Weve been having issues with unsightly and unkempt sites, said Commissioner Bill Parish. Trash is being built up and scattered. Some locations just arent kept well. Chair Monty Merchant also added that anyone without the proper insurance should have their franchise agreement pulled immediately. Once again, this is yet another issue that I brought up the last time these franchise agreements were discussed, said Commissioner Kenneth Williams. We need to quit kicking this can down the road. Merchant assured Williams that this would be the last time these matters would be discussed. Well, the can has been picked up and no further down the road will it go, said Merchant. Board agreed to have County Attorney Jeff Goodman put in the contract that any violations could lead to their franchise agreement to be pulled. Board was informed that Roger Brooks, Director of the Holmes County Building Department would be out for a few weeks due to health issues and Board approved allowing his secretary serve as a substitute and that a current secretary for the board will serve as a substitute for the secretary. Board approved of the Letter of Resignation by their Director of Special Projects with a vote of 4 to 1, with Williams voting no. Board also approved of adver-Council apologizes to grieving citizenBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com CARYVILLE Caryville Town Council offered its sincerest of apologies to a still grieving family member during their regular meeting held on Jan. 14. Angel Williams, sister to the victim of a tragic murder-suicide almost a year ago, came before the council upset because council member Jim Taylor had listed her sister as one of the ones who had not paid for their burial at Caryville Cemetery. Id like to clear the record that the bill was never placed on my water bill because we paid for the burial six days after the funeral, and my brother-in-law was cremated, not buried, Williams said. Now you say that I stole a plot when all you had to do to con rm was to look in the records, because the receipt was there. Everyone knows about this situation, and it was a cruel thing to do. Attorney Lyndia Spears there might have been a mistake, but it was made through the town. I apologize from the depths of my heart, Taylor said. I was led to believe that it wasnt paid, and I hadnt meant for you to be singled out. I was only trying to bring up an ongoing issue of people going there and not paying. It was a mistake. I apologize with the deepest of sincerity; I shouldnt have said anything. Williams did acknowledge the town did allow the family to bury her sister before payment, and they only charged her the old fee, as the incident happened just before the rates increased Feeding hungry children 1 backpack at a timeBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY MaryNell Grif n and Cheryl Miller of Backpack for Kids of Jackson County were the guest speakers at Bonifay Kiwanis Clubs Jan. 15 meeting, sharing how they started the program that is feeding hungry children one backpack at a time. This program was set up to identify children in Jackson County that, when they are not in school, are without suf cient food, said Grif n. Food is packed every week and goes home with these children by every Friday and also during long Holidays and summer vacations. I hope that what we tell you may help you in Holmes County also. She said that two years ago, around Christmas, she was watching a documentary about homeless children in Florida. I sat there and watched it and cried, she said. They were interviewing children that were talking about being homeless, living in cars, living in boxes and living under interstates but the main thing that came out of that was that when the children were not in school, where they got their free breakfast and their free lunch, they were not getting sufcient food. That really, really touched my heart. She felt a need to do something but then she found herself putting it off continuously. I could not comprehend that it was happening in our country let alone our state and then I began to wonder if it was happening in our county, she said. I kept thinking about if these children dont have suf cient food in the evening or suf cient food during the weekend, what will they do for two weeks when theyre out BHS HomecomingCECILIA SPEARS | Times-AdvertiserBethlehem High School celebrated their Homecoming on Jan. 18 with friends, family and classmates.

