Correction The item in the July 9 edition of the Holmes County Times-Advertiser “School board debates live vs. virtual Spanish teacher,” the following comment was erroneously attributed to school board member Shirley Owens: “This estimate was based on a $40,000 salary gure which could vary depending on the number of years they teach ... Then there’s health insurance that we absorb. I don’t think we should jump into it quickly.” The comment was made by school board member Debbie Kolmetz, who also moved the issue be tabled until the board could better explore their options. The Times-Advertiser apologizes for the error.

I have letters signed by the local residents that say they do not have a problem with me opening a bar.” County Attorney Jeff Goodman requested Holmes County Building Inspector Roger Williams to speak to the Board on what information he had on the matter. Williams informed the Board there is an ordinance in place with restrictions near churches and schools, which he is not and not within a 1,000 feet of a residential home, which can be waivered if the resident agrees. Another condition owner must have a valid Florida restaurant license and a restaurant that serves food “prepared on the premises.” Williams said one of the concerns Joshi has is putting expenses into a restaurant and not have the assurance that the Board will give their permission. Larry Sawyer, claiming to own 90 percent of the land around the store, came to protest Joshi’s efforts. “There’s not enough law enforcement to have a restaurant/ bar in that area,” said Sawyer. “I talked with the local people in that area and they say they’re not interested in having people drinking in that bar and then riding down public roads.

All paperwork is in accordance and there is no discrepancies.” He said that as of last year the City of Bonifay had $7.1 million in on-going debt. However, he commended Mayor Lawrence Cloud on his success in negotiating away $525,000 of that debt and his continued efforts, with the latest amount being $1.2 million. He said the debts that are unable to be negotiated away should be re nanced for a lower interest rate. The income generated from gas taxes and expenses for dayto-day operations “break even,” Galloway said. “Next I would like to touch upon your due diligence on nding the reason for the 34 percent of city water lost per year,” he said. “Whether it is uncharged water or a lot of leaks, there is no account where that water is being lost. The average amount unaccounted for is an average of 8 percent to 25 percent for uncharged water, like for re ghters to use, water fountains at parks, etc.; 34 percent is just too excessive.” Galloway also recommended that the city increase their Bonifay receives welcomed news See BONIFAY A3 By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com A Bonifay man has been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell after an investigation revealed he was receiving marijuana through the mail with intentions of distributing it. The Holmes County Sheriff’s Of ce and the Bonifay Police Department received information that marijuana was being delivered through the United States Postal Service to a residence located at 409 Rangeline Street in Bonifay. A search warrant was obtained for the residence, and officers from HCSO and BPD executed that warrant, recovering more than two pounds of marijuana and other narcotics and drug paraphernalia.

Approved: z Emergency Services Director Interim Roger Dale Hagan requested permission to use up to $3,000 of 911 funds to allow 911 Director Cliff McGowan to receive additional training, explaining there are “points not covered by the previous director due to the pressing needs after the state of emergency the county was under due to the rains.” z Consent Items: June 24 Regular Session Minutes; In surance Committee Recom mendations; Notice to Proceed Sidewalk Phase II; Metcalf Road headwall; Preble Rish Agree ment Sidewalk Project FPID 429661-1-68-01, 429660-1-68-01 NS 429664-1-68-01; Release of Lien with Legear; and FDOT Road Closure of Whitaker and Red dick Mill Road. z At the request of Commissioner Bill Parish the Board pulled Consent Item: Opportunity Florida Letter of Commitment to discuss the annual membership dues of $2,000. Commissioner Kenneth Williams explained that it afforded the county opportunities to expand that they would not have had otherwise, using the latest tower agreement as an example. Opportunity Florida has an agreement with the County to build a new tower and gave it to the County under the condition that as payment Opportunity Florida is allowed to use it for a certain amount of years, leaving a space for County usage.

County Engineer Cliff Knauer explained that he put these projects out for bid and had a large response at the Pre-bid conference.

Knauer then recommended that the Board approve to go with the next lowest bidders. Board approved Knauer’s recommendation to award the Bonifay Elementary School sidewalks to Marshall Brothers in the amount of $330,683.78; Sandpath Road from Holmes County High School to State Road 10/U.S. 90 to GCUC in the amount of $104,668.10; and State Road 90 from the entrance of HCHS to State Road 79 to Marshall Brothers for $143,575.71. z District 2 Road Foreman Position.

