If School board silent in face of accusations By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County District School remained silent as three residents gave speeches lled with accusations during the public hearing portion of the boards June 17 regularly scheduled meeting. Opening the hearing of the public was Veronica Smith, who was also present at the June 3 meeting. Again, Smith addressed contradiction in funds the school board agreed to contribute toward the Bethlehem High Schools Junior Beta trip to Nationals. She explained the board approved to contribute $250 per student who attended the trip but then reimbursing a lesser amount. (The boards contribution amount) was veri ed and conrmed in January before it was ever announced to these students or their parents, said Smith. During the meeting held two weeks ago, $250 is the amount said to be given. When I spoke of the original $250 per student, the chair of the board and Rusty Williams both spoke up and nodded in verbal agreement that this is the amount to be given. Apparently, (Superintendent of Schools Eddie Dixon) was the only one aware of the change, and it was done without the approval vote of the board. Smith went on to ask Dixon why it was changed only three weeks prior to the trip. Man pulled from springs dies By CAROL KENT 638-0212 | @WCN_HCT Ckent@chipleypaper.com A man who was pulled from Ponce de Leon Springs on Saturday has died. The Holmes County Sheriffs Of ce identi ed the man as David Allen McCartt, 50, of DeFuniak Springs. Witnesses report McCartt was seen easing himself into the water from a sitting postion shortly before the incident. Destin resident Cynthia Foss, who was at the springs with family from Bonifay, says she was the rst to administer CPR. None of us really saw him struggle, said Foss. He just sort of slide in, and the next time I saw him, he was being pulled from the water. A park ranger said he was pulled from the underwater cave, which is a good 20 feet below the surface. McCartt was taken to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, where he died Monday. Judge Fensom seeks re-election Staff Report Circuit Judge Jim Fensom is seeking re-election to the 14th Judicial Circuit. First appointed in 2006 by then-Gov. Jeb Bush to ll an unexpired term, Fensom won the seat with no opposition in 2008. Fensom was born and By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Bonifay City Council approved to sign the interlocal agreement sent by the Holmes County Board of County Commissioners during the June 24 meeting after recommendation from City Attorney Lucas Taylor. The interlocal agreement is an agreement between the county and the City of Bonifay as to the percentage the city receives from the gas tax collected, which is currently 10 percent. It is the same as the agreement signed in 2007 and youve got one of two choices, Taylor said. One is to accept the 10 percent and two is to decline to sign and accept the percentage based on an equation of travel expenses of the city versus the travel expenses of the county. I can assure you, with that calculation what youd be looking at will be less than 10 percent.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, June 25, 2014 educated in Port St. Joe before attending the Uni versity of Auburn, where he met Jan, his wife of more than 40 years. He went on to gradu ate from the Florida State University College of Law and worked for State Rep resentative Billy Joe Rish before serving as Legisla tive Assistant to Congress man Don Fuqua. He later completed Florida Judicial College. As an attorney, Fensom has tried more than 100 jury trials in his 30 years of local practice, and at age 32, he argued and won a land mark property case in the Florida Supreme Court. He also has the distinc tion of having tried the rst case in the state that al lowed television cameras in the courtroom and prac ticed as an Assistant State Attorney in Panama City.

He is also a member of the Judicial Nominating Committee for the First District Court of Appeal. Fensom says despite his varied experience, that closest to his heart is his work with abused and ne glected children. Over the course of my career, I have placed more than 300 at risk children into safe, loving families, Fensom said. I worked closely with the Guardian ad Litem program and was able to reduce the time frame for adoptions. He was recognized by the Florida Supreme Court for his work in that area, which resulted in a record number of adoptions. FENSOM from page A1 Middlebrooks Park in Bonifay.

Scott Watkins with Brumicon proposed an emergency app for the City of Bonifay that would allow city employees access to law enforcement at a push of a button at no cost to the city. The city agreed to table the issue until Taylor could review the details thoroughly. Council member Roger Brooks in formed the council even though they are no longer under a franchise agreement the residents were still having issues with the cable company, Mediacom, continually rais ing fees and having horrible service. He said even though the city sent letters, nothing was done to improve services, the only recommendation was to get another provider and stated this matter only to be placed on the minutes for record. Brooks also informed the city council to be prepared for a large number of people coming to Bonifay during the weekend, with hundreds attending the baseball tourna ment on Saturday, June 28 and thousands attending the Panhandle Patriotic Celebra tion on June 29. Both being held at the Boni fay Recreational Center. The next scheduled meeting of the Boni fay City Council is set for 6 p.m. on July 14. youre not registered to vote, you are missing out on a great privi lege and a signicant personal freedom. Casting a vote allows you to express a choice among candidates who wish to become government leaders. She added that it is up to the voters to learn about each candidate so that an informed decision can be made. Even when the outcome of an election may not be your desired outcome, if you vote you have voiced your opinion, said Morris. When you support the electoral process you let candidates know that they must be held account able to the public.

