City institutes


burn ban



through July

By Cecilia Spears
StaffWriter
cspears@chipleypaper.com
The City of Chipley has issued a burn ban
within the city limits.
The city has made illegal the use and sale of
all types of fireworks (sparklers, flares, any type
of explosives). All such materials are included in
this burn ban. The ban takes effect immediately,
city officials said.
"This burn ban is due to the extreme dry
condition that has increased the fire level hazard,"
read the city order. "There are 377 wild land fires
burning across the state today involving 115,200
acres."
The burn ban prohibits campfires and all
open burning, excluding attended and monitored
barbecue and cooking equipment. The burn ban
also prohibits the use, ignition or discharge of any
type of explosive compounds, fireworks, flares or
sparklers.
"Any individual violating the burn ban could
face fines not to exceed $500 and up to 60 days in
jail," the order reads.
"We strongly rely on our community to help us
prevent dangerous wild land fires from starting,"
city officials said. "Your efforts will help protect the
lives and property of all citizens and visitors."
Unless lifted, the ban will remain in effect
through July 13.


Vernon to buy

Dixie baseball

teams' uniforms
By Cecilia Spears
StaffWriter
cspears@chipleypaper.com
VERNON - Vernon City Council responded to
the pleas of Vernon's Dixie Youth team coach Bri-
an Brock during their regularly scheduled meet-
ing June 13 with a vow to help Vernon's teams
purchase uniforms and hats for the season.
"We get the uniforms from last year, and we
change the names and sew and hem the uniforms,
but you can do that only so many times," Brock
said. "Going to All Star is a big honor, and these
kids are representing the city of Vernon; if we
don't have some decent uniforms, they shouldn't
even be practicing."
Brock said it wasn't just so that the team will
look good; there are also uniform regulations, and
sometimes pants are handed down while the city
gets new shirts, but the colors don't always match.
"We've got a chance to play in state," Brock said.
"These boys have the chance to go to Lakeland
and experience what true baseball is all about."
The city approved of council member Tina
Sloan's proposal to buy the teams new shirts, pants
and hats. The funding was approved to come from
the city's recreation department.
"Be as frugal as possible," said council member
Tray Hawkins. "That way if the kids go to state, we
can help them with the expenses."
Fire Chief Matt Gothard reported that all of the
fire department's new gear had come in except
the gloves, which were on back order.
The council approved of the fire department
buying new T-shirts for the Fourth of July
celebration for $200.
"We're also announcing that we're giving out
smoke detectors to all those who need them,"
Gothard said. "They'll be available at the Vernon
City Hall while supplies last."

Zach Jadofsky signs with Atlanta Braves


Special to the News
Junior pitcher Zach Jadofsky
of the University of West Florida
baseball team signed a free agent
contract with the Atlanta Braves
on June 13. Jadofsky's signing
gives the Argonauts six players
advancing to professional base-
ball after the team's 2011 NCAA
Division II national champion-
ship season, including five select-


ed in the MLB First-Year Player
Draft last week.
Jadofsky is from Chipley and
started his collegiate career at
Enterprise State Community
College. At UWF; he posted a 4.28
ERA and a 4-0 record in 2011,
and he struck out 22 batters and
walked just nine. Injuries lim-
ited him to just 10 appearances,
but he finished strong. In three


postseason relief


appearances,


he pitched 11.1 scoreless innings,
including 3.2 innings in UWF's 5-
3 comeback victory over Mount
Olive in the NCAA Division II
Championships.
Because of UWF's champion-
ship run through the first week of
June, Jadofsky got a late start to
his summer league schedule with
the Woodstock River Bandits of
the Valley Baseball League. The
right-hander made his first ap-


pearance with the Bandits on
June 11 against the Waynesboro
Generals and pitched one score-
less inning. After impressing
scouts enough with one appear-
ance, he was offered a free agent
contract and signed with the
Braves.
The Argonauts had a pro-
gram-best five players selected
in the 2011 draft, including out-
fielders Dustin Lawley and Greg


