City Councilman

is charged with

attempt to poison

neighbor's dog
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Blountstown City Councilman David Blair, 64,
has been charged with attempted cruelty to an animal
after he allegedly tried to poison his neighbor's
dog. -
Verna Patterson, 42, said her son thwarted the
attempt when he grabbed a piece of sausage stuffed
with five pellets of rat poison that was tossed over
the fence where the family's rottweiler "Dibo" is
chained to a pole behind their residence at 20248
NW Evans Avenue.
Their back yard meets Blair's, whose home faces
Hwy. 71. The dog was chained next to a utility
shed.
Justin Watson, 21, was sitting in the computer
room of the Patterson home around 11:30 Thursday
when the dog started barking.
"You can see the whole back yard from the
computer room," his mother said. Through a missing.
board in the fence, "Justin saw David Blair stomping
to get the dog's attention. Then he saw him toss
something over the fence."
She said Justin ran to get the sausage and found
the poison pellets inside.
When asked what he was doing, Blair replied,
"I'm trying to make the dog be quiet," according
to Justin.
Justin called his mother at work and told her,
"Mama, this man's trying to kill the dog."
She then contacted the Blountstown Police
Department before going home.
After the poison-stuffed sausage was turned over
to the police, one of the officers who responded to
the scene commented that he had seen Blair that
morning at the co-op in Blountstown, according
to Patterson. It was later confirmed that he had
purchased rat poison there earlier that day.

Calhoun School Board votes 4-1


for high school site on Hwy. 69


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A4-1 vote at last week's Calhoun County School Board
meeting has resolved a long-running battle over where the
new Blountstown High School will be built.
The new site located north of Blountstown, at Mason
Road and Hwy. 69 includes 77 acres with a price tag
of approximately $540,000.
School Superintendent Tommy McClellan said the
new school will be around 130,000 square feet and the
campus will include practice fields for softball, baseball,
football as well as a track. "We've got a lot of room for
growth and we've got room to build parking lots and
gyms," he said.
Since the decision was made to forego combining
Altha High School with the Blountstown High School,
the architectural plans that have already been prepared
will need some changes.
"We're going to have to downsize the lunchroom
and auditorium," he said. Instead of four serving lines


in the lunchroom as originally planned, they will have
two. When Altha's students were factored in, the design
included an extra home economics class and culinary area
which they will no longer need.
"We're hoping construction will start in late September
or early October," he said.
The new school will accommodate 600 students; BHS
currently has an enrollment of about 420. "There's plenty
of room to fake care of extra students," McClellan said,
pointing out that the facility has been deemed a "School of
Choice," which means anyone in the county can attend.
"There will be approximately 40 acres of the school to
begin with," he said, explaining that 13 acres of wetland
area will be left alone. The remaining acreage "might be
used somewhere down the road."
The decision to built on that site instead of the
previously proposed existing BHS campus will solve a

Consumers warned to watch


out for stimulus money scams


TALLAHASSEE -- Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is warning
Florida residents not to fall
for scams involving federal
government stimulus dollars.
Numerous scams are surfacing,
some attempting identity theft
and others seeking an "advance
fee" payment.
Consumers are being
spammed with emails
promising stimulus money
grants or offering to help
them qualify for stimulus
funds. -One email claims
"Congratulations! You've been
selected to receive a FREE
Stimulus Check in the amount
of $613.27!" Consumers are


asked to provide, their bank
account numbers and other
personal information in order
for the money to be deposited
into their accounts; but, instead,
con artists drain their accounts
or steal their identities. In
some cases consumers are
told they must pay an advance
fee for a grant or that they
can obtain a list of economic
stimulus grants for a fee. The
email requires the consumer
to send a cashier's check or
requests the consumer's credit
card information.
"It's clear that criminals
are preying on the public's
desperation and using the
stimulus plan to con people
out of their hard-earned


money," Bronson said. "They
should just delete these emails
as quickly as possible and
understand that the federal
government is not providing
stimulus money over the
Internet."
Bronson points out that the
government does not charge
people to apply for grants
and information about grant
-programs is provided for
free.
Anyone who thinks they may
have already been victimized
should report the scam to the
Federal Trade Commission.
Complaints can be filed in
English and Spanish online
at http://www.FTC.gov or by
calling 1-877-382-4357.


A Clarkville man was ejected from his
motorcycle when he collided with several bales
of hay that fell from a Mack truck and trailer
Tuesday morning in Calhoun County, according
to FHP Trooper David Cox.
The motorcyclist, identified as Richard L.
'Allsop, 47, was taken to the emergency room at
Calhoun Liberty Hospital with non-life threatening
injuries, the trooper said.
Allsop was eastbound on State Road 20, just
west of Williard Smith Road at 6:33 a.m. when
hay bales tumbled off a truck traveling in the


of problems, McClellan said.
Blountstown Middle School
will be moved into the old BHS
buildings. The county's Special
Programs Offices, currently
located in the Hayes House on
River Street, will be transferred
into the old BHS vocational wing.
He said it's possible the middle
school, built in 1957, will be
donated to the city. "They might
want to fix up the gym and-
playgrounds for public use," he
suggested.
The plan to build on the current
BHS campus would have been an

member Danny Ryals added
an amendment to the purchase

Facilities Funding they would

He said the effort for a new
high school has been in the works
for almost five years.

