Afternoon fire demolishes

Hwy. 71 woodframe home


by Teresa Eubanks.
Journal Editor
An electrical problem
in the attic is believed to
-be the cause of the blaze
that destroyed a Hwy. 71 -
home last week.
Mike Bailey said an
investigator w ith his
insurance company told
him it appeared the fire
originated in the ceiling
and "rolled over" into the

most of the woodframe
home that he shared with
Carolyn Norris and his son. 25-year-old James
Michael Bailey.
He said his younger son, Jeremiah David Bailey
was playing Nintendo with his older brother around
4 p.m. on Oct. 1 w hen they smelled smoke. "They
thought the heater had come on. but it hadn't." he
said, explaining when they went to the garage they
found the lawn mower burning.
The flames shot through the roof and firefighters
arrived to find a gas tank near the home "venting
big pillars of flames," according to West Side
Fire Chief Doug Harrell. "The propane tank
was located next to the worst of the fire by the
kitchen," he said, explaining, "It was an extremely
dangerous scene."
Crews from Blountstown, Nettle Ridge and
Magnolia Fire Departments assisted West Side.
An ambulance was also at the scene to make sure
no one got overheated, Harrell said.


The family is
noW staying in a
mobile home at
Lake Myvstic while e
they try to work out
a permanent place
to live and start to
put their lives back
together.
Bailey, who is

counter at the
Blountstown Piggly Wiggly. said he's been
overxhelmded by the support of the community.
"Everybody in both counties have been the most
loving, helpful people l've ever seen," he said.
He said there was really nothing they could
salvage because "What the fire didn't get. the
smoke and water did."
He added that they were lucky the fire broke
out during the day and not \while they were
sleeping at night. "The fire investigator said if
it had happened at night, the carbon monoxide
would have put us out before the smoke alarm
sounded since the fire was overhead," he said.
"I'm just thankful my kids were all right,"
he said, explaining that he's not sure what their
next step will be. "Right now we're just trying
to get our senses back," he said. He returned to
work Friday, saying it helped "to keep my mind
busy."

Man charged with voting in


both Liberty & Calhoun Co.


He may have been registered
in Liberty County, but a Bristol
man who insisted on voting
in Calhoun County as well is
now facing charges for illegally
casting ballots on both sides of
the river in the Aug. 28 Primary.
Joey Harold Bright, 41, told
a poll worker he had the right to
vote in Calhouh County because
he owned land there, even though
he lived in Bristol.
Bright was allowed to fill out
a provisional ballot at Precinct
12 on Aug. 26. He was added
to the Calhoun County voter
registration list and signed an
official Calhoun County Ballot
Ticket, but, after filling out his
ballot, he failed to sign it.
His refusal to sign prompted a
poll worker to set the ballot aside
until he returned to sign.
Bright did not come back and
when the time the ballots were
turned over to the canvassing
board for verification, it was not
counted.
After learning that an unsigned
ballot was not added to the election
results, Bright called Calhoun
County Elections Supervisor
Margie Laramore and became
argumentative with her, insisting
that the ballot be counted.
Laramore called the Liberty
County Elections Office, where
she learned that Bright had voted
there by absentee on July 16.
The Calhoun County Canvassing
Board then threw out the illegal
ballot.


ARREST

REPORTS
compiled by
Journal
Editor
Teresa
Eubanks


The Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office found that Bright changed
his address from SE Wrennie
Moody Road in Calhoun County
to Bryan Street in Jackson County
in December of 2005. Two years
later, he moved from Jackson
County to Cindy Road in Liberty
County. There is no indication
that he has moved to Calhoun


County since that time, according
to the sheriff's office report.
Voting more than once in an
election is a third degree felony.
"We do have safeguards and
they work," said Laramore.
"That's one of the reasons for
the provisional ballot."
She said provisional ballots
have to be verified and poll
workers followed the proper
procedure. "Everything was done
as it needed to be and the ballot
did not count."
But had the poll workers put
the ballot through and it was
counted, the illegal vote would
still come to light. "Since there's
one statewide data base, it would
have shown up," she said.


Man charged with DUI

& speeding at 103 mph

while passing trooper


A man who works at a bar near
the Calhoun-Bay County line
was arrested on several charges,
including DUI, after he sped past
a Florida Highway Patrol trooper
on County Road 274 Friday night
at a high rate of speed.
"He was going 103 mph in
a 55 mph zone," said Trooper
Phil Spaziante. The trooper was
westbound around 9:41 p.m.
when he spotted the oncoming


Attempted sexual battery arrest
A man who walked into a deputy's office demanding to know
"What are you doing?" from a woman filing a complaint against him
was arrested last week.
Garret Lee Brinson was taken into custody on a charge of attempted
sexual battery, burglary of an occupied dwelling and violation of an
injunction, according to an arrest report from the Liberty County
Sheriff's Department.
The victim told a deputy that she was at home late Friday evening
when she went to the back door to check outside after hearing a noise
around 10:50 p.m.
She said Brinson suddenly barged into her home without
permission. When she asked him to leave, he replied that she "owed
him something," she said.
She reported that he backed her to the couch and bumped against
her, causing her to fall backwards and held her arms down while
made attempts to force himself on her as she continually asked him
to stop.
She said he finally gave up, put his clothes on and left after telling
her he would not attempt to see her again.

Traffic stop leads to cocaine arrest
A Tallahassee woman was charged with possession of cocaine,
possession of drug paraphernalia and driving while license suspended
or revoked with knowledge after a Sept. 30 traffic stop in Bristol.
According to the arrest report, a deputy pulled Yolanda Lynn Alford
over after she failed to yield and nearly hit a pickup while turning east
on State Road 20 from Pogo Street around 10:45 p.m.
The woman's car then veered back into the westbound lane and
continued east until the truck slowed down and the car entered the
eastbound lane.
When she was pulled over, the woman told the deputy, "I know
I shouldn't be driving," and admitted that she was on probation and
didn't have a license.
During a search of the vehicle, a straw with white residue that.
tested-positive for cocaine was found in her purse, along with two
.small plastic bags of a white substance. She was taken into custody
and booked into the county jail.


motorcycle, driven by Jessie
O'Bryan of Taylor, Alabama.
"We were on a pretty good
straightaway," the trooper said,
explaining, "I was doing about
45 or 50 mph when we started
closing distance rapidly."
Although the trooper activated
his blue lights and pulled off the
road, the 2005 custom Harley
sped past him and continued on
for nearly three-quarters of a mile
before stopping.
The trooper turned around and
overtook O'Bryan, who finally
pulled onto a grassy shoulder,
and "applied his brakes a little
too aggressively, skidding on
the shoulder and laying the bike
down before coming to an abrupt
stop," Spaziante said.
The trooper caught up with
O'Bryan and handcuffed him
after it appeared he was trying to
flee the scene on foot.
During a pat down search,
O'Bryan acknowledged he had "a
little misdemeanor bag of weed"
in his pocket. The trooper also
found a pack of rolling papers.
The trooper said O'Bryan, who
smelled strongly of an alcoholic
beverage, told him he worked
as a bouncer at-Midget's Bar.
He refused to give a breath
sample to determine his level of
intoxication.
In addition to DUI, O'Bryan
was also charged with speeding,
possession of less than 20 grams
of marijuana, possession of drug
paraphernalia and no motorcycle
endorsement.
The trooper said O'Bryan
was staying with a relative in
Jackson County. He said O'Bryan
was arrested just a few weeks
earlier on an aggravated battery
charge after a fight at Lamb Eddie
Landing with an ex-roommate
after hitting him with a fishing
pole.