Pron going to the New York Mets,
pitcher Daniel Vargas-Vila and
shortstop Brandon Brewer to the
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim,
and pitcher Ben Hawkins to the
Washington Nationals. Former
Argonaut pitchers John Church
and Kevin Johnson are currently
making their way through the mi-
nor leagues; Church was drafted
by the Mets in 2009, and Johnson
was a 2010 pick by the Angels.

statement this week warn-
ing residents to be "aware
that burglary and property
theft continue to be the
crimes most frequently
committed in our area, par-
alleling the trend through-
out Florida."
The remainder of the
statement reads:
"There are numerous
factors that play a role in
rising burglary and per-
sonal property theft. Most
of the factors are outside
of our control, but there
are safeguards residents
can put into place to make
them less likely to become
a victim.
"What can residents do
to protect their homes?
"Keep all doors and win-
dows closed and securely
fastened; this includes your
garage door.
"Secure sliding glass
doors. Install solid-core
doors, heavy-duty locks and
window security systems.
"Always lock the door to
an attached garage.
"Create the illusion that
you are home. Keep the
perimeter of your home
well-lighted. Use motion-
detector lights around
your home to deny anyone
the ability to roam your lot
undetected.
"Never leave clues that


you are away on a trip.
"Keep some shades and
blinds up and curtains open
to maintain a normal, ev-
eryday appearance in your
residence.
"Never leave a message
on your telephone answer-
ing machine telling people
that you are away from
home.
"Keep shrubbery
trimmed away from en-
trances and walkways.
"Keep a list of serial
numbers for firearms,
equipment, etc.
"If possible, photograph
all valuables, including fire-
arms, jewelry, coins, etc.
"Neighbors can be the
best weapon against theft
in a community. Keep an
eye out for suspicious
cars and/or people in your
neighborhood. Report any
activity out of the norm to
the sheriff's office.
"Criminals who com-
mit these crimes often fol-
low very specific patterns.
Knowing what these are
can help you protect your-
self and your home. Know
that:
* Burglars tend to com-
mit their crimes during the
day, when residents are
likely to be out.
* Often, robbers have
been in the home as con-


tractors, delivery people
or salesmen, meaning they
may know the basic lay-
out before the crime even
begins.
* Burglars will be less
likely to target a home that
is clearly monitored by a
security system. Install a
home alarm system, and
be sure to activate it when
appropriate. You may also
want to consider a system
that alerts you to a vehicle
entering your property,
such as can be found at
www.dingdong.com, or a
Blackberry or iPhone ap-
plication that can call for
assistance, such as can be
found at www.silentbody
guard.com.
"The Washington Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office will con-
tinue to be proactive in
their resolve to prevent the
victimization of our resi-
dents. How can you help?
Organize a neighborhood
watch program to protect
your neighborhood. An
alert community is a safe
community. Washington
County Sheriff's Office
has neighborhood watches
active in several neigh-
borhoods throughout the
county. If you are interest-
ed in organizing one in your
community, contact us at
638-6111."

Kiwanis gives 'BUGs' to third-graders at Kate Smith


Special to the News
Third grade students
at Kate M. Smith
Elementary School were
recognized at a special
presentation in the school
cafeteria June 6. The
ceremony was attended
by students and parents.
Sponsor of the
program, the Chipley
Kiwanis Club, presented
special graduation
certificates and
bookmarks to students
who improved a
subject by one grade or
maintained current grade
level in all subjects. The
program continues from
grade period to grade
period to encourage
constant improvement
in school results. The
presentations, made
to 151 students, were
in addition to the 130
students recognized at
the end of the prior 9-
week grading period.
The BUG program was
created this year at Kate
M. Smith Elementary
through the coordination
of Principal Jerry
Register and the Kiwanis
Young Children/Priority
One Committee chaired
by Kiwanian Patsy
Justice. Further student
recognition is provided
by a school "BUG Honor
Roll" for 3rd-graders that
is distributed school-wide.
Plans are to expand the
program in future years
to other 3rd grade classes
and schools.
Third grade teachers
with award recipients
were Cecilia Grissett,
Kelly Kunde, Kim
Hartzog, Thomas Laney,


