Driver OK after car crosses into path of semi on S.R. 20

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A21-year-old driver is lucky to be alive after he drove
across the center line of State Road 20 and slammed into
an oncoming log truck Friday in Liberty County.
Had it not been for the quick reaction of the truck
driver who steered off the road to avoid a head-on col-
lision, it is unlikely Wesley Preble of Mulberry would
have survived the crash, -according to FHP Trooper
Travis Wilson.
Wilson said Preble was eastbound on State Road 20,
about three miles east of Bristol around 6:51 p.m. when
his 1989 Plymouth crossed the center line of the road
and slammed into the side of the westbound log truck
driven by Monk Barfield, 70, of Grand Ridge.
The car hit the semi where the tractor and its empty
trailer were connected, Wilson said. "The truck driver
said that when he saw him coming into his lane, all he

collision with a log truck. JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTO
had time to do was hit the brakes and jerk the wheel,"
according to the troQper.
Preble suffered a concussionn and a dislocated hip in

the crash. "I'm doing all right, I guess...I'mon crutches,"
he told The Journal Monday. He said he had been in
Pensacola earlier that day and was heading back to his
home in Mulberry, near Lakeland, that e\ ening.
He said he did not know how the accident occurred
and had no recollection of the wreck or what happened
just prior to the crash.
Rescue workers used the Jaws of Life cutting tools to
remove Preble from the wreckage. He was then taken by
emergency helicopter to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital,
where he was treated and released.
The trooper said there was no indication that Preble's
driving was impaired. He has been charged with care-
less driving.
Preble's car was totaled.- The semi, which is regis-
tered to Charlie's Logging of Bristol, had severe frame
damage. The truck driver was not injured.

Chipley woman escapes serious injury

after car overturns ori HWy. 67 Friday

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Chipley woman who was
trapped in her car after it over-
turned Friday night was freed by
rescue workers using extraction
tools and emerged with only mi-
nor injuries, including lacerations
to her head.
According to the Florida High-
way Patrol, Katrina Marie Stew-
art, 25, was traveling on Hwy. 67
approximately three to four miles
east of Telogia when she lost con-
trol of her 1995 AMC Eagle and
overturned around 7:26 p.m.
The car ran into a stand of trees
and the impact pushed the dash
down over her lap, trapping her
knees under the steering wheel.
Emergency workers had to cut
away several small trees to get to
the trapped vehicle, which landed
on its side in heavy brush.
After realizing her injuries
were not severe, rescue workers
from the Blountstown Fire De-
partment decided to do a "techni-
cal extraction" in which they took
between 45 minutes and an hour
to free the driver.
"She was entrapped by the

door and the dash," said Fire-
fighter Jonathan Kimbrel. He
said the wreckage, "' as just kind
of wrapped around her legs in a
u-shape." Kimbrel said he was-
impressed with Stewart's de-
menor, which made their work a
lot easier. "She was in stable con-


edition and very calm," he said..
6"It was a bad accident," he.
said, adding, "She's a very, very
lucky girl. It was amazing that
she was in as good a shape as
she \ as in."
Stewart was taken by Air Heart
emergency helicopter toTallahas-
see Memorial Hospital, where she
was treated and released.
Stewart, who is a correctional
officer, was reportedly either on
her way to or coming home from
work at an area prison when her
car went off the road.

A41-year-old Calhoun County
man was arrested after he alleg-
edly robbed and cut his 83-year-
old father in a dispute over money
When a deputy responded to a
call at the Bryant Road home the
two men share, Homer Padgett
was found with blood on his
clothing and had a small cut on
his left wrist.
Padgett said his son, Homer
Gregory Padgett was intoxicated
and .when he ran out of beer
around 5 p.m., he asked him for
$10, telling his father he wanted
to buy some barbecue sauce.
Padgett believed his son want-
ed to use the money for more beer
and refused his request.
According to the report filed
with the Calhoun County Sher-
iff's Department, Padgett said
his son unplugged the phones in
the house, then pulled a butcher
knife on him and demanded
money. Padgett, who is on oxy-
gen around-the-clock, said his
son moved close to him and
began swinging the knife around
in a threatening manner before
making a one-inch deep cut on
his wrist.
The younger Padgett stabbed
the knife into a coffee table next
to his father. At that point, the el-
der Padgett got his wallet to give
his son some money and took out
14one-dollarbills. When his son
saw a $10 remaining inthe wallet,
he took that also.
Padgett told the deputy he was
unable to defend himself due to
his illness. His son left for a
while. When he returned, he went
outside and began to barbecue,
Padgett said.

