Woman killed when


car runs off road in


Monday rainstorm
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Grand Ridge woman was killed when the roof of her overturned car slammed
into a pair of pine trees along S.R. 69 on a rainy Monday morning.
The fatality was identified as 51-year-old Deborah C. Daniels.
According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, Daniels was northbound
on S.R. 69 around 9:25 a.m. when her 2009 Pontiac began rotating counter-
clockwise, crossing the southbound lane and entering the west shoulder.
The car's right side and undercarriage hit the embankment, causing it to flip
onto its right side. The vehicle's roof collided with two pine trees after barreling
through other trees and limbs.
Emergency workers responding to the call arrived to find the red car on its
right side, with its front and rear end twisting around the trees.
Daniels was pronounced dead at the scene by Calhoun County EMS
workers.


Passenger

hospitalized

after rollover

near landing
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A day of tubing on the Chipola River
ended with two Blountstown teenagers
being rushed to area hospitals after the
vehicle they were traveling in overturned
last Wednesday.
The accident happened around 2:10 p.m.
on Johnny Boy Landing Road, according
to FHP Trooper Dallas Jones.
"They were going too fast, ran off the
road, overcorrected and lost control," he
said of the girls, who were traveling in a
2000 Dodge Durango registered to Mary
Foreman of Blountstown. The accident
happened about a half mile from the
landing
The driver, Roxanne Weber, 18, was
taken to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital, where
she was treated and released that day, he
said.
Her passenger, 16-year-old Brandy
Tyus, was taken by emergency helicopter
to Bay Medical Center. She was released
two days later but has a long recovery
ahead, according to her mother, Christy
Cook.
"She's not paralyzed, but she's not able
to walk on her own," Cook said of her
daughter, who was thrown from her seat
onto Weber when the SUV rolled onto the
driver's side.
"She got fractures from her hip bone to

Williams honored as Trustee of the Year at Florida


Hospital Association Celebration of Service Awards


Laddie Williams with his award.


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Local folks know Laddie Williams as
the man behind the hardware store counter;
first, at the old C.C. Corbin store, later at
Blountstown Supply and in more recent
years, as manager of Tatum's Hardware.
He may know a few things about
wrenches, plumbing and painting, but his
mission to keep Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
open shows he knows a lot more about
people and how to get things done. Using
tools that can't be found in any hardware
store, Williams has made the most of his
drive, persistence, patience and pride
to reestablish the hospital's place in the
community.
His skill at revitalizing a critically-
needed facility written off by everyone
else was recognized at last week's Florida
Hospital Association (FHA) Celebration
of Service Awards Gala at Lake Buena
Vista, where the 75-year-old Blountstown
resident was named Trustee of the Year.


"His leadership is

the singular reason

there remains a

hospital here today."
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
Administrator Ron Gilliard,
speaking on the impact Laddie
Williams has had as chairman
of the hospital board

"The credit goes to the other board
members and employees of the hospital,"
Williams said, but those who nominated
him know what he's done has made all the
difference. He has served as Chairman for
20 of his 22 years on the hospital board.
"The community got behind the hospital
after we took it back in December 2005.
We've almost completely renovated the


inside. We now average 10 patients a
day, up from one a day," said Williams.
The reason? He credits the staff as well
as the board, saying, "We're all one team
together."
The board which Williams points
out includes a minister, a dentist and two
accountants looks at the bottom line
before acting. "We take the politics out of
it and look at the dollars and cents before
we make a decision," he says.
According to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
Administrator Ron Gilliard, Williams
"literally refused to allow the closure" after
being told Dec. 23, 2005 that the company
leasing the hospital was going to shut it
down. "Rather than closure, he has led
the hospital back to not only a position of
renewed respect in the community, but to
a sound financial footing and a bright and
exciting future," said Gilliard.

Mother, son and friend arrested in


drug task force raid Thursday night


Three people were arrested on
drug charges after a search warrant
was served on a Rock Bluff Road
residence last Thursday.
Members of the Liberty/
Calhoun County Drug Task
Force, along with officers from
the Gadsden County Sheriff's
Office and the FHP, went to
the home of Kimberly Denise
Solomon at 9:45 p.m.
Several people in front of the
residence were secured before
officers made contact with
Solomon.
When told that undercover
officers had purchased narcotics
from her home, she replied, "I
can't control what they do while
I'm at work."
A burnt marijuana cigarette
was found on the headboard of
the bed in Solomon's bedroom.
In a second bedroom identified
as belonging to Solomon's son,
Edgar Verdell Baskerville,
officers found a bag tucked under
a mattress which held several

smaller clear plastic bags of
marijuana packaged for sale
and a brown bottle with several
different kinds of pills. Next to
the dresser was a scale described
by officers as "similar to those
used to weigh narcotics."
Two clear plastic baggies with
what appeared to be marijuana
residue were found in an ashtray
in the kitchen.
Officers were aware that
Michael Jerome Bailey, who had
been in the front yard with several
others when they arrived, had an
outstanding warrant for his arrest.
He was taken into custody and


Two drivers arrested for DUI

within minutes in same area


A Telogia teenager was charged
with DUI after a traffic stop just
minutes after midnight Saturday.
Whitney E. Page Johnson,
18, was pulled over after Deputy
Chad Smith noticed her make a
left turn without signaling onto
Bud Duncan Road, he saw the
left side of the vehicle go off the
road and noticed that the vehicle's
registration had expired.
Smith's report
noted that Johnson
had difficulty
removing her
license from
her wallet and
smelled strongly
of an alcoholic
beverage.