He explained that the income for water usage and expenses to replace the water and sewer lines were too far apart to make a difference. “The audit went very well this year,” said Galloway. After much discussion Council approved of City Attorney Lucas Taylor writing an ordinance to raise the water rates by 10 percent and sewer by four percent this year and four percent every year for three years, which at that time would be readdressed by the council to either increase or decrease. z Council agreed to allow the Bonifay City Garden Club to rearrange the large ower pots in downtown Bonifay in the club's recent efforts to continue beautifying the city. Attending the meeting on behalf of the Bonifay Garden Club was President Adonna Bartlett. Bartlett thanked the city for allowing the garden club to service the city and informed them that the club is possibly going to plant crape myrtles in the large pots. z Council approved of FRDAP Work Plan in the amount of $50,000 complete reimbursable money to x and improve the water park at Middlebrooks Park as well as the basketball court, restrooms, playground and to build an exercise trail. z Council held the rst reading of Ordinance 388, which prohibits residents and lawn care professionals from dumping excessive yard clippings and debris into storm drains and ditches. Taylor explained that he emphasized on “excessive” because the purpose of the ordinance was to stop people from clogging the drainage ways and causing massive ooding issues. He used a recent example of a ditch clogged with debris caused water to overow into someone's residency. He also recommended that a letter be sent out to all licensed lawn care professionals to give them a chance to voice their opinions at the next council meeting. z City Clerk Jeri Gibson explained to the Council that local business owner Henry Pitts was refusing to pay a deposit for water and sewer to his place of business on the grounds that his business does not have water or sewer. Council member Richard Woodham said he begged to differ, stating that Pitts used the water and sewer from the business adjacent him. Council agreed to discuss the matter further with the business owner in hopes of that an agreement be met. The next scheduled meeting of the Bonifay City Council is set for 6 p.m. on July 28.

He currently serves on the advisory board for Bethlehem School and Wallace Community College Advisory Committee for the Physical Therapist Assistant Program. Justice and Alison, his wife of 23 years, have three daughters who attend Bethlehem School and mark the fourth generation of family educated in Holmes County schools, giving Justice what he says is a vested interest in the school system from a parent‘s perspective. “I have a vested interest in our school district,” said Justice. “It is my goal to see that every student in Holmes County receives the highest quality education possible. This can be accomplished through effective communication between our administration and staff, making sure our educators have the tools and support necessary to perform their jobs, providing a safe and cultivating environment for our students to learn and fostering community support to propel our schools forward.” Justice says if elected, he hopes to “bring fresh vision and a desire to help create effective and lasting change that will further improve the quality of education.” Justice will face District 3 incumbent Jason Motley in the Aug. 26 election.

L o c a t e d a t L ig h t h o u s e M a r in a N ext t o B ud & A l le y's Special to The News A Marianna couple is facing child abuse charg es after what began as a report made by them of a burglary. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Ofce responded to the reported burglary at a Cedar Lane residence near Marianna at 11:40 p.m. Friday. Upon arrival, deputies learned the intoxicated complainants had went out for a night of drinking and told their 13-year-old son not to enter their resi dence. The 13-year-old re portedly had been residing next door with his adult sister because of family problems, but he still has all his belongings and a bedroom at the parents’ house, according to police. The child entered the residence and retrieved his PlayStation 3 to “keep himself occupied.” When the parents returned home and realized he had been in the house, they went next door, and an al tercation ensued. During the course of the disturbance, the fa ther, Norman Cooper, 49, of Marianna, reportedly punched the child in the stomach and slapped him twice. The child subse quently ed the residence. Cooper then armed himself with a claw ham mer and began chasing the child around, attempt ing to strike him, accord ing to police. Deputies say when Cooper was unable to catch him, he threw the hammer at the boy, miss ing him. Cooper then at tempted to tackle the child but missed and fell into the side of the trailer caus ing damage to the skirting, according to police.. Deputies say the mother, Patricia Cooper, 47, of Marianna, became involved in the affray by grabbing the child in a chokehold from behind, eventually throwing him to the oor. Despite the lengthy altercation, the child was relatively unharmed. After the parties re turned to their respective residences, the parents contacted law enforcement to report the child had bur glarized their home.

