An FDOT of cial also discussed County 388, and said no funding is in place to expand the road, but it is being studied. Gaetz, R-Niceville, delivered the news as part of a three-stop barnstorming tour across the Panhandle, promoting projects previously announced in FDOTs veyear plan. He started the day at the Bay County Public Library, accompanied by state Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, state Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, and state Rep. Jimmy Patronis, RPanama City. The state of Florida is today stepping up to be a bigger partner and a much better partner in building a transportation infrastructure that will help create jobs for Northwest Florida, the Florida Senate president told a gathering of local of cials and residents. Gaetz said $974 million in state funding will ow to Northwest Florida for transportation, rail, port and bridge projects in the next four years. Widening State 79 is one of those projects. North of Ebro, State 79 narrows Senator: State 79 expansion to nish in 2017 Gaetz, Coley visit Holmes By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Rep. Marti Coley and Sen. Don Gaetz, members of state legislative delegation representing Northwest Florida, held a public hearing at the Holmes County School District Of ce on Jan. 29 to hear comments on proposals for the 2013 legislative session. Gaetz said he and Coley were seeking Holmes County-speci c bills. There have been no local bills that have been proposed by any local government, any local group, local individual or family, he said. Subsequently there will be no local bills affecting Holmes County proposed for 2013 session. The second reason, Gaetz said, was to hear from the people of Holmes County. There will be a lot of issues to come before the legislature, like they do every year, Gaetz said. There are over 3,000 bills that get introduced in the legislative session and, with Gods Man cleared of 2011 attempted murder charge By RANDAL SEYLER 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Tears and solemn hugs set the mood at the Washington County Courthouse when Lawrence Brown was found not guilty of attempted murder in the second degree in the Dec. 31, 2011, stabbing of Micah Taylor. Brown, 61, a Holmes County resident, was accused of stabbing Taylor multiple times after an altercation at the Thirsty Turtle, a Washington County bar near Caryville. The jury of two men and four women took about 90 minutes to come to a verdict. The maximum sentence for second-degree attempted murder, a second-degree felony, is 15 years, said Assistant State Attorney Shalla Jefcoat, the prosecutor in the Brown trial. The jury could have found Brown guilty of lesser charges such as attempted murder in the third degree or aggravated assault, but they returned a not guilty verdict instead. Taylor eventually recovered from the attack and was one of the prosecutions witnesses. Brown did not testify during the trial. I want to thank you for the way you conducted yourself in court, and in total, 14th Judicial District Court Judge Chris Patterson, who presided over the three-day trial, told Brown. I appreciate the way you conducted yourself and the way the gallery conducted themselves during the trial. Dozens of Browns relatives lled half the courtrooms benches, and after the verdict was read, a steady line of teary-eyed friends and relatives hugged Brown and congratulated him. Lawrence Brown, along with Caleb Brown and Daniel Brown, From Staff Reports BONIFAY The Holmes County Health Department and Doctors Memorial Hospital partnered to promote Heart Health Awareness with a Heart Awareness Walk that was held at Doctors Memorial Hospital on Friday, Feb. 1. Feb. 1 is the 10-year anniversary of National Wear Red Day, endorsed by the American Heart Association and the Go Red for Women Campaign. Holmes Countys health care organizations encourage everyone to wear red Feb. 1 in support of cardiovascular disease awareness. Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of American men and women. CVD is responsible for more deaths in women than the next four causes combined, including all forms of cancers. The walk was free, and the community was invited to participate. Walkers were encouraged to bring a hearthealthy lunch and commit to walking at least four laps. The rst 100 participants received free gifts and educational resources concerning heart healthy exercises, nutrition and more.

MARRIAGES No marriages were recorded. DIVORCES David Wayne Phillips and Stacey Marie Phillips to two lanes, but the $139 million project will add two more lanes and a median, Gaetz said. That stretch of road runs through Holmes and Washington counties. Gaetz also said $44.9 million will go toward widening State 77, from the Bay County line to Interstate 10. The project is divided into six segments, totaling 23.5 miles, but no funding is in place for construction costs; the allocated money will be used for design and right-of-way acquisition. And, Gaetz said, $85 million will be used for an elevated overpass a yover at the U.S. 98 and 23rd Street intersection. The project should be nished in 2015. FDOT District 3 Secretary Tommy Bar eld said the contract for the State 79 project will be executed this month. That contract is ready to go. Its been advertised. Anderson Columbia was the low bidder, he said. Though the improvements will stop at Interstate 10, FDOT plans to four-lane State 79 to the Alabama border. The state will spend $5.05 million in 2017 to study that expansion. COUNTY 388 Bar eld also addressed County 388. He said the previous district secretary committed to take ownership of the road from the county, but that hasnt happened. Nevertheless, he said it will be done eventually. Were trying to work out, with the county all the details, and let me assure you that we are going to follow through on our commitment as an agency, he said. Bar eld said County 388 is being reviewed in a project development and environmental study; FDOT is looking at expanding it to four lanes. He said this would be done in phases; likely the rst phase would be from Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport entrance to State 79. No construction funds are in place. As soon as we get through with (the study), well know more about the cost; well know more about the right-of-way acquisition, he said. mercy, only 10 percent of them will go on to become law. Most of the rest of them are some pretty dumb ideas. One of the most important aspects of visiting constituents, Gaetz said, is to get an accurate read on public input. So were here today to listen to your concerns, your questions, your insights and help inform us as we grow in the House and in the Senate, he said. Representative Coley, were very fortunate to have her as our state representative in this area. She is the speaker pro-tem elected by the House of Representatives to be the No. 2 person in the House, working very closely with the speaker in the Senate agenda and moving the House of Representatives forward. The rst to speak was Holmes County resident Joe Kegan. I would like to improve the support of the freedom of unwarranted surveillance act, Kegan said. It is a bill to protect individual privacy against unwarranted governmental intrusion through the use of the unmanned aerial vehicles commonly called drones, and for other purposes. Next to speak was Holmes County Supervisor of Elections Debbie Wilcox Morris. After the 2012 elections, with issues that were experienced, it seems throughout the state theres going to be a review of the election laws again, and I would just ask that you, after looking at early voting, that you would give the supervisors of elections more exibility in where we put up early voting, Morris said. ... the law says we shall have it in our of ce. We have a very small elections of ce, and early voting went well for us, but I think we would be able to better serve our voters if we were able to have it maybe at the ag center so we could have ample parking and more space. She requested the law state early voting may be held at the supervisor of elections of ce. There are some counties that have large supervisor of elections of ces and can accommodate; however, in Holmes County, we do not have a large ofce, she said. Also in reference to electronic poll books, I know that after the 2010 elections we had an issue with the electronic poll books. That is so ef cient for our voters, and the only information that a poll worker will see is the same thing they would see if they were using a paper precinct register. Morris said it was a time saver and reduced the chances of error. Theyre not having to ip through pages to nd that voters name. They dont have to worry about them accidentally signing on the incorrect line, and when someone else comes in and it shows that theyve already voted, then they have an issue, she said. With the electronic precinct registers, our data is updated in real time. I hope if this issue comes up again that the legislature will support it. Morris said she had to retrain poll workers in address veri cation. They can no longer ask you if you still live at 116 Redwood Drive, and that concerns me, especially now that we have a split in one of our precincts with the redistricting, she said. We have a district that was split into two congressional districts, and if they cant make sure that the voters address is correct, they could be issued an incorrect ballot, and it could impact the outcome of that election. She said the last issue she had was referendum ballots. The 11 constitutional amendments this time, I think, was what created a lot of the issues throughout the state with long lines, Morris said. Our voters did an excellent job educating themselves. I think we had more people vote on those amendments this time than weve ever had, but we had a two-page ballot, front and back, and fortunately everything went well for us. She said she felt sympathy for those counties where the supervisors of elections were slammed for their extensive lines. I dont think it was a fault of theirs, she said. They didnt have adequate early voting locations that they could choose to use, and then there was the length of the ballot. It went well here because voters educated themselves and came prepared for the most part. She said with the extension of the early voting days, the only thing was to do away with the Sunday before Election Day because thats the day her of ce usually delivers its electronic equipment. It will give us one day to go out and set everything up, she said. We dont have that many people here that vote on Sunday, so for us it would be better if we had that extra time to make sure everything is set up and ready. Both Gaetz and Coley encouraged all those who wish to contact them with questions, comments or concerns to nd their contact information at www. senate.gov. GAETZ, COLEY from page A1 SEN.

