Arrest made after man gets into


altercation while trying to see ex


A fight among three people
with sticks and a bat at a Scotts
Ferry home resulted in the arrest
of a Calhoun County man on
charges of assault with a deadly
weapon and felony battery.
Joshua-Best, 19, was arrested
after he went to a home where
his ex-girlfriend was staying.
The two had split up that morn-
ing.
A report from the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office gave
the following account of the


incident:
Best's mother and another
woman went to the Hwy. 71'
South home to see the ex-girl-
friend moments before Best
arrived around 7 p.m. on Sept.
5. While the three women were
talking, Best pulled up in the
yard and got out of his car car-
rying a stick in each hand. His
mother confronted Best and
tried to get him to leave, but he
was adamant about seeing his
former girlfriend.


Argument results in arrest on

assault and battery charge
A Bristol man is facing charges of aggravated assault, domestic
battery, possession of less than 20 grams cannabis and possession of
drug paraphernalia after his girlfriend reported that he held a knife
to her throat and threatened her.
The woman said that during an argument with Justin James Pctt.
24, he grabbed her and threw her around the room before putting a
knife to her throat stating that he was going to kill her if she left him.
She said he then told her, "he was playing."
The woman got away from him and stayed with a friend until go-
ing to the hospital. She then contacted the Liberty County Sheriff's
Department.
Petty was taken into custody after a deputy found him in a motel
room. While talking with the suspect, the deputy noticed a plastic
bag of marijuana and a pipe in plain view and charged him for being
in possession of cannabis and drug paraphernalia.
Petty is being held at the Liberty County Jail on $25,000 bond. He
remained in custody as of Tuesday night.

Wreck leaves pickup on guardrail
A driver escaped serious injury after a mishap just north of
Blountstown left the front of his 1995 Ford pickup in a ditch and the
rear propped up on a guardrail Monday, according to a report from


Michael Spitzer, 48, came
out of the-house and told Best
to leave the property. Spitzer
told deputies that Best walked
up to him and started swinging
the sticks, almost hitting him
several times.
Spitzer said he managed to
back Best off the property twice,
but he kept coming back.
Best then threatened to burn
the building down and kill
everyone in the house, Spitzer
reported..
Best continued coming on
to the property, swinging the
sticks around in a threatening
manner, Spitzer said: Spitzer's
girlfriend, Karen Hoffman, 40,
was in the house \ith BesI's ex,
Amanda Miranvell; 18.
'Best hit Spitzer in the left
forearm, causing a laceration
and bruising. Hoffman's son
tried to stop Best, but was nearly
struck a number of times. He
then ran and got a baseball bat
and used it to deflect the blows
from Best's sticks. After one of
the sticks broke, Best threw it at
his abdomen.
Best then went across the
road and waited as Spitzer at-
tempted to contact authorities
on his cell phone. When the
phone would not work, Spitzer
got in his truck to go to a neigh-
bor's home to call for help. As
he drove off, Best hit the driver's
side window with his fist, leav-
ing an imprint.
Best was released on $2,000
bond Sept. 6.

Internet casino company to pay $15,000


for tattoo ad on Clarksville woman's chest


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A wild idea, a sense
of adventure and
an eBay account is making
a Calhoun County woman
$15,000 richer.
Delores Ping, 32, of Clarks-
ville, decided to find a fun way
to make a little extra money by
offering to tattoo an advertise-
ment on her chest to the highest
bidder on eBay. It took a few
tries, but she finally got what
she was looking for when an
online casino company met her
price of $15,000 last week.
She. began her. auction at-
tempts last month. First, she
offered to have the tattoo on
her back. _Goldenpalace.com
made a small bid at that time,
but it wasn't enough.
She upped the ante by offer-
ing to get tattooed in a spot no
one would miss her upper
chest. As the deadline for the
auction to close approached,
Goldenpalace.com kicked :in
and began bidding once more.
This time, they met her price.
"I had about 5,000 hits on,
* the last auction," she said. Of
that number, five people put
in bids.
SA frequent user of eBay's
online auction, she has bought
and sold many items. She and
her boyfriend once sold an
empty box that the' ad\veltised
as "'Bad case of dumb a--" for
$26. Most of her eBay activit..
was more for fun than a serious
money making enterprise.


Wanting to find a way to help with
house payments, set up a savings ac-
count and buy her two sons, age 10
and 11, their own four-wheelers, she
came up with the idea of offering
to tattoo an ad on her body after
looking at several similar auction
listings. This time, she was ready
to make a little money. And have
some fun with it.
A date has not been
set for her to get the per-
manent tattoo, but the
company sent some tem-
porary tattoos for her to
wear, along with some
smaller ones for her-kids
to put on their wrists.
Ping, her children and
her boyfriend got their
first taste of public re-
action\ hen they went
to Disney World last
weekend after apply-
ing the tattoos.

LATE NIGHT LAUGHS
a. A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS
BY LATE NIGHT TELEVISION HOSTS.


