Earth Day means a a trip for county students

Staff Writer
Check any expectations at the gate
when touring Springhill Landfill in
Campbellton. Overpowering stench,
nope. Environmental nightmare,
nada. Wildlife habitat? Come on...
Last week, Waste Management,
the company that owns and operates
the landfill, hosted third grade classes
from Kate M. Smith Elementary in an
effort to promote realistic viewpoints
about modern waste management.
Site Manager Jeff Massey said,
"The perception that this is just a
dump couldn't be farther from the
truth. This is a technical, highly en-
gineered site. We are even a certified
wildlife management habitat. We co-
exist with the environment and go to
great lengths to protect it."
On Friday, when children from
Cecelia Grissett and Dee Stanton's
classes were there, alligators, turtles,
birds, a snake and wild irises made
a showing. Tour guides Ralph Fox
and Jenny Gluck led children around
natural and man-made swamps and
even trekked to the top of Springhill
North, a collection area that is capped
and now perfect for outdoor lectures
on landfill procedures.
Fox and Gluck sat in the green
grass with the children as they ex-
plained the layers of a landfill. "As
late as the 1980s, cities used to just
dig a big hole and put everything in
there," Gluck said. "Waste Manage-
ment noticed the dump here was leak-
ing, so they bought the site and put a
liner like a garbage bag under it." She
passed Around inch-think samples of
liner material.
"Now, when we open a cell, we
line the hole with clay, which is
non-porous. Who knows what that
means?" Gluck asked. She went on to

explain leachate. "It's basically gar-
bage juice. Now that rain cannot seep
out of the landfill, because of the liner
and the clay, it collects inside. We
pump it out and filter it back through
again, to help the garbage compact."
She demonstrated the concept using
a spray bottle and tissue paper.
Fox took the lead explaining Waste
Management's gas-to-energy initia-
tive. "When garbage decomposes, it

produces methane. Methane is harm-
ful to people and to the ozone. We
used to flare it off, but now we make
electricity from it," he said. Waste
Management has six pumps that pull
methane off Springhill North.
"The computer measures methane
and oxygen that the pumps pull out
of the landfill," Fox explained. "This

Old county

jail on its

way down

Board approves start of
demolition process
Managing Editor
afelsberg@ chipleypaper.com
The days are numbered for the
old Washington County Jail. The
Washington County Board of County
Commissioners approved beginning
the demolition process at its regular
meeting last week.
The old jail, built in 1932, has
been vacant for seven years and
has deteriorated to the point that it
is no longer possible to restore the
The Washington County Histori-
cal Society also surveyed the build-
ing, but President Dorothy Odom
said the Society also found the build-
ing beyond repair.
"It's a hazard where it's at," said
Board Chairman Jerry Sapp. "It's a
good idea to take it down."
It was decided to save the brick
in case repairs are needed to the
courthouse. The Board approved
developing a demolition plan. Plans
are to possibly erect a marker on
the site.
The Board also found that the
County's paper voting machines will
have to be replaced by end of the
2008 election.
Supervisor of Elections Carol
Finch Griffin said that the vendor
for the aging machines can no longer
provide support.
Even using a statewide discount,
it will cost $5,775 per unit for re-
placement, for a minimum of 19.
The state will provide $1,200 per
machine. The discount is good for
12 months.
The Board will revisit the issue in
a few months.
Washington County Commission-
ers approved proceeding with a study
of the planned extension of Elkcan
Boulevard in the Sunny Hills area
from Hwy. 77 to Hwy. 231 in Bay
and Jackson counties.
County Engineer Cliff Knauer said
the County had received $325,000
from the state Department of Trans-
portation to conduct the study.

Kids Fishing Day

set for May 12
On May 12 Orange Hill Soil and
Water Conservation District along
with local businesses will sponsor
Kids Fishing Day. Fishing will start
at 8 a.m. at a pond on the Campbell-
ton Highway (C273).
Go north through Chipley on
Highway 77 to Campbellton High-
way, turn right, go eight-tenths of a
mile. A sign and the pond will be
on the right.
Kids Fishing Day is for all Wash-
ington County youth 16 years of
age and younger. An adult must
accompany all children who partici-
pate. Hamburgers and drinks will be
served at lunch. There will be prizes
for everyone.
Those who have fishing gear
should take it with them. If someone

Paxton of the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission will
be there to supply fishing poles and
tackle for those who need to borrow
some. Bait will be supplied.

NFWMD gives $500,000 water reuse grant to Chipley

* Holmes Creek water qual-
ity is expected to benefit from
a� $500,000 water reuse grant
approved last week by the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District Gov-
erning Board. The funds,
provided through the state's
Water Protection and Sustain-
ability Program, will help the
City of Chipley construct a
distribution system that will
provide reclaimed water for
irrigating an industrial park,
a� golf course and agricultural
"Not only will this make
water use more efficient and
sustainable," said District
Executive Director Douglas
E. Barr, "it will also reduce
ground water used from irri-

gation and will help eliminate
treated wastewater discharge
to Holmes Creek."
Associated with this work,
Chipley will upgrade its ex-
isting treatment plant to an
advanced wastewater treat-
ment facility, replace sewer
collection lines and develop
a spray field.
The upgrade will receive
additional funding from the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection. The
reuse portion of the project is
expected to be complete by
January 2008 and the facility
upgrade is expected to be on-
line by the end of 2009.
"Holmes Creek is a unique,
spring-fed ecosystem that
supports several rare and

endemic species within the
large Choctawhatchee River
and Bay System, which is a
District priority for Surface
Water Improvement and Man-
agement," said Ron Bartel,
Director of Resource Manage-
ment Division. "By protecting
these natural resources, we
also help maintain our quality
of life."
It is expected that by 2008
reclaimed water will be pro-
vided for irrigation to the
Washington County Indus-
trial Park, Falling Waters
Golf Course and several ag-
ricultural properties. The
city anticipates extending the
system to irrigate other resi-
dential and public use areas
in the-future.

