A coroner's report re-
veals that Blountstown
Mayor Marsha Harpool,
whose body was found in
her home Friday night, died
of heart congestion.
The death was
discovered when her son,
Adam Harpool, who is
attending the University
of Florida in Gainesville,
contacted the Blountstown


Marsha Harpool


explaining that she didn't
seek the job of mayor
for the title. "She was
really there to bring about
change."
He said she came to
Blountstown in the mid-
1980s for an internship
after receiving her
master's degree in Urban
and Regional Planning.
At the time of her death,
she was employed with
Sunland in Marianna.

Police Department to check on
her after she failed to answer
repeated phone calls.
During a Thursday night phone call,
they talked for two hours. Adam said
they discussed one of their favorite
topics politics, and talked about the
Obama-Clinton debate. Although she
had a rare kidney disease and was on
a strict medication regime, he said she
didn't sound tired. "My understanding
was that she was supposed to be getting
better," he said. "I had no idea the
situation was as grave as it was."
Officers arrived around 9 p.m. to find
the house locked with no lights on and
her vehicle parked out front.
A relative who met officers at
the Orange Street residence broke a
window to let them inside after there
was no answer to knocks on the door.
Harpool was found in her bedroom.
Paramedics were unable to resuscitate
her.
The 52-year-old woman made
history in Blountstown when she was
elected mayor in 2006. She was the first
woman and the first African American
to hold that office.
"She was always a very reform-
minded individual who couldn't stand
injustice or inequity," Adam said,


As mayor, she didn't
hesitate to ruffle a few feathers.
"When you had a discussion with
her, you knew exactly what was on
her mind. She was real direct," said
Blountstown Police Chief Glenn
Kimbrel. "We all knew where we stood
with her and that she wanted things
done the right way." He added, "She
was not afraid to ask questions."
He said he believed her- election
as mayor encouraged many of the
community's young people, both black
and white, especially young women.
City Manager James Woods said
Harpool wanted to see community
members working together. "The
thing I think I realize most is that
she really genuinely cared about
making Blountstown a better place.
She sometimes had different ideas
about how to get there, but the goal was
always the same to make a better
community for everybody." He added,
"I think that will be her legacy."
A memorial service will be held.
Wednesday, Feb. 27 at St. Mary's
Baptist Church in Blountstown at 1
p.m. (CT). A second service will be
held later in Bowling Green, KY, where
most of her family lives. Her complete
obituary appears inside on page 22.

In just two weeks of operation, the new Calhoun County Ambulance Service
has logged 100 runs, according to ambulance service manager Phillip Hill.
The service is currently headquartered at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital, but there
are plans to move into a separate building soon, he said.
Hill has hired six full time paramedics and six full time EMTs. The staff
also includes two part-time paramedics and four part-time EMTs.
-..' "We have three licensed vehicles, with two advanced life support
ambulances staffed at this time," Hill said. "We don't like to see
people sick or injured, but we're glad we can be of assistance
-. when they are."
Hill said the community's support of the new service
"has been overwhelming."
A state inspection will be conducted in about two weeks
I ; and he said he expects they will do well.
Following the quick departure of Emergystat, the hospital
association went to work finding a way to keep emergency
services operating in the county. Ambulance workers are
considered hospital employees who work under Calhoun County Emergency
Medical Services, a division of the hospital association.

Heavy rains push vault out of burial site


Last week's heavy rains left roads flooded,
opened up a few potholes and left folks
with soggy yards but no one expected
what happened in the cemetery at Calvary
Baptist Church. The saturated ground
forced a fiberglass vault containing a
casket to come to the surface Friday
morning. 'The buoyancy caused it to raise
up about 18 inches," according to Calhoun


County Emergency Management Director
Sonny O'Bryan. '"There was no slab on top
so when it raised up, there wasn't anything
to hold it down," said Calhoun County
Sheriff David Tatum. He said the vault was
put back in place. The other two graves at
the new cemetery, located at the corner of
Whitewater Grade Road and Gray Road,
were not disturbed.

Ivey Brothers to
headline Chipola
Honors Dance
MARIANNA-The Ivey
Brothers band returns to Chipola
College for the third straight
year to play a benefit dance for
the Chipola Honors Program,
Saturday, March 1.
The theme for the dance is
"Winter in Paris," and will be
held in the arts center-known to
locals as the old field house-the
same venue where the Iveys
played in 1968. Doors open at
7:30 p.m. and guests can dance
the night away or just reminisce
with some great music.
Three brothers-Robert
Ivey, Richard Ivey and Wilson
Ivey-have made up the core
of the group since the mid-60's.
Wilson's son, Chase Ivey, joined
the group in 2004.
The band first performed at a
high school dance in 1965, and
quickly progressed to college
dances at Chipola, FSU, UWF
and UF. Their ability to entertain
with their versatile repertoire
became well known in the Dothan
club scene in the 70's and 80's. A
European tour in 1977 and release
of a local hit "It's Not Worth The
Pain" in 1978 made the group's
fame complete.
The Iveys have played with
and backed The Pointer Sisters,
The Coasters, Jeannie Pruitt,
Billy 'Crash' Craddock," and The
Platters.
Dance tickets are $10 and may
be purchased from any Honors
student or by phoning Smith or
Ivey at 526-2761. Tax-deductible
gifts for the Honors Endowment
may be mailed to the Chipola
College Foundation at 3094 Indian
Circle, Marianna, FL, 32446.

donated it so that it can be preserved and -
enjoyed by the public. The Settlement was -
honored to receive such an important part ... _
of history. Along with the steam boiler, Mr

*o,


A fellow married to one of my
cousins sent me an e-mail titled,
"I am an American." I thought it
would be a tribute to the Ameri-
.-- can ideal to which most Americans
subscribe. But when I opened the
e-mail, I recognized that it was
* one of those right-wing epistles
that say if you don't believe as I


do then you aren't a real American. This fellow is
a Hillary hater and a charter member of the right
wing lunatic fringe, so his email was not a total
surprise.
About the same time that I received his email,
two F-15 pilots from the local fighter wing had a
midair collision over the Gulf of Mexico south
of Panama City. One of the pilots was killed, the
other survived. The accident made the national


