Jackson re-elected Tuesday night with 90 votes
election held the
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
In jn age of optical scanners and instant Web-posted election
results. Tuesday's race for the Ward 1 seat on the Blountsto\\ n City
CounL il was remarkably low-tech as voters cast hand-marked paper
ballots into a double-locked wooden box stationed at the librarN
Cost v as the reason, said Calhoun County Elections Superx isor
Margie Laramore. Going with the old-fashioned method for the
single-race election saved about $1,300, she said.
The Help American Vote Act, designed to make the polls ac-
cessible to all, went into effect this past July and requires special
accommodations to allow disabled voters to cast ballots on their
own, Laramore explains. This means that in addition to the optical
scanners now commonly used, new touch screens would also have
to be set up. To do both in such a small election such as Tuesday's
in which only 1,577 people were eligible to vote would be ex pen-
sive. Just the charge for programming the two voting machines
alone would be $1,000, Laramore said. "It increased the cost of
the election, so much the city opted to use paper ballots and hand
count them," she said.
Laramore issued paper ballots at the sole polling center in the
library and the city had a special wooden box built to house the
ballots. The box was secured by two locks. Laramore had the
key to one lock; the other was held by Blountstown City Manager
After the 7 p.m. deadline to vote, Laramore was joined by
Calhoun County Clerk of Court Ruth Attaway and County Judge
Kevin Grover, who hand counted the ballots.
Incumbent Clifford Jackson won the three-man race to er\ e
another term on the city council with 90 votes. Coming in second
was Phillip Hill with 51 ballots, followed by Ronnie Williams in
third place with 25 votes. A total of 166 votes %\ ere
received. including fihe absentees.

Cairo, GA was rushed to Jackson
Hospital with numerous injuries
following the Nov. 1 accident
in which the driver of another
.vehicle was killed on impact, ac-
cording to Sgt. Lonnie Baker of
the Florida Highway Patrol.
The 2 p.m. fatal wreck hap-
pened approximately five miles
west of Clarksville during a
heavy rain when an eastbound
car, driven by Beverly Ward
Bryant, 43, of Tallahassee, col-
lided with a westbound pickup
driven by Majors. Majors' 1999
Ford pickup overturned and she
was critically injured.
The FHP has not released a
report pending the completion
of the investigation.
Officers are still'talking with
out-of-town witnesses who were
traveling behind the pickup to
find out more about the collision,
according to Baker.
Baker said it appeared that

center line of the road into the

Man charged with
driving teens out of
state & having sex
with 15-year-old girl
A Calhoun County man is facing one charge of a
lewd and lascivious act and two counts of interfering
with custody after he gave two teenage girls a ride
out of state without their parents' knowledge.
Arrested was 20-year-old Jon Charles Pippin,
who later admitted to investigators that he had sex
with one of the girls, who is only 15.
The grandmother of one of the girls realized she
wasn't home the morning of Nov. 3 and reported her
missing to investigators at the sheriff's department.
One of the parents of the other girl also called depu-'
ties to file a missing persons report.
Realizing that the two girls were probably
together, relatives put together a list of names of
friends who might have some knowledge of their
whereabouts. It was believed that Pippin had picked
up one of the girls from school on Nov. 2.
When contacted at his home, Pippin denied
knowing anything about the missing girls. Deputies
continued to contact friends of the girls' in an effort
to find out where they might have gone.
Deputies received a call from a male who said that
Pippin had stopped by his home to see if he wanted.
to ride around with him on Nov. 2 around 11 p.m.
One of the girls was in the vehicle with Pippin, After
he joined them, they went to pick up the other girl,
according to the deputy's report. When the second
girl got in the vehicle, she had some bags packed and
asked Pippin to take her as far away as he could.
Pippin then took his three passengers to Ala-
bama and, after the girl said she wanted to return
home, drove everyone back to Calhoun County. He
dropped the girls off around 7:30 a.m. Nov. 3.
After investigators contacted Pippin a second
time, he volunteered to goto the sheriff's office for
questioning. There, admitted that he had sex with
one of the girls at his residence, fully aware that she
Mom, daughter arrested
trying to keep deputies
from serving warrant
A Calhoun County woman wanted on a proba-
tion violation for failing to appear in court was
arrested after trying to hide from a deputy at her
home last week when they went to serve a warrant.
The woman's mother, who later told officers her
daughter was not home, was also taken into custody
and charged with obstruction.
When Deputy Eddie Dalton went to serve a
warrant for the arrest of Angela Howard Nov. 2,
he told her mother he did not want to make the
arrest in front of Howard's children and asked her
to come outside.
Howard's mother, Dorothy H. Smith, told the
deputy she would try to talk to her daughter. At
some point, the situation escalated and Major Ro-
man Wood, who was on the phone with the deputy,
heard Smith yelling in the background.
Wood responded to the scene and when he ar-
rived, he walked around to the back of the residence
on Cook Road. Before he reached the backdoor,
he heard what sounded like a door slamming, but
could tell that no one had come out of the house
from that exit.
Smith told'Dalton and Wood that her daughter
had just run out the backdoor. Wood then walked
up the back steps and while looking through a
small area beside a window air conditioning unit,
he overheard Howard speaking softly to her young
son, telling him to go in the living room with his

