Drug sting leads to arrest

of Travis Mosley

A drug sting by the
Blountstown Police Department
(BPD) led to the arrest of a
Chattahoochee man on charges
of sale of a controlled substance
(cocaine) within 1,000 feet of a
housing project and possession
of a controlled substance
(cocaine) with intent to sell.
Travis Sintell "Punkin"
Mosley, 29, was arrested after
officers monitored him hand
over approximately one gram of
crack to an informant for $100
along Azalea Street around
1:30 p.m. Monday, according to
BPD Major Rodney Smith.
When officers arrived at the
scene, Mosley sped off in his
rental car down Palm Street.

Journal Editor
Teresa Eubanks

"He fled a quarter of a mile in
his vehicle, did a doughnut or
two, ran into a ditch and then
came back up on the road and
stopped," said Smith. "Officers
got him out of the car and into
the handcuffs without incident."
Smith said they believe he
tossed out some cocaine while

racing away from them. Four
crack cocaine rocks, estimated
to be worth about $100, were
found in the seat of car.
Along with the crack cocaine,
officers seized $2,000 in cash,
including the marked bills used
minutes earlier in the exchange
between Mosley and the buyer.
The arrest came after a month-
long investigation of Mosley,
who grew up in Blountstown
and has served time following
a previous drug arrest, Smith
Officers from the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department
and the Florida Department of
Transportation assisted in the
investigation and arrest.

Combative couple arrested on

charge of domestic battery

A Blountstown couple was arrested for
domestic battery after a dispute over a phone
call led to a fight, a broken glass.table and a
bloody laceration, according to a report from
the Blountstown Police Department.
Arrested April 23 was George Huie, 43, and
Demetria Yolanda Moore, 36.
When Officer Timothy Partridge responded
to a call at Azelea Drive just before 10 p.m.,
he found Moore covered in blood from a cut
on her left hand.
Moore stated that when she walked in to
find Huie talking on the phone with another

woman, she pushed him in the face to get him
off the phone. She said Huie then pushed her
over a coffee table, causing the glass to break
and cut her hand.
Huie said Moore also scratched him in the
face before the pushing began.
Moore later stated that she stumbled over
the coffee table and then cut herself.
Both acknowledged that they had been
drinking, according to the report.
The two were charged and Moore received
treatment for her laceration.

Florida Senate passed legislation
Monday to reform the state's
Baker Act. The bill was
named in honor of Anthony
Forgione, an Okaloosa County
Sheriff's Deputy who was killed
attempting to retrieve a patient
who had repeatedly walked
away from Fort Walton Beach
Medical Center.

Senator Don Gaetz (R-Niceville)
and Representative Brad Drake
(R-DeFuniak Springs), will
require law enforcement

that a person in custody, who
is being transported under the
Baker Act, can be relinquished
only to a responsible individual

After being admitted to the
facility, a patient who requires
psychiatric care, but does not

"The need for this bill was
evident following the tragedy that
occurred in our county," Gaetz
said. "The legislation doesn't
point fingers at anyone but does
point a better way forward in
transporting, safeguarding and
treating Baker Act patients."
"Representative Drake and I
also wanted this law as a living

memorial for Deputy Forgione,"
the senator explained. "At
a time when the badge has
been tarnished by the improper
actions of a few, we want to
lift up the memory of Tony
Forgione and honor the daily
acts of bravery and duty by the

Why are inmates allowed

to clean our courthouse?
To the editor:
I am a citizen of Liberty County. I would like to express
my opinion on a "sticky" situation that some people may not
be aware of.
I have recently found out that the janitor for the Liberty
County Courthouse had retired. Instead of filling the position
with someone that needs a job, the Sheriff's Department has
decided to take it upon themselves to allow incarcerated in-
mates to take over this job. Please note the Sheriff's Depart-
mert receives $1,000 dollars each month for this service.
However, my point is if I was to apply for this job I would
be turned down because of my background check. I don't un-
derstand, if I am not able to fill this position for that reason,
then why are inmates allowed. It seems to me our records are
somewhat similar. What is the need for a background at all?
Why not discontinue it at all jobs?
So let me clarify a few things, there is a lot of very important
court documents and personal data in our courthouse. I don't
think that a lot of people feel comfortable that their records or
personal business is within reach of inmates. An officer cannot
monitor every move all the time and we all know this. Isn't
this some type of liability? If they can work there, why can't
I? I think I know the answer. Free labor with a financial gain
for the Sheriff's Department.
According to the Calhoun-Liberty Journal minutes, two
of the board members voted against this Jim Johnson and
Kevin Williams. The other three voted for it Dexter Barber,
Albert Butcher and Davis Stoutamire. C'ion guys! Is this
fair? Is this how our whole country is ran and we just don't
know it?. What's really going on? I guess the old saying is
true-Money does talk!
Sherry McCardle, Bristol

Recent patient has 'nothing

but praise' for hospital staff
To the editor:
Recently I spent some time as a patient at our local Calhoun
Liberty Hospital. From the arrival of the very efficient EMT's
until the day I was discharged I have nothing but praise for the
care I received from the doctors, nurses and aides. I was im-
pressed by the care I received in the ER; the new equipment and
the technicians that operated them. Also the cleanliness of the
room, th6 food and the kindness of the staff.
I hope that anyone needing emergency care or hospitalization
will not hesitate to use our hometown facility.