While students ate cook-
ies and drank fruit juice, they
watched videos on recycling
and garbage.
Waste Management oper-
ates a recycling facility in
Ft. Walton Beach, but rural
areas like Washington County,
Gluck explained, have recy-
cling centers where residents
can drop off their recyclables.
Students learned that it takes
just 60 days for a soda can to
go from the recycling center
back to the shelves of the
grocery store.
"The boardwalk we are on
is made of recycled plastic,"
Gluck said, pointing to gray-
toned, wood-simulated planks
underfoot. "Plastic lasts for-
ever, so it's important that we
not just throw it away."
The recycling message
was reinforced by Chuck
Hatcher, director of Jackson
County's Parks, Recreation
and Recycling Department.
He demonstrated the county's
new automatic recycling truck
and noted his department
has seven drop-off locations
throughout the county. He
gave educational materials to
teachers for use in their class-
rooms, also.
Students next visited the

top of Springhill South, the
portion of the landfill open to
receive garbage. Most chil-
dren covered their noses be-
cause, at this location, the air
was putrid.
Gluck explained that Waste
Management, in keeping with
Department of Environmental
Regulations, packs down new-
ly dumped garbage and then
covers it with dirt to contain
odor, assist decomposition and
prevent wind from scattering
Just for fun, Fox set off the
facility's "bird banger," which
makes a loud noise to scare
off congregating seagulls,
buzzards and other scaveng-
ing birds. Students were torn
between covering their ears
or their noses each time he set
the device.
After a picnic lunch gra-
ciously served by Massey's
wife, Delisa, students planted
a pear tree just as their peers
did during visits earlier in the
week. Waste Management
erected a sign in honor of the
new trees, "so you can come
herein 20 years and see the
tree you planted," Fox said.
The shaded, grassy picnic
area is a special project of

who was there to help with the
company-sponsored lunch and
the tree-planting.
As she gathered her stu-
dents together to return to the
bus, Grissett, said, "I've never
been on a field trip like this.
This has really been nice."
Massey hopes this week's
fieldtrips also will help stu-
dents realize that the field
of waste management offers
many career options. "As they
go away to college, we want
them to be aware this is out
here. Waste Management as
a company needs civil engi-
neers, managers, accountants,
sales people and environmen-
tal scientists."
Groups interested in sched-
uling landfill tours are en-
couraged to contact Gluck
at 263-5935. "Tours must be
scheduled a few weeks in ad-
vance," she said. The company
also provides speakers for
meetings, upon request.

Paul making another

run at the White House

The last time Ron Paul ran
for the White House, he came
in third behind George Bush I
and Michael Dukakis.
Not a bad showing for the
Pittsburgh-born medical doc-
tor who has been elected nine
times to the U.S. House of
Representatives since 1978
as a libertarian Republican in
a mostly rural district on the
Texas Gulf Coast.
Unfortunately, when Dr.
Paul ran for president in 1988
it was atop the Libertarian
Party ticket, which is why his
vote total -- 431,750 -- was
about 48.5 million behind
Bush I's.
For the 2008 election, Paul
isn't taking the obscure third-
party route. He's seeking the
Republican nomination and
will be among 10 hopefuls
at the first 2008 GOP debate
Thursday night (May 3),at the
Reagan presidential library
in California, which will be
broadcast by MSNBC and
streamed live on the Internet
by Politico.com.
Paul, 71, is not your typical
modern Republican. "I call
myself a constitutional Repub-
lican," he said recently. "Some
others call me a libertarian
Republican, which is OK, too,
because I believe the Founders
were very libertarian.
"They wanted a very lim-
ited government and they em-
phasized individual liberty. In
many ways to me that's a tra-
ditional Republican, because
there was a time when Repub-
licans stood for smaller gov-
ernment and actually stood for
nonintervention overseas."
Paul is in the race for real.
He's already made trips to
Iowa, Arizona, Nevada and
New Hampshire. His campaign
is plugged into the Internet and
well on its way to raising its
first million.
Most of the eight other an-
nounced Republican presiden-
tial wannabes have lots more
money and name recognition.
But Paul has one big advantage
over all of them: He's pure on
policy and not a flip-flopper.
For his entire career he's
been a consistent exponent of
limited constitutional govern-
ment, low taxes, free markets
and a return to the gold stan-
dard. He's steadfastly been
against the war in Iraq and the
war on drugs.
He voted against the Patriot
Act. And on immigration he's
for strong borders and against
both amnesty and welfare for
illegal aliens. Having deliv-
ered more than 4,000 babies,
he's always been pro-life and



Bill Steigerwald

Paul has faithfully voted
his libertarian principles in
Congress, where he is known
as "Dr. No" for his principled,
often lonely dissents. Don't
blame him for the warfare/
welfare state: As his campaign
-site, ronpaul2008.com, boasts,
he's never voted for a tax raise
or an unbalanced budget and
never voted to restrict gun
ownership, raise congressional
pay or increase the power of
the executive branch.
Sadly, none of his fine qual-
ities matter because, even as a
Republican, Paul is a marginal
candidate with a near-zero shot
of becoming president.
Paul is realistic about his
chances. But he also knows
miracles happen in politics.
Thirty years ago, he was ab-
solutely convinced he could
never become a congressman
running on a platform of maxi-
mum freedom and minimum
"Yet I surprised myself and
won that and then continually
won re-election with bigger
margins, so I'm convinced
the message is very, very
Today's alternative me-
dia make it much easier for
candidates like Paul to get
their esoteric messages out.
But marginal candidates by
definition are trapped in a
cruel Catch-22: Because they
are marginal, they are ignored
by the major media -- so they
stay marginal.
But Paul's been around long
enough to know winning isn't
everything. As he says, "The
goal is to win. If you can't
win, you want to do the very
best that you can and have an
impact." Let's hope he does
on Thursday night on his less
principled fellow Republicans.
They -- and the country - need
to be reminded how far we've
strayed from our core consti-
tutional values.

