A phone tip from an anonymous

Conyers.
Barnes was shot and killed after
forcing his way into Harvell's home,

into a cardboard box where he
kept his medicines and pulled out
a .357 Magnum.
He fired once, hitting Barnes in
the chest. Barnes pushed a large
television down on the 82-year-
old man's leg, pinning him to
the floor. Harvell shot again and
the bullet went into.Barnes' right
eye, leaving him lying dead on
his back, a large amount of cash
still clutched in his fist. The stun
gun and a toy cap pistol with its
barrel colored black to look more
realistic lay nearby.
SHarvell made a frantic 911
call and stayed on the line as the
dispatcher sent out deputies and.
an ambulance.

As Octavius Barnes lay dying
on the floor after a botched
robbery attempt, the three women

Blaze destroys firefighter's home in Blountstown


Woman injured after backing over herself with SUV


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A 38-year-old Bristol woman broke her back,
lacerated her. liver and was badly bruised all over after
she intentionally ran over herself with a large SUV early
Saturday morning.
Liberty County Deputy Caryl Marotta was dispatched
to Joe Red Shuler Road, off County Road 333 at the
Estiffanulga Boat Landing, at 1:15. a.m. in response to
a 911 call about a woman being run over-by her own
vehicle.
She arrived to find Sherry L. McCardle lying on the
ground next to her'Lincoln Navigator. Sitting next to
her was her husband's ex-wife Charlene McCardle,
a licensed practical nurse who stayed at her side until
an ambulance arrived. Sherry McCardle's husband, Dale,
was nearby.
The injured woman was awake and alert. She told the
deputy that she caused the vehicle to run over herself in
an attempt to get her husband's attention after he refused
to come home with her.
"I put the car in reverse and walked behind it. It
knocked me over and ran over me," she said. "I was real
upset with my husband Dale."
McCardle was taken by ambulance to a landing zone


in Bristol, where she was transferred to an emergency
helicopter and flown to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
She was listed in stable condition.
Speaking from her hospital bed the next day,
McCardle admitted that what she did was "pure stupid,"
spurred on by how upset she became after arguing with
her husband.
She said she drove to his ex-wife's home at the boat
landing, where they and several other people were
standing outside, drinking and fishing.
"I said, 'Dale, ain't it time to come home?' He said,
'I'm not coming home.'
She said, "That really hurt me."
It was then she decided to make sure he knew how
she felt."I was going to start the truck and act like I was
going to run over myself," she said. "I wasn't going to
hurt myself but I wanted to get his attention."
She said she put the vehicle in reverse and it was
going slow. "When I got behind it, the trailer ball hit
my foot and knocked me down. I had to roll underneath
'cos the tire was about to go over my head. It ran over
me, from the shoulder on down. I think one fire went
across my chest."
Acknowledging that there was a restraining order


against her being hear Charlene McCardle, she said she
made the effort to "stay 100 feet away" from her. She
also said she called the ex-wife before coming to the area
and said, "she gave me permission as long as there was
no trouble between me and Dale."
Witnesses described seeing the SUV rise off the
ground and hearing Sherry McCardle scream for help.
McCardle said her back is broken in two places and
she is unable to walk. She also broke her back in a 2000
car accident in Bristol.
McCardle's sister, Jackie Kinsey said she was involved
in a single-vehicle accident in Gadsden County just two
days earlier.
S"Thursday morning she wrecked a truck in Quincy,"
she said. Kinsey said an officer took her sister to
Greensboro, where someone came to pick her up and
bring her home. Kinsey said she felt the accident was
not fully investigated.
Her sister has other concerns. "I want to know exactly
how someone backs over themself," she said. "It's just
got our whole family baffled."
She added, "Our main blessing is that she is O.K. and
she's stable and we're going to get her the treatment that
she needs."