CANDIDATES from page A1 BONIFAY from page A1 During the last meeting, you stated that only travel expenses and hotel ex penses are covered for all ball teams attending State Championships, said Smith, addressing Dixon. The Junior Beta would gladly accept the same treat ment in lieu of $250 promised per student, if that is an option. You understand that this act shows you, Mr. Dixon, on public record as being unfair, unsupportive, un reliable and dishonest to some of Holmes Countys top AB honor roll students. Smith said she had requested nancial records on another group who went to the State Championships, but the paperwork was delayed on grounds of having stu dent names redacted. Weve noticed that (school board member Debbie Kolmetz) is willing to stand up for our students and issues of concern in our district, said Smith. The District has entrusted each of you school board members to act and honestly take care of issues of concern for our stu dents, and I do not understand why this isnt being done. For example, the motion has been made three times now by Mrs. Kolmetz in recent school board meetings to make the audio recordings as part of the public record online for all citizens to have access to and it hasnt even received a second. Next to speak was Holly Jones of Boni fay, who expressed concern that teachers were being threatened with termination of employment, demotion and refused re hiring if they were found to have opposing views to the current school board. Jones requested the board strengthen policies to protect personnel from any retaliation for stating their thoughts and opinions. Another issue she said she had with the board is in regards to Edgenuity, the virtual program for virtual classes taught in Holmes County schools, questioning Dixons afliation with the company in the past. Christine LiCausi of Bonifay also spoke, alleging the principal of Bethle hem High School, Stacey Thompson, isnt qualied for his position. She also alleged everyone is aware Brent Jones is being hired as Thompsons successor before he was hired and that job postings were put up during the holidays so that no one could see them. The Holmes County School Board has neither conrmed nor denied Jones hiring. LiCausi went on to voice her concern about teacher qualications, stating Hol mes County has been lax in their enforce ment of qualication requirements and practices nepotism. In my opinion, favoritism, cronyism and nepotism undermine the common good, said LiCausi. When someone is granted a position because of their con nections rather than those who have the credentials and experience, the service that person renders to the public may be inferior. These practices are often co vert and undercuts the transparency that should be a part of the hiring and con tracting process. Superintendent Dixon says there is no merit to any of the accusations made. The majority of what was said doesnt warrant a response, said Dixon. Im just grateful we are blessed to live in a coun try where people can come and express themselves whether they are with me or against me. In other business, HCSB approved: Contract for certied Waste Water Treatment/Potable Water Plant Operator Second year extension for contracts with Walker Septic Tank Services, Cross Country Exterminators, Star Fire Extin guishers, Inc., Tri-County Gas and Waste Management.

Amend minutes for June 3, cor recting a name misspelling and number correction at the request of Kolmetz, fol lowed by an approval of the minutes with amendment. Personnel recommendations.

