Blountstown man convicted of child


molestation; will spend life in prison


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Blountstown man is facing life
in prison following his conviction
Friday on five counts of sexual battery
on a child less than 12 years of age,
and two counts of lewd or lascivious
molestation.
A Calhoun County jury deliberated
just two hours before finding Sam
Sterling Alford, 41, of NE State Road
69, guilty of the molestation of two
sisters over a 10 year span, according
to a news release from State Attorney
Steve Meadows.
Five of the sexual battery counts and
one of the lewd or lascivious counts
were committed when the girls were
less than 12 years of age. Another lewd -
or lascivious count was committed
when the victim was 13.
Alford, who has no prior felony
record, is scheduled for sentencing
July 30. The sexual battery counts


carry a mandatory
sentence of life in
prison.
Alfo rd 'was
arrested following
an investigation
by the Calhoun
County Sheriff's -
Office prompted
by a report from a SAM ALFORD
former girlfriend
who said her
daughters had been molested several
years earlier.
The arrest report listed several
allegations made by the girls, who
both.said they were between four and
five years of age when they were first
molested by Alford.
The girls reported that their
encounters with Alford continued for
approximately a decade. One of the
sisters said she was victimized at least


five times before she turned 12. The
older sister told an investigator that the
incidents between her and Alford were
too numerous to remember, but said
something happened at every place they
lived and continued until she was 14.
During that time, the family was in and
out of six different residences.
The mother said that when she
originally confronted Alford-with her-
young daughters' allegations years
ago, he convinced her that nothing had
happened.
Last year, the eldest victim learned
that Alford had a new girlfriend, who
was the mother of a six-year-old girl.
The young woman went to the house
Alford shared with them and confronted
him in front of the little girl's mother.
Assistant State Attorney Matt Wilson
called the young woman's tearful
testimony"compelling," and creditedher
initiative with bringing the case to trial.

Blountstown City

Election not needed
The taxpayers won't have to foot the bill for this
year's scheduled Blountstown City Election. The
candidates for the three open seats are all running
without opposition.
Winston Deason will once again take on the
duties of mayor. The former Blountstown Police
Chief was first elected to thatjob in 2004. Marshal
Harpool was elected to the post in 2006. Following
Harpool's death earlier this year, Councilman
Phillip Hill filled in as mayor pro-tem. City Manager
James Woods said he expects the council to appoint
Deason to fill the remainder of Harpool's term
before his term officially begins at the beginning
of the year.
Councilman Tony Shoemake will keep his Ward 4
council seat after failing to draw any opposition.
David V. Blair will take over the Ward 3 seat
after being the only candidate to qualify for the spot,
which was formerly held by John Thomlinson. Blair
is expected to take office in January of 2008.
Woods said the city would "probably save
$6,000" by being able to forgo the election this year.

Pair charged with neglect after


leaving four kids at boat landing


Two people are each facing
four charges of child neglect
after driving off and leaving
four juveniles at Johnny Boy
Landing Saturday, according to a
report from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office.
Stephen Edward Norris, 32,
and Shelly Kaye Harrelson, 37,
had taken four minors to the
landing when the couple became
involved in a verbal altercation.
At that point, Norris told the

four to get out of the vehicle while
he and Harrelson drank alcohol
and continued their argument.


Before driving off, Norris told
one of the juveniles to call her
father to come get them if they
wanted a ride home.
The girl contacted her father,
who drove from Panama City
to pick up the group. The four
had been abandoned at the
boat landing, surrounded by
approximately 100 strangers,
"with no money, no food, no
transportation and no sign of a
parent," the deputy's report stated.

Clerk arrested for battery on female customer


A convenience store clerk
has been charged with battery
after a female customer reported
he touched her inappropriately
Friday night.
Abdur R. Muskuri was arrested
after the June 13 incident at the
Pit Stop store in Blountstown.
The customer said her sister
waited for her in the car when
she stopped at the store. When
she went to the counter to pay
for her items, she said the clerk
- who she only knew as "Moe"
- squeezed her cheeks, said he
hadn't seen her for a while and
asked if her boyfriend or husband


was outside in the car. She replied
that she was with her sister.
The clerk then invited her to
get a drink and said he would
pay for it.
She said she was standing
at the cooler, choosing a drink,
when the clerk walked up beside
her, placed his hand around her
waist and.pulled her close to
him.
The woman got a drink and
tried to pull away from the clerk
but said he refused to let go.
She said she then turned away
from him in an attempt to leave
when he reached from behind and


grabbed her breasts. She said she
pulled away and swung backward
at him to get him to let her go.
She said the clerk was the
only one in the store at the time,
although another customer was
entering as she was leaving.
Unsure of the clerk's identity,
she told a deputy that he "was
not the man who usually ran the
store."
During the investigation, the
deputy checked with the store
owner in an effort to review the
store security video but learned
there was no tape in the recorder
that evening.

