Father & two sons arrested; guns


confiscated from White


A Calhoun County father and
his two sons, including a 17-year-
old who has been adjudicated
as an adult, have been arrested
following an investigation by
the Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office.
John Lafollette, 45, was taken
into custody on a parole violation
after deputies conducted a search
of his home Oct. 17.
Lafollette, who was adjudicated
a felon for battery on a law
enforcement officer and resisting
arrest without violence, violated
his parole by being in possession
of guns; according to an arrest
report.
When deputies accompanied a
parole officer during a search of
the his home, Lafollette told them
they could search anywhere they
wanted, stating, "I don't have
anything to hide."
But according to the sheriff's
office report, he did.
Five guns were found in
Lafollette's White Pond residence,
located west ofAltha.
Items recovered that day
included:
*An H&R handgun that was
found in a compartment of the

headboard of his bed.
*A .410 gauge shotgun
discovered under his bed
*An H&R .22-caliber handgun
and a Ruger .22-caliber handgun
were found in a hole in the wall
inside his bedroom closet.
*A Stevens .22-caliber rifle was
found leaning against the wall in
his 19-year-old son's room.
He was charged with
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon.
. Both of Lafollette's sons are
facing charges following their
Oct. 24 arrests in connection
with two commercial burglaries
and one residential burglary in
the Shelton's Community area.
They are accused ofbreaking into
Shelton's Store and forcing their
way into an older commercial

building being used for storage
and entering a private residence
sometime between August 2008
and September 2008.
Stolen items later recovered
from the Lafollette home included
firearms, computer speakers,
radio speakers and a telescope.
A news release from the
Calhoun County Sheriff's Office
said that Joshuah Mathew
Lafollette, 17, and his brother,
Christopher Lafollette, 19,
stashed some of the stolen items
underneath one-lane bridges on
Chason Road and Maddox Road
in Jackson County.
The sheriff's office is urging
gun owners who may not have
checked their .property lately do
so since the rightful owners of
four of the recovered guns have
not been identified.
The brothers are charged with
two counts of burglary of a
structure, one count of burglary of
a dwelling, three counts of grand
theft and conspiracy to commit
burglary.
Additional arrests of

SA grease fire is said to be the cause of a blaze
that began in the kitchen of a mobile home Monday
night, but the origin of a second fire, which started
a few hours later and destroyed the rest of the
structure, is unknown according to Clarksville
Assistant Fire Chief Randie Lykins.
Firefighters were called to the scene just before
8 p.m. Monday and found the kitchen area of
the residence off County Road 287 engulfed.
They were able to stop the fire from spreading
throughout the 12 x 70 mobile home.
"When we left, we had the shell of the structure.
The kitchen was probably a total loss. There was
smoke and water damage to the rest of it, but it
was whole," Lykins said.
Firefighters returned to the scene at 2:30 a.m.
Tuesday when a second fire was reported. "It was


totally engulfed. Both ends of the house were '
destroyed and we/couldn't really tell where the
starting point was," said Lykins.
He said that the fire marshal's office was
notified after the first fire.
The homeowner, Diane Perry, told firefighters
she was making French fries, which apparently
started a grease fire after she walked to a room in
the back of the mobile home, according to Lykins.
She said the power went out. When she stepped
out of the room to see what was happening, she
found that the trailer was full of smoke.
Unable to locate her phone, she drove to a
neighbor's housed to call for help. She was not
injured.
Lykins said that his department was assisted at
the scene by the Mossy Pond Fire Department.

Three-vehicle accident in Bristol sends

drivers & group home residents to ER


by Teresa Eubanks,
Journal Editor
A three-vehicle
collision on County
Road 12 South in
Bristol sent several to
the emergency room
at Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital with minor
injuries, according '-"
to a report from
Florida Highway
Patrol Trooper Craig
Gaines.
The wreck-involved a pickup,
an SUV and a Liberty Transit
van that was taking nine people
to appointments at the Apalachee
Center for Human Services on
Oct. 22.
All three vehicles were
southbound around 8:30 a.m.
when the Transit van, driven by
Josie M. Hand, 22, of Bristol


~L -i
jL731


slowed to make a left turn off
County Road 12. Traveling behind
her was a 2007 Suzuki, SUV
driven by Brenda H. Whittaker,
60, of Bristol, who also slowed
down. Coming up behind the
SUV was a 2004 GMC pickup
that failed to slow down.
The pickup, driven by Patrick
S. Phinney, 35, of Bristol drove
into the back of the SUV and


pushed it into the rear of the
van, the trooper said.
Phinney said the glare of
the sun prevented him from
seeing that Whittaker had
slowed down.
After impact, the SUV
came to rest in the road
while the van went onto the
east shoulder and the pickup
went into a culvert on the
west shoulder.
Six of the Transit van's


passengers, who live in a
group home on Freeman Road,
were taken to the emergency
room to be examined for minor
injuries. They ranged in age from
45 to 69. Both Whittaker and
Phinney were also transported
to the hospital where they were
treated and released, the trooper
said.
Charges are pending.

Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin is taking heat be-
cause the Republican National Committee has so
far spent $150,000 on wardrobe for her and her
family. She spent $50,000 at Saks Fifth Avenue,
$75,000 at Neiman Marcus and about $5,000 on
hair and makeup. Hey, representing small town,
common-folk hockey moms isn't cheap, folks.
JIMMY KIMMEL

Alaska's largest newspaper has endorsed Barack
Obama despite the fact that their governor is Sarah
Palin. Luckily for Palin, it's one of the 500 newspa-
pers she doesn't read. CONAN O'BRIEN

In Florida, Elisabeth Hasselbeck of 'The View,' ap-
peared onstage with Sarah Palin. She's a big sup-
porter. Elizabeth's speech was interrupted by heck-
lers, who police later identified as Whoopi, Barbara,
Joy and Sherri. JAY LENO

Sorry to disappoint the liberals who tuned in tonight
to gloat about Obama's lead in every poll, but I am
not worried. McCain may be behind, but the man is
a fighter. He doesn't know the meaning of the word
'quit.' He used to, but it was stored in the same part
of his brain that remembered to vet his running mate.
STEPHEN COLBERT

This is the longest campaign. As you know by now,
Colin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama for pres-
ident, which is bad news for John McCain, because
at his age, he has enough colon problems.
JAY LENO

John McCain has, for some reason, decided to
build his final push around Joe the plumber. Now,
this guy Joe, we learned last week, is not a licensed
plumber and his name isn't even Joe, but that didn't
stop the McCain campaign from naming him their
unofficial mascot. Why they'd name a plumber a
mascot for a campaign that's down the toilet al-
ready, I don't know. JIMMY KIMMEL

The Homeland Security Department said it will not
meet a 2012 deadline set by Congress to scan the
contents of every cargo container headed to US
ports. 'Thanks for the heads up,' said terrorists.
AMY POEHLER, Saturday Night Live

As popular as Obama is here in the United States,
he might be in even more popular overseas. Gal-
lup polled citizens of 70 countries and found that
foreigners support Obama over McCain by nearly
four-to-one. It was an unusual poll, actually: 30 per-
cent supported Obama, eight percent supported
McCain, and the rest supported David Hasselhoff.

