Hospital Board takes over ailing

facility; all jobs to be evaluated

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Physically, it's in the same place it's
always been.
Emotionally, Calhoun-Liberty Hospi-
tal has come home now that it's in local'
hands after years of operation by outside
management companies.
With the arrival Friday of the license
authorizing the Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
Board to run the hospital in Blountstown,
there's new hope for the much-belea-
guered facility that has often been on the
brink of closure.
"The license is framed and on the
wall," hospital board chairman Laddie
Williams said proudly. Board members
held a meeting with the hospital staff
Friday, issuing final paychecks and letters
advising they were terminated from their
employment with DasSee, the company

"We have a lot of rocks in
the road ahead of us but
we have a game plan."
Hospital Association Chairman
Laddie Williams, who firmly believes
Blountstown will be able to build a
new.hospital in the next 4 to 5 years.
that ran the facility for the past several
At the same time, job applications
were passed out and everyone was rehired
on a 90-day probationary period. During
that time, every job "from top to bottom"
will be evaluated, Williams said. At pres-
ent, administrator Ben Burnham will be
staying on, Williams said.
Several times during the meeting, the
hospital staff broke out in applause for

the hospital board's effort, fully aware
that the Quincy hospital which was
also run by DasSee was closed last
year and a second facility the company
runs in Apalachicola is in serious danger
of shutting down. "We don't want 100%,
we expect 110% from each and every em-
ployee," Williams told the staff Friday.

After talking with the Rural Develop-
ment Office in Tallahassee Friday, Wil-
liams said, "They're willing to help us."
He noted, "There are grants out there to
do all these feasibility studies and grants
for the engineering and design of a new
facility. We've had some of the 'higher
ups' tell us the money's there, you just
have to know who to go to to get it." And

Liberty County Commission asks

i DOH to fire Odum & rehire doctor

by Teresa Eubanks. Journal Eadtor
Fire Health Department Administrator
David Odum and reinstate the physician
he dismissed.
That's what the Liberty County Board
of County Commissioners asked the
Department of Health i.DOH) to do fol-
lo" ing a 4-0 %\oe at Thursday's meeting
in Bristol. Commissioner Jim Johnson
abstained from voting because his wife
is a health department employee.
Commission Chairman John T. Sand-
ers and Commissioner L.B. .Arnold were
outspoken in their disappointment of
Odum, v ho oversees both the Calhoun

and Liberty County Health Departments.
He fired Dr. NMari Thomas on Dec. 5 after
she alleged that prescriptions were being
written for narcotics without her approval
using her DEA number.
"I have been totally dissatisfied with
our health department for months," said
Arnold. "On several occasions we've
asked Mr. Odum to meet with the board
and that didn't happen." Arnold said he
talked with the health department direc-
tor Thursday and had hoped he would
attend that night's meeting. Odum was
not present.
Questions over Odum's management

of the health department had been sim-
mering for some time, according to Ar-
nold, but after the recent firing of the only
physician working in Liberty County,
commissioners wanted some answers.
Odum did meet with the board in
December but gave what commissioners
called "vague" responses to their ques-
tions. A DOH attorney at that meeting
told the board that there was little Odum
could say because an internal investiga-
tion was being conducted "and other
issues are going on as well." Odum read
a statement that night in which he said

Early morning fire destroys Blountstown child care center

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Blountstown day care center was
destroyed by fire early Tuesday morning
by a blaze that originated in the kitchen
area, according to Blountstown Fire Chief
Ben Hall.
Firefighters got the call around 2 a.m.
and arrived to find the Mayhaw Child
Development Center fully engulfed.
The brick building, located across the
street from Blountstown Middle School,
had heavy fire damage to the kitchen and
one playroom, according to Hall. He
said there was moderate damage to two
other playrooms as well as smoke damage
throughout the building.
Westside Fire Department assisted
Blountstown firefighters with the early
morning blaze.
State Fire Marshal Karl Morgan is
investigating the cause, which appears
to be accidental.

The business is owned by Julia Ivory
Williams of Blountstown, who said she has
been in operation at that site since 2003.

She has five employees who kept the
center open for two shifts a day, the first
beginning at 6:30 a.m. and the second

ending a 11 p.m. to accommodate cor-
rectional workers and their families, she
Williams said the facility was licensed
to care for 42 children and had about 50
on the books that were divided up be-
tween the two shifts.
She said Tuesday afternoon that she
is working on finding an arrangement
to accommodate the families that depend
on the day care service as soon as pos-
sible. "We're going to see if-we can set
up temporary family child care homes,"
she said, explaining that she hoped to
work it out so that each of her employees
could care for a few children in their own
homes until a more permanent solution
can be found.
Parents who need to contact Williams
about their child care schedules can reach
her at 674-2813 or 643-7503.