Retail theft arrest
A woman who walked out
of the Dollar General in Bristol
without paying for an item tucked
in her shirt was arrested last week.
According to a report from the
Liberty County Sheriff's Office,
a store clerk noticed Pearlie.R.
Carroll, 42, when she took a bra
from store shelf, hid it under her
shirt and left on June 18.
When the clerk stopped her
outside and demanded that she
return the item, Carroll handed it
over.
Carroll admitted to a deputy that
she had taken the item. She was
charged with retail theft.

Three other vehicles sped off as
the patrol car pulled in.
When the deputy approached the
Jeep driven by Shuler, he noticed
a large bottle of an alcoholic
beverage sitting between the
driver's seat and front passenger
seat.
After giving a breath sample to
determine his level of intoxication,
Shuler reportedly said, "I've drank
at least a 12 pack tonight and I
know I'm going to fail the test."
Shuler's first sample resulted
in a blood alcohol concentration
level of .129 percent; his second
was .133. The legal limit for
drivers in Florida is .08.

Nelson, Boyd launch effort to study Aplachicola River, Bay


WASHINGTON,D.C.-U.S.
Senator Bill Nelson (D-Florida)
and U.S. Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-North Florida)
introduced legislation calling
for a comprehensive study of
the water management, needs,
and conservation along the
Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-
Flint (ACF) River System.


The legislation introduced
in the Senate and the House
of Representatives would
require the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers to enter into an
agreement with the National
Research Council (NRC) of the
National Academies to conduct
a basin-wide assessment of the
ACF system.


"We cannot sit back and
watch as the river and bay
decline," said Nelson. "The
Apalachicola River is suffering
under the current way of doing
business. We need a solution
that takes into account the
environmental sensitivities and
real water needs of the citizens
of the three surrounding states.


This study is a first step toward
reaching that goal."
"It is clear from talking with
Florida's stakeholders, the Corps,
and the Fish & Wildlife Service
that more information about
the ACF system, specifically
the impact of freshwater flows
on the Apalachicola Bay, is
desperately needed," said Boyd.


"This study will show the real
impact that low water flows have
had on our river and bay. The
National Research Council has a
long history of providing policy
makers and the public with
expert advice based on sound
scientific evidence and research.
A study by the NRC will allow

MY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
WORKING WITH TWO TAX COLLEC-
TORS HAS GIVEN ME THE KNOWL-
EDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF
THE TREMENDOUS RESPONSIBIL-
ITY OF THE TAX COLLECTOR'S OF- i
FICE. WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE, I AM
AN EFFICIENT STEWARD OF TAX-
PAYERS DOLLARS AND ASSURE THAT THE
REVENUE IS COLLECTED WITH ACCOUNT-
ABILITY, DISBURSED AND AVAILABLE TO THE
TAXING AUTHORITIES FOR THE SERVICES
WE NEED.
The Tax Collector's Office is a business for the
STATE, COUNTY AND TAXING AUTHORITIES,
collecting, managing and disbursing MILLIONS
OF DOLLARS EACH YEAR AND is the only lo-
cally elected official whose service affects almost
every citizen, YET runs the office very efficiently
on a very limited budget and still provide these
services to the public. THIS IS QUITE AN UN-
DERTAKING AND REQUIRES MANY HOURS
OF PLANNING AND ORGANIZING.
"SERVICE" according to Webster's Diction-
ary is "WORK DONE OR DUTY PERFORMED
FOR OTHERS." The Tax Collector's Office serve
many citizens in a year. These services do not
only depend on the elected official, it depends
on many things; the budget given to you by
the BCC, the number employees you can em-
ploy -within that budget, available space and
the safety of your employees.
It is my goal and duty as Tax Collector that
each transaction is completed according to
Florida Law. This protects the CUSTOMER,
THE COUNTY AND THE TAX COLLECTOR'S
OFFICE from legal action that may result if not
completed correctly.
THE TAX COLLECTOR'S OFFICE IS RE-
QUIRED BY FLORIDA STATUES TO BE A COL-
LECTION AGENT. FOR:
Department of Highway Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles
Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission
Florida Department of Revenue
The state regulates and monitors every trans-
action completed in the Tax Collector's Office.
The fees for these transactions are set by
the State of Florida.
IN THE ABOVE AGENCIES WE SERVE
ABOUT 21,000 CUSTOMERS A YEAR.
The Tax Collector's Office is required by
FLORIDA STATUES TO COLLECT PROPERTY
TAX FOR THE COUNTY, SCHOOL, CITY AND
NWFWN. I have been responsible for collect-
ing, disbursing and balancing the tax roll since
1994 with no discrepancies or errors.
THE TAX COLLECTOR'S OFFICE SERVE
ABOUT 12,000 PROPERTY OWNERS A YEAR.
Money for these agencies is accounted for dai-
ly; reports printed and deposits balanced to the

