importance of Being Earnest at 7 p.m. Thursday, Saturday and Monday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the HCHS Auditorium.

Niki Crawson, Holmes County 4-H agent, and Judy Corbus, Holmes County FCS agent, packed up the nutritious donation and delivered it to HCMA Ministry Center & Thrift Store on U.S. 90 West in Bonifay to help Holmes County families in need. Bonifay Elementary School rstgrade classrooms were a large part of the collection drive this year, Crawson said. Special thanks to all rstgrade students and their teachers for supporting this project. Mrs. Taylors class held the title of most jars collected and will be celebrating their community support wins with a pizza party. All University of Florida IFAS Extension Ofces held a peanut butter drive in their counties. In total, 2,039 jars of peanut butter comprising almost a ton and half of peanut butter were collected across the Florida Panhandle during this drive. On behalf of the University of Florida IFAS-Holmes County Extension, thank you to all the local citizens who participated in the peanut butter drive to support UF IFAS Extension in their efforts to assist families in need and our hard-working local peanut producers, Crawson said.

In his six years in the Senate, he consistently has voted against any expansion of gambling. However, Gaetz said he is among a very small minority of senators who oppose expansion. The opposition also has been outnumbered when Florida voters go to the polls. Several counties around the state have approved slot machines, including Washington County in January. The referendum would have allowed Stocky Hess, the owner of Ebro Greyhound Park in Washington County, to put in the machines in his facility, which already includes dog racing and poker. But before the votes were cast, Attorney General Pam Bondi issued an opinion that stated a countywide referendum only would be valid if it were authorized by the Legislature or in the state Constitution. Hess said an increase in gaming would be a boon to Floridas economy and increase the tax base. Studies have shown it would be a windfall for the state, Hess said. He also said current laws restricting gaming give some locations an advantage over others. He is hopeful that someday, Ebro will be allowed to compete on a level playing eld. In January, when the committees start meeting, Gaetz will urge them to work together to evaluate the effects of gaming on communities in Florida and communities elsewhere, consider the consequences of destination casinos and develop a negotiating posture for handling the Seminole renegotiation. The committee also should look at gaming impacts in other states and hear from the people of Florida in meetings across the state and then have a robust debate with real facts. We should measure twice or three times and cut once on this issue, Gaetz said. Goodman quoted the Declaration of Independence, saying an oath is a solemn appeal to God to witness the truth of a statement or the sincerity of a promise, coupled with an imprecation of divine judgment in the event of falsehood or breach of obligation. This oath means something today, Goodman said. These three men are going to stand up here, theyre going to have their loved ones up here and theyre going to put their hand on the Bible, and theyre not only going to promise to you, citizens of the county, but theyre going to promise to a divine being, Jehovah, that theyre going to fulll the terms of their oath. Theres going to be hard times in the next four years, and it was best described by Thomas Jefferson when he said, Nearly all men can stand adversity, but to test a mans true character, give him power. Goodman said the new commissioners were given power, and he hoped the citizens of Holmes County would support them. The last thing Id urge for them to do is take on the role as statesmen, he said. Not a politician, but a statesman. Theres a difference that our founding fathers understood; the statesman is someone who thinks about the next generation; a politician is someone who only thinks of the next election. Theres a need for statesmen, Goodman said. We need them in Tallahassee, we need them in Washington D.C., we need them here in Bonifay, Fla., Goodman said. I think its poignant that Mr. Sassers grandchild held the Bible for him, that my kids are here, that Bill Parishs children are here. The next generation is what we need to be thinking about and not just what will affect them today but what will affect them for years to come. Shortly after the swearing in ceremony, the board approved of Monty Merchant being the new chairman and Kenneth Williams being the new vice chairman.Special to the NewsBONIFAY The Doctors Memorial Hospital Foundation recently presented checks to two organizations in appreciation for their assistance with the Phobik Haunted Hospital fundraiser in October.

More than 50 drama students from the high school also volunteered and participated in the event, assisting with props and makeup and portraying various types of characters. The students have developed a love like I have for doing things for the community, Ward said. The experience that the students receive in working together and working hard pays off.

