Altha woman killed when minivan overturns Tuesday


Emergency workers found the passenger had been killed and the driver injured
when this van overturned on Hwy. 71. JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTO


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
AnAltha woman was killed Tuesday when
the vehicle she was riding in overturned off
Hwy. 71, south of J.P. Peacock Road.
FHP Trooper Phil Spaziante identified the
fatality as Bonnie Keith, 50.
The driver of the 2002 Chevrolet Venture
minivan, Robert Eugene Keith, 51, also of
Altha, was taken to Bay Medical Center with
critical injuries.
Neither had worn their seatbelt. The single-
vehicle wreck happened just before noon.
The trooper said the southbound van went
onto the grass shoulder of the road and when
the driver tried to return to his lane, he over-
corrected, causing the van to skid across the
road onto the northbound shoulder where it
hit a pine tree. After impact, the van spun
around and overturned onto its roof.
Tommy Varnum of Bristol was traveling
through Altha when he saw the van, which he
said was traveling erratically. "They passed


me, going about 65 mph," he said. He slowed
down to let the van pull in front of him be-
cause another vehicle was approaching in the
oncoming lane.
He saw the van come up behind another
southbound car and thought the van was go-
ing to hit it before finally pulling out to go
around.
Varnum said the van's front right door
opened and he saw the passenger's head and
leg sticking out. The door then slammed
closed and "that's when they went to swerv-
ing real bad."
He said he "never saw a brake light" as the
van went across the road and crashed.
Moments before the wreck, Varnum said
he picked up his phone to call the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office and report the driver.
"They were extremely reckless," he said, not-
ing that before the crash he believed "they
were going to kill somebody."


Liberty County Sheriff's

Office initiates Child

Lost Program ID cards

from the Liberty County Sheriff's Office
Sheriff Donnie Conyers announces the ini-
tiation of a Child Lost Program to aid parents
who may find themselves with a missing child
situation. In doing this, we offer an important
community service that will aid in the recovery
of a lost or missing child.
Parents and families who have suffered a
lost child understand the panic and heartache
associated with such a loss. According to the
National Center for Missing and Exploited
Children, the first three hours after the loss are
the most critical in gathering information and
initiating a search.
The Child Lost Program enables the lost child
to participate in his/her own recovery. It consists
of a plastic ID card attached to a lanyard and is
worn around the child's neck. The card contains
a photo ID with parents' names and phone num-
bers. The back of the card contains the Liberty
County Sheriff's Office phone number.
The program is absolutely free to participants.
Initial enrollment will be limited to children
in the fifth grade or below. Parents will have
to bring their children to the Liberty County
Sheriff's Office in Bristol for photographing and
preparing the card.
Before that next trip to a theme park or the
beach, consider getting the card that could help
recover a lost or missing child.


The work of several locals artists is now on dis-
play at the Preble-Rish Gallery on Central Ave. in
Blounistown. The exhibit opened June 3. The gal-
lery will be open to the public from 10 a.m. until 2
p.m. on the first and third Saturday of each month.

Florida joins international


effort to end elder abuse


TALLAHASSEE - The Department of Elder
Affairs encourages Floridians to wear purple on
Wednesday, June 15, 2011, in recognition of World
Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Department staff will
be dressed in purple and urge others to join the
cause. Governor Rick Scott has declared June 15
as Elder Abuse Awareness Day in Florida, an oc-
casion to focus on building safer communities for
Florida's over 4.45 million seniors.
Wednesday marks the sixth annual celebration
of the international recognition. It is estimated that
every year 2.1 million older persons in America be-
come victims of elder abuse. Experts believe the
incidence of elder abuse is widely under-reported,
and that for each reported case of elder abuse, 14
additional cases go unreported.
In the last 12 months, Florida had 29,464 reports
of abuse, neglect, exploitation, and self-neglect -
an average of 81 incidents per day, seven days a
week (figures provided by the Department of Chil-
dren & Families' Adult Protective Services Pro-
gram Office). Nationwide, almost 90 percent of all
elder abuse occurs in a domestic setting, usually by
someone the victim knows.
"At a time when they should be able to enjoy
their later years, far too many of Florida elders are
victimized by abuse, neglect and exploitation," said
Elder Affairs Interim Secretary Charles T. Corley.
"The power to prevent elder abuse is in our hands,
and it is up to each of us to put an end to this shame-


ful practice."
Mrs. Allison Bryant, Statewide Elder Abuse Pre-
vention Coordinator will conduct a discussion and
screening of "An Age for Justice - Confronting El-
der Abuse in America" for the department staff on
June 14 from 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. The short documen-
tary film created by WITNESS and the National
Council on Aging focuses on bringing awareness
to this national epidemic.
The goal of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is
to raise awareness of the cultural, social, economic
and demographic factors that affect elder abuse and
neglect. Elder abuse, like other forms of violence, is
never an acceptable response to any problem or sit-
uation, and early intervention and education are the
keys to preventing elder abuse. In light of Mickey
Rooney's recent testimony we must empower our
seniors to feel comfortable about speaking out re-
garding what is happening on a daily basis and we
as a nation must be able to accept this reality and
be able to have open discussions as a community to
address this issue.
If you are a victim or suspect elder abuse,
please contact the Florida Abuse Hotline at
1-800-96-ABUSE (1-800-962-2873). If you would
like more information about elder abuse prevention
programs, contact the Department of Elder Affairs
at 850-414-2000 and ask to speak with your local
elder abuse prevention coordinator.


