Holmes County's JR Miles (3) tries to escape the grasp of Chipley's Josh Johnson (4) in
Bonifay on Friday. The Tigers defeated the Blue Devils 27-6 to win the Rural Region 2-
1A championship. Chipley will advance to the Class 1A state semifinal this Friday at
Bratt Northview, which defeated Freeport on Friday for the Region 1 championship. The
winner of that game will play for the first rural state title the following week in Orlando.

Jobless rate down slightly

From Staff Reports

County's unemployment rate
was down slightly in October,
a trend that carried across the
panhandle. Holmes' jobless
rate was 7.6 percent, compared
to 8.1 percent in September
and 8.3 percent a year ago.
Florida's overall unemploy-
ment rate is 10.3 percent.
Kim Bodine, executive direc-
tor of the Gulf Coast Workforce
Board, said the region's num-
bers look a little different but
indicated no real change.
"It has been steady," she
said, adding that she doesn't
see any relief in sight for the
unemployed for quite awhile.
"I don't think you'll see any
real change until 2013," Bodine
said, "and I think I am being op-
timistic about that.
"Typically the unemploy-
ment rate creeps up as we
move into the winter months
and tourism slows down; how-
ever, some of those losses are
offset by hiring for the holiday
shopping season, which begins
in October," Bodine wrote in a
prepared statement.
Florida's seasonally adjust-




ed unemployment rate of 10.3
percent is the lowest since June
2009, when it was 10.2 percent.
That represents 955,000 jobless
out of a labor force of 9,228,000.
The state's unemployment
rate is down 0.3 percentage
point from September 2011 and
is 1.5 percentage points lower
than the October 2010 rate of
11.8 percent. The U.S. unem-
ployment rate stood at 9 per-
cent in October; Florida's rate
has been higher than the nation
since February 2008.
The Institute for Economic
Competitiveness College of
Business Administration at the
University of South Florida this

month released its quarterly
forecast, noting that underem-
ployment is "an even bigger
problem" and stands at 16.5
percent in September, up from
August 2011 of 16.2 percent.
Underemployed workers are
either "overqualified" or "over-
educated" for their current jobs
or they are working part time
and have been looking for full-
time work.
Washington County's unem-
ployment decreased from 10.6
percent in September to 10.3
percent in October. In Jackson
County, the rate fell from 8.4
percent in September to 7.9 in

HCSO: Meth

lab busted

in Bonifay
By Cecilia Spears
BONIFAY Holmes County sheriff's

ATD Construction

earns water

treatment bid
By Cecilia Spears
BONIFAY The Bonifay City Council
approved of going with the lowest bid
for the city's new waste treatment fa-
cility during the regularly scheduled
meeting Nov. 28. The bid was awarded
to ATD Construction for $3,602,400,
which is $300,000 more than what is be-
ing given to the city by USDA. The vote
is pending that the additional funds
are made available through USDA.
City grant writer Bob Jones assured
the council that it would not affect the
present sewer or water rates for the
"The transaction should be fairly
painless, and the rates shouldn't
change," Jones said. "They should have
a possible proposal by next meeting."
City Attorney Lucus Taylor gave an
update regarding some commercial
property in town that the landowner
wished to amend so it is under the
city's comprehensive plan instead of
the county's comprehensive plan.
"Its just moving it from the county
comp plan, which is slightly more
limited than the city's comp plan, to the
city's comp plan," Taylor said. "Since
it's presently under the county's comp
plan, the county is able to dictate what's
being built on city property."
Taylor said the amendment would
have to be advertised immediately to
meet the Dec. 28 deadline, which means
two meetings with public hearings are

Sidney Johnson Laser Works: A Holmes County industry

I've been saying that we
need a new street number
sign for a long time, and
with family coming
for Thanksgiving,
we've been trying
to spruce up the
place a bit. As
the countdown
for the big day
drew nearer, I
took matters into HAPPY
my own hands Hazel
last week, pulled
the number board off,
scraped the remainder
a bit and slapped some
paint on it. Then, I bought
some new numbers to
replace the rotten ones,
which my husband had so
meticulously sawed out.
He devised a way to get
the numbers back up, but
the rest of the sign looked
too blank, so we went up
to Sidney Johnson's to
see what kind of metal
ornament we might find.
I had seen some of
his metal cut-outs at a
fundraiser at Mt. Zion


