Wausau Mayor Roger Dale Hagan and City Clerk Margaret Riley accept $2.355 million in funding

WAUSAU - The afternoon rains
dampened things a bit, but the
crowd under the roof at the Pos-
sum Palace still enjoyed the 40th
anniversary Possum Festival and
Fun Day in Wausau.
In fact, it was an even more en-
joyable day for the Town of Wausau
as area director Joe Fritz of the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
Rural Development was on hand
to present the town with a check
for a grant and loan totaling $2.355
million from the American Recov-
ery and Reinvestment Act that
Fritz said was the first recovery
act funding awarded in Florida.
Mayor Roger Dale Hagan said
the funding would be used to re-
pair and expand water service in
Wausau: There would be 63 new
fire hydrants for a town that has
less than a dozen and presumably
a reduction in insurance rates due
to increased firefighting capacity.

The grant is for $664.0001
and the loan for $1.691 mil-
lion. Another well would also be
installed. The need for improve-
ments to the town's elderly sys-
tem is evident due to a 38 percent
loss of water due to antiquated,
leaky pipes. The lines also
experience lower water pres-
sure. There is also danger of
"We could not do this without
'the help of the USDA," Hagan
Activities at the festival started
off Friday night when "Wallbacker
:Canderass" and "Flrgil Flemdip-
per" were crowned Possum Queen
ard King. The annual pageant is
one of the best-known features of
the Possum Festival.
The local Shrine Club No. 39 of-
fered its annual pancake breakfast
and the 5K Possum Trot road race
and fun run got underway at 7:30
p.m. The annual parade highlight-
ed by numerous local fire trucks
began at 10 a.m.
Founder Dalton Carter was on

riB hand to give a history of
the event as well as serve
possum, sweet potatoes
and collard greens to visitors;
Entertainment included sing-
er Johnna Kay Pierce, Dixieland
Grass and Royal City. The pos-
sum auction was held in the after-
noon followed by hog and rooster
calling by children and adults, the
greased pole climb, and the an-
tique car show.

Honor their


Andy Com!er
McAllen Monitor

Henry Allingham's secret for living 113 years
by his own admission, "cigarettes, whisky and v
wild women."
That sounds like a much more fun health pla
than vegetables, milk and mild, mild women.
Allingham, a British World War I veteran, wa
the world's bldest living man until July 19, where
died quietly in his sleep. Fellow World War I vete
Harry Patch, also from England, passed away
Sunday at age 111. Patch was Great Britain's lai
World War I veteran living in England. Canada's
remaining veteran of the Great War turned 109
July 23, and Frank Buckles, America's lone Wor
War I vet, is 108.
Sadly, it won't be long before there's no one
left who fought in one of the world's largest and
most significant conflicts. World War I is import
because, in a nutshell, it made the United State
global superpower and sowed the seeds for Wor
War II. Oddly enough, no national World War I
memorial exists, even though more than 100,00(
Americans died in the "war to end all wars,"
according to www.wwimemorial.org.
As I read the obituaries seen daily in The Mc
there's almost always at least orie World War II
Korean War veteran among the dearly departed
some point in the not-too-distant future, we're g
to run out of those who experienced either or b<
the two wars on a first-hand basis; World War II
the Korean War occurred a mere five years apa
after all.
At the risk of being morbid, every man or wo
who served in World War II is at least age 85 or
and even with advances in modern health care,
our precious remaining veterans, like their Wor
War I counterparts, are gradually being lost to c
age. A May 24,2008, article on www.foxnews.cor
stated that more than 1,000 World War II vets ar
dying every day across the United States, and a
historian with the World War II Museum believe
that all of the war's combatants will be gone by:
-11 years from now.
For an assignment during my junior year of h
school, our American history teachers asked eat
student to interview a veteran. I was able to talk
to and record a few minutes of dialogue with my
then-girlfriend's grandfather about what life was
during World War II. When I was asked to play tl
audio tape of the interview in front of the entire
I was horrified that the old man's words were no
more than a muffle at best; I'm pretty sure I fail
to adjust the volume correctly during the intervi

There were a number of readers'
comments on the curfew issue in
Bonifay. Here are some of them:

I'm all far improving our city and
taking care of our teens. My point
when all the alcohol started was
that it was sad to use alcohol to save
downtown. It is sad when a business
has alcohol to save their business.
Good food and service usually works
well in Bonifay. I do not agree with
the alcohol situation but I am over it
and that's just my opinion. The thing
I like is the curfew. Teens under 16
do not need to be running the roads-
that late.

