According to a report from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Jones drove to Blountstown to meet
and sell crack cocaine to a confidential informant just
Deputies were looking on as Jones handed over
several rocks of crack cocaine to the informant and
received $200 in marked bills.
As Jones drove off in a 1993 blue Chevrolet Cor-
sica, deputies followed him a short distance from the
scene before attempting a traffic stop.
Near the intersection of Lambert Street and State
Road 69, Sheriff's Office Captain Michael Bryant
pulled up next to the car as Major Rodney Smith of
the Blountstown Police Department stopped in front
of Jones' vehicle. "They attempted to block him in,
but when Major Smith got out of the car to take him
into custody, the suspect accelerated aggressively,"
said Investigator Mark Mallory.
When Jones hit the gas and drove forward, Smith.

Anxious drivers flock to the pumps to fill up Friday
" by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Long lines formed at the gas pumps Friday afternoon in anticipation of
a spike in prices. Vehicles surrounded the pumps in Liberty and Calhoun
County as drivers topped off their tanks and filled up gas cans to keep some
i Extra fuel on hand at home as rumors that the price of fuel in neighboring
counties was passing the $5 a gallon mark.
"The craziness started about 11:30 on Friday morning," said Express Lane
Manager Linda Newton. "We sold about 11,000 gallons between 11:30 a.m.
and 7 p.m." When the rush began. regular gas was $3.69. Following two
deliveries by gas trucks that day, the price had gone up 30 cents. As of Tuesday
afternoon, it remained at $3.99 a gallon, according to Newton.

The store was out of fuel from 7 p.m. Friday
until 6 a.m. Saturday.
While the prices here are more stable than
at some area pumps, the supply may not be as
plentiful. Tuesday afternoon, the Express Lane
had 1,768 gallons left with expectations of a
fuel delivery "sometime in the next 24 to 48
While gome stores in outlying areas are
charging higher prices, Newton doesn't see it
getting that high here. "People just cannot pay
$5 a gallon for gas," she said.
"It'll all straighten out in a few days," she
said, adding after Friday's rush on the pumps,
"I think everybody in Liberty County has got a
full tank today."
Impatient drivers waiting in line used their cell
phones to call Eubanks Oil Co. in Blountstown
to demand that someone be sent to direct traffic
at the Southern Express in Hosford Friday.
Eubanks Oil, which supplies the area's four
Southern Express stores as well as Big Bend
Bait & Tackle in Blountstown, is now receiving
. only 50% of the fuel they normally have to
"They've got us on allocation. We have no
idea how long it will be," said Cy Eubanks of
Eubanks Oil. He said they could return to 100%
distribution at anytime.
"We ran out everywhere at one point some
places on Friday, some on Saturday and some
on Sunday, but we were able to get resupplied
Monday," he said.
He said the price scares are coming from
independent suppliers and noted that the larger
companies are remaining fairly stable on their
- prices. The Southern Express stores were selling
regular gas for $3.99 Tuesday.
He said they decided not to buy additional fuel
from another supplier after learning that it would
have cost them $5.35 a gallon before adding any
markup at the pump. While their markup varies
between two cents and ten cents a gallon, he said,
"We try to stay within the market."

afternoon, according to FHP
Trooper Ron Cox.
Travis D. Williams, 43, was

made a left turn onto Roy Gold
Road, pulling into the path of
a northbound 2005 Chevrolet
pickup, driven by 24-year-old
Gregory A. Betts.
"The angle of the impact

receiving more serious inju-

could have been a lot worse,"
Cox said. He estimated that
Williams' truck was going
between 5 and 10 mph while

A collision with a cement truck left a family more frightened
that injured but caused an estimated $6,000 in damages to their
car, according to FHP Trooper Larry Battle.
Paige White, 36, of Blountstown, was traveling south on
State Road 71 around 3:05 p.m. Sept. 9 when she slowed to
make a left turn on Hayes Subdivision Road.
A 2000 Volvo cement truck, driven by Enrique Vila, 46,
of Clarksville, failed to stop and ran into the rear of the 2004
Chevrolet passenger car.
Battle said the truck, which was loaded with cement, was
traveling about 30 mph.
Vila was ndt hurt. White was not injured but was left with
a sore neck, the trooper said. Her two sons, Hayden, 10 and
Halston, 8, were not harmed.
Vila was charged with careless driving.

