Darrel "Doobie" Hayes remains hospitalized in Tallahassee


School board member run over


by farm tractor, cut by bush hog


-



A harsh lesson

on the effects of

drinking & driving
The tragedies that result from drinking and driving
were vividly illustrated last week at the LCHS athletic
. field when students and community members
came together to present the aftermath of a mock
accident caused by driver under the influence of
alcohol. ABOVE: Ashlie Parrish, who portrayed the
intoxicated driver, is shown going through the paces
bf a roadside sobriety test. It wasn't as easy as she
might have thought after she donned special goggles
that simulate the effects of alcohol.

A Bristol couple credit
the first aid training their
son received in his Jr.
ROTC class with guiding
his efforts to help when his
father was run over by a
farm tractor last week.
Darrel "Doobie"
Hayes, 43, had three deep
gashes in his groin, broke
his kneecap and injured his
shoulder in the April 13
accident, which left him
covered in lacerations and
bruises.
"I got a lot of hurt on
me," he said, speaking
from his hospital bed in
the surgical intensive care
unit at Tallahassee Memo-
rial Hospital Monday. His
wife, Cathy, said it was the
first day since the accident
he was able to sit up.
The couple call their
16-year-old son Jason a
hero for his efforts to care

for his father when he was
hurt. Jason stemmed the
blood flow by applying
pressure to the wounds and
kept his father from los-
ing consciousness while
waiting for an ambulance
to arrive.

Hayes, a Liberty Coun-
ty School Board member


who operates both a yard
care business and a bar-
becue restaurant, had fin-
ished one job that morning
when he decided to have a
late lunch. Afterwards, he
decided to wait 30 minutes
until school was out so he
could pick up his son Ja-
son to help him work that
afternoon at a home north


of Rock Bluff near the
Gadsden County line.
He and his crew, includ-
ing his son and two helpers
who were mowing and
running a weedeater, were
about to wrap up the after-
noon's work at the home
of Felton Matthews when
something went wrong.

Two suspended after altercation

on bus; dad wants charges filed


Smoke alarm awakens family

as block home burns Tuesday
Firefighters found flames shooting out of the windows when they responded to
a call on Hugh Cummerford Road, north of County Road 275 near Altha around
12:30 a.m.Tuesday. Several Calhoun County fire departments responded after
the single-story concrete block home of Mark and Cindy Grimes caught fire.
Fire Marshal Jason Roberts said Cindy Grimes was awakened by a smoke
detector and got her two children out. Her husband, Mark, was out of town
that night. The family lost most of their possessions but were able to save
two family pets a dog and a-harnster according to Roberts. He said the
blaze appears to be accidental and originated in the kitchen area.

Two Tolar Middle School students
have been suspended for five days and
barred from riding the bus for 10 days
following an altercation on a school bus
earlier this month.
The victim's father says he is still
looking for answers into how it could
have happened and he is -hoping that an
investigation being conducted by the
Liberty County Sheriff's Department
will result in charges being filed against
the two boys.
Todd Lee of Bristol said his 11-year-
old son, Cody, was attacked soon after he
got on the bus to go home April 7. He
said one 15-year-old and another boy -
both much larger than his son began
hitting and punching the sixth-grader.
"They hit me in the stomach several
times, my arm several times, my face,
banged my head against the window,"
Cody said.
After being seen by a local doctor,
Cody was taken to the emergency room at
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, where he
was treated for multiple hits to the head,
chest, back and arms.
The incident was caught on the bus
surveillance video. Lee is upset that the
bus driver didn't do something to stop


the fight. "They actually worked him over
pretty good, unfortunately, for the length
of time it happened. My understanding is
the bus driver never saw it, which is kind
of hard for me to believe," he said.
According to Lee, the attack lasted 20
minutes. Tolar School Principal Dwayne
Barber, who reviewed the video with
Lee, said it appears the attack occurred
over a five to seven minute time span and
added, "It was not a continuous beating."
He said that Cody's stop is the second on
the bus route.
"The kids were goofing off and got
carried away with it," Barber said, who
reviewed the surveillance tape numerous
times. "The safety of our students is
a major concern of ours. We took ap-
propriate action that we felt was fair and
severe," he said. "I did a full investigation
and the kids were punished." He added
that depending on how things go, he ma\
extend the bus suspension to the rest of
the school year.
"I talked to one of the boys and he
admitted that Cody didn't provoke them,"
Lee said. "He said 'we were just play-
ing,'" according to Lee. "Well, the doctor
sure didn't think so. She said it looked
like a grown-up had beat him up," he said,

Hayes was pulling a bush hog
with his Massey Ferguson farm
tractor when he ran into some
grape vines. When he stood up
to pull apart the strong tangle of
vines, his knee apparently hit the
gear shift, which threw him off.
The tractor seat Hayes had recent-
ly installed then spun around and
hit the bush hog switch and shut
down the power to the blades.
Hayes fell down between the
two rear wheels of the tractor.
"It spun around on top of me and
then it ran back over me with
the bush hog," he said. "I stood
up and looked down...blood was
pouring all over the ground."
The blades of the bush hog dug
into him. "It wasn't spinning very
fast, but it cut him three times,"
Jason said. "It would have cut
him to pieces if it'd been on."
Jason heard his father's calls
for help, ran around the house and
found a scene he could only call
"horrifying."
The homeowner's son, Robert
Garcia, called for an ambulance
and returned to help Jason. "We
took him over to the grass and
realized he was bleeding really,
really bad," Jason said. They
cut Hayes' sweatpants apart and
stuffed the material into his hem-
orrhaging wounds. A towel was
used to apply pressure in an effort
to slow the loss of blood.
Although he lost his vision for
a minute, Hayes managed to stay
conscious. "We were talking to
him to keep him awake and were
giving him water. At one time,
he felt he was going to black out
but we kept him conscious," said
Jason. "It was mighty scary,
mighty scary," Hayes said, add-
ing, "I just knew I wasn't going
to make it."
When the ambulance arrived,
Hayes was rushed to the landing
site at Hosford School where he
was picked up by LifeNet heli-
copter.
Doctors have operated on
Hayes' injured knee, putting in
three screws. His family knows
he has a long recovery ahead, but
he's able to talk a bit lightheart-
edly about that terrifying day. "I
did two things that day that I'd
never done before," he said. "I
got run over by a tractor and I
rode in a helicopter."
Despite the severity of his
injuries, he's keeping things in
perspective and commented that
with several other local people
currently at the hospital, "it seems
like we got half of Liberty County
here."
He's appreciative of the many
calls and visits he's received,
noting Monday, "I've already had
five area ministers come by and
check on me. I can't say enough
about Liberty County people.
They're mighty special."

