Accident claims life of 20-year-old Bay County man


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Bay County man was killed and his
mother injured when their vehicle went
off State Road 20 and hit a tree about
a half mile from County Road 275 in
Clarksville Tuesday.
The fatality was identified as 20-year-
old David Kurt Schmidt of East Callaway
Drive in Panama City. His mother, 41--
year-old Beatrix Harsh, who shares the
same address, received minor injuries and
was taken by AirHeart helicopter to Bay
Medical Center.
According to a report from the Florida
Highway Patrol, the 2002 sports utility
vehicle went off the north shoulder of
State Road 20, struck a guardrail and trav-
eled down the embankment and struck


two trees. The two were not wearing their
seatbelts.
Melissa Boggs and Christine Ether-
idge drove up on the accident moments
after it happened around noon and saw
smoke boiling out of the radiator. When
they got to the car, the woman sat up in
the passenger's seat and said, "My son
David won't wake up." Etheridge called
911 and Boggs tried to keep the woman
calm until help could arrive.
The body of.the man was sitting side-
ways in the driver's seat, leaning against
the door where the vehicle had struck
the tree. "There were no skidmarks,"
Boggs said, adding, "It \ as barely even
drizzling and there was no standing water
on the road."

Woman charged, with

escape after slipping

away from Bristol jail
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Bristol woman who was arrested during
traffic stop Saturday night is now fac-
ing a more serious charge after she slipped out
of the Liberty County Jail, according to Captain
Brigham Shuler of the Liberty County Sheriff's
Department.
Barbara Ann Vaught, 49, was taken into cus-
tody when a deputy noticed that the expiration
date had been altered on the temporary tag of
the vehicle she was driving. After running a
check on her license, it was learned that she was
wanted for a parole violation in Gulf County.
Vaught was booked into the jail in Bristol.
The following morning she was one of se\ eral
inmates making a first appearance before a
judge via telephone at the jail. While the cor-
rections officer was dealing with another case,
Vaught snuck into the room where inmates'
civilian clothes are kept and changed into what
she was wearing the previous night, according.
to Shuler.
"She went out the back door, climbed over the
wooden fence between the jail and the Liberty
County Clerk of Courts office and took off," he
said. She found two dog cages out back and
stacked one on top of the other to help her over
the six-foot fence, he said. "I think she sprained
her ankle when she hit the ground," he added.
Shuler, who serves as the Jail Administrator,
was called out. of church to look for the missing
inmate. He first went to her daughter's home
on Spring Street and later learned that Vaught
had been hiding behind some debris nearby. He
returned later and caught her at the house.,
He noted that Vaught would have been able
to get out on $100 bond had she remained in
custody for just a little while longer. No\\. he
explains, the escape charge leaves her with a
second degree felon) which is punishable with
up to 15 years in prison.


Dawson convicted

for cultivation and

cannabis possession
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A six-member jury convicted a Rock Bluff
man on cultivation of cannabis and pos-
session of less than 20 grams of cannabis after a
two-day trial last week in Bristol.
Convicted was James'Dawson, whose uncle,
Joe Dawson, was found guilty of the same,
charges February 17.
In both trials, Prosecutor Richard Combs
presented the surveillance video made by of-
ficers with the Fish and Wildlife Commission
that he said showed the two men taking care of
a site where approximately 100 marijuana plants
were found.
"James Dawson was seen actively on the video
tape cultivating the plants," Combs said. "He was
seen down a hill, pulling a plant out and shaking
it around. He was then observed coming up the
hill and he passed right in front of the camera,"
he said.
Combs told jurors Dawson could have been
pulling weeds from the illegal patch or "sexing"
the plants by removing the males to enhance the
quality of the remaining, female plants:
He was convicted on a third degree felony,
which calls for a maximum of five years in
prison.
James was returned to custody at the Liberty
County Jail, where he is. being held on $25,000 -
bond. His sentencing isschj dule(jr;Julyj 1J9,. -

Floridians u
TALLAHASSEE-Florida's
Chief Financial Officer and State
Fire Marshal Tom Gallagher is
urging Floridians to think about
fire safety as they make their
Fourth of July plans.
"The Fourth of July is a great
time for families and friends to
relax together and reflect on the
freedoms we all enjoy," Gallagher
said. "But don't let the celebration
turn to tragedy. If you're buying
fireworks to celebrate, remember
S "that if it launches or explodes, it
/ is illegal in Florida.".
Gallagher encouraged Florid-
ians to instead attend a profes-
sional fireworks display or enjoy
any of the hundreds of legal
sparklers listed on the State Fire
Marshal's web site at www.fldfs.
com/sfm.
Illegal fireworks include shells
and mortars, multiple tube de-
vices, Roman candles, rockets
and firecrackers. Floridians
should not sign "waivers" in order
to purchase fireworks. Signing a
waiver will not clear you of re-
sponsibility should you be caught
using them, and using fireworks
illegally is a first-degree misde-
meanor punishable by up to one
year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Even if you are using legal
sparklers there is still a risk of
injury. When lit, some sparklers
can reach temperatures between
1,300 and 1,800 degrees, at least
200 degrees hotter than a standard
butane lighter.
Illegal fireworks aren't the
only fire hazard facing Florid-
ians looking to celebrate this
weekend. Gallagher said grills
and campfires also can pose real
risks.


irged to celebrate safely


The Consumer Product Safety
Commission reports that each
year about 30 people die and 100
people are injured as a result of
charcoal and gas grill fires, explo-
sions and misuse. Many of these
fires and explosions occur when
consumers first use a grill that has
been left idle for a period of time
or just after refilling and reattach-
ing the grill's gas container.
Meanwhile, campers can suffer
serious and fatal burn injuries if
they use candles, portable stoves,
cigarettes, lanterns, or matches
around camping tents and sleep-
ing bags. Sparks can also blow
from a nearby campfire and ignite
a tent or sleeping bag.
Gallagher advises Floridians
to follow these precautions to
celebrate safely:
SPARKLERS
*Use sparklers and other legal
novelties on a flat, hard surface.


