The board became interested in purchasing more property as a dirt pit after studies showed one county pit running out. The county is in need of large dirt supplies for the upcoming Federal Emergency Management Agency work in repairing roads damaged by last year and this years heavy rains. The property located was 40 acres of clear-cut land owned by Continental Forest, which offered the land to the county in the amount of $104,000 on March 17. The county countered with $92,000, and Continental Forest countered again with the offer of $98,000. After tests came back showing the dirt was suitable for the countys needs, the county took into consideration purchasing the land, leading to the approval at the most recent meeting. There is no easy answer, but Im leaning toward this being our best option, Commissioner Kenneth Williams said. The money to pay for the property was agreed to be acquired using FEMA funds. Also approved: Accepting a $120,000 Department of Environmental Protection 319 grant with an $80,000 grant match to pave between 0.8 and 1.1 miles on Old Mount Zion Road, with $30,000 of the grant match being in-kind labor from the county. This grant was years in the making, with tests showing more than 1.4 million pounds of county dirt washing into the Jackson Spring after every big rain.

It has been my privilege to serve the citizens of Holmes County, Mer chant said. I am proud of the accom plishments during my time in ofce, and there is still important work to be done. I am seeking re-election in order to continue that work. Among action taken during his ten ure, Merchant worked with local state legislators to repeal the mandate of unnecessary septic tank inspections (SB 550), worked to balance the budget without cutting essential services, low ered the millage rate and obtained grant funding for new roads and bridges. I have the experience needed to continue to lead our county in the right direction, Merchant said. As always, roads and bridges will be one of my highest priorities. During the past four years, Holmes County has received fed eral and state funding on several roads and bridges, and we will soon be adver tising for the reconstruction of County Road 2A and County Road 2 West, which will be funded from FDOT funds. County Road 177 will also be advertised for re construction in the near future, and we will soon receive federal FEMA monies to repair our roads from the ooding earlier this year. Holmes County has many challeng es ahead, he said. I have the experi ence, time and desire to deal with the issues and challenges we face in the future. Merchant is the son of Ralph and Jone Merchant of Bonifay. His wife, Lisa, who has served as a Holmes County teacher for 23 years, is the daughter of Juanita Stanley and the late Thomas Stanley of Ponce de Leon. They have two sons and reside in Ponce de Leon. POWELL from page A1 Cooling Specialists Inc. Heating and cooling has been his chosen career since he graduated from George C.

I understand the importance of qual ity management skills and how these are important for the development, manage ment and maintenance of our beautiful county, he said. Powell also said the experience he brings with him from holding a position on the Esto Town Council will give him the knowledge and condence to apply himself to the fullest on the Board of County Commissioners. I have a vision of bettering the county as a whole, Powell said. I plan to work hard with the other departments of the county to get the best possible results. If (everyone) works together as a team, ghting for the same common good, we can better our county, our local econ omy and the overall infrastructure of this county not only for us in the here and now, but for our families and for our future. Together, we will bring improvement to Holmes County. Powell is also the father of two grown sons and four young grandchildren. LAND PURCHASE from page A1 Interim director: Land ideal for the county By CECILIA SPEARS 658-4038 | @WCN_HCT firstname.lastname@example.org BONIFAY The Holmes County Development Com mission had a special ses sion Aug. 14 and approved the Holmes County Real Estate Committees rec ommendation to purchase 272 acres of land with a purchasing cap of $1.25 million in preparation for possible growth because of the widening of State Road 79. HCREC rst met at a special session Aug. 13 to review the possible land purchase, designated Site 1, before presenting it in the form of a recommen dation to the development commission the next day. Interim Executive Di rector Raymon Thomas said it was ideal land for the county because all of the property was in an en terprise zone; they were allowed up to 20 acres of small land use change from rural or agricultural to industrial per year; trees made a natural noise buffer; it has direct access to State Road 90, railroad access and possible tim ber revenue to offset cost; and it is exible to be used industrially for future busi nesses or as a possible dirt pit if need be. Members of the real es tate committee presented the recommendation to the development commission on Aug. 14, and after much discussion, the commis sion approved. Vice Chairman Sandy Spear researched two pos sible methods of payment: to pay cash for the project their interest income would reduce from $93,893 to $52,000 or to invest $1.25 million into a local bank to draw interest to offset expense. The advantages of us ing nancing options are it would not deplete assets of HCDC for future purchas ing opportunities, interest expense is marginal for size of project and consid eration of maintenance, upgrades, capital improve ments is still an unknown factor, Spear said. Financing the property was approved, and the commission agreed to al low Spear to lead a small committee of two to nd out what local nancial branch would be most suitable for aiding in their endeavor. Also approved: Survey for both Site 1 and another site in the amount of $7,000. Hiring an administra tive assistant to replace the previous one at 30 hours per week at $10 per hour with a probation period of 90 days.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A3 Wednesday, August 20, 2014 By BEN KLEINE 522-5114 | @BenKleinepcnh email@example.com DeFUNIAK SPRINGS The one candidate in the House District 5 Repub lican primary with pre vious experience, Brad Drake, already has served two terms in the Florida House of Representatives, but his GOP challenger is trying to use that fact to her advantage. Voters are clearly sick of career politicians and the same dysfunction and corruption in govern ment, said candidate Jan Hooks, of DeFuniak Springs. We need more people who arent career politicians. Mr. Drake is more likely to stand up for the party line and special interests. However, Drake, also of DeFuniak Springs, has a considerable advantage in District 5, which includes northern Bay County and all of Jackson, Holmes, Walton and Washington counties. When Florida was re districted in 2011, Drake was thrown into the same district as Marti Coley, who was later named Speaker pro tem. Instead of engag ing in a contentious cam paign in 2012, Drake opted to bow out and wait until Coley reached her term limit. I felt like Rep. Mar ti Coley, being a senior member, shed be able to go back into ofce and be in a position of authority, Drake said. I thought she would be the