Local leaders remembered La-
mar Townsend Monday. The long-
time business and civic leader, 74,
died Friday and was laid to rest
"Every county has them and
every county needs them," said
Chamber of Commerce Executive
Director Ted Everett of leaders like
Townsend. "Lamar was one of the
best we had."
Everett went on to praise the
former Chamber Board director
for his guidance when Everett first
assumed his current'position.
"He was one of the first to come
to me and advised me from his ex-
- perience and background," Everett
said. Everett praised Townsend's
"true Christianity" and noted that,
"He never had a harsh word for
anyone. This man had tremendous
faith and he definitely walked the
walk." .
Everett also praised Townsend
for his service as a volunteer Cham-
ber Ambassador. "The Chamber
was very lucky to have a man like
Lamar," he said.

Board approves
meeting on issue
Managing Editor
Vernon City officials were on
hand Thursday to ask for assis-
tance from the Washington County
Sheriff's Office. The officials came
before the Board of County Com-
missioners to ask for a WCSO sub-
station in old Vernon High School.
The Board agreed to write a letter
and set up a meeting between the
officials and Sheriff Bobby Had-
dock about the issue.
The old school is being reno-
vated to serve as the new City Hall
and to provide space to various
agencies upon request. The present
City Hall will be displaced when
Hwy. 79 is four-laned.
One agency City officials clearly
want in the old school is WCSO.
City Council Members John Paul
Cook, Jr. and Vivian Brewer served
as spokespersons before the Board,
with several other officials, busi-
ness leaders and private citizens
from Vernon present.
Brewer said she contacted the
Sheriff's Office and offered a site
in old VHS for a Vernon substa-
tion. "Since we have a crew over
there now fixing the building up
for the City Hall this would be an
ideal time for the Sheriff's Office
to pick out a space," Brewer said.
She said that Haddock appeared to
be interested but there had been no
further discussion.
Commissioner Ronnie Finch
said the south end of the county
needed more service. "The south
end is where it's happening and
they need all the help they can get,"
he said.
In an interview Friday, Haddock
said that a substation of some sort
at old VHS is a possibility, but
said he never committed to such a
project. "We were discussing recent
burglaries and I casually mentioned
getting room at the school," Had-
dock said. "I never made a formal
With the probable passage of
the "super homesteading" consti-
tutional amendment on the ballot
in January 2007, the County could
lose about 15 percent of its 2008-
09 tax revenue. This would mean
a loss of at least $1 million in rev-
enue, and Haddock said he would
have to watch the affect on his
budget. He agreed that Vernon and
the south end of the county are in
the middle of "rapid change."
Haddock also noted that extra
deputies and SWAT have been op-
erating in the Vernon area recently,
leading some citizens to call WCSO
. and ask about the additional person-
nel. "Some even think we are down
there harassing them," Haddock
said. He reassured the public that is
not the case. Haddock noted that a
suspect was arrested in the theft of
copper wire from old VHS.

Volunteers needed
Want life to have more meaning? Want to do something
that is satisfying and of great service to the community?
Then become a Hospice of the Emerald Coast volunteer!
Volunteers are needed in the area to service families of the
terminally ill. Becoming a hospice volunteer is similar to
helping a neighbor in need. The only qualification required
is a desire to help someone in need. Medical skills are not
necessary, one doesn't even need a college degree; All that
is needed is to sign up for hospice volunteer training.
Anyone that can give an hour or two a month to a neigh-
bor in your area, call Sheila Glover, volunteer coordinator
at Hospice of the Emerald Coast, 850-526-3577 or 866-

Contact system
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles (DHSMV) has an emergency contact information
system. This system allows Floridians to voluntarily provide
emergency contact information online, giving law enforce-
ment immediate access to this information and making it
easier for them to speak with someone quicker in cases of
emergency. Tracking down a loved one can sometimes be
an issue for law enforcement and this new tool will be a
great one to have.

Pilot program defunded by state legislature

A pilot project that trained
nonviolent prison inmates to

Board representative said
the program was discon-
tinued because the 2007
Florida Legislature did not
fund Florida Rebuild for
a second year. Executive
Director Richard Williams
said no other funds are avail-
able to support what, by all
accounts, was a successful
training program.
"Nobody foresaw the
downturn in housing, and
revenues to the state were
down. The Legislature had
to make tough decisions,"
said Williams.
The inmate training pro-

bining resources from the

Paul Register was hired
by WHTC to manage the
program, which operated out
HCI and the St. Mary's pit in
Washington County. He said
the $400,000 budget was
used to lease two bulldoz-
ers, an excavator and a back
hoe; provide a small office at
the St. Mary's pit, pay three
salaries, rent a portable toilet
and purchase fuel.
About 60 student-inmates
were trained to operate
heavy equipment before the
program lost its funding.

