questions. I don't think it's going to be a quick
and easy decision," said Interim City Manager
Traci Hall, explaining, "They will take their time

of molesting 6-year-old
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Liberty County jury returned
a verdict of not guilty Tuesday for .
a Hosford man charged with lewd .
and lascivious molestation of a
child under 12 years of age.
Ronnie Richter, 50, was arrested

six-year-old girl reported that her
daughter indicated that Richter
had touched her vaginal area and RONNIE RICHTER
According to the arrest report, Richter was at a
Hosford residence with three children, their mother and
their grandfather July 25, 2010. He was left alone with
the children for a few minutes when the grandfather
went outside to work on a vehicle and the mother left

Best arrested for holding gun on man at Bristol convenience store
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Bristol man who allegedly held
a gun on another man on two separate
occasions at a convenience store has
been arrested for aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon, according to
a report from the Liberty County
Arrested was Kenneth Adrian
Best, 35. He was also charged with
possession of methamphetamine and
paraphernalia after being taken into
custody June 16.
Deputies responded to the BP
Store in Bristol at 7:15 a.m. Thursday
where they met William Garner, 34,
who said that a few weeks earlier,
Best had pointed a deer rifle at him
while he was in the store. He said
when he saw Best's truck Thursday,
he pulled into the parking lot to
confront him about the incident.
Garner stated that Best was
standing beside his 2001 Dodge
pickup when he walked up and asked
why he had previously pulled a gun
According to Gamer, Best reached
into his truck to grab a double-
barreled shotgun and told him, "I'll
shoot you now. You don't know
Gamer said he stepped toward
Best, pointed his finger at him and
told him to do it. He said Best
pointed the gun at him with his finger
on the trigger.
Both men then told the other they
were calling the law. Best put the gun
back in his truck.
A witness at the store confirmed
Gamer's account of events.
As Best was being taken into
custody, he was searched. A folded
piece of tin foil found in his right front
pants pocket later tested positive for
methamphetamine. His rifle was
seized and found to be loaded with
two rounds of buck shot, according
to Sgt. Jamie Shiver.
He is being held on $20,000

Traffic stop leads to citation, then arrest for woman
A Calhoun County woman
who was initially cited for failure
to maintain a single lane was
later arrested for possession of
a Schedule II narcotic after an
altercation at her home on June
FHP Trooper Dallas Jones
stopped Crystal Wooten, 28,
around midmorning as she was
heading home after noticing she
was driving around 35 mph along
Hwy. 71 North and repeatedly
going off the edge of the road.
"She was going slow. It was kind
of odd," he said.
When he stopped her, he was
surprised to see the condition
she was in. "She'd been in some
rough altercation a few
days before," he said.
She had two black eyes,
her wrists were swollen
blue and her hands were
bandaged. She also had
other numerous bruises.
Wooten told him that
her wrists were broken and her
power steering had gone out.
After having her step out of the
car, the trooper determined that
she had not been drinking and,
other than her obvious injuries,
She had stopped across the
road from her home and as they
were speaking, family members
joined them outside. Wooten's

brother then drove her home and
they went inside.
The trooper parked nearby to
complete his report on the traffic
stop when he heard Wooten's
mother calling for help. When
he looked toward the house, he
could see Wooten and her brother
struggling on the floor. The
trooper later learned that she had
become upset when the family
said they wanted to take her to get
treatment for substance abuse.
Sheriff's Deputy Gary
McGee was called to
the scene. Wooten
became combative with
him and the trooper and
began acting erratically,
according to the arrest
Wooten told him she had
taken a prescription pill but
two other pills, later identified
as Lorazepam, a narcotic, were
found in her purse. She said she
had gotten the pills from a friend.
Wooten's brother said that
when he drove her car from the
road to the house, she tried to
jump out while it was still moving.
He said he
out "She's CRYSTAL WOOTEN
got a knife"
and her brother ran inside and
grabbed her by the wrists. They
were later separated by the
trooper. The brother later stated
that he did not see a knife.

DUI; almost hits patrol car
A Liberty County man driving home
late Thursday night was arrested after
he crossed the white line on SR 71
South and almost hit a marked patrol
car, according to a report from the
Calhoun County Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Anthony Norris was
monitoring traffic from a patrol car
in the parking lot of the former Booth
Chevrolet dealership when he saw a
northbound vehicle traveling recklessly KIM MERRITT
around 10:54 p.m. After nearly being LEWIS SR
hit, Norris pulled out to follow the
vehicle and followed it long enough to see it straddle the white
line for several feet before crossing back into the lane and
then going over the center line into the oncoming lane.
Norris watched as the vehicle nearly struck a guard rail
on the south side of the road as it came into the city limits
The deputy then signaled for the driver to pull over;
instead, the driver braked suddenly and stopped in the middle
of the road. Norris stepped out and had the driver, Kim Merrit
Lewis Sr., 56, of Bristol, pull into the parking lot of Keith's
When the deputy asked to see his license and registration,
Lewis handed him a citation showing he had been charged
with DUI in Gulf County four days earlier.
Lewis said he was driving poorly because he was trying
to reach his cigarettes. He also stated that he had three or
four beers a couple of hours earlier while visiting with his
son at the beach.
After performing poorly on roadside sobriety exercises,
Lewis was taken into custody. Breath sample testing to
determine his level of intoxication resulted in results of. 155

was charged with sale of cocaine and
possession of less than 20 grams of
marijuana after a controlled buy was
arranged by the Calhoun-Liberty Drug
Task Force on June 15.