In all those years, I never made the effort to travel back for the occasion of the Panhandle Watermelon Festival. Shame on me. Not coming out to experience something that is at the very heart of what makes our community truly unique is like owning a ne collection of literary classics and never peeking inside their pages to see what wonders they hold. While Im sure past festivals suffered no loss at my absence, I can clearly see what an experience Ive been missing. What Ive been missing, as it turns out, is plenty. Already, Ive noticed increased activity in downtown Chipley in anticipation of this weekends festivities. Seeing downtown lined with cars and bustling with activity makes me think about what potential there is in this small Florida town. Its a beautiful sight. If its been a while since youve experienced the festival, I encourage you to come out, too, as the event has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception 58 years ago. Vendors will have many goods to offer, so Ive challenged myself to wander around and try to visit each booth. Events and activities offered over these two days arent lacking in variety, either: From the free music by big name artists like John Anderson, Ashton Shepherd and Jeff Bates, to the 5K Hot Trot, watermelon auction, pancake breakfast and more; rest assured, there will truly be something for everyone. But I think the festivals best offering is what comes completely free. A chance to mix and mingle in a positive environment with everyone from your local convenience store clerk to your tax collector is an opportunity not often afforded us. Sometimes, we get caught up in peoples perceived roles and dont see individuals for who they are. Like a book used to build a library, each person in our community adds his or her own story to our life. Some are dramatic, some sad and some are downright comedic. All are classics. See you this weekend. CAROL KENT Editor R eal value at a low cost T o its credit, Gulf Coast State College once again held the line on tuition on its current budget. It should be noted that this is the third year in a row Gulf Coast has declined to raise tuition even as other institutions across the nation raised theirs a whopping 16 percent on average over the past three years, according to The College Board, a non-prot college readiness organization. However, next year almost certainly will be different as ofcials examine their enrollment numbers versus the cost of salaries, health insurance for its employees and a host of other expenses that come with running the facility. Currently, a Florida resident taking bachelor level course work at Gulf Coast pays $117.59 per credit hour, according to GCSCs website. GCSC President Jim Kerley told the colleges Board of Trustees during a recent meeting that it could raise its rate by 4 percent and still have the lowest tuition in the state. While thats excellent news, the college is faced with a worrying trend regarding enrollment numbers which have dropped steadily since a peak in 2010. Were sure college ofcials are working on solutions for this negative data point and one of them likely will be the construction of the new Science Technology Engineering and Math building on campus. GCSC got $5 million in this years state budget to help build a cuttingedge facility. Were sure a new building with top programs geared toward high-paying jobs that students nd rewarding will be a key part of the colleges strategy. We hope Tallahassee continues to listen. Another issue facing the college is salaries and insurance. This year employees received a 2 percent raise and the college absorbed a 10 percent increase in the cost of health insurance. Reached by phone on Friday, Kerley added that new GCSC professors make approximately $38,000 and that the college should look at improving salaries even more in the near future. That probably cant happen without a tuition increase and ofcials will be forced to weigh the nances of their students versus the needs of their employees. Regardless of the outcome of that debate, this community has a vested interest in the success of Gulf Coast State College. A well-trained work force can attract new employers to the area and that means more and hopefully higher-paying jobs for a community that needs them. Its often a chicken and egg problem; employers wont come to town because we dont have the desired workforce and residents see little value in getting skills for jobs they wont get without leaving town and starting over in a new place. While the education students get at GCSC is, comparatively, low cost, the value of a bachelors degree remains high. In 2012, a family that was headed by a four-year graduate had a median income of $101,909 twice the median income for families that only include high school graduates, according to The College Board. We certainly hope Gulf Coast can hold out another year or two before raising tuition but the increase, when it comes, seems understandable. Dear Editor, As a Florida resident, I am disturbed by the appointment of Andrew Hertz as the chair of Visit Florida, our state-funded tourism marketing agency. Hertz is the president and general manager of the Miami Seaquarium, which holds the distinct dishonor of keeping an orca in the smallest orca tank in North America, a tank so tiny that it is illegal under the Animal Welfare Act. Seaquariums lone orca, Lolita, was cruelly captured from her family pod as a baby. The heartbreaking footage was shown in the documentary Blacksh. She had been held captive and forced to perform confusing tricks for food for more than 40 years. And since Lolitas tankmate died 34 years ago, after ramming his head into the side of the tank, she has had no opportunity to interact with members of her own species. That is excruciating for this social, intelligent animal. I am deeply concerned that Hertzs vested interest in promoting cruel marine mammal captivity will affect his decisions at Visit Florida. There is so much to love about Florida, and so many ways to see our majestic wildlife in their natural habitats. I enjoy sharing our states beauty and fun attractions with visitors and Ive happily shared many