Tax holiday

gives families

a break on new

clothing and

school supplies

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
F or kids, beginning another school
year means getting new clothes,
selecting school supplies and catching
up with friends.
For parents, it means it's time for the
family budget to take a big hit.
That's why families like the Arrants
of Bristol are getting ready for Saturday,
when the first day of Florida's nine-day
sales tax holiday begins. Clothing, books
and school supplies priced at $50 or less
can be purchased tax-free this year from
July 23 through July 31.
"For people on a limited budget, it's a
wonderful thing," said Dawn Arrant. Ar-
rant and her husband, Daniel, keep a close
eye on their money and make it stretch
as far as possible with three children in
school. They plan their shopping around
Florida's tax-free holiday.
She's already got a long list of the basic
items they need to buy, which includes
pens, pencils, paper, erasers, highlighters,
notebooks, lunchboxes, backpacks, calcu-
lators and hand sanitizer. The three kids
have their own lists as well. Last year,
she spent $100 on each child for basic
supplies. "That didn't include clothes,"
she said. This year's new clothing bud-
get has earmarked $50 for 9-\ ear-old
Candace. $70 for her 12-year-old brother
Shawn and they hope to keep 14-year-old
Crystal's purchases at about $100. But,
says mom, it's going to be a challenge.
Clothing costs will be more of a
concern for Crystal, who will start ninth
grade at Liberty County High School
(LCHS). She and her friends will have to
retool their t ardrobes this year to comply
with the new LCHS dress code.
"We're going to have to buy her a
whole new wardrobe to meet the stan-
dards of the code," Arrant said.
"She started crying when I showed her
the drdss code," Arrant said, explaining

A July 11 accident slowed down a long line of bumper-to-bumper traffic on the
Trammell Bridge as people headed home after the threat of Hurricane Dennis
had passed. Log truck driver John Graham of Gretna was traveling west around
4:30 p.m. when he plowed into. the back of a 2002 Land Rover pulling a trailer,
driven by Michael Morgan of Panama City. The collision happened just inside
the Calhoun County side of the bridge. The impact sent the Land Rover spinning
around, causing it to slam into a 2005 Ford van, driven by Ronald Defalco, also
of Panama City. The bridge was shut down for a short time until the scene could
be cleared and travel resumed. The log truck driver was charged with careless
driving. Damages were estimated al $15,000 to the Land Rover, $7,000 to the
van and $500 todthe log truck. The accident was investigated by FHP Trooper

grant department discussed at the board's June 30 special
valuations from meeting, commissioners put the grants
complaint from a staff on a three-month probation and told
them to start clocking in at the Clerk of
.. *. Courts Office.
Commissioner Albert Butcher said
Complaints about seeing employees doing
S: things outside the scope of their duties
during office hours prompted the board to
require their attendance to be monitored
through the clerk's office. Questions
N were also raised about employees clock-
ing in for others, according to Commis-
sioner L.B. Arnold. "We wanted to make
sure everybod 's coming to work so we
moved the time clock down to the clerk's
office." Butcher said.
Butcher said he had heard complainiits
from tw o officials \ ho work w ith grants
programs about the Liberty Comnnit of-
fice. One. he said, involved the office
getting written up twice for failing to
send anyone to training classes to learn
o- p how% to fill out new forms required in their
w unerway at job. He added that the saie person noted

told Butcher that his impression of the
grants office staff was that "it just didn't
seem like .they took an interest in doing
their jobs."
"I think the grants department staff
wants to help the people of the county,
but you've got rules you have to follow,"
Butcher said. He said he felt one of the
office's biggest problems was a failure to
keep up-to-date records.
"We just want to get it straightened out.
If not." Butcher said. "there are going to
he some changes."
"'e'\e had our ups and dow ns and
we'%e always tried to straighten them
out." said Grants Coordinator Scott Kady,
w\ho has worked under Grants Director
Rick\ Re ell for more than a decade.
He's unhappy that recent problems have
overshadowed \ears of successful home
rehabilitation. "We've got 700 or 800
homes under our belt and quite a few
people feel really thankful for what we've
done," he said.
He said the office has a six-year back-
log of applicants. "We ha\e over 150
people waiting in line." he said. explain-

Trooper sees close call

between ATV & pickup
A Liberty County teenager didn't get arrested but he
did get a stem lecture after FHP Trooper Jason King saw
him nearly hit a truck head on while traveling along Pea
Ridge Road in Bristol. King was off duty and traveling
in his personal vehicle with his wife when they saw the
boy's four-wheeler traveling recklessly.
"We had turned left off Michaux Road onto Pea Ridge
to go to town, and as we got near Doobie Brothers Bar-
becue, a red and white four-wheeler came screaming up
behind us," said King.
The four-wheeler passed King on the left, came back
in front of his vehicle and then ran off the road into the
grass and sand. When the.teenage driver regained control
and returned to the highway, "he nearly struck the front
end of a southbound pickup," King said.
King followed the AVT, which drove to the back of
the barbecue restaurant and came around, stopping at the
outside cook shed.
After locating the youth inside, King had some strong
words for the young driver. "I was actually making con-
tact as a citizen," said King, who did not identify himself
as a Florida Highway Patrol trooper, but after he left,
others pointed out to the boy just who had been talking
to him.
King said he and his wife "were shook up about the
way he rode that thing" as the boy sped north along Pea
Ridge Road.
While he didn't charge the boy this time, he said that
i parents can be cited for their children's reckless behavior
on all-terrain vehicles. Permitting an unsupervised minor
to drive is an arrestable misdemeanor, King pointed out.
He added that the shoulder of the road is considered
part of a public street and anyone operating a motorized
scooter or ATV must comply with all traffic laws.