Al Cox, assistant direc-
tor at WHTC, has been in-
volved since the program's
beginning. WHTC operates
a heavy equipment train-
ing program, so he knew
how to craft a high-quality
program offsite. "Anderson-
Columbia met with us. They
told us, from an employer's
standpoint, what an operator
needs to know. We formed
the curriculum based on
that," Cox said.
Register described the
curriculum in action. "We
trained six inmates at a time.
The first group spent six
weeks in the classroom,
learning through books,
videos and a simulator Cat-
erpillar donated. Then, they
came out here to the pit for
six weeks. They learned to
load trucks, mix dirt for road

beds, clear land, push trees
and dig holding ponds," he
said. When the initial six
inmates moved to the field,
another group of six began
classroom work at HCI.
Nonviolent, interested in-
mates from throughout north
Florida were transferred to
HCI to train.

State loses program like-
ly to reduce recidivism
Register said it costs the
state $28,000 per year to
house an inmate. "If 15 of
the 60 make it, the program
has paid for itself."
Making it, according to
Register, is getting out, get-
ting a job and staying out
of jail.
"I had them tell me they
wouldn't have sold drugs if
they had $50-$100 of their
paycheck left after paying
bills," he said. "This pro-
gram gave them hdpe for
a better life when they got
Cox said, "Inmates gave
up work release to partici-
pate in this program. They
were excited to be able to
get out and make $12-$14

When my father Ronald
Reagan said one of his mot-
tos was "trust but verify," he
was talking about dealing
with the Soviet Union. If
he was talking about pres-
ent-day Washington I think
he'd simply say, "Don't trust
- ever."
He'd have good reason.
Some of the people running
things today would steal the
pennies off a dead man's
eyes, and then claim they
needed it to make every-
body's life better.
Look at the current fu-
ror over the (fortunately)
now-dead Comprehensive
Immigration Reform bill,
sold so deceptively it would
shock the worst snake-oil
Last year's attempt to
enact a similar bill failed, so
the powers-that-be decided-
to make another try of im-
posing this ill-begotten piece
of legislation on the nation.
Under the leadership of the
feckless Sen. Harry Reid, the
supporters got together and
tossed out all the Senate's
time-honored procedures
by crafting the bill not in
committee but in secret,
behind closed doors, and
then sought to ram their 800-
page bill down the throats of
their fellow senators before
any of them had a chance to
study it.
Standing on the floor of
the Senate, Sen. Jim Bun-
ning, R-Ky., said: "Here we
go again. Three weeks ago
a significant majority of the
Senate rejected this flawed
immigration bill and the
flawed process that lead to
it. But now it is back. It just
won't go away.
"One of the key reasons
the bill failed the first time
around was the flawed pro-
cess, or the lack of process,
that led to the bill. In the
Senate, an idea normally
takes months if not years to
become a bill and pass. But
instead of letting the bill
develop through a delibera-
tive process, a few Senators
wrote the bill in secret. They
held no committee hearings.
There was no committee
report. In fact, Senators did
not even see the actual bill
until several days into the
Bunning, a storied mem-
ber of the Baseball Hall of
Fame, threw a strike across
the plate when he noted that
"the Majority Leader is tak-
ing an unprecedented step to
shut off the rights of Senators
to debate and amend a bill.
That is not the Senate."
The bill died, but not
because the powers-that-be
wanted it to, but because the
vast majority of Americans
wanted it dead. They had
the good sense not to trust
the powerful forces behind
it and they prevailed because
trustworthy men such as Jim
Bunning stood with them.
We'll need men like Jim
Bunning to stop another de-
ceptive measure the liberals
now running the Congress
from depriving us of our
freedom of speech.
Left-wingers in the Con-
gress such as California's

it impossible for talk radio
to survive. Should their so-
called "fairness doctrine" be
revived, radio station owners
would be so restricted they
would not be able to program
conservative talk radio and
keep their licenses.

talk show host said some-

forced to find a liberal and

The fuel of the future

Here's a tidbit for you:
Studies show that a cat is
more likely to survive a
fall from the 12th floor of a
building than a fall from the
seventh floor. The research
tells us that it takes the fall-
ing feline about eight floors
to realize what is happening
and then adjust to the cir-
Studies show?
Where did that grant
come from? Perhaps I am
naive, but I am not quite sure
what benefit this research
has for us. Unless, of course,
you happen to be a stunt-cat
' If there is time and money
for cat research what about
algae? Stay with me.
In the July 2007 issue of
'Popular Science magazine
there is an interesting article
about algae as a promising
source for the production of
.biodiesel. Algae-fuel is still
in the research and develop-
ment stages, but it already
appears to have several ben-
efits over fuel obtained from
corn or soybeans.
The benefits:

One Word

Andrew Hollinger

Of the 434 million avail-
able acres of cropland in the
U.S. enough algae could be
grown on 95 million acres to
produce enough biodiesel to
"replace all petroleum-based
transportation fuel in the
U.S." Better even than that,
algae can be grown in the
arid and infertile land of the
American desert.
Algae needs carbon di-
oxide to grow. By placing
algae reactors next to power

plants and other factories,
the reactors will get the car-
bon dioxide they need while
reducing the emissions of
the factory.
For those of you count-
ing, that one is a two-fer:
biodiesel burns cleaner and
the algae eat up factory
emissions-two ways to re-
duce greenhouse gases and
our reliance on petroleum (a
resource we can't control the
production or price of).
The production of biodie-
sel is something we can
control versus petroleum
which we have to find new
stores of to keep drilling.
Thi's control over our own
fuel would be a boon to our
economy (cheaper fuel for
everyone) and affect our
foreign policy.
The drawbacks:
This is new and a change.
And we tend to resist
This change requires
money to get off the ground.
Fortunately, the algae-fuel
process is being designed to
be more cost-efficient and
a cheaper option than gas.

Unfortunately, research can
be costly while there is no
product to profit from.
If, for any reason, the
price of petroleum gasoline
fell down to $20 per barrel
it is likely that any positive
movement toward greener
fuel would be halted in lieu
of what we know already
It comes down to the
consumer. At the point that
the environment woes and
gas prices finally break us,
we will see government sub-
sidies for green fuel - the
same way petroleum re-
ceives subsidies now.
As for me? I am sold on
algae. I put a lot of miles on
the road, though, so I am
an easy sell. In fact, I've
already begun my own algae
farm. I keep it in the bottom
drawer of my refrigerator.
Give it a few months and
I'll be rolling on my own
store of green gasoline.

year after serving 20 years
as the county administrator
in Jackson, Santa Rosa and
Manatee counties.
The Governor and the
Florida legislature are very
close to inflicting great harm
on the citizens of our won-
derful state. They want to
severely restrict the amount
of money that locally elected
city and county commission-
ers can spend on basic vital
services requested by local
These services include,
but are not limited to law
enforcement, emergency
medical services, commu-
nity care for the elderly, local
programs for children and

partnerships that thrive to
attract good, clean industry,
in many counties, the ability
to purchase environmentally
sensitive lands, ability to at-
tract and retain high caliber
public employees, water
and waste water services so
basic to all of us, and parks
and recreational programs.
One can easily recognize
that all of these are quality

The Governor and Legis-
lature need to take the time
required to address this very
important issue. They are
preparing to make final deci-

sions on an issue where it is
unclear to all of them what
the resulting impacts will-
be. A little honesty on their
part at this juncture would
be helpful.
I believe that some belt
tightening on the local level
is justified. An approach that
I think is workable, is to cap
local property taxes at the
current levels and then cap
future property tax expen-
ditures to a small percentage
each year over current lev-
els. This approach allows lo-
cal governments to plan for
future tight budgets without
abruptly having to cut vital
services to residents.
For Gov. Crist to say
there will be no cuts in vital
services such as law en-
forcement and fire rescue,
shows at best his total lack
of knowledge in local gov-
ernment and at worst his
political shallowness that is
designed to grossly mislead

Florida residents. Every
county and city official in
the state should be "ticked
off' to put it nicely, at the
Governor's recent comments
reported in the Palm Beach
Post. He was quoted as say-
ing, "If they (local officials)
let fire fighters and police
officers go, I'll campaign
against them so they lose at
the next ballot box...".
The Governor's state-
ment shows a total lack of
sensitivity to the awesome
responsibility that local offi-
cials have in finding enough
money year after year to pro-
vide needed and requested
services for the citizens they

One A for county schools in state report card

Kids seated in the bleachers pay close attention to instructions by the Army National
Guardsmen who taught the two-day Leadership Training program.

Guard teaches leadership at CHS

Staff Writer
Approximately 40 area
boys and girls registered
for Thursday's leadership
program for kids between
the ages of 13-17. The Youth
Leadership Training admin-
istered by three members
of Florida National Guard
out of Camp Blanding in
St. Augustine allowed kids
to get paid while learning
significant requirements
for success. Training was
held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
,in the Chipley High School
Several members of
Washington County Health
Department were on hand
to work with the students.
Chipola Workforce Board
also was a sponsor of the
event which served breakfast
and lunch to the youngsters,
as well as fruit and cookie
A handcuff game played
shortly after lunch on Thurs-
day, consisted of two-person
teams and two ropes with
nooses at each end. The team
members stood facing each
other with both wrists cuffed
at the end of the rope. Just
before the second person
put his wrists in the cuffs,
the rope was looped through
his teammate's, effectively
linking them together. The
team members tried stepping
through the ropes, twisting
their bodies to get on the
other side of their buddy but
no matter how they cavorted,
they still wound up linked
The solution was sorta
like working a Rubic's cube.
Once they were told that one
rope was a little longer than
the other, some of them fig-
ured out how to get free.

