Liberty County school board approves pay cuts Tuesaay

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
The Liberty County School Board approved a
series of pay cuts for themselves as well as the school
superintendent and administrators at Tuesday's regular
meeting in Bristol.
They all know bigger cuts are to come but
administrators are stepping up to take the
first hit as they wait to find out what funding
decisions the Florida Legislature will make 50
in March. "We're expecting at least a five includes
percent reduction in revenue from the tax
Legislature," according to School District
Finance Director Stephanie Hofheinz.
The administrative cuts and elimination
of supplements paid to teachers for extra
duties will save $30,845 over a six month I
period, while the overall impact of items
approved Tuesday was over $200,000.
The five school board members are
taking a three.percent pay cut. Each will
receive $350 less for the second half of the
school year.
The superintendent will go home with
$1,350 less in that same period after taking
a three percent pay cut as well.
The board agreed to cut administrative
salaries by two percent- a savings of$2,900
for the four district administrators while the
funds taken from school administrators will
total $3,320.
A 16-point list of supplement payments
have been eliminated. This means school
clubs and programs will either be eliminated
or run by teachers on a voluntary basis
who once received anywhere from $250
to $1,050 to come early or stay late for
meetings, ball games and special projects.
One teacher who agrees with the cutbacks
is Liberty County High School Spanish
instructor Sharon Austin, who for the past
decade has produced the school annual
"If we don't cut the fat out where we
can now, we're going to have a problem
later," she said. "The economy's bad and
something's got to give."
She said she'll miss the money but points
out that the supplements were a fairly recent
addition, having started around four years
ago. Cl
"We were trying to not have to lay
anyone off or do an across-the-board salary
decrease," said School Superintendent Sue J
Summers about dropping the supplements.

Deputies rushed to the Frink Community Thursday
night after getting a 911 call from a 74-year-old woman
who said her son was going to "kill everyone in the
family," according to a report from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office.
Major Roman Wood and Captain Ken Futch of the
Calhoun County Sheriff's Office went to McClellan Farm
Road after the 10 p.m. call to look for 48-year-old Roger
Dale McClellan, who they were told became angered
after finding his brother eating supper nearby at their
mother's home.
McClellan, who was intoxicated and said to be in
possession of a high-powered rifle, was banging on his
mother's door. Once inside, she prepared a plate for
McClellan, who continued to be verbally abusive and
stopped her from leaving the room. She said he began

Bristol business

owner charged

with selling beer to

underage customer
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Bristol store owner was charged with permitting
the sale of alcohol to a person under the age of 21
after an underage buyer purchased a six-pack of beer
while working as a confidential informant for the
Liberty County Sheriff's Office.
Approximately 10 minutes after the informant
walked out of the store with the beer Friday
afternoon, officers entered Los Hermanos Barragan
on Main Street in Bristol and arrested 38-year-old
El Fego Barragan-Rivera.
Cpl. Todd Wheetley said the sheriff's office had
received several complaints about teenagers being
able to buy beer from the store before setting up a
purchase of their own.
The owner was given a notice to appear for the
misdemeanor and faces a fine. He was told that the
sheriff's office would periodically send in other
underage buyers to ensure IDs were checked.

1 st arrest under

new Liberty Co.

sheriff for theft

of son's shotgun

A stolen rifle led to the first arrest under the
new Liberty County Sheriff Donnie Conyers.
The victim? His son.
Grant Conyers reported that he was sitting
in a tree stand near Ramsey.Road in Bristol
around 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 6 when two white
males walked into the area.
The men told him they were lost and said
they didn't know how to get out of the woods.
Conyers told them to follow the road back
When Conyers later returned to his truck
he discovered a Remington 879 pump shotgun
was missing.
The sheriff and Cpl. Todd Wheetley went
to the scene of the theft and found footprints
leading out of the area to Central Avenue and
then turning west towards the Apalachicola
River. A resident at Riverview Trailer Park
told them she saw two white males go by
earlier and identified them as living in one of
the trailers at the park.
While questioning a resident at one of the
trailers, Daniel John Chasteen walked up and
admitted the theft. "I did it. I stole the gun,"
he told the sheriff and Wheetley.
Conyers identified Chasteen and a 17-year-
old who had been with him in the woods.
During questioning, Chasteen admitted
to opening the door of Conyer's truck and
removing the shotgun.
Chasteen was charged with burglary of a
conveyance, burglary while armed and theft
of a firearm.
The gun was valued at $800.