Economists say the recession is getting so bad,
it's driving down the prices of many goods. In-fact,
folks, it has gotten so bad, the 99-cent store just

The Republicans had been running a surpris-
ingly effective campaign against the proposal for

SAnd you know, there's some kind of ethics inves-

Ladies and gentlemen, California may have
solved its budget problems. True story -- a politi-
cian in California has proposed a plan that elimi-
nates the state's budget deficit by legalizing and
taxing the sale of marijuana. It's called Proposition
Fo' Shizzle. CONAN O'BRIEN

Here in California, we have no money. Our bud-
get situation is a mess. And when you have no
money, what do you do? You sell drugs, right? A
state representative from San Francisco just in-
troduced a bill that would legalize marijuana. He
claims it would raise almost $1.5 billion a year for
the state in taxes, and another $3 billion in Cheeto -
sales. JIMMY KIMMEL

President Obama was on TV again last night.
And, you know, it's interesting political experts
are now-saying that President Obama is giving so
many interviews and appearing on so many tele-
vision shows that he's starting to dilute his own
message which I think is unfair because I thought
Obama was pretty convincing last night on "Ice
Road Truckers." CONAN O'BRIEN

...don't mess with our health care


I had the opportunity to hear from a
doctor, a friend for more thah 20 years, 10)
about what he thought about President O
Obama's plan to overhaul America's
health care.system. Jerry Cox is a
My local paper ran a piece about officerandwriterw
health care issues and asked that people background in
respond with their views and stories foreign policyissb
about health care. Two doctors and a koos oun
hospital administrator responded. One
of the letters from a family physician
was almost 20 pages in.length.
Comments from my doctor friend and the two physi-
cians that wrote to the newspaper were much the same.
Their major point was that payments from Medicare, Med-
icaid and insurance companies to general practitioners are
not sufficient for them to make a reasonable living and pay
the cost of operating their medical practice.
My doctor friend explained that Medicare sets the stan-
dard for fees for medical procedures and doctor visits.
Private insurance companies set their rates based on what
Medicare will pay.
This doctor said that in order to gain business, private,
insurance companies would offer'to pay more than Medi-
care if the medical facility will sign on with their compa-
ny. However, when it is time to renew the contract with the-
private insurance company, the insurance company will
set a lower rate of payment..
I get a quarterly summary of medical charges'from
Medicare and Tricare. I computed the percentage of the
doctor's fees that were paid by Medicare and Tricare. The
fees on this report were the result of an endoscopy, visit
to the eye doctor and, a visit to family doctor. The fees
charged ranged from $2,1r4 to $103 per procedure or con-
sultation. The percentage of the doctor's fees authorized to
be paid by Medicare ranged from 10.5% to 64.3%.
I couldn't discern a pattern of payment in the limited
data that I have, but I agree with my doctor,friend that
there seems to be no standardization in what Medicare and
insurance companies will pay for the same medical event.
Rule of thumb is that they pay as little as possible.
Comments from my doctor friend and from the letters
written by the two family physicians indicate that there
isn't much love lost between the internist, the family doc-
tor, and the specialist.
The family doctor sees him or herself in the medi-
cal trenches, the frontlines of providing medical care to
Americans, but they don't get the large fees that special-
ists receive.
They invested much money and long hours to get a
medical degree. They work long hours and see many pa-

ith an extensive

ues. He lives in


tients each day to make it financially on
Medicare and insurance. company pay-
ments while a specialist like a heart sur-
geon can do one procedure and make big
bucks.
In fairness to the specialists, they also
invest much money and time to get their
basic medical degree and then continue
to invest time and money into getting a
specialist rating. To me, specialists should
get more for their services, but it seems


