AUGUST 31, 2011 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorMore than 100 fans gathered in Bristol last week to hear former FSU Defensive Coordinator new Calhoun-Liberty Seminole Boosters Club. Hes phenomenal, said Robert Hill, commenting on how Andrews not only discussed the football program but stayed and talked with everyone and signed autographs. He said the former National Assistant Coach of the Year was quite a draw for the evening. Andrews talk ed about the teams future outlining plans for a new indoor practice facility boosters are helping to get for FSU and relived some great moments from his coaching career, including the 1994 Choke at Doak where the Seminoles tied with the Florida Gators after scoring 28 points in the last 10 minutes of the game. Former FSU quarterback Kelly Lowrey, who moved to Bristol four years ago, arranged for Andrews visit to kick off the Aug. 23 inaugural meeting at Veterans Memorial Civic Center. It was wonderful, said Lowrey. We had a really good turnout and several people signed up with the boosters club. Lowrey said hes already planning the next gathering, which hopes to be around the time of the Sept. 24 Clemson game. The booster or ganizations help with fundraising while enjoying social events with other fans. Wed like to do some community work as well as help raise money for the boosters, said Lowrey. Were going to try to do some scholarships for kids in Liberty County. Future plans for the club include some game-watching parties, as well as visits from current and former players. Lowrey is also hoping to get Coach Jimbo Fisher to make the trip to Bristol one day to visit with local boosters. He acknowledges that turnout from Calhoun County was low due to a previously scheduled pep rally that evening. They hope those FSU fans from across the river will be able to make the next meeting. A native of Lake City, Lowrey played quarter back for FSU in 1982 and 1983. Around that time, a friend of his brought him to Liberty County, kind of fell in love with the area, he said. After his kids left for college, Lowrey quit his job and moved to Bristol. He now oper ates a bail bonds business. Hes looking forward to getting the Calhoun-Liberty Seminole Booster Club off the ground and said he hopes a lot of young people will consider being tion. Sheriff Donnie Conyers donated the food for the chicken pileau that guests enjoyed at the meeting, which was prepared by Buddy Money and J.B. Alford. Ken Edwards provided signs around town and in the civic center for the event.

Our thoughts go out to everyone on the East Coast who were waiting for Hurricane Irene. In Washington, D.C., thousands of people have been left without power. Theyre called Democrats. CRAIG FERGUSONThe storm was huge news. In fact, The Weather Channel reported something they hadnt seen in years: viewers. JIMMY F ALLONPeople on the East Coast are cleaning up after the hurricane and on the West Coast, were cleaning up after the V ideo Music Awards. CRAIG FERGUSONHappy Birthday to John McCain, who turned 75 years old! A lot has changed since he was born. Back then a dollar was worth 20 cents. Today, its not worth nearly that much. JIMMY F ALLONPresident Obamas popularity was slipping when he was on vacation. When he went for a walk on the beach, the tide went out. DA VID LETTERMANGet this. In a recent interview, Dick Cheney said that his new memoir will have quote heads exploding in D.C. Yeah, especially if you read it while youre on a hunting trip with Dick Cheney. JIMMY F ALLONA guy last week put a fatwa out on me. CBS has been great. When they heard about it, they started holding auditions for my replacement. DAVID LETTERMANPrince Charles adoptpy ears and a big snout and I dont know what the puppy is like. CRAIG FERGUSONHurricane Irene wasnt that bad. In fact, it was downgraded to a tropical storm. Even our hurricanes are getting downgraded. Maybe Irene owed money to China too. JAY LENOHappy birthday to Sen. John McCain, who turned 75 today. He celebrated with he invited Sarah Palin. CRAIG FERGUSONPresident Obama was enjoying the fun and sun in Marthas V ineyard. Its really sad when your SPF factor is higher than your approval rating. DA VID LETTERMANVMA may stand for V ideo Music Awards, but I feel like it stands for V ulgarMouthed Adolescents. CRAIG FERGUSONThey felt the earthquake at Marthas V ineyard. It was so bad, President Obama nearly missed a putt. DA VID LETTERMANThe Balanced Budget Amendment ScamAmending