Over 3 pounds of marijuana


seized in Bristol traffic stop


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
An Altha man is facing
distribution charges after more
than three pounds of marijuana
was found in his vehicle Saturday
night in Bristol, according to a
report from the Liberty County
Sheriff's Department.
Deputies then used the driver
to help them arrest one of his
customers who was waiting
for a pound of marijuana to be
delivered.
Jason Lamar Tucker, 31, of
Altha was arrested after his car
was pulled over while traveling
on County Road 12 South around
10:39 p.m. when Cpl. Todd
Wheetley saw that his tag light
was not working.
The deputy noticed the odor of
raw marijuana coming from inside


Major Donnie Conyers and Liberty
County Sheriff Harrell Wood Revell are
shown with the marijuana and cash
confiscated last week.


the vehicle as he spoke with the driver.
After being joined at the scene by Deputy Wade
Kelly, Wheetley searched Tucker's car and found a
vinyl bag in the rear passenger floor board that held
six clear plastic bags of marijuana, a digital scale and
several more clear plastic bags commonly used to
package the illegal weed.
In the trunk was a large brown paper bag which
held a gallon-size plastic bag of marijuana. The deputy
also discovered a large piece of marijuana wrapped in
clear plastic. Together, the marijuana weighed in at
3.4 pounds.
"It's mine. I was delivering it," Tucker told


deputies when they asked who
the marijuana belonged to. Where
was he supposed to deliver it? "I
was taking it to my cousin down
past the Slip and Slide," Tucker
told them, referring to the area
along County Road 333.
Tucker then agreed to cooperate
with deputies and was released to
continue his delivery under their
surveillance.
At 11:42 p.m., Tucker went
to the NW Flint Avenue home of
Tommy Wayne Tucker, 26, where
he handed over a one pound bag
of marijuana in exchange for
$1,200 in cash.
Tucker left the home and went
to a secure location to meet with
deputies, where the money was
confiscated.
About 30 minutes later, Deputy


Timothy Partridge and Cpl. Wheetley went to the Flint
Avenue residence and made an arrest, charging Tommy
Wayne Tucker with purchase of a controlled substance
and possession of a controlled substance with intent to
sell. The suspect admitted that the marijuana was in a
bucket in a bedroom on the north end ofhis mobile home.
Jason Lamar Tucker was charged with possession
of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession
of drug paraphernalia. He was transferred to the jail in
Marianna because he has three outstanding warrants
in Jackson County.
His cousin was released on $15,000 bond
Saturday.

State attorney criticizes acquittal

by judge in Sammy Hanna case


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The State Attorney's Office is not happy about
the acquittal issued by Circuit Court Judge Ralph
L. Smith Jr. following the recent grand theft trial of
Sammy Hanna.
The former Liberty County Road-Superintendent
was charged with stealing two loads of asphalt milling
from a Dept. of Transportation pit in Gadsden County
by arranging to have it loaded on private trucks and
sent to the home of Liberty County Commissioner
L.B. Arnold.
The judge denied a motion for acquittal made by
Hanna's attorney at the end of the March 17 19 trial.
Amistrial was declared when the jury was deadlocked
After deliberating for five hours.
The next week, Judge Smith filed a judgment
of acquittal, dropping the charges against Hanna.
The judge explained his decision by stating that the
evidence was insufficient to warrant a conviction.
"What changed during the weekend and the court
holiday of Good Friday to make sufficient evidence
become insufficient?" asks State Attorney Willie
Meggs in a response filed this week with the Liberty
County Clerk of Court's Office. Meggs said "ample
evidence was submitted to the jury" and called the
acquittal "nonsensical."