LocalA2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, January 22, 2014tising for the position for Director of Special Projects for a week in house. Board approved of purchasing three, six by 30 foot culverts for County Road 65 in the amount of $12,091.50. Its an expensive x but its what weve got to have, said Williams. Board approved appointing Commissioner David Whitaker to represent the Board on the Tri-County Community Board. Board approved of the Holmes County Recycling Center advertising for a full-time position as well as increase the rate of pay to $11.03 per hour, with a vote of 4 to 1, with Merchant voting no. Its going well, but weve seen it when it was not going well, said Merchant. Will you prefer cutting pay or letting people go? Manager Ann Payne said she preferred letting people go to cutting pay. Board approved of Goodmans drafted Limited Right of Entry agreement for hunters wanting to cross onto county property to retrieve game. Its my recommendation that anyone who wants to come onto our property to retrieve game should sign this rst, said Goodman. This is a waiver for them and it covers the county. Board approved of Goodmans drafted Farmers Market Lease agreement for renting out the open market near the Holmes County Agricultural Center. Its a 30-day lease with the ability to expand monthto-month with a $500 security deposit, with rent set at $400 a month and a late fee for each day past deadline, said Goodman. Goodman informed the Board that the resolution for the Road Name Change Requirements would be ready to be presented on the agenda of the next meeting. My concern lies with the economically disadvantaged, said Parish. If someone manages to meet the requirements with 80 percent of landowners agreeing and 20 percent disagreeing, which doesnt include renters, then its possible that the economically disadvantaged will incur charges that are associated with address changes. Goodman assured him that the process of a road name change would still be held as any other change in the county, which would involve two public hearings before the nal vote. Essentially it comes down to the Board as to whether or not they approve of the name change, said Goodman. Under Florida statute the board of county commissioners can change a road name when ever and where ever they want. Board approved of Consent Items, which included the minutes for Workshop and Regular session on Dec. 10 and Special Session on Dec. 30; Federally-Funded Subgrant Agreement for a courthouse generator for $38,175 with a $9,135 grant match; lands available for taxes; SHIP release of lien; EMS Resolution County Awards Grant; Arnold Lumber quote; and Application for Disaster Assistance Local Match Reduction or Waiver and Payment Defferal for Public Assistance. The next meeting is set for 6 p.m. on Jan. 28. by twice the amount. The council approved of River Swamp Hunting Clubs request to expand their hunting lease with the town by 50 acres. After much discussion about expanding the hunting clubs hunting lease for a longer period of time, the hunting club agreed and the council approved to increase their cost per acre from $5 to $6 and start a new contract in June that included the new property and extend the lease by ve years. Council member Millard French inquired about renovating and expanding the Caryville Flea Market, and Chairman Henry Chambers informed him the main priority at the moment was repairing the roof of the Caryville Civic Center. After much discussion, the council approved of French acquiring quotes on costs to place a tin roof on the civic center and bringing them back at the next council meeting. The council also approved of Fire Chief Gene Forehand acquiring quotes on costs to install two new stalls at the Caryville Flea Market and having the quotes ready for review by the next council meeting. After reviewing another cellphone bill over the amount of $300, the council approved that if the contracts time had expired then to cancel the existing contract and go to Straight Talk for less than $50 per month. The next meeting of the Caryville City Council is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Feb. 11 at the Caryville Town Hall. and soreness aches FloridaSmallBusiness DevelopmentCenterLearnhowour300plusyearsofindustry experiencecanbenetyourbusiness.IntheAdvancedTechnologyCenter,Suite107 Visitnorthoridabiz.com orcall850.747.3204 THEMEN'SROOM BARBERSHOPNOWOPEN!(FormerlyShelly'sClipJoint)1605Hwy90.PoncedeLeon,FL32455 OwnerPH#218-434-0609 SUPERGAMESPECIALS!

So, the Lord dealt with me really hard on this and He kept knocking me on the head and everyday I was upset and thinking about it. She said she nally took action by calling summer schools, asking if there were children in need of food and then nally working with the county school board to establish a program. First we needed to identify those children in need, said Grifn. We eventually found out that in order to nd these children we had to work through the school system. We started rst with servicing 40 children and now were up to 206 children. She said at rst they would ll backpacks with food and allow the children to pick them up from the front ofce throughout the week and then after the backpacks were being identied by other children as those who were taking food home they stopped using backpacks and started using reusable bags so that the children could use their own backpacks to transport food home. She said they have received quite a bit of support from the community and continue to receive support.