Rowan of Quincy.
Allsop's bike hit the hay and went onto its left
side, ejecting him. The motorcycle continued
traveling east on its side until coming to final rest
at a nearby intersection.
Both vehicles were traveling around 60 miles
per hour.
The truck driver was charged with a criminal
violation for traveling with an unsecured load
resulting in injury.

Motorcyclist taken to hospital after

running into fallen load of hay bales
















In the initial complaint filed by the police department,
BPD Major Rodney Smith reported that Blair denied
throwing anything over the fence. "He went on to say
that this dog rushes towards him and his grandchildren
any time they are near the fence," according to the report.
Blair also stated that Patterson had a problem with him
because he once supervised her kids when they were on
probation. He said he had no problem with the dog as
long as it's kept in a secure place away from him and his
grandchildren.
Patterson is adamant that "Dibo" is not a dangerous
animal. She said the one-year-old male is very playful
but kept on a chain to prevent him from running into the
street or a neighbor's yard.
"We've never had any complaint about the dog," she
said. "He does not bark unless he is provoked or sees
other dogs. Even if the dog was barking, Mr. Blair could
have used other options."
Because her truck was gone, "Mr. Blair obviously
thought nobody was at home," she said. Her husband and
son were in the home and two other vehicles were parked
on the property.
"When you've got people like that who are running our
town, you have to wonder 'who did we put in office?'"
she asks. "Of course it's wrong to try and kill a dog. It's
terrible to know it's a City Councilman. How can they
disobey the law?"
The charge filed against the city councilman is a second
degree misdemeanor, which does not merit removal from
office, according to Blountstown City Manager James
Woods.
Because Blair is a member of the City Council which
oversees the police department, the case was turned over
to the State Attorney's Office because it presented a
conflict of interest.

During a search of the property, investigators found
additional evidence of the meth-making process,
including iodine crystals, a hot plate, muriatic acid and
drain cleaner- ingredients commonly used to adjust the
PH of the meth to complete the cooking process.
A number of other items needed to manufacture meth
were recovered.
A blue plastic storage tote found on the back porch
held a package of coffee filters, paper towels, several full
one-ounce tinctures of iodine, a pill grinder, household
drain cleaner, a cup, flammable solvent, ephedrine, a 16
ounce bottle of alcohol that was three-quarters full, a 12
ounce bottle of anti-freeze, sandwich bags, nine lithium
batteries, pliers, a shot glass, a hot plate, a cup with
ephedrine residue (bi-layer liquid), a 16 ounce Masonjar
with bi-layer liquid and a gallon-size container of muriatic
acid that was one-eighth full.
Two Coleman stoves and a skillet were also found on
the back porch, along with a black trash bag that held
seven Gatorade bottles filled with ephedrine wash and
iodine crystals, empty pseudoephedrine boxes, several
stripped lithium batteries, an empty one gallon container

of Coleman fuel and a coffee filter that appeared to contain
red phosphorus.
Members of the Gadsden County Drug Task Force
assisted in the search.
Bond was set at $115,000 for James Whittington. His
wife's bond was set at $65,000.

Landmark Park to feature quilts


at Spring Farm Day March 21


DOTHAN, AL -- About 20
quilts, several of which have never
previously been put on show, will
be on display at Landmark Park
on Saturday, March 21, from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This exhibit,
featured in the park's Headland
Presbyterian Church, is held
annually in conjunction with
Spring Farm Day, presented by
CenturyTel:
Until about a half century
ago, many frugal wives in rural
areas fashioned quilts out of
scraps of cloth left over from
necessary sewing. They sewed
the pieces together in a variety
of patterns, which were, in turn,
sewn together to form a quilt
top. Working in groups, women
would mount the top on a frame,
backing it with a durable cloth
such as cotton muslin with a thin
layer of combed cotton or batting
between the top and back. They
then carefully stitched along the
edges of the pieces to join the
layers and along patterned lines to
further "quilt" the surface of the
bed cover. The process resulted
in some of the finest pieces of
folk art in the history of this
country--powerful expressions
of the creativity and artistry of
women.
The quilt exhibit will display
patchwork and applique quilts of
traditional and modem designs.
Patterns will range from 19th
century samplers to the long
popular "Sunbonnet Sue," as well
as recent adaptations of nine-
patch and other designs.
Other activities during
Spring Farm Day will include
demonstrations of old-fashioned
skills and crafts like shearing
sheep, blacksmithing, the


Several quilts will be on display in the Headland
Presbyterian Church at Landmark Park during Spring Farm
Day on March 21.

