WX Then they heard the rum-
V ble of thunder in the dis-
tance, Jim Deason and his father.
Terrn. began gathering up their
tools in hopes of getting a\way
before the rain began.
But it %wasn't the rain they

needed to be worried about.

| The men were working on
equipment at their farm near Tor-
reya Park Road. north of Bristol around
4:15 p.m. Saturday. When a bolt of
lightning hit nearby, they scrambled to put
things away so they could leave.
SThen a second bolt hit. They dropped
their tools and headed to their truck.
A moment later, there was a third light-
ning stnke. Jim. who \~as standing in the
opening between an eight-foot-high fence
and a gate, turned to tell his father not to
touch the gate when without warning, he
was slammed to the ground.
"He was unconscious for about a half
minute," his father said. "The hair on
his arms was singed. The impact left
his body numb. He had no feeling in his
"It was not a direct hit," said Deason.
"I think some of the charge must have,
been attracted to the fence or gate and
Jim got some of the impact."
The elder Deason, who was stand-
ing on a wooden loading. dock in front
of a storage building, was not hurt. He
believes that had his son not been wear-
ing rubber-soled work boots, his injuries
would have been more serious.
But at that moment, they didn't know
how serious\ the 30-year-old father of
two was hurt.
'When I came to, it \ as reallyhard to

breathe." recalls Jim. "I couldn't move.
I had to really concentrate on breathing
and taking a breath."
When the feeling returned to one of
his legs and his right arm, "I was able
to drag myself to the back of the truck,"
Jim said.
Deason helped his injured son into the
bed of his truck and drove more than a
mileputtto Hwy. 271 (Torreya Park Road)
after calling 911 and family members
from acell phone. As they traveled dowfi
the dirt road to get help, the rain began
falling hard.

Jackie Barber and his wife, Kathyl'
who is a nurse, live on the property ad-
joining the Deasons' land and met them
at the road. Kath\ did a quick exam and
relayed the details of his condition when
the ambulance crew arrived;
"I \was in the ambulance before I

started getting the feeling back in my right
foot." Jim said. Midway to the hospital.
the numbness began to fade from the rest
of his body. "To go from being in that
kind of condition to getting all my feeling
back within 30 minutes "as kind of an
amazing thing," he said.
He \was taken by Liberry Ambulance
to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. where
he underwent a number of tests which
revealed no lasting damage. The worst
of it, he said, was the injury to his right
elbow w hen he hit the ground. along with
some bruises and abrasions.
"There wasn't really an entry or an exit
wound." he said. About the only lasting
mark was the singed hair on his arms.
"I'm just real sore...it's like I pulled
every muscle in my body," said Jim, who
is taking off a few da s from his job with
the state to recuperate. "It's like ha\ ing
a cramp all over your entire body...and
it stayed that way for awhile," he said of
the pain.
"I'm glad someone \ a, here w ith me."
he said, and added, "I'm just grateful to
be here and be alive.'
Deason's father has since returned to
the property and said he found four pine
trees within a half-acre radius that had
been-hit by lightning, all close to the
fence. He said the w weather caught them
by surprise, noting, "The lightning was
striking long before the rain ever came.
It. was right on top of us before we even
realized it."
Jim and his wife, Jinger, live in Bristol
with their tmo daughters Madison,
two. and fi'e-\ear-old Karley. Jim said
Karley "dropped everything and said a.
prayer." w hen she learned he had been

Yon charged with

battery after man

hit at birthday party
A man who previously served time in prison af-
ter being convicted on battery charges is in trouble
again after a guest at a birthday party wound up
with a bruised and battered face.
Craig Yon, 40, was arrested Aug. 18 after an
officer noticed extensive bruising on Grady Allen
Mears' head and face and asked what had happened.
Mears said that on the evening of Aug. 5, he had
attended a birthday party at a friend's barn on B.E.
Barfield Road.
Also in attendance was Robert Craig Yon, who
suddenly announced in front of Mears that he was
going to strike another man there, Mears said.
Mears responded to the threat by telling Yon he was
not going to hit the other man. Yon then replied that
he was going to hit Mears and did so, striking him
as he was sitting in a chair.
The punch to the face caused bruises that were
stilt visible a.week and a half later, according to.
Deputy William Dalton's report. Mears told the
deputy the injury had left him with headaches and
he was unable to work for five days.
Mears said he did not initially report the incident
because he felt Yon would retaliate, but family
members had urged him to contact the sheriff's
department about the attack.
Yon, who is currently on probation, was arrested
on a battery charge as well as a probation violation.
He is being held without bond in the county jail.