Six Wewa teens arrested

for killing two deer at night

on Neal Timber property
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) law enforcement officers have charged six people
from Wewahitchka with hunting deer at night after locating
the remains of two deer in early September in south Calhoun
County.
Whitney Myrick, 18, Jennifer Rhodes, 18, and Bobby
Creamer, 17, were each charged with hunting deer with a gun
and light and hunting deer during the closed season. Each charge
is a first-degree misdemeanor.
Creamer, a juvenile, also was charged with felony armed
trespass, and willful and wanton waste of wildlife, a
misdemeanor. Creamer was identified as the alleged shooter.
FWC Officer Scott Cassels said Neal Land and Timber
Company employees notified him early last month they had
found two large buck deer with the heads removed on company
property just north of the Gulf County line and near J.O.
Hunting Club. Cassels and OfficerAmrie McMillion developed
information that led to the six Gulf County individuals.
He said they recovered an 8-point and 7-point rack and other
evidence from West Arm Creek of Dead Lakes.
The other three juveniles charged in the case are a 16-year-
old and two 15-year-olds. They have each been charged with
hunting deer with a gun and light and hunting deer during the
closed season.
A 12-gauge shotgun was seized and is being held as
evidence.
Neal Land and Timber Company had offered a $1,000 reward
for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever
had killed the deer. In addition, Florida's Wildlife Alert Reward
Association may pay a reward of up to $1,000 to whoever came
forward and provided information about the case.

Teens receive minor injuries in Thurs.

afternoon rollover at Neal Subdivision
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
FHP Trooper Jason King said a young driver's inexperience
behind the wheel led to a Thursday afternoon accident on a dirt
road in Bristol's Neal Subdivision.
"They were going 45 to 50 miles per hour on a dirt portion of
Third Street, came into some loose sand and hit a rut, causing the
vehicle to go out of control. The 1999 Chevrolet Blazer fishtailed
. and then overturned onto its left side," he said. The crash happened
around 5 p.m. in an area where numerous children gather to play
and walk between homes.
The driver, identified as Kristen lurrah, 17, and her passenger,
Kelsey Hicks, 15, both of Bristol, climbed out the passenger's
side window after the vehicle came to rest. Both were taken to the
emergency room at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital, where they were
treated for minor injuries.
The vehicle, registered to Cheryl. Rogowski of Greensboro,
was totaled. The SUV belonged to her son, who had loaned it to
the girls, the trooper said.
Murrah was cited for careless driving

Each episode of
"Extreme Makeover:
Home Edition" is self-
contained and features
a race against time on
a project that would
ordinarily take at least
four months to achieve,


involving a team of designers, contractors
and several hundred workers who have
Just seven days to totally rebuild an
entire.house every single room, plus the
exterior and landscaping.
The lives of the lucky families are
forever changed when they learn that they
have been selected to have their home
walls moved, their floors replaced and even


their facades radically changed. The result
should be a decorator's delight... if it can
be done in time.
Each episode begins with team leader
Ty Pennington's now-famous "Good
morning!" wake-up call, when he, along
with the other designers, surprises the
unsuspecting family with news that
their home has been chosen to receive a
makeover. Then viewers witness not only
the unbelievable transformation of the
house, but during the final and emotional
reveal, they see how the home makeover
has impacted the lives of the deserving
families.
The design team includes team leader
Ty Pennington, with designers Paul DiMeo,
Paige Hemmis, Michael Moloney, Ed
Sanders, Tracy Hutson, Tanya McQueen,
Eduardo Xol and John Little'field. New
designers for this season will be Rib Hillis
and Didi Ayer.

A RECAP OFRE3ENT

NIGHT TELEV SI(- ) OTil R-


They passed their $800 billion bailout bill. Although
some senators who voted for it are now very upset.
They didn't realize what was happening. They
thought they were giving themselves a pay raise.
JAY LENO

The highly-anticipated vice presidential debate
between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin was held
Thursday night. And the big winner was whoever
you already liked.
AMY POEHLER, Saturday Night Live

The most controversial thing Sarah Palin said at
last week's debate was she felt the vice president
should have more power. More power? Dick Cheney
is shooting'people in the face and doesn't even get
arrested. You cannot get any more powerful than
that.
JAY LENO

During the debate, Palin winked, wrinkled her nose,
and gave a shout-out to a third-grade class. Well,
you know, that says commander-in-chief to me right
there. You betcha!
DAVID LETTERMAN

Sarah Palin kept winking at the camera. She kept
winking all the time. For a minute, I thought maybe
John McCain had been captured again and she was
tryingit to send some kind of a signal.
JAY LENO

Congress keeps saying that not only are taxpayers
going to get back the $800 billion,'oh, they're going to
make money on the deal too. Yeah, yeah. See, now
you know where the 'con' in congressman comes
from. That's where it comes from.
-JAY LENO

You know, you see them standing there together,
you've got Palin and you've got Biden, and oh my
God, they look like the Channel 9 News team.
DAVID LETTERMAN

The vice presidential debate between Joe Biden
and Sarah Palin drew much higher ratings than the
presidential debate. Biden attracted viewers who
enjoyed his previous debate appearances, and Palin
attracted viewers who enjoyed the movie 'Fargo.'

We should engage, not disengage, with world leaders


WASHINGTON Nothing so separates the presi-
dential candidates on the subject of foreign policy as
their views about talking to foreign leaders. Sen. John
McCain, R-Ariz., would impose preconditions before
he would meet or speak directly with a foreign head of
state. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., would not. Although
both candidates have slightly modified their views, the
differences remain essentially the same.
At first glance, McCain's opinion appears to be rea-
sonable. Why should the president of the United States
meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a
man who espouses racist and virulently anti-American
views, a man who appears to be governed more by zeal-
otry than rational thought?
But upon reflection, Ahmadinejad appears to be pre-
cisely the type of leader our president should engage. As
is often said, we don't make peace with our friends. This
is why history is replete with meetings between leaders
who are enemies or between whom enmity is present.
President Franklin Roosevelt met with Soviet dictator


WASHINGTON .

MERRY-GO-ROUND
by Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Ci ft


Joseph Stalin, a brutal leader who vied with Adolf Hitler
for infamy. President Dwight Eisenhower, Vice Presi-
dent Richard Nixon, and President John F. Kennedy all
met with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, who famous-
ly pounded his shoe on a desk at the United Nations,
fomented Communist revolutions around the globe, and
eventually placed nuclear missiles in Cuba. China's Su-
preme Leader Deng Xiaping, who was Pres. George H.
W. Bush's tennis playing pal, ordered troops to fire on
students in Tiananmen Square.
In some instances, these meetings proved beneficial;
in others they did not. But on balance, history has shown


that in the realm of foreign policy, engagement is bet-
ter than disengagement. The fear has always been that
such meetings would enhance the status of the foreign
leader, but that is a small price to pay, especially when
the foreign leader is an autocrat not subject to popular
election.
As often as not, dictators have tended to have nar-
row, parochial views of the world. A trip to America can
change that. Yet, our government sought to limit Ah-
madinejad's recent visit to the United Nations in New
York because we routinely do not allow undesirable for-
eign leaders to stray more than a few miles from the UN
building. That is a mistake.
In 1959, Khrushchev was not-allowed to visit Disney-
land, and although it may not have deterred his aggres-
sive intentions, it could not have hurt. What better way
to show America than to allow freedom of movement.
What better way to thwart enemies than to engage them
in negotiations in the free and open heaven on earth we
call America.