'that the ratios of payment between the family physician
and the specialist are a bit out of line. But if you are having
a heart attack, you wilJ give the heart doctor your truck if
he or she will save you. It's that fear of dying thing.
Mr. Obama says that he is going to squeeze Medicare
payments. Wrong move. I sympathize with my doctor
friend. He and I are about the same age, and he works
'at least 60 hours a week. He deserves the money that he
makes. His comment about not letting President Obama
screw up America's health care system rings true.
SBut President Obama is correct in his efforts to correct
a system that is going to bankrupt the country. A solution
requires that we all cooperate and graduate. Nothing is
free. We have to pay for the goods and services that we
receive from the market place.
My doctor friend says that part of the problem is that
those of us who pay for health care are also paying for
health care for the uninsured. I believe that, but it's not
clear as what percentage of the cost is attributable to the
uninsured. The discussion gets uglier when the subject of
health care for illegal aliens is broached.
There will always be people who can't afford health
care insurance. The question for the rest of us is will
we pay for their health care. My doctor friend says just
raise the cost of insurance to the rest of us and problem
is solved.
I tend to agree with that but most people do not. Let
'em eat cake is the basic view of people on the'street. But,
talk with a social worker and he or she will explain that
there are many people that will never be able to work and
take care of themselves. They are the sick, old, frail and
mentally incompetent.
I don't think there is a solution to the health care prob-
lem. Americans hate the government and taxes. People in
other industrialized countries are willing to pay the taxes
and take care of their collective social issues. Americans
are not willing to do that.
Nation states tend to disintegrate from pressures with-
in. I think we are seeing cracks beginning to appear in the
foundation of this place called America.

Where does the expression
"out of sorts" come from? -H.
T, Sanders, Ariz:
Like "minding your Ps and Qs"
(to be sure that these lowercase
letters weren't reversed), "out of
sorts" was a printer's term, dating
from the' time when printers
placed metal type in rows. If you
were out of the letter M, then
you might substitute a W, placed
upside down. If you were out of
the lowercase letter p (perhaps it
was time to advertise pippins),
then you might use an upended
lowercase d instead. In printer's
lingo, a "sort" was a substitution.
If you were all out of sorts,
that meant that you were out of
alternate possibilities to get your
work in print --and probably out
of patience, as well.

How are houseflies able to walk
upside down? -G. E., Cimarron,
Kans.
Adhesive. In short, this
common household pest has
sticky feet. You might wonder,
then, how it ever takes off again,.
if the adhesive on its feet is strong
enough to support its full weight.
The fact is, each foot has two
claws attached to it, and the sticky


pads are under the claws. So the
housefly can choose whether to
adhere or to let go, something like
the waya cat can extend its claws
when they are useful and retract
them when they're not.
What we find more wonderful
is how the fly goes from its
upright, flying position as it nears
the ceiling, to its upside-down
position once on the ceiling. Any
guesses? We're told that rather
than doing a last-minute barrel
roll like the airplane pilots do,
the fly actually lands in a sort
of handstand position, its front
feet over its head, and then flips
itself upside down with its in-
flight momentum to carry it, thus
landing on all six feet. Neat trick,
wouldn't you agree?
Of course, most of us aren't
too impressed when we see
houseflies. The same stickiness


that allows them to remain on the
ceiling also allows them to pick
up all manner of bacteria, which
they then spread around. By one
estimate, a single fly may carry
up to 500 million bacteria, most
of them harmless but some not
so benign. Tuberculosis, cholera,
and typhoid fever have all been
spread by the domestic housefly,
so get out those fly swatters!
Luckily, the number ofhouseflies
is diminishing in the United
States, mostly as a result of better
household screen windows and
doors. If screens don't do the trick
for you, try the old-fashioned
ribbons of sticky flypaper, hung
in doorways or from the ceiling.
Better to give them a sticky dose
of their own tricks than to tolerate
their mess in your kitchen.