Church, and my husband
had also got him to make
a replacement metal
Sdrum for his honey
extractor. I had no
idea, however, of
the scope of the
work being done
up on Highway 2
at Johnson's Laser
CORNER Sid treated us
Is Tison to a tour of his
factory. There
we saw A.J.Mattox of
Esto operating a laser
cutter, noiselessly
cutting eight- or 10-foot
curved metal strips, and
drilling mounting holes
at prescribed spots.
This is just one of any
number of tasks that can
be performed in this way.
The industry that orders
the metal work sends
the design via computer,
which then transfers the
design to the machine,
and it in turn cuts it. The
operator stands by to lift
each piece off where it is

packed and shipped.
In another 60 by 100-
foot building is an HD
plasma cutter. It can cut
steel up to two inches
thick into whatever shape
is ordered. Welders are
also on staff who can
custom weld the smallest
or the largest parts.
Sidney is one of the
seven children of Coach
L.T. Johnson and his wife
Ola (Smith). The four
sons and 3 daughters all
attended Poplar Springs
School, where their Dad,
L.T., coached until his
untimely death when
Sid was a senior in high
school. At that time no
one had any idea that
Sid would be marketing
a product with a national
and international
scope. In fact, most of
the technology used in
his operation has been
developed since his high
school graduation.
Where did he learn to
do the things required

in the business? After
finishing Chipola Junior
College in Marianna
in 1964 as a basketball
stand-out, he accepted
a basketball scholarship
to the University of
Tennessee and graduated
with a degree in education.
After one year teaching
math and science at
Vernon, he found that
teaching was not for
him. He worked for Sony
in Dothan for 10 years
and for an additional 15
years for a metal working
company in Dothan. He,
with a coworker, Todd
Johnson (no relation),
from Arriton, Ala.,
joined forces to start
the business back home
in Holmes County. The
business now employs
six full-time employees,
including Jason Seluga
of Esto and Michael
Bolen of Chipley, Sidney,
and his wife Suzette, the
bookkeeper and office

Sidney is the
current Holmes County
School Board member
representing district 5.
They are the parents of
two adult daughters and
one son.
The ornamental
designs are a sideline
business which is not fully
developed, but has the
potential for being more
than just a sideline. It
adds a little spice to the
colorless work required
to make parts for heavy
industry. When asked
how he advertises his
business, he said it is only
through word of mouth by
those involved in related
industries. Two other
metal working businesses
in Bonifay make use of
some of Johnson's skills.
The other offspring
of L.T. and Lois (Smith)
Johnson mostly live in
the area. She still lives at
the home place at age 92.
L.T. Jr. (Sonny) is retired
from USDA and lives near

the home place. Myrniece
is retired and lives in
Chipley. Naomi lives in
Slocomb; Samantha works
in home health care,
and Cynthia works in
insurance. Both live in the
Poplar Springs community.
Olen died in an automobile
accident several years
ago. The farthest away is
one of the twins, Donnie,
who lives in Suffolk, Va.,
and works for the USDA.
He and brother Ronnie
played on Poplar Springs
basketball team for the
two years that they won
the state championship for
class C. Herman Dodson
was the coach and Sonny
Johnson was the assistant.
It is good to report on
another large hardworking
family's contributions to
the community. We are
proud to see one of our
own who has brought
his skills back to the
county where his far-
reaching business gives
employment to others.

More than half of all
cats owned in the United
States are obese and
one in every 50 cats is
diabetic. Every November,
Americans give thanks
on Thanksgiving and
they also observe
National Diabetes
Month. According to Dr.
Katherine Scott, lecturer
at the Texas A&M College
of Veterinary Medicine
& Biomedical Sciences
(CVM), feline obesity is
one of the most common
reasons cats become
diabetic. During this
season of entertaining,
remember to have healthy
options for your cat too.
"Diabetes may occur in
any age, breed, or gender
of a cat, but we see this
disorder most commonly
in middle-aged to older
cats," Scott says.
Feline diabetes is very
similar to type 2 diabetes
in humans. Feline
diabetes is a deficiency
in the body's ability to
change glucose (sugar)
into energy. Insulin is
needed for glucose to
be transferred from the
blood to the cells. Type 2
diabetes develops when
the body does not properly
respond to insulin or is
resistant to the effects of
insulin and cannot move
glucose into cells.
Scott explains that like
type 2 diabetes in humans,
there is almost always
a predisposing factor
enabling feline diabetes to
"Feline obesity is one of
the most common reasons
cats become diabetic,"
Scott says. "They can also
become diabetic after
receiving some types of
medications like steroids
or progesterone. Other
diseases like pancreatitis,
cancer, or an overactive
thyroid might also be to

