At the request of the board, Attorney Jeff Goodman wrote a policy restricting the use of county dirt on private property. Were not in the dirt hauling business, Commissioner Bill Parish said. This is in no way to punish people; its just expensive to haul and opens the county up for so much liability. Board Chairman Monty Merchant said with the county being freed up from the private sector, it will have that much more time and resources to focus on county needs. Parish requested Goodman write an identical agreement for rock. Hauling rock is no different from hauling dirt, Parish said. Goodman agreed to write the policy and present it before the board at the next meeting. The Paid Time Off Abuse Policy the board had considered died for lack of a second, but Goodman agreed to bring it before the board at the next meeting. I just think Commissioner David Whitaker should have a say as well, Parish said in regard to Whitakers absence at that board meeting. Holmes County Auditor Hilton Galloway led an Audit Exit Conference, explaining there were a few discrepancies, but the overall audit was very positive. One issue was that you chose not to nd out what the county is committing to future county retirees, Galloway said. As for the countys budget, it is very well balanced.

LIVE COOKING DEMONSTRATIONS! of debt and accumulated no new debt last year. It was a pretty good year in utilizing your resources. Commissioner Kenneth Williams said the board chose not to conduct the study because it would cost $8,000 to $10,000 just to get an estimate. The cost has been greatly reduced since then, Galloway said. Its now around $3,500 and only has to be done every three years, but this really has been an issue across the country. Government agencies everywhere have no idea how to project that amount mainly due to the Baby Boomers making it unforeseeable. County employee Hubert Hendrix asked the board about its sign-making policy, saying the county had started making signs for itself and local agencies 10 years ago to save money but now is getting requests from local towns for parks. We save a lot of money by making it ourselves, because if we were to purchase them, it would cost us four times as much per sign, Hendrix said. And as much as we have to replace some signs, thatd be very expensive very quick. I just want to know if we should be dealing with local towns, and if so, how much are we going to charge them? Goodman said his concern is that the county is staying within state guidelines for signage requirements for all mandated signs. Parish said he didnt believe the county should be in the sign-making business. Hendrix said he would contact the state to make sure all the speci cations are up to code. After much discussion, 911 Director Clint Erickson said not only is there a problem with people stealing and relocating signs, but there is also a growing problem of people putting up personal signs. The board gave Erickson the authority to identify signs that are stolen, relocated or unauthorized by 911 and work with the attorney to have a letter sent out and be reinforced by law enforcement as a second-degree misdemeanor. After a public hearing, the road abandonment was tabled after local resident Tom Smith said abandoning the road would mean cutting off access to his property. This is the rst Ive heard of this, Goodman said. Let me look into the matter and bring it before the board at the next meeting. We wont need to hold another public hearing, and if this is cleared up, then well just need to publish after adopting it, and after 30 days it will be made effective. At the boards Jan. 16 meeting, resident Jeffery Johnson had raised the request to properly vacate a street that dead-ends next to a piece of property he purchased recently from Collette. Its 8.5 acres of usable land, but if that piece of street was properly vacated it would be 10.6, Johnson said. Landowner Daniel Collette said the boards old resolution didnt include the lower half to be properly vacated, but that he was ready to sign the required paper work and pay the $500 to place up the sign. Weve got to run an ad and hold a public hearing at the next meeting in March, Goodman said. The board approved of Hendrixs request to purchase an air compressor for $2,400 using FEMA funds. The board also approved to raise the preference for using a local vendor for purchases from 3 percent to 5 percent. This means if there is a 5 percent or less difference between bidded items, then the county can choose the local vendor over the lowest bidder. the land in 2002 and continuing to the groundbreaking ceremony on Valentines Day 2007. What a celebration we had that day, Blitch said. We did something that was never thought possible. With a lot of hard work and perseverance, we made it happen. On April 1, 2008, the hospital had its grand opening. Blitch said the hospital has seen a 133 percent increase in patients since its opening. Weve got a rehabilitation department now, Blitch said. Weve got acute therapy, swingbed rehabilitation and outpatient therapy. She said acute therapy is good for falls, orthopedic pain, after surgery and COPD issues, and swingbed rehabilitation is good for a short-term stay at the hospital when medically stable after an acute stay. Swingbed rehabilitation usage has increased by 240 percent, Blitch said. We also have a physical therapy gym and physical therapy pool. We offer aquatic therapy and occupational therapy. She said they have received so many good reviews of the aquatic therapy because it accelerates rehabilitation while increasing range of motion with less pain. It takes the weight off the injured area, and the patients love the therapeutic properties of the warm water, Blitch said. Occupational therapy gives you the strength to go back to doing the simple, everyday things required with work at home or on the job. The hospitals Digital Mammography Department does an average of 1,200 mammograms a year, she said. DMH also has a Prodigy Primo Lunar Bone Densitometer, which measures bone density and helps in the diagnosis of osteoporosis, which is very common in women, Blitch said. The hospital also offers mobile nuclear medicine, a non-invasive study to determine disease in many bodily organs and bone structure using less radiation then an X-ray or CT scan, and mobile MRI. Their general and laparoscopic surgical procedures include gallbladder, colonoscopy, hernia, biopsies, scopes, carpel tunnel, hysterectomy, mastectomy, tubal ligation, ovarian cyst, adhesions, tonsillectomy and hemorrhoidectomy. We do 95 percent of our lab work in house, Blitch said. And that includes cardiac markers, chemistry panels, liver function tests, potassium, protime, urine culture, drug testing for employment, complete blood count, lipid pro le, thyroid testing, hemoglobin A1C, routine urinalysis and rapid strep. We also have a Wound Care Center, which is a chronic problem with those who have diabetes. She thanked the DMH Auxiliary, which contributes time and funds for special projects. We love our volunteers, Blitch said. They make such a difference and raise the hospital around $10,000 a year. DMH will have a Golf Scramble and Golf Ball Drop on April 12 at the Dogwood Lakes Golf Club. Were also celebrating our fth anniversary on Monday, April 1, Blitch said. Well have a Customer Appreciation Day with free lunch and screenings. We usually have important people like Marti Coley show up; she spent last year with us. Blitch said the hospital provides many free services to the community, such as free screenings at events, educational luncheons, awareness events such as the Heart Walk and tours for students, giving them information on what it takes to become a doctor, nurse, technician, etc. We feed the children every year at the Holmes County Public Librarys end-of-the-year celebration, she said. Thats just to name a few of the services provided to the community. This biggest service, she said, is called Bad Debt and Charity. This is where we forgive bad debt for our customers, Blitch said. In 2007, we gave back $1 million in debt, and in 2012, we gave back $2.5 million. If we were a typical business, that kind of expenses wouldve done us in, but were about the community. DMHs Donna Burroughs spoke on the difference between HMOs and PPOs: HMOs allow you to pick your physician, while a PPO has a group of physicians to choose from. Always ask questions when choosing, Burroughs said. These plans open on Oct. 11 and end on Dec. 7, so take your time in choosing. Remember to ask the important questions, like what your responsibility will be and what do they cover. DMH doctor and Chief of Staff Patrick Hawkins spoke on how appreciative he was of DMH. I grew up in Bonifay and eventually went to school at Florida State University, Hawkins said. Thats a lot of student loans, and on top of that, while I was in college I decided to get married, which meant more debt. During my second year, Doctors Memorial Hospital gave me a scholarship and took a huge burden off me, and theyve been a huge support. Hawkins said it was amazing to see that we offer a lot of services and much more than anyone realizes. It was revolutionary what we could do with what we had. Electronic charting was really nice for sending and receiving information to and from facilities with such ease. It greatly improved the quality of care. He said that DMH had all you needed from a large hospital right here at home. Im very proud of our hospital, and Im very proud of our community, Hawkins said. Youd be surprised at what we can offer. DMH Administrator JoAnn Baker asked for the communitys support. You should be very proud of your hospital, Baker said. We need your support and your input. You might think were magicians the way we put $2.5 (million) into relieving debt to our patients and still be able to continue on, but this is a community hospital, and if it wasnt for the support of the community, we wouldnt have been able to make all that go away. Baker asked that if anyone had any questions, comments or concerns to contact the hospital through Human Resources at 547-8004. Were your community hospital, and we love you, Baker said. They wrapped up with the video they did for the Pink Dance Competition for MedLine, which Blitch said was done by the hospital in honor of one of its nurses who was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The awards are given to outstanding folk artists and folk culture advocates who have made longstanding contributions to the folk cultural resources of the state. Established in 1985, the program parallels the National Heritage Fellowships, according to the state Division of Historical Resources website, heritage.com. Laurence is passionate about bees, Circuit Judge Mark Moseley wrote in his letter supporting Cutts nomination for the award. He has traveled the state, the country and the world to promote the science and traditions of bee-keeping. In 2012, Cutts was inducted into the Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame for his distinguished career as a beekeeper. Laurence is an inventor, poet, song/hymn writer and story-teller, Moseley said. He is both a repository and ready sharer of this Floridas rich and noble traditions. More than that, he is part of Floridas rich and noble heritage. Cutts father was a beekeeper, and at the age of 16, Laurence began raising queens to sell. This grew into a business in which he produced and sold honey and provided bees for pollination for various crops in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. Cutts worked in this business until 1985, when he accepted a position overseeing the states apiary inspections. During his employment with the state, the varroa mite and small hive beetle were creating major problems for the beekeepers. Cutts was instrumental in bringing the need for research to reduce beehive losses to the forefront. Throughout his tenure with the state, he was always accessible to the states beekeepers for advice and direction. Cutts also invented and still is marketing a new beetle trap through various bee supply companies in the United States. This trap promises to be a better deterrent for the small hive beetle. Among his many achievements, Cutts has served as president of the Tupelo Beekeepers Association (1956-1963), president of the Florida Beekeepers Association (1956, 2003-2005) vice-president of the Apiary Inspectors of America (1991), president of Apiary inspectors of America (1992), secretary of the Florida Honey Packers Association (1958), president of the Kate Smith Elementary School P.T.A. (1970), chairman of the Honey Advisory committee Florida Farm Bureau (1977-1985), a member of the Agricultural Advisory Council (1977-85) and secretary of the Honey Bee Technical Council (1986-2003). We dont know of anyone who has given more to this segment of agriculture and is truly deserving of this recognition, said George McAdams of the Bay County Farm Bureau. CUTTS from page A1 during the event included the Bonifay Elementary School Drummers, students from the Dance Center of Bonifay, the Troy Dampier Band, the Holmes County High School and Bonifay Middle School Choir, Jayme Bryan, Dancing in the Streets with Angela, AFGT Praise Band, Robert Couch and the Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ. Students from Bonifay Taekwondo U.S.A. performed a demonstration of their skills, and students from the Holmes County High School JROTC were on hand to help keep the festival running smoothly. Dozens of vendors provided food, arts and crafts to round out the festival feeling. This is a great event and reminds me of the Disney Village when shot in Disney World, Shroyer said. These are real people, and we have having a ball here this weekend. Bill Jones from Panama City Beach, accompanied by his family, spent the day admiring the classic cars while his wife and children enjoyed the amusements and musical entertainment. This is a great car show by itself, Jones said. Add the rest of this huge event, and there is truly something for everyone.

