Bristol 10-year-old shot in leg by playmate


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Then four little boys stumble across a big gun,
V you know somebody's going to get hurt.
Friday night, it was 10-year-old Jacob Richerson.
He and his nephew, Gage Richerson, were spending
the night with Colton Butler at his grandparents' home
in Neal Subdivision in Bristol. All are fourth-graders at
W. R. Tolar School. Colton's younger brother, Justin,
was also with them.
Jacob's big sister, Pam Anders, gave this account
of the accident:
The boys were outside at approximately 9:30 p.m.,
playing around a boat under a shed when they found a
box that held a .357 Magnum. They took it out.
Colton held the gun and pointed it at the ground as
he pulled the trigger. It clicked four times.
Jacob stepped forward for a closer look at the
weapon as his friend pulled the trigger a fifth time and
fired a bullet through Jacob's left knee.
"They ran inside and were screaming and stuff,"
said Jacob, speaking from his hospital bed Monday
as he described his friends' reaction that night. "It


didn't hurt at first because it
numbed my leg."
Colton's grandparents,
Alvin and Sue Jacobs, called
for help and an ambulance
crew arrived to see about the
injured boy. An emergency
helicopter was dispatched.
Jacob was transported to
the Bristol football field, put
Jacob Richerson on the helicopter and flown
to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital.
Getting shot was scary but the helicopter ride "was
fun," Jacob said.
"Doctors cut him open to clean out fragments. They
put part of his kneecap in place with dissolvable pins,"
said Pam. Monday, Jacob said he could move his toes
and said doctors were "making me do physical therapy
and walking."
"He's lucky he didn't lose his leg and we're lucky
he's alive," his sister said. "They told us if it had been


an inch higher, we'd be burying him." She said the
wound was very close to an artery.
"We wish it hadn't happened. It could have
happened to anybody," she said, explaining that neither
Jacob nor his parents, Thyrel and Sarah Richerson,
harbor any hard feelings about the mishap. "It could
have just have easily been Colton or Gage that got
shot," Pam pointed out.
Colton phoned Jacob at the hospital Saturday and
went to visit him Sunday. "My friend said he was
sorry," said Jacob.
Jacob was released from the hospital Monday
evening and sent home in a cast and leg brace. "He's
in a little pain," his mother said Tuesday. "He's been a
real trooper through the whole thing," she said, adding,
"He's in for a long recovery."
W.R. Tolar School Principal Kathy Nobles said
she plans to have School Resource Officer address
the fourth grade class about gun safety. She added
they would probably do a program schoolwide over
the closed-circuit t.v. system to address the issue as
well.


Clarksville man
killed in single-
vehicle crash
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
An early morning crash
claimed the life of a 53-year-
old Clarksville man Sunday in
Jackson County.
Roger Allen Holley was
traveling north on State Road
73 at 2:13 a.m. March 9 when
he lost control of his 2001
Ford F-150, according to
a report from the Florida
Highway Patrol.
As Holley entered a curve,
the truck went off the road,
onto the east shoulder and into
the ditch. The truck traveled
approximately 230 feet and
hit a culvert at Maddox Road
before becoming airborne for
63 feet.
When the truck landed,
it overturned several times.
Holley, who was not wearing
a seatbelt, was ejected out of
the driver's side door.
He was pronounced dead at
the scene by Jackson County
EMS.
The body was transported
to the medical examiner's
office in Panama City.
The trooper's report
indicated that a determination
on whether alcohol was
involved was pending.

Two arrested after high speed chase from

Blountstown, through Bristol & back again


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Two men were arrested after a high-speed chase that
ST ended when their tires were flattened by spike strips
- and the driver lost control of the car at Magnolia Square in
Blountstown early Sunday morning, according to a report
from the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department.
Deputy William Dalton gave the following account of the
attempted traffic stop that turned into a pursuit:
The deputy was monitoring traffic on State Road 20 near


Tatum's Hardware when he clocked an eastbound car traveling
60 mph in a posted 35 mph zone at 1:53 a.m.
Dalton pulled out to follow the car, turned on his emergency
lights and signaled for the driver to pull over. The PT Cruiser,
registered to Enterprise Rent-A-Car, slowed down for a
moment and then suddenly accelerated. The deputy then turned
on his siren but the driver kept going.

Woman charged with DUI


after hitting parked truck


A Tallahassee woman was
charged with DUI after she hit
a truck in the parking lot at
McDonald's in Blountstown early
Sunday morning, according to
a report from the Blountstown
Police Department.
An officer responding to the
12:30 a.m. call arrived to find
the left front fender of a four-
door Hyundai up against the left
rear comer of a Dodge Dakota
pickup.
The owner of the truck said he
was walking out of the restaurant
when he saw the Hyundai travel
south through the parking lot and
hit his parked truck. He said the
driver, Lisa T. Degannes, 44, of
Tallahassee, tried to accelerate
in an attempt to push his truck
out of the way so that she could
leave the scene. Marcus Birch
said he took the keys from the
ignition of Degannes' car after
seeing that she did not appear to

be fit to drive.
When Degannes was asked to
step out of her car, she was unable
to stand up without holding on
to the vehicle, according to the
police officer's report.
The officer noted that he
smelled the strong odor of an
alcoholic beverage coming from
the woman's breath and observed
that her speech was slurred to
the point that it was difficult to
understand what she was saying.
He later learned that she had
come from Tallahassee to visit a
co-worker in Blountstown.