Expires 02/28/2013 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Regional Director of Resource De velopment at United Way of Northwest Florida Ron Sharpe visited the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners during their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, Jan. 29. Im looking to hold United Way campaigns throughout Holmes County to raise awareness to the services provided in Holm es County. There are over 31 agencies that are avail able to assist the residents of Holmes County like Life Management, Tri County Community Council, Sharpe said. He said it was difcult for people to become more knowledgeable about most of those agencies because they werent stationed in Holmes County. Even though they are located in Panama City, its the residents of Holmes County that receive the help, he said. One ofce in Panama City was able to help over 50,000 people. Some of those people were from Holmes County. Ten calls a day are made from people who need help with their power bills, he said. 95 cents of every dol lar remains local, Sharpe said. A little bit out of each pay roll helps immensely, and that money can go to the agency of your choice. A lot of that is possible because the United Way pulls resources from both state and federal. When someone gives to United Way over the course of a year it has a large im pact, he said. When it comes to United Way, its like a grant and someone, not a paid staff member but someone within your community, will look at the dollars. They will look at the grant request, and our agencies will ll out an ap plication, a grant applica tion. They tell us how much we need, how theyre going to use the money and that whole process. For Holmes County, those individuals are Julia Bullington with the Hol mes County Chamber of Commerce, Melissa Wil lard with Regions Bank, Fran Haithcoat with Wells Fargo and Brenda Blitch from Doctors Memorial Hospital. The money given through donations is matched and increased because of grant matches, Sharpe said. For example, Life Man agement has a foster care adoption program and $25 is given for every dollar donated, he said. Meals on Wheels gets $9 for every dollar and the Early Learn ing Coalition that funds daycare centers in Holmes County gets $17 for every dollar donated. The Red Cross has helped ve peo ple over this winter after loosing everything due to house res and they dont get any funding aside from agencies like ours. Commissioner David Whitaker asked how does the United Way keep peo ple from abusing these services. Weve learned a lot from past disasters, Sharpe said. We have a system set up that keeps people from double-dipping, so to speak, and all agencies have to be reviewed and audited on an annual basis. Its all about accountability. Sharpe said one-time donations can be made on line, and you can use cash, check, credit card or payroll deductions for donating. Payroll deduction is the strength of United Way because youll never miss a dollar out of each pay check, Sharpe said. One of the most recent successes was Doctors Me morial Hospital, he said. Doctors Memorial Hospital had never done anything like this before, but Blitch said she was interested in bringing it to her staff and giving it a shot, he said. The rst year they raised $2,500 and last year they raised $3,330. They saw the needs in their community and decided to make a difference in their community. Chair Monty Merchant said that he has seen United Way successfully raise money for local agen cies through a previous employer. This is a good opportu nity to give to a local agen cy and make a difference in our community, Whitaker said. Sharpe added that Cov enant Hospice was also an agency that received grant money from every dollar raised. A lot of times people cant afford these servic es, and heaven forbid you should need it, but theyd never turn you away, he said. Were in challenging times. We just need to raise awareness that these agen cies are out there to help in these trying times of eco nomic crisis. BOCC approved Com missioner Bobby Sasnetts requested to pay a local beaver hunter for his ser vices, saying he was charg ing the county $480 at a rate of $30 per beaver. I dont know how much of a problem were having with these beavers, but if killing them helps then we should see about it, Sas nett said. County employee Eddie Whitehurst veried that the beavers in Holmes County are an issue and one that the county should take note of because theyve had the job of cleaning out the bea ver dams, but soon their work crew will be reduced. Commissioner Bill Par ish suggested going out to bid if they nd that this service is benecial to the county, and Whitehurst brought before the BOCC an estimate to cover the new fuel tankards at Dis tricts 3 and 4 Road Yard. Because of the newer and bigger fuel tankards, were needing something bigger to cover them from the weather, Whitehurst said. BOCC agreed to table the matter until Whitehu rst found a cheaper means of covering the tankards. BOCC approved of accepting two vehicles handed down from the Tri County Community Coun cil for the Holmes County Public Library and the road department. Weve never had a ve hicle for the library, said Susan Harris from the HCPL. Weve been striv ing for a vehicle to take to the rural areas. We want to provide what services we have in the library, such as the Internet, to those areas who cant afford to make it to the library. BOCC approved get ting an assessment and a recommendation for what should be done with faulty air conditioning unit at the Holmes County Agricultur al building. BOCC approved of The Northwest Florida Re gional Planning to continue offering the State Housing Initiatives Partnership pro gram after receiving word that program has received funding for the new year. BOCC approved Tri County Community Council representative Joel Pauls request for TCCC to submit a Transportation Service Development Grant. The Department of Transportation has a grant available to improve our transportation programs, Paul said. For us, it has already been approved. We just need to show the ap proval of the board. Well be using it to update our software for better schedul ing, mapping, routes, GPS, etc. County Engineer Cliff Knauer approached the board to remind them about deadlines for the Florida Boating Improvement Pro gram grant. One of our former com missioners, Jim King, was trying to push for a boat ramp at the Choctawhatchee River in Holmes County on the west end of Highway 90, Knauer said. Because it didnt score high enough, we werent able to get the grant. First of all, we couldnt get a letter from the DOT to allow access through their right-of-way, and second of all, everyone who submitted an applica tion and was accepted was fully prepared beforehand with survey analyses, etc. We didnt have any sur veying or impact studies, Knauer said. We can get those without any prob lem, it just takes time. So if anyone has any boat ramp, parking lot or restroom is sues, weve got to get on it soon so we can get what we need for this grant. Parish asked County At torney Jeff Goodman what the status was for the Hol mes County Comprehen sion Plan. Goodman said the coun ty had been through the painstaking process of up dating the Comprehensive Plan to meet legislative requirements, and now all that was required was to see if they are still in com pliance and if they want to update their Evaluation and Appraisal Report. Parish also said that there are issues with ero sion on North and South Ride. Knauer agreed to review the plan with Parish. Were ready when you are, said Knauer. Merchant told the board a local church that is a building a new sanctuary approached him about waiving the building fee. The board members agreed it wasnt a good idea to waive the fees. If we waive it for one, well have to waive it for all, said Williams. Even I had to tell the same thing to my church when they asked. BOCC approved of con sent items minutes for January 8, 2013, Workshop & Regular Session, Real Property Lease with Reba Sconiers for District 1 Road Yard, Travel Request for Wanda Stafford to go to the Annual Governors Hurricane Conference and Miscellaneous Appropria tions Agreement with the Council on Aging. The next regularly scheduled HC BOCC meet ing is set for 9 a.m. on Tues day, Feb. 12 at the Holmes County BOCC Chamber located behind the Holmes County Courthouse. United Way rep visits Holmes BOCC

Decorative, Decorative, As always, Free Estimates. With the threat of tornadoes in neighboring Alabama and Georgia, some of our transplanted Bonifay children have come to understand the sound of the familiar mill whistle that we hear every day at noon to have a more urgent meaning. Former residents David and Erin (Brooks) Lauen and Stephanie (Lauen) Ford live with their families in Atlanta. This past week they heard sirens several times sending school children with their teachers to storm shelters. Their mother, Christine Lauen, said Bonifay needs a dangerous-storm warning system. Hazel, you should write an article about that. Well, I dont editorialize much so this is not a suggestion that our city fathers start a warning system. That doesnt t into my writing style. I would assume each school has some sort of storm drill just as they do re drills. I remember when I was teaching and the sky was threatening, some kids would become quite worried. I gave them the instructions even though we didnt have a sustained siren sound. Move to the inside wall. Get on your knees with your hands and arms over your head. And while you are down there, pray that God will keep the storm up in the sky. I am fully con dent that He is able to do that. But the idea of a siren as a severe weather-warning device brought to mind our noon mill whistle, which blows at noon every day. To those of us who live here, it is a sound to which we are long accustomed. But for newcomers to our area, it sometimes causes alarm. When our former youth minister and his bride, Jason and Nicole Stanland, moved here a couple of years ago, they were getting settled into their home about a block from First Baptist Church. When the noon mill whistle sounded, thinking it was surely warning of some impending disaster, they were almost panic-stricken. They had no knowledge of what the disaster might be nor how they were to respond to the warning. They soon became accustomed, however, to that signal telling Bonifay folk, Its time for lunch. Many ask about the history of the whistle. I cant be sure, but Ive always thought it was a carry-over from the days in the 1940s and 50s when the Bonifay Heading Company employed many Bonifay and surrounding area citizens. The header mill as it was locally called was located near where Jerkins Inc. is now located. They made wooden barrelheads (covers) that were used mainly in the naval stores industry. Much of their equipment was powered by steam produced by burning the wood byproducts from the shaping of the circular barrelheads. Ray Brooks, who lived near the mill as a child where both his parents worked, said the ash from the burning process often soiled the clothes, which his mother and sisters hung outdoors to dry. The steam produced by the furnace also powered the mill whistle. When we lived in town in the early 1950s, it sounded at noon to signal lunch time and again at 5 p.m. to signal quitting time. If there was one in the morning to signal starting time or at 1 p.m. to signal go back to work time, I dont recall. I actually think there was a 1 p.m. whistle and perhaps a 7 p.m. one. Ray says the re whistle that blows today was originally located atop what was Red Alfords Western Auto Store next door to Progressive Realty on Waukesha Street. I believe it is now located atop the water tank behind the Middle School Gym atop McKinnon Hill. It was when I was teaching there. I had always assumed the noon whistle was set on a timer, but I called Elois Bradshaw who works at Bonifay City Hall. She said, No. We ring it by hand. The job is assigned to Sabrina Peters, but when she has to go and work at the re station, either Elois, Frances Kline, Betty Tadlock or City Clerk Jeri Gibson ring it. I suppose one of them is also assigned to push the button for the start of parades. Many visitors and newcomers to our town have puzzled over the re alarm sounding at noon. Now you know the origin. In a future article, I will write more of the history of the Bonifay Heading Company. HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison The mill whistle still sounds at noon On Friday, Jan. 18, my sister Muriel Wells Turner, informed me in a telephone conversation that the landmark building, known as David Cooks store, on Highway 79 south of Bonifay, had been reduced to rubble by the wrecking crew assigned to remove it from the right of way, required for further widening of the road leading to the Bay County Gulf Beaches. Ironically, Muriels Vernon High School classmate of 1961, Sandra Hightower Miller, had the responsibility of passing this sad message to our sister. Sandra also knew the history of Muriels two grown daughters, Maria and Meredith, depending upon a visit for candy as children to Davids Store. Their grandfather, Hugh Wells, whom they affectionately called Pa, delighted in taking them and other grandchildren for the special treat. The word irony is used because Sandras mother, Fannie Lou Simmons Hightower, has already witnessed her Vernon home, falling victim to demolition by the house wreckers ball. Her historic home was also acquired by the state upon determining that it was also in the path of the highways widening project through the town of Vernon. Further signi cance to the Hightowers home removal is the fact that Fannie Lou was reared in the home as the daughter of Frederick Houston (Fred) Simmons and Jessie Lee Spencer Simmons. She was their only child. Upon marrying Brown Doyle Hightower on August 10, 1939, an arrangement developed that allowed the newly weds to become the owners of the old home place where they continued to live their lives together. It was in this location that the couple reared their two daughters, Linda and Sandra. Brown Hightowers lifetime job was in road construction, and maybe this fact lessened the impact on family members who saw the necessity of surrendering the family home to the massive road improvement project. The David Cook combination home and business was built long after the Simmons/ Hightower edi ce, but its strategic location resulted in it becoming somewhat of a beacon in the community. Floyd Cook, a nephew of David, wrote the David and Carolyn Mercer Cook story for the 2006 Heritage of Washington County Book. Floyd listed Davids parents as Arthur Bennett Cook and Vera Mae Kelly Cook. School for David included Union Hill, Vernon High School and Holmes County High School, where he played football. He served in the U.S. Army during World War II, and upon discharge from the service, he soon married Carrie Hortense (Carolyn) Mercer Cook. Their two sons are Wallace and Terry Cook. The combination country grocery store/ home also later became a lling station and feed store. The latter also served as a voting precinct for many years. David was a longtime school bus driver, driving a bus to Vernon High School until retirement. Residents of the area patronized the business faithfully and also relied on the stalwarts, David and Carolyn, to provide directions to travelers and strangers who had previously been told to watch for David Cooks Store for instructions, should they be unable to nd a particular home, church or other location in that community. James W. (Bill) Lee, who was reared practically on the Holmes-Washington county line, is a longtime career employee of the Washington County School System.