Do not light them on grass.
Use sparklers in an open
area. Keep children and pets
at least 30 feet away from all
ignited sparklers.
Light only one item at a time
and never attempt to re-light a
"dud."
Don't use any unwrapped
items or items that may. have been
tampered with.
Keep a fire extinguisher or
water hose on-hand for emergen-
cies. It's a good idea to drop used
sparklers in a bucket of water.

GRILLS
Check the tubes that lead into
the burner for any blockage from
insects, spiders, or food grease.
Use a pipe cleaner or wire to clear
blockage.
Check for gas leaks, follow-
ing the manufacturer's instruc-
tions.

helped Moreau pull Hobby from the truck. Hobby told them he
wasn't going to jail and snatched his hands away when Moreau tried
to handcuff him. He was taken into custody after a brief struggle.
Deputies found approximately 100 grams of marijuana when
they searched Hobby's truck. Four Ziplock bags of marijuana were
found in the armrest of the truck. One bag held about 59 grams of
the illegal substance; another was found to contain approximately 26
grams: a third bag was found with six grams and a fourth bag held an
add itonal five grams. Another four grams of marijuana were found
in a pill bottle.
Also found in the armrest was a pipe with marijuana residue, analog
scales. scissors burnt on the end indicating marijuana use and a blue
pouch \ ith marijuana residue.
T%% o other pipes were found in the truck, along with two boxes of
Ziploc baggies and rolling papers.
Se eral guns were also found in the truck, including two .22 caliber
handguns and a 20-gauge shotgun. None were unloaded.
The oung girl later gave a statement confirming that Hobby was
teaching her "how to roll a joint," the deputy's report stated.
Moreau said there were eight to 12 people at the party, many of
whom \ ere intoxicated and trying to yell over the loud music.
During the investigation, the host of the party Tyrell Odom
- continually interrupted the deputies during their investigation.
After three ortfour warnings from deputies, Odom continued to ap-
proach them and they took him into custody for resisting arrest without
\ violence and holding an open house party.
The two men were taken to the Calhoun County Jail and later
released on their own recognizance. Hobby was given a notice that
his truck would be seized, which he refused to sign.

Flag burning amendment again


For the fifth time, the U.S.
House of Representatives has
passed a constitutional amend--
ment that would allow Congress
to ban the destruction or debase-
ment of the American flag. In
the past, the U.S. Senate failed
to support the amendment, and it
died on the Senate floor.
However, the bill's supporters
in the Senate believe that they
have the 67 votes needed pass
the bill. If the Senate passes the
bill and legislators in 38 states
ratify the proposed amendment,
the 28th amendment to the U.S.
Constitution will be a ban on the
destruction or debasement of the
American flag.
Democracy, particularly
American-style democracy, is
messy. American-style democ-
racy is messy because of the Bill
of Rights, which consists of the
first 10 amendments to the Con-
stitution.
The Bill of Rights, ratified on
December 15, 1791, is powerful
stuff. The First Amendment is the
most potent amendment of all.
The First Amendment guarantees
freedom of speech, freedom of
the press, and freedom of associa-
tion and assembly. It also protects
the rights of citizens to worship
as they please. Citizens cannot be
forced to support someone else's
religion. The First Amendment
also provides for the right to
demand a change in government
policies.
Burning the flag has been a
red meat issue for conservatives
since the U.S. Supreme Court, in
a 5 to 4 decision in 1989, ruled
that flag desecration was a form
of free speech.
I wore the military uniform
of the U.S. military for 32 years.
I believe that I did my part for
"protecting the flag." Having said
that, I do not support amending
the Constitution to prevent the
destruction or dJi;ri-,inent of the
American flag, Here is why.
There were a number of flags
that flew over the American


COX'S

CORNER
Jerry Cox is a retired mili-
tary officer and writer with
an extensive background in
domestic and foreign policy
issues. He lives in Shalimar,
Fla.

colonies before and after the
Revolutionary War. On June 14,
1777, Congress resolved that the
American flag would have 13
stripes, 7 red and 6 white, and 13
stars on a field of blue. According
to folklore, Betsy Ross sewed the
first American flag, but that myth
has never been substantiated.
The American flag is a symbol
of the strength of America. The
flag is a piece of cloth represent-
ing the heart and soul of America,
but this piece of cloth is not the
strength, heart and soul of the
American people.
Like most people, I do not like
to see Americans burning the
American flag. I particularly do
not like to see our enemies bum-
ing the American flag.
But burning the: flag is not
burning the heart and soul of the
American people. Americans are
-strong people. They aren't going
to be .humbled, brought to their
knees because some goofball
burns an American flag in protest
of some perceived injustice.
This is the point where I part
company with the conservatives.
While I do not like to see my fel-
low citizens burning Old Glory,
the protection of the First Amend-
ment right to freedom of speech is
far more important than prevent-
ing the physical act of burning a
symbolic piece of .cloth.
Amending the Constitution is
a serious event. Since ratification
in 1788, the Constitution has been
amended only 27 times. The first
10 amendments are the Bill of


