Last week, the "prattler" was
commenting on his observation
of a renewed interest in history
and heritage of the area in
recent years. Today, he turns to
the topic of old time, or
traditional music, which, for
lack of a better word, has been
labeled bluegrass music.

picked up a medium-sized ball
decorated like a globe of the

road was announced. Also attending
were Dothan Mayor Pat Thomas

Taser, a

handy tool

for police

JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
afelsberg@chipleypaper.com

Not everyone submits to
arrest when confronted by law
enforcement. Two Washington
County suspects were an exam-
ple last week as sheriff's
deputies resorted to use of
their tasers in both cases.
The first case involved a
reported theft that took
Deputy Jason Cook to Bonifay
as part of the investigation. A
Bonifay teen reported that her
cousin, Jason Stanley, had
shoved her and taken prescrip-
tion medication belonging to
her mother. When the deputy
stopped Stanley and attempted
to place him in the patrol car,
Stanley resisted. "He continued
to resist so I 'touch tased' him
on the side," Cook wrote in his
report.
Stanley was not. through
causing trouble according to
the report. While headed for
the jail he maneuvered the
handcuffs to in front of his
body, kicked out the back win-
dow of the patrol car, and dived
out attempting to escape.
Deputies quickly apprehended
Stanley on Hubert Lane in
Washington County.
Stanley is charged with crim-
inal mischief, battery, resisting
without violence, home inva-
sion robbery, escape and viola-
tion of probation.
The second case was in Ebro
on May 3 when Deputy Jeremy
Pelfrey assisted other units in
pursuit of a suspect. According
to the report Pelfrey spotted
the suspect and proceeded in
foot pursuit. Pelfrey tackled the
suspect and managed to get
handcuffs around one wrist
while the suspect tried to grab
Pelfrey's pistol. "At this point I
became very concerned and
afraid for my. safety, so I
defended my firearm and was
able to touch tase him and take
him into custody," Pelfrey said
in his report.
Charles Daniel Scott of
Panama City was charged with
battery, resisting with violence,
and obstructing with violence.
Capt. James Strickland of
Washington County Sheriff's
Office said that the cartridge of
the taser could be detached
and used to touch against
the suspect. "It has the same
effect as shooting the taser,"
Strickland said.
The tasers used by WCSO
look like a pistol and fire the
taser head on a 25-foot wire.
The charge drops a suspect
immediately and causes no
I ,I;-L. Il in physical injury.

A lot of questions need


to be asked about connector


We have been hearing about the so-called
"1-10 connector" for over a decade. Most of
the calls for this highway come from
Alabama, which wants a highway from Birm-
ingham south through Dothan to the Panama
City-Bay County International Airport in
West Bay. There has been plenty of talk
about the connector, and up until recently it
was only talk. However, reports about activity
with the project have increased recently in the
Dothan media.
Now comes "Focus 2000", a private, non-
profit corporation created to promote the
road in Alabama, to present information at a
public meeting Thursday, May 15 at 9 a.m. in
the Washington County Annex. This follows a
major announcement in Dothan on May 8 at
9 a.m. at the Houston County Courthouse
most likely related to the connector.
The concept behind the connector, which
would apparently be a toll road, isto give driv-
ers from Alabama a "straight shot" to the
new airport. This "limited access" highway -
meaning very few places to stop in Washing-
ton County would make for a faster, more
reliable connection between lower Alabama
and the high-capacity international airport.
Goods and material could be transported
rapidly between Dothan and Panama City.
Travelers from Alabama wanting to use the
international airport would have a faster
route.
That sounds well and good, but according
to relevant Florida officials last week it does-
n't look like Florida is very far along, if at all,
on this project. No money has been allocated
for a traffic study. No projections on toll
receipts (to pay off bonds sold to fund the
highway) have been made. Spokespersons for
Turnpike Enterprise, FDOT's toll road
department, said that there are no plans of
any sort in place and that only discussions
have been held.
FDOT District 3 would be over this proj-
ect, and their spokesperson made it clear last
week that the district's priorities are to
improve existing roads, including State 77
and 79. Funding is going into four-laning
those two highways to Interstate 10 to service
the international airport and provide faster
storm evacuation routes.


