A spectacular reworks display concludes the event.” Burns said this year’s celebration will include free food, fellowship, entertainment and reworks. “It is going to make that Sunday afternoon on the 30th of June a very special day in the life of our citizens as we celebrate the wonderful gift of freedom. We will hold the celebration at the recreation center. All the churches will be set up in the large ball eld, and parking will take place in the adjacent elds.” District hopes to build new elementary, middle school By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — Superintendent of Holmes County Schools Eddie Dixon announced the district is in the process of nding funds to build new a new Bonifay Elementary School and a new Bonifay Middle School during the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Chamber Breakfast on Thursday. “We’ve done all we can for those two schools, and now they are beyond what we could possibly do for them,” Dixon said. “My vision is to have kindergarten through fth grade together again and that both schools will be in facilities that can withstand a hurricane ve. Right now we are ghting hard for funding.” Chamber coordinator Julia Bullington also announced a few bills passed recently in the Florida Legislature that affect Holmes County. “There are days set aside where the sales taxes are exempt on backto-school items,” Bullington said. “This year it was passed that the day will be held on Aug. 2 through Aug. 4 and now includes computers up to $750. This includes tablets, laptops and electronic readers.” She also said an insurance exemption was passed for agritourism. Agritourism is attracting visitors to the farm experience and can include participating in farm activities, such as feeding the animals, visitors harvesting their own food, etc. Bullington said agritourism had taken a huge hit because the price of insuring farms for high levels of visitors is very expensive and deters many small farms from participating. “We’ve got a lot of agritourism destinations here in Holmes County seeks funds for new schools HOLMES COUNTY CHAMBER BREAKFAST Employees participate in Holmes County Relay for Life B2 A A A B2 dvertiser See SCHOOLS A2 10th annual Panhandle Patriotic Celebration coming up McFatter, Owens reunion set CHIPLEY — The McFatter, Owens cousin reunion will be Saturday, June 8, at the Bonnett Pond Fellowship Hall, located next to the Bonnett Pond Church.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A3 Wednesday, June 5, 2013 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com PONCE de LEON — Ponce de Leon High School’s gymnasi um was standing room only as friends, family, loved ones, fel low students and staff crowd ed in to celebrate Ponce de Leon High School’s graduat ing Class of 2013 on Monday. “True grit, that’s what this class has,” said Prin cipal Buddy Brown. “Some times you faltered, some times you tripped but when it counted you made it.” Brown said a lot of the stu dents’ successes came from concerned parents, grand parents and guardians. “To the class of 2013 I would like to take the time personally to congratulate each one of you on your per sonal accomplishments,” said Salutatorian Matthew David Hicks. “I’ve seen us all grow into the young men and women who will change the world in our own personal ways. I want to challenge you to set yourself high goals and apply yourself to achieving those goals because if you apply yourself you can ob tain any goal you set.” He encouraged his fel low classmates to live a life of “honesty and integrity, because living by these two principles will a reward that will benet your life greatly.” “Finally, ground your life in Jesus Christ,” said Hicks. “If you seek his will and guid ance in your life, you will experience a life full of joy, love, hope and peace even in times of trouble and turmoil. “Even though it has come time for us to part, leading some of us a long way from home,” Hicks said. “Let us not leave sad, instead let us leave knowing we shared some awesome memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. Now, Class of 2013, let us go forth and impact the world.” T o R eg ist er or f or mor e inf or ma tion, please c on tac t (850) 482-6500 or bnuc cio@bigb endahec .or g or T oll fr ee 1-87QUIT -NO W 6 I n t er est ed in quitting t obac c o?

