The council charged attorney Jeff Goodman to rewrite the towns noise ordinance and bring it back to the council for approval. The noise ordinance, which went into effect in 1984, went under review as Council Chairman Danny Powell said there were complaints about loud noises all hours of the night. Weve got a lot of businesses that make a lot of noise for example the junkyard next to my business and there are a lot of complaints, Powell said. It cant be helped because it is a business and theres going to be noise. I think we just need to set some times on this ordinance because there are no times at the moment. Powell said the ordinance wasnt just aimed at businesses but residents as well.Special to Halifax Media GroupBETHLEHEM Bethlehem High School will begin its annual Homecoming festivities on Friday, Jan. 17.

Its a tremendous, talented football team. But there is better character on this team than players. They have the guts, the determination, and they love to play for each other. Thats the reason we play. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher on what made his team special. FOR THE AGES The lead changed three times in the nal 4:31 with Kelvin Benjamin and FSU holding the nal one with only 13 seconds remaining in the nal BCS title game. The Seminoles trailed by as many as 18 points at 21-3 and overcame the largest decit in BCS Championship history. Tre Mason rushed for 195 yards, the second-most in a title game, in a losing cause, and the Seminoles edged the Tigers for their third national title and rst since 1999.FSU KEY STATS Jameis Winston was named the offensive MVP and went 6 of 7 for 77 yards on the game-winning drive that ended on a 2-yard pass to Benjamin. Winston nished 20 of 35 for 237 yards and two touchdowns, his first TD pass 11 yards to Chad Abram that pulled FSU within 21-20 in the fourth quarter. Kermit Whiteld returned a kickoff 100 yards with 4:31 to play in the game to give FSU a 27-24 lead before Mason and Auburn regained the advantage three minutes later. Rashad Greene led all receivers with 147 yards on nine catches and Benjamin had 54 yards on four. Florida State linebacker Telvin Smith had 15 tackles, 11 solo, in a game-best effort on defense. TURNING POINTTrailing 21-3 in the second quarter, Karlos Williams took a fake punt around the left end and picked up a key rst down on a 7-yard gain. Devonta Freeman scored seven plays later to trim FSUs decit to 2110 at the half. The score was the spark the Seminoles needed as their defense kept the Tiger s at bay while they continued to chip away and ultimately capped the comeback. By JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com PASADENA, Calif. Florida State seized ownership of Auburns monopoly on miracles Monday night. Jameis Winstons 2-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left put the finishing touches on one of the wildest endings ever witnessed in a BCS Championship as FSU rallied for a dramatic 34-31 victory over the Tigers in the Rose Bowl. The game featured three lead changes in the final 4 minutes as W inston engineered an 80-yard drive after taking over with 1:11 remaining. He connected with Benjamin on the game-winning throw on FSUs last offensive play of the night. Its what big-time players do when everything is on the line, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. They suck it up in the fourth quarter. Florida State finished a perfect season 14-0 with its third national championship. Auburn, 12-2, was seeking to extend the Southeastern Conferences streak of seven consecutive titles but fell tantalizingly short. There was no shortage of players angling for the role of hero down the stretch in the final BCS game before a playoff system is instituted next year It began with Seminole freshman Kermit Whitfield racing 100 yards with a kickoff retur n for a short-lived 27-24 lead with 4:19 remaining. Auburn tailback Tre Mason not only restored the Tigers lead with a 37-yard touchdown run on the ensuing drive, he overtook all-time Aubur n great Bo Jackson while setting a new school record for r ushing yards (1,816) in a season. That only set the stage for Winston, who overcame a brutal start and was tabbed the games offensive most valuable player. The Heisman T rophy-winning redshirt freshman completed 6 of 7 passes for 77 yards on the games penultimate drive, the biggest of which was a 49-yard pass to Rashad Greene to the Tigers 23. Winston later tried to find Greene in the end zone on third-and-8 from the Auburn 10, and Greene was knocked down by Auburn co rnerback Chris Davis before the ball arrived. Following the pass-interference penalty, Winston faked a run to his right and quickly ripped a pass across his body to Benjamin for the game-winning touchdown. This is an unbelievable group of players, Fisher said. Its a tremendous, talented football team But there is better character on t his team than players. They have the guts, the determination, and they love to play for each other. Thats the reason we play. Auburn had two plays in the final 9 seconds to pull off another late-game miracle comparable to its stunning victories over Georgia and Alabama, but one pass fell incomplete and Mason was tackled at the Auburn 36 on the last play of the game. Perhaps bothered by a month-long layoff or rattled nerves, Winston made repeated mistakes in one of his most unsteady performances of a Heisman Trophy-winning season. He locked in on covered receivers and forced throws in the first half, and several of his passes simply sailed off target. Winston avoide d becoming the sixth Heisman-winning quarterback to lose in the BCS Championship. He finished 20-for-35 passing for 237 yards with two touchdowns despite being harassed by a persistent pass rush and totaling just 62 yards in the first half. A costly fumble by the redshirt freshman was recovered by Tigers linebacker Anthony Swain in the second quarter and quickly turned into a 4-yard touchdown run by quarterback Nick Marshall. That gave Auburn a 21-3 lead with 5 minutes left in the first half. Aided by a fourth-down conversion on a fake punt, Winston bounc ed back with a scoring drive capped by Devonta Freemans 3-yard touchdown run just before halftime. Winston had scrambled for 21 yards on the previous play. FSU trailed 21-10 at the break. Auburn outgained the Seminoles 232-156 in the first half, including 113-62 through the air. Marshall completed 14 of 27 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns, and also contributed with his legs with 45 rushing yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. Roberto Aguayos 41-yard field goal trimmed the Seminoles deficit to 21-13 through three quarters. That gap remained with just under 11 minutes left in the game before Chad Abram took a swing pass from Winston 11 yards to the end zone. A foolish unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Freeman after the play forced the Seminoles to settle for Aguay os extra point from the Tiger 18-yard line, however, instead of a two-point conversion attempt from the 3. That preserved a 21-20 lead for Auburn, and the Tigers responded to FSUs touchdown to build a 24-20 margin with place-kicker Cody Parkeys 20-yard field goal with 4:42 remaining. Whitfield gathered Parkeys ensuing kickoff, found a crease along the sideline and turned on the jets, screaming past any pursuers on his way to a 100yard return. He cut it back and hit a seam, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. It was good execution. We didnt kick cover it very well. ... It was uncharacteristic of us, but at the same time youve got to give them credit. THOUSAND ISLANDFreeman rushed for 73 yards and became FSUs rst 1,000yard rusher since W arrick Dunn in 1996. Freeman nished the season with 1, 016 yards and 14 touchdowns. Greene (1,128) and Benjamin (1,011) became FSUs rst receiving tandem with mor e than 1,000 yards since 1995. They combined for 24 touchdowns. FIRSTQUARTERAUBUR N 7, FS U 3 Nick Marshall threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Tre Mason, and No. 2 Auburn led No. 1 Florida State 7-3 after one quarter. All-America kicker Roberto Aguayo made a 35-yard field goal for Florida State, which hadnt trailed in any game since Sept. 28 until the Tigers capitalized on a short field for a 25-yard TD drive end ing in Masons catch on a screen pass. Jameis Winston was 4 for 8 for 43 yards on his 20th birthday for the unbeaten Seminoles, who had run over every opponent in their path to a third national title. Marshall passed for 53 yards early in the game as Auburn shrugged off earlygame jitters including a dropped pass by Ricardo Louis to take an early lead after a short Florida State punt. Marshall threw a swing pass to Mason, who followed his blocking to the end zone. Devonta Freeman rushed for a 21-yard gain on Florida States first play, and Win ston drove the Seminoles to the Auburn 16 on their opening drive. An incomplete pass to the end zone and a third-down sack forced Aguayo to kick just 5:07 in.SECONDQUARTERAUBUR N 21, FS U 10 Nick Marshall rushed for a touchdown and threw scoring passes to Tre Mason and Melvin Ray, leading No. 2 Auburn to a surprising 21-10 lead over No. 1 Florida State at halftime. Mason caught a 12-yard TD pass in the first quarter, and Ray ran alone down the middle with a 50-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter as the underdog Tigers jumped to a stunning 18-point lead on the unbeaten Seminoles. Aided by a fourth-down conversion on a fake punt, Winston bounced back with a scoring drive capped by Devonta Freemans 3-yard touchdown run just before halftime. Jameis Winston showed some serious big-game jitters going 6 for 15 for 62 yards with a key fumble setting up Marshalls 4-yard TD run 5:01 before halftime. Win ston got rolling moments later, leading a 66-yard scoring drive, but faced plenty of work in the second half. Marshall, Wins tons relatively unheralded counterpart, looked sharp in the Auburn backfield, and SEC rushing champion Mason ran for 96 yards. Auburn was the nations top rushing team, but coach Gus Mal zahn showed the SEC champions can fling it as well while racking up 232 yards of offense in the first half.THIRDQUARTERAU BUR N 21, FSU 13 Tre Mason rushed for 101 yards as the Tigers closed in on their third national title and the eighth straight for the SEC, including Auburns second in four years and the fifth straight for the state of Alabama. All-America kicker Roberto Aguayos second field goal of the night accounted for the only third-quarter points for either team as both defenses took charge after a frenetic first half. The powerful Seminoles trailed by 18 points in the second quarter and 21-10 at halftime, but picked up momentum in the third quarter with solid defensive play and improvements by Jameis Winston. He consistently moved Florida State in the third quarter, but only had three points to show for it. After trailing for the first time in any game since Sept. 28, Florida State needed a big finish to become the first team to rally from a halftime deficit to win the BCS title game.QUARTER BY QUARTER RALLY TO REMEMBERAPJameis Winston cradles the crystal football.

