Hill, who is ~the mother of four boys, said Justin and two of his brothers, age 7 and
10, got off the school bus that afternoon in fr-ont of their~ home on Hwyr. 71, known
as "the Gaskin house." As the kids stepped off the bus, a cat ran from. their house
across the street. The boys ran after it. The bus driver then called the school and had
them contact Hill to alert her that the children had not, gone into their gated yard as
they are supposed to.
After the boys returned with the cat, another cat made a dash across the road fol-
lowed by a dog the family had named "Roscoe."
Hill was already on her way home from work to see about the boys when a south-
bound vehicle came down Hwy. 71 and hit the dog, leaving the injured animal in the
road. *
Her son then ran out to try to help the dog. "When Justin ran out to the road to
pull the dog out, a truck came from the opposite direction and got him," his mother
said. Neighbors went to see about Justin, who was able to stand up but was covered
in abrasions. "He has road rash down his left side and stomach, under his nose and
arm. He looked scary last week," his mom said.
The boy was examined by EMTs, moved to an emergency helicopter and taken to
Tallahassee where he underwent several tests to determine if he had suffered internal
injuries. Remarkably, he had no serious injuries and returned home that evening.
But before she arrived, several people inchiding Blountstown Police Offcer Scot-
ty Norris and Blountstown Fire Chief Ben Hall arrived at the scene. '"They were
unbelievable. They kept me calm," she said. "I want to tell everybody thank you
from the bottom of my heart, from the bus driver, to the police department, to the
ambulance crew to the people on the emergency helicopter."
She also said Justin's teslcher from Bloun~tstown Middle School, Regina Daniels,
was a big help to the family. She got to the hospital before they arrived and helped
them find their way around Tallahassee to and from the hospital.
Justin, who marked his minth birthday Nov. 17, was happy to rejoin his second
grade class this week, his mother said.
The little brown and white dog was badly injured and had to be put down. The
pup was a stray that had been at the family's house for about three months, long
enough to get a name, a few good meals and make friends with three little boys.


and Cucco had previously stated they were going to rob the store
owner and when questioned, the pair admitted their involvement in
Patel's death. The two stated that Sourbeck had driven them to the
store that night. They said Patel was shot during a struggle after
their robbery attempt failed.
According to the Bay County Sheriff's Office, Lee and Cucco
said Sourbeck drove them to the home of Paul Minton Wynn III of
Fountain, where they attempted to sell him the gun. Wynn refused
to buy the weapon but offered to take it to a Joseph Primus Gainer in
Southport, where he believed he could trade it for marijuana.
Gainer, a registered felon and sex offender who is currently on
DOC supervision, traded marijuana worth approximately $250 for
the gun used in the killing. After serving a search warrant, deputies
found the gun at the home Gainer shares with Sarah Lynn Hill.
The six arrested were charged as follows:
Nicholas TyIrone Lee of Alths Open count of murder, armed
robbery with a firearm and possession of more than 20 grams of
marijuana.
Amy Beth Cucco of NW Shelton Blvd, Altha Principle to
armed robbery with a firearm and an open count of murder.
Joshua Robert Sourbeck of 4656 NW Hwy 274, Alths Ac-
cessory after the fact to armed robbery with a firearm and accessory
after the fact to murder.
Paul Minton Wynn, III, of Fountain -,De41ing in stolen prop-
erty and principle to sale of marijuana.
Joseph Primus Gainer of 2203 McCormick Road, Southport
- Dealing in stolen property, felon in possession of a firearm, pos-
session of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession
of marijuana with intent to distribute, sale of marijuana, possession
of drug paraphernalia and violation of probation.