She was taken into custody
and transported to the jail. After
giving two breath samples to
determine her blood alcohol level,
she had readings of .217 and .213.
Florida's legal limit is .08.
Her passenger, 18-year-old
Brogan Elsie White of Hosford,
was issued a notice to appear in


court for possession of alcohol by
a person under the age of 21.
While assisting Smith at the
aforementioned traffic stop,
Deputy Duncan Rudd spotted
a white truck that turned from
Burlington Road onto Bud
Duncan Road at 12:30 a.m. He
recognized 59-year-old Billy Burl
Pullam behind the wheel. Aware
that Pullam's driver's license had
been suspended,
Rudd pulled him
over.
When he
approached the
truck to speak
with Pullam, Rudd
noticed an open
can of beer in a
drink holder by the
driver's right leg.
When asked if it
was his, Pullam
ULLAM replied, "Yeah, it'
mine. I only had
two or three."
Pullam stepped out to take a
roadside sobriety test. He was
asked to complete three exercises
but failed to follow the deputy's
directions.
He was taken into custody on
charges of DUI, driving while
license suspended or revoked
and refusal to submit to a breath
test.


during a search of his person,
a clear plastic bag containing
marijuana was found in the right
front pocket of his jeans.
In his left front pocket was
found a brown paper bag that
contained three "Swisher Sweets"
cigars, which the arrest report
noted "are commonly used to
smoke marijuana."
Bailey, 41, of Bristol, was
arrested for possession of less
than 20 grams of marijuana and
possession of paraphernalia.
Solomon, 46, was charged
with leasing or renting for
the purpose of trafficking in
controlled substances, possession
of less than 20 grams of
marijuana and possession of drug
paraphernalia.
A long list of charges were filed
against 21-year-old Baskerville,
including six felonies and one
misdemeanor. They included
possession of a controlled
substance (marijuana) with
intent to sell within 1000 ft. of a
church, possession of a controlled
substance (Xanax) with intent to
sell within 1000 ft. of a church,
possession of a prescription drug
without a prescription (Cymbalta),
possession of a prescription drug
without a prescription (Sinequan),
possession of a prescription drug
without a prescription (Effexor

NOTICE OF

CORRECTION
A pair ofphotos were incorrectly
used with last week's story about
Alexander Raya and Ginger
Peacock's arrest for possession and
intent to distribute marijuana.
Those pictured were actually
Lydia Anthony and Mike Lucas.
Anthony was arrested Sept. 26 on
charges including petty theft, theft
of a credit card, larceny, criminal
personal use of an ID and burglary
of a conveyance.
Lucas, 48, was arrested Sept. 22
on a Bay County warrant for strong
arm robbery and battery. Officers
from the Calhoun County li .f's
Office found Lucas at an Isoletta
Road residence, where he was
discovered hiding under a bed.
We would also like to acknowledge
that we failed to give photo credit to
Tony Shoemake for the great BHS

Intoxicated man tased after trying


to bite ER staffer, sheriff's deputy


Traffic stop leads to charge

of marijuana possession
A Blountstown man stopped for going over the speed limit had
a believable excuse. He showed the deputy that his speedometer
registered 60 mph when his vehicle was standing still. But he couldn't
explain away the odor of burning marijuana and the smell of an
alcoholic beverage coming from the inside of his vehicle when the
deputy walked up to check his license, which, it turns out, had been
suspended.
Deputy Eddie Dalton pulled over Alan Kenneth Pyles after his
radar showed he was going 48 mph in a 35 mph zone while traveling
east on Parrish Lake Road around 7 p.m. Friday.
Pyles admitted he had consumed alcohol and agreed to take a
roadside evaluation, which determined that he was not impaired.
After a drug dog walked around the vehicle, it gave a positive
passive alert that indicated the odor of narcotics. Pyles and his children
stepped out of the vehicle so it could be searched.
A black book bag found behind the driver's seat held Pyles' personal
belongings. Under some clothing, deputies found a plastic bag with
approximately four ounces of marijuana along with a set of digital
scales.
The children were turned over to their mother's care and Pyles
was arrested.
He was charged with possession of more than 20 grams of
marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving while license
suspended or revoked.


An intoxicated 23-year-old who
allegedly choked a 53-year-old
man and then pushed a 59-year-old
woman who had tried to separate
them was subdued with a blast
from a taser after he was brought to
the emergency room with a blood
alcohol level of .409, according to
a report from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office.
Joshua Best was later given a
medical clearance, released from
the emergency room and taken into
custody on a battery charge following
the Sept. 30 incident.


JOSHUA BEST


According to the arrest report, Martha Broxton -
who shares a residence on NE Live Oak Lane with
her friend, Ruth Best, along with Best's son, Joshua,
and her live-in boyfriend, Mike Leroy drove to
the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office to report the
incident last Wednesday night.
Broxton told deputies that she saw Joshua
choking Leroy and tried to intervene, only to be
shoved away. She said she was knocked to the
ground and injured her elbow.


She left for a short time. When she
returned, she said Joshua grabbed her
and tried to take her vehicle keys. She
broke free and drove to the sheriff's
office.
When Deputy Nic Keller arrived
at the scene, he found Joshua
"intoxicated to the extent that he
could not walk or speak." He was
taken to the emergency room, where
he became combative with the
staff as they attempted to start an
IV. Another deputy arrived to find
Joshua screaming profanities and
asking for his mother as he kicked


and struggled against the restraints that held him
on the bed. As he chewed on his cloth restraints, he
pulled out the IV.
After he nearly bit an emergency room worker
and a deputy, he was stunned with a shot from a
taser to his chest, which allowed the staff to adjust
his restraints in an effort to keep him from hurting
himself.
Because he lives in the home with Broxton and
Leroy, Joshua was charged with domestic battery.