Scott indicates that
there are signs owners
can watch out for that
are indicative of diabetes.
The most common
signs are an increase in
water intake, urinating
more often and in larger
quantities, excessive
appetite, and weight loss.
"If owners note a
change in the size or
amount of clumps in
their cats' litter boxes, or
the water bowl is always
empty, it is definitely
a good reason to have
them checked out by
a veterinarian," Scott
If owners are dedicated
and well-informed,
feline diabetes is
manageable for affected
cats and their owners.
Sometimes diabetes
can be temporarily or
permanently cured
dependent upon how long
diabetes was present in
the cat.
Your veterinarian will
help you with the best
treatment plan for your
cat. For standard therapy,
Scott recommends giving
your cat injections of
glargine (insulin also
given to people with type 2
diabetes) twice a day.
"Along with the insulin
injections we also almost
always switch cats to a
low-carbohydrate diet
known as the 'catkins'
diet," Scott says. "This
diet sometimes alleviates
the need for insulin
For more information
on low-carbohydrate diets
for cats see a recent pet
talk titled Low Carb for
Cats at vetmed.tamu.edu/
Scott adds, "Diabetes
is a very manageable
disease in cats that

responds very well to
therapy. However, it is
a real commitment for
owners of these cats.
Owners have to learn to
give insulin injections,
make time to give these
injections twice daily,
and bring their cats in at
least every 3-6 months for
veterinary visits. Some
owners even learn how to
monitor their cats' blood
glucose levels at home
using a glucometer, just
like people do."
The most important
preventative measure
owners can take to avoid
the pitfalls of feline
diabetes is to keep their
cats healthy and slim.
"We can't control some
of the diseases our cats
will get that will result
in the development of
diabetes, but owners have
complete control over how
many calories their cats
can eat," Scott states.
So during this time of
Thanksgiving, show some
gratitude toward your
beloved cats by providing
them with a healthy diet
to ensure a healthy, happy
life. In the meantime,
it is important to stay
informed and be cautious
of your cat's habits. If you
suspect or have any
questions about your
cat and/or diabetes

Hunting season a perfect time for

conservation-minded holiday sharing, gifts

By Florida Fish and Wildlife

The holiday season is
here, bringing with it some
much-appreciated cooler
weather to the Sunshine
Many of us will be
taking time off from work,
and children will be out
of school on winter break
soon. For me, this much-
needed vacation provides
a wonderful opportunity to
take to the woods and go
hunting, now that hunting
season is in full swing.
It's also a perfect time
to give children supervised
hunting experiences with
Hunting is a proven
and very necessary tool
of wildlife and habitat
management, especially
when habitat is lost to
urbanization and wildlife
gets displaced because of
our state's ever-growing
Scientific findings have

shown that those who hunt
and engage in outdoor
recreation with their
families develop a sense of
stewardship for nature and
a desire to conserve it.
In fact, hunters form
a foundation for wildlife
conservation. Through the
sale of hunting licenses
and permits, and the
excise tax generated
from hunting equipment,
hunters as a whole pay
most of the cost of wildlife
conservation and research,
public land acquisitions,
habitat protection, science-
based fish and wildlife
management and law
enforcement. All of us get
to enjoy the benefits of
these efforts.
Even non-hunting
spouses and significant
others can share in the
spirit of stewardship with a
couple of good holiday gift
For the hunters (or
anglers) in your family or
circle, why not buy them a
five-year license, or make
a stocking-
- stuffer of
a one-year
license? Licenses may
be purchased at wwwl.