Master Sgt. Curtis Milton of
the Jr. ROTC program at Liberty
County High School called Jason
an "outstanding student." Part
of the cadets' training includes
response to medical emergencies
*''* '*'*'*.tt '****'**


and how to deal with shock and
control blood loss, he said.

Hayes has been in the yard
care business for more than a
decade and he and his family
operate Doobie Brothers Barbe-
cue, a restaurant at State Road 20
and Pea Ridge Road in Bristol.
Hayes says he's not worried about
business while he's recuperating,
explaining, "I've got some good
help and the restaurant's thriv-
ing." He added, "They did three
catering jobs this weekend and
survived without me. I've got
faith in my big brother Danny
and my cooks. They'll be there
for me."
His yard care business will


continue on as well, as his crew
continues to take care of his cus-
tomers, he said.
Now he, his wife and son
will focus their attention on his
recovery and upcoming physi-
cal therapy. Monday, Cathy
Hayes said they were waiting for
her husband to be moved from
intensive care into orthopedics
and added, "We're doing much
better."
The family has had little time
to recover from a tragedy three
months earlier. Jason's cousin,
14-year-old Robert "Scooter"
Lewis died of injuries received
in a Jan. 14 collision in Calhoun
County. His father, Robert Lewis
Sr., was seriously injured.


Intoxicated man arrested

trying to share his news
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A man apparently unable to contain his excitement that his dog
had just had puppies was charged with disorderly intoxication after
he tried to share the good news with his neighbors by banging on
their doors.
When Sgt. Adam Terry of the Calhoun County Sheriff's Depart-
ment arrived on the scene around 7 p.m. last Wednesday, he found
a man beating on a door and screaming something unintelligible.
James Elmer Young, 45, was "highly intoxicated and could barely
stand up," according to Terry.
Neighbors reported that Young had tried to enter their homes in
the Pine Island neighborhood. One man said he wouldn't let Young
inside because he knew he had been drinking. A woman stated that
Young kept hitting her door and screaming, frightening her young
children.
When Terry asked Young what he was trying to do, he replied that
he wanted to tell everyone about the 12 puppies that had been born
at his home.
An additional charge was filed against Young when it was learned
he was in violation of his Community Control status.

Visiting speaker gets kids motivated
Motivational speaker Michael Walden visited Liberty County High School Monday to give kids
a memorable talk about making choices in life and following their dreams. Walden, who has
appeared in a couple of movies and is currently working on a film featuring Dwayne "The Rock"
Johnson, got the kids' attention as he pulled a few onto the floor to make a point during his
lecture. He reminded kids of the importance of not drinking or smoking, telling them, "You only
have one body." He stressed the importance of education and urged them to follow their dreams
but also be willing to put in some hard work. The program was sponsored by Students Working
Against Tobacco (SWAT). PHOTOS BY DARREN EVANS


adding, "It was just pure bully-
ing."
, Lee feels that the two who hit
his son are getting special treat-
ment and had he not pushed the
issue, they would have gotten off


lightly. "I think there's a lot that
goes on in our school system that
gets covered up," he said. "I think
things got a little bit too damn
political and until our county
stands as a whole and stops it,


next time the kid involved might
not be so lucky."
He added, "My question to the
county is: What else has hap-
pened in that school that we don't
know about?"

Ss LATE NIGHT LAUGHS
i -_ A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS
_----- BY LATE NIGHT TELEVISION HOSTS.


Filibuster attack a bad move


The Republicans are about
to step in it, in a big way. Sena-
tor Frist, the Senate Majority
Leader, is threatening to change
Senate rules and eliminate the
filibuster rule.
The Constitution states that
both the House and Senate can
establish the rules by which
they operate. The filibuster rule,
Senate Rule 22, gives members
the power to obstruct legislation
merely by threatening to use the
procedure. To stop a filibuster,
60 senators must vote to invoke
cloture, a rule that imposes time
limits on further discussion of the
issue at hand.
The filibuster rule is used by
the minority party in the Senate
as a check and balance against the
majority party. The rule has been
used by both parties, and there
have been previous attempts by
both parties to eliminate the fili-
buster rule. So far, neither party
has been successful in eliminat-
ing the filibuster rule.
The issue at the moment is
President Bush's judicial nomi-
nees. Bush has nominated 215
people for judgeships. Of that
number, 205 have been con-
firmed. The Democrats are fili-
bustering the other 10 nominees
for a variety of reasons.
President Bush has a 95%
acceptance rate for his judicial
nominees, much higher than that
for President Clinton.
I watched President Bush ad-
dress the Society of Newspaper
Editors this past week. During
the question and answer session,
Bush made it clear that he wanted
his judicial nominees to be con-
firmed by the Senate. Bush wants
100% acceptance of his judicial
nominees.
President Bush is attempting
to pay back the Christian con-
servatives who helped him win a

and writer with an extensive back-
ground in domestic and foreign policy
issues. He lives in Shalimar, Fla.

