County seeks funds for new schools District hopes to build new elementary, middle school By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT BONIFAY — Superintendent of Holmes County Schools Eddie Dixon announced the district is in the process of finding funds to build new a new Bonifay Elementary

School and a new Bonifay Middle School during the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Chamber Breakfast on Thursday. “We’ve done all we can for those two schools, and now they are beyond what we could possibly do for them,” Dixon said. “My vision is to have kindergarten through fifth grade together again and that both schools will be in facilities that can withstand a hurricane five. Right now we are fighting hard for funding.” Chamber coordinator Julia

Bullington also announced a few bills passed recently in the Florida Legislature that affect Holmes County. “There are days set aside where the sales taxes are exempt on backto-school items,” Bullington said. “This year it was passed that the day will be held on Aug. 2 through Aug. 4 and now includes computers up to $750. This includes tablets, laptops and electronic readers.” She also said an insurance exemption was passed for agritourism. Agritourism is attracting visi-

tors to the farm experience and can include participating in farm activities, such as feeding the animals, visitors harvesting their own food, etc. Bullington said agritourism had taken a huge hit because the price of insuring farms for high levels of visitors is very expensive and deters many small farms from participating. “We’ve got a lot of agritourism destinations here in Holmes

PONCE de LEON — Ponce de Leon High School’s gymnasium was standing room only as friends, family, loved ones, fellow students and staff crowded in to celebrate Ponce de Leon High School’s graduating Class of 2013 on Monday. “True grit, that’s what this class has,” said Principal Buddy Brown. “Some times you faltered, some times you tripped but when it counted you made it.” Brown said a lot of the students’ successes came from concerned parents, grandparents and guardians. “To the class of 2013 I would like to take the time personally to congratulate each one of you on your personal accomplishments,” said Salutatorian Matthew David Hicks. “I’ve seen us all grow into the young men and women who will change the world in our own personal ways. I want to challenge you to set yourself high goals and apply yourself to achieving those goals because if you apply yourself you can obtain any goal you set.” He encouraged his fellow classmates to live a life of “honesty and integrity, because living by these two principles will a reward that will benefit your life greatly.” “Finally, ground your life in Jesus Christ,” said Hicks. “If you seek his will and guidance in your life, you will experience a life full of joy, love, hope and peace even in times of trouble and turmoil. “Even though it has come time for us to part, leading some of us a long way from home,” Hicks said. “Let us not leave sad, instead let us leave knowing we shared some awesome memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. Now, Class of 2013, let us go forth and impact the world.”

Seven, of the original ten members, came by “letter” from Bethel Primitive Baptist Church in Washington County, In addition to the three listed above, Shelby Barber, Buell Farrell, Rebecca Farrell and Margie Farrell were the other four. Nellie Jackson, came by letter from Cool Springs Primitive Baptist Church near Dublin, Georgia. A husband and wife team, Mr. and Mrs. O. G. Tidwill, presented letters from an unknown location, making the total of ten members. Once formally constituted, the church called Elder H. E. Harris, who also held membership at Bethel, as its first pastor. In the 60-year history, four other elders have served as pastor. They are Elder J. B. Pelham, Elder Lamon Farris, Elder Bobby Collins and the present pastor, Elder J. C. Stanaland. After meeting in the Millville Dad’s Club House and in a St. Andrew Union Hall for the few months prior to officially becoming a church, the congregation secured a lot at 2100 Michigan Avenue and immediately embarked on the mammoth task of erecting a suitable meeting house. At the recent celebration, I described our newly acquired building plot as a deserted area of deep rooted palmettos, scrub oak trees, extremely sandy soil and an area infested with an abundance of

mosquitoes and snakes. A host of willing nonmember volunteers, came forward to assist with the project. Such important functions of laying out the foundation, providing material and labor for building the roof and much of the plumbing and electrical work, were carried out by those qualified to do the job and willing to perform it without charge. In my presentation, I mentioned that I recalled that we all were upbeat and optimistic about the project and actually enjoyed the workers and seeing the project move so rapidly. On the lighter side, mention was made of those “sidewalk superintendents,” or maybe more tactfully stated, “interested bystanders” who were mostly neighbors in the area who stood at a distance admiring our efforts and occasionally offering some suggestions. The only name recalled was a gentlemen who told us he was Gen. Tharp, who lived just across the street and that he came to Bay County from his native Washington County. Later, I got to know Mr. Tharp better during my employment in the Bay County Courthouse. He was one of those observers who enjoyed being at the opening of each term of Circuit Court. Some of E. W.