W ith politics aside, what
Sdid we learn from Ka-
trina? The obvious answer is that
the federal, state and local govern-
ments aren not prepared to- cope-
with a large-scale, catastrophic
event whether the event is caused
by Mother Nature or a terrorist.
California has earthqualkes,
fires and nudslides. The western
states have, large fires burning.
thousands of acres of trees and
brush along with many houses.
River flooding occurs in the east-
ern U.S. which flooding many
riverbank towns. Tornados cut
destructive swaths through towns,
primarily in the Midwest. Hurri-
canes hit the Gulf Coast.
Somehow, government and
people cope with those events.
So, what was different about the
flooding in New Orleans? The
flooding of a river bottom and
parts of a town are not the same
as flooding an entire town. Not
only are the houses underwater,
the infrastructure of the town
is underwater. There is no high
ground. Nothing works.
The results from a hurricane
and a town underwater are not the
same. In hurricanes, we lose roofs,
houses blow away and storm surge
levels the coastline, but when the
pieces stop falling, the infrastruc-
ture is there, battered, but there.
In a flooded town, communica-
tion systems are gone. You need
boats to move around the city.
You need the capacity to move
large numbers of people to high
ground if there is such a thing. You
need a logistics system to provide'
shelter, medical aid, food and
water. Logistical requirements are
enormous.
The lesson learned from Hur-
ricane Katrina is that America's.
Homeland Security organization
needs some work.
Republicans cany on about
wanting less government, but Mr.
Bush has created as much, or more
"big government" than President
Franklin D. Roosevelt did in the
1930s. '

COX'S

CORNER
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.
:-
I worked in Washington, and
new organizations such as Home-
land Security require a staff,
office space, parking places, and
letterhead.
In the past, the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA) was a cabinet level
agency, but Mr. Bush.kluged
FEMA into Homeland Security.
Well, Homeland Security is all
about the terrorist threat. Little
thought was given to dealing with
natural disasters. After all, Florida
was just battered by four hurri-
canes and Florida is doing okay, so
why worry? Governors and local
officials take care of hurricane
victims and FEMA shows up and
spreads money around.
President Bush and his admin-
istration have found out why they
should have worried. Mr. Bush
has been criticized for failing
to respond quickly enough with
federal assistance when New
Orleans flooded. Now with 20/20
hindsight, that criticism is war-
ranted. Mr. Bush admits that the
federal government was slow to
get out of the chocks. But in all
fairness, there is plenty of blame
for all, including the officials of
New Orleans and.Louisiana.
Another lesson learned is that
the federal government might not
be able to save you. There might
not be a cavalry coming over the
hill to save your town. Which
means that cities and states with
high risk factors like hurricanes
.and earthquakes should do their
homework and decide what is
needed in the way of planning
and equipment for the worst-case
scenario.
That is a no-brainer for New


Orleans. Build dikes and levees
that will stand up to a category
five hurricane and forty days and
forty nights of rain, just like in
the Bible.
The problem with that state-
ment is that waterways, dikes and
levees in the U.S. are the respon-
sibility of the U.S. Army Corp of,
Engineers. Both Democrat and
Republican administrations are
guilty of failing to budget money
for mundane things like repairing
the Mississippi River levees.
Another problem is that politi-
cians are elected because they
promise never to raise your taxes.
Vice President Cheney made his
complimentary 'visit to the Gulf
Coast disaster area and reassured
his Republican friends that no new
taxes would be required to-pay
the billions of.dollars needed for
'disaster relief and rebuilding of
the Gulf Coast. No problem, we'll
just borrow the money.
Of course, all the while, Mr.
Bush is spending about $5 billion
per month for his Middle East vi-
sion. I don't think that democracy
in Iraq or Saddam Hussein is in the
thoughts of people whose homes
are underwater, or whose homes
were turned into Splinters.
Even if they had the backbone
to d6 it, I am not sure that politi-
.cians can convince people that
they should pay more taxes to
prepare for catastrophic events..
SThe people in this county where I
live go nuts if someone mentions
the "T" word.
The locals here have just dis-
covered that the very unrealistic
appreciation rates for property
have increased the assessed value
of their property and even with
an unchanged mileage rate, they
are going to pay higher property
taxes. Talk about hostile!
As this sordid tale of failed
disaster response unfolds,-the
lesson to be repeated, not learned,
is that politics will prevent real
solutions. This event will get the
Band-Aid treatment., ,So, ldon'.t '
worry, be happy.......

Two Blountstown officers return from week

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Two local law enforcement offi-
cers have returned to Blountsto\ n
after spending a \ eek helping the
10-member police department
in hurricane-ra\aged Wiggins,
NMississippi.
Major Rodney Smith and Of-
ficer Fred Tanner spent three days
directing long lines of traffic and
then took over 12-hour day shifts
for the rest of their stay. The


town is about the size of Bristol
and Blountstown combined, said
Smith.
"When we got there the\ had

said Smith. explaining those
"were the only ones open in
southern Mississippi." The lines
for gas were a half mile to a mile
long at each station. Smith and
Tanner did what they could to
keep them moving. Since each


purchase was limited to $20,
many customers got back in line
for another turn after their first
trip to the pump. Despite the
long, hot x ait in line, "People
i\ere courteous and acted like
they appreciated us." he said.