Despite flaws with bill, we must act to avert financial crisis


WASHINGTON, DC-
Despite disapproval and serious
misgivings with the changes
made by the Senate, Congressman
Allen Boyd (D-North Florida)
voted for the Economic Rescue
Plan (HR 1424) in the House of
Representatives in order to avert
a financial crisis, stabilize the


financial markets, and protect
the American taxpayers. Earlier
this week, the Senate added $152
billion in tax relief to the rescue
plan, of which $110 billion
was not paid for and must be
borrowed..
"Not paying for our priorities
is a large part of what got us


in this financial mess in the
first place," said Congressman
Boyd. "Instead of working to
make a better bill, the Senate
has made our financial situation
even worse. It defies all logic
that the Senate would effectively
compound our financial problems
in a bill that is meant to avert a

financial crisis. This bill -
possibly the most important bill
that many in Congress, including
myself, will ever'have to vote
on deserved to be considered
on its own merit and should not
have been loaded down with
other priorities.. Unfortunately,
the Senate did not give us that
choice."
"While I am extremely
displeased with the Senate's fiscal
irresponsibility, our financial
and economic outlook has not
changed we are still staring
down a disastrous financial
situation that requires action,"
Boyd said. "The intent of this
financial rescue plan is not to bail
out Wall Street; it is to protect the
regular folks and businesses in
North Florida and around the
country that depend on loans and
lines of credit from banks. If we
experience a financialmeltdown,
we will not have access to home,
car, and student loans, regardless
of whether we invest and even if
we have not made bad decisions
in our own personal finances.
That is an unacceptable situation
and one that would crush the
American Dream."
The Economic Rescue
Plan would give the Treasury
Department the authority to
borrow $350 billion to purchase
troubled assets, which it would
sell at a later date. The Treasury
Department would be provided
an additional $350 billion, if
needed, only after Congressional
authorization.
More importantly, the
Economic Rescue Plan includes
a provision championed by
Congressman Boyd and the Blue
Dog Coalition to recoup possible

taxpayer losses. The Blue Dog
recoupment provision directs
a future President to deliver a
plan after five years to recover
any potential remaining costs
from Wall Street firms, not the
taxpayers.
The Economic Rescue Plan
also: .
Limits excess compensation
for CEOs and executives and
recovers bonuses paid to
executives who promise gains
that turn out to be false or
inaccurate.
Includes four separate
independent oversight entities or
processes to protect the taxpayer,
such as the establishment ofa new
Special Inspector General within
the Treasury Department.
SIncreases the FDIC deposit
insurance limit from $100,000 to
$250,000 through 2009.
"I know that many of my
constituents are angry, and so
am I," said Boyd. "While many
may disagree with my vote in
support of the financial rescue
package, I owe the people of
North Florida my best judgment,
and I believe that a vote in
support of the financial rescue
plan, despite its flaws, to be in
the best interest of the people and
businesses in North Florida. The
consequences of.doing nothing.
would be disastrous for the
people and for our country."
"We have serious challenges
before us as a nation, and this
financial rescue bill only treats
the symptoms of years of reckless
fiscal and monetary policies
- it is the tip of the financial
iceberg," Boyd stated.
"We must also fix our
underlying fiscal and monetary
problems. This President not
only helped cause this financial
crisis because ofhis irresponsible
fiscal and monetary policies; he
also has been asleep at the switch
when it comes to fixing these
problems. The Blue Dogs and
I look forward to working with
our next President to improve
our fiscal and monetary policies
through responsible budgeting
and increased oversight and
regulation. Our short term
and long term fiscal problems
demand immediate, bipartisan
attention from our next President
and the next Congress."

To The Citizens

of Liberty County:

Talquin Electric is committed to providing safe and reliable service
to its members. As a security measure the Liberty County Sheriff's
Office was asked to assist the Hosford office in this matter. It took
only one phone call to Major Donnie Conyers to schedule the needed
security. Talquin Electric made plans to move the Hosford office per-
sonnel to an office in Bristol, leaving only a drop box for payments in
the Hosford office. The members who live in the area depend on the
office location for convenience in making their payments or customer
service assistance. The move would have made it difficult for the el-
derly and others if they had to drive to Bristol, especially with the cost
of fuel.

A meeting was held with Talquin Electric management, County Com-
missioner Davis Stoutamire, Judge Ken Hosford, Clerk of the Court
Robert Hill along with Major Conyers, they encouraged Talquin Electric
to reconsider that move. Major Conyers pledged to continue schedul-
ing security assistance to Talquin Electric. As a result, Talquin Electric
Cooperative agreed to have their office remain the Hosford, with secu-
rity provided by the Liberty County Sheriff's Department.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the effort to keep this office
open.

Butterfly Fest


flutters into its


second year I


Come celebrate the wonder of nature's
favorite quick-change artist the butterfly
- at the Panhandle Butterfly House 2nd
Annual Butterfly Festival on Oct. 10, 11
and 12.
Held at the scenic Navarre Park on
Highway 98 in Navarre, Florida the
festival offers fun for the entire family.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. attendees can
enjoy walking through the vivarium- a
screen structure housing hundreds of
butterflies and the plants they love. The
festival shines a light on the needs and
lifecycle of one of our most colorful
insect friends.
Carefully timed to highlight the seasorial
monarch migration, children will also be
able to participate in tagging monarch
butterflies. Many questions, remain
unanswered about the fall migration of
the monarch population east of the Rocky
Mountains. How do the monarchs move
across the continent, i.e. do they move
in specific directions or take certain
pathways? How is the migration influenced
by the weather and are there differences
in the migration from year to year? We
need data to answer, these questions.
Only through tagging monarchs during
their migration will we be able to obtain
sufficient information to answer these
questions.
"At a time when butterflies and other
pollinators are in serious jeopardy from
loss of habitat and pollution; there's no
better opportunity to learn about ways
we can all live a little 'greener' to save
our local environment and its most
delicate inhabitants," said Theresa Friday,
Extension Agent in Santa Rosa County.
The Butterfly Festival will also include
children's activities sponsored by Santa
Rosa County 4-H.- Adults will have the
opportunity to bring in samples of their
lawns or plants and speak with Florida
Master Gardeners. Butterfly-related
merchandise and resource guides will be
available for sale.
Admission is free but donations are
encouraged and appreciated. Only through
the generosity of our visitors are we able
to provide the community this wonderful
outdoor science lab.

Hospital Administrator Ron Gilliard enjoys a rare relaxing moment in a newly-landscaped area of the hospital.



Hospital moving forward



in so many positive ways


I'm very pleased and proud of the
progress we've made in turning around
the fortunes of Calhoun-Liberty Hospital.
Let me share some- of that progress with
you, and maybe more importantly, the
reasons for it.
First of all, there's our staff. They've
been through some tough times and a lot of
them "stuck" with the hospital through the
worst of those times. They are dedicated,
hard working, courteous, compassionate,
and highly professional individuals. They
have come together and formed a great
healthcare team. I could not be more proud
of them.
Secondly, our physicians need to be
recognized. I often say I can't admit the
first patient or order any x-rays. It must
be done by a doctor. We currently have
five "active" physicians on our staff.
Dr.Iqbal Faruqui, Dr. Misbah Farooqi, Dr.
Cliff Bristol, Dr. Jerry Skipper, and our
newest member, Dr. Joti Keshav are all
exceptional providers.
These are highly professional, well
trained and caring doctors. A community
our size is very fortunate to have these
doctors meeting your health care needs.
Many communities of similar size, have
no physicians. We're very proud they are
on our staff.
We also have a great group of doctors
staffing our Emergency Room as a part of
Southland Emergency Services. Many of
these physicians are now coming to our
ER on a regular basis and our patients have
been very pleased with their care. We feel


CALHOUN-LIBERTY

we have greatly increased the level,and
quality of care in the ER in the past year.
And the hospital would not even be
here if not for our Board members. This
dedicated group of citizens gives freely
of their time, and a lot of it! They've
overseen the complete turnaround of the
hospital once they regained it from the
previous "for profit" operator. Led by
our Chairman, Laddie Williams, the other
board members are Dr. Laban Bontrager,
Ruth Attaway, Marilyn Russell, Edward
Brigham, John Tomlinson, Jr., Rachel
Manspeaker, and Paul Smith.
This group provided sound guidance
and strong leadership through the early
days of taking the hospital back and
continues to do so today. Hospitals are
real challenges in today's environment
and they have made the difficult and
often tough decisions needed to move
the hospital forward in the very positive
manner being described in this article.
Our elected officials at every level,
local, state, and federal, have all been most
helpful and supportive of the hospital,
especially Representative Marti Coley and


Car Show to benefit Christmas for the Children

com.
This is a "Christmas for the Children"
benefit event.