It's a very strange political campaign. Out on
the campaign trail, John McCain and Sarah
Palin are talking about how they stood up to the
Republican party. They fought the Republican
establishment. And they battled Republicans.
Their message: vote Republican.
Sources in North Korea say that dictator Kim
Jong-11 is very sick. He may have to shift power
to one of his three sons. Kim Jong-Nam, Kim
Jong-Chul or Kim Jong-Woo. Of course, there's
still an out-of-the-box chance he'll pick Sarah
Palin. She comes when you least expect it.
More good news this week for John McCain.
It seems he is now matching Barack Obama's
fundraising numbers. But he does have a slight
advantage. See, for every dollar McCain raises,
Medicare matches it. JAY LENO
Matt Damon says Sarah Palin would be a
disaster in the White House. I think I'll wait until
I hear what Ben Affleck has to say.
Dick Cheney told reporters there's no reason
why Sarah Palin cannot be a successful vice
president in the McCain administration. In fact,
not only can she shoot a lawyer in the face, she
can field dress him as well. JAY LENO
Experts say that since Sarah Palin became the
vice presidential nominee, there's been an actual
spike in the sales of her style of eyeglasses.
Gone way up. Yeah. Yeah, with Palin's glasses,
you'll be able to see everything, except what
your teenage daughter's up to.
I don't know what it's doing around the country,
but here in New York City we had a wet, rainy
day. Today, John McCain admitted he doesn't
know how many umbrellas he owns.
They're having trouble picking jurors in Q.J.
Simpson's armed robbery trial. The judge says
they want a jury of O.J.'s peers, but it's hard
to find anyone else who got away with double
murder. CONAN O'BRIEN
Hey, no sign of the North Korean leader Kim
Jong-II. A lot of speculation. Nobody's seen him.
They say if he is not in the public eye for at least
six months, you know what happens? He winds
up on "Dancing with the Stars." JAY LENO
There is some good news for John McCain.
According to the latest polls, which came out
today, John McCain has started to open up a
lead over Barack Obama. This is true. Yeah. The
USAToday poll has McCain ahead by ten points.
The 'CBS News' poll has the two tied. And the
MSNBC poll says that Obama won the election
last week. CONAN O'BRIEN

NEW BOOK: Hot, Flat and Crowded
NEW BOOK: Hot, Flat and Crowded
Hot, Flat and Crowded is the title of
Thomas L. Friedman's second book that
gives an excellent assessment of two
primary challenges that face America.
Friedman states that the two challenges
with which America must grapple are
America's loss of focus and purpose
since 9/11, and the global environmen-
tal crisis which affects our food chain,
fuels and forest.
Friedman's previous book on this subject, The World
is Flat, analyzed America's economic position in the in-
ternational community. The U.S. has on average a $60
billion per month trade deficit primarily with China. The
reasons are a large cheap labor workforce and a con-
trolled economic environment that focuses primarily on
production rather than profit. China's workforce is about
900 million or about three times the population of the
U.S. Also, China's workforce is about nine times larger
that the U.S. workforce.
However, the primary reasons for trade imbalances
are the U.S. consumer's demand for cheap goods and
services and corporate America's desire to reduce cost
and increase profit margins. So, we do it to ourselves.
In The World is Flat, Friedman makes the point that
advances in worldwide communication systems makes
it possible for task or jobs, particularly in the service in-
dustry, to be accomplished anywhere in the world. Your
health insurance account may be maintained in India.
One of the weekly news magazines reported that your
x-ray may be read by a doctor in India.
In Hot, Flat and Crowded, Friedman says that since
9/11 America has become more isolated. I agree. I think
that America under the Bush administration's leader-
ship has taken on a "siege mentality." Many people want
walls around the country, and the Homeland Security de-
partment is actually spending millions to build 900 miles
of fence along the Mexican border. In the process, they
are fencing off thousands of acres of land that belong to
U.S. citizens. Talk about a land grab.
Lou Dobbs on CNN is the national town crier for
sealing the borders. If Dobbs had his way we would be
"Fortress America" with' walls a hundred foot high and
moats with alligators and snakes.
In the interest of protecting us from terrorists, Bush
has shredded the Constitution. Police state comes to
mind because the governmenfcan de-
clare you to be in the terrorist business,
and you are then in the lockup without
any rights until Hell freezes over.
If you return from an overseas trip,
the government can seize your laptop,
keep it as long as they like and read/
copy all the data, all without probable
cause and a court order. The list of
things that can be done to us under the
auspices of the Patriot Act is scary.
Friedman describes our current national mentality as
being "as dumb as we wanna be." His view is that this
negative attitude started in the 1980s and has continued
to build. I agree because the American people have col-
lectively buried their heads in the sand and permitted the
national leadership to run the country into the ditch.
In my opinion, neither the Republican nor Democrat
government model is adequate in dealing with the seri-
ous issues that face this country. The Republicans have
nothing to offer except the tired rhetoric of no taxes, fear
mongering, hatred and ridicule of anyone, anything or
any idea to the left of Atilla the Hun. -"
The Democrats aren't much better in their governance.
The Democrats can't fix every social ill that affects peo-
ple. Stop trying and find some sensible way of insuring a
national cash flow that will provide a reasonable degree
of goods and services for the American people.
The American people need to stop whining about any
and every little thing that irritates them and get on with
it. Life isn't fair-There is no free lunch. If you want this
place called America to continue to exist then work at it
and pay your way.
Am I so naive that I think that any of what I just wrote
will happen? Nope, because people are people, and
Mother Nature or God hasn't repealed the Seven Deadly
Friedman's two books should be required reading for
the presidential and vice presidential candidates Mc-
Cain, Palin, Obama and Biden. Also, every talking head
that has access to a microphone on television or talk ra-
dio should be required to read these books before they
open their big, fat mouths and start spewing trivial, inane
political talking points.
Will that happen? Nope, and Thomas Jefferson's call
for a well-informed electorate will never happen.

