Hosford man charged with felony DUI after disturbance at store

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A 26-year-old Hosford man was charged
with felony DUI after a disturbance at a Bristol
convenience store Saturday night.
Deputies were called to the B.P. Station at 9:40
p.m., where they found three men who had just
been involved in an altercation.
According to the arrest report, James Brown
was driving on County Road 12 near the school
when a truck came from behind at a high rate of
speed, nearly hitting his vehicle. Brown said he
pulled off the road to avoid a collision when he
saw the other truck swerving.
When he stopped, the other vehicle - a gold

pickup driven by Johnnie Arnold - stopped
alongside Brown's truck. There was an altercation
between the two drivers. Arnold sped off
and Brown continued into town, pulling into
the BP Station, where he again saw Arnold.
Brown's passenger, Jay Brown, said Arnold
approached his truck, started cursing and then
spit in his face. Jay Brown stated that he then hit
Arnold. Arnold had an injury to his cheek, and
another to his elbow, which he said was caused
when he fell on the sidewalk. Arnold declined to
press charges or get medical care.
While he and Deputy Andrea Skrabal were

taking statements, Lt. Shane Geiger noticed an
open container of Vodka on the passenger seat
of Arnold's pickup.
Noting the pdor of an alcoholic beverage
coming from Arnold's breath, Skrabal conducted
a field sobriety test and he was taken to the
jail for a breath test to determine the level of
alcohol in his system. He gave two samples .1
the Intoxilyzer, with one reading of .149 and
the other of .157. Florida's legal blood alcohol
limit is .08.
Due to two previous arrests for drinking and
driving, Saturday's charge resulted in a felony

Basketball fan who decided to
make a few calls of his own with a
referee's stolen BlackBerry is
facing a larceny charge following
his arrest Sunday.
According to a report from the
Blountstown Police Department,
a $400 Blackberry cell phone was
reported missing by a referee
after a Feb. 3 basketball game in
The locked door to the room
where the phone was stored was
left ajar after another official
went in to get something before
leaving for another game, the
report stated.
When Referee Natasha Braddy
went to retrieve her possessions
after the game, she realized the
phone was not where she had
left it.
One of the players reported
seeing Adult School student
Lyndon West, 18, with the phone
that night; he was also spotted in
the area near the referees' storage
Braddy told the police she
called her number and a black

male answered. She said that
when she asked about the phone,
the male asked how much she
would pay to get it back.
A cousin of the suspect said
she was told he had a new phone
but West would-not explain how
he got it.
The cousin later made contact

with West and relayed that the
owner would not press charges if
he would pay the $95 she would
need to get another phone. West
told his cousin he did not have the
money at that time.
A warrant was issued for his
arrest. He was taken into custody
Sept. 13.

Lila Davis & Molly, Gloria Jean Cox & Lacy
Two exceptionally giving women have raised and released two deer. Molly and
Lacy were born to a local deer breeder and then turned over to their surrogate
mothers, who nurtured them until they were ready to be released.
Lila Davis brought Molly to her home in Bristol on June 17. She was only a
day old when Lila started giving her replacement milk for fawns. She says that
Molly is mischievous and funny. She loves to eat apples, leaves and cherries. "I
thought she was going to eat me out of house and home," Lila said. "She also
would follow me around like a puppy dog."
Gloria Jean Cox brought her little foster fawn to her home in Leon County on
July 1 and found out quickly that deer are affectionate animals. "I had no
idea that little deer are so loving." She says. 'This has been one of the
most rewarding things I have ever done."
Gloria Jean and Lila are sisters, which made this experience special
to them. They took the deer back to the breeder Sept. 5 and have
i been back to see them nearly every day. "It's hard to let them go,"
Gloria Jean explains. She said that if they are given a chance,
S they would love to raise more deer.
It is against the law to raise these animals unless you are li-
censed, according to the Fish and Wildlife Commission. "If you
find a baby deer, it's important to contact someone who-can
f help as soon as possible," says Lila. 'They need special care
to erisure that they stay healthy and can be safely released."

