According to a report from the HCSO, authori ties received information about a meth lab on Wig gler Lane in Bonifay, and upon arrival, investigators saw Cobia trying to leave the residence in an eva sive manner while carry ing a box. The investigators then came in contact with Co bia, who had already con cealed the box, which was later located and found to contain materials used to make methamphetamine, the report stated. The report indicated a search of Cobias pockets revealed drug parapherna lia used during the inges tion of methamphetamine. Robbins also exited the residence and was de tained by investigators. During a search of the residence, investigators discovered a fully opera tional meth lab, including meth oil and ready-touse methamphetamine, the report stated. Investigators also dis covered a loaded handgun in the residence in the area of the meth lab. Cobia and Robbins were arrested, transport ed to Holmes County Jail and charged with trafck ing methamphetamine, possession of meth and manufacturing of meth. Cobia was charged ad ditionally with being a felon in possession of a rearm.

Dryer re extinguished in Bonifay By Cecilia Spears Staff Writer BONIFA Y The Holmes County Communication Center received a 911 call about a home on re on North County Road 173, just north of County Road 162 (Airport Highway) ear ly Wednesday, July 7. Bonifay Fire-Rescue, Holmes County Emergency Medical Services and the Holmes County Sheriffs Ofce were dispatched to the call at 1:13 a.m., accord ing to the report given by Bonifay Fire-Rescue. Sheriffs ofce Sgt. Ty ler Harrison arrived at the scene at 1:19 a.m. and advised all incoming units that because of the massive amount of smoke coming from the house, self-con tained breathing apparatus would be needed to enter the home. Harrison reported that there was only one occu pant at home, and she was outside and unharmed. Bonifay Fire-Rescue ar rived at the scene at 1:21 a.m. They made their way through the back door and used a re extinguisher, provided by Harrison, to put out the re, located in and contained to the clothes dryer. The re was extinguished at 1:27. Bonifay Fire-Rescue re ported that at the time, the home was ventilated using a positive-pressure ventila tion fan, and the damaged dryer was removed from the home. The report indicated the homeowner had turned on the dryer only 10 minutes before calling 911. Further investigation re vealed that a dishcloth was stuck in the barrel of the dryer, causing the dryer to seize, overheat and then ig nite the clothes inside. All units were cleared from the scene and re turned to the station by 2:06 a.m. J O H N TH O M A S C OBIA CECIL W A YNE ROBBINSH C S O arrests 2, dismantles lab METH CHARGES TERRANCE MOORE CHRISTIAN JARREAUX CUMMINGS VICTORIA IRENE DUNCAN ERIC LORENZO WORKS Doctors Memorial hosts workshop Special to the Times-AdvertiserBONIFA Y Doctors Memorial Hos pital hosted a Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Workshop on Thursday, July 7.

Charles Horne and Doug Faircloth, certied public accountants from Drafn and Tucker LLP, located in Albany, Ga., facilitated the event. With new health care reform concerns and a gen eral tightening of federal and state budgets, Horne and Faircloth advised the group on issues pertaining to Medicare reimburse ments, payment methods and Medicare cost reporting, and how to utilize statistics to increase reimbursement. Kathy Holzer with the Florida Hospital Associa tion gave an update high lighting legislation affecting rural hospitals. Statewide cuts in Medicaid reim bursement were discussed, as states are left with less federal and state funding. Although the FHA fought to keep Medicaid reimburse ment untouched for rural hospitals, a 3 percent cut was approved. Other hos pitals will experience a 12 percent decrease in Medic aid funding.