Jane Lively, Sammie
Owens, Dee Stanton,
Herbert Wiggins and
Deborah Woods. Assistant
Principal Bonnie Lindsey
conducted the awards
ceremony.
A key objective of
the BUG program is to
encourage students to
focus on making one
small accomplishment
at a time. For this
school year, the BUG
challenge to students
included the last two
grading periods. A total
of 30.1 percent of the 156
grade improvements
were in reading, with
28 percent of students
improving math, and
14 percent improving
writing skills by at least
one grade. Science (11.5
percent), language arts
(10.3 percent) and social
studies (7.7 percent)
all showed recorded
improvements.
Kiwanis International
offers leadership
opportunities to students
at all grade levels through
college through its local
clubs, with the K-Kids
Club for elementary
students, Builders Club
at the middle school level,
Key Clubs for high school
and college students
working through the
Circle K International
programs.
All student clubs offer
leadership development
opportunities while
instilling the value for
community service
to others. With the
exception of the K-Kids,
all clubs are operated by
student elected officers
and mentored by a faculty


advisor and Kiwanis
club member as liaison
from the adult Kiwanis
organization. All clubs
conduct community
service projects and
raise their own funding
to support club activities.
Kiwanis International is
a global organization of
volunteers dedicated to
changing the world, one
child and one community
at a time. More
information is available
online at www.kiwanis.
org, or by contacting the
local club.
The Kiwanis Club
of Chipley has been
providing support to
youth oriented events and
programs for 70 years and
last year supported 31
organizations throughout
the county.
The next fund raising
project will be the Annual
Kiwanis Dinner Theatre
that this year will return
to the popular talent show
format to showcase local
talent in all age groups.
Scheduled for
Thursday evening, Sept.
15, the event will be
held at the Ag Center
in Chipley with tickets
priced at $25 per person
or $45 per couple.
The club meets

Saturday, June 25, 2011


Theamunfl


By Steve Liner
Managing Editor

When I was 9,
I attended
a church
picnic that
featured a watermelon
seed-spitting contest
and was hooked on a life-
long love affair with the
watermelon.
But, until I came to
Chipley, I gave little more
thought to watermelon
than how to fit one in the
fridge for cooling, and what
I knew about watermelon
was limited to striped
green skin and red pulp
inside (OK, sometimes yel-
low, but I thought that was
as exotic as it got).
Now, here we are in the
midst of the 55th Annual
Watermelon Festival, and
I figured its time I knew
more about the watermel-
on than my rather limited
knowledge.
So, off to the Internet I
went (more on that later).
In the meantime, it
bears mentioning that
events like this weekend's
festival don't just happen.
It takes work by Judge
Colby Peel, the chairman,
and his intrepid staff of vol-
unteers over much of the
year to produce a weekend
such as the one to which


we are being treated. Just
the country music con-
certs we enjoyed last night
took hours of negotiations
and much work, and that
was only the beginning. Ar-
ranging a parade, pancake
breakfast, 5K run, antique
car show, arts and crafts
show and sale and on and
on all needed meticulous
planning and almost mi-
raculous organizational
skills. So, when you see
Judge Peel and the festi-
val volunteers, join me in
giving them a smile and a
heartfelt thank you.
I've learned some in-
teresting facts about wa-
termelon on the Internet. I
started with good ole' Wiki-
pedia (which was great for
the botanical information
and much of the history),
sciencedaily.com gave me
the - uh - unusual Viagra-
like medicinal value of wa-
termelon, the nutritional
facts come from nutrition-
data.self.com and a variety
of other sources were used
as well. Among sites I found
fascinating and useful were
also www.watermelon.org,
www.thecaloriecounter.
com, www.foodasfood.com,
www.foodterms.com, www.
nationalwatermelonasso-
ciation.com. I even went
to Facebook to see what
information I could glean.

over hundreds of years
about our festival honoree.
There is breaking
international news about
watermelon. Also a recent
study shows watermelon
so healthy it is a natural
replacement for a well
known drug (note: that
part of the story comes
with a "mature audiences
only" warning, but don't
worry, this is a G-rated
article). And along the way I
explored the amazing fruit's
nutrition, calorie count and
some unusual recipes for
your Watermelon Festival
party.

