Lewis gets life in pilon for murder


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
afelsberg@chipleypaper.com
Amanda Lewis of Esto was
sentenced to life in prison Mon-
day afternoon. Lewis was given
the mandatory sentence for first-
degree murder of her daughter,
Adrianna Elaine Hutto, in an
above-ground swimming pool
in Esto.
Lewis was convicted in Feb-
ruary of murder and aggravated
child abuse. Much of the case
rested on the testimony of Lewis'
son, A.J. Hutto, and forensic
evidence. Public Defender Walter
Lewis filed a motion for a new
trial prior to sentencing, but the
motion was denied by Circuit
Judge Allen Register.
Register then sentenced Lewis

to life for the murder. There are
just two sentences for first-degree
murder, life in prison and the
death penalty. The prosecution


did not seek the death penalty.
In addition, Register sentenced
Lewis to 30 years to run con-
secutively for the child abuse


conviction.
The story started on Aug. 8,
2007. Holmes County Sheriff
Dennis Lee said that on August
8 deputies and EMS were called
to 3343 1st Avenue South in Esto
with a report of a child downing.
Upon reaching the residence,
a double-wide manufactured
home, officers and EMTs found
the victim, Adrianna Elaine
Hutto, in an above-ground swim-
ming pool. Emergency personnel
worked on the victim at the scene
and in an AirHeart helicopter
on the way to Panama City, but
efforts to revive the child were
futile, Lee said.
On Sept. 5, 2007, deputies ar-
rested Amanda Elaine Lewis

History of county medicine remembered


Old hospital reunion
draws large crowd

DONNA DYKES
Staff Writer
A headache wouldn't have
had a chance of developing into
a serious malady Saturday night
at the Ag Center in Chipley.
Even the common cold might
have had second thoughts about
being in that room with more
than 145 medical people.
There were nurses, doctors,
EMTs, surgeons, and lab em-
ployees enjoying the reunion
for employees of the old Wash-
ington County Hospital. Also
present were members of the
hospital board, especially Mrs.
John (Lillian) Hardin. "I was the
(hospital's) first woman board
member," she explained.
The program began with the
presentation of the colors by
Chipley JROTC Color Guard
composed of Leonard Wisner,
Emily Woodham, Michelle
Mastison, Josh McKane and
Matthew Moody.
Dr. James Clemmons gave
the welcome and led the pledge
of allegiance. Soloist Cindy
Voorhees presented a patri-
otic number, and the Rev. Price
Wilson gave the invocation and
grace.
There were readings and re-
membrances following dinner,

and ARNP Mark Gamey recog-
nized Chipley physicians who
graduated from Chipley High
School. Former Judge Perry
Wells gave a history of the old
.hospital which brought quite a
few laughs from the audience.
After another song by Voor-


hies, guests were asked to check
the memory book and find the
poem, "Why do I Believe in
the Past? It begins "Why do I
believe in the past? It brought us
here today. The past was never
perfect, At least it seemed that
way." At this time, a moment of


silence was shared to honor the
125 employees "who have left
this earth but remain engraved,
in our hearts."
Dr. Clemmons presented
a plaque to the family of Dr.

before his death. They are, from left, McKenzie Glaze, Benjamin Craven for his 42-plus years as a Wash-

There also are five grandsons, Henry III, Benjamin, honoree's son, Dr. Ben Craven Jr. of Dothan, Ala.,
Mark. lTrystan and Michael Jr. was there to witness the presentation.


HOSPITAL
Continued from page 1A
Herry Angus McKinnon
Knowles, M.D., who died
M.ia 20,2000.
He married the former
Gloria Gerber in 1971 and
moved to Chipley perma-
nently in 1974. Gloria,
who attended the reunion
with their three children
and eight grandchildren,
accepted the plaque Satur-
day night.
A plaque also was pre-
sented to Dr. James Ben-
jamin Craven, MD, native
and life-long resident of
Washington County, who
practiced in Chipley for
42 years and five months
while on the staff of Wash-
ington County Hospital
(now Northwest Florida
Community Hospital). He
reduced his hospital re-
sponsibilities in 1998 and
retired in December 2007.
Craven graduated from
Chipley High School in
1947. His formal education
in medicine was at the Uni-


versity of Miami where he
received his MD in 1962.
He did a year's residency
in Columbus, Ga. in 1963.
During that time, he met
his wife, Virginia. After
a short time in DeFuniak
Springs, he opened a prac-
tice in Chipley in August
1964. Mrs. Craven worked
as director of nursing for
20 years.
The Cravens have one
son, Benjamin Craven Jr.,
born in 1964, who has fol-
lowed in his father's foot-
steps. The younger man
now lives and practices in
Dothan, Ala.
A scholarship fund has
been set up in the name of
Dr. Ben Craven and contri-
butions may be made at a
Wachovia Bank (see para-
graph later in story).
Norbett J. Wegmann,
who lives in Wausau, gave
30 years of his medical
practice to Washington
County. Clemmons had a
plaque for Wegmann Sat-
urday night.
He was working at Sun-


land in the mid-to-latter
part of 1968 when he began
seeing patients part-time to
help Dr. Craven. Because of
the patient load, he quit his
job at Sunland and opened
a practice in Chipley in
January 1969. He remained
on the medical staff until
April 1999. When he had
a stroke in early April, he
made the decision to close
his office.
The reunion committee
is composed of Dr. Clem-
mons ,Mark Garney,ARNP,
Delores J. Barnosky, Becky
Anderson Cousson, Mag-
gie Davis, Ann Harden,
Sallie Johnson, Bobbie
Kent and Marlene J. Ray.
The scholarship fund
named for Dr. James B.
Craven, MD is accept-
ing contributions. Several
families have already made
memorial donations to the
fund to help a promising
student enter the field of
medicine. Those wishing
to contribute to the scholar-
*ship fund may contact any
of the reunion commit-


tee members. Donations
may also be made to the
WCH Reunion Account
at any Wachovia Bank.
Specify "for the scholar-
ship fund."
Anyone who took digital
pictures Saturday night and
would like to share them
with others may email them
to btbw63@bellsouth.net
or contact one of the com-
mittee members listed in
the memory book for other
arrangements.
Much of the time be-
tween registration and the
meal was spent in greeting
former co-workers and dis-
cussing old times. Henry
and Dillie Day of Five
Points were seen talking to
Ida B. Hutchins and Becky
Carr while Dillie affixed
his name tag.
Lola Clark, LPN from
1969-1984 and 1986-1998,
shared a table with a 1964
employee, Evelyn Mc-
Farland, who was PBX
operator and nurses' aide,
and Shirley Norton, LPN,
1973-2001.

