Calhoun County friends spend 24 hours in water, swim nearly 15 miles
Three rescued after spending night in river
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor .
What was supposed to be a two-hour
ride on the Apalachicola River turned into
an overnight ordeal that nearly cost three
men their lives this weekend.
Instead of making a quick trip on the
river the trio wound up spending the night
on an overturned boat with their legs in
the water, listening to alligators bellowing
in the distance and feeling an occasional
bump against their feet as fish swam by.
The next day, they swam between 13
and 15 miles in search of help before
coming near Titus Overholt's back yard
off Hwy. 69, north of Pine Island. After
he and his wife heard voices coming out
of the flooded area of planted pines, Over-
holt started to go have a look when Edwin
Young, 39, stumbled out through the.
trees. He could barely speak and refused
a ride to the hospital, urging Overholt to
go in after his two friends., "Those are
just kids back there," he said, "please go
back and get them." -
Overholt called 911 and then put
Ed%% in in his truck with a blanket and
- the.heat turned up. He grabbed his jet
ski and %\ent to find the others who had
been s% imming about 30 minutes behind
Young. "If it hadn't been for him going
out to get those two boys, I don't think
they would hate made it." Edwin said.
Heading north through the flooded
swampland along the river, O erholh
had to pull himself through thick briars,
branches and vines as he % ent in search
of the two mi-sing boaters. He had to

turn the jet ski off several times to try
and listen for their fading calls for help.
They were about a half mile north of his
When he found them, "They were
-just hanging onto this planted pine tree
and shaking. They couldn't hardly talk,'"
Overholt said. He lifted Luke Kirkland,
21, onto the seat behind him. Casey Cau-
sey, 23, had to hang on to the back of the
jet ski. At that point,, Overholt realized
he could barely keep the jet ski balanced.
"I told them I wasn't sure I would be able
to bring both of them in," he said.
As he headed back home, Overholt
called his wife on his cell phone and
asked her to honk his truck horn to help
guide him in through a terrain made un-
familiar by recent flooding.
The three were taken to Calhoun-Lib-
erty Hospital. All suffered from hypo-
thermia, along with cuts, scratches and
gashes from their night in the water and
their many hours of swimming., Edwin
and Luke were treated and released that
day while Casey, who got the worst of it,
was held overnight. "A doctor told Casey
he wouldn't have survived another 30
minutes out there,",Luke said.
"We didn't have nothing no light,
no phone, no food," says Edwin. They
weren't prepared for anything but a quick
run up to John Redd Landing and back
to the Blountstown Boat Landing. Fortu-
nately, they did have one essential piece
of equipment: their life jackets.
The three men, who had worked to-
gether in construction, thought they'd
take out the 16-foot fiberglass speedboat
Edwin bought just a couple of months
earlier and have a look at the rain-swollen
river that was reaching flood stage.
"We put in the water around noon or
1 p.m. Saturday," Edwin said. Sometime
after 2 p.m., they got to John Redd Land-
ing, turned around to come back and the
boat stalled out. It wouldn't start again.
They took on water but the bilge pump
wouldn't work so they tried scooping it
out with an ice chest. Then the swift-
moving current slammed the boat into a
tree, leaving it upside down. There was a
loud crack from the boat.
They were unable to upright the boat
and struggled to keep their balance as the
three of them sat on top of the capsized
vessel, which kept dipping under the wa-
ter. "We were sitting like ducks in a row,"
said Edwin. "If one of us would nod out,
the boat would teeter-totter."
They didn't know where they were.