Springs in order to hear their stories of the 'old days' at the spring.
We are especially interested in stories before 1970."
The event begins at 11 a.m. with an informal visit with friends

Jackson County for nearly 200 years. It has been a special place to
swim, picnic, relax and play hooky from school. Family reunions,
Fourth of July celebrations, school outings and church baptisms are
all part of the springs story. Come join us as we add to that history."

st During my years in the military,

ok accepted rules of warfare, but as Americans, we would.
or- The Geneva Conventions were promulgated in 1949,
sixty years ago, and the United States is a signatory,
AN meaning that America has agreed to abide by the rules of
this international covenant. What is known as Common
ng Article III is that section of the GenAva Conventions that
ed states how prisoners of war will be treated. The follow-
cts ing is an extract from Article III:
"To this end the following acts are and shall remain
ys prohibited at any time and in any place whatsoever with
respect to the above-mentioned persons:
NO (a) violence to life and person, in particular murder of
all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture;
na, (b) taking of hostages;
he (c) outrages upon personal dignity, in particular, hu-
ah, miliating and degrading treatment;
ias (d) the passing of sentences and the carrying out of
AN executions without previous judgment pronounced by
a regularly constituted court affording all the judicial
es- guarantees which are recognized as indispensable by
ent civilized peoples.
The wounded and sick shall be collected and cared for.
An impartial humanitarian body, such as the Interna-
ax- tional Committee of the Red Cross, may offer its services
NO to the Parties to the conflict."
The Bush administration said that it was necessary to
to- use "enhanced interrogation techniques" on suspected
dly terrorists in order to gain information about potential at-
irst tacks on America.
ing According to the Pew Research Center for the Public
car and the press, the public is divided on this issue. About
ON half of the public believe that the Bush method was nec-
essary to keep America safe and the other half believe
net that the Bush administration was engaged in torturing the
ed, enemy in violation of the Geneva Conventions.
The International Red Cross, the impartial humanitar-
ian body mentioned in the Geneva Conventions, inspect-
ed America's prisons holding enemy combatants, talked

with the prisoners and concluded that
X'S torture techniques had been used. The
N ER Bush. administration's Department of
RNE Justice stated in writing how enhanced
retired military interrogation techniques would be car-
with an extensive ried out. These memos are now in the
domestic and public domain and people can decide
;ues. He lives in for themselves.
. / America's military leadership is op-
posed to torturing people to gain in-
formation. Common sense tells us that
people are going to tell you what you want to hear when
you are about to kill them. I like Jack Bauer in the televi-
sion show "24," but as interrogators will tell you, torture
will get you a response but not necessarily the truth.
Talking to people works. I was a military police of-
ficer for five years. When we apprehended someone sus-
pected of a petty crime like stealing government property
or his roommate's money we would put them in a bare
room with only a table and a couple of chairs and start
talking. By the end of the day, we would have his story.
If not, we locked him up and started again the next day.
They always talked.
Getting a confession on a crime is one thing but get-
ting intelligence information is a different problem. My
experience in the intelligence business is that informa-
tion is compartmentalized so if one agent is captured, he
or she does not know the entire plan. Most of us have
little information that is important to the enemy. If I had
been captured when I was shot down in Cambodia I
didn't know any vital information affecting the strategic
national interest of the U.S.
We were bombing them, they were shooting at us, so
what's new? Nothing. Yes, tomorrow the fighters will be
back and bomb targets in Cambodia again. And they will
be back the next day and the next...
Did I expect the Cambodian Khmer Rouge insurgents
to beat the stuffing out of me and most likely kill me?
Yes, but there was nothing that I could tell them that they
didn't know. We bombed them, they shot back.
The media, the government, particularly former Vice
President Cheney, and many people are caught up in the
technical aspects of torturing. The technicality of twist-
ing the arm off a prisoner is not the issue. The issue is
we going to lower our standards because some elected
official believes that the end deserves the means.
If, as Americans, we are going to believe that the end
always justifies the means then we are on the slippery
slope of immorality. Not a good choice.