Rights.
As with this proposed ban to
prevent the destruction or debase-
ment of the American flag, other
amendments were proposed and
one passed, not to promote the
rights of citizens, but to prevent
the American people from com-
mitting certain acts.
The most glaring was the Eigh-
teenth Amendment, ratified on
January 16, 1919, which prohib-
ited the manufacturing and sale of
intoxicating liquors. In their most
pious of moments, the Congress
and the States decided to lock up
the national liquor cabinet.
Without their whiskey, the
SAmerican people went nuts and
one of the darkest chapters of
American history was written
during the days of Prohibition. Fi-
nally, a degree of sanity returned,
and the Twenty-First Amendment
repealed Prohibition. Now people
can drink Jack Daniels legally. No
more hiding in the closet while
nipping a gin.
Thanks to the conservative
movement. sweeping through
the country, the Congress 'and
the States are about to use the
Constitution, the Rule of Law, to
once again take away individual
rights.
If the Senate doesn't vote
down this right-wing proposal,
then what's next? A Constitution-
al amendment to ban abortions.
That idea has already surfaced
a number of times in President
Bush's tenure. Where does it
end? No one knows because the
conservative right wing in this
country will make every effort
to force their ideas of right and
wrong on the citizenry as a whole.
Of course, given the chance, the
left would do the same.
While distasteful, no one has
ever been hurt by someone burn-
ing the American flag. However,
this proposed amendment to pro-
tect the flag, if ratified, will be an
erosion of the First Amendment,
specifically the right to free
speech. A very bad idea.

President Bush has announced that he plans to visit Vietnam.
He says that is must be a nice place because he heard John
McCain spent five years there. CONAN O'BRIEN

The House of Representatives has voted to approve a
constitutional amendment to ban flag burning. Which is
surprising because in the past congress has always rejected
any flag burning amendment. See, Congress feels that any form
of speech no matter how vile or insulting should be permitted.
They believe that because that's how they campaigned and got
elected. -JAY LENO

The guards who watch Saddam Hussein say he sits around all
day eating Doritos. And, of course, in this country we call that
college. DAVID LETTERMAN

Saddam Hussein is 100% certain that he will one day return to
power. You know, kind of like the Clintons. JAY LENO

You can tell it's summer because today Saddam switched to
Cool Ranch Doritos. DAVID LETTERMAN

Former President Clinton said recently that the prison at
Guantanamo Bay "should either be cleaned-up or closed down."
You know, there was a time when people were saying that about
the Oval Office. -JAY LENO

Even if the flag burning amendment does become law, the
larger problem will remain of how to respectfully dispose of
older, tattered flags. Well, fortunately the U.S. official Flag Code
has a suggestion about this. Quote: 'The flag, when it is in
such a condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display,
should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.'
Owwwwcchh. In response, the House Republicans are calling
for tattered flags to be kept alive via a feeding tube.
JON STEWART

The founder of Adelphia Cable got 15 years in prison for looting
the company. Isn't that amazing? Even the cable company steals
from the cable company! JAY LENO

Ted Kennedy has called for Donald Rumsfeld's resignation.This
is interesting. This marks the first time Kennedy has ever come
out against anything with rum in it. -CONAN O'BRIEN

Oil is up to 60 dollars a barrel. In fact, today President Bush
declared war on Alaska. JAY LENO

Experts announced that within the next ten years there is a
70% chance there will be a terrorist attack using weapons of
mass destruction...Look, in ten years, the ozone Will be gone,
the average temperature will be over 200 degrees, robots and
clones will rule the streets, and Tom Cruise will be engaged to
Dakota Fanning. JIMMY KIMMELL

The Supreme Court ruled that the government has the right to
seize your land. And today Native Americans said, what else is
new? -JAY LENO

They're getting closer and closer to the trial for Saddam Hussein
and, according to his prison guards hanging around Saddam
Hussein, say he's hooked on Cheetos and Doritos... Kind of a
strange picture, sitting around in his underwear eating Doritos,
dreaming of the day he can return to power -- oh wait, that's Al
Gore. DAVID LETTERMAN

Another earthquake this is getting crazy! You think this.is
God's way of saying he doesn't believe the Michael Jackson
jury either? JAY LENO

President Bush is talking up his economic plan these days. He
said his economic plan would help Americans from all walks
of life.... Bush said, "My plan will help if you're a billionaire or
just a millionaire." CONAN O'BRIEN

President Bush said he will visit Vietnam next year.... He told
the prime minister that he is anxious to stay at that Hanoi Hilton
that John McCain is always talking about. -JAY LENO

Turns out Saddam Hussein is a neat freak who likes to eat
Doritos and Cheetos all day. At least that's what he said on his
profile for eharmony.com. -JAY LENO

FOLLOW JESUS
Text: Luke 14:33
I remember one of my first expe-
riences with capitalism. I was a little
boy in elementary school. I loved to
read "Superman Comics." I would
sometimes dream about how cool it
would be to have Superman's x-ray vi-
sion and see through things. One day
I ran across an advertisement in the
comic book that was terribly exciting.
Right there in "Superman Comics"
was a pair of x-ray vision glasses that
I could order for my very own. I ran
to my mother and begged for money.
Mama refused to-give it to me trying to
explain to me that they did not work.
I did not care. I had saved up a few
dollars helping sweep, clean, or pulling
weeds out of the fencerow. I put my
hard-earned money in an envelope and
wailed six long weeks for my x.ray vi-
sion glasses to arrive.
SNeedless to say, I was in for a
huge disappointment when my x-ray
glasses arrived. All in the world they
did was make your hand look dark and
bony if you held it up to the light. You
couldn't even see anything else with
them. They were totally, utterly, use-
less. They wound up in the trash.
X-ray glasses that you can't see
with are worthless. Salt that is not salty
is not good for anything. A Christian
who won't follow Christ will not do.
A disciple who is not willing to give
up all that he has is good for nothing.
He is not even fit for the dunghill or
manure pile.
What is it that you are unwilling to
give up for God? What are you hang-
ing onto that is so important? It is not
fit for the, manure pile. It will make you
unfit as well. Hudson Taylor put it this
way, "The real secret of an unsatisfied
lif lies too often in an unsurrendered
will." Surrender all to follow Christ.