This election is about America's future


The election on November 4, 2008
is not about John McCain or Barack 0)
Obama. The election is not about the
Republican Party or the Democratic
Party. The election is not about your Jerry Cox is a
favorite prejudices or your hatred for officerandwriter

is about AMERICA'S FUTURE.. foreign policy iss
Okaloosa Count
Thomas Jefferson wrote about a
"well informed electorate." If you are
voting for McCain because of his fear
mongering on taxes then you are voting for McCain for
the wrong reason.
If you are voting for Obama because you think he may
give you a tax break'then you are voting for Obama for
the wrong reason. Presidential candidates can promise a
chicken in every pot. They promise to never raise your
taxes. Presidents can talk but the Congress of the United
States decides whether to raise or lower taxes. So, all the
talk from both presidential candidates about taxes is just
that talk.
If you are voting for McCain because he was a fighter
pilot and POW and the belief that he will protect you
from terrorists and Obama won't, then you need to un-
derstand how America's defense system works.
McCain will continue with President Bush's pre-emp-
tive policy of invading whenever he feels like it unless
the Congress has enough backbone to resist. Obama will
in due course wind down the war in Iraq and along with
McCain pick up the pace on the war in Afghanistan.
The key people in this defense policy process are

the Secretary of Defense and the Chair-
I'S man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. If the
iN ED next president, whether it is McCain or
Obama, has any smarts about them, they
retired military will ask Mr. Gates, the current Secretary
than extensive of Defense, to stay on the job. Gates is a
domestic and
smart guy and most important, he is apo-
es. He lives in
litical. Neither Republicans nor Demo-
crats should put a political hack in as the
Secretary of Defense.
Many Americans, particularly Repub-
licans, like President Bush's policy of invading anyplace
that he thinks might be a threat. Pounding our national
chest and marching off to war feels good, but America is
suffering from the consequences of Bush's policies.
Warfare is labor intensive and expensive. The U.S.
military forces are not manned and equipped for decade
long wars. As a military officer, I am all for flying and
fighting when threatened, but the American people need
to know in advance what the cost in money and Ameri-
can lives will be when a president decides to take the
nation to war.
-America has endured financial crisis and reces-
sions in the past. The economy is cyclic. It is nor-
mal for the markets to incur downturns as the mar-
kets seek equilibrium in the supply and demand of
goods and services. But the current economic prob-
lems are more severe and dangerous because markets
are now global. What happens in America's financial
arena affects the economic health in other nations.
The small country of Iceland is a good example. As
a result of the current financial crisis, the Icelandic gov-
ernment is broke, and the International Monetary Fund
may have to lend Iceland money for the country to sur-
vive. Think about it. Countries going broke.
The central banks of America and the other G-7 in-
dustrialized nations are pumping cash into the civilian
markets, meaning the financial institutions, so that they
don't go broke. Thousands of people have lost their
401-K savings, money on which they expected to retire.
Many state governments are technically broke because
they don't have the cash to meet their debts. California
which has about $15 billion in debt is the best example.
So, here we are on the eve of the most important elec-
tion in the history of America. Why is it so historic? The
reason is that-for the first time since the Great Depres-
sion of the 1930s, the future of the country is at risk.
Be an informed voter and vote for the future of Amer-
ica, not a political party.

THE DEPRESSION THAT NEVER WAS
WASHINGTON In the realm of investing, most people are
wrong most of the time; otherwise most people would be million-
aires. This implies that investing is a zero sum game, but it is not.
There doesnot have to be a loser for every winner. For example, a
person buys a stock, and the stock goes up. Did the person selling
lose? Not necessarily. That person may have taken the proceeds
from the sale and invested in another stock, say a startup, and it,
too, may have risen.
No, the concept of the majority being wrong is a macro, not a
micro, truth. If the vast majority of investors say the stock market
is going down, they will have presumably.voted with their money
and sold their stock holdings. Then, holding cash instead of stock
and they would be potential buyers, not potential sellers. And when
more money is on the sidelines than in the market, it becomes
volcanic, eventually forcing the market up, not-down. That is the
situation that currently prevails.
So much money has moved from stocks to cash that money is
pouring into the safe haven of U.S. T-bills and bonds, instruments
used by the federal government to borrow money. As a result, an-
nual interest rates on short-term T-bills have fallen to a level as
low as one-third of one percent. And interest on the national debt
is the largest single item in the federal budget.
This is the opposite of what happened after the 1929 Stock
Market Crash. Then, the margin requirement was 10 percent,
Sr meaning that investors only had to put up 10 percent of the money
Jers to buy a stock, with the other 90 percent being loaned by a broker-
age firm, which in turn borrowed the money from a bank. When
stocks dropped 10 percent, investors were wiped out. A drop of
20 percent or more wiped out investors and many brokerage firms
and banks as well.
SToday, the margin requirement is 50 percent, which means that
brokerages and banks are not being harmed by margin deficien-
cies. And very few investors have been wiped out. They may have
U lost 10, 20, or 30 percent of their investments, but that still has
left them with a bundle of cash, especially in 401(k)s: And that is
some of the cash that is flooding the T-bill market.
The underlying element of the so-called financial crisis is
real estate. Conventional wisdom erroneously places the blame
on unregulated lending to unqualified buyers (though properly
enforced regulations would have lessened the problem), when,
S in fact, it has been a simple matter of supply and demand. Too
many houses were built. But that has changed. Housing starts have
dramatically dropped, and before long, demand and supply will
be back in line.
However, there is one analogy to 1929. Whereas then stock was
Bought on 10 percent margin, now real estate has been bought on
zero margin, which means a lot of first-time buyers bought their
homes with nothing down. When housing prices fell, normal
foreclosure rates were exacerbated by credit-worthy buyers who
simply chose to walk away from their homes when mortgages
exceeded home values. It was then that mortgage lenders got into
trouble. And mortgage lenders included banks, savings and loans,
and the insurance companies that guaranteed the loans. Then came
the mortgage brokers, investment banking firms and stock broker-
ages.that bundled the mortgages and sold them worldwide. This
bundling (mortgage-backed securities known as CMOs Collat-
eralized Mortgage Obligations) was intended to provide security
S to investors by spreading the risk: If two mortgages defaulted out
of a bundle of 100 mortgages, how much harm could be caused?
But what happens if 10 or 20 out of 100 default?
Neither the mortgage insurance business nor the mortgage
bundling business is regulated.
PI An insurance company could gamer millions of dollars in pre-
miums without having sufficient reserves to back up the mortgages.
And when they were required to pay, they were forced to deplete
their cash reserves and sell their stock portfolios hence the stock
market crash.
The other unregulated leg the mortgage bundling business -
was similarly affected. To the extent that the bundled mortgages

Reader responds to Cox column


To the editor:
I just couldn't sit by and let
lies, untruths and deception go
-unchallenged. ("The only thing
necessary for evil to flourish is
for good men to do nothing." -
Edmund Burke). I would like
to take issue with Mr. Cox's
and the Washington Merry-Go-
Round editorial articles the week
of 10\15\08. When I read these
two articles, I think my blood
pressure jumped 20 points. I
wasn't just a little upset at what
I read, but my righteous anger
boiled over. To start with Mr.
Cox criticizes us, the American
citizens; calling our collective
"Character" into question. Then
second, he questions our "Honor
and Integrity," saying in these
two we have a failing grade.
Back in the youthful days of this
nation, to impugn orle's honor
and integrity were words and
cause for duels to the death. How
dare he question ourCharacter,
Honor, and Integrity, then at
the end of his article he subtly,
presumptuously and guilefully
calls most all of us racist if we
back the McCain\Palin ticket.
Mr. Cox has yet during this
campaign to question Obama's
character, honor and integrity, or
the fact that he and most of his
followers are proven racist. He sat
for twenty years as a member of a
white people hating and America
bashing\hating, racist church, but
never a word of disgust from the
poison pen of Mr. Cox on this;
when 95% percent of America's
black population votes for the
black candidate, then that sounds
pretty racist to me. Turn the
tables and then see all the poison

that would be directed toward
America's whites. It's time to
stop the hypocrites and call them
on their double standards.
Concerning character, Obama
has many disreputable and shady


friends in his past and present
circle. Obama lied when he said
that William Ayers was a man
he casually met that lived in his
neighborhood. When in fact,
he worked hand-in-hand with
Ayers on two or three separate
organizational boards with
funding of around $150 million
dollars, starting in 1995 to about
2003. And not only this, but he
began his political career in the
living room of William Ayers.
He may call this and other lies
as misspeaking, but lies are lies,
no matter how you speak them.
If Obama was held to the same
standards as McCain, then he
would've been railroaded out of
the campaign long ago.