His death marks the third person in the Vernon High School graduation class of 1944 to die in 2012. In January, Audrey Blocker Taunton succumbed to a long period of illness. On May 16, classmate Shyne Bailey Marley died in his Wewahitchka home after a lingering sickness. Hurdis Brock earned the distinction of being the valedictorian of the 1944 Vernon High School graduates. Our classmate was born August 31, 1926, in Washington County and reared near Vernon as the oldest of four sons and one daughter born to Angus Jordon Ang Brock and Laura Ella White Brock. His sister, Sarilda Naomi Brock died at an early age. The youngest brother, James Franklin Brock (1950 VHS graduate), passed away early in adulthood. Surviving Hurdis are brothers, Drexel Henry Brock (1945 VHS graduate) and William Joseph William (Bill) Brock (1948 VHS graduate). From the rst marriage of his father to Alabama Allie White on March 4, 1900, six sons were born to the union: Clarence Hizer Brock, Johnnie B. Brock (died at early age from accidental burns sustained at an ill-fated hog killing and butchering day), Ned Brock, Joshua Josh Brock, Jefferson Newton J. N. Brock and Leslie Elbert Brock. Both families were reared on the 160-acre homestead located immediately south of Fowl Pond in Washington County. This landmark identi cation was proudly used by Ang Brock and his offspring throughout his life. The father built an impressive (for that era) multi-room, cypress home on the homestead. Here he and his sons farmed and raised sheep and cattle, which they recall as being exhaustive, manual labor, with all the children having assigned chores before and after attending school. As the cattle and sheep were allowed free-range grazing, herding the animals became a duty of each family member with only a few off days. Dear Editor: I am writing this letter in response to your coverage of the history of the Holmes County Advertiser in the Nov. 28 edition observing the 120th anniversary of the newspaper. As a great-granddaughter of the man who started the newspaper in 1892 and who later with her husband owned the newspaper, I appreciate very much your observance of this special anniversary. However, there were many factual errors made in the articles, and I would like to take this opportunity to correct some of them. I appreciate that you have allowed me this space to do so. According to the rst paragraph of the article by Ms. Spears, the Advertiser has been printed in the same location on Virginia Avenue in Bonifay for 120 years. But instead, the newspaper was founded and rst printed in 1892 at Cerro Gordo, a small community on the banks of the Choctawhatchee River. It later moved to Westville and then to Bonifay when the county seat was moved there in 1905. The same article quotes Carlton Treadwell as saying that DeVane Williams, my father, was editor until the day he died. It might seem to have been that way to Carlton because my father was editor for so many years. However, my father sold the newspaper to my husband, Orren R. Smith, and me after he had a stroke and he did not die until many years later. Other than that error, I enjoyed reading the memories Carlton had of the newspaper, and I am glad he shared them with you. Ms. Spears refers to me as the greatgranddaughter of the original owner, Edward A. Williams. My great-grandfather, W. D. Williams, was the founding editor and publisher of the Advertiser. He was succeeded by my grandfather, E. A. Williams, whom I knew extremely well when I was growing up. He was editor and publisher for 40 years. My grandfather was succeeded in that position by my father, DeVane Williams, who had worked with his father since 1939, and became editor and publisher for 25 years after E.A. Williams retirement in 1949. My fathers brother, Edward A. Williams, Jr., was a teacher and principal in Holmes County schools for 14 years before he became Bonifays postmaster, a position he held for 25 years. Ms. Spears repeatedly referred to my Uncle Edward as Edward Williams II. He was never known as a II. LETTER TO THE EDITORDescendent corrects Advertiser historySee LETTER A5PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Recently, I have heard of the fad of wearing gaudy Christmas sweaters by some of my great-nieces and nephews who are college students. Wow! I am still wearing some of mine not knowing that they are pass. They dont just wear them at Christmas or Halloween, to my understanding. One niece is planning a college presentation in her events planning major, and shell be capitalizing on the fad as part of her Christmas event planning. She needs to come and go through my wardrobe. Thinking about the Christmas sweater fad reminded me of the tacky parties we had as teenagers. This, I suppose, was an adaptation of society folks costume parties. Girls would dress up like boys, boys would dress up like girls and any other outlandish get-up we could devise. Some of the things that we see today as fashionable, such as wearing high heels with blue jeans, socks with sandals and odd color combinations such as turquoise and hot pink, lime green and red, etc., might have been worn to a tacky party. When I saw the rst girl wearing a T-shirt showing out from underneath a shorter, tighter shirt, I thought poor thing. Too bad her top shirt is too small. I have a picture somewhere of my sisters 11th grade class posing as tacky. She had on short shorts with stockings and high heels. (Remember, we didnt have panty hose back in the Dark Ages.) That would be the equivalent of the hot-pants of the s and s. The loose pants that some boys are wearing today, which would fall off if they were forced to turn them loose, would not have even been worn to a tacky party. If they were, wed