Woman arrested

on abuse charge

after grandson, 2,

suffers fractured

skull, other injuries
by Teresa Eubanks,
SJournal Editor
A Calhoun County
grandmother has
Been charged with
aggravated child
abuse after doctors
determined her two-
year-old grandson
suffered a skull
fracture and other
injuries while in
her care, according
to a report from the
Renee Calhoun County
Luddington Sheriff's Office.
Ar r e st e d
Thursday was Renee
Luddington, 44, of 20072 Hardin Lane in the Mossy
Pond Community.
The child's 19-year-old mother became worried
Nov. 26 when she could not reach Luddington by
phone around midday and asked a relative next door
to go check on her son and daughter who had been
left in the care of their grandmother.
When the relative arrived at the Luddington home,
she walked in to find the little boy standing naked and
bleeding, with his face severely bruised and his eyes
swollen shut. The \wonan grabbed the child, ran home
and called 911.
The boy was flown by emergency helicopter to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where he was admitted
to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
Luddington told investigators that her grandson
had her porch around 10 a.m. but indicated
that she did not feel he required medical attention.
When asked if her two dogs a red nose pit bull
and a chow could have bitten the boy, she said she
didn't know.
The investigator's report indicated that Luddington
showed no emotion aboutthe child's injuries. When
she was first called out to her fence to speak with an
investigator, she "seemed almost incoherent" and
appeared "to be under the influence of something,"
according to an investigator's report.
Neighbors cautioned deputies before they entered
the fenced property Luddington shares with a disabled
adult son that she has two aggressive dogs. The son,
who is mute, gave written answers to questions from
deputies and gave no indication he knew what had
happened. When asked if he saw how the child was
injured, he placed his hands together and laid his head
on them to indicate that he had been asleep. The two
children had spent the previous night there.
A doctor determined that most of the wounds
had not been caused by an animal, as emergency
workers first thought. Instead, the little boy's injuries
were due to blunt force trauma caused by multiple
blows. As bruises continued to develop on the little
boy, the medical staff said they were caused by

A Calhoun County man
was arrested after a talk with
deputies led to him admitting
that he had stolen several
items, including an ATV, a
trailer, a trolling motor and
various fishing equipment.
Peter Keet, 35, of 12607
SW County Road 275, was
taken into custody Nov. 25 and
charged with grand theft.
Accordingtothe arrestreport,
Investigator Michael Bryan of
the Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office and Major Rodney
Smith of the Blountstown
Police Department went to
see Keet at his home last week
to question him about some
recent thefts.

When the officers
approached the residence, they
noticed a trolling motor in plain
view under Keet's carport that
matched the description of one
stolen several weeks earlier.
When asked about the
motor, Keets said he purchased
it from someone who lived
on State Road 71 but could
not give a name. A photo of
the motor was taken to the
victim who had reported the
theft and he identified it as his
After pressing Keet about
where he had gotten the motor,
he stated he had taken it from
a boat at a camp several weeks
earlier, along with some other

Marijuana arrest made in Liberty Co.
A Liberty County man was charged with sale of a controlled
substance (marijuana) and possession of a controlled substance
(marijuana) after an informant arranged to make a $40 buy from
him last week, according to a report from the Liberty County
Sheriff's Department.
Cpl. Todd Wheetley monitored a phone call in which an
informant made arrangements with Michael Randall Shuler to
buy a bag of marijuana.
During the conversation, Shuler stated he was leaving his
house and would meet the caller at the end of Odell Owens Road.
The two met and the informant handed over $40 in marked bills
during the Nov. 24 exchange.
After recovering the marijuana from the informant, Wheetley
conducted a traffic stop on Shuler and took him into custody.
The $40 in marked bills was recovered from the driver's seat.

quantity of blood was located in
the floor of the bedroom." Blood
was also found on the side of the
desk and the east wall.
Several broken pieces from
a lamp were found scattered on
opposite ends of the room; some
held blood.
The base of the lamp was found
outside, next to the porch. On it
was a blood stain and a sample of
hair that appeared human.
In a nearby bur pile, deputies
found a plastic bag with blood-
stained papers similar to those
found in the bedroom. A load
of laundry was left soaking in a
washing machine.
The report noted that by putting
the bloodied papers on a burn
pile, Luddington was attempting
to conceal a crime and she was
arrested. She is being held on
$50,000 bond at the Liberty
County Jail, which houses female
inmates for Calhoun County.