One year ago, Memorial Day Week-End 2012, your writer was privileged and honored when Blaine Waide from the Folk Life Festival of the State of Florida, invited me to be a participant at the three-day annual event at the Folk Life Center on the legendary Suwanee River in White Springs, Florida. My assigned topics were Story Telling and Jokes amassed from a long experience of borrowing materials from others. Five presentations were made. It became a double honor when I learned that Dalton Carter, of Wausaus Possum Day fame, was scheduled on the same program. Added to joy of the long awaited historic appearance was being joined by long time friend, Wayne Martin of Blountstown. He has made numerous entries in the Folk Festivals of the past. As a contestant in old-time Fiddling, he has walked away as winner numerous times. For years, Wayne carried a business card in his billfold identifying himself as the Fiddling Fool. You can see and hear him each Friday night at Gilleys Family Opry south of Vernon, where he plays his noted ddle in the house band. The historic Florida Folk Festival last year was the 60th Anniversary of the annual event, which has kept many traditions alive while preserving the rich heritage of our state. Ironically, a celebration on the recent Memorial Day Week-End, gave the Prattler opportunity to participate in another historic 60th Anniversary Event. A year ago, Elder J. C. Stanaland, pastor of St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church in Panama City, reminded me that the congregation would be celebrating 60 years since its constitution on May 17, 1953. He knew that I, along with Voncile Buffaloe and my brother, Jim Wells, are the remaining three members who were among the ten church members who constituted that church so many years ago. The pastor asked that I present a summary of the history of St. Andrew Primitive Baptist, how it came to be constituted, who the ten founding members where, details of the building of the sanctuary and how the congregation has survived and progressed to its present state. The rst thing I told those present on May 25, was that I was without excuse if not prepared for the performance expected of me as I was put on notice almost a full year ago. Seven, of the original ten members, came by letter from Bethel Primitive Baptist Church in Washington County, In addition to the three listed above, Shelby Barber, Buell Farrell, Rebecca Farrell and Margie Farrell were the other four. Nellie Jackson, came by letter from Cool Springs Primitive Baptist Church near Dublin, Georgia. A husband and wife team, Mr. and Mrs. O. G. Tidwill, presented letters from an unknown location, making the total of ten members. Once formally constituted, the church called Elder H. E. Harris, who also held membership at Bethel, as its rst pastor. In the 60-year history, four other elders have served as pastor. They are Elder J. B. Pelham, Elder Lamon Farris, Elder Bobby Collins and the present pastor, Elder J. C. Stanaland. After meeting in the Millville Dads Club House and in a St. Andrew Union Hall for the few months prior to of cially becoming a church, the congregation secured a lot at 2100 Michigan Avenue and immediately embarked on the mammoth task of erecting a suitable meeting house. At the recent celebration, I described our newly acquired building plot as a deserted area of deep rooted palmettos, scrub oak trees, extremely sandy soil and an area infested with an abundance of mosquitoes and snakes. A host of willing nonmember volunteers, came forward to assist with the project. Such important functions of laying out the foundation, providing material and labor for building the roof and much of the plumbing and electrical work, were carried out by those quali ed to do the job and willing to perform it without charge. In my presentation, I mentioned that I recalled that we all were upbeat and optimistic about the project and actually enjoyed the workers and seeing the project move so rapidly. On the lighter side, mention was made of those sidewalk superintendents, or maybe more tactfully stated, interested bystanders who were mostly neighbors in the area who stood at a distance admiring our efforts and occasionally offering some suggestions. The only name recalled was a gentlemen who told us he was Gen. Tharp, who lived just across the street and that he came to Bay County from his native Washington County. Later, I got to know Mr. Tharp better during my employment in the Bay County Courthouse. He was one of those observers who enjoyed being at the opening of each term of Circuit Court. Some of E. W. Carswell early writings told of many upstanding citizens in rural counties who enjoyed a trip to the county courthouse on the important event of the opening day of court just to observe, with no other particular purpose for coming to the county seat. Before making my presentation at the St. Andrew Church on May 25, I made a point to look in the computer Marriage Records of Washington County for Mr. Tharp and found him listed as General Tharp, who married Laura Leola McDaniel on 3-31-1918. St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church has continued to maintain a sizeable membership as new members have consistently come into the fellowship down through the years. The church, which began by holding meetings on one Sunday, and Saturday night before, in each month, is now meeting every Sunday, with a mid-week service on Wednesday nights. For many years, the congregation has enjoyed a spacious dining room, a baptistry and additional bathrooms and of ce space built onto the sanctuary. The church has a web page: St andrewprimitivebaptist church.com, where the services mentioned can be found. Elder Ronald Lawrence, pastor of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church, Goodlettsville, Tenn., near Nashville, was the speaker for this special event. See you all next week. HAPPY CORNER By Monica Elam Guest Columnist (COLUMNISTS NOTE: Monica Elam, a good friend, asked me about doing a story on Miss Bernice Holmes who was her aide at Holmes County High School and had remained close after retirement. I suggested that Monica be my guest columnist this week, since she knew her so much better than I did. Monica graciously agreed. The following is Monicas work.) On Sunday, April 28, 2013, late in the evening hours at Bayside Manor Nursing Home in Pensacola, Bernice Alice Burgess Holmes stepped out of time into Eternity after battling pancreatic cancer. Bernice was born in Bonifay, graduated from Bay View in Bonifay and remained in the community her entire life except for a short time after she married. Bernice was such a special person to so many in the community. She accepted Christ at an early age and was a longtime, faithful member of Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church, where she worked untiringly until she became ill in December, 2012, and was moved from the house she shared with her brother Joe, to Pensacola. Many remember her for teaching them the books of the Bible, always being present whenever there was church or church related activities, placing palm branches in the aisle Easter Sunday, and sharing scriptures and prayers which many still recite. Because of her love and devotion to God and her community, Bernice did extensive work as a volunteer in a variety of programs. Dorothy Davis recalls the beginning of Bernices years riding every road in Holmes County when she worked with the Home Extension Of ce. One night a member of the sheriffs department in Free Port called, telling Bernice there was a man who needed help so she called Ms. Dorothy and off they went to get him. Ms. Dorothy remembers many an escapade she and Bernice took off on. Bernice was instrumental in integrating 4-H in Holmes County in the seventies. She encouraged her nephew Samuel, Rory Moore and two others to form a singing group and escorted them to Gainesville to compete. I believe the group was called Rory and the Chandeliers. Even though Bernice had no children she was a mother gure to many children who until to her death would run to her and hug her if they saw her. Others wrote and called her from New York and through out the country. Children felt her love, concern, and kindness. Sheryl Johnson who was very close to Bernice remarked how Bernice touched three generations while she lived across the street. Sheryl recalled sitting on Bernices steps waiting for her, then Sheryls daughters and granddaughters did the same thing. Bernices home was always open to anyone. Never a harsh word or negative thought was anyone able to say that they had heard her speak. Even after her illness, she would always say, Itll be alright. Throughout her nursing home stay she remained her positive, Christian, loving self and always had her sweet smile on her face. People there fell in love with her and that Sunday she passed, staff and patients came to the door to ask how she was. Bernice loved God and her church but she also loved her shing. Samuel said as far back as he can remember Bernice would get her rod and reel and the children then off to the river or creek they went. I can see her sitting on her bucket at Westville Carter private pond and leaning in and leaning back reeling all the while. Sometimes we just sat on our buckets or rode the dirt roads absorbing all about us. God, children, shing, outdoors and writing poetry were ve of her favorite things to do. She was a volunteer in other programs such as Prison Fellowship Training, Community Advisory Board for Vernon Place Eckerd Program for Girls, and District II Department of Corrections. I accompanied her to an event with the Eckerd Girls and the girls were so excited to see her, smiling, and hugging her. Her work with the special children at Hillcrest and Bonifay Middle School lled her heart with love as she extended herself in every way she could. In the early days of Hillcrest, Bernice practiced and accompanied many a Special Olympics trip, Disney trip, as well as many other places. With a desire for furthering her education, Bernice earned a Certi cation in Mental Retardation from Chipola Junior College in 1983 at the age of 60. She dedicated most of her life to being a teachers aide in Exceptional Education at Hillcrest and Bonifay Middle Schools until she retired several years ago. Because of her love and nurturing spirit, she earned the name Auntie. At her prayer service/ visitation on Friday, May 3, toward the end a man walked in. He signed the book, stood by the cof n then shook Samuels hand and said, I just had to come by and pay my respects to Miss Bernice. Bernice will be extremely missed, but will forever be remembered for her loving, caring, and giving nature. The last stanza of one of her poems reads: For God has a place prepared for us / And we can make it for He is helping us. So this not good-bye, but so long / For we will meet again and praise God All day long. PERRYS PRATTLE Perry Wells Perry Wells, Voncile Buffaloe, Jim Wells and Ashley Spalding, newest member.

In the short four years, with all of the crazy things I’ve done, all the trouble I’ve been in and all the mistakes that I’ve made has gotten me to the point, this point, to make me the man I am today.” He said all the expe riences in that time has molded them to be who they are. “That is what I’m proud of,” he said. “I am who I am; we are who we are and I’m happy with that. There isn’t anything that anyone can say to me, no titles they can place upon me or any cat egory they can place me in that can change who I actu ally am. I’m not dened by what people say I am; I de ne myself.” He said to dream of be ing successful, but don’t focus on what others dene as success. “Success is too often dened by what other peo ple think,” Forehand said. “Success isn’t a line that if you reach it and cross it then you’re successful, and if you are under it then you are unsuccessful. We should strive to nd what is truly important to us in life and when we’ve found out what that is to each of us as individuals, then we should do everything we can that, whether it’s to be an astro naut or to be the best father or mother we can be. If we reach our goals then we can be considered successful. In spite of what the status quo says, if you can look at yourself and be happy with who you are, where you are at and where you are going, then you are as successful as anyone else.” He closed with say ing that he hopes in 20 years they see each other again and they will all be successful. “I would like to thank God for allowing me to be a part of such a great group of people,” Forehand said. “We are the class of 2013. God Bless.” PHo O T o O S byBY CEci CI L ia IA SpSP E a A RS | Times-Advertiser Holmes County High School seniors listened as their classmates and school staff reminisced over the years’ memories and gave advice for the upcoming future.

