trooper said the pickup slid toward the right shoulder,
where the passenger's side of the vehicle hit a treeand
overturned several times, ejecting the driver onto the
shoulder of the road. The truck continued on until it
came to rest next to a tree.
The trooper said he was not sure of the speed Shuler
was traveling but estimated, "he was somewhere in the
70 mph range."
Apasting nlctoriskt ent lo.a nearby residence to call
for help after driving up on the scene and finding debris
in the road and seeing smoke from the wreckage.
Shuler, who suffered serious head injuries, was
found on the east shoulder of the road about 20 feet
from his truck.
He was transported to Tallahassee Memorial

she said. "We hope everyone will keep Oren in their
thoughts and prayers."

* Doesn't Dad a to state park fee schedule


TALLAHASSEE In order
to continue to provide high qual-
ity visitor services and afford-
able nature-based recreation, the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection's (DEP) Flor-
ida Park Service will implement
a modest fee increase beginning
Wednesday, July 1, in conjunc-
tion with the state's fiscal calen-
dar.
S"Florida's award-winning
state parks provide inexpensive,
high quality recreation in an un-
matched natural setting," said
DEP Deputy Secretary of Land
and Recreation Bob Ballard.
"This fee increase will help keep
Florida's state parks open for
residents and visitors to experi-
ence while still proving to be one
of the most affordable activities
in the state."
As the first fee update in five
years, additional state park user
fees will .supplement current
revenue sources used to main-
tain the state's valuable natural
and cultural resources within
Florida's 160 state parks. Nearly
half of the $81 million used to
operate the state park system is
raised from entrance and usage
fees. Some of the most common
fees that will change include:
*Day-use entrance fee for ve-
hicles with up to eight people:
average increase of$1 $3.
*Camping fees: average in-

state parks.

crease of $4 per night.
*Cabin rental fees: average
increase of $10 per night.
*Annual Pass: $60 for indi-
viduals and $120 for families up
to eight people.
The Florida Park Service
Annual Pass is good for day-
use entrance into Florida's state
parks and a 33 percent discount
for individual admission to Ho-
mosassa Springs Wildlife State
.Park, Skyway Fishing Pier State
Park and Weeki Wachee Springs
State Park.
"With state park attendance
breaking records and still on the
rise, we have heard overwhelm-
ing support to keep all state parks
open and available to the public,"
said Florida Park Service Direc-
tor Mike. Bullock. "Even with
this fee increase, it is comforting
to know a trip to a state park still
remains affordable. Last year,


more than 20 million visitors
enjoyed Florida's state parks for
just a few dollars, contributing
more than one billion dollars to
Florida's economy and creating
more than 20,000 jobs."
In addition to these increases,
the Florida Park Service will
lower the cost of admission at
Weeki Wachee Springs State
Park in Spring Hill to bring the
cost of admission down to rates
more consistent with Florida's
other state parks. The cost of
admission for an adult will de-
crease from $26.57 to $13 and
from $18.05 to $5 for children.
The first two-time Gold Med-
al winner honoring the nation's
best state park service, Florida's
state park system is one of the
largest in the country with 160
parks, which are open 365 days
a year.
Florida's state parks, .which
span more than 700,000 acres
and include more than 100 miles
of sandy white beach, provide
an affordable outing for people
of all ages. Caladesi Island State
Park, just off the coast of Pinel-
las County, was honored with
the coveted Best Beach in the
Nation award in 2008.
All additional fees will be
posted on the' Florida State
Parks Web site at www.flori-
dastateparks.org on July 1.

