Hosford woman claims

her share of $245,183

Fantasy Five top prize
TALLAHASSEE -- The Florida Lottery announced that FANTASY
5@ winner Kathy Sumner, 46, of Hosford, claimed her share of the.
FANTASY 5 top prize drawn on March 4. The drawing produced
three top prize winners of which two tickets remain unclaimed.
Sumner received a one-time, lump-sum payment in the amount
of $81,727.67. She purchased her winning FANTASY 5 Quick Pick
ticket at Telogia Grocery, located at 19994 State Road 65 Northeast
in Telogia. The retailer received a bonus incentive of $500 for selling
the top prize winning ticket. The winning numbers were: 01 15 -
17 23 32
According to Sumner, she buys a FANTASY 5 with EZmatch ticket
every day. "I have matched 3-of-5 numbers before, but this is my
first-time winning big," Sumner said. When asked how she plans to
use her winnings, Sumner replied "pay off my bills and take my mom
on her first cruise for a girl's trip."
Total ticket sales for this top prize generated approximately
$316,000 for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF). Since
1988, the Florida Lottery has contributed more than $19 billion to
the EETF, benefiting our students and schools, as well as funding
more than one million Bright Futures scholarships. By a two-to-one
margin, Florida voters in 1986 approved a constitutional amendment
authorizing the state to operate a lottery for the purpose of generating
significant additional moneys for education.

Judge orders City of Bristol to

'take whatever steps necessary'

to clean up S.R. 20 flea market


by Teresa Eufbanis, Journal Edtor
After a long battle between the City of Bristol
and a property \owner oer the cleanup of his flea
market, a circuit court judge has ruled that if no
action is taken within 60 days, the city "shall
hate the absolute right to take whatever steps
as may be necessary to bring said properties in
compliance, including entering the property.
removing the junk. hauling the junk a"\a. and
otherwise disposing of the junk "
The Final Judgement was issued March 5
and signed by Circuit Court Judge George S.
Reynolds. 111.
Since August 2006 the City has repeatedly
urged John Shuler to clean up the overflot of
discarded goods that fill his yard along State
Road 20. Shuler said he has tried to comply with
the city's demands, explaining that he had 13
trailers full of items hauled away and removed


three mobile homes from the property.
The yard at 11463 NV S.R. 20 is still home
to an aging assortment of wheels, springs, cages,
bottles, dishes and other household remnants.
"All this is merchandise I bought for a business
that's older than any ordinance the cit\ has." he
said about the flea market, which he started in
19,5. "The weeds are trimmed and all my stuff
is tn baskets or on tables that's freely draining,"
he said "There's no standing water." The reason
for all the fuss? "It's just that they don't like the
looks of it." he said.
But his business has its fans. "I got some
people just crazy about my flea market," he said.
A customer last week stopped by and bought
an incubator and 50 eggs. A few days earlier,
someone else came to purchase four hens.
Much of his in entory is stored inside the

Man charge

theft for takir
A 40-year-old Wewahitchka
man was arrested for grand theft
after a witness saw him and another
man remove a utility pole from a
yard in Kinard earlier this year.
The witness reported seeing
Marcus Cain and another man,
identified as Brian Traylor,
at a neighbor's home on Jan.
23, according to a report from
the Calhoun County Sheriff's
Department. After seeing them
load a power pole into their truck,
the neighbor went out to tell them
-to stop but they ignored him and
left with the pole.
The property was taken from
the residence of John Faircloth on
Lil Circle. Faircloth identified the
stolen property as a 200 amp utility
pole valued at around $330. Also
missing was an electrical box with
breakers and a 50-amp connection


a collision and then turned around
and followed the vehicle. The
vehicle turned off State Road 20
and went south onto Pea Ridge
Road before making an abrupt turn
into the Dollar General parking lot.
The vehicle circled the parking
lot and when it came back toward
the entrance, the deputy rolled down
his window to speak with the driver
but she drove past him, ran a stop
sign and returned to State Road 20.
He then conducted a traffic stop
and when he asked the driver for
her license, she said she had left it
with a friend.