If you are here is some very good news for you. Did you know that that our own Doctors Memorial Hospital of Bonifay now has an I-STAT machine? Well, they do! You no longer have to ride to Dothan or Panama City to be able to have this service performed. The I-STAT machine can get all the blood needed for testing by making a pinprick in the end of any nger, and all it takes is just a few drops. If you have rolling veins, or it is difcult to draw blood from your veins, then this is the test for you! The technician in charge will call in test results to your physician. Your doctor will then call you back, same day, with results and adjust Coumadin dosages as needed. This has proved wonderful for my wife, Celedia. Gary Ayres is the technologist in charge of this service. He is assisted by Nancy Ayres, Irman Suva, Arthur DeSampardo and Emelyn Elumir. Services are provided from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m., and arrangement for working people can be provided by calling the laboratory to set up the appointment. Since the program is located in Doctors Memorial Hospital, it is especially convenient for Bonifay and Holmes County residents. Others in the surrounding area should check out this program it can be of service to you. Being able to get this service in Bonifay can have many benets for the people who use it. Examples being, less wear and tear on your vehicle and the time it takes to commute, also you’ll be able to save on gasoline; we travelled to Dothan for 18 years to have my wife, Celedia’s P.T. tested, at times we went up to once a week. You will nd the people in the laboratory very professional, kind, caring and interested in helping you, the patient. Must go now We’re on our way to Doctors Memorial Hospital to get Celedia’s P.T. tested now. Thank heavens they’re so near to us! Frederic Howell Bonifay ItIT ’S tT I mM E tT O pP RO tT E ctCT OUR BORDERS Dear Editor, The issue of immigration law change is one that needs to be put to a stop, except to make the law require that out borders be protected more and totally closed to all illegal crossing. The Obama administration and the liberals and free loaders want to keep violating our current border laws. Legal immigration is ok as it has always been, but not illegal. If it is ok to cross the border illegally, then why not drugs, murders, and etc.? Did you know that if one crosses the North Korean border illegally one gets 12 years of hard labor? If one crosses the Afghanistan border illegally you get shot. Two Americans just got eight years for crossing the Iranian border. If you cross the U. S. border illegally, you get a job, a driver’s license, food stamps, a place to live, health care, housing, child bets, education, and a tax free business for seven years. No wonder we are a country deep in debt. Legal immigrates ok. Illegal immigrates no, no. The Rev. Billy Bruner, Th. D. Cottondale I fully expected to enjoy working with Pat Aukema Dickson recently to learn more about restorations going on now at the First Methodist Church in Chipley, as well as more about the church’s rich history. What I didn’t expect was to learn I have a couple connections of my own to the century old church. My only memory of the church was of eld trips taken as a Kate M. Smith Elementary student before the Christmas holidays to learn about the Chrismon Tree eld trips that I’m told still take place today. As Dickson showed me several old photographs, one from 1907 the rst year the current church held services caught my eye. The photo showed the original parsonage, as well as another building standing next to the church. One was the original parsonage, which as it turns out, later served as the childhood home of my mother’s best friend, Patricia Harden Hardy. According to church records, Rev. G. N. Winslett began building that rst parsonage, and construction was completed during the tenure of Rev. R. C. Williams, who served as minister from 1907-1910. The new parsonage was built in 1956. After a short time being used to house Sunday school classes, the old parsonage was purchased by A.C. and Lizzie May Harden. A.C. and Lizzie May’s daughter, Patricia (Pat) Harden (now Hardy), and my mother, Martha Bowen (now Kent), became friends sometime while attending junior high in Chipley. From then on, the families would be forever intertwined. I have many fond memories of sitting at the Hardens’ dinner table, having both southern cooking and conversation. Both were served warm and with love. I marveled as a child at the many nooks and crannies, including a rather odd-shaped closet in the sitting room Ms. Lizzie May kept lled with books and toys for us kids. I stopped by for a visit when my oldest daughter was around three and noticed happily that many of those old toys were still there, awaiting the newest generation of children. My conversation with Mrs. Dickson stirred a desire to visit the home again soon and look at it with a fresh vision, one lled with knowledge of its rich history. The Oscar Butler house has a lesser connection, but one that thrilled just the same. My daughter, Taylor, became good friends with a young lady named Kimberly Butler soon after we moved back to the area. The home belonged to an uncle and aunt of Brett Butler, who is her father. Their names were Oscar and Sallie Addie Butler, and Sallie Addie is honored by her name appearing in one of the church’s iconic art glass windows. When I think of the many prayers that have been said for loved ones below those beautiful windows, I understand how their value is far from monetary, and I’m sure the Butlers, like so many others, would be pleased with their preservation. I know as soon as they’re back in their rightful but more structurally sound place, I’ll look at them each day on my drive to work. And I’ll smile as I remember the love, work, and dedication shown to this community by the original parishioners, as well as the wonderful relationships that were connected to or born from a church that had a vision.