.. news.
c I was an F-4 and F-15 pilot in the same
fighter wing on two occasions for a total of
* six years. I've flown many aerial combat sor-
ties over the Gulf. There is little room, if any,
for mistakes or errors in judgment while en-
gaged in high performance aerial combat.
In due course, the local news media reported
the details of the accident and provided the name
of deceased pilot involved in the accident. I ex-
pected to hear a typical American name for the
pilot, something like Joe Smith. Not so. The pi-
lot had a Middle Eastern name, a Muslim name.
In Muslim tradition, the pilot was buried the next
day, and the television coverage showed his fam-
ily and mourners in the traditional white tunics
and pants.
According to the news media, the pilot was a
First Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. He was
born in California, attended college there and
graduated with an engineering degree. He attend-
ed the college ROTC program and was commis-


sioned as an officer in the USAF.
He attended pilot training, and his
flying skills were such that he was
selected to fly the F-15. He has a
brother, and the news media pho-
tographs show a typical American
family.
As I reflected on the short life
of this Air Force officer pilot, I


was struck by the harshness of the e-mail from
my in-law. Would he consider this young man to
be an American? Technically yes since the pilot
was born in America. But the pilot was a Mus-
lim, now what? Was this young man as much of
an American as someone born of generations of
Americans as most of us Caucasians were? In my
view, the answer is yes.
Many people resist the idea that America is a
multicultural society. Like it or not, America is a
potpourri of races, ideologies, cultures and reli-
gions. Unless we are a Native American, we are
all descendents of immigrants, legal or illegal.
Demographic predictions are that America's
population will be half brown and black by 2050.
Hispanics/Latinos are dominant in many areas
of the country. We lived in the Miami area in the
1960s, 1970s and 1980s and the Latin influence
was more pronounced each time we moved back
to that area. With a largely Latin population, I
doubt that you will ever again see a Miami-Dade
County or City of Miami Mayor named "Bob
Smith."
I think that someone like the current mayor
of Los Angles, Antonio R. Villaraigosa, will be
the governor of California within the coming de-
cade. In the southern states, I think that you will
see more Afro-American mayors, governors and
congressional members as America's demograph-
ics change and Caucasians become the minority
race.

., HIDDEN
i TREASURES ]

by Ryan McDougald

HUSBANDS LEAD
YOUR WIVES
Text: Ephesians 5:26 & 27
Maxwell Droke told a story about a
bachelor king of a small country. The
king disagreed with the statement made
by the prime minister that all of the
king's men were guided by their wives'
opinions.
The king had all his male married
subjects called before him. They were
warned of dire punishment if they did not
truthfully answer the question put before
them. "Are you guided by your wife's
opinions and judgment?" asked the prime
minister.
Those who answered yes were moved
to the left. All of the men were moved
-to the group on the left except one who
remained on the right.
"I am glad," said the king, "that there
is one man capable of exercising self-
determination. Tell these sheep-like ones
why you stand alone on the right."
"Sir, when I left home, my wife told
me to keep out of crowds," he replied.
The apostle Paul had been exhorting
the believers to be Spirit filled as they
walk as children of the light. He went
on to challenge them to live a life that
characterizes a Spirit filled Christian. It
is a life characterized by submission. We
submit to the will of Christ. We all sub-
mit to each other. We give each other the
proper respect that is due one another.
This life begins at home with the hus-
band/wife relationship. Paul explains that
the wife is to submit to her husband and
the husband is to love his wife as Christ
loved the church. In doing so, Paul de-
scribes the role of the husband and wife.
The husband should have as his first
priority to lead his wife to a closer walk
with Christ. He is to lead her through the
teaching of the word to live a holy life.
He should be willing to sacrifice himself
to that end. PAID AD

Don't let tax
time become
scam time
You probably have begun to
work over-time to complete your
annual income tax return. You can
be assured that thieves and frauds
are working to take advantage of
this time and obtain your personal
information for their financial
benefit.
Please don't fall from one of
these scams:
t Phony IRS emails: The IRS
does not use email to contact
taxpayers! You may receive
an email which reads "IRS
Notification" in the subject line
and may include a realistic IRS
logo. The claim is that a tax
refund-maybe from a prior year-
is due and that the consumer
should complete and fax the
attached form or click on a link
to submit personal information
directly to the IRS. This is a
scam! Please do not provide your
personal or financial information
in this manner.
False "bank" correspondence
and phony forms: Mail or
email claiming to be from the
consumer's bank and requesting
an update of records should
raise a red flag. An area bank's
logo and phone number were
recently high-jacked in such an
effort. Remember, your bank
has your information-including
your account number-and will
not request that information by
telephone or internet. If you
are suspicious about any mail
or email claiming to be from
your bank; call the bank! Do not
share your personal or financial
information with anyone you do
not trust.
If you have any questions or
suspect that you may have been
targeted by such a scam; call you
local law enforcement agency or
the State Attorney's Office.

Chairman Shuler opened the Pub-
lic Hearing at 6:35 p.m and announced
the purpose of the hearing. He then
opened the floor for comments from
the public. There were no comments.
He inquired if there were comments
from the council. Willis noted that it
worked well on Phase I. Whitfield
moved to approve the use of the City's
own resources for the Phase II Sewer
Connections identified above, second-
ed by Willis, all voted in favor. Chair-
man Shuler Closed the Public Hearing
at 6:40 p.m. and resumed the Regular
Council meeting.
Preble-Rish updated the Council
on the Wastewater Phase II Project.
Engineer Philip Jones indicated that
the City was approximately 2 weeks
away from substantial and final com-
pletion. He indicated that there would
be a final change order, pending the
council's approval, for an increase
in contract amount of $12,600.75 for
limerock coverage on the dirt roads to
stabilize the roads and provide a bet-
ter base for preparing to pave, and a
contract extension of 56 days, which
the engineers felt was appropriate due
to circumstances out of the contrac-
tor's control. Willis moved to approve
the final change order contingent upon
the engineer's report of substantial


to use the City of Bristol stormwater
drainage system for the purpose of
washing semis, excluding the engines
and other areas containing grease or
contaminants, indicating that this was
an environmental requirement in order
for him to become permitted to wash
the semis. He indicated that he uses
equipment that is water conservative
and expects the runoff to be minimal.
Whitfield moved to approve Kent's
request, seconded by Reddick, ap-
proved by all.
The council discussed the need to
establish a policy regarding who is re-
sponsible for sewer line maintenance
on private property, as well as who is
responsible for grinder pump mainte-
nance at residences and businesses.
Shuler moved to implement a policy
whereby the resident/homeowner
would be responsible for sewer line
maintenance from the right-of-way to
the home, and the City would retain
responsibility for grinder pump main-
tenance. Motion failed for lack of a
second. Chairman Willis tabled this
item and asked Operator Wahlquist,
with Clerk Hatcher's assistance, to ob-
tain the written policy of surrounding
wastewater systems regarding grinder
pump maintenance, and bring back a
draft policy for the council to consider
at a future meeting.
Shannon Phillips, Maintenance Su-
pervisor inquired as to whether Ken-
neth Edwards, who is moving a new
trailer into Neil Subdivision and wishes
to connect to the Phase II Wastewater
System will qualify for free connection
by the City or-will have to pay for the
cost of the connection. The general
consensus of the Council was that new