On Aug. 6, Simmons who was in a truck with
his father, Michael Simmons Sr. caught up with

Altha driver charged

with DUI Thurs. night
An Altha man was charged w ith driving under
the influence after a Calhoun County Sheriff's
Deputy'observed him traveling 20 miles under
the speed l imit and crossing the center of the road
as oncoming traffic approached, shortly before
8 p.m. Aug. 18. according to a report from the
sheriff's office.
Deputy William Dalton was eastbound on State
Road 20 when he noticed a black pick-up, also
eastbound. driving erratically.
The truck, driven by Michael Richard Daly,
54, had a tag that was registered to a red Toyota
The deputy saw the truck go out of the lane
a second time. After that, the driver continued
to.weave across his lane for a mile. The driver
ignored the deputy's emergency lights and contin-
ued on for about a half mile after Dilton activated
his siren. Daly stopped approximately one mile
west of Clarksville.
%When the deputy approached Dal. he noticed
the odor of alcohol. Daly, who admitted he'd had
approximately six beers, performed poorly during
a roadside sobriety test and was unable to main-
tain his balance. The deputy noted in his report
when Daly got out of the truck he had to hold on
to the truck bed to keep from falling down.
Daly acknowledged that he had an improper
tag on the truck, but stated he put it on so that he-
could drive to Panama City. He also admitted
to the deputy that his driver's license had been
suspended and said he did not have any insurance
on the truck.
He w\as taken to the court jail in Blountstown.
In addition to DUI. he was charged \ ith driving
while license suspended or revoked and attaching
tag not assigned.
He was released from custody the next day on
a $7,000 surety bond.

one had been driving a vehicle in circles across
the field leaving skid marks, according to BHS
Coach Bobby Johns. The driver also rode around
the new concession stand, spraying it with mud.
The damages to the field were estimated at ap-
proximately $3.500. said Lt. Rodney Smith.
"It'll never be right again this year," the coach
said about the condition of the field. "There's not
time for it to grow back. We spent hundreds and
hundreds of hours on the field to get it in that shape."
In fact, the team has a new practice field they use
to preserve the condition of the football field for
game nights.
"Anybody who would do something like that
is as low class as it comes," Johns said before the
A $100 reward was offered for information
about the case and Lt. Adam Terry of the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department received a call about
a suspect Monday.
Smith and Terry met with McClendon at a home
in Blountstown. The teenager admitted that he
borrow ed a Jeep Cherokee that night and took two
juvenile passengers to the store to get a soft drink.
He admitted that he then went to the,high school and
spun the Jeep in circles. lea\ ing ruts in the parking
lot and on the playing field. The Jeep's owner said
she had no knowledge of what had happened after

' Man charged with making false

report against estranged wife

An officer's attention to detail
resulted in the arrest of an Altha
man who attempted to file charg-
es against his estranged wife and
reported that she had hit him.
Lt. Adam Terry of the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department
was called to the Altha home of
Melissa Rostas, 22, after it was
alleged that she was not taking
care of her child.
When Terry interviewed Ros-

tas at her home, he noted that
she was wearing a yellow Adi-
das shirt, blue Adidas shorts and
white tube socks with no shoes.
He was called back to the
scene 45 minutes later, this time
in response to a report of a physi-
cal disturbance at the Smith Street
When Terry arrived, he found