Padgett's son. he found him

BHS grad Talha Jamal will

be heading to Afghanistan

by Teresa Eubanks,
Journal Editor
When he was seven years
old in 1993, Talha Jamal left
Pakistan and made a new
home in Blountstown.
Twelve years later, Talha
is preparing for another big
move. He's getting ready
to be deployed to Afghani-
Talha joined the Army
Reserves three months be-
fore he graduated as saluta-
torian with the Blountstown
High School Class of
Since that time, he's
completed boot camp and
four months of medical
training to prepare him
for his duties as a combat
He leaves this week for
a month of mobilization
training here in the states.
Afterward, he will head for
Afghanistan where he will
remain for 18 months.
"I enlisted after 9-11, so
I expected to be deployed,"
he said. "It's a job that I
have to do. I'll do it and
then I'll come back and
continue my education."
Talha was in the middle of
his second semester at the
University of Florida when

but he was then reassigned
to Afghanistan. He's not
clear on the specifics of his
new assignment, but he be-
lieves it may entail taking
care of soldiers or enemy
"I wanted to go once be-
fore I became an officer to
experience it as an enlisted
person," said Talha, who
hopes to become a physi-

cian and plans to make a
career in the military.
"I'll be a better doctor,
or whatever I decide to be,
because of this experience,"
he said.
His father, Syed Jamal
- who worked as a lab tech
at Calhoun-Liberty Hospi-
tal for 12 years said the
family is concerned, but
very proud of his decision.
"As a parent, I am wor-
ried about his safety, but I
am proud he performs his
duty." His father added, "I
want people to know that
we, as Muslims, are part of
the anti-terrorist campaign
around the world."
He said it was his son's
childhood dream to become
a physician in the military.
"He's prepared for that
from childhood and he's
very excited about it," his
father said.
In addition to his father,
Talha will be leaving be-
hind several other family
members in Blountstown,
including his mother, Safia
Jamal, his 17-year-old
brother, Syed Haris Jamal,
his grandfather, Syed Naza-
kat Husain and his uncles,
Mahmood Faruqui and Dr.
Iqbal Faruqui.

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
It's been a busy year for a for-
mer Calhoun County woman who
is thriving in her career with the
Air Force, where she works as a
public health technician.
Staff Sgt. Dawn Elizabeth
Walko Heydt, the daughter of
Sandy and Georgette Walko of
Scotts Ferry, recently received the
Pitsenbarger Award, recognizing
her efforts and achievements in
the military.
The award is based on the
applicant's ability to express and
outline their goals and accom-
plishments, with an emphasis on
personal growth and education,
explains Heydt. She was one of
five in a group of 60 to receive
the honor, which includes a $500

Heydt was also named NCO of
the quarter in her medical group
and received her associate's
degree this year in addition to
being promoted to E6 technical
sergeant. Sheis midway through
her studies for her bachelor's de-
gree in health science. "It's been
a very busy and fruitful year,"
she said. She will mark her 10th
anniversary in the Air Force in
Heydt spent her first seven
years in the Air Force in the fire
department, made the switch to
public health two and a half years
ago and remains enthused about
the opportunities she's found in
the military.
"It's a constant education,"


Ace Hardware

Staff Sgt. Dawn Elizabeth Walko Heydt
she said. She enlisted a few
months after graduating from
Blountstown High School in
1993 and said, "I don't regret a
moment of it."
As a public health technician
she is the middleman between
the patient and doctor, assisting
with a range of health issues from
getting airmen ready to deploy to
breaking the news about serious
illnesses. "Our main job is to
make sure the entire Air Force is
medically ready to deploy."
Because she's the one who
breaks the news to patients about
illnesses as minor as an infection
to issues as serious as sexually
transmitted diseases, her job in-
volves a lot of counseling.
"It's a wonderful job. I love
it,".she said. ."There.'s nothing
like e feeling when someone

comes in scared and wants to talk
to you. Afterwards, they leave
your office and they're smiling.
It's a great feeling."
Heydt was in Calhoun County
this weekend to visit with her
parents before leaving for her
next assignment. She and her
husband, Jeffrey, who has just
retired from the Air Force, will be
going to Ramstein, Germany for
four years. The.couple has most
recently been stationed in North
Heydt's first duty station was
Germany for three years. She
then went to Korea for a year
before returning to the U.S.
While in service, she's trav-
eled the world. She has seen
things that have made a big
impact on her and left her with
a renewed appreciation for the
United States. After seeing living
conditions in Africa and Korea, "I
became really thankful for what I
have in America," she said.
"Most people don't think of
it, but we wake up and it's all
there. We really have it made in
America," she said.
Heydt's brother, Sgt. Gary
Nichols, serves in the U.S. Ma-
rine Corps and will be transferred
to California early next year. He
has most recently been training
new recruits at a boot camp at
a military processing station in
Montgomery, AL.
He expects to .ship out next
September, possibly to Iraq.