Page 16 | The News Herald | Tuesday, January 14, 2014 QUOTABLEIt was a fun game, and we did it for our seniors. It was a fun atmosphere. FSU quarterback Jameis Winston on the nal home game for the teams seniors after he threw for four touchdowns. NOV. 23: FLORIDA STATE 80, IDAHO 14 By JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com TALLAHASSEE Jameis Winston was scrambling around making plays on the football field while state attorney Willie Meggs was busy making comments off of it. Winston and the Florida State football team were en route to an 80-14 drubbing of Idaho at Doak Campbell Stadium as Meggs was telling The Associated Press that if sexual assault charges are pressed against Winston, they likely wont be filed until after Thanksgiving. The timing of Meggs comments was peculiar, particularly because the Seminoles were in the middle of their game against Idaho when he told The Associated Press that it is unlikely a final decision to file charges will be rendered before the holiday. That likely would mean Winston then would be available to play at Florida next Saturday in FSUs regularseason finale. I very seriously doubt that we will be finished by Thanksgiving, Meggs said of his investigation. We still havent gotten everything we need to get. Winston piled up big passing numbers against the Vandals in a little more than two quarters, although he wasnt quite as sharp as he has been throughout the year. The redshirt freshman completed 14 of 25 passes for 225 yards with four touchdowns and lost one fumble. Winston, who was sacked three times, threw touchdown passes to both Kenny Shaw and Kelvin Benjamin before exiting the game in the third quarter with a 49-7 lead. It was a fun game, and we did it for our seniors, Winston said, noting it was the final home game for the teams seniors. It was a fun atmosphere. Devonta Freeman raced 60 yards for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead five minutes into the game, and Winston and Benjamin connected on a 32-yard touchdown pass for a 14-0 lead with 5:18 left in the opening quarter. Linebacker Telvin Smith returned an interception 79 yards a little over two minutes later for FSUs third touchdown of the quarter and a 21-0 lead. FSU compiled three more touchdowns in the second quarter to build an overwhelming 42-7 halftime cushion. Winston fired a 46-yard strike to Shaw for a 28-0 lead, and James Wilder Jr. surged across the goal line on a 1-yard run for a 35-0 margin with 5:54 left in the half. Idahos Richard Montgomery scored on a 15-yard pass from Taylor Davis with 41 seconds remaining before halftime, but FSU countered quickly with Winstons 20-yard touchdown pass to Shaw with 4 seconds left in the quarter. FSUs domination continued in the second half. Winston hit Benjamin with a 21-yard touchdown pass, and Karlos Williams contributed with a 4-yard touchdown run for a 56-7 margin. Place-kicker Roberto Aguayo added a 42-yard field goal late in the third quarter for a 52-point lead.FSU keeps humming, routs IdahoROBERTO AGUAYO FSU remained at No. 2 for the second straight week in the AP poll and also was steady at second in the BCS ranking before hosting overmatched Idaho for the rst time 80IN NOVEMBERThe game was expected to be a mismatch, but few could predict how badly the outcome would be. FSU scored a school-record 80 points on E.J. Levenberrys 78-yard interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The Seminoles scored 70 or more points for the rst time since 1995 and ended the home schedule with a 7-0 record.FSU KEY STATS Kenny Shaw had a team-high 107 yards and two touchdowns on five receptions. It was the first time he moved past 100 yards in a game during the season with more than 90 four times. Devonta Freeman and Karlos Williams each rushed for 100 yards and combined for 243 and three touchdowns. Freeman became the schools 14th running back with more than 2,000 career yards. Roberto Aguayo set a national record with his 78th consecutive converted extra point in the fourth quarter. He increased his season point total to 125, 15 shy of former FSU kicker Dustin Hopkins school and ACC record. ACC RULEFSU set Atlantic Coast Conference records for touchdowns (80 at the end of this game) and points (607) in a season following the Idaho rout. It broke its previous records set in 1995 and 2012, respectively. NOV 30: FLORIDA STATE 37, FLORIDA 7GAINESVILLE (AP) Kelvin Benjamin shook off one tackler and then three more, bullying his way into the end zone to finish off Florida States most impressive play on a day filled with them. Benjamin was clearly a mismatch just like the game. Jameis Winston threw three touchdown passes to Benjamin, and No. 2 Florida State moved a step closer to playing for the national championship with a 37-7 victory against rival Florida. Tremendous, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. KB has real advantages with his size, speed and athleticism. He can be a very, very special player, and hes starting to develop into that guy. The Seminoles improved to 12-0 for the first time since 1999 and likely will earn a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game by beating Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game next week. Florida, meanwhile, ended its worst season since 1979. The Gators (4-8) lost their final seven games and missed a bowl for the first time since 1990. Floridas bowl streak had been the second-longest in the country, behind Florida States. Although the outcome never was in doubt, the Gators made it interesting early with some stout defense. They hit Winston several times, once even late, and stuffed FSUs running game. But with its offense floundering once again Florida managed just three first downs in the first half the defense eventually wore down. And Winston & Co. took advantage. Winston hooked up with Benjamin for touchdown passes of 45 and 29 yards in the second quarter. Winston found his 6foot-5 target again in the third, a 56-yard connection that would have gone the distance had Benjamin not fallen down while making the catch. Devonta Freeman scored on the next play, weaving untouched from 11 yards out and putting the Seminoles ahead 27-0. Winston and Benjamin recorded the hat trick with a 4-yard score in the fourth. FSU outgained Florida 456-193, most of it through the air. Winston completed 19 of 31 passes for 327 yards. Benjamin caught nine passes for a career-high 212 yards, beating Loucheiz Purifoy early and often. Benjamins previous high was 103 yards receiving at Boston College earlier this year. The coach and player downplayed it afterward. Floridas defense held tough early, giving up just 33 yards and a field goal in the first quarter. Purifoy even intercepted Winstons fifth pass of the game, but the Gators failed to capitalize on the turnover. Austin Hardin missed a 49-yard field goal wide right. It was Floridas ninth missed field goal of the season. As the offense kept stalling, the defense started fading. Everybody started looking at the scoreboard as a collective group and saying, Dang, the offense is just threeand-out, three-and-out, three-and-out, Florida defensive lineman Jon Bullard said. It certainly didnt help that Florida had to throw its offensive game plan out the window after four plays. Trey Burton hurt his left shoulder on his second carry of the game, a fitting finale for the injury-riddled Gators. Coach Will Muschamp said the plan was to line Burton up at quarterback for 35 plays. He ran twice for 47 yards, including a 50-yarder up the middle on his first carry. He injured his shoulder on his second run, Floridas fourth offensive play. He went to the locker room and later returned wearing street clothes.

