BONIFAY — The Holmes County District School Board approved $74,000 for the lighting of Poplar Springs High School’s ball field during the school board’s Oct. 15 meeting. “There will be five concrete light poles installed

with half of the work being done by ourselves,” Superintendent Eddie Dixon said. “They are the only athletic field left in Holmes County that doesn’t have lights.” Board approved of K12 Florida Online Service Agreement and approved of Edgenuity Online Service Agreement with a vote of 4 to 1, with school board member Debbie Kolmetz

voting “no.” “Our school board doesn’t need to be involved in the Edgenuity online school when we already have K12 and Florida Virtural School in place that is doing a great job,” Kolmetz said. Kolmetz inquired about the online program and about the results. “It’s video courses taken by students kindergarten

through 12th grade,” Dixon said. “Some take it during school, some after school and some home-schoolers come and take courses. It’s small now, but we’re hoping it will grow in the future.” Kolmetz made a motion that audio recordings of the Holmes County District School Board meetings be made available to listen to online, which died because

Resident shares history through Civil War-era cannonball By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — Longtime Bonifay resident Ben Holland, who lived in the area of town known to older generations as Pepper Town, has been sharing his cannonball story with generations of local residents — as well as anyone who he can take a picture with. “I’ve taken pictures with senators, singers and undertakers,” Holland said. “That cannonball’s been around.” Holland explained that he applied for and received a building permit for $38 in

1974 to start building his house, and while building the footer for the home, he came across the Civil War era cannonball. “I took it straight to the Piggly Wiggly and had it weighed, which was weighed at exactly 12 pounds,” he said. “We measured it at 13 and a half inches around.” Holland has a hobby of collecting photos, and finding of the cannonball tied in with his love of photography. So over the years, he has been taking pictures of the cannonball with various people at various places. “I don’t know how it got there, but I know where

it’s going, and it’s going around,” Holland said. “I’ve had pictures taken with beautiful women and senators. I even have a picture of Robert Sikes, who was a representative for Florida and Herbert Peel, the undertaker. It’s going around, and I intend it to keep going around until its time for it to come home.” He said it was a proud piece of history from Pepper Town. “This goes back to when the county seat was in Noma and the only post office was in Caryville,” Holland said.

Remembering Otto Bylsma By CECILIA SPEARS

547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY — As Oct. 13 marked the 62nd anniversary of Elka Mosier’s family’s arrival in America, Mosier recalls that it was all on the broad shoulders of her father, Otto Bylsma, and the lengths he would go to make sure his family was healthy, happy and safe. “He was always such a hard worker,” Mosier said. “He worked all the time. I am proud of him, that he came all the way to the United States to provide for his family and to do so without government assistance.” On Oct. 13, 1951, the Bylsma family arrived in the United States by ship after a long and arduous journey from Germany. “Father used to tell us about how when he was

Mosier said. “We worked hard, but then again hard work never killed anyone. What I remember most was us singing as a family as we milked the cows every morning.” The dairy farm is now owned and operated by Mosier, who said it is only because of her father and the freedom found in America that she is able to have the life she says she holds so dear. “In 1991, the 911 office came and requested that we submit a name for the road we lived on, and I was able to honor my father by naming it after him,” she said. “It took signatures, but it was agreed on. And no one opposed, so the road was named after my father, who did all he could to make sure we had a better life for us, our children and our grandchildren in this beautiful and free country.”

