On Aug. 18, 2013, an inmate abruptly attacked Sergeant Stephen Gillman during the noon meal at Holmes Correctional Institution in Bonifay. Of cers White, Fischer, and Smith immediately responded to the assault as they observed Sergeant Gillman slashed in the head and back with a pick-style weapon by the inmate. The of cers subdued the inmate and placed him in restraints. The attack was a gang hit that had been put out on Sergeant Gillman because he identi ed a staff member for supplying tobacco and other contraband items to the inmates at the facility resulting in the arrest of the employee. It is an honor for me to present the Medal of Heroism to these brave of cers, Governor Scott said, Their quick response helped prevent other individuals from getting harmed. Not only did they demonstrate their dedication to service and their commitment to public safety, but also kept their HC Correctional Of cers presented with Medal of Heroism See MEDAL A2 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County Board of County Commissioners revealed the new Holmes County 911 Coordinator to be Clifton McGowan, during their regularly scheduled meeting on March 25. If the name sounds familiar, thats because he was announced as the countys top choice for the Federal Emergency Management Agency Coordinator during the last regularly scheduled meeting; however, after salary negotiations, McGowan turned down the temporary position in favor of a more permanent one, leaving the second runner-up, Wendel Whitehurst, as the favorable candidate for FEMA Coordinator. Whitehurst accepted that position. McGowan was formally voted in as the new 911 Coordinator during a special session held Monday, March 17.

Clark Park in Esto. The reason why we started the Two Toe Tom Festival back up is in memory of all our towns elders, said Event Coordinator and Esto Town Council member Darlene Madden. The elders wanted something for the community to do together, no matter if theyre young, old, individually or as a family. Frances Kirkland was involved with the rst Two Toe Tom Festival held on Sept. 5, 1987 and would later become a chair member of the Two Toe Tom Festival committee. The reason why we started it was because we needed something to bring the community together, for something for both young and old to participate in and enjoy as a community, said Kirkland. It also helped raise money to help repair the senior citizens building. When E.W. Carswell published the history of the Town of Esto and included the legend of Two Toe Tom, we knew we had something unique to our area and special to our community.

Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Michael Crews said, The swift action taken by Ser geant Gillman and Of cers White, Fischer and Smith is a testament to their devotion and shows they acted to come to the aid of one of their own and not give a second thought to their own personal safety. Their seless actions saved the life of their col league and the lives of inmates, said Crews. I applaud the response of these ofcers and ap preciate the Governor for recognizing them with this most-deserved Medal. The Medal of Heroism is given to any law en forcement or correctional ofcer, reghter, emer gency medical technician or paramedic who has dis tinguished himself or her self by risking his or her life deliberately above and beyond the call of duty and must have engaged in haz ardous or perilous activi ties to preserve lives with the knowledge that such activities might result in great personal harm.

As you know for the last six years weve been working hard to improve our water and sewer for the City of Bonifay, spend ing over $10 million in the process, said Cloud. Cloud explained that there was some emergency money coming from a grant where the City of Bonifay was at the top of the list, ranking number one, how ever there is still quite a bit of drainage issues since the last big rain and the city is requesting assistance from the county to clear debris and maintain a portion of ditch outside of the city limits to help with those drainage issues. The Board agreed they are interested in helping, however they must rst consult their engineers to make sure they are able. Holly Holt with the Holmes County Health Department requested assistance in getting a generator for the health department. If theres a disaster we have immunizations that need to stay refriger ated; immunizations that cost a lot of money and are important to the health and well being of our resi dents, said Holt. It would be good to have a back-up generator just incase the power goes out so we dont loose those immunizations or have to go through a hefty ordeal to make sure they remain cool. Board agreed to look into the matter. Herman Knowles, Jr. came before the Board to discuss potholes on Am mons Road. Ive been there for almost ten years, and that road just continues to de teriorate, said Knowles. The city has done their best to patch those holes, but since it is down hill and theres heavy trafc, it doesnt take long for those patches to wear out. The Board agreed to allow one of their engi neers to look at possible solutions. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners is set for 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 8. M c GOWAN from page A1 Another individual vital to the success of the Two Toe Tom Festival was Annie Laura Williams Kidd, said Kirkland. She explained that Kidd was a tireless supporter of the festival and was responsible for most of the community getting involved through her constant community efforts and promotions of the event. I was truly amazed to see how the community came together for a common cause, which was to better the community, said Kirkland. It was a festival created of the community, by the community and for the community. Madden said that it was now up to the present generation to continue the festival because the time of needing the community to pull together and support one another is at hand. Theres a lot of money that goes into producing a festival now a days, said Madden. It is so expensive with all of these extra expenses for advertising and safety requirements, but it is something that this town needs. Weve got something special here, we just need to pull together and make it something great again. This years event will include a car show with a 50/50 drawing, horseshoe tournament, dunking booth, re truck exhibit, cakewalk, face painting, a large variety of vendors and live entertainment from The Springs, Josh Cobb, Graceville High School Show Choir Illusions, Patti Rutland Jazz Dance Center, Final Harvest Gospel Group, Graceville High School Show Choir Prodigy, Big Jimmy and Ron Fench.

It is amazing and an honor to have these men in my boat, deer stand or duck blind, said Sullivan. This gives these guys a chance to really relax and smile and its become something better than I could ever imagine. Its been a blessing. He said his heart is touched by the men and women who sacriced of themselves, guratively and literally, and he wanted to give something back. Soon, he started a 501c3 organiza tion to do just that. Carter Hess served two tours with the 82 nd Airborne before he lost his leg to an IED, improvised explosive device, in June of 2012. In November of last year, my dad said if I wanted to go turkey hunting, Jeep Sullivan was just the guy to see, said Hess. Normally, if you want to go hunting, I imagine you want a guy with a name like Jeep. So, we went turkey hunting with a colonel from the Air Force. He told about their rst day hunting, which no tur keys showed up and on the second day the colonel and Hess were sitting, waiting on a turkey. While we were sitting I decided to take off my pros thetic leg and the colonel watched with wide eyes, said Hess. I told him if I had to shoot the turkey with a gun or bow and arrow or if I have to beat him down with this leg, one way or another a turkey was going to die. Needless to say that really broke the ice. He said after a while a turkey came out, turned a corner and was out of sight. Figuring that for the only turkey to come out that day they were surprised to see a second turkey and this time the colonel didnt hesitate to shoot the turkey. The aim must not have been so good because in stead of hitting the ground the turkey ran around in ve-yard circles with the colonel not far behind him, said Hess. If I ever re member anything it would be the image of the colonel chasing that turkey around in circles. I tell you now, its not about the hunt, its about the memories made, its about a connections and its thanks to Jeep we have that opportunity. Sullivan said as a 501c3 they accept donations. If you have the money and you want to make a dif ference we sure could use it, said Sullivan. Ive seen the faces of the new guys just wanting to connect and I just want to continue connect ing and be there for them to show that civilians care enough about our veterans to do something for them.

The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce un derstands just how much the Northwest Florida Champi onship Rodeo means to this community, said Bulling ton. It is a wonderful fund raiser for the Bonifay Kiwn ais Club that allows them do outstanding work for the children of Holmes County, but it is more than that. The community takes pride of ownership in the Rodeo they come every year, they invite their family and friends to come, they are proud that they are from Bonifay the Home the Northwest Flori da Championship Rodeo. She said as a tribute to the 70th Anniversary they had Melody Bazzle take some rodeo memorabilia plus her own ingenious ide als and some fancy embroi dery work and created a ro deo quilt, which the chamber will rafe off $10 per ticket or 3 for $25. Over the next six months, the Chamber will display the quilt at many of the spon sors and members busi nesses to remind everyone the rodeo is coming to town Oct. 2, 3 and 4.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A3 Wednesday, April 2, 2014 WASHINGTON (AP) As a roller-coaster sign-up sea son winds down, President Barack Obamas health care law has indeed managed to change the country. Americans are unlikely to go back to a time when peo ple with medical problems could be denied coverage. But Obamas overhaul needs major work of its own if it is to go down in history as a legacy achievement like Medicare or Social Security. Major elements of the Affordable Care Act face an uncertain future: As a 6-month-long signup season comes to an end Monday the administra tions next big challenge is to make 2015 open enroll ment more manageable for consumers unaccustomed to dealing with insurance jargon. There also is con cern premiums will rise next year. The new insurance markets created by the law are anything but cus tomer friendly. After the HealthCare.gov website nally got xed, more than 6 million people have man aged to sign up, allowing the exchanges to stay aoat economically. But many consumers have bought pol icies with restricted access to top-tier hospitals and the latest medications. The web site is seeing heavy trafc this weekend, and consum ers may encounter a wait or last-minute glitches. Almost half the states still are opposed to or un decided about the laws expansion of Medicaid, the governments health insur ance program for the poor. As a result, millions of lowincome people who other wise would have been cov ered remain uninsured. This years pitch has been about the carrots in the law: subsidies and guar anteed coverage. But the sticks are just over the horizon: collecting penalties from individuals who remain uninsured and enforcing re quirements that mediumto large-sized employers pro vide affordable coverage. Many basic facts about the ultimate effects of the health insurance program remain unclear. Its not known how many of those who have gotten coverage were previously uninsured the ultimate test of the law. Independent measure ments by Gallup do show fewer uninsured Americans, but such progress hasnt won hearts and minds. The public remains deeply divid ed, with opponents of the law outnumbering supporters. At a recent insurance industry conference, a top administration ofcial ac knowledged the huge job still ahead. The No. 1 thing that probably weve all learned from 2014 is that this is hard work, said Gary Cohen, out going director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, the agency created to carry out the health care law. Its not a one-year project; its a multiyear project ... were asking a lot, frankly, of con sumers, he added. This is new for them. Among those consum ers is Dan Luke of St. Paul, Minn., the owner of a small video production company who had been uninsured since he was turned down for coverage last year be cause of a pre-existing con dition. The condition? Luke was born with one eye due to a birth defect, and he uses a glass eye. For 63 years Ive had one eye, said Luke. They had to dig deep to nd that. Hes happy with the cov erage he and his wife have bought; theyre saving $300 a month on premiums com pared with the last time they had insurance. But he said he had to endure weeks of website run-arounds. There is a lot of bureau cracy involved, said Luke. Its sort of like taxes, lled with loopholes and pitfalls. They should make it easier for people to get insurance and pay for insurance, rather than have to prove so many things and jump through so many hoops. Those comments echo sentiments broadly reect ed in national opinion polls. Most Americans want law makers to x the problems with the health care law, rath er than scrapping it. A new AP-Gfk poll nds that only 13 percent expect the law will be completely repealed. Seventy-two percent say it will be implemented with changes, whether major or minor. Republicans have again made repeal of Obam acare their ofcial battle cry this election season. But even if the GOP wins control of the Senate and Congress were to repeal the law next year, the presi dent would veto it. Oppo nents would then need a difcult two-thirds majority in both chambers to over ride Obamas veto. Its going to depend on the next couple of elec tions whether we stick with the current ACA models, said Brookings Institution health policy expert Mark McClellan, who oversaw the rollout of the last major federal coverage expansion, the Medicare prescription drug benet. We are still a long way from a stable market and from completing implemen tation, he said. But were not going back to people with pre-existing conditions having no good options. The administration will have to get to work quickly on a plan for next year. It is still struggling with such basics as providing con sumers with clear informa tion about the process and their options. Until now, those sign ing up have skewed toward an older crowd. That could lead to higher premiums next year, making the program a harder sell for younger people. Some Democratic law makers who voted for the law are frustrated. Instead of just circling the wagons against all the political arrows that are shot against this plan, we need a little more ac countability, and we need to ensure the next enroll ment period is not handled as poorly as the last one, said Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas. DeAnn Friedholm, health reform team leader for Consumers Union, said her group still supports Obamas overhaul, but with concerns. The jury is out in terms of its long-term success, she said. We still think its better than the old way, which left a lot of people out because they were sick. at Beltone!