Vehicles collide at Shelton's Corner
A collision just south of Shelton's Comer has resulted
in drug charges being filed against one of the drivers,
, according to a report from the Calhoun County Sheriff's
;. Department.
When Deputy Bliss Moreau responded to the July 16
call, he arrived to find a 2004 Nissan and a 1998 S-10
Chevy pickup, both on the east shoulder of State Road
73. The Nissan was facing south; the pickup was facing
According to Moreau, the Nissan driven by Michelle
Pritchard, 21 hit the Chevy in the driver's side door and
damaged the entire driver's side of the pickup, which was
driven by Catlin O'Neal Green, 20. Green and his pas-
senger, 25-year-old Samuel W. Wofford, had only minor
injures. Also unharmed was Pritchard and her passenger,
Nahuel Varnadore, 20.
While talking with Green, the deputy noticed a strong
odor of alcohol. Green acknowledged he had consumed
some alcohol earlier in the day and performed a roadside
sobriety test satisfactorily.
Moreau did an inventory search of the Chevy and found
four pills, all of which were Schedule IV narcotics. There
were three Klonopins and one Xanax. The deputy also
found a pair of tweezers and 1.5 grams of marijuana.
Green was issued a violation of right-of-way citation.
Green said the pills and marijuana belonged to him and
was charged with possession of a controlled substance,
possession of less than 20 grams marijuana and possession
of drug paraphernalia.

Traffic stop ends with arrest
A routine speeding stop led to the arrest of a man on
marijuana possession charges July 16 on County Road
274.Calhoun County Sheriff's Deputy Nic Keller stopped
the driver of a 2001 GMC who was going 78 mph in a 55
mph zone. When he approached the vehicle to talk to the-
woman behind the wheel, he noticed the odor of alcohol
and burning cannabis.
After asking Miranda Lee and her passenger, Michael
McGill, to step out of the vehicle, the deputy saw two
open bottles of beer in the door. During a pat down of
McGill, the officer found a pack of rolling papers. While
searching the. vehicle, Keller pulled down a visor and a
Ziploc bag containing 15 grams of marijuana dropped
out and fell on the seat.
McGill claimed ownership of the marijuana and was
!,: arrested. He was charged with possession of marijuana

Truck stolen from Hosford

Woman charged with

passing counterfeit

$100 bill and gas skip
A Leon County woman was arrested last week after
she allegedly tried to pass a counterfeit $100 bill at a lo-
cal business.
The Blountstown Police Department (BPD) was
alerted Friday afternoon when the fake bill was used at
Blountstown Produce on State Road 20. When the woman
handed over the bill, the clerk pulled out a marker used to
distinguish counterfeit money from U.S. currency, accord-
ing to Major Rodney Smith. As the clerk started to test
the bill and discovered it was a fake, the woman snatched
it back and took off, driving down River Street.
Officers received a description of two women traveling
in a gray 1999 Suzuki SUV with a temporary tag in the
rear window, but were unable to catch up with them due
to afternoon traffic.
About a half hour later, the BPD got a call about an
$11 gas skip at the Southern Express involving the same
An alert was issued for the vehicle and the women were
stopped by a deputy, near White Springs Road after they
drove into Liberty County.
Beth Adams, 31, was charged withretail theft, uttering
a forged instrument, possession of certain forged notes,
bills, checks or drafts.
She is being held on $2,500 bond.

Man charged with

stalking his ex-wife
A man who had been ordered by a judge to stay away
from his former wife was arrested July 12 after he alleg-
edly sent her a dozen roses and called her at work.
Edward Hall, 25, of Blountstown, told deputies that
he and his ex-wife had words earlier over a child sup-
port issue and, he later decided to send her some roses
at her workplace.
The following morning, Hall's ex-wife, Amanda Hall,
went to the courthouse to file a violation of injunction
complaint against him. He found her at the courthouse
and tried to talk to her, according to the report from the
Calhoun County Sheriff's Department.
She then came across the street to the sheriff's office,
where Hall followed her and found her talking with
Sheriff David Tatum.
Hall was jailed on a charge of aggravated stalking

that her teenage daughter and her
friends are going to have a hard
time finding the right jeans, an ev-
eryday essential for school. Low
hip-hugging jeans are the style
but the new dress code requires
that "pants be worn at the natural
While Crystal admits hip hug-
gers aren't always comfortable,
she's more concerned with wear-
ing something she and her friends
consider unstylish. "Nobody
wears high-waisted jeans," said
Crystal. "It's kinda weird, 'cos
most people wear hip huggers."
She added, "People get made fun
of for their clothes."
Her mom, who works as a
teacher's aide at Tolar Elemen-
tary, understands her daughter's
dilemma, but agrees wholeheart-
:Jly \\ ith the policy. "I think it's
wonderful. We're not going to
have students coming to school
half-dressed." Even in middle
school, she noted, girls wear low
rise jeans and short tops. "When
the\ come in they show their-
stomach. when they sit down,
they show their backside."

