After 21 years of
pageants, Jami is
'retiring out' at 25
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
After a week of dinners, rehearsals, interviews and
finally, the big event itself, Jami Lynn Daniels has returned
home to Kinard from-the Miss Florida USA pageant,
where she made it into the final 15 and was named Most
When it was all over, what's the first thing she asked
for? "I wanted some sweet tea and chocolate cake."
Her mother, Charlotte Daniels, who was in Hollywood,
Florida to support her daughter in Saturday's pageant,
had it ready for her.
This was Jami's third time competing for Miss Florida.
The first year, she made the top 15, the second year
she did not place and this year, she was the only North
Florida contestant in the Top 15 among the pageant's 61
The crown for Miss Florida USA2011 went to Lissette
Garcia, representing Miami Tropic.
.Jami is proud that her pageant roommate, Marjorie
Acosta, was named second runner-up, and is already
planning a get-together with some of the girls she met
during pageant week.
Several celebrities were seen at the hotel where
the contestants were staying and rehearsing. She was
excited to share an elevator with the producer for Khloe
Kardashian's radio show, Michael Yo, and spotted singer
Ryan Cabrera. But there was only one man Jami was
willing to chase down to have her photo taken with: Chuy
from the Chelsea Lately show, who happened to be there
for the Ms. Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant, also
being held in Broward County that weekend.
"Chuy passed me in the lobby. I turned around and ran
after him. I had to have a picture with Chuy," she said,

Calhoun County opens new runway
The Calhoun County Industrial
Development Authority will hold
a ribbon-cutting ceremony and
officially open the new 3,100-foot
runway at the Calhoun County
Airport this morning, Wednesday,
July 14 at 9 a.m.
The newly paved runway is a
significant upgrade from the old turf
runway which was mostly utilized
by light twin and single-engine
planes. This runway offers a new
option to local pilots with much
larger aircraft. The next phase of the
airport's improvements will be the
construction of 24 new T-hangars.
The airport is located within the
Calhoun County Industrial Park
which has been designated by the
Governor's Office of Tourism,
Trade, and Economic Development
(OTTED) as the site of the Northwest
Florida Catalyst Project.
IDA board members, local leaders,
and those who have worked hard
to make this project a success will

Argument at convenience store leads
to discovery of meth ingredients in truck
An argument between a couple at
the gas pumps outside the Texaco on
Central Avenue in Blountstown led to
one arrest Wednesday after suspicious
chemicals were found in a vehicle.
Blountstown Police Officer Leo
Marlowe responded to a report of a
disturbance between a white male and
a white female. The two were arguing
after the woman saw her boyfriend,
Michael Anthony Arguelles, 31, with
another woman in his vehicle.
While investigating the call,
Marlowe learned that the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office suspected
Arguelles of transporting a meth lab.
The officer sent the girlfriend
away from the scene and spoke with
Arguelles and his passenger, Shawn
Renee Goff, 37, before searching his

Aman who returned to an Altha home after he had been
issued a trespassing notice and allegedly made threats to
bur it down was arrested last week.
Troy Nichols, 41, was charged with trespass after
warning when a deputy arrived and found him at the scene
on July 6. A trespassing warning had been issued against
him on May 25 by Altha Police Chief Jimmy Baggett.
According to the arrest report, Karen Bryant called her
daughter, Jessica Durden, to go check on her residence
after she received text messages in which Nichols
reportedly stated that he was going to bur the home and
Bryant contacted the sheriff's office and a deputy
went to the NE Evans Street residence, where he found
several doors standing open and a pile of ashes smoldering
outside. The home was secured and photographed. Durden
and the deputy then left the scene.
A short time later, Durden called the sheriff's office
again to report that when she went back to the home, she
found Nichols asleep in the back bedroom.
The two were standing in the middle of Evans Avenue
talking when the deputy made his second trip to the home
and took Nichols into custody.