have felt sorry for them thinking they had to wear their fathers pants. Thank goodness that fad seems to be fading out with most kids. I hadnt thought of tacky parties since I dont know when. So I wondered if any one else had. When I Googled it, I found it a very hot topic, including tacky Christmas sweater parties. Several go into great detail about how to have a tacky party. However, I liked one ladys best. Here are some of her suggestions for a tacky party. As in any party planning, think of the guest list, rst. Include people who like to laugh and have fun. But you also have to include some who dont get out much and need to laugh and have fun. For invitations, she suggests left-over invitations, just cross out baby shower, wedding party or whatever its original use and write in Tacky Party. I like this next step. Dont clean up the house. For food, let the guests bring it or take out all the leftovers. Potted meat, spam or any other high preservative foods are also appropriate. For serving, dont get out your best china. Use up the left over paper goods from grandmas 80th birthday celebration, sisters graduation party, the youngest sons Superman party or whatever odds and ends of paper goods you have around the house. For games she suggested such things as pin-the-tail-on-thedonkey, musical chairs or other old fashioned games. Wonder if anyone remembers the winking game? For what to wear, she suggests they may come in pajamas, leisure suits, jogging clothes or etc. That brought to mind Come as you are parties of another era where you were supposed to come the way you were dressed when you received the invitation. One main suggestion for the ugly Christmas sweater party was to turn the heat down before your guests arrive, because with all those heavy sweaters in a crowded room, things will quickly get steamy. I had a lot of fun reading about tacky parties and ugly Christmas sweater parties. The only drawback now is that I will be selfconscious about wearing my Christmas sweaters this season. Maybe we will turn our church choirs after-the-concert party into an ugly sweater party. Note: How do you make egg bread without any eggs? For my recipe, several asked me, How many eggs? For the recipe I gave, I use four large eggs, or ve or six medium eggs. I goof a lot of times, but I hope no one tried to make my egg bread for Thanksgiving dressing according to my recipe. Thanks for your feedback. HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Are tacky parties a thing of the past? Ugly Christmas sweater parties are becoming the new tacky parties.Wednesday, December 5, 2012Prattler remembers another fallen classmate HURDIS ANGUS BROCK See PRATTLE A5

That is only partially true. Orren, a 1955 graduate of the University of Florida, went to law school at Florida State University after we sold the paper. I graduated from Florida State University in 1959 with a degree in English education, taught high school English for a few years, then stayed home after our son Stephen was born and also worked part-time at the Advertiser for 12 years and then began teaching again when Orren went to law school. So her statement, After college, they both went into their prospective [sic] elds is misleading. Finally, in reference to the article by Editor Randal Seyler: His statement that the newspaper was burned out twice, with no insurance is news to me. I would be interested in knowing his source for this. He also said that in the rst 29 years of its existence, the paper was printed in a dozen or more places. This is simply not true. It was rst printed in Cerro Gordo, then Westville and then Bonifay, where it was continuously printed until the 1960s when my father began to take it to other locations (one I remember was Camilla, Ga.) where it was nancially more pro table to be printed than for him to have to purchase new printing equipment for his business. However, all of the typesetting and layout was done in Bonifay. Mr. Seyler stated that my father ran the newspaper until its sale in 1981 to Larry and Merle Woodham. Again, that is a factual error. As I said earlier, after he had a stroke, my father sold the paper to my husband and me. Orren Smith was the editor and publisher of the paper when it was sold to the Woodhams. I do not want to come across as angry about these mistakes, but I believe in making corrections when mistakes are made, especially about something as dear to me as the Holmes County Advertiser was for so many years of my life. I want its history to be told correctly. The blood, sweat and tears of four generations of my family is tied to this newspaper. Quoting something my grandfather wrote in 1929 on the 36th anniversary of the paper concerning what he felt about the meaning of this local newspaper: It has been to us life, your life and ours, the welfare of which was our supreme concern. Truly, I appreciate your special observance of the 120th anniversary of this newspaper. Small town, locally owned newspapers are slowly becoming a dying breed, Im afraid. So I heartily wish you much success as you strive to continue a great tradition in American journalism.Sincerely,Dianne Williams Smith LETTER from page A4During any free time, they enjoyed hunting and shing and swimming in Pate Pond. Four of the sons from the rst family remained in the area and had farming operations of their own. The younger sons became well-familiar with the hard labor of plowing with a mule, weed pulling by hand and cutting and storing hay for winter feeding, all by hand. As adults, they left the farm for other jobs in a variety of vocations. Hurdis is wellremembered as always having some ready, limited-spending money at recess and lunchtime, which none of the other boys in the class