Senator Barack Obama
emerged as the big winner at
Thursday's first Democratic
presidential debate. It's not so
much that he scored a knock-
out punch, or that he was head
and shoulders above any of the
other candidates. In fact, it's
the opposite.
Obama held his own with
the others, particularly vis-
A-vis his chief rival, Hillary
Clinton. He clearly showed
that he belonged on the stage
with his longer serving rivals.
In doing so, he helped van-
quish his leading negative:
The polls indicate that ex-
perience is Hillary Clinton's
leading virtue in the eyes of
her supporters; her experi-
ence is clearly derivative of
her husband's and has been,
at times, a decidedly mixed
bag. It looks good in contrast
with the Illinois State Senator,
who, with a smattering of time
in the U.S. Senate, is running
for president. Once Obama
overcomes his inexperienced
perception, he'll gain quickly
in the polls, and continue the
surge that has animated his
candidacy ever since 2007
began. The debate also helped
to clear some of the obstacles
in his path.
Hillary's advantage over
Obama is rooted in the experi-
ence issue. But, as Nixon found
out in his debate with John F.
Kennedy in 1960, experience
is a quickly vanishing asset

On Monday, the 200th
wrongly convicted person was
cleared by DNA evidence.
It took 13 years for DNA
evidence to clear the first 100
people wrongly accused; it
took five years to reach the
next 100 exonerations. That
accelerating rate promises
ever more such stories.
There are two ways of look-
ing at this. The first is the obvi-
ous: It is deeply troubling that

in a presidential race. Having
capitalized on his eight-year
tenure as Eisenhower's vice
president, Nixon's slogan was
"experience counts." By the
time his debate with Kennedy
was over, it didn't. The young
senator had shown himself
to be just as alept, equally
well informed and even more
articulate than his more expe-
rienced rival.
So it was with Thursday's
Hillary was her usual well
informed and well prepared
(but perhaps too scripted), and
Obama showed that he was her
equal. In fact, debating with a
distinguished field that includ-

so many people were wrongly
convicted of crimes.
Even after we do every-
thing we can to wring the
system of abuse, there will
still be wrongful convictions.
The criminal justice system is
a human system.
There will always be a mar-
gin of error, and people will be
found guilty who are innocent.
The only way to prevent jail-
ing innocent people is to cease
prosecuting crimes.
That is the way the world

ed his vastly more experienced
elders - Senator Joe Biden,
Senator Chris Dodd, former
Energy Secretary and U.N.
Ambassador Bill Richardson
and Hillary - Obama proved
that he could hold his own.
Hillary's worst moment in
the debate came when she had
to "take responsibility" for
her vote in support of the Iraq
War in 2002. It was not that
she had voted wrong in the
opinion of most Democrats;
it was that she was obviously
refusing to apologize - a
sharp contrast to the honesty
of John Edwards, who asked
those who had joined him in
backing the war to "search
their consciences."
But Hillary's best moment
was when she criticized the
Supreme Court decision up-
holding the Congressional ban
on partial birth abortion. She
clearly demonstrated that, as
the only woman candidate,
the resurrection of the abor-
tion issue would become her
strong suit in the Democratic
primaries to come.
The other beneficiary of the
debate was Dennis (the Men-
ace) Kucinich, who showed
the sharp differences between
his brand of anti-war senti-
ment and that of the other
more moderate candidates (ex-
cept for former Senator Mike
Gravel of Alaska). Kucinich
staked out the far left as his
own and even directly chal-
lenged the other candidates for

is. It cannot be perfect; it will
never be entirely safe from
gross unfairness. All we can
do is try to make amends when
it happens.
While we should do every-
thing we can to prevent mis-
takes, we have to acknowledge
and live with a tiny percent-
age of wrongful convictions
- which is easy to say as long
as we are not the ones to be
wrongly convicted.
The other way to look at
the exonerations from DNA

supporting, in effect, a longer
war. Kucinich's critique will
echo louder when the other
candidates, predictably, cave
in to Bush in voting for a clean
war funding resolution after
the attempt to override his
veto fails. And, after Kucinich
is defeated, his banner will
likely be carried in the general
election b y that b8te noire of
Democrats: Ralph Nader.
This second tier in this
Democratic field is unusually
To have a former National
Committee Chairman (Dodd),
the Chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee
(Biden), and a former U.N.
Ambassador (Richardson) in
the running is unusual and it
gives the field a faster pace.
Since the equal time format
of the debate gave them each
an opportunity to show their
skills to great advantage, we
should expect "other" to rise in
the polls and for the front run-
ning trio of Clinton, Obama
and Edwards to drop down
a bit.
But the central point of
the debate is that Obama
passed his rite of passage and
made the cut. He came.across
as able, spontaneous, above
partisanship and decent. His
virtues shine in contrast to
the perception of Hillary as a
strident partisan and heavily
scripted candidate. This con-
trast was obvious on Thursday

evidence is with pleasure: The
new technology permitted the
exoneration of 200 people
who would never have been
freed without it.
Now that DNA evidence
is available, there will be
hundreds, perhaps thousands
of people who are wrongly
suspected but will never have
to stand trial.
That is something for which
we should be glad.

