T hree life sentences were

but he's got plenty of time to think
about it after Circuit Court Judge-
Hentz McClellan sentenced himn
to three concurrent life sentences
v without parole and 25 years for an
earlier parole iolatioi.
His sur\i\ing \ictim. Gerald
Wells. 61. wanted him to speak
during the Aug. 3 hearing in Blount-

an explanation and an apology. He
got neither.
Shortly after his arrest, Marshall told in\ estigators that
he loved his grandmother and would ne\ er do anything
to hurther. said Calhoun County Sheriff's Deparmlent
Investigator Ken Futch. About the onl\ other thing he
said was that he wanted a lawyer, according to Futch..
"He's been pretty closed-mouthed about the whole
thing." said Marshall's public defender, Walter Smith.

Boy, 13, charged

after joyride in stolen

car ends in ditcl K
A 13-year-old car thief on ajoyrijte picked up
two friends before driving the vehicle pt6 a'ditch
last week in Calhoun County.
A visitor had parked a 1993 Toyota Tercel at
Sutton Creek Apartments on NW Mayo Street
Aug. 2 and was away from.the vehiclee when a
witness saw the young boy slip into the driver's
seat and take off around 3:30 p.m., according to
Blountstown Police Chief Glenn Kimbrel.
The person using the car, which was registered
toImogeneWaterson. waited for about a half hour
in hopes that the boy would come back before
reporting the theft. Someone from the apartments
went looking for the car and spotted the vehicle
turning down a drt road..
The boy picked up two friends about three miles
south on Hwy. 71, Kimbrel said. He then drove
down Kenny's Mill Road, a graded road bet\ een
Hwy. 69 South and Hwy. 71. "The condition of the
road was extremely wet," Kimbrel said. "He lost
control on a cure and ended up in a ditch." His
tw o passengers one 15. the other. 17- bailed
out and ran into the \w oods. The dri\ er stayed \ ith-
the car. The vehiclee was not damaged.
Tracking dogs were used to trail the passengers,
who \ ere found about a half mile from the scene;
"After inter\ iew ing the driver. \ie determined
they weren't involved with the theft and they w\ ere
released to their parents," the police chief said.
The boy who took the car already has a criminal
history and was charged with auto theft.

Two arrested after

routine trafficstop
.A poorly-displayed temporary tag and a loud
radio caught the attention of deputies from the
Calhoun County Sheriff's Department last week
and led to the arrest of two men. one of whom
was wanted on an outstanding warrant from Leon
County.
Deputies Mark Mallory and Eddie Dalton no-
ticed a GMC Jimmy traveling on State Road 71
around 8 p.m. Aug. 1. Because there was no visible
tag onthe vehicle. the officers conducted a routine
traffic stop about two miles south of Blountstown,
according to a report from the sheriff's depart-
ment.
As they approached the vehicle, the officers saw
a temporary tag improperly displayed in the back
window without a light and then spotted one of the
passengers open the door and toss something out.
After twice requesting that Willie A. Baker turn
the radio down, the deputies spoke with him and his
two passengers. During a search, a small amount
of cocaine was found in a piece of rolled-up paper
towel in Baker's pocket. .
When deputies looked through a green canvas
bag in the backseat where passenger Jerry Michael
Lewis, 49, was sitting, they reported finding a
matchbox with a piece of crack cocaine and two
small pieces of a Brillo pad, an item used to secure
crack inside a pipe. They also found a pipe and a
stem, commonly used to clean pipes.
After running a computer check, they found that
Lewis was wanted in Leon County. :
Lewis was charged with possession of cocaine
and possession of drug paraphernalia. Baker was
charged with possession of cocaine. A third man
traveling with them was not charged.

Hitchhiker's arm broken when hit by car
roadside mishap between a hitchhiker and the passenger's side
mirror of a passing car sent a woman to the emergency room with a
possible broken arm last week, according to a report from the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department.
Candy Goodman was along County Road 274. just west of Porter
Grade Road on Aug. 3 when she was hit by a passing car driven by
: Natasha McClain.
McClain, who was westbound, reported seeing an arm sticking
out into the road from the north side. She told deputies it appeared

rowed truck led officers
on a hunt Friday after
he fled from a state

around after passing
him on a highway west

Joseph Harlin

S| eling on State Road
'i 20 through Calhoun
Ki ;1; a County when Florida
Highway Patrol trooper,
Rusty Sisk passed him. Sisk saw Rimes almost hit
a van head-on when he pulled out to pass four cars
in a curve. The trooper turned around to stop Rimes
but lost sight of his truck.
Just east of County Road 287. Rimes made a quick
turn onto a private road that led behind the home of
DavidA. Smith. When the road stopped, he kept go-
ing. plowing into the %woods with the -white pickup
to get out of sight of the main road.
When the trooper stopped at the home to ask
Smith's wife if a vehicle had come through. she said
no. After he left. she became \ worried and called her
husband. When he later came home, he \went to the
back of the property to investigate. About a quarter
mile into the woods, he found the truck stuck in the
mud not far from a creekbed and contacted authori-
ties.
Meanwhile, the driver had walked away and re-
turned to the highway where Major Roman Wood
found him.
Deputies were curious about \what prompted him
to run, particularly after hearing that the truck's
owner said he had loaned the vehicle to Rimes so he
could travel to Panama City to appear in court on a
charge of driving with a suspended license.
"That's pretty weak charge:for him to be running
like that," commented Lt. Adam Terry. "We had no
idea w hat he was running for." Terry added they sus-
pected that the truck might have been stolen. When
they got to the scene, deputies found that the vehicle's
steering column was broken and later learnedit was
that \ ay when the current owner purchased it.
Rimes was charged with fleeing and eluding a

