Doctor found for health department but Liberty

Co. Commission still wants administrator fired


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
County Health Administrator
David Odum isn't employed by
the Liberty County Board of
County Commissioners, but that
isn't stopping them from trying
to fire him. Again.
With board member Jim John-
son abstaining because his wife
is a health department employee,
the remaining four board mem-
bers voted to ask a second time
that Odum's boss, Dr. Bonnie
Sorensen, fire him from the Lib-
erty County Health Department.
Before cutting off discussion
abruptly at Thursday's meet-
ing, Board Chairman John T.
Sanders told Odum, who also
oversees the Calhoun County
Health Department, "Go on-to
Calhoun County and finish out


your retirement over there."
Sanders then told him to call
Sorensen to tell her what the
board had decided.
.'What. I hear you say is,
'Please call Dr. Sorensen and
have her agree with you that I
should be fired.' Is that what
you're saying?" Odum asked. "I
think somebodyy other than me
ought to call."
"You took that totally wrong,"
Sanders replied. "That's the
reason you and I can't work
together." Sanders then said, "I
want to help by keeping you in
Calhoun-County."
"You want to help me by
calling my boss and having me
fired," Odum responded.
Sanders quickly called a five
minute recess and when board


members returned, they took up
a new topic.
Before that heated exchange,
Odum got an opportunity to
respond to criticisms leveled at
him during last month's meeting
about his management of the
Liberty County Health Depart-
ment, but his statements fell on
deaf ears.
Sanders is unhappy that Dr.
Mari Thomas was fired earlier
this year and charges that Lib-
erty County residents are not
considered for jobs at the health
department. In an earlier meet-
ing, Odum explained that hiring
is done through the state and any
qualified applicant is welcome
to apply.
Denied a chance to speak


at the March meeting after
repeated criticism from two
audience members as well as
Sanders, Odum was allowed
to read a prepared statement at
Thursday's meeting. In a presen-
tation, which was several pages
long, Odum made the following
points:
-Dr. Carole Sutton has agreed
to return as full-time medical
director for the health depart-
ment. She will start work after
someone is hired to replace her
position at Gulf Coast Medical,
which could take four to five
months.
-The National Health Service
Corps had earlier approved the
Liberty County Health Depart-
ment as a site for health profes-
sion recruitment. With the cur-


rent issues ongoing between the
commission and health depart-
ment, combined with a record
of consistently declining con-
tributions from the commission
toward the health department,
that designation was recently
withdrawn. "This is a major
blow to our ability to recruit
and could adversely impact our
newly-established children's
dental program," he said.
-He explained that a number
of private physicians have tried
to maintain a local practice in
Liberty County, and with the
exception of the late Dr. Lopez,
no one has stayed very long.
-While the Liberty County
Health Department was trying to
grow. the Liberty County Com-

Altha man charged with second DUI


after running through sheriff's fence


by Teresa Eubanks, JournalEditor
When William Barfield, 47,_
of Aliha \\ as arrested on a DUI
charge April 3 after nearly caus-
ing an accident. he \ as taken to.
the Calhouni County Jail and held
for several hours before getting a
conditional release.
SSeven das .later, William
1.Barfield \\as arrested again for
DUI. This time. there was a
crash and property damage, and'
because drinking and driving vio-
lates the conditions of release, he
is being held without bond. And
it probably didn't help that the
property he damaged belonged
to Calhoun County Sheriff David
Tatum.
According to FHP Trooper
Phillip Spaziante, Barfield was
driving along State Road 73
North, near Ten Mile Creek,
when he lost control of his 1990
F-150 Ford pickup Sunday while


driving near the sheriff's 'prop-
erty. Barfield told deputies at the
scene a deer had run out in front
.of him.
The pickup left the road and
went onto the east shoulder with
the passenger side of the vehicle
brushing past several trees. The
truck then hit a drive aN aptei hat
stood about 60 feet off the road,
knocking it down and pulling up
several landscape timbers before
pushing the gate into an embank-
ment. His truck traveled off the
road for 200 feet before coming
to a stop.
When deputies arrived to as-
sist Barfield, they noticed his
speech was slurred and smelled
the strong odor of an alcoholic
beverage on him.
Barfield escaped with only
a cut to the arm, which did not
require treatment, and was taken
into custody. He refused to take