gvia IfS .........WASHINGTON



by Douglas Cohn and Eleanor-Clift

WASHINGTON It's not unusual for a former president to
defend his legacy, but to'have a former vice president actively
making the rounds on his own behalf is highly unusual. But
then, Dick Cheney wasn't an ordinary vice-president. He was
the overseer for a legacy president who was groomed and
selected for the job but so inexperienced in the ways of the
world that his biggest backers, beginning with his parents,
felt he needed adult supervision.
It's hard to believe now that President Bush's poll ratings
are so low, but Bush brought the charm to the Bush-Cheney
administration while Cheney from the start acted as the
enforcer, the dark influence that earned him the moniker,
Darth Vader. Bush had his high moments, and his lows, but
Cheney never changed. He never had a kind word for the
Bill of Rights, or any kind of rights for that matter, and he
viewed international law as an unwarranted infringement of
U.S. sovereignty.
Cheney justified his extreme views under the auspices of
national security. The 9/11 attacks gave Cheney and his allies
throughout the administration the opening they needed. When
frightened, people choose safety over freedom, which is one
of the reasons the tactics of the last eight years received so
little scrutiny. Top congressional leaders, the so-called Gang
of Four, briefed after 9/11 by CIA director George Tenet and
his deputy about enhanced interrogation techniques, did not
voice any objection. Without staff support and denied the abil-
ity to even take notes, the lawmakers were flying blind, they
say, and didn't fully grasp the extent to which the administra-
tion had twisted the law along with American principles.
Besides burnishing his legacy, Cheney is positioning him-
self as defender of the nation. He's not at all subtle about it.
In interviews with CNN-and Fox News, he says that when
President Obama retreats from the policies and practices of the
Bush administration, he puts the nation in jeopardy. Cheney
is setting up Obama in the event of a future attack so he can
say, "I told you so."
The way Cheney views his role is that he is performing
a service by alerting the politicians and the people to the
threats that are out there, just as the great British leader of
the last century, Winston Churchill, repeatedly warned of
the Nazi threat years before his countrymen would listen to
him. Churchill was out of power and out of favor in political
circles in the decade leading.up to World War II. He called
this period his "Wilderness Years." Then Germany invaded
Poland, followed by the Netherlands, Belgium and France,
all of which forced the resignation of Prime Minister Neville
Chamberlain and made way for Churchill. Chamberlain had
been so eager to avoid war that his very name is equated with
Churchill was 66 years old when he became prime minister
in 1940, eager to lead his country, indeed the Western powers,
through the conflagration that he had so long worried would
occur. His time had come, and his leadership throughout the
war along with his rhetorical gifts insured him a prominent
place in the history books. Cheney turned 68 in January of
this year, and is surely aware of the parallels between himself
and Churchill, the tirelessness in the face of critics warning
of potential threats, the disrespect they suffered from their
countrymen, the ultimate vindication that was Churchill's
and could someday be Cheney's. Still, it's doubtful that
even his most stalwart supporters look at Cheney and see
Churchill. Churchill was a defender of rights, freedom, and
strength. Cheney is a defender of strength. And with the
Republican Party at its lowest ebb in some time, Cheney's
wilderness period is just beginning. Dick Cheney is no Win-
ston Churchill:

14th Annual Big River Round-up Flathead Catfish

Tournament planned is for Memorial Day weekend

BLOUNTSTOWN The Blointstown Rotary Club
will host the 14th annual Big River Roundup Florida
Flathead Catfish Tournament Memorial Day weekend,
May 22-23.
The Roundup was the first organized flathead catfish
tournament in Florida when it began in 1996 with the vi-
sionary efforts of the Blountstown Rotary Club member-
ship and the cooperation of the Florida Game and Fresh-
water Commission. At that time, the tournament served
as a fundraiser and helped maintain the ever-growing
population of the flathead catfish in the Apalachicola
River system.
The success of the first event spurred the eventual
creation of four other such flathead tournaments in the

Florida panhandle. Over the past fourteen years, approx-
imately 3,000 fishermen have participated in the "Big
River Roundup", and an estimated 14,000 pounds of cat-
fish have made it to weigh in..
The "Big River Roundup Florida Flathead Catfish
Championship" tournament is unlike any other with
fierce competition between locals for bragging rights,
cash prizes, and $50,000 at stake if the current State Re-
cord is broken during the event. Blountstown Rotary is
proud to say that their tournament has graced the pages
of Field & Stream, Florida Fish & Game, and GAFF
magazines. As word of the tournament has spread, fish-
erman from Mississippi, GeOrgia, Alabama, Arkansas,
Tennessee, South Carolina, and even as far as Ohio have

regularly traveled to take their chances at winning the
The tournament entry fee for adults is $50 per person
if pre-registering or $55 per person at the gate. Those
15-years-old and under may enter in the youth category
for $25 per person. The first 100 pre-registration par-
ticipants are eligible to receive 10 free bream for bait.
Individuals are encouraged to pre-register to be included
in a special pre-registration prize drawing.