in a drawer.
An empty nitrous oxide cylinder was left near
the back door after being moved from a hallway.
A similar cylinder was taken out of Exam Room
#2 after the hose connected to it was severed by
tree limb cutters that were left behind in an exam
The cutters were collected as evidence and
officers collected the empty cylinder, a metal cigar
box from Dr. Cobb's desk that appeared to have
been handled and a paper note that was on the
cylinder to be tested for fingerprints.
Anyone with information about the burglary
is urged to contact the Blountstown Police
Department at 674-5987.

Man charged

with child abuse

after dispute with

victim's mother
A Bristol man has been charged with one
count of child abuse after he allegedly put his
hands around the neck of a 12-year-old girl
after arguing with her mother.
Servando Ortuno, 24, was arrested on a
bench warrant Jan. 11.
According to a probable cause affidavit,
Ortuno was at a home on Gobbler Court
when he approached a woman and grabbed
her by the throat. When she yelled for help,
he yanked her by the shirt, pulling her hard
until she broke free.
The woman said he threatened both her and
her mother before leaving in a car.
The woman then said she ran outside when
she heard her 12-year-old daughter screaming
for her. The witness said when she warned
Ortuno to "get his hands off my daughter"
and said she was calling the sheriff's office,
he replied that both she and her daughter
would be going to jail.
Ortuno then left in a vehicle.
When a deputy arrived, he reported that the
victim had red marks on her neck "as though
'she had been grabbed by the throat."

later, he said Harmon returned
and resumed beating on his front

When deputies arrived,
Harmon had fled. His girlfriend
said he left after hearing a shotgun
being fired from nearby.

Five cents f
One of my granddaughters is a
high school student. She took a cup OX
of yogurt for lunch but failed to take C OR
a spoon. She attempted to use a lunch-
room spoon provided by the school, Jerry Cox is a rn
but she was told that it would cost five officerandwriterwi
cents for the spoon. I know that the background in d
local school district has to reduce the foreign policy issue
budget by a couple of million dollars, \pkaloosa County.
but a nickel for a plastic spoon... ?
The spoon incident is symptomatic

of America's financial troubles. In describing financial
trouble, I don't mean that one or two segments of the en-
tire U.S. economy are experiencing a downturn. It is not
uncommon for highly leveraged companies like the air-
- lines to experience a downturn in economic activity.
If Florida has a bad hurricane season or a winter freeze
_" f then the Florida citrus industry most likely will have fi-
niancial troubles for a period of time.
The current downturn in the U.S. economy is far more-
serious than having theairlines in trouble or the price of
citrus products on the rise. The current problems with
S" America's economy are not just about Wall Street or the
Automobile manufactures. The problems are about the ba-
-- sic fundamentals of the economy. I can't emphasize the
term fundamentals enough. The basic fundamentals of
what was once America's sound, rock-solid financial sys-
tern are skewed to dangerous proportions.
*The basic American free trade, consumption-based
w economy is undergoing a major revision. In my view,
when the pieces stop falling, the American economy will
be downsized. Our place at the top of the international
pecking order will be challenged by China and India. Our
Ability to compete for a reasonable share of the interna-
S__ tional economy, and our capacity for continued robust
economic growth will be challenged.
For most people, their understanding and perception of
SW -the economy extends to their paycheck, if they have one,
and their ability to pay the rent and buy food. That's OK.
In America, there is no reason for all of the adults in this
country to be experts in economic theory. However, there
a b is all the reason in the world for national leaders and poli-
Sticians to have some understanding of economic theory,
but most don't.
Not many people like this comment, but the Republican
S and Democratic models of government are not sufficient to
S - ^ managetheAmerican economyin theinternational markets.
.. The Republican trickle-down economics and smaller
government, whatever that is, is utterly stupid. The Demo-