two-member teams attempt-
ing to free themselves from
rope handcuffs on a basket-
ball court.
National Guardsmen tak-
ing part in the two-day event
were Staff Sergeant Greg
Johnson, First Sgt. Wesley
Erb, and Cpt. Arthur Gaines,
who served as leader in the
low ropes event. The men
teach Youth Leadership as a
regular part of their jobs with
the Army National Guard.
"This is the most fun I've
had in a while," Julie Wells
of Bonifay said after the
hand cuff event.
Lacey Whitehurst enjoyed
the course, and said she felt
it should be offered again in
the future. "This class is very
good and well-organized
training," she explained.
Parents had to sign a per-
mission slip when the kids
registered with Donna Gunt-
er of the health department.
They also registered for an
Ipod and other prizes.
A very active game of
dodge -ball had the boys
lining up on one. side of the
court with the girls on the
other. Between them sat a
row of balls. At a signal,
team members raced to pick
up the balls and begin throw-

solution was to move the arms out near the shoulders.

ing them at the other team.
A couple of the National
Guardsmen helped the girls.
They seemed to enjoy the.
game as much as the kids.
During the morning, the
boys and girls had a chance
to climb the rock wall, a tall
cement-like edifice with toe-
holds. Rappelling ropes were
attached to the top.
Damion Potter was catch-
ing his breath in the bleach-
ers when he noted that "this
is very fun and educational
for us young people."

Three local schools earned
A grades and five more
earned B grades as results
of the annual school "report
card" came in Friday.
Two schools dropped a
grade while several others
maintained their grades from
last year. One school, Chi-
pley High, was just one point
shy of earning an A.
Vernon Elementary Prin-
cipal Kathy Cadwell cred-
ited a cohesive approach to
education for her school's
fifth A in a row.
"We look hard at our data
and there is a lot of hard
work from students and
teachers. Parents, faculty,
staff and students... It's a
team effort," she said.
Jerry Register, principal
at Kate M. Smith Elemen-
tary, received a call about
his school's improved grade
while he and Assistant Prin-
cipal Yolanda Kolmetz were
at an educational leadership
training academy in Tampa
to learn to better use FCAT
data for student analysis and
build school-wide teams.
"We've begun building a
team and it looks like (from
the grade increase) we've
got a good start. That's what
it's going to take," he said.
/ Register noted that, al-
though KMS improved a
letter grade, the school still
did not make federal No
Child Left Behind Adequate
Yearly Progress standards.
"It's our third year not
making AYP and the school
begins facing penalties. It's
either pass or fail," Register
said. "We'll stay with what
we've been doing, but-look
more closely at the needs of
Statewide, as always,
there was considerable ef-
fort to interpret the grading
formula, which has changed
several times over the past
several years.

Other comments included
Megan Foumier's "I think
that this program is exciting
and enjoyable."
Many of the kids hoped
the training would be an
regular event.
"I think that this class
is very influencing, and
they should have it next
year,"said Morgan McK-
enzie. "We would like to
thank Drug Demand Reduc-
tion Program - Mr. Erb, Mr.
Grimes and Mr. Johnson for
coming here."

ARC celebrates Mardi Gras in Chipley, presents awards

Donna Dykes/WCN
Sandy Pritchard presents the Distinguished Community
Service Award to Robin Pemberton, a member of the
ARC board of directors. It is given by District 3, Florida
Department of Transportation which feels that commu-
nity service is very important. Pemberton has canvassed
local communities to raise funds for ARC.

Donna Dykes/WCN
ARC's Direct Service
Employee of the Year is
Chanell Haddix, who has
worked as an instructor's
aide in the Nycon Shipping
and Receiving Department
and in the Community
Exploration Department.
She has been instrumen-
tal in raising hundreds of
dollars to ensure ARC's
participation in the Special
Olympics competition on
the local and state levels.

Donna Dykes/WCN
ARC looked at Tina Baxley
as someone to fill one a
residential manager's spot
when it was suddenly va-
cated. She possesses a sin-
cere devotion to residents
and consumers and is con-
stantly introducing new
and innovative ideas for
their care and in supervis-
ing the group home staff.

Mardi Gras came to Wash-
ington County June 28, and
it proved to make a colorful
affair. ARC of Washington-
Holmes counties used the
theme for its annual meeting
and awards night.
The official Mardi Gras
colors of purple which rep-
resents justice, green which
stands for faith, and gold,
for power, were used lav-
ishly through the ARC com-
munity room, especially in
helium-filled balloons lining
the doors.
Trinkets, necklaces of
colored beads, whistles,
masks and other fun items,
were given to guests as
they entered the commu-
nity room. A king and queen
were crowned and reigned
over the festivities.
Joyce Gilmore gave the
invocation and Greg Good-
son, Adam Owens and An-
drew Scott led the pledge to
the flag.
President Ronnie Wright
welcomed guests and gave
the president's report. He
introduced Sandy Pritchard,
who joined ARC as ex-
ecutive director last Octo-
ber. "Sandy has proven her
leadership capabilities with
the staff and the board of
directors," he said.
Wright also introduced
two new members of the
ARC board of directors.
Joyce Caylor and Robin
Pemberton "bring fresh ideas
and new approaches for our
agency," he said.
When Mavis Smith re-
tired as executive director
in February, she said she
planned to remain active
as a parent and advocate in
the field of developmental
disabilities. So it was no
surprise when she, her hus-
band, Shelton, and daughter,
Debbie, attended the ARC