PERFECTDOZENThe Seminoles surged to a victory after a sluggish start and nished with an unbeaten regular season for the fth time in school history. FSU failed to score more than 40 points for the rst time in 12 games, but that fact wouldnt matter in the coming weeks.FSU KEY STATS Kelvin Benjamin exploded for 212 yards and three touchdowns on nine catches and his day could have been even more impressive minus a few drops. Jameis Winston passed for 327 yards and the three scores while also tossing one interception in his rst meeting with the Gators. James Wilder Jr. led all rushers with 63 yards in what would be his final regular-season game in an FSU uniform. TURNING POINTFSU held a precarious 3-0 lead until 4:24 to play in the second quarter. Thats when Benjamin turned a nervous lead into a comfortable bulge with touchdown grabs of 45 and 29 yards to close out the half. It bolstered the streak of 27 unanswered points before Florida could respond in the fourth quarter. 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com TALLAHASSEE Jameis Winston was scrambling around making plays on the football field while state attorney Willie Meggs was busy making comments off of it.

Freeman, on amassing 343 total yards and ve touchdowns in three meetings vs. the Hurricanes. NOV. 2: FLORIDA STATE 41, MIAMI 14 By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com TALLAHASSEE Round 1 went to Florida State. The third-ranked Seminoles overcame two early turnovers as Devonta Freemans three touchdowns helped them cruise past No. 7 Miami 41-14 in the Atlantic Coast Conference at Doak Campbell Stadium. The Hurricanes fell for the first time, but gave the Seminoles a challenge through three quarters. FSU improved to 8-0 overall and 6-0 in the ACC with sights set on clinching the Atlantic Division at Wake Forest next week.The teams remained on pace to meet again in the ACC Championship Game Dec. 7. Miami (7-1, 3-1) has to fend off Virginia Tech for the Coastal Division title to make Round 2 a reality. Those teams play next week with the winner in control of its destiny.Although that rematch never occurred, the victory not only helped FSU improve to 8-0 for the first time since 1999, but it boosted the possibility of it leaping Oregon when the new Bowl Championship Series standings were revealed. Oregon was second and FSU third, but the Ducks were idle Saturday. It took some physicality in the heavyweight matchup to give FSU the final charge it needed to put away Miami. With the score 21-14 in favor of FSU, Jameis Winston found Kenny Shaw for a 26-yard gain inside the Miami 10, but a scrum at the line of scrimmage gathered the focus of the record crowd of 84,409. No punches were thrown, but players had to be separated, including two engaged in a facemask lock on the turf. James Wilder Jr. dived and hit the pylon on the next play to give FSU a 28-14 lead with 8:33 to go in the third quarter. Miami, which was on the ropes in the first half but rebounded, couldnt respond when needed on its next possession. Stephen Morris long floater was intercepted by P.J. Williams at the FSU 21-yard line one play later. The Seminoles grinded out a response of their own, moving 83 yards, the final 12 by Freeman for a 35-14 lead and control of the game. Miamis final flurry came on the next drive that reached FSUs 26. Duke Johnson was stopped on fourth-and-2 and was knocked out of the game with an ankle injury to end a minor threat.

(AP) Jameis Winston threw two touchdown passes, and No. 3 Florida State tied a school record with six interceptions in a 59-3 rout of Wake Forest that clinched an ACC championship game berth. Nate Andrews took an interception 56 yards for a touchdown and Jalen Ramsey returned a fumble 23 yards for a score on consecutive plays. The Seminoles (9-0, 7-0) claimed the inside track to a BCS title game berth with No. 2 Oregons loss Thursday. They kept firm grasp of it by forcing seven turnovers and breaking the stadium record of 56 points they set in 1994. Florida State outgained Wake Forest (4-6, 2-5) 296-166 and turned those turnovers into five TDs and a field goal. Winston was 17 of 28 for 159 yards in two-plus quarters with an 18-yard TD to Kelvin Benjamin and a 2-yarder to Chad Abram that made it 42-0 at halftime.

Kermit Whitfield returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards for the TD that gave the Seminoles the BB&T Field scoring record. Wake Forests first two quarterbacks, Tanner Price and Tyler Cameron, combined for six completions and 66 yards passing. Price threw three interceptions on four attempts before he was pulled. The first two were returned into the red zone and Andrews took the third back for a score. In matching the team record of six interceptions set against Louisville in 1991, Florida State proved a point there was no Hurricane hangover for these Seminoles after routing rival Miami 41-14 last week. Now the challenge the rest of the way might be to avoid boredom: Boston College is the only team to either hang within 14 points of the Seminoles or score more than 17 points against them. None of their final four opponents entered this week with a winning record.

OCT. 19: FLORIDA STATE 51, CLEM SON 14CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Jameis Winston and Florida State didnt take long to hush Death Valley, making a statement that that could be heard from Alabama to Oregon. The Seminoles remarkable redshirt freshman threw for 444 yards and three touchdowns and No. 5 Florida State crushed No. 3 Clemson 51-14. When the first BCS standings of the season come out today, Florida State should be right there with top-ranked Alabama and secondranked Oregon fighting for the top spots. The Atlantic Coast Conferences game of the year, billed as maybe the leagues biggest game ever, quickly became a Seminoles semina r on how to take apart a Top 5 opponent on its hostile home turf in front of 83,428. We dont play against noise. Were playing against the Clemson Tigers, Winston said. It was amazing, when we were out on the field that first snap. It was loud and we started smiling because we dont play against noise. The game started with two Heisman Trophy contender quarterbacks. It ended with one. Playing in one of the loudest stadiums in the country, Winston was unfazed, going 22 for 34 for Florida State (6-0, 4-0). His first throw was a 22-yard touchdown to Kelvin Benjamin, and he scrambled for a 4-yard touchdown that made it 41-7 with 4:04 left in the third quarter. They took advantage of our mistakes, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. They might be the best team in the country. Tajh Boyd threw two interceptions for Clemson, and his first-quarter fumble was returned 37 yards for touchdown by Mario Edwards. Clems on (6-1, 4-1) turned it over a season-high four times, the first one on the first play from scrimmage. We know were better than how we played, but nobody cares about that, Swinney said. Rashad Greene caught eight passes for 146 yards and two scores, including a 72-yard sprint that made it 24-7 Florida State in the second quarter. The Seminoles broke a five-game losing streak at Memorial Stadium, scored more points than any opponent ever has in Death Valley and gave fourth-year coach Jimbo Fisher his biggest victory since taking over for Bobby Bowden. Florida State tight end Nick OLeary punctuated the beatdown in the third quarter, running over Clemsons Travis Blanks as he tried to make a tackle. Seminoles by a knockout. OLeary finished with five catches for 161 yards. Not long after Clemson made its grand entrance, sprinting past Howards Rock and down the hill onto the field, orange balloons filling the sky above Memorial Stadium, Florida State took control. On the first play from scrimmage Telvin Smith stripped Stanton Seckinger and Terrence Brooks recovered for the Seminoles at the Clemson 34. Two plays later, Winston lofted deep down the sideline to the 6-foot-5 Benjamin, who went up high for the perfectly thrown ball and landed with it inside the pylon. Winston has been even better than advertised in his first season as a starter, hard to believe considering the hype. But this opponent and this setting represented by far the biggest challenge of his young career. Turns out, it was just another showcase game. Lamarcus Joyner forced Clemson turnover No. 2, coming free on a backside blitz and knocking the ball free from Boyd. Edwards sco oped and scored. It was 17-0 with 3:07 left in the first quarter and Death Valley sudde nly didnt seem so daunting. Boyd hit Sammy Watkins with a 3-yard touchdown pass to trim the lead to 10 late in the first quarter. But the Tigers couldnt take advantage of good field position in the second quarter before Winston and his talented receivers struck again.Seminoles crush Tigers, 51-14 N ICK O L EARY FSU came off a bye week and rose to No. 5 in the AP poll prior to traveling to Death Valley to battle third-ranked Clemson QUOTABLEDo we deserve to be in the top two?

