Kids of all ages human as well as the four-legged kind will gather

music and plenty of early holiday shopping opportunities as vendors
from several states set up their wares. A young visitor from last year's
event is shown above, cuddling one of the festival's namesakes.

Rates go up as unpaid utility bills

keep mounting in Liberty County

Liberty County seems to be
losing in its effort to collect de-
linquent utility payments.
Customers throughout the
county currently owe $293,767.74
for garbage collection. Those ac-
counts that are 120 days or more
past due total $237,548.77.
While the water accounts are
not as numerous as the garbage,
residents now owe $15,336.10.
Of that total, $5,813.42 is 120
days or more past due.

A tracking of the two accounts
would indicate those who do not
pay their garbage bill and have
water provided by the county
also fail to pay their water bill.
A look at those delinquent water
accounts that owe more than $100
show the overwhelming majority
is also in the high delinquent cat-
egory on the garbage bill.
It appears that the largest un-
paid water bill is $263.58 while
the largest garbage bill appears to

Early morning DUI arrest
made on S.R. 20 in Bristol
A driver who' got a deputy's attention after she failed
to dim her bright lights early Friday morning ended up
with a DUI charge after the officer turned around and
saw her veer out of her lane twice.
After stopping the Ford Explorer at 1:30 a.m. Deputy
Chuck Barber saw the driver hand a bottle of wine toher
passenger, who then put it in the rear floorboard.
When Barber approached the driver, Sarah A. Blak-
eney, 50 of Panama City, he noticed the strong odor of
alcohol and asked if she had been drinking. She denied
that she had anything to drink but her passenger, identi-
fied as Eva Sharee Zaccaro, chided her, "Yes, you have.
Don't lie."
After unsuccessfully taking a roadside sobriety test,
Blakeney was transported to the county jail, where she
would not cooperate when the deputy asked her to take
a breath alcohol test. She was charged with felony DUI
and refusal to submit to testing.
During an inventory of the vehicle after the arrest, two
open bottles of wine and one open bottle of malt liquor
n ere found in the back floorboard.

be $2651.61.
To help meet costs created by
these two services, the county has
decided to increase the rates for
its 2,457 garbage customers and
1,007 water customers.
At the Sept. 29 special meet-
ing of the Liberty County Com-
mission, the board voted to raise
garbage rates from $12.50 a
month to $14 and hike up county
water rates from $10 a month to

Charles Raymond "Chuck" Smith among five

to be named to state Agriculture Hall of Fame

'. .f -

Charles Raymond "Chuck"
Smith one of the five named
this week for induction into
the Florida Agriculture Hall of
Fame has dedicated his very
productive and energetic life
to improving, promoting, and
protecting Florida agriculture.
Smith has served agriculture as
a passionate advocate in a va-
riety of capacities, as a county
extension agent, a farm manag-
er, and a legislator. In each posi-
tion he has worked diligently to.
effect positive change.
Smith was born in 1928 in
Webster, Florida. Like many
young men of the 1940s, he
entered military service shortly
after high school, enlisting in
the Air Force. When his tour of
duty was complete, he enrolled
in the University of Florida,
where he earned a bachelor's
degree in agriculture in 1953.
That same year, he accepted a
job as an assistant county exten-
sion agent in Citrus County.
He was promoted to county
agent a year later, working in
Hernando County before tak-
ing that position in Liberty
County from 1955 to 1959. As
an agent, he spent many hours
helping rural people as they
struggled to combat hog chol-
era and improve their swine
herds. He was not afraid to get
his hands dirty as he worked to
assist his neighbors.
Smith was elected to the
Hernando County Commission
in 1966 and served 12 years. In
1967 he became general man-
ager of the Hernando Egg Co-
operative. He spent years help-
ing to promote the use and sale
of broilers and eggs.
In 1978 he was elected to
the Florida House of Repre-
sentatives, where he served un-

back into the eastbound lane. He
then traveled off the side of the
road and almost hit the bridge
just east of the Southern Express,

When asked if he had been
drinking, Mosley acknowledged
he had consumed "a couple of
beers," the report stated.
During a roadside sobriety test;
Mosley had to hold onto the side
of his car to keep from falling in
the road.
When told he was under arrest
for DUI, Mosley stuck his hands
in his pockets. Dalton asked him
to take his hands out and when he
did, a clear plastic bag fell out of
his right front pants pocket to the
ground. The bag contained an

to Dalton's report.
Mosley then told the deputy
that he could not go to jail because
he was under house arrest. When
Dalton attempted to handcuff
Mosley, Mosley pulled away.
As the deputy opened the door
to put him in the back of the patrol
car, Mosley began cursing, said,
"I ain't going to jail," and tried
to run across the road. Dalton,
with the assistance of Deputy
Jared Nichols, overpowered the
struggling man and put him in the
patrol car.
SDuring the altercation, Mosley
damaged the front panel of the
patrol car with a kick.
Mosley was charged with DUI,
possession of less than 20 grams
of marijuana, resisting arrest