LETTER TO

THE EDITOR


Holmes County
roads unsafe at
any speed

How many deaths will
it take for Holmes
County to take care of its
roads??
Sandpath Road is one
of the heaviest traveled
dirt roads in the county,
between the washboards
and sand and ruts, it's
the most dangerous.
Numerous accidents
have occurred and in
places there isn't enough
room for two cars to pass
at the same time. The
road graders hardly
touch the dirt and drive
so fast the wheels cavi-
tate in the ruts and the
blade puts ruts right back
in the road.
I know there is a
budget crunch, but so
much money is wasted
on other unnecessary
things you would think
we could afford to get
the ground up black top
from the state roads and
put it on our roads like
Washington county did.
Thank you for
letting me sound off.
Sy Steinman
Bonifay


There are questions here. First, if state
funds, i.e. your taxes, are going to be involved
in this connector, where are they coming
from? Projected toll revenue sounds fine, but
what if other state funds are needed? Would
they come from funding for other road proj-
ects, including State 77 and 79? Four-laning
those roads will be a big boost for economic
development in Washington and Holmes
counties.
Secondly, what is this connector going to
do for Washington County? We have a pretty
good idea about how much good it would do
for Holmes and Washington counties to
improve 77 and 79, but what good would a
limited access corridor do for this county?
How many interchanges would there be?
Would it bypass the towns in the county, or
would there be access limited or otherwise
- to towns? It's fair to ask how channeling
traffic away from local business will help
Washington County, especially if reduced
access becomes a barrier to attracting new
business and industry.
Thirdly, where does the property for the
highway come from? The projected route
we've heard comes off US 231, cuts north of
Chipley going west, and then goes south to
West Bay. A cursory look at the county map
shows the connector would need lots of prop-
erty, the vast majority of which is owned by
private citizens. Would the developers buy
the necessary private land at fair market
value?
Or would eminent domain be tried?
Florida has restrictions against abuse of this
development tool. The connector has been
presented as a public/private project. Would
eminent domain be used to seize land to ben-
efit private investors?
Finally, a look at the county map shows
lots and lots of water between Chipley and
the Bay County line. Given FDEP's procliv-
ity for "wetlands mitigation," we have to
wonder who supplies the replacement wet-
lands, funds, etc. for those displaced by the
connector, as well as the effect on the county
watershed and the natural resources of the
county.
There are plenty of questions that need
answering about this project. See you May 15.

One Word
Andrew Hollinger



Freshman


Year 101

Dear Graduating High School
Seniors, I also just graduated.
From college. And there are a few
things I wish I'd known before I
walked into class on that first day.
I'm almost sure that the orienta-
tion counselors tried to caution us
of the usual college pitfalls-hult 1
was too excited to be on campus to
actually pay attention to anybody.
That was probably mistake
number one. Pay attention when
people talk at orientation or on the
campus tour. The more informa-
tion you have, the easier your tran-
sition to university life will be. The
biggest problem for new college
students is no more parents. It's
great and devastating at the same
time. You will officially be a young
adult. And you can stay out as late
as you want; see what happens at
Whataburger at 2 a.m. Does
Domino's really deliver after mid-
night? You'll find out.
Unfortunately that also means
that Mom isn't around to make
sure you get up in the morning
and go to school. Your roommate
doesn't care if you get up on time
or not, and neither do your pro-
fessors. Do not skip class. Some
professors take attendance, and
you can fail just by missing too
many classes. Other professors
leave attendance up to you, but
require you to be responsible for
all homework, notes, texts, and
lectures. You're paying for it, you
might as well go. (Plus, you don't
want to be a seven-year senior.)
College is about academics, so
make sure you pay attention to
your studies. You don't need to
shut yourself away, though. Go to
a football game, attend guest lec-
tures, audition for a play. Your
college spends your fees on fund-
ing interesting things for you to
do and see. Don't miss out on
opportunities like that. Universi-
ties want to churn out well-
rounded individuals. Make sure
to have new experiences.
One caveat, however. You'll
meet people who have done a lot
and have plenty of advice to
offer-people who have more life-
experience than you. Their experi-
ences will range from the mun-
dane to the wild to the absolutely
horrifying. You might be tempted
to look up to these individuals.
Don't mistake experience for
wisdom. Maybe if those guys had
been wiser, they wouldn't be so
experienced.
The last thing you need to be
sure to do in college is also the
hardest. You need to decide what
you think. Up to this point it's a
safe guess that you've based all
your opinions on how your par-
ents think. You decided to either
agree with your parents because
you trust their experience and wis-
dom, or you decided to disagree
with your parents because-
duh!-they're your parents.
Now, it's time to figure out
what you think and why. When a
student takes a bull horn into the
quad and starts ranting about the
national imbalance of power and
why we are in Iraq, and you feel
annoyed, is it because you dis-
agree or is it because you feel
guilty? And there will be
speeches in the quad. Just wait.
In the end, your point of view
may not change. That's okay. At
least you know why you feel the
way you do. There are things 1
would've done differently, been
more careful about, if I had known
what it was going to mean for me.
Four years is a wink and an eter-
nity. Take this moment to make
the most of your collegiate experi-
ence. By the way, congratulations
on graduating.