If they already have one
of those, consider getting
them a conservation
license plate for their
vehicle. Not only will one
of them look great on their
truck, recreational vehicle
or car, but in
you will
be helping to
conserve wildlife for
generations to come.
To order online, go to

Buyaplate.com. You can
also purchase or renew
any plate at your local tax
collector's office.
Here's how hunters can
enjoy the many traditional
hunting seasons Florida
During general gun
season, which coincides
with holiday-gift-shopping
time, most hunters are in
pursuit of deer, but they
also can bag wild hogs,
rabbits, raccoons and
coyotes. And quail and
gray squirrel season is in
and runs through March
4. Snipe season is also in
and runs through Feb. 15
Bird hunters wanting
to experience something
different should try
hunting woodcock.
Woodcock season runs
Dec. 18 Jan. 31 statewide,
and they make excellent
game birds because they
provide a challenging
shot when flushed. Small-
game hunting such as
this provides a great
opportunity to introduce
a kid to the great sport of
And for all the duck
hunters out there, the
second phase of the
waterfowl and coot season
will last through Jan. 29
and includes geese.
As you can see, the
winter holidays provide
a wealth of opportunities,
from sharing time with
family to giving a gift that
is both personal
and conservation-minded,
to experiencing the
heritage of hunting
in Florida's great outdoors.

Franklin County embraces'

r g g

c~~~ n coGIa z

By Lois Swoboda
Florida Freedom Newspapers
The Franklin County Tourist
Development Council is sponsoring
a contest to promote geocaching to
attract tourists to the area.
Geocaching, which combines
the terms "geographical" and
"cache," is an outdoor adventure
that sends seekers on a treasure
hunt for containers of trinkets and
prizes. Participants use a Global
Positioning System receiver (GPSr)
to hide and seek containers called
"geocaches." A typical cache is a
waterproof container containing a
According to Groundspeak,
the organizer of the game, (www.
geocaching.com), there are nearly
200 geocache sites in our forests
and towns and dotting the coast
between Alligator Point and the
western edge of Franklin County.
Around the world, there are
more than 1.2 million geocaches
registered with Groundspeak,
including five in Antarctica and
two on Easter Island.
The contest launched on
Halloween. Here's how it
works: Hidden somewhere in
Franklin County is a puzzle
cache (GC369DD) containing 100
coupons, each good for a Salty
geocoin. The oyster-shaped coins
were minted especially for the
Franklin County contest.
Geocoins are collected by
geocachers and retail for anywhere
from $10 to $40, with some rare
coins selling for significantly more.
The coins are awarded to winners
at local visitor centers.
Contestants must find
geographical coordinates hidden in
the lids of geocaches in the county
to locate the final container.
As of Nov 21, the puzzle had
been solved by 15 searchers, and
all but one has collected his or her
First to solve the puzzle was
Sheila Walaszek of Orlando, who
was staying on St. George Island
when she learned of the contest in
an article in Forgotten Coastline

Salty Geocoin Challenge from Cindy Steiger at the Apalachicola
Visitor Center.

( This is a good way to introduce people to the
area. We didn't have any plans to visit otherwise, and
really like the area. Thanks for the fun."

Salty Geocoin Challenge participants

Walaszek said she was thrilled
to be first to solve the puzzle. "It
was the first time I've ever really
won anything," she said.
Walaszek said she visits the
area annually to bicycle, rollerblade
and spend time on the beach with
her dog Daisy. "When I come here
I always plan on caching," she
said. "You see so many things you
wouldn't otherwise see."
The contest was funded with BP
grant money.
The idea is to lure visitors to the
area for the first time.
So far it seems to be working.
A couple who drove to the
county to attempt the challenge
wrote, "Completed this today after
our visit to Tallahassee. We had no
idea that there was this big festival
going on. We wrote one of the

numbers down wrong, which led us
on a wild goose chase for the final.
No regrets.
"We got out of the truck and
a mother bear and her two cubs
went running across the street
in front of us. As we were driving
away, we spotted a gray fox.
Rechecked our numbers and
made the find. The coin dealer was
closed so we didn't get our coins
yet. Great excuse to come back
and explore some more without
the crowds.
"This is a good way to introduce
people to the area. We didn't have
any plans to visit otherwise, and
really like the area. Thanks for the
fun," wrote the couple.
The contest will continue until
April or until all of the coins have
been claimed.