O UTDOORS Wednesday, June 5, 2013 Page 6 www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.com Send your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com A Section If you are up to snuff on your electronics, it is possible to catch a sh of unknown legal length or quantity and turn on your smartphone and it will tell you all you need to know to avoid a ticket. This is true of the gray trigger sh, or it was until this month. On my phone it states the gray trigger sh has no season and no bag limit, but that will change June 10. The new regulation reads that from June 1 until July 31 you must not keep any gray trigger sh. In the next breath the rule states that after June 10 you must obey the new ruling and stop catching and keeping trigger sh. Sort of confusing to say the least. I had to call Tallahassee to nd out what all this meant. The word is this year you may catch gray trigger sh during the rst ten days of red snapper season, but on June 10 you must stop until July 31. Next year on June 1 you must stop catching gray trigger sh until July 31. That is the season set in stone for gray trigger sh. The new ruling states you can keep a total of two gray trigger sh per person if you are a recreational sherman. I asked several guides what they thought of this new regulation. Most said they had no problem with it for several reasons. First of all, they thought it would help the trigger sh population for future generations. Another reason they gave was that it was a hassle to sh for trigger sh while shing for red snapper. While shing for reef sh you must use a circle hook. A circle hook is great for snapper, grouper and other reef sh but a trigger sh goes about eating your bait differently. It chews the bait more than a snapper, that swallows the bait if it can get the whole thing in its mouth. More times than not a trigger will eat your bait and you will never be aware of it until you check it. Most people who sh exclusively for trigger sh will cut off the circle hook and put on a regular hook which by law is illegal. It’s possible to buy a circle of such small size a trigger sh will get caught, but if they have to change hooks they gure why not use one that will catch one every time; a small regular hook. As I see it the state has saved us a lot of time and effort by cutting out trigger shing while trying to snapper sh. Now you can just ignore all those trigger sh that come up under your boat and eat your bait and concentrate on trying to catch snapper. Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor Life Scott Lindsey captainlindsey@ knology.net By F RANK SARGEANT franksargeant@charter.net It’s been a long time coming, but the 2013 red snapper season will open in the Gulf of Mexico June 1 in both state and federal waters. The seasons begin in unison, but end in what some observers call chaos. Because Florida’s Game & Freshwater Fish Commission refused to go along with federal regulations — which they said were based on grossly underestimating snapper populations — Florida, like several other Gulf states, is being penalized by the National Marine Fisheries Service with a shortened season in federal waters, those more than 9 nautical miles from shore. Unfortunately for anglers, though there’s fair snapper shing inside the 9NM line, the great shing now available is mostly beyond it in deeper water. The season will be just 26 days long in federal waters, closing on June 27, at 12:01 a.m., local time. Florida state waters are open June 1 to July 14. Federal regulators say the rules are for the good of the sh — and ultimately of the shermen. But in fact, most experienced reef anglers say red snapper shing is now better than it has been in 40 years thanks to an extended period of tight harvest regulations, and also perhaps due in some measure to the success of sh excluder devices on shrimp nets, allowing millions of juvenile snapper to escape these days when in the past they would have wound up as by-catch, dead on the deck. So why don’t the feds want to pony up longer seasons and more generous bag limits? Because of a bizarre twist in the way they calculate the harvest — they measure it in pounds, and when their best estimate of a conservation-smart harvest is achieved, they call for closure. But snapper grow fast and live a long time, and consequently anglers are now catching tons of whoppers—which means they can catch a lot fewer before they reach those limits set by the feds, even though everybody agrees there are more red snapper and bigger red snapper than there have been in decades. It is much like the paradoxical Catch 22, and it’s causing a furious reaction among shermen from Florida to Texas. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council will review the 2013 red snapper population assessment during their June meeting in Pensacola. The council may request an emergency rule to increase the quota again based on the new scienti c information and request NOAA Fisheries to reopen the recreational season for red snapper later in the year. But NOAA seems in a combative mood when it comes to releasing “their” sh—most long-time observers are keeping their powder dry. Captain Bob Zales of Panama City Beach, past president of the National Association of Charterboat Operators and one of the leaders in seeking reasonable regulation in offshore waters, is among many pushing for pure state management of federal waters—and these days, it’s really starting to make sense, while it didn’t 30 years back. In the bad old days, only commercial shermen had lobbyists and power to control the rules, and all sheries suffered as a result where they had control. But these days, the checks and balances of recreational anglers and conservationists weigh in for keeping the maximum number of quality-sized sh in the water — and even the saltiest old commercial harvesters have nally come to realize that it just simply makes sense to guard the resource, so that they can not only make money shing today, but also tomorrow, next month and next year. It should be noted that thanks goes to not only state agencies but also federal biologists for much of the research on offshore species that has made this awakening happen. In any event, during the seasons — whether you sh inshore or off — there are some tactics that consistently produce results on red snapper. RED SNAPPER NEW DAY, NEW WAY Florida’s favorite snapper is again legal as of June 1 — but season will be short DAVID RAINER, ADCNR | Special to The News/Times-Advertiser Anglers all along the northern Gulf of Mexico caught snapper like these on almost every trip last season, and many are wondering why more liberal federal regulations have not been forthcoming. Below, headboats or party boats are found at every Panhandle port, and they provide an inexpensive way to get at excellent red snapper shing. FRANK SARGEANT | Special to The News AVOIDING MAL DE MER For those new to shing offshore, it’s a really good idea to load up on Dramamine, scopolamine patches or other seasick remedy starting the night before your trip—it won’t do any good to take the pill as the boat pushes off the dock. Even if seas are expected to be calm, “newbies” would do well to take seasick remedies; what seems a gentle swell to seasoned old salts may be enough to make your day very unpleasant if you’ve never been in blue water before. Another highly effective remedy is the electronic “watch” type seasick prevention device—it sends very light shocks into the nerve on the inside of your wrist, which blocks the impulse to get seasick. These are fairly pricey, at $89 to $130, but if you plan on going offshore regularly and are inclined to get sick, they’re well worth it—I’ve tried several of these and they’re highly effective, plus they don’t give you the sleepy feeling of scopolamine and Dramamine. Less expensive are pressure bracelets, with a knob to press on the nerve in your wrist—I’ve not tried them but the concept is fairly similar.