We have an old beech stump


that keeps sprouting instead of
rotting. How do we get rid of it?
-V V, Newport, R.I.
Many varieties 'of trees,
including cottonwood, willow,
box elder, linden, red oak, crab
apple, green ash, and beech,
seem to have a survival instinct
that compels them to sprout
anew after being cut down. Some
types, such as the black locust,
can even put up sprouts from the
roots. In the wild, this helps to
ensure that a tree that has been
damaged can reestablish itself.
In our backyards, however, the
same trait can be a nuisance,
because often the new shoots do
not produce a healthy, single-
trunk tree, but a mass of tangled
shoots.
There are various strategies for
getting rid of the problem. The
simplest technique may be to cut

LIlA DAVIS AND HER BABIES
Lila Davis has become a surrogate mother many times over to wildlife babies. She has
raised and released squirrels and deer. She also has mothered ducks, geese, guineas, ground
hogs, turkeys, goats, peacocks, chickens, rabbits and a pig. Of course she and her husband,
John have regular pets as well. He has a cocker spaniel named Daisy and Lila has five res-
cued cats.
Her newest rescue baby is a calico kitten, Bridget. Bridget was named appropriately. Lila
rescued her off the Apalachicola River Bridge on June 2 and brought her home to join Sweetie,
Rambo, Josie and Boots. She says that she is a softy when it comes to animals.
Bridget brings a smile to Lila's face, as does the rest of her menagerie of animals that live
with her and John in Bristol. They have a love of animals and a soft spot for orphaned ani-
mals.

the trunk as low to the ground as
possible, or even dig away the
soil around it in order to cut it
off below ground level. Once you
have accomplished this, apply a
mound of time-released fertilizer,
or even a thick coat of manure,
and then cover that with a thick
layer of soil, mounding it up,
if necessary, over the trunk and
any exposed roots. The fertilizer
should help to speed up the
decomposition process, while the
.thick layer of soil should prevent
any light from seeping in. With
a little luck, decomposition will
result, rather than new shoots
next spring.
If the tree still tries to make a
comeback, you may need to get
a professional to come and grind
away the stump. This can be
costly but is generally effective.
We prefer it to chemical means,
which can harm neighboring trees

teered his precious time to teach the youth how-
to create simple, elIegant, and most importantly,
nutritious meals. The menu included a variety
of kid friendly "delicacies", but the favorites by
far were home-

them make cookbooks

In addition to learn-
ing to .prepare nutri-
tious meals, youth were
taught correct prin-
ciples of nutrition, and
focused on exercise as
a part of a healthy life-
style. They enjoyed learning unique ways to burn
calories and especially enjoyed taking turns at the
popular game Dance-Dance Revolution.
At the end of the two day camp, students showed
their appreciation to Chef Tanner by presenting him
with an apron that they
had each signed and
which was similar
to the ones they had
been using through-

Go 'Back to School' this

year with a new adventure

and an international friend
Families across the US will soon be filling their backpacks.
with supplies for the 2009/2010 school year. In Europe, South
America and Asia, foreign exchange students are still waiting
to hear that a family has opened their heart and home to host
them for the school year. What a wonderful way to start the
new school year by learning about another culture and forming
an international friendship! Your family can make it possible
for one of these students to start packing up their supplies to
come experience life in the US. By the time the school year
has ended you will both have a backpack full of memories that
will last a lifetime!
The non-profit CASE exchange student program is making
its final push before the school year starts to find volunteer
homes in Florida for high school age foreign exchange stu-
dents who will arrive in mid-August to attend a semester or
year of schooling in the US. Each student has his or her own
medical insurance, spending money, and has expressed a true
desire to become a participating member of an American fami-
ly pitching in on everything from household chores to family
discussions. In return the student will share-his or her culture
and unique way of thinking with the host family and their new
American school friends.
In particular, the program is looking for a host family for a
15-year-old boy from Mexico who is an avid tennis player, and
a 17-year-old from Sweden who says he practices ice hockey 3
times a week and also enjoys all sports. Families supply room
and board and a measure of guidance for the student during his
or her exchange stay.
For more information contact the CASE Field Development
Office at 1 (877) 417-9675 or visit their website at: www.case-

