For example if they invested $2,000 they are now allowed to carry forward $500 to the next year, which before it was more of a use it or lose it kind of plan, said Hawkins. The board approved of the states mandated Wellness Policy. Every ve years we have to promote healthy eating in our lunchrooms and healthy lifestyle choices like regular exercise, which is required by, said Superintendent Eddie Dixon. School board member Debbie Kolmetz said she wanted to re-emphasize the importance of not selling soda and candy past its allotted time, which is not past an hour after lunchtime.

On the stage there was set an empty table with a glass, a rose, a candle and an empty chair. This table is our way of symbolizing those who are lost at war, said Retired Sergeant Major of the U.S. Army Terry Mears. Some humbly call them POWs, we call them brothers. They are unable to eat with us this evening, so remember them. He explained that the table is set for one, symbolizing the one who is unable to attend, the table cloth is white, symbolizing the purity of their motives when answering the call to duty, the rose is placed on the table to remind us of the lives of these men and their loved ones and friends who keep the faith, while seeking answers, around the vase a red ribbon that symbolizes the red ribbon worn on the lapels of thousands. The candle symbolizes the light and Esto considers utility charge for road improvementsFrom Staff Reports ESTO The Town of Esto is proposing a 1-percent charge added to residents utility bills for road improvements in the Town of Esto, according to the minutes of the Nov. 5 meeting of the Esto Town Council.

LocalA2 | Washington County News Wednesday, November 13, 2013determination of all those who wont give up the ght, a slice of lemon on the plate reminds us of the bitter fate of those captured and missing in a foreign land, the salt on the plate symbolizes the tears of our missing and their families who long for answers after decades of uncertainty, a Bible placed on the table represents the strength gained through faith in our country, founded as one nation under God, to sustain those lost from our midst, and the glass standing upside down symbolizes our inability to share this evenings toast with our loved one. Remember they are lost but not forgotten, said Mears. Until the day that they come home, remember. Welcoming everyone to the dinner was Lt. John Tate in place of Holmes County Sheriff Tim Brown. We appreciate this opportunity to express our gratitude for the service youve provided to this country and dedication that is deserving of our gratitude, said Tate. Tate introduced the evenings speaker, Mark McDufe. It is my honor to introduce our guest speaker tonight, one of our nations heroes, native of Geneva, Ala., proudly serving in 1997 as a member of the Air Force. On March the second of 2007 his vehicle was hit by an IED, he was the blasts sole survivor, he had severe trauma on both feet and received several shrapnel injuries including to the eyes, ears and face. Tate said McDufe underwent 54 surgeries and rehabilitation for doctors to successfully save his feet and him and his wife received special services from the Yellow Ribbon Fund. After returning home and participating in the Wounded Warrior Project and hunting with fellow wounded warriors he would spend time outdoors, said Tate. Due to the positive impact of the Wounded Warriors Project and hunting and shing McDuffie started his own charity, the Wounded Warrior Fishing, where he would provide beach and shing trips for Wounded Warriors and their families. His military decorations include the Purple Heart, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, the Honorable Commendation Medal, the Air Force Commendation Medal and the Air Force Combat Action Medal, he said. It is a tremendous honor that I am able to stand before you and be able to thank the men and women who have fought for this country before me as well as those who will come after me, said McDufe. I just want to share what Veterans Day means to me and share what we can do as Veterans to help each other. To those who have joined us this evening I want to thank you for your sacrices as well as your family members that stood by your side through it all because we all know without our family members a lot of the stuff that we can do now wouldnt be possible. To the World War II veterans he said no words could describe his gratitude. Kids, if you want a real role model, nd a World War II veteran and learn as much as you can because they have so much history, he said. I want to skip to the Vietnam veterans, if I dont call your conict its not due to disrespect, just to Vietnam veterans I want to give a special thanks because we all know this country didnt handle it the way they should have. I stand before you saying a special thank you because when the ones from Iraq and Afghanistan and when I came home the red carpet was rolled out and I owe all that honor to all of the Vietnam veterans; you had two options when those from Iraq and Afghanistan started coming home, you couldve been still upset and bitter at the country that did you wrong or you could be our mentors. He said when he got home after his tour and he was going into physical therapy he was met by a double-amputee Vietnam veteran. He told me to get up out of bed, theres more to life to live for than what I can think of in my mind, so I stand here thanking that generation for what youve went through, said McDufe. Veterans Day is a day for us to celebrate what we all went through, whether it was in a time of war or not is just as important. Owen Powell gave a presentation honoring Joel C. Mayo, a local veteran who lost his life during a combat mission. We must always remember that a veteran has a family, that family suffers, we miss those in harms way, we are always under anxiety, said Powell. I watched on the History Channel all those men from World War II, crying because of someone they left behind and not making it and 60 and 70 years later, theyre still crying. We have one particular individual that had a family, Joel Mayo and he has four brothers with us, Richard, James, John and Greg. He said those are family members who have shared the pain of someone trying to do their job. On April 24, 1980 the United States took on a daring operation called Eagle Claw because we had hostages in Iran and Ill summarize so the historians dont try to correct on great detail, said Powell. An operation was created to take those people out of Iran but because of weather conditions, sand and other factors involved two helicopters bumped and an explosion occurred and Joel Mayo, Engineer Technician, did his best to save those people but in the process of saving their lives, Joel Mayo, who used to live and walk on the streets of this town, died. That was Joel Mayo; he was more than just a soldier, he is our hero and we must not forget.