FSU takes

jazz concerts

to schools

and prisons

May 11-17
concerts featuring the music of
Cole Porter are coming soon to
traditionally underserved audi-
ences in North Florida, thanks to
a groundbreaking outreach pro-
gram from The Florida State Uni-
versity College of Music and its
student and facultyjazzvirtuosos.
Over the course of seven days,
May 11-17, members of the in-
novative tour, "American Jazz
Masterpieces: The FSU College
of Music Presents Cole Porter,"
will perform a series of outreach
concerts and teach accompa-
nying "masterclasses" at eight
public schools (middle and high
schools) and four correctional
facilities within a 90-mile radius
of Tallahassee in Leon, Taylor,
Madison, Jackson, Wakulla, Jef-
ferson and Gadsden counties.
But first, on Saturday, May
9, the jazz tour will kick off
close to home with a free public
concert at 8 p.m. in Opperman
Music Hall on Florida State's
main campus in. Tallahassee.
The special send-off concert will
feature performances by FSU's
renowned jazz faculty -- includ-
ing Scotty Barnhart, Leon An-
derson, Bill Peterson and other
luminaries -- and by internation-
ally known jazz vocalist Inga
Swearingen, an FSU College of
Music alumna.
"Our outreach project, which
is funded in part by a grant from
the National Endowment for the
Arts, aims to expose underserved
audiences in diverse settings to
American jazz masterworks by
greats such as Cole Porter that
they might not otherwise have
the opportunity to hear and ap-
preciate," said FSU Professor
Leo Welch, the College of Mu-
sic's associate dean for public
The tour's masterclasses will
address a number of standards set
forth by the National Association
for Music Education, including
exposing its public school and
correctional facility audiences
to a varied repertoire of music
and helping them to improvise
melodies, variations and accom-
paniments; listen to, analyze and
describe music; evaluate music
and music performances; and
understand music in relation to
history and culture.
The "American Jazz Master-
pieces" tour is sponsored in part
by the State of Florida Depart-
ment of State (Division of Cul-
tural Affairs), the Florida Arts
Council, and the Knight Founda-
tion, in partnership with the Na-
tional Endowment for the Arts.

A group of fathers, uncles and big brothers
got together to spend some time with the
young boys of the Mayhaw Community
Saturday night, treating 36 kids to an
overnight camp out atthe first Mayhaw Tent
Summit in Cooper's Park. The group pitched
tents, watched Remember the Titans and
Antwone Fisher on a big screen, toasted
marshmallows and walked the Greenway
Trail. The tent summit was the idea of
Calhoun County School Board member,
Kenneth Speights, who says it's important
that youngsters in his community interact
with positive male role models. 'There's
so much more for them than standing on
the corner selling drugs," he said of the
neighborhood children. Speights said he
believes there are approximately 90 males
from the community who are currently
incarcerated "who have left their sons
and families behind," which makes it so
important to connect kids with mentors. He
is in the process of arranging a planning
meeting soon to set dates for future camp
outs, which he hopes to hold quarterly.
He said there
are also plans
for gatherings
with girls and the
women of the
community at an
upcoming Mayhaw
Tea Party.

Planted a Norwayspruce and
now it seems to be leaning. How
can I straighten it?
-K. M, Williamsport, Penn.
Depending upon how long
ago you planted it, you can still
adjust it if it was very recently.
You can remove some of the
surrounding soil and resettle the
root ball. Gently repack the soil
in around the roots when finished
and water thoroughly to aid in the
resettling. If you think it's been in
the ground long enough for the
roots to attach to the native soil,
you may consider just leaving
the leaning tree alone. Its top will
grow straight up toward the light
and in a few years will at least
appear straight. We wouldn't
recommend staking unless the
tree is in an overly windy spot.
What is the meaning behind
being "three sheets to the
wind"? -N. A., Canby, Minn.
If you are "three sheets to
the wind," stay home and go to
bed. The term is an old sailing
phrase meaning drunk. The three-
masted, square-rigged sailing
ships were the origin. Letting
a sheet (sail) fly into the wind
caused it to flap uselessly. If all
three sheets were let fly, the ship
would lose headway and made'
"boards and half-boards" as they

said -- in other words, it made
an erratic movement through the

or grapefruit juice was thought to
quicken the sobering up process.
Unfortunately, neither was apt
to be available at sea. Rubbing
the armpits with a sliced lemon
was another hangover "cure"
that still has its fans today. A
sweetened glass of orange juice
or other citrus drink is touted to
help relieve the morning-after
Some types of alcohol are
quicker to give headaches than
others. Vodka, gin, and white