OCT. 5: FLORIDA STATE 63, MARYLAND 0 By JASON SHOOT747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com TALLAHASSEE Jameis Winston made the extraordinary seem routine and the routine seem extraordinary. Winston passed for 393 yards and five touchdowns and the eighth-ranked Seminoles silenced No. 25 Marylands offense in a 63-0 demolition of the Terrapins in an Atlantic Coast Conference game at Doak Campbell Stadium. FSU (5-0, 3-0 ACC) now will enjoy a bye week in advance of its highly anticipated showdown with Clemson at Death Valley on Oct. 19. The two unbeaten teams are tied for first place in the ACCs Atlantic Division. Winston, a redshirt freshman who completed 23 of 32 passes, capped five straight drives with a touchdown pass to lead the Seminole rout. He guided FSU on five scori ng drives comprising seven plays or more, and he rarely looked rattled against a Maryland team that came into the game boasting the nations thirdranked scoring defense. Winstons consistency was noteworthy, and he had plenty of moments to shine individually. Late in the third quarter he appeared to be sacked in the backfield. Winston somehow shook off the would-be tackler, then squared up his shoulders and delivered a 21-yard strike to tight end Nick OLeary in the end zone for his fourth TD pass of the day and a 42-0 lead. I can actually tell you that I held the ball too long, Winston said. I just tried to get it to the open guy. Kelvin Benjamin and OLeary each reeled in a pair of touchdown passes and Karlos Williams added two rushing touchdowns for the Seminoles, who scored on seven straight possessions in one stretch. FSU piled up 614 yards of offense against Maryland, which entered the game allowing an average of 263 yards per game, the second-best mark in the ACC. The Terrapins had allowed four touchdowns in their first four games. FSU surpassed th at total by the midway point of the third quarter. Winston guided FSU down the field on a 10-play, 77-yard drive on its first possession, and Williams plunged into the end zone on a 1-yard run for a 7-0 lead with just over 8 minutes left in the first quarter. Devonta Freeman scored on a 5-yard run with 6 minutes remaining in the second quarter for a 14-0 advantage. Terrapins starting quarterback C.J. Brown was knocked out of the game on Marylands ensuing series. FSU defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel planted a shoulder in Browns sternum as Brown released the ball on a pass. Brown remained on the ground for several minutes and walked back to the locker room imme diately after he was able to stand. Maryland officials said Brown was taken away for X-rays. The Seminole defense held Maryland to 234 yards of offense, only 33 on the ground on 25 carries. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said he thought his team played a complete game in all three phases and saved his most glowing comments for the defense. The defense was the story of the day, he said. They dominated from start to finish against great skill guys. They covered well and they rushed (the passer) well. Winston capped a nine-play, 78-yard drive with a 5-yard TD pass to Benjamin with 28 seconds left in the first half as FSU carried a 21-0 lead into halftime.Winston shines against MarylandMARIO ED WARD S FSU was No. 8 in the AP poll for the third straight week and faced its rst ranked opponent in No. 25 Maryland in Tallahassee NOCONTES TThe battle of Top 25 teams turned into a laugher with the Seminoles scoring 42 points in the second half in tying a school r ecord for the most lopsided defeat of a r anked opponent.

RUDEAW AKENINGMaryland felt condent given it averaged almost 500 yards per game prior to being bludgeoned b y FSU. The offensive surge came against four nonconference opponents, however, and the Terr apins 39-point average was sorely missing on this Saturday.

They hit Winston several times, once even late, and stuffed FSUs running game. But with its offense floundering once again Florida managed just three first downs in the first half the defense eventually wore down. And Winston & Co. took advantage. Winston hooked up with Benjamin for touchdown passes of 45 and 29 yards in the second quarter. Winston found his 6foot-5 target again in the third, a 56-yard connection that would have gone the distance had Benjamin not fallen down while making the catch. Devonta Freeman scored on the next play, weaving untouched from 11 yards out and putting the Seminoles ahead 27-0. Winston and Benjamin recorded the hat trick with a 4-yard score in the fourth.

Theyre headed to the ACC title game for the third time in four years and had little trouble claiming the voterimpressing blowout that kept them in the thick of the national championship race. After they went 80 yards in 13 plays on their first drive capped by Wilders 5-yard touchdown run that made it 7-0 the Seminoles ran only four offensive plays while stretching their lead to 35-0.

(AP) Jameis Winston and Florida State didnt take long to hush Death Valley, making a statement that that could be heard from Alabama to Oregon. The Seminoles remarkable redshirt freshman threw for 444 yards and three touchdowns and No. 5 Florida State crushed No. 3 Clemson 51-14. When the first BCS standings of the season come out today, Florida State should be right there with top-ranked Alabama and secondranked Oregon fighting for the top spots. The Atlantic Coast Conferences game of the year, billed as maybe the leagues biggest game ever, quickly became a Seminoles seminar on how to take apart a Top 5 opponent on its hostile home turf in front of 83,428. We dont play against noise. Were playing against the Clemson Tigers, Winston said. It was amazing, when we were out on the field that first snap. It was loud and we started smiling because we dont play against noise. The game started with two Heisman Trophy contender quarterbacks. It ended with one. Playing in one of the loudest stadiums in the country, Winston was unfazed, going 22 for 34 for Florida State (6-0, 4-0). His first throw was a 22-yard touchdown to Kelvin Benjamin, and he scrambled for a 4-yard touchdown that made it 41-7 with 4:04 left in the third quarter. They took advantage of our mistakes, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. They might be the best team in the country. Tajh Boyd threw two interceptions for Clemson, and his first-quarter fumble was returned 37 yards for touchdown by Mario Edwards. Clemson (6-1, 4-1) turned it over a season-high four times, the first one on the first play from scrimmage. We know were better than how we played, but nobody cares about that, Swinney said. Rashad Greene caught eight passes for 146 yards and two scores, including a 72-yard sprint that made it 24-7 Florida State in the second quarter. The Seminoles broke a five-game losing streak at Memorial Stadium, scored more points than any opponent ever has in Death Valley and gave fourth-year coach Jimbo Fisher his biggest victory since taking over for Bobby Bowden. Florida State tight end Nick OLeary punctuated the beatdown in the third quarter, running over Clemsons Travis Blanks as he tried to make a tackle. Seminoles by a knockout. OLeary finished with five catches for 161 yards. Not long after Clemson made its grand entrance, sprinting past Howards Rock and down the hill onto the field, orange balloons filling the sky above Memorial Stadium, Florida State took control. On the first play from scrimmage Telvin Smith stripped Stanton Seckinger and Terrence Brooks recovered for the Seminoles at the Clemson 34. Two plays later, Winston lofted deep down the sideline to the 6-foot-5 Benjamin, who went up high for the perfectly thrown ball and landed with it inside the pylon. Winston has been even better than advertised in his first season as a starter, hard to believe considering the hype. But this opponent and this setting represented by far the biggest challenge of his young career. Turns out, it was just another showcase game. Lamarcus Joyner forced Clemson turnover No. 2, coming free on a backside blitz and knocking the ball free from Boyd. Edwards scooped and scored. It was 17-0 with 3:07 left in the first quarter and Death Valley suddenly didnt seem so daunting. Boyd hit Sammy Watkins with a 3-yard touchdown pass to trim the lead to 10 late in the first quarter. But the Tigers couldnt take advantage of good field position in the second quarter before Winston and his talented receivers struck again. Seminoles crush Tigers, 51-14 N ICK O L EARY FSU came off a bye week and rose to No. 5 in the AP poll prior to traveling to Death Valley to battle third-ranked Clemson QUOTABLE I hope hes all right.