A RECAP OF RECENT
OBSE.vATIONS BY LATE

NIGHT -TEL-EVISION T-O


The Iranian government has demanded an apol-
ogy from Hollywood saying the movies 300 and The
Wrestler were insulting to Iranians. Well how about
this, Iran: You apologize for the hostage crisis, pur-
suing nuclear weapons, high gas prices, financing
Hamas, denying the Holocaust and setting fire to
the Danish embassy because of a couple cartoons,
and then you'll get an apology for The Wrestler.
SETH MEYERS, Saturday Night Live

General Motors says they won't need the $2 bil-
lion bailout money after all. Apparently they're get-
ting great returns with some guy named Madoff.
CRAIG FERGUSON

Politicians in the state of Iowa have voted to
rename their Department of Elder Affairs. They're
changing the name to the Department of Aging.
Have they thought this through? I mean, now, el-
derly people will be calling the DOA. JAY LENO

Madoff'svictims thought they were making nice,
safe investments. Now I'm certainly not blaming
them, but maybe they should've been tipped off by
the guy's name. 'Made-off.' That's like giving your
money to a guy called 'Steve Criminal.'
CRAIG FERGUSON

How about this satellite they just launched that
will look for Earth-like planets in our galaxy that
might contain life? They say they're trying to an-
swer the question, "Is there intelligent life on other
planets, and if there is, will they loan us money?"
JAY LENO

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnson have broken.up.
That's right. That's right. And apparently it was not
that big a surprise. Even the Russians saw it com-
ing. DAVID LETTERMAN

Jon Stewart, in an interview with David Letter-
man: 'The thing that upsets me the most, honesty,
there are three 24-hour financial networks. All their
slogans are like, 'We know what's going on on Wall
Street.' But then you turn it on during the crisis, and
they're like, 'We don't know what's going on!' It'd
be like turning on The Weather Channel in a hur-
ricane, and they're just doing this: 'Why am I wet?
What's happening to me? And it's so windy! What's
going on, I'm scared!' How do you not know?"

There's talk president Barack Obama wants to lift
trade restrictions with Cuba, which is great news for
anybody here looking to buy a '58 Buick. JAY LENO

The federal government agreed to provide an
additional $30 billion to AIG. According to AIG, $15
billion will be used to build the world's biggest toilet,
down which the other $15 billion will be flushed.
SETH MEYERS, Saturday Night Live

I have some exciting news, the Obama family
is finally getting their dog! Yeah, they say they're
getting a Portuguese Water Dog. And today, Rush
Limbaugh said he hopes the dog fails! JAY LEND

President Obama took on the teachers union by
saying he wants merit pay for teachers and to fire
the ones who do not perform well. That is pretty
bold. A Democrat taking on the unions? That's like
Rush Limbaugh going after the donut manufactur-
ers. JAY LENO

The U.S. government (read that as
U.S. taxpayers) has given the Ameri-
can International Group (A.I.G) C
$170 billion to bail them out of the
financial mess that they created. Now Jerry
AIG is going to pay the dullards in officer
the business unit that caused the col- foback
foreign
lapse of the company $165 million in \kal
bonuses.
A fellow named Edward M. Lid-
dy, the government-appointed chairman of A.
that the bonuses are required to keep the "mos
executives." If the people that brought the A
financial system to its knees are the "most sk
ecutives," then I would hate to see their "les
executives."
How stupid and inept can the U.S. governor
The government gives these turkeys truckloads
and they give bonuses to people that I would ca
nals.
Did the government have any contracts c
ments concerning the use of this cash? Were t
agreements about how A.I.G would conduct
operations after receiving the cash? What v
Liddy's marching orders? Af-
ter all he was appointed by the
government to run A.I.G, and I
would think his responsibilities
included some degree of protec- %
tion for the American taxpayer
who is bailing out these toads.
I generally agree with Presi-
dent Obama's approach to solv-
ing the financial issues and
other government financial
,problems like funding of Medi-
care. However, having said that,
I can't imagine why a lawyer
like Obama would not ensure
that every dime doled out to the
these people would not come
with an ironclad contract as to
how the money was to be used
and how the company's busi-
ness practices would be changed

to prevent any further scamming of the
American public.
N ER Obama's treasury and economic of-
ficials are making "I'm shocked, I'm
tired military shocked" comments about the latest
thanextensive A.I.G rip off. They say they are look-
Yomestic and ing into what they can do to correct this
es. He lives it-
s. He lives i problem. They are checking on their
or better said our legal rights. They
then wimp out by saying that the con-
tracts for bonuses were in place before we gave them
the country store, and there isn't much they can do
about it. A contract is a contract.
Really? When I was in law school taking contract
courses, I recall that the courts considered some con-
tracts unconscionable, meaning morally unacceptable.
I think that contracts that give bonuses to people who
brought down the American financial system are mor-
ally unacceptable.
I have a clue for Obama and his treasury people.
Call the Department of Justice. Investigate, charge and
lock up some of these people. If that doesn't work, call
Jack Bauer from the television series 24. Jack will clean
house at A.I.G and save America.

national unemployment rate of 7.6 percent.
Each of the 5 counties that make up the Chipola Regional Workforce
Board showed an increase in unemployment. Calhoun and Holmes
showed the largest increase, increasing by 1.2 percent in January
2009. Liberty County continues to have the lowest unemployment
rate in the state, with a rate of 5.5 percent.
Florida's annual nonagricultural employment rate for November
2008 is -2.6 percent. The rate represents a loss of 206,900 jobs for
November 2007 for a total employment level of 7,823,200. This is
slower that the national rate for November, which is -1.4 percent.
The November 2008 job growth rate continues the trend of negative
over-the-year growth that began in September 2007, primarily due
to declines in construction.