Confusion on Amendment 2
To the editor:
There seems to be some confusion on Amendment 2 that will be
on the Nov. 4 ballot, and Iwanted to take the time to provide some
clarity on this issue. The amendment reads: "Inasmuch as marriage
is the legal union of only one man and one woman as husband and
wife, no other legal union that is treated as marriage or the substantial
equivalent thereof shall be valid or recognized."
When one thinks of marriage they usually think of a man and a
woman who are in love and willing to spend the rest of their lives
together. However, there are times when men and women decide not
to get married, for personal reasons, yet still spend their lives together.
Voting YES on amendment 2 will ruin any chance these people have
at sharing everything they have with their significant other.
One man and one woman who are bound together by marriage
can share-car/health insurance, visit one another in the hospital,
become more eligible for financial aid, along with a multitude of other
things that become available for people who are fortunate enough
to be married. However, not everyone has the option of marriage,
or because of personal beliefs or experiences has chosen not to be
See LETTER continued on page 11


were not insured or under-insured or were not made whole by
insurance from failing insurance companies (and remember that
any company, not just normal insurance companies, could insure
mortgages), the investors who bought the bundles suffered severe
losses. Because mortgage bundles were considered to be safe,
conservative sources of interest income, the buyers of these instru-
ments including banks, trust funds, and municipalities like little
Narvik, Norway, were devastated.
Does all this mean that a global recession or depression is upon
us? A recession is defined as two successive quarters of negative
growth, and we have not yet had one. Credit is nearly frozen, cut-
ting off normal business borrowing, and high unemployment is
expected to follow. Perhaps not.
The housing crash created the mortgage crash which created the
credit crunch which created the stock market crash. But there were
residual benefits. Oil prices also crashed. Cash became plentiful
- in T-bills if not in banks. Interest on the national debt crashed.
Government intervention is solving the credit crunch.
In the end, the Great Housing Crash of 2008 will be just that:
a housing sector problem that cost the financial sector a great
deal of money. But even that crash is already subsiding for three
reasons: Reduced housing starts will decrease the glut of houses.
As more people turn from buying to renting, rental rates are in-
creasing, which can only have an upward effect on rental home
prices. Abundant money has brought down T-bill rates, and this
will naturally spill over into the mortgage market.
Meanwhile, other sectors of the economy are booming. With
the aging of the Baby Boomer generation, medical services and
pharmaceuticals are growing. Retirement communities a seg-
ment of the real estate market are in demand. Stock market
bargains are being snapped up from institutions such as insurance
companies that sold because they had no choice, not because the
businesses underlying those stocks were in trouble. And when
the marketplace sorts all this out, it ill come as a surprise jhat
government intervention will have only been necessary to sol\ e
the temporary credit crunch and that the cost will prove to be but
a fraction of what had been predicted.
This will be the Great Depression of 2008 that never was. After
all, most people are wrong most of the time.

Elbert Shelton donates $20,000 to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital


Elbert Shelton, a local
retired businessman, presented
a check for $20,000 to
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital on
Friday, Oct. 23. The ceremony
was conducted in the Dining
Hall of.the hospital. Shelton
made his kind and generous
donation to Laddie Williams,
Chairman ofthe local Hospital
Association Board.
Shelton's father,
Charley Wilson Shelton
was the Chairman of the
Calhoun County Board of
Commissioners in 1960 when
the hospital was opened.
Shelton said his father
was extremely interested
in getting the hospital built
realizing the importance of
such an institution to the
entire community. He stated
he was making his donation in
the same spirit, also realizing
how vital the hospital is to
the area.
He remarked his father
was in various businesses,
including farming, especially
timber and turpentine. He
conducted much of his
business in the Clarksville
and Mossy Pond area, where
Shelton was born.
Shelton, like his father,

was a long time businessman
of this area. Returning from
the military after World War
II, he eventually started the
highly successful trucking
business that is today owned
and managed by his son,
Randy Shelton.
He reminisced about
starting the business under an
old pecan tree near the home
he built after the war. The tree


still stands but the business
occupies several acres down
the road from its original
start. He initially hauled lots
of farm equipment with Old
Mac Trucks. He noted today
the trucks from the company
haul various items to all fifty
states.
Shelton stated he had been
following the progress of
the hospital and was very

interested in and pleased with
its turnaround recently. He
said Laddie Williams, John
Tomlinson Jr., Ruth Attaway
and other Board members
reminded him of the fine
group of Commissioners and
Hospital Authority members
that first opened the hospital.
As a result, he had been
considering donation to aid
in its rebirth.


Williams said he and the
Board, on behalf on the
hospital's staff, the medical
staff, and most importantly,
its patients, were most
appreciative of Shelton's kind
donation.
He added the money
would be put to good use in
continuing various upgrades
and renovations in the
hospital. -

Can Iplant lettuce in fall
to come up in spring? -0. A,
Reading; Pa.
Answer: Yes, gardeners
in northern climates can
harvest early-spring lettuce-
-as well as spinach, kale,
garlic, and parsley--if it's
planted just before the cold
weather arrives in fall.
Protect the young plants
with a cold frame or thick
mulch through the winter,
then remove the protection
when soil temperature in
your area reaches 40 degrees
Fahrenheit. Water the new
plants well in spring.
I know November's
birthstone is the topaz,
but can you tell me the
superstitions associated
with it? -D. E., Detroit,


Mich.
Answer: Called the "stone
of strength," topaz is third
in hardness, behind the
diamond and the sapphire.
Generally recognized for
its yellow color, topaz can
sometimes be colorless,
white, brownish, pink, or
blue. Ancients considered it
to be effective in dispelling
worries or warding off bad
dreams. It is often chosen as
the gemstone for friendship,
signifying faith and loyalty,


married, but should still be able to live their lives happily and not
worry if the government is going to come in and dictate how they
live. Amendment 2 puts the government where it does not belong -
regulating the personal relationships of Floridians.
One of the reasons people do not believe in marriage or chose not
get married is because the divorce rate is so high and last I checked
heterosexuals are the only known cause of divorce. Some may not
be able to afford a marriage license, or maybe someone has been in a
marriage but lost a spouse and would rather not marry again. Every
unmarried Floridian will be impacted by this amendment especially
divorced or widowed seniors and public employees who, under
existing programs, can share some benefits such as hospital visitation
privileges and health care coverage without being married.
People have signs in their yards saying, "One Man One Woman" in
this century marriage is not pure, it is not protected or even respected,
yet there are no laws preventing heterosexuals from-abusing their
PRIVILEGE to get married and getting the benefits that go along
with it. Amendment 2 claims to ban "gay marriage" but Florida
already has multiple laws saying same-sex marriage is illegal. Not
just one, but we as Floridians have FOUR laws saying that prohibit
this (Florida Statute 741.04, Florida Statute 741.212, Florida Statute
741.212, Florida Statute 741.212). This amendment is not meant to
target homosexuals and by voting 'yes' you are not affecting them in
Florida. If they have chosen to live here they already know they can
not get married. This amendment is indeed targeting "one man one
woman" relationships that have chosen for personal reasons not to
join together in marriage, but live together in peace.
I would also like to talk about the church view on this amendment.
I found this excerpt on Yes2Marriage.org and it was a little disturbing
to know that no longer is church about worship. One should not use
the church to impose their political or personal views on others. "The
Yes2Marriage group sent out an "urgent" e-mail last week calling on
pastors to preach in favor of the amendment on Oct. 19. It's calling
the date "Stand for Marriage Sunday." The group is also selling $150
"church action kits," with yard signs, bumper stickers, fliers, sample
sermons and a DVD to show in church." By all means, religions
have the right not to sanction or perform sanie-sex marriages and
individuals have every right to consider them wrong. My question to
the churches who took part in this would be, why are you preaching
about this amendment instead of the word of God? What about
divorce and adultery and those other sins? Last time I checked this
amendment was not in the Bible, which is what you are at church to
learn, you are there to get closer to God and learn his word which
does indicate that all sins are equal and God himself chooses who
will enter his pearly gates.
There are always two sides to every story...make sure you know
them both.