Late night traffic stop near Peanut Mill


,FALL SAVINGS


leads to arrest for possession of meth


A routine traffic stop led to the
arrest ofa3 8-year-old Blountstown
man on methamphetamine
charges after a deputy noticed he
was driving late at night with only
one operational headlight.
Calhoun County Deputy Eddie
Dalton was patrolling along C.R.
69-A at the Peanut Mill around
12:03 a.m. last Wednesday
when he noticed the equipment
violation on a southbound Dodge
truck. When he turned around to
follow the truck, he saw that both
taillights were broken and the tag
had expired in 2007.
He pulled over the vehicle to


find that the driver, Randy Smith,
38, did not have his license with
him, had no insurance and the
truck was not registered.
Noticing that Smith was getting
nervous, the deputy became
suspicious. During a search,
the deputy discovered a clear
plastic bag of what appeared to
be methamphetamine in his right
front pants pocket. Smith stated
that he had just purchased it from
someone on 69-A.
Three plastic bags containing
meth residue were found inside
a lunch box on the front seat of
the truck.

Smith was charged with
possession of methamphetamine
and possession of drug

THE ARTS



Pine-weaver Lynn Crain to present


pine needle art program in Marianna


MARIANNA-The public is
invited to the Chipola Regional
Arts Association meeting at Jim's
Buffet, Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 11:30
a.m.
Pine-weaver Lynn D. Crain
will present a program about
baskets and wall art made from
pine needles.
Creative in many art forms
including string art, flower
arrangement, decorating with
plants, and crewel tapestries,
pine needle weaving is now her
primary craft which has evolved
into award-winning baskets and
wall hangings. Crain loves color
in her baskets and wall art and
will share how color is introduced
and utilized.
She says, "There are no set
patterns or designs written
somewhere. My mind and heart
start the baskets, and the baskets


always finish themselves. I
am always trying something
new, something different, the
colors, stitching, combinations,
shapes, styles, media and ideas."


For information, visit www.
pineweaver.com.
For information on the Oct. 20
meeting, contact Homer Hirt at

TALLAHASSEE -- The
Florida State University College
of Motion Picture, Television
and Recording Arts www.film.
fsu.edu/, better known to most
as The Film School, today
announced that it has agreed to
terms that propose an educational
partnership with a company that
plans to build a large-scale digital
production studio in Florida.
Frank Patterson, dean of the
nationally renowned Film School,
said that the university executed a
letter of intent with John Textor,
chairman ofWyndcrest Holdings
LLC www.wyndcrest.com/, a
technology-focused private
holding company whose affiliate
was recently awarded an economic
development grant by the state of
Florida. The grant will facilitate
the construction of a large-scale
digital production studio and the
creation of hundreds of new jobs
for Floridians.
Florida State is eager to create
the partnership, Patterson said,
because "the professionals we
are talking to in this relationship
are some of the most important
leaders in the film and digital
industries. The direction they
plan to take with the new studio
in the development of innovative
technologies and storytelling
techniques is directly in line with
the educational goals of The Film
School. It's a perfect match."
Textor, a 40-year resident
of Florida, is no stranger to the
digital film industry. In addition
to Wyndcrest Holdings, he also
serves as chairman of Digital
Domain www.digitaldomain.com/
a California-based corporation


15A

.09


and one of Hollywood's most
accomplished and lauded visual
effects companies. Responsible
for visual effects in such films
as "Titanic," "Pirates of the
Caribbean" and "Transformers,"
Digital Domain has earned
numerous Academy Awards
for its creative and technical
accomplishments, including last
year's Oscar for Best Visual
Effects. This most recent award
recognized the company's
groundbreaking animation in its
creation of a synthetic human
character that shared the lead
actor role in a performance driven
by Brad Pitt in "The Curious Case
of Benjamin Button."
While both parties still are
working on the details of the
partnership, Patterson said that
discussions have centered on
finding ways to collaborate on
the research and development
of new storytelling tools, and to
implement innovative curricula
that will give students unique
learning opportunities in digital
filmmaking.
Textor said he and his
colleagues set their sights on
Florida State University for
one main reason: "Their Film
School graduates are excellent
storytellers, and story is the key


to our business.
"Floridians just now seem to be
learning what leading filmmakers
already know -- that the quality of
the FSU Film School's creative
work is among the very best in
the country," he said.
Since The Film School was
created in 1989, Florida State
film students have won more than
800 national and international
recognition at festivals and
screenings around the world.
Over the past five years alone,
Film School students have won
five Student Oscars and six
Student Emmys.
In the proposed partnership,
The Film School will have
educational programs and a
facility collocated with the new
digital studio and will serve as
the studio's liaison to Florida's
many educational institutions
throughout the state. One of the
first connections the partnership
is likely to forge is with Indian
River State College, located
in St. Lucie County, which is
also the proposed location for
Wyndcrest's planned digital
production studio. Patterson
recently met with Indian River
President Edwin R. Massey to
tour its Fort Pierce campus and
visit the newly established Digital
Media Institute.
"Dr. Massey and his colleagues
have excellent digital education
facilities and enjoy faculty and
students who have great energy,"
Patterson said. "The Digital
Media Institute at Indian River
State College is a smart place
for us to begin our educational
relationships in digital media."