ny during a time when they lost three homes because of bombings and going to bed unable to sleep because of hunger and fear. It was because of their uncles, Frank and Albert Bylsma, that Mosier’s family was able to come to America. Frank and Albert Bylsma had immigrated into America in 1930 and sent money and vouchers of their care so that Mosier’s family could follow. “We lived in New Jersey for two years, and then we came to Lynn Haven, where my uncles were living at the time,” Mosier said. “On May 1, 1953, my father bought the dairy farm here in Bonifay.” She said when they bought the farm, there were 16 cows, and it soon grew to where the children were milking 56 cows every morning before school. “We had a good life,”

teacher from page A1 “It is unfortunate that the situation occurred; however, it is important to note that the district is following standard procedure and board policy throughout this investigative process.” In accordance with state law, the case was turned over to the Department of Children and Families as well as the Holmes County Sheriff ’s Office for investigation, Dixon said. On Oct. 11, Dixon was notified of the formal charges brought against the employee, ac-

cording to the release from the superintendent’s office. The school district is engaged with legal counsel throughout this ongoing investigation. According to the sheriff ’s office, Leavins said he asked the child repeatedly to calm down, then showed him the paddle, then took the child out of the classroom on three different occasions and spanked him a total of five times on the buttocks. Based on the severity of the bruising, Leavins was

charged with child abuse, according to the release. Leavins turned himself into custody and was released on his own recognizance. Leavins was placed on paid administrative leave, pending an investigation into the incident, but Leavins submitted his resignation to the school board on Oct. 11, according to a news release from the superintendent’s office. Leavins’ resignation was accepted by the Holmes County School Board on Oct. 15.

“In 1944, they ran a line through here, and that was the start of Pepper Town. I helped build the laundry mat, the old convenience store next to it and the Piggly Wiggly across the street, and I love where I live.

and brother are there, and he also has a plot there. “I’ve lived past them, and I’ve often asked God why, and then I know that I love to see people smile and I love to make them laugh,” Holland said. “I’ve found that using that cannonball was a way to bring people and places together.

Letter to the EDITOR

Dear Editor, Mr. Seyler has made a mistake in his recent coverage of a public hearing I was involved in. He stated I had gone before the Zoning and Planning Commission initially to seek zoning changes. He is incorrect and needs to correct this mistake. My original contact with the Zoning and Planning Commission was to ask two questions about the sale of beverages that contained alcohol. The first question was if AmVets could move to a piece of property zoned commercial and continue to sell malted beverages and wine for consumption on the property. Second, could they open on Sunday and do the same. He only has to request the audio/video of the meeting to validate my above statements. I was not present to ask for a zonning change. I was merely seeking clarification on the ordinances on this matter and giving a report to AmVets Post #7 prior to even looking at a potential piece of property. This is a major oversight in my opinion. AmVets has no bearing or involvement in my complaints against the treatment I received and the violation of my civil rights under the ADA laws of the United States. I discussed this in length the first time Mr. Seyler reported on this meeting with the zoning and planning commission. That has always been my issue and continues to be my issue. In has nothing to do with zoning and planning in the sense of how a property is authorized to be used. When I was mistreated, my county commissioners did nothing to rectify the problem. Further, he failed to state that Commissioner Bush authorized an

investigation by Mr. David Corbin and Mr. Chris Hyatt and they reported to him, as the president of the commission, I, in fact, had been mistreated and my ADA rights had been violated. That has always been the complaint and the story that should be told. A citizen was denied their civil rights as protected by the 14th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America and the constitutionaly elected officials did nothing to rectify the problem and continued to deny and block a disabled citizen access to his government and would not accommodate his ADA requests. This continues to take place to this day even after documentation has been provided to both the County Vet Representative, Chris Hyatt, and the County Attorney, Jeff Goodman P.A. so my disabilities could verified. There were many things discussed at the public hearing and if you and Mr. Seyler would like to meet with me personally, I would be happy to do that. At the least, I think Mr. Seyler should retract the incorrect information and clarify the correct information. In closing and again, this is not the first time Mr. Seyler and I have disagreed on events he has covered. However, I will continue to support the news outlet in this Chipley and Washington County due to my belief that without the News, politicians would never be held accountable for anything. I do request that Mr. Seyler take just a little more time and a little further research or merely ask me when the information pertains to me a and my statements.

