Its my understanding that the child is doing well and they expect a full recovery, said Major Steve Swier of But that playful afternoon on Aug. 2 nearly ended tragically for the youngster, who had come with relatives to a Power of Youth Rally church conference in Liberty County. I think he was under for about a minute, said Darrell Johnson, 30, whose son Luke noticed the little boy in the water while others around him were laughing and playing that afternoon. When I saw him, I thought, man, I should really get him out, said Luke. I pulled him out of the water and sat him on the ground. He was really pale and his lips were blue. The child was not breathing and did not have a pulse, Luke said his cousin started performing CPR on the little boy as the lifeguard, who had been watching over three small children who had just strayed into the deep end of the pool, rushed over to help. He came back alive and was breathing, Luke said about the rescue efforts. But the little boy was still in distress when the ambulance arrived, able to take only short, shallow breaths. EMS worked with him before taking him to a landing zone where he was picked up by an emergency Around 200 people from Florida, Georgia and Tennessee were at the camp for the youth conference. Luke was glad to help but said he had a hard time getting to sleep that night. I was wiggling around cos I couldnt stop dreaming about it, he said. When his father asked Luke how he knew what to do, he replied, Dad, I just done what I was supposed to do and God did the rest. Hes a pretty level-headed kid, his father said. He loves people and always wants to help people. He gave all the credit to God. Im just elated at his mindset. When asked what inspired him to take action that day, Luke replied, I try to be the best I can. I got two younger sisters and I need to look out for them. He downplayed his role in saving the little boys life and said, Even if I have still been there. Johnson, who is from Bristol, recently returned to the area with his family, which includes his wife, Rachel and daughters Lauren, eight, three-year-old Layla and Luke, Bristol boy, 10, rescues 4-yr-old found face down in pool at campby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorRight now, its just a collection of big new buildings. But for teachers who arrived Tuesday to begin unpacking textbooks and organizing instructional materials, its on its way to becoming the home of the Blountstown Tigers. That will happen when an expected 450 students report for classes Aug. 22 at the new Blountstown High School on Hwy. 69. The sprawling campus can accommodate around 760 students and there is plenty of room for expansion in the future. The infrastructure is already in place for another classroom wing. Principal Ronnie Hand, who A new home for the new school year An aerial view of the 77-acre campus of the newly-completed Blountstown High School. Teachers reported for work Tuesday and students will begin the school year Aug. 22.served as project manager for the $24.5-million facility, is understandably proud. I wish every kid in the county had access to a school like this, he said. I think its something that will help our kids academically as well as in how they feel about themselves. The 77-acre campus has nine buildings, including an administration building, gym, auditorium, cafeteria, media center, vocational/technical building, a central plant and two classroom buildings, with one devoted to science classes with labs that Hand says are on par with small college labs. Students will have access to an adjoining 15acre wetland site for their studies, about a mile from the Apalachicola River. We gave the state a conservation easement and in return, well be able to use that as an outdoor lab for our science classes, said Hand, adding, We have big plans for that. The buildings boast a total gross square footage of 128,000 and are linked by covered walkways to protect students during inclement weather.

The team also studies their budgets and hears testimonials from clients and/ or agency volunteers. Upon completion, they determine which agencies and how much will be funded for that particular year.

The solution to lifting America out of the recession is to increase government spending to rebuild Americas infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, air ports, railroads and ports. Doing so would create demand in the market and jobs. Heres the proverbial rock and hard place and why it wont happen. Republicans, right-wingers, Tea Partiers and about half of the American people, all whom believe or have been convinced that the only solution to Amer The federal budget cannot be balanced on just cuts in the budget without completely trashing the economy.