Smith served as a county agent
in Liberty County from 1955 to
til 1992. During his legislative
tenure, he made it his mission
to protect agriculture and the
natural resources on which the
industry depends. He helped
create the Market Improvement
Working Capital Trust Fund, to
be used for the operation and
maintenance of agricultural fa-
cilities. He also assisted in the
creation of the Surface Water.
Improvement and Management
program, which addresses wa-
ter quality issues and works
to rehabilitate degraded water
bodies. He wrote the first bill
on Everglades restoration and
helped draft legislation to pro-
vide excise tax exemption for
fuels used in certain agricultural
"I helped and opposed Chuck
Smith on many issues," said
former House member Everett
Kelly, "but there was never any
doubt that if you attacked agri-
culture he would be your worst
enemy. He worked tirelessly in
all parts of the legislative pro-
cess to protect and promote ag-
riculture and would take on the
highest or the lowest state or
national government official in
defense of agriculture."

Smith's dedicated service to
the industry has won him many
awards and honors. In 1961 he
was presented with an Outstand-
ing Achievement Award by the
Hernando County Chamber of
Commerce. In 1989 he received
a Ten-Year Service Award from
the Florida Poultry Federation.
That same year, he was named
Legislator of the Year by the
Flqrida Farm Bureau. In 1995
he received the Agriculture Vol-
unteer of the Year Award from
the Hillsborough County Coop-
erative Extension Service.
Smith is a founding member
of the Florida Agricultural Co-
alition and a past president of
the Florida Federation of Fairs
and Livestock Shows and the
Florida Poultry Federation. He
is currently serving as executive
vice president of the .Florida
Poultry Federation and direc-
tor of the Florida Agricultural
Hall of Fame Foundation. He is
involved in the activities of the
State Poultry Executives Asso-
ciation and the American Egg
Smith lives in Brooksville
with his wife, Mildred. They
have three grown children --

"Florida agriculture owes
an immense debt of gratitude
to these outstanding leaders,"
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson said
Tuesday during the announce-
ment of those to be inducted.

areas of research, education,
business and government helped

Interesting woman this Harriet Miers. She used to be
a Democrat, and then she found God and became
a Republican. Which is kind of backwards, because
usually in Washington you become a Republican, get
indicted, go to jail, then you find God. JAY LENO

President Bush has pledged to grant millions of
dollars in tax breaks to national casino companies
rushing to rebuild casinos along the Gulf Coast,
giving residents who haven't already lost their house
a chance to do so.
LEWIS BLACK, Daily.Show commentator

Al Gore gave a fiery speech claiming that American
democracy was in grave danger ... and then his wife
said "Al, just pay the pizza guy and let's eat."

Big news this morning at the White House, President
Bush defended his nominee, Harriet Miers, calling
her 'plenty bright.' Yeah, not only that, but then the
president said Miers has 'real purdy hair.' Then he
got on a mule and headed south. CONAN O'BRIEN

A lot of conservative- Republicans say they are very
upset about President Bush's choice of Harriet Miers.
They say she has no experience, she doesn't know
anything about constitutional law, and she's never
shown any interest in it. Where were these people,
with the high standards when they nominated Bush
to be president? JAY LENO

'President Bush is out defending his Supreme Court
nominee. Bush said Harriet Miers has a good heart.
Well, yeah, compared to Dick Cheney. JAY LENO.

it, a reality show. Or, as Republicans call it, 'Fear

First Lady Laura Bush will appear on an
upcoming episode of 'Extreme Makeover.' Tom
DeLay will be on 'Cops.' JAY LENO

Records show Harriet Miers gave money toAl Gore's
campaign, and she also called President Bush the
most brilliant man she ever met. And this is the
woman we're hiring for her judgment?

We're learning more and more about Tom Delay....
He was nicknamed, 'Hot Tub Tom,' got kicked out of

Intolerant patient gives others

an earful at physical therapy

Twas lying on my back, right /S
alarm in the air, holding a three- CORNER
pound weight and attempting to Jerry Cox is a retired military officer
follow the physical therapist's direc- and writer with an extensive back-
tions to rotate my arm clockwise for ground in domestic and foreign policy
two minutes. As I have learned over issues. He lives in Shalimar, Fla.
isus He lie nSa>aFa

the past ten weeks, recovering from
rotator cuff surgery isn't for sissies.
The physical therapy room is an open area without
privacy. There are no private rooms and no curtains.
We are one happy family of cripples getting our arms
and legs yanked, pulled, exercised and massaged in a
communal area.
While Iwas sweating through my exercise routine, a
woman enters the room with a flourish, telling all how
she fell down and broke a finger. From the comments
of the physical therapist, this was not the-first time that
she had fallen and broken some part of her body.
She took the table next to me, and proceeded to
tell everyone that she had just finished reading a book
written by Reverend Billy Graham's wife, a great in-
spiration to this woman with the broken finger.
Another, person remarked about Graham's last big
television event and that President Bill Clinton and
Ms. Clinton-were there.
The broken-finger woman responded that she hated
Ms. Clinton, and referring to Clinton's affair with
the White House intern, she said that if she were Ms.
Clinton, she would have divorced Clinton and taken
him for everything that he