OCT. 5: FLORIDA STATE 63, By JASON SHOOT 747-5069 | @PCNHJasonShoot jshoot@pcnh.com TALLAHASSEE Jameis Winston made the extraordinary seem routine and the routine seem extraordinary. Winston passed for 393 yards and five touchdowns and the eighth-ranked Seminoles silenced No. 25 Marylands offense in a 63-0 demolition of the Terrapins in an Atlantic Coast Conference game at Doak Campbell Stadium. FSU (5-0, 3-0 ACC) now will enjoy a bye week in advance of its highly anticipated showdown with Clemson at Death Valley on Oct. 19. The two unbeaten teams are tied for first place in the ACCs Atlantic Division. Winston, a redshirt freshman who completed 23 of 32 passes, capped five straight drives with a touchdown pass to lead the Seminole rout. He guided FSU on five scoring drives comprising seven plays or more, and he rarely looked rattled against a Maryland team that came into the game boasting the nations thirdranked scoring defense. Winstons consistency was noteworthy, and he had plenty of moments to shine individually. Late in the third quarter he appeared to be sacked in the backfield. Winston somehow shook off the would-be tackler, then squared up his shoulders and delivered a 21-yard strike to tight end Nick OLeary in the end zone for his fourth TD pass of the day and a 42-0 lead. I can actually tell you that I held the ball too long, Winston said. I just tried to get it to the open guy. Kelvin Benjamin and OLeary each reeled in a pair of touchdown passes and Karlos Williams added two rushing touchdowns for the Seminoles, who scored on seven straight possessions in one stretch. FSU piled up 614 yards of offense against Maryland, which entered the game allowing an average of 263 yards per game, the second-best mark in the ACC. The Terrapins had allowed four touchdowns in their first four games. FSU surpassed that total by the midway point of the third quarter. Winston guided FSU down the field on a 10-play, 77-yard drive on its first possession, and Williams plunged into the end zone on a 1-yard run for a 7-0 lead with just over 8 minutes left in the first quarter. Devonta Freeman scored on a 5-yard run with 6 minutes remaining in the second quarter for a 14-0 advantage. Terrapins starting quarterback C.J. Brown was knocked out of the game on Marylands ensuing series. FSU defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel planted a shoulder in Browns sternum as Brown released the ball on a pass. Brown remained on the ground for several minutes and walked back to the locker room immediately after he was able to stand. Maryland officials said Brown was Winston shines against Maryland FSU was No. 8 in the AP poll for the third straight week and faced its rst ranked opponent in No. 25 Maryland in Tallahassee N O C ONTE S T The battle of Top 25 teams turned into a laugher with the Seminoles scoring 42 points in the second half in tying a school record for the most lopsided defeat of a ranked opponent. Maryland could get little going, nishing with only seven rst downs after losing starting quarterback C.J. Brown to a concussion in the second quarter. What was FSUs stiffest challenge on paper to date turned out to be anything but on the eld. FS U K EY STAT S Jameis Winston had career-highs with 393 yards and ve touchdowns, with four of those coming in the second half. Kenny Shaw had five catches for 96 yards and a touchdown.

In Holmes County, all grades remained consistent except for Ponce de Leon High School, which elevated from a D school to a C school. Weve improved by 250 points from the previous year, but we still have a long way to go, said Ponce de Leon High School Principal Buddy Brown. In student performance, weve seen an increase from 22 percent to almost 60 percent, but what some fail to realize is that 70 percent or more of our students are below the poverty level. Our economy is a prime example as we are trying to get recognized as an area of economic concern. Brown said school administrators are in the process of applying for a grant for additional funding. This funding is for remedial education during the summer, projectors, computers and any additional equipment required to continue improvements, he said. He said because of this grade increase, the school would receive A+ Recognition funding, which will be dispersed among the teachers to further their goals of increasing education standards. My hopes are that next year we will be a B school, Brown said. We arent looking for a tremendous grade increase that would inevitably decline the next year. Were looking for steady improvement that will be maintained long term. Ponce de Leon High School received a C grade in 2011. Poplar Springs High School maintained its C grade from the previous year, which was maintained from the year before for a three-year streak. Bethlehem High School maintained its C grade from the last year, which was a decline from a B in 2011. Holmes County High School maintained its B grade from the previous year, which was an increase from a C in 2011. I was pleased that two schools improved this year and the other ve schools maintained their grade from last year, Superintendent Eddie Dixon said. We certainly have room for improvement. I look forward to better results this year. ESTO from page A1Council Member Teresa Harrison said there were those on her street who continually use reworks long into the evening. After much discussion, the council agreed on the hours of 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. for quiet hours for the Town of Esto. Goodman agreed to rewrite the ordinance and present it before the council at their next meeting. Returning council members Teresa Harrison, Jeff Carnley and Danny Powell were sworn in, and the council approved of Powell remaining as chairman and Darlene Madden remaining as vice chairman. The council also approved of reinstating Tom Murphy as re chief for another year.