proved by all.
Engineer Philip Jones also rec-
ommended that the Council consider
purchasing a 3 phase generator out of
contingency monies that are remain-
ing in the USDA grant. Chairman Shul-
er asked the engineers and Operator
Michael Wahlquist to bring back more
information to the council at the next
meeting on propane vs. diesel gen-
erators with a recommendation for the
council's consideration.
Willis moved to submit an Engi-
neering Amendment to USDA for ap-
proval in the amount of $49,760 for
two re-designs of the Phase II WW
Project due to budget issues, second-
ed by Reddick, carried by all.
Arlene Williams made a third re-
quest for a street light to be installed
in front of her home located at 12226
NW Baker Street. Chairman* Shuler
acknowledged that it was a very dark
location. Reddick motioned to have
a street light installed at this Baker
Street location, seconded by Willis,
approved by all.
Operator Michael Wahlquist sug-
gested that the council consider imple-
menting a policy making the customer
responsible for sewer line maintenance
from the customer's home to the City's
clean-out, as well as recommending
that the City consider charging the
customer for grinder pump repairs/
maintenance, indicating that this was
the policy of many surrounding waste-


residences not included in the plans
at the point of substantial completion
of the Wastewater Project Phase II,
which was December 21, 2007, will be
responsible for the cost of connecting
to the system.
Clerk Hatcher inquired as to the
council's feelings on Billy Boothe's
request to change the late date for re-
ceiving water bills from the 10th day
of the month to the 15th day of the
month, an item that was tabled from
last month's agenda. Fairchild indicat-
ed that he felt that the 10th day of the
month would be sufficient if we'll honor
the postmark on envelopes. No action
was taken.
Brigham Shuler suggested that the
Council consider giving administrative
leave to employees unable to work
on election day(s) due to use of city
hall as a voting precinct. The general
consensus of the council was that the
maintenance employees should be
able to plan work activities away from
city hall, so as not to interfere with the
polling area; and that Clerk Hatcher
should modify Sarah Brown's work
schedule to allow her to make up the
8 hours that she will lose due to the
closing of city hall for use as a voting
precinct.
The Apalachee Valley VFW Post
12010 submitted a letter to the Coun-
cil regarding the flying of flags on holi-
days. They inquired as to why the City
failed to display the American flags for
Veterans Day 2007, and requested
that the council approve displaying
the flags for a minimum of three days
for the following holidays: President's
Day, Armed Forces Day, Memorial
Day, Flag Day, Independence Day,
Patriot Day, Veterans Day, Pearl Har-
bor Day. Shannon Phillips indicated
that failing to display the flags was an
oversight, and indicated that he had
since marked his calendar to ensure
that this would not happen again.
Shuler moved to approve the flying
of the flags for a minimum of 3 days
on the holidays listed above, and for
Clerk Hatcher to draft a response back
to the VFW Post 12010 with a written
apology and explanation for our failure
to display the flags on Veteran's Day.
Whitfield seconded the motion. Motion
carried unanimously.
There being no further business,
Shuler moved to adjourn, seconded
by Fairchild, all voted in favor. Meeting

water system Chairman Shuler tabled
this item, asking to move it to the Jan-
uary meeting agenda.
Operator Michael Wahlquist asked
the council for clarification on his al-
lowed use of the City Vehicle. Willis
indicated that he was okay with his
current use of the vehicle. The gen-
eral consensus of the council was that
Wahlquist could continue to use the
city vehicle as he currently is using it,
indicating that they trusted his judg-
ment in knowing what was appropriate
and what was not, so long as they are
not notified of blatant abuse.
By general consensus, the council
authorized the Maintenance Dept. to
take the tractor back to the repair shop
for repairs/warranty work to be done.
The council, by general consensus,
authorized Clerk Hatcher to rollover
Wakulla Bank CD #527 which matures
on 12/16/07 with Wakulla Bank unless
a better rate with comparable term is
available thru Superior Bank, in which
case the chairman will call a special
meeting.
Due to Larry Strickland's retire-
ment that was effective November
30, 2007, Willis moved to 1) officially
promote Shannon Phillips to Public
Works Maintenance Supervisor posi-
tion effective December 1, 2007 with
a $2.02 raise per hour, yielding $3,500
annual raise for FY 07-08 to be dis-
tributed over the next ten months 2)
to give maintenance worker Richard
Mims a $2.02 raise per hour, yielding
$3,500 annual raise for FY 2007-08 to
be distributed over the next ten months
3) to give a $10,000 raise to Michael
Wahlquist to be distributed over the
next ten months, setting his annual
salary as Water/Wastewater Opera-
tor at $65,125 for FY 2007-08, with
a cap to be set on this salary for the
next 3 fiscal years. Whitfield seconded
the motion. During discussion, Clerk
Hatcher advised the council that she
was opposed to the salary increase


for Operator Wahlquist, indicating that
she felt this was an undue burden on
our small wastewater system and our
citizens. Motion carried 3:1 with Red-
dick voting nay.
Willis moved to approve giving all
employees a $100 Christmas Bonus,
seconded by Reddick, approved by
all.
Whitfield moved to distribute De-
cember's payroll on December 21,
2007, seconded by Reddick, carried
unanimously.
Clerk Hatcher advised the Council
that Billy Booth has suggested that
the Council consider changing the
late date for water bills from the 10th
day of the month to the 15th day of
the month. Clerk Hatcher advised
the council that this would have to
be changed by ordinance since it is.
currently set by ordinance. Chairman
Shuler tabled this item, requesting that
it be placed on next month's agenda
for further discussion.
Chairman Shuler suggested that
the Council begin thinking about
implementing Occupational Licens-
ing for better regulation of local busi-
nesses and suggested that we begin
attending workshops and educating
ourselves on this. He also suggested
that we think seriously about annexing
more areas into the city limits and be-
gin pursuing this end.
John Shuler questioned the Coun-
cil of the legality of charging him busi-
ness rates at his flea market/junk yard.
Per Attorney House's advice, John
Shuler's questions regarding the va-
lidity of charging him business rates
will be addressed during litigation or
at another time outside of the regular
meeting.
Their being no further business,
Whitfield moved to adjourn, seconded
by Willis, all voted in favor. Meeting
adjourned at 8:13 p.m.

Kim Peacock selected Calhoun County Teacher of the Year


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Teachers never know what to expect when
they walk into a classroom full of young
children.
But in the case of Blountstown Elementary
School science teacher Kim Peacock, that
situation is reversed.
The kids have learned she'll go to great lengths
to make sure they understand the day's lesson.
She makes up songs, leads dances and even takes
them to the playground to get the point across.
When students were having trouble
understanding the concept of geometric angles,
she took them outside. "They just couldn't get
it," she says. She divided the students into teams,
assigned captains and selected one child to be the
vertex, or center, of the angle. After physically
standing together to make the patterns, the
concept came together.
Her fourth-graders learned her version of the
Macarena after she changed the words to reflect
what she wanted them all to know: the list of
seven continents.
"North America was the right hand, South
America was the left hand," she explains. At the
point in the dance where each hand is placed on
the head, one represented Europe and the other
hand stood for Asia. As they took their hands
from their head to their hips, the students called


Kim Peacock of Altha is Calhoun County's Teacher of the Year.
The FSU graduate is in her 26th year of teaching at Blountstown
Elementary. For 18 years, she taught preschool, spent five years
with third graders and is now teaching fourth graders. She and
her husband, Allen, have two children, Troy, 22, and 18-year-old


Kaitlin.


