Planned wet-dry referendum

draws support, opposition

CHIPLEY The wet-dry referendum backed by a
Washington County organization is already draw-
ing both support and opposition. The Washington
County Citizens for Economic Opportunity regis-
tered as a political committee under Florida law
on July 1 to continue the referendum process.
"This allows us to raise and spend funds to-
wards revising Washington County's liquor laws,"
said Chairperson Sheran Whitaker.
The organization plans to use the Internet and
mailings to ask for signatures for the petition. "We
will not be going door-to-door," said Secretary

Chief: Chipley fire

appears to be deliberate

Managing Editor
CHIPLEY A Saturday fire in Chipley appears to
have been set deliberately, according to Chipley Fire
Chief Floyd Aycock.
Chipley firefighters were on the scene at about
noon at a log and brush fire just off Gilbert Road, and
quickly brought the fire under control. "There were
several residences very close by that could have
been damaged," Aycock said.
Aycock said that based on information gathered
at the scene the fire appears to have been set delib-
erately, and investigation continues into the cause.

WET-DRY from page Al

the mail and make peti-
tions available on our Web
site at www.wcceo.org.
Most residents who have
a recent history of voting
will be mailed a petition
once our drive begins."
Schoen said the num-
ber of signatures needed
would amount to 25 per-
cent of registered voters.
"There are currently
slightly more than 16,000
registered voters in Wash-
ington County, so we'll
need slightly more than
4,000 valid petitions,"
Schoen said.
"The actual number we
need won't be determined
until we begin the petition
drive because we'll need
to collect an amount equal
to 25 percent of the regis-
tered voters on the books
on that given day.
"The Supervisor of
Elections will advise us of
the figure when we file our
petition drive with her of-
fice. That may take place
as soon as late August or
early September."
Organizers claim that
food and beverage distrib-
utors have contacted them
about the planned referen-
dum. "Representatives of
a major restaurant chain,
a national hotel franchise
and several restaurant op-
erators in Bay County are
interested in coming to
Washington County once it
goes wet," Whitaker said.
"Due to their company
policies, we're not at lib-
erty to make the names
public," Schoen said. "We
can say that they fall into
the family-type, popular
chains that we see in oth-
er counties but not here.
Once Washington County
is wet, we'll be a good fit
for these types of restau-

"It would make my busi-
ness much, much better if.
Washington County would
become a wet county,"
said Rick Marco, owner of
Skins and Bubba's.
"We've gotten quite a

few requests for beer on a
regular basis. In fact, a lot
of requests come from ho-
tels whose visitors make
to-go orders here.
"I think that the coun-
ty is loosing revenue,
because the next time
those visitors come back
through this way, they're
going to stay in the next
county over because a lot
of people like to have beer
with their dinner, relax
and enjoy themselves. I
think it would greatly ben-
efit Washington County if
we were to go wet."
"It would be an im-
provement for everyone
if we were a wet county,"
said Emily Valdovinos,
manager of Cancun's Mex-
ican Grill. Cancun's sells
"People are always
asking for liquors, like
margaritas and tequila
and people are having to
go to Panama City if they
want to get a drink and
we're loosing business as
a county because of this.
"Unless people just
want Chipley to remain
small and not grow, I can't
understand why they
wouldn't want to go wet."
Cancun's and Pizza Hut
meet requirements for
having approval for beer
sales by nearby residents
and being a certain dis-
tance from churches and
schools. (See Summary
of Alcoholic Beverage Or-
dinances for Washington

Opposition to
changing existing
Current law allows for
the sale of beer and wine
in stores in Washington
County. There are a few
outlets that can sell beer
on Sunday.
The Rev. Alcus Brock
of the West Florida Bap-
tist Association expressed
his moral opposition to ex-
panding liquor sales, but
also couched his opposi-
tion in practical terms
"How many times have
you read or heard about
a fatal accident when the
last comments were, "We
believe it was alcohol relat-
ed?" Granted this is not al-
ways true, but many, many
times it is," Brock wrote in
an editorial running in this
week's paper.
"I also saw what was
broadcast as "breaking
news," telling about a drug
bust. They reported how


Section 6-2
No beer, wine or other alcoholic or
intoxicating beverage may be sold, consumed
or served, or permitted to be served or
consumed in any place licensed under the
stale division of alcoholic beverages and
tobacco, or any other public place in the
unincorporated area of the county, doily
between the hours of 12 midnight and 7 a m.

