Passenger arrested with 67 tabs

of LSD after traffic stop in Bristol

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Tallahassee man carrying
67 tabs of LSD destined for
distribution at a concert in Panama
City was arrested after the vehicle
he was riding in was pulled over
for speeding in Bristol Saturday
FHP Trooper Jason King made a
traffic stop on S.R. 20, just west of
Twin Oaks Drive around 3:41 p.m.
after his radar caught a westbound
1995 Acura traveling 70 mph near
the city limits.
After giving a warning about
excessive speed and issuing a
faulty equipment citation for a bad
right tail light, the trooper noticed
the driver becoming increasingly
nervous, which prompted him to
conduct a search of the car.
King asked the passenger, 19-year-old John Frank Moore,
to step out of the vehicle before he took a look inside.
On the floorboard behind the driver, King found a
brown box which contained marijuana and a series of
what appeared to be stamps \ apped in tinfoil. The stamps
featured a logo of a skull with a lightning bolt.
When asked what was in the tin foil, Moore replied,
"paper." When questioned about the contents of the box,
Moore said it held "marijuana and acid" and admitted it
belonged to him. He said he was taking the LSD to aBattle

of the Bands show that night.
Moore later stated he bought the LSD and marijuana
in Tallahassee.
The value of the LDS was estimated at $1,340. The 14
grams of marijuana was said to be worth $280.
Moore was charged with possession of LSD with
intent to sell and possession of less than 20 grams of
King was assisted at the scene by Trooper Wes Harsey
along with Liberty County Sheriff's Deputy Wade Kelly.

Boater unharmed in Oct. 9 accident
James Inman Jr., 50, of Tallahassee, es-
caped injury when his 14-foot boat got too
close to a cable Thursday morning as he
approached the Jackson Bluff Dam at the
Ochlockonee River. The vessel took on
water and got beat up and damaged after
a whirlpool pulled it into the cable, accord-
ing to Stan Kirkland of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission. "Appar-
ently, the dam operator saw what washap-
pening and shut off flow through the dam,"
Kirkland said. The fisherman climbed to
safety onto the dam. Officers are shown at
left as they retrieve the boat and its con-
tents. The vessel had less than $2000 in

Resident charged with stealing

utilities through illegal hookup
A Pine Island man who had been staying in a home rent free in
exchange for making repairs to the property was arrested on charges
of larceny and trespass of a utility fixture after he was found with an
illegal hookup to a nearby utility pole, according to a report from the
Calhoun County Sheriff's Office.
Robert Curtis Pelton, of 19054 NE Elm Street was charged on
Oct. 7.
A West Florida Electric employee was working in the area in
September when he noticed lights on inside the house but did not see a
meter box. He found that the seal on a utility pole had been tampered
with and someone had used "copper jumpers" to get power.
After having a deputy document the rigged setup at the pole, he
disconnected the service and removed the illegal jumpers.
A neighbor said that Pelton and his wife had lived in the home
since January 2008.
When a deputy first approached Pelton, he commented that the
power was on when he moved in and said he'd been there between
three and four months. He said the property owner had several people
working on the place before he moved in and implied they must have
tampered with the meter box.
The property owner later told the deputy Pelton had lived there
since February or March of this year and said no one other than her
son and Pelton had worked on the property.

Man arrested

after dispute

with coach
A Crawfordville man was
charged with battery and
disorderly conduct after having
words with the visiting team's
coach at a Tolar School football
game Oct. 7, according to a report
from the Liberty County Sheriff's
When a deputy arrived, he
heard Jeffrey B. Robinson, 42,
yelling and cursing. Several
small children were nearby and
heard the profanity, according to
the report.
Florida High Coach Emil
J. Ganim told a deputy that
Robinson "got in his face and
pushed him" as well as "put his
fingers in his face and touched
his face."
Ganim, who in addition to his
coaching duties is a deputy with
-the Leon County Sheriff's Office,
asked to press charges against the
unruly man. Two other coaches
gave a deputy the same account
of Robinson's actions.

School Board, District 1

Serving as a Board Member at Chipola College has provided me a great
opportunity to represent Calhoun County citizens. During the 6 years that I
have been at Chipola we have completed or renovated the following:

We have worked hard to bring 4 year degrees to Chipola College for our
students. When we received approval to offer these degrees, the name
changed from Chipola Jr. College to Chipola College. This provides those
in Calhoun, Liberty and surrounding areas the opportunity to obtain a 4 year
degree without having to travel to Tallahassee or Panama City. Without this
accomplishment many of our students would not be able to advance their
educational career. The college currently offers eight Bachelor of Science
(BS) degree programs including:

^Business Management
*Mathematics Education 5-9
"Science Education 5-9

Elementary Education
Mathematics Education 6-12
*Science Education 6-12
*Exceptional Student Education

The Educator preparation Institute (EPI) offers Teacher Certification for
those with a B.S. in a non-teaching field.

Danny Ryals has the proven experience at Chipola College and wants to
put his knowledge and experience to work for Calhoun County Schools!

Two-year-old OK after

falling under trailer

wheel during hayride

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Despite a frightening mishap
during a hayride followed by an
emergency helicopter flight to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital,
a two-year-old Blountstown boy
was sent home after a doctor told
his mother, "I'm surprised there's
nothing wrong with him."
Rylan McLaulin was enjoying
a ride with six other kids and
three adults Saturday when he
tumbled onto the ground and was
run over, according to his mother,
Sherry McLaulin. "We were at
my sister's on Hwy. 12 South
in Bristol for a birthday party,"
she said, explaining that Rylan
was on a trailer being pulled by
a tractor that was making its third
or fourth trip around a field when
he lost his footing.

"He fell off the wagon and
one wheel ran over his leg,"
she said. After grabbing the
screaming boy, his mother and
grandmother drove him to Bristol
as an ambulance was being called
to meet them.
Fearing that he might have
suffered internal injuries, an
emergency helicopter was called
to take Rylan to Tallahassee.
At the hospital, the little boy
underwent several tests and scans
to determine how he had been
injured. Remarkably, he was not
hurt. In fact, his mother notes
that while he was frightened
after being strapped down for
the helicopter ride, he became so
relaxed at the hospital that "he
was laughing and giggling after
getting his CT scans."

