State attorney will not

seek the death penalty

Grand jury indicts

Marshall on murder,

attempted murder

& robbery Thursday
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Calhoun County grand
jury. returned three indictments
against 19-year-old Edkah Leroy
Marshall III last week for the
.4. brutal death of his grandmother,
the shooting of her companion
and robbery.
The 21-member grand jury
-! .concluded their deliberations at
S5:27 p.m. after hearing witnesses
'and evidence from Assistant
Edkah State Attorney Larry Basford
Leroy before returning a true bill on
Marshall three counts Thursday.
Marshall was arrested in Mis-
sissippi after the March 1 shooting death of his 71-year-old grand-
mother, Ruby Sansom. Her body was found in the mobile home
near Altha that Marshall had shared with Sansom and her friend,
61-year-old Gerald Wells. Also living at the Blackbottom Road
residence was Marshall's 12-year-old cousin, Jonathan Sansom.
According to reports from the Calhoun County Sheriff's Depart-
ment, after the shooting MLarshall drove off in his grandmother's car
with his 16-year-old girlfriend and his cousin. They traveled from
Altha to his half-sister's home in Brookhaven. Mississippi.
Slarshall's g girlfriend told in% estigators that Marshall stated that he
shot his grandmother and Wells and believed both were dead when
they fled the scene. Wells who named Marshall as the shooter
1 as found in his bedroom 12 hours later after being shot once
in the neck and shoulder area. The body of Ruby Sansom was on
the li\ ing room floor.
The grand jury returned the following three-count indictment.
Count 1: Murder in the first degree for the death of Ruby West
Sansom while engaged in a robbery.
Count 2: Attempted murder in the first degree foi the attempt to
kill Gerald T. Wells by shooting him with a shotgun.
Count 3: Robbery w% ith a firearm in which money or property was
taken from Ruby Sansom while using a shotgun, which resulted in
her death.
While the maximum penalty for the murder charge is death, State
Attorney Ste\ e Meadow s has already decided he will not seek the
death penalty. according to his spokesman Joe Grammer. During last
year's campaign. Meadow s said he would institute a death penalty
qualification committee. That eight-member committee, comprised
of senior attorney s from Bay, Jackson, Washington and Holmes
counties, met last week. "Their recommendation was that there was
not sufficient aggravating circumstances to seek the death penalty."
Grammer said. Nleadows has accepted their recommendation and
X% ill instead seek life in prison without parole.
The maximum sentence for counts 2 and 3 would be life in prison
w while the minimum would be 25 years, if Marshall is convicted as
charged, according to Granmmier..
Marshall is set for arraignment May 4. He is being held without
bond in the Calhoun County Jail.

SBristol man charged
with faking vandalism
& making up threats
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Bristol man who told deputies he had been
threatened and his truck was vandalized has
confessed that.he made it all up.
After an investigation by theTiberty County
Sheriff's Department, John Godwin was charged
with filing .a false report of a crime on April 6.
When investigators 'began looking into his com-
plaint, "things just didn't add up," said Major
Dgnnie Conyers.
Godwin, who was recently arrested for taking
deer on a state, right-of-way by wildlife officers,
told deputies he made up stories about threaten-
ing phone calls and spray painted his own truck.-
The windows of the truck were covered with
black crosses and the_ word "DIE" was painted
on the hood. Threats were also written along the
side of the truck.
Godwin admitted that he vandalized his own
vehicle in hopes of garnering sympathy in the
handling of his night hunting arrest, according
to a report from the Liberty County Sheriff's
Department.
Days earlier, Godwin told deputies that he
wasn't alone on several occasions when he hunted
deer illegally along the Trammell Bridge and
said. he was being targeted by others who were
not charged.
When deputies returned to Godwin's home
on.Henry Kever Road they found that the graffiti
had been washed off his 1997 F-150 pickup. He.
showed investigators the paint he had used, which
was in,. can hidden under a tarp in his shed.
Godwin had offered a $1,000 reward for infor-
mation about his truck being vandalized.
He was released on $1 :000 bond.

