After commissioner finds one "emergency" item that wasn't

Liberty Commission names committee to

prioritize applications for grants program

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
S our people have been appointed to serve on a
committee to prioritize the home repairs done
through the Liberty County Grants Department after
Liberty Commissioner Albert Butcher discovered one
home that had been put ahead f-22 others on the waiting
list for what turned out to be unnecessary repairs.
Norman Hall. Beth Eubanks, Betty Jean Beckwith
and Brenda Gail Clay, allof Bristol, were asked to serve
on the committee at last week's special meeting of the
Liberty County Commission.

Earlier this year. Butcher suggested that a citizens
group be formed to oversee the job list for the grants
department. He pushed a little harder last Thursday for
a committee to be named after checking on a roof repair
job that \\as done at the home of Johnnie and Alice
Arnold on Chester Street in Hosford.
Butcher had received calls from citizens questioning
the project and went to ha\e a look for himself. "We
all agreed to put a roof on because we thought his roof
was leaking." Butcher said. The item had been brought
up in a previous meeting as an emergency repair and

Butcher said he w ent to he Arnolds' home and talked
with Johnnie Arnold. "He said his roof wasn't even
leaking." Butcher told the board. "But he got put ahead
of everyone else on the list. That is not right. That is
not right."
Butcher reminded the board that there were many oth-
ers already in line for work to be done on their homes.
"I got a list that goes back probably to 1997 of people
that's still waiting," he said. "People keep getting added

Friday night in Liberty County. The unoccupied structure was located next to several
other residences in a mobile home park owned by the Bradwell family at the Ochlockonee:

Intoxicated man found

slumped over wheel of

truck parked in road
A Calhoun County man is facing a DUI charge after a deputy found
him unconscious in his truck while stopped in the eastbound lane of
NW County Road 274 at 12:55 a.m. Thursday.
After driving up on a white Chevrolet Blazer with its lights on
and motor running, Calhoun County Sheriff's Deputy Jared Nichols
turned on his emergency lights to warn other drivers as he stepped
out to check on the truck's sole occupant.
When he approached the vehicle, he found a white male later
identified as Tony Martin Maloy, 35 slumped over the steering
wheel, according to the report from the Calhoun County Sheriff's
The deputy opened the door to check on Maloy and noted the strong
smell of alcohol as he tried to awaken him. "After shaking him and
shouting at him for several minutes, Maloy finally sat up, however,
he was not very responsive," the deputy noted in his report.
While trying to conduct a roadside sobriety test, the deputy asked
Maloy where he was coming from. He replied that had been in
Blountstown, but in fact, was traveling toward Blountstown. "Maloy
initially stated that he was coming from a bar, however he could not
remember which one...he later mentioned Steison's and Midget's
Bar," according to the deputy.
After saying that he had consumed a six pack, Maloy later admitted
he "had a lot more than that." Maloy told the deputy, "You know
I'm intoxicated."
Maloy was taken into custody and while being booked in to the jail,
became angry, made an obscene gesture at the deputN and would not
take a breath test to determine his alcohol content, which resulted in
a charge of refusing to submit to a breath test. It was learned that his
drii'er's license had been previously suspended for refusing to submit
to a breath, urine or blood test to determine alcohol content.
He was booked into the county jail and later given a conditional
release.' : "

When asked to describe or de-

and artists would say "Blues is a
feeling." But what exactly does
that mean? Yes, Blues is an in-
digenous American music born
from African American history
and heritage. Yes, Blues is in-
tertwined with hardship and civil
rights. Yes, Blues is the musical
art form which is the foundation
of most popular music today in-
cluding Jazz, R&B, Rock .and
Hip Hop. But what is this "Blues
feeling" and where does it come

you will find out. The Apalachee
Blues Society (ABS) offers this
special program presented by in-
ternational Bluesman and Blues
educator Randall "Big Daddy"
Webster, who will be joined by
the brilliant multi-instrumental-
ist Jon Copps and master Blues
harmonica player Michael "Doc"
Palecki. Sponsored by the Flor-
ida Humanities Council, this in-
sightful tour through American
Blues music will .focus on the
deep feelings behind the music,
and the difficult history creating-
those feelings. American Blues
is the one of the most expres-
sive art forms; a living, breath-
ing "musical animal" constantly
dancing in reaction to the energy
and vibe between the performer
and the audience. "Blues From
The Inside Out" will teach you
that "dance" and give you an
opportunity to express yourself
through Blues.
SThe Museum of Florida His-
tory is located in the R.A.. Gray
Building at 500 South Bronough
Street in Tallahassee. There
is no charge for this program

ida Humanities Council and the

WEBSTER: Nurtured on Chica-
go's famed Maxwell street as a
kid, and migrating south to Talla-
hassee, Florida in 1985; Randall
"Big Daddy" Webster has im-
mersed his "300 Pounds of Heav-
enly Joy" into the great American
indigenous musical heritage of
Blues for over twenty (20) years.
Through performing Blues, and
teaching "Blues-In-The-Schools"
to elementary through university
level students, "Big Daddy" of-
ten recollects the stories behind