Students at Washington
County Christian School ben-
efit from the school's an-
nual spring fling in two ways.
They get to enjoy games and
contests for several hours at
Shivers Park on a sunny Sat-
urday morning, and proceeds
from ticket sales (four for $1),
and food booths help purchase
needed items for the school.
The attractions include
bowling, golf, bean bag toss

a ball throw, and a wheel of
fortune-type spinner game.
A plinko board like the one
found on a popular TV show,
also came in for a lot of play.
There was an inflatable castle
for the kids to climb in, and
face painting. Cotton candy
and colorful Icee drinks were
available, along with hot dogs,
Polish dogs, chips and cokes.

tertainment. Students from the
various classes sang or recited
during the intervals.

Although most things were
purchased with tickets, others

PdL falls to Bozeman
Ponce de Leon fell victim
Friday to Bozeman's first
District 2-2A championship in
school history in an 8-6 loss at
Bill Frazier Field.
It didn't come without a
struggle and accompanying
drama, as the Bucks had to
rally from a three-run deficit
and didn't take the lead for
good until the fifth inning.
The Pirates (14-13) roughed
up Bozeman right-hander
Dustin Duncan early, scoring
four runs in the top of the third
inning. Brock Bishop led off
with a single and moved to
second on an errant pickoff
Tyler Brannon walked, and
moved up while Bishop scored
on Jason Stafford's line-drive
single to left.
Ronnie Smith came in to
relieve Duncan for the Bucks,
but the Pirates weren't fin-
ished. Zach Rushing walked
and Caylon Friend scored
Brannon with a sacrifice fly.
PDL pitcher Cody Carroll
then followed with a two-run
double and suddenly the Pi-
rates led 4-1.

"You can't say we didn't hit
the ball well, we battled in that
inning, we almost had it," PDL
coach Josh McGowan said.
In Bozeman's fourth, Car-
roll walked Nick Peterson, hit
Will Humpreys in the ribs and
walked Trey Register to load
the bases.
Bucks catcher Cody Strick-
land cleared them with a
three-run double that tied the
game 4-4.
Bozeman (18-7) took a 5-4
lead in the fifth when Peterson
singled home Duncan, who
had doubled.
Bozeman went ahead 8-4 in
the sixth. Register walked and
scored on a passed ball and
Strickland singled and scored
on a wild pitch. Carroll (2-3)
was replaced by Brannon, who
surrendered a triple to Larry
Chemi that scored Smith, who
had singled.
Smith (7-2) had to with-
stand a PDL rally in the top
of the seventh. Paul Griffin
led off with a walk and Bishop
hit an RBI single that got past
Duncan, now playing center
field, and rolled all the way to
the wall.
After Brannon walked and
Rushing singled, Smith faced
Carroll with two outs. He
hit a 1-2 pitch to deep center
field. The ball held up in the
wind and fell into the glove
of a sprinting Duncan to end
the game.
"I thought I hit it well," Car-
roll said. "I was just up there
trying to make contact."

Bobby Bowden spoke recently about the upcoming FSU
football season.

Bowden looks at upcoming season

Freedom Newspapers
The 2007 college foot-
ball season is over 100 days
away, but that isn't too soon
for Bobby Bowden to talk
about it.
The longtime Florida State
football coach took time re-
cently to stretch his legs fol-
lowing a round of golf at
Panama Country Club in Lynn
Haven, his appearance in con-
junction with the tournament
that bears his name.
Bowden spoke about spring
practice, where the Seminoles
learned new offensive ter-
minology and had to grow
accustomed to new coordi-
nator Jimbo Fisher. Bowden
welcomed five new coaches
into the fold this spring, in-
cluding current and former
FSU assistant Chuck Amato.
Two others, Dexter Carter
and Lawrence Dawsey, are
former players. They joined
new offensive line coach Rick
Trickett on the staff.
"I think everyone came
together real good because we
got more new coaches than
old ones," Bowden said. "We
went out looking for the best
in the country and I think we
have that. We now have an
excellent blend of youth and
Bowden said spring drills
went as planned. There were
no major injuries, and he
said the team shortened the
learning curve for next fall.
"I really thought everyone
improved, which is something
you like to see," Bowden said.
"The kids bought into the new
philosophies and they quickly
learned the new terminology
on offense."
FSU heads into the fall with
many of the same unanswered
questions from last season's
7-6 finish. Neither Drew
Weatherford nor Xavier Lee

distanced themselves from
the other, leaving Bowden
with questions at quarterback.
However, he sees having two
experience quarterbacks as a
"Things haven't changed
there, we still have a battle,"
Bowden said. "You'd hope
that between the two of them
one of them would (find con-
sistency) because you can't
play but one." Bowden said
the fight between Weatherford
and Lee likely will last into
September, perhaps into the
final days heading into the
annual Bowden Bowl against
son Tommy Bowden and
Clemson on Labor Day.
Bowden said next year's
schedule is tougher than in
2006. The Seminoles have just
five home games, compared to
eight last season. They host
Miami, UAB, North Carolina
State, Duke and Maryland.
FSU travels to Colorado,
Wake Forest, Boston College,
Virginia Tech and Florida.
Adding to the difficult
schedule is a neutral site game
in Jacksonville against Ala-
bama on Sept. 29. "I'd much
rather play Middle Tennes-
see," Bowden said. "I'm not
at all thrilled to have to play
"We'll find out what kind
of team we are in a hurry,"
he said.
Entering his 32nd season at
the Seminoles' helm at age 77,
Bowden tempers his expecta-
tions with each approaching
season. He's aware the days of
dominance are gone. But that
doesn't mean FSU still can't
contend for an ACC champi-
onship and beyond.
The glare of the big bowl
games was absent when FSU
played on the West Coast
against UCLA in the Emerald
Bowl. The Seminoles pre-
vailed 44-27.

