Man charged

with stealing

nearly $14,000

in scrap metal
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
It was time to sell.
A Calhoun County man
who had been collecting scrap
metal for 30 years was looking
forward to a payday, and with
the prices now higher than
ever this summer, he was
ready to send it to a recycler.
When he was approached by
Shannon Kent, 32, of Jackson
County who offered to pay
$50,000 to
haul it off
and resell
it himself,s.
the owner
agreed
.with one
stipulation:'
athirdparty
SHANNON KENT would be
on hand to
monitor the-amount Kent
picked up atall times.
Kent removed an estimated
199,000 pounds of scrap metal
between June 14 and 19,
which was valued at $13,930,
according to the Calhoun,
County Sheriff's Office.
But the man who owned the
.property only got $1,700.
Kent made his first pickup
fromthe S.R. 73 siteonJune .12,
at which time he removed four
loads totalling approximately
29,400 pounds.
On June 13, Kent returned
and hauled off six loads of
around 52,000 pounds. The
agreed price was seven cents a
pound, which left him owing

Three arrested in 4-wheeler thefts from camp in Orange


by Teresa Eubanks, JournalEditor
Three four-Wheelers stolen from a
camp in Orange have been recovered
and returned to their owners following
an investigation by the Liberty County
Sheriff's Department, aided by a tip
from Calhoun County Sheriff's Office
Investigator Michael Bryant.
The ATVs were taken from SW
Bear Street on June 14. Two were
described as red Yamaha 350 Grizzly
four-wheelers valued at $5,000 each.
The third vehicle, said to be worth
about $1,000, was a green Bear Tracker
250.
About six weeks after the vehicles
disappeared, a Bristol man contacted


the sheriff's office when he attempted
to get a tag for the ATV he'd traded his
truck for and learned it was reported
stolen. He said that he got the four-
wheeler from Thomas Miller, 27, of
Blountstown.
When Swier contacted Bryant in
Calhoun County about Miller, Bryant
recalled a phone conversation he
had some time earlier with a Eufala,
Alabama man who said someone he
identified as Joseph Starling, 24, of
Altha had been bragging about stealing
three four-wheelers from a camp in
Florida. Starling had reportedly left
one of the ATVs at his mother-in-law's

home in Eufala.
Swier then went to talk
with Miller at his Blountstown
residence. Miller said he bought
his four-wheeler from a man in
Jackson County in early June.
When Starling's name came up,
Miller admitted they were friends
and said Starling had just returned
to the area.
At that point, Alabama
authorities were alerted and a
deputy was sent to the Eufala
home where they found one of
the stolen red Yamaha 350s and*
impounded it.
On Aug. 8, Miller contacted
Swier to say he wanted "to tell
the truth" about the ATVs.
Miller said that he, Starling and
a third man, identified as Timothy
Champion, 25, of Blountstown
stole the four-wheelers in June. He
told Swier they parked Starling's
van at the intersection of Hwy.
379 and State Road 12 around
midnight, entered the Orange
community on foot, found the


$6,698 after two days. He gave the owner $1,700
that day.
On June 14, the property owner was out of
town. When the friend who had been on hand
earlier to monitor the loading of the scrap metal
stopped in to check on the house,-he found Kent
there in violation of their agreement, loading up
more material to recycle. That day, he took about
6,000 pounds.
Kent returned on June 16 and hauled away six
loads, estimated at 52,000 pounds. He took four
loads totaling 30,000 pounds on June 17. When
he returned June 18, he took six loads said to
weigh in at 50,000 pounds. He hauled off another
six loads, this time said to be 61,000 pounds, on
June 19. That was the last time he was seen by
the property owner.

County Sheriff's Department.


four-wheelers and pushed them
from the site.
He said they loaded one of the
ATVs in the van and stashed the
other two in the woods before
returning a short while later with
a trailer to haul them to Calhoun
County.
He said he kept one of the
Grizzly 350s, Starling took the
other and Champion kept the
smaller Bear Tracker.


He then admitted to trading
the ATV for a truck and said
Starling hid the other Grizzly 350
in Eufala. Starling and Champion
took the Bear Tracker to Altha,
where they traded it for "some
old cars."
Deputies tracked down the
stolen ATV in Altha at a Glory
Road residence.
Miller, Starling and Champion
were all charged with grand theft.


The men had agreed that Kent would pay up at the
end of the job, after he sold the materials to Whitfield
Recycling in Bristol. Not only did he disappear
after failing to pay the owner of the metal, he failed
to return equipment borrowed from Whitfield's to
collect the loads. And although agreeing to only sell
the scrap to the Bristol company in exchange for
using their equipment, investigators learned Kent
sold most of the material to other area recyclers.
Kent was charged with grand theft and taken into
custody Aug. 11.
Investigator Michael Bryant said that since 1993,
Kent has been arrested 14 times on various charges.
including dealing in stolen property, grand theft
and stopping payment with intent to defraud. He
served two sentences with the Florida Department
of Corrections.

Quincy company
TALLAHASSEE -Attorney General Bill McCollum
filed a lawsuit last week against Quincy company
AdSurfDaily accusing the company and its owners of
operating a huge pyramid scheme.
The Attorney General's lawsuit is seeking civil damages
for the victims and an injunction against the company, its
president, Andy Bowdoin Jr., and its employees to prohibit
them from engaging in future deceptive marketing. The
lawsuit comes on the heels of a raid conducted by the
U.S. Secret Service on the company's headquarters. The
federal authorities also froze $53 million in bank accounts
held by the company.
The lawsuit filed by the Attorney General alleges that
AdSurfDaily also known as ASD operated a pyramid
scheme, a multilevel marketing operation which depends
on new investments to keep the scheme running. The
lawsuit claims there were insufficient funds from any


sued for massive
legitimate enterprise to support the profits ASD promised
to pay. Instead, ASD depended upon new victims to
turn over cash in order to make promised payments
to those who had earlier given money. The Attorney
General believes many of the victims of AdSurfDaily
were Floridians who were scammed into handing over
thousands of dollars to Bowdoin with promises of big
profits that were rarely, if ever, provided.
Over the last several months, ASD hosted large
conventions in Miami and Tampa where attendees
were encouraged to pay thousands of dollars for
internet advertising that would allegedly bring them
huge paybacks. Consumers were allegedly promised
that they would make as much as 150 percent on their
investments.
According to the Attorney General's investigators,
the company made approximately $100 million from the


pyramid scheme
Miami and Tampa conventions. The Attorney General's
Economic Crimes Division has been actively investigating
this company since late July.
According to the lawsuit, the pyramid scheme promoted
by ASD is a violation of Section 849.091, Florida Statutes,
and a per se violation of the Florida Deceptive and
Unfair Trade Practices Act found in Part II of Chapter
501, Florida Statutes. The Attorney General seeks actual
damages for consumers as well as civil penalties. The
lawsuit is not connected with the criminal investigation
being conducted by federal authorities.
A copy of the civil lawsuit is available here. Consumers
with complaints or questions about the company may
call the Attorney General's fraud hotline or may file a
complaint online at: http://myfloridalegal.com. The toll

Tuesday crash
Five people, including three kids who
were not wearing seatbelts, had minor
injuries after a 1996 Buick, driven by
Lynette Williams, 42, of Blountstown
hit a patch of water and ran off State
Road 20 Tuesday. The right side of
the car hit three trees before coming to
rest. The 3:34 p.m. accident happened
approximately six miles east of Bristol
during a rainstorm and left the car -
totaled. Front seat passenger Carl
Williams, 48, later went to the ER to be
examined after Williams and the three
children, including two 1 0-year-olds and
an 11-year-old, were transported by
ambulance to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital.

