Maggie Floyd dies just days before marking her 107th birthday
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The woman thought to be the
oldest person in Liberty Coun-
ty died peacefully at home on Thanks-
Born on the cusp of the 20th cen-
tury in 1899, Maggie Marlowe Floyd
of Sweetwater was just days away
from marking her 107th birthday on
"She may not have seen three cen-
turies, but she was involved in three
centuries," said Maggie's cousin,
Martha Smith Dickson, referring to
the fact that she entered this world in
the final month of the 19th Century.
"She was on the ball a very smart
woman," said Dickson.
Born in Blakely, GA, Maggie
moved to Liberty County with her fa-
ther, Amos Marlowe. At the age of 15,
she married and had two daughters,
Mildred Green and Alice Darby, who
are now in their 80s. Both women
were at their mother's side when she
passed away last week.
Maggie was the seventh of 11 sib-
lings, outli in- them all. Her mother
lived to be 99; her oldest sister reached
the age of 101.
She and her husband lived a simple
life; enjoying family, friends and
church. She didn't get a television set
until she was in her 80s, and that was
at the urging of one of her daughters,
according to Dickson.
"She loved watching the news and
Sunday services on t.v. She also liked
to watch Oprah," Dickson said.
She lived near St. Stephens AME
Church and until recently, enjoyed
walking to services.
As a young girl, she worked in the
field and used to pick tung oil seed.
In later years, she worked as a custo-
dian with the Liberty County School
In an interview last year, her daugh-
ter, Alice, said her mother maintained
a garden until she was 100. "She
loved to have stuff growing," she
said. She especially likes collard
greens, turnips, sweet potatoes and
Through the years, she's been
generous in encouraging others, urg-
ing many who crossed her path to
"Go out and be something." Dickson
said, "She always loved to give good
Along with her two daughters,
she is survived by four grandchil-
dren, several great-grandchildren, 19
great-great grandchildren and two
great-great-great grandchildren, along
with a host of nieces, nephews and

Truck totaled in Thanksgiving morning rollover
A Blountstown man received minor injuries and totaled his vehicle in a Thanksgiving morning
accident on State Road 20 in Bristol. Clarence E. Atkins, was traveling east when he drove onto
the shoulder of the road and lost control of his 2001 Ford Ranger. Atkins overcorrected when
he attempted to return to the road, causing the truck to roll over. The accident site was about
one mile west of Prison Road, west of Hosford. Atkins reportedly suffered a broken collarbone
and a black eye in the pre-dawn crash. JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTO

vehicle inspection checkpoints
The Blountstown Police Department will conduct a driver's li-
cense and vehicle inspection checkpoints during the month of De-
cember on Main Street and Central Avenue in the city of Blount-
Recognizing the danger presented to the public by defective ve-
hicle equipment, officers will 'concentrate their efforts on vehicles
being operated with defects such as bad brakes, worn tires and de-
fective lighting equipment. In addition, attention will be directed to
drivers who would violate the driver license laws of Florida.
The BPD has found these checkpoints to be an effective means
of enforcing the equipment and driver license laws of Florida while
ensuring the protection of all motorists.

Brother and sister arrested
A Blountstown man taken into custody during an apparent alterca-
tion just after midnight Wednesday is facing charges of felony battery,
resisting an officer without violence and contempt of court.
Havan 0. Davis, 26, was arrested and his sister, Rolando Simmons,
was charged with obstruction of justice after she reportedly yelled
and cursed at officers as they arrested her brother.
Deputies responded to an "officer in distress" call from Police Of-
ficer Chuck Bender, who had been patrolling in the Fuqua Circle area
when he stopped to talk with two men standing by the road. As the
officer approached, one of the men walked off and the other later
identified as Davis crouched behind a car.
Davis then fled, leading the officer on a short foot pursuit.
Distressed voices and background noises were heard on the police
radio before Bender lost contact.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found Bender struggling
to handcuff Davis, who was resisting an order to put his hands behind
his back as a group of people stood nearby watching.
Davis originally gave the officer a false name but after his identity
was established, Bender discovered the man had two outstanding
Both Davis and his sister were taken into custody.