Oh, if life were as simple as those crazy commercials. Some truly ridiculous commercials bombard our television airwaves. And why am I only now having this revelation? Perhaps youve known for years that if commercials were generally worth watching, advertisers wouldnt have to pay to be on the air, and we wouldnt avoid them by hitting the remote to switch between The Voice and re-runs of The Fresh Prince. One ad in particular leaves me arguing with the television as if I were watching a Jerry Springer episode, believing my words will magically permeate the screen and help those idiotic guests see the error of their ways. Youve seen it. An attractive woman glides into her living room, twirls around in a pretty dress and asks her husband, What do you think? Apparently overcome by the beauty of his bride, the man reacts as any man would: he suggests a vacation (right...), explaining the credit card reward points theyve earned will pay for everything. We cant, says the wife. The husband, overwhelmed by his wifes loveliness, insists. Oh yes, we can. Then he explains all the wonderful things they can do as a couple with all those points. The scene is complete with visuals of the couple laughing and having all sorts of fun on several outings. The husband is about to be surprised. No, we cant, she says again, with a sly smile, deftly smoothing the sides of her dress. Then, it dawns on him. His well-dressed wife has just spent all their reward points on that one dress. Thats when this little tale strays well away from any reality Ive ever known. The husband just smiles, and the commercial is over. Over, that is except for the speed-talking part of gratuitous disclaimers from the announcer. Who are they kidding? Where is the raging discussion that should logically ensue? I can accept the Snuggle bear caressing his furry little cheek with my linens and complimenting me on how soft they are. Its not even too far-fetched that a bumblebee who sounds suspiciously like Antonio Banderas is concerned about my allergy medication. But a husband having no problem that his wife spent what appears to be their hard-earned points on a dress apparently worth at least the cost of two plane tickets, a boat rental and a night of dancing? Oh, please! Does that company really expect us to buy that in this economy? Wouldnt it make more sense to say, Honey, I paid our health insurance premium with our points or Gas is four dollars a gallon again, so I used our points to ll up both cars? My outrage ebbs when I realize this couple obviously doesnt live in a small Northwest Florida community (well, that and the fact they arent real.) Most ladies here would be more considerate of their spouse, and while we might like nice dresses, most of us prefer our clothes machine washable and commercials more believable. After all, Snuggles the cuddly bear wont magically appear to compliment your laundry if the tags say dry clean only.

A friend and I were getting out of our vehicle about 45 miles north of Panama City, it was about 5:40 a.m. and I wondered if the slightly cooler than normal temperatures and stifferthan-ideal wind would interfere with the rst attempt to lure a gobbler this year. We need this wind to die down, he said. We had everything else we needed decoys, shotguns, camo, netting, mosquito spray, water everything, really, except a doped-up gobbler that would ensure success. We just need Mother Nature to throw us a bone. And she did, for as we walked to the spot I had mentally pondered for a week, the wind disappeared like a child at bath time. We settled in and waited for that most glorious of sounds for a true turkey hunter: the rst gobble of the morning which would, for me, also be the rst gobble of the season. You dont get a gobble every time out, but gobbles rarely translate into taking home a bird. This isnt deer hunting, sitting in a stand on a food plot ush with their favorite foods. You cant hunt turkeys over bait, number one, and hearing a turkey gobble is a long cry from seeing a deer. On my hunting lease we dont allow turkeys to be taken by ri e, it is shotgun only and that means a range of about 45-50 yards. It also means you have to call the gobbler in. And early in the seasons, the hens are pretty cooperative and tend to head toward that rst gobble and offer to work in concert with the gobbler to produce the next generation of turkeys, if you get my drift. So there sits the gobbler in his tree some people dont realize turkeys roost in trees overnight gobbling away and his harem gathers and its a buyers market. We, meanwhile, are a couple of hundred yards away letting out some yelps and hen noises trying to get that gobbler to come on over to us and our decoys. It brought to mind Spring Break and the analogy that our task that morning would be about like standing 100 yards from a stage with Luke Bryan performing and us busting out in song in hopes that some of those ladies would abandon him and head our way. But we know it can be done and my friend went to work on the calling while I took pictures and imagined a giant gobbler behind every sway of a bush in the breeze. We heard that golden sound, in fact we heard at least three and maybe four gobblers talking. And one was moving closer. But, as often happens, the morning fell silent and we had a choice to make: Was it time to get on the move and track those gobblers down or sit tight and see if they showed up? Silence doesnt always mean the gobbler is henned up, or busy with a hen, it sometimes means hes honing in on you. Its early in the season and we were antsy, so we took off. We worked around the fringes of woods, we traipsed through pine straw-covered forest oor between planted pines and we tromped through heavy brush near creeks, trying to nd that gobbler. And we just couldnt pin him down. So we decided to head back to our original spot and work our way in from there, where the going would be easier. As we approached the spot, you can probably guess what we saw: turkeys. They were ying. Away from us. From the very spot our gear still sat. The gobbler that had gone silent had been moving toward us and some hens had shown up and if wed just sat still wed probably have taken him home. And it was a beautiful day that reminded me of two things. Theres a reason they call it hunting, not killing. And sometimes you never catch the things you chase the hardest, but if youll hold still and let them determine their own path, they might come to you on their own. MIKE CAZALAS Between the Cracks Back in November, I wrote a column about our cats weve had through the years. Someone remarked that I certainly knew my cat genealogy. I only mentioned some of the important ones. But I did mention Tebow, the part Siamese bobtailed kitten we acquired in September from Kim Barber. He turned out to be the most memorable one weve ever had. Sadly, on Tuesday of last week, my cuddly, playful, inquisitive, fearless Tebow who thought all dogs as playful as Zelda, my granddaughter Hannahs golden retriever, climbed the fence into the neighbors dog yard and was killed instantly. Jack and I and our four remaining cats are grieving. Casper the white short-haired cat who appeared from nowhere one November several years ago while Jack was cracking pecans was watching the episode. Ever since, weve been letting the kitten Tebow outside some during the day, Casper has kept his eye on him. Unfortunately, he couldnt warn him of the danger he was approaching. Meredith was another Siamese-colored kitten that came to us when Maria was a kitten. My Mexican girls named Maria. They wanted to name her Dolores, as they said she was my favorite of the Carnejo girls, but I told them she had to be named with an M name as she has an M above her eyes. So they happily named her Maria, Dolores middle name. Then when we got Macey, a short-haired tabby Manx who had the M above her eyes, we named her Meredith for my niece, Marias younger sister. Maria turned out to be Jacks cat and Meredith, like Tebow, was mine. Also like Tebow, she loved outside and one morning about 3 a.m. She insisted on going out. When we got up a little later to start on a trip to Punta Gorda, we found her dead on the highway. In my previous article, I didnt mention Peaches, my purebred silver-tipped Persian, which was given to me by Cindys friend, Delberta, who worked with her in the college of journalism at UF. I had several adventures with her. I carried her with me in a big straw handbag. One day, while visiting in Gainesville, I took her in the bag up to the College of Journalism to visit Cindy and Delberta. Since it was a long hallway, I decided Id let her walk. Instead, she, enjoying the freedom from the bag, started running down the long empty hallway. Fortunately, I was able to capture her before the Dean, Cindys boss saw her. Another time, I took her to the beauty shop and let her run around there. However, when I saw Gorgeanne and Evelyn scurrying around as the inspector had arrived unexpectedly, I quickly scooped Peaches up and put her back in her straw bag and casually held it closed. She never made a peep while the inspector was there. Peaches almost never went outside in her 13 years. But once she did, and she climbed a juniper outside the porch and wouldnt come down. I couldnt persuade her, and the tree was too skinny to climb or support a ladder. I was crying to Jack saying, What are we going to do? He said, Im not going to do anything. She can get down the way she got up there. As if Peaches understood what he said, she immediately started backing down the tree trunk. When I had to euthanize her because of blindness and other problems, Nephew Tim took charge of her body for me. Dr. Woodham had given me a tranquilizer for her, which I resisted the temptation to take myself We always had cats and kittens when I was growing up, but the rst very special one I had was a gray Persian, which my Dad brought home from Mrs. John Christos home on Beach Drive in Panama City. She was one of his good peddling customers and was our benefactor in many ways. I dont even recall that kittens name, but that was about the time when DDT was being used for insect control and the kitten became sick and died. We learned rst-hand that DDT was harmful to pets and probably to humans. Over the years, my mother had many cats, but one memorable one was Huss. Shed had her for several years and several litters of kittens. But then one day when she had a new litter, she moved the whole litter down the hill to neighbor, Mrs. Jack Deans. Later, when the kittens were old enough to wean, Huss brought Mama one of her kittens and returned to Mrs. Deans. She never came back home herself. Katie was a small, fullgrown, female, gray shorthair who showed up at the old home place after Mama had died. Daddy was not much of a cat person, but after my sister Minnie took Katie and had her spayed, she became a part of Daddys and his caregiver Nancys household. She lived there as an inside/ outside cat for about ve years, as long as Daddy lived and as long as Nancy stayed on at the house. Then after Nancy moved, she remained on being an inside cat when my sister Muriel and husband Roy visited and outside the rest of the time. Hiram and son Taylor kept food and water supplied. Shed visit their house occasionally, but then one day in the late fall, she appeared at their door, bag and baggage. She was checking herself into the nursing home. She never went outside again, sleeping at Judys head every night. We couldnt calculate how old she was when she died, but we jokingly said that she was Mama reincarnated. All of my sisters and my nieces have their own cat tails. In fact, cat topics comprises a good part of our conversation when we are together. Cats bring us a lot of pleasure, but loving them is like loving our family and friends or other pets. It opens us up to a lot of joy, but it also opens us to sadness as well.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Wednesday, April 2, 2014 By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Whats on your Bucket List? During the March 19 Bonifay Ki wanis meeting, nancial adviser Matthew Wegner explained that good nan cial decisions starts with goals, and some of the most important goals could be found on someones bucket list. Let me explain what its like; its like youre ready for the big game, youve got the tickets, you nally get the family ready and on the road, you get to the parking lot and theres no parking, you nally park and get in the stadium, you grab some snacks at the snack bar, go up the bleachers and nd your seat, Wegner said. Then the game begins, the referee tosses up the ball, your player gabs the ball, dribbles it down the court and as he makes it to the end of the court everyone realizes someone removed the goal the night before. Thats what it is like not to have goals and you need goals because how else are you going to know how to keep score or how to get there if you dont know where it is. He said the main prob lems are most become dis tracted from their goal and the more people become connected the faster they become distracted. Wegner even referred to the concept of good nanc es being Biblical, saying that even though verses, such as Matthew 6:19 and Mark 8:36, state that ones treasures should not be considered on Earth but in Heaven, there was a refer ence in Ecclesiastes 5:1819 about building up ones storehouse. The best nancial advice he ever received, he explained, came from the simple notion of creating a bucket list and after showing a clip from the 2007 comedydrama starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, he explained a bucket list is exactly how it sounds a list of things one wants to accomplish before one kicks the bucket. Make a bucket list, Wegner said. Doing so will help you stay focused on the longer term and keep you from making short term emotion al decisions with your investments. What makes bucket lists so important is it re ally focuses on someones main priorities, keeping an eye on the long-term per spective of a legacy left behind. An announcement was made about the upcoming State Evangelistic Confer ence to be hosted by the First Baptist Church in Bonifay on March 27 and 28, which will be open to all denominations interested in the development and expansion of Evangelism.

By CHRIS OLWELL 747-5079 | @PCNHchriso colwell@pcnh.comP ANAMA CITY A woman arrested in Sun bury, Pa., on suspicion of killing a man she met on Craigslist claimed in an interview with a newspaper reporter to have killed at least 22 people, and left parts of them in Mexico Beach. Miranda Barbour, 19, garnered na tional attention when she told the Daily Item during a jailhouse inter view she was involved in a satanic cult and killed 22 people. In a second in terview, published Saturday on the Daily Items website, she claimed to have worked as a 15-year-old go-go dancer in Panama City and buried human remains in Mexico Beach. The Daily Item reports Barbour mentioned Mexico Beach as one of three cities where she said investigators would nd parts of bodies. There is some there as well, Barbour reportedly said. The report leaves investigators with al most nothing to go on, but law enforcement agencies havent dismissed them. As Maj. Mark Aviles with the Panama City Police Department said, This is a crazy person whos giving out the information, so youve got to take it, but youve got to take it with a grain of salt. Aviles said Panama City police have no record of any contact with Barbour, and he was not aware of any cases that might tie to Barbour. Mexico Beach Police Chief Glenn Norris said Monday he had not heard from authori ties in Pennsylvania, so he planned to reach out to them and nd out what was going on. This is the rst Ive heard about a murder here in Mexico Beach, Norris said. He said there are no unsolved homi cide or suspicious missing person cases that would t with Barbours claims, which he said were vague. Unless I have more to go on Norris said. The Bay County Sheriffs Ofce also is working the case. We have assigned an investigator to look into her claims, spokeswoman Ruth Corley said Monday. Corley said the investigation had not substantiated any of the claims in the Daily Item as of Monday. Panama City Beach police are working with authorities with the Federal Bureau of In vestigation and local law enforcement in Sun bury, PCB Police Chief Drew Whitman said. We do have a missing person from that time frame, so were taking it seriously, Whitman said. PCBPD investigators are tryingto get video footage of the interview to hear ex actly what Barbour said. That would help a lot, Whitman said. Barbour and her husband, 22-year-old Elytte Barbour, are charged with luring 42-year-old Troy LaFerrara to meet them in a shopping center parking lot in November. When LaFerrara got in their car, Elytte Bar bour allegedly strangled him while Miranda Barbour allegedly stabbed him repeatedly. Miranda Barbour told the Daily Item she joined a satanic cult at age 13 in Alaska and began killing people shortly thereafter. She said she lost track of the number of murders she had participated in at 22.