the U.S. Constitution to require Congress to balance the federal budget every year sounds as good as eating apple pie or drinking a cold beer on a hot afternoon. What could possibly be wrong with balancing a budget since most Americans will say, I balance my budget so why cant those bums in Congress do the same? Whats wrong with this plan? Much.Republican politicians are out in force selling the balanced budget amendment as part of their cut, cap and balance plan to save the American economy. I applaud Republicans for their success in convincing the American public to embrace Republican plans no mat ter how detrimental they may be to the well-being of the population. Ive written many times that the common sense of the American people is a cornerstone of Americas greatness, but in the last couple of years of watching people embrace most every goofy idea that comes down the pike gives pause. Jeff Miller, representative from Floridas First District, has held town meetings in this part of the Panhandle. His message is that spending is the problem and there is no requirement for additional revenues. His answer to the budget problem isguess whata constitutional amendment to balance the budget. Resolution of the budget dilem ma lies in economic theory. No one likes to hear that, but amend ing the constitution to solve basic economic problems is dumb as dirt in my book. Heres why. The American economy is based on consumption which accounts for about 60% of all economic activity. A subset of the consumption process is a term called paradox of thrift. In recession times people save their money. Corporations stop spending, reduce their workforce and stash away the cash. Corporations are sitting on almost three trillion dollars of cash. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation reported that FDIC insured institutions earned $28.8 billion in the second quarter of 2011. When people and corporations stop spending then demand decreases and the economy shrinks, unemployment rises which is the current situation in America, ergo, the paradox of thrift. When a recession occurs and people stop spending, the only entity that can prime the economic pump is government. Obama tried to stimulate the economy, and the result was a minor uptick in economic activity. The stimulus should have been twice as much with 95% of the spending on infrastructure projects like rebuild ing bridges, roads, ports But, too late. There wont be any more stimulus because Republicans have convinced Americans that government stimulation of the economy is some deed from the devil.While spending should be cur tailed to essential requirements, the Republican plan to cut the American economy to the bone then cap spending and taxes and then codify this bizarre plan with a constitutional amendment that will be the most irresponsible act ever foisted on the American people by their government. Even Norman Ornstein of the right-wing think-tank American Enterprise Institute says that a constitutional amendment to balance the budget is a dumb idea.Do we as families balance our budgets? Yes and no. For most people balancing their budget means that they have enough income to pay the monthly bills. If a person pays his bills and owes no money to anyone, then that per son does balance his or her budget when all the monthly bills are paid. However, if a person has a or credit card debt, then even if they cover their monthly bills they havent balanced their budget. To do so requires that they pay off all debts monthly. Proponents of a constitutional amendment say that states balance their budgets. Why cant Washington do the same? The call for a constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget is not a new Republican idea. In 1997, Republicans were touting this idea. At that time, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities provided an in-depth analysis of the proposed constitutional amendment, and the Centers following comments are still valid today. balance their operating budgets, not their total budgets. States typically maintain separate budgets for operating expenses and capital expenses, and the requirement for budget balance often applies only to the operating budget. rainy day or reserve funds which they draw upon to balance their budgets. Budget surpluses can be used to balance the budget in a following year. governor submit a balanced budget or that the legislature enact a balanced budget not that yearend balance actually be achieved.