Bills writing pointed out the convenience of the store whether it was to stop by for the traditional Moon Pie and an R.C. Cola while taking a break form hauling hay or to purchase your sh bait for a relaxing day of shing when heading to the lakes and the Choctawhatchee River located at Hinson Cross Roads. Bills writing mentioned David Cooks store as the place to gain information as to the happenings going on in the area. Just hang around the store for a few minutes and you could learn who was sick, where the next hog killing would be going on and who had fresh turnips or new potatoes ready to dig. Candidates for public of ce knew that the country stores in the rural area were a Mecca for people to assemble and an excellent place to see the most voters by timing your visits around noontime or late in the afternoons. Before the days of modern radio communications in law enforcement, Ruth Bush, longtime employee of the sheriffs department, reports of depending on the public telephones installed in the country stores to keep in touch with the deputies, whether it be in New Hope, Ebro, Greenhead or Millers Ferry. In 1976, Jim and Jesses bluegrass rendition of the John Prine protest song, Paradise, where the lyrics objection to strip mining is outlined in the chorus to the lengthy and beautiful version of the song: Daddy wont you take me back to Mullenberg County, down by the Green River where paradise lay? Im sorry my son, but youre too late in asking, Mr. Peabodys Coal Train done hauled it away. In other verses, a line is used that attributes strip mining operations to brought it all down to the progress of man. Maybe road and bridge building and others acts requiring destruction and disruption of status quo can be justi ed by attributing is all to the progress of man. See you all next week.

Taylor and Dumas began ghting, with Dumas punching Taylor in the face and the couple biting each other. The Browns got involved with the ght. At one point, Washington County sheriffs deputies arrived to investigate reports of a loud argument, but no one was arrested. According to testimony, after the Browns squared off with Taylor, they got into their vehicle and left with the girls. About 3:30 a.m. Jan. 1, 2012, Taylors uncle Randall Taylor called 911 to report the stabbing. Jefcoat told the jurors in her closing arguments that Lawrence Brown had stabbed Taylor from behind while Taylor fought with Caleb Brown. Defense Attorney David Thomas of DeFuniak Springs noted during closing arguments that there were no witnesses to the stabbing, with Taylor testifying that he couldnt see who was stabbing him, but he identi ed the stabber as Lawrence Brown based on the shape of his assailants body and his voice. Dumas testi ed that Taylor was madder than she had ever seen him that evening and that Taylor was known for carrying a knife similar to a box opener. No knives were recovered at the crime scene, nor were any submitted into evidence, Thomas said. Thomas also pointed to discrepancies in Taylors statements to police, lawyers and his doctor that suggest Taylor was dishonest in his claim that Lawrence Brown stabbed him. He claims he remembers better now than he did when the incident occurred, Thomas said. There was nothing in his injuries that would have affected his memory.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, February 6, 2013 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section The Silver Hook has been a three-year winter project for Harold Staples. He has kept the boat under a 30-foot by 60-foot carport in his backyard. By TINA HARBUCK 654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com He was just a teenager when he rst helped his dad build a shing boat, and now at age 63 hes still building boats in his Destin backyard. Im addicted to it, said Capt. Harold Staples, who has been building the 36-footer in his backyard on Stahlman Avenue for the past three years. Some people are addicted to some things, mine is the water and being around boats its my passion. Staples hopes to launch his new boat, tagged the Silver Hook after his fathers last boat, sometime next week. All thats left to do is paint the bottom and nish the wiring, Staples said. Its a big thing when you put it in the water and see it oating out there. Then you get on it and make it go. When she hits the water, the Silver Hook will be a berglass, six-passenger charter boat, but it didnt start out that way. Fiberglass boats are everywhere and you can buy them for little or nothing, Staples said. There is nothing wrong with them; usually the engine goes bad, but the hulls are usually in great shape most of the time. So if you nd one, and kind of like the way it looks, you can get it for a song and a dance. And youve got a good project to work on. From derelict to done Staples said the Silver Hook originally was one of a pair of lobster boats from New England. This one was called the Touch and its sister ship was the Broadbill, he said. Both boats were equipped with inboard, outboards and were rigged for long-lining sword sh. The Broadbill was lost at sea during Hurricane Opal in 1995, and the Touch found its way around town. It was sitting around for several years in different peoples yards and they were going to x it up, but nobody ever did, he said. Staples said he had seen the boat near Industrial Park, then over in a yard off Siebert. Guy Santucci nally bought it and had it sitting at his business on U.S. 98, Coastline Tree Service. You could see it sitting up behind Half Hitch, Staples said. But the boat was in pretty bad shape. Not long after, Santucci was over at Staples house grinding stumps, when Staples asked him what his plans were for the old dilapidated boat. Santucci told Staples he was going to rig it up for commercial shing, but because it was going to cost about $100,000, his wife said no way. Staples wound up buying the boat for what Santucci had in it. I gave Guy $3,000 for the hull and the little cabin area on the front, and its been a three year project at the house here just working on it in the winter time, he said. When Staples took possession of the boat, the engine had been taken out and there were two big holes in the stern. Most of the deck was gone. Holes had been cut in the fuel tanks, which were made out of plywood and berglass. They were full of leaves and water. There was no saving them, Staples said. The boat had had a huge sh box that would hold about 10,000 pounds of sh. I had to completely gut all that and take out the old sh box and get down to the bare bones, he said. But before any of that could take place, Staples had to convince his wife, Carolyn, of taking on the boat building project. It took me six months to talk my wife into letting me get it, Staples said. He nally gave Santucci the money, plus a little extra to deliver it to his 30-foot by 60-foot carport in the backyard. Staples, along with his son Allen, Caleb Brown, Pat Meyers and others have all had a little hand in the project. It was basically just a hull, Staples said. I had to x the holes in the back. I built the strut. The engine I bought brand new from Two Tonys and the fuel tanks were built by James McArdle and it holds 300 gallons of fuel. Staples said it has a 430 diesel engine it, so hopefully it will scoot along pretty good. He said his plans were to launch it this week, but because of bad weather, hes looking to put it in the water next week at Joes Bayou boat launch. Not his rst rodeo This is not Staples rst time to build a boat in his back yard. Nawh, this is my third one, he said. The rst was the Striker, a 32-footer and the second was the Al-Lin, a 44-footer that he currently charters out of Fishing Fleet Marina. The Striker took two years. Me and my dad put it together while I was teaching school, he said. The Al-Lin was a sevenyear project because I was still running the Striker and building my house and starting a family ... that was all in the same sevenyear period, he said. Although he had to talk his wife into letting him get this one, she said she is proud of his work. Its just amazing, says his wife, Carolyn. How did you know how to do all this? she asks him. I had a good teacher, he responded. Its Harolds attention to detail that most impresses Carolyn. He knows where every little wire and every little screw goes, she said. Im very proud of him. My dad was the craftsman, Staples said. He always had a boat going in the yard somewhere. As a matter of fact, Staples has a board on the wall of his workshop with a list of 10 big boats that his father has had a hand in. Several were named after family members and one even after a neighbor. In addition to building boats, his dad also crafted his own shing lures. Staples still has the molds in an old wooden box in his workshop. Staples says he learned most of what he knows about boat building from his dad, Harold Sr. The rest of it was from trial and error and using common sense and seeing what needs to be done, he said. With Staples just days away from putting the Silver Hook in the water he said: Ive got another one lined up after this one if shell let me do it. Its a little 22-footer. Capt. Staples passion lies in building boats HOOKED PHOTOS BY TINA HARBUCK | The Destin Log Capt. Harold Staples plans to launch his 36-foot charter boat, named the Silver Hook after his dads last boat, sometime next week at Joes Bayou. Inset, Staples shows off one of the molds that his father, Harold Sr., made for making shing lures. He still has them in a wooden box in his workshop. Staples says one would think its hard to work in his workshop, but he said he knows exactly where everything is located. Capt. Harold Staples says hes addicted to building boats.