Van driver found using

county vehicle to buy

alcohol suspended five

days & put on probation
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The Liberty County School Board voted down
Superintendent David Summers' recommenda-
tion that a van driver found using a county vehicle
to buy alcohol be fired Tuesday night.
Instead, board members voted 4-1 to take alter-
nate action by ordering five days unpaid suspen-
sion and successful completion of an employee
assistance program for 42-year-old Karen Wylene
Taylor of Bristol, who was stopped Dec. 21 with
an open container of alcohol along with a 6-pack
of wine coolers and a 12-pack of beer. She is
also barred from driving any county vehicle for
a minimum of one year, will be on probationary
job status for one year and was ordered to reim-
burse the district for all unapproved mileage on
the vehicle, estimated to be over 200 miles.
The night of her arrest, a deputy saw Taylor
buy alcohol at a convenience store, and place it in
the county vehicle. When the deputy approached
Taylor around 8:40 p.m. that Sunday, he saw an
open wine cooler bottle in the console and noted
the strong smell of alcohol coming from her. She
said she picked the van up at the school admin-
istration building Friday afternoon and "used it
to go to Wal-Mart to buy some gifts."
Taylor was taken to the county jail, where she
agreed to take a breath test to determine her level
of intoxication. Deputy Wes Harsey said she
was "just below the legal limit." She was cited
for possession of an open container of alcohol,
which carries a fine of $113.50.
Ta lor has been on the substitute bus driver
list for about, a year. according to Summers, who
added that she had permission to take the van to
Marianna to make some purchases.
When school board chairman Kyle Peddie's
motion to carry out Summers' recommendation
died for a lack of a second early in the meeting,
the board went on to discuss other business.-
The issue was brought up again and board
member Doobie Hayes seconded Peddie's mo-
-tion to follow the superintendent's recommenda-
tion. At that point, boardmember James Flowers
proposed an alternative which included a five
day suspension which the board then approved,
with only the chpiran voting against the lesser
punishment. ,
During the meeting it was noted that Taylor
had been approved to take the van on what should
have been about an 88-mile trip but when the
vehicle was turned back over to the school, it
had over 300 miles on it.

Exchange student was living with Blountstown couple

Woman charged with three counts

of sexual battery of 15-year-old boy

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A husband's suspicions led to
his wife's arrest last week after
she admitted to having an affair
with a 15-year-old exchange
student who had been sharing
the couple's home since last
Kim Owings, 43, of
Blountstown has been charged
with three counts of sexual bat-
tery on the teenage boy after
her husband, Keith Owings,
confronted her about the rela-
Kim Owings confessed that
she and the boy had been inti-
mate when her husband, Keith
Owings, told her he was going to
have lab tests done on stains he
had discovered in the back seat
of their car and in their house,
according to a report from the
Calhoun County Sheriff's De-
After his wife's admission,
Owings contacted Assistant State
Attorney David House and charg-
es were filed Jan..4 following
an investigation by the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department.
According to the sheriff's
department report, the activity
between Owings. and the boy
took place in December 2005.
Owings told investigators that
there were three incidents. The
first occurred on Dec. 10 when
Owings and the teen were driv-


ing back from Panama City. Just
outside of Clarksville, Owings
said they turned down a dirt road
and had intercourse in her 2003
Kia Spectra.
When the two returned to the
Ownings' home, they had sex
again, this time on the floor of
a closet.
Owings said that they later
agreed that what they were doing
was wrong and shouldn't happen
again. That conversation led to
a kiss which ended with another
sexual encounter in the car, this
time in the area of Ocheessee
Landing Road, Owings said.
Owings' husband, who teach-
es at Blountstown High School

where the student was attending,
told authorities he became con-
cerned about what appeared to
be inappropriate activity between
his wife and the boy as early as
last November and noted there
was a lot of "hugging and touch-
ing." He said he confronted his
wife on Dec. 20 about the stain
in the car and she began to talk
about the affair, at which point
they consulted with their pastor.
Last week, while her hus-
band and the boy were at the
assistant state attorney's office,
Owings was met by deputies
at her church. She was asked
to meet officers at the sheriff's
department, where she was told
of the investigation, interviewed
and charged.
She was released on $4,500
The exchange student has
been relocated to another part of
the state, according to Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department
Investigator Ken Futch. He was
removed from the Owings home
the day of the arrest.
Owings worked as a teacher
with a grant-funded program at
Calhoun Correctional Institution
operated by Tallahassee Com-
munity College. She was fired
from that position the day after
her arrest.
The charge filed against her is
a first-degree felony.

Man arrested after 13-year-old girl

admits to three sexual encounters

by.Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
An Altha man is facing three
counts of lewd and lascivious bat-
tery and one count of resisting an
officer without violence after he
ran from a deputy who came to
his home to arrest him Dec. 29.
The night before, a deputy saw
a parked vehicle with fogged win-
dows and its engine running at
Johnny Boy boat landing.' When
he went to check on the Ford
Taurus, he found 23-year-old
Gregory Thomas Alday Jr. inside
with a young girl.
The deputy thought the girl
appeared to be 15 or 16 years
old and noticed that her belt was
on the floorboard and she kept
a jacket draped over her legs as
though trying to hide something.
The girl gave her name but a false
birthdate, saying that she was
about to turn 16.
She told the deputy the two of
them had just been riding around
that night and she had not been
wearing the belt that he saw on
the floorboard.
When asked if her parents
knew where she was, she told
the deputy her mother was aware
she was spending the night with
a friend in Altha.


