This certainly has become the case for the HodgeÂs family, who now faces the battle of medical bills due to a trau-matic experience, which has changed their lives forever. While at the Jr. Rodeo on Oct. 12, Josh was seriously injured when he was kicked in the face by a horse duinrg the festivities. He had trau-matic injuries due to the accident requiring surgery, with more surgeries in the required in the future. Hodges came home on Octo-ber 23 with his jaw wired shut and a tracheostomy. Laslie Cauley, a friend of the hodge family , called Hodge, Âtrue American cowboy.ÂŽ ÂJosh works countless hours horseback riding with his dogs catching and pen-ning cows,ÂŽ she said. ÂWhen he is not horseback, he is busy farming.ÂŽAccording to Cauley, Hodge and his wife, Brandi, are also youth pastors at a local church. ÂThey have always been wonderful Christian mentors to young adults in our community,ÂŽ Cauley said. ÂHe is more than willing to help anyone at anytime. He can preach anytime and anywhere,and for hours. He also preaches Cowboy Church at Jr. Rodeos.ÂŽThe Hodges have three children, Kaden, Addison, and Brayden. Cauley said because of the injuries, Hodge and his wife, who both have their own busi-nesses are unable to work at this time and the community wanted to do what they could to help them. Cauley said they decided that in efforts to help him and his family thru this difficult season, they would hold a benefit fish fry and donate all the proceeds to his family to cover expenses for medical costs and other needs. The benefit fish fry will take place on November 16 at Bethlehem High School, 2767 Highway 160, Bonifay, FL, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. A Cake Auction will also take place at noon. Cauley is urging everyone in the community to come out and support this noble cause. For more information please contact the Washington County News and Holmes County Times Advertiser editor. Community bands together to hold bene t sh fry for Josh HodgeSpecial to Washington County News and Holmes County Times AdvertiserWASHINGTON AND HOLMES COUNTYIn the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit, mediators have been saving the courts time and money by helping people achieve mutual agreements in their cases for more than 20 years. Carol Dunaway, Director of Mediation Programs for the 14th Judicial Circuit, said the program started in Bay County over 20 years ago. ÂWhat was once a small program in Bay County serving just a few judges has expanded greatly over the years, serving multiple judges throughout the circuit,ÂŽ Dun-away said.In the family and dependency divisions, mediators are both staff and contract mediators. All have gone through 40 hours of specialized training, mentored under a certified mediator, and eventually become cer-tified by the Florida Supreme Court. In our county court divi-sion, mediators are both staff and volunteers. You read that right; volunteers! For over 20 years the courts have relied on trained volunteers to mediate the lionÂs share of county cases in the Four-teenth Judicial Circuit.County volunteers are provided 20 hours of basic mediation training and then paired with more senior mediators to learn how to actively listen, facilitate conversations, resolve dis-putes, and how to accurately complete paperwork. They donÂt make decisions for the parties, they help parties find middle ground while maintaining control over the process. The overall success rate is quite high, in the range of 65 75% in the county division. With that kind of success rate, the program has become an invaluable part of the court system. Washington County Judge Colby Peel states ÂSince we started the program here in 2011, mediation has allowed hundreds of Washington County residents to resolve their cases on their own terms in an inexpensive and effi-cient manner.ÂŽDunaway said mediators find the process very rewarding. ÂI have been a mediator for over 12 years and mediated thousands of cases, each one unique and different from the next, but one thing is consistent, people just want to be heard and want to have an opportunity to tell their version of their story,ÂŽ Dun-away said. ÂPeacemaking and problem solving is one of the many rewards a mediator enjoys."The Fourteenth Circuit is currently pre-qualifying applicants to attend the free Supreme Court approved training in Panama City from January 2831, 2020 from 8:30 am3:30 pm each day.