Questioning American patriotism

The American people are begin- / O
ning to question why America is COX'S C
fighting a war in Iraq. President
Bush's reasons for invading Iraq are Jerry Cox is a ret
unraveling, and many Americans ground in domestic
believe that Mr. Bush, Mr. Cheney issues. He lives it
and Bush administration officials
might not have been fo thright and
honest when they \ ere presenting their case for invad-
ing Iraq.
Mr. Bush says that the U.S. and other nations had
the same intelligence data that indicated that Saddam
-Hussein either had, or was obtaining weapons of mass
destruction. So, based on that intelligence data, Mr. Bush
went to war.
Mr. Bush's critics see it differently. They claim that
Mr. Bush "cherry picked" the intelligence data to support
his decision to go to war.
During my years in the military, I heard many threat
,briefings. When we %%ere opposing the former Soviet
Union during the Cold War, the threat briefs always por-.
trayed the Soviets as ten feet tall and bulletproof. When
the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, that proved not to.
be true. The troops in the Soviet Army put their pants on
I one leg at a time just like the rest of us.
SMy point:on threat briefings is if the Commander-in-
Chief states on a daily basis that he believes that the Iraqis
have weapons of mass destruction, it won't be too long
before WMDs appear in a threat briefing.
Mr. Bush and his supporters are in the press and on
television defending the decision to go to war, but their
protestations ring hollow. There is too muchjiving, duck-
ing and weaving as Mr. Bush and his mouthpieces attempt
to explain the decision to go to war to the American
people. It sounds a lot like the "twinkie defense" when
someone murders another person. Too much sugar. Or
the old standard, "The devil made me do it." But, in Mr.
Bush's defense, he is on record as saying that God told
him to invade Iraq. Go figure.
Initially, one of Mr. Bush's strong suits was his claim
of honesty and integrity. He came across as a straight
shooter. None of that Bill Clinton stuff of waffling and
parsing words. Tell it like it is.
Well, all of that has gone up in smoke. About 60%
of Americans think that Mr. Bush is dishonest and dis-.
approve of his handling of the nation's affairs. About
3,000 people in the Bush administration will go to "eth-
ics school." 'Too late in my view. If people in the Bush
administration don't know by now that it is dishonest to
lie, cheat and steal, then a one-hour ethics class won't

do the job.
Clearly, the Iraq War has divided
the country. People are speaking out
and voicing their views both for and
against the war. That's healthy. The
First Amendment is alive and well,
and people have a right to say what
they want within the Rule of Law.
People have a right to be for or against

The problem that I have with the Bush administration
is that anyone who disagrees with their policies is branded
as unpatriotic. Mr. Bush's refrain is that protest against
the war sends the wrong message to America's military
personnel. That's scapegoating at its worst.
The American people support their military troops, but
the American people also recognize when military troops
are put in harm's way withoutjust cause and reason. The
military is subservient to civ ilian leadership, as it should
be, but the ci ilian leadership has to be responsible and
judicious in the use of military power.
The irony of all this now the occurring debate alout
the Iraq War. It should have occurred before the first
shot was fired. If the Congress had debated the reasons
for invading Iraq and insisted on a thorough vetting of
the intelligence data on which the decision to invade
was made, then it is not likely that the war would have
All that is hindsight, but Mr. Bush should not be sur-
prised that the American people are demanding answers.
I've written many times that one of the stirengths of
America is the common sense of the American people.
Mr. Bush has now encountered the common sense of
the American people. You can't fool them, at least not
for long.

Text: Ephesians. 6:10-18
SRobert J. Morgan tells of a ship-
wreck during a terrible storm. Only
one little boy survived. He was car-
ried by the waves onto a rock during
the night. He stayed there all night
long clinging to the rock amid the
storm tossed waves. The next morn-
ing, he was spotted and rescued. He.
was asked, "Did you tremble while
you were on the rock during the.
"Yes, I trembled all night-but the
rock didn't,"' the boy replied.
Peace is the rock that keeps us
alive and steady in the middle of the
storm. Whenever fighting temptation,
Paul admonished us to have, "feet
shod with the preparation of the gos-
pel of peace (KJV)."
The ancient soldier wore leather
sandals, whichwere fitted with nails
or spikes. These allowed him to plant
his feet firmly in the ground when
bracing for an oncoming attack. The
shoes provided a sure foundation that
kept him from slipping or falling.
The peace of God passes all un-
derstanding. Whenever people criti-
cize you, alienate you, and think you
strange, you can la your head on the
pillow at night resting in sweet peace
because you are doing the right thing;
Whenever life all around you is in
turmoil, you'can.enjoy an inner peace
because N ou kno\ that God will help
you through it
That is how the apostles could
sing hymns in prison. That is how the
missionary can brave the dangers of
preaching to lost tribes. That is how
any believer in Christ can weather the
storms of life.
A.T. Pierson once said, "The peace
of God is that eternal calm which lies
far too deep in the praying, trusting
soul to be reached by any external