perhaps because of its
durability.
Several remedies have
been associated with topaz.
Carried near the stomach,
it was supposed to protect
against alimentary disorders.
Worn near the heart, it was
believed to prevent thirst.
Those plagued with asthma
or epilepsy were advised
to carry it, as were those
afflicted with gout, insomnia,
or respiratory ailments.
Lunacy, poison, the Evil
Eye, sudden death, and
anger were among the more
calamitous events that topaz
was supposed to prevent.
In medieval folklore, it
performed more modest
tasks: curing flatulence,
hemorrhoids, plague, and
temper tantrums. Students
carried it to sharpen their
intellect. Some believed
that it could turn sadness to
happiness. Hindu lore credits
it withI ensuring longevity,
beauty, and success.
November, of course, carries
topaz as its birthstone, so it is

What can you tell me
about some of the pets that
have lived at the White
House? -D. D., Dawson,
Minn.
Answer: Abraham Lincoln
had a turkey named Jack.
Benjamin Harrison called
his goat "His Whiskers,"
and Theodore Roosevelt (for
whom the teddy bear was
named) had a garter snake
named Emily Spinach.
SFranklin Delano Roosevelt
had a Scottish terrier named
Fala. Because the dog needed
regular outings while on
their train trips together, he
earned the canine nickname
of"the informer."The Secret
Service agents complained
that the dog's habits made
it impossible to keep the
President's whereabouts
a secret, since reporters
and others would be tipped
off anytime they saw Fala
in the vicinity. In 1944,
things came to a head
when FDR was accused

by Republicans of sending
an American destroyer to
Alaska to pick up his dog.
He responded with zeal: "I
am accustomed to hearing
malicious falsehoods about
myself.., but I think I have
a right to- resent, to object,
to libelous statements about
my dog."
Richard Nixon became
famous for a speech about
the family dog while he was
Republican vice-presidential
candidate in 1952. In
his case,-the controversy
centered on a campaign gift,
Checkers the dog, given to
Nixon's children. A Texas
supporter had evidently
given the gift, which was
later suspected of being part
of an improper or covered-
up political contribution.
In the so-called "Checkers
speech," Nixon announced,
"... the kids, like all kids,
loved the dog, and I just
want to say this, right now,
that regardless of what they
say about it, we are going to
keep it."

I '-2.. 2-;s2 4~n.


I am Michael Carpenter candidate for Calhoun County Sheriff, and I am once again being attacked personally
instead of philosophically. While my opponents and others are busy fabricating lies and positioning my campaign
in a bad light, I am trying to stay focused on the issues and concerns facing all Calhoun County residents. I am
proud to see that my platform of ideas and issues has my opponents running scared. Instead of debating or
debunking my ideas, they instead lie about and disparage my personal character. A famous person once said,
"When they start trashing you personally, it means you are winning". What the people that oppose me appear to be
doing may be against the very Laws they swore to uphold and protect. Posing for and distributing a text message
with a picture of my campaign sign in the background distributed for the purpose of depicting me as a violator of
the law. It appears that Florida Statute's Chapter 112, Section 112.313 (6) & (8) and Chapter 104, section 104.31
(1) (a) may have been violated.
No officer of a county shall use his authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with an election or
influencing another person's vote or affecting the result.
No public officer shall corruptly use or attempt to use his official position or any property or resource which
may be within his trust, to secure a special benefit for himself or others.
A public officer may not disclose information to the general public gained by his official position except for
information relating exclusively to governmental practices, for his personal gain or the benefit of another person.
Therefore I am taking appropriate action. I want to be your Chief Law Enforcement Officer. I want to make sure
that what is happening to me, NEVER, happens to you. The worst honest thing one of the candidates could say
is I have managed my investments and my own money wisely. As I have stated publicly, I have worked all across
the United States, and having an office in Augusta Ga. afforded me the opportunity to have one centrally located
office. He did not tell you that I have property in South Carolina, Hephzibah Ga., and in the following counties in
Florida; Leon, Franklin, Liberty, and Calhoun. As the newspaper ads and cards I have handed out states "I own a
real-estate management company". I have abided by the laws and I will swear to uphold the same. Vote Michael
Carpenter your new Sheriff.

Dear Calhoun County Citizens:
The time is drawing near to Election Day and it has been
an honor and privilege to have had the opportunity to serve
you and our children as Superintendent of Schools. During
the past four years the school board and I have worked
together to improve the quality of education and facilities
in our school district.
Upon entering,the offices as your new superintendent,
the school board and I extensively reviewed and studied
our present facilities for over three years. Together we had
the courage and fortitude to address our aging facilities and
apply for $24.5 million of Special Facilities Funding from the
Florida Department of Education to build a new Blountstown
High School and move Blountstown Middle School into
the current BHS facilities. This is the first time Calhoun
County has requested Special Facilities Funding to build I '
new schools. In addition, the school board has developed
the district's first facilities building plan that addresses short
and long range goals from 2008 to 2020.
With voter approval of the one-half cent sales tax in
January 2008, we have reduced the millage rate from 2.0
mills to 1.41 mills. We will continue to review the sales
tax revenue with the goal of reducing the millage even
further!
I am asking for your support and vote an November
4th. It is my goal to continue Calhoun County's tradition of
EXCELLENCE by providing leadership that focuses on:
Maintaining our schools district's grade "A"-as
designated by DOE.
Keeping all students as top priority in all decision :
making
Monitoring of academic programs and teaching
strategies to ensure high school achievement.
Strengthening and expanding vocational, fine arts and
dual enrollment programs. (Imnlementino services academy

the photo and text message was to harm my campaign by tar-
nishing my character. I expect a vigorous campaign, on the is-
sues, and am not afraid to defend my positions on those issues.
Now, more than ever, Calhoun County needs a Sheriff that will
lead by example, and hold all in the department accountable for
their actions. It is supposed to be a BADGE of HONOR, NOT a
SHIELD. I make this promise to the citizens of this county; I will
not compromise my integrity and Christian faith by engaging in
immoral and unethical campaign techniques, ever!

Liberty County celebrates Weatherization Day Oct. 30


Liberty County will be celebrating Weatherization Day on
October 30, 2008. Please come by and see us at our of-
fice to pick up an application and meet our staff. We are
located upstairs in the courthouse. If you have any ques-
tions, please feel free to call us at 643-2692.

The Department of Energy's Weatherization Assistance
Program reduces the energy burden on low-income fami-
lies by installing cost effective, energy efficiency mea-
sures.

In 2007 we weatherized 19 units. These households save
an average of $200 annually on their energy bills after the
weatherization work is complete.

The dollar savings alone make it a big difference for the
families. In addition weatherization makes the home cool-


er in the summer and cooler in the summer and warmer
Sin the winter and safer which is our #1 priority.

Weatherization technicians use computerized energy au-
dits and advanced diagnostic technologies, to determine
the most cost-effective measures for each home. They
also access related health and safety conditions, such
' ~as carbon monoxide and gas leaks.

Weatherization work makes a daily impact on
low-income families. It also benefits the com-
munity by keeping more money in the local
economy (rather than "exporting" energy dol-
lars), employed trained weatherization crews
and contractors, reducing power plant emissions,
and improving the local government.

In the ad to the right from eight years ago, Sheriff Tatum mentions

getting "fighting mad" about injustice and unfairness. In the same ad he

promises to "take care" of our deputies through their pay. The Sheriffs

Department currently starts deputies at $26,000 per year, which is far less

than state correctional salaries. However Sheriff Tatum has found the money

to pay his secretary $41,999.99 per year. Talk about unfairness!


