Crews comments on Siebert decision

Managing Editor
A member of the local search
committee that recommended re-
appointing Dr. Charles Siebert Jr.
as Panama City's nominee for the
permanent medical examiner's
commission commented Monday.
Chipley Police Chief Kevin Crews
served on that committee and voted
to re-appoint Siebert.
The state Medical Examiners
Commission voted unanimously
Saturday to reject Siebert, and
Crews was not happy with either
the decision or the process used to
make it. The local committee voted
7-1 to send Siebert's recommenda-
tion to the state.

"I'm very. disappointed in the
commission's procedures used in
the selection process," Crews said
Monday. "We took our appoint-
ments to the committee very seri-
ously, and they didn't care what the
thoughts were of local leaders on
the medical examiner's position.
"They were ready to appoint
their own ME even before our
Crews said he has worked with
Siebert and his staff for a number
of years, and the chief said he was
pleased by their work.
"I am completely satisfied with
his work and his staff's work,"
Crews said. "At no time did we
call his staff and did not get an
answer to our needs, to the point

where they would drive to Chipley
to provide the answers.
"In my opinion Charles was a
scapegoat for people seeking a po-
litical solution to recent events."
r The Panama City News-Herald
reported that the vote by the state
comission left the six-county 14th
Judicial Circuit without a patholo-
gist. Commission Chairman Dr.
Stephen Nelson said it was up to
State Attorney Steve Meadows
to appoint an interim medical
According to commission staff
members, Siebert still was the in-
terim medical examiner for the dis-
trict, but Nelson said if Meadows
kept him in office, the commission
would enforce its earlier vote to

remove Siebert. Siebert closed the
office Friday and has said he will
not continue as interim medical
Meadows said the commission's
suggestion that he appoint some-
one to fill the position on an interim
basis "is an example of the detach-
ment of the Medical Examiners
Commission from the reality of the
situation. Perhaps the commission
believes that a qualified person will
magically appear."
"We have conducted a nation-
wide search, in the manner sug-
gested by the Medical Examiners
Commission, and, at the end of
the day, Dr. Siebert was the only
person willing to accept the posi-

Fallout debated ahead of marriage amendment vote

Santa has present
to school district
The Washington County
School District Office and
the schools celebrated and
exchanged presents as is
customary during the holi-
day season.
The.Wachovia Founda-

tion was the jolliest elf of
all, according to a news
Wachovia granted the
children of Washington
County $3,000 to be used for
leveled classroom libraries.
As a result of the Wacho-
via Foundation's generosity
the county's children and

teachers will enjoy high
interest grade appropriate
reading materials in 2008
and beyond.
"It couldn't have hap-
pened to a better group of
folks." said Calvin Ste-

schools. (Submitted pho-

Report: There are
51 same-sex
couples in Holmes
and Washington

Florida Freedom
As Florida residents pre-
pare to vote on a constitu-
tional ban on same-sex mar-
riage, a new report gives one
view of same-sex couples
living in the state.
There are almost 55,000
same-sex couples living in
Florida, according to a report
from the UCLA School of
Law's Williams Institute.
According to the study there
are 24 same-sex couples in
Holmes County and 37 in
Washington County.
More than 500 same-sex
couples are living in Santa
Rosa, Walton and Okaloosa
counties, the report states.
Escambia County has more
than 600 couples.
The report states that
there are 610,000 people
who identify themselves as
gay, lesbian or bisexual liv-
ing in Florida as of 2005.
Using data from the 2000
Census, the two-year nation-
wide study "gives a picture
of the actual people who
are affected by the actual
laws," according to Adam
Romero, who coauthored the
study (http://www.law.ucla.
There is limited informa-
tion about gay and lesbian
families across the country,
so the numbers are likely
to be vastly undercounted,
Romero said in an inter-
view. .
"People don't want to
kind of out themselves
on government surveys,"

Romero said.
The report reveals that
same-sex couples live at
lower income levels and
own homes at a lower rate
than their heterosexual coun-
"That just speaks to the
importance of what marriage
might do for these couples,"
Romero said.
John Stemberger, an Or-
lando attorney who heads
the Florida4marriage.org
campaign, says that allowing
same-sex marriage would
have far-reaching social
"Same-sex marriage in-
flicts a vast untested social
experiment on children, and
that's an experiment that
we're not willing to take,"
Stemberger said.
He said social maladies
such as drugs, teen preg-
nancy and depression are
more prevalent when a father
or mother is absent.
"Children flourish better
when there's a mother and
father in the home," Stem-
berger said.
The amendment is ex-
pected to appear on the
November 2008 ballot. Op-
ponents argue that the ban is
already adversely affecting
There are 17,010 children
in Florida being raised by
same-sex couples with fewer
economic resources, accord-
ing to the Williams Institute
Both same-sex and mar-
ried couples with children
average two per household.
"Allowing same-sex cou-
ples to marry might help
to ameliorate some of this
inequality," Romero said.
"Ultimately, it's the children
that stand to benefit."
Because it creates a le-
Sgal connection, it not only
secures the well-being of
children but is a symbolic

