...one for the ages. In 1999, peo-
ple were jacked out of shape about
the coming year 2000. Many people
predicted doom and disaster. Com-
puters would melt, and Armageddon
was neigh. We would all go to Hell in
a hand basket. People hoarded food,
dusted off their Cold War nuclear bun-
kers and waited for the fateful ding of
midnight chimes signaling the arrival
of the year 2000 and disaster.
It didn't happen.


C 0
OR
Jerry Cox is a r
officer and writer w
background in
foreign policy issu
Okaloosa County.


The decade began in peace, prosperity reigned, the
Clinton administration left the government With a $230
d__ billion surplus, the first balanced budget in decades. Life
was peaches and cream for many. Credit was easy to ob-
^ tain, banks were lending money, people were urged to
buy homes, America was on a roll. But the good times
couldn't last. The real world kept poking its nose into
this place called America.
S. President Bush was elected, or as some would say
m selected by the Supreme Court. It didn't matter, Bush
Raw was the president. I don't think that history will treat
the George W. Bush eight-year reign with kindness. In
my view, the George Bush era was one of the darkest
in American history. Not so for his father, George H.
e W. Bush, who, in my view, did a great job. He finished
o President Reagan's "tear down the wall, Mr. Gorbachev"
effort and ended the Cold War.
lp Bush Senior had, and still has, a good worldview. His
downfall was twofold. One, he didn't court the rightwing
evangelicals, and he made the statement, "Read my lips;
- no new taxes." Unfortunately, circumstances required
q u more taxes, and his Republican brethren, particularly the
rightwing evangelicals that he ignored, fried him when
he increased taxes. Bush Senior should have had a sec-
ond term.
Well,George W. Bush recognized his father's error, and
- he rode the "recovered alcoholic, born again Christian"
horse all the way to the finish line. His presidency will
be marked by 9/11, the war in Iraq, war in Afghanistan,
Guantanamo, torture, eavesdropping on Americans...
Mr. Bush campaigned on peace, diplomacy and as a
uniterr," but he had war on his mind when elected. Bush's
first secretary of the treasury, Paul O'Neill said about
Bush in his book, The Price of Loyalty, "That from the
very beginning there was a conviction that Saddam Hus-
sein was a bad person and that he needed to go." O'Neill
added, "Going after Saddam was topic A 10 days after
the inauguration eight months before Sept. 11."
The CIA warned Bush in an August 6,2001 Presiden-
tial Daily Briefing (PDB) that al Qaeda was planning
attacks on buildings with airplanes. Bush allegedly said
to the briefer, "You have covered your ass, now what do
you have." Bush did nothing and 9/11 occurred. There is


a long list of Bushisms, but it's over. The
\ PDB is on the Internet. Read it.
I'S Mr. Obama was elected president with
N ER a promise of change. So far, Mr. Obama
has not provided enough change for the
retired military lunatics on the left and too much change
ith an extensive
domestic and for the lunatics on the right. Not a good
es. He lives in sign for the beginning of a new decade.
Unless there is some epiphany among
Sthe America people, particularly on the
extreme right and left, the next decade
promises to be as dark as the Bush era.
Americans need and deserve a break from the strife
and rancor of political parties. The Founders devised a
republic with representative government. Nice try, but
representative government doesn't seem to be working
so well. The Republicans and Democrats are acting like
the Hatfield and McCoys. Feuding, shotguns blasting,
taking no prisoners. But the American people are prison-
ers of this foolish political feud.
While the Congress, particularly the Senate, is fum-
bling the healthcare issue and most everything else they
touch, other nations, particularly China, are bolstering
their position in the international community. China has
limited energy sources, and recognizing this, has made
serious inroads in the economies of South America and
Africa. Venezuela is selling 630,000 barrels of oil daily
to the Chinese with the amount expected to increase to
a million barrels per day. The Chinese have made agree-
ments to buy oil and natural gas from Iran, Iraq and Af-
rican nations along with straight economic deals with
many other countries.
The Chinese are building relations with nations
around the world. They need energy sources, they pay
good money, they bunld infrastructure in emerging na-
tions, all of which solidifies their international relation-
ships. While the Chinese are eating our economic lunch,
the U.S. Congress is embroiled in political one-upman-
ship to win the next election. The healthcare boondoggle
is a good example.
While I was writing this column, a relative sent me
a short piece about two horses. One was blind, but the
other horse was the eyes for both. The horse that could
see wore a bell and the blind horse followed the sound
of the bell. The blind horse had faith that the horse that
could see would not lead him into danger. The piece end-
ed with the following quote that I think is good advice
for all of us. It is a good way to start a new year and a
new decade.
Live simply,
Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly......
Leave the rest to God

Four New Year's

Resolutions our

representatives

[ should be making
New Year. Resolutions. From the root word "reso-
* lute." Mr. Webster defines resolute as: "firm in purpose
or belief; characterized by firmness and determination."
I would like to propose to you, our readers, and de-
mand from our representatives that they make the fol-
lowing New Year's Resolutions, and that they stand firm
in the purpose of those resolutions and stay determined
to realize that they are already sworn and duty bound to
keep these resolutions even though they have not in the
past.
1. I will read the entire Constitution of the United States
of America EACH and
every New Year's
Eve and EACH and The View from

(Perhaps they will not forget why they were elected and
what their job really is. To REPRESENT.us, not lead us,
not tell us what is best, but to work FOR us.)
3. I will remember EACH and every New Year's Eve
and EACH and every Fourth of July that the American
People are already severely and unconstitutionally over-
taxed and I will pass no further taxes on them, hidden or
otherwise. Further, I will work relentlessly to reduce the
taxes already in place.
4. I will pass no laws that I exempt myself from and I
will place myself under all laws already in existence the
same as every other citizen of this country. After all, a
citizeri is what I am. Nothing more and nothing less.
I suppose that a mere four resolutions don't seem like
much but I truly believe that these four would make all
the difference in the world.