Meggs asks that the acquittal be reconsidered. "For
some reason, unknown to the state or the defendant
.and without any notice or input from the State or the
defendant or any additional facts that the state is aware
of between March 20 and March 23, the court

WE MUST FIGHT TO OVER-
COME TEMPTATION
Text: Ephesians 6:10-18
Calvin was the little boy in the
cartoon who carried his stuffed tiger,
Hobbes, everywhere. Calvin was
thinking aboutChristmas. He said,
"I've been good all day."
Hobbes said, "Christmas is get-
ting near, huh?"
"You got it," Calvin replied, "I've
been wondering. Is it truly being
good if the only reason I behave is
so I can get more loot at Christmas?
Is that good enough, or do I have to
be good in my heart and spirit? Do
I really have to be good or do I just
have to act good?"
Hobbes said, "In your case, Santa
will have to take what he can get."
Calvin asked, "How good do I
have to act? Really good, or pretty
good?"
You might be able to slide by
Santa Claus that way. But with the
Holy, Righteous, Just, God of the
Universe, you actually have to be
good. The problem is that we all
fall short of actually being good (Ro
3:23). What can you do?
You can accept Christ as your
Lord and Savior. Confess your sins
to Christ, trust Him to forgive you,
and"obey Him. The Holy Spirit will
come to live with you. God's Spirit
unites with your spirit making you
holy and pure before God.
Then you have to-learn how to
live a holy life. God will begin to
conform you into the image of His
Son (Ro 8:29). It is a life long growth
process called sanctification. That is
where the battle really begins.
Being good in your heart and spir-
it is not easy. Apart from God, you
can't do it on your own. But the Spirit
will empower you and strengthen you
for the fight. That is what is meant
by, "...Be strong in the Lord, and in
the power of His might (KJV)."

Engine #444 was the last steam


locomotive on the M&B Railroad


S team locomotive Number 444
was built in 1911 at the Bald-
win Locomotive Works in Philadel-
phia for the Brinson railroad. It was $
subsequently owned by Savannah & m
Albany Railroad Company. 3rd
It operated as late as 1947 as a
"stand-by" locomotive after the first
M&B diesel locomotives had arrived. Blountstown'
Engine #444 was the last of seven Day will be hel

M&B. Time on the gro
The M&B Railroad operated for M&B Railroad
63 years (1909 1972) between Mari- be music, arts
anna and Blountstown. It provided antique car disp
passenger service until 1929. After would like to
that, the M&B shipped agricultural Adrienne W
products and lumber. During its op- e-mail mbrail
eration, the 29-mile line was Florida's
shortest railroad.
Before the M&B Railroad was abandoned, Engine #444
Swas sold (late 1960s early 1970s) to Dr. Albert Folds of
bMarianna, who for a number of years, displayed it on
the dairy farm of his father-in-law, Victor S. Bevis,


along State Road 71, just south of,
Malone.
The locomotive was later sold
and moved to the George Ranch in
Richmond, TX.
During late 1980s, an effort was
launched by a group in Blount-
stown to save the locomotive from
a scheduled scraping and to return
it to Blountstown as the centerpiece
for an historical display of the M&B
Railroad.
It was restored and placed on
display at its current location in the
M&B Train Park.
Along with the locomotive, a
caboose from the Apalachicola
Northern was added.
The original M&B caboose sat
for many years rotting away in the


woods behind the Depot and was the subject of many
paintings by local artists. It was not able to be saved, but
its steel undercarriage now serves as the base of the
wood car for engine #444.

Upsurge of Dental Caries in Children
A few weeks ago, in another local newspaper, an article was
published on dental caries, or cavities, for which several local pe-
diatric dentists were interviewed. The article correctly pointed out
that there is currently an upsurge of dental caries in children.
In fact, this epidemic of caries is not limited to children, but af-
ST fects all the age groups of our population. Teens and young adults
frequently arrive at the dental office with severe, and sometimes
devastating, caries primarily due to soft drink consumption. Al-
though older patients do not usually practice these destructive
habits, they are more vulnerable to root surface caries as the
periodontal (gum) tissue has receded and exposed the fragile
Dr. Larry J. Cook parts of the tooth to the acid and bacteria in the oral environ-
ment.
The shame is that these sugar-related caries are virtually always preventable. An under-
standing of the nature of the relationship between simple sugar consumption and caries is
critical of the prevention of caries. Surprisingly, it is not the amount of sugar consumed, but
the frequency of exposure to sugars that is the most important causative factor.
When a person consumes sweets, the sugar causes the pH in the mouth to become
more acidic. Streptococcus mutans, the bacteria primarily responsible for dental caries,
thrive in an acidic environment. Therefore when one ingests sugar, the acidity level gener-
ates ideal conditions for dental caries. The key factor is that after sugar has affected the
acidity of a person's mouth, it takes 45-60 minutes to return to normal levels. This means
that if you ingest sugar more than once an hour, whether it's a soda, throat lozenge, or
piece of chewing gum, you create a continuously favorable environment for dental caries.
Dental caries is one of the most common diseases known to affect humans and may
always be so. However, you can improve the dental health of yourself and your family by
limiting your sugar intake, but more importantly, limit the frequency of exposure to sugary
snacks, soda, and fruit juice.