Clarksville

man arrested

for stealing,

selling corn
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The discovery of several
pallets of corn stolen from a
Blountstown mill and offered for
sale at a Gulf County store led to
the arrest of William Leon Neal
II, 41, of Clarksville on grand
theft charges last week.
Neal is charged with taking
400 pounds of corn. He enlisted
the help. of two other men to
repackage it in plain white bags
and then deliver it to a store just
south of Wewahitchka on four
different occasions, according to
a report from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office. The deliveries
were made in Neal's personal
truck.
The theft was discovered
when an employee of Southland
Milling Company, owned by John
Schmarje, noticed the corn being
sold in a store in the DalKeith
community on State Road 71.
When the employee told the
store owner the corn had been
stolen, the store owner reacted
by removing the bags and tossing
them over a privacy fence. Two
other people at the scene helped
him move the bags. The store
owner told the man to leave. The
mill employee then called 911,
summoning a deputy who arrived
in time to seize 38 bags of corn.
According to the arrest
report, Neal, who also worked
at Southland, got a relative and
a co-worker to help him load
two pallets that held 50 pounds
of corn each time. Both men
accompanied him to the Gulf
County store and helped unload
the stolen corn. One of those men'
stated that Neal paid him $100
after one trip and indicated they
could continue to "make some
side money."
On his last delivery to DalKeith
in late June or early July, Neal
was paid $600 in cash for 100
bags of corn.
Neal was taken into custody
Aug. 8.

Analysts say a weak economy is causing less energy
use, resulting in falling oil prices. Yeah. Basically, the
worse the economy, the lower the oil prices. Which
means if Bush could serve one more term, oil would
be free. -JAY LENO

The big presidential debates coming up. Are we still
excited about that? Barack Obama wants to debate
about foreign policy, and John McCain wants to
debate about the big band era. DAVID LETTERMAN

While after vigorously denying reports of his
extramarital affair, and calling the story ridiculous,
untrue and tabloid trash, John Edwards today
admitted he had an affair. And the National Enquirer
was the only publication writing about it, the National
Enquirer was the first to break it, turns out it was true.
You know what this means? Elvis is alive! Bigfoot is
real! Aliens are here! It's all true! - JAY LENO

China has announced that during the Olympics,
protesters will be allowed to assemble in designated
protest areas. Or, as they're commonly called in
China, jails. CONAN O'BRIEN

There has been a lot of talk about the air quality
in China. Here's how bad it is: They say that if
Snoop Dogg were to roll down the windows of his
limo in Beijing, smoke would actually pour into the
limousine. JIMMY KIMMEL

Barack Obama now says he is open to offshore oil
drilling. So, apparently, when he promised change,
he was talking about his mind. I guess that's what
that was. JAY LENO

Hey, you see John McCain was at the country's
biggest motorcycle rally. He was in Sturgis, South
Dakota. You know, where all the Harley guys
go? McCain showed up in a customized Rascal
scooter. JAY LENO

The moderators were announced for the upcoming
presidential debates. Apparently, Barack Obama
insisted on someone who asks even-handed,
probing questions, while John McCain insisted on
someone who will talk into his good ear.
CONAN O'BRIEN

They say John McCain is 71, but people are saying
he may be older. No one knows for sure because his
birth certificate was destroyed when the Wagon Train
was attacked. DAVID LETTERMAN

Barack Obama has agreed to debate John McCain
three times this fall. Both candidates have conditions.
Obama wants the debates to be held on college
campuses. McCain wants them to be held before
7:00 p.m. CONAN O'BRIEN

President Bush is on the hunt for a new home. He
just found out he and Laura are going to have to
move out of the White House in a few months. His
massive plan of foreclosures and plummeting real
estate prices finally paid off. JIMMY KIMMEL

According to rumors, John McCain and Barack
Obama are both trying to get Angelina Jolie's
endorsement. John Edwards is just trying to get her
number. CRAIG FERGUSON

T. Boone Pickens for president



T. Boone Pickens for president


Millionaire Texas oilman T.
Boone Pickens has an energy plan 0O
for America. Pickens is spending his
own money on nation wide television
advertisements to explain his plan. Jerry Cox is a
John McCain's .energy plan is officerandwriterv
"Drill here, drill now" followed by background in
his criticism of Obama's energy plan foreign policy is
consisting primarily of McCain's \Okaloosa Count
sophomoric criticism of Obama's
comment about airing up our tires, a
comment which NASCAR and the American Automo-
bile Association support.
Even Paris Hilton espoused a better energy plan than
McCain in her put-down rebuttal to McCain's commer-
cial linking Obama with Hilton and Britney Spears. ,
Obama's energy plan is a bit thin also. Obama's for
offshore drilling now as long as it is in conjunction with
a broader plan of developing alternative energy sources,
but his broader plan needs some meat on its bones.
Pickens makes the point that America is now import-
ing 70% of the oil that we consume at a cost of $700
billion per year which goes to the Middle East. These
dollars are referred to as "petro dollars" or "sovereign
funds," and this money is used to buy American assets
like major buildings and pieces of America's crumbling
financial system. When an American financial company
needs a cash infusion of a few billion to ward off bank-
ruptcy, Middle East investors are happy to supply the
cash. The irony is that it's our cash spent on gasoline.
While I worry about buying gas for my truck, the
energy issue is far more serious than that. The energy
crisis is strategic national defense issue.
Worldwide energy consumption statistics are as-
tounding. Worldwide oil production peaked in 2005 and
is now a dwindling source of energy. While dwindling,
the demand for oil is increasing. In the near future,
China is predicted to have as many vehicles on the road
as does America. People in other nations want to drive
vehicles as much as Americans. They want gas for their
car just as we do.
According to Pickens, each day 85 million barrels
of oil are produced worldwide. America at about 4%
of the world's population consumes about 21 million
barrels per day or about 25% of total production. So,
4% of the world's population is consuming 25% of a
commodity that all 100% need. What does the other
96% of the world's population think about that? Not
very highly and that is why alternative energy sources


re
wi
d
u
y.