FHP: Hosford man who drove

into fence died of natural causes
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Hosford man whose pickup went off the road and through a
fence was found dead in his vehicle shortly before 2 p.m. last week in
Gadsden County, according to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol.
Investigators said 72-year-old Curtis Eugene Lampkin died of
natural causes.
He was found in the driver's seat of his westbound 2001 Dodge
pickup on the north shoulder of Interstate 10 at the 189 Milepost. The
truck had driven over a fabric silt fence before coming to a stop.
The FHP report called the collision "very minor" and said officers
removed Lampkin from the vehicle and attempted to render assistance
but discovered he was deceased.
Services were held Tuesday, Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. at the Hosford
Wesleyan Methodist Church. Interment followed at Sunrise Memorial
Park in Greenville, Alabama.
His complete obituary appears on page 22.

Election a test of America's character

This presidential election is about
more than selecting the next presi-
dent of the U.S.; it's a test of Ameri-
ca's character, a test of our collective
honor and integrity. So far, America
has a failing grade.
The financial crisis and its effect
on the world's economy is a very se-
rious issue. This is truly one of those
watershed events which will have a
significant effect on our daily lives

Jerry Cox is a retired military
officer and writer with an extensive
background in domestic and
foreign policy issues. He lives in
Okaloosa County.

for decades to

come. If anyone ever needed evidence that we live in
a global community with a global economy, the rup-
ture in the basic global economic process and its ef-
fect on national economies and individuals through-
out the world should erase any doubt.
While fully recognizing the downside of current
economic events, this is a historic time for America.
It is a time of significant challenge to America, much
like the 1930s when President Franklin Roosevelt
took the reins of American leadership during the
Great Depression which was followed by WWII, a
war that was the most significant security threat to
America since the country's quest for independence
in the 1770s.
America now needs leadership in this most des-
perate of times just as America needed leadership
and a steady hand during the Roosevelt era. That is
what this election is about.
But, as usual, politics gets in the way of reality.
Do the American people understand the significance
of this financial crisis? From the comments that I
hear on television and what I read in a number of
newspapers, I don't think so. What I hear is people
believing that the government is going to give bags
of money to Wall Street fat cats.
What I hear and read is that America is going to
become a "socialist state." People should look up
the term socialism in a dictionary, and if they did
they would understand that government intervention
into the economic process is not socialism. If gov-
ernment didn't have regulations on monopolies and
oligarchies that provide goods and services to the
public, your home or business electric bill would be
whatever the power company wanted it to be.
The reason that I said America has a failing grade

in this test of our collective honor
and integrity is that much of the
presidential campaign is about fear
mongering on taxes and terrorism,
and the fear mongering is working.
Here is an example.
My Sunday newspaper has a front
page, above the fold story titled,
"Baby coo stirs fear of Islamic plot."
This ludicrous story is about a toy

doll that is programmed to say "mama" and make
cooing sounds. As pointed out by the reporter, one
of the local Christian ladies (reporter's description)
believes that the cooing sounds translate to "Islam is
the light." The lady believes that these sounds will in-
doctrinate her one-year old child with Islamic beliefs.
Letters to the editor in the local newspaper are
filled with comments like, "I fear Obama, I don't
trust Obama." Many of the anonymous Spout Off
comments are racist.
As I was writing this column, a retired colonel
friend sent an e-mail with a newspaper article about
the Obama/Ayers relationship. He asked what I
thought about this issue, and said that he was afraid
to vote for Obama. I was a bit surprised because he
is a sensible Republican whom I respect. He and I
agree on more issues than on which we disagree.
One of the reasons that I believe that this presi-
dential election is a test of America's character is
that for the first time in history, an African American
may be the president of the U.S. Is racism and fear
so great in the American people that they can't bring
themselves to vote for a black man because of the
color of his skin?
McCain and Palin, particular Palin, have struck
the raw nerve of racism in many of their support-
ers. It's scary to watch the mob mentality of some
of their supporters at McCain's political rallies. To
McCain's credit, he has made an effort to counter
the "kill him" shouts that are heard and watched on
television, shouts referring to Obama.
I have written many times that one of the strengths
of America is the common sense of the American
people. With America facing one of the most signifi-
cant challenges in decades, it is time for some of that
common sense.

WASHINGTON Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, says voters
shouldn't get stuck in the blame game, and that what happened
during the last eight years matters less than what the candidates
are saying today about what they would do if elected. By that
definition, we should expect a serious discussion about issues,
Instead, Palin kicked off a new silly season in politics, accusing
Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., of "paling around with terrorists
who would target their own country."
Palin was referring to William Ayers, a professor at the Uni-
versity of Chicago, who four decades ago helped found the rad-
ical anti-war group Weathermen. Obama was eight years old at
the time. Ayers has never condemned the violence carried out
by Weathermen, acts that Obama has called "detestable." Ayers
has since been mainstreamed and rehabilitated, if not fully for-
given, by virtue of his academic posting and various non-profit
boards that he has served on.
The New York Times did an exhaustive study of Obama's
relationship with Ayers and concluded the two have never been
close. They live in the same Hyde Park university neighbor-
hood and served together on two non-profit boards. They share
an interest in school reform, and one of the boards involved
overseeing a $50 million grant from the Annenberg Foundation
to help overhaul the troubled Chicago school system. When
Obama launched his first bid for elective office in 1995, Ayers
hosted a coffee reception at his home to raise funds for him.
That's the extent of their relationship.
If the standard is guilt by association, Sen. John McCain's,
R-Ariz., relationship with Charles Keating, the Savings &
Loan kingpin of the late 1980's, was far more intimate. Mc-
Cain was one of five senators investigated for improper deal-
ings with Keating, who was convicted of fraud in the excesses
that defined the decade and cost taxpayers billions of dollars.
Cindy and John McCain took some 16 trips with Keating, who
was a friend and a constituent. A Senate ethics panel said.Mc-
Cain was guilty of "poor judgment" but cleared him of any
The episode was a searing one for McCain. He called it the
"worst mistake of my life," and it turned him into an advocate
for campaign finance reform. It's an old story, and Keating's
name would have gone un-remarked in this current campaign
season if it hadn't been for the McCain campaign going back
to the Ayres connection. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., raised
Ayres first during the primaries, so she's got some of the mud
on her hands. But both these avenues are blind alleys politi-
cally. Voters know politicians spend half their time begging
for money. They've forgiven McCain and moved on from that
long ago Keating scandal. And does anybody really think that
Obama hangs around with terrorists, or that Ayres will play a
role in an Obama administration?
With the country in the midst of two wars and an economic
meltdown, the candidates should find better things to talk about
than tired old relationships. Politics is blood sport, and getting
ahead requires patrons who will invest in you. These are some-
times less than savory relationships. Keating's investment in
McCain was far more extensive over a longer period of time
than Obama's casual acquaintance with Ayres. But in neither
case does the association go to the core of what each man is
today or put up a red enough flag to disqualify either of them
for the presidency.
It's worth recalling that Harry Truman, one of our most
highly-rated presidents, learned politics from his patron, "Boss
Tom" Prendergast, who doled outjobs and favors during the
Great Depression, and got rich in the process. He served time
for income tax evasion and when Truman as vice-president at-
tended his funeral, the reaction was one of shock. A few weeks
later Truman succeeded FDR as president and Prendergast fad-
ed into the history books, as will Ayres and Keating.