Wednesday, Luddington said they
were taking a nap and she should
call back later. There was no
mention of any injury to the little
boy. The phone went unanswered
when she tried to call again.
The mother told deputies
that she had since talked with
the relative who found her
injured child and was told that
Luddington's adult son answered
the door, appeared nervous
and upset and had apparently
been trying to communicate
that something was wrong. The
injured boy's sister then went to
the woman and hugged her; at
that point, the woman noticed the
bloodied two-year-old standing
by the pantry without any clothing
The little boy's sister later told
their mother she had found him in

of sharing fruit
Monica L. Brinkley,
UF/IFAS, Liberty County Extension
Wilhoit and Iris Eubanks, life long
residents of Liberty County, have a
desire to see Liberty County bearing
fruit from seeds of the past. While
talking with Mr. Wilhoit, he shared
that 50 years or more ago Mr. Hobert
Owens, a native of Liberty County
gave grapefruit and tangerine seeds
to Mr. Bertus Eubanks, Mr. Wilhoit's
father. Mr. Bertus later gave seed to
Mr. Silas Eubanks and then Mr. Silas
shared with his brother Mr. Wilhoit.
Mr. Wilhout also shared that Mrs.
Bernice Duggar, Mrs. Iris' mother,
planted orange seeds over 30 years
ago that have produced much beautiful
and delicious fruit. Now they would
like to continue the tradition of seed
sharing with their fellow Liberty
County residents in hopes that the
county will have an abundance of
these fruit bearing trees for everyone

Indian way with a visit from the Strutkos

boys of Troop 206 received
a visit from Mr. and Mrs.
Jack Strutko, members of
the Apalachicola River Creek
Indian Tribal Organization .
(A.R.C.I.T.O). It was truly
mesmerizing to hear the
stories of the old ways and
how American Indians lived
and cared for the Earth.
With lots of Indian artifacts to
touch and feel, the boys were
transported into a time when
men followed a different set
of laws. Between warrior
breast plates, feather fans
and dream catchers there 1:

Tri-State OffRoad Park in Clarksville
held a benefit bog-in Saturday night to
help Christian Hupp and his family with
his medical expenses at Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital.
Christian Hupp is the three-year-old
son of David and Amanda (Bodiford)
Hupp ofAltha.
. A few weeks ago, he was playing
outside his grandparent's home around
mid-afternoon when he slipped into
the horse pen. Christian was kicked in
the chest and abdomen area. He was
rescued by his six-year-old brother
and rushed to the hospital where he
urider went surgery to repair a tear
in his small intestine. He developed
pneumonia and is facing a long and
difficult recovery.
The bog-in was a huge success,

bringing in $2,666 to go toward his
hospital bill. The Hupp family came
out for a few hours to take in the
excitement and fun of watching the
trucks tear across the pit in hopes of
making it to the other side. Despite
the rain, there was a large turnout for
the races.
*Winners in the 4 & 6 cylinder
category are, for 1st place, Jack Pierce;
2nd place, Justin Flowers; 3rd place
Terry White and 4th place was O.B.
In the 3, 5 & down category the
winners were: 1st place, Dwight
Samples; 2nd place, Chad Flowers; 3rd
place Andree Canington and 4th place
Caption Chaos.
*In the 39 & above category the
winners were: 1st place, Plug; 2nd
place, Cliff Edenfield; 3rd place.

Mike's Welding and 4th place, Duke
Each race night they sell chance
tickets to raise money for the Toys for
Tots program. At half time the tickets
are drawn and the winner gets half of
the pot and the remaining money is
set aside to give to the Sheriff's Toys
for Tots program. Saturday night's
winner of the drawing was Jacob
Breedon. The Off Road Park has
almost met their goal of $1,000 to
donate to the Toys for Tots and hope
to reach that goal after the next bog-in,
scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 6.

in and future events contact Ray

Levi Brannan, age 10, killed his first
buck on Nov. 30 while hunting with
his dad, Greg, on private property in
Greensboro. Levi's buck was a 150
pound 8 point with a 14 inch spread.
Levi had the opportunity to kill a second
buck, but decided to leave it for his
younger brother, Cole, to have a chance
at. He is the son of Greg and Laurie
Brandon of Bristol and Stan and Teresa
Brannan of Crawfordville.

Megan Hiers, 12, and her dad were
hunting on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27 in
Greensboro when she bagged her first
buck. After being in the tree stand for
about an hour she saw a four point walk
in, then a five point walked in. She asked
her dad if she could shoot, he said yes.
She pulled the trigger, looked at her dad
with wide open eyes and asked, "did I get
him?" Dad replied, "Yes." She was so
excited that she called home to share the
news with her mom, sister and brother.
Megan is the daughter of Jed and Donna
Hires of Bristol.