Is there any way to tell the
difference between a raw egg and
a hard-boiled egg in the shell? -T.
S., Salem, Oreg.
Well, you could crack it open,
but then you'd be gambling on
getting the one you want. Another
way is to spin the egg on its end.
Try either end, the broader side or
the more pointy one, but in either
case, the cooked egg should spin
quite nicely, while the raw egg
won't spin at all. Some cooks
pencil -an "X" on the shells of
hard-boiled eggs, but this works
only for the cook who knows to
look for the telltale mark.
Always keep both cooked and
uncooked eggs in the refrigerator.
Occasionally you'll see a
photograph of a country-style
kitchen showing a wire basket
of beautiful brown eggs on the
kitchen table. Picturesque though
it may be, that's pure foolishness,


because an unrefrigerated egg
loses its freshness very quickly.
Eggs can be kept up to a month
in the refrigerator for optimum
quality, but only a couple of days
at room temperature. Fertilized
eggs, by the way, spoil more
quickly because of the small bit
of male hormone they contain.
Some consumers pay a premium
price for them, considering them
more nutritious, but that's a myth.
It's also a myth that the small
blood spot you sometimes see in
fresh eggs are a sign of a fertile
egg. Actually, the spot is just a

William Sampson (W.S.) Johnson was born Feb. 20, 1842
in Decatur County, Georgia. He married Susan Samantha
Donaldson, Aug. 9, 1866 in Thomasville, Thomas County,
Georgia. She was one of 11 children of John E. Donaldson
and Mary Bankson. Susan was born August 10, 1845 in
Georgia.
W. S. Johnson was the only son of Bill Johnson and Martha
Welch. After his father died, Martha remarried, to John
Shepherd Haven of Effingham County, Georgia. The Havens
had seven children who W. S. grew up with. W. S. served with
his half-brother.Henry Haven in the 59th Georgia Infantry.
His half-brother Thomas Haven was a neighbor in Calhoun
County. The Havens are buried at Macedonia Cemetery in
Madison County, Florida.
In 1862, W. S.. Johnson served in the 59th Georgia Infantry
as a Private in Company A. He was wounded and captured
at Gettysburg in July 1863 and paroled in March 1864. His
Florida Pension File, written by his half-brother Greenberry
Haven, stated he served as a guard for President Jefferson
Davis. After the war, William returned to Thomasville.
Wounds inflicted during the war plagued him for over 40
years.
In late 1880, William Sampson and Susan moved from their
farm near Cairo (present day Grady County) Georgia to Lee,
Madison County, Florida. They lived on a farm at Live Oak near
San Pedro Bay. William was a Primitive Baptist lay preacher
and served at Corinth in Madison County.
About three years later, he bought 160 acres where they built
a board house from timber on the land. To supplement the farm
income, he and his sons supplied wood for fuel for locomotives.
Bobby cut the wood and Tommy hauled it to the rack two miles
from the farm. Susan had a spinning wheel and loom and spun
cotton for the family clothing. They had ten children: Robert
Henry.1869-1944 (Mary Johnson); Armittie 1867-1946 (Elsberry
Richardson); Harriett 1877-1957 (William Hansford); Mary
1872-1956 (Sumpter Hicks); Martha 1875-1888; John Edward
1878; William Thomas 1879-1959 (Lulu Jackson); and Artie
Lee 1887-1977 (Preston Byrd-William Collins).
William Sampson gave one acre of land for a small school. A
rough schoolhouse was built and his youngest daughter, Artie,


small bit of blood from a tiny
rupture. The spot does not affect
either the flavor or the nutritional
content.
Even in the refrigerator, it's
best to keep eggs in their cartons
so that they don't absorb other
food odors. The egg container
on the door of your refrigerator
is better utilized for your smaller,
wrapped leftovers such as half
lemons, and bits of cheese or
butter. Cracked eggs should be
discarded. If the cracked egg
has leaked onto other eggs in the
carton, simply rinse the others


clean before you use them.
How can Iget rid of the onion
odor in a wooden cutting board?
-B. K., St. Peter, Minn.
Wooden cutting boards are
notorious for absorbing smells
and stains if not properly cared
for. To prevent stains, wash the
board after each use and wipe it
down with mineral oil to season
it. (Resist the temptation to use
vegetable oil, even though it's
probably handy; vegetable oil can
turn rancid and ruin the board.)
To remove odors from a wooden
cutting board, rub it with a piece