Local A6 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 2, 2014 Ocala Star-Banner The national average for a gallon of regular gasoline inched up 2 cents in the past week. Typical spring factors like renery maintenance, increasing demand and the switch to summer-blend fuel remain part of the story. The most expensive prices in the Southeast are found in Florida, where the average price on Monday was $3.63, 8 cents higher than the national average and 7 cents higher than last week. Florida motorists are seeing the highest gas prices since July, said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. While Florida prices could continue inching up, they are still well below last years peak of $3.88 and not expected to reach $4 a gallon. Gas prices in Florida are increasing more than other states because of supply issues and strong demand. Unlike other states, the majority of Floridas gasoline is delivered by ship instead of pipeline. According to the Energy Information Administration, imports have dramatically declined during recent years, due to renery closures in the Caribbean and limited shipments from reneries in the Gulf of Mexico that would otherwise be able to offset the shortage. Now, anytime gasoline demand spikes, retailers must engage in a bidding war with the New York Harbor for shipments from the Atlantic basin to prevent a shortage. The EIA also states that gasoline consumption in Florida typically peaks in March, when seasonal population is high and Spring Break travelers and baseball fans arrive. This pattern differs from other states, where gasoline consumption typically peaks in July and August and is lowest during the winter months. In Gainesville, the average price per gallon on Monday was $3.63, up 3 cents from last week, according to the website GasBuddy.com In Ocala, the average was $3.63, up from $3.57 last week. The lowest price in Florida was $3.28 in St. Augustine, and the highest was $5.99 in Lake Buena Vista, according to GasBuddy. com T o learn ho w y ou can suppor t our community s univ ersity contact M ar y B eth Lo vingood at (850) 770-2108 or mblo vingood@pc.f su.edu.

BO N I F A Y WOMA N S C LU B | Special to the Times-Advertiser Bonifay Womans Club members Lynn Marshall, Sheri Brooks and Stephanie Brown settle down for a nice game of cards. Floridas average gas price highest in the SoutheastW ASHINGTON (AP) With just hours to spare, Con gress stepped Monday to nalize legislation to pre vent doctors who treat Medicare patients from be ing hit with a 24 percent cut in their payments from the government. The Senates 64-35 vote sends a measure to delay the cuts for a year to Presi dent Barack Obama, who is expected to quickly sign it. The House passed the measure last week. The $21 billion measure would stave off a 24 percent cut in Medicare reimburse ments to doctors for a year and extend dozens of other expiring health care provi sions such as higher pay ment rates for rural hospi tals. The legislation is paid for by cuts to health care providers, but fully half of the cuts wont kick in for 10 years. Its the 17th temporary patch to a broken pay ment formula that dates to 1997 and comes after lawmakers failed to reach a deal on nancing a per manent x. The measure passed the House on Thursday, but only after top leaders in both parties engineered a voice vote when it be came clear they were hav ing difculty mustering the two-thirds vote required to advance it under expedited procedures. Several top Democrats opposed the bill, saying it would take momentum away from the drive to permanently solve the payment formula problem. Theres widespread agreement on biparti san legislation to rede sign the payment formula that would give doctors 0.5 percent annual fee in creases and implement re forms aimed at giving doc tors incentives to provide less costly care. But theres no agreement on how to pay the approximately $140 billion cost. Senate Finance Com mittee Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., promised to keep pressing ahead with a long-term solution, proposing to use savings from the troop drawdown in Afghanistan to pay the cost. Republicans and most budget experts say such savings are phony and are demanding at least some of the money to come from cuts to Obamas Affordable Care Act. Paying for this through (war savings) is the mother of all gimmicks, said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. We just dont have the votes right now to x this problem for good, said Ma jority leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who negotiated the measure with House Speak er John Boehner, R-Ohio. For the millions of elderly Americans and their doc tors this x is good news. It means the promise of acces sible, quality health care to our nations seniors is being honored for another year. The heavily lobbied measure blends $16 billion to address Medicare physi cians payments with about $5 billion more for a variety of other expiring health care provisions. such as higher Medi care payments to rural hospitals and for ambu lance rides in rural areas. Manufacturers of certain drugs to treat kidney dis ease catch a break, as do dialysis providers and the state of California, which receives increases in Medi care physician fees in 14 counties such as San Diego and Sacramento that are designated as rural and whose doctors therefore re ceive lower payments than their urban counterparts. The bill increases spend ing by $17 billion over the next three years, offsetting the cost with cuts to health care providers. The au thors of the bill employed considerable gimmickry to amass the cuts, however, and fully half of them dont appear for 10 years. For instance, the bill claims $5 billion in savings through a timing shift in Medicare cuts in 2024. TALLAHA SS EE (AP) The federal government has dropped the ball for the last 30 or 40 years in its marijuana policy and Flori da is ready to pick it up, Sen. Jeff Clemens said Monday. This 50 and 60s era reefer madness attitude caused us to turn away from a plant as form of medicine and move to these synthetic drugs that are often a lot worse for our bodies, said Clemens, D-Lake Worth. In a panel discussion Monday, Clemens joined Democratic Rep. Katie Ed wards and Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz to pledge a push for passage of so-called Charlottes Web, a nonintoxicating oil extracted from the marijuana plant. Gaetz in particular has been pushing a bill (HB 843) that would ap prove the oil extract, in tear-jerker hearings that have been marked by tes timony from parents of children with intractable epilepsy and have heard of successful treatment via the oil in Colorado, where it is legal. I suspect we are on a cautious walk forward, and this is the rst step, Gaetz said. Lawmakers extol virtues of medical pot

By BRAD MILNER 747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Nick Flairs business cards could read hitter, plain and simple. The Gulf Coast sophomore rarely sees a pitch he cant connect with and he racked up three more hits on Monday, including a three-run home run, in a 95 win over Northwest Florida State at Bill Frazier Field. His homer capped a seven-run third inning to give starter Brendan Leach a cushion on a day when the right-hander didnt have his usual dominant mix on the mound. Flair drove in half of GCs eight runs through the rst three innings. He added a single in the sixth and nished the day with a .426 batting average, seven points higher than when he woke up on Monday. His three hits and an identical number from Dalton Kelley kept GC in a rst-place tie with Chipola in the Panhandle Conference at 6-2 after a fth straight win. Leach has been great all year. This was his rst rough game all year, said Flair of the GC starter, who had six strikeouts and three walks while giving up eight hits in 4 1/3 innings of a no-decision. If he struggles, we struggle. On offense we took it upon ourselves to make things happen. Flairs homer off losing pitcher Brandon Nagem turned a 1-1 tie into a three-run GC lead. Max Bartlett and Dondrayas Harris (Rutherford) had RBIs from the bottom of the lineup and Kelley singled them in when the Commodores batted through the lineup in the third. GC (29-8) held on behind Kelley, who entered for Leach in the fth and tossed 3 1/3 innings of scoreless relief for the win. Kelley yielded a walk and gave up RBIs singles to Danny Blanco and Ryan Fucci to pull NWF State (22-11, 4-4) within 8-5. Blanco also had a solo homer in the fourth and he and Fucci nished with two hits apiece. Each of the ve runs were charged to Leach, who gave up six earned runs in his previous 47 1/3 innings. Kelley (1-0) had ve strikeouts and one walk and Brandon Pergantis and Ryan Koziol combined to hold NWF State scoreless over the nal four innings. Brian Lamboys triple in the fth capped the scoring. It was his rst of the season. Flair has four triples in one of ve categories he leads the team. Flair of Belle Chase, La., said GC has given him a chance to ourish after two seasons at Mississippi State where he redshirted his rst season and had only seven at-bats as a freshman. I didnt get to play the last two years and (GC) coach (Mike) Kandler gave me a shot, Flair said. Im a hitter by nature. Its what I do. For the most part, getting to play every day has helped me. You cant sit the bench and do much. Flair has done most of the heavy lifting at the plate, but he noted he wasnt the only top bat in the lineup. He singled out Trevor Davis, who is near .400 and was 1 for 4 on Tuesday. He also said this seasons success has been a total effort. As a team we have a good offense, but we also have solid pitchers and can play defense, Flair said. When we make a bad play they (pitchers) pick us up. Flair and GC wrap up the three-game series against NWF State in Niceville at 5 p.m. on Wednesday.

Deputy Christopher Doyal is charged with one count of battery against inmate Ventura Brown. Investigators said evidence shows Doyal used excessive force without lawful justi cation during an altercation in Browns cell on Feb. 24. The State Attorneys Ofce also has video and audio evidence of the incident but would not release those les Monday. In the report, Investigator Jimmy Nolan said the video clearly shows Doyal swinging at Inmate Brown, but witnesses did not report seeing Doyal actually hit Brown. In Browns account of the incident, Doyal began punching him the face with keys he had in his right hand, chipping his front tooth, before he was taken to a local hospital. Inmates in neighboring cells recounted hearing Brown pounding on his cell door and yelling before Doyal appeared to investigate the disturbance. Brown told investigators that a day earlier he slipped on a wet oor and hit his head. He was yelling for his prescribed medication because his head was hurting. And he was using profanity toward Doyal, investigators reported. During the altercation, Brown was on the phone with his wife. He put the phone down, stepped back from the door and put his hands behind his back when Doyal arrived, he said. Browns wife could not make out what happened from there, she told investigators, but Brown said the door ew open and Doyal took a swing at him, which he sidestepped. At that time, Doyal pushed Brown against the wall then onto his bunk and began choking him before Doyal eventually punched him in the face with the keys, he said. A trustee inmate, Christopher Phillips, said he and other inmates were eating when Doyal came around asking who was beating on the door. When Doyal went into the cell, they heard hollering and ran into the hall to see. He watched Doyal detain Brown to his bunk but did not see either man throw a punch, he said. Phillips said, before separating the two, he heard Doyal say: What have I done to you, what have I done to you, a couple times, Nolan reported. Brown was taken to a local hospital for treatment to his injuries and is detained in the Jackson County Jail. TALLAHASSEE (AP) Floridas economy is showing signs of continued recovery, but a new analysis prepared by state economists also points to some problems. State economists on Monday released a 29-page snapshot looking at everything from wages to housing prices and unemployment. The good news: Florida was ranked 13th in 2013 in personal income growth and had a rate that exceeded the national average. Growth rates also are returning to more typical levels and consumer condence is improving, as is building permit activity. But the effects of the Great Recession will linger for a few more years. Economists estimate normalcy will not occur until 2016. It will take a few more years to climb completely out of the hole left by the recession, states the report prepared by the Of ce of Economic and Demographic Research. The report, for example, noted Floridas average wage is dropping further behind the average wage in the United States. Economists said Floridas average wage dropped to 87.7 percent of the average U.S. wage in 2012. Gov. Rick Scott consistently has touted the drop in the states unemployment rate as a sign his push for tax cuts and reduction in regulations has aided the state. The states unemployment rate is 6.2 percent, which is below the national average. But the state report notes the drop in Floridas unemployment rate has been helped by people dropping out of the labor force, or people who have not begun seeking work. The states real unemployment rate would be 6.9 percent if participation had held steady since December 2011, of cials said.