OPINION www.bonifaynow.com A Page 4 Section Wednesday, March 20, 2013 A few days ago, the Prattler received a telephone call from Joyce Williams Stan eld, a Holmes County native who explained she had read and enjoyed my article concerning my great uncle, Jasper Green Wells, and his family. The caller told me that my kinsman lived on Montana Avenue in north Bonifay and she had enjoyed many visits sitting and talking with my uncle and wife, Aunt Linnie Baker Wells, as they all sat on the front porch of the Wells home. Mrs. Stan eld told me her family moved to Columbus, Ga., and later to Grif n, Ga., where she still makes her home. This call again called to my attention the numbers of people who have told me how much they enjoy having the Prattle column being printed in the Holmes County Times-Advertiser. Among those making comments about my articles include Shawn Ingram, who was associated with this father, Mr. Carl Ingram, in the long-time operation of the Western Auto Store in Bonifay. Roy Messer and wife, Donna Land Messser, residents of Holmes County, told me several months ago they read and enjoy my weekly narratives in the papers. At the funeral service for Malzie Wells Smith a few months ago, held at Campground Cemetery north of Westville, Mrs. Steverson and Mrs. Smith, associated with the Gordon and Oakley Smith families, spoke kind words regarding my writings in the Holmes County paper. At the recent Wild Game Dinner at Poplar Springs School, Gwen Young and husband, John Young, parents of local attorney, Brandon Young, told me of their readership of the Prattle and especially appreciated the historical nature of my material. Mrs. Young is a retired Holmes County teacher and taught with sister, Hazel Tison When talking to the lady in Grif n, Ga., I immediately surmised that her family moved to Columbus from Bonifay seeking employment in the cotton mills. I did not inquire if this was the case, and my guess may be strictly conjecture. The call has caused me to re ect on the many, many families I recall of having relocated to Columbus for work in the textile industry. Some remained for a lifetime and some gave up and returned to this area seeking different livelihoods. One Holmes County family, Otho Consford and wife, Odell Barber Consford, remained in the county until their children, Willard and Wilma, had nished high school before making the move looking for greener pastures. Whether true or not, I cannot fully attest, but reportedly Otho was unhappy with the move and looked for an opportunity to move back south. Upon seeing he would not likely return to Holmes County, he reportedly told his family that in case he did not get to leave Columbus before dying that his request was for his body to be placed in the Chattahoochee River where he could oat as far as possible back to his native homeland. When my dads sister, Virginia (Jenny) Wells, married Arthur Hinson in 1934, the country was still in the throes of the Depression Era. In desperation, the couple moved to Columbus for work in the cotton mill industry. After several months of disillusionment, they returned home and tried their hand at many other endeavors but never left the area again. My fathers cousin, Luvern Harrell, oldest daughter of O. D Brock Harrell and W. Alto Harrell, married Hubert Hammond. They soon sought employment in the factories of Columbus and lived in housing provided for employees by the company. Their living arrangement was the only one observed by the writer of those who moved to Columbus. In one of Hugh Wells many efforts to provide for his large family, he hauled peaches from the Georgia area, peddling them along his favorite established route. In the early 1940s, the entrepreneur planned a peach run to the Columbus area. It ended up being an opportunity for our Aunt O.D., along with young daughters Janie and Myrtle, to join our dad, Hugh, our granddaddy, Tom Wells, and with Perry and Jim Wells being allowed to tag along. The rst hazard of the trip was some serious sunburn to the four youngsters who made the trip standing in the open bed of the pickup truck. Upon leaving the Harrells with Luvern in Columbus, the peach seekers went their way to load up with peaches. We were to drive back to Luvern and Huberts for the night before proceeding home to Washington County. Hazard number two overtook us after the truck was loaded with fresh peaches. An overload spring gave way, dropping the full load down to the axle, thus disabling our movement. Suf ce to say, it was approaching midnight when we made it back to the Hammond home. Very little is remembered about the overnight stay except it was rather crowded with all the additional people converging on the household. Re ections down through the years has told me of the obvious imposition such a venture brought to the young couple, who attempted to be gracious hosts even though ill-prepared to handle seven additional people thrust upon them. All the combined experiences has brought my mind to another Jim and Jesse protest song titled Cotton Mill Man, written by a man named Langston and recorded by the duo in 1985. The lyrics: I was born in the shadow of a cotton mill smoke stack down in Alabamas bottom land, where my grand pappy broke his back pulling on a cotton sack, to raise my Pa to be a cotton mill man. Ive got lots of memories government commodities when all our meat came in a can. While the boss man on the hill bought his steak and ate his ll then called upon to clean his grill the cotton mill man. I saw my woman cry when her baby daughter died. Why the doctor never came, the lack of money was to blame. Then the lament: Lord, dont let my son grow up to be a sweaty cotton mill man! See you all next week. PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells SPECIAL TO TIMES-ADVERTISER Jim and Jesse and The Virginia Boys: Dave Sutherland, Allen Shelton, Jim Buchanan and Don McHan. Prattler recalls Georgia memories Its March, and schools and colleges are all having spring vacations. Getting most of our news coverage from local TV about spring break gives us negative connotations. Wall-towall, nearly nude bodies hold beer cans or funnels coming from a keg into several mouths. It is not a scene where I would want my grandchildren to be. Fortunately, although most of my seven are near that age (two have just graduated, three are in college), this kind of scene does not attract them either. Already this spring, one alcohol poisoning death and one serious auto accident has been recorded. Invariably each year, too, deaths or injuries from balcony hopping have occurred. Many unreported misadventures have occurred or will occur. The beach court where misdemeanors are settled reveal the scope of the problems. Some wholesome things also happen during spring break, though. For my granddaughters, just being home with family and friends, going shopping, even visiting aged grandparents or a day trip to a not-so-public beach is a good break for them. But some out of the area young people come to the beach and engage in ministry. One group called Beach Reach use their school vacation to visit Panama City Beach and share their Christian testimony. They offer bus rides to and from any destination; restaurants, clubs, parks, shopping centers. You name it. During these contacts, they are able to share their faith. This ministry also keeps drivers who have imbibed too much from driving in that condition. Other Christian ministries also are seen at the beach. Habitat For Humanity has a group of students who come to Marianna each year from New York and Illinois to build a home for some deserving family. My sister and her husband, Muriel and Roy Turner, always host a group of them. I also saw on the TV news where a group were building a home in Calloway which had been destroyed by re. So not all activities are hedonistic. But to answer my own question, where did Spring Break originate? Perhaps it came with a longer school year. When we were teaching, we might have 3 days. Then, we used that time to plant the garden. Later after the children were established elsewhere, we enjoyed a visit to Southwest Florida where our daughter lived, and we could sh on Babcock Ranch. I would guess that the behavior we see on TV associated with Spring Break came from the movie, Where The Boys Are. When I was in school in the s and s, we only went to school for eight months. I remember celebrating my May birthday for the rst time in 1948, the rst year that Florida had nine-month schools. Sometimes in the beginning of the school year, we would have half day sessions in order for students to go home early to assist in the cotton or peanut harvest, but I dont recall any short session in the spring to harvest produce which was our biggest crop. Here in Florida, Spring Break gives a big boost to our economy with the early in ux of students in a time when not much else is going on. The snowbirds have mostly gone home, and the summer season is yet to come. The school break is good for those who undergo the stress of the present-day classroom. I am happy for the opportunity to have family members visit, especially this year to help me get my new computer going. (Not what they had in mind for a visit to Mama and Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa.) If you missed me last week blame it on the computer. I am committed to learning to use what I have, though, since my friend Jim Helms spent many hours setting up, Cindy, Haley Glen, and Hiram invested considerable time trying to help me. But with the help of a good tech support team, I am con dent that Ill soon have conquered the beast. HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison Whoever invented Spring Break? HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Wednesday, March 20, 2013 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County District School Board mem bers discussed on Monday increasing bus driver safety education to biannual in stead of annually. School Board member Jason Motley initiated the discussion of bus safety by asking for the curriculum involved in the annual bus driver workshops. Superintendent Eddie Dixon said it included CPR training, conict resolution, the referral process, etc. I just want to make sure that our bus drivers are being educated in how to deal with confronta tions, much like the one bus driver had sto face in Midland City, said Motley. We need to get a little pro active until the state gives us instructions on what to do. Our bus drivers arent getting what they need and they need it at least twice a year with possible dis cussion and input from the drivers. Dixon said that he would look into what was required to get something like that set up. We do have certain state requirements that must be followed by state but it wouldnt hurt to ex pand that training to be done twice a year, said Dixon. Resident and teacher at Bethlehem High School Tamra Kriser was pres ent to ask the board about the progress of Bethlehem High Schools upcoming art and music classes once again. The Holmes County Choir came to Bethlehem and put on an amazing performance, said Kris er. I was just wondering when wed be able to be put on the agenda to get this started. Weve got over 700 signatures from 700 in dividuals that want to see this happen. Kriser requested that she be placed on the agen da Aprils meeting and Dixon explained that it was a personnel issue and couldnt be placed on the agenda until Dixon had a recommendation and that wouldnt be done until the regular hiring over the summer. The only denite an swer we can give you right now is that its being looked into, said Dixon. Were looking at every avenue, for instance were trying to see if a position has to be created or if we can use an already existing position to ll that need; not necessar ily saying that the person would come from within our existing staff but that we wont have to create a new position. We love what Holmes County Choir has done; its a wonderful pro gram and wed love to see that at all of our schools. Chairman Rusty Wil liams thanked the City of Bonifay and the Bonifay Fire Department for their recent honoring of the Hol mes County High Schools boys basketball team for winning state. It was a wonderful presentation honoring our boys, said Williams. The City of Bonifay held a parade and ceremony for the boys and the Boni fay Fire Department pro vided a great lunch. They were very generous and I want everyone to know how much we appreciate them. The next scheduled board meeting is set for 9 a.m. on April 2 at the Holmes County District School Board located at 701 East Pennsylvania Ave. in Bonifay.

