There were 260 communities applying for that grant, and all of them scored higher points than you, to be blunt, Dingman said. I assure you though, there was nothing you could do to score any higher than you did. I must say that the time and effort that you did as a town was impressive to raise your scores, it just wasnt enough. Dingman explained that scoring was based aspects such as the income of the population, number of minorities employed by the town, health and safety of the water supply and so on. For the income of the population, it is still based on the census done in 2000, and I have a feeling that the residents exaggerated on their income on that census, Dingman said. The 2010 census results wont be used until September of this year, however I dont think the trend will have changed. The minority employment rate for the town would have to be above a certain percentage in comparison to the countys for the points to make a signi cant difference, he said. Another way to increase your points was to get a letter from the Department of Environmental Protection stating that youd have to update your water system for the health and well being of your residents, he said. However, since your water is still at safe drinking levels and youre only replacing existing pipes, that was not an option.

The tour is continuing with a stop in Bonifay at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Carmel Assembly of God Church. The Watoto Childrens Choir acts as Watoto ambassadors to raise awareness about the plight of the orphaned and vulnerable children of Africa. Watoto is a holistic child care solution initiated to serve the dire needs of Africa and her people. Each of the children in the choir has suffered the loss of one or both parents. They live in Watoto Childrens Villages, where they receive the care and nurture they need to grow up as productive citizens of their own country. With vibrant, original African music, dance routines and lifetransforming stories, the tour is indicative of the new generation of leaders emerging out of Watoto. Through the choirs Concert of Hope, we share a message of transformation by telling the story of Africas rescued orphans and women.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Dingman said that it was still at the towns advantage to continue applying for the grant, especially since the engineering plans have already completed and would be valid for a couple of years. Council member Darlene Madden told Dingman that the town was recently able to make contact with their legislative representatives, Rep. Marti Coley and Sen. Don Gaetz, when they came to visit Holmes County. Dingman praised them on knowing their representatives and to continue an open line of communication with them. They are such down-toearth people, Madden said. They seemed to know us and remembered all of our issues and all of our activities. They really seem to care about us. Madden also informed the council there was a concerned parent about the playground equipment and how close it was to the pond. The council discussed the possibility of looking into acquiring funds to build fence around the play equipment to discourage children playing the park from going to the pond unattended. Weve also got to remove the motorcycle from the playground, Town Council President Danny Powell said. The handle broke off, and it doesnt look like well be able to x it. Well also inspect the rest of the playground equipment to make sure theyre still safe too. Madden informed the council that if they go with Ultimate Production for sound equipment for $800 the Holmes County Health Department could give them a $600 grant or $600 off for designating several areas as smoke-free zones. We should also see about getting some items to raf e off, like a at screen TV, she said. Items like that will pay for themselves in raf es. Town Attorney Jeff Goodman said that he had nished the waiver to be signed by Ray Reynolds, representative for E. W. Carswell, in order for the town to use the plates to have more This is the Place books printed; the letter to property owners who have not started cleaning up their properties per their clean-up ordinances; and the towns mobile home ordinance to be ready for signing at next months town council meeting. What I need to know is what do you want me to do about this garbage collection ordinance, Goodman said. After much discussion, the town council explained they want a uni ed collection agency in Esto that the town could make money on with minimal risks. Goodman asked the town give him time to research ways of doing this and he would try to get a proposal to the council at the next town council meeting. The next regularly scheduled Esto Town Council meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5 at the Esto Town Hall. 5:45-7:15 p.m. Class location will be the health department conference room. Registration is not required. For more information, contact Traci Corbin at 547-8500 x263. Free childbirth classes available BONIFAY The Holmes County Health Department will offer a free child birth class for any woman who is pregnant. Women are encouraged to bring their partners with them (but not required) to the class. The class will consist of four sessions, and they will be held on Feb. 14, Feb. 21 and Feb. 28, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Holmes County Health Department Annex. The class will teach pregnant women about: What happens to a womans body before labor begins: Relaxation and breathing; different stages of labor; recognizing true labor verses false labor; massage during labor; different positions for labor; episiotomy; care of newborn/ procedures after delivery; breastfeeding and much more. To sign-up for the class, or if you have questions, call Healthy Start at 547-8684 X 16 or 19 and ask to speak to Gabriel Sanders, LPN or Valery Lawton HSCI. I think that is a good idea, said Mayor Lawrence Cloud. I think that would really save the city some money. Resident Everett Wiggins came before the council because his water bill increased by twice its normal amount. After some discussion, City Superintendent Jack Marell asked if he had recently had toilet issues and Wiggins said that his toilets handle had a tendency to stick. If it gets stuck and it lets water just run through it wont take any time at all to use that much water, said Marell. Resident Barbara Warden was also present because her water bill had tripled with no apparent cause. Marell agreed to come out and look at her meter. The Code Enforcement Ordinance was tabled until the next meeting. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Bonifay City Council is set for 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 25, at the Bonifay City Hall.

ALERT from page A1 The goal of the 2013 Severe Weather Awareness Week campaign is to promote preparedness for all types of hazards to Floridas citizens and communities. We are excited to bring Severe Weather Awareness Week to each region of the state as we work towards building a culture of preparedness in Florida through our students, said FDEM Director Bryan W. Koon. As we visit each school, we hope to reach beyond their doors and into the communities to ensure all of Floridas families and businesses are prepared for severe weather that can impact Florida any time of year. Games, prizes and special guests will highlight the importance of severe weather awareness in Florida as students learn how to recognize and be prepared for potential disasters that may impact them and their families. FDEM kicked off Severe Weather Awareness Week last week at the Florida State Fair in Tampa with Professor Nibmus Tinkermesiter of Kids Get a Plan and FDEM staff to spread the word about disaster preparedness and this weeks events.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A3 Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Those who also participated in Wear Red Day on Feb. 1 for Heart Health Awareness in the month of February, which was designated by the America Heart Association as America Heart Health Month, were Holmes County Health Department, Peoples Bank, Wells Fargo Bank and First Federal Bank. PHOTOS COURTESY OF H OLMES COUNTY H EALTH DE P ARTMENT By S. BRADY CALHOUN 747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun bcalhoun@pcnh.com B ON I FAY One of the things Holmes County Superintendent Eddie Dixon fears the most hap pened about an hour away from his schools last week when an armed man killed a bus driver and kidnapped a stu dent in Alabama. Dixon noted how close the incident was when discussing the need for school resource of cers at Holmes Countys seven schools. The district currently has one deputy who oats to each of the schools depending on where she is needed. She is rarely needed inside a school, Dixon said. Holmes County High School had like 6 ghts in the whole year, he added. However, Dixon believes a resource ofcer at ev ery school at Holmes county is warranted in order to deal with external threats, like the kind ofcials dealt with in Alabama. Dixon and most other super intendents in the state took part in the Florida Association of Dis trict School Superindent survey. Holmes County ofcials noted that they only had one school re source ofcer and they needed more. Other counties seemed to be in better shape, Frank lin and Jackson Countys both have full time school resource ofcers. Calhoun County states that it has 50 percent of its high schools, 40 percent of its middle schools and 10 percent of its el ementary schools covered by school resource ofcers. In Washington County, a group of parents from Vernon Elementary School, led by Tara Dockery, has been vocal in seek ing more school resource of cers for the Washington County School District, with 400 parents signing a petition asking that school safety be made a top priority. Bay County ofcials are look ing at ways to improve safety and they note that the district has a resource ofcer at every high school, half the middle schools and none at the elemen tary schools. A 38 person safety committee met for the rst time in late Janurary. Mike Jones, Bay Districts head of safety, said the group examined the best practices handed down to the district by education ofcials and state and federal law. Those rules cover everything from an active shooter, to gangs, trans portation, bullying and hazard ous materials. At future meetings the group will examine the resource ofcer program, training regimens, and other security practices, Jones said. Finally, they will spend some time trying to come up with more funding and better ways to keep students and em ployees safe. In Holmes County, even with out full time SROs, the district is doing what it can to make sure the schools are safe, Dixon said. He pointed out that local law enforcement ofcials respond to any school need very quickly. District ofcials are also trying to determine what they can do with the budget they will ultimately have for safety and performing emergency drills with employ ees for various circumstances. I would pray that would nev er happen but its something you have to be prepared for, Dixon said. Panhandle school districts work on safety WEAR RED DAY FOR HEART HEALTH A W ARENESS EDDIE DIXON