was put in school at the age of six and a half. They lived here
until the land would not grow crops and weevils ruined the cotton.
In January 1903, W. S. and Susan moved the family to
Calhoun County, with a covered wagon and buggy. They made
only 25 miles the first day. They reached the Chattahoochee
River and had to be put across on a flat by poles. They bought
100 acres of cleared land with a well and wood land near Altha
and farmed with the aid of William's Confederate pension and
daughter Artie, until he retired in 1910. He died June 7, 1922; his
stone is inscribed as Elder W. S. Johnson. In 1939, as a teacher,
Artie cared for her mother Susan and hired a carpenter to build
a house where Susan lived until her death on November 23,
1944 at the age of 99. After 33 years as a teacher, Artie retired
in 1946 with a pension.
They are buried at Chipola Cemetery in Altha, where the old
Primitive Baptist Church, founded in 1870, sits today.
William Sampson Johnson was a preacher here and his
children faithful members.

What is it about those swallows
at San Juan Capistrano? -C. Y.,
Hartford, Conn.
The legend is that the swallows
always appear on St. Joseph's
Day, March 19, right around the
time of the vernal equinox (which
can vary from the 19th to the 22nd
of March, depending on the year).
The birds are preceded by a few
"scouts" who fly north to the old
mission chapel a few days ahead of
the rest of the flock. The majority
of the birds arrive somewhere
around the 19th-some before,
some after-depending mostly
on local weather conditions and
food supplies. But March 19 is
the day the tourists come to look
for them, and there are always
some swallows to be found by
then, as well as more flying back
to the beautiful old stone arches
of the two-story, high-vaulted
chapel that was destroyed by an
earthquake in 1812. Now without
its roof, the old stone mission
makes a scenic pilgrimage for
tourists and an excellent nesting
site for the swallows. In the
days immediately following St.
Joseph's Day, the community
of San Juan Capistrano presents
its "Fiesta de las Golondrinas"
or Swallows Day Parade,
described by some as the largest
nonmotorized parade in the
nation., Most of the tourists go
home within a few days, but the
birds stay until about October
23, the Day of San Juan, when
they begin their annual travels
southward once again to warmer
climates.

the valuable and important job
that social workers provide all

become overwhelming, many
people turn to a social worker for
help. Here at Big Bend Hospice,
we have 30 social workers
who serve as family support
counselors, grief counselors and
Caring Tree counselors. They
work tirelessly with our patients
and families to help them cope
with the many emotional and
practical issues that accompany
a life limiting illness. These
dedicated professionals assist

'Thank you, Joe Wood' for

the good things that you do
Dear editor:
My name is David House, I am an attorney in Blountstown and
have been for the past 30 years. For 21 of these years I was a part-time
Assistant State Attorney and now I am a part-time Public Defender. I
say this to let you know that I have more than just passing knowledge
about the criminal justice system.
The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office has a program utilizing
inmates, wherein certain inmates are granted trustee status and placed
on a work squad. This squad is under the control of Joe Wood. Joe
loads a vehicle up in the morning with his crew and goes out and
performs public service work in Calhoun County. Some examples of
this public service would be work on Sam Atkins Park, The Pioneer
Settlement, cleaning up trash, mowing, raking, general maintenance,
etc. Most recently Joe and his work squad have been very instrumental
in the construction of the new jail annex.
Last Sunday morning, I happened to be walking and a Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department van pulled up beside me and it was Joe
Wood. In it Joe had a van full of his trustees. I asked Joe, "what are
you doing?" He said "I am going to church with the fellows." As I
continued on my walk the longer and further I walked the prouder I
became of Joe Wood. Monday morningI came back and called Roman
Wood and asked him a series of questions and they were: Does Joe
Wood take his trustees to church on a regular basis? The answer was
yes. Is this part of his job description? The answer was absolutely not.
Does he get paid for this? The answer was absolutely not.
Often times in life we don't get enough credit or any credit for
the good things we do. Joe Wood deserves a lot of credit for doing
this. I for one say "Thank you, Joe Wood." The next time you see
Joe, you need to pat him on the back and let him know what a good
job he is doing.

grant will contribute funding
to Covenant Hospice for nine
months to not only support the
success of individual programs,
but to ultimately assist the VA in
discovering new ways to reach
homeless veterans and veterans
living in rural areas with a focus
on the'Marianna area.
Volunteers in the Marianna
are needed to help Covenant
Hospice reach and serve rural
and homeless veterans. For
more information please, call
Donna.Meldon at 482-8520.
Many Americans are unaware
that more than 50,000 veterans
die each month; that's roughly
28 percent of all deaths in the
United States. Nearly 40 percent
of enrolled veterans live in
areas that are considered rural,
where community hospices and
VA palliative care programs
are often not readily available.
On any given night, more than
200,000 veterans are without
shelter and lack basic healthcare.
Ensuring that all veterans receive
compassionate, quality care at
the end-of-life is a priority of
Covenant Hospice, NHPCO
and the Department of Veterans
Affairs Hospice and Palliative
Care Program.
Hospice care is part of the
basic.-eligibility package for
veterans enrolled in the Veterans
Health Administration (VHA).
-Hospice services also are covered
by Medicare, Medicaid, most
managed care organizations,
private insurance plans, and
HMOs. However, like majority
of the American public, most
veterans don't know that these
options exist.
If you or someone you know
has served in our nation's
military, please contact Covenant
Hospice to learn more about
Veteran's rights and access to
end-of-life care.

