Revell was taken into protective cus-
tody not long after the blaze, which was
discered just after 2-a.m.-Thursday.
During a brief interview with State Fire
Marshal John Gunn. Revell admitted he

County Teacher of the Year
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
She's only been teaching five
years but Karli Borowski has al-
ready made her mark with her se-
lection last week as Liberty County)
Teacher of the Year.
Teaching wasn't her first career
choice, but she knows now that's
where she belongs.
"I went to Florida State Univer-
sity thinking I was going to go into
advertising," she explains. But after
a year of working at a Tallahassee
advertising firm, she realized it
wasn't for her.
"I didn't feel like I was making
a difference," she says, explaining

why she left a job where the future earn-
ings far outweighed any teacher's salary.
"It didn't mean anything. It was hard for
me to feel a connection with my job."
Instead, she sought out something that
would guarantee her days wouldn't be
spent watching the clock. And that's just
what she found in a roomful of energetic
While her father always urged her to
consider a teaching career, Karli says she
never gave it serious consideration until
realizing how much she didn't want to
follow her original career plan.
"I- sort of feel like fate was always
telling me to be a teacher aai.k4J as ig-
noring it." -
The 27-year-old admits that until
she became a teacher, she had little
contact with children. "I'm an only

After his wife and son were accounted
for, firefighters stood by and hosed down

could account for Revell's whereabouts.
Before the flames died, Revell walked up
from out of the woods nearby and talked
casually with those at the scene, appar-
ently not alarmed by what was happening,
He was then taken into protective
custody. After interviewing Revell
around 4:30 a.m., Gunn charged him
with arson. Revell was later transported
to Leon County and ordered to undergo

Drug investigator says
comment on flyer was
taken out of context
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
"It was taken out of context," is what Liberty
County Drug Investigator Dussia Shuler says about
a comment attributed to him on a flyer circulated
recently in Liberty County after residents found a
bag of debris from a methamphetamine lab.
The flyer featured a color photo of an open
garbage bag with debris from products using in
manufacturing methamphetamine and stated that
a law enforcement officer said, "We do not have a
drug problem here in Liberty County."
Lt. Dussia Shuler said he did take it seriously
when Bill and.Francine Fisher reported the bag of
drug manufacturing debris to his office recently,
but when he arrived at their home, he said he. was
met with the comment, "You're the one telling the.
teachers that we don't have a drug problem in Lib-
erty County." The quote was a reference to a meet-
ing with local teachers in which representatives
from several areas of the community addressed the
group, including Shuler.
Shuler tells The Journal that only half of his
statement was repeated. He says the full comment
he made was, "Liberty County does not have the
drug problems that other counties that surround
us are having and that we are lucky and blessed
because of this."
He said the debris was taken to the Liberty
County Sheriff's Department and that the FDLE
was asked to confirm that the contents were indeed
drug-related and to conduct fingerprint analysis.
After examining the bag's contents, FDLE Spe-
cial Agent Da\ e Wilson determined thatthere was.
not enough residue, in the bag to support charging,
someone with possession of listed chemicals or
manufacture of methamphetamine. In his report,
Wilson noted, "All of the items in the bag were
soaked fromrain and were not able to be processed
for latent fingerprints."
Children's Safety Act
passage is praised
WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Representative
Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) recently hailed the
passage of H.R. 4472, the Children's Safety and
Violent Crimes Act. The legislation will protect
.children against predators.
"While passage of. this legislation will do
nothing to bring back Carlie Brucia and other
children who have been brutally murdered by
predators, it can save other families the anguish of
losing a child to the most unthinkable of violent
acts," said Congresswoman Harris.
Congresswoman Harris has been passionate in
her efforts to protect children from sex offenders
and child predators. Harris authored Carlie's
Law in memory-of Carlie Brucia, an 11-year-old
Sarasota girl who was victimized and murdered
by a sexual predator in 2004.
Carlie's Law in the 108th Congress, was one of
the first pieces of legislation to include language
for harsher probation and sentencing guidelines.
Additionally, Carlie's Law (H.R. 3107) as
introduced in the 109th Congress created a national
sex offender registry using the tool of the internet
to ease coordination on a national level;
The Children's Safety Act:
*Incorporates key provisions of Carlie's Law, making
sexual crimes and crimes against children under 16 a
crime of violence for the first time ever;
*Improves the Sex Offender Registration and
Notification Program to ensure that sex offenders
register and keep current where they reside, work,
and attend school;
*Creates the Dru Sjodin National Sex Offender
Public Website to search for sex offender information
in each community;
*Requires states to notify each other when sex
offenders move from one state to .another;
Creates a new criminal penalty of up to a maximum
of 20 years for sex offenders who fail to comply with
registration requirements; and
*Protects foster children from sexual abuse and
exploitation and increase criminal penalties for child
sexual predators. -" ..