A friend acquired through his reading of Perrys Prattle has passed away. Mr. J. C. Grifn, a native of the Gap Pond region of Washington County, died on Jan. 19 in Vero Beach, Fla., his home for 37 years. He retired as general manager for Gracewood Fruit Company and was a member of Medulla Baptist Church of Lakeland, Fla. The Prattler cannot recall exactly when he received a call from J. C. telling of his enjoyment of reading the weekly column as a regular subscriber to the Washington County News. He received the local paper by U.S. Mail at his Vero Beach home. My guess is that he called me soon after The Heritage of Washington County Book was released in late June of 2006. Each time we talked, I learned more about him, including that his sister, Catherine Grifn Brock Worthngton, was married to my kinsman, the late Dan L. Brock, a former Washington County sheriff. Catherine is the mother of Chipley resident, Jane Brock Brown, as well as two sons, Tom Brock and William Brock, both living in Bay County. My newfound friend immediately expressed regret at not responding to the invitation to place his familys history in the above listed book. This has been a common response of a host of people who have made similar statements after the book was printed and after it was far too late of have a story included. Soon after getting acquainted with J.C. Grifn in telephone conversations, he extended a special invitation to me to come as a guest to the Grifn Family Reunion, an event of long duration held at Gap Pond Freewill Baptist Church, on the rst Sunday in July. Included in the invitation was Perry, feel free to bring a supply of the Washington County Books, as I just know you will be able to sell a good number of them. As the time for the annual reunion neared, other conversations were held with J.C. at which time he called many names connected to the family including McAdams, Fussell, Street, Rogers, Mallory, Finch, Grantham and Johns. He also explained that the ofcial historian for the Grifn family was Lucille Grifn Collins, who is married to Tom Alex Collins, who grew up in the Bethel Primitive Baptist Church community, the very area that I still call home. With all those familiar names, I knew that I would feel right at home and could see the potential for placing many of the newly printed history of the county. My expectations far exceeded the fondest dreams. All the participants welcomed me with open arms and book sales were brisk far beyond what I imagined. As time progressed, this gentlemen honored your writer greatly by insisting that my presence, interest and coverage of the Grifn Family Reunion gave it an impetus in growth not seen in a number of years. Soon, J. C. Griffin made it a point to contact me each time he made one of his fairly often family visits to the Panhandle, making contact with family members all the way from Wakulla County, Gulf County, Bay County and over to Freeport in Walton County. Lunch together became a part of our visiting. When he called, his message was Perry, are you about ready for one of those delicious hamburgers from KCs Pizza about Friday at noon? Of course the answer was always yes. The only member of his family that I recall meeting was his son, John Micheal (Mike) Griffin, who accompanied his father on one of the West Florida visits. On that occasion, our lunch was enjoyed at Castaway Seafood in Bonifay, owned and operated by Leaon Ward and his wife, Ann. We had the mullet as only the Wards can serve them, which I jokingly have labeled the Perry Wells way. On one of the many visits with my friend, we made a requested drive by my old home place and on the Bethel Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery, where he saw the gravesite of his late brother-in-law, Dan L. Brock. I made the statement that day that it was great to have a friendship so strong that your guest could be entertained in a graveyard in the middle of July. The following is an excerpt copied from the obituary obviously written by a family member, which sums up my feeling about my dear friend: J. C. was a kind man who treated everyone he ever crossed paths with as a true friend. He enjoyed people and always made them feel truly special whenever he was there. He loved to work and never felt satisfied until he put in a full day. Most of all, he loved his family. He was a committed husband, father and brother. The most important joy to him was to know that his wife and children were happy. He enjoyed visiting his family in the Panhandle of Florida. He made it a point to visit with everyone he possibly could when he made his pilgrimages to the annual Griffin Family Reunion. Surviving J. C.Griffin are his wife of 64 years, Bernice, sons John Michael (Erica) and Jason Andrew (Wendy). The one daughter is Jane Griffin Ford (Bobby). Brothers include Buford Griffin of Port St. Joe and Gene Griffin of Freeport. The sisters are Catherine Worthington of Chipley, Elvie Hardin of Jacksonville, Paulette Rogers of Port St. Joe and Shirley Street of Panama City. He was preceded in death by his sisters, Lena Ellisor and Orene Rossborough. He has nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Funeral services were held Jan. 26 at 1 p.m. at Tabernacle Baptist Church, Vero Beach, Fla., with burial in Crestlawn Cemetery and the Rev. David Foster officiating. All arrangements were entrusted to Thomas S. Lowther Funeral Home of Vero Beach. See you all next week. In Holmes Countys early development, the virgin pine forests were the incentive for many pioneer families coming to the area. Timber for lumber and the related naval stores industry were major contributors to the economy. But a later business boon in the 1930s was when Grief Brothers Cooperage Company brought its Heading Company to Bonifay. For my younger readers a cooper is one who makes containers of staves and metal bands and a cooperage is a place where such containers are made. Wooden barrels and kegs had many uses. The turpentine industry and the whiskey industry as well as the shipping industry relied on wooden barrels to ship their products. I can remember when nails came in kegs. Other hardware items were also shipped in kegs. Though the Bonifay Heading Company didnt make the barrels and kegs, they were an important part of the process. They made the barrel heads, the round piece with which the top of the barrel of gum or other product was sealed for shipment. They also made the staves with which the kegs were made. I dont know the number of employees the mill had, but through the years, many families were connected with the mill. I talked with Ray Brooks, Bruce Roberts, and Son Chance all of whom had contact with the mill. Both Rays parents had worked there and they had lived in a house near where the mill was located. Bruce Roberts is the son of the late John L. Roberts who was the mill Superintendent at the time of its closing in the mid 1950s. They also lived near the mill in what was known as the Sessoms house across from Jerkins Inc. Grace Donaldson worked there with Roberts as ofce receptionist/ typist and Minter Seig was the mill boss. Prior to Roberts as mill superintendent was Merrill Tucker. Son Chance said that he was in Mr. Tuckers boys Sunday School class at First Baptist Church. During that time, King Sandusky was the mill boss. At some point during its history, Bonifay Heading Co employed James Davis, a one-armed black man as night watchman. He also cut the kudzu around the property with a sling blade. Bruce told me that Davis lived at Happy Corner on Oklahoma Street near the railroad track. Son Chances father Jim Chance and his crew logged and delivered the wood to the mill where it was green cut and put into the drying kilns. Using mule teams and oxen teams, the logs were felled and trimmed in the woods; then, loaded on trucks. Often, the load would be so heavy the team or teams of oxen would have to help move the truck to rm ground where it could proceed under its own power. Mr. Dave Leavins and others worked with Mr. Chance. Sons uncle Rufe Devon was a timber cruiser for the company. Henry Bruner, the father of the late George Henry Bruner hauled away the crooks and sold them for whatever he could get for them. Some helpers of Mr. Bruners were Arthur D. And Hubert. Payne. Crooks were pieces of wood left from the stave cutting. Since these required curved boards, there were the outside crooks which were considered waste after the cuts were nished. The most dangerous jobs were for the sawyers who pushed the log pieces through the saws, particularly the jointer which had projections. Many of these workers lost a nger or ngers in this work as they guided the short pieces of timber with which the barrel heads were made. The saws and other equipment were run by steam produced by burning the debris from the barrel heads and nail keg staves. Numerous families came to and went from Bonifay to work at the mill. Many will remember the Hackneys and their large family of children who attended Bonifay schools. Other locals whom Son could recall were several Davis boys, Wesley and Joel Gardners father, Mila Steverson, Claud Redman, Jasper Evans, King Roan, Brown Burnham and his boys, Carl Braxton, and Mancil Newsome. These are just some of those who contributed to Bonifay and Holmes Countys economic development while nding gainful employment at home. The days of the timber and related industry are past, but it would be great if some other industry would discover the attributes of our community and bring some much needed jobs to our county. Our Chamber of Commerce continually strives to make that happen.

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 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.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section Whether it was beginners luck or skill, they got their sh. On Wednesday, a couple of Destins party boats went out for a day of shing and brought back quite a haul. The Swoop at HarborWalk Marina, with Capt. Chad Mott at the helm came in with 38 people and several stringers loaded with trigger sh, mingo, white snapper and lane snapper. And for some it was their rst trip out on the Gulf of Mexico. This was my lucky day, said rst-timer Ron Scott of Ontario. Scott landed a humongous trigger sh that weighed more than 7 pounds. I caught it on my rst cast, he said. It was excellent shing. Steve Cormany of Fort Wayne, Ind., another rst-timer, hauled in a big lane snapper. I had a good time, Cormany said. I even baited my own hook. The group was shing about 17 miles out in 160to 180-feet of water. Capt. Reid Phillips and his crew on the Destin Princess which docks at Fishing Fleet Marina, went out about 20 miles and pulled in their share of sh. It was a little slow at rst, Phillips said. We caught a lot of red snapper that we had to let go. But the shing picked up and they hauled in about 500-plus pounds of sh. In the mix were mingo, white snapper, lane snapper, trigger sh and amberine. We wound up with 10 to 12 lane snapper, Phillips said. It taste just like a red snapper. The difference is, anglers can keep a lane snapper as opposed to a red snapper. The fate of the red snapper season is in limbo right now. But the lane snapper, Its a bonus sh, Phillips said. Pulling in one of those bonus sh was Jim Strebral of Iowa. Strebral was a rst-timer on the Destin Princess This is what you call beginners luck, he said. He was shing along with his buddies Wayne Laing and Jim Steinbrech, also from Iowa. It was also Bob Cooper of Kentuckys rst time on the Princess. It was a great trip, he said. He lled his stringer with mingo, white snapper and trigger sh. There was another threesome that was quite proud of their catch. Firsttime shermen Wendell Wray and Steve Myers along with Terry Lovelace all from Illinois had quite the stringer. The group tried to go last year when they were in Destin, but they got stormed out. However, on Wednesday, they had a great time. I think Ill do it again, Myers said. So call it luck or skill the only thing that matters at the end of the day for these shermen is they got their sh. See you at the docks.