When asked if she had been
drinking, Degannes said she had
consumed one vodka and tonic
and denied taking any medication.
In the report, it was noted that
Degannes could not walk or stand
without assistance.
As the officer moved to
handcuff her, she pulled away
and fell to the ground.
During a search of her car,
the officer found an open pint
bottle of vodka with about a
third of its contents remaining. A
prescription bottle containing 17
Lorazepam pills (a mild sedative)
was also discovered.
Degannes was unable to
provide a sample of her breath
to determine her level of
intoxication. Officers could not
fingerprint her at the time because
she was unable to stand up.
She was taken to the county
jail and charged with driving
under the influence.

emerged from the front seat.
When asked what they were
doing there, Beckwith replied,
"We were just talking."
During a search of Morgan's
vehicle, deputies found two
crack cocaine pipes.
Moran then admitted that
Beckwith had given her crack
cocaine, which he kept hidden
inside the lining of his hat. When
deputies examined the hat, they
found a rock of crack cocaine
where she said it would be.
She later gave a statement
that she and Beckwith had been
meeting for about six months,
with him giving her crack co-
caine in exchange for sexual fa-
vors.
Both were charged with pos-
session of crack cocaine.


Two people were arrested
after a deputy noticed a pair of
vehicles heading into a hunting
lease off Turkey Creek Road
Sunday night.
Liberty County Sheriff's
Deputy Timothy Partridge was
patrolling the area around 9 p.m.
when a dark-colored Honda
Civic overtook his vehicle as
he drove south on Turkey Creek
Road.
He followed the car a short
distance and noticed another ve-
hicle pulled off on the side of the
road in a remote, non-residential
area.
He tried to follow the Honda
but lost sight of it after it turned
around, then sped up as it headed
north and went into the woods.
Deputy Todd Wheetley pulled


onto Turkey Creek Road and the
officers began checking the en-
trances to the hunting lease for
suspicious activity.
The deputies followed fresh
tracks that went down a two-
trail road approximately one
mile south of the intersection
of County Road 12 and Turkey
Creek Road. There they found
one unoccupied vehicle. When
their headlights hit the second
vehicle, they saw a black male in
the back seat and a white female
in the driver's seat of a Chevro-
let car.
The man, identified as Louis
Beckwith, 68, of Bristol, stepped
out of the back of the car with
his pants unzipped, startled by
the deputies' arrival. The wom-

Disputed land deeded back to former owner Tuesday morning


Ethics commission to examine issue of


land turned over to Calhoun Co. sheriff


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The Florida Ethics Commission
will look further into the transfer
of a parcel of land to Calhoun
County SheriffDavid Tatum from
an 80-year-old man who said he
wanted the spot to be kept open
to the public, but didn't want
it under the ownership of the
Calhoun County Commission.
Following up on a complaint
filed against the sheriff, the ethics
commission announced last week
they had found probable cause
that the sheriff had misused his
position by accepting the land and
failing to list it on a quarterly gift
disclosure form as required by law.
"I never considered it to be
a gift," the sheriff said. "Rufus
wanted it to be made open to
the public forever and wanted
my help. I viewed myself as a
caretaker for its continual use."
"The commission also found
probable cause to believe that


he had a conflicting contractual
relationship and a prohibited
business relationship by virtue
of his leasing the property to the
county," a March 6 news release
stated.
"Initially, it was Mr. Guilford's
desire to preserve the property in
perpetuity and he sought my help
to do so. That has since changed
so I returned the property to him
so that he may exercise control of
it and do as he wishes with it," the
sheriff said.
At issue is the fact that the
land deed was made out to David
Tatum as an individual. As
sheriff, he could not legally own
the property as a constitutional
officer. Tatum said landowner
Rufus Guilford wanted it that
way.
"He said, 'Sonny boy, you
won't always be sheriff,'"
according to Tatum, who said
Guilford wanted it to go to an


individual who would to keep the
2 1/2 acre site on Lake McKenzie
in the Mossy Pond area open to
the public.
Tatum went before the
county commission in 2006 and
presented an agreement to lease
them the land for 20 years at $1
per year. He also attached a $20
bill to the agreement, paying for it
himself. The commission agreed
to the lease.
Prior to turning the land over to
the sheriff, Guilford had offered
it to the board but later rescinded
his offer. "We argued about it
for a year," Guilford said of
his negotiations with the board.
"They said they didn't want
anything to do with it because
they'd have to keep the garbage
off of it."
Guilford said he was unhappy
the county posted signs preventing
overnight camping after it was
leased. He said he was once


offered $95,000 to sell the site.
"Hell, I turned it down," he
said. He wants to keep it open
"for youngun's to go swimming
in and old people to sit in the
shade."
But recently, he's decided,
"David got it for himself." He
said the sheriff approached him
about getting the land. "David
came to me and said, 'You got a
piece of real estate I'd sure like
to have.'"
But that's not how Tatum
remembers it. He said Guilford
came to him several times to ask
him to take the land. The sheriff
said he has witnesses who can
vouch for the fact at the upcoming
ethics hearing, which has yet to
be scheduled. "I look forward
to the opportunity to present the
facts to the public," he added.
As of Tuesday morning,
Guilford has his land back. "The
sheriff went before the county
commission last week and asked