Respectfully,

Miles A. Anderson

Jeep Sullivan’s Outdoor Adventures The Jeep came to us in WWII as an all-terrain general purpose vehicle used by the military. It enabled commanding officers to circulate among their men. It enabled combat soldiers to get closer to enemy lines and escape more quickly. It enabled messages to get transported from one unit to another without interception. It was a unique vehicle that has come to be an invaluable part of not only the military, but the general public as well. In June, HAPPY CORNER 2004, First Hazel Wells Tison Baptist Church Bonifay acquired a Jeep. When I told my son-inlaw, Orrin Webb from Charlotte County that we had called Jeep somebody from the Arcadia, Punta Gorda, Ft. Myers area to be our minister to senior adults and men, he replied, “not Jeep Sullivan!” Indeed, that Jeep is the one we called. Our Jeep is as unique as the vehicle whose name he bears. He is first of all a God called individual committed to taking care of the needs of his church people. But he is much more than that. He has a great love for the outdoors, for hunting and fishing, and taking care of the environment. Now he has embarked on an endeavor called Jeep Sullivan Outdoor Adventures, Inc., a non-profit venture, which will enable him to share his love of the outdoors with others.

From left, Jeep Sullivan, David Corbin, Sgt Jordan Folmar, Zenna Corbin, Sgt Dustin Bell, Sgt Matt Commons. This venture is primarily a ministry of getting handicapped, and especially wounded military, out on the waterways and woodlands of the country, though he is also committed to enabling people of all ages to enjoy the great outdoors with the use of the 16 foot airboat which he has especially outfitted for the purpose. In his early years his love for hunting in the remote areas of southwest Florida brought him into conflict with the authorities as he was not always on the side of the law. A serious accident during one such escapade threatened his life and kept him hospitalized for almost a year, where a doctor at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, took a chance and successfully saved his leg, that is another story. The faith of a dying man showed Jeep his need for that kind of faith and he sought God after his hospital release. Later, surrendering to the gospel ministry he came to northwest Florida to attend what was then BBI and met his life mate, Meg Mitchell. Now, Jeep uses his unique personality and

outdoor interests to reach people, especially men, in unorthodox ways. He was invited to share some of his ministry ideas at the Florida Baptist Convention. Some of the activities he described he had initiated at Bonifay First Baptist are fishing excursions in and out of state, archery tournaments, turkey/skeet shoots, hunter safety instruction, hog, turkey, antelope and deer hunting out west with a senior adult man and a wheel-chair bound man. Jeep’s friendship with “Wounded Warrior” Carter Hess, veteran of the Afghanistan war, and also with AF Pilot Craig Dye, has resulted in officials at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington D.C. taking notice of the value of getting combat wounded military personnel out to participating in hunting, fishing, and boating the waterways and woodlands. Jeep and his wife Meg have long held licenses to hunt and capture alligators. He has now purchased the air boat which he will use in his after-hours business. Last week, the first pair of wounded warriors and their liaison flew into Marianna Airport and enjoyed 3

days of hog hunting on Hard Labor Creek Plantation and Shooting Sports and in the Sand Hills Lakes of Washington County, gator hunting and bow fishing in Bay County, and hog hunting in northwest Holmes County. Instead of vegetating in an army hospital playing video games or cards or staring at the four walls, the Army will continue to fly selected injured combat troops to TriCounty Airport in Holmes County. Whether they have lost an arm or a leg as State Attorney Glen Hess’ son, or some other injury, getting back to participating in “normal” activities is invaluable in their healing and rehabilitation Jeep Sullivan is committed to being a part of speeding that process using his own deep-seated interest and love for the outdoors and the environment and his commitment to God. His new venture has been featured in Real Florida Magazine published by Paul Goulding Agency. The non-profit venture is sponsored by Chipley Gun and Pawn, and other unnamed individuals. The scope of this venture is limitless as people discover the beauty of the unspoiled northwest Florida rivers, lakes, and forests.