ped when truck lands


'ing Saturday accident


'Driver trapl


on arm dur
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A 17-year-old from Eastpoint
was ejected andpinned under a
pickup after he lost control of
the vehicle around midnight Sat-
urday, five and a half miles north
of Sumatra.
Curtis Dewayne Whiddon
was traveling north on Forest
Road 123, about a half mile from
County Road 379, when he failed
Sto negotiate a sharp curve to the
left. He oversteered, causing
the rear of the pickup to rotate
counterclockwise before the
1990 Chevrolet rolled onto the
driver's side.
His three passengers Da-
kota Aaron Wilson, 18, Joshua
James Sellers, 16 and Ashley
Ronald Raffield, 19, all from the
Sumatra community climbed
out of the truck and escaped with
minor injuries, according to FHP
Trooper Brunzell Lawrence.
Two of the passengers walked
out to the road to flag down a pass-.
ing car while the third boy stayed
with Whiddon at the scene.
No one was wearing seatbelts.
Because the driver's door latch
was broken, a bungee cord had
been used to hold it shut, the
trooper said.
Whiddon landed in a small
indention in the ground which
gave him some protection when
the truck rolled over him, accord-
ing to Laa\ rence. The truck came
to rest on its side over his out-
stretched arm and trapped him.
"It was fortunate he was in a swell
in the ground. The k a3 the truck
was laying with him underneath,
it could have been a lot worse,"
Lawrence said.
A bent door frame helped sup-
port the truck and kept it from
-crushing the teen, according
to Liberty County Emergency


Services Director Ben Guthrie.
Volunteers gathered around the
truck to keep it stable while
waiting for the Jaws of Life to,
arrive. In the mean time a winch
from a wrecker was attached to
the truck.
.The Jaws of Life, which are
usually transported in the Liberty
County ambulance, had been left
behind at the ambulance bay for
the second time that night. Earli-.
er when responding to a call near
Telogia, the crew realized too late
that the Jaws had been left. The
Blountstown Fire Department
had been called to the first wreck;
Calhoun County's Nettle Ridge
Fire Department was called to


the scene of the second accident.
They brought their rescue truck
outfitted with extraction tools and
other rescue equipment.
All four occupants of the truck
were taken to the emergency
room at Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital by ambulance, suffer-
ing from lacerations and broken
bones, the trooper said.
The cause of the wreck is still
under investigation. Lawrence
said it appeared the truck was
traveling too fast for the road
conditions and said a cooler con-
taining several bottles of beer was.
tossed out when the truck turned
over. Charges. are pending.

It's time to rethink racial profiling


In the summer of 1787, 55
delegates from 12 states
gathered in Philadelphia and
wrote the United States Constitu-
tion. The Constitution went into
effect on June 21, 1788 after
being ratified by nine states. The
Constitution has been amended
26 times since its ratification, and
it is the fundamental law of the
United States of America.
For individuals, the first 10
amendments, known as the Bill
of Rights, are the most important
part of the Constitution because
these amendments define our
personal freedoms. Within the
Rule of Law, Americans can say
and do whatever they wish.
The problem is that it's not
1788 anymore. The year is 2005,
and America is faced with a se-
rious terrorist threat. But in the
face of this threat, we want to
cling to our cherished personal
freedoms. We want to continue
doing whatever we want to do,
be free as birds, but yet expect
someone to protect us from ter-
rorist attacks.
Unfortunately, we can't have
it both ways. We may have to
give up some of our personal
freedoms, at least temporarily,
while we collectively figure out
how to combat the terrorists
who seem determined to destroy
America.
After the bombings in the
London subway system, New
York City officials instituted a
search of bags for people us-
ing the New York City subway
system. Makes sense to me; I
would hate to be in the bowels
of the New YoirkCity subway
system when a bomb planted by
a terrorist blew my sb.iwl : car
to bits.
Some Americans don't see
it as I do. Some New York-
ers balked at anyone searching
their bags. The American Civil
Liberties Union jumped into the
fray declaring that searching a

person's bags.violates his or her
rights. The city compromised
with a policy of "no search, then
no ride."
The ACLU is misguided in
their efforts to prohibit the search
of bags before a person is permit-
ted on public transportation. The
ACLU would probably have a
different opinion if one of them
were transformed into a grease
spot by a terrorist bomb.
In the many columns that I
ha'e w ritten.I've always sup-
ported individual rights. I still
do, but we collectively have to
protect ourselves.
I will not be insulted if some-
one checks my bags before I get
on a subway. The government
already checks bags for airline
travel. Why is getting on a sub-
way or bus any different.?
It's time to rethink racial pro-
filing. Who are the people
that are terrorizing the western
world? They are from the Middle
East. So, the authorities should
concentrate on people from
the Middle East when they are
searching.for terrorists.
That comment will irritate
a lot of Americans of Middle
Eastern descent, but so be it. I'd
say the same thing if the terrorists
were white supremacists, or the
Ku Klux Klan, or any other group
of nut cases.
Racial profiling is not a pretty
thiln Innocent people will be-
embarrassed or humiliated, but so
be it. T' \ not 1788 anymore. It is
2005, and we collectively face a

don't.defend KKK extremists
when they burn Afro-Ameri-
can churches or threaten black
people. We want their heads on
a stick.
The Moslems of the world
should feel the same about the
extremists in their ranks that are
creating havoc in the western
world.
The government should profile
whoever is suspect. The govern-
ment should take a tough stand,
as has the British government. If
they are suspected of being a ter-
rorist, or a terrorist sympathizer,
then lock them up and/or deport
them.
I don't care if they were born
here. I don't care if they are
American citizens. The London
bombers were also-homegrown.
They were British citizens, but
they were also young men with
crazy ideas.
It doesn't matter if you are
killed by a homegrown, mis-
guided idealist, or a hardcore
terrorist from a Middle Eastern
country.. You are still dead. Not
a good option.


