Robert Lee McKenzie

Robert Lee McKenzie was an entrepreneur, a real estate developer, a founder and first mayor of Panama City, an instrumental figure in the early history of Bob Jones University. McKenzie was reared on a farm in Macon County, Georgia. Following graduation from high school, he operated a general store. In 1902 McKenzie moved to the Florida Panhandle and became joint owner of a naval stores business with 75 employees. McKenzie was the first in the area to use the innovative and less wasteful “turpentine cup” method for collecting pine tree resin. In 1904 McKenzie purchased waterfront property on St. Andrews Bay and cooperated with other businessmen in developing the town that they called Panama City with the aspiration that it become a port of entry for goods arriving via the planned Panama Canal. After Panama City was incorporated in 1909, McKenzie was elected the first mayor, he served two terms as a representative from Washington County in the Florida House of Representatives. In 1913, McKenzie succeeded in his efforts to have Panama City named the seat of Bay County, which he had helped to create.

During World War II, McKenzie served as Chairman of the Bay County Chapter of the Red Cross and as a member of the Selective Service Board. McKenzie met Methodist evangelist Bob Jones when he conducted several tent-meeting campaigns in Panama City during the early 1920s. In the fall of 1925, after Jones decided to start a college in the area, he asked McKenzie for suggestions about possible locations and chose a 2,500-acre peninsula on the bay, eight miles from Panama City and two miles from the hamlet of Lynn Haven; the Bob Jones College charter was signed in the office at his home. After the college opened in 1927, McKenzie served on the Executive Board for the remainder of his life; the current Bob Jones University Dining Common is named “Dixon-McKenzie” in honor of McKenzie, his wife, his wife’s sister, Mary Dixon, all of whom were financial supporters of the school. Bob Jones College was relocated from Florida first to Cleveland, in 1947 to Greenville, South Carolina, where it was renamed Bob Jones University.

R. L. McKenzie was a charter member of the First Baptist Church of Panama City and transferred his membership to the Cove Baptist Church. In 1912, McKenzie married Belle Booth, the Panama City postmistress, who had built a house at 17 E. Third Street after the death of her husband, Dr. Charles Booth. Following Belle’s death, McKenzie married Blandford Dixon, a schoolteacher twenty-four years his junior. In 1925 McKenzie enlarged the house, many business and municipal meetings were held there. In 1964, Panama City recognized McKenzie’s service to the community by renaming its city park, McKenzie Park. In 1986, his house, across from the park, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places

Frank Hayostek

Frank Hayostek was an American veteran of World War II who gained international notoriety for throwing a message in an asprin bottle that traveled all the way from the New York harbor to Dingle Ireland. The event became a media circus on both sides of the Atlantic. On Christmas, 1945, Medical Corpsman Frank Hayostek returned by sea from military duty in France. Feeling lonesome, he stuffed a note into an aspirin bottle, corked it and tossed it over the side of the SS James Ford Rhodes; the note read: "Dear Finder, I am an American soldier... 21 years old... just a plain American of no wealth, but just enough to get along with. This is my third Christmas from home... God bless you." Eight months Hayostek received a response from Breda O'Sullivan, 18-year-old resident of Lispole. The pair became pen pals and over the course of the next seven years they exchanged 70 letters. In the summer of 1952 Hayostek traveled to County Kerry to meet O'Sullivan, his two-week stay was shadowed by a flock of reporters and photographers who "tried to fan the romance into flame."

The publicity was too much for the shy O'Sullivan who would describe the notoriety as "gruelling" and Hayostek returned to Pennsylvania without her. In 1958 he had a son named Terry Francis Hayostek; the following year he received his last letter from Breda. His wife died in 1965 from cancer; the Tribune Democrat rekindled the story in 2004. Frank Hayostek died on November 15, 2009 at the age of 85. In 2012 to coincide with the 60th anniversary of Frank's trip to Ireland, RTÉ Radio announced it was making a documentary titled'Message in a Bottle' for its award-winning'Doc on One' series, it was revealed on this programme that Frank had told Breda he had been married and had the marriage annulled. Breda spurned him as she held strong Catholic views on marriage

B.U.G. Mafia

B. U. G. Mafia, is a Romanian hip hop group from Pantelimon, Bucharest regarded as one of the seminal acts of gangsta rap in Romania. Founded in 1993 as Black Underground, its original lineup consisted of Vlad "Tataee" Irimia, Dragoș "Caddillac" Vlad-Neagu and two other members, D. D. and Mr. Nobody, who, by the end of the year, had departed from the group. Irimia and Vlad-Neagu, who were still teenage high school students at the time, had been working on amateur solo recordings and had little professional prospects on their own prior to their encounter; the group performed as a duo throughout Bucharest at local highschool proms and parties while considering their options for professional careers in music and, following a string of unsuccessful attempts at promoting their music in English, they recruited Alin "Uzzi" Demeter in 1995 and transitioned to writing in Romanian. Throughout the years, the group endured a long-standing controversy due to the explicit and confrontational nature of their lyrics.