Season's Greetings from Calhoun-Liberty Hospital

New equipment has arrived and more is

on the way; new Prayer Room completed

From the board, staff,
and physicians of Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital, Merry
Christmas, Happy Holidays
and Happy New Year!
We feel we've been very
blessed in 2008 and also want
to thank the community for
responding to our many efforts
to improve the hospital. We're
proud of our progress but
we'll continue to work hard
to further earn your trust,
confidence and respect. We
hope that will lead to your
continued and increased use
of our services.
This past year brought
many positive changes to the
hospital. We've improved the
appearance in many ways.
We've also worked hard on.
improving the courtesy and
compassion of the care we
provide. I feel we've also
improved significantly in this
We've gotten a lot of new
equipment and have even
more on the way. By the end
of the year we hope to have.
our new beds in and lots of
new diagnostic equipment.
Radiology and pharmacy both
will get some state-of-the art
machines to help us serve you
better. Even our heating and
air conditioning equipment
will be updated.
We're upgrading our "CAT"
scanner to do even more tests
with this key machine. We
currently perform over 200
studies per month with this
unit. The new machine will do
so faster and with much more
We're creating a new
registration area in our front
lobby. It should also be finished
by the end of the year and
improve our flow of patients



by Ron Gilliard,

in this busy area. It will also
improve the privacy for our
patients. We're doing this work
with the wonderful donations
we've recently received. Such
donations are allowing us to
accomplish many renovations'
as well as purchase even more
new equipment.
Our "Adopt-a-Room"
program continues to decorate
and upgrade our inpatient
rooms and other areas. For
example,-we now have a
beautiful new Prayer Room
thanks to the Chamber of
Commerce Board. The first
two inpatient rooms "adopted"
are really nice! I'll be glad to
show them to anyone interested
in adopting!
We'll begin a new clinic soon
to perform echocardiograms in
the hospital. This will be yet
another key diagnostic test
that you can do here and not
have to drive out of town. This
will save you time and gas! A
friend of mine recently spent
all afternoon going to Panama
City for this same test. This
will be done with our fancy
new ultrasound machine that
should be in by January.
We're also expanding our
Emergency Room to make it
more efficient as well. We
average almost 750 patients
per month in this busy area!
We've been very pleased with
the ER group of physicians
that joined us a year ago.
They've been a key part of

our total turnaround. They are
very good and compassionate
doctors. And we're receiving
lots of compliments for the
care being provided in the
ER by our staff. This was not
always the case so I'm very
proud of this hard working
But I'm very proud of ALL
the hospital staff. We recently
received an amazing "grade"
from the annuallicensure
survey from the state. They
found no "write-ups" and
this was due directly to the
hard: work, dedication, and
professionalism of our staff.
I've been through many
inspections but never one that
gave absolutely no findings!
So, we're proud-of our
progress but again, will
continue to work hard to make
things even better. If you
would like an update on the
many things we have going
on, and even more to come,
give me a call at 674-5411, ext
206. I'llbe happy to give youa
personal tour, discuss all of the
above or anything else about
the hospital.
Maybe you would like to
know more about how you can
make a donation to the hospital
or adopt an area. Some folks
are now donating in memory of
deceased friends or relatives.
We of course, notify the family
of this kind act as well as
provide information for tax
purposes since we're a "not-
for-profit" organization. This
is a great time ofyear to honor
loved ones this way also. It
can make a unique Christmas
Again, from all of us at
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital,
have a blessed holiday season
and a Happy New Year!

...should be on every parents'

Wish List this holiday season
Last holiday season's hysteria over the safety of some of the
toys made overseas lodged a big lump of coal in. many kids'
stockings. Not only did concerns over lead paint and other
quality control issues result in a sleigh full of product recalls,
but it also prompted Congress to take action. Anew law requires
that manufacturers put in place more stringent testing procedures
and reduce the levels of toxic chemicals in their toys.
The new regulations should go a long way toward giving
parents confidence in the toys they are buying for their kids.
But the Grinchly news this holiday is that many of these stricter
rules don't go fully into effect until 2009. That means it still
falls to Moms and Dads to stay vigilant about the safety of the
toys they are putting under the tree or purchasing for Hanukkah
this year.
The good news is that, according to toy safety experts, there
are resources available to parents -both from the retailer or the
manufacturer to help parents determine just how safe the toys
on their kids' wish lists are.
"Parents should not hesitate to inquire about the levels of lead
in toys, about the results of product safety tests conducted by a
third party, or about whether the retaileritself randomly tests the
toys," said Linda DeRose Droubay, the Director of Safety and
Quality Compliance at Virginia-based The Children's Group,
Inc., publisher of popular children's catalogs HearthSong and
Magic Cabin. "This kind of information should be available
on a retailers or manufacturer's Web site.
Manufacturers and retailers, now including well known
toy brands and big-box retailers, have joined longtime safety
advocates in instituting a range of safeguards this year.