- fast in Libc
by Teresa Eubanks; Journal Editor
There aren't many places left
where you can bury a body in
Liberty County.
Not legally, anyway.
A lack of room at established
cemeteries means families can
no longer expect that their final
resting place will be with their
already-deceased relatives, as
distraught survivors are learning r
too late.
Liberty County has two city I
cemeteries; one in Bristol, the
other in Hosford. For years,
families have conductedburials f
free of charge while inmate
labor has been used to maintain
the grounds. Now both are filling up.
As plots become fewer, the rules become
more stringent, especially for the area's many
church-maintained cemeteries. Just because
your grandparents are buried there doesn't
mean you are guaranteed an adjoining spot.
Especially if you're not a church member.
Lester Summers, long-time member and
former cemetery committee member at Lake
Mystic Baptist Church said, "We're considered
full. We've got roughly 100 to 150 grave sites
left that are allocated for church members
only."
S Liberty County Commissioner Davis
)n
Stoutamire estimated that there are around 35
cemeteries scattered throughout the county
from Rock Bluff to Sumatra, but no new public
cemeteries have been established in Liberty
*i County for quite some time.
i "Where are we going to put everybody?"
he asked, explaining, "We've got to find some
additional properties to make cemeteries out
S of." He and Liberty County Clerk of Court
Robert Hill are talking with landowners in
hopes that someone will have at least 10 acres
they would be willing to deed to the county
for that use.
There's already been one donation but it's
not an appealing one. "St. Joe gave us 100 acres
next to the landfill, but people think it's not an
appropriate place for a cemetery," Stoutamire
;.E'ir said.

He said another commissioner felt they should
take advantage of the offer, but Stoutamire
responded, "I certainly wouldn't want to be
carted off above the landfill to be buried."
St. Joe officials offered to sell a 25-acre site


?rty County


along State Road 20 in Hosford for $165,000,
he said. "It would make an ideal cemetery but
we don't have the money to buy it," he said.
"I would like to see some of our area's big
landowners step up to the plate and offer some
property."
What are we looking for? "We need about 10
acres on the west side of the county and 10 acres
on the east side of the county. That way, we can
give people their preference for burial," he said.
He believes any new county-owned cemeteries
should offer free burial space.
He said burial plots in the City of Quincy
currently cost $500 each.
And the new cemeteries need to be set up
properly. Funeral Director Charles McClellan
told Stoutamire that a five foot by 10 foot spot
is needed with each grave, along with some
spacing in between. "He said you can put
approximately 1,100 graves on one acre of
ground if it's laid out properly," he said.
"The 1,100 is not ideal," said McClellan.
"I suggest five feet by 10 feet with walkways
After every couple of lots." He also urges that
anyone establishing a family cemetery on their
own land be sure to record it at the clerk's of-
fice "so it will always be there."
Davis has also suggested that the board of
county commissioners establish a cemetery
committee, with each commissioner appointing
a committee member from their district. He
suggests that two more committee members be
appointed at large.
Anyone who might consider making a land
donation is urged to contact Robert Hill at the
Liberty County Clerk of Court's office at 643-
2215.

Nandina domestic, also
known as heavenly bamboo,
is a tough, bread-and-butter
evergreen shrub. Nandina is
an extremely popular shrub and
is frequently used to hide or
camouflage unsightly outdoor
items or structures. While the
common name may make you
think it's a type of bamboo, it
is hot.
It is, however, an invasive
species along the Gulf Coast,
and is actively disrupting native
plant communities. In addition to
Florida, it has escaped cultivation
in eight other states.
Many invasive species
were originally introduced as,
ornamental plants, including
nandina. It was first established
in the United States in 1804 and
has been used extensively for its
attractive and dependable foliage,
flowers and berries.
The abundant red berries are
eaten by birds and other animals.
Where the berries are excreted,
nandina sprouts, sometimes

underground stems, popping up
to form dense thickets.
The first step in preventing
.the spread of this invasive
species is to limit planting and to
remove existing plants within the
landscape. If possible, removal
should occur before seeds are
produced. Berries contain two
seeds and remain on the plant
for several months so care must
be exercised to prevent seed
dispersal during the removal
process.
If you can't, or won't, remove
the plant, remove the flowers in
spring or the developing berries