CRIME
Continued from page 1A
initially for aggravated
manslaughter and aggra-
vated child abuse for alleg-
edly drowning her 7-year-
old daughter.
Lee said that investiga-
tion of the pool, the sur-
rounding area, injuries to
the victim and the pre-
liminary autopsy report by
then-Medical Examiner Dr.
Charles Siebert confirmed
eyewitness testimony that
Lewis had drowned her
daughter. In addition, the
arrest report stated that
the mother also apparently
sent her 5-year-old son "to
find Adrianna floating in
the pool."
"It's so hard to believe
that any mother would do
this," said Lee at the time.
"It's not within our nature
to suspect a mother of do-
ing this."
Jurors convicted Lewis,
28, on Feb. 18 of first-de-
gree murder and aggravated
child abuse for drowning
her 7-year-old daughter,
Adrianna Hutto, on Aug. 8
in the family pool in Hol-
mes County. The four men
and two women on the jury
deliberated for about two
hours and 10 minutes.
Assistant State Attorney
Larry Basford told jurors
Lewis didn't intend to kill
her daughter but that it was
a malicious punishment
that went too far. He said
Lewis had tried everything
with her hyperactive and
headstrong daughter, and
"dunking" her in the pool
was supposed to be an ef-
fort to "get her attention."
"This is not a case where
the defendant took her out
to the pool to kill that little
girl," Basford said. "She
did it intending to punish
her."
He ended his closing ar-
gument by playing two sec-
tions of a taped interview
Lewis' son,A.J. Hutto, then
6, gave to investigators the
day his sister died. A.J. said


his mother killed his sister
by holding her face and
bending her backward into
the pool.
Lewis' son, A.J. Hutto,
told two versions of the
event on the stand.
A.J. told authorities
Lewis drowned Adrianna
as punishment for spray-
ing a cleaner in the house
and then leaving the yard.
He said Lewis "dunked"
Adrianna the first time
in an aboveground pool.
When Adrianna got out,
she left the yard and walked
to a nearby park. A.J. said
Lewis took her back to the
pool and forced her into
the water while Adrianna
screamed.
Public Defender Walter
Smith said the more likely
scenario was the one A.J.
described in his testimony
- that Adrianna had tried
to climb over the edge of
the pool and slipped in.
Lewis told jurors she did
not kill her daughter.
"I was able to reach far
enough to reach her foot,"
Lewis, 28, said about find-
ing her 7-year-old daugh-
ter's lifeless body Aug. 8
in the family pool. Lewis
is charged with first-degree
murder and aggravated
child abuse in the death of
Adrianna Hutto. She said
she tried to perform CPR
on Adrianna but got no
response.
Basford got her to repeat
for jurors a phrase she had
used to co-workers earlier
in the year when Adrianna
had frustrated her. "I said,
'I could've killed her,'"
Lewis said.
Pensacola Medical Ex-
aminer Andrea Minyard,
who reviewed the autopsy
of Adrianna, told jurors
bruises on Adrianna's face
were consistent with a
handprint, but that was not
the only thing that could
have caused those marks.
A.J. told investigators
Lewis held her hand over
Adrianna's face and dunked
her in the pool.

Two Men, Two Axes,

Two Trees


A story I heard once
goes like this. Two men
were each given an axe
and an hour to chop down
a tree. Two axes, two men,
two trees. One man took
his axe and began to hack
at his tree with feverish
panic. Only an hour for an
entire tree!
The second man, notic-
ing that the edge of his axe
was dull, sat down and
began to sharpen his blade.
For thirty minutes the man
honed the edge of his axe.
At the end of the hour, only
one tree had been felled.
The man whose tree had
fallen turned to the other
and said, "If I knew I had
but an hour to cut down a
tree I would spend the first
thirty minutes sharpening
the axe."
There's a moral to this
story; a lesson to take note
of: Preparation is not wast-
ed time.
We can get so tocused
on what's ..:ppo.cdi to get
done, the end results, that
we foret to p:'oparc. We
get busy, we move slightly>
slower than the speed of
light, so it's not too hard
to imagine that we forego
the prep time and jump
straight into hacking away
at the job.
Not only do we begin
hacking away, but we miss
out on the joy of prepa-
ration. There's more to
the story of the man and
his axe. After getting his
assignment, he inspects
the tree; puts his hand on
the rough bark. He walks
around the tree looking for
weak spots, for knots.
Then before taking his
first swing, he inspects his
axe. "Too dull," he thinks
to himself as he runs his
thumb along the axe's edge.
He plops down, with his
back against the very tree
he has to chop down, pulls
out his honing stone, and
begins to sharpen.
The man uses the down
time to think. To think
about the job and the best
way to go about it. To think
about how good dinner
will be after work. Then he
starts whistling. The man