Owens also requested that the board consider her request again for school board workshops at least once a month. For a new school board member such as myself I feel that these could be very benecial, said Owens. Kolmetz made a motion once again to have audio recordings of the school board meetings be available online, which died due to lack of motion. She made a motion once again to have the recommended personnel provided by the superintendent also provide their degree and experience, which also died due to lack of motion. Kolmetz had made these two requests before at the previous meeting held on Oct. 15, which both died due to lack of a second at that time as well.

This Veterans Day week, Id like to spotlight another World War II veteran, Thomas E. (Coach) Segers. I met the Segers family, consisting of T.E., Betty and son, Tommy, in 1954 when they moved to Bonifay from Jasper, Ala. Mr. Segers had taken a position as teacher/ basketball coach at Bethlehem High School. My husband was also teaching there, so we quickly became friends. Shortly after the move, they became the proud parents of twin girls, Vicky and Kathy. Trying to help Betty as much as possible with three little ones and my one, I quickly decided I didnt want twins, as precious as they were. Not too long after, a daughter, Cindy, was welcomed into our family and a year later, a son, Glen, so Betty returned the favor many times over helping me. Later, Paul and Melea joined the Segers family. When she and I went grocery shopping or anywhere else together, we had a wagon body full of children, though neither of us had a wagon to haul them in. Recently, we joined the Segers family now consisting of numerous in-laws and grandchildren plus about 50 of the former basketball players who lovingly knew Mr. Tom Segers as Coach at Bethlehem High School from 1954 through 1968 to celebrate his 90th birthday. That occasion was observed at the home of daughter Melea and Todd Flannigan. The coach was in his glory surrounded by family and friends as many of the former players led by and told him what he had meant to him through the years. All expressed how much they loved and appreciated him. One in particular told him how much it had meant to him that Mr. Segers drove him to his home across the river after basketball practice every day. Otherwise, he would certainly not have been able to play basketball and most likely would not have stayed in school to graduate. Tom Segers was born in Walker County, Ala., Oct. 25, 1922, to Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Segers (Fannie) where he grew up with two younger brothers. He nished high school at Jasper High School in Jasper, Ala., in 1942. After that, as most young men of his generation, he enlisted in the Army Air Corps. After basic training, he served in England as a ground crew member for the bombing raids launched by the U.S. military into enemy territory. When he was discharged after WWII ended, Segers returned to Alabama and, using his GI Bill entitlement, attended Walker Jr. College where he played on the schools football squad. One of his teammates was George Lindsey better known as Goober on the Andy Grif th show. His antics kept them entertained. He then went on to Florence, Ala., and graduated from North Alabama University. Before coming to Holmes County, he was employed rst as a night school for veterans nishing their high school education. In 1968, after the infamous teacher walk out, Segers came to Holmes County High School and taught Science and other subjects as well as continued to assist in basketball and other athletic programs. Mr. Segers is an avid outdoorsman, especially enjoying shing. He also enjoys making (tying) ies for y shing. His angler skills kept many meals on the Segers table, which was a blessing considering the low pay with which teachers were compensated in the early years. That healthy eating style might also account for his longevity and his brain acuity. Though he suffers some of the in rmities of aging, he recognized every one of his former basketball players who attended his 90th birthday party. He is doing well, too, to remember the names of all those grandchildren. Our hats are off and our sincere appreciation is to Thomas Elbert Segers for defending our country and helping to preserve freedom for future generations. We are also grateful to him for his carrying on the battle in the classroom and on the basketball courts for the hearts, minds and morals of generations of children who have become our leaders of today. The three preceding articles are now history, and we must now take another direction. It should be explained that all the past three topics were being pursued at the same time and were all on the drawing board, also known as a computer, as the three subjects were developed. This resulted in a minimum of errors, which I ask you to please excuse. The writers mind has been on the subject of communication and conversation for many days. Observation is made daily of just how much the small handheld electronic devices of today dominate the way human beings are conversing with each other. All of this takes the Prattlers thoughts back to the more simple times of life on the farm, with no electricity and very few of what is now considered everyday, modern conveniences. My mind has dwelled on just what the family, and those we came in contact with, talked about. We were a large family and had many, many farm workers come and go, as well as other family, friends and neighbors who dropped by for a chat and ended up having a meal with us. Several thoughts of everyday conversation among those we came in contact with include many topics. Our mother and her associates often talked about the merits of the our used, plain or self-rising. The objection to self rising seemed to be that the additives allowed it to get the title of self-rising. The abiding opinions of the housewives seemed to be, Let us add our own leavening to the our for our particular need just as it came from the mill. Coffee was also a topic of conversation and was not necessarily limited to the ladies. Men joined in that conversation, especially when it came to the discussion of with chicory or without out