penny before we go home at the end of the day.
We are audited yearly by the State of Florida and
the County Auditor. THE AUDIT FOR THE TAX
COLLECTOR'S OFFICE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF
WITH ACCURACY AND INTEGRITY.
THE TAX COLLECTOR'S OFFICE IS NOT
REQUIRED BY FLORIDA STATUES TO BE A
COLLECTION AGENT FOR THE DIVISION OF
DRIVER LICENSE. This service also depends
on the many things I stated above. In a year the
Tax Collector's Office served over 4,000 Driver
License customers coming from ALL SUR-
ROUNDING COUNTIES. This put a tremendous
burden on the MAIN TAG OFFICE AND CRIP-
PLED OUR ABILITY TO EFFICIENTLY SERVE
THE PEOPLE OF CALHOUN COUNTY in the
effort to perform duties of the Tax Collector's
Office that is REQUIRED BY FLORIDA STAT-
UES. With the great number of Driver License
customers added to customers in the other de-
partments, Tag and Title customers were waiting
a long time to do a transaction that takes minutes
to complete. Because of the long wait, many
CALHOUN COUNTY RESIDENTS were going
to surrounding counties for their personal and
business needs, RESULTING IN OUR COUNTY
losing revenue. THIS WAS TAKING DOLLARS
OUT OF OUR COUNTY.
I made the decision to discontinue Driver Li-
cense until I could reorganize and TRY to bring
the service back in a different location. THIS


TOOK TIME, IT DEPENDED ON RE-
LOCATING THE PROPERTY TAX
DEPARTMENT INTO THE MAIN OF-
FICE AND THE APPROVAL OF THE
BOARD OF COUNTY COMMIS-
SIONERS.
Driver License is renewed every
6 years. The State does not require


that you go to the Driver License Office in
person to-renew your license, unless there is
a problem. You can renew by MAIL OR THE
INTERNET. If an"eye exam is required, your
eye doctor furnishes a completed form that is
mailed along with your renewal. You receive
your license by return mail.
I AM SORRY IF I CAUSED A HARDSHIP ON
ANYONE! THAT WAS NOT MY INTENTION. I
have continued to move forward with much
criticism with reorganizing to serve everyone
in a more timely, efficient manner so that the
wait in the Tag and Title Department would be
just a.few minutes instead of 30 minutes and
BRING DOLLARS BACK INTO OUR COUNTY.
We can now offer the service of Driver Li-
cense to Calhoun and Liberty Residents in
a different office. I am very fortunate to be
able to hire J. D. Godwin of Calhoun County
to work in the.Driver License Department. He
has worked in the Marianna Driver License Of-
fice for six years. This made it possible to of-
fice Driver License MONDAY, TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY open from 8:00 until 4:00 (closed
for lunch 12:00-1:00 only in the Driver License
Office). THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH DRIVER
LICENSE CUSTOMERS FOR THE DRIVER LI-
CENSE OFFICE TO BE OPEN FIVE DAYS A
WEEK, HOWEVER, SHOULD THE NEED ARISE
I WILL OFFER DRIVER LICENSE SERVICES
FULL TIME.
I am very proud of what the Tax Collector's Of-
fice has accomplished. This could not have been
possible without a very hard working dedicated
staff. I appreciate them very much. As you can
see, the Tax Collector's Office provides SERVICE
for and is accountable to all the above agencies.
This is a tremendous responsibility which requires
knowledge and understanding of the office.
I AM THE ONLY CANDIDATE THAT HAS
WORKED IN EVERY POSITION IN THE TAX
COLLECTOR'S OFFICE. DUE TO MY RESPON-
SIBILITIES IN THE OFFICE, I MAY NOT GET
TO VISIT WITH EACH OF YOU. I WOULD LIKE
TO ASK FOR YOUR VOTE AND SUPPORT AU-
GUST 26, IF RE-ELECTED I WILL CONTINUE
TO WORK FOR EFFICIENT TIMELY SERVICE
FOR ALL THE PEOPLE OF CALHOUN COUNTY.

Local student's art

to be displayed at

Gadsden Arts Center
The public is cordially invited to
visit the Gadsden Arts Center, on the
square in historic downtown Quincy,
to view the drawings of nine-year-old
Chasen Roulhac, a student at Blountstown
Elementary School. His works will be on
display in the Children's Bates Gallery,
upstairs at the center. Chasen is the son of
Meagan Roulhac of Blountstown and the
grandson of Kathy and Sammy Johnson of
Chattahoochee.
Chasen's collection is entitled "I Feel
Like Drawing" and includes recent pieces
from this budding artist, as well as those
from three and four years ago when he was
just beginning.
"I Feel Like Drawing" encourages
anyone to put his/her feelings on paper,
cardboard or whatever medium preferred.
Drawing contributes to improved hand-eye
coordination and a more solid command of
pen and pencil. With Chasen's artwork, the
desire to draw is spontaneous and not forced
- hence the title, "I Feel Like Drawing."
Chasen's drawings will be on display
from June 28 to July 18.
The Gadsden Arts Center in Quincy, is
open Tuesday through Saturday from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m, (ET), and Sunday from 1