Serving You Is Our Most Important Product *Property Insurance is not available in the state of Florida from Auto-Owners Insurance. From Staff Reports TALLAHASSEE The Florida Commission on Ethics issued an opinion on city ofcials and silent auction bids during its meeting on March 8 in Tallahassee. The commission adopted an advisory opinion stating that a member of a city council, who places the highest bid on a poker party donated to a silent auction by a pari-mutual facility that is the principal of a lobbyist of the city, has not received a gift as the term is de ned by law, according to a news release from the commission. Rather, he has purchased an item at fair market value. Nor has the council member received a gift when the pari-mutual facility, as a part of its business operations, makes a contribution to a charity chosen by a guest of the councilmembers poker party, according to the commission. In another opinion, the commission determined a mayors travel to conferences and events paid for by others would not be considered gifts to the city, and consistent with legislative intent, and the commissions precedent, the travel constituted gifts to the mayor personally. The opinion states that were the mayors travel paid for by his own agency and his agency were then reimbursed by a third party, the reimbursement received by the agency would be considered a gift to the agency. Funds received by the city from third parties and deposited into a public fund, which are then used to pay for of cial travel by city ofcials, also would be considered a gift to the agency. The Florida Commission on Ethics is an independent nine-member commission formed in 1974 to review complaints led under the statutory Code of Ethics and to answer questions from public of cials about potential con icts of interest through its issuance of advisory opinions. If the Ethics Commission believes a violation of the law may have occurred, it may decide to hold a public hearing. If it concludes a violation has been committed, it may recommend civil penalties that include removal from of ce or employment and nes up to $10,000 per violation.