Rabies advisory still in effect in 2 Holmes areas Staff report The Holmes County Health Depart ments rabies advisory for two areas of the county remains in effect. The rst is in the southwest part of the county in the vicinity of Oak Grove Road and U.S. Highway 90 east of Ponce de Leon, and the second is in the northeast of the county on Bush Road east of the town of Noma. Health ofcials are urging residents to avoid all contact with high-risk stray and wild animals, including raccoons, foxes, skunks and bats. Rabies is a viral disease affecting the central nervous system that usually re sults in death. Rabies can be prevented but not cured. All warm-blooded animals, as well as humans, are able to contract rabies. Rabies is almost always contracted by exposure to a rabid animal. Exposure can come through a bite, scratches or saliva from the animal com ing in contact with the broken skin of an other animal or a human. To avoid the risk of exposure to ra bid animals, the Holmes County Health Department recommends the following guidelines: Do not feed wild or stray animals. Pet food should not be left outside. Secure trash receptacles to avoid at tracting wild or stray animals. Teach children never to handle un familiar animals, either wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly. Never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home. Do not try to nurse sick animals to health. People who have had physical contact with a suspicious animal should do the following: Wash the wound right away with soap and water to decrease the chances of infection. Seek medical attention immediately for post-exposure care and vaccine. Get a description of the animal that bit or scratched you. The health department recommends that residents report any suspicious be havior in wild or stray animals to the Hol mes County Sheriffs Ofce, 850-547-4421, or Holmes County Health Department, 850-547-8500, ext. 2.

ROSEMARY BEACH We celebrated our freedoms on the Fourth of July, but we seem to be slowly losing them. The wars we are still funding and the TSA are prime examples of how knee-jerk government policies, once set in motion in reaction to fears both real and imagined, damage the very people they profess to protect. Sadly, our government, which was founded on liberty and tasked with providing for the common defense, is slowly being taken down by deluded notions of political correctness while it bestows equal rights on our enemies. Common sense and our safety are being sacriced. Jean Webers frail, wheelchair-bound, 95-yearold mother was detained for 45 minutes at a Florida airport and searched by the TSA, which forced her to remove her adult diaper. The 105-pound leukemia patient had to y to her destination without underwear. The TSA is so devoid of reason and common sense that the poor old lady met with more scrutiny than a 20-year-old Middle Eastern male. By our government condoning outrages like this, Osama bin Laden has won. He need not be buried where religious fanatics can worship at his grave. He lives every day in the TSA monster he caused us to create. A TSA spokesperson resolutely defended the screening agents in Ms. Webers mothers case, and in others just as egregious. Not long ago, a 6-year-old boy was groped by TSA screeners. At least the Catholic Church makes an effort to transfer its violators to another parish. The TSA does nothing but dig in and defend the indefensible. Maybe the TSA is working on a theory that al-Qaida is trolling old folks homes, convincing 95year-old cancer patients to hide knives in their diapers in hopes of them being able to overcome two 35-year-old airline pilots. In todays convoluted logic, if you refuse an airport pat-down you can be arrested. And the rst thing the arresting ofcers do is pat you down. This is the circular nature of the conundrum. Moreover, a Cornell University study says more Americans (thousands a year) have died driving, which is more dangerous. The truth is, with long TSA lines, drunken pilots and sleeping air trafc controllers, al-Qaida terrorists are probably afraid to y. Flying anywhere these days is hard enough. If the authorities want to assist the ying public, they should Taser anyone behind you who is a seat-kicker. I dont like being around kids on airplanes. With all the whining, dgeting and childishness, I feel I am setting a bad example for them. These days, airline passengers are instructed not to bring three things with them to the airport: uids weighing more than 3 ounces, more than one carry-on bag, and their dignity. It is sad when the TSA makes families traveling to July 4 reunions feel awkward and uncomfortable, thus replacing the traditional role of the actual family reunion. Why we are so afraid to try to challenge the TSA? The high-handed, Obama/ Pelosi/Reid/Bush its for your own good attitude of the TSA somehow discourages inquiry into what the heck it is really doing. Such is the nature of a government bureaucracy or a corrupt church. Rule No. 1: Aver your moral justication and superiority and let no one question what you do. Rule No. 2: Whenever what you do is questioned, refer your critics to Rule No. 1. The TSA handled more junk than Anthony Weiner this July 4th weekend, with neither having any chance of explosions. Now the TSA wants to unionize further, like the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). I suggest that TSA agents form a union called the Service Hierarchy International Fraternity of Transportation Legion Employees Security Service, or SHIFTLESS. TSA agents say that they are just doing their job a job dened by them and not asked for by a majority of Americans. The more they try to justify themselves, the more work and job security they enjoy. If they increasingly unionize, Dems will view them as a voting bloc, not an unnecessary expense. Ron Hart is a syndicated op-ed humorist, award-winning author and TV/radio commentator.

