Burglaries throughout
county under
investigation by WCSO
Since mid-week, the Washington
County Sheriff's Office has received
three burglary calls involving residences
that have had property stolen in the Fall-
ing Waters area.
While this is not cause for alarm,
it is cause for caution and particularly
the importance of being aware of your
surroundings and those people and
vehicles who may seem out of place in
your neighborhood. ,
"Investigators with the Washington
County Sheriff's Office have made
finding those responsible for these bur-
glaries their top priority," said Sheriff
Bobby Haddock. "We simply will not
allow our residents to feel their homes
are not safe in Washington County and
we will aggressively pursue those who
place this safety at risk."
While investigators are following
several leads, the Sheriff's Office is
asking residents to, please report any
suspicious vehicles that are parked
in driveways or along roadways near
homes, where you would not normally
expect them to be seen.
If you suspect that you have been
the victim of a burglary, report it to the
Washington County Sheriff's Office
immediately.
Be careful to not move things around
in your home which could disturb the
crime scene and could hinder officers
from finding fingerprints or additional
information about the crime which
could lead to arrests.
The majority of these burglaries have
been committed during the day and there
have been several similarities among
these thefts and burglaries in both Jack-
son and in Holmes County.
If you have any information please
contact the Washington County Sheriff's
Office at 850-638-6111.
If callers wish to stay anonymous
you can report information to our tips
line at 850-638-TIPS.

School Board honors its best, get input


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
JoAnn Vaughn and Debbie Moss
were honored as Support Person and
Teacher of the Year Monday night by
the Washington County School Board.
They and the other nominees were
honored at Patillo's Restaurant at Wash-
ington-Holmes Technical Center earlier
that afternoon (see related article). The
two will move on to the state level of
competition.
Both received plaques from Board
Chairman Vann Brock and Superin-
tendent Calvin Stevenson, as well as
plaques from the Chamber of Com-


merce, represented by Executive Direc-
tor Ted Everett. Helen Hunt Rigdon of
U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller's office presented
Vaughn with a certificate for Special
Congressional Recognition, and Moss
with a plaque with a copy of a proclama-
tion honoring her read into the Congres-
sional Record by Miller.
"It's a privilege working with some
of the greatest educators in the state of
Florida," Brock said. "We're proud of
them and proud of what they do."
Moss expressed her thanks for her
award. "I'm so proud to be an educator
- I'm thrilled," she said.
The Citizens Request part of the


meeting was busy. Parents from the
Vernon area were on hand to voice
concerns about bus safety and fighting
and bullying.
Loyce White Jackson served as
spokesperson for Concerned Citizens
and Parents of South Washington
County, who are concerned about bus
95-2 (a 1995 model bus) and its route.
They told the Board that the bus is
overcrowded, has no air conditioning,
poor heating, and follows a particularly
long route. Jackson said that meetings

Vernon planning

for the four-lane

JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
Vernon City Council took another
step toward planning for the coming
four-laning of Hwy. 79 by approving
a memorandum of.understanding for
grant writing. Action was taken at
Council's regular meeting Monday
night at City Hall.
Washington County Grant Coordina-
tor Stacey Webb was on hand with Board
of County Commissioners Chairman,
Jerry Sapp, to offer assistance as Vernon
plans for the complete changeover of
downtown once Hwy. 79 is four-laned,
beginning in the next few years accord-
ing to the most recent state Department
of Transportation work plan.
Webb asked for a.memorandum of
understanding to allow outside consul-
tant Tammy Ray to coordinate the Com-
munity Redevelopment Plan. The Plan
would be used to redevelop downtown
after the four-lane. This would cost the
City some money, Webb noted, but she
also said that she would be available for
grant writing and coordinate grant work
to save the City some mbney. Council
approved issuing the letter.
A Community RedevelopmentAgen-
cy is in place and is already at work
planning for changes to downtown.
Bruce Stitt of West Florida Regional
Planning Council (WFRPC) was on
hand to offer assistance that could
mesh with the work of the CRA. Stitt
proposed having WFRPC do Phase II
of the City's \ isioning project that'was
completed last year. The project was
grant funded and produced the City's
visioning document. Under Phase II,
which is also grant funded ($10,000),
interns from Florida A&M University's
School of Architecture would use photos
and computers to prepare a conceptual
"look of the future" of what the new
downtown could look like. The proj-
ect (each separately funded) includes
Vernon, Wausau, Ebro, Jay and Esto.
Council expressed its desire to go for-
ward with the project.
Stitt also invited Vernon leaders to
attend the Evaluation and Appraisal
Workshop on .growth management
in Marianna on February 23. "It's an
opportunity to look at your comprehen-
sive plan and look at what updates are
needed so you can grow like you want
to," Stitt said.
Stitt also reminded Council of the
joint county workshop in Bonifay this
Friday (see "Public Hearing in Bonifay"
on page 3B of Extra).
Stitt also provided a legislative brief-
ing on proposals to reduce-property taxes
that could come up in the Legislature.
Reduction of property taxes could affect
municipal revenue. Stitt also noted that
efforts to fix the proportionate fair share
for developers for road improvements
could also come up in the next session
of the legislature.
Council will also review a memo-
randum of understanding from WFRPC
to provide assistance if a "last minute"
grant comes available.
Sapp said he wanted the City and
Washington County to be a team as
changes come to the area. "I believe
we'll go about it in the right way," Sapp
said. "We will help any way we can."
Sapp also brought Council up to
speed on economic development. He
said the proposed 84 Lumber project
announced last year at the Board of
Commissioners is "dead in the water."
"Project Pipe," however, is still in the

Who's blocking what?

Aside from the fact that it is
patently untrue that Senate Repub-
licans are blocking any debate on
the current state of the war in Iraq,
the hypocrisy of the Democrats on
the issue boggles the mind.
If you believe what you read in I 4:
the media (a very foolish thing to do
nowadays when the boys and girls
in mainstream media have finally
bowed to reality and abandoned
any pretense of being non-partisan),
the GOP leadership is hell-bent on
preventing any debate on the Sen-
ate floor about the planned surge of t
troops and the president's new strat-
egy of cleansing the strife-ridden
streets of Baghdad and neighboring a ing
Anbar province.
That's flat-out untrue, but stick-
ing to the truth is not one of the 11
things for which the Democrats and
their media allies are best known. Michael Reagan

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor,
Two new bills are currently in front of the United States Congress
- S.B. 1 and H.R. 4682 - and they are aimed at regulating the freedom
of speech of churches and conservative groups by classifying them
as "lobbyists." This is highly unsettling, as it is absolutely unconsti-
tutional, to restrict and regulate the right to free speech.
It is also wrong to target pastors, churches, and conservative or-
ganizations and force them to register as "lobbyists" simply because
of their religious preferences and views. The ACLJ has launched
a nationwide Petition of Protest campaign to urge the House of
Representatives and the Senate to reject this legislation. We will
not stand idly by. Along with our nationwide petition campaign, we
have also assembled a legal and legislative team to focus on this
proposed legislation. The ACLJ is also preparing a complaint to file
in federal court if necessary.

