Clark looks at ener

Managing Editor
CHIPLEY Rising energy costs are a con-
cern for all Americans, and those costs were
the subject of a talk last week at Bonifay Kiwa-
nis Club. Gary Clark, vice president of member
services at West Florida Electric Cooperative
in Graceville was on hand to discuss energy
and economic development.
Clark noted that as of Tuesday, April 22, oil
was going for $118 a barrel with no end in sight
for price increases. OPEC's president on
Monday warned oil prices could hit $200 a barrel.
The comments made to the Financial Times by
Chakib Khelil, Algeria's energy minister, came as
oil prices hit a historic peak close to $120 a barrel.
"Everyone cares about energy prices," Clark
said. "It is an absolutely critical situation." The
problem, he said, is exacerbated by the outcry
over environmental issues, failure to build new
generating facilities, and other issues.
One of those other issues is the so-called
carbon tax, meaning a tax on carbon output
from generating fossil fuels. The carbon tax is
one of several "green' initiatives proposed by

Gov. Charlie Crist. Clark said nobody has any
idea of the effect of the tax, but utilities would
have to raise rates to pay that tax.
"Guess who gets to pay that the
consumer," Clark said.
The amount of kilowatt-hours used by the
average household has also doubled over the
last 10 years and Florida's energy needs are
growing 15-20 percent a year.
Increasing regulations and increasing fuel
prices are expected to double local energy
prices over the next five years, including from
WFECA. "We are doing our absolute, dead-
level best to control prices," Clark said.
Another problem is the failure of the state to
permit new construction of power plants. Two
major projects were recently "shot down" by
the governor, Clark said, which could lead to a
similar situation as in California, where no new
construction for about 15 years was a major
contributing factor to that state's energy crisis
four years ago.
There are developments throughout the
region that could help ease the energy crisis.
Clark noted that there are two major ethanol

Chipley police car wrecked

Managing Editor
A Chipley Police car was wrecked
Friday night while an officer was
responding to a possible car theft.
Chipley Police Chief Kevin
Crews said Thesday morning that
three units responded to a domestic
disturbance just before 10 p.m.

Crews said the reported victim said
the perpetrator stole her car. One
officer headed north up State 77
and Sgt. Paul Demaree headed east
on Jackson Avenue (State 90).
Crews said Demaree reported that
he thought he saw the stolen vehicle
turn east on 90 off Pecan Street.
Demaree said he hit his blue lights
and took off after the vehicle when a
vehicle driven by Shelly Stoyak

entered 90 off Brown Street. The two
cars collided and the police car
careened into the Department of
Transportation parking lot, striking
three parked vehicles.
Both victims were taken to
Northwest Florida Community
Hospital for treatment of minor
injuries. Crews said Stoyak is
charged with a failure to yield right
of way, a minor traffic charge.

Department continues to
wage war on pharmaceutical
abuse and trafficking and
reports two more arrests
over the weekend, according
to a news release from CPD.
Arrested were Tony Caso on,
six counts of possession of con-
trolled -substance and one
count of obtaining a controlled
substance by fraud, and Laura
Grantham for six counts of

and began to question the two

said. "Both suspects admitted to
falsifying prescriptions to obtain
large amounts of controlled
phannaceuticals ranging from
morphine to Hydrocodone."
Crews said that the abuse
of pharmaceuticals is nation-
wide and the Chipley area is
no exception. "This problem
has affected all of the citi-
zens young and old," Crews
said. "These two suspects
had trafficked amounts of
controlled substances."

Chris Welch announces

his candidacy for

Washington County Sheriff

Chris Welch officially announces his candidacy for
Washington County Sheriff. Born to long-time educators
Mike and Gwen Welch, Chris has been a lifelong resi-
dent of Washington County and a 20-year member of
Shiloh Baptist Church.
He is married to the former Wendy Usery, daughter of
Edwin Usery and Sandra Adkison.
He and Wendy have two children, Keegan (5 years)
and Karley (7 months). After graduating from Chipley
High School, Chris attended
Chipola Junior College and
Florida A&M University
before graduating with a
Bachelor of Science degree
3in Criminal Justice from
Troy State University.
He attended the Pat
X Thomas Law Enforcement
Academy in 1997 and since
that time has completed over
1,500 hours of public safety
related training.
Welch's law enforcement
career began in 1998 when
the Bureau of Fire and
Arson Investigations of the State Fire Marshal's Office
hired him as an investigator. After a short stay in Talla-
hassee, Chris was glad to transfer back home to Wash-
ington County, where he is still employed as an arson
Throughout his career, he has been the lead investiga-
tor on hundreds of cases.
Because arson is often associated with other crimes,
Chris has been involved in various types of criminal
cases ranging from burglary to murder. Overseeing these
cases from start to finish has given him the opportunity
to become very familiar with all aspects of the criminal
justice system.
Being responsible for a multi-county coverage area
has allowed him to interact with countless public safety
agencies within his assigned area and he takes pride in
the relationships he has formed with each.
Welch is running on the Democratic ticket.