By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com LYNN HAVEN Nat Dixon stole the show. Holmes County stole the victory. Dixon powered Mosley with a game-high 38 points, but Holmes County phenom Chris Walker was the difference down the stretch as the Blue Devils rallied for a 77-70 win in a matinee boys basketball game at the Jim Redfern Gymnasium on Friday. Walker, who has committed to the University of Florida and is rated consistently as one of the dozen best basketball prospects in America, scored 11 of his 15 points in the games nal 3 minutes to cap his teams comeback from a double-digit de cit to start the fourth quarter. The Blue Devils (13-8) outscored Mosley 31-12 in the nal quarter. When we got back in the game, we didnt need to shoot any more threes, Holmes County coach Po White said. We could go back inside to our big guy (Walker). He helped us take the lead. Mosley (7-17) led 5846 after three quarters, but a 17-2 run by the Blue Devils obliterated that margin and resulted in a 61-60 lead on Walkers baseline drive and layin with 3 minutes remaining. Dixon later red in a 3-pointer to give the Dolphins a 65-63 edge with 2:23 left, but that was the last time Mosley enjoyed the lead. Walkers steal and ensuing dunk put Holmes County on top 66-65 with 2 minutes remaining, and he added another dunk following a Mosley turnover for a 68-65 advantage 13 seconds later. Dixon gave the Dolphins hope with a 3pointer to trim his teams de cit to 72-70 with 36 seconds left, but Walker, Ty Russ and Jacky Miles Jr. combined to make ve of six free throws in the nal half-minute to seal the win. Walker also swatted away two shots in the nal 40 seconds, nishing with seven blocks in all.

White said Walker just learned he has been invited to the McDonalds All-American Game, where he will compete against the nations premier players at the United Center in Chicago on April 3. Although he went scoreless in the second and third quarters against Mosley, the length, talent and explosiveness all were apparent throughout the contest. Many Mosley fans who derided Walker with chants of overrated early in the game were the same people chanting We want Chris! in the waning minutes of the third quarter as Walker was catching a breather on the bench. Mosley has its own star player in Dixon, of course. The junior scored eight points in a 20-2 run spanning the rst and second quarters, and Dixon nished with 16 points in the rst half as Mosley built a 35-26 lead. He shredded Holmes Countys defense for 16 of Mosleys 23 points in the third quarter, and the Dolphins led by as many as 16 points (48-32). Walker said his team was fortunate to overcome the de cit. Sometimes in the rst half we start off slow, Walker said. In the second half we picked it up. We showed a lot of heart. Russ led Holmes County with 19 points and a 9-for-9 effort from the foul line, and Miles added 14 points. Additionally, Clay Keen and Chris Newton were huge off the bench. Keen dropped in four 3-pointers en route to 16 points, and Newton chipped in with 11. Mosleys Tequan Ward irted with foul trouble for much of the game but still managed to score 12 points. Josh Turner added nine points inside for the Dolphins. HOLMES COUNTY (77) T. Russ 4 9-9 19, Miles 3 6-8 14, Williams 0 0-0 0, Thompson 0 0-0 0, Martinez 0 0-0 0, Moore 0 0-0 0, Walker 6 3-4 15, F.

The Lady Hornets fought hard to turn the tides to the game into their favor however they were not able to maintain their gain as the Lady Pirates quickly knocked the wind out of their sails ending the second period with a score of 31-11. The Lady Hornets started the third period aggressively, perhaps a little too aggressively as the third period were full of penalty shots in favor of the Lady Pirates and ended the third period with a score of 44-19. The game reached its climax in the last period, the Lady Hornets trying to regain ground but proved for not as the Lady Pirates pressed on their campaign to victory, ending the game with a score of 50-23. They played excellently, said Head Coach Tim Alford. To win the District 3 Championships is very important to these girls. Theyve worked so very hard to get to this point.

Wednesday, February 6, 2013 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Many pet owners love spending time with their furry friend outside, but during the cold winter months pet owners need to take special precautions to ensure that their pet stays warm and healthy when the temperature drops. The good thing is that for most areas of Texas, even the winter months do not get cold enough to cause serious problems in our pets or even most large animals, said Alison Diesel, lecturer at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. The thick coats of most domestic animal species are sufcient to provide protection from the cold here in Texas, but on the rare occasion of a colder day some other things could be considered. One precaution pet owners must take is making sure dogs, cats, and other large animal species have an adequate defense from the cold when they are outside. Making sure blankets are available and dry can be extremely helpful for this purpose, said Diesel. Also, as with people, turning up the heat can help keep our pets warm as well. For smaller pets simply keeping them inside during the colder times can be the most benecial. Nonetheless, short exposure to the outside cold can be ne and is usually not detrimental to the pets health. Dogs and cats shiver a lot like people. This action is used to help generate body heat in cold climates, Diesel said. If your pet shivers while outside, shorten the length of your trips together to help reduce this trembling. Providing extra bedding like blankets and towels will also keep your pets warm and cozy. For larger pets that cannot come inside, making sure they have an adequate outdoor shelter is important to their comfort and safety. Shelters such as dog houses and stables can be very helpful during cold winds, and should have extra bedding (blankets, towels, hay, etc.) added for additional warmth. An important thing to remember for outdoor pets is to make sure they always have a fresh supply of water, Diesel said. If it gets cold enough to freeze this should be checked regularly to make sure the water doesnt freeze over. Moving water sources like fountains are less likely to do this. Conditions like frostbite and hypothermia, while not typical in warmer climates like Texas, are severe conditions that are common in colder climates. Dehydration is a possibility as well if your pets water source freezes over, Diesel said. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Bear Wrongs Patiently th spiritual work of mercy is to bear wrongs patiently. Bearing wrongs patiently does not, how ever, mean being a doormat for others to walk on. It simply means that, regardless of the wrongs which we suffer, we should bear them all patiently. For ex ample, if you have had something stolen from your unlocked car, this virtue requires that you treat this with patience and equanimity, but not that you con tinue to keep your car unlocked. It is more about the attitude that you have concerning the wrong done to you. We might take a lesson from the ancient stoics, who counseled that every event has two handles, as it were, one by which it can be borne and one by which it is unbearable. Remember that everything here is temporary and that liars, thieves, and even murderers really have no power over our immortal souls. Finally, consider the example of Jesus in his last days. Faced with false charges and inhuman torture and suffering, he prayed for his accusers and tormentors. We should show patience by praying for those who wrong us, realizing that they are the ones who have truly been harmed by their misdeeds.

Under normal circumstances, I am a rather cool, calm and collected person. I say normal because not everything in my life is normal. It takes a lot to rattle this cage of mine, but once rattled lookout, whoever rattles it. I am saying all this to get to my point, which is, somebody hacked my computer email account this past week. If you think I will take this sitting down, oh, I guess I am sitting down right now, but I assure you I will not stand for something like this. I have never been so rattled in my life. If a mistake is mine, I will own up to it. If it is not mine, lookout, sender. The rst thing I did was to call my cousin who is an attorney, Charles Sues-A-Lot, and laid the case out before him. My rst question to my cousin attorney was very basic: Is it still against the law to murder someone? As all good attorneys do, he hesitated and thought about it. He then went on to explain that if he could prove insanity, there was a good chance he could get somebody off very lightly. Insanity, I said. Is that hard to prove in a court of law? At this point, there was no hesitation whatsoever. My good lawyer cousin said, Not in your case. If insanity runs in our family, I am convinced it trotted over into his pasture a long time ago and has been milling around for years. At this point, murder is out. If I actually knew who this person was, I could defriend them like they do on Facebook. You can be sure I would defriend him with all of the sarcastic bitterness I could muster on that hot dog. I noticed this last week when I accessed my email a bunch of different pop-ups popped up on my screen. Instinctively I tried to unpop them without any success whatsoever. Every time there was a pop-up, I had the instinctive desire to pop someone in the nose. At one stage, it got out of control, and about 17,000 pop-ups jumped onto my computer screen at the same time. Without thinking, I immediately turned off my computer. If anybody knows what I did, you realize what I did was a terrible thing to do. I encrypted, or whatever the term is, these popups permanently on my computer. When I opened up my computer, it was pop-up time for the hacker. Things can be done to unhack your computer, which I put in full force. I really wanted to hack into this hackers life, except he probably does not have one. I mean, after all, where are the jollies of hacking into someones email account? I can see someone hacking into my bank account. I would love to see someone hack into my bank account and see how much money I dont have. If I was a small government, I could see somebody trying to hack into my email accounts. As it stands, where is the payoff in doing something like this? This ghost hacker cannot see me and my frustration after being hacked. So, what is the good of it all? These pop-ups on my computer were coming fast and furious. Then it hit me. This is not some ghost hacker hacking into my email account; it must be the government. The government must be behind it. I remember something called fast and furious in the news a while back. Was this what they were talking about? Am I now a casualty of Big Brother-itis? There were many similarities between what I was going through and our government. First off, the whole thing was rather annoying. I am not sure there has ever been a time in our country when the government has been more annoying than now. Then, all the hacking did not make any sense to me at all. How much of the government is really making sense to anybody anymore? I am sure there is somebody, somewhere who can make sense out of our government, but he is probably on the run. All of this hacking of my email has interrupted my life. So has the government. The government has taken on a new phase where it is not happy unless it is interrupting my life every day of the week. I would not mind so much if the government would take at least one day a week off. But no, it is a 24/7 kind of annoyance. A friend of mine said that everybody goes through this sort of thing, and it is kind of an equal share in the misery of being on the Internet. Equal share? Thats government lingo if ever I heard it. After three days of torturous working at my computer, I nally got the pop-ups to stop. I changed the password of my email account and brought all of this nonsense to a stop. I won the battle against that blasted hacker who tried to ruin my week. With a steaming cup of coffee and my open Bible, I read some comforting words. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, then he that is in the world (1 John 4:4 KJV). My relationship is of such a nature with God that nobody can hack into that relationship. I rest completely in Gods competent hands. The Rev. James L.