Fourth-grade teacher downs huge buck with a bow By STAN KIRKLAND Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission By her own account, 24-year-old Marissa Ballard is a girlie girl. The Grand Ridge native says she likes to wear nice clothes and go on dates with her husband, Dusty. Nevertheless, Marissa, who stands 5-feet, 5-inches, weighs 105 pounds and is a fourth-grade teacher at Sneads Elementary School, is an accomplished archery hunter. This season she showed she can hold her own with her male counterparts when she downed a huge typical 10-pointer in Jackson County that scored 130-2/8 Boone and Crockett (B&C) inches. It was her fourth deer in four years of hunting. She killed the big buck Oct. 27 while hunting with her father, Allen Chason, on property they lease for bow hunting. Ironically, husband Dusty, who normally is in the hunting mix most Saturdays, was in Jacksonville with relatives attending the Georgia-Florida football game. For Marissa, that day was a day of lows and highs. Dad and I got into our stands that afternoon and we hadnt been there too long before I looked and this really big buck came in about ve or six yards from the base of my ladder stand and started eating acorns, she said. I drew back and he turned his head and looked right at me and I froze. He just stared and stared, and then he turned and ran off. I felt awful cause I knew I had blown my chance. With acorns falling from several nearby oaks it wasnt long before Marissa had a chance at redemption when a group of bachelor bucks came in, the largest offering a perfect 14-yard broadside shot. I was so determined after letting the rst buck get away. I wasnt going to make another mistake, she said. And she didnt. The 190-pound buck ran 70 yards after a perfect shot. Allen, who was hunting several hundred yards away, said his cell phone rang about 5:30 and he could hear the excitement in Marissas voice as she whispered, I just shot a monster. As word spread about Marissas exceptional deer, she has gotten lots of comments. Most of the people who know me from school cant believe that I even hunt. But its the boys, especially the ones who hunt, who cant believe one of their teachers did this, she said. They think thats pretty special. Marissas buck has been entered into the Florida Buck Registry, a measuring program for the bigger bucks taken in Florida. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission maintains the registry. Sometime this spring the rack will be re-measured for the Pope and Young (P&Y) Club, which is the yardstick for all bow-killed big game animals in North America. There are several quali cations to make the P&Y registry for typical whitetails, including scoring 125 B&C inches or above. Assuming Marissas Jackson County buck is accepted by P&Y, and theres no apparent reason it shouldnt be, she will be only the 22nd Florida hunter to have accomplished this feat in Florida. And that is a big deal. CONTRIBUTED PHOTO Marissa Ballard poses with the 10-point buck she took down with a bow late last year.

SPORTS www.bonifaynow.com A Section By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @pcnhbradmilner bmilner@pcnh.com You could call Matt Anderson the Dean of Panhandle basketball coaching, and while that could be construed as another word for old hes not feeling a day past 30. The current Graceville mentor has spent half of his 50 years in the profession, one in which he said keeps him feeling younger than what the biological clock dictates. Anderson has been chosen along with Malone coach Steve Welch to lead the East boys basketball team in the ninth annual Halifax All-Star Classic on April 6 at Gulf Coast State College. Anderson was an assistant coach at Malone when Welch played his junior and senior high school seasons in the early 1990s. Its the second time both coaches will head an East team. Anderson joined then-Apalachicola coach Joe Hayes in the inaugural game in 2005 in pacing the East to a 102-82 win, while Welch coached the team to a 96-76 victory last year. Anderson and Welch remained friends long after Welch departed Malone. Upon his return, Welch has been the head coach for six seasons and has the Tigers primed for a run at the Class 1A state championship. Anderson is no stranger to titles at Malone, as he secured four straight championships from 1995-98. Anderson since has had stops at his alma mater, Ponce de Leon, as well as Bay, Chipola College and now Graceville. Anderson remembers Welch as a tenacious player with a willingness to learn. He listened well and tried to do what you said exactly like you said, Anderson said. He was very much a coachs player and he could really, really shoot the basketball. Anderson admitted Welch had limitations on the defensive end. He said Welch was aware of the shortcomings as well and coaches aided him by setting up the appropriate matchups for his skill set on the other end of the court. Anderson is well known for his defensive teachings and Welch has taken on the mantra with the Tigers, who cause havoc for opposing offenses. He was never my head coach, but he was always there to pull me aside and encourage me, Welch said. He still helps me today, if I need advice hes still there to give me advice. This will be the rst time Anderson and Welch have coached together. Thats a remarkable feat considering Anderson has a large rolodex of former assistants across the Panhandle. Two of them, Michael Grady and Mike Memmen, are head coaches at Bay and Bozeman, respectively, and also have coached in the allstar game. Welch said he would defer to Anderson if he wanted to be labeled the head coach of the East. There typically isnt an ofcial designation between head coach and assistant in the Halifax Classic. In fact, both admitted theres little to be done in coaching up some of the areas best senior basketball players. You didnt have to win to please anybody, there wasnt a lot of pressure, Welch said. The biggest thing I took from it was how much fun the kids had in the short amount of time they were together. They really bonded. Anderson enjoys not only coaching with good friends, but bringing together rivals with a combined goal. And while there was little pressure, it still felt good to win and earn bragging rights, he said. It was really good to coach the players you coached against during the season, Anderson said. The kids all knew how to play and they played for each other. Anderson and Graceville bowed out in the District 3-1A semi nals. He will have a few months of relaxing and traveling to watch games, likely Malone during its run, before leading the East. And if the next two months are anything like his 50 years they will crawl by slowly rather than whiz past. Im 50 going on 29 and to be honest with you, between teaching and coaching and working out and things like that I dont feel much different than when I was coaching at 27, Anderson said. If someone didnt keep up with it (his age) and tell me Im 50 I wouldnt know it. Anderson, Welch chosen to lead East boys By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @pcnhbradmilner bmilner@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Rutherford basketball coach Rhondie Ross was told Bay went more than 14 minutes with only a handful of baskets in Saturdays District 1-5A championship game. His response was quick. They went how long? Ross said with surprise. In truth, there has been little surprising with the Rams recent show of defensive dominance spanning more than a month. The latest display was on Saturday, when they defeated the Tornadoes 54-28 to secure Ross third straight district title. Rutherford ran its winning streak to 13 games since a Jan. 4 loss while holding the past 12 opponents to fewer than 50 points. It was the third time in the span the Rams (25-3) held a team to fewer than 30, including both foes in the 1-5A tournament. Rutherford had more offensive intensity on Saturday than in a turnover-plagued 44-23 win over Pensacola West Florida Tech a day earlier. The Rams also forced 20 turnovers for the second straight night. Ross pointed to the regular-season nale against Fort Walton Beach as the lynchpin in the streak. The Rams won 55-49 against a formidable foe and it showed how well they can shut down a potent offense. It was the perfect game to go into the tournament, Ross said. We had beaten so many teams by a large margin that I think we got bored and complacent. Good teams will help with that. Thats not taking anything away from West Florida Tech or Bay, he said, but he reiterated how it was important to maintain focus even with blowout victories in two prior meetings with the Tornadoes. Rutherfords defense weathered what was a potential momentum swing after one quarter and changed the complexion of the contest through the next 16 minutes. Bay (16-11) narrowed the gap to 18-12 at the end of the rst quarter with two baskets in the nal 30 seconds. The second and nal shot was a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Markeis Goodman. However, rather than challenge more the Tornadoes withered. Goodman scored Bays only basket of the second quarter, as Rutherford moved ahead 33-16 at halftime. The Tornadoes didnt score another eld goal until a Ryan Norwood 3pointer with 1:30 left to play in the third quarter. By then the game was 42-20 and comfortably in Rutherfords favor. When you have momentum you have to score, Bay coach Michael Grady said. We missed some easy put backs, and against a team like Rutherford you need all the points you can get. We had intensity, we just didnt do anything with it. Rutherford matched Bay with a buzzer beater by Keith Arts to end the rst half. The Rams went on to limit Bay to less than 10 points in each of the nal two quarters for the victory. Khaliel Spearman led the Rams with 13 points, while senior Kiki Williamson added 10 and Gabriel Steele and Alex Banks eight each. Im so happy and proud for our seniors, Ross said. People dont realize how much work they put in. They dont realize how much work goes into a basketball game. I call it a production and it takes everyone. Demetrius Rivers was Bays lone doublegure scorer with 11 points. The Tornadoes will travel to Tallahassee Rickards in the Region 1-5A opener on Thursday. Rutherford earned the right to host at least one regional game. It will do so against Live Oak Suwannee on Thursday.

DISTRICT 4-1A West Gadsden 54, Bozeman 40 SANTA ROSA BEACH It was a carbon copy of Fridays game, but unfortunately for Bozeman the Bucks saw the ip side this time in the championship game at South Walton High School. Bozeman led 21-18 at halftime, but West Gadsden rallied with an 18-4 spurt in the third quarter as Brandon Shingles had 14 of his game-high 33 points. In the semi nals against Port St. Joe, Bozeman erased a four-point halftime de cit with a 14-2 third-quarter run. Herbie Harrell and Brandon Suttles each had eight points for the Bucks and Christian Flowers seven points and 10 rebounds. Bozeman, 19-8, plays at Cottondale, a 42-40 winner over Sneads in the District 3-1A championship, in a Region 2-1A semi nal on Feb. 19. West Gadsden will host Sneads.