Convenant Hospice offering free

advance care planning workshop


TALLAHASSEE Cov-
enant Hospice is offering a free
Advance Care Planning Work-
shop on April 26 from 9 a.m.
to 10:30 a.m., featuring key-
note speaker attorney Twyla
Sketchley. Advance Care Plan-
ning (ACP) is a process to help
extend your rights through
documentation that guides your
medical care should you be-
come unable to communicate
your wishes.
Advance directives will be
available for participants to com-
plete during the workshop. This
documentation consists of two
primary concepts: devising a liv-
ing will and designating a health
care surrogate. Less than 25%
of Americans over the age of 18
enact these rights in writing.
-


Covenant Hospice believes
that ACP is for everyone re-
gardless of age or health status
- and that it is important to make
your wishes known so that your
loved ones will not have to en-
dure the pressure of deciding
your health care, should you no
longer have the ability. Having
this documentation can reduce
conflicts and. alleviate fears
about medical intervention and
loss of dignity.
The workshop will be held in
the, Covenant Hospice education
room, located at 1545 Raymond
Diehl Road, Suite 102. Breakfast
will be served. Seating is limited
and advance registration is en-
couraged. Call 850-575-4998 or
1-800-374-9733 for more infor-
mation.

LATE NIGHT -LAUGHS:.....
"A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS
6 W BY LATE NIGHT TELEVISION HOSTS.


New book outlines ten forces


that have 'flattened the world'


Thomas L. Friedman of The New
York Times wrote "The World is Flat;
A Brief History of the Twenty-first
Century."
If you are curious about why jobs
are disappearing to foreign countries,
particularIl China and India, then read
this book.
IfL ou are curious \%hv y e buy manu-


cOx's

CORNER

Jerry Cox is a retired military officer
and writer with an extensive back-'
ground in domestic and foreign policy
issues. He lives in Shalimar, Fla.


factured goods from China that are worth billions, then
read this book
If you are curious why General Electric has research
and development centers in India and Cliina, then read
this book.
Friedman's publisher should commit public service
act and mail a copy of this book to all 635 members of
Congress, the President and everyone in the Bush ad-
ministration. They all should have to take a test on the
contents of the book. But that w on't happen. I don't think
many of them read, at least, not ver much.
Friedman lists ten forces that "flattened the world."
According to Friedman. Flattener #t occurred on.
November 9, 1989 "When the Walls came down and the
Windows went up."-
Two major events occurred about six months apart.
The Berlin Wall came down and about six months later
MNicrosoft introduced the world to Windows 3.0.
The Cold War was over when the Berlin Wall came
down. Democracy % as on the move. East joined West.
With the Wall dow n. people w ere able to corrununicate.
The former Soviet states could now tap into the world's
information flow. The first personal computers came on
the market in 1981. but w ith aw kward operation s\ stems.
, Window s 3.0, which shipped on May 22, 1990, was a
Major event for the PC world. People could now easily
connect PCs to the Internet. The flow of information.
throughout the international community increased dra-
matically in volume and speed. People in distant places
are now talkirig to each other.
Flattener #2 occurred on August 9, 1995 when
Netscape went public. Netscape provided the means of
searching the Internet for information.
Flattener #3 was the advent of software applications
for personal computers that improved the productivity
of the w% orkforce. Punch in data and let the software do
the work.
Flattener #4 is "open-sourcingY" meaning the oppor-
I/]L('> *' *,' *'.-'1-i ."*i " T' s- '!3 / o ^')


tunity to share knowledge and informa-
tion.
Flattener #5 is outsourcing. When you
call the 800 number for assistance with a
problem with a PC or an appliance, there
is a good chance that you will be talking
with someone in India. -
Because the world is wired with fi-
ber optic cables, the Indian or Chinese


worker can provide a service to American customers or
companies without leaving their home country.
Why pay an American to write computer code when
you can pay an Indian, East European or Asian much
less to do the same thing? That's the view of corporate
America.
Flattener #6 is off-shoring. Labor costs too high, no
problem close do% n the American factory and buy
or build one in China. '
.Flattener #7 is supply-chaining. The Wal-Mart sup-
ply chain is the poster boy for this flattener. Supplier's
trucks arrive at Wal-Mart distribution centers 24/7. In.
a couple of days, the supplier's product is in the local
Wal-Mart store.
Flattener #8 is in-sourcing. UPS and FEDEX do not
just deliierpackages. These compares handle the logis-
tics for much of corporate America. .
Flattener #9 is "in-forming." Web browsers like
Google and Yahoo! are the search engines that inform
us about an\ subject. A world of knowledge is at our
fingertips.
Flattener #10 is "The Steroids." Digital, Mobile, Per-
sonal and Virtual. We can conduct our business in our
* pickups, at home, or most anywhere with all the electrical
gadgets available today.
The "totally wired" person carries an electronic gad-
get that is a mobile telephone that takes. pictures, has
software for letters, spreadsheets, business, contacts,
e-mails and connects to the Internet and other PCs. All
the office equipment \ou need, except a printer, right in
your hand..
Friedman writes about how these technologies come
together in a triple convergence bringing more people
onto the playing field and into the global economy. Gov-,
ernments and governmental agencies are becoming less
important in a global economy.
Times are changing. Friedman's book is a must
read. ,'