Wednesday, APRIL 2 2014 By BARBARA DENMAN Special to The Times-Advertiser BONIFAY Hundreds gathered from all denominations of church throughout the Panhandle as the 2014 State Evangelism Conference was hosted at the First Baptist Church in Bonifay on March 27-28. Each day, Florida Baptists will be encouraged and equipped by dynamic speakers and teachers from across the country, said David Burton, lead strategist the Florida Baptist Conventions Evangelism Group, which sponsors the event. The conference was in two locations this year to increase accessibility for all Florida Baptist pastors. Our pastors are extremely busy these days meeting needs of their congregations, Burton said. Conferences in two locations will make it easier for them to attend and not be absent for as long from their church eld. Also, travel and accommodations are expensive, and this will help ease that burden. The theme of the two-day meeting was Love-Share, focusing on the Conventions Love Your Neighbor, Share Christ evangelistic emphasis. An evangelism conference with a clear focus on reaching others for Christ is critical because so often, we nd churches and pastors losing their edge and heart for evangelism, Burton said. Too many books, authors and conferences tell us what doesnt work today without ever showing and telling what does work. Sometimes, complacency sets in the people our pastors are serving. We intend to have a pastor return to his church with fresh, new energy, insight and compassion to help these people push back darkness and lostness. The Panhandle conference in Bonifay featured Garland; John Sullivan, executive directortreasurer of the Florida Baptist Convention; and Craig Conner, pastor of First Baptist Church in Panama City on Thursday night. The Friday night session offered Sullivan, Maynard and Herb Reavis, pastor of North Jacksonville Baptist Church in Jacksonville. Also on the program was Robert Bradow with Cross Heir Out tters, a nondenominational Christian ministry reaching outdoorsmen with the Good News through sportsman banquets, beast feast and outdoor expos. From the reports I have received, pastors who are serving in the Panhandle region many who are ministering in small and rural communities are excited to see an evangelism conference with discussions and speakers geared to their unique setting, Burton said. During the two events, panel discussions and seminars was led by pastors of Florida Baptist churches that are effectively reaching their communities for Christ. The Bonifay meeting also featured Phillip Herrington, pastor of First Baptist Church in Live Oak; Shelly Chandler, pastor of the host church; Jackie Watts, pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church in Madison; and Ken Harrison, pastor of Northside Baptist Church in Ponce de Leon. Other seminar leaders were Ron Lentine, pastor of Myrtle Grove Baptist Church in Pensacola; Shawn Johnson, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dowling Park; and Rich Kincl, pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Tallahassee. Throughout the meeting, ministry exhibits designed to help churches increase their evangelistic activities were on display including the Strength Team, illusionist Brock Gill and CrossHeir Out tters.

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Extra ORLANDO (AP) Florida is a politically divided state. The Republicans have won the last four gubernatorial elections, but the Democrats have carried the state in the last two presidential elections. One U.S. senator is a Repub lican, while the other is a Demo crat. The Democrats hold a slight edge in voter registration. But that narrow divide be comes a chasm in Floridas congressional delegation and in the Legislature. Sixteen of Floridas 26 U.S. representa tives are Republicans, with one vacancy that will almost as suredly be lled by a Repub lican. Republicans also hold a 26-14 advantage in the Florida Senate and a 76-44 margin in the state House. Some Democrats argue that the discrepancies are caused by gerrymandering the Re publican-controlled Legislature drawing districts to give the GOP an unfair advantage, which would be illegal under Florida law. But two political science pro fessors say the discrepancies arent so simple or nefarious they have used the Sunshine State to popularize their argu ment that large concentrations of Democrats living in cities have given Republicans a redistricting advantage not just in Florida but nationwide. Jowei Chen of the University of Michigan and Jonathan Rod den of Stanford University say no amount of reforms to elimi nate gerrymandering is going to change an inherent bias based on where people live. Human geography plays a far greater role in generat ing electoral bias in the United States than commonly thought, they wrote in an inuential 2013 paper. Reformers in Florida have tried to stamp out gerrymander ing. They successfully convinced voters in 2010 to approve two amendments to the Florida Con stitution that would reduce the opportunities for lawmakers to make legislative and congressio nal districts that benet one party over the other. The amendments require districts to be compact and contiguous whenever pos sible and to follow existing city and county boundaries. They also prohibit attempts to diminish the chances for minorities to elect a candidate of their choosing. Chen and Rodden argue that Democrats tend to live in densely-populated cities while Republicans are more evenly scattered throughout suburban and rural areas. They also argue that Democratic precincts tend to be next to other highly-Demo cratic precincts, more so than Republican precincts, which tend to be located in politically mixed neighborhoods. As a result, Democrats tend to be tightly packed into fewer dis tricts than Republicans. Repub lican-dominated districts tend to be more diverse than Democratic precincts since pro-Republican rural areas often include Demo crats in small cities to reach the population threshold needed to create a district. In Florida, this translates into highly Democratic districts along Floridas southeastern coast in and around Fort Lauderdale, Mi ami and West Palm Beach. Mean while, Democratic precincts in interior cities like Ocala, and col lege towns like Gainesville and Tallahassee, are swallowed up by more rural, Republican districts, essentially drowning out Demo cratic votes. When compact, contiguous districts are imposed on this ge ography without regard to parti sanship, the result will be a skew in the distribution of partisanship across districts such that with 50 percent of the votes, Democrats can expect fewer than 50 percent of the seats, Chen and Rodden wrote. Despite having new redistrict ing standards in place, reformers felt the congressional plan ille gally favored Republicans and in cumbents and diminished the op portunities for minorities to elect representatives of their choice. The reformers, led by the League of Women Voters of Florida, have sued the Florida House, hoping to invalidate the current congressional and state Senate plans and prevent the current districts from being used in any future elections. The law suit is pending, and the Florida Supreme Court ruled in Decem ber that legislators can be forced to testify in the lawsuit, setting aside a long-standing privilege that legislators usually enjoy. Deirdre MacNab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, said the new amend ments are giving voters more choices. With regard to the House seats, Floridians have already seen a signicant increase in the numbers of competitive dis tricts, she said. Geography inuences redistricting in Florida Guinea Pigs are friendly and playful animals, and they can make for a wonderful addition to your family. However, there are always things to consider before welcoming any new pet into your home, and guinea pigs are no different. In honor of March being Adopta-Rescued-Guinea PigMonth, here is some information on these uffy friends to help you decide if they are the right pet for you. As with any pet, it is important that you have enough time to incorporate pet ownership into your everyday schedule. The responsibility of caring for a guinea pig should not be taken any less seriously than that of a dog, cat, or any other pet. Guinea pigs need to be properly groomed and have their cages thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis, and they require daily interaction outside of their cage. All of these responsibilities are necessities and essential for a guinea pigs well-being. Guinea pigs are generally friendly and curious animals and can make great pets, said Dr. Caitlin Burrell, a zoological medicine intern at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. It is important, however, that parents teach their children how to handle guinea pigs correctly, how to clean their cage and change their food, and how to tell if they are feeling ill. If you are bringing a guinea pig into your home as a family pet, make sure that your children are ready to take on the responsibility. Figuring pet ownership into a busy after school and weekend schedule can often be difcult for children to juggle. Adult supervision may also be required for younger children. Once you have decided you are ready to become a guinea pig parent, your next task will be choosing a breed that best suits your family. There are four types of guinea pigs commonly seen as pets: the Shorthair or English, the Abyssinian, the Silky, and the Peruvian, said Burrell. They can be found at pet stores but many shelters have small mammals, such as guinea pigs, that would love to be adopted! Most animal shelters now accept small animals that are in need of loving homes, and you could save a well deserving guinea pigs life while nding the perfect addition to your family. Guinea pigs can be housed in a variety of cages. Wire cages can be used but it is important to provide an area of solid ooring to prevent foot lesions, said Burrell. Cages can be lled with bedding materials like shredded paper or aspen shavings, but cedar and pine shavings should be avoided. Bedding material also needs to be changed regularly so that toxic substances dont accumulate. Another factor to consider when creating housing for your new pet is the location of the cage. Make sure it is safe from any other pets in your home that may view them as prey, and put somewhere that social interaction and out-of-cage play time may be supervised if you have small children. They should also be kept in a temperature and humidity controlled area and should have places within the cage that they can hide, said Burrell. As for food and diet, guinea pigs are herbivores that require a proper balance of fresh pellets, hay and fresh vegetables on a daily basis. They need lots of high quality hay to promote dental health, keep their gastrointestinal tract functioning normally, and to maintain a healthy weight. They can also be offered small amounts of guinea pig pellets and fresh veggies, but the main part of their diet should be hay, said Burrell. Additionally, guinea pigs need Vitamin C in their diet because they cannot synthesize it themselves. There are diets that have been supplemented with Vitamin C, but this can degrade rapidly as the food sits on the shelf. Burrell suggests that certain vegetables, such as dark leafy greens, peppers, or parsley can be a good source of Vitamin C as well. Rescuing a pet guinea pig from your local animal shelter could bring tremendous amounts of joy and life into your home. With the proper care and adequate attention, these small pets can earn a large spot in your heart. Boston celebrates 13th birthday Alexander Boston will celebrate his 13th Birthday on April 4, 2014.

Special to Extra The Alabama-West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church is excited to join other conferences within the United Methodist Church connection and announce the 2014 Imagine No Malaria campaign to save lives. Imagine No Malaria is an effort of The United Methodist Church to eliminate malaria deaths in Africa by 2015. The AWF conference has a goal of saving 100,000 lives, or raising more than $1 million. It only takes $10 to save one life through Imagine No Malaria. Malaria is spread by mosquitoes, and $10 will buy one insecticide-treated bed net. The United Methodists world-wide partners include the United Nations Foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Global Fund. Through the efforts of the church and other organizations, deaths from malaria in Africa have been cut in half since 2010. But still, one child in Africa dies from malaria every 45 seconds. In America, we have been able to eliminate deaths from malaria. Now is the time to join together to eliminate deaths from malaria in Africa. The Outreach Team of Bonifay United Methodist Church has set a goal saving 500 lives. In dollars, this means raising $5,000 between now and June 1, but the Outreach Team prefers to think in terms of lives saved rather than money raised. If you would like to join with others in ghting this deadly disease, please send a check to Bonifay United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 477, Bonifay, FL 32425. Mark the check as being for the Malaria Campaign. Simply giving up eating out one time could save one live. In what better way can we be the hands and feet of Christ? The California condor, North Americas largest bird, is almost extinct. No longer does this majestic bird grace the skies. A few remain in captivity, and naturalists are seeking to breed them in order to reintroduce to the wild. Something else has disappeared, and few seem to notice the passing. I refer to old-fashioned saints. They were common in a former generation. Many people thought them a bit peculiar, but they were spiritual pillars of the Lords work in their day. They were the God-intoxicated souls, to use the language of that generation. They walked with God and had such rapport with Him they needed nothing exterior for support. With the passing of these saints, other things have disappeared. An obvious thing, at least for the person who reads Christian biographies, is the absence of spiritual power in the church today. Saints of a bygone generation evidenced power in their daily lives and carried an aura of Gods presence wherever they went. They unleashed spiritual energy through prayer. Gods ear seemed bent in their direction. Contemporary church leaders have exchanged this power for slick strategy, modern technology and polished promotion. Todays emphasis is on hatching programs instead of breeding saints. Few activities depend heavily on the Holy Spirit these days. We have become so sophisticated that He is not necessary in our ministries. Instead, the emphasis is on education, strategy and marketing. The saints of a former generation relied on the Holy Spirit. This was their most distinctive characteristic. A sure sign of the neglect of the Holy Spirit among todays Christians is in contemporary evangelism methods. When any one method is slavishly duplicated, you can be certain God is not in it. The Spirit-led saint of the past initiated things; he never imitated. In one of his books, E.M. Bounds makes this comment: The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men: men whom the Holy Ghost can use men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. If we learn anything from the public ministry of our Lord, it is that He was not a slave to strategy but relied on the ministry of the Holy Spirit in everything. Our Lord never relied solely on methods to do the work of the ministry. Our crowds are bigger and the offerings larger. However, the spiritual in uence of our generation is almost nothing compared with the in uence saints of the past had in their generation. It is about time that a few concerned Christians became interested in making saints to reintroduce them into the church.

On Aug. 18, 2013, an inmate abruptly attacked Sergeant Stephen Gillman during the noon meal at Holmes Correctional Institution in Bonifay. Of cers White, Fischer, and Smith immediately responded to the assault as they observed Sergeant Gillman slashed in the head and back with a pick-style weapon by the inmate. The of cers subdued the inmate and placed him in restraints. The attack was a gang hit that had been put out on Sergeant Gillman because he identi ed a staff member for supplying tobacco and other contraband items to the inmates at the facility resulting in the arrest of the employee. It is an honor for me to present the Medal of Heroism to these brave of cers, Governor Scott said, Their quick response helped prevent other individuals from getting harmed. Not only did they demonstrate their dedication to service and their commitment to public safety, but also kept their HC Correctional Of cers presented with Medal of Heroism See MEDAL A2By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County Board of County Commissioners revealed the new Holmes County 911 Coordinator to be Clifton McGowan, during their regularly scheduled meeting on March 25. If the name sounds familiar, thats because he was announced as the countys top choice for the Federal Emergency Management Agency Coordinator during the last regularly scheduled meeting; however, after salary negotiations, McGowan turned down the temporary position in favor of a more permanent one, leaving the second runner-up, Wendel Whitehurst, as the favorable candidate for FEMA Coordinator. Whitehurst accepted that position. McGowan was formally voted in as the new 911 Coordinator during a special session held Monday, March 17.