March as National
Social Work Month
TALLAHASSEE The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) recognizes March as National
Social Work Month. The entire month has been
designated to celebrate the ways in which social
workers have helped the people of Florida to live
happier and healthier lives.
"We appreciate the endless efforts of all social
workers in Florida as they follow the Department's
mission to promote and protect the safety of all
people in Florida," said DOH Secretary M. Rony
Franqois, M.D., M.S.P.H., Ph.D. "Social workers
play a major role not only in society, but they're
especially an asset here within the Department of
Social Work Month provides an opportunity to
highlight the essential roles social workers play in
alleviating some of Florida's most difficult problems.
Through education, training and dedication, social
workers provide assistance in areas such as: health,
mental health, child welfare, adolescent health,
HIV/AIDS, family violence and end of life. Social
workers perform a variety of functions ranging from
direct service provision to population-based public
-health planning and program administration.
According to the National Association of Social
Workers, "social workers have led the way in
developing private and charitable organizations to
serve people in need. Social workers continue to
address the needs of society and bring our nation's
social problems to the public's attention."
DOH recruits and employs many professional
social workers for an array of programs including:
*Infant, Maternal and Reproductive Health
*Child and Adolescent Health
*Children's Medical Services
Dr. Francois added, "social workers are the
bridge between needed resources and the individual
or family within a community. While helping
to strengthen families and communities, these
professionals weave many systems of care together
to empower others."
DOH promotes and protects the health and
safety of all people in Florida through the delivery
of quality public health services and the promotion
of health care standards. For more information on
public health social work, please visit the DOH
Web site at www.doh.state.fl.us and select social
work from the drop down box.

A week after former adminis-

DasSee and is now being run

Burnham previously worked

hard for the two months he was
with us to help us get through
the transition," Williams said.
Cochran was brought on board
d March 7.
Cochran worked with Baptist
Health System (BHS) in Ala-
bama for the past 25 years before
making the recent transition to
Blountstown. BHS includes eight
hospitals, a home care division
and the Baptist Health Centers a

He served as CEO for two of
the BHS hospitals, leaving his last

Fire marshal's office investigating Kinard house fire
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The state fire marshal's office is looking into
the cause of an early morning fire that raged
through a Kinard rental home on Adams Street
Firefighters got the call at 12:35 a.m. that the
woodframe structure was ablaze.
"When you got a fat lightered house with two
roofs, you've got problems," said Kinard Fire
Chief Doyle Daniels. He was the first to arrive
at the scene in the Oak Grove Community, where
he said he found "fire coming out of both ends of
..hehouse and-the rooftotally-,ngulfed..".
The home was unoccupied but fully furnished
and the power had been turned off. He said the
owner's daughter, Cassidy Hyde, was managing the
residence for her mother, who lives in Georgia.
While there was no chance of saving the build-
ing, volunteers had to scramble to keep the fire
from spreading to three neighboring homes. "We
had to move quick and split the crews to attack it
from both ends," Daniels said. About 20 Kinard
volunteers were assisted by a crew from the Scotts

Paul Lee Tan tells about Felix

farmer ',as very poor and had been

and went looking.
He found the animal he wanted
only to discover that his money was
not any good. The government had
ordered that all the old bills be ex-
changed for new ones. Once the
deadline was passed, all of the old
currency would be useless.
Felix enlisted the aid of some lo-

letter to the President of the Philip-

The president replied. -"The law
must be followed. Because the dead-
line has passed, the government can
no longer change your bills with the

is God's unmerited or undeserved
favor. If you have ever had someone

All have sinned and fall short of
the glory of God. All are lawbreak-

from God. But even before we were
created, knowing how we would
rebel against Him, God-purposed and

Commissioner should apologize for
not letting Odum respond to criticism
To the editor:
This is a public apology to the county commissioners for my
insisting there was a motion with a second in reference to the director
of the Liberty, Calhoun County Health Department, Mr. Odum March
Thiscase has been discussed over and over and it has been decided
by the commissioners to wait until after the investigation to take
I appreciate the two commissioners that are waiting for the
investigation to be over because there is a lot on the line. What will
happen to the Mobile Dental Unit and a myriad of other problems
that are bound to arise? I feel it would be foolish and tragic to rush
Now that I have apologized I would like John T. Sanders to publicly
apologize to Director Odum and his wife for the injustice he served
on them by not letting Director Odum speak after he was publicly
torn apart by Mr. Dubert and the-usual monologue by John T. Sanders
plus questions from L.B. Arnold. I found John T. Sanders conduct to
be totally out of line and very insulting.
The ball is in your court now John T., let's see what kind of
chairman you are.