gesture, Romero said.
"To deny kids the ability
to say 'my married parents'
is significant," he said.
Other groups fear the
amendment would affect
more groups than same-sex
couples. Because its lan-
guage is vague, it's going
to extend to any unmarried
couple, said Stephen Gaskill,
spokesman for Florida, Red
and Blue.
Many municipalities have
domestic partner registries
that are used to share benefits
for unmarried couples, gay
or straight, Gaskill said.
"It's clear that it opens up
all those protections to legal
challenge," Gaskill said.
Bentley Lipscomb, Flor-
ida's former secretary of
Elder Affairs, believes it
will hurt senior citizens.
Lipscomb said many elderly
people cannot afford to get
married because they'll lose
Social Security benefits.
"Those people choose to live
with each other because it's
what they can do," he said.
"A lot of this has no sex
involved in it at all. It's a
matter of simple day-to-day
Stemberger argues that
the amendment will have
no effect on domestic part-
"We specifically crafted
this language so it would not
interfere," he said. "Shame
on Florida Red and Blue if
they're going to try and scare
senior citizens."
Gaskill said the heart of
the issue has nothing to do
with same-sex marriage.
"The reality is same-sex,
marriage is illegal in Florida,
and whether, (the amend-
ment) passes or fails it will
still be illegal in Florida,"
he said.
"It's really a matter of
government overstepping its
bounds .

The attack on good luck

Over the past few years a
controversy has been brew-
ing about the death tax.
While a great many people
whom it doesn't effect sup-
port it, some who would
pay huge sums in this unjust
policy do as well. Bill Gates
and Warren Buffett are on
record in favor of hefty
taxes on estates that could
otherwise benefit family
members, offspring of the
Now Hillary Clinton has
jumped on the bandwagon,
and this really should be no
surprise. Although her line
of defense is kind of weird:
"The estate tax has been
historically part of our very
fundamental belief that we
should have a meritocracy,
that we do not want a system
-- where we expect people
to make it on their own -- to
be, over time, dominated by
inherited wealth."
She continued, speaking
in the characteristic fashion
of royalty (that uses "we"
without actually consulting
anyone included), saying
that "What we do believe
that people should have to
get out there and make their
way, to a great extent."
Two points need to be
made in response. One is
that those who earned the
wealth may not be coerced
into using it in ways they do
not choose.
Wealthy people such as
Gates and Buffett have every
right to give away all they
have earned, so their free-
dom and property rights are
not violated by abolishing
the death tax.
If they don't want to have
their kids get their wealth,
they can do with it as they
choose. But those who would
like their wealth to go to their
offspring and others in their
surviving families ought
not to be prevented from
doing so.
They, too, have the right
to private property, the great-
est principle in defense of
freedom of choice, a bulwark
against statism and populism
which amount to nothing less
than confiscation.
Another point worth rais-
ing is that we are all subject
to the vagaries of good and
bad luck. Some of us are
born with talents, and these
talents may well give us
a leg up when it comes to
competing with others in the
Tall people have advan-
tages that short ones lack.
Healthy people are clearly
luckier than those with in-
herited medical problems.
There simply is no end to the
inequalities of fortune and
misfortune in human life.
Those who wish to even
things out voluntarily are,
of course, quite free to make
that effort. No one, however,
has the moral and should
have the legal authority to
forcibly fiddle with the ad-
vantages and disadvantages
people have in their lives.
In a society of free men
and women this issue must
be left to the free choices of
the people involved. And,
in fact, America, which still
tends to be more in line with
the idea of economic laissez-
faire -- though only barely by
now -- has more economic
equality than do other coun-
tries because when govern-
ments are entrusted with


Tibor Machan

equalization, look out!
Bias and cronyism are
sure to dominate, which is
far worse than some "unfair"
economic advantages or
disadvantages due to inheri-
tance and other sources not
directly related to merit.
It is, furthermore, very
odd to see Hillary Clinton
suddenly champion meri-
tocracy when, in fact, the
history of her own type of
democratic politics -- popu-
lism -- has been precisely to
reject it and embrace govern-
ment wealth' redistribution
based on what politicians
and bureaucrats deem to be
Bill Gates and Warren
Buffett need not worry -- no
one would prevent them
from allocating their wealth
as they choose should the
inheritance tax disappear.
What would stop is the gov-
ernment taxing the wealth
and using it in line with the
vision of its ideological lead-
ers instead of the choices of
those who would otherwise
have the authority to use it as
they see fit because wealthy
parents decided to leave it to
them to make the decision.
Sadly, the death tax and
similar schemes of extortion
that enable politicians and
bureaucrats to allocate funds
they certainly haven't earned
-- talk about meritocracy --
appeals to the envy of many
people who simply refuse
to live with how nature and
human decisions distribute
wealth in the country.
This envy then is used
by the likes of Clinton to
grab power for themselves,
economic power they cer-
tainly didn't earn..Moreover,
this is also a source of the
expansion of economic stat-
ism whereby individuals
are deprived of their right to
choose how to allocate the
fruits of their labor.
Let's leave the wealth and
the luck to those who have it
without violating anyone's
rights. It may not always
work to everyone's satisfac-
tion, but it will certainly be
far superior to giving the
power to the likes of Hillary