Government is not


Americans have always had a love-
hate relationship with their government.
It's in their genes to grump and complain
about most everything government does.
OK by me because the First Amendment
is alive and well. As I've written before,
American democracy is messy. There
has to be room for all viewpoints in
America's dialogue, particularly about
government.
Taxes. Just say the word and out come

* so the shotguns. Pay taxes, yikes. How could those thiev-
o ing politicians ask us citizens to pay taxes with our hard-
earned money? Hey Mr. Politician, I'm on a fixed income,
o e D and you want me to pay for goods and services like getting
the road paved, a park, street gutters or police protection.
Sound familiar?
All that is OK by me. People can grump, bitch and
whine as much as they like about government and taxes.
- It's the American way.
m What is disturbing to me is that many people have moved
-- past their right to state their views and are now comparing
0 government, particularly the federal government, to evil
forces like the Nazis or Communists.
Former President Reagan set the stage for the current
S unsavory political discourse when he stated, "government
is the problem." Politicians, talking heads and self-styled
S experts, particularly on the political right, are whooping up
S the troops with accusations that government is something
S to fear. In one of her recent speeches, Sarah Palin stated
that if states accepted stimulus money then the federal gov-
m e ernment would "control the people."
Government already controls the people. It's called the
Rule of Law. There are laws against killing each other, steal-
ing someone's truck, speeding through school zones...
There were twelve letters to the editor in my Sunday
paper. Ten of the letters were all anti-government rants.
They accused President Obama, the Congress and the fed-
eral government in general of being socialist and commu-
nist. One person wrote that President Obama is worse than
-- Chavez of Venezuela. Another person wrote that the Rus-
sian controlled news media called Pravda said that Presi-
dent Obama was to the left of his Russian counterpart.
Right-wing talk radio is a never-ending rant about evil
government. They describe the federal government as
something from outer space, something from science fic-
S tion, an evil force that will enslave us all.
P ) The government is us, you and me, all 300 million
of us. We all have a right to state our views. "We the
people..." the first three words of the Preamble to the
* .. Constitution establishes the principle of Popular Sov-
S- ereignty, which means that the people are the source of
all governmental power; however, that doesn't mean we


and Monk writes, "...and it says that the United States will
ensure that every state has a 'republican form of govern-
ment.'" A republican form of government is a representa-
tive form of government.
Monk writes "To the framers, a republic that consisted
of representative institutions was vastly superior to a de-
mocracy in which the people ruled directly-such as in an-
cient Greece, which the framers regarded as mob rule."
.Interestingly, the term "democracy" isn't mentioned in
the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. If
that's a problem for people, they should take it up with the
ghost of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.
The fact that the Obama administration is taking a di-
rect approach to resolving systemic problems in America's
government and marketplace has many people in a stew,
particularly on the right.
President Bush made the first donation to the automo-
bile industry, but that's a moot point. President Bush and
Secretary of the Treasury recognized that bolstering the
automobile industry was a first step in stabilizing the U.S.
economy. Mr. Bush also recognized that the U.S. financial
system was about to implode and started the process of
staving off financial disaster. Mr. Obama has continued the
process.
Most people don't understand the issues, and as
a result, terms like nationalizing the U.S. econo-
my and socializing the healthcare system are tossed
about by any and everyone whether they have a
clue about what they are saying or not. Blather.
The U.S. financial system has to be fixed. The U.S.
and all of us citizens cannot continue to spend enormous
amounts of borrowed money for healthcare, energy and
wars of convenience. Our government representatives
can fix these problems, if they have the backbone and will
"man up" and get on with it.
In my view, the hatred and animosity directed at any
and everything perceived as "government" has reached a
dangerous level. It's one thing to carp about the govern-
ment, but it's far more serious for a state governor speak of
seceding.from the United States. In my view, that's treason.

Less than 2 weeks are left to submit


stories for the Calhoun Heritage Book


by Lana. Weeks
There are only about three
weeks left to get your fam-.
ily and topical stories in to the
Calhoun County Heritage Book
Committee. Remember that the
deadline is June 30, 2009, and
this date will not be extended.
If you have not sent us anything
on your family, you need to get
busy with this!
Remember that one day one
ofyour children or grandchildren
or even your great-grandchildren
may pick up the book and won-
der why your.family is not men-
tioned in the book. Last Monday
when I.went to Wewahitchka to.
meet with the Senior Citizens
Club about the Gulf County
Book, my daughter picked up
the Jackson County Heritage
Book and looked through it,
and said, "Hey mom, why aren't
Granny and Grandpa and the rest
of the older generations not list-
ed in this book? They were very
much a part of Jackson County
history." All that I could tell her
was that I did not know anything
about the book at the time. Now
is your last chance to get your
family in the Calhoun County
Heritage Book so that this won't
happen to you.