Florida Ag in the Classroom's
Educator Advisory Panel selected
two children's books for Agricul-
ture Literacy Day this year. "Til
the Cows Come Home" by Jodi
Icenoggle and "Pig and Crow" by
"Til the Cows Come Home"
is about a cowboy who uses and
reuses a beautiful piece of leather
and sees it as a sign of unending
possibilities, and "Pig and Crow"
is a story about how a lonely pig
who loves to bake learns the value
of hard work and patience in a
modern day fable. Both books
are aimed at pre-kindergarten
through fifth grade.
Florida Ag in the Classroom
provides the books to volunteers
free of charge, and asks that
they donate the books to school
libraries after the readings. In
addition to the books, Florida
Ag in the Classroom is providing
volunteers with lessons designed
for each book for teachers, and
classroom sets of bookmarks for
students that list Florida farmers'
contributions to the state econom-
ically and environmentally.

child and I come from a really small family, so there were
no children around." Her only experience with kids was
as a teenager when she taught a Sunday School class of
She started out teaching fifth grade for two years in
Bristol. Then she got an offer from the advertising firm
where she formerly worked in Tallahassee. She felt she
had to give it another try, but after a few weeks of summer
work, realized she made a mistake. By the time the new
school year started, she was back at Tolar, this time to
begin working with fourth-graders. The sudden contrast
"of the ~t o jobs made it clear. "I realized how much I
loved teaching." she says.
"I like both grades but fourth grade is very refreshing,"
-she says. "They're such sweet children. They still want
to hug on you and just be sweet."
She finds Liberty County offers the perfect teaching
environment. "Bristol is a fantastic small town where
everyone knows what your children are up to and what's
going on k ith them. You don't ha\ e all the concerns that
bigger schools have \ ith drugs and crime."
During her shori time in education, she's learned that
she's found a special place at Tolar School. "I have talked
to a lot of teachers who have taught in other schools and-
heard lots of awful stories," she says. "I think I'll stay
hedre as long as .they'll have me."
I A native of New Jersey, Karli started seventh grade at
Robert F. Munroe School when she moved to the Florida
Panhandle with her parents. She later earned a com-
munications degree from Wesleyan College in Macon,
GA. and received her Master's in elementary education
While shie appreciates what a small community can
offer families, as a single woman, she enjoys living in
Tallahassee and carpools to work each day.
When asked if there's been a single defining moment
in her teaching career, she is quick to answer that it hap-
pened last year. "Everyone keeps telling me you have to
make education real and apply it to students' lives," she
says. Karli spent months working with a young student
who couldn't grasp long division. "Finally, toward the
end of the year, we were getting ready for a field trip."
Karli told the class that to find out how many chaperones
were going, she had to divide the total number of students
by the number of chaperones. "Oh, that's how you do
it!" said the little girl who'd had so much trouble with
the idea before.
"It made sense to her and she figured out why we're
dividing," Karli says. "It's probably the most rewarding
moment that I can remember. She was able to do it (long
division) from that point on and that was very exciting
She easily sums up why she plans to stay in the class-
room. "What better way to spend the day than with kids?
They love you no matter what. They don't judge you.
Kids are just wonderful."