Adam Smith for Dummies courtesy of P.J. O'Rourke


"On The Wealth of Nations"
by P.J. O'Rourke (Atlantic
Monthly Press)
Adam Smith's seminal 1776
masterpiece explaining the magi-
cal workings of free markets is
riddled with economic and social
truths that still hold up today. But
trying to read "The Wealth of
Nations'" 900 dense pages is an
endurap�ptest for eyvn the most
serious modern reader, or prison
lifer, for that matter.
Atlantic Monthly Press has
solved that problem by hiring
satirist P.J. O'Rourke to dig into
Smith's opus and tell the rest of
us what it's about. O'Rourke's
wit, journalism skills and eco-
nomics acumen make him a
good choice for Atlantic's new
series of "Books That Changed
the World," which kicks off Jan.
10 with the publication of his
lively exegesis "On The Wealth
of Nations." I recently talked to
O'Rourke by phone from Wash-
ington, D.C.
Q: What's the sound-bite syn-
opsis of Adam Smith's epic?
A: Well, that it's really about
freedom and morality and not
actually about economics is re-
ally the one sentence summary.
So when one is sent to read it
as an economics thing, it's like,
"Dude, this is like 200-and-some
years old. What did he know? He
didn't have an iPod...." But his
book is really about why we put
up with a free market.
Q: You actually read "The
Wealth of Nations" and its pre-
decessor, "A Theory of Moral
Sentiments." But let's stick to
"Wealth of Nations." Does it
hold up?
A: No let's go back one book,
because "The Theory of Moral
Sentiments," being somewhat
more abstract; holds up bril-
liantly. I mean, there's not a word
wrong with that thing today. You
can read that today with the same
number of"ah-ha" moments, be-
cause it's about the fundamentals
of human nature. It's a brilliant
work of ethics and psychology
and philosophy, but not the kind
of philosophy you have to use
numbers to understand. It's a
damn good book. It's a sort of
self-help book, too. Clean up


Bill Steigerwald

the language, you could hit the
best-seller list with this one. I
probably wrote about the wrong
book.
The "Wealth of Nations," of
course, is fighting some battles
like the intellectual battle about
whether gold and silver have
intrinsic value, as opposed to
notional value, that are long-
gone stuff. So there are sections
of "Wealth of Nations" that are
moot, though it's not that they
don't hold up.
Q: Is there any single most
enduring truth from "The Wealth
of Nations"?
A: Oh, totally. When Smith
starts out right at the beginning
about how you have to allow for
the human desire for self-better-
ment or self-interest. And how
you have to have freedom of
exchange between people. That
is so fundamental, not only to
making an economy work right,
but just to any decent democracy
or society. Yeah, it blows you
away how clearly he puts this.
Q: I've tried to read "The
Wealth of Nations."
A: It's a slog, there's no doubt
about it. I don't really recom-
mend it.
Q: But you can find chunks
of it and quotes from it referred
to by other famous people. It's
like, "Who needs Hayek? Adam
Smith said everything back in
1776, just in different words." It
seems like everyone has stolen
from Smith, who apparently
stole from others before him
too, right?
A: Oh, definitely. He owes


a huge debt and he makes no
claim for tremendous originality.
Friedrich Hayek would be the
first to tell you that. If Hayek
were around, and you said that
to Hayek, he would agree com-
pletely. As would Milton Fried-
man. Not about certain academic
work that Friedman did, and
ditto for Hayek. These guys
did all sotts of stuff we 4dn't
understand, about price curves,
Phillips Curves, Phillips screw
drivers and heavens knows what.
But as far their stuff that any
of us understand "The Road to
Serfdom" or "The Free to Be You
and Me" or whatever, they would
be the first to say "Yes, we see so
far. But we're not even midgets
standing on somebody's shoul-
ders. We're head lice looking out
from Adam Smith's wig."
Q: Who should be forced to
read the original today, which
politicians or East Coast edito-
rial boards?
A: All of them. All of them.
Right, left and middle of the
road. It'd be easy for me to
pick on the leftists, particularly
about protectionism. But any
understanding of the fundamen-
tal philosophical and moral and
ethical groundwork beneath free
markets seems to be just absent.
The world these days has a
Clintonian view. It's not that they
disagree with market freedoms,
but they regard it as teleological,
as a means to an end. "Why do
we want free markets? Because
they make ordinary people more
prosperous." That isn't the point.
The point is, either we are free
and equal or we are not.
Q: Is there anything Smith
wrote that you think he would
be ashamed of today?
A: Well, not ashamed of, but
there is stuff he is wrong about.
Especially when he gets into
specific policy recommenda-
tions. Essentially the whole last
book of "The Wealth of Nations"
is nuts-and-bolts policy recom-
mendations.
He is self-contradictory in
there. He is often wrong. It
shows the problem that no mat-
ter how good your ethical and
moral foundations may be, when
it comes to making those recom-


mendations on the sewer board
about whether 'or not to build
a new aeration plant, they are
viciously tricky. No amount of
brilliance as an economist, a
philosopher, a moralist, an ethi-
cist or prose stylist necessarily
grants you the right view. At the
moment that he wrote this book,
you could have taken him to task
for some of his stuff andhe prob-
ably would have agreed.
Q: Is there anything Smith
wrote about that you completely
disagree with?
A: Well, as I say, there are
specific policy recommendations
about taxation and education.
He's very confusing about state
support in terms of religion. But
it would be tactical disagree-
ments rather than strategic, it
would be detail stuff. But no,
there is no whole side of his
thinking that gives one pause.
It's not like Hume. Hume is
this incredibly admirable and
sensible man, but he insists that
he is an atheist. Smith doubted
him a bit on this, they were great
friends. But Hume maintained
that he was an atheist and so you
go, "No. I just can't agree with
that." But there's nothing like in
Smith, who is, incidentally, very
coy.about his religious ideas.
Q: Is there anything funny in
"The Wealth of Nations"?
A: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Smith has
a kind of dry, slightly academic
sense of humor. But there is
this wonderful passage about
refuting the idea that we should
always try to get more gold and
silver and always try to export
consumable properties so as to
increase our hoard of gold and
silver, which.is our real measure
of wealth.
He said, you know, you could
say the same thing about pots and
pans. They are real durable too.
So why don't we manufacture
and keep more pots and pans?
Yeah, he can be quite funny and
quite cutting.

Radio days
Saturday, Jan. 28, marked
two years since the "prattler"
concluded 22 years of broad-
casting on WBGC-AM radio
in Chipley. The three-hour live
Saturday morning program was
entitled "Bluegrass Express."
Bluegrass, Bluegrass-gospel and
old-time music were played from
the records, tapes and CDs of the
radio host.
My family and I were in-
volved in promoting the pre-
senting bluegrass festivals in
the facility known locally as the
Northwest Florida Music Park
and Campground for 15 years.
We attended numerous other
music festivals during this time.
Some that I recall attending in
Florida include Lawtey, Withla-
choochee, Live Oak and White
Springs. In Alabama, we went
to festivals in Mobile, Hennegar,
Jemison, Elba and Headland.
We were at the Berea, Ky.,
musical events several times.
We attended a Georgia festival
at Hahira.
We attended one day of a
three-day festival at Kodak,
Tenn., and one day at a Chero-
kee, N.C., event during our
work experience at Dollywood.
Our only bluegrass visit in Mis-
sissippi was near Lumberton.
The last three-day festival for
us was in Eureka, Ark., three
years ago.
At this point in our lives, we
have again attended a three-day
bluegrass music festival. It was
held in Andalusia, Ala., in the
warm and comfortable Coving-
ton County Convention Center
on Jan. 25, 26 and 27.
We enjoyed it immensely
and considered it a bluegrass
reunion, seeing so many of the
fans who came to visit and sup-
port our festivals in Chipley for
many years.
Jesse McReynolds of the Jim
and Jesse Fame, Marty Raybon
of the family group, American
Bluegrass Express and later,
Shenandoah, The Sullivan Fam-
ily (Enoch and Margie) and
SRhonda Vincent and Rage, were,
headline bands for the Andalusia
event.
Jesse McReynolds, Marty
Raybon and The Sullivans were
frequent visitors to the music
park in Chipley and it as good
to see all of them again.
Many other talented bands,
both bluegrass and bluegrass-
gospel, appeared on the stage
during the three-day event.