I'm all for a free press, but with
freedom of the press comes respon-
dom sibility, not much of which I have
S.. observed in recent months, particu-
larly in radio and cable television.
The 24-hour news cycle requires 24
hours of something, mostly noise,
most of which are talking heads bab-
bling about "breaking news."
If I could live long enough, it
. would be interesting to know what


future historians


think about the effects of television and talk radio on
humanity. In my view, both mediums have a divisive
.. effect on American society.
S- There might be something to that adage that money
is the root of all evil. While entertaining, occasionally
informing but mostly trash talking, the electronic me-
dia is about money. Sponsors pay big bucks to air their
message of "buy our product." How does the media get
people to watch or listen to their stations or programs?
Simple, tell them what they want to hear. Appeal to
-w people's base instincts and their prejudices.
S-f t We all have an opinion about most everything. I
do. This is an opinion about opinions, and I accept the
responsibility that goes with my opportunity to state
my views in a newspaper. For example, I'm not going
to agree with Representative Grayson of Florida that
deaths in America allegedly from lack of health insur-
ance is a holocaust. Inflammatory and a poor choice of
words.
I will agree with Representative Grayson that each
year more than 40,000 deaths of Americans without
health insurance are not acceptable for this place called
America. I will qualify that comment by admitting that
I don't know the circumstances of the deaths of all of
these people. Many could have died from accidents and
-- the lack of health insurance is a moot point. The point
of the healthcare debate is that our elected representa-
tives should stop the political bickering and do what is
best for the people of this country.
S-* - President Obama is a lightning rod for cynical Amer-
S icans. This guy can do nothing right. He is damned if
- he does and damned if he doesn't.
S First, Mr. Obama is a politician. Many think that
while running for the presidency he promised a chick-


en in every pot. Probably true, but all
politicians do that. In the past presiden-
tial campaign, Senator John McCain
also promised that he would right all
the wrongs of America. Not enough
people believed him; more believed Mr.
Obama, and Mr. Obama gets to slay the
political dragons. Good luck on that.
But, all presidents are criticized. The
media, particularly from the left, pil-


loried President Bush. Critics wrote books about his
foibles as president. The same is happening and will
continue to happen for President Obama. Republicans
can't grow enough trees to make enough paper to print
their chronicles of dislike for Obama. However, that's
politics.
The right-wing news media is having great fun with
President Obama's failed effort to bring the Olympic
Games to America. The media gored Obama for taking
a few hours to fly to Copenhagen to plead America's
case. Presidents from other countries were there do-
ing the same, touting the qualities of their respective
countries.
President Obama was criticized for taking time away
from the more important issues of two wars and the
healthcare debate. The hypocrisy of the right knows no
bounds. The right fails to mention that President Bush
spent four days at the Olympic Games in Beijing while
two wars were being waged and America's financial
system was beginning to collapse. Nevertheless, noth-
ing wrong with that in my view. President Bush was
showing the American flag, just as Mr. Obama was
showing the American flag in Copenhagen.
I think that all of us are bombarded with too much
information. I know, inquiring minds have a right to
know, but public comments indicate to me that they
might not understand the finer points of a national is-
sue.
When a person on Medicare, Tricare for Life and
who is drawing a military retirement check and most
likely a VA disability payment states that a "public
healthcare option" is a socialist system, then I know
that this is a confused person.
But this is America and people can be as confused as
they want to be, and the media is happy to help.

PETS Anr PEOPLE


Gabriel, Krynn & Princess Buttercup
Princess Buttercup, also known as "Butters" is a three-month old English Bulldog who
came from a local breeder to make her home with the White family of Bristol.
Tolar fifth grader, Krynn, and second grader Gabriel like to play and roughhouse with
Butters. Their dad, Jon, says Butters has taken to him the best. "She likes to chew on
you and play. She's a natural puppy," he laughs. "I have taught her to sit, but she won't
sit for my wife."
Jon has always wanted an English Bulldog because they are tough looking with short
legs. He likes the breed. So when he and his wife, Marsha decided to expand their
family, they felt this was the time for an English Bulldog. "I knew that she was the one
the minute I saw her," says Jon. Butters was with several puppies from the same litter
when the family first saw her, but the family says she stood out.
Butters likes to chase a motorized ball, run after the family cat and enjoys the occa-
sional puppy treat.

Liberty 4-H to measure and take orders for helmets at discounted price


New law means big fine for parents of



young horse riders not wearing helmets


Nicole's Law requires a child
younger than 16 years of age
to wear an American Society
of Testing and Measurements
(ASTM)-approved equestrian
helmet while riding a horse on
public property or during a lesson.
Parents or guardians of the child
riding without an approved helmet
will be accountable for the non-
criminal violation fine of $500.
The helmet must be properly
fitted and strap(s) fastened while
the child is riding. Enforcement
of Florida's Nicole's Law started
on Oct. 1.
Public property under the
new law includes roads, right-
of-ways, public equestrian
trails, recreational trails, parks,
preserves, public schools sites,


and other publicly controlled
property. Exceptions to the law
include riding on private land (as
long as not engaged in a lesson
or on a rented or leased horse),
rodeos, and parades.
To help local families comply
with the Nicole's Law, the Liberty
County 4-H Horse and Pony Club
has partnered up with equestrian
helmet company Troxel. Every
Wednesday in October, the club
will be available to the public
from 5-7 (Eastern) at the MacRae
Arena to measure for sizing. After
sizing, the club can take orders
for Troxel's Sport model helmet
in white at the discounted price
of $23. Troxel will be offering
their 2 year accident replacement
program for this helmet.


We've cut prices then guaranteed them for a year!