It's time for the spring show.
This is a very pretty time of
year along the Gulf Coast and
a pleasant time to work outside.
Many people are anxious to get
into the garden, and gardening
does begin in earnest during
March. Just remember we are
still subject to a late frost or
Nowhere in the landscape is
guessing what the weathermay do
more critical than in a vegetable
garden. If you guess right, you
get the garden in early and beat
the hordes of summer vegetable
pests. Too early however and
you'll take a beating from a late
frost or freeze.
One way to improve the
odds is to grow plants in small
containers or seed trays in a well
lighted area, or out-of-doors,
but then bring them. in if there's
a chance of frost. These young
starts can then be planted in the
by Theresa Friday,
Agent, Santa Rosa County
vegetable garden after the danger
of frost has passed.
There are many vegetables
that can be planted this month,
both warm season and cool
season types. For a detailed list
of planting times, take a look at
the UF/IFAS publication entitled
"Florida Vegetable Gardening
Guide." It's available online at
by calling your local Extension
March is the month to think
about fertilizing your young
woody ornamentals. Trees and
shrubs that have been in the
ground less than three years
could benefit from an application
When choosing a fertilizer for
woody ornamentals select one
that has a phosphorus content
(middle number) between zero
and two. Historically, the ratio
of nitrogen to potassium for
landscape plants has been in the
range of 1:1 to 2:1. So, a 15-0-15,
a 16-2-16 or a 15-2-15 would be
a good general-purpose fertilizer
for most of your landscape trees
and shrubs. Always look for
fertilizers with thirty to fifty
percent of the total nitrogen in a
slow release form.
It's not necessary to pull
back the mulch when you apply
fertilizer. Doing so might
needlessly injure roots growing
up into the mulch. Just scatter
the fertilizer over the mulch and
water it in.
If your trees and shrubs are
older, are healthy and you are
pleased with their appearance,
then fertilization may not be
required. For healthy trees and
shrubs, fertilize the natural way.
Allow the plant's leaves to fall
around them and stay there. This
natural leaf litter will eventually
decompose and return nutrients
to the soil providing the plants
with all the slow release nutrients
The exception to this is fallen
camellia blooms. Remove spent
camellia blooms as-they fall to
help prevent petal blight, a fungal
disease which causes brown
spots on the petals and causes
the blooms to fall prematurely.
Lawns are beginning to
show signs of coming out of
dormancy. It's important now
to rake fallen leaves and pine
needles. Do not allow them to
accumulate and smother the lawn
grass. Removing the leaf cover
will increase the effectiveness of
fertilizers and pesticides.
And for those that have
ornamental grasses in the
landscape you may want to
consider pruning them. Ideally,
ornamental grasses should be
pruned just prior to new shoot
For deciduous grasses, such
as Miscanthus, the old foliage
may be completely removed
within inches of the soil. For
evergreen grasses, such as
muhly grass, the ragged, dead
tips of leaves can be removed
to neaten the appearance of the
plant. Many evergreen grasses
recover quickly from a heavier
March is a great month
for gardening but don't get
too anxious. Some of these
activities are best left for late
March or even April.

of a child's immunization history.
This centralized database not
only allows health care providers
to view a child's records, but also
allows them to provide updates,
ensuring that the most compre-
hensive immunization histories
exist in one location. Florida
SHOTS also helps doctors keep
children's immunizations on
schedule by providing remind-
ers of when shots are due, helps
prevent unnecessary duplication
of shots that children may already
have, and provides automatic
forecasting of immunizations due
based on a child's immunization
history and age.
Another step toward updat-
ing the data in the system is at-
tributed to the Suwannee River
Area Health Education Center
(SRAHEC), which has taken
on a project of utilizing gradu-
ate students in the University of
Florida (UF) Masters in Public
Health (MPH) Program to help
doctors in rural counties in the
Suwannee River region enter data
into Florida SHOTS.

'Rape. Talk about it. Prevent it.' campaign targets spring breakers
TALLAHASSEE The Flor-
ida Department of Health (DOH)
is raising awareness of sexual
violence through the campaign,
Rape. Talk About It. Prevent It.
The campaign targets females
and males ages 15 to 22-years-
old, educates students about sex-
ual violence and offers assistance
and counseling for rape victims.
According to the Rape, Abuse
and Incest National Network
(RAINN), one in six American
women is a victim of an attempt-
ed or completed rape, and 10 per-
cent of sexual assault victims are
"When on spring break, ctol-
lege students tend to concentrate
more on fun than on responsibil-
ity, and several factors, including
alcohol, contribute to drug-assist-
ed rapes," said DOH Deputy Sec-
retary for Health and State Public
Health Nursing Director Nancy
Humbert, M.S.N., A.R.N.P. "We
want to make sure .all students
enjoy spring break, but stay so-
ber, safe and alert."
It has been reported that col-
lege students flock to Florida's
beaches in the early spring to get
a tan, spend time with friends
and have a good time. Last year,
more than 540,000 spring break-
ers visited Panama City Beach,
while another 125,000 celebrat-
ed their spring break in Daytona
According to RAINN or www.
every 2.5 minutes, somewhere in
America, someone is sexually as-
saulted. According to the Florida
. Department of Law Enforcement,
6,229 forcible sex offenses were
reported in the state during the
first half of 2005.
"Women and men alike are an
important part of the solution,"
Humbert said. "Young people
need to have serious conversa-
tions, not only about helping vic-
tims, but about preventing rape in
the first place."
In an effort to spark discus-
sion, DOH will be giving away
42,000 pre-paid phone cards to
spring-breakers this March in
Miami, Key West, Panama City
Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Day-
tona Beach. When students acti-
vate the phone cards, they will
hear a message about sexual vio-
lence prevention and a toll-free
number for local rape crisis cen-
ters. Hotels will help distribute
the calling cards, which are on a
FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF
handy key chain and provide 15
minutes of free calls. Also dur-
ing spring break, radio stations
will broadcast public service an-
nouncements about rape preven-

the safety of all people in Flor-
ida through the delivery of qual-
ity public health services and
the promotion of health care
standards. For more informa-