Arrant said the dress code also
forbids students from showing up
in pajamas and slippers, which
she's seen in the elementary
grades. For some younger stu-
dents, she said, "The buses come
so early, they just don't have
time to get dressed so they just
go as they are. Parents should
be aware of what their children
are wearing."
The LCHS dress code also
prohibits exposed underwear,
spaghetti straps, hats or bandanas,
torn clothing like- fashionably
ripped jeans and limits hemlines
to five inches above the knee.
But, said Arrant, the challenge
will be to locate "natural waist-
line pants." She said they can't
be found in the teen section so
they'll have to do some shopping
in the women's section, which
distresses her daughter who re-
alizes her style choices will be
limited. "Manufacturers don't
make high-rise jeans for teens

anymore," mom said.
Many girls may be able to get
away with wearing a longer shirt
to hide the top of their hip hug-
gers, Arrant said but that's one
trick her daughter won't be able
to use. The 14-year-old is six feet
tall and already has trouble find-
ing shirts long enough, she said.
The family of five will make
their journey to an area Wal-mart,
driving at least 45 miles to shop
this Saturday. "With the cost
of gas, you need to plan well,
have a list and execute that list,"
Arrant said. "Be sure you get
everything." Additional trips, she
warned, will just add wear and
tear on the family vehicle.
What does she expect when
they get to the store this week-
end? "It's a madhouse. You just
have to wait your turn and pray
that you can find what you need,"
she said. The family stays togeth-
er while they shop, with brother
Shawn waiting nearby while his

Man arrested after kicking

woman, punching windshield
A man who vented his anger-at an Altha convenience store was
arrested last week for battery and criminal mischief.
Witnesses told deputies that Casey Causey, 23, of Blountstown,
shoved a woman and kicked her right leg in an effort to knock her to
the ground on July 11, according to a report from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Department: .
A witness stated that Causey then got into a 1993 Oldsmobile and
began "kicking and punching the windshield from the interior of the
vehicle for no reason."
- When a deputy arrived at theAltha Southern Express, he found
Causey sitting on the truck of the car. He was bleeding from an injury
to a knuckle on his right hand but refused medical treatment.
When asked what had happened, Causey told the deputy he
was being attacked while in the car when he started punching the
windshield. Causey, who smelled strongly of alcohol and had to be
asked repeatedly to go with the deputy to his patrol car, displayed
his hostility by balling up his fists while staring threateningly at the
woman he attacked.
Just before being handcuffed and put in the patrol car, Causey stated
that "he knew he was wrong and said to take him to jail," according
to the deputy's report.
He was later given a conditional release from the county jail.

As the first.day of school nears,

send them to local Dollar Stores

list, the kids' lists and the teach-

Mother Nature is talking to us

n less than two years, six
major hurricanes and a
couple of tropical storms have
'pounded the state of Florida.
Ten months ago, Hurricane
Ivan ripped into the Panhandle
of Florida and turned this area
into something that looks like
a war zone, particularly along
the beaches of the Gulf of
The storm surge from Ivan
ripped coastal homes from
their foundations turning them
into piles of sticks and bricks.
Tornados ripped through inland
areas in the central Panhandle
destroying anything in their
paths. It was a scary night when
Hurricane Ivan came ashore.
If Hurricane Ivan wasn't
enough, Hurricane Dennis
wound itself into a tight knot
and followed the path of Hur-
ricane Ivan. While not as fero-
cious as Ivan, Dennis scattered
the piles of trash that were once
homes and eroded away more
of the beach areas.
Not to be outdone, Hurri-
cane Emily was right behind
Hurricane Dennis corkscrew-
ing its way toward the Florida
Panhandle. The only thing that
saved us from Emily is that
a big high-pressure area was
positioned over the Gulf of
Mexico and spun Emily to the
west into Mexico. Without the
luck of the high-pressure area
diverting Emily, all of us on the
Gulf Coast would have been
hunkering down and hoping
for the best.
But the hurricane season has
just begun. There is another
three months of dodging Moth-
er Nature's deadly bullets.

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

It seems that every
one of these tropical
waves that come off
the west African coast
has 'Florida Panhandle'
written, all over it.
When I was growing up in
the Panhandle, I don't.remem-
ber so many hurricanes in such
a short time. Seems like there
was a hurricane every now and
then. Statistical data will prob-
ably prove me to be wrong, but

weather. If that is true, I'm not
sure that much will be left of
the Florida Panhandle. It seems
that every one of these tropical
waves that come off the west
African coast has "Florida
Panhandle" written all over it..
When they leave the African
coast, it's almost like these
tropical waves that become
hurricanes have the GPS co-
ordinates of my house so they
know where they are going.
I don't think that God meant
for people to build houses on
beaches and barrier islands.
But local governments have

permitted developers to build
structures that have property
rights to the water line.
You don't have to be overly
bright to figure out what a
pounding surf and a ten foot
surge of water does to these
homes made of sticks and stuc-
co. They get pounded to pieces,
and all the property owner's ex-
pensive sand in now somewhere
in the Gulf of Mexico.
I'm not very sympathetic to
rich people who lose waterfront
homes. The shouldn't have
built there in the first place.
But, government wants all of
us to pay for beach restoration
which gives the rich guy back
his lot and restores beaches for
tourists .
Building homes on Gulf front
lots is much like those people in
California that build homes on
hillsides which .are denuded of
brush by fires and then turn to
mud in the follow ing rain show-
ers. The result is the California
home slides down the hill with
the mud. Shouldn't have built
on a hillside that will probably
end up in the floor of the valley
- not smart. Same for building
on beaches that move when the
Gulf of Mexico says move.
Realtors and developers
won't agree, but I think that
hurricane season will have a
detrimental effect on the real
estate and housing market
along the Gulf coast. A recent
survey by a local television
station indicated that 58% of
the people in this area, myself
included, have considered
moving to higher and safer
ground, probably somewhere
near Canada.