Agency continues to


implement waiver law
TALLAHASSEE On January 1, 2009, Medicaid'waiver
recipients will have their cost plans-adjusted to reflect their
actual spending on services during the prior year. In the 2008
Legislative Session, the legislature approved an adjustment to
individual cost plans to reflect actual dollars spent plus 5 per-
cent or the person's current cost plan, whichever is less.
During November and December, the Agency for Persons
with Disabilities (APD) will be reviewing cost plans from the
2007-08 state fiscal year. Many times an APD customer's cost
plan is approved for more services than are actually used. ~The
Legislature voted to eliminate the unused services from cost
plans as a method to control future spending. ,
The law-Chapter 393.0661 (6) Florida Statues (2008)--de~
fines how the process will work and who will or will not be af-
fected -
Director of the Agency for Persons with Disabilities. Jim De-
Beaugrine said, "The re-basing of cost plans should not elimi-
nate any needed services for the people our agency serves. It
is a cost containment exercise that will assist the agency in
curbing the rapid increase in service requests we see each year.
This effort should not have a dramatic effect on any of our
customers."
The agency will review the plans of the 31,000 waiver re-
cipients to see if any actual reductions in services will occur as
a result of this law. Letters will be mailed to APD customers
mn November making then aware of this legislative require-
ment. The customers adversely affected will have the option
to request a fair hearing if they choose. APD annually serves
about 35,000 Floridians with the developmental disabilities
of mental retardation, autism, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and
Prader-Willi syndrome. .

Seems like everyone and his
-brother is working oil America's "fi-
--nancial problem." The problem isn't
too complicated. Americans need a
paycheck to live and get along. But,
solving the problem is very compli-
--cated. My view is that the solution
is too complicated for politicians,
Sso bring on some experts to figure it


SLinens and Things close all their stores
X'S and people are laid off. The Circuit
RN ER .P City chain has declared bankruptcy.
retired military SunMicroSystems is laying off thou-
w/ithanextensive sands. Financial institutions have shed
domestic and thousands of workers. We don't buy
ues. Helivesin automobiles and dealerships close.
y - The Big Three in Detroit are about to
go under along with their parts suppli-
ers and dealerships. The list goes on.
In normal times, companies come and go in which
some 30 million jobs each year come and go. It's
called "churning" which is a normal economic event
in a large economy. Montgomery Wards were re-
placed by Target stores. In normal economic cycles,
the economy reinvents itself. That's good.
But the kicker is that the American economy does
not operate in a vacuum. The American economy is
integrated into the world economy which is what glo-
balization is all about~. When America's economy fal-
ters the effect is felt around the world, and that is why
representatives from 20 industrialized and emerging
nations met last week in Washington to discuss how
to correct the current~financial problems and how to
avoid another worldwide financial crisis.
Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I'm
not sure. First, the political parties get in the way of
logical thought and solutions. Political ideology is not
the answer.
The current financial crisis is a test for the idea of
America's free market capitalism. Many, including
Mr. Bush, believe that the market will cure all ills.
Just let companies like GM fail, restructure and then
all will be OK. Yes and no.
The role of government is defined in economic
textbooks. Government should spend money on infra-
structure projects which put people to work. Govern-
ment should extend unemployment benefits.
What this does is to start money circulating again.
For the economy to work properly, a dollar should be
spent four times. Priming the financial pump is the
answer and only government has the ability to do that.
Put Americans to work rebuilding America, and the
economy will come alive.


.. The "experts" say that they are working the problem.
. The Secretary of the Treasury says he's working on the
r, problem, but I'm not sure that giving banks large bags
.. of money is the answer. OK, the bank gets money from
the government, but if the ~bank doesn't restructure
home loans for people who can actually pay for their
e.. homes at a reduced rate then giving money to banks
** *is a moot point. The homeowner is still up the creek.
. *My daughter-in-law is a vice president in a local
bank. As she points out, in the old days if someone
. was having problems with paying the mortgage the
borrower would come down to the bank, and the bank
would work out something so that the homeowner
* could continue making a part of the payment until he
e or she got squared away financially.
e ** Now that is not so easy. Mortgages are sold to the
secondary money market, meaning to institutions like
Fannie Mae, who then bundled mortgages that are
sold to investors. Today, all home mortgages aren't
held by the local bank. Most of them are "out yonder"
in the financial ether sphere.
But the financial problem isn't just about mortgag-
es. The issue is more serious than that. The bottom
line is that people must have a job if they are to pay
their mortgage. ~
But the problem isn't just about a job to pay the
mortgage; the basic issue is that people need a job to
buy any and everything. The American economy is
a consumption based economy. We all have to buy
goods and services to keep the economy viable.
We are witnessing the effects of reduced spending.
We don't buy as much gasoline- and the price comes
down. That's good. But we don't buy as much clothes,
computers or household goods and companies like