Fraud alert: Changing

account numbers


This is the call many
Florida residents are receiv-
ing from a con-artist
attempting to get their
checking account numbers.
The con-artist claims to be
working with all of our area
banks to change all checking
account numbers nation-
wide. When asked which
banks he names banks in the
local area.
This is not true. There is
not a nationwide account
number change taking
place.
When asked why the
banks do not contact their
own customers the con-
artist claims he is doing
this for the banks because
the job is too much for the
banks and all he is asking
for is the customer's basic
account information and
account number. He then
reminds the person on the
phone that they give their
checking account number
out every time they write a
check.
According to Washington


County Sheriff Bobby Had-
dock, "The best way to
avoid becoming a victim of
a telemarketing fraud is to
hang-up; if you don't talk to
them you can't give them
too much information. And,
when you try to reason with
them or out smart them you
are simply inviting trouble."
Here are some tips to
avoid becoming a victim of
a telemarketing scam:.
*Never talk to strangers on
the phone.
*Never, under any circum-
stances give out all or a portion of
your credit card, bank account or
Social Security numbers to a
caller.
*Use an answering machine
or Caller ID. Remember a legiti-
mate business will not block their
number.
*Register with the National Do
Not Call list by going to www.donot-
call.gov or call (888) 382-1222.
*Register on Florida's Do Not
Call list by calling (800) 435-7352.

ington County Sheriff's Office

Gary Clark, Opportunity

"And besides that, we owe
them. This site is just one
small way of showing our

ARREST REPORT


Jacob Sowell receiving Banjo Award and The Webb Family Bluegrass Band being honored
Instrumental award.


.
Submitted photo
with first place


Bluegrass is American music


Last week, the "prattler" was com-
menting on his observation of a
renewed interest in history and heritage
of the area in recent years. Today, he
turns to the topic of old time, or tradi-
tional music, which, for lack of a better
word, has been labeled bluegrass music.
This music is historic in its beginning,
representing a cross section of many
forms of music in our culture, thus mak-


ing it American Music.
This music form holds an
important place in the her-
itage of this region and the
nation.
The Wells family was
actively involved in the pro-
motion and presenting of
live bluegrass festivals in
Chipley in the 1970s and
1980s. We operated in the
facility, which was founded
by Noah Griffin, Jr. and
wife, Lois, and came to be
known at the "Bluegrass
Music Park.


Even though it may have appeared
that the music venture was a highly prof-
itable business, with no problems and
no pitfalls attached, I can tell you that,
for the most part, it continued as a
"break even" experience for the almost
ten years we were involved.
We tried diligently to bring in top
quality bands for festivals as we contin-
ued to upgrade the campground and
provide other comforts and conven-
iences for our visitors.
Uppermost, and something we did
maintain, was keeping the Music Park
clean, with a wholesome family atmos-
phere for our entertainment. Those
who mention park today still make com-
ments on these two attributes.
Although we advertised heavily and
presented excellent talent and enter-
tainment, our paid admissions seemed
to always fall short of making a decent
profit from the investment required.
It was our pleasure to give young,
aspiring musicians an opportunity to
display their talents. Marty Rabon, who
will return to Chipley in June for the fun
night watermelon festival event, played
music from the Chipley stage, along
with other family members, as one of
their first "paying gigs".
The Cook Family, consisting of hus-
band and wife, along with several
extremely young boys and girls, came to
one our festivals from Central Georgia


and performed under the stage name of
"Special Cooking."
We gave a performing opportunity to
young lady, who labeled herself as
"Mean Mary". "Dip Dillion", also came
forth to show his talents.
Our son, Emory, and nephews,
Hiram and Glen Tison, probably got
their first stage exposure in playing
music at the Chipley Festival.
My brother, Max Wells,
put a bluegrass band
together during those
years. He named his
-^. group the "Feed Store
Stompers". Included in his
S.' group were Emory, Glen
and my wife, Hester. This
ensemble had the honor
r of performing on the stage
'y S of one of the biggest blue-
Sgrass festivals in the south
tle when they participated on
Wells the "Open Stage" seg-
ment The McClain Family
Festival in Berea, Ken-


tucky in the early 1980s.
We have now been out of directly
promoting bluegrass festivals for
almost fifteen years. An effort was
made to continue assisting those who
did carry on bluegrass festival at the
park after our departure.
We did have faithful supporters
among the "pickers" as well as loyal
fans who returned to our festival year
after year.
At this late hour, special thanks are
extended to Shelton Carroll, who
headed a band called Panhandle
Strings and to Wallace Peterson who
spearheaded the Panhandle Express
bluegrass band. They were always
ready to perform when needed. W. T.
Miller, Jr., his son, Jimmy, along with
David Fowler, are to be recognized as a
group of fine musicians who came to
our rescue numerous times
For the past two or three years, I feel
I am seeing more and more interest
and involvement from a cross section
of folk who are actively involved in pre-
senting a venue for traditional musi-
cian to perform this style of music.
One of these observations is seeing
various churches, in a variety of denom-
inations, presenting regularly scheduled
gospel bluegrass style of programs in
their churches. Reports coming to me
indicate that each effort draws a num-
ber of performing bands as well as