The space shuttle launch was cancelled last week. That's when
you know the price of gasoline is too high! .- JAY LENO

I was watching hurricane coverage all last week. They had
reports from Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and
Mississippi. Actually, it was the same reporter he was being
blown around from state to state. JAY LENO

The White House says today that President Bush is standing
by his top advisor Karl Rove even though Rove apparently
revealed the identity of a CIA agent. However, Bush did say
he would fire Rove if he revealed the end of 'Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory.' CONAN O'BRIEN

More problems for Karl Rove -- now he's accused of
leaking the plot of the Harry Potter book. JAY LENO

The city of Paris lost the chance to host the 2012 Olympics.
They're very bitter about it. Apparently, the Parisians
are disappointed because they were looking forward to
being rude to thousands of new people. CONAN O'BRIEN

Chief Justice William Rehnquist was hospitalized last night
with a slight fever. Doctors have worked out a compromise so
he can still work. They're going to give him a judge's robe that
opens in the back. -JAY.LENO

Ralph Nader's 2004 election coordinator was found guilty of
election fraud..... yeah, apparently Nader didn't get six votes
he got five. CONAN O'BRIEN

There are now hints that President Bush may be. backing away
from Karl Rove. Like today he gave him a new job, Ambassador
to Iraq. JAY LENO

It was hot today! The hottest day of the year. It was so hot that
Angelina Jolie was adopting an Eskimo baby. --JAY LENO

It was so hot in D.C. today that Dick Cheney's pacemaker was
replaced with an ice maker. JAY LENO

The weather here is beautiful, but the mop-up continues after
Hurricane Dennis. This is the biggest disaster to hit Florida
since Social Security reform. -JAY LENO

Did you all see that footage of Hurricane Dennis? It hit Florida
with winds of over 100 miles an hour. In fact, the wind was so
strong, Cubans were arriving in Florida an hour before their
inner tube. .. -JAY LENO

Text: Romans 5:3-5
Paul Lee Tan tells of a Greek soldier
who had a painful, terminal disease. He
fought fearlessly facing death head on
having nothing to lose.
A general wanted to help him over-
come his pain. He called upon a doctor
to find a cure. The fearless soldier was
healed. But from that time on, Antigo-
nus was changed.
He was not up front fighting fear-
lessly. He shrank back to protect him-
self. Antigonus' problem made him a
great fighter. Now that he was cured, he
was a useless soldier.
Why do we have problems? One
reason is to build our character. Think
about it. Experience is the best teacher.
It is our destiny to be conformed to the
image of Christ and be like Him. How
is God going to accomplish that in our
God puts us into situations where
we can develop Christ-like characteris-
tics. "Suffering produces perseverance
(NIV)." How can we develop faith and
maturity strong enough to keep going
no matter what? God puts us into situa-
tions where we are required to exercise
such faith.,
A runner has to push himself until
his muscles ache, his lungs bum, and
sweat pours off him in order to run lon-
ger and faster. Likewise, God teaches
love, joy, integrity, and perseverance by
allowing you to endure situations where
it is difficult to be loving, joyful, honest,
and strong.
Our Christ-like character gives us
hope. We can expect that God, who is
working in our lives molding and mak-
ing us into the image of Christ, "...re-
wards those who earnestly seek Him
(NIV)." Indeed, "...our light and mo-
mentary troubles are achieving for us an
eternal glory that far outweighs them all

when largemouth bass, striped bass.
and sunshine bass stocked recently
in a half-dozen Panhandle lakes and
rivers will start showing up in an-
glers' live wells. It's part of the on-
going -effort of fisheries biologists
with the Florida Fish and Wildlife.
Conservation Commission (FWC)
to see that species like striped bass
do well and anglers have good fish-
ing opportunities.
Dave Yeager, a fisheries bi-
ologist who works at the FWC's
Black'w after Fisheries Research and
Development Center near Holt,
said within the last six weeks they
released 30,000 small largemouth
bass in Lake Talquin near Quincy.
He said -all of the bass were three
inches or larger and tagged with
tin) micro-tags which are not vis-
ible and can only be picked'up by
biologists with scanning tools.
"We .know most years that
.oung-of-vear largemouth bass
fingerlings n Lake Talquin don't
do very well. There are several fac-
tors 1\h. their survival is so poor,
but we know if they're a little larger
at release, such as these three-inch
fish we grew, they survive much
better,"' he said.
For fishermen who enjoy striped
bass fishine.g the work is even more
pronounced. Yeager said they re-
leased 489,000 fingerling stripers at
three places on the Chocta% hatchee
River: 146.500 in the Black waterr
, River; 100,000 in Lake Seminole;
40,000 in Ochlockonee River; and
30,000 in Lake Talquin.
Striped bass can grow up to 60.
pounds or more in their southern
range. In Florida the largest striped
bass on record is a 42.25-pound fish
caught from the Apalachicola River
.n December 1993.
Yeager said -fingerling striped
ba_'.! released thi } ear will measure
A.bi uL 10 inches in length in the fir.t
year and about 18 inches in two-
ihree years He said they start out
eating liny organisms in the water,
'something biologists call zooplank-
-ton and phytoplankton, but quickly
con\ er to small fish such as shad.
A total of 250,000 sunshine bass
,were stocked in the Escambia Riv-
er. Sunshine bass are commonly re-
rerred to as hybrids by both anglers
and biologists alike, due to the fact
they're a cross of white bass and
;triped bass. Sunshine bass weigh-
ing up to 16 pounds have been
caught in Florida.
There's a 20-fish bag limit for
striped bass, white bass and sun-
Shine bass. In waters west of the
Suwannee River in the Panhandle,