State agencies partner to

reduce crashes involving

large trucks and buses
TALLAHASSEE Colonel John Czemis, Director of the Florida
Highway Patrol, announces the start ofa statewide traffic enforcement
operation aimed to reduce unsafe driving acts that contribute to
crashes. The primary focus of the operation will be driving acts
thatocause crashes that involve large trucks and school buses.
The operation is a joint effort with the Florida Department of
Transportation, Motor Carrier Compliance Office. It is part of a
series of long-term enforcement efforts that focus on top priority
traffic safety issues to help reduce deaths and injuries on Florida's
roadways. "During this operation, FHP troopers and Motor Carrier
Compliance officers will be watching for unsafe drivers, especially
those who contribute to collisions between. passenger vehicles
and large trucks or school buses," said Colonel Czernis. "We
certainly recognize that the vast majority of commercial motor
vehicle operators drive in a responsible and law abiding manner.
However, because of vehicle size, weight and the type of cargo
hauled by commercial vehicles, the potential for causing significant
damage to other vehicles or property is very real. Therefore, it is
imperative that commercial truck drivers obey state and federal laws
and regulations meant to protect their safe passage and that of the
motoring public."
Florida traffic data from the Department of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles show that last year commercial motor vehicles were
involved in more than 18,000 crashes that resulted in 365 fatalities.
Drivers of smaller vehicles, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians
are all at a considerable disadvantage when involved in collisions
with large trucks. For the operation, all available FHP personnel
will be on the road tracking traffic law violators using laser, radar,
video cameras, motorcycles, and unmarked patrol vehicles. FHP
pilots will be on patrol spotting violators from the air and directing
troopers on the ground to pull them over to initiate appropriate
enforcement action.
The Florida Highway Patrol would like to remind all motorists
to Move Over when approaching patrol cars, emergency vehicles or
tow trucks parked on the roadside displaying flashing lights. Please
give us room to work and help us stay safeiwhile we do our jobs.
The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles offers safety
tips on sharing the road, school bus safety and much more on the

that he will not seek

another senate term




It's very wise to advertise the Calhoun-

Liberty Journal.

U.S. Senator Mel Martinez (R-
FL) announced that he will not
be seeking a second term in
2010 as one of Florida's U.S.
Senator Martinez said: "If
there is one thing I have learned
over the years, it is that life can
have many wonderful detours
from where you think you're go-
ing. These result from chance,
adversity, and a call to duty.
"As a teenager growing up
in Cuba, I saw comfort and the
rule of law replaced by tyranny
and communist oppression. I
saw people beaten for practic-
ing their faith. Remember those
who spoke out vanishing never
to be seen again. My parents,
with the help of the Catholic
Church, sent me here, to the
United States a place to be safe
until we could be reunited.*
.'"It was here that I learned
-the greatness of this country -
and the genuine goodness of
the American people. I lived
with two foster families good,
decent, loving people who an-
swered a call from the pulpit one
Sunday-to take in a boy they did:
not know, from a c6untir they
had never seen, who spoke a lan-
guage they did not understand.
"I thank God for the Young '
and Berkane er families. The\
helped me understand what it
means to be Amerncan \what it
is to aspire to live the American
dream and the profound virtue
of giving back to your commu-
'"After four years I was re-
united with my family. I went
to college and law school. I met
the woman who would become
my best friend, my partner and
counsel. Kitty and I settled in
Orlando my only true home af-
ter I left Cuba. We started a fam-
ily, sent our two older children,
Lauren and John, to Bishop
Moore High School the same
school I attended and where
our younger son. Andrew, started
as a freshman this year. Orlando
is Where I built a law practice,
and where I was encouraged to
become an active member of

"After years of involvement
in numerous community organi-
zations and boards and with en-
couragement from many friends,
I threw my hat into. the political
ring, running for Orange County
"What an honor it would be,"
I thought, "to serve as Mayor of
-the community that took me in."
It was a race where I started in
last place. Pundits openly won-
dered whether a Hispanic could
be elected Orange County May-
or at a time when only 5% of the
registered voters in our county
were Hispanic.
"So in November of 1998 I

