Pansy Arnold Langston Allen Ryals, 36,
of Quincy fired
two shots at a deer
from about 100
yards away, according to Lt. Stan Kirkland of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). A
pellet from the second shot caught Langston just below
her right armpit and exited from her upper left chest.
Liberty County Deputy Caryl Marotta arrived to find
two men administering CPR to the woman as she lay in
the road. The deputy assisted attempts to revive Langston
while an ambulance was en route but the injured woman
did not have a pulse or appear to be breathing.
When the ambulance arrived, the deputy took the
wheel and drove it to the Hosford landing site as EMTs
continued efforts to revive the injured woman. Langston
was transferred to an emergency helicopter and flown
to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, where she was
Langston and her husband, Frank, were running deer
dogs on the Blue Creek Dog Hunting Club lease that
morning when they drove over a branch and stopped near
a deer crossing.
As she stepped out to spot the deer, she was one side
of heavy foliage while the shooter was on the opposite
side. Hunting Club president Joe Brown said Langston
was walking up on the left side, where "it was almost a 90
degree turn and the bushes had grown up" in an apparent
effort to take aim at the deer. When Ryals fired a shot
at the deer, "It jumped across the road and he shot it a
second time," Brown explained. "He shot on one side of
the road and then on the other side; Pansy was standing
right in the center of that."
Brown said, "When she ran out into the road, she ran
out into fire. It's just a freaky thing. She was in the middle
and caught one pellet."
He added, "Hunting is a dangerous sport. In this
particular case, about the only way the accident could

wife, who had been at the barn, and his parents,

the structure, were told to vacate the area
The ignition caps for the dynamite
were stored on the ground floor
of the barn, away from the actual
explosives. Margo Sumner said she
was told that when dynamite gets old,

the dynamite to stabilize it.
Next, a small robot was put on a
front end loader borrowed from the
Liberty County Road Department and
raised up into the loft and operated
by remote while officers watched the
progress on a monitor outside. "The
robot picked up all the dynamite, put
it on a little tray and brought it to the
edge of the barn," Margo Sumner
said. "Once they got it on the ground,
the bigger robot came and got it and
took it outside."
The dynamite was placed in a huge
hole that had been dug in a back field,
filled with hay and ignited. "It didn't
explode," she said, "It just burned.
We could see the smoke."
It's not unusual to find forgotten
dynamite stored in old barns and
mishandling the material could have
"We were very fortunate. It took
a little time but everything went
according to plan," said Steadman.
"We highly encourage anyone who
runs across old dynamite, blasting
caps or military munitions to call
local law enforcement immediately
so we can respond and deal with it."
The bomb squad's experience
in Hosford was a little unusual, he
added. "The fact that it was in a loft
presented a unique set of challenges
in being able to remove it," he said.
"It was quite an experience,"
Margo Sumner said of the recovery
and disposal coordinated at her
in-laws' barn. She said she was
impressed with law enforcement's
response, praising local officials as
well as the bomb squad from Leon
County. The Hosford-Telogia Fire
Department also responded, and
the Liberty County Sheriff's Office
brought lunch for everyone working
at the site Monday. "Everybody was
just wonderful," she said.

Ryals, who is a friend of
Langston's son, Robert Bradley,
was distraught at the scene.
Witnesses said Bradley and
Langston's husband reassured
Ryals at the scene that they knew
the shooting was an accident.
The incident remains under
investigation, according to
Kirkland, who noted that "there
was some conjecture" that the
pellet that hit Langston had
ricocheted off the truck.

accident," said Liberty County

If House Speaker Pelosi had formed a joint group

gress, they should have to read "Economics for Dum-
mies." The stuff that some of these politicians believe
about the economic process is scary. But, too late. They
are in place and deciding issues that affect all of us.
Using economic data from Moody's Economy.com
and the Center for Economic Policy and Research, an-
alysts assessed the effects of tax cuts and government
spending on the economy.
Both work, but the devil is in the details. The tax cut