Congressman Allen Boyd.
Most of all however, we need to
recognize and thank the citizens of our
community that have supported the
hospital in so many ways, including the
significantly increasing number using our
services.
Ifyou've not seen the hospital in awhile,
you might not recognize it. We have
beautiful landscaping in our front yard and
patios on our entrances thanks to the Keep
Calhoun Beautiful and Blountstown Main
Street organizations, respectively.
Our lobby is now very attractive
thanks to Waukulla Bank. The Dining
Hall was completely redecorated by the
Blountstown Rotary Club. Our new Chapel
is being renovated by the Chamber of
Commerce Board. We have several patient
rooms that have been "adopted" and either
near completion or getting ready to be
renovated.
Ms. Ruth Attaway's wonderful efforts at
soliciting donations for the hospital have
helped with some of these renovations and
will lead to even more.
.But the most important key is the
utilization of our services. We're very
proud that we've basically doubled the
number of "inpatients" in our hospital
on a daily basis from last year. And
all of our outpatient services, IE, the
emergency room, radiology, laboratory
and respiratory therapy are all producing
record numbers in the volume of work they
are performing.
Of course, this all leads to an
improvement in our overall financial
position. We've almost doubled the
dollar volume of total work generated
on a monthly basis from the first year the
hospital was taken back by the Association
Board. Now, we're working hard on trying
to collect it!
We feel the citizens, (our patients) are
increasing their utilization of these services
partly due to our improved appearance but
also, and more importantly, due to our
improved "attitudes." We've worked hard
on being more considerate and patient
friendly. Courteous, compassionate, high
quality care is our goal.
I've said before, we're not perfect and
constantly work on improvement and
especially when we do receive complaints
or hear about problems.
But overall, we're again, very proud of
our progress. Hopefully this article lets you
know a little better why.

Twenty Saved in Voodoo Country


Fourteen missionaries from
two mission groups joined June
23rd through June 30th to serve
in a combined Medical Clinic and
Evangelistic Outreach in the rural
mountainous environment North
of Port au Prince, Haiti.
Dr. Bill Kepper and Dr. Darreyl
Duggar, along with 12 others,
gathered in Miami for the flight
to Haiti. This trip grew out of
the vision of Bill Kepper, a
Tallahassee family physician and
chair of Covenant Presbyterian's
Mission Committee and Medical
Director of Adopt a Village
Missions (AAVM), and Dr.
Darreyl Duggar who serves as
Associate Pastor for Lake Talquin
Baptist Church and Founder
of Liberty Initiating Frontline
Evangelism (LIFE) in Liberty
County. Both mission groups
are local non-denominational
501C-3 organizations, which
have worked in various mission
outreaches for many years.
Covenant Church received a
Hands-on-Mission grant from
Presbytery which was used to
purchase medications and supplies
used to treat the 650 patients seen
in the primary care clinic over
four days of clinic in the village
of Blanquette. Medication packs
from MAP where also received
by Dr. Kepper and Dr. Scottie
Whiddon which allowed them to
generously supply the pharmacy
to treat these patients who have
no access to medical care or
the resource to pay for it. Much
support was also provided by
Lake Talquin Baptist Church
members and supporters of LIFE
ministry.
Blanquette is situated about
27 Km North of Port au Prince
and about 8 Km up a rugged
rock and gravel switchback road
into the mountainous regions of
central western Haiti. Many of
the patients traveled from several
villages as far as 5-10 miles away
to be attended to by the missionary
staff. After being triaged by a mix
of Haitian church members and
the missionary personnel, groups
of 30-40 patients and family
members were treated to a puppet
show of three puppets singing
a Kreyol (Creole) version of a
popular Hymn, given a salvation
bracelet, and presented a brief


evangelistic sermon translated by
an interpreter.
Next patients crossed the
church yard to go to one of
three medical consultation
stations manned by Dr. Whiddon,
Matthew Sprunt PA, and Dr.
Kepper. Language interpreters
also assisted the providers in-
determining the medical problems
which needed to be addressed. The
patients then returned to the main
church building to pick up their
medications and other supplies.
Medical problems common to
many Haitians that were treated
included hypertension, bacterial
infections, worm infestation,
indigestion, malnutrition, anemia,
pregnancy, headaches and
generalized pain due to a variety
of combined factors were all
treated to the best of the staff's
ability.
In-country support was
supplied by the exceptional help
of long term missionaries serving
God in Haiti with Global Outreach
Missions out of Tupelo, MS.
The service, which was
broadcast by radio over the whole
country and to thousands more
around the world by internet,
culminated a week long focus
on family punctuated by 14
weddings on Saturday and about
30 baptisms, featured a sermon
by Pastor David Heady translated
into Kreyol by Pastor Kelly of the
Titanyen Church.
Trip participants included
Bill Kepper, Sharon Kepper,
Troy Kepper, Leigh Ann Keen,
Matthew Sprunt a recent graduate
of UF's PA program, Darryl
Dieudonne a recent graduate of
FAMU (who flew in from New
York City, and grew up in Haiti
with AAVM teams invading
his home frequently) as one
of the interpreters. LIFE team
members included Shannon
Duggar, daughter of Dr. Duggar,
Rhonda Johns, paramedic, and
her daughter Chelsie Smith,
Ashley Beasley (all serving
as puppeteers and go-fers in
residence), Dr. Scottie Whiddon
and Larry Johnson, a pastor from
Cairo, GA who brought many
evangelistic messages and helped
in many other ways. The clinics
were held in a village under the
influence of voodoo, a practice


of animism which blinds people
to the gospel and binds them to a
"debt" ridden existence.
The group served as
instruments of God's love and
light, to "lighten" their burden
and bring the good news of the
Gospel. The harvest of twenty
conversions (unheard of in
voodoo country), and many
seeds planted in this region will
have eternal significance as God
is being glorified through the
missionary effort.

THERE IS A TIME AND A
PLACE FOR EVERYTHING
Text: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
"There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under
heaven:
A time to be born and a time to
die,
A time to plant and a time to
uproot,
A time to kill and a time to heal,
A time to tear down and a time
to build,
A time to weep and a time to
laugh,
A time to mourn and a time to
dance,
A time to scatter stones and a time
to gather them,
A time to embrace and a time to
refrain,
A time to search and a time to
give up,
A time to keep and a time to throw
away,
A time to tear and a time to
mend,
A time to be silent and a time to
speak,
A time to love and a time to hate,
A time for war and a time for
peace." NIV
Five years ago, I was challenged
to write a weekly devotional to be
placed in the local paper. In order to
share.God's truth with as many people
as possible, one person in particular
agreed to buy advertising space in
the local paper if I would write the
devotional.
It has been my joy and privilege
to share God's truth with you all of
these years. I appreciate all of your
kind words and your prayers.
As with many thingsit seems the
season for writing the devotional is
past. Due to an increase in the cost
of the ad, we can no longer afford to
keep placing the ad in the paper. I
leave you praying that God will bless
and keep you always in His wonderful
love and care.

At a boat launching this
summer, a floral wreath was
placed on the bowsprit. Is that
traditional? -S. D., Newburyport,
Mass.
Answer: The lore of the sea
is not without its contradictions.
Floral wreaths at boat launching
are a commonplace way of
honoring the occasion. The
smashing ofabottle ofchampagne
for the christening ceremony
is even more traditional, and
the flowers are by no means
required.
In fact, by some accounts,
flowers brought on board ship are
considered bad luck because they
are reminiscent of wreaths for the
dead. Similarly, it is considered
risky to invite a priest on board,
to carry black luggage, or to
wear the clothes of a deceased


one. Hearing bells at sea is
sometimes considered unlucky,
lest they be funeral bells, but this,
again, is contradictory, because
the ship's clocks sounded their
bells to signal the changing of
the shifts. Bells from a ship with
good fortune might be brought
on board to bring a new ship
similar good luck.
For luck, cats are often kept
on board ships. If a sailor is
approached by the ship's cat
this means good luck. Another

and 40s. It was located on the west side of State Road 12
North, across from Liberty County High School (where
the Christian Church is currently located in 2008).
Sometime later, a second Texaco Station was built across


superstition claims that a bare-
breasted figurehead helps to
avoid a shipwreck. It is thought
that a vision of a naked woman,
seen at sea, will calm the stormy
waters and safeguard the ship.
Fair winds!
Is it true that Henry David
Thoreau once madepencilsfor a
living? -J. K., Casper, Wyo.
Answer: It's true that he
worked briefly in his father's
pencil-making business, yes. The
man who has come to represent


New England transcendentalism
made his living, however, more
by pushing a pencil than by
manufacturing them. Ralph
Waldo Emerson once said of
his friend, "He was bred to no
profession; he never married;
he lived alone; he never went
to church; he never voted; he
refused to pay a tax to the state;
he ate no flesh; he drank no
wine; he never knew the use of
tobacco; and, though a naturalist,
he used neither trap nor gun."