agreed to take the girl back where
she was supposed to be staying
that night.
Just two or three minutes after
they drove off, a dispatcher noti-
fied the deputy that the date of
birth the girl had given him was
wrong and that she was in fact
only 13 years old.
The deputy then went to Al-
day's home in Altha and asked
him to step outside, where he
again quizzed him about his ac-
tivities with the girl. Alday then

.. .After Alday assured the dep- becamee extremely, nerypou and
uty they were "just talking," he told the deputy, "We were just

messing around." He said he
thought the girl was 15.
After contacting the girl's
mother, the deputy interviewed
the girl. At that point, she stated
that Alday knew she was only
13 and that they had intercourse
at the boat landing that night,
and had also had sex two times
When the deputy again asked
if she was sure Alday was aware
of her age, she replied that she
told him on several occasions that
she was 13 years old.
The deputy then returned to
the Alday home, where he found
Alday standing in the front yard.
After being told he was under ar-
rest, Alday asked if he could go
inside before going to jail so he
could tell his father. The deputy
accompanied him inside and saw
Alday walk toward his father,
who was sitting on the couch
when suddenly, Alday took off
without warning and ran out the
back door. After a short chase,
Alday was found on the ground
with the hands in the air stating,
"O.K., I give up." Alday was tak-
en into custody and transported to
the county jail and charged.
He is being held on $16,000
. bond and as. of Tuesday, remains
in custody.

Altha reader says bulldoze

hospital or convert

To the editor:
How many times has the
hospital changed hands?
As I remember back in the
70-80's, even into the 90's, the.
hospital had adequate doctors
and an operating room that was
usable.That place went down so
fast that a healthy person might
have gotten sick just entering the
place because it was so unclean.
In fact not to'o long ago, I was
in the emergency room. You
could see the crud on the walls
and floor. The building is a band
aid station that serves no. useful
function but charges outlandish
prices for a band aid and an
Almost every accident
or, illness is transported by
helicopter to a real hospital.
Blountstown doesn't have
cardiologists, neurologists or
other specialists., For the most
part, the facility just receives,
patients from the nursing homes
in which they could go to the
doctor's office for exams or the,
doctors could visit them in the
nursing home
Calhoun CduntY operated
the facility and was sued over
lack of retirement funds which
mostly came from us taxpayers.
Every organization that has
taken it lost money. The current
operators can't even pay utility.
costs, I don't know if they make

My suggestion is put a
bulldozier to it, find GOOD
doctors willing to locate here
then build a new state-of-the-art
facility that can serve our needs.
Otherwise, just close it up and
keep sending patients out by
helicopter to the real hospital.
That place is too nasty and the
doctors are hard to find.
If you've got a serious illness
or injury you're going to a real
hospital inTallahassee orPanama
City anyway, but be assured if
you have insurance, Calhoun-
Liberty will get a big portion for
a band aid and aspirin treatment.
With good first responders and
ambulance service as well .as
helicopters we don't have a need
for this old dilapidated, nasty,
dysfunctional nightmare.
Maybe the schoolboard could
set up shop there. Lots of office
space, might even consider
making.a school out of it. Needs
a lot of bleach and scrubbing
just to make it safe for people to
occupy it for any reason.
On second thought, the
bulldozier is the best idea for it.
I know I don't %kant to ever go
.there, and I don't want my tax
dollars wasted on it either r.
We need a new jail faciluy.
Not a bad idea build .a high
fence around it and put locks on

Don't just read the Bible, live it

sponse to Kay Lane's letter about

What is wrong, with most of

A Christian is a person that
loves those that are unlovable
and patient when patience has
run out.
Some church people need to
try living the Bible rather than

Our young people have no one
but the government to depend on
for help and that is jail or prison.
The only answer there is Jesus
and him crucified. Can Jesus be
seen in you?
In.response to Ms. Manning's
letter about Ms. Lane's letter, I
find a young lady that needed
help, before she ended up where.
she is now: There are thousands
of young men and women that
are filling our prisons up that
were crying out for help, but our
government's help is razor wire
and bondage.
The church knows and I know
that most of the time what this
does is cause anger and resent-
ment. If you send a person to
prison, when they come out they
still have the same problem they
had, it was just postponed.
You know that when a person
is bound, it is up to the church to
free them rather than condemn

solution to both problems. Give
it to the- sheriff's department.