best repre sentative of Northwest Florida. What Drake has done in the meantime, starting in 2011, is raise a consid erable amount of money: $334,223. One of Drakes contributors was Coley, for $150. She added her endorsement. Its absolutely neces sary to hit the ground run ning, Coley said. He will vote in the interest of his district always. Drake feels one of the key issues for his district is improving highways. Drake has experience in this area, previously serv ing as the chairman for the House Transporta tion and Highway Safety Committee. Transportation and in frastructure development are absolutely critical for encouraging big job cre ators to set up shop here, Drake said. The govern ment exists for a limited purpose: one, to provide public safety; two, educa tion; three, infrastructure. That is absolutely a con servative philosophy. You dont spend more than you take in, dont overextend yourself, but you make sure you have adequate resources available. With previous legisla tive experience, Drake can point to his voting record as proof of his con servative credentials. He cosponsored the Florida constitutional amendment opposing the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act and currently opposes the expansion of Medicaid. As for oppos ing big government inter ference, Drake is proud of his role in the ght against septic tank regu lations and, when the bill was passed, the effort to reverse its effects. However, Hooks, also of Defuniak Springs, feels she is the more conserva tive candidate, pointing out Drake was a state rep resentative when a tax in crease passed in 2009. Its holding true to convictions even when fac ing unpopular options. Its not compromising prin ciples, Hooks said of the meaning of being a true conservative. We dont have enough true conser vatives in Tallahassee. Hooks works as a real estate agent and described herself and her husband as entrepreneurs. Although Hooks is a po litical outsider, she holds many of the same views as Drake. She is against government regulation, she wants to attract better paying jobs to District 5, stop the spread of Obam acare and improve educa tion in the district by end ing Common Core. One difference be tween the two candi dates is Hooks stance on immigration. We need to make sure we are not incentivizing illegal immigration with bad policy like in-state tu ition rates, Hooks said. Hooks has raised $134,535, almost exclu sively from individual contributors.

Oh, it doesnt have to be a sanctioned organization like the Lions Club or Kiwanis. In fact, I belong to several unof cial groups most recently the I Survived Back to School 2014 Society. With any luck, Ill make it into the 2015 group as well. Cmon, parents: Raise your voice with pride and submit your clothing size so T-shirts can be ordered. We deserve a pat on the back for not skipping Open House or being discovered in the school supply aisle rocking back and forth in the fetal position. Smart parents began back-to-school shopping last May when children came home on the last school day with helpful notes advising what items would be needed for the following year. Unfortunately, Im not among those wise moms and dads. Supply lists brought home by my children were lost sometime between the squeals of summer-time glee and the in ux of quality time that comes with the end of school. Things certainly have changed since Mama handled this chore for my siblings and me. Her shopping list consisted of at least ve new out ts, new sneakers and a few basics: pencils, paper, glue. Now, our budget-strapped schools request items like ash drives, dry erase markers, highlighters, Ziplock bags and more. When did this start, I wonder? Will our grandchildren be asked to bring desks, chairs and chalkboards? And how about those teacher wish lists? Kleenex. Lysol. Baby wipes. Our teachers have to work more and more with less and less, so this is understandable. But why not send things they can really use during the year, such as ear plugs, unused frequent ier miles, gift certi cates to a day spa or duct tape? (Not that Im implying our dedicated teachers would use duct tape to put over a childs mouth, mind you ... there are many other uses for duct tape I think.) Admittedly, I likely wouldnt be so bitter if it werent for unprecedented events, such as last years Quest for Pencil Top Erasers. As with the Lost City of Atlantis, there seems to be a theory these are mythical items that do not actually exist. Some parents have reported sightings, however. Following the leads of fellow shoppers after a search of Washington County was unsuccessful, I possibly burned $80 of gas seeking these $1 per pack erasers in surrounding counties. It was a perilous journey indeed. Other parents shuf ed wearily by, studiously checking off their lists as mischievous imps (disguised as energetic children) popped in and out of the shopping aisles, running over toes and loudly expressing valid reasons why the red Mario Brothers folders are superior to the plain ones. Traf c was shopping cart bumper to bumper while parents made mindnumbingly slow laps around the seasonal section in hopes the one item missing from their list was simply overlooked. My one item (the pencil top erasers, of course) remained elusive, their empty shelf slots mocking me with pictures of the colorful, triangular pieces. One photo showed a gradeschool girl holding the eraser pack up, smiling with joy as if to say, These erasers are the driving force of my good grades, and because you didnt buy any, your child wont be smiling or getting As. I left, defeated. Thankfully, a friend happened to have an extra pack to share, which were promptly divided evenly among my younger children. Despite the shopping woes, we parents have the easy part the part where we ask about how the day went and help with homework. Thank God for those who do the hard part the teachers who take what we send, both children and supplies and stretch them to their full potential. CAROL KENT Editor Meet the cops who gave their lives I f you have been watching cable news, reading Hollywood celebrities tweets and listening to race-hustling opportunists, you might think that every police of cer in America has a nger on the trigger, hunting for any excuse to gun down defenseless youths. This hysterical nonsense must be stopped. The Cirque du Cop-Bashing, with Al Sharpton as ringmaster, is working overtime to exploit the deadly incident in Ferguson, Mo. That means stoking antilaw enforcement res at all costs. Are there bad cops? Yes. Does the police state go overboard sometimes? Yes. Do the demagogues decrying systemic racism and braying about assassinations know what happened when teenager Mike Brown was tragically shot and killed last week? No. Heres a reality check. Although narcissistic liberal journalists and college students all are posting Hands Up sel es in hipster solidarity with Ferguson protesters, its law enforcement of cers who risk their lives in war zones every day across the country. The National Law Enforcement Of cers Memorial Fund reports that 1,501 law enforcement of cers died in the line of duty during the past 10 years, an average of one death every 58 hours or 150 per year. These include local and state police of cers, federal of cers, correctional of cers and military law enforcement of cers. Fact: Last year, 100 