The items were valued at $505..
Cain later stated that Traylor had
driven him to Bay County to sell
the pole and equipment "to a man
in a white truck."


Smith noted that the drivers
eyes were bloodshot, her speech
slurred and there was-a strong odor
of an alcoholic beverage coming
from her.
. When she stepped out of the
vehicle, she tried to steady herself
but nearly fell down three times,
according to the deputy's report.
She admitted she had been
drinking and gave permission for
Smith to search her vehicle after
he pointed out seeing a couple of
pills inside. He retrieved two blue
pills, one from the passenger's seat
and the other from the floorboard.
Story identified them as Lortab
and admitted she did not have a
prescription for them. Two more
of the pills were found inside her
purse.
After failing a roadside sobriety
test, she was charged with DUI and
taken into custody.
She gave breathalyzer readings
of .181 and .177. Florida's legal
limit is .08.


Altha couple charged

with meter tampering
A Clarksville couple who were in the process of being evicted from
their rental home were arrested on charges of meter tampering after their
landlord discovered a "jump wire" attached to a line allowing them to
use electricity illegally.
Phillip Wayne Vaughn, 36, and his wife, Lisa Ann Vaughn, 33, were
arrested March 2 on charges of meter tampering and grand theft. The
value of the stolen utilities was estimated at $800.25, according to the
offense report filed with the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department.
The couple moved into the home, located at 16154 S.W. Post Office
Road, on Dec. 10. A judge had ordered them to vacate the premises by 5
p.m. on Feb. 19. When the landlord went to check the property that day,
he found them gone and discovered the illegal hook-up to the meter.

A man driving the wrong way
on State Road 71 North late at night
was arrested after forcing a deputy
to take evasive action to avoid a
head-on collision, according
to a report from the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department.
Roy Lee Collins, 33, was
traveling south in the northbound
lane around 12:24 a.m. March 2
when he almost hit Deputy Eddie
Dalton's northbound patrol car.
When the deputy turned
around after the close call, he
saw Collins' truck travel over the
center line again before he pulled
him over just south of Altha.
The deputy noted in his report
that he could barely understand
what the driver was saying because
his speech was slurred. Dalton
stated that there was a strong odor
of an alcoholic beverage coming
from the driver.
Collins nearly fell over after
he stepped out of the truck and

then failed a series of roadside
sobriety tests, swaying from side
to side as he attempted to keep
his balance.
After being placed in the back
of the patrol car, Collins became
angry. As the deputy drove back
to Blountstown, Collins started
head-butting the plexiglass cage
separating the front and back
seat. When warned to stop before
hurting himself, Collins cursed
the officer and began kicking
the driver's side passenger door,
causing it to bow out.
When he was again warned to
stop, Collins replied, "What are
you going to do?" and continued
kicking and hitting the vehicle.
The deputy pulled over in an


attempt to secure Collins, who
then attempted to kick him.
Despite warnings to stop, Collins
continued until the deputy fired
his taser at him, hitting him in
the left thigh.
Collins had a bloody nose,
which was apparently the result
of him repeatedly hitting the seat
divider with his head. When they
arrived at the Blountstown Police
Station to use the breathalyzer,
Collins refused to give a breath
sample and demanded a doctor.
He was then taken to the
county jail, where EMS arrived
to examine him for injuries but
he refused treatment.
Collins was charged with DUI,
DUI refusal and resisting without
violence.
He was traveling with a
passenger, identified as Kimberly
Ann Damon, 29. She was taken
to the sheriff's office, where she
called a friend for a ride home.