Unfortunately, the availability of sugary snack and
drinks in our modern world makes prevention difficult.
However, there are several simple tasks involved in
caries prevention, including timely dental check-ups,
fluoride treatments, and personal hygiene, such as
brushing and flossing.
We all like something sweet at times, but for a health-
ier dental future, you should limit sweet snacks and so-
das to meal times or non-sugar drinks in between meals.
The frequency of exposure is the most important factor
to consider for preventing the formation of caries.

No rational reason for drug use
To the editor:
I have searched my thoughts trying to come up with any rational
reason for illegal drug use. As long as there is a demand there will be
someone to supply the product. It has always been my opinion that
no one forced anyone to try alcohol or drugs for the first time. Any
prudent person can see how a person acts while using drugs. Of course
medical science says a glass of wine with a meal aides in digestion.
However, just to go out to get intoxicated is dumb and dangerous.
People don't think rationally when intoxicated.This leads to death by
DUI, unwanted pregnancies and violent behavior. Illegal drugs such
as we read about in last week's paper, only a crazy person would want
to put those toxic chemicals in their body. Lye, denatured alcohol,
iodine etc are poisons. Why are so many people flirting with death ?
I think that people found manufacturing these lethal concoctions or
possessing them to sell should be charged with attempted murder and
those buying them should be placed into a mental hospital.
Now we have many drinking establishments where people go and
spend hours drinking then get in their vehicles and drive. Where is
our law enforcement officer on Friday and Saturday night ? The way
I heard it, it is entrapment to patrol these establishments. There is
a difference in having a beer with a meal and having a twelve pack
instead of a meal. Goes for the fisherman, too. Driving a boat at high
speed and consuming beer after beer is dangerous. Why does having
fun have to include alcohol and drugs?
I see it everywhere. What has happened to having a soft drink
and hot dog for a cookout? People hardly ever buy soft drinks on
weekends. Lot of people consider a party as building a fire and seeing
who can drink the most and consume the most drugs. Definitely not
family oriented.
Wake up people We will all die soon enough. Why rush it? It
may be your own loved one you kill, or your child that you leave
parentless.

Altha resident complains

about care he received

at local emergency room
To the editor:
On Saturday, March the 29th, while working on a project in my yard
at home I sustained a cut to my right hand (top of finger next to thumb)
which was attended to in your emergency room by Dr Farooqi, The
cut required seven stitches and was approximately 2.5 cm long.
I was given instructions in the nurse's station and told that night
to remove the gauze bandages, wash the cut and leave it uncovered
while sleeping which I did. Then the following morning I replaced
the bandage with Curad bandages I have at home and continued to
complete the work I had started the day before.
Sunday night however when I went to clean and replace the
bandage I noticed that four of the stitches were completely gone and
the others seemed loose and the wound had opened slightly so I pulled
it together with bandaids and left them on overnight. The following
day I found another stitch was missing and the two remaining seemed
as if the knots had never been tied, as they were quite loose, I then
taped a popsicle stick under my finger to immobilize it, re-bandaged
the whole thing and hoped for the best.
On April 2, the wound seems to be alright except for the fact I
probably will have a little larger scar than I would have if the stitches
held originally.
Now I don't know whether the problem was with the stitches being
so small, not knotted properly or with the stitches but I would have
been better off I suspect driving a few extra miles to another hospital
which is sad. Any business is subject to the approval of its consumers
and we all know what a problem Calhoun Liberty Hospital has had
staying open at all.
If we could just get as good a service from our medical personnel as
I am sure I will get from your accounting office when the bill arrives
promptly with every detail accounted for, we would truly have a
fantastic hospital. I for one will take a few extra minutes in the future,
if necessary, to drive in a different direction than Blountstown.
Sincerely, Timothy J. Brown, Altha

