Watermelon

Festival
.Legendary country music star
Gene Watson performed for a
packed house as the finale of the
51st annual Watermelon Festival in
Chipley June 23. He was headliner
for the festival that included activi-
ties for pretty much everybody.
Perry Wells writes that, "Country
singer Gene Watson and his band
came all the way to Chipley from
Houston, Texas, on their colorful,
home-away-from-home, travel bus
to thrill the hearts of the awaiting
crowd of fans in the agriculture
center auditorium.
"Gene sang his heart out for a
full hour to a standing room only,
packed house of spectators. He
sang many of his hit songs that have
brought fame to his singing career,
both in personal performances and
in recordings.
"What more fitting Gene Watson
song could have been used to close
his show than his main number one
signature rendition of 'Farewell
Party?' He did numerous other
songs which have become equally
'best sellers' for the country music
star."

Bomb threat

called into

Regions Bank
A bomb threat was called into
Regions Bank in Chipley just after
10:30 a.m.
Chipley Police Department was
on the scene within a very short
time to set up a perimeter around
the bank, while police officers and
Sheriff's deputies entered to search
the building. Chipley Fire Depart-
ment was on hand, as well. Bank
employees said a woman called in
the threat.
The bank was quickly cleared to
resume business, and investigation
continues into the crime.

Fatal wreck on Hwy. 77


Early morning hours, dense
fog, and extremely low visabil-
ity may have been factors in the
Sunday morning accident on State
Road 77 in Chipley, which killed
an elderly Washington County
woman.
Florida Highway Patrol report-
ed that Velma Ferguson Branham,
74, of Sunny Hills, was driving
a 1989 Chevrolet S10 Blazer on
SR 77 at Pine Log Road when
the accident occurred at 5:05 a.m.
Sunday June 24.
Lee Issac Alford, 32, of Chi-
pley suffered minor injuries and
was taken to Northwest Florida
Community Hospital in Chipley.
He was driving a 2005 F150
model Ford.
According to the Florida High-
way Patrol report, the Alford
vehicle was traveling northbound
on State Road 77 and Bran-
ham was traveling southbound.
The right side tires of Alford's
vehicle drifted off the east road
edge and the driver attempted to
bring the vehicle back to the road
surface.
Alford went across the south-
bound traffic lane and the left
side tires went off the west road
edge.
Alford attempted to pull his
vehicle back onto the roadway.
While attempting to get back to
its side of the road, the left front

of Alford's vehicle struck the front
of Branham's vehicle, which spun
around counterclockwise, coming
to rest facing northeast across
both traffic lanes.
Alford's vehicle finally came,
to rest in the. northbound lane
facing north.,

Branham was pronounced
dead at the scene.
Both drivers were wearing

Vernon City

Council calls

for contract

revisions

JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
afelsberg@chipleypaper.com
Vernon City Council agreed to
have City Attorney Kerry Adkison
negotiate several revisions to con-
tract recommendations from the
City's engineering firm. The action
was taken at Monday's regular
meeting of City Council.
Adkison told Council about his
concern about certain provisions
of a contract recommended by
Baskerville-Donovan, Inc. Problem
areas included a provision relieving
BDI of any liability on asbestos and
pollution violations at the City's
new sewer plant. There was also a
provision providing a $50,000 cap
on liability from BDI.
Adkison will discuss the provi-
sions with BDI and return to Coun-
cil with an update.
The packet to use to prepare the
Moss Hill Road development for
the city's Community Redevelop-
ment Agency has arrived. The de-
veloper will also need an estimated
35,000 gallons a day of capacity
from the sewer plant, which will
be reserved for use of the develop-
ment. City Clerk Sherry Cobb said
the new plant is only operating at
about 25 percent capacity, so there
is plenty of room for growth.
Developers will also pay for
the infrastructure for water and
sewer at the development, which
includes a large shopping center,
and turn maintenance over to the
City. Washington County will build
the infrastructure to City specifica-
tions.
Council is still awaiting word of
grant funding through a Commu-
nity Development Block Grant, but
it was reported that the developers
would build infrastructure whether
or not the City gets the CDBG.
Council also approved sending
a letter to a property owner cross
connected to the City water system
that the owner has two weeks to
disconnect.
The Firecracker Pageant is Sat-
urday, and the doors open at 10 a.m.
for registration at the Cafetorium in
old Vernon High School. The pag-
eant gets underway at 1 p.m. and
has several categories. Tickets are
$5 adults, $2 ages five-1,2 and.free
for children under five. Proceeds go
to fund Firecracker Day.
.. Firecracker Day is Wednesday,
July 4. The parade through down-
town Vernon begins at 4 p.mh Activ-
ity moves to the Sponrsplex at 5:30
p.m. featuring Margo Anderson.
Fireworks are at dusk.

Beauty abounded as the Watermelon queens paraded.