Don't wait for a disaster to show you care

attention they have never had
before. It's a shame that it takes a
disaster of this proportion to show
a little care and compassion for
our fellow man.
But, people, stop and think
about the ones here that are your
neighbors. There are many that
are alone, disabled and have no
family. Most people don't even
know their neighbor's name.
The least bit of kindness would
be appreciated.
Some of you need to come out of
your closed-up perfect little world
and see how many in our own
town are alone and without hope.
Why does it take something so
devastating to make people show


a little care? We all have hearts
and we all have feelings.
I have heard the remarks
made like "he or she is an old
grouch" or "they sure are mean
and hateful." Could it be this is
all they have received?
If we could receive more love,
I am sure it would be passed on.
Whatever happened to "love
your neighbor as yourself"?
Maybe you don't love yourself
much either.
When all this is in the far future
and back to what, is considered
normal, will it be again out of
sight and outof mind?

Church of God establishes Disaster Relief Fund


Church of God officials met
in a special session on August
31 to map out a strategic plan of
relief and establish the Church
of God Disaster Relief Fund
which will allow gifts and dona-
tions to be received for victims
of Hurricane Katrina.
Breeched levees in New
Orleans complicated relief and
recovery efforts.
Almost as soon as the hurri-
cane left the Gulf Coast region,
calls began to flood the inter-


national offices of the Church
of God asking how individuals
can help. In response to the
outpouring of compassion, the
Church of God has established
the fund.
"Because of the devastation
of this hurricane we have been
hampered from being able to
be on the spot immediately,"
stated Scot Carter, director of
communications for the Church
of God. "Debris and unsafe
conditions have mandated only


the most qualified agencies and
individuals to access the hardest
hit areas. But we are ready and
mobilized, along with Opera-
tion Compassion, to move right
in when the way is clear."
Carter stated that the Church
of God has established five
distribution centers in the fol-
lowing areas: Gulfport, Miss.;
Mobile, Ala.; and Baton Rouge,
Irvington and Covington, La.
These centers are distributing
ice, water and dry food. In ad-

LUST OF THE EYES
Text: 1 John 2: 15- 17
The Prairie Overcomer reported
archaeological findings in the ancient
city of Pompeii. Pompeii was a city
of 20,000 people living in the shadow
of a volcano.
When the volcano erupted, one
lady started running to escape. Before
she left, she gathered up all the jew-
elry she could. She put rings on ev-
ery finger andfheld in her arms jewels
worth a small fortune. By the time she
collected all of the jewelry, the ash
and fumes were already thick. They
overcame her as she ran. She fell still
clinging to her possessions. "There,
under the ashes of Pompeii she lay;
and when the excavators found her,
she was still lovely, and her hands
were still laden with jewels."
SBarnes says the lust of the eyes
is "that which is designed merely to
pjaifi he sight." Plummer says it is
"lust that has its origin in sight." A
person sees something. He wants it
because it looks amiacri' Then his
desire bec.'nmes so: important thai he
is v. illne 1 '- dish.:ei God to )'brain it
That is lut ft the eies
This kind of tenipiaiio:,n often pre-
cedes others. Fo'r instance, a man no-
tices an attractive woman. He stops to
gaze at her beauty. The desires of his
flesh well up within him and he -finds
himself embroiled in temptation. Sai-
tan attacks on two.fronts tempting
him to fulfil his desires in a sinful
way. It could have been avoided if the
man had known not to take the second
glance.
Be careful of what you see. Once.
yoi see it, you can't un-see it. This
image is there in your mind. It % dl
come back to tempt you at your weak-
est moment. Especially monitor o hat
you watch on television and the in-
ternet. Do not let your eyes lead you
astray.'
Ryan McDougald is a licensed, ordained Free
Will Baptist Minister hosting Bible study in the
home. For more information, call 674-6351.

Volunteer Florida encourages everyone to donate wisely for hurricane relief


from the State Emergency
Operations Center
TALLAHASSEE The
Governor's Commission on
Volunteerism and -Community
Service, Volunteer Florida, com-
mends Floridians for their tre-
mendous response to the needs
of Hurricane Katrina victims.
The level of caring and desire to
assist has been unprecedented.
In order to ensure that your
efforts are as effective as possi-
ble, Volunteer Florida is provid-
ing the following information to
everyone who wants to donate.
Financial Contributions are
Greatly Needed Financial
contributions help to avoid the
labor and expense of sorting,
packing, transporting and distrib-
uting donated goods, and volun-
tary relief agencies can use cash
to meet hurricane victims' spe-
cific needs more quickly. Please
continue to gi\ e. Financial gifts;,
no matter how small, are vitally
important now. Please visit our
Web site at volunteerflorida.org
for a list of relief organizations..
Donations of Clothing and
Household Goods -I In-kind
clothing donations are best when
they come from companies that
can provide new items in quanti-


ties to meet the mass-care needs
of victims.
Unsolicited, spontaneous do-
nations of clothing from indi-
viduals and community groups,
although well-intentioned, have
hidden costs and pose a number
of complications for initial relief
efforts.
At this time, relief agencies
are not collecting clothing items
for victims of the storm. Collec-
tions of clothing items require
valuable and scarce resources to
sort, clean, and distribute them.
This comes at the expense of
critical emergency .activities re-
lief workers are attempting to
perform. In addition, it is impos-
sible to know if spontaneously
donated items will be appropri-
ate for the relief effort.
SVolunteer Florida does not ac-
cept small-quantity donations of
clothing or household goods for
hurricane relief.
"If you are considering col-
lecting items for donation, it
is very important to confirm
the need before you start," said
Volunteer Florida-CEO Wiend\
Spencer. "We absolutely do not
want to discourage people who
want to help, but donating only


the items listed on volunteerflor-

ple to help after a disaster like
this."
What Items are Needed?
- Volunteer Florida encour-
ages everyone to donate water
and non-perishable, ready-to-eat
food items, to local, organized
collection sites. While making
a financial gift to the relief or-
ganization of your choice still is
the best way to help, Floridians
also can help by contributing the
urgently needed items listed on
our Web site. to help victims of


