mother said. A man he
knew during hasic training
years ago kjas at the base
and stayed by his side until
he was transferred.
A 1988 graduate of
Blountstown High School,
this is Tv's 16th year in
the Marines. "He's always


wanted to be a soldier since
the time he \\as ten years old." his mother said.
It's not a career his mother would ha\ e chosen for
him. She never met her own father, who \w'as killed in
World War II shortly before her birth. "That is \hy I
ne\ er wanted my children to go into the uihtary." she
said. while recognizing that serving his county in the
military \\as all her son e\er saw himself doing.
Ty served two tours oftdurt in Iraq and was sent to
Afghanistan m March.
"He never led us to think he was in harm's way,"
his mother said. explaining that Ty talked of being
surrounded by the Afghan soldiers he was training.
"They spent a lot of time out in the field," she said.
During his time there, he had become increasingly
concerned about the children of Afghanistan and
organized drives to collect school supplies for them -
to use while attending classes in tents.
On the family's blog, titled "Our Okinawan
Adventures," Anna Edwards wrote about how iuch
those donated supplies meant to the children. "A pen/
pencil is a status symbol as the vast majority of the
population is illiterate and does not know how to write.
When we do pay call most of the soldiers sign for their
pay with a thumbprint because they can't spell their
name and that's typical of the entire society," Ty wrote
to his wife in an email she shares on their blog.
On their blog, http://okinawanadventures.
blogspot.com, Anna reports that much of Ty's job is
humanitarian, and he said the improvements they are
making to the quality of life for the local people are
greatly appreciated.

Rollover leaves dump truck totaled


Adump truck owned by Gulf Asphalt
Company was totaled after a driver
lost control of the vehicle Monday
afternoon in Calhoun County.
FHP Trooper Dallas Jones said Joel
Shaffer, 50, of Chipley was traveling
south on County Road 275, just south
of Shuman Ferry Road, when he ran
off the west side of the road at 1:32
p.m. When he attempted to return to
the road he overcorrected, causing
the truck to overturn several times.
- Shaffer, who had been wearing
his seatbelt, was standing outside of
the twisted wreckage when a deputy


arrived shortly after the accident,
Jones said.
The truck was hauling a load of
limerock. The impact left the vehicle
"in pieces," Jones said.
The driver was transported to
Calhoun Liberty Hospital to be
examined for his injuries, which
included gashes to his head and
possible broken ribs, Jones said.
It was expected that Shaffer would
then be transferred to Gulf Coast
Hospital. The full extent of his
injuries were not clear. Charges are
pending. JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTO


The people of Calhoun County are en-
titled to have someone they can trust and
rely on in the office of school superinten-
dent. We cannot have strife and division
among our citizens. We must be united
in our efforts and work for the good of all.
Differences of opinions does not necessar-
ily.make either side right or wrong, good
or bad, or smart or stupid. In the last few
months our count has been ripped apart,
and too many people have been hurt or in-
sulted. It is time to heal our wounds, plan
our future, and shake hands and move for-
ward. If I am elected I will welcome the
challenge, and pray for wisdom to do what
every good leader is suppose to do. And-
that is the right thing.
I have been willing to sit down, and lis-
ten to many people. A lot of these wonder-
ful friends have offered some great sugges-
,tions and sound advice. I am trying very


hard not to get caught in political traps, and
get pressured into making unwise decisions.
I want to make the kind of decisions that are
in the best interest of both the school district,
and our local communities. I want to keep my
board members well informed on the issues we
face. They must have as much information as
possible to help them make the right decision,
and be sure there are no surprises. I must be
proactive in all my decisions, and keep a good
line of communication with district person-
nel so that we can be on the same page in the
decision making process. I will try to listen to
your concerns, and treat everyone with dignity
and respect. I will lead us forward, and we will
overcome our past. I need your vote, prayers,
and support.

of Calhoun County Schools.

dead at 6:06 p.m.
Hardy was later found walking down a road in Jackson County.
Witnesses reported that Cook had been with him but ran into woods
and was later seen getting into a white truck and leaving the area.
Cook was taken into custody around 10:40 p.m. after Jackson
County authorities received information that he was traveling in a
truck with a white female identified as Chloe Stubblefield and the
two were leaving Blountstown and heading to the Sink Creek area
of Jackson County. Investigators met the northbound truck as they
were traveling south through Altha. They caught up with Cook
moments later after the truck pulled into the parking lot of Smith's
Supermarket.
Stubblefield denied knowing anything about the murder and told
authorities she had gone to visit a friend at Hidden Creek Trailer Park
in Blountstown. When officers interviewed the friend, identified as
Katrina Renee Coleman, she told them Stubblefield had called her
around 8:28 p.m. and was crying. She said Stubblefield told her she
needed to talk to her. Stubblefield stated that Cook told her that he
had not done anything but "Adam killed the dude," according to
Coleman.
Cook was taken into custody. Both he and Hardy have been charged
with principal to murder in the first degree.
Bolds remained at large until Monday when he was arrested by
Houston County, Alabama officials after being found traveling west
on Hwy. 84 near Ashford. He is being held on an open count of
murder.
Agencies assisting with the investigation included Apalachee
Correctional Institution, Jackson Correctional Institution, Florida
Highway Patrol, Florida Wildlife Commission, Marianna Police
Department, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, U.S. Marshal
Service and the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office.

Rish Engineering Technician Kristin Brown, Preble-Rish Vice-President David Kennedy,
Travis Justice of Preble-Rish, Hospital Board member Ruth Attaway and Hospital
Board Chairman Laddie Williams, along with Preble-Rish Engineering Technician Matt

Survey shows that rising energy costs

could lead to more home fires, deaths


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Chief Financial
Officer and State Fire Marshal Alex Sink
is joining the American Red Cross and the
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
in warning Floridians about the risks of using
alternative, even unconventional, heating
sources to keep home heating bills down as
fuel costs rise.
The American Red Cross and NFPA released
the results of a survey showing that up to half
of survey respondents intended to use stoves
and ovens to keep warm, in addition to portable
space heaters and fireplaces, all of which pose
fire hazards. The telephone survey of more
than 1,000 U.S. adult residents was conducted
September 25-28.
"Already more deaths occur in home fires
than in any other kind of fire," said Fire Marshal
Sink. "For your safety and your family's safety,
please think twice about using stoves and ovens
for anything other than cooking, use space
heaters with an automatic shutoff and make
sure your fireplaces are clean."
Young adults, ages 18-24, were more likely
than other respondents to state they will use the
oven to keep the kitchen warm this winter (17
percent versus 7 percent for all households).
Meanwhile, one-third (36 percent) of people
with fireplaces reported they never cleaned or
inspected their chimneys, and 23 percent of
respondents indicated they did not consider it
essential that someone is home when food is
cooking on the stove.
In 2007, more than 23,700 Florida homes
caught fire, resulting in more than 144 deaths -
73 percent of the total 198 reported fire-related
deaths and 592 injuries. And more home fires
occur in the month of December than in any
other month, due to the added risk of holiday


lights and decorations.
" "Of the more than 74,000 disasters the
American Red Cross responds to each year,
approximately 93 percent are fire-related, but
unlike natural disasters, most home fires can be
prevented," said Gail J. McGovern, president
and CEO of the American Red Cross.
In addition tb making sure heating appliances
are in good condition, Sink also advises:
Make sure you have smoke detectors and
make sure they work.
Create a fire escape plan for your family
and practice carrying out the plan.
Use flashlights instead of candles if
electrical power is knocked out.
Plug electric space heaters directly into wall
outlets. Do not use extension cords.
Keep space heaters and other heat sources
at least 3 feet away from furniture, walls
and drapes and never use a space heater in a
bedroom.
Before using a fireplace, make sure the
chimney flue is open so carbon monoxide gas
can escape.
If your natural gas is shut off or the pilot
light needs to be re-lit, contact your local gas
company. Do not attempt to turn the gas on or
light the pilot on your own.
Turn out lights and snuff candles before
going to bed or leaving the house.
Keep candles out of reach of children and
Vets and use sturdy candleholders.
Have an operable fire extinguisher readily
available.
Residents are not the only ones at risk when a
fire occurs. One hundred and forty-two Florida
firefighters have lost their lives in the line of
duty, including four firefighters who died last
year.