President Bush said that even though Rafael Palmeiro
apparently lied to Congress about taking steroids, he's a friend
and he is standing by him. After hearing this Karl Rove started
wolfing down steroids. --JAY LENO

President Bush believes Rafael Palmeiro. He said he considers
Palmeiro a friend and tests or no tests, he believes him. Maybe
Rafael Palmeiro is the one who told him there were weapons
of mass destruction. -JIMMY KIMMEL

King Fahd has died and in respect, the Saudi family lowered
the flag and raised oil prices. -JAY LENO

President Bush is taking his summer vacation. This is his
fiftieth vacation in the last five years -- that's about the national
average isn't it? During his five-week vacation, he will continue
to receive national security briefings: He won't be reading them,
but he will receive them. DAVID LETTERiA

President Bush is vacationing in Crawford, Texas. He will be
vacationing for five weeks. That's a long time. I don't think he
has an exit strategy for his vacation either. --DAVID LETTERMAN

President Bush says schools should teach kids the theory of
intelligent design, which says that the creation of life is way
too complex to be understood by scienceand we should leave
those questions for God. Of course, President Bush also felt the
same way about Algebra JAY LENO

It's been a tough week for the Bush family. First, close friend
and Orioles baseball player Rafael Palmeiro tested positive for
steroids and, on Monday, Bush's friend King Faha'd of Saudi
Arabia tested negative for being alive. JON STEWART

President Bush is the fittest president in history. They said it's
because he spends a lot of time exercising. See a lot of our
previous presidents wasted that time reading. JAY LENO

It was reported that an anti-Hillary website was only able to
raise $12,000. When asked why, Bill Clinton said, "That's all I
had." CONAN O'BRIEN

"President Bush is on a" working vacation." And staff say it is
an important time because it's time for him to kick back. And I'm
thinking, when does this guy kick forward? DAVIDLETTERMAN

President Bush nominated John Bolton as the new ambassador
to the U.N. He did it while the Senate was in recess.' Democrats
say President Bush circumvented the system to get his way.
And President Bush says, That's ridiculous. I've never
circumvented anything,l'm not even Jewish." -JAY LENO

Bush tried to turn the spotlight on John Bolton's positive
characteristics. For example, did you know he was born of
human parents? -JON STEWART

President Bush got his energy bill passed. It includes his new
logging program -- no tree left behind. --JAY LENO

WE HAVE PROBLEMS
TO LEARN TO
DEPEND ON GOD
Text: 2 Cor. 18-11
Moses, stood on the shore of the
Red Sea with over a million terrified
people. In front of them Pharaoh's en-
tire army was racing toward them full
of bad intentions. Behind them there
was the Red Sea and no place to go. As
the cloud of dust rose higher and higher
and the thunder of horses' hooTves gre w'
louder and louder, the people cried out
to God.
They all thought they were going to
die thatday. But God made aA a. %here
there was no way God t.ld Ml:s-
"Why are you crying out to Me? Tell
the ,rjaeliites t move on. (NIV)." God
opened up the Scj and all uof Hi- people
crossed over on dry ground. But when
the Ijl IIsrieIIe reached the otbei ,h,'re.
God ci_,edj up the seJ and dri-... rjed the
enulre arm) ihat a as pursuing them
across the bottom of the sea.
If you are a Christian, at some point
in your life, God will allow something
to happen that will stretch your faith
to the limit. Henry Blackaby calls it a
crisis of belief. James Dobson says it is
when God doesn't make sense. It may
be a huge trial. It may be the death of
a loved one. It may be a tragic circum-
stance. Or it may be a task that is just
too big for you to handle alone. What-
ever it is. that God puts before you will
be bigger than you are.
At that point in your life, you will
have to make a pivotal decision. You
will have to decide to trust God and
follow Him even when it doesn't make
sense or to trust in yourself.
If you trust in yourself and turn
from God, you will miss out on experi-
encing God at His best. If you trust God
no matter what, He will mak. a way
where there is no way. You will be able
to endure far beyond your ability.