law enforcement of cers were killed. On average, during the past decade, there have been 58,261 assaults against law enforcement each year, resulting in 15,658 injuries. Fact: New York City has lost more of cers in the line of duty than any other department, with 697 deaths. Texas has lost 1,675 of cers, more than any other state. Just this week, the fund released preliminary fatality statistics from August 2013 to August 2014. Total fatalities are up 14 percent, from 63 last year to 72 this year. Five of cers were killed in ambushes, which continue to be a major threat to law enforcement safety, the group notes. Among the men in uniform who gave their lives this summer: Police Of cer Scott Patrick of the Mendota Heights Police Department in Minnesota. He was shot and killed while conducting a traf c stop July 30. Patrick leaves behind a wife and two teenage daughters. Police Of cer Jeffrey Wester eld of the Gary Police Department in Indiana. Wester eld was shot in the head and killed in a July 6 ambush while sitting in his police vehicle after responding to a 911 call. The suspect previously had been arrested for domestic violence and for kicking another of cer. Wester eld, a 19-year police department veteran as well as an Army veteran, leaves behind a wife and four daughters. Of cer Perry Renn of the Indianapolis Police Department. He was shot and killed while responding to reports of gun re on July 5. After 20 years on the job, Renn chose to serve in one of the citys most dangerous areas, even though his seniority would have allowed him to take a less dangerous role. He chose to work in patrol to make a difference in the eld, Police Chief Rick Hite said at Renns funeral. Every day, Perry got out of his police car. Renn is survived by his wife. Deputy Sheriff Allen Bares Jr. of the Vermilion Parish Sheriffs Of ce in Louisiana. The 15-year law enforcement veteran was shot and killed on June 23 while investigating two suspicious suspects. Bares had been mowing his lawn while off-duty when he witnessed a suspicious car crash. When he went to investigate, he was gunned down. The assailants stole his truck as he lay dying. Hes the type of person that would give his shirt off his back to anybody, a cousin said in tribute. Anyone that knows Allen will tell you that he was that kind of person. Bares leaves behind a wife and two children. Police Of cer Melvin Santiago of the Jersey City Police Department in New Jersey. Santiago, a proud rookie cop who loved his job, was ambushed on July 13 by a homicidal armed robber. Santiago was 23 years old. After Santiagos killer was shot dead by police, the violent Bloods street gang vowed to kill a Jersey City cop and not stop until the National Guard is called out. Al Sharpton, concocter of hate-crimes hoaxes and inciter of violent riots against police, had no comment. MICHELLE MALKIN Syndicated Columnist FROM THE LEFT FROM THE RIGHT By JIM HIGHTOWER Ah, August that time of year when the going gets tough ... and Congress gets going. On vacation that is. And, to be fair, maybe Congress needs a vacation. All the stress of not passing laws and constantly thwarting any attempt by President Obama to x Americas problems seems to be straining their sanity. For starters, if you thought that, surely, partisan posturing by far-right congress critters couldnt get any nuttier, youd be wrong. Last month, the GOP claimed that all the talk about impeaching President Barack Obama is being led by guess who? Barack Obama! If youll recall, the top Republican leader, John Boehner (having discovered that the larger public is appalled that his party would even consider wasting time on such extremist nonsense) tried to do a political back ip. Impeachment talk, he fumed, is a scam started by Democrats at the White House. No Republican lawmakers, he barked to the media, are even discussing it. Boehner, Boehner, Boehner! Apparently he didnt hear Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, whos No. 2 on his own GOP leadership team, tell Fox News that he refuses to rule out impeachment. Or Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, exult that it would be a dream come true to impeach Obama, and that he has pursued advice from experts on how to proceed. Or Iowas Rep. Steve King, saying atly, We need to bring impeachment hearings immediately. How about Randy Weber of Texas, who put it unequivocally: The president deserves to be impeached, plain and simple. And Georgias Jack Kingston con rmed that: Not a day goes by when people dont talk to us about impeachment. Still, Boehner did receive some backing on his claim that no one in the GOP has given a moments thought to impeachment. The always-insightful tea party radio ranter Glenn Beck, for example, waded in with this question to his audience on a recent broadcast: Have you spoken to one person (pushing such an idea)? he demanded. No one has used the I word, he snapped. But, in fact, Beck does know one person who has: Himself! Also, Sarah Palin! And at least a dozen other likeminded sparklies on the way-out far-right horizon. Right up to the time they departed Capitol Hill to enjoy vacations that will stretch through all of this month, much of September, and a good part of October, GOP howlers in Congress were pointing to several emergency issues that needed to be addressed such as the humanitarian crisis of immigrant children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border and the growing crisis of our nations crumbling infrastructure. But ... nothing. They simply adjourned and bolted off the job. These ideological zealots are nutty, but theyre clogging the roadway, preventing any of the progress that America desperately needs. As a result, not only is the public fed up with them but voter turnout is plummeting this year as people see that the hell no faction has turned democratic participation into a farce so why bother? Put away all hope for honesty or seriousness, ye who enter the nut house presently known as Boehners U.S. House of Representatives. Their antics could be laughed off except that theyre draining the vitality from Americas democracy. By MICHELLE MALKIN Wonder of wonders: The Washington press corps woke up. Finally, mainstream journalists are onto Barack Obamas game. Their breaking-news shocker? Turns out all that hope and change stuff was just hot air. A new report from the D.C.