According to the arrest report, a
confidential source working withthe task
force agreed to make a buy from man
knownas "Jamie." The informant called JAMIE JOE KOONCE
Koonce on his mobile phone and asked

The informant, who was outfitted with equipment allowing
investigators to monitor the transaction, drove to 11th Street
in Blountstown and waited until Koonce pulled up in a black
Chevrolet Trailblazer. The informant got in the vehicle with
Koonce, who then drove onto Lee Hill Road, where they
made the exchange.
After the transaction was completed and the informant got
out of the vehicle, deputies were sent to pull over Koonce's
Koonce and a female passenger were taken into custody.

grams of marijuana in the vehicle, along with what was
described as "numerous dime baggies with cocaine residue."
The marked money used in the buy had been hidden in the
headliner of the vehicle.
The SUV was seized and taken to the impound lot.

On August 30, 2011,
the citizens of Liberty
County will go to the
polls to vote on a �1 cent
sales tax increase for our
schools. This increase
was deemed absolutely
necessary by not only the
school administration and
elected officials but also unanimous-
ly by a budget advisory committee.
This committee consisted of ap-
proximately 15 residents of Liberty
County who have worked diligently
to find solutions that would have the
least amount of financial impact on
On May 26, Governor Rick Scott
signed the 2011/12 budget proposed
by lawmakers. This legislation
reduced the Liberty County School
Board's operating budget by 7.8%
or $864,731. Since the 2008-2009
school year, district revenues have
declined by $3.1 million while op-
erating expenses such as fuel and
energy costs have continued to rise
significantly. Sadly, Florida's coun-
ties are facing similar reductions
to result from the next legislative
Numerous options were discussed
in detail by the committee. Our
teachers are already facing ap-
proximately 4% pay reduction for
next year due to furlough days and
a state required contribution to the
Florida Retirement System. Staff
reductions have been made by the
Superintendent in administration
and other non-essential areas and at
least two of the school board mem-
bers have voluntarily taken a pay
reduction. However, this still left a
considerable short fall and the com-
mittee members with few options
to consider such as implementing a
four-day school week, increase in
millage rate by the School Board and
the 1/2 cent sales tax increase. The
sales tax increase was determined to
be the best choice because:
*It does not disrupt the learning
environment for students
*It does not affect only land own-
ers paying property taxes
WITH A LETTER TO THE EDIT

P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321
Citizen concerned over sidewalk projects
To the editor:
The Charlie Johns Street Sidewalk Project in Blount-
stown can be and should be re-designed immediately
before cement is poured!
At a recent Blountstown City Council meeting, with the
mayor's absence, Prebble-Rish Engineering Co. suddenly
advisedthatthis particular project (grant?) is separate from
the other sidewalk projects unveiled at a city meeting by
the former manager, it has to be completed by the end
of December. They advised it would cost $250,000 to
fill in the ditch alongside the street in order to separate
the sidewalk from the street. In other words, they want
to duplicate another dangerous street-widening as done
on Pear Street in back of the post office.
This is dangerous because vehicle mirrors and other
extensions can strike walkers on so-called sidewalks that
join streets (which are nothing more than extended street
widths). This one does not have a parking area separating
walkers from the street.
This is costly because land values and legal actions
are negatively affected by badly designed sidewalks,
such as the two new ones on Pear Street and the street
on the side of Alco.
I feel that meeting was a bad day for all. And appar-
ently it was for the acting mayor, who would not allow
citizens to respond to the surprise new Engineers Report,
and for the city attorney, who had to state several times:
"You need a motion" (Change Order). Change orders
are simple and used by contractors/engineers to make
corrections on original blueprints.
If gas gets higher we'll be walking more, so please
park at the Old Train Station or at the post office and
look at the new sickly Pear Street sidewalk. Be careful
if you take a walk on it. Either way, pray that we don't
get more like this!
Citizens and homeowners: no matter where you live
you should call your mayor. Tell him we taxpayers don't
need more costly legal actions. Once cement gets hard it
will be too late to pay for other professional opinions.
The city's telephone number is (850) 674-5488.