WITH A LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Write: The Calhoun-Liberty Journal
RO. Box 536, Bristol 32321
Reader disputes results
of poll cited in column
To the editor:
Perhaps Jim Pruette should look in the mirror before
he accuses others of "destroying our history." Last week,
Mr. Pruette claimed that "...polls unanimously showed that
the overwhelming majority of [Americans] opposed..."
the stimulus package and health care reform.
In fact, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll
taken in June of this year, 45% support the health care
reform law, while only 42% oppose it.
Also, one week before the stimulus package was passed
into law on Feb. 17, 2009, public support for the stimulus
was at 59% according to a USA Today/Gallup poll. It is
too bad none of that stimulus money went to hire fact-
checkers for newspaper columnists.
As for Mr. Pruette's claim that four of the nine Supreme
Court Justices voted to rob every American of their right
to self-defense and their right to own guns... Those four
Justices merely voted to uphold a ban on handguns in
the city limits of Chicago -- a banr which the citizens of
Chicago passed into law because they thought it was in
the best interest of their community. It is patently absurd
for Mr. Pruette to spin that Supreme Court vote into a
doomsday warning of "tyrannical Progressives" coming
to take your guns and leave you defenseless.
This country already has one Glenn Beck -- and that
is one too many.

Where is the next place you'll see
a Calhoun Co. ambulance parked?
To the editor:
On Thursday, July 8 a Calhoun County ambulance
was parked at Panama City Mall, in front of the entrance
The witness states she went into the food court thinking
the crew were eating. The crew was not eating. The
witness stayed and waited until 1:40 p.m. The crew did
not show. When she left, the ambulance was still parked
in the same spot. This was a supervisor truck.
In case you did not know, this is not the first time an
ambulance was in the wrong place. Since under new
management, one of the ambulances was parked at the
Blountstown river landing and the crew was fishing.
Another time the ambulance was parked on a hunting
lease in Calhoun County. Where will you see a Calhoun
County ambulance next?
-Remember, these emergency vehicles belong to the
county of Calhoun.

nese company in Shenzen, China, a city
in which I have spent time, employs
800,000 workers, more workers than all
of Apple, Dell, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, Intel and Sony
combined.While the number of workers in China involved in
computer manufacturing continues to increase, the number
of Americans involved in computer production continues to
decrease. The U.S. computer workforce is about 150,000,
down from a high of approximately 500,000 in 1985.
Grove states that Apple employs approximately 25,000
people in the U.S., but employs approximately 250(,000
Chinese workers at Foxconn. That is a 10 to 1 ratio of
Chinese workers to U.S. workers.
Because of the demand for alternative energy, the devel-
opment and production of lithium-ion batteries for electric
vehicles is a growing industry. According to Grove, there
are approximately 1,100 workers in the U.S. involved in
the development and production of lithium-ion batteries

35,700 in Japan.

even certain foods can at-

can be hard to avoid. Per-
haps a screened-in porch

while. If there is blooming

property to encourage bees
to gather at this out-of-the-
way spot, leaving other
parts of your yard relative-
ly bee-free. You'll notice
that when bees do come
to work over the peren-
nial border, they tend to be
very methodical, starting
at the base of one stalk and
working their way upward
in a spiral fashion, climb-
ing from bloom to bloom,
then dropping down to the
next stalk. Try not to inter-
fere with their work, and
they'll probably leave you
alone. Note, too, in which
direction the bees fly to re-
turn to the hive -- and stay
out of their beeline!
Have gravestone epi-
taphs become a thing of
the past, so to speak?
-A. B., Pine Bluff, Ark.
ANSWER: Seems so.
Perhaps it's just the cost of
engraving stone these days.
Verses may be simply too
dear when cut in granite or
slate. Brevity never ham-
pered wit, however. Some
classic epitaphs include
one in London that reads,
"That is all," and another
for a man named Haine, in
that says, "Haine haint."
tury doctor in Pawtucket,
Rhode Island, topped his
grave with a giant rock,
and had it engraved, "This
is on me."
If the cost of engraving
is the hitch, perhaps we
could make do with more
famous last words. Even
hardened criminals seem
to have a sense of humor.
One mail, hanged at the
gallows in 1856, looked
at the trap door as he was
stepping up to it and in-
quired, "Are you sure this
is safe?" (Was this the ori-
gin of "gallows humor?")
Another man, about to be
executed by a firing squad,
was asked if he had a last
request. "Yes," he said, "a
The poet Goethe is said
to have shouted "More
light!" upon his deathbed.
"Please put out the lights"
was believed to have been
the last utterance of Theo-
dore Roosevelt. Ethan Al-
len, when told the angels
were waiting for him, was
not to be hurried. "Well --
let 'em wait!"-he replied,
Oliver Cromwell felt just
the opposite: "My design
is to make what haste I can
to be gone." Henry David