began my term believing that af-
ter four or maybe eight years
at most I would return to the
private sector. Neither my fam-
ily nor I had planned or hoped
for anything different.
"You al know that one thing
led to another. From Mayor, I
went to serve in the President's
Cabinet. From there, I made the
run for U.S. Senate. Again, I
started in last place, ran against
an impressivefield of candidates
who had the resources and state-
wide recognition that should
have ended my run early on.
Those who volunteered with me
knew the odds were against us;
no other office holder had been
elected on their first statewide
"But we persevered. We
proved the American Dream is
alive and well, especially when
an immigrant arriving here with
nothing can one day be elected
to serve in the United States
"The Senate is the only feder-
al office carrying a six-yearterm,
so a decision about whether to
run for re-election is one that nmy
family\ and I have carefully con-
sidered over the past year. It %%as
a question that came to mind as I
wrote my book causing me to
-relect on the path I'\e chosen.
and to thunk about. \ith love and
gratitude. those ~b o've traveled
vith me.
"The inescapable truth, for
me, is that the call to public
service is strong, but the call
to home, family and lifelong
friends is even stronger.
"So today, with deep love
for this country and with sin-
cere gratitude to the people who
placed their trust in me, I an-
nounce that I will not run for
reelection to .the United States
"Some might try to charac-
terize this decision in terms of
political affairs, Some will say
a re-election campaign would
have been too difficult. But I've
faced much tougher odds in po-
litical campaigns and in life. My
decision was not based on re-
election prospects, but on what
I want to do with the next eight
years of my life.
"So with two years left in my
term, I make this announcement
today in order to give the many
qualified individuals who might
choose to try to succeed me an
opportunity to organize and
gather support..
"I look forward to serving out
these next two years. There are
big problems facing Florida and
the nation, and I will continue
to do what I think is in the best
interests of the people whom I

FWC hears impassioned

pleas about turtle harvest

People from around Florida
with an interest in turtles came
together in Tampa to provide
data both anecdotal and
scientific to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) to help
guide development of a harvest
management strategy by June
"This is exactly how we
like to do things, bring people
together and find solutions,"
said Nick Wiley, assistant
executive director of the FWC.
"We appreciate very much that
so many of you want to be
engaged in this process." Bill
Turner, FWC turtle scientist,
said there was one big question
to answer: "Should the FWC
allow the harvest of freshwater
"We're working overtime
to get this done by June,"
Turner said. "We can't collect
much of the information
ourselves. We depend on our
stakeholders to help us gather
the information." At times
the exchange was spirited
between turtle scientists and
conservationists who would
like to see an outright ban
on harvesting freshwater
turtles and the commercial
fishermen whose income partly
depends on a seasonal harvest
of freshwater turtles. "The
fishermen are upset'because
it's their livelihood, and they
believe softshell turtles are
plentiful and can sustain a
harvest," Turner said. "Others
want to end the harvest because
they believe it could cause
turtle populations to decline."
William Shockley, a third-
generation fisherman from
Okeechobee, takes his son out
on weekends to catch turtles
and earn some money. He told
the audience he can sell turtles
for $1 to $1.50 per pound.
"When they weigh between
three and five pounds, we
throw them back," Shockley
said. "It doesn't do us any good
to take the next generation, so
we throw back the smaller
ones." Turtle scientist Peter
Meylan expressed his concern
about the levels of harvest and
monitoring, saying the harvest
should be banned.
"There isn't any money in
the state to do the research
needed to develop a minimum
sustainable number for
harvest," Meylan said. "So
in absence of funds, the best
thing to do for turtles and the
ecosystem is not to allow them

to be harvested commercially."
Wiley said the FWC encourages
turtle scientists, fishermen and
other experts on freshwater
turtle harvest to share their
insight as the agency moves
rapidly toward developing a
management strategy. "This
information will be one source
as we develop the best possible
strategy for freshwater turtles
in Florida," Wiley said.
The FWC passed a rule in
Sept. that limits the harvest of
wild Florida freshwaterturtles
to five per day per person. Each
fisherman with a commercial
license is allowed to harvest
an additional fifteen Florida
softshell turtles per day, for a
total of twenty. The FWC will
monitor and enforce the current
rule to ensure the turtles are
being adequately protected.
FWC's rule-making requires
specific steps to provide proper
public due process. The FWC
will continue to seek input
over the next few months.
Staff will present the proposed
management strategy at the
Commission's April meeting
in Tallahassee. Commissioners
will vote on the final plan
and regulations at their June
meeting in Crystal River.
Fortunately, the FWC has
some time to work through
this process, because the best
months (Sept. and Oct.) for
harvesting freshwater turtles
have passed in Florida. During
cooler weather, turtles move at.
a much slower pace and eat less
food, making them difficult to
harvest. In addition, May 1
begins the closed season for
harvest of the Florida softshell
turtle, which goes until July 31.
With this input from the
meeting, FWC staffwill begin
organizing the material and
drafting a management plan.
"We're trying to understand
so we can develop a long-
term meaningful management
strategy for the species,"
Turner said. "We're moving
very quickly, and we will have
a plan in place by June."