-based press shows that gasp the White House is infested with Beltway lobbyists. Good morning, sleepyheads! According to Politicos analysis published on Monday, the Obama administration has hired about 70 previously registered corporate, trade association and for-hire lobbyists. And many of these former lobbyists work at the highest levels of government. Wait, theres more. The most transparent administration ever is playing disclosure-dodging renaming games to hide lobbyists grubby paw prints. By of cially de-registering as corporate lobbyists and morphing into consultants, counselors or advisers, Obamas K Street operators can maintain the ction of upholding the Great Agent of Changes grand ethics pledge. Remember: Back in the day, candidate Obama assailed the K Street crowd with righteous (or rather, lefteous) zeal. I am in this race to tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of setting the agenda in Washington are over, he thundered in 2007. In one of his rst executive actions, he declared that the White House had closed the revolving door that allows government of cials to move to and from private sector jobs in ways that give that sector undue in uence over government. But the reform-peddling candidate soon found it impossible to practice what he so sanctimoniously preached. Now, Obama depends on their strategic advice and Beltway wisdom. The pledge does not bar anyone with prior lobbying experience from serving in this administration, an Obama spokesman told Politico.com. Broderick has substantial experience working in the Clinton administration, on the Hill and in the private sector in a variety of capacities, as well as on the presidents campaign. We welcome that mix of experience. That mix of experience also includes veteran Beltway lobbyist Cecilia Munoz, formerly of the National Council of La Raza and consultant to the Mexican government, who now is assistant to the president and director of the Domestic Policy Council along with revolving-door bene ciaries Melody Barnes, Marc Berejka, Bradley Gillen and Sean Kennedy, all lobbyists turned Obama bureaucrats turned lobbyists again. But now the K Street president is news? Like the old saying goes: There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know. Whats wrong with the GOPs Hell no faction Press corps nds K Street president in Barack Obama
Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A5 Wednesday, August 20, 2014 By JENNIFER HARWOOD 747-5073 | @PCNHJennHar wood firstname.lastname@example.org PANAMA CITY Demo cratic voters who turn out to cast a ballot in the pri mary election will nd two contrasting candidates in former Gov. Charlie Crist and former state Sen. Nan Rich. Both have been high in the ranks and served uniquely on the spectrum of social and scal matters. Rich is more liberal and steadfast in her stance on the issues, while Crist has been a political chameleon in his transition from a Republican governor to an independent and now the Democratic Party. With so much to consider by the Aug. 26 primary elec tion, Crist and Rich provide voters with a mashup of where each stands on big issues on their campaign websites. Crists campaign largely champions middle class growth by reducing the cost of higher education and added job creation. He imagines a future of bus tling infrastructure and opening Florida to interna tional commerce. Richs platform is driven to make public education and access to healthcare top priorities, as well as making progressive strides in womens reproduc tive rights and marriage equality. To gain faith from Democrats, Crist has had to clarify past ambiguous statements on certain is sues and emphasized past accomplishments that align with his evolving leftwing views. Rich is clearly the underdog, but she has maintained a strong race on a fraction of Crists cam paign budget. Both candidates favor hiking the minimum wage, but there are differences. According to her website, Rich is a proponent of rais ing minimum wage to from $7.93 to $10.10 an hour. Crist supports a wage increase, but on no specic terms. One feather in Crists cap is facilitating the larg est property tax cuts in Floridas history and other initiatives to keep insurance costs down for homeowners. The livelihood of Florid ians is paramount in both campaigns and has a strong correlation to health status. Both Crist and Rich want to accept the $50 billion in federal funding to expand state health insurance pro grams that the Republican controlled Legislature had declined. Both candidates approve medical marijua na for certain health condi tions, but have a different resolve on abortion. Rich is rmly pro-choice and Crist has elded criti cism for a wavering po sition on the matter. He maintains hes never really changed views on womens reproductive rights and claried in TV interviews that he is personally for life, but respects a wom ans right to choose. Pre viously as governor, Crist vetoed legislation requir ing an ultrasound before the procedure and voted against a bill requiring a 24-hour waiting period in the early 90s. Both candidates sup port funding Medicaid ex pansion and other options for Floridas uninsured and under-insured. Crist has sidestepped the rhetoric about his muddled view on Obamacare, and points out his achievements to in crease funding for autism treatments and access to services for the disabled. If elected, Rich will go after proper labeling of geneti cally modied foods. Rich and Crist both look out for Floridas ag ing population. Both had supported legislation and programs to give seniors options for independent liv ing and wider prescription drug coverage. According to his website, Crist had also pushed for increasing nutrition services, ghting fraud and bolstered nurs ing home availability for the elderly. Taking another vulner able population into consid eration, Rich and Crist are both proponents of grant ing immigrant children the right to in-state tuition, drivers licenses and ac cess to low-income state health insurance. Both candidates support marriage equality at differ ent volumes. Rich aggres sively sponsored legislation to allow adoption for samesex couples and domestic partnership rights. Crist sticks to his personal view that marriage is sacred be tween a man and woman, but says he respects the right of others to marry who they love. He supports same-sex unions for LGBT people to have equal rights in the workplace. Protecting basic hu man rights extends to the environment. Crist and Rich would both gladly try to recoup the $2.4 billion in federal money Scott passed on to get a high-speed rail system going and would continue to add to road and water transportation, but hopefully not at the ex pense of the landscape and water supply. Crist is now positioned for less depen dence on out-of-state en ergy suppliers and Rich is strongly against fracking. On justice issues, Crist restored the right of nonviolent felons in Florida to vote. Rich also supports voting rights for offenders whove fullled their pun ishment and plans to knock down restrictions to voter registration. Both say they will appoint even-keeled Supreme Court justices. Rich points out on her site that Crist gave these po sitions to the most right wing conservative judges in the past. Some of Bay Countys most elevated concerns re cently have been a streak of gun violence thats fanned the gun debate and poor performance by a handful of public schools. Crist, whod strongly supported the Second Amendment in his career, has been silent in this race about his stance on gun con trol, and according to po litical bloggers, has slipped from a long-standing A rat ing from the NRA to a D in the past week. Rich is con sistently anti-gun. On education, Crists website states he wants Florida students to be at the head of the class na tionally and globally by sup porting STEM education and putting funding back into schools that Gov. Scott had cut. Rich, too, wants tax dollars funneled back into public schools, but not into voucher programs that support private insti tutions. Rich wants highstakes standardized tests to be a thing of the past. The winner of the Dem ocratic primary will face the Republican nominee in November, most likely Scott, although two littleknown candidates Yinka Adeshina and Elizabeth Cuevas-Neunder also are on the GOP primary ballot.

