Suspect sought for


attempted murder


wrecks in Clarksville


by Teresa Eubanks,
Journal Editor
A former Quincy
Police Officer wanted
for attempted first degree
murder was injured in a
single-vehicle accident
Tuesday morning in
Clarksville and will go
to jail after he is released
from the hospital.
Ted Smith Jr., 47, was
airlifted to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital with
apparent chest trauma
and broken ribs after
the 8:20 a.m. crash on


S.R. 73, about one mile
north of C.R. 392. As of Tuesday afternoon,
he remained in intensive care.
Smith, who worked as a police officer in
the mid-1990s, drove a van into his estranged
wife's bedroom around 1:40 a.m. Monday,
then got out and tried to choke her, according
to Investigator Scott Ivey of the Gadsden
County Sheriff's Office. When his wife
got away from him, Smith left in a second
vehicle and managed to elude capture until
the wreck.
"He immediately left Gadsden County and
we've been hunting for him in every possible
nook and cranny," said Ivey.
Smith was driving north on S.R. 73 when
he fell asleep. The 2000 Ford Explorer

filling the trailer. She ran out the back door and called
911.
When rescuers broke through the locked front door,
they found 63-year-old Robert Edward Combs lying on
the Boor of the living room. He was just two or three feet
from the front door.
The fire burned his legs, back and stomach, covering
35% of his body.

campsite around &:45 a.m. June
19, the group saw Hobbs and
Hernandez loading up their tent
- in the pack of Hobbs' pickup.
Bryant said they were able
to identify the two men because
they had previously been around
the children at the landing and
knew them,
Bryant stated that the men
fled in Hobbs' truck when she
confronted them.
She followed in her own vehi-


cle and said she saw them throw-
ing the tent and other property
taken from their camping site
from their truck before they ar-
rived at Hobbs' residence on
Skyline Drive.
Among the missing items was
her daughter's purse, which she
said contained $1,500 in cash.
During an interview with a
deputy, Hobbs initially denied
his involvement and later stated
he just drove the truck for Her-
nandez, who loaded up the tent.
Hemandez stated that they
both took the tent after stacking
up its contents which included
clothes, bedding and a grill out-
side.
The owner found the tent on
Lake McKenzie Blvd., where
tent poles were scattered for
about a quarter of a mile, No
other property was recovered.
Hemandez has been a suspect
in several burglaries and thefts
in the area, according to the dep-
uty's report.
The men were charged with
petty theft for taking the tent,
which was valued at under $200,
and charged with criminal mis-
chief for damaging the tent. They
were also charged with grand
theft for the loss of the purse and
$1,500 in cash.


Son charged with theft, forgery

An alert teller at Calhoun-Liberty Credit Union foiled a
forgery attempt after noticing a suspicious signature on a check
made out for $250 earlier this month.


Twenty-two-year-old Billy Joe "Trey" Wood HI attempted
to cash the check but was not allowed to do, so after the teller
compared the signature with one on file for his father, Billy Joe
Jr. on July 9.

Wood to wait and she took the check to her manager. Wood
then walked out of the build-
ing and did not attempt to s

Search & Rescue teams stay busy

Monday and Tuesday in Liberty Co.


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A teenage boy who got
lost after he walked away
from a family fish camp was
found after a four-hour search
Monday, according to Rudy
Sumner of the Liberty County
Search and Rescue Team.
The boy walked off
following a dispute during a
visit to their camp at River
Stix. "We thought he was
going to cool off but he didn't
come back," said Judy Hall
of her 16-year-old foster son.
Norman Hall believed the boy.
had caught a ride back to their
home in Bristol with his older
son and was surprised when
he realized the youth was not
there.
Sumner said they found the
teen about 13 miles from the
camp, walking along Hwy.
12 about two miles west of
Wilma.
Eleven search volunteers
'began looking for the missing
boy around 6 p.m., joined
by a dog tracking team from
Liberty Correctional Institute
and members of the Liberty
County Sheriff's Department.
It wasn't an easy task. "He'
hadn't stuck to the road and
had criss-crossed through the
woods," said Hall.
"We found his shoe print on
F.H. 113 and tracked him at
least 10 miles," Sumner said.
"We were searching every
road." He said Billy Evans
drove up on the youth around
10 p.m.
"He said he was tired, his
legs hurt and he was hungry,"
said Hall of the boy who

