Bristol grandmother escapes

midday carjacking attempt

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Bristol woman escaped an apparent
carjacking attempt by leaning down in
her seat and hitting the gas after she was
run off the road Friday.
The 62-year-old grandmother, who
asked that her name not be used, was
returning home around 2 p.m. after a
morning of shopping in Tallahassee.
She noticed a silver Kia in traffic
behind her several times, beginning at
Gaines Street in Tallahassee. She said
it stood out because of the bold Kia tag

attached to the front bumper.
Still in Tallahassee, she stopped at a
Dollar General Store, where she made
a $2 purchase. Fifteen minutes later,
she returned to her 2006 Cadillac and
drove back onto State Road 20. When
she checked her rear view mirror, she
was surprised to see the Kia was behind
her again. "They weren't real close, but
they were close enough that I could see
that tag," she said.
As she crossed the Ochlocknee River
Bridge, she noticed the Kia was still in

traffic behind her. "They stayed behind
two or three car-lengths. They never got
close," she said.
When she turned off State Road 20
onto Hoecake Road in Bristol, the Kia
turned and followed her.
First, she thought it was someone
who lived nearby.
Then, the car pulled up beside her.
She thought the vehicle, which had
dark-tinted windows making it

the holding cell, Parker asked if
he could smoke. When told that
he could not, he stated, "Then I'm
gonna buck."
Around 9 p.m., Parker became
disruptive again, banging on the
cell door and yelling profanities.
He refused repeated orders to
settle down, back away from the
cell door and sit. A deputy who
had been called back to the jail a

Law seizes package with 20 pounds of marijuana

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Twenty pounds of marijuana, divided into five
separate packages, were discovered by authorities
tracking an overnight package from Brownsville,
Texas, through Tallahassee and to its final destination
of Blountstown.
The package had a return address of CMS
Computer Maintenance and was supposed to contain
a 20-pound computer.
Postal authorities were suspicious when they
noticed a weight discrepancy. What was supposed
to be a 20-pound package instead weighed 47
pounds. Postal inspectors did not open the package
in Tallahassee after a drug dog failed to alert them
to any drug-related content, but they did contact the
Calhoun County Sheriff's Department to share their
Just before 10 a.m. last Thursday, a Hispanic
male came to the Blountstown Post Office to claim
the package, which was addressed to a Robert

Five packages of marijuana were found stashed inside this
computer, which was mailed to a Blountstown address last week.

road superintendent
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A 71-year-old Bristol man was arrested for aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon after he alleged tried to run down a Liberty
County Commissioner and the county road superintendent last
week, according to a report from the Liberty County Sheriff's
Earlier that morning, a road in the Rock Bluff area had been
graded by the county against the wishes of Edward Neal Dekle,
according to one county employee.
Around 11:25 a.m. on March 11, Dekle was driving along County
Road 270 when he saw Liberty County Commissioner Albert
Butcher and Road Superintendent Jim Shuler standing in a ditch.
The two were discussing county road issues and looked up to see
Dekle heading toward them.
The men thought Dekle was going to stop but instead, he ran
off the road and into the ditch toward them. Shuler was forced to
jump to the far side of the ditch and Butcher had to step back to
avoid being hit.
After Dekle passed the two men, he stopped, put the car in reverse
and backed up to where Shuler and Butcher were standing.
"You could have hit someone!," Shuler said.
"I was trying to hit both you sons of b------" Dekle replied.
The arrest report stated that Dekle then threatened the men,
saying, "If you come out on Boykin Road again, I got a 12 gauge
shotgun and you can get you some of that!" He then drove off.
Dekle was taken into custody around 3 p.m. and admitted to
Liberty County Sheriff's Officer Major Donnie Conyers that he
had driven toward the two men. -
He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly

After he signed for it, the man was approached
by a postal inspector who led him to a room to talk
with him.
The man, identified as Miguel Angel Alejos, said
he was picking it up for someone else but could not
give authorities a name.
When the package was opened, they found the
shell of a computer with its components removed to
make room for five bags of marijuana, each heavily
wrapped in plastic. The total weight of the marijuana
was 20 pounds.
The case was turned over to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Department because it did not meet

Bristol man sought after

fleeing traffic stop Friday
A traffic stop in Bristol led to a chase into Rock Bluff for a Bristol
man Friday night, but authorities are still looking for him after he
ditched the vehicle and took off on foot.
After noticing a Dodge Magnum traveling north at a high rate of
speed and driving into oncoming traffic on Hwy. 12 North, Liberty
County Sheriff's Deputy Andy Pace signaled for the driver to pull
The driver, identified as Dennis Sneads of Bristol, handed over
his license but after the deputy returned and asked him to step out,
Sneads fled.
"I asked him to step out and he put it in gear and rapidly sped off,"
Pace said. The deputy had to jump back to avoid being hit.
Pace followed the car and both turned onto Torreya Park Road. The
Dodge raced out of sight as Sneads headed toward Rock Bluff.
Deputy Wade Kelly found the vehicle abandoned on Aspalaga Road
with the windows down. Dogs teams were called out from Liberty
Corrections to track Sneads. The trail led to another road and it is
believed he got a ride away from the area.
Trackers found a trail of $20 bills in the woods near the car, which
totaled up to $160. Nearly $1,700 in cash mostly $20 bills were
found in the console of the car, along with an open container of
Charges pending against Sneads include aggravated assault on a
law enforcement office with a motor vehicle, aggravated fleeing and
eluding a law enforcement officer, wanton and willful reckless driving
and an open container violation.

Lunchtime conversation views differ

I was at a writer's luncheon
recently and seated at the table was
a manager of a small manufacturing
company, a retired military officer,
an elderly woman and a man in his
fifties. The elderly woman was a
spitting image of the grumpy mother
in the Crankshaft comic strip.
I asked the manager what
percentage of his company work was

for government contracts. His response was as little
as possible because the government is too difficult to
work with, too many rules and too many lawyers.
That brought about a riff from the manager and
retired military officer about how trial lawyers
are the bane of capitalism. But, surprisingly, the
manager began defending Medicare because he has
to negotiate his company's medical plan with the
insurance industry.
The manager made the point that administrative
costs for Medicare is about 3% while much higher for

the insurance industry. He continued
that the Bush administration and the
Congress in the prescription drug
legislation prevented Medicare from
negotiating with the drug industry to
obtain best prices for bulk sales. This
is a blatant effort to protect the drug
industry's profits.
Of course, comments about
national healthcare and socialized

medicine followed. I commented that we have
national healthcare now. It's Medicare which could
be expanded to cover more people. A buffet style
program that could satisfy the requirements of the
young and healthy and the old and not so healthy. Of
course, we have to individually pay for the service,
as we do when we are in a company plan.
The comments shifted to the education system.
One comment was to cut all school programs like
music, sports and arts. Just teach the basics.
My comment was that instead of blaming the
government for lack of success in schools, maybe we
should look to the parents and their children. Teachers
can't cram information into their heads. There has to
be some willingness to learn and some willingness
on the part of the parents to instill enough discipline
in their children to*make them understand the value
of an education. Children should understand the
relationship of an education, a job, buying a car and
paying the rent.
I commented that in many states, Florida and
California for example, are being forced to reduce
budgets and many of the reductions will affect
schools. So, if we want an education system that will
prepare people for the marketplace then we have to
pay the cost. There is no free lunch.
Across the table, the grumpy old lady said that she
didn't want to see any Democrats elected. I asked
why. Her response was that she didn't want to pay
taxes. I responded that paying taxes is the price we
all pay to live in a democratic society.
Her response was that she didn't want to pay
for someone else's right to live in a democratic
This lunchtime conversation pretty well summed
up what is wrong with America.

