wright Debra

the stories and In & i

universal themes such as fam-

Audiences, young and old, love
the show's "down home" South-
ern brand of humor, while crit-
ics have praised the show for not
shying away from darker themes
such as racism and domestic vio-
lence.
"Swamp Gravy" has also be-
come famous for its music-a
unique blend of traditional fa-
vorites and original new songs
especially written aor each snow

sical score features uniquely
Southern musical influences,
such as Gospel, Negro Spiritu-
als, Blue Grass, Folk,. Country,
Blues and Jazz.
The show's cast of over 80 is
made up of volunteers from the
local communities, acting under
the direction of theatrical pro-
fessional directors, musicians,,


choreographers, lighting design-
ers, and stage managers who
are brought in from across the
United States. Since "Swamp
Gravy" features stories from lo-

Rep. David Coley credits Liberty County for


"always'
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor.
"I think you're going to see
some good things in Liberty
.-:.County and this is just the be-
ginning." State Represe'it tive
David Coley told thoseygath-
ered for Monday night's Liberty
County Chamber of Commerce
banquet.
Following Ronnie Paul of
Georgia-Pacific (GP) at the po-
dium, Coley noted that the suc-
cess of establishing the oriented-
strand board plant %ill attract
other economic opportunities to
the area. "It just always seems to
follow that when you have news
like the GP plant coming here,
so*thiAg else w ill follow." '
Noting that Liberty County Hias
had its problems over the years
w ith area industries closing,
logging problems and conflicts
due to the fact that most of the
area is federal -maintained na-
tional forestland he credited
the people of the conummnunity by
pointing out, "You always hung
in there and always fought."
The Liberty County Chamber
of Commerce, he said, "has al-
ways been a driving force." Of
the nine counties in his legislative
district. "I can tell you that there's
not but a handful w ith the tenacity
and the drive that Liberty County
has and eventually. it pays off."


fighting" for economic development


"People from Tallahassee and throughout
the state are looking over here at Liberty
County and recognizing what you're doing.
It's just going to be a matter of time before
they start spending time over here wanting
to know,'Hey, what are they doing over in [i
Liberty County that's so successful?'" He
quickly added, "And unless it's one of my
nine counties, I hope you don't tell them!"


Coley pointed out how money-
turns over four times for each
dollar generated. "That one dol-
lar (in payroll) will generate four
times over-in Liberty County
- that benefits gas stations, that
benefits drug stores, that benefits
doctor's office, that benefits auto
parts stores."
As a member of the Florida


Legislature, he said he hopes to
develop policies in the state to
make it easier for rural counties
to generate industrial prospects
like Georgia-Pacific. "I think
what amazes me and pleases me
more than anything else is GP's
commitment. Yes. the\ took
some state dollars and took some
state assistance, but they didn't


ask for it. This is something the
state offered."
He continued, saying, "What I
see a lot-of times is when indus-
tries come in, they want to take
whatever they can get and then
see whether the\ want to come.
You gu\ s sought out GP. they
came and looked and they w anted
to come to Liberrt County. You


guys opened your arms wide and
they came. They didn't come
with any false pretenses."
He said he looks forward to
finding ways to expedite pro-
cesses and find grants and state
resources for rural counties that
have not been previously avail-
able. While Coley's looking for
ways to help small counties like
Liberty, he commented that larger
communities are starting to look
our way.
"People from Tallahassee and
throughout the state are looking
over here at Liberty County and
recognizing what you're doing.
It's just going to be a matter of
time before they start spending
time over here wanting to know,
"Hey, what are they doing over
in Liberty County that's so suc-
cessful?'" He quickly added,
"And unless it's one of my nine
counties, I hope you don't tell
them!"
Before concluding his com-
ments for the evening, Coley
addressed reports of his health
problems following his recent di-
agnosis of liver cancer. "You can
see that I am here. I am speaking
and I am breathing. I appreciate
your prayers and look for" ard to
serving two \ears in the House
w ith you guys."

center was sealed over a handshake.
He shuns the traditional computer
communications and e'en written
correspondence. "I don't have e-mail
and I don't even send letters. But I
\ ill call you and talk to you and I
can tell if you mean %%hat you say."
That philosophy w as reinforced w hen
a member of his accounting office
returned after three days off to find
280 e-mails waiting g in her computer.
'How\ in the world are you going to
do an. thing if you ha\ e to read all of
those'?" he asked her.
The plant is expected to start up in

in, the rail compressors up and the
unloading machine ready to unload
logs." Paul said. He said sometime
after the first 60-to-90 da. s of opera-
tion, the plant will hold a grand open-
ing. Until then, "We'd appreciate
it if you don't want a tour," he said.
drawing laughs from the audience.
"It's going to be like moving in a
house. We're just going to have our
hands full."
He expects the plant to employ
140 people and take in 160 loads of
logs a day. He said the facility will
be 1.560 feet long b. 200 feet wide.
All the offices % ill be built from GP
products. "We've tried to be a good
citizen everywhere we've been and-
that's why I love the company." he
said.
At the end of his talk, Paul was
presented w ith the \ ery first company
jacket issued for the Hosford OSB
plant.