Also, its estimated that two-thirds of Chinas $3.2 trillion in foreign exchange reserves are in dollars. A weak dollar eats at Chinas $3.2 trillion nest egg. For China, thats not good. In addition to increasing government spending on infrastructure, do the following: Reduce federal spending by scrubbing down federal budgets. tax. End Bush tax cuts for everyone. End all wars. End Medicare Part D. Means test Medicare. Americas dilemma is that the government should be spending on infrastructure projects, but cant thanks to right-wingers and Tea Partiers in the House. CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Right-wingers and Tea Partiers have hijacked the government, a classic case of tyranny of the minority. Republicans are all about cutting government spending unless it is spending on defense. Andrew Leonard, writing in Salon.com, said that Tea Party Nation leader, Judson Phillips was pushing for the DoD to build a $9 billion aircraft carrier. Phillips says that projects like this create jobs and stimulates the economy. I wonder if the Tea Party knows that one of their leaders is promoting Keynesian economics. For once, Phillips is correct about something, in this case, how to promote economic activity. Too bad he cant convince his minions to follow suit. If my grandmother was alive, she would say that the people in favor of stopping government spending are cutting off their nose to spite their faces. Both sides in the debt ceiling debacle said that Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security wouldnt be touched in the governments quest to turn America into a thirdworld county.

CONAN OBRIENFox News will host the next Republican primary debate on Aug. 11 in Iowa.

Before the South Korean people vote, the United States should make it clear that if it withdraws its troops and North Korea later invades the South, we will send no troops to die again for South Korea but we will vote to condemn North Korea's aggression at the United Nations. rean people wants us to leave, we should. scite is that if a majority of the South Korean people wants American troops out, we have no moral obligation to stay there. And if a majority wants us to stay, the South Korean left and other ingrates in that country should shut up. admired their industriousness, work ethic and strong families. But South Korea is surely the most ungrateful country in the world. Which is all the more remarkable since it is also the luckiest.Dennis Prager hosts a nationally syndicated radio talk show and is a visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

While releasing balloons is often an idea of groups that wish to honor an event or lost loved one, the FWC encourages the public to choose more environmentally responsible actions for their events. Balloons released in Florida almost inevitably end up in the Gulf of Mexico or Atlantic Ocean. Wildlife, especially sea turtles, mistake balloons for food, and strings attached to balloons can entangle birds and other animals. The release into the atmosphere of large numbers of balloons and nuisance to the environment, particularly to wildlife and marine animals. Violators could incur logical balloons released by a government agency or under government contract, hot air balloons that are recovered after launching and balloons released indoors. The law also allows for the release of balloons that are biodegradable or photodegradable under FWC rules. Since 1989, the FWC has received only one such balloon design for review, and that balloon was not approved.

L., Fort Wayne, Ind. There are important differences, but they may not be the ones that you would guess. First, there are sunscreens for children, which generally contain fewer potentially irritating chemicals that can cause skin rashes. Some will label themselves as PABA-free. These childrens products can also be used by adults and should provide equiva lent sun protection with less risk of skin irritation for anyone with sensitive skin. Second, some lotions are labeled waterproof or sweatproof, but the FDA recently ruled that sunscreens need to be reapplied every two hours regardless of these claims. Third, regular use of sunscreens -almost any sunscreen -is much more important than the particular brand chosen. So, if theres just one brand that your youngsters will reliably apply and re-apply, thats the one that will do the most good. Lastly, make sure the sunscreen you choose protects against both UVA and UVB rays. One study indicates that up to 80% of the skin damage that occurs in childhood could be eliminated with the regular use of sunscreens before the age of 18. (Infants are best kept out of the sun, rather than smearing them with sunscreen.) F. M., Rockport, Mass. If your summers reading includes some lowly romances or mysteries of dubious quality then you may have pur chased potboilers. From the age-old expression for keeping the pot boiling, or providing a very basic meal of whatever edibles were left in the larder, potboilers keep us going when theres nothing else to be had. Even great writers sometimes penned potboilers to keep the wolf at bay and the muse was absent. Films and other forms of artwork, produced hastily to provide quick money to the artist, may also be labeled potboil ers. And, as with any good stew, sometimes the potboiler -regardless of its overall literary or artistic value -is just what we crave most.Why is it that Ve- G. S., Gilbert, Ariz. Called both a morning star and evening star, Venus appears more brilliant than most planets because the poisonous gas clouds that surround it happen (Unfortunately, those same clouds also prevent us from observing the rocky surface of this planet.) Because Venus never strays more than 47 degrees from the Sun, its time of setting is always within about 3 hours of our sunset and its time of rising within 3 hours of our sunrise. When the planet is sighted just before sunrise or after sunset, it appears as a very bright star in Earths sky and draws our attention.In its nearly circular orbit around the Sun, Venus passes Earth about every 584 days. Technically, it is an evening star for half of that time and a morning star the other half, but it is not always visible as such, since it is often too close to the Sun to be seen from Earth. Because of Earths tilt, the best appearances for Northern Hemisphere observers occur when Venus reaches greatest evening elongation in the spring and greatest morning elongation in the autumn.