When she began teaching in 2008, she said she did it for one simple reason Âthe love of the children.ÂŽ Waymire has taught kindergarten, K4 VE class, and currently teaches Pre-K ESE. ÂIÂve always liked smaller children,ÂŽ Waymire said. Waymire said she chose to go to Pre-K ESE because she felt like she could be a strong help to the stu-dents development. ÂI like to take them from where I get them which is a lot of times not doing anything and get them ready for Kindergarten.ÂŽ she said. ÂSo there are reading they are writing, and they are ready to go.ÂŽ Waymire said she does alot of things in her class-room to make it unique and standout from other classrooms. Some of the things she said she does to help the students in the class who do not have not development speech skills, is to develop their communication skills through activities taught in class and practice drills she develops, including a communication board system. ÂItÂs a lot of hands on things.ÂŽ she said. Waymire, who was recently nominated as the September Amazing Teacher for Holmes County, said she was shocked to receive the nomination. She said for her the most rewarding thing about being a teacher was not receiving this recognition but seeing her students be successful. ÂAnd the hugs and the kisses I get everyday,ÂŽ Waymire said. For anyone interested in becoming a teacher, Waymire has some words of advice she said she wants to share. ÂIts definitely something that you have to have a heart for,ÂŽ she said. ÂItÂs not an easy task, ItÂs not something you do for the money. These children can be difficult. ESE children in general can be difficult bu there is a lot of love there.ÂŽ When Waymire was nominated, she was said to have a heart for children and always checked on students who were sick. Waymire said she thanked the community for allowing her the opportunity to teach their children.

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. BareÂ“ eld EDITOR K. William Boyer PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett From the better-late-than-never file: Flo ridaÂs premier agency that researches programs, policies and spending is examining how the stateÂs Office of Early Learning allocates more than $600 million in funds intended to help make low-income children ready for school. The Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability is an arm of the Florida Legislature. OPPAGA, as itÂs known, has a solid reputation for credibly evaluating everything from the complex to the inexplicable. Funding to offset the high costs of child care and pre-kindergarten learning for children from low-income families is a vital function of the state government Â„ ideally with localgovernment and private-sector support. There are two chief problems, however: Florida received additional federal contributions last year, but overall funding falls far short of the need. The longtime formula, such as it is, for appropriating the funds is, according to the consensus, outdated and unexplained. The latter problem has been known for years, but efforts to update and explain the distributions have stalled because previous attempts to reallocate the same amount of funding meant some early-learning coalitions in Florida would receive less money while others would get more. OPPAGAÂs task is to unravel the red tape, determine how funds are disbursed and recommend to the Legislature ideas for creating a new, equitable f ormula. The officeÂs conclusions wonÂt come a moment too soon. The Legislature, for its part, could and should do two things: Increase total funding; create effective partnerships between the state and communities to evaluate and improve child-care and pre-K programs. Some programs do splendid work. Others are ineffective, due to various factors: the fact that many children from low-income households are ill-prepared to learn; a lack of adequately trained staff; a shortage of resources. Recognition of the importance of early learning has increased exponentially in recent years. FloridaÂs commitment to adequate funding and high-quality programming is overdue. Saluting an unknown veteran Much has been written and stated about the amazing, touching scene this week when thousands of people attended the funeral for a veteran they didnÂt even know. Thanks to advance coverage by media organizations, Pvt. Edward Pearson Â„ who had no known family members upon his death Â„ was given a funeral fit for a general, as a Herald-Tribune headline aptly stated. The ceremony was conducted at the Sarasota National CemeteryÂs Patriot Plaza, which was conceived and funded by Sarasota-based The Patterson Foundation. The plaza is more than a slab of concrete that holds folding chairs. It has a beautifully designed pavilion, lovely art and other amenities. Most important, it is a public s pace that enables people to honor veterans and contemplate their sacrifices. Sometimes funerals at the cemetery are attended by a lone relative in search of individual solace; at others, like the Pearson ceremony, it is place where community is demonstrated at its finest. A longer version of this editorial first appeared in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, a News Herald sister paper with GateHouse Media.OUR VIEWBoost state funding for early learning On Tuesday of this week I FINALLY signed paperwork on my home in the community. As I reflected on the process of my transitioning from a reporter of the Santa Rosa Press Gazette to the editor of Washington County News and Holmes County Times Advertiser one thing that struck me as charmingly amazing was that I would have a physical presence in both communities seven days a week no matter how you looked at it. You see with my company if you have more than one location that you report to, or in my case lead a portion of, it is called your Âhome office.ÂŽ In my case that is in Washington County. My Âphysical homeÂŽ that I have purchased is in Holmes County. So I will have the rare privilege of truly getting to be physically part both of these two wonderfully unique and culturally rich counties; and I am truly very much looking forward to it. Though many have already read by now, I have had the rare opportunity to work with several communities in Florida and Alabama with my church over the past several years but until coming to be your editor I never had the opportunity to see Washington and Holmes. I have heard from members in the community that, Â Washington and Holmes are two of the poorest counties in Florida.ÂŽ When I first heard that I had to stop and think for a moment the way they were thinking about being rich versus poor. Were they strictly thinking about the money aspect? Or were they thinking about the community values? Were they thinking about the community spirit? Were they basing things on simple face values? Here is a question to ponder for a moment? What really makes a ÂwealthyÂŽ community? Is it really money alone? It has been said that community wealth is created as people from varied backgrounds (i.e. corporate and nonprofit leaders, nonprofit supporters and volunteers, clients or constituents of nonprofits, etc.) share their strengths to advance worthy causes that lift up our communities. So strengths, doesnÂt just mean finances. could mean time, talents, and so much more. Part of being a wealthy community is building that community, no community instantly was ÂwealthyÂŽ from the word go. Alan Watts once said, ÂMoney is a way of measuring wealth but is not wealth in itself. A chest of gold coins or a fat wallet of bills is of no use whatsoever to a wrecked sailor alone on a raft.ÂŽ Have you ever heard that saying, ÂTrue wealth isn't measured in money; it's measured in moments, like time with loved ones and giving back to our community?ÂŽ Something to think about.