by Ryan McDougald

Text: The book of Ephesians;
Acts 14:27; 1 Cor 16:19
A man had been stranded on a des-
ert island for a long time. One day,
he looked out upon the sea and saw a
boat! He was rescued!
He gave the party from the boat
a tour of the island. He came to a hut
explaining, "This is my home where I
ate, slept, and took refuge."
Passing another hut, he said, "This
is my church where I came to worship
and pray."
The boat captain saw a building in
the distance and asked, "What is that
The castaway said, "That's where I
used to go to church."
What comes to mind when you
hear the word "church?" If we are go-
ing to study the purpose of the church,
we need to define what it is. Do you
have fond memories of spiritual
growth, intimacy with God, and the
warmth of love and fellowship with
God's people?
Or do your thoughts about church
invoke negative feelings? Do you
think of squabbling, internal conflicts,
power struggles, cliques, social clubs,
or denominations?
Sadly, many think only of the
negative when thinking of "church."
But the church is not an organization,
a political body, a denomination, or a
social club. Church is not an elaborate
building, the place where people are
married, or the building next to the
Church, is the ekklesia. It means
the called out. It refers to people. It is
the gathering or the assembly. In Acts
14:27, they gathered, the "church" or
people together. The "church" or as-
sembly met in a house in I Cor 16:19.
In the Biblical sense, the church
is the gathering or assembly of those
who believe and worship Christ in
spirit and truth. That should invoke all
. kinds of wonderful thoughts.

What is a plough light? -R.
H., Houston, Tex.
Answer: Plough Monday
was traditionally the farmers'
first day back to work after the
holiday season. On this day,
farm laborers pulled a plough
through the village to solicit
money; sometimes they would
also ask for bread and cheese. It
was considered bad luck to re-
fuse them, since trickery might
The .first harrowing of the
fields in the New Year was con-
sidered especially propitious for
good luck. Blessing the plough
was customary in some parish-
es, and prayers were made for a
bountiful harvest. Twigs dipped
in holy water were sometimes
used to. sprinkle the tools to be
blessed, and often the ceremony
was followed by a feast.

Is dry gas necessary for win-
ter driving conditions? -F J.,
Chester, Vt.
Answer: Some drivers never
use it, while others swear by
it. If you have been driving the
same vehicle for many years
in New England winters and
haven't had a fuel line freeze
up yet, chances are you don't
need it. Many factors come
into play, including the age and
type of the vehicle you drive,
the weather conditions in your
neck of the woods, whether you
garage your car, and your par-
ticular driving habits. If you re-
fuel frequently, you are less apt
to have a problem than if you
drive infrequently or let your
gas tank get really low before
you refuel.
Essentially, fuel additives
such as dry gas are intended to
prevent condensation, which
can build up inside your gas
tank if the gas level is low and
temperature swings are extreme.
The condensation drips- into

your fuel supply. Because water
is heavier than the gasoline, the
water gets trapped at the bottom
of the tank and possibly in your
fuel line, where it can freeze. If
that happens, your car acts as
if it's out of gas -- even when
it's not -- and you're stuck until
the temperature rises again or
someone comes to your aid.
Dry gas is one preventative.
Keeping your gas tank more
than half-filled is another. Or
if the temperature dips low and
stays low, you shouldn't have to
worry-at least until the spring
In November my hens -- not
even two years old -- suddenly
decreased their egg production
by half and they're still off.
What happened? -S. T, Willow
Springs, Mo.
Answer: Any number of
things may have affected your
hens, but signs to look for in-
clude a natural period of molt-
ing, a deficiency of water sup-
plies or good feed, fright or
other stresses, or disease. Age
is another normal factor in egg
production, but at two years your
hens should still be well within
their productive range. Decreas-
ing daylight could certainly be
another factor, although it is
unlikely that it would decrease
your production by as much
as 50 percent. You might try
supplemental lighting, how-
ever, to see whether it -makes
a difference. Be sure, though,
that you're absolutely consis-
tent in your methods. A skipped
day could bring on an artificial
molt! For this reason, many hen
keepers use an automatic timer
switch. However, it's difficult to
say definitively what the trouble
might be.
Molting periods, when a hen
loses her feathers and grows

new ones, can occur at about the
age you describe for your hens.
Most often, hens begin laying at
about six months or so and con-
tinue for a year to 14 months;
they then go into a molting pe-
riod. If you got your new chicks
two springs ago, this could be
the case with your hemfs. Molt-
ing can result in a period of no
eggs for up to three months or
so. Stress-induced molting,
whether gradual or only partial,
can also reduce egg production.
Water supplies can have a
huge impact on egg produc-
tion, with a deficiency in water
of only a few hours possibly
causing a decrease in laying for
many days. Check to see that
your water units are working
properly, and that they remain
filled and accessible through-
out the day. Be sure, too, that
you have adequate feeding and
watering space per hen, so that
even the less dominant birds can
gain access to what they need.
Check your hens for signs of
being hen-pecked by more ag-
gressive birds in the flock, and
isolate any that show bloody
spots or unhealed sores. Note
whether they are pestered by
parasites or other poultry ills.
Generally, poultry diseases
will coincide with a decrease
in feeding or other noticeable
changes. Cull any sick birds, or
isolate them. Also, check your
chicken coop for adequate tem-
peratures, the absence of drafts
or overheating, or a buildup in
ammonia from unclean litter or
a lack of ventilation.

Why Not Try
Coon Hunting?