Enrollment up at Chipola College this fall

College officials are celebrating
a five percent enrollment
increase this Fall.
While the numbers are
still being collected from on-
campus programs and high
school dual enrollment classes,
college officials estimate that
more than 2,000 students are
enrolled this Fall.
"We, are pleased with the
continued growth, which points
to the ongoing demand for
higher education opportunities
in our area," said Dr. Jayne
Roberts, Chipola's Dean of
Enrollment Services. "It's
clear that the current economic
climate is driving more students
to campuses across the nation,
and Chipola is no exception."
Roberts also points to growth
in Chipola's Bachelor degree
programs as an important
factor in the overall increase.
Enrollment in B.S. programs is
up 85% over this time last year
with 158 students compared to
85 last Fall.
Roberts says, "The
Bachelor's degree programs
have. drawn great interest and
enrollment demands at the
associate's level as well as the
bachelor's level."
Chipola offers eight
bachelor's degree programs
including math or science
education for middle and high
school, elementary education,
exceptional student education,

by Richard Williams, F
Journal sports writer
.The Liberty Bulldog
junior varsity football squad
earned a 14-8 victory over
the Blountstown Tigers junior
varsity Sept. 10 in Bristol.
The first play of the game
was a 65-yard Bulldog
touchdown pass. Quarterback
Brenton Bailey hit Alex
Marlowe on the long scoring
play. After the initial score
both defenses were able to
hold the other's offense out
of the end zone until the final
quarter of the game.
In the fourth quarter, it was
Liberty's defense scoring the
points when Bulldog Blake Baggett intercepted a pass and return the pickoff for a touchdown to give
LCHS a 14-0 lead.
The Tigers scored their touchdown on the game's final play. The rushing touchdown was scored with
no time remainifig on the clock. The two point conversion was good and LCHS won the game 14-8.



2009 Homecoming Parade Grand

Marshal is Coach David Earl Pitts

The Blountstown High School faculty has selected
Coach David Earl Pitts as the 2009 Homecoming
Parade Grand Marshal.,
David Pitts attended Blountstown schools,
graduating from BHS in 1962. He was an outstanding
high school athlete who played football and baseball
all four years of high school. He played tackle on the
BHS Tiger football team, earning All-Conference
recognition and an athletic scholarship to FSU during
his senior year.
Following his college graduation, David returned
to Blountstown with his wife, Dyan Marshall Pitts.
David began teaching at BHS where he spent the
next 42 years teaching and coaching. In 1976 and
.1977, Coach Pitts led the "Fighting Tigers" to the
only football state championships that our school
has earned!
Also, perhaps just as memorable, Coach Pitts
taught a multitude of high school students to drive
as the county Driver's Education teacher! During his
career, David Pitts has had a tremendous impact on
the young people of our community and our world.
His legacy will not soon be forgotten!
Coach Pitts retired last school year and the BHS
teachers and students miss his charm and charisma
everyday. Last spring, the faculty and staff of
Blountstown High School honored David Pitts with
an entertaining and treasured retirement luncheon
at The Callahan Restaurant. Now, in honor of his
service to our school and community, we are proud

to announce that David Earl Pitts in the 2009
Grand Marshal of the Blountstown High School
Homecoming Parade.
The parade will be held on Friday, Sept. 25,
beginning at 1 p.m. It will leave BHS and travel
to BES and Parthenon Healthcare Center. Then,
it will return to pass in front of BHS and move
down Highway 71 to the intersection of Highway
20. It will turn left and proceed to Wakulla Bank,
where it will then turn back to the left and return
to BHS. We encourage everyone to come out
and view the parade and pay tribute to Coach
David Pitts.

Homecoming 5K Race starting at Sam Atkins
The Homecoming 5K Race set for Saturday, Sept. All other information for the race remains
19 beginning at 7 a.m. will start at Sam Atkins Park the same. If you have any questions call BHS at
and go to the Train Depot. 674-5724 or 643-6265.

A teacher that we all look up
to, Mrs. Curl...Perhaps one of
the tallest female teachers to ever
teach in the 'History' of BHS...
standing at a towering 5'11".
She was born on an army base
in Frankfurt, Germany (that's
pretty far away). Since Mrs.
Curl's father was in the army she
never lived in one place for too
long, but when she turned 9 she
was finally able to settle down in
Altha, where she graduated from
Altha School. I asked her why
she wanted to be a teacher and
she simply said, "It's what I've
always wanted to do since I was
a kid." I was curious to know
why she wanted to teach History.
Mrs. Curl replied, "I read the
book Little House on the Prairie
and just wanted to teach History
ever since." Mrs. Curl has taught
for 19 years (which is longer
than most of us kids have been
alive). She also teaches Dual
Enrollment American History/
World History. When.I asked her
what.college she went to I was
astounded to hear that she's been
to 5 different schools including...
Chipola.UWF, FSU,FAMU, and
Tr.o (that's a lot!). Eventually
she decided to stick with one
college, UWF, which is where
she graduated. She received a

