Washington County Extension Service
Opening day at the Chipley Farmers
Market was a big hit. The market's first day
of the summer season was Thursday May 22.
The market was open from 2 to 6 pm.
Vendors began arriving two hours before the
market opened trying to get a jump on the
crowd and their competition.
Produce that was available were green
beans, tomatoes, squash, potatoes, kale,
peaches, onions, and Mayhaws, just to name
a few. Most all of the produce available is
locally grown except for what is out of
season or in short supply in the area.

This market is a good way to support your
local community and will be open every
Thursday from 2-6 pm until produce is no
longer locally available.
All growers interested in selling at the
Chipley Farmers market must possess a
grower's permit in their County and fill out
a Farmers market application at the
UF/IFAS Washington County Extension
Office on Hwy 90 in Chipley. Stall rental
fees will be $10 a week or $100 in advance
for the whole season.

Taking a look back at Caryville

With the death of longtime
SCaryville resident and family friend,
'Christine McKinnon Jenkins, a few
weeks ago, my mind has been on the
town of Caryville, it's citizens of
years past and the economic impact
that particular location has had on
Washington County's development
and growth.
Caryville has refused more than
one time to become one of the
county's forgotten towns. Caryville's
history pre dates the "prattler"
arrival in the world. As far back as I
dan remem-
ber there
has always
been a
W4 and the vil-
E large and it's
people have
P S played an
fPe S important
role in the
Prattle well being of
Perry Wells the Wells
The most
accepted matter of Caryville's
name, and the one listed in Allen
Morris' The Florida Handbook, is
that the name came from R. A.
Cary. He was secretary to the P.
and A. Railroad the builder of
the rail line coming to the area in
the early 1880s.
The place was originally called
Half Moon Bluff and it is reported
that much of the materials for the
building of the railroad arrived by
steamship navigated to Caryville
from Pensacola, arriving on the
Chocotowhatchee River.
The building of the railroad
through the area had just got started
when a parcel of land was sold in the
county which later was to become
Caryville. Big scale timber operations
began with the establishment of San-
ford Lumber Company of Caryville,
before the turn of the century. By

The announcement of the removal of the Caryville depot ran in the

1903, the sawmill, with it's other oper-
ations, was supplying employment to
about 400 "hands". W L. Whitlock of
Pensacola was operating what is
described as the first saw mill.
Henderson-Waits acquired the
holding of the sawmill operation in
1912. By 1925, the new owners had
purchased 125,000 acres of sur-
rounding land, heavily covered with
virgin pine trees. At the height of
the milling of timber, logs were
hauled in by steam locomotive with
train tracks laid as far south as Ebro
for this purpose.
One of the spur railroad lines ran
just to the south border of the farm
and land owned by my parents,
Hugh and Marie Harris Wells, who
married in 1925. The first economic
impact of this train traveling near
our home, was the opportunity for
my father to cut "cord wood"and
place for pickup by the train. This
wood was used to fire the boilers of
the steam powered locomotives.

Our dad had an empty Prince
Albert tobacco tin installed at his
wood rack and the engineer, or fire-
man, on the train left company vouch-
ers, or "coupons", as daddy called
them, as payment for his wood.
Caryville was plagued with fires
and floods during it's early history.
The most destructive flood came in
March 1929 when the town was
almost destroyed by high water,
driving people from their home with
all personal belonging totally lost.
Our family's income was further
augmented by the Caryville sawmill
and the train operation as my dad
established a "peddling" route tak-
ing him all the way into Caryville for
a day long selling of farm products.
The trip was made on a Saturday,
which was payday at the mill. Dad
would accept the sawmill company's
script as payment for his vegetables.
He was able to spend his "coupons"
from the sale "cord wood", plus
use the payroll script as cash in the

company's general store.
The store sold groceries in addi-
tion to a full line of other merchan-
dise needed by the sawmill and rail-
road workers, as well as farmers of
the area. Caryville was plagued by
fires and floods during it's early his-
tory. In March 1929, the flooding
Choctowchatee River almost totally
wiped out the town business and
residential area. Many family lost
their houses and all their personal
belongings, but eventually made
come back and continued living and
working in the town.
Even though the Sataurday pay-
day at the Caryville sawmill was a
day of almost total jubilation among
employees and their families, deadly
violence did explode there on at
least one occasion.
Hugh Wells, the peddler, wit-
nessed the shooting which occurred
on Saturday afternoon, July 1, 1934,.
Joe Brock and his 16-year-old son,
Fred Brock, were gunned down as
crowds were gathered at the com-
missary along side the railroad,
which was also called the Company
Store. My father related the story
many, many time which he, and
other old timers, labeled as a sense-
less, tragic and unnecessary killing.
The Brock Family burying plot at
Bethel Primitive Baptist Church
holds a grim reminder of the father
and son deaths with tombstone
plainly listing names with the same
date of death. No mention was
made of it being a double murder.
Caryville overcame many obsta-
cles with the sawmill business pros-
pering for awhile and then falling io
bad time with the work force cut
drastically with many workers losing
their jobs. Incorporation of the
town, which came in 1931, was
allowed to lapse in 1954.
In 1965, the town's residents voted
to again incorporate Caryville, Calvit
Walker was elected Mayor. The town
council under the new charter were