Scholarship recipient appreciates

efforts of teacher, pastor & others
To the editor:
I, Junicia Baker and family, would personally like to give a great
amount of appreciation and thanks to Blountstown High School
faculty and Rivertown Community Church.
We would like to give a special thanks to Lorraine McClellan (BHS
faculty member) and Paul Smith (pastor- of Rivertown Community
Church).
Because of everyone's gratitude and graciousness I was able to
also receive a Take Stock in Children Scholarship which was a big
surprise to both me and my family. I am honored and very excited
that I was able to receive this wonderful scholarship this is a blessing
from God that I myself am very proud of. I have worked so hard to
get me where I am now and I will continue to work twice as hard
to reach all of my goals. I would like to say that because of you
wonderful people I will have a chance to make something of myself
and to follow all of my dreams.
Once again, thank you so much for everything. Thank you for
believing in me and also helping me believe in myself, thanks for
giving me the knowledge to know that I can do all things if I believe
and work hard to achieve.
Thank you,
Junicia Baker, Blountstown High School student

Bristol mayor says Brenda Gail Clay


did much to assist area's Sr. Citizens
STo the editor:
The Journal published a picture of the groundbreaking held for the
special needs shelter and identified me as "Administrative Secretary
for the Sheriff's Office." Sheriff Revell, Major Conyers and the entire
staff are very pleased to see the shelter being constructed to serve the
needs of the community.
However, my interest that day was for the senior citizens of the
City of Bristol. It was my pleasure to represent the City as Mayor at
the groundbreaking. The citizens of Bristol, along with citizens of the
whole county, are fortunate to have had Brenda Gail Clay to work for
projects that are very much needed to assist the seniors in our area.
Brenda Gail will be remembered for her compassion and tireless
efforts to assist our seniors. I'm sure her compassion is shared by
Small the special people who work at the Senior Citizens Center and by
, our Clerk of Court and County Commissioners. They are continuing
Work to meet the Seniors' needs.

HANNA TRIAL

insufficient," Meggs states in the
first paragraph of his response.
The state attorney pointed out

the end of the trial he "made the
legal determination that there was

ownership of

milling is


issue of a benefit is a question of
fact for a jury to determine and
ample evidence was submitted
to the jury."
*Meggs stated that it was
not Hanna's use of the milling
that made it a crime, "it is the
deprivations of the items stolen
to the victim (Liberty County)
that make it a crime."
In Judge Smith's order, it
was stated that the asphalt milling


"For the court to


suggest that nearly 40

tons of milling does

not have 'any' value

defies logic. Even

dirt has a value. But

again, the value of the

stolen property is a

question of fact for a

jury. Common sense

says it has value."
STATE ATTORNEY
WILLIE MEGGS


not the issue.
The ability of Liberty County to
obtain the asphalt milling from
the State of Florida for use by the
Liberty County Road Department
is the issue...Hanna, by his actions
misappropriated the milling that
was loaded on private trucks
for his boss, L.B. Arnold. It is
the misrepresentation, not the
ownership, that is the theft."
Hanna "was the facilitator and
caused state property to be hauled
to a private individual, L.B.
Arnold. Under common sense
and any logic, the defendant's
misrepresentation was that the
milling was authorized for Liberty
County but was diverted to his
boss' home is theft."
"Numerous nonsensical
findings" were made in the
judge's acquittal order, according
to Meggs. Judge Smith said
the evidence did not show that
Hanna ever "obtained, used or
endeavored to obtain or use any
asphalt milling of the DOT,"
and, "the evidence shows that
he did not receive any benefit."
Meggs responded to these
statements by noting that the legal
definition of theft means taking
something "either temporarily
or permanently, for his own use
or to the use of any person not
entitled to it." Meggs added, "The