Reward offered for info leading


a field sobriety test but did take
an alcohol breath reading, which
found he was three times the legal
limit, Spaziante said.
Damages to his truck were set
at approximately $2,000, while'
replacement costs for the cattle-
guard gate and landscaping tim-
bers was expected to be around
$500, the trooper said.
Spaziantewitnessed a close
call on the road with Barfield the
previous Monday when the two
crossed paths on Hwy. 71. The
trooper was driving by in his
patrol car around 4 p.m. when-
he noticed Barfield, who was
driving his truck northbound in
the south acceleration lane from
Peacock Road onto Hwy. 71. At
that time, a car was attempting to
make a right turn from Peacock
Road onto 71 South and another
vehicle was southbound on Hwy.
71. "Basically, he cut off the
southbound car on Hwy. 71, went
into the acceleration lane and-

Back and colon cancer take Sherrie Kever out of the classroom


Hosford School teacher retires after 33


years teaching the youngest students


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Hundreds of Liberty
County's youngest stu-
dents have passed through Sher-
rie Kever's classroom at Hosford
School. They've listened to her
read stories, heard her laugh
often and been the recipient of
an understanding smile as she
guided them through their earli-
est educational experiences..
Now, 33 years after she
stepped into her first class-
room, she's reluctantly reached
a phase of life so many people
look forward to retirement.
Sherrie, who is 54, had hoped
to continue teaching for several
more years, but a diagnosis of
cancer and the ongoing effects
of the illness led her to give up
her teaching duties to concen-
trate on her own health.
Five years ago, her husband,.
Colin, died of a rare form of
thymus cancer. A year later, her
doctor discovered cancer in her
colon and lower back. She took
chemotherapy and radiation
and believed she had it beat it,
butW2 1/2 years after she was first
diagnosed. the cancer returned.
"I thought it had gone a%%ay,
but I began getting sick again.
I had a lot of pain in my lower
back and stomach and went for
a checkup," she said.
Despite her illness, she con-
tinued toiteach until this past
December.
For more than three de-
cades, she's worked at-

She admits that many times
teaching such young students
could be exhausting because,
"They never quit asking why."
But, she added, that's also what
makes teaching fun. Her advice
for future teachers is simple:

While she has some bad
days as well as good days, she
welcomes phone calls and vis-
its when she's up to it. At this
point, she said her goal is "Just
to stay strong and stay firm in
the beliefs that I have."
She takes comfort in the
fact that her three adult sons


can handle whatever the future
brings for her. Her eldest, Zach-
ary, is currently in Hong Kong
where he works in international
business. Her youngest, Mason,
is in Colorado to serve his two-
year mission for the Mormon
Church. He is due home in
November. Her middle son,
Logan, lives in Rock Bluff and
works for Georgia-Pacific.

think they're strong children.

friends are holding a fund-
raiser for her on Friday,
April 21, to help with her medi-
cal expenses. She's not sure if
she will be able to attend, but
she hopes to. "I still like to get
out and see friends," she said.
"I haven't lost that desire, I just
don't always have the strength."
If the weather's good and if
she's having a good day, she
.said she might be able to attend
the barbecue lunch sale and cake
sale. A site will also be set up
at Hosford School as well as
Whitfield's Insurance across
from the courthouse in Bristol.
As for her future, she calmly
recognizes, "Whatever happens,
just happens. I pray more for
comfort for my family that
they'll be able to understand
and deal with this."
Near the end of the conver-
sation she pointed out, "I've
lived a very simple life and I've
enjoyed it."
She added, "I try not to cry
and I try to be strong. If I ever.
need help, all I have to do is
make one phone call to any of
my many friends. It's the most
reassuring thing to know that
people love me and are there
for me."

THE MYSTERY
OF HIS WILL
Text: Ephesians 1:1-14
Billy Graham once told a story
about an African woman whose hus-
band was not a Christian. Her faith in
God drove her husband away.
The husband began to hate his wife
and planned to kill her. His motive
would be to accuse her of stealing his
keys. They were the keys to his bank,
the house, and the car. He left one day
and threw his keys into the Nile River.
He found a tavern and began getting
drunk.
Meanwhile, his wife went to the
market and bought a large Nile perch.
As she "gutted the fish, to her aston-
ishment, there were her husband's
keys. How had they gotten there?"
She cleaned them and put them back
in their place.
The banker came home that night
pounding on the door shouting,
"Where are my keys?" The woman got
out of bed, retrieved the keys, and gave
them to her husband. When he saw the
keys, he "immediately became sober
and was instantly converted. He fell
on his knees sobbing, asked for for-
giveness, and confessed Jesus Christ
as his Lord."
Scripture says, "He made known
to us the mystery of His will...(NIV)"
Barnes says the word for "mystery"
means, "something into which one
must be initiated before it is fully
known; and then anything which is
concealed or hidden."
The mystery is God's intent to send
Christ to die on the cross for our sins,
forgive us of our sins, fill us with His
Spirit, and adopt us as children.
It is not a mystery because it is be-
yond our comprehension. But it is hid-
den to the world of unbelievers. Once
we respond in faith to Christ, the hid-
den mystery suddenly becomes stark,
unmistakable, reality. The utter real-
ization is that God had planned this for
you since the beginning of time.