or a spoon
cratic view that government can do every-
k"IS thing is almost as dumb. But the American
iNER people can't skate through this financial
mess scot-free. They share a major por-
etired military tion of the responsibility for the fact that
than extensive America's economy is in the hopper.
domestic and Why? Because the American people
es. He lives in want it all and they want it all for free,
/ It is almost useless at this point to say it
for the millionth time, but I'll say it again,
"There is no free lunch."
People demand cheap goods and services. In a demo-
cratic country with a free market, corporate America heard
the cry for cheap stuff and did what they had to do to pro-
vide cheap consumer goods. Of the three factors of produc-
tion, land, capital and labor, corporate America reduced
labor cost which is the major factor affecting price. If any-
one is still perplexed as to why their job went overseas,
they shouldn't be. People wanted cheap goods. People got
cheap goods at the expense of America's workforce.
Economically speaking, there is nothing unusual about
what is happening and continues to happen to America's
basic economy. A historical look at the development of the
world's commerce reflects that the markets seek out cheap
labor, raw products and willing buyers. This economic
phenomenon is as predictable as the sun rising in the east.
It's that troublesome supply and demand thing.
A basic problem is America's balance of trade. The
problem is that there is no balance because America im-
ports approximately $60 billion more per month than it
export. Remember the comment about cheap goods? Well,
a big chunk of that $60 billion is cheap stuff demanded by
the American people.
The trade imbalance adds about $700 billion to the na-
tional debt each year. Add in the cost of the Iraq War, in-
terest on the national debt, the cost of health care and you
can see why the national debt has doubled during the Bush
The government has promised a lot of money to the
American people in the form of Social Security, Medicare
and Medicaid payments. The government doesn't have the
promised funds in escrow. It's just a promise. The social
programs that many of us benefit from are not sustainable.
We either have to pay for them in the form of more taxes
or give up the programs.
I recommend a CNN program called I.O.U.S.A-Amer-
ica's Money Crisis. This program explains in simple terms
why America is in a serious, and I emphasize the term
serious, financial crisis.

Manning Trio makes CD of song 'It Is Well With My Soul'

Hosford siblings surprise parents with

unique holiday gift by recording CD

from Michelle
Manning .
After the thanks
had been said, hugs
exchanged, and
tears ofjoy flowed,
my husband,
James and I
realized there still
was not enough
gratitude for the
very special gift
that we received
from our children
this Christmas.
We are truly
blessed with
three wonderful
children -
Mitchell Manning,
Aleah Manning
Roddenberry and
Selah Cheyanne
Manning and
want to let them
know. The gift we

Shown above, left to right, are the children of James R.
and Michele S. Manning of Hosford. Mitchell Manning
of Southport is a senior computer programmer who.
is married to Kellee Jones and father of two children,
Ember, 9 and seven-year-old Sydney. Aleah Manning
Roddenberry of Bristol is a contractual services specialist
who is married to Ryan Roddenberry and mother of
two- children, Shelby, 6 and Rylan, 2. Selah Cheyanne
Manning of Hosford is a TCC nursing student and part-
time photographer.

