the Fair as an underwear model.
While in Texas, Henderson
became friends with Dale
Evans while she and her future
husband, cowboy singer and
future movie star Roy Rogers,
were courting. Shuler said her mother
recalled how Rogers (before he became
famous, of course) would frequently
arrive around suppertime ready for
a homecooked meal. "Mother said

Near collision with patrol car
leads to traffic stop and arrest
A Liberty County deputy who
had to swerve out of the way of
oncoming car that pulled into his
path Saturday night later arrested
the driver on drug charges.
Deputy Wade Kelly was
traveling east on State Road 20
around 11:25 p.m. when he saw
a westbound car cross the center
line of the road and drive into his
lane, nearly causing a head-on
After dodging the car, Kelly
turned around and followed the
red Acura and saw it go off the
right shoulder of the road twice
and then cross the center line
When he signed for the driver
to pull over, the car continued on
for several hundred yards before
stopping on the side of the road.
As Kelly approached the driver
to speak with-him, he noticed a
glass pipe, a clear container and a
paper towel wrapped in sport tape
in plain view on the passenger's
He identified the driver as
Thomas Earl Johnson, 40, of
Port St. Joe, and noticed he was
having difficulty talking and
completing sentences as he was
being questioned. The officer
noted in his report that there was a
strong odor of marijuana emitting
from the car.
Johnson didn't seem sure of
where he was going and where he
had just come from, first stating
that he had been to a wedding in
Tallahassee and was heading home
,to Panama City. Later, he said
was coming from CrawfordviUe
and was going home to Port St.
Joe. "He was disoriented and
erratically mumbling," according
to the arrest report, which noted
that he had difficulty standing up
and had to hold on the side of the
car for support.
Johnson was placed in the back
seat of the deputy's patrol vehicle
while his car was searched.
Two clear plastic containers
which held what appeared to be
methamphetamine and a glass
pipe were on the passenger's seat,
along with a taped up paper towel.
When he cut open the paper towel,
the deputy found two small clears
bags of methamphetamine.
Johnsoh denied ownership
of the illegal materials, saying
that the drugs belonged to a
hitch hiker he picked up earlier.
Johnson was unable to say where
or when he picked anyone up and
could not recall if his passenger
was a man or woman, according
to the deputy's report.
The substance found
in the car tested positive for

possession of methamphetamine

her husband at a Blountstown
motel last week.
Blountstown Police Officer

outside when his wife jumped
on his back, tried to choke him
and bit his hand. After the two
separated, she went into their
room and locked him out. He
said he went to the back door
and into the bathroom, where his
wife sprayed his face with water.
As he ran out of the bathroom, he
said she once again jumped on his
back and choked him. After he
broke free and went outside, she
threw a lamp that shattered the

room to talk with Nikomi Cossey,
he found her lying naked on the
living room floor. She said her
husband had kicked and choked
her, but refused treatment when
EMS was called. No marks or
injuries were found on her.
When the EMS crew went
outside the residence, Nikomi
Cossey left and was found hiding
in the bushes at the rear of the
residence. When the .officer tried
to get her out of the bushes, the
woman said she had to vomit.
The officer stepped back and
then Nikomi Cossey crawled
toward him and began gagging
herself in an attempt to throw up
on his feet.
After Hoagland stepped back
from her a second time, she sat
up and spit on him.
She was advised she was under
arrest and he struggled with her as
he.tried to place her in handcuffs.
As she was being escorted to the
patrol car, she continued to resist

A 54-year old Franklin County man
landed in the Gulf County Jail Friday
charged with killing a black bear.
Larry Joe Colson, 54, ofApalachicola,
turned himself in at the county jail

SE area of the county near the Odena fire
He's charged with intentionally killing
a threatened species, a black bear. The
charge is a third-degree felony, punishable
by up to five years imprisonment and up
to a $5,000 fine.
"Initially, uniformed patrol officers
received information that someone
claimed to have killed a Florida panther
on private property in Gulf County,"
FWC investigator Steve Thomas said.
"They made an on-site visit Jan. 20 to the
property where the incident supposedly
occurred, and at first, they didn't find
"They returned on Jan. 22 and found the
remains of an adult male bear. Colson was
identified as a suspect, was interviewed
and admitted shooting the bear."
Thomas said no panther remains were
found during the visits to the property.
Officers seized Colson's Remifigton
.30-06 rifle as evidence.