bringing in the lovers of this style of
unamplified, pure American music.
A recent bluegrass festival was
staged on the National Peanut Festival
Fairgrounds in Dothan and, according
to reports, drew throngs of bluegrass
fans from across the region. Report-
edly, promoters plan for this to be an
annual event.
The County Commission of Coving-
ton County Alabama held its first blue-
grass festival in January 2007 in the
Covington Center, a mammoth live-
stock arena and auditorium in the City
of Andalusia.
The event was repeated in January of
2008 with even bigger crowds and an
equal line up of well-known and talented
performers. Ironically, one of our new-
found kinsman in that area, Tony Wells,
manages the Covington Center and is
responsible for staging all shows.
Several young folk in this area are
becoming well known among bluegrass
musical purist.
Jacob Sowell, the 15-year-old banjo-
picking son of Rex and Louise Sowell
of Washington County continues to
make a name for himself and his
instrument.
Jacob was awarded First Place Mas-
ters Division Banjo and Jonathan
Webb, age 15 of Wausau, was awarded
First Place Masters Division Mandolin
as well as First Place Masters Division
Guitar at the Florida State Bluegrass
Music Competition held in Perry,
Florida April 15.
The Webb Family Bluegrass Band, a
Washington County group including,
the above two young men, plus Wayne
Webb, LynDee Webb and Jessica Webb
competed in the Instrumental Band
contest and was awarded first place.
Jacob Sowell, at his youthful stage of
life, is playing music with three different
bluegrass bands, as well as performing
"as needed" for other bands. Jacob,
along with a variety of other pickers,
representing a number of instruments,
are currently appearing each Thursday
night at Rodeo's Restaurant, a popular
eating establishment, located on High-
way 98 in the Parker area.
If you have not seen these young folk
perform, you are in for a treat. Look
for them at your church or at some
other event in our area and form your
own opinion as to acoustic music being
alive and well once again.
See you all next week.

Friends of the Library
had a ball at their May 1
meeting.
When Linda Norton fin-
ished telling members
about the summer reading
program at Chipley Public
Library and the materials
needed for craft classes,
she picked up a medium-
sized ball decorated like a
globe of the world and
tossed it to someone at her
table.
They picked up the chal-
lenge and tossed it to
another table and nearly
everyone had a chance to
get their hands on the
lightweight object.
Children's librarian
Zedra Hawkins has asked
Friends to donate things -
pie tins, old ties, panty
hose, brightly colored
stones, nesting cans and so
forth to help make the
summer program more
fun. They also were asked
to save egg cartons, and
blow the contents out of
eggs leaving the shell.,for
crafts. Norton said Friends
of the Library gave the
beach ball globe for the
summer programs.
She also announced
copies of the book about
the girl, "Dussie," written
by Nancy Springer are now
on sale at the Library.
The author, who intro-
duced Dussie at the April 3
Friends meeting, named
the main character in her
book after mythology's


Medusa vOho sported a
head full of snakes.
This month's speaker
was Mary E. Flowers, who
was born, attended school
and grew up in Sneads.
"I've been writing since
eighth-grade," she
explained.
As part of the days pro-
gram, Flowers related por-
tions of some of her books.
Her expressive face dis-
played the anger and
laughter of some of the
people she was discussing:
Flowers says her latest
and, she thinks, her best
book is "The Panhandle," a
342-page novel has been
completed but has not yet
been published.
Mary has been married
for 40 years and has four
children. It's sort of sur-
prising that none of the
children have decided to
follow in her footsteps.
"One child is an engi-
neer," she explained, "and
two daughters are going to
be dentists. My baby son
will be a lawyer."
In addition to writing,
Flowers has been painting
- mostly old country
scenes and scenic pictures
- for 15 years. She has
also owned Flowers Office
Supply in Sneads for the
past four years.
Friends of the Library
meet at noon on the first
Thursday of the month at
Blue Lake Community
Center on Highway 77 in
Chipley.