Man charged with
and sexual battery
after woman beaten
A man who reportedly told a woman "I love you.
I don't know why I'm doing this," was charged with
sexual battery at a Blountstown home last week.
Joseph Gortt, 38, was arrested after he allegedly
beat up a woman and threatened her if she didn't
have sex with him.
According to the report from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Department, Gortt and his alleged victim
had split up. He packed his belongings and left, but
returned the following morning at 2 a.m., banging
on the door.
The woman let him in, realizing that he had been
drinking. He followed her into the bedroom and the
two talked briefly. She wanted him to stay away; he
wanted to come back. She went back to bed and he
took a pillow and laid on the floor.
When she was almost asleep, Gortt jumped on
her and threatened her if she didn't disrobe. He
continued to threaten her if she didn't cooperate,
according to sheriff's department report.
The noise awakened a one-year-old child, who
came into their room. Gortt then.grabbed his victim
by the hair and escorted the woman as she took the
child back to another bedroom.
When the two returned to the woman's bedroom,
Gortt reportedly backhanded her across the mouth,
injuring her upper lip. Shaking and in tears, the
woman returned to bed where Gortt continued to
abuse her, according to the report.
When Gortt laid down to go to sleep, the woman
got free and ran out the back door to call for help,
The woman still bore the signs of previous abuse,
the deputy noted in his report. She had a black eye
that had not healed from an incident several months
earlier when Gortt-hit her, the deputy wrote. She
told him she did not report the incident because she
Two men arrested after
making large purchase
of cold tablets Monday
Two men who bought up an unusually large
amount of ephedrine cold tablets a key ingredient
in the manufacture of methamphetamine were
arrested Monday, afternoon following..a tip from a
grocery store employee.
After notifying the Blountstown Police Depart-
ment (BPD) of what the men purchased and the kind
of vehicle they were traveling in, a black Toyota at
the intersection of Chipola Road was pulled over
around 3:30 p.m.
BPD Chief Glenn Kimbrel learned that the driver,
Jamie Hill, 34, had a suspended license, and discov-
ered that his passenger, Josh Patrick, 30, was wanted
by authorities in Pinellas County.
During a pat down of the passenger, Calhoun
County Sheriff's Deputy Chris Porter found a glass
pipe like those commonly used to smoke metham-
phetamine in Patrick's pocket. A small amount of
what appeared to be methamphetamine was wrapped
in aluminum foil and tucked in a pack of cigarettes
in his shirt pocket.
BPD Major Rodney Smith found several boxes
of ephedrine tablets throughout the car. A half gram
of methamphetamine was located in a pill bottle in
After both men were taken into custody, they
admitted they bought the cold tablets with the intent
to manufacturing methamphetamine.
Both were charged with possession of drug para-
phernalia. Hill was also charged with possession of
a controlled substance.

A LATE NIGHT LAUGHS
-- -.. -_ A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS
-_ .v, x a "fBY LATE NIGHT TELEVISION HOSTS.
Congress was right to intervene in Schiavo case
This opinion will not be
S well-received by readers who
believe Congress was meddling
f in state's rights when the.Con-
gress passed and President Bush
S signed a law meant to save the
life of Terri Schiao.
Polls show .that about 75%
of Americans think that it was
S wrong for Congress and Presi-
dent Bush to get involved in the
Polls also show' that most
Americans agreed with the re-
mon al of the-Schiavo's feeding
tube.: Interestingly, about 50%
of born-again. or evangelical
-Christians, people-who attend
4 church every week, supported
the removal of Schiavo's feed-
People are entitled to their
opinion. I'm entitled to mine.
I .understand the basics of
the legalese in the Schiavo
case. Florida is one of the many
states that give the spouse the,
right to make life and death de-
cisions about his or her mate.
I don't have a problem with
that. but the law is not all en-
compassing. The law does not.
cover every nuance of our lives.
That is \hy we have judges.
In 99.99%' ofthe' ases that
come before 'the courts. the
,-judge can follow the law and
adjudicate the case, but every-
now and then, a Schiavo case
Yes, the law said let the hus-
band make the decision about
removing the feeding tube. Cut
and dry, right? I don't think.
The decision to remove this
helpless % oman's feeding. tube
and stare her to-death didn't
occur shortly after her disabling
heart attack. All of this took

and writer wih an extensive back-.
ground in domrnesc and foreign policy
issues.. He lives in Shalimar, Fla.
place 15 years down the road.
What was to be gained from
killing this woman? Nothing.
But television was filled with-
many "experts" and people'in
general who apparently viewed
Schiavo as damaged goods. She
was impaired, disabled, so she
had to go. Her husband said so.-
I wont take the cynical view
and say that the Congress and
President Bush intervened in
the Schiavo case for political
gain. I believe that members of
Congress, including Tom Delay.
were acting out of compassion
for this helpless woman. They
attempted to use their congres-
sional powers to. buy time for
Schiavo. But they failed. The
Congress should have written
an ironclad law that would have
protected Schiavo and saved
.During Reconstruction after
the Ci1 il War. Congress passed
federal laws to protect citizens
when state, laws did not of-
fer protection. Protecting the
civil rights of black Americans
comes to mind.
The 14th Amendment gives
the federal go ernment the
right to intervene if it is felt that
the state is- violating the rights
,of an American citizen. I think
that the State of Flonda did vio-
late Schialo's rights
It is a bit scary to me to learn
that many Americans view
disabled people as "damaged
goods" and should- be put to
There are thousands of people
like Terri Schiavo in America's
nursing homes. My mother was
in a nursing home for over four
years. I regularly visited her,
took care of her business, and
my wife .washed her clothes.
Most of the people in nursing
homes are women. Many do not
know daylight from. dark. The
nurses park the most helpless
ones -near the nurse's station so
that they can be monitored. It is
a sad sight.
Some can. talk, some can't.
The nursing home staff feeds
them, bathes -them, and takes
care of all their'needs. They are