Before making my presentation at the St. Andrew Church on May 25, I made a point to look in the computer Marriage Records of Washington County for Mr. Tharp and found him listed as General Tharp, who married Laura Leola McDaniel on 3-31-1918. St. Andrew Primitive Baptist Church has continued to maintain a sizeable membership as new members have consistently come into the fellowship down through

the years. The church, which began by holding meetings on one Sunday, and Saturday night before, in each month, is now meeting every Sunday, with a mid-week service on Wednesday nights. For many years, the congregation has enjoyed a spacious dining room, a baptistry and additional bathrooms and office space built onto the sanctuary. The church has a web page: St andrewprimitivebaptist, where the services mentioned can be found. Elder Ronald Lawrence, pastor of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church, Goodlettsville, Tenn., near Nashville, was the speaker for this special event. See you all next week.

Samuel said as far back as he can remember Bernice would get her rod and reel and the children then off to the river or creek they went. I can see her sitting on her bucket at Westville Carter private pond and leaning in and leaning back reeling all the while. Sometimes we just sat on our buckets or rode the dirt roads absorbing all about us. God, children, fishing, outdoors and writing poetry were five of her favorite things to do. She was a volunteer in other programs such as Prison Fellowship Training, Community Advisory Board for Vernon Place Eckerd Program for Girls, and District II Department of Corrections. I accompanied her to an event with the Eckerd Girls and the girls were so excited to see her, smiling, and hugging her. Her work with the special children at Hillcrest and Bonifay Middle School filled her heart with love as she extended herself in every way she could. In

the early days of Hillcrest, Bernice practiced and accompanied many a Special Olympics trip, Disney trip, as well as many other places. With a desire for furthering her education, Bernice earned a Certification in Mental Retardation from Chipola Junior College in 1983 at the age of 60. She dedicated most of her life to being a teacher’s aide in Exceptional Education at Hillcrest and Bonifay Middle Schools until she retired several years ago. Because of her love and nurturing spirit, she earned the name “Auntie.” At her prayer service/ visitation on Friday, May 3, toward the end a man walked in. He signed the book, stood by the coffin then shook Samuel’s hand and said, “I just had to come by and pay my respects to Miss Bernice.” Bernice will be extremely missed, but will forever be remembered for her loving, caring, and giving nature. The last stanza of one of her poems reads: “For God has a place prepared for us / And we can make it for He is helping us. So this not good-bye, but so long / For we will meet again and praise God All day long.”

BONIFAY — Holmes County High School gave its Class of 2013 seniors a warm and fond farewell at this year’s graduations ceremony in the presence of hundreds of friends, family members, teachers and staff Friday evening at Memorial Field. “Everyone who is graduating from here has something to be proud of and that’s making it this far,” Salutatorian Coleton Forehand said. “I’m thankful for the time I spent here. In the short four years, with all of the crazy things I’ve done, all the trouble I’ve been in and all the mistakes that I’ve made has gotten me to the point, this point, to make me the man I am today.” He said all the experiences in that time has molded them to be who they are. “That is what I’m proud of,” he said. “I am who I am; we are who we are and I’m happy with that. There isn’t anything that anyone can say to me, no titles they can place upon me or any category they can place me in that can change who I actually am. I’m not defined by

what people say I am; I define myself.” He said to dream of being successful, but don’t focus on what others define as success. “Success is too often defined by what other people think,” Forehand said. “Success isn’t a line that if you reach it and cross it then you’re successful, and if you are under it then you are unsuccessful. We should strive to find what is truly important to us in life and when we’ve found out what that is to each of us as individuals, then we should do everything we can that, whether it’s to be an astronaut or to be the best father or mother we can be. If we reach our goals then we can be considered successful. In spite of what the status quo says, if you can look at yourself and be happy with who you are, where you are at and where you are going, then you are as successful as anyone else.” He closed with saying that he hopes in 20 years they see each other again and they will all be successful. “I would like to thank God for allowing me to be a part of such a great group of people,” Forehand said. “We are the class of 2013. God Bless.”