This document had to be retrieved

from the Fl. Division of retirement

for staff salaries was denied by

David Tatum, which was in violation

Bozeman ends playoff hopes


for Blountstown Tigers 13-12


by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
With less than two minutes to go, the Blountstown Tigers
had their playoff hopes dashed as the Bozeman Bucks scored
to take a 13-12 lead in their district football contest.
The Tigers scored first in the contest after they blocked a
Buck punt. The Tigers converted the turnover into a touchdown
to take a six point lead. The extra point was blocked.
BHS scored again in the second quarter when Malcolm
Ivory carried the pigskin across the goal line. The two point
conversion failed and BHS led 12-0.
The Tigers looked to be overcoming an injury-riddled
season to keep their playoff hopes alive. Needing a win to
have a chance to make the playoff, the Tigers were doing all
the right things in the first half. They were stopping the Bucks
from putting together long drives as well as eliminating costly
mistakes. That streak stopped in the second half.
Facing fourth down, the Tigers were forced to punt. The
snap was over the head of the punter and bounced around near,


the end zone. The punter picked up the ball and attempted
to advance it but he was tackled inside the three yard line.
Bozeman made the Tigers pay for the mistake and scored to
cut the BHS lead to 13-7.
Late in the fourth quarter Bozeman put together their only
sustained drive of the night. The Buck's drive ended with a
touchdown to give Bozeman a 13-12 lead with just over one
minute left in the game.
The Tigers' last gasp to make the playoffs fell short and
BHS was eliminated from the playoffs.
The Tigers host Chipley in-a rivalry' game Halloween
night.
BHS Head Coach Greg Jordan says given the rivalry
the two teams have had in the past he expects an exciting
game.
"Anytime we face Chipley we know they are going to bring
the best the can out on the field and we don't do the same

Despite a close first half,

Dawgs lose to Jay 41-14

by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
The Liberty County Bulldogs dropped to 3-4 on the season
after losing 41-14 to Jay despite playing close for most of the
first half.
A LCHS fumble on the second offensive play of the game
was picked up by Jay and carried for a touchdown and a quick
7-0 lead by the home team.
The Bulldogs responded with a long drive that was capped
by a one yard touchdown run by LCHS quarterback Terrance
Evans. The scored tied the game.
Jay was able to pull ahead 14-7 on a 35 yard draw play.
On the play, the Bulldogs missed a tackle in the backfield and
paid for the mistake. Late in the first half, time management
came back to bite Liberty.
The Bulldogs had the ball late in the first half, but stopped
the clock on successive running plays by running out of
bounds. Unable to run out the half the Bulldogs were forced
to give Jay one last shot at a first half score. The Royals took
advantage of the mistake and took a 21-7 lead into the half.
Jay received the second half kick off and put the game away
by marching down the field and taking a 28-7 lead.
Down 41-7, Liberty's Nick Pitts scored for the Bulldogs to
make the final score 41-14.
LCHS Head Coach Grant Grantham said that despite the
lopsided score the Bulldogs actually played "pretty good."
Grantham said, "We actually blocked pretty well, and we
stayed within our game ... Jay has a solid team, but if a few
things had gone our way early it would have been a very close
contest."
Grantham said he was proud of the play by the linemen
and pointed out Shawn Arrant as someone that had a very
strong game.
The Bulldogs travel to Sneads for a Halloween night district
contest. Both teams are out of the playoff race and are playing
for pride.

of respondents reported making

are beneficial garden visitors


Florida has plenty of
spiders, and you've probably
seen them around your
landscape; you may have
even run into one of their
webs. Before you destroy
that spine-chilling web, just
remember that most aren't
harmful to people and many
are considered beneficial.
Spiders are beneficial
inhabitants of any garden
because of their biological
control of pest insects.
Spiders are considered
to be the most important
terrestrial predators, eating
tons of pest insects or other
small arthropods every year.
Spiders are general predators
that are willing to eat almost
any insect they can catch.
They are abundant and found'
in most habitats.
One rather scary looking
spider commonly found in
our area is the banana spider.
Nephila clavipes is a large size
and brightly colored species
of the orb-web spider family.
Nephila comes from Ancient
Greek, meaning "fond of
spinning." Most people call
them banana or golden silk'
spiders, but other common
names are calico spider, giant
wood spider, golden silk orb
weaver and writing spiders.
The 'golden' refers to the
color of the silk, not the color
of the spider, for the web of
a mature female has yellow
threads which look like rich
gold in the sunshine.
The banana spider preys
on a wide variety of small to
medium sized flying insects,
which include mosquitoes,
grasshoppers, stinkbugs, leaf-
footed bugs, bees, butterflies,
flies, small moths and wasps.
Banana spiders have even
been seen feeding on beetles


by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County _
and dragonflies. Oddly. some
banana spiders are reported to
display an almost manic fear "
of cockroaches. Itis though ht
the cockroach's j
fastmovements e1
and large, dark
shape cause some of the f
species to run from or
ignore a perfectly
good meal.
Because
of its size, people
sometimes assume
that thebanana spider
is dangerous to people. In
reality, it is a shy spider
(as nearly, all spiders are).
Just know this species is
considered medically
harmless to humans. There-
is little danger to a healthy
adult from an encounter with
the banana spider. It will only
bite if held or pinched and
the bite itself will produce a
localized pain with a slight
redness, which quickly goes
away. On the whole, the bite
is much less severe than a bee
string. It is best avoided, but
it won't kill you.
Another common web-
weaving spider is the spiny-
orb weaver. One of the more
colorful spiders in Florida,
it is not as large as some
of the other common orb
weavers. It is, however,
easily recognizable because
of its "crab" shape and six
pointed abdominal projections
frequently referred to as
"spines."
The spines on the abdomen
may have an anti-predator
function; however, spiny orb
weavers are small so they may
be hard for a predator to see,


'I


much lessattack.
Othercominonnames
are crab-like orbweaver,
spinybacked orbweaver and
spiny orbweaver spider.
While many think they
already have an abundance
of spiders, there are ways
to attract spiders to your
landscape. You can provide
spider habitat by covering
bare dirt with mulch, creating
a "wild" area in your yard,
planting dense shrubs
and coniferous trees, and
providing a water source such
as a pond.
Yes, it may require time
for some humans to take
a liking to spiders, or at
least to reduce their level of
disgust or fear. However,
you're likely to develop a
new found admiration and
appreciation for spiders ifyou
ever witness their beneficial
works--especially when you
come across one of their
large webs filled with the
carcasses of blood-sucking
mosquitoes and other small
biting flyers.

Workshop on
freshwater turtle
harvests planned
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
will begin hearing input on the
harvest of Florida's freshwater
turtles.
On Thursday, Nov. 20, the
FWC will collect information
from turtle experts, including
scientists and fishermen, and from
concerned residents regarding a
long-term plan for the harvest of
freshwater turtles. The meeting
will be 10 a.m. 4 p.m. atthe Tampa
Port Authority Board Room,
1101 Channelside Dr. in Tampa.
Concerns over the increased
demand for freshwater turtles led
the FWC to consider what impact
the harvests have on the species.
The FWC recently enacted
a new rule on the harvest of
freshwater turtles, further
restricting their harvest. The
new rule limits the harvest of
Swild Florida freshwater turtles
to five per day per person. Each
fisherman with a commercial
license will be allowed to harvest
an additional 15 Florida softshell
turtles per day, for a total of 20
per day.
The FWC passed this rule
to protect freshwater turtle
populations while it develops
a long-term comprehensive
strategy for sustainable use and
conservation of amphibian and
reptile populations.

o Co co.l B stt

for Liberty Co. School Board Member District 1


It is the last week prior to the election of 2008. This elec-
tion gives us a lot to think of before we cast our votes.
The leadership for the United States and our county de-
pends on our votes. Who do we vote for and why? Who
can we count on to lead us to excellence? We ask our-
selves who will be best? We expect our leaders to
have a high set of ethics, morals, values, and in-
tegrity to follow. We expect them to do the right
thing when no one is looking (integrity). We ex-
pect them to act with the principles, qualities, I-- 1
and courage we believe them to have (morals "Acce hina
and values). We expect them to make good deci- & Juce
sions based on the ethical standards they have set
forth. Candidates do not achieve good ethics, mor-
als, values, and integrity overnight or just at election time. They
have to live it day in and day out. I haven't just started! I have
been interested in the achievement of our children for a long
time. I coached little league football and helped start the first
organized youth sports program in Liberty County twenty-nine
years ago.
I don't just show up at events during election years. I have been
doing it for years. When I was first elected, I worked to bring
sports programs back to Hosford to help build more community
V e.C.