the music and incorporates them
into a mesmerizing acoustic per-
formances. With "Big Daddy's"
four octave tenor voice (he's often
called the "Pavarotti of Blues")
and capable guitar work, he of-
fers an engaging musical journey
through "Big Daddy's" original
Progressive Urban Blues from his
two (2) CDs "The 24th Hour" and
"Firebrewed," and many Blues
classics. Randall "Big Daddy"
Webster has performed with Sam
Lay, E.C. Scott, Coco Montoya,
Charles Atkins, Larry Garner,
Keb Mo, Clarence "Gatemouth"
Brown, Floyd.Miles, Eddie Kirk-
land, Bill Wharton, Canned Heat,
Bobby Rush, Johnny Rawls, John-
nie Marshall, Papa George, Pete
Best and many many more. "Big
Daddy" has recently begun pro-
duction on a new nationally syn-
dicated Blues radio show "Blues
From Smoky Holler;" often jam-
ming with some of the best Blues
artists in the country. Says Ran-
dall "Big Daddy" Webster, "This
is a participatory program bring-
ing the audience and performer
together in a musical bond within
Blues. Yes you'll get the history,
but more importantly we'll dig
deep into the heart and soul to
find that energy which defines the
words. There's dozens of ways
to sing "I woke up this morning,"
but only one truly expresses how
you feel THIS morning. Our pro-
gram x ill open a \\ indo\\ to .your
inner most feelings and give you
a positive way to express them
through Blues."
Master Blues harp accompanist
Michael "Doc" Palecki hails from
Miami, Florida and has played
Blues harp with Diamond Teeth
Mary, Lucky Peterson, Sarasota
Slim, "The Sauce Boss" Bill
Wharton,-Blues legend Charles

Atkins, St. Pete Twig, Pam Laws,
Blues Diva Cathy Cotton and Ran-

nard has been lead guitarist for Al
Green, James Brown and Little
Richard), Mount Temple Mis-
sionary Baptist Church of Liberty
City, and George "Chocolate"
Perry (bass player with Crosby
Stills & Nash). The bottom line
-- the man has chops! Says Pal-
ecki, "I play harmonica with feel-
ing and intensity and love. I'm
blessed to have played with some
of America's best musicians, and
each time they've passed on a lit-
tle magic that I try to incorporate

Big Bend caregivers to be pampered

from Area Agency on Aging
Much news is focused on el-
ders who suffer from diseases
such as Alzheimer's, dementia
or stroke but little attention is
paid to the caregivers for these'
loved ones. Caregivers are a
very special breed of people and
they need their own form of nur-
For this reason, caregivers in
the Big Bend area need to mark
their calendars for Thursday,
Sept. 15 when the Area Agency
on Aging for North Florida is
sponsoring the seventh annual
Beg Bend Caregivers Retreat
at the Ramada Inn Conference
Center on North Monroe in Tal-
lahassee. Caregivers in Leon,
Gadsden, .Liberty, Wakulla,
Franklin, Taylor, Madison and

Jefferson counties are urged to
sign up for this retreat.
Anyone who is caring for an
elderly loved one could use a
day for themselves. Use this op-
portunity to regroup, refresh and
be pampered. Learn new coping
and communicating techniques,
find out about new resources in
the community and share the fel-
lowship with others traveling the
same road.
The retreat starts at 8 a.m.
and lasts until 3 p.m. A wonder-
ful lunch is included and respite
care is available. Best of all,
there is no cost to attend! Space
is limited however, so please
call Lori at 386-2778 for more
information to register. This day
is for you, Big Bend caregivers
- please plan to attend.

Would you like fries with th

market place a double-edge

friend with whom I served in the
riAir Force in Germany some 45
years ago sent me an e-mail describing
his experience in buying a hamburger at
a fast-food restaurant.
The price of the food was $1.58 and
my friend handed the young woman two
dollars. Then he handed her 8 cents.
She looked at him in a perplexed man-
ner. My friend said. "You owe me fifty
cents in change." Still perplexed, she re-
sponded, "I'll have to ask my manager."
The manager came over; the young
woman becomes more agitated at this puz-
zling dilemma of change making. Finally,
my friend gets his two quarters and leaves.
The remainder of his e-mailwas a not-so-
humdrous account of the deterioration of
the American education system from the
1950s to now.
There is nothing wrong with working at
a fast-food restaurant. All of our now adult
children worked at fast-food restaurants.
The fast-food industry is a good place for
teenagers to get into the workforce and
learn the value of a job.
It is not OK to be in the fast-food busi-
ness or anywhere else in the market place
and not be able to add, subtract, multiply,
divide and make change in your head with-
out a calculator. It's called brain power.
Unfortunately in America, the scene
that my friend described is played out a
thousand times a day. The reason for that is
that education in America is not adequate
to prepare America's youth to compete in
global markets.

college graduates. Even more startling is
that this year China will produce 600,000
engineers; India 350,000 engineers, while
the U.S. produces 70,000 engineers.