It was while he was living with
Emerson that Thoreau decided to
make his living by writing. In
1839, he spent a week on a river
journey, rowing a dory with his
brother, and returned to Concord,
Massachusetts in September.
Later, while at Walden Pond
between 1845 and 1847, he
wrote about the experience.
How do you correctly
pronounce "Macoun, "and what
is apple snow? -A. C., Erie, Pa.
Answer: Muh-KOON is
what you want. An especially
good eating apple, the Macoun
is considered an all-purpose
East Coast apple, best between
September and November. Like
all apples, it is full of vitamins A
and C. Macouns are more wine
red than the other reds, and sweet
but tart.
As for apple snow, that's a
dessert made with apple pulp,
lemon juice, and spices. An
egg white, beaten until stiff, is
added to give it lightness, and
sometimes gelatin is added for
more staying power. It is served
chilled.
Don't miss cider-making
activities at this time of year.
Various orchards and nurseries
make an event of it, as do some
historical villages and museums.
Freshly pressed cider is also
known as sweet cider, meaning
fresh apple juice that hasn't had
time to ferment. It's delicious!

Crossbow, muzzleloading and dove seasons are starting


Football season's in full swing,
and the 2008-09 hunting season's
starting to crank up. Archery
season's been going on in most of
the state, and in this issue, I want to
talk about three other seasons about
to start: crossbow, muzzleloading
gun and the first phase of dove.
Crossbow season occurs
between archery and muzzleloading


gun seasons in the South and
Central hunting zones, lasting five
days: Oct. 6-10 and Oct. 20-24,
respectively. In the Northwest
zone, it comes in later, on the
Monday after Thanksgiving (Dec.
1), and lasts one week through
Dec. 7.
The most common game to
take during crossbow season will

be deer and wild hog. Only bucks
may be taken, and one antler must
be at least five inches long above
the hairline. The daily'bag limit on
antlered deer is two.
It's also legal to shoot gobblers
and bearded turkeys during
crossbow season. Only one may
be taken per day, and there's a two-
bird fall-season limit.
Crossbows and bows must have
a minimum draw weight of 35
pounds, and hand-held releases on
bows are permitted. For hunting
deer, hog and turkey, broadheads


must have at least two sharpened
edges with a minimum width of
7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a half-
hour before sunrise to a half-hour
after sunset.
Some things you can't do during
crossbow season include hunting
deer, hog or turkey with dogs, using
explosive or drug-injecting arrows,
and possessing firearms.
Immediately following the close
of crossbow season in the South
and Central hunting zones is the
beginning of muzzleloading gun
season. Muzzleloading season
comes in later in the Northwest
zone and runs Nov. 21-23.
During muzzleloading gun

on private lands, along with
muzzleloaders. On WMAs, only
muzzleloaders may be used.
Legal shooting hours are the
same for muzzleloading gun season
as crossbow season. Bag limits and
antler/size restrictions for game
on WMAs can differ, so check the
specifics of the area before you
hunt.
For hunting deer, muzzleloaders
firing single bullets must be at
least .40-caliber. Guns firing two
or more balls must be 20-gauge
or larger. You may not use
muzzleloaders with self-contained
cartridge ammunition capabilities
or possess modem firearms during
muzzleloading gun season.
The first phase of the mourning
and white-winged dove season
begins Oct. 4 and ends Oct. 27
statewide. Shooting hours during
this first phase are noon to sunset,
and there's a new, 15-bird daily bag
limit this year.
The only firearm you're allowed
to hunt doves with is a shotgun no
larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns
must be plugged to a three-shell
capacity.
Some things you can't do while
dove hunting are using rifles,
pistols or crossbows; shooting from
a moving vehicle; or herding or
driving doves with a vehicle.
In addition to a Florida hunting
license, you'll need a $5 crossbow
permit to hunt during crossbow
season. A $5 muzzleloading gun
permit is needed to hunt during
muzzleloader season, and you'll
need a no-cost-migratory bird
permit if you're going to hunt
doves. If you hunt on a WMA,
you must have a management area
permit that costs $26.50.
. All are available at county tax
collectors' offices or license agents
orby calling toll-ree 1-888-HUNT-
FLORIDA or clicking www.
wildlifelicense.com.
So if you're going after that
monster buck during the crossbow
and muzzleloading gun seasons
or dove hunting with friends and
family, I hope I've helped explain
the rules and regulations on some
of Florida's hunting seasons.

Gators & croc
One Jacksonville man was
arrested, and a warrant was
issued for a second suspect
for keeping four alligators and
a crocodile at their Bayard
residence.
An anonymous tip led
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators to the back
Syard of Robert S. Hayes, 55, and
Scott Hayes, 26.
"When we responded to the
residence, there were alligators
and a crocodile in a concrete fish'
pond with a 3-foot fence around
it," said FWC Investigator Kevin
Larson.
The crocodile was identified
as a New Guinea crocodile,
which is not a native species in
Florida.
Neither man had permits to
possess the reptiles. Larson,
along with FWC officers Alex
Obritis and J.J. Thurne, caught
the four alligators and the
crocodile. According to Larson,
both men claimed they didn't
know how the alligators got into
the pond.
"Mr. Hayes did tell us they
fed the reptiles live chickens,"
Larson said. "They would put
corn around the pond and then
put a chicken in the enclosure


FWC proposes Gul
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) on Thursday proposed
rule amendments for gag grouper
in Gulf of Mexico state waters
to be consistent with anticipated
regulations in Gulf federal waters.
In addition, the FWC is proposing
to allow Florida recreational
anglers to harvest more red
grouper in Gulf state waters.
A recent stock assessment
indicated that Gulf gag grouper is
undergoing overfishing (excessive
harvesting-pressure) and harvest
levels must be reduced. Interim
federal regulations to address
this situation are expected to be
implemented in January in Gulf
waters beyond nine nautical
miles offshore, and the FWC
is proposing gag grouper rule
amendments for state waters that
are consistent with the federal
regulations.
These rules would establish a
two-fish per person recreational
daily bag limit for gag grouper
within the five-grouper aggregate
limit in Gulf state waters, and
prohibit the recreational harvest
of gag grouper from Gulf state
waters from Feb. 1 through March
31. Currently, recreational fishers
in the Gulf are allowed to keep
up to five gag grouper daily, and
there is no recreational closed
season.
The FWC is also proposing
a rule amendment that would
increase the recreational daily bag
limit'for red grouper in Gulf state
waters from one fish per person


found in Jacksonville home

to eat the corn. The gators and
crocodile would then eat the
chicken."
Additional information
developed during the
investigation indicated the
alligators were from the wild,
and the crocodile may have been
stolen from the St. Augustine
Alligator Farm, according to
FWC investigators.
Larson met David Drysdale,
the owner of the alligator farm,
who explained that if the animal
had come from the alligator
farm, its staff could identify it.
The value of the crocodile was
estimated at about $2,500.


"The crocodile was positively
identified as belonging to the
farm," Larson said.
The crocodile was returned
to the alligator farm, where the
alligators were also delivered
for safekeeping.
Robert Hayes was arrested
Sept. 23 and charged with
four misdemeanor counts of
possession of an American
alligator and one felony charge
of possessing a crocodile.
Scott Hayes is still at large.
The warrant issued for his arrest
lists the same five charges.
The investigation into the theft
of the crocodile is ongoing.
"Working closely with
concerned and knowledgeable
citizens frequently leads to
more successful resolution
of cases," said. Capt. Marty
Redmond, FWC investigations
supervisor.
Anyone with information
about this case or other wildlife
law violations is encouraged to
call 1-888-404-FWCC (3922).
Wildlife law violations also can
be reported online at MyFWC.
com/law/Alert/.
Callers can remain anonymous
and may be eligible for a reward
if the information results in an
arrest.