Thanks to all the loyal Bulldog fans who followed our Lady
Dogs to the Volleyball Regional Semi-final game at Maclay. What
a tremendous group we had! Even though most of our fans had to
drive over an hour we outnumbered Maclay fans two to one. One
Maclay fan expressed how impressed they were to see such a large
group supporting our Lady Dogs.
Our girls fought hard, but Maclay came away with the victory.
Thanks again to all the fans who came out to support our girls.
Congratulations Lady Dogs on a great season.

Pancake Breakfast Dec. 6 to raise


funds to buy back historic fire engine
from Ben Hall, Blountstown Fire Chief
Engine 2 was a 1945 Ford/Pirsch Fire Engine purchased new by the City of Blountstown in 1945 to replace Engine 1, a
1927 American LaFrance originally purchased for the City by Neal Lumber Company.
Engille 2 served not only Blountstown, but the entire western side of Liberty County and all of Calhoun County for nearly
40 years. (I wish we could get that kind of life out of a fire engine now!) Two other fire engines came and went during the
service life of Engine 2; Engine 3, a '64 GMC and Engine 4, a '74 GMC were both in service with Engine 2.
Blountstown Mayor and Former Police Chief Winston Deason remembers one of Engine 2's finest moments as the Eagle
Theater burned in February of 1971. "If it weren't for that Ford fire truck, Blountstown would've burned to the ground!"
he said.
In the late 1980s Engine 2 was sold at a public auction and forgotten for over 20 years. Today, the Blountstown Historical
Society and the Blountstown Fire Department would like to bring this piece of Blountstown history back to our city and
restore it to its original condition. There is much work to be done, and the first hurdle is to raise funds to buy back the
engine from a private citizen. That's where we're asking for our community's help. On Saturday, Dec. 6, Blountstown's
firefighters will be holding a Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser. Connie Clayton of C~onnie's Kitchen has graciously agreed
to allow us to use her restaurant to try to bring Engine 2 back to Blountstown. We'll begin serving pancakes at 6:00 a.m.
and we won't stop until everyone has had at least one! While you're browsing the Christmas Festival on the Square or the
Downtown Farmer's Market, stop in and have a pancake, and help us save this piece of history!
On a personal note: I can only guess how proud some of our former firefighters would be to see Engine 2 traveling the
roads again. I've recollected in brief with former BFD firemen like Truman Holley, George White and the late Oren Clements
about how important this truck was to our area and how many houses this fire engine saved. Forty~ or 50 years from now,

SPEAK UP.
WITH A LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Write: The Calhoun-Libertyd journal
\ ~P.O. Box 556, Bristol 58581
To the editor:
This is a follow up in support of Ms. Patti L. Wood's article in
"Speak Up" on your Nov. 5 edition.
To start with I would like to commend her on bringing one of the
many issues that plague Calhoun County and keep the public in the
dark. This situation is not new, it has been going on for years. The
fine citizens of Calhoun County are constantly being fooled through
the process of making data not inaccessible, as this would violate state
disclosure laws but making it either expensive or altered when they
realize one may be interested in it. I do understand and sympathize
with Ms. Wood in her endeavor. Throughout my life I~ have seen a
lot of change in Calhoun County, a lot of my years have been on the
outside looking in. I have seen governments in a number of different
communities that were ran successfully and efficiently. The people
of this great county are and have been manipulated for a long time
by a few that still retain and hold control over the citizenry of this
county.
Ms. Wood's situation is just another in the whole system in this
county being used to keep the truth concealed. If a few more citizens
would follow suit these situations would stop and theh there may be
some accountability in what is turuy taking place. It would make
Calhoun County a "even" better place to live.
Sincerely, Robert M. (Bob) White