posts using Visit Floridas slogan, #LoveFL. But I dont love cruelty to animals and I wont support any organization that does. Sincerely, Michelle Kretzer Dunedin Visit Florida appointment sends wrong message Knowledge seeker or busybody, however you wish to see it, I always seem to need to know. Know anything and everything, although I try to limit it to useful information. Just like Sherlock Holmes. Information like when to dispose of a loofa, toothbrush or nail clipper. And thats where the Internet comes in handy (and more often than not my handheld cellular telephone device). On a whim, I can ask all sorts of questions and nd the information on the Internet. Before, Id write them all down and spend hours in a library, though these types of questions are rarely ever publicized. It was in college that I really became acquainted with the phrase Google it. Shows you how far behind I was. I had Internet access for over a decade and still didnt utilize the Internet until I was in my third year of college. Thats because I always had the library, my second home lled with my closest friends, Hemmingway, Poe, King and so many others. Dont laugh, but in my journalism classes there was an entire half a semester on just Internet research alone. I know this is elementary to most but I hope that some of this information might come in handy because it can be frustrating not being able to nd the information youre looking for on the rst try. Two main points were: Use a variety of words and always, always, always check sources. The search engine known as Google, along with its cousins Bing, etc., runs off of key words or phrases. If youre looking for something use the main topic rst followed by any information that might help narrow it down. If you are searching for information on a person you can type in his name, followed by the place he is located and even a date if it is a recent article. A thesaurus comes in handy when changing up topics that can be frustrating to nd. Next is sources. It can be scary to go into unknown water when searching for information without running the risk of catching a virus or lling your mailbox with spam. When in college the biggest taboo was to use any information from Wikipedia, or as my teacher called it, Wickedpedia. It has become much better since then but at the time the website was rarely monitored for correctness and anyone could alter and change the information if they wanted to. Im not saying it is now a reliable source by any means. I still see it as questionable at best. University websites, in my opinion, are by far the best. They usually provide the latest in research ranging in a large variety of topics. Sometimes, though, it just comes down to the individual using his best judgment because it is still possible that even though it is on the Internet it can still be wrong. It is best to look at it as taking advice from a large number of different people, because in the end, the Internet is run by people. Oh, and if you were interested in the answers to the above examples, it is best to dispose of loofas every three or four weeks and toothbrushes every three months. As for nail clippers, they need replacing when the original is lost because the majority are lost before dulling. Thank you again for sitting with me for another spell. See you next week. If its on the Internet it must be true CECILIA SPEARS Cecilias Sit Down Our VIEW Letters to the EDITOR

Holmes County years ago ... REFLECTIONS www.bonifaynow.com Page A6 Wednesday, June 25, 2014 Once again, the Brock Reunion has come and gone. Held now on the Saturday before Fathers Day at Holmes County Agriculture Center, this reunion has been held continuously for over a hundred years. This is the family from which I am descended on my Dads side. His mother Hannah Melinda was one of the seven sisters and three brothers belonging to Thomas Jefferson and Nancy Jane Yates. My grandmother and her sisters used to refer to themselves as the prolic sisters as between them and their brothers there were 57 grandchildren, I think. When I was a child, the reunion was held at Brackin School where there was a spring of water for the children to dabble in while the grownups visited and gossiped. Back then, the farthest away anyone came were the family of great Annie Brock Anderson from Pensacola and possibly my grandmothers oldest granddaughter, Trudell Wells from Birmingham. That was held the rst Sunday in May and was the celebration of GreatGrandpa Brocks Birthday. It was also the birthday of his oldest daughter, Aunt Jenny Anderson. New dresses were few and far between for my sister Minnie Lee and me, and Easter was not celebrated much in the Wells family, but we could count on getting a new dress for the Brock Reunion which we also wore to New Effort on Mothers Day for the Sing. Though the time and place of the reunion have changed from Brackin to Bethel church to Holmes County Ag Center; the participants have changed, but not much else has. We gather about what would be church time if we were still meeting on the third Sunday at Bethel. There is a lot of neck hugging and Now whose girl are you? There is no formal program. Someone is chosen or volunteers to call the group to order and return thanks, and make necessary announcements. Bill Lee grandson of Della Brock Lee did the honors this year as former Washington County Judge Perry Wells voice was too weak. Bill enlisted Walton County Circuit Judge Kelvin Wells to say the blessing, but before the blessing Bill told of his neglecting to attend the reunions for several years while living out of the area. But one day, he received an ofcial document from the Walton County Circuit Court. It was a Summons to Appear without fail under penalty of law to the Brock Reunion to be held on the following third Sunday in June at Bethel Church. It was signed by Circuit Judge Clyde B. Wells. Bill said hed been careful to fulll that obligation ever since. Perry and Clyde (deceased) are grandsons of my grandmother Hannah Brock Wells and Kelvin is a greatgrandson. He proudly introduced his new heir, Clyde B. Wells II at the reunion. Other than storing up a years supply of hugs at the