Mobile home fire claims

life of medical worker

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The State Fire Marshal's office is investigat-
ing the cause of a 9:30 p.m. mobile home blaze
that claimed the life of a Clarks\ille resident last
Brian William Cooley, 49. died Jan. 26 of smoke
inhalation after his home caught fire. "We don't
know the origin of the fire but believe it to be
accidental," said Calhoun County Sheriff David
The fire originated on the south side of the
structure, according to Clint Croft of the Fire
Marshal's Office. While he would not discuss the
possible cause of the blaze since his investigation
is still ongoing. he did acknowledge, "I haven't
seen anything to indicate that the fire was suspi-
cious in nature."
Cooley, who worked as a nurse at Liberty

Correctional Institution, lived alone in a pair of
single%% ide trailers that had been combined into
one residence. The home as located across from
Four Mile Creek Park on H\\ y. 73. less than a half
mile from the Carr-Clarksville Fire Department.
Firefighters responded and battled the fire.
which leveled the structure. The sheriff said that
Cooley's body w\as found in his bedroom and later
taken to the medical examiner's office in Panama
City for autopsy.
He is survived by his daughter, Amber Adams,
and her husband. Rian, of Altha: his father, two
brothers and two sisters, including Becky Blair
of Blountstown. The complete obituary appears

Seatbelt use credited with saving teen's life in rollover

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Liberty Count teenager who was wearing a seat-
belt sustained onlh minor injuries after she lost control of
an SLU and o\ ertumed three times on County Road 333
Friday afternoon, about a mile from County Road 12.
Had she not taken the precaution of buckling her
seatbelt, 16-year-old Deanna ParrishofBristol probably
wouldn't have surn ied the crash, according.to FHP
Trooper Jason King.
"E\ery window %\as broken out and the windshield
%%as shattered," King said. Without her seatbelt, "she
\ would ha\e been tossed out and it wouldhaverolled over
on her." During the w reck. a rear tire blew out and the
1994 GMC.\ ent about 10 feet off the ground.
The trooper said the teen had just left her home on
Ray Kever Road around 2:30 p.m. and was on her way to
work at a Blountstown restaurant when her northbound
\ vehicle \\ ent onto the shoulder of the road.

The use of a sealbelt prevented an accident from becoming a
tragedy after this vehicle overturned three times.
The % vehicle % ent 79 feet before returning to the road
and then tra% eled 88 feet across both lanes before hitting
the k\ est shoulder. It continued on for 231 feet, returned
to the road and crossed back over to the east shoulder,

this time traveling 101 feet before it began sliding
sideways. "It looks like the rear tire blew out when it
hit the pavement, causing it to overturn and travel ap-
proximately 10 feet in the air," King said. The vehicle
landed on the driver's side, slid for nearly 50 feet and
then overturned for the second time.
The GMC continued on for almost 25 feet and then
went back into the west ditch, where it overturned a
third time, going another 24 feet before coming to rest

upright and facing south.
The SUV covered a total of 689.3 feet before stop-
ping, King said.
Parrish was transported by ambulance to the emer-
gency room at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital, where she was
treated and released.
She was cited for careless driving.
The \ vehicle, which is registered to Donald and Shelia
Sirmon5 was totaled.

EPA regulations fall far short

To the editor:
In November of 2003 the En-
vironmental Protection Agency
proposed to allow municipal
waste \ alter treatment plants to
discharge raw sewage (mixed
with treated sewage) into our na-
tions rivers and tributaries. The
deadline for public intervention
through our representatives in
Washington will be at the end
of this week. Looked at realisti-
cally and discounting the empty
hype from E.P.A. and their sup-
porting big money waste indus-
try, this proposal equates to a
terrorist threat.
Current E.P.A. regulations
on land application of "treated"
sludge falls far short of protect-
ing humans, wildlife and the en-
vironment. Enforcement rules,
site inspections, monitoring of
the amount of sludge applied to
specific sites and the composi-
tion of the sludge applied are
sorely lacking and or unknown.
Human waste has been used
for hundreds of years as a. fer-
tilizer. Today sewage sludge is
used for growing food for hu-
mans and farm animals. Today_
se% age sludge contains many
ingredients that were. lack-
ing in its counter part of years
ago. Chemicals from industry,-
residences (such as pesticides
and insecticides among others),
businesses, hospitals and funer-.
al homes are dangerous in and
of themselves but the combina-

tion of some of these chemicals
are unknown. Sewage sludge
also contains pathogens, some
of which' are still viable after
"treatment" and which can be-
come air-borne and inhaled and
therefore ingested. Vectors such
as flies, mosquitos and. rodents
can transfer harmful bacteria,
pathogens and parasite eggs
outside the application area and
effect the health of people and
wildlife, contaminate ground
and surface water and soil.
E.P.A. is now proposing to
increase the danger to us and-
our world by allowing "raw"
sewage to be discharged into the
water we fish in and swim in.
Treated sewage which is already
allowed to be discharged into
our waterways have contributed
to impaired waters. Children are
incapable of swimming without
taking water into their mouth.
Are we to never fish or swim
in our nation's waters again?
Where will the marine life go
to escape this poison? Will the
deer, bear and other wildlife
have an alternative?
Where are the Risk Assess-
ment studies E.P.A. stated they
would do v.lien the rules of land
applying were enacted years
ago? How can this government
agency keep repeating the state-
ment, "There is no scientific
evidence that the land applying
of sewage sludge has harmed
people, wildlife or the environ-