only three of those fish can be strip-
ers and they must measure at least

For largemouth bass, there's a
five-fish bag limit and only one of
the five can be larger than 22 inch-

is free and prepares sportsmen for
a safer, more rewarding experi-
ence while in the outdoors.
"Don't wait until the last minute
to sign up to take a Hunter Safety
Course or you may have a hard
time getting into a class," said Bill
Cline, program administrator. "A
large number of courses are being
offered statewide this summer, and
it's best to try to get into one while
more space is available. Then,
when hunting season gets here,
you'll be ready to go."
The Florida Hunter- Safety
Course meets all the requirements
for hunter safety training through-
out North America. It also is es-
sential for Floridians who wish
to hunt in most other states or in
Canada and need to purchase a
non-resident license.

The course is available to be
taken in a classroom setting, and
it is offered in all of the state's 67
counties. In addition. to the tradi-
tional in-class course, hunters now
. have the option of taking most of
the classroom instruction online or
on compact disc, without leaving
However, hunters who choose
the Internet or CD-ROM version
must take an additional three hours
in the classroom; successfully pass
a written exam; and participate in
a field-day class that includes live-
firing instruction on a shooting

make arrangements now to sign up
for one this summer," Cline said.

FWC offers classes on alligator hunting; permits available

The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) is offering alligator hunt-
ers no-cost, three-hour classes to
help prepare them for the coming
statewide alligator harvest, which
runs Sept. 1 through Oct. 8.
This is an opportunity for hunt-
ers who have never participated
in the state's alligator hunts to
learn what hunting alligators is all
about. The class topics include:
preparing for the hunt; hunting
techniques and safety; harvesting
and processing; caring for your
alligator skin; and alligator rules
and regulations.
Classes will be offered at the
following locations:
*Wednesday, Aug. 3, 6 9
p.m., Paramount Plaza Hotel
and Suites, 2900 S.W. 13th St.,

Gainesville. For directions call
(352) 377-4000.
*Wednesday, Aug. 10, 6 9
p.m., Bryant Building, 2nd Floor
Auditorium, 620 South Meridian
St., Tallahassee. For directions
call (850) 488-3831.
Since 1988, the FWC has of-
fered alligator hunts, which pro-
vide a thrilling, hands-on, face-
to-face hunting adventure that is
unlike any other hunting experi-
ence imaginable.
Sale of alligator permits began
June 6, but more than 2,000 Al-
ligator Harvest' Permits are still
available on a first-come, first-
serve basis through Sept. 20. Per-
mit holders are authorized to take
two alligators from designated
areas during specific harvest pe-
riods. Alligator harvest areas are

listed at MyFWC.com/alligator
under "Alligator Harvest Permit
Applicants have their prefer-
ence of applying at any county tax
collector's office, license agent
(retail outlet that sells hunting and
fishing licenses), online at, My-
FWC.com/license or by calling
toll-free 1-888-HUNT-FLORIDA
(486-8356) from anywhere in the
United States or Canada.
To reserve a permit, applicants
must submit payment for an Al-
ligator Trapping License and two
alligator-hide validation tags, or
provide proof of a valid Alliga-
tor Trapping License (must be
valid through Oct. 8) plus pay the
fee for two hide validation tags.
No other hunting licenses are re-
The cost for a Resident Alli-
gator Trapping License and hide

validation tags is $272, and non-
residents pay $1,022. Any hunter
who takes an alligator must com-
plete and send in an Alligator
Harvest Report Form. The infor-
mation gathered from these forms
enables FWC biologists to moni-
tor population trends and impacts
of the annual harvest.
An Alligator Trapping Agent
License is also available for $52,
which allows the license holder
to assist a trapper in taking alliga-
tors, but only in the presence of
the permitted trapper. All persons
seeking a harvest permit must be
at least 18 years old by Sept. 1,
and only one harvest permit per
person will be issued.