Before they went to Rome, President Bush let his
father and Bill Clinton sit in on his daily intelligence
briefings. And both Bush Sr. and Clinton were
surprised it was done in the form of a puppet
show. -JAY LENO

Approximately 5,000 people attended the funeral
of Johnnie Cochran on Wednesday, including O.J.
Simpson, Michael Jackson, Jesse Jackson, and Al
Sharpton. Actually, O.J. played a major role at the
funeral, as he led a slow speed procession to the
cemetery in a convoy of white Ford Broncos.
SDENNIS MILLER

Michael Jackson got a break from his trial last week,
and he needed it because, I mean, the Ferris Wheel
hadn't been oiled, the giraffes hadn't been milked .
..I mean, the Neverland Ranch is a mess.
JIMMY KIMMEL

President Clinton flew back from Rome with
President Bush on Air Force One. President Bush
,showed Clinton some of the changes they'd made
in the plane since Clinton last flew, in it. In fact,
when they got back to the sleeping quarters, Clinton
looked at the ceiling and said, "Hey, where are the
mirrors?" -JAY LENO

There was so much coverage of the pope's funeral,
and they keep coming up with these new facts all
the time. They said that the Vatican released the
pope's will to the public. I didn't know that he had a
will ... the surprising thing is, he left everything to
the Church of Scientology. -CONAN O'BRIEN

John Kerry is on crutches after knee surgery. The
good news today h'e put in for another Purple
Heart. JAY LENO

In an effort to beef up U.S. border security, starting
in 2008, Americans will need passports to enter
the United States from Canada and Mexico, while
Canadians will have to present a passport to enter
from Canada. Mexicans, on the other hand, will still
just have to be able to run really fast.
DENNIS MILLER

Britney Spears and her husband Kevin Federline
have a new reality show coming out on the UPN
network. Well, it's nice to see Britney finally
capitalizing off Federline's amazing star power.
DENNIS MIL-ER

The United States announced today a plan that will
tighten all borders by 2008. Mexico announced a
plan to have all their people here by 2007.
-JAY LENO

It was a very awkward moment, when Bush, in Rome
for the Pope's funeral, met a group of cardinals and
congratulated them on beating the Astfos.
-. CRAIG FERGUSON

It's the 75th anniversary of the Twinkie. I can't help
but think that, in a thousand years when they dig up
this civilization, all they're going to find are.Twinkies
and free CDs from AOL. -JIMMY KIMMEL

You know the difference between Jane Fonda,
President Clinton and President Bush? Jane Fonda's
the only one that actually went to Vietnam.
-JAY LENO

Did you hear about the rapper C Murder, who was
convicted of murder? He's appealing against his
conviction and changing his stage name in hopes of
convincing people he's innocent. It's true. So from
now on, he'll be known as'R. Blake."
CRAIG FERGUSON

It was chilly on the opening day at Yankee Stadium.
It was so cold Jose Canseco was injecting players
with hot cocoa.. .i'i. DAicEt-E f IMAN'

HOW DOES
GOD COMMUNICATE?
Text: John 10:27
How does God communicate His
will? One man was praying about
God's will. His car broke down in
front of the Philippines embassy. He
determined that God %anied him to be
a. missionary to the Philippines. What
would have happened if he got stuck on
the elevator with a girl named Mary?
God did not intend it to be myste-
rious or complicated. God wants us to
know His will. Our purpose is, "to do
good works, which God has prepared
in advance .for us to do." (Eph 2:10
How does that happen? God com-
municates to us. Jesus.said, "My sheep,
listen to my voice; I-know them, and
They follow-Me i N-I' "
I keep my horse, in a place with
eight other hor,-e. There is a creekrun-

Reader disagrees with decision to end Calhoun driver's license service


To the editor:
Thank you Mrs. Burkett for
speaking with me concerning the
discontinuance of driver license
servicing by the Calhoun Coun-
ty Tax Collector's office. You at-
tended to my inquiries promptly,
without notice. Despite being
short-staffed, you did so in a
pleasant, cooperative. and pro-
fessional manner. Your service
typified the service that I have
always received, and even come
to expect, from the Calhoun
County Tax Collector's office.