One Word
Andrew Hollinger

is enjoying himself. He's
found joy in his prepara-
tion.
After 15 minutes, he
inspects his work. "Not
yet sharp enough," and it's
back to the grindstone. An-
other fifteen minutes and he
looks down the blade of his
axe. "Very nice." He runs
his thumb along the edge.
A thin red line forms on his
thumb. "Perfect. Now I can
chop away."
But preparation is a pain.
It's valuable time that could
be spent working on the job
and gaining experience.
Having the experience is
the important thing, any-
way, right? So just skip
the prep.
Experience, though, is
not what you get when the
job is done. It's not what
you get when you are doing
the job. Experience doesn't
come trying to prepare ei-
ther. Experience is the sum
of everything. Preparation
to the job's completion.
We've got two ways to
do any kind of job. We can
hack away at it with what
we've got. Stress and sweat
it out. Or we can spend
the first half preparing
for what's going to come.
Sharpening our axes.
Whistling while we
work.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Defends Bonifay
Fire Department
To the Editor,
I greatly resent the
comments made by the
mayor at the last city coun-
cil meeting regarding the
Bonifay Fire Department
and I take personal offense
at the mayor's lack of re-
spect for this outstanding
department.
Mr. Mayor, I have vol-
unteered my time on the
fire department for over
three years and you do not
even know who I am. Not
once in three years have
you come to the fire depart-
ment and introduced your-
self and given me a pat on
the back for my volunteer
service to this city. Other
city and county commis-
sioners have taken the time
to do this.
I am a decorated re-
tired Air Force commis-
sioned officer who served
his country for 26 years.
I worked for the state of
Florida for over 10 years.
I am also a state-certi-
fied firefighter. After retir-
ing in Bonifay five years
ago, I have volunteered in
the community helping the
elderly as well as the fire
department.
I can assure you that this
is the best fire department
that the city of Bonifay has
ever had. Mr. Mayor, do
you realize that over two
thirds of the Bonifay fire-
fighters are state certified?


Do you realize that we have
four state certified EMT's
and one paramedic on the
department?
I would venture to say
that not many volunteer
fire departments in Florida
can boast that kind of ex-
pertise.
We have recently ob-
tained new firefighting
equipment and protective
clothing thanks to one of
our firefighters volunteer-
ing his time to write numer-
ous state and federal grants.
Our brand new $300,000
fire truck should be here
by September of this year
again thanks to a federal
grant written by one of our
own firefighters.
Mr. Mayor, you may
not respect this fire de-
partment, but the residents
of Bonifay and Holmes
County sure appreciate that
we are there to help them in
time of need.
You need to carry a fire
and police radio scanner
and come to some of our
calls and observe first hand
the good work that your
departments are doing.
Just last week, we saved
a man's life in Bonifay at
the Wachovia Bank. I'll
bet you didn't know a thing
about it.
All EMS units were
busy on other calls and a
911 call reported a man
not breathing. We had 4 or
5 firefighters and our Chief
there within two minutes
and stabilized the individu-


al and provided oxygen un-
til the ambulance arrived.
We also saved a woman's
house and possessions in a
fire on Northside Drive one
morning last week. Due to
a quick response and ex-
pert firefighting skills, we
were able to keep damage
to a minimum. You can
bet those two individuals
appreciated having such a
dedicated group of volun-
teers available.
Judging from the 350
or more calls we receive
every year, I think there are
a lot more grateful citizens
in the city of Bonifay.
Mr. Mayor, you com-
plain that we waste a few
gallons of gas by going
on unnecessary calls.
When it comes to saving


someone's life or house, a
timely response is critical.
We cannot wait for a law
enforcement officer to ar-
rive on scene to verify that
someone is trapped in a car
wreck or that someone's
house is actually burning
when an alarm has been
activated.
Mr. Mayor, we are an
all-volunteer fire depart-
ment. We spend our own
gas money to respond in
our personal vehicles. We
volunteer our time for nu-
merous community projects
and activities. We don't do
this for the recognition
but it would be nice if we
received a little respect and
appreciation from you.

Myers murder trial underway i


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
afelsberg @ uchipleyparHl.vollt
The prosecution opened
its murder case against
Bobby Myers Monday
afternoon, with Assistant
State Attorney Luke T, 1i
li\ inll out a case for con
eviction for the killing.
M \erp is charL'ed with
second-degree felony mur-
der in the killing of his
daughter's boyfriend, Wen-
dell "Butch" Kirch.
Defense Attorney Roy
Lake of Bonifay waived
opening remarks until the
defense presents its its case,
which Lake said should be
sometime Wednesday.
The shooting in north
Holmes County took place
on Jan. 23, 2007. The Fri-
day before that Kirch, an
Esto volunteer firefighter,
and Myers' daughter, Wan-
da Gilley, had a fight. Tay-
lor said the two made up by
the following Tuesday.
Taylor said that over the
weekend, however, Myers
heard "through the grape-
vine" that his daughter


Jay helsberg/WUN

allowing evidence in the murder trial of his client,
Bobby Myers.


had been abused by Kirch
and went looking for him.
This was despite a call
from a Kirch relative that
the couple had made up.
Taylor said that when Gil-
ley got home from work at
about 9 p.m. on Jan. 23 her
father pulled into her yard
at 1563 Cotton Circle at the


same time. Kirch walked
toward Myers, and Taylor
said Kirch got down on his
knees and apologized about
the fight. Taylor said that
Myers then pulled out a .38
,caliber revolver and shot
Kirch in the neck.
Gilly then took Kirch to
a nearby residence where


n Bonifay
Holmes County EMS was
called, but Kirch died of his
wounds.
Taylor said that wit-
nesses will show that Gil-
ley begged someone to
call 911, and saying that
"Daddy just shot Butch."
Taylor said the pros-
ecution would also show
that Myers left the scene
without showing any con-
cern for Kirch or calling
for help. Taylor said that
Myers stopped at two other
locations to drop off his
guns, and made no mention
of the shooting.
Before the trial began,
Circuit Judge Allen Reg-
ister rejected a motion by
the prosecution to suppress
evidence that Kirch had
3.8 milligrams of amphet-
amine in his system the
night of the shooting. Reg-
ister said that if the defense
provided a foundation of
evidence that Kirch was
more aggressive than nor-
mal on methamphetamine
and that this was known,
then the evidence can be
presented.