Q: Is it okay for me to rely on
frozen dinners for my meals if
they are healthy ones ?
A: Frozen dinners that limit
fat and sodium content are a
good start compared to many
other frozen meals. Regular ver-
sions of these dinners can con-
tain 30 to 55 grams of fat and
700 to 2,100 milligrams (mg) of
sodium per serving. You should
check the nutrition information
on these healthier dinners, how-
ever. Some products designed
for weight control reduce the fat
and calorie content, but sodium
content can still be 600 to 800.
mg. Depending on your other -
food choices for the day, this
high amount of sodium makes
it difficult for a person to -stay
under the American Institute for
Cancer Research's (AICR) rec-
ommended limit of 2,400 mg for
- the whole day. In fact, the new-
est Institute of Medicine recom-
mendations say that it's best to
stay under 1,500 mg to prevent
and control high blood pressure.
If you plan to eat frozen dinners
frequently, the health-oriented
meals that keep sodium at 400
to 600 mg are better. You should
also keep in mind that even the
healthier frozen dinners can have
small quantities of vegetables. In
fact, some products that feature
vegetables in their name place
cornstarch higher on the list of
ingredients than any vegetable. If
you create vegetable sides for the
healthier kinds of frozen dinners,
you can have a delicious meal
that is much more nutritious.
While convenient frozen meals
are heating, open a bag of ready-
to-eat salad. Or microwave a bag
of microwavable, prewashed
spinach, serving it with a splash
of balsamic vinegar or a sprinkle
of Parmesan cheese. Salad bars at
grocery stores can provide either
salads or chopped vegetables for
a quick stir-fry at home. Many
kinds of fully prepared fruits are
also available. Since some health-
oriented convenience meals can
be a little low in calories, eating
extra vegetables and fruits can
make these meals more satisfy-
ing and sustain your energy for
several hours.
Q: I got a pedometer to help
me walk more. What is a reason-
able goal?
A: A target of 10,000 steps a
day has been linked with many
health benefits. However, mid-
dle-aged women in a recent
study, who began using pe-
dometers, had an average step
count below 5,000 steps a day.
Only seven percent walked over
10,000 steps a day. To see what
is a realistic goal for you, record
your step count on several typical
days that don't include any extra
walking. If your present count is
considerably below 10,000 steps,
it will be physically and psycho-
logically easier for you to start
by setting a target of 1,000 more
steps a .day. Even a 10 percent
increase is a good goal. After a
week or so, increase your target
again. Studies show that people
can walk significantly more with
simple lifestyle changes. For ex-
ample, hangede w 'where youiu .park,.

or exit from mass transporta-
tion. Take the steps instead of
elevators. To reach 10,000 steps,
however, people usually have to
set aside- time for walking. Even
if you fall short of 10,000 steps,
any increase you do achieve and
continue long-term will help you
control your weight, lower your
cancer risk and improve the state



of your health.
The American Institute for Cancer
Research (AICR) offers a Nutrition

Hotline (1-800-843-8114) 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. ET Monday-Friday. This free
service allows you to ask questions
about diet, nutrition and cancer. A
registered dietitian will return your
call, usually within 48 hours. AICR is
the only major cancer charity focus-
ing exclusively on the link between
diet, nutrition and cancer. The Insti-
tute provides education programs
that help millions of Americans learn

to make changes for lower cancer
risk. AICR also supports innovative
research in cancer prevention and
treatment at universities, hospitals
and research centers across the U.S.
The Institute has provided over $65
million in funding for research in
diet, nutrition and cancer. AICR's
web address is www.aicr.org. AICR
is a member of the World Cancer Re-
search Fund International.

Finuff was upset that a crew
began working on the home
without checking with her first.

Finuff's 83-year-old sister lives
there and requested help from

earlier. About a year ago, she
made another request.
Finuff said she took over mort-

October of 2003 to help out her

sister, who pays rent in exchange
for her assistance. The building
served as a group home for many
years until regulations changed
and the clients Holland once took

"Some work was being done

check the deed to the property
which would have shown she
was the owner. "They just did'
not look far enough for a deed...
or they looked just far enough to
find something they could use,"
she said.
Angry that "they bypassed me
all together," she said, "You don't
know whose house they fixed that
they shouldn't have.,"
Finuff said the deed in the
grants office file is from another
piece of land she previously
owned that adjoined Hosford
School. She has since sold that
site to the Liberty County School
Kady readily admits he erred
when he looked at the deed,
which include both sisters' names
as well as the designation "life
estate." which is a green-light
for rehabilitation projects. He
explained that the term "life es-
tate" means the resident will stay
at the home until their death; after
which lime, the property will go
to a family member. "We have a
right to assist people under that
situation," he said.
"It was an honest mistake,"
Kady said, noting that he pulled
a deed under Holland's name and
the information appeared to con-
firm what he had expected to see.
He didn't verify the lot numbers
or location listed, because, "I just
assumed it was the property we

were working on."
He said he felt he'd checked
it out. "We've known Dorothy
Holland for years. We're not
investigators. We go out there
and take it for what it's worth and
what the people afe telling us."
He said no one complained
when they made repairs on Hol-
land's air conditioning in 2004.
"Why was there not a problem
there?" he asked.
He said they did about $5,900
in work on the home, including
earlier repairs to the air con-
ditioner and more recent work
fixing up a bathroom before the
project was halted.
S"'Dorothy never told us she'd
sold her house to her sister,"
said Grants Coordinator Ricky
Revell. "My field representative
took it for granted that it was still
Revell added, "It wasn't done
w ith any malice. We tried to
help someone who came to us
for help."
Dorothy Holland declined to
comment on the story.