Pricey watermelon
The Densuke
watermelon, a highly prized
Japanese fruit, sold at
auction for almost $4,000 in
Sapporo earlier last week.
Isetan Department Store
bought the fruit, which
is grown exclusively in
northern Japan's Hokkaido,
for $3,743 Tuesday morning.
Densuke watermelons
are prized for their solidly
black, smooth gourd, crispy
texture, and extra sweet
juices, the Inquisitr reports.
There are only about 100
available the first day it
goes on sale each year. At
peak season several years
ago, the fruit sold for $6,100,
according to the Wall Street
Journal.
Call me crazy, but I don't
think any melon at the
Watermelon Festival will
bring in anything near that.

Watermelon's bonus
(this section mature audiences)
- Yep. A study at Texas


A&M caused news in 2008.
'A cold slice of
watermelon has long been
a Fourth of July holiday
staple. But according to
recent studies, the juicy
fruit may be better suited
for Valentine's Day,"
wrote Science Digest.


FLORIDA FREEDOM NEWSPAPERS

come a bit of a watermelon expert in time for this year's Watermelon Festival.
what I was up against as I entered the information highway of the Internet!


"That's because scientists
say watermelon has
ingredients that deliver
Viagra-like effects to the
body's blood vessels and
may even increase libido."
Who knew?

Watermelon nutrition.
First issue: calories.
A serving of watermelon
(about 10 medium-sized
watermelon balls) equals
37 calories. In other words,
you might explode before
you could eat enough
calories to equal a couple of
candy bars.
While watermelon is
exactly "rich" in nutrients,
it holds its own. Here's a
list of essential nutrients
it contains (percentage
is recommended daily
allowance in a single
serving): Vitamin A, 3
percent, Thiamine (Vitamin
Bl) 3 percent, Riboflavin
(Vitamin B2) 1 percent,
Niacin (Vitamin B3)
1 percent, Pantothenic acid
(B5) 4 percent, Vitamin B6
3 percent, Folate (Vitamin
B9) 1 percent, Vitamin C 14
percent, Calcium 1 percent,
Iron 2 percent, Magnesium
3 percent, Phosphorus
2 percent, Potassium 2
percent and Zinc 1 percent.
Watermelon is also
mildly diuretic and contains
large amounts of beta
carotene. Watermelon with
red flesh is a significant
source of lycopene and is,
generally, about 6 percent
sugar.

Watermelon recipes
Thousands of cookbooks,
literally, have been written
exploring every aspect
of the culinary life of the
watermelon. The National
Watermelon Promotion
Board has their own list
of appetizers, entrees,
sandwiches, salads,
desserts.
The most unusual recipe
has got to be the BLWT
sandwich! A twist on the
traditional bacon, lettuce
and tomato sandwich,
this one includes a slice of
watermelon. Cool, huh?