promptly downed three plates
of food when he returned
home.
The Halls credit searchers
and the efforts of deputies for
catching up with the missing
youth before something
happened to him. "They acted
very quickly," said Hall.
"We really want to thank the
searchers, the, dog team and
Sgt. Brian Bateman and Deputy
Caryl Marotta," she said.
Searchers were called out
again Tuesday morning, this
time to look for a man and
his three daughters who were
taking two canoes down the
Ochlockonee River.
A miscommunication
between the man and his wife


had left her thinking the group
was overdue, according to
Sumner. She was expecting
them back Monday evening;
he said their plans were to
return Tuesday evening.
The four entered the river
fromHwy. 20 inLiberty County
with plans to travel about 30
miles to Revell Landing.
The family was found three
miles below an area known
as The Cave-In, about 15
miles from their destination,
.according to Sumner.
"We just had to find them
and make sure they were O.K.,"
he said. Searchers began their
efforts at 6 a.m. and continued
through 11 a.m. before the
family was located.

Volunteers sought to help at annual Family Affair


The Family Affair Committee
met to finalize plans for the Aug.
1 event. Please note that the
committee voted to back up the
start time of the event to 8 a.m
and conclude it at 11 a.m. (CT).
The school supplies will be
bagged starting at 10 a.m. on
Friday, July 31.
General setup for booths will
be 2-4 p.m. on Friday or 7 a.m.
on Saturday. Please have your
booth ready to go by 8 a.m. when
the doors open August 1.
This was decided by the com-


* mittee due to the oppressive heat
and due to the fact that we have
had people lined up at the door
before 7 a.m. in previous years.
We need volunteers to be
at the Civic Center at 7 a.m. to
blow up balloons to decorate for
the event. We also need volun-
teers to man the events that are
outside, the slide, moon walk,
train, etc. We need face paint-
ers (we have one, but can always
use more). We desperately need
bags to put the supplies in for
the children, if you have bags


that your agency can donate,
we would appreciate it and it
is a great way to promote your
agency!
If you are planning on making
a monetary donation, please let
us know ASAP. Our budget is
very limited.
If any business or agency
would like to sponsor one of the
activities, please call Tammy at
643-2415 ext. 247 or Peggy at
ext. 227.
Food this year will include
snow cones and popcorn.

Robert McNamara's legacy


Robert Strange McNamara, former
U.S. Secretary of Defense, died on 0)
July 6 at the age of 93. Many people 0
reviled McNamara for his role as ar-
chitect of-the Vietnam War. McNa- Jerry Cox is a
mara's death opened old wounds and officerandwriter
brought back painful memories for background in
the families of thousands of Ameri- foreign plicyis
^kaloosa Count
cans killed during the Vietnam War.osaCoun
McNamara had a profound effect
on U.S. foreign policy, but unlike
other national figures who have subjected the U.S. to di-
sastrous foreign and domestic policies, McNamara apol-
ogized to the American people for his and President Lyn-
don Johnson's misjudgments about the war in Vietnam.
In his attempt to explain, McNamara wrote a mea
culpa book published in 1995.titled, "In Retrospect: The
Tragedy and Lessons of Vietnam." I read the book.
In 2005, McNamara published a book titled, "The
Fog of War." Errol Morris produced a documentary
with the same name. In the documentary, McNamara
explained the rationale for the Vietnam War and his mis-
givings about the outcome of the war. McNamara told
President Johnson that the war in Vietnam could not be
won militarily. Johnson didn't want to hear that, and Mc-
Namara was replaced as Secretary of Defense in Febru-
ary 1968.
I read McNamara's books, watched The Fog of War
documentary and watched interviews, the most probing
occurring with Charlie Rose on PBS.
America's involvement in Vietnam began in the
1950s during the Eisenhower administration. The world
was recovering from WWII, the Soviet Union had occu-
pied most of Eastern' Europe creating the Warsaw Pact to
counter the'North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)
charged with defending Western Europe.
Historically, the fear of Communism and despotic
world leaders has been a major force in shaping Amer-
ica's foreign policy. This fear was condensed into the
slogan, "The Domino Effect," meaning that if Vietnam
fell to the communist led by Ho Chi Minh then all of
the Southeast Asian countries would be communist con-
trolled. The U.S wasn't going to let the Soviet Union and
the Chinese Communist rule big chunks of the world,
and the Cold War and Vietnam War were under way.
McNamara did his best to win the war, but wars are
unpredictable. The US. tried to win their hearts and
minds, but with little success. The U.S. propped up a