Firm eyeing Mossy Head for alternative fuels plant

An Alabama company is
eyeing Walton County for a
new biodiesel and ethanol
production plant.
Gulf Coast Energy Inc. of
Livingston, Ala., is negotiat-
ing with Walton County to
buy or lease 50 acres at the
county's industrial park in
Mossy Head for the plant.
If all goes well, part of
the $165 million production
plant could go online in as
little as six or seven months
from the date a deal is final-

Gulf Coast Energy is tout-
ing the plant as the first in the
world that will produce both
biodiesel and ethanol.
"We don't know of any-
body else that's making both
products in the same place
concurrently," Warner said.
If built, the plant will be
the first alternative fuel pro-
duction facility in Northwest
Florida and one of three fa-
cilities that produce ethanol

Bethel Primitive
Baptist Church
A few weeks ago, the
"prattler" committed himself
to write on Bethel Primitive
Baptist Church.
This church was con-
stituted May 7, 1887, with
seven people coming forth
as charter members. They
were James L. Pate, Joshua
Brock, Thomas Brock Jr.,
Richard Leavins, Sarah Bai-
ley, Nancy J. Brock and
Olivia Pate.
Bethel Primitive Baptist
Church is the church the
"Prattler" was reared in. I
united with the church in
1952 and was baptized in
Holmes Creek at Vernon,
along with my brother, Jim
Wells, who joined at the
same time. Elder Carlton
W. Todd, long-time pastor
at Bethel, administered our
Down through the years, I
have had opportunity to read
the old minutes of Bethel
Primitive Baptist Church.
I would say in past years,
I only "read" them. In re-
cent months, your writer
has attempted to "study"
the historic church records.
By doing so, I feel that I
have discovered answers
to some previously unan-
swered questions. Sad to say,
there are no members around
today to answer my present
The following is the
first recorded minute of the
church's business transac-
tion and covers the constitu-
tion itself.
"Washington County

tion of a church of Elders

of the members desiring to

ters from seven.

was adopted. and named the
church Bethel."
I had not observed in
previous reading that the
old minutes state that each
founding member of Bethel
Primitive Baptist Church
came by "letter." I recall ask-
ing my father, Hugh Wells,

just where these seven indi-
viduals came from and how
they were received into the
My dad also grew up in
Bethel Church. He became
a baptized member in his
adult years.
Daddy obviously did not
know the answer to my
question and always sur-
mised that all seven of the
original members may have
been baptized on the day of
Now we know, from the
old records, all founding
members were received by
letter. No mention is made
of what church body issued
the letters. That question
remains a mystery.
My father-did tell me of
a Primitive Baptist Church
that once existed south of
Bonifay, near the present-
day Blitches'Restaurant. He
expressed the possibility that
Bethel's constituting mem-
bers came from there.
Little did I know that the
records of that old church
were also nestled safely in
the "archives" of Bethel
Primitive Baptist Church,
along with High Hill Primi-
tive Baptist Church minutes
and Bethel's volumes of old
Research now reveals
the church in Bonifay was
constituted Nov. 14, .1912,
twenty-five years after the
founding of Bethel Primi-
tive Baptist Church. It was
known as Harmony Primi-
tive Baptist Church, and
the original minutes plainly
state the church is locat-
ed in Washington County
Obviously, that body of
believers had nothing to do
with the beginning of Bethel
Primitive Baptist Church.
Minutes recorded af-
ter 1915, show Harmony
Church as being in Holmes
County Florida, however,
it is interesting to note that
there is no mention made
in church records of the
change in boundaries of the
two counties which occurred

that year. The day follow-
ing Bethel Primitive Baptist
Church's constitution, the
body met again and recorded
these developments in their

The newly formed Bethel
Primitive Baptist Church
seems to be "off and run-
ning" as reflected in the next
recorded minute as follows:

After divine service by
J.F. King and Elder Thomas

ference and under head of

it the Church at Ebenezar

Brother King Ordination."
Church records show a
steady increase in member-
ship at the newly constituted
Bethel Church.
On September 8, 1887,
Caty Yates was received by
experience. Candes Levins
and Martha L. Yates joined
Bethel Church by experi-
ence on November 5, 1887
and the three candidates
were baptized by Elder S.T.
Elizabeth Parker was re-
ceived by letter on June 1,
1888 and Sarilda M. Brock
joined by experience and
was baptized by Elder J.F.
King on June 3, 1888.
On Feb. 23, 1890, Martha
E. Wells was baptized by
Elder S.T. Darby, who also
baptized W.J. Stott on Sept.
28, 1890, and Amy Wells on