I think you can credit your long
association with this fine office
for your election and for setting
you apart in a field of qualified
candidates seeking that job.
However, Mrs,. Burkett, I re-
spectfully disagree with your
decision to discontinue driver's
license servicing through the tax
collector's office. I do not un-
derstand how it could no longer


county" to provide this service
if your cost-benefit analysis ad-
equately considered the costs
to citizens of conducting their
driver's license business else-
where. According to figures
published in the Calhoun-Lib-
erty Journal (March 23, 2005),
1,166 Calho.un Countians and


600 Liberty Countians renewed
their driver's licenses in person
during 2004. If the same number
of persons in 2005 must drive
at least an hour to renew their
driver's license, the cumulative
cost in travel time alone could
reasonably be in the order of a
couple thousand hours. Add to


that other travel costs (particu-
larly in light of recent gas pric-
es) and the likelihood of unpaid
time off from work for many and
it is hard to believe that your de-
cision is a "cost effective" one.
Furthermore, it appears your
reasoning is based upon the
faulty premise that. government
services should be limited to
those that directly generate reve-

Death by starvation is not the

way to end a life with dignity
lTo the editor:
The right to die in a dignified manner has been established and
recognized by the courts of America. Of course, John Kevorkian,was
prosecuted as a mass murderer for assisted suicide, but those people
chose to die a dignified death. Jim Jones gave his followers poison to
drink which they drank freely on their own and we thought the worst
of that but they, too, chose to die a dignified death.
I found it so repulsive that all the courts allowed one man (who
had a motive for the death of his legal wife) to say his wife would not
want to live in that state of health. Our courts sentenced a helpless,
innocent woman to death in the most horrible, inhumane way for
a,person to die by starvation. I would like anyone to show that
death b> stan ation and deprivation is humane or dignified. If this is
- true, %h\N do we spend so much money to feed the starving people in
third \orld countries, flood \ victims, earthquake victims. The reason
is we are supposed to be a humane society.
So, have the courts opened a new avenue for death? Will we turn
'off the water and refuse to feed all the condemned inmates on death-
row? Will this sa% e us billions of dollars to carry out death penalties
all over the United States? After 'all, it is now been shown to be a
dignified and humane way to kill a person.
What about humane societies and saving animals? Some places
have law enforcement officers that ensure that animal rights are
protected. Hon sad that one man chose to allow his wife to starve and
be deprived of %% after in the name of humanity, while he li es %% ith a
common-law v. ife and raises a family.
I for one. am changing my li\ ing X% ill to opt for lethal injection
over starvation. Get it over with, let mi family live in peace. Free up
my death bed for the next victim. -

Some facts on rising gas prices
To the editor:
After reading a story on Bloomberg news regarding oil in the
Middle East. I thought the citizens of the U.S. need to know some
interesting facts concerning the driving price behind oil in our
country. ;
The story written by Andy Criichlow. reports that the Iraq,
insurgents, %ho'% e carried out over 200 attacks on the country's oil
pipeline network since the U.S.-led in asion in 201)03, are costing the
country about $600 million per month in lost oil revenue.
Attacks against oil production facilities and pipelines have cut.
Iraq's capability to export crude b\ 20 percent oer the last year to
S about 1.5 million barrels a da\.They-say that they work for two weeks
repairing the lines and they blow it up again within 30 minutes of
S reopening. The Iraqi Oil Nlinister,said that "Iraq could easily ship
two million barrels a da\ without attacks."
Oil is o\ er 50 percent more expensni e than year ago. Uncertainty
over supplies from Iraq is one of the factors driving oil futures to
record levels as x world demand for crude continues to grow according
S to analysts. The Baghdad-based oil minister \which controls the
industry, is seeking proposals from international security companies
on how best toprotect its oil sites.
I sure;hope that the international security companies are not like,
President Bush and the Social Securit' Administration -whom are
tr ing to con since the pubhc that the younger generation should invest
their personal accounts in the stock market and the older generation
S in bonds. As all of us %working citizens know, with the cost of driving
these days, we will be lucky if we can e en makeit to and from work.
to keep our jobs, much less have something left over to invest in,.
Maybe Bush wants the U.S. citizens to invest in international oil
and gas...now that's a thought!