second term. The Christian con-
servatives believe that they own
Bush, and it's payback time.
There is no GOP heir appar-
ent for Bush. Senator Frist sees
himself in that role in the 2008
presidential election. Frist is po-
sitioning himself to be the poster
boy for the Christian conserva-
tives in the Republican Party.
The Christian conservatives
want to pack the courts with
judges that are sympathetic to
their views of moral standards
for America. Overturning Roe v.
Wade is a goal of the right wing.
It is another battle in the culture
wars.
In an attempt to ingratiate
himself with the Christian con-
servatives, Senator Frist has
agreed to join a small group of
prominent Christian conservative
leaders in an April 24 telecast
that will portray Democrats as
"against people of faith" because
the Democrats are blocking Pres-
ident Bush's judicial nominees.
President Bush isn't the first
president to attempt to pack the
courts with sympathetic judges.
President Thomas Jefferson, in
his second term, went after a
judge that made rulings which
Jefferson didn't like. Jefferson's
own party reined him in. .
President Franklin Roosevelt,
also in his second term, tried to
pack the courts with judges that
would be sympathetic to his
views. Roosevelt's own party, the
Democrats, stopped his efforts.
One of the reasons that Ameri-


can democracy works well is
the separation of powers. The
Executive, the Legislative and
the Judicial branches have equal
standing according to the Con-
stitution.
In my view, it is not a good
thing for the President and the
control of Congress to reside in
one party. The Democrats con-
trolled the presidency and the
Congress for a number of years.
Not good.
The pendulum has swung
the other way. The Republicans
and conservatives control the
presidency and the Congress.
Not good. But the Republicans
aren't satisfied with controlling
two of the three branches, they
want the Judicial branch in their
camp also.
With a Republican president,
an almost 100% rubber stamp
Congress and the judiciary in
their pocket, the result is a dic-
tatorship. There are no more
checks and balances.
While we don't always like
judicial rulings, a cornerstone of
our democracy is that judges are
free to rule as the law dictates.
If the judicial branch is slanted
toward either party, then De-
mocracy, as we know it, has a
black eye.
I don't think that Senator Frist
will get the votes to do away with
the filibuster rule as it pertains to
confirming judges. Senator John
McCain, a moderate Republican,
has said that he will not vote to
end the filibuster rule. Fortu-
nately, there are other sensible
Republicans in the Senate.
I think that Senator Frist's
efforts to polish his apple with
Christian conservatives will be
something that he will regret.
Frist should recognize that no
political party has a monopoly on
faith, religion and morals.


On tax day, the government takes 40% of what you make. The
other 60% is taken by the gas station. JAY LENO

The makers of Bowflex have been ordered to pay a $1 million
penalty because some people were injured, while using the
machine. The company was shocked, and said, "You mean,
somebody actually used their Bowflex?" CONAN O'BRIEN

MSNBC is predicting that the archbishop of Bombay could
be the next pope. Bombay? Even the job of pope is being
outsourced to India now! -JAY LENO

The Maple Sugar Makers Association in Vermont is sending
hundreds of gallons of genuine maple syrup over to our troops
in Iraq. Yeah, nothing hits the spot on a 150-degree Iraqi day like
delicious maple syrup... Soldiers say the syrup will go towards
the creation of WMDs Waffles of Mass Deliciousness.
DENNIS MILLER

President Bush threw out the first pitch at the Washington
Nationals first game at RFK Stadium. The umpire called it a
ball and Bush appealed it to his friends at the Supreme court
and they made it a strike. JAY LENO

The Pentagon is developing a robot that can perform surgeries
by remote control. Surgeries by remote control! This will allow
doctors to operate from as far away as the ninth hole.
CRAIG FERGUSON

There was a very scary moment in Washington, D.C. when
Capitol Police tackled and dragged away a desperate man
with two suitcases. He stationed himself in front of the Capitol
building, stayed there for an hour, and demanded to get into
the White House. You know, I think John Kerry's starting to
lose it. JAY LENO


It was reported that House Majority Leader Tom DeLay took
several ethically questionable golf trips paid for by foreign
lobbyists and that his wife and daughter were paid $500,000
from his own political action committee. DeLay referred to
the allegations as 'just another seedy attempt by the liberal
media to embarrass me with my own actions, words and illegal
doings.' TINA FEY on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update

It's spring time. It was so nice in Washington Tom DeLay was
accepting cash in the park. DAVID LETTERMAN

You know how the pope is chosen? The cardinals all vote and
then the ballots are burned. You know -- the same thing we did
in Florida back in 2000. -JAY LENO

In Washington D.C. the feds jumped a guy who was behaving
suspiciously and carrying two large suitcases. Turns out it kind
of had a funny ending: he's not a terrorist and the suitcases
were full of cash for Tom Delay. DAVID LETTERMAN

Tom DeLay is in a little bit of trouble. He says he didn't know
that lobbying groups were illegally funding the trips he took all
over the world. Don't you love this? When ever these guys are
running for office they always tell us how smart they are, how
knowledgeable they are, how they know what's going on. As
soon as they get caught doing something wrong, 'I'm an idiot.
I didn't know what was going on.' JAY LENO

Someone gave President Bush an iPod and President Bush
asked, 'where can I get one for the other eye?'
CRAIG FERGUSON

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is going to be driving
the pace car next month at the Indianapolis 500. How cool is
that? He said going around and around in circles will be just like
briefing President Bush all over again. JAY LENO

Executives at the Fox News Channel announced they're
going start a Fox News financial channel. Yeah, the Fox News
financial channel will be different because whenever the stock
market goes down, they'll blame it on Hillary Clinton.
CONAN O'BRIEN

It took almost a week, but they finally buried the pope. It would
have been faster, but as of last month, no one dies now without
permission of Congress. BILL MAHER