How about that Senator Barack Obama? He's
going door to door, and it's fascinating. It's kind
of like a throw-back. I don't know if he changed
any votes, but today he came home with a big
bag full of Halloween candy. But it was a little
embarrassing when he rang a doorbell at two
of McCain's houses. DAVID LETTERMAN

John McCain kept talking about how he could
help this man, Joe the Plummer. You know,
if McCain really wanted to help this guy, you
know what you should do? Just have him re-
pipe all of McCain's houses. That would be a
job for life. JAY LENO

Barack Obama has begun running ads within
video games. Obama ads can be seen in video
games such as 'Madden NFL '09' and 'Burn-
out.' Not to be outdone; John McCain has be-
gun putting ads inside many MRI machines.
SETH MEYERS, SNL WEEKEND UPDATE

Joe the Plumber is such a celebrity now that
after the debate, he was rushed to Washington.
to unclog a valve on Dick Cheney.
DAVID LETTERMAN

John McCain brought.the heat, which is good,
because it helps his lower back.
STEPHEN COLBERT, on the presidential debate

I got an update on Vice President Dick Cheney.
He was admitted to a hospital earlier today, ab-
normal heart rhythm. But he's doing fine. He's
okay. He's already sitting up, sneering at nurs-
es. And he'll be out shooting hunting buddies
again soon.
DAVID LETTERMAN

Sarah Palin had her motorcade stop at a Wal-
Mart so she could buy a bag of diapers. That's
true. Yeah. Palin said she wouldn't have made
the stop for diapers, but John McCain's com-
pletely out.
CONAN O'BRIEN

I don't want to say the stock market is unstable,
but this morning, the opening bell was rung by
Paula Abdul. -JAYLENO

I personally [am] not worried about John Mc-
Cain. The Lord is on his side. After all, John
McCain's led a very Biblical life. Like his name-
sake Cain, he is not afraid to go negative on
a brother. Like John the Baptist, he paved the
way for the new Messiah [on screen: photo of
Sarah Palin], and like Moses, he takes advice
from a Bush who is going up in flames.
STEPHEN COLBERT

Russia apparently has test-fired long-range
ballistic missiles. At least that's what Sarah Pa-
lin says she saw from her house.
DAVID LETTERMAN

According to a group of Nobel prize-winning
scientists, because of the economic crisis, the
planet might actually improve from the damage
of global warming, because we're using less
fossil fuel and we're saving energy. See, this
shows the brilliance of President Bush's plan.
He was killing the economy, yeah, but to save
the planet! JAY LENO

Does temperament matter?


he cover story in the Oc-
tober 27 issue of Time 0
Magazine written by Nancy C O
Gibbs is titled, "Does Tempera- Jerry Cox is a
ment Matter? How a President's officerandwriter
personality can determine suc- background in
cess-or failure-during times of foreignpolicy iss
crisis." Okaloosa Count
The writer of this piece pro-
vides a historical perspective of
the temperament of past presidents like Lyndon
Johnson, Harry Truman, Franklin D. Roosevelt
and Herbert Hoover. The centerpiece of the ar-
ticle was to contrast the temperaments and per-
sonalities of McCain and Obama.
To many people, McCain comes across as an
angry man. Obama comes across as cool and
collected. McCain's supporters say that his fire
and brimstone demeanor reflects his heroic side.
McCain's detractors believe his anger tantrums
are a sign of weakness.
Obama's supporters like the Joe Cool ap-
proach, but his detractors think that it's a sign of
weakness, meaning no real passion for the job.
The Time piece states that McCain as early
as two years old was having temper tantrums.
According to the Time piece, McCain's parents
would put him fully clothed into a bathtub filled
with water to stop the tantrums. The Time piece
says that McCain acknowledged such in his
memoirs.
My opinion is that McCain has demonstrated
questionable behavior throughout his career. By
his own admission, McCain's performance at
the Naval Academy was questionable. He fin-
ished next to last in a class of over 800 cadets.
McCain was "clowning around" in Spain in
1961 and flew through. a power line. If I had
done that there is a good chance I would have
lost my wings. McCain considers his behavior
as being a maverick; I think it reflects question-
able judgment.


('S

McCain's outburst with fellow
congressmen are documented.
The Time article points out that
McCain got into it with fellow
senator from Arizona DeConcini
when DeConcini refused to fire
one of his aides who had annoyed
McCain. McCain told DeConcini
to go perform an unnatural act on
himself.


There is video of McCain berating a female
witness during a senate hearing on POW/MIA
issues. McCain was so harsh that the woman fi-
nally broke down and started crying.
I'll use a fighter pilot analogy to make my
point about temperament. Fighter pilots must
have confidence in their flight leader. When you
are on the wing at night, in the weather and all
you can see of the flight leader's aircraft is the
wingtip light and a slight outline of the fuselage,
you want to know that he or she isn't going to
do something stupid and get both of you killed.
When you are a squadron or wing com-
mander, as I was, and when you send pilots out
to fly your aircraft you want to feel confident
that they aren't going to clown around and fly
through power lines or put on an air show over
their girlfriend's house.
I worked for about six people like McCain
during my years of service. You never knew
what to expect from them. They would vent their
anger over trivial issues. They would cause the
people in the unit to spend time and energy on
goofy ideas that had nothing to do with flying
airplanes. It was all about looking good for the
inspectors. Our solution was to hunker down,
avoid contact and wait until he moved on to his
next promotion.
If you like the angry man approach to the
presidency then John McCain is your man. If
you like the Joe Cool approach then Obama is
your man. It's up to you.