Teresa Brantley-Curl
master's degree and a teaching
certificate. Besides being an
awesome teacher she's also the
wife of Robert Curl and the
mother of Taylor and Chase.
Mrs. Curl's awesome hobbies
are knitting, reading, scrap
booking, and the occasional...
Her favorite book is "Lord of
the Rings" (I was surprised).
Mrs. Curl's favorite movie is
"O Brother Where Art Thou" (I
wonder what it's about?). I bet
you'll never guess what Mrs.
Curl's. favorite meal is...it's
chocolate and coffee (she's so
weird). I also came to find out
that she's an animal lover... she
has two dogs, Sandy and Annie.
Well...that's all the information
I could get out of her before she
kicked me out of her room.

by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
The home standing Liberty County Bulldogs
built a 22-0 lead on the way to a 45-14 win over
Tallahassee Maclay Sept. 11.
Liberty took the opening kickoff and drove to
the Maclay two yard line before fumbling the ball
away. Liberty's defense scored the first points of
the night on a third down tackle in the end zone 1u-1
for a safety and a 2-0 lead. The safety was quickly r U ..
followed by two more first quarter touchdowns l
that gave LCHS a 15-0 lead. The Bulldogs added
to the lead in the second quarter on run by Keith ,

Cloudless Sulphur butterflies fly into area

S by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County
Butterfly watching is a great
pastime. Even if you aren't
taking the time to marvel at the
diversity of butterflies in the state
of Florida, surely you've noticed
the graceful Cloudless Sulphur
The Cloudless Sulphur is
distinctive in its size and coloring.
It is a relatively large butterfly
with a wingspan ranging from
two to three inches, and coloring
that is gender-dependent: Males
are commonly a bright yellow,
lacking any markings, while the
females may be distinguished by
black markings bordering their
yellow-white wings.

common, native

pea, is a host plant addition to t
for this butterfly
and helps ensures
the survival of the Cloudless
Sulphur butterfly.

The partridge pea, or sensitive
plant, is a slender-stemmed,
one to three foot tall annual.
The leaves consist of 10 to 15
pairs of small, narrow leaflets.
Leaves collapse when touched,
giving rise to the common name
The showy yellow flowers,
about one inch across, grow
in small clusters on the stem.
Flowers normally bloom July
through September. The fruit is
a straight, narrow pod 1 V1 to 2/2
inches long, which splits along

an important
honey plant,
often occurring where few other
honey plants are found. Nectar
is not available in the flowers
of showy partridge pea brtt is
produced by small orange glands
at the base of each leaf. Ants
often seek the nectar and are
frequent visitors.
This plant has many benefits.
It is a host plant for the sulfur
butterfly which lays its eggs on
the leaves, and the larvae use the
leaves as a food source. It is also
considered an excellent species
for planting on disturbed areas

for erosion control and improving
soil fertility. It establishes rapidly,
fixes nitrogen, reseeds, and slowly
decreases as other species in the
seeding mix begin to dominate
the site.
Like other members of the pea
family, partridge pea requires the
presence of microorganisms that
inhabit nodules on the plants root
system and produce nitrogen
compounds necessary for the
plants survival.
Partridge pea has a long history
in Native American culture as a
medicinal plant but, partridge
pea can be a purgative in humans
and is toxic to livestock. So once
again, let's leave this one for the
birds, bees, and butterflies.
The Cloudless Sulphur is a
beautiful native butterfly. It is
a harmless insect, making it a
welcome visitor to any garden. So
leave some weeds and wildflowers
and enjoy the butterflies. You'll
be glad you did.

North Florida Research and
Education Center-Suwannee
Valley (NFREC-SV) and The
Original Florida Tourism Task
Force will be offering a workshop
on Horse Camping Opportunities
for. agricultural producers on
Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 8:30 a.m.
to 3:30 p.m. at the Black Prong
Equestrian Center in Bronson.
Trail rides have become a
popular sport due to the large
number of trail riding venues
in Florida. Equestrians often
need camping facilities for both
themselves and their horses.
Adding horse/human camping
faculties to existing farms may be
a means to provide supplemental
income to family-farms. This
workshop will help area farm
and land owners start or improve
such a business. "Attendees will
be able to explore the possibility
of adding horse camping facilities
to their farming activities," said
Linda Landrum. a UF/IFAS
Regional SpecializedAgent based
at the NFREC-SV. The workshop
will include amenities needed for
horse and human campers, how
to locate campers, marketing the
business and regulations affecting
camping facilities.
"In today's economy of
rapidly increasing production
costs, it is very important that
farmers diversify their operations

, possibly seeking more profitable
enterprises to meet the consumer'
demand in the tourism markets,"
said Landrum. NFREC-SV
serves the diverse agricultural
interests in the region including
vegetables, fruit crops, protected
culture, forestry, tobacco and
other forage crops. The Original
Florida Tourism Task Force is
a tourism marketing group that
seeks to promote yet preserve the
natural and cultural attractions of
the area to increase the number of
visitors and extend their stay.