Joel Scilley works featured at the Jackson County Public Library
The spirit of the American entrepreneur
is alive and well in Northwest Florida! The
Jackson County Public Library has many ex-
amples of their work on display in the 2011
SummerArt in Public Places Exhibit hosted by
the library and The Artists Guild ofNorthwest
Library patrons will be fascinated when they
see the exhibit in the glass exhibit case in the
main lobby. They will discover that tucked
away in Grand Ridge is an extremely talented
and nationally recognized artist, Joel Scilley.
Scilley is a designer/woodworker/carpenter
who, with his wife, relocated to Jackson County
in recent years. His company, Audiowood,
specializes in unique audio gear and home
accessories that combine high technology and
the character of traditional woodcraft.
Audiowood designs are featured in doz-
ens of major national magazines and design
websites, and are carried by select retailers
like Anthropologie. Several examples of major magazine
articles and newspaper articles, including The New York
Times, featuring Joel Scilley's work are included in the
library display. Audiowood is also a retailer for several
innovative brands of audio equipment.
"It is a pleasure and an honor to have an innovative
artist such as Joel Scilley join us in our local exhibits,
Scilley studied art, design and architecture in New
York City and in Europe with Hobart College and Parsons
School of Design. He earned a PhD in media studies from
the University of Pittsburgh, and has performed various
forms of woodworking and highly unique carpentry for
more than 15 years.
Joel Scilley welcomes inquiries regarding custom
carpentry, woodworking and audio equipment. More
information can be found at www. audiowood.com and
on Audiowood's Facebook page.
Lynwood Tanner of Cottondale has two handsomely
painted works in the exhibit, "Amphora" and "Egret". "Mr.
Artist Joel Scilley is pictured at right. His work
is seen above in an exhibit case at the Jackson
County Public Library.
Tanner supported the library during spring the Plein Air
event and we are delighted to have his work in the main
room of the library this summer", said Brooten.
Visitors to the library can view more than 30 pieces of
art on display including acrylic paintings by Jesse Blanch-
ette, oil paintings by Karen Roland, Nancy Zurenda, Ed
Griggs and Berit Jackson. Michele Tabor Kimbrough has
a duet of lovely watercolor paintings entitled "Lotus I"
and "Lotus II". Bascom artist, Sam Camley's "Two Egg
in Monochrome" is a pen and ink drawing of the Jackson
County icon, The Two Egg Store..
Newto the exhibit is Lou Brown's framed paper quilling
assemblages. She creates delicate pictures with hundreds
of small strips of paper that are rolled, shaped and glued
together to create decorative designs. Quilling or paper
filigree is an art form that dates back to the Renaissance,
when French and Italian nuns and monks used quilling to
decorate book covers and religious items. Today, quilling
has many artistic applications including decorative items,
framed pictures and cards.
Other artists with work in the exhibit include photog-
raphers, Lois Jones and Pat Crisp and colored
pencil artist, Judy Brooten. Some art on display
in the exhibit belong to private collections and
are marked Not for Sale.
"Many people do not think that local and
regional artists are entrepreneurs but many of
them are managing small businesses and studios
throughout the region, and are nationally known."
said Judy Brooten, Exhibit Chairperson.
The Artists Guild's Art in Public Places Com-
mittee works with local businesses and organiza-
tions to host ongoing art exhibits such as the one
currently at the Jackson County Public Library
on Green Street.
"I am especially excited about this summer's
exhibit because we have wide variety of work on
display and much of it is for sale", said Brooten.
The summer exhibit features items priced from
$45 to well over $1,000, all beautifully painted,
photographed or handcrafted by artists in the
region. If an artist sells a work of art in the ex-
hibit, they donate 20% oftheir sale to benefit The Jackson
County Public Library creating a winning combination
for both artist and the Library.
In addition to working full time or running a business,
many artists donate their time and talent to numerous
projects and organizations throughout the area. One ex-
ample is The Artists Guild of Northwest Florida, Inc.'s
committee led by Lois Jones whose task it is to work with
the Jackson County Public Library to bring interesting and
diverse programs to Jackson County through collabora-
tion with the library.