MERRY-GO-ROUND
by Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift

WASHINGTON The pundits have been wringing their
hands about the dismal economy that the next president will
inherit, the worst since FDR took office in the midst of the
Great Depression. But what if the stock market rebounds -- and
the direct infusion of capital into the banks gets money flow-
ing again -- the economy won't look so bleak and maybe, just
maybe, John McCain can end the campaign on a higher note
than where the polls suggest he is today.
We're not saying McCain can win. If history is a guide, it's
too late to save his candidacy. There has never been a candidate
who has come from this far behind this late in the race to win the
presidency. Barack Obama has opened up a double-digit (10 or
11 points) lead nationally, and he's pulling comfortably ahead
in all the major battleground states. Republicans are beginning
to turn on McCain, a familiar phenomenon known colloquially
as rats leaving a sinking ship.
McCain always had a steep uphill climb running in the wake
of President Bush's disastrous presidency. But his campaign re-
ally started to crater when the financial crisis hit, and a second
Great Depression loomed its ugly head. Ever since the 1930's,
economic stress has tended to move voters to.the Democratic
Party. When McCain uttered the same words said by Herbert
Hoover in 1929 that "the fundamentals of the economy are
strong," he handed his opponent a line that'would make him
seem out of touch and that would haunt him for the remainder
of the campaign.
It's unlikely anything can change the trajectory of this cam-
paign, but it's worth analyzing some of the assumptions under-
lying the dire projections about the economy. One, the stock
market is fickle, but the gain Monday of nearly a thousand points
suggests the financial crisis we're experiencing is less like 1929
and more like 1987, when a precipitous drop in the stock market
turned out to be short-lived. Two, the Democratic-controlled
Congress has handed Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson a $700
billion goody bag to spread around as he and the Republican
administration see fit. It's an extraordinary handover of power,
and one that wasn't really necessary in the sense that the Fed-
eral Reserve and its chairman, Ben Bernanke, already had the
authority to do most of what's in the Paulson package to prop
up the financial system.
Our guess is that the administration steered around Bernanke,
with his blessing, because the Fed doesn't like to act politically.
Plunging in to save the markets just weeks before a presidential
election would have looked like an unseemly intervention to
create an economic environment friendlier to McCain. And that
brings us to our third point, and that is that it is too late to save
McCain. This is not what the strategists call a "base" election.
It's not enough to rally your supporters. The political dynamics
in this election are driven by Independents, and they're moving
to Obama.
Independents are turned off by the negative tone of McCain's
campaign and by his choice of Sarah Palin for vice president.
The base loves her, but her attacks on Obama, accusing him of
"palling around with terrorists," have alienated Independents.
McCain throughout his campaign has seemed personally torn
between pressing a character attack against OBama, and treat-
ing him respectfully. At one rally last week, McCain took the
microphone from a woman who said she didn't like Obama
because he's anArab. McCain said, no, that Obama was a good,
decent family man not that the two are mutually exclusive.
It's quite a turn of events when a candidate repudiates his own
message, because win or lose, McCain sees himself as a man
of honor, and that's the message he must return to or risk losing
reputation along with the presidency.

such great communities. Even though we have lost our material and
sentimental things, we have our lives and memories, which God has

this tragedy and turn it into a blessing!

My'name is James E. build community support. We
Flowers, Candidate for probably could have had this

District 1. I have been a fields but with the present
resident of Liberty County construction on the school
for the last 37 years. Prior we would have had to go
to that I. was moving back in and redo a
around the world lot of the ground
with the rest of -; work costing us
my family as a lot more mon-
my dad was ey. We decid-
a member of ed to wait and
the Air Force. Nn e use the money
I am married to Mary ccei Caln es wisely and do the job one
Martin Flowers to whom I & &Scceedi time instead of twice and


have been married for the
last 29 years. Mary is currently em-
ployed as the Liberty County High
School Media Specialist. I have 3
children, April, who is married to
Jason Moreland and now living in
Colorado with our granddaughter
Adelaide, Bradley, who is married
to Elisabeth Kunde and residing
in Marianna, and Carrie who is a
student at FSU. All three of them
attended school from kindergarten
to graduation in Liberty County.
While all three have chosen differ-
ent paths to follow after graduation,
they have successful careers in
front of them due to the leadership
and our schools desire to help our
students succeed.
As a community we have been
faced with a challenge over the
last several years. We, the School
Board decided it was time to build
a new K-8 school in Hosford to pro-
vide the students in Hosford a safe
and secure learning environment.
The state initially told us they would
not fund the school, but would fund
a combined school to be built some-
where between Bristol and Hosford.
As a school board, we stood our
ground because we knew what was
best for our students and communi-
ty. We held town meetings in Hos-
ford and in Bristol to let the public
know what we were faced with and
that we would need their help and
support to get what we deserved for
our community. Well, an old say-,
ing is "when the going gets tough,
the tough get going" and that is
what we did as a school board and
community. We called on all avail-
able resources, community mem-
bers, legislators and representa-
tives. We overcame the obstacles
that were placed in front of us. Not
having enough room to build at cur-
rent location, we decided we would
build a 2 story building; building
up instead of out is cheaper. We
also have saved the current historic
buildings on campus, refurbish-
ing them and protecting them for
future generations. We were very
fortunate that Georgia-Pacific do-
nated $100,000.00 for upgrading
and redesigning our sports com-
plex at the school. Therefore, when
the school has been completed we
will have ball fields and concession
stands for both boys and girls base-
ball and-softball which will further


C.


it costing us the second
time. It seems like this has been a
long time coming but we are finally
seeing results of all the hours put in
to get all of this accomplished. Cur-
rently, our classroom space is lim-
ited and teachers are being asked
to do a lot in very limited space dur-
ing the construction phase of the
school. Soon they will have bigger
and better classrooms.
I also have been faced with sev-
eral small challenges this election.
First of all, I had to due numerous
hours of research to find out if in my
position I would be eligible to seek
re-election, which I felt I was after
reviewing all applicable laws and
statues so I filed my documents
seeking permission to run from my
employer. I received a letter from
DMS stating I was eligible to seek
office, but in the event I was elected,
I would have to re-sign my position
with DOC, not the interpretation I
believed, but it looked like I was go-
ing to have to accept it. Then, with
talking with my supervisor about the
decision, he stated that's not right.
They expect us to follow the law
and we should expect them to also.
I totally agreed and ask for further
review, but felt like I would not get
an answer prior to qualifying clos-
,ing, so I announced I would not be
seeking reelection. Afew weeks lat-
er I received confirmation that I was
eligible to run for school board and
would not have to resign my job so I
then decided to re-enter the race for
Liberty County School Board Dis-
trict 1. After talking with numerous
people during the election and them
believing I was not a candidate I felt
I needed to re-emphasize this. I am
a legal candidate for Liberty County
School Board District 1 and I need
your continued vote and support to
continue our vision of providing the
best education we can provide in a
safe learning environment- In times
like these we need stability in our
schools. With our country in such a
financial crises we face some tough
times ahead. We need a proven
board member that listens to your
concerns and addresses them,
with stability and the ability to see
the big picture and the future of our
schools.
Again I would like to thank each
of you for your continued vote and
support.

Now that arugula is common
in grocery stores, what (besides
salads) can be done with it? -E.
S., Dover N.H.
ANSWER' This peppery-
tasting salad green is known
in France as roquette, hence its
common name as rocket here.
Italians call it rucola. You don't
have to be a rocket scientist to
find good companion foods
for it, however. Think of it as a
mustard green and you will be
well on your way to including
it in steak marinades or meat
sandwiches (great with roast
beef!), or wrapped around a
grilled sausage.
One of our favorite uses of
arugula is to quickly wilt it
and serve the green in a pasta
dish, along with bacon bits and
perhaps a cream saucer cheese
sauce. Consider it in spaghetti
carbonara, for instance, with
pancetta. Arugula can also be
used like spinach in an omelet
for dinner or brunch. Chop the
leaves and add them with onion
or bacon. A bit of sour cream
balances the peppery taste.
Consider chopped arugula as
an addition to pesto or salad
dressing. Or serve it as a
vegetable green, either briefly
saut6ed in sesame oil or lightly
steamed like beet greens and
served with a little vinegar. On
toasted bread, arugula leaves
topped with roasted red pepper
or grilled eggplant makes an
elegant appetizer.