One pleasant, spring day, a few
years back, I met Willie Williams,
the gentleman who introduced me
to, and taught me everything I
know about, raccoon hunting (or
coon huntin' as we call it). I was
at Tallahassee's Lake Lafayette to
do some bass fishing from the
shoreline when I spotted Willie sit-
ting on a five-gallon bucket, fish-
ing for speckled perch with a cane
When I asked if he was having
any luck, Willie said, "They bitin'
all right."
I rigged up my line with a
"jerk-bait" and made my first cast
of the day. With just two twitches
of my rod tip, the top of the water
exploded as a monster largemouth
bass inhaled my lure. I gave the
old "bucket mouth" five seconds to
swim with the bait and reveal
which direction I needed to set the
hook. I pointed the rod tip at the
fish while I tightened my line and
then reared back.
Willie just watched in amaze-
ment as I fought and hauled in an
11.5-pounder (my biggest bass to
date). I hadn't plafined on keep-
ing any fish that day, but this baby
was going on the wall.
Within the next half-hour, I land-
ed 20 more bass, and all of them
weighed between three and seven
pounds. After the first five min-
utes, Willie just put down his pole
and kept chuckling with his infec-
tious laugh the kind of laugh that
is genuine and wins friends.
Finally, Willie and I decided to
call it a

away from the shoreline, he
offered to let me park my truck at
his place the next time I decided to
go fishing. Parking there would
shorten the walk to my fishing
spot, and I thanked him for the
kind gesture.
As we trudged up the hill, Willie
told me about his love for coon
hunting and said he had some sure-
enough coon dogs.
"They ain't nothing' like the feel-
in' that comes over you when you
hear your dogs open up on a hot
trail," he said.
He also said his prized female
treeing-Walker coonhound had just
recently given birth to a litter of
pups and asked if I wanted to have
a look at them.
"Sure," I said.
There were six puppies, around a
month old -- "saddlebacks" with
lots of distinctive black "ticks" on
their undersides. They didn't have
much white on them, like a lot of
Walkers do, and had only a touch
of brown around their faces and
Willie said if my wife and I
wanted one, we could take our
I took him up on the offer. My
lovely wife, Elizabeth, picked out
a pretty female that took a liking to
her immediately. Dakota, as we
named her, turned out to be a fine
coon dog and a great pet.
Willie had an ulterior motive
besides finding this puppy a good
home. He had found himself a
new hunting buddy to share the
coon-hunting tradition.

Meanwhile, I had made'a good
friend, got a great dog and entered
the exciting world of coon hunting.
If you'd like to try coon hunting,
you may do so with dogs at night
while using a flashlight or head-
lamp. On private property, with
written permission from the
landowner, you may hunt raccoons
year-round, but most sportsmen
prefer to hunt them during the
colder months to reduce the dogs'
chances of encountering snakes or
You are only allowed to harvest
raccoons, and opossums for that
matter, using .22 rimfire firearms
(other than .22-magnums) or sin-
gle-shot .410-gauge shotguns with
shot no larger than size 6. During
the hunt, all firearms must remain
unloaded except immediately prior
to shooting treed or bayed raccoons
or opossums,
There are no daily or seasonal
bag limits on raccoons or opos-
All dogs used to pursue raccoons
or opossums are required to wear
collars or tags which identify dog
owners and their addresses.
Hunting either species by "shin-
ing" or using lights from moving
vehicles, boats or animals is
against the law. It also is illegal to
transport wild-trapped live rac-
coons within, into or from Florida.
So if you're looking for a new
and exciting hunting opportunity,
get ahold of a good coon dog, grab
your .22, a flashlight and a pair of
hip waders and take to the swamps.
Here's wishing you a happy New
Year and good hunting. If you
can, do like Willie did and intro-
duce someone new to a different
kind of hunting pass the tradition
on. As always, have fun, hunt
safely, and we'll see you in the

Tony Young has a mother/daughter
pair of treeing-Walker coonhounds
and plans to keep their bloodline
going. He enjoys hunting with
them, and the dogs make great pets
for his two daughters.

that's just what Williams is con-
centrating on learning more about
right now. He acknowledges that
the unpaid position he's held on
the hospital board since 1988
sometimes costs him a little
money of his own, but, "I want
to put something back into the
But the biggest hurdle of all
will be getting through the next
four to five months, until the
hospital starts getting reimburse-
ment checks from Medicare and
Medicade. "We've got a cash
flow crunch to get through at
that point," he said. While one
bank has indicated that it might
help with a loan to bridge that
gap, Williams said the board is
also turning to the community for
financial assistance.
A hospital fund had been set
up and anyone who would like

to donate can do so by sending
a check to The Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital Association, Inc. at P.O.
Box 423, Blountstown, Florida
32424. Williams encourages any
financial donations "from a dollar
on up," he said. With the income
tax deadline just a few weeks
away, he noted that donors can
get a receipt showing their money
was given in support of a not-for-
,profit facility, which will make
their donation tax deductible.
He said the board will also be
looking to the two counties as
well as the City of Blountstown.
for some financial help. He
pointed out that without the
hospital, the cost would be even
greater with the loss of jobs, the
fall of property values and the
added expense to local ambulance.
services. "Each trip to Tallahas-
see takes a crew and ambulance

out of circulation for three hours,"
he said. Without the hospital,
both counties would have to add
ambulances and crews at addi-
tional expense. "It's just plain
simple that we've got to have this
hospital," he said.
One of the first on-site prob-
lems the board will tackle is
restocking medicine. "We need
to get enough medication on the
premises to be able to handle vari-
ous emergencies," he said, noting
that was one of the reasons one
local doctor ended his association
with the hospital. "That doctor
said he'd be back to help when
things got straightened up." Wil-
liams said.
Next, the board plans to start
meeting with area doctors who
long ago gave up trying to work
with a facility plagued by short-
ages in supplies and equipment.