He can be reached at kboyer@chipleypaper or at 850-638-0212 ext. 4006A ÂWealthyÂ Community: What does that really mean?By James H. CagleWhoÂs Responsible for the State of the Church? The Bible says, ÂRemember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of its place, except thou repentÂŽ (Rev.2: 5). There are seven churches (church at Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea) that are addressed in Revelation chapters two and three. Each one is an autonomous church, having the right and power of self-government. There are no two churches exactly alike. Each one has its own characteristics and is in a state thatÂs different from all the others. All but two (Smyrna, Philadelphia) are told to repent of the state theyÂre in and return to God and do the works that are pleasing to Him. All of these churches actually existed in Asia Minor during the time of JohnÂs writing. These churches and the state theyÂre in are often used to represent a time in church history where the church universal was in a similar state. ItÂs clear through the message given to each church that God held the congregation of each church responsible for the state their church was in. ThatÂs because the state that each church was in was the consequence of the choices the congregation made. ItÂs very obvious that Satan has made his way into some of the churches by influencing the choices of its members. ThereÂs false doctrine, worship of idols, spiritual deadness, and sickening lukewarmness. But Satan is not blamed for the sinful state of the churches. The people are blamed for the sinful fallen state of the church. They made the choices that allowed unbiblical things to be done and taught in the church. To change the state of the church and to avoid GodÂs judgment the people are told to judge themselves and repent of their sins and start doing what pleases God. The churchÂs standing (justified, redeemed, forgiven, pardoned, sanctified) will never change, but the state (holy, separated, unholy, worldly) of the church changes at the will of its members. Jesus bought and built the church but gave the responsibility of dealing with sin and error and keeping the church pure to its members (1 Cor. 5, 6:1-5). Even today this principle applies. Each and every local church is in the state that the members of that church want it to be in. There may be a few who are grieved over the sinful worldly state of the church and are working to bring it back to following the Bible (KJV), but they are the minority. The point being made is that God gives the pastor, deacons, and lay persons the responsiblity and will eventually hold them accountable for the state their church is in. ItÂs been said, Âour compromises today will be our childrenÂs convictions tomorrow.ÂŽ And so it is that the compromises this generation of Christians make about the church will be the convictions of the next generation of Christians. And this explains the declining state of the church. Each generation has been weakening its stance on separation and holiness. Each generation knows less and less of the core values or doctrines of the church and therefore does not understand the churchÂs biblical mission or ministry. Each church member must share the blame for the state the church is in. And each member must do their share to bring the church back to biblical soundness by repentance and returning to the God of the Bible (KJV).Whose Responsible for the State of the Church?