received from them is one that we
can share with many others a
CD with a song featuring each
of the children singing one verse
and all three singing the chorus
in unison.
In the Holy Bible you are
instructed to go into your "closet
and pray." Our children literally
went into the closet to sing as they
took turns recording the song "It
Is Well With My Soul" in the
bedroom closet of Joe and Angie
Schulte's home in Sunny Hills.
The Schulte's are Mitchell's
father and mother-in-law.
The "Manning, Trio" took
turns singing each verse in order
of their position as siblings.
Mitchell sings the first verse,
Aleah the second and Selah the
third. Mitchell is the eldest,
Aleah the second and third in
line is Selah, better known as "the
The recording .of this CD
occurred at separate times and
Mitchell skillfully compiled
them to create the masterpiece,
from the beginning where you
hear the ocean waves and the
seagulls to the last notes on the
piano. All three shared with
us the. painstaking time that
this huge undertaking involved.
While in the closet, Aleah and
Selah both had plenty of time
to check out all of Mitchell and
his wife Kellee's wardrobe and
at one point, Aleah came out
sporting around Mitchell's house
slippers! Selah told us that she
sang her part 52 times until she
was satisfied with the outcome!
We do enjoy the final product,
but sure do wish we could have
been a fly on the wall and watched
this from beginning to end. This
was kept "top secret." Even our
Aleah did not tell us. We all
know that it is so hard for her to
keep secrets! The grandchildren
did not let the proverbial "cat out
of the bag." We understand that
they were threatened within an

inch of their life not to tell. There
was no breach in the secrecy,
not a bit of the news leaked out
before the appointed time. The
only comments we heard were
from Selah which was a planned
diversion of getting photos from
her dad.
Another very special aspect
to this CD is during the time my
mother, Janet Weaver Smith,
passed, the Lord brought this
song "It is Well with My Soul" to
minister sweet peace and comfort
to me.
My children did not know that
song had such special meaning for

me. The song
was selected
due to the fact
that it would be
one that they
could sing and
both of their
parents would
enjoy! Isn't-
that just like
the Lord? He
knows the very
inner thoughts
of your heart
and confirms
it so when you
least expect it.
As I tried to
tell Mitchell,
Aleah and
Selah about the
deep meaning
of the song,
I "had great
difficulty in
completing the

sentence due to the overwhelming
expression of love from the
Lord and my children. My tears
flowed and that let them know
without a doubt they had most
definitely given the "best gift any.

We have a grandchild due to
arrive any day now. Any thoughts
on old-fashioned gifts? -S. T.,
Owen, Wis.
Answer: What about name
boxes? By Pennsylvania Dutch
custom, a new baby is presented
with a name box -- a small, fancy,
wooden box with the child's
name painted on top. Stenciled
designs or initials are sometimes
added for a decorative appeal.
You might also paint the child's
birth date on the bottom of the
box. Inside, you, can place some
small trinkets, toys, or notes from
family and friends who greet-the
newborn's arrival. You could also
add family photos or a family
tree printed in calligraphy. Many
hobby shops or craft stores offer
unfinished Shaker-style boxes in
oval shapes that could be used in
the same way.
Another old custom is for



grandparents to write a letter
welcoming the newborn and
expressing the thoughts and news
of the day. Current events, the
latest songs or book titles, and
popular fashions or trends can be
recorded. Over time, the letter can
become a mini history of sorts.
I received a Yucatan hammock
for Christmas, but it looks too
flimsy to bear much weight. Is it-
safe? -D. M., Barnegat, N.J.
Answer: If your hammock is
brand-new and shows no obvious
structural defects, chances are

it is safe and sound. Compared
to the thicker rope hammocks
with the wooden stretcher bars
that we're more familiar with
in New England, the Yucatin
hammocks do appear delicate,
but you'll notice that the fine
cotton threads are tightly woven
in an intricate lacework that
is amazingly strong. History
reports that early Mayans wove
hammocks from the bark of the
hamacktree. Hammocks were also
used in the Bahamas, according
to Christopher Columbus, and

sailors aboard ships commonly
used hammocks.
To test your hammock for
strength, try lying crosswise
on the hammock and see if the
material sags in the middle at all.
It should support you in an almost
flat position, with your legs and
your head at about even distance
from the ground. Next, lie in your
hammock in the conventional
way, but with your head very
near to one end. You should be in
an almost upright position, with
yodr legs more or less parallel to