New Holmes County coach stresses


hard work to rebuild program


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
afelsberg@chipleypaper.com
New Holmes County
High School Coach Carlan
Martin brought an old-fash-
ioned lunch pail to Bonifay
Kiwanis Club Thursday.
To hear him talk, that old
lunch bucket will symbol-
ize the work ethic he wants
to instill in his Blue Devil
football players.
"I'm a little old fash-
ioned, and I have a blue-
collar work ethic," Martin
said. "Discipline is a big
part of any successful pro-
gram."
The Holmes County
graduate was hired to re-
place Andy Howell as head
coach. The Blue Devils
were 1-8 in 2007, follow-
ing a 1-9 2006 season.
Martin, a Westville na-
tive, is a graduate of HCHS
who was a small, but tough
two-way player for the
Blue Devils.
He was also a rodeo
rider when he was young,
and joked that he would
have no problem playing at
Memorial Field in Bonifay,
also home of the Bonifay
Kiwanis Club Northwest
Florida Championship Ro-
deo.
"When I was young it
was known as the greenest
100 yards in Northwest
Florida," he said. "I want to
restore the pride of playing
there."
He walked on at Florida
State, where he said Bobby
Bowden moved him to
wide receiver pretty much
so he would survive play-
ing. From there it was off to
Northeast Oklahoma A&M
Junior College, where he
played on the 1980 na-
tional championship team.
He finished his degree at

brought an old-fashioned lunch pail (center) to Bonifay Kiwanis Club. They hope
to instill an old-fashioned work ethic in HCHS football players.


Northeast Oklahoma State
University.
From there it was into
coaching, including stints
-at Crestview and Marianna.
Martin was head baseball
coach at Marianna for the
last five years, but jumped
at the chance to come home
and coach football.
"Football has been my
passion," he said, and he
hopes that passion rubs off
on his players. So far, he
and his coaching staff like
what they see.
"It's a work in progress,"
he said. "They understand
where we're coming from
at this stage of the game.
One thing Martin em-
phasizes is weight training.
He was on his way back
to school to prepare for a
weightlifting competition
that afternoon.
"We are working as


hard as possible in the
weight room," Martin said.
"We have been at several
weightlifting meets, and
they are a good place to
see where we measure up
to other schools. There is a
direct correlation between
weight training and success
on the football field.
"The kids are buying
into it and they are work-
ing hard."
Martin said that strength
and conditioning train-
ing would be important,
because Holmes County
doesn't have many large
players coming back.
"They told me that at
Holmes County you need
to be ready to win with 160
lb. guards," Martin said.
"We have to win with what
we've got. We need to get
the attitude back that we
will hit you."


Holmes County finishes
spring practice at the spring
tournament in.Vernon on
May 15. The Blue Devils
will play a half against
Graceville, and Chipley
and Vernon will play the
second half.
The season opens at
the Walton Kickoff Clas-
sic in DeFuniak Springs

opener is Sept. 5 against
Jay. Other home games are

view (District, Sept. 26),

Baseball in wartime project
Gary Bedingfield is the editor of a totally not-for-profit
website aimed at remembering and honoring baseball
players who served with the armed forces during the
war.
At a time when baseball played a far more significant
role in the life of young men, thousands of people who
played baseball at all levels put down their gloves
and'bats and went off to fight for their country in far off
lands.
The Baseball in Wartime project remembers these gal-
lant young men. Whether they were professional, college,
amateur or high school players, their stories have a place
on the Baseball in Wartime website.
Anyone interested in helping with this research project
that is preserving the memories of North American ser-
vicemen in World War II can contact Bedington at Gary

land, Great Britain. Go to http://www.baseballinwartime.

Florida resident awarded high honor
Larry Perrin of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) was honored with the prestigious

Federation's (NWTF) annual Convention and Sport Show

Perrin, a resident of Crawfordsville, has spent more
than 30 years working tirelessly on the research and

Osceola subspecies wild turkey in the Everglades National

wild turkey in Holmes County.
The Mosby Award is named for Dr. Henry Mosby,
whose research with wild turkeys in the early 1900s set
the standard for their management.

Burton's Bristol victory is altogether fitting


MONTE DUTTON
Freedom Newswire
mdutton@gastongazette.com
BRISTOL, Tenn. It's ironic that on
the day one elder statesman bowed out,
his logical successor won the race.
Dale Jarrett's final Sprint Cup point
race ended ingloriously 37th place in
the Food City 500, 10 laps down but it
was significant because Jarrett has been an
important figure. He won a championship
(1999), 32 races and 16 poles.
He was the son of a champion, Ned Jar-
rett (1961, '65), who wound up following
in his father's footsteps in more than one
way. Dale Jarrett is stepping directly from
the driver's seat into the television booth,
where he will undoubtedly be much like
his father: forthright, self-deprecating and
gentlemanly.
Jeff Burton has an older brother, Ward,
who won the Daytona 500 in 2002. Like
Dale Jarrett, Jeff is a Southerner who,
unlike most stock-car racers, embraces
the qualities of a pillar of his community.
The community isn't his native South
Boston, Va. like most, he doesn't live in
his hometown anymore -- but rather the


transient world of the tracks in places like
Bristol, Martinsville, Talladega, Darling-
ton and, at the other extreme, Las Vegas.
Jarrett is fond of beginning statements
with, "I don't know that I would ..."
Burton naturally begins many para-
graphs, in response to questions, with "I
think" or "I heard." The significant trait
is that he uses the word "I." He's unafraid
of the first person, singular, which sets
him apart, like Jarrett, from most of his
peers.
Race drivers- and, for that matter, other
athletes -- habitually use "we" when they
mean "I." It's sort of the mandated bad
grammar of athletes who are so indoctri-
nated in the team concept that it becomes
a justification for violating the language.
It's possible for "we" to have a bad pit
stop, but "I" hit the wall.
Both men persist in the notion that
stock-car racing is "our sport." Tenured
sports tend toward "the." Racing's bur-
geoning growth hasn't reached "the"
stage.