Poachers pay the price for stealing

from us all following recent arrests


Florida has deer hunting
seasons that last almost five
months and liberal bag limits
compared to some other states,
but for some people that's just
not enough. They want more
and are willing to break the law
to get it.
Hunting rules are in place to
protect the resource so it will
be available for all who want to
hunt lawfully. The rules are not
arbitrary but, in fact, are based in
science and are among the tools
our biologists use to manage deer
herds to be healthy and ample.
What's really troubling is
those who break the law either
don't know or don't care they are
stealing from law-abiding people.
And these few bad apples give all
hunters a bad name.
Take for example the seven
young people Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) law
enforcement officers arrested
recently. The oldest one was
23; the youngest 17. They were
arrested for a variety of criminal
charges related to unlawful
hunting, including taking deer at
night with gun and light, felony
trespass, hunting from a right-of-
way, and using the wrong kind of
fire arm.
This particular situation
happened in Central Florida,
but it happens everywhere in the
state and can have a devastating
effect on our deer populations.
In this case, the seven people


Boaters pour
A four-year study ofFlorida's
boating facilities and the
economics of boating in this
state is just in, and the numbers
are enough to make your head
swim.
For instance, Florida boaters
spent $3.384 billion on boat trips
in 2007. That's on top of the $5.15
billion they spent for repairs,
marina expenses and other costs
not associated with specific boat
trips.
To put those numbers into
perspective, consider this. If a
business opened 2,000 years ago
and made $1,000 per day since
then, it still would have more than
seven centuries to go before it
made its first $ billion, according
to David Harding, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation

the seven, FWC officers spent
weeks investigating, interviewing
and gathering evidence before
putting together an investigative
packet and presenting it to the
state attorney's office.
In this instance, the state
attorney's office agreed the
officers put together an excellent
case with supporting evidence
and agreed to prosecute.
Illegal hunting, better
described as poaching, is cheating
the system. FWC officers have
dedicated their lives to protecting
our natural resources and spend
countless hours trying to bring
these cheaters to justice. One
of their key tools is the FWC's
Wildlife Alert Hotline. This is a
special, toll-free phone number
that citizens can call to report
hunting and other activity they


think may be illegal. Callers don't
have to give their names, and they
can call 24-hours a day. Jot this
number down and keep it handy
so you can help us protect our
resources from those who choose
not to obey the law: 1-888-404-
3922.
The information ordinary
citizens like you provide very
often leads our officers to the
bad guys the ones breaking
the hunting laws and stealing
from those who choose to obey
the laws. When these bad guys
are arrested, the hotline caller
is eligible for a reward. That's
how officers found out about the
young poachers in this recent
case.
This case is not yet over, but
already some of the defendants
have pled guilty, and. as part
of their plea agreement, lost
their hunting privileges for three
years. They also must perform
community service, were placed
on probation for a couple of
years, and paid fines and court
costs exceeding $600.
Others pled not guilty and have
opted for their day in court. A
few others have not yet had their
initial hearing.
One of the great things about
living in the United States of
America is that we enjoy the
finest judicial process in the
world. Anyone charged with a
crime is entitled to his or her
day in court even accused
poachers.

Zac Eikeland is still playing with the Christmas gift he got two years ago a Boston
Terrier he calls Chief. "They're best friends," says Zac's mom, Cayla Eikeland. The
pair enjoy riding on a golf kart around their home at Lake Mystic in Bristol and after
a busy day of playing, mom tucks seven-year-old Zac and his pup in bed together.
"Zac feeds him and helps bathe him," mom says. When Zac's Iusy, the dog shares
his affections with the other family pet, a cat called Kitty. The pair often snuggle up
on the couch. The family celebrated Chief's second birthday on Sept. 5 with a party
that included a cake shaped like a dog bone and five canine guests, along with six or
seven human friends. For Christmas, Chief got some doggie treats and a stuffed toy
from Santa. NIKI BARBER PHOTO

Court order recommends managed
mediation program for foreclosures
TALLAHASSEE- Florida CFO Alex Sink commended the Florida
Supreme Court order recommending a statewide managed mediation
program for Florida's homeowners. Given her previous work to aid
Floridians struggling with foreclosure, CFO Sink was tapped by Chief
Justice Peggy Quince to provide a delegate on the Task Force that
developed these recommendations.
"With Florida facing the worst foreclosure crisis in the nation,
our state must take meaningful action to help Floridians stay in their
homes, and I commend the work of the Task Force and Supreme
Court," said CFO Sink. "Requiring a uniform mediation program
is an important step to improve
communication between
homeowners and their lenders,.
something vitally important as
we work to provide real relief to
struggling residents."
CFO Sink has started two i
initiatives to bring real, tangible
help to Florida homeowners facing
foreclosure, including the Florida
Housing Help initiative that H appy
holds workshops for homeowners
across the state. In 2009,- CFO
Sink's Department of Financial I
Services held 79 Florida Housing
Help workshops across Florida,
helping more than 12,000 Florida T
homeowners connect with their Thank you f
lenders or housing counselors.
CFO Sink also called for the Our family is
creation of the Florida Attorneys
Saving Homes program, which of this won
pairs volunteer lawyers with
Florida homeowners who are ////
behindontheirmortgagepayments,
to help these homeowners try and
find solutions with their lenders.
Over 1,000 lawyers across the
state have volunteered their time
for the program.