wine are relatively benign, while
bourbon, brandy, Scotch, rum, rye,
cognac, whiskey, and champagne
are quicker routes to hangovers.
Any bubbly drink (champagne) or
cocktail made with a carbonated
mixer (e.g. rum and cola) will
bring on the headaches faster.
To prevent hangovers, avoid
very cheap liquors as well as
very sweet liquors (sherry, port,
apricot brandy, etc.), but for the
best relief of all, abstain!
Our cat is about to have kittens,
and I'm concerned about how to
make the house safe for them.
-T F, Kokomo, Ind.
Since you have a cat, you have
probably created a cat-friendly
environment already, but there
are additional considerations that
you might want to make for the
wee arrivals. Kittens are more
vulnerable to drowning than adult
cats, so be sure that any areas of
open water are kept sealed off

from access. This would include
mop buckets, watering cans,
toilets, bathtubs, and the like.
Likewise, kittens may be more
prone to eating small objects
such as coins, rubber bands,
paper clips, screws, yarn, string,
earrings, or sewing implements.
You'd be amazed at some of
the things veterinarians find on
their Xrays! Run the dust mop
under furniture to sweep up lost
items such as these -- you will
save your pet a lot of discomfort
and yourself some expensive vet
Kittens love to find small, cozy
nests for their frequent naps, and
it is not uncommon to discover
them seeking out the warm clothes
dryer or a dark interior corner of
the reclining chair as their choice
of spots. Keep the dryer closed
and the recliner in its upright
position, or expect to count noses
before you use either. Rocking
chairs, too, can be hazardous for
the unsuspecting kitten, as can
swinging doors, slide rockers,
wheeled office chairs, or virtually

need to remove them all -- just
be mindful! You may want to
provide a scratching post and play
toys, as well, in the hope that the
kittens will make use of these
suitable alternatives instead of
your favorite upholstered chairs.
A final caution is against
poisonous materials, such as
antifreeze spills (attractive to
animals and very toxic) and certain
plants (hydrangea, eucalyptus,
and others). Household cleaners
can also pose a hazard, either if
left accessible or if kittens roll on
or walk in their residues. Consider
switching to "green" cleaners
(vinegar and water, or baking
soda and water, for example)
or be sure to rinse surfaces well
after using the harsher ones.
Medicines, too, should be kept
safely stored away.

FL Dept. of
Is there swine flu
in Florida?
As of April 28, there are no
confirmed cases in Florida,
What is Florida doing to
protect me from swine flu?
We have epidemiologist
or "disease detectives" at the
County Health Departments
and in Tallahassee. There is
a detailed plan in place to re-
spond to influenza outbreaks.
Florida has a strong system
to identify potential influenza
*Our state laboratories have
the equipment and trained staff
to identify influenza samples.
*We have 100 physicians
who report flu activity to us on
a weekly basis.
*We have access to a data-
base that tracks over the coun-
ter drugs to provide us with
early warning of potential flu
*We also track 106 emer-
gency departments throughout
the state to analyze trends in
types of illnesses.
Is this swine flu
virus contagious?
Swine influenza is conta--
gious and is spreading from
human to human. However,
at this time, it not known how
easily the virus spreads be-
tween people.
What are the signs and symp-
toms ofswine flu in people?
The symptoms of swine flu
in people are similar to the
symptoms of regular human
flu and include fever, cough,
sore throat, body aches, head-
ache, chills and fatigue. Some
people have reported diarrhea
and vomiting associated with
swine flu. Like seasonal flu,
swine flu may cause a wors-
ening of underlying chronic
medical conditions.
How does swine flu spread?
Spread of this swine influ-
enza A (H IN1) virus is thought
to be happening in the same
way that seasonal flu spreads.
Flu viruses are spread mainly
from person to person through
coughing or sneezing of peo-
ple with influenza. Sometimes
people may become infected
by touching something with flu
viruses on it and then touching
their mouth or nose.
How can someone with the
flu infect someone else?
Infected people may be able
to infect others beginning 1
day before symptoms develop
and up to 7 or more days af-
ter becoming sick. That means
that you may be able to pass
on the flu to someone else be-
fore you know you are sick, as
well as while you are sick.
What should I do to keep
from getting the flu?
First and most important:
wash your hands. Try to stay
in good general health. Get