Simmon Baker, a slave
owner, bought acreage in
Calhoun County. This land
was located in Hughs Creek.
One of his slaves, Delilah, |
had four children for Simmon.
They were Oscar, Anna, Mary

At the end of slavery,
Delilah married Green Horton. .
They had three children: Bell, -

their children in Hughs Creek I
area. At their death, they were

Oscar was in his early teens
when slavery ended. Even
though he could not read or write, he became
known as a wise man. He was a farmer and a
traveling minister as well as a trustee for the one
room school of Hughs Creek.
He was married twice. Julia, the daughter
of Miles and Mariah Brown, was his first wife.
Before her death they had eight children: Isaac,
Frank, Jack, James, Myles Alexander, Albert,
Jessie (a girl) and Molly.
Oscar soon married Chaffer, the daughter
of Carrie and Sandy Hand. She raised her
stepchildren and their ten children. They were
Robert, Lawrence, George, Oscar, Edward, Julia
(Collins), Annie (Pierce), Della (Davis), Elnora
(Blanding) and Rena (Eggleson). Chaffer taught
all 18 children and area children how to read and
write. Oscar and Chaffer died in 1936, leaving
behind a rich legacy.

George and Flossie married in 1921. George
built their home on land given to them as well
as homes throughout Calhoun County. He
worked at the local sawmill, built boats, and
became a minister. Flossie was a homemaker
and seamstress for their 12 children. They
were Isaac (who became a Ranger in the U. S.
Army and was killed in Korea); Chaffer (who
died in infancy); Mae Ella Grant (a retired para-
professional who lives in Port St. Joe); Syrenees
(a retired educator who lives in Miami); Lois
Miller, Flossie Gautier, and Carlton (retired
educators who live in Lypn Haven); and Dorothy
Mauzy (a Job Corps administrator who lives
in Jacksonville). As one can see, George and
Flossie instilled in their children the importance
of education.

They were reunited again and must be proud of

the ground. If these two positions
are workable, you should be able
to twist and turn and experiment
with various postures in your
hammock. Because the hammocks
have no stretcher bar to keep them
open, they take a little getting
used to, but you're unlikely to
fall out of them because they tend
to wrap themselves around you
quite snugly.
In our experience, the only
real danger with the Yucatin
hammocks is that if they are
exposed to strong sunlight for
several years, the fibers may
yield to the elements of the
weather and gradually lose their
strength. In this case, you may.
have rips and tears in the weave
and should replace the hammock.
Because Yucatan hammocks are
so lightweight, however, it is easy
to bring them indoors if you will
not be using them for extended
periods of time. This will prolong
their natural longevity.
What is the best way to rid
a pantry of moths? -P..0., St.
Martinville, La.
Answer: Food moths can be
pretty tough to get rid of once
they've moved into your home.
You'll need to dump all pantry
staples containing grains and
nuts -- including pasta, popcorn,
crackers, flour, raisins, nuts, and
breakfast cereals -- since the
moths may have already laid eggs
in them. Buy new staples and
put them directly in the freezer
for two days, which will kill all
stages of any new moths that may
be in them. Then store the foods
in glass jars. Any of the remaining
moths will head for the hills when
they discover nothing to eat in
your pantry.

Open house for new Calhoun

County Jail Annex set Jan. 20

from Calhoun County Sheriff David Tatum
The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office will host
an open house of the new Jail Annex on Tuesday,
Jan. 20 at 3 p.m. to provide an opportunity for the
public to visit the new facility before it is occupied
by inmates. We are very proud of this addition
given that it is a product of our labors, an example
of how government
should work and
generally a safer,
cleaner environment
for the employees of
the jail and for those
The new facility will
house 60 inmates and
resolve most of our
overcrowding issues
in the short term.
With the down turn in
the economy, it just
isn't a good time for
the Board of County
Commissioners to
step off into. a new
jail project that would
require future revenues
to be bonded to pay debt
service and to operate
the facility. Frankly,
the county just cannot
afford to build the new
jail that we need right now.
The project began with the sale of the vacated
old library building on Pear Street to the City of
Blountstown for a new Police Department.
We took that money and built an addition
onto the existing building that nearly tripled our
available space for housing. This was a cost saving

measure for the City of Blountstown and a very
timely and beneficial move by the County.
A metal building was erected by Big. River
Construction to provide the shell within which we
built the jail. The interior concrete block walls with
metal ceilings create a secure maintainable facility.
Once the metal building was completed, we used
our county jail inmate
workforce to perform
almost every craft
necessary to complete