Hurricane Katrina.
Examples of "ready-to-eat"
food items include breakfast bars,
ready-to-feed baby food, cereal,
meals ready to eat (MREs), pea-
nut butter, jelly, crackers, pop-
top canned items, and any non-
perishables that can be opened
and consumed without the aid of
can openers or other utensils.
Donate Only needed items
-More supplies will be needed
in the coming weeks and months.
The Volunteer Florida Web site,
located at volunteerflorida.org,
will be updated daily, if not more
often, with an updated "needed
items" list, as well as compre-
hensive information resources


about how you can help the vic-
tims of Hurricane Katrina.
Organized collection drives
are in progress throughout Flor-
ida. Donors should check their
local media outlets for the loca-
tions of collection sites in their
areas.

.I': l'.e ,I -.t h '. .e re depletionn hnai is occurring
within our underground reservoir system due to
population growth, development, and saltwater
intrusion. In some areas, water requires
significant treatment before it is appropriate for
human consumption. Coastal cities that need
additional water supplies to keep up with demand
often must either lap into inland water supplies
or use alternate resources. Both options are
expensive and are guaranteed to drve up the cost
of water, thus increasing your water bills
Conservation can delay or perhaps eliminate a
utility's need to develop new, and potentially more
costly, water supplies

The Florida Public Service Commission believes
it is Important for consumers to be informed and
active in the conservation of our water supply
There are a number of simple steps every
residential consumer can take around the house
to decrease use (which can result in lower bills)
and save for the future:


4 Wash only full loads in your dishwasher
Auornatic dishwashers use 20 gallons of water
per ccle regardless of load size.
4 When you wash dishes by hand don t leave
Ihe water running.
4 Do not jse running water 1I thaw meat or
frozen foods
4 Use ire proper load setting when you use your
washing machine
4 U:se your garbage disposal sparingly
A Repair leaks at faucets indoors and our
4 During basic maintenance or repairs, check
all pipes in order to prevent future leaks



4 Water your lawn between the hours of 6 p.m
and 9 a.m The sun will not evaporate the walitr
as quickly as in the afternoon A hearty iriii
can eliminate the need for watering up to two
weeks
A Do not waler during windy conditions.
4 Use a sprinkler limer. If you don't have one,
us.- the kitchen timer


6 Let water sink in slowly Water applied too
quickly runs off
6 Use mulch in plant beds to control weeds and
retain moisture
6 Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveways
and sidewalks
4 Make sure all the water.from sprinklers falls
on your grass and shrubs, not on paved areas.


4 Lower the water level in the toilet.
4 Throw tissues and other trash in a wasle
basket, not the toilet.
4 Avoid leaving the water running while brushing
your teeth or shaving.
4 Take showers instead of baths.
4 Replace your toilet or shower head with a low-
fow water-saving model.
4 Check the toilet for worn-out, corroded or bent
parts Most replacement parts are inexpen-
sive, readily available, and easily installed.

Your water meter can also be used to detect
leaks. Check your water meter while no waler is
being used. If the dials are moving, then you have
a water leak. Leaks are often the result of a worn-
out washer in a faucet Even the slightest leak
can cause a significant increase in a consumer's
water bill Similarly if you have a well at home.
check your pump periodically If the pump kicks
on and off while water is not being used you
have a leak

conservation, please contact the Water
Management District in your area The PSC can
also assist by providing you with a free copy of
its 'Conserve Your World brochure This
brochure outlines some helpful ways to conserve
in and around .our home and is available in

Bulldogs chew up Bozeman Bucks 41-3


by Richard Williams,
Journal sports writer
Liberty County feasted
on venison for homecoming
as the Bulldogs devoured
the Bozeman Bucks 41-3
in non-district high school
football action Sept. 9.
Liberty's first touch-
down came 55 seconds into
the game as quarterback
Jace Ford took the second
snap and kept the ball for
a 61-yard touchdown run.
Ford carried the ball nine
times for 94 yards in the
game.
The Bulldog defense
shut the visiting Bucks
down on their next posses-
sion and after a punt, took
over on their own 38-yard
line. This time Liberty
needed four plays to score.
The touchdown came on a
45-yard run by Clint Hill.
Hill also kicked the extra
point to give Liberty the
14-0 lead.
Bozeman kicked a 28-
yard field goal midway
through the second quarter
for their only points of the
game. The three points
came after Bozeman put to-
gether a 14-play drive that
was aided by two penalties
against LCHS.
The touchdo\\ n run that
had the fans yelling the
most was also the shortest
scoring run of the night.
With just under three min-
utes remaining in the half,
Senior Jon Thomas moved
from his normal position
on the line to the backfield.
Thomas took the handoff
from Ford and ran into the
right side of the offensive
line.
As the 280-pound player
reached the goal line, he
hurdled a Bozeman de-
fender for a touchdown;
Thomas was most likely
playing in his last game
as a Bulldog since he has