are a strategic national defense issue for
'S N America.
Pickens' energy plan incorporates
WN ER wind, solar, natural gas, coal and others
tired military sources like ethanol. The Pickens plan
th an extensive is a decade long effort to wean America
Domestic and from oil. Pickens is criticized because
es. He lives in he is a major dealer in natural gas. True,
/ but at least he has a plan, and for those
people who believe that the market will
provide all goods and services demand-
ed by the consumer, this is the market at work, and
Pickens has a right to make a profit.
But Pickens recognizes that he can't make his plan
work without government assistance. This is where
Pickens' plan will get derailed. If the government is
involved, you will hear shouts of all the "isms," social-
ism, communism...
The Not In My Back Yard (NIMBY) people will
be marching in the streets. There was NIMBY guest
column in my local paper today. This fellow is a re-
tired fighter pilot like me but complaining about aircraft
noise at the local Air Force Base. I have no sympathy
for anyone who buys a house near an airbase or airport
and then complains about the noise.
The irony of his complaint is that the Air Force,
part of the "government" that conservatives dislike so
much, supports about 70% of the local economy. If the
government ever moved out of this area, the local main
street would be filled with dust devils and tumbleweeds.
Don't bite the hand that is feeding you comes to mind.
In my view, solving America's energy crisis so that
we aren't selling our souls to the "company store" in
the Middle East will require some compromise of our
individual rights. That will stick in the craw of most
Americans, but the compromises are in the best inter-
est of the common good of the American people as a
whole.
For example, if wind power is a viable energy source
then windmills have to be constructed. The NIMBY
people will screech, but if a hundred windmills on a
beautiful shoreline will supply electrical power for the
surrounding region, then the local, state and federal
governments have to make it happen.
The energy crisis is a strategic issue for America
that transcends the capacity of the market to solve. If
Americans are unwilling to make the personal sacrifice
in land use and taxes that will make America energy
independent, then there might not be an America.

on August 26. Thank you for your support. YOU!


A after. becoming elected, my
staff and I have made some
much-needed changes to your
Elections Office to comply with
state and federal law and to en-
sure that each eligible voter in
Calhoun County is able to cast a
secret ballot legally, on time and
independently:

=> Using inmate labor, we knocked down a
few walls to expand the office to allow us to
house all of our elections equipment, supplies
and records in one location, a must for secu-
rity purposes. The expanded office area also
allows us to accommodate the public for early
voting and for open, visible election-night tabu-
lation. The expanded lobby area now allows us
to accommodate our citizens with physi-
cal disabilities.
> We've upgraded our Web
site (www.votecalhoun.com) to allow our citi-
zens to register to vote, change an address, or
request an absentee ballotonline. Voters can
also visit our Web site to check their registra-
tion status, view election results, and more.
=> The City of Blountstown and Town of
Altha have amended their charters to have
their elections at the same time as county elec-
tions, thereby saving their residents' tax dollars
for supplies and labor and allowing each town
to enjoy a larger voter turnout.
> We've started a voter education program
to go into the high schools to register more
students to vote than ever before. And, with
the knowledge that civic responsibility begins
at an early age, we've demonstrated the voting
equipment and held "mock elections" for pre-
school- and elementary-age children in our office.
=> We've given voter education workshops
and voting equipment demonstrations upon
request for local churches and other commu-
nity organizations and held voter registration
drives at community events.
=> AND MUCH MORE!

Being Liberty County)' Clerk of Court
for the past eight years has been the
most rewarding opportunity of my,
career As your clerk, I am proud to
say that Liberty County is financiall,
sound. Being Clerk of Court is more
than just a title to me. It is an honor
and responsibility that I have to the
community and the people that I live
with. As your Clerk of Court some of
the things that I plan to pursue for the
future are:


-Completion and utilization of the
Hosford-Telogia recreational complex

*Build a recreational complex for the
District 1 community

*Continue making Technological ad-
vancements that will allow you to ac-
cess, view and file your documents
online

*Online payments for water & garbage

*Actively seek state and federal grant
funding


When you go to vote for Liberty County Clerk of Court, please remember, from facilities finance
there is a difference, with Robert Hill as your Clerk you will continue to see results.

Courthouse

renovation

completed
from Douglas Smith, Office
of Court Administration for the
Second Judicial Circuit
BRISTOL Despite recent
fiscal challenges facing state and
local governments in Florida,
long awaited and planned
renovations of the 2nd floor of the
Liberty County courthouse are
now complete and operational.
Robert Hill, the Clerk of Liberty
County, served as the project
-administrator, in concert with
Chief Judge Charles Francis
and general oversight by the
Liberty County Board of County
Commissioners.
The renovations to the 3600
square foot second floor of the
Liberty County Courthouse are
numerous, including:
*Extensive courtroom updating
with improved ceiling-and lights,
millwork, enlarged litigation well
and judge's bench, renovated
public gallery, American with
Disabilities Act accommodations,
and a new sound system.
Renovated and remodeled
jury deliberation room, witness
room and State Attorney office.
Newv stairwell to meet fire
safety regulations.
New secure prisoner access
corridor from the jail to the
courtroom, Chief Judge Charles
Francis commends Clerk of
Circuit Court Robert Hill for
his leadership and hands on
coordination of construction with
the efficient use of prisoner labor
which resulted in a tremendous
savings to the citizens of Liberty
County. These renovations would
have cost approximately $576,000
using conventional contractual
resources, but with the utilization
of prisoner labor, Mr Hill has
expended only $184,000, saving
the taxpayers over $300,000.
Chief Judge Francis appreciated
the cooperation and patience
of Judges George Reynolds,
Ralph Smith and Ken Hosford
in keeping the courts operational
during the construction.
Calhoun Sheriff
participates in
safety effort
from the National Child ID Program
TALLAHASSEE, Florida-
Calhoun County Sheriff David
L. Tatum recently participated
in a state-wide effort to protect
children in Florida by providing
a child ID kit to more than 2,200
students in the Calhoun County
School District.
Sheriff Tatum joined efforts
with the American Football
Coach's Association and FBI's
National Child ID Program to en-
sure that parents and guardians in
Calhoun County were equipped
with the vital tools necessary to
help recover their child in the
event of an emergency. The
kit provides fingerprinting and
a DNA sample that parents can
complete and store in the home.


T TFh ehe difference is.

DANNY RYALS


Calhoun County


School Board District 1


29. Whatwillthe economic impactbe onthe residents,
towns, and businesses in Altha and Blountstown?
What will the impact be on the entire county? What
will it be on our school system? Have you done any
studies on these issues?
No studies have been done.

19. Any economic studies that you have done that
show the effects on the hundreds of families who,
for decades, have bought, built, or rented a home
close to the existing schools so that their children
could walk, ride a bike, or are easily dropped off at
school. What about the families who have children
at different schools?
No studies available.

23. Any copies of documents to or from the
Department of Transportation concerning the traffic
and safety issues of the new school. Who will pay
for the necessary improvements to CR 275 and the
feeder roads?
Documentation is inappropriate at the time, no
property has been secured at this date.

Note: On March 11, 2008, an architect was
hired to design a school to be built on an 80 acre
parcel of land on CR 275N that has not been
purchased.