Later, I will probably talk to or text my son cell phone to cell phone, similarly a few generations of technology away from NASA innovation. And, yes, I am concerned about the drive toward innovation now that NASA is a shadow and our space travel adventure has closed its chapter. But I am far more worried about America than my cell phone, laptop or personal computer. I am worried we lack drive and adventure and quest for the next frontier. And I am far more worried about the vacuum of leadership. Yes, Obama et al, I am worried about your leadership. Republicans who leave the room rather than ghting out best options demonstrate lack of leadership and vision. Democrats who fail to get the mandate to cool the budget and make hard choices lack leadership and vision. Its like being stuck in a continuous loop lm. We just replay the same script over and over again. Will no one break out with the bold vision like John Kennedy did? Will no one ask what they can do for their country rather than what the country can do for them? Get real. It wont hurt the billionaires to loose a tax loophole or two and it wont cost us any more jobs than were losing now. So charge em. And Medicaid reform is essential. And we could probably use some effective changes to Social Security and Medicare. Look, leaders, if it is broken it wont get better by ghting to preserve it as it is. And, while were at it, I bet we could nd a few billion hanging around under-used at the Pentagon. And we sure as all heck could spend our CIA money better than making dictators around the world rich. Heres what I propose. Shut up and put up. In other words, nd a solution to the debt ceiling crisis and eliminate the national debt. Tough, yes. But doable in an atmosphere of making shared goals. Then, lets work together on the next great American enterprise. Lets seize on our trip to the next frontier rather than how quickly we can walk out of a meeting. Whats next? A world without space travel STEVE LINER Managing Editor The recent showers have rejuvenated some of the berry plants so that we have reopened the stand from which we market our crop. Last Saturday, Jeep Sullivan, our First Baptist Church Mens Ministry pastor carried my husband shing, so I dropped everything to keep the business. Rather than run back and forth to the house, I grabbed a novel and a comfortable chair and settled in for a long, quiet day. Since weve had to close more than we opened, it was a quiet morning as I expected, but it turned out to be quite interesting. Watching the little mama wren as she made trip after trip to bring one little bug at a time to her four babies in the nest located in the end of the rolled up tarpaulin used as an awning for the blueberry shed held my attention for much of the morning. I marveled at her patient toil. I remembered the words to a preschool song we used when I taught 4 and 5-year-olds all those years. Who taught the bird to build her nest of hay and wool and moss? Who taught her how to build it best and lay the twigs across? Then, my mind went to the woman in Orlando on trial for the murder of her precious child. Humans are called the highest order in the animal kingdom and yet they are the only ones guilty of doing harm to their young. In all the hours I watched the little wren, I never saw her stop to feed herself nor get a drink of water. A few days later, my daughter and I were privileged to watch the edglings one by one venture out onto a perch and take their uttering solo ight as mama bird itted nearby. I quickly scooped up Trouble, the old white cat, and carried him inside lest he make a quick snack of the baby birds. I wish I knew the identity of all the bird sounds I hear as they it from tree to tree. I sit there and hear words as they call: judy, judy, judy, taylor, hilry, pretty, pretty, pretty, and sweet, sweet, sweet. For the rst time in several years, we are hearing a lot of Bob White! We have a pileated woodpecker which I hear often, but seldom get a glimpse of the large red, white and black feathered friend. I have yet to see the birds taking a quick splash in my gold sh pond as my husband has reported seeing. In the solitude I heard the whirring of humming bird wings and watched as the red throated missile hovered rst over the magenta colored phlox. Then, he approached the feeder which I had lled with sugar water, but he was very hesitant to disturb the dozens of honey bees stacked one upon another drinking their ll of the sweetness. The bees also enjoy drinking and getting their wings wet in the mist from the timed spray over the rooting bed near the blueberry shed. In addition to watching the birds and the bees, I also had blueberry customers, many of whom come back from year to year. I particularly recall on this day the Wiggins family, here from Lakeland area to attend a family reunion at the ag center. They gave me ripe and green tomatoes along with a couple of oranges. We enjoyed fried green tomatoes because of their generosity. Another couple with a 5 year old u-picked that day. They were so appreciative of being able to go out and pick. The little boy thanked me again and again for having the berry bushes. His mother said he kissed the plants and blessed them to make some more so that another little boy could pick some. With waiting on customers and studying the birds and the bees, my novel was quite neglected and before I knew it the shermen had returned. It was time for me to take myself inside and continue with never ending household chores. NOTE: My column was not identied as Happy Corner last week, but I am sure most regular readers knew that it was I who wrote the article and not Stewart Corbin, the subject of the piece. A lot of people tell me I should get a better picture for the column, but that was not it. A day at the blueberry shed studying the birds and the beesHAPPY CORNER Hazel Wells Tison Special to the Times-Advertiser We have added this to our We Couldnt Make This Up file. That is our fun folder that holds unbelievable stories revealing quirks of human nature that can be seen in a humorous light. They tend to come in waves! Watch this space next week for the story of the man run over by the bear again. Anyway, here goes: An inmate at the Calhoun County Jail was sentenced Wednesday to more than five years in the Department of Corrections after fighting officers when his pancakes were undercooked. Talris Terrell Sweet Tea Brown, 43, pleaded no contest to aggravated assault, resisting an officer with violence and introduction of contraband into the jail. He was sentenced to 67.2 months in prison Calhoun County Deputy Gary McGee was called to the jail Jan. 22 at 5:25 a.m. and found Brown facing-off with the guards in his cell. He had the ends of a broken mop handle in each hand. When McGee asked Brown what the problem was, Brown said his pancakes that morning were not properly cooked. McGee told him to put the mop handle down, but Brown replied, Bring all you can. You will have to kill me. McGee pointed his Taser at Brown and ordered him again to drop the handle but Brown swung at McGee who then Tased Brown in the chest. Brown dropped to the cell floor and officers got the broken handle away from him, but he continued to struggle. McGee tased him again, which allowed officers to get him under control and he was moved to isolation. The mop handle was considered contraband because it was used as a weapon. Brown had been sentenced on May 5, 2010, to 11 months and 29 days in the Calhoun County jail for drug possession. He had a maximum of four months left on his sentence when this incident occurred.