chicory. Chicory, a plant, can be used as a coffee substitute, or mixed with real coffee, when the root is dried and roasted. Our mother seemed to support the no chicory added in the making of coffee in the Marie Wells kitchen. She talked very little about her deprivations in the formative years, but looking back and realizing some of the obvious sad experiences in childhood, it is apparent that coffee, and the importance of it being the pure and unadulterated, was one of the few luxuries in her life. Pure coffee was keenly important to her maternal grandparents, Charlie and Mariah Archer Cook, who reared her and the younger brother, Edward Harris, from a tender age. My memory of coffee being made in my mamas kitchen includes smelling the whole grain coffee bean being roasted in the wood burning oven before grinding it with a hand coffee grinder attached to the kitchen wall. It was a wonderful aroma to be awakened to, although coffee was forbidden to the younger set during my early years. Men and women joined in the conversation around our dinner table, especially when we had company, regarding the merits and demerits of corn meal, with some preferring coarse ground meal over ne ground. The color of the corn, white or yellow, also entered into the discussion. Our great uncle, Bud Cook, owned and operated the only grist mill that was ever my privilege to see in operation. He also was in the turpentine business and my memory permits me to recall that distilling operation while in process. After Uncle Buds untimely death at the age of 43, his family continued to operate both mills for many years. My rst experience of actually seeing the grist mill grinding corn came when our dad, Hugh Wells, permitted his young son, Perry, to accompany him to the mill. It was a water powered, wellengineered and professionally built mill, and all of his older sons, Loran, Lloyd, Lewis, Lester and Lansing, had been trained to grind the corn into meal, with the customer electing coarse or ne ground meal as the nal product. Vivid in my mind, the rst action when all parties entered the old mill house was to open the gates in the under pining, thus allowing the water to rush in, making contact with the water wheels, which set the grinding rocks into motion. The next step was to dump the corn into the hoppers for the grinding to begin. The deafening noise of the whole process lingers in my thoughts even today. Later in life, your writer learned the expression he must have learned to whisper in a mill house, surely came from some one who had the experience of all the clatter of the machinery doing its job in presenting the nished product of quality corn meal. Both male and female joined in a discussion that came along just as the Prattler was approaching his teen years. This centered around a product called grits, which had just come on the market. It, too, is a corn product, however not produced at the Cook Grist Mill to my recollection. There was some resistance to grits by some households and few approved of replacing rice with the new invention. As I remember, grits soon became accepted with us, with rice also remaining on our mothers list of dishes she prepared where grits would not substitute for rice. To this date, I dont know of anyone who prepares chicken and grits! Butter versus margarine, sugar versus saccharin and iced tea over all forms of milk were possibly discussed around our home when others were present. Butter, sugar and iced tea won out over their competition at our dinner table, although sugar substitutes and margarine are heavily used today. The ways of seasoning homemade sausage usually arose, especially at hog killing time. My dad, who never lost his sense of humor, would quickly add that I try to put enough sage and hot pepper into the makings so that adults can eat only a few and children can not eat them at all. There are many more areas of discussions that were face to face with never the thought that electronics would take the place of the wonderful art of communication my generation was able to enjoy. An effort may be made to explore into more of these profound discussions. See you all next week. PERRYS PRATTLEPerry Wells HAPPY CORNERHazel Wells Tison Spotlighting WWII veteran Thomas E.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, November 13, 2013By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Making a difference through volunteering was the main point made by two representatives from Emerald Coast Hospice on Wednesday. The hospice recently opened a location at 1330 South Blvd. in Chipley. Emerald Coast Hospice employees Margo Lamb with volunteer services and Community Liaison Cecily Smith spoke to the Bonifay Kiwanis Club to educate the public on hospice and to nd volunteers. Smith opened by talking about their newest location. We did that because we had such a need for patient care on this side (of the hospices service area) and it was growing, she said. We actually have more patients on this side than on the Marianna side that should tell you how many people need hospice services in this area. She said there is a common misconception when it comes to hospice care. Most people think that when youve got hospice care that youre going to pass away or die right away, and thats just not the case most of the time, she said. Hospice care is for those with a life-limiting illness. You do have to have a physicians order to be under hospice, but not to be referred. Anyone could be referred, she said, and it doesnt just include cancer patients; it also covers chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, renal disease and Alzheimers. The Memory Care Program is an excellent program for those who have Alzheimers, but its also good for the caregivers as well because a lot of the caregivers are the ones that are suffering, Smith said. They are the ones that are taking care of someone with Alzheimers, and they are the ones that are staying up all night. One of the things were doing for that is hiring extra nurses to provide care 24 hours, especially for those who have Alzheimers because a lot of them have sundowners. She said sundowners refers to those suffering with Alzheimers who stay up during the night. We