reached the age limit set
by the Florida High School
Activities Association.
Liberty's only touch-
down of the third quarter
came on an eight-yard run
by A.J. Marlowe. Thad
Alston scored two fourth
quarter touchdowns on
runs of 36 and 65 yards.
LCHS Head Coach Ran-
dy Roland said that despite
the score, his team needed
to get better during the next
two weeks if they want to
win games in the district.
Liberty has an open week
and will play their first
district game the following
week against West Gads-
den.
Roland said, "We are
going to use the off week to
getin a lot of conditioning,
a lot of repetition, as well
as use the week to heal up
and get rid of some bumps
and bruises.
"We've got to remember
that right now the most im-
portant gane of the year is
the next district game, and
we've got to work hard if
we want to have a chance
to win."
The Bulldogs moved to
3-0 with the win.

Altha grad helps in Hurricane rescue


Hurricane Rescue
by John Baumer
A 2004 Altha graduate, Brandon
Waldorff, recently returned from his
post out of Pascagoula, Mississippi.
Brandon was in the Gulf of Mexico
on the Coast Guard cutter, Decisive,
when they got the news that Hur-
ricane Katrina had intensified to a
category five storm.
"So we headed west Friday be-
fore the hurricane hit," said Bran-
don. He also stated that as they
traveled west, their cutter was just
brushed by the eye wall of the hur-
ricane. Brandon said that they had
to wait a week before they could go
on shore, so he and his shipmates
looked for survivors that the\ had
heard were on some of the oil rigs.
He said that he looked through
53 oil rigs to find stranded men.
When they.did one of the men on
the rig ran a\ ai from him claiming
that the hurricane would come back,
and they assured him it \s o\er.
When the\ finally\ made landfall
in Gulf Port. liississippi. he saw
firsthand all of the destruction on
land. He said that "Everyone was in
a state of shock' he also said, that
'Just coming .out of high schooll ; ou
have to grow. up fast, but there are
some things you never get used to
seeing."
Brandon \ll b e lea ng for Yor-

Question: Is decaffeinated
green tea a good source of
EGCG?
A: Regular green tea is a
much better source of EGCG,
which is the antioxidant phyto-
chemical that shows many can-
cer-preventive effects in labo-
ratory studies. Decaffeinated
green tea contains about a third
of the EGCG in regular brewed
green tea. That amount, how-
ever, is still more than twice the
amount in black tea. You can
make up for the reduced amount
of EGCG in decaffeinated green
tea, compared to regular green
tea, by drinking more cups of
it.
Question: Do enzyme sup-
plements to prevent intestinal
gas really work?
A: Enzyme supplements can
help reduce intestinal gas that
comes from beans or lactose in-
tolerance, if you get a product
that resolves the gas problem
you have. People who develop
an uncomfortable amount of gas
from eating cooked dried beans
and peas should look for supple-
ments that contain the enzyme
called alpha-galactosidase. Gas
forms in these people because
their digestive enzymes do not
break down certain complex
carbohydrates in these foods.
causing the foods to ferment in
the large intestine and emit gas.
If you've been avoiding these
foods because of gas, these
,products rmay be worth a trn.
Dried beans, peas and lentils are
excellent sources of fiber, pro-
tein and a variety of vitamins.
minerals and phytochemicals.
Follow the directions.for the
supplements carefully. You need
to consume them at the same
time you eat the food. They
can't be added to the food while
it cooks. You can also lessen the
gas produced bh canned beans
by rinsing them well. For dried
beans, soak them several hours
or overnight. Discard the water
they soaked in before cooking.
People whose gasiness is due
to lactose intolerance, however,
won't be helped by these sup-
plements. Lactase tablets that
break down the carbohydrate
lactose in milk products may be
useful for them.
Question: Is sea salt a better
choice than regular table salt?
A: No. The two forms of salt
are equally high in sodium, and
sea salt offers no nutritional ad-
vantages over regular salt. Sea
salt is made from seawater and
contains trace amounts of sub-
stances such as magnesium, io-
dine and zinc. But most of these
are present in amounts so small
they're nutritionally insignifi-
cant. Furthermore, although it is
no longer necessary to-provide