had. Later we were told that he and the other sons had their own sheep in the herd, and at shearing time, when that particular animal was sheared, the individual son knew those proceeds would be kept separate and given to him for his labors. The method of robbing the sheep of the prized wool is a procedure wellremembered by each of the brothers. The Prattler is indebted to Doug Brock, nephew of the deceased, for his comprehensive story on this pioneer family contained in the Heritage of Washington Book, pages 156 and 157. (This book is once again available with a fourth printing. Call the writer at 638-1016 should you be interested in obtaining one.) Hurdis was a classmate of the Prattler, as well as a friend and kinsman. He, along with others in our class, Oakley Hightower and Frederick Kolmetz, along with your writer, seemed to have a special bond of friendship that has endured down through the years. Sadly, we lost Oakley in death too early in his promising career in Floridas Educational System. After U. S. Army service during World War II in Germany and Okinawa, Hurdis enrolled in Floirda State University. His schooling was interrupted when he was called back into the military during the Korean Con ict. His rst marriage was to Dot Lane, and they had three sons: Steve, Stan and Scott. After Dots death, he married Dora Merle Sal Hudson Brock. She along with the sons, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and a host of cousins and other relatives survive Hurdis Brock. Hurdis spent his working years in Okaloosa County, including Crestview and Ft. Walton Beach, where he served on the city council from 1971-1979. He was also active in many other civic and professional organizations. He was employed by Taylor Parts and Supply Company and its successor, CarQuest Auto Parts, until his retirement. Funeral services were held Nov. 20, 2012, at First Baptist Church in Crestview, where he was a member. Included in the service were moving tributes spoken by his three sons, Steve, Stan and Scott, under the heading of Re ections on the life of Brock. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Whitehurst-Powell Funeral Home of Crestivew with interment at Live Oak Park Memorial Cemetery.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, December 5, 2012 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection By JESSICA THERRIAULT Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Ever wonder what digs those cone-shaped indentations in sandy areas of your yard? It is an insect called an ant lion. The ant lion is neither an ant nor a lion. It is a harmless (to people) insect that looks more like a scimovie monster than a real-life backyard critter. It has an appetite to match its ferocious appearance, and its name has everything to do with its favorite meal: ants. There are about 2,000 species of ant lions found throughout the world, mostly in warm climates. Florida has 22 species found throughout the state. Also called a doodlebug when in its immature or larval stage, the ant lion is unique not only because of how it looks and what it eats but also how it catches its prey. As its nickname suggests, this bug doodles, or makes squiggly lines, while moving backward in the sand. Using its jaws to ick away sand, it digs out a cone-shaped pit to trap its prey: ants and other small arthropods that wander too close. It is almost impossible for an ant to climb on the pits slope of loose sand, or to escape before falling to the bottom of the pit to become the ant lions next meal. Sand pits are about the size of a silver dollar (some smaller, some larger, depending on the size of the maker) and an inch or more deep. To view ant lion behavior, search for sandy soil in your yard and look for small, cone-shaped indentations in the soil. You might nd several in one spot. Favorite pit sites are places protected from the rain, such as beneath a raised building, overhanging eaves or other sheltering object. If you can carefully catch an ant, preferably not a re ant (we dont want you to get hurt), drop it into the pit, and the ant lion should react quickly. The ant lion waits for its prey under the soil at the bottom of the pit. If you wish to view one of these insects even closer, scoop it out of the pit with a spoon. Start at one side, scooping under the cone, and lift the entire pit in one scoop. Gently dump the pile of sand onto a white sheet of paper and push the sand until you spot the ant lion. It is camou aged and dif cult to see. If you see it and it appears motionless, just wait; it soon should ip over and try to rebury itself in the sand. Up close, the young ant lion is brown or gray with a plump body, short legs and a large head dominated by spiny jaws called mandibles that stick out. These jaws have tiny, needle-like teeth that inject their soon-to-be meal with venom. They are usually harmless to touch and rarely bite. If you do nd one, it is best not to handle it, and never pick it up with your ngers because its body is soft and you could hurt it. Simply watch it for a while and then place it gently back on the sand where you found it. Being an ant bully is only a part of the ant lions life cycle. This monster-looking insect transforms into a handsome, winged insect similar to a dragon y and spends its adult life ying in forested areas, usually in summer months and at night. FWCWhen magni ed, the ant lion looks more like a scimovie monster. It has jaws with tiny, needle-like teeth that inject their soon-to-be lunch with venom, allowing them to kill and ingest their prey. By BOB WATTENDORFFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission The holiday season is upon us. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or having a few extra days to celebrate with family and friends, coming up with appropriate presents can be a challenge. The key to gift-giving is matching the gift to the person while making sure it is something he or she will enjoy and is not too expensive. If it also helps Mother Nature, it might be the perfect gift. With that in mind, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has several suggestions for your holiday shopping. How about an offering guaranteed to create a happier, healthier and more productive lifestyle? Richard Louv, chairman emeritus of the Children & Nature Network and author of The Nature Principle and Last Child in the Woods, has made a solid case, supported by years of research, that connecting with nature results in those bene ts. Being able to spend time in nature brings people of any age back to the roots connecting them with the nurturing earth. In a time when frantic schedules, enclosed spaces and constant noise tend to drive us a little crazy, it is a real gift to get outdoors and relax with family and friends, get moving to burn off some excess holiday calories and open the door to better communications. To start, how about planning a nature hike or shing trip? Perhaps more than any other form of recreation, shing and boating are critical to the health and well-being of Americas outdoor heritage, according to the Outdoor Foundation. By boat and on land, the rst outdoor experience for many Americans is shing, introducing tens of millions of people each year to the wonders of nature. Fishing also serves as an important bridge and top gateway activity that leads participants to other outdoor passions. So why not invite your family and friends on a fun shing trip, right here in Florida the Fishing Capital of the World (FishingCapital. com)? An annual resident shing license is easy to obtain at License.MyFWC.com, by calling 888FISH-FLORIDA or by visiting a local retailer that sells shing tackle and licenses. A veyear freshwater shing license makes an especially great gift. While you are purchasing the license, you will have the opportunity to make a donation to the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network to help the FWC with creating the next generation that cares. An annual freshwater shing license costs $17. Because the average angler shes 17 times a year (U.S. Census Bureau research) and enjoys four to ve hours on a typical trip, the cost is less than a quarter per hour of fun and healthy recreation. When you purchase a license you also provide a gift to nature and future generations of anglers and outdoor enthusiasts. For 75 years, the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program has guaranteed that shing license fees are protected by law and can only be used for sh and wildlife conservation. Moreover, fees collected by the federal government on shing tackle, pleasure boats and motor boat fuels provide additional funding for recreational shing and conservation. While putting a shing-related gift pack together, you can nd lots of information about shing tips and gear at MyFWC.com/Fishing, along with shing sites and up-to-date forecasts. One of the most fun tips is to have everyone register for Floridas freshwater angler recognition programs, including TrophyCatch and Big Catch, at TrophyCatchFlorida. com. When you register, you become eligible for a Phoenix 619 Pro bass boat and trailer, with a Mercury outboard and Motor Guide trolling motor. That drawing will be in October 2013. However, for the hard-core freshwater anglers who travel from all across the world to sh Floridas fresh water, the ultimate catch is a trophy largemouth bass. The FWC and corporate partners reward anglers for reporting those sh and then releasing them to challenge another angler and to keep the shery thriving. To learn more and keep informed, like us at Facebook.com/TrophyCatchFlorida. Another great gift that will help anglers boast about their sport while supporting conservation is a Go Fishing largemouth bass specialty license plate for their vehicle or trailer. Simply go to Buyaplate.com, or purchase a gift certi cate at an authorized motor vehicle of ce. Gifts for nature lovers Gifts for nature lovers To: OutdoorsmanBY STAN KIRKLANDFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission With our hunting seasons in full swing, there literally are thousands of hunters a eld. Most hunters are law-abiding and never nd themselves in sticky situations. Most hunters also are guided by a sense of hunting ethics. Simply put, hunting ethics involve a pattern of behavior that isnt written as law but is respectful of fellow outdoorsmen and women. Sometimes, hunter ethics arent what they should be, and con icts arise. Case in point: I was speaking with a local duck hunter who hunted Lake Seminole last week. He told me he and two equally hard-core duck hunters met at 3:30 a.m., went out to their favorite location, put out two dozen decoys and concealed their boat in the marsh along the shoreline. Several other boats and duck hunters soon arrived, and one group put out decoys and set up within 100 yards of the rst hunters, despite the rst group shining a light and asking them to give them some space. To add insult to injury, the late-arriving hunters shot at ducks out of range at daylight, diminishing anyone elses chances for success. A similar situation we sometimes hear about involves those who hunt wild turkeys on public or private lands. Again, some folks hunt near another hunter, especially when one hunter is entrenched long before the other person arrives on the scene. In both situations, a sense of etiquette was lost and, instead of having an enjoyable relaxing, quality time outdoors, tempers ared and people left unhappy. Sometimes a sense of ethics is lost when shing, as well. This summer I spoke to an angler who was shing on a wreck several miles off the Bay County coast when a dive boat arrived and several divers with spear guns descended into the depths. The sherman was beyond livid. What these situations, and a thousand other similar ones in the outdoors, should remind us is to keep in mind the Golden Rule and treat others a eld the way we want to be treated. If that happens, we will all be happier. Practice the Golden Rule while outdoors Ferocious ant lion is an ant bully