Study shows forests vital to Florida's economy


from the Florida Forestry Association
TALLAHASSEE A study
released recently by the Florida
Forestry Association and the Uni-
versity of Florida Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences reveals
that Florida's forests and forest
products industry are among the
largest agricultural commodities
in the state, with total output
above $16.5 billion. The findings
were announced by Agriculture
Commissioner Charles Bronson
and the Florida Forestry Asso-
ciation.
Titled, "Economic Impacts of
the Forest Industry in Florida,"
the landmark study also shows that
the industry supplied Florida with
over 133,000 jobs in 2003. In ad-
dition to providing jobs, Florida's
forestry community manages for-
_ests that provide wildlife habitat,
clean air, clean water, recreation
and more than 5,000 products that
we use daily.
"The report confirms what.


those in the agricultural industry
have always known that our
forests and products derived from
them have a tremendous economic
benefit to Florida," Bronson said.
"And the recreational value they
provide, as well as the clean water
and air, make the millions of acres
of forests in Florida one of the
state's most treasured resources."
The forest industry continues to
grow in Florida. Georgia-Pacific
Corporation announced it expects
to open its newest oriented strand
board (OSB) mill in Hosford this
summer. The operation will em-
ploy more than 100 people and
will bring more revenue to Liberty
County through taxes, utilities
and local businesses. Keeping a
healthy forest products market
is essential to keeping Florida
green. Florida's forest industry
constantly works to sustain the
state's forest, ensuring that the
resource stays abundant for years
to come.

"The Nature Conservancy has
always recognized the important
ecological value of Florida's man-
aged forests," said Vicki Tschin-
kel, the Nature Conservancy's
Florida director. "This study
confirms the economic benefits
of those ecological values, which
are best maintained by preserving
productive forest lands for future
generations."
Forests also have a significant
impact on tourism and recreation
in Florida. Over half of all Florida
visitors engage in some type of
nature-based activity during their
visits, with most of these activities
taking place in Florida's forests.
Outdoor recreation in Florida
has a total economic impact of
over $22 billion, with $6 billion
directly tied to forest-related
activity.
The Florida Forestry Asso-
ciation is the only statewide
non-profit trade organization
representing the interests of land-
owners, loggers, foresters and the
forest products industry in Flori-
da. For more information, please

how people here once lived, worked and played.

ALIVE IN 2005
by Katie Brown
The seniors of 2005 at Altha
School are very excited to be where
they are now. In-just a little over a
month, a very happy chapter in their
lives will be closing, and a whole
new chapter is going to open for
them. Among the many, many things
the seniors get to "do throughout the
year, one of those things is they get
to leave something for the school to
remember them by. The senior class
at Altha this year is holding a book
drive in loving memory of Angie
Nevitt. If you have any old books
that you have no use for, or if you
have any book you know you will
never read, this is for a good cause.
Each book will have Angie's name
on it. If you want to help this great
cause, but you have no books to,
.give, a good way to help would be a
monetary donation. Any help would
be greatly appreciated. The book
drive will be open for the next two
or three weeks. The seniors are re-
ally happy to do something for their
classmate, and they see this oppor-
tunity as a great way. to remember
her, and what an awesome person
she was..
Also, the seniors are really an-
ticipating the long awaited senior


the group who are a part of the Pro-
Start classes just competed in Or-
lando for the annual Culinary Arts
competition. Now they're, getting
ready to go back. The annual state
trip is coming April 13th,14th, and
15th. Sky Scott is a State officer. He
will be competing in various com-
petitions at state. Sky said It's my
last year, I'm just trying to enjoy
myself."
All the members have worked
really hard on their events. Mrs.
Granger is the FCCLA sponsor. If
they win at state, they will advance
to nationals.

ents attend a Florida junior col-
lege or four-year university.
Each winner will receive $600
when the scholarship winners
are announced. The remaining
$600 will, be awarded, after the
completion of-one-semester and


documentation of passing grades.
is submitted to the FPPA office.
"The Florida Peanut Produc-
ers Association is committed to
helping further the education of
young people in Florida and the

The FPPA welcomes all ap-
plicants. The final selection will
be made by the committee and
all applicants will be notified

winners," said Barton.