to be released from the lease so
he could transfer the land back
to Rufus," according to Clerk of
Court Ruth Attaway. She recalled
that Guilford wanted to give the
land to the county a couple of
years earlier but "then changed
his mind."
But why would Guilford want
to give away the land in the first
place?
"I just like to help poor
people," he said. "I used to be
poor myself."
He said he wanted the land
under the control of "somebody
who's got sense enough to keep
it open," and said his good friend,
Patty Wood, "wanted to run it
for me."
Guilford, who said he spent
more than 40 years in the
Merchant Marine, and is currently
estranged from his children, said
he and Wood spend time together
"taking care of poor people and
homeless animals."

Lion's Roar set

,Saturday at BHS
The Blountstown Lion's Club was started
as a businessmen's club in 1937. During
the club's first year, the Marianna Lion's
Club found out that this business group was
interested in serving its community. So they
met together and the rest is history. Soon the
Lion's Club motto, "we serve," was a reality
in Blountstown as our club grew and served
through sight conservation.
Our main fundraiser until 2002 was
chicken barbecues which raised most of
the funds to provide eye glasses and other
worthy projects.
But times change and barbecues were
not such a great thing anymore because
everybody was doing it. Our club's income
steadily went down.
We decided to try something new. Under
the leadership of Lion Buddy Smith we
put together a country variety show called
the Lion's Roar, with gospel and country
music plus comic skits and fun things which
all enjoy. Our income to help others shot
up dramatically and this yearly Roar has
become quite popular.
Tickets are only $5 per person and can be
purchased from any Lion or call 674-5822.
They can also be purchased at the door.
This year's event features the Rivertown
Girls, Joel Hathaway, Ashley Lytle, Peggy
Cox and Sue Bradley, Bree Pybus, and
others.
The date is March 15 this Saturday,
6 p.m. in the Blountstown High School
auditorium.
Join us Saturday for a great time.
Remember, you are also helping someone
see better and have a much brighter
future.
Season open for Dixie

Liberty County's two Dixie Major

a 3 p.m. game between the Blountstown
Bra es and Talquin Electric
Conyers is coached by Steve Swier
and Charles "Boo" Morris.

Richard Joyner and Jason Brock. Con\ -
ers' and TEC \will play their next games

Groundbreaking held for ROTC

tional classrooms and a computer lab which will
be used for the Ninth Grade Academy.
The school board has been working diligently

the project.
The project is scheduled for completion mid-

Won't talk? Get the waterboard


I never cease to be amazed at Mr. /-
Bush's incredibly stupid decisions. CC
The Congress sent Mr. Bush a bill that
would limit the interrogation of terrorist C 0 F
suspects to the interrogation procedures .
listed in the Army's Field Manual for Jerry Cox is
officerand write
interrogators. The Army Field Manual background i
forbids water boarding and other acts foreign policy i,
considered by sensible people to be \Walton County
acts of torture.
Mr. Bush vetoed the bill and stated it is t
in his weekly radio address that the CIA
should be able to use "specialized inter- terroriS
rogation procedures." What that means aren't boi
is to do whatever you want when inter- Geneva C
rogating a suspect. Waterboard them,
beat them to a pulp, hang them by their rules as t
thumbs. in the mi
Along with Mr. Bush, many Ameri- but if we
cans think that torturing terrorist sus-
pects is OK. A survey of retired mili- the samn
tary officers indicated that about 25% tactics a:
of them thought it was OK to torture then we
suspected terrorist. Ask Joe Citizen and
about 25% will agree. Mr. Bush says we ter than
have to do it to protect America. As a
military officer, I don't agree. Neither do some 43 retired
generals and admirals and 18 national security experts
who denounce Mr. Bush's view that it is OK to torture
people.
It is true that terrorist suspects aren't bound by the
Geneva Convention rules as those of us in the military
are, but if we employ the same torture tactics as they
do, then we are no better than they are. For sure, now
the terrorists will be equally harsh or even more so with
American that they capture. An eye for an eye isn't al-
ways the best answer.
Mr. Bush talks about "American values" but then tells

the world that Americans are going to
use torture tactics. As usual, Mr. Bush
defends his support of torture tactics
by saying that he is "protecting Amer-
ica."
The irony of Mr. Bush's convo-
luted views on spreading democracy,
American values and protecting Amer-
ica is that it sends the wrong message
to developing nations. How can Mr.
Bush sell America's democratic pro-
cess, particularly the Rule of Law, to
an emerging nation when he advocates
torture? Go figure.
Mr. Bush claims that the CIA's in-
terrogation techniques have prevented
more Al Qaeda attacks on America, but
Senator John D. Rockefeller IV of West
Virginia, the chairman of the Intelli-
gence Committee said that he was not
aware of any such events. Of course,
there is no way to tell if Mr. Bush is
telling the truth because most every-
thing that happens in his administration
is classified as a national security issue.
It is not likely that the public will ever


know what really happened in the Bush administration.
I think that the retired Lt. Gen. Harry E. Soyster, a
former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, said
it best. Soyster said that those who support harsh meth-
ods simply lack experience and do not know what they
are talking about.
According to the news media, Soyster said, "If they
think these methods work, they're woefully misinformed.
Torture is counterproductive on all fronts. It produces
bad intelligence. It ruins the subject, makes them useless
for further interrogation, and it damages our credibility
around the world."