Section 6-3
No beer, wine or other alcoholic or
intoxicating beverages may be sold for
consumption on the premises within 500 Feet
of any residence.
No beer, wine or other alcoholic or
intoxicating beverages may be sold for
consumption on the premises within 1,000
feet of any residence unless all property
owners owning property lying outside 500
and within 1,000 feel of such business
shall consent in writing on a form to
be approved by the board of county

Section 6-4
No beer, wine or other alcoholic or

many pounds of marijuana
or other types of drugs
were recovered.
"Both drugs and alco-
hol are mind-altering sub-
stances. It is just as easy
to overdose on alcohol as it
is on any of the other sub-
stances mentioned. Let's
call it what it is a drug.
This is why we need to get
them removed from the
"It is my belief that we
need to take a long hard
look at whether we should
bring alcohol into this
county and not just from
the standpoint of business.
It needs to be looked at
from the standpoint of the
loss of life and the destruc-
tion of property, as well as,
the added expense of polic-
ing the area and the effect
it will ultimately have on
many homes.
"If a person is able to
walk around the corner to
gamble or buy alcohol, they
are certainly more likely to
do. so than if they have to
travel a distance to get it."
The Rev. Tim Hall, for-
mer pastor of Blue Springs
Baptist Church in Wash-
ington County and a regu-
lar columnist for this pa-
per, also strongly opposes
expanding the law.
"The amazing thing
about Satan and those who
set out to get personal gain
by deployment of his vices
is they don't quit," Hall

wrote last week.
"It seems that there
is a group claiming that
they are interested in the
economic development of
Washington County, and
they are claiming the way
to solve the problem is to
legalize another drug to be
legally sold so that we will
have more drunk drivers
on the road, possibly killing
innocent people.
"What would be great
in my opinion would be
for another coalition to be
formed that is interested
in the future of the fami-
lies in this great county, a
coalition that would get on
the ballot a vote that would
allow the citizens of Wash-
ington County to lead this
county forward and be the
leader in returning our cit-
ies and counties to a place
that we could all be proud
of. A county where no alco-
hol beverages of any form
or fashion could be sold in
this county or any other
county would be nice."
Both Brock and Hall's
columns are also available
online under Editorials at
The Washington County
Chamber of Commerce
does not take a stance on
the issue. Spokesperson
Chris MacBlain said Thurs-
day that the Chamber urg-
es everyone to examine the
issue and vote as they see

intoxicating beverages may be sold for
consumption on the premises within 2,000
feel of any church.

Perry II, Deanna, Julie, Dan and Laura Wells as they partook of the delicious watermelon served to visitors at the 53rd annual watermelon festival June 27.

Grandchildren keep 'Prattler' involved in Watermelon festival

The "prattler" will
make one more reference
to the recent watermelon
festival. The picture for
last week's article got lost
in the shuffle. The photo
shows five of our eight
grandchildren enjoying
some serious watermelon
eating. The picture is set
for this week's writing.
As pointed out last
week, the grandchildren's
interest and involvement
keep Perry and Hester
motivated to remain
active in the annual
watermelon event. It has
been a part of our lives
all the way back to the
younger years of our four
The intent of this
week's column is to
once again update some
recent comments and

expressions of approval
of the "prattle" from you,
the readers.
Several weeks ago,
a longtime friend, Gene
Simmons, told me at a
funeral visitation, his
enjoyment of my writing
efforts. It was good to
see his wife, Myrtle, and
to observe that she is
obviously feeling better
after recent medical
Mentioning Gene and
Myrtle reminds me that
Hester and I saw their
son, Freddie Simmons
and wife, Kathy, at the
retirement party held for
Larry Kelly. We learned
they have been living
out of state for the past
several years in order to.