The Chipley Ministerial Association will sponsor an
observance of National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 1

projects within 50 miles of Bonifay,
with one possibly amounting to a
$200 million investment. "We could
see 1,200-1,500 new jobs within 60
miles," Clark said.
The energy crisis is one of many
issues affecting economic develop-
ment, which Clark called "at its flat-
test point in many years." Many
believe the country is in a recession,
defined as two consecutive quarters
where the gross domestic product
falls, and the Florida economy is
suffering from the downturn in the
housing market.
Clark noted that this area is more
recession proof than others in
Florida. For example, Washington
and Holmes counties are not partic-
ularly dependent on tourism as the
coastal counties. Since both coun-
ties qualify as rural counties of crit-
ical economic concern, they can
offer a wider range of regional
incentives to recruit business and
"That way we're not caught up in
the economic downturn," Clark
Growth of the area service indus-
try and employment by government
.is also helping temper fears of
recessions. One example is 400 new
corrections jobs at the new
Graceville prison, with further
expansion underway.
Clark noted that large industries
like Green Circle in Cottondale are
also coming to the area. Clark also
noted the recent report by Florida's
Great Northwest looking at the
four major industries to be targeted
for recruiting to the region con-
struction services, logistics and dis-
tribution, aerospace and medical
technology. Not all would directly
affect Washington or Holmes coun-
ties, as noted in last week's paper.
The state legislature is grappling
with finding about $6 billion in sav-
ings, with revenue declining from
$72 billion in the last fiscal year to
an expected $65 billion in 2008-09.
"We have seen the fighting begin,"
Clark said, and the budget cuts will
greatly impact the budgets of small
The House is looking at major
cuts that Clark estimates would
cost small counties about 10
percent of their state revenue this
year and 20-30 percent next year.
Education would lose about a
$1.20 per student.
The Senate is looking at dipping
into state reserves and possibly
increasing various taxes. There is
also a move to reduce salaries of
state officials by 10 percent and to
even cut all salaries of elected offi-
cials except for judges and sheriffs.

Breaking the


From the time we wake up
in the morning we're playing
a role. My good friend Willy
Shakespeare wrote about it
in his play As You Like It. He
wrote, "All the world's a
stage,; and the men and
women merely players; they
have their exits and their
entrances; and one man in
his time plays many parts."
He hit the nail on the head.
Some days I feel it more.
From the time I wake up to
the time I lay me
down to rest, I'm
"on" for people.
Sometimes I
play the role of
son or husband,
and I can be
myself. Other
times I have to
play the student,
or the writer, or
the bus driver, or
the friend, or the n
acquaintance, or One
the stranger. Andre\
Each role

requires differ-
ent costumes and attitudes.
The people who climb on my
bus don't want to hear about
the day I've had, good or bad.
They just want to know that
I'll take them from point A to
point B. My wife doesn't
want a handshake when we
see each other, she wants a
hug. But a hug would be too
much for a stranger.
All this can get confusing
and stressful. There are times
that we must be responsible,
and times that we're allowed
to be silly. Heaven forbid we
mix the two up by mistake.
Hold on. Strike that. Not
heaven forbid, society forbid.
It's another of those inane
world rules. I say forget it. It's
time to break the rules again.
There's only one Andrew.
Frankly, I think there's
enough to go around.
LeAnn Womack sings a
song, "I Hope You Dance."