Pioneer Settlement


revives a tradition


Folks at the Panhandle
Pioneer Settlement in
Blountstown revived a
tradition few today even
know about by holding a
hog slaughter Saturday.
The Jan. 15 event brought
back memories for some
and showed the younger
generation exactly what
their grandparents did on
the coldest day of the year.
Years ago, every farm
held a "hog killing." Many
times neighbors would come
together to help, since this
was not a one man job. Most
people enjoyed these days,
since the slaughter meant
fresh meat for the family
when all they normally had
was salted or smoked.
After the hog was killed,
the head was boiled for
hog head cheese, skin was
used to make cracklings,
the muscle from the thighs
was used to make smoked
ham and thq rest was used
to make pork chops and
sausage. Even the organs of
the hog were used to make
half let stew. The brains were
used to scramble eggs with.
Nothing went to waste.
The Pioneer Settlement
also sold plates so visitors

Dean of Enrollment Dr. Jayne
Roberts said the increase in en-
rollment is indicative of the
greater emphasis students are
placing on a quality education
and of the college's ability to of-
fer those students a challenging,
innovative education.
"It appears that students are
looking for the total package-
outstanding programs, services
to support students as they pur-
sue their degrees, student orga-
nizations that offer leadership
opportunities, and most of all,
competent faculty and staff who
are student-oriented and who
understand that learning and
student development take place
both inside and outside of the
classroom setting," said Rob-
erts.
College officials cite the im-
pact of adding four-year degrees
to the curriculum as contributing


to the positive enrollment trend.
The 57-year old institution now
awards B.S. degrees in Second-
ary Education with majors in
Mathematics and Science. The
first class of Bachelor's degree
students will graduate this sum-
mer.
Other factors which have con-
tributed to Chipola's growth in
recent years include: Increased
retention efforts, the presence of
university programs on campus
and the offer of in-state tuition
for Alabama and Georgia resi-
dents.
Students- may continue to
register for many of Chipola's
Workforce Development pro-
grams and Continuing Educa-
tion courses throughout the se-
mester.

the Chipola Admissions and Re-
cords Office at (850) 718-2211.

Reading your phone bill isn't what it used to be What once required a brief glance now demands a
concerted effort to make sure everything is where it should be the numbers add up and nothing is
added on that doesn't belong What follows is a brief guide to making sense out of your monthly
phone bill. A more detailed brochure, called "Navigating Your Phone Bill," can be downloaded from
the PSC's website (www floridapsc comic
A residential phone bill has three components:
local service charges, long distance service charges and taxes.


The local service portion may include some
or all of the following:

FCC Local Number'Portability Line Charge
(also known as a Number Portability Surcharge
or Service Provider Number Portability Fee.):
Local phone companies were permitted but not
required, to assess a fee to cover the costs
associated with allowing consumers to retain
their phone number when switching carriers The
right to charge the fee was time-limited by the
Federal Communications Commission and
some consumers have seen this charge
disappear from their bills

Residential Line Charge: This is the monthly
local service charge. In most cases it is a flat-
rate fee, although sometimes it may appear as a
flat rate plus a usage charge. This is what the
local phone company is paid for providing
service.

Emergency 911 Charge: This fee is assessed
and paid to the city or county providing the
consumer with emergency 911 service.

FCC Network Access Charge (sometimes
called a Subscriber Line Charge or an Interstate
Access Surcharge): The FCC allows local phone
companies to be compensated for the use of their
local network in completing long distance calls
This fee goes to the local companies, not to the
FCC.

Telecommunications Access System Act
Surcharge: This fee is used to provide
telecommunications devices and relay services
for Florida residents with hearing or speech
impairments. By law, the money collected from
this fee goes to a non-profit corporation
established by la.w to provide devices and
services to qualified individuals.

Universal Service Fund Charge: A fee used
to insure affordable access to the telecommuni-
cations network for low-income consumers or
those who live in areas where the cost of
providing service is high Also used to provide
telecommunications access to schools and
libraries and advanced services for rural health
,. .ae providers,. ........ .. ..
0 0 .L L .i l l l .i t i


2 Consumers may receive a separate bill from
their long distance provider or may have
it included with their monthly local bill In either
case, a long distance bill will normally include
the following

Long Distance Charges: Billing statements
usually itemize calls including date placed
number called and the duration of the call.

Universal Service Fund Charge: Interstate
carriers are required to contribute to the federal
universal service fund' as are local service
providers The FCC allows interstate carriers to
pass along this charge to consumers but does
not require them to do so

Minimum Usage Charge: Some carriers charge
customers a minimum monthly fee for long
distance service, regardless of whether the
customer actually makes calls.