The Wellses were
honored to be included on
the invitation list to Larry
Kelly's gigantic
party honoring his
thirty five years of
service with the w.
Florida Department
of Transportation.
The event was held
at the fabulous
Marriott Hotel PE
located at Bay PR
Point, an exclusive Pe
beach resort
situated on the Gulf
of Mexico.
The three hundred
guests, including Larry's
family along with friends
and co-workers, were
seated and served in
the massive dining
area with ample room
to spare. Emory Kelly,
Larry's father along
with his sister, Ann, and
husband, from Houston,
Texas enjoyed the party
honoring their loved one.
Those in attendance
were the "Who's Who" of
DOT dignitaries from the
main office in Tallahassee
to representatives from
all the district offices
throughout the state.
Planners of the party
are to be congratulated
for a job well done. It
was like a "homecoming"
when current employees,
plus a host of others, who
have already reached
retirement with the
road building agency for
Florida, came together.
Rosa Nell Baxley



has again honored the
writer recently with
complimentary remarks
regarding the "prattle".
She told me that she and
Hester were born the
same year, which puts
her age close to mine.
Rosa Nell states that my

Howard and Sue
ATTLE Gilbert had kind
y Wells comments as to
their enjoyment
of the weekly "prattle"
column. Sue told me
the title, "prattle" is the
perfect description of
the writings contained.
Knowing her profession
in the field of psychology,
this is considered the
utmost in a compliment.
Howard and Sue were
faithful radio listeners
during my tenure on
WBGC radio. I have
always told Howard that
he reminds me of Homer
L. Rhoden, Sr, known for
many years on radio in
Chipley as "Big Sarge".
Howard continues to
inquire as to status of
the local station and of.
any possible hopes of
the facility returning to
broadcasting. I have to
tell him, as I tell others,
that I have no contact
with present owners and
know of no hope for the

Recently, Hester and
I visited with Margaret

Miner at K. C.'s Pizza.
She commented on
the newspaper article
which included the her

patronizing. Margaret
further complimented my
writings by directing a
remark to Hester stating:

My former U. of F.
roommate, Sammie
Ray Young, told me in a
recent letter: Perry, stay
with your format in your
column. Don't ever get
political ."
J. C. Griffin, who
the writer describes as
number one fan of the
"prattle", was in the area
during the watermelon
festival week end. In a
telephone conversation,
J. C. had high praise
for the coverage given
the Griffin Reunion
held in May. He was
especially pleased with
the group picture of the
2008 gathering. Thanks
to Managing Editor, Jay
Felsberg, the photograph
was printed in color. I
missed seeing my friend
from Vero Beach, but he
promises to return for
the Finch Reunion in
September and I hope to
see him then.
One person at the
watermelon festival made
a special effort to speak to
the "prattler," obviously
recognizing me from the
picture accompanying the
story each week. She is
Rose Mary Maxwell and
I believe she described
herself as a relative
newcomer to the area.
Thanks for making the
effort to speak to me and

the kind remarks are
always welcomed and
Bill Webb, who will
join me in August for a
birthday, continues to
read my articles and
expressed great interest
in the writer's choice of
descriptive adjectives.
A few weeks ago the
word "nattily" piqued
Bill's interest. He gave
his full concurrence on
the correct application of
the word.

Green homes going up

Local builders say buyers want greener, more energy efficient houses to fight recession

home buyers want eco-

is relatively new in Florida
and has a small market
share, unfortunately there
simply isn't enough data to
substantiate green building

said in an e-mail. "Hope-
fully in the next five years
or so as green building
matures, there will enough
data to prove if green build-
ings have higher values and
shorter marketing times."
No studies are available