do provide 24-hour care, 365 days out of the year, and a referral doesnt have to come from a physician; it can come from a member of the community, Smith said. And the thing is to get in there as soon as possible and not be only days away from dying. The preferred amount of time is within six months to a year to be able to get in and educate the family. She said they not only provide nursing care but also provide social workers who can handle wills and psychosocial issues, as well as chaplains and volunteers. Smith then introduced Lamb to explain about the volunteer program. One of the things that got me so interested in this position, besides the fact that I have a health care background, is that I volunteered when I rst got here just to get in touch with the surrounding community, Lamb said. Its a great way to reach out to the community and make a difference, and thats probably the biggest reason why people come forward to volunteer. A good portion of our volunteers are folks who have had an experience with hospice, whether it be with our hospice or with another hospice company. She said there are many levels of volunteering. The most obvious is being with the patient, she said. Patient care services is where you would go into the home or into the nursing home or in the hospital and sit with that patient and offer them companionship, emotional support and friendship. Its amazing how much they will tell a volunteer versus a nurse or a doctor or a family member. Sometimes patients are afraid to share certain things with their loved ones, Smith said. Patient Care Services is a great way to step in and help, she said. Another service provided through Patient Care Services is caregiver relief. Those caregivers need to be able to get out of the home themselves and go to doctors appointments, hair appointments, drive their other family members other places. Thats where the volunteer comes in. There are certain things that a caregiver cannot do such as lifting, feeding and administering medication, she said. We also make sure that before a volunteer is given that there is a good t between the caregiver, patient and volunteer. Another aspect of volunteering is bereavement, thats after a family member has gone through hospice services and has passed away. We keep a family in our services for 13 months where the family can continue to receive services to cope with the loss of their loved one. Smith said there are also gatherings where grieving families can get together, eat and connect with other grieving families. Its very therapeutic, she said. It helps them to be able to open up and to talk about it. Another volunteer aspect is clerical and administrative, if you know of anyone who is looking to get out of the home and work a couple hours a month, they can come into the Chipley or Marianna ofce and work side by side in the ofce. There are also event volunteers that help out with events such as the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo, Sunland Festival and Marianna Arts Festival. We also have volunteers that go out to a patients home and do yard work, move couches, move furniture around to bring in a hospital bed, Smith said. The other aspect to volunteering is just giving back to your community and being there to make a difference and if anyone is interested in volunteering Id love to meet with you and sit down. Its about an hour orientation where we do a background check, nd out your likes and dislikes and nd out more about you and what youre interested in doing.

SPORTS www.bonifaynow.com ASectionBy RANDAL SEYLER638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY It was a tale of two Tigers but in the end, the Chipley Tigers were too much for the Graceville Tigers to handle, and the Chipley squad nished their season with a 48-14 Homecoming win over their Jackson County counterparts at Philip Rountree Stadium on Friday. Two big runs made the difference for Chipley (73, 2-2), including a 85-yard interception return for a touchdown and a 77-yard scoring run by senior Kobe McCrary set the tone for the evening and kept the Graceville squad (4-6, 1-3) on the ropes. Chipley drew rst blood when quarterback Jordan Finch connected with junior Bradley Hall in the end zone with a 13-yard pass with 4:54 to play in the rst quarter. The extra point attempt was no good, but Chipley was up 6-0. A minute and a half later, Graceville junior Jared Padgett found the end zone from 5-yards out, capping an 80-yard drive that began with senior Rashard McKinnies 65-yard kick return. Freshman Bryce Jowers kick was good to give Graceville a 7-6 edge going into the second quarter. With 8:08 left to play in the half, a fumbled snap on a eld goal attempt saw Chipleys kicker Adrain Sims toss the ball to junior Bradley Hall for a touchdown from the 16 yard mark, and McCrary was there to add the PAT to put Chipley ahead 14-7 going into the half. The third quarter opened with McCrary returning the opening kick 77 yards to score, and Sims added the point after to put Chipley ahead 21-7. Graceville replied in kind one minute later, however, when Padgett scrambled 56 yards to score. Jowers kick was good and Graceville closed the gap to 21-14, but that was as far as theyd go the rest of the evening belonged to Chipley. Less than three minutes and four plays later, Chipley was back in the end zone, this time thanks to a 64-yard kick return by sophomore Zack Campbell, putting the Tigers at the Graceville 16. The Chipley offense stalled out for three tries, before Finch connected with Hall to score. Sims added the extra point and Chipley was leading 28-14. In the opening seconds of the fourth quarter, McCrary nabbed a Graceville pass at the Chipley 15-yard line then ran it back 85 yards to score to make it 34-14 with 11:32 to play. McCrary added another six points with 9:33 remaining when he scrambled 15 yards following a Graceville fumbled punt that turned over the ball the Chipley inside the Graceville 20. Sims boot was good for an extra point and the score was 41-14. Wyatt Brock added the nal touchdown of the evening, scampering 5-yards on a sweep to score. Sims kicked the extra point and the Chipley Tigers led 48-14 with 4:22 left to play.

