Some people worked and some
played this Labor Day as Jackson
County residents tried to make
the mostof the holiday weekend.
Although the majority of non-
emergency government workers
were off Monday, many restau-
rants and stores stayed open to
take advantage of the fact that
there were more potential cus-
On Monday, Sandy Bigelow
was busy with her annual Labor
Day sale at Fussy Britches,' a
children's apparel shop on
Lafayette Street in Marianna.
She gave, employees the option
of coming in if they wanted. But
she was doing the lion's share of
work as her day started.
She always has .a holiday
"porch sale," with deep discounts
available to her customers on
merchandise she placed on tables,
outside the store.
She said it's always very suc-
cessful. Now in its seventh year,
it still attracts many out-of-town-
ers as well as local customers.
"The phone' has been ringing
constantly since I got here," she
-said Monday morning. "People
were checking to see if we were
open and if we had this or that.
And I get a lot of walk-ins who
are either on their way to, or
coming from the beaches. With
the economy the way it is, I have
to be open every day I can. Labor
Day is always good for me."

What now for Gulf? Fire complicates drill debate
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON - What now for the
News of another' oil rig fire in the Gulf of
Mexico, so soon after the BP oil spill, has set
off a wave of anxiety along the Gulf Coast
and prompted calls for the government to
extend its six-month ban on deepwater
Just when it seemed the Obama administra-
tion might be ready to lift the unpopular ban,
the fire raises new questions about the dan-
gers of offshore drilling, leaving the industry
wondering when it can get back to work.
"Anything that casts any kind of shadow on
the industry right now certainly complicates
lifting the moratorium," said Bruce Bullock,
director of the Maguire Energy Institute at
Southern Methodist University in Texas. "It
makes it difficult to continue to say that (the
'BP spill) is an aberration."
But while initial reports were frightening,
Bullock and other experts said Thursday's
platform fire is unlikely to have a lasting
Unlike the April explosion of the
Deepwater Horizon rig - which killed 11
people and led to the largest offshore oil spill
in the nation's history - the fire at the
Mariner Energy Inc. platform 100 miles south
of Louisiana killed no one and sent no crude
gushing into the water.
"There's over 100 fires in the Gulf in a
given year. Were it not for the BP incident this
would receive very little coverage," Bullock
said. "This could have happened in a meat
factory or a paint factory or anywhere else."
Even so, environmental groups and some
Democratic lawmakers rushed to denounce
offshore drilling and urged the Obama admin-
istration to extend the six-month deepwater
ban to shallow water as well. The current ban
has shut down drilling at 33 ocean wells, but
there still are more than 7,300 active leases in
the Gulf of Mexico, 58 percent of them in
deep waters, *according to the American
There are about 3,400 platforms operating
in the Gulf, pumping about a third "of
America's domestic oil.
The latest fire "is another reminder that
drilling accidents happen all too frequently.
We cannot afford to lose any more human
lives, nor can we tolerate further damage to
the Gulf and its irreplaceable ocean, ecosys-
tems," said Jacqueline Savitz of the environ-
mental group Oceana.
Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., a leading
critic of BP, said the fire highlights the risks
associated with offshore drilling. Lawmakers
"have a duty to ... all oil workers to make sure
the oil industry's drilling practices are safe
and sound," Markey said.
The Interior Department has said it is con-
sidering lifting the ban for certain categories
of rigs before the scheduled Nov. .30 expira-
tion. But after Thursday's accident the depart-
ment may hesitate to act.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs
said he didn't think the incident would affect
the drilling moratorium. Gibbs resisted any
effort to link the platform fire to the BP spill.
"At this point, based on what we know, I
don't want to marry those two up," Gibbs told
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Friday
that the platform fire appeared to be an indus-
"At this point, it doesn't seem like there
was any oil that was released out so the oil
pollution is not an issue, and it's not another
Deepwater Horizon issue," Salazar said at a
news conference in Anchorage.
Industry representatives also distinguished
between the two incidents, saying that the fire
did not involve drilling and occurred "on a
production platform where wells have
already been drilled and sealed, rather than a
drilling rig like the Deepwater Horizon.