Eventually, though, Animal Rescue Control of Bay County called Holly Julian of Chipley with no doubt that their Stormy was our Abby, Julian said. Before her disappearance, the dog was part-time inside, parttime penned outside and part-time loose outside. She would wander a little in the neighborhood but would never disappear, Julian said. But near the end of July last year, Abby wandered away. Several weeks later, we decided something had happened to her and shes never coming home, Julian said. What they didnt know was that the Australian shepherd stray was picked up by Bay County Animal Control on July 23, and ve days later, Animal Rescue Control began screening her for adoption. When selecting animals for adoption, in addition to general animal shelter and foster home availability, the agency conducts temperament testing to see if the dog seems to have personality, said Charles Cromer, president of ARC, a local all-volunteer organization that helps local animals nd homes. Cromer said Abby is an AusiAusi mix, intelligent, very peopleoriented, easy to train and normally pretty outgoing. Leslie Wilkinson of Monticello thought the same. They are probably the smartest dogs on the planet, and theyre also loyal, Wilkinson said. She said she found Stormy online and began the process of adopting her through ARC, adding she looked a lot like our dog that died and we were looking for an Australian shepherd. Stormy was not a perfect match for the Wilkinson family, but Wilkinson soon received a phone call from ARC informing her someone else wanted Stormy. Everything that happened was an amazing story; it was just meant to be, Wilkinson said. Cromer said after he learned the Wilkinsons had decided against keeping Stormy, he posted a photo on Facebook, hoping to nd another pet foster parent. It was kind of amazing that the day that we were re-homing the adoptive family was needing us to re-home Stormy the original owners saw a post on Facebook, Cromer said. ARCs policy is if the pet was a stray, the original owner can reclaim it after undergoing a verication process that includes the submission of veterinary records, old photos and an accurate description of the pet. Its kind of hard for us to say, You cant have your dog back, he said, adding microchipping and ID tags are an asset for such cases. After Julian proved the dog once belonged to her, Cromer linked Wilkinson with Julian, and Julian was reunited with Abby on March 4. We had her since she was 4 weeks old, so we are really adjusted to her personality, Julian said. We got our Abby back. She said she knew Abby recognized her and her son, Timothy, and daughter, Megan. As soon as we got there and we said Abby and she came running, Julian said. She was bouncing back and forth between the kids and myself. We were all in tears, including Leslie. Wilkinson said although she is still looking for an Australian shepherd to adopt, she is happy Abby was reunited with her family. I am so glad Holly found her dog again; I can imagine that she was so distraught. Stormy is such a great dog, she said. Missing dog reunited with Chipley owner SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISER Abby the Australian shepherd was reunited with her family in Chipley after being found by Animal Rescue Control of Bay County after being missing for 8 months.

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Special to Extra GREENHEAD The Greenhead Volunteer Fire Department is proud to take delivery of the newest addition to its reghting community. This 1999 Volvo/New Lexington pumper/tanker carries 2,100 gallons of water and has a 1,000 gpm PTO pump. It has a diesel engine and automatic transmission. It features three 10-inch Newton quick dumps, which can be remotely controlled from the cab. The portable dump tank is lowered to easy working height by electric assist. Although its primary use will be as a tanker to supply water to the main pumper on scene, it also carries two sections of preloaded 1-inch hose so it can function as a main pumper on scene. Two reghters, Mike Churchwell and Michael Churchwell, drove the truck home from North Carolina. It was placed in service Friday. This purchase represents a rst for Washington County re departments, as it was the rst major purchase since instituting the purchase order system. Because of the amount of the purchase price, approval by the Washington County Board of County Commissioners was needed before issuing a purchase order to spend the money from the allocated budget. This is also the rst vehicle purchased under the new funding agreement, which shall be jointly titled to Washington County and Greenhead Volunteer Fire Department Inc. With the addition of this truck and the previous purchase of the 1995 Pierce Quantum pumper, the department feels it is in good shape to serve the community. VHS JROTC VERNON On March 13, the Vernon High School JROTC hosted and competed in the Quiz Bowl competition with Holmes County High School and Chipley High School. Vernon, Chipley and Holmes County were quizzed on six categories: Citizenship and American History; Leadership Theory and Application; Wellness, Fitness and First Aid; Foundations for Success; Geography and Earth Science; and Character and Leadership Development. All six categories pertain to skills and knowledge they learned in the classroom. Our team consisted of Cadet 1st Sgt. Destiny Brady, Cadet Col. Carolyn Poppell, Cadet Sgt. David Lee, and Cadet Gregory Keister. Chipley took rst, Vernon took second and Holmes County took third. We thank all the teams for their hard work. Keeping our teeth clean is vital to our health and wellbeing, and that is no different for our pets. Ideally, you should brush your pets teeth daily, said Dr. Johnathon Dodd, clinical professor at Texas A&Ms College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Make sure you are using special toothpaste that is made for pets and is safe for them to swallow. They cannot spit or rinse like we do, so our pets need specic kinds of toothpaste that is not harmful if ingested. Gum disease is the most common disease occurring in pets today. It results from the build-up of soft dental plaque on the surfaces of the teeth around the gums. The bacteria in dental plaque irritate the gum tissue if it accumulates, which leads to infection in the bone surrounding the teeth. If the surface of the tooth does not stay clean, tartar begins to form within a few days. The unbrushed tooth provides a surface that boosts further plaque accumulation. If plaque is allowed to accumulate, tartar is difcult to remove without dental instruments. For our pets, gum disease means bad breath and painful, irritated gums that can lead to bleeding, loss of appetite, and the loss of teeth if the roots have been affected. There is also the possibility that the bacteria surrounding the root of the tooth gains access to the bloodstream, which can lead to microscopic damage of the heart, liver and kidney. As the severity of the gum disease increases, so does the damage. The best way to ward off potential oral disease in your pet is by keeping your pets teeth clean and checkups regular. Your veterinarian and local pet retail stores should carry toothbrushes and toothpaste for your pets. Different avors of toothpastes are available for dog and cats. A helpful guide to go by when considering your pets oral health is the Veterinary Oral Health Council website. They have a compiled list of products that are intended to help reduce the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth of animals and have created the VOHC seal of approval. To see the full list of VOHC approved products, visit www.vohc. org.

Not everybody realizes how important it is to follow protocol. Many Philistines in our society do things so haphazardly that it is a real affront to those of us who know better. I will be the rst to admit that, throughout my lifetime, I have not always been committed to civilized behavior. It took me a long time to realize what civilized behavior really was. Before I got married, I had an idea of what I thought civilized behavior was. Unbeknownst to me I had wandered about in sheer ignorance. After getting married, I realized just how uncivilized by behavior had been up to this point. Fortunately, for me, my bride was more than willing to take up the challenge of nurturing me to a more civilized behavior. I would not say she has been overwhelmingly successful in this attempt; however, I am a lot more civilized today than I was prior, which has to count for something. One of the things she attributes to civilized behavior has to do with cleanliness, in particular, clean clothes. This brings me to the subject at hand: the proper etiquette for eating an ice cream sundae. It appears, so I am told, that the correct way to eat an ice cream sundae is not to get any on your shirt. My favorite ice cream sundae is hot fudge, which is humanly impossible to eat without getting something on your shirt. No matter how careful, I always drip hot fudge on my shirt. The cleaner the shirt, the bigger the smudge. It is for this reason that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has laid down some very strict rules when it comes to ice cream sundaes: No ice cream sundaes! Period! For the most part, I do not let her catch me eating an ice cream sundae. It is more for her good than for mine that I keep this a secret. Whenever she discovers I have had an ice cream sundae, it affects her blood pressure, not to mention the wear and tear on her vocal cords. (I will not even mention my eardrums.) I have tried everything under the sun to master the etiquette of properly eating an ice cream sundae. No matter what I do or try, the result is always the same: some little smidgen of fudge on my clothing somewhere. I recently came to a milestone in my pursuit of ice cream sundaes. It went simply like this. Because a hot fudge sundae usually drips on my shirt evidencing the fact that I indulged in the forbidden delicacy, I switched to strawberry sundaes, where there is absolutely no chance of smearing your shirt with fudge. This plan of mine worked for several months but came crashing down this past week. I had indulged in a very delicious strawberry sundae and thought I had gotten away with it. When I got home, my wife looked at me and then said, What is that stain on your shirt? Knowing that if I confess I had an ice cream sundae I would be in deep trouble, the thought occurred to me until I took my chance. I think its lipstick, I said with a smile on my face. Oh, I thought it was strawberry syrup, she said. I am not sure what that means, but I did not want to pursue the subject at the time. I am learning that some things are not worth the effort. The apostle Paul thought this too. All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not (1 Corinthians 10:23 KJV). There is a proper way of doing everything, and some things are not worth doing at all. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

At the request of the board, Attorney Jeff Goodman wrote a policy restricting the use of county dirt on private property. Were not in the dirt hauling business, Commissioner Bill Parish said. This is in no way to punish people; its just expensive to haul and opens the county up for so much liability. Board Chairman Monty Merchant said with the county being freed up from the private sector, it will have that much more time and resources to focus on county needs. Parish requested Goodman write an identical agreement for rock. Hauling rock is no different from hauling dirt, Parish said. Goodman agreed to write the policy and present it before the board at the next meeting. The Paid Time Off Abuse Policy the board had considered died for lack of a second, but Goodman agreed to bring it before the board at the next meeting. I just think Commissioner David Whitaker should have a say as well, Parish said in regard to Whitakers absence at that board meeting. Holmes County Auditor Hilton Galloway led an Audit Exit Conference, explaining there were a few discrepancies, but the overall audit was very positive. One issue was that you chose not to nd out what the county is committing to future county retirees, Galloway said. As for the countys budget, it is very well balanced.