V. W., Manassas, Va. Combine four parts linseed oil, one part mustard flour, and enough lukewarm water to make a paste. (Use six parts linseed oil for a childs poultice.) Place a piece of muslin on your chest and cover it with the paste. Do not leave the poultice in place any longer than about 20 minutes. We hope that this will help to clear up your congestion. Otherwise, seeing your doctor might be the best medicine of all.My brother and I were raised in northern New England over sixty years ago, and to this day I recall his highest praise, which was, Thats not half bad. Was that just my brothers understated style or was he pure Yankee? R. S., Ft. Lauderdale, Ayuh, hes a Yankee, wed wager. The Greeks have a word for it, called litotes, which means plain and simple. Basi cally, its an understatement, used negatively, in this case to give praise. How did your date look when she went to the prom? Not too shabby. Did you get the job? Yes, and I wanted it something awful. The opposite would be hyperbole (from the Greek for overshooting or excess) for an extravagant overstatement. Thanks a million! The Greeks had all kinds of good words for interesting turns of phrases. The oxymoron, meaning pointedly foolish, refers to a combination of contradictory terms. Classic examples include: The silence was deafening. Cruel kindness. War games. Then theres the catachresis, Greek for misuse. The music was so sweet, I could taste it. If you cant hear the differ ence, you must be blind. Another favorite of ours is the prosopopoeia, from the Greek root words for face, person, and make. The prosopopoeia, besides being a killer to spell, is an imaginary person or one whos absent, but invoked as present. Yogi Berra gave a famous example of it when he said this about an old Yankee baseball manager: If Miller Huggins was alive today, hed be turning over in his grave. A similar one was invoked at the memorial service for E. B. White, a writer who was known for being extraordinarily wary of public events. The comment to the large assembled crowd was, If E. B. White could have been here today, he wouldnt have been here.What can you recommend for plantings to enhance the boggy area that separates our lawn from the surrounding woodland? H. K., Nelson, N.H. If the area is shaded by the woods, youll want to seek plants that are both shade-tolerant (or even shade-loving) and dont mind wet feet. Luckily, the list of possibilities is long and varied, so you can take your pick of a naturalized look or something more exotic. For larger plantings, think of any of the willows, including that harbinger of spring, the pussy willow; also witch hazel, swamp maples, and dogwoods. For wildflowers, think of the marsh marigold, hemp agrimony, sweet these standing in water), meadow buttercups, and the marsh woundwort. Notice any plant name that contains the word marsh or swamp and you cant go far wrong. And dont forget the dozens of varieties of ferns that offer great color all year long. Hostas are another wettolerant plant, with minimal soil requirements. These, too, are almost and you can mix solidleaf versions with the variegated-leaf ones for attractive groupings. In the shady, wooded areas, try lily-of-the-valley, sweet woodruff (it smells like newly mowed hay), foxgloves, or greater celandine. Yellow loosestrife, forget-me-nots, and Solomons seal like a shady area with con sistent -but not too wet -moisture, as do many violets, hearts ease, periwinkle (vinca), and the trilliums. Ladys mantle, columbine, and bugbane are other possibilities. AUG. 29, MONDAY St. John the Baptist. Moon on equator. Conjunction of Venus and the Moon.

According to the police report, Black drove off after the collision but was spotted a short time later on Hwy. 71 North. She was stopped by an FHP Trooper because the taillights were out on her Suzuki SUV.

Before returning to Blountstown, they stopped to pick up some groceries. Moments after Bowman walked in, the power goes out. Im standing in the middle of Winn Dixie in the pitch black, she said. The emergency lights came on and she began shopping. By the time she reached the checkout line, the power was just coming back on. Back at the restaurant, men from the construction crew pitched in to move some heavy equipment to clear out the front area. Bowmans secretary, Angela Waldron, arrived with her two daughters and they began setting up the rented tables, tablecloths and chairs. At that point, We began making an insane amount of food in a makeshift kitchen, Bowman said, to keep a couple of microwaves and the refrigerator on. The restaurants assistant manager, Pam Patrick of Wewahitchka, was joined by assistant chef Megan job after graduating from Chipola Colleges culinary program. Shes young, but boy has she proven herself, Bowman said. After a long days work, Megan walked outside to go home and change clothes for the nights event and home, change and return to work, not telling anyone what had happened until after the party. Bowman had a similar experience a short time later when she went to her car to run home for a quick shower and discovered her battery was dead. Pam tossed Bowman her own keys and said, Take my car. When she returned 25 minutes later, Bowman got the news that one of the beer kegs had a split room. The event was set to start at 7 p.m. By 7:20, the place was packed, she said. When the bartender hired for the event failed to show, Bowman took over and poured drinks. As the evening progressed, her husband realized only one of the six lights in the parking area was working. Our electrician Mike Ward, who was there for the party, joined my husband and they ran heavy duty extension cords and got more light outside where everyone could see where they were walking, she said. Meanwhile, Bowman, along with Pam and Megan, with the help of Waldron and her girls, kept the food coming. It seemed like everything was trying to stop us, but we came together and made it happen, she said, adding that the guests all came to have fun. They were so polite throughout the evening, people were dancing and it was just a joyous occasion, Bowman said. Since renovations began in late May, approximately 30 people have been working on the building. We have dealt with some major issues but this is too important to too many people to stop what were doing, says is eagerly looking forward to the future.The Lake House expects to add seven more employees to the restaurant staff and is accepting applications at the site from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.It seemed like everything was trying to stop us, but we came together and made it happen, Jonna Bowman said, adding that the guests all came to have fun.The Lake House Restaurant CONTINUED FROM PAGE 7 CITY TIRE CO.