Clark Park in Esto. The reason why we started the Two Toe Tom Festival back up is in memory of all our towns elders, said Event Coordinator and Esto Town Council member Darlene Madden. The elders wanted something for the community to do together, no matter if theyre young, old, individually or as a family. Frances Kirkland was involved with the rst Two Toe Tom Festival held on Sept. 5, 1987 and would later become a chair member of the Two Toe Tom Festival committee. The reason why we started it was because we needed something to bring the community together, for something for both young and old to participate in and enjoy as a community, said Kirkland. It also helped raise money to help repair the senior citizens building. When E.W. Carswell published the history of the Town of Esto and included the legend of Two Toe Tom, we knew we had something unique to our area and special to our community.Esto prepares for 3rd Annual Two Toe Tom FestivalBy CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Guest speakers at last weeks Bonifay Kiwanis Club meeting on March 26 were Jeep Sullivan, founder of Jeep Sullivans Outdoor Adventures, Inc. and Carter Hess, son of State Attorney Glen Hess and wounded veteran.

Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Michael Crews said, The swift action taken by Sergeant Gillman and Ofcers White, Fischer and Smith is a testament to their devotion and shows they acted to come to the aid of one of their own and not give a second thought to their own personal safety. Their seless actions saved the life of their colleague and the lives of inmates, said Crews. I applaud the response of these ofcers and appreciate the Governor for recognizing them with this most-deserved Medal. The Medal of Heroism is given to any law enforcement or correctional ofcer, reghter, emergency medical technician or paramedic who has distinguished himself or herself by risking his or her life deliberately above and beyond the call of duty and must have engaged in hazardous or perilous activities to preserve lives with the knowledge that such activities might result in great personal harm.

As you know for the last six years weve been working hard to improve our water and sewer for the City of Bonifay, spending over $10 million in the process, said Cloud. Cloud explained that there was some emergency money coming from a grant where the City of Bonifay was at the top of the list, ranking number one, however there is still quite a bit of drainage issues since the last big rain and the city is requesting assistance from the county to clear debris and maintain a portion of ditch outside of the city limits to help with those drainage issues. The Board agreed they are interested in helping, however they must rst consult their engineers to make sure they are able. Holly Holt with the Holmes County Health Department requested assistance in getting a generator for the health department. If theres a disaster we have immunizations that need to stay refrigerated; immunizations that cost a lot of money and are important to the health and well being of our residents, said Holt. It would be good to have a back-up generator just incase the power goes out so we dont loose those immunizations or have to go through a hefty ordeal to make sure they remain cool. Board agreed to look into the matter. Herman Knowles, Jr. came before the Board to discuss potholes on Ammons Road. Ive been there for almost ten years, and that road just continues to deteriorate, said Knowles. The city has done their best to patch those holes, but since it is down hill and theres heavy trafc, it doesnt take long for those patches to wear out. The Board agreed to allow one of their engineers to look at possible solutions. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners is set for 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 8. McGOWAN from page A1 Another individual vital to the success of the Two Toe Tom Festival was Annie Laura Williams Kidd, said Kirkland. She explained that Kidd was a tireless supporter of the festival and was responsible for most of the community getting involved through her constant community efforts and promotions of the event. I was truly amazed to see how the community came together for a common cause, which was to better the community, said Kirkland. It was a festival created of the community, by the community and for the community. Madden said that it was now up to the present generation to continue the festival because the time of needing the community to pull together and support one another is at hand. Theres a lot of money that goes into producing a festival now a days, said Madden. It is so expensive with all of these extra expenses for advertising and safety requirements, but it is something that this town needs. Weve got something special here, we just need to pull together and make it something great again. This years event will include a car show with a 50/50 drawing, horseshoe tournament, dunking booth, re truck exhibit, cakewalk, face painting, a large variety of vendors and live entertainment from The Springs, Josh Cobb, Graceville High School Show Choir Illusions, Patti Rutland Jazz Dance Center, Final Harvest Gospel Group, Graceville High School Show Choir Prodigy, Big Jimmy and Ron Fench.

It is amazing and an honor to have these men in my boat, deer stand or duck blind, said Sullivan. This gives these guys a chance to really relax and smile and its become something better than I could ever imagine. Its been a blessing. He said his heart is touched by the men and women who sacriced of themselves, guratively and literally, and he wanted to give something back. Soon, he started a 501c3 organization to do just that. Carter Hess served two tours with the 82nd Airborne before he lost his leg to an IED, improvised explosive device, in June of 2012. In November of last year, my dad said if I wanted to go turkey hunting, Jeep Sullivan was just the guy to see, said Hess. Normally, if you want to go hunting, I imagine you want a guy with a name like Jeep. So, we went turkey hunting with a colonel from the Air Force. He told about their rst day hunting, which no turkeys showed up and on the second day the colonel and Hess were sitting, waiting on a turkey. While we were sitting I decided to take off my prosthetic leg and the colonel watched with wide eyes, said Hess. I told him if I had to shoot the turkey with a gun or bow and arrow or if I have to beat him down with this leg, one way or another a turkey was going to die. Needless to say that really broke the ice. He said after a while a turkey came out, turned a corner and was out of sight. Figuring that for the only turkey to come out that day they were surprised to see a second turkey and this time the colonel didnt hesitate to shoot the turkey. The aim must not have been so good because instead of hitting the ground the turkey ran around in ve-yard circles with the colonel not far behind him, said Hess. If I ever remember anything it would be the image of the colonel chasing that turkey around in circles. I tell you now, its not about the hunt, its about the memories made, its about a connections and its thanks to Jeep we have that opportunity. Sullivan said as a 501c3 they accept donations. If you have the money and you want to make a difference we sure could use it, said Sullivan. Ive seen the faces of the new guys just wanting to connect and I just want to continue connecting and be there for them to show that civilians care enough about our veterans to do something for them.

The Holmes County Chamber of Commerce understands just how much the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo means to this community, said Bullington. It is a wonderful fund raiser for the Bonifay Kiwnais Club that allows them do outstanding work for the children of Holmes County, but it is more than that. The community takes pride of ownership in the Rodeo they come every year, they invite their family and friends to come, they are proud that they are from Bonifay the Home the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo. She said as a tribute to the 70th Anniversary they had Melody Bazzle take some rodeo memorabilia plus her own ingenious ideals and some fancy embroidery work and created a rodeo quilt, which the chamber will rafe off $10 per ticket or 3 for $25. Over the next six months, the Chamber will display the quilt at many of the sponsors and members businesses to remind everyone the rodeo is coming to town Oct. 2, 3 and 4. The drawing will take place the Tuesday, Oct. 7. For more information on purchasing tickets for the rafe contact Bullington at 547-4682.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A3Wednesday, April 2, 2014WASHINGTON (AP) As a roller-coaster sign-up season winds down, President Barack Obamas health care law has indeed managed to change the country. Americans are unlikely to go back to a time when people with medical problems could be denied coverage. But Obamas overhaul needs major work of its own if it is to go down in history as a legacy achievement like Medicare or Social Security. Major elements of the Affordable Care Act face an uncertain future: As a 6-month-long signup season comes to an end Monday the administrations next big challenge is to make 2015 open enrollment more manageable for consumers unaccustomed to dealing with insurance jargon. There also is concern premiums will rise next year. The new insurance markets created by the law are anything but customer friendly. After the HealthCare.gov website nally got xed, more than 6 million people have managed to sign up, allowing the exchanges to stay aoat economically. But many consumers have bought policies with restricted access to top-tier hospitals and the latest medications. The website is seeing heavy trafc this weekend, and consumers may encounter a wait or last-minute glitches. Almost half the states still are opposed to or undecided about the laws expansion of Medicaid, the governments health insurance program for the poor. As a result, millions of lowincome people who otherwise would have been covered remain uninsured. This years pitch has been about the carrots in the law: subsidies and guaranteed coverage. But the sticks are just over the horizon: collecting penalties from individuals who remain uninsured and enforcing requirements that mediumto large-sized employers provide affordable coverage. Many basic facts about the ultimate effects of the health insurance program remain unclear. Its not known how many of those who have gotten coverage were previously uninsured the ultimate test of the law. Independent measurements by Gallup do show fewer uninsured Americans, but such progress hasnt won hearts and minds. The public remains deeply divided, with opponents of the law outnumbering supporters. At a recent insurance industry conference, a top administration ofcial acknowledged the huge job still ahead. The No. 1 thing that probably weve all learned from 2014 is that this is hard work, said Gary Cohen, outgoing director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, the agency created to carry out the health care law. Its not a one-year project; its a multiyear project ... were asking a lot, frankly, of consumers, he added. This is new for them. Among those consumers is Dan Luke of St. Paul, Minn., the owner of a small video production company who had been uninsured since he was turned down for coverage last year because of a pre-existing condition. The condition? Luke was born with one eye due to a birth defect, and he uses a glass eye. For 63 years Ive had one eye, said Luke. They had to dig deep to nd that. Hes happy with the coverage he and his wife have bought; theyre saving $300 a month on premiums compared with the last time they had insurance. But he said he had to endure weeks of website run-arounds. There is a lot of bureaucracy involved, said Luke. Its sort of like taxes, lled with loopholes and pitfalls. They should make it easier for people to get insurance and pay for insurance, rather than have to prove so many things and jump through so many hoops. Those comments echo sentiments broadly reected in national opinion polls. Most Americans want lawmakers to x the problems with the health care law, rather than scrapping it. A new AP-Gfk poll nds that only 13 percent expect the law will be completely repealed. Seventy-two percent say it will be implemented with changes, whether major or minor. Republicans have again made repeal of Obamacare their ofcial battle cry this election season. But even if the GOP wins control of the Senate and Congress were to repeal the law next year, the president would veto it. Opponents would then need a difcult two-thirds majority in both chambers to override Obamas veto. Its going to depend on the next couple of elections whether we stick with the current ACA models, said Brookings Institution health policy expert Mark McClellan, who oversaw the rollout of the last major federal coverage expansion, the Medicare prescription drug benet. We are still a long way from a stable market and from completing implementation, he said. But were not going back to people with pre-existing conditions having no good options. The administration will have to get to work quickly on a plan for next year. It is still struggling with such basics as providing consumers with clear information about the process and their options. Until now, those signing up have skewed toward an older crowd. That could lead to higher premiums next year, making the program a harder sell for younger people. Some Democratic lawmakers who voted for the law are frustrated. Instead of just circling the wagons against all the political arrows that are shot against this plan, we need a little more accountability, and we need to ensure the next enrollment period is not handled as poorly as the last one, said Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas. DeAnn Friedholm, health reform team leader for Consumers Union, said her group still supports Obamas overhaul, but with concerns. The jury is out in terms of its long-term success, she said. We still think its better than the old way, which left a lot of people out because they were sick. atBeltone!SpringtimeHearingAidCLEAN & CHECK NALEC Anymakeormodel!

The meetings begin at 11:30 a.m. with a potluck luncheon followed with a horticulture program and our business agenda. President Adonna Bartlett presided over the meeting.

Holmes County High Schools Drama Department was vital to this last years Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo and we voted at the last board meeting to give them $1,000, Bonifay Kiwanis Club President Sandy Spear said. They sold programs, participated in concessions and in VIP. We are grateful for their service and dedication, and we cant thank them enough. Accepting the donation on behalf of the HCHS Drama Department was Director Ricky Ward. We are proud to be an active member of the community, Ward said. We are currently working on something weve never done before and view it as a welcomed challenge, which will be the production Cats. The students are working really hard, and even though they are excellent at singing and dancing, their current challenge is costume design. Ward said opening night is on May 8, which he will send a press release soon giving full detail of the dates and times. I would like to take this time to thank everyone within the club and the community for their continued support of the program, Ward said.