the U.S. produces, and India produces

Liberty Co. volunteers complete United Way community

investment process, set to distribute funds to agencies

County volunteers completed
the United Way of the Big Bend
(UWBB) Liberty County com-
munity investment process
Aug. 2, and the funds will soon
be distributed to 12 human-ser-
vice agencies that provide ser-
vices in Liberty County.
A group of knowledgeable
Liberty volunteers spent seven
hours over the course of one
day at the Liberty County Emer-
gency Management Office to
ensure the $9,560 was allocated
in a fair and unbiased manner
so that these select agencies
can provide services for local
people in need throughout the
"I am most definitely proud
to have served with this strong
group of volunteers this year,"
said" Sue Sorrell, Liberty Al-
locations Team leader. "The
process went smooth, and .the
agency representatives were
very knowledgeable. This was
a; great help as we decided how
to best allocate the funds. This
allocation process and the funds
that will be distributed will
greatly impact the residents of
Liberty County by getting them
the services they need."
The Liberty County Commu-
nity Investment Team included
Ann Kincaid (Liberty County
Senior Citizens), Sue Sorrell
(Liberty County Transit/Liber-
ty County Senoir Citizens) and
Cindy Walker (Liberty County
Grants Department).
The team's agency review
process includes several com-
ponents that take time to com-
plete properly. Liberty agencies
or new applicants submit an ap-
plication to remain or become a
UWBB agency for Liberty. This
application is comprised of a de-
scription of their programs of-
fered to clients, numbers of cli-
ents served in that county, how
the lives of their local clients-
changes for the better because
of their programs, budget infor-
mation on the. agency, and a list
of their board of directors. The
team also makes on-site visits
to the agencies, studies their
budgets, and hears testimoni-
als from clients and/or agency,
volunteers. Upon completion,
they determine which agencies
and how much will be funded
for that particular year.
The team reviewed 12
agency applications, and all
12 agencies were funded. The
2005 Liberty agencies include
American Red Cross (Capital
Area Chapter), America's Sec-
ond Harvest of the Big Bend,
Area Management Coalition
for School Readiness, Big Bend
Cares, Big Bend Hospice, Big
Brothers Big Sisters of the Big
Bend, Boy Scouts of America
(Suwannee River, Area Coun-
cil), Elder Care Services, Fel-
tlowship 'ofChrisnap Athletes,

Thanks for being a LifeSaver

United Way of the Big Bend

Girl Scouts of the Apalachee
Bend, Kids Incorporated, and
Refuge House.
"It's inspiring to see these
volunteers in Liberty take time
out of their busy schedules to
go through this agency review
process," said Millie Smith,
UWBB Campaign manager for
Liberty. "This process is critical
to ensuring that these funds are
allocated properly and make
the most impact in this county.
We're very proud of the bot-
tom-line results these agencies
are producing and how they
help people in need throughout
Liberty County."
The $9,560 that Liberty
County volunteers were able to
allocate includes a direct grant




.?S -*v*

from UWBB, said Corinne
Reed, UWBB Community In-
vestment assistant. This direct
grant is part of the $150,000
that UWBB sets aside each
year to supplement neighbor-
ing-county campaigns. In addi-
tion to the $9,560 allocated by
the team, about another $3.77
million is allocated by UWBB
to agencies serving citizens all
across the Big Bend, including
Liberty County residents.
"We're grateful for the sup-
port we receive from Liberty,
County through the United Way
of the Big Bend campaign,"'
said Karen Hagan. American
Red Cross, Capital Area Chap-
ter executive director. "We re-
ceive a total of $122,800 from
[UWBB], which plays a large
part in, helping us serve tens
of thousands of people in need
throughout the Big Bend."

We welcome your church announcements and remind you to be sure to include the

a phone number or directions to the church to make it convenient for our readers.
There is no charge for church announcements, but we run each announcement
only once. If you would like to repeat the same announcement, we can do so but must
charge for the space as though it were an advertisement.
Often, churches want to publicize events several weeks prior to the activity. If you
can provide information about different aspects of the event, we can run a series of
announcements. Forexample, if a church is celebrating homecoming, the first story
might be about the history of the church, the second story might give some background
on the singers or special speakers to be featured, and the third article could focus on
the day's schedule of events. Each article should end with the basics time, date
and location.
Please try to keep the articles no longer than one typewritten page or two hand-
written pages in length.

To our family and friends, we would like to thank everyone for
joining us in celebrating our accomplishment of graduating. Words can
not explain our gratitude and love for everything that was done for us.
N We pra. that God-w ill continue, to bless and-.keep each of Nyo'.

Scallop season a good one on St. Joe Bay

Page______ *0 T AHNO AL

Scallops are more plentiful this
year in St. Joe Bay than any time
in the last several years but offi-
cers of the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) urge people to be mindful
of bag limits and other laws that
apply to recreational scalloping.
Several times over the last two-
three weeks officers have encoun-
tered fishermen with more than
the legal bag limit of scallops. In
one instance two Georgia couples
returned to Presnell's Landing on
the east side of the bay with a gal-
lon of cleaned scallops in their ice
Under FWC rules, the daily
bag limit is one pint of dressed
meat or two gallons of scallops in
the shell per person per day. With
five or more people on board a
vessel, the maximum limit is 10
gallons of scallops in the shell or
1/2 gallon of meat. The Georgia
foursome had twice their allow-
able bag limit.
"They claimed they didn't
know the bag limit but then ad-
mitted they been coming down
to scallop the last seven or eight
years," said Lt. Arie McMillion,
FWC law enforcement supervisor
-for Gulf County.
In another instance, McMil-
lion said he and Officer .Scott
Hoffman had a difficult time get-
ting a couple's boat stopped as
they were crossing the bay. After
a brief conversationthey escorted
the couple to a nearby landing.
There,they fourid the couple had
two quart bags of scallop meat
and an additional five-gallon bag
of uncleaned scallops. The scal-
lops were seized and the couple
charged with taking over the bag
limit, a misdemeanor that could
cost them up to $500 each and
possible jail time. McMillion said
the scallops were given to a Gulf
County charity.
"We want people .to enjoy
themselves and have fun but re-
member the bag limits and other
laws are in place for a reason," he