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 Page 7By DAVID ADLERSTEINHalifax Media Services EASTPOINT The Vernon Yellow Jackets scored on both their rst and last plays and frequently in between as they swarmed Franklin County 48-6 Friday night in Class 1A football. Junior wide receiver Austin Brown swept right on the opening play from scrimmage and scampered 58 yards to score. Junior Aaron Bowers kick was good, and with 11:43 left in the rst quarter the rout was on against the winless Seahawks, who nished 0-9. We just wanted the kids to be able to enjoy themselves and have fun tonight and let the young kids play, Vernon coach Bobby Johns said. And not get anyone injured. Vernon won its seventh straight game and takes a 7-3 record into the rst round of the playoffs next week. On the last play of the game, freshman running back Johnshae Works scored from 21 yards to produce the nal margin. Senior wide receiver Julian Silas had a 48-yard scoring run for the Yellow Jackets midway through the rst quarter, about the same distance that sophomore Ryan Malloy scored about 3 minutes later. In between, an errant snap sailed over Seahawk senior punter Alex Causeys head resulting in a Vernon safety. With a 23-0 lead going into the second quarter, Johns pulled his starters, with his JV lineup playing the entire second half. Seahawk sophomore defensive back Matt Murray gave Franklin County hope with 10:37 left in the second quarter as he intercepted a pass on the Seahawks 40 from Vernon sophomore quarterback Tristan Porter. But the Seahawks offense was unable to capitalize. Not until 8 minutes remained in the third quarter was Franklin County able to score, then when senior quarterback Logan McLeod threw a 17yard touchdown strike to Causey. The Seahawks managed a couple of surprises, including a fake punt against the Vernon starters early in the game. Vernon senior Dallas Harris scored on a 32-yard run with 8:37 left in the rst half. Porter tossed a 10-yard scoring pass to freshman Isiah Cook and Vernon led 35-0 at halftime. Midway through the third quarter Vernon sophomore quarterback Darrius Peterson scored on a 9-yard run. Johns said his team will have its work cut out when it hosts reigning Class 1A state champion Northview on Friday. Weve continued to get better every week, and well have to play a really, really good four-quarter game to have any kind of chance, he said. Our kids are excited to have that opportunity. Special to the Times-AdvertiserBONIFAY Saturday was a perfect day for football, starting out cool and the high temperature reaching only about 70 degrees. The games played determined who will make it to the playoffs this Saturday at Memorial Field. The football action began with the 5-7 year olds with the little Blue Devils against the Bethlehem Wildcats. After the action packed game was over the Devils were on top 56-8. Rayce Grifn, Dawson Taylor, Aiden Justice, Nathan Whiddon, Nathaniel Hannah, River Thomas, and Colton Serpas all making a touchdown. On defense Cain Burnham recovered two fumbles with Eli Cosson, Hutch Taylor and Brian Bradshaw contributing to hold the Wildcats to 8 points. These little Devils will have a playoff game on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. against Panama City/Glenwood. The next Blue Devils team to take the eld was the 8-10 year olds at 10:30 a.m. The Blue Devils made it look easy rolling to a 56-0 victory. After these Devils got ahead they let multiple players whom otherwise dont get a chance to run the ball, get a chance to score. Kalen Evans, Brock Bowen, EJ Reddice, Laine Nallick, Zane Gilmore each made one touchdown and Joshua Bane made two. Cade Foxworth, Gunner Cates, and Brennan Richards added two point conversions. The Blue Devil defense didnt allow a single point this game or the rest of the season for that matter. They are undefeated and go into the playoffs in the No. 1 spot and will be playing the Blue Devil team Gold in this weeks playoff game at 5:30. The older 1113 year olds game didnt go so well and were defeated 48-0. Some notable plays were the 30-yard reception thrown by Markus Hammack and caught by Alex Shack, and Xavier Davis and Chance Bailey making several nice rushing gains. On defense Nathan Wilkerson, Jacob Haddock, and Hammack made good tackles and AJ Swartz made a tackle and recovered the corresponding fumble. The 11-13 year olds will play next Saturday for a wildcard slot in the playoffs. Their rst action comes at 9 a.m. this Saturday. The gold team played in Vernon this past week and lost 10-0. They will be playing the Blue Devil Blue team in this weeks playoffs. With the action starting at 9 a.m. this Saturday your $3 admission gets you in to see eight different games.

