Bluff home Thurs.
'They lost everything they had," says Bristol Fire Chief Dale Hobby of the blaze that destroyed
a Rock Bluff residence made up of three side-by-side mobile homes Thursday. The structure
was the home of Denise Beckwith-Jackson, her husband, Lorenzo Jackson, and their three
children. No one was home at the time. Denise Beckwith-Jackson was visiting her mother two
houses down when she smelled smoke and thought someone was burning trash, according to
Hobby. She discovered the blaze when she returned home. The cause is being investigated
by the state fire marshal's office. It is thought to have started in the kitchen area, Hobby said.
The flames consumed the home and damaged one of the vehicles parked out front. "All that's
left there is the roof," Hobby said. Two fundraisers have been scheduled to help the Jackson
family get back on their feet. For information on how you can help, please see page 3.

It's time for a move to the center
I have often written that a
by-product of religion should be
peace, love, understanding and
tolerance for fellow man.
I guess that mv naivete is
showing because no matter how
many times I write that line I'm
pro\ en wrong by world events.
I'm beginning to believe that
peace. love. u andin g and
tolerance for fellow men isn't
part of mankind's DNA. Recent
events at the Air Force AcademrN
are a good example.
We send our best and bright-
est young men and w omen to the
military service academies. The
competitive process is intense
and acceptance to a military
service academy is a high honor.:
Many of America's future leaders

pool of talent. But, I % wonder if the
cream of the crop has soured.
In 2003, a rape scandal rocked
the Air Force Academy. Many
female cadets, past and present,
stated that they had been sexually
assaulted, and academy officials
ignored their complaints. The Air
Force leadership and Congress
investigated the rape incidents
and presumably, the academy
has convinced the male cadets
that the female cadets are not

As an Air Force officer, I am
perplexed that some of the best

1820 and 1840.
I give former Republican
House Speaker Newt Gingrich,
former President Bill Clinton and
the current President Bush credit
for the current religious fervor
that permeates politics and many
of our daily activities.
Recognizing that President
Clinton was damaged goods,
Gingrich instituted his Contract
with America. Clinton's sexual
escapades iced the conservative
cake. Morality became a politi-
cal issue, and in due course, the
Republicans gained control of the
Presidency and Congress.

It was a combative day at the Michael Jackson
trial, with the accuser's mother arguing with
Jackson's attorney. This wasn't the first time at the
trial that noses have been bent out of shape.

I'm sure you know by now how they picked
the pope. If you see black smoke, they haven't

AUTO* HOME LIFE
THROUGH THE BIBLE
Text: Hebrews 4:12
How does God speak? God called
Moses from the burning bush. He
called Samuel with a voice from the
darkness. He spoke to Alexander Smith
through the Bible. .
Smith was a crewman on the "Boun-
ty." The "Bounty". sailed from England
to the South Seas in 1787. When it was
time to return home, the sailors did not
want to leave the pretty island girls and
the life of ease. Fletcher Christian led
a mutiny against Captain Bligh taking
the ship. Nine men escaped to a remote
island. They learned to make whiskey
and all died from murder and disease
save Alexander Smith.
Smith was plundering through the
belongings of a dead sailor when he
ran across the ship's long forgotten Bi-
ble. He read it. As he read, God's Word
penetrated Smith's soul. God spoke to
Smith transforming his life. He taught
the scriptures to the women and chil-
dren left on the island. Twenty years
later, a ship found the island inhabited
by people living in prosperity. They
were decent people living free from
crime and disease.
The most common way God speaks
to people is through the Bible. I cannot
say to what length God will go to speak
to people. But God is probably not go-
ing to speak in a loud voice from the
skies when all we have to do is read the
Bible and pray.
The Bible has all the truth that God-
has spoken to man. You can always go
to the Bible to find God's will. It is our
standard of faith and practice.
God will use a command, promise,
truth, or principle to speak to you. Al-
ways trust that God will never, ever tell
you to do something that contradicts
the Bible. God still speaks today. Are