Cutts is one of three people receiving a Florida Folk Heritage Award this year, said Blaine Q. Waide, state folklorist with the Bureau of Historic Preservation. The ceremony will be at 6:30 p.m. at Mission San Luis, 2100 W. Tennessee St. It is open to the public. Laurence Cutts embodies the spirit of a Florida Folk Heritage Award, Waide said. These awards recognize outstanding folk artists for their longstanding contributions to Floridas traditional heritage. A third-generation beekeeper, Mr. Cutts has devoted nearly 75 years to carrying on his family heritage, as well as the state of Floridas rich beekeeping traditions. He has traveled worldwide to share his knowledge, expertise and family stories about the traditional art of beekeeping. I have met nobody more deserving of this award, the highest honor of its kind in the state. Mr. Cutts has spent his lifetime promoting and perpetuating beekeeping in Florida.

LIVE COOKING DEMONSTRATIONS! of debt and accumulated no new debt last year. It was a pretty good year in utilizing your resources. Commissioner Kenneth Williams said the board chose not to conduct the study because it would cost $8,000 to $10,000 just to get an estimate. The cost has been greatly reduced since then, Galloway said. Its now around $3,500 and only has to be done every three years, but this really has been an issue across the country. Government agencies everywhere have no idea how to project that amount mainly due to the Baby Boomers making it unforeseeable. County employee Hubert Hendrix asked the board about its sign-making policy, saying the county had started making signs for itself and local agencies 10 years ago to save money but now is getting requests from local towns for parks. We save a lot of money by making it ourselves, because if we were to purchase them, it would cost us four times as much per sign, Hendrix said. And as much as we have to replace some signs, thatd be very expensive very quick. I just want to know if we should be dealing with local towns, and if so, how much are we going to charge them? Goodman said his concern is that the county is staying within state guidelines for signage requirements for all mandated signs. Parish said he didnt believe the county should be in the sign-making business. Hendrix said he would contact the state to make sure all the speci cations are up to code. After much discussion, 911 Director Clint Erickson said not only is there a problem with people stealing and relocating signs, but there is also a growing problem of people putting up personal signs. The board gave Erickson the authority to identify signs that are stolen, relocated or unauthorized by 911 and work with the attorney to have a letter sent out and be reinforced by law enforcement as a second-degree misdemeanor. After a public hearing, the road abandonment was tabled after local resident Tom Smith said abandoning the road would mean cutting off access to his property. This is the rst Ive heard of this, Goodman said. Let me look into the matter and bring it before the board at the next meeting. We wont need to hold another public hearing, and if this is cleared up, then well just need to publish after adopting it, and after 30 days it will be made effective. At the boards Jan. 16 meeting, resident Jeffery Johnson had raised the request to properly vacate a street that dead-ends next to a piece of property he purchased recently from Collette. Its 8.5 acres of usable land, but if that piece of street was properly vacated it would be 10.6, Johnson said. Landowner Daniel Collette said the boards old resolution didnt include the lower half to be properly vacated, but that he was ready to sign the required paper work and pay the $500 to place up the sign. Weve got to run an ad and hold a public hearing at the next meeting in March, Goodman said. The board approved of Hendrixs request to purchase an air compressor for $2,400 using FEMA funds. The board also approved to raise the preference for using a local vendor for purchases from 3 percent to 5 percent. This means if there is a 5 percent or less difference between bidded items, then the county can choose the local vendor over the lowest bidder. the land in 2002 and continuing to the groundbreaking ceremony on Valentines Day 2007. What a celebration we had that day, Blitch said. We did something that was never thought possible. With a lot of hard work and perseverance, we made it happen. On April 1, 2008, the hospital had its grand opening. Blitch said the hospital has seen a 133 percent increase in patients since its opening. Weve got a rehabilitation department now, Blitch said. Weve got acute therapy, swingbed rehabilitation and outpatient therapy. She said acute therapy is good for falls, orthopedic pain, after surgery and COPD issues, and swingbed rehabilitation is good for a short-term stay at the hospital when medically stable after an acute stay. Swingbed rehabilitation usage has increased by 240 percent, Blitch said. We also have a physical therapy gym and physical therapy pool. We offer aquatic therapy and occupational therapy. She said they have received so many good reviews of the aquatic therapy because it accelerates rehabilitation while increasing range of motion with less pain. It takes the weight off the injured area, and the patients love the therapeutic properties of the warm water, Blitch said. Occupational therapy gives you the strength to go back to doing the simple, everyday things required with work at home or on the job. The hospitals Digital Mammography Department does an average of 1,200 mammograms a year, she said. DMH also has a Prodigy Primo Lunar Bone Densitometer, which measures bone density and helps in the diagnosis of osteoporosis, which is very common in women, Blitch said. The hospital also offers mobile nuclear medicine, a non-invasive study to determine disease in many bodily organs and bone structure using less radiation then an X-ray or CT scan, and mobile MRI. Their general and laparoscopic surgical procedures include gallbladder, colonoscopy, hernia, biopsies, scopes, carpel tunnel, hysterectomy, mastectomy, tubal ligation, ovarian cyst, adhesions, tonsillectomy and hemorrhoidectomy. We do 95 percent of our lab work in house, Blitch said. And that includes cardiac markers, chemistry panels, liver function tests, potassium, protime, urine culture, drug testing for employment, complete blood count, lipid pro le, thyroid testing, hemoglobin A1C, routine urinalysis and rapid strep. We also have a Wound Care Center, which is a chronic problem with those who have diabetes. She thanked the DMH Auxiliary, which contributes time and funds for special projects. We love our volunteers, Blitch said. They make such a difference and raise the hospital around $10,000 a year. DMH will have a Golf Scramble and Golf Ball Drop on April 12 at the Dogwood Lakes Golf Club. Were also celebrating our fth anniversary on Monday, April 1, Blitch said. Well have a Customer Appreciation Day with free lunch and screenings. We usually have important people like Marti Coley show up; she spent last year with us. Blitch said the hospital provides many free services to the community, such as free screenings at events, educational luncheons, awareness events such as the Heart Walk and tours for students, giving them information on what it takes to become a doctor, nurse, technician, etc. We feed the children every year at the Holmes County Public Librarys end-of-the-year celebration, she said. Thats just to name a few of the services provided to the community. This biggest service, she said, is called Bad Debt and Charity. This is where we forgive bad debt for our customers, Blitch said. In 2007, we gave back $1 million in debt, and in 2012, we gave back $2.5 million. If we were a typical business, that kind of expenses wouldve done us in, but were about the community. DMHs Donna Burroughs spoke on the difference between HMOs and PPOs: HMOs allow you to pick your physician, while a PPO has a group of physicians to choose from. Always ask questions when choosing, Burroughs said. These plans open on Oct. 11 and end on Dec. 7, so take your time in choosing. Remember to ask the important questions, like what your responsibility will be and what do they cover. DMH doctor and Chief of Staff Patrick Hawkins spoke on how appreciative he was of DMH. I grew up in Bonifay and eventually went to school at Florida State University, Hawkins said. Thats a lot of student loans, and on top of that, while I was in college I decided to get married, which meant more debt. During my second year, Doctors Memorial Hospital gave me a scholarship and took a huge burden off me, and theyve been a huge support. Hawkins said it was amazing to see that we offer a lot of services and much more than anyone realizes. It was revolutionary what we could do with what we had. Electronic charting was really nice for sending and receiving information to and from facilities with such ease. It greatly improved the quality of care. He said that DMH had all you needed from a large hospital right here at home. Im very proud of our hospital, and Im very proud of our community, Hawkins said. Youd be surprised at what we can offer. DMH Administrator JoAnn Baker asked for the communitys support. You should be very proud of your hospital, Baker said. We need your support and your input. You might think were magicians the way we put $2.5 (million) into relieving debt to our patients and still be able to continue on, but this is a community hospital, and if it wasnt for the support of the community, we wouldnt have been able to make all that go away. Baker asked that if anyone had any questions, comments or concerns to contact the hospital through Human Resources at 547-8004. Were your community hospital, and we love you, Baker said. They wrapped up with the video they did for the Pink Dance Competition for MedLine, which Blitch said was done by the hospital in honor of one of its nurses who was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The awards are given to outstanding folk artists and folk culture advocates who have made longstanding contributions to the folk cultural resources of the state. Established in 1985, the program parallels the National Heritage Fellowships, according to the state Division of Historical Resources website, heritage.com. Laurence is passionate about bees, Circuit Judge Mark Moseley wrote in his letter supporting Cutts nomination for the award. He has traveled the state, the country and the world to promote the science and traditions of bee-keeping. In 2012, Cutts was inducted into the Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame for his distinguished career as a beekeeper. Laurence is an inventor, poet, song/hymn writer and story-teller, Moseley said. He is both a repository and ready sharer of this Floridas rich and noble traditions. More than that, he is part of Floridas rich and noble heritage. Cutts father was a beekeeper, and at the age of 16, Laurence began raising queens to sell. This grew into a business in which he produced and sold honey and provided bees for pollination for various crops in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. Cutts worked in this business until 1985, when he accepted a position overseeing the states apiary inspections. During his employment with the state, the varroa mite and small hive beetle were creating major problems for the beekeepers. Cutts was instrumental in bringing the need for research to reduce beehive losses to the forefront. Throughout his tenure with the state, he was always accessible to the states beekeepers for advice and direction. Cutts also invented and still is marketing a new beetle trap through various bee supply companies in the United States. This trap promises to be a better deterrent for the small hive beetle. Among his many achievements, Cutts has served as president of the Tupelo Beekeepers Association (1956-1963), president of the Florida Beekeepers Association (1956, 2003-2005) vice-president of the Apiary Inspectors of America (1991), president of Apiary inspectors of America (1992), secretary of the Florida Honey Packers Association (1958), president of the Kate Smith Elementary School P.T.A. (1970), chairman of the Honey Advisory committee Florida Farm Bureau (1977-1985), a member of the Agricultural Advisory Council (1977-85) and secretary of the Honey Bee Technical Council (1986-2003). We dont know of anyone who has given more to this segment of agriculture and is truly deserving of this recognition, said George McAdams of the Bay County Farm Bureau. CUTTS from page A1 during the event included the Bonifay Elementary School Drummers, students from the Dance Center of Bonifay, the Troy Dampier Band, the Holmes County High School and Bonifay Middle School Choir, Jayme Bryan, Dancing in the Streets with Angela, AFGT Praise Band, Robert Couch and the Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ. Students from Bonifay Taekwondo U.S.A. performed a demonstration of their skills, and students from the Holmes County High School JROTC were on hand to help keep the festival running smoothly. Dozens of vendors provided food, arts and crafts to round out the festival feeling. This is a great event and reminds me of the Disney Village when shot in Disney World, Shroyer said. These are real people, and we have having a ball here this weekend. Bill Jones from Panama City Beach, accompanied by his family, spent the day admiring the classic cars while his wife and children enjoyed the amusements and musical entertainment. This is a great car show by itself, Jones said. Add the rest of this huge event, and there is truly something for everyone.