At last month's special meet-
ing, commissioners brought up
the idea of a community board to
decide whose homes should get
repairs. A board had been formed'-
earlier but later disbanded. One
of the participants said it was
simply too much work, according
to Butcher.
He and L.B. Arnold would
like to see the community board
re-established. Two people have
already volunteered and they are
looking for three others. Not only
would the group prioritize the
repairs to be made, they would
help with some of the paperwork
that is overwhelming the grants
office, according to Butcher.
"'If you have somebody's name
on \ ur list to do their.house, you
have to go to that house, find out
that they still live there and get
any new information," he said.
"Things can change in two or
three years."
"All I'm asking is that before
they start to work at anybody's
house, they need to get their pa-
perwork in order. If they can't,
we'll find somebody who can,"
he said.

Bronson has taken legal action
against two. South Florida mov-
ing companies for, \ioations
.of the Intrastate Moving Act
following an undercover sting
operation inm olk ing the Depart-
ment and the Alachua County
Sheriff's Department. One man.
-was charged w ith a misdemean-
or violation and numerous ad-

against the companies.
The Department of Agricul-.
ture .and Consumer Services
regulates mov ing companies
that conduct business within the
state of Florida. The Intrastate
Moving Act, passed b\ lawmak-,
ers several years ago to respond
to a growing number of com-
plaints about abuses, requires-
movers to: provide a written es-
timate to consumers; accept sev-
eral forms of payment, including
cash, check or major credit card;
get a signed contract prior to tak-
ing possession of any household
good;: and inform a consumer
where goods will be stored prior
to delivery.
Investigators with the Depart-
ment's Office of Agricultural
Law Enforcement (OALE) and.
Division of Consumer Services
began their investigation after
being contacted in July. by the
Alachua County Sheriff's Of-
fice. That office had received
a, complaint from consumers.
who were moving from Weston,
Florida, to Gainesville. Adam
Heward and Meredith Mont-

ing a written and signed contract
which detailed the cost of the
move as required by law. The
movers then demanded payment
for more than $1,000 over the
original estimate. The victims
signed the contract and were
then told they could pay half the
cost when the goods were deliv-
ered but the second installment
had to be paid in cash.
The household goods were
picked up on June 30 with a July
1 scheduled delivers date. On
July 1, when the victimss .called
the mo% ers. the movers could
not give the conuumners a firm
date of when the goods would
be delivered and did not inform
them were the property was be-
,ing held, also in violation of
Florida law. On July 8, Mont-
gomery was able to get a con-
firmed date of delivery of July
9, and once again she asked how
she was supposed to pay and the
only option was cash. The call
was recorded by the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office as part
of the investigation.

when traveling
In the wake of high gas prices,
you may be pondering whether you
need to dish out the cash on a pre-
mium variety for your summer get-
aways, or if it's okay to be thrifty
and go for. a lower grade. Typically,
"regular" gas has an octane of 87,
midgrade is 89 and "premium" is
91 or 92. Will that higher octane get
you better gas mileage or help your
car run better? Probably not, say car
Contrary to popular belief, the
octane rating doesn't indicate how
much power the fuel delivers; all
grades of gasoline contain roughly
the same amount of power. Rather, a
higher octane rating means the fuel
is less likely to cause your engine to
knock or ping (also known as deto-
nation). This effect occurs when
\our engine suffers from an "explo-
sion" instead of a controlled fuel
bum. High-octane gas is formulated
to bum slower than regular, mak-
ing it less likely to ignite. But not
all cars are prone to detonation. Un-
less your owner's manual states that
you use a specific fuel octane, filling
up with regular gas ,. ill get the job
done. In fact, most cars are designed
to run on regular-gas without prob-
lems of pinging and knocking.
Some drivers believe that pre-
mium is purer or contains deter-
-gents that will clean your engine
of deposits. However, government
regulations require detergents in all
grades of gasoline, so your engine is
getting cleaned regardless.
Therefore, unless you want to
spend unnecessary dollars when
you fill your gas tank, know that
you can safely use the regular kind.
And that will keep more money in
your wallet!

War I Veterans

and the difficult times they had
compared to what we have to-
The most recent addition to
Johnson's repertoire of good deeds
for World War I veterans hap-
pened earlier this year. News from
Puerto Rico about a 113-year-old
veteran reached Johnson through
family members living there. He
knew he had to go there and meet
the veteran, Emiliano Mercado del
Toro, in person.
"I was .trying to find him and
was having trouble. A few days
before I was scheduled to go back
to California, we found him. I
called, visited him and his fam-
ily." Johnson can't help smiling
as he recalls the meeting. "It was
pretty amazing to meet someone
that old -- the oldest living man --
and veteran."
Within three days back in L.A.,
Johnson was in touch with the
Guinness Book of World Records
and started the application.process
for Mercado del Toro. It took a
series of documents to prove he
was who he said he was -- Guin-
ness has a rigorous standard for
accurate verification. One of the
documents was a letter from VA
verifying his birth date. The pro-
cess took two months, with John-
son working as liaison between
the family and Guinness.
On Jan. 17, Guinness certified
Emiliano Mercado del Toro as the
world's oldest man and announced
it to the world. Johnson went back
to Puerto Rico to present the cer-
tificate on Jan. 28 with much me-
dia attention.
"It was probably the highlight
of my life," said Johnson, "to be
able to pei>sonallx present a Guin-
ness world record certificate to the
oldest documented living man and
to have been involved in getting
him certified. The family was very
grateful." ,
Dwindling Numbers
It's hard to know exactly how
many World War I veterans are
left, but Johnson estimates there
are about 30. The numbers are
dwindling so fast that in another
two years, there may be none. Un-
fortunately, not everyone knows
the sacrifices these men made,
and Johnson dedicated much of