Sheriff Frank McKeithen

This scrounging of used
materials from buildings

also charged

with resisting

A traffic stop ended with
a charge of resisting a law
enforcement officer without
violence last week in Liberty
County. _
According to an incident report,
Cpl. Todd Wheetley stopped a
Toyota pickup on County Road
12, across from Tolar School in
Bristol around 5:43 p.m. on Jan.
7 due to suspicious activity.
After making the stop,
Wheetley learned that one of
the passengers Christopher
Lee,Hug, 26, of Bristol was
wanted on a warrant for a parole
violation. .
When Wheetley placed his
hand on Hug to handcuff him,
Hug pulled from his grasp and
Hug ran east, parallel to Spring
Branch Road before going into the
woods. When a tracking dog led
Wheetley to a fenceline behind a
home on Mill Branch Road, Hug
stepped out and yelled, "Don't let
the dog go. I'm right here."
He was then taken into custody
on the original charge of violation
of probation along with the
additional charge of resisting.

to Altha's 50% (7 of 14). From
the charity stripe the Bucks sank
50% (8 of 16) to the Wildcats'
40% (2 of 5). Bozeman made.
both of their 3-point attempts
while Altha shot only 27% (6
of 22).
Leading the Wildcats
offensively was Will Rogers

19 points that included 4 from
beyond the arc. Tyler Hamilton

team-tying 6 rebounds and he had
a steal. Kenny Johnson, Tyler

Great Florida Birding Trail

signs go up in the panhandle
The 2,000-mile Great Florida Birding Trail reaches another
milestone with the installation of the Panhandle section road signs this
month. Signs will mark each of the designated sites along the trail.
The Great Florida Birding Trail is a conservation program initiated
by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
in response to the rapidly expanding sport of bird watching. More
than 485 exceptional sites throughout Florida have been chosen
based on their quality and compiled into trail guides representing
four geographic regions.
The sign installations should be completed by early next year
and will help bird watchers find the designated sites throughout the
Panhandle.' Gateway sites at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge,
near Tallahassee, and Big Lagoon State Park, in Pensacola, provide
extensive trail-related resources, with loaner optics available on site.
They also act as hubs of regional birding information. Field guides
in both English and Spanish also are provided to enable visitors
to identify which birds they are viewing. Additional materials for
beginning bird watchers also are available at each gateway site.
A sign-dedication event, complete with birding hikes, will be held
at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge on Jan. 17 at 1 p.m.

