B9 Get with the times School board addresses cell phone policies By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT email@example.com BONIFAY Discussion turned to student cell phone use during the Aug. 5 meeting of the Holmes County District School Board, with board members taking on a new point of view on technology usage in schools. School board member Debbie Kolmetz asked about the cell phone policy, stating it currently shows student cell phones should be turned off or in silent mode during classroom hours but doesnt go into detail as far as where phones must be placed during the duration of the day. The state requires to let them have it on; you cant keep it away from them, said Superintendent of Schools Eddie Dixon. Teachers can still dictate whether they are turned off in the classroom or in use. Dixon also said the policies were set when they were still just phones instead of little computers. Some teachers let (students) use (phones) to do research, looking up words or concepts, he said. Were trying to use it as a foundation that they can be used as more than just phones. Kolmetz suggested revisiting the policy to update it to more modern standards. We are adjusting policy so that when students are on break or at lunch, they can use their devices, Dixon said. Were just trying to get with the times. (If a teacher) doesnt want them out, then it is up to (the teacher), but in the hallways and after lunch, well just have to see how that goes. Kolmetz also asked if the new Spanish teacher would be receiving mileage going from one school to the next on different days, and Dixon said she would not. He said the teacher would arrive at the assigned school of the day as though she was employed there, just as every teacher does. Kolmetz also asked what students would be doing on days the teacher wasnt available, and Dixon said students will utilize virtual training. I think it is unfair that one school has a full-time Spanish teacher while three have to split one, Kolmetz said. By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org BONIFAY The Holmes County Board of County Commissioners began re ning the budget for the new scal year when they met Aug. 5. As you know, last week we set our tentative millage rate at last years rate, which was 9.6605, said Chairman Monty Merchant. Merchant asked how much of the budget was cut so far and was told the amount was $110,522 to reach current millage. Commissioner Kenneth Williams asked how much of a cut was needed to reach the roll back rate of 9.4912, and he was told $177,259. Suggestions for cuts after a lineby-line budget review include reducing the janitorial contract from last years amount of $36,000 to $30,000; cutting the Baker Act budget from $25,000 to $15,000; reducing funds earmarked for contracting with an animal control agency from $80,000 to $60,000; and cutting miscellaneous items by $39,000.

For ages, dogs have had the nickname of Mans Best Friend. Although the feminist in me takes exception at the phrasing, there is much truth in the moniker. I recently lost my fourlegged best friend, Bullet, but will never forget what that friendship meant. No matter how badly I had fouled up during the course of the day, Bullet would greet me at the door as though I were a hero returning from war. And only as a true friend will do, he never would let me become too full of myself, reminding me if I didnt ful ll my obligations, such as replenishing his food and water and letting him outside when needed, there would, literally, be a mess to clean up. No doubt, he was a constant, faithful companion even on days when I felt as though I didnt deserve it. Recently, my good friends Charles and Keesha Wills realized just how blessed they are to have a four-legged family member. In their case, the familys 110 pound lab and bulldog mix, Mack, also is a hero. Recently, the Wills oldest daughter, Tori, was doing her routine chores, which include taking out the trash. Suddenly, Mack came rushing, knocking her off her path to the outside trash can. When Tori looked around to see what was going on, she found Mack screaming in pain. When the dog lifted his paw, she saw a timber rattlesnake. Tori ran for help, calling for her parents. The snake had bitten Mack in the middle of his paw, which began to swell within minutes. A call to the vet for instructions saved Macks life, but it is the life he saved that has Toris parents calling him her guardian angel. He is a prime example of the word hero, Keesha said. I am forever grateful to this wondrous creature for his act of bravery to protect my daughter. What a good boy he is, and how we love him so! The good Lord put him there at the right time. Theres no telling what might have happened had Mack not been shadowing Tori. His bravery is yet more proof of the inherent goodness and faithful love given us by our pets. Perhaps no one has said it better than author Gene Hill, better known as the Dog Man: Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless hes owned a dog. A dog can show you more honest affection with a ick of his tail than a man can gather through a lifetime of handshakes. Im grateful for the Bullets and Macks of this world. They certainly make it a better place. OPINION www.bonifaynow.com Wednesday, August 13, 2014 A Page 4 Section HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?