A deputy was called out to
Green Acres Road around 1 p.m.
after two men were involved in a
fight that stemmed from an argu-
ment about Joseph Daniel Harris'
relationship with his cousin's
wife, Stephanie Glass.
Idus Lee Glass, 36, allegedly
kicked Harris, chased him down
a road, knocked him down and
jumped on him, according to a
statement given by his wife.
Harris told the deputy he ran
from Glass in hopes of preventing
another altercation after being hit
by Glass at his home.
Glass acknowledged that he
did attack Harris both at the house
and on the road. He was then
taken into custody and charged
with domestic battery.

THE LOVE OF CHRIST
Text: Ephesians 3:18
Edwin Markham told about a cob-
bler who dreamed that Jesus was com-
ing to visit. The cobbler got up early,
prepared, and waited all morning.
Then an old man limped up asking to
come in and warm himself. The old
man's shoes were worn out. The cob-
bler gave him a new pair of shoes.
The cobbler continued to wait. An
elderly woman was struggling under a
heavy load of firewood. He asked her
to stop and rest. She had not eaten for
two days. He gave her a meal.
That night, the cobbler heard a lost
child crying outside. He calmed the
child and took him home.
Thinking he missed the Lord's
coming, he heard a voice, "Three
times I came to your friendly door;
Three times My shadow was on your
I was the man with the bruised feet;
I was the woman you gave to eat I was
the child on the homeless Street."
The church must be grounded and
rooted in love if it is to accomplish
God's purpose. Paul prays the church,
"may have power, together with all
the saints, to grasp how wide and long
and high and deep is the love of Christ
(NIV)." Paul wants all believers to
be able to fully understand the entire
scope of Christ's love..
The Creator of the universe came
to live among us as a man. He sacri-
ficed Himself on cruel, rugged cross to
pay for sins that you and I committed.
He rose again ascending to Heaven.
He freely gives forgiveness and eter-
nal life to all who believe. He loves
us enough to work through a cobbler
to ensure a tired old man has shoes,
a hungry old woman has a satisfying
meal, and a lost child finds his way
home. Oh, what a Savior

well as James R. Dezell, Sr. of
Coral Gables and his daughters,
Lori Dezell of Tallahassee and
Lisa Dezell Hood of Marietta,

see, \\ho played se'%eral tunes

fellowship %as, enjoyed b\ e\-
eryone in attendance.
The complete text on the
marker is as follows:
THE DEZELL HOUSE. The
Dezell House was built in 1912
by James A. and Margaret Leila
"Maggie" Shepard Dezell. This
house, with its Prairie Style ar-
chitecture and Arts and Crafts
features, was their family home
for 46 years.
James A. Dezell (1867-1937)
was born in Chicago, moving
from soufhiwestern Mvissourt
to Gadsden County in 1886.
James and "Maggie!', a Gads-
den Coimnr native, married on
September 13, 1893. Between
1894 and 1903, they had three
S(oin and two daughters James
and his fuieri: Somuel. A. Dezell,
were builders. They constructed
the Samuel Dezell family house
in Mt. Pleasant in 1886. James
A. De :l-l iwas til first 1aI'vo. of.
the Town 6of Gret.boro. st iv'-
ing sti t rml a rins fllou rm nthe
first oianiarional nit.ting on
Atuvit 13. 1908. The most dis-
tinctive aspects of this house's
construction are its closeness
to the ground rather than sitting
on piers, fine craftsmanship,
and windows set in dormers
that crown the roofline on each
main roof slope -and provide
light for a skylight in the entry
hall. Dezell was evidently very
confident in materials and tech-
niques he chose for the house.
The Dezell House was listed in
the National Register of Histor-
ic Places in 2006, showing his
confidence was well placed. A