retired military Conversely, permanent tax. cuts lose

iomestic and pirate tax. rate returns thirty cents in
es. He lives in. government revenue. That's a 70% loss.
Same for the Bush tax cuts which re-
turned $0.31 in government revenue.
A temporary increase in spending on food stamps gets
the best bang for the buck at a return of $1.73. Why?
People on food stamps spend the money which is then
circulated through the economy. A dollar is efficient
when spent four times or more.
Infrastructure spending is a major point of contention
between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans want
more tax cuts and Democrats want infrastructure spend-
ing. The Democrats are right on this one because one
dollar of infrastructure spending returns $1.59.
If you listen to Republicans and corporate America,
you might believe that the business community is over-
taxed. In 2007, corporate America paid 14.7% of taxes
.collected by the federal government. Individuals paid
50.8%, 31.6% came from employment taxes, 1% from
estate taxes and 2% from excise taxes. Corporate Amer-
ica'has for years and continues to pay about 15% of the
cost of government.
Republicans make these silly comments about re-
ducing taxes on business because business creates jobs.
True, but a business is not going to open another ware-
house or factory and hire workers just because they re-
ceived a tax break.
This is not difficult to understand. A business or cor-
poration will not spend one dime to create jobs unless
there is a return on their investment. There has to be a
demand for their goods and services for a company to
build things and hire workers. Conversely, as is the case
now, when demand decreases, companies reduce the size
of their workforce and close or sell off properties. That is
what a business operation is all about.
By the time you read this, the Congress will most
likely have stumbled through the debates and produced
a spending bill that satisfies just enough Representatives
and Senators to passand then we all will hope for the best.

Liberty County United Way fundraiser nets over $1,300
BRISTOL The Liberty
County United Way Committee
held a special fundraiser on
Friday, Feb. 6, selling Boston
Butts to the community. The
fundraiser was a huge success,
raising over $1,300 for this year's
"This is an important event for
our local United Way Campaign.
Not only did we raise funds for
our community as every dollar we
raise in Liberty County stays in
Liberty County, but we also spoke
to many about the important work
that our United Way is doing
right here in Liberty County,"
said Robert Hill, Liberty County
United Way Committee member
and event organizer.
Sheriff Donnie Conyers and
his team prepared 130 Boston
Butts, and all were sold before
the cooking even started.
Bill Montford, the 2008 United
Way Big Bend Chairman, and
local resident was on hand for the
day's activities and stressed the
importance of the Liberty County
United Way. "Not only does this
campaign assist those in need,
but it also serves as an economic
driver in Liberty County, investing
dollars to ensure that health and
human services are available to
the citizens that need it most,"
Montford acknowledged that
this was indeed a tough year
for fundraising, but thanked
the Liberty County United Way
Committee for being creative in
their fundraising efforts. He also
put out a call to local residents to
get involved. "I'm asking for
your help now ... and in a big
way. I know times are tough, but
that's only made it worse for our
neighbors who are in need. Show
them you care ... live united."
Liberty County's 2007 United
Way Campaign invested over
$7,500 back into the community,
providing funding to 12 local
agencies: The Alzheimer's
Project, American Red Cross,

Annual event raises funds for Pioneer
Settlement in a most 'tasty' way
There was music, candlelight and tables brimming
with tasty treats at Saturday's annual Classical
Desserts event, which raised funds for the
continuing operation of the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement in Blountstown. Kids enjoyed the
chocolate fountain (below left) while the grow- ...
ups gravitated to the deep bowls of trifle, layer
cakes and mountains of cookies. By evening's -t
end, there were plenty of full tummies and empty
plates. JOSEPH SUMMERS PHOTOS