reunion, food is the next most important item. Though our style of eating has changed over the years, fresh peas, corn, okra and butterbeans are favorites along with ham, chicken and dumplings, and fried chicken. The chicken, though, probably came from Kentucky Fried or Piggly Wiggly or elsewhere and not chased down in the chicken yard, its neck wrung, scalded, picked and butchered for the frying pan. Each family has its specialty and I am amazed at the abundance of food that is brought by the younger generation. I cant name todays contributors. Mamas was cream style corn. She had a pot in which she cooked it and my sister Muriel carries on that tradition. Mama told me a long time ago, Dont x anything but a wagon body load of your blueberry dessert. So that is what I do. This year I asked for assistance from my daughter-in-law Judy. But the pans are still scraped clean. This year we had unexpected visitors from California who learned through DNA testing with Ancestry.com that they were related to Brocks and Yates in the area. They had met via the web Don McKinnon, the son of Pearl Bush McKinnon, Aunt Charity Brock Bushs late daughter but were glad to meet face at the reunion. Chrys Chumley and her daughter and granddaughter had traveled here for the sole purpose of attending the reunion, not knowing anyone. It seems her father and his sister who grew up in the Clearwater the area were adopted at a young age and they had been tracing his roots. His name was Boswell, and he had known that he had connections here. Although they didnt nd any specic information, they were pleased to meet so many congenial people and also to visit Bethel Church Cemetery in Washington County and nd so many familiar names they had encountered on ancestry. com. Having visitors like that made me wish that we were a little more organized in our approach to the reunion, but old, old, old habits are hard to break. My thanks to Bobby and Jean Bryant for their work in seeing that the building is ready for our use and for taking care of all the details. 50 years ago JUNE 25, 1964 56 County youth attending camp First Panhandle Produce Festival Here Today 20 years ago JUNE 22, 1994 Alleged purse snatcher lands in jail County landll owners frustrated Holmes man dies of gunshot 10 years ago JUNE 23, 2004 Local boy injured in bicycle accident Concerns over HCHS basketball voiced to School Board One killed in local wreck 5 years ago JUNE 24, 2009 Saved by a seat belt Doctors Memorial welcomes specialist Florida Legislator Big Sam Mitchell to be honored in August Brock Reunion Has Come and Gone HAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison SPECIAL TO T IME S A DVERTI S ER This photo of Panhandle Watermelon Festival Queens from days gone by was found at the Washington County News ofce.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A7 Wednesday, June 25, 2014 Special to The Times It has been said time and time again the presence of animals helps alleviate stress and benefit your overall mood. This also can be true in the workplace. As demonstrated by multiple studies, having a pet in the workplace not only lowers stress levels and encourages a productive work environment, but also helps to boost morale. In honor of Take Your Dog to Work Day, which was Friday, June 20, here are some basic guidelines to keep this a fun and safe day at the office. There is a huge body of evidence that shows having pets around is a natural relaxant, said Dr. Mark Stickney, Clinical Associate Professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. There is definitely a benefit to having a less stressful work environment. However, the increased productivity and decreased stress levels is entirely dependent on the obedience and behavior of your dog. An untrained dog that will wreak havoc on the office is not a suitable choice for this highly anticipated day. First of all, make sure you know what your office policy is on bringing your pet to work, Stickney said. With that being said, the quickest way to end Take Your Dog to Work Day is to bring in a dog that cant behave itself and will be a nuisance all day long. If you do have an obedient, well-behaved dog that wont disrupt your work day, there are still some basic guidelines to follow before letting him tag along. For instance, prior to bringing Fido with you to work, it is vital that you doggy proof your office and properly notify your fellow coworkers of his visit. Even if Take Your Dog to Work Day is celebrated at your workplace, it is still a good idea to let your immediate supervisor know that you will be bringing your pet that day, Stickney said. If you have an office, you will want to leave a note on your door explaining that there is a dog inside to avoid any unpleasantly surprised visitors or escapes through the open door. Additionally, make sure Fido has nonsqueaky chew toys to occupy him, plenty of food and water, a leash and ways to dispose of any accidents he leaves in the office. If you have a puppy or avid chewer, you will also need to make sure that all computer wires and other various cords are someplace where your dog cant get to them, Stickney said. You wouldnt want your pet to be the reason for a system-wide shut down. Ensuring that they are up to date on their vaccinations and are completely flea-free is a must. It also is recommended that you bring a copy of the paperwork proving this to work with you that day, should any concern arise. Often times, dogs that are well behaved at home will become nervous when placed in an unfamiliar environment, Stickney said. It is imperative that they are up to date on their rabies vaccines in the case that they bite someone out of fear. Just keep in mind that while you may love your dogs slobbery kisses and welcoming leaps onto your lap, a fellow co-worker may not be as big of a fan. Be mindful of others space and privacy on this day, and always make sure Fido is on a leash to prevent any complaints or accidents. As long as it is in line with your companys policy, your dog is well trained and properly socialized, and you follow some of these basic guidelines, Take Your Dog to Work Day can be a fun experience for all involved.