Simply Florida: A Taste of Flavors
from the Sunshine State is a cookbook
started with a 4-H project in 1930. It is a
tribute to a woman who dedicated her life
to educating people, all people, about the
practical skills needed to improve their
Professor Mary Nall Harrison died in
June 2006, nine days short of her 88th
birthday. Her passing ended a 43-year
career with University of Florida/IFAS
Her friends and colleagues are working
to continue Harrison's Extension Educa-
tion programs through sales of the Simply
Florida cookbook. Funds will be used to
endow the Mary Harrison Distinguished
Extension Professional and Enhancement
Award in the Family, Youth and Commu-
nity Sciences Department at the Univer-
sity of Florida.,
Mary Frances Nall (later Harrison) was
a country girl living on a south Alabama
farm during the depths of the Great De-
pression when she began her involvement
with the Extension Service.
The county education budget was short
of revenue in 1930 and classes ended af-
ter three months. At her mother's insis-
tence, she completed a 4-H record book
and submitted it to complement the ab-
breviated school year.
Years later she reflected, "That 4-H
project started my understanding the
value of practical kills. I could see and
touch the results of m r ork ""
,IMore 4-H project follow, ed in the en-
suing year-. Additnon:dl3, she took a va-
riety of leadership roles in the local 4-H
program, the focus always on practical
Following her college years Harrison
taught in public schools, was the direc-
tor of adult education in Corpus Christi,
Texas and even worked in an aircraft fac-
tory during World War II.
In 1963 Harrison took the job as Home
Demonstration Agent at the Nassau
County Cooperative Extension Office in
Callahan, Florida. Her programs covered

Harrison's efforts always stressed the
applied value of the skills she taught and
there was usually an innovative approach.
Sewing, canning and meal preparation on
a budget were her stock in trade. She also
taught sharp shopping skills to anyone
seeking to stretch a paycheck.
"On several occasions my mother
packed my lunch with recipes she was
testing for programs," said her eldest son
Les Harrison, who is now an Extension
Agent in Leon County. "My friends were
always interested in what I would pull out
of my brown sack and sometimes wanted
to swap lunches. It was always an adven-
Harrison took a statewide specialist
position in the Florida Cuopciati\e Ex-
tension Service after four years in Nassau
County. She was promoted to Profes-
sor in 1982. She conriinued her innova-
tive approach to teaching practical skills
covering such diverse topics as seat belt
usage, fixing credit problems and plan-
ning a funeral. She frequently visited
Tallahassee during this time, working
cooperatively with the Home Economics
program housed at the Florida State Col-
lege for Womun.
Before her death, Harrison was aware
that the award was named for her long
service. She confided in close friends
that she was flattered b\ the honor.
The Simply Florida cookbook has
been a fun arid creative way for friends
and colleatgue-, to remember Harrison. A