24. Any copies of documents to or from the Sheriff's
office and emergency personnel regarding safety,
security, and response time to the new school.
See answer #23 Documentation is inappropriate at
the time, no property has been secured at this date.

25. Any copies of documents to or from the county
commissioners with input on consolidation.
None

18. What effect will the additional distance have on
the poorest children in the county? How many will
not be able to participate in sports or clubs for this
reason alone?
N/A Information not available

9. How many students at each school participate in
clubs and other extracurricular activities?


Whether you are for or against
consolidating Altha and Blountstown
high schools, important issues should be
addressed. On two different
occasions, I submitted a total of 78
questions to the Superintendent and
School Board. Following are a few
of the questions and their responses
numbered as they were when presented.

BLOUNTSTOWN HIGH SCHOOL
1. Number of students that participate in sports at BHS:
176 girls and boys, including cheerleading.
2. Number of students that participate in clubs at BHS: 314

ALTHA PUBLIC SCHOOL
1. Number of students that participate in sports at AHS:
132 girls and boys, including cheerleading.
2. Number of students that participate in clubs atAHS: 169

10. How many students will be left out of sports and
extracurricular activities by consolidation?
Unknown, possibly none.

Note: If you eliminate 50% of the teams, then you have
eliminated 50% of the opportunities for extracurricular
sports and clubs. You would also eliminate a valedictorian
and salutatorian and some local scholarships.

11. What studies have been done to show the effects and
results of these children who will be left out? What activities
do you think they will be involved in outside of supervised
school activities? How can eliminating opportunities be in
the best interest of our children?
N/A

39. You have to have your proposal to D.O.E. by July 1,
2008, yet you still don't have a site. How can you say you are
not in a rush? We already know you have studied it for over
thirty months but you still don't have a site. How can you
evaluate a site with so little time left?
We were not directed to obtain a site until after consolidation
was voted on. Proceeding otherwise -would have been
inappropriate.


30. Why didn't you ask the price of the land on each
parcel that was submitted? How can you justify
paying double the appraised value for the site if the
need is not critical?
Site selection committee recommended the most useful
piece of property. Negotiations followed after their
recommendation.

33. What do the decades of accomplishments at Altha
and Blountstown schools mean to the school board
members? To the county as a whole?
Ask school board members and citizens of Calhoun
County.

20. At the workshop on Thursday May 22,2008 Supt.
Neves recommended that the school board vote to
rescind the vote-to consolidate Altha and Blouritstown
grades 9-12. At the special board meeting on May
30, 2008, the vote to rescind consolidation was not
removed but it was stated by board member Hassig
that after legislature had approved the funding for
the new school, that the board would vote to rescind
the consolidation order. Is that still the plan that you
will take? Is this legal? Is this ethical? The situation
was explained at the Special Facilities Funding
Committee meeting and our request was approved by
the committee.

Note: I attended the Special Facilities Funding
Committee meeting on July 16, 2008. Making the
presentation was Supt. Mary Sue Neves, Asst. Supt.
Greg Jones, Chairman Grant Williams, and Willie
Pitts. Supt. Neves stated twice to the committee
that the board had voted to consolidate BHS
and Altha 9-12. Nothing was mentioned about
rescinding the consolidation order after funding is
approved by the legislature in March 2009. The
$24.5 million for the new school has been applied
for-THE MONEY HAS NOT BEEN ACQUIRED!

36. How much will the architect charge to redesign
the plans to fit the new Blountstown site?
Atthistimetheschoolboardhasnotmadeaboarddecision
to re-design the plan to fit the new Blountstown site.

Note: As of August 11, 2008, $996,000 has been paid
to the architect. It seems like we still don't have a
final plan but we have spent a million dollars!


As a board member at Chipola State College for 6 years, I have learned that
no decision that involves an expenditure or impacts a community as much as
consolidation would, should be made without documented facts and thorough study.
We do not vote onrany projects until we have the facts and figures in hand. Vote for
Danny Ryals and let me bring this experience, leadership, and common sense to the
Calhoun County School Board. I will do everything possible to help lead our school
system in a positive direction to improve our facilities and educational opportunities
for all Calhoun County children at all 5 schools.
I will try to visit personally with everyone but I know that will be difficult to do.
If I miss you or if you have any questions or would like for me to visit you, you may
contact me at:
Office: 674-5478 Cell: 899-6472 Home: 674-3884

TREASURES


Resist Being
Enticed By Sin
Text: -Proverbs 1:10-19
In the familiar story of Dr.
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, written by
Robert Stevenson, Dr. Jekyll was
a friendly, sociable, good natured
man. Jekyll was enticed by all
the loathsome vices of sin. Jekyll
discovered a potion that would
transform him into a man with
no conscience. Any time Jekyll
wanted to become Hyde and vise
versa, all he had to do was drink
a potion.
So Jekyll enjoyed the brief
pleasures of sin wallowing in
every kind of trespass. It wasn't
long before the inclination of sin
was so strong and the desire to be
Hyde.was so great that he could
not changeback andlive the life of
.Dr. Jekyll. Against his will, Hyde
took over and Dr. Jekyll was not
able to return.
So it is with yielding to the
enticements of sin. What was
once a guilty pleasure grows and
becomes a cruel master as we
become enslaved to the sin we
once enjoyed. Left unchecked by
the Holy Spirit of God at work in
your life, sin will ultimately bring
about your destruction.. Solomon
warned us not to envy the life of the,
wicked or allow them to entice us
by their lifestyle. Scripture says,
"My son, if sinners entice you, do
not give in to them (NTV)." We
are warned, "Such is the end of
all who go after ill-gotten gain; it
takes away the lives of those who
getit(NIV)."
We must realize the truth about
sin and fight the urge to give in to
it. We must be like Billy Sunday
in regards to sin who said, "I'm
against sin. I'll kick it:as long as
I've got a foot. I'll fight it as long
as I've got a fist. I'll butt it as
long as I have a head. I'll bite it.
as long as I've got a tooth. When
I'm old and fistless-and footless
and toothless, I'll gum it till I go
home to Glory and it goes home-
to perdition."

TAX COLLECTOR


As Tax Collector of Calhoun County I
have been committed to provide services
to meet your personal and business needs
and try to create a stress free environment
for the employees and the customers.


I have worked to reorganize to offer the
best service possible in each department
and to reduce the waiting time in the main e:
tag office by relocating the service of driver
license in a separate office. Because of
the wait many Calhoun County residents
were going to surrounding counties for the
service they need, this was taking dollars
out of our county. I reopened driver license
August 2007, I have hired a driver license employee and this has made it
possible to be open MON. TUES AND WED. DUE TO THE INCREASING
NUMBER OF DRIVER LICENSE CUSTOMERS RENEWING BY MAIL
OR ON THE INTERNET THERE IS NOT ENOUGH CUSTOMERS FOR
DRIVER LICENSE TO BE OPEN FIVE 1/2 DAYS A WEEK.