Oh, if life were as simple as those crazy commercials. Some truly ridiculous commercials bombard our television airwaves. And why am I only now having this revelation? Perhaps youve known for years that if commercials were generally worth watching, advertisers wouldnt have to pay to be on the air, and we wouldnt avoid them by hitting the remote to switch between The Voice and re-runs of The Fresh Prince. One ad in particular leaves me arguing with the television as if I were watching a Jerry Springer episode, believing my words will magically permeate the screen and help those idiotic guests see the error of their ways. Youve seen it. An attractive woman glides into her living room, twirls around in a pretty dress and asks her husband, What do you think? Apparently overcome by the beauty of his bride, the man reacts as any man would: he suggests a vacation (right...), explaining the credit card reward points theyve earned will pay for everything. We cant, says the wife. The husband, overwhelmed by his wifes loveliness, insists. Oh yes, we can. Then he explains all the wonderful things they can do as a couple with all those points. The scene is complete with visuals of the couple laughing and having all sorts of fun on several outings. The husband is about to be surprised. No, we cant, she says again, with a sly smile, deftly smoothing the sides of her dress. Then, it dawns on him. His well-dressed wife has just spent all their reward points on that one dress. Thats when this little tale strays well away from any reality Ive ever known. The husband just smiles, and the commercial is over. Over, that is except for the speed-talking part of gratuitous disclaimers from the announcer. Who are they kidding? Where is the raging discussion that should logically ensue? I can accept the Snuggle bear caressing his furry little cheek with my linens and complimenting me on how soft they are. Its not even too far-fetched that a bumblebee who sounds suspiciously like Antonio Banderas is concerned about my allergy medication. But a husband having no problem that his wife spent what appears to be their hard-earned points on a dress apparently worth at least the cost of two plane tickets, a boat rental and a night of dancing? Oh, please! Does that company really expect us to buy that in this economy? Wouldnt it make more sense to say, Honey, I paid our health insurance premium with our points or Gas is four dollars a gallon again, so I used our points to ll up both cars? My outrage ebbs when I realize this couple obviously doesnt live in a small Northwest Florida community (well, that and the fact they arent real.) Most ladies here would be more considerate of their spouse, and while we might like nice dresses, most of us prefer our clothes machine washable and commercials more believable. After all, Snuggles the cuddly bear wont magically appear to compliment your laundry if the tags say dry clean only.

A friend and I were getting out of our vehicle about 45 miles north of Panama City, it was about 5:40 a.m. and I wondered if the slightly cooler than normal temperatures and stifferthan-ideal wind would interfere with the rst attempt to lure a gobbler this year. We need this wind to die down, he said. We had everything else we needed decoys, shotguns, camo, netting, mosquito spray, water everything, really, except a doped-up gobbler that would ensure success. We just need Mother Nature to throw us a bone. And she did, for as we walked to the spot I had mentally pondered for a week, the wind disappeared like a child at bath time. We settled in and waited for that most glorious of sounds for a true turkey hunter: the rst gobble of the morning which would, for me, also be the rst gobble of the season. You dont get a gobble every time out, but gobbles rarely translate into taking home a bird. This isnt deer hunting, sitting in a stand on a food plot ush with their favorite foods. You cant hunt turkeys over bait, number one, and hearing a turkey gobble is a long cry from seeing a deer. On my hunting lease we dont allow turkeys to be taken by ri e, it is shotgun only and that means a range of about 45-50 yards. It also means you have to call the gobbler in. And early in the seasons, the hens are pretty cooperative and tend to head toward that rst gobble and offer to work in concert with the gobbler to produce the next generation of turkeys, if you get my drift. So there sits the gobbler in his tree some people dont realize turkeys roost in trees overnight gobbling away and his harem gathers and its a buyers market. We, meanwhile, are a couple of hundred yards away letting out some yelps and hen noises trying to get that gobbler to come on over to us and our decoys. It brought to mind Spring Break and the analogy that our task that morning would be about like standing 100 yards from a stage with Luke Bryan performing and us busting out in song in hopes that some of those ladies would abandon him and head our way. But we know it can be done and my friend went to work on the calling while I took pictures and imagined a giant gobbler behind every sway of a bush in the breeze. We heard that golden sound, in fact we heard at least three and maybe four gobblers talking. And one was moving closer. But, as often happens, the morning fell silent and we had a choice to make: Was it time to get on the move and track those gobblers down or sit tight and see if they showed up? Silence doesnt always mean the gobbler is henned up, or busy with a hen, it sometimes means hes honing in on you. Its early in the season and we were antsy, so we took off. We worked around the fringes of woods, we traipsed through pine straw-covered forest oor between planted pines and we tromped through heavy brush near creeks, trying to nd that gobbler. And we just couldnt pin him down. So we decided to head back to our original spot and work our way in from there, where the going would be easier. As we approached the spot, you can probably guess what we saw: turkeys. They were ying. Away from us. From the very spot our gear still sat. The gobbler that had gone silent had been moving toward us and some hens had shown up and if wed just sat still wed probably have taken him home. And it was a beautiful day that reminded me of two things. Theres a reason they call it hunting, not killing. And sometimes you never catch the things you chase the hardest, but if youll hold still and let them determine their own path, they might come to you on their own. MIKE CAZALASBetween the Cracks Back in November, I wrote a column about our cats weve had through the years. Someone remarked that I certainly knew my cat genealogy. I only mentioned some of the important ones. But I did mention Tebow, the part Siamese bobtailed kitten we acquired in September from Kim Barber. He turned out to be the most memorable one weve ever had. Sadly, on Tuesday of last week, my cuddly, playful, inquisitive, fearless Tebow who thought all dogs as playful as Zelda, my granddaughter Hannahs golden retriever, climbed the fence into the neighbors dog yard and was killed instantly. Jack and I and our four remaining cats are grieving. Casper the white short-haired cat who appeared from nowhere one November several years ago while Jack was cracking pecans was watching the episode. Ever since, weve been letting the kitten Tebow outside some during the day, Casper has kept his eye on him. Unfortunately, he couldnt warn him of the danger he was approaching. Meredith was another Siamese-colored kitten that came to us when Maria was a kitten. My Mexican girls named Maria. They wanted to name her Dolores, as they said she was my favorite of the Carnejo girls, but I told them she had to be named with an M name as she has an M above her eyes. So they happily named her Maria, Dolores middle name. Then when we got Macey, a short-haired tabby Manx who had the M above her eyes, we named her Meredith for my niece, Marias younger sister. Maria turned out to be Jacks cat and Meredith, like Tebow, was mine. Also like Tebow, she loved outside and one morning about 3 a.m. She insisted on going out. When we got up a little later to start on a trip to Punta Gorda, we found her dead on the highway. In my previous article, I didnt mention Peaches, my purebred silver-tipped Persian, which was given to me by Cindys friend, Delberta, who worked with her in the college of journalism at UF. I had several adventures with her. I carried her with me in a big straw handbag. One day, while visiting in Gainesville, I took her in the bag up to the College of Journalism to visit Cindy and Delberta. Since it was a long hallway, I decided Id let her walk. Instead, she, enjoying the freedom from the bag, started running down the long empty hallway. Fortunately, I was able to capture her before the Dean, Cindys boss saw her. Another time, I took her to the beauty shop and let her run around there. However, when I saw Gorgeanne and Evelyn scurrying around as the inspector had arrived unexpectedly, I quickly scooped Peaches up and put her back in her straw bag and casually held it closed. She never made a peep while the inspector was there. Peaches almost never went outside in her 13 years. But once she did, and she climbed a juniper outside the porch and wouldnt come down. I couldnt persuade her, and the tree was too skinny to climb or support a ladder. I was crying to Jack saying, What are we going to do? He said, Im not going to do anything. She can get down the way she got up there. As if Peaches understood what he said, she immediately started backing down the tree trunk. When I had to euthanize her because of blindness and other problems, Nephew Tim took charge of her body for me. Dr. Woodham had given me a tranquilizer for her, which I resisted the temptation to take myself We always had cats and kittens when I was growing up, but the rst very special one I had was a gray Persian, which my Dad brought home from Mrs. John Christos home on Beach Drive in Panama City. She was one of his good peddling customers and was our benefactor in many ways. I dont even recall that kittens name, but that was about the time when DDT was being used for insect control and the kitten became sick and died. We learned rst-hand that DDT was harmful to pets and probably to humans. Over the years, my mother had many cats, but one memorable one was Huss. Shed had her for several years and several litters of kittens. But then one day when she had a new litter, she moved the whole litter down the hill to neighbor, Mrs. Jack Deans. Later, when the kittens were old enough to wean, Huss brought Mama one of her kittens and returned to Mrs. Deans. She never came back home herself. Katie was a small, fullgrown, female, gray shorthair who showed up at the old home place after Mama had died. Daddy was not much of a cat person, but after my sister Minnie took Katie and had her spayed, she became a part of Daddys and his caregiver Nancys household. She lived there as an inside/ outside cat for about ve years, as long as Daddy lived and as long as Nancy stayed on at the house. Then after Nancy moved, she remained on being an inside cat when my sister Muriel and husband Roy visited and outside the rest of the time. Hiram and son Taylor kept food and water supplied. Shed visit their house occasionally, but then one day in the late fall, she appeared at their door, bag and baggage. She was checking herself into the nursing home. She never went outside again, sleeping at Judys head every night. We couldnt calculate how old she was when she died, but we jokingly said that she was Mama reincarnated. All of my sisters and my nieces have their own cat tails. In fact, cat topics comprises a good part of our conversation when we are together. Cats bring us a lot of pleasure, but loving them is like loving our family and friends or other pets. It opens us up to a lot of joy, but it also opens us to sadness as well.

LocalHolmes County Times-Advertiser | A5Wednesday, April 2, 2014By CECILIA SPEARS547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Whats on your Bucket List? During the March 19 Bonifay Kiwanis meeting, nancial adviser Matthew Wegner explained that good nancial decisions starts with goals, and some of the most important goals could be found on someones bucket list. Let me explain what its like; its like youre ready for the big game, youve got the tickets, you nally get the family ready and on the road, you get to the parking lot and theres no parking, you nally park and get in the stadium, you grab some snacks at the snack bar, go up the bleachers and nd your seat, Wegner said. Then the game begins, the referee tosses up the ball, your player gabs the ball, dribbles it down the court and as he makes it to the end of the court everyone realizes someone removed the goal the night before. Thats what it is like not to have goals and you need goals because how else are you going to know how to keep score or how to get there if you dont know where it is. He said the main problems are most become distracted from their goal and the more people become connected the faster they become distracted. Wegner even referred to the concept of good nances being Biblical, saying that even though verses, such as Matthew 6:19 and Mark 8:36, state that ones treasures should not be considered on Earth but in Heaven, there was a reference in Ecclesiastes 5:1819 about building up ones storehouse. The best nancial advice he ever received, he explained, came from the simple notion of creating a bucket list and after showing a clip from the 2007 comedydrama starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, he explained a bucket list is exactly how it sounds a list of things one wants to accomplish before one kicks the bucket. Make a bucket list, Wegner said. Doing so will help you stay focused on the longer term and keep you from making short term emotional decisions with your investments. What makes bucket lists so important is it really focuses on someones main priorities, keeping an eye on the long-term perspective of a legacy left behind. An announcement was made about the upcoming State Evangelistic Conference to be hosted by the First Baptist Church in Bonifay on March 27 and 28, which will be open to all denominations interested in the development and expansion of Evangelism.