Take Up the Sword
of the Spirit
Text: Ephesians 6:10-18
Robert J. Morgan tells-about
an evangelist visiting the home of
a woman who was praying for her
"infidel" husband. She begged for
a Bible, which he gave her.
Her husband found the Bible,
snatched it up, strode to the wood-
pile, chopped it in two with an ax,
and threw half of it into the wood-
shed. He marched back into the
house and threw the other half at
his wife.
One day he went to the wood-
shed to get away from his wife. Sit-
ting there bored; he picked up the
discarded half of the Bible to read.
He became engrossed with the
story of the Prodigal Son in Luke
15. However, the end of the story
had been chopped off and was in
his wife's possession.
He sneaked into the house
looking for her half of the Bible. He
finally gave in and asked her for it.
He read the story again and again
repenting of his sins and receiving
Christ as Savior.
The Word of God, the Bible is
often referred to as a sword. He-
brews 4:12 says it is "...sharper
than any two edged sword, pierc-
ing even to the dividing asunder of
soul and spirit, and of the joints and
marrow... (KJV)." The Holy Spirit
makes the words of God recorded
in scripture come alive. The Word
can pierce the toughest heart with
conviction and change a life for-
ever.
If you are going to overcome
temptation, you must take the only
offensive weapon that you have,
which is the Word of God. Asoldier
would not think of going into bat-
tle with nothing to fight-with. Any
fighter knows that the best defense
is a good offense. How did Jesus
respond to temptation? He quoted
scripture. How will you overcome?
Focus on the scripture and not the
temptation.

We can't drill our way


out of the energy crisis


At gas stations
across Florida,
the consequences
of our addiction
to foreign oil
are becoming

are being strained

of skyrocketing
gas prices. Local

diesel. Small
businesses are
feeling the gas price pinch also,
which has resulted in higher
business costs and less money
in the pockets of hardworking
Floridians.
Gas prices have soared in
recent months due to many factors,
including the falling value of the
U.S. dollar, a drastic boom in
oil consumption by developing
nations like China and India,
and a tighter supply of oil. Gas
prices have soared in recent years,
however, because the U.S. has
failed to develop a balanced,
forward thinking approach to our
energy needs.
Unfortunately, no silver bullet
solution will immediately lower
gas prices, and those who think
t drilling directly off Florida's coast
is the answer may not have all
the facts. History has shown that
drilling alone will solve neither our
short term nor our long term energy
problems. Since 2000, drilling has
64 increased dramatically-climbing
about 66 percent-while gas prices
also have increased, from $1.47 per
gallon in 2001 to the current price
ot o. er $4 per gallon.

I ilso support opening up areas
it [he Arctic National Wildlife
Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska to
drilling. According to the U.S.
Geological Survey, ANWR could
hold between 5.7 and 16 billion
hinds of oil.
However, proponents of drilling
nust realize that oil deep in the
grT:'u ad has no direct link to today's
gas prices. While we have seen a
significant increase in domestic
drilling in the past few years, it
.. III rake about 10 years for this oil
jnd gas to reach the market. Also,
the long term effects of increased
domestic drilling are dubious.


ai
ar


According to
a recent study
by the Energy
S Department,
additional oil
production
resulting from
the opening of
.: ANWR would
be only a small
OYD portion of
OYD Ttotal world oil
O RT production and
O RT would likely only
n Allen Boyd bring oil prices
down by 75 cents
a barrel, which
is currently at a staggering $131
a barrel.
The bottom line: we cannot drill
our way out of the energy crisis.
We must develop a long term plan
that makes us less dependent upon
foreign nations for our energy
needs.
This Congress is making
some inroads in this effort by
implementing short term solutions
to bring down gas prices and by
working towards a long term
strategy to make our nation energy
independent. For example, in May,
I voted to temporarily suspend the
filling of the Strategic Petroleum
Reserve (SPR), the nation's
emergency supply of crude oil.
The SPR is already at 97 percent
capacity. Experts have concluded
that by stopping ship.m.ents to the
reserve we can add 70,000 barrels
of oil a day back into the market,
which is estimated to reduce gas
prices from 5 to 24 cents a gallon.
Also, my fellow Blue Dogs and I
have outlined key energy principles
that offer a comprehensive
approach to our nation's long term
energy policy. The principles focus
on domestic energy production,
renewable energy sources, and
technology develop.m.ent. These
principles recognize that, when it
comes to our energy policy, we
must look at all the pieces of the
puzzle.
As we work to combat high gas
prices and establish a long term
energy plan, we also must recognize
the role of the private sector in
this effort. Our energy crisis is
a supply and demand problem.
While the government can provide
incentives for the private sector
to develop alternative energy and
energy efficient products, the
private sector, not the government,
ultimately will bring stability to
the market. Also, we must work
to improve our economic outlook.
Oil is priced in U.S. dollars, and
as the price of the dollar increases
in value, the cost of oil will go
down.
In the end, there are many
challenges and opportunities before
us when it comes to our energy
needs. The answers may seem
overwhelming, but we have the
tools to regain control of our energy
future if we utilize our greatest
resource: the innovative spirit of
the American people. The energy
crisis requires all of us working
together toward a comprehensive
plan that addresses our immediate
energy problems and ensures
that our energy needs are met for
generations to come.