Wild Game Feast at Lake Mystic
The Brotherhood of Lake
Mystic Baptist Church
(LMBC) recently sponsored
a Wild Game Feast in the
church fellowship hall that
showcased trophy buck

Department. Major
Langston is a retired pastor and has worked in law enforcement
for many years. He challenged those in attendance to enjoy the
natural beauty that God has blessed us with and to have a personal
relationship with the great Creator. Items on the menu included wild
pork, squirrel, rattlesnake, pheasant, frog legs, raccoon, venison,
duck, turkey and delicious deserts prepared by the ladies of the
church. Over 120 men and boys attended the event and many hunting
stories and hunting tips were shared by the most skilled hunters in
the world. Pictured above is (left) Donnie Read, LMBC Brotherhood

We are writing to express our
sincere thanks to Maria Crump,
Wayland Peddie and Tallahassee
Memorial's LifeNet crew for their
extraordinary actions Sunday,
March 3 which with Go.d's grace
saved the life of Edna Brown.
Without the knowledge ofthese
special people Mrs. Brown would
not have made it to the hospital for
treatment. Because of their quick
and skilled thinking, these crews
were able to intubate Mrs. Brown
and stabilize her for transport to
the aircraft. We were miles away
-from any hospital and this crew
miraculously accomplished all
this in the EMS vehicle.
We are grateful that we have
such wonderful men and women
working for Liberty County EMS.
I would like for every citizen to
know the good works of these
people in our county.
Though this may appear a small
story in the grand scheme of things,
the thoughtfulness, dedication,
calm demeanor and sense of caring


made all the difference. Through
God, a miracle was performed.
Thank you again for your caring
and dedication to this county.

CHILDREN OBEY
YOUR PARENTS
Text: Ephesians 6:1-3
According to the Knoxville News-
Sentinel, Police Chief Phil Keith was
in a televised council meeting when
he was paged by his mother. Startled,
he rushed to the press table and called
hler.
"Phil Keith, are you chewing
gum?" asked his mother, watching the
meeting on TV.
"Yes, ma'am," Phil answered.
"Well, it looks awful. Spit it out,"
ordered his mother.
Phil spit out his gum and returned
to his seat.
Paul says one mark of the Spirit-
filled life is a submissive spirit. We
are to submit ourselves to each other
and give the respect that is due. This is
especially true in our family relation-
ships. True religion begins at home.
Wives submit to husbands as spiritual
leaders of the family. Husbands sub-
mit to wives as the servant leader and
love their wives sacrificially as Christ
loved the church.
Children are to obey their parents.
Barnes says to obey your parents "is
the first great duty which God has en-
joined on children." Children are to
do what their parents command them
to do. It is simply the right thing to
do. Paul goes back to the fifth com-
mandment, "Honor your father and
mother."
Honor, according kto Blaike, "is
higher than .obedience. It is the regard
due to those who, by Divine appoint-
ment, are above us, and to whom our
most respectful consideration is due."
It is the first commandment that ends
with a promise, "that it may go will
with you and that you may enjoy long
life on the earth." The mark of a Spir-
it-filled child is obedience to his par-
ents. "Our Lord bade us go not merely
to teach them all things.. but to teach
them to observe these things."

Former Union soldier brings


his family to live in Bristol


Submitted by Wynelle Bateman


Howard Franklin Baker was born
in Monroe County, Ohio,
moved to Illinois, then to Kansas
Territory. He lived there before
and after the Civil War. He en-
listed in the Union Army on the /
sixteenth day of August, 1861
in Company F, 38 Regiment
of Illinois Infantry Volun-
teers. He was discharged in
September, 1864 at Chatta-
nooga, Tennessee when the
war ended. He was number
four on the Roll of Honor of
the Pioneer Brigade, Army of .
the Cumberland.
Howard and his wife Sarah
Ann Hooper Baker had two
boys, Martin Van Buren and
Nathan Carlin. While he was in
service they continued to live in
Kansas. She told of riding through
Indian Territory to a neighbor's house to
get food (what we call "white side" now) for
her children. When Howard returned they had two
more children, girls, they named Minnie Isabelle
and Jessie Rossie.