OPINION www.bonifaynow.com APage 4SectionWednesday, March 20, 2013A few days ago, the Prattler received a telephone call from Joyce Williams Stan eld, a Holmes County native who explained she had read and enjoyed my article concerning my great uncle, Jasper Green Wells, and his family. The caller told me that my kinsman lived on Montana Avenue in north Bonifay and she had enjoyed many visits sitting and talking with my uncle and wife, Aunt Linnie Baker Wells, as they all sat on the front porch of the Wells home. Mrs. Stan eld told me her family moved to Columbus, Ga., and later to Grif n, Ga., where she still makes her home. This call again called to my attention the numbers of people who have told me how much they enjoy having the Prattle column being printed in the Holmes County Times-Advertiser. Among those making comments about my articles include Shawn Ingram, who was associated with this father, Mr. Carl Ingram, in the long-time operation of the Western Auto Store in Bonifay. Roy Messer and wife, Donna Land Messser, residents of Holmes County, told me several months ago they read and enjoy my weekly narratives in the papers. At the funeral service for Malzie Wells Smith a few months ago, held at Campground Cemetery north of Westville, Mrs. Steverson and Mrs. Smith, associated with the Gordon and Oakley Smith families, spoke kind words regarding my writings in the Holmes County paper. At the recent Wild Game Dinner at Poplar Springs School, Gwen Young and husband, John Young, parents of local attorney, Brandon Young, told me of their readership of the Prattle and especially appreciated the historical nature of my material. Mrs. Young is a retired Holmes County teacher and taught with sister, Hazel Tison When talking to the lady in Grif n, Ga., I immediately surmised that her family moved to Columbus from Bonifay seeking employment in the cotton mills. I did not inquire if this was the case, and my guess may be strictly conjecture. The call has caused me to re ect on the many, many families I recall of having relocated to Columbus for work in the textile industry. Some remained for a lifetime and some gave up and returned to this area seeking different livelihoods. One Holmes County family, Otho Consford and wife, Odell Barber Consford, remained in the county until their children, Willard and Wilma, had nished high school before making the move looking for greener pastures. Whether true or not, I cannot fully attest, but reportedly Otho was unhappy with the move and looked for an opportunity to move back south. Upon seeing he would not likely return to Holmes County, he reportedly told his family that in case he did not get to leave Columbus before dying that his request was for his body to be placed in the Chattahoochee River where he could oat as far as possible back to his native homeland. When my dads sister, Virginia (Jenny) Wells, married Arthur Hinson in 1934, the country was still in the throes of the Depression Era. In desperation, the couple moved to Columbus for work in the cotton mill industry. After several months of disillusionment, they returned home and tried their hand at many other endeavors but never left the area again. My fathers cousin, Luvern Harrell, oldest daughter of O. D Brock Harrell and W. Alto Harrell, married Hubert Hammond. They soon sought employment in the factories of Columbus and lived in housing provided for employees by the company. Their living arrangement was the only one observed by the writer of those who moved to Columbus. In one of Hugh Wells many efforts to provide for his large family, he hauled peaches from the Georgia area, peddling them along his favorite established route. In the early 1940s, the entrepreneur planned a peach run to the Columbus area. It ended up being an opportunity for our Aunt O.D., along with young daughters Janie and Myrtle, to join our dad, Hugh, our granddaddy, Tom Wells, and with Perry and Jim Wells being allowed to tag along. The rst hazard of the trip was some serious sunburn to the four youngsters who made the trip standing in the open bed of the pickup truck. Upon leaving the Harrells with Luvern in Columbus, the peach seekers went their way to load up with peaches. We were to drive back to Luvern and Huberts for the night before proceeding home to Washington County. Hazard number two overtook us after the truck was loaded with fresh peaches. An overload spring gave way, dropping the full load down to the axle, thus disabling our movement. Suf ce to say, it was approaching midnight when we made it back to the Hammond home. Very little is remembered about the overnight stay except it was rather crowded with all the additional people converging on the household. Re ections down through the years has told me of the obvious imposition such a venture brought to the young couple, who attempted to be gracious hosts even though ill-prepared to handle seven additional people thrust upon them. All the combined experiences has brought my mind to another Jim and Jesse protest song titled Cotton Mill Man, written by a man named Langston and recorded by the duo in 1985. The lyrics: I was born in the shadow of a cotton mill smoke stack down in Alabamas bottom land, where my grand pappy broke his back pulling on a cotton sack, to raise my Pa to be a cotton mill man. Ive got lots of memories government commodities when all our meat came in a can. While the boss man on the hill bought his steak and ate his ll then called upon to clean his grill the cotton mill man. I saw my woman cry when her baby daughter died. Why the doctor never came, the lack of money was to blame. Then the lament: Lord, dont let my son grow up to be a sweaty cotton mill man! See you all next week.PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells SPECIAL TO TIMES-ADVERTISERJim and Jesse and The Virginia Boys: Dave Sutherland, Allen Shelton, Jim Buchanan and Don McHan.Prattler recalls Georgia memoriesIts March, and schools and colleges are all having spring vacations. Getting most of our news coverage from local TV about spring break gives us negative connotations. Wall-towall, nearly nude bodies hold beer cans or funnels coming from a keg into several mouths. It is not a scene where I would want my grandchildren to be. Fortunately, although most of my seven are near that age (two have just graduated, three are in college), this kind of scene does not attract them either. Already this spring, one alcohol poisoning death and one serious auto accident has been recorded. Invariably each year, too, deaths or injuries from balcony hopping have occurred. Many unreported misadventures have occurred or will occur. The beach court where misdemeanors are settled reveal the scope of the problems. Some wholesome things also happen during spring break, though. For my granddaughters, just being home with family and friends, going shopping, even visiting aged grandparents or a day trip to a not-so-public beach is a good break for them. But some out of the area young people come to the beach and engage in ministry. One group called Beach Reach use their school vacation to visit Panama City Beach and share their Christian testimony. They offer bus rides to and from any destination; restaurants, clubs, parks, shopping centers. You name it. During these contacts, they are able to share their faith. This ministry also keeps drivers who have imbibed too much from driving in that condition. Other Christian ministries also are seen at the beach. Habitat For Humanity has a group of students who come to Marianna each year from New York and Illinois to build a home for some deserving family. My sister and her husband, Muriel and Roy Turner, always host a group of them. I also saw on the TV news where a group were building a home in Calloway which had been destroyed by re. So not all activities are hedonistic. But to answer my own question, where did Spring Break originate? Perhaps it came with a longer school year. When we were teaching, we might have 3 days. Then, we used that time to plant the garden. Later after the children were established elsewhere, we enjoyed a visit to Southwest Florida where our daughter lived, and we could sh on Babcock Ranch. I would guess that the behavior we see on TV associated with Spring Break came from the movie, Where The Boys Are. When I was in school in the s and s, we only went to school for eight months. I remember celebrating my May birthday for the rst time in 1948, the rst year that Florida had nine-month schools. Sometimes in the beginning of the school year, we would have half day sessions in order for students to go home early to assist in the cotton or peanut harvest, but I dont recall any short session in the spring to harvest produce which was our biggest crop. Here in Florida, Spring Break gives a big boost to our economy with the early in ux of students in a time when not much else is going on. The snowbirds have mostly gone home, and the summer season is yet to come. The school break is good for those who undergo the stress of the present-day classroom. I am happy for the opportunity to have family members visit, especially this year to help me get my new computer going. (Not what they had in mind for a visit to Mama and Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa.) If you missed me last week blame it on the computer. I am committed to learning to use what I have, though, since my friend Jim Helms spent many hours setting up, Cindy, Haley Glen, and Hiram invested considerable time trying to help me. But with the help of a good tech support team, I am con dent that Ill soon have conquered the beast.HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Whoever invented Spring Break?