EMERGENCY HELIPADS: One done,

three more to be built in Liberty County


There have been many exciting and positive
changes over the past few months in Liberty
County. One of these changes has been
the construction of a new EMS helipad in

the residents in those areas without causing
any interruptions at the school where it was
previously located.
Liberty County Emergency Management

like to sincerely offer our appreciation and
thanks to the Grace United Methodist Church
for allowing us to use their property and for
being so pro-active in the health care of the
community.
We would also like to thank C.W. Roberts

paving of any new helipads that we are currently

Barack Obama bought a brand new swing set for
his daughters, Malia and Sasha. It has a slide and
a rope ladder. It's great. It's much nicer than the
one George Bush used. JIMMY FALLON

According to a new study, people are, sleeping
less because they're worried about the economy. I
think also it might have something to do with the fact
they're sleeping under bridges. CRAIG FERGUSON

Beautiful day. It was so sunny, as a matter of
fact, down on Wall Street, the stockbrokers were
applying sunscreen before they jumped.
DAVID LETTERMAN

Police were called to the White House. Appar-
ently, President Obama was in a meeting with some
potential cabinet nominees. Someone noticed a
suspicious looking document on the table no one
had ever seen before. Turns out it was just a tax
form, but it gave them quite a fright. JAY LENO


President Obama -- talk about a tough gig, and
talk about optimism. The guy is saying it's a good
time to buy stocks. So here's what you do. Instead
of that latte you buy in the morning, pick yourself up
a thousand shares of GM. DAVID LETTERMAN

The President's latest nominee, this one for US
trade representative, a man named Ron Kirk, who
owes the government $10,000 in back taxes, has
agreed to pay his taxes. That's what the paper said
today. He's agreed to pay them. When was there a
choice? JAY LENO

In New Jersey, somebody bought a lottery ticket
and won $212 million. Now, under the new Obama
plan, after taxes, that person will have enough
money left over to buy another lottery ticket.
DAVID LETTERMAN

For the first time, millions of Iraqis have access
to the Internet. They can even go on Facebook, as
long as the face is wearing a veil. JIMMY FALLON

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner announced
he plans to go after tax evaders after failing to pay
his own taxes. It is all part of the government's "Op-
eration Do As I Say, Not As I Do." JAY LENO

Microsoft is promoting its new search engine,
called Kumo, to compete with Google. Bill Gates
promised that it will make Microsoft the No. 1 place
on the web for things that have already been in-
vented. JIMMY FALLON

The government has given AIG $30 billion more.
We gave them $165 billion. Now we're giving them
$30 billion. You know what AIG stands for? "And it's
gone!" JAY LENO

The economy is not looking good. Everybody's
cutting back. I don't know if you heard this, but to-
day, the Jonas Brothers fired Nick. JIMMY FALLON

they put A.I.G. in charge of it and the snow just dis-

America's next Greatest Generation?


America's next Greatest Generation?'


A cable news station highlighted
one of the by-products of the econom-
ic recession tent cities. People have
lost their jobs, lost their homes and
have no place to go but to the streets.
The reporter interviewed two of
the people in this tent city in southern
California, a middle-aged man and a
woman. Both had lost their jobs in the
construction trades. The man said that
he had moved into an apartment in an

effort to save money, but that didn't work, and he had
no choice but to live in a tent. The man had five adult
children, but he had not told them where he was because
he was ashamed that he was unemployed and living in
a tent in.the middle of someone's pasture. The woman
had a similar story. She was in her fifties, alone and un-
employed.
If people have any sense of American history they
know that the Great Depression began in 1932, about 77
years ago. Many senior citizens lived through that era and
remember it well. Many of them then fought and lived
through the years of World War II. Historians and writers
have labeled these seniors America's Greatest Genera-
tion, and rightfully so. People in that generation epito-
mize the strengths and character of the American people.
It's our turn now to show our strengths and character
as we collectively confront a challenge to America's fu-
ture, a challenge equally
threatening as was the
Great Depression and
the looming war clouds i a q .-
on December 7, 1.941
when America was at-
tacked at Pearl Harbor
by the Japanese.