Given the recent devas tation caused by tornadoes and ooding in communi ties from New England and the Midwest to the South ern states, and the start of the Atlantic Hurricane sea son, we recognize the im portance of helping people learn how to protect them selves, said SBA Adminis trator Karen Mills. This collaboration with the Red Cross will allow us to draw on each others resources to make emergency prepared ness a way of life for individ uals and businesses. Studies show that be tween 15 percent to 40 percent of businesses fail following a natural or manmade disaster, said Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the American Red Cross. By partnering with the SBA to get more fami lies and businesses pre pared for emergencies, we hope to save both lives and livelihoods. The core of the SBA-Red Cross agreement is a plan to work with SBA District Ofces and its resource partners such as SCORE, the Small Business Devel opment Centers and the Womens Business Devel opment Centers to pro mote and, along with local Red Cross chapters, spon sor preparedness train ing workshops. The two agencies will also work to increase awareness in the business community about the Red Cross Ready Rat ing program. Ready Rating ( is a free, self-paced, web-based membership program that helps a business measure its ability to deal with emer gencies, and gives custom ized feedback on how to im prove those efforts. Materials on the Ready Rating program and other disaster preparedness tips will be disseminated to the public virtually, and via printed materials. Recent disasters have served as a reminder for in dividuals and businesses to make a plan. Disaster pre paredness for homes and businesses should include a review of your property insurance to make sure you understand what is and isnt covered. Make backup cop ies of important documents, and store them at an off site location. Put together an emergency kit, which contains rst-aid supplies, cash, bottled water, nonperishable food, a ashlight and plastic garbage bags.