"We've got to have their support,"
Williams said, hoping to find a
way to mend fences with those
who have been unable to work
with past hospital management
Also near the top of his agenda
is to get the CT Scanner up and
running. The hospital owes the
company they got the machine
from about $200,000. "They've
got the machine in there but
it's not hooked up because they
wouldn't pay the fees to get it
running," he said. The machine
has been at the hospital for about
a year. Not only will it pro\ ide a
valuable service for patients, the
scanner will be an income genera-
tor for the hospital through reim-
bursement programs, he said.
He's also aware of the impor-
tance of being a strong part of the
panhandle medical community.

It's important to forge a good
working relationship with all area
hospitals, Williams said. "My
game plan is to prove to them
we're going to do something
over here."
"We have a lot of rocks in the
road ahead of us but we have
a game plan," said Williams,
pointing out that he believes
Blountstown will have a new
hospital built in the next four or
five years.
Making sure the facility stayed
open and saving the jobs of the 85
full- and part-time employees has
kept the four-member hospital
board busy. Williams, along with
Marilyn Russell, Laban Bontrag-
er and Ralph Whitfield, have their
hands full but are optimistic.
"We've made our commitment
and we're going to do it," Wil-
liams said.

Thomas' firing was based on
"employment issues" and that
there is "potential for litigation."
Board members are angry over
one of the answers he gave that
night. When asked if a doctor
would be available to cover for
the fired .physician, Odum said
Dr. Carol Sutton "will be working
with us during the transition."
Commissioners took that to
mean Sutton would be practicing
as a physician at the health depart-
ment. They have since learned
she is overseeing the paperwork.
"The only way she's covering for
Dr. Thomas is by protocol," Sand-
ers said. "He (Odum) told us she
was covering (for Dr. Thomas)
and she's no more covering than
I am," he said. "If you've got a
cut-off finger, you're not looking
for protocol. You're looking for
a doctor."
He added, "We have been mis-
led by Mr. Odum. My working
relationship with him is damaged
and beyond repair. We can no
longer communicate."

At Thursday's meeting, Arnold
told the board he talked with
Odum earlier that day and told
him they would be calling for his
resignation. Arnold told Odum
the board would not ask for his
job if he would get Thomas re-_
instated with back pay. Arnold
said the health department direc-
tor told him he'd like to but "I
couldn't do that."
According to Arnold, Odum
said he fired Thomas because "he
was scared that with her attitude
.she might harm a patient." That
comment drew laughter from the
audience gathered for last week's
commission meeting. The group
included many of Thomas' pa-
tients who are upset they don't
have a doctor to go to.
Arnold said board members
have been unhappy with the op-
eration of the health department
under Odum's leadership and
cited the following reasons:
-The Women, Infant and
Children's (WIC) Program was
-The food stamp program was
-Odum "has fired several of
our Liberty County residents
who've had to seek employment
outside the county"
-Odum "refused to help us
with our mosquito control pro-
-When the board hoped to save
$10,000 a year by having some-
one at the health department sign
off on ambulance runs instead of
hiring a doctor to do so, they were
told the health department would
take on the task only if they got
the $10,000
-When the board asked -Odum
if the health department could
help with Liberty County's ambu-
lance billing, they were told they
would do so for a percentage of
the money collected
The firing of the doctor "was
the straw that broke the camel's
back,' Arnldt said, noting thatfor
years, Liberty County has paid

between $55,000 and $60,000 a
year to fund the jointly-operated
Calhoun-Liberty Health Depart-
ment while Calhoun County has
contributed "about $12,000" each
year. "We did the paying and got
the shaft," he said.
Liberty County's funding for
the health department has dropped
some in recent years. Last year,
the board allotted $39,500. They
have approved $46,000 for next.
year, according to the Clerk's