Melissa Rostas' home. Rostas
got out of the passenger's seat to
talk to Terry and told him he had
gone to speak with his estranged
wife. Rostas also pointed out
that he had not gone in the yard
because he had previously been
issued a trespass warning by an-
other deputy.
He said he talked to his wife
in the road and she slapped him
on the left side of his face. Terry
found no evidence of injury or
redness. Rostas' mother was also
in the car, but Rostas said she did
not witness the slap because he
had asked her to wait down the
When Terry approached the
home he talked to a woman who
was leaving. She told him some-
one from Children and Family
Services had left just ten minutes
earlier and they had not seen Tim-
othy Rostas. When Terry went
inside to talk to Rostas' wife, she
said she had not seen him that
day. Terry looked at her hands
and found nothing to indicate that
she had hit anything!
Noting that she was wearing
the same clothes she had on when
he talked to her 45 minutes ear-
lier, Terry went outside to speak
with Rostas again. When asked to
describe what his wife was wear-
ing when the alleged incident
occurred, Rostas said she had on
a maroon Alabama shirt with an
elephant design, blue jeans with a
gray strip and tennis shoes.
At that point, Terry arrested
Rostas for filing a false report. He
was released from the county jail
the next day on $1,000 bond.

limits of family loyalty and the impor-
tance of taking responsibility.
The Chipola production will run Nov.

The changing face of America

Does anyone here speak Eng-
lish? For now, the answer is
yes, but in the future, I'm not
so sure.
Demographic predictions are
that by 2050 half of the people
living in America will be black,
Hispanic or Asian. It is not 1776
anymore. The colonies are gone.
America has a new face that is
growing darker every day. The
days of the white, Anglo-Saxon
male are numbered.
Data from the U.S. Census
Bureau indicates that the major-
ity of residents in Texas, Cali-
fornia. Ne\v Mexico, Hawaii and
Washington, D.C. are something
other than non-Hispanic whites.
Translated, that means that more
than half of the people living in
these states or cities are black,
Hispanic or Asian.
Minorities are now 40%, or
more, of the population of Mary-
land, Mississippi, Georgia, New
York and Arizona, and these
states will soon join the ranks in
which 50% or more of a state's
population is black, Hispanic or
Census data indicates that
Florida is in the 35-50% category
now, so Florida can't be far from
the 50% black, Hispanic or Asian
category. During my years of
service with the U.S. Air Force,
I lived in the Miami, Florida
area in the 1960s, 1,970s and
1980s. The Miami-Dade County
area is another Latin American
There are two.States of Flor-
ida. The Panhandle region and
South Florida; two regions in
which the twain shalLnever meet.
Country folk up here where I live
(Okaloosa County) don't cotton
to all those foreigners down there
in Dade County.
What does this changing face
of America mean to all of us who

Jerry Cox is a retired military officer
and writer with an extensive back-
ground in domestic and foreign policy
issues. He lives in Shalimar, Fla.

those of us vho are long in the
tooth, but it means a lot to our
children and grandchildren.
A few months ago, I was
listening to a discussion of the
growing minorities in America
and what that portends for state
and federal legislation.
The participants in this discus-
sion were people with expertise
in immigration, legislation, and-.
social programs. Some of the,':
speakers were from minority
groups. One lady with a doctorate
bluntly put the issue into focus.
She said that when minorities
become the majority and write
the laws, the focus of those laws
would not be on white people.
The focus of those laws will be
to correct the social injustice that
minorities have endured over
the centuries. Well, no surprises
Hispanics control the govern-
ment in Miami-Dade Metro. The
likelihood of "Joe Smith" being
elected mayor of Miami is slim
to none. Los Angles now has a
Hispanic mayor. I'll bet the rent
money that California will soon
have a Hispanic governor. Same
for Florida.
My undergraduate degree is
in history. A history degree is not
worth much for making money,
but it is a good degree for a writ-
er. The value of a history degree
is that you have some idea of how
we all got to where we are today.
Unfortunately, most people's
understanding of history comes
from television's romanticized
pogrtayas 9lis torical events.