enues exceeding their costs.
("We do not make enough
money in fees to pay one em-
ployee.") Consider all the essen-
tial functions that would cease
if this principle were applied
throughout our county govern-
ment. What would happen to the
sheriff's department? The coun-
ty jail? The .elections office?
Would the fees generated by the
county clerk's office cover the
costs of all its services?.
Consideration of the "cost
effectiveness" issue would not
be complete without discussing
-the fact that Liberty County's
Tax Collector Carol Strickland
is taking the initiative to better
serve her citizens by providing
driver's license servicing. She is
doing so in the face of the same
considerations you cite as justi-
fication for ceasing this service
and .despite obstacles that in-
clude the limited resources of a
smaller county, and the need for
training for her and her staff in a
sen ice the\ have never provid-
ed before. However, wouldn't it
be more "cost effective" for the
Calhoun County Tax Collector's
,office to continue this service
\\hen its employees already
habe knowledge and experience
in driver's license processing
and when the "roll-out" of new


procedures will occur at estab-
lished offices, first? With your
decision have we lost our status
as an "established office?"
In your notice to citizens an-
nouncing the cessation of driv-
er's license services (Calhoun-
Liberty Journal dated February
23, 2005), published only five
days before its effective date,
you incidentally refer to security
concerns as justification for your
decision. It's my understanding
that these security concerns re-
late to equipment and procedur-
al changes that are largely being
driven by our country's newly
established Homeland Security
program. If our federal govern-
ment has identified driver's li-
cense processing as important
to national security by aiding
in the identification of "persons
of interest" or other threats to
our national security, then can't
these objectives most effectively
be accomplished close to home,.
by an office staffed by persons
who recognize and even know
so many of our citizens? I am
concerned that these security
concerns were not appropriately
factored into and weighted in
reaching your decision, and that
had they been, you would have
arrived at a different decision.
You further justify your de-

cision by saying that the re-
sponsibility of driver's licenses
limits the time your staff needs
to "adequately provide the oth-
er services to the citizens of
Calhoun County in an effective
manner." I'm not familiar with
all the services currently being
provided by the Tax Collector's
Office, but in our conversation
.you mentioned fishing license
issuance as one of the those ser-
vices. I'm not minimizing the
importance of fishing licensing,
nor do I know whether it is, as
driver's license servicing was, a
discretionary service being pro-
vided by your office. However,
I hope that in deciding between
the services you will continue to
provide and those to eliminate,
that you consider the number of
citizens impacted with your de-
cisions. To use fishing licensing
as an example, virtually all fish-
ermen require driver's licenses,
but not all drivers require fishing
license. While fishing licensing.
may not be a discretionary ser-
vice of your office, my point is
that if provided .services need
to be pared down or eliminated,
perhaps there are less essential
functions that driver's license
servicing that should be elimi-
nated first.
As for the "space" problems
you cite as further justification
for your decision, I credit you and
the county with the wherewithal
to solve what must be a recur-
ring, but hardly insurmountable,
problem for our county govern-
ment.
As I have said, Mrs. Burkett,
I believe that you can credit your


long association with the tax col-
lector's office and not campaign
promises for your election. Even
so, had your campaign promises
included distinguishing yourself
as the only county tax collector
eliminating driver's license ser-
vicing among the 27 or 28 tax
collectors in the state currently
providing that service, I believe
that we would have a different
tax collector today.
Thank you, Mrs. Burkett, for
reconsidering this matter. I trust
that upon reflection you will re-
sume this long-relied upon ser-
vice to the citizens of Calhoun
County and live up to the expec-
tations of the many who support-
ed you in your election.

from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Florida's 2004 boating statis-
tics are out, and again they are
sobering.
The number of registered
boats in Florida soared to
982,907 in 2004, compared to
978,225 in 2003. Boating fatal-
ities jumped to 68 in 2004 from
64 in 2003. In fact, fatality
numbers have increased slowly
since 2000 when Florida had its
lowest number of boating fatali-
ties in many years.
Monroe County reported the
highest number of accidents
and injuries, 98 and 57 respec-
tively. Pinellas County reported
- the highest number of fatalities
with seven. Palm Beach Coun-
ty reported the highest property
damage figures at '$8.69 mil-
lion, including one incident that
accounted for $8 million of that
total. The second-highest prop-
erty damage occurred in Miami-
Dade County with $1.2 million.
Even the good news wasn't
really good. The statistic that
recreational boating accidents
dipped to 743 from 1,005 in
2003 reflects a change in the
amount of damage an accident
has to involve before it counts.
In 2003, an accident had to in-
volve $500 damage to be in-
cluded in the statistics. They
had to involve $2,000 in dam-.
age to make the cut in 2004 due
to a change in the law.
Statistics indicate experi-
enced boaters may fall prey
to a false sense of security. In
fact, more than half the boat
operators involved in fatal boat-
ing accidents last year had more
than 100 hours of boat opera-
tion experience.