I would like to begin by saying thank you to our supportive leadership that we have at Poplar Springs, said Junior Beta Sponsor Lacy Brown. Mr. Wells and Mrs. Watford are always supportive and encourag ing with whatever the proj ect may be. Their support has been essential in our success as a group. We are also blessed to have numerous help ing parents involved, she said. Whether it was paint ing, collecting shirt orders, dreaming up skits and out ts, whatever needed doing, these parents helped. Im ever grateful for them. The students will be hon ored at the Poplar Springs school on Feb. 22. On this day they will showcase their song from songfest. Cameron, our state president, will give his speech, and his campaign skit will be presented. Liv ing literature and all arts, crafts, and projects will be displayed, Brown said. The time is not yet decided, but I will send an invitation to all of you later. I hope you will be there. Brown announced the awards presented to the Poplar Springs Junior Beta. State President was giv en to Cameron King; PSHS won a third-place banner award; Rauston Tate won rst place in black and white photography; Levi Collins won rst place in digitally enhanced photog raphy; Robin Tate won rst place in hand-made jewelry; PSHS won third place in liv ing literature; Rouston Tate won rst place in recyclable art; PSHS won rst place in scrapbook; PSHS won rst place in campaign skit and speech for Cameron King; PSHS won third place in songfest; PSHS won third place in spotlight your club; John David Watford won rst place in T-shirt design; Brayden Smith won sec ond place in woodworking; Kassyn Williams won third place in wreath; and PSHS won second place in arts and crafts sweepstakes.

Without them, we would not be able to go and compete at the state level. They work really hard all year to prepare for the state competition. She said 19 of the 32 members in Senior Beta went to the state convention along with 10 adults and an nounced what the Senior Betas placed.

I just want to say that this is a great group of kids. They always behave in a manner that represents Poplar Springs well. The Junior and Senior Beta Club brought in exam ples of their placed items, such as banners and art. I love their banners, Chairman Rusty Williams said. Theyre a ne exam ple of what hard work and dedication looks like. Board member Shirley Owens said she has been involved in Beta for quite a while as a former sponsor. You can tell that its the kids hard work that brought them this far, not the sponsors, Owens said. Im very proud of the Beta Club. Superintendent Eddie Dixon said he was proud of them as well. Its really a neat thing to watch them interact with other schools, and because of their hard work, were second to none, Dixon said. I was proud to say thats our kids; thats our county. Speaking from the public was resident Connie Black, who asked the board of the progress for getting art and music studies into Bethle hem High School. Williams said the school district was working on ways to bring those pro grams in. You have money for an assistant deputy super intendent but not for the kids? Black said. Dixon said there was very little extra money put into position of assistant deputy superintendent and that the title itself was new, but the position was not. Its an additional title to an already existing one, which is the personnel di rector, Dixon said. This just gives him the authority to act in my stead if anything should happen to me. Jim Goodman holds the position of assistant deputy superintendent, and Dixon said the previous posi tion Goodman held was done away with, and Good man took on the new posi tion, which is classied as administrative. Owens asked what the board was doing about updating safety issues because of recent events involving school safety breaches both on campus and in transportation. Dixon said the Depart ment of Education had ad vised that none of the local schools or school boards do anything until their plans have been updated and approved. Board member Debbie Kolmetz asked if all of the principals in Holmes Coun ty were certied. Dixon replied that those who are not are in the pro cess of being certied. Williams encouraged all residents to contact their local representatives to re quest additional funding for the schools. Its through additional funding that well be able to add programs such as the music and the arts to schools like Bethlehem, Williams said. Its through the addition of many voices that were able to be heard in our legislature. So help Holmes County be heard.

Properly vaccinating your pet is an important part of pet care because vaccines can potentially help protect your pet against some serious health conditions and diseases. Vaccines are a suspension of altered microorganisms, which will prevent, lessen or treat disease without causing the disease, said Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Vaccines are considered the cornerstone of preventive medicine. Knowing the different types of vaccinations and how they work can help pet owners provide the best care for their animals. There are live, killed, modi ed live and recombinant vaccinations, Stickney said. By exposing the immune system to bacteria or viruses that are genetically similar to the ones that will cause disease, the immune system will develop antibodies that protect the body when it encounters the actual disease-causing organism. Some pet vaccines can be purchased overthe-counter and given by non-veterinarians, Stickney said. However, there may be quality control issues with vaccines if you are not familiar with the correct way to store and use them. By law, certain vaccines, like the rabies vaccine, can only be given by your veterinarian, Stickney said. Your veterinarian is also the best person to determine which vaccines your pet needs and how frequently they should be administered. All puppies and kittens should receive the rabies vaccine at three months of age and again at one year of age. Vaccination schedules vary depending on the area of the country you are in and the prevalence of different diseases in that area, Stickney said. Puppies should be vaccinated for distemper virus, adenovirus, parvovirus and parain uenza, while kittens should be vaccinated for viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia. Other vaccinations may also be recommended depending on the lifestyle of your pet. Booster shots are necessary in puppies and kittens to overcome maternal immunity, where the antibodies that the puppies and kittens acquired from their mother provide some protection but eventually break down, Stickney said. Vaccines are ineffective in the face of maternal immunity; therefore the puppy and kitten vaccine series is necessary to protect the pet during the time when the maternal immunity disappears. Booster shots remind the immune system of diseases it is supposed to protect against. The frequency at which adult animals should receive booster vaccines has been a topic of debate among veterinarians for years. Increasingly, we have evidence that most vaccines do not need to be boosted every year and that the risk of an animal catching certain diseases decreases with age. Your veterinarian will be able to tailor a vaccine protocol to the speci c lifestyle of your pet. No vaccine is 100 percent effective, Stickney said. It is possible to overwhelm any vaccine and immune system with exposure to enough diseasecausing organisms. Additionally, adverse reactions can occur from vaccinations. These reactions are most likely to occur the second time an animal receives a vaccine. They usually occur within a few minutes to six hours of vaccination. There are two types of reactions commonly seen, anaphylactic and delayed hypersensitivity, Stickney said. Delayed hypersensitivity reactions are more common and less serious. The pet becomes itchy and the face and ears swell. These reactions can usually be treated with antihistamines. Anaphylactic reactions are less common and are serious and lifethreatening, Stickney said. The animal collapses and goes into shock. Epinephrine and intravenous uids are necessary to treat the animal. If your pet ever had an allergic reaction to a vaccine, it is important to let your veterinarian know. Even pets that are allergic to a speci c vaccine typically have no problems if they are treated with antihistamines before vaccinations. Remember, vaccines are health products that signal protective immune responses in your pet. Your veterinarian can best guide you in the use and scheduling of vaccinations for your pet.

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.

Actually, the only romantic things about me are my love handles, which is why I have spent so much energy developing them over the years. You think somebody would appreciate them. For some people, romance is an easy, if not natural thing. Others, like me, nd it complicated and elusive. It is not that men are less romantic than women are; they just have different ideas of romance. For most women, romance is owers and candy in heart shaped boxes. For men it is a Big Mac with fries and a soda ... and SUPER SIZE it, please. Why are women so complicated and men so simple? I do not think that came out the way I meant it. If it were not for women, romance would have died a long time ago. There is nothing quite like springtime with a hint of romance in the air with a delicate dash of chivalry. People from Hollywood try to de ne romance for us, but their idea of romance is raw sex and lurid lust. Hollywooders would not know romance if it nibbled on their ears. Romance is not a ing in the spring, but a lifelong relationship, experiencing all the ups and downs of life together and no growing apart! There is no picture quite as refreshing as a couple still together after all those years of turmoil and temerity. The easiest thing in all the world is to fall in love for a few years and then, when it gets dif cult, bail out. What kind of thing is that? Ah, but to see a couple married for 50 years or more, now that is the epitome of real romance. Ill have you know that romance has not been a stranger at the parsonage. I met my wife (actually, she wasnt my wife then) when I went away to Bible college in 1970. At the time, I was functionally romance challenged. Before I left home for college, I prayed for a wife. I had the good sense to know that a minister needs a good wife to support him in the ministry. I prayed something like this, Father, I need a good wife, and I dont know how to go about it. Let the rst single girl I meet at Bible college be the wife of Your choosing. Now, I know this is a crazy and dangerous prayer to make. Some would take the high road of romance, but I took the low road of prayer. I may have been a bit desperate, but nobody could doubt my earnestness. I also gured that prayer was a lot cheaper than dating. After all, I am a Pennsylvania Dutchman. Nevertheless, I prayed for a wife. The day of my arrival on campus came and found me a bit anxious. I remembered my prayer and wondered just how God would answer it. My parents took me to the college, which was some 500 miles from home; good planning on my part the mens dorm, I gured I was safe. I planned to avoid all contact with the opposite sex as long as possible. But just as we pulled into the mens dorm parking lot, a young woman exited from the mens dorm. Remembering my prayer, I immediately amended it. God, this doesnt count. Ive not stepped out of the car yet. Have you ever noticed that God has a marvelous sense of humor? The young woman emerging from the mens dorm de ed description. Do you remember when women rolled their hair up in big rollers? Well, this young woman had rolled her hair up in tomato cans! Nothing prepared me for such a sight. She actually looked like some space alien. I do not know what she was wearing or even what she looked like. All I could see were those tomato cans on her head. At the time, I did not know much about romance, but I knew this was not it. The next few days I did everything to avoid the womens dorm for fear I would run into her. Whenever I did see her, I crossed to the other side of the street. But the more I tried to avoid her, the more I ran into her. Prayer makes strange partners. Thinking I was making progress in my plan of avoidance, the inevitable happened. One week after arrival, my roommate invited me to come along with him and his girlfriend to a restaurant. Being the neurotic naive that I am, I said, Sure, Id love to come along. After all, I had nothing else to do and it seemed like some fun. When my roommate went to the womens dorm to pick up his girlfriend, who do you suppose was standing with his girlfriend waiting? Thats right. The young woman with the tin cans on her head. Would you believe it? The young woman with the tin cans turned out to be the sister of my roommate. It was a whirlwind romance. I met her in September and in February she asked me to marry her. In August of that year, I found myself at a church altar mumbling, do. The Bible makes this promise: Whoso ndeth a wife ndeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD (Proverbs 18:22 KJV). A good wife is the nd of a lifetime, as long as God is in charge of the search. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