Playing political games with our future
Jerry Cox is a retired military
officer and writer with an extensive
background in domestic and
foreign policy issues. He lives in
America, it is a worldwide problem. Un-
like the Great Depression of the 1930s
which was an American problem, finan-
cial issues now reverberate throughout
the international markets.
In spite of all the naysayers, govern-
ment spending is the only solution to this
problem. Only governments have the
capacity to reverse the downturn in the
markets. Those that think that private
equity is going to rescue the economy
are smoking dope.
Those that think that government is "socializing" the
market place are also out to lunch. The government isn't
going to run these companies and financial institutions.
The government isn't going to send over a GS-15 bu-
reaucrat to run General Motors.
But the government botched it when the Secretary of
the Treasury handed out $350 billion to the financial in-
stitutions without an ironclad contract dictating payback
provisions. The Congress rolled over on that one. Talk
about getting scammed.
The Congress should get some backbone and demand
an accounting of the $350 billion and not hand out an-
other dime without a contract. There should be an agree-
ment or contract with every agency, state, or corporation
receiving tax money from the government.
The government, shouldn't give the State of Florida
one dime without an agreement on how the money is go-
ing to be spent. Florida should have to list every project
and every agency that is going to receive tax money and
how much each is to receive. Then Florida should have
to show proof of how the money was spent.
The market isn't at fault for America's financial woes.
The people who manipulated the market are the culprits.
There is a role for government in the markets. The role
of government is to control people, not market forces.
People use the market to lie, cheat and steal.
The market is always attempting to equalize supply
and demand. The market is ruthless in this respect. When
demand exceeds supply that is wonderful, but when sup-
ply exceeds demand then the market does what it is sup-
posed to do, and that is what the market is doing now.
Painful? Yes, but it's market forces in action.
America's economy is in the hop-
per and the nation's financial system
is in disarray, but what is Congress
S doing about it? Well, they are doing
.. _____ what they do best playing political
D games with America's future.
I'm disappointed in President
Obama. He said that he wasn't going

The good news is that President Obama is promoting
a stimulus plan for America's economy. The bad news is
that a Democratic controlled Congress wrote a stimulus
plan full of pork that was sure to drive Republicans in-
sane. It did and Republicans are in high keen. Not one
Republican in the House voted for the stimulus plan.
The House Democrats and Republicans should have
come together and formed a stimulus plan with spend-
ing and tax cuts on which both parties agreed. Then they
should have held hands and presented it to the public and
to the Senate. That is what the American people expect-
ed, but no, the Democrats had to stick it to the Repub-
licans at the expense of the American people. Childish
behavior, to say the least.
Politicians, particularly Republicans, need to under-
stand that America is in a serious situation. This is no
time for all the political rhetoric. Save it for the campaign
trail. Now is the time for both political parties to ignore
their.political views and do what is right for America.
Figuring out what is right in economic and financial
terms is not rocket science. Limbaugh, Hannity and all
the "financial experts" on television and radio need to
put a sock in it because they are ignorant concerning
economic and financial issues. Political blather is what
they are all about.
America is not in a routine economic downturn which
happens every five to seven years. Most first-year eco-
nomic textbooks have a chart that reflects the ups and
downs in the market for the past fifty years. The joke
in business school is that not even God can control the
America is in a recession in which all segments of the
market are in a freefall. But the problem is not just in

He said those listings, compiled

Liberty County School Board has named the school winners for Teacher
and Employee of the Year. To qualify for this honor the employees were first
nominated by their peers and then a ballot vote occurred to select winners
for each school site.
The Liberty County School Board has held an annual banquet since 2006
when Karen Peddie took charge of the program. Due to the current recession,
that event will not occur this year. Peddie expressed deep regrets over the
cancellation of the banquet. "I have thoroughly enjoyed honoring our people,
but the event is a budget expense the district simply cannot afford at this
time. Another factor we considered before making this decision was that a
highlight of the event has always been gifts to the winners that were donated
from local businesses. We don't want to ask the businesses for donations
this year because we understand they are struggling financially just like we
are. We are sincerely thankful for their contributions in the past."
All winners will be recognized at the next regular meeting of the
School Board, and there will be a luncheon for all winners sometime in the

Choose fruit tree varieties with care
r by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County )
Late fall through winter in
Northwest Florida is a great time
for planting fruit trees. There are
several kinds that work well in
backyard landscapes. However,
not every fruit tree will grow and
reliably produce in our area.
-Climate is probably the most
important factor determining
where certain fruits can be grown.
Most fruits grown in the northern
part of Florida are deciduous,
which means that during the
winter, plants lose their leaves
and go into a period of dormancy
or rest. During this rest period,
the plant must be exposed to
chilling temperatures. .
This exposure to cold
prepares the plant to
resume active growth
below 45 degrees
throughout the winter
determines the total
hours of chilling.
Species differ in the
amount of chilling
they need in order .'
to completely rest / '
and resume growth.
Sparse foliage, few to Blackberries, especially the thornless
no flowers and poor varieties, are easy to grow.
fruit production result
from not enough chill hours. between 550 to 700 chill hours
Santa Rosa County receives during the average winter. Check

Service for the chilling
hours in your area.
It is wise to do your
-purchasing and planting
fruit in North Florida.
Which fruit varieties grow
r well here is probably the
most important question
to ask before deciding
what to plant. How much
care is needed to grow this
type of fruit? Do I have
time to devote to pruning,
spraying, fertilizing and
watering? To find the
answers to these questions,
talk to a knowledgeable
employee at a local, reputable
nursery, contact your local UF/