It is in the area of questions I feel the most inadequate. Maybe it is because I have not heard all the questions yet, but I think I have come close. I should know that any question that comes from my wife has a hidden agenda. Usually, she asks questions that have no answers. Lets go out for lunch today, she said rather chipperly. Experience should have taught me that when she is chipper, I am in trouble, because I am always the chippee. We have, she explained, some gift cards for a restaurant across town. Then she smiled, and that should have been a giveaway for me. When you mention lunch, and when you add the word free to it, I lose all sense of proportion and sanity, if I had any. Actually, to be honest about everything, it does not take much to scratch between my ears and get me purring. Then she threw in a perk that sold me completely on the idea. I love perks. Ill drive. When you think you have heard every trick in the book, somebody writes a new book. Usually, I forget some old trick that she has played, and here was an old one she was playing on me again. On the way to the restaurant, I had a little uneasy feeling, but as we sat down and began ordering, all suspicion faded into thin air. It was a scrumptious lunch, and we both enjoyed being together, carefree and enjoying the ambiance. When the check came I casually said, You know, we ought to do this more often. She smiled and nodded her head. When we got into the car, she said somewhat nonchalantly, Oh, by the way, since were here I need to run into the mall and pick up an item. When I heard those words, I froze. Not the mall! I hate shopping, especially at the mall. In my mind, the word mall is the acronym for May All Lose their Loot. Since I do not have that much loot to lose, I do not like going into a place designed to relieve me of my loot. Every time I walk down the center of the mall, I feel eyes glaring at me and piercing to the core of my wallet trying to suck out all my money. And, by the way, they take credit cards. Boy, do they take credit cards. When we parked at the mall parking lot, I indicated I would stay in the car and wait for her. Oh, no, she exclaimed, come on in, you need the exercise. Im just going to run in and run out. Here is where the language differential between husbands and wives shows itself. Unless you are familiar with English with a feminine twist, you are going to get trapped every time. For example, when a husband says the word run, he is referring to speed. When his wife uses the same word it means she is going to run into every store in sight within the mall with one agenda, and that is to buy, for which I can say bye-bye to my money. Why dont local universities offer a degree in wifeology? They have degrees in everything else, why not here where it would be most useful. By the time I reach the equivalent of a doctorate in wifeology, I would be too old to do any good with it. Those who insist there is no difference between a man and a woman have never been married to a woman. Husbands get into trouble assuming their wife is just like them and thinks just like them. Exiting the shopping mall, my wife looked at me, smiled and said, Now, wasnt that good exercise. I nodded as I walked to the car with both my hands lled with recently purchased items from the shopping mall. Now I know my part of the exercise was hauling her purchases to the car. Halfway to the car I had to stop and catch my breath and wondered if I would really make it to the car. Come on, were done shopping for the day. Lets get to the car. While driving home, I was afraid my wife was going to wear out her smile. This has been a great day. Well have to do this more often. Then she began humming a song, Weve only just begun. I think this is her theme song. In fact, I am afraid it is. About halfway home, I had a wonderful thought. It was a good day. I can always earn more money, but I can never get another wife quite as nice as the one I have. Then I began humming, Weve only just begun. A verse of Scripture began playing in my mind as we continued our journey home. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3 KJV). Driving into the driveway, I realized this was not our nal destination. God has a wonderful place prepared for those who have put their trust and faith in Him. No tricks about it. The Rev. James L.

David was a man of many talents and a delight to know. Besides playing football and baseball, he was what Prof. Sam Jones called a “ne bass player,” playing the Sousaphone in the marching and concert band in college at Perkinston.

He hunted and shed. He loved all things manly, and he was a role model. He was always busy, but never too busy too listen. With David, what you saw was what you got. He did not preach Christianity. He just lived his life, and the evidence of his faith was there before you. What a guy. He was preceded in death by his parents, Leonard Adam Blackwell, Sr. and Myrtis Pearl Durr Blackwell.

Wednesday, June 5, 2013 B6 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Extra Willie Helen (Commander) Galloway of Sweet Gum Head, lost her battle with idiopathic pulmonary brosis on Saturday, May 25, 2013. After an extended illness, Helen passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by husband and family. She was 85 years of age. Born May 14, 1928, Helen spent her youth roaming the dirt roads of the Sweet Gum Head community she loved so much. At the young age of thirteen, she met C.C. (Bill) Galloway, also of Sweet Gum Head. Thus began a love story for the ages. The childhood sweethearts married in 1948, and, except for a short period of time, were life-long residents of Holmes County. She graduated from Florida State University in the spring of 1949. Later that year, she and Bill welcomed their rst son. They would go on to raise ve children and enjoy the full measure of love brought by seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Following college, Helen built a career, spanning 30 years, as an educator for the Holmes County School System. She served as a teacher at Prosperity Elementary, Westville, Bethlehem and Ponce de Leon Schools. She is primarily remembered by her students as the Home Economics teacher, girls basketball coach and Future Homemakers of America (now FCCLA) sponsor. As an educator and FHA sponsor, she engaged students not only in the classroom but at local, state, and national events and competitions. She helped sponsor many eld trips, including ones to Washington D.C. and the King Tut exhibition in New Orleans. She was always a caring and encouraging inuence on her students. She truly loved teaching and touched many lives during her career. Helen was not just a teacher, but a pioneer in her eld. She was the rst home economics teacher in the state of Florida to bring hands-on application to the classroom. Establishing kitchen labs, she enabled her students to experience the joy of cooking rsthand rather than through demonstration only. She assisted hundreds of young men and women in learning to reach new horizons through community involvement, public speaking, parliamentary procedure and all manner of creative and leadership oriented projects and demonstrations. At one time, Helens FHA chapter was the most highly rated in the state of Florida with numerous students achieving the highly coveted State Ofcer position. She was always willing to go the extra mile for her students an attitude that yielded her the State Distinguished Service Award in Vocational Education in 1976. Helen retired in 1982. In retirement, she was a member of Phi Delta Kappa and the Retired Teachers Association. While she worked lovingly in her ower gardens, enjoyed any shopping trip that came her way, and quilted, the real passion of her twilight years was researching local history of all things related to Holmes County and genealogy. In typical fashion, Helen didnt just dabble on Ancestry. com. With the same grit, creativity and resolve she had applied in the classroom, she started researching the lineage of the Galloway and Commander families. Her bedroom was converted to an extensive archive. The den became her ofce, with binders, printers, laptops and scanners all around. Closets were lled with research, all in support of The Book which traced the Galloway lineage from 1730 to present day. She saw her precious book into nal draft, and in true Helen fashion secured the commitments of various loved ones to insure her book would be nished posthumously. She was a life-long member of the Sweet Gum Head Church of Christ, and now the Lord has called her home. The family would like to thank all those who visited Helen in her nal years. Those visits kept her connected to the community, students and friends that she loved so dearly. The family also thanks those who have expressed their love and sympathy since her death. In addition, the family thanks her caregivers, including Vanessa Hamilton and all the members of Covenant Hospice Western Division, especially Lana Blackburn, Jack Howell, Tracy Joiner, Jimmy King, Toby Murray, Cindy Peacock the late Jackie Register, Adrianna Taylor, Marianne Whiteld, and Tommy Wood all of whom rendered dignied caring, devoted compassion and love to Helen in her nal years.