Washington County News Holmes County Times-Advertiser B P A GE 1 Section EXTRA Trivia Fun Wilson Casey WC@Trivia Guy.com By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com PONCE de LEON Building a life-size replica of the Tabernacle of Moses is a way of bringing the past to live, according to Pastor Jesse Spiers of the First Baptist Church of Ponce de Leon. Now sitting in front of the First Baptist Church of Ponce de Leon, visible from north State Road 81, this full size replica is 75 feet wide and 150 feet long. We knew how big to build everything because of the Hebrew term cubit, which was the length of the tip of the middle nder to the elbow of an average mans arm at about 18 inches, Spiers said. We converted that into our feet and inches, and we knew how big to build everything but the laver. Most wouldnt think it was a big deal because God didnt put measurements on it, but it is a big deal because it represents Gods Grace, which is measureless. The replica was rst built in February of 2011 and took until July 2011 to complete. It took Moses a year, but I have a degree in architectural design, Spiers said. We are a new ministry, and we started this as a community outreach. Now, the replica only takes seven to eight hours with the help of 15 people. Well over $100,000 was spent in materials alone to build it, and the labor is provided by family, church members and volunteers, Spiers said. It is very labor intensive, but it is well worth it all as we have an average of 750 people per week, some come from as far as 60 to 70 miles away easily. Our main focus is to share the gospel and edify the church. The replica is also mobile, having been set up at churches and various other places such as Fort Rucker and Baptist College of Florida. Spiers announced the tabernacle tours have been extended until July 19, with regular tours held Monday through Saturday at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tours are also available via appointment. For more information, call 419-2401 or visit their Facebook page at Pattern of Approach Ministries. More photos are available at www.chipleypaper.com in the photo gallery.

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 Extra Washington County News | Holmes County Times-Advertiser | B3 Holmes commissioners promote storm preparedness Submitted by Roger Dale Hagen Running from Sun day, June 1, through Sun day, Nov. 30, is hurricane season. The National Oce anic and Atmo spheric Adminis tration predicts a relatively inactive season this year. Last year was the quietest hurricane season in the past two decades, and 2014 looks favorable for less activity than usual. NOAA proj ects eight to 13 named storms this season, of which three to six will be come hurricanes with one to two becoming major hurricanes. During the past 10 years, the Atlantic hur ricane season has averages 16.3 named storms, 7.7 hurri canes and 3.2 major hurricanes. With the onset of hurricane season, the Holm es County Board of County Commis sioners is urging residents and visitors to be sure they have a personal protection plan that is current. Each house hold needs to have a plan that insures as much as possible the safety of its members. This is true for a family of one or a house hold of many. Holmes County has been blessed for sev eral years in not having to respond to the threat of a hurricane, Emer gency Management Liaison Commissioner Bill Parish said. Some times when things are well we have a tendency to become lax. The county commissioners want to remind the citizens of Holmes County to not let their guard down. Be sure you have a personal safety plan. While this years forecast is for a light to moderately active season it only takes one storm strike to make it a bad season locally, he said. The Board of County Com missioners recogniz ing the severe physical, economi cal, and emotional dam age hur ricanes may cause, encourages the public to take precau tionary measures by hav ing a plan and familiariz ing themselves with safety measures for the home. The threats from a hurricane can be car ies. A storm may or may not reach hur ricane strength but be a system with heavy rains that drop multiplied inch es of rain in the area causing stream and river ooding and lots of road damage. A stronger system might be drier but the wind dam age and tornadoes from it could damage or destroy homes and buildings while toppling trees. Parish said Along with the threats Parish mentioned there is also the threats of power outages, dis ruption of fuel distribu tion, shortages for food,, water, ice and sanitary facilities. Anyone needing in formation on hurricane safety can all the Hol mes County Emergency Management Ofce at 547-1112, stop by the ofce at 1001 East Highway 90 or visit www. orida disaster.org/ DEMpublic.asp. AMN Tiffany Laurie recently was awarded the Air Force Distinguished Graduate award for having the highest grade average in the client systems 3D131 PDS code XT4 class at the 81st