Opening on Saturday would increase the budget and affect the taxpay-
er and would also jeopardize the safety of an employee working without
security.

Effective Oct 1. 2008 any one 79 years of age or UNDER will renew
their license EVERY 8 YEARS. Customers that are 80 years of age or
OLDER will renew every 6 years

THE MAIN TAG AND TITLE OFFICE IS NOT CLOSED AT LUNCH
UNLESS I HAVE A SHORT STAFF THEN I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO
CLOSE DUE TO THE SAFETY OF MY EMPLOYEES.

Innovation, change and REORGANIZING gives a business the ability
to move forward (INSTEAD OF BACKWARD) with efficient service to the
public. If an elected officials efforts are stifled by politics and is not allowed
to reorganize then CALHOUN COUNTY CAN NOT MOVE FORWARD TO
KEEP UP WITH THE CHANGING TECHNOLOGY OF TODAY.

The Tax Collector has a great responsibility of ACCOUNTABILITY TO
THE TAXPAYERS. TAXING AUTHORITIES AND TO THE STATE AGEN-
CIES, COLLECTING. DISBURSING, BALANCING AND MANAGING
MILLIONS EACH YEAR.

This is quite an undertaking and requires many years of experience and
knowledge of the operation Of the tax'collectors office.
I have many years of experience working with two previous tax collec-
tors. NO AMOUNT OF EDUCATION CAN PREPARE YOU OR TAKE
THE PLACE OF THE EXPERIENCE.YOU RECEIVE FROM WORKING
IN THE OFFICE.

I BELIEVE MY PAST EXPERIENCE AND MY JOB PERFORMANCE
QUALIFIES ME TO BE THE BEST CANDIDATE TO SERVE AS TAX
COLLECTOR FOR CALHOUN COUNTY.

Hello, I am Marie Good-

would have been impos-
sible. I would also like to
thank my family, friends and
the people of Liberty Coun-

those I have missed. Your

Florida 4-H: A Century of Youth Success. To commemorate our
centennial and as special and unique fundraiser for Florida 4-H, this
stunning 8.5" x 11" hardcover volume, celebrates the people and
our history from the past 100 years. Relive those precious memories
throughout 208 pages of interesting text, complemented with many
historic and modem photographs:
Since 1909, the Florida 4-H Program has impacted the lives of
youth through lifelong learning, leadership skills, and self-confidence.
What began as a program to teach new farming techniques became a
community-based educational program that teaches young people how
to learn by doing and become engaged citizens. The program would
not be possible without the dedication of every person involved in
4-H as a member, volunteer, parent, faculty/staff, and/or donor.
Florida 4-H: A Century of Youth Success will be available in
November 2008. Reserve your copy today at the advance-discounted

Apalachicola.
The area is part of the
* Apalachicola River Wildlife
and Environmental Area
(WEA). The last prescribed
burn occurred in 2003.
Derek Fussell, an FWC
wildlife biologist, said the
bum is necessary for several
reasons.
"For one thing, fire bums
off the dead and rank grass in
the marsh. That has happened
naturally for thousands of
years, but because of people,
houses, roads and other
considerations, we now have
to pick our times carefully to
use fire," he said.
"Another big benefit from
the bum is it kills or suppresses
hardwoods and nonnative
plants from gaining a foothold.
It also reduces the fuel load
and prevents catastrophic
wildfires, which can, and do,
happen."
As in the past, Fussell said
the FWC is working closely
with the Florida Division of
Forestry and Department of
Environmental Protection and
takes into account National
Weather Service information.
The burn will take place when
the correct environmental
conditions occur, including a
southerly wind and necessary
humidity.
FWC staff posted notices
on all houseboats in the maze
of creeks and tributaries in the
designated burn area advising
boat owners of the burn.
Fussell said the burn is
done quickly with the use
of a helicopter and a DAID
(Delayed Action Ignition
Device) machine, which is an
ignition-distribution method
for setting a fire line from the
air.
The bum is expected to be
finished in one day.

Catfish weighs in at 64


Long-time Washington County
resident James Mitchell caught
a new state-record blue catfish
late Monday afternoon on the
Choctawhatchee River. |
The state-record blue catfish
weighed 64 pounds, 8 ounces and
was 53 1/2 inches long. The fish is ||| an
3 pounds larger than the previous
record, a 61-pound, 8-ounce blue Con r
cat that came from-Little Escambia
Creek north of Pensacola.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission fisheries biologists
Chris Paxton and Claire Mangum met with Mitchell
on Tuesday in Bonifay and weighed his fish on
certified scales.
The 64-year-old Mitchell, who is disabled but
still enjoys fishing, fished a favorite spot on the
Choctawhatchee Monday'near Caryville.
He caught the record catfish at sundown but
needed the help of his son and grandson to pull the
fish over the side of his boat.


I)


.5 pounds
He said the one-minute
fight left him worn out.
Mitchell fishes for catfish often
on the river and uses bream, which
is his bait of choice.
He caught the blue cat on a
hand-sized bluegill, 6-foot rod
and bait-caster reel loaded with
50-pound-test line.
"The bigger the bream the
better," Mitchell said. He catches
his bream using either a fly rod or


cane pole.
Within the past couple of months, he's caught
big blues or'channel cats, he's not sure which, out
of the same stretch of the river, weighing 40 1/4
and 41 1/2 pounds.
While blue catfish are found in most of the
rivers and some creeks in the Panhandle over to
the Suwannee River, they are not native to the area.
They were originally found in rivers and tributaries
in the Midwest and the Mississippi River drainage.
How they made it to Florida waterways is unknown.


Blue crab workshop Feb. 27 in Apalachicola


The Florida Fish arid Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
has scheduled a series of public
workshops to receive comments
regarding a possible closed
harvest season for blue crabs.
The FWC is looking at ways to
create a closed blue crab harvest
season so lost and abandoned
traps can be collected and
removed from Florida's coastal
waters. The primary option under


consideration would establish
three regional blue crab harvest
closures across the state for a
period of up to 10 days.-
The FWC encourages
interested people to participate
in the workshops, which will
take place locally from 6-8 p.m.
as follows: -
Wednesday, Aug. 27 -
Apalachicola National Estuarine
Research Reserve, 261 7th St.,


Apalachicola
Anyone requiring special
accommodations to participate
in the workshops should advise
the FWC at least five days prior
to the workshop by calling
850-488-6411.
If you are hearing- or speech-
impaired, contact the FWC
using the Florida Relay Service
at 1-800-955-8771 (TDD) or
1-800-955-8770 (voice).