Blountstown Main


Street to host 3rd


annual home tour
Blountstown Main Street will host the 3rd Annual Christmas Tour
of Homes on Friday, Dec. 12, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
This year's Tour of Homes begins at the Blountstown United
Methodist Church on Lake Hilda, 20500 Central Avenue West (Hwy.
20). Built in -1941-42, the designer was one of its members, Corrie
Clark Tucker, who had studied at Emory University. Tickets for the
Tour of Homes may be purchased here the night of the event.
The brick structure is noted for its beautiful stained glass windows,
magnificent pipe organs and carillon, which chimes the hour and half
hour. The church will be decorated in the traditional red and greens
with a stately ten-foot Christmas tree decorated with Chrismon
ornaments made by its members. These white and gold decorations
depict various Christian symbols.
The second stop is the Methodist parsonage next door to the
church, at 20480 Central Avenue West iniBlountstown is the home of
Reverend Charles and Mrs. Shirley Smith, formerly of Murfreesboro,
TN. With them is the youngest of their four children, Stephen who
is a sophomore at Blountstown High School. This brick ranch-style
house, built in the 1950's has a modern interior updated by.the talents
of Shirley. The Smiths have created an amazing aviary out of part of
the screened in back porch filled with Charles' collection~ of exotic
small birds. This is a must see, especially for the kids!
Third on our stop is the Baptist Manse at 17072 South Main Street
(SR 71 South) across the street from the Baptist Church. This is the
home of Reverend Daniel and Mrs. Sally Throckmnorton, formerly
of Cedar Springs, FL. Sally's green thumb is evident by the array
of ferns and tropical plants on the expansive front porch. Both the
Methodist and Baptist homes have won the Torreya Garden Club
'Yard of the Month' under the current owners. .The former home of
Pick and Alber'ta Hollinger was bequeathed to the church at her death
in the late 1990's. The Manse Committee has done a masterful job of
updating this craftsman style home built circa 1915 by Pick's uncle,
Pick Higgins. It is one of the architectural gems of Blountstown.
The fourth home is the home of Gary Shuler, 21748 SR 71 North,
Built of a dark red brick it is one of the town's most outstanding new
residences. Gary's two-story home has a beautiful swimming pool
with a latticed brick wall surround. This regal home is often used for
large, community-wide gatherings.
The fifth home on the Chrjstmas Tour is the home of Glenn and
Susan Warren on the Chipola River, 17533 Chipola Heights Road
(just off CR 275). In keeping with a family tradition, Glenn's mother
Margaret's home was on the 2007 Tour. Built in the style ofa Spanish
hacienda, it has a spectacular view of the Chipola River, designated
one of the Nation's 'Wild Rivers' for it's unspoiled natural beauty. The
home is artfully decorated with antiques and collectibles, reflecting
Susan's knowing eye for the unique. The guesthouse will also be
open during the tour. She is the former owner of the Country Cottage
in Blotintstown.
The sixth and final home on the tour is Longleaf, the Calhoun
County residence of Robert and Kay Trammell which is located oil
Charles Pippin Road in the Ocheessee area off of State Road 69 North,
Robert Lee Norton built this dignified Victorian lady in 1904 in the
Queen Anne style. The Trammells moved this home from Cypress
in Jackson County and had it moved to some Atkins Family land in
1997. This home is one of the stateliest homes in the area.
Each home will be decked out in holiday finery. Tickets are $10
per person. Children under 10 accompanied by a paying adult are
free. You can purchase your tickets -the night of the event on the
steps of the Blountstown United Methodist Church. Please join us
for this third annual holiday tradition; to meet, eat and greet! See