Can you offer some
cardplayers' superstitions
for our bridge night? -P D.,
Sacramento, Calif
ANSWER: First, be sure
that there are tablecloths on all
card tables. Bare tabletops can
not be tolerated, for everyone
knows that they bring bad luck.
Cross-eyed players are also
unlucky. Who can tell whether
they're looking at another
player's cards? Singing at the
table while a card game is in
progress is also considered very
bad form. If your teammate is
singing, you will surely lose

Can you describe what a

ANSWER: First, the
essentials: a toilet plunger
and some duct tape. Then the
basics: a curved-claw hammer,
a couple sizes each of standard
and Philips-head screwdrivers,
an adjustable wrench; and
both slip-joint and needlenose
pliers. Throw in a pencil, some
assorted sizes of nails and
screws, some nuts and bolts
and hollow-wall fasteners, a
collection of sandpaper, and
perhaps some paintbrushes,
paint rollers, and tray. For

for the luck it brings. Passion,
whether anger or enthusiasm,
brings or prolongs bad luck and
a streak of bad cards. Dropping
a card on the floor also tempts
bad luck to come your way.

Liberty County's first phones installed


to monitor fires and summon help


by Teresa Eubanks
As the area's first forester, Bertus
Eubanks had a rare luxury for
folks living in Liberty County in the late
1930s and early 1940s: a wall-mounted
hand crank telephone. It wasn't for ca-
sual chatting, it was a vital link for ac-
tivating firefighters when a blaze broke
out among the thousands of acres of
forestland that made up the state's least-
populated county.
At that time there were probably less
than 10 telephones scattered strategical-
ly through the county. One was at the
home of Ross and Elenezar Summers in
Orange. Another was at Wynn's Gro-
cery Store in Hosford. There were also
phones on the fire towers along State
Road 20 East and along Hwy. 12. One was in the home
of Carl Bradwell, along State Road 20.
When a call was made, everyone's phone rang. The
ring pattern varied depending on the number dialed.
When there were two long rings, the Eubanks family
knew it was for them. Other households responded to
variations of long and short trills.
There wasn't much' problem with the Forest Service
phones being monopolized by the public, according
to Eubanks' daughter, Doris Eubanks Traylor. "They
didn't have that much use for the phone because few
other local people had one," she said. But, when the
phone rang, everyone with a phone could pick up, lis-
ten and even join the conversation since it was a "party
line."
The phones had a
switching system that al-
lowed long distance calls
"if it was an absolute
emergency," said Johnny
Eubanks, the youngest
of Bertus and Birdie Eu-
banks' seven children.
As his six older sib-
lings grew up and left
home, the task of helping
keep his father in com-
munication with the fire
towers via the phone fell
to Johnny. As a young W


teen, he learned to run wire and in-
stall phones and was often called on
to make repairs whenever there was a
problem.
Along with.having one of the first
phones in the county, the Eubanks
family also had the first "portable"
phone which was put to use each
Sunday night when Bertus and Birdie
attended church.
Weeknights, they would answer at
home when watchers on the county's
fire towers phoned in their final report
of the day about a half hour after dark.
But on Sunday evenings, Bertus and
Birdie were in sitting in the pews of
the Church of God on Hwy, 12 North
when it was time for the night check.
The task fell to Johnny to take the call. When the
family arrived at church, his folks would go inside and
he would stay outside with a phone a wooden box,
about six by 10 inches, with a leather shoulder strap
and a handset sitting in a ditch to be next to the util-
ity pole. "I'd take a gator clip to attach the phone to
two lines running up a phone pole outside the church,"
he explained.
As dusk turned to dark, he would sit and wait for the
call to come through after spotters climbed the tow-
ers and made their reports. "If they did see something,
they'd call and I'd go in and get papa out of church,"
Johnny said, explaining that the task of the county's
first forest service ranger was a 24-hour, seven day a
week job.

FWC's bear-counting ability questioned again


To the editor:
I decided that since I had to
put my two cents in about the
black bear in Florida, I should
do some research.
Again, I want you to know
that I am in no way as educated
as the scientists, researchers and
biologists who conducted this
research. They used their higher
education to get the powers to
be such as governors, legislators
and the FWC commissioners to
believe that everything they
reported is factually accurate.
Walter McCowen of the
FWC office in Gainesville,
directed me to the information
I needed. The last question that
I asked was "What number
must the bear population need
to get to for the bears not to
be classified as threatened?"
His answer was, "We don't
know."
All of the information I
read came from the FWC. The
FWC dazzled me with complex
calculations explaining why
they placed the bears in Florida
on the threatened list, but some
of the information is a tad
confusing.

bestow on shadyprivate businesses is a gross violation of the public
trust, unAmerican and smacks of socialism/fascism.
From a Christian/moral standpoint it amounts to theft as it's not
Uncle Sam's money to give away. Besides that, the fed govt/US
treasury just doesn't have the funds and has to borrow from other
countries which unconscionably places that debt burden on future
generations. It's even more egregious since said funds go to greedy
and or incompetent banksters.
Chances are most "CONgressmen" who voted for it get campaign
contributions or have investments in these swindling firms which is
their dirty little secret. Anyone who supported this abuse of power
is unfit to hold public office and should be tossed out of such and
into jail for embezzlement and fraud and that goes for Allen Boyd,
Obama and John McCain especially for aiding and abetting in this
crime against us all and our posterity too. To reward them by returning
these rascals to office is utter folly folks.
Remember in November to throw all the bums out now.

Work squad renovations in

Altha are much appreciated
To the editor:
I want to commend Warden Varnum and the excellent work done by
Officer Brunner's work squad on renovations of the Town ofAltha's
fire station. I went there at different times and observed the project
and finished results. This endeavor has saved the taxpayers thousands
of dollars in labor expenses and has improved the quality of quick
response time in the event of a fire in our town and surrounding areas
of our county.
Again, I say thanks for ajob well done! I am looking forward for the
Department of Corrections help on future projects for the improvement
and prosperity of our great community in the town'of Altha.
God bless the Florida Department of Corrections and Calhoun
Correctional Institution!
Warmest regards,
Derek Creamer, Town Councilman
28 year veteran of the-
Florida Department of Corrections


been analyzed, the researchers
may have found out there could
be more than 2,042-3,213 bears
in the study areas. With 23,887
hair samples, until all are tested,
there may be more than 20,000
bears in Florida.
Pages 54 through 59 shows
computerized maps of the
study areas of Florida. This
equals to approximately 2,400
,square miles. Florida covers
about 54,252 square miles. The
FWC counted the bears in about
4.4238% of Florida.
Page 54 shows the three
year study area within the
Apalachicola National Forest.
In this three year study, the
FWC calculated that the black
bear total for Florida as:
Apalachicola National
Forest, 438-695 bears


Big Cypress, 516-878
bears
Eglin, 63-101 bears
Ocala, 729-1056 bears
Osceola, 200-313 bears
St. John, 96-170 bears
Total number in Florida,
2042-3213 bears

