Plan calls for prison crews to build new facility for county inmates

Liberty Commission gives OK to expand jail
.' bertt a msso s .K

by Teresa Eubanks, Joumal Editor
After hearing a presentation about
a "barebohe minimum" plan to
keep costs down while creating space for
24 inmates, the Liberty County Board
of County Commissioners voted unani-
mously for architect Chuck Purvis to
proceed with plans for a jail addition.
It's a short-term solution to a grow ing
problem, but previous requests for 2.5
million in funding to build a new jail to
house 100 inmates were not successful.
Clerk of Court Robert Hill said,
$200,000 has been approved for court-
house projects through a legislative ap-
propriation; half has been received and
the remaining $100,000 is expected "in a
matter of days." Of that figure, $175.000
.is slated for the addition. The remaining
$25,000 will be used for upgrades to the
courtroom, including the purchase of a-
new air conditioner, Hill said .
The two-story structure will be built
adjoining the current jail on the east side
of the.courthouse in Bristol. The newv
section ill ha% e a combined square foot-
age of 3,500.
"I've contacted a metal building outfit
that will give a proposal to the county

to provide the framing and. erection of
the basic frame and inmate labor can do
the rest," Purvis told. the board during a
special meeting last Thursday.
He said he had to change the format of
the addition to %work within ithe budget.
Only the top floor will be finished. "We
will not complete the downstairs. As we.
get closer to completion and have a grip
on what the hard costs are, we'll know
how riuch we can finish downstairs."
he said. --
"This is a basic shelter that meets
the code and your basic needs," he said.

The addition won't have steel plumbing
fixtures like most jails. "We may have to
get Sears & Roebuck plumbing fixtures,"
he said, adding, "If they tear up, we'll
have to go back and get another cheap
fixture until you're in shape where you
can replace that."
"It's a real, real tight budget," Purvis
told the board. He said he could bring it
in on budget if they followed his speci-
fications exactly, warning, "and I mean
not to change as much as a nail." Should-
changes be made,"costs will escalate and
blow this out of the water."

Purvis said the board would save
money by allowing .,him to supervise
construction instead of hiring a general
contractor and recommended that the use
of work crews from Liberty Correctional
Institution. "With the exception of maybe
heat and air and some of the electrical
work, 99% of it can be done by inmate
labor," Purvis said.
He urged the commission to, act
quickly if they wanted to build. "Every
day that you wait is costing you more
money. Prices are going out of sight," he
said, referring to the need for building
materials following last year's hurricanes
and the recent tsuamni.
"My recommendation is to get on with
business and let's get this thing on the
street as quickly as we can to capitalize
on any material savings. All we're going
to buy is materials," said Purvis. "The day
labor is going to be there."
After. a motion by Commissioner Jim
Johnson and a second by Commissioner
Albert Butcher, the board voted to con-
tinue with the project.
The jail currently has 18 beds. "Usu-

Ninth-grader dies of injuries

received in Jan. 14 collision

by Teresa Eubanks. Journal Editor
H is family called him "Scooter."
At school, he was known as
"Robert." To the guys in his Ranger
group, he was always "Beanboy," be-
cause of %what he could do with a can
of beans and a few extra ingredients
over a campfire.
Family and friends are mourning
the loss of 14-year-old Robert Darrel

on County Road 274 in Calhoun County sent Robert
to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. His father %\as
transported to Bay Medical Center, where he remains
in the surgical intensive care unit.
Robert was a ninth-grader at Liberty County High
School and liked helping out at his uncles' restaurant.
Doobie Brothers Barbecue. One of his teachers.
Mlandy Fowler. recalls how much he enjoyed work-
ing on a recent ceramics project in w which he made
several pieces of fruit for a display at the restaurant.
She called him "a really, really nice kid" who loved
to talk about hunting and often wore his camouflage
to class.
Academics weren't his strong sut but he found his
niche in the Rangers. a close-knit group of boys who
%went on frequent camping and fishing trips.
Dr. Darreyl Duggar. who oversees the Ranger
program, said Robert %\as "extremely shy" when he

first joined the group five years ago.
On their last Ranger outing, the teen
had made so much progress that he
w ent as a counselor to work with the
younger boys, Duggar said.
Head and shoulders above the other
kids, Robert used his large size to keep
the peace during Ranger gatherings.
"He \ as a gentle giant." Duggar said.
explaining, "He'd grab two boys that
were fighting and just pick "em up off
the ground." Duggar said the teen con-
stantly broke up fights between some

of the troubled and at-risk members of the group.
Robert won several rod and reels in Ranger fishing
tournaments and whenever they had a get-together.
he'd bring them to share w ith the other boys. Duggar
"He wanted to be a truck driver. He loved 18-
wheelers." Duggar said. When the Rangers were
on a trip and spotted a semi in the distance. Robert
amazed them by being able to readily identify exactly
\what kind of truck it was before they were even sure
it was an 18-wvheeler, he said.
The day before the accident, Duggar said Robert
came to talk % ith him and %% as excited about the pros-
pect of his parents \\ ho were divorced getting
back together.
Services are scheduled for Thursday. Jan. 27 at