A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS
BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.
Several congressmen have filed a lawsuit against
President Obama for getting us involved in Libya.
They claim Obama got the U.S. in a Middle East
war without authorization from Congress. To which
Dick Cheney and Bush said, "You can get sued for
that?" - JAY LENO
According to a new study, American fathers are
spending more than twice the amount of time with
their children than they used to in years past. Ex-
perts say it's due to a sweeping new trend called
"unemployment." - CONAN O'BRIEN
President Obama met with the president of
Mongolia. Of course, Sarah Palin had to chime in,
saying her favorite movie was "Steel Mongolians."
- JAY LENO
The New York Daily News is reporting that An-
thony Weiner's car isn't registered at the DMV. Oh
man - he must be so embarrassed right now.
- JIMMY FALLON
Officials still can't say what happened to $6.6 bil-
lion that was sent to Iraq for reconstruction. That's
money we could have wasted and mismanaged
right here at home. - JAY LENO
Rep. Michele Bachmann once said thatgay people
lead a very sad life. Apparently, she has never cele-
brated Halloween in San Francisco. -CONAN O'BRIEN
Rush Limbaugh has come out with his own brand
of iced tea, with a picture of him on horseback
dressed as Paul Revere. How confusing is this go-
ing to be for Sarah Palin? - JAY LENO
Did you see the Republican debate? Those guys
up there and Michele Bachmann, and it was excit-
ing, and you know who did well? Michele Bachmann.
Bachmann did well. Newt Gingrich was so impressed
with Michele Bachmann, he gave her a $200,000
gift certificate from Tiffany's. - DAVID LETTERMAN
A recent study found that today's fathers spend
twice as much time with their kids as fathers in
1960. Meanwhile, the study found that Arnold
Schwarzenegger spends time with twice as many
kids as he did three weeks ago. - JIMMY FALLON
According to a new report, only 12 percent of
American high school students can pass a basic
history test. That's the lowest percentage since our
country was founded in 1922. - JAY LENO
Bin Laden's deputy was made head of Al Qaeda.
I know because today he updated his status on
Linkedln. - JIMMY FALLON
The shame would be if Democrats get thrown
out of office without ever having tried Democratic
policies. - BILL MAHER
Photos of Congressman Weiner have surfaced
of him cross-dressing in college, in bra and panty-
hose, proving that even back then he knew he
wanted to be a Congressman. - JAY LENO
A Tea Party group has a summer camp for kids,
the only one where they sit around the campfire
and tell scary stories about taxing the top 2%.
- CONAN O'BRIEN
Anthony Weiner has asked that everyone respect
his privacy. I guess that wasn't his concern when he
was texting pictures of himself. - DAVID LETTERMAN
Happy birthday to Donald Trump, who turned 65,
allegedly. We still haven't seen the birth certificate
so we don't know for sure. - JIMMY KIMMEL

In the June 20 issue of Time maga-
zine, Rana Foroohar sets forth five eco-
nomic myths that are "law and gospel"
to many Americans and politicians of both political par-
ties. The following essay is based on Foroohar's article,
for which she gets full credit.
Myth No. 1. This is a temporary dip in economic out-
put and once recovery is evident, then full steam ahead.
Well, according to Foroohar, maybe not. The McKinsey
Global Institutes predicts that it will take five years for the
U.S. economy to "recover." Reason being is that the high
rate of unemployment reduces economic growth because
of reduced consumer demand.
This is not rocket science. We have a consumer-based
economy so unless we "consume" then there is no demand
for goods and services and businesses fail. Foroohar esti-
mates that we need to create 187,000 jobs per month and
grow at a rate of 3.3% to achieve the desired 5% unem-
ployment rate by 2020.
Myth No. 2. Can we buy or "stimulate" our way out
of our economic doldrums? The Obama stimulus did jolt
the economy in a positive way, but the stimulus was just
strong enough to get the economy sputtering along at a
rate of less than 3%. It's not possible to employ Keynesian
economic theory and stimulate the economy again with
Republicans in control of the House and dead set on cut-
ting the federal budget to the bone. Republicans kill off
any spending initiative such as unemployment payments.
One dollar of unemployment money spent generates about
$1.60 in economic activity, a fact lost on Republicans and
the Tea Party.
Myth No. 3. The private sector can do everything bet-
ter than the government. America's blind allegiance to the
markets is one of the country's economic weak points.
Justin Fox's book, The Myth of Rational Markets, is an
excellent dissertation of the fallacies and foibles of the
Foroohar states that American companies made $1.7
trillion in profits in the last quarter of 2010, but they didn't
share their largess with their workers. Foroohar cites No-
bel Laureate Michael Spence who states that in the period
of intense globalization from 1990 to 2008, U.S. compa-
nies doing business overseas contributed almost nothing
to create jobs in America.
It's a myth when Republicans say that American com-
panies won't create jobs because of the uncertainty of the
effects of economic and regulatory conditions. The reality
is that American companies create jobs
('S in the cheapest labor markets.
Myth No. 4. Foroohar's myth of mo-
SN ER ability. If there is a demand for jobs in
retired military Texas them people will move to Texas.

Myth No. 5. The myth that "Entrepreneurs are the foun-
dation of the economy." While entrepreneurship is one of
America's strengths. Forhoohar makes the point that busi-
ness creations has been declining since the 1980s.
There is a direct correlation between the decline in new
business efforts and the expansion of the financial sector.
Dramatic growth in the financial sector absorbed much of
the entrepreneurial talent that might have engaged in grass
roots business development.
In America's heyday of economic growth in the 1950s
there was a job for the high school graduate. Sons fol-
lowed fathers into the factory. People could make a good
living in the trades.
Today? Not so much. A large segment of America's
manufacturing capability moved offshore. Forhoohar
states that America should emulate Germany in its quest
for economic rebalancing.
In 2000, the Germans were facing a rebalancing of
their economy. German officials took the long-term view.
Company CEOs met with union officials and worked out
a plan. The German government offered firms temporary
subsidies to counter outsourcing of jobs. Forhoohar says
that German companies worked with educators to produce
a workforce with the skills needed for the German mar-
ketplace. Germany now has a high export rate and a low
What are we doing in America? America's "mean
streak" is showing itself. Republicans have demonized
union workers and are in a major campaign to bust unions.
Displaying their meanest of mean streaks, Republicans
state with a straight face that unemployment payments are
a bad thing because America's working men and women
are lazy and would rather live off unemployment than