Ron Mosley, director of regional transport service for Sacred Heart Health System, talked about AIRHeart and gave a tour of the helicopter. The AIRHeart Service went into operation on Nov. 1, 2001, in Walton County, Mosley said. In 2003, they asked the question, where else in the state of Florida was a helicopter needed? And it was in this area of Marianna and Bonifay, one of the only areas in the state of Florida that wasnt serviced by a helicopter. Not so much because of a business decision, Sacred Heart of Pensacola said, Lets put one in Marianna. That helicopter service started in November 2003, he said. When I came in to that service in 2003 I asked them, Why? Why a business in Marianna? Mosley said. The answer I got from Sacred Heart was that It was the right thing to do. I have never, ever forgotten that. He said they transport an average of 900 patients per year between the aircraft in Crestview and the aircraft in Marianna. Sixty percent of those calls are scene calls and 40 percent from inner facility, which is from smaller hospitals to hospitals that specialize in specic areas such as burns and trauma. We transport as far as Atlanta, Ga.; Birmingham, Ala.; Augusta, Ga., for burns; and Gainesville, Mosley said. The aircraft is actually owned by Air Methods. They bought the program out in 2007 as a business decision, and it has worked out very well. The reason why I said that is because spare parts are readily available because they are the largest provider of helicopters; they actually have more helicopters than the Coast Guard. He said Air Methods is a company that is easy to work with, and they always have local representation. You might nd this funny, but in this area, during this time of year, it is mostly medical calls, people with the u or pneumonia, and during the summer time its trauma, Mosley said. He said if anyone didnt believe Interstate 10 was a mass producer of trauma patients, then he would show them statistics that would prove otherwise. Ive never gured out how someone could get on the interstate the wrong way, and Im sure the people who run into them cant gure it out either, Mosley said. In the summer theres drownings, and the hotter it gets, theres more shootings, stabbings and ghts; in the winter, colds and heart attacks. We get a lot of visitors from up north, and I dont know what it is about the South, but they decide to come down here and have a heart attack or stroke. Soon Crestview will have new, larger aircraft. We actually have to turn some calls down due to weight restrictions. It seems we love biscuits, and it creates a problem for the helicopter trying to transport them, Mosley said. We do have a new aircraft coming in that should be here in June, and there will virtually be no weight limit for the new helicopter. This also will help when family requests to ride with the patient. There will be family members that want to ride with a patient, and you see that a lot with children being transported, Mosley said. Sometimes when a parent is too distraught, we can not allow them to ride for the safety of those on board because they might hinder the pilot. He said the helicopter is usually requested by the hospital or EMS and is often put on standby. This is where they prep the helicopter and y out to the location just in case they are needed and they dont lose time trying to decide, Mosley said. Its better to be there and not needed than to be needed and not there. After Mosley was done speaking, members and visitors of the club took a tour of the AIRHeart helicopter and talked with the visiting pilots.Holmes County high school grades stay steady or improve Cecilia ECILIA SPea EA Rs S | The Times-AdvertiserRon Mosley, director of Regional Transport Services with Sacred Heart Health System, was guest speaker at Bonifay Kiwanis Club to talk about Sacred Heart Hospitals helicopter emergency transport, AIRHeart, which included a tour for all participants. ON THE WEBFor more information on AIRHeart, visit www. sacred-heart.org/ airheart.Sacred Heart helicopter lands for Kiwanis Club Bowen said they were requesting to build an 18by-25-foot permanent brick structure where the shed is currently located and that they would supply the funds to do so. After much discussion, City Attorney Lucas Taylor advised that he look further into the matter and said Bowen and Swartz should present their request before the Holmes County District School Board before proceeding. The school board approved of allowing the team to build the structure during their regular meeting on Dec. 17. Bowen assured them that being on the citys property, the structure would belong to the city. I felt that it would be appropriate for them to get permission from both the City of Bonifay and the Holmes County District School Board before continuing, said Taylor, who also serves as the school boards attorney. The council decided to table the request for further review after much discussion. Mayor Lawrence Cloud suggested they use the building used by the high school football team. Bowen replied that their equipment is numerous and increasing with every season and would take a lot of space away from the high school football team. Im just not sure about building a permanent structure, Council Member Richard Woodham said. The other one was mobile in case it had to be moved. The council approved paying $500 to repair security cameras at the city parks to catch and persecute vandalism. Those cameras have been very helpful in catching these vandals and have paid for themselves, Cloud said. In the time theyve been down, the vandalizing has increased, and it needs to stop. We need to catch these vandals and put a stop to it. The next meeting of the Bonifay City Council is set for 6 p.m. Jan. 27. accordingly. Thats what they call a crime, Goodman said. The next time that happens, you need to call the sheriff. The council approved of replacing the battery backup for the town clerks computer and agreed to look into estimates for buying a new computer. The council also agreed to look into a mice issue at the Recreational Center and to inspect the center before every rental. The next meeting of the Esto Town Council is set for 7 p.m. Feb. 4.Cecilia ECILIA SPea EA Rs S | The Times-AdvertiserReturning Esto Town Council members Teresa Harrison, Jeff Carnley and Danny Powell were sworn in by Town Attorney Jeff Goodman during their regular meeting on Jan. 7.

Due to rst going by to wish Bennie Joe Little a happy 80th birthday, I was a little late for singing Happy Birthday, but Mrs. Jo Pitts was praying the blessing on the family when I sneaked in. A house full of friends and family were enjoying a homecooked meal in the home of the Lewis daughter, Mattie Lou Scarvy. There is some disagreement as to the actual date of Mr. Elijah and his twin brother, Elishas birth. They were born in Houston County, Ala., and their mother died when they were quite small, so they never knew until they were old enough to go on Social Security that there was a discrepancy in their birth dates. However, the census shows that Elijah was born on Jan. 7, 1914 and his brother Elisha on Jan. 7, 1915. As a result, Mr. Elisha who lives north of Birmingham and is unable to travel will have his 100th birthday celebration next year. I can imagine how the midwife who delivered the twin boys might have written the date down wrong on one of the birth certi cates. Mr. Elijah has lived most of his adult life in Holmes County where he and Mrs. Lizzie reared their four daughters and two sons Daisy Swearingen, a retired science teacher, Mattie Lou Scarvy, Naomi Corn, and Mary Callie, who died in a car crash on March 29, 1971, while attending college at Troy University. Their two sons are Albert Elijah Lewis who works for Florida Department of Transportation in Chipley and James Lewis who manages Discount Auto Parts in North Bonifay. In his early years, Mr. Elijah joined the Civilian Conservation Corps and worked in Oregon. But he was not selected to serve in the military during World War II when most of his contemporaries did. He is in reasonably good health and lives at home with Mrs. Lewis. His walking ability is limited, but that is his biggest complaint. He hears fairly well, takes little medications, has a good appetite, and his mind is sharp. Friend Glen George came by to wish him Happy Birthday. Mr. George said, I just want to see a 100-year-old man. I have never seen one. Mr. Lewis replied, I get better looking every day. He really does look well with a ready smile for all. Through his working career he farmed and did carpentry work. Music has also been a part of his life. Both he and his brother play instruments. Elijah played the ddle and Elisha played the guitar. Together they played for dances in their younger Janice Locke Hewett retired from Peoples South Bank, Bonifay Branch, on Dec. 31 after 38 years experience of working in the banking industry. A formal reception was held at 2 p.m. in the bank lobby with executives from surrounding PeoplesSouth Banks. Also in attendance were a host of co workers from banks in the group as well as those Janice had worked along with throughout her long experience. Included in that number were retired employees from competitive banks whom the honoree had become close friends with. In early 1975, and with no prior working experience in banking, Janice applied for employment and was hired by Bank of Washington County, who had announced intention to open a bank in Chipley. Bank of Washington County opened on May 22, 1975, however, I, along with a number of others, was hired earlier in the year and completed extensive training before the bank actually opened, explained Janice. Included in that training was an in-depth indoctrination in the legal aspects of the banking business and the necessity for always conforming with the laws in place governing the complete gamut of the banking industry. Kenneth Jennings was hired as president and CEO and Nolan Treglown was given the position of vice president and cashier. Both had prior banking backgrounds and came to Chipley expressly to assume these new positions. Velma Collins, a Chipley resident, was named Secretary to the Bank. Other staff included Carol Morris, Doris Obert, Renee Wilson and Janice. The original Board of Directors of Bank of Washington County were Dr. James B. Craven, Bill Webb, Griff Godfrey, C. J. Porter, Rex T. Yates, T. Gerald Holley, Bill Craven, Hubert Cope and Bill Grant, a Madison County, Fla., former U.S. Congressman, whose district included Washington County. Kenneth Jennings, as president, was also a member of the board of directors. We continued to operate with some of these employees until the late 1970s. At that time, Bill Norris came to the bank as CEO and Bruce Rowan was placed in the position of vice president, remembers Mrs. Hewett. Janice continues with her work history: During my employment in Chipley, I was promoted from head teller to vice president. Then in 1976, I was assigned to Vernon to open a branch bank. Joining with me in that venture was employee, Carolyn Simmons. Carolyn and I worked together for several years. Janice also reports: In the late 1970s, I was asked to return to Chipley and promoted to loan of cer and continued in this position until 1989. In the early 1980s, Luckett Collins came to our bank as president Of all the numbers thrown at us over the course of last year, one stands out for me. I hope we can avoid repeating it this year. That number is 12. Its the percentage of Americans in a December Quinnipiac poll who said they trust the government in Washington to do what is right most or all of the time. Its a depressingly small number especially compared to the 41 percent who say they hardly ever trust the government. This meshes with recent polls that echo a bleak truth: trust in government is at historically low levels. Thats not all, though. Americans are feeling vulnerable and highly distrustful of both government and privatesector prying. More worrisome, a few months ago an AP poll found that fewer than a third of Americans trust one another. The polls message is clear: our society is in the midst of a crisis in trust. This might seem like a touchyfeely concern, but its not. Trust is essential to our political system and our way of life. The belief that people and institutions will do what they say they will do is the coin of the realm in our society. It is what allows people to work together in their daily interactions with others and in their communities, legislatures and Congress. Negotiation, compromise, collegiality, and the mechanisms our complex and diverse society depends on are impossible without trust. Trust is one of the medley of virtues that have allowed our institutions to develop and prosper, along with honesty, competence, responsibility, and civility. A breakdown in trust between Congress and the executive branch invariably brings problems: the turmoil of the Vietnam War era, Watergate, IranContra, our current budget travails. A society-wide lack of trust imposes real costs. It makes the drafting of laws and their implementation extremely dif cult: government becomes more expensive because it requires more emphasis on regulations and enforcement. In fact, you could argue that we see all around us the results of our trust de cit. Government dysfunction, an economy performing below its potential, public of cials scandals and misdeeds, trusted institutions willingness to skirt the law and standards of good conduct, our social safety net under attack because people mistrust recipients all of these speak to a society struggling as trust weakens. Yet heres a question. Do the polls match your experience? In my case, they do not. Trust still gures in my dealings with institutions and individuals, most of whom are good people trying to live a decent life and to be helpful to others. They deal with one another honorably and with care. Im convinced that this is because, no matter what the polls say at the moment, the habits instilled by parents, schools, and a vast number of public and private institutions do not just disappear. These habits include the experience of grappling with the challenges that representative democracy throws at us and they serve as a reminder that we need trust in one another to make our national experiment in representative government work. As idealistic or even naive as this may sound, we need to work toward more trust among our people and between people and their government. Some new laws might help, but the challenge is more basic than law can address. Higher standards of conduct at all levels of American life must become the norm. Trust may have weakened, but most of us do not see or experience a corrupt America. Even as we have become a larger, more diverse nation, a sense of community remains crucially important to make this country safe and secure for ourselves and our children. We cannot take for granted our success at self-government over the centuries: the only invisible hand guiding and preserving our institutions is our collective will. Events in recent years have given us plenty of reason to be distrustful. Clearly, healthy skepticism is warranted in the wake of the NSA revelations, the problems with the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, and other evidence of both government and corporate misbehavior. In the end, however, trust but verify is still the golden standard. Our ability to function and move forward as a society rests on trust. Think about it.