In business school
there is a joke about the
economy or business cy-
cle. The joke is that not
even God can affect the
business cycle. There is
some truth to that, and
the current recession is
a good example. The
reasons for the recession
are many and compli-
cated.


sic economy


For the past couple of decades Amer-
ica's economy has been a bubble econ-
omy. First, the tech bubble of the 1990s
carried the basic economy. Then the real
estate 'bubble came into being in early
2000. But while investors were reveling
in their bubble profits, the basic economy
was getting shredded, primarily by out-
side forces. The most serious of which
was the loss of manufacturing jobs to
foreign countries. While America's ba-
was bumbling along, politicians pushed


home ownership. The Fed made low interest rates avail-
able. Banks and financial organizations lured people into
the real estate market, and people who couldn't afford to
buy homes bought them.
Wall Street recognized the housing market as a golden
opportunity to fleece America, and the bundling and sell-
ing of subprime mortgages was underway. Historians will
label.America's financial meltdown as the Great Ameri-
can Financial Scam that brought America to its knees?
Well, here we are up the well-known creek without
the equally well-known paddle. This is where the test
of America's strengths and character begin. What we
collectively do in the near term to revive the American
economy and preserve some modicum of our way of life
will determine if we become America's next Greatest
Generation.

MEXICAN DRUGS; U.S. GUNS

p WASHINGTON Americans got a wakeup call last week
o about the threat posed by Mexican drug traffickers when the
State Department issued a travel advisory warning vacationers
pp heading for warmer climes of the danger they would face visiting
our closest neighbor to the south. The violence has escalated to
the point where in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, the police
^ chief was forced to flee the city after drug traffickers demanded
his resignation, systematically killing his deputy and three of
his men until he capitulated.
Mexican President Felipe Calderon has dispatched soldiers
and more federal police to patrol the area but so far it's a los-
^ ing battle. The large population of drug users on both the U.S.
and Mexican side of the border represent a demand so great
that rival drug cartels are fighting each other for dominance.
Mexico recorded 6,000 drug-related killings last year, and the
current level of violence is on pace to be even greater in both
* number and boldness.
American arms dealers line the U.S. side of the border, sup-
plying the criminal elements with weapons while the Mexican
government, unable to fully employ its population, tries only
half-heartedly to shut down its most lucrative export, which are
drugs. The result is a closed loop that would be comical if it
weren't so tragic. The guns flow from El Paso, Texas to Juarez,
Mexico, and the drugs flow from Juarez to El Paso. The arms
dealers and their defenders fall back on Second Amendment
rights to justify making weapons plentiful even as the product
that is fought over and defended and distributed is banned in
the United States.
What's wrong with this picture? First, the unbridled traffic
of guns into Juarez and other border towns should shame even
the most ardent member of the National Rifle Association. The
r| NRA, once an advocacy group for sportsmen, has turned into
Sers an unyielding opponent of any and all federal gun regulation.
Upholding the Second Amendment shouldn't mean flooding a
neighboring country with weapons to enhance an illegal drug
trade. Guns kill and they should be registered and their owners
licensed the same way we regulate automobiles and license
drivers.
On the drug side, someone sooner or later is going to have the
courage to call for legalization. The demand for drugs is insa-
-, tiable on both sides of the border, and the world. Going back to
the Opium Wars in China, banning sought-after substances never
works; it just creates a black market. We should have learned
from our experience early in the last century with Prohibition,
an experiment that created organized crime, and which was
4 finally repealed by amending the U.S. Constitution.
'If Mexico's drug market was legalized, it would put the cartels
out of business, and it would allow governments on both sides
of the border to regulate drugs. Legalizing drugs is not the same
as encouraging them. In this realistic world of the future, drugs
would be heavily taxed and would carry warnings about their
ill-effects in the same way cigarettes are marketed today. Indeed,
cigarettes do incredible harm to people's health, far more ac-
cording to reputable studies than marijuana. Outlawing tobacco
is unthinkable because of the huge and ongoing demand, and
society has come to terms with that.
Mexico's president says the violence is confined to just a few
areas in his country. Still, if an American city had its chief of .
police hounded out of his job by drug traffickers, and killings
had become routine, you would expect the federal government
to intervene on a massive scale. When Detroit erupted in riots
in 1967, President Johnson dispatched brigades from the 101 st
- and 82nd Airborne Divisions to quell the violence. We can't tell
Mexico what to do, but if American tourists sta3 home, they'll
* get the message.