Quota changes make hunting fairer r


Most hunters know
that the best time to catch
a monster buck off guard
is during the beginning of
hunting season. That's
why many of us enjoy
hunting the archery and
muzzleloading gun sea-


sons and why we can't miss
opening weekend of the gen-
eral gun season. After that, lots
of gunfire breaks out and those
big boys get nocturnal, making
Shunting more difficult.
If you plan to hunt on pub-
lic land next season, you've
probably heard that the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) made some
changes to its quota permit sys-
tem.
Phase I of the application
process for most hunt types has
been extended from a 10-day pe-
riod to a month, and takes place
June 1-30. During this period,
just like before, you may turn
in 6nly one worksheet for each
type of quota hunt. Remember:
Unless exempt, you must have
an up-to-date management area
permit when applying for a quo-
ta permit.
The old archery/muzzleload-
ing worksheet has been broken
into two separate worksheets
one for archery hunts and the
other for muzzleloader hunts.
There is a new wild hog work-
sheet, as well as the familiar
general gun worksheet. So you
now have the opportunity to re-
ceive four permits instead ofjust-
two.
All quota permit worksheets
are available at MyFWC.com/
Hunting by clicking under "Lim-
ited Entry Hunts" or at a tax col-
lector's office or license agent.
As before, you may fill in your
application with up to five hunt


choices. During phases I and II,
you may be drawn for no more
than one quota permit per hunt
type. During Phase III, you can
submit additional worksheets
and receive up to five quota per-
mits per hunt type.
Submit completed work-
sheets to any license agent or tax
collector's office. Those with
a valid Florida driver's license
can submit worksheets online at
www.wildlifelicense.com/fl.
The drawings to decide who
gets these coveted quota hunt
permits are July 7-17. Results
will be posted at MyFWC.com/
Hunting. Those selected will re-
ceive quota permits in the mail.
Others get a preference point
for next -year's drawing, which
improves the chance of being
selected. If you're unable to
use your quota permit, mail it
back to Tallahassee so it can be
reissued to someone else dur-
ing Phase III. If it was issued in
Phase I and it's postmarked prior
to the first day of the hunt, you'll
receive a preference point. Ac-
cumulated preference points un-
der the old system apply to the
new system.
Except for the Blackwa-
ter Wildlife Management Area
(WMA) dog hunts and Holton
Creek WMA mobility-impaired
hunts, all quota permits are
nontransferable. Only the per-
son named on the permit can
use it. This change makes the
quota system fairer by spread-
ing great hunting opportunities


out to more folks. If you
gave up on applying for
quota hunts because you
never drew the area you
wanted, I urge you to try
it this year.
There's a new guest
permit also. To many


folks and me it's more fun to
go hunting with a buddy, so the
FWC created a way for people to
bring a friend on a quota hunt.
For every quota permit (ex-
cluding Blackwater WMA dog
hunts and Holton Creek WMA
mobility-impaired hunts), one
nontransferable guest permit
may be obtained, until the last
day of the hunt, at tax collectors'
offices or.license agents; use the
quota permit holder's customer
ID number and hunt number.
The guest must have a valid
management area permit (unless
exempt) and all other necessary
permits and license for the spe-
cific hunt.
Some stipulations: Both per-
mit holder and guest must en-
ter and exit the WMA together,
share the same vehicle and share
a single person's bag limit. The
guest may hunt only when the
quota permit holder is on the
area. On WMAs that have zone
tags, the permit holder and guest
must hunt in the same zone.
On 37 of the WMAs, there's a
bag limit of one deer, so I suggest
Syou and your guest set your cell
phones on vibrate and text your
buddy when you shoot a deer.
That way, he'll know you've
filled the bag limit. In places
without a signal, you could use
inexpensive two-way radios to
let each other know you got one.
If you'd like to apply for one
or more of the FWC's many fall
quota hunt permits, you need to
do so in June.