My editor took a picture of a gift recently sent to me by someone who read my article and found out I like Transformers. It was a wonderful surprise. Swimming in a sea of stars I believe the best image that comes to mind is the scene from Wall-E, when he and Eve were soaring through space, surrounded by stars. Thats what it feels like to work in Washington and Holmes counties. It has been such an honor because I have the pleasure to meet some of the most amazing individuals and witness some of the most astounding acts of sel essness, love, courage and compassion Ive ever known in my entire life. Every life is like the light emanating like a star and some shine so very bright. They are found in our everyday people, our men and women who protect and serve, our law enforcement, our emergency medical services, our military, our teachers, our friends, our neighbors, our coworkers and our family members. You never know where these acts of valor will come from; it comes from the best of us and it comes from the unlikeliest of us. Sometimes we even surprise ourselves at how much we can accomplish if we just keep the faith and then we end up being a source of strength for others who witness our struggles. The most recently being how the community has come together to help aide local resident Sharon Harris with raising money to help with her medical, travel and other expenses after she found out she had stage two colon cancer. From far and wide people gathered to show their love and support. So many smiling faces and she couldnt stop crying because she was constantly being showed how much she is loved by others. What amazing medicine that is. In the face of every tragedy the community always seems to come together to support one another. Thats one of the reasons I love working with the Relay for Life. Time and time again it seems that someone we know and love is diagnosed with cancer but the amazing part is the way people choose ght back. It is an intense sense of comradery that stirs the heart and soul. I have seen it in the face of sacri ce of our men and women of law enforcement, like with the loss of Holmes County Correctional Of cer Colonel Greg Malloy, who was killed in the line of duty while pursuing a vicious murderer. Even I take for granted that these ne men and women are prepared to put their lives on the line every day for the safety and welfare of those they serve. I worry and pray for my friends who chose to work as correctional of cers because their line of work is also hazardous. I cannot tell you how many times my faith has been renewed by witnessing those around me overcoming what seemed impossible or witnessing miracles. Like the amazing recovery of kidnapped 7-month-old Shannon Dedrick almost ve years ago. I remember waiting for hours outside a home with Washington County law enforcement and even though it had been so long since we got word they still remained optimistic. They were and are very admirable. It is also seen in those who do for the community without requiring anything in return. Like the awesome services provided by the IFAS Extension Of ce and local health departments with their classes and programs, which Im really excited to be gathering information to present to the public soon. I get excited with prospect of having something useful to share. Theres also the local churches and organizations that help provide food to local families who are struggling to make due. One well known is Shepards Gate in Sunny Hills, who feeds hundreds of people on a regular basis. Caryville and Esto are also making efforts to help feed their local families. Theres also a personal favorite, which is the tireless efforts provided by our local libraries to provide information resources and internet service to students, children and families alike. I also would like to give a shoutout to those who go off, better themselves and then come back to provide services to their hometown people, like Dr. Patrick Hawkins with Hawkins Family Medicine and Kevin Russell with the Spanish Trail Playhouse and Vernon High School Drama. I know there are a lot more people who have left and returned with valuable knowledge and resources but those are the two that come to mind at the moment. I know while I lay in bed tonight I will recall even more people because they have all made a difference in my life. I count myself most fortunate to have been a part for these events as a servant of the community. I have never ceased to be amazed by those around me, in every little act of kindness, in every choice to take a stand, little by little people both great and small are making a difference every day, I only wish that I had a chance to cover them all and share them all with others. I was surprised recently with a gift from a reader. Someone who didnt know me except for the work of my words and chose to share with me something of interest. I cannot express just how much this act has moved me. There are so many wonderful people who are trying to make a difference and more than anything I want to play my part too. Thank you again for spending a little time with me and I look forward to seeing you again next week. CECILIA SPEARS Cecilias Sit Down Are we listening to Gods word? Dear Editor, I have a question. Has everyone or anyone noticed how many young people have tattoos all over their bodies? My question is: Do they know this is mentioned in the Bible? Is it that they dont know, or they simply dont care? It seems to be accepted more as time goes on. Homosexuality also is