soring the Orange & Blue Scrimmage at 11:30 a.m. on May

announce continued funding

Ag in the Classroom celebrated in Washington County

Staff Writer
The cafeteria gets milk for
my lunch from the grocery
store. Mom gets my blue jeans
at the outlet mall. Our family
cat uses kitty litter that comes
from, well, the store.
Without intervention, young
people might continue to hold
these true, but not highly ac-
curate, perceptions.
That's where Ag in the
Classroom comes in. More
than 300 fourth graders from
Washington County's public
and private schools gathered
Wednesday, April 25, to learn
where many products we use
everyday really come from.
Andy Andreason, Wash-
ington County's agricultural
agent, said, "This is an agri-
cultural awareness program
to help young people learn
how agriculture impacts our
lives on a daily basis. Eighty
to 90 percent of all jobs are
directly or indirectly related
to agriculture. It helps youth
understand the bigger picture,
that we wouldn't have a lot
of what we have, including
cosmetics, insulin, clothing,
tires, shoes and foodunless
somebody grew it."
Led by their teachers, class-
es from Kate Smith Elemen-
tary, Vernon Elementary and
Washington County Christian
School rotated through six
stations designed to educate
and, in some cases, entertain
Lawrence Watts is a retired
agriculture expert and local
beekeeper. His presentation
included singing "We are busy
little honey bees, we gather
nectar from the flowers and the
trees... We pollinate the fruit
you eat, we bring you honey
oh so sweet..." He showed
pictures of himself wearing
a bee beard, telling students

Mary Paramore/WCN
A hamburger lunch was co-sponsored by the Washington/Holmes Cattleman's Association
and the Washington County Farm Bureau.

"bees are manageable insects
if you know what you are do-
ing." Each student got to taste
honey and got a close look at
an active hive encased in a
plexi-glass and wood frame.
Sherry Saunders, with the
Florida Peanut Producers As-
sociation, showed students
how to make peanut butter
from roasted peanuts and
peanut oil. She told them that
seven percent of the nation's
peanuts are grown in Florida,
and that every part of the plant
has a use. "The vines are used
for cattle feed," she said. "The
shells go into fire logs, mulch
and kitty litter."
Bob Booth and Mike Jones
were on hand from the North-
West Florida Soil and Water
Conservation District. The'
explained that the dirt under-
foot is much more complex
than meets the eye. Using
water and soil samples, they
permitted youth to experi-

ment with the effects of rain
on unprotected, covered and
planted soil. Other stations,
included forestry, horticulture
and beef.
Said Philip Adkison, trea-
surer for both organization,
"Youth are the future of Amer-
ican, why wouldn't someone

want to help them? We'll
do most anything to support
youth and promote agricul-

My mind simply will not
stop thinking of High Hill
Primitive Baptist Church,
Blue Pond Cemetery and
the beautiful Big Blue Pond

The old minutes from High

trigue me. Maybe it is because
I grew up in the Primitive
Baptist Church, also called
Old Baptist, and sometimes
referred to as Hard Shell
The order of their business
conferences is well familiar to
the "prattler."
The old minutes from Beth-
el Primitive Baptist Church
founded May 7, 1887, are
almost identical in form to
those at High Hill.
My grandfather, J.T. Wells,
referred to previously, served
many years as Clerk of the
Church at Bethel.
I had the assignment of
church clerk during my years
as a member of St. Andrew
Primitive Baptist Church in
Panama City. I was clerk
at Bethel after returning to
Washington County and mov-
ing my church membership
back there.
Since Chipley Chapel
Primitive Baptist Church was
constituted almost 15 years
ago, the "prattler" has once
again become clerk of the
The same format for hold-
ing a business meeting seems
to have been consistently used
among Primitive Baptists. An
invitation is extended to visit-

open door for reception of
members. That is the time
to come forward and ask for
membership in the church

Item No. 2 calls for Ac-
knowledgements. Any mem-
ber who feels the need to make
an apology, or amends for
any waywardness, can come
forward, confess his transgres-
sion and ask for forgiveness.
All records of old minutes I've
read seems to reflect a forgiv-
ing spirit among the brothers
and sisters and High Hill
Church is no exception.
Item No. 3 is called Ref-

unfinished business, to be
Item No. 4 is labeled Gos-
pel Dealings. This is when
the church body may "prefer
charges" against an erring
brother or sister and "cite"
them to come before the body

of the violations centered
around non-attendance. Many

The Statistical Table is a variety of interesting information pertaining to churches com-
prising Chipola Primitive Baptist Association as it existed at that time.

ters serving High Hill, the
"prattler" personally recalls
D.J. Parker and J.W. Bush.
Elder D.J. Parker was pastor
at Bethel Primitive Baptist
Church in my early childhood.
He lived in Youngstown and
my dad, Hugh Wells, would
pick him up at his home on
Friday afternoon and drive
him to the home of some
church member in the Bethel
community. He preached at
Bethel on Saturday and Sun-
day and my father delivered
him home on Sunday after-
noon. D.J. Parker is buried in
the Baptist Church cemetery
in Youngstown.
Elder J.W. Bush of Bonifay
was not pastor at Bethel, but
did preach there. He was the
father of several prominent
business and school leaders
in Holmes County, including
Ira C. Bush, John M. Bush,
Myrtle Bush Young, Edna
Mae Bush Brock and Minnie
Later minutes at High Hill
refer to A.D. Varnum as an
The old church records of
High Hill Primitive Baptist
Church follow the pattern of
other historic churches, in
failing to report any related
happening in the community.
World War I was fought
during the existence of High
Hill Church. No reference was
ever made to the war. Nothing
was mentioned about econom-
ic times, schools of the area,
nor any community functions
such as sacred Harp sings,
which were commonly held
in Primitive Baptist Church
meeting houses.
There were no reports of
deaths of members, funerals
or calamities such as torna-
does, murders or accidents
which we know are part of the
history of the area. During my
school days at Vernon High
School, I came to know the
Varnum family. I recall Ken-
nith, J.R., Wilburn and their
younger sister, Annice, who
was in the 1950 graduating
class with my brother, Clyde.
I don't recall knowing Wil-
lis I. Varnum personally, but
he was a Gold Star Soldier
from World War II, having
been wounded in action Aug.
2, 1942, while serving in
France. He died Aug. 4,1942.
There may have been others
from the area who also lost
their life in combat.