Taking Bachmann seriously
WASHINGTON - The breakaway star in last week's
Republican debate in New Hampshire was without ques-
tion Minnesota Republican Rep. Michelle Bachmann, who
presented herself in such a pleasing light that she now
has to be taken seriously. The cable news networks have
had great fun with her and her tendency to say outrageous
things, but she demonstrated the other night that she is a
savvy politician, disciplined about staying on message,
and immensely appealing when she steers away from the
more hard-edged partisanship and talks about bringing to-
gether small-government, fiscal and social conservatives
under the banner of defeating President Obama.
Bachmann chairs the Tea Party caucus in the House of
Representatives, and more than any of the other candi-
dates, she wears the mantle of the Tea Party. She chose
the New Hampshire debate as the venue to announce she
had formally filed the papers to run for president, and she
is considered a favorite, perhaps the favorite, to win the
Iowa caucuses, the first test of next year's primary season.
It helps that she was born in Iowa, but more than that, her
family values and her positions on social issues, from guns
to abortion, make her the likely first choice of the social
conservatives who dominate the Iowa Republican elector-
She would likely then go head-to-head with Mitt Rom-
ney in New Hampshire, or possibly Jon Huntsman, the oth-
er moderate in the race, to set up a contest in a critical state
for Republican contenders, South Carolina, where Bach-
mann would be favored over the more establishment GOP
types. It's hard to imagine her winning Florida or any of
the big battleground states, but if she wins South Carolina,
she would carry the flag for the Tea Party and its legion
of disaffected voters who look at Romney as more of the
same, and Huntsman, who worked in the Obama adminis-
tration as ambassador to China, as not a true conservative.
It would create a split in the GOP that mirrors the 1912
election, when Teddy Roosevelt broke away from President
Taft to form the Bull Moose Party, handing the election to
Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Roosevelt was progressive
and Bachmann is conservative, but the dynamics are the
same - and Bachmann wouldn't have to formally break
away, which she is unlikely to do. She would just have to
make known her displeasure with the nominee, and the rest
Republicans made enormous gains in the 2010 elections,
taking back the House and winning six new Senate seats,
thanks to the energy and enthusiasm of the Tea Party. If
Bachmann falls short of the nomination but does well in
the primaries, the Tea Party will demand the vice presi-
dency. And if the nominee, let's say it's Romney, shuns
Bachmann, that could take a fatal toll on Tea Party partici-
pation in the fall.
Intensity matters, and if a portion of that Tea Party vote
stays home, the election could tilt to Obama. Bachmann
could choose another course and set aside any personal
feelings of disappointment she may experience, and put all
her energies toward electing a Republican. If she did that,
she would be rewarded in the traditional way that politi-
cians get ahead, and avoid getting labeled a spoiler. Her
choice of veteran GOP operative, Ed Rollins, as her cam-
paign manager, and pollster Ed Goeas, a respected main-
stream analyst, suggest pragmatism and a willingness to
engage in traditional politics that make her far more than a
She is no Sarah Palin, and that is a compliment. Some
of her misstatements about American history will haunt
her, such as crediting Concord, New Hampshire with fir-
ing the first shots in the Revolutionary War and claiming
the Founding Fathers ended slavery. A strong debate per-
formance doesn't change everything, but it's a promising
debut for Bachmann.

Chipola has lowest course withdrawal
MARIANNA-According to statewide - . .V---
data, Chipola College has the lowest course -- -
withdrawal rate among colleges in the State
The report, released in March, shows that
only 6.3% of Chipola's students withdrew "
from a set of monitored classes in the last
three years, compared to the state average -- "
According to the report, the analysis was
undertaken because when students fail to
complete a course, it costs the student and
the state money, reduces available class-
room space, and increases the length of time
required for the student to graduate. While
many withdrawals are necessary for personal
and academic reasons, excessive w ithd ral als
pose a significant burden on the student, the
college, and the state.
The data used for the analysis included all Chipola s
college preparatory and college credit courses Adams, s
offered from 2007-2008 to 2009-2010 in the
state of Florida. There were 3,157 courses
with 6,608,926 enrollments. The list of courses was then
limited to those with at least 3,000 course enrollments
system-wide. This reduced the number of courses to

Florida's State Board of Education selects Gerard
Robinson as Florida's Commissioner of Education
TAMPA- Following a day ofinterviews with five final-
ists, Florida's State Board of Education (SBE) unanimously
voted Tuesday to select Gerard Robinson as Florida's
next Education Commissioner. Currently serving as the
Commonwealth of Virginia's Secretary of Education
where he advises the Governor in the development and
implementation of education policy, Robinson joined a
pool of 26 other candidates vying for the Sunshine State's
top education position.
"As anticipated, Florida was able to attract a very quali-
fied, very impressive group of finalists for this extremely
important position," said State Board of Education Chair
Kathleen Shanahan. "Mr. Robinson was able to showcase
his passion for education and his desire to lift the achieve-
ment of all students in a very effective way, and I'm
extraordinarily pleased in the Board's decision to make
him our next Commissioner of Education."
Gerard Robinson is the former President of the Black
Alliance for Education Options and has also served as the
Program Director and Principal Investigator. He taught
fifth grade in Los Angeles, California, and was a gradu-
ate Instructor at the University of Virginia and Piedmont
Virginia Community College. He is a graduate of Howard
University and earned his Master's degree from Harvard