4-H to raise funds selling treats

for dogs, cats & horses Oct. 6-12


GAINESVILLE Residents in
some Florida counties could soon get a
knock on their door from a young sales
person, but they won't be offering seeds,
wrapping paper or cookies.
In 18 Florida counties, including
Liberty County, local 4-H club members
will be selling a variety of pet treats for dogs,
horses and cats to raise money to support their
clubs. The pet treats sales will last from Oct. 6-26
in time for families to receive their treats before
the Christmas holiday.
Many 4-H clubs have successfully raised funds
with 4-H branded pet treats over the past two years
and the idea has been gaining momentum.
"It gives people in our community an
opportunity to buy a high-quality treat for pets
while supporting a good cause," said Liz Piquet,
volunteer leader for the Crazy 4 Canines 4-H
club. "Our youth raised $1,000 last year selling

the treats. They learned basic fundraising and
sales skills while telling others about 4-H."
Other Florida 4-H clubs selling the treats
include Broward, Citrus, Clay, Charlotte,
Duval, Gadsden, Lafayette, Liberty, Manatee,
Marion, Nassau, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Polk,
Santa Rosa, St. Johns, St. Lucie and St. Johns
counties and the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
The treats are supplied by Best In Show Pet Treats.
The Louisville, Ky.-based company has worked closely
with hundreds of 4-H groups testing and refining the
program. The treats sell for $4 per package and are
made in the U.S.
As part of the annual fundraising campaign, 4-H
members will also offer customers the opportunity
to donate a package of pet treats to a wide variety
of animal rescue organizations across the country,
including a special partnership donating treats to
military working dogs through SupportOurTroops.
org.
"4-H members have donated countless packages of
pet treats to animal shelters, humane societies, horse
and dog rescue groups, animal therapy organizations,
police K-9 units, police mounted patrols, and even
military working dogs serving in Iraq," said Jeanne
Hilt, president of Best In Show Pet Treats.

LCHS wins dogfight with Marianna 37-15


by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
The Liberty County Bulldogs won in a dogfight
with the Marianna Bulldogs thanks to a dominating
effort in the second half. Liberty won the Oct. 2
home game 37-15.
The Bulldogs trailed early when Marianna
returned an interception over seventy yards for f
a touchdown that gave MHS a 7-0 lead.
Liberty scored on a thirty yard Mike Lohse
field goal in the second quarter and the teams
went into the half with Marianna ahead 7-3. The
field goal was set up when quarterback Terrance
Evans ran wild in the backfield, scrambling awa\ fiom
defenders before launching a long pass downfield that 1mo\ ed
Liberty from the shadow of their own endzone.
In the second half, LCHS forced a Marianna punt and then
took control of the ball game. Liberty's first possession of the
second half ended quickly when Evans took a second do
snap, followed his blockers through the line and then sped
past the Marianna secondary for a 54 yard touchdown run
that gave Liberty a 10-7 lead.

Liberty then recovered a Marianna fumble on the
kickoff and scored again when Kevin McCray scored
aI rushing touchdown. Kevin McCray added another
third quarter score and Liberty ended the third
*, quarter ahead of Marianna 25-7.
Keith McCray and Daniel Deason added
fourth quarter scores for the final margin of
victory.
LCHS Head Coach Grant Grantham said he
was pleased to see his team bounce back and
\ make the necessary adjustments at the half.
"Our kids responded well to the challenge,"
Grantham said. "I think we've grown a lot as
a football team, but we've got a big challenge
ahead of us in Wewa and we need to continue
to grow and get better to have a chance in
that game."
The Bulldogs travel to Wewahitchka for
a district contest Oct. 9. Both teams are 0-1
in the district and the loser will have their
playoff chances dealt a severe blow.

Blountstown Tigers now 4-0 after


defeating Grace
by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
The Blountstown Tigers defeated the Graceville Tigers 14-3 in non-district
football action Oct. 2 in Graceville.
Blountstown scored first when Paul Mosley plucked a Graceville fumble off
the turf and scored just two minutes into the game. The fumble was the result of
a hit on a scrambling GHS quarterback.
Blountstown returned the fumble favor to Graceville later in the first half when
a BHS fumbled snap was recovered by Graceville inside their own ten yard line.
The fumble ended a BHS scoring threat, but Blountstown went into the half still
leading by seven.
Graceville started the second half with an onside kick that bounced off a BHS
player and into the hands of the home team. Graceville was able to convert the
turnover into a field goal that cut the lead to 7-3.
Blountstown responded to Graceville with a drive of their own that ground out
the clock and the yardage. The drive ended when P.J. Buggs carried the pigskin
in for Blountstown's second touchdown of the night.
Both teams had some success the remainder of the game moving the football
on the ground; however neither team could mount an effective scoring drive.
The win moves BHS to a perfect 4-0 on the year.
The Blountstown Tigers travel to Greensboro for a district contest against West
Gadsden Oct. 9. The Tigers are tied with Port St. Joe for first place in the district
with one district win each. West Gadsden comes into the game with a record of
0-4 having played all of their games against schools from larger classifications.

Note of apology
to the 1973 BHS State
Football Champions
In the haste of trying to get
ready for an early homecoming,
we accidentally left off 1973 as
the year of our first state football
championship in an article for the
local newspapers. Coach Tom
Freeman was the head coach of this
team and David Pitts was an assistant
coach. This state championship
was one of the high points of our
school's history and we truly regret
our misstatement of the facts.
We will use this as a lesson to our
students that even in the most trying
of times, everyone needs to be sure
and double-check information before
it is released to the public.
To all the team members, coaches
and fans, we sincerely apologize.
BHS Homecoming staff


There's a new if -
Tiger in town,
Salena Flowers 4 J
but Mrs. Flowers
as we know her.
She is our new
Algebra teacher coming
from Marianna. She
has a wonderful sense
of humor, great style
and always has a smile
on her face.
This week I had
a chance to sit down
with her and chat with
her. I asked her a lot
of random questions
about her life and we
had a few laughs. Mrs. BHS Al
Flowers is married to Sale
Mr. Jason Flowers;
their first child will arrive at the end
of the year. As a child she moved
around a lot because her father
was in the Navy. She was born in
Texas, lived in South Florida one
year, Virginia Beach for several
years, California three years, and
then she came to Marianna High
School for her senior year. She
was one of the first graduates of
the Chipola Bachelor's Program.
She taught Math in Marianna
for four years. Mrs. Flowers got
married and moved to Wewa on
Oct. 18, 2008. Her favorite subject
besides algebra is science and if she
weren't a teacher she would be a
song artist. Maybe we'll get to hear