GP donates products to help home

makeover show build sterile house

ATLANTA Two of G-P Gypsum's products were
featured on ABC television's hit show, Extreme Make-
over: Home Edition on Sunday night.
G-P Gypsum joined forces with Extreme Makeover:
Home Edition to help create a desperately needed, en-
tirely new home for the Sears family in Martinez, Ca-
Filmed and constructed in one week back in Decem-
ber 2004, the home's interior showcased G-P Gypsum's
innovative DensArmorTM Plus interior wall panels and
DensShield tile backer.
The Sears family was chosen because Jhyrve Sears,
the 17-year-old daughter of a single mother, has Krabbe
Disease, a rare degenerative disorder that affects the ner-
vous system. Jhyrve underwent extensive chemotherapy
and has been unable to return to her home because of the-
mold and allergens at her familY's house.
Jhyrve's doctors advised that the girl could not return
home until the family's home in California provided a
very sterile environment that is not easily susceptible to
mold growth and other assorted infestations. When Ex-
treme Makeover: Home Edition learned of her plight,
the show's design team and hundreds of workers put in
long da) s and nights.s so that Jhl1 rve Sears could finally
come home. And to meet doctor's ordersDednsArmor
Plus and DensShield from G-P Gypsum \\ere expressl-
specified for the project because of the products' supe-
rior mold and moisture-resistant qualities.
. "We were honored to be part of such a great endeavor
that helped such a deserving family." said Chris Beyer,
national marketing manager for Georgia-Pacific Build-
ing Products. "We believe in the work and message of
Extreme Makeo er: Home Editon, and t% e are proud to
support its nussion."
Hundreds of "extreme" team members lead by T\
Pennington worked together in less than a week to con-
struct a brand new home utilizing the most innovative

building products.
DensArmor Plus is the first and only completely pa-
perless interior wallboard, providing superior mold re-
sistance protection as a result of replacing the paper fac-
ings found on regular wallboard thereby eliminating
.one factor in the potential for mold development.
DensShield tile backer from G-P Gypsum is a pat-
ented, premium performance tile backer specifically en-
gineered to protect the tile installation, keep water out
of the wall cavity and require minimal work to install.
DerisShield helps prevent moisture migration, which can
cause mold and mildew growth and stud or fastener cor-
Georgia-Pacific'is building a plant in Liberty County,
which will produce oriented-strand board. They expect
the Hosford facility to be in operation by spring.

Well the party is over, the inauguration is all over and it's
back to business in Washington so President Bush left for

As I'm sure you saw, there were ten inaugural balls and
President Bush attended every one including the Texas.
National Guard Ball, but no one recalls seeing him there.

A lot of the country is cold right now. Some places it's 50 below.
You can tell it's cold out because today some of the red states
turned blue. CONAN O'BRIEN

Did you watch the inauguration? Isn't it nice to see a president
that puts his hands on a Bible instead of an intern again?

Thirty-two Chinese illegal immigrants were found in two cargo
containers in L.A, harbor. The illegal immigrants were in the two
containers during a two-week ocean journey from Hong Kong.
Apparently they booked this trip on Priceline.com. JAY LENO

Security was tight for the
inauguration in Washington,
D.C. The Bush twins were
stopped by margarita-sniffing

The inauguration was a very
emotional moment. Laura-
Bush had tears -in her eyes,
the president's mornm Barbara
Bush had tears, in her eyes...
John Kerry had tears in his
eyes. JAY LENO

I tell you what's really sad -
did you see Bill and Hillary at
the inauguration? Bill sitting
there wishing it was 1996 and
Hillary was there wishing it
was 2008. JAY LENO

Prince Harry has embarrassed
the royal fa(nily yet again. He
showed up at a party dressed
as the Jets kicker.

There is going to be a "Fear
Factor" theme park. All of the
food in the park will make you
violently ill. So really, how
different is that from any other
theme park?