Even Jesus turned the water into
Wine! I am by far a drunk but I do
enjoy a glass of Wine or Wine Cooler
occasionally with a Meal. Get over
it times are changing. Advertise it if
you have to so what. The next time,
you go to Applebees, Longhorn, or
Red Lobster look at the table and see
what you see. Table advertisements
for drinks as well as deserts usually.
Pretty colorful drinks with fruit, whip
cream, umbrellas, and hard liquor.
By the way you can go in and order
just a drink at those places. I am sure
that the ones whining about this has
drank a few in there time. They are
just in the closet with it. Drink if you
want to drink, eat if you want to eat.
We need to encourage business to
come to our town not-run them off.
We most definitely need to encourage
a business that caters to the teens
to come here to keep our kids close
to home instead of having to drive
to Dothan or Panama City. A movie
theater, or something like Adventure
land would be great and would
attract kids from Westville, Caryville,
Chipley, Ebro, and other Small
communities to come here and spend
some money, which turns into tax
revenue. Think about it. When people
spend money in Bonifay they pay
sells tax and the county and City gets
a small portion of.that tax. It all adds
up the more they spend the better for

our town our county our State.
S shorty
Once again the town of Bonifay
is ajoke. Lets take care of problems
that matter the most 1st. but that will
never happen. This is why I moved.
and promise I would not live in the
city limits again for nothing. It is a
joke. From the council to the PD.
always has been. Hey did the bpd go
to the wreck on IJ0 god I hope not.
that is out of their area. ha ha ain't it

I don't think he/she said anything
about you chiming in. I see what
their saying. The headline is about
the curfew. The alcohol situation was
two weeks ago. They can peaceably
assemble if they would like. They
just can't do so after the above stated
times. "Hassle fine teens"? We have
a lot of fine teens. But we also have
some that do hot do fine things.
Those things sometimes occur after
11 or 12. First of all, I do not see too
many reasons fro them to be out past
11 during the week, especially with
school in session. Remember we
are talking about kids that are just
barely driving age. Most responsible
parents will have their child at the
house. It is not like BPD will have to
fo out of their way to patrol this. As
far the skating, I guess maintaining
concrete will be easier than a
swimming pool.
Good Thing

Reread the article because it is
three fold. It discusses the issue
of the curfew. It also discusses
the issue of the skate park grand
opening in addition to your local
council member not happy about
alcoholic beverage signs in your
downtown area. I posted in regards
to your alcoholic beverage signs,
but if you would like me to post
on teen curfews, I can. The First
Amendment to the US Constitution
protects citizens rights peaceably to
assemble. Basically, your curfew says
that the curfew allows police officers
to hassle and fine teens for doing

just that peacefully assembling! Oh
by the way a curfew on teens will
Snot stop youth crime. You might
reduce it a little with increased police
personnel and policies but you will
not stop it. How about targeting teens
that actually commit crimes and not
enforce a curfew on all! Instead of
imposing curfews, cities and towns
should invest in positive outlets
for teens like skate parks and after
school activities. Maybe bull riding
and barrel racing just isn't doing it for
everyone. Sounds like Bonifay is on
the right track though with the skate
park. Besides it is a parents right to
determine what is best for his or her
child. A curfew should be decided by
parents and NOT by the government!
Bottom Line is that curfews violate
our constitutional rights. Oh yeah, I
also own land in Holmes County so I
can chime in if I would like!

This town used to be alive with
things to do in the evenings after
working in the fields all days, you
could go to.town and socialize and
shop or listen to a band, today there's
no reason to go to town after 5 pm or
noon on Thursday.
im oldwhatdoiknow

In regards to the skate park, I
think it is a wonderful idea, however,
I also wish the city of Bonifay had
made arrangements years ago to
allow a private organization to take
over the management of the rec
center. I have three children between
the ages of 9 and 15 and would have
been glad to pay for a membership to
a youth recreation facility.
,concerned citizen

I agree with the curfew laws, if
minors are out past those hours, they
most likely will be up to no good. The
skate park is also a good idea, I see
kids out in the street skating because
they have no where else to do so, and
also its a good way to meet other kids
their own age.