Cash is now the bad guy

I love those VISA com-
mercials, the ones with the
choreographed movement
that falls apart when some-
one tries to pay with cash or
check. It's creative and fun,
and gets its message across
very well: credit good, ev-
erything else bad.
The first bank-issued
credit card was invented by
John Biggins in 1946, and
was issued by the Flatbush
National Bank of Brook-
lyn in New York. In 1950,
Frank McNamara invented
the Diners Club credit card.
Both these cards, however,
were charge cards that re-
quired the customer to repay
the amount in full when
billed. The first credit cards
were just another form of
Technology improved
and popularity of these little
time savers increased so
that today we have modern
revolving credit cards. And
of course the billions of
dollars of advertising and
mailings that encourage us
to use them.
Which brings us back
to VISA's wonderful little

commercial and a question:
When did CASH become the
bad guy?
It was probably during
one of those very commer-
cials that we enjoy so much.
VISA isn't alone in suc-
cessful advertising. Credit
companies are great at com-
ing up with slogans and
gimmicks. You know about

count for you, rounding all

Spending and saving at the
same time. How cool!
But just like Big Brother

The message of the danc-
ing commercial is all wrong.

two minutes while the ca-

customer writes a check.
Let's not forget the other
message, that it's okay to
spend money you don't
have. This may explain why
the wealthiest nation in the
world has set the national
debt ceiling at thirteen tril-
lion dollars, and why the av-
erage American has $30,000

of unsecured debt.
I enjoy the commercials,
but I don't follow the trend.
I do not own a credit card,
although VISA and CitiBank
mail me at least one offer
a week. Instead, I use an
envelope system. When
there is no more cash in
the envelope, I have to stop
Of course I wasn't al-
ways like this. I incurred
many overdraft charges on
my bank statement when I
would unconsciously swipe
my check card. There was no
keeping track for me.The $1
gas station soda doesn't taste
as great when you add the
$15 bankcharge.
So if you find yourself in
a checkout-line dance and
spot me, I'll go ahead and
apologize now. I pay with
cash, or write a check. I warn
you now because I'don't
want you to become a credit
card two-step casualty.

Tiger attacks are called 'human error' by local expert

Local experts,
including Holmes
County man, offer
differing opinions
on why the zoo
cat attacked

Florida Freedom
In a working zoo, care-
lessness and distraction are
always recipes for disaster.
That's what local experts
are saying in the wake of a
fatal tiger attack at the San
Francisco Zoo on Christmas
"To me, it's very much a
reminder safety, safety,
safety, safety," said Len

Mattox, curator emeritus
at Sasquatch Zoo in Crest-
view. "It's a big zoo with all
the resources in the world.
There's no reason for it to
happen unless it was human
Zoos rely on workers to
feed the animals and clean
the cages, and it's imperative
that they follow every safety
procedure, he said.
"When I was at Sasquatch
Zoo, once about every three
months I'd have my employ-
ees go through a drill," said
Mattox, who raised many
tigers, bottle feeding them
as cubs. "And if they weren't
on a dead run, I'd be on their
tails. If it wasn't right, we
had to go through it again
the next day."
At the Crestview zoo, the
tigers live in an 8-foot ce-

ment bedroom surrounded
by a 10-foot fence that slants
in at a 45-degree angle, he
Mattox doubts the Sibe-
rian tiger that attacked in
San Francisco intended to
kill a human.
"I would guess it was
probably a bottle-raised
baby that young curators,
kids, had played with and
had zero respect for man,"
he said.
Mattox said the tiger like-
ly had not been disciplined
properly as a cub.
But longtime tiger trainer
Josip Marcan of Holmes
County disagrees, suggest-
ing that the tiger had not
been bottle-fed as a cub.
"The tiger did not think he
was playing," said Marcan,
who owns Adriatic Animal

Attractions in Ponce de Leon
and trains tigers for circuses.
"The tiger was doing what
tigers do. It's not the tiger's
fault. It was human error."
Marcan, who has trained
hundreds of tigers for more
than half a century, said he
was not surprised when he
heard about the attack.
"It's a zoo tiger," he said.
"Zoo tigers are different
from circus tigers. A cir-
cus tiger is like a college
graduate. A zoo tiger is like
a dummy, an illiterate."
Marcan said a circus ti-
ger comes into contact with
humans every day and, in
general, is less likely to
act aggressively and more
likely to ignore a person in
its path.
He said the Siberian is no
more deadly than any other