An FDOT of cial also discussed County 388, and said no funding is in place to expand the road, but it is being studied. Gaetz, R-Niceville, delivered the news as part of a three-stop barnstorming tour across the Panhandle, promoting projects previously announced in FDOTs veyear plan. He started the day at the Bay County Public Library, accompanied by state Sen. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, state Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, and state Rep. Jimmy Patronis, RPanama City. The state of Florida is today stepping up to be a bigger partner and a much better partner in building a transportation infrastructure that will help create jobs for Northwest Florida, the Florida Senate president told a gathering of local of cials and residents. Gaetz said $974 million in state funding will ow to Northwest Florida for transportation, rail, port and bridge projects in the next four years. Widening State 79 is one of those projects. North of Ebro, State 79 narrows Senator: State 79 expansion to nish in 2017Gaetz, Coley visit HolmesBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Rep. Marti Coley and Sen. Don Gaetz, members of state legislative delegation representing Northwest Florida, held a public hearing at the Holmes County School District Of ce on Jan. 29 to hear comments on proposals for the 2013 legislative session. Gaetz said he and Coley were seeking Holmes County-speci c bills. There have been no local bills that have been proposed by any local government, any local group, local individual or family, he said. Subsequently there will be no local bills affecting Holmes County proposed for 2013 session. The second reason, Gaetz said, was to hear from the people of Holmes County. There will be a lot of issues to come before the legislature, like they do every year, Gaetz said. There are over 3,000 bills that get introduced in the legislative session and, with Gods Man cleared of 2011 attempted murder chargeBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY Tears and solemn hugs set the mood at the Washington County Courthouse when Lawrence Brown was found not guilty of attempted murder in the second degree in the Dec. 31, 2011, stabbing of Micah Taylor. Brown, 61, a Holmes County resident, was accused of stabbing Taylor multiple times after an altercation at the Thirsty Turtle, a Washington County bar near Caryville. The jury of two men and four women took about 90 minutes to come to a verdict. The maximum sentence for second-degree attempted murder, a second-degree felony, is 15 years, said Assistant State Attorney Shalla Jefcoat, the prosecutor in the Brown trial. The jury could have found Brown guilty of lesser charges such as attempted murder in the third degree or aggravated assault, but they returned a not guilty verdict instead. Taylor eventually recovered from the attack and was one of the prosecutions witnesses. Brown did not testify during the trial. I want to thank you for the way you conducted yourself in court, and in total, 14th Judicial District Court Judge Chris Patterson, who presided over the three-day trial, told Brown. I appreciate the way you conducted yourself and the way the gallery conducted themselves during the trial. Dozens of Browns relatives lled half the courtrooms benches, and after the verdict was read, a steady line of teary-eyed friends and relatives hugged Brown and congratulated him. Lawrence Brown, along with Caleb Brown and Daniel Brown, From Staff ReportsBONIFAY The Holmes County Health Department and Doctors Memorial Hospital partnered to promote Heart Health Awareness with a Heart Awareness Walk that was held at Doctors Memorial Hospital on Friday, Feb. 1.

MARRIAGES No marriages were recorded. DIVORCES David Wayne Phillips and Stacey Marie Phillipsto two lanes, but the $139 million project will add two more lanes and a median, Gaetz said. That stretch of road runs through Holmes and Washington counties. Gaetz also said $44.9 million will go toward widening State 77, from the Bay County line to Interstate 10. The project is divided into six segments, totaling 23.5 miles, but no funding is in place for construction costs; the allocated money will be used for design and right-of-way acquisition. And, Gaetz said, $85 million will be used for an elevated overpass a yover at the U.S. 98 and 23rd Street intersection. The project should be nished in 2015. FDOT District 3 Secretary Tommy Bar eld said the contract for the State 79 project will be executed this month. That contract is ready to go. Its been advertised. Anderson Columbia was the low bidder, he said. Though the improvements will stop at Interstate 10, FDOT plans to four-lane State 79 to the Alabama border. The state will spend $5.05 million in 2017 to study that expansion.COUNTY 388Bar eld also addressed County 388. He said the previous district secretary committed to take ownership of the road from the county, but that hasnt happened. Nevertheless, he said it will be done eventually. Were trying to work out, with the county all the details, and let me assure you that we are going to follow through on our commitment as an agency, he said. Bar eld said County 388 is being reviewed in a project development and environmental study; FDOT is looking at expanding it to four lanes. He said this would be done in phases; likely the rst phase would be from Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport entrance to State 79. No construction funds are in place. As soon as we get through with (the study), well know more about the cost; well know more about the right-of-way acquisition, he said. mercy, only 10 percent of them will go on to become law. Most of the rest of them are some pretty dumb ideas. One of the most important aspects of visiting constituents, Gaetz said, is to get an accurate read on public input. So were here today to listen to your concerns, your questions, your insights and help inform us as we grow in the House and in the Senate, he said. Representative Coley, were very fortunate to have her as our state representative in this area. She is the speaker pro-tem elected by the House of Representatives to be the No. 2 person in the House, working very closely with the speaker in the Senate agenda and moving the House of Representatives forward. The rst to speak was Holmes County resident Joe Kegan. I would like to improve the support of the freedom of unwarranted surveillance act, Kegan said. It is a bill to protect individual privacy against unwarranted governmental intrusion through the use of the unmanned aerial vehicles commonly called drones, and for other purposes. Next to speak was Holmes County Supervisor of Elections Debbie Wilcox Morris. After the 2012 elections, with issues that were experienced, it seems throughout the state theres going to be a review of the election laws again, and I would just ask that you, after looking at early voting, that you would give the supervisors of elections more exibility in where we put up early voting, Morris said. ... the law says we shall have it in our of ce. We have a very small elections of ce, and early voting went well for us, but I think we would be able to better serve our voters if we were able to have it maybe at the ag center so we could have ample parking and more space. She requested the law state early voting may be held at the supervisor of elections of ce. There are some counties that have large supervisor of elections of ces and can accommodate; however, in Holmes County, we do not have a large ofce, she said. Also in reference to electronic poll books, I know that after the 2010 elections we had an issue with the electronic poll books. That is so ef cient for our voters, and the only information that a poll worker will see is the same thing they would see if they were using a paper precinct register. Morris said it was a time saver and reduced the chances of error. Theyre not having to ip through pages to nd that voters name. They dont have to worry about them accidentally signing on the incorrect line, and when someone else comes in and it shows that theyve already voted, then they have an issue, she said. With the electronic precinct registers, our data is updated in real time. I hope if this issue comes up again that the legislature will support it. Morris said she had to retrain poll workers in address veri cation. They can no longer ask you if you still live at 116 Redwood Drive, and that concerns me, especially now that we have a split in one of our precincts with the redistricting, she said. We have a district that was split into two congressional districts, and if they cant make sure that the voters address is correct, they could be issued an incorrect ballot, and it could impact the outcome of that election. She said the last issue she had was referendum ballots. The 11 constitutional amendments this time, I think, was what created a lot of the issues throughout the state with long lines, Morris said. Our voters did an excellent job educating themselves. I think we had more people vote on those amendments this time than weve ever had, but we had a two-page ballot, front and back, and fortunately everything went well for us. She said she felt sympathy for those counties where the supervisors of elections were slammed for their extensive lines. I dont think it was a fault of theirs, she said. They didnt have adequate early voting locations that they could choose to use, and then there was the length of the ballot. It went well here because voters educated themselves and came prepared for the most part. She said with the extension of the early voting days, the only thing was to do away with the Sunday before Election Day because thats the day her of ce usually delivers its electronic equipment. It will give us one day to go out and set everything up, she said. We dont have that many people here that vote on Sunday, so for us it would be better if we had that extra time to make sure everything is set up and ready.