TSIC update
The following is a news
release from Take Stock in
Children.
Many people in Washington
County have now heard of the
Take Stock in Children Scholar-
ship program. They know that
college scholarships have been
awarded to deserving children in
Chipley and Vernon for the past
two and a half years.
What most people don't know
is that Take Stock is actually
a state-wide program that has
given more than 11,000 children
the opportunity to succeed in life
by awarding them over $78 mil-
lion in college scholarships and
has received national recognition
by being awarded the Excellence


Tony Wells had one of the necklace-type IDs which all
attendees of the Andalusia festival wore throughout
the weekend event.


The Covington County Con-
vention Center is managed by
Tony Wells. He had many valu-
able volunteers helping with the
festival including educators,
Dr. Dale Dunn and wife, Jane;
Dr. JoAnn Smith, an Andalusia
medical doctor, who is a native
of Louisiana, and Tony's mother-
in-law, Mary Helen Thigpen.
Hester and I met Tony's fa-
ther, Chester Wells, in 1984
when we drove to Red Level,
Ala., for the express purpose of
finding someone with the name
of Wells who could give us
background family information.
My grandfather, James Thomas
Wells, was bon Dec. 14, 1873, in
the community of Oakey Streak,
just north of Red Level.
His parents brought him to
Holmes County at the age of
nine. Contact with relatives the
short distance of on hundred
miles away was almost unheard
of during those years.
Since meeting Chester Wells,
and in making other visits to the
area, we have come to know his
son, Tony Wells, and had the
,'privilegd:Of meeting Chester's:
only daughter, Paulette Wells
Bush. Chester's son, Michael
was gravely injured in an acci-
dent early in life. He continues
to live in the home of his dad and
seems to appreciate our visits.
We knew there was another
son, Gerald Wells, but had not
met him until the recent visit.

across Florida had been given.
He formed a leadership commit-
tee with local leaders and started
raising the funds to award the
first scholarships to Washington
County youth.
Today, 34 children in Chi-
pley and Vernon have four-year
scholarships waiting for them
after graduation. In financial
terms, this means that $340,000
has been raised in less than three
years. At the Take Stock in Chil-
dren mentor and donor banquet
last month, Walters announced
he would be awarding another
10 scholarships this year.
This would bring the to-
tal amount of funds raised to
$440,000 and 44 students from
our county will be given scholar-
ships. In return, these students
must produce good grades and

many. of the old-time bluegrass
friends, as well as listening to
and enjoying the performance
of all the talented bands, was an
enjoyable experience for Hester
and me.
However, I will have to admit
that the visit with Chester and
Michael, as well as meeting his
care-giver, Pamela, along with
many more family members,
became the highlight of the three
days spent in Andalusia.
We were treated royally by
Tony Wells and his staff at the
convention center. I met and
talked with three of the Cov-
ington County Commissioners,
Carl Turman, Greg White and
Bragg Carter. I did not meet Kent
Colquett and Harold Elmore, the
other two commissioners, who
were probably present.
The Board of Commissioners
sponsored the bluegrass festival
as a first-time effort and all are
hoping for it to become an an-
nual event.
Before the weekend was over,
we met Tony's wife, Julie, and
their daughter, Airy, as well as
,their sons, Michael and h is \fe.
Kelly, Jim and girlfriend, M.J.
All were warm and friendly to
us and seemed to regard us as
family.
At the Friday night music
performance, we were pleased
to meet Gerald Wells and wife,
Sue, for the first time. We had a
lengthy and pleasant visit with
them and got a report on their

two sons, Danny Wells and
David Wells, and two daughters,
Donna and Allison.
Both Tony and Gerald bought
a Heritage of Washington Coun-
ty book. I felt especially honored
that they were interested in the
book.
Joining Hester and me from
the Florida Wells' clan were our
son, Emory, and wife, Robin.
Emory plays banjo and sings
in the Run'd Off Band, which
participated in the program. Ha-
zel Wells Tison, husband, Jack
Tison, and son, Glen Tison, were
in attendance. Glen's bluegrass
band, Crosscut, performed on
stage with Glen featured on
mandolin and vocals. Glen's
wife, Shelia, and their daughters,
Katie, Hannah and Jenny, made
the trip from their Panama City
home.
Max Wells and wife, Joyce,
were in Aldalusia for the Sat-
urday performances. All of us
Florida Wellses were "mixing
and mingling" heavily with the
Alabama Wells "kin" as the
weekend progressed.. I believe
all of our clan felt that we have
finally found another element
of our Wells descendants who
live so near, but yet have been
so far in regards to our contact
with them.
Steven Perry Wells, son of
Max and Joyce, is the genealo-
gist in our family. I think he is
close to finding the missing link
which will tie the Wells family
in Covington County directly to
our ancestral lineage.
Afew years ago Steven, along

certify them as Firefighter I, for
the state of Florida. "We will
go right into First Responder
training next," Baxter said. He
commended Troy Cunningham
and others for their work in
training.
Efforts continue to obtain
funding for a new fire truck.
The department fought several

cently, including two mutual
aid calls. There was discussion
about several suspicious fires
in the Vernon fire area that are
reportedly under investigation
by the state fire marshall.
*Heard the Public Works

Jackson also said that the route
was one that was combined due
to fuel shortages. "We're not sure
a fuel shortage is worth the safety
of our children," he said.
One parent expressed his
concern about the health of his
child, who has asthma, which
could be exacerbated by dust
when the windows are open

Concerns were also expressed
about mold and mildew on the

nator Bill Lee said that the heater
was fixed as soon as the problem
was reported. Lee said he will
check for mold immediately.
- Lee said the school district
tries to cycle out the bus fleet
every 10 years, i.e., a 10-year
old bus is replaced by a new bus.
This is not always possible and
several older buses, including
95-2, remain in service. The dis-
trict purchased nine new buses
last year, and will purchase five
more this year. One of the new
71-passenger air-conditioned
buses will replace 95-2. Lee
said it takes about 210 days for
delivery of a new bus.
Lee said routes are moni-
tored continually and adjusted


when capacity is close to being
reached. This has been done sev-
eral times this school year.
Treya Turpin was on hand to
discuss fighting and bullying at
Vernon Middle School. Turpin
said she removed her grandson
from VMS due to his being
bullied by other students. She
said it got so bad that the boy
came to school expecting his
"morning beatdown." She said
her grandson was even stabbed
with a pencil. She noted that
other students were also victims
of such behavior, and that other
parents are also concerned.
"Vernon has a wonderful
school system, but I want to
know what we are going to do
about this," Turpin said. She said
that much of the behavioral prob-
lems stem from the poor home
life of some students, and sug-
gested that such offenses should
require mandatory counseling.
"We have policies in place
to deal with this specifically,"
Brock said. He also noted that it
was important that all staff and
faculty are aware of those poli-
cies. Brock also noted that teach-
ers are increasingly being asked
to do much more than teach.
"Teachers are being asked to
be mentors, be the momma and
be the daddy," he said. "You
can't counsel them all the time.
At some point you need to dis-
cipline." He said that once the
problem is identified that Steven-
son "would be on top of it."

never runs smooth, with these

country road.