PALIN MAY PROVE MADISON WRONG
WASHINGTON The presidential race has been underway
for more than a year with so much news coverage that a poll
taken this summer discovered what it termed Obama fatigue.
Voters were tired of hearing about Barack Obama and the
historic nature of anAfrican-American securing a major party
presidential nomination for the first time. At the same time
they say they've heard enough, voters also tell pollsters they
don't know what Obama stands for beyond the amorphous
words "hope" and "change," and they don't know if they can
trust someone so young and new to the political stage to keep
Contradictory views are not uncommon in politics. The
same voters who want lower taxes and smaller government
do not support cutbacks in government services. Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin halted the infamous bridge to nowhere but kept
the $223 million Congress appropriated, touting her reform
credentials while spending the money on other projects. With
just weeks left to decide which ticket will lead the country for
the next four or eight years, voters are just now beginning to
After an initial report that Palin would return to Alaska for a
few days before striking out on her own, the McCain campaign
reversed course and decided to have them campaign together.
The reason: Palin generates such excitement that people were
lining up for hours just to catch a glimpse. It is the. first time
in his long campaign that McCain is attracting crowds that
come close to rivaling those for Obama. A front-page photo
in The New York Times showed a sea of people spilling out
of an airport hangar and onto the tarmac as McCain and his
spirited new running mate offered versions of their Conven-
An unstinting conservative, Palin makes the choice clear on
social and religious issues, but the people showing up at her
rallies with McCain are not all true believers. The question that
hangs over the political process is to what extent will Palin's
newly-minted celebrity status trump reservations about her
far Right views. She is such a compelling stage presence that
voters eager to welcome a dynamic reform-minded newcomer
might overlook views that in a less attractive personality they
would-find unacceptable. In other words, she doesn't have to
fool all of the people all of the time, just some of the people,
and preferably those hardscrabble voters in key swing states
like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
This election will test whether James Madison was right
when he, foremost philosopher among the Founding Fathers,
placed his faith-in the American electorate. For those who
believe George W. Bush should never have been elected
president, they can blame the Supreme Court for the 2000
election outcome or Bush's masquerading as a compassion-
ate conservative. But it's hard to excuse the electorate for
re-electing Bush in 2004 when voters had plenty of evidence
of his incompetence and ideological rigidity. If readers are
wondering if the McCain-Palin ticket could be elected despite
the far Right views of a vice-presidential contender who would
be a heartbeat away from a 72-year-old president with a history
of melanoma, the answer is yes.
The religious right is some 15 percent of the electorate, and
they are a significant bloc of voters in places like southern Ohio
and western Pennsylvania. But Palin needs to do more than
bring home the Republican base; she has to help McCain win
over independents. Her views are anathema to most indepen-
dents who tend to be centrists, but her celebrity status opens
the door to making a connection with these voters despite their
differences. That's why it is the ultimate test of the informed
electorate that Madison envisioned. Whichever side prevails
in November, surprise isn't an option.

HANDS THAT SHED
Text: Proverbs 6:17
John J. Harrington, the president
of the Fraternal Order of Police and
a 27 year veteran of the police force,
says, "There is hatred today in this
country that's growing and growing.
Where I live a man was walking to
church, and two men came up behind
him and cut his throat."
"Another man was just standing
on a comer when a bunch of kids said,
'Let's give it to him,' and they killed
him. A little girl was walking up the
street, and a boy just came along and
stabbed her. All these things seem
to happen for no reason at all just
One of the seven things that God
hates is "hands that sheds innocent
blood." Dean and Taswell say that
this phrase means, "A murderous and
cruel disposition, which, rather than
have its plans frustrated, will imbue
the hands with innocent blood, the
blood of those who have done it no
God considers the life of a person
a sacred thing. He warnsthat He will
demand an accounting from anyone
who sheds the blood of another.
While most of us may not be tempted
to end a life, we are all tempted to
hate. That is where our murderous
intentions begin. In fact, Jesus once
said, "Whosoever is angry with his
brother without a cause shall be in
danger of the judgment."
We can allow our anger to grow
out of control and begin to hate
people for some of the most foolish
reasons. Hatred can take root in our
heart over something simple like
a co-worker who got the raise or
promotion that you felt you should
have had when in fact, the co-worker
or your employer did nothing wrong.
But to hate, is to destroy ourselves.
"Hating people is like burning down
your own house to get rid of a rat." -