A flounder breaks the surface. This was the smallest of
a pair of flounder hooked by Tina Harbuck earlier this
week. A flounder has to be at least 12 inches to keep.

A holiday two-fer:

Family and fishing

The Thanksgiving
holidays are all about
spending time with family.
And if you can combine that
with fishing it's a two-for-
one deal, for sure.
After watching
folks bring in tons
of fish during the
Destin Fishing
Rodeo in October,
the fisherman in me
gets a little antsy
and wants to catch a
few big ones. T
A few weeks ago, HAR
we went in search of Florida
redfish right here in
our backyard at Crab Island.
We brought in some huge
reds on top-water lures.
This week, I got a two-
fer. I spent a couple of days
fishing with my brother
Jerry near Apalachicola. My
sister and brother-in-law,
Anita and Ken, were also
down at the river. It doesn't
get much better than that.
Jerry and I were
targeting speckled trout on
the first day.
Armed with a 6-and-
a-half foot-long rod and
Shimano spinning reels
loaded with 15-pound
test Power Pro Braid, we
headed down river. We did
have about a 2-foot 30-pound
Braid leader to help guard
against those fish with
sharp teeth that might cut
through the line. Without
giving away any particular
spots, because my brother
would kill me, we were
fishing down on the flats of
the St. Marks River and the
Little St. Marks.
On the first stop, Jerry,
bumping a Bass Assassin
Sea Shad off the bottom
with a one-fourth-ounce jig
head, lured in Mr. Trout.
The color of bait for the day
was the "acid rain," or the
blue and chartreuse shad.
Jerry had a few more bites
on the "acid rain" color
than I did on the blue and
chartreuse but they
both seemed to be crowd
The first trout in the
boat measured at 18 inches
- well in the slot limit.
Don't forget, the bag
limit for speckled trout is
five per day, and it has to
fall in the 15-to-20-inch slot.
Included in that five per day,
anglers can take one

L *


bigger than 20 inches.
We ventured on down the
river, and I managed to snag
a few trout myself, but all
mine were coming up about
an inch short. But there's
still nothing like the
tug on the line to
get the adrenaline
Anita and Ken
were at a different
spot closer to
Apalachicola Bay
NA and were catching
BUCK their share of trout
Freedom also. When Anita
called, they just
about had their limit. Again,
they weren't giving up any
On day two, we put in at
about the same spot and
headed up the river and
tried fishing for flounder.
We didn't change any of
the tackle, not even the kind
of bait. The limit on flounder
is 10 per day, and they have
to measure at least 12
inches long.
This day was mine. I
got the first hit, and it was
what we went after the
flat fish. Fishing in about 30
feet of water, the flounder
snagged the shad right off
the bottom. Wasn't sure
exactly what it was, but it
wasn't moving and shaking
its head like a trout tends
to do. It was just a heavy
pull. The flounder was just
barely in the slot limit so we
tossed it back.
Minutes later I had
another fish on. When the
string started to zing, I
knew it was a good one.
"Get the net," I said.
Jerry stopped and tried
to assist me. When I saw
the size of the flounder as
it surfaced, I got a little
"Get it closer to the
boat," Jerry said. At that
point, in all the excitement
I tried to hoist the fish into
the boat and when I did, the
flounder spit the hook
The flounder looked to
be at least a 4-or 5-pounder.
It was huge.
So the lesson learned
from this is be patient
and keep the fish in the
water so your fishing buddy
can get the net under the

but at least I got to see it.