AUGUST 31, 2011 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorMore than 100 fans gathered in Bristol last week to hear former FSU Defensive Coordinator new Calhoun-Liberty Seminole Boosters Club. Hes phenomenal, said Robert Hill, commenting on how Andrews not only discussed the football program but stayed and talked with everyone and signed autographs. He said the former National Assistant Coach of the Year was quite a draw for the evening. Andrews talked about the teams future outlining plans for a new indoor practice facility boosters are helping to get for FSU and relived some great moments from his coaching career, including the 1994 Choke at Doak where the Seminoles tied with the Florida Gators after scoring 28 points in the last 10 minutes of the game. Former FSU quarterback Kelly Lowrey, who moved to Bristol four years ago, arranged for Andrews visit to kick off the Aug. 23 inaugural meeting at Veterans Memorial Civic Center. It was wonderful, said Lowrey. We had a really good turnout and several people signed up with the boosters club. Lowrey said hes already planning the next gathering, which hopes to be around the time of the Sept. 24 Clemson game. The booster organizations help with fundraising while enjoying social events with other fans. Wed like to do some community work as well as help raise money for the boosters, said Lowrey. Were going to try to do some scholarships for kids in Liberty County. Future plans for the club include some game-watching parties, as well as visits from current and former players. Lowrey is also hoping to get Coach Jimbo Fisher to make the trip to Bristol one day to visit with local boosters. He acknowledges that turnout from Calhoun County was low due to a previously scheduled pep rally that evening. They hope those FSU fans from across the river will be able to make the next meeting. A native of Lake City, Lowrey played quarterback for FSU in 1982 and 1983. Around that time, a friend of his brought him to Liberty County, kind of fell in love with the area, he said. After his kids left for college, Lowrey quit his job and moved to Bristol. He now operates a bail bonds business. Hes looking forward to getting the Calhoun-Liberty Seminole Booster Club off the ground and said he hopes a lot of young people will consider being tion. Sheriff Donnie Conyers donated the food for the chicken pileau that guests enjoyed at the meeting, which was prepared by Buddy Money and J.B. Alford. Ken Edwards provided signs around town and in the civic center for the event.