Part 2

Several years ago, my mom
was speaking at a teachers'
convention. At the end of the
conference she played that
song as a bit of motivation for
the beginning school year.
She had my brother and sis-
ter stand on the side of the
stage and sign the words of
the song.
As LeAnn sang out,
"When you get the choice to
sit it out or dance...I hope
you dance," I walked onto the
stage, took my
mom's hand
and began to
dance with

those people.
But it was
worth it. I got
W ord to be me, out
there with my
Hollinger mom.
It is okay
to be our-
selves. All the time. It's
more than okay, even. "To
thy own self be true."
It is not permissible,
however, to be jerk or a
royal pain in the patootie
and brush it off as "I'm just
being me. And Andrew
said I could be me." No
that's not okay. That's bad.
Stop playing to the
crowd. You only need to
play one role. You. It's your
right. It's your duty.
This applies to everyone
from 1 to 92.

sion to go out and break
the rules. All you have to

Crystal was a really close
friend to me and a lot of other
people. I'm sure of Crystal
was the nicest sweetest and
the person I could count on.
She was always there when
you needed her she always
made everything right. Now its
not going to be the same
without her. I'm gonna miss
you Kneller and so is
everyone else but this isn't
S* goodbye cuz I'm gonna see
S. you again. I promise you that I
, love you and miss you like
crazy girl. I just wish you were
here and I know deep down
everyone else does too. You
would have been the best
mother in the world I know
that for a fact I just hate that
she's really gone I love you
Knell I'll see you later
Addy Renae

I knew Crystal by only going
to school together but she
was a nice person to talk to
even though I didn't speak to
her as well as her other
friends did and I was not one
of her close friends just a
school friend and I am very
sorry for her loss and I will
remember her family and her
in my prayers and let us all
that knew her remember the
good things about her.
.Kandace Stevens

Crystal was my friend we
knew each other for a long
time. She was some one I
could go to when I needed
help or something like that.
She helped me out with a lot
of things I know she will be
missed very much so not only
by me but her brother and
friends. She always had a
smile on her face and never
really showed being upset.
She would have been a
wonderful mother if everything'
worked out right. But like I told
everyone. This is not good-
bye but I will see you later.
And that is true. I will see you
later girl.

Looking at history of Washington County

I hope nmy observation of seeing a
ernewed interest in the heritage and
history of our area is not just a fig-
ment of the imagination. Working
on The Heritage of Washington
County book project may have given
me a false impression of a resur-
gence of a true interest in how our
county came into being. This con-
cern for history seems to exist among
the young and not so young.
Inquiring minds seem to be
dwelling on what our ancestors did
in order to make a living and, gen-
erally how they lived, worked,
formed gov-
erning bod-
ies, built
and fonnmed
ties. Some
of the
i S names of
those early
rattle towns, vil-
Perry Wells lages and
hoods are
still mentioned in written histories
of the area in recent years.
For the past two years, my interest
has been rekindled in the Historical
Society of Washington County. The
present organization was chartered
in the mid-1980s. It was a formal
revamping of a movement estab-
lished many years earlier which had
fallen by the wayside.
The new formation of the Histor-
ical Society has, among other
accomplishments, established a His-
torical Museum in the historic build-
ing situated under the water tank in
downtown Chipley. This interesting
array of artifacts, historical writings,
pictures, telephone equipment of
the past, school records, and many
other items await the visitor at the
The museum is open each first
Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon,
with Historical Society members
serving as guides in assisting visi-
tors. A covered dish lunch and
business session is held at noon.
Speakers, or other programs, are
features of the meeting except for

These are two of the "unknown" pictures available for viewing at The Washington County Historical
Museum. Stop by and identify them. Hopefully they can be returned to family members.

June, July and August.
On 'Thursdays and Fridays, the
Chipley museum is open from 10
a.m. until 2 p.m. with volunteers on
duty. Charles and Carol Morris,
Annette Sasser, Jerry and Genell
Whitson, Byron and wife, Nelda
Clenny Hurst have joined some of
the "old faithfuls" like Chuck Yates,
Whit Gainey, Bonnie Sloan, Dan
Braxton, Linda Norton, Marjorie
Sangaree and Perry Wells in volun-
teering time at the facility.
Because of my repeated writings
regarding the museum, it has been
my delight in having individuals and
organizations contact me regarding
items they have to donate to the
popular collection of valuable and
interesting materials.
Immediately preceding the old
hospital reunion held on March 15,
the "prattler" was contacted by the
management of the new hospital,
offering a complete collection of
quality pictures, with frames, of past
trustees of the hospital. They date
back from the hospital's inception