out "Africa" for one side and "Antarctica" for the other.
They swiveled their hips as they called out "Australia."
Later, where the question appeared on a test, "I could
see them mouthing the song to themselves," she says.
They remembered their continents.
"When we did the water cycle, they had to know
how salt got into the ocean. I made up this song about
the Apalachicola River and sang about how it goes over
rocks, picks up salt and carries it to the ocean," she says.
That was last August. She was pleased to find they still
knew it in December. "I don't want to teach it, move on
and then have them forget it."
While it's important that they learn, "I want them to
have a good time and want to come to school," she says.
She's also aware, sadly, that for some of her students over
her 26 year teaching career, "Being at school is the only
time they feel safe."
When students misbehave, she knows that it often


JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTO


means there's a deeper problem. She has heard some
heartbreaking stories when she's taken a child aside to
ask "What's wrong?"
Children have told her about parental fights and being
passed around to stay with different relatives, feeling that
no one wants them. More than one child has confessed
that mom or dad is in jail. Even sadder was the time she
approached a child who was hostile and picking fights.
When she and the boy had a private moment, she asked
what the matter was. He burst into tears. "My mama's
been out of prison three months and hasn't come to see
me," he sobbed.
She sympathizes, listens and shares problems she had
as a youngster to let them know she remembers how scary
things can be sometimes.
On the first day of school, she gives a letter to the
students in which she promises, "I'm not going to let
you fail, I'm going to make it where you can learn


and make it interesting. I'll do anything in my
power to help when you have a problem." She
has frequent contact with parents, and not just
when someone's in trouble. In fact, she's made
it her personal mission to see that parents don't
dread that phone call from the teacher. "The key
to communicating effectively with parents is to
communicate continually not just when there is
a problem," she says.
When a student does something really well,
or perhaps a problem child makes an effort to
behave, she takes notice and points it out to the
parents. Sometimes she makes the phone call
and puts the student on the phone to share their
good news.
One time, a mother brought her son to class on
the first day and made it clear there was no point
in calling her when he misbehaved.
In front of the child, the mother said, "He's bad.
He stays in trouble. He's got a stinking attitude.
Don't.call me. I can't do anything with him."
The teacher later learned the child was troubled
because his father had left and told him he would
return the next weekend. That was two years
earlier. The little boy had turned into a bully.
Instead of concentrating on how he acted
out around others, she waited for a good day. It
finally came. She called his home and got his


grandmother. "I just caught him being good," the teacher
told her, bragging on his conduct that day in front of
him. Knowing that his teacher was more excited about
him being good than upset about him being bad was the
motivation he needed. "We bonded," she says, "and his
grades came up."
She says it's simple. "All these kids want is for you to
love them, and when they know that, they'll do anything
if they think it makes you happy."
She attends summer institutes, workshops and
professional development training to learn all she can
in her field, but there's one very simple way she can
gauge her impact in the classroom. "I know that I have
accomplished what I set out to do as a teacher every time
a former student, whether 30 years old or 11, comes to see
me and says, 'I know that I was your favorite student,'"
she said.


BES Secretary Rose Mary Swilley named School Employee of the Year


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
er job title is School Secretary, but it
doesn't begin to cover the duties that
come her way every day.
Rose Mary Swilley is the first person most
people see when they come to Blountstown
Elementary. She runs the office, does payroll and
answers the phone, but as soon as the students
start pouring through the doors each morning,
her job description expands.
She says her main duty is "making sure
everything's running as smooth as possible,
seeing that the teachers and students have
everything they need when they need it." That
can be a hectic job some days.
She started at the school 11 years ago, working
with handicapped students for three years. She
later became the school nurse's aide. When the
secretary's job opened, she applied and found
herself in the middle of everything.
Now, on any given day, she may be on the
phone calling in substitutes when a teacher isAs sci

When a youngster soils their pants, she's the
one who digs through the clothing closet to find

times, she whips out a needle and thread to make a repairs

And at least one student believes she is in charge of

Knowing that there are a few students who don't want
to be at school at all, she makes a point to say 'hello' and
let them know she's glad they are there. She keeps candy
at her desk for when someone needs a perk-up. Other
times, when it just looks like a youngster needs a friend,


she'll sit with them at lunch. She says, "we do
whatever it takes" to keep kids motivated about
school. "Sometimes somebody just needs a hug
because they had a bad morning."
Things calm down a little after 9 a.m. as kids
get settled into the school day and Rose Mary
can return to her office duties. Things pick up
around lunchtime. That's when most of the phone
calls start. Everyday there are bus changes for
students. Parents call to let her know who can
go home with a friend or who's supposed to be
let off at grandma's instead of home. She juggles
the messages and checks on the kids to be sure
they're on the right bus and lets the driver know
where they are to go.
From 2:30 to 3:00, everybody's rushing
around to get the busses loaded. The phones are
ringing, kids are running and the walkie talkies
the teachers use are crackling as they oversee
more than half the student body moving from
class to the bus.
Rose Mary takes a good look around before
willey leaving. Once or twice each week, someone

She adds "there aren't many jobs that have
such a good atmosphere." Principal Vicki Davis "has
a handle on everything," she says. "We know what we
have to do, we know the day-to-day routines. Everybody
just does what they're supposed to do and we back each
other up."

Maxie Waldorff added to the Wall of


Fame at Tallahassee Regional Airport


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Maxie Waldorff was honored last week when
he was added to the Wall of Fame at Tallahassee
Regional Airport. He was recognized for his
"outstanding commitment, dedication and
performance in the field of aviation."
The 74-year-old Altha native's fascination
with-flying started when he watched World War
II pilots doing training exercises in a military
auxiliary field in Altha..
Since getting his pilot's license in 1968, he
has owned six different aircraft. He currently
has a J-3 Piper Cherokee single engine four-
person plane.
His interest in flying has benefited the
community since his efforts helped establish
a new Calhoun County Airport in 2004. The
previous airstrip that had been in use for 50 years
along State Road 20 was often unusable because
it was in a flood zone. The proximity to the river
also prevented the old site from expanding since
it did not qualify for state or federal funding.
He retired from the family hardware store


in 2000 and now stays busy volunteering as
manager of the new airport, which is growing.
The airport, located on Hwy. 71, has 12
T-hangars with plans for 24 more to be built.
"We've already got a waiting list," Waldorff
said. The site also has a 10,000 square foot
maintenance yard and an office.
"We've been getting state money and now
we've qualified for federal money," he said.
"Next week we're taking bids on a $2.5 million
project to pave the runway and build an access
road."
The airport is an important incentive for
businesses looking for new places to locate and
is expected to contribute to growth in the area.
He is the tenth person to be inducted into the

AND A TITLE V AIR OPERATION PERMIT RENEWAL

NOTICE TO CREDITORS

(Summary Administration)


The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (permitting authority)
gives notice of its intent to issue an Air Construction Permit and a Title V Air
Operation Permit Renewal to North Florida Lumber for their Bristol Lumber
Mill located at Highway 12 South, Liberty County. The applicant's name and
address are: Mr. C. Finley McRae, President, North Florida Lumber, Inc.,
Post Office Box 610, Bristol, Florida 32321. This facility consists of a log de-
barker, saw mill, wood waste handling and storage system, four steam heated
drying kilns, planer mill and three boilers that provide heat to the kilns.