Monday's Bonifay City
Council meeting featured
further action in the .case of
Assistant Chief Joe Sallas.
Council voted 6-1 to keep
Sallas as assistant police
chief in Bonifay.
Sallas may have kept his
job, but Council decided that
he is not off the hook for
falsifying internal training
documents. Bonifay Police
Chief Ronnie Bennett con-
ducted an internal investi-
gation and recommended to


vocation of his departmental
teaching certificate and a
personnel letter of reprimand
to his file.
Council approved that rec-
ommendation, but amended
it to suspend Sallas without
pay for three weeks. Mayor
Frederic Howell cast the
dissenting vote. Sallas faces
further investigation by the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's Criminal Jus-
tice Standards and Training
Commission.

This story did not stay in Vegas ..


Driving the streets of Las
Vegas is a man from Nairobi,
Kenya. His vehicle is a Ford
Explorer; he is employed as
a cab driver. I do not know
his name.
And he started it.
My dad had to attend a
conference in Las Vegas
and invited my wife and
I to join him. During that
weekend, we ate at some
great restaurants and saw
two shows: Spamalot with
John O'Hurley and Cirque
du Soleil.
Then it was time to head
home. The valet hailed a cab
for us. And that's how we
met the man from Nairobi,
Kenya.
The man had a huge smile
with a few teeth missing. A
cloud of white hair circled
his domed head. He was,
perhaps, just over 5-and-a-
half-feet tall. He was neither
lean nor fat. He had a heavy
accent. He appeared to be an
average man.
Two minutes into the ride
to the airport the man from
Kenya asked for our story,
"How was your stay? Was
this trip business or vaca-
tion?"
My dad explained the sit-
uation: I came for business,
and they came for vacation.
How about you, are you from
here originally?
Four years ago the man's
wife won her visa in the gov-
ernment lottery. They began
making plans to move with
their son and daughter to the
United States. The decision
to move to Las Vegas came
from learning that there were
friends and jobs available in
Nevada.
At the time that the man's
wife won her visa, their
daughter was 20. Just weeks
before the passports were
finally processed, the daugh-
ter turned 21 and lost the
opportunity to travel with
the family.
Since they have been
here, a lawyer swindled
them out of $300 with the
promise that a letter to the
Embassy in Kenya would
allow the daughter to move
to the United States. They
were told by immigration
that after a wait of three
years the appropriate wait-


One Word


Andrew Hollinger

ing period and paperwork
would be complete. Those
three years have passed and
still the daughter is stuck in
Kenya.
That's where the story
stopped. I feel for the man.
He told us his story with
the tone of a man endlessly
defeated, but not able to give
up the fight. He suspects that
the congressional focus on
illegal immigration is part of
what is keeping his daughter
out of the country.
They moved to America,
he said, because there is
more opportunity here. In
Nairobi, the United States
is still The Land of the Free
and a place for any man
to find success. But he has
met with roadblocks and
obstacles. Their only bright
light is that they are right on
track to become naturalized
citizens.
So why this story? Why
should you know it?
In a year thousands of
people will ride in that Ford
Explorer and never hear his
story. The story will always
exist. But like any book, the
story needs to be opened.
That time, we only needed
to ask, "How about you?" to
hear the intricate details.
Any story can be told if
there is only someone to
listen.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the Editor
I was coming into town by 1-10 when I saw the law had
somebody pulled over in the median. I looked and it was Joe
Sallas. He was changing a tire for a woman. He could have
called someone else to do it and sat in his air conditioned
car. He didn't do that though.
When I went by the bank, it was 103 degrees. Can we ask
for any better from our police department? Way to go Joe!

How much does Vaughn
Cordle know about the state
of the U.S. airline industry?
Well, the CEO and chief
analyst of AirlineForecasts
-- who has 25 years-plus
of experience as a pilot for
a major airline -- makes a
large part of his living sell-
ing what he knows about air-
line finances and economics
to hedge funds, government
agencies and consulting
groups.
*Q: What's the airline
industry's biggest problem
right now -- and who or what
is to blame for it?
*A: The U.S. airline in-
dustry is the least-profitable
in the world. I believe there
are too many competitors.
We've been crunching num-
bers on all the passenger-car-
rying airlines in the country
and there are 34 airlines that
produce more than $100
million in revenue. So it's
highly fragmented and hy-
per-competitive. We esti-
mate that those 34 airlines
in the domestic market are
coming up about $8 billion
short from earning their cost
of capital.
The big 12 airlines ac-
count for about 96 percent of
passenger capacity. They're
doing quite well internation-
ally but it's the domestic
market that is not doing
so well. The airlines have
to crowd more people into
their aircraft. Load factors
(percentage of a plane's
seats that are sold) have
gone from about 65 percent
a decade ago to in the low
80s and this summer some
airlines probably will have
90 percent load factors. So
this means effectively some
flights have too many people
and they have to turn people
away.
It's crowded and airline
employees are demoralized
because they are working
more for a lot less. And when
you have to deal with more
passengers, employees are
working more and they and
passengers are stressed out.
*Q: Has the airline indus-
try finally figured out how to
make profits?
*A: No. They're still los-
ing money. This year we
estimate that the major 12
or 15 airlines will earn about
$3.5 billion. Now that's bet-
ter than the cumulative $35