LAS VEGAS (AP) If his goal was to keep all of NASCAR on its toes during Champions Week, Brad Keselowski played it perfectly. He was brash and bold and changed nothing about his personality as he seamlessly navigated press events, cocktail receptions, sponsor dinners and socializing. He burned the candle at both ends in Las Vegas, trying hard to hold his own with veteran drivers who tried but failed to rattle him with some lighthearted hazing. Keselowski was like the pesky kid brother nobody wanted around, and he seemed to love playing the part. Until it was time to be the Sprint Cup champion. Keselowski of cially accepted his new title with an unscripted speech that impressed most everyone in the crowd of 1,500 in the ballroom of the Wynn Las Vegas Resort. He refused to write a speech ahead of time, which had NASCAR of cials holding their breath for most of the 12 minutes Keselowski spoke. In going up to the podium with no notes loaded into the TelePrompTer, Keselowski joined Jimmie Johnson as the only two drivers in the last decade to go off-the-cuff in their championship speeches. Johnson only did it once, after his fth title in 2010. The highlight of Keselowskis speech was the close, in which it became clear how much he appreciates his new role as champion. As we look into I hope as a sport we can continue to nd common ground to unify, Keselowski said. We have some of the smartest people that can solve any problem. As a champion, I want to be your leader, and I want to help you make it happen. His remarks come with NASCAR down to roughly eight weeks to nalize development on its 2013 car, which the industry is counting on to improve the racing. As attendance and television ratings continue to slip, the actual on-track product is under heavy scrutiny and the garage seems divided as to how it can be improved. At 28, Keselowski is the eighthyoungest champion in Cup history and he claimed his title in just his third full season. But he grew up in a racing family and has a strong desire to do his part to help motorsports succeed. And as a driver for Roger Penske, the team owner who is deeply committed to both NASCAR and the struggling IndyCar Series, Keselowski understands the challenges currently facing American auto racing. Thats what he meant, he said after Friday nights speech, when he called for unity. You look at IndyCar and the things they are ghting, it shows how you can take a series with great action, great people and (throw) it all away when you dont work together, Keselowski said. I feel like in our series, we have the potential to be stronger than what we are if we work together. I want to be a part of that, to work with others and help move this sport forward and make it as strong as we can be. It was a humble side of Keselowski that he rarely shows, partly because he likes to be different and enjoys keeping everyone guessing. Its part of a game Keselowski is seemingly playing at times as he tries to beat his competitors both on and off the track. Three-time champion Tony Stewart seems wise to Keselowskis act, noting in his speech that the late NASCAR spokesman Jim Hunter would have really enjoyed Keselowski if hed gotten a chance to know the driver. Hunter enjoyed edgy and colorful drivers, and grew close to Stewart at a time when Stewart was sparring with most NASCAR of cials. I dont think Brad has learned to be cautious yet, Stewart said. Hopefully that wont bite him like it has a lot of drivers in the past. But its refreshing. Its nice to see somebody that just speaks from the heart and isnt guarded when he speaks. Thats the way all of us should be. Four-time champion Jeff Gordon agreed Keselowski is a bit of a throwback, and shouldnt change. Too polished is sometimes not good, either, Gordon said. Youve got to be who you are and let that shine. Thats what I see in him. There doesnt seem like theres much fazing him or changing him, at least not what Ive seen so far, so I dont anticipate it happening. Its worked for Keselowski, who went from a development driver in the Hendrick Motorsports system quickly earning a reputation as a wild child with no regard for others to the top of the sport in a little over three years. Hes done it by settling into a home with Penske, learning how to be a team leader and getting comfortable in his own skin. The payoff was a Nationwide Series championship in 2010 with crew chief Paul Wolfe, the rst of cial NASCAR championship for Penske, and then a long-term contract extension that was announced a year ago for Keselowski and Wolfe. Then the duo teamed together this season to win ve races two in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship and bring Penske Racing its rst Cup title 40 years after Penske rst entered NASCAR. It carried a $5,728,405 bonus from series sponsor Sprint that pushed the No. 2 teams season winnings to $12,106,255. More importantly, it provided credibility to a voice Keselowski is unafraid to use. To see Brad and how he is going to represent the sport probably means the most to me because hes loyal, Penske said. I think what you see is what you get. Hes a high-integrity guy, hes a hard worker and hes a big team player.