Hooked on Outdoors If you are up to snuff on your electronics, it is possible to catch a fish of unknown legal length or quantity and turn on your smartphone and it will tell you all you need to know to avoid a ticket. This is true of the gray triggerfish, or it was until this month. On my phone it states the gray triggerfish has no season and no bag limit, but that will change June 10. The new regulation reads that from June 1 until July 31 Outdoor you must not keep Life Scott Lindsey any gray captainlindsey@ triggerfish. In the next breath the rule states that after June 10 you must obey the new ruling and stop catching and keeping triggerfish. Sort of confusing to say the least. I had to call Tallahassee to find out what all this meant. The word is this year you may catch gray triggerfish during the first ten days of red snapper season, but on June 10 you must stop until July 31. Next year on June 1 you must stop catching gray triggerfish until July 31. That is the season set in stone for gray triggerfish. The new ruling states you can keep a total of two gray triggerfish per person if you are a recreational fisherman. I asked several guides what they thought of this new regulation. Most said they had no problem with it for several reasons. First of all, they thought it would help the triggerfish population for future generations. Another reason they gave was that it was a hassle to fish for triggerfish while fishing for red snapper. While fishing for reef fish you must use a circle hook. A circle hook is great for snapper, grouper and other reef fish but a triggerfish goes about eating your bait differently. It chews the bait more than a snapper, that swallows the bait if it can get the whole thing in its mouth. More times than not a trigger will eat your bait and you will never be aware of it until you check it. Most people who fish exclusively for triggerfish will cut off the circle hook and put on a regular hook which by law is illegal. It’s possible to buy a circle of such small size a triggerfish will get caught, but if they have to change hooks they figure why not use one that will catch one every time; a small regular hook. As I see it the state has saved us a lot of time and effort by cutting out trigger fishing while trying to snapper fish. Now you can just ignore all those triggerfish that come up under your boat and eat your bait and concentrate on trying to catch snapper.

DAVID RAINER, ADCNR | Special to The News/Times-Advertiser

Anglers all along the northern Gulf of Mexico caught snapper like these on almost every trip last season, and many are wondering why more liberal federal regulations have not been forthcoming. Below, headboats or party boats are found at every Panhandle port, and they provide an inexpensive way to get at excellent red snapper fishing.


NEW DAY, NEW WAY Florida’s favorite snapper is again legal as of June 1 — but season will be short By FRANK SARGEANT It’s been a long time coming, but the 2013 red snapper season will open in the Gulf of Mexico June 1 in both state and federal waters. The seasons begin in unison, but end in what some observers call chaos. Because Florida’s Game & Freshwater Fish Commission refused to go along with federal regulations — which they said were based on grossly underestimating snapper populations — Florida, like several other Gulf states, is being penalized by the National Marine Fisheries Service with a shortened season in federal waters, those more than 9 nautical miles from shore. Unfortunately for anglers, though there’s fair snapper fishing inside the 9NM line, the great fishing now available is mostly beyond it in deeper water. The season will be just 26 days long in federal waters, closing on June 27, at 12:01 a.m., local time. Florida state waters are open June 1 to July 14. Federal regulators say the rules are for the good of the fish — and ultimately of the fishermen. But in fact, most experienced reef anglers say red snapper fishing is now better than it has been in 40 years thanks to an extended period of tight harvest regulations, and also perhaps due in some measure to the success of fish excluder devices on shrimp nets, allowing millions of juvenile snapper to escape these days when in the past they would have wound up as by-catch, dead on the deck. So why don’t the feds want to pony up longer seasons and more generous bag limits? Because of a bizarre twist in the

way they calculate the harvest — they measure it in pounds, and when their best estimate of a conservation-smart harvest is achieved, they call for closure. But snapper grow fast and live a long time, and consequently anglers are now catching tons of whoppers—which means they can catch a lot fewer before they reach those limits set by the feds, even though everybody agrees there are more red snapper and bigger red snapper than there have been in decades. It is much like the paradoxical Catch 22, and it’s causing a furious reaction among fishermen from Florida to Texas. The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council will review the 2013 red snapper population assessment during their June meeting in Pensacola. The council may request an emergency rule to increase the quota again based on the new scientific information and request NOAA Fisheries to reopen the recreational season for red snapper later in the year. But NOAA seems in a combative mood when it comes to releasing “their” fish—most long-time observers are keeping their powder dry. Captain Bob Zales of Panama City Beach, past president of the National Association of Charterboat Operators and one of the leaders in seeking reasonable regulation in offshore waters, is among many pushing for pure state management of federal waters—and these days, it’s really starting to make sense, while it didn’t 30 years back. In the bad old days, only commercial fishermen had lobbyists and power to control the rules, and all fisheries suffered as a result where they had control. But these days, the checks and balances of recreational anglers and

