Rex Ray, also known as the Sand Hills Santa, has been working in the local community for more than ve years, but his career as Santa started seven years ago. Seven years ago I was requested by my church, St. Joseph the Worker, to be the kneeling Santa, Ray said. Thats the image of Santa kneeling to the baby Jesus in recognition that hes the reason for the season. Thats what got me started doing charitable events as Santa. Not long after doing charitable events Ray began to open himself up to be available for events and parties to help pay for his charitable endeavors. We try to get involved in the communitys events, Ray said. Weve been the Santa for Northwest Florida Community Hospital for four years, and we participate in Relay for Life. Weve also done the Breakfast with Santa for the Chipley Kiwanis Club and for the Guardian Ad Litem in Washington County. He has been the Santa for the Guardian Ad Litem in Washington County for two years, and each year the Santa has been able to bring two truckloads of toys for the children, he said. I belong to a national organization known as Santa America, which is a group of professional Santas who volunteer their time to visit children and families in crisis, Ray said. Santa Claus visits these children twelve months out of the year to hopefully bring them hope, peace and joy while theyre at home, the hospital or even hospice. He explained that to be a Santa you dont have to be a professional, but it helps. Ive been to Santa Santa brings Christmas spirit year round Grand Ridge Hosts Christmas Classic GRAND RIDGE Grand Ridge Schools rst Christmas Classic concludes today, with local high school basketball action.

Weight Loss Challenge planned CHIPLEY If losing weight is your New Years resolution, Talk O the Town Nutrition is sponsoring a Weight Loss Challenge, beginning Jan. 3. The public is invited to join in the 8-week Special to the News CHIPLEY The Chipley Kiwanis Club met for its weekly luncheon Tuesday at Patillos Restaurant at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center where lunch was prepared and served by the students in the culinary program. The Christmas program was presented by Elliot Wimberly, associate music director at First Baptist Church, and Vincent Spencer, pastor of New Life Assembly. Mr. Wimberly played two Christmas carols on guitar and led singing of the carols by the Kiwanians present. Pastor Spencer gave a short overview of Jesus birth and noted that Jesus came to Earth to save us. We cannot stand by ourselves and assume that our goodness and good works are enough to admit us into the kingdom of heaven. It also requires recognition and acceptance that only through accepting Jesus may we be admitted. It was also announced that the Glenn Miller Orchestra will appear at 4 p.m., Jan. 2, at the Chipley High School Auditorium. Tickets are $10 each and will be sold at the door. The mission of the Kiwanis Club is To change the world, one child and one community at a time. In order to do this, the Chipley Kiwanis Club conducts fundraising activities throughout the year to help support different activities throughout Washington County. The Kiwanis Club has just kicked off its annual Fruit Sale. If you would like fresh fruit in early December for yourself or as a gift and help worthy causes in the county, contact any Kiwanis Club member to place your citrus order.

The Washington County School District had all schools on precautionary lock down Thursday morning. The lockdown began shortly after school began and was lifted just before noon on all Washington County schools, according to the Washington County Sheriffs Of ce. We had some information reported to a school administrator about a potential threat that had come in through social media, Taylor said. Once we got in process of responding to it, the sheriffs of ce was involved and the decision was made to lock down the schools. At the end of the day, everything was found to be unfounded, Taylor said. An indirect threat was made, and any time there is a threat to the schools we put them on lock down, said Andrea Gainey, Washington County Sheriffs Ofce spokeswoman. That is our policy. We appreciate your patience as we ensured the well being of those at our area schools, Gainey said in a sheriffs of ce news release. See LOCKDOWN A3 See BRIEFS A3 Faith A2 SCARED OF SANTA