The woman now had an
audience and she was on
a roll, continuing with the
comment that she hated
Ms. Clinton's clothes. An-
other woman countered
with the comment that she
thought Ms. Clinton was
well dressed. The broken-
finger woman countered
that with another harsh
remark about Ms. Clinton's
Another woman com-
mented that Ms. Clinton

would probably run for president
in 2008. The broken-finger woman
said that she would vote for Sponge
Bob Square Pants before she would
vote for Hillary Clinton. However,
she would vote for Senator Eliza-

/ beth Dole in a heartbeat. One of the
physical therapists' said that she thought Ms. Dole was
too old to be president. The woman countered that she
would never vote for Hillary Clinton.
With political issues somewhat resolved, the broken-
finger woman turned to the Clinton's daughter, stating
that she was ugly as a pumpkin.
Throughout this exchange of views, there were
many references by the broken-finger \\ oman to "her
church." I'm not sure that God, or her minister would
ha e approved of her comments. There was nothing,
Christian about thi- conversation.
This-ten-minute conversation is symptomatic of
America at large. People hate other people. Hating
people they don't know. Hating people because they
have different opinions. Hating people because they
have different political views. Hating people because
they have different religious views. Hating people be-
cause they don't like their looks, their features. Hating
people because of the color of their skin.
SWhy? Hate is such a strong word. As I listened to
this conversation, I was reminded of people's intoler-
ance for their fellow man.

Junior Lolley should be

honored with a holiday!
To the editor:
This is about an outstanding citizen of Liberty County that
most likely doesn't get the recognition he deserves. A great many
people have scanners and get the news as it happens, but they
.sometimes don't put a face with the voice. He gives direction to
emergency personnel to save lives, information to county fire-
fighters to lead them to remote places sometimes using landmarks
such as where some other person lives. Law enforcement agen-
cies depend on his keen knowledge to track down law breakers.
While most of us have our full array of senses that Mother Nature
gives us, Junior Lollie is blind, but he can see things more clearly
sometimes than the rest of us.
Next month will be Thanksgiving. While you're remembering
things to be thankful for, don't forget those who keep you safe
- especially, Junior Lollie for what he does for the community.
Of course you don't have to wait for a holiday. I propose that
there be a Junior Day in Liberty County to recognize all that Ju-
nior has done. Make it a celebration with a cookout in his honor.
Mike Bailes, Altha

Text: Ephesians 6:10-18
M.R. de Haan II says there are ants
that "have a passion for the sweet,
glandular substance given off by the
caterpillar of a large butterfly." Ants
like it so much they can be "addicted."
The ants hunt the caterpillar and
bring it home to their nest. The ants be-
gin feeding on the "secretions" of their
prey. Then the caterpillar stuffs himself
eating ant larva. The ants are so busy
eating "the tasty secretions...they are
oblivious of the fact that their young
are being devoured in the process."
So it is with sin. Satan makes sin
look very attractive. We yield to temp-
tation to enjoy the temporary pleasures
of sin. We fail to realize that what we
enjoy in the moment is the very thing
that will utterly destroy us in the end.
Sin is not something to play around
with. It is a captive. It binds. It de-
stroys. Believe it or not, you are locked
ihto a battle for your soul. You may not
even believe in the devil. Nevertheless,
the reality is that there is a spiritual be-
ing who is the opposite equivalent to
Michael, the archangel. This powerful
being, the devil, is out to destroy you
because you were made in God's im-
Satan is very subtle: All the while
you are focusing on the pleasure of the
moment, he is reeking havoc in the rest
of your life. Too late, you realize it was
all a mistake.
If that has already happened to you,
you can still receive love and forgive-
ness from an awesome God. Confess
your sins, believe in Christ, and for-
giveness is yours.
You can overcome the devil and
his temptations. Trust in and rely upon
the power of the Lord to deliver you.
The devil cannot make any believer in
Christ do anything. Put on the whole
armor of God. Fight.

game birds in Florida are required
to have a no-cost migratory bird
permit either checked or attached
to their Florida hunting license.
In order to receive this permit,
hunters have to fill out a short

questionnaire when they purchase
their hunting license. The infor-
mation they provide helps the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service get
a better assessment on how many
birds are harvested each year.
The FWC suggests hunters pe-
ruse the "2005-06 Florida Hunt-
ing Regulations Handbook" and
the "2005-06 Migratory Game
Bird Regulations for Waterfowl
and Coot Seasons" brochure at

made Monday morning
A Blountstown man was arrested for sexual battery after he
allegedly forced himself on a woman at her home early Monday
'A report from the Blountstown Police Department gave the fol-
lowing account:
The victim was getting dressed to go to work when Jamie Dawson,
30, came to her door.
She said she yelled -just a minute" when he knocked. He opened
the door, went in the house and pushed the woman on to her couch
and began to have sex with her.
The victim said she tried to push him away and told him "no,"
but he continued. She said that when he finally stopped, he told her,
"thanks," and left.
The woman was taken to the emergency room to be examined.
Dawson was taken into custody by the Blountstown Police De-
partment and booked into the county jail, where he is being held
without bond.