Page 12 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JUNE 25, 2008


Local woman writes about family's fears & challenges

coping with the aftermath of recent China earthquake


Monday, May 19 Most of
the students woke up early during
the time on the field. I guess they
wanted to get a head start at the
water line, or start making fire to
cook their breakfast. We always
lay in "bed" as long as Matthew
was sleeping, and enjoyed the
quiet time. This morning I was
snoozing off and on a bit, trying
to make the best use of the calm
quietness. Suddenly (around
7:00) we heard someone outside
yelling, "Wai jiao zai nar?!"
(Where are the foreign teachers?)
It was the Wenchuan police, and
he had trouble finding us since
we had switched tents. Chad
recognized the voice from the day
before and figured that they had
come again to try to get us out. The
man was frantic, saying that we'd
go on the helicopter, but we had
only five minutes!!! We quickly
grabbed sleeping Matthew and


our bags and ran out. What a way
to wake up! We stopped at our
apartment to get our suitcases.
Chad said, "I saw the size of the
helicopter yesterday, and I think
that we could take two suitcases
on there. I'm gonna try anyway."
So we loaded up (with Vicki and
Claude) and made our way back
to the landing pad. Again we
waited for the helicopter to land.
I began talking to some local farm
people that had gathered there to
watch. They said their home had
been destroyed, but they were
OK saying this with a smile. I
was humbled by their acceptance
of the situation when they lost so
much more than we did. Another
lady there was hauling compost
into her garden for her, life just
kept going and things needed to
be done.
Soon a military helicopter
landed and the people there


In this second installment of her
travel journal, Jenny Yoder Gra-
ber of Blountstown shares the
experiences she, her husband,
Chad, and their young son had
during last month's disaster in
China. The family will be re-
turning to Blountstown for a
visit soon.
told us to rush out and get on.
The blades were still going and
kicking up such dust! I was pretty
nervous about running up in that
condition... but they were pushing
us forward. As we were waiting
there in that dust and noise, the
door of the helicopter opened up
and several soldiers jumped out.
They yelled at us, "Get back,
away from the helicopter!" So,
again we were pushed, frantically,
to where we had originally been.
An Army general stepped off
and began talking to our school
leader about us, and then he


said, "They can't ride on this
helicopter this is only for the
military. They'll have to wait for
a civilian helicopter." We were
told to wait out by the road. We
hauled all our things over to
the gate and sat down to wait
again. I was about to crumble
emotionally. It was too much rush
and wait panic and anxiety. For
the first time in a while, I cried. I
sat there in the dirt, with Chinese
people standing around watching.
Matthew was also crying because
Daddy had told him that we
were going to ride on that green
helicopter (when it landed) and
now he wasn't going to get to.
My hands were shaking and I was
saying, "God, I just can't do this
any more."
We had a few snacks (since
we hadn't had any breakfast) and
waited. All of a sudden the general
walked up to us and whispered,


"Nimen gen. women yiqi qu!"
(You and we will go together.) I
still don't know what happened -
if someone pulled some strings,
or if he just felt sorry for us. We
didn't ask any questions, just
jumped up and quickly got on the
helicopter before they changed
their minds. It was rather large,
so there was room for us all to sit
on the bench seat along the length
of the.helicopter. The general said
that they were flying to Mian
Yang, and from there we'd get
a bus or something to Chengdu.
We were fine with wherever. The
helicopter flew along the road,
for the most part, so we were
familiar with where we were. It
was the first time we had a chance
to see other places that were hit
by the earthquake. There was
LuoBoZhai the rumor had been
true: flattened. Maoxian not too

PUTTING OUR KIDS FIRST























I am Jed Hiers and I am asking for your support to be
elected Liberty County School Board Member for District 2.
I am married to Donna Hiers, who works at W.R. To-
lar School, and we have three children, Jared (17), Mor-
gan (12), and Megan (12), who are in the Liberty County
School System.
I graduated from Florida State University in 1983 with a
Bachelors Degree in Finance and Accounting, and I com-
pleted the Florida Banking and Economics program at the
University of Florida in 1992.
Over the past 23 years that I have lived in Liberty Coun-
ty, I have served on different School & County committees
and I have been very active in the community, such as
serving as a Board Member for the Liberty County Cham-
ber of Commerce.
Most of you know me as the past President of C&L
Bank/The Bank from 1985-2003. Presently, I work for R &
S Excavation, Inc. My 23 years of banking, bookkeeping,
and business experience, as well as my familiarity with
our school and county finances, will help me analyze and
make the appropriate decisions as a School Board Mem-
ber.
Reduced funding due to recent budget cuts will force
closer monitoring of educational dollars, but I do not want
our kids to get a lesser education due to this restructur-
ing.
I promise, if elected, to do my best so that the children
of Liberty County do not suffer through these budget cuts,
and to work towards achieving a strong, improved school
system.
Your vote and support would be greatly appreciated.