Health adc
plenty of sleep, be physically
active, manage your stress,
drink plenty of fluids, and eat
nutritious food. Try not touch
surfaces that may be contami-
nated with the flu virus. Avoid
close contact with people who
are sick.
Are there medicines to
treat swine flu?
Yes. Antiviral drugs are
prescription medicines (pills,
liquid or an inhaler) that fight
against the flu by keeping flu
viruses from reproducing in
your body. If you get sick, an-
tiviral drugs can make your ill-
ness milder and make you feel
better faster. They may also
prevent serious flu complica-
tions. For treatment, antivi-
ral drugs work best if started
soon after getting sick (within
2 days of symptoms). Con-
tact your doctor to see if you
should receive anti virals.
How long can an infected
person spread swine flu to
SPeople with swine influenza
virus infection should be con-
sidered potentially contagious
as long as they are symptom-
atic and possible for up to 7
days following illness onset.
Children, especially younger
children, might potentially be
contagious for longer periods.
What surfaces are most
likely to be sources
of contamination?
Germs can be spread when a
person touches something that
is contaminated with' germs
and then touches his or her
eyes, nose, or mouth. Droplets
from a cough or sneeze of an
infected person move through
the air. Germs can be spread
when a person touches respi-
ratory droplets from another
person on a surface like a desk
and then touches their own
eyes, mouth or nose before
washing their hands.
How long can viruses
live outside the body?
We know that some viruses
and bacteria can live 2 hours
or longer on surfaces like caf-
eteria tables, doorknobs, and
desks. Frequent handwashing
will help you reduce the chance
of getting contamination from
these common surfaces.
What can I do to protect
myselffrom getting sick?
There is no vaccine available
right now to protect against
swine flu. There are everyday
actions that can help prevent
-the spread of germs that cause
respiratory illnesses like in-
fluenza. Take these everyday
steps to protect your health:
VCover your nose and
mouth with a tissue when you
cough or sneeze. Throw the

If you are sick, limit your
contact with other people
as much as possible. Do not
go to work or school if ill.
Cover your mouth and nose
with a tissue when coughing
or sneezing. It may prevent
those around you from getting
sick. Put your used tissue in
the waste basket. Cover your
cough or sneeze if you do not
have a tissue. Then, clean your
hands, and do so every time
you cough or sneeze.
What is the best technique
for washing my hands to
avoid getting the flu?
Washing your hands often
will help protect you from
germs. Wash with soap and
water or clean with alcohol-
based hand cleaner. We rec-
ommend that when you wash
your hands -- with soap and
warm water -- that you wash
for 15 to 20 seconds. When
soap and water are not avail-
able, alcohol-based disposable
hand wipes or gel sanitizers
may be used. You can find
them in most supermarkets
and drugstores. If using gel,
rub your hands until the gel is
dry. The gel doesn't need water
to work; the alcohol in it kills
the germs on your hands.
What should I do if I get
If you become ill with influ-
enza-like symptoms, including
fever, body aches, runny nose,
sore throat, nausea, or vomit-
ing or diarrhea, you may want
to contact their health care pro-
vider, particularly if you are
worried about your symptoms.
Your health care provider will
determine whether influenza
.testing or treatment is needed.
If you are sick, you should
stay home and avoid contact
with other people as much as
possible to keep from spread-
ing your illness to others.
If you become ill and ex-
perience any of the following
warning signs, seek emergen-
cy medical care.
In children, emergency
warning signs that need

Arrested chihuahua breeder said

puppy sales were 'my salvation'

In 1986, Beth Hall bought an isolated piece
of property in Calhoun County, sight unseen, for
$800. She moved there a couple of months later.

About ten years later, the "Grump OCld Men's
Club" of Calhoun County came together to build
her a small house funded by donations from the
Her group of prized Chihuahuas continued
to breed and grow, providing
her with a way to supplement a
disability income of about $700
a month.
Through the years, she
brought other animals to her
home. "The horses were my
pets, the dogs were the wage
earners. Puppy sales were my
She knows the horses were
not doing well but she was in
the process of getting some
smaller bales of hay so she
could feed them since she
-couldn't manage the six larger
bales she had in a storage shed.
One of the horses "was wild
as a jackrabbit" and the other
horses were keeping it from the
food, she said.
She said that while she
occasionally sold one of her
many goats, they were a big
help in keeping the fire hazard
down around her property
by eating the brush. And,
sometimes, she had to use one
of the goats for food. But, she
added, "that was rare."
She knows the animals '
didn't get the best of care. But,
given her health and financial
issues, she said she did her best.

"I have knee joints that need replacement I got nothing to live for. The only third
surgery, nodules in my thyroid and a cared about was feeding and caring
blockage in the blood vessels to my brain, my animals."

She said their care came before her own.
When money was tight, "I bought their food
before I bought food for me."
She said b. taking her dogs away, her business
has been destroyed. "I had that bloodline for
o er 20 years." she said of the Chihuahuas she
raised and sold. "I never signed anything to
authorize them to take away my dogs."