He said other things that those
who scallop need to remember
are to take the required number
of life jackets and always use a
diver's down flag. The diver's
down flag alerts other boaters that
people are in the water and to give
them wide passage. People who
are scalloping must stay within
300 feet of their flag. Saltwater
fishing licenses are also required
of all scallopers, unless exempt.
The use of alcohol. is also a big

Happy 72nd birthday to

Betty Henthorn on Aug. 17
Children often take for granted all
that mothers do and let the years go
by without a thought of all the loving
care she, gives, the praise and |
discipline, the wisdom and the skills
that she has taught... But later they
remember it and realize at last
the value that she brought to ,. .
every day and know they owe
their mother the greatest debt
in life that only love and
gratitude repay.
It isn't only your special
day that brings a thought of i ..4 F
you, because your inspiration is there in all we do. And ev-
ery day we're grateful for your very special part in giving us the
values that we cherish in our hearts.
We love you!

A public-private partnership that works... and works well!

During his first term in office,
Governor Jeb Bush announced
his emphasis on public-private
partnerships as a means of reduc-
ing costs, improving efficiency,
spurring innovation and stimu-
lating the economy. Some of the
partnerships that subsequently
evolved failed to live up to expec-
tations. But a notable exception
is the Florida Department of Cor-
rections' association with TYA, a
Tallahassee pharmaceutical firm
with a strong Blountstown con-
In 1996 the DOC interpreted
state, statutes as allowing phar-
maceutical services like other
healthcare services to be ex-
empt from state contract bidding
requirements. As a result, the De-
partment began looking at how
it could develop a working rela-
tionship with a private pharma-
ceutical firm that could tailor its
operations to meet specific DOC
needs not beiig met by other sup-

pliers in the marketplace.
Today, the DOC Office of
Health Services reports that the
business arrangement the agency
established with the private firm,
Terry Yon & Associates (TYA),
has saved Florida taxpayers ap-
proximately $13 million in, the
cost of pharmaceutical services
between 1998 and 2005. In an en-
vironment characterized by stag-
gering increases in the costs of
prescription drugs, the DOC has
seen its .prescription costs drop
to an average increase of only 3
percent a year over the past two
years. During the first three years
of this decade, the DOC's drug
costs averaged increasing just
under 10 percent annually sig-
nificantly below the national av-
TYA was founded by
Blountstown native Terry Yon,
who owns and operates the busi-
ness. Terry is the son of Ter-

Blountstown. Steve Whitfield of
Blountstown, formerly pharmacy
manager for the state Department
of Corrections, is TYA's director
of operations and quality.
After the Florida DOC first
discussed its needs with. TYA in
1996, the fledgling entrepreneur-
ial firm undertook 18 months of
intensive research into provid-
ing unit-dosed liquid psychotro-
pic medications in plastic cups.
Unit-dosing was a DOC priority
because of the frequent abuses
experienced when inmates had
access to larger doses of medica-
tion in solid tablet form.
On Jan. 1, 1998, the DOC
signed a contract w\ ith T YA under
which the firm began providing
unit-dosed liquid psychotropic
medications. TYA was then and
still is the only FDA-licensed
company in existence that pro-
vides all known liquid psycho-
tropic medications in unit doses..
at any requested strength. Subse-
quently, the DOC asked TYA to.
develop large unit dose packag-.
ing foil bags containing single
doses greater than one ounce.
Again TYA invested its time
and money in the developmen-
tal work necessary to fulfill the
DOC's request and today TYA-
provides individual doses of up
to three ounces. Individual doses
that large are not available from
any other pharmaceutical sup-
plier in the country.
Then in late 2001 the DOC
approached TYA about expand-
ing the contract to encompass.
all medications both liquid and
solid in unit doses. TYA, in
turn, developed unit dose strips
and a "bingo card" arrangement
for packaging oral solid medica-
tions. In view of its ongoing rela-
tionship with the DOC. the firm
expanded to a new physical plant.
added staff positions and secured
the assistance of consultants to
make sure its operations were in
compliance with established stan-
dards. Further. it made a major
investment in repackaging ma-
chines, computer hardware and
soft' are, bar-coding equipment
and other facilities necessary to
meet the. Department's current
and future needs. The DOC's
business arrangement with TYA,
along with internal changes it
-implemented in disseminating
medications to inmates through-
out the state, yielded significant
improvements in patient service,
operational efficiency arid ex-
pense savings. Understandably,
DOC officials felt this was a
"w in-w in" situation.
The DOC estimated that the
new packaging system enabled
it to save $1.6 million annually
in salaries and benefits. The ar-
rangement with TYA allowed the
DOC to streamline its delivery
of medications to inmates and to
close pharmacies in two locations.
These changes and a new phar-
mac. computer system enabled
the DOC to save or reduce inven-
tories by approximately $2 mil-