Miss Florida was her
last pageant now that she's
"aged out" at 25. She's got
wonderful memories, tons
of photos and a trophy c
cabinet full of crowns, so
what's next for a retired
pageant girl? She's got
plenty of plans.
First, she returns to
work at Head to Toe in Oeh w
Blountstown this week, p p
where she does hair,
makeup and nails.
She will continue
working in the pageant
world as a consultant, where
she loves coaching young
girls. "At the end of the
day, it's about highlighting
out their traits, not molding
them," she says of her
young charges. She also
plans to continue directing
pageants, something she's done since she was 15.
She's done some modeling, been featured in magazines and also does photography
for aspiring pageant contestants.
"I'm working with a company out of Miami to launch my own makeup line," she
says, explaining that her label, Moxie Cosmetics, will feature a thicker stage-ready
makeup with light crystals that give an airbrushed look. "It's definitely a great stage
makeup and will be sold locally," she says.
And she's hoping in the future to have her own full-service special occasion boutique.
"I want to offer formal gowns for proms, pageants and weddings," she says, noting
that even in Panama City and Tallahassee, "There's no large bridal boutique." She
wants to offer a one-stop shop for women, providing gowns and doing hair, makeup
She sees her years in pageants as giving her a good start for the future. "I have that
foundation that lets me know I am who I am, proud of where I come from and I bow
my head to nobody but the Good Lord."

Mushrooms growing on live trees may indicate a decay problem
by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County
Mushrooms are fungi
that grow-upon decaying
organic matter. They do
not contain chlorophyll
and therefore cannot pro-
duce their own food. Their
"food" consists of carbo-
hydrates and proteins pro-
duced during the decompo-
sition of organic material.
Hence, mushrooms in the
landscape are usually an
indication of decay or de-
Many common mush-
rooms are poisonous.
Never eat a wild mush-
room unless it has been
definitively identified by
an expert and is known to
be edible. '
r o 0 m
left to the
grass clippings. Sometimes
mulch that is kept too wet
can also host a crop of
these decomposers. Rather
than trying to kill mush-
rooms by using expensive
fungicides, just pick them
by hand and toss them
away. You can also mow
them down, but they will
keep coming back. An-
other trick is to reduce the
amount of water added to
the landscape, which will
discourage their growth.
A circle of mushrooms
in the lawn may be an indi-
cation of a disorder called
fairy ring. For more infor-
mation visit the Univer-
sity of Florida publication
Mushroom growing at
the base of a shrub may
indicate a serious plant
disease called mushroom
root rot. It affects many
different trees and shrubs.
Symptoms include branch
dieback and thin foliage
that turns yellow or brown.
Mushroom root rot can
also cause reduced growth,
wood decay, and death.
But the most tell-tale
sign of this fungus is the
cluster of yellow mush-
rooms that typically de-
velop at the base of the in-
fected plants. They usually
appear from June through
October, when there have
been heavy rains and
soils are moist. Mush-
room root rot can attack
healthy plants, but is more
common on stressed and
neglected plants. Proper

Wood decay is a com-
mon occurrence among all
kinds of trees. Decay can
affect the roots, sapwood,
or heartwood of a tree.
Some trees may appear to
be healthy, yet have ex-
tensive decay within the
heartwood. These trees, al-
though appearing healthy,
are structurally weakened
and will be more vulner-
able to damage by high
One indication of decay
are mushrooms, some-
times called conks, seen
growing on the sides of
trees. Trees are usually in-
fected for many years be-
fore mushrooms are visi-
ble. Removing these conks
will not cure the tree, since
the fungus is living inter-
nally inside the trade.
Wood decay begins
with any injury that breaks
through the bark and ex-
poses the wood. The injury
may be the result of dam-
age by a mower or string
trimmer, animal damage,
broken branch, or improp-
erly pruned branches.
Once the tree is wound-
ed, many microorganisms
land on the surface of the
wound. Some of these or-
ganisms begin to grow and
colonize the wounded tis-
sue. Later, wood-rotting
fungi attack and grow.
Mushrooms or conks
growing on a palm are an
indication of a fatal disease
called ganoderma butt rot.
The conk starts out as a one
to two inch marshmallow-
like structure and develops
into a woody shelf fungus.
These conks will dissemi-
nate spores into the air. For
more information on this
deadly disease, refer to a
University of Florida pub-
lication at www.edis.ifas.
While many of us enjoy
eating mushrooms, they
may be indicators of decay
in our landscape plants.
Remember never to eat
a wild mushroom unless
identified by an expert and
always investigate mush-
rooms growing on live
trees, palms and shrubs.