Text: Ephesians 6:4
Doctor Potter once told the story
of a runaway boy who appeared be-
fore a judge. He had been caught
and was being tried for forgery. The
judge was familiar with the boy since
childhood as he knew his father. The
boy's father had been well known in
the legal profession for his extensive
work on the Law of Trusts. "Do you
remember your father whom you have
disgraced?" asked the judge sternly.
The boy answered, "I remember
him perfectly. When I went to him for
advice or companionship, he would
look up from his book on the Law of
Trusts, and say, 'run away boy, I'm
busy.' My father finished his book,
and here I am."
Children are commanded by scrip-
ture to obey their parents. However,
as the spiritual leader of the house-
hold, the father is required to make
reasonable commands. To exasperate
is to "provoke to wrath." Barnes puts
is this way, "So govern them, and so
punish them- if it is necessary- that
they shall no lose their confidence in
you, but shall love you."
Father's must make decisions in
the best interests of their children.
Those decisions should help guide the
child to discover God's will for his
life. Those decisions should encour-
age the child to walk in obedience to
It is a father's duty to train his chil-
dren to love God and seek His will. It
is the father's duty to teach them the
foundational, guiding principles in
scripture. It is the father who should
teach the child how to be spirit filled
and walk in the light of the Lord. One
father once said, "All I'm trying to
do is behave so that when people tell
my son that he reminds them of me,
he'll stick out his chest instead of his

The Browns and the Aliens: Great

Depression drew many to Florida

Submitted by Joe Brown
D during the early 1930s, during the Great Depression,
many families migrated to Florida to seek their
fortunes in a new life. They used every means of
transportation to get here. This is a story about one of
those families who only got as far as Liberty County.
In 1930, things were tough everywhere, including
Florida and Liberty County, but most of the people who
came were basing their trips on the earlier reputation of
Florida as advertised in the newspapers and journals to
the north, including the state of Georgia.
William Marion Allen lived in Columbus, Georgia at
the time where he made his living growing and selling
fresh vegetables. The big problem at that time was that
no one had any money to pay for vegetables so he sold
everything he had and invested in a small river barge and
followed his dream of floating down the Chattahoochee
and Apalachicola Rivers to the newly promised land of
He built a small house on the barge to take care of his
wife, Minnie and their seven children.
There was nothing to power the barge except the flow
of the river. He did rig a rudder.on the rear of the barge
for guidance.
The seven children included four girls, Myrtle, Flora,
Ethel and Mary; and three boys, Jim, Newt and Sam.
They lived off animals from the land and fish from the
river and the few provisions they had loaded on board.
They traveled a slow pace, tying up to shore every
night and sometimes staying at the same place for more
than a day at a time when they found plentiful food and/
or someone got lost in the woods and didn't make it back
to the barge by nightfall.
Tired and weary after several weeks of travel, they
came to a big bend in the river with tall bluffs on each
side, a place called Alum Bluff, just up river from the
boat landing at Bristol.
Two young men were working their catfish baskets and
"trot lines" from their small boat. The first thing they saw
when they approached the barge was the beautiful young
women on board. They tied up to the barge momentarily
and asked "Where y'all headed?"
One of the young ladies said, "We're going to Florida