I Cocaine distribution
arrest made at Boyd
An investigation by the Blountstown Police De-
s- apartment has led to the arrest of a 19-year-old on
y, drug distribution charges after they recovered 11
); small plastic baggies each containing an estimated
$20 worth of cocaine.
7g After getting reports of drug activity around the
Iy Boyd Street Apartment Complex, officers from the
in Blountstown Police Department began an inves-
tigation. One suspect in question was kept under
surveillance as officers hid in the bushes to watch
7d his activities while he stood in a well-lit area in front
of the apartments this past weekend.
S Each time a patrol car passed by, the suspect
identified as Delandon O'Neal Reed would
retreat into an apartment close to the corner, accord-
ing to an investigator's report.
As officers waited to witness a transaction Sat-
e, urday night, they listened as Reed talked on a.cell
phone. A vehicle dropped off an unidentified female,
who warned Reed that the police were in the area
that night. Officers watched from 30 yards away as
Reed walked around the area in what appeared to
b- be an attempt to see if they were nearby.
At that point, the officers .emerged from the
or bushes and approached Reed.
le Another woman alerted Reed that the police
in were there and he turned, cursed and began walking
behind a truck parked near the apartments. One of
d, the officers saw him take a small plastic bag from
his pocket and put in on the spare tire on the back
of the truck.
Officers recognized what appeared to be cocaine
packaged in several bags inside one bag and seized
S it. Reed quickly walked into the nearby apartment
and closed the door.
I- When an officer followed him to the apartment,
he knocked on the door and told the woman who
,nt answered that a felony suspect had just entered her
home. He stepped inside, located Reed and quickly
made an arrest, and took the suspect to the police
After checking the baggie they recovered, officers
estimated the value of the cocaine at $220. Reed had
$135 in cash in denominations that "clearly indicated
that the cash was obtained from the suspect selling
the baggies at $20 each," according to the report
from the police department.
Reed was charged with possession of cocaine with
intent to distribute and taken to the county jail.
River Street wreck
t results in DUI arrest
A Calhoun County deputy on his way to assist
police officers in a drug investigation came across an
accident and an intoxicated driver as he drove down
River Street just before 2 a.m. Tuesday.
A police officer drove up on the wreck, which
happened when Vicki Layfield was traveling north-
bound on River Street, crossed the roadway and hit
the metal protection post at a fire hydrant on the west
side of the road.
The deputy reported that Layfield was behind the
wheel with the engine running and the headlights
flashing after impact. The officer removed the driver
through the passenger side of the vehicle.
After getting the driver's permission to search
the vehicle, the officer looked inside and found a
beer can that had been modified for use as a pipe.
Residue found on the pipe later tested positive for
Layfield performed poorly during a field sobriety
evaluation and was placed under arrest.
She submitted to breath alcohol testing at the
police department, but refused to take a urine test,
stating she "knew she was hot."

possession of drug paraphernalia. -She was also is-
sued citations for careless driving and possession

President Bush outlined the U.S. government's plan

to attack the flu over there in Iraq, before it attacks

Scooter Liby was indicted on two counts of
obstruction of justice, three counts of perjury, and
one count of.not being as smart as Karl Rove.

Most people are not able to purchase medical insur-

in the workforce. Many companies do not offer group

are not able to offer group insurance.
Those of us who are old enough to qualify for Medicare
are lucky. At least,.we have some health care services

about 40 million people in America who have no insur-.

