Without saying a word, Shiver
turned around and went to his
patrol car to get his camera,
telling himself, "Ain't nobody
going to believe this."
The deer moved around in the
small car as Shiver took a few
photos while trying to decide how
to get it out of the vehicle. He got
ready to deploy his taser when
the car's owner (and original
driver) stopped him, fearing
the shock might cause the large
animal to leave an even bigger
mess inside her vehicle. She-
demanded he shofit the animal.
He declined, realizing there had
to be a better way to handle the
unusual situation. *
Shiver opened the back two
doors of the car, let down the
passenger's seat and gave the
buck a few slaps on the rear
before it finally eased out.
"Hewentouttherearpassenger
door,.walked around the corner of
the car and kind of looked back at
us like we're crazy," said Shiver.
"He walked by my patrol car and
thenran into the woods."
But how did the dee1 get in the
car to begin with?
Shiver said the driver, an Altha
resident who asked that her name
not be used, was driving through
Sumatra around 9 p.m. when
she collided with the deer at
the intersection of C.R. 379 and
Hwy. 65.
She stopped the car to examine
the damage, which included a
broken headlight and bent front
left quarter panel. The deer was
lyingnearbyapparentlydead.
Apassingtruckdriverstopped
to check on the woman, who
told him she wanted the deer,
commenting that to leave it
behind "was a waste of good
meat."
The trucker agreed to help her
load it in the back seat of her car.
But first, he grabbed the animal
by the head anditwisted its neck to
ensure that it was dead. Believing


The deer looks through the window at a group gathered outside,


Torne"~~;~Zi~ l by our lot at


that he had broken its neck and
that it was indeed deceased, the
truck driver put the deer in the
car.
The woman returned to the
-road to licad home. About 20
minutes later while driving
through Orange something kicked
her in the back of the head. "She
turned.and looked and the deer
was awake in the back seat of
her car," Shiver said, adding,
"When the deer came to, he was
perturbed."
The woman drove onto the side
of the road, turned off the car and
got out, screaming hysterically


as she used a cell phone to call
for help. The noise tras heard by
folks in a nearby camp area who
came out on four-wheelers to see
what was happening.
"After 13 years in law
enforcement, I guess I've seen
everything," Shiver said.
The wayward buck kicked a
few holes in the lining of the car
roof when he woke up and tried
to escape.
"He probably should have been
cited for a seat belt violation,"
Shiver added. "Ifit ever happens
again, I'll be sure to give him a
ticket."

Wildfire prevention is

important year round
This summer consistent rainfall has dampened our area
reducing the droughtlevel and the threat of wildfire. These
rains have also had a positive effect on plant life causing
substantial growth. This increased growth has the potential
.to produce future fuel for wildfire.
With crisp fall winds not far away, now is the right time for
homeowners to keep their properties lean, clean, and green.
To be lean means to provide for fewer plants and wider
spacing of plants m the immediate vicinity of the house. Thick
vegetation leading up to the house provides a pathway for fire
to travel into the house. It is recommended that homeowners
establish a lean zone of 30'- 50' surrounding the home.
The clean part of this equation calls for the removal of.all
dead plant life and clearing of underbrush withm the 30'-50
defensible zone next to the home.
Keeping plants and vegetation green is the last part of this
equation. Under the right conditions any plant will burn.
However, research has shown that green healthy plants at
have been receiving adequate watering are much less likely to
urn an p m eriath dry dead lant at 1
Taking the time now to make sure dead yard debris and plants
are cleared and maintaining a clean defensible area around the
house will pay off down the road when we again experience
extreme dry conditions and the risk for wildfire increases.

Halloween is here. Time foi scary
stuff. Ghosts, goblins and witches.
Halloween is a pagan holiday based
on Celtic religion of Druidism. Reli-
gions aside, Halloween is a fun time
for children.
6* The scariest Halloween on.Wall
m Street occurred in 2008. Wall Street's
m financial ghosts, gobliris and witches


. are paid. Most Americans are scitibbing
along trying to niakg a payday that will
cover the rent or mortgage and Wall
Street toads are rolling in greenbacks.
This financial disaster has many fa-
thers, starting with President Reagan
. who began deregulating America's fid
hancial system. All presidents since Rea-
gan have followed lus lead of removing
restrictions on the activities of banks and
other financial institutions. Both Repub-