For the past 10 years, we have come together as a community and planned and carried out one of the nest sponsored patriotic celebrations in the tri-states area, said Robin Burns, secretary of First Baptist Church of Bonifay. At this event, the Holmes Ministerial Association comes together with area businesses and individuals who pool economic resources to make this no-cost event to the citizens of Bonifay and Holmes County a reality. Weve had various musical groups perform as well as show a patriotic video that highlights the years since the birth of our nation. A spectacular reworks display concludes the event. Burns said this years celebration will include free food, fellowship, entertainment and reworks. It is going to make that Sunday afternoon on the 30th of June a very special day in the life of our citizens as we celebrate the wonderful gift of freedom. We will hold the celebration at the recreation center. All the churches will be set up in the large ball eld, and parking will take place in the adjacent elds.District hopes to build new elementary, middle schoolBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Superintendent of Holmes County Schools Eddie Dixon announced the district is in the process of nding funds to build new a new Bonifay Elementary School and a new Bonifay Middle School during the Holmes County Chamber of Commerces monthly Chamber Breakfast on Thursday. Weve done all we can for those two schools, and now they are beyond what we could possibly do for them, Dixon said. My vision is to have kindergarten through fth grade together again and that both schools will be in facilities that can withstand a hurricane ve. Right now we are ghting hard for funding. Chamber coordinator Julia Bullington also announced a few bills passed recently in the Florida Legislature that affect Holmes County. There are days set aside where the sales taxes are exempt on backto-school items, Bullington said. This year it was passed that the day will be held on Aug. 2 through Aug. 4 and now includes computers up to $750. This includes tablets, laptops and electronic readers. She also said an insurance exemption was passed for agritourism. Agritourism is attracting visitors to the farm experience and can include participating in farm activities, such as feeding the animals, visitors harvesting their own food, etc. Bullington said agritourism had taken a huge hit because the price of insuring farms for high levels of visitors is very expensive and deters many small farms from participating.