Politics was 'a family affair' for the Coleys
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
For years David Coley worked behind the scenes
as a legislative aide helping others realize their
political goals. When his chance to serve came, it
was all too brief.
He won the District 7 seat in the Florida Legisla-
ture last November. In December, he was diagnosed
with liver cancer. By the time the legislative session
opened in March, he was only able to attend one
day. His promising political career was cut short:
when he died March 23.
In the days before his death he kept working to
see through the many projects he was involved in,.
says his wife. Both believed he would somehow
overcome his cancer and live on to fulfill his dream
to be an effective lawmaker.
"That last week, he had his legislative aide come
to the hospital to go over his budget and make sure
everything was in order," said Marti Coley. "He had
me right there, explaining things to me and showing
me what his priorities were," she says, explaining.
"That's the way we always did things."
Even while in intensive care, he continued to
monitor legislative events by watching televised
committee meetings. She said they didn't discuss
much about the future, concentrating instead on
their belief that he would recover. "We just never
gave up," she said.
Politics has always been a family affair for the
Coleys. "We've been very involved in his life and-
work, and he was very involved in our day-to-day
family activities," she said in an interview shortly
before announcing her candidacy.
"David had high hopes and big plans for this
district. I want to be sure his plans get followed
through," she said of her decision to seek his seat
in the legislature.
Their political life "has been a family affair with
David from the beginning," according to his wife.
Her job teaching two classes at Chipola gave her
time to accompany him to numerous gatherings and
meetings: until school resumed in the fall. their three
children often accompanied them.
Their sons helped out by preparing campaign mail-
ers and waving signs while daughter Kristin made
phone calls on behalf of her father's candidacy last
year. Marti remained at her husband's side, attending
events as diverse as barbecues in Blountstown and
formal dinners in Bay County. "Whatever needed
to be done, I did it," she said, adding, "With him, it
Earlier, when David still worked for Senator Allen
Bense, the family often went along to events. The
children watched their father in action, knew of his
passion for politics and saw how others responded to
him. "He was so able to work with each party," Marti
said. "He was as Republican as you can get so
very conservative but he also respected Democrats

and could work with them," she said.
And, she said, he was well aware of the pitfalls of
politics. "David used to tell me, 'Be careful, we're
not as wonderful as everybody's going to make us
think they think we are," Marti said.
When her children urged her to run, Marti said, "I
was touched they realized how much this office had
meant to their father and that they had the confidence
that I could carry it out."
Coley's daughter told her she couldn't think of
anyone else "who would know daddy's heart and
Marti knows the past year of their lives together as
a family was unique. "I saw much more of David this
last year...in hindsight, it was a real blessing." Her
husband worked hard, "but he did not miss a lot of
the children's functions." At the same time, she adds,
"His duties and responsibilities were never hurt by
that commitment to family. I think they were simply
strengthened. That same philosophy is in me. They
(the children) are ready to help make this something
that can work and it's something I can do that \vill be
good for them," she said of her candidacy.
"I do want his name to finish the term, but I want
his term to be a good one," she said, adding, "I am
willing to get in there and do what it takes to make
sure his term gets finished the way'he wanted it
She says she's fortunate to receive support from
both parties, noting, "I think that's a tribute to how
much David was respected."
She readily admits she doesn't have her husband's
political experience, but, "If I don't know how to do
something, I'll find out."
She concluded, "I am who I am and hopefully, that
will measure up."

Atop-notch field of the world's
best tunnel boats is scheduled to
race the Chattahoochee Chal-
lenge, the season opener of the
national Powerboat Superleague
circuit. In a yearlong quest
for points and purse,, competi-
tors from at least 10 states and
Canada will test themselves
against each other and the wa-
ters of the Apalachicola River

(F2), (85-90 mph and 110 and
115 mph respectively) are on the

the efforts of Lee Garner, city
manager of Chattahoochee,
the event showcases a formi-
dable package of on-water mo-

foods, but party goers can feel
a little better about reaching for
the roasted nuts at holiday gath-

Not only do peanuts contain
the so-called "good" kind of

up there with strawberries," said
Steve Talcott, an assistant pro-
fessor of food science and hu-
man nutrition at UF"s institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
"We expected a fairly high anti-
oxidant content in peanuts,. but
we were a bit shocked to find
that they're as rich in antioxi-