Three juveniles were arrested
for breaking into a pair of camper
trailers parked on hunting land
at Turkey Pen Pond off Flanders
Grade Road in Calhoun County.
Windows were shot out of both
trailers with a BB gun and both
were ransacked.
One of the owners arrived last
week to discover that his belongings
had been pulled out of his 29-foot
Sunliner camper. When he checked
his neighbor's camper, he found
that it had been left in disarray.


A Calhoun County man

after hours and help himself
to food has been charged with

parked at the business went

There are many ways to meet the needs of those around us


He hobbled into the office and told me his story.
He was raised in Blountstown and had moved to
New York where he worked in a variety of jobs.
He lost his family through divorce, and lost a foot
to diabetes. Desperate, he returned to extended
family in Blountstown. But after several weeks, B
they were unable to provide for him. I made three
or four calls but found no agency or "program"
that matched his needs. I took him to McDonald's
and gave him enough for a meal.
A few days later my wife saw a man walking on
S.R. 20 and felt impressed to offer a ride. He was 37
and jobless. He had no money for gas and was walk-
ing 10 miles to Blountstown to seek employment. He
had moved to Blountstown to help his disabled mother
whose husband had recently died. He had walked from
Clarksville to Panama City three times looking for
work to no avail.
We are surrounded by people with pressing needs.
Many are unemployed, without resources. People
for whom there are no easy solutions. They are here
and they are coming and the numbers are increasing.
How can we help? Our mind says, there should be
government assistance. But often there is not. Our
next thought, maybe the church should help. Again
we discover their resources are exhausted.
Allow me to suggest another alternative. What about
you? What radical thought. I understand that there are
many situations that are out of the range of your ability
but somewhere out there are human needs that you can
meet. You can be a pivotal person in someone's life. It
may be an elderly person who needs a friend, or a ride


GUEST COLUMN
by Roger King of Blountstown
Roger King has served as pastor at Gateway Baptist Church
3lountstown for the past three years. He grew up in Blountsto
graduated from Blountstown High School and later received
degree in psychology from the University of Florida. While h
has pastored several churches, he also works in construction


to the doctor's office or the grocery store. It may be an
unemployed person who needs your influence in the
job market. It may be a meal or a ride or car repairs.
There are endless possibilities. My parents were foster
parents. It may be someone who needs a place to stay
for a week or a month. My wife and I have shared our
home with many who needed help.
Our biggest objection is the safety factor. We have
all heard stories. But there are many safe ways to help
people. Quit making excuses, open your mind and
heart to the possibilities and you will see them. It may
be inconvenient at times, but there is joy in knowing
you have met a real need in someone's life.
Human needs are increasing around us and the
only way many will be met is person to person. We
cannot be all things to all people. But if we sincerely
endeavor to find someone within our ability to help,
they will appear. You have more than you think you
have to give. Money is not always the answer. Hospice
needs volunteers. That 10-year-old boy being raised by
a single mom needs a mentor. A child in your neigh-


- borhood needs someone to take him fishing or
to church, or both. Open you eyes. Get out of
your own world, open you eyes and you will
see. Become a pivotal person who makes a dif-
ference in someone's life. I know a 92-year-old
granny who regularly makes encouraging phone
a calls to discouraged people around her. Often
e the best things we can give is hope, a caring
n. heart and a listening ear.
After our Memorial Day family cookout, I
packed several hamburgers and called the phone
number of the man my wife found walking the day
before. The call to his mother revealed he had been
on foot since 6:30 a.m. looking for work. At 4 p.m. I
found him walking several miles from Blountstown.
On the ride to his house we talked of the job market
and his situation. I met his mother, listened to their
story and I began to consider ways to help. The man
who hobbled into my office was beyond my ability to
help but this situation was "my assignment". Every
need is not yours to meet. Be realistic about what you
can do, but do what you can. Your life will be enriched
by lending a helping hand. It is more blessed to give
than to receive.
I had an elderly neighbor who made a commitment to
do something kind for someone everyday. He couldn't
drive and I was often the delivery boy. I often think of
his attitude and spirit and I think how much better our
world would be if more people followed his example.
We don't have to go to Tuscaloosa or Joplin, MO.
Needs are on our doorstep. What are you doing to
help?