Permit 0770007-011-AC increases allowable dimensional lumber drying and
wood utility pole drying in all four Kilns. Dimensional lumber drying capacity
increases from 106,651,489 board feet of lumber to 125,000,000 board feet
of lumber. Pole drying capacity increases form 777,359 cubic feet per year
to 1.500.000 cubic feet per year. Emission factors used in permit applica-
tion File No. 0770007-012-AV were updated since permits 0770007-002-AV,
0770007-007-AV. Therefore comparison calculations (using emission fac-
tors for permit application File No. 0770007-012-AV on all the permits com-
pared) of NOX, CO, PM, SO02, VOC, and Methanol were done for permits
0770007-002-AV, 0770007-005-AC, 0770007-006-AC, 0770007-007-AV, and
permit application File No. 0770007-012-AV to determine emission changes.
The results indicate the following: 1) potential emissions of NOX, CO, PM,
S02, and VOC for the boilers, used to supply steam to the drying kilns, do
not increase emissions over currently permitted levels, and 2) potential emis-
sions of VOC and Methanol for the drying kilns, increase 25.4 tons per year
and 3.5 tons per year, respectively. These emissions increases are below
PSD threshold limits.

Permit 0770007-012-AV is a renewal of the Title V operation Permit for North
Florida Lumber. The renewal includes the increase of dimensional lumber
drying capacity and pole drying capacity to 125,000,000 board feet and
1,500,000 cubic feet per year (permit 0770007-011-AC) and removal of re-
quirements of 40 CFR 63 Subpart DDDDD due to its vacature late summer
2007.

The permitting authority will issue the Air Construction Permit and the PRO-
POSED Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal and subsequent FINAL Title V
Air Operation Permit Renewal, in accordance with the conditions of the Draft
Air Construction Permit and the DRAFT Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal
unless a response received in accordance with the following procedures re-
sults in a different decision or significant change of terms or conditions.

The permitting authority will accept written comments concerning the pro-
posed Draft Air Construction Permit issuance action for a period of 14
(fourteen) days from the date of publication of this Public Notice. Written
comments should be provided to the Northwest District Office, 160 Govern-
mental Center, Pensacola FL 32502-5794 (Telephone: 850/595-8300; Fax:
850/595-8096). Any written comments filed shall be made available for public
inspection. If written comments received result in a significant change in this
Draft Air Construction Permit, the permitting authority shall issue a Revised
Draft Air Construction Permit and require, if applicable, another Public No-
tice.

The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the DRAFT
Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal for a period of thirty (30) days from the
date of publication of this Public Notice. Written comments must be post-
marked and all facsimile comments must be received by the close of busi-
ness (5:00 pm), on or before the end of this 30-day period, by the Permitting
Authority at Northwest District Office, 160 Governmental Center, Pensacola
FL 32502-5794 (Telephone: 850/595-8300:; Fax: 850/595-8096),-or facsimile.
As part of his or her comments, any person may also request that the Permit-
ting Authority hold a public meeting on this permitting action. If the Permitting
Authority determines there is sufficient interest for a public meeting, it will
publish notice of the time, date, and location on the Department's official
web site for notices at "http://tlhora6.dep.state.fl.us/onw" http://tlhora6.dep.
state.fl.us/onw and in a newspaper of general circulation in the area affected
by the permitting action. For additional information, contact the Permitting
Authority at the above address or phone number. If written comments or
comments received at a public meeting result in a significant change to the
DRAFT Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal, the Permitting Authority shall
issue a Revised DRAFT Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal and require, if
applicable, another Public Notice. All comments filed will be made available
for public inspection:

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting
decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes (F.S.). The petition must contain
the information set forth below and must be filed (received) in the Office of
General Counsel, Twin Towers Office Building, Mail Station 35, 2600 Blair
Stone Road, Tallahassee FL 32399-2400. (Telephone: 850/245-2242, Fax:
850/245-2300. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to
written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 (fourteen)
days of publication of the public notice or within 14 (fourteen) days of receipt


of the notice of intent, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S.,
however, any person who asked the permitting authority for notice of agency
action may file a petition within 14 (fourteen) days of receipt of that notice,
regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the peti-
tion to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition within the applicable time period shall
constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determi-
nation (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in
this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention
will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion
in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).

A petition that disputes the material facts on which the permitting authority's
action is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file
or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; name
address and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any,
which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the
proceeding; and an explanation of how petitioner's substantial rights will
be affected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when the petitioner received notice of the
agency action or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none,
the petition must so state;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules
and statutes which entitle petitioner to relief;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action; and,
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the
action petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency's
proposed action.

A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the permitting
authority's action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and
otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required
by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition means that the permitting authority's fi-
nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice of intent.
Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final deci-
sion of the permitting authority on the applications) have the right to petition
to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements
set forth above.

Mediation is not available for this proceeding.

In addition to the above, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section
7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60
(sixty) days of the expiration of the Administrator's 45 (forty-five) day review
period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to issuance
of any permits. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the permits
that were raised with reasonable specificity during the 30 (thirty) day public
comment period provided in this notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to
the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections
within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose af-
ter the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA
does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the
provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions filed with the Administrator of
EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must
be filed with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W.,
Washington, D.C. 20460.

STUDENTS OF ALTHA SCHOOL RAISE $1,738.58 FOR
THE LEUKEMIA AND LYMPHOMA SOCIETY
by Cayla Coxwell
Students at Altha School recently raised funds for the Pennies for Patients
program to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. After three weeks
of students bringing their spare change to school, the total amount raised
was $1,738.58!
The top fundraising class was second grade. They raised $451.97! As a
reward they will be treated to a catered luncheon by the Society. "I am so
proud of our students," said Principal Ronnie Hand. "They did a great job
of giving selflessly and they really understand the mission of the Society
and what the money is used for."
Leukemia is the number one fatal cancer among children and young
adults under the age of twenty. An estimated 747,465 Americans have blood
cancers, and every five minutes, someone new is diagnosed. Since 1992,
more than $100 million dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare
change by elementary, middle and high school students across the country.,
The mission of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is to cure leukemia,
lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of
life of patients and their families.
"These students serve as an example to all of us through their commitment
to helping others," said Jennifer Symmes, Campaign Manager for the
Northern Florida Chapter