Oct. 25, 1890. I am assum-
ing Martha E. Wells may be
my great-aunt, Betty Wells
Peters, and Amy Wells may
have been my great-aunt,
Emma Wells Bryant.
Bethel Primitive Church
has continued to grow and
prosper throughout its one
hundred and twenty year his-
tory. Pastors of the past have
included Elder R.A. Luke,
Elder S.T. Sheffield, Elder
J.W. Bush, Elder Daniel
Parker, Elder R.D. Dodgen
and Elder Carlton W. Todd.
Elder R.D. Dodgen lived
in Lockhart, Ala., all the
years he served as pastor of
In 1941, Elder Carlton W.
Todd, a young and recently
ordained man from Arling-
ton, Ga., was appointed
pastor and moved his family
into the community. He con-
tinued as pastor for 57 years
until his death in 1998.
Elder Jesse Stanaland was
Bethel's next pastor., he died
in 2005 and Elder Bobby
Willis is currently serving
the church.
A common expression
among Primitive Bap-
tist folks states "Customs
change, but principles never
change." This saying applies
to Bethel Primitive Baptist
The church remains
strong "In the Faith once
delivered unto the Saints"
as scripture states.
Bethel Church now meets
each Sunday with a member-
ship of approximately 80.
The congregation welcomes
and encourages visitation.
The church now meets in
a modern, air conditioned
building with all the conve-
niences as compared to the
wooden structure of the past
with wood-burning heater
for heat, no electricity and
home-made hard pews.
Maybe the "prattler"
will be inclined to write
more, at a later time, on the,
"customs" and "principles"
of The Primitive Baptist

Firm eyeing Mossy Head

for alternative fuels plant

Florida Freedom
An Alabama company is
eyeing Walton County for a
new biodiesel and ethanol
production plant.
Gulf Coast Energy Inc. of
Livingston,Ala., is negotiat-
ing with Walton County to
buy or lease 50 acres at the
county's industrial park in
Mossy Head for the plant.
If all goes well, part of
the $165 million production
plant could go online in as
little as six or seven months
from the date a deal is final-
ized, said Gulf Coast Energy
President and CEO Mark
Wamer."We think alternative
fuels are the future," Warner
Gulf Coast Energy is tout-
ing the plant as the first in the
world that will produce both
biodiesel and ethanol.
"We don't know of any-
body else that's making both
products in the same place
concurrently," Warner said.
If built, the plant will be
the first alternative fuel pro-
duction facility in Northwest
Florida and one of three fa-.
cilities that produce ethanol
in the state.
Central Florida is home to
two ethanol-manufacturing
plants. The state does not
have any biodiesel facilities
in operation.
Biodiesel is a cleaner
burning fuel for diesel en-
gines and is made from car-
bon-based sources such as
wood chips or plant material.
Ethanol is a fuel made from
corn or sugar cane.
Gulf Coast Energy is seek-
ing federal and state energy
grants to build its facility..
Attracting makers of al-
ternative fuels to Florida is
a pet project of state Com-
missioner of Agriculture'and.

Bronson believes the state

has abundant agricultural
resources that will benefit
producers of alternative fu-
els, said Terence McElroy,
Bronson's spokesman.
, "One of his top priori-
ties has been to establish
renewable fuels in Florida,"
McElroy said.
Gulf Coast Energy is a
small company and has only
been in operation for about
a year. It has plans to build
another biodiesel ethanol
production plant in Livings-
ton, Ala.
The plants that Gulf Coast
Energy builds will use new
technology that allows for a
clean fuel-making process
with low environmental im-
pacts, Warner said.
The industrial park in
Mossy Head, located along
U.S. Highway 90 near State
Road 285, is an ideal loca-
tion because of its easy ac-
cess to Interstate 10 and the
CSX railroad line, Warner
The plant, if built, would
employ 155 people and could
spur the growth at the vacant
240-acre industrial park.
"Based on the (tentative)
commitments that they've
(Gulf Coast Energy) made to
us, they will lay the ground-
work for future projects that
will make the industrial park
much more desirable," said
County Commissioner Larry

Summer season

highlights fashion

trend for eyewear

Freedom Newswire
Along the Emerald Coast
the sun shines more times
than not, making it the per-
fect place to sport the trend-
iest and most, technologi-
cally advanced sunglasses
on the market. Spy, Marc
Jacobs, Versace and oth-
ers can now be seen on not
only the young but also the
young at heart.
This year's fashion is
much of.a duplicate of the
summer of 2006 where big
frames and aviators ruled
the roost. According to
Wes Bakane of Peepers and
Timekeepers in Seaside,
the sportier brands such
as Oakley, Costa Del Mar,
Smith and Kate Spade have
all been top sellers this sum-
mer on the beach.
"Mosely Tribes have also
started to catch on," said
Bakane. "The styles are def-
initely straight from Holly-
wood and very cool."
If you're looking for
something a little different
this season to sport in the
sun or show off with in front
of the surfer guys and gals,
the brand new Arnette Baha
'might be what you are look-
ing for. With a sleek metal
grilamid lining and large
wrapping frame, the Baha
looks to continue the trend
of fashionably big glasses.
Gucci has a new line for
the spring/summer season
that illustrates the 70s over-
sized design and adds extra
detail to the aviator style by
adding crystal lining. With
this Gucci model, you are
paying $700 for not only
a unique and distinct look,
but a name that covers the
runways across the world.
For the angler at heart,
Maui Jim and Costa Del