LocalA8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, November 13, 2013By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Hundreds of students from both Bonifay Middle School and Holmes County High School gathered together as Holmes County High School hosted a Veterans Day Presentation on Monday, honoring local veterans and teaching students the importance of honoring veterans. On Veterans Day, America pauses to honor every service member who has ever worn one of our nations uniforms, said Lieutenant Colonel Sean Leeman. Each time our country has come under attack they have risen to her defense. Each time our freedoms have come under assault they have responded with resolve. Leeman introduced their guest speaker, Cynthia Brooks, a Holmes County High teacher who has been BETA sponsor at Holmes County High School for 25 years and is an honorary Holmes County High School JROTC captain. The people of hope are those who believe that God created them for a purpose and that he will provide for their needs as they seek to fulll His purpose in their lives, is a quote from Pope John Paul II, said Cynthia Brooks. As we honor these veterans today for their service to our country we must ask ourselves what we have done or what are we going to do with the freedoms these men and women have sacriced to give us. I would like to tell you the story of one veteran that I know very well; he saw the sacrice all around him and understood the gift of freedom he was given and was able to follow his dreams because of the sacrice of the veterans that came before him. She was speaking of her husband Dr. Herbert Brooks, who was born in Washington D.C. on Dec. 3, miles south of the Mason-Dixon Line. She said during his nal year of medical school he entered in the Navy Senior medical student program and interned with the U.S. Navy in Portsmouth, Va., serving as a medical ofcer in orthopedics. After that, she said he entered the Navy school of Aviation Medicine in Pensacola where he received intensive training in ophthalmology and ight training. He was assigned to Ellyson Field helicopter training command in Pensacola for three years. As a Flight Surgeon, Dr. Brooks was responsible for making sure that ight personnel were healthy enough to y, but just as important he had to know exactly how a pilot feels, which required that he y with them routinely, she said. Unlike Air Force pilots, Navy pilots have to be able to take off and land on a moving carrier ight deck only 600 feet long, the length of two football elds; a very dangerous occupation. She said he was transferred to an experimental jet ghter squadron in Point Mugu, Calif. near Vandenberg Air Force Base, which is the headquarters of the Pacic missile range. He was promoted to Lieutenant Commander and participated in high altitude, high-speed weapon and radar research, she said. On one occasion, as Dr. Brooks ew radarintercept in the back seat of an F-4 Phantom jet off of the coast of California, his pilot attempted to land on the carrier deck, but the tail hook of the jet failed to catch one of the three cables that crossed the ight deck, said Brooks. The jet stalled and started to fall into the water in front of the carrier, which meant certain death. Fortunately the pilot, a former Blue Angel, gunned the engine and the jet came alive again and nally lifted them out of harms way, spraying seawater on everyone on the ight deck. She said there was another incident where a pilot got lost over the Pacic Ocean but thanks to another pilot nding them on radar, guided them to the runway. These are only two examples of the many narrow escapes for Dr. Brooks during his Navy career, she said. In April 1961, a young and inexperienced President John F. Kennedy faced the rst major crisis of his presidency when the tiny island of Cuba, 90 miles off the coast of Florida, was quickly becoming a foothold for Communist Russia in the Western Hemisphere and President Kennedys challenge was to stop this incursion without starting World War III. He decided to help the Cuban rebels by sending U.S. aircraft to provide air support but the rst wave was unsuccessful and President Kennedy cancelled the second wave of aircraft leaving many freedom ghters stranded. She said among those in route from California to Cuba was radar intercepting ofcer Lt. Commander Herbert Brooks aboard an F-4 Phantom jet. He resigned his Navy commission, completed a two-year residency in family practice and moved his family to Bonifay, she said. When Dr. Brooks rst visited Bonifay in October of 1964 he was only suppose to stay a week lling in for a vacationing doctor but he fell in love with the community and the people and decided to return when he had nished his residency. Over the past ve decades Dr. Brooks, a Board Certied Family Physician, has served ve generations of patients with dedication and compassion and delivered more than 1,000 babies during his medical career. We must all be constantly vigilant to prevent our constitutional rights from being taken away from us little by little; much like a frog that doesnt realize he is in hot water until it is too late, she said.