What does the Rx for
prescriptions stand for? -J. P.,
Carson City, Nev.
Well, the R stands for the
Latin word for recipe, meaning
"to take," but there's more to it
than that. The total symbol is
actually taken from the symbol
for the planet Jupiter. If you look
in The Old Farmer's Almanac
under the names and characters of
the principal planets and aspects
(page 111 in the 2009 edition),
you'll see the symbol for Jupiter,
which looks like a fancy number
4 with the diagonal line of the
upper left part of the numferal
more curved, much like the
upper right portion of a capital R.
This symbol was once placed on
prescriptions to emphasize that
the god's blessing was on the drug
to help the patient recover.
In the Middle Ages, many


physicians
and herbalists ASK o :
believed that THE
the planets
ruledpeople's A
health, as
well as the
various plants
and shrubs used as remedies.
If you read the 16th-century
books of the English herbalist
Nicholas Culpeper (1616-54),
these planetary influences are
immediately apparent in his
advice. For some reason, Jupiter
-- perhaps being so large -- was
considered the foremost influence
in the curing of diseases, so its
symbol was used to identify
sources of pharmaceuticals,
as well as the prescriptions
themselves. To the ancients, the
planets and their ruling gods
were inseparable. According to


Submitted by Mary Ann Flowers
Seventy-nine voters selected Blountstown as the Coun-
ty Seat of Calhoun County. That was just 118 years ago.
Those facts are a part of some really interesting history,
which one might gather by pouring over the dust-covered
records in the Clerk's office at the County Courthouse.
Browsing through thumbworn and aged-colored volumes
in the sanctorum, one can pick up threads that have twined
our history of Calhoun County together.
It was on February 2nd, 1880, that a group of citizens
decided they wanted to change .the location of the county
seat. Since 1862, the Courthouse hadbeeninAbe Springs.
John M. Bush was Sheriff at that time and William Clark
was the Clerk. The Board of County Commissioners was
composed ofW. J. Rivers, Chairman, 0. W. Donalson, A.
J. Wood, Sr., James W. Smith and J. B. Stone.
At a meeting of the board, a petition signed by 111
qualified voters asked the Commissioners to call an elec-
tion under authority of a Special Act of the State Legisla-
ture of 1872 for the purpose of determining whether the
County Seat should be changed or not.
The board called the election for April 1st and the man-
agers in Precinct One were J. A. Donalson, A. L. Henkley
and J. A. Richards; in Precinct Two J. F. Richards, A. J.
Wood and J. C. Wood; in Precinct Three, J. P. M. McClel-
lan, E. C. Kendrick and W. F. Taylor; in Precinct Four, H.
S. Stone, J. S. Stone and S. Bums.
On April 5th the board reconvened to canvass the elec-
tion. In Abe Springs 19 votes were cast, all for Blount-
stown. Something happened to prevent elections from
being held throughout the County, the Commissioners
decided the election was not legal and ordered the County
Seat to remain at Abe Springs.
But the Blountstown advocates were determined and
would not take defeat. They carried their case before
Judge D. S. Walker of the Second Judicial Circuit. On
May 4th, 1880 Judge Walker ruled that the election had
been legal, that Blountstown was now the lawful County
Seat and he gave the Commissioners two weeks to move
the seat of government to its new location.
On the 17th of May, the board met for its first time in
Blountstown. Chairman Rivers outlined plans for the
building of a new courthouse and they were accepted with

Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase
and Fable, the Rx symbol actually
says, more or less, "Under the
good auspices of Jove, the patron
of medicines, take the following
drugs in the proportions set down."
What is planked shad, exactly?
-C. G., Hancock, N.H.
The LatinnameoftheAmerican
shad, Alosa sapidissima, means
"most delicious shad." Aplanked
fish simply means one that has
been put on a plank, or board,
for cooking. Usually, the board
is slightly larger than the fish
itself, and it may be buttered so


that the fish
I RIS doesn't stick
to it. Often
C the fish is
split in half,
and possibly
boned, before
being placed
in the oven, plank and all, for
baking. "Planked shad with roe
and bacon" or "planked shad
with creamed roe" are early
spring menu items, famous along
the northeast coast of America.
Some communities, particularly -
those near spawning grounds
of this bone-filled member of
the Clupeidae family (related
to herring, sardines, pilchards,
sprats, and menhaden), hold shad
festivals where shad are planked
and baked, or simply grilled, for
the crowds. Once called "poor
man's salmon" because of its


a three to one vote, Donalson voting no. W. R. Shields
was to draw the plans for the new building, for which he
was to receive ten dollars.
June 1st was set for the day to receive bids for the new
courthouse, but when the board met that day there was
no Clerk and no Sheriff present. Finally James S. Fan-
nin, a Deputy Sheriff, appeared for Sheriff Bush, but no
Clerk came and the meeting adjourned. Meeting the next
day with all present, the board leased the Solmanowitz
building on the river bluff, the site of McNeal, to use as a
temporary quarters.
Bids for the Courthouse were finally placed in the Com-
missioners' hands on June 8th. W. R. Shields presented
his bid for the two-story building for $1,341. H. S. Stone
lowered this figure to $1,240 and received the job.
During the preliminary moves, James S. Fannin took
office as Clerk relievingMr. Clark, and during August,
the new structure began.
Events moved slowly until June 1881, when the Com-
missioners had to find new quarters while waiting for the
slowly constructed courthouse. Mr. Fannin made them an
offer to rent the entire second story of his store building.
His offer was accepted on June 6th, 1881, just as a new
board took office.
Then new Board of County Commissioners was com-
posed of W. J. McKeown, who was elected Chairman, J.
P. M. McClellan, W. J. Montford, H. L. Connell and J. M.
Taylor. Other new officers were J. S. Stone, who became
Sheriff. Sheriff Bush took over the post of Tax Assessor
and Jeff Richards became the County Treasurer.
On April 3rd, 1882, two years after the election, Chair-
man McKeown was empowered by the Commissioners
to look over the new modem Courthouse and accept the
keys if everything was up to standards.
It was on May 1st, 1882, that contractor Stone an-
nounced the new public office building complete. A scat-
tering of a crowd, large for the time, mounted on oxcarts
and horseback and rode to see their new Courthouse. It
was a great day, long remembered by the proud citizens of
the County, who felt that they had the last word in County
Courthouses. A river steamer from Columbus, Georgia
added color to the occasion and Calhoun County celebrat-
ed the birth of the "Kingdom of Opportunity."

Aj


availability, shad was often salted
or smoked for preservation. It is
said that it was one of the foods
that kept George Washington's
winter troops from starving at
Valley Forge in 1776.
Fannie Farmer (1857-1915)
described how to make planked
shad in The Boston Cooking
School CookBook(1896): "Clean
and split a three-pound shad. Put
skin side down on a buttered oak
plank one inch thick, and a little
longer and wider than the fish,
sprinkle with salt and pepper,
and brush over with melted
butter. Bake twenty-five minutes
in hot oven." Generally, the fish
is served on its plank, mainly to
keep the fish from breaking apart
while being served. Occasionally,
you'will see a recipe for cedar-
planked fish, suggesting thaf the
type of wood used is meant to add
its own flavor to the fish. In any
case, you certainly wouldn't wvant
to use plywood or any wood with
glues or painted finishes.