St. John, 96-170 bears
Total number in Florida,


2042-3213 bears
Page 11 states that "515 bears
had been killed by vehicles
from 2003 through 2006." It's
amazing that from Sept. 2003
to Sept. 2008, there has been
NO increase OR decrease in the
population of bears in Florida.
I have never wanted to hunt
bears and don't think I ever
will. I feel that if the numbers
of bears can be miscalculated
then maybe deer and turkeys
can be too. How about bream,
if a researcher can't catch one
in a river?
Scientists, researchers, and
biologists have already done
this with Red Snapper and
Mullet. Hey, how did they
conduct'the census for Red
Snapper and Mullet in the
Gulf?
The FWC needs our help!!
Please email any pictures and
all pictures of bears that you
may have to: walter.mccown@

Deer more of a

hazard to drivers

than bears are
To the editor:
In regard to Mr. Peddie's concern that someone may be killed
in a collision with a bear in his attempt to express his perceived
overpopulation of bear in Florida, the percentage of people who are
injured from a collision with a bear compared to a collision with a
deer is about one in fifteen hundred respectively. Nationally there are
several thousand instances of deer being hit by motor vehicles each
year. State and Federal governments promote the raising of deer by
allowing the planting of food, food stations and giving advise on the
management of deer herds. In return, government derives a huge
amount of money from licensees, stamps, permits etc.
As more and more land is being clear cut for development, the
remaining pine forest, being the predominate tree species left {which
doesn't produce any food for wildlife} acorn producing oak trees
around homes provide part of a dwindling source of food. A bear cub
remains with it's mother for two years. Should bear hunting again be
allowed, would the hunter be required to first ask the bear its sex to
ensure that cubs would not die?
As for planting corn and grain sorghum and locating feed stations
in the woods, I would suggest that signs be posted that state, "For
Deer Only" as the bear might think these treats were planted for them.
Or, considering that the farmers are having a hard time economically,
hunters could unite and pay the farmer to raise the deer. This way the
hunter would not have to climb the tree stand and shoot downward,
not have to contend with the bears but could drive up and shoot
them at a level angle. This is essentially the process being employed
currently.
According to Mr. Peddie's letter, a bear walked right up behind him
and stood there for three minutes yet he came back the next morning
thirty minutes before daybreak to sit and maybe shoot a deer, {not to
be confused with hunting}. Only when he discovered that a bear had
gone through his backpack and removed his $175 field glasses was
he frightened to the point of not "hunting from that blind anymore for
a while." Mr. Peddie's twelve volt battery and game camera didn't
fare to well either. Bless the bears' heart they just can't understand
that people pay money for leases, batteries, licenses, motion cameras,
and on and on.
Mr. Hamlin appears to be worried that the bears are going to carry
off and eat the children. He and others of a very small majority of
people seem to be attempting to shape public opinion with scare
tactics. The public has learned a thing or two since the scare tactics
that led us into a war with Iraq. The bears aren't out to get us, a few
of "us" are out to get them.
The FFWCC might be smarter than some people think. They may
be aware of how many bears have been killed in the woods at many
of the planted plots and feed stations and are trying to "maintain" a
bear population.

7r -7 .. i Chipola accreditation reaffirmed


MARIANNA-Chipola College
president Dr. Gene Prough has been
notified that the college's accreditation
has been reaffirmed by the Commission
on Colleges of the Southern Association
of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
No additional follow-up report was
requested. "This means we are reaffirmed through
2018," said Dr. Prough. "Our hard work has paid
off. I very much appreciate the effort of every
employee in accomplishing this task. Now we can
focus on our Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)
and increasing student persistence and success at
Chipola."
The letter from SACS President Dr. Belle
Wheelan asked that the college submit a one-page
summary of its QEP to be posted as an example on
the SACS website. This summary was submitted
in August. The QEP, a five-year plan addressing
an issue at the college, is now required as part of
the reaffirmation process.
Dr. Sarah Clemmons, Executive Vice-President
for Instruction and Student Services, said, "We are
elated that no follow-up reports are required, and
that SACS officials are pleased with our QEP."
Chipola's QEP Learning to Persist will be
featured at the SACS Annual Meeting in San
Antonio in December. Dr. Cherry Ward, Faculty


QEP Chair, and Gail Hartzog, Associate
Dean of Development and Planning,
will make presentations about Chipola's
reaffirmation process and explain the
development of the QEP.
Clemmons said Chipola's Title III
project has already allowed the college to
make a good start on achieving the QEP goals of
helping students persist in college and remaining
continuously enrolled until they graduate. She
said one important component of Chipola's QEP
is providing professional development activities to
help faculty and staff deal with today's students.
Other components teach students to make better
decisions and help them take advantage of tutoring
and academic support so they will achieve their
academic and career goals.
Chipola College was founded in 1947 to provide
the first two years of college and workforce
programs for residents of its five-county district.
The college has maintained continuous accreditation
with SACS since 1957.
Chipola is now accredited as a Level II institution
because it has been authorized to offer several
Bachelor's degrees, including six Bachelor of
Science in Education degrees, a Bachelor Business
Management degree with three majors, and-a
Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN).

Floridians encouraged to get ready for flu season | each readers in two counties


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
recognizes fall as the historical
beginning of influenza (flu) season
and urges Floridians who have not
already done so to get their flu
shots today. In Florida, the disease
usually peaks in late January or
February and continues through
March. It is important to start
vaccinating early and to continue
flu vaccination throughout the
winter months and beyond.
In the United States, influenza
results in approximately 200,000
hospitalizations each year.
Annually, over 36,000 people in
the U.S. die from the flu, and most
are age 65 or older. More people
die from flu than from any other
vaccine-preventable disease.
"Floridians still die from


diseases that are easily prevented
by safe and effective vaccines,"
said Charles Alexander, Chief of
the DOH Bureau of Immunization.
"Children, adolescents and
adults should be screened for
recommended vaccines at every
medical visit."
Parents and caregivers can
contribute to the safety and well-
being of children by having
them immunized. It is also
important that adults, parents
and grandparents who are in
close contact with young children
be immunized as well. Each
year, over 20,000 children under
age five are hospitalized from
influenza. Children under age two
are as likely to be hospitalized as
adults who are 65 or older.

Worms can turn kitchen scraps into rich compost


by Theresa Friday, r q ";*'" ; I
Horticulture Extension Agent,I by-w f es'F "i da y-, '
Santa Rosa County L, .


Been thinking about
composting, but you just don't
have the space? Well there is
a system that uses worms to
compost and the outcome is
garden magic.
Vermicomposting is the
process of using worms and
micro-organisms to produce rich
compost from kitchen wastes.
One pound of worms can turn 65
pounds of garbage into garden
compost in 110 days. It's fun and
it's easy.
First you start with a worm
bin. You can construct your own
or purchase something to use as
a bin. It's convenient to buy a
medium sized, plastic container
with a lid. Drill 4 holes about
4 inches from the top of the bin.
Cover the holes by taping small
pieces of screen to the inside of
the bin using duct tape.
Then you will need to make


bedding for the worms. Start by 1/3 full. Then add approximately
shredding newspaper into 1 inch 1 cup of garden soil and 1 cup
wide strips. Fill the bin to about of sand. Moisten-the mixture


and stir.
Next you'll want worms
but not just any worm will do!
Locate red wigglers or African
nightcrawlers. These worms are
excellent composters and thrive
in a worm bin environment. Red
wigglers reproduce more quickly
and are .smaller than African
nightcrawlers; both are good'fish
bait. Local worm farms or bait
stores can usually provide these
types of worms.
Your worms need a dark, cool
place to work, so keep your bin out
of the sun. The ideal temperature
for worms is between,60 and 80
degrees F.