14, announced Kevin Kelley,
SED of USDA's Farm Service
Agency (FSA). Sign-up for the
program was scheduled to end
March 27.
"This program helps produc-
ers overcome cotton industry
losses caused by Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and
Jeanne in 2004," said Kelley.
"Extending the sign-up period
gives producers and gins the
extra time they need to enroll
in this program."
The lengthy application pro-
cess could cause some cotton
producers and ginners to miss
the sign-up so USDA is extend-
ing the deadline, said Kelley.
The CPP provides up to $10
million in assistance to pro-
ducers and first-handlers of the
2004 cottonseed crop. Cotton
producers and first-handlers
must operate in those coun-
ties that received presidential
disaster declarations caused by
2004 hurricanes 'and tropical
storms.
First-handlers of cottonseed
can apply for CPP funds. First-
handlers are gins that have eli-
gible payment quantities. Ap-
plications, instructions and a
complete list of eligible coun-
ties receiving Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA) designations for indi-
vidual disaster assistance are
available by request and online
at www.fsa.usda.gov/dafp/psd/
Cottonseed.htm.
USDA calculates the pay-


meant rate (dollars per ton) by
dividing total program funds
($10 million) by the total eli-
gible payment quantity (tons)
of cottonseed. The total pay-
ment to an eligible applicant
can not exceed $114 per ton of
cottonseed multiplied by the
applicant's total eligible pay-
ment quantity.
The CPP fact sheet and all
eligibility requirements are
available at www.disaster.fsa.
usda.gov/agas04.htm.
Cotton gins and producers
can contact their local USDA
Farm Service Agency (FSA)
office for more.information.
Authorization for CPP comes
from the Military Construction
Appropriations and Emergency
Hurricane Supplemental Ap-
propriations Act (2005).
Applications must be sent
by fax to (202) 690-1536 or by
overnight mail to FSA's Price

Spring burns help wildlife habitat and wild turkeys


from the National Wild Turkey Federation
During the past few weeks,
USDA Forest Service fire
managers, state wildlifebiologists
and private landowners have lit
their oil-filled drip torches and
commenced prescribed burning
practices in the forests and fields
of the Southeast.
They'll keep starting
controlled burns as long as
weather conditions allow.
Prescribed burns are safe and
manageable fires that burn pine
needles and dead branches on
the ground, which can build to
dangerous levels and lead to
catastrophic wildfires.
However, with spring turkey
hunting and wild turkey nesting
season just around the corner,
many folks wonder why land


managers burn the woods
where wild turkey nests may be
destroyed.
"Prescribed fire is a wonderful
tool and mimics a natural
process," said Dr. James Earl
Kennamer, the National Wild
Turkey Federation's senior
vice president for conservation
programs. "Introducing fire
kills unwanted brush so natural
grasses. and plants that benefit
wildlife can grow. Without
prescribed fire, unwanted plants
and trees will overtake the
forest floor and hazardous fuels
will build up causing the forest
floor to become susceptible to
devastating wildfires."
Prescribed burning is most
effective during late March and
early April when shrubs and


saplings start to bloom. These
months are also prime for spring
turkey hunting and when turkeys
are starting to nest. A common
misperception is that prescribed
burns are detrimental to wild
turkey populations because they
burn lots of wild turkey nests.
However, wildlife biologists
know the years of improved
nesting and brood habitat
provided by prescribed burning
is far more important, to the
turkey population than the loss
of a few nests.
"Research in northcentral
Louisiana shows that most hens
nest somewhere less brushy than
areas selected for burning," said
Brian Zielinski, NWTF regional
biologist. "Hens prefer to nest
in thick grassy areas with little

brush where they-can blend in
and feel safe. They really like to
nest in prescribed bums that are
2 or 3 years old."
While it is true that some nests
are lost during prescribed bums,
the benefits of improved habitat
outweigh the few burned nests.
In fact, even if a nest is lost, hens
will likely renest.
"Up to two-thirds of hens
that lose their nests will renest,"
said Zielinski. "There's no real
reason to believe that prescribed
burning will hurt wild turkey
populations. Reality is that
prescribed burns improve wild
turkey habitat and that helps
populations."
A PLAN TO HELP
"Our volunteers really believe
in keeping the forests healthy,"
said Kennamer. "They know
that in order for their kids and
grandchildren to enjoy what we
have now, they have to help get
work done on the ground."
Since 2002, NWTF state and
local chapters have spent more
than $228,000 in 23 states to help
fund prescribed fire projects.
Through the NWTF's Hunting