Altha Wildcats Varsity baseball team is a 'purrfect' 5-0


ALTHA, FEBRUARY
18-"Don't know much about
history..." so a line from a 1950s
tune goes.
It's uncertain how much history
the Wildcats know but they sure
know how to make history. And
they made it twice in one week.
Last week they became the
first Altha varsity baseball team
to beat a 4-A team in the regular
season and they walked off the
diamond last Saturday night
sporting a perfect 5-0 season
record.
It took the Wildcats (5-0; 0-0,
2-2A) only 1:55 minutes last
Monday night to ten-run the East
Gadsden Jaguars, 13-3, in five
innings.
Although the Jaguars (1-2;
0-0, 2-4A) touched up Altha's
Cale Chafin (1-0) for a run in the
first inning and two more in the
third, Chafin finally settled in and
carved up East Gadsden.
"Cale pitched a great game,"
said Altha head coach Arthur
Faurot.
After he surrendered those 3
earned runs, Chafin settled in, got
his off-speed pitch working and
the Jaguars were history. Of his
83 pitches Cale gave up 6 hits,
issued a walk, and struck out 9
batters.
Altha tied the game at 1-1 in
the second inning. With two outs,
Cale helped himself out with his
bat. He reached first base on a
shortstop's error, stole second,
and scored on Gary Chew's single
down the first base line.
In the third inning the rest
of the Wildcats' offense got
dialed in. Lead-off batter Keith
Kirkpatrick swung on the third
strike but reached first base on the
catcher's error. Kirkpatrick stole
second base and advanced to third
after ,Josh McIntosh singled back
through the box. McIntosh made
his way to second on a fielder's
choice. Tad Scott brought both
runners home after he singled
back up the middle.
Josh Warner was issued a
walk to begin the fourth inning
and he moved to second base
on a wild pitch. Juan Alejos
drew a walk and both runners
moved up a base on a wild pitch.
Keith Kirkpatrick's walk loaded
the bases. A sacrifice fly to
centerfield by Josh McIntosh
scored Warner. Alejos stole third
base and Kirkpatrick made it to
second on the fielder's choice.
The sacks were full of Wildcats
again after Tad Scott walked.
Noah Byler was credited with a
RBI after his walk scored Alejos.
Ethan Byler's sacrifice fly to
centerfield plated Kirkpatrick and
gave Altha a 7-3 lead.
The Wildcats picked up in the
fifth inning where they left off in
the fourth-scoring 6 more runs.
Tony Golden got it started with a
single to right centerfield. Altha
had runners at first and second
after Jake Edenfield ripped his
first double of the season to right
field. Keith Kirkpatrick scored
Golden on his sacrifice fly to
centerfield. Josh Mclntosh's


single to left centerfield put
Wildcats on the comers. McIntosh
reached second on the catcher's
indifference. Tad Scott plated
Edenfield on his single back
up the middle and Scott made
his way to second, courtesy of
a fielder's choice. Once again
the bases were juiced after Noah
Byler walked. McIntosh and
Scott crossed home plate after
Ethan Byler singled to left field.
Cale Chafin laid down a bunt just
inside the first base line for a base
hit. Again, the bases were loaded
and Gary Chew's walk allowed
Noah to touch home plate. The
game ended when Edenfield
drew a two-out walk that scored
Ethan and gave Altha their 13-3
victory.
The Wildcats produced those
13.runs on 10 hits that resulted
in 12 runs being batted in (RBI).
They were issued 9 walks and
struck out only 9 times.
"They had some good athletes,"
observed Coach Faurot. (Indeed,
East Gadsden's centerfielder
Charles Tuazon was rightly fit
the mold of a Jaguar. He ranged
from left centerfield to right
centerfield hauling in 7 fly balls.)
"However, East Gadsden doesn't
put a lot of emphasis on baseball
and because of that their pitching
is suffering."
Altha's offensive leader was
Tad Scott who had 2 hits in his 3
at bats and he scored twice. Also,
Tad had 2 RBI and a stolen base.
Josh McIntosh had a 2 for 3 night,
touched home plate twice and
was credited with a RBI. Cale
Chafin helped himself with a 2 for
3 performance. He scored a run
and stole 2 bases. Tony Golden
singled in his two at bats and he
crossed home plate once. Jake
Edenfield doubled in his only
at bat and he was credited with
a RBI along with a stolen base.
Gary Chew was 1 for 3 with 2
RBI and 2 stolen bases. Going
1 for 4, racking up 3 RBI and
scoring a run was Ethan Byler.
ALTHA, FEBRUARY 19-On
a sun-splashed afternoon Altha
Public School turned out to cheer
the Wildcats on to a 10-2 win over
the Xucilla Christian Warriors
(1-2; 0-0, 3-1A)..

The Warriors plated their 2
unearned runs in the fourth and
seventh innings.
Altha (4-0; 0-0, 2-2A) took
a 2-1 lead in the second inning.
With one out Ethan Byler got the
Wildcats rolling with a single to
right field. A wild pitch allowed
him to move to second. Cale
Chafin's fly out to the right fielder
allowed Ethan to advance to third
base. Gary Chew reached on
an error by the second baseman
and Ethan scored on the error.
Chew stole second base and Tony
Golden's single through the left
side brought Chew home.
The Wildcats added 3 more
runs to their side of the ledger in
the third frame. Tad Scott drew
a one-out walk. A catcher's
error found Scott standing on
second base. Noah Byler ripped
a grass-burner through the left
side to plate Scott. Ethan Byler
hammered a double to right
centerfield to score his brother,
Noah. With two outs Gary Chew
singled through the right side.
Notching his third RBI of the
afternoon, Tony Golden slammed
a double to centerfield that scored
Ethan and Chew.
In the fourth inning Tad Scott
had a two-out single back up
the middle. Then Noah Byler
stepped to the plate and jacked a
two-run homer to left field. That
gave the Wildcats an 8-1 lead.
Altha's final two runs came in
the sixth inning. Josh McIntosh
led by cranking his second double
of the season to right field. Tad
Scott singled through the right
side. Ethan Byler's single down
the third base line allowed
McIntosh to touch the dish. Cale
Chafin drew a walk to load the
bases and Gary Chew's infield

Chasing a runaway chicken


while Main Street Bristol burns


As recounted by /7-
Gordon Parker Revell
January 11, 1938 started 5 1
out like any ordinary day :
for a small-town Florida boy
in the 1930s. In those days,
children were expected to .
entertain themselves, which
meant that immediately after
breakfast I went outside the
house to play until I was "
called in for lunch.
In 1938, Iwas seven years
old. At that age, I was warned Ethel Mae (Dollie) Harrell Revell is
to stay pretty close to my Harrell Wood Revell, who at the ag
home and my mother while in office in the state; Gordon Parke
home and my mother who died in 2003 at the age of 74,
my brother, only four years
older, could wander afar.
Riding his pony (or in a cart pulled by a goat), Harrell
Wood had the freedom to visit friends or go fishing and
swimming.
Having no "store-bought" toys, all of us had to use our
imaginations and ingenuity to create games and toys. We
played with the dogs and cats or whatever animals belonged
to the family. Sometimes, we might choose to follow the
hired help around the farm as they went about their daily
chores.
When Mama called me from the yard of our farmhouse
to go with her to another farm to buy some "fryers," I
willingly left my play to join her in our old car. As she
drove us down the road, I was eagerly anticipating the
excitement of chasing and catching chickens. Perhaps I
was looking forward to the smell and taste of fried chicken
for Sunday dinner.
In order to purchase fresh vegetables, eggs, milk or
chickens, it was necessary to visit the farm nearest your
home. Unless, of course, you had a milk cow, a vegetable
garden and hens who laid eggs and hatched baby chicks.
When we arrived at the farm where we were to purchase
the chickens, Mama bargained for three. In order to
transport the live chickens, it was necessary to tie their
legs together so they couldn't get away. The lady from
whom we purchased the chickens had string available
to tie up two of the chickens, but no string for the third.