Ribbon-cutting ceremony held for new dental office


The Calhoun Chamber of
Commerce held a ribbon-cutting
ceremony for the new dental
offices of Dr. Myron Schrock
Friday.
The newly-finished building,
located at 17470 North Main
Street, boasts 3,300 square feet
and has nine examine rooms.


While Dr. Schrock admits
that for now, the new structure
seems a little too big, he points
out the extra exam rooms ensure
that they can see patients more
efficiently. He said the clean-up
and set-up time is minimized,
which means "we can get people
in a little quicker."
He has full-
time staff of five
and two part-time
employees. He
says he may add
a second full time
dental hygienist in
the future.
One of the exam
rooms is designed
to accommodate
handicapped
Patients with space
for a wheelchair.
A 1993 graduate


of the University of Florida
College of Dentistry, Dr. Schrock
worked with North Florida


Medical Center in Wewahitchka
for four years. In 1997, he began
working with Dr. Raymond Layne
and continued there until moving
into his own offices on May 5.
"We've got a great staff and


everybody's working hard," he
said.
The office is open Monday
through Wednesday from 8 5
and Fridays from 8- 4.
They are closed Thursdays.

Calhoun AAA All-Stars win district title


The Calhoun County AAA
All-Star team has done a greatjob
this in tournament. They opened
the AAA District Tournament on
Friday night with Malone where
Calhoun County came away the
winner with a score of 26-0. On
Saturday night they played the
Havana AAA team, coming away
with a win of 26-1. Monday
night they faced a very good
Liberty County AAA All-Star
team where they also walked
away the winner with a score
of 14-1. The Calhoun County
AAA came out and scored a total
number of 19 runs against Quincy
on Tuesday night. They held the
Quincy AAA to one run.
The 19-1 win set the table to
face the Liberty County AAAAll-
Stars again on Wednesday night
for the first of two possible games


to determine the championship.
Liberty County would have
to beat the Calhoun County
team twice because Calhoun
County was going into this game
undefeated. After a very intense
game against a very worthy
Liberty County AAA team, the
Calhoun County AAA prevailed
with a 4-2 win. Both teams were
ready for this battle, and a battle
it was. It was a 0-0 game after 2
1/2 innings. Liberty County took
a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the
3rd. Calhoun County answered
by scoring 3 runs in the top of the
4th inning. Liberty scored again
in the bottom of the 4th inning
making the score 3-2 Calhoun.
Nothing changed until the sixth
inning where Calhoun tacked
on 1 more run, making the final
score 4-2.


After all was said and done the
Calhoun County AAA All-Stars
swept the tournament. They won
5 games, accumulating 89 total
runs scored and allowing our
opponents to score only 5 runs
throughout the tournament.
Now that they are through
with the district tournament, they
are looking forward to the AAA
Dixie Youth State Tournament.
Opening ceremonies will take
place Friday, July 4 in East
Lakeland at Cypress Gardens.
We will play our first game at 2
p.m. (CT) against the District 7
champion on Saturday, July 5.
The Calhoun County AA
team is traveling to Paxton on
Friday, June 27 for their opening
ceremonies and will face South
Lake at 3 p.m. (CT) on Saturday,
June 28.

Tallahassee Memorial Hospital receives Chest Pain Center accreditation


TALLAHASSEE -
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
(TMH) has been notified by the
Society for Chest Pain Centers
that it has received a three year
"Accreditation with PCI" as a
result of a site visit by the its
Accreditation Review Committee
May 12, 2008. The accreditation
expires August 23, 2011.
The designation, "Chest
Pain Center Accreditation with
PCI" (Percutaneous Coronary
Intervention) is a new designation
given by the Society of Chest
Pain Centers to facilities who
use PCI as one of their primary
intervention strategies for chest
pain. PCI is commonly known
as coronary angioplasty or simply
angioplasty, and is a therapeutic
procedure to treat the stenotic
(narrowed) coronary arteries of
the heart found in coronary heart
disease.
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
received its initial accreditation
from the Society of Chest Pain
Centers in 2005. According to
Catherine Heimbecher, Service
Line Administrator for the
Tallahassee Memorial Heart and
Vascular Center this accreditation
is due to a collaborative effort.
"The Accreditation as a Chest
Pain Center with PCI designation
is an affirmation of the great
teamwork not only between
TMH's Emergency Center,
Heart and Vascular Center and
cardiology specialists, but also
with our local and regional
Emergency Medical Service
providers. The synchronization
between these groups has greatly
improved care for heart attack
patients in our region" says
Heimbecher.
Heart attacks are the leading
cause of death in the United
States, with 600,000 dying
annually of heart disease. More
than five million Americans visit
hospitals each year with chest
pain.
The Chest Pain Center at
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
has demonstrated its expertise
and commitment to quality patient
care by meeting or exceeding a
wide set of stringent criteria and
completing on-site evaluations by
a review team from the Society of
Chest Pain Centers. Key areas in
which a Chest Pain Center must
demonstrate expertise include:
Integrating the emergency
department with the local
emergency medical system
Assessing, diagnosing, and
treating patients quickly
Effectively treating patients
with low risk for acute coronary
syndrome and no assignable
cause for their symptoms
Continually seeking
to improve processes and
procedures
Ensuring Chest Pain Center
personnel competency and
training
Maintaining organizational
structure and commitment
Having a functional design
that promotes optimal patient