Jail Chaplain Francine Fisher is honored

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
There were a couple of surprises
when the inmates in the women's
dorm of the Liberty County Jail
sang three gospel songs for guests
on Sept. 30.
Listeners were impressed and
more than one, including Sheriff
Harrell Wood Revell, teared
up during their performance of
"Amazing Grace."
Then, the woman who arranged
the surprise for the sheriff got one
of her own when she received a
plaque to honor her two years of
service as the jail chaplain.
Francine Fisher spends an
hour every Wednesday with
the inmates in the women's
dorm, holding Bible study and
encouraging them to overcome
the troubles that put them behind
bars. Capt. Fannie Partridge says
the girls look forward to her
"She gets it... she's been there
and she knows the frustration
they feel," Partridge explains.
"The women are concerned about
their families and their children
and sometimes they just need
somebody to talk to about that."
Fisher and her husband Bill
are also the moving force behind

the Celebrate Recovery Program
which is helping many people
- including ordinary citizens
as well as those who have had
problems with the law deal
with their issues and addictions.
Two full Celebrate Recovery
Programs are currently under
way, with ten men in one class
and ten women in the other. The

groups meet on Tuesday and
The Fishers' efforts are funded
by donations to their ministry,
Southern Cross Outreach.
The Fishers also take screened
groups of inmates to church
services each Sunday and several
have been baptized. "I get a lot of
thank you notes from the families

of these girls for giving them
something positive to think about
and showing them a better life,"
says Partridge.
"I was skeptical to start with
about Francine," admits Partridge,
"but she has really proved to be
an asset to the Liberty County
Jail. She really has a calling."
Even when the girls serve
their time and are released,
they're coming back to the
Fishers' programs, often with
the encouragement of their
probation officers who recognize
the Celebrate Recovery Program
as a valuable tool for former
inmates struggling to turn their
lives around.
Among those in attendance at
the recent ceremony was 82-year-
old Mary Marchant, who Francine
calls "my mentor." Fisher says
she is inspired by Marchant, who
has conducted her own prison
ministry for some time and was
recognized earlier this year for
her efforts working with the
federal prison in Marianna for
the past 20 years. She also works
with inmates in two state prisons
as well as local jails.

Car Show raises money

to fill Santa's toy bag

The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office held its annual Car Show
Saturday in Blountstown with 46 vehicles competing for trophies and
the admiration of visitors who came to look over row after row of colorful
cars and trucks. The event raised an estimated $5,000 for the sheriff's
office Toys for the Children program, which provides gifts for local
children who might not otherwise find anything under the Christmas
tree this year. Area businesses contributed raffle prizes, sending
. lucky visitors home with certificates for free window tinting, auto
accessories and meals at local restaurants. TONY SHOEMAKE PHOTOS

Is it true that more babies are born at
the time ofthe Full Moon than at any other?
-M. R., Palm Bay, Fla.
Answer: There are no hard facts to that
effect, although it's one of those beliefs that
won't go away. There are various theories,
and lots of folklore, about predicting birth
dates according to the Moon. The Navajos,
among others, believed that the gravitational
pull of the Moon on a woman's amniotic
fluids increased chances of birthing at the
full Moon. Many nurses and midwives
seem to notice another active time around
the New Moon -- which is gravitationally
Another theory is that women have
certain "Moon days" when they're more
likely to give birth. That is, if your first child
was born when the Moon was 10 days old
(the day of the new Moon being zero), then
your subsequent children will also be born
when the Moon is 10 days old.
Folklore says that a baby born when the
Moon is one day old will be long-lived and
wealthy. To be born in the direct moonlight
is considered unlucky. A full Moon on
Monday, the "Moon day," is lucky, however,
and some believe that full Moon babies are
stronger. To give a baby strength, expose
him or her to the light of the waxing Moon

(during the increase from new Moon to full).
Some say that childbirth is easier during a
waxing Moon, and babies born then will
grow quickly.
Other folklore offers opinions about the
sex of the baby, depending on the Moon. To
have a boy, conceive during the light of the
Moon (from new Moon to full). For a girl,
conceive in the dark of the Moon (full Moon.
to new). Our experience is that babies come
when they're ready, whatever the Moon.
Do those in-tank toilet bowl cleaners
really kill germs? -N. P, Fremont, Calif.
Answer: Various household cleaners
claim to kill germs and, sure, any of the
toilet cleaners, tub scrubs, kitchen floor
disinfectants, and sink powders may kill a
few hundred thousand germs along the way.
But routinely using any of these products
will accomplish little toward preventing the
spread of germs in your household, because
there are germs everywhere -- in the air, and
on every surface in the house. If you've

really got a medical situation that requires a
careful guard against germs, consult a doctor
about special germicides.
Most in-tank cleaners are a combination
of a water dye, a fragrance, and a detergent.
If that's what you're looking for, fine, but
don't kid yourself into thinking that the toilet
is cleaner than if you'd scrubbed it with
the brush. As for the toilet bowl cleaners,
the most effective one of all is your elbow
grease and a good pair of rubber gloves.
Get out the scrub brush and use any liquid
household cleaner. For tougher stains, try
one of the cleaners meant for toilet bowls
and be extremely careful not to let it come
into contact with skin or eyes. The in-bowl
cleaners are generally much more expensive
than ordinary liquid cleaners, so only use
them if the regular cleaner isn't doing the
job for you. And keep in mind that if you
have a pet that might think the toilet bowl is
its drinking dish, avoid the in-tank products