Catch The Muses live when they visit Chipley.

County Arts Council Series underway
The Irish band The Muses is coming to the Blue Lake Commu-
nity Center in Chipley for a free concert hosted by the Washington
County Arts Council on Sunday, Feb. 25, beginning at 2 p.m. Light
refreshments will be served.
The public is invited to enjoy the wide range of exotic instru-
ments employed by the three-member band, while learning more
about upcoming performances and events sponsored by the council.
Be sure to clear your calendar to attend this kick-off event set for
Sunday, Feb. 25.
"The Arts Council is proud to be able to bring performers of the
caliber of The Muses to Washington County," says Arts Council
Secretary Amanda Broadfoot, "and we're eager to hear about the
kinds of events that fans of the arts in our county would like to host
in the future."
An acoustic, family-friendly Celtic folk band, The Muses is
comprised of Tanya Brody, Matthew Gurnsey and Rebec -a Trombly.
Making use of instruments such as the hammered dulcimer, man-
dolin, fiddle, penny whistle and, of course, the guitar, The Muses
entertain audiences with sea shanties, ballads, and other traditional
folk songs.
Recognizable songs such as the tragic ballad "Barbara Alien" are
mixed with original folk songs like "The Ballad of Jack O'Lantern"
(penned by Brody) and light-hearted fare such as "Ramblin' Rover."
-There is a strong Scotch-Irish community in Noi'tihwpstFlorida and
some of these songs have been entertaining audiences for centuries,"
Broadfoot explained. "However, the music of The Muses connects
with audiences of all ages and every lineage."
The 15-member Washington County Arts Council board was
created by the Board of County Commissioners in September 2006.
The Arts Council was charged with the mission of promoting the
arts in Washington County, as well as promoting local artists and
performers throughout the region.
Interested music fans can check out audio samples of The Muses'
work at www.sonicbids.com/themuses. For more information on the
concert or the Washington County Arts Council, contact Amanda
Broadfoot at 773-2795 or email abroadfoot@rowlandpublishing.

Nutrition-packed raisins are kids' and athletes' friends


NANCY BERKOFF
Freedom News Service
You've heard of the familiar
vitamins A, C and E. They are
considered antioxidants, help-
ful in the fight against many
diseases.
Recent research by the US-
DA's Nutrition Research Center
on Aging, in Boston, is excited
about a whole class of powerful,
protective antioxidants, called
phytochemicals. Phytochemicals
are naturally occurring substanc-
es found in fruits and vegetables
that are thought to help prevent
many diseases, perhaps even
more so than vitamins.
Eaten together, vitamins and
phytochemicals that is, you
can help your body to fight the
battle of disease prevention.
When tested, raisins had the
highest amount of antioxidant
phytochemicals, followed by
oranges and broccoli. The serv-
ing size tested was two ounces'
of raisins.
Children's nutrition studies
show that many children get
up to one third of their calories
from snacks. The sweetness of
raisins can appeal to the small
fry, while being fat-free, high
in fiber, vitamins, minerals and
phytochemicals can appeal to
adults. Not that raisins are just
for kids; adults benefit from nu-
trition-packed snacks, as found
in raisins.
Raisins are the athlete's friend.
Recent studies have shown that
adults who ate raisins before
working out had less cellular
damage (read: less breakdown
of tissue, like muscles and skin)
than those who had other snacks.
A study, of marathon runners
showed that runners who were
given eight ounces (one cup) of
raisins before a marathon were
better protected from oxidative
damage than runners who had
sugar-based snacks.
Oxidative damage is thought
to increase the body's suscepti-
bility to chronic disease, such as
diabetes and heart 'disease.
Try both black and golden
raisins. Black raisins are a bit
higher in nutrients than golden

raisins. Many bakers use raisin
puree to replace some or all of
the fat in baking recipes, espe-
cially for muffins, quick breads,
such as carrot cake or zucchini
bread, chocolate cakes and cook-
ies and other moist, dark-colored
products.
You can create your own
raisin puree by soaking raisins in
cold water until they are plumped
and then processing them in a
blender 6r food processor.
Raisins add sweetness to
any dish. In addition to adding
sweetness to yogurt, sorbet, hot
and cold cereals and trail mix,
think of using raisins as the
"sweet" in sweet and sour dishes.
Use raisins and grapefruit juice,
lemon juice, vinegar or wine as
part of the flavoring for poultry,
lamb, fish, rice, tofu, savory
tomato or brown gravies or in
salad dressings.

It Takes Three


Recently I have heard many
people who have been married
for 40 or so years speaking
of how they have come to the
conclusion that they don't have
anything in common, so they
just decide to do their own
thing; some live in different
ends of the house, while others
have decided to live in different
houses totally.
Though I've only been mar-
ried 31 years, I don't get it.
Even though they have worked
together all through the child
raising years, and through many
grandchildren, they think they
no longer have anything in com-
mon. Apparently they are both
blonde (nothing against blondes,
I'm married to a blonde; it's just
a figure of speech).
Because after working
through all the situations that
comes with raising children, and
the joy that grandchildren bring,
and especially getting them into
the world, you've got to have had
something in common.
More than anything, if you're
anything like Judy and myself,
we've had a lot of adventures
that we can always laugh about
as we've dreamed of the day of
a quiet house, while seeing the
fruit of our labors now make it
on their own.
I also read two stories that
give good examples of what
couples should do to keep their
marriage alive and exciting "'til
death do we part" as the Lord
knew would be best and blessed.
I read both stories in "Preaching
Now".
The first says that "Years ago,
when Johnny Carson was the