the partnership, TYA has faced
challenges in turning a profit.
The burgeoning Tallahassee
Pharmaceutical firm has incurred
substantial R&D costs. And since
it purchases and. resells, medica-
tions to the DOC at wholesale cost
minus a discount, it must rely on
"'card fees" and prompt-payment
discounts from suppliers to cover
its operating expenses and gen-
erate a modest profit. Card fees
represent TYA's cost of handling.
packaging and shipping prescrip-
tions ordered by the DOC. TYA
Seen absorbs the cost of tablets
broken during the packaging pro-
cess, which on an annual basis
-results in significant cost avoid-
ance for the DOC.
The DOC-TYA contract con-
tains other provisions that also
benefit the taxpayers of Florida.
From the inception of the part-
nership. TYA has had a "return
policy" that makes the firm the
most customer-friendly in the
pharmaceutical industry. During
the year 2003 the DOC returned
unused medications to TYA that
bore a $1.7 million price tag -
and the Department received full
credit for all returns. In 2004 the
DOC received credit for over $1
million for returned medications.
TYA's return policy combined:
with its ability to deliver medi-
cations within 24 hours from re-
ceipt of an order has allowed
the DOC to reduce the. inventory
of drugs stocked in its dispensing
locations. Thus the Department is
enjoying the benefits of the "just-
in-time" supply process that has
been adopted by successful busi-
nesses around the world.
Another, more recent, request
from the DOC was for TYA to
begin splitting very expensive
brand-name pills for example,
Crestor, Lipitor and Zoloff in
order to achieve additional cost
savings for the Department..,
Again, TYA developed the ca-
pability to meet the request. The
result will be an additional DOC
savings this year of more than $1
million for the six medications
the firm presently is "splitting"
for the agency. TYA has peti-
tioned the Department for formu-
lary authority so it can reduce the

-lion per year. -While theDOC has number of essentially identical.
-.eaied gida6t-he~a s B drugs which will yield'eVmena

further savings.
In view of such significant
and tangible benefits from an ar-
rangement thathas addressed the
needs of Florida's Department of
Corrections and has saved tax;
payers millions of dollars a N ear:
it is easy to understand why DOG
Officials feel good about this par-.
ticular public-private partner
ship., With.the assistance of sevr
eral former DOC pharmacists
now employed by TYA, the firm,-
has developed a "seamless" supL
ply system to meet the agency's
needs. By any measure, this part-
nership is successful. In short ..
it works!
TYA supplies pharmaceuticals,;
for three of the DOC's four re-
gions in Florida. In DOC Region
4 the Dade-Broward county
area, which is not served b. TYA
drug costs run about 25 percent
higher than the regions served by
TYA. DOC records indicate that
the company supplying phar-
maceuticals for Region 4 often
fails to meet the 24-hour delivery
timetable. Also. it's significant to
note that TYA's DOC prices are
substantially lower than lMed-
icaid prescription prices in the
nation's four largest states.
Today, TYA has about 20 cus-
tomers. both inside and outside
Florida. Its workforce of more
than 25 people makes it a sig-
nificant area employer. If the firm
secures several prospective con-
tracts it presently is pursuing, it
would face an immediate need to
expand both its workforce and its
physical facilities.
In addition to supplying the
Florida DOC, the firm also lists
among its customers the Texas
Department of Criminal Justice,
the Louisiana State Penitentiary
at Angola, and the North Caro-
lina Department of Corrections.
TYA's Florida customers include
the Orange County Jail and in-

The DOC-TYA partnership

success story stands out like a

Thomas Jefferson once said,
"Never put off till tomorrow what
you can do today." However,
many government leaders seem to
go against these words of wisdom
when dealing with the troubling
financial problems of our fed-
eral government. While the lat-
est Congressional Budget Office
(CBO) report states that the fed-
dral deficit this year is still huge-
1331 billion-it is not as bad as
originally projected-$412 billion.-
4t the same time, the nonpartisan
budget agency said that the fiscal
outlook remains grim for years to
qome. Many are touting this brief
fiscal reprieve as refreshing and
Oven outstanding news.
SAs a man who worries as much
out our future as I do about our
t resent, I'm appalled that these
Srojections are being lauded as
Success. The CBO report released
qn Monday of this week.predicts
that the deficit will fall by $81 bil-
lion to $331 billion in the current
fical year. This is down from
last year's record high deficit of
$412 billion. By comparison, this
year's deficit is a slight improve-
ment, but the long term forecast
shows no substantial progress
in our fiscal situation. In 2006,
the CBO projects that thedeficit
\\ill be $314 billion and \\i1l re-
- main above $300 billion a year
through 2010. It seems that the
decrease in this year's deficit is
not a marked indication of long
Term improvements. The fact is'
That until we fundamentally re-
fnrm the.federal budgeting pro-
S4ess, there is no end in sight to the-
dismal deficits we're seeing now.
Simply put, our country' fiscal
policy is broken.
SAccording to the CBO report,
the government will accumulate
enough revenues to pay for ap-
proximately 75 percent of gov-
ernment expenses in fiscal year
2005. The remaining 25 percent,
which amounts to about $507 bil-
lion, will be financed by borrow-
ing, with the majority of the funds
coming from foreign sources-like
China and Japan-and the -Social
Security Trust Fund. In fiscal
years 2003 and 2004, our govern-