Excessive fees make it hard on newcomers to our state


To the editor,
As most of you are aware by now there is anew family
living among you here in the city of Bristol.
We moved here to Bristol for me to accept a job here
in town at a local business and to start a new life here
and to finally get a chance to do a job that was worthy of
my education and accomplishments. The state of South
Carolina was not providing me a decent income to support
my family as with everyone these days.
In the time that I have been here I have enjoyed meet-
ing all of you and getting to know you all. This is a great
community and a great town and I for one am glad to be
here. Your schools and sports teams look superb and you
have a lot going for you.
I however must protest about the way the power, water
and other companies treat new residents in addition to the
very way the State of Florida socks it to new residents

with excessive fees for title transfers, and various other
items that seem to almost appear out of no where.
The State of Florida is sending a message to new resi-
dents to stay clear. To add insult to it with all the moving
expense we incurred and everything else, we were recently
stopped by Liberty County for driving with a tag from


another state and for not having a car registered in this
state. I am a ex-Lieutenant with a security company from
South Carolina and have the highest respect for law en-
forcement and still have a house there which is worthless
because of the economy. But folks, how can you expect
any better when you just about bring folks to their knees
with all these fees?
I plan to stay here and somehow endure but the folks in
government need to take a good hard look at the message
you are sending to the folks who want to come here.
I hope you will encourage all your governments state
and local to work to change this before it's too late.
I look forward to being one of your neighbors for years
to come and for doing my part to make Bristol a better
community.

Smalltooth sawfish
topic of June 9 talk
at FSU Coastal Lab
The Florida State University Coastal
and Marine Lab (FSUCML) will host a
free, public lecture on the conservation
and recovery efforts underway to save the
smalltooth sawfish -- the United States'
first endangered marine fish on Thursday,
June 9 at 7 p.m.
Generally found in shallow water near
inshore bars, mangroves and seagrass beds
but occasionally in deeper coastal waters as
well, the smalltooth sawfish once thrived
from Texas to New York. However, the
population of the now critically endangered
fish has declined up to 95 percent over the
past 100 years as result offishing and habi-
tat alteration and degradation. Ever since
the National Marine Fisheries Service listed
the U.S. smalltooth sawfish population as
endangered it has been difficult to develop
recovery plans for the species due to the
lack of available biological and habitat
data. Consequently, other means are being
employed, and are proving useful.
The invited speaker is John Carlson, a
research biologist at the National Marine
Fisheries Service Laboratory in Panama
City. Carlson has authored and coauthored
more than 30 peer-reviewed publications
on shark biology and been invited to pres-
ent papers at international and national
workshops and symposia.
Light refreshments will be served fol-
lowing the lecture, which is a part of the
FSUCML's ongoing Conservation Lecture
Series. Attendees are asked to bring anon-
perishable food donation for the Second
Harvest of the Big Bend.
Visit the FSU Coastal and Marine Lab
web site at www.marinelab.fsu.edu/ to

facility. For further information on the June
9 lecture or future events in the monthly

Putting current events into a


more reasonable perspective


ABOARD USS YORK-
TOWN - There has been
much said and written of
late regarding "high-risk
decision-making" and Fo
"courageous leadership" in cha
Washington. The so-called
mainstream media, politi-
cians and pundits are all atwitter
- literally - about a congress-
man's underwear, the damage done
by WikiLeaks and how the death
of Osama bin Laden and the "Arab
Spring" are changing the course of
history.
For those having difficulty dis-
cerning what qualifies as "decisive-
ness under duress" or a "gutsy call,"
the first week of June offers some
excellent examples from living his-
tory that put current events into a
more reasonable perspective.
Much of that history is visible
here on the flight and hangar decks
and spaces aboard "The Fighting
Lady." This aircraft carrier, desig-
nated CV-10, was commissioned
barely 10 months after its namesake
was sunk by the Japanese shortly
after the epic Battle of Midway, 69
years ago this week. The docents
and tour guides here know how
bold, brave decisions and the un-
daunted courage of young Ameri-
cans in uniform can create world-
changing events. And they explain
all this without political coloration
or equivocation to visiting stu-
dents, tourists and Boy Scouts.
When I was a midshipman at An-
napolis, we were taught how the
battle for Midway - a tiny atoll
1,137 miles northwest of Hawaii
- became the turning point in the
Pacific and America's first victory
in World War II. But it wasn't un-
til decades later, while interview-
ing eyewitness participants of the
desperate fight (for our Fox News'
"War Stories" documentary), that I
completely understood how easily it
all could have turned out differently.


BY OLIVER NORTH
Oliver North is the host of "War Stories" on
ox News Channel, the founder and honorary
airman of Freedom Alliance, and the author of
"American Heroes in Special Operations."
,


From Dec. 7, 1941, until Midway
(June 4, 1942), the United States
failed to win a single engagement
with the Empire of Japan. Less than
a month before, during the Battle of
the Coral Sea, the U.S. Navy had
lost one of its five carriers, USS
Lexington, and Yorktown was bad-
ly damaged and required extensive
repairs in Pearl Harbor. Bill Surgi,
an aviation mechanic aboard York-
town, described the harrowing battle
and provided a dramatic account of
how his damaged ship was hastily
repaired and - with repairmen still
aboard - sent back into the fight at
Midway.
Fleet Adm. Chester Nimitz, on
the job for less than five months,
was down to two undamaged car-
riers in the Pacific, USS Enterprise
and USS Hornet.
But Nimitz knew, from top-secret
code breakers at "Station Hypo,"
that Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto, the
architect of the attack on Pearl
Harbor, was en route with the en-
tire Japanese battle fleet to capture
Midway. That's when Nimitz made
what Surgi called "the bravest call
a commander could make - to at-
tack them before they could hit us
again."
Having the participants in the
furious battle - men such as Surgi
aboard Yorktown; Ensign Lewis
Hopkins, a dive bomber pilot aboard
Enterprise; and Mac Showers, one
of the legendary code breakers -
describe the searing, bloody battle
is unforgettable. They all recog-
nize that a more timid commander
than Nimitz could well have de-
cided to husband his scant assets