Focusing on subjects such as the post-communist Romanian political class and crime in Romania's communist-built housing projects or their recurring hostility towards Romanian Police, they were subsequently banned from many mainstream T. V. and radio stations in Romania and at times prevented from touring, spending a night in police custody after their first concert in Drobeta-Turnu Severin in 1997. Although controversial in their incipient years, their lyricism has been praised by a number of literary figures, such as Emil Brumaru and Mircea Cărtărescu. Despite being independently produced on a modest budget over just a few months in 1995, their debut album Mafia signified the birth of Romanian gangsta rap and established them on the fledgling hip hop scene emerging at the time in Romania, they have been estimated to have sold over 1,150,000 records. The group was founded in late 1993 when Pantelimon-based producer Vlad "Tataee" Irimia met Dragoş "Caddillac" Vlad-Neagu in Bucharest. Tataee, still in highschool, had been interested in becoming a professional musician since 1992, under the stage name Doom, he had produced an independent demo called "Straight Outta da Hell", stirring Caddillac's interest, as he was an amateur recording artist working under the name MC La Duc and had recorded a track titled "Apocalipse" on his own earlier in 1993.

As Romania had just overthrown its communist regime in the Romanian Revolution of 1989, western goods such as bootleg recordings of rap albums had started to flood the market in the market liberalization process that had begun. As Irimia and Vlad-Neagu learned that their musical tastes coincided, they decided on pursuing their careers as a group which they named Black Underground and abbreviated it to B. U. G. in late 1993. Two friends of Irimia and Vlad-Neagu, D. D. and Mr. Nobody joined but, due to a lack of interest and involvement, quit in early 1994, before the group recorded any songs. In March 1994, Irimia and Vlad-Neagu, working under the stage names Doom and Klax 187 reworked Irimia's demo recording into their debut single. Working at the Uniplus Radio studios in Bucharest, the two decided to keep the title "Straight Outta da Hell" and recorded the song with Florin "DJ Sensei" Cojocaru, an electronic musician and DJ who produced the record. "Straight Outta da Hell" premiered a month on Uniplus Radio during "YO!

Rap is Moving." A hip-hop oriented late night program hosted by Adrian Niculescu, a local radio personality and DJ. Shortly following their radio debut and Caddillac managed to book their first live appearance during a local hip hop concert in Bucharest, an experience they would both remember as unpleasant, but significantly influential in their choice of pursuing careers as professional musicians. Since hip hop was just emerging as a music genre in Romania in the early 1990s, studio time and stage performance opportunities were limited, so the group had to rely on the restricted prospects that presented themselves to record more songs, they began working with Romeo Vanica, a keyboardist, a member of the Romanian rock group Mondial, who agreed to allow them to use his studio equipment for music production in 1994 as they started creating more songs for an English debut album, tentatively titled Breakin' da Law. While involved in the production process and Vlad-Neagu became interested in music management and started exploring the local rap scene for other groups or solo artists to associate with in order to include a more diverse variety of artists on the album.

In December 1994, they met Alin Demeter, who at the time performed under the stage name Drama and was a member of Demonii, one of the few local rap acts who performed in Romanian. B. U. G. Invited both members of the group to enroll in the newly founded crew and, throughout the first half of 1995, Demonii became involved in a number of local live performances with Black Underground in Bucharest. Following Demeter's bandmate's decision to form another group besides Demonii, the two parted ways and Demeter joined Black Underground in May 1995. After the settlement, Vlad-Neagu and Demeter decided to scrap the recordings they had worked on and switch to performing and writing in Romanian in order to gain access to a larger potential fanbase in their native Romania; the group released Mafia in late 1995 and, since music distribution was nonexistent in Romania at the time, the album was only available for a short period of time in Bucharest, becoming valuable fan memorabilia over time. The album, recorded by Holograf keyboardist and producer Antonio "Tino" Furtună, contained 15 tracks, including collaborations with Pa