Why not put garbage fees on a sliding scale?
To the editor:
I am in agreement with Mr.
Jones who resents paying higher
rates for garbage pickup in Liberty
County, but after rounding up a
little information on ourpopulation
I have to say that's the way it has
to be, but not quite!
As of 2004, we have a
population of 7,406. According
to the 2000 Census we have 2,145
children under the age of 18, so
the paying population is reduced
to 3,261; of that we have 1,481
people below the poverty line, so
now paying population is reduced
to 2,780. Of the total population,
1,494 are disabled, some can
afford to pay, some can't. With
10.2 percent of the population
over 65, some can pay, some can't.
This leaves most of the burden of
cost on the 2,780 people. Some
pay, some don't.
Since certain people claim
they cannot afford to pay, my
suggestion would be to use the
same criteria as many federal
programs showing proof of
income. Many people could pay,
on a sliding scale and this would
help the people that are absorbing
the cost for them. I was. told 40
percent of the garbage pickup is
'I 1 U T' THE
i ;, :, .. :^ : .,, -
non-pay. If they were able to pay
even $1 a month it would ease a
little of the financial burden to
What really upsets me.is a
statement 1 heard a commissioner
make, "We have to absorb the costs
for the non-payers because they
will just throw their garbage in
the woods or the rivers and pollute
our county." This may be a true
statement, but I personally think
this is an "Oh, well attitude."
I really believe.that people
should show cause for non-
payment, proof of income, and I
believe-laws should come down.
strict on people that choose to
contaminate the woods and rivers.
If they are healthy enough to carry
their trash to the woods and rivers,
but claim they have no funds to
pay for pickup and fail to comply
with proof of income, they can
clean the cemeteries or do some
other community service that
will benefit the people who are
carrying their load.
Our government is elected
to represent us because we are
supposed to be the government.
If "We the people" do not make
our wishes known-then we get
what we get!
Since our population is so
small, what I would like to see
is each commissioner holding
meetings for their constituency
in each district at least once every
three months to receive input. Not
to be impolite, but this would give
a few of our leaders something to
do to earn their salary. Ideas .are
good, meetings do not have'to
be in a formal setting, think and
expand to help our county grow.
I also believe that letters, not just
phone calls or passing comments
on the street, are a good source
of conveying your wishes to the
powers that be.
Commissioners, consider this
my input. I hope you receive many
suggestions that will help you to
guide this county.

must be efficient and effective.
They can't waste money at
least not for long and they have

Further evidence of my stupidity
is that Ihave blamed our elected
officials for the mockery that is
made of America's Democratic

Maybe I was wearing my "I'm
stupid" sign when I requested
public records from the Liberty
County Clerk's office. I paid for
incomplete information the first
time because the clerk informed
me that certain requested
information was confidential.
When I insisted that they provide.

supported his claim, the clerk was
unable to do so. As result, I was

information and charged again for

I was charged for the cost of copies,
for gathering the information, for

county attorney and researching

pay for the copies and for the time

I did not expect to pay for the
clerk's lack of knowledge of
the law or for the time spent
consulting with the attorney. What
does he get paid $80,000 a year for
anyway? Another gentleman was
provided the same information by

Deadline for 2006 EQIP signup Dec. 15
from the USDA
Natural Resources Conserva-
tion Service (NRCS) in Florida is
announcing that the Environmen-
tal Quality Incentives Program
(EQIP) continuous signup will
have a cutoff (or watching period)
date of Dec. 15. EQIP offers fi-
nancial and technical assistance
to eligible participants to install
or implement structural and man-
agement practices on eligible agri-
cultural land. EQIP activities are
carried out according to a plan of
operation developed in conjunction
with the producer that identifies
conservation practices to address
their resource concerns. Local
priorities include erosion control
on cropland / pastureland (conser-
vation tillage; cover crop, critical
area treatment, tree planting, etc.),
pasture & hayland management
(well, pipeline, trough, grass plant-
ing, interior cross fencing, etc.)
and forestry (tree planting for land
use conversion). Individual county
priorities may vary slightly due
to locally established priorities.
Livestock practices such as wells,
troughs, cross-fencing, etc are only
eligible on existing operations.
All approved contracts will be
for a minimum two years and a
maximum of ten years to allow
installation of practices according
to NRCS standards and specifica-
tions in order to secure cost-share

PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE
Text: Ephesians 6:10-18
Robert J. Morgan says that Thomas
Edison's 1,093 inventions transformed
the world. Among those were "motion
pictures, mimeograph machines, the
phonograph, and the electric light."
How did he do it?
He never allowed, himself to be-
come discouraged. He once experi-
mented 10,000 times with a storage
battery without results. Edison said,
"Why, I've not failed, I've just found
10,000 ways that won't work."
Satan often succeeds in tempting
you through your emotions. If he can
discourage you from doing good, you
will quit. If he can stir your anger, he
can tempt you with revenge. If he can
create discontentment within you, he
can tempt you with all kinds of evil de-
sires. He can cripple you with depres-
sion. He can isolate you with paranoia.
He can entice you with pleasure. He
can render you ineffective with guilt.
In order to defeat Satan, you will
need to put on the Breastplate of Righ-
teousness. The breastplate guarded
the vital organs such as the heart. The
heart figuratively is the center of our
emotions. We must guard our emo-
tions. We.must walk by faith and not
by sight. We must learn to see things
from God's perspective. We must
learn to follow God and cling to Him
even when-it does not make sense to
For example, if you are suffering
through a severe trial, you may be
tempted to feel abandoned by God.
You must base your response on the
truth. The truth is that God loves you
and He will never leave you, forsake
you, or allow you to be tempted be-
yond what you can bear. Don't make
decisions based on how you feel.
Make decisions based on truth.

The crew of the Veterans
Memorial Railroad would like
to thank the many people who
made it a wonderful event. First,
we had the fun of entertaining
800 plus kids of all ages with
a scary ride through the dark
woods on three nights. Since we
have a small, active workforce,
we depend heavily on volunteers
to do mbst of the scary things.
This year we were well-blessed
with many eager and skillful
hands that made it all possible.
Our sincere thanks go out
to these folks: Liberty County
Sheriff's Department for bar-
ricading some roads as well as
providing a law enforcement
presence in the park. The Road
Department set up the barri-
cades we needed to control traf-
fic. The young men from the
Liberty Wilderness Crossroads
camp handled our parking with
professional skill. Lloyd and Ivy
Harger provided the mad doc-
tor's laboratory while Chris and
Helen Moran and family han-
dled the ticket master's position
and sold food and drinks which-
they had donated. Lee Ann Sum-
mers, Kathy and Mike Fox and
family as well as Becky and Joe
Brown and family helped out in
many positions where they were

wanted to help. They elected to
take charge of the east loop (the
scariest part) and told us to just
get out of the way. Edwin Hobby

ening. Jerome Flowers and his
crew manned a perilous passage
over one of the bridges. Ricky
Parrish and his gang set up rov-

Liberty County Bulldogs end season
with 51-0 shutout over R.F. Munroe
by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
Liberty County plowed through the R. F. Munroe Bob-
cats on Senior Night, 51-0, as seven different Bulldogs
scored touchdowns to move Liberty's record to 6-4.
The Bulldogs wasted no time in taking control of the
game. After stopping Munroe's offense, the Bulldogs
scored their first touchdown of the night on a 23-yard
quarterback keeper by Jace Ford. Ford ran through a
tackler at the goal line to complete the play. Clint Hill's
extra point was good and Liberty had the early 7-0 lead
with 8:08 remaining in the quarter.
On Liberty's next possession Ford again found the
end zone, this time on a 62-yard scamper that saw Lib-
erty's blockers dropping the Bobcats all over the field
as the quarterback cut back and forth. The Hill kick was
wide right and Liberty led 13-0. The two touchdowns by
Ford were his only carries of the game.
On the ensuing kickoff, Liberty recovered a fumble
deep in Bobcat territory to put the Bulldog offense on
the field again. The offense was quick to strike. The third
score of the first quarter came on A.J. Marlow's 12-yard
run for a touchdown. Marlow's run was capped by the
Hill extra point and LCHS was ahead 20-0 with 2:48
remaining in the quarter.
After stopping the Bobcats yet again, Liberty's Ja-
mar Lane added another touchdown to the tally. Lane's
seven-yard run through a huge hole in the offensive line
moved the score to 26-0. A low snap on the extra point
attempt was picked up by Ford who was tackled ending
Liberty's last touchdown of the first half came from
the defense. Wade McCoy intercepted a Bobcat pass on
the visitor's 31-yard line. As McCoy neared the end zone,
he was still trying to outrun one last would-be tackler. As
the Bobcat moved to make the tackle, McCoy dove for
the end zone and was able to stretch the ball across the
goal line before going down. The score moved the lead
to 38-0 and assured a ruiiinii-n clock would be used for
the entire second half. A low snap resulted in a failed
extra point attempt.
Heath Flanagan scored the only points of the third
quarter. Flanagan pushed the ball in from one yard out
to give the Bulldogs another touchdown. Hill's kick was
good to move the lead to 45-0.
The final touchdown of the night came on a nice five-
yard run by Rick Shuler. Shuler's run came with 7:03 re-
maining in the game. After a missed extra point Shuler's
touchdown made the final score 51-0.
LCHS Head Coach Randy Roland said he was glad
to see the seniors get to end their season with a big win.
"Those guys played hard for us all year ... it was
nice to see them get to end their careers at Liberty Coun-
ty with a win," Roland said. He continued, "We made
some progress this year. We impro\ ed and finished \ ith
a winning season, and now we've got to build on that to
keep things moving forward."