*


I


-her sing one
day. Currently
her favorite
hobbies/sports
are music,
cooking and
Zumba. Her favorite
genre of music
would be Christian
Sand her favorite song
is "The Revelation
Song." Between
FSU and UF, her
favorite team is UF,
i/ Go Gators!! Mrs.
Flowers' favorite
Flower is the orchid.
As I said in the
ebra teacher, beginning, she has
a Flowers a great sense of
style. I asked what
her favorite clothes brand was
and I enjoyed her answer, "I shop
clearance," and I agreed, that's where
you find the best clothes deals a lot
of the time.
Mrs. Flowers is very different
from other teachers; it's in a good
way, though. Her teaching is very
understandable. Currently she is
trying to make a Math Remake of
the "Electric Slide." She was telling
us this in my 6th Period class. Mrs.
Flowers can be a little different at
times but I know that's the one thing
that we Blountstown High students
love about her. We are truly honored
to have Mrs. Flowers as one of our
new teachers.

Tuesday, Sept. 29 one of Florida's State
Representatives, Marti Coley, gave Altha School's
American Government classes a visit.
The seniors listened attentively as Mrs.
Coley explained the structure of the House of
Representatives. The seniors learned that the
Speaker of the House is the most important person
in the House, and he/she decides which committee
hears which bill. They also learned that in the State
of Florida, there are 120 House members, and Mrs.
Coley represents nine counties, including Calhoun
and Jackson.
After Mrs. Coley spent some time telling about
the things that influenced her into going into politics
and the main structure of the House, she gave the
students an opportunity to ask questions.
We appreciate Mrs. Coley taking some time out
of her busy schedule to visit Altha School.

said. "She can't feel her legs and we're
trying to find her a wheelchair," she said.
Cook said her daughter's hospital stay
was cut short because her insurance didn't
coverthe accident. She is expected to need
surgery on her back in the near future.
Tragically, Cook's brother died in a
similar accident in Jackson County in
1994.
Cook said that moments before last
week's crash, Weber was trying to steer
with her knees while lighting a cigarette.
The trooper said neither girl had their
seatbelt on. Weber was charged with
careless driving.
Tyus attends adult school at
Blountstown High School. Her mother,

2010 Farm Bill

programs
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's
Natural Resources Conservation Service
(NRCS) in Florida has set a cutoff date
of Oct. 30, to submit applications for
several voluntary conservation programs
that may help eligible participants pay
for conservation practices to prevent soil
erosion, improve water quality, restore
wetlands and provide habitat for wildlife.
The Environmental Quality Incentives
Program (EQIP) is a conservation program
that provides financial and technical
assistance to farmers and ranchers who
face threats to soil, water, air, and related
natural resources on their land. Through
EQIP, NRCS develops contracts with
agricultural producers to voluntarily
implement conservation practices to
address environmental natural resource
problems. Persons engaged in livestock or
agricultural production and owners of non-
industrial private forestland are eligible for
the program.
The Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program
(WHIP) is a voluntary program for
developing or improving high quality
habitat that supports fish and wildlife
populations of National, State, Tribal, and
local significance. Through WHIP, the
NRCS provides technical and financial
assistance to private and Tribal landowners
for the development of upland, wetland,
aquatic, and other types of wildlife
habitat.
The Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP)
provides technical and financial assistance
to private landowners and Tribes to
restore, protect, and enhance wetlands in
exchange for retiring eligible land from
agriculture.
Interested landowners should visit their
local USDA-NRCS field office staff or go
to www.fl.nrcs.usda.gov/programs for
more information on these programs.

Attending last week's award ceremony was, from left: Calhoun-Liberty Administrator Ron Gilliard, hospital employees
Ruth and Orville Eby, Virginia Williams and her husband, Laddie, who was honored that night.


How did he do it? One critical
step was recruiting key new
board members who each brought
special talents and abilities.
Next, he went after funding.
"He began a truly remarkable
process of acquiring assistance to
the hospital from the local, state
and federal levels of government
as well as from the citizens in the
community," Gilliard wrote in a
letter to the FHA.
"With cash flow critical, he set
up an innovative arrangement for
a $650,000 low interest loan from

the state, processed through the
city council; secured a $350,000
donation from the Calhoun
County Commission and a line
of credit from a local bank,"
Gilliard wrote. "He even obtained
equipment and supplies from
nearby urban medical centers.
He secured low interest loans and
grants from the USDA."
Williams personally assured
the staff they would "be taken
care of' if they would remain
with the hospital. "Amazingly,
many did!" according to Gilliard's
letter, which explained that back
pay was restored, small raises
were granted and key personnel
benefits were established.
Then he turned to the
community. Today, families and
organizations have improved
the appearance of the facility
through the hospital's "Adopt A
Room" program by decorating
patient rooms as well as the
lobby, entrances, dining hall and
chapel.
"Saving this hospital and over
100 jobs in this rural community,
his leadership is the singular
reason there remains a hospital
here today," according to Gilliard,
who recalls: "There was no cash,
no receivables, no credit, a dismal


physical plant, no equipment
upgrades, no morale, a terrible
(well-deserved) reputation, and
most importantly, very few
patients. His steady and skillful
stewardship during that time not
only prevented the hospital's
closure, but laid the foundation for
the truly remarkable turnaround
in 2008."
At an age when most have
settled into a comfortable
retirement, Williams remains
involved. "You've got to stay
active, you know," he says. "If
you sit down at home and don't
do nothing, you'll soon go to see
St. Peter."
Listing his priorities as, "The
Lord, my family and the hospital,"
he says his biggest reward is
when someone tells him how the
hospital saved their life or helped
a family member.
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital is
"just in its infancy stage," he says,
and he expects to see it continue
to grow and flourish.
Laddie Williams may not have
laid the foundation or put up the
walls of the hospital, but, like
his job at the hardware store, he
has helped pull together all the
elements needed to get the job
done.