training command, 336th training squadron at Keesler AFB, Miss. She also completed the AT certication course. After spending 12 days leave in Chipley to visit family and friends, she will report to the 48th TFW Lakenheath AFB in England. Laurie is a 2013 graduate of Chipley High School. Kiwanis to bring back the hype to rodeo AIR FORCE DISTINGUISHED GRADUATE AWARD By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com B ONIFA Y The 70th Northwest Florida Cham pionship Rodeo is only a matter of months away, and Bonifay Kiwanis Club President Sandy Spear said the club is working hard to make it one that no one will forget. Remember all the hype we used to get with Bad Company? Spear asked. We are recreating that same hype for the 70th an niversary of the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo. This year there will be a new scoreboard and new sound equipment as well as a 9 foot by 11 foot screen which will provide video and advertising spots for sponsors. I also wanted to an nounce that we have se cured the dog and monkey act that was so very popu lar, Spear said. Were also going through other ideas to get the hype back from our local folks so theyll come out and support one anoth er. Were thinking of getting sponsors to have teams to compete in some fun activ ity, such as wild cow dress ing or mutton busting. There will be increased efforts to have a large vari ety of memorabilia for the 70th anniversary, such as shirts and rellable cups. Spear explained there are three things that make the rodeo successful sponsors, advertising and volunteers. Using volunteers helps put money back into what this rodeo is all about the kids, she said. The more money we save the more we can put back into our children. Instead of four scholarships, we could have as many as ten, or more. David Lauen reminded everyone that the Holmes Baptist Associations 11th Annual Panhandle Patriotic Celebrations is June 29 at the Bonifay Recreational Center, with gates opening at 5:45 p.m. and reworks starting at 9 p.m. Entrance, food and other items are free to the public.

Just as soon as a politician voices a position on an issue, he spins it around and it sounds like he has taken an opposite view. All that spinning has me in a whirl. It seems to me that when God ran out of brains and intellectual capacitors, He turned to an angel and said, I know what I will do. Ill make me a politician. He gathered up all the leftover dirt He could nd and threw together what we now know as a politician. I do not know if this was a joke on Gods part or if He is just trying to test us to see how much pain we can endure. The only consolation I have, and I have read my Bible over 100 times, there is no mention of politicians in heaven. Maybe that is one of the things that make heaven, heaven. I know I do not understand much that goes on in the political arena, but one of the things I have been hearing has to do with what they call, The Haves and the Have Nots. It must be important because now there is a TV series with this name. Do not dare ask me if I have watched it because I will have to tell you the truth. I Have Not. There are many things that I do not have and I am quite happy that I do not have them. I do not have an incurable disease. I do not have a debt so far above my head that I am going into bankruptcy. I do not have a table full of bills that I cannot pay. I am happy that I do not have any of these things. It could be the benet of getting old. I guess I am getting old, at least I am getting older and my plan is to get as old as I possibly can. But as a part of the older generation, I do not really need anything that I do not have. I suppose it would be nice to have a new truck, but there is nothing wrong with my old truck. It still gets me where I want to go, the air conditioner still works and the radio still plays my kind of music. Why would I need a new truck? I choose to focus not on what I Have Not but on what I really do Have. I have a wonderful wife, but do not tell her I said so, it might get me into some kind of a situation. This year we will have been married some 43 years and why she has put up with the likes of me all this time I will never know. Actually, the fact that she has put up with me all these years brings into question her sanity. I have some wonderful children and grandchildren. It would be nice to live long enough to see my greatgrandchildren, but I am not pushing that issue. I am rejoicing in what I have. The best thing that I have, the thing I treasure the most, is my relationship with God. I can identify with what David said, The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want (Psalm 23:1). What David is really saying here is that when the Lord is my Shepherd, then the reality is simply, I shall not want. The other side of the picture is true as well. If I nd myself constantly in want, maybe the Lord is not my Shepherd. DR. JAMES L. SNYDER Out to Pastor The Haves, the Have Nots and the Whatnots