Charles Sirmon, Director of
Theatre at Chipola, says he has
worked to establish a relationship
with the local professional Seaside
Repertory Theatre. "After visiting
the area and seeing the shows they
produced I was very excited about
being some part of a wonderful"
group." Sirmon had the chance to
meet long-time Seaside inhabitant,
Craig Hoover, founder of Seaside
Repertory. The directors began
a friendship that led to a summer
outreach for some lucky Chipola
Theatre Majors. Sirmon says,
"Craig called and said they were
looking for interns for the profes-
sional summer program. So I im-
rmedija(ly got in touch with some
talented student,"

FWC offers unique hunting opportunities


In addition to regular and
special quota hunts, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is offering
sportsmen some unique hunt-
ing opportunities for the coming
season.
The FWC is providing sports-
men mobility-impaired hunts,
supervised youth hunts, a family
hunt, quail hunts and track vehi-
cle and airboat hunts on wildlife
management areas (WMAs). Ap-
plications will be available June
30 from FWC regional offices
and online at www.wildflorida.
org/hunting/quota_hunt/default.
html. The application period for
submitting applications to be in-
cluded in the random drawing
is July 13-29. Like the regular

(FWC) is. offering hunters a
great opportunity to take part
in its annual statewide alliga-

1 through Oct. 8. Since 1988,
Florida has offered these al-
ligator hunts, which provide a
thrilling, hands-on, face-to-face
hunting adventure that is unlike
any other hunting experience
imaginable.
'This season, more than 4,000
Alligator Harvest Permits will
be available on a first-come,
first-served basis. Permit hold-
ers are authorized to take two
alligators from designated areas
during specific harvest periods.
Sale of these permits begins
at 10 a.m. (EDT) July 6. Ap-
plicants have their preference

tions.
Another unique hunt is for
hunters 8-15 years old. Two
WMAs in the North Central Re-
gion (Camp Blanding and An-
drews) offer opportunities for
non-hunting adults to supervise
young hunters on public hunting,
areas where the number of hunt-
ers and the hunting areas are rig-
idly controlled to provide an op-
timum learning experience and
maximum safety. These hunts
are popular, and the number of
applicants exceeds the number
of spaces available each year.
The new Matanzas WMA
will offer a family hunt this year.
Applicants age 18 or older may


calling toll-free 1-888-HUNT-.
FLORIDA (486-8356) from
anywhere in the United States
or Canada.
To reserve a permit, appli-

an Alligator Trapping License
and two alligator-hide valida-
tion tags, or provide proof of a
valid Alligator Trapping License
(must be valid through Oct. 8)
plus pay the fee for the two hide
validation tags. No other hunt-
ing licenses are required.
The cost for a Resident Al-
ligator Trapping License and
hide validation tags is $272, and
non-residents pay $1,022. Any
hunter who takes an alligator
must complete and send in an

Wildlife management areas in
the southern part of the state of-
fer hunters an unusual challenge
because of their open-marsh
landscape. Hunting these areas
requires special vehicles, and
the FWC has established quotas
on the number of vehicles al-
lowed.
Permits to operate track ve-
hicles on the Rotenberger, Ever-
glades and Holey Land WMAs
and permits to operate airboats
on the Everglades and Francis S.
Taylor WMAs are issued in two
random selections.
A quota hunt permit will be
required to hunt quail on the
Blackwater WMA Hutton Unit


$52, which allows the license
holder to assist a trapper in tak-
ing, alligators, but only in the
presence of the permined trap-
per. All persons seeking a har-
vest permit must be at least 18
years of age by Sept. 1, 2005,
and only one harvest permit per
person will be issued.
To educate participants on
the rules and regulations of the
hunts, the FWC offers a no-cost,
three-hour training and orien-
tation program, which is held
throughout the state. Permit
recipients are not required to at-
tend, but first-time participants
are strongly encouraged to do
so. Courses will be offered in

and the Florida Highway Patrol went through *
the necessary phases to respond to such an

Bee Aware! African Honeybees




becoming established In Florida


Tom Gallagher,
Chief Financial Officer State of Florida
African honeybees also
known as killer bees have en-
tered Florida, and a University
of Florida researcher says the
aggressive insects may eventu-
ally spread throughout the state
and move into other areas of the
southeastern United States.
The bees, which tend to sting
in large numbers, have been found
and stopped at various Florida
ports over the past decade, but
now it looks like they're here to
stay, said Glenn Hall, an associate
professor of entomology at UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences. He said Florida's warm
climate is ideal for the bees, which
could be bad news for the state's
$16 million honeybee industry.
"If African honeybees become
established in large numbers over
the next few years, they will affect
the beekeeping industry and the
pollination of many crops," Hall
said. "Public safety, recreation
and tourism may also be affected,
leading to liability problems."
Hall, a bee geneticist who de-
veloped DNA markers to identify
African honeybees, said that to
the untrained eye they look the
same as resident European hon-
eybees.
African bees more aggressit e-
ly defend their nests than Europe-
an bees. African bees may swarm
as many as 16 times a year while
European bees swarm about three
times a year, he said.
The African bees invaded five
southwestern states in the 1990s
and have periodically turned up
at Florida's deep-sea ports since
1987, Hall said. Until recently,
swarms entering through ports
such as Jacksonville, Miami and
Tampa have been successfully
captured in bait hives maintained
by the Florida Department of Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services.
"However, new finds in the
Tampa area suggest that African
bees are spreading and becoming
established in the state, and they
are being found farther inland
from the ports," Hall said. "We
did not believe that enough bees
could arrive on ships to form an
established population, but they
did so in Puerto Rico, and now
appear to be doing the same in
Florida."
He said the infestation around
Tampa is still small, and the bees
are not unusually aggressive. As
isolated swarms enter one by one
through the ports, daughter Afri-
can queens from the swarms have
no choice but to. mate with the
resident European male drones.
Fortunately, the hybrid offspring
are not as aggressive as their Af-
rican parents.
"Once the combination of
hybrids and new introductions
reaches a critical mass, bees of
African descent will likely start to
mate with eacti Oher. resulting "ih