Displaced
ST. AUGUSTINE The go-
pher tortoise, aburrowing reptile
unique to the U.S. Southeast, is
gradually disappearing because
the dry, sandy upland where it
commonly dwells is ideal for
development.. But University
of, Florida researchers say. the
tortoise's ability to survive in
coastal areas may be one key to
future preservation efforts.
A UF study of gopher tor-
toises on small islands near St.
Augustine could reveal whether
displaced colonies can be suc-
cessfully relocated to similar
sites in Florida and other states,
said Dana Ehret, a doctoral stu-
dent with UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
"Not much is known about
gopher tortoise populations on
small islands, because research-
ers have pretty much. over-
looked them," Ehret said. "For
example, we don't know how
common these populations are,
how the tortoises cope with the
constant exposure to salt or how
they manage to keep their bur-
rows from being flooded by the
higher water table."
Gopher tortoise burrows are
a familiar sight in rural inland
areas from Louisiana to South
Carolina, the tortoise's native
range, he said. Marked by piles
of sand at their entrances, the
burrows can be 10 feet deep and
40 feet long. More than 360 oth-
er species use the burrows for
shelter.
The tortoises are protected by
Florida law and developers have
several options when specimens
are found in areas slated for
construction, Ehret said; They
can build at a distance from bur-
rows, move tortoises to other
parts of the same property, relo-

Liberty County Commission July 21 special meeting minutes


Official minutes from the Liberty County
Commission special meeting July 21, 2005
as recorded by the board secretary
The meeting was called to or-
der by Chairman John T. Sand-
ers. Present were Commissioners
L.B. Arnold, Dexter Barber, Albert
Butcher, Jim Johnson, Attorney
Shalene Grover and Clerk Robert
Hill.
The opening prayer was giv-
en by Pastor Jack Strader. The
Pledge of Allegiance was led by
Robert Hill.
Brett Hammond with the Ham-
mond Group gave a presentation
to the Board of his firm's plans to
help restore the Wesleyan Meth-
odist Church in Hosford. The
Board appointed the following to


serve on a committee to negoti-
ate a contract with the Hammond
Group: Judge Ken Hosford, Clerk
Robert Hill, Joe Red Shuler, Ste-
phen Ford, and Chairman John T.
Sanders. Motion by Johnson, sec-
onded by Butcher and carried to
approve this.committee.
Motion by Johnson, seconded
by Barber and carried to hire Eu-
gene Jacobs as a part-time equip-
ment operator for approximately
6 weeks at $12 per hour with no
benefits.
Easy Street was discussed. At-
torney Grover stated the County
does have an easement for this
property. The Board told the Road
Department to start grading this
road.


Some of the storm damage sustained in 2004
involved the infrastructure of Florida's investor-
owned electric utilities. including power lines,
poles, substations and transformers. Thefive
investor-owned utilities under the jurisdiction
of the Florida PSC (Florida Power & Light,
Progress Energy Florida, Tampa Eleclric
Company, Gulf Power Company, and Florida
Public Utilities Company) reported damages
of $1.45 billion from hurricanes Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne. These utilities
combined are responsible for approximately
78 percent of the state's retail electric energy
sales to about 8 6 million customers.

The extent of the damages and the powei
outages caused by the storms led many in
Florida to ask whether the state should adopt
a policy of burying its power lines. Statewide
decision on this matter rests with the
Legislature. However, the Public Service
Commission w.as asked by the Florida House
of Representatives to provide an estimate of
what it might cost; over a 10-year period, to
put transmission and distribution lines
underground.

The preliminary estimates of the cost of placing
transmission and distribution lines
underground is $146 billion. This figure applies
only to the lines owned by the investor-owned
electric companies and does not include those
operated by municipal utilities or electric
cooperatives.

Florida's investor-owned utilities have a total
of 14.566 miles of transmission lines, the value
of which is about $2 4 billion, only 183 miles
of which are underground. Transmission lines
are those that carry high voltage current -
typically 69,000 to 500,000 volts significant
distances. A transmission normally ends at
an electric substation, where the voltage is
reduced for distribution The estimated cost
to bury these transmission lines is $52 billion.


Arnold discussed the need for
a building in Sumatra. The Board
instructed the Clerk to check with
building inspector Joe Red Shul-
er and come up with a plan and
prices.
Arnold informed the Board that
he would not be able to attend the
August 4 meeting.
Grants Director Ricky Revell
presented the Historic Preserva-
tion Grant agreement for the Hos-
ford Wesleyan Methodist Church
to. the Board. Motion to approve
by Butcher, seconded by Arnold
and carried.
Motion by Barber, seconded
by Johnson and carried to ap-
prove advertising, administrative
services for Historic Preservation-


normally transport lower voltage current -
usually 2,400 to 35,000 volts shorter
distances Distribution lines may take
electricity to "step-down' transformers for
distribution directly to homes and businesses.
The estimated cost of burying distribution lines
is $94 billion.

Because these figures are estimates, they
could change substantially subject to a number
of variables.

Some cities and counties in Florida require
power lines in new residential developments
be placed underground In addition, in the
wake of the 2004 hurricane Season, a number
of communities around the state have initiated
plans to bury power lines.

A decision to place power lines underground
is one that is carefully weighed by those
communities engaged in the process
Underground power lines may be less
vulnerable to wind damage, for example, but
maybe more susceptible to flooding. Cost is
a major factor as is the additional time required
to diagnose and repair underground facilities
when problems do occur.

Elected officials, with their unique grasp of
their local communities, are the logical
decision-makers on the cost-benefit of placing
electric facilities underground.


Utilities in Florida:

Five.investor owned utilities.
33 municipal utilities.
18 rural electric cooperatives,
including two located outside Florida,
serving customers in the state.