~'h 4C


From the


Heart

Tim Hall


host of The Tonight Show, he in-
terviewed an eight-year-old boy.
The young man was asked to ap-
pear because he had rescued two
friends from a coalmine outside
his hometown in West Virginia.
As Johnny questioned the boy,
it became apparent to him and
the audience that the young man
was a Christian. So Johnny asked
him if he went to Sunday school.
When the boy said that he did,
Johnny inquired, 'What are you
learning in Sunday school?'
"'Last week,' came his reply,
'our lesson was about when
Jesus went to a wedding and
turned the water into wine.' The
audience roared, but Johnny tried
to keep a straight face. Then he
said, 'And what did you learn
from that story?'
"The boy squirmed in his
chair. It was apparent that he


hadn't thought about this. But
then he lifted up his face and
said, 'If you're going to have a
wedding, make sure you invite
Jesus.'"
.From the mouths of babes,
that is the best I have ever heard.
If you desire to have a long,
happy marriage, know that it
takes "three".
Yes, there needs to be one
man and one woman, who are
not only in lust, but who are in
love with each other and com-
mitted to each other. But you
need to always invite Jesus to
the Wedding, and then into your
home and your marriage.
Because if each of you is
striving to be the kind of person
He would have you to be by
building your relationship with
Him on a daily basis, then you
will defiantly grow stronger in
love with each other.
The other story I read, told
that "Queen Victoria received the
stunning Kohinoor Diamond as
a gift from a maharajah when he
was a boy. Later as a grown man
this maharajah visited Queen
Victoria again and asked her for
the stone.
Taking the diamond and
kneeling, the maharajah gave it
to the Queen again, saying, 'Your
Majesty, I gave you this jewel
when I was a child, too young to
know what I was doing. I want to
give it to you again in the fullness
of my strength, with all my heart
and affection and gratitude, now
and forever, fully realizing all
that I do.'"
Most of us got married while
we were still kids, and thinking
we were mature and grown. We


now look back and realize how
young and foolish we were then.
It's in these more mature years
now, when all our senses are in
tack that we need to realize what
a prize we have, and let the other
know, by basically saying, "My
love, I gave you my heart when
I was a child, too young to know
what I was doing.
"I want to give it to you again
in the fullness of my strength,
with all my heart and affection
and gratitude, now and forever,
fully realizing all that I do be-
cause God made you just for
me."
With these two thoughts in
mind I will end, as I have for
many years on Valentine's Day
by saying, if each couple would
live according to Ephesians 5:22-
27, there would be no marriage
problems.
Remember guys all she wants
is "To be treated like a queen, by
a man who deserves to be treated
like a king." And to my Queen,
"I love You, Thank you for being
my Valentine.".

'In God We Trust!'


Our nation's motto says, "In
God we trust," but do we really?
It seems we have lost the fear of
God, or the reverence, for Him,
in our beloved country. People,
open your eyes and see what is
really happening to us!
Here are the words to a song
God gave me to write several
years ago, around 1987 or 88. I
never did get it published or get
it to someone to sing, and that
is a failure on my part. I did get
it copyrighted back then. It is
called "In God We Trust". May
God forgive my slothfulness, in
not getting it out there so that it
could be a blessing to someone.
Many years back, my sons, a
cousin of theirs, and a friend
of theirs, did sing it at several
different places, when they had
a singing group, called "Manna
Ministries". However, I never
did get it published, which now
I can see it is a song that would
really fit the day we are living
in. Here are the words; see what
you think:
"In God We Trust"
Verse one: Some people
may fear, the things they hear,
troubles from far and near; But
there is One Who'll never, His
ties from us sever, ifonly, in God
we trust.
Verse two: This nation must
learn, to God to return, repent,
and come to him now;
Or we will see destruction, so
alter your direction, and utter, in
God we trust!
Verse three: Come before His
throne, come on your own, come
before His courts with praise.
And forever more rejoicee; with
joy lift up ypur voice and sing,'in
'God we trust !" " '*
Chorus: In God we trust, in
God we trust; we are His chil-
dren; Kept safe in His care, love
and obey Him, and live. with
Him there.
In case you wonder why I
included this song; this is why.
Every time I was awake last
night, which was-several times;
this song was constantly on
my mind, as well as all day,
yesterday; so I felt that God was
directing me to write this article
in this way. I have learned that it
pays to obey God.
I believe our founding fa-
thers were right on key, when
they chose this as our national
motto. Most of them knew that
with God at the helm of our
country, we would have a happy
and blessed country. It is when
we forget this and try to go our
own way, that we as a nation get
it trouble. Only God knows the
way we should take; but when
we get away from this; that is
when trouble starts to come
our way! It was the Almighty
God that created the Earth, the
Heavens, and al of the universe;
contrary to what some 'johnny
come latelys", would have us


Manna


Helen Hodge


to believe. So many of them
are spreading idolatry, by one
means or another. That breaks
the first one of the ten com-
mandments which God handed
down to us through Moses. That
first commandment says: "Thou
shalt have no other God before
Me." That means no other God
period.
In Galatians the first chapter,
verses eight and nine, the apostle
Paul said, "Though we, or an an-
gel from heaven come preaching
any other gospel than we have
preached, let him be accursed."
That pretty much covers it, so
don't let anyone or any other
teaching deceive you!
Remember this, satan, also
known as the serpent, told man-
kind the very first lie, read about
it over in the third chapter of the
bopk','df Genesis; 'in"te' ol ly
*Bible. The devil is thki�ir of
lies,.and he's still at it; and if we
let him deceive us, it is our own
fault, if we don't read ahd study
God's word for ourselves. Think
about this: the book of Revela-
tion tells us, "All liars will have
their place in the Lake ofFire:
and you can believe it; because
God's word does not lie! Thank
God we still have the Word of
God to go by, if only we as a
nation would do it!
When Madelyn Murray
O'Hare and her followers, were
successful in getting prayer and
Bible reading removed from our
schools, this nation almost im-
mediately reaped an epidemic of
drugs and drunkenness, greater
than had ever attacked our na-
tion before! And where do you
think all of the foul weather has
come from in recent years? Read
in God's Word where He sent
forth His whirlwind in anger
and great wrath, because of the
extreme wickedness of mankind.
We need to grow up, and wake
up, America, and get back to our
true, Godly roots, honoring God
by giving to Him His rightful
place and remember:
"IN GOD WE TRUST"

Ever Day Should Be

.. Valentine's Day
,' TiaditionallySt. Valentine's Day is a time when we express
how much we love and care about our family and friends. I
fondlykrecall.Valentine's Dhy during my years in elementary
school,~'ien all of the students would have the little
J'pqnch -out". valentines which we would sign and exchange
with other students, teachers and our families. Everyone
received several cards, expressing in one way or another, St.
Valentine's message of love.
The Bible tells us that God is Love
and that His Ten Commandments
are based on the principles of loving
S God with all our hearts and loving our
III neighbors as we love ourselves. Car-
ing about those around us on a daily
basis will strengthen our relationship
with God and our neighbors.
We all need love and support more
than just once a year, and our Heav-
enly Father wants His love to be celebrated every day of our
lives.
"Love your neighbor as you love yourself."
If you love someone, you will never do him wrong....

There is a new animal shel-
ter in Holmes County known
as Ben's Place. Ben's Place is
owned and operated by Wilfredo
Morales, former 4-H Agent in
Holmes County.
"While I was the 4-H Agent
of Holmes County, I had the
grand opportunity to meet many
of Holmes County residents and
work with their children," said
Morales.
"Together we created many
positive, constructive, educa-
tional and recreational activities
and the benefactors were the
children."
"Along with various volun-
teers and my family we have
embarked on a campaign to take
humane and responsible action
as it relates to the care of dogs
and cats. W
"e have successfully rescued
29 dogs and six cats. We have
already found homes for three
dogs and one cat," he said.
Call 263-7693 or email

Some of the students got real-

There were beautifully decorated

bags. Other containers - boxes
of all shapes and sizes - were
decorated to look like mailboxes.
One looked like an alligator and
one resembled a bee hive.
Refreshments of cup cakes,
cookies, candies and juices were
served, thanks to the parents of
the students.