Former president speaks at


Workforce Board Conference


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Chipola Regional Workforce Board
E xecuti e Director Richard Willams of t'Bnstol
and his son. LCHS senior Daniel Williams,
were in the audience when former President
Bill Clinton spoke at the National Association
of Workforce Boards Conference last %week in
Washington, D.C.
"Whether or not you agree with his politics,
his speech was wonderful," said Williams.
"It was Clinton who signed the bipartisan
workforce legislation bill we now operate
under," Williams commented In the March
9 speech, the former president noted how
etervone said welfare reform wouldn't work
but it has, telling the group "People \would
rather \work for a living than have it handed
to them."
"He did a venr good job of la\ ing out the


current situation, both in termnns of the economy
and workforce," according to Williams. who
called Clinton "a ver' powerful" speaker. "He
reminded us that now more than e\ er, training
is needed. Folks with skills will be able to get
and keep jobs. Up-to-date skills are important
and you can get that tranung through workforce
de elopment programs."
As for Daniel, the content of the speech was
less important than the opportunity to see the
fonner president. "It's kind of cool to go from
taking sports shots to photographing the former
president," the 17-year-old said. He didn't think
he'd get his photo when he walked in and was
told organizers didn't kInow if cameras would
be allowed. After a Secret Service agent gave
him the O.K., Daniel got his shot.
He summed up the experience in one word-
"Awesome."

Science field trip
Mrs. Edminson, two of her
honors-science classes and
students from her Anatomy class
went to the Mary Brogan Museum,
of Art and Science Saturday,
March 14.
They visited the Universe
Within exhibit where they saw
actual human bodies and organs
that had been preserved. This
exhibit allowed the students
insight to the inside; giving them
a true look at the inner working
of the extraordinary human body.
Mrs. Rachel Edminson believed
that this was definitely a unique
experience that the students will
remember for the rest of their
lives and hopefully they learned
a little too!
Colton Bush honored
by Meagan Benton
Occasionally throughout life
we all encounter people that
can only be described with one
word... outstanding!
On Wednesday March 11
PAEC found they could
describe Colton Bush, a senior
at Blountstown High School


as nothing less. Colton was
presented with an "Outstanding
Transition StudentAward" for his
spectacular work ethic. Colton-
works at Blountstown Elementary
School for two hours a day and
Blountstown Health and Rehab
four hours a day in food service.
Those of us who have grown up
with Colton know what a kind
heart and beautiful spirit he has.
We have always known that when
you look at Colton you think
"outstanding." We have enjoyed
seeing someone else recognize
Colton the way we have always
seen him. This is the first award
of its kind presented to a student
by PAEC, and we are all ecstatic
that Colton was the recipient.
Congratulations to Colton, thank
you for representing our school
and community well and for your
diligence and good work ethic.
FCAT Pep Rally
by Alisha.Strawn-
Last Monday, March 9,
Blountstown High School seniors
hosted a FCAT Pep Rally for
all underclassmen. The theme
was "Whip the FCAT" and


had a variety of skits including
Indiana Jones and Cool Whip
commercials. Students had fun
dancing to the song Y=X which
goes to the tune of YMCA. At
the end of the performance the


seniors had another surprise for
the students: getting hosed down
with silly string! At the end of
the day students that had to take
the FCAT were motivated to do
their best!

Altha's School's Steven Vasallo places in boys' division in three-way tie


Archery in the Schools Program tournament results


Central Florida schools are the
big winners in the second annual
National Archery in the Schools
Program Florida State Virtual
Tournament. Two of last year's
winners repeated victories in their
grade level, and one new school
took a top spot.
For the second straight year,
the Flagler Palm Coast High
School team won the high school
division with a team score of
3,073 points and boasts the state's
top male and female shooters.
Shyla Ramage is this year's high-
scoring girl with 266 out of 300,
followed by last year's winner,
Chelsea Blackburn, with a 254.