There were 260 communities applying for that grant, and all of them scored higher points than you, to be blunt, Dingman said. I assure you though, there was nothing you could do to score any higher than you did. I must say that the time and effort that you did as a town was impressive to raise your scores, it just wasnt enough. Dingman explained that scoring was based aspects such as the income of the population, number of minorities employed by the town, health and safety of the water supply and so on. For the income of the population, it is still based on the census done in 2000, and I have a feeling that the residents exaggerated on their income on that census, Dingman said. The 2010 census results wont be used until September of this year, however I dont think the trend will have changed. The minority employment rate for the town would have to be above a certain percentage in comparison to the countys for the points to make a signi cant difference, he said. Another way to increase your points was to get a letter from the Department of Environmental Protection stating that youd have to update your water system for the health and well being of your residents, he said. However, since your water is still at safe drinking levels and youre only replacing existing pipes, that was not an option.Esto misses grant after application score poor 50www.bonifaynow.comWednesday, FEBRUARY 13 2013 Volume 122, Number 44For the latest breaking news, visitBONIFAYNOW.COMPhone: 850-547-9414 Web site: bonifaynow.com Fax: 850-547-9418 INDEXMarriages & Divorces ............A2 Opinion ................................A4 Outdoors ..............................A6 Sports ..................................A7 Extra ....................................B1 Faith ....................................B4 Obituaries ............................B5 Classi eds ............................B7 IN BRIEFRock-n-Roll pours down on Holmes County B1 Brian Free & Assurance to perform ESTO The gospel group Brian Free & Assurance will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at Mount Zion Independent Baptist Church in Esto.

The tour is continuing with a stop in Bonifay at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Carmel Assembly of God Church. The Watoto Childrens Choir acts as Watoto ambassadors to raise awareness about the plight of the orphaned and vulnerable children of Africa. Watoto is a holistic child care solution initiated to serve the dire needs of Africa and her people. Each of the children in the choir has suffered the loss of one or both parents. They live in Watoto Childrens Villages, where they receive the care and nurture they need to grow up as productive citizens of their own country. With vibrant, original African music, dance routines and lifetransforming stories, the tour is indicative of the new generation of leaders emerging out of Watoto. Through the choirs Concert of Hope, we share a message of transformation by telling the story of Africas rescued orphans and women. We hope to reach out to audiences with the message of Christs healing power, said Gary Skinner, Watoto founder.Watoto Childrens Choir to perform See CHOIR A2 See ESTO A2 See BRIEF A2By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY The Bonifay City Council approved the citys Notice of City Election on Monday, which provides for an annual election of of cers to be held on the fourth Tuesday in March every year.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, February 13, 2013Dingman said that it was still at the towns advantage to continue applying for the grant, especially since the engineering plans have already completed and would be valid for a couple of years. Council member Darlene Madden told Dingman that the town was recently able to make contact with their legislative representatives, Rep. Marti Coley and Sen. Don Gaetz, when they came to visit Holmes County. Dingman praised them on knowing their representatives and to continue an open line of communication with them. They are such down-toearth people, Madden said. They seemed to know us and remembered all of our issues and all of our activities. They really seem to care about us. Madden also informed the council there was a concerned parent about the playground equipment and how close it was to the pond. The council discussed the possibility of looking into acquiring funds to build fence around the play equipment to discourage children playing the park from going to the pond unattended. Weve also got to remove the motorcycle from the playground, Town Council President Danny Powell said. The handle broke off, and it doesnt look like well be able to x it. Well also inspect the rest of the playground equipment to make sure theyre still safe too. Madden informed the council that if they go with Ultimate Production for sound equipment for $800 the Holmes County Health Department could give them a $600 grant or $600 off for designating several areas as smoke-free zones. We should also see about getting some items to raf e off, like a at screen TV, she said. Items like that will pay for themselves in raf es. Town Attorney Jeff Goodman said that he had nished the waiver to be signed by Ray Reynolds, representative for E. W. Carswell, in order for the town to use the plates to have more This is the Place books printed; the letter to property owners who have not started cleaning up their properties per their clean-up ordinances; and the towns mobile home ordinance to be ready for signing at next months town council meeting. What I need to know is what do you want me to do about this garbage collection ordinance, Goodman said. After much discussion, the town council explained they want a uni ed collection agency in Esto that the town could make money on with minimal risks. Goodman asked the town give him time to research ways of doing this and he would try to get a proposal to the council at the next town council meeting. The next regularly scheduled Esto Town Council meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5 at the Esto Town Hall.5:45-7:15 p.m. Class location will be the health department conference room.

I think that would really save the city some money. Resident Everett Wiggins came before the council because his water bill increased by twice its normal amount. After some discussion, City Superintendent Jack Marell asked if he had recently had toilet issues and Wiggins said that his toilets handle had a tendency to stick. If it gets stuck and it lets water just run through it wont take any time at all to use that much water, said Marell. Resident Barbara Warden was also present because her water bill had tripled with no apparent cause. Marell agreed to come out and look at her meter. The Code Enforcement Ordinance was tabled until the next meeting. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Bonifay City Council is set for 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 25, at the Bonifay City Hall.

We are excited to bring Severe Weather Awareness Week to each region of the state as we work towards building a culture of preparedness in Florida through our students, said FDEM Director Bryan W. Koon. As we visit each school, we hope to reach beyond their doors and into the communities to ensure all of Floridas families and businesses are prepared for severe weather that can impact Florida any time of year. Games, prizes and special guests will highlight the importance of severe weather awareness in Florida as students learn how to recognize and be prepared for potential disasters that may impact them and their families. FDEM kicked off Severe Weather Awareness Week last week at the Florida State Fair in Tampa with Professor Nibmus Tinkermesiter of Kids Get a Plan and FDEM staff to spread the word about disaster preparedness and this weeks events.

BRADY CALHOUN747-5075 | @sbradycalhoun bcalhoun@pcnh.com BON O N IFAY FAY One of the things Holmes County Superintendent Eddie Dixon fears the most happened about an hour away from his schools last week when an armed man killed a bus driver and kidnapped a student in Alabama. Dixon noted how close the incident was when discussing the need for school resource ofcers at Holmes Countys seven schools. The district currently has one deputy who oats to each of the schools depending on where she is needed. She is rarely needed inside a school, Dixon said. Holmes County High School had like 6 ghts in the whole year, he added. However, Dixon believes a resource ofcer at every school at Holmes county is warranted in order to deal with external threats, like the kind ofcials dealt with in Alabama. Dixon and most other superintendents in the state took part in the Florida Association of District School Superindent survey. Holmes County ofcials noted that they only had one school resource ofcer and they needed more. Other counties seemed to be in better shape, Franklin and Jackson Countys both have full time school resource ofcers. Calhoun County states that it has 50 percent of its high schools, 40 percent of its middle schools and 10 percent of its elementary schools covered by school resource ofcers. In Washington County, a group of parents from Vernon Elementary School, led by Tara Dockery, has been vocal in seeking more school resource ofcers for the Washington County School District, with 400 parents signing a petition asking that school safety be made a top priority. Bay County ofcials are looking at ways to improve safety and they note that the district has a resource ofcer at every high school, half the middle schools and none at the elementary schools. A 38 person safety committee met for the rst time in late Janurary. Mike Jones, Bay Districts head of safety, said the group examined the best practices handed down to the district by education ofcials and state and federal law. Those rules cover everything from an active shooter, to gangs, transportation, bullying and hazardous materials. At future meetings the group will examine the resource ofcer program, training regimens, and other security practices, Jones said. Finally, they will spend some time trying to come up with more funding and better ways to keep students and employees safe. In Holmes County, even without full time SROs, the district is doing what it can to make sure the schools are safe, Dixon said. He pointed out that local law enforcement ofcials respond to any school need very quickly. District ofcials are also trying to determine what they can do with the budget they will ultimately have for safety and performing emergency drills with employees for various circumstances. I would pray that would never happen but its something you have to be prepared for, Dixon said.