Expires 02/28/2013 By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Regional Director of Resource Development at United Way of Northwest Florida Ron Sharpe visited the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners during their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, Jan. 29. Im looking to hold United Way campaigns throughout Holmes County to raise awareness to the services provided in Holmes County. There are over 31 agencies that are available to assist the residents of Holmes County like Life Management, Tri County Community Council, Sharpe said. He said it was difcult for people to become more knowledgeable about most of those agencies because they werent stationed in Holmes County. Even though they are located in Panama City, its the residents of Holmes County that receive the help, he said. One ofce in Panama City was able to help over 50,000 people. Some of those people were from Holmes County. Ten calls a day are made from people who need help with their power bills, he said. 95 cents of every dollar remains local, Sharpe said. A little bit out of each pay roll helps immensely, and that money can go to the agency of your choice. A lot of that is possible because the United Way pulls resources from both state and federal. When someone gives to United Way over the course of a year it has a large impact, he said. When it comes to United Way, its like a grant and someone, not a paid staff member but someone within your community, will look at the dollars. They will look at the grant request, and our agencies will ll out an application, a grant application. They tell us how much we need, how theyre going to use the money and that whole process. For Holmes County, those individuals are Julia Bullington with the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce, Melissa Willard with Regions Bank, Fran Haithcoat with Wells Fargo and Brenda Blitch from Doctors Memorial Hospital. The money given through donations is matched and increased because of grant matches, Sharpe said. For example, Life Management has a foster care adoption program and $25 is given for every dollar donated, he said. Meals on Wheels gets $9 for every dollar and the Early Learning Coalition that funds daycare centers in Holmes County gets $17 for every dollar donated. The Red Cross has helped ve people over this winter after loosing everything due to house res and they dont get any funding aside from agencies like ours. Commissioner David Whitaker asked how does the United Way keep people from abusing these services. Weve learned a lot from past disasters, Sharpe said. We have a system set up that keeps people from double-dipping, so to speak, and all agencies have to be reviewed and audited on an annual basis. Its all about accountability. Sharpe said one-time donations can be made online, and you can use cash, check, credit card or payroll deductions for donating. Payroll deduction is the strength of United Way because youll never miss a dollar out of each paycheck, Sharpe said. One of the most recent successes was Doctors Memorial Hospital, he said. Doctors Memorial Hospital had never done anything like this before, but Blitch said she was interested in bringing it to her staff and giving it a shot, he said. The rst year they raised $2,500 and last year they raised $3,330. They saw the needs in their community and decided to make a difference in their community. Chair Monty Merchant said that he has seen United Way successfully raise money for local agencies through a previous employer. This is a good opportunity to give to a local agency and make a difference in our community, Whitaker said. Sharpe added that Covenant Hospice was also an agency that received grant money from every dollar raised. A lot of times people cant afford these services, and heaven forbid you should need it, but theyd never turn you away, he said. Were in challenging times. We just need to raise awareness that these agencies are out there to help in these trying times of economic crisis. BOCC approved Commissioner Bobby Sasnetts requested to pay a local beaver hunter for his services, saying he was charging the county $480 at a rate of $30 per beaver. I dont know how much of a problem were having with these beavers, but if killing them helps then we should see about it, Sasnett said. County employee Eddie Whitehurst veried that the beavers in Holmes County are an issue and one that the county should take note of because theyve had the job of cleaning out the beaver dams, but soon their work crew will be reduced. Commissioner Bill Parish suggested going out to bid if they nd that this service is benecial to the county, and Whitehurst brought before the BOCC an estimate to cover the new fuel tankards at Districts 3 and 4 Road Yard. Because of the newer and bigger fuel tankards, were needing something bigger to cover them from the weather, Whitehurst said. BOCC agreed to table the matter until Whitehurst found a cheaper means of covering the tankards. BOCC approved of accepting two vehicles handed down from the Tri County Community Council for the Holmes County Public Library and the road department. Weve never had a vehicle for the library, said Susan Harris from the HCPL. Weve been striving for a vehicle to take to the rural areas. We want to provide what services we have in the library, such as the Internet, to those areas who cant afford to make it to the library. BOCC approved getting an assessment and a recommendation for what should be done with faulty air conditioning unit at the Holmes County Agricultural building. BOCC approved of The Northwest Florida Regional Planning to continue offering the State Housing Initiatives Partnership program after receiving word that program has received funding for the new year. BOCC approved Tri County Community Council representative Joel Pauls request for TCCC to submit a Transportation Service Development Grant. The Department of Transportation has a grant available to improve our transportation programs, Paul said. For us, it has already been approved. We just need to show the approval of the board. Well be using it to update our software for better scheduling, mapping, routes, GPS, etc. County Engineer Cliff Knauer approached the board to remind them about deadlines for the Florida Boating Improvement Program grant. One of our former commissioners, Jim King, was trying to push for a boat ramp at the Choctawhatchee River in Holmes County on the west end of Highway 90, Knauer said. Because it didnt score high enough, we werent able to get the grant. First of all, we couldnt get a letter from the DOT to allow access through their right-of-way, and second of all, everyone who submitted an application and was accepted was fully prepared beforehand with survey analyses, etc. We didnt have any surveying or impact studies, Knauer said. We can get those without any problem, it just takes time. So if anyone has any boat ramp, parking lot or restroom issues, weve got to get on it soon so we can get what we need for this grant. Parish asked County Attorney Jeff Goodman what the status was for the Holmes County Comprehension Plan. Goodman said the county had been through the painstaking process of updating the Comprehensive Plan to meet legislative requirements, and now all that was required was to see if they are still in compliance and if they want to update their Evaluation and Appraisal Report. Parish also said that there are issues with erosion on North and South Ride. Knauer agreed to review the plan with Parish. Were ready when you are, said Knauer. Merchant told the board a local church that is a building a new sanctuary approached him about waiving the building fee. The board members agreed it wasnt a good idea to waive the fees. If we waive it for one, well have to waive it for all, said Williams. Even I had to tell the same thing to my church when they asked. BOCC approved of consent items minutes for January 8, 2013, Workshop & Regular Session, Real Property Lease with Reba Sconiers for District 1 Road Yard, Travel Request for Wanda Stafford to go to the Annual Governors Hurricane Conference and Miscellaneous Appropriations Agreement with the Council on Aging. The next regularly scheduled HC BOCC meeting is set for 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at the Holmes County BOCC Chamber located behind the Holmes County Courthouse.United Way rep visits Holmes BOCC

Decorative, Decorative, As always, Free Estimates. With the threat of tornadoes in neighboring Alabama and Georgia, some of our transplanted Bonifay children have come to understand the sound of the familiar mill whistle that we hear every day at noon to have a more urgent meaning. Former residents David and Erin (Brooks) Lauen and Stephanie (Lauen) Ford live with their families in Atlanta. This past week they heard sirens several times sending school children with their teachers to storm shelters. Their mother, Christine Lauen, said Bonifay needs a dangerous-storm warning system. Hazel, you should write an article about that. Well, I dont editorialize much so this is not a suggestion that our city fathers start a warning system. That doesnt t into my writing style. I would assume each school has some sort of storm drill just as they do re drills. I remember when I was teaching and the sky was threatening, some kids would become quite worried. I gave them the instructions even though we didnt have a sustained siren sound. Move to the inside wall. Get on your knees with your hands and arms over your head. And while you are down there, pray that God will keep the storm up in the sky. I am fully con dent that He is able to do that. But the idea of a siren as a severe weather-warning device brought to mind our noon mill whistle, which blows at noon every day. To those of us who live here, it is a sound to which we are long accustomed. But for newcomers to our area, it sometimes causes alarm. When our former youth minister and his bride, Jason and Nicole Stanland, moved here a couple of years ago, they were getting settled into their home about a block from First Baptist Church. When the noon mill whistle sounded, thinking it was surely warning of some impending disaster, they were almost panic-stricken. They had no knowledge of what the disaster might be nor how they were to respond to the warning. They soon became accustomed, however, to that signal telling Bonifay folk, Its time for lunch. Many ask about the history of the whistle. I cant be sure, but Ive always thought it was a carry-over from the days in the 1940s and 50s when the Bonifay Heading Company employed many Bonifay and surrounding area citizens. The header mill as it was locally called was located near where Jerkins Inc. is now located. They made wooden barrelheads (covers) that were used mainly in the naval stores industry. Much of their equipment was powered by steam produced by burning the wood byproducts from the shaping of the circular barrelheads. Ray Brooks, who lived near the mill as a child where both his parents worked, said the ash from the burning process often soiled the clothes, which his mother and sisters hung outdoors to dry. The steam produced by the furnace also powered the mill whistle. When we lived in town in the early 1950s, it sounded at noon to signal lunch time and again at 5 p.m. to signal quitting time. If there was one in the morning to signal starting time or at 1 p.m. to signal go back to work time, I dont recall. I actually think there was a 1 p.m. whistle and perhaps a 7 p.m. one. Ray says the re whistle that blows today was originally located atop what was Red Alfords Western Auto Store next door to Progressive Realty on Waukesha Street. I believe it is now located atop the water tank behind the Middle School Gym atop McKinnon Hill. It was when I was teaching there. I had always assumed the noon whistle was set on a timer, but I called Elois Bradshaw who works at Bonifay City Hall. She said, No. We ring it by hand. The job is assigned to Sabrina Peters, but when she has to go and work at the re station, either Elois, Frances Kline, Betty Tadlock or City Clerk Jeri Gibson ring it. I suppose one of them is also assigned to push the button for the start of parades. Many visitors and newcomers to our town have puzzled over the re alarm sounding at noon. Now you know the origin. In a future article, I will write more of the history of the Bonifay Heading Company. HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison The mill whistle still sounds at noonOn Friday, Jan. 18, my sister Muriel Wells Turner, informed me in a telephone conversation that the landmark building, known as David Cooks store, on Highway 79 south of Bonifay, had been reduced to rubble by the wrecking crew assigned to remove it from the right of way, required for further widening of the road leading to the Bay County Gulf Beaches. Ironically, Muriels Vernon High School classmate of 1961, Sandra Hightower Miller, had the responsibility of passing this sad message to our sister. Sandra also knew the history of Muriels two grown daughters, Maria and Meredith, depending upon a visit for candy as children to Davids Store. Their grandfather, Hugh Wells, whom they affectionately called Pa, delighted in taking them and other grandchildren for the special treat. The word irony is used because Sandras mother, Fannie Lou Simmons Hightower, has already witnessed her Vernon home, falling victim to demolition by the house wreckers ball. Her historic home was also acquired by the state upon determining that it was also in the path of the highways widening project through the town of Vernon. Further signi cance to the Hightowers home removal is the fact that Fannie Lou was reared in the home as the daughter of Frederick Houston (Fred) Simmons and Jessie Lee Spencer Simmons. She was their only child. Upon marrying Brown Doyle Hightower on August 10, 1939, an arrangement developed that allowed the newly weds to become the owners of the old home place where they continued to live their lives together. It was in this location that the couple reared their two daughters, Linda and Sandra. Brown Hightowers lifetime job was in road construction, and maybe this fact lessened the impact on family members who saw the necessity of surrendering the family home to the massive road improvement project. The David Cook combination home and business was built long after the Simmons/ Hightower edi ce, but its strategic location resulted in it becoming somewhat of a beacon in the community. Floyd Cook, a nephew of David, wrote the David and Carolyn Mercer Cook story for the 2006 Heritage of Washington County Book. Floyd listed Davids parents as Arthur Bennett Cook and Vera Mae Kelly Cook. School for David included Union Hill, Vernon High School and Holmes County High School, where he played football. He served in the U.S. Army during World War II, and upon discharge from the service, he soon married Carrie Hortense (Carolyn) Mercer Cook. Their two sons are Wallace and Terry Cook. The combination country grocery store/ home also later became a lling station and feed store. The latter also served as a voting precinct for many years. David was a longtime school bus driver, driving a bus to Vernon High School until retirement. Residents of the area patronized the business faithfully and also relied on the stalwarts, David and Carolyn, to provide directions to travelers and strangers who had previously been told to watch for David Cooks Store for instructions, should they be unable to nd a particular home, church or other location in that community. James W. (Bill) Lee, who was reared practically on the Holmes-Washington county line, is a longtime career employee of the Washington County School System. He wrote a heartwarming, timely article on the lives of David and Carolyn in the Heritage of Washington County Book, submitted within days of Davids death on Feb. 24, 2005. Bills writing pointed out the convenience of the store whether it was to stop by for the traditional Moon Pie and an R.C. Cola while taking a break form hauling hay or to purchase your sh bait for a relaxing day of shing when heading to the lakes and the Choctawhatchee River located at Hinson Cross Roads. Bills writing mentioned David Cooks store as the place to gain information as to the happenings going on in the area. Just hang around the store for a few minutes and you could learn who was sick, where the next hog killing would be going on and who had fresh turnips or new potatoes ready to dig. Candidates for public of ce knew that the country stores in the rural area were a Mecca for people to assemble and an excellent place to see the most voters by timing your visits around noontime or late in the afternoons. Before the days of modern radio communications in law enforcement, Ruth Bush, longtime employee of the sheriffs department, reports of depending on the public telephones installed in the country stores to keep in touch with the deputies, whether it be in New Hope, Ebro, Greenhead or Millers Ferry. In 1976, Jim and Jesses bluegrass rendition of the John Prine protest song, Paradise, where the lyrics objection to strip mining is outlined in the chorus to the lengthy and beautiful version of the song: Daddy wont you take me back to Mullenberg County, down by the Green River where paradise lay? Im sorry my son, but youre too late in asking, Mr. Peabodys Coal Train done hauled it away. In other verses, a line is used that attributes strip mining operations to brought it all down to the progress of man. Maybe road and bridge building and others acts requiring destruction and disruption of status quo can be justi ed by attributing is all to the progress of man.