Family appreciates hospital's professionalism & compassion

To the editor:
Words alone cannot adequately
express my heartfelt gratitude for
both the professionalism and
level of care afforded my mother
at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital. The
compassion shown by the staff
was truly noteworthy.
My mother, Marian Marsh,
.was admitted to the emergency
room of the Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital from the Blountstown
Rehabilitation Center on Nov.

To the editor:
I live on Shuler Street in
Hosford and we have a neighbor
on our street that thinks he has
a right to shoot his shotgun in
a residential area and a close
neighborhood (which Shuler
Street is).
About 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 5,
the shooting of a shotgun started
across the road in a wooded
branch. Several pellets showered
the top of our house. That went
on for two hours. My husband
called the sheriff's office to report
it. Deputy Conyers came over,
talked to the subject and believed
him it seems.
The subject said he was
shooting for target practice and
only shot three times and it-i

concerned about

military recruiting
in high schools
STo the editor: ,,
SI am writing to voice my con-
cern about military recruiting in
our public schools. NMname is
Ricky Shea and Iam a sophomore
at J.R. Arnold High School in
Panama Cit) Beach.
While I support the troops and
the rights of a volunteer military,
I do not support institutional-
izing involuntary recruitment
practices. The No Child Left

ly gives the military the right to
take any students private infor-
mation without any form of pa-
rental permission or notification!

There is an opt-out provision
in the legislation, but rarely are
students or parents informed of
it. I encourage students and par-
ents all over our state to send a
letter to their school's adminis-
trators asking them to keep their
information private! A sample

I want to thank all the students
of Calhoun and Liberty counties
for their support and honor of all
the veterans on this past Veterans
Day. The students, staff and the
ROTC cadets that participated
in the program on Nov. 10 really
made me feel more proud of my
duty as a soldier of past war.
My message is that there
are many, many jobs served in
our military services. Just as
a bicycle has many parts that-
make it a machine, all parts are
important, such is our military.
Not e% eryone is on the front line,
but they depend on one another
to keep the machine moving
It takes people of all skills
like those we see ever) day in the
There are mechanics, chefs
and dishwashers too. There
are engineers building roads,
bridges, and housing units. There
are truck drivers deli ering the
supplies and the troops. There
are all kinds of aircraft that
need pilots and navigators, and
people to place the armament on

' -t--I- ,- W --

the aircraft.There are people that
entertain. There are those that
keep lines of communication
working. Someone has to do
laundry too! There are the
sailors that live on floating cities
providing support and protection
to.the troops on the front lines.
It makes no difference \\here
the veterann served or the soldier,
airman, sailor, marine and coast
guard; those on duty now and,
those that have passed on, we
are all brothers and sisters one
to another. We have a bond that
will never be broken.
The military and the veterans
answer a call to duty. We went
and e go without question. We
take pride that \ e are Americans.

that we protect %what America
stands for and \we protect those
that can't protect themselh es.
Not all veterans served during
a war or conflict, but they were
ready, willing and able if they
had been called to war. Some of
the people that didn't go to a war
trained others in a time honored
tradition to be prepared to do,the
best job possible.
The veteranss that have been
in battle % ill stand beside those
that didn't have to go and say,,
"My brother you have protected
the homeland. you did well!"
To the students that honoredthe
veterans. thank you for making
us feel special. Remember. you
maN become doctors or nurses or
maybe lawyers, police officers,
or a great chef. If you can dream
it, there is a place for youth in
the military. It takes more than
a rifleman to defend our way
of life and the freedoms that so
many died for.
One day I'll stand beside-you
to and say, "Job well done, my