offspring with more African-like
.characteristics," Hall said.
He said that the arrival of Af-
rican bees is not unexpected and
should not be viewed with undue
alarm at this time.
"Concerns about the bees have
been exaggerated, with some me-
dia and motion pictures portray-
ing swarms of deadly, stinging in-
sects invading cities," Hall- said.
"Nevertheless, it's important to
be aware. African bees have at-
tacked and killed people and live-
stock in Africa, in South and Cen-
tral America, and in other states."
There have been 14 fatalities in
the United States, and hundreds
of nonfatal stinging incidents
have been reported.
Neither the European nor Afri-
can race of honeybee is native to
the Americas, Hall said. The Eu-
ropean honeybee (Apis mellifera)
has been managed by commercial
and hobby beekeepers worldwide
for many centuries, selected for
desirable traits such as gentle-
ness, honey production, tendency
not to swarm, winter hardiness


and disease resistance.
On the other hand. the African,
hone bee (Apis mellifera scutel-
lata) is adapted for survival in Af-
rica's harsh environment where
climate, predation and other fac-
tors have produced a hardy race,
Hall said.
In the 1950s, Brazilian scien-
tists thought that the bees from
tropical regions in Africa might
thrive in South America's tropi-
cal environment better than the
previously imported European
honeybees.
"They were right," Hall said..
"Once the African honeybees
were released in Brazil, they
quickly spread throughout South
and Central America, advanc-
ing up to 300 kilometers a year.
through the tropics into Mexico.
It was only a matter of time until
the African honeybee population
reached the United States."
Movements of African hon-
eybees have been tracked more
closely than any other invasive
insect. First detected in the south-
ernmost counties of Texas in


1990, they quickly spread to New
Mexico, Arizona and California
by 1993. Since then, they have
moved into southern Nevada- and
Utah. .
Many of the wild (feral) colo-
nies of honeybees in these states
are of African descent, making it
difficult for beekeepers to manage


European honeybees and keep
out African honeybee genes. In
areas colonized by African bees,
regular beekeeping operations
with European honeybees are
disrupted, and costs of manage-
ment are increased.
Because of urbanization in
Florida and public fears over Af-
rican bees, coupled with increas-
ing liability, apiary sites could
be more difficult to obtain in the
future, Hall said. These con-
cerns along with the marginal
income from beekeeping could
discourage beekeepers in the
future. That would decrease the
availability of bees and increase
the price of renting bee colonies
that are essential for the pollina-
tion of crops.
"Large populations of Eu-
ropean honeybees managed by
beekeepers are probably our best
defense against African bees,"
Hall said. "The European honey-
bees compete with African bees
for food sources. When they in-
terbreed with the African bees,
defensive stinging behavior in
their offspring is reduced."

LCHS. Since most of the kids
wanted to take part in the o'er-
night Project Graduation event.
only two of the five-member
team committed to going to the
Washington, D.C. competition.
Kendall Peddie and Jessica Sans
faced a long drive to Jackson ville
right after graduation ceremonies
where they were scheduled to
catch a fight to Washington. D.C.
Their arrival the next morning
wouldn't even allow them time
to go to their hotel for a shower
before beginning the competition
in The Plains, Virginia.
Just moments before leaving,
Jessica-- who'd not been feel-
ing well for the past few\ hours
- suddenly got sick with the flu
and couldn't make the trip. Ken-
dall went on, accompanied bN her
mother, Karen, and her science
teacher, Doug Harrell.
One hundred teams from 28
states competed. Each team had
three to file members. Kendall
was the sole representative for
her team.
Kendall'sbiggest fear \ as the
wiring for the rocket. That's one
task she always avoided, she says.
explaining. "I'd never touched
the wires before... the other girl
was doing that." But on the plane
ride to Washington, her teacher
talked her through it. They didn't
have the rocket to practice with
because it had to be sent to the
competition ahead of time. He
would not be able to help her on
the field during the contest since
the rockets had to be assembled


'a^- '- ...: _< .; L "'.f


and launched by students.
When Kendall arrived and
opened the rocket which had been
shipped ahead, she found it had a
broken fin. Although she repaired
it, there wasn't time for the glue


to dry before her turn came.
Fortunately, the team had sent a
second back-up rocket to use.
Kendall walked out to the
launch area alone and set it up.
"The rocket went straight up, the


parachute came out and the eggs
didn't break," she said of what
appeared to be a perfect launch.
Moments later, she learnedher
rocket was disqualified because
the new engine mount had not


been glued in securely and it fell
'off. Her paN load of two raw eggs
landed safely but the dislodged
engine knocked their entry out
of the contest.
Through it all, 17-year-old
Kendall Peddie persevered, but
she admits it wasn't easy. "I was
wanting to cry all the time," she
said. "I was all stressed out."
After her rocket was examined
following its launch, she walked
up to the judges' area, where
they told her she was disquali-
fied. "Tears started coming to
my eyes," she said. But she com-
posed herself, shook the judges'
hands and thanked them.
Had the engine not fallen out,
Kendall believes the LCHS entry
would have placed in the top 20.
The goal of the competition was
to/keep the rocket in the air for
exactly 60 seconds and return
to ground with an undamaged
payload of raw eggs. The LCHS
rocket was timed at 64 seconds.
"They said I had a really, re-
ally good flight. But your engine
cannot come down on its own.
It has to be in the rocket or on a
parachute," she said.
During a ceremony following
the competition, Kendall was
presented with the Sportman-
ship Award recognizing her ef-
forts. She later said that while
she didn't want to be out on the
field alone competing, she felt
she needed to do it for herself
and Jessica as well as the rest of
the team.
Despite the stress and being
rushed, "I had a lot of fun doing
it and it was a really good oppor-
tunity," Kendall said.
"We were up against some
people who had a lot of money,"
she said, noting that the LCHS
entry was handmade while many
of the other entries were much
more sophisticated.
She said the school's partici-
pation would not have been pos-
sible without the support of the
Liberty County School Board,
which funded the trip.