Hope your new year is off
to a great start. It sure is here
at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital!
Here's an update on some of the
many good things going on.
We're getting a lot of that
new equipment I've been talking
about for awhile now. New beds
are being installed as we speak
and if you remember, some of
them will be of the type that the
patient can be weighed while in
it. This is not only good news for
the patient but our staff as well.
You should see the smiles on the
faces of our nursing staff!
Our new portable radiology
unit and new ultrasound unit
are due in any day now. The
ultrasound will also be able to do
echocardiograms. The new large
radiology unit is due within the
month. We have already received
several new stretchers and vital
sign monitors, all designed to
help our staff take better care of
.Still on the way is a new
automatic machine to help
with medication dispensing,
a new emergency generator,
and significant upgrades in our
heating and cooling system.
We're excited about all of this
new equipment and will keep you
apprised of its arrival.
We are also performing
mammography again since
obtaining a new machine for this
important test. Ask your doctor
to also consider a dexascan (bone
density) test when you schedule
your mammo exam. We do those
We're pleased to announce our
new physician officers for this
year. Dr. Cliff Bristol is our new
President of the Medical Staff.
I by Ron Gilliard,
Dr. Jerry Skipper is the Vice
President and Dr. Iqubal Faruqui
is the new Secretary. A huge
thank you goes to Dr. Misbah
Farboqi for his dedicated service
as President of this very important
body for the past few years and
during some very difficult and
challenging times. Again, we are
very fortunate to have so many
fine doctors in our community.
We received another wonderful
donation when Gulf Asphalt
Company gave us $10,000 last
month, the second installment
of their pledge of $30,000 to the
hospital over three years. We are
using these and other donated
funds to continue to upgrade the
hospital in many areas.
For example, we will soon
open our new registration office
in the main lobby. It will give
improved privacy to our patients
as they register for tests. And boy
are we doing a lot of that! We had
the busiest month in December
the hospital has ever had and it's
continuing into the New Year.
Our total revenue for all of 2008
was up almost 50% compared
with 2007. We're averaging
almost ten inpatients per day and
do 214 "cat scans" per month
for just a couple of examples of
our increased volume. We really
appreciate patients using our
services for the things we can
of the year
I continue to receive a lot of
compliments on the courteous
and compassionate care we are
providing. I continue to thank
our hard working and dedicated
staff for that. They are the best!
We're not perfect and will always
work hard to get even better in the
quality of care we provide. But
I'm very proud of what they've
done this past year.
And I would like to recognize
our employees of the quarter
and for the entire year of 2008.
Our Employee of the Quarter
is MaryBeth Brehm, LPN. She
is a wonderful example of our
staff providing that good care.
She is a "Super Nurse," highly
professional and totally dedicated
to her patients. She truly cares for
them, as well as her co-workers.
Our Employee of the Year
is Estella Harden! She is our
Accounts Payable clerk, and
again, an excellent choice for
this award and recognition.
Estella goes out of her way
to help everyone. She is very
hard working, dedicated and
professional. She is an excellent
representative of our entire staff
and we are very pleased she is the
recipient of this award.
Our warmest congratulations
to these two outstanding
employees and my personal
thanks to them for the great jobs
they both do. Again, we have an
outstanding staff and they have
done a tremendous job as we've
continued to turn the hospital
around. My heartfelt thanks to

I notice that some florists
offer packets of a white powder
that's added to the vase water to
increase the life of cut flowers. Is
there a homemade version? -T.
J., Ashley, N. Dak.
Answer: Many flowers, such
as roses, asters, daisies, and
chrysanthemums, do well with a
touch of common liquid bleach
added to the water. The quantity
should be 1 teaspoon of bleach
to 1 gallon of cold water. More
is not better, so don't get carried
away! Like adding a pinch of salt
or an aspirin to the water (other
old methods recommended by
some florists), the bleach solution
disinfects the water and keeps
bacteria from damaging the cut
blooms. The bleach solution has
the added benefit, in some cases,
of brightening the color of the
flowers. Orchids, for instance,
will intensify in color if bleach
is added to the, water. Roses and
other flowers that tend to open fast
and drop their petals quickly may
last a little longer. An exception
AK OLD FARMER'S
to this trick is gardenias-they
prefer pure water. Experience will
be your guide.
Other factors in the longevity
of cut flowers are the temperature
of the room that you keep them in
(cooler is better, but not freezing)
and the mix of other flowers that
share the vase. For example, it's
always best to keep daffodils by
themselves because their sap will
cause other flowers to wilt more
quickly. Tulips are especially
sensitive to anything but pure
water, which is why you often
see them isolated, with just a few
greens in their arrangements.
Can you offer any advice about
how to choose the best kitchen
knives? -E. H., Reno, Nev.