One year ago, Memorial Day Week-End 2012, your writer was privileged and honored when Blaine Waide from the Folk Life Festival of the State of Florida, invited me to be a participant at the three-day annual event at the Folk Life Center on the legendary Suwanee River in White Springs, Florida. My assigned topics were Story Telling and Jokes amassed from a long experience of borrowing materials from others. Five presentations were made. It became a double honor when I learned that Dalton Carter, of Wausaus Possum Day fame, was scheduled on the same program. Added to joy of the long awaited historic appearance was being joined by long time friend, Wayne Martin of Blountstown. He has made numerous entries in the Folk Festivals of the past. As a contestant in old-time Fiddling, he has walked away as winner numerous times. For years, Wayne carried a business card in his billfold identifying himself as the Fiddling Fool. You can see and hear him each Friday night at Gilleys Family Opry south of Vernon, where he plays his noted ddle in the house band. The historic Florida Folk Festival last year was the 60th Anniversary of the annual event, which has kept many traditions alive while preserving the rich heritage of our state. Ironically, a celebration on the recent Memorial Day Week-End, gave the Prattler opportunity to participate in another historic 60th Anniversary Event. A year ago, Elder J. C. Stanaland, pastor of St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church in Panama City, reminded me that the congregation would be celebrating 60 years since its constitution on May 17, 1953. He knew that I, along with Voncile Buffaloe and my brother, Jim Wells, are the remaining three members who were among the ten church members who constituted that church so many years ago. The pastor asked that I present a summary of the history of St. Andrew Primitive Baptist, how it came to be constituted, who the ten founding members where, details of the building of the sanctuary and how the congregation has survived and progressed to its present state. The rst thing I told those present on May 25, was that I was without excuse if not prepared for the performance expected of me as I was put on notice almost a full year ago. Seven, of the original ten members, came by letter from Bethel Primitive Baptist Church in Washington County, In addition to the three listed above, Shelby Barber, Buell Farrell, Rebecca Farrell and Margie Farrell were the other four. Nellie Jackson, came by letter from Cool Springs Primitive Baptist Church near Dublin, Georgia. A husband and wife team, Mr. and Mrs. O. G. Tidwill, presented letters from an unknown location, making the total of ten members. Once formally constituted, the church called Elder H. E. Harris, who also held membership at Bethel, as its rst pastor. In the 60-year history, four other elders have served as pastor. They are Elder J. B. Pelham, Elder Lamon Farris, Elder Bobby Collins and the present pastor, Elder J. C. Stanaland. After meeting in the Millville Dads Club House and in a St. Andrew Union Hall for the few months prior to of cially becoming a church, the congregation secured a lot at 2100 Michigan Avenue and immediately embarked on the mammoth task of erecting a suitable meeting house. At the recent celebration, I described our newly acquired building plot as a deserted area of deep rooted palmettos, scrub oak trees, extremely sandy soil and an area infested with an abundance of mosquitoes and snakes. A host of willing nonmember volunteers, came forward to assist with the project. Such important functions of laying out the foundation, providing material and labor for building the roof and much of the plumbing and electrical work, were carried out by those quali ed to do the job and willing to perform it without charge. In my presentation, I mentioned that I recalled that we all were upbeat and optimistic about the project and actually enjoyed the workers and seeing the project move so rapidly. On the lighter side, mention was made of those sidewalk superintendents, or maybe more tactfully stated, interested bystanders who were mostly neighbors in the area who stood at a distance admiring our efforts and occasionally offering some suggestions. The only name recalled was a gentlemen who told us he was Gen. Tharp, who lived just across the street and that he came to Bay County from his native Washington County. Later, I got to know Mr. Tharp better during my employment in the Bay County Courthouse. He was one of those observers who enjoyed being at the opening of each term of Circuit Court. Some of E. W. Carswell early writings told of many upstanding citizens in rural counties who enjoyed a trip to the county courthouse on the important event of the opening day of court just to observe, with no other particular purpose for coming to the county seat. Before making my presentation at the St. Andrew Church on May 25, I made a point to look in the computer Marriage Records of Washington County for Mr. Tharp and found him listed as General Tharp, who married Laura Leola McDaniel on 3-31-1918. St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church has continued to maintain a sizeable membership as new members have consistently come into the fellowship down through the years. The church, which began by holding meetings on one Sunday, and Saturday night before, in each month, is now meeting every Sunday, with a mid-week service on Wednesday nights. For many years, the congregation has enjoyed a spacious dining room, a baptistry and additional bathrooms and of ce space built onto the sanctuary. The church has a web page: St andrewprimitivebaptist church.com, where the services mentioned can be found. Elder Ronald Lawrence, pastor of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church, Goodlettsville, Tenn., near Nashville, was the speaker for this special event. See you all next week.HAPPY CORNERBy Monica Elam Guest Columnist (COLUMNISTS NOTE: Monica Elam, a good friend, asked me about doing a story on Miss Bernice Holmes who was her aide at Holmes County High School and had remained close after retirement. I suggested that Monica be my guest columnist this week, since she knew her so much better than I did. Monica graciously agreed. The following is Monicas work.) On Sunday, April 28, 2013, late in the evening hours at Bayside Manor Nursing Home in Pensacola, Bernice Alice Burgess Holmes stepped out of time into Eternity after battling pancreatic cancer. Bernice was born in Bonifay, graduated from Bay View in Bonifay and remained in the community her entire life except for a short time after she married. Bernice was such a special person to so many in the community. She accepted Christ at an early age and was a longtime, faithful member of Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church, where she worked untiringly until she became ill in December, 2012, and was moved from the house she shared with her brother Joe, to Pensacola. Many remember her for teaching them the books of the Bible, always being present whenever there was church or church related activities, placing palm branches in the aisle Easter Sunday, and sharing scriptures and prayers which many still recite. Because of her love and devotion to God and her community, Bernice did extensive work as a volunteer in a variety of programs. Dorothy Davis recalls the beginning of Bernices years riding every road in Holmes County when she worked with the Home Extension Of ce. One night a member of the sheriffs department in Free Port called, telling Bernice there was a man who needed help so she called Ms. Dorothy and off they went to get him. Ms. Dorothy remembers many an escapade she and Bernice took off on. Bernice was instrumental in integrating 4-H in Holmes County in the seventies. She encouraged her nephew Samuel, Rory Moore and two others to form a singing group and escorted them to Gainesville to compete. I believe the group was called Rory and the Chandeliers. Even though Bernice had no children she was a mother gure to many children who until to her death would run to her and hug her if they saw her. Others wrote and called her from New York and through out the country. Children felt her love, concern, and kindness. Sheryl Johnson who was very close to Bernice remarked how Bernice touched three generations while she lived across the street. Sheryl recalled sitting on Bernices steps waiting for her, then Sheryls daughters and granddaughters did the same thing. Bernices home was always open to anyone. Never a harsh word or negative thought was anyone able to say that they had heard her speak. Even after her illness, she would always say, Itll be alright. Throughout her nursing home stay she remained her positive, Christian, loving self and always had her sweet smile on her face. People there fell in love with her and that Sunday she passed, staff and patients came to the door to ask how she was. Bernice loved God and her church but she also loved her shing. Samuel said as far back as he can remember Bernice would get her rod and reel and the children then off to the river or creek they went. I can see her sitting on her bucket at Westville Carter private pond and leaning in and leaning back reeling all the while. Sometimes we just sat on our buckets or rode the dirt roads absorbing all about us. God, children, shing, outdoors and writing poetry were ve of her favorite things to do. She was a volunteer in other programs such as Prison Fellowship Training, Community Advisory Board for Vernon Place Eckerd Program for Girls, and District II Department of Corrections. I accompanied her to an event with the Eckerd Girls and the girls were so excited to see her, smiling, and hugging her. Her work with the special children at Hillcrest and Bonifay Middle School lled her heart with love as she extended herself in every way she could. In the early days of Hillcrest, Bernice practiced and accompanied many a Special Olympics trip, Disney trip, as well as many other places. With a desire for furthering her education, Bernice earned a Certi cation in Mental Retardation from Chipola Junior College in 1983 at the age of 60. She dedicated most of her life to being a teachers aide in Exceptional Education at Hillcrest and Bonifay Middle Schools until she retired several years ago. Because of her love and nurturing spirit, she earned the name Auntie. At her prayer service/ visitation on Friday, May 3, toward the end a man walked in. He signed the book, stood by the cof n then shook Samuels hand and said, I just had to come by and pay my respects to Miss Bernice. Bernice will be extremely missed, but will forever be remembered for her loving, caring, and giving nature. The last stanza of one of her poems reads: For God has a place prepared for us / And we can make it for He is helping us. So this not good-bye, but so long / For we will meet again and praise God All day long.PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells Perry Wells, Voncile Buffaloe, Jim Wells and Ashley Spalding, newest member.Founding member of St. Andrew Primitive Baptist This not a good-bye, but so long, we will meet againPHOTO SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Monica Elam, left, poses with friend Bernice Holmes.CONTACTUSPUBLISHER Nicole Bare eld: nbare eld@chipleypaper.com NEWS, SPORTS OR OPINION news@bonifaynow.com CLASSIFIED & CIRCULATION Cathrine Lamb: clamb@chipleypaper.com 1-800-345-8688 ADVERTISING Stephanie Smith: ssmith@chipleypaper.com 850-638-0212 The views expressed here are not necessarily those of this paper or Halifax Media Group.

Everyone who is graduating from here has something to be proud of and thats making it this far, Salutatorian Coleton Forehand said. Im thankful for the time I spent here. In the short four years, with all of the crazy things Ive done, all the trouble Ive been in and all the mistakes that Ive made has gotten me to the point, this point, to make me the man I am today. He said all the experiences in that time has molded them to be who they are. That is what Im proud of, he said. I am who I am; we are who we are and Im happy with that. There isnt anything that anyone can say to me, no titles they can place upon me or any category they can place me in that can change who I actually am. Im not dened by what people say I am; I dene myself. He said to dream of being successful, but dont focus on what others dene as success. Success is too often dened by what other people think, Forehand said. Success isnt a line that if you reach it and cross it then youre successful, and if you are under it then you are unsuccessful. We should strive to nd what is truly important to us in life and when weve found out what that is to each of us as individuals, then we should do everything we can that, whether its to be an astronaut or to be the best father or mother we can be. If we reach our goals then we can be considered successful. In spite of what the status quo says, if you can look at yourself and be happy with who you are, where you are at and where you are going, then you are as successful as anyone else. He closed with saying that he hopes in 20 years they see each other again and they will all be successful. I would like to thank God for allowing me to be a part of such a great group of people, Forehand said. We are the class of 2013.