Floridakbtlood supply

gets boost with merger
TALLAHASSEE Two of Florida's leading
blood centers, Florida Blood Services (FBS) and
Southeastern Community Blood Center (SCBC)
are merging to better serve donors, patients
and healthcare facilities. The merger will result
in an even stronger regional commitment in
providing blood and blood components to the
local communities while capitalizing on the latest
technologies.
"SCBC identified the need for the blood
center to grow substantially in order to remain
competitive and control costss" said Stan Barnes,
chairinan of the SCBC Board of Directors.
"Forming a partnership now ensures continued
presence in the North Florida and South Georgia
region as well as significant growth potential for
the future."
With healthcare costs on the rise, hospitals,
medical and blood centers are under increased
pressure to control costs.
"The growth of the market coupled with more
complex testing and regulations requires all
blood banks to operate on a more sophisticated
level with very thin margins," said Roy Bertke,
chairman of the FBS Board of Directors. "By
expanding our base and forming strategic
partnerships with other regional blood banks like
S'CBC', we ensure that we continue to meet the
niee~ds of our customers."
Headquar-tered in St. Petersburg, Fla., FBS
provides blood and blood components to patients
at 38 hospitals and 40 ambulatory health facilities
in Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco and Pinellas
counties. FBS is an official donor and apheresis
center for the National Marrow Donor Program
and is one of only six blood center hubs in the
U. S. designated to provide to the military in times
of need.
"This really is a win-win situation," said Don
~ 'Doddriilge, CEO of Florida Blood Services.
"FBS and SCBC have a long-standing working
relationship. By joining forces, FBS partners with
a stable, well-run community blood center of
similar philosophy, values and work ethic, while
creating a larger base that will allow us to better
meet the needs of all involved communities."
Jeanne Dariotis, CEO of SCBC, could not
agree more.
"It. is important to remember this merger is
about more than just business," said Dariotis.
"Our first priority is always to the people that we
serve in North Florida and South Georgia. Our
donors have been an integral part of our success
to this point and will continue to be important as
we move forward. Through this merger we will
be better able to serve local needs for generations
to come."

For one half, Class 1A Lib-
erty County stayed stride-for-
stride with Class 3A Arnold, but
then the wheels came off and
the rains came dowit to stop the
game in the third quarter with
the Marlins ahead 28-7.
Visiting Arnold scored on
their first possession of the game.
The Marlins used speedy rusher
Jeremy Heliter to move the ball
down field and then scored a
touchdown just a few plays into
the first quarter. Liberty respond-
ed with a drive of their own that
ended when the Bulldogs failed
to convert on fourth and short
deep in Marlin territory.
The Marlins fumbled away
the ball on their next possession
and Liberty took advantage of
the miscue and field position.
LCHS quarterback Terrance Ev-
aris scoredl on a 53 yLaiid run that
tied the game at seven.
The score remained tied as
the Bulldog defense pounded
Arnold's rushing attack and kept
the Marlin quarterback on the


run. The Bulldogs looked pre-
pared to end the first half tied
with the Marlins as they forced
the Marlins backwards on Ar-
nold's last drive of the first half.
The Marlins had a couple of
offside calls as well as holding
penalties on two strong rushes
of the quarterback to force the
visitors into a first and forty
situation. The Marlins opened
a big hole on the right side of
the line on their next play and
Hester flashed through and out-


raced the defenders 67 yards for
a touchdown and a 14-7 lead at
the half.
In the third quarter, Liberty
received the kickoff, but on their
first' drive of the second half Ev-
ans was stripped of the football
and the pigskin was returned
for a Marlin touchdown. Arnold
added one more score before
weather forced the cancellation
of the~game.
The Bulldogs end their season
at 3-7 and out ofthe state playoffs.