After the parade, visitors and veterans alike shared a lunch sponsored by the city of Bonifay and served by members of the Holmes County Mounted Posse and Bonifay Fire and Rescue. I would like to take a moment and re ect on why we have this, said Retired Sgt. Major of the U.S. Army Terry Mears. It was the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th hour that this all started. I just want to take this time to make sure everyone remembers that the reason why we can have this celebration is because of all these veterans that are here, and I can tell you that freedom is not free. He said most of those veterans present had seen combat. We know the dedication, the actual agony and sometimes the disappointment we see on that battle eld, not just with our comrades but enemy were facing, Mears said. Id like to take a moment of silence and remember all those who have not come back and have given their all, and theyre buried on foreign shores, foreign graves and their missing in action and prisoners of war. Two attending the Veterans Day lunch said they were disappointed in their schools lack of consideration of the holiday and the attendance of this years event. My concern is how were out for Rodeo Day and out for Martin Luther King but were not out for Veterans Day, said Haleigh Dunn, 12, a seventhgrader at Ponce de Leon High School. We should be out showing our support to our troops and honoring those who died to save our ag and our freedoms. Mahcie Sarah Holsonback, 15, a 12th-grade home school student, said she was disappointed in the number of people who attend the rodeo parade but not the Veterans Day parade. Its just disappointing that everyone can come to the Rodeo Parade but no one can come out and support the veterans, because theyre everything were thankful for. I think its important for younger kids and even teenagers to come and not just all the older ones coming out and supporting our veterans. Dunn said there should be more in attendance at the Veterans Day Parade and Luncheon. I just think its a shame that theres like 300 people gathered at the rodeo, and theres only a couple here, Dunn said. There should be more people here, at the Veterans Day Program, to support our troops. Bonifay honors the nations heroes VETERANS DAY 2013PHOTOS BY CECILIA SPEARS | Extra

Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3As animal lovers, we always want what is best for our pets. From the most nutritious food to the very best in veterinary care, a lot goes into making our furry friends happy. For many pet owners, there comes a time when a difcult decision must be made: Does my pet really need this surgery? Will they be happier and healthier because of it? Deciding whether the risks outweigh the benets for Fidos elective surgery can be a trying task, but having all of the relevant information can make the decision a bit easier. Unlike surgeries that are necessary to save an animals life, elective surgeries are deemed not vital or sometimes merely cosmetic: they are, in other words, optional. Surgeries that lie within this gray area leave pet owners with a careful choice to consider. A few common elective surgeries are spaying/neutering, declaw removals, and gastroplexy, said Dr. Mark Stickney, Clinical Associate Professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. The timing of an elective surgery can revolve around several various factors. Usually, the sooner an orthopedic problem is corrected, the less longterm damage will occur. If the surgical repair will be just as effective regardless of the duration of the issue, the decision of when to go ahead with surgery depends on how the animals quality of life will be affected. Your pet should have pre-anesthetic blood work done, be up to date on vaccines, and should fast for 8-12 hours before surgery, said Stickney. Veterinarians highly suggest that pre-anesthetic blood screening be done before the surgery because although most surgeries have minimal risk of complications, it isnt rare to nd an underlying health problem that doesnt surface until the animal is already under anesthesia. In the midst of surgery is not the best time to discover your pet has a detrimental heart problem. However, if the reason for the elective surgery is merely cosmetic and doesnt aim to improve your pets quality of life, it is not usually recommended nor justied. For instance, various surgeries to lift and tuck your pet in order to meet a certain breeds standard are becoming increasingly popular among pet owners. When considering these cosmetic procedures for your pet it is important to keep in mind the possible pain inicted and risks associated merely to achieve a certain look. Putting a pet under anesthesia can be dangerous for even under the best circumstances, and to do so for cosmetic reasons alone can be considered unethical. Each elective surgery is unique, and speaking with your veterinarian to thoroughly evaluate the pros and cons of surgery beforehand is a necessity. After thoroughly researching information specic to the surgery for Fido, the ultimate decision lies with the pet owner. Though there may not be a clear yes or no answer on whether or not to go ahead with surgery, you will have more condence, knowing that you did the best you could to improve the quality of life for your pet.