Franklin P. Evans, Herman Brown,
Preston Anderson, Ernest Peters and
Luther Whitaker. Later, Gaston
Blyan, Cleston Tadlock and Odell
Parrish served on the council.
A totally new civic awakening
seemed to be coming to Caryville.
The town saw a Wayside Park build
on the river, a totally new water sys-
tem was installed and a minimum
custody vocational state prison
prison facility was built at the south
border of the town.
Disastrous flooding once again vis-
ited Caryville in 1990 and in 1994.
This resulted in a massive buyout of
Caryville home by FEMA, which
many residents took advantage of.
After selling their home in the town,
they moved to higher ground, but still
maintaining close ties to the area.
Caryville city government is still
intact and functioning today. Gone
are the old line businesses of Jenk-
ins Dixie Dandy, Hodges Store,
Harrison Lumber Company,
Arnold Lumber Company, and
other stores and shops which one
flourished in the town.
Few homes and fewer business
endeavors now are seen in the once
thriving town of Caryville.
The once booming sawmill town
of Caryville has joined other Wash-
ington County smaller municipali-
ties by slipping into what some have
described as "ghost towns". It, along
with many of the other villages, has
left a rich history and heritage and
memories that will long live in the
hearts and minds of those to recall
so vividly, the town's colorful past.
See you all next week.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The March 1929
flood is still known as "the Hoover
Flood" in Geneva, Ala. After several
years of intense effort by local and state
leaders the levee protecting that city was
finally built by the US. Army Corps of
Engineers. The levee was completely
rebuilt severalyears ago.

olF c c I ..fi cation is a Real Word

Floccinaucinihilipilification is
a real word. And you've seen it
before. It's on that Geico com-
mercial where all the kids are at
a spelling bee; then the voice
over says, "No hard words,
maybe that's why Geico is so
easy." But I'm not plugging
insurance; I'm plugging the
word. It means the estimation of
something as trivial or worthless.
At twenty-nine letters, it used
to hold the record for longest
word. Today the longest word is
a forty-five-letter monstrosity
that means "miner's black lung
disease." But more about floc-
cinaucinihilipilification. The
pronunciation? I'd say don't
worry too much about it. For
those who must know, however,
here's a little guidance. All the i's
make the short vowel sound, like
in "sit." The double c is made
with the "ks" sound, like in
Flocci...fication was invented
as a joke at Eton College in the
eighteenth century. In Latin,
"flocci," "nauci," "nihili," and
pilii" are four separate words that
mean of little or no value or noth-
ing. Somebody at Eton put the
words together and added the
noun suffix fictiono" to create a
new word meaning "deciding that

One Word

something is worthless." And
somehow the word found its way
into a dictionary.
Including medical terms and
slang, English has approximately
five million words. Two to three
million if you eliminate the slang
and medical stuff. The sixth edi-
tion Oxford English Dictionary,
the largest English word collec-
tion, only contains 616,000 of
those words. And that's still
more than Spanish (approx.
150,000), French (approx.
150,000), and German (approx.
185,000) contain combined.
Usually flocci...fication is
not used in context, only as an

example of a long word. The scary
thing is that it could become
extinct. New words are invented
and old words become obsolete
all the time. Aword is in danger of
going the way of the dodo when it
stops getting used. After enough
time has passed the word is con-
sidered archaic and put into the
word time capsule.
I fear for the future of
flocci...fication. I could only find
two recorded instances where it
was used in a spoken context,
the last time in 1999 (not count-
ing the Geico commercial).
There is still hope. Lexicogra-
phers (people who write diction-
aries) won't euthanize a word if
people still use it. So I want to
start a campaign to save floccin-
We have to use the word in
daily conversation. To do this, we
need to know a few more things.
Flocci...fication is a noun. If you
need a verb, change fictiono" to
"ficate." From there it's easy to
add an "s" or "ing" to create
other forms.
An example! "George was in
my room the other day and was
floccinaucinihilipilificating my
Star Wars collection. You know, I
wish he wouldn't floccinaucini-
hilipilificate like that. I think I will