P"Liberty County's first forester, Bertus Eubanksl

written by Iris Eubanks and Teresa Eubanks
With the death of his father, 15-year-old Bertus Eu-
banks became the male head of the family and soon after
that moved from the Sycamore community of Gadsden
County to Bristol in Liberty County with his mother
and his three siblings, Hazel, Dewey and Ronald around
In Bristol, he met Birdie Turner, the young daughter of
County Agent Alexander Turner. Following a short court-
ship, Bertus and Birdie wed January 19, 1917. They had
seven children: Paul, Silas, Doris, Dessie, Betty, Wilhoit
and Johnny. As of this writing in Sept. 2008, all are living
and in reasonably good health. The eldest is Paul, who is
91, and the youngest is Johnny, age 75. All but Dessie,
who lives in Collierville, Tennessee, reside in this area.
As a young man, Bertus was a farmer. Later on there
was a cattle ranch in Vilas, Liberty County where he be-
came supervisor of the ranch, known as, the cow camp.
He held a number of jobs over the years and was injured
during a wreck while working as a mail carrier between
Bristol and Quincy. A Dr. Wilhoit of Quincy helped in his
recovery and in turn, Bertus named a son after him.
He was a member of the Liberty County Board of
County Commissioners and in 1929 he was selected as
chairman. Records show that in 1935 he was Chairman
of the Liberty County School Board. While he served as
Chairman, he signed the high school diploma of his first
child, Paul Eubanks, and his future daughter-in-law, lona
Summers. It is believed they are the only two surviving
members of the class of 1935.
Bertus was hired as the first forester for Liberty Coun-
ty on Aug. 1, 1935. He retired on Dec. 2, 1960. Part of his
responsibilities as a forester was to protect the lands from
wildfires and to restore the forest after being clear cut by
the Graves Brothers Logging operation.
This new reforestation program created a challenge
between the landowners and those who used the forest
for cattle grazing. Bertus made arrangements with most
of the cattle owners to do controlled bums on a part of the
woods for cattle grazing and urged them to plant trees in
other areas of the forest. When the trees were old enough
to tolerate fire, controlled burns would be held there af-
ter cattle owners moved their cows to the young planted
area. These practices led Liberty County to being one of
the great forest areas of the state.
During those years, men and young boys had to fight
fires with hand tools. Getting ahead of the blaze, they
would put it out before it reached hundreds of acres, as
it often does today. Bertus' son, Johnny, attributes their
success with dealing with fire back then to the fact that,
"They were not required to contact Tallahassee or At-
lanta to ask someone who had never fought a fire how
Lto put it out."

banks' primary la- -Born March 18, 1897 to

they were coming for
firefighters. Coach J.
Ray Summers realized what the truck was there for and
gave Joe an ultimatum. "Is it going to be Bertus or me?"
Joe responded, "Mr. Bertus needs me and I am going."
Joe had a great deal of loyalty to Bertus Eubanks; howev-
er economics entered into the picture as well. Firefighters
during those days earned 35 cents per hour.
Being the county's first forester wasn't a one-man mis-
sion, according to daughter Doris Traylor. "It took the
whole family to run that job," she said. The older boys
would help with firefighting while she kept detailed re-
cords of the fire calls, documenting when and where
the fires started, who helped fight them and how long it
Bertus' wife, Birdie, played a major role, helping to
dispatch crews and preparing meals to feed hungry fire-
Her family routine was to prepare breakfast around
daylight. Leaving the dishes on the table afterwards, she
would go to the garden and gather vegetables for the mid-
day meal. While that meal was cooking, she would wash
the breakfast dishes. Dinner's leftovers turned into the
evening meal.
In addition to those three meals a day, she would be
required to pull together another meal at odd hours to
feed hungry fire crews sometimes in the forest but more
often at her own kitchen table. The food came from the
family's own supply of pigs, chickens and vegetables. "If
we didn't raise it, we didn't have it," says her daughter
Doris. "We had plenty of pork and country-cured ham.
We made butter from our milk cow and ground cane for
Those reforestation efforts by Bertus Eubanks and
other members of the forest service and community laid
the groundwork (both figuratively and literally) for Lib-
erty County's manufacturing economy today, as crops of
renewable trees keep loggers busy in the woods provid-
ing raw material for area sawmills and the new Georgia-
Pacific plant in Hosford.

This is one of the many family stories submitted for an upcoming Liberty County Heritage Book to be published at the end of the year.

Why are periodicals called magazines?
When I was in the army, my magazines held
cartridges. -N. H., McAllen, Tex.
Answer: Right you are. Magazines were
originally places for storing gunpowder,
and rather than the small containers you
probably knew, they were storage houses for
ammunition. The word comes a long way,
from the Arabic "makhzan" for storehouse.
Warships had magazines, forts and stockades
had them, and later even small machines had
them. Some cameras have magazines, the
small boxlike compartments for holding
their "ammunition" or film. In rare instances,
magazines might hold other supplies, such
as food, instead of ammunition, but the
military meaning is predominant.
As for periodical use, magazines as
storehouses of literary information came into
common use sometime in the 18th century,
although George Herbert (1593-1633) is
quoted as referring to the Holy Scriptures
as "the book of books, the storehouse and
magazine of life...." well before that. "The
Gentlemen's Magazine" may have been
the first to use the word in its title in 1731,
although it was used in book titles before
then. Readers were expected to stockpile
the magazines, for their future reference
and edification.