My New Year's Resolution,
I know I do, a new year's resolution is a goal or some-
thing you want to stay doing after the new year.
One of my resolutions is to stop eating so much can-
dy. I try to stay away from the kitchen. One day I didn't
eat any candy for the whole day. I was very proud, I felt
like a million bucks.
Another resolution is recycling, I don't throw away
my water bottles and I clean up the park. One time I
cleaned the whole park. So great, I felt after that.
Now you know that we all have resolutions, 2010
awaits.
Tyler L.

My New Year's Resolution,
My New Year's Resolution is to be nice to others: I
always have to be polite to my family. I feel good when
I be polite to people. So you should always be polite to
your family.
Jeff

My New Year's Resolution,
Yps it is true, this is the new year, it's the perfect time
to make a resolution.
One of my New Year's Resolutions is to keep my
room clean. To help me do this I can not leave anything
on the floor. I can also organize it. I enjoy organizing
thing. I think it is very fun.
A couple years ago I kept my room very organized. I
put my shoes in my closet and I put my books nice and
neat. I loved how clean it was. But I haven't kept it
clean lately.
Another resolution making is to try more foods.'Some
ways I can do this is to go to different restaurants. An-
other way is to get my mom to cook a bigger selection of
foods. I-really think this could work.
I think these resolutions will be a good way to began
a new year.
Annika

My New Year's Resolution,
Ring-Ring, Ring-Ring, 2010 is here. What's your
resolution for the new year? My first resolution is to
turn in all my papers by the end of nine weeks so I want
get in bad trouble and can have all A's and B's. Then I
can get whatever I want for the rest of my life and on
Christmas day.
My second resolution is to study I would like to study


New Year's


Resolution


















from Mrs. Forsberg's
4th grade class at Blountstown
Elementary School



for every test. I will study for all my test so y teacher
can be proud of me.
Jamarious E.


My New Year's Resolution,
My resolution is to talk less during class and how am
I going to do that? It is simple, just stick to your resolu-
tion. Here are two resolutions I am going to stick to.
Just the other day my neighbor was talking to me
while the teacher was talking and she keep on talking.
So I told her to stop talking so I did not get in trouble by
the teacher and she stopped and I did not get 'in trouble
by the teacher for talking.
This is my other resolution, one day I was doing my
work and the person next to me keep on talking and talk-
ing, sp Iignored her so the teacher would not think I was
talking to her then the teacher told her to stop talking and


she said that I made a good choice of nottalking back
and ignoring her.
Hunter

My New Year's Resolution,
One resolution I want to fulfill is helping my mom
clean the house. One way I can help her is to dust the
shelves and tables. I can also vacoom the floor. Once
when my mom cleaned the whole house by herself she
was so tired. I had to help her out of the chair when she
sat down. I'll be so happy when I help her in the house.
Another resolution can be try to keep my room clean,
like not leaving trash in the floor and making my bed
when I'm not in it. Once my room was so dirty it looked
like clothes were touching the roof. I'll be happy when
I clean it up.
Nick

Ring-Ring-Ring 2010's here! Bo you have a resolu-
tion for the New Year?
My resolution is going to be me being a better help-
er. To accomplish this goal I need to help people do
things like help clean the house. A couple of days ago
me and my mom were trying to get the house decorated
for Christmas and my mom was getting stressed because
she had the whole house clean and was doing it all by
herself. So, I said "I'll help you so it will get done fast-
er." She said "ok" so I started cleaning the house form
top to bodom. I cleaned the mantel, the fireplace and
we have a big miror in our livingroom and I cleaned that
too. I hope I'm a good helper. And I'll try to be a better
helper in 2010.
Bailey Johnson

My New Year's Resolution,
I need to work harder on my school work. I really re-
ally want and 'A' really badly! One time I really thought
that I would get a 'B' but...I didn't That 'A' encourages
me to work harder.
I also need to help around the house more when my
mom's tired and the house is dirty. I will clean up'and
when she wakes up she will be amazed. One time I
cleaned my room, living room, kitchen and bathroom,
she was so happy I could tell.
Those were my and still are and always will be my
New Year Resolutions.
Reyna Morales


My New Year's Resolution,
Is to folow directions so when anybody give you directions you
should listen or take notes. If you teacher gives you directions to
a puzzel and she says we not going to use this piece but you just
don't listen. So when you ask her this piece does not fit she's go-
ing to tell you, you should have listened to the directions are on the
puzzel. It's important to folow directions.
My other resolution is to please the teacher because it makes her
happy. Also because she may be feeling down and you do some-
thing to make her happy. Supose if the teacher was crying and you
went over to her and patted her and said what's wrong? She says I
can't talk about it so you go fix her some coffee and bring it to her
and say are you alright. She would say I am happy now you did a
nice favor and made me happy, thank you.
Now that you heard my story think about what I said and how I
encouraged you to make a New Year's resolution.
Jherico