To the editor:
We are writing
this letter in hopes
that the people of
Calhoun County
will know that they
pay taxes to people
that don't do their
job and don't keep


SPEAI
WITH A LETTER T
Write: The Calhoun
P.O. Box 536, B


the taxpayers informed. We live on McKenzie
Blvd. and have had problems with our road and
drainage. When our commissioner was elected
he put a culvert in and took care of our problem.
Then the county decided to fix our road and make
it better, they cut down our trees and widened the
road and built it up. They also put another culvert
in front of our house. When they shot the elevation
to build up the road it was done wrong, which they
admitted to. Now all the water that comes from 1/2
mile down the road stands in front of our house.
when it rains.
I called our commissioner and was told that they
were backed up with putting lime rock on the roads


Sand would take care of
Sas soon as they were
finished with that.
PO THE EDITOR That has been almost
-Liberty Journal a year ago and my
problem is still here.
rStol 32321 I would like to know
why these people we
elect and pay salaries with
our tax money can't fix problems they have made
and be accountable for them.
Don't count on their promises because it doesn't
happen. I don't know if my problem will ever get
fixed because when I call the Road Department there
is never anyone there that can talk to me.
They are talking about paving the road now and
if this doesn't get fixed I will forever have problems
with standing water and mosquitoes.
We ride down some road that have been redone
and they are really nice and we wonder why ours
is such a mess. If anyone knows when our problem
may get fixed or what is going on.
Earl and Barbara Burke, Calhoun County


Puppies needlessly killed, left in ditch


To the editor:
Louisiana has a motto on their
license plates: "The "Sportsman's
Paradise." I had a brother-in-
law who lived and worked
there for many years. He would
quickly have disagreed with
you and stated right away that
Liberty County is in fact the real
"Sportsman's Paradise." I could
never find any disagreement
with him on that issue. He and
I had the opportunity to travel
outside the United States into
South America where fishing
and hunting also abounds. Didn't
matter, he was quick to say he
had found Paradise in Liberty
County. In the years he lived here,
we conversed many times on this
issue, and he developed more
friends here than I ever have,
even as a resident since 1974.
Mvy mother was born here, yet his
recognition and love for what we
have even exceeded mine.
I have always been the one to
step back and look at situations
out of view from the trees. I
do love this area and how truly
precious it is.


-We have fought big business,
when they promised money and
recognition for our county. For
many years the natural resources
we have here have brought pride
and a means of income and
notoriety as being one of the most
special rural areas in the state of
Florida. We as residents recognize
what Liberty County is really all
about faith, friends, where a
handshake really does matter in
business, and an area that invites
all those who love the outdoors,
hunting, fishing, camping, and a
special regard for all life to come
here and enjoy it.
With all of God's creations
there are some thorns and noxious
weeds to deal with. Here they
walk upright on two legs. Like a
beautiful garden left unattended
the weeds appear. They bring
with them a stench of disregard
for what is truly wonderful.
Last weekend, on Summers
Road, a resident detected an odor
in the air, and went to investigate.
There in the ditch, were the
remains of two small beagle
puppies. Someone felt two 25


cent bullets were the answer to
a problem. This is not to point a
finger at all of us who hunt and
have dogs. There are dog owners
who take care and great pride in
their dogs.
They respect the unique
abilities the different breeds
have instinctively in them. It is
exciting to hear them as they give
out their barks and howls as they
give chase.
It is also incredible at the
special talents the have. Search
and Rescue dogs actually get
depressed if they can't please
their owners in a task. There are
dogs for tracking and finding
cadavers. These are dogs who
are called upon in times of crisis.
There was a dog who was trained
to help beekeepers find problems
in their hives.
Dogs have proven successful
in finding termites and now dogs
have proven successful in medical
research in locating certain types
of cancer in patients.

they were left with after changes were made on their road in Calhoun County.

Tolar School students take part in

annual Research Station program


from the Liberty County
Extension Office
The University ofFlorida/IFAS,
Liberty County Extension held the
third annual Ag Adventure Day
for 4th grade students from WR
Tolar School, on Thursday, Oct. 2
at the North Florida Research and
Education Center in Quincy. The
event was co-sponsored by Farm
Credit of the Northwest, Florida
Farm Bureau and Florida Ag in
the Classroom.
Ag Adventure Day has become
a favorite field trip for 4th grade


students. It is designed to. teach
youth about agriculture through
hands-on learning. "Having the
field trip at the North Florida
Research and Education Center
allowed the youth to see the crops
in the field including hands on
activities. They are learning first
hand where their food comes
from," said Monica L. Brinkley,
UF/IFAS, Liberty County
Extension Director and organizer
of the event. "Using your senses
to learn is very important. Begin
able to see, smell, taste, hear, and
feel will have a lasting affect.
The 4th graders were given a
brief lesson on corn, including its


history and uses; they then were
able to navigate through a large
corn maze. They also learned
about pumpkin varieties, peanuts,
soybean, cotton, and how various
insects pollinate. Students were
given an opportunity to touch the
crops, see examples of products
and by-products made from them
and sample foods made from the
crops, including pumpkins bars,
soy chips, roasted peanuts and
kettle popped corn.
Approximately 600 students
from Gadsden, Calhoun, Gulf,
Wakulla and Jefferson counties
were also able to participate in
the event.

Mrs. Elizabeth Bennett, Reading Teacher at

Tiger program is beneficial to both the teacher and
the student, I believe it encourages the 'Tiger' to
look forward to game day. I enjoy taking care of
my Tiger on Fridays. I can tell he looks forward
to seeing me and seeing what's in his treat bag!
I'm glad that I can give at least one or our 'Tigers'
a smile on game day!"
Alex Deason, a BHS junior on the football team
said the following, "I think it's a great program
because it gives the players and teachers the
opportunity to get to know each other better."
The Adopt-a-Tiger program has been going on
throughout many years and hopefully it will
continue on for many years to come.

Be Smart, Vote Wise

Taxpayers/Citizens of Calhoun County:
As most of you are aware, The Board of County
Commissioners was mandated by Florida Legisla-
ture to adopt a comprehensive plan prior to 1985.
The plan was approved by the Apalachee Planning
Council and the Department of Community Affairs
and adopted in 1984.
The intent of the Comp Plan was to provide guid-
ance for landowners and developers. Since the year
2000, it has become a nightmare.
As a line item in the 2008/09 budget, the Board will
be paying the ARPC $8500, and if by request, the
ARPC will provide assistance with the Comp Plan.

give her team a 1 point, lead, 18-
17. Her teammates responded
and shook off their symptoms of

win.
Again Bozeman held the early
lead in Game 2 until Wiltse put
her Lady Cats ahead to stay, 10-
8, with 4 straight service points.
Christy Simmons followed with

service points to open the game.
Christy Simmons, the fourth
player to serve for Altha in the
game, did work by serving out the
game to help give her teammates

Students (and at least one teacher) from both counties took a turn at the pull-up bar and checked out some of the
Navy SEALS equipment at last week's presentation in Blountstown. DANIEL WILLIAMS PHOTOS


SEALs sail into BHS; 250 students


attend Navy recruiting presentation


By John Crawford,
TALLAHASSEE DEMOCRAT
Reprinted with permission
Youth met experience
Tuesday in Blountstown
when a trio of active
and retired Navy SEALs
(Sea, Air, Land) spoke to
students in the auditorium
at Blountstown High School
during 5th period last week.
Some 250 high-school
students from Blountstown
and neighboring Altha and
Bristol were in attendance for
the 45-minute presentation
which included a pull-up-
bar (Do 20 and you get a free
Navy SEAL T-shirt), a gear
display where students could
try on body armor and a five-
minute promotional video.
The event was the brainchild
of Adam Faurot, CEO of
Titus Sports Academy in
Tallahassee.
For Faurot, a Blountstown
native and former Florida
State and professional
baseball player, the
connection between the
playing field and the
battlefield is a natural
one. "Whether you're
talking about Olympians,
professional athletes or
Navy Seals, the goal is the
same. Being around the best
inspires you to be the best
and that's why we did this,"
Faurot said.
The auditorium, which was
only half-full, was quiet as

A student wearing a weighted vest gets a boost on. the pull-up bar.