Mla\inmus. Blueberry, Horsefeathers, Foxy Lady
and Alaska. Some slept in her
bed with her.
S. Hall, who uses a wheelchair,
called the people who came
to her home to haul off her
animals Friday, "Animal
Rights Natzis." She said the
name fit, "after the way they
tore in here and ran off with
my goods." And they are
valuable animals. "I charge
$350 for a male, $450 for a
female and $600 if I'm sure
it's going to be a Teacup,"
she said.
"Yes, the house has a smell.
I have a gentleman help me
clean the floors when I can,"
she said. She knows the fleas
are bad but "I put flea dope on
them repeatedly."
She said that people with
good jobs don't know what
it's like to be in her place. "I
can't stand up, I'd fall down.
My hands are crippled too
much to type. I can't work as
a greeter at Wal-Mart because
I'm in a wheelchair," she said.
"I know it's a tangle.
Frankly, I'm sorry I ever saw
Bay County or Blountstown,"
she said.
"I'm a landowner here and
ig I I don't owe any money here. I don't have
for any family anywhere and no kids."
She added, "All I'm after is survival."

"We anticipate awarding the

is May 13 for FWC's

new game farm rules

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) approved new language
Wednesday, April 15 regarding
establishment and operation of
game farms.
Game farms have been
regulated by Florida Statutes
since the 1920s. Through the
years there has been very little
change to the statutory language
dealing with game farms.
Currently, there is not a rule
in the Florida Administrative
Code that specifically addresses
establishment or operation of
game farms. Development of this

Gregory House

closing for repairs
Due to a much needed floor
refinishing, the Historic Gregory
House will be closed for tours
from May 4 through May 17 and
re-open on Monday May 18. We
are sorry for any inconvenience
and look forward to completion
of this worthy project.

rule is in anticipation of the repeal
of the statute.
This rule combines substantive
portions of the statute and current
captive wildlife standards. The
change also provides an exemption
to license requirements for
individuals purchasing eggs for
consumption, addresses record-
keeping requirements, allows
license holders to transport live
game to processing facilities, and
provides exemption to the license
requirement for possession of
50 or fewer live bobwhite quail
or nonnative game birds, except
waterfowl. The exemption
applies when such game birds are
for personal use, consumption,
educational or other not-for-sale
or exhibition purpose.
The FWC also will require
game farms to meet current captive
wildlife standards regarding
housing and transportation of
game. The new rule language
requires game farm to be fenced
in such a manner that domestic
game cannot escape.

The animals were in varying stages
of health, according to Hubbard.
"All of the dogs were infested
with fleas; some were very thin while
some were in good weight," she said,
and noted that the dogs kept inside
the home were in the worst health.
"Their gums were just white. They
were horribly anemic."
There was a lot of variety in the
dogs, she said. "There are some very
nice dogs all colors and all sizes."
She said the horses were emaciated,
although some "were in better flesh."
She added, "Those are the ones that
got to the food faster."
Director of Bay County Animal
Control Jim Crosby pointed out,
"She was not arrested for breeding
dogs. She was arrested for animal
cruelty the conditions under which
she was keeping them in substandard
conditions without proper care."
He noted, "We're not picking
on dog breeders. We're picking on
people who are not treating their
animals correctly. Whether it's one
animal or 100 animals, animal cruelty
is animal cruelty. That's where we
have an issue."
He said the dogs were not being
bred properly. "Some of the animals
were 10, 11 and 12 years old and had
been bred to the point that they were
just about broken down," he said.
"They're going to be O.K. but you
can tell they've been bred to the point
they're used up."
He explained that responsible
breeders don't breed an animal before
the age of two, and later, leave a year
between breeding.

The horses have been turned over
to a rescue group while the dogs are
at Bay Animal Control. He said the
dogs would not be euthanized. He
hopes to put them up for adoption
by the public and those not adopted
by the public will be turned over to
local rescue and no-kill groups, he
"Right now, they're being fed and
cared for and their veterinary needs
are being addressed. Volunteers came
over the weekend to bathe them and
they got warm blankets to sleep on.
They are no longer caked in feces and
laying in urine."
He said the pregnant dogs are
being sponsored off site. "We didn't
want the puppies exposed to any of
the diseases a working animal shelter
has in it."
He said pre-applications are being
accepted at Bay Animal Control.'
There is a $75 adoption fee. All will
be spayed or neutered before being
turned over to a permanent home.
He added that senior citizens who are
age 62 or above can adopt an animal
for half price.
Bay Animal Control is two miles
north of Star Avenue off Hwy. 231,
just south of Youngstown, at 6401
Bay Line Road.

Spice up you
Looking for a hot landscape plant? Try
ornamental pepper. Ornamental peppers
are compact plants, reaching ten to twenty
inches in height. Their size, interesting
foliage, and attractive fruit make them
ideal plants for a container garden or at the
front of a border. You can also use them
as a groundcover.
Ornamental peppers produce colorful
fruits from late spring through fall. The
fruits come in a range of colors including
red, purple, yellow, and orange. Many
varieties also have interesting and attractive
foliage, including variegated forms.
You can plant ornamental peppers
several times during the year. Many people
plant i inid-spring and enjoy the colorful
foliage and fruit all the way through the
fall until the first killing frost. It is also
popular, and widely accepted, to plant
ornamental peppers in mid- to late summer
(July September) for a nice color addition