Many of these. people in
nursing homes are alone. Their
husbands have. long ago died.
They have no families. :Who.

move their feeding tube?
The :point is that no one
makes that decision. The nurs-
ing homes take care of them
until the\ die of natural causes.
That should have happened for
A woman ran her SUV off a bridge and fell 60 feet into a
river, and lived! That's fantastic! But tragically, the police
weren't able to save the gasoline. -CRAIG FERGUSON
You know what I watched last night? I hadn't seen it in
about 20 years. "Mad Max, the Road Warrior," the Mel
Gibson movie ....what was that, about 1980? It takes place
when gas is so precious, people are killing each other for
a couple of gallons. And it was set some time in the future
- I think it was the summer of 2005. JAY LENO
Every week there's a big problem here in New York
City and now, do you know what it is? Giant potholes.
Thousands of giant potholes all over New York City ...
One pothole I saw was so deep, you could look into it and
actually see where Scott Peterson is headed.
Awoman in Kettering, Ohio, gave birth to a baby at a gas
station. So apparently now, when you fill your tank, they
take your first-born. -JAY LENO
Good news, ladies and gentlemen ... organ donation is
up 6 percent. And that's just in the chili at Wendy's.
What a lovely day it was in Los Angeles today, wasn't it
lovely? Beautiful! (applause) Spring's in the air it's so
nice people moved their crystal meth labs out on the front
lawn. CRAIG FERGUSON
Squeamish Mel Gibson fans like myself will be happy to
hear that they've released a recut version of "Passion
of the Christ." I guess they edited it to make it more
family-friendly. In this version, Jesus just gets community
service. JIMMY KIMMEL
A woman in Louisiana discovered $40,000 Oworth of
cocaine wrapped around the fuel tank of her car. It's true!
So she sold it and bought a tank of gas.
Gasoline prices continue to rise here in California. Prices
are the highest in the nation, well over three dollars a
gallon in some places. Unbelievable. The gas station
near my house, they have a slot for your credit card and
another one for your 401 (k). -JAY LENO
New allegations have surfaced that some professional
football players have taken steroids. In fact, some of them
have gotten so big they've taken up baseball.
President Bush's approval rating now dropped 10
points, to a record low of 45 percent. Do you realize if the
presidential elections were held today, John Kerry would
have to work twice as hard to lose? JAY LENO
The judge in the Michael Jackson trial ruled to allow
testimony from past accusers. So you thought the lines
were long at Disneyland ... now you're gonna see somet
hing.. -CRAIG FERGUSON
Now Martha Stewart's out of prison, she's under house
arrest. You know how the rules of house arrest work? It's
interesting Martha's allowed to leave her house for up
to 48 hours per week, she can go to work, she can run
errands, she can attend religious services, then she has
to go back home at night or, as everyone else calls it,
living. -JAY LENO
Michael Jackson claims he's the victim of a conspiracy
by a group that's trying to make him out to be a weirdo.
I believe that group is called "the public."
They had the big annual Easter egg hunt there on the
White House lawn in Washington..The kids found 800
eggs and 200 John Kerry ballots from Ohio.