Chipley falls in title game


CHIPLEY Jacksonville Bishop
Snyder knocked out Chipley 11-1 in
five innings in the Region 1-3A
softball finals Tuesday night. Bishop
Snyder (20-9) ripped 17 hits.
"They were the best hitting team
we've played," Chipley coach Tom
Vickers said. "They could put the bat
on the ball. The ran the bases real
well, too."
Snyder has outscored its last three
opponents 28-1. Bishop Snyder scored
two runs in the first inning and
Chipley followed with its only run in
the bottom of the first.
Chipley had two of its three hits in
the first. Jessica Bush led off with a
single and scored on a double by
Rachel Fowler. Vanessa Hatcher later
had a single for the Tigers.
Chipley finished 20-6.
"We had a real good season,"
Vickers said. "We went farther than
anyone thought we would."
Vickers loses just three players,
seniors Katelyn Davidson (left field),
Hannah Guettler (third base) and
Kylie Mulrain (second).

Eaale's View knocks out Bethlehem 4-H Fun Shoot


'-


The News Herald

JACKSONVILLE
* Bethlehem found out right away
Tuesday it wasn't meant to be against
Eagle's View Academy in the Region
1-1A softball championship game.
Coach Janie Albury said that in
the bottom of the first inning junior
pitcher Megan Dady stepped in a
hole in the pitchers' circle and
turned her ankle. A few innings later
the Wildcats' lone senior Tatie
Poteet suffered what appeared to be
a rib injury while slipping after
rounding first on a base hit.
SThe result was a 10-0 defeat in six
innings that left no doubt about the
representative in the Final Four
Monday in Plant City. Eagle's View
(16-12) plays the winner of Lake
Worth Christian vs. Zion Lutheran
in a state semifinal. Bethlehem fin-
ished 21-5.
"We didn't hit the ball very well,
that's the best pitching we've seen,"
Albury said of Eagle's View. "They
did a lot of things we weren't used to
seeing. They had three or four girls
who slapped it, but they also could
hit for power."
Albury said Poteet was taken from
the field by ambulance after falling
and jamming her elbow into her rib
cage. Albury was reached at a Jack-
sonville hospital that was running
tests on Poteet late Tuesday.


Playoff roundups
*The Chipley Tigers kept it
close but fell to Pensacola
Catholic in the regional
baseball semifinals Friday,
May 2. The Tigers finished at
17-10 for the season.
*Vernon (7-15) made it
to the regional softball
quarterfinals but fell to
Sneads 5-4.
*Cottondale (14-10) beat
Baker 4-3 in theregional
softball quarterfinals but fell
to Sneads 5-3 in the regional
finals.
*Holmes County made it
to the regional softball
quarterfinals but fell to
South Walton 2-1.

"She might have broken a rib,"
Albury speculated. "When she got
hurt we put a freshman in for her. I
said at the time that's our team for
next year pretty much."
Albury wasn't about to look back
on a 21-win season with too many
regrets.
"We beat some teams were
weren't supposed to. We beat a 5A
school out of Alabama and of course
beating Graceville three of four
times was good. They're a good
team."


The Holmes County and Jackson
County 4-H councils are hosting an
Archery Fun Shoot on Saturday, May
10, in Bonifay. Youth ages 8-18 are
invited to participate in a variety of
archery sessions including competi-
tion style, 3-D, and unique archery
games. The age requirement of partic-
ipants must be age 8 or older as of
September 1, 2007. No exceptions
regarding age restrictions will be
allowed.
This event will be held at the
Holmes County Fair Grounds from 8
a.m. until noon. Required registration
will be on site beginning at 7:30 a.m.
with a participation fee of $5 per
youth. Archery equipment will be
available, however, youth are wel-
come to bring their own archery
equipment. Awards and prizes will be
given out at the end the event.
Holmes County 4-H is currently
seeking adult and teen volunteers
interested in establishing a 4-H Shoot-
ing Sports Program in the area. There
is a huge interest among youth
throughout the county to participate
in a shooting sports program but a
lack of volunteers has been a major
obstacle in getting the program run-
ning. Volunteer registration will be
held on site at the Fun Shoot event.
For more information about the
Archery Fun Shoot and/or joining 4-
H, contact Niki Crawson at the
UF/IFAS Holmes County Extension
office, at 547-1108 or by email at

soar at the expense of
competition.
The racing is great
without being easy.
"This is a race track
that's tough," said David
Reutimann. "It's a driver's
race track, so, from that
aspect, it's a fun track to
race at. The groove widens
out, and you can race all
over the place here. It's a
track that's tough on a car,
rough on brakes and
rough on tempers. As a
driver, especially starting
out, it's a track where you
can learn a lot."
While easy to overstate
- given the fact that
Richmond began as a dirt
track, was paved in 1953
and completely rebuilt in
'88 it's a fact that every
driver in NASCAR history
with more than 70 career
victories Richard Petty,