Talcott and other UF re-
searchers tested the antioxidant
content of a dozen different
peanut varieties in a study pub-

journal Food Chemistry dated
Antioxidants are chemicals
that block the aging effects of

human body that damage liv-

by free radicals has been linked

cancers and macular degenera-

The growing reputation
of antioxidants has led an in-

in like a lion with record setting
rainfall. Unfommnately, it came
soon after many people had fertil-
ized their lawns. Don't automati-
cally assume that you must refer-
tiliz e. Remember, over fertilizing
is much more harmful than under
fertilizing. If you had fertilized
roughly four to seven days be-
fore the rain, then you. probably
won't need to refertilize. If you
had fertilized closer to the rains,
especially the day before, a lot of
fertilizer would have been lost. If
you do decide to refertilize, then
apply at a reduced rate. Another'
option is to wait and see if your
lawn shows signs of being fed. If
your lawn is growing and green-
ing up, then you may not need to
reapply fertilizer at this time.

The production and delivery of safe reliable,
and affordable electric power to homes and
businesses in Florida requires the coordinated
function of several components. Each facet of
this far-reaching network has to operate
efficiently, in order for electric consumers to
realize the benefits of the system as a whole
While an electric transmission and delivery
system has scores of highly technical and often
complex aspects, it can be broken down-into
two major categories- generation of electricity
and the delivery of electricity to consumers
Electric generation in Florida occurs through
the use of a number of fuels. Coal, once the
dominant fossil fuel of choice, gave way to oil,
and more recently, natural gas. A number of
power plants in Florida retain the ability to burn
either oil or natural gas to maximize efficient
operations Florida also receives some of its
power from nuclear reactors at three locations
around the state. Whether a power plant uses
fossil fuels or employs a nuclear reactor, the
generation process involves the production of
massive amounts of steam. The steam drives'
the blades of a turbine, which can be thought
of as a large motor. The turbine rotates a
generator and creates electric current.
Once electricity is produced, a system must be,
in place to deliver the power to consumers. The
system .responsible for the delivery of power is
usually thought of as having two components,
transmission and distribution.
in large quantities from a power plant. The
distances traversed by high-voltage
transmission lines are often great.
Because the high-vollage current carried over
transmission lines is not usable by residential
and commercial cuislomers, transmission lines
usually terminate at a substation near the users'
locations. Transformers in these substations,
sometimes referred to as "step-down".
transformers, reduce the voltage. From these
substations, distribution lines carry electricity
to customer locations For users needing even
lower voltages, voltage can be reduced, by a
distribution transformer or a line transformer
to a level of 110 volts.
In order for business and residential customers
to have access to an uninterrupted flow of
reliable power, every aspect of the generation
and transmission system must function as
designed. This precise functioning extends to
arrangements between electric utilities to
interconnect their systems. Often times
investor-owned utilities will have points of
interconnection with municipal utilities or
electric cooperatives and vice-versa The
purpose of having electric utilities connect their
systems is to provide a greater measure of
reliability for consumers. If a utility experiences
a disruption in its system, power can be:'
obtained from an interconnected utility until
power is restored.

Information security conference offers scholarship, job opportunities
TALLAHASSEE As soci-
ety's dependence on computers
grows, so does the need for spe-
cialists trained to secure them.
That's why Florida State Uni-
versity's computer science de-
partment and the National Sci-
ence Foundation are once again
teaming up to host the Informa-
tion Security Summer School on
May 3-5. The three-day confer-
ence is designed to attract under-
graduate and graduate students
to the burgeoning field of in-
formation security and identify
prospects for full scholarships,
according to Alec Yasinsac, as-
sistant professor of computer
science and a conference orga-
nizer. Currently there are more
funds than there are qualified ap-
The Information Security
Summer School will include
lectures, panel discussions and
workshops on topics such as dig-
ital forensics, Web security, wire-
less network security, cryptogra-
phy and legal and ethical issues
of information security. In addi-
tion, representatives from federal
and state agencies and compa-
nies such as Datamaxx and Cisco
Systems will be on hand to meet
students at a job fair.
The conference also is a great
opportunity for community
members, people interested in a
career change and information
security professionals to learn
about security issues from inter-
nationally recognized experts.
"FSU is fortunate to be one
of the first National Security
Agency Centers of Excellence
in Information Assurance Edu-
cation," Yasinsac said. "One
benefit of this distinction is the
opportunity to participate in our
Information Security Summer
School and interact with some
of the best security researchers
in the world."
A keynote address will be giv-
en each day at 11 a.m. in Room
101 of the Love Building on the
FSU campus. Antoine Joux of
the University of Versailles will
address the conference on May
3; Jim Davis, interim director of
the Office of Academic Informa-
tion Technologies and associate
professor in electrical and com-
puter engineering at Iowa State
University, will be the speaker
on May 4; and Virgil Gligor, a
professor at the University of
Maryland at College Park, will
be the speaker on May 5.
The job fair will be held from
5 to 7 p.m. on May 3, and a re-
ception for conference partici-
pants will be held the following
evening. Both evening events
will be held in Room 151 of the
The conference is free and
open to the general public, but