Opinion

Bill Steigerwald

billion they've lost since
2000, so it is a turnaround
year. But the airlines -- the
money-losing, over-lever-
aged network airlines (Unit-
ed, American, Delta, etc.)
-- have had to pull back sig-
nificant domestic capacity to
force those load factors up so
they could offset the lower
real yields (revenue per pas-
senger carried for one mile).
Unit revenue is still about 14
percent lower than it was in
2000 -- that's the revenue
per available seat mile. But
the yields are still 25 percent
lower. So the higher load
factors mask the real weak-
ness in the airline industry,
which is low yields.
*Q: The Economist maga-
zine recently said that the
best thing governments can
do to help the airline indus-
try become more efficient
and more profitable is to get
out of the way. Do you know
what The Economist was
talking about?
*A: Yes I do. I believe
that the airline industry
could naturally evolve into
a more efficient industry if
the government just gets
out of the way, lets certain
airlines fail and lets mergers
and acquisitions occur. It is
highly fragmented, hyper-
competitive, and there are
destructive fare wars. Today
there was an article in USA
Today that said average fares
were two percent lower than
they were last year. Yet we
have 80 or 90 percent load
factors this summer. So traf-
fic is back up but average
fares are at levels that are
not healthy for the industry,
hence the financial distress


and the exceptionally high
load factors.
But these airlines have
under-invested in their com-
petitive resources -- human
and physical -- and they've
gotto play catch-up. If you
look at capital expenditures
for most of the major carriers,
it's less than depreciation, so
by definition they are in a
slow liquidation. So they've
got to invest and replace old
and aging aircraft.
Labor costs have come
down quite significantly
since 9/11 but the salaries are
unsustainably low at some of
the airlines. Some of these
employees have taken 30 or
40 percent pay cuts -- and
they are working more with
higher load factors. So there
is an unhappiness with some
of the majors'employees and
the industry needs relief.
*Q: Is privatizing the Air
Traffic Control system an
important idea?
*A: I think it's an im-
portant idea. If you look at
the productivity increases
in the U.S. airline industry,
the average network airline
has improved productivity
from 20 to 35 percent. Even
Southwest has improved
productivity 20 percent.
They went from 85 people
per aircraft to a recent 67.
United has gone from 160
people per aircraft down to
115 -- about a 28 percent im-
provement in productivity.
Now if you look at the
Air Traffic, Control system,
90 percent of the cost of the
system is labor, and guess
what? There's been zero
improved productivity over
the last decade. They have
outdated systems that need
to be replaced. It'll take tens
of billions to modernize the
ATC system and that's part
of the problem.
Q: Should it be run by the
airlines themselves?
A: Not by the airlines
but by a group of users of
the airlines. If the users that
paid for the system had some
say, it would in fact be more
efficient than being run by
a government agency that
has congressional meddling,
so to speak. Right now the
system is politicized, which
is not good.
*Q: Is the future of the
airline industry -- and there-
fore air travel for the mass-


es -- going to be better or
worse?
*A: It's going to get worse
as long as we have a highly
fragmented airline industry.
The big major airlines as of
the first quarter produced
64 percent of all capacity.
They are only viable as long
as they have strong interna-
tional routes to subsidize
their domestic operations,
which are losing money.
I'll give you an example.
Continental last year lost
half-a-billion dollars in their
domestic operations but
they made a lot of money in
their Latin America, Atlantic
and Pacific markets. They
made over half-a-billion
dollars in operating profits
in the Atlantic market alone.
Continental's losing a lot of
money in the domestic mar-
kets, and so are they other
airlines, but they need the
domestic markets to feed the
international routes.
The problem arises when
stronger foreign carriers
with better balance sheets,
higher profits and better
service start picking up the
pace. We have some mega-
carriers forming in Asia and
there are going to be a lot of
Airbus 380s coming on to
the market. They have rules
and regulations over there
that are different than ours ...
and they are very profitable.
They have over $5 billion in
excess equity.
If you look at the top 30
world airlines, not one single
U.S. carrier is on the list in
terms of profit margins. And
if you look at their capital
structures, the U.S. network
airlines are at the bottom of
the world list. They have
got over-leveraged balance
sheets and we calculate they
come up about $8 billion
short in revenue. It is a rev-
enue problem. ... In other
words the U.S. airline indus-
try would enjoy $30 billion
more in revenue today if air
travel-personal-consump-
tion expenditures were at the
same level in relative terms
that they were in the previ-
ous decade, prior to 9/11.

The Fort Walton Beach Falcons semi-pro football team practices at the Fort Walton Beach High School football
practice field.