Tigers advance to 1A semifinal at Northview

By Brad Milner
Florida Freedom Newspapers

BONIFAY Chipley didn't
score during the second half
of their regular-season loss to
Holmes County Friday night.
The Tigers produced a second-
half backbreaker in a much more
meaningful game.
The Tigers defeated the Blue
Devils 27-6 to win the Rural Region
2-1A championship. Chipley
advanced to the Class 1A state
semifinal taking place next week
at Bratt Northview.
Bratt Northview defeated
Freeport on Friday for the Region
1 championship. The winner of
that game will play for the first
rural state title the following week
in Orlando.
Chipley (10-2) was vindicated
in the Holmes County's 34-14 win
Nov. 4 that secured for them the
District 3-1A championship.
The Tigers put the finishing
touches on their dominance with a
19-play, 62-yard drive that melted
9:19 of the third quarter. Josh
Myers' 1-yard plunge gave Chipley
a 20-0 lead.
"You like to think 'boy, if we
can drive the quarter and put that
sucker in,' Chipley coach Rob
Armstrong said. "Then we looked
up at the clock and that put us in
good position."
Holmes County (10-2)
responded on its next possession,
capped by a 25-yard scoring pass
from Ethan Russ to Ty Russ near
the end of the third quarter to
make the score 20-6.
Chipley was forced to punt
on its ensuing series. However, a
chop-blockpenaltypushed Holmes
County back to its 9-yard line and
James Voorhees intercepted
Ethan Russ at the 36.
Six plays later, Myers sealed
the Blue Devils' fate with another
1-yard dive.
"We learned from the first
meeting," Armstrong said. "We
had a good plan on both sides of
the ball, but if the players don't
execute it doesn't matter."
There was hardly an empty seat
at Memorial Field and most times
the loudest side was Chipley's.
The Tigers ruled the first half with
ball control and a defense that
forced two turnovers and stopped
Holmes County on a fourth-down

"The men and women of the Walton
County Sheriff's Office applaud Captain
Brian Schultz, Lieutenant Donnie Clark
and Deputy Johnny Whitaker for their
dedication in catching the suspects,"
said Sheriff Michael A. Adkinson, Jr.
"Our streets are safer now that we have
the fugitives in custody."
WCSO captured the fugitives after
a citizen reported the culprits fleeing a
maximum security facility.
Following an extensive search and
heated argument, deputies successfully
captured the fugitives and transported
them to the WCSO where they were
detained for questioning. -

but what you are also seeing
is a graduate of AMIkids West
Florida a local boy done
good. One thing he learned
besides respect for others and
hard work paying off is that
you never stop developing
yourself. He plans on going
back to college and moving up
into federal service as a U.S.
Marshal or similar service.
We have a career
development component
that helps kids explore their
talents and aptitudes to see
what career fields would work
best for them. We do some
vocational training on site
in the areas of culinary arts
and data cable installation,
but the most helpful thing we
believe that we do is to get
the boys to see things from
a new perspective one in
which hard work and drive
is rewarded with opportunity
and success.

A look at a champion

By Cathrine Lamb
Editorial Assistant

The season is over, a
new champion has been
named, and here we are
already chomping at the
bit for the 2012 season.
Since there are no more
races until February, I am
going to be writing about a
different driver each week
until then. I will start with
Tony Stewart this week
and go to the No. 12 spot
of Kyle Busch, unless I get
suggestions from you. If you
have a favorite driver that
wasn't in the Chase in the
2011 season, let me know
and I will work them into a
story before I move on to
the next Chase contender.
Next week, there will not be
a driver story.
Tony Stewart was
born on May 20, 1971, in
Columbus Ind. He has two
homes, one in Columbus,
Ind., and one in Mooresville,
N.C. He is not married and
has no children.
Stewart started his
racing career at an early
age in 1978, racing Go-
Karts at a Westport,
Ind., track Tony won his

first championship at
age 8 in a 4-cycle Junior
Class. Stewart is the first
and only driver to win
Championships in Stock
Cars, Indy Cars, and Open-
Wheel Midget. He won his
Indy Championship in 1997.
Stewart made his debut
in NASCAR in 1999 after
racing in the Indy Series.
He has won three NASCAR
Championship Titles, his
first in 2002, the second in
2005 and the third one this
year. Stewart is co-owner of
Stewart-Hess Racing, based
out of N.C. Stewart is the
only driver-owner to win the
title since Ricky Rudd won
in 1998. Stewart drives the
No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1,
Chevy. There are two cars
in the Sprint Cup Series
owned by Stewart-Hess
Racing; they are the No.
39 of Ryan Newman and
Stewart's No. 14.