tell him that his floccinaucinihilip-
ilification of my things really hurts
my feelings." [Author's Note: I
wouldn't suggest using all fonns
of the word in one setting like
that. Spread the love.]
It's a versatile word too. If you
need to score some points on the
smart-o-meter you can casually
slip flocci...fication into your
conversation. People will ooh
and ahh all over you and your
vocabulary. The word is also a
conversation piece, especially
good to fill up those awkward
silences. Start out with, "Did you
know flocci...fication is a real
word?" The conversation goes
on from there.
Maybe I'm beating a dead
horse. Maybe you don't care if
another word goes to the big dic-
tionary in the sky. And perhaps
you think all this information
about a little-used word is
useless and not worth knowing.
Well, my friend, your
floccinaucinihilipilification of my
studies is unwelcome.
And kudos to Geico for
getting the ball rolling for my
Save the Word campaign.

Words of war with Victor Davis Hanson

Victor Davis Hanson, a former classics
professor, is a renowned conservative scholar
of ancient history and military affairs who's
recently become a nationally syndicated
columnist and blogger. The author of 17
books with titles like 'A War Like No Other:
How the Athenians and Spartans Fought the
Peloponnesian War," "An Autumn of War"
and "Mexifomia: A State of Becoming," he is
the senior fellow in residence in classics and
military history at the Hoover Institution on
the Stanford University campus. Hanson,
whose scholarship and interest in individual
freedom recently earned him a 2008 Bradley
Prize worth
$250,000 from the
Foundation, was
on his farm near
the central
California town of
Selma when I
called to ask him
about his favorite
war books.
Opinion Q: What's the
Opinion greatest book on
Bill Steigerwald war ever written?
A: I think
"Peloponnesian War" is the most astute. It's
the second-earliest history of war and it's not
only a testament to the use of source material
and the ability to provide a coherent
narrative, but it's analytical and it becomes
almost philosophical in its dissection of
human nature.
Q: Has everyone else been trying to rise to
those standards ever since?
A: Yes, I think so. The adjective
"Thucydidean" is pretty much a standard
brand now that people understand that
ideally a historian would have three
components in a successful history: One
would be that they would use source
materials in an analytic rather than
prejudicial manner; and two, they would be
able to draw together a lot of sources and
provide an engaging narrative; and then
three, that their history would speak to
readers in terms of philosophy beyond just
the particular history or period or era they
are narrating
Q: What was the best book about World
War II?'
A: I think Gerhard Weinberg's 'A World
at Arms" (1994: Cambridge University
Press). It's a single-volume (1,208-page)
history of World War II. What's so good
about it is, he looks at it in a holistic fashion,
so we understand for the first time how the
Balkan uprising affected German war plans.
Or what was going on in the Japanese empire

happened. He understands source material
very well and he has an eye for trying to give
us a world at war other than just Britain,
Germany and the United States. It shows
how their ideas filtered out into so many
different theaters and how the ultimate result
of that is how lucky we were to win.
Q: What's the best anti-war book?
A: There was a whole genre of anti-war
books that followed the First World War.
There are novels such as "All Quiet on the
Western Front" or memoirs like Robert
Graves' "Good-bye to All That," or poetry by
people like Siegfried Sassoon that came out of
the World War I experience in Europe.
Europe had never experienced anything like
that before. There are other things that have
been written, like "The Red Badge of
Courage," and plays going back to the Greeks,
like "The Trojan Women" or Aristophanes'
comedy "Lysistrata," that were anti-war in
nature. But it seems to me that World War I
and the advent of industrial war created entire
new genres of novels, poetry and memoirs that
started with the premise that there was
nothing at all possibly glorious about war.
Q: How many years after a war does a

historian need to get a proper perspective?
A: I think it takes a half century.... It takes
the death of people, and that's usually 50
years. In the case of World War II, we had a
radical change of heart once Eisenhower
passed away and once Gen. Omar Bradley
passed away, because they were icons of the
American milita r. If we were to say Bradley
was not as good a general as George Patton,
that would have been heresy. Patton died
right after the war and was caricatured as an
uncouth bigmouth. But after Bradley died
and there was not the Bradley core of
scholars clients, so to speak in the military
and also in the civilian world, then people
began to look at World War II with a fresh
start. So you can see that the last two or three
biographies of Patton have been very
sympathetic. They have started to say that it
was Bradley who was responsible for the
Falaise Gap (in Normandy); it was Bradley
who didn't have a good plan to restore the
Bulge; it was Eisenhower who was naive
about Czechoslovakia and Berlin. These
questions were not even raised before,
because of the enormous stature they held
while they were alive. That's true of every
war; you really can't question in a
disinterested fashion because the principals
who are still alive have their various spheres
of influence. I don't think we'll know abut
Iraq until all the major players are gone.
Q: What lessons has the war in Iraq taught
future historians?
A: It's a reminder that there are new
lessons in war. No war turns out as one