Tigers conquer North Florida Christian Eagles 41-16


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The Blountstown Tigers re-
turned to the field Friday night
with something Coach Bobby
Johns says has been missing
lately a feeling for the game.
While he still finds room for
improvement in last week's ef-
fort, Johns was certainly pleased
to see the Tigers emerge with
a 41-16 win. "It's been a huge
goal for a long time to win this
ball game," Johns said. "Four
of North Florida Christian's kids
have already been offered Divi-
sion 1 scholarships and I think our
Skids wanted to show they could
Step up and play on that level.''
But, the coach started the
night out a little concerned \ hen
the Tallahassee team returned
Sthe opening kickoff 87 yards to
score.
S The Tigers soon answered that
score ith a 15-yard touchdown
run by Chance Attaway. Jacob
Williams kicked the extra point
to tie it at 7-7.
With 3:32 remaining in the
first quarter. Attaway scored on
another 15-yard run, follow \ ed by
a PAT by Williams.
In the second quarter. Atta\\ ay
scored on a 65-yard reception
from Michael Guilford. Again,'


the extra point kick by Williams
was good and put the score at
21-7.
The Eagles scored on a short
run to make it 21-14 b\ half-
time.
When the Tigers returned for
the third quarter, Guilford scored
on a 10-yard run topped off by


another Williams PAT to edge the
scoring gap to 28-14.
With 7:15 left in the fourth
quarter. Blountstow n snapped the
ball in the end zone for a safer\ on
a punt and made the score 28-16.
With -40 seconds remaining. R\an
Baker scored on a six-yard run.
The Tigers took a knee. \v which left


the final score at 41-16.
The Tigers had 454 yards
offense with 344 yards rushing
and. I10 passing. North Florida
Christian had 228 yards offense
\ ith 218 yards rushing and 10
passing. ..
Chance Attaway had 14 rushes
for 129 yards and two touch-


downs, followed by Corey Silcox
and Arsenio Ivory each with six
rushes. Silcox had 73 yards,
Ivory had 70.
Michael Guilford had 11 rush-
es for 53 yards with one TD.
Attaway had one catch for 65
yards. Corey Silcox had three
catches for 32 yards and one TD.
Titus Overholt had one catch for
13 yards.
Defensively, Corey Silcox
had 12 tackles. Attaway, Ivory,
Overholt and John Lockhart each
had 10.
Johns noted that Jarrod Phil-
lips, #54, graded out at 95% in
last week's game. "He just did a
real good job. He was very physi-
cal up front and didn't miss. He
did a great job of leading that of-
fensive line. Alot of the improve-
ments last week are attributed to
him," the coach said.
This Friday's game with Ver-
non \will be the biggest of the
year, according to Johns. "We
beat them last year in the playoffs
32-7...they've been waiting on
us," he said. "They've got almost
their whole team back plus some
new additions."
The Tigers \ ill host Vernon at
Bowles Field at 7:30 p.m. (CT).

Once again, our landscapes
are showing damage from a
hurricane. Within a week of
Hurricane Katrina, the leaves of
many of our trees and landscape
plants are turning brown and
falling. While locally we es-
caped the major hurricane forc-
es experienced by other states,
we did feel Hurricane Katrina's
constant and prolonged winds.
High winds affect plants in sev-
eral different ways.
If you live along the coast,
you know that the wind carries
salt spray under normal circum-
stances. During tropical force
winds, salt is carried far inland
and leaves salt deposits on
plants. Salts can also be depos-
ited by flooding or by irrigating
with saline water.
Salt adversely affects plants
in two ways. First, excess salts"
in the soil greatly reduce the.
water uptake by plants. Even if


the soil has plenty of water, little
may be available to plants if too
many salts are present. Second-
ly, ,excessive salt can damage
plants by causing water to move
out of plants through a process
called osmosis. Plants suffering
from salt exposure may show
burning of the margins or tips
of leaves followed by defolia-

tion and, in some cases, death
of salt-sensitive species. Dam-
age is worse on young, tender
plants.
Plants react differently to
salts. Research has shown that
salt tolerance is related to the
plant's ability to prevent ab-
sorption of salts, its ability to
tolerate an accumulation of salt
or its ability to tolerate loss of
,water due to osmosis. In addi-
tion, some plants may be toler-
ant of soil salts but intolerant of
salt deposits on leaves, or vice
versa. These variables make it
difficult to identify a plant's salt
tolerance.
Salt tolerance of a plant is
defined by its ability to grow
under conditions of high winds,
salt spra\. alkaline soil's and
sandy infertile soils. Some salt
tolerant plants include yaupoh
holly, oleander, -saw palmetto;
wax myrtle and li~e oak. .For'
a complete list, review the UF/
IFAS publication entitled Salt
Tolerant Plants for Florida. It's,
available online at htrp://edis.
ifas.ufl.edu/EP012 or by calling
your local Extension Office.
For plants that ha\ e been ex-
posed to sali\water. irrigate them
with freshwater as soon as pos-
sible. Apply more water, and
water more frequently than un-
der normal conditions.'
For, inland landscapes, the
withering of foliage follow-
ing Hurricane Katrina is prob-
abl) due to desiccation or:'ind'
burn. Wind bum occurs when
plants lose moisture through:
their leaves more rapidly than
the moisture can be taken up by
the roots causing the leaves to
wither and fall off.
Normall. within a few weeks,
the plant will send up a new
generation of leaves to replace
the old ones and carry on the
business of capturing sunlight.
A new, flush of leaves this
late in the growing season is
not desirable but will happen
-nevertheless. If this is the on1l
damage, no special treatment is
required.
Resist the urge to fertilize or
encourage growth. We are ap-
proaching the dormant season
and the application of high ni-
trogen .containing fertilizers
could further complicate mat-
ters.
Tip of the Week: You may
notice that some fruit trees.
and spring flowering plants are
blooming when they shouldn't
be. This unseasonable flower-
ing is stress related. Anything
that causes leaves to come off
earlier than normal can result in
blooming out of season.,