FOR RECIPES, GARDENING TIPS, AND WEATHER FORECASTS, VISIT:
Answer: There are two
important things to consider: the
metal content of the blade and
the grinding process used. With
metal content, you want to look
for a high content of carbon,
which helps retain sharpness.
Stainless steel blades go dull
much sooner than carbon steel
ones do, but the trade-off is that
the latter will darken and stain
much more easily. Vanadium
content is another key to look for
when you're seeking sharpness.
Chromium content is what
increases the stain resistance.
When it comes to the grinding,
there are hollow-grind edges and
canalled edges. Either one can
be made sharp, but the hollow-
grind edge may hold its sharpness
somewhat longer. A hollow-
grind edge tends to be more
expensive than a canalled edge
and has a curve on each side of
the blade, so the narrowing down
to an edge is quite gradual. Good-
quality serrated knives also have
.a hollow-grind edge -- some may
even have a layer of tungsten
carbide at the edge to increase the
longevity of the sharpness; again,
these tend to be more costly. The
canalled edge is a refinement
of the flat edge, or "V" shape,
where the sharpened "V" is rolled
slightly to resist damage from
Also notice how the handles
of the knives are constructed. A
"full tang" knife is one where
the metal of the blade extends the
full length of the handle, making
a more permanent attachment. A
"half tang" is good, but less so.
Any other design is more likely
Is it true that Laura Ingalls
Wilder 's books were once banned
in the U.S.? -J. T., Stockton, Calif.
Answer: No, they weren't
actually banned, but one of
the books in her Little House
series was challenged as being
discriminatory toward Native
Americans. There was an attempt
to keep it from the bookshelves in
schools and some libraries, but the
effort proved unsuccessful. Two
challenges to the book occurred
in 1993, one in Thibodaux,
Louisiana, and the other in
Sturgis, South Dakota. The Little
House on the Prairie does contain
statements that, if taken out of
context, might be misconstrued
as derogatory toward Native
Americans whom the Ingalls
family encountered on their
trip westward, but even young
children seem to comprehend that
the author of the book speaks out
against such racial prejudices.
Fond readers of the Laura
Ingalls Wilder series that begins
with The Little House in the Big
Woods are often puzzled by the
discrimination charge. Indeed,
the books were unusually open-
minded about the effects of the
early settlement and development
ofAmerica on Native Americans.
In the stories, based on the
true accounts of Laura and her
parents and siblings, the family
is frightened by an encounter
with Native Americans in the
Kansas Indian Territory, where
the Ingalls have built a log house.
Unlike one of their neighbors, Mr.
Scott, however, whose opinion
is that "the only good Indian is a
dead Indian," Pa (Charles Ingalls)
"figured that Indians would be
as peaceable as anybody else if
they were let alone. On the other
hand, they had been moved west
so many times that naturally they
hated white folks."
The books in the original series
were published between 1932 and
1943; The Little House on the
Prairie came out in 1935. It was
this book in particular that the
Michael Landon television series
was based upon, but all the books
are still popular with both young
and old audiences today.

Madison has a twin sister,
Makenzie, who has always had
short hair. Teachers and school
mates were easily able to tell
the two girls apart because
of their hair. When Madison
first saw her new hair style,
she said, "I look just like
Makenzie. No one will be
able to tell us apart." She had
a brief moment of regret.
But then she remembered
the goal she had set four years
earlier and realized that she
could always grow her hair
long again, while the children
that she was donating her hair
to would never be able to grow
hair at all.
When Madison's three-
year-old cousin Andra saw
her with short hair for the
first time, she said, "Now
there's two Makenzies and
two Madisons." Other family
members noted that while it
may be a challenge to tell the
two girls apart, the cause is,
well worth any extra effort on

Caitlyn will have another

was overwhelming! 67 children,

Edewaard, BHS Choral Director

outstanding job. Mrs. Kimbrell,

Stop the improper pruning of crape myrtles

The crape myrtle
(Lagerstroemia indica) is one
of the most beautiful and
popular flowering trees in
Florida. Often called "the lilac
of the South," this plafit is
tough, adaptable and showy.
Its blooms are large and long-
lasting and the tree has great
fall color and attractive bark.
The practice of chopping
off the tops of crape
myrtles has become
Many people believe
that it is required to
some prune because
the plant is too
large for the space

neighbors doing it
and feel the need to
follow suit. There may
be some instances
in which heavy
pruning is necessary,
but typically light
pruning is all that is

Crape myrtle should be a

best way to ensure this is to
choose the cultivar that best
suits your landscape needs
before planting. There are
many new cultivars in different
sizes and colors. The dwarf
(3 to 6 feet) and semi-dwarf
(7 to 15 feet) selections now
available make it easy to
choose the right size plant for
a certain space.
There's no telling how many
thousands of dollars are wasted
on incorrect pruning of crape
myrtles. To be quite honest an
unpruned crape myrtle is almost
always superior in appearance
to a "professionally" pruned
one. Some things in nature are
hard to improve on.
Spread the word among
your friends and neighbors
and eliminate crape murder.
Use proper pruning techniques
on your own trees, or ask your
yard maintenance professionals
about their pruning techniques.
Remember to choose the
appropriate size plant for the
correct sit. and prune very
sparingly for beautiful crape
myrtles in your yard.