Another lawsuit about to descend

on the taxpayers of Calhoun Co.
To the editor:
Pending any miracles from 9+ Calhoun County Commissioners,
another lawsuit is about to descend upon us taxpayers. Once again
all God's elements iConstitution, common sense, logic. etc.i. are
being pushed uphill. I predict all bets will remain off until moral
(constitutional) issues and discussions will be put back into the fabric
of our local go\ ernment-church lifestyles.
Today it's the "lost" city-county drainage ditch which splits Mike
and Cathy Willis' backyard at Chipola Road, south ofHwy. 20. Their
property is located in the county who refuses to make repairs even
though their own survey and easement states: "Board of County
Commissioners agrees to build egress and ingress facility to connect
southeast and southwest portions of property!" My research shows
the loser pays for such lawsuits. therefore it's difficult to fault a
concerned citizen hiring a lawyer. especially one who has apparently
won before against the county.
Costly conflicts of interests. lawsuits, questionable unpoliced
walking trails, show complexes on public property, sharp rock
roads cutting tires...continue on and on. Jehue Landing lawsuit is at
$12,000+ and no end in sight. Lee Hill Road (Moore's law suit and
Sam Adkins Park) has mounting damages.
Right or wrong, elected (not un-elected. lawyers, legally entitled
clean air, food, water and waterless toilets are all synonymous to
me and rankle "Scotch" relatives. It's no help that I %was a former
member of a zoning board, tax board and county commission or that
Uncle John C. Calhoun would roll o\er concerning the amount of
per capital conflicts of interests here, along with the grow mng mess
in Tallahassee where state, count) and city elected lawyers blatantly
sue each other despite and over the dead body of our Article II, Sec.
3, Florida Constitution.
Maybe Nlike Willis should sue. Radical Change vs. Lack of Interest
could create another Tallahassee!

Losingin the state finals this n eekcnd
wasn't the end for the Liberty County
Girls' Volleyball team; it's just the begin-
ning, according to the group's 24-year-
old coach Casi Peddie.
For the first time ever, a Liberty
County team made it to the state finals
and while they didn't win, "We were
the last public school left in the 2A final
four, so that makes us the public school
champions," Peddie said.
Walking in to play at The Lakeland
Center Saturday was "mentally over-
whelming for my girls," she said. When
they took the court to play Oak Hall at
noon, "they got us on our heels and we
never could get back," she said. "They
were a tough school."
Oak Hall won three straight matches
against LCHS, 25-10, 25-13 and 25-9..
Oak Hall then lost to Evangelical Chris-
tian, who took the state 2A volleyball
"The girls were disappointed, but all
it did was fuel the fire," Peddie said.
"They're ready to start training for next
The loss was a big letdown for her
three senior players, Peddie said. "But
on the bus ride home, they were encour-
aging our juniors to get out there and
work harder. The juniors are ready to
start training now and they don't even
want to take a break."

,She said her girls worked hard for
their shot at the state championship,
but admits, "Mentally, they just weren't
ready." Peddie noted that Oak Hall has
been in the playoffs the last three years
"so they knew what to expect."
Peddie said they learned a few things,
too. "Our digging was great, but I have
to change up some things on blocking,"
she said. "I also need to get our headers
in better position."
She said the girls will start strength
training this summer. They are also
going to get involved in club volleyball,
playing with the North Florida Volleyball
Academy in Tallahassee.
With 10 juniors expected to return to
next year's team, the young coach has a
lot to build upon and plans to make an-
other run at the state championship. "We
know what to expect and we've learned
some things," she said of Saturday's
There was one area, however, in which
Liberty County's team did excel: fan
support. "We had way more fans than
anybody even the 6-A teams," Ped-
die said.
When the LCHS team walked out
from the Center with their heads down
after Saturday's disappointing loss, they
were greeted by a big group of supportive
fans. "It seemed like all of Bristol was
out there waiting for them, hugging and
clapping," Peddie said.

Tigers shoot down Sea Hawks 40-0 for first game in playoffs

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The Blountstown Tigers shot down
the South Walton Sea Hawks 40-0 in the
first round of the playoffs Friday night in
Blountstowni as- they-.began their march
toward a state championship.
It was one of the few\ nights head coach
Bobby Johns felt his team played as they
should. "We.were a little passive in the
first half, but we made a few adjustments
at half time and our kids played better,"
he said. "They were a lot more physical
in the second half. That's the hardest l'\e
ever seen our kids hit."
He commented that his team might have
come back playing a little harder in the:
second half "because they were embar-
rassed they weren't able to move the ball
much in the first half:' he said.
Offensively. the Blountstown team
scored on every possession of the night.
':We only ran 38 plays." the coach said.
noting that the team has been averaging 47
plays a game. "The longest drive we had
was nine plays and it rook four minutes
and four seconds. Everything else that
night was fast drives and we scored pretny
quickly." Johns said.
The Tigers' scoring began with 9:46
left in the first quarter on a 28-yard run
by Arsenio Ivory. The extra point attempt