The Blountstown Middle
School Lady Tigers suffered
their` first loss on Monday,
Nov. 10 at the hands of the
Tolar Bulldogs.
It was a tough defensive
battle between what are
probably the two best teams in
the conference. The Bulldogs
were able to pull out a win by
applyi~ng fill1 court pressure
and getting the Tigers out of
their rhythm offensively. The
Bulldogs were ahead after the
first quarter 8-4.
However, through some
good defense the Tigers were
able to erase the lead and
tie the game up at 10-10 by
halftime. At the end of the
third quarter the score was 14-
12 arid we still felt we were in
good shape to win the gamle,
but in the fourth quarter we
made a few costly mistakes
and our starting point guard
fouled out. This allowed
the Bulldogs to pull away
for 18-12 win. We played
great defense aind anytime we
hold someone to 18 points we
should be able to win the ball
game. Tolar deserves a lot
of credit though, they played
great defense also and just
played a smart ball game as a
whole. They were very well


coached. While the loss was
disappointing, hopefully we
will use it as a learning tool
and it help us get better as a
team. The Tigers were led
in scoring by Alexis Speights
and Jayla Brigham both with
4. Demeca Martin and Jackie
Dudley also chipped in 2.
The Lady Tigers did however
come away with a win in the
fifth quarter by a score of 12-
6. They were led in scoring
by Stephanie Abbott with 6.
Stephanie is has been doing
a great job and continues to
improve every game. Jackie
Dudley had 4 and Adrienne
Santillus contributed 2.
On the following Thursday
we hosted the Franklin County
Seahawks. The Lady- Tigers
were able to come awa with
a win by a score of 26-7.
You wouldn't believe it by
looking at the final score, but
at halftime the score was 4-2
favoring the Seahawks. This
was -frustrating because we
know what we are capable of
offensively as a team and 2
points a half is unacceptable,
but we talked at halftime about
what were doing wrong and the
girls responded tremendously
by scoring 24 second half
points. We just need to be
more patient and get back

to donate to their hero Ty Edwards and ihi~s family.

setting up and the reception for
the Veterans. Each person in

for their help and support. It


was an honor to pay tribute to-
our Veterans.

New Calhoun County School Superintendent


Tuesday night
Calhoun County's newly-elected School
Superintendent Tommy McClellan was
sworn into office Tuesday along with
~t~I-i )two new school board members, Danny
Ryals (far left) and Kenneth Speights
(center). At Tuesday's meeting, board
~ B member Kelly King was elected as
'chairman and Tim Smith was elected
vice-chairman. David House was
re-appointed as attorney. Regular
meetings were set to be on the second
Tuesday of each month at 5 p.m. It was
announced that Greg Jones, assistant
superintendent, will be retiring on Dec.
31. The board agreed to advertise
to replace that position, however th~e
decision to replace him will depend on

challenges. The schools are
entering some of the hardest
times she has seen in her 29
years of service to this dis-
trict.
She attended herfirst Super-
intendent's meeting last week
and heard very bleak news
from her colleagues around
the state. Schools around
the state have been forced to
release hundreds of teachers~
and drop many successful
programs due to the budget
cuts being dealt to education.
Superintendent Summers said
she is thankful for the sound
financial management our dis-
trict has had in the past which
has enabled us to keep exist-
ing personnel and maintain
current programs. With the
newest cuts being announced
last week, she and the rest of
the -board are looking hai-d at
strategies for reducing expen-
ditures to continue to iniain-
tain our schools as they are
currently operating.
The School Board is not
the only part of the school
system with new leadership.
Ms. Harrilet Brady was ap-
proved as the new Principal of
Liberty County High School
where she will replace Ms.
Gay Lewis, who has moved
to the Director of Curriculum
and Instruction position va-
cated by Dr. Sue Summers.
Ms. Brady has served Liberty
County schools for over 12
years. She began her teach-
ing career in Liberty Coun-
ty in 1986, taught college
courses for the University of
West Florida, and worked as
a Reading Consultant for the
Panhandle Area Educational
Consortium for three years
before returning to work in
Liberty County.