The owner of that piece of ground, Cora Lee Kent, probably lived there after the death of her husband, Luther Kent, who died Sept. 13, 1935. His date of birth was May 21, 1901. His parents’ names are not known. Marriage Records in Washington County show this couple was married on Sept. 21, 1919. He is buried at Rock Hill Methodist Church Cemetery in Washington County. Upon Cora Lee’s death on Oct. 12, 1986, she, too, was interred at Rock Hill on Oct. 14. She was born on Oct. 2, 1902. The limited information contained in the funeral files of Blackburn Funeral Home, who conducted the funeral service, lists her father as Charles Hicks and the mother as Julia Atwell Hicks. She died in the National Health Care Center in Panama City, where her physician was Dr. Ernest Hasham. Her four sisters are listed as Annie Curlee, Pensacola, Francis Coussin, Haines City, Lucille Locke, Orange Hill and Odell Morris, Chipley. The Rev. James W. Morris conducted the funeral service in the chapel of Blackburn Funeral Home. The recorded music used in the funeral tribute were “Precious Memories” and “Beautiful Isle of Somewhere.” Pallbearers named were Charles Morris, Butch Locke, Carl Burgess, Greg Brannon and Leonard Hutchins. Cora Kent and Luther Kent only had one son, according to the scant records. His name was Luther Earl (Bill) Kent, who reportedly entered the U. S. Navy in 1941. He was a Chief Petty Officer when he was accidentally killed in

Hawaii, at age 34, when he fell from a scaffold. From the funeral files, we learn that the body was flown from Hawaii to San Diego where funeral services and burial were held with full Military Honors. The mother, Cora Kent, is reported to have attended the service in California. A newspaper obituary listed his survivors as wife, Jeannette C. Kent. The two granddaughters are Barbara Kline and Judith Moore. The two great-grandsons are Michael Moore and Steven Moore. Three greatgranddaughters are Karen Kirkum, Tammy Kline and Linda Corrillo.

NFCH to offer stroke victim care with telemedicine By RANDAL SEYLER

638-0212 | @WCN_HCT rseyler@chipleypaper.com CHIPLEY — Northwest Florida Community Hospital is teaming up with Gulf Coast Medical Center to offer area stroke victims a faster treatment option through the use of telemedicine and robots. Andy Long, director of neuroscience and telehealth services with Gulf Coast Medical Center in Panama City, and Daniel Dunlap, hospital outreach director with Hospital Corporation of America in Tallahassee, met with the NFCH Board of Directors on Oct. 15 to explain the program, which will allow neurologists in Panama City to interact with and treat stroke victims brought to the Chipley hospital. “There isn’t anywhere in the stretch along Interstate 10 from Tallahassee to Pensacola that offers stroke care, which means stroke victims from Jackson, Holmes or Washington counties have to be taken to Panama City, a 50-minute trip,” Dunlap told the board, The treatment of strokes is very time-sensitive, with brain function lost by the minute during the attack. The sooner a patient can get seen by a neurologist and prescribed the clot-busting drugs called thrombolytics needed to treat strokes, the better the patient outcome will be, Dunlap said. Despite the effectiveness of the thrombolytics, many patients are not treated because of late arrival at the emergency room, a delay in assessment or administration of the drug, Long said. According to a 2012 article, 41.7 percent of stroke patients had brain imaging within 25 minutes of their arrival for treatment. “Stroke is the leading cause of disability in adults, and every four minutes, someone dies of a stroke,” Long said. “Strokes can and do occur at any age, and nearly one quarter of strokes occur in patients under the age of 65.”