NOTICE TO PARENTS:
ASSISTANCE NEEDED

Are you aware that the Liberty County
School District receives funding from the
government to educate our children? The
district is provided funding for each stu-
dent individually. The amount per student
varies.
The federal government determines
what they believe it will cost to educate
each student based on several factors
including disabilities and socio-economic
status.
The government recognizes that stu-
dents with disabilities require more ser-
vices and that students frequently need
financial assistance for their meals. Often
yearly income that the public believes is


r


A 'w

~.. ~:


eligible for assistance is not what the gov-
ernment recognizes.
You could help Liberty County School
District provide educational services to
all of our students by simply filling out
the Free/Reduced Meal Form that is sent
home each year. The information you
provide is kept confidential and no one
need know. All students progress through
the meal lines using their personal code
and when meals are paid in advance no
money is exchanged to distinguish free,
reduced or full pay students.
- Please call Ms. Karen Peddie, Director
of Food Services (643-2275, ext 238), for
more information.


LIBERTY COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT NOTICE FOR PARENTS


NO CHILD LEFT
BEHIND SCHOOL CHOICE
W. R. Tolar and Hosford School did not
make Adequate Yearly Progress as deter-
mined by the US Department of Education.
Based on the AYP status of each of these
schools parents are to be provided with op-
tions. If your student attended either school
during the 2007-2008 school year you should
have received a letter outlining your options.
Copies of this letter are also available at the
school, the Superintendent's office and may
be printed from the district Web site at www.
Icsbonline.org
COMMUNICATION
For your child's safety, please ensure that
the schools have current contact information
for you including current mailing address and
telephone numbers. Please update these
during the year when changes occur.
This yearwe will again be implementing the
Connect-ED messaging service through-
out the district. This service enables us to
personally communicate with parents about
emergency situations, school events and im-
portant issues impacting your child. It will al-
low us to send personalized voice messages
to your family's home, work or cell phones,
e-mail communications, and even text mes-
sages. We will be able to reach everyone in
the district within minutes.
It is important that your school has all of
your current telephone numbers and e-mail
addresses so that you will not miss out on
any important communications. Please help
us ensure we have your current information,
and indicate on the enrollment form sent
home on the first day of school what data you
want included in our database. Please be
aware that the Connect-ED service cannot
dial an extension, so be sure the numbers
you include are direct lines. Also, we recom-
mend that high school and middle school at-
tendance messages be routed to a number
other than the home telephone number such


as a parent cell phone number.
Please note that if your home phone has
the Teleblocker or-Telezapper feature acti-
vated Connect-ED messages will not be de-
livered to that phone line. To ensure you are
receiving the important information that will
be communicated via Connect-ED messag-
es, please make sure you provide us with an
alternative primary contact phone number
(such as a cell phone or work number).
Please have your child return the com-
pleted form no later than August 25, 2008,
and be assured that all personal information
will be maintained in the strictest confidence.
For more information, call us at 643-2275
x238.
SCHOOL MEALS
There have been many changes related to
school meals this year.
Balanced Choices: LCSB in partnership
with Chartwells will be offering a Balanced
Choices program in addition to student fa-
vorites. Balanced Choices are complete
meals that have been examined by dieti-
cians to meet or exceed the recommended
dietary guidelines for Americans set forth by
the US Department of Agriculture in calorie,
fat content & vitamin consumption for lunch.
We will also be offering whole grains several
days a week through such items as wild rice
and whole grain breads and cereals.
Seniors may leave campus at lunch with a
signed note from their parent/guardian.
In accordance with Florida Statute NO
outside food vendors are allowed to make
deliveries to any school campus during nor-
mal school hours.
School meal prices are as follows;
Breakfast $1.25
Lunch $2.00.....Pre-K 5th Grade
Lunch $2.25 .............Grades 6-12
Lunch $3.00 ...................... Adults
Your child may qualify for free or reduced
price meals. Reduced price is $0.30 for
breakfast and $0.40 for lunch. If you are in-


terested, please complete and return the ap-
plication that will be sent home with students-
on the first day of school.
All students with insufficient funds in the
morning will be given an opportunity to con-
tact their parent/guardian to obtain funds
prior to their lunch period. Students in K-
5th grade who have insufficient funds will
be provided a meal consisting of a cheese
sandwich, a choice of fruit/vegetable and
choice of milk or juice which will be charged
to your child's lunch account. No meals will
be charged for students in grades 6-12.
ATTENDANCE
Due to the number of students with tru-
ancy problems the school district will strictly
enforce the attendance of all students again
this year. We have conferred with Judge
Ken Hosford and have been assured of his
full support in enforcing state law. Please
read carefully the attendance policy in the
Student Code of Conduct which will be sent
home with each student on the first day of
school.
CELL PHONE POLICY
Personal telephones or other electronic
communication devices are discouraged
during school hours. Carefully read your
child's school policy related to electronic de-
vices when it is sent home on the first day
of school. A copy-may be acquired from
the school prior to the first day if desired.
DRESS CODE FOR 2008-2009

IN LOVING MEMORY OF MY DAUGHTER,
TANIA MARTIN POTTER.
Its been a year since that fatal accident that took her life. Like all families, we
had good times and we had bad. But she would take my hand and say, "Mama,
I love you."
When I was sad or worried, she would say, "Mama, it will be okay."
Not a day goes by that I don't think about her the way she smiled and tossed
her head or the way she frowned when things went bad. In every room of my
house, she left a memory. I see her in the kitchen sampling the food. I see her in
the yard picking up trash, raking leaves or watering the flowers. I hear her voice
in the wind bi~ i.t' i.gl,' the trees. I see her in my granddaughter, laughing
blue.eyes and blonde hair I see her in Jacob, so full of life. When the wind blows
her wind chimes sing. I hear her voice saying, "Mama, it will be okay."
Life goes on. She is gone. But her memory lingers on in her children, in the
things she did and the family and friends who loved her Jacob and Jaden will
grow up. They are young but they both have their own memories. They will never
forget he, their life with her; how much she loved them and they loved her
I want to, again, thank all my family and friends for being therefore me when
Tania was killed. Thank you for the flowers cards, food you brought or kind
words. I sent out thank you cards but if I failed to send any of you a thank you
card, it wasn't intentional.
Love, Mama
A sister is someone more special than words. She is love mixed with a friendship
and a million favorite memories that will always last. A sister is a hand within
your hand enfolded with love and understanding. She gives you a feeling that
makes you wonder what you would ever do without her and no one is loved so
dearly. I love you Tania.
Your sister, Terra.