Mike Getka, a retired SEAL
with 21-years of special
operations experience, began
to speak, "How many future
SEALS do we have here?"
Two hands came up.
Getka seemed to expect
the hesitant response. "When
people think of SEALS,
they think of big strong
guys made of twisted steel.


We're here to dispel some
myths and make people
more aware of who we are
and what we do," he said.
The film was short, more
of a vignette, and highlighted
some of the more exciting
elements of a career as a
Navy SEAL: fast roping
from helicopters, night
diving, camouflaged faces


and high altitude airborne
jumps.
"Now how many want to
be SEALS," Getka asked. A
dozen more hands came up
and from then on the tempo
picked up.
Students came down,
first in ones and twos to
handle military equipment
or to test their strength on
the pull-up-bar. Some, like
Joseph Sapp, an 18-year
old senior at Blountstown
High, seemed interested in
the presentation.After doing
an event high 17 pull-ups, he
looked on as his friends tried
to one-up him.
"We go .to all these
weight lifting meets and
the recruiters talk to us so
yeah, it's something I'm
thinking about," Sapp said.
Others, not so much. Joshua
Godwin, also a senior at
Blountstown answered with
a quick "no" and a laugh
when asked about joining
the Navy following his turn
on the bar.
"It's true, it isn't for
everyone," said Getka. "You
have to be able to swim 500
yards in under 12 minutes
and 30 seconds, do 50 sit
ups, six pull ups and run
a mile and a half in under
11 and a half minutes. And
that's just to get a ticket to
the dance. It doesn't mean
you're ready."

TALLAHASSEE, OCTOBER
2-Eagles may be on the
endangered species list a little
longer as far as the JV Lady
Wildcats (11-3) are concerned.
Last Thursday they completed
their sweep of North Florida
Christian this season with a 25-
16, 25-16 match.
Game 1 was nip and tuck
until Amy Tharp gave Altha a
13-10 lead andAerial Folsom's 5
straight service points stretched
it to 18-11.
It was a close affair in Game 2
until Folsom got her teammates
"crunk" with her 3 straight
service aces to give Altha a 18-
11 lead. "Big Mo" crawled on
the Lady Wildcats' side of the net
and Amy Tharp made sure she
stayed by serving out the game
with 4 straight service points.
Aerial Folsom was the Top
Lady Cat in scoring with 12
service points and 6 aces. Amy
Tharp tallied 9 service points and
5 aces. Both Nikki Schamens
andAngela Waldron put up 4


service points. Schamens had 2
aces and Waldron had one. Both
Sharlyn Smith and Kimberly
Wiltse were credited with two
points and an ace.
Good serving vanished from
the Lady Varsity Wildcats' (3-
10) repertoire in Games 1 and
2 as they fell to North Florida
Christian, 25-16 and 25-13,
respectively. In Game 3 the
Lady Eagles had a 6 point lead
before their serving begin to go
south and Altha climbed back in
the game. Emily Brooks knotted
the score at 23 with 3 straight
service points. However, North
Florida Christian served out the
game to win, 26-24.
Emily Brooks ledAltha with 8
service points (including an ace)
and 10 assists. Rebekah Wiltse
came away with 7 service points
and a dig. Courtney Harris
and Loni Johnson each had 3

FWC passes rules to thwart illegal

release of nonnative fish, wildlife
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
has adopted new rules that will provide options for unpermitted
owners of nonnative species if they can no longer keep their pet.
"Release of exotic animals by pet owners remains a significant
pathway for the introduction of nonnative species," said the FWC's
Scott Hardin. "As a result, the FWC initiated a series of pet amnesty
events to provide an option for owners of exotic pets to surrender
their unwanted pets to responsible agencies or individuals instead of
illegally releasing them."
The FWC requires a captive wildlife permit to own many nonnative
species, including Class II and III wildlife, venomous reptiles and the
six species designated as reptiles of concern. The new rule allows,
at FWC-sponsored amnesty events, owners ofunpermitted fish and
wildlife to surrender their animals, and for adopters to accept nonnative
fish and wildlife from unpermitted individuals, without penalty. This
addition is an exemption from the current rule.that prohibits transfers
of wildlife of any kind when permits are required.
The new rule also allows state and county animal control agencies
to accept unpermitted normative animals, with the owners allowed to
surrender those animals to the agencies without penalty.
The FWC has sponsored three amnesty day events. The next Pet
Amnesty Day will be at the Jacksonville Zoo Nov. 22, and another
one will be in Miami in early 2009.
The passage of the new rule will help prevent further releases
of nonnative fish and wildlife into Florida's diverse and fragile
environment.

Recently, my husband and
I adopted a large, adult dog.
While our female was always
quiet and reserved, this male is
energetic and rambunctious. I
immediately noticed that he was
not particularly fond of some of
my landscaping .and decided to
add his own personal touch to
our backyard.
Do your pets and your
landscape seem incompatible?
Landscaping and dogs do present
challenges that may require some
compromises. The goal in this
balancing act is to achieve an
attractive, dog-friendly yard.
For pets with sniffing snouts
and hearty.appetites, homeowners
must be careful with the plants they
pick. Use only non-toxic species


But what if you reject the
idea of incorporating hardscape,
sticking stubbornly to your wish
for a "green carpet" of grass? At
the very least, consider switching
to a paw-tolerant type of grass
such as bermuda.
Another common issue are
"urine spots." When you see a dog
urinating on the grass, rush to the
garden hose. Turn it on and bring
it over to the area where your dog
has just urinated. Douse the area
with water, thereby flushing it and
diluting the harmful elements in
the dog urine.
But perhaps one of the most
important things you can do to
ensure a pet-friendly yard is to
control pests responsibly. Use
integrated pest management
techniques, beneficial insects or
bio-rational products when you
can.
If you must use chemical
pesticides, be sure to read the
product label (even if you used
a particular product in the past,
since formulas often change),
and consider switching to
natural alternatives. Many will
specifically state to keep pets off
the lawn or away from the plants
for a certain time or until the
product has dried.
Some of the most dangerous
types of pesticides include snail
and slug bait, ant and roach bait,
ant and roach traps and mouse
baits. Eliminating the use of
poisonous pesticides and heavy
fertilizers is the best way to make
your garden safer for your pets.
Pets are our companions
and deserve our care. Pesticide
products can help alleviate pest
problems in and around the home,
but every pet's caretaker needs to
take the proper precautions.

for your plantings. Landscape
plants that can be poisonous to
animals include aloe, amaryllis,
caladiums, English ivy, gladiolas,
glory lily, oleander and sago
palms.
Constantly scout your yard
for toxic weeds and mushrooms.
Certain weeds, like nightshade,
can be dangerous for both people
and animals. It's also best to
remove mushrooms from your
yard whenever you see them.
Always assume that any ingested
mushroom is highly toxic until a
mycologist positively identifies
it.
In those areas where your
dog has created their own
personal racetrack and the grass
is wearing thin, think about using
an alternative. Install some
hardscape, like pavers or stone,
over the existing dog path. You
can also use crushed stone or safe
organic mulches.
Some organic mulches,
like cocoa hull mulch, contain
compounds that can be toxic to
dogs. Mulch made from cocoa
beans contains similarly harmful
compounds. The smell and taste
of this innocent looking mulch
is very appealing to pets, yet it
can be deadly because it contains
theobrominee. Avoid using this
type of garden mulch if you have
pets.