Braulio L. Baez is the Chairman of the Florida
Public Service Commission. The PSC sets the
rates regulated utility companies charge for


Grant.
Revell told the Board of a need
for a registered survey for Veter-
ans Memorial Park. He stated Mr.
Snowden can re-certify a previ-
ous survey for $150. Motion by
Johnson, seconded by Butcher
and carried to approve payment
of $150.
EMS Director Rhonda Lewis
gave the Board an update on the
local mitigation strategy and asked
approval of Resolution 05-12. Mo-
tion by Johnson, seconded by
Butcher and carried to approve.
Motion by Johnson, seconded
by Butcher and carried to approve
Resolution 05-15..
Road Superintendent Sammy
Hanna discussed with the Board
the need for a secretarial person
to help with computer work and
other Road Department office re-
sponsibilities. Motion by Butcher
seconded by Johnson and carried
to advertise for this position.
Barber discussed the com-
plaints of loud music at the civic
center. The Board instructed At-
torney Grover to add a noise.

Motion by Barber. seconded by
Butcher and carried to approve
Chairman Sanders signing the
agreement with King and Spald-
ing concerning IRS audit of Geor-
gia Pacific Bond Issue.
Chairman Sanders brought to
the Board's attention a request


concerning -changing the coun-
ties dirt policy. After discussion the
Board's decision was to leave the
policy as is.
Sanders discussed a drainage
problem on Pea Ridge Road. The
existing culvert will not handle the
water. The Board instructed the
Road Department to install a larg-
er culvert.
Sanders discussed with the
Board the use of the LATCH build-
ing. Attorney Grover told the Board
that after hours use of this building
should be limited to LATCH or DJJ
programs. Any other use gives
the County liability problems. The
Board's decision was there will be
no use of the building unless di-,
rectly related to DJJ or LATCH.
Butcher discussed the following
items and asked they be place on,,

What does the PTA do for you?
We've all heard of the Parent and Teacher Association (PTA). It
may sponsor a bake sale, that holiday craft fair and a field trip here
and there, but what exactly is the main purpose of the association?
The mission of the PTA is to:
support and speak on behalf of children and youth in the schools,
in the community, and before governmental bodies and other organi-
zations that make decisions affecting children,
assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and
protect their children, and
encourage parent and public involvement in the public schools
of this nation.
Founded in 1897, the PTA has always supported better educa-
tion and safer schools for every child. It has spoken out on a range
of issues including advocating that kindergarten be part of the U.S.
education system and fighting for automobile safety-belt and child-
restraint legislation.
You can make a difference in the lives of all children by joining

to a confrontation ending with
Sansom's death. Wells was in

Wells said Marshall fired at him

"He has some hope that maybe in

he might be eligible for parole."
By entering, a plea last week,
he escaped the chance of being

Smith said none of the victim's
survivors wanted the state to
pursue the death penalty.
"He decided he didn't have a

Smith said, adding. "We didn't

Q: Does the cancer risk from
grilled meat come from both gas
and charcoal grills?
A: There is no evidence tc
suggest that the type of grill mat-
ters.
Grilling meat poses cancel
risk for two reasons. First, carci-
nogenic substances called poly-
cyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
(PAHs) rise up in the smoke
S and are deposited on the meat.
Second, heterocyclic amines
(HCAs) are formed when meal
protein reacts to the intense heat
of the grill. Neither kind of grill

* would prevent the formation of
SPAHs and HCAs, but you could
Restrict their formation by low-
ering the temperature.of the grill
and moving meat further away
From any flames,
S You could further 'reduce
t HCAs by marinating the meat
before grilling even a few min-
utes seems to be effective. You
should also avoid fatty meats
that tend to drip, cause smoke
create more PAHs. Since grilled
vegetables and fruits don't form
HCAs, you have another good
reason to limit the size of your
meat portions and focus on plant
foods when you grill.
Q: Is lemonade a good lon er-
calorie alternative to soda :
A: Unless you are referring to
lemonade sweetened with zero-
calorie sweeteners, lemonade is
not any lower in calories than an
equal portion of a regular car-
bonated soft drink.
Lemonade made from a fro-
zen concentrate or powdered
mix contains about 100 calories
in each eight-ounce portion. The
calories--in ;this portion come
from approximately. sLi-and-
a-half teaspoons of sugar. Al-
though sugar-has no nutritional
value. lemonade from a frozen


concentrate supplies about 15
percent of the recommended
daily amount of \itanmin C. But
because the calories and sugar
content adds up quickly. you
should consider lemonade a re-
freshing treat for an occasional
hot day. :.
Q: How do Ikno t what size
food portions to give my chil-
dren?
A: This is an important is-
sue. You don't want to provide
too little food for your children's
growth needs, but servings that
are too large tend to overwhelm
them.
Sen ing small portions to
young children is often the best
way for them to learn to eat un-
til the\ are satisfied, instead of
overeating. So start your chil-
dren off with less and encourage
them to ask for more if they're
:still hungry.
Experts suggest for each year
of their age. you should give chil-
dren one tablespoon of each food
served at a meal. This means that
three-year-olds would start with
three tablespoons of each food.
If they eat it all, they can ask for
more. IIMost importantly, don't
make the mistake of. scolding
children if they don't finish all


you serve them.
If you view their inability
to eat everything as a waste of
food, serve them less, instead of
forcing them to o6ereat. Respect.
your children's ability to tell
when they're had enough.
If the\ are suddenly hungry,
an hour after a meal because
they ate too little, refrain from"
handing out snacks. They will,
gradually learn to gauge their
ow\ n appetites arid eat enough at
meal times.
SQ: Are cooking sprays fat-
free?
A: Since cooking spray oils
are made of vegetable oils, they
do contain fat.
However, the spray cans pro-,
duce a portion so small that the
fat content in a standard ser ing
is insignificant. According to nu-
trition labeling laws. \when one
serving of a food contains less.
than 0.5 grams of a nutrient, that
number can be rounded down
to zero and the product can be
regarded as ha\ ing none of the
nutrient. In the case of fat and
cooking sprays; these products
can legally be labeled "fat-free."
However, some people use
very large amounts of oilspray s
and believe that they are still