Heritage Super Fund, volunteers
donate money to further the
work that government agencies
do on the ground.
"As nonprofit conservation
groups continue to work with
state and federal wildlife and
land management agencies, the
trend of devastating wildfires
will decline. However, our
forests must be actively managed
or catastrophic wildfires will
continue to unnecessarily burn
homes, property and forests."

prescribed burning, contact

'Indian Office' loses space

in Calhoun Co. Courthouse
To the editor:
I have the sad news to report that use of the "Indian Office"
located on the third floor of the Calhoun County Courthouse has
been rescinded by Clerk of Court Ruth Attaway. She stated that due
to space in the courthouse being in short supply, the office was given
to the Calhoun County School Board to store'files.
Attaway stated that she did not know who to contact about the
office ( I personally had left three messages by phone to her, and
even went by her office in person once), so she called the only person
she knew, a local business owner who often calls himself a "Creek
Chief." Attaway stated that this person said he wasn't interested in
the office anymore, so I assumed it was abandoned.
After this Indian leader and a Creek group from Walton County
finally admitted that they had no historical or current connection
or control over the Indian community of the Blountstown area, the
door locks were changed by county officials and new keys were
given to representatives of the Apalachicola River Catawba Indian
Tribal Organization (ARCITO). Though representatives of ARCITO
repeatedly attempted to contact Attaway over the last two months,
held two board meetings in the office, and also had contacted county
officials in regard to facilitating moving more office equipment,
Attaway decided that the office was abandoned and would be put to
better use to store old school files.
This area has the highest per-capita Native American population
in the Southeast, and in recognition of this, over the past two years
ARCITO has worked tirelessly to provide social, educational and
economical assistance and referrals to persons of Native American
ancestry in all six counties which border the Apalachicola River.
Though currently homeless we will continue to assist the over 100
families in this area who benefit from our continued services.

crucial to the success of Kids'
Fishing Clinics. Funds to
support these events come from
the sale of Florida recreational
saltwater fishing licenses, the
federal Sport Fish Restoration
Program and public donations.
The clinics demonstrate
to children the importance of
protecting marine habitat and


following fishing regulations to
preserve marine fish abundance.
These principles are taught
using five separate education
stations that participants must
complete before they can fish,
including good angler resource
conservation, touch tank (where
fish live), fishing tackle, knot-
tying and casting stations.
The young anglers are then
given a rod and reel and allowed
to fish from a pier or other
appropriate site. Volunteers with
Polaroid cameras take pictures
of participants with their fish
for keepsakes, and all fish are
released to help demonstrate
proper catch-and-release
techniques. Safety messages
are also promoted throughout
the events. A schedule of classes
is available online at MyFWC.

Don't buy kids mallards for Easter
With Easter approaching, many parents consider purchasing cute
little mallard ducklings as gifts for their children. The Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) suggests buying
your child a bunny rabbit or a stuffed animal instead.
"Although these ducklings might make nice pets while they're
young, they can live 10 years and quickly outgrow the cute and
fuzzy stage, leaving full-size droppings on your patio and outdoor
furniture," said FWC waterfowl biologist Diane Eggeman. "When
this happens, parents and children often grow tired of caring for
these pets and decide to turn them loose into the wild."
What they may not realize is this is illegal and putting Florida's
native wildlife in jeopardy. No one may possess, buy or sell mallards
in Florida without special permit from the FWC, and releasing them
is prohibited.
These activities are against the law because domesticated ducks,
once released, are capable of transmitting diseases, and they compete
with native wildlife for food and habitat. The more important reason
is that releasing mallards threatens the existence of the Florida mottled
duck, a unique subspecies found only in peninsular Florida.
'"These domesticated mallards are crossbreeding with the mottled
duck, producing hybrid offspring," Eggeman said. "This is a serious
concern and if not stopped, this hybridization could result in the-
Florida-mottled duck becoming extinct."
Pet mallards will not migrate when they are released. They
become established, year-round residents of our state. When they
mate with wild mottled ducks, it pushes Florida's mottled ducks
closer.to extinction.
The Florida mottled duck population is relatively small, and
already FWC biologists are saying as many as 12 percent of these
ducks are showing genetic evidence of hybridization.
Today, the future of our mottled duck is uncertain, but its fate is in
Floridians' hands. The solution starts with not buying mallards for
children's Easter gifts.
For more information on protecting Florida's mottled ducks,
contact one of the FWC's waterfowl offices at (850) 488-5878 or
(321) 726-2862, or click MyFWC.com/duck/mottled.