My New Year's Resolution,
My New Year's Resolution is to watch less TV. So I'm going to
un-plug it. One time I un-plugged it for one day and I dittent even
watch it one time.
My second New Year's Resolution is to make good grades. To
make good grades I could study more. One time, I spent two hours
studying for a test and I made an A+. I hope my New Year's Reso-
lution will work.
Rachel

My New Year's Resolution,
2010 is almost here! My resolution is to read more and how I
can do that is read AR books. Like sometime I read my reading
book. I read chapter books sometime to.
My next New Year's Resolution is to become a better helper and
how I will earn it is to help people get where they need to go. Walk
people down the hall. Walk people acroust the street. I hope you
have a New Year's Resolution and if you do earn that goal.

Can fitness video games make a

difference; Applesauce vs. apples


Q: Do active video games
such as Wii count toward rec-
ommended amounts of physi-
cal activity?

A: Playing video games that
involve movement and in-
crease a player's heart rate
and breathing noticeably
would be considered moder-
ate physical activity. Mod-
erate physical activity feels
like you are exerting yourself
5 or 6 on a scale of 0 to 10.
Another sign of moderate-in-
tensity activity is that you can
talk but not sing. Research-
ers are just beginning to ob-
jectively study the impact of
active video games on over-
all level of physical activ-
ity and fitness, mostly among
children and teens. Results
are mixed, but a few studies
suggest that games such as
Wii boxing and Dance Dance
Revolution played at skill
level 2, do involve moderate
activity. Others, such as Wii
bowling and golf and Dance
Dance Revolution played
at the lowest skill level in-
volve lower levels of activity,
though clearly a step up from
the more sedentary activity of
watching television. Actually,
the intensity of activity con-
sidered moderate for any in-
dividual depends on his or her
level of fitness. So for some
people whose sedentary life-
style, illness or excess weight
has led to a low level of fit-
ness, even the less demanding
video games involving whole
body movement may actually
be moderate activity. Recom-
mendations for lower cancer
risk and better overall health
advise us all to accumulate 30
minutes of moderate physical
activity daily; those who seek
weight loss will get better
results by working up to 60
minutes a day. Tune in to your
body signals to determine if
what you play would be con-
sidered moderate activity or if
it is simply decreasing seden-
tary time (a separate but also
worthy goal).

Q: Is applesauce as good
a source of antioxidants as
fresh apples?

A: Unsweetened applesauce
is a nutritious, low-calorie
source of natural antioxi-
dant plant compounds, but
not as rich a source as fresh,
unpeeled apples. Making ap-
plesauce results in a loss of
about 30 percent of apples'
total antioxidant content and
about half of their quercetin

(a particular antioxidant com-
pound that's been linked with
good health). Much of that
loss also occurs when peeling
an apple, but some additional
loss may come in the heat-
ing and other processing in
the production of applesauce.
Applesauce and peeled apples
contain only about half the di-
etary fiber ofunpeeled apples.
However, because apples are
so concentrated in antioxidant
phytochemicals, even these
losses leave applesauce high-
er in antioxidants than many
other vegetables and fruits,
so it's still a good choice. For
new ways to include apples in


your diet, try them in green
and fruit salads and cooked
with vegetables such as car-
rots, winter squash and sweet
potatoes.
***
The American Institute for Can-
cer Research (AICR) is the can-
cer charity that fosters research
on the relationship of nutrition,
physical activity and weight
management to cancer risk, in-
terprets the scientific literature
and educates the public about
the results. It has contributed
more than $91 million for inno-
vative research conducted at uni-
versities, hospitals and research
centers across the country. AICR
has published two landmark re-
ports that interpret the accumu-
lated research in the field, and is
committed to a process of con-
tinuous review. AICR also pro-
vides a wide range ofeducation-

Americans learn to make dietary
changes for lower cancer risk.

Hosford School to mark Arbor

Day with planting ceremony
A tree planting Aill be done in recognition of Florida Arbor Day
at the Hosford Middle School Arbor Day in Florida is traditionally
celebrated on the third Friday in January; this year that day is
January 15th.
Students and teachers at the Hosford Middle School will be
involved along with foresters and forest rangers from the Florida
Division of Forestry in planting a tree on the school grounds to
commemorate Arbor Day.
Arbor Day has its roots in 1872 when the first tree planting day
was carried out in the state of Nebraska, this day was the idea of the
journalist J. Sterling Morton. In 1874 the first official Arbor Day in
Nebraska was proclaimed by the governor and was celebrated on
April 20th that year. Since then Arbor Day has spread across the
country until today it is celebrated in all fifty states in the United.
States as well as 32 other nations around the world.