Community CALENDAR


OUTD OO RS | Send your Outdoors news to A Section Saltwater shing is atop the whats hot list. The water is as clear as a bell except for the green slime that sort of messes up shing from the beach. Everyone who snapper shes knows the season goes out on July 18. A rumor was started about an extension of the season in the fall, but thats all it was a rumor. Soon well have to look for other sh to catch, but theyre available. Spanish mackerel: The Spanish mackerel havent gone anywhere. If anything they have gotten bigger than anytime I can remember. Some years ago a 6or 7-pound Spanish mackerel made the headlines. If you go out in 10 feet of water in the Gulf and shut off your motor and drift you will see schools of Spanish swimming under the boat along with ladysh of gigantic proportions. Just drop anchor and chum and I am certain you will catch Spanish of sizes you have never heard of while shing in the bay this spring. Dragging a spoon with several different-colored hooks and catching ve or six mackerel of maybe a pound is nothing compared to catching one at a time in the 5to 6pound category. Kings: The king mackerel are as thick as eas and are easy to get to bite. If you have the money stop by the bait boat and ll up with live cigar minnows, or gold hook a livewell full and head for the nearest bridge span and catch your limit in short order. That is if you can keep amberjack off your bait long enough for a king to eat it. Hooked on Outdoors SPECIAL TO FLORIDA FREEDOM Steve Reeves hoists a 58-pound cubera snapper caught July 1 aboard the Blow-Up Barge. SPECIAL TO FLORIDA FREEDOM Mckenzie Carter of Blountstown displays her 6-pound, 9ounce bass reeled in during a recent shing trip. HOOK & H AR V E S T Scott Lindsey Outdoor Writer SPECIAL TO FLORIDA FREEDOM Kerry Agerton of Panama City Beach hauled in a 41-pound king mackerel. By Stan Kirkland Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Most days, Joe Littleton oc cupies himself with running his Panama City landscaping busi ness. However, shing is never far from his mind, particularly shing for red snapper. Describing this as the best season ever, Littleton said not only is he seeing a lot of red snap per, but big sh as well. His com ments seem to be consistent with what other shermen are report ing along the Gulf Coast. On our rst trip there were ten of us and we caught 24 sh that weighed 15-20 pounds each, Littleton said. Since our bag limit is two each, we released four sh, but that got the season off to a great start. Thus far, Littleton said hes made nine trips since the opening of snapper season June 1 and hes never seen so many red snapper. The surplus of sh, he said, gives anglers the opportunity to be se lective about what they keep. If it doesnt weight 10 pounds, it goes back over the side, he said. Fishing from his 38-foot Sport sherman named the Escape, Lit tleton said hes done well shing south of Cape San Blas 10-15 miles out and points further west. He said he rarely shes more than 35 miles from the Panama City Pass. Pulling up to most of their shing spots, Littleton said the bottom machine usually lights up with the telltale signatures of sh. After they catch one or two sh, he said what happens next is hard to explain to someone whos never been out there. Red snapper are such a pred atory sh, theyll literally come up off the bottom and suspend some times 50 feet off the bottom and sometimes theyll be right under your boat, so close it looks like you can gaff them, he said. While many red snapper an glers prefer to use live bait, Little ton said it doesnt matter. Theres so many sh theyll hit live bait, cutbait, and even rank, dead bait, he said. When you drop your rig down, you just need to be ready. One thing he has noticed this year, in comparison to years past, is the near absence of other types of reef sh. He said in all their trips this season theyve caught one red grouper and three triggersh. Floridas red snapper season this year runs 48 days in both state and federal waters. The season opened June 1 and ends at mid night July 18. The daily bag limit is two per person. Legal sh must be 16 inches or longer. Littleton said he recognizes the shortened seasons and bag limits as part of the red snapper rebuild ing plan for the Gulf of Mexico, but he is hopeful the seasons will be lengthened and bag limits in creased down the road.