Third place also goes to a Flagler
Palm Coast shooter, Shelby
Johnson, with a 249 score.
There was a three-way tie in
the boys' division, with scores
of 269. That score came from
archers Pliny Sohl IIIand Tyler
Anderson, both from Flagler Palm
Coast, and Steven Vasallo from
Altha High School in Calhoun
County.
The tie-breaker goes to the
archer with the most bull's-eyes,
but both boys from Flagler Palm.
Coast had 10 each.
A shoot-off between Pliny
and Tyler at an awards ceremony
on Wednesday, March 18 in the


school gymnasium will determine
the winner. Both the top female
and male shooters receive a
special custom Genesis bow,
' Morrell target and a trophy for
their accomplishments.
Repeating its win this year is
Daniel Jenkins Academy from
Polk County, with a team score
of 2,947. The academy won
the inaugural middle school
tournament in 2008 and came
back this year to reclaim the top
spot.
This year's number one
elementary school is College
Park from Ocala. Last year,
the school placed second in the


elementary school division. The
top three schools in all divisions
will receive gold, silver and
bronze medals for their archers
and a trophy for the school to
display.
More than 750 students in
35 Florida schools competed in
their own school gymnasiums.
All participants received official
tournament t-shirts and certificates
of participation.
"Students who do not normally
participate and enjoy sports-related
or extra-curricular activities
seem to excel in the program
-- something that invariably
carries over into their attitude,


work habits ana other school
activities," Florida program
coordinator Steve Robbins said.
"It often inspires after-school
activities shared by families
and friends, teaching discipline,
respect and self-control."

Tobacco Free Florida the
state's anti-tobacco campaign


Want to quit smoking?

Florida QuitLine can

help; hospital offers

classes for quitters

Have you ever been asked by your physician, "Do you smoke?"
There's a real good reason why they ask their patients that. If you are
a smoker, it increases your risk of having heart disease, stroke, many
different forms of cancer, lung and vascular diseases.
Chronic diseases are rarely resolved spontaneously and they are
generally not cured by medication or prevented by vaccine. What do
you know about tobacco and it's link to chronic diseases?
Smoking is the primary cause of chronic diseases such as chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including chronic bronchitis
and emphysema. These diseases don't wait till you are in your 60s
or 70s to attack your lungs, they can affect your life as early as your
40s.
Too many people spend their hard earned cash every day to buy
a product that, used the way it is intended to be used, will cost them
more hospital and doctor bills than a rich man can afford.
Did you know that tobacco addiction is among the leading
preventable causes of morbidity and mortality in Florida and in the
United States?
Cigarette use alone results in an estimated 430,000 deaths each year
in the U.S. That total includes 28,700 deaths in Florida. That means
a lot of good folks who started a habit that cost them their lives.
The tobacco industry spends close to $1 billion in Florida annually
to market its products, more thairany other state. That's a lot of money!
Because so many of our family and friends are dying from the use of
their products, the Tobacco Industry needs new users. Unfortunately,
many of those new users are our very own children.
Please, if you know someone who wants to stop smoking before-
the chronic diseases attack them, have them call the toll free Florida
QuitLine (1-877-U-CAN-NOW)and get the help they need before it
is too late.
Cessation classes (quit smoking classes) are held at the Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital. Classes are conducted by Amiee Hanvey. Amiee can
be reached at 850-674-5411, ext 209,. If you would like to have classes
held at your church or civic organization, contact Julie VanderMeer,
Calhoun County Health Department, at 850-674-5645, ext 238.
Remember, you can quit and we're here to help!

campaign with television, radio,
cinema and print ads across the
state, encouraging youth to "Be
Free" from tobacco.
The new "Be Free" campaign
message encourages youth to
build self-confidence and identity
without tobacco use and is part
of the state's effort to reduce the
number of youth who begin using
tobacco products and.ultimately
become addicted.
The first television commercial
to be released targets the tobacco
industry's use of kid-friendly
flavors in their products. In a


typical, Florida suburban
neighborhood, the familiar chime
of an ice cream truck attracts
children within ear's reach.
Gathering around the truck, they
notice that cartoon characters
such as a chocolate bar smoking
a cigar and a lemon lighting
a cigarette have replaced the ,
familiar treats.
A leathery-skinned tobacco
executive leans out of the window
asking for orders. As the kids
exchange blank stares, one youth
shakes his head as a voice over
asks, "Who do you think they're
trying to attract?"

Dear Family and Friends of
Liberty County:
I don't want to .inundate any
of you with events on this side
of the world, but sometimes I
feel compelled to share stories
of a daily routine and a burden of
responsibility thatmostAmericans
can not fathom.. I've been on
several Combat Log Patrols
throughout four Provinces in Iraq
and each time I am humbled by the
professionalism and dedication I
see in these young sergeants and
corporals that ,carry the burden
of responsibility of knowing that
their actions or inactions can
reverberate to the international
scene. Most of them are barely
in their twenties and carry this
burden of responsibility because
theybelieve in whatthey are doing.
I recently went on a Combat
Log Patrol (CLP) that spanned
two provinces and lasted three
days. As a Company Commander
I didn't really need to go and
the Marines probably would
have preferred I
not ride along. I "Thesi
can understand. Marine
It would be like
my Commanding with
Officer coming very fg
down to my area
of responsibility what A
and just "hanging stanI
out." I quickly
calmed their
concerns and let them know I
would not get in their way of
performing their mission.
I had a Maintenance Support
Team that was part of this convoy
to conduct training with the
Iraqi Army and perform some
maintenance for some Marine
units operating in the area. I
thought it was important that
I show my Marines from time
to time that I too will expose
myself to dangers just like them
and the fact I appreciate their
dedication and sense of mission
accomplishment.
We started out with the
intelligence brief around 2100
to all the Vehicle Commanders
to discuss recent enemy activity

along the route we were to take.-
We were to travel at night so
we would not interfere with the
"Normalcy" we were attempting
to bring-back to the province by
traveling when roads have less
civilian traffic. The intelligence
update was being briefed by the
CLP Commander, a sergeant

e young 23 years old.

