Christopher Powers


Bonifay man

charged with


felony sex

offenses

TONY BRIDGES
Florida Freedom Newswire
Authorities in two counties are
investigating a Bonifay man ac-
cused of molesting teenage boys
he met after befriending their
families.
Christopher Stephen Powers,
45, is being held in the Bay County'
Jail with bail set at $100,000. He is
charged with one count of capital
sexual battery, and a second charge
is pending.
Investigators believe there may
be other victims.
"We're still trying to get the
pattern established," said Lt. Chris
Wells with the Holmes County
Sheriff's Office.
Wells said a 14-year-old boy
reported Saturday that Powers had
been molesting him for an extended
period. Powers had known the
boy's family for nearly .four years
and was a trusted friend, Wells
said.
"It was just weighing on (the
victim's) mind," he said. "He real-
ized that what was happening was
not right, that he was being taken
advantage of."
Wells said Powers has a home
in Bonifay and another in the 8300
block of Lydia Lane in Panama City
Beach. He was arrested Sunday at
the beach home. A search of both
addresses turned up evidence, but
Wells could not provide details.
Investigators also are waiting
on a second warrant for Powers,
based on allegations from another
14-year-old boy. Powers is a friend
of that boy's family as well, Wells
said.
Wells said it is possible that
Powers also may have met boys
at the Church of God of Prophecy
in Bonfifay, where he was set to
become a youth minister before
his arrest.
However, Pastor Bobby Tinsley
said Powers had no position in
the church and wasn't an official
member. He said Powers had been
attending services for about a year,
helped with the music department
and attended youth activities night
on Thursday. Those activities
always are supervised by church
members, he said.
Anyone with information is
asked to call the Holmes County
Sheriff's Office at 850-547-3681
or the Bay County Sheriff's Office
at 850-747-4700.

Money and drugs were recently seized by the Washington County Sheriff's Office.



Cocaine and over $3,000 seized


"It was another successful night
for Washington County Sheriff's
Office patrol deputies when a
traffic stop led to the recovery of
both powder cocaine and a large
amount of cash from a vehicle
traveling from the Destin area to
Tallahassee," said Sheriff Bobby
Haddock. Information on the case
was provided in a press release
from WCSO.
When the vehicle was pulled
over in the early hours of Thurs-
day, June 14, neither the driver nor
the passenger had valid a driver's
license. The vehicle also displayed
a Georgia tag riot registered to any-
one in the vehicle. After question-
ing the occupants of the vehicle,
officers noticed both the driver and
passenger were extremely nervous
and had conflicting answers in ref-
erence to where they were ,travel-
ing from and their destination.
Deputies requested and were

given permission to search the
vehicle and a K-9 team was also
brought to the scene to search the


vehicle and surrounding area.
A quantity of cocaine and over
$3,000 in cash was found con-
cealed in secret compartments in
the vehicle.
The driver, Sidney Reynard
Antrobus, a 24-year-old black male
from Tallahassee, was charged
with possession of cocaine with
intent to distribute and driving
while license was suspended. An-
trobus was then transported to the
Washington County Jail..
"While we are tirelessly trying
to rid our community of drug deal-
ers who set up shop here, we have
an equally large issue with those
who use Washington County as a
route in which to transport drugs
to our sister counties," said Had-
dock. "This county is growing by
leaps and bounds every day and
we will not allow our community
to become a thoroughfare for drug
dealers."

State tax cut would hit most next year


MARY D. PARAMORE
Staff Writer
mparamore@chipleypaper.com
Florida's property tax cut
will be just three percent this
year, but both Holmes and
- . Washington County property
- "appraisers predict the impact
of next year's tax cut could
be more substantial.
"Three percent is not
much, it is, but it's not," said
Washington County Property
Appraiser Gil Carter. "It will
force some taxing authorities
to receive no more revenue
than last year, minus three
percent. The end result may
be a roll back in the millage
rate." Local property taxing
authorities are Washington
County, the Washington
County School Board and
the cities of Chipley and Ver-
non. In Holmes County, the
county and the school board
assess property taxes.
Regarding future cuts,
Carter said, "I think the big
cuts will be next year. It will
be interesting to see how
the super exemption they're


talking about gets on the bal-
lot next year."
Holmes County's property
appraiser agreed. "We're fine
this year," said Otis Corbin.
"Probably every county will
be impacted next year. It's a
pretty complicated issue on
the ballot."
Carter and Corbin were
referring to a state consti-
tutional amendment that
will appear on the Jan. 29
presidential primary ballot.
Voters will decide on a con-
stitutional change that would
keep current tax levels or
change to a new plan that
would exempt 75 percent
of a home's value up to
$200,000 and 15 percent of
the next $300,000.
To pass, 60 percent of
Floridians must vote to ap-
prove the amendment. Op-
position is expected to be
heavy from law enforcement
and educational lobbies,
whose budgets rely heavily
on local property tax assess-
ments.
Meanwhile, Gov. Charlie


Crist is touting this year's tax
cut as the largest in Florida
history. "This is the people's
tax cut and the power to
further cut taxes is now in
their hands," Crist said. "On
January 29, the people will
have the power to cut their
taxes in a historic way."
Carter said he would have
more specific information
about how the tax cut will
impact counties after next
week's post-legislative ses-
sion property appraisers'
conference.
If the super homestead
exemption is implement-
ed, 75 percent of the first
$200,000 of a home's value
would be exempt from prop-
erty tax. An additional 15
percent is provided for the
next $300,000 in value.
Homeowners who would
save more by staying with
existing Save Our Homes
protections could opt out of
the super homestead exemp-
tion. There are also provi-
sions to help low-income
elderly homeowners.