President Bush told a reporter
That he saw his re-election
.- ,by the American people as
their approval to continue the
war in Iraq. You know, kind
of the same way Bill Clinton
felt his re-election meant to
the American people they
wanted him to keep cheating
on Hillary. -JAY LENO

a" Bush said being re-elected
d a doesn't have the same
pressures as the first term;
and he says he wants to enjoy
himself in the Oval Office this
time. Well, not as much as
Clinton enjoyed himself, but
he wants to. JAY LENO

To the people of Liberty County:
Thank you for your support in electing me as one of your
county commissioners. As your county commissioner for Dis-
trict I,. I gave all the. people one promise and that was I would
do the.best I could for all the folks of Liberty County. Folks,
Liberty County is the best place in the world to live. I have
tried a few other places, but I have always come home. When
you elected me as one of your commissioners, that was a
great honor for me. Liberty County is starting to grow as well
as the surrounding area. Mayb6 now our children won't have
to leave the area to.get a good paying job. Folks, I pray before
I go to our meetings that God would help me make the right
decision on the issues that come up for the people of Liberty
County. Folks, call me if there is anything that you want to
talk about or if you see a problem that needs to.be looked at.
I'll come and meet with you and we will see what we can do.
There will be things that we can do and some things we can't
do. Folks, let's work together to help Liberty County prosper.
I believe-we can do this if we all work together. My promise
stands, I will do the best I can for all of Liberty County. I will
listen to what you have to say and if it can't be fixed I'll do the
best I can to try and get the job done. Someone told me that
as long as you try, that is better than not trying at all.
Thank you again, folks of Liberty County. May God bless
each.one. f you and may He always guide us.
Albert Butcher,
Liberty Co. Commissioner, District I

basic training
Air Force Airman Jacob T.
White has graduated from basic
military training at Lackland Air
Force Base, San Antonio, Texas.
During the six weeks of train-
ing, the airman studied the Air
Force mission, organization, and
military customs and courtesies;
performed drill and ceremony
marches, and received physical
training, rifle marksmanship,
field training exercises, and spe-
cial training in human relations.
In addition, airmen who com-
plete basic training earn cred-
its toward an associate degree
through the Community College
of the Air Force.
White's parents are George V.
and Debby White of Altha.
In 2004, the airman graduated
from Altha High School.

One of Liberty County's oldest and most historic homes got a
fresh new look, thanks to the efforts of a group of community
volunteers known as "Friends of Torreya State Park." New
off-white curtains are now gracing 30 windows in the two-
story antebellum home at the state park. The volunteer group
raised $1,900 for the project and then "everybody jumped in
wholeheartedly and got it done quickly between tours on Jan.
15," according to Park Manager Steve Cutshaw. Manning

On Jan. 21 Mr. Hand's Biology
Honors class began dissecting a va-
riety of organisms. The first animal
on the list was an earthworm.
-Measuring almost a foot long,
the earthworm is relatively a sim-
ple creature. Almost nine inches
of the earthworm is intestines. The
rest of the earthworm houses its
five hearts, gizzards, bladder, and
the brain. -It has no eyes, ears, or
nose. The earthworm comes from
the Lumbricus terrestris species.
"Dissecting the earthworm was
a memorable experience in my
life that I will never forget," says
Kaitlyn Penney. Mr. Hand's class
will begin to dissect the crawfish
in a few days.

ers that this is the time of year
when termite's begin to "swarii"
or leave their colonies to search
for new nesting sites. Many
homeowners discover that they
have a termite problem when
they find termite swarmers
(winged, black insects about 1/4
inch long) in their homes.
Termites can cause consum-
ers to lose theirlargest economic
asset -- their homes and are re-
sponsible for over $700 million
in costs to consumers in Florida-
each year for damage and con-
trol costs. Termites are a fact of
life in Florida and people need
to actively protect their homes
by using a licensed professional
pest control company to provide-
termite protection services.
"This is a good time of year
for consumers to check: their
contracts with licensed pest
control companies to make sure
they are.current," Bronson said.
"AnyNone who has questions
about their pest control contract
or company can call us at 1-
800-HELPFLA. Considering
the cost of a house, it's frighten-
ing to think that about half the
homeowners in Florida have
not taken stepsi-to protect this
investment from. these damag-
ing insects."
People who do-not have .a
current termite protection con-
tract are urged to contact sev-
erail pest control companies
and request \ written estimates
and a copy of the contract they
offer. Consumers -should not
sign a contract until they have
compared at least three compa-
:niies. Pest control companies
are required by law to obtain a
signed contract prior to treating
a home. Consumers with ques-
t- ions about contracts or the per-
formance of a pest control com-
pany can call 1-800-HELPFLA.
-(1 -800-435-7:52). -
The two main types of ter-
mites that affect Florida con-
summerss are subterranean ter-
mites, which live in soil ahnd
attack structures from the.
ground up, and- dr wood .ter-
n ites, N\hich can live in isolated
pieces of wood in a stiructure
such as attic rafters and can go
undetected until they cause ex-
tensive damage. Licensed pest
management professionals have.
the expertise to inspect and treat
for infestations of these termites
and provide protective measures
for homeowners.