SP O RT S A Section By Brad Milner Florida Freedom Newspapers Saturdays blue marlin wasnt a rst for young Russell Bailey, but it was for his fam ily, and it provided an ample payday. Fishing aboard Pipe Dream, Bailey hauled in a 120-inch blue marlin on Friday. The boat was too far away to make it to the Bay Point Invitational Billsh Tournament weigh-in scale that day, so the anglers trolled the Gulf of Mexico for most of Saturday with the blue mar lin cradled in the corner of the back of the boat. The marlin was estimated to lose upward of 50 pounds over the day. It still taxed the scale at 665 pounds, placing it in rst, with Bay Point only recogniz ing the top catch in the division for tournament winnings. With additional optional payoffs, Bai leys catch was worth $187,574. When asked if it was his rst blue marlin he said, No, Ive been doing this awhile. Awhile for the 21-year-old out of Houston is all of six years. And if that felt like forever for Bailey, it was an eternity for coboat owner Don Milner Sr. It was Milners rst blue marlin brought into a billsh tournament in more than 20 years of competition. You dont realize, but ev erything has to go right for you to land a sh like that, Milner said. Its difcult; wed have good ones, and then theyd be gone in a ash. Bailey said the atmosphere on the boat on Saturday was laid back, as the team presumed the blue marlin would surpass the two brought in on Friday. It wasnt until it was conrmed that he felt a sense of relief. Im proud of our team. We knew we had a good one, just didnt know how good, Bailey said. Im also proud to be the one nally reeling it in for them, adding that co-boat owner Bar ry Milner also was vindicated. Bailey wasnt sure how much of the check he would receive for setting the family bench mark. He said he hoped Don and Barry would allow for nego tiations when celebrations went into the night. It was also a good day for Blake Roberts, whose 42.2pound winning dolphin was expected to be worth close to $84,000 in tournament and op tional winnings. His dolphin edged James Smiths secondplace offering by one pound. A trio of female anglers col lected more than $100,000 in the tuna division. Sherry Polks 134.2-pounder was rst and worth an estimated $58,000. Laurie McVay was second at 103.8, worth around $25,000, and Judy Wiremans was third at 97.6 and worth close to $20,000. The quest for a new state re cord and a $1 million award in the swordsh division fell short, but two boats did weigh in sh in the category. Bill Young won the division with a 134.2-pounder that was the rst sh weighed on Saturday. Holmes Valley Battle of the Bats to be held in Vernon VERNON Vernons youth baseball team is hosting a fundraiser and warmup for the upcoming state tournament with the Holmes Valley Battle of the Bats at the Vernon SportsPlex on July 16-17.

Many consumers still have the misperception that Florida seafood was adverse ly affected by the oil spill of more than a year ago, said Commissioner Adam Put nam. Our testing shows that Florida seafood has not been impacted by the oil spill, and we want consumers to know that Florida seafood is safe and available to enjoy. Between August 2010 and June 2011, the Departments Division of Food Safety screened 297 samples of n sh and shellsh for possible oil contamination from poly cyclic aromatic hydrocar bons (PAHs). All ndings are well below the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) levels of concern. Despite the proven safety of Floridas Gulf seafood, the public remains wary. In a survey conducted in April 2011, 63 percent of Florid ians voiced concern about the safety of Florida Gulf seafood, an increase from 48 percent in January 2011. A majority of Floridians (59 percent) remain concerned about the unforeseen risks of the oil spill on the safety of seafood. FDACS has partnered with Florida Outdoor Advertising Association to communicate the Florida Gulf Safe mes sage on billboards statewide and with the Florida Depart ment of Transportation to reach travelers on Floridas Turnpike via tollbooth signs. Full-page ads will appear in magazines that target chefs and restaurateurs, as well as in upscale consumer maga zines. Tabletop displays will be distributed to restaurants and seafood retailers to reach consumers where they shop. Sales of Florida Gulf seafood continue to lag, and thats hurting our states commercial shermen, said Nelson Mongiovi, director of marketing and development at FDACS. By getting out the word that Florida Gulf seafood is rigorously tested in state food safety labs, we hope more consumers will once again enjoy their Flori da seafood favorites. The Florida Gulf Safe message will also reach na tional audiences through a special Sustainable Seafood Issue of Guy Harvey Maga zine, which is named for the acclaimed marine conserva tionist and artist. The July is sue features an article about FDACS ongoing testing of Gulf seafood. The article fea tures scientists of the depart ments Chemical Residue Laboratory and reviews the results of their testing of n sh and shellsh for possible PHA contaminants from the oil spill. The special issue also in cludes an article on Gulf Wild, a program in which Florida Gulf commercial sh ermen identify their catch with gill tags that enable retailers and consumers to discover the location where a sh was caught and by which shing vessel and captain. The article highlights how vital marine species have rebounded through conser vation methods that help cre ate healthy and sustainable sheries and how the future of aquaculture can play an important role in helping feed the increasing global population.