Mar never seem to disap-
point. Whether you're sight-
casting redfish on the flats
or just in need of something
sporty to hang around your
neck with a Guy Harvey T-
shirt at the local beach bar,
you can't go wrong with a
pair of fishing frames. The
Costa Triple Tails and the
Maui Beach Combers are
two of the more popular and
fashionably sound series of
Although looking fash-
ionable on the beach is cer-
tainly important, finding
a pair of glasses that offer
long-lasting quality and
comfort cannot be over-
"Fit is the most impor-
tant design with our glass-
es," said Costa Del Mar
President Chas Macdonald.
"We have a great reputation
that is patented on fit and
Although Costa Del Mar
has earned its reputation as
being a premier brand on
the -water, Macdonald ex-
plained that the company
now caters to a broad range
of consumers.
"Every one of the styles
is designed for a specific
activity and person," said
Macdonald. "We have
glasses for hardcore activity
and the street fashion."
With any sunglasses you
are looking to purchase,
make sure they fit the shape
of your face and you are
happy with the way they
feel on your nose and ears.
Your sunglasses are a part
of your lifestyle that you
will more than likely wear
every single day, making it
a good idea to see a retailer
that specializes in eyewear
before ordering online or
through a catalog.

In Jesus' name

We find ourselves in a
very precarious position in
our nation. This is a time
when our enemy, Satan,
would destroy our nation
and especially our faith.
We must not let him do this
accursed thing - In Jesus'
We as Christians must
stand strong against the en-
emy. He is doing everything
he can to destroy us and the
works of God. United we
stand, but divided we will
I hope you readers will
stand with Jay Sekulow
in this work he is doing
through his law practice,
the ACLU, the American
Center For Law and Jus-
tice, In Washington D.C.
He backs all of the things
we Christians stand for, and
I truly hope and pray that
you will stand with him in
the fight for the restoration
of all things that affect our
different freedoms, that this
nation has stood for since it
became a nation.
Jay is asking American
Christians to contact our
president and urge him to
do whatever is necessary to



Helen Hodge

restore the right of our mili-
tary chaplains the right to
pray in Jesus Name, in the
way they were trained to
do. That is of utmost impor-
tance that we return-to God
wholly, as a nation. God's
Word instructs us that any-
thing we pray for, we are
to ask it in Jesus Name! I
stand for this with all my

heart too! All of our Chris-
tian heritage proves this,
too! I don't care what some
of these "Johnny come late-
lies," say, or do, these are
our Christian rights, and I
know there are those who
don't think we should have
any rights, but we do, as a
matter of fact.
Also, we must protect
our Godly freedoms too,
such as: keeping 'under
God', in our Pledge of Al-
legiance and keeping our
nation's motto, "In God We
Trust," in all places where it
should be, and on all of our
money too.
Let's do everything in our
power to see that our God
given rights are respected
and practiced. By the way,
there is now a 'freedom
from religion foundation,
as well as the ACLU, which
are both against our reli-
gious and moral freedoms.
May God deliver us from
them both - In Jesus' name.
I guess you can call this
my vote for our Godly and
moral rights; according to
our original Constitutional,
Declaration of Indepen-
dence and our Bill of Rights.

These rights are sacred to us
and to ours. God help us, in
Jesus' name
Now we are being told
that there are those that are
working to have our minis-
ters of the gospel arrested in
they preach against sin. Can
you believe that? Well, it is
a current threat. That is ex-
actly what God's Word in-
structs us to do-to preach
against sin! Not only that,
but there are those who are
trying to have a warning la-
bel placed on otir Holy Bi-
bles, also, they are putting
out bumper stickers that
proclaim that, God does not
answer prayer. I saw that on
T.V. Can you see how far
this attack on God's Word,
and His followers have
gone? We must do all we
can to stop this.
We must contact our
President, the Supreme
Court, our Congressmen
and anyone else you can
think of to put an end to this
obnoxious thing the devil
has determined to do to us.
We must be more deter-
mined than he is - In Jesus'