Arbor Day tree planting and maintenance advice
CHAMPAIGN, IL Nation-
al Arbor Day is just around the
comer (April 29). Everyone grab
a shovel and get ready to plant a
tree. But wait....
Before planting a tree make
sure you know how to do it cor-
rectly, advises the International
Society of Arboriculture (ISA).
How a tree is planted, and initial-
ly maintained, makes all the dif-
ference in the world. Too many
people are content to simply
plant a tree, but don't ensure that
the tree.has the chance to go on
to live for many years. "Planting
a tree is making an investment
in the future," says Sharon Lilly,
ISA Educational Director. "You
must care for and nurture your
young tree so that it 'will pay
dividends for years to come?"
TREE PLANTING TIPS
There are a few simple tips to
remember when planting your
tree this spring:
*Prepare the perfect hole for
Dig the hole 2-3 times the
width of the root ball. Do NOT
dig deeper than root ball depth.
Make the sides of the hole slant
*For bareroot trees, neatly cut
away any broken or damaged
roots. Soak the roots for a few
hours prior to planting to allow
them to absorb water.
*Container-grown trees should
have the plastic or metal contain-
ers completely removed. Care-
fully cut through any circling
roots. Remove the top half of
pressed peat/paper containers.
*Balled and Burlapped
("B&B") trees should have all
of the ropes cut. Pull the:burlap
at least 1/3 of the way down; slit
remaining burlap to encourage
root growth. If in a wire basket,
cut away the top of the basket.
Plant the tree.
Gently place the .tree in the
hole. Partially backfill with the
soil from the hole, water to settle
the soil, then finish back-filling
the hole. Tamp the soil gently,
but do not step on the root ball.
A FEW POINTERS
While you may have finished
planting, Arbor Day aficiona-
dos should remember these final
*Remove tags and labels.
*Do not stake unless the tree
has a large crown, or if the plant-
ing is situated on a site where
wind or people may push the tree
over. Stake for a maximum of
*Prune only the damaged
*Soak the soil well, making
sure no air pockets form between
roots. Wait until next year to fer-
tilize; ... :
*Spread 2"-3" of mulch over
the planting area, but do not
place it up against the trunk.
*Be sure the root ball has plen-
ty of water throughout the ,year.
Anyone with questions re-
garding choosing the right tree or
;, -pr~oper plapting and maintxenape.-
' U is advised to contact an IA C-,
tified Arborist. According to a
survey of U.S. consumers, eight
out of ten believe it is important
to hire ISA Certified Arborists.
ISA Certified Arborists have
completed extensive and rigor-
ous testing to ensure their knowl-
edge on the latest techniques in
tree care, and are required to pur-,
sue continuing education units in
order to remain certified.
For additional information
on planting and other tree care
topics, the ISA has a complete
line of consumer education bro-
chures, which can be viewed at
www.treesaregood.com. To pur-
chase printed versions of these
brochures call the ISA office at

The International Society of
Arboriculture (ISA), headquar-
tered in Champaign, IL, is a
nonprofit organization support-
ing tree care research and educa-
tion around the world. As part of
ISA's dedication to the care and
preservation of shade and orna-
mental trees, it offers the only
fication program in the industry.