Little girl turns in big bill after finding money in shrubbery


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A after finding a $100 bill last week, a 10-year-old
Bristol girl said she remembered what her grand-
mother had once told her to do the right thing.
And that's just what Chelsea Bateman did.
During a stop at The Bank in Bristol on June 22,
Chelsea stayed out in the truck with the family's cocker
spaniel, Daisy, while her grandpa went inside.
When she grew tired of waiting, she hopped out of
the truck and walked toward the front door to check on
grandpa.
As she neared the bank entrance, she noticed something
out of the comer of her eye. Apiece of paper was sticking
out from bush. She bent down, pushed her hand under
the plant to retrieve the item and found it was a $100 bill.
"I was surprised," she said.
She had plans to go to Wild Adventures in Valdosta the
SnexJ da) and knew she could really hae some fun with


that money. But Chelsea says she only thought about
that "just a little" before doing what she knew she was
supposed to.
She walked in the bank and turned it in.
The staff at the bank already knew who the money
belonged to. A man had come in the previous Friday to
make a deposit for his church. During the transaction,
they came up $100 short and he had to make up the dif-
ference from his own pocket.
"She told me she turned it in 'cos her Granny Lila had
told her to do the right thing," said Chelsea's.grandfather
John Davis, who was pleased with Chelsea's actions.
"This old granddaddy's kind of swelled up with pride,"
he added.
Chelsea's father, Liberty County Sheriff's Deputy
Brian Bateman, said, "Not many adults would have done
that. I was very proud."

New OHV Trail system to open


at Tate's Hell State Forest


from the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services
TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announces the opening
of the first "off-highway vehi-
cle," or OHV, trail system created
under the new T. Mark Schmidt
OHV Safety and Recreation Act.
The trail will be open for riders
in Tate's Hell State Forest begin-
ning on July 1.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is
being held to kick off the grand
opening at 10 a.m. in the state
forest and will be attended by
representatives of both Franklin
County and the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services. The public is
also invited.
"Florida has had a tremendous
growth in the recreational use of
all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and
off-highway motorcycles (OHMs),
but few places are available to
legally ride on public lands,"
Bronson said. "This is the first
of several OHV riding sites that
the state will assist in opening to
the public over the next several
years."
The O6V Trail System in
Tate's Hell State Forest will give
ATV and OHM users an oppor-
tunity to ride their vehicles on
more than 150 miles of designat-
ed trails on existing forest roads.
While riding the trails, forest
users can expect to see various


ecosystems including cypress
swamps, blackwater creeks and
pine flatwoods. It is hoped that
the availability of this and future
trails will cut down on ATV and
other vehicle use in undesignated
areas, which results in damage to
the ecosystem.
"The primary purpose of the
Tate's Hell OHV Trail System*
is to give the public an oppor-
tunity to explore the forest with
an alternative to driving a car or
a truck," Bronson said. "The key
to. the success of this trail site, as
with future sites, depends on how
responsible the users are in riding
on these trails."
The T. Mark Schmidt OHV
Safety and Recreation Act re-
quires each ATV and OHM to
purchase a title, similar to those
required by car buyers, prior to
riding on any public lands that
have a designated area for OHV
riding. The titles are available
through the Florida Department
of Highway and Motor Vehicles
at any county tag office. The law
provides that the title fees by used
to develop the OHV trails. To
ride on the new Tate's Hell OHVY
Trail System, each ATV or OHM
owner will also have to purchase
an annual permit at a cost of $50
per year (permits are prorated for
each quarter of the fiscal .eari.
Permits are alid for riding at
either the Tate's Hell OH\ Trail
System or the Croom NMotorc cle


Forest in Brooksville.
Permits will be sold at the
Carrabelle State Forest Head-
quarters.-Applicants are asked
to bring a copy of their proof of
title with their ATV or OHM. All
OHVs are required to have work-
ing exhaust systems and USDA
approved spark arrestors. Sound
levels will be limited to 96 deci-
bels on Tate's Hell State Forest.
For more information on the
Tate's Hell OHV Trail System
and Florida's OHV Safety and
Recreation Program, call (850)

2004 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report


We're pleased to present to
you this year's Annual Water
Quality Report. This report is
designed to inform you about
the quality water and services
we deliver to you every day. Our
constant goal is to provide you
with a safe and dependable sup-
ply of drinking water. We want
you to understand the efforts we
make to continually improve
the water treatment process and
protect our water resources. We
are committed to ensuring the
quality of your water. Our water
source is ground water from one
well. The well draws from the'
Floridan Aquifer. Because of the
excellent quality of our water,
the only treatment required is
chlorine for disinfection pur-
poses and aeration to, remove
hydrogen sulfide.
If you have any questions
about this report or concerning
your water utility, please contact
Brenda D. Sweet at (850) 643-
5463. We encourage our valued
customers to be informed about
their water utility. If you want
tol01earn more. please attend any
of our regularly scheduled meet-
ings. They are held on the first
Thursday after the first Monday
of each month at the Liberty
County Courthouse.
Sumatra routinely monitors
for contaminants in your drink-
ing water according, to Federal
and State laws, rules, and regu-
lations. Except where indicated
otherwise, this report is based on
the results of our monitoring for,
the period of January 1 to De-
cember 31,2004. Data obtained
before January 1, 2004, and
presented in this report are from
the most recent testing done in
accordance with the laws, rules,
and regulations.