When the Leonard and Micki Balaban family moved to Bonifay in 1952 to operate a dairy and raise Black Angus cows, they were an anomaly to those of us who came to know them. They were probably the rst Jewish family to reside here since Joe Scheinburg ran a department store on Waukesha Street in Bonifay from the late 1930s through the 50s. Actually, Mr. Scheinburg had no family that we knew of, but the Balabans started their family here. They came to Holmes County and bought property on Highway 173 that contained a big house that once housed a prison camp. Their oldest son, Mike, was born the year they came to Bonifay. He is the same age as our oldest child, Hiram, and that was my main contact with the Balaban family. Then, Steven and Rachel came along, and Rachel was the same age as our daughter, Cindy. Mike and Hiram often played together as did Cindy and Rachel. Then when Hiram was in fourth grade, he was struck by a motorbike passing the stopped school bus as he was crossing the road to get home. During his six weeks con ned to a wheel chair at home, Micki Balaban, who was teaching at Bethlehem, became his homebound teacher and stopped by several times a week to check his progress. Miss Mary Coleman, his regular teacher at BES, faithfully brought his assignments to him so that he never got behind in his studies. The death of Leonard Balaban came to the newspaper as a news release, and Mr. Saylor assigned it to me for my Happy Corner, as he as a newcomer wasnt sure about Mr. Balabans connection here. I am sure that a lot of people will remember the Balabans as he was a total novice at farming, but he gave it his all, taking courses in animal science at the University of Florida. He made numerous friends through the Washington-Holmes Cattlemans Association. They were involved in other community activities. Micki was a member of Bonifay Book Club, and Leonard served on the board of directors of the newly chartered Holmes County Fair Association. Coming from a movie industry family, Balaban was keenly interested in music and theater, and that led to other friendships. His father, Barney Balaban, and his uncle, A.J. Balaban, founded the Chicago Theater Company, Balaban and Katz, which owned Chicago Theater, as well as Uptown Theaters. Barney Balaban served as president of Paramount Studios from 1936-964. Lenny, or Red as he was often called, was enamored with Dixieland Jazz, and growing up in New York, as a teenager he would get chased away from Eddie Condons night club because he was underage. But when he met the owner at the stage door, Mr. Condon invited him in, and he became a regular, hanging out with some of the musicians he had admired. Frances Young Hart and her husband became friends with Leonard and Micki. She shared some memories, as did Diane Williams Smith and Wilheminia Wilcox Parish and numerous others. Knowing the Balabans was culturally enriching for Holmes Countians, for our contact with movies and movie stars was at the picture show. When Micki talked about dancing with Van He in or Mike called Ann Margaret a personal friend and his girlfriend, we had no point of reference for such experiences. That the president of Paramount Pictures came to Bonifay to visit his grandchildren was awe inspiring to us natives. Frances said she taught Leonard the chords on a Ukulele. He also went to Chipola Jr. College and took some music classes. From there, he went on to learn the banjo, an instrument prominent in Dixie Land music. Many here in Washington and Holmes counties will remember the Balabans for starting a little theater, The Spanish Trail Playhouse, that ourished for the years they lived in the area. It is good to see that playhouse once again an active community theater. In 1967, the farm in Bonifay was sold, and the Balabans moved back to West Haven, Conn., where Red could pursue his musical passion. After the death of Condon, his wife allowed Balaban to use the name for a new club, which had a 10-year run. After it closed, he continued to play gigs with his band called Balaban and Cats. He also produced CDs Best of Home Cooking and Son of Home Cooking, recordings of his singing and instrumentation. His latest venture was a computer political blog that had quite a following for its shrewd political commentary. Balaban was a graduate of Milford Academy in Milford, Conn., and Brown University, where he met and married Maxine (Micki) Israel his wife of 62 years. Also surviving are son Michael of New York City, son Steven and wife, Kyle, and their children, Max and Bret of San Diego, Calif., and daughter Rachel, husband, John Burnham, and children Isabel, Olivia and Sophia of Middletown, R.I. His surviving sister, Judith, actress and writer, has the distinction of having been a bridesmaid in the wedding of Princess Grace to Prince Rainer. His parents and an older half bother predeceased Leonard Balaban. A memorial for family and close friends was held on Jan. 5, but a more public musical salute will be held on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, at the Neighborhood Music School in New Haven, Conn. Former musician colleagues will perform, and a jam session of Dixieland Jazz will ttingly remember Red Balaban. Our condolences go out to Micki, Mike, Steve and Rachel and the family. The sojourn of their family in our small rural community enlarged our horizons, and we remember them with fondness. We like to think they carried back to the Northeast some Southern culture, such as the taste for turnip greens and baked corn pone.