Countries change over time.
This is not the America of the
colonial days. It is not 1776.
This is not the America of the
westward expansion. This is not
the America of WWII when the
Germans and Japanese threat-
ened the country. This is not the
America of the Cold War Era
when the former Soviet Union
threatened the country.
I think that many Americans
are caught in a"1776 time warp."
Many, particularly politicians,
spend a lot of time quoting the
Constitution. I get the impres-
sion that they want to return to
the simpler days of the colonial
era. We can't.
Is the Constitution valid to-
day? Yes. Whether it be the mi-
nority becoming the majority or
defeating the terrorists, the test
for America's national leader-
ship is whether they can adapt
Constitutional fundamentals to
moder-day problems.
America is going to change.
Will these,changes be handledin
the bestinterest of the American
people as a whole? Time will

Bush woke up this morning, saw his shadow and now -- six
more weeks of vacation. JAY LENO

In Crawford, Texas, President Bush met with his defense
team and his foreign policy team. They briefed Bush on the
state of global affairs and he showed them how to pop a
wheelie on a mountain bike. -CONAN O'BRIEN

President Bush is on week three of his marathon five-week
vacation. In fact, he has been gone on vacation for so long
that today in Washington, a judge ruled that a young couple
with two children can now legally move into the White
House because it appears to have been abandoned by its
previous tenants. -JAY LENO

The country of Cambodia named Angelina Jolie an
'honorary citizen' for all her work in Southeast Asia. Not
only that, there is a rumor that Jolie is responsible for the
breakup of North and South Korea.

The big story here locally is that the space shuttle Discovery
left California today. It's been here since it landed a week
ago. They say it will cost one million dollars to transport the
shuttle back to.Florida. A million dollars! So, apparently they
are driving it back! -JAY LENO

Lance Armstrong is going on a bike ride with President
Bush. Apparently Armstrong's mom called the president's
mom and they set the whole thing up. They're going to have
a sleep over, build a tent and maybe eat s'mores.

The president is excited about Lance Armstrong's visit.
How many times do you get a chance to go biking with
someone who's been on the moon? BILLMAHER,

How many of you are glad they're writing a new constitution
in Iraq? How many of you just wish they'd stop rewriting
ours here at home? JAY LENO,

The Rolling Stones are aboutto go outontour, Tickets are $100.
But the good news is --Medicare will kick in half. JAY LENO

The Rolling Stones' new album contains a song that
criticizes President Bush. This marks the first time the
Rolling Stones have criticized a President since Millard

Eight cities in Texas are competing with each other to be
the location for the George Bush Library. It's BYOB -- bring
you own books.... The George Bush Presidential Library
- that shouldn't take up too much space: a box of cliff notes
and pop-up books. ... The only thing Bush ever checked
out of a library was Laura. JAY LENO

After a month-long search, the White House has hired
the first female chef in history. And the administration is
making a big deal about the fact that she's a female. Finally,
women getting into cooking. President Bush's favorite food
is peanut butter and honey sandwiches. That was also
President Bill Clinton's favorite -- the only difference was
Clinton liked his honey on the side. -JAY LENO

munity. He understands com-
munity concerns and wants to
assure our community that ATS
training will not adversely im-

pact Calhoun County. In fact, his
organization chose our county

(such as rivers, creeks, swamps,
and forests) that allow them
to simulate training for actual
combat in like features of other
countries. He advised that train-
ing has already occurred in areas,
like the Apalachicola River and
its banks, and that most of the
community did not even know
training was in progress.
Logan Barbee, County Exten-
sion Director, assisted in the pre-
sentation. He advises that ATS
locating in our county will give
our youth positive role models

Diet can correlate with children's behavior
Excessive fidgeting, difficulty concentrating, impulsivity. Mani-
festing-these symptoms, millions of children have been diagnosed
with an attention disorder. According,to the U.S. Department
of Health and Human Services, four percent of school-age chil-
dren meet the criteria for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
(ADHD) each year. However, many of these children do not have
any disorder at all.
"Before you conclude that your child has a disorder," says Kathy
Bratby, M.S.N., R.N., a clinical assistant professor at Stony Brook
University School of Nursing, in New York, "take a look at what he
or she is eating."
When a child is evaluated for attention and behavior problems,
a key factor is often overlooked diet. Man\ studies show that a
child's diet can directly correlate to his beha\ ior and learning capa-
Parents may notice that their child behaves differently after con-

suming brightly colored. cereals, certain soft drinks or candy. As-
suming that their child is on a "sugar high," they overlook the real
culprits --artificial food dyes and flavorings.
"Food dyes are synthesized from petroleum, just like gasoline,"
Bratby explains, "and it doesn't take much to set off a sensitive
child. Artificial flavorings can be made from thousands of s. nthetic
chemicals, and some people don't tolerate them."
The nonprofit Feingold Association of the United States assists
families of children with learning and behavior problems. Parent
volunteers show families how to find the foods they can enjoy with-