FEBRUARY 11, 2009 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 27
Week of Feb 8 to Feb 14
ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Creativity is in your stars this
week, Aries. Raise your sights and
show others just what you can ac-
complish. Remember that quality,
not quantity, is the key to success.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Taurus, do your best to avoid
stressful situations this week. You
are bound to explode and those
around you will inevitably pay the
price. Keep your cool.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
You have to come to grips with the
fact that you can't always be No.
1, Gemini. You must be ready to
compromise if you want
to get things done.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Partnership matters of all sorts will
operate more smoothly over the
next few days. That's good news
for you and everyone involved,
Cancer. You've learned
to relax on issues.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
You are a much more easy-going
person this week, Leo. However,
it's best if you're not too laid back
at work because attention
to detail is needed on all
aspects of your job.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, flattery will take you a long
way for the next several days.
Hard work, however, will take you
even further. You will find it easy
to impress employers and others.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, you will gain something you
don't think you are entitled to this
week. Don't think about giving it
back. It may be a reward for some-
thing you have done in the past.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Change is a big aspect of the week,
Scorpio. Expect things to be a little
topsy-turvy. Go with the
flow because things will
calm in a few days.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Sagittarius, you'll save the day
when you catch a big mistake
before it has the potential to be a
problem. Your thorough approach
is noticed and rewarded
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
It's time to slow down, Capricorn.
This week focus on those things
that others often don't see. Catch
up on chores, pay the bills and be a
homebody for a change.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
This week you'll find it difficult to
concentrate on anything serious,
Aquarius. Even your infectious
smile gives away your need for
fun. You feel like a million bucks.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
If you find yourself fighting or
struggling with your partner you
may want to swallow your pride,
Pisces, and just give in.

Deer season extended in northwest zone
Thus far, this deer season
hasn't been good to me as far
as quantity goes, but thanks to
a good friend who invited me
to hunt with him on his lease, I
did bag a very nice 7-pointer on
New Year's Day. What a way
to start off the New Year! And
believe me, that's a great buck
for a hunter like me, who's spent
the past 18 years hunting the
flatwoods of Franklin County.
But I still have plenty of room
left in my freezer, so I'm not
throwing in the towel just yet
- after all, there are still lots of
hunting days left in my neck of
So if you're like me or if you
live in the central or southern
part of the state and you don't
mind hunting with a primitive
weapon, then point your
pickup truck north, because the
Northwest Hunting Zone's deer
season's still goin' strong on
private lands and most wildlife
management areas (WMAs).
The second phase, if you will,
of muzzleloading gun season
runs Feb. 19 March 1 in this
part of the Panhandle. This
unique late season, which occurs
only in the Northwest Zone, was
established to allow hunters the
chance to hunt the rut that runs
from late Jan. through Feb. in
this part of the state.
A $5 Muzzleloading Gun
Permit is required to hunt during
this season, where, on private
land, hunters have the choice
of using a muzzleloader, bow
On WMAs, this post-season's
referred to. as the archery/
muzzleloading gun season.
Hunters can use bows or
muzzleloaders, but no crossbows
- unless they possess a Disabled
Crossbow Permit. Hunters who
choose to hunt with a bow must
have the $5 Archery Permit,
and those using a muzzleloader
need the $5 Muzzleloading Gun
The most common game
to hunt during this season are
deer and wild hogs. Only bucks
may be taken (even if you use a
bow), and one antler must be at
least five inches in length. On
private land, the daily bag limit
is two. Bag limits and antler
size for deer on WMAs can
differ, so please consult the area
brochure before you hunt.
Wild hogs are considered
livestock on private lands, and
because of this, they can be
taken year-round with no bag
or size limits. On most WMAs,
there's also no bag or size limits,
and hogs are legal to take during
most hunting seasons except
spring turkey. On selected
WMAs, specific bag and size
limits do apply, so check the
area's brochure to make sure.
No.dogs may be used in the
pursuit of deer or hogs during
this season, butleashed
dogs can, however, be
used to track wounded
game if necessary. And
it's important to note
that no turkeys may
be taken during this
Bows and crossbows
must have a minimum d
weight of 35 pounds,
hand-held releases on bow
permitted. Broadheads use
taking deer must have at
two sharpened edges wi
minimum width of 7/8 i

Seventeen of the

any of 'em, you must have the

goin' on hard and heavy.