Concern over

closing drivers

license office

To the Editor:
I am writing out of concern for the citizens of Holmes
and Washington counties. I know your paper ran a short
article last week about the closing of the driver's license
office here in Bonifay. This is an outrage! The long-time
staff at this local office have provided excellent service
over the years.
Do people realize that they will have to drive to Mari-
anna, DeFuniak Springs or Panama City to visit an office
after July 1 ? With the cost of gas, keeping this office open
is the least the state could do for us. If the expense of the
office is truly what the state is trying to save, how about
offering them a room in the courthouse or another county
Citizens of Holmes and Washington counties, if you
are as concerned about this as I am, please reach out to
your state, county, and city government. You can visit
www.flgov.com to get the contact information for our
Governor and other state officials.
Specifically, you can contact Electra Theodorides-
Bustle, executive director, Florida Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles. She can be contacted at (850) 617-2000
or executivedirectorflhsmv.gov. Please join with me in let-
ting our voices be heard, we want to keep our driver's
license office.

There should only be

one valedictorian

To the Editor:
Eating crow is not very tasty. In the past I have been
able to brag that Vernon High School knew how to deter-
mine one valedictorian and one salutatorian, instead of
artificially claiming multiple "number one" students, as
has been the practice for a number of years in Chipley,
Bonifay, and other area schools. No more can I make that
boast. It seems that we at Vernon have joined the igno-
minious ranks of these other schools and have named
three valedictorians this year.
I taught and love each one of these students. I have
no personal bias toward any one of them. I do, however,
believe that we do a disservice to ourselves and to the
students when the administration refuses to do some
simple math and name one valedictorian and one salu-
tatorian. Yes, all three have the same weighted grade-
point average, even carrying out the decimal place
numerous times. The next logical step would be to look
at their numerical averages in the core required classes.
This would take a few minutes, but it would be much bet-
ter than this practice of naming multiple valedictorians
and salutatorians!
I understand that next year we will be recognizing stu-
dents as cum laude, magna cum laude, and summa cum
laude; however, there will still be scholarships available to
(and speeches at commencement to be made by) the
number one student. Surely it cannot be so difficult to
write a brief, concise policy explaining to guidance coun-
selors and administrators how to determine the valedic-
torian and salutatorian of the school.
Hey, I'll even help write that policy! I'm already tired of
the taste of crow.

Highly addictive. In high doses it is extremely poisonous, and is
commonly used as an insecticide.

Monte Dutton

used to drive the Budweiser car?
That's what I thought. I didn't mean
to upset you.
A huge number of fans
went home happy from
Lowe's Motor Speedway on Sun-
day night because Kasey Kahne,
who, at 28, still looks as if
he could join the cast of Dawson's

Creek, is a popular driver.
But the most popular driver,
Dale Earnhardt Jr., still resides
awkwardly in the netherland
between success and failure. That
country is known as Consistency.
Its capital is Okay City. The presi-
dent is, well, probably Bush, the
same one we've got in the USA. It's
a musical country, but the music's
getting stale because the public-
address system has been pumping
out the Rolling Stones' "(I Can't
Get No) Satisfaction" over and
over for months on end now.,
Earnhardt himself is happy
because his non-Budweiser No. 88
is running far better than No. 8 did
last year.
His fans don't care a whit for
that consistency stuff, though. They
retooled this year. While Kahne
was getting the Budweiser paint
scheme, Junior Nation was buying
up everything they could get their
hands on that had the words
Junior, National Guard, Amp and
Mountain Dew on them: T-shirts,
caps, jackets, tiny cars, little cars,
decals for big cars, you name it.

They've been coming to the
races entirely new uniforms.
They've had to double the eights.
Some of them couldn't find a
blade sharp enough to scrape the
"8" decals off their cars, so, by
gosh, they just went out and
bought new cars.
What happens? The otherguy -
this Kasey Kahne comes from
nowhere in May and sweeps the
races at the Track All the
Teams Call Home, Lowe's Motor
His car even looks like the one
Eamhardt Jr used drive. It's kind of
creepy watching it.
Kahne ended a losing streak of
52 races. So what? Earnhardt Jr.'s
riding a losing streak of 74. Junior's
been running better all year. He's
third in the Sprint Cup points.
What the heck is Kahne doing win-
ning? There's no fairness in that.
Fairness? Hold on, kids. Don't
forget: This is NASCAR we're
talking about.