(DtrinL! the Depression, times
%% ere bou2h. Even string was hard
tu. come by.)
MKln.i quickly solved that
dileinma by offering to tie the
third chicken's legs with her
handkeidhief. This was the same
handkerchief which she kept
safei\ pinned to her dress with
a big safety pin. Her money was
tightly tied up in one comer ofthe
handkerchief for safe keeping.
After Mama paid the lady for
the chickens, she again knotted
the money she had left in one
corner of the handkerchief. They


then proceeded to tie the legs
of the unfortunate chicken. We
put all three chickens into the car and drove back toward
Bristol.
As the car neared our farm just on the outskirts of Bristol
(where Mrs. Schmarje lives now) we could see a great cloud
of smoke. Curious about what was burning and concerned
because both sets of my grandparents lived in town, Mama
drove on past our farmhouse and into Bristol. We soon
discovered that Main Street Bristol was in flames. The fire
had spread rapidly down one side of the street, which was
understandable since the buildings were so close together,
some of them even shared walls.
The first store on the side of the street burning was a
large red brick building which housed the Suwanee Store,
sometimes called the Yellow Front, on one side and Dr.
Burns' Drugstore on the other side. The Suwanee Store
was a grocery and dry goods store. Henry Rooks was the
proprietor. This was the only building not destroyed by the
fire that day. Directly behind the Suwanee Store was a barber
shop run by Cap Bateman and Mansel Revell. Also, a real
estate office operated by Jabe Harrell.
Other businesses completely burned down were Mrs.
Rena Shuler's Dress Shop (Mrs. Rena was famous for
making women's hats and selling them in her shop); George
Bateman's Grocery Store; Doc Hatton's Pool Hall; Louis

'Plate for a Plate' challenge

to help spur sales of new

FFA specialty license plate
TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson is teaming up with the Florida FFA Association to
encourage sales of the FFA specialty license plate. As part of his"
"Plate for a Plate" challenge, Bronson is calling upon FFA chapters
throughout the state to increase sales of the plate, which generates
revenue for the agri-science education organization.
As a reward for selling the most license plates during the "Plate
for a Plate" contest period, the winning FFA chapter will win a
"Fresh from Florida Feast" prepared by award-winning Chef Justin
Timineri of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, as. well as a "Field Day with Commissioner Bronson."
In addition, Bronson will serve as guest agriculture teacher for the
day. The "Plate for a Plate" contest begins March 1 and ends April
30, 2008.
"I am pleased to host this contest to help spur sales of the FFA
specialty license plate," Bronson said. "FFA helps prepare students
for the future through agricultural education, and proceeds from
license plate sales help sustain, enhance and expand these important
programs. I hope that many motorists throughout Florida will help
these students by purchasing the FFA specialty license plate through
their local FFA chapter."
More than 15,000 agri-science education students participate in
the Florida FFA Association. Proceeds from the sale of the FFA
specialty license plate directly benefit FFA members, agricultural
education, students and teachers throughout Florida. FFA makes
a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their
potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success
through agricultural education.
The National FFA Organization, formerly known as the Future
Farmers of America, is a national youth organization of 500,823
student members in 7,358 local FFA chapters in all 50 states, Puerto
Rico and the Virgin Islands. The National FFA Organization changed
its name in 1988 in recognition of the growth and diversity of
agriculture and agricultural education. For more information, visit

scurrying about
attempting to
retrieve merchandise save what they
could and keep the fire from spreading
to the other side of the street. Directly
across from the Suwanee Store stood the
W.S. Larkins Hotel, owned and operated
by Mrs. Jessie Larkins. In danger also
were Michaux' Barber Shop, a two-story
restaurant and Boarding House run by
Eugene Weaver, Donna Brown's residence,
Lee Duggar's Service Station and a two-
story building called the Woodmen of the
World Building.
On the first floor of this building,
Hayden Bateman operated a furniture store.
Upstairs there was a large meeting room.
Further down the street, Joe Peters ran a
Combination Store.
Bristol was a thriving town, home to
a variety of businesses most of them
on Main Street, one street over (north)
from Highway 20. Liberty County High
School, serving all grades 1-12 and built
in the 1930s, was almost the only building


on Highway 20 at
that time. Down on
the comer of River
Street and Highway
20, Paul Ford had a
home and a garage.
Going down River
Street, Dr. Rhoden
had a drugstore.
There was also a
pool room and a
service station.
Still on River
Street, but crossing
Main Street, stood
the Post Office.
The Postmistress
for many years
was Elma Shuler.
The homes of Carl
Baker, John Harvell
and Tom Oxendine
followed. Mr.
Oxendine repaired
clocks and watches


out of his home.
Further down River Street stood the old
Courthouse and the old Jail. Neither of
them burned at this time.
Amid the confusion and excitement of
the fire, the chickens escaped from the car.
We easily caught the two tied with string,
but the one tied with Mama's handkerchief
managed to get her feet free of her bonds
and went running down Main Street with
Mama's handkerchief still wrapped around
one leg.
Mama hollered, "Catch the chicken!
She's got my money!" Money in the 1930s
was a precious commodity, too important to
allow a runaway chicken to keep it.
As Bristol burned, I chased the chicken
and Mama's money. Several other children
joined the chase and we managed to catch
the chicken and save Mama's money.
Bristol was not as lucky. Many of
Bristol's business owners went home
saddened by the day's events.

Weeds can be a gardener's
worst nightmare. To help keep
them in check, you can use pre-
emergence herbicide products.
To get maximum effect from
a pre-emergence herbicide, it
must be applied at the right time.
Timing is everything in gardening
especially when it comes to
controlling weeds in your lawn.
Being late-February, most
weeds that are currently growing
in your lawn are probably winter
weeds. They germinated last
fall, remained small through mid-
winter, and are now making rapid
vegetative growth. Soon, they
will begin flowering and going
to seed. Winter weeds begin to
decline as hot weather arrives.
The summer weeds, on the other
hand, have not yet begun to
germinate. So now is the time
to get a head start on controlling
bothersome summer weeds.
The first and best method
of weed control begins with
proper management practices that
encourage a dense, thriving turf.
Healthy turf shades the soil so
sunlight can't reach weed seeds
that are ready to germinate. A
thick turf also minimizes the