Tallahassee Demo-cratic Sen. Bill Montford on Thursday refiled legislation for the 2020 session to allocate $50 million a year from the Land Acquisition Trust Fund for projects dedicated to conservation and land management activities in Bay, Cal-houn, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Leon, Lib-erty, Okaloosa, Wakulla, Walton, and Washington counties. While lawmakers advanced more than $220 million toward relief efforts related to Michael during the 2019 legislative session earlier this year, a similar trust fund measure proposed by Montford and Rep. Brad Drake, R-Eucheeanna, failed to advance.The trust fund was established by Florida voters in 2014 to steer one-third of the revenue from an existing real estate documentary stamp tax Â„ known as doc stamps Â„ for land and water preserva-tion. The tax was projected to generate $2.76 billion in the current fiscal year, of which more than $906 million would go into the trust fund.In previous legislative sessions, lawmakers earmarked annual spending of about $200 million for Everglades protection; $64 million for a reservoir project in the Everglades Agricultural Area; $50 mil-lion for the stateÂs natural springs; and $5 million for Lake Apopka.A proposal by Sen. Linda Stewart, D-Orlando, to dedicate $100 million a year from the trust fund to the Florida Forever land preservation program goes before the Senate Environment and Natu-ral Resources Committee Monday afternoon.Senator seeks land preservation money for Michael-ravaged counties By Mike SchneiderThe Associated PressORLANDO Â„ In the first few mo nths after the new federal tax law went into effect, Florida saw jumps in new residents moving from Connecticut and Massachusetts.There were smaller year-over-year increases in new Florida residents from New Jersey and Pennsylvania, but no jump from New York Â„ traditionally the biggest source of new Floridians.New figures released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau offer a glimpse of the impact of the 2017 tax law on U.S. migration patterns from high-tax northeastern states to Florida, which doesn't have a state income tax and has com-paratively low property taxes.Whether the tax law got people to move to Florida is still open to debate. The figures track migration from July 2017 to July 2018 and capture the first few months after the tax law took effect on Jan. 1, 2018. Florida's most famous new resident isn't included because President Donald Trump, an ex-New Yorker, only recently made Palm Beach his permanent home.The federal tax law, which has become a political football between Republican and Democratic politi-cians, put a $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions and insti-tuted a $750,000 limit on the amount of mortgage debt that could be writ-ten off.New Jersey, New York and Connecticut have among the nation's highest state and local property tax collections per capita, according to The Tax Foundation, a tax policy research group.But the year-to-year jump in New Englanders may have more to do with baby boomers retiring than a change in the tax law, said Susan Strate, senior manager of Population Estimates Program at the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute.The biggest age groups represented by the New England migrants were just past the retirement age of 65 or were approaching retirement age. The biggest age group represented among the former New Yorkers was early 30s, according to Strate's analysis."Over these years, we can expect to see increasing migration from those states that send more retirees, versus young people, to Florida, including many of the typical 'snowbird' New England states," Strate said.Last year, 63,000 New Yorkers became Florida residents, unchanged from the previous year. More than 18,000 new Floridians came from Connecticut, compared to almost 11,250 in 2017. More than 20,300 residents from Massa-chusetts came to Florida last year, compared to more than 18,200 former Bay Staters in 2017.University of Florida demographer Stefan Rayer said numbers may fluctuate year-to-year, but overall the source of new Florida residents remains unchanged. He noted a significant jump in Puerto Ricans moving to Florida after Hurri-cane Maria in 2017, from under 29,000 islanders in 2017 to nearly 45,000 islanders in 2018.The tax law has been a political hot button for Florida politicians and their counterparts in northeastern states."America is a market-place where states are competing with each other, and New York is losing," Republican U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, Florida's previous governor, wrote in March in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal .Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo punched back in another Journal op-ed.The goal of the tax law, pushed by President Donald Trump and passed by Republican majorities in Congress, was "to weaponize the federal tax system against predominantly Democratic states," he said.After tax law, Florida sees moversA for sale sign is posted in front of a home in Miami. In this Â“ rst few months after the new federal tax law went into effect, Florida saw jumps in new residents moving from Connecticut and Massachusetts. [FILE PHOTO/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS]