She has written several books for kids and young adults. She is best known for the books in The Spiderwick Chronicles series, which she co-wrote with Tony DiTerlizzi. A writing life Holly said that in eighth grade, she was lucky to be in a special class with a great teacher who required that each student write a novel. Her middle-school novel, a 60-page book with vampires and dragons, taught me I could finish something. I could make something, Holly said. After a pause in her writing during college, she told herself, If Im going to do this, I have to be serious about it. It took her about six years to write her first published book, Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale. World of writing While working on her first published novel, Holly worked for a medical journal and wrote for a roleplaying gaming magazine. She met Tony DiTerlizzi when she interviewed him for that magazine. At the time, he was an artist for the role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons. Tony had an idea for a guide to fantastic creatures. Holly and Tony began writing about that world, creating The Spiderwick Chronicles. Holly writes in her home, but does much of her work away from home. She often travels to new places, holding writing retreats with friends. Some favorites Black, like my name. Its easy to wear black clothes because everything matches.

Local Holmes County Times-Advertiser | A9 Wednesday, August 20, 2014 Special to the Times-Advertiser A rare event recently occurred in our capital city. Finley Lamar McMillan, Florida resident and longtime resident of Ochlock nee Bay, was recognized with a Grandson medal from Finleys Brigade Camp 1614, Sons of Confed erate Veterans. Mr. McMil lans grandfather was An gus M. McMillan, Captain of Company K, 6th Florida Infantry. The Camps name reects the common Con federate leader, Jesse J. Finley, for whom Mr. Mc Millan and Finleys Bri gade is named. Mr. Finley McMillan, along with his daughter, Mi chelle McMillan Kirby, and grandson, Andy Gowan, both of Tallahassee, recent ly gave a presentation about Angus McMillan to Finleys Brigade where Mr. McMil lan and his grandson Andy are members. To Mr. Mc Millans complete surprise, the bestowal of the medal by Camp Commander Kel ly Crocker occurred after their presentation. Finley will be 86 years young this Oct. 27. He was born in Marianna with family an ecdotes of his grandfather Angus being friends and an advocate for Gov. John Milton, Floridas gover nor during the war. Mrs. Kirby serves as a district director for the Florida Panhandle Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and also Chapter president of R. Don McLeod 2469 in Crawfordville. It was such an honor to pin my father and to hear my son speak of honoring his grandfathers father, Kirby said. Its all about family. Angus M. McMillan saw plenty of action during the War Between the States at Chickamauga, Franklin, Resaca, Murfreesboro, At lanta and Nashville. Cap tain McMillan was captured on Shys Hill on Dec. 16, 1864, during the Battle of Nashville and taken prisoner and kept at John sons Island POW camp in Ohio until the end of the War. Upon return to the South, Angus was instru mental in the founding of Chipley. He was a gener ous man and donated land for the building of the Pres byterian Church in Chipley, was on the educational board of trustees, and was known to give land as wed ding presents. He fathered 11 children whose de scendants extend as far as the state Washington. More information about Angus can be found at www. rdonmcleod.org.

However, with more wooded and natural areas being developed into neigh borhoods and businesses, wild animals have fewer places to reside. Birds of prey, such as hawks and eagles, can pose a serious threat to cats and other small animals, and depend ing on where you live, coy otes and mountain lions may also be a danger. Since we share our habitat with wild animals, learning how to prevent an attack can make all the difference. Supervising your pets when theyre outside is an effective way to deter predators. Even in local outlying neighborhoods, hawks, coyotes and other predators can harm pets, said Dr. Stacy Eckman, lecturer at the Texas A&M Col lege of Veterinary Medicine & Biomed ical Sciences. Stay away from nesting predators such as owls and hawks if you know where their nests are and keep your pets area clean and free of de bris or plant material that predators can hide in. Depending on the size of your pet and the area in which you live, keeping your pet in the backyard overnight might not be safe. If your pets are accustomed to being outdoors and are able to defend themselves, such as a larger dog breed, back yard housing can be suitable. However, keeping smaller animals in the backyard un supervised is not recommended. The caution with even larger dogs who encounter a predator is that they are still at risk for fatal diseases such as rabies, Eckman said. At a minimum, they will need a shelter of some sort. A good rule of thumb is to appropriately fence in your backyard or outdoor pet area to keep out un wanted visitors. Depending on the region you live in, this might include fencing with barbed wire or roll-bars on the top to make it harder for coyotes and other large predators to get over. Even raccoons have been known to attack small dogs in backyards in shel ters, Eckman said. Keep ing food bowls empty by discarding any leftover food to keep from attracting wild animals may also help. If you come face-to-face with a predator while on a walk or even in your own backyard, stay calm and never turn your back to run away. If you have a small dog or cat with you, pick them up and slowly back away. Grab the leash or col lar of a larger dog. Carrying a walking stick is a good weapon to help fend off an attack, as are sticks or rocks to throw at a preda tor if they look like theyre going to attack. Loud, frightening nois es may scare and deter predators, as will threaten ing body language, Eck man said. If your pet is at tacked while walking, seek medical care immediately. Even if there are no obvious wounds on your pet, your veterinarian will perform a thorough exam to nd any unnoticed injuries and vac cinate them for rabies. The best tip in protecting your pet from a predator is to let them outside only when you are with them, especially at night, and to keep pet food and water either inside or empty. All wildlife should be respect ed for their role in the envi ronment, and while healthy habitats need predators, you dont want your beloved pets to be the prey.