ond highest county, which

dren in Washington County,

Changes coming your way in

the way we report new*
JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
afelsberg @ chipleypaper.com
In case you've noticed, our papers have changed a bit in
recent months since we were purchased by Freedom Com-
munications. Our website has changed even more.
The reason for the latter is Freedom's emphasis on what
is called interactive, i.e., communication throughout our
community. This means a change in many ways from how
newspapers, and even websites, report the news. We will
continue to provide a quality newspaper, and we will greatly
expand our online services.
The website features breaking news, photo galleries, and
even videos, none of which were featured before the Free-
dom purchase in January. That means more news than ever
gets to the reader, whether online or in print.
You can find the following at either www.chipleypaper.
com or bonifaynow.com:
*Under news you can find local news, obituaries, photo
galleries and videos.
*Under sports you will find local and national sports.
*Opinion includes editorials and letters to the editor.
*Marketplace includes cars, homes, jobs, Yellow Pages
and shopping.
*Entertainment includes a dining guide, local artists,
events, movie theaters and nightlife as provided by our sister
site, emeraldcoast.com.
*Florida Freedom is your link to our other Florida sites,
including the Panama City News-Herald, the Northwest
Florida Daily News, the Crestview News-Bulletin, the Santa
Rosa Press-Gazette, the Port St. Joe Star, the Appalachicola
Times, the Destin Sun and the Walton Log.
*Community Calendar includes the traditional community
calendar, community news and ministry news.
We will add blogs shortly. Another exciting feature is a
service that will offer you the chance to submit announce-
ments for events that go directly online. More on this feature
in the next several weeks.
We look forward to continuing to serve you.


Colin Powell on Gitmo
In a wide-ranging discussion Sunday on "Meet the Press,"
former secretary of state (and former chairman of the joint
chiefs of staff) Colin Powell said he would close the prison
at Guantanamo Bay "this afternoon" and suggested strongly
that President Bush's claim that he relies on commanders in
the field is highly questionable.
This wouldn't be a bad time to listen to Mr. Powell, es-
pecially in light of the decision last week by two military
judges to dismiss cases against two Guantanamo detainees
on the grounds that the administration had not shown that
they were unlawful enemy combatants and therefore they
lacked jurisdiction to try them under the Military Commis-
sions Act.
We may be seeing something like a revolt - though that
may be too strong a word - by long-term military profes-
sionals against the improvisations, some of dubious legal
validity, that the administration has engaged in to fight the
"war on terror."
To be sure, the attacks of 9/11 and what we have since
discovered about al-Qaida and other militant Islamists have
confronted the country with unfamiliar challenges, and
a certain amount of stretching the limits in response was
understandable. ,
As it has become clear that extraordinary measures like
keeping prisoners locked up indefinitely at Guantanamo may
have undermined our image and mission, however, increas-
ing numbers of Americans have become convinced that
this country does best, even in extraordinary circumstance,
when it respects its highest traditions of the rule of law and
adherence to constitutional processes.
Secretary Powell said.that "essentially, we have shaken
the belief that the world had in America's justice system by
keeping a place like Guantanamo open and creating things
like a military commission." He would not let those prisoners
go, but put them on trial in "our more federal justice system,"
with the right of habeas corpus and access to lawyers. "Isn't
that what our system is all about?" he asked.
Colin Powell's words deserve serious consideration as
America struggles with the difficult task of coping with ter-
rorism while remaining true to its highest ideals.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the editor,
I was surprised at the June 11 Holmes County Commis-
sion meeting. There was a proposal that a lady be transferred
from one office to another with a 50 cents an hour raise.
The commissioners questioned the administrator closely
with relevant questions. There were then some deliberations
between commissioners and finally a split vote, 3 to 2.
It would have been nice if the commissioners would
have shown as much interest in our property rights before
they unanimously voted to give them away to the so-called
planners in Pensacola and Tallahassee.
But don't worry, be happy. Fifty cents is still fifty cents.
Right?

Going down with the


The S.S. GOP is sinking
fast, and it looks like Skip-
per Bush is going down with
his ship.
That's only fair- after all,
he's the one who torpedoed
his own ship with the immi-
gration-reform-bill warhead.
Not fair is the fact that he's
taking his party down with
him.
I can understand his stub-
bornness in sticking with this
insane program that doesn't
do a damned thing to plug
the leaking borders that are
allowing the United States to
be flooded with all manner
and shapes of illegal aliens,
some of them terrorists who
want to kill large numbers
of Americans - he really has
nothing to lose.
In less than 18 months
he'll be history - one of
those curiosities who at one
moment wielded the vast
powers of the presidency
and the next found them-
selves with all the other John
Q. Citizens.
That's not, true of the
senators who stand on the
bridge with him as the water
rises up toward the quarter
deck where they can either
jump into the life boats and
survive, or go down with
the ship.
I'm amazed at how many
of them appear to be choos-
ing a watery grave. After all,
it should be more than obvi-
ous that standing firm behind
this monstrosity of a bill car-
ries with it the death penalty
- it's just plain suicidal.
He might not yet fully
realize it, but Sen. John Mc-
Cain has suddenly gone from
being a serious candidate for
the presidency to that of
being a politician with no
political future at all. And I
can't imagine how Senator
Lindsay Graham could ever
imagine that his strong advo-

cacy of a bill that in the blink
of an eye turns lawbreakers,
some of the most serious
kind, into instant legal im-
migrants could be helpful
to his political future. Ditto
John Kyl and the others.
If it weren't so serious, it
would leave us laughing at
the spectacle we saw when
the president went up to
Capitol Hill Tuesday to try
to revive the bill.
It wasn't serious politics,
it was a joke.'
Did he really, seriously
think that Harry Reid was
going to be his friend and
help patch the sinking GOP
hull?
Here you have a president
with a dismal 30-something-
percent approval rating rub-
bing elbows with a group
- Congress -- that has 'a
more-dismal 27 percent ap-
proval rating being led by
a guy with a horrendous 19
percent approval rating. It
doesn't get more comedic
than that.
These people are living in