A letter was sent to the DOH
in Tallahassee Friday asking that
Odum be fired and Thomas re-
hired. The board does not have
hiring authority over the health
department but they hope DOH
officials will look seriously at
their request.
At last week's meeting, Arnold
added a motion to bar Odum
from the Liberty County Health
Department building. "If he's got
personal things, he can get a nurse
to return them to him," he said.
Last month, the board asked
the state attorney's office to inves-
tigate if prescriptions were being
illegally issued from Calhoun-
Liberty Health Department after a
pharmacist brought it to Thomas'
attention that an unusual number
of narcotics were being prescribed
using her DEA.number.
Nurse practitioners routinely
write prescriptions for patients,
but there are limitations on what
drugs they can prescribe. Thomas
said she learned her DEA number
was being used by.another health
department employee and imme-
diately sent letters to panhandle
pharmacies alerting them not to
fill prescriptions written under
that employee's name.
Commissioners said Thomas
was fired because she is a whistle-
blower who brought attention to a
problem in the health department.
"I have yet to find one wrong
thing'she did," Arnold said.
State Attorney Willie Meggs
said Monday that his office was
waiting for a DEA analyst to
review the prescriptions in ques-
tion. "We're going to check all
the prescriptions written under
her (Thomas') DEA number to
see if they were all legitimate,"
he said. "Nurse practitioners can
only write prescriptions with the
knowledge and approval of the
doctor. If the doctor tells them
not to write the prescription, that

ends it," he said. The investiga-
tion does not deal with personal
issues, he pointed out. "What
we're looking for is making sure
they're not prescribing narcotics
unneccessarily," he said.

Odum and a second employee
involved in the investigation (who
is not named here because no
charges have been filed) have not
replied to calls from The Journal
to ask for their response to the ac-
tion taken by the commission.
Sanders said he believed both
the doctor and the second person
included in the investigation "are
excellent employees looking out
for the best interest of the public."
He added, "They just got caught
up in the mismanagement of the
Commissioner Albert Butcher
said he has received more phone
calls from constituents about this
issue than any other. He cautioned
.his fellow board members, not
to use the situation to retaliate
against the administrator over
past issues. "As far as our health
department being in bad shape,.
I don't know that it is," he said.
"Right now, I'd like for the in-
vestigation to conclude and let us
have the findings."
He added, "Whatever hap-
pens, there's going to have to be
some changes."

"We have a very critical ,itua-
tion here with a doctor not being
at the health department," Brenda
Gail Clay told commissioners at
Last week's meeting. Clay, who
is director of the Liberty County
Senior Citizens Association, said
the lack of a doctor threatened.
the viability of the community's
transit program. "Some of the
transit drivers are on blood pres-
sure medicine. If they can't get
their medicine, they-can't drive,"
she said, indicated that the only
choice would be to fire those driv-
ers unable to get their medicine.
Also in the audience that night
was Dr. Mari Thomas, who told
the board that not only was she a
victim of the situation, but "All
of the people in the county are
victims." She urged the board to
find a way to get a physician to
fill in at the Bristol office as soon
as possible, noting that over 5,000
people in the two-county area get
assistance from the two health
departments and right now, "They
can't get their medication."

Though cancer is claiming
more and more victims each year,
heart disease remains the foremost
cause of death in Americans. Ac-
cording to the American Heart As-
sociation, 70.1 million Americans
suffer from some type of cardio-
vascular disease, with roughly 10
percent of those sufferers being
victims of a heart attack and nearly
5 million of those suffering from
congestive heart failure.
Perhaps the most difficult ob-
stacle to overcome with respect
to heart failure is making. people.
know they have it. Despite the
implied totality of its name, heart
failure does not mean your heart
just stops. Rather, heart failure
gradually develops and taxes your
heart to the point where it needs
to work especially hard just to
maintain normal function, such
as pumping your blood. It is typi-
cally the result of a heart attack or
an extended period of high blood
There are distinctive charac-
teristics that act as indicators of
heart failure. For instance, trouble
breathing when resting or lying
down, and waking up breathless
in the middle of the night can be
Another symptom not to take
lightly is fatigue. Those who
might be on the doorstep of heart
failure tire more easily than is
normal for someone their 4ge and
might experience edema, a swell-
ing of the feet, ankles or legs. If
you find yourself or a loved one to
be tiring despite a lack of activity,
consult a physician and ask for a
cardiovascular examination.
Excessive' coughing is also a
telltale sign of heart failure. A
hacking cough when lying in bed
or a cough that produces ample
and continuous mucus is a sign
that heart failure might be setting
in. While each of these symptoms
might seem commonplace in the
elderly, they all imply something
worse than just "getting old," and
further attention is necessary if

you or someone you love is ex-
hibiting these symptoms.
Though heart failure is typi-
cally not recognized until its more
advanced stages, there are a num-
ber of precautions one can take to
limit one's risk of heart failure.
One such precaution is ex-
ercising at a rate and frequency
prescribed by your doctor. Consult
with a physician, as opposed to an
athletic or personal trainer, and
work with him or her to develop
an appropriate routine.
Another thing to do is watch
your weight. Large fluctuations in
body weight can be extremely tax-
ing on your heart, whether you're
dropping pounds or gaining them.
Maintaining a steady weight or, if
you're trying to lose weight, drop-
ping pounds gradually allows your
heart to tackle a more predictable
Limiting your intake of salt can
also go a long way in reducing
your risk for heart failure. Sodium
has long been linked to high blood
pressure, something that is a direct
cause of heart failure.
It is wise to remember the prev-
alence of heart failure. Though its
name might imply fatality, there
are a number of steps you can
take to lower your risks of falling
victim to heart failure.