Kiwanis hear from 4H students

Guest speakers at Tuesday's Chip-

students. Accompanied by their
Washington County Project Robo

Sapp and their Washington County
4H Club Coordinator, Julie Dillard,
the eighth grade Roulhac Middle

in 4H Illustrated Talks competition
at the Club level, the County level
and at the District level in DeFu-
niak Springs.
They will compete at the 4H State
Conference to be held at the Uni-
versity of Florida in July.
An "illustrated talk" is a speech
that is given with visual illustrations
and representations. In this case,
each student developed a Power
Point computer presentation that
highlighted key points made in their
Topics for competition were
chosen from an approved list of
topics. Each student chose a topic

based on his own interest and then
researched and developed his talk.
Kasey Aukema chose Eco-Tech as
his topic and explained that Eco-
Tech is basically energy technology.
He discussed several types of
renewable energy, including wind
and solar, bio-fuels derived from
organic plants, Ethanol derived
from corn and sugar cane and bio-
diesel created from new and used
vegetable oil.
Aukema also noted that energy
efficient hybrid cars have increased
in numbers from about 50,000 in
2003 to about 300,000 in 2006.
Michael Pritchard discussed the
Wandering Albatross, a web-footed
bird with the largest wingspan in
existence, approximately 3.1
One bird can weigh from 13 to 26
pounds and feeds mainly on arctic
fish and squid.
Another interesting fact about
this kind of bird is that during mat-

ing season it lays only one egg,
which can be as much as 10 cen-
timeters (4 inches) wide.
Luke Hinson's talk was titled
"How Do You Like Them Apples"?
Details revealed that he was refer-
ring to the iPOD manufactured by
the Apple computer company.
Now in its fifth generation, the
iPOD has grown from a hand held
computer device used primarily to
download music from the inter net
to a hand held computer that now

Excellence Day

2008 at VES

According to VES Principal Kathy Cadwell, "Everyday is
excellence day at VES!" However, May 15 was held in
high regards as it was deemed "VES Excellence Day 2008."
The day began with a performance by Chris Beaman,
pictured above, an artist who starts his routine with a blank
canvas that ends up being filled with color and images of
excellence. Beaman creates his artwork while inspirational
music is played in the background.
After this performance, students were given a copy of
Beaman's work to color themselves.
Then, students were surprisingly presented with their
own green and yellow water bottle with the VES Eagle,
school name, and "Excellence Day" printed on the side.
To cap it all off, just as Excellence Day was coming to an
end, the administration popped into classrooms all over
the campus to pass out popsicles to each student.

an alligator up close; however, the reptile's mouth is
taped shut for security.

VES first-graders get to visit with alligator

First-grade students at Vernon
Elementary School got up close and
friendly with an alligator Tuesday,
May 20. The reptile was escorted by
Wildlife Conservation Officer. War-
rcn Walsingham, who talked about
the importance of animal conserva- '
tion and safety.
He reminded students that if peo-
pie were allowed to have open season
on certain animals, those animals
might face the risk of extinction -
these animals include the alligator.
Walsingham said it is important to
stay clear of alligators and to never feed
them. If a human feeds an alligator as a
pet, that alligator associates huml ans ., ,
with food and when the alligator sees ,
another human, he will expect some- '
thing to eat. If there is nothing, the .
human will become the food. '
After Walsingham's presentation, -
the students were allowed to hold Wildlife Officer Warren Walsingham holds the small alligator so

Presentation made on

agritourism in Bonifay

Staff Writer
Holmes County Ag Center
held a presentation on agri-
tourism by the Farm Bureau of
Northwest Florida May 22.
The opening of a farmer's
market was also announced.
Presenter Deborah
Shuler said agritourism is a
way farmers to thrive in a
time where farming isn't as
profitable any more.
The main idea behind
agritourism is that farmers

open their farm for tours
and special events, using a
variety of themes.
One example is a farm in
Mississippi that grew 'pump-
kins in the fall and strawber-
ries in the spring. Each sea-
son the owner charges groups
or families a set price and
then would give them a tour
of these large patches of
pumpkins or strawberries.
The farmer's market is
scheduled to open June 3, at
the Holmes County Ag Cen-
ter. For information about
the market, call 547-1108.

Friday, May 16, students at Roulhac
Middle School joined students
around the state in celebrating the
First Florida Science Day. The
Annual Florida Science Day was
started to help students focus on
the newly developed Sunshine
State Standards, according to the
Office of Mathematics and Science
at the Florida Department of
Education. The theme for this year
was 'Energy'. Students at RMS
enjoyed participating in various
Energy related activities.

Literacy Volunteers of Washington County provides tutoring services for more than 150 pupils in Washington and Holmes counties.