:"V


Howard
Franldin
Baker


The weather wasn't very good for crops and they
had heard about Florida being a thriving place to live. They
came to Liberty County between 1885 and 1888.
Minnie Isabelle had a contract to teach at Buckorn
in Calhoun County for the school term of 1888 for the
sum of twenty dollars per month. Howard also taught in
Calhoun County.
Martin Van Buren, who was married to Sarah Ann
Giles, came with his parents and Sarah Ann decided not
to come with him. She stayed in Sedgwick, Kansas. She
divorced Martin in 1893 and remarried Thomas Dick
McIntire in 1894. Martin and Sara Ann's son Sylvester
came to live with the Bakers in Bristol, Liberty County,
Florida.
Minnie, Martin and Sylvester married Batemans, Min-
nie married Benjamin "Ben" May 21, 1894. Martin Van


Buren married Ben's sister Susan Ann (Laura)
Bateman January 14, 1895. They had four
children, Howard Lee, George Martin,
Albert,and Sally Nancy. After Susan
Ann died in 1901 he married the
%widow of Jessie Bateman, who
was formally Pattie Jackson
Bateman. They had five chil-
dren. They were Harry T.,
S"Modie, Howard Franklin,
Clara Isabelle and Martin
Hardie "Jack."
Sylvester married another
one of Ben's sisters, Lovie
Bateman on March 28,1899.
When she died he married
Theresa Robenia Ezelle in
August 1903. They had seven
/ children, Sarah Theresa, Paul
Livingston,Annie Jo, James Al-
S len, Myrtle Ellen, George Ezelle
and Mary Ernestine.
Nathan Carlin "Carl" married
Eva L. Carson June 27, 1902. They
had five children named Daniel, Saide
Virginia, Lewis H., Mamie M., and Helen L.
Jessie married Little Owen Glenn,'December
11, 1896 and they had Sarah Queen, Matthew
E., Tommy, Jimmy J., Frances, Bennie 0. and


Loula.
It was remarked that "Uncle Mart" owned the longest
car in Liberty County! It was a Dodge and it was said
that it reached from the bee yard to the barn! He was a
carpenter by trade. His brother Carl was a gunsmith and
a watchmaker. Minnie stayed at home and raised twelve
children that included one of Martin Van Buren's sons,
Howard Lee Baker.
Howard Baker died in 1903 and is buried in Lake
Mystic Cemetery. His widow Sarah lived with her
daughter Minnie until her death in 1920. She drew a
widow's pension from Howard's Union service in the
Civil War.
All this was discovered when an old trunk of hers
was opened by one of her grandsons. It had all the old
documents carefully preserved in it.


This is one in a series of articles to be included in a history and heritage book on Liberty County. Journal readers
are invited to submit their own family photos, histories and remembrances for the book by contacting Family

Criticism of column based on several factual errors


To the editor:
I take great offense with
the letter written by Glenn F.
Lord Sr. in which he called
Americans "... politically
correct cowards ..." He took
issue with a column written
by Jerry Cox by calling it "....
offensive and narrow minded."
Yet Mr. Lord Sr., in his article,
managed to do both, while
also being rude, crass, callous,
bigoted and factually wrong.
Time does not permit me to
respond to everything Mr. Lord
Sr. wrote, but I would at least
like to correct the parts of his
article which were factually
wrong.
Mr. Lord Sr. implied that


Hillary Clinton
is in favor of a
socialist form of
government, but
there is nothing
to indicate that
such a claim
is true. Hillary


Clinton's plan to
create universal health care for
all Americans is often referred
to as "socialized medicine."
However, under a true socialist
system, the doctors and nurses
who provide care would all be
employed by the government.
Hillary Clinton has never
suggested any such thing.
Mr. Lord Sr. stated that,
"speaking English was actually


a requirement to become an
American citizen at one time..."
which clearly implied that it
no longer was a requirement.
. However, speaking English is
still a requirement to become
a U.S. citizen. On the web site
for The U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services it clearly
states that the requirements
for citizenship include "an


Speak up when your rights are ignored


To the editor:
Recently the Calhoun
County Sheriff has come under
investigation for wrongdoing.
As most people know, I have
expressed my opinions through
letters to the editor concerning


things that have affected us from
this public funded department.
Again, I ask the public to step
forward and let everyone know if
your rights have been violated.
You have a right to be free
from unlawful searches. That is

a recent camping trip with Troop 201 of Quincy. The Arrow of

guaranteed by the constitution
of the United States.
You are protected from
self-incrimination by the fifth
amendment of that document.
How many have been asked
incriminating questions and
not been told their rights under
the Miranda rights act? That's
right, when an officer asks how
much have you had to drink or
tells you to take a field sobriety
test that is self-incrimination.
Refusing to allow you to take a
blood alcohol test is a violation
of state law. It is your right and
the statute says that an officer
shall not refuse you.
What I'm getting to is the
same thing that I have said
before, our law enforcement
officers are committing crimes
and the state's attorney and the
courts are allowing it. When
you are being violated and your
rights are ignored, STAND UP,
SPEAK UP.

ability to read,
write and speak
English." [1]
I'm not
a Muslim,
irnal Christian,
or Jew. I've
never chosen a
religion or had
one forced upon me, but as
a student of history I know
that no good will ever come
from religious persecution.
The examples are many -
the Crusades, the Inquisition,
the Salem Witch Trials, the
Holocaust, etc. Mr. Lord Sr.'s
characterization of the Muslim
religion was blatantly false and
dangerously reckless.
Mr. Lord Sr. stated that, "The
fact is Islam in America has
never stood up and condemned
the killing of thousands of
Americans..." In fact, The
American Muslim Political
Coordination Council stated,
"American Muslims utterly
condemn what are apparently
vicious and cowardly acts of
terrorism against innocent
civilians." [2] The Grand
Mufti of Saudi Arabia stated
that, "... hijacking planes,
terrorizing innocent people and