Each year RIR hosts
two 400-lap, 300-mile
races. Saturday night's
Dan Lowry 400 completes
the first round of races at
the Sprint Cup Series'
three "short tracks," a
term defined as smaller
than a mile. The latter
race, on Sept. 6, has
brought the regular season
to a close ever since
NASCAR implemented its
Chase in 2004.
"I just think
for the teams,
for the fans and
for everybody
that it takes to
make this sport
work, it's the
best all-around
track," said Jeff
CAR Burton, the
CA current point
Dao leader.
lay "Richmond has
Dutton good racing
action. It's big
enough where
it's not wreck after wreck,
but small enough where it's
close, side-by-side action,
since you have multiple
grooves. To me, it's a really
hard race track to beat,
competition-wise."
The Richmond list of
winners isn't overly
exclusive. Most good drivers
wind up excelling here. Of
the current top 12 in the
standings, all but Bowyer,
Carl Edwards and Juan
Montoya have finished in
the top five at least once.
Jimmie Johnson had never
won at Richmond until last
year, when he promptly
pulled off a sweep at the
track. Clint Bowyer won on
Saturday.
Eventually, everyone
"gets it." What that means
is that it's difficult to
determine who has the
edge in any given race.
And what could be
better than that?

General Facts About Tobacco
*Tobacco use kills more than 400,000 Americans each year-more
than alcohol, AIDS, car crashes, illegal drugs, murders and suicides
combined.
* Each day about 4,000 kids (under 18) try smoking for the first time,
and another 1,000 more kids become new regular daily smokers.
*The chemical nicotine found in cigarettes and other tobacco.
products is a powerful central nervous system stimulant that is
highly addictive. In high doses it is extremely poisonous, and is
commonly used as an insecticide.
* Lung cancer, throat cancer, heart disease, stroke and emphysema
are just some of the painful, life-threatening diseases associated with
smoking. Smoking also is associated with cancers of the mouth,
larynx, esophagus, pancreas, cervix, kidney, stomach and bladder.







Tobacco Advertising and Marketing
*Tobacco companies spend over $23 million a year on lobbying the
U.S. congress and contributions to federal candidates and political
parties.
*Cigarette and spit-tobacco companies continue to advertise heavily
at retail outlets near schools and playgrounds, with large ads and
signs clearly visible from outside the stores.
*A 1995 study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found
that teens are more likely to be influenced to smoke by cigarette
advertising than by peer pressure.
*Tobacco Companies associate the use of their products with rodeos,
rock stars, and sports heroes, they even sponsor rock concerts,
rodeos, auto racing, and tractor pulls.
*The tobacco industry spends over $13.3 billion a year on advertising,
which is more that $36 million a day, only to attract new customers.

Worm






fiddlin' fun


DONNA DYKES
Staff Writer
CARYVILLE The Caryville
Worm Fiddlin' Festival started with
a bang Saturday morning, Sheriff
Bobby Haddock fired the shot
beginning the contest in which teams
try to scare up the most worms.
The rather loud shot did not scare
up any of the fish bait. Neither did
many of the teams working with ad
ax blade drawn across the top of a
wooden stake driven into the
ground. When time was up, only one
team had several worms in its foam
cup. Mandy Pate, working with her
children, Cassie and Cody, came up
with four. Three teams with one
each went into a fiddle-off to win
second- and third-place bragging
rights.
Frank Fabre and David Hinds
scared up three of the crawly critters
the second time, while Jordan
Davidson and Chris Wilson still had
only one. Fabre, who owns a busi-
ness in Pensacola, was pleased with
their "catch." Sherry French was
worm-fiddling official.
The good-sized crowd contained
quite a few politicians, and the
Democrats even had a table where
campaign materials could be left for
voters.
Prior to registration for the fid-
dling contest, an opening program
and ribbon-cutting ceremony was
held in the festival's new addition, a
big wooden pavilion used as a stage
for the Friday night concert by
Shane Owens.
Girls chosen as Festival queens
in a recent beauty pageant were


introduced at this time. They are
Miss Worm Fiddling, Christi Pitts;
Junior Miss, Haley Alexis Taylor;
Little Miss, Jasmine Trinity Clayton,
and Tiny Miss, Ragayya Shoqua.
There were lots of booths offering
good things to eat or selling jewelry
and knives, woodworking items,
photos and framed pictures.
Girl Scout Troop 357 from Ver-
non offered cookies for sale, and
their scout master, Shiela Sloan-
Garland, did face painting.
Kids enjoyed a Tinker Belle jump
house run by -Gritney Baptist
Church, pony rides, cart rides and
free balloons offered by Keepers of
the Flame youth group. The church
also had a big food booth.
Five or six other booths selling
everything from cotton candy to bar-
becue, fries and cold drinks were
scattered around the perimeter,
along with a booth selling comfy
shoes for Finicky Feet and other nice
things.
Velma Whitaker, Joyce Hender-
son and Alma Ulmer worked on a
large quilt while selling colorful
cookbooks with recipes gleaned
from local women. "We meet Thurs-
days at the civic center beginning at
9 a.m." Whitaker said.
"It's not a senior center," one of
the ladies added, "there are other
crafts." Women are invited to join
the group, and there are no fees.
The auction and horse shoe con-
test were underway at 1 p.m. when
the sky began darkening with a look
of rain. Still to go were the pie-eating
contest, a wormy splash from a fire
truck, and a gospel sing featuring
local talent.