Blountstown Tigers mark second consecutive
undefeated season after shutting out Wewa 28-0
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The Blountstown Tigers wrapped up their second consecu-
tive undefeated season after shutting out Wewahitchka 28-0 last
: Friday in Gulf County.
""Our kids went out and did their job," said Blountstown Head
Coach Bobby Johns.. "They played hard and executed well,-
especially early in the game."
While Johns expressed disappointment that his team did not
play better in the second half, "We played well enough early to
kind of put the game out of reach."
Ryan Baker scored three touchdowns in the first half. Each
TD was followed by a successful extra-point kick by Jacob
--- Williams, which put the halftime score at 21-0.
Baker opened the scoring on a three-yard run in the first quar-
ter, then scored twice in the second quarter first, on a one-yard
run and then on a 15-yard run with 1:28 left in the half.
Arsenio Ivory scored on a 52-yard run in the third quarter,
followed by Williams' fourth successful kick of the night to end
the scoring at 28-0.
There was no scoring in the fourth quarter. "We played a
lot of young kids and moved the ball around pretty good, but it
.didn't get into the end zone," Johns said.
Despite the one-sided score, Johns said the Wewa Gators had
two opportunities to get some points on the board. "The game
could have been a lot tighter if they'd'capitalized on those two
Offensively, Blountstown had 40 rushing attempts for 310
yards and four touchdowns. They completed three of seven
passing attempts and had one interception for 367 yards.
Defensively, the Tigers had 60 yards rushing and 35 yards

Liberty County Lady Dawgs state bound!
For the first time in Liberty
County High School histor., the
Lad\ Dawgs are headed to the
State Championship inals. The.
Lad) Dawgs \'olle\ bail team
scored a biL w\in o\et ihe Baker
Gators onThursday in the region-
al finals to claim \\ lle-deser\ ed
spot in the state tournament.
-When the Gators rolled into
town with an impressive record
of 19-1, the average person
would think that the Lady Dawgs
were destined for defeat. But
the Dawgs were ready for the
challenge. The Gators brought
the momentum to the court dur-
ing the first game and defeated
the Lad\ Dawgs 15-25. Coach
Peddie comments, "'After the
first game, I noticed that they
were keying in on nmy big hit-
ter, Dayna Ramsey, so I knew
my strategy needed to change. I
needed my setters to mix up the
sets ith ni\ outside and middle
hitters.-" This strategy y seemed to
be exactly\ what the tean needed
to turn things around. After afew
saves and passes from Jacqueline
Sans, a few great hits, by Lind-
sey Nobles and a few blocks by
Ramsey, the team really started
clicking and won the second
The Dai\ gs kept the momen-
tum flo. ing for the third game.
"I knew I needed m\ senior set-
ters, Natalie Eubanks and Julie
Brick, -to step up and carry the
team," says Coach Peddie. That
is exactly what they did. The
Lady-Dawgs were victorious
in the third game and 25 points
away from a trip to state.
The fourth and final game was
the most intense of the match. The
lead kept going back and forth
between the Bulldogs and the Ga-
tors. When the score was 17-22,
Coach Peddie called a time out.
"I pulled mi team to the side and
told them to dig deep (the team's
motto) and win this game.".The
Dawgs took the court after the,
time out with the right frame of
mind: "When I looked out on the
court, I made eye contact with
two players, Candace Holley
and Britt Reed," sa\ Peddie. "I
could tell that the% w ere fired up
and focused. At thht point Iknew
we were about to 'in the game."
After going into extra points,
Marissa Shuler served an ace to
defeat the Gators 28-26 and the
-gymnasium erupted with cheers.