FWC offering grants

for boating projects

The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
is gearing up to dole out $2 mil-
lion under the Florida Boating
Improvement Program (FBIP)..
The/ FBIP provides funding
through competitive grants to
support 'recreational boating
and boating-related activities
on Florida's coastal and/or in-
land waters.
Eligible program participants
include Florida's municipal and
county Ngoemments. The dead-
line for submitting grant appli-
cations is June 10.
In 2004, the FBIP awarded
over $1.9 million in grants for
19 projects statewide.

victim is not a child or adoles-
cent. He's a 22- to 50-year-old
male with many hours of expe-
rience in operating a vessel. In
most cases, if he sustained an
injury, it was not life-threat-
ening. If he' did not survive
the accident, most likely he
drowned, because he thought
it uncomfortable, unbecom-
ing or unnecessary to wear a
life jacket even if he couldn't
swim. Drowning continued to
be the leading cause of death in
Florida's boating accidents (65
percent).
. FWC boating safety officials
and officers encourage boat-
ers to consider life jackets to
be similar to seatbelts when it
comes to their life-saving po-
tential. New types of inflat-
able life jackets especially the
waist-pack variety are light-
weight and hardly noticeable
when worn.
'It simply makes sense to
wear one when you're on the
water," said FWC Capt. Richard
Moore. "It's like the seatbelt in
your car. If you aren't wearing
it when you find yourself a few
seconds from a collision, you
may have waited too late."
Also, excessive alcohol use
continued to be the leading
cause, of boating fatalities in
2004. The effects of alcohol
may be even greater on boat
operators than vehicle opera-
tors because the combination of
wave action, hot sun and physi-
cal exertion from being on the
water compounds the influence
alcohol consumption can have
on people.
"As with cars on land, it's
always best for boats to be op-
erated by someone who hasn't
been consuming alcoholic bev-
erages," Moore said. "Desig-
nated drivers can save lives on
boats, just like they do on high-
ways."
* Moore said other suggestions
for having safe experiences on
Florida's. waters include taking
a boating safety course, filing a
float plan with a friend or rela-
tive each time you take to, the
water and making sure you have
the-proper safety equipment in
working order. For boat op-
erators age 21 or younger, the
boater safety course is a require-
ment not merely a suggestion
- for legally operating a vessel
with 10 or more horsepower in
Florida.

IHAND-PIKED QUALITY Spring azalea care


There is one form-of hope which is never unwise, and
which certainly does not diminish with the increase of
knowledge. In that form it-changes its name, and we call
it patience. Edward Bulwer-Lytton

Evergreen azaleas are sig-
nature plants in southern land-
scapes. A sure sign of spring
in our area are the masses of
spectacular azalea blooms. To
ensure that your azaleas will re-
main healthy and vigorous, it's
important to give them proper
care.
. Azaleas perform best in areas
of filtered sunlight. Their shal-
low root system and low toler-
ance to poor soil drainage makes
site selection and placement
important. Since many valu-
able shade trees were lost during
the hurricane, some previously
shaded azaleas are now exposed
to full sun. Azaleas that are ex-
posed to direct sunlight all day
or a hot western exposure may
be more susceptible to problems.
Under high light situations,
plants may become stunted, lose
foliage, become covered with li-
chen and are more susceptible to
lace bugs.
It's going to be very tempting


by Theresa Friday,
Extension Horticultural
Agent, Santa Rosa County.

to move azaleas this spring. But,
if at all possible, wait. Fall is the
best time to transplant.
Two of the more important
steps in ensuring healthy pro-
ductive azaleas are proper prun-
ing and correct fertilization. The
best time to prune and fertilize is
right after the flowers fade.
Azaleas that have plenty of
room to grow do not require a
lot of pruning and form beauti-
ful rounded, layered canopies.
However, if your azalea is out-
growing its space, some prun-
ing may be necessary. There are
several different pruning tech-
niques than can be used. Just
remember, to ensure that you
have beautiful blooms next year,
do not heavily prune azaleas af-
ter early June.