Crude oil settles at $93 a barrel, lowest settlement since Feb.
TAMPA- Oil prices fell below $95 a barrel last week
as the U.S. and international economic outlook was less
than optimistic. Crude oil settled Friday at $93.01 a bar-
rel on the New York Mercantile Exchange-$6.28 less
than last week.
The International Monetary Fund cut the U.S. eco-
nomic growth outlook to 2.5 percent this year, from the
projected 2.7 percent based on a slow economic recovery
and poor job market.
Consumer sentiment in the U.S. also fell to 71.8 in
June from 74.3, according to a Thomson Reuters report.
U.S. stockpiles of crude oil rose to the highest level in
almost 30 years in the month of May with a total of ap-
proximately 367 million barrels.
The European debt crisis continues to push oil prices
below $100 amid concern the global economic recovery
will remain at a reduced pace than initially expected and
lower global fuel demand.
"Oil prices are expected to drop further this week and
push retail gas prices even lower," said Jessica Brady,
spokesperson, AAA Auto Club South. "Retail gas prices
reflected minimal decreases for the past two weeks as oil
prices hovered around $100 a barrel.
Now that oil prices dropped below $95, consumers
can expect gas prices to fall another 5 to 10 cents this

up the Chipola Workforce Board Region, with some of
the counties having slight reductions in unemployment,
while others showed a slight increase. Liberty County

How much is "two

-G. D., Frankfurt, Ky.
Two bits is com-

were worth one-eighth

frogs and various wa-

The improper use of pesticides can

sources. So help pollinators by plant-

Earthworm friends in the garden
by Marilyn Pokorney
Research has shown that Ea
earthworm excrement, also
called castings or vermicom-
post, improves the aeration, guard,
porosity, structure, drainage
and moisture-holding capac- best
ity of soil.
Many studies prove that
when compared to conventional composts,
vermicompost is less variable and much
more stable. Mixing vermicompost into the
planting medium essentially eliminated the
need for additional fertilizer in the produc-
tion of tomato plugs as one example.
Studies show that earthworm castings in-
crease height, stem diameter, enhance root
growth, increase dry weight and produce
more flowers per plant than peat moss.
Redworm castings are the richest and
purest humus matter in the world. Humus
is believed to aid in the prevention of

for your garden:
* Choose plants that flower at dif-

nectar and pollen sources throughout
the growing season.
* Plant in clumps, rather than single

* Provide a variety of flower colors
and shapes to attract different pol-

How to use worm castings:
*When planting vegetable and annu-

two inches of castings. About every eight
weeks side dress the plants with one-half
cup of castings per plant or one cup per
foot of row.
*For perennials work one-half cup of
castings into the soil in the spring, middle
of summer, and early fall.
* For pots and hanging baskets add one-
half inch castings to the top and water in.
Then reapply every eight weeks.
*Roses appreciate four cups of castings
* If starting a new lawn add 15 pounds
of casting per 100 square feet when sow-
ing. Once established use seven pounds
per 100 square feet.

Products from flooded-out farms banned for sale to the public
What will be the effect of all the flood-
ingul 11 ,g i hc Mississippi River for organic
farmers, given all the pollutants in the
water? When they recover, can they still
certify their products as organic?
-- Michael O'Loughlin, Tigard, OR
The combination of record floods and
record numbers of organic farms has led
many to wonder about the safety of even our
organic groceries. Luckily for Americans,
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) has a policy in place to govern how
farmers respond to such situations and
how affected crops and fields are handled
to ensure that consumers continue to have
access to healthy and safe food.
For one, the FDA doesn't allow any
flooded out crops-organic or otherwise-
to be sold or consumed by people. The
agency considers "ready to eat crops.. .that
have been in contact with flood waters to
be adulterated due to potential exposure
to sewage, animal waste, heavy metals,
pathogenic microorganisms or other con-
taminants." Given that there is no known
method of"reconditioning" such crops that
would "provide a reasonable assurance
of safety for human food use," the FDA
instructs farmers to dispose of them "in a
manner that ensures they do not contami-
nate unaffected crops during harvesting,
storage or distribution." So-called "adul-
terated" food can be seized and violators
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration doesn't allow any flooded out crops - organic
or otherwise - to be sold or consumed by people, due to potential exposure to sewage,
animal waste, heavy metals, pathogenic microorganisms or other contaminants.