Figs are one of the most popular
fruits in the South. Besides being
low-maintenance, they also are
one of the fruits most adapted
to the Gulf States. They prefer a
well-drained site but adapt to a
wide range of soil conditions. The
main varieties are Brown Turkey,
Celeste, Green Ischia, Magnolia
and San Piero.
Figs prefer full sun, but
partial sun to partial shade is
acceptable. Add mulch to insulate
the root system during the winter
and conserve soil moisture in
the summer. Prune the trees
occasionally to keep them at a
Citrus is becoming more and
more popular. Popular satsuma
varieties include Owari and
Brown Select, which mature in
November. Kumquats mature in
late November and early to mid-
December. Meiwa is a common
Citrus needs full to partial sun
for best fruit production. They
adapt to many soil types and to
container gardening as well.
Blueberries are a low-
maintenance, bush-type fruit
species. These plants need acid
soil, and their shallow, fibrous
root systems benefit from mulch.
They prefer full sun.
varieties for Florida include
Premier, Tifblue, Climax and
Brightwell. Plant two or more
varieties to guarantee cross-
pollination and good fruit
development. Most blueberry
plants will produce a good fruit
crop by the third year after
Persimmons for our area
include native and oriental
varieties with the oriental being
preferred. Oriental persimmon
fruit is seven tol0 times larger
than native persimmon fruit.
Persimmons are best adapted
to partial sun or partial shade.
Hana Fuyu and Fuyu are popular
Most retail garden centers
have good availability of fruit
trees from November through
February. So take advantage of
this time of year to add some
fruit varieties to your backyard

P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321 /
Some officers must have an
extraordinary sense of smell
To the editor,
The abilities of our law enforcement officers is a source of
Liberty County's finest has the nose of a bloodhound? (RE: Last
week's front page story) I am glad that the drugs were kept off the
street, however, probable cause doesn't include "...smelled raw
cannabis." I know that hemp rope can still be bought, same plant
family, perfectly legal, even a dog couldn't tell the difference.
I believe, and this is my opinion, the deputy made an illegal search.
He reported that the request to search was denied. The person locked
the doors and was battered by the deputy for refusing to unlock the
car. Have we come to be a Communist state? Do the rights guaranteed
in our Constitution mean nothing? Did all the people that fought and
died for those rights die in vain?
Once again, I don't advocate illegal drug use, nor alcohol either. I
am a veteran, I believe in patriotism, respect our flag and the republic
for which it stands. I have noticed that there is a standard repose for our
deputies on both sides of the river. It is my opinion that these officers
that use the same lame excuse to search as a smell of alcohol or drugs
must have a lot of personal experience (use) of these things.
I think that a quarter pound (4 ounces), if wrapped in plastic, should
have been hard to smell it. I have smelled cannabis both burning and
raw. It has a pungent odor like Italian herbs in the raw. I believe that
probable cause is seeing and identifying a drug and then if a person
says no to search get a search warrant from a judge. If I am correct
a warrant has to say what is expected to be found and exactly where
it will be located.
.It is my opinion officers are violating our rights with a gun and a
badge. Am I the only person willing to question these acts? Is it too
difficult to do the job in a professional manner, protect and uphold
the Constitution of the United States? Why does the public remain
quiet when it is a badge and a gun?
Of course I, have asked why law enforcement doesn't watch
drinking establishments and stop some of the people leaving, (there is
reason in that) but I was told that would be entrapment. (?) I am glad
that I can express myself, my opinion, under the first amendment.
By the way, I didn't know that the fifth amendment doesn't exist
any longer. You must be careful when responding to an officer. You
may be obstructing justice or lying.
Thank you kindly, Mike Bailes, Altha
EDITOR 'S NOTE: Deputies will tell you it's hard to mask the smell
of marijuana. In the case cited above, the marijuana was in an old
Ziplock bag that had holes in it. Even if packaged well enough to
hide the obvious odor, a drug dog can still readily detect the presence
of marijuana hidden inside a vehicle. Detecting the odor of a drug
gives officers probable cause to conduct a search.
What changes does Obama
have in mind for our country?
To the editor,
I recently received a letter from the Conservative Caucus with an
office in Vienna, Virginia exposing just a few of the ideas of President
Obama and his friend LaRaza.
They agree that the millions of illegals in the U.S. should be given
amnesty, oppose any construction of a border fence, do not condemn
attacks on our border patrols, claim illegal aliens are entitled to S.S.,.
Medicare and welfare plus taxpayer-funded education, oppose English
as our official language, support sanctuary cities for illegal murderers,
rapists and gang members.
In other words, they agree these illegals should be able to override
our constitution, our families and the health and lives of men and
women that have sacrificed for the U.S. and the ones of the U.S. that
have worked and paid our share of taxes that helped build this nation
to its greatness. This is only the beginning of completing the merging
of the US, Canada and Mexico.
What other changes does Obama have in mind? If your readers
like these ideas, OK. If not they can contact the Conservative Caucus,
450 Maple Ave. East, Vienna, VA, 22180. This organization is 35