That rst ball at the baseball com plex at Chipley High School will mark the arrival of hundreds of baseball players and their fami lies to a weekend-long all-star tournament. Among teams playing in the combined two-league tourna ment will be the two teams from Chipley and one from Bonifay that made it through elimina tions to qualify, according to tournament director and Chi pley High School Head Baseball Coach Andy Compton.

A copy of the documents can be reviewed Monday-Thurs day from 7:00 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. at the Holmes County Special to the Times-Advertiser TALLAHASSEE The Interna tional Union of Police Associa tions, (IUPA) has joined a law suit that seeks to overturn the new requirement that public em ployees, including law enforce ment personnel, will be required to contribute 3 percent of their pay toward their pensions and that reduces the cost of living adjustments for new retirees. The suit was recently led against Gov. Rick Scott and other state leaders over a new mandate that public employees participating in the state retire ment system contribute 3 per cent of their salary toward their pensions. The unions will argue that the legislation mandating the 3 percent contribution is unconstitutional. Supporters of the suit main tain that requiring current par ticipants to contribute to the Florida Retirement System is the equivalent of imposing a new tax on them as well as a violation of existing agreements. By joining the suit on behalf of all of its members and the law enforcement ofcers it repre sents who currently participate in the FRS system, IUPA is seek ing to have the law declared in valid and to have the 3 percent contributions refunded to the participants. Because law enforcement of cers, reghters and other public employees face the same imposi tion of a 3 percent contribution to the fund, the police union asserts that imposing the mandatory con tribution on current employees is not only a violation of established contractual obligations, but is es sentially a 3 percent pay cut. It is important to realize that the state is jeopardizing the public safety by imposing unfair requirements on our police of cers and deputies, said IUPAs international president, Sam A. Cabral. Scott and the people supporting him should not be permitted to balance the budget on the backs of our children or the safety of the public. Critics of dened benets programs under the FRS have claimed said it is in nancial trouble and will cost more in the future than local and state gov ernments can afford in the fu ture. However, earlier this year Raymond Edmondson, chief ex ecutive ofcer of the Florida Pub lic Pension Trustees Association, said the programs are safe for employers and employees alike. Theres nothing wrong with the system, he said. To talk about pension reform, theyre reforming something thats not broken. The court has scheduled a tri al on the suit to begin Oct. 26.

When a man and woman are joined together in matrimony and become one, they are in a sense surrendering their lives to each other. They are making a commitment to love and devoting their lives for the betterment of each other. A lov ing marriage is more we and less I, and each partner should act and behave for the good of both. A loving rela tionship involves many aspects of acceptance, understanding, and most of all, supporting each other to make the bonds of love stronger. Just as a husband and wife should yield to each other, we should also surrender our lives to our Heavenly Father. We are called to be witnesses and ambas sadors for our Lord and Savior, and the way in which we behave and live our lives should be a good example for the glory of God. We should Gods love for us. God wants us to have a suc cessful life, and when we are submissive and include Him in our activities, He will bless us eternally with His everlasting love. Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ. -R.S.V. Ephesians 5:21 Hwy. 77 S, Chipley 638-4097 Hwy. 79 S., Bonifay 547-9688 Stephen B.