Early morning DUI arrest

made on S.R. 20 in Bristol
A driver who got a deputy's attention after she failed to dim her-
bright lights early Friday morning ended up with a DUI charge after
-the officer turned around and saw her veer out of her lane twice.
After stopping the Ford Explorer at 1:30 a.m. Deputy Chuck Barber
saw the driver hand a bottle of wine to her passenger, who then put
it in the rear floorboard.
When Barber approached the driver, Sarah A. Blakeney, ,50 of
Panama City, he noticed the strong odor of alcohol and asked if she
had been drinking. She denied that she had anything to drink but her
passenger, identified as Eva Sharee Zaccaro, chided her, "Yes, you
have. Don't lie."
After unsuccessfully taking a roadside sobriety test. B lakeney \ as
transported to the county jail, where she would not cooperate when
the deputy asked her to take a breath alcohol test.. She was charged
with felony DUI and refusal to submit to testing.
During an inventory of the vehicle after the arrest, two open bottles
of wine and one open bottle of malt liquor were found in the back
floorboard. ... .... '

The states and Canadian

"To date, no cases. of CWD
a\e been found in Florida, and

we want to keep it that way,"'
said Deer Program coordinator
Robert Vanderhoof of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Division of Hunt-
ing and Game Management.
"Hunters can help by observing
the restrictions placed on bring-
ing carcasses in from other areas
where CWD is a concern."
CWD, first identified in Col-.
orado in 1967, is a disease that
affects the central nervous sys-
tem and is related to "mad cow"
disease in cattle and scrapie in
sheep. The disease always proves
fatal to the infected animal, but
there are no known cases of it
being transmitted to people, do-
mestic animals or livestock.
Hunters still can bring back
de-boned meat from any CWD-
affected region, as well as fin-
ished taxideriiy mounts, hides,

skulls, antlers and teeth as long
as. all soft tissue has been re-
Whole, bone-in carcasses and
parts are permitted to be brought
back to Florida if they were har-

"Officers will be on the look-
out for violations of the rules on
importation of animal carcasses
into the state," said Julie Jones,
chief of FWC's Division of Law
"Our first priority is: to edu-
cate hunters about this issue, and
we will investigate all situations
involving CWD and take ap-
propriate enforcement action."

FWC seeks partners to help develop youth hunting program

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) is seeking part-
ners to help launch its new Youth Hunting
The program aims to provide quality
hunting experiences for 12- to 17-year-olds
to increase the number of youths involved
in hunting.
The FWC is looking for landowners
and/or hunting clubs to host weekend
youth hunts; volunteers to be trained as
huntmasters, hunter safety instructors,
cooks or guides; and organizations to help
sponsor this new program.
Because the number of hunters in Flori-
da has declined during the past decade, the

FWC is looking to establish relationships
with other concerned conservation orga-
nizations to use this program as a tool to
recruit and train tomorrow's safe hunters.
The Shikar Safari Club already has part-
nered with the FWC and is providing the
funding for initial start-up costs, but the
program is going to require substantially
more assistance if it is to be successful.
While introducing Florida's youth to
the hunting tradition, the Youth Hunting
Program can benefit landowners by assist-
ing them with their wildlife management
practices by helping them reduce does,
hogs and other species the biologists want
to manage on their properly.

All the landowners or hunting clubs
need to do is provide access to their land,
and the FWC will do the rest.
"We promise to run safe, positive,
educational and mentored youth hunts
and are looking for all types of year-round
hunting opportunities including deer, tur-
key, hogs, exotics, dove, small game and
waterfowl," said Alan Busenbark, FWC's
hunter safety business manager.
"The goal for the first year of the
program is to train- at least 25 volunteers
throughout the state to be huntmasters to
lead future youth-training hunts. Along
with enlisting these volunteers, another
goal is to establish landowner relation-

ships and secure additional funding to
ensure the future growth of the program,"
Busenbark said.
If you are a landowner or hunting
club wishing to donate a weekend youth
hunt on your property, an individual who
can volunteer your time and expertise in
planning and leading youth hunts or an
organization who can help sponsor this
unique program, contact Alan Busenbark
at (850) 413-0084 or by e-mail at alan.
For more information on how to get
involved in Florida's Youth Hunting Pro-
gram, visit MNyFWC.com/huntersafety.