until America's factories
and shipyards were able
to chum out more planes
and ships. But instead, he
took the risk.
The battle exacted a
terrible toll. Every plane


from the USS Hornet's
Torpedo Squadron 8 was shot
down. Only five planes from Torpe-
do Squadron 6, off the Enterprise,
made it back. And only two from
Torpedo Squadron 3, from York-
town, came home. The Marine avia-
tors ashore on Midway fared little
better. Maj. Lofton Henderson was
killed leading his squadron of 16
Dauntless dive bombers in an attack
on the Japanese carrier Hiryu. Only
a handful of his wingmen survived.
Then, late in the day, the Japanese
found the already battle-damaged
Yorktown. It was hit three more
times by Japanese bombs.
As darkness fell on June 4, Ya-
mamoto canceled his order to take
Midway and turned toward his
homeland with the entire Japanese
Combined Fleet. Taisuke Maruy-
ama, one of the Japanese pilots who
bombed Pearl Harbor and whose
carrier went to the bottom at Mid-
way, gave us a firsthand account of
the battle and what it all meant to
his nation's dreams of a globe-span-
ning empire.
Notably, neither President Frank-
lin Roosevelt nor Chester Nimitz,
the tall admiral from Fredericks-
burg, Texas, took credit for the vic-
tory. They gave it instead to those
who fought the battle. And unlike
what would happen today, a "leak"
about how our code breakers pro-
vided the decisive "edge" in the
Battle of Midway - first carried
in an article in the Chicago Tribune
and later carried in Time magazine
- did not get picked up in Tokyo.
Now we have WikiLeaks - and
small-minded officials who want all
the credit.


From bin Laden's compound we now know Al
Qaeda demanded that its agents keep complete
records and receipts for all expenses. No doubt
using Al Quicken. Also, Al Qaeda gave its agents
better benefits than Wal-Mart, although at Wal-
Mart you get to use your vests more than once.

MERRY-GO-ROUND

by Douglas Cohn an d Eleaanor Cl ft


The Huntsman cometh

WASHINGTON - Republicans are looking for a fresh
face and a true conservative to challenge President Obama
when they already have a likely contender in the current
field. Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman wowed the
media on his debut trip to New Hampshire, and if he gets
into the race, he could be the one moderate in the group
who retrieves conservatism from the grip of the far right.
Huntsman is considered a moderate because he supports
gay rights, and he worked for the Obama administration,
answering the president's call to serve as ambassador to
China. Huntsman, a Mormon, did his missionary work in
China and speaks Mandarin. He and his wife have an ad-
opted Chinese daughter, who accompanied them on their
recent visit to New Hampshire, sending a subtle but pow-
erful signal that this is a man whose family is behind him
should he run, and that it's not a hardship but an honor to
seek the presidency.
The upset loss of a traditionally safe Republican district
in upstate New York has the party worried that support for
the Medicare plan designed by House budget chairman
Paul Ryan could take the GOP off a cliff. All but four
House Republicans voted for the plan, as did all but five
Senate Republicans. Four of the five senators are moder-
ates - the two women from Maine, Olympia Snowe and
Susan Collins, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski who beat
back a Tea Party challenge, and Scott Brown of Massachu-
setts, who is walking a fine line between the two parties as
he seeks to strengthen his hold on Senator Ted Kennedy's
seat. The fifth, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, speaking for
his Tea Party constituency, said the Ryan plan doesn't go
far enough.
Huntsman has said that if he were in Congress, he would
have voted for the Ryan plan. But it doesn't seem to stick
to him the way it might another Republican because he's
so new to the national game, and as a former diplomat he
always sounds reasonable. He hasn't made the Ryan plan
his ideological litmus test, and he appears to trust the vot-
ers to respond in an equally reasonable way, treating it as a
conversation starter and not an end point in the debate over
how to curb the deficit.
It is hard but not impossible to see Huntsman's path to
victory in the GOP primaries. Social conservatives domi-
nate the Iowa caucuses, so his position on gay rights will
make him at most a footnote there. Iowa itself is dimin-
ished on the Republican side because of its history of elect-
ing far-right conservatives who can't go the distance. New
Hampshire, the "live free or die" state, is where Huntsman
could catch on with voters and overtake Mitt Romney, who
must make his mark as the former governor of neighboring
Massachusetts.
From there the race moves to South Carolina, a pivotal
state for Republicans. It's where George W. Bush beat John
McCain in 2000, and where McCain came back to win the
state in 2008 and secure the nomination. South Carolina
has a better record of electing the eventual nominee than
the storied Iowa or New Hampshire.
If you assume Romney is the frontrunner because he has
the most money, and he's run before, then the challenge for
the other credible candidates in the field is to present them-
selves as the conservative alternative to Romney. Former
Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, an evangelical Chris-
tian, has a legitimate claim to the role, but so far hasn't
been able to excite anybody about his candidacy.
If Huntsman can connect with voters the way he has
with the media, he could steer the GOP away from the Tea
Party and ensure the party's future as a center-right party.
Win or lose in November that would be an outcome a lot
of Americans would welcome.