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, March 20, 2013By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County District School Board members discussed on Monday increasing bus driver safety education to biannual instead of annually. School Board member Jason Motley initiated the discussion of bus safety by asking for the curriculum involved in the annual bus driver workshops. Superintendent Eddie Dixon said it included CPR training, conict resolution, the referral process, etc. I just want to make sure that our bus drivers are being educated in how to deal with confrontations, much like the one bus driver had sto face in Midland City, said Motley. We need to get a little proactive until the state gives us instructions on what to do. Our bus drivers arent getting what they need and they need it at least twice a year with possible discussion and input from the drivers. Dixon said that he would look into what was required to get something like that set up. We do have certain state requirements that must be followed by state but it wouldnt hurt to expand that training to be done twice a year, said Dixon. Resident and teacher at Bethlehem High School Tamra Kriser was present to ask the board about the progress of Bethlehem High Schools upcoming art and music classes once again. The Holmes County Choir came to Bethlehem and put on an amazing performance, said Kriser. I was just wondering when wed be able to be put on the agenda to get this started. Weve got over 700 signatures from 700 individuals that want to see this happen. Kriser requested that she be placed on the agenda Aprils meeting and Dixon explained that it was a personnel issue and couldnt be placed on the agenda until Dixon had a recommendation and that wouldnt be done until the regular hiring over the summer. The only denite answer we can give you right now is that its being looked into, said Dixon. Were looking at every avenue, for instance were trying to see if a position has to be created or if we can use an already existing position to ll that need; not necessarily saying that the person would come from within our existing staff but that we wont have to create a new position. We love what Holmes County Choir has done; its a wonderful program and wed love to see that at all of our schools. Chairman Rusty Williams thanked the City of Bonifay and the Bonifay Fire Department for their recent honoring of the Holmes County High Schools boys basketball team for winning state. It was a wonderful presentation honoring our boys, said Williams. The City of Bonifay held a parade and ceremony for the boys and the Bonifay Fire Department provided a great lunch. They were very generous and I want everyone to know how much we appreciate them. The next scheduled board meeting is set for 9 a.m. on April 2 at the Holmes County District School Board located at 701 East Pennsylvania Ave. in Bonifay.

Serving You Is Our Most Important Product*Property Insurance is not available in the state of Florida from Auto-Owners Insurance. From Staff ReportsTALLAHASSEE The Florida Commission on Ethics issued an opinion on city ofcials and silent auction bids during its meeting on March 8 in Tallahassee. The commission adopted an advisory opinion stating that a member of a city council, who places the highest bid on a poker party donated to a silent auction by a pari-mutual facility that is the principal of a lobbyist of the city, has not received a gift as the term is de ned by law, according to a news release from the commission. Rather, he has purchased an item at fair market value. Nor has the council member received a gift when the pari-mutual facility, as a part of its business operations, makes a contribution to a charity chosen by a guest of the councilmembers poker party, according to the commission. In another opinion, the commission determined a mayors travel to conferences and events paid for by others would not be considered gifts to the city, and consistent with legislative intent, and the commissions precedent, the travel constituted gifts to the mayor personally. The opinion states that were the mayors travel paid for by his own agency and his agency were then reimbursed by a third party, the reimbursement received by the agency would be considered a gift to the agency. Funds received by the city from third parties and deposited into a public fund, which are then used to pay for of cial travel by city ofcials, also would be considered a gift to the agency. The Florida Commission on Ethics is an independent nine-member commission formed in 1974 to review complaints led under the statutory Code of Ethics and to answer questions from public of cials about potential con icts of interest through its issuance of advisory opinions. If the Ethics Commission believes a violation of the law may have occurred, it may decide to hold a public hearing. If it concludes a violation has been committed, it may recommend civil penalties that include removal from of ce or employment and nes up to $10,000 per violation.