The sources of drinking
water (both tap water and
bottled water) include rivers,
lakes, streams, ponds, res-
ervoirs, springs, and wells.
As water travels over the
surface of the land or through
the ground, it dissolves natu-
rally occurring minerals and,
in some cases, radioactive
material, and can pick up
substances resulting from the
presence of animals or from
human activity.
Contaminants that may
be present in source waler
include;
(A) Microbial contami-
nants, such as viru6Lei and
bacteria, which may come
from sewage treatment
plants, septic systems, agri-
cultura[ivestock; operations,.

We are pleased to announce that our drinking
water meets all federal and state requirements.

January 1 to December 31, 2004.
Data obtained before January 1,
2004, and presented in this report
are from the most recent testing
done in accordance with the laws,
rules, and regulations.

The sources of drinking wa-
ter (both tap water and bottled
water) include rivers, lakes,
streams, ponds, reservoirs,
springs, and wells. As water
travels over the surface of the
land or through the ground, it
dissolves naturally occurring
minerals and, in some cases,
radioactive material, and can
pick up substances resulting
from the presence of animals
or from human activity.
Contaminants that may
be present in source water
include:

nants, such as viruses and

In the table above, you may
find unfamiliar terms and ab-
breviations. To help you bet-
ter understand these terms
we've provided the following
definitions: -
Maximum Contaminant
Level or MCL: The highest level
of a contaminant that is al-
lowed in.drihking water. MCLs
are set as close' to the MCLGs
as feasible using the best avail-
able treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant
Level Goal or MCLG: The level
of a contaminant in drinking
water below which there is
no known or expected risk to
health. MCLGs allow for a
margin of safety.


from sewage treatment plants,
septic systems, agricultural
livestock operations, and wild-
life.
(B) Inorganic contami-
nants, such as salts and met-
als, which can be naturally-
occurring or result from urban
stormwater runoff; industrial
or domestic wastewater dis-
charges, oil and gas produc-
tion, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbi-
cides, which may come from
a variety of sources such as
agriculture, urban stormwater


Action Level (AL): The con-
centration of a contaminant
which, if exceeded, triggers
treatment or other require-
ments that a water system must
follow.
Picocurie per liter (pCilL)
- measure of the radioactivity
of water.
"ND" means not detected
and indicates that the substance
was not found by the laboratory
analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or
Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one

million parts by weight of the
water sample.
. Parts per billion (ppb) or Mi-
crograms per liter (pg/I) one


(D) Organic chemical con-
taminants, including synthetic,
and volatile organic chemi-
cals, which are by-products
of industrial processes and
petroleum production, and can
also come from gas stations,
urban stormwater runoff, and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contami-
nants, which can be naturally
occurring or be the result of oil
and gas production and mining
activities.
In order to ensure that tap
water is safe to drink, the EPA
prescribes regulations,1 which

Gallagher warns investors: Verify before you buy


TALLAHASSEE Flor-
ida's Chief Financial Officer
Tom Gallagher announced that
he is expanding efforts to pro-
mote investor education and
protect investors from financial
scams. His message, commu-
nicated through public service
announcements and billboard
advertising, is "Be a Smart
Investor: Verify Before You
Buy.".
"Each year, thousands of
Floridians fall prey to financial
scams that cheat them out of
their hard-earned money or re-
tirement savings," said Gallagh-
er, who oversees the Florida De-
partment of Financial Services.
"Our goal with this campaign is
to protect investors by getting
their questions answered before
they invest."
Gallagher said both the PSAs
and billboards will help direct
Floridians to the department's
helpline number 1-800-342-
2762 where they can verify
that a broker, firm or company
is licensed to sell investments
and how long they've been do-
ing business in Florida. Poten-
tial investors can also find out if
there are any complaints filed or
actions taken akainsl~thebroke


or company ihe. are consider-.
ing.
Gallagher also said that po-
tential investors can use a new
on-line tool to verify that a bro-
ker or company is licensed by
logging on to www.yourmon-
e. N ourli fe.ore and then clicking
on "Be a Smart Investor: Verify
Before You Buy." The website
also offers tips and resources to
help investors of all ages and
income levels better protect
themselves against investment
fraud.
"Education and awareness
are often an investor's best de-
fense against fraud," said Galla-
gher, who launched a statewide
public education initiative last
fall to help Floridians avoid debt
and build assets. "Before pur-
chasing a stock, bond, insurance
product or any financial product,
Floridians should verify they are
legitimate investments."
Gallagher also recommend-
ed that potential investors ask
for and read the prospectus on
any investment, which should
provide information about the
company's business plan, and
its officers and directors, and in-
'-esate s tie cl''ams nidej 'th''e


prospectus.
As part of the campaign .bill-
boards will be going up. in the
following markets: ; Miami; Ft.
Lauderdale, Orlando, Ocala,
Gainesville, Ft. Myers, Daytona,
Melbourne, St. Augustine, Jack-
sonville, Tampa, Tallahassee, Ft.
Walton Beach and Panama City.
The Florida Outdoor Advertis-
ing Association (FOAA) and
its participating member com-
panies donated the billboards
as part of their statewide public
service program.
"FOAA is proud to offer as-
sistance with this statewide pub-
lic service effort," said Charlotte
Brand, FOAA President and
CEO.
Financial support for the "Be
a Smart Investor: Verify Before
You Buy" campaign is provid-
ed by a grant from the Inves-
tor Protection Trust (IPT). The
IPT is a nonprofit organization
devoted to investor education.
Since 1993, the IPT has worked
with the States to provide the
independent, objective investor
education needed by all Ameri-
cans to make informed invest-
ment-decisions. Their website is