New rules provide protection for

stressed sharks in Florida waters


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has approved a series
of rules to enhance its long-
standing policy to protect stressed
shark populations in Florida
waters. These rules also are
generally consistent with recent
management measures that have
been implemented for sharks in
coastal waters from Florida to
Maine.
Sharks have been strictly
regulated in Florida since 1992
with a one-fish-per-person/two-
fish-per-vessel daily bag limit for
all recreational and commercial
harvesters, a prohibition on
nearly two dozen overfished or
rare shark species, and a ban on
the cruel and wasteful practice of
harvesting only shark fins (called
finning).
"Florida has been a leader in
shark management efforts," said
FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto,
"and we are now bolstering our
shark management rules to help
ensure the sustainability of our
marine ecosystem that relies in
part on maintaining healthy shark
populations."
The new FWC rules prohibit
harvest of sandbar, silky and
Caribbean sharpnose sharks from


News from The Florida
Fishb and Wildlife
Conservation Commission


state waters. Sandbar sharks are
considered overfished and are
experiencing overfishing, which
means that fishing pressure is
too high to be sustainable. Silky
sharks are highly vulnerable to
overexploitation, and Caribbean
sharpnose sharks do not occur in
waters off Florida, so adding this
species will have no effect on
harvesters in state waters.
The rules also establish a
54-inch fork length minimum
size limit for all sharks, except
Atlantic sharpnose, blacknose,
bonnethead, finetooth and blacktip
sharks and smooth dogfish. This
will help protect the juveniles of
14 species of sharks in Florida
waters. The species where no size.


limit is required are considered to
be at healthy population levels or
don't warrant a minimum-size
limit.
In addition, the rules prohibit
the removal of shark heads and
tails at sea allow only hook-and-
line gear to harvest sharks, and
make other administrative and
technical rule changes.
These rules take effect in mid-
January.
In a related action, the FWC
has proposed a draft rule that
would prohibit all recreational
and commercial harvest of lemon
sharks from Florida waters.
Lemon sharks are slow-
growing, produce relatively
few offspring and are highly
susceptible to fishing pressure,
especially when they aggregate in
shallow waters close to the shore.
The Commission's proposed
action is intended to limit the
potential of dverharvesting lemon
sharks in state waters.
A final public hearing on the
proposed lemon shark rule will
be held during the February FWC
meeting in Apalachicola.
The presentations on shark
management and lemon sharks
used at the meeting are available
online.


Atlantic grouper & reef fish rules approved


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
approved rules consistent with
federal regulations to address
overfishing of grouper in the
Atlantic Ocean and to encourage
anglers -to help protect Atlantic
reef fish when releasing them to
the water.
Stock assessments indicate
Atlantic gag, red andblack grouper
are undergoing overfishing, which
means fishing pressure is too high
to be sustainable. Measures have
been implemented already in
Atlantic federal waters (beyond
3 miles from shore) to reduce the


harvest of these species. Nine
other kinds of shallow-water
groupers also were included in
this action to reduce the incidental
catch and discard mortality of
gag, red and black grouper.
The new FWC rules for
Atlantic grouper in state waters
are consistent with the federal
rules. They establish a three-
fish-per-person aggregate daily
recreational bag limit for all
grouper in Atlantic and Monroe
County state waters, prohibit
the captain and crew of for-hire
vessels from retaining any species
in the aggregate grouper bag


limit, and allow anglers to keep
no more than one gag or black
grouper combined in Atlantic and
Monroe County state waters.
In addition, the rules prohibit
all harvest of shallow-water
groupers (including gag, black
grouper, red grouper, scamp, red
hind, rock hind, coney, grasby,
yellowfin grouper, yellowmouth
grouper and tiger grouper) from
Jan. 1 April 30 in Atlantic and
Monroe County state waters. This
spawning season closure applies
to all recreational shallow-water
grouper harvest and lengthens
the previous two-month closure
to commercial grouper fishing in
the Atlantic.
"These rules are intended
to help speed the recovery and
rebuilding process for Atlantic
grouper and reduce the likelihood
of harvest overruns and possible
additional fishing restrictions
in federal waters," said Rodney
Barreto, FWC Chairman.
The Commission also
approved a federal consistency
rule that requires dehooking tools
to be aboard commercial and
recreational vessels for anglers
to use as needed to remove hooks
from Atlantic reef fish.
"Dehooking tools are a proven
way to limit the handling of fish
and help increase the odds that
fish will survive when they are
released," Barreto said.
These rules take effect in
mid-January. The presentations
on grouper and dehooking tools
used at the Commission meeting
are available online.


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Cominission
(FWC) voted to elevate public
awareness of the importance of
Florida bonefish by declaring it
a saltwater game fish.
"Bonefish are one of the major
reasons Florida is 'The Fishing
Capital of the World,"' said FWC
Chairman Rodney Barreto. "We
took this action to emphasize how
important the bonefish fishery
is to Florida anglers, visitors
and South Florida's recreational
fishing industry."
It is illegal to commercially
harvest and sell bonefish in
Florida, and sport anglers are
allowed to keep only one bonefish
18 inches in fork length per day.
To further protect bonefish
populations in Florida, the


Commission also directed
staff to develop a draft rule for
consideration in February that
would add all species of bonefish
found in Florida waters to FWC
rules, extend FWC bonefish
regulations into federal waters,
and require. that bonefish be
landed in whole condition.
"Bonefish are one of the
premier sport fisheries in Florida
and are known as 'grey ghosts
of the flats' because they are
stealthy, fast-swimming fighters
that are challenging to catch,"
said Barreto. "That's why
we recognize that conserving
Florida's bonefish resources will
ensure that anglers worldwide
can continue to enjoy fishing for
this special species."