That's why I recently introduced two
pieces of legislation that will help speed
economic relief to the countless residents,
Congressman Alien Boyd
property owners, small businesses and
taxpayers that have been economically impacted as a
result of the BP oil crisis.
The first piece of legislation aims to make BP's claims
checks tax exempt.
Many victims of this tragedy are anxiously checking
their mailboxes and waiting for their BP claims check to
arrive to pay for basic necessities and cushion the losses
they've experienced as a result of this catastrophe. In
many cases, these claims checks have become a lifeline
for those who have been economically impacted by the
BP oil spill.
Unfortunately, at this moment these claims checks
are considered taxable income, meaning that recipients
will be responsible for paying the appropriate amount
of taxes on their next tax return.
This is not right. The victims of this tragedy should
be entitled to the full amount provided to them and
should not have to set aside a chunk for their next tax
return. My legislation will allow them to fully recoup
the damages they've experienced without fear of being
hit with unnecessary fees down the road. It is modeled
after similar legislation from 2001 that aided victims of
the September 11,2001 terrorist attacks.
The second bill would provide tax relief and tax
incentives to those seeking economic development
opportunities in our area.
Florida Lottery announced

previous Millionaire Raffle
drawing in the Lottery's

small businesses will be eligible for tax
breaks on bonds, mortgages, pensions and
other financing tools that will encourage
economic development and continued
investment in North Florida.
Small businesses in these zones would
particularly benefit from two of the
legislation's many economic incentives,
specifically the ability to carry net operating losses back
for five years instead of two years and an increase in the
depreciation deduction small businesses are allowed to
claim per year.
The BP oil spill has had a profound impact on our
region, and far too many of our friends and neighbors
are already reeling from a disaster that was completely
out of their control. Their livelihoods should not be put
in jeopardy as a result of a situation they did nothing
For as long as this crisis continues, I will continue
fighting to hold BP accountable and to push the
Administration so that ourpeople can return to their way of
life as quickly as possible,

4-H goes buggy with Forensic Entomology
A4-H'er gets a taste of a fried
mealworm at a recent Day
Camp in Bristol.
How many insects have you eaten today?
On July 29, Cathia Schmarje and the 4-H staff came
to work and found that they had a Black Bear Murder
Mystery to solve as part of their Day Camp activities.
Someone had left the remains for the kids to evaluate,'
observe and find out who killed the black bear. They
observed the remains for three days watching insects
come, go and stay while giving clues the whole time so
they could solve the crime.
While doing so they, also investigated how some
insects were beneficial to us while others were nothing
but pests. They also did experiments in the repellency
lab with different kinds of oils, apples and crickets to
determine if the oils were a repellent and to see if the
ones they used would drive away the crickets.
During the three days they tasted and made many
different snacks that looked liked insects but their
favorite appetizer of Day Camp was the delicious fried
mealworms and mealworm chocolate chip cookies.
These youth had a great time learning and having fun.
If you would like to know more about Liberty County
4-H give us a call at 643-2229. We are looking for adult
volunteers to lead club meetings throughout the year.

/ am from Louisiana and I know our beaches are our home,
our way of life and our livelihood. Protecting the coast and
cleaning up the beaches is very personal to me.
Keith Seilhan, BP Cleanup
Making This Right
Health and Safety
At BP we have taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. We are
committed to keeping you informed.
Looking For Oil
Crews are cleaning Gulf Coast beaches 24 hours a day,.7 days a week. When oil is
spotted, the Response Command Center is notified, a Shore Cleanup Assessment
Team (SCAT) is mobilized and cleanup begins immediately. Cleanup efforts are being
coordinated from 17 staging areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
Over 33,000 people are involved in the cleanup operation.
If you see oil on the beach, please call 1-866-448-5816 and we'll send a team to
clean it up.
Cleaning Up the Beaches
The number of people mobilized to clean up the beaches depends on the size of
the affected area. Individual teams can number in the hundreds, and thousands
of additional workers remain on-call. Working with the Coast Guard, our teams
continue cleaning up until the last bit of oil has been removed. As a result, in most
cases when oil reaches a beach, it is even possible to keep it open.
Our.beach cleanup operations will continue until the last of the oil has been
skimmed from the sea, the beaches and estuaries have been cleaned up, and
the region has been pronounced oil-free. And none of the costs of our efforts
will be paid by taxpayers.
Our commitment is that we'll be here for as long as it takes. We may not always be
perfect, but we will make this right.