prosecuted under federal law.
Of course, many farms affectedby floods
have other fields that remain unaffected.
The FDA recommends a 30 foot buffer
between flooded areas and fields that can
still yield edible food. Also, farm equipment
shouldn't be driven through or exposed to
flooded areas (or their affected crops) to
minimize the risk of contamination. As to
when farmers, organic or conventional, can
replant fields inundated with floodwaters,
the FDA suggests waiting at least 60 days
to ensure contaminants aren't still in the
No discussion of organic farming and
flooding is complete without mention of
global warming. Italian researchers ana-
lyzed runoff data recorded in the Swiss
Alps to study how flood risk varies with
temperature, precipitation and elevation
in mountainous regions. They reported
in the January 2010 edition of the journal
Geophysical Research Letters that global
warming does increase flood risk signifi-
cantly, and that large floods have occurred
more frequently in recent years than in
Furthermore, they predict global warm-
ing will result in such floods occurring more
often in the future. If global temperatures
increase by 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, as many
scientists expect, so-called "hundred-year-
floods" could occur every 20 years or so,
putting untold numbers of people at risk.
Global warming is also responsible for
more frequent and more intense storms that
can cause widespread flooding.
The good news is that farming organi-
cally is one way to stave off global warm-
ing. Research at the Rodale Institute found
that "organic farming helps combat global
warming by capturing atmospheric carbon
dioxide and incorporating it into the soil,
whereas conventional farming exacerbates
the greenhouse effect by producing a net
release of carbon into the atmosphere."
And Cornell University researcher David
Pimentel found that organic farms use 63
percent of the energy used by same-size
conventional farms, which rely on large
amounts of nitrogen fertilizer produced
synthetically with large amounts of en-

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!

Week of July 3 ~ July 9
ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20
Social interaction will
put a smile on your face,
Aries. This week you will
find you spend a lot of time
with friends, simply
enjoying their company.
TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21
Taurus, if you question
too many things, you will
never get anything accom-
plished. Ambivalence leaves
you feeling paralyzed. It's
time to make a move.
GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21
Recent admissions by someone
close to you has you wondering
what the ulterior motive could
be, Gemini. Take things at face
value and don't be so suspi-
CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, planning a birthday
bash takes on new meaning
when you're ready to pull out all
the stops. If done right, it has the
makings of a party to remember.
LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23
Leo, regardless of what you be-
lieve, the world will keep turning
if you don't have ultimate control
of everything. Therefore, lighten
up and share the workload.
VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22
Financial concerns come to the
forefront, Virgo. Without some
assistance, your accounts could
dip much lower than you would
like. Take action immediately!
LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, focus on personal
issues that need to be resolved.
Once you tackle these things,
you will have more free time to
devote to guilty pleasures that
have been avoided.
SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, you and your
spouse or partner don't see
eye-to-eye on many things.
This can lead to misunderstand-
ings that need to be resolved.
Have a little patience.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21
Sagittarius, a relationship
that you thought might be
long-term has ended prema-
turely. Don't dwell on what
might have been; move on to
greener pastures this week.
CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20
Capricorn, matters of the heart
must be temporarily set aside
because you have other press-
ing requirements. Just don't
neglect family life for too long.
AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18
Aquarius, sometimes you
have to lighten up or people
may not want to spend time
with you. Now is the time to
let loose and enjoy yourself.
Try to make new friends.
PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20
Don't get too lost in your own
thoughts this week, Pisces. You

FWC refines gopher tortoise permitting process
The FloridaFish andWildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) approved revi-
sions to its gopher tortoise permitting
guidelines June 8 during its meeting in
The FWC approved a management
plan for gopher tortoises in September
2007, providing conservation measures
to ensure that gopher tortoises thrive in
Florida. The plan calls for permitting
guidelines that make certain that Florida
meets the tortoise's habitat needs now
and in the future. Initially approved
in 2008, the guidelines are revised as
the FWC learns more about the needs
of gopher tortoises and
receives input from the
The revisions approved
reflect input from meet-
ings with stakeholders
during the past year.
The revised guidelines
include reduced moni-
toring requirements for
landowners who receive relocated
tortoises and a modified conservation
permit to include an on-site relocation
option for public projects (e.g., roads,
public schools or governmental facili-
ties) that occur on or next
to public conservation
lands. Both revisions help
reduce landowner costs
incurred in relocating
"The Gopher Tortoise
Group and FWC staff
have worked together
since 2006 to build and refine the
FWC's landmark gopher tortoise
management plan," said Deborah Burr,
Gopher Tortoise Management Plan
coordinator. "Working closely with our
stakeholders, we are always improving
the permitting process so we have the
best possible plan to ensure a place for
gopher tortoises in Florida now and in

the box," said Commission Chairman
KathyBarco. "Continue to look for new
ways to make the permitting process