FLORIDAN STAFF WRITER
Almost 150 people turned out
for a meeting in Marianna to talk
about their objections to the new
state septic tank law. Rep. Marti
Coley, R-Marianna, attended and
She voted against the legisla-
tion and said she is prepared to
offer a bill to repeal it if she's re-
elected, provided the law is not
repealed in a special session
Sen. Al Lawson, D-
Tallahassee, who voted for the
bill but has since said he was
unaware of its scope, had pre-
pared a similar bill for any
upcoming special session. If no
such session is called, he will riot
have an opportunity to present it,
as he terms out this year.
The 172-page legislation was
tacked on at the last minute to a
springs protection bill and passed
this ,year. It requires that every
septic tank in Florida be inspect-
ed every five years, and possibly
replaced if the tanks don't meet
the standard stipulated by regula-
tions that are still being drafted.
South Jackson County resident
Richard Harrison hosted the
meeting, held at the Jackson
County Agricultural Center. He
said it turned into a "venting" ses-
sion, which he hadn't necessarily
wanted, but understood..
"People were beside them-
selves, that our government could
do something like this," he said.
"Some very pointed comments
He hoped it would have been
more of a "solutions" meeting
and that, amid all the renting that
was done, people didn't miss the
message he was trying to convey.
"We need to call, write and e-
mail Charlie Crist, to put the nec-
essary pressure on so that he holds
a special session so we can try to
get this thing repealed," he said.
"It's ridiculous that this was put
on at the last minute, and that it
went from one page when it was
first proposed, to 172 pages when
it went before the legislators. A lot
of them didn't even know the
scope of what they were voting
on, they've acknowledged that,
and I think it can be defeated."
Harrison also wants people to
contact legislators around the
'state to voice their objections to
the law, and to call everyone they
know in other parts of the state.
"Northwest Florida, by itself,
can't get it repealed. It's going to
take pressure from all over, on the
other legislators," Harrison said.
"We don't have enough votes on
our own. A lot of people I've
talked to in other areas 'didn't
even know about it before I told
them. Once they did, they were
up in arms. That's the kind of
groundswell we need.'"
At the meeting, Harrison dis-
tributed a list of objections he
suggested be used when making
- calls, sending e-mails and writing
First, he contends the law "ben-
efits septic tank contractors and
pleases environmentalists at the
expense of septic tank owners,
while doing little to decrease pol-

The meeting began with a
quote from Marie Curie: ."You
cannot hope to build a better
world without improving the
individuals in it. To that end,
each of us must work for our
own improvement and, at the
same time, share a general
responsibility for all humanity.
Our particular duty is to aid
those to whom we think we can
be most useful."

that the club is beginning its year
with that mindset, to getting out
in the community, making them-
selves useful and helping others.

Obama calls for more infrastructure spending
By JULIE PACE
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON - President
Barack Obama is asking
Congress to approve at least $50
billion in long-term spending in
the nation's roads, railways and
runways in a pre-election effort
to show he's trying to stimulate
the sputtering economy.
The infrastructure spending is
part of a package of targeted pro-
posals the White House
announced on Monday. With
November's elections for control
of Congress approaching, Obama
planned to discuss the proposal
later Monday at a Labor Day
event in Milwaukee.
The proposals would require
congressional approval, which is
highly uncertain with many legis-
lators and voters worried about
adding to federal deficits that are
already sky-high. , With
Republicans saying spending is
out of control and polls showing
many people want to end
Democrats' control of Congress,
even many Democratic. lawmak-
ers are reluctant to approve new
spending so close to Election
Even if legislators could pass a
bill in the short window between
their return to Capitol Hill in
mid-September and the elections,
the early projects would not cre-
ate jobs immediately. Senior
administration officials, who
would not be quoted by name
before Obama's announcement,
said the initial projects would
lead to new jobs over the course
The officials said the initial
$50 billion would be the begin-
ning of a six-year program* of
transportation improvements, but
they did not give an overall fig-
ure. The proposal has a longer-
range focus than last year's eco-
nomic stimulus bill, which was
more targeted on. immediate job
The goals of the infrastructure
plan include: rebuilding 150,000
miles of roads; constructing and
maintaining 4,000 miles of rail-
ways, enough to go coast-to-
coast; shorter, high speed rail
projects; and rehabilitating or
reconstructing 150 miles of air-
port runways, while also
installing a next generation air
navigation system designed to
reduce travel times and delays.
Obama will also call for. the
creation of a permanent infra-
structure bank that would focus
on funding national and regional
wouldn't say what the total cost
of the infrastructure projects
would be, but did say the initial
$50 billion represents a signifi-
cant percentage. Officials said
the White House would consider
closing a number of special tax
breaks for oil and gas companies
to pay for the proposal.
Obama made infrastructure
improvements a central part of
the $814 billion stimulus
Congress passed last year, but
with that spending winding
down, the economy's growth has
slowed. Officials said this infra-
structure package differs from
the stimulus because it's aimed at
long-term growth, while still
focusing on creating jobs in the