Taylor and Dumas began ghting, with Dumas punching Taylor in the face and the couple biting each other. The Browns got involved with the ght. At one point, Washington County sheriffs deputies arrived to investigate reports of a loud argument, but no one was arrested. According to testimony, after the Browns squared off with Taylor, they got into their vehicle and left with the girls. About 3:30 a.m. Jan. 1, 2012, Taylors uncle Randall Taylor called 911 to report the stabbing. Jefcoat told the jurors in her closing arguments that Lawrence Brown had stabbed Taylor from behind while Taylor fought with Caleb Brown. Defense Attorney David Thomas of DeFuniak Springs noted during closing arguments that there were no witnesses to the stabbing, with Taylor testifying that he couldnt see who was stabbing him, but he identi ed the stabber as Lawrence Brown based on the shape of his assailants body and his voice. Dumas testi ed that Taylor was madder than she had ever seen him that evening and that Taylor was known for carrying a knife similar to a box opener. No knives were recovered at the crime scene, nor were any submitted into evidence, Thomas said. Thomas also pointed to discrepancies in Taylors statements to police, lawyers and his doctor that suggest Taylor was dishonest in his claim that Lawrence Brown stabbed him. He claims he remembers better now than he did when the incident occurred, Thomas said. There was nothing in his injuries that would have affected his memory.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, February 6, 2013 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection The Silver Hook has been a three-year winter project for Harold Staples. He has kept the boat under a 30-foot by 60-foot carport in his backyard.By TINA HARBUCK654-8440 | @DestinLogTina tharbuck@thedestinlog.com He was just a teenager when he rst helped his dad build a shing boat, and now at age 63 hes still building boats in his Destin backyard. Im addicted to it, said Capt. Harold Staples, who has been building the 36-footer in his backyard on Stahlman Avenue for the past three years. Some people are addicted to some things, mine is the water and being around boats its my passion. Staples hopes to launch his new boat, tagged the Silver Hook after his fathers last boat, sometime next week. All thats left to do is paint the bottom and nish the wiring, Staples said. Its a big thing when you put it in the water and see it oating out there. Then you get on it and make it go. When she hits the water, the Silver Hook will be a berglass, six-passenger charter boat, but it didnt start out that way. Fiberglass boats are everywhere and you can buy them for little or nothing, Staples said. There is nothing wrong with them; usually the engine goes bad, but the hulls are usually in great shape most of the time. So if you nd one, and kind of like the way it looks, you can get it for a song and a dance. And youve got a good project to work on.From derelict to doneStaples said the Silver Hook originally was one of a pair of lobster boats from New England. This one was called the Touch and its sister ship was the Broadbill, he said. Both boats were equipped with inboard, outboards and were rigged for long-lining sword sh. The Broadbill was lost at sea during Hurricane Opal in 1995, and the Touch found its way around town. It was sitting around for several years in different peoples yards and they were going to x it up, but nobody ever did, he said. Staples said he had seen the boat near Industrial Park, then over in a yard off Siebert. Guy Santucci nally bought it and had it sitting at his business on U.S. 98, Coastline Tree Service. You could see it sitting up behind Half Hitch, Staples said. But the boat was in pretty bad shape. Not long after, Santucci was over at Staples house grinding stumps, when Staples asked him what his plans were for the old dilapidated boat. Santucci told Staples he was going to rig it up for commercial shing, but because it was going to cost about $100,000, his wife said no way. Staples wound up buying the boat for what Santucci had in it. I gave Guy $3,000 for the hull and the little cabin area on the front, and its been a three year project at the house here just working on it in the winter time, he said. When Staples took possession of the boat, the engine had been taken out and there were two big holes in the stern. Most of the deck was gone. Holes had been cut in the fuel tanks, which were made out of plywood and berglass. They were full of leaves and water. There was no saving them, Staples said. The boat had had a huge sh box that would hold about 10,000 pounds of sh. I had to completely gut all that and take out the old sh box and get down to the bare bones, he said. But before any of that could take place, Staples had to convince his wife, Carolyn, of taking on the boat building project. It took me six months to talk my wife into letting me get it, Staples said. He nally gave Santucci the money, plus a little extra to deliver it to his 30-foot by 60-foot carport in the backyard. Staples, along with his son Allen, Caleb Brown, Pat Meyers and others have all had a little hand in the project. It was basically just a hull, Staples said. I had to x the holes in the back. I built the strut. The engine I bought brand new from Two Tonys and the fuel tanks were built by James McArdle and it holds 300 gallons of fuel. Staples said it has a 430 diesel engine it, so hopefully it will scoot along pretty good. He said his plans were to launch it this week, but because of bad weather, hes looking to put it in the water next week at Joes Bayou boat launch.Not his rst rodeoThis is not Staples rst time to build a boat in his back yard. Nawh, this is my third one, he said. The rst was the Striker, a 32-footer and the second was the Al-Lin, a 44-footer that he currently charters out of Fishing Fleet Marina. The Striker took two years. Me and my dad put it together while I was teaching school, he said. The Al-Lin was a sevenyear project because I was still running the Striker and building my house and starting a family ... that was all in the same sevenyear period, he said. Although he had to talk his wife into letting him get this one, she said she is proud of his work. Its just amazing, says his wife, Carolyn. How did you know how to do all this? she asks him. I had a good teacher, he responded. Its Harolds attention to detail that most impresses Carolyn. He knows where every little wire and every little screw goes, she said. Im very proud of him. My dad was the craftsman, Staples said. He always had a boat going in the yard somewhere. As a matter of fact, Staples has a board on the wall of his workshop with a list of 10 big boats that his father has had a hand in. Several were named after family members and one even after a neighbor. In addition to building boats, his dad also crafted his own shing lures. Staples still has the molds in an old wooden box in his workshop. Staples says he learned most of what he knows about boat building from his dad, Harold Sr. The rest of it was from trial and error and using common sense and seeing what needs to be done, he said. With Staples just days away from putting the Silver Hook in the water he said: Ive got another one lined up after this one if shell let me do it. Its a little 22-footer. Capt. Staples passion lies in building boatsHOOKEDPHOTOS BY TINA HARBUCK | The Destin LogCapt. Harold Staples plans to launch his 36-foot charter boat, named the Silver Hook after his dads last boat, sometime next week at Joes Bayou. Inset, Staples shows off one of the molds that his father, Harold Sr., made for making shing lures. He still has them in a wooden box in his workshop. Staples says one would think its hard to work in his workshop, but he said he knows exactly where everything is located. Capt. Harold Staples says hes addicted to building boats.

By JASON SHOOT747-5069 @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com LYNN HAVEN Nat Dixon stole the show. Holmes County stole the victory. Dixon powered Mosley with a game-high 38 points, but Holmes County phenom Chris Walker was the difference down the stretch as the Blue Devils rallied for a 77-70 win in a matinee boys basketball game at the Jim Redfern Gymnasium on Friday. Walker, who has committed to the University of Florida and is rated consistently as one of the dozen best basketball prospects in America, scored 11 of his 15 points in the games nal 3 minutes to cap his teams comeback from a double-digit de cit to start the fourth quarter. The Blue Devils (13-8) outscored Mosley 31-12 in the nal quarter. When we got back in the game, we didnt need to shoot any more threes, Holmes County coach Po White said. We could go back inside to our big guy (Walker). He helped us take the lead. Mosley (7-17) led 5846 after three quarters, but a 17-2 run by the Blue Devils obliterated that margin and resulted in a 61-60 lead on Walkers baseline drive and layin with 3 minutes remaining. Dixon later red in a 3-pointer to give the Dolphins a 65-63 edge with 2:23 left, but that was the last time Mosley enjoyed the lead. Walkers steal and ensuing dunk put Holmes County on top 66-65 with 2 minutes remaining, and he added another dunk following a Mosley turnover for a 68-65 advantage 13 seconds later. Dixon gave the Dolphins hope with a 3pointer to trim his teams de cit to 72-70 with 36 seconds left, but Walker, Ty Russ and Jacky Miles Jr. combined to make ve of six free throws in the nal half-minute to seal the win. Walker also swatted away two shots in the nal 40 seconds, nishing with seven blocks in all. We BRING it HOME!