Call 638-0212. Finding an unexpected connection CAROL KE ntNT Editor I t is a case of Supreme hypocrisy. The adjective refers to that nine-person tribunal at the top of the American legal system, the noun to its latest act of judicial malpractice. Meaning not the notorious Hobby Lobby decision handed down at the end of June but a lessnoticed ruling a few days later. We have to revisit the former to provide context for the latter. On June 30, the court ruled that a “closely held” corporation can deny employees health insurance covering any contraceptive method that conicts with the company’s religious beliefs. Writing for the majority, Justice Samuel Alito faulted the government for failing, under the Affordable Care Act, to choose the “least restrictive” means of ensuring women access to all FDA-approved methods of birth control. He pointed out that the ACA already makes an exemption for nonprot groups with religious objections; simply ll out a form certifying those objections and they are relieved from having to provide the disputed contraceptives. Alito saw this as a win-win. Employees get the birth control they want — they pay directly to the insurance company — but the government does not “impinge” the organization’s religious beliefs. Three days later,  the court issued an injunction freeing a Christian school — Wheaton College in Illinois  —   from having to ll out the certication form. The school had argued that simply doing the paperwork — the form asks only for name, contact information, signature and date — infringed upon its religious liberty because it would trigger the employee’s ability to get the disputed contraception. So the same form that the court held to be a reasonable compromise on Monday was judged an unreasonable burden on Thursday. Or as Justice Sonia Sotomayor put it in a withering dissent, “Those who are bound by our decisions usually believe they can take us at our word. Not so today.” Indeed, the malleability of the court’s logic suggests these rulings are based less in law than in the personal beliefs of the men on the tribunal. One gets the sense they chose the desired result rst, then backlled whatever “reasoning” would get them there. Which is not just Supreme hypocrisy, but also Supreme faithlessness. And, yes, Supreme sexism. I once saw a protest sign to the effect that if men gave birth, contraception would be bacon avored and dispensed from vending machines. Can anyone argue the truth in that? Would we even be having this debate if some company had a religious objection to Viagra — or vasectomies? And how far down the line must a company’s religious scruples be honored anyway? If it is too much to ask Wheaton College to ll out a form because an employee will be “triggered” to buy contraception on her own, does the school also have a right to scrutinize and approve other purchases made with the salary she earns from them? If she buys whiskey or pornography with “their” money, does the school have a right to object? Not to mention the frightening precedent the court is setting in the name of religious liberty. It makes faith a potential get out of jail free card exempting the holder from any law he nds onerous. Given that Mormons once embraced a theology of racism and evangelical Christians still deny basic freedoms to gay people, the danger of this is obvious. In its rush to confer personhood on organizations and constrain women’s choices, the court steers us toward a day in which corporate rights would trump human rights and you no longer could take for granted that you would be served by a given business without rst checking to make sure you didn’t offend the owner’s religious sensibilities. It’s hard to imagine what that world would be like. Pretty soon, we might not have to. That slippery slope LEONARD PITTS JR.

The goal of the LEL (Law Enforcement Liai son) program is to reduce trafc related fatalities and injuries by working with law enforcement agencies across the state to boost safety belt use, reduce drunk driving and encourage trafc safety violations. By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — As a change of pace the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce held its monthly meeting at a little known Fortune 500 company called LKQ in Bonifay. LKQ is a salvage com pany that started in 2001 with four employees, mak ing $60,000 in the rst month and now they have 40 em ployees and made more than $13.6 million in revenue as of last year. “The name LKQ comes from an insurance term used with estimates, stand ing for like, kind and qual ity,” said Tom Ponds Plant Manager. Ponds said the process of their business, saying that when a car is consid ered “totaled” the insurance company purchases the damaged vehicle and the ve hicle is then auctioned to be bought by salvage yards to sell parts and pieces to body shops and mechanics. “The family who bought this company was renowned for buying mom-and-pop stores to push them into the bigger industry,” he said. “You may have heard of a couple of the businesses they’ve pushed forward, such as Waste Management and Blockbuster.” After getting into the sal vage business and adding companies like Keystone and DuPont the company, LKQ, now has over 630 facili ties, 6,000 employees and is worth more than $5.1 billion. “We’re about creating revenue,” Ponds said. “You can sell anything on a ve hicle but the busted glass and plastic. Everything is revenue.” For more photos on the chamber’s visit to LKQ. visit www.chipleypaper.com Special to Times-Advertiser The Florida Depart ment of Health in Holmes County sponsored “Girls Night Out” to promote National Women’s Health week Thursday, May 15. “Girls Night Out” is a free event for women in the community.