ment was able
to cover only .
70.percent of
expenses. All
in all, it seems
that those ap-
plauding our :
fiscal situa-
tion are only
celebrating a
measly five
As we learn
Sof the bleak, long term forecast of
our nation's fiscal house, I think:
most Americans would be ap-
palled to learn of the ridiculously
lenient and careless budget guide-
lines in Congress, which primar-
ily contribute to our growing
financial problems. Most Ameri-
cans do not realize how deeply
their tax dollars are being mis-
managed. As a leader of the Blue
Dog Coalition, I have dedicated
much of my efforts in Congress
to addressing the irresponsible
policies of our budget process.
The Blue Dogs are comprised of
centrist Democrats in the House
of Representatives committed to
developing reasonable and real-
istic solutions to our nation's fis-
cal problems. This year, we-de-:
veloped a 12-step budget reform
plan to restore fiscal sanity and
get America out of the deficit hole
and back on the road to financial
The Blue Dog plan not ;only
requires Congress to balance the
budget, but also proposes that any
new spending or:tax cut must be
paid for by making tough choices
and cuts in other places. Known
as "PAYGO;" this directive
helped stimulate a budget surplus
in the 1990s and would prohibit
Congress from buying on credit
by requiring the government to
have the necessary funds for all
new spending. The Blue Dogs'
budget reforms will also keep
taxpayers informed about how
their dollars are being spent by
demanding that federal agencies
undergo thorough audits to an-
swer for what they spend and re-
quiring honest cost estimates for

onto the backs
of the Ameri-
can people, arid
it is time for use
to stand up and
demand stricter budgetary guide-
lines to control our bad habit of
deficit spending. We must put a
stop to the outrageous spending
practices of the current Adininis-
tration and enact budget reforms
in Congress before the problem
becomes worse. The Blue Dogs
have made the first step b\ det el-
oping budgetary guidelines that
will rein in irresponsible govern-
ment spending. Unfortunately,
few members in Congress be-
sides the Blue Dogs are backing
these reforms.

always popular amongst politi-
cians. Howeveer, I think it should
be e\en more unpopular to saddle
our children and grandchildren
with this financial burden. I hope
the recent CBO report :\ill not
be used as evidence to further
procrastinate on implementing

budgetary reforms, but instead
prompt our government leaders
to tackle our financial problems
today so we can all enjoy eco-
nomic health tomorrow.

going to be tougher to win,
I'm afraid."
This year's team includes
five newcomers who recently
moved to Blountstown.
*Greg Meeks and Clark Pur-
vis, both formerly of Quincy,
are now living in Blountstown
and will be playing for the
Tigers. Last year, both played
against BHS while on the Rob-
ert F. Munroe team. Both are
seniors. The t\%o moved to the
area last spring and were able
to take partin team's summer
weightlifting program:
*Two brothers. Core\ Guil-
ford and Michael Guilford,
started their first term at
Blountstown High School last
week after relocating to the
area. Both have previously
played in Wakulla County
and in Alabama, Johns said,
adding that Chase. who is a
sophomore. "is a pretty dam
good quarterback." The coach
is also expecting a lot from
his brother, Michael, who is
a junior.
*Rounding out the newcom-
ers' list is Victor Carranza,.who
moved here from Apalaehicola
to begin his senior year. "He's
a place kicker from Apala-
hicola and has played some
defense," Johns said.
"We've got five new expe-
rienced players, along with a
lot of good football players
coming back from last year,"
Johns says.
Although things are looking
great for the Tigers, Johns is

cautious. "We're going to do
our best not to start the season
underestimating anybody. I
think we did that last year,
when we lost the Kickoff Clas-
sic to Chipley."
He said some of last year's
problems had to do with at-
titude. "I think we thought
we were better than we re-
ally were." Already, this year
seems different, he says. "Our
kids seem to be more down to
earth and more focused. The
players have matured and put
their differences aside. I've
been really pleased. If we can
continue to do that. I think
we've got. a shot to be really

in a Classic as opposed to a
District game," Johns says.
"We're not going to take any
chance in kids getting hurt or
getting in disagreements on the
field. Our kids have got a lot
to lose this year."
He added that they are ex-
pecting a challenge on the field
this week because, "You know:
when you play Bristol they're
going to play hard and they're
going to be well-coached."

Bulldogs preparing

for a tough season
by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
The Liberty County Bulldogs will open the 2005 football
season with a game against cross-river rival Blountstown Aug.
19 at Blountstown. Unlike recent history, this game doesn't
haven't the same impact for both teams in terms of district
standings or the playoffs.
Officially, this game doesn't even count in the standings since
it is a classified as a preseason contest. After making it all the
way to the Class A finals last year, the Tigers have been moved
up to Class 2A. Liberty County remains in Class 1 A, but the
Bulldogs' district now stretches all the way over to Jay. That
being said, it is still Blountstown versus Liberty County.
The Bulldogs enter the game with a relatively inexperienced
team. LCHS has five:seniors returning and their ranks are not as
big as in recent years. Liberty's Head Coach Randy Roland says
the Bulldogs will use the preseason game to give a lot of kids a
chance to play, and get a look at some of the newer players as
they face real pressure for the first time.
"We've got a tough district this year, and we are probably
picked somewhere near the bottom," Roland said. "Blountstown
will probably be the toughest team we face all year, and since
.it is preseason, it gives us a great chance to toss some kids into
the fire and see how they stand up."
Roland said fans can look for pretty much the same old power
football from the Bulldogs.
"We will play Liberty County football," he said. "Right now
we just need to find out which kids are ready to step up and
prpve'they aireread\y'be'a part of what we do.' I '