Candidate fc
School Board M


involvement. Now, the Hosford Panther Girl Volleyball Team
won the first ever Panhandle Conference Championship
from seven area local schools. Congratulations Girls!
I would also like to recognize the Tolar Bulldogs for host-
ing the tournament and representing our county well.
These teams not only help to instill a high self-
Sesteem for these students, but for their fellow
students that support them within each com-
munity. These teams build community sup-
port for the school and support that these
aTfenges children need in their formative years. It helps
.edna" give them good ethics, morals, values, and integrity
for the rest of their lives. These are our future leaders.
Remember it takes a community to raise a child. Let
us continue to support not only these programs but other pro-
grams in our school system and county.
Thank-you for past support and input into decisions we make
everyday affecting our children. Please remember, get out
and vote for the candidate of your choice, the one that repre-
sents the morals and values you wish to be represented. I hope
I am that candidate for School Board District 1.
Thank you,

TALKWI
Questions & Answers
About Our Environment

Backyardfire pits have be-
come the latest must-have gar-
dening feature. How bad are
they on the environment? -- Mi-
chael 0 'Laughlin, Tigard, OR
With Fall setting in and the
mercury starting to drop, many
of us want to extend our time
outdoors, and sitting around a
backyard fire pit has become
one of the most popular means
to do so. But even though it may
be fun-s'mores anyone?-it is
not good for the environment,
especially during times when
air quality is already poor.
It's hard toassess the larger
impact of backyard fire pits on
local or regional air quality,
but no one questions the fact
that breathing in wood smoke
can be irritating if not down-
right harmful. According to the
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA), so-called fine
particles (also called particulate
matter) are the most dangerous
components of wood smoke
from a health perspective, as
they "can get into your eyes and
respiratory system, where they
can cause health problems such
as burning eyes, runny nose and
illnesses such as bronchitis."
Fine particles also aggravate
chronic heart and lung diseases,
and have been linked to prema-
ture deaths in those already suf-
fering from such afflictions. As
such, the EPA advises that any-
one with congestive heart fail-
ure, angina, chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease, emphysema
or asthma should steer clear of
wood smoke in general. Chil-
dren's exposure to wood smoke
should also be limited, as their
respiratory systems are still de-
veloping and they breathe more
air (and air pollution) per pound
of body weight than -adults.
Another potential risk to us-
ing a backyard fire pit is spark-
ing a forest fire. Some commu-
nities that are surrounded by
forestland voluntarily institute
seasonal burn bans so that resi-
dents won't inadvertently start a
forest fire while they are out en-
joying their backyard fire pits.
If you live in one of these areas,
you probably already know it
and wolld be well advised to
follow the rules.
If you must light that back-
yard fire pit, take some pre-
cautions to limit your. friends'
and family's exposure to wood
smoke. The Maine Bureau ofAir
Quality recommends using only
seasoned firewood and burning
it in a way that promotes com-
plete combustion-small, hot
fires are better than large smol-
dering ones-to minimize the
amount of harmful smoke. The
moral of the story: If you need
to burn, bum responsibly.

Q: How much selenium do we
need, and what foods supply it?
A: Selenium is a mineral and
one of many antioxidants in our
food supply that may help lower
risk of cancer. While no dosage
amount has been identified for its
potential role in cancer preven-
tion, the Recommended Dietary
Allowance (RDA) for its role
in ndrmal cellular function is
55 micrograms (mcg) for adult
men and women. Seafood, meat
and grains are the major dietary
sources. You get 35 to 75 mcg in a
three-ounce portion offish, about
25 mcg in a 3-ounce portion of
poultry or meat, and 15-35 mcg
in one cup of pasta or rice or two
slices of bread. Vegetables and
fruits generally supply only small
amounts that add up as you eat
more; one exception is the 18 to
36 mcg in a cup of cooked mush-
rooms. Also note that you can
get the entire RDA in one Brazil
nut. While most everyone in the
U.S. gets well over the RDA, it's
important not to overdo it. The
National Academy of Science
warns that too much selenium
can cause nerve damage, hair
loss and digestive disturbances.
To avoid potential problems, the
maximum amount of selenium
(from food and supplements)
considered safe is 400 mcg a
level only likely to be reached
with excessive fortified foods and
supplements.
Q: Which cocktail is lower in
Conion phytochemicals, a mar-
tini or a margarita ?
A: Each of those drinks can
be made in many variations that
change the calorie load. A small
martini might weigh in with
about 120 calories slightly low-
er than a margarita but even a
small addition like lime juice can
-brings calories closer to 160. In
addition, some people make mar-
garitas with sweet and sour mix
.and extra juice, or martinis with
extra flavors (chocolate liqueur,
for example), all of which add
calories. And don't forget that
alcohol in itself is a concentrated
source of calories, so increased
portions make calories increase
quickly. Although one standard
drink is defined as one-and-a-
half ounces of 80-proof liquor,
many drinks contain double that
amount or more. Just because it's
served in one glass does not mean
it's considered "one drink." For
weight control (and other health
and safety concerns) be mindful
of what and how much you drink,
perhaps alternating alcohol with
club soda or other low-calorie,
nonalcoholic options.
AICR's Nutrition Hotline is a free service
that allows you to ask a registered dietitian
questions about diet, nutrition and cancer.
Access it online at .www.aicr.org/hotline or
by phone (1-800-843-8114) 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
ET Monday-Friday. AICR is the only major
cancer charity focused exclusively on the link
between diet, nutrition and cancer. Itprovides
education programs that help Americans
learntto make changes for lower cancer risk.
AICR also supports innovative research in
cancer prevention and treatment at universi-
ties, hospitals and research centers. It has
provided more than $78 million for research
in diet, nutrition and cancer.

Florida joins FTC and states targeting credit


repair operations in 'Operation Clean Sweep'


TALLAHASSEE Attorney General Bill
McCollum announced Florida's participation in a
collaborative effort targeting credit repair operators,
many of which deceptively claim they can remove
any and all negative information from consumers'
credit reports. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
and 23 states joined forces in Operation Clean Sweep,
a nationwide initiative to address this consumer
protection issue.
"Whether through credit repair, debt management,
debt settlement, or interest rate reduction schemes, it"
is unacceptable to deceptively convince consumers
facing financial distress to part with their money,"
said Attorney General McCollum.


Collectively, the FTC and the states took actions
against 36 companies engaged in potentially
deceptive or misleading conduct. Allegations
include making false and misleading statements to
consumers, charging advance fees for credit repair
services, violating federal and state laws governing
credit repair organizations and deceptive and unfair
practices.
The actions taken in Florida were announced by
the Attorney General last week as part of a consumer
protection initiative targeting potentially improper
tactics in Florida's debt relief industry. Those actions
included a lawsuit filed against Dunedin-based
Enterprise Technology Group, Inc., doing business


as Ameritrust Financial Card, and settlements with
16 defendants associated with New LeafAssociates,
LLC, a Pinellas County company engaged in a "debt
elimination" scheme.
Credit repair schemes are just one type of the
broader class of debt relief schemes which prey on
consumers in financial distress. Claims to improve
credit or eliminate bad credit are sometimes part of
other operations claiming to negotiate or eliminate
debt. Consumers need to be cautious of firms offering
debt relief, including debt management, credit
counseling, and credit card rate reduction services.
Often, the goal is to get the consumer's money, with
no real benefit provided to the consumer in return.