Fort Walton Beach Falcons hoping semi-pro team will soar


RANDY DICKSON
Florida Freedom News-
wire
.Shortly before 6 p.m. on
a Wednesday evening, foot-
S-ball players gathered on the
.practice field in the shadows
:-:of Steve Riggs Stadium at
"-Fort Walton Beach High
-School.
No, it wasn't a summer
workout for the Fort Walton
Beach Vikings. It was the
Fort Walton Beach Falcons
going through their paces as
"they prepare for the upcom-
-ing semi-pro season.
For the third time in a
year, the Falcons are under
.new ownership. And if you
count the team the Falcons
replaced, the Okaloosa-Wal-
--ton Jets, this is the fourth
'-,regime in less than three
,.seasons.
But things seem different
this time.
. Brothers Wesley and Bri-
an Lewis have taken over the
-feam and are determined to
make things work. Wesley
handles the promotional
and off the field stuff while
Brian is in charge of football
operations.
"My brother played for
"the team three years in a
row, and they weren't going
to have an owner this year,"
Wesley said. "My brother
asked me to step in and help
6ut. So I'm out here just try-
ing to help my brother get to
the next level."
With a seemingly endless
-turnover in ownership, the
Lewis brothers have strug-
gled to gain credibility for
the team in the community
and with the players.


"It's been an uphill bat-
tle for us the whole time,"
Wesley said. "The previous
owners didn't carry out their
obligations, s6 when we go
to talk to people it's, 'Oh no,
this team again.'"
In an effort to do things
the right way, the Falcons
have joined the Fort Walton
Beach Chamber of Com-
merce.
And rather than play-
ing their games at Destin
Elementary School as they
did last season, they'll play
their home games under the
lights at Steve Riggs Sta-
dium when the season opens
next month.
The home opener is sched-
uled for July 21. Game time
will be 7:30 p.m. and ticket
prices are $5 each.
"We wanted to make it
affordable so a family could
come and watch the game,"
Wesley said. "At these prices
a family of four can see us
play for $20."
There also are plans to
have the games broadcast on
Cox Cable.
As Wesley works off the
field, Brian is doing double
duty as both an owner and
player.
"It's a lot of work," Brian
said. "When you're a player
you just come to practice
and leave. Now it's a 24-
hour job.
"I'm fortunate enough
that I have a job that I can
actually do stuff (related to
the team), but from the time
I wake up until the time I
go to sleep I'm working on
this."
One of the biggest chal-


lenges for Brian is separat-
ing the roles of owner and
player.
"I have to deal with being
friends with the guys on the
field and still deal with the
business side of it," Brian
said.
"With us not having a big
budget pretty much every-
body has to pay.
"When money is due,
then I have to be the business
man. And on the field I have
to be friendly with every-
body. That's hard balancing
both of those."
Each of the Falcon players
was responsible for securing
a $250 sponsorship from a
local business to cover their
cost of playing. Brian said
the idea behind that was two-
fold - not only does it help
a player that might not have
that much money to play, but
it also helps the community
buy into the team.
"None of the money
should have to come out of
their pocket," Brian said.
"The only thing they had to
pay was a $10 tryout fee."
Brian described the talent
level of the Falcons as being
equal to that of a Division II
college team.
"Two years ago we were
putting 22 guys on the field
and this year we have a full
45-man roster," he said.
Many of the Falcons are
members of the military
serving locally. There's also
a good mix of those who
played high school ball in
Okaloosa County.
Former Fort Walton Beach
running back Anthony Baker
is back for his second year


with the Falcons. He likes
what he has seen from the
new ownership.
"We have a lot more ex-
perience this year," Baker
said. "There's a lot more
energy and we're a lot more
focused.
"I see the future as be-
ing very positive. You look
at where we are playing
this year. We're playing at
one of the best fields in the
county."
Linebacker Jacoby Jack-
son also is excited about the
future.
"There's a lot more ca-
maraderie with the team,"
he said. "It's almost like a
brotherhood.

'Generator rule' being enforced on evacuation routes


MARY D. PARAMORE
Staff Writer
mparamore@chipleypaper.com
Based on recent Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Regulation inspec-
tions, three of five Holmes
County gas stations required
to comply with a new law;
ensuring fuel availability
in emergencies are ready.
In Washington County, just
one of seven stations is in
compliance.
Under direction of the
Governor's office, last year
the FDEP identified fuel
retailers along evacuation
*routes, then selected certain
retailers for compliance
based on the number of
pumping stations and other
criteria. All station owners
were notified in December
2006 that those meeting cer-
tain criteria must be wired
to operate off of generator
power by June 1,2007;
The date has come and
gone, and not all of these
stations are in compliance.
If station owners weren't
paying close attention, they
might not have realized they


were required to.
Sarah Williams, DEP
press secretary, said, "We
submitted a report to the
Legislature March 1 and at
that time had. the number
of affected stations at 254.
When we reviewed that
report (in mid-May), we un-
covered a technical error and
had to correct that number
to 1,584."
Williams said DEP in-
spectors visited all 1,584
stations May 21-25 to deter-
mine how many stations are
in compliance with the new
law. She said that number
now is being adjusted down
as stations demonstrate they
are exempt from the new
regulations.
In Holmes County, sta-
tions presently listed by the
DEP as being required to be
wired for generator use are:
Miller's 1-10 Exxon,
Hwy. 79, Bonifay: Not in
Compliance
Simbo's Truck Stop, 2005
S. Waukesha Street, Boni-