Cooley PAEC employee of the month


Holmes County resident Anthony
Cooley is PAEC's April Employee of the
Month. As project manager and Florida
Diagnostic Learning Resource System
technology specialist, his major responsi-
bility is to provide assistance and support
in the appropriate use of a variety of
technologies for students, teachers, pro-
fessional staff, and parents in nine PAEC
districts. In addition, he promotes local
awareness, identification, acquisition,
and effective integration of assistive and
adaptive technologies, including FCAT
accommodations. He is constantly
exploring ways to implement technology
in the classroom so that all special needs
children get the opportunity for an opti-
mum education.
In short, he is the go-to-guy for any
and all technology problems the special
areas team faces. His fellow workers
report that he even responds to frantic
phone calls when he is miles away, sitting
in a meeting in Orlando without com-
puter access. He is able to talk the caller
through to a solution.
They further say that Cooley insists
that there are no stupid questions and he
listens patiently and respectfully to each,
concern before giving a clear, straight-


forward explanation with a smile or a
laugh and a joke.
Anthony serves as Region I represen-
tative to the Florida Association for Staff
Development Board and has presented
technology sessions at both state and
national conferences.
Before coming to PAEC nine years
ago, Anthony spent ten years as a


teacher/technology coordinator at
Bonifay Elementary. He earned a B.S.
degree in elementary education and a
master's in educational leadership from
the University of West Florida.
Cooley and his wife, Rachel, live in
Bonifay where she teachers third grade.
They have three sons who love sports,
church activities, and video games.

The children of First United

children's musical, "I Am a
Promise," during Sunday morning
worship on April 20.
The theme of the musical is
that God is still working on all
of us, and that our joy, purpose,
and meaning in' life is found in
saying yes to the person He calls us
to be.

Paul tells us in Romans
3:23 "For all have sinned
and fallen short of the
glory of God." This is
something we all live with.
We know we sin and we are
not proud of this fact, but
why do we sin? I believe
there are three main myths
people use to justify their
sin.
The first myth I will
mention is; give a man a
proper start and he will
continue to live right. Peo-
ple say, "I am just a prod-
uct of my society." They
sometimes say "I was
raised this way and this is
how I have grown." Adam
and Eve had it all. They
were put in the Garden of
Eden with everything they
needed. Adam and Eve
were not perfect, because
no one is. In Romans 3:10
it says, 'As it is written,
there is none perfect, no
not one."
The second myth I will
mention is; reduce the
rules to a minimum and we
will be able to keep them.
There are many rules in
driving, but somehow we
mange to keep them so we
don't get tickets or injured
by breaking them.
However, we don't com-
plain about them all the
time either, because we
feel the importance of driv-
ing. No matter what the
rules are reduced to, we
would wind up breaking
them.
Look once again at
Adam and Eve. They had
one rule; don't eat from the
tree of knowledge of good
and evil. They could not
even keep the one rule.
Mark Twain said, "Tell
them not to eat the ser-
pent." Maybe then we
would be rid of Satan and
our problems would be
over. God made us upright
and gave us a law to keep,
but we try to find different
ways around the law.
Ecclesiastes 7:29 says,
"Truly, this only I have
found: That God made
man upright, but they have
sought out many schemes."
The third myth to why
we sin is; righteousness is a
matter of choosing good


Li t Shine
es Webb


over bad. Many would say,
'As long as I'm not hurting
anyone it can't be wrong.
No one is getting hurt by
what I do." But in actuality,
God is the one who says.
what is right and wrong..
If God says don't do it,
He means don't do it. It
doesn't really matter
-what we think. In Isaiah
55:8-9 the prophet writes,
"For my thoughts are
not your thoughts, neither
are your ways my ways,
saith the Lord. For,
as the heavens are higher
than the earth, so are my
ways higher than'
your ways, and my thoughts
than your thoughts."
Man really has one duty
upon this earth and that is
written in Ecclesiastes
12:13-14, "Let us hear
the conclusion of the
whole matter: Fear
God, and keep his com-
mandments: for this is the
whole duty of man. For
God shall bring every
work into judgment, with
every secret thing, whether
it be good, or whether it be.
evil."
If you are a sinner it is
because you choose to be a
sinner.
Christ came to this earth
and .reduced the rules by
fulfilling the Old Testa-
ment and bringing us the
New Testament.
Even with this we still
fall short. It comes down to
our choice.
Whether we choose to
do what God wants or not.
Not just what we think
feels good or bad.