Miranda Barbour, 19, garnered national attention when she told the Daily Item during a jailhouse interview she was involved in a satanic cult and killed 22 people. In a second interview, published Saturday on the Daily Items website, she claimed to have worked as a 15-year-old go-go dancer in Panama City and buried human remains in Mexico Beach. The Daily Item reports Barbour mentioned Mexico Beach as one of three cities where she said investigators would nd parts of bodies. There is some there as well, Barbour reportedly said. The report leaves investigators with almost nothing to go on, but law enforcement agencies havent dismissed them. As Maj. Mark Aviles with the Panama City Police Department said, This is a crazy person whos giving out the information, so youve got to take it, but youve got to take it with a grain of salt. Aviles said Panama City police have no record of any contact with Barbour, and he was not aware of any cases that might tie to Barbour. Mexico Beach Police Chief Glenn Norris said Monday he had not heard from authorities in Pennsylvania, so he planned to reach out to them and nd out what was going on. This is the rst Ive heard about a murder here in Mexico Beach, Norris said. He said there are no unsolved homicide or suspicious missing person cases that would t with Barbours claims, which he said were vague. Unless I have more to go on Norris said. The Bay County Sheriffs Ofce also is working the case. We have assigned an investigator to look into her claims, spokeswoman Ruth Corley said Monday. Corley said the investigation had not substantiated any of the claims in the Daily Item as of Monday. Panama City Beach police are working with authorities with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement in Sunbury, PCB Police Chief Drew Whitman said. We do have a missing person from that time frame, so were taking it seriously, Whitman said. PCBPD investigators are tryingto get video footage of the interview to hear exactly what Barbour said. That would help a lot, Whitman said. Barbour and her husband, 22-year-old Elytte Barbour, are charged with luring 42-year-old Troy LaFerrara to meet them in a shopping center parking lot in November. When LaFerrara got in their car, Elytte Barbour allegedly strangled him while Miranda Barbour allegedly stabbed him repeatedly. Miranda Barbour told the Daily Item she joined a satanic cult at age 13 in Alaska and began killing people shortly thereafter. She said she lost track of the number of murders she had participated in at 22.The importance of a bucket listPolice probing satanists claimsNo evidence found yet of body parts in Mexico Beach MIRANDA BARBOUR ELYTTE BARBOUR

LocalA6 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, April 2, 2014 Ocala Star-Banner The national average for a gallon of regular gasoline inched up 2 cents in the past week. Typical spring factors like renery maintenance, increasing demand and the switch to summer-blend fuel remain part of the story. The most expensive prices in the Southeast are found in Florida, where the average price on Monday was $3.63, 8 cents higher than the national average and 7 cents higher than last week. Florida motorists are seeing the highest gas prices since July, said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. While Florida prices could continue inching up, they are still well below last years peak of $3.88 and not expected to reach $4 a gallon. Gas prices in Florida are increasing more than other states because of supply issues and strong demand. Unlike other states, the majority of Floridas gasoline is delivered by ship instead of pipeline. According to the Energy Information Administration, imports have dramatically declined during recent years, due to renery closures in the Caribbean and limited shipments from reneries in the Gulf of Mexico that would otherwise be able to offset the shortage. Now, anytime gasoline demand spikes, retailers must engage in a bidding war with the New York Harbor for shipments from the Atlantic basin to prevent a shortage. The EIA also states that gasoline consumption in Florida typically peaks in March, when seasonal population is high and Spring Break travelers and baseball fans arrive. This pattern differs from other states, where gasoline consumption typically peaks in July and August and is lowest during the winter months.

Floridas average gas price highest in the SoutheastWA ASHIHINGTOTON (AP) With just hours to spare, Congress stepped Monday to nalize legislation to prevent doctors who treat Medicare patients from being hit with a 24 percent cut in their payments from the government. The Senates 64-35 vote sends a measure to delay the cuts for a year to President Barack Obama, who is expected to quickly sign it. The House passed the measure last week. The $21 billion measure would stave off a 24 percent cut in Medicare reimbursements to doctors for a year and extend dozens of other expiring health care provisions such as higher payment rates for rural hospitals. The legislation is paid for by cuts to health care providers, but fully half of the cuts wont kick in for 10 years. Its the 17th temporary patch to a broken payment formula that dates to 1997 and comes after lawmakers failed to reach a deal on nancing a permanent x. The measure passed the House on Thursday, but only after top leaders in both parties engineered a voice vote when it became clear they were having difculty mustering the two-thirds vote required to advance it under expedited procedures. Several top Democrats opposed the bill, saying it would take momentum away from the drive to permanently solve the payment formula problem. Theres widespread agreement on bipartisan legislation to redesign the payment formula that would give doctors 0.5 percent annual fee increases and implement reforms aimed at giving doctors incentives to provide less costly care. But theres no agreement on how to pay the approximately $140 billion cost. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., promised to keep pressing ahead with a long-term solution, proposing to use savings from the troop drawdown in Afghanistan to pay the cost. Republicans and most budget experts say such savings are phony and are demanding at least some of the money to come from cuts to Obamas Affordable Care Act. Paying for this through (war savings) is the mother of all gimmicks, said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. We just dont have the votes right now to x this problem for good, said Majority leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who negotiated the measure with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. For the millions of elderly Americans and their doctors this x is good news. It means the promise of accessible, quality health care to our nations seniors is being honored for another year. The heavily lobbied measure blends $16 billion to address Medicare physicians payments with about $5 billion more for a variety of other expiring health care provisions. such as higher Medicare payments to rural hospitals and for ambulance rides in rural areas. Manufacturers of certain drugs to treat kidney disease catch a break, as do dialysis providers and the state of California, which receives increases in Medicare physician fees in 14 counties such as San Diego and Sacramento that are designated as rural and whose doctors therefore receive lower payments than their urban counterparts. The bill increases spending by $17 billion over the next three years, offsetting the cost with cuts to health care providers. The authors of the bill employed considerable gimmickry to amass the cuts, however, and fully half of them dont appear for 10 years. For instance, the bill claims $5 billion in savings through a timing shift in Medicare cuts in 2024. TALLAHATALLAHA SSEE EE (AP) The federal government has dropped the ball for the last 30 or 40 years in its marijuana policy and Florida is ready to pick it up, Sen. Jeff Clemens said Monday. This 50 and 60s era reefer madness attitude caused us to turn away from a plant as form of medicine and move to these synthetic drugs that are often a lot worse for our bodies, said Clemens, D-Lake Worth. In a panel discussion Monday, Clemens joined Democratic Rep. Katie Edwards and Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz to pledge a push for passage of so-called Charlottes Web, a nonintoxicating oil extracted from the marijuana plant. Gaetz in particular has been pushing a bill (HB 843) that would approve the oil extract, in tear-jerker hearings that have been marked by testimony from parents of children with intractable epilepsy and have heard of successful treatment via the oil in Colorado, where it is legal. I suspect we are on a cautious walk forward, and this is the rst step, Gaetz said.Lawmakers extol virtues of medical pot

By BRAD MILNER747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY Nick Flairs business cards could read hitter, plain and simple. The Gulf Coast sophomore rarely sees a pitch he cant connect with and he racked up three more hits on Monday, including a three-run home run, in a 95 win over Northwest Florida State at Bill Frazier Field. His homer capped a seven-run third inning to give starter Brendan Leach a cushion on a day when the right-hander didnt have his usual dominant mix on the mound. Flair drove in half of GCs eight runs through the rst three innings. He added a single in the sixth and nished the day with a .426 batting average, seven points higher than when he woke up on Monday. His three hits and an identical number from Dalton Kelley kept GC in a rst-place tie with Chipola in the Panhandle Conference at 6-2 after a fth straight win. Leach has been great all year. This was his rst rough game all year, said Flair of the GC starter, who had six strikeouts and three walks while giving up eight hits in 4 1/3 innings of a no-decision. If he struggles, we struggle. On offense we took it upon ourselves to make things happen. Flairs homer off losing pitcher Brandon Nagem turned a 1-1 tie into a three-run GC lead. Max Bartlett and Dondrayas Harris (Rutherford) had RBIs from the bottom of the lineup and Kelley singled them in when the Commodores batted through the lineup in the third. GC (29-8) held on behind Kelley, who entered for Leach in the fth and tossed 3 1/3 innings of scoreless relief for the win. Kelley yielded a walk and gave up RBIs singles to Danny Blanco and Ryan Fucci to pull NWF State (22-11, 4-4) within 8-5. Blanco also had a solo homer in the fourth and he and Fucci nished with two hits apiece. Each of the ve runs were charged to Leach, who gave up six earned runs in his previous 47 1/3 innings. Kelley (1-0) had ve strikeouts and one walk and Brandon Pergantis and Ryan Koziol combined to hold NWF State scoreless over the nal four innings. Brian Lamboys triple in the fth capped the scoring. It was his rst of the season. Flair has four triples in one of ve categories he leads the team. Flair of Belle Chase, La., said GC has given him a chance to ourish after two seasons at Mississippi State where he redshirted his rst season and had only seven at-bats as a freshman. I didnt get to play the last two years and (GC) coach (Mike) Kandler gave me a shot, Flair said. Im a hitter by nature. Its what I do. For the most part, getting to play every day has helped me. You cant sit the bench and do much. Flair has done most of the heavy lifting at the plate, but he noted he wasnt the only top bat in the lineup. He singled out Trevor Davis, who is near .400 and was 1 for 4 on Tuesday. He also said this seasons success has been a total effort. As a team we have a good offense, but we also have solid pitchers and can play defense, Flair said. When we make a bad play they (pitchers) pick us up.

PT/FTSeasonalSupervisor Calhoun County Jail guard charged with batteryBy ZACK McDONALD747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY The State Attorneys Of ce will prosecute a Calhoun County Jail guard for the misdemeanor battery of an inmate, of cials announced Monday. Deputy Christopher Doyal is charged with one count of battery against inmate Ventura Brown. Investigators said evidence shows Doyal used excessive force without lawful justi cation during an altercation in Browns cell on Feb. 24. The State Attorneys Ofce also has video and audio evidence of the incident but would not release those les Monday. In the report, Investigator Jimmy Nolan said the video clearly shows Doyal swinging at Inmate Brown, but witnesses did not report seeing Doyal actually hit Brown. In Browns account of the incident, Doyal began punching him the face with keys he had in his right hand, chipping his front tooth, before he was taken to a local hospital. Inmates in neighboring cells recounted hearing Brown pounding on his cell door and yelling before Doyal appeared to investigate the disturbance. Brown told investigators that a day earlier he slipped on a wet oor and hit his head. He was yelling for his prescribed medication because his head was hurting. And he was using profanity toward Doyal, investigators reported. During the altercation, Brown was on the phone with his wife. He put the phone down, stepped back from the door and put his hands behind his back when Doyal arrived, he said. Browns wife could not make out what happened from there, she told investigators, but Brown said the door ew open and Doyal took a swing at him, which he sidestepped. At that time, Doyal pushed Brown against the wall then onto his bunk and began choking him before Doyal eventually punched him in the face with the keys, he said. A trustee inmate, Christopher Phillips, said he and other inmates were eating when Doyal came around asking who was beating on the door. When Doyal went into the cell, they heard hollering and ran into the hall to see. He watched Doyal detain Brown to his bunk but did not see either man throw a punch, he said. Phillips said, before separating the two, he heard Doyal say: What have I done to you, what have I done to you, a couple times, Nolan reported. Brown was taken to a local hospital for treatment to his injuries and is detained in the Jackson County Jail. TALLAHASSEE (AP) Floridas economy is showing signs of continued recovery, but a new analysis prepared by state economists also points to some problems. State economists on Monday released a 29-page snapshot looking at everything from wages to housing prices and unemployment. The good news: Florida was ranked 13th in 2013 in personal income growth and had a rate that exceeded the national average. Growth rates also are returning to more typical levels and consumer condence is improving, as is building permit activity. But the effects of the Great Recession will linger for a few more years. Economists estimate normalcy will not occur until 2016. It will take a few more years to climb completely out of the hole left by the recession, states the report prepared by the Of ce of Economic and Demographic Research. The report, for example, noted Floridas average wage is dropping further behind the average wage in the United States. Economists said Floridas average wage dropped to 87.7 percent of the average U.S. wage in 2012. Gov. Rick Scott consistently has touted the drop in the states unemployment rate as a sign his push for tax cuts and reduction in regulations has aided the state. The states unemployment rate is 6.2 percent, which is below the national average. But the state report notes the drop in Floridas unemployment rate has been helped by people dropping out of the labor force, or people who have not begun seeking work. The states real unemployment rate would be 6.9 percent if participation had held steady since December 2011, of cials said.Report says states economy recovering but problems remain Like us on WASHINGTON COUNTY NEWS/ HOLMES COUNTY ADVERTISER Special to Times-AdvertiserAuto-Owners Insurance announces the Sims Insurance Agency in Bonifay has been named one of the Top 10 growth agencies for the Company in the Tallahassee Region for 2013.