Think swine!
Many animal experts think
pigs get a bad rap. They are
often viewed as dirty creatures
that are not smart and show little
affection.
"That's not true at all," says
Dr. Bruce Lawhorn, a swine ex-
pert at Texas A&M University's
College of Veterinary Medicine
& Biomedical Sciences. "There
are a lot of misconceptions
about pigs, and it's one animal
people don't really seem to
understand."
Pig facts include:
*Intelligence. Pigs are high-
ly intelligent animals and are
ranked No.4 in the smart de-
partment, behind chimpanzees,
dolphins and elephants. "They
are considered the smartest of the
'barnyard' animals and can be
easily trained," Lawhorn says.
*Cleanliness. "People think
pigs are filthy, but that's not
really true," he adds. "Pigs
can't sweat because they have
few sweat glands, so when they
roll around in the mud, they
are trying to stay cool. But in
most months, they are clean
animals."
*Not all pigs have curly
tails - some have straight tails,,
Lawhorn adds.
*Pig valves have been used
in human heart operations for.
years and there are more than
40 drugs made from pigs, among
them insulin.
Lawhorn says piglet is a term
referring to a small pig that is yet
to be weaned, while hog refers to
a mature pig. Boars are males,
and gilts are females until they
have piglets, and then they are
called sows.
He adds that hogs can be
quite large; they average about
260 to 280 pounds at only six
months, the age when most are
taken to a plant for processing.
In the United States, about 100


million hogs are slaughtered
each year for the meat packing
industry, Lawhorn adds.
"The hog industry is dif-
ferent from other livestock in
that almost all of it is run by
big businesses and not by in-
dividual farmers or ranchers,"
he says. "There's one company
in the U.S. that controls about
25 percent of all the hogs in
America."
Pigs have four toes on each
hoof but only walk on two of
those toes, often appearing as if
they are tip-toeing.
Also, pigs can easily get
sunburned and have sensitive
skin, he notes. They don't have
very good vision, but their sense
of smell is highly developed,"
Lawhom says.
"In France and other coun-
tries, they are trained to locate
mushrooms. But in many parts
of the world, such as the Middle
East and Arabian countries,
people there are no fans of pigs.
Their religious beliefs forbid
eating or owning pigs." That's
far different than here in the U.S.,
where pigs are often raised as
pets and are groomed as show
animals at FFA and 4-H events.
Texas is the biggest 'show pig'
state in the country."
But even in the U.S, pigs can
be seen as pests, most notably
in the form of feral hogs. Even
though hunters enjoy stalking
wild pigs, the creatures are
considered severe nuisances to
farmers and ranchers, and the
feral hog population has more
than doubled in the last 10 years,
Lawhor says.
Texas has an estimated two
million feral hogs, more than
any state, and the meat is prized
by many restaurants where it is
served as wild boar at expensive
prices. And yes, hungry din-
ers like to pig-out on its exotic
taste.

Hot time in Chipley: Tigers fall to Marianna in district finals


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
Anyone wanting hot bas-
ketball action needed to
be in Chipley Saturday
night. Arch-rivals Chipley
and Marianna gave a loud,
packed house all it could
ask for. Once the smoke
cleared Marianna was the
winner, 67-61, and the Dis-
trict 2-3A champion.
The contest was a close
one throughout, with the
Tigers holding the lead
for most of the game as
they worked to overcome


Marianna's size advan-
tage. Marianna's challenge
was to neutralize Chipley's
quickness. Chipley defeated
Holmes County to advance
against the Bulldogs, who
received a first-round bye
as top seed.
The homestanding Tigers
took a 14-10 in the first
quarter an increased their
lead to 26-18 as halftime
approached. The Bulldogs,
however, made an 8-1 run
as the half wound down
and trailed just 27-26 at
the break. Chipley used


an aggressive man-to-man
(including a full-court press
at times) and a patient of-
fense to attack the Marianna
defense, while Marianna
used a half-court defense
and strong rebounding to
counter.
The Tigers again stretched
their lead, going ahead 41-
33 toward the end of the
third quarter. The Bulldogs
again closed fast, going on
an 8-2 run with 1:29 left to
close to 43-41. The Tigers
again began pulling away,
taking a 58-51 lead inside


five minutes and a 60-53
lead with under three min-
utes left.
Then the Bulldogs came
back again. A three with
1:07 left the score tied 60-
all, and three free throws
made it 63-60 Marianna,
with 30.6 seconds left.
A hotly disputed out-of-
bounds call gave Marianna
the ball with 14.7 seconds
left, and the Bulldogs hit a
bucket and two free throws
to seal the win.

game, however the Pirates
were unable to defeat the
Tigers. The Pirates played

BASKETBALL ROUNDUP


PdL girls move forward,

beat Freeport in playoffs


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
The Ponce de Leon Lady
Pirates continued their run
for a state title by beat-
ing Freeport 58-36 in PdL
Thursday night.
The Lady Pirates got off
to a fast start, opening with
a 16-2 run 1fo take a 17-6
,lead after the, first quarter.
The Lady Bulldogs, how-
ever, hung tough with a
much bigger and more ath-
letic PdL team, hitting two
three-pointers to close to
27-18 at the half.
The Lady Bulldogs may
have been outmatched, but
they hustled and worked
hard all night. PdL stretched
their lead to 35-21 with
5:30 left in the third quarter,
but Freeport kept chipping
away and trailed 42-28 after
three.


In the end, the stronger,
deeper team won as the
Lady Pirates took a com-
manding 53-33 lead with
3:00 left and aired it out
the rest of the way to take
the win.
Coach Tim Stafford
yelled for his team to "calm
Down" during the first quar-
-ter,-and.he said that,-"We
were in way too much of a
hurry" early on. "We kept
trying to make extra passes
we didn't need to."
He also praised Freeport
for its scrappy effort. "They
played hard tonight.
"I told them at halftime
that we needed to play bet-
ter defense, and that we left
them open a lot of time."
Maggie Wright led PdL
with 14 points, and Lacey
Griffin and Mary Howes
had 11 each.


Holmes County 57, Walton 35
Brianna Belcher scored 20 points and had 10 steals

Speed, defense key Cottondale victory


JOSH WEINFUSS
Florida Freedom
Newswire
It didn't come easy for
Cottondale in the District
2-2A boys basketball cham-
pionship at Bozeman Satur-
day. Cottondale had to battle
a pro-Ponce de Leon crowd
and overcome a sizeable
foul differential in the first
half. But, a combination of
-speed and defense led the
Hornets to a 60-45 win.
"Our kids were real fo-
cused and played hard,"
Cottondale coach Chris
Obert said.
Both teams advanced to
the Class 2A regional tour-
nament, but Cottondale (11-
14) will get to host the Dis-
trict 1-2A runner-up. Ponce
de Leon (18-8) will travel to
the 1-2A champion.
The Hornets trailed only
once at 3-2. They gained
the lead and held it despite
early foul trouble that put
some of their starters at risk.
Cottondale had 11 first-half
fouls to three for PDL, some
of that the result of the Hor-
nets' fullcourt pressure.
"We had a few kids in
foul trouble," Obert said.
"A lot of kids off the bench
stepped it up more than I
expected."