Story number three in the top 10 Perry's Prattles


Story number three in
recounting the top 10 Per-
ry's Prattle for 2007.
The Prattler has kept
his original outline con-
veniently available for
review, and with some
shuffling, has generally
stayed on course with the
numbering system.
This recounting will
cover remarks and respons-
es that have come to me
during the last year, or in
recent months concerning
the prattle.
Each time I see my long-
time friend, Marvis Jett,
she gives her thanks for
some recent writing. She
especially liked the article
last year on the subject of
peas. The method of shell-
ing, preparing and season-
ing the important food item
rang a familiar bell with
Marvis, as she experienced
the same things in her up-
bringing.
She encouraged me to
send a copy of my writing
to Leon Hale of The Hous-
ton Chronicle. His article
in the Texas newspaper,
entitled "Coming clean
about a mess of peas,"
prompted my interest in
writing on the matter. Leon
did not respond to my cor-
respondence!
My sister, Hazel Wells
Tison, who writes the Hap-
py Corner for the Holmes
County Times Advertiser,
is oneup on her brother in
that she has had one letter
to the editor of her paper
complimenting her writ-
ing skills. At this time,
the Prattler has had exactly
zero response with that
form of comment. Tele-


Perry's

Perry Wells '

phone calls, emails, letters
from readers, visits to our
home and approval from
those encountered in daily
activities, have been my
major source of encourage-
ment.
Hester and I have en-
joyed a visit to our home
during the last year from
Eugenia Johnson Come-
gys. She is a Washington
County native and is again
living in the county,-along
with husband, Wally. Her
visit was to purchase a
heritage book.
Genie, as she is known,
graduated from Holmes
County High School in
1945 along with Hester.
She has enjoyed many
wonderful experiences in
life and regrettably, her
story is one of many that
was not included in the
Washington County book.
Her father was associ-

ated with the Chipley Ban-
ner and the Holmes County
Advertiser. Genie and her
brother, Jim, worked for
both papers. One of her
jobs was folding and pre-
paring the Advertiser for
mailing.
The family moved to
Bonifayfor awhile, which
accounts for her graduation
from high school there.
After the visit, Genie
sent the following email:
"Perry and Hester, many
thanks for a wonderful vis-
it. Do hope I didn't over-
stay my welcome. Thanks
for the book. It was well
received-'Will be doing
some good reading in this
book,' says Wally. Thanks,
Perry for your writing to
keep Washington County
alive and interesting. Take
care, Genie."
An email response to
a recent column, which


mentioned words used in
the Wells' household in
years gone by, came from
Lynda Waller. Previous
mention has been made of
Lynda's friendship with my
two younger sisters, Muriel
and Gail, and the fact that
she recalls many visits to
our old home place.
Lynda supplied a glos-.
sary of words familiar to
her upbringing and most of
those mentioned were also
used in our family circle.
We ate 'supper' at night
instead of dinner, We had
an 'ice box' and a 'stove'
instead of a refrigerator
and range and our coffee
making was done with a
'percolator.' We delineated
between 'store bought'
and 'feed sack' dresses
and shirts. We also knew
the difference between a
'handmade' and factory
produced item. The expect-


ant mother was 'in a family
way' instead of the more
sophisticated descriptions
of today. Thanks Lynda for
these reminders. Thanks
also for the closing sen-
tence of your email, "Have
a good day, Judge."
My cousin, Mary Jean
Porter Davis, reports being
a regular reader and receiv-
ing enjoyment in reading
my column. Recently she
told me of forwarding the
writings on Hadacol and
hog killing to our mutual
cousin, Johnny Wells, in
Tampa.
Johnny responded with
an email and .told me of an
incident when he buried his
dad, John Wells', 10-quart
zinc bucket, which was to
be used at a hog killing. On
hog killing day he led an all
out search party away from
the area where the bucket
was buried. Even with this
deception, his dad hung his
foot in the exposed bucket
bail an took a fall. Johnny
commented that he was the
one that 'got scalded' at the
*hog killing that day.
Bill Mathis told me re-
cently of his pleasure in
reading the article con-
cerning Polk County, and
my association with Bill
Ruster. Bill and wife,
Cathy, came to Washing-
ton County soon after we
opened the Sears store
here 38 years ago. I recall
their catalog purchases of
motorcycle riding clothing
as both were cyclists in
those days. '
Reports from readers
of Perry's Prattle by the
younger generation are
always encouraging and

refreshing to me. Recent-
ly, Lele Brock Sausman,
daughter of Billy Brock
and Leola Craven Brock,
had kind comments for the
column. She is employed at
PAEC and spoke to me at
a recent Chamber of Com-
merce meeting.
Complimentary com-
ments on the 'prattle' were
passed on to me recently by
the Rev. Tim Owen, pastor
of Piney Grove Free Will
Baptist Church. Tim is a
year older than our third
son, Emory. His son, Jared,
is a student at the Free Will
Baptist College in Nash-
ville. He was assistant to
Coach Eric Smith of Poplar
Springs, where our fourth
son, Gordon, is assistant
principal. ,
. Remembering each and
every expression made
concerning the 'prattle, as
well as the repeated ap-
proval of the Heritage book
project is a desired goal of
mine. I know I can't do this
without keeping a written
record, and that doesn't
seem feasible.
Now that the Historical
Society Museum is open
each Thursday and Friday
from 10 a. m. 2 p.m., I
expect to spend more time
there and look forward to
meeting additional readers
of the 'prattle' and to greet
those who come to see the
wide array of artifacts on
display there.
Maybe one day a letter
to the editor will come my
way, but until then, I am
completely happy with
your comments, in what-
ever manner they come.
See you all next week.

Halley declares for sheriff


Two arrested for trying to steal copper wire


Two local men have
been arrested for attempt-
ing to steal copper wire.
The information was re-
ceived in a press release
from Chipley Police De-
partment.
"On Wednesday morn-
ing at approximately 1:30
a.m. two individuals from
Jackson County broke into
the Gulf Power yard,"
Chipley Police Chief Kevin
Crews said in the news
release.
"The suspects were
about to get away with 800
pounds of new copper wire


(above) until Officer David
Pettis with the Chipley Po-
lice Department arrived.
"Once on scene, at Gulf
Power, Officer Pettis saw
two subjects flee on foot
into a wooded area. With
the assistance of the Wash-
ington County Sheriff's
Office and the Washing-
ton County Corrections
K-9 tracking team, both
suspects were located and
arrested.
"These men and their
dogs basically tracked
these two thieves clear
across town. About 4 a.m.


the tracking team got hot
on the trail of the thieves
between Kate Smith School
and PAEC. Officers moved
in and made the arrest di-
rectly behind PAEC.
"It is very difficult to
track people through city
settings," Crews said.
"What a great job, done
well by all." Arrested for
burglary and grand theft
and resisting arrest without
violence:

C.E. "Gene" Halley of
Chipley has qualified to
run for the Democratic
nomination for Washington
County sheriff.
Halley retired from the
Florida Parole Commission
in November, 2007. He
had filled a position as pa-
role examiner since 2005,
which caused him to travel
extensively throughout the
Panhandle conducting ad-
ministrative hearings.
Halley, who spent sev-
eral years as chief deputy
with the Washington Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office, began
his long career in law en-
forcement in 1972 as spe-
cial agent for the FBI. The
Bureau gave him its Master
Police Instructor award in
recognition of his years of
teaching law enforcement
to various agencies.
He graduated from Flor-
ida State University in
1968 with a BS in Crimi-
nology, and immediately
joined the U.S. Army, serv-
ing in Vietnam as a platoon
and company commander.
Returning to Tallahassee
in 1971, Halley completed
his Master's in Criminol-
ogy and Higher Education
while working as an inves-
tigator with the FSU Police
Department.
Following his retirement
from the FBI on a Friday


Gene Halley
Gene Halley


in 1997, he began work-
ing in Washington County
the following Monday. He
continued as under sheriff
until 2005.
He served as president
of Chipley Kiwanis Club,
chairman of the Washing-
ton County Traffic Safety
Committee, and was Vice
President and board mem-
ber of Washington County
American Cancer Society.
He also was chairman
of the Washing'ton County
Tobacco-free Partnership,
chairman of the Board of


Directors for Vernon Place,
and was a mentor at Vernon
High School. Halley also
was involved in many other
school and civic organiza-
tions.
His second retirement
came in 2007 when, anx-
ious to get back to his roots,
he said he would like to
spend more time with fam-
ily and his community.
Halley was born in Alli-
ance, but his family has old
ties to Washington County.
His mother's family settled
on the Choctawhatchee
River in 1841 and estab-
lished Rook's Bluff Land-
ing. They later relocated in
the Miller's Ferry area.
Halley is a member of
First Baptist Church of
Chipley and has rejoined
the local Kiwanis Club.
"It takes more than a gun
and badge to be sheriff,"
Halley said. "Qualifica-
tions, experience and lead-
ership count!"
Halley can be reached at
home at 638-8695 and by
cell at 850-258-9720

Unique aircraft on display
at annual EAA Fly-in at
Tri-County Airport

JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
afelsberg@chipleypaper.com
BONIFAY Bad weather the Friday
before and high winds and low morning
temperatures on March 5 kept the
number of aircraft down at the annual
EAA Fly-In at Tri-County Airport in
Holmes County on County 162.
However, a good crowd was still on
hand to look over several unique
aircraft.
Jamie Pinto brought in what may
have been the highlight, his formerA
British Aircraft Corp. Jet Prevost Royal
Air Force jet trainer. Pinto joked he
painted it in U.S. Marine Corps colors
and markings "because I didn't want to
be shot down by accident."
Pinto said he found the aircraft in a
hanger in South Florida in March 2001.
After considerable restoration, the
aircraft now makes its rounds at various
aviation shows.
A Rolls-Royce Viper 202 engine
powers the Jet Prevost, which can reach
a top speed of 450 miles per hour. Pinto

'Cross canying Chuck'

is heading down State 90


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
afelsberg@chipleypape.com

Motorists along State 90 between
Marianna and Chipley were in for a treat
Friday as Chuck Johnson was trekking
along with his eight-foot white cross.
Johnson is known as "Cross Carrying
Chuck," and the Anaheim, Calif.,
native travels the nation to spread the
Gospel of Jesus Christ.
'Tm taking 90 all the way across the
Statee" Johnson said with a smile as he
lashed his cross to the top of this writer's
compact car to drive from Cottondale to
Chipley. Johnson is an expert at lashing
the cross, made of PVC material, to
nearly any type of vehicle and it took just
a few minutes before we were under way.
"It's been on trucks, cars, and even a
Harley Davidson," Johnson said.
Johnson bummed a ride because of
dark clouds ahead on Friday morning.
Weather dictates quite a bit of his itin-
erary. He travels across the northern
United States every summer and across
the south every winter.
He has been to all 48 states, some of
them several times. "I've never been to
Alaska or Hawaii, but we'll see," John-,
son said. Johnson began his ministry in
1987 after he received underwater bap-
tism at Crossroads Baptist Church in


California. Johnson said the call came
to his unique ministry, "and within a
week I had my first cross," he said.
It was made of wood and weighed 87
pounds, "and as I get older the crosses
get lighter." ,
The current model with its caster
wheel weighs just 9 pounds.
* "I build them all," he said. "I've had
a few break." He said PVC could be
brittle. As noted elsewhere on the Inter-
net, he has worn out more socks and
boots than someone could imagine.
Sleeping arrangements can also be
tricky in bad weather.
'A sleeping bag doesn't help much
when it rains," Johnson said. With rain

apparent it was a good idea to look for
better shelter. FortunatelyBarry Rock-
burn of Love in Action Ministries was
at the office and storehouse behind old
Chipley High School.
Rockburn remembered Johnson
from an earlier trek through Chipley
several years ago and quickly arranged
to put Johnson up at one of the com-
fortable apartments at the Washington
County Baptist Association building
that was once part of the now-defunct
Chipley Motel.
Once Johnson settled in, he soon
headed out to the streets of Chipley to
fellowship and to preach the Word of
Jesus Christ.