The small boutique, run by Crissy Santiago, offers a wide variety of items ranging from clothes to home decor for members of the community. ÂI have a little something for everyone,ÂŽ Santiago said, ÂI try to give something that is unique for everybody and I wanted to bring something different to the community.ÂŽ But when Santiago says unique, she doesnÂt only mean her hand made pocket knives, tumblers, and custom made jewelry that she and seven other co-workers create, she means the unique community outreach things she is in the process of doing. ÂEvery month, once a month on a Monday I do a painting class here at the boutique for community,ÂŽ she said. ÂI also am trying to do things for the kids.ÂŽ Santiago, who came from a bigger city, said she wants to give the community things to do and a place where they can by unique merchandise all the time and not have to wait for festivals or drive long dis-tances to shop for the things they want. According to her website, Âat Faith's Treasures we strive to give you a unique shopping experience by pro-viding locally made products in addition to other collec-tions we offer.ÂŽFaithÂs Treasures is open TuesdayÂs, ThursdayÂs and FridayÂs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., WednesdayÂs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and SaturdayÂs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit www.faithstreasures.com, or go to their Facebook page, ÂFaithÂs Treasures Gifts.ÂŽ New treasure nds a home in Bonifay By Hazel Wells TisonVeterans Day is rapidly approaching and I am planning to rerun the series of articles which I ran twelve years ago based on the diary of Harry Williams. He and his wife have passed away since I wrote about his experience of being in a German War Prison. The telling of the WWII experiences of Harry WilliamsÂ stellar military career and his nearly fourteen month experience as a German Prisoner of War is worthy of a better writer than I am, but I am honored to attempt to five you some of the record of one of AmericaÂs bravest. The unimaginable hardships endured starting in April 1944 are partially contained in a diary which was taken by the Germans and recreated as best Williams could do. The love and devotion of his wife Ann V. Creel Williams is an inspiring story worthy of its own reporting. Harry grew up in Washington and Holmes Counties, the son of Clifford and Annie Lee Brock Williams, both members of pioneer families. Clifford is a member of the famed Williams clan who comprise the Williams Reunion celebrated at Galilee Church for well over 100 years. Annie Lee is a descendant of the late Tom and Jane Yates Brock who have also celebrated their heritage in Washing and Holmes County for over 100 years. Harry attended school in Goeth north of Court Martial Ranch, Brackin and Union Hill located south of Bonifay in Washington County, Vernon High School and Holmes County High School where he graduated in 1942 at age 17. When he turned 18, his dad carried him to Dothan where he enlisted. Basic training was in New Jerse; then Scott Field, Illinois for Radio/Electronics School and then to Ft. Myers, FL for aerial Gunnery School. He was then assigned to the 344th Light Bomb Group at Drane Field in Lakeland. There he began flight training in B-26 Medium Bomber Aircraft, which had a good combat record in both European and Pacific Theaters of operations. He arrived at his overseas assignment in North Africa VIA The West Indies, Brazile Ascension Island and West Africa. His outfit moved to England and flew combat missions over occupied France, Belgium and Holland. On April 23, 1944 his aircraft was shot down by anti aircraft near Lille France. Due to their low-flying altitude with no oxygen on board, their parachuted barely had time to open and add to that, the holed shot in to them by enemy fire, WilliamsÂ landing was not a soft one. Holding the waist guns aside to assist team mates departing the plane also delayed WilliamsÂ jump. Thus, his left leg was shattered in his landing. Young enemy troops composed of Nazi Youth Demonstrated their ÂmanhoodÂŽ by severely beating helpless prisoners. HarryÂs wound separated him from his crew. After suffering four days with his injured leg, he was finally given medical attention. The leg was so severely damaged and the pain so intense, that amputation was planned. Ironically, and perhaps providentially, the attending doctor noticed WilliamsÂ dog tags and began asking him questions about doctors from this area. It turned out that the doctor had formerly practiced in Cottondale, Florida. (According to Bruce Christmas, is name was Crisco.) Harry knew all the Doctors he names. Instead of amputating the leg, they began to attempt to save it and were able to do so. Williams was not able to leave the hospital which was also a prison until June of 1944. As ludicrous as it sounds, the inmates were chained and handcuffed to their beds and locked behind double steel bared doors at night. His first confinement out of the hospital was at Dulag Luft; the Luft IV at Kiefheide, Poland. The American Prisoners were constantly moved by train, by foot and sometimes by boat. Whatever the mode, it was miserable. By train, seventy men would be packed in a small rail car where only half could sit. They had to rotate on command. Food and sanitary facilities were virtually non-existence. For those transported by boat, the conditions were even worse. Many did not survive.HAPPY CORNERHolmes County Chamber of Commerce cuts the ribbon on the FaithÂs Treasures in Bonifay. [CONTRIBUTED PHOTO] Sr. Chief Sergeant Harry William WWII Hero (Part 1)