Faith A2 | Washington County News Saturday, December 22, 2012 During the holidays, many children get involved with religious activities. Even if kids arent included in religious observances at any other time of the year, theyll often be asked to participate during the holidays. I remember playing the role of an angel in a school Christmas pageant. I thought my silver tinsel halo was the most beautiful thing ever created. It was so lovely I couldnt bear to put it on top of my head, choosing to clutch it tightly in my hand and stare at it, instead. Later, when I was a far more mature fourth grader, I landed the role of the Virgin Mary in yet another school pageant. The role required me to sing a musical number and recite a rather long poem from memory while holding a rubber baby Jesus doll with huge blue eyes that seemed to follow me everywhere. Standing onstage and delivering my lines with the precise oratory skills demanded by the teacher nearly scared the holiday joy right out of me. In the past few weeks, local children have been busier than ever. Many are gearing up for Christmas recitals, pageants, plays and childrens cantatas. Ive heard kids practicing Bible readings, songs and dramatic presentations. Kids are ringing hand bells, dressing up as shepherds, and decorating trees. Children from other religious traditions are also celebrating holidays and getting involved in their own family, religious and cultural traditions. Even in homes where religious holidays arent observed, young people are still learning about the various interesting customs observed during this time of year. Its great to encourage kids to get involved. But, having survived the aforementioned fourth grade Christmas pageant, I also understand the problems that can arise when the performance level expected of children becomes excessive. While its nice for children to be included, they arent capable of perfection. Neither are you. One Christmas season, I overheard some Sunday School teachers fretting over a youngster who wanted to wear a moose costume to a Christmas pageant. Clearly, the Bible mentions nothing about a herd of moose being in attendance at the birth of Christ. What could be done about this child whod taken the role of a moose in a recent school play, had no other costume, and adamantly demanded to reprise his role as a moose? Let him be a moose, the priest advised. That was the end of the debate. The kid trimmed his antlers with plastic Christmas holly leaves and showed up ready for action. I attended that pageant. The little moose looked so proud to be included in the scene. He was positively beaming. So what if a Christmas moose seems odd to adults? It meant everything to that child. The holidays, and life itself, neednt be all about adults. Lets include our communitys children in ways that work best for them. But dont overload them or make them feel uncomfortable or frightened. If you know of any special needs children (or adults), dont forget about them. Lets reach out to all people, young and old, regardless of background or beliefs, this holiday season. Its my rst opportunity to experience the holidays in Florida. Although theres no snow on the ground, I can still feel the Christmas spirit. My husband and I were at Panama City Beach recently, and couldnt help but chuckle when we suddenly heard a recording of Bing Crosby singing Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas. We were standing by a cluster of palm trees while wearing shorts and t-shirts. Nothing about the scene even remotely looked like Christmas. But I turned my thoughts toward the immense outpouring of generosity Ive seen from people in this area, and realized that, although a white Christmas is likely out of the question, the primary message of the holidays is as true here as anywhere else: Peace on Earth, good will to men. CHARITY OF THE WEEK: Volunteers of America Volunteers of America was organized in 1896, by Ballington and Maud Booth, the son and daughter-in-law of General William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army. Today, this group serves over 2 million people annually. They provide a wide range of services, including aid for the homeless, prisoners, seniors, the intellectually challenged, and those struggling with addiction. They even sponsor birthday parties for homeless children. Volunteers range in age from minors to senior citizens. The VOA maintains several Florida of ces, including ones in Pensacola and Tallahassee. One of their regional goals is to locate and engage vulnerable Floridians. This organization has been helping people for over 100 years, and that includes residents of the Florida Panhandle.

SANTA from page A1 KIWANIS from page A1 Local Washington County News | A3 Saturday, December 22, 2012 School and have to have a background check done on a regular basis, he said. This helps with peace of mind to those who have me coming around children and Ive got over $3 million in liability insurance to add to that peace of mind. Ray said he was excited because this organization of more than 400 Santas was going global. Weve been getting more and more support from so many people, he said. For Washington County alone Ive got over 1,000 toys to sort through to prepare for children. These are all donated by local people in Holmes, Washington and Bay Counties and wouldnt have been possible without their generosity. To nd out more on Santa America visit at www.santa-america.org. He also belongs to a group of real-bearded Santas called the Palm Tree Santas. Weve started a Santa Drill Team to support our troops, he said. We dress in red and white camou age and perform drill routines, teach the importance of the pledge of allegiance, the War of 1812, the signi cance of our ag and to honor our veterans. Were available upon request and only ask for donations for travel expenses. For more information on the Palm Tree Santas you can visit www. palmtreesantas.com. An unlikely source of support, he said, is a local pageant called Ms. Heart of the USA. Its teaching these young women that to be truly beautiful is to be charitable, he said. Their entry fee is usually donated items, such as nonperishable food items or toys when theyre raising for Toys for Tots. Fifty to 60 percent of his appearances are charitable and his wife Darline, also known as Mrs. Claus, makes all of his out ts, Ray said. What keeps him motivated with a strong drive to continue in this line of charitable works, he said, is quite simple. If we could maintain the charitable nature that comes with the Christmas season, that overwhelming sense to spread love, peace, joy and happiness, 365 days out of the year then we wouldnt have near as many of the problems we have today, Ray said. My sincere wish is for that to happen. The Kiwanis club meets at noon Tuesdays at Patillos restaurant in the middle of the WHTC campus. For an invitation, call any Kiwanian or David Solger, Membership Chairman at 638-1276. For more information about the Kiwanis Club of Chipley, visit www. ChipleyKiwanis.info.