"The Church


at Ephesus"


Let me speak for just a
minute of an early church
you or I probably would
have attended had we lived
in that town. It was among
one of the best churches of
that era. The church is
named simply, "The
Church In Ephesus."
Jesus said of this church,
in Rev. 2:1-3; "To the angel
of the church in Ephesus,
write: the One who holds
the seven stars in His right
hand, the One who walks
among the seven golden
lamp stands, says this: I
know your deeds and your
toil and perseverance, and
that you cannot tolerate
evil men, and you put to
the test those who call
themselves apostles, and
they are not, and you found
them to be false; and you
have perseverance and
have endured for My
name's sake, and have not
grown weary."
Here is a church that
worked diligently and was
known for it's zeal and dis-
cernment.
They would have noth-
ing to do with false apos-
tles. It was biblically sound
and probably had strong
leaders, with many coura-
geous people willing to
take a stand in opposition
to wrong. They were zeal-
ous and firm and relentless
in their pursuit of truth. So
far, so good. Right?
However, all was not
well in the Ephesian
church. When Paul penned
his last comment to that
church in his letter to the
Ephesians he said, "Grace
,be with all those who love
our Lord Jesus Christ
with incorruptible love."
(Eph. 6:24) -
The word incorruptible
usually refers to something
that does not grow weary
or tired, it has no end, it
never dies and it never
looses it's zeal. Paul
wanted them to have a love
for Christ that would not
quit. A love that had so
much zeal for the Lord that
it could not help but speak
of the wonderful love of
Jesus.
But by the time John
wrote the book of Revela-
tion, close to thirty years
later, Paul's dreams were
dashed. Jesus also said of
the church in Ephesus in
Rev. 2:4; "But I have this


fLet i

Light Shine
Wes Webb


against you, that you have
left your first love."
They had lost that
incorruptible love!
Journey back in your
mind to your first days as a
brand new believer of Jesus
Christ.
Return to that time
when your love was bud-
ding and emerging into full
bloom. Remember when
you would speak of Christ
and it would ignite your
heart with an exciting burst
of zeal and delight?
Remember when prayer
was new and untried and
you felt it's power as you
communed with the
Almighty?
Remember when the
Bible was a book of truth
filled with insights you had
never known before?
Remember when sharing
Him with someone else
represented the highlight
of your week?
Remember when your
devotion was consistent,
fulfilling, enriching...deep?
What happened to all of
that? Maybe you have
become like one of the
Ephesian Christians whom
Jesus urged in Rev. 2:5;
"Therefore remember
from where you have
fallen, and repent and do
the deeds you did at first;
or else I am coming to you
and will remove your lamp
stand out of its place-
unless you repent."

spondence, contact me

What a difference a day can make


One of the things that Judy
and I have really enjoyed since
we moved to Florida 10 years
ago are evening or over night
trips to the Gulf.
One of the things I have dis-
covered on our trips often back
to the same place, is that the
beach is never exactly the same
as it was the last time we were
there. Isn't that great?
Most of you will say no,
because for some reason most
people that I have worked with
in church don't like change. But
if they would only study God and
His Holy Word they would real-
ize that though He never
changes He likes and created
change.
After my granddaddy Tyson
received Christ as his Lord
he truly changed,- for before
his conversion he was an
alcoholic and bar room brawler.
But what a wonderful change
took place in his life when he
met Christ. His favorite song
became "Time Has Made a
Change in Me."
If each one of us would take


Fro he

Heart
Tim Hall


an honest look at ourselves we
would have to confess that great
changes have occurred in our
life, some good, and some bad.
Our bodies change to being
larger or smaller, with less hair.
and more flexible skin, but hope-
fully we get wiser, which I think
is what God intended to take
place.
God knew that we needed
change in our lives even though


we fight change.
Most of us fight change
because when we began to allow
the change that God wants to
bring in our lives; we become
more of what He wants us to be,
rather than what we had in mind.
But just like the beach, if
you know someone who has truly
let God change their attitude,
their desires and even their
habits to be that which He
wanted them to be, you will find
they have found peace and joy,
in being all that God intended
for them to be.
God is a God of change, and
He can cause these dramatic
changes to take place in only a
day. Think about it. There was a
day when the entire universe was
nothing but blackness and
emptiness, in just a day He filled
it with light and life.
There was a time when all
mankind longed for a Savior to
come, and in the matter of a day,
he sent His only Son and what a
difference He made in this
world, a difference that no one
can deny, as our calendars count


from His date of birth.
The world thought they could
destroy Him, but what a differ-
ence He made in just one day as
He defied death, Hell and the
grave, and rose victoriously.
One of the greatest differ-
ences that I have seen in my
life is how He has changed me
and it all began the day I
accepted His simple promise
that He died that I might live,
that He rose victoriously that I
might have victory, and that He
ascended to Heaven that I would
be able to continue to live within
His power filled with the Holy
Spirit.
Everyday He continues to
change the world and lives, one
by one and day by day. Have you
allowed Him to be Lord and
Master of your life?
I hope so, because soon there
is going to be a day, which the
world will remember more so
than it does the day that Christ
came to earth, even more than
the day He died and even the day
He rose victoriously.
It's the day He returns for His


bride, the born-again church.
That day there will be great
changes take place in the local
church and the world.
As I think about the beach and
the changes that take place daily,
and that Sunday the world will
celebrate that He rose from the
grave, I get excited because I am
also aware of the changes that
He has made in me and for this
reason I look forward to every
new day, just to see what new
changes He will again bring in
me.
Praise the Lord Christ lives
today, He is not in the grave but
on The Throne, His Throne. We
have so much to celebrate
because as the angel said in
Matthew 28: 5-6 "Do not be
afraid, for I know that you seek
Jesus who was crucified. He is
not here; for He is risen, . ."
(NKJV).

^, Easierif- special Christian holiday commemorating the
resurrection of'Jesus Christ. There.is something special about this
holiday'that young and old alike seem to enjoy. Easter is one of the
mole popular holidays in the year, and many Christians throughout
the/'wojd whdo may not normally attend a religious service on a
,.regUlar i'asis.usually try to attend some service on Easter Sunday.
"Christ's resurrection, after His dying on the cross, proved that He
was God and Savior to the world. His resurrection assures us that
we also share 4n His victory and
.that He is coming again to receive
all believers unto Himself. Easter
baskets, jelly beans and chocolate
eggs are all good and festive ways
for us to celebrate this important
holiday; however, Christ dying
and rising again for our sake is
.. the primary -eason for Easter. Our
/ 4 ',, heavenly Father who loves us,
L's gave His orly begonen Son so
k J that whoever believes in Him shall
have everlasting life
But the angel said to the women, "Do not be ofraid-
for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified
He is not here; for He has risen..."