Bronson announces collection of
$14,000 in price-gouging fines
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced that his de-
partment has collected $14,000
in fines from four service stations
in connection with price-goug-
-ing investigations following the
hurricanes of the past summer.
The stations, among 10 of-
fered settlement agreements in
recent weeks for allegedly engag-
ing in price gouging, signed the
agreements calling for the pay-
ment of the fines and a pledge by
the service stations that they will
comply with the price-gouging
law in the future.
Moreover, each of the stations
has agreed to reimburse consum-
ers for any overcharges, provid-
ed that customers have receipts
showing that, they purchased
gasoline from that facility on the
dates that the stations were cited
for overcharges in the settlement
The four companies that have
paid fines are:
*South\ est Georgia Oil Com-
pany Inc.. of Bainbridge, Ga,
which does business as Inland
#262, 1039 Main Street, Chi-
pley. It was fined $10,000 after
investigators in Bronson's office
determined that it had unlaw-
fully raised prices by 75.7 cents
for a gallon of gasoline between
August 30 and August 31.
SM&M Blue Sky Inc., which
does business as Gas n Shop,
1201 County Road 452, Eustis..
For information, call us today at:
643-3333 or 1 (800) 717-3333.
It was fined $2,500 for illegally
hiking its price of gas by 24.7
cents a gallon between August
24 and September 9.
*Stop and Save LLC, 5712
West Tennessee Street, Tallahas-
see. The station was fined $1,000
for illegally raising its price of a
gallon of gas by 17.2 cents be-
tween July 7 and July 11.
*Express Lane Inc., of 206
Monument Avenue, Port St, Joe.
It was fined $500 for illegally
raising its price for a gallon of
gas by 8.7 cents between July 7
and July 24.
Meanwhile, Bronson said
that his department is prepared
to file lawsuits against the six
other stations offered settlement
agreements unless they settle
with his department in the com-
Since Bronson's price goug-
ing hotline -- 1 800 HELP FLA
(435-7352) -- was activated with
the first of the hurricanestinJuly,
it has received nearly 12,000
calls and more than 3,400 com-
plaints. The Commissioner em-
phasized that each complaint
has been or will be investigated.
"Consumers are entitled to be
treated fairly, and any company
that we find that has exploited
them during or after a storm will
be dealt with harshly," Bronson

That's because seniors are es-
pecially vulnerable to respiratory
problems, including complications
from the flu, dangerous forms of
pneumonia, and chronic conditions
like chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease, or COPD.
Luckily, there are steps seniors
can take to keep their lungs in
proper working order as they age.
The first and most important
- is to quit smoking if you're a
"Quitting at any age will pay
off, in additional years of life and
better quality of life," says Helen
Sorenson, MA, RRT, FAARC,
professor of respiratory care at the
University of Texas Health Science
Center in San Antonio and chair
of the AARC's Geriatrics Commit-
tee. "No matter how old you are or
your state of health, becoming to-
bacco free will provide immediate
improvement in your health."
There are lots of ways to quit,
but among the best are programs
that incorporate coiuneling with
proven treatments like nicotine re-
placement therapy, continues the
registered respiratory therapist.
There are even programs espe-
cially designed to meet the needs
of older people who may not be
able to leave their 'homes with
ease. "The use of telephone coun-
seling appears promising with
older smokers, in particular those
who have mobility/transportation
issues," says Sorenson.
Seniors can also protect their
respiratory health by getting an
annual flu shot and the pneumo-
nia vaccine. "The virus that causes
the flu often changes from year to
year, so the CDC develops a new
vaccine for adults each year," says
The pneumonia vaccine protects
against the most deadly forms of
the disease and usually only needs
to be given one time unless you
received the shot before age 65, in
which case a booster shot may be
Pulmonary screenings and life-
style changes can keep everyone
breathing easy as well. "Basic pul-
monary screening, which measures
how much air you can blow out
and how fast you can blow the air
out, provide very useful informa-
tion for physicians," says Soren-
son. The tests, she continues, are
ing weight down as we age, though
she advises those with chronic
conditions to check with their doc-
tors before making any dietary
As for exercise, she says just
get out there and do something you
enjoy. "Regular exercise that is
fun, like walking the dog,.. tending
a flower garden, or participating in
a sport, is often the most successful
way to add additional activity."
Respiratory Therapists (RTs)
are specially trained and licensed
lespi-ti-i\ health care profession-
als assisting physicians in diagno-
sis, treatment, and management of
respiratory, diseases. RTs provide
care in hospitals, outpatient centers,
physicians' offices, skilled nursing
facilities, and patients' homes.