Our.only child died 10 years ago, as the result of a car

hind at the time, the grief of our loss overwhelmed us and
the words why and what do we do engulfed us.
We took each day and did the best we could with it. The
grief, loss and, that. phase of our lives had changed that
Our lives are supposed to be remembered through sto-
ries and memories passed on by our children, but when
your only child is gone, you have to instill those stories and,
memories with others. You hope the grandson will remem-

Being the grandparents and doing grandparent things
changes your take on the parenting, and the responsibil-

sending them home to mom.
Oh' well. Blessings come in all sizes and shapes, some-

We have an abundance of friends and family that helps us

Text: John 15:26-16:4
D.L. Moody was a successful
evangelist and held revivals and Bi-
ble conferences in both the U.S. and
Great Britain in the 1800's.
Moody was going to England
and an English pastor complained,
"Why do we need this 'Mr. Moody' ?
He's uneducated and inexperienced.
Who does he think he is anyway?
Does he think he has a monopoly on
the Holy Spirit?"
Another pastor heard him and re-
plied, "No, but the Holy Spirit has a
monopoly on Mr. Moody."
Jesus was counseling with His
disciples before He went to Jerusa-
lem. Jesus knew He was going to be
arrested and crucified. He told them
He was going away. The Disciples
were struck with grief.
Jesus comforted them with sev-
eral promises. They would have a
home with Him in heaven. He would
do anything that they asked in His
name. He would send His Holy
Spirit to live inside them. He would
never leave-them alone. He said they
would bear much fruit by. staying in
close, settled union with Him.
Even so, Jesus warned them the
world would hate them. The world
would not understand or accept
them. Neeritheless, the Counselor
-would come,. draw men to Chnst

Mysterious bad odor occurring in some landscapes

When some local residents
say that their landscape stinks,
they mean it literally. The odor
is that of rotting meat and is com-
ing mostly from shrub and flower
beds, but in some cases even from
the lawn.
This strange occurrence is the
result of a fungus that decompos-
es organic materials that are high
in cellulose. There are several
of these decomposing organisms
which are broadly classified as
the stinkhorn fungi, sometimes
called stinkhorn mushrooms.
The one most commonly seen,
or smelled, in Gulf Coast land-
scapes is the squid stinkhorn. It
arises from an egg-like structure
that is attached to the ground by
long strands. The stinking part
breaks through the "egg," with
several arms that join at the top.
The resulting structure is two to
three inches tall and almost as
wide. It is usually yellow, later
turning to a bright orange and
contains a stinking fluid.
Botanically this fungus is
Clathrus columnatus belonging
to the Basidiomicete class and
the order Phallales. Though the
fruiting structure reeks, it is an
interesting species.
Clathrus is one of the great
decomposers of organic material

A thick layer of chipped oak
wood provides an ideal en-
vironment for the stinkhorn

such as. leaves, twigs and dead
branches. Under forest condi-
tions, it is an important part of
the natural environment, helping
to break down dead materials to
simpler compounds.
A problem for homeowners
occurs when it does the same
thing in your mulched landscape
beds anfd lawns;- Woody debris
left over from the recent hurri-
cane has added to the potential
food for this fungus. It loves to
grow- in wood chips, sawdust,
dead roots, stumps and other high
cellulose containing materials.
Most of the time 'the- fungus
is unseen, producing fine strands
within the soil1 and dead organ-,,.
ic material. When it matures
enougl'and lihen weather condi-
tions are eight, it reproduces by
developing the smelly fruiting
bodies. Spores are produced
on the fruiting structure within a
slimy, stinking substance. Cer-
tain insects, especially flies, 'are

attracted and then spread the
spores to other areas.
Even when the fungus is ac-
tively growing in certain areas,
the mushrooms do not occur
constantly, appearing for several
weeks once -or twice per year.
So homeowners who are being
grossed out by the odor can take
heart in the fact that they are sea-
sonal. Also, the fungus growth
and fruiting will decrease as the
available dead organic material
advances in decomposition. De-
pending upon the amount of food
present, this time can vary from
months to several years.
There is no safe chemical con-
trol that can be recommended, so
if relief is necessary only cultural
methods can be used. First look
around to see if you are provid-
ing a food source for the fungus.
Remove sawdust piles, dead
roots and underground stumps if
feasible. This fungus particularly
likes fresh hardwood chips.and it
grows and fruits profusely when
this material is used as mulch.
. Sometimes it.is most practical
to simply move the mushrooms
as they occur. Using a shovel
- preferably a long handled one,
carefully scoop up and move
each one away from the house.
Though a fungus, stinkhorns
don't cause plant disease, so they
can be deposited in more remote
areas of the yard or even in the
compost pile without concern.