Feed your worms daily, weekly
or as desired. One pound of
worms can process V2 pound of
kitchen scraps a day. The best
diet for your worms are food
scraps that are of plant origin.
This includes vegetable and fruit
trimmings, coffee grounds,-tea
bags and other paper products.
Animal products such as meat,
eggs, cheese, etc. are best avoided
or kept to a minimum to prevent
odors.
Cutting the scraps into small
pieces allows the worms to
consume them faster. Bury the
scraps under the bedding. Rotate
where you bury the food scrapes.
You may add more bedding every
once in a while.

WISE TO
ADVERTISE

Journal.

^ //


Check the moisture when
adding kitchen scraps. If too wet,
add more bedding; if too dry, add
water. Worms like more moisture
than you might think. Experiment
with moisture levels.
After two or three months,
the worms will have converted
the bedding and food scraps into
a rich, dark compost. Then it's
time to harvest your compost.
This is probably the most difficult
task since it's not that easy to
separate the worms from the
compost. Qne way to harvest is
to gently push the compost to one
end of the bin and fill the empty
side with moistened, shredded
newspaper. Place kitchen scraps
into bedding. The worms will
eventually leave the compost and
migrate towards the food. The
compost can then be removed.
Another method is to harvest the
worms and compost at the same
time, dump the contents of the
bin onto a piece of plastic. Allow
the worms time to retreat to the
middle of the pile away from the
light, then scrape off the outer
layer of compost. Repeat this
procedure'until all the compost
is harvested and mostly worms
are left.
When you're done harvesting,
share some of your worms with
others, go fishing and/or return
them to the bin filled with fresh,
moistened bedding.

Woodmen of the World honor area

veterans with program at Hosford Camp

On Saturday, Oct. 18, the Woodmen of the World hosted all
military veterans and those currently serving to their camp in
Hosford,
Harvey Alsup, state manager, welcomed the veterans and family r"l :
members. He stated that the ceremony not only honored those
mentioned, but also included the heroes and victims of September N
11, 2001 those who lost their lives and those currently serving in
the fight against terrorism. Also being honored were the brave men-
and women who safeguard our nation and our local communities
every day.
Over the past 60 years, Woodmen members have presented more
than 1.8 million U.S. flags to schools, churches, and non-profit
organizations. American Patriot Handbooks are given to schools,
libraries, and newly naturalized citizens.
Marty Faircloth, the fraternal coordinator, introduced as the guest.
speaker ETC Cliff Palmer, who works in the Pentagon. He gave a
very interesting update on activities in both Iraq and Afghanistan, '3
covering equipment, supplies, and troop morale. He stated that 0
except for minor occasions the troops were receiving needed supplies
and, contrary to some of the news media reports, the troop morale
is high. Further, he stated the troops are not into the politics, but
theirjob and mission accomplishment. LTC Palmer then answered
detailed questions from veterans and family members.
Members from East Gadsden JROTC presented, posted, and
retired the Colors at the ceremony. Each veteran by branch of
service, Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard, was
allowed to introduce himself and was presented with a flag set
made up of the U.S. flag and branch flag. American Legion Post
172, American Legion Post 272, and Veterans of Foreign Wars
Post 12010 removed and folded a flag, hoisted a flag, executed a
21 Gun Salute and played TAPS. Then these organizations, with
the assistance of six children from five to 13 years of age, executed
a flag retirement ceremony.

SCOPE*


Week of Oct. 12 Oct 18

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, it's OK to share the
spotlight sometimes and this
week you'll do just that. It will
boost morale and portray you
Sin an entirely different light.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
SIf you have designs to throw
Sin the towel when the going
gets tough this week, then you
had better think again. Others
look up to you and need
i your leadership.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
You're devoted to your craft
this week, Gemini, and no
one can break your level of
concentration. Just don't work
so hard that you forget to
have fun in the process.

S CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, sticker shock leaves
you reeling, but there's not
Much you can do about it.
You'll have to pay the price to
.get something taken care of--
.4 it's the lesser of two evils.

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Make the most of time spent
i with a special someone
. because the days are fleeting.
It will be a while before you
see this person again. Urgent
matters arrive on Thursday.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
. Avoid making rash decisions,
i. Virgo. Take all matters into
Consideration and then think
about all sides of the equation.
Words of wisdom arrive
from Aries.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, you're devoting all of
your energy to an upcoming
Relocation. In the meantime,
some other items have
slipped past you and you'll
have to catch up.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
,' You're all smiles when it
Seems everything goes your
. way this week, Scorpio. Just
. remember that the "high"
Cannot last forever. Dedication
to a project gets you ahead.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Retrace your steps, Sagittarius.
There's something that has
gone awry and you need to pin-
point its source. You'll receive
help from an unlikely source.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
You're all about frivolity this
Seek, Capricorn. While a bit
of fun can always be a mood-
Sbooster, too much of a good
thing can do more harm
. than good.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
. Aquarius, some good news
Sputs you in great spirits. You'll
Stake this bright smile and atti-
Stude straight through the week,
where magic on Saturday
causes even more elation.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
SYou may feel like you want to
: hide under the covers, Pisces.
That's perfectly alright; just

Mark 'Protect Your Identity' week by being a smart consumer


TALLAHASSEE, FL At-
torney General Bill McCol-
lum announced the begin-
ning of National Protect Your
Identity Week and encouraged
Floridians to be proactive to
avoid identity theft. National
Protect Your Identity Week
takes place from October 19-


25 this year and is designed to
bring ID theft awareness and
prevention programs to con-
sumers in communities across
the country. Florida ranked
fifth in the nation last year for
the number of identity theft
complaints, with more than
19,000 reported incidents.


"Floridians need to stay
alert and aggressive when it
comes to preventing identity
theft," said Attorney General
McCollum. "Scammers are
getting very clever and tech-
savvy, but with education and
awareness we can fight this
crime."


One of the more common
forms of computer-related
identity theft is "phishing,"
which occurs when a third
party pretends to be a reputa-
ble web service and convinc-
es consumers to enter their
personal identification infor-
mation. Often "phishers" will


send emails pretending to be
a consumer's bank and ask to
verify account information to
help protect against the very
scam they plan to perpetu-
ate, identity theft. Once the
consumer enters his or her ac-
count numbers, the scammer
has all the information neces-
sary to engage in costly and
devastating identity theft.
A new twist on this scam
was recently reported by the
Federal Trade Commission,
which encouraged consum-
ers to be wary of emails that
look as if they come from
financial institutions that re-
cently acquired consumers'
banks, savings and loans, or
mortgages. Attorney General
McCollum reminded con-
sumers that banks will not
email their customers and ask
for information over the inter-
net. Consumers should never
email their information back
but should contact their bank
directly if they have questions
or concerns.
Consumers who believe
they may be victims of iden-
tity theft or fraud may contact
the Attorney General's fraud
hotline at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM
(1-866-966-7226) or file a
complaint online at http://my-
floridalegal.com.
Additional information about
identity theft, tips to protect indi-
viduals, and recovery information
is available online at: http://my-
floridalegal. com/identitytheft.