Plants in the Clerodendrum
family, also known as the
glorybowers, are popular
ornamentals,
grown widely for
their distinctive
and beautiful
f.l o w e r s.
While some
plants in this
family .provide
spectacular .
flowers and .
make wonderful '"
additions to
our Florida
landscapes,
others can cause
gardeners to
regret the day
they ever planted
one.
Three clerodendrums that
are somewhat behaved and
provide unique and beautiful
flowers are the blue butterfly
bush, the pagoda flower and
the bleeding heart vine.
Clerodendrum ugandense,
or blue butterfly bush (not to
be confused with buddleia),
is native to Africa and is
an erect, medium to large
shrub that can reach 12 feet in
height. Its blooms are clusters
of butterfly or orchid-shaped
flowers in combinations .of
blue, violet and white. These
have long stamens that are
blue-to-violet with afternoon
shade or white in full sun.
Blue butterfly bush performs
best in a frostfree climate, but
it is root hardy in zones 8 and
9, freezing to the ground in
winter, but returning from its
roots in spring.
But even more unusual than
the blue butterfly bush is the
spectacular pagoda flower (C.
paniculatum). This plant has
orange flower spikes that are


E by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
u Santa Rosa County J


uniquely tiered like an oriental
pagoda. The individual
flowers are funnel shaped
with long tubes making it
an excellent flower to attract
hummingbirds.
These plants are erect, open,
semi-woody shrubs with large
leaves. The shrub sometimes
has multiple stems and can
be 3 to 5 feet tall and easily
spreads to 3 to 5 feet across.
They are native to Southeast
Asia and appear to have
much more cold tolerance
than expected. In Northwest
Florida, they can be expected
to sprout back in spring
after dying to the ground in
winter. Very severe winters
may reduce the amount of
flowering. Plant it near a
south facing wall for added
protection from cold winters.
Pagoda flower may produce
numerous suckers and spread
itself around the garden, but
it is not really invasive, and
rarely becomes a nuisance. It
is, however, a big spreading
plant that requires a large


space.
One last species I want to
share is the bleeding heart vine,
C. thomsoniae.
Bleeding heart
is a small vine
excellent forpartial
shade in Florida.
The attractive
red flowers are
j surrounded by
white calyces-
reminiscent of
paper lanterns.
The plant's
stems can get 15
feet long, climbing
without tendrils,
Suckers or root
..... hairs, but rather
by twining through
and around its support. This
vine does not spread as much
as some, and is therefore a
good choice for a restricted
support like a doorway arch or
container trellis, but not such
a good candidate to cover a
fence or arbor.
Now for the bad, unruly
clerodendrums. The
cashmere bouquet (C. bungei)
is extremely aggressive in
nature. Don't plant it unless
you can contain it. Likewise
for the harlequin glorybower
(C. trichotomum) which
produces suckers that will
spread 30 to 50 feet.
The clerodendrums are in
the verbena family, and they
should be part of your family,
too. Keep in mind, however,
that many clerodendrums tend
to spread by underground
stems and they all need lots
of space.

Theresa Friday is the

Extension Agent for Santa
Rosa County.

Oral Cancer
On Saturday, October 6, Dr. Steven
Andreaus, a Raleigh dentist, stopped
in Asheville during a 750-mile bicycle
ride across North Carolina to raise .
awareness for oral cancer.
While there are many positive facets
on the landscape of disease preventive
and early detection methods, most
diseases, particularly cancers, have
seen declining statistics. However
many are surprised to learn that one Dr. Larry J. Cook
American dies of oral cancer every
hour of every day, a statistic that has remained virtually unchanged
for more than forty years. In fact, recent statistics from the American
Cancer Society indicate that the incidence of oral cancer has
increased by 5.5% will be diagnosed with oral cancer or pharyngeal
cancer this year, and only half of those will be alive in five years.
Dr. Andreaus and others are to be applauded for calling attention
to profession of dentistry that the burden of the responsibility lies.
Early detection of oral cancer is difficult because it occurs in an
area of the body in which self-examination is not easy. Fifty percent
of the population never visit a dentist except in an emergency
circumstance. Even at a dental visit, if the dentist or hygienist is
focusing on the patients' most obvious physical need, incipient oral
cancer can be easily missed.
Most oral cancers are completely painless. Therefore, diagnosis
does not occur until the disease has spread to other areas, such as
the lymph nodes of the neck.
Oral cancer may begin with a white or red patch of tissue in the
mouth, or a small ulcer which does not heal in a reasonable length
of time. The most common areas affected are the tongue and floor
of the mouth. Other common sites include the base of the tongue,
back of the throat, and tonsillar pillars.
The main risk is, of course, tobacco use. Smokers and user of
chewing tobacco or "snuff' are six times more likely to develop oral

or pharyngeal cancer consume alcohol. People who smoke and
drink are at an even higher risk than those who only drink or only
use tobacco products.
The human Papilloma Virus (HPV), a proven cause of cervical
cancer, has recently been implicated as a causative factor in oral
cancer as well. Studies are ongoing to investigate the connection,
and to search for a possible vaccine.

part of a developed to aid cancer diagnosis. The American Cancer
Society recommends oral cancer exams every three years prior to
age 40 and once a year thereafter.
Visit your dentist at regular intervals and be sure that an oral
cancer check is part of the regimen. If your dentist recommends
one of the new oral cancer detection systems, please realize we are
trying to reverse an oral cancer trend that seems out of control.

'Cultivating Leadership'

the theme for the new

Calhoun school term

from Calhoun County Superintendent
of Schools Mary Sue Neves
Welcome to the 2008-2009 school year! After
a busy summer, Calhoun County School District
employees are back at work, ready to begin a
successful year. The district's theme for the year is
Cultivating Leadership: Harvesting Success. Staff and
teachers have been busy over the summer and in pre-
school, getting ready to cultivate the fields of students'
minds for the coming year. Teachers are ready to
plant seeds of knowledge in their students, and are
then prepared to weed and fertilize the planted seeds
throughout the year to ensure bountiful growth.
To begin our new school year, county-wide staff
and retired teachers met to share and fellowship
over breakfast. We were wonderfully entertained
by talented Sarah Lynn White, daughter of Eddie
and Cherie White, as she sang I Am a Promise. The
words of the song were a reminder of the promise and
potential each child possesses as they walk through
the doors of their classrooms each day.
At the breakfast, principals and their staff were
recognized for excellence in performance last
year. Altha, Carr, Blountstown Elementary, and
Blountstown Middle Schools were congratulated
for earning grades of 'A', while Blountstown High
School was congratulated for earning a grade of
'B'. Blountstown Middle School moved up from a
grade of 'C' to achieve an 'A', while Blountstown
High School moved up from a 'D'. I appreciate the
dedication and hard work of all staff members in
achieving this outstanding accomplishment.
In addition to individual schools performing high,
once again, our district received an 'A'. We were
one out of 32 Florida districts earning that title. Out
of those 32 districts, we are ranked at number 14.
The Florida Department of Education calculates the
district grade using student performance on the FCAT,
student learning gains, and the learning gains of the
lowest 25%.
Principals have stayed busy this summer recruiting
and hiring highly qualified teachers to add to our staff.
Thirteen new teachers have been hired fill vacant
positions. We're excited to have been able to add
such talented newcomers to the experienced teachers
we already have. We also have several district level
changes in personnel. Pam Bozeman is taking over the
reins as principal at Blountstown Elementary School,
and Sue Price is filling the position of assistant
principal at Blountstown High School. Vicki Davis
left Blountstown Elementary School as principal and
moved to Director of Special Services.
Summer is the heightened time for our maintenance
staff. They have worked tirelessly on improvements to
our schools. We are going through many transitions, as
changes are made to improve our existing campuses.
We appreciate the accomplishments of our dedicated
maintenance staff.
As most people know, there were state budget cuts
in education for the upcoming year. Our district alone
lost over $800,000. Because of budget cuts, many
surrounding counties have been forced to lay off some
of their employees. I am pleased to announce that our
district has had no layoffs. Our programs also will not
be affected by these budget cuts. I appreciate everyone
working hard to conserve and cut back.
As we move into this new school year, I would
like to take the opportunity to thank parents and
community leaders for the support you give to our
schools and students. You are the partners we cannot
do without. Parents, please stay involved in your
child's education, as it will make a huge difference
in their lives. Next, I want to thank our district staff
for their tireless dedication to our students. It is each
and every one of you that will help plant a seed in the
life of a child, and it is you who will help cultivate
those seeds to harvest. You may not see the immediate
harvest, but it will be there, as each child is successful
in the following years. I want to wish each of you a
wonderful year as you set out to meet the harvest
challenge that has been set before us.