Gulf red snapper sport fishing season set to open
Recreational red snapper season is just around the corner,
prompting the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) to issue a reminder of the rules.
Red snapper must be at least 16 inches long to keep, and a four-
fish-per-person daily bag limit applies.
The recreational season opens April 15 in Florida waters in the
Gulf of Mexico, and April 21 in Gulf federal waters. Florida waters
extend nine nautical miles offshore, and federal waters extend
beyond state waters.
Recreational season ends Nov. 1 to give over-fished red snapper
stocks in the gulf a chance to recover.

mission began lessening their
annual contribution and for two
consecutive years, cut it in half.
"I must tell you that when you
are trying to sustain a primary
care program for the county, the
commissioners cut their contribu-
tion to a fourth of what they were
contributing when the program
started, it sends a message they
do not support your efforts to
operate a primary care clinic,"
Odum said.
-County health department
staffs are state employees and
report directly to the Deputy
State Health Officer. The health
department's duties "are etched in
statute," unlike earlier years when
board members had more influ-
ence over the health department's
day-to-day operations when they
were divided into districts.


Sanders wants to hire a physi-
cian to take on both medical and
administrative duties to run an in-
dependent health department and
he believes it will not only work
but make money for the county.
That plan would involve sig-
nificant costs, Odum said after
the meeting, and explained, "The
state will not provide any ad-
ditional funding to support this
venture."
Odum went on to say, "I be-
lieve the decision for Liberty
County to take on the responsibil-
ity of its own health department,
independent of a partnering
county, carries sufficient liability
that the voters should have a say.
Accordingly, I recommend this
decision be placed before the
voters of Liberty County in the
form of a referendum."


Department of Health honored with
numerous Davis Productivity Awards
TALLAHASSEE- The Florida Department of Health (DOH)
recently received a list of more than 75, 2006 Prudential Financial
Davis Productivity Awards recipients from within the agency.
These awards serve to recognize those individuals and teams whose
diligent work has increased productivity, improved the delivery of
state services by promoting innovation, an.d saved money for Florida
taxpayers and businesses.
"We are very proud of those who were recognized with these
exciting and prestigious awards," said DOH Secretary M. Rony
Frangois, M.D., M.S.P H.. Ph.D. "Their selfless ser\ ice to the people
of Florida has not gone unnoticed and we are \ery pleased with the
quality work they do on a dailh basis to carry out our department's
noble mission."
DOH received recognition in all of the five categories including:
cash, plaques, Certificates of Commendation, Honorable Mention
and Sustained Exemplary Performance.
As Anchor Sponsor, Prudential Financial, as well as other individual,
corporate and philanthropic entities sponsors the program. The Davis
Productivity Awards reward individual state employees, teams, work
units, partnerships and agencies that achieve the criteria.

Area businessmen named Master Loggers after taking part in education program


LAKE CITY Jeff O'Bryan, of Clarksville Timber
Inc., Edward Piercy, of Richard Brown Logging, and
Wayne Suber, of Hicks Creek Logging, have completed
a three-day education program designed to train timber
harvesters in environmentally sound, safe and efficient
logging practices. Completion of this training earned
them the industry designation of Master Logger: a
professional logger with at least one successful year of
operating experience.
They return to the Liberty County area with improved
credentials to offer logging and forestry services in this
growing segment of the local and state economy. In 2003,
forestry contributed $128 million to the Liberty County
economy. Appro\imiately1:,044 employ ees 'work directly.

in the county's forest industry, which generates a $38.1
million payroll. Forest products and paper companies
within the state collectively generate $16.6 billion in
manufactured products and create over 133,000 jobs in
local communities.
O'Bryan, Piercy and Suber traveled to Lake City, where
they participated in sessions with 37 other loggers. The
classes covered technological innovations in the logging
industry, environmental management, the changing wood
supply and demands for more sophisticated business
practices. Lectures included topics on timber security,
endangered species, planning for forest harvests, business
finance, wage management, logging safety, legal affairs
and the latest in environmental regulations.