GOD COMMUNICATE
THROUGH PRAYER
Text: John 16:5-16
How does God communicate His
will? God called Moses from a burning
bush. He spoke to the Israelites from a
mountain aflame with fire and billows
of smoke. He spoke to Gideon through
an angel. He spoke to Jacob through
a dream. He called David through a
prophet. He spoke to Elijah with a still,
small, voice.
God is still God. He is the same
today as He was yesterday. He never
changes. I would never limit God in
how He can or will communicate to
His people. He can and does do what-
ever He wants.
Yet, I have never seen a burning
bush like Moses saw. I have never heard
a voice from heaven. I have never seen
an angel. But God speaks to me every
day. He speaks to me when I pray.
What is prayer? Prayer, simply
put, is communication with God. It is
petition, thanksgiving, adoration, and
praise. It is seeking God's face and His
will. It is submitting to God's will. It
involves pouring our hearts out to God.
It also involves listening.
Meditation is an extension of prayer.
It is not mystical. It is simply listen-
ing to the voice of God as He speaks
to your heart. It can be as simple as
pondering the guilt we have over sin. It
can be an intense, soul searching, gut-
wrenching quest for God's guidance in
matters of utmost importance.
The Holy Spirit convicts us when
we pray. He makes us feel guilty over
sin. He gives us a compelling urge to
do right. He makes the reality of judg-
ment clear. It is through prayer that we
learn to recognize the voice of Christ
in the Holy Spirit. God is still speaking
today. Are you listening?

of noted national authorities that
includes ethicists, educators and

fine, differentiate and demon-
strate' the interrelationships be-*


tween values, ethics and law in

ine how cultural differences may
influence ethical choices. In ad-
dition, the social perspectives of
medical ethics and how various

WIHA ETE O H EIO


Hall family says,
To the editor:
The best place in the world to live is
this area of Florida.
My late husband's great-great-
grandrfiother bought 40 acres from the
state in 1897. The Halls have lived and
died on this land for the last 108 years.
All of the actual owners have died on the
land. My late husband's, Polan Hall, father
raised 12 children on the farm. Polan and
I raised two.
When Polan got sick in the mid-80s,
there was so much love and support given
to our family we could have not made it


'This is the best place in the world'


without it. He lost both legs, but never
felt sorry for himself. Both emotional and
financial support was lovingly given.
Less than one year after he died, our
son Tom had four bypasses. So much love
and help was shown to our family. Some
helped get his crop planted that year. This
would not have happened in any other
place.
A little over a year ago, Tom suddenly
died of a heart attack. Within five minutes,
my house filled with friends wanting to
help.
This has been a very hard year for our


family, but with the-love and prayers we
have made it. We still need your prayers.
Our family/reads so much negative
things that happen. We want everyone to
stop arid count the blessings to be able to
live where everyone pulls together to, help
their neighbors.
We may not always agree with things but
everyone pulls together to help one another.
This doesn't happen everywhere.;
We still need prayers from everyone,
we are so grateful to live here.
The Oscar Hall, Polan Hall
and Tom Hall families

more trouble they can make for me, the
more powerful they feel. It's real big to
take advantage of someone with a bad
heart problem and numerous other life
threatening problems. *
These charges go on my record,


Whatever is done or said to you, just
keep your mouth shut and roll over and
play dead because you have no rights. That
is only for certain people.
Some can call and the deputy is there
quick as a wink. But, when you try to say


And usually it's the ones making the
false complaints that are ignorant and in
the long run they will see how foolish
they appear.

s Man charged after claiming probation
f- officer was driving before accident
a by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
le A 22-year-old man who said he had recently been released from
prison is facing new charges after he stopped to talk with a deputy
investigating an accident scene last week in Calhoun County. Officers
were examining the site where a 1999 Buick with front end damage
was abandoned in a ditch.
Deputy Nic Keller was assisting the Florida Highway Patrol on Jim
Durham Road around 2:52 a.m. April 13 when George Jason Holton
drove up. Riding with him were two 16-year-old girls. As they talked,
the deputy noticed the strong odor of alcohol coming from Holton.
Holton said the three of them were in the car that had wrecked ear-
lier, but stated that he was not the driver. Instead, he told the deputy
that his parole officer was the one behind the wheel.
Holton said that both he and his parole officer, William Stacey,
had been drinking. He said Stacey was driving him and the two
juveniles to one of the girl's homes. The girls both gave statements
supporting his story.
e* After a computer check was run on Holton, officers discovered that
he was wanted on an outstanding battery warrant and that his driver's
license had been suspended.
Holton's car was towed from the scene, the two teenagers were
driven home and he was booked into the county jail after unsuccess-
fully attempting to pass a sobriety test, according to Keller's report.

Students from Chipola

invited to go to Spain

for a summer of study
MARIANNA Chipola College foreign language profes-
sor Dr. Mark Ebel invites current and future Chipola students to
study Spanish this summer in the country of Spain.
Dr. Ebel will lead an Intercultural Connections tour which will
include stops in Madrid, Granada and Malaga. The group also
will visit the Prado Museum (Madrid), Picasso Museum (Mal-
aga), Alhambra (Granada), Plaza Ma or and Puerta del Sol de
Madrid, Albaicin and Bibrrambla (Granada), and Cathedrals in
Granada and Malaga. Students may also choose to attend a Fla-
menco Show and Bullfight preceded by cultural talks about these
two Spanish cultural phenomena. -
A group of six Chipola students already have registered the
four-hour course, "Spanish Language and Culture Study Abroad"
(SPN 2957), which Dr. Ebel will teach during the program. Ebel
reported that most of the students have never traveled outside of
the U.S. and that they chose Spain for the architecture and the
rich culture. The group will stay in Costa Del Sol, which, accord-
ing to Ebel, "Is one of the most desirable locations in Europe with
the best beaches on the Mediterranean."
The excited students cited varied reasons for making the trip.
"I'm a Spanish major, and I just can't wait to be introduced to a
new culture," said Jenny Barfield of Chipley. Marianna's Cody
Long said, "I look forward to seeing the architecture, history
and beautiful sites." Julie Chance of Bonifay, the mother of three
small children, admitted, "I've never had the opportunity to trav-
el. This is the chance of a lifetime to immerse myself in another
culture. I hope my kids will one day have the same opportuni-