R

Wi
C


variety of corrupt governments in South
'S Vietnam.
SNER I was in this war. We never stopped
the flow of supplies from North Vietnam
retired military into South Vietnam. We bombed the Ho
than extensive Chi.Minh trail day and night. I would
domestic and bomb a road in the morning, but when
es. He lives in returned in the afternoon, the damage
was repaired. The North Vietnamese sta-
tioned repair crews along the myriad of
roads loosely termed the Ho Chi Minh
trail. When the smoke from an attack cleared, the repair
crews were shoveling dirt.
In August 1964, the Gulf of Tokin event allegedly oc-
curred. The U.S. Navy thought that one of their ships was
attacked by the North Vietnamese. History has proven
that no such attack occurred. However, that didn't mat-
ter. President Johnson used this non-event to gain con--
sent from Congress to wage full-scale war against North
Vietnam. The same thing happened when the Congress
gave President George W; Bush authorization to wage
war after the 9/11 attack. In my view, Congress should
never give a president 100% authority to wage a war of
his choosing, but too late.
In retaliation for the alleged Gulf of Tonkin incident,
President Johnson authorized an air war against North
Vietnam, termed Rolling Thunder. U.S. airpower at-
tacks failed to sway the North Vietnamese until Decem-
ber 1972 when the B-52 bombers leveled large areas of
Hanoi during operation Linebacker II. Then the North
Vietnamese were willing to come to terms on ending the
war.
McNamara's apologies were ignored. No one cared.
But subsequent administrations also ignored the lessons
of Viefnam, particularly the most recent Bush adminis-
tration.
The Iraq and Afghanistan Wars are going to be with
us for a long time. We've turned Iraq into a pile of rub-
ble. The Iraqis are in charge now, but the U.S. still has
130,000 troops in country. There is a Status of Forces
Agreement (SOFA) that means U.S. troops will be in
Iraq for years to come, as is the case of South Korea.
The headlines for the war in Afghanistan read like the
headlines from the Vietnam War. We kill some of them,
they kill some of us, and the administration says that
there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
President Obama should pay heed to McNamara's
lessons of the Vietnam War, but he won't.

JULY 15, 2009 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9


We just bought an old house
and will be doing some interior
painting. How do we know which'
finish to use? -E. A., Snyder,
Tex.
To some extent, it's a matter
of personal preference. There are
some-tips'and precautions-to keep
in mind, however. First, try to
use the same type of paint that is
already there, latex (water-based
paint) over latex, for instance,
or alkyd (oil-based) over alkyd.
If you're not sure what you've
got, apply a primer of the same
type of paint that you want to
use. Primer is also a good start
over bare wallboard or plaster,
wallpapered surfaces, orwood. If
you are going from a darker color
to a much lighter one or from
a glossy surface to a flat one, a
primer coat is advised. In general,
latex paints are the practical
choice for interiors because of
the ease of cleanup.
As for the types of finish, you
have some choices: flat (or matte),
eggshell (also called flat enamel
or satin), semi-gloss, and gloss.
Flatpaints are commonly chosen
for ceilings ortfor living rooms,
dining rooms, or bedrooms. They
can notbe successfully scrubbed
clean, so in a child's room you
might want to choose a semi-
gloss, which is much easier to
wipe off.Eggshell finishes have

only a very slight shine to them,
like their namesake. They are the
preferred choice for rooms where
you want more durability and
stain resistance than a flat paint.
Semi-gloss paints are perhaps
the most common choice for
woodwork, children's rooms,
kitchens, bathrooms, entryways,
and stairways, because they are
so much easier to clean, but they
don't have the high sheen of a
gloss paint. Gloss is the most
durable of all, but it has a shiny,
reflective finish, which some
homeowners don't like. Gloss
paints are often seen on kitchen
cabinets or woodwork.
Is there any truth to the story
thatfarmers used to feed lobsters
to pigs? -G. L., Denver, Colo.
It's true, as hard as it may be to
believe. The practice came from
a time when lobsters were so
plentiful in New England that it
was not unusual to find dozens of
them washed up on shore after a
big storm at sea. Lobster was used