Quincy event to honor the late W.A. Woodham

Friends say Andy Griffith
could've learned a few lessons
from him.
Gadsden County will remem-
ber a legend on Friday evening,
Aug. 26, when 100 friends of

the late W.A. Woodham sponsor
an event honoring the long-time
county sheriff at the Quincy Na-
tional Guard Armory. A 6 p.m.
reception, 7 p.m. dinner and
dance afterward will celebrate

Woodham's life while raising
funds for a scholarship in his
name to Chipola College, where
he served as 1962 student body
"W. A. touched the lives
of thousands of people," said
long-time friend James Harold
Thompson, Gadsden County

native and former Speaker of
the Florida House of Represen-
tatives. "He was truly a unique
person. He loved the people of
our county. He probably could
have achieved anything he want-
ed in public life yet he chose
Gadsden County," Thompson
observed. "Now we have an op-
portunity to show our gratitude
for all he did for us."
When Woodham concluded
his tenure as sheriff last fall, he
had served 33 years as the coun-
ty's top law enforcement offi-
cer. That made him the dean of
county sheriffs in Florida. Wide-
ly known and respected through-
out the state, Woodham has been
likened to Sheriff Andy Taylor
of the long-running TV series,
"Mayberry RFD." In fact, Leon
County Sheriff Larry Campbell
has suggested that actor Andy
Griffith could have learned a few,

Car Club visits railroad

at Veterans Park

in Bristol

One of the Antique Car Clubs of
Tallahassee visited Bristol on Saturday,
Aug. 13 with a stop at the Veterans
Park train. Twenty-five
members driving nine
antique cars and two --
replicas enjoyed showing
their beautifully restored
vehicles. After coffee and
donuts, the park's railroad
staff delighted them with a
train ride which included a
stop at the East pavilion to
tell them the history of the
railroad and future plans
for it and the park. Visiting
hobby groups (even if they
are not train related) are
always welcome to come
see the train.


by Richard Williams,
Journal sports writer
Y ou wouldn't know it was
a preseason game by the
numbers of fans in the stands
as longtime rivals from Liberty
County and Blountstownmet on
Bowles Field Friday night.
Approximately 2,200 bought
tickets to the Aug. 19 match-up,
which ended with a 34-0 shutout
for the Blountstown Tigers over
the Liberty County Bulldogs.
The Tigers looked to have a
touchdown on their third play
from scrimmage, but a holding
penalty put BHS in a third and
24 hole. The next pass was in-
complete as the Bulldog defense
leveled the receiver when the ball
reached his hands. An unsports-
manlike penalty as a result of
the celebration after the hit then
Imo! ed the ball Lup 15 yards. Still,
facing a long fourth down. the
Tigers punted.
LCHS Head Coach Randy
Roland said the penalty one of
two personal foul against LCHS
was disappointing to him. "I
thought both teams played with
a lot of C .1, i wasn't the same
kind of game ou saw' last year,
and I was ciad of that for both
teams," Roland said.
Liberty moved the ball eight
yards on second down, but failed
to make a gain on third down and
punted to the Tigers.
BHS had a long run on first
do0vn nullified when the runner
fumbled and LCHS recovered to
give the Bulldogs the ball on the
Tiger 38.
Facing third and seven, the
Bulldogs had a turnover of their
own as quarterback Jace Ford was
intercepted by Titus Overholt.
BHS needed just tmo plays
to turn the LCHS mistake into
points as Tiger quarterback Mi-
chael Guilford hooked up with
Arsenio Ivory on a 60 yard run.
The extra point was no good
and the Tigers held a 6-0 lead
with 5:59 remaining in the first
S quarter.
An interception gave the Ti-
gers their second touchdown of
the night as Chance Attaway
returned his interception of Jase
Ford 33 yards for a touchdown.
The Tigers went for the two-point
conversion, but the quarterback
S \\as stopped by a solid hit short
of the goal line.
BHS led 12-0 with 4:23 re-
mainig -i n the first quarter.
Attaway also scored the next
points ofthe game as the Tigers'
running back romped 83.yards
through the Bulldog defense for a
score. The t o-point con version
was good and the Tigers had a
20-0 lead in the first quarter.
A 15-yard run by Ryan Baker
put six more points on the board
to stretch Blountstown's lead to
26-0 at halftime,.
The onlh score of the third
quarter came from a safety when
Josh Sa\ell blocked a punt, mak-
ine it 28-0.
A 20-yard touchdown pass
I ; from Cory Cox to John Lockhart