getting zero fat. This is untrue.
A standard serving of a cooking
spray lasts 0.3 second and.usu-
ally contains 0.2 or 0.3 grams
of fat. If you spray for a longer
period of time, you need to ad-
just your calculation of the fat
content to determine ho\\ much
you are really getting. But you
shouldn't try to make all of your
foods fat-free. For good health,
%\e need some fat each day. T\\o
healthful choices when used in
moderation are oli e and canola
oils.

Cancer Research (AICR) offers

Soil moisture monitors help sprinkler systems save water and money


GAINESVILLE The cost
of keeping a lawn green could
get lower, thanks to soil moisture
monitors that make automatic
sprinkler systems more efficient,
says a University of Florida re-
searcher.
The devices can cut sprinkler
system water usage by more
than half, according to a recent
UF study. The findings were
presented at the annual meeting
of the American Society of Ag-
ricultural Engineers July 17-20
in Tampa.
Soil moisture monitors con-
tinuously check soil moisture
levels and prevent sprinklers
from operating when watering is
not needed, said Michael Dukes,
an assistant professor of agricul-
tural engineering with UF's In-
stitute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences. The monitors are not
widely used despite being avail-
able for more than a decade.
On average, U.S. homeown-
ers use almost 50 percent more
water outdoors than indoors, ac-
cording to a 2000 report by the
American Water Works Asso-
ciation. Because lawn care ac-
counts for most outdoor water
use, homeowners who reduce
unnecessary irrigation can save
bigon water bills, he said.
Sometimes, reduced water-
ing can even improve a lawn's
health overwatering encour-
t ages shallow\ root growthwhich
nmakei turfYa, less resistant to
stress and more susceptible to
some diseases, he said.
The soil moisture monitors
Dukes tested are marketed as ac-
cessories for automatic sprinkler
systems that use timers to sched-
ule." irrigation. These systems
are convenient to use but often
wasteful, he said.
'"We conducted a survey of
Florida homeowners from 2002
to 2004 that showed mostly-
grass landscapes are typically
given t\\o-and-a-half times the
water they need," he said. "The
monitors we studied, priced
from $75 to $350, could pay for
themselves within one year in
areas where the cost of water is
high."
Dukes' six-month study evalu-
ated four commercially available
soil moisture monitors, using
them with timer-based sprinkler
systems on UF turfgrass research
plots. For comparison, he also
tested timer-based systenis with
no water-saving devices as well
as systems equipped with shut-
off devices called rain sensors.
Rain sensors are popular wa-
ter-saving options for automatic
sprinkler systems, but because
they measure rainfall rather than
soil moisture, they may not de-
termine a lawn's water needs ac-
curately, Dukes said.
The UF study showed sys-
tems equipped with soil mois-
ture monitors used 56 percent
less water on average than sys-
tems with rain sensors when the
timers were set to water, twice a
week. Systems with the moni-

Michael Dukes, an assistant professor with the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences in Gaines-
ville, holds equipment that measures soil moisture in a turfgrass
research plot. He says automatic sprinkler systems equipped
with soil moisture monitors use 56 percent less water on aver-
age than systems with no water-saving devices. The monitors
detect moisture in the soil and control the operation of sprinkler
systems.


on average than systems without
water-savingdeviceson a twice-
weekly watering schedule.
Use of the soil moisture mon-.


itors did not produce visible dif-
ferences in turf quality, Dukes
said.
The monitors are particularly


suitable for residential landscape
irrigation because they require
little effort from homeowners,
he said.
"For a timer-based system to
be water-efficient in a climate
like Florida's, it has to be ad-
justed seasonally to account for
heavy rains in the summer and
reduced water requirements in
the winter," Dukes said. "Hom-
eowners can avoid that incon-
venience if the sprinkler system
adjusts to soil conditions on its
own."
Soil moisture monitors are
composed of two. elements:
sensors that track the soil's wa-
ter content and an electronic
controller that can override the.
sprinkler system's watering
schedule if the sensors indicate
the soil is sufficiently damp. The
sensors, which detect moisture
by measuring how well the soil
conducts electricity, are buried
three or four inches underground
to monitor the region \\ hereturf-


grass roots are densest, he said.
Dukes plans to continue test-
ing the monitors, and is cur-
rently recruiting homeowners in
Pinellas County to participate in
a study investigating how much
water the devices save when
used on.actual residential land-
scapes, he said.
The devices will have to over-
come some skepticism to gain a
foothold in the residential mar-
ket, Mecham said. Some users
ha\e had bad experiences \\ith
soil moisture monitors, but he
believes problems are often re-
lated to poorly planned or im-
properly maintained sprinkler
systems.
"'People who install one of
these devices should understand
it will take some time to fine-
tune its performance." he said.
"But \e need to learn to trust
this technology- we need better
residential water management.
and soil moisture monitors are a
viable way to achieve that."-