FWC seeks public input into
Manatee Management Plan
Those loveable sea cows, of-
ficially known as Florida man-
atees, are migrating, traveling
from the north to the wanner
waters to the south.
They instinctively know
winter is just around the corner,
inuch the same as migratory
birds and Florida's snowbirds
know that 01' Man Winter is
knocking on the door.
The state's official marine
mammal is highlighted dur-
ing November, also known as
Manatee Awareness Month,
and the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) is asking for the pub-
lic's assistance in protecting
the sea cow for future genera-
The state's first Manatee
Management Plan, released
Thursday, is available online
at MyFWC.com, and FWC of-
ficials are asking the public to
share thoughts and views.
"The first draft incorpo-
rated extensive public input,"
said Kipp Frohlich, leader
of FWC's Imperiled Species
Management Section. "We are
looking to the people of Flor-
ida to let us.know if it meets
their expectations for manatee
recovery and management."
Dr. John E. Reynolds III,
Mote Marine manatee re-
search program, manager, and,
chairman of the U.S. Marine
Mammal Commission, said
manatee counts have increased
in recent years.
Since the 1980s, Reynolds
has been counting manatees
which congregate around pow-
News from The
Florida Fish and
er plants. Mote Marine staff
have been conducting aerial
surveys since 1985. FWC,
along with several other enti-
ties, also conducts counts and
Those surveys "document
habitat use patterns, seasonal
distribution and relative abun-
dance of manatees," according
to information on Mote's Web
Keeping track of the num-
ber of Florida manatees is vi-
tall\ important so scientists
know whether to classify the
manatee, as endangered or
"The fact that the manatee
does not merit classification as
endangered is a tribute to the
commitment made to manatee
conservation during the past
30 years, this effort has few
parallels in conservation biol-
ogy," Frohlich said.
The reclassification is based
on the recommendations of a
biological review panel headed
by Elsa Haubold, FWC's sec-
tion leader for Species Conser-
"Factors that contributed to
the decision to list the manatee
as threatened included the po-
tential for at least a 30 percent
population decline in the future
and a relatively small popula-
tion size," Haubold said.
FWC and its partners have
been successful in rehabilitat-
ing manatees struck by boats
or suffering from life-threaten-
ing illnesses and injuries.
One such mammal was
found floating near the Isle of
Capri. The manatee was suf-
fering from a pneumothorax
- free air in his chest -- caused
by a boat striking him.
"They found him floating
and he could not dive," Dr.
Maya Rodriguez, veterinar-
said. "Whefi he came to us,
we could tell immediately he
had fractured ribs. The x-rays
showed about 10 fractures, his
entire right side was unstable.
"Of course, he didn't want
to eat, but he was amazing,"
she said. "What's amazing is
these manatees are fighters,
they want to survive."
And, this particular mana-
tee did survive. He had free
air for about six months. The
youngster (his age estimated
at 2 years) began associating
with other manatees, especial-
ly other males. He began div-
ing and eating, gaining about
Another manatee, this one
from the Florida Keys, suf-
fered for a longer time than
the Isle of Capri manatee, Ro-
driguez said. He had been hit
quite some time before he was
found in shallow water. His
type of injuries generally oc-
cur from a boat hull hitting an
animal at a veiy high speed.
"He had pyothorax where
the (body) cavity fills up with
pus," she said. "The full cav-
ity was filled with fluid.
"In the shallows, they don't
eat," she said. "Their entire be-
ing is concentrated on breath-
ing. They can't dive to eat."
said, this manatee survived
the devastating injury. He was
the only one to have done so
when he was released.
"About three years later,
he weighed 1,300 pounds,"
she said. "He came in at 600
Rodriguez said the most
enjoyment she gets from
working around manatees is
giving them every chance at
"The ones in such severe
shape, some people think 'do
we put them out of their mis-
ery?"' she said. "But, they just
keep fighting. They don't give
up so we don't give up."

view the management plan to
help protect the manatee can

Students: Don't believe these college financial aid myths
IOWA CITY, IOWA Col-

of a rejection letter, parents wor-

*Myth #1: You can't afford
college. Many parents and stu-
dents see the tuition price, cost
of living in the forms and the
textbook fees, and say there is no
way they can afford college. The
truth is most college students
require some form of financial
aid. In fact, nearly 75 percent
of 2006 high school graduates
who took the ACT reported that
they need help to pay for col-
lege. Don't ignore .college be-
cause of its "sticker price." Stu-

Fertility. In some European cultures, a kiss under
mistletoe is a proposal of marriage. However, in
the U.S.,: it is used merely as a sign of love and

*Myth #2: You have to be
very poor, very smart or very
talented to qualify for finan-
cial aid. Financial aid- comes
in many forms grants and
scholarships that you don't have
to repay, and loans, which you
do have to repay. There is need-
based aid for students of lower
income families, and merit-based
aid for students who excel in
athletics, music, community ser-
vice and many other areas. Fi-
nancial aid sources are as varied,
too the federal government,
the college or university itself,
a parent's employer, and others.
When students take the time to
explore all the possibilities, they
will be surprised at what offers
they may receive.
*Myth #3: You can get more
scholarships by paying some-
one to search for you. Schol-
arship scams are everywhere.
Beware of any groups or indi-
vidual that guarantees a scholar-
ship if you pay a fee. There are
many good and free scholarship

*Myth #4: My child will
pay for college, so my salary
doesn't matter.-- Most need-
based financial aid is based
on parents' income and assets.
Most schools require students
to fill out the FAFSA, the Free
Application for Federal Student
Aid, in order to qualify for need-
based aid. The form, available
online at www.fafsa.ed.gov asks
for information similar to what
you need for you income taxes.
After submitting the FAFSA,
students receive a report that
shows how much the govern-
ment expects you to pay for to-
ward your child's education. If
you aren't ready to file yet, visit

timate of you expected family
*Myth #5: You can wait un-
til you get accepted to a college
before worrying about finan-
cial aid. Most financial aid is
doled out on first-come, first-
served basis. No one should
wait to get started. Looking for
financial aid probably isn't in a
teen's idea of a good time, but
it is better than graduating from
college in debt.