Currently, Gulf Coast Medical Center is the nearest facility with Joint Commission Disease-Specific Certification in primary stroke care. Through the Hospital Corporation of America Telemedicine Initiative, which will allow the neurology staff of GCMC to treat patients in Chipley using Cloud-based Internet technology, patients from the tri-county area can be brought to the ER at Northwest Florida Community Hospital and begin receiving their treatment much sooner. Hospital Corporation of America is the country’s largest non-governmental health care system with 162 hospitals and 113 ambulatory surgery centers. HCA is also the parent company of Gulf Coast Medical Center. HCA facilities are responsible for 4 to 5 percent of all inpatient care delivered in the U.S. today and has operations in 20 states and England with about 199,000 employees, Long said. The North Florida Division of HCA has 16 hospitals in north Florida and south Georgia, five ambulatory surgery centers, seven urgent care locations, two freestanding emergency departments, five radiology oncology centers, four diagnostic imaging centers, more than 50 physician practice locations and 19,000 employees. The HCA Telemedicine Initiative will allow 24/7 access to neurology and neurosurgery coverage and will increase the volume of care delivered locally, Long said. The telemedicine network is also being offered to NFCH at no charge, Long said. “The purpose of the program is to not only save money for the hospitals participating, but to ultimately lower the cost of health care. “The goal of the HCA Telemedicine Initiative is to develop a regional network that increases the ability of specialized physicians to consult, triage and diagnosis critically ill neurological pa-

tients in underserved areas by leveraging the technology of telemedicine to keep patients close to home when possible,” Long said. The telemedicine network is administered by InTouch Health, Long said. InTouch Health offers the industry’s only complete end-to-end products and service solution specifically designed to facilitate improvements in patient care and increase hospital revenue in acute care settings, according to the company website, www.intouchhealth.com. Long said InTouch Health’s experience provides the insight required to overcome the technical, program and implementation challenges faced when creating a telemedicine program, and the company has a track record in creating sustainable programs for customers. The robots use feature screens on which the patient sees the consulting doctor and the doctor sees the patient at their end of the computer. The robots come in different formats, and they are able to access data directly from the patient, even being able to “listen” to a stethoscope, Long said. The model of robot NFCH might receive is called RPLite. The robot “provides a convenient, cost-effective moveable platform for delivering state-of-the-art remote presence capabilities across a broad array of locations supported by InTouch Health’s comprehensive connective services and support,” according to the InTouch website. Features of the RP-Lite include a Pan-Tilt-Zoom camera system that optimizes viewing of patients and others; immersive, directional audio modes improve clarity in hospital settings; dual-purpose workstation can be used for data entry while physicians are logged on; and accessories include a stethoscope kit, privacy headset and composite video port. The RP-Lite looks like a

flat screen TV attached to a portable X-ray machine stand. The RP-VITA robot, however, another of the InTouch telemedicine robots, looks like something from Star Wars and has autodrive capabilities that allow it to safely navigate and travel to selected destinations without requiring user guidance. The telemedicine network is Cloud-based and runs on a fiberoptic networks, Long said. According to the InTouch website, The SureCONNECT program maintains reliable connections and is secure. The program has FDA clearance and meets HIPAA compliance requirements. “The system also pings your robot every two minutes to make sure it is functioning,” Long said. “There is no use in having this technology if the batteries go dead or it isn’t working when you need it.” Dunlap said it will take about 60 days to get the telemedicine system online and get the training completed for the NFCH staff. “We should be up and running by the end of the year,” Dunlap said. One of the most important aspects of the program is to educate the public and the area Emergency Medical Services about the stroke telemedicine program so they know to bring patients

South Walton holds back Holmes County in shootout By TINA HARBUCK

Halifax Media Group BONIFAY — The South Walton Seahawks offense scored and scored often to spoil the Holmes County Blue Devils Homecoming with a 55-40 District 3-1A victory on Friday night. “The difference was the offense,” said South Walton Coach Phil Tisa. “We just continued to score.” South Walton junior quarterback Johnathon Ortner put up some stellar numbers completing 21 of 39 passes for 405 yards and four touchdowns. Junior Alex Smith was on the receiving end of two of those TD tosses, the first a 61-yard strike in the first half and a 67-yarder in the second half. Vinnie Ciurleo had a 25-yard touchdown catch and Zach Lance had the other TD, a 23-yarder in the fourth quarter. Not only did the Seahawks get the job done through the air, but also on the ground rolling up 236 yards. Senior running back Zach Reese was the workhorse with 141 yards in 19 carries, including a 44 yard