Letter to the EDITOR

Dear Editor:
As manager of Florida's fish
and wildlife resources, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is diligent
in protecting native species and
habitats. When an exotic species
invades our natural landscape,.it is
our duty to do everything possible to
ensure those invaders do not expand
their range and harm the fragile
balance of Florida's unique and
abundant wildlife.
The Burmese python threatens
that balance in the Everglades. A
non-venomous constrictor, it preys on
native Florida species of mammals,
birds and reptiles. The appetite of
the Burmese python poses a serious
threat to some of Florida's already
endangered species. For example,
Burmese pythons have eaten
Key Largo woodrats, a federally
endangered species.
We must do everything possible
now to stop its spread into other
areas. To that end, we began a
python permit program on July 17
as a way to manage this unwanted
species effectively. Under this
program, the FWC hand-picked
seven herpetologists to receive'
permits to go on specific FWC-
managed lands and search for all
Reptiles of Concern, including the
Burmese python, and euthanize the
snakes. We chose experts who know
how to handle these large reptiles.
Furthermore, we require the python
be killed on site to ensure that none
of these snakes escapes into other

The permit holders may use
hand-held instruments to kill the
pythons but, under the current
program, they may not use firearms
or traps. Again, the professionalism
of these permit holders ensures that
the pythons are disposed of quickly
and efficiently. The scientific data
collected from these pythons will
assist FWC biologists in learning
more about this predator in the
Everglades. And every time a python
is destroyed, it means there is one
less python slithering through the
wilds of Florida.
The American Veterinary Medical
Association provides a laudable
set of objectives for euthanasia of
animals in laboratory and research
settings. However, these objectives
are not always practical in the
wild. The AVMA's objectives are
guidelines, but are not mandatory.
The FWC has been committed to
preventing the spread of nornative
species throughout the state. In
January 2008, the Commission
approved revised regulations for
nonnative and captive wildlife that
require anyone owning a Reptile of
Concern to be permitted through the
FWC. We define a Reptile of Concern
as a reptile that has habits that may
adversely affect the environment
or may be a threat to public safety.
Reptiles of Concern must be
licensed by the FWC to be kept as
a pet. The license costs $100 per
year and mandates specific caging
requirements. Reptiles of Concern
more than two inches in diameter
must be implanted with a microchip

that identifies the animal.
It is unlawful to allow these
exotic pets to escape or to release
them into the wild. The FWC holds
Nonnative Pet Amnesty Days
throughout the year so people who
can no longer keep or care for a
nonnative pet can bring them to us
for adoption by licensed recipients.
SWe have made every effort to ensure
that no more of these pythons are
allowed to escape into the wild.
Our python permit program is.
just the beginning. We are working
with Everglades National Park, the
South Florida Water Management
District, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service and others on this problem.
How the pythons are disposed of is
not the issue; how we work together
to solve a problem is. All groups
- nonprofits, governmental and
private - should be working toward
one goal in the case of the Burmese
python in the Everglades, which is
their eradication from a place where
they do not belong.
- The FWC's main responsibility
remains to reduce populations of
a problematic species to minimize
impacts to native fish and wildlife,
their habitats and to residents of

I, Margaret Cordes, apologize to the
citizens of Washington County for the
sale of prescription drugs, and any
problems doing so might have caused.
It won't happen again.
Margaret K. Cordes

To All Of The Citizens Of
Washington County:
First of all I want to give
thanks to my Lord and Savior
who's head of my life today.
On Jan. 18, 2009, 1 was ar-
rested in Washington County
for principle to sale crack co-
caine. I know if you're selling
drugs, using drugs, or even buying drugs, it's against
the law, and. you'll eventually get caught. I tried it, and
I got caught. Anything you do wrong you'll eventually
get caught, what's done in the dark will soon come to
the light. So to all my citizens out there, please say no
to drugs. 1 know what I've done was wrong, and I'm
asking all my fellow citizens of Washington County to
please forgive me for my mistake I made. I would also
like to say to our Sheriff Bobby Haddock, and his depu-
ties on the force, I would like to apologize to all of you.
Final thanks go out to Judge Allen Register, State At-
torney Gregory T. Wilson and the public defender Floyd
Griffith who worked hard to give me a second chance
to get my life together. Thank God for saving me, if He
changed me, He'll change anybody.