The Hornets went to a
press in the first quarter and
limited the Pirates' scoring
chances. Ponce de Leon
was held without a field
goal during a four-minute,
36-second span that bridged
the first two quarters.
Just before halftime, Pi-
rates guard Josh Whiddon
converted a three-point
play and hit one of two
free throws from a techni-
cal foul on Cottondale.
The four-point swing cut
Cottondale's lead to 33-23
at halftime. The Hornets
came out looking to put the
game away early in the third
quarter and Kelcey Roulhac
made sure that the Pirates
didn't cut into the lead.
Roulhac scored six points
in the first three minutes
while Cottondale built a 12-
point edge midway through
the quarter. Entering the
final quarter the Hornets led
by 13, and Ponce de Leon
managed only nine points
thereafter.
Kyle Shull led the Pirates

NASCAR 2007


Waltrip has engine problems .


MONTE DUTTON
NASCAR This Week
Setting off a chorus of
"I told you so's," NAS-
CAR officials confiscated a
manifold in the engine used
by Toyota driver Michael
Waltrip before Daytona 500
qualifying.
For Toyota, anxious to
blunt allegations that it
was buying its way into
victory lane, the timing
couldn't have been worse.
Waltrip, who owns a three-
car Toyota team, said the
mysterious substance found
in his car's engine was oil,
but others speculated it was
an oxidizing agent.
"We have taken an in-
take manifold from the No.
55 Nextel Cup car," said
NASCAR competition vice
president Robin Pemberton,
"and we are sending it back
to the R&D Center (in Con-
cord) this evening and do
some tests on it tomorrow.
The inspector caught a sub-
stance inside the manifold.
We didn't really know what
it was. We gave the team an
opportunity to put another
manifold on it, and they'll
go through their normal
inspection process and get
ready for the Duels."
Asked if the substance
was potentially perfor-
mance-enhancing, Pember-
ton said, "We don't know
that, and we aren't going to
speculate on it.
"We're not going to dis-
cuss penalties. We'll evalu-
ate the situation later in the
week. We'll have answers
later in the week."
Waltrip has no automatic
spot in the Daytona 500
field because his team did
not produce a top-35 per-
;formance in the 2006 owner
standings. After replacing
the manifold, he was al-
lowed to qualify.
"We looked at every
manifold that went through
inspection, and that's all
we've found," said Pem-
berton.
NASCAR officials also
impounded Waltrip's Toy-
ota after qualifying and, in
the words of spokesman
Jim Hunter, were planning
to "go over it with a fine-
toothed comb."
No decisions have been
made regarding whether or
not Waltrip would be able
to use the impounded car in
Thursday's qualifying races
or whether he would be al-
lowed to use a back-up.
Keep on keeping on:
One of the major stories


of the 2006 season was the
improvement, perhaps re-
covery is a better word, of
Richard Childress Racing.
Jeff Burton made the
Chase for the first time and
won for the first time since
2001. Kevin Harvick won
the Busch Series champion-
ship and came reasonably
close in the Chase. If Clint
Bowyer improves dramati-
cally in his second season,
Childress could achieve the
rarity of having no discern-
ible weaknesses.
Then again, the operation
could lose its away amid the
vast changes taking place
this year.
Predictably, Burton said,
"I feel real good about it.
"I think if we have the
same car, same engines
and everything going into
this coming year, we will
definitely be a contender,"
he added. "We're no dif-
ferent from any other team
out there. There are a lot of
unknowns, the new Car of
Tomorrow, the new Chevro-
let engine, but I feel that we
are as prepared as any team
out there."
Bowyer, the only RCR
driver who didn't make the
'06 Chase, vowed to do his
part.
"Our goals are to win rac-
es and get in the Chase," he
said. "Bottom line is we've
got the rookie stripe off the
bumper, and now it's time
to get down to business.
No excuses. We're racing
to be in The Chase just like
everybody else. Our perfor-
mance was there last year,
but we struggled to get the
finishes we deserved. We
need to be able to capital-
ize on our performance this
year -and not only win, but
get in the Chase as well."
Disallowed:
Two qualifying runs were
disallowed by NASCAR
officials, who cited aerody-
namic irregularities in Matt
Kenseth's Ford and Kasey
Kahne's Dodge. Both driv-
ers will have to start their
qualifying races at the rear
of the field.
Hunter at least hinted that
fairly serious punishments,
suspensions, loss of points,
etc., might be in order.
"Our inspection process
gets better every day," he
said. "We are committed to
trying to stop all the games
being played. Obviously,
the parties involved are able
to explain it away whatever
way they want, but we are
committed to maintaining


Junior and Childress? Is the possibility of a reunion


getting closer?

the integrity and will do
whatever is necessary to
achieve that."
More pit stops:
The race to be run on
March 11 at Las Vegas
Motor Speedway will still
be 400.5 miles, but it will
take many more pit stops to
complete it.
Pemberton announced
that NASCAR will require
teams to use 13-gallon fuel
tanks because of concerns
arising from the repaving of
the track. The decision came
in response to recent testing
sessions at the track.
"At Las Vegas, we have
decided to go with a 13-
gallon fuel cell," he said.
"After discussing it with
Goodyear, we feel like we
have the potential for some
of the same issues we had
at the Charlotte races last
year, so we have decided for
those reasons to go with the
13-gallon fuel cell.
"The tire will be differ-
ent. They have decided they
are going to change the left-
side compound and maybe
the construction. We made
some test runs out there,
and from that, we've made
a change."
This year the standard
fuel capacity was reduced
from 22 to 18 gallons. Pem-
berton said earlier that the
18-gallon size was a com-
promise between the two
and that there would be no
further need for the 13-gal-
lon tanks, which were also
used in previous seasons in
restrictor-plate races.


"As we go through this
day and age, with the so
many tracks being repaved,
the surface is a bit too abra-
sive to start out, so we
had to adjust accordingly,"
Pemberton said. "Good-
year is doing a good job.
They're a good tire supplier.
Nowadays with the repaves
and things of this nature, it
takes a little while for time
on the race track to get the
tire compound down. The
speeds were higher than
when they tested there the
last time, and they have
to get the abrasiveness
knocked down."
Achilles heel:
Matt Kenseth has won a
championship, been rookie
of the year and made the
Chase in. each of, its. three
years of existence. He has,
however, never come par-
ticularly close to winning
at the Nextel Cup level at
Daytona.
His most recent finish,
fifth in the 2006 Pepsi 400,
was his best. "The Daytona
500 is the biggest race of the
year for so many reasons,"
said Kenseth. "It has the
most buildup, it has the
most prestige, definitely the
most interest, and it pays far
more than any other race.
"We've had our share of
disappointment in this race
over the years, including
last year, which was ex-
tremely frustrating because
I really thought we had a
car good enough to win,
but I always look forward
to coming back. "