shedding blood, constitute a
form of injustice that cannot be
tolerated by Islam, which views
them as gross crimes and sinful
acts." [3] Even President Bush
said, "The face of terrorism
is not the true faith of Islam.
That's not what Islam is all
about. Islam is peace. These
terrorists don't represent peace,
they represent evil and war."
[4] I strongly urge Mr. Lord Sr.
to do his homework next time
before he states something as
"the fact..."
Finally, I find it repulsive
that Mr. Lord Sr. would claim
that the tragic death of an
American soldier and F15
pilot was a suicide in which the
soldier was attempting to "...
collect his virgins in heaven."
Imagine how the family of that
young boy would feel upon
reading those hateful words.
In these times of loss,
hardship, and tragedy we need
to come together as human
beings and not divide ourselves
along lines of religion, national
origin, right or left, or anything
else. I hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all men are
created equal.

Inmates redo
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
An inmate crew from Liberty
Correctional Institution is
making some big changes to
the top floor of the courthouse
in Bristol. After gutting the
courtroom and adding textured
walls, plans call for the addition
of decorative crown moulding
and new furnishings for the
judge, jury and attorneys'
sections at front of the room,
along with new carpet.
One thing they'll be keeping
is the old theatre-style seats,
which were installed in 1942,
according to Clerk of Court
Robert Hill. "We didn't
want to get rid of them," he
said, explaining they will
be refurbished before being
returned to the courtroom.
"The old windows have been
rebuilt and the panes have been
replaced," he said. "They'll
look new but we're using the
original material."
The courtroom will have
an up-to-date sound system.
"We'll be wired for digital
recording as well as video
applications later on," Hill Prison ir
said.
Work began in mid-. mid-Api
November and Hill expects The
the work will be completed by with a

The car continued racing along State Road 20 and was
traveling 110 mph when it blew through the intersection of
State Roads 20 and 71.
Deputy Bliss Moreau joined the chase as the rental car raced
past the sheriff's office. The three vehicles crossed the bridge
into Bristol at speeds topping 110 mph.
As the chase blasted through Bristol and was halfway to
Hosford, Moreau pulled out and passed the rental car in an
effort to get far enough ahead to put out spike strips to deflate
the suspects' tires.
After Moreau pulled away, the driver of the speeding car
hit the brakes, forcing Dalton, who was behind him, to take
evasive action to keep from slamming into the back of the
car.
The car slid sideways into the south ditch along State Road
20 for about 100 feet. The driver then turned the car around,
hit the gas and drove toward the driver's side door of Dalton's
patrol vehicle.
Dalton threw his patrol car into reverse and took evasive
action, avoiding impact with less than six inches between the
vehicles.
The suspect then returned to State Road 20, this time
traveling west.
Liberty County Deputy Wade Kelly joined the pursuit as
they entered the Bristol City Limits. Dalton radioed ahead
for Blountstown Police Officer Jared Nichols to deploy spike
strips at the foot of the westbound bridge as they raced back
to Blountstown.
Dalton dropped back as the suspects' car continued across
the old bridge at a high rate of speed in an effort to give Nichols
time to pull the spike strip off the road after the Cruiser passed
but before he reached the same spot.
All four tires on the PT Cruiser immediately began to go
flat after crossing the spikes. The car continued on at speeds
of around 60 mph as the tires came apart, sending out sparks
and debris as it continued traveling into Blountstown.
The car came to a stop in the eastbound lane beside
Magnolia Square, across from The Diamond Corner.
The driver got out and.ran south with Dalton in pursuit.
Moreau went to the suspects' car and removed the passenger,
who refused to exit the vehicle voluntarily. After he locked the
doors to the car, officers broke a window to remove him.
Dalton injured his foot as he jumped out of his patrol car to
chase the fleeing suspect and caught up with him behind the
car lot next to the park. After the suspect ignored commands
to lay on the ground, Dalton fired his taser, hitting the suspect
in the side and back.
The suspect continued to resist by violently swinging his
arms and attempting to get up, according to Dalton's report.
It took two or three minutes to get the suspect secured in
handcuffs.
The rim of the front tires were nearly gone and the back
tires were flat. Officers searched the vehicle but found nothing
illegal.
Following the arrests, Dalton went to the emergency room to
be treated for a foot injury, believed to be a hairline fracture.
Both of the suspects were taken to the county jail.
The driver, identified as Freddie Lamont Solomon, 38, of
Polk County, was charged with aggravated fleeing and eluding
a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence,
aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, reckless
driving, driving while license suspended or revoked with
knowledge and violation of state probation. He is wanted on
warrants out of Polk County.
His passenger, Javon Ramon Walker, 33, was charged with
resisting arrest without violence .