The team scored twice in the second
quarter, first on a 13-yard run by Chance
Attaway and then on a 22-yard run by
I\orn. The first t\o-point play failed and
the second one was good, making the
halftime score 20-0.
Attaway scored on a 68-yard run in the
third quarter. The two-point run by T.C.
Copeland was good and pushed the Tigers'
lead to 28-0.
Copeland then scored on a 14-yard run
in the fourth quarter. The kick failed.
With 4:06 left in the game, Copeland ran
in a six-yard touchdown to end the night's
scoring at 40-0.
Offensively. Attaway had eight carries
for 161 yards and two TDs. Copeland
had nine carries for 89 yards and two
TDs. Ivory had five carries for 68 yards
and two TDs.
Corey Cox filling in for quarterback
MNichael Guilford, w ho was suspended for
that night's game play really well, the
coach commented. "He had five comple-
tions for 47 yards. He did a real good job
of stepping up. controlling things and not
making any mistakes."
Defensively, Johns was well-pleased.
"Core) Silcox had 22 tackles and some
unbelievable hits. He was really, really

physical." Johns said.
Greg Meeks, who came in to play mid-
dle linebacker, had 14 tackles, followed by
Ivory with 13 and Jamie Willis with 10.
Johns said he occasionally gives out a
"Big Stick" award to hard-hitting players,
sometimes one a game. After last week's
showing, "I'm going to have to give out'
eight," he said. "Josh Savell had three
(big tackles) by himself." Greg Meeks had
two and Chaz Johns, Cory Cox and Corey
Silcox each had one.
He said lineman Josh Lee graded out at
100%, followed by Jared Phillips at 97%
and Chaz Johns at 95%,. "We also grade

our linemen on effort and they all graded
out over 90%," the coach said.
"We just played real welliup front this
week and that's where you win football
The Tigers will face Vernon this Friday
in the second round of the state playoffs.
"We beat them earlier in the year on the last
play of the game." Johns said. "We hope
we'll look at it and realize we need to take
them a little more seriously and play better
than last time."
Friday's home game will be another
big one. "We're going to have our hands
full," he said.

American Education Week Nov. 13-19; Thanksgiving luncheon Nov. 17

Join us November 13-19,
2005 to celebrate American Edu-
cation Week. This year's theme,
"A Strong America Starts with
Great Public Schools," high-
lights the importance of bringing
together teachers, school staff,
parents, students, and commu-
nities in a unified effort to build
great public schools. In addition,
the theme reflects the National
Education Association's vision
of calling upon America to pro-
vide students with quality public
schools so that they can grow,
prosper, and achieve in the 21st
Resources for Parents
Students' homes and class-
rooms are the focal points of their
learning experiences from kin-
dergarten through high school.
Parents who work with teachers
and students are critical partners
in helping their child achieve suc-
cess. Parents set the example and
the tone for their child's approach
to education. When parents are
engaged, interested and support-
ive in their child's learning, the
child is more likely to succeed.
Bridging the divide between
what is learned in the classroom
to ho\\ it is relevant in day to da\
Slife is a critical role for parents.
It brines meaning to their child's
learning experience. Parents can
make learning real and ensure
that students understand the im-
portance of achieving;
Here are a fe\ ways to help
your kids:

SWednesday, Nov. 16 Girls' and Boys' Basketball pic-
tures at 1:30 p.m.

and Boys' Basketball game against Hosford, away at 3

*Read with your children reg-
ularly. Encourage them to read.
*Let your children know that
homework is their job. Make sure
that they do it.
*Volunteer at your child's
*Get to know your child's,
teacher. Attend parent-teacher
*Discuss safety issues openly.
Help make sure there are not bar-
riers to learning.
*Do you read with you child
*Do you talk with your child
about homework assignments?
*Have you volunteered at your
child's school?
*Do you know your child's
teacher and have you been to the
parent-teacher conference?
*Do \ou kno\\ what your child
thinks about the school environ-
ment?-" :
Help your student get the
most out of homework
Homework Many. students
try to avoid it, but teaching and
learning research indicates that
children who spend more time on
regularly assigned, meaningful
Homework, on average. do better

in school, and that the academic
benefits of homework increase
as children move into the upper
grades. Parents and families play
an important role in the process.
Together, families and teachers
can help children develop good
study habits and attitudes to be-
come lifelong learners.
Howcan I help-
with homework?
*Send your children to school
each day, well-rested, fed and
with a positive outlook.
*Take and active interest in
your children's schooling. Ask
specific questions about what
happens at school each day and
how your children feel about it.
*Try not to let any of your own
negative experiences keep \ ou
from supporting and encourag-
ing your children's learning. Let
them know how much you care
about education by continuing
your own learning both infor-
mally and formally, to impress
its importance upon them.
*If possible, set up a quiet,
comfortable study area with good
lighting and the school supplies
that your children need. This can
be almost anyplace in your home;
you don't need a special room.