The registration fee is $20 a
person for the workshop which
includes lunch, refreshments and
program materials.
The registration deadline for
the workshop is Sept. 18 at 5 p.m.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, big things have been hap-
pening to you and you may not be
ready for all of the changes. There's
no turning back this week, so you'd
better get used to the idea.
TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21
Gloating does not become you,
Taurus. Share your special news
in a way that will make others feel
involved and happy for your good
fortune. Tuesday is a key day.
GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21
Gemini, tempers flare and it will be
up to you to put out the flames. You
just need to find the right approach
to the situation. Money matters are
of concern later in the week.
CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, you will have to take the
reigns when someone who is close
to you is unable to fulfill his or her
responsibility this week. You'll be a
trooper and get the job done.
LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23
Leo, fear of the unknown is causing
you to hang out in the shadows.
This isn't in your nature, so get
out there and show off your stuff.
You'll be surprised.
VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, you wish you were one of
those people with too much time
on your hands. But as this week
proves, it's simply not the case.
You'll be running around.
LIBRA -Sept 23/Oct23
You may have bitten off more than
you can chew, Libra. Now you
will spend the week working hard
to complete all of your tasks. Ask
Cancer for some help.
SCORPIO - Oct 24Nov 22
Scorpio, feeling overwhelmed is
normal for someonein your posi-
tion this week. However, you have
the dedication to muster through
and get any job done.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21
A few changes are in store for you,
Sagittarius. Are you ready? You

son cleaning in your home. Now is
the time to sort through old things
and trash them.
CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20
Capricorn, surprise news leaves
others baffled by your actions. Next
time you may want to drop some
hints to lessen the blow. Don't
expect a warm reception.
AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18
Aquarius, you have a lot on your
plate right now, but the best thing
to do is to check one item off the
"to-do" list each day. This way
things won't start backing up.
PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20
Pisces, things don't always work
out the way you expect them to.

National Hunting & Fishing day set for Sept. 26

Hunting and fishing have
contributed to our society since
Colonial days, and that's the reason
beyond the National Hunting and
Fishing Day. On Saturday, Sept.
26, the contributions anglers and
hunters make to fish and wildlife
conservation will be recognized.
Since 1972, every president
has formally proclaimed National
Hunting and Fishing Day. This
year, country music star Luke
Bryan is the honorary chairman,
and the official Web site (NHFday.
org) offers great tips on getting
started fishing, shooting or
hunting and on where to go.
More than a century ago,
hunters and anglers were the first
to recognize that development
and unregulated uses of wildlife
were threatening the future of
many species. President Theodore
Roosevelt, a very active hunter and
angler, supported the call for the
first laws'to restrict commercial
harvest of wildlife.
Hunters and- anglers urged
sustainable use offish and game,
created hunting and fishing
licenses, and lobbied for taxes
on sporting equipment to provide
funds for state conservation
agencies. These user-driven
actions were the foundation
for some of the most dramatic
conservation successes of all
time. Populations of largemouth
bass, white-tailed deer, wild
turkey, wood ducks and many
other species began to recover
from decades of unregulated
exploitation. Sportsmen have
also contributed countless hours
to clean up, protect and enhance

millions of
acres of habitat
for the use and
enjoyment of
Hunting and
Fishing Day is
considered by
many to be the
most effective
grassroots effort
ever undertaken

to promote these outdoor sports
and conservation. In modern
times, this celebration of the
enjoyment and health benefits
that hunting and fishing bring
to participants is especially
important. Research shows
active, nature-based recreation
significantly contributes to the
cure of obesity, heart disease and
diabetes and a virtual epidemic of
attention deficit disorder and the
increasing prevalence of asthma
and allergies among children.
Not only is the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) a supporter
of National Hunting and Fishing
Day, it is also a major promoter
of the Get Outdoors Florida!
coalition (GetOutdoorsFlorida.
com). Get Outdoors Florida! is
working to address these health
issues that are described as "nature
deficit-disorder." Besides that, by
getting outdoors and engaging in
activities such as fishing, hunting,
hiking and wildlife viewing,
research shows that youth develop
greater self-confidence, a sense of
responsibility and better social
networking skills. That's the old