a dream world, and one that
has not yet been shattered by
the incredible backlash from
Americans outraged to see
their national sovereignty
imperiled and determined
to keep the bill from ever
becoming law.
The message is loud and
clear: kill the damned thing
or get ready to pack your
bags and head for home be-
cause your political career is
all but over.
To continue to push for
passage indicates that the
backers are either stupid,
or arrogant and determined
to impose their wills on the
nation whether the people
like it or not.
When this bill emerged
from the back room where
it was crafted in secret by
the likes of Teddy Kennedy,
Rush Limbaugh took one
look at it and renamed it the
"Comprehensive Destroy
the Republican Party Bill."
No matter how many
Democrat senators back the
bill in a Senate they control,


ship

Republicans will take the
blame for it. Unless the GOP
roars back and in one voice
makes it clear that their
president does not speak for
them on this issue, and goes
all-out to kill'it, 2008 is go-
ing to be a sorry time for all
Republicans.
The late Sam Francis
must be grinning up there in
paradise as he watches the
GOP prove once again that
it is what he called it "the
Stupid Party."
After all, stupid is what
stupid does. And when stu-
pid defies the will of the
American people, stupid
goes under.

Monday night.



Back on the beat in Bonifay


Chief, assistant
chief no longer
suspended

JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor

Bonifay City Council re-
versed a decision by Mayor
Fred Howell on Wednesday
and returned Police Chief
Ronnie Bennett and Assis-
tant Chief Joe Sallas to duty.
Action was taken at a special
Council meeting Monday
night at Bonifay City Hall.
Council's action followed
considerable and at times
loud debate between the
two officers, Council and
the mayor. Council members
also made a motion and a
second to have Howell in-
vestigated or suspended,
but City Attorney Brandon
Young convinced them to
table the motion until he
could look into how such
an investigation would be
conducted.
Sallas told Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment investigators earlier
this year that he falsified
training records for Ben-
nett and Officer Steven Lee
so they could keep their
law enforcement certifica-
tion, investigators reported.
This led to Bennett and
Sallas being suspended last
Wednesday by the mayor.


Sallas maintains that neither
Bennett or his wife, Police
Department secretary Mary
Sallas (who maintains train-
ing records) knew he falsi-
fied the records.
Sallas said he still took re-
sponsibility for his actions.
"Do what you want to me
and get it over with," Sallas
said.
Councilman Richard
Woodham called the meet-
ing to "get the department
fixed." Woodham noted there
were only three full-time of-
ficers available. "The sooner
we get it solved the better,"
Woodham said.
Sallas' attorney, Greg Wil-
son, told Council that unless
Sallas was treated according
to state statute he would file
an injunction on his client's
behalf the next morning. He
said that Howell's action
was unlawful and should
have included notice that
Sallas was to be suspended,
that an investigation was to
be conducted, and that Sal-
las be able to address the
charges before final action.
Howell countered that he
could suspend Sallas as long
as his pay and benefits were
not affected.
The City charter covers
Bennett. He is an administra-
tive officer serving under the
mayor. Bennett maintained
that Howell told him that
"he read the paper" and sus-
pended him.
Both officers met with


the mayor Wednesday and
agreed to stay out with pay
until the entire Council could
meet on the issue.
The meeting got quite
heated at times, an occasion-
al feature of Bonifay Council
meetings since Howell's
election. Citizens and family
members of the two officers
argued with Howell, with
the word "liar" being tossed
about by both sides. Howell
was also accused of violat-
ing the state Sunshine Law
by one citizen, a charge the
mayor has leveled against
Council members.
"It seems to me that half
of Bonifay wants selective
law enforcement," Howell
said. "It's my responsibility
to ensure that there is no se-
lective law enforcement."
"If this is true, the mayor
did break the law when he
suspended these police-
men until the investigation
was over," Woodham said.
However, Young convinced
Council to hold off on action
against the mayor.
At one point Council
and the mayor began hash-
ing over an earlier meeting
where there was a question
of the propriety of a dona-
tion to the local ministerial
association. Bennett then
swirled agendas about and
demanded that Council re-
turn to the agenda, which
only included the police
issue. Council eventually
did so.

Ebro to embrace new poker limits
PAT MCCANN
Florida Freedom Newswire
Beginning Monday, July 2, poker players and Washington
County could be profiting from gambling limit changes made
possible by the Florida Legislature.
Ebro Greyhound Park president Stocky Hess said that
the changes Gov. Charlie Crist allowed to become law last
week means that Shuffles card room at the track can offer
games with higher stakes.
Currently all Texas Hold 'Em, stud and Omaha High-
Low games have a limit of $2 per bet, with selected Hold
'Em tournaments offering higher one-time buy-ins, usually
$40-45.
"The betting limit has gone from $2 to $5, and the other
part of the law is there's no betting limit on Hold 'Em games
with a maximum buy-in of $100," Hess said.
"It's going to open it up for whatever the players want
to play. We'll have various limits. We'll keep the $2 Hold
'Em tables, and also have $2-4 tables (betting limit before
and after the flop) and $5 tables."
In addition, Hess said that larger-scale tournaments,
popular with many players because of the increased prize
pool, can offer buy-ins of up to $800, "with re-buys if they're
available."
Another provision in the bill, Hess said, is that it allows
25 percent of the state tax collected from the games to go
directly to the county where the pari-mutuel facility is lo-
cated.
With the exception of Indian casinos located in South
Florida and gambling.boats, usually operating out of South
Florida cities, only race tracks offering pari-mutuel gam-
bling currently are allowed to offer legal poker rooms in
the state.
The new law goes into effect July 1, Hess said. Because
that is a Sunday, and Ebro does not offer live greyhound
racing on Sundays unless over a holiday weekend, the new
limits won't go into effect at the track until Monday, July
2. Under state law, poker rooms at pari-mutuel facilities
cannot be open unless there is a live racing program offered
that day.