1 have an old recipe that callsfor liquamen. ,
What is it? -B. P., Seattle, Wash. A
ANSWER: We:think that liquamen was TI
fermented fish paste, something like the stuff
used today in Thai recipes as well as other
Asian cuisines. One opinionated gourmet we
know says, "It must be similar to the odiferous K
rockweed that dogs love to roll in." We hope not. In
any case, it doesn't seem to exist today, in recipes or
dictionaries. An old English herbal mentions a Roman
recipe for artichokes, cooked "in a mixture of fresh fennel,
coriander, mint, and rue pounded together and added to
pepper, lovage, honey, oil, and liquamen (a strong; fish-
based sauce that the Romans used in place of salt)."
If you're planning to try the recipe, we wonder ifmiso
might be a fair substitute. Miso is fermented soy paste,
made with barley or rice and available in various versions
in most health food or gourmet stores. It's often called
for in soups and stews and might be worth a try. It's also
highly nutritious -- full of vitamin B and other good
things. Or, for a more daring choice, you could try a bit
of anchovy paste. This would certainly fit the description
of a "strong" fish-based recipe "used in place of salt."
We've just built a new fireplace in our house. Any
advice on use and upkeep? -N. K., Cornwall, N. Y
Answer: For this year, we assume that you're all set
K OLD "FARMER'YS
with a brand new chimney, but in the future, be sure
to invite your chimney sweep to clean your chimney
before the roof is covered with snow. Have him check
the masonry for cracks and assure that the flashing at the
edges of the chimney remains tight.
As for usage, start with a small bed of ashes (or sand)
to protect the fireplace floor. Remember to open the
damper fully before each use; don't close it until you're
sure that the fire is no longer smoldering. Some people
attach small metal signs to the damper arm, to indicate
whether the damper is in an open or closed position. This
can be especially useful if you have guests who may start
the fire. Use a metal container to remove ashes, and don't
let them accumulate too long. Fireplace screens should
completely cover the opening. If you use artificial logs,
use only one at a time. If it's regular firewood, be sure
that it's had ample time to dry so that it won't build up
creosote in your chimney unnecessarily. And don't use
your fireplace to bur large quantities of waste paper or
wrappings, which can easily start a chimney
fire. Keep in mind, too, that colored papers may
contain lead in the inks and therefore should not
This summer I worked in a restaurant on
the coast of Maine. Whenever they ran out of
something, the chef told the waitstaff to "86
it." Where does that come from? -K. T, New Bedford,
ANSWER: These number codes have been in common
usage since 1950, at least, and probably back to the
1920s. The prevalent theory is that they derive from the
soda fountain clerks, or "soda jerks," of America, who
had no back kitchen for privacy from customers when
communicating with their coworkers. Because the easy
shorthand is useful in a busy kitchen, some of the codes
have hung on, even where customers can't overhear the
In restaurants, the term 86 first translated as "We're out
ofthe item ordered." Later, it evolved into bartender lingo
for "Serve no more because of the shape he's in." Today,
it can also mean to cancel an order, to throw something
out, or to dismiss it. Some postulate that the number 86
was chosen because it rhymes with "nix" for no more.
Eighty, early on, indicated a glass of water, and some say
that 81 meant one glass, and 82, two glasses.

Florida Park Service
reaches new heights
in both attendance as

TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection's (DEP) Florida state parks
are celebrating new records from the
2007-08 fiscal year; more than 20.7
million visitors experienced Florida's
161 award-winning state parks, and
nearly 1.2 million volunteer hours were
contributed both record highs.
"Under the leadership of Governor
Charlie Crist, Lt. Governor JeffKottkamp,
DEP Secretary Mike Sole and the Florida
Legislature, Florida's state parks continue
to provide opportunities for Floridians
that are cost-effective and close to
home," said Bob Ballard, DEP Deputy
Secretary for Land and Recreation.
"With an emphasis on affordability and
customer service, Florida's state park
system preserves natural landscapes and
cultural sites, and provides unmatched
recreational and educational experiences
Last fiscal year,
more than 6,000