ARTNIGHT AT THE LIBRARY
The Fiber Arts Weaving Textures Class at the Blountstown Public Library showed a lot of
creative talent as seen in the above photo in which Mary Burch, Helen Mitchell, Alice McCardle
and Lynn Attwood display their creations. The handwoven wall/window hangings were very
individual, using library yarns and interesting additions each person brought in and shared.
A really fun time was spent at Artnight as everyone broadened their horizons row by row!
New sessions are under way for Artnight with
Anna Layton at the Blountstown Public Library
featuring Watercolors Galore. These classes
are geared to the beginner and encourage
each student to discover the artist within.
The first class was an introduction to painting
and dealt with hand and eye coordination.
Everyone moved swiftly to create free and
flowing work. Pictured at left is a beaming
Mary Burch with her example of a farmhouse

Curriculum Marketplace

available to FL teachers
TALLAHASSEE -As part of the Florida Depart-
ment of Education's Strategic Plan to move to digital
instruction, the Department announced the opening ofthe
Florida Virtual Curriculum Marketplace (FVCM), anew
approach to help teachers navigate the crowded digital
curriculum landscape. The marketplace provides a single
point of entry for Florida teachers to search for content
that is educationally proven and aligned to Florida's
Next Generation Common Core State Standards.
A majority of Florida teachers use digital content
daily, but are challenged by the difficulty of finding
appropriate and easy-to-use content on the Internet.
Teachers not only have access to district and school-
licensed digital content from multiple sources, but also
to a wide variety of public and free sources of digital
content. For teachers to better use all of the available
digital content, they need an easy and intuitive way to
cut through the clutter.
"As Florida moves to the digital age in education,
it is vital that our educators have a vetted source that
can be trusted to provide quality instructional content,"
said Public Schools Chancellor Dr. Frances Haithcock.
"Florida's Virtual Curriculum Marketplace will become a
valuable resource to school districts and teachers as they
transition to the new Next Generation Common Core
State Standards. Districts and teachers will no longer
have to choose to purchase one textbook for instruc-
tion but will be able to purchase the most highly-rated
content to teach each standard."
The Curriculum Marketplace will allow users to
network and comment on available content, improve
shared lessons, share free materials, and provide the
most up-to-date materials daily. Teacher ease of use is
the guiding principle behind the FVCM. The market-
place supports single sign-on, so teachers and students
can use a single password and log in to access multiple
sources of content. The teacher interface is intuitive
and requires minimal training, and teachers see search
results in a consistent and easy-to-use format.
Every Florida educator has access at no cost to the
FVCM and its free, user-generated and district-licensed
resources. Teachers will also be able to find, buy and use
fee-based content quickly and easily with their students.
Informational training sessions will be offered
throughout the summer to give Florida teachers early
access to FVCM, and to enable them to start their
instructional planning before the new school year
starts.To learn more about the marketplace, and to see
a short informational video, visit www.leaming.com/

Liberty County student takes part in National Spelling Bee


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Ann Marie Brown may only be
13 years old, but she's already a
veteran of spelling bees.
She's won the Liberty County
Spelling Bee for the past three
years and progressed onto the Re-
gional Spelling Bee in Tallahas-
see.
Her win in the regionals this
year put in her in the national
spotlight when she joined 274 of
the country's best spellers in the
Scripts National Spelling Bee in
Washington, D.C. last week. She
made it into the Third Round be-
fore being disqualified, but was
O.K. with how things turned out.
"It was really fun. I got to see a
bunch of beautiful things and it
was a really good experience,"
she said.
The competition began with
a written 25-word test on Tues.,
May 31. Each word was worth
one point and count-
ed toward each
speller's prelimi- /
nary scores. She
missed four words
but notes, "that was
better than the av- \r
erage."
The list of words t 1
given to spellers
included remem-
brance, oracular, theatricality, qui-
etive, jiggety, infobahn, monodo-
mous, hukilau and acetarious,
along with a few others that would
send any computer's spellcheck
program into overtime.
The next day, she took part


in Round Two,
where she correct-
ly spelled "inoscu-
late."
In Round Three,
her word was "per-
nicious." Again,
she gave the cor-
rect spelling.
The points for
the written test and
verbal tests were
then tallied and ANNMARI
ANN MARl
the semifinalists
were determined.
Ann Marie discovered those four
missed spellings on the written
test left her without enough points
to continue and the competition
ended for her.
"I felt like I tried my hardest,"
she said afterwards. "I'd gotten
those two words right (in Round
Two and Three) and I was proud
of myself for that. I felt like it was
all O.K." She said she
knows there's a lot of
V luck involved because
"You never know what
t words you will get."
* Ann Marie went into
, / the competition with a
'+N study book, a support-
i. ive family and a Bible
verse from her grand-
mother, Philippians
4:13: "I can do all things through
Christ who strengthens me."
While in Washington, she and
her family - including her parents,
Doyle and Beth Brown, three of
her four siblings and her grand-
parents, Bob and Ruth Pickron,


toured the city and
enjoyed visiting
monuments and
landmarks, which
included Arlington
Cemetery, Robert
E. Lee's home and
JFK's gravesite.
A 14-year-old
student from Penn-
sylvania, Sukanya
Roy, took first place
BROWN in the 2011 compe-
tition. This was her
third time at the na-
tional spelling bee. She tied for
12th place in 2009 and took 20th
place in 2010.