by Christina Shuler
The first year of Tolar boys' base-
ball has slid to a successful end. Re-
flecting back, we asked Coach Eric
Willis a couple of questions about
the Tolar baseball team this year:
1. What was the highlight of the
season? His answer: The highlight
was when Jonathon Miller caught the
game winning catch in the last game
of the season against Port St. Joe.
2. What game was you favorite?
Answer: The game against Carra-
belle early in the season because we
played as a team.
3. Which game was the worst?
Answer: The second game of the sea-
son. I think it was the worst defeat of
the year.
4. Why did you want to coach
baseball? Because I played as a kid,
and it is the most exciting game.
5. Did you play Baseball? Yes, in
Liberty County.
6. What do you think of this year's
team? I think that we continued to
get better and that's what its really
all about.

Second grade class constructs an 'Eagle's Nest'


Hosford's second grade
classes have been working on a
thematic unit about America's
history. For several weeks the
students have learned about how
America was formed and the
important, events that shaped
its history. One of the sections
of this. unit included learning
about the symbols that represent
America. The students were
really involved and especially
loved learning about the bald ea-
gle. Included in the study about
the bald eagle the students con-
structed an "eagle's nest" out of
a frame of chicken wire, sticks,
twigs, straw: and moss. They
weire amazed that an average'
eagle's nest could be 'sevei fe6t
deep 'and seven feet wide. The
students also got an opportunity


to see a real eagle's nest on a trip ed "eagle's nest" and the proud
to Torreya State Park. Pictured, students that constructed it.

Chipola addresses four-year funding issues


MARIANNA Since suc-
cessfully implementing its
four-year teacher education
programs, Chipola College has
faced accreditation issues with
the Southern Association of Col-
leges and Schools (SACS), but
the college recently passed with
flying colors a rigorous review
by the Florida Department of
Education (FDOE).
Chipola College president Dr.
Gene Prough stated, "The process
of developing and implementing
Chipola's innovative Bachelor's
programs in Math and Biology
Education has been rigorous and
not without obstacles. In order
to provide additional opportu-
nities to local students, Chipola
has become one of the first com-
munity colleges in the nation to
offer four-year degrees. While
Chipola has maintained continu-
ous SACS accreditation since
1957, we have recently been of-
ficially notified that SACS has
questions concerning the avail-
ability and reporting of the state
funds necessary to operate our
innovative bachelor's degree
programs."
The problem stems from dif-
ficulty in reporting precisely
how the state will fund this new
category of higher education.
Chipola faced two complicated
political issues from the outset.
First, the idea of community col-
leges offering four-year degrees
was new and controversial. And,
this resistance created legislative
difficulties for Chipola and other
community colleges authorized
to offer four-year degrees. The
Florida Legislature was left with
the task of funding the new cat-
egory of post-secondary educa-
tion. Second, the Florida legis-
lature was still in session when
college officials were preparing
the initial SACS., application
in Spring of 2003. The college
relied on the best information


available regarding funding.
Because these programs are
new and innovative, the state
legislature is still working to de-
velop a funding formula. While
the state is committed to fund-
ing Chipola's baccalaureate pro-
grams, the inability to specify
an exact funding formula has
caused SACS to question the
College's reporting of actual
"funding in hand" for the new
programs. As a result of these
questions, Chipola College was
placed on one-year probation
at the December 2004 meeting
of the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools. Chipola
and four other baccalaureate-de-
gree-granting community col-
leges in the state are facing simi-
lar funding issues. Prough said,
"Florida's Community College
Chancellor, David Armstrong,
and Secretary of Education,
John Winn, have pledged their
support in helping Chipola to ad-
dress and resolve this issue."
Chipola remains accredited,
and the probation does not af-
fect academics, financial aid
or the transferability of credits.
Since the SACS action, Chipo-
la's Teacher Education Program
has been recommended for full
state approval following a site
visit by the Florida Department
of Education (FDOE) in March.
FDOE evaluated every aspect
of the campus and interviewed
many faculty, administrators,
and students. According to Dr.
Kitty Myers, Associate Vice
President for Baccalaureate Pro-
grams, "Team members were
very complimentary of the pro-
gram, personnel, and the cam-
pus. Chipola's teacher education
program successfully met all 19
rigorous standards to earn FDOE
approval. The FDOE team high-
lighted our well-designed cur-
riculum, field experiences, clini-
cal, and internship structure, and


students' knowledge of subject
matter. This is a significant event
in the history of Chipola because
this program will benefit our lo-
cal schools, our community, and
our students."'
Ten current Chipola students
are expected to complete Bach-
elor's degrees by August of this
year. All graduates are certified
to teach in Florida.
College officials received
written notification of the SACS
action in January. College rep-
resentatives met with SACS of-
ficials to clarify the issues. Fol-
lowing the meeting, the college
implemented an action plan to:
1.) ensure accuracy and integrity
in reporting funding; 2.) docu-
ment recurring state funding; 3.)
improve library resources and
services; 4.) establish and assess
student learning outcomes; and
5.) establish faculty responsi-
bility for curriculum, academic
performance standards and pro-
fessional performance review.
SACS approved Chipola's
accreditation as a Level II bac-
calaureate degree-granting insti-
tution in June of 2003. A SACS
Substantive Change Review
Committee reviewed the col-
lege's new Bachelor of Science
in Secondary Education Degree
(BSSE). Team members came
from four-year colleges and
universities in Virginia, Texas,
South Carolina, and Georgia.
The visiting SACS committee
acknowledged Chipola as a pio-
neer in the state in transitioning
from a community college to a
baccalaureate institution. They
suggested that Chipola officials
study colleges in other states that
have gone through similar sub-
stantive changes.
The committee also predicted
extensive changes in the culture
of the institution as it prepares to
add new programs in response to
community workforce needs and