Summer cycling
safety tips
Now that school is out
for the summer, kids of all
ages are taking to the streets
(and paths and sidewalks) of
America, and they are using
many forms of self-propelled
transport, including scoot-
ers, skateboards, wheelies,
roller blades, segues, and
especially bikes. Bat are they
taking proper safety precau-
tions, including adhering to
helmet safety standards?
"Every year, approxi-
mately 500,000 people end
up in emergency rooms with
injuries resulting from bi-
cycle accidents," said Dr.
Brian Keaton, president
of the American College
of Emergency Physicians
(ACEP). "In addition, more
youngsters ages 5 to 14 visit
the ER every year for bike-
related injuries than any
other sport. And some of
those children die, typically
from head injuries."


That's why ACEP advises
parents to make sure their
youngsters adhere to the
following guidelines when
biking (or using any form of
wheeled, athletic transport):
*Wear a properly fitting
helmet that meets standards
set by the Consumer Product
Safety Commission; these
helmets come with a CPSC
sticker on them.
*Obey all traffic signs
and signals (including never
riding against the flow of
traffic). Use proper hand
signals.
*Avoid road obstacles that
can be associated with falls,
such as wet leaves, large
puddles, rough surfaces,
curbs, gravel or rocks and,
most important, other bikers
or pedestrians.
*Ride a bicycle that is the
appropriate size - or one that
includes one to three inches
of space between the rider
and the top bar when they
have both feet firmly on the
ground when straddling the
bar.
*Adequately maintain
their bicycle with properly
inflated tires, smoothly ad-
justed brakes and a well-
oiled chain.
*Dress in bright clothes
(if possible) and attach (or
wear) reflectors.
*Wear sneakers and avoid-
ing clothing that could get
caught in the bike's chain or
wheels, including loosely fit-
ted pants, shoelaces or any-
thing with straps or chains
dangling.
*Never wear headphones
or talk on cell phones; and
*Never carry another
person or heavy, awkward
items. In addition, parents
may want to encourage their
children to carry bottled
water (in an attached bike
holder).

Protecting the children from Internet predators


PETE DELEA
Freedom Newswire
Nancy McBride spends
most of her day talking
to people and sharing tips
parents can use to help pro-
tect children from violent
predators looking for easy
targets.
McBride, the National
Safety Director for the Na-
tional Center for Missing
and Exploited Children, said
children using instant mes-
sage software and entering
chat rooms can sometimes
be getting into situations
they're not prepared for.
She said one current trend
for children is collecting
online friends. She said
some will have hundreds of
Internet buddies.
"It's almost a badge of
popularity for them," said


McBride.
She said parents need to
routinely look through their
children's buddy list and
question their children about
the handles. She said many
of the names will stand out.
"How do you know this
person?" said McBride.
"You don't put anyone on
your buddy list that you don't
know in the real world.
"Kids post all kinds of
things on blogs and social
networks for everyone to
see but they don't want their
parents to see it," she said.
"Once it's out there, you
can't get those back."
She said parents need to
learn what their children
are doing online. She said
parents should sit down and
let their children show them
what they do but also they


should learn independently
by browsing Web sites and
even attending safety semi-
nars.


"Chances are your kids
probably know more than
you do," said McBride.
"Learn about as much as


Chat room lingo
Common phrases your children might be using in
chat rooms or in text messages to friends
*143: I love you
*BFF: Best friends forever
*BCNU: I'll be seeing you
*BTW: Between you and me
*H&K: Hug and kiss
*IPN: I'm posting naked
*KFY: Kiss for you
*LYL: Love you lots
*MHBFY: My heart bleeds for you

you can. Ignorance is not an
excuse."
What can you do to pro-
tect your kids from being
victims of online preda-
tors?
*Talk to your child about
sexual victimization and
potential online danger..
*Spend time with your
children online. Have them
teach you about their favor-
ite online destinations.
*Keep the computer in a
common room in the house,
not in your child's bed-
room.
*Utilize parental controls

*Always maintain access

New breed of sexual predators


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
afelsberg@chipleypaper.com
Recent arrests and con-
victions of sexual predators
and offenders in the area
highlight the ongoing prob-
lem caused by these cases.
The Washington County
Sheriff's Office is tracking
down sex offenders who
fail to register as required
by state law. One recent case
'involved Timothy Flowers, a
36-year-old white male. He
is sentenced to five years in
the Department of Correc-
'tions for failure to follow
sexual offender registration
requirements according to
Florida statue.
"When we identified
that several sexual offend-
ers were falling through the
cracks we made it a prior-
ity to assign a department,
consisting of Sgt. Gary Hall
and Karen Dodd, to focus on.
tracking these offenders and'
immediately apprehending
those who do not follow the
requirements for registra-
tion," Sheriff Bobby Had-
dock said.
"We have presented these
cases to Assistant State At-
torney Barbara Finch and
with a successful prosecution
in the Flowers case, we are
sending a strong message to
sexual offenders who choose
not to follow the rules put in
place by the state."
However, a new facet
of sexual predator has be-
come well known through
extensive media coverage:
Internet predators.
Since the birth of the In-
ternet, sexual predators with
no prior arrest records or
'-ihdications of being sexual
predators are now popping
Up miles away from their
homes.. Law enforcement
in Holmes and Washington
counties, as well as state and
federal agencies, is making
a concerted effort to bring