Florida and the nation
learned more than a few


lessons during the hurricane
seasons of 2004 and 2005.
At the top of the state's hur-
ricane prep list is improving
fuel availability.
Some Floridians were
unable to evacuate because
they could not buy gaso-
line, and some emergency
personnel were hampered
because fuel was not avail-
able to power equipment.
Fuel was there, ready and
waiting. The problem? Gas
stations could not dispense
fuel because they had no
electrical power and were
not wired to run on genera-
tors.
The law is intended to
ensure first responders such
as police officers, fire fight-
ers, electricity crews and
hospitals have access to fuel
when communities face di-
sasters such as the aftermath
of hurricanes.
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist
said, "A lot of stations need
to get busy in a hurry. This
is the law and it will be en-
forced to the fullest extent
of the law, including, if need
be, to take them to court."

Area primed for 'mosquito onslaught'


MARY D. PARAMORE
Staff Writer
mparamore@chipleypaper.com
A few mosquitoes might
be buzzing about, but they
are not yet a problem in
Washington County. That's
according to Joe Miner, en-
vironmental manager, at the
Washington County Health
Department. Miner knows
the area is primed for a
mosquito onslaught, though,
and he says Chipley is "more
than ready."
Using reserve funds, Chi-
pley purchased a new truck
for the mosquito control pro-
gram to replace the existing
1975 Dodge that has been in
use since the city program's
inception.
"The old truck still runs
and we'll use it until the
new truck is ready," he said.
Miner said the new truck is
awaiting installation of its
sprayer, which should hap-


pen in the next few weeks.
"The new sprayer can
operate faster and adjusts
the concentration of the in-
secticide to the speed of the
vehicle," Miner said.
The old truck does not
meet safety standards for a
modern mosquito control
program because it has a
standard transmission and
lacks air conditioning. Dur-
ing summer spraying, the
truck's operator, Jimmy
Finch, is forced to choose
between riding with the
windows rolled up in the
sweltering Florida heat and
humidity or risking expo-
sure to insecticide when the
vehicle stops and air comes
through open windows.
Although Washington

59 mosquito control districts,
it does not participate in the
state's mosquito control pro-
gram. The City of Chipley

Horse owners and humans
take note: they're baaaack.
Mosquitoes are beginning to
buzz about, thanks to recent
rains in Washington and
Holmes counties.
Mosquitoes are more than
a pesky nuisance. The bit-
ing insects sometimes cany
blood-borne diseases that
-can infect humans and ani-
mals.
In Florida, eastern equine
encephalitis is of particular
concern.
Dr. Kim George, vet-
* erinarian at Panhandle Vet-
- erinary Services, said local
horse owners should con-
sider vaccinations a part of
regular horse maintenance.
He said, "Oftentimes, people
put it on the back burner.
- I've had two EEE tests come
back positive this year, pos-
sibly a third," George said.
According to George,
money should not be a factor
for horse owners considering
:vaccinations.
"A vaccine that combines


tetanus, western Nile virus
and eastern equine encepha-
litis costs $12. They can give
it or I can give it," he said.
Mosquitoes have not been
a problem this year because
of the severe drought. Mos-
quito eggs lie dormant, of-
ten for years, until water
is available. The eggs then
hatch immediately, which,
in this area, is likely to cause
an exponential surge in the
population.
Agriculture Commission-
er Charles Bronson is urg-
ing horse owners to ensure
their animals are vaccinated
against eastern equine en-
cephalitis and western Nile
virus.
"So far this year there
have been no reports of
human cases of mosquito-
borne illnesses in Florida,"
Bronson said. "We haven't
seen any western Nile cases
either and I hope with proper
protections, we continue this
trend."
Humans are unlikely to
get these viruses directly
from horses; however, mos-
quitoes can bite infected

umbrella of the county.
"We receive $8,000 from
the city and the state matches
it," Miner said.
He places excess state
funds into a reserve ac-
count, through which the
new truck and sprayer were
purchased.
Regarding the local mos-
quito population, Miner said
counts from Florida A&M
University indicate a few
mosquitoes, but nothing that
requires treatment, yet.

Legendary country music star Gene Watson
performed for a packed house as the finale
of the 51st annual Watermelon Festival in
Chipley June 23. He was headliner for the
festival that included activities for pretty much
everybody.
Like most good parties, revelry started
early. With the Watermelon Festival, the party
got warmed up Friday night at the Northwest
Florida Campground, with a concert by the
Run'd Off bluegrass band. Dune Buggy the
Clown was there to coordinate watermelon-
rolling contests and to entertain the children
with balloon tying and his signature clownish
antics. Festival Chairman Colby Peel chatted
up the crowd, while former chairman Judge
Perry Wells showed off the event to new-
found relatives visiting from out-of-town.