LISTINGS from page A10
When I was asked to write something for the Heritage History of Holmes County as the committee began the work about 2003, I had no idea the degree to which my agreement would lead. When Anna Padgett Wells was working on her Heart and History of Holmes County, I failed her because my participation in that work was minimal. But this week, I have been looking back at that volume and am amazed again at the amount of work that went into it and at the amount of valuable and interesting information it contains. With the help of her nephew Dan Padgett and Geraldine Kryder Clemmons, the work was self-published. An important date was omitted, the publication date, which must have been 1981. Visiting the pages of that tome this past week led me to offer some of the stories it contains as my column. Wells writes about the early families in Holmes County, which became a county in 1848. The earliest census, 1850, shows that half of the countys population was not born in Florida. This area is a pioneer area because of its late settlement. Therefore, our ancestors lived and struggled like the pioneers of an earlier era. One family my aunt writes about was neighbors of her family where she grew up in Leonia. The Ambrose Gillman and Amanda Ellis Gilman family was one of four families who moved in to the area before it was called Leonia. The Pagets, the Morrisons, the Broxsons and possibly the Greens were the other families. Mrs. Gillman was a midwife who became a great asset to the community. The nearest doctors were in Geneva, Ala., or DeFuniak Springs, a days journey there and back by ox and cart. Horseback was a little faster. Paget (Padgett)-Wells shares some of the Gillmans family stories as she was friends with their daughter, Hortie, and spent time in the home. Grandma Gillman told about moving to Florida from Alabama in an oxcart. For those of you who dont know what that is, it is a crude homemade wooden body attached to two heavy wheels pulled by an ox, or sometimes two. (The plural of ox is oxen.) Mrs. Gillman told of cutting a switch from a sycamore tree to encourage the ox to move along. When they reached their land claim, she stuck the switch in the ground, and it took root, grew and became a tree under which her grandchildren played in its shade. Another story is that they found an empty log cabin near their land and decided to move into it until they could erect their own. In a few days, they were frightened by a stranger who approached with a pointed gun. Peace? they asked. Peace, he replied. They learned that the building they were occupying was the school house. He made them welcome when Mrs. Gillman promised to keep it clean until the threemonth school term was scheduled to begin. She also told about the hard times after the Civil War. Ambrose Ira Gillman was a veteran of that war, on the souths side, I assume, since he was born in Georgia, though his family migrated from Connecticut. One couple had one coat between them. They took turns coming to church in Leonia; one would wear the coat on Saturday and the other on Sunday. Rural churches were served by a preacher who only came once a month, so services were held on Saturday and Sunday. The family would send 8-year-old Hortie to the Padgett familys grist mill on horseback with the shelled corn in a cloth bag slung across the horses back. She and Aunt Annie would play while the corn was being ground into meal. Then, Charles Padgett would divide the meal, placing the Gillmans portion back in the cotton sack. He would balance the bag on the horses back, lift Hortie into the saddle, and she would ride the mile back home with the familys supply of meal. Anna Padgett and Hortie Gillman attended Leonia School together. After schools had progressed to 4-month terms, some districts would stagger their terms so students could attend two different schools, thus getting in two terms in one year. The families allowed Anna and Hortie to walk the three or four miles to Belin School so they got to go to school eight months instead of four. Sometimes Hortie rode her horse. One day, its back was rubbed raw from the saddles slipping. Resourceful Hortie went to the outdoor toilet, took off her slip and placed it under the saddle before the ride home. She was 12 years old by then. Ambrose and Amanda Gillman are buried in Leonia Cemetery. She lived to be 96 and is probably the oldest person buried in that cemetery. Many other family stories are contained in the Heart and History of Holmes County by Anna Padgett Wells (out of print). Perhaps I will share some more of them in future Happy Corner columns.

Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, AUGUST 20 2014 B PAGE 1 Section EXTRA Candidates kick off primary with answers to your questions Mickey Locke County Commissioner District 2 Compiled by Cecilia Spears | The Extra Question 1: What would you perceive the most prominent issue facing the county is and how would you go about addressing it? The one thing I see that is an issue to the county is being fair to all residents. In my eyes theres not one person better than another. Im all about treating everyone fair and equally. Question 2: What experience are you bringing to respective position and how do you feel it will aide in your endeavors? I have served the public for more than 13 years with the Holmes County Ambulance Service. I have a passion for helping the residents of Holmes County. Being a construction business owner and handling budget and nances for the last 10 years, I feel like I have the means of being a great asset to Holmes County. Danny Powell County Commissioner District 4 Question 1: What would you perceive the most prominent issue facing the county is and how would you go about addressing it? Since beginning my campaign trail, I have had the opportunity to speak with numerous Holmes County residence. During my many conversations, it appears that one of the most pertinent concerns has been the maintenance and repairs to our roads. I envision and hope for much economic growth in our future and improving our overall infrastructure as a whole. In order to achieve this, structurally sound roads are necessary. This can be accomplished with proper management and group effort. If elected, I look forward to working with all entities to ensure this vision comes to pass. Question 2: What experience are you bringing to respective position and how do you feel it will aide in your endeavors? Eighteen years ago, I set out on an endeavor to build a business that would not only bring my family nancial security, but also; to create employment opportunities in Holmes County. Holding a position of Esto Town Council since 2004, has given me great insight on the importance of group effort to accomplish our goals. If elected, I intend to utilize the nancial and personnel management skills that I have obtained as an owner of a successful business and as mayor of Esto, to continue to better improve Holmes County. Earl Stafford County Commissioner District 4 Kenneth Williams County Commissioner District 4 Question 1: What would you perceive the most prominent issue facing the county is and how would you go about addressing it? The most prominent nancial issue facing the county is the increase in Medicaid cost share the State of Florida is pushing onto Holmes County and other counties. This is happening with most people not being aware of its signi cance. This increase is supposed to happen gradually through the year 2019 but it will be an increase of 94 percent, meaning our cost will increase about $250,000 per year. This will be devastating to our budget, because this will be another unfunded mandate from the state. Being aware of the effect that this will have on our county, I have already been in contact with our legislatures and potential legislatures about this issue trying to work on a plan to lessen the effect of this legislation on the county. I have also been in contact with the Small County Coalition and our lobbyist through the coalition trying to get support for relief by increasing the pressure from other small counties on their legislatures by seeing the effect that this is having on other small counties. Question 2: What experience are you bringing to respective position and how do you feel it will aide in your endeavors? I have 18 years of managing a multi -million dollar parts and service business and managing my own farming operation. Both of these experiences have been integral to how I manage my job as commissioner. I understand that you have to govern like a business and that you cant govern like Santa Claus. That every dollar that we spend is some taxpayers money. I try to keep that in mind to get the most value out of every tax dollar that we spend. This is important to me, because decisions made as a commissioner has a direct effect on you, the tax payer, my neighbors and all county residents, people that I see every day. By using this philosophy in governing you can always be assured that Im doing what I feel is best for Holmes County. Drew Kriser School Board member District 5 Question 1: What would you perceive the most prominent issue facing the county is and how would you go about addressing it? As I have traveled around the county speaking to Holmes County citizens, one of the most prominent issues I have sensed is a feeling of low morale in regards to education. We need inspiration, enthusiasm, and leadership at the top to help inspire a vision of what Holmes County education can be. This inspiration and vision will raise the morale of administration, faculty, staff, parents, community members and nally students. We can create a culture of learning that has a sense of meaning, purpose, and ful llment. This will improve everything our reading programs, test scores, athletics and extra-curricular involvement and overall student performance. Question 2: What experience are you bringing to respective position and how do you feel it will aide in your endeavors? Some of the qualities I will bring to the School Board to help provide vision and real solutions for our students include open and honest communication, high moral character, business experience, strong work ethic, service-oriented leadership, and a commitment to excellence. True success can only be built on correct principles. The students of Holmes County have great potential and deserve our best efforts. Sid Johnson School Board member District 5 Question 1: What would you perceive the most prominent issue facing the county is and how would you go about addressing it? One of the main issues facing Holmes County schools will be nances. We as a board will have to evaluate all the options at our disposal to ensure that we have the very best curriculum for our students. This will mean that all positions will have to be evaluated to ensure that they are necessary and are not cost prohibitive for the end results our students need. Question 2: What experience are you bringing to respective position and how do you feel it will aide in your endeavors? To begin with we have had to x our nancial problem in the past by doing what I stated above. I also own my own business and have to operate within my means to experience a pro t. This takes planning and projecting what my future needs will be in equipment, employees, and raw materials. I have been very successful in this endeavor. I feel I have been a very conscientious board member always keeping not only the tax payer in mind, but the employees and most important, the students, when making nancial decisions. While on the board, we have maintained our fund balance that the state requires. Alan Justice School Board member District 3 Question 1: What would you perceive the most prominent issue facing the county is and how would you go about addressing it? One of the most prominent issues within our school district is the need to equip our faculty, staff and students with the tools and resources necessary to perform at their highest level. All schools within our district have the potential to achieve A status in regard to their school grade. I plan to work with the superintendent, fellow board members, and administration to do what is necessary to propel our schools forward to reach this goal. I will research and seek out solutions to pressing issues currently being faced by our district. You will nd me in the community, as well as our schools, talking with residemts, students, and educators gathering information about what we are doing well and what we can improve upon. Because our children are our future, I will always put the best interest of our students at the forefront of all decisions I make. Question 2: What experience are you bringing to respective position and how do you feel it will aide in your endeavors? My experience in leadership, administration, and public service has prepared me for the position of school board member. I graduated from the University of Florida in 1996 with a bachelors degree of Health Science in physical therapy. My job is analytical in nature and being on the board requires constant analysis of how we are functioning as a school district. We must make decisions that will move our schools forward. I have been in an administrative position for more than 10 years overseeing the day-to-day operations of an outpatient rehabilitation facility. Since May 2012, I have been a co-owner in this same business and am responsible for personnel, budgeting, payroll and making sure our business remains a successful and viable force within our community. I currently serve on the board at my church, the Wallace Community College Physical Therapist Assistant Advisory Board and the Bethlehem Advisory Committee. (All of these positions have) given me the experience needed to make the tough decisions sometimes necessary to ensure success. On Aug. 26, I humbly ask for your vote and, if elected, look forward to serving as your next school board member for District 3. Question 1: What would you perceive the most prominent issue facing the county is and how would you go about addressing it? The current availability of jobs in Holmes County for our children and grandchildren who are our Future is the most prominent issue we are facing. As our children graduate from High School about three out 10 stay in Holmes County. By bringing jobs in to the County our children will be able to continue to live and work in Holmes County. I would work diligently with our Chamber of Commerce, Development Commission, all Municipalities, Fellow Board Members, and search for grants that would aid in bringing in new businesses to Holmes County. Question 2: What experience are you bringing to respective position and how do you feel it will aide in your endeavors? I have worked in the Public Utilities eld for the past 40 years and for the past 20 years I have owned and operated my own business. I have served as your County Commissioner and served six years as your chairman. The knowledge and experience that I have gained through my years of service in the private sector and as an elected of cial will be invaluable in making informative decisions, balancing of budgets, appreciation of employees, ethical work practices, and policies to continue to make Holmes County a better place for our childrens future.