OUTDOORS Wednesday, June 5, 2013 Page 6www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comSend your Outdoors news to news@chipleypaper.com ASection If you are up to snuff on your electronics, it is possible to catch a sh of unknown legal length or quantity and turn on your smartphone and it will tell you all you need to know to avoid a ticket. This is true of the gray trigger sh, or it was until this month. On my phone it states the gray trigger sh has no season and no bag limit, but that will change June 10. The new regulation reads that from June 1 until July 31 you must not keep any gray trigger sh. In the next breath the rule states that after June 10 you must obey the new ruling and stop catching and keeping trigger sh. Sort of confusing to say the least. I had to call Tallahassee to nd out what all this meant. The word is this year you may catch gray trigger sh during the rst ten days of red snapper season, but on June 10 you must stop until July 31. Next year on June 1 you must stop catching gray trigger sh until July 31. That is the season set in stone for gray trigger sh. The new ruling states you can keep a total of two gray trigger sh per person if you are a recreational sherman. I asked several guides what they thought of this new regulation. Most said they had no problem with it for several reasons. First of all, they thought it would help the trigger sh population for future generations. Another reason they gave was that it was a hassle to sh for trigger sh while shing for red snapper. While shing for reef sh you must use a circle hook. A circle hook is great for snapper, grouper and other reef sh but a trigger sh goes about eating your bait differently. It chews the bait more than a snapper, that swallows the bait if it can get the whole thing in its mouth. More times than not a trigger will eat your bait and you will never be aware of it until you check it. Most people who sh exclusively for trigger sh will cut off the circle hook and put on a regular hook which by law is illegal. Its possible to buy a circle of such small size a trigger sh will get caught, but if they have to change hooks they gure why not use one that will catch one every time; a small regular hook. As I see it the state has saved us a lot of time and effort by cutting out trigger shing while trying to snapper sh. Now you can just ignore all those trigger sh that come up under your boat and eat your bait and concentrate on trying to catch snapper.Hooked on Outdoors Outdoor LifeScott Lindseycaptainlindsey@ knology.net By FRANK SARGEANTfranksargeant@charter.net Its been a long time coming, but the 2013 red snapper season will open in the Gulf of Mexico June 1 in both state and federal waters. The seasons begin in unison, but end in what some observers call chaos. Because Floridas Game & Freshwater Fish Commission refused to go along with federal regulations which they said were based on grossly underestimating snapper populations Florida, like several other Gulf states, is being penalized by the National Marine Fisheries Service with a shortened season in federal waters, those more than 9 nautical miles from shore. Unfortunately for anglers, though theres fair snapper shing inside the 9NM line, the great shing now available is mostly beyond it in deeper water. The season will be just 26 days long in federal waters, closing on June 27, at 12:01 a.m., local time. Florida state waters are open June 1 to July 14. Federal regulators say the rules are for the good of the sh and ultimately of the shermen. But in fact, most experienced reef anglers say red snapper shing is now better than it has been in 40 years thanks to an extended period of tight harvest regulations, and also perhaps due in some measure to the success of sh excluder devices on shrimp nets, allowing millions of juvenile snapper to escape these days when in the past they would have wound up as by-catch, dead on the deck. So why dont the feds want to pony up longer seasons and more generous bag limits? Because of a bizarre twist in the way they calculate the harvest they measure it in pounds, and when their best estimate of a conservation-smart harvest is achieved, they call for closure. But snapper grow fast and live a long time, and consequently anglers are now catching tons of whopperswhich means they can catch a lot fewer before they reach those limits set by the feds, even though everybody agrees there are more red snapper and bigger red snapper than there have been in decades. It is much like the paradoxical Catch 22, and its causing a furious reaction among shermen from Florida to Texas. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council will review the 2013 red snapper population assessment during their June meeting in Pensacola. The council may request an emergency rule to increase the quota again based on the new scienti c information and request NOAA Fisheries to reopen the recreational season for red snapper later in the year. But NOAA seems in a combative mood when it comes to releasing their shmost long-time observers are keeping their powder dry. Captain Bob Zales of Panama City Beach, past president of the National Association of Charterboat Operators and one of the leaders in seeking reasonable regulation in offshore waters, is among many pushing for pure state management of federal watersand these days, its really starting to make sense, while it didnt 30 years back. In the bad old days, only commercial shermen had lobbyists and power to control the rules, and all sheries suffered as a result where they had control. But these days, the checks and balances of recreational anglers and conservationists weigh in for keeping the maximum number of quality-sized sh in the water and even the saltiest old commercial harvesters have nally come to realize that it just simply makes sense to guard the resource, so that they can not only make money shing today, but also tomorrow, next month and next year. It should be noted that thanks goes to not only state agencies but also federal biologists for much of the research on offshore species that has made this awakening happen. In any event, during the seasons whether you sh inshore or off there are some tactics that consistently produce results on red snapper.RED SNAPPERNEW DAY, NEW WAYFloridas favorite snapper is again legal as of June 1 but season will be shortDAVID RAINER, ADCNR | Special to The News/Times-AdvertiserAnglers all along the northern Gulf of Mexico caught snapper like these on almost every trip last season, and many are wondering why more liberal federal regulations have not been forthcoming. Below, headboats or party boats are found at every Panhandle port, and they provide an inexpensive way to get at excellent red snapper shing.FRANK SARGEANT | Special to The News AVOIDING MAL DE MERFor those new to shing offshore, its a really good idea to load up on Dramamine, scopolamine patches or other seasick remedy starting the night before your tripit wont do any good to take the pill as the boat pushes off the dock. Even if seas are expected to be calm, newbies would do well to take seasick remedies; what seems a gentle swell to seasoned old salts may be enough to make your day very unpleasant if youve never been in blue water before. Another highly effective remedy is the electronic watch type seasick prevention deviceit sends very light shocks into the nerve on the inside of your wrist, which blocks the impulse to get seasick. These are fairly pricey, at $89 to $130, but if you plan on going offshore regularly and are inclined to get sick, theyre well worth itIve tried several of these and theyre highly effective, plus they dont give you the sleepy feeling of scopolamine and Dramamine. Less expensive are pressure bracelets, with a knob to press on the nerve in your wristIve not tried them but the concept is fairly similar.