touchdown run. Ortner rushed 14 times for 66 yards, and the first TD of the game on a 29yard scamper right up the middle. The Blue Devils had their best output of the season in scoring 40 points, all of its touchdowns by junior tailback Chad Leavins. Leavins rushed 28 times for 349 yards and five rushing touchdowns. He also had a 54-yard TD reception. South Walton scored on its first two possessions with Ortner scoring on a 29-yard run and then hitting Ciurleo for the second TD and a 14-0 lead. Holmes County answered with Leavins’ first touchdown. Midway through the second quarter, South Walton put together a 13-play drive with Chandler Parrett scoring on a 2-yard run. Parrett scored again on a 3-yard run late in the game. The Seahawks scored again on a 61-yard strike from Ortner to Smith to take a 28-7 lead with less than 3 minutes to go in the first half. Holmes opened the

Ponce de Leon’s Nick Price putts during recent golf tournament action at Dogwood Lakes Golf Club.

VERNON — The Vernon Yellow Jackets pulled out a conference win in the last minute Friday night when senior Julian Silas returned a put 89yards to break a 7-7 tie with 59 seconds left to play against district rival Graceville Tigers. The Yellow Jackets (4-3) remained undefeated 2-0 in conference play in their last home game of the season. With the loss, Graceville falls to 4-4, 1-2 in district play. The Tigers took the lead early in the first quarter when Jared Padgett scrambled 45 yards to score, capping a 72-yard, 4-play drive. Bryce Jowers’ kick was good for the extra point and Graceville had a 7-0 lead, which they held until the third quarter. Vernon sophomore quarterback Tristan Porter called his own number and ran 56 yards to score on a sweep with 6:10 left in the third. Senior Aaron Bowers’ kick was good and the score was tied 7-7. As the final minutes of the fourth quarter waned, it looked like overtime was a sure thing, then a shortlived Graceville possession that netted only two yards on four plays ended with a punt and just over a minute left to play. Silas had dropped back for the punt return and it fell right in his lap at the Vernon 11-yard line. Silas began running and dodging, nearly being forced out of bounds near the Graceville 45 before he slipped a pair of Tiger defenders and cut back toward the south edge of the field, where he was able to outrun another handful of Tigers on his way to his 89-yard return.

Bowers added a point with a field goal and the score was 14-7 with 59 seconds left to play. Graceville fielded the kickoff at their own 35, and were able to milk four

tries out of the remaining time, thanks to four incomplete passes, but were not able to get past the line of scrimmage. The Yellow Jackets took back over on downs

at the Tigers’ 35-yard line with 38 seconds left. Porter took a knee and that was the end. Vernon travels to Wewahitchka for conference play next Friday.

Blountstown rallies past Chipley Tigers’ rival clinches District 3-1A title By BRAD MILNER

747-5065 | @PCNHBradMilner bmilner@pcnh.com CHIPLEY — Blountstown’s biggest challenge in weeks couldn’t keep the Tigers from securing a district championship Friday. Chipley didn’t make it easy, however. Blountstown rallied with two fourth-quarter touchdowns to edge homestanding Chipley 14-13. Blountstown locked up the District 3-1A championship with the win, coupled with a South Walton victory over Holmes County also Friday. Chipley has a chore to advance to the postseason after falling to 0-2 in the district with two games to play against Bozeman and Holmes County. “We talked about holding our destiny in our own hands,” Blountstown coach Greg Jordan said. “Our kids kept fighting and they have a good football team. This was a battle.” It took a 69-yard passing score from Hunter Jordan to Corin Peterson midway through the fourth quarter to provide PHOTOS BY HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald Blountstown’s first lead of the Hunter Jordan had a rushing score and the gamegame. Andrew Bennett’s extra point winning passing touchdown. capped the scoring.