accepted a lot more today than years ago. Do these folks know that this is an abomination to God? The Bible says without repentance, homosexuals will not enter the Kingdom of God. Yet, today, homosexuals are in the priesthood of modern day churches. I am not judging the person because God has also said, Lest ye be judged. I am, however, judging this ridiculous lifestyle. Im wondering if we as a Christian-based community have paid attention to what God instructed. Why? Because God has, and I am just repeating Him. My last question is: Are you? Bobby Padgett Chipley Thanks for sharing churchs history Dear Editor, On behalf of the congregation of the First United Methodist Church of Chipley, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for your special coverage of the current sanctuary restoration project. So many people have expressed to me how much they enjoyed reading the history of the church and viewing the historic photos that you published. Your articles certainly sparked interest throughout the community in our efforts to ensure that the historic Methodist Church remains a vital part of Chipley and Washington County. I have received nothing but positive reviews from your readers. I consider our county to be blessed that you are now the editor of our hometown newspaper. We, as congregants of First United Methodist, af rm our belief in the saving Grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as we continue to serve Christ by serving others. It is our desire to bring others into the loving fellowship and covenant with Christ our Redeemer. We pray that this beautiful edi ce which was constructed well over one hundred years ago by our forefathers of the faith will remain a beacon of love, of light and loyalty for all who pass our way. I certainly look forward to working with you again soon on projects that are of interest and value to the folks of our county.

According resident Gail Tate, mother of ve, the re started before 5:30 a.m. at their residence at the intersection of County 163 and Peacock Lane in Westville. I woke up coughing around 5:30 this morning and smelt something like smoke, Gail said. I open the door to the kitchen and it was nothing but a wall of ames. I managed to get my son, Samuel, out and called the re department but it couldnt be saved. Arriving at the scene to help battle the blaze were volunteer re departments from Pittman, Pine Log and New Hope. Gail Tate lived with her husband, Steve and two sons, Samuel, 18, and Isaac, 12. She said of all the possessions she lost, the one she would miss the most was a portrait of her son who died 14 years ago at the age of 12 to complications of cerebral palsy. Thats what hurts most, she said. I know God has us handled because He is an almighty God. Theres valleys and hills and God will provide. She said believes this was the third of a series of arson attempts on her home in the last several weeks. In the rst, a lit bottle of accelerant that was thrown under the house, but was contained with damage only to one window and the second was a lit bottle of accelerant thrown through the kitchen window, burning a portion of the kitchen. The incident is currently under investigation by the State Fire Marshal and no information regarding the incident has been released as the investigation is ongoing. American Red Cross was present to provide the family with a stay at a local hotel for several nights as well as a debit card in the amount of $650 to help with immediate needs. Holmes County DOCKET REPOR T
Holmes County years ago ... REFLECTIONS www.bonifaynow.com Page A8 Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Recently, Fred Howell offered to get me a copy of his Howell family book which his sister Charlotte has compiled so that I could write about something other than my family. (Actually he was much more tactful than that.) But I havent received the book yet so here I go with another family story. When I learned early this summer that our youngest granddaughter, 17 year old Ginny, was scheduled to leave June 15 for Kansas City, Mo., for 10 days of intensive training for a ve week mission trip to South Asia with the International Mission Board, I was astounded. No one asked me for my permission. World tensions are such that we cant even publicize the location of their mission. But I learned that two groups of four young women each and their leaders would be going to the region as tourists to engage people in conversation with the express purpose of allowing them to practice their English skills and in the process, give them the gospel of Jesus Christ. After training, the group boarded a plan in Los Angeles for the 27 hour ight to Singapore where commuter ights carried them to their destination, a large city in SE Asian archipelago. Their hosts were Southern Baptist Missionaries already on the eld. Other than visiting a community center in the city where all ages gathered and meeting nationals, they spent one week in what was called a village, but Ginny said we could call it a town. There they taught English and Bible in a Christian School. In both the city and the village, they found the people to be very friendly and open to conversation. Since they stood out with their fairer complexions, they were hailed everywhere they went with friendly greetings, picture taking sessions, and invitations to go to the zoo, to go shopping or to eat, sometimes in their homes and sometimes in the restaurants or the street vendors which lined every street in the city except the