these individuals to justice.
According to current sta-
tistics, more than 77 million
children regularly use the In-
ternet. According to the Fed-
eral Internet Crimes Against
Children Task Force, Florida
ranks fourth in the nation
in volume of child pornog-
raphy. Nationally, one in
seven children between the
ages of 10 and 17 have been
solicited online by a sexual
predator.
This has led to "sting"
operations by the 14th Dis-
trict State Attorney's office
and the Florida Attorney
General's Office.
One of the best known
operations was in May, when
in an intensive statewide"
effort to stop the Internet
solicitation of children and
the distribution of child
pornography, 126 individu-
als have been arrested by a
task force of local, state and.-
federal law enforcement of-'
ficials, including the"Attor-
ney General's Child Predator
CyberCrime Unit.
The arrests announced to-
day were part of "Operation
Eviction," a five-month ini-
tiative targeting individuals
who prey on children over
the Internet and led by the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement. The operation
ran from January 1 through
May 31.
"The importance of pre-
senting a united front against
cyber criminals, when we
are trying to protect our
children, can not be over
emphasized," said Attorney
General Bill McCollum.
"Internet predators know
no geographical boundaries,
and we must fully cooperate
to effectively cover our state
with our protective efforts.
This operation has achieved
phenomenal results and my
office will soon have.50 ad-
ditional staff members in the
CyberCrime Unit to assist in'


these endeavors."
Operation Eviction was a
coordinated effort by Flori-
da's law enforcement com-
munity in support of the U.S.
Attorney General's Project
Safe Childhood, which aims
to combat the proliferation
of technology-facilitated
sexual exploitation crimes
against children by merging
together all available re-
sources. Participants includ-
ed the Attorney General's
Child Predator CyberCrime
Unit, the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement's
Computer Crime Center,
the North Florida and South
Florida Internet Crimes-
Against Children task forces,
the U.S. Attorney General's
Office and local law enforce-
ment agencies. During the
operation, 261 investigations
were initiated and 87 search
warrants were executed.
Those arrested represent 28
counties.
In an even larger case,
British police, aided by U.S.
authorities, have smashed
a global Internet pedophile
ring that broadcast live-
streamed videos of children
being abused, investigat-
ing more than 700 suspects
worldwide and rescuing
31 children in a 10-month
probe.
The Internet allows many
potential predators the free-
dom to pursue young victims
that they might not have
normally. Dr. John Billinsky,
a psychiatrist with Cleveland
Regional Medical Center
in North Carolina, told the
North Carolina Freedom
Newswire that some preda-
tors might not have acted on
their urges before the World
Wide Web came into play for
fear of being caught in their
own communities.
But with the opportunities
to arrange meetings in other
communities, they might
act out.


"For those that have an
interest in pedophilia, the
Internet provides a wealth
of opportunities," said Bil-
linsky, who previously
served as the psychiatrist
for Maine's state prison and
director of forensics services
for South Carolina's Depart-
ment of Mental Health.
Billinsky said most of
the people caught over the
Internet probably are like
most sex offenders. "Not
only wasn't it their first,
there were probably many
others," he said.
He said research shows
that for one sex offense
conviction, a person usually
has at least 10 episodes of
sexual misconduct. He said
rehabilitation rates are poor
and most will strike again if
not stopped.
"If we are talking about
a pedophiliac, the cure rate
is pretty dismal," said Bil-
linsky. "If someone is doing
it out of curiosity it's hard
to say."
The Attorney General's
Child Predator CyberCrime
Unit was established in
2005. This unit works to
expand programs to further
safeguard children from
predatory criminals and
includes law enforcement in-
vestigators and prosecutors
whose primary mission is to
target child predators, child
pornography, and Internet-
based sexual exploitation of
children.
In less than two years,
the unit has facilitated the
arrests of 40 individuals who
created, possessed or dis-
tributed child pornography,
or who sexually solicited
children online and traveled
to meet them.

Watermelon
Festival coming up
Hear ye! Hear ye! Chi-
pley's 51 st Watermelon Fes-
tival event is at hand.
A few days ago, our sev-
en-year-old grandson, Perry
Edward Wells II, picked up
one of the colorful aqver-
tising flyers for this year's
festival with the statement:
"Is this really the '51st'
watermelon festival?" Upon
being told "yes," his next
question was: "Have I been
to all of them?" When that
answer was "no," he com-
mented: "My daddy has
been to every one!"
The watermelon festival
had its humble beginnings
in 1956 at the Ross Deal
watermelon loading shed
with a cook out celebration.
Watermelon producers were
invited to join with the out-
of-town watermelon buyers
for a joyous and fun time
celebration.
Ross Deal stayed active,
for many years, in water-
melon producing, promoting
and acting as a "broker" in
that he assisted other grow-
ers in getting top prices for
their melons. He served on
the annual watermelon fes-
tival committee as long as
health allowed.
For years, the watermelon
festival centered around se-
lecting a local "queen" each
year to represent our festival
in the state-wide competi-
tion for "state queen." A
second major event was the
big parade. In earlier years,
high school marching bands
participated in our parade,
as did military units from
Tyndall Air Force Base and
Fort Rucker, Ala.
A South Alabama-North-
west Florida Horseman's
Approved Horse Show was
staged at the horse-riding
arena adjacent to the Ag-
riculture Center. This was
a competitive event where
trophies and other-prizes
were awarded.
Auctioning the top qual-
ity watermelons, submitted
by area farmers for the "big
melon" contest, came early
in the history of the local
festival. Prizes were given
for the largest melons among
a host of different varieties
entered by growers. The
proceeds from the bidding
of the 'watermelons paid
the expenses of the yearly
event.
Serving free slices of wa-
termelon to our visitors has
always been a part of the fes-
tival. Contests for children
came from this. activity with
prizes awarded for seed spit-
ting, melon ,eating and the
melon roll using the nose to
propel the watermelon.
Music, games for chil-
dren, hog calling and rooster
calling contests were held
on Friday night prior to the
big Saturday event and had
its beginning at the football
stadium at Chipley High
School.
Gene Ragan presented a