Storm Stories episode about Calhoun tornado to be shown


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
T he worst night of Tiffany Lawrence's young life
will be televised tonight, Sept. 14, as a program
on The Weather Channel recreates the events that led to
the tragic death of her mother and grandfather.
The program, part of the Storm Stories series, is
scheduled for broadcast at 8 p.m. (ET) Wednesday. Ac-
cording to the program's Web site, the episode will be
repeated Sunday night at 8:30 p.m.
The half-hour show will recount what happened when
family members gathered at Melvin and Francis Terry's
mobile home to wait out the winds and rains unleashed
by Hurricane Ivan as it headed for the Gulf Coast on
Sept. 15, 2004, The hurricane spawned a tornado that
blasted through the area north of Blountstown known
as the Parrish Lake Community, lifting up the Terry's
trailer and dropping it onto a wood-frame house next
door.
Tiffany, who was then 16, emerged with only minor
injuries. Her mother,. Donna Fay Terry, and her grandfa-
ther, Melvin Terry, were killed. Tiffany's grandmother,
Frances Terry, and her cousin, Roger Hough, were in-
jured, but survived.
Production crew came to Calhoun County in June to
film reenactments with Tiffany and emergency workers
who answered frantic calls for help atthe scene that night,
when the rain was shooting sideways and the only clear
view anyone had was when the lightning flashed.
Tiffany, who is now 17, said she took part in the re-
enactment because, "I felt like it would give me a better
understanding of what happened that night.". Since the
crew began WOrking- on the episode, Tiffany has had
an opportunity to talk with paramedics, deputies and
firefighters who have helped her fill in the gaps of what
happened.
Here is what she remembers that night before her
grandparents' home was tossed up and dropped to the
ground by the deadly tornado.


That evening, "I was on the computer playing a game.
I walkedd outside to tell my mom I was tired and fixing
to go to bed."
Then, they heard a tornado report announced on TV.
Her cousin, Roger, came running out of his room aid
everyone else ran inside the bathroom of the mobile.
home.
"I told my mama to get into the tub. When I got in,
then she got over me. Then Roger was next into the tub
and my grandma was behind him. My grandpa.shut the,
door and then the lights went out."
The tornado hit.
Tiffany vividly recalls that her ear was at the drain of
the tub. "I could hear the wind really strong under the
trailer, ripping the back up. I was telling everybody that
I could hear it. The next thing I knew, we were going up
in the air,".she said..


1 "I could feel us going up. I remember saying, 'Oh,
God, please.' That's the last thing I remember."
When she came to, Tiffany had knots on her head, a
black eye, her nose was blue, her lip was busted and her
elbow was badly broken. "I had a few scratches and my
ears were bloody on the inside,".she said. "I guess Ijust
got knocked out...either that or I just shut myself off."
When she awoke, "It was pitch black. I remember
people screaming and I heard my grandma and grandpa
telling each other they couldn't breathe," she said. "I
heard Roger calling my name."
At first she thought she was dreaming. "Then I felt
the rain on me and that's when I realized I wasn't in bed
and I remembered the tornado."
The mobile home landed half a football field away, she
said. "What amazes me is that I went that far and still
came down in the tub," she said. "My mom was right
there with me the \\ hole time."
She remembers locking arms with her mother when
they got in the tub. Both had broken elbows where they
had clung tightly together.
When someone helped her to her feet at the scene thit
night she looked down and sa\\ her mothei.."I know her
legs were under mine. We landed basically in the same
spot." :
Aftei being carried to an ambulance, Tiffany waited
there alone for a while as others rushed through the debris
looking for the injured. She heard. a. voice, on the. am-
bulance radio reporting that they had one DOA (dead on
arrival). Because her mother had worked at one time for
the ambulance service, she knew what that code meant.
That night. she knew it \\ as referring to her mother.
Huddled together in a bathtub. the mother and daughter
went up together and landed together. Tiffany's -mioiher
died of blunt force trauma. "She had a lot of internal
injuries...she was just beaten'io death," Tiffan) said.
When asked how she survived, Tiffany could only say,
"I guess it's 'cos my mom was there and protected me.;'

permit from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission landed a 580-
lb. alligator in Liberty County Saturday.
The 11 foot, nine-inch-long specimen
was found near Alum Bluff, north of
the Bristol Boat Landing. The men also
caught a second smaller gator measuring
seven feet in length.
Scott Phillips. 29. and a co-worker.
Troy Hamburger. 49. of Chiefland. started
their hunt around dark on Sept. 8 \ ith a
prayer on the banks of the Apalachicola
River. Then the\ put their 14-fooi boat in
the water
This w as the first gator hunting experi-
ence for the two men. "When I applied for
the license, the state sent us a handbook
and we went from there." Philips said. His
friend attended a class sponsored b\ the
game conunission to learn the basics. "I
didn't ha e time to do that so I just studied
the handbook." Phillips said.
Besides the thrill of the hunt. Phillips
had another incentive to go after a gator:
at least two of his hunting dogs have been
eaten by alligators.
When the men set out last Thursday
night they quickIl found what they \were
looking for. "We left the Bristol Boat
Landing intending to go to the county line.
but.never made it." he said. Not long after
they gotin the water, their spotlight picked
up the red glint from the eves of approxi-
mately 30 alligators as the\ moved alon2
the Liberty County side of the never.
Phillips admits "wte were both a little
tense" when they went after the two ga-
tors. They put an arrow\ in the smaller one
first.. When he broke the line, they started