Stewart said. That said, lo-

Washington County News I A7

Loss of historic home rekindles fond memories

By Perry E. Wells

The June 17 issue of The
Washington County News
carried the front page ac-
count of the devastating
fire that occurred on Friday
night, June 12, destroying
the Elbert Duncan Martin
House in the Poplar Head
community of Washington
Cecilia Spears, staff writ-
er for The News, wrote the
story of the loss of one of
the county's historic land-
mark homes. Many memo-
ries, and much heritage,
are deeply embedded as
treasures in the hearts and
minds of family members.
Jay Felsberg, manag-
ing editor of the newspaper,
asked this question: "Perry,
do you think you could get
a picture of this old house
before the fire?" Jay also
added- his blessing to the
writer's exploring further
into the history of the old
home place and the early
settlers who established it
as a home.
Elbert Duncan Martin,
born in 1873 and died in 1971
at the age of 97, built the re-
cently destroyed home. The
home began in the late 1800s
as a one room log house.
Later, the remainder of the
house was built from heart
pine and cypress, hand cut
lumber, and was separate
from the original log cabin,
which then became the
Martin, who was known
by his middle name, Dun-
can, or "Dune," built the
home expressly for his new
bride, Rebecca White Mar-
tin, known as Becky. Both
had grown up in the Poplar
Head community. She was
born in 1879 and died in
The Martin ancestors
came to Washington County
looking for undeveloped and
less expensive land than
that available in their home
Farm land was plentiful
and had the reputation of
being fertile soil for growing
crops. The turpentine indus-
try, which was flourishing in
the area at that time, could
have contributed to the
move to the Poplar Head
community by the Martins
and other early settlers.
Duncan and Becky Mar-
tin were blessed with the
arrival of their first son,
Andrew, in 1900. He mar-
ried Lillie Brackin of Boni-
fay and worked and lived in
Panama City where he was
well known as a barber. He
died in 1987.
Tom Martin was born
in 1903. He married a lady
with the first name, Vassie,
who was from Georgia. Tom
established himself as a pro-
fessional barber in Gaines-
ville. He also was known as
an excellent cook. Prepar-
ing "egg custard pies" was
his specialty.
The third child of the
Martins was a son, Leslie,
who died young from an un-
known childhood disease.
The fourth child was a
daughter, Jessie Martin
Richards, born in 1906
and died in 2000. She mar-
ried first Douglas Richards
of Chipley and they had six
children. She moved to West
Palm Beach after the death
of her first husband. Later,
she married Chet Wells.
Jessie was in her 80s and 90s
when she returned to Wash-
ington County and lived ad-
jacent to the old homestead.
Preston Martin was born
in 1907 and died 1976. He
married Nona Yates from
the Vernon area. They
made their home in Ma-
con, Ga., where he was em-
ployed. They returned to the
area and lived in Bonifay
their last years.
Daughter Willie Dee
Martin Chesnut was born
in 1910 and died in 2000.
She married Roy Chesnut,
who was reared in the Pop-
lar Head area. She lived her
lifetime in close proximity to
her parents and took care

of them in their declining

garet Hutchinson Chesnut,
have owned and cared for
the aged and beloved home
place for the past 25 years.
Their home is in the com-
munity, and they make al-
most daily visits to the prop-
erty caring for the beautiful
shrubbery, flowers and the
well-manicured lawn adorn-
ing the prominent historical
Son, Harry Martin, was
born in 1913 and died in 2001.
His wife, Charlotte, was
from Virgina. They lived in
Memphis and Birmingham
during his employment with
Union Carbide. Harry and
wife also returned home af-
ter retirement in 1979 and
lived next door to the noted
Martin house.
Harvey Martin was born
in 1916 and died in 1987. Af-
ter military service in World
War II, he returned to the
home of his parents, which
remained his home until
death. Harvey never mar-
ried and died where he was
Poplar Head Freewill
Baptist Church was the
home church to the Duncan
Martins while they raised
their family. They, along
with six of the children, are
buried in the church cem-
etery. Tom Martin is buried
in Gainesville, and the in-
fant, Leslie, is thought to be
buried at Hard Labor Cem-
The Martin offspring
received their elementary
education at Poplar Head

School. After that school
closed, some students at-
tended Union Hill, and oth-
ers went to Bonifay schools.
Probably a long forgotten
incident in the life of Elbert
Duncan Martin was that he
served on two of the three
juries that convicted defen-
dants of three separate mur-
ders in Washington County
in 1901. The historic event is
recorded in E. W Carswell's
book, Washington, Florida's
Twelfth County.
Martin was interviewed
for a newspaper story on
this matter in 1970 when
he was 97 years old. He re-
called details of the experi-
ence with clarity. He reports
speculation at the time of
the trials that Sheriff J. A.
McKeithen's enthusiasm for
the job of sheriff had less-
ened. This resulted in the

sheriff's resignation from
the office before his elected
term ended.
Martin did not attend
the July 1, 1901, hangings,
explaining that he had only
been married a short time
and did want to leave his
wife alone "with everyone
else in the community gone
to Vernon." Vernon was the
county seat at the time.
Buddy and Margaret
Chesnut are making every
effort to be philosophical
and understanding as to
their loss. "Our family was
so saddened to find the old
home place burned to the
ground," reports Buddy and
Margaret. "Not only was the
place a special reminder of
Washington County history,
but it reminded us of all the
wonderful people who had
grown up there and had
lived during 'hard times'
and had gone on and given
many productive years of
service to others and our so-
ciety," concluded the heart
broken couple.
Two songs regarding old
houses and homes come to
the mind of the writer when
thinking of the subject of the
One is the George Jones
composition, which was
later popularized by Bill
Monroe, entitled "The Old,
Old House." Lyrics include:
"There's an Old, Old House
That Once Was a Mansion,
On a Hill Overlooking The
Town, Where Time's Left
a Wreck That Once Was A