Surrendering Yourself ??????? Have you ever noticed that children, when they want something or think that they deserve something, get loud and are not ashamed to let everyone know how they feel and what they are thinking? However, when they get something they have asked for and the mother says, Now, what are you supposed to say? they get a shy look on their face and whisper, Thank you. The same is also true in the lives of many of us adults. We can be obnoxious, rude and loud in stores and any place we please it seems, but when it comes to being thankful for the blessings that God or others send our way, or even in showing our patriotism, we tend to think silence is golden, afraid of what others may think or that we might offend someone. In Luke 17, Luke shares with us something that he witnessed as he was walking with Jesus Christ one day. Apparently, ten people who had the deadly and very painful disease of leprosy had heard how Jesus healed the blind, lame and even lepers like themselves (Matthew 8:2; 11:50). These ten heard that Jesus was coming through Samaria and Galilee as He went to Jerusalem, so like children they stood afar off. And lifted their voices (Luke 17:12b13a NKJV). In other words, they yelled very loudly so that all could hear that they wanted something from Jesus. Luke tells us that as Jesus heard their voices, crying out for mercy that He said to them, Go show yourselves to the Priest, (Luke 17:14b). Then Luke tells us that as they went toward the priest, they were healed. This tells us that they were healed not because they deserved healing, but because they believed the words of Christ and were obedient in how He had instructed them. First of all, this is a great lesson for each of us today in that as Saul learned, obedience is better than sacrifice or lip service (1 Samuel 15:22-23). This means, we should read His Word and live as it says, without making adjustments to suit us. But the trend nowadays is to talk about our sacrifice, by talking about God, while hardly ever truly opening His Holy Word (the Bible) because it condemns and convicts us of sins against God that are in our lives. But the heart of what Luke witnessed and wanted to share with us was that if we are going to complain and demand out loud, we should give thanks and praise out loud. Luke says that only one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned and with a loud voice glorified God and fell down at His feet, giving Him thanks (Luke 17:15-16). Luke also tells us that the one who came back was a Samaritan, which if you were a Jew living in that day, was basically the people on the other side of the tracks or the river, with which you would not be associated. This brings to mind something that I heard once, which is, Those who have the least are the most thankful. As you read Jesus response to the one who came back to say thank you, you can get the impression that He was somewhat disappointed and that there is a tone of grief and indignation in His words as He says, Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? (Luke 17:17). Do you think our blessed Lord was concerned that the natural duty of gratitude was forgotten? The great thing that I noted as I read Lukes account of this event, was that the one who came back to give thanks, glorified Him with a loud voice and worshiped Him unashamedly; not like a shy child being forced to say thank you. Most who will read this have the privilege to live in America, where we have the freedom to worship as we please, though most worship the creation (beaches, mountains, rivers, the body, time, etc.) more than the Creator. May we take a challenge from this passage and begin everyday to be thankful for the privilege to live in America and let our patriotism be lived out loud. May we be grateful for life and the opportunity to have eternal life through Jesus Christ and live our gratefulness out loud for a Holy God, Who is righteous and just, every moment of our lives! May we be loud in our praises for the unfailing goodness of God! Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from all form (appearance KJV) of evil, (1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 NKJV).

See OBITUARIES B4 Obituaries FROM THE HEART Tim Hall How hard is it to give BLANK (you ll in your toughest issue for yourself) to God? I know that is what He wants and expects me to do: give my hardest problems and deepest challenges to Him. I even know that this is the only coping strategy in my life that makes sense. But letting go and letting God is my most difcult spiritual challenge. What about you? As a journalist, what Im accustomed to doing is becoming an expert (at least temporarily) on some topic and then helping you understand that topic and its importance to you or our shared community. Not so this problem. I doubt I will ever be an expert on this topic. There are times when I want to let go, need to let go and should let go. At those times I try to let go. But, like some magnetic worry beads, I nd that I keep reaching for my problem. And it is never in a positive way. Last night, as I worried over a situation, I tried to still my troubled spirit by remembering Christ in the garden. This is the classic example of letting go and letting God. Jesus was so troubled His sweat was like drops of blood. Now that is concern! And I believe there was a heavy dose of fear mixed in. I know if I were facing humiliation, trials, ogging, dragging a cross and then being nailed to it until I died, I would be afraid. I believe Christ clearly saw that future and His human spirit was afraid. Otherwise, His wouldnt be a true sacrice, would it? Yet, He was able to face theses trials and death with calm because He had successfully given away His situation. So, if He can face that and turn that over, why cant I successfully turn my petty problem over and gain peace? Well, of course, when you consider the situation in light of Christ in the garden, it is obvious that God is in charge and that with Him in charge whatever happens is for the best. So, I will continue to try to ght my fears, live with courage and trust in Gods plan for my life. But, you know what? Its a lot harder than it sounds. How hard is it to give it to God?