Calhoun Co. 2008 Pee Wee football

from Rodney Smith
The Calhoun County Pee
Wee football team had a very
impressive season this year,
finishing the season undefeated
and winning the Super Bowl
by defeating Wewa 44-0. This
team set a Pee Wee football J.;
record by only allowing
one touchdown to be scored
against them all season long.
Ironically, this touchdown was
scored by Chattahoochee on .:'
the opening kickoff that was
meant to be a on-side kick. t
The undefeated Pee Wee .
team was coached by Nathan
Goodman, who has coached youth football for the
past 29 years, Rodney Smith, Matt Vincient, Titus
Overholt, Jr. and former FSU player Garry Futch..
The offense was led by several talented players
including Jessie Hall who scored 17 touchdowns
and two 2-point conversions. Hall gained 1,116 all-
purpose yards on 60 touches.
Quarterback Tanner Peacock scored five
touchdowns and four 2-point conversions. Peacock
gained 229 all-purpose yards on 22 touches.
Fullback Porter Smith scored three touchdowns
and six 2-point conversions. Smith gained 194 all-
purpose yards on 24 touches.
Slot man Dillon Lee scored four touchdowns and
one 2-point conversion. Lee gained 461 all-purpose
yards on 21 touches.
Slot man Malac Johnson scored one touchdown
and two 2-point conversions. Johnson gained 106
all-purpose yards on 14 touches.
Slot man Shon Peterson scored three touchdowns.
Peterson gained 170 all purpose yards on four
Slot man Thomas Howell scored on a 2-point
conversion. Howell gained 97 all-purpose yards on
ten touches.
Tight end Tripp Taylor scored one touchdown and
one 2-point conversion. Taylor had three catches
-for 95 yards.
Dewayne Laramore, scored one touchdown.

~ -. o
The defense was tough as nails and gave up less
than 100 yards all season.
Linebackers Porter Smith and Jessie Hall led the
team with 37 tackles each. Smith had three fumble
recoveries and Hall had two interceptions and one
fumble recovery.
Dewayne Laramore had 25 tackles. Dillon Lee
had 22 tackles and one interception. Tripp Taylor
had 18 tackles. Brett Bozeman had 18 tackles. Shon
Peterson had 18 tackles, three interceptions and
one fumble recovery. Malac Johnson had twelve
tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery.
Tristen Griffin had 20 tackles. Tanner Peacock had
15 tackles and one interception. Kyle Darnell had 18
tackles. Tommy Futch, Bryson Wood and Thomas
Howell had six tackles each. Tyler Owens had eight
tackles and a fumble recovery. Austin Britt had six
tackles. Justin Terry had five tackles.
-The players were treated to a tour of Doak
Campbell Stadium on Nov. 25. They got to check
out the Seminoles locker room, weight room, training
room and equipment room. The tour was hosted by
Blountstown's own Nick Myers. Nick is a student
trainer working with the Seminoles. The players
also got autographs from Christian Ponder, Cory
Magnum, Dakota Watson and Everett Brown.
With all the talent on the 2008 Pee Wee team, I am
sure a few of these players will wind up playing for
the Seminoles or the other guys further east of us.

BMS girls team improve their record to 8-1

The Blountstown Middle School Girls basketball team
improved their record to 8-1. On Nov. 18, the Lady Tigers
traveled to Wewa to face the Gators. They added another
win to their record by a score of 34-12. We started out a
little sluggish, but overall we were pleased with the way
we played.
The Lady Tigers were led in scoring by Alexis Speights
with twelve points. She was followed by Demeca Martin
with ten points. Demeca also converted all three of her
free throw attempts. Jayla Brigham contributed with
eight points and Adrienne Santillus provided a spark off
the bench with four points.

Dec. 6, for the SEC Champi-
onship. Air time on 102.7 and
S Y-1000 is at 2: 30p.m. CT.

On Nov. 20, the Lady Tigers again traveled to Gulf
County to face the Port St. Joe Sharks. St. Joe is a very
athletic team that is quick and plays good defense. They
had improved tremendously since the first time we played
them. The first time we faced them we beat them 31-11.
This time we were able to escape with a 17-9 win. This
was a very intense ballgame. They played great halfcourt
defense the whole ballgame. They even tried to put a
halfcourt press on us which we hadn't seen against any
other team, but our girls did a great job of spreading
the floor and passing through it. Alexis Speights led all
scorers with nine points and Demeca Martin contributed
The fifth quarter was also very intense,
but ended up in an 8-8 tie after a last second
shot by Port St. Joe. It was very frustrating
4K because in the fifth quarter game, there is
no overtime. We had four players that all
veek.. contributed two.points apiece.. These were
Kayla Prowant, Jackie Dudley, Adrienne
Santillus and Jordan Griffin.
The Lady Tigers hosted Tolar Tuesday,
Dec. 2. They also will host and participate
in the conference playoffs on Dec. 9 and
Dec. 11.