A friend acquired through his reading of Perrys Prattle has passed away. Mr. J. C. Grifn, a native of the Gap Pond region of Washington County, died on Jan. 19 in Vero Beach, Fla., his home for 37 years. He retired as general manager for Gracewood Fruit Company and was a member of Medulla Baptist Church of Lakeland, Fla. The Prattler cannot recall exactly when he received a call from J. C. telling of his enjoyment of reading the weekly column as a regular subscriber to the Washington County News. He received the local paper by U.S. Mail at his Vero Beach home. My guess is that he called me soon after The Heritage of Washington County Book was released in late June of 2006. Each time we talked, I learned more about him, including that his sister, Catherine Grifn Brock Worthngton, was married to my kinsman, the late Dan L. Brock, a former Washington County sheriff. Catherine is the mother of Chipley resident, Jane Brock Brown, as well as two sons, Tom Brock and William Brock, both living in Bay County. My newfound friend immediately expressed regret at not responding to the invitation to place his familys history in the above listed book. This has been a common response of a host of people who have made similar statements after the book was printed and after it was far too late of have a story included. Soon after getting acquainted with J.C. Grifn in telephone conversations, he extended a special invitation to me to come as a guest to the Grifn Family Reunion, an event of long duration held at Gap Pond Freewill Baptist Church, on the rst Sunday in July. Included in the invitation was Perry, feel free to bring a supply of the Washington County Books, as I just know you will be able to sell a good number of them. As the time for the annual reunion neared, other conversations were held with J.C. at which time he called many names connected to the family including McAdams, Fussell, Street, Rogers, Mallory, Finch, Grantham and Johns. He also explained that the ofcial historian for the Grifn family was Lucille Grifn Collins, who is married to Tom Alex Collins, who grew up in the Bethel Primitive Baptist Church community, the very area that I still call home. With all those familiar names, I knew that I would feel right at home and could see the potential for placing many of the newly printed history of the county. My expectations far exceeded the fondest dreams. All the participants welcomed me with open arms and book sales were brisk far beyond what I imagined. As time progressed, this gentlemen honored your writer greatly by insisting that my presence, interest and coverage of the Grifn Family Reunion gave it an impetus in growth not seen in a number of years. Soon, J. C. Griffin made it a point to contact me each time he made one of his fairly often family visits to the Panhandle, making contact with family members all the way from Wakulla County, Gulf County, Bay County and over to Freeport in Walton County. Lunch together became a part of our visiting. When he called, his message was Perry, are you about ready for one of those delicious hamburgers from KCs Pizza about Friday at noon? Of course the answer was always yes. The only member of his family that I recall meeting was his son, John Micheal (Mike) Griffin, who accompanied his father on one of the West Florida visits. On that occasion, our lunch was enjoyed at Castaway Seafood in Bonifay, owned and operated by Leaon Ward and his wife, Ann. We had the mullet as only the Wards can serve them, which I jokingly have labeled the Perry Wells way. On one of the many visits with my friend, we made a requested drive by my old home place and on the Bethel Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery, where he saw the gravesite of his late brother-in-law, Dan L. Brock. I made the statement that day that it was great to have a friendship so strong that your guest could be entertained in a graveyard in the middle of July. The following is an excerpt copied from the obituary obviously written by a family member, which sums up my feeling about my dear friend: J. C. was a kind man who treated everyone he ever crossed paths with as a true friend. He enjoyed people and always made them feel truly special whenever he was there. He loved to work and never felt satisfied until he put in a full day. Most of all, he loved his family. He was a committed husband, father and brother. The most important joy to him was to know that his wife and children were happy. He enjoyed visiting his family in the Panhandle of Florida. He made it a point to visit with everyone he possibly could when he made his pilgrimages to the annual Griffin Family Reunion. Surviving J. C.Griffin are his wife of 64 years, Bernice, sons John Michael (Erica) and Jason Andrew (Wendy). The one daughter is Jane Griffin Ford (Bobby). Brothers include Buford Griffin of Port St. Joe and Gene Griffin of Freeport. The sisters are Catherine Worthington of Chipley, Elvie Hardin of Jacksonville, Paulette Rogers of Port St. Joe and Shirley Street of Panama City. He was preceded in death by his sisters, Lena Ellisor and Orene Rossborough. He has nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Funeral services were held Jan. 26 at 1 p.m. at Tabernacle Baptist Church, Vero Beach, Fla., with burial in Crestlawn Cemetery and the Rev. David Foster officiating. All arrangements were entrusted to Thomas S. Lowther Funeral Home of Vero Beach. See you all next week. In Holmes Countys early development, the virgin pine forests were the incentive for many pioneer families coming to the area. Timber for lumber and the related naval stores industry were major contributors to the economy. But a later business boon in the 1930s was when Grief Brothers Cooperage Company brought its Heading Company to Bonifay. For my younger readers a cooper is one who makes containers of staves and metal bands and a cooperage is a place where such containers are made. Wooden barrels and kegs had many uses. The turpentine industry and the whiskey industry as well as the shipping industry relied on wooden barrels to ship their products. I can remember when nails came in kegs. Other hardware items were also shipped in kegs. Though the Bonifay Heading Company didnt make the barrels and kegs, they were an important part of the process. They made the barrel heads, the round piece with which the top of the barrel of gum or other product was sealed for shipment. They also made the staves with which the kegs were made. I dont know the number of employees the mill had, but through the years, many families were connected with the mill. I talked with Ray Brooks, Bruce Roberts, and Son Chance all of whom had contact with the mill. Both Rays parents had worked there and they had lived in a house near where the mill was located. Bruce Roberts is the son of the late John L. Roberts who was the mill Superintendent at the time of its closing in the mid 1950s. They also lived near the mill in what was known as the Sessoms house across from Jerkins Inc. Grace Donaldson worked there with Roberts as ofce receptionist/ typist and Minter Seig was the mill boss. Prior to Roberts as mill superintendent was Merrill Tucker. Son Chance said that he was in Mr. Tuckers boys Sunday School class at First Baptist Church. During that time, King Sandusky was the mill boss. At some point during its history, Bonifay Heading Co employed James Davis, a one-armed black man as night watchman. He also cut the kudzu around the property with a sling blade. Bruce told me that Davis lived at Happy Corner on Oklahoma Street near the railroad track. Son Chances father Jim Chance and his crew logged and delivered the wood to the mill where it was green cut and put into the drying kilns. Using mule teams and oxen teams, the logs were felled and trimmed in the woods; then, loaded on trucks. Often, the load would be so heavy the team or teams of oxen would have to help move the truck to rm ground where it could proceed under its own power. Mr. Dave Leavins and others worked with Mr. Chance. Sons uncle Rufe Devon was a timber cruiser for the company. Henry Bruner, the father of the late George Henry Bruner hauled away the crooks and sold them for whatever he could get for them. Some helpers of Mr. Bruners were Arthur D. And Hubert. Payne. Crooks were pieces of wood left from the stave cutting. Since these required curved boards, there were the outside crooks which were considered waste after the cuts were nished. The most dangerous jobs were for the sawyers who pushed the log pieces through the saws, particularly the jointer which had projections. Many of these workers lost a nger or ngers in this work as they guided the short pieces of timber with which the barrel heads were made. The saws and other equipment were run by steam produced by burning the debris from the barrel heads and nail keg staves. Numerous families came to and went from Bonifay to work at the mill. Many will remember the Hackneys and their large family of children who attended Bonifay schools. Other locals whom Son could recall were several Davis boys, Wesley and Joel Gardners father, Mila Steverson, Claud Redman, Jasper Evans, King Roan, Brown Burnham and his boys, Carl Braxton, and Mancil Newsome. These are just some of those who contributed to Bonifay and Holmes Countys economic development while nding gainful employment at home. The days of the timber and related industry are past, but it would be great if some other industry would discover the attributes of our community and bring some much needed jobs to our county. Our Chamber of Commerce continually strives to make that happen.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection Whether it was beginners luck or skill, they got their sh. On Wednesday, a couple of Destins party boats went out for a day of shing and brought back quite a haul. The Swoop at HarborWalk Marina, with Capt. Chad Mott at the helm came in with 38 people and several stringers loaded with trigger sh, mingo, white snapper and lane snapper. And for some it was their rst trip out on the Gulf of Mexico. This was my lucky day, said rst-timer Ron Scott of Ontario. Scott landed a humongous trigger sh that weighed more than 7 pounds. I caught it on my rst cast, he said. It was excellent shing. Steve Cormany of Fort Wayne, Ind., another rst-timer, hauled in a big lane snapper. I had a good time, Cormany said. I even baited my own hook. The group was shing about 17 miles out in 160to 180-feet of water. Capt. Reid Phillips and his crew on the Destin Princess which docks at Fishing Fleet Marina, went out about 20 miles and pulled in their share of sh. It was a little slow at rst, Phillips said. We caught a lot of red snapper that we had to let go. But the shing picked up and they hauled in about 500-plus pounds of sh. In the mix were mingo, white snapper, lane snapper, trigger sh and amberine. We wound up with 10 to 12 lane snapper, Phillips said. It taste just like a red snapper. The difference is, anglers can keep a lane snapper as opposed to a red snapper. The fate of the red snapper season is in limbo right now. But the lane snapper, Its a bonus sh, Phillips said. Pulling in one of those bonus sh was Jim Strebral of Iowa. Strebral was a rst-timer on the Destin Princess This is what you call beginners luck, he said. He was shing along with his buddies Wayne Laing and Jim Steinbrech, also from Iowa. It was also Bob Cooper of Kentuckys rst time on the Princess. It was a great trip, he said. He lled his stringer with mingo, white snapper and trigger sh. There was another threesome that was quite proud of their catch. Firsttime shermen Wendell Wray and Steve Myers along with Terry Lovelace all from Illinois had quite the stringer. The group tried to go last year when they were in Destin, but they got stormed out. However, on Wednesday, they had a great time. I think Ill do it again, Myers said. So call it luck or skill the only thing that matters at the end of the day for these shermen is they got their sh. See you at the docks.First time Gulf fishermen strike it big in Destin TINA HARBUCKFish Flash My lucky day PHOTOS BY TINA HARBUCK | The LogFirst-time Gulf sherman Ron Scott of Ontario shows off a trigger sh he caught while shing aboard the Swoop on Wednesday.