By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com BRISTOL Liberty County provided the shovel, Northview dug the hole. The Chiefs jumped on early Bulldogs miscues and cruised to a 48-14 victory in a Class 1A state football semi nal on Friday. Brannon Freeman rushed for 148 yards and LaMikal Kyles 116, and they combined for ve touchdowns in the rout. Northviews defense also held down Liberty County, and the Bulldogs continued to stunt their progress with key penalties. Northview (10-3) moved on to its rst state nal to face the winner of Trenton-Newberry in Orlando on Friday. The Chiefs survived their rst state semi nal after falling short at the same point in each of the past two seasons. Liberty County (10-3) last advanced to the state nal in 1969 and will have to wait at least another year to end the drought. Liberty County coach Grant Grantham stated the obvious earlier in the week, that the Bulldogs would need to play cleanly to have a shot to win. They didnt and couldnt get untracked to make a dent in the de cit. We didnt start off well or like we needed to, Grantham said. They had been turning the ball over lately but didnt tonight. We did and it changed the game. Northview scored ve plays after Liberty County fumbled away the opening kickoff return. Freeman capped the drive with a 2-yard run and his rst score of the rst half. Liberty County, which had a nine-game winning streak snapped, punted on its next series, but the ball drifted out of bounds after only 13 yards. Northview took over at its 46 and scored seven plays later on a 2-yard run by Kyles, who also scored twice in the rst half. The Bulldogs tried to mount answers and had two manageable fourth-down tries on two drives. However, illegal procedure penalties on each pushed them into fourth-and-10 each time, and Liberty County decided to punt on one possession and turned the ball over on downs on the second. Northview racked up 228 yards and a 28-0 halftime lead. Liberty County was held to 94 yards in the rst half. The Bulldogs deepest penetration was the Chiefs 20 on a possession that ended with an interception before Alex Marlowe nally put Liberty County on the scoredboard with a 50yard run late in the third quarter. Marlowe, one of 12 seniors, nished with 113 yards rushing and grabbed two receptions for 47 to lead Liberty County. Dustin Watson, also a senior, was 3 of 13 for 59 yards while adding a touchdown and an interception. The group of seniors and the rest of the team helped Liberty County nish with one of its best seasons since previously advancing to the state semis in 1998. This group won 38 games in four years, Grantham said. They are a ne group of kids.

These emotions, which are closely natural mechanisms for self-preservation. It is clearly a good thing to feel fear when in the presence of real danger or anger. Fear and anger are a bit like warning bells or alarms, telling us that we need to and theres no real danger. Some politicians and certain media outlets are good at stoking fear and anger, and seem bent on keeping us in a perpetual state of fear and anger. If a tornado is heading your way, its probably appropriate to be fearful (and to get in the basement), but should we really be angry or fearful about national or international politics? We should not be passively resigned in the face of politics. People should be informed and get involved in local, state and national politics, but we need not get overly disturbed about it. The real problem with all of the fear and anger generated these days is how unproductive and debilitating it is. It keeps the talking heads happy, but it leaves the rest of us fearful, angry, and powerless to do much about it. So, perhaps we should keep our heads calm and really need it. BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser This Message Courtesy ofHe who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. R.S.V. Proverbs 16:32 By THE REV. JAMES L. SNYDER, D.LITTI will confess right up front to a certain degree of confusion. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage will corroborate this confession. So many things confuse me; I am not sure where to begin, and once I begin, where in the world will it stop? I have been married for over 41 years but I must confess, not to the same woman. Oh yes, it is the same woman with the same name but it is not the same woman I married 41 years ago. Where is that young woman I married? When rst married, I thought I knew everything there was to know about women and wives in particular. I do not know if it is the ensuing years but I am rather confused about this whole matter of being married. I suppose that is the mystery of romance. If you ever gure it out it loses its charm. Romance without charm is just an old man and an old woman who have lived together for 41 years. That is just one area of confusion. I harbor no aspiration of unconfusing my level of confusion in that area. There are other areas I could work on that might be a little more productive in this regard. An area particularly that has me greatly confused is the Christmas season with all the Christmas decorations including the ominous Christmas tree. Oh, how I love that old Christmas tree and decorating it and celebrating the whole Christmas spirit. What has been confusing me for the last several years is this uncertainty about the season. Some people do not want to call it the Christmas season; rather they refer to it as the holiday season. What I want to know is, what holiday are