Altha Wildcat JV

boys basketball
by Jim Mclntosh, contributing writer
There were many things on our list that we were
thankful for on Thanksgiving Day.
GRACEVILLE, NOV. 24 -- The Altha Wildcats
junior varsity boys basketball team added another item
to their first year coach's Thanksgiving Day list. In his
coaching debut, Altha alumnus Nathan Castaneda was
given a thrilling 28-26 win over the Graceville Tigers.
In the season opener for both teams, the Wildcats
and the Tigers began the third quarter tied 13-13. They
traded leads throughout the period until Altha's point
guard, Will Rogers, banked a running jump shot high
off the glass to give the Wildcats a 21-20 lead as time
Rogers tacked on five more points in the final period
in the form of a field goal and a 3-pointer. Jacob
Warner added a field goal to give Altha their 28-26
lead. Graceville had a chance to win as they put up
a 3-pointer in the final seconds but it bounced off the
back iron and fell harmlessly to the floor as the final
buzzer sounded.
SGraceville edged the Wildcats in the field goal
department shooting 50% (12 of 24) to the Altha's 47%
(9 of 19). The Tigers made 67% (2 of 3) of their free
throws while the Wildcats canned 50% (4 of 8). Altha
made up the difference with their 3-point shooting,
canning 25% (2 of 8) while the Tigers failed to deliver
on their four attempts.
Leading the Wildcats in scoring was Will Rogers,
with ten points (including a 3-pointer) along with team
leading five steals. Also, Rogers, had two assists and
a rebound. Jacob Warner put up seven points, cleared
five rebounds, picked a Tiger's pocket, and was credited
with an assist. Tyler Hamilton bagged six points along
with 3 rebounds and a steal. Tyler McCoy played string
music with his first 3-pointer of the season and he pulled
down two rebounds. Brett Floyd chipped in a field goal
and he pulled down two rebounds.
Altha's varsity boys Thanksgiving holiday season
didn't begin as well as Graceville handed them a 58-
24 loss. Pressured all night by the taller Tigers, the
Wildcats committed 24 turnovers in the game and
allowed Graceville to start fast out of the gate. They led
13-5 at the end of the first quarter. At the intermission
it was 35-9 in favor of the Tigers and they held a
commanding 52-19 at the end of the third stanza.
Graceville connected on 55% (21 of 38) of their
field goals while Altha only made 29% (8 of 28). The
Tigers sank 36% (5 of 14) of their 3-pointers while
the Wildcats shot 14% (1 of 7). At the free throw line,
Graceville made their only attempt while Altha hit 36%
(5 of 13).
The Wildcats leading scorer was Jake Edenfield
who. ended the night with eight points (including a
3-pointer) and a team-leading four steals along with four
rebounds. Caleb Willis, drained six points pulled down
five rebounds, and he had an assist Both Ethan Ellis
and Steven Vassallo, netted three points apiece. Ellis
had three rebounds, an assist, and a steal. Vassallo was
credited with two steals and a rebound.. Ethan Byler
and Ben Willis, each chalked up a field goal. Byler
cleared five rebounds and he had an assist. Ben came
away with three steals and an assist.

Don't let holiday hazards ruin your celebration

The holiday season is here
and along with it comes food,
fun, festivities, and decorations.
These busy moments coupled
with excited children, rushed
parents, a change in routine,
and entertaining holiday

Since food is an important
part ofthe holiday celebrations,
the staff of the Florida/USVI
Poison Information Center -
Jacksonville wants you to be
very aware of the potential
for bacterial food poisoning
that may pose a threat during
this time.
Bacterial food poisoning
is a mild illness that usually
develops within a few hours
but may also be delayed up
to a few days after eating the
contaminated food.
Symptoms include fever,
headache, diarrhea, stomach
pain and vomiting, and usually
do not require any special
treatment. These symptoms
generally will go away in 12
to 24 hours.
The bacteria is normally
associated with meat, fish, or
dairy products that have been
allowed to thaw improperly,
that have come in contact
with dirty work utensils or
work areas, or with unwashed
Turkey is a traditional
favorite food during the
holiday season, but if not
prepared properly, can be a
haven for bacteria. Simple

precautions to take
include: f
*Do not thaw turkey I
at room temperature;
this allows for bacterial
*Thaw the frozen
turkey in the'refrigerator
unwrapped allowing
one day of thawing
for every four to five I
pounds of turkey. I
*Do not partially cook
turkey one day and continue
roasting the next day.
*Refrigerate separately
turkey, gravy, stuffing, and
other leftovers after the meal;
room temperature is not
Use leftover turkey,
stuffingand gravy within three
days of cooking.
Also during this season, be
mindful of common holiday
poisoning hazards that could
be dangerous to your children.