residential. I asked Ginny to tell me about the best most memorable thing she recalled. She was teaching a class of 16 or so year-olds. The director of the school had requested that they talk about relativism. She had learned that the government is a republic with presidential system and that religious freedom is limited to six recognized religions: Islam, Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism. Citizens must carry a card with their declared religion on it and it is illegal to evangelize or proselytize. However, there is free discussion of religion among the people and they in no way felt threatened for sharing their faith. In the Christian school she assumed that all or most of the students were Christian. In explaining relativism to the teenagers she talked about the fact that the leaders of all other religions were dead or never existed except the Christian faith. Jesus lived, was crucied, buried, and rose again, so the founder of Christianity is the only one who is alive and the only way to eternal life. Many of them bowed their heads or covered their eyes but one boy raised his hand and said, You are wrong. I am Muslim, Buddhist, and Christian. This made her realize how much the Christian message is needed and solidied her belief that she was in the right place. Most schools teach a second language, usually English, other than Bahasa which is loosely structured like the society. Word order doesnt seem to have much signicance. Their desire to practice their English makes them more open to Americans. Their literacy rate is 93%. We worried about their safety in a foreign land so I asked Ginny if they were afraid or felt threatened. She said the openness of the people and their desire to protect them made them feel safe. In addition, they had been drilled beforehand how to conduct themselves. Police were not much in evidence. There seemed to be no trafc laws. People in the villages (towns) seemed to be more concerned with laws. What was the most unpleasant thing to you? I asked. The smells. Their hotel was a fth oor walkup. It looked modern and clean on the surface. But underneath, it was dirty and smelly. Rotten fruit, cigarette smell, even in the linens. Everyone smoked. Everywhere even in the restaurants. Ginny is too young to remember that it was just a few years ago The American Cancer Society sponsored a campaign to outlaw smoking in restaurants in Florida. I circulated many of those petitions. The tropical foliage makes the city and the country with its mountains rising in the distance, very beautiful, but trash is everywhere, especially in the poor parts of the city. And they burn trash right beside the street. One of her most unpleasant memories was going to a seven oor enclosed market where you were shoulder to shoulder with other shoppers with no ventilation. Though they didnt get to do too many touristy things, the rafting on a river in a rain forest was a memorable event as was the visit to the zoo where she rode an elephant and a camel. Culture shock? Ginny was more shocked coming back to the U.S. with our abundance of Stuff. We have so many choices for the same product. Going to this location with its natural beauty and meeting the friendly people with their oral traditions as well as the bonding with the team of young missionaries made this long arduous trip involving 10 international airports worthwhile. Ginny would not trade the experience and it no doubt sealed her determination to make some type of missions her life work. 50 years ago 1964 RAIN SLOWS CONSTRUCTION ON HIGH SCHOOL GYM: Recent heavy rains have slowed construction work on Holmes County Highs new gymnasium at the corner of Iowa Avenue and Tracey Street, just north of the high school building.

B2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Extra Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Special to the Times-Advertiser Motorists heading to the gas pumps are nding the cheapest August gas prices since 2010. The national average price was $2.74 on Aug. 1. Average prices on Aug. 1 were $3.52 in 2012 and $3.71 in 2011. The current average of $3.50 is 3 cents cheaper than the week before, and the discount at the pump should continue in the near future. Typically, gasoline prices uctuate in July and August, but for the most part, prices have steadily declined, said Mark Jenkins, AAA spokesman. Oil prices decreased dramatically this week, so theres no reason gas prices should go up any time soon. In fact, if these conditions continue, prices could eventually slip below $3 a gallon by the end of the year. However, unexpected renery outages, a spike in oil prices or the mere threat of a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico could cause gas prices to rise. Oil prices plummeted in late July. The price for a barrel of WTI settled at 97.88 on the NYMEX on Aug. 1, $4.21 compared to the week before. That was the biggest weekly decline in seven months and the lowest settlement since February. Reneries are running at record levels, and there is more than enough gasoline in the market, which has helped bring down prices despite multiple overseas conicts. The current average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Florida is $3.41. That is the cheapest price since February. In Georgia, the average price of $3.40, the cheapest price since March. Tennessees average price of $3.27 is also the cheapest since March. Ca ndida te s should ha ve prior ex perienc e in a sales en vir onmen t along with high school diploma or equiv alen t.