FWC seeks input on the Miami blue


Only the luckiest among us
have ever seen the delicate blue
of the Miami blue butterfly. But
to save them from extinction,
more than luck is needed. The
Miami blue's fragile hold on its
diminished coastal habitat in
Florida requires diligent work
to increase its numbers to a safe
level for future sustainability.
For that reason, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) will begin
updating the management plan
for this rare butterfly that calls
Florida home.
"We've received new
information over the past few
years, and management of the
Miami blue must be revamped
to address the best possible
conservation measures for its
survival," said David Cook, the
FWC biologist who heads up
the Miami Blue Management
Plan team. "More importantly,
we want the Miami blue to
thrive."
The FWC requests
information on the status and
conservation needs of the
Miami blue. It also asks the
public to comment on any
economic, ecological and
social factors that should be


considered in the management
of the species.
Once, this thumbnail-sized
butterfly fluttered as far north
as Hillsborough County on the
Gulf Coast and Volusia County
on theAtlantic Coast. Suspected
culprits, such as habitat
degradation, fragmentation
and loss, and pesticide and
herbicide spraying, relegated
the Miami blue to the Keys.
After the devastation of
Hurricane Andrew in 1992,
scientists believed the butterfly
was gone forever.
Much excitement
accompanied the discovery of
a small colony of 50 Miami
blue butterflies in Bahia Honda
State Park in the Keys in 1999.
The FWC listed the species
as endangered in 2002 in an
emergency action after the
North American Butterfly
Association petitioned the
agency. The FWC developed
a management plan in 2003 to
ensure a stable or increasing
population to a level not
requiring the endangered
designation. Again, scientists
were encouraged by the
discovery ofanotherpopulation

National Wildlife Refuge in
2006. A volunteer, on a walk
with a refuge biologist, noticed
the population.
Ann Morkill, manager of the
Key West National Wildlife
Refuge, counts herself among
the lucky few who have seen
this unique butterfly.
"It's very exciting to see
this population," Morkill said.
"We hope this species -can
persist in protected areas. This
new discovery also provides
butterfly researchers with the
opportunity to expand their
genetic studies on a population
we didn't know existed until
just a few years ago."


The FWC has concentrated
its efforts in conjunction with
several partners, such as the
University of Florida, the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service and
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, to
monitor existing populations
and research the possibility
of raising the butterfly in
captivity and then releasing
it into the wild. Since 2003,
there have been inroads and
some setbacks, but the work
continues. The McGuire
Center for Lepidoptera and
Biodiversity at the University
of Florida, with funding from
the FWC arid other sources,
has been successful-in breeding
the Miami blue in captivity.
"We keep a large captive
colony," said Jaret Daniels,
assistant professor of
entomology at UF and a
conservation biologist. "We use
the captive-bred Miami blues
for research, reproduction and
reintroduction."
However, disappointment
has met the scientists when
the captive-bred butterflies are
released into the wild they
are unable to survive so far, but
that doesn't worry Daniels.


butterfly
"Conservation and recovery
take time, trial and error and
luck," Daniels said. "If we do
good work and good research,
we can learn and apply it to
other organisms as well."
Daniels said the Miami
blue butterfly provides an
opportunity to educate the
public about an endangered
species. The species can be
seen at Bahia Honda State
Park in a way other endangered
species cannot, and that can go
a long way to helping people
understand the importance of
all species to an ecosystem's
survival.
"We're trying to successfully
reintroduce and find out why
the initial attempts have failed,"
Cook said. "That's one reason
it is vitally important that the
public contact us with any
information about Miami blue
sightings."

S by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County
This is the time of year when
we look towards the future for
personal improvement and goal
setting. The backyard gardener
should be no different. The New
Year is a great time to make some
resolutions that will benefit your
landscape.
This year, plan to be extra-
good to the environment with
this handy list of achievable
resolutions.
Install a rain barrel
Rainwater harvesting is al-
ways beneficial, whether the wa-
ter is used to water one house-
plant or an entire garden. Also,
the act of collecting rainwater
can be an inspiration to find
other ways to conserve water
around the home. It's a great
way to save water and money on
your water bill.
Check your irrigation system
Did you know that the typical
homeowner uses up to 50% of a
home's total water consumption
for irrigation, often over-irrigat-
ing?
If you have a 5,000 square-
foot yard and use an in-ground
sprinkler system, you may be
spending $5 to $25 every time
you irrigate. Overwatering the
lawn and landscape is a com-
mon mistake many homeowners
make.
Be sure that you are not un-
knowingly wasting water by run-
ning a faulty irrigation system.
Check for broken or leaking
sprinkler heads.
Redirect sprinklers that are
obstructed by plant parts or grass
blades.
Don't mix sprinkler types. For
example, having spray heads and
rotors in the same zone. These