INTERIM MOTORCYCLE TRAIL
The Forest Service has decided to implement the designation of an interim short-
term motorcycle trail as described below:
1. Posting approximately 14 miles of existing trails for motorcycle use until
Nov. 30, 2007 At that Ime the trail would be decommissioned, or become
designated for long-term use through the on-going route designation process
which is expected to be completed by Sept. 30, 2007. The Nov. 30, 2007 dead-
line would allow two months for long-term implementation efforts such as trail
signing activities to be completed.
2 Uilize three exislirg parking areas Lost Lake, Forest Road 358 near Moore
Lake, and Dog Lake). The areas near Moore Lake and Dog Lake would re-
quire minor grading and the addition of lime rock.
S3. A sign at each trail head will identity the difficulty rating of the trail.
This action is categorically excluded from dQcumentation in an environmental
impact statement or an environmental assessment. The action is in accordance
with the Forest Service Handbook 1909.15, Section 31.2 Category 1 (Construc-
tion and reconstruction of trails).

Stoutamire wins grand
champion at Jackson Fair
from Monica Brinkley
UF/IFAS, Liberty County Extension
Nine-year-old Zach Stoutamire
of the Hosford-Telogia LATCH 4-
H Club at Grace United Methodist
Church showed his first hog at the
Jackson County Fair in Marianna
on Oct. 10.'
Zach enjoyed raising his hog,
named Rocksann, and made sure
she had the right kind and amount
of feed every day. He tracked her
weight gain, washed and groomed
her and worked on his showing
techniques often. The hard work
paid off as he won Grand Cham-
pion honors with his 248 lbs. hog.
There were 84 hogs, divided into
five weight classes in the Jackson
County Fair Show.
Tom Stoutamire, Zach's grand-
father, purchased the pig. Mr.
Stoutamire has a tradition of as-
sisting his grandchildren with the
first animal they choose to raise
and show. This is a great way to
encourage the grandchildren and
give them a jump start with their
Zack had a lot of family sup-
port for his first project. Not only
does he thank his grandfather for
the initial purchase, but he also
wants his Uncle Tommy Stouta-
mire and cousins, Tyler, Erin and
Leah Stoutamire for all the help
and guidance he was given. Jer-
emy Branch of Grand Ridge, a
County Commission Candidate,
bought the hog. 4-H projects like
this one are difficult without the
support of family and commu-
When Zach was asked by his fa-
ther, Scott Stoutamire, if he would
.like to continue showing hogs he
stated, "Daddy, I can show hogs
for 10 more years, That means I
can have 10 more Grand Cham-
pions!" His father responded,
"Wishful thinking son." What en-
thusiasm, which is what it takes to
make dreams reality.

available to anyone who wishes
to have a real tree. To ensure its
beauty this Christmas, take extra
care in selecting, preparing and
decorating your real tree.
When choosing a cut tree, se-
lect one with good needle hold-
ing ability. Scotch and white pine
and Douglas and Balsam fir have
naturally good needle-holding
qualities, while spruce trees tend
to lose needles quickly.
You should always check for
freshness of trees on retail lots.
The length of time since cutting
and the way the trees have been
handled can greatly influence
how well they will hold their
needles and fragrance once they
are put up in the home.
Before purchasing, do a fresh-
ness test. Hold a branch about
six inches from the tip. Pull
your hand toward the tip, allow-
ing the branch to slip through
your fingers. Very few green
needles should come off in your
hand if the tree is fresh. An-
other way to test for freshness is
to lift the tree a couple of inch-
es off the ground, then bring it
down abruptly on the stump end.
If more than a few needles drop,
the tree is not fresh.
When you get the tree home,
make a fresh cut across the base
of the trunk approximately three
inches up from the original cut.
When a tree is first cut, a seal
of sap occurs naturally over its
stump which keeps moisture in
the tree. It's important to break
that seal to allow the tree to take
Until you are ready to deco-
rate, place the cut tree in,a large
bucket of water in a cool, shady
place. If the tree must lean
against a wall, make sure that
you turn it daily to avoid disrupt-
ing the shape of the tree.
The most important thing to
remember is that real trees need
water. A cut tree may absorb a
gallon of water in the first day.
Thereafter, it can absorb between
two pints to a gallon daily. Be
sure to check the stand every day
and supply fresh water as need-
ed. If the water supply runs out,
a seal will form on the cut sur-
face of the tree trunk and a new
cut should be made. Overall, a
good rule of thumb is to treat a
green Christmas tree just like a
fresh bouquet of cut flowers.
Make sure your tree is not lo-
cated near a fireplace, television
set, candles, or other source of
heat. Place your tree away from
household traffic patterns so that
there will be no possibility of
the tree being knocked over ac-
When decorating your tree,
make sure all lighting equipment
is in good condition and used in
accordance with the manufac-
turer's specifications. Always
unplug the lights when leaving
When cared for properly,
your Christmas tree should be
a source of pleasure throughout
the holiday season.