Supporting community
outreach programs that educate
the public to promptly seek
medical care if they display

Sharks on Good housekeeping or
s, wire, and sanitation is basic factor in rodent
dications of control. Eliminating food, water,
and harborage for rats and mice
ly use the can reduce rodent populations
ys between rapidly. To implement sanitation
practices:
Clean up garbage and
S" .. rubbish.
Properly store garbage, pet
food and bird seed.
Remove harborages such
as piles of rubbish, junk and
protected enclosures.
Pick fruits and vegetables
when ripe so rodents will not feed
on them.
Birds of prey, hawks and owls
feed on large numbers of rodents
and are exceptional rat killers.
Snakes such as rat snakes, king
snakes, pine snakes and black
racers eat numerous rodents
and are important in controlling
rodent populations. Do not kill
non-poisonous snakes.
Trapping is an underrated


method of controlling rodents.
Traps can be used to eliminate
rats where poison baits would be
dangerous.
It is important to place traps
where the rats are. Rats and mice
have different behavior around
new objects. Rats are cautious,
and it may be a week before they
approach a trap. Mice are curious
and will normally approach traps
the first night. If you don't catch a
mouse in the first few nights, the
trap is in the wrong location. To
help rats overcome trap shyness,
place traps unset, in place, for
several days. This allows rats to
overcome shyness and results in
better catches.
Traps are effective usually
when dealing with small numbers
of rats or mice. When rats are
plentiful or where unsanitary
conditions exist with harborage,
poisoned baits are an effective
tool to use with trapping.
Poison baits are readily
available. Whenever arodenticide
is used, safety must be the first
consideration. Poison baits
must be placed where they are
inaccessible to children, pets,
livestock and wildlife or in special
bait stations. Bait stations should
always be placed near where rats
live and breed or along travel
routes.
When you control your rats,
encourage your neighbor to
control their rats at the same
time. The greater the area that is
controlled, the more effective the
results will be and the longer it
will take new rats to migrate back
to your property.

county. Fees are capped at $300 per county not to exceed $900 for
farmers with interest in multiple counties. Losses must be greater
than 50 percent of expected production and coverage must have been
purchased 30 days prior to the coverage period.

Week of July 2to July 8
ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, keep the temper in check
when someone at work decides
to get in your face. It's best if
you are the bigger person and
walk away rather than risk con-
frontation.
TAURUS -Apr 21/May 21
Taurus, throw caution to the
wind and do something you
never imagined you would do.
The thrill of it will keep you
soaring for days to come.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Gemini, there are two sides to
every story and it's not your
place to judge before you hear
them both. Better yet, stay out of
it altogether and remain neutral.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Take this week to do some fam-
ily bonding, Cancer. Meet up
with a sibling, or visit with your
parents. It'll do a world of good
to be surrounded by those who
love you.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
You have been masking your
feelings, Leo, so others think
there's nothing wrong. Really

VIRGO-Aug 24/Sept 22
You're in a good place this week, Vir-
go. Your good mood is infectious and
others naturally gravitate toward you,
which can be a mixed blessing. Keep
Wednesday open for a surprise.
LIBRA- Sept 23/Oct 23
Hold your tongue, Libra. Now is not
the time to voice an opinion on some-
thing you know little about. Financial
endeavors have to be put on hold for
the moment.

Scorpio, despite good intentions, you
seem to land in trouble early on this
week. No amount of back-pedaling
will get you out of the situation just
wait it out.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Your goal to set things right with
someone is met with good reception,
Sagittarius. That will only bolster your
confidence even more. Moving for-
ward, keep the friendship strong.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20

you to have a new take on a situation
with a family member. Things don't


seem as dire as they once did. Money is-
sues have you nervous.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Aquarius, your career is solid, so now is
the time to give thought to advancement
possibilities. It's easy to get stuck in a
comfort zone otherwise.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
Social opportunities abound, Pisces. Your
biggest decision will be what parties and
events to attend. Do leave some room for
R&R, though.