two sprin-
kler types
have differ-
ent applica-
tion rates,
and each is -
generally in-
tended to ir-
rigate differ-
ent types of
plants. When
stationary
shrub spray
heads and
rotating turf
sprinklers
are used in
the same irri-
gation zone,
the shrubs
usually end
up being
overwatered. i. -
Schedule
waterings
according
to plant needs. Irrigation con-
troUers are often set to run too
frequently or for too long per
irrigation event. Consequently,
turfgrass and landscape plants
are over-irrigated, water is wast-
ed, fertilizers are washed away,
and diseases are promoted. Wa-
ter only as needed.
Be sure to calibrate your irri-
gation system to determine how
long to run the system so that
it delivers the amount of water
recommended for your area. Ir-
rigation systems can be very dif-
ferent and could be delivering
too much, not enough, or just the
right amount of water, depend-
ing on the type of irrigation sys-
tem and the zone being watered.
Free compost
Converting yard debris to
compost has many benefits. It is
an environmentally friendly way
to reduce the amount of solid
waste that must be disposed of,


and it provides useful and ben-
eficial products for yards and
gardens. Compost is an excellent
soil amendment that improves
the health and structure of both
sandy and clay soils. It can be
applied on'top of soil as mulch.
Mixed with other components,
it makes a good potting soil and
some gardeners brew it in wa-
ter to make a compost "tea" for
plants.
Reduce
pesticide usage
Learn how to avoid pesti-
cide usage by following proper
cultural techniques. And, when
pests do show up, learn how to
use the most environmentally
friendly techniques to manage
them.
Not sure where to start? Just
contact your local Cooperative
Extension Service when you
have a problem or question. We
are here to serve you.


We would like to say thank you for
another great year here at City Tire and
wish you and your family a safe and
happy New Year. We will be CLOSED
Thursday, Dec. 31 at noon and all day
Friday and Saturday, Jan. 1 and Jan. 2
in observance of the New Year.

DEP urges Floridians to reduce,

reuse & recycle after the holidays


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) is encouraging
residents to remember the three
R's following the holidays.
Americans throw away 25
percent more trash between
Thanksgiving and the New Year
than during any other time of
the year, accounting for the
creation of almost 25 million tons
of additional waste during the
holiday season. And according
to the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency, between 1960
and 2008 the amount of waste
each person creates has almost
doubled from 2.7 to 4.5 pounds
per day. In Florida, more than
32 million tons of municipal solid
waste is generated by 18 million
residents and 80 million visitors
every year.
Simple things that can be done


to reduce waste during and after
the holidays include:
*Reuse packing cartons and
shipping materials.
*Recycle unwanted and
duplicated gifts by promptly
exchanging them or giving them
to a local charity.
*Recycle your Christmas tree
and wreath.
*Compost your kitchen
scraps from holiday dinners and
parties.
*Give personal services such
as massages, gym memberships,
manicures, or facials as a gift
instead of a present that could
eventually end up in the trash.
*Use cloth napkins, silverware,
glass drinking cups, ceramic
coffee mugs and reusable plates
rather than disposable plastic,
Styrofoam or paper at holiday
dinners and parties.


*Rent party furnishings rather
than buying things you will only
use once a year. This reduces
clutter at your home afid also
produces less waste for the
environment.
*Use rechargeable batteries.
*Make sure that you do the
appropriate research to be sure
you are recycling your holiday
waste from your household
correctly.
To increase recycling
throughout Florida, Governor
Charlie Crist signed the Energy,
Climate Change, and Economic
Security Act of 2008 into law
which establishes a new statewide
recycling goal of 75 percent to be
achieved by 2020. For more
information on the new statewide
recycling goal of 75 percent,

#STfiRSCOPE
Week of Jan. 4- Jan. 10

ARIES -Mar 21/Apr 20
You're no shrinking violet this week, Aries.
Commanding attention wherever you go, others are
drawn to your magnetism. Enjoy the ego rush.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
A change in events leaves you flustered, Taurus. However,
you quickly rebound and get with the program. Lady luck is
on your side this Thursday ... and you'll need it.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
A situation that seemed hopeless at first really has a few
more possibilities than you anticipated, Gemini. All you
needed to do was open your eyes a little further.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Too much of a good thing can end up being not so good,
Cancer. Avoid the temptation to over-indulge in whatever
you do this week and for the few hereafter.

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Sometimes others are scared away by your
scary-sounding roar, Leo, and they don't get close
enough to realize you're really soft-hearted inside.

VIRGO -Aug 24/Sept 22
This week you find out that things you expected to go so
smoothly really won't go according to plan at all. Stop living
in the past, Virgo and accept your new future.

LIBRA- Sept 23/Oct 23
A few remarkable things pop up later in the week that take
you by surprise. One of them is where your relationship is
heading, Libra. You may need to give that'consideration.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
A seething temper needs to be kept in check, Scorpio,
otherwise your vindictive side could come out to play.
Breathe, focus and calm down as much as you can.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Surprise visits are good on occasion, but no one
appreciates a person who always pops in unannounced,
Sagittarius. Next time around, give a little notice.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Others question your motives behind a decision that seems
odd. Perhaps you overreacted just a bit, Capricorn? Think
about others' feelings before you think about yourself.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
You are ready to make a luxury purchase, Aquarius, but are
a little nervous to part with the cash. You're in a position
where you can splurge a little on something you'll enjoy.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
There are a lot of bright points to this week, Pisces, but for
some reason you'll focus in on the one dark spot.