Ham and eggs: The feast takes a sacrifice


We definitely are living in tragic
times, when politicians are run-
ning their campaigns on a plat-
form which promises to destroy
the family by pledging their alle-
giance to those who are pushing
this great nation to continue to
murder innocent children through
abortion and the immorality of
the homosexual agenda.
No wonder children are killing
their parents, and plotting against
their teachers and beating each
other up so they can put a video
on the internet.
Parents have been killing chil-
dren in America for more than
thirty years in the namq of con-
venience and calling it abortion.
Children and adults have lost
respect for themselves and for
each other, which leads to the
decay of the family, schools,
churches, and our great country.
The real tragedy behind the
tragic news is that we have forgot-
ten the lesson our forefathers
taught and fought for. They
fought for a country where people
could be committed to their God,
country and family. In fighting
and giving themselves for such a


'ji"

.,.





Heart
Tim Hall


country, they taught that commit-
ment to God is the greatest thing
that a man can do for himself, his
family and his country. But today
most people do not even under-
stand the definition of the word
"commitment."
May I share with you a story
that might help you understand
what commitment is all about?
The story begins one day when a
chicken and a hog were walking
through town on the sidewalk. As


they walked pass a church build-
ing they noticed the Sunday
morning sermon posted on the
sign, "Helping the Poor". Notic-
ing the sign the chicken came up
with a suggestion. "Say, brother
hog, why don't we give all the
poor people in town a nice break-
fast of ham and eggs?" The hog
thought a moment and then
replied, "That's all right for you to
say, because for you it's only a
contribution, but for me, it's a
total commitment."
You see, the problems with our
society would be solved if we had
less chickens making contribu-
tions and more men and
women making and keeping
commitments.
When men and women realize
relationships are built on more
than one night stands and are will-
ing to stand before God and vow
their love to each other from the
heart for life. When they realize
that children are a gift from God,
and that as he gives us these pre-
cious gifts, he expects us to give
more than just a contribution of
ourselves to them. When you and
I commit ourselves to our com-


panions, to, our children, and to
our God, we will began to see the
home reestablished as a place of
Love, the church as a place wor-
ship, schools as a place of obtain-
ing true knowledge, and our coun-
try would return to be a country
that is respected rather than
scorned.
God has blessed us with
another beautiful. day, but so
many will not enjoy it because
they are not committed to the one
and only true God, which is the
only relationship that will bring
true joy and peace to their lives.
When Christ was asked what
was the greatest commandment,
meaning the greatest thing that
we should be committed to. He
replied, "And you shall love the
Lord your God with all your
heart, with all your soul, with all
your mind, and with all your
strength.
This is the first commandment.
And the second, like it, is this:
'You shall love your neighbor as
yourself. There is no other com-
mandment greater than these"
Mark 12:30 31 (NKJV). Because
once a person loves God with all


his heart and his neighbor, they
then are committed to God and
the laws of God will come natu-
rally.
Paul seemed to clearly under-
stand this principal of truth as he
closed his letter to the church of
Corinth by saying, "All the
brethren greet you. Greet one
another with a holy kiss.. If any-
one does not love the Lord Jesus
Christ, let him be accursed. O
Lord, come! The grace of our
Lord Jesus Christ be with you" 1
Corinthians 16:20 23 (NKJV).
Why not allow this day to
become a wonderful day as God
intended it. Commit all that you
are to Him. When we truly give
ourselves, our children and all
that is dear to us to God, He will
bless our homes and this country
as he did Abraham in Genesis
22:1-19.

A Mother's Love

I have often wondered why there is such a bond between a
mother and her child. A mother's love is special in so many
ways that nothing can cdmpare with the unique mother/child
relationship. Perhaps the loving
attachment between a mother
and child is due to the wonderful
0 pregnancy experience; for nine
S months, two people are living as
S. one. Perhaps that bond is formed at
birth, when a child seems to know
instinctively who its mother is and
who will care for it. The amazing
\ thing about motherhood is that it
0 makes no difference if a mother his
S one child or ten, they are all equally
G loved in a special way. From the
days of baby bottles and changing
Diapers, to school plays and
graduations, a mother is fervently
loyal and loving to her child. Our
lord Jesus had a wonderful Mother,
0 who was chosen especially for Him
by our Heavenly Father. And, our
Heavenly Father also chose our mothers for us. A loving and
compassionate mother is truly a blessing from God.
As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfortyou; and
ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
K.J.V. Isaiah 66:13