On September 18, after
months of emphasizing the
strength of our economy, Presi-
dent Bush did an about-face
and asked Congress for a $700
billion blank check to bail out
Wall Street and put a stop to
the impending financial crisis.
I believe that the President's re-
quest for Congressional action
is a direct result of years of his
Administration's irresponsible
fiscal and monetary policies
that have now come to a head.
In addition to reckless bor-
row-and-spend fiscal policies
over the last eightyears, thisAd-
ministration steered an unwise
monetary policy that artificially
propped up the financial mar-
kets through low interest rates
and a lack of regulation. At the
same time, many homeowners
held the false assumption that
home equity would continue to
rise at unprecedented, historic
rates. The intersection of these
two bad acts is where we find
ourselves today.
Members of Congress from
both parties, including myself,
flatly rejected the President's
bailout proposal. However,
many of us recognized that the
credit crunch is hitting all sec-
tors of our economy, includ-
ing the people and businesses
in North Florida, and swift but
careful, thoughtful action was
needed on a more responsible
financial rescue package that
better protected the taxpayers.
During discussions about
a financial rescue plan, I met
with many economic experts
from all different schools of
thought and ideologies about
the consequences of action ver-
sus inaction. These experts all
agreed that the consequences
of inaction would be devastat-

was to do nothing, could lead
to a scenario reminiscent of the
Great Depression, and this is
a situation in which I believe
Congress had no choice but to
With all of the party lead-
ers and the Administration at
the table, Congress completely
overhauled the President's ini-
tial request and crafted a bipar-
tisan bill that included strong
taxpayer protections and in-
creased oversight. The legis-
lation is designed to allow the
federal government to turn a
profit on the assets it acquires
and sells. Thanks to the Blue
Dog Democrats, any assets that
the plan fails to recoup will be
repaid to the taxpayers in full
by the financial industry.
I supported the first bill that
came before the House of Rep-
resentatives because I firmly
believe that a responsible in-
jection of funds into the mar-
ket is necessary to protect our
homes, our businesses, our
healthcare coverage, our pen-
sions, and our hard-earned tax
dollars. Despite having bipar-
tisan support and being crafted
by leaders in both parties, this
bill failed in the House by a
very close vote.
Instead of working to make
a better bill, the Senate added

$152 billion in tax relief to the
rescue plan, of which $110 bil-
lion was not paid for and must
be borrowed. Not paying for

Elections supervisor speaks up about vote buying & rumors

To the editor:
The voters of Liberty County have
recently participated in the 2008 Primary
Election with an outstanding voter turnout
of 72.18 percent. That is something to be
proud of. However, in spite of the success
in the conduct of this election by this
office, the canvassing board and a winning
candidate were sued under a Contest of
Election for possible improprieties in the
election. On October 2, 2008, that suit was
dismissed by Judge Reynolds.
Now that the case has been resolved,
I feel that I need to address some of the
rumors and misconceptions that have been
rampant in Liberty County and have served
to undermine the voter's confidence in the
voting process.
First of all, there is no way that anyone
can know how you have voted unless you
show someone your voted ballot or you tell
someone how you have voted. There was
a rumor that was spread by an individual

or individuals
trying to
pressure certain
voters to vote
the way they
wanted or they
would not be
Rumor had it

that they can find
out how you early voted so "you better
vote right." They were alleging that our
office was able to attain that information
and was supplying it to them. That is a
falsehood created to control individuals
and consequently try and smear our
office's reputation for running clean and
efficient elections.
Once your ballot is separated from the
ballot stub, it is not possible to connect that
ballot to you. There is no corresponding
number on your ballot and there is not a
hidden number in the timing marks which

are the series
of black
marks along
the left side
of the ballot.
The timing
m a r k s

/ simply tell
the scanner
to look for
darkened ovals. They also tell the tabulator
what style of ballot you have (DEM, REP,
NP etc.) and what precinct the ballot is
for-both of which are legally required in
order to report results.
The tabulator cannot scan your ballot
and take a picture of it. The tabulator's
only function is to tabulate votes cast on
those ballots, keep a count of how many
ballots have been cast in that tabulator
and print the results-nothing more.
Therefore, there is no way to trace the
ballot back to the voter.

FWC has failed to get

an accurate bear count
To the editor:
I congratulate Micky Larkins for having the intelligence
and gumption to go to the trouble to make his bear prob-
lems public. If everyone with bear problems would do that
it would show the bear mess to be statewide, having the po-'
tential to increase the risk to our children, pets and livestock.
That would make it more difficult for FWCC, the legislature
and others responsible to ignore this problem and not stop the
coming train wreck.
Yes, you are right. The FWCC did not count the bear on
your place. Neither did they count the bear north of State
Road 20 nor on the north and west side of State Road 65, plus
other areas in the forest and state, including St. Joe property
in Liberty County.
As of this date, FWCC claims the Florida black bear is
endangered with no data to support that.
The US Fish and Wildlife service says the Florida black
bear is neither threatened nor endangered. In fact, they have
removed this bear from the threatened and endangered can-
didate species list.
From over fourteen years of observing FWCC's bear
counters, listening to their small talk and noticing where they
counted and their recommendations based on their so called
findings, the best that I can say of all that is that the results
are very iffy if not totally wrong.
Many, many years ago game and fish claimed the black
bear was sighted in 64 of Florida's 67 counties. You can rest
assured today the count would be unanimous.
Raymond Hamlin Jr.

Former Elected Sheriff, Leon County,
Tallahassee, Florida

To get to the crux of the matter and
where most of these rumors originated, vote
buying has been a topic of discussion in
many households and behind closed doors.
It is time to bring this detestable practice
out in the open and eliminate it. Your vote is
precious and it is yours! You have the right
to cast your ballot in secret and without
anyone dictating how you should vote.
It is the law!! When you allow someone
to corruptly influence or buy your vote; it
cheapens the sacrifice that many men and
women made for you to exercise that right.
It's like going to the auction block
and auctioning your vote to the highest
bidder. Slavery is dead! Let it stay
dead! Just because "that's the way it's
always been" or "my family has always
done it then it must be alright," does not
make it right. Buying and selling votes,

and its population has now
exceeded in many areas.
My father use to say, "Son,
some things in life has to be
dealt with just plain ole common
I know that since the bear
season has been closed, the bear
numbers have grown, really more
that some have let on. Hunters and
beekeepers know this. They are the
ones who are out in the woods the
most. Game cameras and visual
sighting of bears don't lie.
On one of my leases, which is
around 500 acres, I have witnessed
three full grown bears, one with
cubs in the middle of my four acre
corn plot. I'm afraid to put up my
game camera in certain places. It
has been slapped off a tree only
to land 30 ft. from where I had
it. Hunters have tried to adjust by
hanging feeders high and chaining
drums to a tree, that is if you can
find them after the bears have
carried them off.
Let's talk common sense:
1) The killing of alligators
was stopped only to have the
population explode. After a few
years and lose of lives a season
for permit hunters to take gators
now is in action.
2) I remember when you could
not kill a doe deer, and as a hunter
I understand that well, our deer
herds get to the point so as we
now need to kill does to maintain
herd balance. Permits are issued