My New Year's Resolution,
It's finally 2010, well my New Year's Reso-
lution is to stop talking. I've been talken crazy,
I'm try to stop talking to my neibors and other
people around me, and if I stop talking an pay
atticen to my teacher I could be better at every-
thing. One time I was in class and I was talking
and when the test came I had went blank. But
the next day I didn't talk and I pay atticen and
when we had the test I got 100%! I was very
happy.
The next thing I'm going to do is read more,
see we have AR store every year. But this year
I didn't go I was but I didn't mind and I need
some more points. I don't know how many I
have but I promise you I need some more. One
day I was playing with my cousin and he had to
leave so I didn't have nothing to do so I read.
I loved that book to, that was my New Year's
Resolution, what's yours?
Nina Boyd.



Tic Toc, Tic Toc here comes New Year's.
Are you going to make a New Year's Resolu-
tion?
My New Year's Resolution is to be a bet-
ter helper. To achieve this goal, I have to start
.helping around the house and around school.
Like around school I can go out side and pick
up paper and bottles and at my house I can clean
my room and the bathroom. That will make me
feel like a better person.
My other New Year's Resolution is to work
harder in class. To achieve this goal, I have to
start listening to my teacher and what we are
sospose to do. Like get my work done when
I'm sospose to so that I wont get a zero and to
see where I'm sospose to turn it in to. I will feel
like I work hard in class.
I hope I can achieve these goals for my New
Year's Resolution.
Tehya

2010 is here! Have you thought about mak-
ing a New Year's Resolution!
I have been thinking of what would make me
a better person than who I am.
Recycling is what could make me a better
person. One of the ways I can make sure I
recycle is wash and reuse paper plates, don't
throw away scrap paper, use it again.
Another one of my New Year's resolution
is not fighting. The way I can help no fight-
ing is watch my mouth and when someone says
something ugly to me I could send them an I
message. That's the way I wanna change my
life.
Hardy Mitchell

Have you ever had a New Year's Resolution?
Well, this is my first time having a resolution
for the new year.
My New Year's resolution is to be a better
Christian. To be a better Christian is to pray
more. If you do not know how to pray all you
need to is to know how to say Jesus and read
the bible more often. But if you go to church
and you don't read the bible that is ok and you
get to sing God songs.
My second resolution is work harder in
class, to pay atichin to my teacher when she is
talking and to not play or I will get a conduct


mark. Nobody wants one of those but when you
get one it is like*getting a spanking from my
mom.
I hope I do not break my new years resolu-
tion but I do hope I can accomplish it.
Cassie

My New Year's Resolution,
I'm going to help the invirement. I have to
clean up all the trash in the rivers and oshens.
I am also going to save electrisisty by turning
off lights turning off radios.
I think that is a great way to start the new
year.
Brandon

It is a new year 2010 so what's your resolution?
Well I've been thinking about what would help
me do better.
My New Year's resolution is to talk less in
class. In order to do that I'm going to have to
ignor other people who talk, pay attention more,
and keep my eyes on Mrs. Ridley.
My second resolution is to keep my room
clean at my house. In order to do that I'll have
to make a daily schedule at home, pick up any
thing that I take out and vacum when needed.
I really hope I can do it and I really think I am
doing a right thing by trying to accomplish it to
make me a better person.
Blake


My New Year's Resolution,
My resolution is to keep my room clean. To
do that I'm going to have to organize my room
and pick up what I drag out. A few months ago,
my room was really messy. So my mama told
me to clean it up it took me 4 hours to clean it
up. If I keep it clean I don't have to clean it up
on the weekends. I would feel so nice if I know
my room is clean.
Another resolution is to work on my hand
writing. I can write a lot to practice. One time
when I was seven I was writing something for
my mama. Then when she tried to read it in
almost every sentes she asked me what a word
was. That got me thinking that I should work
on my hand writing.
That is my New Year's Resolutions. I know
if I do them it will change my. life.
Paxton Blair

Yay! Yay! Yay! 2010 is here! I'm gonna change
things around a little bit by making a new years
resolution.
There's two things I'm gonna change. I'm
gonna be a better helper and I'm gonna recy-
cle.
To be a better helper I'm gonna help my
mom build things. Help give my grandmother
her medical and help my little sister.
The other day I helped my mom build two
chairs at her work. Before I went with her to
work, she built a table then I helped her build
the chairs. I helped her cut the wood, nail the
wood and sand the wood.
To recycle I will put it in the recycle bin and
I will make stuff with it.
Like one day I found a lot of empty cans and
I made 10 fake robots. They were so cool.
And that what I'm gonna change.
Cydney

A group who gathers food and clothing for those in need had a need of their own
filled recently when a local company donated materials and labor to built a parking

"Due to the recent heavy rains and the high volume of traffic, our parking lot
was becoming almost impassable," said Freddie Duggar, Assistant Director at
the new Calhoun-Liberty Ministry Center located on S.R. 20 in Blountstown.
"One phone call to C. W. Roberts Contracting had 12 dump truck loads of asphalt
milling on the way to the ministry center parking lot, along with a motor grader
to spread and level the milling."
Cathy Brock-Revell, Ministry Center Director, adds, "Due to Mr. Chuck
Roberts' generous donation, we will be better able to fulfill our
mission of helping needy families in Calhoun and Liberty -
counties."

the Calhoun-Liberty Ministerial Center, is shown with Roberts