Possum King and Queen crowned

Managing Editor
WAUSAU - Competition was brisk Friday night
at the world-famous Possum Palace in Wausau as
four men and seven women vied for the titles of
Possum King and Queen at the 40th annual iFn-
day & Possum Festival.
Furgil Flemdipper and Wallbacker Canderass
were crowned Possum King and Queen Friday
night at the Possum Palace in Wausau, but it was
a tough decision for judges Vera Truett, Dallas
Carter and Gail Culbreth. -
The crowning opened the 40th annual Fbnday
& Possum Festival on Saturday.
Flemdipper headed a field of four, including
first runner-up Ramblin' Sam Jr., second run
ner-up Waldo Possum Lafayette and Grandpa
Possum. Canderass beat out a field of six other
women, including first runner-up Purty Possum,
second runner-up Floozie Possum, and Possum-
licious, Nannie McFlea, Maybeline Dupree, and
Emma Some Beggins.
2008 Possum Queen Francesca relinquished
her crown, and it was clearly a bittersweet mo-
ment, but she held up like a trouper, doing the
dance that helped her win last year.
.Wayne Gentry once again served as emcee for
the pageant. Gentry questioned each contestant on I
a possum recipe (women), how to catch a possum
(men) and why they want to represent Wausau.
The royalty will represent the Flnday & Pos-
sum Festival at a wide variety of local, regional,
national and international activities throughout
the coming year.

This eight-hour course is developed especially for the se-
nior driver and reviews basic driving knowledge, new traf-
fic laws and introduces techniques to help offset the effects
of the aging process on driver performance. It is geared
to safety needs and helping to compensate for age related
changes. This mature driving course is approved by the
DHSMV for a three-year insurance premium reduction.
There is no testing and only a minimum course fee of
$12 for AARP members and $14 for non-AARP members.
Please enroll by calling Debra at the Washington County
Council on Aging at 638-6217. Washington Co. Council on

PROMISE offers instruction to Panhandle science teachers

Whether they worked
with air tracks and spark
timers or waded in Oobleck,
science educators from the
Panhandle and other dis-
tricts across Florida ben-
efited from the content-fo-
cused science instruction
afforded by the Florida
Partnership to Rejuvenate
and Optimize Mathematics.
and Science Education in
Florida (PROMiSE) sum-
mer institutes. The Pan-
handle Area Educational
Consortium (PAEC) and
Florida State University
were two of the summer in-
stitute partners.
As a result of the PROM-

iSE summer institutes,
teachers had a unique op-
portunity to enrich their un-
derstanding of science con-
tent from teams consisting
of faculty from Colleges of
Arts and Science, curricu-
lum experts and classroom
teachers. Thirty-three mid-
dle and high school science
teachers participated in
each two-week (60 hours)
A workshop on Forces
and Motion for middle and
high school teachers was
held June 29-July 10 at FSU
in Tallahassee. David Graf,
Ph.D., from the National
High Magnetic Field Labo-

ratory was the lead instruc-
tor. He was assisted by
Tony Anderson, PAEC ad-
ministrator of Administra-
tive Services, Mary Hinson,
a Jackson County eighth-
grade math teacher from
Marianna Middle School,
and Dr. Danielle Sheridan,
with the Florida Center for
Research in Science, Tech-
nology, Engineering and
Mathematics. Teachers
from Franklin, Gadsden,
Gulf, Jackson, Jefferson,
Liberty, Madison, Taylor,
Wakulla, Washington coun-
ties and from FAMU Devel-
opmental Research School
and Florida State Univer-

sity Schools participated.
Another workshop on
Matter and Energy was
held at PAEC in Chipley
July 13-23 for science teach-
ers of students in grades
K-6. The lead instructor
for this institute was James
Brooks, Ph.D., from the Na-
tional High Magnetic Field
Laboratory in Tallahassee.
He was assisted by Brenda
Crouch, instructional de-
livery consultant at PAEC,
and Edna Alford, a fifth-
grade science teacher at
Sneads Elementary School.
Teachers from Calhoun,
Holmes, Jackson, Walton
and Washington counties

Additional institutes
sponsored by PAEC were
the Earth and Space Sci-
ences Institute .held at
PAEC June 29-July 10,
and the Geometry and
Measurement Institute
held at the National High
Magnetic Field Laboratory
July 20-30. Instructors for
the Earth and Space Sci-
ence Institute were Flip
Froelich, Ph.D., and Mabry
Gaboardi, Ph.D., both from
the FSU College of Arts and
Science. Instruction for the
Geometry and Measure-
ment Institute was led by
Martha Gioiellie and Lynn

Webb, Seminole County
mathematics teachers, and
Eric Klassen, a geometry
professor in FSU's Math-
ematics Department.
The Florida PROMiSE is
a statewide project focused
on the Next Generation
Sunshine State Standards
for Math and Science. The
intent of the professional
development offered in
the series of summer insti-
tutes, held across the state
this summer, was to en-
hance educators' depth of
content knowledge. This is
a'key requirement for suc-
cessful implementation ,of
the standards.