1957 through the mid-1980s. Each
picture has an engraved plate with
the person's name and the dates
served as trustee. Look for this
mammoth prized gift to the museum
to be prominently displayed for visi-
tors to view.
My suggestion is for leaders of the
museum to have a gigantic unveiling
ceremony of all the portraits, honor-
ing the approximately 46 men and
women who served on the hospital
board during the years named.
Nellie Mitchell, wife of Sam
Mitchell, brought pictures, plaques
and awards honoring her late hus-
band's long tenure as a Florida state
representative for this area. They,
too, will be appropriately placed for
visitor to view.
On April 15, Hester and I "acci-
dently" came upon the Don and
Rena Harrell clearance sale. The
sale was held in old Tillman Adams
warehouse adjacent to the railroad.
We stopped by to look at the mer-
chandise and Don immediately
donated a supporting cast iron beam

of the old F B. Calloway building in
downtown Chipley for the local
museum. EB. Calloway was one of
Chipley earliest automobile dealers.
The Tillman Adams building is a
museum within itself. It was used in
earlier years as a livery stable where
mules and horses were also sold.
Maybe further history can be
explored on this historic site.
Upon observing a collection of
old pictures and picture frames in
various sizes and condition, I asked
Don for a price, thinking of using
some of them in the museum. He
quoted a favorable price and a sale
was made.
Some of the cache involves beau-
tiful pictures of the past of recogniz-
able people. Three of these have
been returned to family members,
who were delighted to have them.
Two of those were given to Jim and
Emma Lee Trawick. They are pic-
tures of the son, Jeff, and daughter,
Jenee, both at early ages.
The remaining actual photographs
are on display at the Historical

Dockery signs with University of Mobile

Managing Editor

After averaging 25 points a
game and seven assists his
senior year, it was expected
that Holmes County's Brock
Dockery would head on
to play college ball. That
expectation came true
Wednesday as Dockery
signed a full scholarship with
NAIA member University
of Mobile, Ala.
Joined by parents Chuck
and Penny Dockery, Coach
Poterius White, and Principal
Janis Johnson, Dockery, the
state three-point shooting
champion and a participant
in the Freedom Classic
basketball game, signed to
play for Coach Joe Niland

and Assistant Coach
Shaddrick Jenkins.
"Thank you all for com-
ing," Dockery told the full
house at the HCHS Media
Center. "Keep supporting
me in your prayers."
Niland first saw Dockery in
AAU. competition and kept
his eye on him throughout his
high school career. He was
clearly pleased to get a player
of Dockery's quality and
called Dockery's package of
overall skills "unusual" for a
modern player.
"He can handle the ball
and pass with either hand,"
Niland said. "Most players
these days totally rely on ath-
letics as they move up rather
than the skills they need to
get better. That's what made
Brock stand out."

FWC needs help with feral hogs
Feral hogs have a reputation for destroying wildlife habitat with
their foraging habits and high reproductive rates. Nowhere is that
more clear than on the Blackwater Wildlife Management Area,
Hutton Unit, near Milton.
Due to extensive damage and a growing number of hogs on
the 5,243-acre area, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is offering five three-day hog hunts this
spring and summer, The hunts are the product of an agreement
between the FWC and the Florida Division of Forestry-the lead
managing agency for Blackwater River State Forest.
Hunt dates are May 23-25, June 20-22, July 18-20, Aug. 22-
24 and Sept, 19-21. A total of five quota permits are available for
each three-day hunt. Up to two people may hunt per quota per-
mit. And, the best thing yet for some hunters is that hog-dogs will
be allowed during the hunts. Hunters will be limited to a total of
three dogs, however.
Hog hunting has been legal on the Hutton Unit since the late
1990s, according to FWC wildlife biologist Fred Robinette. Robi-
nette said hogs come out mostly at night, destroying wildlife food
plots of chufas, corn and wheat. Recent surveys show that
ground-nesting birds, such as quail, have declined in numbers
on the area, likely from hogs destroying their nests and ground
Anyone interested in applying for the hunts can do so begin-
ning April 22 at 10 a.m. EDT through the Total Licensing System
at county tax collectors' offices or online on a first-come, first-
served basis at MyFWC.con/license. There will be no size or bag
limit on hogs. No live hogs may be removed from the area.