pre-taped watermelon fes-
tival promotion on his Sat-
urday evening Farm Show
seen on Channel 4 in Do-
than, Ala.
The extreme heat in late
June prohibited this type of
activity in mid-day. It was
tried on at least one occasion
when Red Holland, WTVY-
TV personality came to
Chipley on Saturday and
emceed a program staged
on Railroad Avenue from
an improvised stage with a
small tarpaulin as the only
shade from the scorching
sun. Chip Carter, son of
President Jimmy Carter,
graced our festival with a
visit that year. Due to the
heat, Chip was soon ready to
be driven to Tri-County Air-
port by Buddy Cummings
to an awaiting airplane ,for a
return flight to Atlanta.
In 1976, the "prattler"
began what proved to be 30
years as chairman of the Pan-
handle Watermelon Festival.
My "reign" concluded with
the 2005 event, and County
Judge Colby Peel now holds
the chairman position.
After 1982, the Friday
Fun Night has been held at
the Northwest Florida Music
Park. That same year, the
Saturday activities of music,
square dancing, clogging,
big melon auction and other
functions were carried on in
the newly air conditioned
auditorium at the recently
renovated Agriculture Cen-
ter.
Dalton Carter, founder
of Wausau's August Fun
Day Festival, assisted inf
staging the watermelon fes-
tival for many years. Lamar
Townsend' improvised a
stage from a trailer or flat-
bed truck and Dalton did
the master of ceremonies
assignment, both at Friday
Fun Night and at the Satur-
day festival.
. One of Dalton's long-
standing welcoming gim-
micks to the watermelon
festival crowd was: "Eat
yourselves a 'bait' of water-
melon here at this festival,
then go to Bonifay's all night
sing on July 4 and load- up
on some good gospel sing-
ing and, from there, be in
Wausau on the first Saturday
in August and fill up on 'pos-
sum and taters."
Another of Dalton Cart-
er's "funnies" was inquiring
from those in attendance
at the watermelon festival:
"How many farmers do we
have here from Alabama?,
He would always get a good
showing of hands. His. an-
nouncement then was: "We
have a special gift package
for each of you Alabama

farmers. It is a tobacco sack
filled with a mixture of cof-
fee weed and sandspur seed."
His joke always received a
lot of laughter, but no takers
on the seed package.
When asked what he
needed for his "budget" to
pay the talent for a water-
melon festival, Dalton would
answer: "Judge, try to get me
about $250.1 think I can pay
everything on that."
A few years before retire-
ment, I felt compelled to tell
Dalton that the committee
had just paid $250 for mo-
tel expenses for the visiting
band that year.
,Times have changed in
the structure of Chipley's
Panhandle Watermelon Fes-
tival in its 51-year history.
The fun and festivity, and
the attraction for a ripe, red
cool watermelon, has not
changed.
The watermelon festi-
val is recognized as our
county's number one event
as far as drawing a crowd is
concerned. Our visitors have
consistently given our festi-
val higher ratings over other
watermelon celebrations in
neighboring areas.
I am honored for the priv-
ilege of having served as
chairman of this wholesome,
family oriented, community
activity which has put Chi-
pley "on the map." Our area
is the undisputed champion
in growing the delicious,
and highly sought after, wa-
termelon.
I also appreciate the sup-
port of the dedicated water-
melon festival committee,
past and present.
In retirement as chair-
man, the "prattler" finds
that his own grandchildren

considered his title in a
higher regard then he could
even imagine. They equated
the title of "chairman" as a
special distinction bestowed
on their granddaddy.
It is an added pleasure to
observe that all the grandss"
place a high priority on
attending the watermelon
festival each June.
It's that time again, and
the "prattler" hopes to see
you at the watermelon festi-
val June 23.
See you-all next week.

Memory of fallen soldier honored
The death of a soldier last month brought an association even closer.
During the annual summer conference of the Florida State Association
of Supervisor of Elections held in San Destin last month, an announce-
ment was made that Glenda Penton, an employee of the Walton County
Elections Office, had lost her son, Tim Padgett, in Afghanistan.
At Tim's request prior to his death, his mother had begun to collect
and ship stuffed animals to be distributed to the children he came in
contact with during his mission. He had a love for children and was the
father to eight-year-old Summer Lyn.
Several supervisors devised a plan so that anyone who was interested
could donate and the money would be used to purchase and ship addi-
tional stuffed animals in Padgett's memory.
Carol Griffin, supervisor of elections in Washington County, agreed
to oversee the project. "Through those donations, we were able to pur-
chase almost 300 stuffed bears and make a really nice care package for
his unit," Griffin said. She followed up by noting that there was also
enough money to make a $500 donation to the trust fund that has been
set up for Tim's daughter, Summer Lyn.
The packages (sample above) were shipped on Thursday addressed
simply to: In Memory of: Tim Padgett along with his unit's address. His
mother was contacted prior to this and wanted everyone to know that
she deeply appreciates all that has been done.

WATERMELON 2007

Dune Buggy the Clown is one reason kids love the Watermelon Festival.


Jay Felsberg/WCN/HCTA


Numerous vendors will be on hand at the 51st annual Watermelon Festival.


Country legend Gene Watson headlines Festival


Gene Watson will head-
line the 51st annual Water-
melon Festival in Chipley.
Though he can sing hon-
ky-tonk, Gene Watson built
a reputation for soulful bal-
lads in the classical country
tradition. He is most famous
for his 1975 hit "Love in
the Hot Afternoon" and his
1982 hit "Fourteen Carat
Mind."
Watson was born in Pal-
estine, Texas (one of seven
children), in 1943 and be-
gan his music career in the
early 1970s, performing in
local clubs at night while
working in a Houston auto
body shop during the day.
He only recorded for a few
small, regional record la-
bels like Wide World and
Stoneway until 1974, when
Capitol Records picked up
his album "Love in the Hot
Afternoon" from Resco Re-
cords and released it nation-
ally.
The title track, a mid-
tempo ballad in three-quar-
. ter time, was released in