All they knew was that they couldn't see any land any where. Just
miles and miles of water and treetops.
"Edwin kept saying, 'it's o.k., it's o.k., we're going to make it'"
said Casey, who admitted that he was ready to give up.
They rested until daybreak, realizing they were going to have
to swim out for help. They debated which way to go but Edwin
prevailed, pointing out that they need to "keep the sun at our back"
so they wouldn't go in circles. "I didn't know which way land was.
I just knew we had to go in one direction and keep swimming,"
he said. "They hung in there pretty good," he added.
Casey was lagging. He could hear the occasional bellow from
an alligator, but he never saw any. When he felt something bump
his leg "that gave me a little juice" and he picked up the pace as
he swam far behind Edwin.
They swam an estimated 13 to 15 miles in the cold water. "We
swam from daylight until 1:30 or 2 p.m.," Edwin said, adding,
"The water was just stinking cold." They took a break from 9:30
a.m. until 11 a.m. when they found a spot to rest on and warm
up under the sun.
Edw in continued to lead the way although he couldn't be sure
where they were going. He kept coaching his younger buddies,
who were wearing down under the strain. "I thought I was going
to die beside him and he thought he was going to die beside me,"
Luke said of Casey.
Feeling the effects of hypothermia, the two younger men were
struggling. "They were getting delirious and I was too," Edwin
said. "I couldn't see an end." He would yell back and wait for
their response to know they were still moving. The last time he
called for them, he didn't get an answer.
With his two friends trailing about 30 minutes behind him in
the water, Edw in kept pushing on and finally walked out onto the
edge of the 0\ erholt property. "I could barely move, I \ as so sore
from swimming and I was shaking badI,"' Edwin said.
When they heard the sound of a motor, Luke and Casey started
c411ling for-help. "When. I sa\ him. it \'%as like God touched ine
or something." Casey said of Overholt's timely arnial. He later
said the experience. "Gave me a good \\ake-up call and showed
me I \ as really meant to be on this Earth."
A day after their rescue, the three men were asked what they'd
do different in the future in a similar event.
Edwin said he'd never go on the river again without telling
someone his plans tirst,. He'd also be sure to take a cell phone
S"I'm going to stay off the big river," says Luke. His next trip
out %\ ill be on something smaller, like the Chipola River.
As for Casey, "I don't want to see no more boats or see any
w after unless it's coming out of the faucet."

FIND GOD'S WILL
TO BE PLEASED
Text: Romans 12:2
A college student needed to buy
a car. One night he dreamed that ev-
erything was yellow. The next day, he
found a car that was yellow inside and
out. He bought without any questions.
It turned out to be a lemon.
How do you find God's will? There
is no simple, magical formula. How-
ever, there are some things in your life
that need to be in order before God will
reveal His will.
vFirst, be willing to do whatever God
wants you do. Second, stop thinking
like the world. Third, start thinking like
God. Then, you will be able to "test and
approve what God's will is His good,
pleasing, and perfect will (NIY)."
That means you will be able to try,.
examine, scrutinize, or discern God's
will. You will be able to listen to God
and understand His plan. God's
plan for your life may require you to
make great sacrifices. It may require
you to suffer greatly. You may suffer-
persecution and pressures of all kinds.
Following God does not mean that your
problems in life are over.
It does mean that you can find joy,
peace, satisfaction, and purpose in
whatever God wants you to do. That
is why Paul could get up after being
stoned by one crowd for preaching the
Gospel, find another crowd, and preach
the exact same message.
God created you. He "knit you to-
gether in your mother's womb." You
are no accident. You were "created in
Christ Jesus to do good works, which
God prepared in advance for us to do
(NIV)." He knows what will challenge
and satisfy you.
There is nothing like being in the
center of God'- plan doing e\acd.i % hat
He wants you to do. God's ill 's good.
pleasing, and perfect to you.

April in the garden
April is a busy time in the gar-
den. The chance of frost is mini-
mal, the days are becoming lon-
get and the temperature is quite
pleasant. Its time to get busy in
If you want to add color to
your landscape, now's the time
to plant many of our warm sea-
son annuals including celosia,
coleus, dusty miller, impatiens,
marigold, nicotiana, ornamental
peppers, pentas, portulaca, sal-
via, torenia and zinnias.
One of the newer annuals is
the 'Mona Lavender' Plectran-
thus.- This compact plant has
handsome purple-backed leaves
and produces multitudes of
short stalks of lavender flowers
throughout most of the summer.
This plant will grow in full sun
to part shade. It's visually strik-
ing when several are planted to-
gether or massed for color in a
April is also a great time
to plant flowering perennials.
Some that will provide long last-
ing summer color include the ci-
gar flower (Cupheas), plumbago,
rudbeckia, the perennial salvias,
stokesia and verbena.
One of our most reliable pe-
rennials is the firespike (Odonto-
nema strictum). This perennial
has an upright habit, typically
growing to about 3 feet tall. Its
shiny dark green leaves accent
its .-beautiful terminal spikes
of tubular red flowers. These
showy flowers attract humming-
birds and several species of but-
terflies. Firespike is at its best in
fill sun. However, it is one of
only a few flowering plants that
give good, red color in a partially
shaded site. Although lirespike
is tender to cold, it reliably re-
turns in our area each spring.
April is also one of our busi-
est times in the vegetable gar-
den. Bush and pole beans, can-
taloupes, cucumbers, eggplant,
lima beans, peppers, sweet pota-
toes and tomatoes are just a few
vegetables that can be planted
now. For those with limited
space, try growing vegetables in
containers. For more informa-
tion on the subject refer to the
UF/IFAS publication entitled
Minigardening. It's available
online at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/
VH032 or by calling your local
Extension Office for a copy.
April is also an appropriate
time to fertilize your lawn. If
you haven't already done so,
apply a slow-release fertilizer.
Generally, a 15-5-15 or a 15-0-
15 fertilizer is a good choice for
all of our warm season grasses.
When fertilizing your lawn,
remember if you spill fertilizer
on the driveway or sidewalk,
be sure to sweep it up and put it
back in the bag or spread it on
the yard. If fertilizer is not swept
up, it will easily find its way
down the storm drain and into
the water supply.
Tip of the Week: Try planting
that potted Easter lily outside in
your landscape. Choose a sunny
location in a well-drained soil
that has been amended with or-
ganic matter. Good drainage is
the key for success with lilies.
But, don't expect your garden
planted lily to bloom next year at
Easter, it willrebloom sometime
in late spring. And an added
note to pet owners, Easter lilies
are toxic to cats.