wood frame building that was
home to his grandparents and
his father. "My family's had a
business here for 100 years," he
said. "My grandma sold goat milk
and peas out of her garden." He
feels he should be free to continue
that tradition. Instead, "I've been
treated like I was a-Communist
Russian," he said.
"I've been cooperative," he
said, explaining, "I've been
fighting city hall when I could
have been cleaning up."
He said "the judge stepped
over the line" in last week's order.
"The only thing I can think of
to do is put up a tin fence." He
said it's not something he wants,
to do, but "I've got a lot of tin.
I'll put up a fence, paint it red,
white and blue and say, 'I Love
America,'"
"He has 60 days to clean it
up, or we'll clean it up and give
him the bill," said City Council
Chairman Brigham Shuler. The
city could then place a lien on
the property.
"I don't know what kind of
business program he had there,"
the council chairman said. "At
various times, he told us he was
no longer in business...and then
said he was back in business.
He's kind of kept us in, a state
of wonder about what's really
going on."
Over the past couple of years,
the junk yard owner has been
served with letters from the city
and notices to appear in court.
An incident between Shuler
and City Code Enforcement
Officer Michael Wahlquist led to
Shuler's arrest on battery charges,
for which he was convicted
and sentenced to five years'
probation.
"We want to clean up the city
of Bristol and we are prepared to
go to great lengths to accomplish
that. Most people have not given
us any problem, in fact, most have
been completely cooperative
and gone to great expense to do
so," the council chairman said.
"He's the only one we've taken
to court."
"In my humble but accurate
opinion, the judge is being used
by the city," said John Shuler.
Wahlquist said there are at
least seven other sites in town

Covenant Hospice to celebrate Certified Nurses Day March 19


TALLAHASSEE Covenant
Hospice is celebrating Certified
Nurses Day, March 19 by honoring
its board certified nurses. Board
Certification of nurses plays an
increasingly important role in
the assurance of high standards
of care for patients and their
loved ones. Nursing, like health
care in general has become
increasingly complex. While a
registered nurse (RN) license
provides entry to general nursing
practice, the knowledge-intensive
requirements of modem nursing
require extensive post-secondary
and continuing education and a


strong personal commitment to
excellence by the nurse.
Covenant Hospice nurses
are specially trained in pain
management and symptom control
techniques that help to alleviate
the suffering often associated
with a life-limiting illness.
Covenant nurses make regularly-
scheduled visits, provide patient
and family education, skilled
patient care, and are available on
a 24-hour per day on-call basis'
for emergencies.
Covenant Hospice encourages
Board Certification in Hospice
and Palliative Care (CHPN,


CHLPN or CHPNA) for all its
nurses, and the not-for-profit
organization currently exceeds
the national average of certified
nurses. Of the Covenant staff,
46% of RN's, .31% of LPN's
and 34% of Hospice Aides are
Certified in Hospice and Palliative
Care. Patients are encouraged to
inquire whether there are certified
nurses on staff when they visit a
hospital or receive care from a
healthcare provider.
Covenant Hospice is a not-for-profit
organization dedicated to providing
comprehensive, compassionate services
to patients-and loved ones during times
of life-limiting illnesses.

an excellent selection of colors,
including Serena Lavender,
Serena Lavender Pink, Serena
White and Serena Purple.
Plant summer snapdragon in
full sun and well-drained soil. Set
plants approximately 12 inches
apart. Or, grow them in patio
containers. Summer snapdragons
look particularly nice when grown
with plants with gray leaves, like
wormwood, silver plectranthus or
lamb's ear.
A slow-release fertilizer
incorporated into the soil at
planting time will ensure uniform
growth. Let the plants dry out
between watering times, but be
prepared to provide supplemental
irrigation during dry spells.
Summer snapdragon can
be grown from seed, summer
tip cuttings or division of the
root mass. Viruses have been
a problem with the genus in the
past, particularly in the bicolor
forms. It's best to buy greenhouse
grown material in the spring from
reputable sources.

proximately 0.7 miles of road re-
construction and maintenance.
Funds would be collected for
stands within the sale area to sup-
port the 3-year prescribed burn.