Literacy Volunteers need funding

Staff Writer
The Literacy Volunteers of
Washington County face their
toughest subject yet: lack of
According to executive director
Linda Marinaccio, the program is
in danger of closing all together if
extra funding does not come
"We're in desperate need of
help," Marinaccio said.
A drop in community contribu-
tions resulted in a 65-percent
reduction in funding from United
Way of Northwest Florida, and
Wal-Mart has reduced its funding
by 50 percent.
Need for services by the volun-
teer organization has not been
reduced. In Washington County
alone, more than 28 percent of the
population is considered illiterate,
according to a literacy census study
conducted in 2002.
The LVWC, based at the Wash-
ington Holmes County Technical
Center in Chipley, provides free
lessons for basic reading, pre-

Mary Wheeler shows off the certificate she earned through the Washington County Literacy
Program at Country Oaks. With her are some of the volunteers.

GED, driver's license and basic
computer skills. Recently, they
added a new branch in Caryville to
their other locations in Country
Oaks, Greenhead and Vernon.
The LVWC tutors more than

150 students, 75 percent with
learning disabilities, with a staff of
40 volunteers, a part-time office
manager and Marinaccio.
"We provide these services for
those who need it and might not

have the means necessary to
obtain it," Marinaccio said. She
estimates the cost per student to be
around $50 each, including books,
study guides and other materials.
"Being illiterate is more than an

inability to read," Marinaccio said.
"It's also having difficulty under-
standing what you're reading,
such as instructions on a medicine
bottle, your child's homework
assignment or even computer
How much longer the LVWC
will be able to operate is uncertain.
"I'm so very concerned that
we may have to close our doors,
and I desperately don't want to,"
Marinaccio said. "I'll fight as much
as I have to and stay as long as
I can, even if it means volunteering
a large number of hours myself,
but I'm still only one person, and
we need as much help as we can
Donations are needed, but
Marinaccio said volunteer tutors
also are important.
"It's more than worthwhile,
and it is the best feeling in the
world. It's amazing to see those
who've benefited from the pro-
gram come back to help others,"
she said.

program and assistance is available

WHTC graduates the 358th CVD Class

Washington-Holmes Technical College's
358th Commercial Vehicle Driving class
graduated May 2. The graduates shared
their stories about decisions that led them
to WHTC and new careers in truck driving.
Abdullah Muhammad, from
Blountstown, was formerly a boat
builder but his company had to cut back
operations after the hurricane. Abdullah
had two job offers on his graduation day.
Shawn Burkette was self-employed in
Milton. Fourteen years ago he attended a
two-week truck driving program but never
felt competent to get on the road. He
"finally had the courage to come back to
truck driving" and is excited and confident
that he has mastered all the competencies.
He will be driving with U.S. Express.
Kimberly Burns was a cashier from
Greenwood. Kimberly told us, "the
cashier's job didn't pay enough and my
fiance is a truck driver. I'll begin my
on-road training with him and we'll

team drive for Wiley Sanders."
Chris Epeley is from Bonifay. He sur-
veyed for a local business but when the
economy slowed down, he was laid off. "My
brothers took this program years ago and
are still driving. Truck driving is in my fam-
ily. My cousin is also a driver so I'll team up
with him working for Wiley Sanders.
Jimmy Jones retired after 25 years in
the Air Force as a communications elec-
tronics engineer. "I always wanted to drive
truck since I was a kid. I love all types of
transportation and wanted to see the
world from a truck. My certification gives
me another opportunity in life." Jimmy is
waiting for his position in a non-smoking
cab with Wiley-Sanders. "I looked at a
couple 2-3 programs elsewhere before
deciding on WHTC. I'm so glad I came
here; I can't imagine learning everything
we did in three weeks. This is a top-notch
program and the instructors have great
gobs of patience!"

A letter reveals a true love story

I have read many e-mails, letters and
papers handed to me that illustrate
wonderful spiritual meanings and great
insight to a Christian's life. With most, I
read them, and from time to time, my
eyes might water or tear up, but with the
following illustration, it is quite differ-
ent. The first time I read it, I
practically bawled my eyes out,
and still to this day, I have a hard
time reading it without tears
coming to my eyes.
It represents so many aspects
of a Christian's life and the way
so many deal with things in their Ltf
life. It truly represents the love Le.
our God has for us and how Liht
truly grateful we should be. I do es
not know who wrote this, but I
am so thankful they did.
One day, I woke early in the morning
to watch the sunrise. Ah, the beauty of
God's creation is beyond description.
As I watched, I praised God for His
beautiful work. As I sat there, I felt the
Lord's presence with me. He asked me,
"Do you love me?"
I answered, "Of course, God! You
are my Lord and Savior!"
Then He asked, "If you were physi-
cally handicapped, would you still love
I was perplexed. I looked down at my
arms, legs and the rest of my body and
wondered how many things I wouldn't
be able to do, the things that I took for
granted. And I answered, "It would be
tough Lord, but I would still love you."
Then the Lord said, "If you were
blind, would you still love my creation?"
How could I love something without
being able to see it? Then I thought of
all the blind people in the world and
how many of them still loved God and
his creation. So I answered, "It's hard to
think of it, but I would still love you."
The Lord then asked me, "If you
were deaf, would you still listen to my
word?" How could I listen to anything
being deaf? Then I understood. Listen-
ing to God's word is not merely using
our ears, but our hearts. I answered, "It