*Set a family "quiet time"
where you and your children can
work together on homework,
reading, letter writing and play-
ing games.
*Allow your children to study
in the way each of them learns
best. For example, some children
work best when they're lying on
the floor with background music
*Make homework a daily ac-
tivity and help your children de-
velop good homework habits.

DOH updates flu vaccine-recommendations

Florida Secretary of Health,
M. Rony Francois, -M.D.,
M.S.P.H., Ph.D., has announced
new recommendations for all
Floridians.concerning flu vaccine
and distribution.
"I understand the frustrations
some Floridians have
experienced when trying to
locate flu vaccine in the last two
weeks. A recent announcement
by Florida's distributor of
Chiron manufactured flu vaccine
indicating they will only fill

a portion of their orders will
make locating flu vaccine even
more difficult for the next few
weeks," said Franqois. "Even
though Florida is anticipating a
significant shipment of vaccine
from the CDC in early December,
we need to make the best use
of the vaccine that is currently
available and offer alternatives
as appropriate. In light of
the supply challenges we are
experiencing, I am making the
following recommendations:"

Volunteer for MDA 2006 summer camp
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is searching for summer
camp volunteers who are looking for a rewarding and memorable
experience. Volunteer counselors are needed to help young people
with neuromuscular diseases enjoy fun-filled, weeklong MDA
summer camps across the country.
Volunteer counselors must be at least 16 years old and able to
lift and care for a young person between the ages of 6 and 21. Each
counselor becomes a companion to a camper with a neuromuscular
disease. Counselors help their campers with daily activities such as
eating, bathing and dressing, and in recreational activities such as
arts and crafts, swimming and horseback riding.
"Young people with neuromuscular diseases look forward to
MDA camp every year because it's a place where barriers simply do
not exist," said MDA President & CEO Robert Ross. "Our campers
get to experience indoor and outdoor activities that are adapted to
their abilities, and the campers and volunteers alike make lifelong'
friends at camp."
The experience also is memorable for the volunteers. "The magic
of MDA summer camp is especially dependent upon the caring
spirits of young volunteers who agree that the camp experience is
like no other, and that the reward of smiling faces far outweighs the
hard work," Ross added.
At no charge to families, MDA's summer camp program serves
more than 4,000 campers nationwide in some 90 weeklong sessions.
Last year, over 4,700 volunteers helped make this all possible. It
costs the Association $600 to send one child to camp.
To obtain a volunteer application or learn about other ways to.
support MDA's summer camp program, contact your local MDA
office, or call (800) 572-1717. More information about summer camp
volunteers can be found on the MDA Web site at www.mdausa.org/

As autumn arrives, camellia
season is beginning with
the beautiful floral display'
of Camellia sasanqua. Most
Va.rdeniier' are more familiar with
the sasanqua's cousin, Camellia
japonica. While it's true that the
japonicass" have larger flowers
and a more formal growth habit,
Camellia sasanqua has just as
many endearing attributes.
"Sasanquas", as they are
called in the nursery trade, are
evergreen shrubs. They have a
more open growth habit, a finer
texture and tend to be smaller
than thejaponicas. The leaves are
lustrous dark green and just the
right size to blend harmoniously
with other shrubs.
Like the japonicas, sasanquas
have been selected and
hybridized into dozens of forms
that vary immensely in flower
color, size and shape. Sasanquas
bear profusions of flowers in fall
and early winter depending on

cultivar and location. In general
they bloom before the japonicas.
The sasanqua flowering season
can begin as early as October in
Northwest Florida. The flowers
are usually smaller and more
open than the japonicas but no
less diverse in color, or degree
of doubleness. The petals fall
individually rather than as a
floral tube like the japonicas.
And there is nothing prettier than

a solitary sasanqua in full bloom
surrounded by a spotlight circle
of fallen blossoms.
Sasanquas are cold tolerant and
tend to be more sun-tolerant than
the japonicas. Most camellias,
however, grow and produce
better flowers in partial shade.
When planting any camellia,
choose a site with well drained
soil. They will not grow in wet
locations such as areas with a
high water table or hardpan.
Sasanquas prefer slightly acid
soils with a pH between 5.0 and
5.5. Fortunately, most of our local
soils are acid by nature and little
or no pH adjustment is required.
Avoid planting sites where, the
soil pH has been altered such as
around the base of masonry walls
or where seashells were used for
driveways or walks. If your soil
pH is too high (too alkaline),
plants will become chlorotic
or yellow. This occurs, because
many of the micronutrients like
iron, manganese and zinc are
tied up in alkaline soils and are
less.available to the plant.
Sasanquas are best planted
fromNovember throughFebruary
to allow the roots to become
established before summer heat.
When transplanting, set the plant
slightly higher than ground level.
Excessively deep planting is a
common cause of death in newly
planted shrubs and trees.
Sansanquas, if planted in a
proper location, require minimal
care. They require very little
pruning except for the removal
of damaged branches and long
shoots that detract from the
attractive form of the shrub. If
pruning is necessary, prune in
late winter or very early spring.
Shearing should be avoided
because it will result in a dense
layer of foliage -that blocks
light from the interior branches.
Shearing also destroys the
natural plant form.
Sasanquas are as versatile as
they are beautiful. Use them in
mixed borders and hedges where
they can provide fall color.
Single specimens planted where
they have room to assume their
natural shape make engaging
focal points on lawns and near