Covenant Hospice

celebrates national

social work month


MARIANNA Who in
- your life do you consider to
have strengths?
The answer is simple -
.every person, family and
community has strengths
from which they can draw
when times are difficult.
And social workers can help
'build upon those strengths.
Covenant Hospice, along
with the National Associa-
tion of Social Workers,
proudly announces National
Social Work Month 2008.
,This year's theme Building
on Strengths: Help Starts Here
focuses on the important
*strengths inherent in each
individual, family and com-
munity. Understanding and
utilizing these strengths are
essential to improving the
emotional health and well-
being of society.
Strengthening people and
providing support are priori-
ties of the social work pro-
fession. Wherever there is a
problem with an individual,
family or community, social


workers look for the
inherent strengths that can,
be used as a starting point
for further growth.
"The strengths perspec-
tive approach fosters hope
by focusing on the positive,
rather than on feelings of
helplessness," says Janet
Wilkie, LCSW, director of
Special Programs for
Covenant Hospice. "Individ-
uals, families and communi-
ties can feel empowered by
looking and working with
their strengths."
Social Work Month also
provides an opportunity for
social workers to highlight
the essential role they play in
alleviating some of Amer-
ica's most difficult problems.
Through education, training
and dedication, social work-
ers provide assistance in
many different areas of prac-
tice including health, aging,
mental health, child welfare,
cancer, end of life, adoles-
cent health, HIV/AIDS and
family violence.

added 55-gallon "tip tanks" to the
wingtips, in addition to its standard
. 150-gallon tanks in the wings. It is
not the most fuel-efficient way to
travel. "It burns 180 gallons an
hour," Pinto said.
Pinto is a flight instructor and has
certified three pilots for jet flight.
The transition from a propeller-
driven aircraft takes up to 11 hours,
depending on experience, "and jet
time is helpful," Pinto noted. The Jet
Prevost is a good plane to learn on
and to fly. "It's a very forgiving
aircraft." Pinto said.
His wife, well-known science
fiction and youth author Nancy
Springer, was also on hand. Springer

winner (1995 and 1996), and has
been nominated for Nebula-Hugo
and World fantasy awards. She has
published more than 50 books and is
known for, among others, the Enola
Holmes series about the adventures
of Sherlock Holmes' sister. Her
books are available at local libraries,
and she has done appearances at
Holmes County Public Library.
The Florida Wildlife Commission
had their special search plane used
for search and rescue and marijuana
eradication, among other uses. The
aircraft is a P-68 Observer, and it is
designed with an all-around vision
nose for observation.
The Observer can fly for 7/2 hours


and is well designed for both visual
and electronic observation. Not only
is there plenty of vision forward, but
the pilot also has a set of night-vision
goggles identical to those used by the
military. The aircraft also has a date
link system that enables it to get
feeds from the ground and view
them on a screen inside the aircraft.
One aircraft is based in South
Florida and the other in North
Florida.
There were several ultralights and
homebuilts present, including a
Spezio "two-holer" in bright yellow
and blue, and a red Stdrduster 2
biplane. Alan Williams of Chipley
said both are homebuilts. The Spezio
was in a hanger in upstate New York
and took 2/2 years to refurbish. The
Starduster is a very popular aircraft,
with at least 300 in service, Williams
said. "That airplane is a lot of fun,"
Williams said.

By NANCY BERKOFF

I had great luck this year
growing several pineapple
tops cut from Maui Gold '
pineapples. One of the
pineapple tops has become a
mature plant, and it is flow-
ering, on the way to yielding
a new pineapple. I may
retire and go into the
pineapple business!
Pineapples, bromeliaceae,
are the rebels of that plant
family. They are the only
members of the family to
give edible fruit. Pineapples
or "pinas" are so-called
because of their resemblance
to pine cones. The cultiva-
tion of pineapple is thought
to have begun in South
America and the West
Indies. Spanish and Por-
tuguese explorers brought
pineapple to Asia from
which it was introduced to
Australia, Hawaii and
South Africa. Nowadays,
pineapples are grown in
Most tropical regions,
including South and Central
America, the Caribbean,.
Australia, the Pacific Islands
and several countries in Asia
and Africa.
One pineapple is formed
by more than 100 small
purple flowers that grow in a
spiral pattern. These flowers
join together and produce
what looks like a single fruit,
but which is actually many
small, individual fruit, called
"eyes." All pineapples are
seedless and can have outer
skins that are golden, brown,
yellow, green or red. Pineap-
ple plants produce fruit
quickly, about 18 months
after planting. Pineapple is
an environmentally aware
fruit, as all parts of the fruit
are usable. The flesh is eaten
fresh or canned and the
trimmings (tops, skin, core)
are used in the production of
vinegar and alcohol and as
part of animal feed.
For a long time, commer-
cialization of pineapple was
limited, as pineapple, espe-
cially ripe ones, did not hold
up well when shipped. With
refrigeration and rapid trans-
port pineapples were ready
to hit the world. However,
pineapples are still very per-
ishable and bruise easily; the
interior will begin to ferment
if held too long at room tem-
perature. Pineapple will

keep for 48 hours, tops, at
room temperature, but it
does not become more
sweet, just less acid.
Pineapple should be kept
refrigerated until ready to
use, wrapped loosely in plas-
tic; it should hold this way for
up to five days. Cut pineap-
ple, stored in liquid such as
juice or syrup, will last in the
refrigerator for up to three
days, but tends to lose some
of its flavor. Your personal
pineapple should have a
faint, pleasant aroma when it
beckons to you at the market
should have deep green
leaves which are not broken
or cracked and should yield
gently to pressure.
Some pineapplelpickers
believe you can tell if a
pineapple is ripe if a leave
can be plucked easily from
the top, others will tell you
that a muffled sound (when
rapped with the palm of the
hand) sends the right mes-
sage. Actually, all pineapples
should be picked when ripe,
as a plucked pineapple does
not increase in sugar con-
tent. So, fruit myths aside,
pluck or rap, but all pineap-
ples for sale should be
equally ripe. Avoid pineap-
ples with spotted skins, dark-
ened eyes or yellowing
leaves as these are signs of
age and dryness.
Pineapple has loads of
vitamin C and some
potassium, magnesium and
folic acid. Herbalists use fresh
pineapple as a diuretic and
for some stomach distur-
bances. Four ounces of fresh
pineapple has about 50 calo-
ries, with no fat or sodium.