Children make comfort kits for the Red Cross
On June 29, a swim party and service project was held at the home of Ricky and Shelly Staf-
ford in Bristol. Children from the Hosford, Bristol and Blountstown Primary of The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints prepared disaster service comfort kits for the American Red
Cross. This service project helped the children understand about caring and serving others.
The primary kids were able to contribute and help provide relief for families who may lose their
home in a house fire or suffer damages from a hurricane.

by Sandy Miller Hays,
Agricultural Research Service
You're probably not
aware of this, but the Agri- 9-
cultural Research Service
most likely has some very
important partners right in
your home state.
Those "partners" are
the land-grant universities
and colleges established by Scie
Congress with the Justin vers
Smith Morrill Act of 1862 have
and the historically black Salm
land-grant colleges and amo
universities authorized by bact
Congress in 1890. Each of
these entities-ARS on the fed-
eral side, the land-grant schools
on the state side-plays a vital
role in research successes.
ARS is the in-house research
agency of USDA, and its re-
search activities typically have
a broad focus or national scope,
tackling problems with a variety
of approaches. ARS is funded
by congressional appropriations
that can support multi-year,
long-term projects not suited to
annual or short-term grants.
The land-grant schools focus
more on solving important local
and regional problems. These
colleges and universities have a
breadth of expertise far beyond
agricultural sciences that provides
a tremendous pool of resources.
By. now:,you may be think-
ing, "Well; all this cooperation is
wonderful, but....." It's only hu-
man nature to wonder, "What's
in it for us?" Here are some
notable achievements that have
come out of ARS' collaboration
with your state schools:
ARS microbiologists at Ames,
Io\ a. worked with a scientist at
Iow a State University to invent a
de\ ice that can detect specks of
fecal contamination, too small to
be detected by the human eye,
on beef carcasses. This means
meat packers won't have to trim
away (and waste) meat because
it might be contaminated; with
this device, the.packer will know
exactly when to take action. This
means lower production costs
(which can translate to lower
costs for consumers), as well as
reduced risk of foodborne ill-
The device uses a.splash of
light to detect the contamina-
tion. The technical term for this
is "fluorescent spectroscopy."
And it's no pie-in-the-sky idea,
either; a company called eMerge
Interactive, based in Sebastian,
FL, has licensed the device and
is marketing it.
The ARS scientists leveraged
their knowledge of animal dis-
ease and food safety with the
ISU scientist's expertise in light
and physics. What started off
as casual conversations about
whether light-based technology
could be useful in food safety
has led to a product that can
make meat safer. for us all.
These types of collaborations

ity of Maryland-Eastern Shore

can have enormous scientific
impact. For example, five ARS
scientists teamed up with three
Cornell University scientists in
1965 to determine the molecular
structure of RNA. This feat won
the team's leader, biochemist
Robert W. Holley, a share of the
1968 Nobel Prize for medicine
or physiology. (Incidentally,
Holley was a great example of
federal/university collaboration;
he worked for both ARS and
More recently, ARS scien-
tists at the University of Mary-
land-Eastern Shore (UMES) in
Princess Anne, MD., are col-
laborating with that university's
scientists on development of
better tools to predict the growth
and survival of. two very nasty
food pathogens-Salmonella
and Camp)lobacter-in poultry.
About 10 percent of the esti-
mated 1.4 million cases of Sal-
monella-caused food poisoning
that strike Americans each year
come from poultry.
One of the researchers' re-
cent findings is that Salmonella
populations grow much more
slowly than was previously be-
lieved when other populations
of bacteria are present. The ARS
and university scientists have
found a way to make Salmonella
easier to identify among the liv-
ing populations of mixed bacte-
ria on poultry.
What's more, ARS in 1995
created a "Center of Excellence"
at UMES to help create a food
science program at the school.
When ARS first arrived at UMES
10 years ago, no one.on campus
was doing food science or food
safety research. Since then, there
have been successful scientific
collaborations between ARS sci-
entists and UMES faculty mem-
bers, and UMES undergraduate
and graduate students have had
a chance to learn by working in
the ARS lab.
Also, ARS helped UMES get
$17 million to build a state-of-
the-art food science and technol-
ogy laboratory facility, and the
school now has its first agricul-
tural Ph.D. program.
I'd call that a partnership that's
paying off for everybody: from
the students and the school to us
consumers who rely on research
to help keep our food safe!'

by Florida Power & LIght Co.
and Progress Energy Florida,
-Inc. are excessive and unjusti-
fied. The proposed rate :hikes
would affect some 70 percent
of Florida's electric consumers.
Before filing the motion with
the PSC, the Attorney .Gen-
eral was asked to intervene by
AARP and the Florida Retail
Federation on behalf of their
combined 2.7 million members
in Florida.
"We are pleased to-have the
opportunity to help make the
case for the people against these
unwarranted higher rates." said
SCrist. "Florida businesses have
a right to make a profit under
our free market system, and
consumers have the right to
receive a. fair price under that
same:system. When that bal-
ance tilts against consumers,
.we will not stand by quietly\
- we will act."
The companies' rate hike re-
quests follow a recent PSC de-
cision allowing them to charge
customers to recover their re-
pair costs associated with last
year shiunumcane season.