FEC receives Gold Classic Telly awards

PAEC's Florida Educa-
tion Channel (FEC) has
received two more pres-
tigious awards. FEC was
recently notified that two
programs from the, 2002
Curriculum Connection
Series had won Classic
Telly Awards. "Veterans'
Day: Honoring Our Heri-
tage" and "9/11: What Can
We Learn?" were both
honored with a 30th Anni-

versary Gold Classic Telly
Award in the TV Programs,
Segment or Promotional
Pieces category.
FEC gained interna-
tional recognition earlier
this year for the production
of the, science documen-
tary "Teachers Doing Real
Science in the Real World."
In December 2008, it re-
ceived the Aurora Awards

DEP announces

stimulus loan

for Graceville
GRACEVILLE - The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP) recently
awarded $1.9 million to Graceville for waste-
waterimanagement. The funds, part of DEP's
Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF)
Program, will fund the rehabilitation of the
city's sewer collection system.
The work is needed to keep excessive
storm water inflow and groundwater from
leaking into the aged collection system. A
DEP consent order requires the city to make
the repairs to prevent further water quality
The funds are a part of the approximately
$212 million awarded to Florida from the fed-
eral American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act of 2009 (ARRA) to help local govern-
ments finance improvements to wastewater,
storm water and drinking water facilities
essential to protecting public health and the
environment across the state. Florida is one
of the first states to have met all the require-
ments necessary to receive the full amount
of ARRA funds to support both the CWSRF
as well as the Drinking Water State Revolv-
ing Fmnd (DWSRF).
Graceville was one of the communities re- .
cently approved to receive these funds under
DEP's CWSRF and DWSRF loan programs.
There are 48 projects in 43 Florida commu-
nities scheduled to receive ARRA money to
help build critical drinking water, wastewa-
ter and storm water infrastructure.
DEP has committed $197 million of the
$212 million in available CWSRF and DWS-
RF ARRA funding. There is $15 million in
drinking water funds remaining for appli-
cants as they complete the planning, design
and permitting necessary to begin construc-
tion. Qualifying drinking water projects will
be selected for the remaining ARRA funds,
based on their readiness and priority, at a fu-
ture public hearing. DEP will also continue
to work with all applicants to help them apply
for other funding as it becomes available.
DEP received more than $800 million in
requests for the $80 million of ARRA drink-
ing water project funds and more than $1.5
billion in requests competing for $132.3 mil-
lion in ARRA wastewater and storm water
DEP established its SRF programs, un-
der agreements with the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency, to provide low-interest fi-
nancing to plan, design and build wastewa-
ter, storm water and drinking water systems.
Funded by federal capitalization grants, state
matching funds, loan repayments, interest
earnings, and periodic bond issues, SRF
loans are offered at interest rates substan-
tially below current market rates and help
make loans affordable. Repayments from
earlier loans are used to make new loans, al-
lowing the program to operate in perpetuity.
Since 1999, DEP has invested more than
$3.5 billion to upgrade and improve drinking
water and wastewater facilities and clean
up storm water pollution, finding close to
2,100 projects statewide. More than $2.6 bil-
lion of this amount has come from the SRF

volving Funds, visit www.dep.state.fl.us/wa-

The tree is

own by its fruit

Fresh, delicious
blueberries are a delicacy
any time of the year, but
especially when one can
pick from the tree when
the fruit is in season and
plentiful as it has been
and wife,
Lihda, may
well be the
in the area. PERR
The name
for the PRATTLE
operation Perry Wells
is Muffin's
Blueberry Patch. Muffin
is Bob's endearing name
given to his wife, Linda.
Their young and
productive trees are
easily seen adjacent to
their Highway 277 home,
located on the south side
of Hard Labor Creek.
The well groomed
blueberry farm offers
berries for sale on a you
pick plan only.
Ingenious and
innovative Bob Wells has
shown his clever and
creative ideas in designing
,useful and helpful "tools"
as a convenience to the
customers who patronize
the blue berry field.
Due to the "prattler's
close kinship to Bob,
your writer readily sees
traits in him resembling
his father, Josh Wells,
who was able to devise
helpful and labor saving
inventions throughout his
Uncle Josh Wells, my
dad's older brother, is
the person who came up
with a system of running
water in the kitchen
of our grandmother,
Hannah Malinda Brock
Wells and James Thomas
Wells home. This was
long before the advent
of electricity in the
rural area where our
grandparents lived. He
merely ran a pipe from an
open well in the back yard
into grandma's kitchen,
hooked a pitcher pump to
the pipe and mounted it.on
a sink. With a few pumping
strokes, water gushed out
quickly, thus providing

the convenience of ample
water readily available for
kitchen use.
This is the same Josh
Wells who jacked the rear
end of his 1929 Buick off
the ground and harnessed
power from a rear wheel
to operate the rollers of
a cane mill in a syrup
making-operation. He
knew how to use jacks for
lifting, poles for sledding
and winches for loading.
,One could say Josh Wells
was an engineer before
his time.
Bob and Linda first
brought a version of
the old time "little red
wagons" equipped with
umbrellas, to their
blueberry acreage. These
wagons are designed
for shade, transporting.