Faith EVENTSOur founding Fathers loved God and freedom. Thus they wrote and brought to life the greatest Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights ever imagined because it was based on the Bible which taught them that all men were created in the image of God. According to our Declaration of Independence, all men... are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT of happiness. This order is very signi cant as life is the rst God-given right of every human being. If you dont have life, you certainly cannot enjoy liberty or pursue happiness. Because of this great leadership in the beginning, God truly blessed this great land of the free and the brave. But just as other countries that God had blessed so abundantly, the people began to stray, and worship other gods. Even churches which claimed to be Christian began to introduce false gods of prosperity and sel shness to the world, Santa Claus replaced the message of the greatest gift ever given, The Easter bunny and the hunt of colorful eggs replaced the need for a Savior, spooks and treats replaced the truth about Satan and the warning that he is out to destroy everything and everyone through trickery. Men standing in great sanctuaries and coliseums, writing books, receiving applause for their dramatic speaking and writing abilities replaced a focus on the ever reliable Word of God and His Son Who gave His all that all could have eternal life. With the deterioration of the local church and the family, government followed suit and replaced the teaching of a God Who creates all things with the atheistic teaching of evolution. After a couple generations of being taught that there was no God, those children became the decision makers and realized if there was no God, there was no need for prayer in school, which allow respect and commitment to leave the premises, taking with it the regard for life. On Jan. 22, 1973, the Supreme Court accepted what the population had already accepted, that life has no value. Unfortunately, with the Roe v. Wade ruling our God-given right to life in America ended and gave way to our culture of death. More innocent human beings are put to death everyday than those who died in the 9/11 attacks 3,000. Abortion ends the lives of more than 1.2 million children in America every year. Fully 22 percent of all pregnancies end in abortion. The overwhelming majority of those innocent children, who are suppose to be protected by the Constitution, are sacri ced on the alter of convenience. Over 50 MILLION children have been murdered by abortion since that Supreme Court ruling, with the majority of it being paid for with our tax dollars. Even more sad is the fact that we not only pay for these innocent children to be murdered here in America, we also pay for it to happen world wide. With these heart breaking staggering numbers from the Family Research Council, do we have to ask why God has allowed us to have leadership in this country which has led us back into being a slave nation with a national debt which cannot even be conceived in our minds. Why we have a President and Secretary of State who say they are ready to sign agreements with the UN to abolish all land and small gun ownership all over the world, including America. No, there is no reason to ask these questions and many more that could be asked, because we know the answer. As was stated by our current President ve years ago, we are no longer a Christian nation. We have turned our back on the God Who has so richly blessed us in the past, as we honored Him. But today, because of the people we have become, God has allowed us to become no more than a third world country which eats its own. For the last few years we must admit as a nation we have been on life support as a nation, but because of our sins, full Cardiac Arrest will and must take place soon. Yes, there is hope on the horizon for those who will return to worshipping the One true God and His Son, Jesus Christ, as it is evident that Christ is soon coming for His Bride. But until that time, we who know the truth must take a strong stand and proclaim His Word, and the truth about life. The killing of innocent children for the convenience of others is not about politics, its about sel shness and a disregard for life and the Creator of life. It should break your heart that this continues as it does in this land that has been so blessed by God Almighty. Actually it ought to make us sick at our stomach. Morris H Chapman once wrote, It is the duty and privilege of every Christian in the U.S. to re ect Gods will in the civil arena. May God grant us mercy for not doing so in the past, and strength to do so now. If God has allowed you to see the truth of His word, dont stop sharing the truth of His Word, even though it may seem others cant hear, and please dont stop praying for our nation and our leaders and vote accordingly. Display the Choose Life license plate that shows your support for adoption of children rather than murder. Invest your time and money in your local Pregnancy Crisis Center, so others can nd the truth. These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren (Proverbs 6:16-19 NKJV ). These thoughts have been brought to you From the Heart of Tim Hall, timothyjhall.org, Senior Pastor, Gully Springs Baptist Church, P.O. Box 745, 2824 Highway 90 West Bonifay, FL 32425.