2008 BIG BEND WEIGHTLIFTING MEET
Altha finished runner up at the 2008 Big Bend Weightlifting Meet in
Tallahassee last Wednesday. Thirteen teams competed in the event with
Wakulla winning the team title with 38 points. The Wildcats came in second
with 36 points.
Other teams competing at the me6t were: Blountstown, Chiles, East
Gadsen, Florida High, Godby, Leon, Liberty County, Lincoln, Madison
County, Rickards, Taylor County, Wewa and Wakulla.
Altha had three individual champions at the meet. In the 139 pound
weight class, Gary Chew finished with a 520 pound total. Gary went for
the state record on his third clean and jerk with an attempt of 290 pounds.
Chew was able to clean the weight, but just missed the jerk. Tony Golden
also won in the 154 pound weight class. Tony had a 275 pound bench press
and a 245 pound clean and jerk. Junior Terry Stinson won the 169 pound
weight class with a 275 pound bench press and a 255 pound clean and jerk.
Ethan Ellis, Remington Walker, Josh Mcintosh, Noah Byler and John Tedesco
also scored points in the meet.
The boys will now get a week off from competition before suiting back
up for the first qualifying meet to be held on Thursday, March 20. This week
off will help the boys fine tune some technique issues and help a couple of
them work on getting their bodyweight where it needs to be.

MARCH 12, 2008 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 19


Staff begins
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital has
been doing great recently in several
key areas. Most of last year we
averaged only five patients each
day in the hospital and had only 37
admissions each month.
We now average 10 patients per
day and 74 admissions per month.
My math is not all that great, but I
think that's a doubling of our census
and admissions! Ten patients per
day may not sound like many, but
to us it's significant and means
increased revenue. We see these
numbers only increasing in the
future.
We're very proud of these
numbers since it means more
and more of you are willing to
"use" our services. By the way,
our lab, radiology and respiratory
therapy all did a record number of
procedures in January.
Unfortunately, all of this positive
news is overshadowed by some
bad news. Despite our best efforts,
and our staff is working extremely
hard, we are facing a temporary
"cash flow" issue. I know most
businesses can appreciate this
situation.
This is.due mainly to some
significant increases in cost areas
such as our malpractice insurance
and health insurance for our staff.
Yes, we are a business and have
a lot of the same costs as any
business. For example, our utilities
are up the same as youtrs. We've had


r"--------


40 day prayer
other big cost increases as well.
More of a cause, however, is
the slow payment from Medicare,
Medicaid and commercial insurance
companies. We are doing lots of
work but are slow in getting paid
for it. Also, many patients we
serve, unfortunately, don't pay
anything. However, we continue
to see all that come for care.
We may not do the best job of
"billing and collecting" for what
we do, but we are very dependent
on these "third party payers" to stay
viable. Lately, very poor payments
coupled with the increased expenses
have created a financial challenge.
Medicare is an especially critical
part of our total operations as a
hospital. Over 50% of our patients
are Medicare beneficiaries and
if we don't get paid timely by
Medicare, it's a real problem for
us. Well, lately it has been a REAL
big problem.
Medicare barely pays enough to
cover the cost of providing the care.
Medicaid does not.
All of this has resulted, again, in
a very tight financial situation for us.
We're making some changes and
tough decisions to address this. In
the process, it makes for a stressful
and difficult environment.
To help address this, a staff
member came to me and asked if
we could conduct a prayer vigil
for 40 days and ask the Good
Lord to help our hospital during

vigil to help with hospital's hard times


CALHOUN-LIBERTY

these difficult times. Of course,
forty days is a significant issue for
several reasons in the Bible.
Orville Eby, our Radiology
Manager, is the staff member that
suggested we do this. We started a
few days ago and have had a great
attendance of our staff and others.
We meet in the hospital dining
hall at 8 a.m. Anyone is invited and
a lot of staff is participating. Some
of our Board members have also
attended as well as family members


of our staff.
We invite and welcome anyone
that would like to join us, to do
so. It will occur daily, until we
reach 40 days, which will run into
early April. It happens each day of
the week, including Saturday and
Sunday.
It lasts no more than 10 minutes.
I feel the impact will last for a very
long time. It is a powerful and
inspirational 10 minutes. It's been
very moving to me personally as the
Administrator of Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital.
It's non-denominational and
anyone that wishes can attend and
pray openly and certainly privately..
Then Orville closes with a final
prayer.
Our staff is very hard working
and dedicated. Obviously, they


want our hospital to be successful
in the face of some very tough
challenges. We need the Lord's
help in these tough times. He's
helped the hospital survive much
tougher times the past two years
and we know He will guide us
through this.
I'm already seeing some very
positive results. Just the past week,
we've had great news in areas that
will help get us through this tough
period. I'm confident our future is
bright. We will continue to move
forward in the many positive ways
of recent months.
Forty days of prayer come
join us.
Give me a call if you have
any questions on the above or
on anything about the hospital at
674-5411, ext 206.


Le'Tonya Reed crowned Ms. Florida Plus America


Le'Tonya Reed ofBlountstown,
Florida has been crowned Ms.
Florida Plus America. Le'Tonya
will compete with women from
all over the United States for the
title of 2008 Plus America Elite
this summer in Dallas, TX. "I
entered this pageant to help promote
positive self-esteem to full-figured
women and to prove that we big
beautiful women are changing the
face of the world," said Le'Tonya.
The Miss Plus America Pageant
system is unlike any other pageant
concept. It celebrates the inner
beauty of each contestant, as well
as recognizing their commitment
to their communities. Melissa
Stamper, Executive Director for
Coronet Productions says, "Ms.
Reed is an ideal candidate for the
Miss Plus America Pageant. We
are proud to have her as a state
titleholder."
Le'Tonya is the daughter of
Marjorie Peterson, Jeremiah
Peterson and John Thomas Reed.
She is the granddaughter of J. T.
Reed, Ella Mae Peterson, the late
Equilla Scott, the late James Jones,
the late Mary Reed and the late
Nemiah Peterson.
Le'Tonya currently holds two
local titles and two state titles.