Sgt. Hill. The

Is for." Ambush
Protected
(MRAP)
trucks, various cargo trucks,
and elements of the Security
Force of Gun Trucks, Mine
Rollers, Electronic Counter
Measure vehicles and HMMWVs
"Hummers."
It was a very candid and direct
brief on recent events that was
sobering and very real. The CLP
would have over 100 Marines that
Sgt. Hill was entrusted with to
carry out this mission. Other than
myself, Sgt. Hill was the senior
Marine and "In Charge." I recall
thinking to myself, "Wow, what
a burden of responsibility placed
on the shoulders of this young
NCO." He was responsible for
the welfare, safety and security of


this mission and its Marines. The
CLP would cover over a thousand
miles and span two provinces of
unfriendly territory. Fortunately
we completed a successful and
enduring mission and all of the
Marines came back safe and
more mature than before. I was
truly humbled by the actions of
the Marines in this CLP and the
stress and burden placed on Sgt.
Hill's shoulders knowing he does
this day in and day out, non-stop.
Several of his CLPs have been hit
with IEDs and they have taken
direct fire during their missions.
On this mission we were
lucky. Sgt. Hill plays the cards
he is dealt and each patrol he
is dealt a new hand. What is
important to know is he nor will
any service man or women ever
fold their hand. When you, hear
the American public say "We
support our troops," know these
young Americans going in harm's
way have enough intuition to
delineate between sincerity and
a political. punch line.
* These young Marines I serve
with are the very fabric of what
America stands for. They are
mature beyond their years and
have a profound love for God,
Country and Corps.
Semper Fi!

Root maintenance: The forgotten part of the tree and shrub care


Warmer weather along the
Gulf Coast has encouraged
people to start their gardening
chores. Just walking around
neighborhoods this week, I can tell
that significant pruning is going
on. Most gardeners will spend
time and effort carefully shaping
a shrub or tree. Unfortunately,
not many gardeners will spend an
equal amount of time correcting
root defects.
Roots are usually the forgotten
part of the tree and shrub. They
typically comprise from one-
third to one-fifth of the weight
of the tree. Roots can extend
out three times the width of the
canopy. Massive root systems are
important in stabilizing the plant
during high winds.
Roots that get deflected by
things such as house foundations,


streets and sidewalks impact the
uniformity of the root system and.
thus decrease the tree's stability.
Deformed root systems can result
in unstable trees that can fall
over.
Growing a good root system
begins with buying a good plant.
Prior to purchasing, remove the
plant from its container and look
at its root system. A tree left in a
nursery container too long might
not develop roots on one entire
side of the tree after it is planted
in the landscape.
If you must plant a tree with
circling roots, these roots should
be cut aggressively with a shovel,
knife or pruning tool to prevent
them from girdling the tree later,
especially if they are near the top
of the root ball. Make three or
four slices an inch or two deep


r \

Horticulture Extension Agent,I

from the top of the root ball to the
bottom. If in doubt about whether
a root is large enough to cut, go
ahead and cut it. This will be best
for the tree in the long run.
Each year after planting, be
sure to inspect the tree's root
system. Gently pull away the
mulch and even some of the soil.
Look carefully for root defects
such as crossing or girdling roots
and kinked roots.
Certain species such as
magnolia, maple, hollies and others
appear especially susceptible to
root defects; however, any tree
can be affected by circling or
stem girdling roots.


Trees with roots that are
touching or circling the trunk
instead of growing straight away
from the trunk stress the tree by
reducing.or eliminating vascular
flow where the root contacts the
trunk. This stress increases with
time as the root grows in diameter.
Left uncorrected, girdling roots
can lead to dead spots on the
trunk and tree decline. Trunk
girdling, dead patches on the
trunk, and tree death could occur
when the defect is serious.
Some of this can be corrected
by removing the root defect, but
root removal also stresses the
tree. Stress from root removal
will only last for a relatively short
period and will decrease with
time as the tree recovers from
the loss of the root. Leaving the
root defect in place can increase


stress over time.
Guidelines for root
maintenance:
&If the root circles less than
of the trunk and is easy to get
to, remove it.
VIf the root circles less than
of the trunk but would be difficult
to remove without injuring the
trunk, then cut the root but don't
remove it.
/If a root covers a main root,
then cut or remove it.
If a root circles more than
of the trunk, remove the circling
root.
*VTaking care of a tree's root
system will ensure a stable tree.
Routine checking and correcting
minor defects when the tree is
young is easy and beneficial. Root
severing on mature trees may.
cause more harm than good.