to seek our fortune and a new life." To which the young
men replied, "This is Florida!" The girls answered back,
"We're looking for jobs and a place to live." To which
the boys responded, "We live in that big house over
there at the landing and there is a small house next to it.
Papa would probably let you stay in the little house until
you found something else. And, there are plenty of jobs
around here. Follow us over there and we will help you
tie up and talk to Papa."
After some difficulty with the current around the big
bend, the mission was completed and they walked up to
the house, where they met William D. "Doanie" Brown
and his wife, Mary, along with their daughter, Trudy, and
their five sons, Joe, Dave, Earl, Clytel and Oliver. Dave
and Clytel were the two young men in the fishing boat
whom they had met earlier.
W within weeks, Dave had married Myrtle, Joe
had married Flora and no one had found a job.
So Mr. Allen wired his former associates in Columbus.
He told them of his misfortune of losing two daughters
to marriage and about the lack of job opportunities in
the area. He asked them to send a truck to Bristol large
enough to transport him and his family back to Columbus
and promised that he would work with them long enough
to pay off the debt and to get them back into the truck-
farming business.
About a week later, the truck came and they loaded
up "lock, stock and barrel" and returned to Columbus,
leaving behind a legacy of two-daughters who had broken
into the Brown clan and would later produce two children
each of their own.
Since the two Brown brothers, Dave and Joe, married
two sisters, Myrtle and Flora, their offspring became
double first cousins. In 1932, Flora gave birth to a son
and one month later Myrtle gave birth to a daughter. Two
years later, they each had a daughter.
Joe and Flora's son was named William Joseph (Joe)
Brown. Dave and Myrtle named their first daughter Nell,
who became Nell Brown Sumner Ross. Both Nell and Joe
still live in Liberty County.
The other two daughters, Derry Brown Johnson and
Corrine Brown Owens, are both deceased. Derry died in
1994 and Corrine died in 2007.

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 Chairperson
Edwinna Dalton at 850-643-5341, Topical Chairperson Fran Rigsby at e-mail: or Heritage Publishing

Business owners stepping up

Several downtown
Blountstown business and
property owners have truly
stepped up to the plate in the
effort to revitalize the Main
Street historic district. To show
appreciation for their efforts, the
Blountstown Main Street design
committee is developing an
awning grant program.
As depicted in the downtown
artist renderings Main Street
unveiled last year, awnings in
the downtown color scheme -
greatly enhance the appearance
of downtown. And when your
town looks nice, tourists stop,
spend money and help boost
your sales! As we all know,
Blountstown is along a heavily
traveled route to Panama City
Beach, Mexico Beach and
other popular destinations. In
addition, with the opening of

*I,,~t ,--

the Blountstown Greenway
and increased marketing of the
Panhandle Pioneer Settlement,
Blountstown is becoming a
destination itself. Why not attract
tourists to spend some time
downtown? Something as simple
as an awning can certainly help
attract more customers to your
shop or cafe.
For more information on
the awning graht program, call
Kelli Peacock at (850) 899-0500
or email Barbara Wilson at

Main St. meeting
Blountstown Main Street will
meet Monday, March 24 at noon
at Connie's Kitchen downtown.
Among the items to be
discussed is the next Movie on
the Square set for Thursday, April
10, featuring 'Grease'.

impossible to see inside, was
going to pass her.
As it continued on beside her,
she thought it was someone who
she knew who was trying to stop
and talk to her.
But when it started edging her
off the road, she knew something
was wrong.
"They were gradually running
me off the road. I had two
wheels on the grass," she said.
She stopped, unsure what was
happening. Then a passenger
stepped out of the Kia.
"I almost rolled my window
down. I thought it was somebody
that knew me," she said.
She saw a glint of silver from
an object in his hand that she
believed was a gun. Then, heard
a loud noise.
"I thought, 'Oh, God, he shot
me,"' she said.
"I laid down on the armrest
and floorboarded my car," she
She sped toward her house
that was a short distance down
Hoecake Road. When she was
able to look in the rearview mirror
again, she saw the Kia had turned
around and was heading back to
State Road 20.
As she slid off the road into
the driveway, she slammed into
their trash container and raced up
to the house. Knowing that her
husband was at home, she blasted
the car hom.
Running inside, she yelled,
"Somebody tried to kill me!" Her
husband, who had been napping,
grabbed the phone and called
Alerts were quickly issued
in the area and surrounding
counties. Deputies did not find
any spent cartridges at the scene
but there was a deep nick in the
driver's door window. It's not
known if it was made by a bullet
or by the force of an object hitting
the window.
"I heard the 'pow'," she said,
adding, "I wasn't going to give
them another chance to shoot at
She said she can't identify the
person who approached her. All
she can recall is that the person
was short, had something she
believed to be a gun in his hand
and was wearing a royal blue
jacket, with the hood pulled
forward. "I didn't see his face,"
she said.
The Leon County Sheriff's
Office checked an intersection
where both cars had traveled
Friday in hopes of getting a tag
number or further information,
but found the cameras were not
turned on that day.