shut out Liberty County 34-0

sealed the Tigers' 34-0 shutout.
After that score the Tigers
"took a knee" on the two-point
conversion which prevented
the start of a running clock that
begins when one team has a 35
point lead. BHS Coach Bobby
Johns said they did so "out of
respect for Liberty County."

Despite the lopsided win, the
heat took its tool on his players,
said Coach Johns. "It was stag-
nating," he said, noting that even
though his guys are in good shape
it was a tough night physically.
"Luckily for us, we were able to
get enough of a lead at halftime
that a lot of our starters didn't
have to play in the second half.
We were able to mix folks in and
not kill anybody with the heat."
Tiger quarterback Michael
Guilford was 4 for 7 passing with
58 yards while quarterback Cory
Cox was 1 for 1 for 20 yards with
one touchdown.
Chance Attaway had three
carries for 100 yards and one
Arenio Ivory had twoo carries
for So0 ards and one touch-
John Lockhart had t\% o catches
for 45 yards and one touch-
Defensively, Arsenio Ivory
had 14 tackles, followed by Ja-
mie VWillis %%ith 13 and Chance
Attaway with 12. Greg Meeks
led the defensive line with nine
tackles, followed b\ Chaz Johns
with eight.
Attaway and Titus Overholt
had one interception each.

This Friday the Tigers will
open their regular season at.
home. "That'll be a big one
for us," Johns said about the
game with Port St. Joe. "We've
won the last four years in a row
against them. We want to make
sure that doesn't end this week,"
he said, adding, "It's hard to
continue beating good teams year
after 3 ear.

gers' strength up front and speed
across the field made a big differ-

the Bulldogs hurt their cause by
over running plays and missing

full of experienced players, and
we've got five returning seniors,
and that makes a lot of difference
over the course of a game."
Roland said he was glad the
game. was over, and added he
was looking forward to the real
season starting.
"I'm glad we played them,
that game helped get us in shape,
show-ed me our team won't quit.
sho\ ed me we've got some areas

to step up and pla\," Roland said.
"I think our special teams play ed
real well, on defense. I thought

played well, and Heath Flanagan
showed me he is 120 percent
above where he was last year."
He continued, "We've got to
improve our line play to give
our backs a chance to make
positive yards, they fought ha,'d.
but ~ie'\e got to improve and on
defense \e'\e simple got to get
better, hit our assignments. and
play our positions the w\ay they
are supposed to be played. "
The Bulldogs travel to Bron-
son for the season opener and
Coach Roland said he is glad the
Bulldogs start the regular season
withatemn in their classification.
He continued, "Bronson is a lot
like us. The key to this game
is going to be the line play and
the tean that wins the battle up
front ill be the team that vins
the 2amne."
When asked about the impact
a preseason loss to Blounti.tio, '
will have on the team he replied,
"Our kids have to realize that
the real season starts next week,
they have to take the lessons they
learned in that game and put them
to good use.: I've learned our
team don'tt quit, and I e learned
we've got some pretty good kidM
on this team, and I hope they've
learned the same thing."
He added, "Finally we can
concentrate on something besides
Blountstown and that is good
for us."