upon request. We have plenty of
does, just ask the ones that know,
the hunters.
For at least three years I have
trapped wild hogs on my lease and
I was able to pretty well control
the hogs. But one year I missed
trapping and you guessed it, we
have hogs everywhere.
Several years ago, bear hunting
was stopped and folks we now
have seen bear numbers multiply.
There are a few things we need
to know about bears. Bears pretty
much stay in an area where they
will get enough food to live on.
However, as the numbers grow
bears become competitive when
food is short. Usually, two thing
will make a bear hunt a new
1) Lack of food.
2) Breeding cycle.
Not every year is there a good
crop of acoms or a good crop of
palmetto berries, which means
bears have to resort to other
foods. Bears will resort to other
foods like yellow jacket nest,
grub worms out of rotting wood
and stumps, and believe me when
bears are over-populated, there
is not enough of grub worms to
go around. Therefore, the bears
must search for a new area to get
food. This many times means the
bear may cross a major highway
hunting a new source of food.
I know it's been said, there is no
record in the state of Florida of a

person being attacked and killed
by a bear. I have had friends that
have hit a bear with their vehicle,
some were totaled. These friends
have been bruised, cut and only by
the grace of God were not killed.
As the uncontrolled bear numbers
increases, chances for losing a live
increases. I say all of this to say to
the Florida Wildlife Commission,
people who love flowers and
birds and to the hunters, there is
a middle ground here. We could
all work together to keep the bear
problem from getting worse.
I suggest: Issue one bear permit,
per lease per year, for two years in
a row. Oh, I know what many of
you are thinking already them
hunters will kill all our bears.
But folks, it don't work that way.
Every lease that gets a bear permit,
not everyone will fill their tag.
Bears are smart animals, you just
don't walk out there and fill your
tag. TheFWC could start the bear
season after the regular hunting
season goes out, setting the time as
not to interfere with spring turkey
season. On leases that are "still
hunted only," bait drums could
be used. On leases that are "dog
hunted," let them hunt their bear
with dogs if they desire.
Now, after two years, let's do
a bear survey. (Ask the hunters
and beekeepers.) The FWC can
manage a short bear season more
easily if it is a bear season only.
Once the bear numbers are brought

within reason there could be a bear
tag lottery a limited number of
bear permits that all leases plus
those that hunt in the national
forest would draw for each year.
Now for those that drew a bear
tag one year their names would
be excluded the next year, so as
those clubs what did not draw a tag
would have a greater opportunity

to be drawn.
By working together we may
not solve all our problems with
bears, but one thing for sure we
will never know until we at least
try. I assure you even with bear
management, "Flowers will still
thrive and the bear will survive."

*Another one of my opponents has talked about drugs and has said that we are soft on
drugs. We are not soft on drugs. The circuit court docket of October 6, 2008 had 29
people charged with 43 counts of drug crimes. Most of our dockets are like this. Liberty
N County, like every other county in Florida, has drugs. We are working to eradicate them.
We will continue to work as hard as our resources will permit. If you have information
about drugs, please call me so we can investigate the information.

My efforts will be directed toward protecting our way of life and improving our quality of life. I will protect our county.

Erma Jean O'Bryan has always had a passion for antiques while her sister, Gloria Jean
Messinger, loves to cook and share her flavorful desserts. The two sisters have combined
their efforts with the recent opening of Erma Jean's Antiques & Gifts on Chester Street in
Hosford, where they sell everything from luscious layer cakes to the plates you can serve it
on. The antique shop is in the 100-year-old woodframe building that was once home to their
grandparents, Luther and Verdie Alford. The new business is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Wednesday through Friday and from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday. The shop is filled with
country-style accents, featuring everything from a washboard on the wall to stacks of color-
ful quilts. There is also a large selection of glassware and collectible dishes.

Opportunity Florida has
announced that the second their Exporting 101
series will take place on Friday,
Oct. 17, 10 a.m. to noon Central,
in the Community Room at the
One Stop Career Center.
The first workshop centered
around the reasons a business
should considering moving into
the international market and
the accompanying research and
resources available to them. Those
who attended found it to be
extremely valuable and helpful.
The upcoming workshop
will focus on the logistics of
international marketing. That is,
once your company has decided
to "go global", what steps they
would take in areas such as
distribution of their product,
which foreign markets to target
and how to establish a presence
in these markets.
Those interested need not
have attended the first workshop
to understand and benefit from
this one. The workshop is free
of charge, however, please call
ahead to say if you plan to attend
at 850-718-0453. The One Stop
is located at 4636 Highway 90 in

However, a deputy can use that of-

Dental Procedures
& Antibiotic

Over the last 30 years the regimen
for protecting individuals with certain .
histories of medical conditions prior
to receiving invasion medical/dental -.'
procedures has changed dramatically.
For all these years, dentists have pro-
vided antibiotics for patients with car-
diac challenges to prevent bacterial Dr. Larry J. Cook
endocarditis, a possible infection of
the heart. The subject has been clouded with views that conflict
based on scientific evidence, observation, expert opinion, patient
fears when giving these prophylactic antibiotics. Over the years
the American Heart Association (AHA) has changed the recom-
mendations for prophylactic antibiotic coverage that is proposed
for people with certain heart conditions. The AHA has also re-
vised the spectrum of who should be considered for coverage of
antibiotics. Over the last 30 years the most common and recom-
mended covered people were those with a history of heart and/or
lung devices, prosthetic joints, nonvascular shunts, organ trans-
plants, bone marrow transplants, vascular grafts and shunts,
non-dental implants, head & neck radiation therapy, sickle cell
anemia, rheumatic heart disease, mitral value prolapse, and im-
mune system suppression.