Chipola to offer paramedic training program


MARIANNA--Chipola Col-
lege was recently approved to
offer a new Paramedic Training
Program.
Kathy Wheeler, Chipola Di-
rector of Health Science pro-
grams, said, "We are thrilled to
announce that the Florida Bureau
of Emergency Management Ser-
vices has awarded full approval
for our Paramedic Training Pro-
gram. This approval comes at
a time of dire need for trained
paramedics in our district as
well as surrounding districts."
James McMillan, a para-
medic with 11 years experience,
will serve as lead instructor in
the new program. Wheeler said,
"James is to be commended for
his professional direction and
composition of an excellent
Paramedic Program Curricu-
lum."
Application deadline for the
new program is April 22. Only
certified Emergency Medical
Technicians are eligible to en-

expressed confidence in Chipo-
la's ability to meet these future
challenges.
In 2001, the Florida Legisla-
ture passed a bill allowing com-
munity colleges to apply to offer
baccalaureate degrees. In June
2002 the Florida Board of Edu-
cation granted Chipola authority
to deliver Bachelor's degrees in
Secondary Education. Florida's
then Commissioner of Educa-
tion, Jim Horne,In August of
2003, the Chipola District Board
of Trustees voted to change the
name of the 57-year-old institu-
tion to Chipola College in prep-
aration for the B.S. programs. In
June of 2003 approval was grant-
ed by SACS for Chipola to offer
the four-year degrees. In May of
2002 the Florida Board of Edu-
cation gave Chipola the author-
ity to offer four-year degrees in
response to a critical shortage
of math and science teachers in
secondary schools.
In 2001, the Florida Legis-
lature earmarked $3 million in
startup funds for community
colleges to offer four-year pro-
grams. St. Petersburg Commu-
nity College was the first com-
munity college to be granted
permission to offer bachelor's
degrees in 2001.
The Florida Board of Educa-
tion in May 2002 adopted a plan
to offer four-year degrees in se-
lected disciplines on the campus-,
es of Chipola and Miami-Dade
Community Colleges. Chipola


and Florida State University
were directed to negotiate which
school would provide students
in the Chipola district access to
baccalaureate degrees in Busi-
ness Administration, Nursing
and Secondary Education. In
June 2002, Education Secretary
Jim Home granted Chipola the
authority to offer a bachelor's
degree in Secondary Math and
Science Education. Home said
he adopted Ghipola's proposal in
the interest of local students and
in response to the critical short-
age of math and science teachers
in Florida and in the nation. "The
Chipola approach was construct-
ed to provide greater program
delivery flexibility for commu-
nity members," Home said.
In June of 2003, accreditation
was granted by SACS for Chipo-
la to offer the four-year degrees.
In August of 2003, the Chipola
District Board of Trustees voted
to change the name of the 57-
year-old institution to Chipola
College. To help Chipola start
up the new programs, the col-
lege received $631was allocated
$333,000 from the 2003-04 state
in 2003-04. In January 2004
Chipola's first-ever Bachelor's
degree students began classes.
Ten of those students are ex-
pected to graduate by August as
certified teachers in Florida.

UF/IFAS and FAMU create website to help small farmers


LIVE OAK Small farm-
ers in Florida face a variety of
issues and challenges and with
less resources available to them
than larger farms, they can be
at a competitive disadvantage.
With small farms representing
over 90% of farms in Florida,
ensuring their success is vital to
the agriculture industry in the
state. That's why UF/IFAS and
FAMU have created a website
(http://smallfarms.ifas.ufl.edu)
that specifically addresses the
needs of small farmers.


"The website was developed
to make small farm informa-
tion accessible in one location,"
said Bob Hochmuth, the Multi-
County Agent at the UF/IFAS
North Florida Research and
Education Center in Suwannee
Valley. "Small farmers may be
seeking information on getting
started in farming or consid-
ering one of many alternative
enterprises and it is all pulled
together in one site to make the
search easy."
The website provides links


and other resources for small
farmers including, how to get
started, enterprise budgeting,
business planning, financing
grants, and much more. Farmers
using the site can select topics on
enterprises of special interest to
them, including aquaculture, cut
flowers, livestock, and organic
farming. Each topic includes
information on production, mar-
keting, and economics as well as
other appropriate links.
"What a fabulous resource,"
said Betty O'Toole, owner of


O'Toole's Herb Farm in Madi-
son, Fla. "Jim and I have found
that the IFAS small farm web-
page has become an invaluable
tool for our business. The site
is jammed packed with use-
ful information, quick and user
friendly, even for the computer
novices as we are."
Input from small farmers and.
allied organizations, identifying
issues critical to small farm-
ers, such as access to profitable
markets, business skills devel-
opment, accessible technical in-


formation, and alternative crops
and enterprises, was-used to help
design the site. Input from coun-
ties throughout Florida identified
the need for small farm educa-
tional programs to be developed.
The small farm website provides
information that farmers can em-
ploy to address these issues and
become more efficient in their
business.
For more information visit