Calling Plan Charges: Some consumers
subscribe to calling plans that provide a range of
options that meet specific customer demands.
These plans vary widely in terms of what is
offered and prices range from a few dollars per
month to $25 a month

S The third aspect of a monthly phone bill is
taxes. Essentially. there are two kinds
of taxes levied on a phone bill, federal and state.
Congress. not the FCC, imposes a three percent
tax on all telecommunications services, including
local, interstate and wireless. The state adds
what is called a "Communications Service Tax '
There are two parts to the state tax' the "Local
Communications Services Tax," which are city
or local taxes, (formerly called "franchise fees"),
and a "State Communications Services Tax,"
(which used to be called a "Gross Receipts Tax )

LIAR, LUNATIC
OR LORD
Text: John 15:22-25
Is Jesus a liar, a lunatic, or Lord?
C.S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity,
"A man who was merely a man and said
the sort of things Jesus said wouldn't be
a great moral teacher. He would either
be a lunatic on the leyel with a man.
who says he's a poached egg-or else he
would be the devil of, hell; you must take
your choice. Either this was, and is,.the
Son of God, or else a mad man or some-
thing worse. You can shut Him up for a
demon, or you can fall at His feet and
call Him Lord and God.". .
What do you believe about Jesus?
The Pharisees of Jesus' day accused
Him of being the son of Satan! They
said this because He was driving de-
mons out I,.-.r,.-mr.id .,I.
They accused Him of blasphemy

were forgiven cl tiig un,- .t-'i. ifor-

Jesus was picking grain in'the field
and eating it. He was accused of break-
ing the Sabbath. Jesus ci:nic' eto be
"greater than the temple" and "Lord of

the sky with great glory.
To prove it, Jesus healed the sick;,
raised the dead, made the lame walk,

If I told you that there is a
native tree with an almost per-
fect natural branching habit,
is adapted to most local soil
types, provides excellent early
fall color and is wind tolerant,
would you be interested? I
thought so.
It goes by several common
names including blackgum,
sour gum and tupelo. One area
thought so much of this tree that
in 1870 their city was named
for .it. It is now Tupelo, Mfissis-
sippi and is perhaps the fastest
growing city in the state.
Blackgum belongs to the
Genus Nyssa, and there are
three species and two varieties
that are native to the local area.
Anyone interested in establish-
ing a blackgum should choose
the species that is best adapted
to a particular situation. N% ssa
sylvatica. know n as blackgum.
sourgum and pepperidge reach-
es an adult size of 50 to 80 feet
in height and is adapted to the
widest range of soil types from
%wetlands to uplands.
There are many morphologi-
cal variations of Nyssa sylvati-
ca. Slight differences are seen
in leaf size and growth habit
when comparing those that
grow on dry, upland locations


by Daniel E.
Mullins,
Extension
Horticultural
Agent, Santa
Rosa County


as compared to those growing
on slopes and in bottomlands.
It is therefore important to ob-
tain trees from local stock when
possible.
Nyssa aquatica, or the wa-
ter tupelo is found growing
naturally in wet areas around
ponds, swamps and in flood
plains. The trunk has a swollen,
tapered base similar to those
of bald and pond cN press and
is often seen grow ing among
these two species. The leaves
and dark purple fruit of twaier
tupelo are much larger than
those of the upland species.
It is surprising that black-
gum is such a little used land-
scape tree. The sylvatica spe-
cies is commonly found on
many state's Extension recom-
mended landscape tree lists.
These recommendations often
include positive comments
about blackgum. According to

location
"Native Trees. for North
Florida," Nyssa sylvatica can
be used for shade, residential,
park and boulevard planting. It
has good fall color and is best
suited for wet sites.
Though blackgum is an ex-
cellent landscape plant, finding
nursery grown trees for plant- .
ing might not be easy.- Since
this species is not well known,
there has been little demand for
it locally. .Check local nurser-
ies and garden centers first and
if none are found, ask your re-
tailer to order for you.
Blackgum trivia: Early
Americans made use of black-
gum twigs as toothbrushes.
Small diameter- branches from
the past season's growth, were ji
,cut into six. inch long pieceSolq
and the tips were crushed or
chewed. The fibers separat-
ed evenly and were durable
enough for this use.
Southern blackgum trivia:
Blackgum twigs have also been
used by snuff dippers over the
past two centuries. Fresh twigs
were prepared as needed by
crushing or chewing the tips.
Individual twigs were then.
moistened and dipped into the
snuff. Many dippers kept the
tip of the twig in their mouth.
Every dipper knew where the
nearest blackgum tree was lo-
cated and youngsters were rou-
tfinelh sent to bring somedrfh'oY
t wig s when the supply ran low.
.Question of the 1Week: I
would like to level my' yard
by adding a thin layer of soil.
When is the best time to do
this ?
Answer: This procedure is
known as topdressing. April is
usually the best time to do this.
That time of year generally co-
incides with the spring flush
of growth and, the grass will
be more able to quickly grow
through the layer of new soil
than during other-seasons. Use
a clean, weed free sandy based
material and limit the depth of
topdressing to cio. more than.
one-half inch.' Where mnore:-iSiKo
needed, it would be best to add
soil in stages, allowing time
for the grass to grow through
the previous application before
adding soil again.