CBS' "Early Show," Labor
Secretary Hilda Solis said the

tions could be dismal for

promised to unveil a series of
new measures on the economy.

Worried about the fragile

but the willingness to raise
taxes is waning among the

and isn't enough to keep

employers have added only
78,000 jobs per month, on
average, in the past three
months. It would take at
least 200,000 jobs a month
to keep up with population
growth and rehire millions
of unemployed Americans.
Many economists don't
expect that pace of job
growth until next year. As a
result, the unemployment
rate could exceed 9 percent
for many more months.

MIAMI - More than 80
years ago,' Germany sold
tens of thousands of bonds
to American investors in an
effort to recover financially
from World War I. Later,
Adolf Hitler used some of
the money raised by those
bonds to build the powerful
Nazi war machine that
would ravage Europe dur-
ing World War II.
Now, a half-dozen U.S.
bondholders are turning to
federal courts in an effort to
force Germany to make
good on its promise to
repay the debts, which
today could be worth hun-

Gulf Coast states with impact from
In Louisiana, the decline was 65
percent. In Mississippi, the drop was
56 percent. In the Florida Panhandle,
which started seeing signs of oil on
the beaches in early June, there was a
35 percent reduction. In Alabama, the
decline was bnly 8 percent.
The Panhandle numbers saw
spending drop from $38.3 million in
May to $24.9 million in June. That
includes a drop in spending for lodg-
. ing from $6.6 million to $4 million.
Wilke is hopeful, however, that the
numbers will turn around soon.
"What's encouraging is that the
tourism industry after a disaster is
fairly resilient," he said.

Bautista tops majors
with 43 home runs
BY DUSTIN KENT .
FLORIDAN SPORTS EDITOR .
The amazing run by Jose Bautista doesn't .
seem to have an end in sight.
The former Chipola slugger, now an All- "
Star right fielder for the Toronto Blue Jays, .
has continued his torrid home run pace and
leads the majors with 43 round-trippers.
The 29-year-old Bautista's previous career
high in home runs was 16, which he hit in
2006 for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
But 2010 has been a monumental break-
through for the Dominican outfielder.
He has had three different months of dou- ', '
ble-digit home runs, with 12 coming in May,
11 in July, and 12 in August.
With 25 games left in the season, Bautista
has a legitimate chance to reach the 50-home
run barrier, with no other player in MLB like-
ly to come close to the mark.
In fact, Bautista leads all American League
hitters by 10 home runs, and is eight clear of .'
National League leader Albert Pujols.
Bautista's former college coach, Chipola's
Jeff Johnson, said he is in regular contact
with his former player and couldn't be happi-

"As a coach, to have had the opportunity to
bring him over to the U.S. from the

Not even close.
He cherishes fatherhood for
many reasons, including one he
rarely speaks about.
Leonard * Hankerson Sr. was
killed Jan. 3,' 1989, with authori-
ties saying at the time he was shot
to death by someone who wanted
to sell crack cocaine on his street.
His son was born 27 days later.
Leonard Hankerson II hears the
stories to this day, about what
kind of man his father was, how
he was one of talent-rich
Broward County's best basketball
players at one time.