Special to the Times-Advertiser Douglas Blake Dykes of Syfrett and Dykes Law Ofces in Panama City is one of 165 lawyers statewide and the only lawyer in the 14th circuit who recently earned Florida Bar board certication, a designation that places him among the only group of Florida lawyers who may use the terms specialist, expert or B.C.S. for Board Certied Specialist when referring to their legal credentials. Dykes earned board certication in civil trial. Board certied lawyers are evaluated for professionalism and tested for expertise. Board certication evaluates attorneys special knowledge, skills and prociency in various areas of law, professionalism and ethics in practice. About 4,600 of Floridas 99,000 lawyers have earned board certication. Florida offers 24 specialty areas for board certication, more than any other state. Board certication is one of the highest recognitions a lawyer in Florida can receive, said Florida Bar President Gregory Coleman. The very difcult testing and extensive background peer review to conrm professional conduct is such a high standard that less than 5 percent of our total membership has achieved this level of recognition. All boardcertied attorneys should be extremely proud of their accomplishment. Board of Legal Specialization and Education Chair Jack Pelzer said board certication is a signicant career milestone. Members of the public may feel condent that when they speak with a boardcertied lawyer, they are speaking with an expert in the eld, Pelzer said. Board-certied lawyers are set apart because their expertise and professionalism have been objectively veried through rigorous examination and peer review. The Florida Bar annually awards board certication in two cycles, effective June 1 and Aug. 1. Board certication is The Florida Bars highest evaluation of attorneys competence and experience in one or more of the 24 areas of law approved for certication by the Supreme Court of Florida. Florida Bar board-certied lawyers have demonstrated ability and experience in their elds and professionalism within the legal community. A lawyer who is a member in good standing of The Florida Bar and who meets the standards prescribed by the states Supreme Court may become board-certied in one or more of the 24 certication elds. Minimum requirements for certication are listed below; each area of certication may contain higher or additional standards. A minimum of ve years in law practice. Substantial involvement in the eld of law for which certication is sought. Satisfactory peer review from other lawyers and judges to assess competence in the specialty eld as well as character, ethics and professionalism in the practice of law. Satisfaction of the certication areas continuing legal education requirements. A passing grade on the examination required of all applicants.

Folsom Prison Blues written and recorded by Johnny Cash If you recently received a card from your broker postmarked in Hawaii, you may have helped send him there. A broker at an investment conference stated in a luncheon recently that he would never consider leaving his rm. Why? someone asked. The vacations, he said. Every year, depending on how many annuities I sell, they send my wife and me to a place weve never been. Last year we went to Rome. The year before we took an Alaskan cruise. This year were going to Paris. And its all free. When markets tumbled in 2008 these trips were downsized or cancelled. Now, though, in concert with recent bullish markets, complimentary vacations to resort destinations are once again on the rise. Some educational sessions are usually hosted at conferences now, to lend some professional credence to the trips. A recent article in the WSJ is entitled Wall Street Revives Reward Junkets for Top Brokers. The accompanying photo reveals beachside cabanas at the RitzCarlton Kapalua. In late April, a few hundred of Morgan Stanleys top stockbrokers and their spouses jetted off to Hawaii for a gathering spiced with golf, deep-sea shing and suntanning, writes Corrie Driebusch. When they arrivedthe rst perks of their all-expenses paid trip were waiting for them GoPro cameras and Maui Jim sunglasses Perhaps nothing else delineates so clearly the difference between brokers and fee-only advisors. If an advisor is being rewarded by his parent company with a lavish vacation for reaching a certain plateau of annuity sales, or for steering client investment dollars into parent company mutual funds, he will naturally aspire to please the parent company, which provides his income. The problem is that investing in an annuity or the rms parent company mutual fund may or may not be in the clients best interest. The client may wonder: Is the advisor selling or recommending this product because its good for me nancially, or because it earns him more points toward a year-end vacation? This is one of the reasons why brokers are not duciaries and fee-only advisors do serve as duciaries to their clients. The duciary advisor maintains a legal obligation to act in the clients best interest. Independent, fee-only advisors have no parent companies. Thus, they are not rewarded with vacations, salary, benets or perks from a company which nancially benets from the sale of certain nancial instruments. Fee-only advisors sell no products. Every dime of an independent, fee-only advisors income is derived from client fees, and thus, his focus is on his clients, not on packing a suitcase. Margaret R.