Shoreline anglers must buy license by Aug. 1


Florida's resident saltwater
anglers who fish from shore or
a structure affixed to shore-will
need to buy a $7.50 (plus ad-
ministrative and handling fees)
shoreline fishing license by Aug.
1, unless they have a regular res-
ident saltwater fishing license.
The new license applies only
to Florida resident saltwater
anglers who fish from shore.
Resident anglers may prefer to
purchase the regular recreation-
al saltwater license that covers
them, no matter where they fish
for saltwater species in Florida. .
. Florida has always required
nonresidents to have a license
when fishing from shore, and
they will still need to purchase
a regular nonresident saltwater
fishing license.
The new shoreline saltwater
fishing license for residents goes
on sale July 15. It provides all of
the same exemptions as a regu-
lar license, including senior citi-
zens, children, disabled people
who meet certain qualifications,
active-duty military personnel
while home on leave, and an-
glers who fish from a licensed


pier. In addition, the shoreline
license requirement includes
two new exemptions: anglers
drawing food stamps, temporary
cash assistance or Medicaid; and
anglers fishing in their home
counties who use cane poles or
other gear that does not depend
on mechanical retrieval.
At the request of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), the Florida
Legislature passed the new li-
cense requirement to head off a
federal license requirement that
will go into effect Jan. 1, 2010,
and will have a $15-$25 fee be-
ginning ih 2011. Florida's new
shoreline license exempts this
state's anglers from the federal
license requirement.
Several hunting, fishing and


conservation organizations re-
quested other permit fee chang-
es, which do not take effect until
July 2010. They include increas-
es in the state waterfowl stamp,
from the current $3 to $5; in the
resident turkey permit, from $5
to $10; the nonresident turkey
permit, from $100 to $125; the
wildlife management area per-
mit for hunting, fishing and oth-
er recreational uses, from $25 to
$30; the limited-entry or special-
opportunity hunt fee, from $100
per day to $150 per day and-$250
per week to $300 per week, as
determined by FWC Commis-
sioners; the snook permit, from
$2 to $10; and the lobster permit,
from $2 to $5.
Also, new laws create a $5
annual deer permit (in addition
to the current hunting license re-
quirement for deer hunters) and
allow the agency to charge up to
$5 per day for non-hunting and
non-fishing recreation on certain
wildlife management areas.
The FWC will evaluate areas
where it is the lead manager to
determine where to charge the
fees and how much to charge.

Waste Pro and FWC partner to

keep bears away from garbage


Keeping garbage out of the
paws of bears has just gotten
a little easier for some folks
in Franklin County in the Pan-
handle, thanks to Waste Pro,
a little grant money and con-
cerned residents. The Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
Stion Commission (FWC) hopes
this initial effort becomes the
model for other communities
throughout the state where hu-
mans live in close proximity to
bear habitat and other wildlife.
In 2008, the FWC received
more than 2,700 calls concern-
ing bears; 34 percent of those
reported bears getting into gar-
bage. In Franklin-County, al-
most half of the calls reported
bears in garbage.
"The high percentage of
calls involving garbage illus-
trates an opportunity to work
closely with waste-service
providers, residents and local
governments to reduce con-
flicts that result from bears
coming into neighborhoods,"

said Dave Telesco, the FWC's
bear management program co-
ordinator. "Unsecured garbage
attracts feral cats and dogs, rac-
coons, foxes, opossums, bears
and other wildlife. Securing
garbage in wildlife-resistant
containers can go a long way
toward preventing wildlife
from trashing your yard."
The FWC works to educate
the public about the dangers of
leaving garbage and other at-
tractants unsecured and urges