The Grand Ridge native says she likes to wear nice clothes and go on dates with her husband, Dusty. Nevertheless, Marissa, who stands 5-feet, 5-inches, weighs 105 pounds and is a fourth-grade teacher at Sneads Elementary School, is an accomplished archery hunter. This season she showed she can hold her own with her male counterparts when she downed a huge typical 10-pointer in Jackson County that scored 130-2/8 Boone and Crockett (B&C) inches. It was her fourth deer in four years of hunting. She killed the big buck Oct. 27 while hunting with her father, Allen Chason, on property they lease for bow hunting. Ironically, husband Dusty, who normally is in the hunting mix most Saturdays, was in Jacksonville with relatives attending the Georgia-Florida football game. For Marissa, that day was a day of lows and highs. Dad and I got into our stands that afternoon and we hadnt been there too long before I looked and this really big buck came in about ve or six yards from the base of my ladder stand and started eating acorns, she said. I drew back and he turned his head and looked right at me and I froze. He just stared and stared, and then he turned and ran off. I felt awful cause I knew I had blown my chance. With acorns falling from several nearby oaks it wasnt long before Marissa had a chance at redemption when a group of bachelor bucks came in, the largest offering a perfect 14-yard broadside shot. I was so determined after letting the rst buck get away. I wasnt going to make another mistake, she said. And she didnt. The 190-pound buck ran 70 yards after a perfect shot. Allen, who was hunting several hundred yards away, said his cell phone rang about 5:30 and he could hear the excitement in Marissas voice as she whispered, I just shot a monster. As word spread about Marissas exceptional deer, she has gotten lots of comments. Most of the people who know me from school cant believe that I even hunt. But its the boys, especially the ones who hunt, who cant believe one of their teachers did this, she said. They think thats pretty special. Marissas buck has been entered into the Florida Buck Registry, a measuring program for the bigger bucks taken in Florida. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission maintains the registry. Sometime this spring the rack will be re-measured for the Pope and Young (P&Y) Club, which is the yardstick for all bow-killed big game animals in North America. There are several quali cations to make the P&Y registry for typical whitetails, including scoring 125 B&C inches or above. Assuming Marissas Jackson County buck is accepted by P&Y, and theres no apparent reason it shouldnt be, she will be only the 22nd Florida hunter to have accomplished this feat in Florida. And that is a big deal.CONTRIBUTED PHOTOMarissa Ballard poses with the 10-point buck she took down with a bow late last year.

SPORTS www.bonifaynow.com ASectionBy BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @pcnhbradmilner bmilner@pcnh.com You could call Matt Anderson the Dean of Panhandle basketball coaching, and while that could be construed as another word for old hes not feeling a day past 30. The current Graceville mentor has spent half of his 50 years in the profession, one in which he said keeps him feeling younger than what the biological clock dictates. Anderson has been chosen along with Malone coach Steve Welch to lead the East boys basketball team in the ninth annual Halifax All-Star Classic on April 6 at Gulf Coast State College. Anderson was an assistant coach at Malone when Welch played his junior and senior high school seasons in the early 1990s. Its the second time both coaches will head an East team. Anderson joined then-Apalachicola coach Joe Hayes in the inaugural game in 2005 in pacing the East to a 102-82 win, while Welch coached the team to a 96-76 victory last year. Anderson and Welch remained friends long after Welch departed Malone. Upon his return, Welch has been the head coach for six seasons and has the Tigers primed for a run at the Class 1A state championship. Anderson is no stranger to titles at Malone, as he secured four straight championships from 1995-98. Anderson since has had stops at his alma mater, Ponce de Leon, as well as Bay, Chipola College and now Graceville. Anderson remembers Welch as a tenacious player with a willingness to learn. He listened well and tried to do what you said exactly like you said, Anderson said. He was very much a coachs player and he could really, really shoot the basketball. Anderson admitted Welch had limitations on the defensive end. He said Welch was aware of the shortcomings as well and coaches aided him by setting up the appropriate matchups for his skill set on the other end of the court. Anderson is well known for his defensive teachings and Welch has taken on the mantra with the Tigers, who cause havoc for opposing offenses. He was never my head coach, but he was always there to pull me aside and encourage me, Welch said. He still helps me today, if I need advice hes still there to give me advice. This will be the rst time Anderson and Welch have coached together. Thats a remarkable feat considering Anderson has a large rolodex of former assistants across the Panhandle. Two of them, Michael Grady and Mike Memmen, are head coaches at Bay and Bozeman, respectively, and also have coached in the allstar game. Welch said he would defer to Anderson if he wanted to be labeled the head coach of the East. There typically isnt an ofcial designation between head coach and assistant in the Halifax Classic. In fact, both admitted theres little to be done in coaching up some of the areas best senior basketball players. You didnt have to win to please anybody, there wasnt a lot of pressure, Welch said. The biggest thing I took from it was how much fun the kids had in the short amount of time they were together. They really bonded. Anderson enjoys not only coaching with good friends, but bringing together rivals with a combined goal. And while there was little pressure, it still felt good to win and earn bragging rights, he said. It was really good to coach the players you coached against during the season, Anderson said. The kids all knew how to play and they played for each other. Anderson and Graceville bowed out in the District 3-1A semi nals. He will have a few months of relaxing and traveling to watch games, likely Malone during its run, before leading the East. And if the next two months are anything like his 50 years they will crawl by slowly rather than whiz past. Im 50 going on 29 and to be honest with you, between teaching and coaching and working out and things like that I dont feel much different than when I was coaching at 27, Anderson said. If someone didnt keep up with it (his age) and tell me Im 50 I wouldnt know it. Anderson, Welch chosen to lead East boys By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @pcnhbradmilner bmilner@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY BEACH Rutherford basketball coach Rhondie Ross was told Bay went more than 14 minutes with only a handful of baskets in Saturdays District 1-5A championship game. His response was quick. They went how long? Ross said with surprise. In truth, there has been little surprising with the Rams recent show of defensive dominance spanning more than a month. The latest display was on Saturday, when they defeated the Tornadoes 54-28 to secure Ross third straight district title. Rutherford ran its winning streak to 13 games since a Jan. 4 loss while holding the past 12 opponents to fewer than 50 points. It was the third time in the span the Rams (25-3) held a team to fewer than 30, including both foes in the 1-5A tournament. Rutherford had more offensive intensity on Saturday than in a turnover-plagued 44-23 win over Pensacola West Florida Tech a day earlier. The Rams also forced 20 turnovers for the second straight night. Ross pointed to the regular-season nale against Fort Walton Beach as the lynchpin in the streak. The Rams won 55-49 against a formidable foe and it showed how well they can shut down a potent offense. It was the perfect game to go into the tournament, Ross said. We had beaten so many teams by a large margin that I think we got bored and complacent. Good teams will help with that. Thats not taking anything away from West Florida Tech or Bay, he said, but he reiterated how it was important to maintain focus even with blowout victories in two prior meetings with the Tornadoes. Rutherfords defense weathered what was a potential momentum swing after one quarter and changed the complexion of the contest through the next 16 minutes. Bay (16-11) narrowed the gap to 18-12 at the end of the rst quarter with two baskets in the nal 30 seconds. The second and nal shot was a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Markeis Goodman. However, rather than challenge more the Tornadoes withered. Goodman scored Bays only basket of the second quarter, as Rutherford moved ahead 33-16 at halftime. The Tornadoes didnt score another eld goal until a Ryan Norwood 3pointer with 1:30 left to play in the third quarter. By then the game was 42-20 and comfortably in Rutherfords favor. When you have momentum you have to score, Bay coach Michael Grady said. We missed some easy put backs, and against a team like Rutherford you need all the points you can get. We had intensity, we just didnt do anything with it. Rutherford matched Bay with a buzzer beater by Keith Arts to end the rst half. The Rams went on to limit Bay to less than 10 points in each of the nal two quarters for the victory. Khaliel Spearman led the Rams with 13 points, while senior Kiki Williamson added 10 and Gabriel Steele and Alex Banks eight each. Im so happy and proud for our seniors, Ross said. People dont realize how much work they put in. They dont realize how much work goes into a basketball game. I call it a production and it takes everyone. Demetrius Rivers was Bays lone doublegure scorer with 11 points. The Tornadoes will travel to Tallahassee Rickards in the Region 1-5A opener on Thursday. Rutherford earned the right to host at least one regional game. It will do so against Live Oak Suwannee on Thursday.