You may remember the name Daniel Evans as the latest upcoming local Christian rap artist. Evans, from Chancellor, Ala., is described as a promising hip-hop artist whose singing roots originated from his local church, Daniel Evans has been singing his praises to God using old-school hip-hop beats combined with modern crunk for that contemporary vibe. Evans said he grew up in Fort Walton Beach but now has a home in Chancellor, Ala. I started writing songs at a young age, I accepted the Lord at a young age, but always liked rap, so I decided to start writing Christian rap, because I felt that God could use me to reach people through it, Evans said. I quit doing it for a while, because I got out of church for a while and got depressed and discouraged because I thought I was a failure to myself, God and others. At one point in time I did not thank God could still use me I was inspired to write this song called, also the title to my album, Nothing Going to Stop Me, and started back writing because my Dad said you use to rap, and you use to tell people about The Lord, and that motivated me to start back writing, going back to church, rapping and telling people about the Lord as well as getting back in the studio and record. He said the thing that keeps him going is his mother and his familys prayers. Its the joy and the happiness I bring all my family and friends when they listen to my music or see me perform, Evans said. And its the doors God keeps opening for me to get my message out as Im just His willing vessel, but it also brings me joy to rap and its something I love to do. Evans has released two new singles, called Ministry on the Mic and God is Your Protector. He has also self-published a book of poetry called Overcoming Adversity. I never believed that I would write a book of poetry when I rst started, Evans said. I did them for myself, to get me through these rough times in my life. It wasnt until later that I realized that these poems might help someone else come through their time of darkness and despair, so that they too can overcome their adversities.

Register SUBMISSIONS Send obituaries to news@ chipleypaper. com Obituaries This week is a hallmark in the lives of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me. Forty-three years ago this week, we began a journey that has just become better with each year. That is the benet of marrying up. Getting married was not something I had put together. Very few men put together their wedding plans. After all, that is why we get married. It came to me rather suddenly. I was at Bible college and one morning one of the guys in the dorm said to me, Congratulations. I just heard the good news. I smiled and nodded my head thinking about my plans for the day. I had no idea what he was talking about and at the time I did not have the time to ask him what he was talking about. Everybody I met that morning was congratulating me and telling me how happy they were for me. Soon I was beginning to wonder what in the world was going on. I did not have any test in any my classes yesterday so it could not be anything like that. I do not play the lottery so I could not have won the lottery. I could not think of anything I did yesterday that would cause all of this congratulatory remarks in my direction. Finally, when I had about as much as I could take, I asked somebody, What is everybody congratulating me for? The person that I queried looked at me, broke out in laughter and said, Man, you got to be kidding! Then he turned around, walking away laughing every step of the way. I went to my class, found my seat and got situated then one of the young ladies passed by, patted me on the shoulder and said, I am so happy for you and I think it is a wonderful thing. And I know you are going to be happy for the rest of your life. Well, I had had it. I looked at her and very rmly said, What are you so happy about? Your wedding, she said laughing, youre getting married. Oh, I said, nodding my head. Thank you very much. Then what she said dawned on me. I looked at her and said, Im getting what? Silly boy, she said, laughing hysterically, its all over campus so it must be true. I then had to think about this situation I was in. Everybody on the campus knew I was getting married, except me. Was I still sleeping? Was this just a dream I am having? I began to think about the events the preceding evening, and remembered a little conversation I had with the girl I was now supposed to be getting married to. In the course of our conversation, as I remembered it at the time, she said something to the effect, Wouldnt it be great to get married. As I recalled the conversation, I nodded my head and said something to the effect, Yea, I guess it would be. That was the end of the conversation as far as I was concerned, but the beginning of an ongoing conversation as far as someone else was concerned. Why