haul their toddlers as the

"pickers" move through
the rows of blueberries
filling baskets with the
succulent fruit..
The next addition
for the convenience of
the berry pickers at the
,Wells Farm is shown
in the foreground of
the photograph which
accompanies this story.
Bob acknowledges that
he copied this idea from
Dennis Gainer, who
originated the rolling
container for massive
gathering of blueberries.
Study the picture
closely and note the
resemblance of the
machine to a fertilizer
spreader for the home
lawn. The idea to push
the hopper under the blue
berry tree and simply
"milk" the ripe, sweet
berries into the container
equipped with a mesh

bottom. Mass production
of berry picking can be
accomplished and the
construction allows for
easy removal of imperfect
berries as well as trash,
Review the picture and
note the canvas covered
high frame machine,
complete with wheels.
The idea is to provide
shade to the blue berry
pickers throughout the
day. The canvas is easily
switched from left to right,
thus providing protection
from the sun should
pickers be in the field in
early morning or in the
afternoon. The canvas
came from an abandoned
trampoline. The blueberry
entrepreneur labels
his machine as "Pull-a-
Shade" by Bob.
Hybrid blueberries
are not new to the area.

years ago just north of

blueberries as evidenced
by advertising in the
newspaper and by seeing
the quantities of the
popular, and well accepted
health food, being sold
at Chipley's Farmer's
During my upbringing,
berry picking meant
a visit to the Jack and
Bunch Hewitt farm. The
berries were small and,
as my brother Jim Wells
remembers, it took a lot
of picking to cover the
bottom of gallon bucket.

Berry picking for our aunt,
Lela Wells Harris, was the
Wells boys' way of working
out a new shirt. It was
homemade and probably
the going price for the
fabric was 49 cents.
Earl Barber, my
friend since childhood,
whose interesting family
history is recorded on
page 145 of the Heritage
of Washington Book,
recently returned to
Washington County to
make his home. He
reminded me that Jesse
and Charity Bush,
the home in which he
lived, also had a field of
blueberries.Maybe this
writer picked some there
Blueberry farming
is not all fun as can
be attested to by Jack
Tison and Bob Wells.
After a relatively short
production season, there
is much pruning required.
Weeds and insect control
by spraying, and the
necessary watering and
fertilizing for next year's
crop is part of the upkeep,
of a berry operation.
The "prattler" feels
sure that Bob and Linda
are familiar with the
oft quoted reminder in
support of innovation
which is attributed to
Ralph Waldo Emerson.
"Build a better mouse
trap and the world will
beat a path to your door."
The author'is unknown
to this second statement:
"Necessity is'the mother
of invention." Research
shows this may be a
short form of a move to
complete genealogy.
Nutritionists report
that blueberries are an
excellent food for patients
with heart problems.. They
are definitely appealing
to the eye and delicious to
the taste. It you can get
invited into a blueberry
field soon, a few berries
might have survived
the extreme heat and
dry weather. If not, be
prepared to visit your
favorite field next year
for a year round supply of
food that is good for the
heart and satisfying'to the
taste buds.
See you all next week.