received by
the county
commissioner
"was of such
inferior quality
which is made
available to non-
governmental
users atno cost."
Meggs called
that statement
"baffling at
best." Meggs
said the case
had nothing to
do with milling
Arnold had
originally tried
to obtain from
an abandoned
DOT site
in Franklin
County. "It has
everything to do


with the unauthorized fraudulent
taking and using asphalt milling
from an open and active DOT site
in Gadsden County," according to
Meggs. "There is no evidence that
the DOT will give state property
to a private individual."
And, in reply to Paragraph 6
of the judge's order of acquittal in
which he said that the state did not
prove that the milling delivered to
the commissioner's home had
any value, Meggs responded:
"For the court to suggest that
nearly 40 tons of milling does
not have 'any' value defies logic.
Even dirt has a value. But again,
the value of the stolen property
is a question of fact for a jury.
Common sense says it has value.
If the value is not established
to be in excess of $300 then the
theft clearly would fall into the
category of petty theft."
Meggs concluded that
Hanna's motion for dismissal was
not renewed after the jury was
deadlocked and Smith did not
have the "inherent power" to raise
the motion on his own initiative.
"This court granted a motion for a
judgment of acquittal that simply
was not before the court and the
order granting a judgment of
acquittal should be withdrawn,"
according to the state attorney.

that was a great pitchers' duel
turned out to be a cruel April
Fool's joke on the tenth-ranked
Altha Wildcats.
For the second time
this season second-ranked
Bozeman Bucks (15-1; 8-0,
2-2A) whitewashed the
Wildcats, 2-0, and sewed up
the #1 seed in the district last
Tuesday night.
Keith Kirkpatrick (6-2, .840
ERA) pitched well enough
for the Wildcats (15-5; 4-2,
2-2A) to win but he got no run
support behind him. In fact,
Kirkpatrick had the only hit
of the game for the Wildcats,
a bunt single in the second
inning and he stole second.
In his sixth complete game he
struck out 6 Bucks, walked 3,
and gave up only an earned
run.
Bozeman scored their first
run in the second inning when
the batter reached on a two-out
single. Kirkpatrick's pick-
off throw to first and a wild
pitch allowed the runner to
advance to second and third

Chew to cross home plate to

In his second start of the

Prevent water loss by maintaining irrigation systems


Automatic irrigation systems
are convenient devices. Many
homeowners have them installed,
set their timers and then tend to
forget about them.
However, bliss sometimes
turns to shock when homeowners
install irrigation systems to
conserve water, only to find out
that their water bills have doubled
or tripled since they installed their
systems!
A sprinkler system is
mechanical, and we all know
mechanical things break, so
chances are you'll eventually
discover a minor (or major)
sprinkler repair that needs your
attention.
Routine maintenance for your
sprinkler system is more important
than you think. Broken pipes or
sprinkler heads are the obvious
water and money wasters. The not
so obvious problems could even
cost you more. Since sprinkler
systems should start early in the
morning when home owners are
asleep or getting ready for work,
most home owners will not spot
system problems.
Some things that indicate your


may have a sprinkler problem
includes: weak output, brown
spots in your yard during dry
periods, the lowest sprinkler
continuing to run long after the
system has been turned off, wet
or soggy spots in your yard or
the water meter has a continual
slow spin.
So to begin your spring
sprinkler system inspection,
turn the system on and look for
geysers. Geysers usually indicate
a broken sprinkler head and
should be replaced.
When replacing, be sure to
look for the cause of the break.
Occasionally, sprinkler depth
needs to be adjusted to ensure
the mower doesn't damage the
sprinkler head.
Make sure the sprinkler heads
are properly adjusted. Sprinklers
should be watering the landscape,
not the street or sidewalk. This
problem can usually be corrected
by putting'in adjustable arc
nozzles or simply tuning down
the water output from a nozzle.
Look for signs of broken risers
beneath the sprinklers. A cracked
or broken riser will allow water


I .
by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County

to boil up around the sprinkler.
Sometimes this is obvious--you'll
have a traffic stopping geyser.
Another sign may be a hole in the
dirt around the sprinkler head.
Inspect the sprinkler "riser
wiper seal" for water flow. The
wiper seal is a soft plastic seal
around the pop-up stem that seals
the riser so it won't leak. It is also
responsible for keeping dirt out of
the sprinkler body, and is the most
important part in determining
how long the sprinkler will last.
A small amount of water emitting
past the wiper seal is acceptable
while the system is running.