Also present was the Poplar Springs Junior and Senior Beta Club members to update the school board on their recent successes at the recent Beta convention. I would like to begin by saying thank you to our supportive leadership that we have at Poplar Springs, said Junior Beta Sponsor Lacy Brown. Mr. Wells and Mrs. Watford are always supportive and encourag ing with whatever the proj ect may be. Their support has been essential in our success as a group. We are also blessed to have numerous help ing parents involved, she said. Whether it was paint ing, collecting shirt orders, dreaming up skits and out ts, whatever needed doing, these parents helped. Im ever grateful for them. The students will be hon ored at the Poplar Springs school on Feb. 22. On this day they will showcase their song from songfest. Cameron, our state president, will give his speech, and his campaign skit will be presented. Liv ing literature and all arts, crafts, and projects will be displayed, Brown said. The time is not yet decided, but I will send an invitation to all of you later. I hope you will be there. Brown announced the awards presented to the Poplar Springs Junior Beta. State President was giv en to Cameron King; PSHS won a third-place banner award; Rauston Tate won rst place in black and white photography; Levi Collins won rst place in digitally enhanced photog raphy; Robin Tate won rst place in hand-made jewelry; PSHS won third place in liv ing literature; Rouston Tate won rst place in recyclable art; PSHS won rst place in scrapbook; PSHS won rst place in campaign skit and speech for Cameron King; PSHS won third place in songfest; PSHS won third place in spotlight your club; John David Watford won rst place in T-shirt design; Brayden Smith won sec ond place in woodworking; Kassyn Williams won third place in wreath; and PSHS won second place in arts and crafts sweepstakes. I just want to say thank you to Mr. Wells, Mrs. Wat ford, Mr. Dixon and the school board as well as all the parents, said Senior Beta Sponsor Teresa Cul breth. Without them, we would not be able to go and compete at the state level. They work really hard all year to prepare for the state competition. She said 19 of the 32 members in Senior Beta went to the state convention along with 10 adults and an nounced what the Senior Betas placed. Bethanny Strickland won rst place in black/white still photography; Hadley Battles won rst place in creative writing; Ridge Tate won rst place in digitally enhanced photography; Kelli McIntosh won second place in banner; Cheyenne Mayo won third place in black/white action photog raphy; and Cami Dixon won third place in black/white sketch. Not only did they do well at the convention, but after riding back from Or lando after being on a bus all day Tuesday, they played ball against Laurel Hill that night and won the rst game in the playoffs, Cul breth said. I just want to say that this is a great group of kids. They always behave in a manner that represents Poplar Springs well. The Junior and Senior Beta Club brought in exam ples of their placed items, such as banners and art. I love their banners, Chairman Rusty Williams said. Theyre a ne exam ple of what hard work and dedication looks like. Board member Shirley Owens said she has been involved in Beta for quite a while as a former sponsor. You can tell that its the kids hard work that brought them this far, not the sponsors, Owens said. Im very proud of the Beta Club. Superintendent Eddie Dixon said he was proud of them as well. Its really a neat thing to watch them interact with other schools, and because of their hard work, were second to none, Dixon said. I was proud to say thats our kids; thats our county. Speaking from the public was resident Connie Black, who asked the board of the progress for getting art and music studies into Bethle hem High School. Williams said the school district was working on ways to bring those pro grams in. You have money for an assistant deputy super intendent but not for the kids? Black said. Dixon said there was very little extra money put into position of assistant deputy superintendent and that the title itself was new, but the position was not. Its an additional title to an already existing one, which is the personnel di rector, Dixon said. This just gives him the authority to act in my stead if anything should happen to me. Jim Goodman holds the position of assistant deputy superintendent, and Dixon said the previous posi tion Goodman held was done away with, and Good man took on the new posi tion, which is classied as administrative. Owens asked what the board was doing about updating safety issues because of recent events involving school safety breaches both on campus and in transportation. Dixon said the Depart ment of Education had ad vised that none of the local schools or school boards do anything until their plans have been updated and approved. Board member Debbie Kolmetz asked if all of the principals in Holmes Coun ty were certied. Dixon replied that those who are not are in the pro cess of being certied. Williams encouraged all residents to contact their local representatives to re quest additional funding for the schools. Its through additional funding that well be able to add programs such as the music and the arts to schools like Bethlehem, Williams said. Its through the addition of many voices that were able to be heard in our legislature. So help Holmes County be heard.

He will be your faithful friend forever if youll just give him a chance. Even though they may be taken for granted, pet vaccinations are vital for your pets health. Properly vaccinating your pet is an important part of pet care because vaccines can potentially help protect your pet against some serious health conditions and diseases. Vaccines are a suspension of altered microorganisms, which will prevent, lessen or treat disease without causing the disease, said Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Vaccines are considered the cornerstone of preventive medicine. Knowing the different types of vaccinations and how they work can help pet owners provide the best care for their animals. There are live, killed, modi ed live and recombinant vaccinations, Stickney said. By exposing the immune system to bacteria or viruses that are genetically similar to the ones that will cause disease, the immune system will develop antibodies that protect the body when it encounters the actual disease-causing organism. Some pet vaccines can be purchased overthe-counter and given by non-veterinarians, Stickney said. However, there may be quality control issues with vaccines if you are not familiar with the correct way to store and use them. By law, certain vaccines, like the rabies vaccine, can only be given by your veterinarian, Stickney said. Your veterinarian is also the best person to determine which vaccines your pet needs and how frequently they should be administered. All puppies and kittens should receive the rabies vaccine at three months of age and again at one year of age. Vaccination schedules vary depending on the area of the country you are in and the prevalence of different diseases in that area, Stickney said. Puppies should be vaccinated for distemper virus, adenovirus, parvovirus and parain uenza, while kittens should be vaccinated for viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia. Other vaccinations may also be recommended depending on the lifestyle of your pet. Booster shots are necessary in puppies and kittens to overcome maternal immunity, where the antibodies that the puppies and kittens acquired from their mother provide some protection but eventually break down, Stickney said. Vaccines are ineffective in the face of maternal immunity; therefore the puppy and kitten vaccine series is necessary to protect the pet during the time when the maternal immunity disappears. Booster shots remind the immune system of diseases it is supposed to protect against. The frequency at which adult animals should receive booster vaccines has been a topic of debate among veterinarians for years. Increasingly, we have evidence that most vaccines do not need to be boosted every year and that the risk of an animal catching certain diseases decreases with age. Your veterinarian will be able to tailor a vaccine protocol to the speci c lifestyle of your pet. No vaccine is 100 percent effective, Stickney said. It is possible to overwhelm any vaccine and immune system with exposure to enough diseasecausing organisms. Additionally, adverse reactions can occur from vaccinations. These reactions are most likely to occur the second time an animal receives a vaccine. They usually occur within a few minutes to six hours of vaccination. There are two types of reactions commonly seen, anaphylactic and delayed hypersensitivity, Stickney said. Delayed hypersensitivity reactions are more common and less serious. The pet becomes itchy and the face and ears swell. These reactions can usually be treated with antihistamines. Anaphylactic reactions are less common and are serious and lifethreatening, Stickney said. The animal collapses and goes into shock. Epinephrine and intravenous uids are necessary to treat the animal. If your pet ever had an allergic reaction to a vaccine, it is important to let your veterinarian know. Even pets that are allergic to a speci c vaccine typically have no problems if they are treated with antihistamines before vaccinations. Remember, vaccines are health products that signal protective immune responses in your pet. Your veterinarian can best guide you in the use and scheduling of vaccinations for your pet.

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.

February is the month we celebrate romance. Actually, the only romantic things about me are my love handles, which is why I have spent so much energy developing them over the years. You think somebody would appreciate them. For some people, romance is an easy, if not natural thing. Others, like me, nd it complicated and elusive. It is not that men are less romantic than women are; they just have different ideas of romance. For most women, romance is owers and candy in heart shaped boxes. For men it is a Big Mac with fries and a soda ... and SUPER SIZE it, please. Why are women so complicated and men so simple? I do not think that came out the way I meant it. If it were not for women, romance would have died a long time ago. There is nothing quite like springtime with a hint of romance in the air with a delicate dash of chivalry. People from Hollywood try to de ne romance for us, but their idea of romance is raw sex and lurid lust. Hollywooders would not know romance if it nibbled on their ears. Romance is not a ing in the spring, but a lifelong relationship, experiencing all the ups and downs of life together and no growing apart! There is no picture quite as refreshing as a couple still together after all those years of turmoil and temerity. The easiest thing in all the world is to fall in love for a few years and then, when it gets dif cult, bail out. What kind of thing is that? Ah, but to see a couple married for 50 years or more, now that is the epitome of real romance. Ill have you know that romance has not been a stranger at the parsonage. I met my wife (actually, she wasnt my wife then) when I went away to Bible college in 1970. At the time, I was functionally romance challenged. Before I left home for college, I prayed for a wife. I had the good sense to know that a minister needs a good wife to support him in the ministry. I prayed something like this, Father, I need a good wife, and I dont know how to go about it. Let the rst single girl I meet at Bible college be the wife of Your choosing. Now, I know this is a crazy and dangerous prayer to make. Some would take the high road of romance, but I took the low road of prayer. I may have been a bit desperate, but nobody could doubt my earnestness. I also gured that prayer was a lot cheaper than dating. After all, I am a Pennsylvania Dutchman. Nevertheless, I prayed for a wife. The day of my arrival on campus came and found me a bit anxious. I remembered my prayer and wondered just how God would answer it. My parents took me to the college, which was some 500 miles from home; good planning on my part the mens dorm, I gured I was safe. I planned to avoid all contact with the opposite sex as long as possible. But just as we pulled into the mens dorm parking lot, a young woman exited from the mens dorm. Remembering my prayer, I immediately amended it. God, this doesnt count. Ive not stepped out of the car yet. Have you ever noticed that God has a marvelous sense of humor? The young woman emerging from the mens dorm de ed description. Do you remember when women rolled their hair up in big rollers? Well, this young woman had rolled her hair up in tomato cans! Nothing prepared me for such a sight. She actually looked like some space alien. I do not know what she was wearing or even what she looked like. All I could see were those tomato cans on her head. At the time, I did not know much about romance, but I knew this was not it. The next few days I did everything to avoid the womens dorm for fear I would run into her. Whenever I did see her, I crossed to the other side of the street. But the more I tried to avoid her, the more I ran into her. Prayer makes strange partners. Thinking I was making progress in my plan of avoidance, the inevitable happened. One week after arrival, my roommate invited me to come along with him and his girlfriend to a restaurant. Being the neurotic naive that I am, I said, Sure, Id love to come along. After all, I had nothing else to do and it seemed like some fun. When my roommate went to the womens dorm to pick up his girlfriend, who do you suppose was standing with his girlfriend waiting? Thats right. The young woman with the tin cans on her head. Would you believe it? The young woman with the tin cans turned out to be the sister of my roommate. It was a whirlwind romance. I met her in September and in February she asked me to marry her. In August of that year, I found myself at a church altar mumbling, do. The Bible makes this promise: Whoso ndeth a wife ndeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD (Proverbs 18:22 KJV). A good wife is the nd of a lifetime, as long as God is in charge of the search. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.