ALBERT EUGENE PHILLIPS
HOSFORD Albert Eugene "Purg" "Junior" Phillips, 76, died
Monday, Nov. 27, 2006. He was a lifelong resident of Hosford and
was retired from the State Department of Natural Resources. He
loved to fish and will be remembered as a master fisherman. He loved
spending time with his children and grandchildren and at his favorite
"loafers bench" at T & P Grocery.
He was preceded in death by a grandson, Jesse Lee Phillips.
Survivors include two sons, Gene and his wife, Mae Phillips and
Donnie and his wife, Annette Phillips, all of Telogia; two daughters,
Kay and her husband, Ron Cross and Sheree Martin, all of Tallahassee;
three sisters, Mable Williams and Marion Ellison, both of Hosford
and Vivian Land of North Ft. Myers; nine grandchildren; 10 great-
grandchildren; Victor Herndon, who had lived with him; and a special
great-granddaughter, who is due in January. .
Memorial services will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2006
at Telogia Baptist Church in Telogia. Memorial contributions may
be made to Florida Baptist Children's Home, 8415 Buck Lake Road,
Tallahassee, FL 32311.

Q: Are the stalks of broccoli
nutritious, too, or do the florets
contain everything good?
A: Broccoli is one of the most
nutritious vegetables, providing
vitamin C, folate, and special
called isothiocyanates. It also
contains a group of phytochemi-
cals called carotenoids, including
beta-carotene and lutein, which
seem especially good for our
eyes, The florets and leaves are
higher in carotenoids than the
pale stalks, but the stalks are just
as good at providing vitamin C
and folate. The stalks are also
great sources of fiber. Little in-
formation is available about the
phytochemical content of differ-
ent parts of the broccoli plant.
- Regardless, you can be confident
that the whole broccoli-stalks
and florets-provides numerous
nutrients for your health.
Q: Can healthy eating help
prevent damage to vision from
A: Age-related macular de-
generation (AMD) is still not
fully understood, but experts
believe it involves damage to
the retina of the eye by highly
reactive free radicals. The large
Age-Related Eye Disease Study
showed that high doses of an-
tioxidant supplements might
slow the progression from early
to late AMD. Research does not
show that early supplementa-
tion prevents AMD, however. A
large study of over 4,000 people
suggests that we can probably
lower risk of AMD by about 35
percent with a diet that supplies
antioxidant nutrients. The key
parts of such a daily diet are:
six or more servings of veg-
etables and fruits (with at least
1 ? cups of dark green and 1
cup of orange vegetables per
week), three or more servings
of whole grains, 4 to 6 ounces
of meat, poultry or seafood
(or bean equivalents; about 2
to 3 cups), 5 to 7 teaspoons of
oils like canola and olive, and
about 1 ounce of nuts. This
study found that diets high in
several antioxidants seem to
lower.AMD risk more than high
amounts of any single antioxi-
dant. Eating fish at least twice
a week may also substantially
reduce AMD risk. Other studies
have found that overdoing total
fat consumption, particularly
with lots of polyunsaturated fat,
may increase AMD risk.