A God given debt free Christmas

"Imagine that this
Christmas you pay for
all of your gifts and other
holiday expenses
with a credit card.
Now imagine that
you have spent
to the maximum
limit of that card
so that you cannot
charge another
item. Then one day, FR(
the bill comes in H
the mail telling you Ti
how much you owe
and what your minimum
payment must be. There is
only one problem; you do
not have the money so you
cannot pay the bill. What do
you suppose would happen
next? Letters and phone
calls would flood into your
house demanding payment,
but you have no money. The
credit card is cancelled and

your credit report reflects
your non-payment status.
But none of that really


m Hall

matters, because
you do not have
the money with
which to pay. You
made the charges
and you enjoyed
the purchases, but
now you cannot
settle your debt.
"Now suppose
you receive a
letter from the

credit card company telling
you that someone else has
paid your debt in full? The
charges were not theirs,
but they paid the price for
"The debt was not in
their name, but they took
it upon themselves. You
do not have to pay them,
and in fact, you cannot

pay them back. All they
wanted to do was make life
better for you by taking that
burden of debt away. What
a wonderful gift and what
a generous gesture that
would be.
"That is exactly what
happened when Christ
came into our world. We
had built up a mountain of
sin and debt. Every day the
interest accrued making
the debt even bigger. The
debt consisted of promises
we made to God but did not
"The debt consisted
of deeds of service we
should have done but
never got around to. The
debt consisted of immoral
actions and unjust actions.
The debt consisted of our
prejudices, our jealousies,
our greed and our

"But rather than
continuing to hold that
debt over our heads, God
placed all of that sin on
the shoulders of one man,
Jesus Christ. God agreed
that by the death of that
one man all of our sins
would be forgiven if we
would only put our faith
in Him and agree to live
in accordance with His
teachings and example."
The words you just
read came from a sermon
preached by Marvin
McMickle and printed in
the November-December
2004 issue of "Preaching."
When I read it, it caught
my attention, so I felt I
must pass it on to you.
I hope that it has also
grabbed your attention and
sparked awareness that

the monetary debt we so
often allow ourselves to get
burdened under, does not
come close to the real debt
that we owe to God. The
beautiful thing about God
is, though the debt we owe
is owed to Him, He has paid
the debt in full.
"God gave His son
Jesus Christ to come to this
earth and take on a body
just like ours and, through
that body, He would
endure greater pain and
temptation than we could
even imagine, yet He would
not sin. Then, after 33 years
of withstanding Satan's
attack, He would take our
sins onto Him, to Calvary's
cross, that we might be
able to receive eternal life.
"He now sits at the right
hand of the Father, saying
"I paid that debt off."

Merry Christmas
everyone, and thank you,
Christ, for paying my debt
in full, for it was a debt I
could have never paid.
(Please be advised that
my articles are purposely
meant to be challenging
and at times, controversial.
They should no way reflect
negatively on the paper in
which you read it)

Worldwide, countless millions go hungry every day, and
yet there is seemingly an abundance of food. It might
seem odd to most Americans, for whom there is food in
abundance and a "dollar menu" on almost every corner,
that there are so many hungry people. Part of the problem
is in how the food and the money are
distributed. Over a billion people on
this planet (roughly one-sixth of the
world's population) subsist on less
than a dollar a day, and roughly 40%
lives on less than two dollars a day,
according to the United Nations. So,
even if they had access to the dollar
menu, it wouldn't do them much
good. It is easy enough in the ,..,ili .
developed countries of the world to
feed ourselves; indeed, many of us suffer from the effects
of having too much food. According to the CDC, two-
thirds of Americans are overweight. But, in the developing
world, food is scarce and poorly distributed. And although
it is probably too simplistic of an approach, it would go a
long way towards ameliorating poverty and hunger if the
two-thirds of us who are overweight would just eat less
and use the money saved to help alleviate hunger in the
developing nations. In a more practical way, we should
study and reflect on the problems of hunger and malnutri-
tion throughout the world, and then do something concrete
to help feed the hungry.
Then they also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see thee
hungry or thirsty or a strangeror naked or sick or in
prison, and did not minister thee?' Then he will answer
them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the
least of these, you did it not to me.'