While enjoying National
Hunting and Fishing Day, it
may be worthwhile to consider
the North American Model of
Wildlife Conservation's seven
basic principles, which enable
you to have such great hunting
and fishing opportunities:
1. Fish and wildlife are public
resources. Throughout the United
States, wildlife is held in common
ownership by the state for the
benefit of all people.
2. Markets for trade in black
bass and other wildlife and
sportfish are carefully restricted,
removing a huge threat to
sustaining those species.
3. States allow sustainable use
of sport fish and wildlife by law,
not by market pressures, land
ownership or special privilege.
The public has input into how
these resources are allocated.
4. The democracy of hunting is

Bald eagles among first 'snowbirds' to arrive in FL

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has received reports of
bald eagles returning to nesting
territories throughout Florida the
past few weeks.
This majestic bird that calls
Florida home during its nesting
season has been flying back to
former nesting sites from Duval
to Collier counties, although
there are no reports of nesting
activity yet. The official start of
the nesting season is Oct. 1.
The FWC removed the bald
eagle from the state's threatened
species list in 2008 and at the
same time implemented a bald
eagle management plan with
guidelines to help residents avoid
causing a disturbance to nesting
bald eagles. People should follow
the management plan whenever
activities or projects are being
conducted within 660 feet of
an eagle's nest when eagles are
present. Bald eagles are protected
from disturbance by the Florida
Administrative Code, as well as
two federal laws: the Migratory
Bird Treaty Act and the Bald and
Golden Eagle Protection Act.
"The bald eagle is a success
story in the United States,
particularly in Florida," said
Ulgonda Kirkpatrick, bald eagle
management plan coordinator.
"We went from 88 active nests in

1973 to more than 1,100 nests in
2007; that's a twelvefold increase
in Florida."
The FWC is committed to
conserving the bald eagle. All
known nesting territories are
surveyed annually by aircraft
to monitor nesting activity and
reproduction, according to
In Florida, bald
eagles may begin
gathering materials
for nests in late
September or early
October. They begin
laying eggs as early
as October and as
late as April, with
incubation lasting
approximately 35
Says. Once hatched,
the fledglings begin '
flying from the nest
at 11 weeks, but stay
with their parents an
additional four to 11

"If everyone does
their part to help
conserve Florida's
bald eagles, we
will ensure that
this magnificent
species continues to
flourish in Florida for
generations to come,"
Kirkpatrick said.

The bald eagle represents a success story
in Florida but is still protected from human

and adopt additional ones on their
Congress renamed
and revamped the former
Conservation Security Program
in the Food, Conservation, and
Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Farm
Bill), to improve its availability
and appeal.to agricultural and
forestry producers. Eligible lands
include cropland, grassland,
prairie, improved pastureland,
rangeland, non-industrial private
forestland-a new land use for
the program-and agricultural
land under the jurisdiction
of an Indian tribe. Eligible
applicants may include individual
landowners, legal entities, and
Indian tribes. Agricultural and
forestry producers must submit
applications by Sept. 30 to be
considered for funding in the first
ranking period.
To apply for the newly
revamped CSP, potential
participants will be encouraged
to use a self-screening checklist
first to determine whether the
new program is suitable for
them or their operation. It will
be available on NRCS Web
sites and at NRCS field offices.
After self-screening, the
producer's current and proposed
conservation practices are entered
in the conservation measurement
tool (CMT). This tool estimates
the level of environmental
performance to be achieved by
a producer implementing and
maintaining conservation activity.
The conservation performance
estimated by the CMT will be
used to rank applications. States
will determine their own priority
resource concerns, one of the
criteria that will be used to rank
applications. States will establish
ranking pools to rank applications
with similar resource concerns.
NRCS field staff also will
conduct on-site field verifications
of applicants' information
obtained from the CMT. Once
the potential participant has been
field verified and approved for
funding, he or she must develop a
conservation stewardship plan.

including eligibility requirements,
producers can visit www.nrcs.

Jim and Rita Pruette of Calhoun County traveled to Washington to attend .
Saturday's Tea Party March, where citizens gathered to express
their views on how the country should be run. Rita, who is a nurse
practitioner, hopes legislators making decisions on health care will
"slow down and read the bill" before they pass it. Her husband,
Jim, has a different opinion. "I don't want them to pass it at all,"
he says. "This is not about socialized medicine," he notes,
"This is about a power grab for every aspect of your life."Vo
He said there were about 1.5 million "irritated but very nice
people" at the march. PHOTOS COURTESY JIM PRUETTE