for chowders, casseroles, stuffed
seafood dinners, and the like, and
any leftovers would be given to
the pigs the next morning. With
today's lobster prices, we might
liken it to "casting pearls before
swine," but in its time, it was
cheaper than buying grain.
Similarly, it was common to
feed caviar to pigs, before people
realized that the fish eggs found in
their "poor man's diet" of sturgeon
were the same expensive roe that
was imported from Russia. At one
time, sturgeon ranged from the St.
Lawrence River south to Mexico.
By the 19th century, American
sturgeon (Acipenser sturio) was
Beginning to find its place on
gourmet menus, and the roe was
being salted and packed as caviar.
A good-size fish might weigh in
with up to sixty pounds of roe.
Previously, the roe had been used
as bait for eels and perch, and for
adding to common compost in the
backyard. Imagine how valuable
that "caviar soil" would make

responsible for the success of
evaporated milk, which became
widely known and appreciated
for its value to the military. Aside
from his work as a dairyman,
.Borden also worked as a farmer, a
newspaperman, and as a surveyor
in Mississippi and Texas.
In addition to developing a
process to concentrate milk,
Gail Borden also developed
a technique to condense fruit
juices. Then, of course,. he
developed the "meat biscuit,"
which was credited with helping
to open the western frontier in the
United States because of its easy
portability.

rest on its roof.
Moments before the accident, Smith
flew past Shaun Burke of Marianna who
was in the southbound lane. "He was kind
of riding the yellow line," said Burke.
"I slol'ed down and watched him in the
mirror. I stopped when I saw his truck fly
up in the air. It flipped end-over-end about
eight or nine times." he said. Burke, who
was taking his-mother and sister to Mexico
Beach, then called 911 and turned around
to help Smith.
"He crawled out of the truck but didn't
make it far before he fell over," Burke said.
"We werejust trying to keep him conscious
and talking," he said, adding that Smith
mentioned that he was running from law
enforcement.
When FHP Trooper Wes Harsey arrived
at the scene, Smith stated, "I know y'all
are after me. I been running all night and
fell asleep."
* * *

In addition to attempted murder, Smith
is wanted for violation of an injunction
and felony criminal mischief. A:judge has
ordered that he be held without bond.
Investigator Ivey gave the following
account of the incident:


Smith, who was staying at an apartment
in Midway, called hig wife at around 12:30
a.m. Monday.
Around 1:40 a.m., he arrived at the
Quincy home they once shared on Lake
Laurie Circle and drove his 1997 white
Ford van through the wall of the master
bedroom.
The van stopped less than a foot away
from the bed where his wife, Kristi Smith,
was sleeping.
The impact catapulted a dresser across
the room and onto the bed. "The dresser
just bounced right next to her. If it had
hit her, it would have killed her," the
investigator said.
Smith then backed the van out of the
bedroom and parked it a few feet from
where it first hit the wall.
He then got out of the van and chased
his wife into the living room, where he
grabbed her and began to choke her. She
broke loose and ran into the garage area.
He followed her and then got into the blue
Ford Explorer, which crashed the next
morning in Calhoun County.
Remarkably, Smith's wife had only
minor injuries. The couple's two teenage
daughters who were also home at the time
were not hurt.

FWC Law Enforcement Field Operations-
WEEKLY REPORT for June 26 July 2
This report represents some events the FWC handled; however it does
not include all actions taken by the Division ofLaw Enforcement.
LIBERTY COUNTY Officer Hank Forehand was on land patrol
in the Apalachicola Wildlife Management Area. He was on Forest
Road 115 in the area of Sheppard's Slough when he observed a green
Chevy truck parked at the entrance of the slough. Tire sign indicated
an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) had been unloaded. The ATV tracks
led from the vehicle down a dim road in the direction of the slough.
He.did not see anyone in the immediate area, so Officer Forehand
continued down the road to White Oak Landing and then returned to
the Sheppard's;Slough area. At the entrance of the slough, he found
that the truck had left. He continued down Forest Road 115 when he
spotted the Chevy truck, occupied with three individuals.
SThe individuals had been fishing and each had a cooler containing
freshwater pan fish in the bed of the truck. A freshwater fisheries
inspection found one cooler to be substantially over the bag limit of
pan fish. The individual had 65 pan fish in his possession. Officer
Forehand explained that the daily bag limit of pan fish was 50 and
that he was .15 fish over the limit. A citation was issued for being
over the bag limit of pan fish.