Elbert Duncan Martin and wife, Rebecca "Becky"
White Martin, are shown in the old house during
their declining years.

Beauty, And Soon The Old
House Tumbled Down."
Stuart Hamblem's song
"This Old House" also re-
corded by Rosemary Cloo-
ney and others, has the
following impressive lyr-
ics: "This Old House Once
Knew My Children, This Old
House Once Knew My Wife,
This Old House Was Home
and Shelter, As We Fought
The Storms of Life."
Many family members,
and other kinsmen to the

Chesnuts, still reside in the
Poplar Head community.
They, along with neighbors
of long-standing, fellow
church members, associ-
ates in the work place and
friends by the hundreds,
have expressed concern
and offered words of encour-
agement to the Martin and
Chesnut family in the sad
loss of their historic home,
which has stood as a beacon
and lighthouse to so many
for generations.

BHS Reunion banquet planned Aug. 1

BETHLEHEM The Bethlehem
Alumni Association will hold its an-
nual reunion banquet beginning at
6 p.m. Aug. 1.
To expand the function and service
to Bethlehem alumni and friends,
the once Bethlehem Reunion Group
has undergone some changes. First,
the Board of Directors voted unani-
mously to become an Alumni Asso-
ciation, while still undergoing some
restructuring it was thought that this
amendment would allow the group
to move forward and ignite interest
among alumni and friends. Second,
the Reunion Banquet that happens
every year on the first Saturday of
August will become one that is ap-
pealing to a wide-range of alumni and

friends. Several committees have
been formed, and the members are
currently working harder than ever
to make the event one that will be re-
It was decided that this year's
event would be designed around the
theme "Teaching, Triumphants, and
Tradition." And in conjunction with
the event's theme, the third major
change decided by the Board of Di-
rectors was to incorporate an an-
nual service project. It was impor-
tant that this service project benefit
the current students of Bethlehem
High School. With current budget
restraints on supplies for students, a
decision was made that this year's ef-
forts would go directly to school sup-

plies for the teachers' classrooms.
Information on how to contribute
to this year's goal will be provided at
the time of ticket reservation, via the
Bethlehem Alumni Web site, or can
be made at the reunion banquet. The
event will be catered by Bethlehem's
Culinary Academy

Professor: Demand for school
psychologists, psychometrists growing

DOTHAN Troy University's Dothan Campus
will restart graduate degree programs in psy-
chometry and school psychology this fall after a
two-year hiatus.
"These are two very vital programs that will
allow Troy to help meet the growing demand for
school psychologists and psychemetrists," said
Dr. Ginger Mayer, associate professor of coun-
seling and psychology. "The school psychologist
and psychometrist are two of the top three sup-
port personnel in any school."
Even as the demand for school psychologists
and psychometrists is growing, school systems
are facing a shortage of qualified candidates,
Mayer said.
The Dothan Campus has been without the
two graduate programs for two years after the
previous instructor left. Troy has hired Dr. Brian
Boehman to restart to the programs, Mayer said.
Students interested in the programs can be-
gin enrolling now. For more information, contact
Mayer at vmayer@troy.edu, or at 334-983-6556.