Life Management thanks the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners for their support, said Teresa McDonald of Life Management. Very few know that suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States, and for every completed suicide there are 11 attempted suicides. The toll free crisis and suicide prevention hotline is 1-800-490-4826 for a local counselor available 24 hours a day, seven days a week or the national hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). The board approved of the Holmes County Small Quantity Generator Program Report, which indicated a cost of $4,000 to dispose of chemical waste produced by the county. The board also approved of County Attorney Jeff Goodmans recommendation to allow West Florida Regional Planning to update the Holmes County BOCC Equal Opportunity Plan for $770. The plan is several years old and is in need of updating, said Goodman.

White said Walker just learned he has been invited to the McDonalds All-American Game, where he will compete against the nations premier players at the United Center in Chicago on April 3. Although he went scoreless in the second and third quarters against Mosley, the length, talent and explosiveness all were apparent throughout the contest. Many Mosley fans who derided Walker with chants of overrated early in the game were the same people chanting We want Chris! in the waning minutes of the third quarter as Walker was catching a breather on the bench. Mosley has its own star player in Dixon, of course. The junior scored eight points in a 20-2 run spanning the rst and second quarters, and Dixon nished with 16 points in the rst half as Mosley built a 35-26 lead. He shredded Holmes Countys defense for 16 of Mosleys 23 points in the third quarter, and the Dolphins led by as many as 16 points (48-32). Walker said his team was fortunate to overcome the de cit. Sometimes in the rst half we start off slow, Walker said. In the second half we picked it up. We showed a lot of heart. Russ led Holmes County with 19 points and a 9-for-9 effort from the foul line, and Miles added 14 points. Additionally, Clay Keen and Chris Newton were huge off the bench. Keen dropped in four 3-pointers en route to 16 points, and Newton chipped in with 11. Mosleys Tequan Ward irted with foul trouble for much of the game but still managed to score 12 points.

Hannah Howell had 10 points and 10 rebounds to lead Ponce de Leon to its ninth straight district championship. Jordan Thomas added 11 points and four rebounds and Ashley Harper chipped in nine points and four rebounds for the Pirates (22-5). The Lady Hornets fought hard to turn the tides to the game into their favor however they were not able to maintain their gain as the Lady Pirates quickly knocked the wind out of their sails ending the second period with a score of 31-11. The Lady Hornets started the third period aggressively, perhaps a little too aggressively as the third period were full of penalty shots in favor of the Lady Pirates and ended the third period with a score of 44-19. The game reached its climax in the last period, the Lady Hornets trying to regain ground but proved for not as the Lady Pirates pressed on their campaign to victory, ending the game with a score of 50-23. They played excellently, said Head Coach Tim Alford. To win the District 3 Championships is very important to these girls. Theyve worked so very hard to get to this point.

Wednesday, February 6, 2013 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3Many pet owners love spending time with their furry friend outside, but during the cold winter months pet owners need to take special precautions to ensure that their pet stays warm and healthy when the temperature drops. The good thing is that for most areas of Texas, even the winter months do not get cold enough to cause serious problems in our pets or even most large animals, said Alison Diesel, lecturer at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. The thick coats of most domestic animal species are sufcient to provide protection from the cold here in Texas, but on the rare occasion of a colder day some other things could be considered. One precaution pet owners must take is making sure dogs, cats, and other large animal species have an adequate defense from the cold when they are outside. Making sure blankets are available and dry can be extremely helpful for this purpose, said Diesel. Also, as with people, turning up the heat can help keep our pets warm as well. For smaller pets simply keeping them inside during the colder times can be the most benecial. Nonetheless, short exposure to the outside cold can be ne and is usually not detrimental to the pets health. Dogs and cats shiver a lot like people. This action is used to help generate body heat in cold climates, Diesel said. If your pet shivers while outside, shorten the length of your trips together to help reduce this trembling. Providing extra bedding like blankets and towels will also keep your pets warm and cozy. For larger pets that cannot come inside, making sure they have an adequate outdoor shelter is important to their comfort and safety. Shelters such as dog houses and stables can be very helpful during cold winds, and should have extra bedding (blankets, towels, hay, etc.) added for additional warmth. An important thing to remember for outdoor pets is to make sure they always have a fresh supply of water, Diesel said. If it gets cold enough to freeze this should be checked regularly to make sure the water doesnt freeze over. Moving water sources like fountains are less likely to do this. Conditions like frostbite and hypothermia, while not typical in warmer climates like Texas, are severe conditions that are common in colder climates. Dehydration is a possibility as well if your pets water source freezes over, Diesel said. Pet Talk is a service of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University.

Bearing wrongs patiently does not, however, mean being a doormat for others to walk on. It simply means that, regardless of the wrongs which we suffer, we should bear them all patiently. For example, if you have had something stolen from your unlocked car, this virtue requires that you treat this with patience and equanimity, but not that you continue to keep your car unlocked. It is more about the attitude that you have concerning the wrong done to you. We might take a lesson from the ancient stoics, who counseled that every event has two handles, as it were, one by which it can be borne and one by which it is unbearable. Remember that everything here is temporary and that liars, thieves, and even murderers really have no power over our immortal souls. Finally, consider the example of Jesus in his last days. Faced with false charges and inhuman torture and suffering, he prayed for his accusers and tormentors. We should show patience by praying for those who wrong us, realizing that they are the ones who have truly been harmed by their misdeeds.BROWN FUNERAL HOME1068 Main Street, Chipley638-4010 Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser This Message Courtesy ofFor one is approved if, mindful of God, he endures pain while suffering unjustly.

Under normal circumstances, I am a rather cool, calm and collected person. I say normal because not everything in my life is normal. It takes a lot to rattle this cage of mine, but once rattled lookout, whoever rattles it. I am saying all this to get to my point, which is, somebody hacked my computer email account this past week. If you think I will take this sitting down, oh, I guess I am sitting down right now, but I assure you I will not stand for something like this. I have never been so rattled in my life. If a mistake is mine, I will own up to it. If it is not mine, lookout, sender. The rst thing I did was to call my cousin who is an attorney, Charles Sues-A-Lot, and laid the case out before him. My rst question to my cousin attorney was very basic: Is it still against the law to murder someone? As all good attorneys do, he hesitated and thought about it. He then went on to explain that if he could prove insanity, there was a good chance he could get somebody off very lightly. Insanity, I said. Is that hard to prove in a court of law? At this point, there was no hesitation whatsoever. My good lawyer cousin said, Not in your case. If insanity runs in our family, I am convinced it trotted over into his pasture a long time ago and has been milling around for years. At this point, murder is out. If I actually knew who this person was, I could defriend them like they do on Facebook. You can be sure I would defriend him with all of the sarcastic bitterness I could muster on that hot dog. I noticed this last week when I accessed my email a bunch of different pop-ups popped up on my screen. Instinctively I tried to unpop them without any success whatsoever. Every time there was a pop-up, I had the instinctive desire to pop someone in the nose. At one stage, it got out of control, and about 17,000 pop-ups jumped onto my computer screen at the same time. Without thinking, I immediately turned off my computer. If anybody knows what I did, you realize what I did was a terrible thing to do. I encrypted, or whatever the term is, these popups permanently on my computer. When I opened up my computer, it was pop-up time for the hacker. Things can be done to unhack your computer, which I put in full force. I really wanted to hack into this hackers life, except he probably does not have one. I mean, after all, where are the jollies of hacking into someones email account? I can see someone hacking into my bank account. I would love to see someone hack into my bank account and see how much money I dont have. If I was a small government, I could see somebody trying to hack into my email accounts. As it stands, where is the payoff in doing something like this? This ghost hacker cannot see me and my frustration after being hacked. So, what is the good of it all? These pop-ups on my computer were coming fast and furious. Then it hit me. This is not some ghost hacker hacking into my email account; it must be the government. The government must be behind it. I remember something called fast and furious in the news a while back. Was this what they were talking about? Am I now a casualty of Big Brother-itis? There were many similarities between what I was going through and our government. First off, the whole thing was rather annoying. I am not sure there has ever been a time in our country when the government has been more annoying than now. Then, all the hacking did not make any sense to me at all. How much of the government is really making sense to anybody anymore? I am sure there is somebody, somewhere who can make sense out of our government, but he is probably on the run. All of this hacking of my email has interrupted my life. So has the government. The government has taken on a new phase where it is not happy unless it is interrupting my life every day of the week. I would not mind so much if the government would take at least one day a week off. But no, it is a 24/7 kind of annoyance. A friend of mine said that everybody goes through this sort of thing, and it is kind of an equal share in the misery of being on the Internet. Equal share? Thats government lingo if ever I heard it. After three days of torturous working at my computer, I nally got the pop-ups to stop. I changed the password of my email account and brought all of this nonsense to a stop. I won the battle against that blasted hacker who tried to ruin my week. With a steaming cup of coffee and my open Bible, I read some comforting words. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, then he that is in the world (1 John 4:4 KJV). My relationship is of such a nature with God that nobody can hack into that relationship. I rest completely in Gods competent hands. The Rev. James L.