** * B2 Wednesday, November 6, 2019 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Faye HarrisMost of us know several veterans...some who have gone to war, some who have stayed home. Few of us however, know less about the Âwar to end all warsÂ. (It didnÂt work out...it didnÂt live up to its name.) America is still sending our loved, young service people to other lands...to keep the war Âover thereÂ. WouldnÂt it be nice if we could begin celebrating Veterans Day as it deals only with those who have served our country at an earlier date...thereby abolishing war forever? However, looking at the Bible (a very early history book) we see as long ago as those earlier, bygone days, war has been a way of life. We, who go through the ordinary daily difficulties of life, need to realize how small our problems really are when compared to those men and women who put their actual bodies on OUR front line. My brother, Rodney Howard, was a dog handler in Viet Nam. He recounted to me that he never thought he could kill another human being...until he was awakened by the low growl of his dog... in the middle of the night. Slowly he opened his eyes to see a North Vietnamese soldier with a rifle pointed right at his head. ÂThen,ÂŽ he said, shaking his head in sadness, ÂItÂs kill or be killed.ÂŽ He couldnÂt replay scenes like that often. ÂIt would drive a guy nuts if they didnÂt concentrate on the end results of victory for our country...instead of killing a man who no more wanted to be there than I did,ÂŽ Rod would say. ThatÂs the job of a service person if they find thatÂs what is required for the job at hand. Also that is whatÂs called for as these young Americans lay their lives...or their limbs on the line for the freedom most of us take for granted. Henry Myers, an old WWII veteran once said, ÂWeÂre supposed to hate the enemy...until the armistice...then weÂre supposed to love them like a brother. It was only when I was in Germany and the civilians were liberated from the prisoner of war camps... that I realized how much entire countries suffer when war takes over. Or, when you enter a country that looks like a mass of tornados have hit it all at once, and thereÂs nothing left standing because of the bombs that have been dropped. ÂIt was then I realized why I was in this foreign country. But wouldnÂt it be great if someone, somewhere was smart enough to come up with a solution to war?ÂŽ At this time you could see Henry Myers chest swell with pride at being an American veteran. ÂBut until they do our countryÂs young people will just have to shoulder the load they signed up for when they enlisted or were drafted.ÂŽ To Henry and to Rodney, and to all the other veterans who have served you and me...we need to consider offering a resounding ÂTHANKS FOR SERVINGÂ... and not allow these to be empty words. Instead our chests should swell (as HenryÂs did when he thought of the Âprivilege it was to serve such a great countryÂŽ) with pride when we meet someone who has been in one of the armed services...or when we see our countryÂs flag pass by...or when we hear about Âthe land that I love. Stand beside her, and guide her, through the night with the light from above.ÂVeteranÂs Day [K. WILLIAM BOYER/WASHINGTON COUNTY NEWS] By Faye HarrisRepeating the title...IÂm a coward. I donÂt know if IÂd have the guts to sign up for a job that would take me to a foreign country whose language I didnÂt know...or not...let alone selecting a job that might cost my life. Life! Probably the most precious gift we could give anyone. The following three stories were told to me and I have passed them on many times before. They each deal with this most valuable thing...life (or a short reprieve before we cash in our chips/die). All three deal with WWII. The first happened on a day when fighting between the Americans, their allies, and the Germans was very intense. The fighting had been so unfortunate that most of the leading service members had been killed. Finally, however, the Americans and their allies were captured. During their march to a prisoner of war camp...a lowly young sergeant had been promoted to leader of the pack. Taking his job seriously, he whispered the order, ÂWhatever I do...the rest of you do. Got it? Pass it on.ÂŽ And the message was whispered from one end of the troops to the other. When the Germans finally got these captured soldiers to the camp, they told their prisoners to line up. Suddenly an older German officer appeared to take control. He said some things in German to a few of the guards... then issued an order to the Americans, ÂAnyone of Jewish descent, step forward!ÂŽ It was apparent these men were to be killed immediately. The young sergeant hesitated only a few seconds. Knowing the background of the men under his command, the young man looked at the soldiers around him, stepped forward and said, ÂWeÂre all Jews here.