Use materials from your own backyard for holiday decorating

by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
S Santa Rosa County ._
Many of us decorate our
homes for the holidays and
a great source for natural
decorative material is your
own backyard.
Greenery gathered from
your own garden will be far
fresher and more aromatic than
any that you can buy. You may
also have a variety of unusual
greenery that would be difficult
to find for purchase.
The best greenery for indoor
decorations comes from cedar,
ivy, pine and holly. Pines, firs
and cedars are especially good
to use for indoor decoration
since they dry out slowly and
hold their needles best at warm
interior temperatures. They
may last for several weeks if

properly treated and
cared for.
Other greenery ':
to consider includes
arborvitae, ligustrum,
viburnum, Leyland
cypress, nandina
and Japanese cedar
When gathering
live greenery from
your shrubs and
trees, remember
that you are actually i'
pruning the plants. ,
Consider carefully
which branches to
cut and which ones
to leave. Distribute
the cuts evenly around the
plant in order to preserve its
natural form.

Use clean, sharp pruners to
cut branches and immediately
put the cut ends into water until
ready to use. Crushing the ends
of woody stems allows them
to take in more water. And
soaking the cuttings in water
overnight allows the greenery
to absorb the maximum
amount of water. Commercial
sprays are available that can.
be used to provide some fire

Never place fresh
greenery near heat
sources, such as space
heaters, heater vents or

greenery away from
candles and fireplaces.
If you use lights near
your green arrangements,
make sure that they stay

they are rated for exterior

Checkyour decorations
every couple of days for
freshness. If the greenery

replace or remove the
dry portions. Make sure.

and many others you can find
in your yard.
The leafless branches of
deciduous trees are excellent
to use in dried arrangements.
Try using branches of oak,
sweet gum, crape myrtle and
winged elm.
Be aware, however, that
some popular plants used in
holiday decorating can present
poisoning hazards for small
children or pets. Poisonous
berries are found on holly
plants, yews, mistletoe, ivy
plants, Jerusalem cherry, and
crown of thorns. The pearly
white berries of mistletoe are
particularly toxic. Keep all
these plants out of the reach of
children and curious pets.
When decorating this
holiday season, be creative,.
and use what you have at hand.
The items you cai use are as
common as the holly bushes in
your front yard, or as simple
as wild grasses, bare branches
or clusters of berries. These
materials are.versatile, so
use your imagination--create
something beautiful out of
your homegrown materials.

CARBON MONOXIDE: The silent, cold weather killer

Each year, nearly 5,000
people in the United States are
treated in hospital emergency
rooms for carbon monoxide
(CO) poisoning. This number
is, however, believed to be an
underestimate of those poisoned
because many people exhibiting
the symptoms of CO poisoning
mistake these symptoms for the
flu or are misdiagnosed.
Why is CO the silent cold
weather killer?
CO is a colorless, odorless,
toxic gas. It is produced by
the incomplete combustion of
solid, liquid, or gaseous fuels.
Appliances fueled with gas, oil,
kerosene, or wood may produce
CO. If such appliances are not
installed, maintained, and used
properly, CO may accumulate
to dangerous and even fatal
levels in cars, homes, or poorly
ventilated areas.
CO poisoning can kill without
warning as your family sleeps.
Because CO gas has no odor-
warning properties even at toxic
or life.threatening levels, it is
considered a silent killer. And,
since so many deaths occur as
the result of defective or poorly
operated home heating devices,
CO has been termed the "silent,
cold weather killer."
Where does CO come from?
CO is produced by products
that burn fuels. Therefore, any
fuel-burning appliance in your
home is a potential CO source.
Electrical heaters and electric
water heaters, toasters, etc., do not
produce CO because they don't
involve combustion of fuels.
Under normal circumstances,
CO levels in the typical home or
workplace should not be above
levels found outdoors.
When appliances are kept in
good working condition and are
properly vented, they produce
little CO. Improper installation,
operation, or poorly vented
appliances can produce elevated
or even fatal CO concentrations
in your home. Likewise, using
kerosene heaters or charcoal
grills indoors or running a car
in a garage can cause levels
high enough to result in CO
Common sources of CO
include the following:
*Room heaters (not radiant
or electric)
*Charcoal grills
*Cooking ranges (not
*Water heaters (not electric)
*Automobiles run in closed
*Portable generators
*Wood-burning stoves
Who is at risk of CO
Any person or animal in.
a space shared with a device
capable of generating CO
should be considered at risk of
CO poisoning. CO exposures
especially affect unborn babies,

infants, and people with anemia
or a history of heart disease.
Breathing low levels of the
chemical can cause fatigue and
increase chest pain in people
with chronic heart disease.
Although not always
experienced, the initial symptoms
of CO poisoning are similar to
the flu, but without the fever.
They include:

*Irregular Breathing
It is critical to note that death
from CO poisoning can occur
quickly or when sleeping, with
some or all of these symptoms
never being experienced, in
which case, the overexposed
victim becomes unconscious and
never regains consciousness.

Dangerous levels of CO can
be prevented by proper appliance
installation, maintenance, and
use. Periodic inspections of
potentially CO-producing
equipment, and the use of CO
alarms, are also key to avoiding
a CO fatality.