FiVe standout Bulldog brothers remembered
BY SHELIA MADER
With the Marianna High
Bulldogs football team celebrating
85 years, no two decades stand out
more than the 1950s and '60s,
when the Whitehead brothers were
on the field, from 1954 to 1965.
Jamie, Ronnie, Bud, Willie, and
Gary Whitehead followed in the
footsteps of their uncle, Lamar
Whitehead, who was a Bulldog
standout seven years prior to the
brothers donning Bulldog jerseys.
Of all the brothers, Bud
Whitehead had the most success in
post-prep football. After four suc-
cessful years at Marianna High as
a halfback and defensive end, he
signed to play with the Florida
While at Marianna, Bud played
under Harry "Fuzz" Howell, with
Charlie Cox and Gene Bridges
assisting. In his senior year, Bud
was named All Big Bend, All
North West Florida Conference
and co-captain of his team.
Bud added four more years of
outstanding play for the
Seminoles. While at FSU, he
\played under Tom Nugent, and
Perry Moss for one season, before
Bill Peterson took over during
Bud's final two years. His per-
formance on the field at FSU
gained him looks from several
teams from both the American
Football League and the National
The San Diego Chargers drafted
him following graduation. Bud
spent eight years as a defensive
back with the Chargers, who were
then with the American Football
League. During his tenure with the
Chargers, he played with Hall of
Fame receiver Lance Alworth, as
well as running back Keith
Lincoln and quarterback John
Upon his retirement from the
Chargers, Bud returned to FSU,
where he coached running backs
for two years. Bud left his alma
mater to return to the pros, this
time as a defensive back coach for
the New Orleans Saints for five
years. Bud then returned to
California and spent seven years
as a free agency scout for the

anniversary of Marianna football is celebrated this season. -Mark Skinner/Floridan
Below: Bud Whitehead in action for the Bulldogs. From the 1957 Majaflo yearbook.
One of the more memorable
moments for Bud was playing
along side Ernie. Ladd with the
Chargers, a 6-foot, 10-inch, 400
pound defensive tackle.
"He was a giant, one of the
biggest guys I'd ever seen," Bud
Equally impressive for the
Bulldogs was Willie Whitehead
was equally impressive for the
Bulldogs. He graduated in 1958,
and also played under Howell.
Willie played halfback and defen-
sive back, before going to FSU
where he played for three years.
Jamie Whitehead played under
Harry Howell as a fullback and a
linebacker and was named
Bulldog MVP his senior year.
Gary Whitehead graduated in
1963, having played defensive
back and back-up quarterback for
the Bulldogs. Gary played under
coaches Mack Rooks, George
Riley and Charlie Cox.
Ronnie Whitehead was the last
of the Whitehead brothers to sport
the purple and gold.
He graduated in 1965, after hav-
ing success on the Bulldog field as
a running back. Ronnie was a
walk-on at FSU, and played his
freshman year there.
Bud resides in California, while
Ronnie lives in Virginia and Jamie
at Red Bay. Willie and Gary both
returned to Marianna after retiring,
and can be seen in the stands sup-
porting their Bulldogs on Friday
nights. Bud returns to Marianna
annually in September, and joins
his brothers in support of his