Porcelain Veneers '
Thanks to reality television shows
specializing in extreme makeovers of
every description, there has been an e
increase in the interest in porcelain .
veneers. Some people even come '..,.. .
into the dental office asking for certain -'
laboratory-produced veneers as if they. .
were brand names.
Basically, porcelain veneers are very I .
thin (0.5mm to 1.0mm), custom-made
restoration, which are cemented onto
individual front teeth to change the
shape and/or the color of the teeth to Dr. Larry J. Coo
create a more esthetic, cosmetically-
pleasing smile.
Some type of veneer process has been used in dentistry since
the late 1960's. The first veneers were made of composite resin,
or white filling material, using a pre-made celluloid matrix cut to
fit the tooth or, more frequently, just sculpted free-hand by the
dentist. Now they have evolved to very thin, delicate flakes ol
porcelain, custom-made for each tooth by a skilled lab technician.
These tiny, fragile pieces of art are then cemented to the tooth
with very specialized cements developed solely for that purpose.
The positive side of this reality trend iethat people have be-
come more aware of the look of their teeth ind what modem
dentistry can do for them. The riedia has done a great job ol
educating the public as to what is available and that these proce-
dures really are possible for them.
Unfortunately, the reality show trend has also created the idea
that porcelain veneers are the treatment of choice for every dental
problem and that every patient could benefit from them. Careful
treatment planning and case selection are necessary to ensure a
successful porcelain veneer case.
Porcelain veneers are perhaps the most beautiful, life-like
restorations dentistry has ever produced. However, they are ex-
tremely fragile and prone to breakage or even complete loss ii
placed under too much stress. Teeth that have little or no previous
decay are the best candidates for porcelain veneers. In cases ol
a heavy bite, wear, or teeth that have had many previous fillings,
full crowns may be a better choice.
Recently a long-standing dental manufacturer and sup-
plier named Den-Mat has begun marketing a product called
"Lumineers" directly to the public. The attractive aspect of "Lu-
mineers" to both patient and doctor is that there is no tooth prepa-
ration involved. That means no injections, no tooth preparation,
no temporaries, just an impression to capture the shape of your
teeth, and then the "Lumineers" are applied to the front is the
existing tooth. Sounds great, right??
The catch is that teeth are contoured naturally to be in har-
mony with the gum tissues. In most cases, if thickness or bulk
is added to the front of a tooth, it creates an unhealthy situation .
for the gum around that tooth. The result can be red, bleeding,
irritated tissue around the new veneers.
The important lesson is that veneers are not a quick fix for
every dental situation, even if it is "as seen on television." Only
you and your dentist, after careful consideration, can determine
a cosmetic treatment plan for you that will be beautiful, healthy,
and long-lasting.

Follow these tricks

for a safe Halloween
TALLAHASSEE-Chief Financial Officer and State Fire Marshal
Alex Sink urges parents to remember that while Halloween is fun, it
also can be hazardous. Sink warns that trick-or-treaters should not
carry candles or other burning devices and should not wear loose or
ill-fitting costumes.
Sink is joining the National Association of State Fire Marshals
(NASFM) in trying to reduce Halloween-related fire injuries.
Common Halloween decorations include candles andjack-o-lanters,
and even momentary contact with certain Halloween costumes can
be tragic.
"When it comes to fire, tragedy can occur in an instant," said Fire
Marshal Sink. "Big or flowing costumes can pose afire risk, and some
costume materials simply are not flame-resistant. Parents must take
steps to ensure costumes are safe and appropriate."
Sink and the NASFM offer the following safety advice:
Avoid flowing and loose-fitting costumes, as well as masked and
over-the-head designs, which can impede vision or make removal
difficult in the event of fire. Costumes that are snug or form-fitting
are less likely to come into contact with ignition sources, and children
are also less likely to trip over them while walking.
SLook for labels that indicate the costume is made of flame-
resistant materials. These costumes, if they come into contact with a
flame, are supposed to stop burning if the'flame is removed.
If you cannot find a label indicating flame resistance, choose
costumes that are made primarily of polyester or nylon fabric. Such
fabrics typically do not ignite from a small flame and if they do, the
resulting 'fire may bum slowly and readily extinguish. If you are
making costumes from scratch, choose polyester or nylon fabrics for
greater flame resistance.
SCostumes made from cotton, rayon, acetate or their blends can be
more dangerous because these fabrics are inherently more flammable.
If not treated to be flame resistant, such costumes may ignite quickly
if they brush across or into a small open flame or very hot surface.
Avoid costumes made of these types of fabrics.
The addition of fake fur, stringy strands, lace trim, ornamentation,
- added padding and foam, imprinted or stenciled designs and flimsy
material can make any costume more flammable and increase a
wearer's fire risk. Such designs should be avoided.
Always supervise children as they go trick or treating, taking
special care to avoid lit candles and jack-o-lanterns, high heat or
flaming decorations.
If a costume does catch fire, remember to "Stop, Drop and
Roll." Be sure to remind children of this before they set out to trick
or treat.
When you decorate for Halloween, use battery-operated or
electric lights that have been tested for safety by a recognized testing
laboratory. Check each set of lights, new or old, for damage. Throw
out damaged sets.
Do not use candles or other open flames, inside or outside. Keep
any small open flames away from curtains, decorations or other objects
that could catch fire.
Do not overload extension cords.

Association ofState Fire Marshals, visit the NASFMweb site at www.
firemarshals.org. For more information about Florida s Division of

There is NO excuse for thousands and thousands of
dollars worth of lunchroom equipment being -r --


left outside to ruin!! This is your current
administration and Grant Williams at work!


Simple Facts? $996,000.00 Investment? Just tell us the simple TRUTH!
1. We will not be reimbursed for the $996,000.00 for architect's' fees.
S*You can only be reimbursed for the, school you build.
*The $996,000 was for the 80 acre site on CR 275.
*The current site in Blountstown is approximately 5 acres. You CAN NOT put a school designed
for 80 acres on 5 acres.
*A new set of plans for the 5 acre site in Blountstown must be drawn and the approximate cost
is $635,000.
*If the new school is built in Blountstown the cost of the new set of plans is what we will be
reimbursed.
*We will not be reimbursed for the $996,000.00 for CR 275.
*Supt. Neves negotiated the fee with the architect for the CR 275 site. The architect's fee
should not have been be paid UNLESS and UNTIL the school board receives the money from
the state.
2. If re-elected the current school administration may move the new consolidated school back to
CR 275 after the election.
*In last week's paper both Neves and Williams stated that "a complete set of plans had to be
finalized before funding would be approved for the school"
*The only plans that are finalized are for the administrations' "absolute perfect" CR 275 site.
*As of today there are still no finalized plans to build the school on five acres in Blountstown.
*The motion to purchase the 80 acres on CR 275 is still on the table.
*The current property owner of the the 80 acres is in the process of changing the land use and
the school could be built on this site.
*On August 12, 2008 Chairman Grant Williams once again refused to rescind the vote to
consolidate. If consolidation is over, why won't the current administration rescind the vote to
consolidate?
*The motion to consolidate Blountstown High School and Altha High School is still in effect.
*Grant Williams has flip-flopped on more than one occasion.
3. Chairman Grant Williams voted for the largest tax increase in Calhoun County's history.
*During the past 4 years the Calhoun County schools budget has increased 33% even though
we have 50 less students.
*The Calhoun County school budget for 2004-05 was $19.9 million. The budget for 2007-08 is
$26.5 million.
*Grant Williams voted for a 490% tax increase which is the largest tax increase in Calhoun
County's flistory.

Lady Wildcats down Gators in regular season finale


Not only did the Altha Lady JV
Wildcats do their part in battling
breast cancer last Monday but
they also did work on the Wewa
Lady JV Gators and defeated
them, 25-6 and 25-7.
Aerial Folsom opened up a
6-0 lead for Altha in Game 1.
Kimberly Wiltse extended the
Lady Wildcats lead to 14-3 with
her 5 straight service points.
Aerial would finish offWewa with
her 5 straight service points.
The Lady JV Wildcats started
slowly in Game 2 only leading
6-3 until Kimberly Wiltse put the
game out of reach at 19-4 with
her 12 straight service points.
The Top Lady Cat in scoring
was Kimberly Wiltse who had
a season high 17 service points
along with 4 aces. Aerial Folsom
was good for 13 service points
and 5 aces. Marissa Coleman
chalked up 3 service points and
an ace. Angela Waldron was
good for 2 service points and
Sharlyn Smith added a service
point.
The Lady JV Wildcats ended
the season with a remarkable
16-5 record. Coach Carylee
Sewell did a great job of getting
these girls to ready to play each
match as a cohesive unit. Coach
Sewell developed their mental
toughness that was evident by
the fact that they only played
5 3-game matches during this
season. The rest of the time
they defeated their opponents in