DOH recognizes August as National Immunization Awareness Month

gust is National Immunization
Awareness Month and Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
officials stress the importance
of getting routine immuniza-
tions. With flu season just
around the corner, it is impera-
tive that citizens follow the
recommended immunization
"Vaccines are safe and offer
effective protection from in-
fectious diseases," said DOH
Secretary John O. Agwunobi,
M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H. "By
staying up-to-date on the rec-
ommended vaccinations, indi-
viduals can protect themselves,
their families, and their com-
munities from serious or even
life-threatening diseases."
Agwunobi encourages Flo-
ridians to contact their local
county health department or
physician to schedule an ap-
pointment for vaccinations and
to make sure their immuniza-
tions are up-to-date.
Currently, the DOH vacci-
nation schedules as follows:
*Diphtheria, tetanus and
pertussis vaccine (DTaP): Five
doses by age 5 (One dose at 2,
4, 6 and 12-18 months of age
and one dose at 4-5 years of
age for a total of 5 doses).
*Polio vaccine: Four doses
by age 5 (One dose at 2, 4, 6-
18 months of age and one dose
at 4-5 years of age for a total of
four doses).;
*Measles, mumps and rubel-
la vaccine (MMR): Two doses
by age 5 (One dose at 12-15
months of age and one dose at
4-5 years of age for a total of
2 doses).
*Hepatitis B vaccine: Three
doses by 12 months of age.
*Pneumococcal conjugate
vaccine: Four doses by 12.
months of age (One dose at 2,
4, 6 and 12 months of age for a
total of 4 doses).
-Varicella (chickenpox) vac-
cine: One dose at or after 12
months of age.
*Haemophilus Influenzae
Type b (Hib): Two or three
doses (depending on the type
of vaccine used) by 6 months
of age.
*Influenzavaccine: One dose

Pine bark beetles attack damaged pines

The recenthurricanescaused
substantial damage to the ar-
ea's pine trees. The damage
ranged from broken branches
to trees being snapped in half.
Unfortunately, the surviving
pine trees may be at further
risk from pine bark beetles.
Many gardeners have heard
of the dreaded southern pine
bark beetle and associate their
attacks to timber production
stands. There are actually
five different beetle species
in Florida that are commonly,
called pine bark beetles and
they are capable of attacking
valued landscape pines.
The primary role of pine
bark beetles in nature is to
selectively remove dying or
damaged pines. Beetle infes-
tations often begin on severe-
ly stressed or injured trees.
Odors emitted by trees struck

storms, mechanically injured
or stressed by heavy pruning
attract bark beetles from other
places. Pines under any type
of stress are susceptible to at-
tack by bark beetles.
Most bark beetle infested
pines are discovered when the
homeowner notices that the
needles have changed from
the normal dark green color
to a light green, yellow or red
color. Many people also notice
sawdust-like, boring dust at

the base of the tree. On closer
examination of the trunk, you
will see holes where the bee-
tles have chewed through the
bark. Normally, the pine tree
responds to this invasion by
flooding the attack site with
sap with results in popcorn-
like blobs of resin called pitch
tubes. This defensive reaction
can sometimes "pitch-out"
the attacking beetles. While
pitch tubes on the bark are one
of the best ways to identify a
bark beetle attack, pitch tubes
may not form on extremely
stressed trees.
The most severe and ulti-
mately fatal injury is caused
by the larvae or the immature
form of the beetle. Once bark
beetles colonize and destroy
the tree's inner layers, the tree

is doomed. If you find evidence
of bark beetles and all the pine
needles turn brown at the same
time, you are most likely go-
ing to lose the tree. The tree
should be removed immedi-
ately and the wood taken from
the property. If left standing,
the infested tree becomes a
breeding area for more beetles
that could attack nearby trees.
The best way to protect
your pine trees is to keep them
healthy. Pines in a landscape
should be maintained at a low
enough density so that the tops
of the trees do not touch.
Also be sure to maintain
adequate mulch under the
tree. Putting a mulch bed un-
der a tree prevents mechani-
cal injury to the trunk by the
lawnmower or string trimmer.
Mulch should be two to four
inches deep and extend out
at least as far as the branch
spread. Do not pile mulch up
against the tree trunk.
What about insecticides?
Insecticides do have a place in
bark beetle management, but
it is rather limited. Several in-
secticides traditionally used to
control these pests, like Durs-
ban and Lindane, have been
removed from the market. A
new product called OnyxTM
became available in late 2003.
OnyxTM works best when
applied preventively, before
adult beetles have attacked
the tree. For homeowners, this
product may be worth a try
on valued ornamental pines
in close proximity to trees
that are actively infested with
bark beetles. It is by no means
a cure all solution and legally
must be applied by a licensed
pesticide applicator.
Tip of the Week Topping a
tree creates a dangerous tree.
Topping is cutting the trunk and
branches to random lengths.
This improper pruning prac-
tice is not recommended and
can increase the likelihood of
rot and decay. Always prune a
branch back to a living branch