The playful pup likes to take his toys outside. When playtime is over, he carries the toys back inside and puts them away in a basket by the door. He gets plenty of exercise running after rabbits that venture into his yard, although hes yet to catch one.

Neal Civic Center Saturday morning for the 14th Annual Family Affair in Blountstown. ons, pencils, scissors, erasers, glue sticks and other items students need for the new school year were handed out. While kids picked up their supplies, parents visited a series of booths to learn about assistance available to their families. Over 24 agencies set up tables inside the civic center to distribute information about their services. More than 16 adult volunteers and 10 local student volunteers, along with eight volunteer Med Students from FSU, helped to put together and hand out the bags. The games and activities were a big hit. Children enjoyed popcorn, snow cones, a giant slide, pony rides and wagon rides. They took tours and received valuable information from the SWAT trailer, roll-over simulator and the Calhoun County Sheriffs Department helicopter.

AUGUST 10, 2011 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 13 The kids and faculty are excited about the new school, said longtime BHS business/technology instructor Sharon Leonard McCrone, but she admits its going to be an adjustment for some. Its spread the new campus. Its going to be different. She has taught at BHS for over 25 years and while her previous classroom was in good condition, the older part of the school was not. She said teachers from the older areas of the former BHS campus will think they have moved to heaven when they get settled in at the new school. Shes excited about her new computer lab, which she said includes some really high-end machines for video production. Despite having updated technology and brand new facilities, she said one thing wont change. Were all starting fresh but were all still Blountstown Tigers. of their former school onto the modern new campus and noted, Were going to work hard to maintain a sense of who we are. Well keep the good things from our past and establish new traditions. of areas accented with the school colors of red and white. In a training room, the weight benches are cushioned with red. A pattern of large red diamonds Round tables in the lunchroom are a bold red. One row of tables feature the schools Tiger mascot. The bleachers in the gym have bright red seat cushions with an arrangement of black cushions that spell out Tigers when pushed back against the wall. We have an auditorium with a teaching stage, lighting and a sound system, said Hand. A kitchen classroom is equipped with a series of stoves to accommodate budding chefs in the school culinary arts program. We intend to make that program as good as it can be, he said. There are computer labs with approximately 22 computers each in both classroom buildings and a third computer lab is located in the media center. In addition to softball, baseball and football Were offering band this year, one period a day here and one period a day at the middle school, according to Hand. They will have a stage band but plan to build into a marching band in the future. Stuart Hobby was hired Thursday as part-time band director. Hand said the new school has 33 full and part-time instructors on staff. Teachers will no longer have to worry about turning off the lights when they leave because the entire campus uses a computerized energy-control system. When someone comes in a room, the lights will automatically come on. When a room is empty, the lights go out. All of the light switches are motion sensitive, Hand said. The system will also detect carbon dioxide in the air to determine when rooms are occupied, he explained. All systems are computerized and monitor the climate in each room, the principal said. We can remotely check the temperature in the buildings and see whats not running without physically going and looking at it. The cafeteria was built with a second purpose in mind. The buildings structural strength was increased so that it can serve the county as a hurricane shelter. Construction began 18 months ago with groundbreaking ceremonies in October 2009. The completion of the new Blountstown High School brings Ronnie Hand full circle. He was employed by Culpepper Construction, which built the new Blountstown High School, for about 25 years before leaving to work with the Calhoun County School District in 2000. He was principal at the previous Blountstown High School a few years back and later settled into the principals chair at Altha School for four years. He left that post to take on the duties of project manager for the new school. Ive built a lot of schools in my other career in been able to build over here. As a young man, his early career with the company helped him pay for college, he said. A quarter of a century later, its put him back in high school. And he says thats just where he wants to be as ninth, tenth, 11th and 12th graders get ready to make the new campus their alma mater. I just appreciate having the opportunity to work with young people. I think its the best job in the world, he said. A dedication ceremony for the new Blountstown High School will be held Aug. 18 at 10 a.m. The community can tour the campus during the morning and an open house for the students and parents will be held that evening from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. NEW BLOUNTSTOWN HIGH SCHOOL continued from the front page A tour of the new BlountstownHigh SchoolTOP: BHS Principal Ronnie Hand checks out the control panel on the school stage.