maintain some of its natural
form, then use a combination of
heading and thinning cuts. To
reduce shrub height make se-
lective heading cuts. Heading
cuts remove branches back to a
healthy bud or another branch.
Thinning cuts, reduce the shrub's
density and allows light to pene-
trate the shrub encouraging inte-
rior growth. With a thinning cut,
branches are generally removed
back to ground level.
If you need to drastically re-
duce the size of your azaleas,
you can cut all the stems back
to about 6 to 18 inches above
the ground. This rejuvenation
technique can be successful if
done right after blooming. This
allows sufficient time for new
growth to mature and harden off
for winter. The advantage to this
method is-that the work is quick,
decision making is minimal, and
the "new" shrub that will emerge
should be uniform in growth
habit or can easily be corrected.
The disadvantage is that you run
the risk of a plant dying.
Azaleas also benefit from
spring fertilization. A good
fertilization program for these
shrubs is based on three factors.
First, azaleas thrive in acid soil.
Second, they are easily injured
by moderate to high fertilizer
applications. And lastly, they
have low nutritional require-
ments compared to many other
plants. Therefore, it's best to
avoid the standard fertilizer and
use a special "Azalea-Camellia"
fertilizer.
Follow the label directions
carefully and apply the fertilizer
to the azalea's root zone. Spread
the fertilizer on the soil or mulch
surface. Since azalea roots are
very shallow, you can damage
roots by trying to work the fertil-
izer into the soil.
Tip of the Week: Azalea
leaf gall is a fungus that causes
thickened, fleshy and distorted
leaves. To prevent an infestation
next year, be sure to pull or clip
off the galls and destroy them. If
left, they will eventually fall to
the ground where the fungus car-
ries over until next spring.

tial Horticulture Extension Agent

Fraud alert issued for 'Corporate Compliance Center'


TALLAHASSEE Attor-
ney General Charlie Crist has
issued a fraud alert for Florida
businesses warning of a scheme
in which they receive a solicita-
tion for funds, supposedly from
the Florida Secretary of State's
Office. The solicitation by the
"Corporate Compliance Cen-
ter" (CCC) requests payment of
a $100 fee in accordance with
Florida- Statutes. CCC is not
affiliated with the Secretary of
State's Office in any way.
The statute cited by CCC
does govern requirements for
businesses to keep annual min-
utes, but does not require that
these minutes not to mention
a $100 fee be submitted to
any outside entity including the
Secretary of State's Office. Ac-
cording to complaints received,
several readers of this solicita-
tion believe this is a valid re-
quirement. As part of the scam,
businesses are asked to submit





She was transported to TMH

ter.
*Carrie, who is a senior at
Liberty County High School,
is the daughter of school board
member James Flowers and'his
wife, Mary. Carrie is the young-
est of the Flowers' three children.
Her sister, April, is 27 and her
brother, Bradley, is 23.
"Her brain is O.K.,, she htas
use of her arms and her lungs
are bruised," her mother said
after Carrie underwent a five-
Hour surgery Monday morning.
"We're just hoping for the best"
she said, explaining that the lower
part of Carrie's spinal cord was
severed in the crash. leaving her
paralyzed.
She said her daughter would be
fitted with a back brace Tuesday.
"We don't know when she's com-
ing home," she said, speculating
that it would probably be in about
two weeks. Carrie is currently in
the neurointensive care unit.
Many of Carrie's friends from
school gathered at the hospital
Monday. "I took a few at a time
in to see her," said her mother,
noting that the family has appre-
ciated the community's response
to their family crisis. "The out-
pouring has been great. Everyone
has just been very supportive."

the minutes and a check made
payable to CCC.
"Businesses are encouraged
to be alert for this type of scam,"
said Crist. "The solicitations
appear to be authentic, but are
nothing more than a sham. Any-
one who might question whether
an agency of the government
can require the payment of funds


sbPWfo a 8m pW car. The Wotifne ut ta


should contact that agency be-
fore writing a check."
In this case, the address pro-
vided for the Corporate Com-
pliance Center was 400 Capital
Circle, Suite 18-403, Tallahas-
see, FL 32301. That location is
a local United Parcel Service
(UPS) Store, from which mail
was forwarded unopened to an


address in California.
An investigation revealed that
similar acts occurred in Arizona
and California in 2002.
Any business owner who
believes he has been a victim
should call the Attorney Gen-
eral's Fraud Hotline toll free at
1-866-9-NO-SCAM (866-966-
7226).