LCHS cruises over Wewa 35-15


by Richard Williams,
Journal sports writer
The Liberty County
Bulldogs raced to an early
lead and then cruised
to a 35-15 victory over
Wewahitchka Oct. 3 in
Bristol.
The Bulldogs' defense
forced a Wewa punt to
start the game, but the
'Dogs found themselves
in a hole early as they
started their first drive
from their own eight yard
line. LCHS used a key
pass from quarterback
Terrance Evans to Kevin
McCray to keep the drive
alive. Evans was hit hard as he threw, but McCray
was able to haul in the pass for a Liberty first
down.
The Bulldogs drove 92 yards down field and
took the lead when Evans scored on a 22-yard
scamper on fourth down. Mike Lohse made the
extra point and Liberty was ahead 7-0 with 4:09
remaining in the first quarter.
The Bulldogs recovered a Gator fumble two
plays later and then needed just two offensive plays
to score. This time it was Keith McCray doing the
horiors on a tough inside run that gave Liberty the
14-0 lead with 2:36 left in the first quarter.
The Bulldogs special teams got into the act
when Shane Rogowski blocked a Gator punt to
give LCHS the ball deep in Gator territory. The
Bulldogs took a 21-0 lead when Kevin McCray
scored on a ten yard run with ten seconds remaining
in the first quarter.
Liberty added a touchdown in the second quarter
when Evans bounced a play to the outside and-
scored from two yards out. The Bulldogs led at
the half 28-0.


Evans scored the
Bulldogs final points of the
night in the third quarter
on another short run.
Wewa was able to
come back and score a
touchdown in each of the
final two periods to make
the final score 35-15.
SLCHS Head Coach
Grant Grantham said he
was proud of his team and
the way they came out
prepared to play, but he
quickly added he was still
concerned about mental
Lapses late in thefirsthalf.
"Teams in this district
will make us pay for mental
lapses and we were fortunate that we were still able
to make a couple of key plays that kept Wewa from
making us pay and swinging some momentum
back to them," Grantham said.
Grantham pointed to the play of the veterans as
crucial for Liberty and added that younger players
like Jimarez Reed and Jonathan Miller are working
hard and improving each week.
"We've got a lot of younger players that are
stepping up and challenging for more and more
playing time, and that is always a good thing,"
Grantham said.
The Bulldogs travel to Freeport for another
district contest Oct. 10. Both teams come into the
game with identical 3-1 records overall and 2-0
records in district play. The Bulldogs lost to Class
IB Graceville in the opening week while Freeport
lost to Class 2A Walton in their opening game.
The two teams have had two common opponents,
Wewa and Franklin County. Both beat Wewa by
similar scores but Freeport soundly defeated
Franklin County 55-7 while LCHS had to come
from behind to beat Franklin 23-7.

CALUNG ON
REAGAN DEMOCRATS
In this upcoming election, more than most, it is critical
to consider the candidates before casting your vote. What
the Old Southern Democratic party (the Reagan Demo-
crats) was founded on bears little resemblance to the Na-
tional Democratic Party today. The bastardization of the
Old Democratic Party is seen every day in the corrupt liberal
media, the Hollywood left, and hate mongers like Move-on.
org.
Remember what the candidates stand for. The Demo-
crats Barack Obama and Joe Biden believe in more taxes,
more government, gun control, abortion, and appointing lib-
eral Supreme Court Justices. Republicans John McCain
and Sarah Palin believe in upholding the 2nd Amendment
and the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life, fewer taxes,
less governmental control, and the importance of conser-
vative Supreme Court Justices to fight for and uphold the
things that are important to you and your family.
Do you know what the difference is between Ronald Rea-
gan and Sarah Palin? Lipstick. Like Ronald Reagan, Sarah
Palin doesn't care what the media thinks. So, like Reagan.
she can get her message straight to the people, stick to her
convictions and beliefs, and wants to serve "We the People"
from Washington, not promote a personal agenda.
I am asking you to consider the GOP side. The Old Dem-
ocratic Party so many of us remember is not the Democratic
Party of today. Ask yourself what you fundamentally believe
in and support. If it is fewer taxes, less government, the
right to bear arms, the right to life, and other conservative
principles John McCain and Sarah Palin stand up for, why
continue casting your vote on the Democratic side? Fight
against the liberal media, Hollywood left, Move-on.org, and
other corruption that tears apart the values and beliefs so
important to the citizens of Liberty County. Vote Republican
this November.
Donnie Phillips, Republican, Telogia

Shirley Davis, Lila Davis receive Relay's Courage & Hope awards


by Robyn Parrish-Hill
Cancer. Such a simple word, yet
so powerful and complex. It is this
multifaceted disease that has darkened the
doors of millions of people worldwide,
leaving them feeling alone and desperate.
However it is in that darkest hour, upon
the horizon one finds courage and hope
beckoning them on to a better day. Out
of that darkness come stories of courage,
stories of hope, and stories of survival.
Each year the Relay for Life honors
those who exemplify the quality of mind
and spirit that enables one to face difficulty
with out fear and those who through their
tireless service to their community make
a positive difference.
Shirley Bateman never imagined that.
a phone call from her daughter, a nurse,
would lead to the devastating diagnosis of
Cancer. Shirley, a retired schoolteacher,
had always lived an active, healthy life.
Whether volunteering at church, working
on her farm, or helping friends in need,
Shirley was always there to lend a helping
hand. However in 2006, Shirley knew
something was wrong when her daughter
called her after one of her check-ups.
The news was not good. Throat cancer.
To many this diagnosis would be a death

sentence. But Shirley, a true fighter, would
not let the diagnosis get her down. Despite
her age and illness, Shirley never gave in
to cancer. She continued to live her life
normally, continuing to volunteer at her
church and helping others in need.


It was this courageous attitude during
her battle with cancer that led her to form a
Relay for Life team at her church. In 2008
at the age of 73, Shirley and teammate Lila
Davis, worked effortlessly in coordinating
a church team for the 2008 Calhoun-


Liberty Relay for Life.
Inspired by Shirley, Lila encouraged
her church to get involved with the Relay
for Life. Their team, who had never
been involved in the Relay before, was
comprised of the seasoned members of the
church. Lila went above and beyond her
call of duty making sure everything was in
order for their team. Their team managed
to not only stay up all night and participate
in every activity at the 2008 Relay, but they
helped their team raise $3,000 in less than
two months.
This year, the Calhoun-Liberty Relay for
Life honored both of these ladies for their
exemplarily character and dedication to the
cause. Shirley Davis was presented with
the 2008 Courage Award for demonstrating
great courage and determination in her
personal experience with cancer. Despite
the fact that she was diagnosed with such a
terrible disease, she not only led a normal
life, but also continued to help other in
need. Lila Davis was presented with the
2008 Hope Award for her exemplarily
volunteer service to not only her team, but
the Relay as well.
An inspiration to all, Shirley and Lila
prove that with courage and hope that one
can make a difference!

Quincy station gives $2,000 to Red Cross to settle price gouging allegations


TALLAHASSEE Attorney General Bill
McCollum announced his office has reached
an agreement with a Quincy gas station over
allegations of price gouging in the wake of
Hurricane Ike. Kelly Junior #9 will pay $2,000
to the American Red Cross and will reimburse
consumers who were overcharged for.gasoline.
The station will also reimburse the state for the
costs associated with its investigation.
"Businesses, no matter how small, will still be
held fully accountable under the price gouging


statute when we find evidence to support consumers'
complaints," said Attorney General McCollum.
Kelly Junior #9 is an individually-owned station
located on W. Jefferson Street in Quincy.
On September 12, the store began the day charging
$3.99 per gallon for regular unleaded fuel, then
increased the price twice during that same day, ending
the day at $4.29 per gallon-for regular unleaded fuel.
Investigators believe the station sold 2,396 gallons
at these inflated prices which increased its profits
by approximately $1,500 during a three-day period.


More than 100 customers were charged the
inflated prices.
In addition to making a $2,000 donation
to the American Red Cross, the station must
also make restitution to every customer who
comes forward with a receipt in the full
amount the customer was overcharged. Kelly
Junior #9 is owned by S and K of Quincy, Inc.,
who cooperated with the Attorney General's
investigation and agreed to adhere to the price
gouging laws in the future.