A woman in Lehigh Acres
in Lee County had a surprise
Monday morning when she en-
countered a black bear outside
of her work. Del Bagwell told
officers with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) she was work-
ing at Country Cleaners in the
Sunshine Plaza when she went
outside at approximately 7:20
a.m. A black bear came running
around the corer of the building
and bumped into her.
"She was not knocked to thd
ground or injured," said FWC
Officer Joanne Adams. "She
said she looked at the bear, and
the bear looked at her. Then she
raised her arms and backed up
slowly to the store door."
Bagwell then went inside the
store and the bear ran off, Adams
said. -
."Ms. Bagwell did the right
thing," said Dave Telesco, FWC
Bear Management Program co-
ordinator. "She did not panic or
run; she backed away slowly,
giving the bear a clear escape
route to run away."


Seeing a bear in unfamiliar
surroundings can be a surpris-
ing phenomenon. Even though
the Florida black.bear has in-
creased in population in the past
few decades, it is still considered
a threatened species in Florida.
As development encroaches on
its habitat, it is not unusual for
bears to be seen near human
populations, but it is highly un-
usual for humans to come face-
to-face with a bear.
However, if you do encounter
a black bear at close range, take
the following precautions: Re-
main standing straight up; back
up slowly; speak in a calm, as-
sertivevoice; do not run or-play
dead; and leave the bear a clear
escape route.


Summer is a very active time
for bears. They are searching for
a variety of fruits and other sea-
sonal foods that grow through-
out their range. Summer is also
breeding season, when bears
search far and wide for iates.
Also, in late summer, juvenile
bears disperse from their moth-
er's home range and look for new
habitat. All of those factors can
bring bears into populated areas
where they normally would not
venture.
When wildlife appears in
residential communities, the
FWC urges residents to remove
or secure anything that might at-
tract animals, such as garbage
cans, pet food, birdseed, out-
door grills and compost bins. If
a bear continues to come into
an area after all attractants have
been removed and creates prob-
lems for residents, then the FWC
will consider trapping the bear.
Capturing bears is an option in
circumstances where bears are
causing a conflict or there is a
safety risk.
Residents may call any FWC
regional office, if they have any
questions about bears, or they
may call the FWC's Wildlife
Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922
to report wildlife conflicts.


Shoreline fishing license

requirement starts Aug. 1


SFlorida's new shoreline fish-
ing license requirement takes
effect Aug. 1. Resident anglers
who fish for saltwater species
from shore or a structure affixed
to shore must have a $9 shoreline
fishing license or a $17 regular
saltwater fishing license.
Nonresident anglers need a
regular nonresident saltwater
fishing license to fish from shore
or from a vessel. Short-term
and annual nonresident fishing
licenses cost between $17 and
$47.
Additional fees may apply to
all fishing licenses, depending
on where an angler purchases
the license.
The shoreline requirement
allows exemptions for resident
anglers who fish in their home
county, using live or natural.
bait, on a line or pole without a
line-retrieval mechanism. This
exemption does not apply to an-
glers who use nets, traps, gigs,
spears or who gather seafood by
hand or any type of gear other
than hook and line.
Other exemptions apply for


anglers who qualify for tempo-
rary cash assistance, food stamps
or Medicaid. Also, resident an-
glers who are age 65 or older
and children under age 16 may
fish without a license. Active-
duty military personnel may fish
without a license while home on
leave in Florida.
Licensed fishing piers have li-
censes that cover everyone who
fishes from them.
The FWC suggests the $17
regular saltwater fishing license
may be the best option for most
resident anglers unless they are
certain they will fish only from
shore or a structure affixed to
shore all year.
By creating the shoreline fish-
ing license, the Florida Legisla-
ture arranged for Florida anglers
to be exempt from a more ex-
pensive federal angler registra-
tion requirement that will take
effect in 2011.

iig license requirements, is
available at MyFWC.com. Click

sources."

MESSAGE OF THANKS

The family of Judson and Opal Shoemaker would like to say thank
you to everyone who helped us through the "home going" of our par-
ents/grandparents. Theirs was truly a happily ever after love story, as
God's perfect timing allowed them to go on the same day. Calhoun,
Liberty and Jackson counties reached out to us with love, food, sup-
plies, memorials, cards and prayers. For all your kindnesses, we thank
you. You touched our family from out of town and they know why we
would not want to live anywhere else.
Special thanks to Dr. Bristol and Dr. Christopher for years of care
and concern. Not enough thanks can be said to the staff of Blountstown
Health and Rehab Center. For seven years they compassionately cared
for Dad. When Mom became their patient, she felt at home because
they had lovingly supported her for years as a visitor. Thank you to
Covenant Hospice for their care and helpfulness. Altha First Baptist
and Friendship Alliance Churches have been our rocks. Thank you to
Peavy Funeral Home and the Calhoun VFW Honor Guard for helping
us during this difficult time.
God is in control and has answered many prayers. He has used all of
you to bless us, and we thank you.
Ruth & Jeffrey Barth, Holly & Zacc Sims, Nicholas & Amber Barth,
Heidi & Michael Stone-