residents to keep garbage se-
cured so wildlife does not have
the opportunity to feast on left-
overs.
While wildlife-resistant
containers are an excellent tool
in reducing conflicts, the cans
are expensive, and they are
often not available for indi-
vidual purchase. It falls to the
waste-service provider to take
on those extra costs to offer
some relief to their customers.
Waste Pro voluntarily ordered
the wildlife-resistant cans and
began distributing them to in-
terested residents in Franklin
County on June 1.
Because of the added costs
for these containers, Waste Pro
is charging $5 per month in ad-
dition to the regular monthly
service charge. The FWC's
bear management program
partnered with Waste Pro to
help offset the additional costs
to residents. With funds from a
grant from the Wildlife Foun-
dation of Florida, the FWC
gave $6,000 to Waste Pro to
allow the first 200 customers
who sign up for-the wildlife-
resistant containers to have the
cans serviced without the ad-
ditional charge for the first six
months.
"We've made an investment
in this community to help them
with their bear problems," said
Ralph Mills, regional vice
president of Waste Pro. "We're
pleased we can work with the
FWC and our customers to
provide the tools they need to
deal with the situation."
Habitat loss threatens Flori-
da's wildlife, and, as a result, it
is now common for black bears
to appear in residential neigh-
borhoods where food is easy to
get. Residents face a two-fold
problem: They are responsible
for cleaning up the mess made
by the wildlife, and they face
close encounters with.wild ani-
mals.
People can minimize or
eliminate .these problems by
securing attractants such as
garbage in wildlife-resistant
containers and by removing or
cleaning up other attractants
in the yard. If followed, these
simple changes can be success-
ful in protecting the health of
Florida's diverse wildlife and
its residents.
The FWC is working with
waste-service providers, such
as Waste Pro, across the state to
implement cost-effective solu-
tions to this shared problem.

life-resistant containers dnd to

Dear Mama.
We're sending you hugs on
angel wings, so many for
you to hold, we'll blow some
kisses in the gentle breeze
with some tears on sad days
like these. The angels are
bringing you red roses, your
favorite, we picked them just
for you. One from each one
of us. Your memory is our
keepsake and you were al-
ways the rock of our family. It broke our hearts to lose you.
but you didn't go alone, part of us went with you. If loving you
would have saved you, you would have never died. We keep
you in our hearts and God has you in his safe keeping. God
broke our hearts that day to prove he only takes the best. But
God sent our family new little angels to help heal our broken
hearts. Our little angels will live through you Mama. We will
always remember what a wonderful mom you were and try to
be the same just like your mom was and hers too. We come
from a long line of devoted mothers. "Family is forever", you
taught us that. I guess it's true what people say., 'One's life
can be measured by those they leave behind.'

Tips on growing tasty tomatoes in the South


by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County


The mention of home grown
tomatoes will make a gardener's
mouth water. But growing
tomatoes in the heat and
humidity along the Gulf Coast
can be a challenge. Summer
can be a tough time for tomatoes
to set and hold fruit. The heat
causes irregular flower growth
in most cultivars, and the result
is. poor fruit set. Some tomato
cultivars are now available that
have genetics to beat the heat,
but they still won't do miracles.
So here are a few tips to make
your tomato harvest even more
satisfying.
First, be sure to control
the pests. Many worms love
tomatoes as much as gardeners.
The tomato-horn worm is that
giant, green caterpillar that
devours tomato leaves, while the
tomato fruit worm bores into the
fruit. A biological product called
B.t. (Dipel,. Thuricide) can be


used for control.
Stink bugs will
pierce the fruit and
leave pin-sized
puncture wounds
that result in white
dots or specks on the
tomato. These insects
can be very difficult
to control. 'Contact
your local Extension
Office for current
recommendations. .
Second, water- -.
Tp r opri ate lyo On-tomatos, blossom-end rot usually begins as a small water-

to soil needs. Water
so that root zones are neither
too soggy nor too dry. Morning
watering is thought to keep roots
cooler and plants less stressed.
Remember to step up the
volume and frequency of
supplemental irrigation as plants
load up with fruit. There is a
sudden demand for more water
as fruit enlargement occurs
and if the extra soil moisture
requirement is not met, then


blossom-end rot can ruin your
crop.
Blossom-end rot is a
nutritional disorder. Too little
available calcium, too much
or too little water and severe
pruning-favor its development.
This can be corrected to some
degree by watering consistently.
Spraying the plant with a solution
of calcium -chloride may also


be helpful.
Spray
according
to product
labels.
Third,
mulch plants
well to cool
roots and
even out soil
moisture.
Research
indicates
that a white
or light-
colored
mulch is
much better