Ann Marie, who will en-
ter eighth grade in the upcom-
ing school term at Tolar School,
didn't get to the national spelling
bee without a lot of family sup-
port. She studies with her parents
as well as her two brothers and
sisters. She also enjoys studying
online, says her mother.
Beth Brown, who is a second-
grade teacher at Tolar School,
says her daughter "is kind of in-
dependent" and enjoys using
computer programs like Hexco.
com and Spellit.com, which fea-
tures many of the words used in
the Scripps competitions. An im-
portant part of spelling is know-
ing the language of origin. "You
can't know every word, but if you
know the rules and go back to the
languages, that can be very help-
ful," Brown said.
Brown said Ann Marie learned


to read when she was around four
years old and credits her own
mother, Ruth Pickron, with her
daughter's early start. She said
Ann Marie's preschool teachers
were surprised to discover her
reading notes pinned to her older
brother's shirt at school.
Ann Marie said her Nana (Ruth
Pickron) taught her to read and
write. She and her little sister
used to call it "Nana School," she
said. Her grandmother often read
to the children and they watched
educational programs like Sesame
Street at her home. "When I was
younger I really didn't have to
study for spelling tests," accord-
ing to Ann Marie. "I'd look at the
list and know the words."
Her spelling skill is the result
of a combined effort, she said,
"Since my mother is a teacher. We
have fun and everything, studying
anytime anybody comes over."
A straight-A student, Ann Ma-
rie finds time for plenty of other
activities and is a cheerleader at
Tolar School, loves to play soc-
cer and is in the LCHS marching
band.
She hopes to one day become a
lawyer. She has already argued her
first case, going to bat for a friend
whose schoolwork she felt was
graded unfairly. After showing
how some of the answers should
have received at least a half point
of credit instead of being marked
wrong, the teacher took another
look. The result? The student got
an extra 10 points on the test.

Should I fertilize my
roses during the summer
or only in the spring?
-F. L., Milltown, N.J.
Fertilization require-
ments vary greatly, de-
pending on the type of
roses you are growing
and the kind of soil you
have. Most roses appre-
ciate a light midsummer
dressing of some balanced
chemical or liquid fertil-
izer, however. Your main
application should occur
early in the spring. Most
varieties require a 2-inch
application of well-rotted
manure or compost at that
time. Climbers, with canes
that can extend from 6 to 30
feet, can use considerably
more-up to 3 inches-
while the miniatures and
smaller types of teas roses
might do better with a
slow-release fertilizer in
the spring.
For midsummer treat-
ment, climbers, English
roses, and floribundatypes
all like a top dressing of
bonemeal. Keep it light.
Once flowering com-
mences, and perhaps once
again later in the summer,
you can apply a balanced

the Italian for "word." Its

"the h , ih,, dbg since sliced
bread" been around?
-R. P., Huntington Beach,
Calif
Well, sliced bread is
a fairly recent invention,
emerging in 1928, so we'd
assume that the catchy
phrase came pretty quickly
on its heels some 80 years
ago. That's factory-sliced
bread, of course; the hand
versions have been around
since bread was first baked.
Think of it this way: Life-
Savers (1912) had been
around for 16 years before
factory-sliced bread! It's
hard to imagine. Some of
us don't even own bread
knives anymore.
While we're at it, we'll
tell you our favorite bread
trick for helping out in
the kitchen. Say you're
cooking broccoli, brus-
sels sprouts, or cabbage,
and you've got company
coming for dinner; you
don't appreciate the smell
the vegetables leave in your
kitchen while you're cook-
ing. The solution? Bread,
of course. Throw a crust or
stale piece of bread into the
cooking waterto absorb the
odor, and then remove the
soggy bread with a slotted
spoon before you serve
the vegetable. It's the best
thing since sliced bread!

Encourage young fruit

Thin fruit trees by leav-
ing 1 fruit approximately
every 6 to 12 inches along
the branches or 1 fruit per
cluster. The higherthe leaf-
to-fruit ratio, the sweeter
the fruit. A standard apple
tree should have about 40
leaves for each fruit. Dwarf
apples, which usually pro-
duce a ration of 1 fruit to
about 25 leaves, will yield
better-quality fruit when
thinned.