Our Gulf Coast weather al-
lows for year round gardening.
There is always something to
do in the landscape or garden,
even during cooler weather.
Although the first frost will
likely occur in late November
to early December, now is a
great time to plant trees, shrubs
and cool-season annual flowers
November is a good time to
establish the cool-season flow-
ering plants to add color to a
winter landscape. There are
several species that grow well
during the winter and flower
early in the year. Set out pan-
sies, petunias, snapdragons,
ornamental kale and cabbage,
dianthus and other cool season
The pansy is one of our best
winter annual flowers. It is
extremely cold tolerant, able
to withstand hard freezes and
by Theresa Friday,
Agent, Santa Rosa County
recover completely. A well es-
tablished and maintained pansy
bed provides color throughout
the winter and into late spring.
SCool season vegetables can
be started now by planting the
seeds of beets, carrots, kale,
kohlrabi, mustard, parsley, rad-
ish and spinach. If transplants
are still available, you have
time to plant broccoli, cabbage,
Brussels sprouts, Chinese cab-
bage, collards, kale, leek and
November is also an ideal
time for planting hardy shrubs
and trees in the landscape. Our
relatively mild soil tempera-
tures allow for root growth dur-
ing the winter. Fall planted
woody ornamentals are well on
their way toward establishing
their new root systems before
the stress from summer heat the
With the onset of colder tem-
peratures', be prepared to move
tender potted plants inside.
Our first frost or freeze usu-
ally occurs in November and
cold sensitive plants that are
left outdoors could be damaged
severely. Most tropical plants
should not be exposed to tem-
peratures below 40 degrees F.
One of the easier methods
of keeping tender potted plants
from the cold, while at the same
time making it easier on your
back, is to build a roll-about
plant cart that can be brought
in and out of the garage or en-
closed patio whenever low tem-
peratures threaten. This allows
you to give the plant sunnier
conditions during the dAytime
when temperatures are usually
warmer, but then. allows for a
quick transport into the protect-
ed area before night.
November is a good time for
an application of horticultural
oil spray. Horticultural oils are
relatively safe products used in
controlling scales, mites and
other insect pests found on or-
namental shrubs. Follow label
Permanent lawn grasses in
Northwest Florida (bahiagrass,
St. Augustinegrass and zoysia-
grass) go dormant in late fall
or winter. These grasses grow
very slowly and lose color in
the fall, and turn completely
brown with the first frost. If
you want a green lawn through-
out the winter, sow ryegrass.
Ryegrasses are popular be-
cause of rapid seed germination,
fast -growth, adaptability, and
reasonably low cost. Ryegrass
is widely adapted, does well in
either sun or shade, and toler-
ates close, frequent mowing.
Once the winter lawn is estab-
lished however, it will require
the same maintenance as the
permanent lawn. This includes
mowing, watering, fertilizing,
and controlling pests. So, seed
with ryegrass only if you plan
to commit to-lawn maintenance
throughout the winter.
Tip ofthe Week: If your cen-
tipedegrass blades have sud-
denly developed red tips, don't
worry. Centipedegrass will
frequently turn red in response
to cold temperatures.

dential Horticulture Extension

Businesses encouraged to hire Florida veterans
nizing the value of those who
have served our country, Gov-

2005 "Hire a Veteran Month"
in Florida. The Governor's dec-

campaign to reaffirm commit-

our nation in times of peace and
war. Coordinated by the U.S.

to remind employers of the un-

"Florida veterans have con-

process have gained valuable
skills, leadership and maturity.
They represent a versatile and