Jordan cut the deficit to 13-7 with a 1-yard plunge to cap an 80yard drive two minutes earlier. Blountstown had 232 yards of offense in the second half after being held to 72 in the opening 24 minutes. Blountstown’s championship-caliber defense did the rest. Chipley had only 3 yards on four drives in the second half. Chipley running back Kobe McCrary was limited to 35 yards on 13 carries. “They were getting their hands on up front and we couldn’t get into a rhythm,” Chipley coach Chip Harris said. “We missed some opportunities in the first half but our kids played with every ounce of energy they had left.” Top-ranked Blountstown overcame three turnovers, including two inside the 10-yard line, in remaining unbeaten at 8-0 overall and 3-0 in the district. The third turnover, returned 95 yards for a touchdown by Adrian Sims, seemed like a backbreaker with 2:09 to play in the third. However, Blountstown quelled the momentum by stopping a directsnapped 2-point conversion run to keep the deficit at 13-0. Harris said he felt the play was at a good time with Blountstown on its heels. He also said Sims was tired after the jaunt with the freshman also kicking extra points. “We ran that play a gazillion times and it worked,” he said. “If I had it to do over again I would.” Chipley (4-3, 0-2) had the first half ’s best drive late in the second

quarter. A 14-yard hook-and-ladder and a 17-yard connection between Jordan Finch and Zack Campbell set Chipley at the 11. McCrary ran the rest with two broken tackles for the only score in the first half. Blountstown answered with a long kickoff return and five plays to advance to Chipley’s 14 with 20 seconds to play in the half. Dylan Lee’s pass was intercepted by Carlon Smith in the end zone for Blountstown’s second turnover. Blountstown was held to 72 total yards, including 30 on the ground, in the first half. Jordan had one completion and an interception on six attempts. He finished with 98 yards and two interceptions on four completions. Chipley didn’t churn the field either with 102 total yards, 71 of those coming on the scoring drive. Finch and Darren Stewart combined to go 3 of 9 for 24 yards in the first half. Finch finished 3 of 14. Javakiel Brigham grinded out a team-high 53 yards rushing for Blountstown, which controlled the clock and the game in the second half. “We know we’ll win championships with defense,” coach Jordan said. “This was big because if they had won I’m sure we would have been in a three-way tiebreaker after Week 11.” Instead, Blountstown has a chance to finish the district slate unbeaten with a game at Holmes County next week. Chipley is at Bozeman with each clinging to slim playoff hopes.

Elders from Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center recently vacationed in Branson, Mo., and visited 37 other Signature buildings from four states. More than 71 elders and 90 stakeholders attended. Elders from Chipley saw six other Florida Signature buildings at Signature Heath Care of North Florida, Graceville, on Sept. 29. They traveled to Big Cedar Resort in Branson, where a welcoming committee waited with a special present for each elder. This four-day vacation has become an annual event that is sponsored by Signature Healthcare Corporation. Washington Rehab and Nursing Centers elders Nell Atkinson and Ezell Johnson, along with staff members Kim Potthoff and Lisa Hood, enjoyed an open-air tram tour of Dogwood Canyon Nature Park and rode the Branson Scenic Railway. “This sure is different from the short little train rides from Chipley to Bonifay I took as a child,” Atkinson said.

The last evening of the trip was spent consuming a barbecue dinner while professional dancers taught several country and western line dances and the Texas twostep. When asked about their most memorable moments, Johnson replied, “I think for me it was seeing so many

different things I didn’t expect to see.” Atkinson replied, “It was having my favorite song, ‘King of the Road,’ dedicated and sang to me by the entertainer at the Buzzard Bar!” Who would have thought that coming to the nursing home would guarantee so many opportunities to develop new friendships, see new sites and visit places they might not have had the opportunity to enjoy in the past?

Mr. Waylon Daniel Campbell and Mrs. Amanda Elizabeth Campbell are pleased to announce the birth of our little princess, Danielle Elizabeth Campbell, born Monday Sept. 16, 2013, at 11:59 a.m. She weighed 9 pounds, 15.8 ounces and was 20 inches long. Proud grandparents are Paul and Marsha Stines and Danny and Becky Campbell, and big sisters Malacie and Marissa Campbell.