to think about
I wonder what the man in Auguste
Rodin's sculpture "The Thinker" is
thinking about. You know the sculpture
I mean. The man is sitting naked, elbow
on knee, chin on fist. All his muscles
are tensed. Even his toes are clenching
at the rock on which he sits.
His whole body is
focused on thinking. He
is thinking purposefully,
not simply daydreaming.
Much commentary is
written about who "The ,
Thinker" is. Some say.
he is a poet. Others
say he is a creator, the ONE WOkD
Creator. Andrew Hollinger
Many men have tried
to get into the mind
of "The Thinker." Men have tried to
become the man whois the thinker. We
call those men Great Thinkers.
Our Great Thinkers tense their
bodies in focused thinking. They desire
to know how and why things work This
thinking process has worked out well
for them and for us. We've benefited
from the Great Thinkers'insight,
Innovation and invention. And they've
gotten to mull over subjects the rest of
us don't even know exist.
Great Thinkers have influence. How
many times have you heard someone
quote Thoreau, Ghandi or Churchill?
When a Great Thinker thinks, his
ideas inspire disciples. Those disciples
become an extension of that Great
Thinker's ideas, giving life to all his
thoughts. Whats more, the disciples
begin to latch themselves not only to
that Great Thinker's thoughts, but
also to his opinions, giving him a wider
range of influence and power.
I've been reading the thoughts of
some Great Thinkers. Their words
sometimes help my own ideas find
a voice. As I read, I noticed some
similarities in the attributes of many
of our Great Thinkers. I noticed, for
example, that their thoughts reveal a
loss of faith. Their loss of faith. I mean
this in two ways.
Great Thinkers have lost faith
in things that work just because."
They've been able to discern what
makes things tick But if some
subject can'tbe reduced scientifically,
experimentally or even poetically, it is
a variable in their world equation. Our.
Great Thinkers become cynical.
Politics, economics, education and
creation are among the unreliable
sciences that earn criticism from Great
Thinkers. They can't agree on the
principal principles.
A number of Great Thinkers, also,
have lost their personal faith, a faith
in God. For whatever reason, it's too
hard for them to believe in and rely on
Someone that surpasses the empirical
and requires belief without physical
evidence. But then, that's what faith is
supposed to be about.
Of course there are exceptions; my
American History teacher advised me
never to write in absolutes: "Rarely will
you come across something that only
happened for one reason, or can be
done only one way."
.Not every Great Thinker has
disowned religion. There exist Great
Thinkers of faith, intense'and focused
on things political, economic and
educational. We need them; they guide
us through the fog.
The future holds plenty of thinking.
The Great Thinkers of our century will
give.us our most memorable advances
in worldwide politics, economics and
technology. It will be amazing. And
what if our Great Thinkers were men
and women of great and unflappable
faith? What if our moder-day
Thoreaus were as reverent as Billy
Graham? What kind of influence would
they have? What would that future look
It gives us pause think

Why pray?

Normally when I'm
traveling, I like to listen to
a radio station that plays
Christian music because I like
to sing while I travel. Judy;
my wife, likes talk radio. So
when we travel together, it is
normally one or the
other. We sort of switch
back and forth.
Then there are
times like this past
Friday, when I called
her and invited her -,
out for a date. So.
when she got home, _ FRI
we headed to Panama . H
City. When it's just us T
and we want to enjoy
each other's company,
as God intended for us to as
husband and wife, we put the
radio on what I think they call
adult contemporary; it makes
good background music as you
travel together and share.
Actually, on our way home,
"Delilah" was on the radio.
She always has a pretty good
program, as she dedicates
songs to listeners as people
call in and share things on
their minds. And no, I have
not always agreed with her,
but oftentimes, she is right on
target. Friday evening was one
of those times.

A lady called in with some
concerns about her husband;
she was concerned he was
working so much and hard to
support her family, which he
had married into, and now had
to take care of her because her
health was not good,
In short, Delilah asked
'her if she had prayed, to
S which the lady said she
had, and then Delilah
said, "No, you haven't.
. . If you are going to
worry, why pray?
DM THE If you pray, then
IEART why worry?".
im Hall Judy and I
thought of
people we know
who needed to
hear those words.
Delilah then asked
her whether she
lived where there
were any birds she
could see, and she
said she did. Delilah
then told her that God
loved her more than the
birds, and if He took care of
the birds, He would take care
of her and her situation. "Just
S-pray and then trust the Lord."
That's pretty good stuff
coming from secular radio.

That's why back in the
days when I did DJ work
on radio stations, I would
take opportunities to host a
program from time to time on
a secular radio station. I could
plant a seed like she did, before
the devil realized what had
been done. That's also why I
like to write these things - it

.gets His word in to places that
preaching never would.
You see, Jesus once shared
with His disciples as people
began to be concerned about
many things and one man
had asked Jesus to go to his .
brother and talk him into
sharing his inheritance with
him, to which Jesus said, "Life
is more than food, and the
body is more than clothing.
I Consider the ravens, for they
neither sow nor reap, which
have neither storehouse
nor barn; and God feeds
"Of how much more
value are you than
the birds? And which
of you by worrying
can add one cubit to
his stature? If you
then are not able
to do the least, why
are you anxious for
the rest? Consider
the lilies, how they
grow: they neither
toil nor spin; and
yet I say to you,
even Solomon in
all his glory was
not arrayed like one
of these. If then God so
clothes the grass, which
today is in the field and

tomorrow is thrown into the
oven, how much more will He
clothe you, 0 you of little faith?
"And do not seek what you
should eat or what you should
drink, nor have an anxious
mind. For all these things the
nations of the world seek after,
and your Father knows that
you need these things. But.
seek the kingdom of God, and
all these things shall be added
to you." (Luke 12:23-31, NKJV).
That is some of the best
advice ever given to people
with concerns. Seek the Lord
first. If you are in trouble,
change your priorities and put
Him in.first place, and as you
seek him and begin to follow
Him, then the rest of your life
will come together.
"If you are going to worry,
why pray? If you pray, then why