Florida DOH recognizes November as Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Florida Department of Health
(DOH) officials recognize No-
vember as Lung Cancer Aware-
ness Month.
"During this month, we ask
all Floridians to take an active
role in their health, by encour-
aging all smokers to consider
breaking the addiction for life,"
said DOH Secretary for Health
M. Rony Franqois, M.D.,
M.S.P.H., Ph.D.
According to the American
Cancer Society, there will be ap-
proximately. 172,570 new cases
of lung cancer in the United
SStates in 2005; about 163,510
: people will die of this disease.
About six out of 10 people with
lung cancer die within a year of
finding out they have lung can-
cer and between seven and eight
people will die within two years
of diagnosis.
Although lung cancer is one
of the most preventable cancers,
it still is of grave concern for
the DOH and for all Floridians.
According to Florida's state-
wide cancer registry, the Florida
Cancer Data System, there were
a total of 14,003 new lung and
bronchus cancers diagnosed in
2003, the most current data year
available. The total number of
deaths due to lung and bronchus
cancer in 2003 was 11.866 as
reported by the Office of Vital
Statistics. Lung and bronchus
Cancer still remains the lead-
ing cancer for newly diagnosed
cases and deaths, excluding skin
Smoking is by far the lead-
ing risk factor for lung cancer.
The Campaign for Tobacco Free
Kids reports that nearly every
adult who smokes (almost 90
percent) took his or her first puff
at or before 18-years-old. Other
risk factors include cigar and.
pipe use, secondhand smoke,
radon, asbestos, pollution, lung,
disease and a personal history.
There is no evidence that smok-
ing low tar cigarettes reduces
the risk of lung cancer. Individ-
uals need to be aware of associ-
ated health complications with
smoking such as chronic lung
disease, coronary heart disease
and stroke as well as problems
with pregnancy and birth.
Symptoms associated with
lung cancer include: a cough
that does not go away; chest
pain; coughing up blood; short-
ness of breath and recurring
bronchitis or pneumonia.<

Wildlife art and activities abound at the

10th Annual Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival

Since its inception ten years ago,
the Plantation Wildlife Arts Fes-
tival in Thomasville, Georgia
has grown to be one of the coun-
try's best wildlife arts events.
Attracting well known wildlife
artists from twenty one states
and Canada, this year's Planta-
tion Wildlife Arts Festival will
be November 19-20, 2005 at the
Thomasville Cultural Center.
The. festival also includes out-
door activities for children and
adults, such as wild animal, field
dog trial, and fly fishing demon-
Fifty-nine invited artists, in-
cluding sculptors, painters, carv-
ers, jewelers, photographers, and
master craftsmen will present
their works for sale at the festi-
val. Ronnie Wells, sculptor from
Salado, Texas, says of the event,
"The Plantation Wildlife Arts
Festival, with its southern charm
and unmatched quality, has be-
come a must for artists and col-
lectors alike. You just don't want
to miss this event!"
. Artwork fills the three floors
of the Cultural Center during the
event. Festival organizers esti-
mate that more than 300 origi-
nal paintings, 175 sculptures
and wood carvings, more than a

thousand photographs, and 1,500
pieces of original jewelry as well
as baskets, ceramics, metal work
and more from master craftsmen
will be offered for sale. "It's an
incredible selection of fine art-
work from the country's finest
wildlife artist," said Jenny Mix-
on Aiken, festival director.
The wildlife art show and sale
is enhanced by a wide variety
of events and activities that sur-
round the Thomasville Festival.
Jim Fowler of Wild Kingdom
returns each year to delight Fes-
tival visitors with a menagerie
of creatures. Separately on the
grounds of the Center, visitors
will find butterfly, reptile, spider.
fly fishing, duck decoy and field
trial dog demonstrations that fas-
cinate young and old alike.
A. wild. discovery center, a
special "naturehood" to delight
young visitors, a wild. game
cooking challenge between area
chefs, and a lecture on African
safaris round out the 'festival's
With the price of entry, visi-
tors to the festival may choose