Turkeys accused of 'fowl play WASHINGTON COUNTY
For many years, some hunters small, food-bearing shrubs, SCHOOL
have wrongfully blamed wild weeds and grasses that provide A Christian Alternative
tvrks o-rdt, asatina tn ultnon nlentv of ground cnver for the in Education

ulations by eating quail eggs and
chicks. This idea may sound
ridiculous, but, once again, the
accusations against turkeys are
flying, according to a news
release from the National Wild
Turkey Federation.
Quail populations in some
regions have declined over the
last two decades while wild
turkey populations have dramat-
ically increased at the same time,
but there is no scientific data that
points to turkeys as the culprits.
According to Jim Dietsch, presi-
dent of Quail Forever's Central
Oklahoma 89er Chapter, a lack
of quality quail habitat not
turkey predation is to blame.
"Habitat is one link between
the rise of turkey populations
and the fall of quail populations
in Oklahoma and across the
nation," Dietsch said. "Predation
will always occur in nature, but
we can help quail by improving
their habitat. Quality quail habi-
tat and proper nesting cover
allows for more successful nest-
ing with less interference from
predators and bad weather."
Quail thrive in early growth
habitat, which is dominated by

small birds to avoid predators.
Wild turkeys, in contrast, are
more opportunistic and use all
habitat types from early succes-
sional woodlands and prairies
to older, more mature forests.
In the early to mid-20th yen-
tury, when small family farms
were popular, quail populations
thrived. Wild plums, sumac and
other shrubs grew around field
borders, providing food and
protection from. predators.
Wildfires also generated new
forest growth that quail require.
To meet modem agricultural
demands, farms have grown.
Today's farmers plant larger crops
and mow field borders. Addition-
ally, wildfires, which once cleared
brush and restored plant commu-
nities to the early habitats quail
prefer, have decreased and have
not been replaced by prescribed
bums in many areas.
Without prescribed burns,
young, brushy habitats perfect for
quail to grow into forests more
suitable for wild turkeys. Each of
these factors has contributed to
the decline in the quail popula-
tion, but has created ideal condi-
tions for wild turkeys.

General Facts About Tobacco
eTobacco use kills more than 400,000 Americans each year-more
than alcohol, AIDS, car crashes, illegal drugs, murders and suicides
* 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
*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.

Artwork by developmentally chal-
lenged adults from ARC in Chipley was a
surprise for many at the festival.
Although some of the men and women
probably can't discuss the meaning of art,
they certainly know how to put things on
canvas in a colorful way.
Art also can be shared without a sound.
Mimes from Vernon High School roamed
the grounds Saturday, dancing with
whomever they could. A female mime
climbed onto the stage with steel drum
musician Radar McLean and danced near
him while he performed.
Other performers were from the VHS
drama class, who presented a skit from
their upcoming spring performance.
Linda Norton and other Friends of the
Library invited people to learn music mak-
ing with hand bells. Chipley High School
Jazz Band performed in the north pavilion'
during the lunch hour. The Florida Fire
Ants 4-H Club sold cold drinks to raise
money so members can attend 4-H camp.
Songstress Margo Anderson
performed popular songs in the bandstand
at 1 p.m. Chipley High School took over
the pavilion with an excerpt from "Music
Man" at 2 p.m., and the talented Erow
Brothers (John and Peter) performed

from the bandstand at 3 p.m.
While all the musical and vocal talent
performed, youngsters were making sand
art jewelry and pictures at tables manned
by Barbara Finch of Chipley Kiwanis Club,
and members of the VHS Key Club,
including Tierra Belser, secretary-in-train-
ing, and Leanna Easterling, treasurer.
Terencia Johnson also helped out.
Other people worked on a mural-size
paint-by-number picture under the direc-
tion of librarian Susan Cook. No one knew
what the fate of the finished picture would
be although a bystander suggested it be
auctioned off as several people might want
it since they had a hand in painting it.
Wayne and Carolyn Saunders had a
booth where they sold copies of Heart to
Heart, a cookbook dedicated to research
for children with congenital heart defects.
More than 750 recipes from friends and
relatives of Holly Turner, the Saunders'
granddaughter, are printed, along with
some good cooking tips. For instance, did
you know "over-ripe bananas can be
peeled and frozen in a plastic container
until it's time to bake bread or cake?"
You can also find the secret to a good
peanut butter and jelly sandwich provided
by Dr. Steven H. Stokes of Dothan, Ala.
(page 297). It's fun to look through the
recipe book and find names of friends
from Washington County who contributed
some of their favorites to Tracy and Can-
dace Turner of Prattville, Ala., the parents
of young Holly Turner.
Several artists, including Martha Nebel
of Chipley and Nancy Zurenda of Mari-
anna, shared a covered pavilion. Todd Wil-
son, an accomplished Lakota singer, had a
table with Phoenix Illusions of Chipley. He