would be tough, but I would still listen to
your word."
The Lord then asked, "If you were
mute, would you still praise my name?"
How could I praise without a voice?
Then it occurred to me: God wants us to
sing from our very heart and soul. It
never matters what we sound.
like. And praising God is not
always with a song, but when we
are persecuted, we give God
praise with our words of thanks.
So, I answered, "Though I
could not physically sing, I
O r would praise Your Name.
S And the Lord asked, "Do
Shine you really love me?"
Webb With courage and a strong
conviction, I answered boldly,
"Yes Lord! I love you because you are
the one and true God!"
I thought I had answered well, but ...
God asked, "Then why do you sin?"
I answered, "Because I am only
human. I am not perfect."
"Then why in times of peace do you
stray the furthest? Why only in times of
trouble do you pray the earnest?" No
answers. Only tears. The Lord contin-
ued: "Why only sing at fellowships and
retreats? Why seek me only in times of
worship? Why ask things so selfishly?
Why ask things so unfaithfully?" The
tears continued to roll down my cheeks.
"Why are you ashamed of me? Why
are you not spreading the good news?
Why in times of persecution, you cry to
others when I offer my shoulder to cry
on? Why make excuses when I give you
opportunities to serve in my name?" I
tried to answer, but there was no answer
to give. "You are blessed with life. I
made you not to throw this gift away. I
have blessed you with talents to serve
me, but you continue to turn away. I
have revealed My Word to you, but you
do not gain in knowledge. I have spoken
to you but your ears were closed. I have
shown my blessings to you, but your
eyes were turned away. I have sent you
servants, but you sat idly by as they were
pushed away. I have heard your prayers

and I have answered them all."
"Do you truly loveme?"
I could not answer. How could I? I
was embarrassed beyond belief. I had
no excuse. What could I say to this?
When my heart had cried out and the
tears flowed, I said, "Please forgive me
Lord. I am unworthy to be your child."
The Lord answered, "That is my
grace, my child." I asked, "Then why do
you continue to forgive me? Why do
you love me so?" The Lord answered,
"Because you are my creation. You are
my child. I will never abandon you.
When you cry, I will have compassion
and cry with you. When you shout with
joy, I will laugh with you. When you are
down, I will encourage you. When you
fall, I will raise you up. When you are
tired, I will carry you. I will be with you
till the end of days, and I will love you
Never had I cried so hard before.
How could I have been so cold? How
could I have hurt God as I had done? I
asked God, "How much do you love
me? "The Lord stretched out his arms,
and I saw his nail-pierced hands. I
bowed down at the feet of Christ, my
Savior and for the first time, I truly
Don't waste any more time. Take
time right now and truly pray. Pray with
sincerity of heart, with the faith that
God will answer our prayers, and with
the humility of a child filled with sin.
God has blessed each of us with so
much, and we should be thanking him
daily in prayer. Am I worthy to be called
his child? No! Am I thankful to be
called his child? Yes!
"I have been crucified with Christ;
and it is no longer I who live, but Christ
lives in me; and the life which I now live
in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of
God, who loved me and gave himself"
(Galatians 2:20).