his life to bringing their stories to
the public. Asked what he's go-
ing to do once all the World War I
veterans are gone, Johnson didn't
miss a beat.
"I am beginning to get involved
with World War II veterans," he
said with a laugh. "I just started
a project over the last six to eight
months to identify any World War
II veterans who received the Med-
al of Honor for heroism in France
and were not nominated to receive
the French Legion of Honor. I

Had it not been for his old
neighbor Jack opening.his eyes, he
probably would never have gotten
involved with these veterans.
"It really was a bit of fate,"
Johnson said. "It was an extraor-
dinary opportunity to share their
lives and it's a very important
legacy we can't let our younger
generations forget."

Here's what can be done to repair

your storm damaged landscape

The forces of nature can be
extraordinarily powerful and
terribly destructive. Hurricane
Dennis dealt a mighty blow to
Northwest Florida's already
weakened landscapes. It will
be very important that hurricane
damaged plants be cared for as
soon as possible.
Cleanup is the first priority.
It's 'important to remove fallen
leaves, branches and other de-
bris as quickly as possible. This
will not only benefit your lawn
but allow you to better evaluate
the condition of your shrubs and
Sadly, a large fallen tree is
a loss cause as a general rule.
However, there's a good chance
that small young trees and shrubs
will survive if you can reset them
quickly. If you are unable to im-

by Theresa Friday,
Extension Horticultural
Agent, Santa Rosa County

mediately reset the fallen plant,
protect their root system from
drying out. Place soil, moist
burlap sacks or moist sphagnum
moss on the exposed roots until
they can be reset.
Once reset, trees should be
held in position with stakes or
guy wires. Trees with trunk di-
ameters less than two inches
can usually be anchoredby two
or three 48-inch, 2-by-2 inch
wooden stakes. Place the stakes
about a foot outside the root ball
and insert them at least 18 inches
into the soil. Secure the stake to
the trunk with ties made from
wide, smooth material or hose-

covered twine. Trees two inches
or larger in diameter should be
guyed with three or four cables.
Be sure to mark the support guys
with bright materials to prevent
accidents. Adjust the guys sev-
eral times during the growing
season so that girdling and inju-
ry to the trunk is minimized. All
support stakes and guys should
be removed after one year.
Broken and torn limbs will af-
fect the shape, as well as the gen-
eral health of a plant. It's best to
properly prune the plant to avoid
additional damage. Always
make clean, even cuts. Where
possible, cut branches back to
major limbs or the main trunk,
cutting just outside of the branch
Large branches that are too
heavy to hold while cutting re-
quire three separate cuts to pre-
vent bark stripping. Make the
first cut on the lower side of the
branch away from the trunk and
one third of the way through
the branch. Make the second
cut downward through the limb
from the top, starting about one
inch beyond the first cut. The
weight of the branch may cause
it to snap off before the cut is
complete..The remaining stub is
easily supported with one hand
while you cut it from the tree,
again ensuring that it is cut out-
side the branch collar.
'The old recommendation was
to paint wounds to protect the
cut surface from wood-rotting
organisms and cracking upon
drying. Research has shown,
however, that wound dressings
do not prevent decay.
Where bark injury has oc-
curred, cut away ragged edges
to make a clean, smooth wound.
It is not necessary to paint the
wound with a wound dressing.
In cases where all branches
have been destroyed, it may be
wise to remove the entire plant
especially trees such as pine,
which do not normally regain
their natural form. With other
trees such as oaks, where strong
bottom limbs still exist, it may be
wise to keep the tree. However,
emerging sprouts from the ends
of large, cut limbs will be poorly
secured to the tree and are likely
to fall from the tree during a fu-
ture storm.
Tip of the Week All plants
that have been exposed to salt
water should be irrigated with
fresh water as soon as possible.
Apply more water, and water
more frequently than under nor-
mal conditions.

dential Horticulture Extension

Hurricane Dennis is gone and so are the blood donors

from Southeastern
Community Blood Center
In the aftermath of Hurricane
Dennis the Southeastern Com-
munity Blood Center (SCBC)
has seen a significant drop in
blood donations and asks donors
to please resume giving blood.
Understandably, as Hurricane
Dennis rushed toward the Flori-
da Panhandle, groups cancelled
weekend blood drives. SCBC
depends on an estimated 100 do-
nations a day on mobile units.
"It is understandable that
when a storm hits and our daily
routine is interrupted that it is
difficult to get back on track
with our normal activities. We
are certainly grateful for the
support of donors and respect
their need to take care of per-
sonal concerns. However, we
ask our donors to please be
mindful of the continuing need
for blood and their special role
in saving lives and ask them
to donate as soon as it is con-
venient for them," says Jeanne
Dariotis, Southeastern Commu-
nity Blood Center CEO.