Attorney general warns of phony car buyer scam


TALLAHASSEE Attor-
ney General Charlie Crist is-
sued a consumer alert warning
Floridians of an emerging scam
in which con artists target indi-
viduals trying to sell their ve-
hicles and other items.
The Attorney General's Of-
fice has received numerous com-
plaints from consumers across
the state reporting the over-
payment scam. In this scheme,
a thief selects the victim after
browsing through classified ads
for a car or other large-ticket
item offered for sale. The thief


pretends, to be an interested
buyer from out of town and
sends payment in the form of
a cashier's check, money order
or personal check. The payment
typically arrives in an amount
greater than the purchase price.
The con artist then asks
the seller to wire the overpaid
amount to another party or back
to the "purchasers," sometimes
explaining that the purchaser
lives in another country and the
third party will use the money to
ship the vehicle overseas. After
the money is wired, the original

"This is yet another example

people's trusting nature," said
Crist. "Unfortunately, Florid-

better protect themselves from

ida was suspicious when she re-
ceived an offer for $4,000 more
than the price of a truck she was
selling online. The buyer want-
ed Denton to wire the difference
back to them, but she felt un-
easy about the request and did
not accept the $8,000 cashier's
check. Another South Florida
couple fell victim to the scam
in January after they posted an
online ad for a Miami apartment
to rent. They were contacted by
a "student" from London stat-
ing he or she was interested in
the apartment and would send a
cashier's check for the rent. The
check was for $2,500 more than
the $1,000 the renters asked for.
The "student" asked the couple
to wire the difference back, say-
ing the overpayment was a mis-
take. After wiring the money
back, the couple realized the
original check was fraudulent
and they had lost their $2,500.
The Attorney General's Of-
fice offers the following tips to
avoid falling prey to this scam:
*Know who you are dealing
with. Independently confirm the
buyer's name, address and tele-
phone number. Keep in mind
that most legitimate buyers
would want to see a car before


buying it.
*Never accept ,payment for
more than the purchase price of
the item, no matter how tempt-
ing. Never wire money to the
buyer or a third party at the
buyer's request. If the buyer in-
sists that you wire back funds,
end the transaction-immediately
- legitimate buyers won't pres-
sure you to send money.
*If possible, accept only cash.
If you do accept a check for pay-
ment, do not turn over the car
until you verify that the check
has cleared the issuing bank.
*Request a check drawn on a
local bank or a bank \\ ith a lo-
cal branch, which allows you to
make a personal visit to make
sure the check is valid. If you
cannot get a check from a local
bank, call the bank where the
check originated and ask if it is
valid. Getthebank's phone num-
ber from directory assistance or
an internet site you know and
trust, not from the person who
gave you the check.
'Resist any pressure to "act
now." If the buyer's offer is
good now, it should still be
good after the check clears the
issuing bank.

August is a tough month for
gardening in Florida due to the
hot weather. Many people will
be tempted to stay indoors and
avoid the heat; however, gar-
deners know that there is still
plenty to do in the garden and
landscape.
August can be a very active
month in the vegetable garden.
Many of our warm season veg-
etables can be planted in Au-
gust including green beans,
lima beans, cucumbers, south-
ern peas, peppers, pumpkin,
summer squash, winter squash
and tomatoes. Be aware, how-
ever, that the late planted sum-
mer vegetables are more prone
to insect and disease problems
than the same crops planted in
the spring.
It's also a great time to plan
your fall vegetable garden.
Many cool season vegetables
can be planted in September.
It's important, however, to pre-

much organic matter to our
sandy soils since the climate
favors the rapid decomposition
of organic matter. Allow at
least three weeks between the
incorporation of amendments
and planting.
August is prime time for
lawn problems. Be on the
look out for spittlebugs in cen-
tipedegrass and chinch bugs
in St. Augustine lawns. A few
of these insects is usually not
a problem. However, if you
see noticeable damage to your
lawn, contact your local Exten-
sion office for control options.
Various lawn diseases are
also present at this time of
year. Frequent summer show-
ers, high humidity and warm
temperatures ,provide ideal
conditions for the develop-
ment of fungal diseases such
as gray leaf spot and brown
patch. Avoid contributing to a
favorable disease environment
by watering too often.
Consider adjusting your
mowing height up a notch or
two during the summer. The
more top growth the plant has
the more leaf area it has to har-
vest sunlight and ultimately
grow roots.
Take the time to scout your
trees and shrubs for problems.
Look for the azalea defoliator
caterpillar on azaleas. These
are large black caterpillars that
can strip the foliage very quick-
ly. Pick them off by hand or re-
move the twig they are on.
Tip of the Week This time
of year, don't be alarmed if
you notice a very odd gray to
black patch in your lawn. If
you look closely and see tiny,
round balls scattered over the
plant, you have a slime mold.
Slime molds normally live
on the soil where they feed on
decaying organic matter. They
do not feed on living plants,
but only use them for support
during reproduction. The dam-
age to turf and other plants
would be only from shading
them from sunlight, which:
may cause the leaf blades to
temporarily turn yellow.
Slime molds most often oc-
cur in wet weather. They dis-
appear rapidly as soon as it be-
comes dry. Control is usually
not necessary. You can break
up the masses by sweeping
with a broom or by spraying
with a strong stream of water.

No more mushy melon?