Comfort for the Sorrowful
The fourth spiritual work of mercy is to comfort the sorrowful.
Unfortunately, the world is full of pain and suffering, and we
need not look far to find someone in need
of comforting. Philosophers have often
referred to this realm as a "veil of tears,"
suggesting that sorrow is the essence of
our earthly existence. But surely, that goes
too far.Thereis joy amongst the sadness,
and great evils often give rise tt incred-
ible acts of mercy and forgiveness. Life is a
mixed bag, some good and some bad, and
what gives our lives meaning is the ability
to improve the balance of good over bad.
Sometimes,this involves increasing the
happiness of others and at other times it
means decreasing their pain. Comforting the sorrowful may be
as simple as sending a sympathy card to someone who has lost
a loved one, or it may be as complicated as rescuing someone
who is suicidal. Often, the other person just needs someone to
bewith and listen to theim.We should not feel compelled to give
them advice nor should we presume that we understand what
they are going through. More appropriately, we should just let
them know that we truly care about them and are there to listen
and help.We may wish to consider suggesting or even arranging
professional help for the person suffering. Most people who are
deeply suffering would benefit from professional counseling
of some kind, whether it is with their pastor,their doctor, or a
psychotherapist. Finally, although we should not assume that we
can do the work of a trained professional,we should try to be ,
there for them in their hour of need.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Spiny lobster season begins Aug. 6

TALLAHASSEE - The annual
opening of the Florida spiny lobster
harvest season kick-off is August 6.
Spiny lobsters, also known as rock
lobsters, are crustaceans related to
crabs, shrimp, crayfish and the Span-
ish lobster. '
.The commercial fishery for spiny
lobster occurs off South Florida and
primarily in the Florida Keys. The
majority of the spiny lobster landed
in the U.S is from Florida. According
to the National Oceanic Atmospheric
Administration's National Marine
Fisheries, spiny lobster population
levels are estimated to be high and
no over fishing is occurring. Howev-
er, to assure sustainability, Florida's
spiny lobster industry supports a trap
reduction program put forth by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission. This program will
help reduce the number of traps that
can be used in the commercial spiny
lobster fishery.
Current Florida regulations for
the spiny lobster fishery include a
commercial trap reduction program,
a harvest season that goes from Aug.
6 to March 31, a minimum carapace
length of three inches, gear prohibi-
tions and prohibition of harvesting
egg-bearing lobsters.
A cooked spiny lobster produces
a melt-in-your-mouth white meat
that is mild with a slightly sweet
flavor. It is low in calories and high in
protein. Spiny lobsters are usually

sold frozen, not live like Maine lob-
sters. Unlike their cold-water cous-
ins, they don't have claws - only the
tail is eaten. Lobster-lovers some-
times debate the merits of both vari-
eties, but many Floridians prefer the
spiny lobster because it is lower in
cholesterol and they appreciate that
it is harvested locally.
When purchasing Florida's spiny
lobsters, you should plan on about
one pound per serving. Follow these
.tips to make the most of your culinary
*Cook lobster tail meat until
opaque and plump.
*Boiled lobster: Place in boiling
salted water and simmer for 12 to 15
minutes. For tails only, simmer for 5
to 10 minutes depending on size.
* Grilled lobster: Brush tail meat
with olive oil and place on grill, meat
side down, for 5-6 minutes per side.
*To remove tail meat from a raw,
whole lobster: Break tail section
away from the body. Cut through the
underside of the tail shell with kitch-
eh shears. Pull shell apart from top to
fan tip and remove meat. Remove the
sand vein with a shallow cut along the
top of the meat.
If you want to go a little more
gourmet, try this "Crab-Stuffed Flor-
ida Lobster" recipe created by the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer services' Bureau of
Seafood and Aquaculture. This rec-
ipe offers a double bonus because it

contains Florida spiny lobster and
Florida blue crab.