family upon our moving to

I knew many other students
from the Greenhead area while

don Mercer drove a school bus
to Vernon in the late 1930s. It
was the smallest in the fleet
of busses. It was dubbed "the
chicken coop" by those who
rode the vehicle.
Hosea Varnum also drove
a bus bringing students from
that south end of the county to

Vernon's earliest barbers and
he also served as Tax Collec-
tor of Washington County in
later years.

Fourty-Fourth Annual Session

Betty Davis is a social worker that founded Big Bend Ghost
Trackers and now serves as its director. She gave a descrip-
tion of the tools for ghost hunting.

The daylong workshop included speakers, a walking tour of

Ghost hunters come to Washington County

Staff Writer
Conventional wisdom says
to avoid politics and religion
when meeting someone new.
Perhaps ghost-huntingshould
be added to that list. Some
people are believers, others
are skeptics, and quite a few
scoff at the idea.
Saturday's ghost-hunting
workshop sponsored by the
Washington County Histori-
cal Society was filled with
believers. About 20 of them
gathered at the Gingerbread
House in Chipley to learn
how to investigate suspected
hauntings and to set them-
selves up for success when
attempting to collect evidence
of an afterlife.
The Society brought in
experts from Big Bend Ghost
Trackers, which operates
throughout north Florida from
its headquarters in Tallahas-
The daylong workshop
included speakers, a walking
tour of downtown Chipley
and a visit to a local cemetery

to attempt to recreate the
group's ghost photography
techniques. A lecture by histo-
rian Dale Cox was cancelled,
however, due to his delay out
of state.
Betty Davis is a social
worker that founded Big
Bend Ghost Trackers and now
serves as its director. She indi-
cated the common courtesies
we extend to people on "this
side" should also be extended
to people on the "other side".
Among Davis' etiquette for
ghost-hunting are:
*No horseplay. "Be pro-
fessional, as if you are in
someone's home, because
you are."
*Ask permission to photo-
graph or audio-record them.
"We don't like to have our
picture taken without permis-
sion, either."
*Do not show fear. "The
last thing they want to do is
scare you."
*Be aware of generational
differences. "In a really old
cemetery, there will be people
who still think a photograph
can steal your soul. It used to

be that bulbs would explode
when pictures were taken, so
getting your picture taken was
an act of bravery.
"New things are foreign to
them, so use language from
their era."
*Never dare a ghost. "Kind-
ly ask them to do what you
want them to, like sit in a chair
to be photographed."
*Do research about a site's
history so you can personalize
your requests, if possible. "If
you can speak to them with
intelligence, they are more
likely to show themselves to
Some practical advice in-
cluded in her tips: No tres-
passing, never go alone, take
a cell phone, do not take a gun,
no smoking or drinking, take

Big Bend Ghost Trackers
will be conducting 15-stop
Ghost Tour during the Mon-

we have personally investi-
gated," Davis said.
"We will share our experi-
ences and the homeowners
and business owners will share
their experiences. We will go
to the mayor's home and State
Rep. Allan Bense has a home

A father and son set up to try their hand at worm fiddling. Worm fiddling consists of driving a wooden peg into the ground and rubbing an object
across the top to cause vibration. In theory, the vibration brings to worms to the surface of the ground.

It's Worm Fiddlin' time again

Managing Editor
Caryville's Worm Fiddlin" Festival
"will be Saturday, May 5, at Caryville
Town Hall. In recent years the event
was held at the Civic Center, but this
year it will be on Hwy. 90
Gates will open at 8 a.m., with

According to a history provided by
the festival committee, in 1970 Frank
and Ed Pericola developed property at
the campsites off the Choctawhatchee
River and Hwy. 179. They organized
a worm fiddlin' event as one of their
projects to draw attention from po-
tential buyers. Appearances in Mad
Magazine, Grit, Outdoor Life and
Trailer Travel Magazine spread news
of the event.
After the lots were sold at the
campsite the Pericolas discontinued
the event, and the Town of Caryville
took over the Worm Fiddlin' Festival
in 1976.
The event proved to be popular
and was well attended, but when three
major floods hit the town in the 1990s

'Guys and Dolls'
Sky Masterson promised 12 good sinners to Sarah Brown's revival, and 12 he delivered. Here Nicely-Nicely Johnson
(Aven Pitts) delivered some testimony during 'Guys and Dolls," Damon Runyon's musical set on the streets of New
York. 'Guys and Dolls' is about, well, guys and dolls. It's about the long, long, long courtship (lower left) of Miss Ad-
elaide (Cheyenne Whitaker) and Nathan Detroit (Jered Holt). It's about Nathan's hunt for a place for a crap game.
And, it's about the surprising romance between Sarah Brown (Sarah Lovins) and Sky Masterson (Ben Grande).
The musical was performed by the Chipley High School Drama Club and was directed by Luwana Locke.