America chooses

against Christ

As Christians in Amer-
ica, we have become
spoiled. We have heard of
Christians being perse-
cuted around the world for
their faith for more than
2,000 years, but we have
always felt safe. After all,
this is America,
where Christians
have fought and
even given their
lives so all people
could have the
freedom to wor- "
ship. Then there's
the great Consti- -
tution our found- Fr 0
ing Fathers wrote, He
which protected Ti
the church.
Because of this,
we have always felt that
America was a Christian
nation. But apparently,
our assumptions are now
The American Family
Association reported in
their April 21 issue that
John Freshwater, who is a
school teacher not in
China, but in Mt. Vernon,
Ohio, was told by the
school leaders that he
must put his Bible out of
sight when students are in
the room. At last report,
Mr. Freshwater has
refused to remove his
Bible as it has been on his
desk for 18 years. Also not
in some foreign commu-
nist country, but in the
Wisconsin's Tomah Area
School District, a teacher
refused to give a student,
who is only being identi-
fied as A.T, a grade on an
art project because his
work included "John 3:16"
as well as "a sign of love."
However, Buddha, Hindu
and sorcerers are consid-
ered "approved" forms of
art by the school.
Another outrageous
form of persecution took
place not in Iran but at the
East Brunswick High
School in New Jersey,
where officials and a
three-judge panel told
football coach Marcus
Borden he cannot kneel
and bow his head while
members of his team have
a student-led pre-game
prayer. Borden has
coached in that school for
two decades and has been
fighting the school's policy
for three years. Borden
and his attorneys vow to
appeal this ruling all the
way to the U.S. Supreme
Court. Borden said he
believes "no school is juisti-
fled in policing its employ-
ees' thoughts and penaliz-
ing them based on what
they think is going on in
their heads. What next?
Will they bar coaches from
silently moving their lips if
others think it is a
On the other hand, The
Baptist Press reports "that
taxpayers are funding an
Islamic public school in
Minnesota even in a cul-
ture that would not toler-
ate the funding of a Chris-
tian school." I also heard
on the radio there is
another public school that
keeps the buses from run- .
ning until an hour after
school so the students can
take a class on the Koran.
Here in Holmes County
and across America, stu-
dents now can wear what I
refer to as anti-Christian
and hate-Christian T-shirts
and other paraphernalia
to school, as U.S. District
Judge Richard Smoak
ruled that Heather Gill-
man, a junior at Ponce de
Leon High School, had
had her "free speech"
rights taken away from her




because she was not
allowed to wear T-shirts
that promote homosexual-
ity. But now, because of
Judge Smoak's ruling,
Gillman and anyone else
can wear "symbols," "slo-
gans" and "phrases" that
promote their
immoral sexual
They know and
we know that
this is not about
S "free speech"
but an opportu-
nity to show
S their disap-
art proval of Chris-
tianity. They
know that what
they are wearing
is a slap in the face of all
born again Christians
because we try to live our
lives directed by the truth
as proclaimed in the Bible,
which proclaims that any
sexual activity outside the
marriage vows is a sin and
that marriage is to be
between one man and one
woman for life, no matter
what the courts in Califor-
nia or elsewhere might say
on this issue (Genesis 19;
Romans 1:18-21).
Speaking of California,
it seems to me that the
State of California basi-
cally has proclaimed it is
now an anti-Christian
state and has asked all
Christians, and for the
most part, all religious
people, to leave their state,
because they do not desire
the truth but fall to the
desires of lust, which
always brings destruction.
Though America seems
to have chosen to be
against Christianity, I
choose to pray for all
Americans and love them
through the love, which
Christ has placed in my
heart for all mankind. It
might seem no matter
what I do from this point
on that America has and
will continue to persecute
Christians. It awakens me
to the fact that the Bible,
his holy word, is being ful-
filled right before my eyes
as 2 Timothy 3:1-7 tells us
"that in the last days per-
ilous times will come: For
men will be lovers of
themselves, lovers of
money, boasters, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient
to parents, unthankful,
unholy, unloving, unfor-
giving, slanderers, without
self-control, brutal, despis-
ers of good, traitors, head-
strong, haughty, lovers of
pleasure rather than lovers
of God, having a form of
godliness but denying its
power. And from such
people turn away! For of
this sort are those who
creep into households and
make captives of gullible
women loaded down with
sins, led away by various
lusts, always learning and
never able to come to the
knowledge of the truth"
Christ will soon return
for His bride. Hallelujah!!
At that moment, they will
have what they want, an
America without Christ or
His disciples (1 Corinthi-
ans 15:51-58; 1 Thessalo-
nians 4:13-18).

The Ultimate Sacrifice

SMemorial. Day is,'a special holiday set aside to honor
-and remember those whd gave their lives for their country.
Countless men and women
throughout the years have
o died to protect our country
and to preserve our way
S of life. We should always
be grateful to those who
made the ultimate sacrifice,
and we should be thankful
to God that we live as free
people. Certainly, we live in
the greatest country in the
world. Even though we have
S o our share of problems, many
f people from all over the
1 L world immigrate here every
day.God has blessed America
and will continue to do so, as
long as we remember that our Heavenly Father is our sustaining
source.Two thousand years ago our Lord Jesus Christ made His
ultimate sacrifice for the whole world, and by His dying on the
cross we can obtain peace, joy and everlasting life. God bless
America is not only a statement, it is a prayer.

Greater love hath no man
than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