SWITH A LETTER
S SPEAK UP! TO E EDITOR
Write: The Calhoun-Liberty Journal
P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321


Bristol roses to be replaced
To the editor,
This letter is an apology to the members of the Liberty Women's
Club and to the people of Bristol in general. I had good intentions
but made an embarrassing and humiliating mistake.
I noticed all the rose bushes planted in various places in Bristol
and Blountstown and thought it would be nice to plant some by the
"Welcome To Bristol" sign. So I bought some roses and with the
great help of Linda Blair, Ms. Burch and some fellows from the
Liberty Youth Academy, planted the rose bushes. However, it seems
I bought the wrong rose bushes. I did not know there were several
kinds of this type rose and the bushes I bought did not grow as the
other bushes do. The result is a very pitiful sight. There was a tag on
one bush but I did not take the time to read it and I had told the lady
at the nursery where I was planting them and no one said anything,
so I had no idea that I had the wrong roses.
I admit to being a 'plant freak' but most all my plants are con-
tainer house plants such as ferns, Rex Begonias, cactus, etc. I do
have four rose bushes a gift from one of my daughters but roses
are just not my expertise.
The rose bushes will be replaced at my expense and planted a
little differently, later this year. I guarantee some pretty flowering
roses to be blooming later this year.
Thank you for your time and attention.
Elly Paulin, Bristol


in early summer to prevent the
spread of this invasive plant. To
control the underground spread,
handpull smaller sprouts being
careful to remove all fragments of
root to prevent reinfestation.
Nandina can be aggressive
in.the landscape and difficult to
remove, so think carefully before
planting it. If you really want to
use nandina in the landscape, look
for proven sterile cultivars that
are either berry-free or produce
berries that don't germinate.
More than 40 cultivars
of nandina exist but little
information is available on the
potential invasiveness of its
cultivars. However, University
of Florida research in north and
south Florida has shown that
'Firepower' nandina does not
flower, or fruit.
'Firepower' nandina grows
to be 24 to 60 inches tall and is
considered a medium-size cultivar.
Often it is marketed as "dwarf"
because it:is distinctly shorter
than the standard species type and
is slower growing. Annual plant
growth of 'Firepower' nandina
is 4 to 6 inches. Typical mature
specimens of'Firepower' nandina
are 24 inches tall and wide.
New leafgrowth is a chartreuse
color, and becomes tinged with red
during the growing season. The
real show stopper is its stunning
rich crimson fall and winter
coloring. For more information
on 'Firepower' nandina, view
the University of Florida online
publication at http://edis.ifas.ufl.
.edu/EP381.
Successful establishment of
nandinas in the landscape often
depends on planting techniques
and care. They prefer to be
placed in a shrub bed that-is well-
drained to moist, loose, and rich
in nutrients and humus. Cover
with a layer of mulch to prevent
loss of moisture, deter weeds and
moderate summer temperatures.
If you have existing non-sterile
nandinas in the landscape, be
responsible and ensure that you
don't allow its spread by removing
the flowers orberries. Ifyou want
to add this tough, easy-to-grow
plant to your landscape, be sure
to choose a cultivar that is known
to be noninvasive.


RIGHT: The invasive
species known as
nandina was first
established in the United
States in 1804 and has
been used extensively
for its attractive, and
dependable foliage,
flowers and berries.

Fun Friday Water Day is just one of the activities the kids partici-
pate in each week at the 21st Century Community Learning Center
summer day camp in Liberty County. These activities are great fun for
the kids after working on academic and enrichment skills all week.
We have had over 100 campers each day from all over Liberty
County. We have been able to serve these campers at no expense
to the parents or school board
through the 21st Century Com-
munity Learning Center grant
from the Department of Education
awarded to the Liberty County
School District.
The children had a lot of fun
and made new friends from other
schools in the county. In addition
to fun, the children sharperied
their Reading, Math and Science
skills as well as enjoy music and ,Noah McCrosky fires his water