Labonte hopes to put Pettys back in victory lane


MONTE DUTTON
NASCAR This Week
Bobby Labonte, who won
the Winston Cup champion-,
ship in 2000, pulled off quite
a surprise before the 2006
season. He moved from
Joe Gibbs Racing to Petty
Enterprises. What was he
thinking?
Though the Pettys have
won more races (268) than
any team in NASCAR his-
tory, the team's most re-
cent victory occurred in
1999. JGR, owned by the
Washington Redskins head
coach and now run by Joe
Gibbs' son J.D., has won
three championships and 37
races (out of a total of 54)
since then.
But Labonte, a year later,
said he doesn't regret the
decision.
"I think there are a lot
of opportunities there for
me for years to come," he
said. "We've just got to race
real hard and make sure we
do the right thing with our
sponsors.
"It's always a challenge,


but I kind of like that chal-
lenge. It's interesting to be a
part of that. I believe we're
headed in the right direc-
tion ? To compete against
Hendrick or Roush or Gibbs
and Evernham, obviously
it's difficult, but I feel like,
toward the end of last year,
we made a big jump, and we
can continue making those
big jumps. I think it was a
cool move for me because
it was a great opportunity to
get back to victory lane."
Labonte made the move
after winless seasons with
Gibbs in 2004 and 2005.
Last year he improved,
albeit modestly, from 24th
to 21st in the Nextel Cup
standings, with eight top-10
finishes as opposed to seven
in 2005.
He hopes it's just the tip
of the iceberg in turning
around Petty Enterprises
with the aid team manager
Robbie Loomis, teammate
Kyle Petty and Richard
Petty himself.
"The next step will be
harder in a lot of ways,"


said Labonte, "but hope-
fully, through the season-
ing of last year with the
understanding of the race
car, maybe it won't come
as hard as you think. I hope
it's not twice as hard to get
to the top 15 as it was to
get to 21.
"There's always room
for improvement wherever
you go. I think the chemis-
try is going to grow between
our relationships and the
crew chiefs' relationships.


I TUI iTT


We could see it already
helping toward the end of
last year because both cars
were better in the last 10
races."

*Lowe's Motor Speed-
way is spending $4 million
to renovate the front-straight
grandstands, replacing con-
crete and aluminum bleach-
ers with stadium-style seats.
The renovation won't get
underway until after the
May 27 Coca-Cola 600.

One can only imagine what Juan Pablo Montoya per-
ceives as he prepares for his first Daytona 500.

Montoya and culture shock:

Welcome to NASCAR


MONTE DUTTON
NASCAR This Week
One.can only imagine
what Juan Pablo Montoya
perceives as he prepares for
his first Daytona 500.
NASCAR's first inter-
national star is arriving at
precisely the time at which
everything else is changing
in NASCAR World, which
wasn't particularly known
for normality in the first
place.
The Neitel Cup Series
has two different incarna-
tions of "a new car."
The first'is Toyota, the
first foreign manufacturer,
that is, unless you count the
MG Smokey Cook drove at
Bowman-Gray Stadium (of
all places) in 1963, or the
Jaguar piloted by Al Keller
to victory at the Linden
(N.J.) Airport in 1954. A
team of Toyotas is going to
'be on the race track' week
after week, and that's a big
change in this sport.
Then there's the Car of
Tomorrow.
Montoya, 31, is getting
his share of attention, that's
for sure, but there are plenty
of locations in the garage
for adoring fans to gather.
James Hylton, 72, is signing
autographs by the dozens
while, nearby, his flamboy-
ant owner, J.C. Weaver,
threatens to raise a tent and
start a revival. The return of
Hylton, however impossible
it may be for him to make
the 500 field, is intensely
popular.
There are the usual pres-
sure points for hysteria.
Women shriek and grow
faint in the presence of
young drivers like Dale
Earnhardt Jr., and Kasey
Kahne, both of whom could
don bellbottoms and turtle-
necks, hire a drummer and
lead guitarist, and become
the Beatles.
It's cool to be foreign,
and it's cool to be old. The
former has never been true
in NASCAR, and for the
latter, it's been a while.
The international travel-
ing spectacle of Formula
One is allegedly compa-


rable to a never-ending
rock opera. There's a lot
more twang in NASCAR,
and it's closer to the Grand
Ole Opry than the Who's
"Tommy." In the Daytona
Fan Zone, a bratwurst sells
for $7. The may be brats -
one hears from time to time
about the "spoiled" variety
-- in Fl, but one seldom
hears about bratwursts, let
alone the famed Martins-
ville hot dogs, being served
on the lawn at Silverstone.
How can a man who's
been in Formula One pos-
sibly be star-struck about
NASCAR? On the surface,
it seems like Sir Edmund
Hillary weeping at the pros-
pect of conquering Chim-
ney Rock.
"The guys here care for
the fans," said Montoya,
"and I don't think that's true
in Formula Qne. It's unbe-
lievable. The fans get to see
the cars. The windows here
(referring to the fan areas
at Daytona where fans can
watch mechanics work on
race cars from close range)
are unbelievable. In the
world I had grown accus-
tomed to, the only way to
see the cars was going by
them at more than 100 miles
an hour.
"The fans here can actu-
ally get close to the drivers,
to the cars, and that's a big
deal. The timing couldn't
be any better. The Car of
Tomorrow is really good for
me. Obviously, one of the
places where I'm going to
be good is the road courses.
Everybody has a new car in
the road courses. That's a
big thing, I think, for me."
Perhaps one day Mon-
toya, reflecting on his years
of stardom in NASCAR,
can sigh, accept his induc-
tion into the Hall of Fame
and tell a hushed, respectful
audience, "NASCAR, you
know, has' been very, very
good to me."

Stewart whistling
a happy tune
During at least one seg-
ment of every season, it
seems as if Tony Stewart
is as crazy as a loon. Con-
versely, there are many
occasions where Stewart
looks as if he could shove
Bernd Rosemeyer out of the
cockpit of his Auto Union
Type C, circa 1938, roar
down pit road and win the
Daytona 500 in it.
One of the reasons this


won't happen is that the
Auto Union won't fit NAS-
CAR's templates, though its
shape may be more stream-
lined than the Car of Tomor-
row.
If a happy Stewart is syn-
onymous with a successful
Stewart, then this could
be Tony's year to win the
Daytona 500. His victory in
Saturday night's Budweiser
Shootout provided further
evidence of the giddy good
humor Steward suddenly
exudes.
The two-time Cup cham-
pion (Winston in 2002,
Nextel in 2005) was chirp-
ing around like a bluebird
during NASCAR's Media
Day last week. Required to
attend the morning session,
Stewart hung around most
of the day complying with
every request, trading quips
and generally acting the
part of a man who actually
enjoyed dealing with the
media.
Usually, in February
Stewart prefers to play the
"just another race" game
during Speedweeks, which
is a way of letting everyone
know it's just the opposite.
He's never been as uptight
at Daytona as he was at
Indianapolis before he won
it in 2005, but there have
been occasions where those
in Stewart's vicinity turned
up the Terror Alert.
Not this year. Stewart's
been spinning old war sto-
ries about A.J. Foyt and
poking fun at himself. He's
lost the scowl.
After the Super Bowl, he
even text-messaged Pey-
ton Manning ("You've got
yours finally; now it's time
for me to get my Super
Bowl").
There"s something mysti-
cal in the air. For Stewart,
it's all lining up.