ment" when studies have not
been done?
If in 1991 the Environmental
Protection Agency discontin-
ued dumping sewage, into our
oceans because they determined
that it was polluting the ocean,
how is it now not polluting
our water, air and soil? Staff at
E.P.A. has publicly stated that
the agency does not have the re-
sources to investigate the many
health complaints from around
the country. Sewage sludge can
be treated to the point that it is
much less dangerous than it now
is. Why is it not being done?
The dictionary defines a ter-
rorist as "one who uses or fa-
vors terrorizing methods."

During the past few
weeks, I have not set
-my alarm on my clock.
JI have sat by the fire
and the pool and I've
enjoyed my new puppy
Rocco. I've spent that
time counting my bless-
ings,, thinking of family
and friends. To all of you
who have supported me
during my years in office,
thank you. I never took
the trust you placed in
me lightly. I also appreci-
ate all the hard work and
dedication of my friends
that also happen to have
been my employees.
My daughters, Amy and

Cathy, have helped me so
much through the years.
They worked so hard on
my retirement reception.
Their unconditional love,
and support is truly remark-
able. To be their mother is
my proudest accomplish-
ment in life.
My mother has been so.
supportive and has helped
in a million ways, always
trying to help make life
easier for me. Rest up, we
have a lot of catching up to
As I start on this path in
my life, I do so with enthu-
siasm. I had lunch today
with The Red Hat Society.

I've enrolled in a painting
class and I've signed up
for a tour out west.
As you can see, I'm
enjoying my retirement
so much. This is pos-
sible because someone
gave a young 17 year
old Liberty County ,girl
a chance at her first job
and since that time all of
you have always been
there to support and en-
courage me.

Thank you,
Retired Calhoun
County Tax Collector

Iraqis were voting in U.S. cities like Washington, D.C.
and Detroit. The amazing thing is there's more gunfire
there then in Fallujah and Baghdad. -JAY LENO

There's some reports that Iraqis were worried about
their election turning into a civil war. Hey, wouldn't
a civil war be an improvement over what's going on

On her second day on the job, secretary of state
Condoleezza Rice named Barbara Boxer, Ambassador
to Fallujah. I didn't quite understand what that was


A glorious day for the people of Iraq

January 30, 2005 was a glori-
ous day for Iraqi citizens. A quick
read of Iraqi history indicates that
this was the first free election for
a muliparti slate since.1954. In
1958. King Faisal f was killed in
a military coup. From the chaos
of this nmiitar- coup came Sad-
dam Hussein.
The world rejoices for the
Iraqi people who are taking their
first steps toward a democratic-
society. Democratic freedoms are
lifeblood to, a society. There is a
long road ahead for the demo-
cratic process in Iraq, but the fact
that the Iraqis ere able to go to
a polling place and cast a ballot
has tremendous cathartic effect
on Iraqi society, particularly after
decades of oppression by Sad-
dam Hussein.
I do not believe that Ameri-
can-style democracy) is achiev-
able for Iraq in the near future.,
perhaps never. However, the
Iraqis can establish a govern-
ment that is acceptable to them,
if security is achieved throughout
the country.
America has worked at per--
fecting this thing called democ-
racy for the past 229 N ears, and
we have not found the exact mix
that pleases most of the people
most of the time.
If after two centuries, Amer-
ica's experiment in democracy
is still fraught ith tension o er

sues then it ma. be expecting too
much of the Iraqis to immediate

Since a large number of eli-

That may be true,. but the
immediate questioli is whether
President Bush and the American
people are willing to continue to
make the sacrifice in blood and
money to bring about a free and
democratic Iraq.
In/the long-term, the question
is whether the American people
are willing to make the sacrifice
to continue the Bush goal of
spreading liberty throughout the
Islamic world.

The federal budget is now $427 billion! For a guy that

Big problems with the Super Bowl. I hear they might

A Tennessee senator named John Ford, a Democrat,

for child support and his ex-wife is pregnant by him
again. But the good news today he was given the