Autumn weather makes it the best time to work in


by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County
October marks the start of
Florida's dry season. Autumn
is on its way and cooler, dryer
weather is just around the cor-
ner. Because of the nice weath-
er, October is one of the busiest
and best times to work in the
garden or landscape.
October is a good time to
prepare beds for the cool sea-
son flowers. As temperatures
drop, plant calendulas, dian-
thus, flowering cabbage and
kale, mums, pansies, petunias,
Shasta daisies and snapdrag-
ons.
Planting pansies will ensure
a colorful fall garden. Howev-
er, avoid planting them while
the weather is warm. Also, be
careful when fertilizing flower-
ing kale and cabbage. Excess
nitrogen can make them more
susceptible to cold damage.
Just about all of the cool
season vegetables can be suc-
cessfully started in the garden
during October. Most grow
and produce better when plant-
ed now, rather than planted in


the spring. You
can plant seeds
of beets, carrots,
kale, kohlrabi,
leek, mustard,
parsley, rad-
ish, spinach and
turnips. You
can also obtain
young plants and
establish brocco-
li, cabbage, col-
lards, onions and
strawberries.
The recom-
mended planting
time for straw-
berries might
seem odd to
gardeners who
are from other regions. In
Florida, we must use day-neu-
tral or short-day varieties and
plant them from early October
through the middle of Novem-
ber. They grow vegetatively
during the winter and produce
berries from early March until
early June.
Varieties of strawberries that
produce well under our condi-
tions include Camarosa, Sweet
Charlie, Oso Grande and Chan-
dler. Set plants twelve inches


apart in prepared beds or plant
them in planters, barrels or in
"strawberry jars."
Strawberry plants should
be destroyed after harvest and
replaced with new plants each
fall. They are not grown as
perennials here in Northwest
Florida because of disease is-
sues. Anthracnose fungus
builds up under our environ-
mental conditions, and will
eventually cause the plant to
decline and fail.


Finally af-
ter months of
rapidgrowth,
lawn grasses
are gradu-
ally slowing
down and
will eventu-
ally go dor-
mant with
the shorter
days and
cooler tem-
peratures.
Allow this
natural pro-
cess to occur
by withhold-
ing high ni-
trogen fertil-
izers. Encouraging growth this
late in the season will increase
the risk of your grass being
killed by harsh winter tempera-
tures.
Overseeding of the perma-
nent lawn with annual ryegrass
can be done during late October
and early November. Though a
well kept cool season lawn can
be attractive, it requires a com-
mitment. Regular mowing, ir-
rigation and a couple of light,
supplemental applications of


the garden
fertilizer will be required dur-
ing the winter in order to keep
the lawn looking its best.
Large patch, a fungal dis-
ease, can come and go all win-
ter if the weather is mild. It is
the disease most common as
the weather cools, especially
on St. Augustine. This fungus
generally is most active in Oc-
tober and November, especially
during rainy periods.
Areas of grass affected by
large patch can have a yellow-
ish or orange cast that then
turns tan or brown. Spread can
be rapid. Fortunately, the grass
often recovers in the spring,
but the disease also can kill the
grass. If you decide to treat,
fungicides labeled to control
lawn diseases are available at
your local garden supply store.
October is the month that
most pine trees shed their nee-
dles. Pine needles make excel-
lent mulch for flower, vegetable
and shrub beds. Pine needles
can be used alone or in combi-
nation with other organic ma-
terials. Pine needles are attrac-
tive, not easily removed from
beds by wind or rain, and don't
"mat down" excessively.


Upcoming Plantaholic Party and Plant Sale


B A B5


Extravaganza
Dates have been set for two
upcoming events sponsored by
the non-profit Gardening Friends
of the Big Bend, Inc. (GFBB).
GFBB's sole mission is to assist
and support the North Florida
Research and Education Center
(NFREC) of the University of
Florida, located in Quincy.
Gardening Friends of the Big
Bend is pleased to announce our
third Plantaholic Preview Party
will be held Wednesday, Oct.
21 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the North
Florida Research and Education
Center just off State Road 267.
This evening fund-raiser
includes party food and drinks
with a crowd of plant enthusiasts
bidding on silent and live auction
items. Pre-priced plants are also
for sale. Auction and sale items
include rare, unique, bodacious
and perhaps even bizarre plants
and accessories suitable for
our area. This event is a one-
of-a-kind evening with happy
gardeners helping the NFREC
with its research and educational
missions.
A $25 ticket for the evening
party and auction can be
purchased prior to October
21 from GFBB's website,
www.thegfbb.com from Sue
Watkins stwatkins@nettally.
com, (850)524-1329; or from
Jill Williams B419@aol.com
(850)663-2280. Tickets at the
door on Oct. 21 will be $30 each.
Pre-purchased tickets for GFBB


in Quincy Oct.
members are $20 each.
Following this, Gardening
Friends of the Big Bend will
sponsor an outdoor Plant Sale
Extravaganza on Saturday, Oct.
24 open and free to the public.
This event, starting at 8:30 a.m.,
is also held on the grounds of
the North Florida Research
and Education Center just off
State Road 267. Trees, shrubs,
flowers, and garden-related
items will be offered at more-
than-reasonable prices.
Thanks go to a number
of local wholesale and retail
nurseries and private individuals
as well as the NFREC for their
extraordinary donations of
plants and garden-related items.
This extravaganza is a fun,


21 & Oct. 24
relaxed event where everyone
can find something and we can
all add more 'green' to our North
Florida gardens.
Both the Plantaholic Party and
the Plant Sale Extravaganza will
be held at the NFREC location
on State Road 267 near I-10 exit
181. All proceeds from both
events will be used to support a
wide range of important projects
at NFREC that otherwise would
not have funding, including
educational programs, field days,
demonstration gardens and the
continuation of projects ranging
from new plant evaluations to
research on invasive plants.
Gardening Friends of the Big
Bend hopes to see you at one of
these upcoming events!