Major cold snap
this week
The National Weather

coldest weather of the season
this week. Around midnight
Monday evening/Tuesday

ed an arctic air mass settling

extreme cold with it.
The NWS called for tem-

low-lying areas. Forecasters
predicted this same weather

Lady Tigers go to
7-4 in soccer
The Chipley girls soc-
cer team traveled to Walton
for an important district
matchup. The Tigers were
coming off a frustrating 2-1
loss to Pensacola Catholic in
a game that was called due

to lightning with 13 minutes
remaining in the game. At
that point in the game, Chi-
pley had been keeping the
pressure on offensively and
felt good about their chances
to tie and possibly win the
game against one of the top
girls programs in Northwest
Florida. On Tuesday night,

they were able to put all that
behind them and came home
with a 2-1 victory to take
their overall record to 7-4.
In the first half, Kylie
Mulrain scored off an assist
from Joanna Peters and then
reversed roles in the second
half with Peters scoring from
an assist from Mulrain.

New bill designed to deal with immigration impasse

Florida Freedom
If illegal immigration
was always a heated issue
in the area, this was the year
. it boiled over. In the com-
ing year, state legislators
will consider proposals that
would give more power and

Brown's bill would also
limit the issuing of driver
licenses and public benefits
to undocumented aliens.
Knowingly harboring an un-
documented alien would be
a first-degree misdemeanor.
It would also become an
unfair labor practice for an
employer to hire an undocu-

day a legal one was fired.

A shopping

trip to town
To begin his first col-
umn for 2008, the "Prattler"
will paraphrase the Johnny
Cash recitation mentioned
in the past two writings.
"This year's Christmas was
Heaven sent," was the senti-
ment expressed in the Wells'
household this year and,
hopefully, so was yours.
I have written previous-
ly that a shopping trip to
Bonifay at Christmas time
was a "must" in my early
upbringing. That little town
was always buzzing with
activity during Christmas.
The sidewalks were jammed
with people moving about
from store to store looking
for "Santa Claus" as the
expression went.
My Saturday afternoon
visit to Bonifay before
Christmas, found the up-
town area almost deserted.
Shoppers were still flocking
to Fred's, south of town,
Dollar Value and Piggly
Wiggly on the north end and
at Dollar General on the west
approach to the city.
Pelt's 5 and 10 cent store,
Evans, Barkers, Schnein-
berg's, Bonifay Hardware,
O.K. Williams Grocery,
Bonifay Drugs, Padgett's
Drugs and Jitney Jungle
were sadly missing from
the scene.
In the old days, Lewis
Barber Shop and the Movie
Theater stayed open as late
as other businesses in order
to accommodate the mass-
es who flocked to town at
Christmas time. Those insti-
tutions have long ago faded
into Bonifay's history.
The Wells clan held our
traditional Christmas night
get-together in Bonifay as
we have for several years
now. Our brother Clyde and
wife, Esteena, first initi-
ated the idea of having all
the family together in their
DeFuniak Springs home on
that special night. Esteena
continued the practice for
several years after Clyde's
The First Baptist Church
in Bonifay served as the
meeting place for a few
years. Now that the church
owns the adjoining former
home of attorney Clyde R.
Brown and wife, Annis,
the Wells family enjoys the
comfort of that spacious
and historic house for our
Christmas party.
Esteena, along with son
Kelvin, his wife, Amy, and
daughter Reagan, were pres-
ent. None of the offspring of
our sister Minnie made the
gathering this year. Minnie's

daughter, Janet Russ Lang,
died two years ago. On Oct.
2 of this year, Janet's young-
est daughter, Amber, died at
the age of 25. The surviving -
children and grandchildren
of Minnie did their Christ-
mas assembly in north Ala-
bama where most of them
The boys, Jim, Perry and
Max and the sisters, Hazel,
Muriel and Gail, were in
attendance along with their
spouses and a host of their
children and grandchildren.
Syrup making and Christ-
mas time always went 'hand
in hand at our house. There
was always a mad rush to
finish grinding cane and
cooking off the syrup before
Christmas. Sometimes, we
didn't finish and the process
continued on into the new
.year. :. :. ,, .. ,:

tunity to visit one 'old-time
method of cooking cane
juice into syrup. The invita-
tion came from Steve Whit-
tington and wife, Brenda.
Steve's cooking method
is by a kettle situated on a
beautifully constructed fur-
nace fired with wood. This
keeps the cooking process
moving smoothly right up to,
the finished product.
Steve's hobby syrup mak-
ing event was well attended
with many "helpers" vol-
unteering their services in
the art which'is fast leaving
the scene of our heritage.
Steve and Brenda's home
is located adjacent to the
long established residence
of his grandfather, Bascom
Whittington, which adds to
the nostalgia of seeing the
syrup making operation in
full force.
Steve's maternal grandfa-
ther, former Chipley mayor,
Marvin Engram, was mixing
and mingling in the crowd of
people who were enjoying
the cane grinding outing.
Former Chipley first lady
Elaine Engram was on the
premises but I did not get to
see her.
Assisting Steve in tend-
ing the cooking process
was Bryan Yongue, son of
Jerry and Linda Yongue and
grandson of Hubert Yongue
and Arvie Sapp Yongue.
His family background is
one well familiar to syrup
making. Phillip Deal and
son,Ross, looked on closely
and could qualify as helpers.

Clinton Jacks, a 2007
graduate of Chipley High School
and student at Troy State
University, decided to return to
college with a new look.
Jacks bundled his long
tresses into a ponytail and a
stylist snipped it off to give the
freshman a more contemporary
look. Jacks then mailed the
ponytail to Locks of Love.

What is Locks of Love?
Locks of Love is a public, non-profit organization and a Better Busi-
ness Bureau accredited charity. Its mission is to return confidence and
normalcy to children suffering from hair loss.
What does Locks of Love do?
Locks of Love provides hairpieces crafted from real human hair to
financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair
loss fiom any diagnosis. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love
have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata,
which has no known cause or cure.
What hair is acceptable for donation?
Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable.
Hair cut years ago is usable if it has been stored in a ponytail or
Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is
not usable. If unsure, ask your stylist.
Hair that is swept off of the floor is not usable.
Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable.
They cannot accept dreadlocks. Their manufacturer is not able to use
them in children's hairpieces. The organization also cannot accept wigs,
falls, hair extensions or synthetic hair.
Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches.
Layered hair may be divided into multiple ponytails.
Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10
10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a
Shorter hair will be separated from ponytails and sold to offset manu-
facturing costs. Although shorter hair cannot be used in the hairpieces,
it still greatly helps to reduce costs.
Gray hair will be accepted and sold to offset the manufacturing
How do I make a hair donation?
Hair must be in a ponytail or braid before it is cut.
Hair must be clean and completely dry before it is mailed in.
Place the ponytail or braid inside of a plastic bag, and then inside of
a padded envelope.
Fill out the hair donation form available at www.locksoflove.org, or
write your name and address on a separate sheet of paper and include
inside the envelope.
All hair donations must be mailed to Locks of Love at 2925 10th

Heartburn drugs
and heart risk
Heartburn drugs like Pri-
losec and Nexium don't in-
crease the risk of heart prob-
lems. That's the conclusion
of a review by the Food and
Drug Administration.
The FDA and its coun-
terpart ifrCanada examined
two studies from manufac-
turer AstraZeneca Plc and
14 other studies, and found
no increased risk of heart
problems, The Associated
Press reports.

Fasting may help
your heart
Fasting* once a month
might be good for your
heart. That's the finding of
a study presented at a meet-
ing of the American Heart
The study looked at data
from the Intermountain
Health Collaborative Study
on over 4,600 patients who
had chest X-rays to check
for blocked heart arteries
between 1994 and 2002.
Patients who fasted once
a month were about 40
percent less likely to have
clogged arteries than those
who didn't, the researchers
found. They saw the differ-
ence in heart risks even af-
ter taking into consideration
other risk factors such as
weight, age, diabetes, and
other conditions.
The researchers theorize
that skipping meals for a
day may force the body to
burn fat reserves and gives
the body a break from pro-

ducing insulin, possibly
helping insulin receptors to
work better. However, the
researchers say their find-
ings do not prove that fast-
ing prevents heart disease;
they say it could be that the
people who fasted control
their eating habits better,
The Associated Press re-
ports. They also warn that
fasting is not a good idea
for diabetics, and that it is
not a good way for dieters
to lose weight.

Vaccine recall
Drug manufacturer Mer-
ck & Co. this week issued
a recall for its Hib vaccine,
which is given to young
children to protect them
against a virus that causes
meningitis, pneumonia and
other infections.
The recall was announced
due to concerns about con-
tamination risks, after Mer-
ck found sterility problems
in one of its manufacturing
facilities, The Associated
Press reports. The recall af-
fects some 1.2 million doses
of the vaccine, and a short-
age of vaccine is likely in
the short-term, the AP says.
Merck says it will not be
able to supply new vaccine
for at least nine months.
Both the drug maker and the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention say the ac-
tual risk of contamination is
The recalled vaccine
doses were distributed be-
ginning last April. If they
are contaminated, most chil-
dren who received the doses
likely experienced nothing