-than the
black plastic that works so
well on spring tomatoes. Dark
mulches get too hot in the
summer.
Fourth, apply a tomato
fungicide on a regular basis
to extend the season. For best
results, a fungicide program
should be started before serious
disease symptoms are present.
One that contains mancozeb
(Dithane, Manzate) or


chlorothalonil (Qrtho MaxTM
Garden Disease Control, Ferti-
lomeBroad SpectrumLandscape
& Garden Fungicide) can help
to control the fungal blights,
while copper sprays can be
included for help in controlling
bacterial spot.
Fifth, harvest when the tomato
is ripe to ensure maximum
flavor. The color should be
even and bright red. The tomato
should be finr but yield slightly
to pressure.
Never refrigerate your
tomatoes. -Refrigeration will
result in less flavor and firmness.
Keep the tomatoes out of direct
sunlight and store with the
stem-up to prevent bruised
shoulders.
So enjoy your home-grown
tomatoes as long as you can.
And if the plants don't make
it through the heat of the next
several months, be sureto plan for
a fall-planting in August. If you
have trouble finding the cultivars
you want, get into the habit of
starting your own from seed a
month or two ahead of time.

June 27-July 3 proclaimed Dive Flag Awareness Week


In the past five years, 22
divers in Florida's waters
have been killed or injured af-
ter a boat struck them. Many
of these incidents could have
been avoided had the boaters
been on the lookout for div-
ers-down flags, or if the div-
ers had properly displayed the
dive flags to alert-boaters to
their presence.
Gov. Charlie Crist and the
Florida Cabinet passed a res-
olution proclaiming June 27
- July 3 as Dive Flag Aware-
ness Week.
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC), the U.S. Coast
Guard and their marine law
enforcement partners support
the resolution.
Lt. David Bingham, an
FWC watch commander sta-
tioned in -south Florida, be-
came very familiar with div-
ing dangers after investigating,
several injuries and fatalities.
"Tens of thousands of resi-
dents and visitors enjoy the


great snorkeling and diving
opportunities Florida has to
offer," Bingham said: "Obvi-
ously, divers don't want to be

Least 12 inches by 12 inches.
It must have a wire or other
stiffener to hold it open.
Divers and snorkelers must


"'~ -i

....; -*a.~-s~

~-J~BB~-=


make every reasonable ef-
fort to stay close to their flag.
When they exit the water, the
divers-down flag must be tak-
en down.
"It is imperative that div-
ers and snorkelers remove the
divers-down flag once they
are out of the water or, other-
wise, the presence of the flag
becomes meaningless to boat-
ers," Bingham said. "The dis-
play of the flag should never
be used for any other reason
than what it is intended to
indicate there are persons in
the water. Using it for any
other reason is dangerous and
unlawful."
All vessels must make a
reasonable effort to stay at
least 100 feet away from a
divers-down .flag within a
river, inlet or channel In open
waters, vessels must make a
reasonable effort to stay 300
feet away from a divers-down
flag. Within those prescribed
distances, a vessel may oper-
ate but must be at idle speed.
S"With bay scallop and spiny
lobster season just around the
corer, the FWC, our marine
law enforcement partners,
the governor and the cabinet
members really want to em-
phasize the importance of en-
gaging all safety precautions,
including the use of divers-
down flags," Bingham said.
"If you're diving, display a
flag. If you're boating, look
for the flag."

SSTflR-


SCOPE*

Week ofJune 14
to June 20

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, take your time
making a decision this week.
If you go the wrong way it
could come back to haunt
Syou a few months from now.
Sagittarius is around for
some sound advice.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Taurus, financial worries
begin to blow over this week
-as you start to realize you're
in better shape than you
initially thought. Just don't
become a spendthrift.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Gemini, this is the week
for romance-, and your
special someone is looking
forward to some one-on-one
time. If you're not in a
relationship, now is the
time to find that mate.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
This is your birthday month,
Cancer, so now is the time
to make it that much more
Special. All of those plans
you've put on hold should be
begun in the next few days.

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Leo, it's become almost quiet
at home and you're starting to
wonder if it is the calm before
the storm. Stop worrying and
enjoy the respite while it lasts.

VIRGO --Aug 24/Sept 22
Sometimes you let others
know a little too much
about yourself, Virgo. While
it's good to be honest, you
don't have to put all of your
vulnerabilities on for show.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, a disagreement with '
a loved one puts you in a
.funk for a few days. It'll be
up to you.to pull yourself out
of it, though. Don't expect
too much pity on the part of
others.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, it's good to look
forward to a break, even for
a work-a-holic like you. Don't
feel guilty about taking some
much needed time off and
enjoy the summer.