She is the reigning Ms.
Blountstown 2007, Ms. Heart
of the Panhandle 2007, Ms.
Florida Woodlands 2007 and
Ms. Florida Plus America
2008.
As Ms. Florida Plus
America, Le'Tonya will
have the opportunity to
further promote her platform,
"American Cancer Society/
Relay For Life."
"It was easy for me
to choose the AMC as
my platform because my
brother-in-law was diagnosed
with cancer. He received
experimental stem-cell
research and now his cancer
is in remission. In December
of 2007, my mother was
diagnosed with cancer.
Thank God her surgery was
successful and she is doing
well. The race to find a cure is very
personal to me," says Le'Tonya. "I
am also a member of 'Queens with
a Cause,' an organization of local
queens who raise money for Relay
for Life." Le'Tonya would like to
prove that no matter the shape or
size, plus-sized women can make a
difference in society.
Le'Tonya is currently working
on a bachelor's degree in
Education. She is employed as a
para-professional at Blountstown
Elementary School where they are
"Racing for Excellence" in 2008.
A newcomer to the MPA pageant,


Le'Tonya plans to use her state title
to help gain awareness for cancer
research and to raise funds to
help find a cure. These funds will
also help cancer patient who are
currently battling cancer.
"I plan to speak to people
and organizations to help raise
awareness and to encourage people
to get tested. Early detection
is important in the fight against
cancer.
"I also plan to visit children in
cancer wards to give them a smile
and to let them know someone
cares," says Le'Tonya.

of the infield.
Malone scored their 2 runs in the
fifth inning.
SNEADS, MARCH 7-Good
things come to those who wait.
The Wildcats (8-2; 1-0, 2-2A) had
to wait 34 minutes to start their varsity
game due to the fact that earlier that
afternoon Sneads had to dry out their
infield with an airboat. Not only did
they have to wait for the start of the
game, they were also patient at the
plate and their patience paid off in a
11-1 pasting of the Pirates (2-5; 1-2,
2-2A) in 6 innings.
Altha didn't waste any time in
getting on the board. Lead off batter
Josh McIntosh reached base after
being hit by a pitch. He advanced
to second base on a passed ball. Tad
Scott was issued a walk. McIntosh
and Scott and moved to third and
second, respectively, on the catcher's
indifference. McIntosh scored after
being hit by the catcher's attempted
pick-offthrow. Scott moved to third
on a wild pitch then he stole home
to give Altha a 2-0 lead.
The Wildcats would plate 4 more
runs in the third inning. McIntosh
led off with single through the right
side of the infield. Scott reached on
an error by the shortstop. Noah Byler
drew a walk to load up the bases.
With one out Jake Edenfield was
issued a walk that scored McIntosh.
Next, Cale Chafin also walked
and that brought Scott across the
plate. Keith Kirkpatrick followed
with a.single to left centerfield that
plated Noah. Edenfield scored
the Wildcats final run on a passed
ball.
Altha built an 8-0 lead in the
fourth inning. Josh McIntosh
led off by ripping a grass-burner
through the left side of the infield.
He moved to second ,base on the
catcher's indifference and he
advanced to third on a wild pitch.
Tad Scott reached on an error by
the second baseman that scored
McIntosh. Noah Byler slammed a
single off the left centerfield fence
that moved Scott to second.
Sneads scored their only run on
an error in the fourth inning.
Altha ended the game in the
sixth inning by putting three more
runs on the board. Noah Byler was
issued a lead off walk. Edenfield
returned a single back through the
middle of the infield. On a 2-2 pitch
count, Keith Kirkpatrick hammered
a 3-run homer (his third jack of the
year) over the left centerfield fence
to secure Altha's 11-1 win.
Pitcher Tad Scott was lights out
in picking up his fifth win of the
season. He struck out 10 Pirates,
allowed 2 hits, and issued only 1
walk.
Keith Kirkpatrick led the
Wildcats at the plate by going 2
for 3, scored a run and he collected
4 RBIs. Josh McIntosh was 2 for
3 and he crossed the dish 3 times.
Jake Edenfield was 1 for 3, scored
twice, and was credited with a RBI.
Tony Golden singled in his 4 plate
appearances.
With this win the Wildcats etched *

another mark in the record books.
This is the sixth time this season
they have 10-runned an opponent
in 5 innings or more.
Altha's junior varsity was tied
with Sneads, 1-1, through 3 innings.
Then the wheels fell off in the fourth
inning and the Pirates won, 14-1.
Chuck Simmons scored the


only run for the Wildcats (3-4)
in the second inning. He led off
with a walk and moved to second
on Jeremy O'Bryan's groundout.
An error by the pitcher advanced
Simmons to third base and he
crossed home plate on an errant
pick-off throw by the catcher.
Jacob Warner gave the Wildcats

3 very good innings on the mound.
He induced 6 groundouts, struck out