Eventually, though, Animal Rescue Control of Bay County called Holly Julian of Chipley with no doubt that their Stormy was our Abby, Julian said. Before her disappearance, the dog was part-time inside, parttime penned outside and part-time loose outside. She would wander a little in the neighborhood but would never disappear, Julian said. But near the end of July last year, Abby wandered away. Several weeks later, we decided something had happened to her and shes never coming home, Julian said. What they didnt know was that the Australian shepherd stray was picked up by Bay County Animal Control on July 23, and ve days later, Animal Rescue Control began screening her for adoption. When selecting animals for adoption, in addition to general animal shelter and foster home availability, the agency conducts temperament testing to see if the dog seems to have personality, said Charles Cromer, president of ARC, a local all-volunteer organization that helps local animals nd homes. Cromer said Abby is an AusiAusi mix, intelligent, very peopleoriented, easy to train and normally pretty outgoing. Leslie Wilkinson of Monticello thought the same. They are probably the smartest dogs on the planet, and theyre also loyal, Wilkinson said. She said she found Stormy online and began the process of adopting her through ARC, adding she looked a lot like our dog that died and we were looking for an Australian shepherd. Stormy was not a perfect match for the Wilkinson family, but Wilkinson soon received a phone call from ARC informing her someone else wanted Stormy. Everything that happened was an amazing story; it was just meant to be, Wilkinson said. Cromer said after he learned the Wilkinsons had decided against keeping Stormy, he posted a photo on Facebook, hoping to nd another pet foster parent. It was kind of amazing that the day that we were re-homing the adoptive family was needing us to re-home Stormy the original owners saw a post on Facebook, Cromer said. ARCs policy is if the pet was a stray, the original owner can reclaim it after undergoing a verication process that includes the submission of veterinary records, old photos and an accurate description of the pet. Its kind of hard for us to say, You cant have your dog back, he said, adding microchipping and ID tags are an asset for such cases. After Julian proved the dog once belonged to her, Cromer linked Wilkinson with Julian, and Julian was reunited with Abby on March 4. We had her since she was 4 weeks old, so we are really adjusted to her personality, Julian said. We got our Abby back. She said she knew Abby recognized her and her son, Timothy, and daughter, Megan. As soon as we got there and we said Abby and she came running, Julian said. She was bouncing back and forth between the kids and myself. We were all in tears, including Leslie. Wilkinson said although she is still looking for an Australian shepherd to adopt, she is happy Abby was reunited with her family. I am so glad Holly found her dog again; I can imagine that she was so distraught. Stormy is such a great dog, she said.Missing dog reunited with Chipley owner SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISERAbby the Australian shepherd was reunited with her family in Chipley after being found by Animal Rescue Control of Bay County after being missing for 8 months.

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 ExtraWashington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3Special to ExtraGREENHEAD The Greenhead Volunteer Fire Department is proud to take delivery of the newest addition to its reghting community. This 1999 Volvo/New Lexington pumper/tanker carries 2,100 gallons of water and has a 1,000 gpm PTO pump. It has a diesel engine and automatic transmission. It features three 10-inch Newton quick dumps, which can be remotely controlled from the cab. The portable dump tank is lowered to easy working height by electric assist. Although its primary use will be as a tanker to supply water to the main pumper on scene, it also carries two sections of preloaded 1-inch hose so it can function as a main pumper on scene. Two reghters, Mike Churchwell and Michael Churchwell, drove the truck home from North Carolina. It was placed in service Friday. This purchase represents a rst for Washington County re departments, as it was the rst major purchase since instituting the purchase order system. Because of the amount of the purchase price, approval by the Washington County Board of County Commissioners was needed before issuing a purchase order to spend the money from the allocated budget. This is also the rst vehicle purchased under the new funding agreement, which shall be jointly titled to Washington County and Greenhead Volunteer Fire Department Inc. With the addition of this truck and the previous purchase of the 1995 Pierce Quantum pumper, the department feels it is in good shape to serve the community. VHS JROTCVERNON On March 13, the Vernon High School JROTC hosted and competed in the Quiz Bowl competition with Holmes County High School and Chipley High School. Vernon, Chipley and Holmes County were quizzed on six categories: Citizenship and American History; Leadership Theory and Application; Wellness, Fitness and First Aid; Foundations for Success; Geography and Earth Science; and Character and Leadership Development. All six categories pertain to skills and knowledge they learned in the classroom. Our team consisted of Cadet 1st Sgt. Destiny Brady, Cadet Col. Carolyn Poppell, Cadet Sgt. David Lee, and Cadet Gregory Keister. Chipley took rst, Vernon took second and Holmes County took third. We thank all the teams for their hard work. Keeping our teeth clean is vital to our health and wellbeing, and that is no different for our pets. Ideally, you should brush your pets teeth daily, said Dr. Johnathon Dodd, clinical professor at Texas A&Ms College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Make sure you are using special toothpaste that is made for pets and is safe for them to swallow. They cannot spit or rinse like we do, so our pets need specic kinds of toothpaste that is not harmful if ingested. Gum disease is the most common disease occurring in pets today. It results from the build-up of soft dental plaque on the surfaces of the teeth around the gums. The bacteria in dental plaque irritate the gum tissue if it accumulates, which leads to infection in the bone surrounding the teeth. If the surface of the tooth does not stay clean, tartar begins to form within a few days. The unbrushed tooth provides a surface that boosts further plaque accumulation. If plaque is allowed to accumulate, tartar is difcult to remove without dental instruments. For our pets, gum disease means bad breath and painful, irritated gums that can lead to bleeding, loss of appetite, and the loss of teeth if the roots have been affected. There is also the possibility that the bacteria surrounding the root of the tooth gains access to the bloodstream, which can lead to microscopic damage of the heart, liver and kidney. As the severity of the gum disease increases, so does the damage. The best way to ward off potential oral disease in your pet is by keeping your pets teeth clean and checkups regular. Your veterinarian and local pet retail stores should carry toothbrushes and toothpaste for your pets. Different avors of toothpastes are available for dog and cats. A helpful guide to go by when considering your pets oral health is the Veterinary Oral Health Council website. They have a compiled list of products that are intended to help reduce the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth of animals and have created the VOHC seal of approval. To see the full list of VOHC approved products, visit www.vohc. org.Chipley JROTCCHIPLEY Cadets C/MAJ Regan Walls, C/SGT Michelle Fuston, C/1LT Brittney Sanders, C/CPT Stephen Kauffman and C/2LT Michael Laurie from Chipley High School competed in the Academic Bowl on March 13 at in Washington County.

Not everybody realizes how important it is to follow protocol. Many Philistines in our society do things so haphazardly that it is a real affront to those of us who know better. I will be the rst to admit that, throughout my lifetime, I have not always been committed to civilized behavior. It took me a long time to realize what civilized behavior really was. Before I got married, I had an idea of what I thought civilized behavior was. Unbeknownst to me I had wandered about in sheer ignorance. After getting married, I realized just how uncivilized by behavior had been up to this point. Fortunately, for me, my bride was more than willing to take up the challenge of nurturing me to a more civilized behavior. I would not say she has been overwhelmingly successful in this attempt; however, I am a lot more civilized today than I was prior, which has to count for something. One of the things she attributes to civilized behavior has to do with cleanliness, in particular, clean clothes. This brings me to the subject at hand: the proper etiquette for eating an ice cream sundae. It appears, so I am told, that the correct way to eat an ice cream sundae is not to get any on your shirt. My favorite ice cream sundae is hot fudge, which is humanly impossible to eat without getting something on your shirt. No matter how careful, I always drip hot fudge on my shirt. The cleaner the shirt, the bigger the smudge. It is for this reason that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has laid down some very strict rules when it comes to ice cream sundaes: No ice cream sundaes! Period! For the most part, I do not let her catch me eating an ice cream sundae. It is more for her good than for mine that I keep this a secret. Whenever she discovers I have had an ice cream sundae, it affects her blood pressure, not to mention the wear and tear on her vocal cords. (I will not even mention my eardrums.) I have tried everything under the sun to master the etiquette of properly eating an ice cream sundae. No matter what I do or try, the result is always the same: some little smidgen of fudge on my clothing somewhere. I recently came to a milestone in my pursuit of ice cream sundaes. It went simply like this. Because a hot fudge sundae usually drips on my shirt evidencing the fact that I indulged in the forbidden delicacy, I switched to strawberry sundaes, where there is absolutely no chance of smearing your shirt with fudge. This plan of mine worked for several months but came crashing down this past week. I had indulged in a very delicious strawberry sundae and thought I had gotten away with it. When I got home, my wife looked at me and then said, What is that stain on your shirt? Knowing that if I confess I had an ice cream sundae I would be in deep trouble, the thought occurred to me until I took my chance. I think its lipstick, I said with a smile on my face. Oh, I thought it was strawberry syrup, she said. I am not sure what that means, but I did not want to pursue the subject at the time. I am learning that some things are not worth the effort. The apostle Paul thought this too. All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not (1 Corinthians 10:23 KJV). There is a proper way of doing everything, and some things are not worth doing at all. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.