The rose is a magnificent gar-
den plant and is often called the
"queen of the flowers." Unfor-
tunately, to keep many of them
prosperous a strict program of
spraying, fertilizing and prun-
ing is essential. However, if you
choose the right rose for the right
purpose and place it in the right
location, the payoff is well worth
the effort.
Roses are among some of the
most versatile plants in the land-
scape. Because of the wide va-
riety of growth habits and sizes,
roses are suitable for a range of
garden situations. Use them as
specimen plants, to cover a wall
or drape gracefully on a porch.
Roses can be grown in contain-
ers or be used as part of a shrub
border. Choosing the right rose
for your landscape situation is
the key to success.
With so many roses to choose


from, gardeners need to under-
stand their classification system.
Roses can generally be divided
into two groups: species and cul-
tivars. The cultivars are further
divided into old garden roses and
modem roses.
Species roses are usually de-

garden

scribed as those found grow-
ing in the wild. And if you are
looking for a lower maintenance
rose, then try a species rose. One
that is well known in mild cli-
mates for its vigorous growth,
its evergreen foliage and its usu-
ally thornless stems is the Lady
Banks rose (Rosa banksiae).
The Lady Banks rose origi-
nated in China. In 1807 it was
introduced to Kew, the Royal
Botanical Gardens in England.
It is named after Lady Dorothea
Banks, the wife of Sir Joseph
Banks, who was the director of
Kew and a distinguished bota-
nist.
The Lady Banks rose has
small, dark green, glossy foliage.
While some leaves may be lost
during the winter, these are ever-
green roses. Their clean, shiny
foliage is handsome throughout
the year and their spectacular
spring flower display is remark-
able.
Lady Banks roses typically
flower only once a year in early
spring. The flowers are in dense
clusters and are small, only about
one inch across. The flowers
come in four forms: white or
yellow, single or double. ,
The double yellow Lady
Banks rose (Rosa banksiae 'Lu-
tea') is probably the most popular
in this group of roses. It is said
to be the hardiest of the group.
This is a good rose for our area
because it is tough. It requires no
special insect and disease control
measures and actually appears to -
thrive with neglect. It withstands
full sun and partial shade and tol-
erates some salt spray.
Lady Banks roses are sprawl-
ing climbers and resist being re-
strained. It's best to give this one
plenty of room and let it ramble
on a structure. It's wonderful on
arbors, fences, and pergolas.
According to the Guinness
Book of World Records, the
largest tree bush in the world is
a Lady Banks rose. Growing in
Tombstone, Arizona it covers an
area of over 8,000 square feet.
Tip of the Week: House plants
could use some rejuvenation by
this time of year Most of them
are of tropical origin, preferring
higher humidity and warmer
temperatures than are present in
most homes during the winter.
By April many house plants,
though still green, are often sim-
ply in a survival mode. Help
them to overcome "cabin fe-
ver" by performing a few simple
tasks: gently wash their leaves
with a mild soap solution, move
them to a brighter location, repot
if necessary and give them a light ,'
fertilization.

FWC approves rule to manage


commercial blue crab fishery


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) has approved a rule
designed- to prevent overcapi-
talization of the commercial
blue crab fishery. by managing
the number of participants in
the fishery. The rule, recom-
mended by FWC's Blue Crab
Advisory Board, establishes a
blue crab limited entry endorse-
ment program that limits the to-
tal number of commercial blue
crab fishermen and allows each
qualified fisherman to use up to
an equal number of traps.
The new rules:
*Establish a hard crab en-
dorsement and a soft crab en-
dorsement, which can be asso-.
ciated with eitheran individual
or vessel saltwater products li-
cense (SPL).
*Establish qualifying and re-
qualifying criteria.
*Require trap tags and estab-
lish tag ordering criteria and a
replacement tag program. The
proposed annual fee for trap
tags is 50 cents per tag.
*Establish an appeals board
and criteria by which non-quali-
fying blue crab fishers could be
allocated traps.
*Establish the Blue Crab Ad-
Sisory Board by rule, and set
criteria for appointment to the
board.
*Prohibit the leasing or rent-
ing of endorsements, tags, or
traps, and establish endorse-
ment holder responsibilities.


The rule also specifies that
blue crab endorsements will be
transferable, and in order for a
person to enter the fishery, the
person must buy the endorse-
ment and trap tags as a package
from someone who is leaving
the fishery. The person must
also work no fewer than 14 days
fishing for blue crab on the en-
dorsement holder's vessel.
In order to qualify for a hard
crab endorsement, the rule
requires a minimum of 500
pounds of blue crab landings to
have been reported on any one
of a fishing entity's SPLs during
one of three qualifying license
years (2000-01, 2001-02, 2002-
03). An entity may endorse
multiple SPLs; however, any
additional SPL requires a mini-
mum of 7,500 pounds of blue
crab landings to qualify. The
proposed cost of this endorse-
ment fee is $125 (includes a $25
trap retrieval fee).
Each hard crab endorsement
entitles the owner to fish up
to 600 blue crab traps, and an
additional 400 traps offshore
in the Gulf of Mexico, per en-
dorsed SPL. A total of 150 soft
crabs per endorsed SPL may be
landed daily as bycatch. Fish-
ermen can maintain as many as


three shedding tanks without
possessing a soft crab endorse-
ment.
In order to qualify for a soft
crab endorsement, the rule re-
quires a minimum of 750 soft
shell (also called peeler) crabs
to have been reported on any
one of a fishing entity's SPL
during one of three qualifying
license years (2000-01, 2001-
02, 2002-03). An entity may
endorse one additional SPL;
however, the additional SPL re-
quires a minimum of 2,500 soft
shell crabs to have been report-
ed in order to qualify. The pro-
posed cost of this endorsement
fee is $250 (includes a $25 trap
retrieval fee).
The soft crab endorsement
allows up to 400 peeler traps to
be fished. Entities with more
than one qualifying SPL are
entitled to receive up to 250
additional traps with the addi-
tional endorsed SPL. The soft
crab endorsement also allows
the holder to operate a blue crab
shedding facility with greater
than 3 shedding tanks.
The proposed endorsement
and trap tag fees must be ap-
proved by the 2006 Florida Leg-
islature before -the new FWC
blue crab rules can be fully
implemented for the 2006-2007
license year. The new rules will
take effect by June 1, and the
effective date for the blue crab
limited entry program is July 1,
2006.