Watermelon history
Watermelon is, officially
Citrullus lanatus of the
family Cucurbitaceaeto
botanists. It is defined as
a vine-like (scrambler and
trailer) flowering plant
originally from southern
Africa. Its fruit, which is
known as a watermelon
is a special kind of fruit
known by botanists as a
pepo, a berry which has a
thick rind (exocarp) and
fleshy center (mesocarp
and endocarp); pepos are
derived from an inferior
ovary, and are characteristic
of the Cucurbitaceae. The
watermelon fruit, loosely
considered a type of melon
(although not in the genus
Cucumis), has a smooth
exterior rind (green,
yellow and sometimes
white) and a juicy, sweet
interior flesh (usually pink,
but sometimes orange,
yellow, red and sometimes
green if not ripe). It is also
commonly used to make
a variety of salads, most
notably fruit salad.
Watermelon is thought to
have originated in southern
Africa, where it is found
growing wild, because it
reaches maximum genetic
diversity there, resulting
in sweet, bland and bitter
forms. Alphonse de
Candolle, in 1882, already
considered the evidence
sufficient to prove that
watermelon was indigenous
to tropical Africa. Though
Citrullus colocynthis
is often considered to
be a wild ancestor of
watermelon and is now
found native in north and
west Africa, Fenny Dane
and Jiarong Liu suggest
on the basis of chloroplast
DNA investigations that
the cultivated and wild
watermelon appear to have
diverged independently
from a common ancestor,
possibly C. ecirrhosus from
Namibia.
It is not known when the
plant was first grown as a
crop, but there is evidence
of its cultivation in the Nile
Valley from at least as early
as the second millennium
BC. Although watermelon
is not depicted in any
Egyptian hieroglyphic
text nor does any ancient
writer mention it, finds of
the characteristically large
seed are reported in Twelfth
dynasty sites; numerous
watermelon seeds were
recovered from the tomb of
Pharaoh Tutankhamun.
By the 10th century
AD, watermelons were
being cultivated in China,
which is today the world's
single largest watermelon
producer. By the 13th
century, Moorish invaders
had introduced the fruit to
Europe; according to John
Mariani's The Dictionary of
American Food and Drink,
"watermelon" made its first
appearance in an English
dictionary in 1615.
Museums Online South
Africa list watermelons as
having been introduced to
Native Americans in the
16th century. Early French
explorers found Native
Americans cultivating the
fruit in the Mississippi
Valley.
Many sources list
the watermelon as
being introduced in

Massachusetts as early
as 1629. Southern food
historian John Egerton has
said he believes African
slaves helped introduce the
watermelon to the United
States. Texas Agricultural
Extension horticulturalist
Jerry Parsons lists African
slaves and European
colonists as having
distributed watermelons
to many areas of the world.
Parsons also mentions
the crop being farmed by
Native Americans in Florida
(by 1664) and the Colorado
River area (by 1799). Other
early watermelon sightings
include the Midwestern
states (1673), Connecticut
(1747) and the Illiana region
(1822).
Charles Fredric Andrus,
a horticulturist at the
USDA Vegetable Breeding
Laboratory in Charleston,
South Carolina, set out
to produce a disease-
resistant and wilt-resistant
watermelon. The result
was "that gray melon from
Charleston." Its oblong
shape and hard rind made
it easy to stack and ship.
Its adaptability meant
it could be grown over a
wide geographical area.
It produced high yields
and was resistant to the
most serious watermelon
diseases: anthracnose and
fusarium wilt.
Today, farmers in 44
states in the U.S. grow
watermelon commercially,
and almost all these
varieties have some
Charleston Gray in their
lineage. Georgia, Florida,
Texas, California and
Arizona are the U.S.A's
largest watermelon
producers.
This now-common
watermelon is often large
enough that groceries often
sell half or quarter melons.
There are also some
smaller, spherical varieties
of watermelon, both
red- and yellow-fleshed,
sometimes called "icebox
melons."
In Japan, farmers
of the Zentsuji region
found a way to grow cubic
watermelons, by growing
the fruits in glass boxes
and letting them naturally
assume the shape of the
receptacle. The square
shape is designed to make
the melons easier to stack
and store, but the square
watermelons are often
more than double the price
of normal ones. Pyramid
shaped watermelons have
also been developed and
any polyhedral shape may
potentially also be used.

Watermelon growing
For commercial plant-
ings, one beehive per acre
is the minimum recom-
mendation by the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture for
pollination of conventional,
seeded varieties. Because
seedless hybrids have ster-
ile pollen, pollinizer rows of
varieties with viable pollen
must also be planted.
Since the supply of vi-
able pollen is reduced and
pollination is much more
critical in producing the
seedless variety, the rec-
ommended number of
hives per acre, or pollinator
density, increases to three
hives per acre.