VHS JROTC at Relay for Life

the Vernon High School JROTC participated
in the Relay for Life walk at the old Chipley

ceremony at the track for the survivors attend-
ing the event as they led the first lap around.
They later enjoyed a dinner of steak, yellow
rice, potato salad, coleslaw, and chips. Later
on in the night, the teams started competing in
games for Spirit Points.
The leaders ask the teams' questions per-
taining to cancer, Relay for Life, and the
American Cancer Society. Also, the JROTC
participated in the game "Chubby Bunny." In
this game, one member of each team would
put a marshmallow in their mouth, then would
have to say "Chubby Bunny" and would have
to continue putting marshmallows in until
they cannot say "Chubby Bunny." Cadets

Alex Anderson and Chris Patton participated
in this game.
Afterwards, a female impersonator game
took place. One member of each team would
have to dress as a female, and then proceed
to collect money for Relay for Life. Phillip
Thompson raised $43.
Finally they participated in a cardboard
limo race. The teams were given an hour to
construct a limo using a cardboard box and
supplies the teams brought. One member of
the team was picked to race it around the
track. Cadet Tony Meadows won this race for
the JROTC.
The VHS JROTC collected $863 for the
Relay. The following cadets helped with the
Relay: Ashley Smith, William Landells, Ben-
jamin Keown, Tony Meadows, Chris Patton,
Phillip Thompson, Alex Anderson, Amanda
Madore, Hilirie Newell, and Tonya Kirkland.

Dedication service for Pine Park Church

On Friday, May 4, at 10:00
a.m., The Baptist College of
Florida (BCF) in Gracev-
ille, will be dedicating the
Pine Park Church building
at its new home in historic
Heritage Village. The most
recent addition to the re-
stored churches and homes in
Heritage Village, the Grady
County, Georgia, landmark
was relocated through the
generosity of the Ward and
Lewis families.
Built in 1898, the Pine
Park building located east of
Cairo on Hwy 84 has served
as a church, a 4-H clubhouse,
and the home of the Pine Park
Community Center. Restored
to its rich beauty, the Pine
Park Church will be used as
a preaching lab for BCF stu-
dents studying and preparing
for areas of ministry.
The dedication service will
include a time of recognition
and appreciation as well as an
old fashioned dinner on the
grounds immediately follow-
ing the ceremony.

contact the President's Office
at 800-328-2660 ext. 446.

Are children accountable?

Ecclesiastes 12:1 says this,
"Remember thy Creator in
the days of thy youth?.." We
as parents must teach this to
our children if we expect to
train them up to follow God
with all of their heart. If we
don't, do that ourselves, then
we can't blame our offspring.
That tells me, the Lord ex-
pects the children to be obe-
dient to their parents, as well
as to Him. He did not say
to wait until they are almost
grown to teach them. If we
do, then we parents will an-
swer to God for it. When you
stand before God on Judg-
ment Day, parents, you will
stand there to give an account
to God, for the way you have
taught the children. He does
not expect the children to be
telling the parents what to do
or how to do. After you teach
them the right way, then they
are definitely accountable to
The age of accountability
is different with some of our
children, because some chil-
dren learn and understand
things at different ages. We
cannot set an age, say twelve
years old, and expect every
child to know and understand
all things at this age, it de-
pends on the child.
Let me give you an exam-
ple. We have two sons who
understood things differ-
ently. Most of our older son's
school years, he would wake
up with a tummy ache, a
head ache, a toe ache or some
other excuse to stay at home,
away from school. Does that
sound familiar to any of you?



Helen Hodge

Of course I came to realize
over time, that he simply
did not want to go to school,
even though we told him he
had to go anyway. I guess it
sounded heartless to him but
I began telling him, "You can
hurt at school, just as good as
you can at home. Thank the
Lord, he finally graduated.
His younger brother started
the same thing when he was
in the second or third grade. I
thought, "oh no, it's happen-
ing again!" Then after a cou-
ple of years, he went off to
summer camp at a Church Of
God, youth camp. While he
was there he gave his heart to
the Lord, Praise God! When
he returned home, he told me;
"Mom, I'm not going to give
you a hard time about go-
ing to school, any more." He

never did again, thank God,
and he went on to graduated
from high school also. I be-
lieve the difference in the two
brothers, was that the young-
er one dedicated himself to
God at an early age. Thank
God, over time, all three of
our children began to serve
God with all their heart and
they still do, teaching their
children and their grandchil-
dren, about God also. That is
the way it works.
It is a faith that is passed
down, down, down to our
children, if we want them to
remember their Creator in
the days of their youth! Many
times, children are never takes
to God's House and taught
His Word, and nine times out
of 10, they never serve God
nor teach their children to. If
they don't wake up and be-
gin to set the right example
ahead of them, then they and
their children will end up in
hell, with the devil and his
angels; never to know God
and His love! I hope and pray
that anyone who reads this
will turn to God with all their
heart. Parents, we are surely
accountable to God, if our
children make Heaven their
home or not. We are account-
able, either way. Would you
rather have pain and sorrow
in hell, for eternity; or joy,
peace, and happiness forever
with God in Heaven?
We know if a child should
die before his age of account-
ability, God would take that
child home with Him. How-
ever, if you don't know the
age of accountability, what

then would be their destina-
tion of the child in that same
circumstance? It is too impor-
tant to take a chance, isn't it?
Care enough parents, to teach
them what the Word of God
says.I hope and pray in Jesus
Name that you begin to fol-
low His Word closer than ever
and by all means teach these
truths faithfully. Remember,
Jesus paid the supreme sacri-
fice for us; let's not let Him,
nor our children down. We
are accountable too.