Influenza Workshop to be held at
Veterans Memorial Park Dec. 16
from the Florida Department of Health
Influenza pandemics have oc-
curred three times in the 20th
century. The first and most dead-
ly was the pandemic of 1918-
1919, which is considered the
most severe pandemic in record-
ed history from any cause. In the
United States, it is estimated that
675,000 influenza-related deaths
occurred. The virus was unusual
also in that it attacked young,
healthy adults in disproportion-
ate numbers. The other two
pandemics of the 20th century,
1957-58 and 196S-69. though
not nearly as severe, caused far
more deaths than expected in a
typical influenza season.
The span of time between in-
fluenza pandemics in the 20th
century ranged from 11 years
to 39 years. It has now been 37
years since the last influenza
pandemic. It is believed that
another influenza pandemic can
occur at any time and possibly
well outside the typical influen-
za season. Asian Avian Influenza
Want to change
All kinds of
government information are
(also known as Bird Flu) is cur-
rently on everyone's mind from
the President on down to county
and community leaders. No one
knows if the current avian flu
-will mutate into the "Big One"
this season or the next or the
next. "The clock is ticking: we
just don't know what time it is."
-With this in mind, we would
like to invite you to attend a
pandemic' influenza workshop
called Pandemic Pandemonium.
The workshop includes a keep-
it-simple education piece aimed
at county and community lead-
ers about influenza, how it is
spread, interventions, and po-
tential impacts on the health,
economy and social fabric of a
community. The culmination
of the exercise will result in a
community-based action plan
that will consider responses to
a threat where everyone may be
on their own for an extended pe-
riod of time.
The workshop will be held
at the Veterans Memorial Park
Civic Center, 10405 NW Theo
Jacobs Way, Bristol from 9 a.m.
to 3 p.m. (ET) on Friday, Dec.

Q: Is tilapia one of the fish
high in omega-3fat?
A: No. Tilapia has only about
one gram of fat altogether in a
serving, unless you add more fat
when cooking. Consequently, the
amount of omega-3 fat in tilapia
is much less than the amount,
in fatty fish like salmon, Atlan-
tic mackerel, sea bass, rainbow
trout, albacore tuna, herring and
sardines. However, tilapia is still
a good meal choice. It's a sweet,
mild fish that is great for people
who don't like a fishy taste. It's
also wonderful when you want to
use a flavorful sauce or season-
ing that the fish won't compete
with. You don't have to look for
fish with high amounts of ome-
ga-3 fat, if you want to eat better.
Simply having any kind of fish
twice a week has been linked
with health benefits.
Q: After severely overweight
people have surgery to lose
weight, do they automatically
eat less, or do they have to learn
new eating habits?
A: A person has to learn new
eating habits after weight-loss
surgery, and many people under-
estimate the difficulty involved.
During the weight-loss phase
immediately after surgery, peo-
ple are often advised to eat about
five meals a day, each less than
a half-cup, along with protein
supplements. After this phase,
for long-term maintenance, a
person's meal size still remains
4 under a cup. However, people
can't simply reduce the portion
size of foods they're used to eat-
ing. Because of changes in the
digestive tract, people need to
learn to chew their food far more
finely than most of us do. Liq-
uids need to be consumed sepa-
rately from solid foods. "Eating
on the run" can become a real
problem, if people did that be-
fore. People can also develop an
intolerance to tough meat, soft
bread, certain vegetables, skins
of fruits, high-fat foods, carbon-
ated beverages, or high-sugar
foods. Although you might think
it's easier to avoid foods-if you
can't tolerate eating them, emo-
tion often plays a major role in
people's food choices. Experts
say that people who use food to
cope.with stress or emotion may
do the same thing after weight-
loss surgery. These people may
also need extended help learning
new ways to deal with family
situations and personality traits
that promote overeating. They
may also need to acquire greater
awareness of physical and emo-
tional cues that prompt them
to start eating when they aren't
hungry. Consequently, a skilled
team including a therapist and
registered dietitian is strongly
advised for both a person's safe-
ty and a successful outcome af-
ter this kind of surgery.
Q: Does ice cream count as
a serving of dairy for supplying
A: Since ice cream is a dairy
product, it does contain some
calcium, but it also supplies a
hefty dose of sugar and fat. Each
the extra-rich gourmet brands
Ir -l R jm NW -1 I- V i

- has 150 to 175 milligrams
(mg) of calcium. Along with that
amount of calcium, you will get
about 270 calories and 14 grams
of fat. If you eat enough ice
cream to get the 300 mg of cal-
cium found in one cup of skim
milk, you would consume six
times the amount of calories that
the skim milk has and more than
Dear Gadsden. Liberty & Calhoun
Two years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following three
things made car shopping a big headache
*Haggling for the best price
Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag
28 grams of fat. By choosing re-
duced-fat or no-added-sugar ice
cream, you can lower the calo-
rie content somewhat of the ice
than the amount in milk. You
should find other sources of cal-
cium and consider ice cream an
optional food for "discretionary
calories." These are foods that
you eat in small amounts, savor-
ing their taste, once you have
met your nutritional needs with
cream, but it is still far greater a balanced diet.