LCHS Bulldogs stumble 27-13 to Port St. Joe


Sharks following 'worst week of practice ever'


by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
The Liberty County Bulldogs found out that popr practice
makes for poor performance on the field as they ended what
Head Coach Grant Grantham called his worst week of practice
ever with a 27-13 loss to district foe Port St. Joe.
"We just came into the week flat and for some reason that
continued through the game," Grantham said. "I'm at a loss
really, but we are going to go back to practice this week and
look for kids with character, kids that want to work, and kids
that want to play football and move on to our next game."
The Bulldogs did get on the board first as Kevin McCray
caught a deep pass from quarterback Terrance Evans. McCray
timed his jump perfectly as two Sharks mistimed their jump.
The speedy Bulldog then ran the ball into the end zone for the
first touchdown of the night.
Liberty's lead didn't last long. Port St. Joe returned the
kickoffto the Bulldog to just past midfield. The Sharks needed
just three plays from the line of scrimmage to tie the game
when they hit a long pass down the sidelines for the lead.
The Sharks went up 14-7 after blocking a Liberty punt
inside the five yard line. The Sharks scored from two yards
out on third down.
Late in the second quarter Liberty had a field goal blocked.


The Sharks then beat Liberty's deep coverage and hit a long
touchdown pass to take a 21-7 lead into the half.
The Sharks took the wind out of Liberty's sails completely
when they kept the ball for most of the third quarter on a
methodical touchdown drive that gave them a 27-7 lead.
Later in the second half Evans took a hard hit at the end of
a run which knocked him out of the-game. On the next play
from scrimmage his replacement Nolan Brown hit McCray
from eleven yards out to make the score 27-13.
Neither team was able to score again in the contest.
The loss drops Liberty to 3-3 on the year and 2-2 in the
district. The Bulldogs travel to Jay October 24 to take on the
Royals. Jay shares Liberty's district and non-district record
at this point in the season and is coming off a 22-16 victory
over Freeport.
Grantham called Jay a talented team with a lot of heart and
spirit.
"They (Jay) are going to play hard every snap of the game,"
Grantham said. He continued, "For us to win we are going to
have to show that we have heart, that we have character and
that we have pride in what we do.
I know we've got those kids on this team, and I'm going to
let them show us who they are."

"Myself, as well as the other teams and coaches, had a great time

great thing." Said Coach Barber. "It gives our kids something to play
for and work towards. At the beginning of the year we set our goal as
going undefeated and winning the conference championship. We almost
succeeded in both. These kids played outstanding all year long and put
many hours -into their football season. I am proud of where we came

good for Blountstown Football. I would like to thank all the players,

Blountstown Tigers triumph over Chiefs 31-13


despite losing seven starting players to injuries


by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
Without adversity there is no triumph. The
Blountstown Tigers have had adversity this
season and they triumphed over the Northview
Bratt Chiefs 31-13 on Oct. 17 at Bowles Field
in Blountstown.
Despite having seven of 22 starting positions
being filled by replacements due to injury, and
having to rely on a number of players called
up from the junior varsity the Tigers were able
to overcome an early Northview lead using
four interceptions and a strong running attack.
The Tigers fell behind early when Northview
converted a Tiger turnover inside their own 20
into a touchdown and a seven point lead.
Blountstown responded with 21 second
quarter points to open the game up. Their first
score came on a 12 yard run by quarterback
P.J. Buggs. Buggs replaced senior starter
Heath Bailey who was out of the game with an
injury suffered against Wakulla. Blountstown's
second score came on a 35 yard run by Malcom
Ivory. Ivory scored another touchdown when
he returned an interception 55 yards to give the


Tigers a 21-7 lead.
In the third quarter the Tigers put the game away
when Brandon Smith scoredfrom seven yards out.
Jason King added a field goal in the fourth quarter
for the remainder of their points.
Northview added six points in the final quarter
of play.
BHS Head Coach Greg Jordan said he was glad
for the players to get the win and credits the victory
to, "a group of kids that never gave up and just kept
showing up each day of practice with a good attitude,
wanting to get better and knowing that hard work
was going to pay off eventually."
Jordan also credited the leadership of the older
players while also praising some of the younger kids
that were "tossed into the fire" and performed well
under pressure.
"We had some younger kids step up and play
hard," Jordan said. "One of the interceptions was
by a J.V. kid and several others contributed a lot
towards that victory, but we also had some of our
more seasoned kids take more on their shoulders and
really make plays when we needed them."
The Tigers rushed for over 200 yards against


Northview and controlled the clock as well.
The victory moved the Tigers to 1-5 for the
year with an important district contest on the
schedule next.
Oct. 24 the Tigers travel to take on Bozeman.
A Bozeman win knocks the Tigers out of the
playoff, but a Tiger win keeps their playoff fate
in their own hands.
Bozeman comes into the game with a 3-4
record after recording a 40-0 victory over
Holmes County Oct. 17.
Jordan said the Tigers are going to have to
work hard to control the ball on offense and
stop a very talented Bozeman attack while on
defense.
"Before we had a speed advantage," Jordan
said. "We've lost that advantage since our two
fastest players went down with injuries so we
are just going to have to make sure we play
solid up front and try to figure out how to beat
their eight man front."
While on defense the Tigers will be facing
a combination attack that will attempt to move
the ball on the ground and through the air.

Obviously, increased demand
will require tighter management,
and last month, the Commission
deliberated the issue, heard
public comments and adopted
additional restrictions on turtle
harvest. The FWC is on top
of it, but the first step has to
be giving its scientists time to
figure out what further rules are
needed. It would be reckless to
do otherwise.
Words and numbers have
appeared in news media that
paint a picture of an emergency
that does not exist. The
freshwater turtle population is
not plunging.into extinction.
In fact, 90 percent of Florida's
turtles that wind up in the food
market or pet trade are from
turtle farms not from the wild.
We read about thousands of
pounds of turtles being shipped
out of Florida to foreign markets
every week, but those numbers
are questionable.
Those who have lined up
to demand an immediate halt
to commercial turtle harvest
and criticized the FWC for
not making it happen have
generated passionate emotional
reaction, but there is no scientific
evidence that such a drastic
measure is in order.
On Oct. 23, an additional
restriction will go into'effect,
further restricting the harvest
of wild freshwater turtles. This
new rule is sufficient to protect


turtle populations while we
take time to figure out what
additional rules are needed. We
don't have to shut down the
entire industry to get there.
For centuries, turtle harvest
required no regulation. As
conditions changed over time,
regulations became necessary,
and they needed revision when
conditions changed again. That's
how conservation works. It is a
moving target.
The situation calls for
disciplined and clear thinking
using science. Those are the
tools the FWC uses to manage all
the state's fish and wildlife, and
the agency has a distinguished
record of managing even the
most vulnerable members of
Florida's wildlife communities
such as bald eagles and
crocodiles. It has earned its
reputation for managing those
resources with wisdom.
We welcome input and
discussion, but spreading
misinformation and exaggerating
alarm are not helpful. We
have a system that works very
well, because its foundation
is informed, objective people,
armed with the best available
science.
Let's address this issue calmly
with our focus clearly fixed
on the target conservation.
There would be consequences
for aiming too high as well
as aiming too low. People's
livelihoods and living natural
resources both are at stake.