$6 million grant supports UF genetic research on loblolly pine

aid of a $6 million grant from
the National Science Foun-
dation, University of Florida
researchers are working with
scientists at the University of
California, Davis; North Caro-
lina State University; and Texas
A&M University to identify.:
genes that regulate wood prop-,
erties and disease-resistance
traits in loblolly pine.
The research to be conduct-
ed by faculty in UF's new Ge-v
netics Institute will benefit the
$200 billion forest industry in
13 Southern states where lob-
lolly pine is the most-planted"
species for commercial timber.
Southern pines cover just six
percent of U.S. forestland, but
account for 58 percent of the
nation's total wood production.
In Florida, forestry is a $16 bil-
lion industry, the state's largest
agricultural commodity.
"By aggressively seeking to
identify all of the major genes
controlling specific wood prop-
erties and disease-resistance
traits in loblolly pine, we antic-
ipate a significant breakthrough
in our understanding of a pine
species that is the highest-val-
ued crop in nine of 13 South-,
ern states." said Gary Peter,
an associate professor of plant
genomics in ITF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences
who is leading the UF research
effort to identify o2enes control-
ling \wood properties.
"Wood is also a renewable
energy source, and increasing
product ity through genetics
could help reduce our nation's
dependence on non-renewable
energy," he said.
The NSF Plant Genome
Research Program grant was
made to UF's School of Forest
Resources and Conservation
because of the school's long
history of cooperating with the
forestry industry, particularly
in interdisciplinary genetic re-
search to identify mechanisms

that control productivity and
health of planted pines, Peter
John Davis, an associate
professor of forest biotechnol-
ogy who is leading the UF ef-
fort to identify genes control-
ling disease resistance, said the
research findings will reveal
genetic mechanisms that help
explain the long evolutionary
success of pine trees.
He said the research will gen-
erate an unprecedented glimpse
of the genes that affect interac-
tions among pine trees, fungi
and other natural components
of forest systems. The new in-
sights are expectedlto enhance
gene conservation efforts and
society's ability to cope with
challenges such as evolving
pest populations.
-Dudley Huber, an associate
in forest genetics and co-direc-
tor of the UF pine breeding co-
operatve. said understanding
how different genes affect the
health and viability of trees in

WASHINGTON, DC U.S. Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL) an-
nounced a statewide selection committee to recommend current and
recently graduated high school students as potential nominees to the
Naval, Air Force, United States Military, and Merchant Marine acad-
"These panelists have the distinct honor of choosing tomorrow's
military leaders," said Senator Martinez. "Admission to one of the
military academies is a coveted and remarkable opportunity for a
young person to earn an outstanding education and serve our coun-
try. Some of our best and brightest young people compete for the
honor to serve their country through attendance at one of the acad-
emies. I look forward to the panel's recommendations."
Applicants are interviewed and scored on their academic accom-
plishments,.athletic talent, and moral character.
Prospective students will be initially interviewed by regional
board members of the selection committee in their corresponding
region. The regional board interviews will take place on Nov. 7, after
which their recommendations are forwarded to the statewide board.

the UF Genetics Institute, said
the NSF grant represents an
important stride for the genet-
ics program.
"The Genetics Institute
unites researchers from UF's
Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences with faculty
from the colleges of medicine.

and sciences." he said. "This
kind of study requires expertise
in population genetics and bio-

informatics two of the main
areas pegged for development
in the UF Genetics Institute's
strategic plan.
."Bioinformatics is necessary
in the loblolly pine research
to analyze gene sequences,"
Berns said. "Then, population

to understand how evolutionary
forces have influenced the gene

In addition to the valuable
applied benefits of this multi-
disciplinary research, the lob-
lolly pine project is expected to
provide significant insight into
an important frontier in fun-

Tigers beat Berkley Prep 14-7 despite

a night filled with fumbles and penalties

by Teresa Eubanks,
Journal Editor
1 he Blountstown Ti-
gers faced more of a
challengee getting to last
week's game than they did
playing it before securing
a 14-7 win over Tampa
Berkley Prep Oct. 8.
The team's bus left at
6:30 a.m Friday to make
the long drive toTampa;,
which included plans for
a stop to practice in Lake
Cit\ and a second stop for
Traveling along with
the team's chartered bus
was a second bus filled
with Tiger fans.
A diesel leak put the
team's bus out of com-
mission as they entered
Lake City. After taking
the scheduled practice
there, the team had to
leave that bus behind and
move onto the fan bus to
finish their trip. The fans
waited behind until the
charter company could
send a second bus. The
Tigers, who had just had
a hot x\ orkout. discovered
their second bus had a
problem of its own no
air conditioning. "It was
miserably hot," said Tiger
Coach Bobby Johns. The
delay pushed them behind
schedule, leaving only 30
minutes for a rushed meal
later that afternoon.
When they finally ar-
rived at the school, "We
couldn't find anyone to
let is in the locker room."
Johls said. "Everything
that could have gone
wrong went wrong. It
was about as aggravating
a deal as I've ever been
Despite the rough trip,
the Tigers took to the field
to face a team with three
defensive linemen each
ovef300 pounds and went
on to give them their first
regular-season home field
loss in three years.
But the night was