SAGITTARIUS -
Nov 23/Dec 21
Does it seem like others
are avoiding you, Sagittarius?
It very well may be true if
you've been acting foolishly.
Change your tune and more
people will be likely to visit.

CAPRICORN -
Dec22/Jan 20
It's hard to erase things
you've said in the past,
Capricorn. But even some of
the worst words can be
forgotten, provided you
apologize for your actions.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Without patience, you'll
never make it through the
next few days, Aquarius.
Unexpected situations pop up
just when you are looking for
a little rest and relaxation.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
Pisces, though you may
have far-off adventures
on the brain, chores and
household tasks will fill
the hours this week.

Liberty County's own Altar of Gold

places first at Delta Downs May 14


Liberty County residents and
owners of J & JW Racing Farm
recently had one of their own
fillies to place first in a race at
Delta Downs in Vinton, LA on
May 14.
Altar of Gold, a two-year-old
filly, had 16-1 odds against her
in a field often horses. In a race
the length of 330 yards, Altar of
Gold won by a half a length.
Altar of Gold comes from a
lineage of winners. Her father,
placed third in the Alabama Fu-
turity in 1997 after having the
second fastest time to qualify


and a woman she could only
identify as Crystal, began attempts
to get the little girl to breathe.
Miley Williams, 33, ofTelogia,
was on the opposite side of
the lake when he heard people
.yelling. Above the noise, he heard
one very distinct voice that
of his mother, Wynell Williams.
"She screamed my name. I could
-hear by the tone in her voice that
something was wrong," he said.
He ran around the lake to find
people gathered around the little
girl, who was on the ground. One
woman who was trying to attend
to the child admitted she didn't
know CPR but was "trying to
do what she had seen on t.v.,"
Williams said.
Williams, who is a trained
First Responder, said, "I gave
her several breaths, checked her
pulse and realized her chest was
not rising and her lungs must be
full of water."
He turned her over and raked
slime out of her mouth before she
began coughing out water. "She
was trying to gasp, for air," he
said. He stayed withthe little girl,
talking to her, in an effort to calm
her as he monitored her pulse.
He said she resumedbreathing
quickly, but "It seemed like an
eternity." During that time, he
said she suffered two seizures.
Her frantic mother, Ericka
Bess, knelt down to comfort the
little girl as Williams continued
his efforts.
SHe said Jada was taking "very
shallow and sporadic breaths" by


for this race which only allowed
the field of the ten fastest hors-
es. Her grandfather, Special
Task, earned over $260,000 in
his lifetime of racing and her
great-grandfather, Special Effort
won over a million dollars in his
lifetime of racing. She has five
champions in her blood-line.
To prepare for this race, Altar
of Gold was taken to a profes-
sional trainer in Mobile, AL on
February 21. Kenneth Weeks,
her trainer commented that "for
her first outing she did pretty
good."


the time an ambulance arrived.
She was then transported by
Calhoun EMS to a landing
site where she-was put on an
emergency helicopter and flownto
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
Jada remained in ICU until
Monday, where she was moved
to the pediatric ward. Her mother
said Jada is expected to return
home Tuesday.
Between 150 and 200 people
were at Camel Lake that day. "If


Altar of Gold, is owned by J
& JW Racing Farm located in
the Sweetwater Community of
Liberty County, where she was
also born.
Owners of J &. JW Racing
Farm commented that they are
real proud of her success having
come from a small town with big
odds. The race that she won can
be viewed on the web at www.
deltadowns.com on the date of
May 14, Race-One. Altar of
Gold will be running in several
more races at Delta Downs in
the coming months.


somebody hadn't been there that
knew CPR, she wouldn't have
made it," said Williams, who said
he received his training through
a course given by the Florida
Highway Patrol two years ago.
Jada's grandmother, Bobbi
Bess, said if no one had been
there to administer CPR, "I
truly believe I would have lost
my granddaughter," adding that
the people who helped -were all
heros.