2 straight games. They lost 3 of
those 3-game matches and 2 of
those 3 losses were to 3A schools,
Florida High and Marianna.
Caitlyn Bruner and Hannah
Waldorff stepped onto the court
for their last regular season home
game last Monday because it was
Senior Night for the Altha Lady
Varsity Wildcats (6-14). They
and their teammates made it a
memorable one as they defeated
the Wewa Gators in a 5-game
match.
Serving first in Game 1 for
Altha, Waldorff reeled off 5
straight service points to give
her team a 6-2 lead. Next, Emily
Brooks made it a 10-3 game and
Rebekah Wiltse gave her Lady
Wildcats a 16-6 lead with her 5
straight service points. Altha's
lead grew to 13, 24-9, courtesy
of Cortney Harris's 4 straight
service points. Wewa's return
of Harris's fourth serve out of
bounds gave the Lady Wildcats
a 25-11 win.
Altha lost their focus in Game
2 and Wewa tied the match with
a 25-17 victory.
In Game 3 Wewa held a 7-4
lead until Christy Simmons tied
it at 9 with her 4 straight service
points. The score remained tied
until the Lady Gators went back
on top, 15-13. They stretched
it to a 5-point lead and that's
when Altha began to chip away.
Simmons brought her team back
to within a point, 20-21. Wewa

Donors sought for
1st Generation
Scholarship at

Chipola College
MARIANNA-The Chipola
College Foundation is seeking
donations for the First Generation
in College Scholarship for the 2009
Spring Semester.
The Florida Legislature created the
scholarship program and appropriated
funds for each community college to
match dollar for dollar with private
contributions. These new scholarships,
which will be funded for the upcoming
Spring 2009 semester if the local
matching dollars are raised, will be
awarded to students whose parents did
not complete a bachelor's degree.
Foundation Director Julie Fuqua,
says, "Chipola serves many first
generation college students and the
potential impact this scholarship
program can have on their lives, as
well as their families, is tremendous.
Last year through the generosity of
donors, and state matching funds,
Chipola was able to award 25 students
with First Generation scholarships."
Chipola is eligible to receive up to
$12,597 in First Generation in College
Scholarship state matching funds this
year. Donations will be matched dollar
for dollar to enable Chipola to award
over $25,000-to first generation in
college students during this school
year.
First Generation in College
Scholarship donations must be received
by Nov. 14 to qualify for the dollar for
dollar match. Donations may be mailed
to: Chipola College Foundation, 3094
Indian Circle, Marianna, FL 32446.

Office at (850) 718-2478.

ELECT TOMMY




MCCLELLAN

Superintendent of Calhoun County Schools


Four years ago, you
should have received
a letter from Mary
Sue Neves that was
addressed to Dear
Concerned Taxpay-
er. Here are some of A
the direct quotes from
that letter. "In order
to keep up with new ., ../
building needs, as well
as repairs to existing
Calhoun County Schools' facilities, the
proposal of a 2-mill increase in property
tax in the nearest future is a possibility.
As life-long resident and property owner
in Calhoun County, I believe there are
other resources that should be explored
before increasing our property taxes
Under Superintendent McClellan's 2-mill
increase proposal, the property owner's
school tax will increase by over 49%
over a two year period. Two questions
immediately come to mind. Fist, have all
other avenues, such as budgetary man-
agement styles as well as fiscal review
and adjustments, been considered?
Second, can we as property owners af-
ford another tax increase? Now is the
time for a change in Leadership?
Also a letter went out to Calhoun Coun-
ty school personnel which read Dear
Educator: "Are you aware of the use of
monies for salaries of employees of Cal-
houn County School System? These re-
cords are public knowledge. Check the
facts. Are you receiving your fair share
of the budget?"
Also I was accused of increasing my
salary 17% during my 4 years of office.
First, of all the superintendent's salary
is set by the state as is the salary of all
constitutional officers in the courthouse.
I did have 2 incentive programs which
did increase my salary to $91,434.00
of which $8,000.00 of the total was due
to those incentives I earned from the
state through training programs. My op-
ponent has a salary of $99,484.00 with
the same 2 incentive programs. That
was a cheap shot to make it look like
I set my own salary, which wasn't true.
Neither of us have-any control over the
proposed salary. Also I did not propose


a 2-mill tax increase.
Also my 2004-2005
total budget was
S$19,925,994.81 com-
S, pared to Mrs. Neves'
2007-2008 budget
Sf iof $26,508,355.60.
During the same pe-
riod district direc-
tors have increased
.! from $66,160.00 to
$72,920.00. BHS
principal from $73,197.00 to $80,675.00.
Since my term we have added read-
ing coaches, job coach, an assistant
to the assistant superintendent, an as-
sistant principal to the CARE program
with around 15-20 students while Carr
School with around 300 students has no
assistant principal.
You were told if you vote for Tommy
McClellan your taxes will increase, and
the district will try to close Altha School.
Well, I guess that those who voted for
me nearly saw that happen. Friends; I
tried to be conservative, and we kept a
$5,000,000 reserve balance to fall back
on. Now our reserve balance is about
half that amount with nothing to show
for it but more promises. I don't want to
use negative campaigning, but I have to
reveal the truth, and compare the 2 ad-
ministrations, and let the voters decide.
However, I do agree with the statement
that said we need a change.
Lately my mind has been on my neph-
ew, a proud Marine of 16 years, who
was wounded in Afghanistan with a shot
to the head, and been in a coma ever
since. I have campaigned hard to win
your confidence, but lately my priorities
have been on my family. I was not inten-
tionally ignoring my voters. God, family,
and friends come first, and everything
else falls in line somewhere after that. I
count the people of Calhoun County as
family and friends, and I will treat you as
such if elected. Your kids will also be
my kids. Your schools my schools. My
office your office. I need your support
please get out and vote for your favorite
candidates. Each vote-is of great impor-
tance. God bless you all, and God bless
the U.S.A.

Doris Burkett

Tax Collector Calhoun County



An Open.Letter to the

Voters of Calhoun County

In thirty-five years as a classroom teacher (and a mother of
five children of my own), I have worked with nine principals and
six superintendents. All of them were people I respected and
likes. But none for whom I felt more respect and admiration
than Mary Sue Neves, who is the best administrator that I
have known.
Near the end of my career, I had the good fortune to work
with Mary Sue Neves- first as my principal and then as my
superintendent. As a principal, Mrs. Neves did not learn what
wa' happening on campus from the reports of other alone.
She had her finger on the pulse of school because she left her
office to see and know her school, her faculty and staff, and
her students. Mrs. Neves knew the problems, the concerns,
the needs, the conflicts, the strengths, and the weaknesses
in the school which was her responsibility. Mary Sue Neves
provided leadership; support, guidance, appreciation, and yes,
even constructive criticism.
As superintendent, Mrs. Neves employs the same
administrative style and skill on a broader scale. She does, of
course, have unparalleled support from strong capable people
in her office, on the school board, and in the community. But
her finger is still on the pulse of the entire school system, as
it was on one school when she was principal. Mrs. Neves still
visits individual schools and classrooms. Mary Sue Neves
knows the concerns of the community, the needs of each
school, the challenges facing her teachers, and the educational
and developmental needs of the students of this district. That
is her job, and she expends every effort to do it well. This is
about the children of Calhoun County, and Mary Sue Neves
still cares about that one student most important to you -your
own child.
Beyond budgets and facilities, personal preferences
and private prejudices, campaign rhetoric and caustic
commentary-the heart of this superintendent's race is the
educations of the children. The bottom line is the students-
their safety, their growth, and the quality of their education.
Mary Sue Neves understands parental concerns-she is
one. Mary Sue Neves understands teacher challenges she
has been one. Mary Sue Neves understands the principal's
roles and responsibilities-she has been one. Finally as
superintendent, Mary Sue Neves understands the many facets
in the management of the overall system for the greatest
benefit to all its stakeholders, but never losing sight of that one
individual most important to you-your own child..
I know these things to be true, because I have worked with
her as my principal, and also as my superintendent. I have
not known a more dedicated educator, or a more effective
administrator in my career as a classroom teacher.
Sincerely,


Shelbie J. Cummings /
Retired Educator