plagued with problems
for the visiting Tigers,
who had five fumbles and
11 penalties. "We felt
as long as we could stop
turning the ball over, we'd
be all right, but we kept
shooting ourselves in the
foot," Johns said.
"It's hard to get a win
out of-a situation like
that," he said. "Our goal
is to win district and have
a chance for the state
championship. If we cor-
rect the little things, we
can get right back where
we need to be."
The Tigers had four

times the fans that their
host team had in the
stands. Some, however,
were little too enthu-
siastic and at one point
referees threatened to
penalize the Tigers if their
fans didn't calm down.
"The officials didn't deal
with that very well," said
Johns, who added that he
had "no criticism" of the
fans' actions. "They were
trying to cheer us on."
All of the night's scor-
ing took place in the first
T.C. Copeland scored

for the Tigers on a 75-yard
run in the .first quarter.
The extra-point kick at-
tempt was blocked,Ieav-
ing the score at 6-0.
With 2:10 left in the
quarter, Tampa scored
on a 25-yard screen pass.
The kick was good and
the Tampa Buccaneers
led 7-6.
Arsenio Ivory ran in
a 64-yard touchdown to
give the lead back to the
Tigers with 10:43 left in
the second quarter. A two-
point pass from Michael
Guilford to Greg Meeks

pushed the Tigers lead
up to 14-7 in what would
become the final scoring
action of the night.
"They played.decent:
we didn't do what we
could have," Johns said,
noting his team's 11 pen-
alties for over 100 yards,

first play of the game.
"We had 424 yards of-
fense and just couldn't put
the ball in the end zone,"
he said. "We kept making
Blountstown averaged

nine yards a play with 47
plays. They held Tampa,
which is predominately a
running team, to 50 yards
rushing. "They had 120
yards passing on screen
passes," Johns'noted.
While he admits "we
didn't do a very good
job of overcoming the
circumstances," Johns
said his team played "ex-
tremely hard."
Arsenio Ivory had 105
yards and one touchdown,
followed by T.C. Cope-
land with 92 yards and

had 59 yards and Michael
Guilford had 50 and threw
for 86. "John Lockhart
had 53 of those yards

down the sidelines," Johns
The Tigers will

Homecoming Oct. 14.
Despite the fact that their
next opponent is a first-
year varsity team with
no seniors, Johns says,
"We've got to play better
and we've got to take care
of business."

Among the responsibilities of the Florida Public Service
Commission is the assurance of reliable, affordable
electricity from investor-owned utilities to the state's
consumers. In times of skyrocketing oil and natural
gas prices, reaching consensus on a definition of the
term "affordable" may be a difficult task. On the other
hand, most consumers have a clear idea of what
reliability means: When they flip a switch and the lights
go on, service is reliable.

Absolute reliability is an elusive goal This is especially
true of a system that encompasses more than 130,000
miles of transmission and distribution lines delivering
service to more than six million consumers However,
the Public Service Commission has strict accountability
standards for reliability for the state's five investor-
owned electric utilities

To insure these accountability standards are met, the
Commission's staff routinely compiles data on the
number of interruptions and the causes of outages.
In addition, audits of utilities are conducted to determine
how much companies spend to avoid service
interruptions and to identify what additional steps can
be taken, when necessary, to prevent further outages.

To understand the methods used by the Commission
to measure electric reliability requires a brief
introduction to the alphabet soup.

MAIFle: Momentary Average Interruption Event
Frequency Index
What it means: This is a measure of the total number
of momentary interruptions relative to the total number
of customers served. A momentary interruption is a
service disruption lasting less than one minute and is
usually far less. like a fraction of a second. These are
the interruptions that cause consumers to have to reset
their digital clocks, but have little or no lasting effects.

CAIDI: CustomerAverage Interruption Duration Index
What it means: A measure of the average length of
interruptions experienced by a company's individual

SAIDI: System Average Interruption Duration Index
What it means: A measure of the average length of
interruptions for all the customers served by a company.
In other words, when power is lost, what is the average
length of time it stays off?

SAIFI: System Average Interruption Frequency Index
What it means: A way of measuring the average
frequency of interruptions to the customer, or, put
another way, how often, on average, is power lost?

It is probably important to note that catastrophic events,
such as hurricanes, are not included in the indices
noted above. In the case of a documented

meteorological event that adversely affects the
generation of electricity or its transmission to
consumers, a utility can petition the Commission to
have specific weather-related outages excluded, but
there is no guarantee of an outcome favorable decision
from the Commission.