eral Billboard top-40 hits,
including "Where Love
Begins," "Paper Rosie,"
"Farewell Party," "Should
I Come (or Should I Go
Crazy)," and "Nothing Sure
Looked Good on You."
In 1982, after switching
to the MCA label, he re-
corded the only number-one
hit of his career, "Fourteen
Carat Mind." He followed
up with several more hits in
the early 1980s, including
"Speak Softly (You're Talk-
ing to My Heart)," "You're
Out Doing What I'm Doing
Here Doing Without" and
"Got No Reason Now for
Going Home." By the mid-
1980s, he was recording for
Epic Records, where his
most notable hit was 1985's
"Memories to Burn."
Watson never gave up
his classical country style,
even as he continued to re-
cord music throughout the
1980s. He signed with War-
ner Bros. and released two
new albums in 1989 and
1991. He recorded his last

album, From the Heart, un-
der the Row Music Group
label in 2001.
In 2005, Watson released
his latest album, "Then &
Now."
In May 2007, Gene Wat-
son signed with the inde-
pendent Shanachie Records
and began work on his first
album for the label, which
will include new material,
along with at least three
covers of some of Gene's
favorite classic country
tunes. The new album is
slated for a September 2007
release.
It was also in May 2007
that the (all new) Gene Wat-
son Site went 'live'. The
site, which is owned and
maintained by 'Sean Brady,
is based in the Republic of
Ireland.
"Watson is a vocal styl-
ist of considerable talent,"
David Vinopal of All Music
Guide, "and still owns his
own body shop."

Music and Arts Festival coming up


The Sunny Hills com-
munity will play host to
the "Songs of the South"
Music and Arts Festival
Saturday, October 20, at
Wilder Park. This all-day
event, held in .coordina-
tion with the Washington
County Arts Council, will
celebrate the music, cul-
ture and arts and crafts of
Northwest Florida.
Admission is FREE.
A full schedule of mu-
sic performances are
planned from local and
regional bands in a vari-
ety of genres: bluegrass,
country, folk, and gospel.
In addition to the main
stage, a secondary stage
will be set up at the food
court where individu-
als or smaller groups of
performers, storytellers,
or dancers can entertain
diners while they enjoy
Southern food from our
vendors. (The festival is
completely alcohol-free.)
During intermissions of
the regularly scheduled
programming, the stage
will be open to informal
jam sessions.


Celebrating local folk
arts is another important
component of the festival.
A "gallery" tent, spon-
sored by the Washington

held at the beginning of
the 2007 school year to
choose a piece of artwork

The Real
Drought
We have experienced a
severe drought in the south-
east since the first of the
year, and for the past month
there have been a lot of talk
about praying for rain.
As I am writing the rains
have begun to come, but I
must tell you of the first
sign of this rain that we had
here at the house and the
church. It was Tuesday,
June 5,1 had met with some
of the men from the church
for breakfast at Simbo's.
Because Judy was working
in Panama City that week,
I decided to head south af-
ter breakfast, to spend some
time relaxing and meditat-
ing. because I really needed
to do some writing, and
then I planned to meet with
her for supper.
As I was traveling south
and noticing the thirsty
v etationall all around, and
se|ng church signs ask-


ing us to pray for rain, the
Lord seemed to speak and
say," everybody's praying,
but not believing, because
we keep on watching to see
what the weather reports
say.
At that point I called Car-
la, my secretary back at the
church, and asked her to go
out to our sign and change
it to read "Pray - Believe -
Bring Your Umbrella."
A couple of hours later
I called back to the church,
but this time. Kim, our
youth minister, answered
the phone and had no idea
where Carla was. But as we
where talking, Kim said,
"here she is, she just came
in and she is soaking wet."
Then Carla came to the
phone and began telling me,
that as she began changing
the sign, it began raining.
We've had some rain just
about everyday since, prov-
ing that a little faith will not
only move a mountain, but
also a fluffy little cloud.


From the


Heart

Tim Hall

Because Judy was tired
from her week of work
and because it was also the
week of our anniversary, we
decided to take the camper
down to
Saint Andrews State


Park, Thursday, Friday and
Saturday. We didn't get
back until late Saturday, and
when we did it was raining
so beautifully. Yet all the
beautiful flowers that Judy
has hanging from the roof
of our front porch looked
as though they had died of
thirst.
Because they were un-
der the shelter of the porch,
they had not received any
of the rain, though it was
all around them, and they
were drying up fast. Judy
was ready to throw them all
away. But instead of throw-
ing them away, I brought
the water hose out, and gave
them a good drink. To her
surprise, Sunday morning
they had all perked up and
were ready to bloom again.
Both of these experi-
ences worked great with the
message the Lord had given
me for that Sunday morning
about the Samaritan woman
who Jesus met at the well
found in John chapter four.


This woman who came to
the well in the scorching
heat of the mid-day Sun, to
avoid the blistering stares
of the other women of the
town, because of her im-
moral lifestyle, was much
like the flowers on the
porch and many individuals
who have lived in the Bible
belt all their life.
The source of living,
saving, fulfilling life is all
around them, but they have
not taken a drink. Either be-
cause no one has taken it to
them personally, or unlike
the Samaritan, they have
refused the living water that
one can only receive by re-
ceiving Christ as the Lord of
their life. "But just this lady
was able leave her water pot
to go tell her friends of her
experience of meeting the
source of living water.
You see, she had come
to fill a clay pot, which still
sat on the ground empty,
because her heart which she
had not come to fill, was


now overflowing with liv-
ing water. As the rains are
now quenching the thirst of
the vegetation and the land,
Christ offers to quench
your. thirst, which success,
education, family, religion,
wealth, prestige, politics,
and self-helps have all left
you thirsty for more, for that
which will actually meet the
real needs of your life.
Today Jesus says to you
as He said to her, "Ev-
eryone who drinks of this
water will thirst again; but
whoever drinks of the wa-
ter that I will give him shall
never thirst; but the water
that I will give him will be-
come in him a well of water
springing up to eternal life."
John 4:13 - 14 (NASB) Your
drought can also end for
you as you receive eternal
life through Jesus Christ.