Most recently, the American Heart Association after years of
research has dramatically changed their recommendations for
prophylactic antibiotic therapy prior to dental procedures. The
evidence supporting the premedication is scanty at best and the
risk posed by the antibiotics may outweigh their potential value.
Antibiotic use is still recommended for a few conditions, but the
research evidence indicates we have been over treating with
prophylactic antibiotics.

Currently the AHA and the America Dental Association (ADA) no
longer recommend preventive antibiotics for dental patients with:
mitral value prolapse, rheumatic heart disease, bicuspid value
disease, calcified aortic stenosis and for most congenital heart
conditions. The AHA and the ADA still recommended prophylac-
tic antibiotics are still recommended for: artificial heart values, a
history of infective endocarditis, certairnspecific serious congeni-
tal heart conditions and persons with a cardiac transplant that
develops a problem in a heart value. As you can see the view on
coverage has been radically altered.

Since confusion and disagreement among medical and dental
practitioners could be present, everyone is urged to consult with
all of your health providers for a consensus as to your specific
needs. Your dental professional will work closely with your physi-
cian to determine the most appropriate therapy for you. B.M.O.

mst Blountstown 674-8784

Fall has arrived and our
lawns are slowing down. In a
few more weeks a frost will put
warm season turf species, like
centipede and St. Augustine,
into winter dormancy. To some
homeowners, the thought of
a brown lawn is not very
appealing, and they look
for ways to keep it green all
One way to have green
grass during the winter is to
overseed. In overseeding, a
temporary cool-season grass,
like ryegrass, is seeded into
the permanent lawn. Grasses
used for overseeding will die
out in the spring, when the
warm-season grass comes
out of dormancy. In making a
decision to overseed your lawn,
or not, weigh the advantages
and disadvantages.
Overseeding your warm
season lawn with cool season
grasses can actually delay
next spring's green-up of the
permanent lawn and may even
weaken it. Just keep in mind
that cool season turf species
thrive at temperatures in the
60-70 degree F range, so next
spring when your permanent
lawn begins to break dormancy,
the over seeded turf species
will be very competitive and
act similar to any other weeds
competing for nutrients, water,
and space. On the plus side, the
temporary lawn could prevent
erosion problems, prevent mud
tracking into the home, and
would provide the aesthetics
of a beautiful green lawn all
Since overseeding is mostly
done for cosmetic reasons,
many gardeners don't do it.
They like to take a break from
routine lawn care.

However, if you overseed,
the turf species of preference is
ryegrass. Ryegrasses (annual or
perennial) are popular because
they germinate quickly, are
fast growers, tolerate sun or
shade and can be found at a
reasonable low cost.
Ryegrass, seeded heavily
and mowed closely, can
provide a dense and beautiful
lawn throughout the winter.
Seeding rate for home lawns
with ryegrass should be about
10 pounds of seed per thousand
square feet. Seeding should be
done when soil temperatures
reach around 70 degrees F
which, as a general rule, will
occur around the middle of
October to early November in
Northwest Florida.
Proper preparation and
proper watering are important
for success. Overseeded grass
must contact the soil. First,
the lawn should be thoroughly
raked to remove all debris.
Next, mow the lawn closely,
to about a 2V2 to 3 inch height.
Here's one case when you may.
want to catch the clippings, or
rake up the grass after mowing.
The lawn may need to be cut
more than once to reduce it to
the desired height.

mowing, fertilizing, watering,
and pest management must
continue throughout the winter
for an overseeded lawn.
Mowing should begin when
the overseeded grass is tall
enough to be cut (around 1 2
inches above the permanent
grass). Properly fertilized
ryegrass grows very quickly, so
weekly mowing will probably
be required. Do not mow with
a dull blade--the seedlings
may be torn from the ground
or have a ragged appearance.
Water as needed to keep the
grass from wilting and fertilize
to keep the ryegrass growing
vigorously and to maintain
a deep green color. To help
prevent root burn, the first
fertilizer application should
follow the second mowing.
In the spring, when your
permanent grass is coming out
of dormancy, you will need
to discourage the ryegrass by
stopping the fertilization in
February. Water as infrequently
as possible, making sure the
permanent lawngrass does
not suffer excessively. But,
continue to mow the ryegrass as
closely as possible each week.
These practices tend to weaken
the winter grass and facilitate
a faster transition back to the
permanent lawngrass. Once
the permanent lawngrass has
resumed growth, begin your
regular lawn maintenance

College to explore making fuel from yard trash and plant waste

UF dedicates new cellulosic ethanol pilot plant

GAINESVILLE Florida imports
all of the 10 billion gallons of petroleum
consumed here every year, making it
especially vulnerable to the world's
looming energy crisis. But a new cellulosic
ethanol plant on the University of Florida
campus may help turn part of the state's
energy demand into supply.
The plant, formally dedicated Friday,
Oct. 10, will refine methods to produce fuel
ethanol from the inedible cellulose of plants
now just considered trash-materials such
as crop residues and yard waste.
"Florida is in a double bind, because
as gas costs rise, tourism and agriculture
suffer," said UF President Bernie Machen
at the plant's dedication ceremony.
"Cellulosic ethanol is just one of many
likely new energy sources. But with that
caveat, it could be a big one. Florida is a
year-round growing state, which means
our crops and forest make a lot of unused
Normal-fuel ethanol is produced

Freeport overcomes LCHS 22-19 in district game

by Richard Williams,
Journal sports writer
Liberty County failed to
overcome Freeport's home field
advantage and dropped a 22-19
district football contest Oct. 10 in
Freeport after taking an early ten
point lead.
The Bulldogs final comeback
stalled at the seven yard line.
Trailing 22-19 Terrance Evans
add Liberty's-return team set
the stage for a dramatic ending.
Following solid blocking and
cutting between defenders, Evans
returned the ball to the Freeport
seven yard line. On first down