DEP urges recycling

of campaign materials
TALLAHASSEE As early voting begins in Florida for the
November 4, 2008 general election, the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP) is encouraging candidates for
political office and citizens to recycle campaign signs at the end of
the election process. Recycling paper materials like campaign signs
keeps waste out of landfills and allows for the reuse of materials.
Recycling campaign signs is one way citizens can help Florida
achieve its new statewide recycling goal of 75 percent by the year
2020, which was established in House Bill 7135 known as the Energy,
Climate Change, and Economic Security Act of 2008. The bill, signed
into law by Governor Charlie Crist, also directs DEP to develop a
program designed to achieve the 75 percent goal and submit it to the
Legislature for approval by January 1, 2010. DEP is encouraging'
the public to assist in developing this plan and has created a public
forum where interested persons can share thoughts, suggestions and
comments, as well as view the contributions of other participants.
"Achieving the new statewide recycling goal of 75 percent by 2020
will require innovative strategies by all Floridians," said Mary Jean
Yon, DEP's Director of Waste Management. "Changing old habits
- like recycling a political campaign sign instead of tossing it in the
dumpster is just one of many ideas to help reduce the waste stream
and increase Florida's recycling rate."
During an election year, campaign signs line the streets of Florida.
Because many local governments have ordinances regarding the
removal of campaign signs within a specific timeframe after the
election, campaign signs and materials can end up filling landfills
around the state. Recycling campaign signs not only saves space at
landfills, each ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees and 7,000 gallons
of water. Recycled paper also saves 60 percent energy in comparison
to new paper and generates 95 percent less air pollution.
In 2006, DEP conducted a pilot program in four counties to
encourage the reuse or recycling of campaign signs. Three tons of
campaign signs were collected as a result of the pilot projects. Two of
the counties that participated in the pilot program, Charlotte County
and Pinellas County, are offering campaign sign recycling again to
their residents this election year.
"We have historically been able to recycle 100 percent of all
campaign signs that we were able'to obtain," said Bill Sanders with
Keep Pinellas Beautiful, Inc., who engaged local high school students
to participate during the pilot program.
Charlotte County was also pleased with the participation and
positive feedback received from citizens during the 2006 pilot
program. "Brought back by popular demand, Charlotte County will
be collecting campaign signs," explained Barbara Kula, the county's
Recycling Coordinator.
DEP encourages candidates and citizens to check with their local
recycling coordinator for recycling campaign signs options. For local
recycling coordinator information, visit http://www.dep.state.fl.us/
waste/categories/recycling/pages/contact.htm.

Altha opens district tourney play Monday against Bozeman


Injuries to two starting players
was a big reason the Junior
Varsity Lady Wildcats dropped
two consecutive volleyball games
for the first time this season. The
varsity Lady Wildcats found
themselves on the losing end
of all three of their games last
week.
BRISTOL, Oct. 13-The
Altha JV Lady Wildcats tried to
pick up win #15 on the season last
Tuesday but the Liberty County
JV.Lady Bulldogs nipped them
in three games: 26-24, 25-23,
15-9.
Both teams struggled in Game
1 with getting their serves in
play. Liberty County finally
pulled ahead 18-12 only to have
Altha's Nikki Schamens tie it
with 6 straight service points.
Angela Waldron gave the JV
Lady Wildcats (14-4) their first
lead of the game, 23-20, with her
4 straight service points but Altha
could not maintain it in the end.
Nikki Schamens reeled off
another 6 straight service points
to give Altha a 8-3 lead in Game
2: Liberty County came back
to take a one point lead, 14-13.
Then Aerial Folsom made it
anl8-16 game in favor of the
Lady Cats. Schamens put up 4
more service points to make it a
23-18 ballgame. But the Lady
Bulldogs tied it again at 23 before
the Lady Wildcats got the side out
point and Angela Waldron served
the game winning point.
Altha's inability to find the
court with their serves gave
Liberty County an easy victory,
15-9, in the final game.
The Top Lady Cat in scoring
was Nikki Schamens with 17
service points. Both Aerial
Folsom and Angela Waldron
posted 6 service points. Marissa
Coleman came away with'3
service points. Sharlyn Smith,
Amy Tharp, and Kimberly Wiltse
were all credited with a service
point.
Altha's Varsity Lady Wildcats
hung close with Liberty County
but lost in a4-game match-22-25,
18-25, 25-18, 18-25.
The Lady Wildcats (5-12)
stayed within three in Game 1
until Liberty County made a 22-
15 run. However, Altha got back
to within 3 points, 20-23, but the


Lady Bulldogs got the side out
point and the next service point
for the win.
In Game 2 Altha held a 5-point
lead until Liberty County made a
7-point run to get within a point,
12-11. They swapped leads
until the Lady Bulldogs came
out on top with 3 straight service
points.
The Lady Wildcats flexed their
muscles in Game Three. Emily
Brooks gave Altha an 11-2 lead
with her 9 straight service points
and they held onto that lead for a
25-18 victory.
Although Altha held an early
lead in Game Four, Liberty
County would return the favor
by downing the Lady Wildcats,
25-18.
Altha's leading scorer was
Emily Brooks with 19 service
points. Both Loni Johnson and
Rebekah Wiltse came away with 7
service points. Christy Simmons
chalked up 6 service points,
Cortney Harris had 5 service
points, and Cessna Folsom was
credited with 3 service points.
ALTHA; Oct. 14-For the
first time this season the JV Lady
Wildcats (14-5) lost back-to-back
.matches as they fell to the Sneads
Pirates-12-25, 27-25 and 5-15.
A big reason for that is that
Amy Tharp went down in the
first game with \%hat looked like a
broken ankle but turned out to be
a badly sprained ankle. Her loss
left her teammates in shock and
Sneads won the opening game,
25-12.
Even though the JV Lady
Pirates jumped out to a 14-9 lead,
the JV Lady Wildcats' Aerial
Folsom tied Game 2, 16-16, with
her 6 straight service points. It
remained tied tintil Sneads went
ahead, 23-20. But Brianna Harris
.brought the Wildcats to within a
point, 24-25 with her 3 straight
service points. Then Marissa
Coleman served out the game
with 2 service points to give the
Wildcats the victory, 27-25.
Altha lost their serving rhythm
in the deciding game and fell to
Sneads, 5-15.
The Top Lady Cat in" scoring
was Aerial Folsom with 9 service
points along with 3 aces. Sharlyn
Smith recorded 5 service points
and 2 aces. Amy Tharp put up


by Jim Mclntosh,
contributing sports writer

4 service points and Marissa
Coleman came away with 3
service points. Both Angela
Waldron and Kimberly Wiltse
had a service point: Waldron was
credited with a service ace.
Sneads had their way with the
varsity Lady Wildcats (5-13; 1-6,
2-2A) in Game 1 and downed
them, 25-8.
In Game 2 Altha led 8-7 before
Sneads jumped back out in front
to stay, 13-10. The Lady Pirates