Friday night to open Beauty queens were in abundance at
throughout Chipley last weekend.


Saturday, June 23, started early, with some
folks gathering at the Washington-Holmes
Tech Center for a 7:30 a.m. 5,000-meter run
and others at the Panhandle Shrine Club for
a pancake breakfast fund-raiser. Some folks
wandered through rows of antique cars lining
Hwy. 90 across from the Washington County
Ag Center at the annual car show.
Some folks slept in, starting their fun with
the 10 a.m. parade through downtown. If
Chipley was founded because of railroading,
it's only fitting that a train would show up for
the town's 51st annual Watermelon Festival.
The parade was split in two and delayed for
about five minutes as a freightliner chugged
through town. Folks lining Church Street
weren't bored. Shriners in funny cars kept
the crowd entertained as they waited for the
parade to progress.
After the parade, the crowd descended
upon the Ag Center for more fun. Hot as it

was - temperatures were in the 90s - folks
wandered through more than 30 food and
craft vendors, and accompanied children to the
petting zoo, carnival rides and watermelon-
themed contests, like seed-spitting and melon
rolling. Most folks stopped first to pick up a
free slice of watermelon from the Kiwanis
Club, which was cold and refreshing.
New to the festival this year was an art
show and sale, sponsored by the Washington
County Arts Council.
The festival's highlight was the watermelon
auction. According to Judy Corbus, extension
agent festival committee member, Waste
Management's Jeff Massey bought the biggest
melon, an 80-pounder, for $700. As always,
David Corbin handled the auction.
The festival wrapped up with a dance back
at the Panhandle Shrine Club.

Book on local Civil

War action released


The latest book from area
writer and historian, Dale
Cox will be of interest to lo-
cal history buffs. It explores
the history of the 1864 Bat-
tle of Marianna and the re-
lated raid by Union soldiers
through Walton, Holmes,
Jackson and Washington
counties in more detail than
any previous publication.
The Battle of Marianna,
Florida is the newest publi-
cation, and the first national
release for the Two Egg na-
tive.
The book is a dramatic
expansion of Cox's earlier
narrative, "The West Flori-
da War," and includes pre-
viously unpublished detail
and eyewitness accounts of
the Civil War battle fought
in the streets of Marianna.
The book also devotes
chapters to related Civil
War activities in Northwest
Florida, including skir-
mishes at Eucheeanna and
Campbellton, the Battle of
Vernon, and provides a de-
tailed account of extensive
"raiding" that took place
along the route of the mili-
tary movement.
According to Cox, the
Battle of Marianna took
place Sept. 27, 1864, at the
culmination of the deepest
penetration of Confeder-
ate Florida by Union troops
during the entire Civil War.
"The encounter resulted in
the bloodiest day in the his-

His grandparents are Al and

economic damage that im-
pacted four modern North-
west Florida counties for
more than 50 years."
Cox said he wrote the
book to help bring the true
story of the battle to life
and expand common under-
standing of what happened
in the clashes between
Union and Confederate sol-
diers leading up to and fol-
lowing the engagement.
The book examines the
battle and related events
from all perspectives and
is the only book in print
detailing the history of the
1864 raid.
In addition to providing
an expanded history of the
battle and the related raid,
the book includes detailed
listings of casualties, partic-
ipants and a wealth of other
historical and genealogical
information.

Cooked or

not, green

beans are

delicious,

nutritious
Whether you call them
green beans or string beans,
these long beans are great to
eat, cooked or uncooked.
Green beans are picked
while still immature and
the inner bean is just be-
ginning to form. They are
.one of only a few varieties
of beans that may be eaten
fresh. They are usually deep
emerald green in color and
come to a slight point at ei-
lther end. They contain tiny
seeds within their thin pods.
Green beans are low in
calories, about 50 calories
for a whole cup. They are an
excellent source of vitamin
C, vitamin K and manga-
nese. They are also a very
good source of vitamin A,
dietary fiber, potassium, fo-
*lic acid and iron. If that's not
enough, green beans are a
.good source of magnesium,
.thiamin, riboflavin, copper,
calcium, phosphorous, pro-
tein, omega-3 fatty acids
and niacin.
The vitamin K in green
beans can help keep your
,bones strong, as the vita-
:min K has a substance that
hlielps to anchor calcium to
your bones. The vitamin A
-and folic acid (a B vitamin)
-can help to keep your heart
hliealthy, and the vitamin C
-pitches in to help your heart
-and your immune system.
Green beans are a very
good source of iron. Boost-
*ing iron stores with green
beans is a good idea, es-
pecially because, in com-
Iparison; to ted meat, a well-
iknown source of iron, green
beanss provide iron for a lot
less calories and are fat-
�free.
While green beans are
;typically referred to as
.string beans, many varieties
Mo longer actually feature
'the fibrous string that runs
down the length of the earli-
er varieties. Green beans are
also commonly known as
snap beans. Haricots verts
are French green beans that
are very thin and very tender
and are wonderful in salads.
Green beans are in the
same family as shell beans,
such as pinto beans, black
-beans and kidney beans.
Green beans and other
,beans, such are kidney
beans, navy beans and black
beans are all known scientif-
;ically as Phaseolus vulgaris.
,They are all referred to as
'"common beans," probably
4'owing to the fact that they
-all derived from a common
.bean ancestor that originat-
ed in Peru. From there, they
,were spread throughout
South and Central America
'by migrating Indian tribes.
They were introduced