STAR


SCOPE

FOR AUG. 10 AUG. 16

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, if you are going to be
putting your best foot forward,
then you may want to start by
buying a new pair of shoes. In
other words, you are going to
have to invest in your future.

TAURUS Apr 2 I/May 21
Taurus, it's easy to sound as if
you know what you're talking
about. The tough part lies in ac-
tually putting some facts behind
what you say. Others will be
expecting results.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Take a moment to plot out
your week's activities, Gemini.
You'll find organization makes
it much easier to make it
through the days.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, no matter how many
times you look in your wallet,
you won't find that money has
magically appeared. It takes
hard work to earn what you
think you deserve.

LEO Jul.23/Aug 23
A breath of fresh air is on the
horizon, Leo. Just hang in there
a little longer and you'll dis-
cover S few surprises. Aquarius
proves entertaining on Tuesday.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Making a point is one thing,
Virgo. Starting an all-out argu-
ment is another. Unless you
want to be in the dog house,
find a new perspective on the
situation.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 2.3
Thinking happy thoughts just
may bring you to that happy
place you desire. But a little
work and faith can also do
wonders to get you there a bit
faster, Libra.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
It's remarkable just what you
can accomplish when you dig in
and set your mind to a project,
Scorpio. You are perhaps one
of the strongest signs in this
regard.

SAGITTARIUS -
SNov 23/Dec 21
It'll take a whole lot of finesse
to work through a sticky
situation at home, but you're
capable, Sagittarius. Maybe you
want to get some advice from
Pisces in this regard.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
You seem to have all of the
answers, Capricorn, but are
they the right solutions to the
questions being asked? Time
spent deep in thought will cause
interesting epiphanies.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Aquarius, take a few days to un-
wind from some stressful times.
A summer's end vacation could
be just wlat you need. Bring a
friend along.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
Pisces, the dog days of the
season are sapping your energy
levels. You have to muster up
the energy to make it through a
work assignment.

Dear EarthTalk:
What's going on in
the music industry E A
with all the CDs and
plastic CD holders TA L
undoubtedly gener- Questions &
About Our E
eating a lot of plastic
waste?
According to the U.S. Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency
(EPA), CDs and DVDs are typi-
cally manufactured by combining
various mined metals (aluminum,
gold, silver and nickel) with pe-
troleum-derived plastics, lacquers
and dyes. Given what complicat-
ed beasts CDs and DVDs are-
products with thin layers of dif-
ferent materials mixed together
are nearly impossible to recycle-
most municipal recycling pro-
gram won't accept them, leaving
consumers to fend for themselves
in figuring out how to dispose of
them. As a result, most discarded
discs end up in the trash.
These difficult-to-recycle ma-
terials can pollute groundwater
and, in turn, contribute to a whole
host of human health problems.
But the low cost of producing
such top-selling consumer items
means that replacing them with
something greener is not likely
anytime soon.
Research has shown that poly-
lactic acid (PLA), a biodegrad-
able plastic-substittite derived
from corn and other agricultural

environment


wastes, could replace
plastic polycarbonate
as a disc's main sub-
strate, but the pres-
ent high cost of using
such a material makes
it unlikely to catch
on any time soon with


those paying to produce mass
volumes of CDs and DVDs.
As for jewel cases, most are
made out of Polyvinyl Chloride
(PVC), an inexpensive petro-
chemical-based plastic that is
notoriously difficult to recycle
and has been linked to elevated
cancer rates among workers and
neighbors where it's manufac-
tured. Furthermore, when PVC
is thrown in with regular recy-
clables it can contaminate en-
tire batches, ruin equipment and
cause human health problems.
While cardboard and paper jewel
cases may be all the rage among
a few record labels-Warner Mu-
sic Group's U.S. division, for ex-
ample, has been using 30 percent
post-recycled paper for the pack-
aging in all of its CDs and DVDs
since 2005-the high cost and
low durability of such alterna-
tives have kept them largely out
of the mainstream.
A shift in consumer prefer-
ences already underway may be
just the thing that will make ev-
eryone's personal collections of
music and movies greener.


EXPERIENCED QUALIFIED COMMITTED

As a classroom teacher in Liberty County for 12 years I challenged my students to plan for their future. I was personally involved in their education
through developing relationships that are still strong today. Having been born here and spent my entire career working for the Liberty County
School Board, I have kept sight of who we are and how it feels to be a BULLDOG. As your Superintendent I commit to use this experience to
challenge all of our students to plan for their future and I will work to make that future a reality.

As Director of Instruction for Liberty County for 18 years I have worked with all aspects of our School System. I know our past ~ the good and
the bad. I've rejoiced with the "A" Schools and cried with the "C" Schools. I know our present ~ we have some great programs and I am helping
schools to work on the areas needing improvement. I know what our future could hold with the support of the community and staff we can offer our
students a competitive future in the global world. My years of successful experience within this district have ensured I am qualified for the role of
Superintendent of Liberty County Schools, and I have a Master's Degree in Educational Administration which equipped me with an understanding of
educational systems, an ability to manage a large number of people and the ability to navigate the often cumbersome bureaucracies of a public school.

During my tenure I have worked diligently to acquire many grants to fund new programs. I am committed to continued fiscal stability. In
collaboration with our Finance Department and The Liberty County School Board, I commit to refine and improve our financial status even
further. I will continue to pursue additional funding through grant opportunities. I have a proven ability to gain additional funding for our district
through the acquisition of numerous grants including: br v a -* "a' ..: I


School Health Facilities Grant bringing new clinics to school campuses
21st Century Grant providing before and after school tutoring and enrichment
SEDNET which provides a service network for students with emotional disabilities
Family Involvement Grant which provides resources for Family Reading Nights and more

Transition to Teaching Grant which helps career professionals to enter the teaching profession

So as voters, I hope you ask yourselves, "Who's experienced with our schools and our community today,
who's proven to be qualified to take us from today and into the future fiscally sound, and who's committed
to improving our schools?"