The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) has proposed a series of
rule amendments to clarify how'
fishermen should measure salt-
water finfish. The Commission
is developing these rules to stan-
dardize the way that total length
is measured.
FWC's saltwater fishing rules
Express size limits of marine
fish in either fork length or total
length. Size limit measurements
for fish expressed in fork length,
such as Spanish mackerel, pom-
pano, and cobia, are considered
to be easily understood by fish-
ermen and do not need further
clarification.
However, FWC rules do not
clearly specify how to measure
fish that have total length size
limits, such as red drum, spotted
seatrout, and snook, subjecting
the. measurement of total length
to interpretation by fishermen
and law.enforcement officers:
In order to clarify how total
length size limits, for marine fish..
should be measured, the FWC


has-Fopapsed$a-series- -rIll e-


amendments specifying that to-
tal length means the straight line
distance from the most forward
point of the head with the mouth
closed, to the farthest tip of the
tail with the tail compressed or
squeezed, while the fish is lying
on its side.
The Commission is also pro-
posing to clarify the measure-
ment for triggerfish by chang-
ing its measurement from total
length to fork length.
The goal of these proposals is
to provide a standard measure-
ment procedure that is under-
stood by resident and visiting an-


glers, and that may be uniformly
enforced by officers in the field.
The FWC will conduct stake-
holder meetings and public
workshops on its proposed fish
measurement rules before hold-
ing a final public hearing on the
rules during its September 21-23
meeting in Sarasota. If the pro-
posed rules are approved by the
Commission, the rules are antic-
ipated to take effect Jan. 1.

surement of saltwater fish can

Dept. of Health continues efforts to improve access to dental care


TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Department of Health
(DOH), in a continued effort to
improve access to dental care
for everyone in the state, has ar-
ranged for the dental licensure
exam to now be offered four
times each year.
"The Department of Health
is committed to finding ways to
improve access to dental care
for everyone in our state," DOH
Secretary John 0. Agwunobi,
M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., said.
"Finding ways to increase the
number of licensed dentists in
Florida should directly and posi-


tively impact that access."
Beginning last month, the
Dental Clinical Licensure Ex-
amination administration will be
given by the North East Regional
Board of Dental Examiners, Inc.
(NERB). NERB will offer the
examination four times annu-
ally in March, June, September
and December at both schools
of dentistry in Florida -- the
University of Florida and Nova
Southeastern University. In ad-
dition, as a service to the appli-
cants for licensure, preliminary
scores are being given to them
immediately upon completion of


Dental licensure exam
now being offered four
times per year.


the examination making Florida
the first in the nation to offer this
service.
Agwunobi said lower income
individuals, who have been
shown to be three to four times
less likely to have a dental visit
and two to three times the dental
needs of higher income persons,
were feeling the greatest impact
of limited access to dental care.
He said that additional measures


to increase the number of den-
tists in the state were being con-
sidered, including possible use
of a national clinical licensure
examination, which members of
the Florida Board of Dentistry
are assisting in developing, for
future licensure.
Agwunobi also pointed to
the continued efforts by DOH
to facilitate an integrated, co-
ordinated oral health system
between the' public and private

Neotropical migratory birds can count on critical habitat


ALTAMONTE SPRINGS
With only about 5,000 birds
known to exist, the American
swallow-tailed kite is listed as
an imperiled species in Florida.
Fortunately, every spring some
of these birds make the 5,000-
mile flight from their wintering
grounds in Brazil to take up resi-
dence along the floodplain of the
Apalachicola River in the Flori-
da Panhandle.
The forked-tail bird with a 4-
foot wingspan once ranged from
Oklahoma, Texas and Minneso-
ta. Changes in land use and cut-
ting of large river-bottom trees
are blamed for their dwindling
numbers. That is why it is so
important that more than 2,000
acres of this Neotropical mi-
gratory bird habitat west of the
Apalachicola River were pro-
tected last week by a perpetual
conservation easement negoti-
ated by The Nature Conservancy
and purchased by the state of
Florida.
"Preserving this tract helps us
protect the imperiled American
swallow-tailed kites, and a vari-
ety of warblers that come to here
to breed in the summer, such as
Northern Parula Warbler, Pro-
thonotary Warbler and Swain-
son's Warbler," said Vicki Tsch-
inkel, The Nature Conservancy's
Florida director.
The Corbin/Tucker conser-
vation easement covers 2,124.5
acres in Calhoun County and is
within the Apalachicola River
Florida Forever project. The
easement protects approximately
1.5 miles of Apalachicola River
frontage and is surrounded by
forested timberland.
"This purchase is significant
because the conservation ease-
ment prohibits, among other

things, future development and
subdivision of the property,"
said Wendy Caster, the Conser-
vancy's protection resource spe-
cialist in Tallahassee. "A healthy
Apalachicola River and Bay is
critical to our state's future both
ecologically and economically."
The cutting of any timber in


American swallow-tailed kite

the 1,773 acres of floodplain on


the protected property is also
prohibited. The mosaic of high
quality bottomland hardwood
forest, floodplain forest and
floodplain swamp with a fringe
of mixed upland hardwood for-
est provides excellent habitat for
migratory songbird and water-
fowl species, as well as numer-


ous reptile and amphibian spe-
cies.
In addition to eliminating
future residential, commercial
and industrial development, the
conservation easement prohibits
commercial water wells and the
exploration for and extraction of
oil, gas and minerals.