Liberty had to take their final
timeout of the game as they only
had ten players on the field. After
the time out the Bulldogs ran the
ball and were unable to make
forward progress.
On second down Evans spiked
the ball to stop the clock. The
sideline down marker remained
on second down as Liberty lined
up again Thins time the Bulldogs
tried another running play, but.
were stopped once again. On
fourth down the Bulldogs ran their
kicker and holder out to the field,
but with the down marker still

showing third down LCHS took
the snap and down the ball to stop
the clock; however, since it was
actually fourth down the ball was
turned over to Freeport who ran
out the clock for the victory.
The dramatic finish capped a
back and forth ballgame that ended
with Liberty losing their first
district contest of the year.
SEarly [n the fir.sthalf E'ans
returned an interception for an
apparent touchdown, but that score
was canceled by a penalty on the
return. However Liberty was still
able to score when Kevin McCray

rumbled in from fifteen yards out
to give Liberty the 7-0 lead in the
first quarter.
The Bulldogs had a second
interception that was returned for
an apparent touchdown in the first
quarter, this time by McCray who
intercepted a pass on the Liberty
two yard line and returned it for 98
yards; however a penalty nullified
'the score and gave Liberty the ball
on their own four yard line. After
the long run McCray was lost for
most of the first half. The Bulldog
defender had been fighting an
illness and the long run took a lot
out of him, according to Coach
Grant Grantham.
In the second quarter Mike
Lohse's right leg put Liberty up
10-0 when he kicked a 34 yard field
goal near the end of the first half.
Freeport struck back in the
third quarter with a 63 yard run
for a touchdown that cut the lead
to 10-7.
The Bulldogs scored again with
7:35 remaining in the game when
Lohse hit a 37 yard field goal to
give LCHS a 13-7 lead over home
standing Freeport.
The home team responded
with a touchdown pass that put
Liberty behind 14-13 with just
2:21 remaining in the game.
LCHS responded with a couple
of big plays that ended with Keith
McCray scoring from fourteen
yards out. Liberty failed on the
two-point conversion attempt and
led 19-14 with 1:53 remaining in
the game.
Freeport then had a long run
to move the ball inside the LCHS
five yard line, and then scored
from three yards out with just 1:08
remaining in the game. That play
was followed by Evans' kickoff
return to set up the final series of
the game.
Grantham, despite being
unhappy with the loss, said he was
very proud of the way his defense
played and thought the special
teams put forth an "awesome"
performance against Freeport.

Grantham said, "You hate to
lose, but you have to look at the
good things you see on the field and
with the exception of about three
bonehead plays our defense really
played strong against Freeport."
Grantham pointed out the play
of Senior Joseph Brinkley who
was "making tackles all over
the field" as well as Evans and
McCray who showed real "athlenc
ability" on the field. The coach
also pointed out Freshman punter
Daniel Deason, who moved up
from junior varsity and filled in for
injured punter Kyle Sapp.
"I just told Daniel (Deason)
to catch the ball and kick the
ball," Grantham said. "For him
to come in his first varsity game
and go from not expecting to punt
to having to perform is a lot of
pressure and he did what we asked
of him."
The Bulldogs host Port St. Joe
in what has become a big game for
both teams. Port St. Joe humbled
the Bulldogs last year in Port
St. Joe and Liberty defeated the
Sharks their last visit to Bristol.
Grantham said his team knows
they need to win to stay in the race
for a playoff spot.
"I've told them if they can't get
ready to play this week then they
don't need to play," Grantham
said. "We know what is on the line
and we know we are facing a really
solid football team."
Grantham said Port St. Joe
has more size than in years past
and added the Sharks have a
tremendous backfield and are solid
across the line all the way out to
the wide receivers.
-"We are going to have to work
hard to win, and we are going to
need the fans to come out like they
did two years ago to make some
noise, yell for our team and get
into the game," Grantham said.
"We've been blessed with solid
fan support this year and I hope
the fans can get as excited about
this game as our kids and our

corruptly influencing voters and
intimidating voters is a third
degree felony punishable by
a term of imprisonment not
exceeding 5 years and/or a fine
up to $5,000 in most cases. (See
Chapter 104, F.S.)
Another area of contention,
which was reported by the
candidates regularly, was that


SPEAK UP! Continued from page 15
xx //

*some of the voters on the voters and defend the Constitution
list do not live in the county or of the State of Florida, that I
they are a felon. When a voter am qualified to register as an
completes a voter registration elector under the Constitution
application, he or she must sign and laws of the State of Florida,
an oath stating, "I do solemnly and that all information provided
swear (or affirm) that I will protect in this application is true." The

qualifications to register or vote
include that a person must be at
least 18 years of age and may
preregister on or after his or her
16th birthday. A person must be
a U.S. citizen, a legal resident of
the state of Florida and the county

in which that person seeks to be
registered to vote. Also a person
is not entitled to register or vote
if they have been adjudicated
mentally incapacitated or
convicted of a felony and has
not had his or her rights to vote
restored. Chapter 104.011(2)
F.S. states, "A person who
willfully submits any false voter
registration information commits
a felony of the third degree." This
felony is punishable by a term of
imprisonment not exceeding 5
years and/or a fine up to $5,000.
Furthermore, individuals who are
felons and register to vote without
supplying the supervisor's
office with a Certification of
Restoration of Civil Rights and
then vote knowing that he or she
is ineligible also commits a third
degree felony.
When our office becomes
aware of individuals that no
longer live in Liberty County
and whose name is still on our
voter roll, the process outlined
in 98.065 and 98.075(7) F.S. is
initiated. In most cases, there
is a 30 day response time and
if a voter notifies our office that
they still live in the county, they
are signing an oath to that effect.
By law, we must accept their
response unless we have further
evidence or they are challenged
by a registered voter in the
county and provide legitimate
supporting evidence to support
that challenge. The voter then
must vote a provisional ballot.
The evidence in a challenge is
reviewed by the canvassing board
and must make a determination
on its validity. If the evidence
from the challenge is determined
valid, the provisional ballot does
not count and if invalid, the
provisional ballot will count.
As your supervisor of elections
and your public servant, I take the
responsibilities ofthis office very
seriously. I have always told my
staff that by following the letter
of the law, you never have to
worry about the actions you will
take. I am accountable to you
the citizens of Liberty County
but ultimately I am accountable
to God whom I serve. He sees
all and knows all. My greatest
desire is to please Him by doing
that which is right because that is
how we will be judged. I know I
can never please everyone but if I
please Him that is all that counts
in the end.
I pray that this will clarify
some questions that may have
been circulating out there and
will help to build a greater faith
in the election process in our
county. I always keep an open
door and welcome any additional
questions. Your vote will count!
So vote your way and refuse.the
unwelcome influence of outside
sources. It is your individual
