:J14 MONDAY, APRIL 16. 2001 THE SAUNA JOURNAL Return / Town glad to have crew home FROM'PAGE A1 Pilot Shane Osborn said Lt. Vignery joined him at the controls to keep the wings level on the violently shaking plane. Vignery then began making Mayday calls "because I thought we were going in the water," Osborn told ABC's "This Week with Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts." Answered prayers Congregations all over this town of 21,000 outside the Navy base 50 miles north-of Seattle celebrated the return of the crew they call.the Whidbey 24. • A message written in soap on a van's windows in the Family Bible Church parking lot said "24 answered prayers." "We are jnost of all happy because of the return of the 24 crew members," the Rev. John O'Leary told a crowd of hundreds, which overflowed from St. Augustine Catholic Church on a sunny spring day On Saturday, a military passenger jet brought the 21 men and three women back to their base at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station after 11 days on Hainan .island, where their surveillance plane was forced to land after a collision with a Chinese fighter jet. They were released after diplomatic talks. "God has cared for them, watched over them. We are particularly happy because Lt. Richard Payne is with us again," O'Leary said. . Payne shook hands with well- wishers as he stood quietly along the wall with his mother, Brenda Payne, and other family members. "We're just glad he's home," Brenda Payne said. "The whole Easter season is just a time for rejoicing," said lay Eucharistic minister Jane Hitter. "When they come home to be with their families, it's even more so." . A big sign outside Southern Baptist Church proclaimed, "Praise God They're Back." Everyone at the ladies' Bible study group, which met before Easter services, talked about the welcome-home celebration that drew 7,000 people to a base hangar. "To have them home for Easter was incredible," said Sharon Cohen, a member whose husband is retired from the military At First United Methodist Church, where the church bell was rung 24 times every day last week for the 24 crew members, the Rev. David Lura gave thanks for their return. Sunday also marked the first day of up to a month of time off for the crew members. But Osborn, the pilot who safely landed the crippled EP- 3E surveillance plane, told ABC News he just wanted to "take a few days off, go visit home, and get back up flying." The crew had left Honolulu after 26 hours of meetings with investigators about the April 1 collision and the $80 million EP-3E plane they left behind on Hainan. iHotel / New site brings more diners FROM PAGE A1 business increased during the first nine months after the reailiurant reopened on May 4, 2000, Martin said. The restaurant's trade area doubled to about 180,000 people living in Manhattan, Junction City, Topeka and Clay Center, just a few of the close cities. . "Our summer was awesome," 3je said. "We've had a lot of peo- 3)le come in .wondering if it's ;still the same as it was." - The restaurant continues to have just one choice on the menu: the chicken dinner with mashed potiatoes and gravy, cream-style corn and biscuits. Martin's grandmother, Helen Martin, began serving the meal in 1915. The restaurant increased in size from 6,000 to 16,000 square feet, but most of that space isn't in the dining areas. Some • of it is used for storage, and the kitchen is four times larger than the one in Brookville. Martin re-created the original facade of the Brookville Hotel and many of the original tables, chairs and light fixtures were brought from the old location. Upstairs, Martin had the old hotel's guest rooms reproduced and brought over the antique furniture that had occupied the former facility The Brookville Hotel stopped taking overnight guests in 1972. New to the Abilene restaurant is a Spirit of Kansas dining room, with murals depicting the Old West, and Brandy's Opera House, in memory of the couple's deceased daughter.