National Day of

Prayer Thursday
Madelyn O'Hare thought
she took prayer out of schools,
and the ACLU continues
to tell us that a country that
was settled by followers of
Jesus Christ who fought for
the right of all to worship as
they best see fit, is no longer
allowed to pray in the name
of Jesus Christ in schools or
at school related activities.
Nor to have crosses on Fed-
eral land that many godly sol-
diers have given their lives to
defend, and they tell us that
we can no longer display the
Ten Commandments on Fed-
eral or State land in this great
country where the laws of the
land that have made it so great
were founded upon these Ten
great Commandments which
lead us to know right from
While it seems acceptable
and politically correct for in-
dividuals to pray at national
ceremonies in the name of
Buddha, Dalai Lama, and
Allah, Christians have and
will always give reverence in
these times to these prayers,
because this is what we have
fought for and defended for
over two-hundred years.
But why is it not politically
correct for that same honor
and reverence to be given to
Christians to pray in the name
of Jesus Christ? Why in this
great land can Muslims stop
during a school or work day,
interrupt what may be taking
place to pray to Allah fives
times a day, yet if a Chris-
tian requests to have half of
a day off on Sunday (one day
a week) so they may wor-
ship, that they are told that
they may lose their job and/or
probably will not be hired by
most of the large retail outlets
across this land.
A note to my fellow Chris-
tians, if we did not support
these places that work people
on the Lord's Day, Sunday,
and if we did not purchase
their goods on that day of
the week, Sunday, then we
would not have this problem,
because they would have no
reason to be open.
Say what you may, there is
not a power strong enough in
this land or any other land to
stop people from praying to
the One and only, Lord and
Savior, Jesus Christ. Because
when we need strength and
help, no matter what the law
of the land may be, we know
there is only One Who is not
in the grave and has the power
to answer our prayers.
Though I'm sure, even
though it may not have been
lawful, prayers had taken
place at Virginia Tech, in the
dorms before April 16; But
we now know that it also
took place in the class rooms
on April 16, as it did in the
classrooms at Columbine and
across this nation on 9-11
and at other times when evil
raised its ugly head in defi-
ance of that which is good.

From the


Tim Hall

But I praise the Lord that
it is not only during times of
turmoil and destruction that
Americans pray. I believe
there are millions who not
only lift their voices in prayer,
praise and adoration to our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
on a daily basis and have such
a love and appreciation for
Who He is that they gather on
Sunday and Wednesday to
join with others of like faith
to glorify His name.
And for the 56th year in
a row will gather again on
Court Houses and City Halls
steps and in parks through
out this great land, Thursday
May 3 for the National Day
of Prayer and unite publicly
across this land, not in pro-
test as many do for things that
are ungodly and immoral, but
praying for our political lead-
ers, policy makers and mili-
tary, while praising the Lord
for the way He has blessed
America, believing that one
day America will once again
bless Him.
The theme of National Day
of Prayer this year is "Amer-
ica, Unite In Prayer" using II
Chronicles 7:14 as our direc-
tive to pray, which says, "If
my people, which are called
by my name, shall humble
themselves, and pray, and
seek my face, and turn from
their wicked ways; then will
I hear from heaven, and will
forgive their sin, and will heal
their land" (KJV).
If you are interested in
places and times where you
can join with the family of
our living Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ to pray, check
online at "www.nationalday-
ofprayer.org" or contact your
local church.
This year as in the past six
the Chipley Ministerial As-
sociation invites everyone to
join with local pastors and
lay people as we pray for our
national, state and local lead-
ers along with praying for our
military, churches and fami-
lies on the steps of the Wash-
ington County Courthouse at
12:15pm, till about 12:45.

BCF performs in Panama City
On Sunday night, April 23, The Baptist College of Florida's (BCF) Music Department pre-
sented a concert at the First Baptist Church of Panama City, Florida. Performing a variety of
musical selections with multiple styles and ranges, the Jazz Band, Male Chorale, Guitar Pro-
fessor Emily Jones, Pianist Tanya Hobbie, and the College Choir led in a night of praise and
The Jazz Band, led by Professor Ron Branning, began the concert with three songs from
their extensive repertoire. Then the BCF College Choir, led by Music Division Chair Don
Odom was introduced and launched the collective segment of the concert. Central to the mix
was the Male Chorale who recently returned from their Canadian tour.- Then the attention
moved to Professor Jones, guitar professor at BCF. With perfect precision, she played the
mandolin and guitar for the congregation.
The listeners were then completely overwhelmed as Tanya Hobbie, BCF pianist played her
rendition of "Majesty." The Male Chorale sang one final song that brought the crowd up and
out of their seats in excitement and praise. According to'those attending, the performance was
one that will be remembered for years to come. It was not only an opportunity to worship
together but to experience the tremendous skill and talent of the faculty and students at The

Be Happy With Your Life
If I could impart one bit of advice to anyone about life, it is this: be
happy with where you are and with what you are doing at the present
time. Life is so fleeting, and it does not make us; we make it! Sometimes
it takes many years to come to the total realization of what is truly
important in one's life, and to be genuinely happy. However, we should
all live each day knowing that this is the best time of our existence; not
yesterday nor tomorrow, but right now. And, I don't mean to say that
we should not look forward to tomorrow, or that we did not learn from
/ yesterday, but we should get up each day and
- realize that this is the day that the Lord has
made. Today is our day, and it is up to each
of us to make the best of it! And although we
should not mind help from those around us
to make our lives more pleasant and content,
we should not depend solely on others to
/ | make us happy in lieu of our own efforts, and
perhaps more importantly, our own outlook.
Life is not always easy, but perhaps it should
/ not always be easy. If we have a good day,
I we should thank God, and realize that more
often, it is we who help to make it that way,
and if it is a bad day, we are to blame for that as well.
The Lord has done great things for us,and we are filled with joy.
New International Version Psalm 126:3