Excessive water flow while a
system is operating indicates a
damaged or dirty seal. Water
flowing unchecked past a wiper
seal will cause a loss in pressure
and affect the other sprinklers'
performances.
It's also a good idea to annually
clean the spray head filters. To
clean filters installed under the
pop up stem, unscrew the cap
from the body. Don't allow dirt
to fall into the sprinkler body
while the riser assembly and cap
are removed. Remove and clean
the filter.
Also be sure to clean clogged
nozzles. Simply flush with water
or lightly tap it on a firm surface.
While the filter is out, turn on
the sprinkler and flush out the
sprinkler body being sure that you
don't allow any dirt to flow back
into the head. Reinstall the filter
and nozzle, turn on the zone and
recheck for effective coverage.
Also be sure to test your rain

Florida Agriculture Literacy Day

celebrated in Liberty County


Monica L. Brinkley, UF/IFAS Liberty
County Extension Office
Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom, Inc's Florida
Agriculture Literacy was observed
Thursday, March 27 in Liberty
County. The Florida Agriculture
in the Classroom's mission is
to help teachers and students
gain a better understanding of
Florida agriculture. Five of
Liberty County's agriculture
industry volunteers read a special
children's book "These Florida
Farms" to 3rd grade students at W.
R. Tolar and Hosford Schools.
"These Florida Farms" is a
children's book developed by the
Florida Department ofAgriculture
and Consumer Services' Division
of Marketing to celebrate
Florida Ag Literacy Day's fifth
anniversary. Gary Seamans
wrote and Mike Wright illustrated
the book, both employees of the
department. The rhyming book
chronicles the adventures of


two students who follow a safari
guide from a grocery store to
farms around the state to learn
about the different commodities
produced in Florida.
Liberty County Extension
Director, Monica L. Brinkley
along with Liberty County
Farm Bureau volunteers April
Faircloth, George Ann Hosford,
Jeane Shuler, Billie Revell
and Iris Eubanks strive to help
educate the state's future voters
and elected officials about the
significance of Florida's food
and fiber system by participating
in Florida Agriculture Literacy
Day.
Florida Ag in the Classroom is
able to provide these Ag Literacy
Day books, lessons and other
items for free to agriculture
industry volunteers because of
the funding it receives from the
sales of the Florida agriculture
specialty license plate, also know
as the "Ag Tag".

ALTHA, APRIL 4-April
showers not only produce May
flowers but it brought back the
Wildcats' long-ball before play
was suspended after two innings
of play.
Trying to beat the rain, the
Wildcats (16-5; 5-2, 2-2A)
wasted no time jumping on
the Blountstown Tigers (6-14;
2-5, 2-2A). Leadoff batter
Josh McIntosh singled to left
centerfield. Tad Scott reached
first after being hit by the first
pitch he saw. Noah Byler turned
around the first pitch he saw and
drilled it over the scoreboard in
left field, his third homer of the
year. Keith Kirkpatrick was
issued a one-out walk, reached
second on the pitcher's errant
pick-offthrow, and he stole third
base. He scored on a fielding
error by the second baseman to
give Altha a 4-0 lead
In the second inning Josh
McIntosh singled through the
right side of the infield. Tad
Scott worked the count full
before launching his second
dinger of the season over the
centerfield fence to make it a
6-0 ballgame.
Around noon on Monday
Blountstown forfeited the game
and, according to the NFHS
baseball rulebook, the final
score of a forfeited game is
7-0.
Tad Scott (7-1-1; .987 ERA)
recorded his first and the
Wildcats' first no-hitter of the
season. With 34 pitches in 3
innings of work he struck out