Wade said Hanna, who had spoken earlier with R.G. Brown about
hauling the milling, called Brown on May 15 to ask him to send two
trucks that day and deliver it to Arnold's home.
Outlining the testimony to come, Wade said Liberty County Road
and Bridge employee Patricia Alfonso would tell the jury that she
realized the two R.G. Brown trucks weren't going the same Way as
the county vehicles after getting their loads. Wade said that she will
tell the jury that Hanna chuckled and commented, "I guess we know
where those two loads went."
She will state that another county employee commented, "We
shouldn't do that," to which Hanna did not reply.
Wade said, "an interesting set of calls that afternoon" show how
events transpired. The defendant's cell phones records show an 11
minutes call to R.G. Brown's number, then a four minute call from
Brown to Hanna and a call between DOT loader operator Lorenzo
Beckwith to Hanna. That was followed by another call from Hanna to
Brown, then by a call from Hanna to Lorenzo Beckwith, and finally,
two calls from Hanna to Arnold.
According to Wade, Hanna brought a $250 check, made out on the
account of L.B. and Sybil Arnold, to pay for the pickup and delivery
of the milling.
"Mr. Hanna admits he told R.G. Brown's driver how to get to the
milling yard," said Wade, but "he denies he delivered the check."

"First, we do not believe the evidence shows Mr. Hanna stole or
intended to steal anything from the Department of Transportation,"
said defense attorney Richard Smith in his opening statement.
He takes issue with the assistant state attorney's contention that
the milling was picked up on the 15th.
In fact, said Smith, the milling was picked up on May 16. "The two
DOT employees both stated previously that these events happened,
Tuesday, May 16, not the day that phone calls support Mr. Wade's
theory," he told the jury.
He said his client was not behind the pickup. In fact, he said that
Commissioner Arnold would be testifying "somewhat to his own
peril" that he had an agreement with the previous DOT supervisor,
Earnest Hill, to get milling at no charge when it was available. Arnold
believed that agreement was still in effect with the current DOT
supervisor, he said. "He (Arnold) thought he could lawfully receive
milling from DOT."
He went on to state that Arnold would testify that he "never had
an agreement with Mr. Hanna" and had asked for the milling from
"a person in a supervisory position."
"There's some discrepancy on how much DOT let out the door,"

he said, explaining that Liberty County's Road Department logs show
that they were to get 48 loads. He said over that two day period, the
Gadsden County site had 39 loads of milling to go out on the first day
and 34 on the second, which doesn't match up with Wade's figures.
The pattern of calls on Hanna's cell are easily explained, Smith
said, because "Mr. Arnold and Mr. Hanna talked on the phone all
the time."
He said his client's only link to the milling delivery "was giving a
driver directions to the pit at Mr. Brown's request."
He then disputed the grand theft charge, which means the stolen
property is worth more than $300. "There was no weigh-in at the
yard and no records of the condition of the milling, which was very
poor," he said.
"DOT can't value it (the milling) at all because they don't sell it.
They give it away."
Smith said Hanna "didn't plan it, haul it or pay for it." He said
Arnold will testify that "he went to Mr. Brown and handed him the
check himself."