into Europe around the 16th
century by Spanish explor-
ers returning from their voy-
ages to the New World, and
subsequently were spread
through many other parts
of the world by Spanish and
Portuguese traders.
Today, the largest com-
mercial producers of fresh
green beans include the
United States, China, Japan,
Spain, Italy and France.

tered dietitian and chef with

2007 Global Mission Team from the First Baptist Church of Orlando, working at The Baptist College of Florida
in Graceville.


For the past seven years,
Global Mission Teams from
the First Baptist Church of
Orlando, have played a ma-
jor part in the reconstruc-
tion, remodeling, and mis-
sions efforts at The Baptist
College of Florida (BCF).
They arrive on campus each
year around the second or
third week of June with a
group of 30 to 50 members
offering a helping hand and
praying over what God is
doing at BCF.
This year was no differ-
ent, as workers from five
to 80 years old arrived for
what they call their unique
"Sweat Equity Mission
Trip." The BCF mission
trip is called that because
of the incredible amount of
hard work, sweat, and love
that is poured into the col-


lege during the week long
trip.
Team leader and Global
Impact Pastor Bill Mitchell
has spent 15 years on staff
at FBC and together with
his wife, Greta, has led and
participated in the 75,000
labor hours the church has
given to the school over the
past seven years. Part of
those ministry hours were
preparing for incoming stu-
dents studying for Christian
service by building new fa-
cilities, painting, pressure
washing, cleaning, and re-
modeling.
The vision of FBC is
simple - volunteer construc-
tion workers, electricians,
teachers, Sunday school
workers, worship leaders,
moms, dads, grandparents,
and young people, from all


walks of life, coming to-
gether for one purpose - to
bring glory to God and see
lost people saved.
They believe their work
at BCF has a ripple effect.
As they work doing things
the school would normally
have to pay to have done,
the money saved on labor
and supplies can now be
used preparing more men
and women for service and
sending more students and
faculty on mission trips
throughout the world.
Entire families take part
in this opportunity, and
lifelong friendships have
been made with each other
as well as with the fac-
ulty, staff, and students of
the college. To date, the
FBC group has converted
McRae/Morrow Hall into


office spaces/classrooms,
tiled dorms, worked in the
downtown center, has been
instrumental in building the
first Shepherd's Cottage in
Heritage Village, remod-
eled and cleaned multiple
apartments, painted and
made repairs in the Clark
House and Cypress Church
in Heritage Village, and
helped remodel Lake Vista
Dining, among many other
projects.
This year the team did
their annual cleaning of the
Assembly Center, added a
new office space in the Mu-
sic Department, and gutted
two apartments in prepara-
tion for remodeling.

The Lord has blessed me
in so many different ways, I
really can't count them. I say
that because as I sat down to
begin to write, I began to re-
member the many different
places that I have been able
to celebrate the birthday of
this great land in which we
live, "America."
Other than to be in Heav-
en with my Lord, I would
not want to live in any other
land. Even with all the so-
cial problems, political cor-
ruption, and a media sys-
tem that is very biased and
actually very corrupt in its
reporting, I still believe we
live in one of the greatest
countries on the face of this
beautiful earth.
Just to name a few, I've
been able to witness fire-
works from the banks of
Lake Michigan, the great
Smoky Mountains, the hill-
sides of Dalton, Georgia
while traveling with a youth
group, from the coast of the
great Atlantic Ocean, and
the Gulf of Mexico, and
even in the United King-
dom of our mother country,
England.
This year I'm excited,
not only to be a spectator,
as I was in 2005, but this
year, able to be involved in
the "God and Country Cel-
ebration" sponsored by the
Holmes County Ministerial
Association here in Boni-
fay. As I shared last year, in
all the fire works displays
that I have witnessed, in-
cluding Disney World and
Dollywood, Bonifay knows
how to do fireworks and do
them right!
When you leave, you
know you have seen fire-
works at their very best.
And though it is the best
fireworks display, bar none,
there is so much more.
The churches of Holmes
County and surrounding
area come together, on a
Sunday afternoon, this year
on July 1, not only to light
up the sky in celebration of
the birthday of this great na-
tion, but also to share God's
love and the salvation mes-
sage, as our forefathers I
believed envisioned, when
they sacrificed everything
to bring their families here.
We celebrate the bless-
ings from the Lord on this
great nation with awesome
music, programs, food,
games for the children and
the "God and Country" pre-
sentation, which is given to
the community without no
cost, except your presence
and appreciation. There will
be donation boxes through-
out the fair grounds, so if
you feel so led, you can help
offset some of the expense
and feel as though you are
part of making it all happen,
and it will be greatly appre-
ciated, as we all watch your
money go up in smoke.
By the way, the gates
open at the Fairgrounds in
Bonifay at 4 p.m., Sunday,