of work to the
at $22.5 million
of more than
for visitors from the state, nation and world."
Last fiscal year (July 2007 June 2008), Florida's state parks
welcomed a record-setting 20.7 million visitors, a 6.2 percent
increase from last year. Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin
welcomed the most visitors, with more than one million individuals
served. South Florida parks also were popular among visitors, with
Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park on Key Biscayne receiving more
than 890,000 visitors and John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in
Key Largo welcoming almost 880,000 visitors. More than 878,000
guests visited St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach, and
Sebastian Inlet State Park in Melbourne Beach served more than
830,000 visitors. Based on the National Park Service's Money
Generation Model, these visitor numbers generated more than $1
billion for Florida's economy last fiscal year.
In addition, Florida State Parks celebrated a record number
of volunteer hours contributed. Last fiscal year, more than 6,000
park volunteers contributed an all-time high of almost 1.2 million
hours of work to the State, valued at $22.5 million an increase of
more than 121,000 hours from the previous fiscal-year. Volunteers
contribute in a variety of ways to help maintain the natural beauty of
Florida's beaches, waterways and trails, participating as interpreters,
educators, tour guides, greeters, landscape artists, and wildlife
and resource custodians. The work of Florida's park volunteers is
equivalent to 555 full-time employment positions.
"State parks provide numerous opportunities for Florida's citizens
to get involved in their communities," said Florida Park Service
Director Mike Bullock. "The contributions of park volunteers help
make Florida's state parks a place where families and individuals
can experience Florida's rich. and diverse natural and cultural
"Florida's tourism industry is pleased but not surprised by the
record number of people from throughout the world who enjoy our
beautiful state parks," said Richard Goldman, Senior Vice President
ofAmelia Island Plantation and VISIT FLORIDA Board Chairman.
"Florida's park system provides natural beauty and wide-ranging
activities that enable it to stand as not only a thriving and important
element of F'lorida tourism, but also as a shining example of state
pride and history."
The first two-time Gold Medal winner honoring the nation's best
state park service, Florida's state park system is one of the largest
in the country with 161 parks spanning almost 700,000 acres and
100 miles of sandy white beach. From swimming and diving in
Florida's rivers and springs to birding and fishing or hiking and
riding on natural scenic trails, Florida's state parks offer, year-
around outdoor activities for all ages. Battle re-enactments and
Native American festivals celebrate Florida's unique history, while
art shows, museums and lighthouses offer a window into Florida's
cultural heritage. Florida's state parks are also home to the 2008
Best Beach in the nation, Caladesi Island State Park, located off the
coast of S6uthwest Florida in Pinellas County.

The subpoenas are scheduled to be hand delivered to the
terminals, and they are seeking records to determine whether
any of them illegally increased the wholesale prices that were
passed on to retail gas stations and ultimately their customers.
The subpoenas call for the records to be provided to Bronson's
office in seven days.
"It's critical that we go to the source," Bronson said. "A
number of gas stations are claiming that they are only passing
on increases that they have had to pay, so it is vital to examine
where these price increases originated."
Under state law, it is unlawful to charge excessive prices for
essential items -- including gasoline, water, ice, lumber, batteries
and shelter -- following the declaration of a state of emergency
unless the increases in the amount charged are attributable to
additional costs incurred by those supplying the items.
Individuals or businesses found to have engaged in price-
gouging face fines up to $1,000 per violation, or up to a
maximum file of $25,000 a day.
Meanwhile, more than 2,300 price-gouging calls were
received by Bronson's office during the last three days, and the
volume of calls remains heavy.
Consumers who have been the victims of price-gouging or
have witnessed such activity are encouraged to call Bronson's
toll-free hotline at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-800-435-7352).

Vote for Jimmy "Jim"
of Calhoun County
I am Jimmy "Jim" Marshall and I am a candidate for
Superintendent of Schools in Calhoun County.
I am running for the position of Superintendent and
not against Ms. Neves or Mr. McClellan. I believe that
our schools are doing a good job, but that they can do
a much better job when it comes to resources and ac-
countability to the people of Calhoun County.
As Superintendent I will strive to keep all stake hold-
ers involved in our children's education. I do not believe
that one or two people should decide what is best for our
children and taxpayers. I propose to have an Education
Over-site board -that will work closely with the district of-
fice, schools and taxpayers of the county. This board will
be made up of one teacher from each school, the PTO
president of each school and a member from the commu-
nity selected by each district school board member. The
committee will be chaired by the Assistant Superinten-
dent. I would also like to have a central hiring committee
that would be responsible for hiring of highly qualified in-
dividuals. This would ensure that each and every person
who applies for a position in Calhoun County would.be
given the same opportunity. Our school district needs to
hire the best qualified and verified teachers it can.
I am against consolidation for our schools. 1 believe
that our school system the way it is now is the best fit for
Calhoun County. If we consolidate I feel that we would
be doing Blountstown and Altha a great disservice and
remove the community pride they now have. The peo-
ple of Calhoun County deserve better and I will strive to
make the school system here one that we will be proud
of and others will want to emulate.
I ask for your support and vote on November 4. If you
have any questions, suggestions or ideas and would like
to talk with me, call me at 674-5807. I will be knocking
on doors and asking for your support over the next few
weeks. I know that I can not reach everyone but I do
plan on seeing as many people as possible. If you really
want me to visit with you, call me at the number above.
Thanks and God bless each one of you.