May 1, 1921 January 10, 2009
She was born May, 1, 1921 in a
part of Liberty County, Florida which .
is now known as an area deep with-
in the Apalachicola National Forest.
Her father, Ruben Olin Shuler, was
the eldest child of the Liberty County __
pioneer cattleman, whom she affec-
tionately called Granddaddy "Bub" Shuler. Ann grew
up with many aunts, uncles, and cousins from the
Shuler and Sykes families. Her five siblings were O.J.
Shuler, now of Escambia County, Ruby Gypsy Tribble,
deceased, Grettza Jones, a Duval County resident,
Joseph Shuler of Escambia County and Elnora Louise
Shuler, deceased.
She was married to James Taylor Stoutamire, a
Liberty County resident of the Blue Creek Commu-
nity in 1937. They were blessed with three surviving
sons. They are Kenneth Taylor Stoutamire of Mari-
anna, James Michael Stoutamire and wife Edith of the
Blue Creek Community and Jon Charles Stoutamire
and wife Marlene of Apollo Beach, Florida. Other sur-
vivors include six grandchildren and five great-grand-
Surviving grandchildren are Kathryn Jordan and
husband Scott of Marianna, Kenneth and wife Allison
Stoutamire of Malone, lan and wife Timi Stoutamire of
Tampa, James and wife Melissa Stoutamire of Valrico; -
Stuart and wife Lisa Stoutamire of Bradenton, and Amy
Stoutamire of Liberty County. Surviving great-grand-
children are Hampton Jordan of Marianna, Daniel and
Madelyn Soutamire of Malone, Brady Stoutamire of
Bradenton and Emily Stoutamire of Valrico, Florida.
Her vision was affected by a childhood illness. How-
ever, this did not prevent her accomplishing a life-long
dream. She graduated from Florida State University,
Tallahassee, in 1967 with an English degree. WORDS
were important to her life, as was education. In the
early 1960s, she was involved with the founding and
establishing of Gulf Coast Community College. She
was an avid reader. This meant if magazines, cata-
logs, product content labels, letter, or whatever, they
were read. Often a critique, a judgement or evalua-
tion of merit and faults of the material, was presented.
She is known to have read the King James Bible from
Genesis to The Revelation.
She was an able equestrian. She learned to ride as
a young child. As the eldest family child, this skill was
useful in helping her father the farmer.
She loved the waters of Bay County, Florida. She
came to live nearby the lakes, bays, bayous and the
Gulf of Mexico as a young woman. These
ventures to tell of these waters. James Michael came
seriously close to being born, literally, on Massalina -
Bayou. Jon Charles, as a small child alone, without
wearing a life-jacket, innocently floated into the middle- -
of St. Andrew's Bay.
Ann Shuler Stoutamire was a member of the First
United Methodist Church of Panama City, Florida, hav-
ing become a member with her sons, Ken, Mike and
Jon, on Sunday, May 24,1953. She wished to always
be first, to go ahead and to carry the banner high.
Services are planned for Friday, January 16, 2009,
10:00 a.m., at the First United Methodist Church Cha-
pel, Panama City, Florida.

Although they are
treasured for their
delicious hearts, they
are more valued as an
ornamental palm tree for
landscapes, adding the
tropical look to many
homes in Florida.
The cabbage palm is
-one of the most popular
and most practical'palms
for home landscapes, due
to its relatively small size,
when compared to other
palms, and ease of care. It
usually grows to about 40
feet and has a single trunk
with a crown of about 15
feet in diameter.
,-, The leaves of the
cabbage palm are fan-
shaped and curve into the
shape of a "C". This can help
you with their identification,
"C" for "cabbage" palm. Old
leaves will fall from the palm,
leaving behind leaf stem bases
or "boots" arranged in a unique
cross pattern on the trunk.
Depending on the individual
palm, some boots will remain
on the trunk, while other palms
will shed their old leaf stem
The cabbage palm prefers
to live in full sunlight, but
will tolerate some shade. It is

very adaptable to a variety of
soil conditions. It is drought
tolerant, but will also survive
in standing water. It's also great
for North Florida landscapes,
because it can withstand
temperatures below freezing.
Palms, despite their tree-
like look, have more in
common with lawn grasses,
bamboo and corn than with
oak trees or maples. Palms
are monocotyledons and lack a
vascular cambium so they are
unable to repair their vascular
tissue if damaged.
So, the most important thing
to remember when caring for
your cabbage palm and other
palms on your property is to not
damage the trunk in any way.
The entire trunk of the palm
is alive and cannot heal itself
when damaged. Any damage to
the trunk of a palm will leave
it susceptible to disease and
insect infestations.
While it is best to transplant
niost trees and shrubs in the
late fall and winter, the best
time to transplant a palm is in
the spring and summer months
(end of April through August).
This is done because the soil
.is warm and it gives the roots
time to grow vigorously.