to work on the larger animal. When they
got the harpoon in the bigger alligator, "He
snatched the boat around and we realized
how large he was," he said. "Wheit we
pulled him to the surface, his tail came up
first." Then they got a better view of their
target when "we saw all those teeth come
up at the side of the boat."
The men used a bang stick a tube-
like device that fires a bullet on contact
- in an-attempt to kill the animal, but it


"did not work. "It w wouldn't even penetrate
him," Phillips said. "I shot him 10 times
with the bang stick, but what finally got
him was when I hit him on top of the head
with an ax."
Phillips said, "It was an ordeal, but I
really had a great time. It's dangerous, but
it's exciting."
After tagging out with their limit of.
two gators, the men are already looking
forward to a second hunt. Hamburger has


a permit for a gator hunt in Chiefland on
Sept. 22, and the two men who both
work at the Florida Rural Water Associa-
tion in Tallahassee will test their skills
again.
Phillips is planning to have the larger
gator stuffed and put up for auction-on
eBay, although he said he would be open
to any offers from local University of
Florida who might like their own lifesize
mascot.

FWC officers escort fuel trucks to keep Mississippi

hospital generators running after Hurricane Katrina


With blue lights flashing
and sirens blowing, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) law
enforcement officers got the
tanker truck through another
intersection with no working
lights in Biloxi, MS.
FWC officers Billy Giles,
from Perry, and Kevin Lar-
son, from Jacksonville, helped
Jimmy VanBoskerck, a tanker
driver with Starling Fuel Ser-
vice in Jacksonville, maneu-
ver through traffic to the Me-
morial Hospital in Biloxi.
"We're running fuel to the
hospital generators so they
can keep running. Their power
isn't back on yet," Giles said.
The two FWC officers had
escorted the tanker to Merid-
ian, MS that morning to pick
up a load of diesel and gaso-
line. When the truck arrived
at the hospital, Michael Zie-
man, hospital administrator,
was glad to see it.
"We were crossing our fin-
gers today," Zieman said. "We
were down to 100 gallons, so
we are happy to see you all.
The hospital generators bur


about 225 gallons an hour.
Thanks for coming to help.
We sure appreciate it."
The next stop was Singing
River Hospital in Pascagoula,
MS. Sonny Freeman, hospital
construction craftsman, was
on site when the tanker rolled
up. Freeman, who had lost his
house during Katrina, was liv-
ing at the hospital.
Although the hospital had
just been refueled by another
truck, Freeman thanked the
officers and driver for stop-
ping by to check on the hos-
pital's situation.
"It sure helps to know that
people are making sure we
stay up and running," Free-
man said. "We are running
our generators continuously
since the power keeps coming
on and off."
According to Lt. Jeff Hud-
son, patrol supervisor from
the Titusville Field Office, the
FWC escorts ensure that the
tanker truck gets to its desti-
nation and returns to the com-
mand post compound safely.
"Several FWC officers have
been 'chasing fuel' all over


Mississippi," Hudson said.
"We locate depots that have
fuel and then escort the tanker
truck to get a load. Then two
officers (one in front and one
in back of the truck) escort
the tanker to its destination
to make the fuel drops. Offi-
cers Kevin Hansen and Herb
Fererking have been escorting
the trucks to four area hospi-
tals to keep them powered up
and running," Hudson said.
"Officer Hansen found fuel
all over Mississippi. He's
traveled to the Meridian Na-
val Air Station, Camp Shelby
and several other depots. In
addition to the hospitals, FWC
has also delivered fuel to the
county maintenance building
in Purvis, MS, and an assisted
living facility that was within
two hours of running com-
pletely out of diesel for their
generators," Hudson said.
According to Dave Walker,
the "fuel boss" who works
for B-Line Carriers out of
Brooksville, Florida, "We're
providing support to every-
one who is headed out for
this operation. We had 100


vehicles from Indiana roll
in Monday. They were state
troopers, conservation offi-
cers and fire-and-rescue units.
We'made sure that they had
the fuel they needed to make
their destination.
"One of the trucks we have
here can pump from truck to
truck, from truck to tank, from
tank to tank or from ground to
truck. We also have a small
tank wagon with a 150-foot
hose. This is what we've been
using to refuel the 85-foot
FWC vessel 'JJ Brown,'"


Walker said as he gassed up
FWC vehicles for their rede-
ployment back to Florida.
The FWC contingent leav-
ing Tuesday was part of
the.first group of officers to
deploy to storm-ravaged Bi-
loxi Aug. 29.
"I hate to see these guys
Leavee' Walker said.
"I just about got them all
trained. But, I am appreciative
of all the support the FWC of-
ficers are providing to us. It
makes the job easier."