Eu'ST


by Sandy Miller Hays,
Agricultural Research Service
Remember summer picnics
where dessert was a gigantic,
juicy watermelon lolling in a
galvanized aluminum tub of icy-
cold water? I definitely do! On a
hot summer day, nothing could
have been more refreshing than
that cold, succulent melon.
The problem these days is,
I'd have to call in all the neigh-
bors on my block to be able to
polish off a big watermelon.
So, like other folks with smaller
families, my husband and I tend
to buy "fresh-cur" at the super-
market, and therein lies the rub.
Watermelon, as the name
indicates, is mostly water-92
percent water, to be precise. And
once you cut a watermelon into
chunks, in a surprisingly short
period of time you have slimy
mush instead of melon. That's
not good enough for the fresh-
cut- market, .which demands
firm, attractive fruit.
ARS scientists in Lane, Okla.,
have been testing a clever solu-
tion to this problem: They've
grafted, watermelon. tops onto
gourd and squash rpotstock!
Not only is the resulting melon
as much as 30 percent firmer,
but it also has resistance to
many soilborne pathogens such
as Fusarium that are the bane of
melon growers everywhere.
Fusarium are fungi that live
in the soil and attack the melon
plant at all stages of growth.
Melon growersin the U.S. have
fought this foe three ways: ro-
tating the fields, treating with
methyl bromide to kill the fun-
gus, and growing resistant cul-
tivars.
But the clock may be run-,


ning out on at least two of those
solutions. First, land is becom-
ing less available for rotations,
and second, methyl bromide is
being discontinued because of
environmental concerns (it's
thought to have a negative im-
pact on the ozone layer). As for
resistant cultivars, the varieties
that are available have varying
degrees of resistance, and even
then to only two of the three Fu-
sarium races.
Grafting melon plants onto
rootstock of squash, pumpkin
and gourd isn't exactly new.
Growers in Japan, South Korea
and some European countries
have done it for years, because
they haven't had the luxury of
enough land to rotate their crops
from field to field. But U.S. wa-
termelon growers haven't gone
that route because grafting was
considered too expensive and
because there was plenty of land
for rotation.
Now, though, there's renewed
interest in this technique in the
United States.
Watermelon's drawn a lot of
attention from ARS scientists in
recent years because it's been
found to contain more of the
health-promoting compound
lycopene per serving than any
other fruit or vegetable. Lyco-
pene is what gives watermelons
and tomatoes their red color,
and it's al!o thought to act as a
powerful antioxidant that might
help reduce the risk of age-re-
lated diseases. The ARS scien-
tists in Lane took a close look at
lycopene and sugar levels in the
grafted watermelons and said
neither was adversely affected.
The firmer fruit could be a big
plus for grow\ er.s because some


people predict that fresh-cut
watermelon and cantaloupe will
eventually be the biggest sellers
of all in the fresh-cut market,
far outpacing fresh-cut salads
and vegetables. So a melon that
doesn't turn to mush would be
extremely popular-and could
translate into premium prices
for the farmers.
The grafting process could
be beneficial for farmers in an-
other way, too. In recent years,
growers have spent as much
as $350 per acre on methyl
bromide treatments to control
Fusarium wilt in their melon
patches. Although the melon in-
dustry has resisted grafting wa-
termelon because of the added
cost, when weighed against the
savings from eliminating the
methyl bromide treatments, the
disease-resistant grafted trans-
plants become much more af-
fordable.
Early results indicate that
farmers may require fewer
grafted plants per acre to pro-
duce the same yields and may
need less fertilizer per acre-
more opportunities for produc-
tion cost savings.
This. technique could even
lead to creation of jobs, as de-
mand evolves for people who
can perform the grafting opera-
tions under controlled environ-
ments and then ship the grafted
plants throughout the country.
The ARS scientists still have
much exploring to do among
the various combinations of
watermelon and squash, gourd
and pumpkin rootstock to see
which ones .yield the best and
most melons. But this is defi-
nitely a story to watch!

Florida receives Medicaid waiver to help support children

with potentially life-limiting conditions and their families


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
Deputy Secretary and State Health
Officer for Children's Medical Ser-
vices (CMS), Joseph Chiaro, M.D.,
announced that Florida has been
awarded a federal waiver from the
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
Services for its Program for All-in-
clusive Care for Children (PACC),
an innovative program based on a
model of care developed by Chil-
dren's Hospice International (CHI)
for children with life-limiting con-.
ditions and their families. Florida is
Sthe first state to receive a Medicaid
waiver for this program.
"The Department of Health is
committed to caring for Florida's
most vulnerable residents and as-
sisting their families," said Chiaro.
"By providing key support services
to children and their families as
they cope with life-threatening
conditions, CMS, Florida Hospices
and Palliative Care and the Agency
for Health Care Administration
(AHCA) will not only ensure that
immediate needs are met, but will
--make a significant contribution to-
ward the quality of life of Florida's
most courageous children and fam-
ilies."
Jayne Parker, Partners In Care-
Together for Kids (PIC) project
manager and Bob Maryanski, for-
mer PACC project director, have
been in\ ited by Children's Hospice
International and U.S. House Rep-
Sresentative James P. Mloran to pres-
ent the Florida PACC model during
a congressional reception in VWah-
ington on July 26.
Florida's PACC program is.
called Partners In Care-Together
for Kids (PIC), a prograinthat of-
fers hospice-type support services
designed especially for children
diagnosed with life-threatening ill-
:. -nesses. The Florida model was cre-
ated through a partnership that in-
cludes the Department of Health's
-Children's. Medical Sen ices Net-
work, the Agency for Health Care