Summer's officially over even
though you can't tell 'cause it's
still so hot and sticky outside.
We've finished our preseason
scouting and hung our tree stands
along well-traveled deer trails,
hopefully next to a mature oak tree
that'll begin dropping acors soon.
Finally the time of year we've
been waiting for is here the
beginning of football season, and
better yet, opening day of hunting
season, specifically archery.
Archery season provides a
great opportunity to take a trophy
whitetail and is arguably one of
the best times to do so, along
with hunting the rut. If you're
stealthy enough and have done
your homework, you've got a good
chance of having a nice one walk
out in front of you.
Florida's divided into thiee
hunting zones, and you'll need
to know which zone you'll be
hunting in, because season dates
Hunting season comes in first
in the South Hunting Zone, where
archery season begins Sept. 6 and
ends Oct. 5. Next up is the Central
Zone, which runs Sept. 20 Oct.
19. In the Northwest Hunting
Zone, archery season begins Oct.
18 and ends Nov. 16.
To hunt during archery season,
you'll need a Florida hunting
license and an archery permit.
If you're a Florida resident,
a hunting license costs $17.
Nonresidents may pay $46.50 for
a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12
months. The archery permit costs
$5 for in-state and out-of-staters.
Anyone planning to hunt
one of Florida's many wildlife
management areas (WMAs) must
OUT TA' THE1
By Tm yYowtg
purchase a management area
permit for $26.50.
All of these licenses and
permits are available at county tax
collectors' offices, retail outlets that
sell hunting and fishing supplies, or
by calling toll-free 1-888-HUNT-
FLORIDA or clicking www.
The most common game to take
during archery season are deer
and wild hog. During this period,
deer of either sex are legal game,
regardless of antler size (except
for spotted fawns). The daily bag
limit on deer is two. Bag limits on
WMAs can differ, so consult the
area's brochure first.
Wild hogs are considered
livestock on private lands and -
with landowner permission- can
be hunted year-round with no bag
or size limits. On most WMAs,
there's no bag or size limits, and
hogs are legal to take during any
hunting season except, spring
turkey. On a few WMAs, limits
do apply, so again check the area
In addition to hunting big game,
it's also legal to shoot gobblers and
bearded turkeys during archery
season. Only one can be taken
per day and there's a two-bird
fall-season limit. It's against the
law to hunt turkeys in Holmes
County during this period, and
you can't shoot turkeys while
they're on the roost, over bait,
when you're within 100 yards of a
game-feeding station when bait is
back a string
present or with the aid of recorded-
If you're quite the marksman,
gray squirrel, quail and rabbit are
three other species legal to take
during archery season, and there's
a daily bag limit of 12 for each.
Only bows may be used during
archery season no crossbows
allowed, except for hunters with
a disabled crossbow permit. Bows
must have a minimum draw weight
of 35 pounds, and hand-held
releasesare permitted. For hunting
deer, hog and turkey, broadheads
must have at least two sharpened
edges with a minimum width of
Legal shooting hours are a half-
hour before sunrise to a half-hour
after sunset. Except for turkeys,
you're permitted to take resident
game over corn or soybeans on
private land. It's against the law
to use such bait on WMAs.
Some things you can't do during
archery season include possessing
firearms, using explosive or
drug-injecting arrows, using
bows equipped with electronic
computational or laser sights and
possessing a bow on an airboat in
You can't use dogs to hunt deer
or hogs during archery season,
but you can use bird dogs if quail
hunting. Otherwise, the only time
you can have a dog in the woods
while hunting is when it's on a
leash and you're using it to trail
Here's hoping all your
preparation and persistence pays
off and wishing you luck on taking
that monster buck. As always,
have fun, hunt safely and ethically,
and we'll see you in the woods!

Blountstown Tigers fall
to West Gadsden 34-10
by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
The Blountstown Tigers turned the ball over six times
leading to 17 West Gadsden points as the BHS lost to West
Gadsden 34-10 in high school football action.
West Gadsden struck first with a field goal to take a three
point lead. The field goal came after the visiting Panthers
partially blocked a BHS punt.
The Tigers first points of the night came on a safety
when Chase Johnson made a tackle in the end zone to make.
the score 3-2. The Tiger defense also scored the lone BHS
touchdown of the night when Jeremy Watson returned a
West Gadsden fumble for a touchdown. Heath Bailey
scored a two point conversion to give BHS a 10-3 lead.
West Gadsden scored next on a run from midfield to
tie the game.
BHS Head Coach Greg Jordan said the story of the
night was turnovers.
"We had two fumbles that weren't caused by contact,"
he said. "We had four fumbles and two interceptions that
really made it tough to win."
With the game tied at ten each coming out of the half
the Tiger defense kept the game close, but the BHS offense
couldn't punch the ball into the end zone through a large
West Gadsden defense. West Gadsden took advantage
of Tiger miscues and penalties to score 24 fourth second
Jordan said losses are frustrating, but he was quick to
add-that the Tigers have a very tough early season schedule
that could pay off for the team later on in the season.
"When you look at the first half of our schedule we don't
have a single rest game," Jordan said. "When we look back
I think we are going to see we learned a lot from these
games. We've got some kids that are playing extremely
hard that are doing their job, and some that have got to
start doing their job a little better, but either way we've
got enough senior leadership we ought to be able right the
ship if the kids want to get it done."
The Tigers travel to Port St. Joe to take on the Sharks
The Sharks come into the game with a 0-1 record after
losing to Florida High 34-12 in the opening week of play.