ÂŽ The other soldiers followed suit. It is said the German officer in charge yelled an obscenity, then stomped off leaving his underlings to find places for the prisoners in the barracks. (The gift of life...) The second story deals with the Americans and their allies in one trench and the Germans in another. Both sides were tired. The bullets were flying in the hope they would hit their target. Suddenly a young German crawled from his place in their trench and headed toward the Americans. He was going to the enemy because they werenÂt going away. THEN... he was hit! He let out a cry, ÂMom!ÂŽ then tried to turn around and rejoin his comrades in arms. The going was tough. He could barely move... dragging himself a bit, then resting he cried again, ÂMom!ÂŽ This was when an American soldier crawled from his own trench and went toward the injured man. The firing on both sides stopped. It was then the young American did something entirely unexpected. When he reached the German soldier, he pulled him up to his feet, put one of his arms around the manÂs waist...grabbed the GermanÂs arm and wrapped it around his own shoulder...and grabbing the opposing soldiers hand... together they continued the GermanÂs walk back to his own trench. It was then a high German soldier crawled out of the trench to receive his fallen comrade. But, before he did...he took a medal from his own uniform and penned it onto the AmericanÂs shirt. ÂYou deserve this more than I do,ÂŽ he told the enemy. It was only after both men were securely in their own trenches that the war picked up where it had left off...and the bullets began once more to seek their target. (Again, the gift of life...and it doesnÂt appear to have any one nationality attached to it.) The third story was a Christmas happening. The war was raging on... hand to hand combat and trench warfare was the name of the game. Battle worn soldiers from both sides were hoping for an advantage. THEN... because it was Christmas morning a strange thing happened. Soldiers on one side began to sing some of the old Christmas songs. The firing stopped... Soon the other side, the ÂenemyÂ side, recognized the songs...and joined in with the singing. Both sides in the war had called a halt...all on their own... to celebrate the season they both loved. When the songs were over the shooting began again and the war resumed... The beautiful old songs about Christmas...many of these came into being because of a man named Jesus. According to the Bible (a very early history book) this man was born just so He could give His life...so that ours would be saved. There again...is that ÂlifeÂ thing... Each of the men in these stories became veterans...who just kept soldiering on...doing their duty for the people of the country they loved... ThatÂs what one does when they take on a job in earnest...they work through the problems. ThatÂs what they were hired to do. And that, folks , is (merely) what the veterans of all nations have done...and why we at home should realize that it is a privilege of ours...to be able to salute...each of those who have gone to war for...ÂŽthe land of the free...and the home of the brave!ÂŽÂIÂm a CowardÂ IN HONOR OF VETERANÂS DAY For the latest news, visit us online at chipleypaper.com

ItÂs very dense like a fudge brownie, and the texture is definitely unlike a sponge cake. A word of caution: serve small slices; itÂs rich! Prepare the coulis first:For the fruit coulis: 1 lb. berries, plus extra for garnishingÂ½ cup superÂ“ ne sugar Juice of one lemon Put the berries in a pan with Â½ cup sugar and heat very gently, stirring with a wooden spoon from time to time. When the mixture comes to a simmer, cook gently for another 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender or a food processor and whiz to a purÃ©e. Strain the liquid through a cheesecloth-lined strainer into a bowl. Let the coulis cool, occasionally stirring to prevent a skin forming.

Generously butter a 9 Â½ -inch springform pan, then sprinkle the pan with a little sugar and tap out the excess. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the sugar; you are going to use it for the egg whites. Place the chocolate, butter and remaining sugar in a heavy saucepan and cook over low heat until the chocolate and butter have melted, and the sugar has dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the vanilla extract and let the mixture cool slightly. Beat the egg yolks into the chocolate mixture, beating each in well, and then stir in the Â” our. In a clean, grease-free bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites slowly until they are frothy. Increase the speed, add the salt and continue beating until soft peaks form. Sprinkle over the reserved sugar and beat until the whites are stiff and glossy. Beat one-third of the whites into the chocolate mixture, then fold in the remaining whites. Carefully pour the mixture into the pan and tap the pan gently to release any air bubbles. Bake the cake for about 35 to 45 minutes until well risen and the top springs back when touched lightly with a Â“ ngertip. Transfer the cake to a wire rack, remove the side of the pan and let cool completely. Remove the pan base and transfer to a serving plate.