So now the jargon used in measuring reliability has
been explained, what is the value of these standards
in assessing an electric utility s performance? Using
these reliability indicators in combination with audits
and field assessments by Commission staff can point
to specific areas where more attention by the utility
may be necessary to improve reliability

Causes of outages can be identified on a systemic
basis and improvement plans can be developed. A
common finding, for example, is that a lack of
"vegetation management" (commonly referred to as
tree trimming is responsible for outages along specific
circuits. There may be a numberof reasons why foliage
has grown too close to power lines and the fix is
relatively simple

The extent to which a company routinely inspects utility
poles to determine which are most susceptible to
deterioration and collapse (another cause for
interruptions) can be discerned from evaluating
reliability indices, as may the need to enhance lightning
protection measures.

Other reasons for interruptionss may be more difficult
to diagnose, such as the animals on poles or along
wires, resulting in shorts and the ensuing interruptions.

Whatever the reason for an interruption or a series of
interruptions, the diagnostic tools exist to assist the
Commission in getting td the root causes of outages.
Once the.cause is identified, the Commission can work
with the service provider to develop a plan to restore,
the reliable flow of electricity to customers.

Consumers with questions about the reliability of
electric service provided by an investor-owned utility
can contact the Public Service Commission for
answers. The consumer assistance line is 1-800-342-
3552. Assistance is also available via e-mail at
contact@psc.state.fl.us or through the Commission's
websile at www.floridapsc corn

Braulio L. Baez is the Chairman of the Florida
Public Service Commission. The PSC.sets the
rates regulated utility companies charge for
natural gas, electric and telephone service
within the state. In 36 counties, it sets the price
you pay for the water you drink, if your water
company is privately owned.

Hospice staff members recently
assisted the Chipola Area Board
of Realtors in collecting a car-
load of soft-sided suitcases for
foster children. The "Suitcases
for Kids" program is. a nation-
wide effort to give foster chil-
dren a special suitcase to carry
their belongings in since they
often have to move on weekly
or even daily basis. Many of
the children have nothing but
a plastic bag in which to carry
their possessions.
According to a press release
from the Florida Association of
Realtors, realtors across Florida
collected more than 2,000 new

Gallagher, Florida's chief fi-
nancial officer, cautioned
Florida's consumers and auto
dealers to beware of buying
used vehicles that may have
originated from areas flooded
by Hurricane Katrina, and po-
tentially Hurricane Rita. Of-
ficials estimate that 350,000
vehicles were flooded in New
Orleans alone from Hurricane
Katrina, and up to 500,000
vehicles could have sustained
flood damage throughout Lou-
isiana, Mississippi and Ala-
bama from this storm. Many
of these vehicles are shipped to
other states, including Florida,
through car wholesalers.,
"While most states, like
Florida, require vehicle titles
to bear brands of 'flood ve-
hicle' and 'salvage/rebuilt,'
some wholesalers may inten-
tionally transfer titles to avoid
branding since it diminishes a
vehicle's value," said Galla-
gher. "The unsuspecting con-
sumer doesn't know whether

Ornamental vegetables add color to the winter landscape

Vegetable gardens are famil-
iar to all of us, even if we do not
grow vegetables for our own
use. But, did you know that there
are many vegetables that are at-
tractive and colorful enough to
use as winter annuals? Incorpo-
rating vegetables into the land-
scape or using them as decora-
tive container plants for porches
and patios is a great way to add
color and interest to our winter
Many vegetables have orna-
mental, as well as food value. In
fact, when tomatoes were first
introduced to Europe, they were
believed to be poisonous and
were used only as ornamentals.
Using vegetables as ornamentals
is not a new idea. Potagers, or
decorative kitchen gardens, were
a part of the elaborate gardens at
Versailles during the 1600's.
Ornamental cabbage is prob-
ably the most popular and
widely used of the ornamental
vegetables. But there are many