Wednesday, APRIL 2 2014 By BARBARA DENMANSpecial to The Times-Advertiser BONIFAY Hundreds gathered from all denominations of church throughout the Panhandle as the 2014 State Evangelism Conference was hosted at the First Baptist Church in Bonifay on March 27-28. Each day, Florida Baptists will be encouraged and equipped by dynamic speakers and teachers from across the country, said David Burton, lead strategist the Florida Baptist Conventions Evangelism Group, which sponsors the event. The conference was in two locations this year to increase accessibility for all Florida Baptist pastors. Our pastors are extremely busy these days meeting needs of their congregations, Burton said. Conferences in two locations will make it easier for them to attend and not be absent for as long from their church eld. Also, travel and accommodations are expensive, and this will help ease that burden. The theme of the two-day meeting was Love-Share, focusing on the Conventions Love Your Neighbor, Share Christ evangelistic emphasis. An evangelism conference with a clear focus on reaching others for Christ is critical because so often, we nd churches and pastors losing their edge and heart for evangelism, Burton said. Too many books, authors and conferences tell us what doesnt work today without ever showing and telling what does work. Sometimes, complacency sets in the people our pastors are serving. We intend to have a pastor return to his church with fresh, new energy, insight and compassion to help these people push back darkness and lostness. The Panhandle conference in Bonifay featured Garland; John Sullivan, executive directortreasurer of the Florida Baptist Convention; and Craig Conner, pastor of First Baptist Church in Panama City on Thursday night. The Friday night session offered Sullivan, Maynard and Herb Reavis, pastor of North Jacksonville Baptist Church in Jacksonville. Also on the program was Robert Bradow with Cross Heir Out tters, a nondenominational Christian ministry reaching outdoorsmen with the Good News through sportsman banquets, beast feast and outdoor expos. From the reports I have received, pastors who are serving in the Panhandle region many who are ministering in small and rural communities are excited to see an evangelism conference with discussions and speakers geared to their unique setting, Burton said. During the two events, panel discussions and seminars was led by pastors of Florida Baptist churches that are effectively reaching their communities for Christ. The Bonifay meeting also featured Phillip Herrington, pastor of First Baptist Church in Live Oak; Shelly Chandler, pastor of the host church; Jackie Watts, pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church in Madison; and Ken Harrison, pastor of Northside Baptist Church in Ponce de Leon. Other seminar leaders were Ron Lentine, pastor of Myrtle Grove Baptist Church in Pensacola; Shawn Johnson, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dowling Park; and Rich Kincl, pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Tallahassee. Throughout the meeting, ministry exhibits designed to help churches increase their evangelistic activities were on display including the Strength Team, illusionist Brock Gill and CrossHeir Out tters.

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Washington County News Extra ORLANDO (AP) Florida is a politically divided state. The Republicans have won the last four gubernatorial elections, but the Democrats have carried the state in the last two presidential elections. One U.S. senator is a Republican, while the other is a Democrat. The Democrats hold a slight edge in voter registration. But that narrow divide becomes a chasm in Floridas congressional delegation and in the Legislature. Sixteen of Floridas 26 U.S. representatives are Republicans, with one vacancy that will almost assuredly be lled by a Republican. Republicans also hold a 26-14 advantage in the Florida Senate and a 76-44 margin in the state House. Some Democrats argue that the discrepancies are caused by gerrymandering the Republican-controlled Legislature drawing districts to give the GOP an unfair advantage, which would be illegal under Florida law. But two political science professors say the discrepancies arent so simple or nefarious they have used the Sunshine State to popularize their argument that large concentrations of Democrats living in cities have given Republicans a redistricting advantage not just in Florida but nationwide. Jowei Chen of the University of Michigan and Jonathan Rodden of Stanford University say no amount of reforms to eliminate gerrymandering is going to change an inherent bias based on where people live. Human geography plays a far greater role in generating electoral bias in the United States than commonly thought, they wrote in an inuential 2013 paper. Reformers in Florida have tried to stamp out gerrymandering. They successfully convinced voters in 2010 to approve two amendments to the Florida Constitution that would reduce the opportunities for lawmakers to make legislative and congressional districts that benet one party over the other. The amendments require districts to be compact and contiguous whenever possible and to follow existing city and county boundaries. They also prohibit attempts to diminish the chances for minorities to elect a candidate of their choosing. Chen and Rodden argue that Democrats tend to live in densely-populated cities while Republicans are more evenly scattered throughout suburban and rural areas. They also argue that Democratic precincts tend to be next to other highly-Democratic precincts, more so than Republican precincts, which tend to be located in politically mixed neighborhoods. As a result, Democrats tend to be tightly packed into fewer districts than Republicans. Republican-dominated districts tend to be more diverse than Democratic precincts since pro-Republican rural areas often include Democrats in small cities to reach the population threshold needed to create a district. In Florida, this translates into highly Democratic districts along Floridas southeastern coast in and around Fort Lauderdale, Miami and West Palm Beach. Meanwhile, Democratic precincts in interior cities like Ocala, and college towns like Gainesville and Tallahassee, are swallowed up by more rural, Republican districts, essentially drowning out Democratic votes. When compact, contiguous districts are imposed on this geography without regard to partisanship, the result will be a skew in the distribution of partisanship across districts such that with 50 percent of the votes, Democrats can expect fewer than 50 percent of the seats, Chen and Rodden wrote. Despite having new redistricting standards in place, reformers felt the congressional plan illegally favored Republicans and incumbents and diminished the opportunities for minorities to elect representatives of their choice. The reformers, led by the League of Women Voters of Florida, have sued the Florida House, hoping to invalidate the current congressional and state Senate plans and prevent the current districts from being used in any future elections. The lawsuit is pending, and the Florida Supreme Court ruled in December that legislators can be forced to testify in the lawsuit, setting aside a long-standing privilege that legislators usually enjoy. Deirdre MacNab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, said the new amendments are giving voters more choices. With regard to the House seats, Floridians have already seen a signicant increase in the numbers of competitive districts, she said. Geography inuences redistricting in Florida Guinea Pigs are friendly and playful animals, and they can make for a wonderful addition to your family. However, there are always things to consider before welcoming any new pet into your home, and guinea pigs are no different. In honor of March being Adopta-Rescued-Guinea PigMonth, here is some information on these uffy friends to help you decide if they are the right pet for you. As with any pet, it is important that you have enough time to incorporate pet ownership into your everyday schedule. The responsibility of caring for a guinea pig should not be taken any less seriously than that of a dog, cat, or any other pet. Guinea pigs need to be properly groomed and have their cages thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis, and they require daily interaction outside of their cage. All of these responsibilities are necessities and essential for a guinea pigs well-being. Guinea pigs are generally friendly and curious animals and can make great pets, said Dr. Caitlin Burrell, a zoological medicine intern at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. It is important, however, that parents teach their children how to handle guinea pigs correctly, how to clean their cage and change their food, and how to tell if they are feeling ill. If you are bringing a guinea pig into your home as a family pet, make sure that your children are ready to take on the responsibility. Figuring pet ownership into a busy after school and weekend schedule can often be difcult for children to juggle. Adult supervision may also be required for younger children. Once you have decided you are ready to become a guinea pig parent, your next task will be choosing a breed that best suits your family. There are four types of guinea pigs commonly seen as pets: the Shorthair or English, the Abyssinian, the Silky, and the Peruvian, said Burrell. They can be found at pet stores but many shelters have small mammals, such as guinea pigs, that would love to be adopted! Most animal shelters now accept small animals that are in need of loving homes, and you could save a well deserving guinea pigs life while nding the perfect addition to your family. Guinea pigs can be housed in a variety of cages. Wire cages can be used but it is important to provide an area of solid ooring to prevent foot lesions, said Burrell. Cages can be lled with bedding materials like shredded paper or aspen shavings, but cedar and pine shavings should be avoided. Bedding material also needs to be changed regularly so that toxic substances dont accumulate. Another factor to consider when creating housing for your new pet is the location of the cage. Make sure it is safe from any other pets in your home that may view them as prey, and put somewhere that social interaction and out-of-cage play time may be supervised if you have small children. They should also be kept in a temperature and humidity controlled area and should have places within the cage that they can hide, said Burrell. As for food and diet, guinea pigs are herbivores that require a proper balance of fresh pellets, hay and fresh vegetables on a daily basis. They need lots of high quality hay to promote dental health, keep their gastrointestinal tract functioning normally, and to maintain a healthy weight. They can also be offered small amounts of guinea pig pellets and fresh veggies, but the main part of their diet should be hay, said Burrell. Additionally, guinea pigs need Vitamin C in their diet because they cannot synthesize it themselves. There are diets that have been supplemented with Vitamin C, but this can degrade rapidly as the food sits on the shelf. Burrell suggests that certain vegetables, such as dark leafy greens, peppers, or parsley can be a good source of Vitamin C as well. Rescuing a pet guinea pig from your local animal shelter could bring tremendous amounts of joy and life into your home. With the proper care and adequate attention, these small pets can earn a large spot in your heart.Boston celebrates 13th birthdayAlexander Boston will celebrate his 13th Birthday on April 4, 2014.

The contest challenged the students to create robots that could race down an obstacle course in the fastest time as well as create log books designed to document the design and build of their robots. Team Titanium from Altha High School set a course record in the nals to defeat Team Aint Care, also from Altha, by eight seconds. Gearheads from Marianna High School came in third, and Insane in the Membrane from Holmes County High School came in fourth. Bethlehems Team Wildcat won the Log Book portion of the contest, with Vernons Team Kloutz placing second and Insane in the Membrane taking third. Team Kolutz also took home the prize for Most Unique Design and the Sportsmanship award. The contest was started by CareerSource Chipola to give area educators an extra tool to use as they help youth learn how to think critically, problem solve and work as a team. Richard Williams, executive director of CareerSource Chipola, said the contest is a fun way for students to expand their classroom knowledge. Each year we are amazed by the creative designs the students develop and the way they bring those designs to life, Williams said. These students are getting hands on experience in science, technology, engineering and math in a way that allows them to do more than just read about it in a book. Anyone that thinks the youth of today dont have the tools to excel in the future needs to come to this contest next year and watch these students because they are amazing, he said. Byron Ward, Chair of Opportunity Florida, said he was impressed by the level of technical skill on display. These students have obtained the fundamental elements that it will take to be successful in whatever life brings their way. Simply put, they are winners, Ward said.

Imagine No Malaria is an effort of The United Methodist Church to eliminate malaria deaths in Africa by 2015. The AWF conference has a goal of saving 100,000 lives, or raising more than $1 million. It only takes $10 to save one life through Imagine No Malaria. Malaria is spread by mosquitoes, and $10 will buy one insecticide-treated bed net. The United Methodists world-wide partners include the United Nations Foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Global Fund. Through the efforts of the church and other organizations, deaths from malaria in Africa have been cut in half since 2010. But still, one child in Africa dies from malaria every 45 seconds. In America, we have been able to eliminate deaths from malaria. Now is the time to join together to eliminate deaths from malaria in Africa. The Outreach Team of Bonifay United Methodist Church has set a goal saving 500 lives. In dollars, this means raising $5,000 between now and June 1, but the Outreach Team prefers to think in terms of lives saved rather than money raised. If you would like to join with others in ghting this deadly disease, please send a check to Bonifay United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 477, Bonifay, FL 32425. Mark the check as being for the Malaria Campaign. Simply giving up eating out one time could save one live. In what better way can we be the hands and feet of Christ? The California condor, North Americas largest bird, is almost extinct. No longer does this majestic bird grace the skies. A few remain in captivity, and naturalists are seeking to breed them in order to reintroduce to the wild. Something else has disappeared, and few seem to notice the passing. I refer to old-fashioned saints. They were common in a former generation. Many people thought them a bit peculiar, but they were spiritual pillars of the Lords work in their day. They were the God-intoxicated souls, to use the language of that generation. They walked with God and had such rapport with Him they needed nothing exterior for support. With the passing of these saints, other things have disappeared. An obvious thing, at least for the person who reads Christian biographies, is the absence of spiritual power in the church today. Saints of a bygone generation evidenced power in their daily lives and carried an aura of Gods presence wherever they went. They unleashed spiritual energy through prayer. Gods ear seemed bent in their direction. Contemporary church leaders have exchanged this power for slick strategy, modern technology and polished promotion. Todays emphasis is on hatching programs instead of breeding saints. Few activities depend heavily on the Holy Spirit these days. We have become so sophisticated that He is not necessary in our ministries. Instead, the emphasis is on education, strategy and marketing. The saints of a former generation relied on the Holy Spirit. This was their most distinctive characteristic. A sure sign of the neglect of the Holy Spirit among todays Christians is in contemporary evangelism methods. When any one method is slavishly duplicated, you can be certain God is not in it. The Spirit-led saint of the past initiated things; he never imitated. In one of his books, E.M. Bounds makes this comment: The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men: men whom the Holy Ghost can use men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. If we learn anything from the public ministry of our Lord, it is that He was not a slave to strategy but relied on the ministry of the Holy Spirit in everything. Our Lord never relied solely on methods to do the work of the ministry. Our crowds are bigger and the offerings larger. However, the spiritual in uence of our generation is almost nothing compared with the in uence saints of the past had in their generation. It is about time that a few concerned Christians became interested in making saints to reintroduce them into the church.