said. "When I was young, I would sit under
a tree and read for hours, and to this day I
still love to read a good book outside in the
shade. Reading and literacy form a founda-
tion for life-long learning, education, and
employment, and I encourage everyone to
have some fun and read this summer."
Coupled with the Summer Reading List,
the DOE's Summer LiteracyAdventure en-
courages students to pledge to read a certain
number of books, visit a public library and
develop a personalized reading list using
the "Find a Book, Florida" search tool. The
annual reading list is part of DOE's Just
Read, Florida! mission and features recom-
mended books forages K-12. Children are
encouraged to pair these books with the
different places, spaces and environments
in the more than 700,000 acres of Florida's
160 State Parks that create
the perfectplace for reading.
The school with the greatest
percentage of students par-


ticipating in the Summer Literacy Adven-
ture program will win a one-day pass for
all students to any Florida State Park.
"Reading is vital for educational growth,
improvement and success, and should
continue after the school year ends," said
Florida Education Commissioner Dr. Eric
J. Smith. "By encouraging our students to
read through a fun program such as the
Summer Literacy Adventure, we can ensure
that we are highlighting the importance of
making reading a part of our daily lives."
One of the suggested summer reads for
2011 is Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Pulit-
zer prize-winning novel, The Yearling.
This story takes readers back in time to
Rawlings 1930s farm life. For those who
want to experience the inspiration for The
Yearling, DEP encourages families to visit

Park in Hawthorne.

winning state parks is a wonderful way

Fun By The
Numbers
Like puzzles?
Then you'll love
sudoku. This
mind-bending
puzzle will have
you hooked from
the moment you
square off, so
sharpen your
pencil and put
your sudoku
savvy to the test!


Here's How It Works:
Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine
3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each
row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row,
column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will
appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The
more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

SSTHRSCOPE
Week of June 13 ~ June 19


ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, a romantic match is made
this week and you are at the
center of the activity. Sometimes
it feels really good to be at the
center of others' good fortune.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21
Taurus, there are a million
reasons why you shouldn't do
something, but you have to
come up with the one reason
why you should. Look harder.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21
Gemini, an estrangement has
you feeling a little lonely. Bury
the hatchet and start reconnect-
ing with that special person you
miss. Pisces provides some
encouraging words.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, think about all the
things you have to get done,
and then push them aside.
This is a week to put your feet
up and simply enjoy the mo-
ments as they come.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23
Think about someone else
when you are asked for your
advice on a situation. Instead
of wondering what you would
do, consider what this other
person would do.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, a clash of personalities
leaves you with a little
pent-up anger. Simmering
over the situation won't help,
so it's better if you just leave
well enough alone.


LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, there's not much to
worry about this week so
you're free and clear to
have a good time. Make the
most of social situations with
friends or a special someone.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22
It's time to make a few
new friends, Scorpio. Joining
a club or group can get you
together with like-minded
individuals and provide the
opportunity to know others.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21
Sagittarius, some people are
masters at skirting the system,
but you are not one of them. Be-
fore taking the easy route, think
about the consequences.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20
Capricorn, you have been
pondering an important decision
for some time now. It's finally
time to take the plunge.
Don't worry: The results will
be well worth the effort.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18
Reminiscing about old
times can bring a smile to
your face, Aquarius. But unless
you are going to revisit the past,
it won't do much to dwell on
what might have been.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20
Take a few moments to
make a priority list, Pisces.
Because with so much time
on your hands, you'll have
opportunity to do things.

Well, I want to start off by
letting everyone know that my
girlfriend (now fiancee), Katie
Hughes, got her first turkey on
her quota hunt. We enjoyed a
great hunttogether on public land,
and I thank fellow outdoor writer
Jamie Adams for sending me the
slate call that helped bring two big
gobblers running in on that foggy
Saturday morning.
But enough reminiscing. Time
to get on with the business at hand.
Every hunter knows you have the
best chance of catching a monster
buck off-guard during the first part
of hunting season.
That's why many of us enjoy
hunting the archery and muzzle-
loading gun seasons - and why


your quota hunt permits during June


we can't miss opening
weekend of the general
gun season.
If you hunt public
land, you should know
that many of Florida's
wildlife management
areas (WMAs) require
a quota permit to hunt
during archery, muzzle-


loading gun and all or part of the
general gun season. A quota is
the maximum number of hunters
allowed on a particular WMA.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Quota Hunt Program
prevents overcrowding on such
areas and provides quality hunts.
Quotas also help control game


harvests. The FWC sets quotas
based on an area's size, habitat,
game populations and regulations.
There are several types of quota
permits, and most are issued by
random drawing. The first-phase
application period for archery,
muzzleloading gun, general gun,
youth, family, track vehicle, air-
boat and mobility-impaired quota
hunt permits runs June 1-30, so


FWC provides hurricane-season tips for boat owners


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is
preparing for Florida's
hurricane season and en-
courages Florida boaters
to do the same. Hurricane
season began June 1, and
the National Oceano-
graphic andAtmospheric
Administration (NOAA)
predicts a stronger than
usual hurricane season.
"In Florida, we are
very concerned about
the potential impacts on
our waterways follow-
ing a natural disaster,
both environmental and
related to navigation,"
said Phil Homing, FWC
Derelict Vessel Program
Administrator. "Now is
the time for vessel own-
ers to get prepared for
the worst."
NOAA forecasters


predict 12
to l8named
storms in
the Atlan-
tic basin,
including
three to
six major
hurricanes
(winds of
111 mph or higher).
Since boat owners
are responsible for their
vessels before and after a
storm, they should secure
their boats properly if a
storm is heading their
way. "Planning ahead
and preparing for storms
is the key to minimizing
damage, loss and legal li-
ability," said Capt. Rich-
ard Moore, ofthe FWC's
Boating and Waterways
Section.
Repairing vessel dam-
age and securing avessel