When tempted to doubt God

With all that is going
on in this world, and
maybe in your life right
now, do you ever have
days when you just need
to meet someone who
would brighten your day?
Because of sin that is FROI
in the world, everyone HE
feels its effect through Tim
pain of some sort. There
is hardly a day that goes
by that I don't meet someone
who is experiencing some type of
great pain in their life.
Many are suffering from great
physical pain, some because of
accidents, and others because of
aging and changing of the body.
There are also many others
who are experiencing emotional
and mental pain because of
family members or decisions
they themselves have made. In
either case, the pains are very

.,_ real and sometime seem
'" unbearable. Because of
these pains, we are often
tempted to give way to
Satan as he tempts us to
question God.
Not long ago, I was
4 THE reading a message
ART that D.L. Moody had
Hall preached many years
ago, probably after'the
great Chicago fire.
In the message, he was telling
about a friend of his who helped
teach him a valuable lesson.
He shared that his friend had
fallen and broken his back at
the age of 15. At the time of his
sharing of this, his friend had
been confined to a bed for 40
years. He stated that even the
slightest movement would cause
tremendous pain to his friend.
But day after day, it seemed that
the grace of God was granted to

him to endure this pain.
Moody spoke of one of his
visits with him, saying, "I
declare to you it seemed to me
as if I were in the presence of
one of God's most highly-favored
children." He went on to say,
"it seemed as though I was as
near heaven as I could get on
earth," as he spoke of this man's
attitude and smile. The lesson
he said he learned, happened
one day while visiting with him.
Moody asked him, "My friend,
does the devil never tempt you
to doubt God and think hard of
the Master?"
To this, he answered, "Well
now, that is just what he tries
to do. Sometimes, as I look out
of the window and see people
walking along in health, Satan
whispers: 'If God is so good, why
does He keep you here all these
years? Why, if He loved you,

instead of lying here and being
dependent on others, you might
now have been a rich man and
riding in your own carriage.'"
Moody replied, "What do you
do when the devil tempts you?"
The friend quickly replied,
"I just take him up to the cross,
and he had such a fright there
eighteen hundred years ago that
he cannot stand it, and he leaves
It seems that this bedridden
saint had no trouble with doubts,
for he is so full of God's grace.
As Moody learned that day, may
we also learn that we need only
to come boldly to God; there we
will find all the help and strength
we need for the day in which we
live. You see, there is not a child
of God alive that God will let fall
into the temptations of Satan, if
we will only let God hold us up in
His almighty arms.

"Seeing then that we have
a great High Priest who has
passed through the heavens,
Jesus the Son of God, let us
hold fast our confession. For we
do not have a High Priest who
cannot sympathize,with our
weaknesses, but was in all points
tempted as we are, yet without
sin. Let us therefore come boldly
to the throne of grace, that
we may obtain mercy and find
grace to help in time of need."
Hebrews 4:14-16 (NKJV)

After a few of the usual Sunday evening hymns,
the church's preacher once again slowly stood
up, walked over to the pulpit and gave a very brief
introduction of his childhood friend. With that, an
elderly man stepped up to the pulpit to speak.
^ "A father, his son and a friend
of his son were sailing off the'
Pacific Coast," he began, "when
Sa fast-approaching storm blocked
Sany attempt to get back to shore.
The waves were so high that,
A fr 'even though the father was an
experienced sailor, he could not
LET YOUR keep the boat upright, and the
LIGHT SHINE three were swept into the ocean."
Wes Webb The old man hesitated for a
Moment, making eye contact with
two teenagers who were, for the first time since
the service began, looking somewhat interested in
his story.
He continued, "Grabbing a rescue line, the
father had to make the most excruciating decision
of his life: to which boy he would throw tthe other
end of the line. He only had seconds to make
the decision. The father knew that his son was a
Christian, and he also knew that his sofn's friend
Swas not.
"The agony of his decision could not be
matched by the torrent of waves. As the father
yelled out, 'I love you, son!' he threw the line to his
son's friend. By the time he'pulled the friend back
to the capsized boat, his son had disappeared
beyond the raging swells into the black of night.
His body was never recovered."
By this time, the two teenagers were sitting
straighter in the pew, waiting for the next words
to come out of the old man's mouth.
"The father," he continued, "knew his son
would step into eternity with Jesus, and he could
not bear the thought of his son's friend stepping
into an eternity without Jesus. Therefore, he
sacrificed his son. How great is the love of God
that He should do the same for us."
With that, the old man turned and sat back
down in his chair as silence filled the room.
Within minutes after the service ended, the two
teenagers were at the old man's side.
"That was a nice story," politely started one of
the boys, "but I don't think it was very realistic for
a father to give up his son's life in hopes that the
other boy would become a Christian."
"Well, you've got a point there," the old man
replied, glancing down at his
worn Bible.
A big smile broadened his narrow face, and
he once again looked up at the boys and said, "It
sure isn't very realistic, is it? But I'm standing
here today to tell you that THAT story gives me a
glimpse of what it must have been like for God to
give up His Son for me. You see....I was the son's
"For when we were yet without strength, in
due time Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die:
yet peradventure for a good man some would
even dare to die. But God commendeth his love
toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us. Much more then, being now
justified by his blood, we shall be saved from
wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies,
we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son,
much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved

Being Helpful vs.