was doing beaded work on a very small
wire loom. In addition to beading, Todd
does face and body part castings and gives
talks on Native American traditions.
Carvings and speciality paintings were
offered by Marvin Tweedy of DeFuniak
Springs, Bill and Mary Varner of Camp-
bellton, and other booths along the fence.
Bob Marsh of Westminster Stained Glass
Co. of Marianna also had a booth.
There was plenty of parking Saturday
since First Baptist Church had opened part
of its paved lot to parking.
Susan Roberts used a bell from the bell-
ringing booth to announce the reading of
poetry at a red tent near the entrance to
the park. Bubbles blown by Zedra
Hawkins floated on the breeze.
Jim Ackerman is chairman of the Wash-
ington County Arts Council that spon-
sored the festival. He said the council rec-
ognizes the need to promote the develop-
ment of the arts in Washington County,
and hopes to provide a variety of activities
for the young and young at heart.
One of the upcoming events is a logo
contest offering a $100 prize for the indi-
vidual who best portrays the vision of
Washington County Arts Council. Dead-
line is June 13. For more details, visit the
website www.washingtoncountyarts. org or
contact Tonya Pippin at 638-8851.
In addition to Ackerman, board mem-
bers are Kathy Foster, vice chair; Karen
Roland, secretary; and Linda Norton,
treasurer. Committee leaders are Fred and
Jeanne Lavender, performing arts; Karen

ship/volunteers, and Tonya Pippin, promo-
tions/special events. Top committee spots

All 'Bees'-ness

VES class learns about importance of bees

At Vernon Elementary, Mrs.
McKinney's students visited with
some sweet friends, honeybees.
These bees traveled by way of
an observation hive brought by
Sharon Jones, a honeybee farm
operator and expert in Vernon.
Sharon Jones is the
grandmother of VES student,
Evan, who .is also somewhat of an

expert in the bee business.
Mrs. McKinney's class learned
about the importance of each bee
and its specific duty in the honey
making process.
They found it interesting to learn
about the entire process and how this
sweet substance is made. The Jones'
operation is a part of Sleeping Bear
Farms out of Beulah, Mich.

What is worm fiddlin'?
Worm fiddlin' is probably
one of the oldest ways used to
coax a worm out of- the
It is particularly well
known in the Wiregrass
region of lower Alabama and
in the northern Florida Pan-
Alabama Folkways writer
Steve Grauberger went to the

sources for his 1995 article on
worm fiddlin', Jack Palmer
and Pat Williams. Palmer was
involved in the Caryville
Worm Fiddlin' Festival for
years and Williams, the self-
proclaimed greatest fisher-
man in Alabama (or at least
in the small community of
Thurston near Black, Ala.), is
involved with Geneva's Festi-
val on the Rivers' worm fid-
dlin' competition.
Grauberger said when he
interviewed both men (they
are both originally from
around Geneva, Ala.) they
described worm fiddlin' as fol-
lows (Note: only earthworms
react to worm fiddlin'):
When questioned in separate
interviews, both men told me that
the name they always knew for
their particular method of fid-
dling was "worm snoring." To
"snore up" a worm, a person
drives a short (approximately 1-2
ft.) stake or "stob" into the
ground and then rubs a "pusher"
such as a brick, old piece of iron,
the head of an ax, a piece of
wood, or almost anything suit-
able across the stake. The snoring
sound made by rubbing the
"pusher" over the stob gives the
term its name.
As a boy, Jack Palmer and his
friends would sell the worms they
"snored up"to olderfishermen in
the Caryville area. "We'd get us a
gallon syrup bucket and we
would grab us a brick and a stob.
We would go out in these woods,
we'd drive it down (the stob) and
snore them earthworms up. We'd
get 'em and count 'em and put
'em in this bucket. "In Troy, Ala.,
the word 'doodling' is the com-
mon term used for the same
method of worm gathering.

The fourth annual Worm Fiddlin' Festival at Caryville is for all ages.