Stars," would like to formally thank
all sponsors of this year's events.

accomplished this year would
not have been possible without
the help and consideration from
all of those involved," said Baker,
manager for Bridge. "First, we
would like to thank Tabernacle
of Praise of Chipley, our home
church, for allowing the use of their


property in holding the events each
time, and for the support from all
the members. Also involved in the
backing of the series was Nancy

people at Javiers Mexican Grill.

giving. Walmart also donated, as

OOWhy I love the month of DecemberOO OOO *OO OOO0
Why I love the month of December

By Rev. James L. Snyder

It was a wise person
who divided the year into
12 months. I really do not
know who came up with this
idea but let me go on record
in saying that it was a good
one. Each month seems to
have its own peculiar value.
Some months are better
than others.
For example, I am not a
member of January's fan
club. I am not sure if it is the
longest month of the year
but at times, it sure seems
to be. I mean, after all of the
excitement typically leading
up to the month of January,
is it any wonder it seems to
be such a dull month.
I could say many things
about some of the other
months of the year but
I really have to say that
my favorite month of the
year has to be December.
Maybe this goes back to
when I was a youngster
and looked forward to the
Christmas holiday. I am not
sure because the Christmas
holiday does not hold that
much of a fascination for
me. I think it began to wane
when I had to foot the bill for
all of the Christmas activity.
I do not love December
because of the shopping.
Right after Thanksgiving
the shopping frenzy begins
and this year several people
lost their lives. Is it crazy
to go out shopping like this
when everybody else is out
there with the fierce intent

of buying something and
you had better not get in his
or her way? On the other
hand, do all the crazy people
go shopping?
Well, I am one crazy
person that does not go
out and join the rest. I just
do not like shopping. The
month of December is one
of the high shopping months
of the year. It did not get the
reputation because of my
shopping activity.
This past week the
Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage asked me if
I wanted to join her in a
shopping spree. Without
thinking, which is my
normal modus operandi, I
said, "I'd rather be punched
in the nose."
When I came to, I
pondered the fact that my
wife is so literal when I am
trying to be metaphorical.
My nose is doing nicely,
thank you.
Therefore, I do not like
shopping. The month of
December is more than
extravagant shopping with
crazy people.
One of my favorite songs
of the season is, "Tis the
season to be jolly." I like
jolly. During the Christmas
season, everybody enjoys
seeing jolly people. I like to
exploit the jolliness of my
nature. I may not be Santa,
but I sure could pass as his
twin brother. Do not think I
have not exploited that part
of my character.

During the holiday
season in the month of
December, nobody bothers
about your weight. In fact,
everybody seems to enjoy
seeing the jolly old man
who is slightly overweight.
I cannot tell you how
many times when out in
public during the month
of December the people
come up to me and said,
"Here's my list. Don't forget
me." At first, I did not quite
understand what they were
doing. Now as they place
that sacred list in my hand
I look at them and say, "Ho,
ho, ho." Everybody seems
to enjoy that.
Of course, it can go too
far. One time after my Santa
impression, I happened
to sit down and before
long, there was a line of
youngsters wanting to sit on
my lap. I have since retired
my Santa impression,
especially when in public.
What I like about
December is that nobody,
and when I say nobody I
am referencing my wife,
worries about diets. All year
long, my wife is faithful in
reminding me, "That's not
on your diet. Put it down." I
would say it is like a broken
record but nobody knows
what a record is anymore
let alone a broken one.
During the holiday in
December she is too busy
baking pies and cookies
for relatives and friends
to think about my diet.
Perchance somebody in the

course of a conversation
brings up the subject
of diets; the month of
December is a great ready-
made excuse for me.
"I start my diet," I say
with the utmost confidence
to anybody inquiring, "next
It is amazing to me
that "next month" is never
December. And so, during
the month of December
I only look forward to my
diet. It would be wrong,
absolutely wrong, to begin
a diet in December. If a
person would do that, what
do they do for a New Year's
December is a time to
relax and just enjoy the
season. By enjoying the
season, I am thinking of
those delicious cookies
baking in the oven, in the
kitchen, in my presence.
It would be a shame not to
taste one. After all, what if
they were no good? What if
this batch of cookies, baking
in the oven right now,
turned out to be bad? It is
my patriotic duty to ensure
that those Christmas
cookies are delicious.
December is a very
sacred purpose. Solomon,
the wisest man who ever
lived, said, "To every thing
there is a season, and a time
to every purpose under the
heaven" (Ecclesiastes 3:1
My purpose is to
exploit the entire month of