Patients who took their hyperten-sion medication at night had better controlled blood pres-sure and a significantly lower risk of death or illness due to heart problems.According to CNN, although there is no study that suggests taking blood pressure medication in the morning is better, many doctors still recommend ingesting it upon waking. This is possibly because patients find it easier to remember to take their medications in the morning. "I believe you will see doc-tors come around to this quickly," said Dr. Barbara Roberts, a cardiologist and associate clinical professor of medicine at Brown. "Hyper-tension is such a strong risk factor for cardiovascular disease, far greater than cho-lesterol and everything that will allow us to treat this more effectively is important."The study involved 19,084 patients enrolled in the Hygia Project, a network of care centers in Spain.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, after adjusting for age, race/ethnicity and family income, past-month cannabis use, daily/near can-nabis use, and number of days of cannabis use all increased among pregnant women. The FDA has released a statement strongly advising pregnant women not to use cannabis in any form because it may cause premature birth. More Content NowHEALTHY LIVINGSoda addictionRemoving sodas from your diet is a quick way to improve your health. Cutting soft drinks, however, can be challenging. CNN describes the factors that make sodas addictive. Sodas have a high sugar content and that sweet-ness stimulates the same reward centers in the brain as drugs. Diet sodas contain-ing artificial sweeteners are also addictive. Taste receptors sense the sweetness, but the real sugar the brain was expecting never comes. This results in soda drinkers opening another can. Similar to sugar, caffeine also activates reward pathways of the brain. Those who drink sodas regularly might become dependant on them to stay attentive. Carbonation also plays a role. Not only is the fizz itself pleasurable, it also makes the drink slightly acidic which intensifies the feelings of reward. Rituals associated with sodas, according to CNN, are another major factor. Hearing the pop of the can and the fizz of carbon-ation can be enough to make people crave soft drinks. More Content Now NUMBER TO KNOW90: According to the Centers for Disease Control, about 90% of Americans eat more sodium than is recommended for a healthy diet.More Content NowHEALTH WATCHMore Content NowHouston chef Chris Shepherd grew up learning about food Âin a vacuum.ÂŽ Growing up in a white, middle-class family in Nebraska and Oklahoma, he ate meatloaf, mashed potatoes and zucchini bread until he went to culinary school, where he learned French cooking techniques that, since Auguste Escoffier, had become the standard for high-end cuisine. But the world has changed, and so has Shepherd. It didnÂt take a long time living in Houston for him to realize that thereÂs a whole world beyond the fine dining kitchens in which heÂd trained. As the most diverse city in the country by many measures, Houston provided a secondary education in food that transformed ShepherdÂs understanding of both everyday ingredients, including rice, corn, soy sauce and chile peppers, and the complex issues that food also touches, such as labor, class and race. To unpack what heÂs been learning on this culinary journey, Shepherd teamed up with co-author Kaitlyn Goalen to write ÂCook Like a Local: Flavors That Can Change How You Cook and See the World: A CookbookÂŽ (Clarkson Potter, $35). The book uses six core pantry staples to take readers beyond the traditional lessons taught in fancy culinary schools to get at the heart of what it means to make good food. He kicks off the cookbook with an entire chapter on fish sauce, an ingredient now widely adopted throughout his beloved Houston, far beyond the Vietnamese restaurants that might have introduced it. Grilled HerbMarinated Chicken ThereÂs nothing new about marinating chicken with herbs and citrus, but the addition of fish sauce takes this tried-and-true technique to something seriously next level. The fish sauce works its way deep into the chicken to impart its funky, salty flavor all the way through. This recipe also shows off the special relationship between fish sauce and sugar (in this case, honey) and how they work together to create caramelization without tipping the scales of flavor into something too sweet. If youÂd rather not mess with a whole chicken, feel free to swap in chicken thighs or breasts. Serve this with papaya salad. Chris Shepherd1 (3-pound) chicken or 3 pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken parts 1 cup Â“ sh sauceÂ¼ cup honey Juice of 4 limes, plus 2 limes cut into wedges, for garnish 10 garlic cloves 2 bunches scallions (about 12), trimmed 1 bunch cilantro, plus more, chopped, for garnish 2 jalapeÃ±osÂ¼ cup vegetable oil Set the chicken breast-side down on a cutting board. Using kitchen shears or a cleaver, go up from the cavity of the chicken toward the neck, cutting on either side of the backbone to separate it from the ribs (save the backbone for your next batch of chicken stock). Turn the chicken over, place both your hands in the center of the breast plate, and press down hard until you hear the breastbone snap; the chicken should be Â” attened at this point. Combine the Â“ sh sauce, honey, lime juice, garlic, scallions, cilantro, jalapeÃ±os and oil in a blender. Puree to a smooth consistency. Put the chicken in a large resealable plastic bag and pour in the sauce. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Prepare a medium-hot grill with a medium-low zone. If using coals, build the Â“ re off to one side of the grill, giving you direct and indirect heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade, letting any excess drip away. Place the chicken, skin-side down, on the hotter side of the grill and cook for 5 minutes, being careful not to let it burn as the sugars from the honey start to caramelize. Using tongs, Â” ip the chicken and move it to the cooler side; continue to cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees, 35 to 40 minutes (Â” ip it again about halfway through for even cooking). Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let it rest for 10 minutes. To carve the chicken, cut the wing portions from the breasts, cut the breasts into two pieces each, and separate the drumsticks and thighs. Top with cilantro and serve immediately with lime wedges.