AVOIDING MAL DE MER For those new to fishing offshore, it’s a really good idea to load up on Dramamine, scopolamine patches or other seasick remedy starting the night before your trip—it won’t do any good to take the pill as the boat pushes off the dock. Even if seas are expected to be calm, “newbies” would do well to take seasick remedies; what seems a gentle swell to seasoned old salts may be enough to make your day very unpleasant if you’ve never been in blue water before. Another highly effective remedy is the electronic “watch” type seasick prevention device—it sends very light shocks into the nerve on the inside of your wrist, which blocks the impulse to get seasick. These are fairly pricey, at $89 to $130, but if you plan on going offshore regularly and are inclined to get sick, they’re well worth it—I’ve tried several of these and they’re highly effective, plus they don’t give you the sleepy feeling of scopolamine and Dramamine. Less expensive are pressure bracelets, with a knob to press on the nerve in your wrist—I’ve not tried them but the concept is fairly similar.

conservationists weigh in for keeping the maximum number of quality-sized fish in the water — and even the saltiest old commercial harvesters have finally come to realize that it just simply makes sense to guard the resource, so that they can not only make money fishing today, but also tomorrow, next month and next year. It should be noted that thanks goes to not only state agencies but also federal biologists for much of the research on offshore species that has made this awakening happen. In any event, during the seasons — whether you fish inshore or off — there are some tactics that consistently produce results on red snapper.

Exiting the shopping mall, my wife looked at me, smiled and said, “Now, wasn’t that good exercise.” I nodded as I walked to the car with both my hands filled with recently purchased items from the shopping mall. Now I know my part of the exercise was hauling her purchases to the car. Halfway to the car I had to stop and catch my breath and wondered if I would really make it to the car. “Come on, we’re done shopping for the day. Let’s get to the car.” While driving home, I was afraid my wife was going to wear out her smile. “This has been a great day. We’ll have to do this more often.” Then she began humming a song, “We’ve only just begun.” I think this is her theme song. In fact, I am afraid it is. About halfway home, I had a wonderful thought. It was a good day. I can always earn more money, but I can never get another wife quite as nice as the one I have. Then I began humming, “We’ve only just begun.” A verse of Scripture began playing in my mind as we continued our journey home. “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:3 KJV). Driving into the driveway, I realized this was not our final destination. God has a wonderful place prepared for those who have put their trust and faith in Him. No tricks about it. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Obituaries Willie H. Galloway Willie Helen (Commander) Galloway of Sweet Gum Head, lost her battle with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis on Saturday, May 25, 2013. After an extended illness, Helen passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by husband and family. She was 85 years of age. Born May 14, 1928, Helen spent her youth roaming the dirt roads of the Sweet Gum Head community she loved so much. At the young age of thirteen, she met C.C. (Bill) Galloway, also of Sweet Gum Head. Thus began a love story for the ages. The childhood sweethearts married in 1948, and, except for a short period of time, were life-long residents of Holmes County. She graduated from Florida State University in the spring of 1949. Later that year, she and Bill welcomed their first son. They would go on to raise five children and enjoy the full measure of love brought by seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Following college, Helen built a career, spanning 30 years, as an educator for the Holmes County School System. She served as a teacher at Prosperity Elementary, Westville, Bethlehem and Ponce de Leon Schools. She is primarily remembered by her students as the Home Economics teacher, girls basketball coach and Future Homemakers of

America (now FCCLA) sponsor. As an educator and FHA sponsor, she engaged students not only in the classroom but at local, state, and national events and competitions. She helped sponsor many field trips, including ones to Washington D.C. and the King Tut exhibition in New Orleans. She was always a caring and encouraging influence on her students. She truly loved teaching and touched many lives during her career. Helen was not just a teacher, but a pioneer in her field. She was the first home economics teacher in the state of Florida to bring hands-on application to the classroom. Establishing kitchen “labs,” she enabled her students to experience the joy of cooking firsthand rather than through demonstration only. She assisted hundreds of young men and women in learning to reach new horizons through community involvement, public speaking, parliamentary procedure and all manner of creative and leadership oriented projects and demonstrations. At one time, Helen’s FHA chapter was the most highly rated in the state of Florida – with numerous students achieving the highly coveted State Officer position. She was always willing to go the extra mile for her students – an attitude that yielded her the State Distinguished Service Award in