BHS presents 'Once Upon a Mattress'


DRAMA
A hilariously twisted take on the
fairytale, "The Princess and the Pea"
awaits audiences at Blountstown
High School. "Once Upon a
Mattress" is set in a small kingdom
ruled over by a talkative queen and
a mute king. The show runs Friday
and Saturday, May 5-6, in the
school auditorium. Performances
are at 7:00 p.m. and tickets are $5 in
advance or $6 at the door.
Matthew Barbee, who has taken
on the role of director while Amanda
McGhee, the former director, is
on maternity leave, reminds us,
"Almost everyone has heard the
Hans Christian Andersen story of
'The Princess and the Pea.'" It is
set in a kingdom where an eligible
prince falls in love with a young
woman claiming to be a princess,
but the queen will only let her son
marry the woman if she. passes a
test to prove that she is indeed a
princess. Because all true princesses
are extraordinarily sensitive, the
queen secretly has a tiny pea placed
under twenty mattresses. If the so-
called princess is sensitive enough
to feel the pea, she will have passed
the test and be allowed to marry the
prifice.
Barbee continues to tell us that
"this version of the story isn't
quite accurate. Our 'Once Upon a
Mattress' takes that classic tale and
- turns it on its head, sure to entertain
audiences with its surprise ending."
In this tweaking of the fairy tale,
the overbearing and dramatic Queen
Aggravain (Jessica Matcalf) has
ruled that no one may marry until
her son, Prince Dauntless the Drab
(Adam Richards) marries. However,
the queen has managed. to sabotage
every princess to come along. When
Sir Harry and Lady Larken (Nic
"Myers and Jessica Fields) learn that
they are going to be parents, Harry
goes off to the swamps to bring back
another princess. Starring as the
princess Winnifred the Woebegone,
Diana Glaze arrives at the kingdom
looking as though she has come in
from a storm. Loud and brassy,
Winnifred must win the hearts of
the prince and the kingdom, while
her straightforward and often crude
manners horrify the queen who
immediately begins to scheme
against her. Yet, with some help
from the King (Umair Farouqi),
the Minstrel (T.J. Aycock), and the
Jester (Nick Stoltfus), -Winnifred
isn't going to be quite so easy to get_
rid .of.
Comedian Carol Burnett starred
as Princess Winifred in the play
when it opened on Broadway in
1959. She later took the role to
television during the 1970s and has
recently switched roles, starring
as the queen in Disney's recently
produced made for television movie
of the same name.
Nick Myers, a senior at BHS, has
been relishing his role as Sir Harry,
the chivalrous knight assigned to
find the princess for the bachelor
prince, "It's been a lot of fun playing
Harry. While he is a noble character,
he can be a bit pompous, vain and
chauvinistic."
Metcalf, a junior, says her role
as the queen: is "one of the most
fun roles I've ever :played. She is
so over the top-she tries to control
everybody and yells at everybody.,
Everything to .her.is so seyrous,
especially keeping her son away


from the altar. She will do whatever
it takes to keep her son single.".
"Ultimately, the play illustrates
how we, in a world of such diversity,
are more alike than we would like to
admit," says Barbee. "All it takes is
an open mind, a sense of humor and
-a ticket to see Blountstown High
School's "Once upon a Mattress."
Barbee and McGhee, both
alumni of the Blountstown high
school musical theatre program
themselves, assure us that this year's
play promises off-the-wall comedy
and delightful intrigue, entertaining
audience members of all ages.
Every ticket bought enters the
ticket holder in a drawing for a
$100. gift certificate toward the
purchase of a new mattress set from
Badcock's Home Fmrnishing. The
drawing will be held at the end of
the last performance and you do not
have to be present to win.

TIGERS INTERNATIONAL
by Kayla Parrish
On March 11, Blountstown
High School's Tigers International
members traveled to St. Augustine,
Florida to take a tour of the city on
the sight seeing trains. They .saw
the old fort and the Castillo de Sanl
Marcos. They also had some free
time in the historic section of town.
Members, along with the sponsors,
watched as cannons were shot off at
the fort and learned a lot about the
history of St. Augustine.
Tigers International members
would like to thank Mrs. Sandra
White and Ms. Shelley Wilson-
Ayers for chaperoning the trip and
Mrs. Sherryl Norris and Mrs. Te-
resa Forbes for driving the bus. Ms.
Dana Ayers, Tigers International
sponsor, would also like to com-
mend the club members on their
excellent behavior.
SCIENCE NEWS
by Jessica Metcalf
On March 29, Mr. Scott Bon-
trager took his two anatomy and-
physiology honors classes to tour
FSU's new state of the art College
of Medicine. Students watched a
virtual tour of the college which-
told the history arid the mission
statement of the college. The video
also contained testimonials from
current FSU students.
Afterwards, students were split
into groups for a walk-through of
the school. First stop was a floor
solely dedicated to experimental re-'
search. Some students were lucky
enough to actually get to peep in
and see experiments in progress.
Next stop was the medical library.
Students were given a tour by the
librarian, and she explained that