This creepy creature is known as the Eastern lubber grasshopper. While they are native to the Southeast, lubbers are appear ing in greater numbers this year than normal. Floridians typically have little trouble recognizing this insect. It is undoubtedly the best-known species of grasshopper in Florida, and one of the most readily recognized insects due to its size and unique coloration. Adult males and females are usually 2.5 and 3.0 inches long, respectively. The body is quite robust, and the legs relatively slender. The general color of adults is dull yellow with varying degrees of black spots and markings. In northern Florida, the lubber is mostly black but well marked with yellow. Like all grasshoppers, the lubber grasshopper does have wings, but as this species of grasshopper is inshort distances. Mostly the lubber grasshopper is quite clumsy and slow in movement. It can only travel by walking and crawling. In fact, its common name, lubber, means "a clumsy or lazy person." Lubbers, like all grasshoppers, grow through successive stages after molting. These stages are referred to instars before molting into the adult stage. The length of these instars varies slightly but averages seven to 10 days each. The highest numbers of adults are seen in July and August. Lubbers may invade residential areas and feast on ornamental plants. They have chewing mouthparts and feed on almost any green vegetation but they prefer lilies and other plants in the family Lilaceae. Members of this plant family synthesize chemicals to protect themselves from herbivores but these compounds are ineffective against lubbers. Instead, lubber grasshoppers save toxins from the lilies they ingest and use them in their own defense. We amaryllis and crinum lilies. Another favorite food is pokeweed, a common weed in our area. In most cases the homeowner can easily eradicate individual lubbers by hand. Lubbers are large, slow moving and essentially harmless to humans. The young remain clustered in groups, but the older grasshoppers are more likely to be solitary. Handpick them and throw them into a bucket of soapy water or crush them. Just be aware of their tobacco spit, which is partially digested food mixed with what can be irritating compounds, which can stain clothes. If this doesnt work, you can try insecticides. However, once they are large, Eastern lubbers are not easy to killeven with insecticides. If chemical control is necessary, several insecticides are registered for use on ornamentals to control grasshoppers. Contact your local Extension Service for further information on chemical control options.More lumbering Eastern lubber grasshoppers will march through the Panhandle landscape Horticulture The Jackson County Master Gardeners will be creating and installing a rain barrel at the Agricultural Complex on Pennsylvania Ave. Thursday, Aug. 25 from 6-8 p.m. Registration will open at 5:30 p.m. This program will be an informal, watch-and-see type of class.

On Tuesday, July 26, these kids learned about sharks, shells and sands from one end of the state of Florida to the other. colorful sand. They also participated in skill-athons that taught them the parts of a shark, how to identify different crabs and other sea life. They saw a sand collection of 25 different beaches from across Florida to teach them about the difference in texture and color. trip to the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab for some hands-on activities with real sea life. We toured the Marine Lab where we were able to hold and feed certain marine life. They toured the dock where they pulled up life depend on them to survive. Then we went to the marsh where our tour guide taught the youth how to seine for marine life and identify what they had caught. This was a very educational Page 18 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 10, 2011 4-H CAMPSArea high school students attend Big Bend AHEC Health Careers summer campMARIANNATwenty-three students from high schools in Jackson, Washington and Holmes Counties recently attended a week-long Health Careers Camp at Chipola College. The students were selected based on their interest in pursuing a health career, academic record, teacher evalu ations and personal essay. The camp included an eight-hour ACT prep course, dissection exercise, bloodtyping activity, medical terminology, tive thinking, simulation lab skills and information on health careers. Students toured Jackson Hospital, Marianna Health and Rehab, Chipola College, FSU College of Medicine and the Molar Express in Tallahas see. According to student Taylor Cintron, The highlight of the camp was spending a day shadowing a health professional. The experiences ranged from observing a baby being born in Labor and Delivery to scrubbing in and observing surgery in the Operating Room. The camp is co-sponsored by Big Bend Area Health Education Center based in Tallahassee and at Chipola College. Jackson Hospital also is a partner serving as a training site for medical students, physician assistant students, nurses and other health professionals. BBAHEC serves a 14-county area and has been conducting similar camps for over 20 years. Camp director Bridgett Nuccio, says, The goal of the camp is to help rural students interested in health careers to be admitted to professional schools such as medical, dental and nursing. The students also get to see that there is more to health care than just doctors and nurses. Students witness how various health professions work together as a team to care for the patient. The counselors give the campers a view of college life and the life of a health professions student. Some students may decide after attending camp that a health career is not for them. This is a valuable experience as well. The student can make informed decisions about their career goals. If you dont spend some time in health care settings, you have no way to know if a health career is really for you, says Nuccio. Big Bend AHEC has numer ous success stories from former campers. This year, Martin Clem mons, DO, a camper from 1997 returned to share his experiences. Dr. Clemmons recently graduated from medical school and begins his internal medicine residency in Largo, FL next month. He is the son of Drs. Tracy and Sarah Clem mons of Marianna. Nuccio was also a camper and came back from her training at University of Florida as a physician assistant and now works for Big Bend AHEC. The next summer Health Careers Camp is scheduled for June 2012.