r landscape with ornamental peppers

to the fall landscape. '
These plants are easy by Ther
to maintain. They do best Horticulture
in full sun. Soil pH is not Santa
critical, but slightly acid
conditions (5.5-6.0) are most preferable.
SChose a spot with well drained soil and
irrigate during dry spells. Space plants
according to the mature size for the variety
chosen. When planting in the spring,
fertilize at planting and again at a half rate
in early to mid-summer. When planting
in mid- or late summer, a fertilization at
planting will normally last through the
A few of my favorite varieties include
Chilly Chili (an All-America Selection in
2002), Medusa and Black Pearl. There are,
however, many new and exciting varieties
to try.
Chilly Chili is a compact ornamental
pepper that produces a heavy load of mild,


two-inch long, erect
sa Friday, chilies. The chilies start
tension Agent, green, and then change
isa County through chartreuse and
orange on their way
to a deep, waxy red. Because the plant is
indeterminate in its growth habit, it has
fruit in all stages of development and gives
a handsome blend of colors throughout
the summer and fall. The indeterminate
growth habit means that plants will have
fruit on display'from July until frost, with
the plant gaining beauty as the season
Medusa is a consistent performer and
unique with the 'snaky Medusa hairdo'
peppers in colors ranging and changing
from ivory to yellow to orange to bright
red. I've had this pepper return each year in
my garden from seed that fell the previous
Black Pearl is famous for its deep

purple, almost black leaves. The compact,
upright plants bear distinctive semi-glossy,
deep purple to black leaves, complemented
with scores of shiny round black-purple
"pearls" of fruit that mature to bright red.
Like most peppers, it's edible, though
VERY hot. This plant withstands high heat
and humidity.
All ornamental peppers are very heat-
tolerant and will make a great addition to
the late-summer and fall landscape along
the Gulf Coast.
Despite their name, many ornamental
peppers are edible and tasty. But many are
very spicy and.very hot. People without,
a sturdy palate will enjoy just looking at
them. Medusa and Chilly Chili bear non-
burning, "child-safe" fruit, making them
ideal for indoor and outdoor use in both
public and residential areas once thought
unsuitable for the traditional "too-hot-to-
handle" ornamental peppers.

Week ofApr. 26 to May 2

ARIES-Mar21/Apr 20
An important assignment
comes your way, Aries. Enlist as
much help as possible so you get
the job done promptly and to the
best of your abilities.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Taurus, that business venture
you've been thinking about
has the makings of a success.
Still, this may not be the
week to make any financial
investments toward that end.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Single Gemini will find a
new mate this week. Gemini
in a relationship will strengthen
his or her relationship even
more. Good days for love are
Tuesday and Saturday.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul22
Cancer, now is the time to start
living healthier. Schedule an
appointment with your doctor
for a physical and make some
positive changes to your lifestyle.

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Leo, there's not much you
can touch this week that won't
work in your favor. It's easy to
get a big head. But you won't
let the ego get that far. A reality
check comes on Thursday.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, there have been a lot
of changes in your life. But you
adapt very well and can roll with
the punches. Others around you,
however, are more easily shaken.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, you find yourself in a
predicament when two friends
ask you take sides: There's nothing
you can do than to bow out
gracefully from this other
"competition" of sorts.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22-
Rest and relaxation is what
you need, Scorpio. You have
been pushing yourself much too
hard lately and the cracks are
starting to show in your veneer.

Sagittarius, make the most
of time spent with family
members, because soon you
will be preoccupied by
work commitments. You'll
get a break on Friday.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Capricorn, some people are quick
to put the blame on you. But you
know better than to let false ac-
cusations throw you. Rally some
supporters and you'll pull through.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Aquarius, you feel secure in your
finances, and you're considering
a frivolous purchase just to make
yourself smile. Will you be smil-
ing when the bill comes in?

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
Throw a party, take a trip, go
to a concert. There are so many
options for fun at your disposal.
Pick one this week, Pisces.

Bon Ami Supplemental Analysis

District Ranger Marcus Beard de-
cided to row thin a 69 acre slash
pine stand (Compartment 64,
stand 18) in the Bon Ami Analy-
sis Area. This stand is located in
section 28 of Township 4 South
(T4S), Range 7 West (R7W) of
Liberty County, Florida. The pur-
pose of the proposed action is to
improve the habitat for the Red-
cockaded woodpecker by reduc-
ing stand densities, for long-term
improvement of forest health, and
RCW habitat. A connected ac-
tion includes approximately 0.7
mile of road reconstruction and
maintenance. Funds would also
be collected for stands within the
sale area to support the 3-year
prescribed burn cycle. Thinning
would yield and estimated 4 ccf/ac
of timber products and take place
within the next three to five years.

peal pursuant to 36 CFR 215.11.