Spinning "Gold" from hairy plant roots

by Sandy Miller Hays,
Agricultural Researcn Service
You've probably read about
the high hopes that some scien-
tists have for finding valuable
medicinal plants in the Amazon
rainforest. Of the 3,000 plants
identified by the National Can-
cer Institute as active against
cancer cells, reportedly 70
percent of those plants can be
found in the rainforest.
Of course, it's been known
for centuries that plants are
valuable sources of medici-
nal compounds. In fact, mod-
ern aspirin is a synthetic copy
of a compound from the white
willow tree studied by the
Greek physician Pedanius Di-
oscorides, who, in around A.D.
60, reported his findings on
compounds from plants, ani-
mals and minerals in writings
that were used by the medical
profession as a reference for the
next 1,600 years.
But scientists with the Agri-
cultural Research Service are
showing that you don't have to
go as far as the Amazon rain-
forest or the Mediterranean sea-
coast to find plants with amaz-
ing capabilities. In fact. they're,
busy these days exploring a
plaint that has thrived for )ears
in the American South: the cot-
ton plant.
In ARS' New Orleans labora-
tory,-the scientists have injected
a soil-dwelling bacterium. Rhi-
zobium rhizogenes. into cot-
ton seedlings. The bacterium
causes the seedling's leaf tis-
sue to sprout fine, waving roots,
called "hairy roots." These.
hairy roots, grown in the lab in
petri dishes, are being used to
produce all sorts of compounds
that could be of pharmaceutical
One of the most interesting
compounds is a yelhlo pigment
called gossypol. This pigment
also is found in cotton seeds.
leaves and stems. and accumu-
lates in the cotton plant's outer
tissues to protect them against
-damaging insects. ,It discour-
ages grazing animals, too, with
its bitter taste.
Although gossvpol is found
in cottonseed, the methods for
extracting it are some%\hat lim-
ited. So the ARS scientists have
spent the past couple of years
studying whether the hairy root
cultures could produce gossy-
pol in abundance. The. "ve nar-
rowed the field from a starting
point of 100 hair root lines
down to 10. Now they're ex-
perimenting with hormones
and the substances in which the
hairy roots are gro\\ n in the pe-
tri dishes, and are now seeing a
very high level of production of
They're als6 studying which

forms of gossypol are being
produced. Gossypol from cot-
ton plants exists in two dif-
ferent forms, called isomers.
These two forms are mirror
images of each other, just like
your hands--even though your
two hands are very similar, the
thumbs do point in different di-
This "handedness" of the
gossypol forms has led the sci-
entific \orld to call these com-
pounds chiral, after the Greek
word for hand. chir. Chiral iso-
mers are chemically similar to
one another-for example, they
boil at the same temperature--
but they are different in their
biological activity and potency.
One of the forms of gossypol
is called the (+) isomer, because
it rotates polarized light to the
right, in a positive direction.
This form has been shown to
be less toxic to animals, but it
can have effects on insects, fun-
gi and microbes. It's the other
form, called the (-) isomer,
that's of interest to'cancer re-
searchers..(Yes, you guessed it;
it's called the (-) form because
it rotates polarized light to the
left, rather than the rihht.i

Every week, the ARS scien-
tists produce several grams of
pure chiral gossypol, a bright-
yellow powder, and share sam-
ples of the (+) and (-) forms
with researchers around the
world. One researcher at Ohio
State University is focusing on
the effectiveness of gossypol
from cottonseed as a preventive
agent against breast and pros-
tate cancer. With the help of the
ARS scientists in New Orleans,
the OSU scientist has been able
to identify the (-) goss.pol as
the most potent form.
If the OSU studies continue
to confirm goss\pol's antican-
cer activity, the next step could
be collaboration \ith the ARS
scientists to develop products
from cottonseed meal that could
act as therapeutic or preventive
agents for human breast cancer.
This would be quite a turn-
around for gossypol, which
until now has been either dis-
carded or fed to livestock. Tons
of cottonseed are fed to cows in
this country-but if gossypol
continues to show promise for
medicinal use, it could find its
way to a very different group of

-Nothing will grab your at-
tention quicker in the landscape
than a brilliant red- flower the
size of a saucer. And one such
eye-catching plant is the scarlet
hibiscus, a Florida native. It is
known botanically as Hibiscus
coccineus and has many com-
mon names including Texas star
hibiscus, marsh mallow and the
scarlet rose mallow.
The scarlet hibiscus is a tall,
slender, multi-trunked peren-
nial that dies back in winter but
Reliably returns in spring. The
plant is one of the taller peren-
nials and can reach heights of
four to six feet with a three to
four foot spread. The leaves are
deeply divided into five sharply
pointed lobes. While the foliage
is 'distinctive and attractive, the
flowers are spectacular.
Scarldt, star-shaped flowers
appear in mid to late summer.
The flowers are five to six inch-
es across with petals that don't
overlap. Each lasts only a day.