Spay and neuter pets for health
Cats may not have nine lives, but they can sure produce
nine lives of their own plus a few thousand more.
One pair of unsterilized cats, together with their off-
spring, can result in 420,000 kittens in seven years. One
pair of unsterilized dogs, with their offspring, can result in
4,372 puppies in seven years.
Statistics also show that only one out of nine of these
animals ever find a good home, leaving the rest to suffer
abandonment and/or euthanasia.'
Whether your pets are kept indoors or out, there are
many health and behavioral benefits associated with spay-
ing and neutering, says Dr. Lynn Ruoff, a veterinarian in
the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
at Texas A&M University.
"Spaying and neutering pets results in fewer reproduc-
tive health problems and makes the treatment of epilepsy,
diabetes and other diseases much easier," notes Ruoff.
Pet owners concerned with the pain and cost of the ac-
tual procedure can be put at ease by talking with their vet-

worse than skin irritation
around the shot site, the AP
says. There is no need for
anyone who got those doses
to be re-vacciiated, as they
were potent, the AP says.

Stem cells
for muscular
Modifying their own stem
cells could once day help treat'
people with one type of mus-
cular dystrophy.
A study published in the
journal Cell Stem Cell, found
that a technique using adult
stem cells improved muscle
strength in mice with Duch-
enne muscular dystrophy.
The study used stem cells
taken from the muscle tissue
of Duchenne muscular dystro-
phy patients. The researchers
modified 'the cells to prevent
them from developing the mu-
tation that causes the disorder.
They injected the cells into the
bloodstreams of six mice. Lab
tests showed that the mice had
stronger muscles and could
run for a longer time on the
treadmill compared to mice
not treated with the stem cells.
However, the treatment did not
cure the mice -- they were still
weaker than healthy mice, The
Associated Press reports.,

Another year has come
and gone, God has now
blessed us with the great
privilege of seeing the be-
ginning of a new year. 2008
"AC" "In the Year of Our
Lord" is now here. By the
way, isn't it great how that
after all the fuss about using
the word "Christmas" when
referring to largest cele-
brated holiday of the' year,
and a day which according
to the media, our economy
could not survive without.
Yet, a week later the world
celebrates that Jesus Christ
was virgin born and that
His life, death and resurrec-
tion changed history and the
calendar as we know it, on
New Year's Day.
As we celebrate that God
has given us another year
to share His love with oth-
ers, it is also a great time to
take inventory and see what
we accomplished last year,
so that we can see where
we can do better in the year
ahead. Will we carry a lot
of baggage that should have
already been taken care of
and turned in to positive
memories and support for
the future? Will we enter it
with regrets and baggage
that will ruin the New Year
before it begins? Or will we
enter the New Year excited
about our walk with our
Lord, and love that we share
with friends and family?
We know according to
Job 16:19 there is a record
of every moment we live
recorded in Heaven. But
do we really need to wait
till we get there to see how
we have done?' Evii thoug'i
a business may keep good
records of all that they do,
the records are useless un-
less they stop at some point
and evaluate themselves. So
each year, most successful
businesses will take inven-
tory. Because it helps them
know what they are to pay
taxes on.
But it also becomes a
checklist to see if they are
actually successful at what
they have set out to do. A
good inventory will help
them see in which areas of
their business that they have
accomplished their goal and
where they have failed. A
good inventory will put a
spotlight on areas that need
immediate attention.
Inventory to a business
is equivalent to an annual
physical checkup for our
health. It's a time to look
for problems before it's too
late or too far gone. Most
churches even do annual
reports once a year for the
same reason. If businesses,
churches and our bodies
need annual checkups, why
not our homes and our-
selves, do we need personal
and spiritual checkups? I
think so.
Before I could even start
to inventory my home, to see
if it is accomplishing what a
home should do, I must first
inventory myself, to see if
I am accomplishing that
which I should accomplish.
A home is a place where an
individual or many indi-
viduals dwell together in a
harmonious atmosphere.
It's a dwelling where each
person involved feels safe,
comfortable and accepted
by all, a home which honors
God. When taking inven-
tory of my home, the great-
est detail I feel that should
be searched out is whether
or not that our home is ac-