When R.G. Brown was called to the stand Tuesday morning and
asked how well he knew Hanna, he replied, "We've been lifelong brothers."
He said that long before May of 2006, he had talked to both Arnold
and Hanna about hauling milling to the commissioner's home. He
and Arnold agreed on a price of $125 per load.
Originally, they had planned to get the milling from a forest pit in
Sumatra but then learned the milling was no longer available.
In May, he said Hanna called to check the price again and asked
him to send out loads that day.
A couple of days later, "Sammy brought me a check on L.B. and
Sybil Arnold's account made out to cash for $250." Brown said he
signed it over to his secretary who was about to leave on vacation.
"Are you positive about who brought the check?" Wade asked.
"One hundred percent sure," Brown said.
When asked what he thought the milling was worth, Brown replied,
"Milling use to run $600 a load."
Hanna's attorney challenged Brown's recollection of events and
asked what day his trucks made the delivery to Arnold's home. He
replied he wasn't sure and said he wasn't required to keep records.
Smith then asked, "What if Mr. Arnold said he brought you the
Brown replied, "I'd call him a liar."
The trial is scheduled to resume Wednesday morning.

Students should be taught about their rights as Americans

To the editor:
My name is Billy D. Pullam,
I have seen people good and
bad mistreated for fifty years.
Most of the time when a person
is mistreated, it is because
that person doesn't know their
rights. You know we do have
the constitution of our rights
recorded. Where those need to
be is in our schools. Why isn't
our Constitution, Bill of Rights
and Declaration of Independence
taught in schools? How many
family members, kin and others
have you seen that don't know
their rights but have to serve
time for no reason? Somebody
is going to serve time. (That is
Law). Our lawyers are the ones
that are making a living off our
ignorance. I think people need

to stand up for their Rights. We
need these things taught in our
There was a Bill of Rights
written in 1789 that if we are
recorded as a person in the U.S.
(Law) we have the right of man
and citizen. These documents
belong to us. The Constitution, the
Bill of Rights and the Declaration
of Independence.
We have children that now
have children that don't know any
of the things I am saying. We are



facing a future you have never
faced before. Our children need
to know what their rights are.
Our Constitution was written
in 1787. We need that in our
schools. They want to teach
evolution. Math is important,
reading is, spelling is, English,
Science and etc.
All of these are important, but
where are our rights? Some people
are jailed or held against their will
because they are ignorant of their
rights. Let me explain. The Bill

Bailes is right everyone should speak up

To the editor:
I read Mr. Bailes' letter and he
is right about people speaking up.
But, most people are too afraid
to speak up for themselves but
it won't get any better until they
I have stated my opinions
many times. It made my life even
worse, but as long as I can I will
speak up, I don't have much, but
I do have some pride left. They
can take everything else but not
Calhoun County does not

seem to be accountable for the
laws other counties do. The ones
in power make their own rules.
But I can remember when we did
have truth and honesty we could
depend on.
There were things done to me
that were so wrong. But I am only
one and the battle that I had to
fight there were many of them.
I did not have the money to
retain an attorney. I have been
told by lots of people "you really

the things people will do to take
you down.
I have legal documents stating
all the wrong and unbelievable
things done to me.
I don't ask anyone to take
my word. If you think I lie or
exaggerate the case, call me I will
be more than glad to show you
evidence that might wake some
people up.
Alice Nell Goff,

of Rights is a term for laws that
guarantee certain rights to the
citizens or a country or state.
These rights are amendments in
our constitution.
Let me ask you, can you answer
these questions? Who wrote the
Declaration of Independence?
When was the Declaration of

Independence kept hidden?
Why? Where is the original
document now kept? When was
the Declaration of Independence
first read in public? Interesting.
Have you thought about that? It
is very crucial that you take note
for the near future.

tential for unmanaged motor vehicle use
to disrupt on-going research projects.
The proposed action will close National
Forest System lands comprising the
Chipola Experimental Forest to motor
vehicle use by delineating the boundar-
ies of the Experimental Forest and post-
ing Motor Vehicles Restricted signs at all
entry and information points. Motorized
access to the Chipola Experimental For-
est lands owned by the U.S. Forest Ser-
vice would be limited to administrative

'Grease' first hit theatres 20 years
ago this summer. At the Movie oh