we celebrating in December? I know the holiday we celebrate in November, and the other holidays sprinkled throughout the year. In July, for example, nobody calls it a holiday parade. It is the Fourth of July parade, for Petes sake! In February, nobody calls it a holiday banquet. It is a Valentines banquet. Just so everybody knows, nobody will catch me singing a holiday carol. I suppose with all the holidays in this country throughout the year it would be simpler just to call everything a holiday. That would simplify things and help those who cannot keep up with the calendar. I am all for that. It seems the only squabbling that goes on is during the month of December. Actually, the squabbling begins before our turkey dinner has nished digesting. Maybe some people get too much turkey in their system and it clouds their thinking. All they have to do is squabble about something and so the only thing in front of them is the Christmas season. I get that. What I do not get is the level of anger directed in this direction. It would seem that the Christmas season offers a huge threat to our society. We cannot call our Christmas tree a Christmas tree; it has to be called a holiday tree. Everybody knows, the word Christmas tree is some kind of code inviting disaster on our society. I have never heard anybody de ne or describe what that disaster would look like. What amazes me is simply that this is a huge issue in some peoples minds. Nothing is more dangerous to society than this. The word Christmas carries with it more danger to our society than the ominous nancial cliff we are facing, the threat of terrorism in our own country and Lindsay Lohan at 4 a.m. What is more confusing to me is that these people who are trying to protect our society from anything religious wants to substitute the word Christmas for the word holiday. It just shows the level of education in our country has not kept up with the times. I know it has been a long time since I have been in school, but I do know that certain words have certain de nitions. Do the people who object to anything religious understand that the word holiday comes from the phrase holy day? I am not a PhD but I do know that the phrase holy day has religious roots. So, I am really confused along this line. On the one hand, we are not to use the word Christmas because of its religious connotations. At the same time, we are supposed to use the word holiday which in every dictionary in the land means holy day. I could be corrected along this line, but in my thinking the phrase, holy day has some very distinct religious roots. When I hear somebody complaining along this line, and they do it so vehemently, I have a question as to their sanity. It does not make sense to me. Christmas is a holy day but we are not allowed to think of it as a holy day just use the term holiday. Now I am really confused. Is it a holiday or a holy day? Is it sacred or is it secular? What holiday does a holiday tree really celebrate? I like what the apostle Paul wrote, Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days (Colossians 2:16 KJV). I will not allow any mans objections affect my celebration of the Christmas season. To quote from a great secular classic, God bless us, everyone. The Rev. James L.

I was born and raised just two miles from Veterans Memorial Park. I am blessed to have great parents, Phillip and Janice Music, a loving wife, Angela, and four wonderful children, Matthew, Cassidy, Daniel and Zackary. I enlisted in the Army National Guard in Bonifay on my 18th birthday. I didnt join for the bene ts; I joined to help Americans in need. I get that from my father. I always admired the soldiers who assisted the citizens during times of need such as hurricanes and oods. I was called to active duty on Dec. 26, 2002. My unit, Charlie Company 3rd 124 INF, was sent to Kuwait for the invasion of Iraq. Again in 2010 we were activated for another tour of Operation Iraqi Freedom. And that brings me to today. When I was asked to speak at Veterans Park on Veterans Day, I was honored. Veterans Day is set aside to remember every man and woman who has taken up arms to defend our country. On Veterans Day, we gave honor to every soldier, sailor, airman, Marine and Coast Guardsman who gave some of the best years of their lives to the service of the United States and stood ready to give life itself on our behalf. When we observed Veterans Day, we were thinking of our veterans of past wars and con icts World War II, The Korean War, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, The Gulf War, Iraq and Afghanistan. We also remember our fellow Americans last seen on duty, whose fate is still undetermined. We will not rest until all Americans are accounted for. On Veterans Day, we are thinking of tomorrows veterans that are in combat in Afghanistan this hour. They are making us proud. We are also thinking of the men and women who did not live to be called veterans. Our whole nation honors every patriot who placed duty and honor before their own lives. They gave us every day that we live in freedom. I would like to also recognize all the spouses of our veterans, who are the backbone of all soldiers, whose support from letters, care packages, phone calls and emails made our time away from our families a little less painful. A true soldier ghts not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him. I encourage everyone to honor our veterans and say Thank you. Honor our veterans and say Thank youPHOTOS SPECIAL TO EXTRA