From the


Tim Hall

complishing that which I
feel that it should, and that
it would be considered a
Christian home (A home in
which Christ would be de-
lighted to live). By the way,
pictures of Christ, the cruci-
fix, Bibles placed around the
house, or Madonna and an-
gel statuettes sitting around
a house does not make it a
Christian home. Person-
ally I have been in homes
where there where many of
these little idol-ettes placed
through out the house but yet
no sign that His love abides
in the home and I have been
in many homes where I saw
no idol-ettes, yet I felt the
presence of His love shared
through out the house by the
conversations, the respect
and serving attitude of each
family member.
You see, that which
makes a home a Christian
home are the people who
live in the house.- That's
why the inventory must be-
gin with you and me.
As the Bible teaches, we
need to judge ourselves (1
Corinthians 11:27-32). In
other words, step outside
of yourself and take a good,
look at you. When you do,
you will probably find the
person whom you are look-
ing at needs a lot of im-
If you don't, there's an-
other, much more serious
problem within your home
and you definitely need to
open your Bible. A Christian
home begins with me first,
having a personal relation-
ship with Christ. Because of
that relationship that I have,
my home becomes a place
of prayer, openly and pri-
vately. Private prayers be-
cause He is my best friend,
Lord and Savior and He is
the head of the house. Open
prayers because we are not
ashamed that He is part of
our family, thus He is in-
cluded in everything.
After taking inventory,
hopefully we will find that
our home is accomplish-
ing that which we have set
out to accomplish, a home
where "Love" Himself
dwells within us. It is my
goal as I, or whoever else
may take inventory of our,
home, that everyone will
discover that it is a home
where Christ lives. That it
will be very evident, not
because of pictures, but
because of the person and
people He dwells within.

Beyond brown:

Rice is nice in

other colors
Rice is nice, especially
in the colder months of the
Rice has been cultivated
since at least 5000 B.C. It
was probably first cultivat-
ed in the southern foothills
of the Himalayas in the up-
per reaches of the Irrawady,
Salween and Mekong.
Nowadays, we find rice
grown in Peru, Italy, India
and the deltas of Louisiana
and California. The United
States has gone a long way
from being an instant-rice
nation, to a nation of rice
connoisseurs, rice cookers
in hand.
Whether you pilaf, oven-
steam, saute or roast your
rice, rice can be a high-fi-
ber food -- choose the un-
polished varieties, such as
brown rice. It is enriched
with lots of B vitamins and
I thought you might en-
joy a tour through a sam-
pling of rices from around
the world. If you are not
near a market that sells
these rice varieties, you can

I --



Nancy Berkoff

find them on the Web, or
through mail order.
Popcorn rice: I thought
I would start in our own
(U.S.) backyard, with a
Louisiana rice specialty.
Popcorn rice is a variety
of Basmati rice. "Basma-
ti" literally translates as
the "queen of fragrance."
Basmati rice originated in
Northern India, and has
been adapted for Louisi-

ana's delta soil and climate.
Basmati is a long-grain
rice, which means that the
grains are usually three to
four times the size of their
width. Long-grain rice pro-
duces light, dry grains that
separate easily when prop-
erly cooked. Popcorn rice
has a rich, buttery aroma
and a delicate, buttery fla-
Bhutanese red rice:
Bhutaese red rice (red rices
are found in many coun-
tries) is an ancient short-
grain rice grown 8,000 feet
in the Himalayan Kingdom
of Bhutan. This richly col-
ored rice has a nutty flavor
(think pecans), soft texture
and beautiful red russet
color. Although it still has
its hull, making it high in
fiber, it cooks quickly, in
about 20 minutes for one
cup of rice.
Kalijira rice (baby bas-
mati rice): Kalijira rice is
also called the "prince of
rice.'' Grown in Bangla-
desh, this tiny rice cooks in
only 10 minutes for one cup
and it has a delicate aroma,
taste and texture. Tradition-
ally served using aromatic
spices such as cinnamon
sticks, cloves and carda-

mom pods, this is the tini-
est aromatic rice variety in
the world.
Cararoli rice: Jetting
over to South America, the.
Andes mountains in the
fertile valleys of central
Argentina offers Carnaroli
rice. This is a premium rice,
and is often used instead of
Italian arborio rice to pre-
pare risotto. The plump rice
kernels yield a creamy, soft,
tender product.
Black Thai rice (Purple
rice): Black glutinous (also
called sticky) or sweet rice
is a nutty whole-grain rice
widely grown and served
in Thailand. It is usually
served as a sweet, with bits
of mango, coconut or pine-'
apple and a sweet sauce. Far
from fluffy, this rice can be
rolled into balls and sprin-
kled with sesame seeds.
Black Indonesian rice:
Black Indonesian Rice
is also called "Forbidden
Rice" or "Emperor's Rice."
It is not glutinous, or sticky,
but is soft and fluffy. Origi-
nally grown only for no-
bility, the rumor was that
black Indonesian rice was
extremely high in nutrients,
including several amino
acids (building blocks of

protein), iron and other im-
portant minerals.
Wehani rice: Wehani rice
is light brown with a bit of
brick red. It is a derivative
of basmati rice, and is fluffy
and long-grained, with a bit
of a chew and a nutty flavor
(think almonds).
Jade Pearl rice: A rice
import company, Lotus
Foods (www.lotusfoods.
com), has recently intro-
duced a pearled rice that
is infused with Chinese
bamboo extracts. The rice
kernels do, indeed, resem-
ble slightly oblong-shaped
pearls. This a very sub-
stantial rice, hearty in taste,
with a forest-like, almost
mushroomy aroma.