It is in the area of questions I feel the most inadequate. Maybe it is because I have not heard all the questions yet, but I think I have come close. I should know that any question that comes from my wife has a hidden agenda. Usually, she asks questions that have no answers. Lets go out for lunch today, she said rather chipperly. Experience should have taught me that when she is chipper, I am in trouble, because I am always the chippee. We have, she explained, some gift cards for a restaurant across town. Then she smiled, and that should have been a giveaway for me. When you mention lunch, and when you add the word free to it, I lose all sense of proportion and sanity, if I had any. Actually, to be honest about everything, it does not take much to scratch between my ears and get me purring. Then she threw in a perk that sold me completely on the idea. I love perks. Ill drive. When you think you have heard every trick in the book, somebody writes a new book. Usually, I forget some old trick that she has played, and here was an old one she was playing on me again. On the way to the restaurant, I had a little uneasy feeling, but as we sat down and began ordering, all suspicion faded into thin air. It was a scrumptious lunch, and we both enjoyed being together, carefree and enjoying the ambiance. When the check came I casually said, You know, we ought to do this more often. She smiled and nodded her head. When we got into the car, she said somewhat nonchalantly, Oh, by the way, since were here I need to run into the mall and pick up an item. When I heard those words, I froze. Not the mall! I hate shopping, especially at the mall. In my mind, the word mall is the acronym for May All Lose their Loot. Since I do not have that much loot to lose, I do not like going into a place designed to relieve me of my loot. Every time I walk down the center of the mall, I feel eyes glaring at me and piercing to the core of my wallet trying to suck out all my money. And, by the way, they take credit cards. Boy, do they take credit cards. When we parked at the mall parking lot, I indicated I would stay in the car and wait for her. Oh, no, she exclaimed, come on in, you need the exercise. Im just going to run in and run out. Here is where the language differential between husbands and wives shows itself. Unless you are familiar with English with a feminine twist, you are going to get trapped every time. For example, when a husband says the word run, he is referring to speed. When his wife uses the same word it means she is going to run into every store in sight within the mall with one agenda, and that is to buy, for which I can say bye-bye to my money. Why dont local universities offer a degree in wifeology? They have degrees in everything else, why not here where it would be most useful. By the time I reach the equivalent of a doctorate in wifeology, I would be too old to do any good with it. Those who insist there is no difference between a man and a woman have never been married to a woman. Husbands get into trouble assuming their wife is just like them and thinks just like them. Exiting the shopping mall, my wife looked at me, smiled and said, Now, wasnt that good exercise. I nodded as I walked to the car with both my hands lled with recently purchased items from the shopping mall. Now I know my part of the exercise was hauling her purchases to the car. Halfway to the car I had to stop and catch my breath and wondered if I would really make it to the car. Come on, were done shopping for the day. Lets get to the car. While driving home, I was afraid my wife was going to wear out her smile. This has been a great day. Well have to do this more often. Then she began humming a song, Weve only just begun. I think this is her theme song. In fact, I am afraid it is. About halfway home, I had a wonderful thought. It was a good day. I can always earn more money, but I can never get another wife quite as nice as the one I have. Then I began humming, Weve only just begun. A verse of Scripture began playing in my mind as we continued our journey home. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3 KJV). Driving into the driveway, I realized this was not our nal destination. God has a wonderful place prepared for those who have put their trust and faith in Him. No tricks about it. The Rev. James L.

Born May 14, 1948, David loved the South and lived in his native Mississippi, in north Florida, and in south Alabama all his life.

Besides playing football and baseball, he was what Prof. Sam Jones called a ne bass player, playing the Sousaphone in the marching and concert band in college at Perkinston.

He hunted and shed. He loved all things manly, and he was a role model. He was always busy, but never too busy too listen. With David, what you saw was what you got. He did not preach Christianity. He just lived his life, and the evidence of his faith was there before you. What a guy. He was preceded in death by his parents, Leonard Adam Blackwell, Sr. and Myrtis Pearl Durr Blackwell.

Wednesday, June 5, 2013 B6 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News ExtraWillie Helen (Commander) Galloway of Sweet Gum Head, lost her battle with idiopathic pulmonary brosis on Saturday, May 25, 2013. After an extended illness, Helen passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by husband and family. She was 85 years of age. Born May 14, 1928, Helen spent her youth roaming the dirt roads of the Sweet Gum Head community she loved so much. At the young age of thirteen, she met C.C. (Bill) Galloway, also of Sweet Gum Head. Thus began a love story for the ages. The childhood sweethearts married in 1948, and, except for a short period of time, were life-long residents of Holmes County. She graduated from Florida State University in the spring of 1949. Later that year, she and Bill welcomed their rst son. They would go on to raise ve children and enjoy the full measure of love brought by seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Following college, Helen built a career, spanning 30 years, as an educator for the Holmes County School System. She served as a teacher at Prosperity Elementary, Westville, Bethlehem and Ponce de Leon Schools. She is primarily remembered by her students as the Home Economics teacher, girls basketball coach and Future Homemakers of America (now FCCLA) sponsor. As an educator and FHA sponsor, she engaged students not only in the classroom but at local, state, and national events and competitions. She helped sponsor many eld trips, including ones to Washington D.C. and the King Tut exhibition in New Orleans. She was always a caring and encouraging inuence on her students. She truly loved teaching and touched many lives during her career. Helen was not just a teacher, but a pioneer in her eld. She was the rst home economics teacher in the state of Florida to bring hands-on application to the classroom. Establishing kitchen labs, she enabled her students to experience the joy of cooking rsthand rather than through demonstration only. She assisted hundreds of young men and women in learning to reach new horizons through community involvement, public speaking, parliamentary procedure and all manner of creative and leadership oriented projects and demonstrations. At one time, Helens FHA chapter was the most highly rated in the state of Florida with numerous students achieving the highly coveted State Ofcer position. She was always willing to go the extra mile for her students an attitude that yielded her the State Distinguished Service Award in Vocational Education in 1976. Helen retired in 1982. In retirement, she was a member of Phi Delta Kappa and the Retired Teachers Association. While she worked lovingly in her ower gardens, enjoyed any shopping trip that came her way, and quilted, the real passion of her twilight years was researching local history of all things related to Holmes County and genealogy. In typical fashion, Helen didnt just dabble on Ancestry. com. With the same grit, creativity and resolve she had applied in the classroom, she started researching the lineage of the Galloway and Commander families. Her bedroom was converted to an extensive archive. The den became her ofce, with binders, printers, laptops and scanners all around. Closets were lled with research, all in support of The Book which traced the Galloway lineage from 1730 to present day. She saw her precious book into nal draft, and in true Helen fashion secured the commitments of various loved ones to insure her book would be nished posthumously. She was a life-long member of the Sweet Gum Head Church of Christ, and now the Lord has called her home. The family would like to thank all those who visited Helen in her nal years. Those visits kept her connected to the community, students and friends that she loved so dearly. The family also thanks those who have expressed their love and sympathy since her death. In addition, the family thanks her caregivers, including Vanessa Hamilton and all the members of Covenant Hospice Western Division, especially Lana Blackburn, Jack Howell, Tracy Joiner, Jimmy King, Toby Murray, Cindy Peacock the late Jackie Register, Adrianna Taylor, Marianne Whiteld, and Tommy Wood all of whom rendered dignied caring, devoted compassion and love to Helen in her nal years. Helen will be missed as a wife, mother, granny, aunt, friend and Christian lady. Helen was preceded in death by her parents, the late Emogene and Willie Louise (Harrell) Commander of Sweet Gum Head. She is survived by her husband, Cyrial Cotton (Bill) Galloway of Sweet Gum Head, and their ve children and spouses, Gary Leon Galloway and wife Sherron Byrd Galloway of Sweet Gum Head, Dr. Jerry Brian Galloway and his wife Joy Sheryl (Philips) Galloway of Geneva, Ala., Hilton Cyrial Galloway and his wife Martha Hammond Galloway of Enterprise, Ala., Mary Helen Galloway Platt and her husband Dr. Richard Gordon Richie Platt of Pensacola, and Melissa Lynn Lisa Middleton and husband Charles Albert Chuck Middleton of Dallas, Texas.