His research has shown that
ay, many cultivars of kale, mustard
ural and Swiss chard are worthy of a
countyy place in our home landscapes.
According to Dr. Gibson,
kale cultivars should be planted
in late fall for winter and early
spring interest. Forage kales
-. < were originally used as a source
.' of fodder for cattle. 'Lacinato',
'Red Bor', and 'Red Russian'
S are three of the varieties used by
botanical gardens today as orna-
Smentals. 'Lacinato' grows to a
height of two feet and has thick
and crinkled dark blue-green
rs highly
she land- foliage. 'Red Bor' achieves a
the land-
ygreens height of three feet and possesses
dark purple ruffled leaves, 'Red
Russian' is an interesting variety
that will that grows to three feet. As the
'ea. Dr. cooler weather sets in, its foliage
tProfes- changes from a blue-green to a
t Florida purple-red color.
Center, Mustard cultivars should be
n evalu- planted in early fall for best re-
able cul- suits. 'Red Giant' mustard, one
Florida. of the more popular ornamen-
tal vegetables, haslarge bronze
colored leaves with bright white
midribs. Other mustards that.
have performed well include
'Early Mizuna', 'Komatsuna',
'Misome' and 'Miike Giant'.
Another ornamental vegetable
that performs well in Northwest
Florida is the Swiss chard culti-
var 'Bright Lights', a 1998 All-
American Selections Winner.
This variety is a favorite because
of its multiple colored stems and
crumpled foliage.
As with many vegetables,
these ornamentals can be started
by seed. Seeds should be started
approximately six to eight weeks
prior to setting them out in the
In the landscape, choose a
planting site carefully. These
plants enjoy full sun. Due
to their robust foliage, plants
should be adequately spaced in
order to allow for good airflow
to minimize disease problems.
Space plants approximately 18
to 24 inches apart.
In general, ornamental veg-
etables are not tolerant of water
stress. Allowing the plant to dry
out can cause the leaves to turn
yellow and drop off. Be careful
with the fertilization also. Ex-
cessive fertilization will prevent
good color formation. However,
not enough fertilizer will result
in yellowing or defoliation.
Tip of the Week. To get a pot-
ted holiday cactus or poinsettia
to bloom for Christmas be sure
it is not getting light at night.
Starting approximately October
1st, put the plants in a dark area
that receives no light from 5 p.m.
to 8 a.m. Keep putting it in the
dark at night for one month for
the cactus, six to eight weeks for
the poinsettia. Place the plant in
its normal growing area during
the day so that it gets sufficient

MDA offers

flu shots
done for several years, the Mus-
cular Dystrophy Association will
this year again provide free flu
shots to people with any of the
more then 40 neuromuscular dis-
eases in the Association's pro-
Influenza is much riskier for
anyone who has a progressive
neuromuscular disease that dam-
ages the muscles responsible for
lung function. It's particularly
dangerous for those with Duch-
enne Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal
Muscular Atrophy, Amyotrophic
Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's
disease) and other neuromuscu-
lar diseases.
"Respiratory infections caused
by a flu virus can become very
dangerous for children and adults
with neuromuscular diseases
whose respiratory function is
already weakened, "MDA Presi-
dent and CEO Robert Ross said.
"For this reason, MDA provides
those we serve with free flu shots
to reduce their chances of getting
a potentially serious illness."
MDA provides thousands of
free flu shots annually, thanks
to funds raised during the Jerry
Lewis MDA Telethon, broadcast
locally on Labor Day weekend
on WCTV Channel 6 and WMBB
Channel 13, and other events
held year-round. MDA has two
clinics in Northwest Florida and
Southwest Georgia, including
the Tallahassee Neurological
Clinic in Tallahassee, FL and the
HealthShuth Rehabilitation Hos-
pital clinic in Panama City, FL.
For more information about
obtaining a free flu shot for some-
one with neuromuscular disease,
please call the MDA office in
Tallahassee at (850) 681-6763 or
visit www.mdausa.org.
MDA is a voluntary health
agency providing services, re-
search, and professional and
public health education. The As-
sociation's programs are funded

National Fire Prevention Week Oct. 9-15

Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson announced that
October 9-15 is National Fire
Prevention Week and remind-
ed Floridians that everyone
can help prevent fires in our
forests and wildlands.
"While several wet months
have temporarily lessened the
wildfire danger in some por-
tions of our state, a few weeks
of dry weather can quickly
increase the wildfire danger,"
Bronson said.
So far this year, the Florida
Division of Forestry has re-
sponded to 1,469 wildfires on
23,763 acres and saved. 783
homes and other structures in
the process. National Fire Pre-
vention Week is a time for Flo-
ridians to reflect on fire safety
both inside and outside the
"We want people to under-
stand that conditions exist-
ing around their homes could
bring a wildfire to their door-
step," Bronson said. "Many
Florida homes are in danger
because in our desire to live
close to nature, we have cre-
ated a residential landscape of
highly flammable plants and
As an alternative, the Divi-
sion of Forestry recommends a
"Firewise"' home.
"A Firewise home is a safer
home," Bronson said. "It has
a defensible space around the
home that is carefully land-
scaped with plants known
to be less flammable, a roof
constructed with fire resistant
Class-A asphalt shingles, tile
or metal roofing, spark arres-
tors in all chimneys, and raised
decking or porches that are
screened underneath to keep
out hot embers or fire brands
from a wildfire."
Additional steps that home-
owners can take to protect their
homes from wildfire include:
*Keep the roof cleared of
flammable debris like pine
stra\\, dead leaves and sticks.
*Keep road shoulders
cleared from overhanging veg-
etation, allowing access for
larger emergency vehicles.
*Landscape within the
home's zone of defensible

space with widely spaced trees
(at least 15 feet apart) and
prune lower limbs of trees near

*Be sure that the home ad-