I just wanted to remind you that were here for a very serious reason, said Bonifay Elementary School Principal Rodd Jones. Just think about what were actually talking about here today because its all about these men and women seated on these bleachers and showing our appreciation to them. Our veterans are a part of an unbroken chain of men and women who have served our country with honor and distinction. He explained that Veterans Day is a day for Americans to show their appreciation for those who have fought for Americas freedom. Their sacrices have helped secure more than two centuries of American progress and their legacy afrms that no matter what confronts us or what trials we face there is no challenge we can not overcome and our best days are still ahead, said Jones. Our men and women in uniform have taught us about strength, duty, devotion and resolve, the cornerstones of the commitment to protect and defend that has kept our country safe for over 200 years. In war and in peace their service has been seless and their accomplishments have been extraordinary. That day was a chance for students and staff to show their appreciation to our military and pay the tribute and the respect that they deserve, he said. Every year students create posters to show their appreciation to veterans and every year winners are chosen from those participants. This years winners are third place winners Mackenzie Charles and Chayce Williams, second place winners Jacob Pridgen and Cora Osteen and rst place winners Colten Jones and Nadia Payne. Id like to thank all of those families and our students who participated in this years Veterans Day Poster Contest, said Laura Sims of Bonifay Elementary School Guidance. The posters were incredibly beautiful and our students and faculty and visitors to Bonifay Elementary School have enjoyed viewing them throughout the week. Fortunately we had three servicemen come from across the street and judge our poster contest this year, they did an excellent job and we really appreciate their help. At the event Bonifay Middle School Band provided the pre-program music, Holmes County High Schools Junior Reserve Ofcers Training Corps provided the presentation of the colors and Rie Drill Demonstration, kindergarten led the Pledge of Allegiance and Star Spangled Banner, rst grade sang Oh, I Love America, third grade sang America, the Beautiful and forth grade presented the Preamble of the Constitution, Reading of Winning Essays by Pranav Patel and Maddie Dunn, and God Bless America. Im glad to be an American, said Jones. One thing about America is that even though weve had our differences like in elections with the Democrats and the Republicans were still like a big family. When the going gets tough and things get rough we seem to always manage to come together and these men and women are true heroes that have demonstrated a love and a sacrice that each one of us should remember. He said he read a book about a man whos people were in bondage and he was willing to sacrice himself and through his sacrice he demonstrated a love. In that book it says no greater love hath any man than to lay down his life for a friend, said Jones. These men and women have demonstrated that same kind of love. They may not have had to lay down their life, but theyve had friends who may have had to lay down their lives for the freedoms that we have and on Veterans Day every year were going to come out here and remember them, but dont do it just on Veterans Day; any day that you see a veteran I challenge you to go up to them and say thank you because they dont hear that enough.

Faith EVENTSGrowing up back in the day, most people put a lot of credence on promises and lived by the motto, A man is as good as his word. Most agreements were sealed with a handshake. If you said you were going to do something, you did it. Period. Today it is an altogether different story. We need a lawyer with a pile of paperwork in order to do anything these days. A lawyer has the sneakability to make words say anything convenient at the time depending on what the word is is, and when you said it. It matters not what a man says anymore only what he can get away with at the time. This brings me to the dilemma avor of the week. Not mentioning any names, I am too much of a gentleman for that, but some person living in my house can be a little tricky when it comes to the usage of language. I may be the wordsmith in our house but she de nitely is the word butcher. She can take any word and slice it so thin its meaning all but disappears. A while back, we were having a little discussion centering on one of my favorite topics, apple fritters. Anybody who knows me knows that an apple fritter is at the top of my list of scrumptious delicacies. My motto: An apple fritter a day makes it all worth living and two turns it into heaven. Satan may very well have tempted Eve with an apple, but God has more than made up for that by introducing into humanity a freshly baked apple fritter. At least, that is my interpretation. Another theologian in our house has different hermeneutics on the subject. In our discussion, I was reminding the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage that she made a promise that if I liked an apple fritter I could eat an apple fritter. I laid out my argument very clear, at least I thought so, and encouraged her to follow suit. She then disrupted the whole discussion by insisting on evidence. When, she said with a very suspicious look on her face, did I ever say if you liked your apple fritter you could eat your apple fritter? It was up to me at this point to produce a strategy that would convince her she said exactly that. Dont you remember, I said as con dently as I could possibly muster at the time, we were at a restaurant and our discussion centered on dessert. I dont remember such an occasion. I started to wiggle a little bit but I knew if I could win this argument at this point it would be a great win. It is at times like this I wish I was a little more like a politician. A politician can say something and it means different things to different people at different times. It does not matter what they say at any particular time it can always be reinterpreted the way a politician wants it any particular time he needs it. Oh, how I envy those skills. Let me point out very quickly that according to common knowledge, this is in no way lying. In fact, I am not sure what the de nition of lying is anymore. Nobody lies, they are just being misinterpreted. They can get anybody to believe anything if they rearrange the truth in such a way it is no longer the truth but it is not necessarily a lie. Dont you remember we were talking about dessert, I said as calculatedly as possible, and you said a person should be able to like what they eat and eat what they like? I sighed a deep sigh, smiling inside hoping she would not discover that inner glowing smile. She thought for a moment and then responded, I seem to recall a conversation along that line but I do not recollect that we were talking about apple fritters. The words apple fritters never came up in the conversation as I remember it. My challenge was to reconstruct the memory of that discussion somehow to t in the words apple fritter or at least the idea. When I said that, she said looking at me straight in the eye, I did not have apple fritters on my mind. In fact, if the truth were known, I had broccoli on my mind at that moment. How did broccoli get into this conversation? Nowhere in the recesses of my mind did the word broccoli ever appear. I knew I was losing the battle at this point. It is one thing to say something but it is quite another thing to hear something. Many times what I hear is not really what is being said. At times what is being said is not exactly what I hear, especially if my wife is doing the speaking. Why is it people cannot say what they mean and mean what they say? Only God really says what He means and means what He says. I like the encouragement he gives to Joshua. There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee (Joshua 1:5 KJV). Whatever God says He means and it never changes its meaning from one generation to the next. That is something I can really rely upon. Rev. James L.