Different pruning methods

needed for different plants

January can be a cold month
along the Gulf Coast. We are,
however, likely to have days or
weeks of balmy weather. Don't
be fooled by a few warm days,
there is still a lot of cold weather
yet to come.
Getting anxious to prune your
shrubs? Unfortunately, so are a
lot of other gardeners. It's too
early for most shrub pruning and
in some cases it isn't even neces-
Prune your shrubs only if
there is a need. Reasons for
pruning are to remove dead or
damaged parts, control plant size
and form, train young plants, in-
fluence flower or fruit produc-
tion, rejuvenate old plants and to
remove hazardous branches.
Timing is everything when
it comes to pruning. In order
to properly prune your shrubs,

early July.
Y, The summer flowering shrubs,
ural on the other hand, flower on cur-
ounty rent season's growth and should
be pruned during the dormant
groups season. These include crape
mended myrtle, hibiscus, oleander, rose,
e groups vitex, althea and abelia. Due to
flower- our fluctuating winter tempera-
owering tures it is often better to wait un-
til February before doing major
ig flow- pruning. Fall or early winter
azaleas, pruning can stimulate growth
an haw- too early, resulting in cold dam-
and the age during some years.
ip forms With the recent freezes, signs
summer of cold injury are evident on lan-
.g them tana, firespike, pentas and other
y major tender perennials. Don't over-
soon af- react and prune these plants too
time for early. Wait until early spring be-
iring the fore selectively removing dead
for ex- and damaged branches. Right
leted by now, it would be impossible to
determine the degree of dieback
and the right places to make
pruning cuts.
Some of the more tender
landscape plants such as banana,
cassia, gingers, some types of
hibiscus and many of the tropi-
cal perennials may have been
killed back to the ground. Avoid
the urge to prune these down to
the ground. Allowing the dead
foliage to remain in place can
actually insulate, or. protect .the
living portions of the plant and
increase the chance of these re-
turning next spring.
Evergreens such as holly, box-
wood, ligustrum, juniper, podo-
carpus and waxmyrtle can be
pruned any time. Even though
they can be safely pruned during
any season, fall is the least de-
sirable time because of potential
injury to new growth.
-Some pruning can be done
now. Muscadine grapes, oaks,
maples, hickory and other large
shade trees can be pruned during
the dormant season or just fol-
lowing a growth flush.
Almost all pruning of decidu-
ous fruit trees should be done
during the late winter or very
early spring (before bloom).
Since pruning may reduce cold
hardiness, it is important to de-
lay pruning until the likelihood
of extreme cold passes.
Different training systems are
used for different types of fruit
trees. To learn more about how
to properly prune your fruit trees,
check out the UF/IFAS publica-
tion entitled "Deciduous Fruit
for Northwest Florida". It's
available online at www.edis.

your local Extension Office.

DOH recognizes January as

Cervical Health Awareness Month

da Department of Health (DOH)
and the American Cancer So-
ciety combine efforts to raise
awareness about cervical health
throughout the month of Janu-
ary. The main objective of this
collaboration is to reach out to
unscreened population groups
throughout Florida.
Unscreened women fall in
several categories including the
uninsured, ethnic minorities and
the poor, particularly those in ru-
ral areas. Regular check-ups may
reduce the risk of cervical-cancer
later in life since it is highly cur-
able if caught early.
"Cervical Health Awareness
.Month is not 'simply about sta-
tistics. It is about encouraging
women to be responsible for
their health and to visit their doc-
tors regularly," said DOH Sec-
retary M. Rony Francois, M.D.,
M.1S.P.H., Ph.D. "We are proud
to have initiatives such as the
Department's Florida Breast and .
Cervical Cancer Program that
helps older, uninsured, or poor
women maintain cervical health.
By helping remove these barri-
ers, we offer assistance that leads
to healthier, happier lives."
The Breast and Cervical Can-
cer Program began in 1994 and
has helped over 27,000 women
receive Pap tests. The UJS:Pr e-
\ventive Services Task Force rec-
ommends-that women begin hav-
ing regular Pap tests and pelvic
exams at age 21, or within three
years of the first time they have
sexual intercourse. National
guidelines recommend that af-
ter a woman has a Pap test each
year for three years in a row. If
test results are negative, she can
then get a Pap test every 2-3
years. Women should discuss the
appropriate schedule with their
health care provider.
Important facts about cervical
cancer include:
*Any woman who has a cervix
can get cervical cancer, especial-
ly if she or her sexual partner has
had multiple sex partners.
*Most often, cervical cancer
develops in women age 40 or
*Abnormal cells in the cervix .
and cervical cancer don't always
cause s mptoms. especially at
first. That's why getting tested.
for cervical cancer is important,
even if there are no symptoms.
*When it is found early and
treated, cervical cancer is highly
*Most deaths from cervical
cancer could be avoided if wom-
en had regular checkups with the
pap test
Experts agree that infection
with certain strains of the human
papilloma virus (HPV) (vWhich is
sexually transmitted) is one of.
the strongest risk factors for cer-
vical cancer.