Liberty County School
Board has a new Superinten-
dent and a new School Board
Member as of Tuesday night.
During an emotional meet-
ing last week, the district said
goodbye to retiring Supern-
tendent David Summers who
had served the students, fac-
ulty and families of Liberty
County Schools for 31 years
with his final four spent as Su-
perintendent. Mr. Summers
began his career as a teacher
at Bristol Elementary School
in 1977. During his .years
with the district he also taught
at LCH.S and was the princi-
pal of Hosford Elementary
and Middle School, Liberty
County High School, Bristol
Elementary and W.R.' Tolar
as well as lead teacher at the
Bristol Youth Academy.
During his farewell com-
ments Mr. Summers said he
was proud of the things this
board had accomplished.
"We tackled some things that
Others have feared. Some real
dangerous and risky moves
were "made. Not careless
though. We searched them
out and made good calls. We
were also able to establish eq-
uitable salaries for all school
board employees by conduct-
ing a comparison study with
other Panhandle districts and
ensuring our folks were paid
among the middle of the sal-
Sary range. While we may not
have agreed on everything, we
found a way to unite for the
students of Liberty County,"
he said, adding: "It's been a
good time."
Outgoing School Board
Member James .Flowers said
he was thankful for the oppor-
tunity he had been given to
serve on the board and work

for the students and schools of
our county. He further stated
that he was sorry that his pro-
motion with the Florida De-
partment of Corrections had
impacted his service to the
students, faculty and families
of the district in the endl of his
eight year term. "If I'm do-
ing it, I want to do it the best I
can do it and I don't feel like
I've done that in the last: cou-
ple of years. I appreciate and
love everybody in this room."
Mr. Flowers served for two


consecutive terms and gave
his best wishes along with an
offer of support to his succes-
sor Logan E. Kever.
School Board Chairman
Kyle Peddie said he wanted to
praise the board because "we
all worked together to make
that Hosford School project
work. We could have easily
been at odds with each other
and that thing would have
never happened. One of our
greatest accomplishments is
getting that done."

to live with
prepare for holiday meals, favorite
movies you watch, decorating
you usually do together--can
remind you of your loved one and
bring sadness and longing.~ You
may feel out of sorts and alone
while everyone else seems to be
celebrating. Bereavement can
be a roller coaster of emotions at


s


i


people you want to be with,
when you can. It may be helpful
to remember the loved one in a
special way, rather than trying
to forget your times tighter. For
instance, you can light a candle,
prepare a favorite dish, or create
a special memorial decoration or
ornament. This not only honors
the person you have lost but can
"bring a positive focus to our
grief". However, iftraditions are
too painful, find other ways to
celebrate. For example, instead
of decorating a tree indoors, put
ouit seed ornaments for birds. If it
is too difficult to be at home, take
a trip. Although theses changes
won't do away with your grief,
they may lessen the pain.
Communi-cate~ with others
about what you want and need to
do. Talk with family members
about how to mark the holidays.
Let others know that you might
not be able to dowhat you usually
do, and change your plans if you
need to. Tell others if you need a


shoulder to cry on or time alone.
Accept your feelings. Cry if you
need to and le~t others know that
they can express their feelings
and memories too. Reach out to
others and get the support you
need. Sharing your grief may
ease the pain. Many people
find a support groups helpful, or
talk to someone they can trust.
Appreciate your family members
who are there for you and need
you, too. Take care of yourself.
Eat healthy food, get the rest you
need, and exercise. All these
health promotion strategies will
not only help you feel better
but will also help you cope
with stress. Help someone else.
Volunteer to help people in need.
Ask someone who is alone to join
you for a meal or activity.
If you have lost a love one, the
holidays may be difficult, perhaps
the most painful period of your
grieving. However, these days
and nights will pass, and you can
survive.