by Theresa Friday,
Extension Horticultural
Agent, Santa Rosa County


Many people, while cleaning
up their yard following the recent
tropical storm, noticed alarming
clusters of insects on their trees.
Masses of insects can be shock-
ing, but are not necessarily unusual
. or harmful. Two insects that have.
been reported lately are psocids and
walnut caterpillars.
Psocids (pronounced .so-sids)
- are tiny insects. Adult psocids are
about one-fourth inch in length and
brownish-black in color with some
white markings on their wings.
They have many common names
including webbing barklice and
tree cattle, referring to the way the
adults congregate and move togeth-
er en masse on trees.
Many people will never actually
see the psocid insect but will defi-
nitely notice their %ebbing. Very
fine silken webbing will complete-
ly cover the trunk and branches of

backyard trees. The psocid web-,
bing often seems to occur over-
night and can be quite alarming.
It is thought that the webbing is to
protect the psocids from predators
or to create a more favorable envi-
ronment underneath.
Psocides can be considered ben-

eficial insects because they clean
our tree bark. They feed on lichen
and other decaying organic matter.
We encourage people to leave these
insects alone. Usually the webbing
will go away in a couple of weeks.
Because psocids are not harmful,
control measures are not recom-
mended.-
Another insect cluster appearing
now is the walnut caterpillar. This
caterpillar is the immature stage of
a beautiful, cinnamon brown moth.
It is one of the handmaid moths.
The walnut caterpillar is wide-
spread and feeds on a wide variety
of deciduous trees. Most often, they
are found on walnuts, pecans, and
hickories.
The moths emerge in the spring
and summer and usually lay their
eggs in June and July. The moth's
larvae or caterpillar has axavenous
appetite and feeds on leaves. Young
caterpillars are cinnamon in color
with white stripes, and older cater-
pillars are black with white-hairs.
They have a strange habit of crawl-
ing down onto the trunk in a very
large group to molt. Full-grown
caterpillars drop to the ground and
crawl around looking for a place to
pupate. The\ o erwinter as pupae
in the Soil.
Healthy mature trees- are not
harmed by a little defoliation. Very
young trees or stressed trees that
are completely defoliated two years
in a row may be stunted or injured
and may require control measures.
If you have walnut caterpillars,
there are several non-toxic reme-
dies available to you. You can sim-
ply clip off and destroy the foliage
or small branches where the cater-
pillars are feeding. You can also
handpick the larvae from the tree
trunks or low branches and destroN
them. Or, you can spray the foliage
with the biopesticide Bt, commonly
sold as Dipel and Thuricide.
Although some trees infested
with the walnut, caterpillar may
be heavily defoliated, tree death
is very rare. Chemical control is
usually 4iot necessary and may in-
terfere with the thirteen species of
beneficial insects and spiders that
attack the walnut caterpillar.
It's always a good idea to iden-
tify aan insect before attempting to
control it with an insecticide. Fre-
quently, beneficial insects will take
care of a pest problem for you. If
you do spray, spray smart. Like
psocids, not all insects are pests.
Tip of the Week: The sudden ap-
pearance of mushrooms is common
in Gulf Coast landscapes. They
can literally pop up overnight. Fre-
quent summer rains means more
mushrooms of various sizes and
shapes. With few exceptions, they
do not cause diseases of landscape
plants. Some are poisonous if in-
gested. There is no environmen-
tally safe fungicide that can be rec-
ommended for mushroom control.
Gardeners should accept' and ap-
preciate this special group of fungi.
In cases where the mushrooms are
objectionable they can be removed

Bear sightings abound

throughout panhandle


from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
There was a day in the not-
too-distant past when it was rare
for black bears in Florida to ven-
ture into urban areas but today
that's no longer the case. Now,
it's an everyday occurrence.
An increasing bear popula-
tion, ever expanding develop-
ment and the population boom in.
Florida mean bears and humans
mix on a daily basis. Consider
the case last week when a 154-
pound juvenile male bear found
itself in the middle of the St. An-
drews area in Panama City. That
bear was tranquilized and taken
to the Apalachicola National
Forest where it was released.
The biggest key to living with
bears, says Todd Nims, a wildlife
biologist with the -Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC), is to make sure
you don't leave anything outside
that bears will eat.
"If you live in an area where
you know you have bears or have
experienced problems with them
in the past, don't leave things
out like garbage or excess pet
food. Garbage cans need to be
secured or brought into a ga-
rage," Nims are. companies now :that make
bear-resistant devices for safely
securing garbage cans. Diagrams
on-how to make these bear-resis-
tant devices are also available on
the Internet.
Nims said he's handling a lot
of nuisance bear calls now due
to the dispersal of juvenile bears,
mostly males, trying to find their
own place where they can thrive.
Over the last week or so, Nims
.said he's spoken with homeown-
ers experiencing bear problems
in Santa Rosa County, Niceville,
Shalimar, including Eglin AFB,
Carrabelle and Crawfordville.
Nims said some callers are
almost paranoid about the fact
that bears are in their area and
demand that the bears, be caught
and moved. He said moving a


bear is one of the last things he
usually recommends because it
doesn't solve the problem, nor
does it address the larger issue
that as development and habitat
loss both increase, human/bear
interactions will inevitably be-
come more common. Besides,
he says, other bears may con-
tinue to be a nuisance. However,
in busy urban areas where a bear
has little chance of safely getting
back to its habitat, moving a bear
is sometimes the only option.
One thing Nims tells people is
black bears have never attacked
anyone in Florida or most other
southeastern states.
When the calls about nuisance
bears come in, Nims said the
answers are usually the same -
remove the "attractants" and the
bears will go away. In addition
to garbage and pet food, Nims
said bird feeders, charcoal grills
with food drippings -and decay-
ing food in compost piles are all
things that need to be eliminated
in bear country.
Nims urges people who sus-
pect they have bear problems go
to the FWC's Web site MyFWC.
corn and download the brochure
"Understanding Florida's Black
Bear." For those without com-
puter access, individual copies
can be obtained by calling Nims
at (850) 265-3676 in Panama
City.