Dear Annie: I am a 13-year-old girl and
think I might have breast cancer. I looked at-the
signs online, and I'm scared. How can I bring
this up to my mom? As far as I know, there's no
history of it in my family. - Worried in
Dear Worried: We're not sure why you
think you have breast cancer. If you found a
lump, please know that many are benign cysts
and harmless. However, it makes
sense to have any -anomaly
checked out by a -physician.
Bring this letter to your mom, and
tell her you wrote it. And, Mom:
Please make an appointment
with a doctor so your daugh-
ter can rest easy knowing she
is OK. We hope she is.
Dear Annie: I read with
interest the letter from
"Michigan Molly," whose
friends invite themselves to her summer
My best friend, "Sherri," and her hus-
band own a cottage in northern Michigan.
Every summer, she invites my family to
spend a couple of weeks with them. I always
make sure to help with laundry, dishes and
food when we visit. Over the winter, my hus-
band spent a lot of time helping them renovate
the cottage. My son absolutely loves it there,
and I've come to know many of the summer
residents and look forward to seeing them.
Months ago, Sherri invited my son and me
for a week in early August because she wanted
my help with some event. Two days before, I
saw Sherri at a party, and she said she no longer
needed me that week and I'd be up anyway a
few weeks later. Annie, I totally understand
that it is her cottage and she can invite or unin-
vite whoever she wants. However, I planned
part of my summer around this week and
turned down other opportunities for my chil-
dren. What hurts the most is that my son won't
be able to experience, a summer vaca-
tion that he really loves. He talks
about going up there all the
time. Her telling me two days
before seems so callous that
. t I've decided not to go back
";- again. It's like I've lost my best
friend, and my heart is break-
ing for my son.
How do I deal with this?
her. I'm not a good communi-
cator. - Sitting at Home in
" ,Dear Michigan: You are
\ interpreting this much more harshly than
you need to. Sherri probably has no idea that
you restructured your summer around her
cottage invitation and assumed it was no big
deal for you to skip that week. By not return-
ing, you, not Sherri, are depriving your son of
a wonderful experience. Either tell her it hurt
you that she canceled at the last minute, or let
it go and pretend it never happened.
Miyamoto Musashi, a famous samurai who died around age
60 in 1645, said, "There is timing in the whole life of a warrior,
in his thriving and declining, in his harmony and discord.
Similarly, there is timing in the way of the merchant, in the rise
and fall of capital. All things entail rising and falling timing."
That is so true at the bridge table. Contracts often require
careful timing - the sequence in which the tricks are played
to gain the needed winners. In today's deal, West leads the
spade queen, against four spades. Which 10 tricks should
declarer take, and in what order?
The original declarer anticipated winning four spades, three
hearts, one diamond, one club and one diamond ruff in the
dummy. So, he won the first trick with dummy's spade king
and ducked a diamond. West persisted with a second trump.
South won, cashed his diamond ace, ruffed a diamond on the
board, played a heart to his ace, and led another heart.
Disaster! West ruffed, cashed his diamond king, and shifted to
a club. With no dummy entry left, declarer went down one.
Yes, South was unlucky that the hearts broke 5-1. But sup-
pose, at trick four, instead of cashing the diamond ace and then
taking his diamond ruff, South cashes the heart ace and plays
another heart? If West ruffs, South wins an overtrick because
he still has a dummy entry: his diamond ruff. And if West dis-
cards, declarer wins in the dummy and plays the last top heart,
pitching his club loser. The diamond ruff, declarer's 10th trick,
comes a moment later.

Little Rock 9 member Jefferson Thomas dies
BY TOM PARSONS
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -
Jefferson Thomas was fast and
athletic and often played pickup
basketball with white students
while growing up in Little Rock
in the 1950s.
But when Thomas became one
of nine black students to integrate
Arkansas' largest high school,
many of his basketball buddies
weren't happy to see him in their
"One of them said, 'Well I
don't mind playing basketball or
football with you or anything.
You guys are good at sports.
Everybody knows that, but
you're just not smart enough to
sit next to me in the classroom,'"
Thomas recalled years later.
The pioneer in school desegre-
gation died Sunday of pancreatic
cancer at age 67, according to a
statement from Carlotta Walls
LaNier, who also enrolled at
Central High School in 1957 and
is president of the Little Rock
The integration fight was a first
real test of the federal govern-
ment's resolve to enforce a 1954
Supreme Court order outlawing
racial segregation in the nation's
public schools. After Gov. Orval
Faubus sent National Guard
troops to block Thomas and eight
other students from entering the
school, President Dwight
Eisenhower ordered in the
Army's 101st Airborne Division.
Soldiers stood in the school
halls and escorted the students as
they went from classroom to
Each of the Little Rock Nine
received Congressional Gold
Medals shortly after the. 40th
anniversary of their enrollment.
President Bill Clinton presented
the medals in 1999 to Thomas,
LaNier, Melba Patillo. Beals,
Minnijean Brown Trickey,
Elizabeth Eckford, Ernest Green,
Gloria Ray Karlmark, Terrence
Roberts and Thelma Mothershed
Clinton issued a statement
Monday, calling Thomas "a true
hero, a fine public servant, and
profoundly good man."
"Jefferson and I had a long
visit when he came to my
Presidential Center for the 50th
anniversary in 2007,. and I was
struck again by his quiet dignity
and kindness. America is a
stronger, more diverse, and more
tolerant nation because of the life
he lived and the sacrifices he
made," Clinton said.
In 2008, then President-elect
Barack Obama sent Thomas and
other members of the Little Rock
Nine special invitations to his
inauguration as the nation's first
black president. During his cam-
paign, he had said the Little Rock
Nine's courage in desegregating
Central High helped make the
opportunities in his life possible.
"Even at such a young age, he
had the courage to risk his own
safety, to defy a governor and a
mob, and to walk proudly into
that school even though it would
have been far easier to give up
and turn back," Obama said in a
statement Monday. "Our nation
owes Mr. Thomas a debt of grati-
tude for the stand he took half a
century ago, and the leadership
he showed in the decades since."
Thomas played a number of
sports and was on the track team
in-junior high school. Beals said
he was nicknamed "Roadrunner,
because he was so fast. You could
sometimes avoid danger by run-

moment to the crisis.
"He was funny, he had a most
extraordinary sense of humor. He.