The Great Price
of Freedom
Two hundred and thirty-
one years have passed since
1776, when so many paid
such a great price for a vi-
sion, a dream of a nation
that would come together
as One Nation Under God,
with Liberty and Justice for
All. Other than Christmas,
on the Fourth of July we
celebrate one of the greatest
birthday parties in our na-
tion, Independence Day, the
day America; the land of the
Free and the Home of the
Brave was born.
Other than shooting off
fire works and burning meat
on a grill, do we really un-
derstand what this day is all
about? Have you ever won-
dered what became of the 56
men who signed the Decla-
ration of Independence and
who they really were?
Did you know? Five
were captured by the British
as traitors, and tortured be-
fore they died. Twelve had
their homes ransacked and
burned. Two lost their sons
serving in the Revolution-
ary Army, and another had
two sons captured. Nine of
the fifty-six fought and died
from wounds or hardships
of the Revolutionary War.,
Did you know that these
men, who signed the Decla-
ration of Independence and
pledged their lives, their
fortunes, and their sacred
honor, were people just
like you and me? Twenty-
four of them were lawyers
and jurists. Eleven were
merchants and nine were
farmers and large plantation
Yes, they were men of
means, well educated, but
yet they signed the Declara-
tion of Independence know-
ing full well that the penalty
would be death if they were
captured. You see, they
didn't just fight the British;
they were British subjects at
the time and fought against
their own government. Then
the penalty for treason was
So what we have today
is the results of men stand-
ing for and believing in
a dream, a dream that we
enjoy for which they paid
dearly. Carter Braxton of
Virginia was a wealthy.
planter and trader at the
time, but later saw his ships
swept from the seas by the
British Navy, forcing him to
sell his home and properties
to pay his debts, thus leav-
ing him to die in rags.
Thomas McKean be-
came so hounded by the
British that he was forced
to move his family almost
constantly. McKean served
the Congress without pay,
while his family was kept
in hiding. For his hard labor
his possessions were taken
from him and poverty was
his reward.
Vandals and soldiers
looted the properties of
Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Wal-
ton, Gwinnett, Heyward,
Ruttledge, and Middleton.
At the battle of Yorktown,
Thomas Nelson Jr., real-
ized that British General
Cornwallis had captured his
home and turned it into their
headquarters. Nelson qui-
etly urged General George
Washington to open fire
on it, which destroyed the
home and caused Nelson to
die bankrupt.
Francis Lewis' home and
properties were destroyed
while his wife was jailed,
where she died. John Hart
was driven from his dying
wife's bedside, while their
13 children fled for their
lives. His fields and grist-
mill were laid to waste. For

in the forest and caves, re-
turning to find his wife dead
and his children vanished.
A few weeks later Hart died
from exhaustion and a bro-
ken heart. Morris also suf-
fered similar fates.
What we seem to forget
is that these men who sac-
rificed for the America we
have today, were not wild-
eyed, rabble-rousing ruf-
fians, but soft-spoken men
of means and education.
They had security, but they
valued liberty more. They
stood tall and straight as
they unwavering pledged
their support, lives, fortune
,and sacred honor to each
other and to this country,
firmly believing it to be a
Divine providence.
Yes, in the past 231
years, America has come
a long way, but it has also
gone a long way away from
the dream. "The Land of
the Free and the Home of
the Brave" is now known as
"The Land of Greed and the
Home of the Crave", where
the population does whatev-
er it takes to be accepted and
popular. The country that
was built on "In God We
Trust" has become a nation
more concerned about the
economy and their personal
desires and wants being met,
than laying a solid moral
foundation for children that
will one day lead this na-
tion. We now have for the
most part a very bias media.
A media that portrays those
who throw away babies and
throw God out of schools
and public buildings as he-
roes and those who take a
stand as our forefathers did,
as idiots and fools. What is
so sad is that most Ameri-
cans today either buy into
these ideas or else they are
content to be conformist so
that their lives will be com-
As for me, I'm glad 56
men in 1776 had a dream
and the backbone to risk all
they had that others might
know freedom. I really
wonder, are there 56 men
of their caliber in America
today? I praise the Lord for
the leaders He has given us
in the past few years, but
they need our prayers that
God will give them contin-
ued wisdom and may God
continue to raise up men of
God through out this coun-
try on the national and local
levels to lead this great na-
tion back to its solid roots.

he SatO o4 he arilh
After our Lord Jesus delivered His Sermon on the Mount
to His disciples. He then told them that they were the "salt of
the earth and the light of the world." With these encouraging
words, Jesus was letting His disciples know that their
behavior and actions should be examples for others to follow.
A person who is considered the "salt of the earth and the
light of the world," is someone who is honest, trustworthy,
S- virtuous, and a reflection of God's love
and righteousness. Unfortunately, we
don't seem to hear these words used
, " often enough these days; however,
our Lord still wants His followers to
be decent, shining examples of love
and righteousness. The Sermon on the
Mount tells us that Blessed are those
who are humble and whose greatest
desire is to do God's will, and to be
merciful and pure in heart. Even today,
the Bible is telling us that those who
follow our Lord are like salt for all mankind, and light for the
whole world.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven...