Jordan said that to win the Tigers have to cut out the
mistakes, take care of the football and work hard to control
the line of scrimmage.
Jordan said, "This game is probably going to be decided
in the trenches, and if we can control the trenches we are
going to have a chance against a very strong, very talented

Terrance Evans and the Liberty County Bulldogs tore
through Cottondale to take a 40-6 win against the Hornets
September 12 in Cottondale.
The Bulldogs needed just 1:40 to score the first points
of the game when Evans scored on a ten yard run. The
Bulldogs came up short on the two point conversion
attempt. The Bulldog defense then recovered a Cottondale
fumble on the next play from scrimmage to give the
Bulldogs the ball deep in Hornet territory.
This time the Bulldogs used a pass from Evans to Kevin
McCray to give the Bulldogs first and goal inside the two
yard line. Evans then ran a quarterback keeper up the
middle to put the Bulldogs ahead by twelve. The two point
conversion run was good and Liberty held a 14-0 lead.
On Cottondale's next possession the Hornets got a
good run on first down, but then Joseph Brinkley sacked
the CHS quarterback to force a third and long situation.
The Hornets couldn't convert and were forced to punt.
On the punt a host of Bulldogs rushed up the middle and
blocked the punt attempt. Liberty needed just five plays
to score their third touchdown of the first quarter and take
a 21-0 lead.
The Bulldogs scored on their next two possessions of
the first half and went into the break leading 34-0.
LCHS Head Coach Grant Grantham said he was pleased
with his team's performance.
"We played a good game," Grantham said. He
continued, "I thought having Terrance (Evans) in gave us
a little spark on offense and having Nolan back calling
signals on defense as our defensive quarterback really
helped us a lot."
Grantham also said he commended the play of Kevin
McCray, who graded highest for the team on defense and
Wayne Young, who may not stand out to the crowd, but
"as coaches we know how important the blocking he gave
us was on the night."
In the second half, Liberty added a third quarter
touchdown and gave up one to Cottondale.
Evans rushed for 128 yards and touchdowns. He also
passed for a third touchdown.
Keith McCray scored two rushing touchdowns and Kyle
Sapp added a touchdown to wrap up the scoring.
The Bulldogs are off this week and will host Franklin
County March 26 in the Bulldogs' Homecoming contest.

Ben Withers, Inc. encouraged the
council to reject the engineer's
recommendation and accept his
low bid of $17,465 stating that

heard performing after school every Tuesday and Thursday from 3 to
4:30 on the practice field. Ann Marie Silcox, BHS sophomore, is the
drum major and she conducts the band which consists of 23 students
from Blountstown High School and four students from Blountstown
Middle School. This band is tough and firm, but also fun and enjoyable
with the strict instruction from Mrs. Reiter, the band director. In the
marching band we, the Roaring Tigers, expect one and all to be there
on time, ready to play with instrument and music in hand. This small
but mighty band can be heard and seen practicing after hours on
campus preparing for Fridays' games.
we lost our backup quarterback and safety, Taylor Mauck, for the
season due to a broken foot. Hunter was a team leader and our
vocal leader so finding someone to step up and fill those shoes
will be what we will work on this week."
Bobby Andrews was named the offensive player of the game
and Kenya Baker was named the defensive player of the game.