most of their books are online now
instead of print. Students are given
wireless laptops where they can ac-
cess information needed no matter
where their location.
The final stop was the patient
learning center. This is a center
where students can work on their
communication skills with their ga-
tients. The patients are hired and
told to describe certain symptoms,
and it is the students' job to diag-
nose them correctly. Meanwhile,
the professors are watching this
process to grade and make sure
students follow proper procedures.
The sessions are taped so that after-
wards the students can playback the
tape to see what they can improve.
Following the tour, the whole group
received a speech from the Dr. Pe-
ter Evelan, Assistant Dean of the
College of Medicine. During this
time there was a question and an-
swer session for the students. Af-
terwards, the students dined in the
FSU union Center.
For students preparing to enter
the medical field, this trip was ex-
tremely rewarding. Each experi-
enced a day in the life of a medical
student and now has a better under-
standing of what to expect.

FAMILY BREAKFAST
by Justin McCoy
It's always great for the family to
sit down for breakfast together, but
who has time for that? Most parents
don't even attempt to prepare a meal
in the morning, due to all the rushing
around. The folks at Altha Public
School can sympathize. Therefore,
they are having a family breakfast.
Everyone needs to partake in the
most important meal of the day, so
why not do it together as a family.
Altha School's cafeteria will
be'open for family breakfast on
Friday, April 14 from 7 7:35 a.m.
You'll strengthen your family bond
while you fill your stomach. So
get the kids ready and come have
breakfast!

GO FISH
by Caitlyn Bruner
On March 31 the kindergarten
and first grade classes of Altha
School performed their spring
program titled "Go Fish." The
children performed marvelously.
The play was about fish in
the ocean who weren't happy
with themselves. They each had
something that they didn't like
about themselves. For instance, the
tiger shark wanted friends and the
clown fish wished to be able to tell
funny jokes. In the end, however,
the fish realized that everyone has
flaws, but that is what makes them
who they are.


efforts, Evans will be treated to a
week long, all expense paid trip to
Washington, D.C. this summert.
Evans is riot the only LCHS
student to gain notoriety recently.
LCHS junior Carmen Foran
earned the Governor's All-Star
Student Award. Foran traveled
to Tallahassee last Friday to work
with other award winners. While
in our state's capital, Foran partic-
ipated in a mock legislative ses-
sion, which she called, "The most
enjoyable experience of the day."
To win this prestigious award, she
had to demonstrate excellence in
a number of categories, including
academics, behavior, leadership
and community service.
The staff and administration
of LCHS wish to express our
strongest appreciation to both
Darren Evans and Carmen Foran
for their respective outstanding
representations of LCHS.
BASEBALL- The Bulldogs
continue their winning ways on
the diamond this past week. Last
Tuesday night, the Bulldogs beat
district four Wewahitchka 6-2.
David Travis pitched a solid 6
innings and Jace Ford closed the
door on the Gators in the 9th.
Preston Burke homered yet again
in the bottom of the 6th. His shot
over the left field fence broke
a 2-2 tie and spurred a Bulldog
offensive charge that the Gators
could not match.


Last Thursday, the Bulldogs
took their show to the state's
capital city of Tallahassee to
take on the FAMU High School
Rattlers. Jordan Gentry pitched
4 innings and gave up only 1
earned run to run his season re-
cord to 2-0. Outfield Nic Gregg
led the Dawgs from the plate
with two doubles.
The following night, the
Dawgs went down to the coast
to meet the Port St. Joe Sharks.
Aside from being a traditional
rivalry, this game would deter-
mine the regular season district
champion and decide who would
receive the coveted number one
seed in the district tournament.
The game certainly lived up to
the expectations.
Cameron O'Neal had two
singles, and Heath Flanagan and
Wade McCoy each contribute
base hits. However, the most
outstanding performance was
turned in by pitcher Jace Ford.
The senior turned in one of the
most heroic exhibitions of guts
and determination so far this
year. Ford threw a complete
game covering 9 innings and
gave up only one earned run,
pushing his record to 4-1 on the
year. With the 6-4 victory, the
Bulldogs locked up the district
with a record of 5-0 and an over-
all record of 18-1.

Lace bugs cause unsightly problems for azaleas


Since its introduction from Ja-
pan in the 1920s, the azalea lace
bug has become one of the most
serious insect pests of azaleas.
Although this insect prefers ev-
ergreen azalea varieties, it will
also attack deciduous azaleas as
well as mountain laurel.
Lace bugs are small insects,
approximately 1/8 inch long.
They have lacy wings that are
partially transparent. Due to
their size and color, these insects
can be difficult to see on the
plant. To help you find them,
shake an infested branch over a
white sheet of paper. The insects
will fall off and are much easier
to see and identify.
Lace bugs damage plants by
inserting their piercing-suck-
ing mouthparts into the under-
side of leaves and sucking out
chlorophyll and other plant
fluids. The damage appears as
spotted discoloration or bleach-
ing of the upper surfaces of the
leaves. Lightly infested leaves
have a white-dotted, speckled or
stippled appearance. In severe
infestations, the leaves become
almost white, many of them dry-
ing completely and dropping
off.