eryone who plans on tanning, or
enjoying Florida's many outdoor
activities, to be diligent in pro-
tecting your skin."
According to the DOH, tan-
ning is a gradual process that
should, involve limited exposure
to uv light from the sun or tan-
ning devices; to avoid injury. To
avoid overexposure, the DOH
recommends the following
smart tanning practices:
*Apply a generous amount
of sunscreen before going out-
doors. Apply.early and often.
*Lengthen your tanning times
over several days and weeks,
whether you are outdoors in the
sun, or using a tanning device
*Protect your lips by using lip
balm that blocks uv light.
*Whether indoors or out-
doors. keep skin moist by using
aloe vera gel or moisturizer to
avoid sunburn and sooth your
'Wear protective eyewear that
has been approved by the FDA.
*When using a tanning de-
vice, always follow the recom-
mended tanning schedule pro-
vided by the manufacturer and
read all warning signs and op-
erational procedures. Each bed/
booth is different.
*Certain foods and medica-
tions may cause adverse effects
during the tanning process. Ask
the operator to see a list of these-

Courthouse employees hoping Legislature
will fund some much-needed improverhents
- Tiles hang from the basement
ceiling, exposing metal trusses
and electrical wiring. Yellow,
insulation grazes the top of
shelves that store file boxes. The
walls are mildewed. The Liberty
County Courthouse is due for a
It looks like the county might
get some money from the state to
begin the overhaul. But it won't
be certain until June 30.
Robert Hill, Liberty Coun-
ty Clerk of Courts, requested
$350,000 from'the legislature to
renovate the courthouse. It needs
new windows, new heating and
air conditioning unites, repairs
to the basement and a new re-
cords storage building.
"And there are some electri-
.cal problems that need to be up-
graded," Hill said.
On March 23, Senate Justice
Appropriations Committee ear-
mafrked $50,000 for courthouse
renovations. But the state bud-
geting process is far from over.
The 2005-2006 budget may not
be signed by Gov. Jeb Bush until
"The request will go to full
next," said .Deborah Fairhurst,,
a legislative assistant to Sen. Al
Lawson, D-Quincy. "And we
will be looking for help on the
House side as well."
The House' is working to "
secure additional funding for'
the courthouse, too, said Kris
Money, legislative assistant to
the late Rep. David Coley, R-
Marianna. "On the House side,
we are hoping to fully fund it,"
On March 24, the House Jus-
tice Appropriations .Commit-
tee voted to earmark money'for
the Liberty County Courthouse
renovations. But, at ,press time.
legislative aides could not state
the exact amount. -
The Liberty County Court-'
house was built in 1942. Ad-
ditions were made in 1971. An
annex to the courthouse. built in
2000, houses the clerk's office.
Marcia Wood, the Supervisor
of Elections for Liberty County,
Said she has %worked in the court-
house for 22 years. She said she
is glad an effort is being made
to renovate the courthouse. New
heating and cooling units are
high on her list of needs for the

But that's not all Wood said
the building needs. "This old
section needs to be rewired and
they haven't done it yet," Wood
said. "I'd also like to see some
cosmetic things like tile in the
hallways instead of carpet."