what, he always had something
refreshing and funny to say," she
said. "It could be the most horri-
ble day and he would say 'Yes,
but how are,you dressed and are
Thomas also brought a bit of
levity to the 2007 commemora-
tion marking the 50th anniver-
sary of the integration fight -
letting the audience know how
angry LaNier was with him when
he stood up and cheered at a
Central High Tigers pep rally.
Thomas thought the white stu-
dents were carrying the school
flag and. yelling the school cheer.
He said LaNier glared at him and
later set him straight: It was the
Confederate flag, and the stu-
dents were singing "Dixie."
The youngest of seven .chil-
dren, Thomas served in the U.S.
Army in Vietnam after gradua-
tion. He later earned a bachelor's
degree in business administration
from Los Angeles State College
and worked as an accounting
clerk with the U.S. Department
of Defense, retiring in 2004.
Following the 2008 election,
Thomas said in an interview that
he supported Hillary Rodham
Clinton in the Ohio primary and
he also liked former Arkafisas
Gov. Mike Huckabee, who made
a bid for the Republican nomina-
"It would have been a hard
decision for me to make if
Huckabee was running against
Obama," Thomas added.

NEW YORK - Colleges

clear idea how they'll be
Some are taking advan-

"People who just lost

real estate as an investment
portfolio," Wellman said:
Colleges "are banking that

Va. woman devours 181 chicken wings in contest
By CRISTIAN SALAZAR
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
NEW YORK - The Black Widow of eating
contests gobbled up nearly 181 chicken wings
in 12 minutes, devouring the national champi-
onship record in Buffalo on Sunday.
"I'm so happy!" said Sonya Thomas, who ate
4.86 pounds of chicken wings to win the con-
test, besting world eating marvel Joey Chestnut
at the ninth annual National Buffalo Wing
Buffalo, about 300 miles northwest of New
York, is said to be the birthplace of the wings,
typically fried and covered in tangy vinegar and
Chestnut, America's No. 1 professional eater,
was favored to win Sunday's competition. He
came in second after eating 169 chicken wings,
or 4.55 pounds.
This was the first time Thomas, of
Alexandria, Va., and Chestnut, of San Jose,
Calif., faced off in a chicken wing eating con-
test. They went at it "neck and neck," said Drew
Cerza, the founder of the festival, which was
inspired by the 2001 Bill Murray comedy
"Osmosis Jones," about a compulsive eater.
"They pushed each other really hard," Cerza
said. "Joey is so strong. He's got great jaw
strength. But Sonya's so fast with the hand."
Thomas, who's 5 feet tall and weights 105
pounds, calls herself the Black Widow because
she often defeats bigger male competitors -
Chestnut is 6-foot-2 and weights 230 pounds -
in eating contests. She set the previous wings
record in 2005, when she ate 174 in 12 minutes.
She also previously set eating records for
oysters, hard-boiled eggs,, cheesecake and
jalapeno peppers. She won her first competitive
eating event in 2003.
The sprightly 43-year-old said she owed
Sunday's triumph to her fancy finger work.
"Sometimes if I try to chew too much I slow
down," she said. "I used my hands more than
During the public contest, in front of thou-
sands of people, she twirled the wings, in her
'small fingers while quickly tearing off the meat
with her teeth and lips.
Her cheeks were covered in a sheen of orange
Buffalo sauce by the end.
But she said she was still hungry afterward,
calling.the wings "an appetizer." About an hour
later, she made a guest appearance in the
Ridiculously Hot Buffalo Wing Eating Contest
and ate 20 more.
"The hottest wings!" she said. "I had to drink
a lot of water."
Sonya Thomas is proclaimed the winner at
2010 Wing Fest in Buffalo, N.Y, Sunday.