PRATTLE from page A4and CEO. states Janice. Shortly after his arrival, we had a buy-out on the stock of the bank and Douglas Freedle became our major stock holder and remained in that capacity until 1989 when SouthTrust Bank bought out Mr. Freedle. Janice Hewetts banking story continues: When SouthTrust purchased Washington County Bank, I was asked to go to Marianna to work at the former First Bank of Marianna which SouthTrust had purchased earlier that year. Also purchased was the former First Bank of Holmes County at the same time of the purchase of the Bank of Washington County. Mrs. Hewetts experience is further outlined: While at SouthTrust, I was over the bookkeeping department and loan operations before being promoted to Compliance Of cer and Community Reinvestment Of cer. I was heading those positions when I retired from SouthTrust Bank in 2000 to accept a job with Rickey Stuckey in Peoples Community Bank in Colquitt, Georgia (the best move in my working career). This operation also owned other banks in Georgia as well as banks in Alabama and Florida. It was from this banking groups Bonifay, Florida Branch Bank that Janice Hewett retired effective Dec. 31, 2013. She has revealed her plans to continue to work part time with the Florida Banks of PeoplesSouth for Mr. Robert Jackson. Janice Locke Hewett was born in 1943 and reared in the Orange Hill Community of Washington County. She attended Chipley High School. Her parents were Charlie Lee Locke and Eunice Corbin Locke. Her oldest sister, Mary Nell, died in 1989. A sister, Shirley Locke Sims, is married to Chuck Sims and resides in Marianna. Her brother, Charley E. Locke and wife, Judy, live in Chipley. Janices paternal grandfather was C. S. Locke. The maternal grandparents were Jule and Nettie Corbin. Janice met and married Ronald Gary Hewett of Bonifay in 1968. His parents were Claude Mason Hewett and Verdie Haddan Hewett. Janice and Gary are members of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church, where his parents also held membership. Gary has a twin brother, Donald Larry Hewett, who resides in Ocala, Fla. An older brother, Preston Hewett, died Dec. 22, 1991 and his only sister, Estelle Hewett Scott, passed away Nov. 28, 2013. Janice and Gary have two sons, Stanley M. Hewett (Jennifer) and Gary S. Hewett (Jackie). Stanley and family live next door to the parents, on Highway 280 and Steve and Jackie reside in Wakula, Fla. Both sons are employed with the Florida Department of Corrections. Their one grandson, 13-year-old Garrett M. Hewett, attends Vernon Middle School. The Prattler recalls many, if not all, of those hired who came to Chipley to work at the Bank of Washington County, as well as live in the area. Luckett Collins, and wife, Delores, mentioned in this story, returned to Chipley several years after his banking experience and continue to live here. Congratulations to another Washington County person, who was privileged to work and serve those who she grew up with, plus many others. Janice, enjoy the retirement you have so justly earned! See you all next week. days. Their late father Dixon Lewis was also a ddle player winning many ddling contest in the Dothan area. Since their advanced age makes traveling dif cult, the twins havent seen each other since several years ago when Mr. Elishas family acquired a motor home and drove him to Bonifay for a visit. Since then he has suffered a stroke and is unable to travel. Mrs. Lizzie visited him when she made her annual trip to Rosene, Ky., for the Bill Monroe Bluegrass Festival. She continues to serve as the honorary fan club chairman for the late Mr. Monroe. Unfortunately this year, she fell sick at the festival and was unable to preside over each evenings program of music at the Monroe Home Place. We have missed the lady in the red dress who always sits behind the players on stage at the festival which we watch segments of on Saturday nights on RFD T.V. It was a pleasure to be among those who celebrated with the Lewis family and a joy to see them both sitting together at the birthday table. (Shell celebrate 96 in April.)

HIGhH SChHOOlL SChHOlLAR Special to Halifax Media GroupBONIFAYONIFAY   Private E2 George Martinez, the son of Mr. Jose Martinez and Mrs. Fe Leonardo, graduated from basic training and then attended advanced initial training and the United States Army Airborne School. After graduating Holmes County High School in June 2013, Martinez successfully completed his Army Basic Training in July at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. Martinez then traveled to Fort Lee, Va., where he graduated from his advanced initial training as a Culinary Specialist in October. He then attended the United States Army Airborne School (class 6-14) on Nov. 18. His class started out with 419 soldiers and on Dec. 6, 2013, he graduated as one of the newest 296 United States Army Paratroopers. Throughout the threeweek course, Martinez was trained on SLT (swing landing training) and PLF (parachute landing falls). He had to pass an Army Physical Fitness Test, have two successful jumps off a 34-foot-tower, and ve successful jumps out of a perfect ying aircraft. One of the ve jumps had to be with combat equipment (rucksack and rie) attached to him. Martinez successfully completed all the requirements and received his jump wings at graduation. 1SG(Ret) Randy Burlew, a Holmes County High School JROTC Instructor and a graduate of the United States Army Jump Master School, had the honors of attending the graduation ceremony and pinning Martinezs wings upon his chest. Martinez was a JROTC cadet at Holmes County H.S. where he was very successful on the rie team. It was an honor to pin such a prestiege medal (airborne wings) on Georges uniform and there was no doubt that George would excel and be an asset to his upcoming airborne unit, Burlew said. Martinez stated that he wanted to pass on to all students that if they planned on joining the military, they should do their best in school and maintain a good attitude.