is it that the groom-to-be is always the last one to know? Then I asked one of the girls in the hallway, When am I getting married? At the time, I did not have the foggiest idea. She turned away laughing and muttering to herself something to the effect that I had a really good sense of humor. Believe me, I was not laughing. As it turned out, me and the young lady I was to be married to, were engaged to be married and, I do not want to pry into this point very much, the wedding dress already purchased. As it turned out, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Looking back over life, most of the good things that have happened to me were never of my doing. Im convinced that is the way God works. If you are doing what you want to do, you are probably not doing what God wants you to do. At least I have developed that philosophy to this point of my life. Some things in life I am rather good at planning, a wedding not being one of them; not even close. After all these years, I can still remember that wonderful day when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were united in holy matrimony. Our wedding was rather simple and the focus point of the wedding was the wedding vows. When I said, I do it clinched the deal, and I was married and I have been doing it ever since. I have said many words in my life, and written thousands and thousands of words, but the most important words that have changed my life were those words, I do. The Bible has a lot to say about marriage and husbands and wives. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it (Ephesians 5:24-25). There are some empty words that we use every day but every once in a while we say a word or two that lls our life with joy unspeakable and full of glory. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att. net.

Local B8 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, August 13, 2014 Anal gland disease common in pets The anal glands in a dog or cat are residual scent marking organs, responsible for the production of an odor that identi es the individual and marks his stool to establish territory. Similar to the glands of a skunk, the anal glands are typically expelled when the animal defecates, or sometimes when they feel stressed or relaxed. Anal gland disease can include one of several medical issues involving the anal glands. The most common form of anal gland disease is impaction, where the contents are not expelled normally, said Dr. Alison Diesel, lecturer in dermatology at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. In this situation, the animal may require assistance from a veterinarian, veterinary technician, groomer, or owner to have the anal glands expressed. Other medical conditions of the anal gland include infections, abscesses, or even cancer. One of the most recognizable symptoms of anal gland disease is when the animal scoots, or drags their hind end on the carpet, grass,or other surface. Malodor and frequent licking also are good indicators. If an infection, abscess or cancer is the cause of disease, exudate may be noted from the anal gland or tissue surrounding the anus, Diesel said. Depending on the particular disease, treatment options are highly variable. If you are concerned that your dog or cat might have anal gland disease, you should schedule an appointment with your pets veterinarian to have them evaluated and discuss recommendations for the particular cause of disease. For impaction, periodic manual expression of the anal gland contents may be suf cient, Diesel said. Sometimes, changes in diet may help with the disease, or at least from expression being required quite as frequently. If it is discovered to be cancer, then surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy may be the appropriate treatment, depending on the speci c type of cancer. For infections and abscesses, having the area clipped and cleaned by a veterinarian is generally helpful, Diesel said. Additional medication such as antibiotics (either oral medications, or infused into the anal gland) may be required. In general, there is no way to prevent anal gland disease in your pets, aside from having them surgically removed. However, this is not typically recommended, as it is a bit aggressive for an animal that isnt showing signs of anal gland disease. Additionally, there is the potential for complications associated with the surgery including fecal incontinence, stricture formation (leading to potentially severe constipation), or poor wound healing, Diesel said. As well, this would not prevent medical problems which may mimic anal gland disease including parasites, allergies, or other types of cancer. Athough anal gland disease is a fairly common pet health problem, it is recommended that you consult with your veterinarian to establish the safest and most effective treatment method available for your pet.