Fatih EVENTS A short history lesson History is a record of the past that re ects the consequences that unfolded as a result of the choices that were made because of the world views that were held. History re ects how people behaved as a result of how they thought. History doesnt just happen. Its made. People make choices based on the predictable results or consequences of those choices which will unfold in the future but will eventually become history. Our present state of affairs is the consequences of past choices and our future is determined by the choices we make today. Ideas control the world, and history is an account of how certain ideals or world views propagated by individuals controlled the direction the masses were headed in. Such individuals would foretell the consequences or the utopia that would come if people would base their choices on their ideology. Their success or failure would rest on their power of persuasion or some crisis that caused the masses to cast off previous held world views and embrace theirs. Its ones world view or if you will ones philosophy of life that determines ones thinking process and behavior. We usually study history to re ect on our mistakes and our triumphs and the choices that caused them. To say that our history is good or bad is to agree or disagree with the choices those living during that time made that made it good or bad. And actually to agree or disagree with what in uenced their choices. History is an account of the ongoing battle over the minds of the masses and records what world view at any given time held sway and how it in uenced education, politics, the arts, science, economics and every other area of the citizens life. We can learn from history. Hindsight is 20/20. We can look at the bad consequences those in the past suffered for their bad choices and to keep history from repeating itself not make those same choices. History repeats itself every time we in the present make the same choices those in the past made and we experience the same consequences they experienced. The consequences of choices never change, but we can change our choices and get different consequences. Consequences are the guaranteed built in judgments that follow our choices. Consequences are conceived the moment we choose but we meet up with them when theyre full grown. This is also called the law of sowing and reaping. History points out that America rose to greatness because of her Biblical world view. And as she turned from this Biblical world view and Christian thought form, she has gone into decline. America can make her choices based on this Biblical world view and receive Gods continued blessings or we can kick down the ladder by which we rose and suffer the evil thats sure to come. James H.

Expressions of sympathy can be made at www. jamesandlipford.com. Joyce S. Dunphy SUBMISSIONS Send obituaries to news@ chipleypaper.com People ask me questions all the time. Some of those questions I can answer, some I cannot answer and some I will not answer. I wish people would ask me questions I could answer and look good about it. However, it never happens. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage asks me questions all the time. After 43 years, I have nally gured out her questions. Most usually require one word answers. For somebody like me who spends most of his time preaching and writing, boiling an answer down to one word is something that is quite difcult. The one great thing about my wife is, when she asks me a question, she does not really want an answer, because she already has the answer. I do not know how wives have developed this kind of intellectual mystique. I have just never had the opportunity to ask her. This probably would be the main question I would ask. Sometimes, living in the dark is okay. Some people ask questions to get information. Some people ask questions to show off how smart they think they are, which, merely proves how dumb they actually are. Do not let them know that I said this, or they may have some questions for me. Then some people ask questions in order to trick you. Questions are important. Sometimes my friends (both of them), will ask me a question. The primary question is simply, What is a shooy pie? This is the kind of question I like and furthermore, I like to answer it. The trouble with a question like this is, where do you begin? With something as marvelous and wonderful as a shooy pie, where do you start to explain all of its delicacies? To begin with, a shooy pie is a slice of heaven. I am quite sure that in heaven at supper time there will be shooy pies aplenty. I know quite a few Mennonite and Amish women who, I am quite sure, are in heaven, and if they are, they will insist on making shooy pie. I do not know if it is in their genes, but I do know it is in their aprons. If anybody has ever had the wonderful opportunity of eating a shooy pie, they will know exactly what I am talking about. It is hard to explain the experience without your mouth watering so much you need a towel. To start with, the bottom of a shooy pie is sheer liquid pleasure. Depending on the woman preparing the pie will depend on how thick that bottom layer is. Once that is laid down, the next layer is a delightful mix of our and sugar and other secret ingredients. That layer seems to oat on top of that liquid pleasure. On the top is a crust of munchable delight that has absolutely no equal. Then, to set it off, there is a circular crust that holds all of this together in one magnicent pie. I am not a baker so I do not know how they put all of this together and then put it in the oven and then bring out this awesome, classical dessert known as shooy pie. Some things are so wonderful that they cannot be fully explained. Personally, I would rather not spend much time trying to answer the question, What is a shooy pie? I would preferably utilize that time delving into eating a shooy pie. That is my greatest delight. Recently I indulged this marvelous delight in the center of shooy pie country. Everybody knows that to be Lancaster, Pennsylvania. A conference was going to be there that I wanted to go to but I had many things that prohibited me from going there. All I could think about was the wonderful shooy pies I could indulge in if I went to that conference. So, I worked hard to eliminate everything that would keep me from going there. Some things are, indeed, worth ghting for. About a month before the conference was to start, I had dealt with the nal obstruction and was able to make plans to go. All I could think about was, Shooy pie, here I come. As soon as my ight landed, I hurried off to the nearest restaurant and indulged in my rst slice of shooy pie for the weekend. I am happy to say it was not my last piece. At the conference, they had breakfast, lunch and dinner and for dessert, even at breakfast, was shooy pie. I cannot tell you how many pieces of shooy pie I ate, for the simple reason I cannot count that high without taking off my shoes. A slice of shooy pie highlighted every meal. I am happy to say that they had more shooy pie at this conference than I could consume although I did my very best, I assure you. I know that life sometimes has its hard paths and things can become very difcult. That is why we need to have something to really look forward to. The writer to the Hebrews understood this when he wrote, Looking unto Jesus the author and nisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2). Celebrating the delicacies of life enable us to survive the adversities of life. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.