Youth choirs tour Baptist College of Florida


Two traveling youth
choirs toured the Baptist
College campus recently.
They spent time at the col-
lege with faculty and stu-
dents as a part of their sum-
mer mission trips.
The first group of 45 stu-
dents and parents were from
Turning Point at Calvary in
St. Augustine. They spent
a night in the Napier and
Lakeside dorms, experienc-
ing college life firsthand.


Early the next morning,
they ate breakfast and were
greeted by BCF President
Thomas Kinchen and S&nior
Vice President R. C. Ham-
mack. Students were able to
tour the college campus and
ask questions about BCF's
curriculum, facilities, and
basic student life.
The group received ad-
ditional BCF information
packets and left for their
choir tour in Mississippi.


First Baptist Church of
High Springs arrived with
53 students, parents, and
staff for a day at BCF. After
being greeted by Kinchen
and Hammack in the college
gazebo, the group divided
up and toured the campus.
They were given the oppor-
tunity to ask questions and
get to know the impact that
the college, students, and
alumni are making through-
out the country.


BCF provided a cook-
out by Lake Albert, which
is located on the campus
grounds. The highlight of
the day came when the
group gathered in the R.
G. Lee Chapel for worship
led by the music depart-
ment. They left with full
hearts, BCF information,
and smiles to work with the
Alabama Baptist Children's
Home in Dothan over the
weekend.

demonstrate Christian living


After a brief visit to
Moscow, the group ar-
rived at their temporary
home, a retreat center in
Volgegrad. Russian stu-
dents, that spoke English,
roomed with .American
students so they could get
to know each other better.
Each group of students
learned about traditions
and culture from the other,
including many Russian
games. They toured mon-
uments and learned about
the history of the war torn
country.
Because of the nation's
resistance to Christianity,
the 23 Americans were
challenged to be a living
testimony of their faith. By
the end of the two weeks,
the Russian students knew
that all the Americans


were Christians by their
actions and individual
conversations. The goal of
the Russian woman who
organized the camp was to
provide Russian students
the opportunity to learn as
much as they could about
Christianity.
According to Parnell,
one of the best parts of
the trip was the laid back
atmosphere and the oppor-
tunity to engage in honest
conversations and get to
know the Russian students
on a personal basis. '

We hae have all had the experience of listening to the advice.of
others and then following it even though it just didn't feel right to us.
Sometimes we know in our heart of hearts what we really should do, ;,
but the pressure of others so forcefully exerts itself that we ignore
that little voice within us. And although most of us have the capacity
to. solve our own problems with a combination of reasoning and
listening to what our own feelings and conscience are telling us;
perhaps the reason we so often listen to'
, others and ignore our own best judgment is
\f .n / that it is easier to hear the clamor of other
'. voices than it is to hear our own. It takes
patience and solitude to hear the voice
within us, but with practice, and the courage
to go against the crowd, we can learn to
B trust ourselves and make our own decisions
about the things that really matter to us.
B /And even if we make a few mistakes,
it is far better to make our own mistakes
Q0 and have them truly be ours than to listen
to what others tell us to do, and in effect,
- live someone else's life. Remember that
conscience is the voice of God within us,
butwe often can't hear this voice because we aren't listening.
Plan carefully what you do, and whatever you do will turn out
right.

Free wind inspections for homeowners


More than one month
ahead of schedule, the My
Safe Florida Home program
has "blown" through its
waiting list and urged more
Florida homeowners to take
advantage of the valuable
service. Since the program
resumed offering inspec-
tions in late April, more
than 50,000 Floridians who
were on the program's wait-
ing list from the pilot phase
have received free wind in-
spections.
New applicants can
apply at the MSFH pro-
gram's Web site at www.
MySafeFloridaHome.com
or over the program's toll-
free helpline at 1-866-513-
MSFH (6734). With a free
wind inspection from the
MSFH program, Floridians
can learn how safe their
homes are, what they can do
to strengthen their homes
against hurricanes, and if
they are eligible for savings
on their hurricane insurance
premiums.
Homeowners who re-
ceive an inspection through
the MSFH program may be
eligible for matching grants
up to $5,000 to help harden
their homes.


Any Floridian who lives
in a single-family site-built
home is eligible for a free
wind' inspection through,
the program. Homeown-
ers who receive free wind
inspections through the
MSFH program will receive
a detailed inspection report,
complete with eligibility
information on matching
grants and estimated insur-
ance premium discounts, if
the homeowner is eligible.
In order to be eligible
for the program's matching
grant reimbursement, hom-
eowners who sign up now
must meet the following
requirements under a new
law: have received a com-
pleted wind inspection re-
port after May 1, 2007; live
in a single-family, site-built
home built before March 1,
2002; have a valid home-
stead exemption; insured
value of $300,000 or less;
and be located in the wind-
borne debris region.
Florida's Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink led the
Florida Cabinet to require
insurance companies for the
next 90 days to recognize
the MSFH wind inspection
reports as sufficient evi-


dence for homeowners to
access insurance premium
discounts, if they are eli-
gible.
Previously, participating
homeowners were required
by insurance companies
to hire a wind inspector or
other licensed professional
to fill out a separate form to
access insurance discounts,
often at great cost to the
consumer. After 90 days,
future inspections with the
MSFH program will in-
clude a certified Uniform
Mitigation Form for Florida
homeowners who are eli-
gible for a discount on their
insurance premiums.
Since April 2007, the
MSFH program has award-
ed more than 5,600 grants
to homeowners to harden
their homes. Nearly 250 ho-
meowners have completed
the improvements recom-
mended in their inspection
reports for a total payout
of more than $680,000.
Homeowners are being re-
imbursed for half the cost
up to $5,000 on a variety
of home improvements, in-
cluding hurricane shutters,
reinforced garage doors and
roof enhancements.