Washington County native Curtis
Harcus honored for Iraq actions
Curtis M. Harcus, a Washington County native, is one of
two warrant officers who received Air Medals Nov. 12 for
their actions in the safe recovery of a damaged Apache.
During a Sept. 26 reconnaissance mission, an Apache
received enemy fire and was forced to land at Contingency
Operating Base Cahill southwest of Baghdad. Chief War-
rant Officer Harcus, maintenance test pilot with Company
B, 603rd Aviation Support Battalion, and Chief Warrant
Officer Marty Caulkins, pilot with Co. D. 1st Battalion,
3rd Avn, Regiment, were sent to assess the damage of the
aircraft. After evaluating the extent of the damage, Harcus
and Caulkins decided to repair the aircraft and fly it back to
Baghdad International Airport.
With the help of maintenance soldiers with.Co. B, 603rd
ASB, Harcus and Caulkins worked from Sept. 27-29 to re-
move the gun turret and replace the aircraft's three landing
struts and one damaged main rotor blade.
Both were awarded the Air Medal by Col. Daniel Ball,
commander of 3rd CAB flight line in Baghdad. By choos-
ing to fly the Apache back to BIAP, the officers saved sol-
diers from having to retrieve the aircraft through a convoy
on dangerous roads, Ball said.
The award was unexpected, according to Caulkins. "I
was just doing my job.Tou never expect awards for doing
your job."
Both officers give credit to the maintenance crew which
worked on the aircraft. They were given Army Commenda-
tion Medals for their part in the recovery of the damaged
"I'm glad for the award but I'm happier to see my me-
chanics receive awards," Harcus said. "The mechanics
made the repairs so I could fly back."
Harcus is the son of Robert M. and Hazel H. Harcus of
Washington County. He attended school in Vernon where
he was active in sports. He joined the Army when he grad-
uated from Vernon High School.
His wife, Jennifer, and son, Joshua, live in Georgia and
Curt is deployed from Ft. Stewart, Ga. He has a daugh-
ter, Christy Harcus McAlpin, who lives in Marianna. She
was Miss Marianna in 2006 and National Peanut Festival
Queen in Dothan, Ala., in 2007.

It's true that Polly may
want a cracker in fact,
she may want some peas
and carrots, a tossed salad,
rolls and that smoked salm-
on you were about to chow
down on.
Pet birds especially
parrots often can eat the
same food you might pre-
pare for yourself, and in
fact, prefer such food, and
it can be healthy for them,
says Dr. Alice Blue-McLen-
don, a veterinarian who
specializes in birds at Texas
A&M University's College
of Veterinary Medicine &
Biomedical Sciences.
Proper nutrition for birds
is often overlooked or mis-
understood by many bird
owners, who tend to believe
that birds will only eat bird-
While many birds do eat
seed the correct term is
pelleted food there are oth-
er birds that can eat many of
the same things people can,
says Blue-McLendon.
"As long as the table
food is not high in sugar
or fats, it's usually okay to
give birds what you might
be eating at the time," says
"Birds especially like
different kinds of fruits and
vegetables, but they also
like other foods, too. A few
things to stay away from are
chocolate, avocados and on-
"But in general, foods
that are rich in protein, vita-
mins and calcium are good
for birds."
Like people, many .birds
need to count their calories,
Blue-McLendon says.
SCertain species of birds
tend to get obese. These
include Amazon parrots
and some cockatoos. These
birds' food intake needs to

Ben's Place
Ben's Place will host
its First Annual Panhandle
Dog Expo, "No Dog Left
Behind," on Jan. 19, 10 a.m.

grooming tips, basic obedi-
ence training, how to pick

healthcare workshops.

puppy in a fashion show, ba-
sic obedience and bow-wow

be closely regulated, she
"Also, many types of
birds are prone to get hard-
ening of the arteries much
the same way as it occurs
in people," Blue-McLendon
"Some birds need a low-
fat diet. Too much choles-
terol may contribute to heart
Besides diet, bird owners
should be aware of chang-
ing temperatures that can be
fatal to birds.
In Texas where it can
be 80 degrees one day and
20 degrees the next.- sud-
den temperature changes
can be harmful to pet birds.
"If a bird such as a parrot
has been in a warm kitchen
for days and is suddenly
placed out in a porch during
a cold night, it might have
some problems," Blue-
McLendon says.
"Birds need to be able
to adjust to the changing
temperatures. A heat lamp
placed nearby' is often a
good idea if the bird is to be
outside in an enclosed area.
Birds kept outdoors must
have protection from the
"Also, birds that do re-
main outdoors should prob-
ably be given a little more
food and fed at least twice
a day.
"In Texas, we usually
have a fairly mild climate,
and most birds will be fine,
but it's still a good idea to
keep an eye on the ther-
mometer and take extra pre-
cautions to keep birds from
getting too cold," she adds.