Beware of a silent killer: Carbon monoxide
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Conunission reported ap-
proximately 126 unintentional non-fire carbon monoxide-poisoning
deaths each year during the most recent three-year period (1999-
2001) it has analyzed. You may be wondering how to avoid a carbon
monoxide catastrophe. The best way to prevent these tragedies is
through greater awareness of safe practices, including annual main-
tenance of heating appliances and venting systems and the use of
carbon monoxide detectors in every home.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, and poisonous gas
that comes from the incomplete combustion of fuels such as natural
gas, propane, oil, coal, gasoline, and other fuels. Some symptoms
of CO poisoning may mimic common illnesses such as influenza or
colds. Exposure to high concentrations of CO can result in death
There are many contributors to this potential hazard. Most peo-
ple recognize fuel-fired heating appliances as a potential source of
carbon monoxide. Fewer people are aware of the other contributors
to this potential hazard that are often brought into the home even
though it is dangerous to do so: charcoal grills, camping stoves, por-
table gasoline-powered generators, and engine powered tools.
Another source of CO is exhaust fumes from automobiles left
running in attached garages where CO can seep into the living areas
of the home. Most unintentional CO poisonings from home heat-
ing appliances can be prevented by proper equipment installation
and maintenance, and making sure appliance fumes are properly
GAMA, the national association of manufacturers of space and
water heating appliances, urges homeowners to keep their heating
appliances clean by removing debris, lint and animal hair from their
heating systems' air vents and ducts. When your equipment needs to
be repaired or replaced, call a contractor who is properly licensed.
It is always advisable to ask for a NATE-certified technician-(North
American Technician Excellence). And just like the wisdom of in-
stalling a smoke alarm, a CO alarm should be installed in every
home. CO alarms should be centrally located in the immediate vicin-
ity of the bedrooms. Where sleeping areas are separated, more than
one alarm may be neledd, ,, ..

It's time to register for deer-dog season

Hunters who use dogs to hunt
deer on private lands in Florida
must now register their deer-
dogs for the 2005-06 -hunting
This new statewide, no-cost
registration program is not only
mandatory during any open deer-
hunting season when taking deer
with dogs is permitted, but also
during the upcoming deer-dog
training season.
The deer-dog training season
opens Oct. 1 and runs through
Oct. 20 in the central and south
hunting zones. In the Northwest
Hunting Zone, the training sea-
son runs Oct. 29 Nov. 17.
Registration may be issued to
hunting clubs or landowners for
anyone who wants to hunt deer
with dogs on a particular tract
of land. A unique registration
number will be issued from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC),
and that number must be affixed
or attached to the collars of dogs
used to hunt deer on registered
To comply with this new rule,
a representative.from each hunt-
ing club must complete the ap-
propriate application which is
available from regional FWC
offices and at MyFWC.com/
hunting. Proof 6of landowner
permission or a copy of the writ-
ten lease agreement must be pro-
vided along with a general map
of the property showing bound-
ary lines and a legal description.
Hunters must possess copies
of their registration while they
are hunting, and they must keep
their dogs on registered proper-
ties, as required by the Hunter
Responsibility Rule.
"This new statewide registra-
tion program is a direct result
of last year's successful pilot
program in northwest Florida,
where our commissioners tried
to balance the rights of prop-
erty owners while preserving
the long-standing tradition of
deer-dog hunting in Florida,"
said Nick Wiley,-director of the
Division of Hunting and Game
"Seventy indi% idual proper-
ties, representing 55 deer-dog
hunt clubs, participated. Those
properties ranged from 40 to
31,000 acres and were situated
in 14 of the 16 counties within
the FWC's Northwest Region,"
Wiley said.
With the pilot program in
place, complaints dropped 27
percent, compared to the aver-
age of the previous four hunting
seasons..More importantly, only
five complaints were associated
with registered deer-dog hunting
In comparison, a review of

Tell 'em you

,','.';.,':'v'. ,

last season's complaint data for
the North Central and Northeast
regions, where registration was

not required, showed an increase
in deer-dog hunting complaints
from the average of the previous
four hunting seasons.