Pre-emergence herbicides are
generally effective in controlling
weeds from six to twelve weeks
following application. Most will
begin to degrade when exposed
to the environment. Therefore,
to obtain season-long control,
an additional application should
follow six to nine weeks after the
initial one.
Some pre-emergence
herbicides to look for include
dithiopyr (Vigoro Weed
Stop); oryzalin (Surflan); or
pendimethalin (Lesco PRE-M).
Be sure to read and follow label
directions.
After doing a quick survey at
local stores, it's very hard to find
just a pre-emergence herbicide.
What you will find are products
that are combinations of high-
nitrogen fertilizer and herbicides,
commonly known as weed-n-
feeds.
It is still too early to apply
a nitrogen-containing fertilizer
on our mostly-dormant lawns
in Northwest Florida. Adding
nitrogen now will fertilizer your
existing weeds. It may also
stimulate the grass which makes
it more susceptible to winter kill
when we get our next cold snap.
In general, it's best to apply
your herbicides separately from
fertilizers.
It's all in the timing. Pre-
emergence herbicides should go
down very soon, but most lawns
should wait until April for their
spring fertilization.
For additional information
on lawn weeds, go to http://turf.
ufl.edu, click on "Residential
Landscapes" and then click on
"Weed Management."

physical space available for
weeds to become established.
Proper mowing, fertilizing and
watering will promote a healthy,
dense grass.
Pre-emergence herbicides
are applied before weed seed
germination. If these chemicals
are applied after weed emergence,
they will have little or no effect.
There is a narrow window of time
when pre-emergence herbicides
can be applied for maximum
effect. If you wait too long to
apply them, they will either
damage your lawn or fail to work
on the weeds.
Timing of a pre-emergence
herbicide application for summer
annual weeds such as crabgrass
should be between February
15 and March 5 or when day
temperatures reach 65' to 70F
for four to five consecutive days.
This generally coincides with
the blooming of azaleas and
dogwoods.
Pre-emergence herbicides
work by creating a chemical
barrier in the soil/thatch layer.
Therefore, uniform coverage is
necessary for optimum control.
Large gaps in the herbicide-
treated zone can result in weeds
popping up.

DEP enhances

Milton trails

with flowers
MILTON The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection's (DEP) Office of
Greenways and Trails (OGT)
joined community partners to
plant native wildflowers on
the Blackwater Heritage State
Trail in an effort to promote
native vegetation. With a
grant from Florida Wildflower
Foundation, Inc. and assistance
from community volunteers,
more than 500 plants purchased
from a local nursery have been
installed in the Trail's rest areas
and parking lots during the month
of February.
"These native wildflowers
showcase nature's beauty to
the trail users," said DEP's
Office of Greenways & Trails
Director Jena B. Brooks. "This
project promotes environmental
stewardship and emphasizes the
importance of natural vegetation
in Florida's habitats."
Kiosks at the Trail's rest
areas and parking lots currently
promote awareness of native
vegetation and their benefits.
Additional interpretive plaques
along the trail will be installed
to assist trail users in the
identification and characteristics
of native wildflowers in their
natural settings. The chosen
perennials are native flowers
that showcase those found within
the four distinctive communities
along the Blackwater Heritage
trail, a former railroad corridor.
The Blackwater Heritage
State Trail hosts more than
7,000 visitors per month. The
trail is open 365 days a year
from sun-up to sun-down and
accommodates users such as
cyclists, walkers, runners, in-line
skaters and skateboarders of all
ages. The Blackwater Heritage
State Trail includes eight miles
of the more than 4,000 miles
of trails throughout the state.
Through Florida Forever, the
state's premier land acquisition
program, $4.5 million is allocated
annually to purchase and preserve
land for Florida's greenways and
trails.
The 10-year, $3 billion Florida
Forever program established
by the Florida Legislature in
1999 conserves environmentally
sensitive land, restores waterways
and preserves important cultural
and historical resources. With
more than two million acres of
land conserved through Florida
Forever and its predecessor,
Preservation 2000, the state
is increasing public access to
recreation lands, connecting
communities with green space
and expanding natural corridors
to safeguard wildlife.

McIntosh doubled in his 4 at bats and

WEWAHITCHKA, FEBRUARY
23-The Wildcats had to wait 1:40
minutes to play the Gators.
"A Day of Baseball" almost
turned into "A Night of Baseball."
But Altha didn't mind. Besides
what better could you find to do on
a Saturday night than to stomp the
Gators on their home turf, 12-0, on a
Saturday night.
After the five-inning, 2:24 minute
affair, this pack of Wildcats (5-0:
0-0. 2-2A), whom had never beaten
the Gators, had finally gotten the
proverbial monkey (er, gator) off
their backs by taking down Wewa
(1-2; 0-0, 3-2A).
And they did it in high fashion
with two homeruns, stellar pitching,
and great defense. After the game
Coach Faurot reflected on the night,
"Our three pitchers (Cale Chafin,
Tad Scott, and Keith Kirkpatrick)
did a great job and we were more
disciplined than they were in every
aspect of the game."
That comment was most glaringly
evident at the plate. The Wildcats
drew 14 walks and induced the
Gators' starting pitcher to throw 99
pitches in the first three innings.
Jake Edenfield began the scoring
frenzy in the first inning. With one
out he drew a walk and later scored
on Ethan Byler's RBI walk.
Tony Golden led off the second
inning with a base hit to centerfield.
Both Josh McIntosh and Tad Scott
were issued walks with one out. On a
2-0 pitch count, Noah Byler turned on
a pitch and lasered a two-out grand-
slam over the left field fence. That
put the Wildcats on top, 5-0.
Wewa only scoring threat came
in their half of the third frame. The
first batter reached on a fielder's
choice and the next two batters were
walked. With two outs and the bases
loaded and a full count on the Gators'
lead-off batter, Wildcats hurler, Cale
Chafin, struck out Josh Mitchell
looking at strike three.
Altha continued the bases merry-
go-round with a three-run third
inning. Ethan Byler reached on the
first baseman's error but was forced
out at second on Cale Chafin's
fielder's choice. Then Chafin stole
second base. Tony Golden's double
to left centerfield scored Chafin. Josh
McIntosh was issued a two-out walk.
Jake Edenfield poked a Texas-leaguer
to right field that scored Golden and
moved McIntosh to second. Both
runners moved up a base on the
catcher's tried to pick off McIntosh
at second and his throw went into
centerfield. Tad Scott walked to first
as did Noah Byler to load the bases.
Noah picked up his fifth RBI of the
game when he scored McIntosh.
In fourth inning the Wildcats
posted 4 more runs. Ethan Byler
led off with a single through the left
side of the infield. With two outs
Gary Chew cranked a homerun to
left centerfield that plated Ethan.
McIntosh, Juan Alejos, and Scott
all walked. Noah Byler's sixth RBI
came after he walked and scored
McIntosh. Also, Keith Kirkpatrick
drew a walk that allowed Alejos
to cross home plate and give the
Wildcats their 12-0 shutout and an
unblemished 5-0 record.
Not only did Altha make history
last Saturday night but today they have
made history as well. According to
their Web site, www.maxpreps.com.,
last Monday the Wildcats ranked
among the top national leaders in


high school baseball statistics.