1 -








.. .

Several stages of the lace bug can be found on the underside
of azalea leaves


by Theresa Friday,
Extension Horticultural
Agent, Santa Rosa County

The undersides of the leaves
also exhibit signs of infestation.
The surfaces can become rust
colored and are frequently cov-
ered with dark spots of tar-like
excrement.
The egg is the usual overwin-
tering stage, although in mild
winters adults survive to lay
eggs the following spring. Egg
hatching generally begins in late
February, producing dense pop-
ulations March through May.
Lace bugs can complete three
to five generations in a single
season. Azaleas begin to look
unhealthy as insect numbers in-
crease through the spring and
summer.
The first step to minimizing
damage is to keep your azaleas
healthy. Azaleas, which are nor-
mally understory shrubs, are less
able to tolerate lace bug damage
when planted in full sun and suf-
fering from drought-stress.
Control can be accomplished
if the life cycles are broken ear-
ly. Sprays should be timed for
the first appearance of adults or
nymphs in the spring just after
the blooms have faded. Two or
more applications of a control
measure may be needed because
of multiple generations.
Dislodging lace bugs from
infested plants with a strong
stream of water may be suffi-
cient to disrupt populations early
in the season. It will probably
take several soakings, and even
this may not be enough. This ap-
proach may only knock the in-
sects off the plants, rather than


kill them.
Insecticidal soaps can be ef-
fective. Insecticidal soaps are
useful in controlling azalea lace
bug nymphs but will have no ef-
fect against lace bug eggs. All
stages of the lace bug are found
on the undersides of leaves.
Spraying only on the upper sur-
faces will have no effect, as the
treatment will not come in con-
tact with the targeted pest. Thor-
ough coverage of the undersur-
faces of the foliage and several
applications may be required for
complete control.
If more than fifteen percent
of the foliage is damaged, then
a conventional insecticide appli-
cation may be justified. Insecti-
cides containing carbaryl, cyflu-
thrin, deltamethrin, imidacloprid
and malathion are just a few that
are registered in Florida for use
against lace bugs. For a com-
plete list, review the UF/IFAS
publication about lace bugs
available online at http://edis.
ifas.ufl.edu/MG326 or call your
local Extension office.
Be sure to follow all label di-
rections when using a pesticide.
Good control of the first genera-
tion will greatly reduce problems
later in the season. Continue to
inspect the plants periodically
and apply control measures if
plants become reinfested. Be
aware, the brown spots and stip-
pling will remain on leaves even
after pest populations have been
reduced.

health care professions." said
Russell Bennett, vice president
of Latino Health Solutions at
UnitedHealthcare. "For example,
in the nursing field, a recent policy
report by the Online Journal of
Issues in Nursing states that the
proportion of Latino nursing
students continues to lag behind
the number of Latinos in the
population.
"Nationwide, many Latinos do
not have access to culturally and
linguistically appropriate care,
and this has a far-reaching effect
on their health and quality of life,"
Bennett added. "Studies show
that patients respond better when
care instructions are delivered
in their own language and their
cultural background is taken into
account."
Once again, the Latino Health
Scholars program has been
expanded to include in addition
to the seventy-five (75) $2,000
scholarships two $25,000
Freedom Awards for the two most
qualified applicants.
Since it was introduced in
2003, the Latino Health Scholars
program has awarded $356,000
to 155 students across the country
who are pursuing diverse health
care careers. such as .Nursing,
Pre-Med, Biology, Psychology,
Biomedical Engineering and other
allied health professions.
"We applaud
UnitedHealthcare's commitment
to help pave the way for the next
generation of Hispanic health
care professionals," said Elena
Rios, M.D., president and chief
executive officer of the National
Hispanic Medical Association.
"We believe the Latino Health
Scholars program can inspire
these students to succeed in
school and pursue rewarding,
fulfilling health care careers that
will make a positive impact in
their communities."
"We are encouraging our
scholarship recipients to utilize
their bilingual and bicultural
skills and health care education by
'giving back' to their communities
once they graduate," Bennett
added. "We are doing our part in
the community by enlisting the
help. of many of our employees
who have volunteered to serve as
ambassadors by visiting the high
schools and assisting students
interested in a career in health
care."