The investigation came about ~as the
result of tips from concerned residents.
Subsequently, FWC investigators setup a
fictitious company dubbed "One Tropical
Way," and then advertised and bought
illegally obtained products from the
group that was heavily engaged in selling
contraband marine life to other sources.
FWC investigators have evidence the
ring had operated for at least five years


and believe
that retail
value for
the illegal
pro du cts
they sold was in the millions of dollars.
"Not surprisingly, some of these
individuals have been~arrested before
on the same charges, but this time they
face enhanced penalties for repeat
offenses," said Capt. Andy Krause, FWC
investigations supervisor.
Though licensed as commercial bait
fishermen, the group caught and sold bait
shrimp for human consumption.~ Shrimp
caught, handled, transported or stored for
use as bait does not meet the more rigorous
health and.product safety standards
required for food shrimp. The ring also
hlavs sdted h e sshn p'rmea area
Additionally the fLishermen illegally
sold bycatch species such as peppermint
shrimp, protected sharks, shark fins, bay
scallops and sea horses. Bay scallops

other activities the ring engagBd in
require a Saltwater Products License
with additional restricted species and
marine-life endorsements. Without the
proper license and endorsements, bycatch
species caught in nets must be returned
immediately to the water, alive.
Ring members hid illegally taken
animals in secret compartments in the
event their vessels were inspected by
officers. Though a significant portion of
the hidden bycatch died becatise it was
stored without aeration, the group still
generated huge profits from the sale of the
remaining live organisms.
The FWC conservatively estimates
that during its six-month investigation,
the ring captured and sold more than
100,000 peppermint shrimp. A tiny but
popular species with saltwater aquarium
enthusiasts, the miniature crustaceans
were wor-th an estimated $600,000 on the
retail market.
A list of individuals and charges
follows. At this point, all charges are first-


A six-month undercover investigation by
the Florida Fish and~ Wildlife. Conservation
Commission (FWC) has led to the arrest of
eight members of a Tampa Bay area crime
ring, engaged in a multi-million-dollar
scheme to illegally exploit and export the
state's marine resources.
On Thursday, Nov. 13, FWC
investigators served arrest warrants on five
Hernando County men and one woman
andtwo Pasco County men on24 counts of
violating state law. Other individuals may
be charged as investigators delve deeper
into the workings of the organization.
Some of the illegally taken marine life was
exported to New York and Amsterdam.

the center leaves grow over and
form loose head.
Romaine lettuces are tall,
upright and thick-leaved.
Their thick midribs and ~sweet,
juicy texture have made them
especially prized for salads.
The foliage can be red or green,
smooth or ruffled.
Lettuce transplants of various
types generally are available
in area nurseries. You will
find a inuch larger selection of
cultivars available from seeds.
,Plant
~~lettuce seedsit el

Prepared beds
.' that have been
amended by
digging in a
2-inch layer
of organic

compost, and
an all-purpose
granular
'"fertilizer.
Lettuce seeds
_il~ need light to
h --. germinate,
so they are
simply pressed or lightly raked
into the soil surface. Water
frequently until they germinate,
and once they come up thin
the plants to the appropriate
spacing. The average spacing
is about 10 inches between
plants.
For best quality, lettuce
must be encouraged to grow
rapidly. This is accomplished
by keeping the plants well
watered and fertilized. Water
thoroughly during dry weather,
and keep the plants mulched to
prevent drought stress. Stress
from drought, heat or low
fertility encourages the .lettuce
to become bitter.
Even though lettuce is best-
grown here in the winter, hard
fr-eezes can damage the foliage.
If temperatures in the mid-20s
or lower are predicted, throw a
layer of pine straw or sheets of
fabric over the plants to prevent
frost burn.
Looseleaf lettuce is best
harvested by cropping.
Butterhead can be harvested by
CTOpping or cutting the entire
plant, and romaine is best if the
entire plant is harvested when
ready. All lettuce should be
harvested by early to mid-May,
since high temperatures will
cause the lettuce to become
increasingly bitter and to bolt
(send up a flower stalk).
Its beauty, ease of culture and
delicious foliage make lettuce
an excellent choice for any
gardener.

that is easyto grow and delicious.
Some lettuce varieties are also

in containers on a balcony, try
including some type of lettuce
in your fall plantings.
According to Dan Gill, LSU