Paae 24 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JUNE 25, 2008


bad. Here and there a small village that was destroyed, but
then others in the next valley that were fine. We circled
around Bei Chuan several times for them to take pictures
and observe. It really was destroyed! It was a neat, but
very sad way to leave the mountains flying overhead
and seeing what was left of some of the places that we
loved. I wanted to savor the moment and fully say good-
bye..... but my emotions were shot and instead I just felt
dull, tired, and 'flat'.
We soon landed in Mian Yang and were surprised to
see a beautiful van waiting there for us on the runway.
The Army had called ahead and arranged for a transport
to take us all the way to Chengdu. What a thoughtful
touch! We drove the two hours to Chengdu, where we
were greeted by our dear friends here. We spent the
afternoon showering, resting, and calling our family for
the first time. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to hear
your loved ones' voices after an event like this! We had
dinner with many friends, and then headed of for bed
(a real one, this time!) It worked out so well that some
friends were traveling at the time and told us to use their
empty house!
It took Matthew a while to settle down in a new place,
but he finally got to sleep. We were so tired and crashed
into bed. How wonderful to have a soft bed and a pillow!
We were awakened 30 min. later by a friend


telling us that he'd heard there might be a big
tremor that night and that many people were
going outside to sleep. We should do whatever
we felt was best. Chad came back to the bed
and we lay there discussing the situation. I felt
so confused in my tired mind, we had left
the place where the earthquake was: This was.
supposed to be a safe place. How could there
be tremors here?! Neither one of us felt a push
to get out whether it was from God or just
fatigue. I said, "I just got into a real bed, and
I don't want to go sleep on the hard ground
again. I don't care if the building falls down on
me!" But to be wise, we packed a bag and slept
in our clothes. Nothing ever came of the rumor,
and we slept well.
Since then- We began processing everything
and ended up with a lot more questions than
answers: What should we do now that we are
here in Chengdu? Should we go home early or
stay here and try to help? What can we do to
help? Why were we rescued when there are so
many others who have it worse than we did?
Will we ever get to go back to Wenchuan? In
the first few days after we were here, we spent
many hours on the phone people calling from
everywhere, wanting to hear our voice and
going through e-mail. We had so many letters
in our inbox, and we were able to begin piecing
together what must have been happening in the
lives of our family and co-workers here while






the three states and the Corps to develop a
more successful, long term water management
solution that recognizes the needs of all the
users along the ACF system."
Similar to the legislation, Nelson and Boyd
also are circulating a letter amongst the members
of the Florida Congressional Delegation that
asks the Corps to enter into a contract with the
NRC to complete the comprehensive study of
water management in the ACF river basin.
Both the legislation and the letter call for the
NRC study to include:
Scientific information on the Apalachicola
River and Bay and the impact of freshwater
flow on the ecology of the river and the bay.
*An assessment ofwater availability, supply
options, demand-management alternatives, and
socioeconomic factors that influence uses in the
.ACF River System.
Recommendations for an approach to
determine water limits that recognize the needs
of all users along the ACF River System.
*Suggestionsfor any additional measures to
address the long term watershed management
needs of the ACF River System.

we were 'camping in Wenchuan'. We felt overwhelmed
with love and care.
There were more tremors which shook me up again.
I dealt with (am still dealing with) a lot of fear in letting
Chad leave me alone in the. house for a bit. I formed my
mind's thoughts and plans around "if' there was another
big tremor, would this be a good place to be/ what would
I do with Matthew / should I run down the ten flights of
stairs to get out of the building? God is working in my
heart so much in taking away fear but it is also just a
conscious effort on my part to trust and not be afraid.
We had an OB check-up in the days following our
arrival. We were so happy to hear that the baby's heartbeat
was strong and the Dr. didn't notice anything wrong.
The students were able to begin leaving the college about
3 days after we left. Their bus ride was about 25 hours
long, since they had to use roads that were open and go
the long route! They all ended up in Chengdu and Chad
received the news on Friday that they were beginning to
arrive at two local campuses both close to where we
were! He went over and was able to meet them all as they
drove in. He got to see many of his students, and a few


came to 'our' house for showers and some food before
getting on a bus again to go to their home-towns. It was
a busy few days for us, but so healing as we got to have
some closure on saying good-bye.
Chad began volunteering full-time with an organization
offering relief and aid to earthquake victims. His talents
are being used there, and it's fulfilling to him to be able
to help. I began going to the hospital to visit patients -
mostly earthquake victims. Some days are better than
others, and I can't always communicate a lot (many of
the people affected by the earthquake were rural people
who often speak the local dialect), but I pray that God
will communicate to their hearts my love and concern
for them.
We have felt overwhelmed by the outpouring of love
and concern for us over this time. I pray that no one else
needs to go through an experience like.this but for
everyone, I pray that they can feel the love and support
of so many people around the world, as we did.
We plan to return to the States on July 1, 2008, one
month earlier than our original date. It will be difficult
to leave this place that we love, but we are very ready
to be with our family and friends again! We are grateful
for the opportunity to experience life in China, including
-this extreme circumstance which bonded us to so many
Chinese people.