Bruce Williams is Washington-Holmes
Technical Center's Computer Systems
Technology Instructor.
The program provides training for
employment or advanced training in the
computer industry in areas of systems net-
working, systems hardware and software fun-
damentals. Bruce was born and raised in
Jackson County. He graduated from Cotton-
dale High School and entered the U.S.
Navy's program for Nuclear Electronic.
After completing his training, he was injured
in an accident that ended his Navy career.
He began working as Consultative Techni-
cian with C-PEC designing remote control
systems and specialized operating systems
for industry. He returned to Washington
County in 1995 to help care for his mother
and went to work for the State Correctional
Facility in Liberty County as the Computer
Technology Instructor. In 1999, he was hired
as the CST Instructor for Washington-
Holmes Technical Center and said, "It has
been fun and truly enjoyable to further
develop the program and prepare future
computer technicians for the workforce."
Bruce is married and has one "bodacious"
daughter who followed in her father's foot-
steps. She tested out of high school in tenth
grade and immediately went to work as a
computer consultant for Sallie Mae and sev-
eral other large industries.

But it's so slow
Slow computing is the third most com-
mon problem experienced by computer
users. It is usually caused by a combination
of Spyware, Malware, tracking cookies, etc.
This problem can also be caused by a virus
or Trojan program. Over time these items
(Spyware, Malware, etc.) cannibalize sys-
tem resources. This means that processor
operating time is severely hampered
because the items have tied up RAM mem-
ory for short-time storage and are lodged
into the operating system in such a way as
to dominate its function.
In order to protect your computer, you
need to approach each problem individu-
ally. An anti-virus program alone will not
take care of all problems because each of
the programs function in different ways. In
computing, protection must be layered,
like an onion. First comes the antivirus,
then comes the Trojan/worm remover and
next comes spyware/malware removers.
Free programs that accomplish this for
home use are:
1)Antivirus: AVG freeware by Grissoft Software
2)Trojans/worms: Asquared freeware by Emsisoft
3)Spyware: Spybot freeware by Patrick M. Kolla
AVG Anti-Spyware Free Edition

Back up, back up, back up
It is amazing that our computers do not
come with a visible reminder to help erad-
icate the number one technical support
That problem is users failing to backup
To prevent data loss, regularly back up
your computer, at least your more impor-
tant files.
Solutions include using an external
drive, a USB flash drive, or an Internet
backup service. These different solutions
are designed to fit various user needs.
What many of us don't know is that Win-
dows XP or Vista includes a system backup
from the START BAR:
TOOLS......BACKUP. Voila. No pur-
chase necessary! Here is an included back
program already in your operating system.

Where's my internet
The fourth most common computer
problem involves Internet connectivity. "I
can't connect to my Internet!" is a frequent
statement heard at tech support centers.
One of the more common causes of this
problem is modem instability due to power
fluctuations, especially in rural areas.
Fluctuations in electrical power so slight
as to not be observed by the naked eye can
cause untold grief on your Internet con-
A quick fix is to check all your connec-
tions and then unplug your modem.
Wait 30 seconds and then plug the modem
back in. Wait for it to reinitialize and then
This is known as "rebooting the
modem." It is one of industry's most com-
mon fixes. Why does this work? The power
glitch makes the software in the modem
temporarily loose its mind. It can't follow
the installed software instructions
Both the PC and the DSL or Cable
modem are. susceptible to as little as half a
volt variance in power.
So,, to play it safe, purchase a battery
backup unit and plug these devices into it.
No, I didn't say one of those fancy strips
sold at some retail store with a lot of
plug-in slots!
The strips are virtually ineffective after
the first power surge and the protection is
no longer available.
The battery backup unit supplies
power from it's batteries as line (wall)
power drops and shunts it away if it
exceeds limits. Make sure the wattage
rating for the backup is correct; use it
and happy computing.

irst United Methodist 'I Am a Promise'

Three myths

to why we sin

The children of First United
Methodist Church presented the
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.
Many of the children dressed in

character for the career they want
topursue. All of the workers in the
Wednesday evening Bible Clubs
assisted in making the musical
Kathy Cooey and Melissa Spicer
directed the children while Minister
of Music, Moises Vallejos worked
on the technical end of the
UMC children present a musical
"I Am a Promise," during Sunday

morning worship service.

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
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
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

Let rWi

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
If you are a sinner it is
because you choose to be. a
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 name 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

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
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
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 corn-

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
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
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-
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. 0
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