Liberty County 4-H members have been having a blast at our day camps. We took nine youth on a trip to learn about insects in our world. Tuesday, July 19, Mrs. Cathia taught the youth about how important some insects are and how some insects are pests. She took the youth on a scavenger hunt where they found their own bugs to look at under a microscope and she showed them the metamor phosis stages of a meal worm. On Wednesday, July 20 we toured the was the traveling science exhibit of Giant and Marvellous Machines and on the third Lombardy from the Pinacoteca di Brera. This exhibition consists of priceless artworks, created from the 16th century to the end of the 18th century representing a fundamental period in Italian art history which has not been fully represented for many years in the American museums. It is exported such a consistent patrimony, with a value of more than 30 million dollars. Nine masterpieces within the collection were expressly restored to their original perfection for this exhibition. We are so glad that our youth had the chance to visit this display.

Box 536, Bristol 32321 Americans paying for the debt with their freedomTo the editor, Once again Coxs Corner, Our own leaders hold us hostage is little more than a malicious rant. George Washington was down-hearted and discouraged. He and his rag tag army of volunteers were camped at Valley Forge. They were starving, freezing, in need of clothing and ammo and hadnt won a battle. They wouldnt until later at Trenton, NJ. He had voices like Jerry Coxs saying Lets declare victory and petition for peace. We can call it the best we can do and try again next year or the one after. America is in decline. Economically, socially, morally and militarily. We cant afford business as usual. It took 100 years to get in this mess and we wont turn it around overnight, but turn it around we must. Take a hard look at that list of names, here are patriots on the front line standing in the gap for us. Thank God for these men of character and courage. Pray for them and encourage them not to compromise. From George Washington through Clinton we had acquired $7 trillion of debt. Eight years of George W. another $2 trillion. The first 30 months of Obama, $5 trillion of debt. Almost years, and he wants to borrow more. This is insanity. We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor, it must be demanded by the oppressed. Martin Luther King, Jr. John Crocker KinardTo the editor, Liberty County High School, WR Tolar K-8 School and Hosford Elementary School are students, hard work ing staff, and excellent teachers. These three schools combine to make a strong cor nerstone of our great county. Liberty County is known for its caring, determined people who have rallied many times to take care of each other. Another time has Our schools are the cornerstones of our countycome for us to rally to help our most impor tant residents our children. As most of you are aware by now, our school budget was drastically cut this year by the state, and it appears next year will also bring cuts. We are faced with the reality that we cannot rely on those outside Liberty County to do the right thing for us. Our school system has and will continue to look at many cost saving avenues to head off the shortfall. However, the clock is ticking, and we must take charge of the situation immediately. Some time ago our neighboring counties adopted a cent sales tax referendum to help support their schools. Now is the time for Liberty County to also take action. On Aug. 30 Liberty County voters will have the opportunity to vote on our own cent sales tax referendum. This is County School Districts efforts to reduce reliance on the state of Florida. Liberty County residents have shown time and again that we can do great things when we work together. Now our children need us to work together to assure that the future holds the quality education they deserve. Please go vote on Aug. 30, and vote yes for our students. Thank you.