properly can
help prevent
furtherprob-
lems during
a storm.
"Improp-
erly secured
vessels can
be danger-
ous in severe
weather," Homing said.
The FWC encourages
boat owners to discuss
their options with local
marinas and city- and
county-operated moor-
ing fields.
Marine equipment
vendors can also provide
suggestions on proper
equipment that can with-
stand wind and waves
during a storm.
The FWC maintains a
statewide derelict vessel
database that is used by
FWC officers and other


law enforcementpartners
to document locations
and information about
derelict vessels through-
out the state.
"Part of ourmission is
to document the state's
pre-hurricane derelict
vessel condition," Hom-
ing said. "That way, state,
county and local law
enforcement agencies
can be reimbursed by
federal funding for post-
hurricane derelict vessel
damage and cleanup
costs."
The FWCisalsowork-
ing to implement a post-
disaster assessmentteam
that would go into areas
hit by a storm to quickly
document storm-related
vessel damage.
More hurricane safety
tips are available at My-
FWC.com/Boating.


OUTTA' THE

WOODS

Florida Fish and Wildlife

you've got all month to
get 'em in. No costs are in-
volved with quotapermits,
and during this period,
you may turn in only one
worksheet for each type
of quota hunt.
One thing to remember
though: Unless exempt,
you must have an up-to-
date management area permit
(or a license that includes one)
when applying for a quota permit,
or the system won't accept your
application.
Two of these quota hunts are
unique to the FWC's South Re-
gion. An airboat quota permit is
required for anyone wishing to
hunt out of an airboat on Ever-
glades and Francis S. Taylor
WMAin Broward and Miami-
Dade counties. But, if you'd
rather hunt off a track vehicle
there, or on Rotenberger or
Holey Land WMAs in Palm
Beach County, you'll need a
track vehicle quota permit.
The FWC offers youth deer
hunts on Camp BlandingWMA
in Clay County and Andrews
WMA in Levy County. If you
have children age 8-15, and you
wantthem to have the chance of
experiencing one ofthese great
hunts, apply for a youth quota
hunt permit. During these
hunts, only the youngsters may
hunt, and they and their adult
supervisors are the only ones
allowed on the area.
To increase hunting oppor-
tunities for youths, youngsters
(under 16) may accompany an
adult quota permit holder on
any WMA - even if the area
doesn't allow for exemptions.
However, in that case, adults
and youngsters must share a
single bag limit.


Boaters tips for preparing for summer lightning storms


ALEXANDRIA, VA - The
weather's power and rage showed
itself recently with the devastating
springtime tornados that roared
through the south.
For recreational boaters, sum-
mer thunderstorms bring danger
not only with wind and waves, but
also with lightning strikes.
BoatUS' Seaworthy Magazine
recently took a look at how to pro-
tect yourself from this hazard while
boating, sailing and fishing on the
open water and has these tips:
* Don't wait until it's too late:
Get off the water early: Getting
to safe harbor is the safest bet. If
you're in a powerboat and can't get
in, you may be able to get around
the storm.
* Inside is best: If you can't get
offthe water in time, the best place
to be on a boat is inside any cabin,
but avoid being near mast or chain-
plates (sailboats), or large metal
appliances like refrigerators.
* Keep away from metal: If
there is no "down below" and
you're stuck out on deck, stay
away from metal railings, wheels,
the mast and mast stays (both on
sailboats), or any other metal fit-


tings. A boater was killed in North
Carolina when lightning jumped
from his sailboat's backstay to his
head and then the metal steering
wheel he was holding.
* Don't be a lightning rod: If
you're on an open boat, stay low
and in the center. Depending on
the severity of your situation, it's
also good ideato removejewelry.
The US Coast Guard reports a case
a few years ago in which lightning
struck a man who was standing up
wearing a large medallion.
* Stay out of the water: Don't
fish during a thunderstorm - or
dangle toes overboard.
* Disconnect the power and
antenna leads to your electronics:
Many strikes just damage electron-
ics so disconnecting them goes a
long way in preventing equipment
damage.
* Lower antenna: Unless they
serve as part of a lightning protec-
tion system, lower any antennas.
* Stay silent: Don't use the VHF
unless absolutely necessary.
* Lightning grounding protec-
tion systems: Grounding systems,
which provide a path for the light-
ning to enter and safely exit the


boat, must be free of corrosion
if they are going to provide any
protection.
* Dissipater dilemma: As for
mast-top lightning dissipaters,
there is no agreement bythe experts
on how well or if they work at all.
It should be noted that BoatUS
insurance claims files show that
boats with "brush-like" dissipaters
mounted atthe top of the mast have
been struck by lightning.
* If you do get hit: 1) Check
people first; 2) then check the bilge
as strikes can rupture through-hull
fittings and punch holes in hulls;
3) check electronics and compass,
and if all is good up to this point,
4) you may want to consider a short
haul to checkthe bottom thoroughly
(trailerboats can be inspected when
you get back home). The challenge
with lightning strikes is that they
sometimes leave hard to find traces
of damage that may only be seen
when the boat is out of the water.

Lightning Strike " by David Keen