The Bonifay Garden Club in conjunction with the Holmes County division of the Florida Forest Service will be holding a Smokey Bear Poster Contest on Feb. 17, where rst through fth grade students are requested to create their own drawings of Smokey Bear practicing re prevention with a grand prize of a free round-trip ight for four to Washington, D.C. and as a prize to the rst place National winner from each grade level will receive a $100 US savings bond. Following the Smokey Bear Contest Presentation an Arbor Day celebration will be held at Bonifay Elementary School in the morning by planting a Buttery Garden. After Bonifay Elementary School the Bonifay Garden Club and Forest Service will continue to Ponce de Leon Elementary School to plant more trees. At 8 a.m. on Arbor Day, Bonifay Elementary School will share with us a planting ceremony for a buttery garden, said Senior Forester John Polak of the Holmes County Division of the Florida Forest Service. Holes will be dug and the children will place their potted plants in. The importance is to expose children to nature and create a desire or a want to learn. He said he hopes that encouraging children to participate in such events will help them grow curiosity in nature. We want to instill in them a long term curiosity through child development, said Polak. Children are growing to be less of a spectator and more actively involved through our programs. If you give kids seeds and never let them plant it then they dont get that sense of empowerment. His hopes are to build up the program so that the children are not only planting their own trees but are delegating where trees are needed to be planted throughout the county and distributing them as needed. This sharing of nature, I think, will have a huge impact on the children and develop a real community involvement through their eyes instead of my own, said Polak. Arbor Day will be very helpful in aiding these children into maturation. Both events will be very powerful. The buttery garden alone would have profound effects, he said. The buttery garden is a beautiful concept, said Polak. Im so happy that Adonna decided on a buttery deal. Its not just about managing a wildlife habitation but its learning about diversity. The buttery garden also contributes to Arbor Day, he said. The buttery species are chosen pollinators to help owers at different times of the year, said Polak. This is a delicate balance that requires a diverse population to maintain balance and this is what were hoping to get children actively involved in and hopefully retain into adulthood. For Washington County, John Foster of Foster Folly Nursery invited the community to the Washington County Emergency Management Ofce for an Arbor Day observance at 10 a.m. on Jan. 17. In Florida, Arbor Day is celebrated on Jan. 17, and the Wausau Garden Club is going to be planting a tree at the EOC in honor of the citys former clerk, Margaret Riley, Foster said. According to the Florida Forest Service, did you know: 1. Floridas Arbor Day is held on the third Friday in January, which this year was January 17. 2. National Arbor Day is held on the last Friday in April, which this year is April. 3. Arbor originated in Nebraska by J. Sterling Morton who planted trees on open land for windbreaks. In 1872, the rst Arbor Day event was declared in Nebraska. 4. Florida celebrated their rst Arbor Day in DeFuniak Springs in 1885. 5. Our state tree is the Cabbage Palm, aka the Sabal palmetto and is not actually a tree, it is a woody stemmed grass. According to the Florida Forest Service, planting trees in Urban and community settings has multiple benets, such as shade for climate modication, wildlife habitats, clean air, soil and water conservation, energy conservation, carbon sequestration, pollution and noise reduction, hurricane and heavy wind damage reduction, increased property value and increased tourist attraction due to beautication. For more information on Arbor Day you can visit the Arbor Day Foundations website at www.arborday.org.

Faith EVENTS Section APage 8 Wednesday, January 15, 2014www.bonifaynow.com | www.chipleypaper.comMemory is a beautiful thing, that is, when it is working. I must confess there are many times in which my memory is on some kind of a vacation. What I want to know is simply this, how do you know you have forgotten something if you have forgotten it? I do many things I cannot remember exactly why I do them. Behind everything I do is a reason for why I do it or those things that I do not do. I must confess I am quite a reasonable person along this line. Without memory, we can take many things for granted. We go through motions we do not know why we are going through them, we just go through them. Everybody says that when you get older your memory rather takes a backseat. That may be the case with me, I am not quite sure. I cannot remember. I must confess it is a great asset at times to have a memory failure. For instance, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage accosts me and says, Did you remember...? She may have sent me to the grocery store to fetch something or she may have sent me, God forbid, to the mall to pick up something she ordered online. When she asked this question, I always respond by saying, I forgot, you know my memory is not what it used to be. It is an easy way to slither out of something I have forgotten to do. The older I get the more plausible this excuse is, I just cannot remember why. However, on those occasions when she is a little more exasperated than others at me she will say, Your memory never was what it used to be! What that means exactly I do not know. She probably told me sometime in the past, but right now, I simply cannot recall. I am perfectly happy just forgetting that for the time. Why is it I can remember things I do not want to remember and I cannot remember the things that I need to remember? For instance, I can remember the year my wife was born, but I can never recall the month or the day. As a good husband, I should reverse that, not remember the year and positively remember the month and day. Why is it when my wife is giving me a piece of her mind, all I can remember at the time is a funny incident that happened to me earlier that morning? Smiling at a time like that is not advantageous to a happy life of the husband. When she asks, What is so funny? I cannot tell her I was not listening to her but thinking about something else. My memory was jogged earlier this week when a certain incident happened at the Post Office. Anybody who knows me knows that I am not in any way shape or form a hugger. I am a firm believer in what the Bible says, the right hands of fellowship (Galatians 2:9). I am vigorous in this handshaking ceremony. That is about as far as it goes. I had quite forgotten my position along this line, or rather; I should say why I came to this position. Standing in a very long line at the post office at which time I was in somewhat of a hurry to get through a lady walked in. She looked at me and says, Oh, its so nice to see you. I havent seen you for a long time. Then she caught me off guard and gave me a hug. I did not know who this woman was; I could not remember ever seeing her before. With the way my memory is these days, I pretended as if she was a long-lost friend of mine. She chatted about stuff that really did not make any sense to me at the time. I smiled and nodded my head and chatted away to her about things I am sure did not mean anything to her. I was not really paying attention and as the line moved forward, something dawned on me. You know how it is when all of a sudden something hits you. Your vacationing memory comes home and unpacks. Well, that happened to me standing there in line. By the time I had figured out what had happened, it was too late to do anything about it. When she hugged me, she stepped in front of me and therefore was ahead of me in line. I had one of those aha moments but there was nothing I could do about it at the time. I had to swallow my pride, display a contagious smile across my face and take it like a man. A man who has been outwitted by some lady he had no idea who she was. I now remember why I do not do any hugging. I know all hugs are not equal but with the memory I have I do not remember the difference and I am not taking any more chances. Driving home from the Post Office, I remembered the wise words of King Solomon. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9). If I could just remember that, I certainly would be okay. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The weight of the ice forming on the small tree broke several branches, causing a mound of small formations to collect around the base of the tree.By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com Even with the record cold that hit the Panhandle on Monday and Tuesday that had schools canceled in both Holmes and Washington Counties, there were very few casualties and it was all due to early preparation. In all we had about 20 residents who needed their water cut off due to busted lines because of the freeze, said City of Bonifay Public Works Supervisor Jack Marell. There were no major problems with the city, just a few small pipes needing replacing. The reason why we did so well is because we prepared a few days in advance with heaters and lights for all the areas we foreseen to might have issues. Chipley City Administrator Dan Miner said that the city had faired well after the big freeze. There were some residents needing their water turned off due to frozen and broken pipes, said Miner. We faired very well.Baby, its cold outside