Hosford School remembers Sept. 11
by Principal Hal Summers
Seven years have passed
since-September 11, 2001. I
remember exactly what I was
doing that morning at 8:46. I
remember where I was, and who
I was with. I'm sure that many
of you do as well.
This past Thursday, our
nation and many of our schools
pledged our admiration to those
who not only lost their innocent
lives that day, but also to those
soldiers who have lost their
lives since by ensuring our
freedom. "Freedom isn't free"
may be a cliche, but it's very
true. Our brave and valiant
soldiers put their lives at stake
each and every day. They do
so in order to protect the very
right for us to .worship who
we want to worship, and vote
for who we want to vote for.
They are honorable men and
women and should be held in
the highest regard. Sacrifice,
sacrifice is a soldier who serves
our great country for you and
me all the while knowing that
their husband or wife is at
home tucking their children
into their beds each night, going
to that very first T-ball game
'and videoing the first day of
school. No first T-ball games
or first day-of schools for those
heroic soldiers serving our great
country abroad. They are busy
trying to liberate a country and
stay alive, so they can come
home when the job is done, and
have their children crawl up into
their lap and wrap their arms
around Mommy or Daddy.
Our country is not perfect, nor
is it flawless, but it remains the
greatest country in the World.
We are afforded here things and
rights that others around the
globe are only able to wish for.
September 11 at Hosford
School was celebrated .with
what was called a "Patriot's
Day" program. We heard from
a speaker, watched a touching
slide show honoring those who
lost their lives seven years ago,
and sang a few songs. Never
have I been more proud and
honored as when 317 children,
Kindergarten through 8th grade
slowly rose to their feet as "God
Bless America" came through
the speakers. Some may not
have realized the significance of
their honor and patriotism, but
most did. And by noticing the
lack of dry eyes in the house,
the adults most assuredly did.
Take time to be thankful for
what we have. Instill in your
children the importance of what
happened on that awful day
seven years ago. As we continue
to move forward, they will need
to understand that lesson even
more than we do.

Now is also a great time to
scout your lawn for insects. Sod
webworms have been very active
along the Gulf Coast.
Inspect the lawn once each
week during late summer and
early fall. Look for off-color
areas and determine if these
patches have a ragged or chewed
appearance. Part the grass in
several of the suspect areas and
closely examine the soil surface.
The larvae are small greenish
caterpillars. They may be very
small when young, with a full
sized caterpillar being less than
one inch in length.
Sometimes the caterpillars
are difficult to find, even when
present in damaging numbers.
This is because they curl up
in a "C" shape and hide in the
thatch, as well as on the soil
surface. Small green pellets of
their excrement are also present
near the soil surface and this
material is often easier to find
than the caterpillar.
If all else fails and you still
suspect sod webworms, use
a soap. flush in order to more
thoroughly check these areas.
Mix 2 tablespoons of liquid
dishwashing soap in 2-gallons of
water and drench four square feet
of area with this solution. If any
caterpillars are present, they will
emerge to the grass surface and
can be easily detected.
Start treatment as soon as
these pests are noted. Some
control products include B.t.
(Dipel or Thuricide), carbaryl
(Sevin), bifenthrin (Talstar) or
Triazicide). Always follow label
In Northwest Florida, fall can
be one of our drier seasons. As
the weather cools, the afternoon
showers usually stop. It is still
important to continue to water
your lawn as needed, but the lawn
will need less water-as its growth
starts to slow down.
Continue to apply /2 to 3/4
inch of water when the turfgrass
shows water deficit symptoms.
Do not irrigate again until water
symptoms are again noticeable.
For more information on
watering on an "as needed"
basis, contact your local
Extension Office or review the
online publication, "Let Your
Lawn Tell You When to Water"

k The first orthodontist was Dr.
I Edward H. Angle who limited his
practice to straightening teeth
S; in the 1880s. Traditionally, early
orthodontists did not want to see
Sthe patient until all of the perma-
nent teeth were present in the
mouth, about age 12-14. At that
Dr. Larry J. Cook point, the orthodontist would ex-
tract enough teeth to make it mathematically possible to fit
all the remaining teeth in the arch and move them around
until they were straight. In the 1970s orthodontists real-
ized that by catching developmental problems earlier, they
could, by use of appliances, direct the growth of the upper
and/or lower arches to accommodate the size of the teeth.
That is why your dentist may recommend an orthodontic
as early as six or seven of years of age.
The process of orthodontics is possible because of the
ability to move teeth bodily through bone by applying
physical pressure to the tooth. The bone breaks down
on the side away from the pressure and new bone is laid
down behind it as it moves. Actually, our teeth remain
where they are in our mouths because of continuous orth-
odontic pressures. The tongue is constantly pushing from
the inside, the lips push from the outside. Along with stabi-
lizing positional forces resultant from the bite relationship,
the consequences of all the above is that our teeth remain
in their same relative positions throughout our adult life.
The newest orthodontic development in the last few
years has been "lnvisalign." The biggest drawback to
traditional orthodontics has always been the discomfort
and inconvenience of the brackets and wires that are actu-
ally glued to the teeth. Invisalign is a process of moving
the teeth by the use of a series of removable clear plastic
aligners. This extremely convenient and patient-friendly
technology is very popular because, unlike traditional
braces, the appliance is invisible and can be removed
while brushing and flossing or, unfortunately, any time the
patient wishes. Therein lies one of the only disadvantages,
the patient must wear the appliances for them to work and
the treatment, unlike traditional orthodontics, relies upon
patient compliance. Nevertheless, many adult patients
embrace with the
who would never M