SCOPE*

Week of
Oct. 11 Oct. 17

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, satisfy your creative urges
and you'll find that the week is
much more enjoyable. You might
want to make whatever you take
on a solo project.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Taurus, you're buried in paperwork
or red tape this week and you'll
have to dig yourself out of the
mess. Don't let it get you down.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Don't be a fool, Gemini; think
about what you need to get
accomplished and make a plan
instead of simply diving in with
your eyes closed. A financial
venture falls through.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
You tend to think positively,
Cancer, but even you are having a
tough time seeing the bright side
of things this week. Just go with
the flow the best you can.

LEO-Jul23/Aug23
Leo, does it seem like your life is
mirroring that of a sitcom lately?
If the predicability is getting you
down, do something spontaneous
to change everything.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, others may scoff at your
advice. Keep in mind your own
prior youthful reluctance to fol-
low advice and rest assured that
your advice might be followed
down the road.

LIBRA-Sept 23/Oct23
Libra, that big event you've been
waiting for might finally arrive
this week. All of your patience
and perseverance will pay off as
you get your just desserts.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, despite a lot of changes in
your life, you are relatively even
keeled this week. Carry this at-
titude through the next few months
and you'll be a happy camper.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
A big change is in store, Sagit-
tarius. You thought you were ready
for it, but now you are having a
few second thoughts. Aquarius will
help you wade through the waters.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Others are worried that your
temperamental nature could put
a damper on some family plans,
Capricorn. Why not prove them
wrong and simply be on your
best behavior?

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Aquarius, you are caught between
feelings for your spouse or
romantic partner and your family.
How can you choose sides in this
situation? Tread very carefully.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
A sizeable dose of good fortune
lands in your lap, Pisces. Now
you just have to figure out how to
celebrate the good news.

Former Calhoun County resident Dove Thompson, who now resides in Cottondale, made several decorative cakes for the auction including these three: a race
track with toy cars, a bowling alley cake and a treasure chest filled with enticing chocolates.


Good cooks, great cakes and plenty of food

raise a lot of money for volunteer fire dept.


The Carr-Clarksville Fire De-
partment collected between
$3,000 and $4,000 (after deduct-
ing $1,500 for expenses) at Sat-
urday's annual fundraiser, thanks
to a number of hungry folks who
enjoyed plates full of chicken and
Boston butt at the gathering held
at Carr School.
One of the highlights of the an-
nual event is the cake auction,
where area cooks bring their tasti-
est and most elaborately-deco-
rated baked goods for sale. The
cakes are lined up on a table for
bidders to look over before open-
ing up their wallets. Around 15
cakes were auctioned off with
some bringing bids of $75 to $100,
according to Carr-Clarksville Fire


Department Chief Darryl O'Bryan.
A silent auction was conducted,
featuring items from businesses
and individuals including wood-
crafts and floral arrangements.
O'Bryan said the community
served by the fire department,
as well as the people of Calhoun
County, gave some strong support
to this year's event. He estimated
that between 400 and 500 people
attended.
His department will join the Ki-
nard Fire Department at the An-
nual Kinard Halloween Carnival,
planned for Saturday, Oct. 31,
to continue fundraising efforts
to keep firefighters supplied with
their necessary supplies and
equipment.

Consumers

are warned

about bogus

letter and

check scam
TALLAHASSEE -- Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson is warning consumers
about a bogus letter circulating
in Florida and across the United
States telling people they have
won money and including a
check in the mailing.
The letter has a check enclosed
for $985 and instructions on
how to claim a lump sum payout
of an $8,000 prize award. The
letter also says a tax payment
of $810 is required before the
lump sum payment can be sent
to the recipient. Recipients are
cashing the checks to pay the
tax and when the checks are
discovered to be counterfeit
several days later, consumers
are held liable by the banks
for the money. By then, the
consumers have already wired
the money to the scam artists.
The "Award Claim
Notification" letter has letterhead
from a legitimate marketing
company, Geisheker Group
out of Green Bay, Wisconsin,
but with erroneous contact
information. Geisheker Group
has been the victim of identity
theft and has posted a warning
on its website about the scam.
Company officials indicate they
have been fielding hundreds
of calls about the letter. The
counterfeit checks have the
name of a legitimate bank and
appear to be real.
The letter says the consumer
has a winning ticket for a
Consumer Rewards Program
and even lists the ticket number.
A contact name and number is
included in the letter but the
people answering are actually
part of the scam.
"We have seen different
versions of this bogus check
scam," Bronson said. "The
bottom line is if you receive a
letter indicating you have won
money from some unknown
entity and there is a check
included, you should be very
suspicious. The scam artists
often tell consumers they have
to pay taxes on the winnings
and that is how they are making
money off the scams."
Consumers who have
received the letter can file a
complaint with the Department's
Division of Consumer Services
atwww.800helpfla.com. To find
out more about the marketing
company's warning, log onto
www. geisheker. com.