"tricked or treated" the American
people to near financial disaster. Even
more frightening is that they are still at it.
In inid-Septpmber 2008, America's financial system
was a heartbeat away from collapse. The problem wasn't
thaia bank somewhere had failed. The problem was that
America's financial house of cards was in free fall. The
cash flow from the housing market bubble that was fuel-
ing the high-risk, highly leveraged financial instruments
created by Wall Street was sputteijing to ahalt.
As Learned while getting a MBA degree, cash flow is
king. Any hiccup in the cash flow, particularly for highly
leveraged firms, means disaster. When a financial institu-
tion has a leverage ratio of 40 dollars for every dollar of
equity, then any interruption in cash flow is a disaster. .
If you woidd like to read a scary.book, read Andrew
Ross Sorkin's, "Too Big to Fail." Sorkin, a New York
Times financial reporter, has written a 544 page account
of how the financial crisis came about. Sorkin states that
the book is based on 500 hours of interviews with 200
people.
America's financial systein is in the hands offew peo--
ple. Some of them are gdod guys, sonie of them are bad
guys whose only goal is to make modey, lott of money.
10edia accounts, both print and electronic, of the fi-
nancial meltdown are superficial at best. How America
got into this financial mess is far too complicated to cov-
.
er in ten colismn inches of newsprint or a three-nunute
blurb from a television or radio talkillg head. So, there
is no reason to believe that the American people under-
stand the details of this event. It is not their fault.
What the public does know is that the government in-
tervened with billions of taxpayer dollars to save Wall
Street. The public knows that some people on Wall Street
were and are making millions of dollars in bonuses for
taking risk with their money. Banker or financial
gurus don't deserve the obscene amounts of money they


licans and Democrats are to blame for this disaster
The most damming deregulation occurred in 1999.
The Clinton administration ended the Glass-SteagallAct,
the Banking Act of 1933, which created the Federal De
posit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). The Glass-Steagall
Act regulated many financial activities and prevented
banks from becoming involved in investment banking
activities.
The 1999 Republican-contrilled congress replaced
the Glass-Steagall Act with the Gramm-Leach-Blifey
Act that also removed provisions of the Bank Holding
Company Act of 1956. Bank holding companies could
then engage in the full range of financial services. With-
out regulations to control greed, Wall Street began suck-
ing as much money as possible out of the American and
international financial systems.
President Obama has proposed regulating America's
financial system to prevent another greed driven melt-
down, but,:you guessed it, there is considerable resis-
tance from Wall Street, Republicans and some Demo-
crats. The idea of regulating Wall Street to prevent more
trouble strikes at the heart of the "market is always right"
crowd. Their brains are about to explode at the thought
of government intervention.
The Bush administration made the first interventibli
with $700 billion in TARP money in 2008. Obama fol-
loived suit with billions more. Now people are carping
about the national debt, but who caused the government
to borrow and spend all that cash? The very people wdo
are carping.
My prediction is that Congress will pass a watered-
down bill to regulate Wall Street, which will continue
to take risks andivithin five years America will'be on
the financial brink again. Moreover, everyone will be...
shocked, shocked, I say.

Retail gasoline prices spike;

Crude oil closes above $80
TAMPA (Oct. 25, ?009) Despite weak consumer demand and
ample fuel supplies, crude oil ofthe New York Mercantile Exchange
(NYMEX) posted its highest weekly closing price of 2009, $80.50
per barrel, pushing up wholesale and retail fuell prices. The national
average price of gasoline increased by 12 cents per gallon in the past
week.
The average price of gasoline in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee
increased by 17, 16, and I 3 cents per gallon respectively during the
same period.
The sustained rally for crude oil is driven by a weak U.S. dollar
that's drawing investors to commodities and crude oil, but, as Peter
Beutel, an analyst at Cameron Hanover rioted, "At some point the
bubble has to burst."
"Gasoline prices are still less than they were a year ago at this
time," said Gregg Laskoski, managing director, public relations,
AAA Auto Club South. "But, unless we see a change of direction
for the dollar, the current run-up for oil might last longer than many
economists and oil analysts expect."

Dear Valued Customers:

I would like to share some 1/ery important news. For months now we've been
talking about steps we're taking to put FairPoint onto stable financial footing by
cutting costs, generating new revenues, and reducing our debt burden. We have
begun revenue generation and cost-cutting initiatives and we continue to make
progress on a number of operational fronts.


We have explored a number of paths that would ultimately lead to a balance sheet
restructuring. I'm happy to announce we have reached a deal with more than 50
percent of our bank lenders which is expected to reduce our debt by approximately
$1.7 billion and we are using the tools provided by Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code to implement the deal. This will-make FairPoint more viable and competitive
than ever and position us to focus all of our efforts on customers, employees and
strategic growth plans.