BONIFAY — The Bonifay Book Club met at Los Rancheros on Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 8. Hostess for the meeting was Medea Callahan. Present at the meeting were Brenda Alford, Joyce Brannon, Cynthia Brooks, Medea Callahan, Barbara Howell, June Jones, Edna McDonald, Terri McCormick, Nancy Riley and DiAnn Shores. The minutes were approved as read by Secretary Alford. Medea Callahan reviewed Janis Owens’ book “American Ghost,” published in 2012. Owens was raised in Marianna and Ocala. Owens’ novel is based on the lynching of a black man that took

place on the courthouse lawn in Marianna in 1934 — a lynching members of Owens’ family actually witnessed. In Owens’ novel, she changes the names of communities, people and other details as she weaves her story. The lynching resonated

for generations and seemingly haunted and cursed the town and its residents. The main character of the story is Jolie Hoyt, the daughter of a Pentecostal preacher living in small-town Florida. Disregarding her family’s closet full of secrets and distrust of outsiders, she throws caution to the wind when she falls in love with Sam Lense, a Jewish anthropology student from Miami in town to study the Indian population. But their affair ends abruptly when Sam is discovered to have pried too deeply into the town’s dark racial past, becoming the latest victim of violence. Fried ice cream was served at the conclusion of the meeting.

I cannot express how to eat a donut is, so I just ecstatic I was when someone started at my convenience. gave me a coupon for a free I got at the donut shop donut. Normally, I am not and walked in and the smell overly excited about “free.” was overpowering. Nothing All I had to do was fill out like the smell of donuts a little survey online, and baking in the oven with a they would send me a code hint of coffee brewing in the DR.

I just said it. Can you see me Many things get by me without now?” noticing them. Sometimes I am just “That is not funny. You know in deep thought and not aware of my exactly what I meant.” surroundings. I can relate to Walter My grin drained from my face, and Mitty in many ways. I said to her, “Well, I said it.” There they were, freshly baked “Did,” she said inquisitively, apple fritters. I was stunned. It just “anybody ever say that before you never crossed my mind that a donut said it?” shop would have this kind of delicious My wife has many talents, skills tidbit. But there they were.

It would be difficult for baked and staring at me with alluring me to say which is her best gift, but eyes of desire. at the moment, her greatest skill is I do not know how much better a backing me into a corner.

Call it what you will, sir?” but free by any other name is still I savored the moment, licked my free in my personal dictionary. drying lips and said, “I’ll have an Getting back to my free donut. I apple fritter.” With that said, I sighed was anxious to get to the donut shop, a deep sigh of true contentment. cash in the coupon and enjoy a donut. “I’m sorry, sir,” the young woman I do not know when the best time said.

“There is no need to be sorry, young lady,” I said as cheerfully as I possibly could. “No, sir, I’m sorry, but an apple fritter is not a donut.” I can take a joke as well as anybody else. In fact, I have put forth my share of jokes. However, an apple fritter is no joking matter. “Excuse me,” I said almost breathlessly. “An apple fritter is not a donut, so what donut would you like me to get for you?” The thought began unfolding in my mind at this point that she was not joking. She sincerely believed an apple fritter was not a donut. I know an apple fritter is among the Cadillac of donuts, but in my mind, it is still a donut. I did not have much opportunity to set this young woman straight with one of the great fundamentals of life. I had to take one of her “free” donuts along with my coffee, go to a corner and think about these things. What good is “free” if it is not really what you want? Sometimes people use the word “free” as a device to get you to a place where they can sell you something else. The Bible is the only place I will accept a “free” offer. One particular verse sets this forth quite nicely. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32 KJV) This is often used out of context. The truth that makes us free indeed is none other than the truth about Jesus Christ. He is the only One capable of delivering something absolutely free. 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. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net.