From the


Heart

Tim Hall

July 1, and games, music
and food are there as long
as they last. But you know
what I think is the best part
of this event? It's the people
who are behind the scenes
making it all happen. It's
the local Ministerial Asso-
ciation which is made up
of many different churches
of many different faiths, or
denominations, coming t6-
gether for our God and our
country, as we should.
I know that most of those
who will be represented
there do not hold to the
same theology that I do, and
I'm sure they believe they
are the ones who are right,
as I believe I am. But we
know we all have One per-
son in common, Whom we
love and desire to serve, and
that is our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ. And we also
know it is because of Chris-
tians like us, who came be-
fore us, with His blessings
upon them that have made
this country the great coun-
try that it is.
We are also reminded of
the time that John came to
Jesus very upset, because
someone who he did not
know was basically preach-
ing in the name of Jesus, and
John came to Jesus desir-
ing that He would shut him
up. But Jesus said to John
"Forbid him not: for he that
is not against us is for us"
(Luke 9:49-50 KJV).
From these words of
Christ is where I believe the
local Ministerial Associa-
tion gets its thrust. We de-
sire that Satan and the evil
that is out to destroy this
. world arid the testimony of
Christ know that there is a
great force, though we go
by many names, coming
together in His name, not
only once a year, but 365
days a year to lift up His
name above all names. God
has truly blessed America;
May America bless God, by
repenting of our sins.

Heart of Tim Hall, Senior
Pastor, Gully Springs Bap-
tist Church in Bonifay. Call

Acclaimed actor brings 'The Sermon on the M . . Chipley


Mary Paramore/WCN-HCTA

Enjoying Camp Victory
Ten-year-old Jesse Slay from Ponce de Leon buys a
snow cone from Camp Victory staff. He attended the
June 25-30 session and was promised a week of tropical
fun by camp staff. His mother, Sandy Hougland, was
as excited about Slay's week at camp as he was. "As
a child I always wanted to go to camp," she said. She
said her church, First Baptist Church of Ponce de Leon,
helped sponsor Slay's week at camp. Camp Victory, a
Christian, non-denominational camp has been in con-
tinuous operation since 1961.

Chipley's First Presby-
terian Church brought ac-
claimed actor Frank Run-
yeon to town to present his
one-man play, "The Sermon
on the Mount," June 23. He
performed Saturday eve-
ning in the sanctuary.
"Not many people would
dare to bring a soap opera
star into their hometown,"
he told Barbara Russell,
who invited him to per-
form in Chipley as a fund-
raiser for the church. "Your
reputation will never be the
same."
Runyeon set the stage
not by adopting an accent
fraught with "thou" and
"thus", but by assigning
audience members roles to
adopt in their minds, to help
them connect with Biblical
times.
Once complete, Runyeon
was in ancient Antioch, in a
home filled with sheep-herd-
ers, seamstresses, tax col-
lectors, jewelry makers and
bakers, and he himself was
Jesus' disciple, Matthew. In
character, he explained that
there "is too much tension


The play depicted Mat-
thew sharing Jesus' word
to new believers and
skeptics.


with Jews who do not be-
lieve Jesus is the Messiah to
meet in the synagogue."
The play depicted Mat-
thew sharing Jesus' word
to new believers and skep-
tics. Matthew, according
to Biblical accounts, was
witness to Jesus' Sermon
on the Mount. His modern
audience was faced with
the same decision the real
Matthew's audiences did: to
believe or not to believe.
After the presentation,
Runyeon took questions
from the audience and
shared his views about neg-
ative and positive messages
communicated through tele-
vision and movies.
The actor is best known
for playing Steve Andro-
poulous, the love interest of
Meg Ryan's Betsy on "As
the World Turns," as well as
for playing recurring roles
on "L.A. Law," "Another
World," "Falcon Crest" and
"Melrose Place."

The, father's role has changed over the past few decades
and the good father in today's society must wear many hats.
We no longer think of today's family as a father that just works"
outside the home and thp mother as the one who manages the,
home responnsit: litie ,"ar the chlilre?. ': 2 , maiy rbrit' '
both work outside of the home, and the father that shares .-
Sthe home chores and responsibilities
A wins the love and admiration of his
family. A father requires nothing more.
from his children than their love, respect,
and their honest effort to be -the best
that they can be. Father's teach by
their example, and qualities such as
kindness, honesty, integrity and love of,
God and family, can all be passed down
.1 to their children. The love that fathers
have for their children is. a gift from God,.
and fathers who express their love to
their children are double blessed when
they hear their children say in return, "I
love you too, Dad."
As kind as a father is to his children, so kind is the Lord to
those who honor him.