It is a wise person who knows when and how to tactfully
speak up about a situation that may need correcting When
a person is critical of almost everything, they may be looked
upon by others as being a
'complainer. 'There
Sis a significant difference
between grumbling and
CIKIEFe i honestly trying to be
4*FilC helpful. Most businesses
i T (have a customer service.,
DET' T department to handle
problems and complaints."
They usually do not call them"
S 0 "complaint departments"
S because they know that
correcting problems and"
providing good service are
beneficial to good business,
whereas complaining denotes:a negative tone..In addition, no
one likes to listen to someone who is always complaining.The
Bible tells us in Colossians 3:13,
*Be tolerant with one another and forgive one another
whenever any of you has a complaint against someone else.
Y'ou must forgive one another just as the Lord has forgiven
you."We should try to be more positive to reduce the stress in
our lives; God wants us to work and live in harmony with those
around us.
Do everything without complaining or arguing.

Holmes County Times-Advertiser I Washington County News I B7


Pets & Water Safety
With temperatures top-
ping 100 degrees it is offi-
cially time to cool off. Sum-
mer time is time to get to
the pool or lake for relief
and fun in the sun. While
we all know that water safe-
ty is crucial for ourselves
and especially for children,
it's also important to keep
our pets safe around water
as well.
"The good news is that
all pets instinctively -know
how to swim," says Dr.
Mark Stickney, Director of
General Surgery Services
at the Texas A&M Univer-
sity College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical Sci-
ences. "However, it is still

important that you monitor
them and watch for any haz-
ards they may encounter."
Although pools can be a
great way for both pets and
owners to cool off, they can
be harmful if not used and
monitored properly.
"Dogs will usually self-
regulate when they need to
stop swimming, but if they
are in the pool and they
don't know where the steps
are or are unable to get up
them then it can become
a problem," notes Stick-
ney. "This may mean that
you not only have to watch
them, but be in a position to
help them out of the pool."
While you might be
watching your pet while
they are swimming with

the family, it is important to
make sure that there is no
way they can get into or fall
into the pool unsupervised.
"It would be a rare cat
that would swim willingly,
but it is possible for them
to be chasing a bug and fall
into a pool and not be able
to get out. A pool can also
be a hazard for a pet with
epilepsy that could fall in
while having a seizure,"
states Stickney.
One other hazard that
Stickney warns of is the
pool cover. If a dog unwit-
tingly walks onto a pool
cover it can get tangled in it
and drown.
While chlorine levels in
pools are typically safe for
both humans and pets, chlo-

rine can cause some eye ir-
ritation and discomfort.
"If your pet's eyes get
irritated you can use regu-
lar saline solution to flush
them out," remarks Stick-
ney. "Also, water exposure
in general can cause some
dogs to get ear infections
so it's important to watch
for that and take your ani-
mals to the veterinarian if
either of these conditions
Lakes present similar
risks as pools with regard
to water safety, but Stick-
ney explains that a few ex-
tra precautions are neces-
sary when taking your pets
on a boat. Make sure that if
you take your pet on a boat
that you have a lifejacket

on them," urges Stickney
"If the animal falls out of
the boat they could hit their
head or they might not be
able to get back into the
boat so they will need the
jacket to help them stay
- Stickney explains that it
is very important to have
a special life jacket that is
made for a pet because a
lifejacket made for a human
will not fit correctly and
could get tangled around a
pet's legs or neck.
"One final thing that I
would say about boat safety
is that although you may be
surrounded in water, if the
dog can't get into the water
they can get dehydrated.
So make sure you bring

plenty of water for the dog
to drink," concludes Stick-
Spending time with your
pets in the water is a great
way to have fun and beat
the summer heat. With a
few precautions and a lot of
supervision you can make
sure it is a fun and safe
time for everybody.