Students take part in a variety of workshops

Regular classes were canceled
on Jan. 14 for Hosford and Tolar
4th-8th Graders. No, not another
hurricane warning, bft a frenzy
of another kind. Students par-
ticipated in a variety of workshop
sessions such as "Just the Facts
Jack." "On the Loose With Dr.
Seuss." "Sensory Writing." and
"StorN te lin," as part of an effort
to expose students to a variety of
% riting-related careers and ways
of \\ filing.
\\ith the upcoming Florida
Writes! in February, students
were given a hopeful boost to
write more meaningful content
and to enjoy the world of writing.
The theme of the conference was
"A Journaling Journey." Stu-
dents documented their class at-
tendance with notes in their own
personal journals and completed
activities, after the conference in
the classroom to augment their
overall experience. Two high-
lights of the conference were the
presentations by Chris Catb, news
anchor for WMBB, and guest au-
thor, Adrian Fogelin.
One of the wildest parts of the
day were the performances at
lunch (Garfield style) by Tolar's
very own middle schools in such
acts as In Sync, Backstreet Boys,
and our very own womanless

beauty contest.
Students confessed at the end
of the day that it was a delight-

Don't wait until
A most aggravating weed ex-
ists in many Gulf Coast lawns.
It is commonly known as lawn
burweed and locally as spur-
weed, with the botanical name
Soliva pterosperma. Where
present it produces seed with
burrs or stickers during the
spring that seriously limit out-
door activities. They will pen-
etrate hands .and knees when
outdoors working and playing.
Walking barefoot across an in-
fested'area during April or May
is out of the question.
Good control of this weed
species depends upon under-
standing its life cycle and ap-
plying control measures at the
most vulnerable stage. Too of-
ten control measures are sought
after the burrs appear, each
spring. At this point it is too
late, as the weed has completed
its life cycle.
Don't confuse the sandbur
with lawn burweed. These
two weeds are much different.
*Sandbur is an upright growing
summer grassy weed, bearing
its spur covered seed pods on
terminal spikes. Lawn burweed
on the other hand, is a spread-
ing, low growing broadleaved
winter annual.
Lawn burweed germinates
during late summer and fall. It

is present all winter in infested
lawns, but is small and goes
mostly unnoticed. As February
approaches it begins to grow
rapidly, with closely spaced
seedlings forming a mat about an
inch high. By April it has com-
pleted the vegetative or growth
stage and begins to flower and
set fruit. It is the fruit, or seed,
that produce the painful burrs.
As with many other garden-
ing activities, timing is every-
thing when controlling lawn
burweed. There are two op-
portunities during the year for
dealing with it. At this time of
year, burweed is already up and
growing, so the goal is to get rid
of it .before there is an oppor-
tunity for seeding. A.few scat-
tered plants can be pulled up
and discarded. Where lawn ar-
eas are heavily infested, it might

be more practical to spray with
a post-emergent broadleaved
weed killer.
Early to mid-February ap-
pears to be the most ideal time
to use a post-emergent herbicide
on this weed. By then, it is in
active growth and will readily
take in the spray. The amount
of control will decrease with a
later application because as the
plant changes to the reproduc-
tive or flowering stage the weed
killer is not as active.
Good control of emerged
lawn burweed is possible by
using a.mixture of 2, 4-D, di-
camba and MCPP. Products
are available that have these
three herbicides combined, so
there is no need to purchase
them separately. These include
Trimec, Ortho Weed-B-Gon
for Southern Lawns/Formula II,
Spectracide Weed Stop and
Bayer Advanced Southern
Weed Killer for Lawns. There
are also other companies that
offer a similar product under
their brand names.
Be careful using these mix-
tures on St. Augustinegrass or
centipedegrass as they can be
injured under certain conditions.
Choose a formulation similar to
these that is recommended for
your specific kind of lawn grass.
Label directions for these prod-
ucts are very specific. Follow
them exactly and be sure to treat
in February before the stickers
develop. Repeat applications
spaced 10 to 14 days apart are
sometimes necessary for best
The other opportunity for
controlling burweed is in late
summer or early fall. This in-
volves applying a pre-emergent
herbicide to prevent the seed-
lings from developing from
seed. I plan to provide an article
on this subject in the summer.

Local tribe receives financial help in State Recognition bid

The year 2005 has started
off with a bang for the Apala-
chicola River 'Cheraw-Saponi
Indians. In late December of
last year this "small tribe con-
sisting of a membership of less
than 300 adults living mainly
in Bristol, Blountstown and
Marianna, received news that
they would receive a grant to

assist them "in 'their attempt
to gain recognition of their
status as a tribe by the State
of Florida. "This is going to
be a great help," said Chair-
man Pony Hill, a resident of
Blountstown, "It couldn't
come at a more crucial point in
our struggle." -
Funding from the Seva

Foundation native Ameri-.
can Community Grans Pro-
gram will give the financially
strapped tribal organization
greater ability to achieve what
many feel is their right as a
legitimate Indian Tribe. "The
State of Florida has given oth-
er tribes college scholarship,
free car tags and reservation

land," state Hill, "We deserve
the same. Nothing more, noth--
ing less." Many feel that the is-
sue of Indian casinos has made
state officials skittish about
addressing the tribal organiza-
tions request for recognition.
"We have a law against casi-
nos in our constitution," said
Hill adamantly, "it's not going

to happen."
The Seva Foundation has
provided grants to many
American Indian tribes across
the country such as the HoC-
hunk, Rosebud Sioux, Western
Shoshone and Blackfeet for a
variety of worthy projects such
as community development,
museums and youth programs.