Bay scallop season to open early, close late this year
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) reminds people that the recreational
harvest season for bay scallops in Florida will begin
June 25 and extend through Sept. 25. The FWC, in
support of Gov. Rick Scott and Cabinet, added three
weeks to this year's season to help relieve Florida
fishing communities suffering from possible eco-
nomic hardships due to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon
Open scalloping areas on Florida's Gulf coast
extend from the west bank of the Mexico Beach
Canal in Bay County to the Pasco-Hernando county
line near Aripeka. It is illegal to possess bay scal-
lops while you're in or on state waters outside the
open harvest areas, or to land bay scallops outside
the open areas.
There is a daily limit of 2 gallons of whole bay
scallops in the shell or 1 pint of bay scallop meat
per person. In addition, no more than 10 gallons of
whole bay scallops in the shell or one-half gallon
of bay scallop meat may be possessed aboard any
vessel at any time. You are allowed to harvest bay
scallops only by hand or with a landing or dip net.
Bay scallops may not be harvested for commercial
Unless otherwise exempt, you will need a regular
Florida saltwater fishing license when you use a boat
to harvest scallops. If you wade from shore, you will
need a regular Florida saltwater fishing license or a
free resident shore-based license.
Divers and snorkelers are required to display a
"divers-down" flag (red with a white diagonal stripe)
while in the water. Boaters must stay at least 100
feet away from a divers-down flag in a river, inlet or
channel. In open waters, boaters must stay 300 feet
away from a divers-down flag.
During the season, scallop harvesters can assist
FWC's scallop researchers by completing an online
survey at www.svy.mk/bayscallops. Harvesters can
indicate where they harvest scallops, how many they
collect and how long it takes to harvest them. Partici-
pants can also email BayScallops@MyFWC.com to
ask questions or send additional information.
More information on bay scallops, including management
rules, dive-flag jgi.,i,.,oi, and b'ioiiig safety is available

FWC gives more protection to Florida's permit fishery
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) took
final action June 9 on
several rule amend-
ments to further en-
hance and protect
while also strengthening
management of the Florida
pompano and African pompano
The FWC extended the cur-
rent regulations in Florida waters
for these species into adjacent
federal waters. Federal waters
extend beyond nine nautical miles
from shore in the Gulf of Mexico
and three miles from shore in the
Atlantic Ocean. This will give
permit, Florida pompano and
African pompano more protection
and increase the enforceability
of our current rules. Previously,
there were no regulations regard-
ing the harvest of permit, Florida
pompano or African pompano in
these adjacent federal waters.
In addition, the new rules sepa-
rate the management strategies for
the three species and create two
new management areas for the
harvest of permit. In South Florida
and the Florida Keys, permit
is largely a trophy and
ery. In other areas of
Florida, anglers catch
permit from the shore
and more often keep
them as a food fish.
To better manage per-
mit for these different uses,
the FWC created a Special Permit
Zone, which includes all state and
federal waters south of a line run-
ning due east from Cape Florida
and south of a line running due west
from Cape Sable. The remainder
of the state (north of these lines)
makes up another management
In the Special Permit Zone,
the commercial harvest of permit
will be prohibited. In this zone
the recreational fishery has a
minimum size limit of 22 inches
fork length and a daily bag limit of
one permit per person and two per
vessel. Also, recreational anglers
are allowed to use only hook-and-
line gear, except that spearing for
permit is allowed in federal waters
in the zone. Additionally, a May,
June and July harvest closure ap-
plies in this area.
Outside this zone, recreational
slot size for permit of 11-22 inches
fork length and a daily bag limit
of two fish per person applies,
with an allowance for one permit
over 22 inches in length. A vessel
limit of two permit larger than 22
inches in length also applies. Also,
recreational anglers are allowed
to use only hook-and-line gear
for permit, except that spearing
for permit is allowed in federal
waters. No commercial harvest
for permit is allowed, however,
commercial fishers who are (
targeting other species with nets
outside of the Special Permit t
Zone are allowed an incidental r
bycatch trip limit of 250 fish.
In addition, the rules:
* extend current FWC Florida w
pompano recreational and com-
mercial gear regulations and V
commercial trip and size limits s
into federal waters; j
* maintain the Florida pom-
pano recreational minimum size e
limit of 11 inches fork length; f
* eliminate the 20-inch l
Florida pompano maximum
size limit for recreational har- l
vest; and u
* maintain the recreational t
daily bag limit of six Florida
pompano per person (no longer an
aggregate limit with permit).
Current FWCAfrican pompano
recreational size and bag limits
also were extended into federal
waters, and spearfishing for Afri-
can pompano is allowed in federal
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
approved a rule June 9 that makes
he recreational harvest season for
ed snapper in Gulf of Mexico state
waters consistent with the recently
announced season in Gulf federal
This year's open recreational har-
vest season for red snapper in Gulf
state waters will be June 1 through
Florida state waters in the Gulf
extend out to nine nautical miles
from shore; federal waters extend
beyond that line.
Gulf red snapper stocks are re-
building but are still considered to be
undergoing overfishing, which means
hat red snapper are being taken at a

ment goals for this fishery. Shorten-
ing the fishing season in Gulf state
waters this year will help to avoid a
harvest overrun and continue to re-
build red snapper populations so that
longer red snapper fishing seasons
will be possible in the future.
The Commission also gave the
FWC's executive director the ap-
proval to use his executive authority
to allow an additional harvest season
for red snapper in the Gulf at the
summer's end if NOAA Fisheries
Service implements a supplemental