For Our Customers Uninterrupted Service
FairPoint is open for business. During this process, we will continue to focus on
steadily improving customer service: Nothing about your contract will change,
and our customer service representatives are ready to respond to your questions,
comments, or requests. We will continue all advertised promotions and seek new

On behalf of everyone at FairPoint, we thank you -- our customers -- for your

and pre-season favorite. They left knowing they no
longer had the district lead ancithe Tigers were the only
undefeated team left in the district.
IBlouritstown survived an.early Shark attack as the
visitors scored on the opening kickoff to take a 7-0
lead. The Tigers responded with a drive of their own
that ended in a six-yard touchdown run by Caron Cox
to tie the game at seven after the extra point.

With less than 30 seconds to go in the ganie the Tigers
were forced to punt to Port St. Joe, but the Sharks fumbled
the ball and BHS recovered to seal the win and the district

FOUR TIPS ON HOW TO SAFELY CO-EXIST WITH SNAKES IN YOUR YARD


Beware of snakes in your grass...and garden!


non-venomous species, like
the Eastern Indigo Snake and
kingsnakes, eat venomous
snakes! Snakes also serve as
important prey for birds, and
other animals.
Several species of Florida's
snakes are now considered
threatened or endangered.
Even the commonly seen spe-
cies that seem to thrive in ur-
ban areas are at risk of being
killed by pets, lainmowers,

by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa county
.
I'm a noisy gardener., I try
to be as loud as possible to
chase away any wildlife that
might be lurking around. So,
it's a bit surprising that I've
had several close encounters
recently. Not with aliens but
with snakes, including a sight-
ing in my garage.
An increase in the number
- of snakes in the landscape is
to be expected. While the hu-
man population increases and
native habitats decrease, wild-
life is being squeezed out of
their natural areas. This often
leaves our landscapes as the
last remaining green spaces.
Despite the fear that many
people experience when they
encounter a snake, there is

families. The BrAlve Hotline
will connect people to these
new services as well as other
existing community services.
For example, in Tallahassee,
WorkforcePlusandtheAmerican
Red Cross Capital Area Chapter
have been granted BrAlve funds
to provide specialized support to
military families.
2-1-1 Big Bend is serving as
one of four Regional Centers that
will operate the Florida BrAlve
hotline. Each Regional Center
also answers a local 2-1-1 hotline.
All four Centers are accredited
by the Alliance of Information
and Referral Systems as well as
by the American Association of
Suicidology. In addition to the
four Regional Centers, several
other 2-1-1 hotline organizations

to the BrAlve statewide resource
directory. This free, public
searchable directory will be
available at www.floridabraive.

org There are hundreds of
programs in our communities that
can help our military as well as
non-military families," according
to Nicklaus. "I encourage the
familiesaffectedbydeployments
to Iraq and/or Afghanistan to
-
call our new BrAlve Hothne
for help. We are proud of our
military personnel and want to do
whatever we canto support them
and their families."
2-1-1 Big Bend answers
more than 60,000 calls each
year through its five, and now
six, hotline programs. The
regional 2-1-1 helpline program
is a,24/7 service that helped
more than 25,000 callers last
year. Thousands of people have
sought help for unemployment,
utilities, food, rent, and mortgage
payments. Mental heAlth
counseling and domestic violence
calls are also common to the
hotline. Callers to the hotline can
remain anonymous and all calls
-are confidential. Anyone can dial
2-1-1 for help with these issues
and other concerns.

TALLAHASSEE A new
specialized statewide hotline has

1 Big Bend, Inc. and other 2-1-1
hotline centers in Florida to assist
Floridian military personnel

been impacted by deployment
to Iraq and/or Afghanistan.
This new service, called the

by ti-ained counselors and is
available twenty-four hours a day,
seven days a week. The toll-free .
number is 1-877-BRAIVE-8 (1-

and confidential.
"Our counselors are well

''However, we know that the

Florida is home to 1.8 million
military veterans more than any
other state except California.
There are eleven active military
bases and several other military
installations.Whenpersonnelare
deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan,
their families face many unique
challenges. Upon return home,
the process of reintegrating to
civilian life creates additional
challenges. Amulti-tieredsystem
of help is slowly being created
throughout the country to help
serve the unmet needs related
to these transitions. However,
these services are fragmented and
inconsistentfromonecommunity
to another so a central hotline and
resourcedirectoryofservicesare
required to help military families
findthehelpthattheyneed.
The BrAlve project is funded
by three community foundations
in Florida -- The Commitnity
Foundation in Jacksonville,

Foundation of Venice, and The
Dade Community Foundation.
These foundations have provided

All kinds of wild and colorful creatures roamed the streets of Hosford at Saturday's parade and Fall Festival. Kids gathered along the road to collect
Halloween cahdy as trucks, foureheelers and floats rolled through town. After the parade, folks gathered at the Carnival to enjoy games, food and music.