The family of Jack Brown would like to thank everyone for all the
prayers through his extended illness and the food and flowers given to
us during our loss. Jack had many friends and family members which
comforted us during this time. Many thanks to Harrell Wood Revell for
being his buddy and friend. I would also like to thank the Church of
God for the meal served after the service and pastors Terry Blackburn
and Jeff McFalls for an outstanding service. Thanks to the Big Bend
Hospice group, without them I would have been lost. Special thanks to
- Carol Edwards and my children for all the support they have given me.
Sincerely, Helen Brown andfamily

More than $70 million to be used for

Weatherization programs in Florida


COLUMBUS, OHIO U.S.
Department of Energy Secretary
Steven .Chu announced that the
Department of Energy is pro-
viding more than $70 million
in Recovery Act funding to ex-
pand weatherization assistance
programs in
Florida. These
funds, along Recoi
with additional
funds to be dis- funding
bursed after the w
- states meet cer- We
tain Recovery assistance
Act milestones, s
will help Flor- create
ida achieve its -
goal of weather- weather
izing more than
19,000 homes, than
lowering energy
costs for low- Florid,
income families
that need it; re-
ducing green-
house gas emissions, and creat-
ing green jobs across the state.
Secretary Chu made today's
announcement while helping
to weatherize-a local resident's
home in Columbus with Ohio
Governor Ted Strickland.
This includes weatherization
funding for a total of 15 states:
California, Delaware, District
of Columbia, Florida, Mary-
land, Montana, North'Caro-
lina, North Dakota, Nebraska,
Nevada, Ohio, South Carolina,
South Dakota, Utah, and West
Virginia. Across the country,
the Department of Energy will
deliver more than $453 million
to help meet these states' goal of
weatherizing more than 165,000
homes. Funding for Arizona,
Kansas, Mississippi and Oregon
was announced previously.
Florida is receiving 40percent
of its total Recovery Act weath-
erization funding today follow-
ing approval of a comprehensive
state plan. This installment adds
to the initial 10 percent funding
allocation previously awarded to
the state for training and ramp-
up activities. After demonstrat-
ing successful implementation
of its plan, the state will receive
an additional $87 million,'for a
total of more than $175 million.
Under the Recovery Act Weath-
erization Assistance Program,
states may spend up to 20 per-
cent of funds to.hire and train
workers.
"These awards demonstrate
the' Obama Administration's
strong commitment to moving
quickly as part of the country's
economic recovery -- creating
jobs and doing important-work
for the American people -- while
ensuring that taxpayer dollars

by making their homes more
energy efficient, which results
in average savings of 32 percent
for heating bills and savings of
hundreds of dollars per year on
.overall energy bills. States will
spend approximately $6,500 to
weatherize each home.
Florida will weatherize more
than 19,000 homes over the next
three years with its Recovery
Act funds. The increase in fund-
ing through the Recovery Act
provides the state with a unique
opportunity to weatherize multi-
family homes, which is not
typically possible at traditional
weatherization funding levels.
Priority for multi-family weath-
erization projects will be given
to assisting the elderly, people
with disabilities, and families
with children under 12. In de-
ciding to weatherize specific
multi-family dwellings, the state
will also give strong consider-
ation to the greatest potential for
energy savings. Weatherization
activities will include renewable
energy systems such as solar wa-
ter heating where appropriate.
The Recovery Act includes a
strong commitment to oversight
and accountability, while em-
phasizing the necessity of rap-
idly awarding funds to help cre-
ate new jobs and stimulate local
economies.
The funding allocations for
the Weatherization Assistance
Program follow a stage-gate
process: on March 12, funding
allocations by state were an-
nounced and the initial 10 per-

Address: Calhoun County Emergency Management Office, Room G40, Calhoun
County Courthouse, 20859 Central Avenue East, Blountstown, FL 32424
Telephone Number: 850-674-8075

These notices shall satisfy two separate but related
procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the
Calhoun County Board of County Commissioners.

REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS
On or about August 3, 2009, Calhoun County will submit a request to the Flori-
da Department of Community Affairs for the release of Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG) funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Develop-
ment Act, as amended, to undertake the CDBG project: Paving County roads: NW
Lamont Road from CR 274 to NW Lake Lillian Road, NW Walter Potts Road from
NW Shelton Boulevard east 6050 feet to existing paving, NW Lake McKenzie Bou-
levard from CR 274 to NW Miller Road, and NW Palm Beach Road from NW Baker
Road south a maximum of 8317 feet ending on MW Melvin New Grade Road. All
work will be performed within existing roadways. Funding will include a $700,000
CDBG and a minimum of $250,000 in County funds.

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
The County has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the
human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the Na-
tional Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project
information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at the
address above, and may be examined or copied weekdays 8:00 A.M to 4:00 P.M.

PUBLIC COMMENTS
Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to Deb-

if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental
review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The State's ap-
proval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws
and authorities and allows the County to use the CDBG funds.

accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall
be addressed to the Florida Department of Community Affairs, CDBG Program,
2555 Shumard Oak Boulevard, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2100. Potential objec-

by Theresa Friday, -
Horticulture Extension Agent,
SANTA ROSA COUNTY
Foliage plants can be
beautiful additions to
a home or office. The
plants that are commonly.
grown for decorative
purposes are usually
tropical plants. Atropical
plant doesn't tolerate cold
temperatures, so they are
happy indoors during
the cooler months. But,
they would prefer to be
outside during warmer
weather.
Now that the weather
is warm and humid,
- think about giving your
houseplants a break from
the stuffy indoors and set
them outside during the
S summer.
According to Dan
SGill, LSU AgCenter
S Horticulturist, moving


The 'ZZ' plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia), like Aglaonema and
Dieffenbachia, is a member of aroid family. Because of its
unique appearance, ability to-tolerate low light levels and
drought, and resistance to diseases and pests, it makes a
great houseplant.


houseplants outside can'
be a little tricky. Houseplants become accustomed
to lower light conditions while indoors. So never
move houseplants from an indoor environment to
direct sunlight. Most houseplants aren't prepared
to handle the strong rays, and will quickly yellow
and wilt. Some will actually get sunburned.
Initially, move houseplants outside to shady
locations where they receive no direct sunlight.
Plants that like low-light conditions can stay in
those locations all summer. Others that prefer more
light can gradually be introduced to some direct
sun over the next couple of weeks.
Eventually, sun-loving houseplants like
bougainvillea, hibiscus, plumeria, tibouchina, and
cactuses- can be placed in locations that get about
six hours of direct sun. Be careful, even sun-loving
houseplants may bum if put in a sunny location as
soon as they come out of the house.
Once outside, most houseplants would enjoy
a good rinsing off with the garden hose. You can
clean away months of indoor dust by doing this.
Put your houseplants on tables or stands rather


than directly on the ground.
This will keep pests like
slugs and ants from invading
through the drainage holes,
and it'll make watering a
lot easier.
Houseplants that are
moved outside will likely
need to be watered more
frequently than when
they were indoors. Air
movement, brighter light
and plants moved outside for
the summer generally grow
vigorously, so if you want to
encourage that growth, it's a
good idea to fertilize them.
Fertilization is especially
important to plants that are
growing in soilless potting
mixes, are root-bound, or
seem pale and lack vigor.
It's generally optional to
fertilize plants that appear
healthy and vigorous and
are already as large as you
want them to be.


Houseplants brought
outdoors for the summer are much more susceptible
to insect problems than those kept indoors. Check
plants regularly for signs of infestation such as holes
in leaves, wilting, and yellowing. Check under the
leaves, the areas where they join the stems, and the
soil, and don't forget to check under their pots as
well.
In the fall, bring your houseplants indoors before
nighttime temperatures dip to 50 degrees F.
When houseplants are brought indoors, be sure
to check for unwanted guests--like ants, termites
and other pest insects. Soaking the pot in a tub of
lukewarm water for about 15 minutes will force
insects and other creatures out of the soil. If snails,
earthworms ,or insects burrowed in the soil, you
might want to repot the plants, placing a piece of
wire screening over the drainage hole to keep them
out next year.
So if you have a languishing houseplant, move
it outside during the warm summer months. It will
usually grow better and more vigorously than if
kept inside.