CRAIGG FFERGGUSSONThey felt the earthquake at Marthas V V ineyard. It was so bad, P President Obama nearly missed a putt. DAV VID LETTERMANThe Balanced Budget Amendment ScamAmending the U.S. Constitution to require Congress to balance the federal budget every year sounds as good as eating apple pie or drinking a cold beer on a hot afternoon. What could possibly be wrong with balancing a budget since most Americans will say, I balance my budget so why cant those bums in Congress do the same? Whats wrong with this plan? Much.Republican politicians are out in force selling the balanced budget amendment as part of their cut, cap and balance plan to save the American economy. I applaud Republicans for their success in convincing the American public to embrace Republican plans no matter how detrimental they may be to the well-being of the population. Ive written many times that the common sense of the American people is a cornerstone of Americas greatness, but in the last couple of years of watching people embrace most every goofy idea that comes down the pike gives pause. Jeff Miller, representative from Floridas First District, has held town meetings in this part of the Panhandle. His message is that spending is the problem and there is no requirement for additional revenues. His answer to the budget problem isguess whata constitutional amendment to balance the budget. Resolution of the budget dilemma lies in economic theory. No one likes to hear that, but amending the constitution to solve basic economic problems is dumb as dirt in my book. Heres why. The American economy is based on consumption which accounts for about 60% of all economic activity. A subset of the consumption process is a term called paradox of thrift. In recession times people save their money. Corporations stop spending, reduce their workforce and stash away the cash. Corporations are sitting on almost three trillion dollars of cash. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation reported that FDIC insured institutions earned $28.8 billion in the second quarter of 2011. When people and corporations stop spending then demand decreases and the economy shrinks, unemployment rises which is the current situation in America, ergo, the paradox of thrift. When a recession occurs and people stop spending, the only entity that can prime the economic pump is government. Obama tried to stimulate the economy, and the result was a minor uptick in economic activity. The stimulus should have been twice as much with 95% of the spending on infrastructure projects like rebuilding bridges, roads, ports But, too late. There wont be any more stimulus because Republicans have convinced Americans that government stimulation of the economy is some deed from the devil.While spending should be curtailed to essential requirements, the Republican plan to cut the American economy to the bone then cap spending and taxes and then codify this bizarre plan with a constitutional amendment that will be the most irresponsible act ever foisted on the American people by their government. Even Norman Ornstein of the right-wing think-tank American Enterprise Institute says that a constitutional amendment to balance the budget is a dumb idea.Do we as families balance our budgets? Yes and no. For most people balancing their budget means that they have enough income to pay the monthly bills. If a person pays his bills and owes no money to anyone, then that person does balance his or her budget when all the monthly bills are paid. However, if a person has a or credit card debt, then even if they cover their monthly bills they havent balanced their budget. To do so requires that they pay off all debts monthly. Proponents of a constitutional amendment say that states balance their budgets. Why cant Washington do the same? The call for a constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget is not a new Republican idea. In 1997, Republicans were touting this idea. At that time, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities provided an in-depth analysis of the proposed constitutional amendment, and the Centers following comments are still valid today. balance their operating budgets, not their total budgets. States typically maintain separate budgets for operating expenses and capital expenses, and the requirement for budget balance often applies only to the operating budget. rainy day or reserve funds which they draw upon to balance their budgets. Budget surpluses can be used to balance the budget in a following year. governor submit a balanced budget or that the legislature enact a balanced budget not that yearend balance actually be achieved.

V. W., Manassas, Va. Combine four parts linseed oil, one part mustard flour, and enough lukewarm water to make a paste. (Use six parts linseed oil for a childs poultice.) Place a piece of muslin on your chest and cover it with the paste. Do not leave the poultice in place any longer than about 20 minutes. We hope that this will help to clear up your congestion. Otherwise, seeing your doctor might be the best medicine of all.My brother and I were raised in northern New England over sixty years ago, and to this day I recall his highest praise, which was, Thats not half bad. Was that just my brothers understated style or was he pure Yankee? R. S., Ft. Lauderdale, Ayuh, hes a Yankee, wed wager. The Greeks have a word for it, called litotes, which means plain and simple. Basi cally, its an understatement, used negatively, in this case to give praise. How did your date look when she went to the prom? Not too shabby. Did you get the job? Yes, and I wanted it something awful. The opposite would be hyperbole (from the Greek for overshooting or excess) for an extravagant overstatement. Thanks a million! The Greeks had all kinds of good words for interesting turns of phrases. The oxymoron, meaning pointedly foolish, refers to a combination of contradictory terms. Classic examples include: The silence was deafening. Cruel kindness. War games. Then theres the catachresis, Greek for misuse. The music was so sweet, I could taste it. If you cant hear the difference, you must be blind. Another favorite of ours is the prosopopoeia, from the Greek root words for face, person, and make. The prosopopoeia, besides being a killer to spell, is an imaginary person or one whos absent, but invoked as present. Yogi Berra gave a famous example of it when he said this about an old Yankee baseball manager: If Miller Huggins was alive today, hed be turning over in his grave. A similar one was invoked at the memorial service for E. B. White, a writer who was known for being extraordinarily wary of public events. The comment to the large assembled crowd was, If E. B. White could have been here today, he wouldnt have been here.What can you recommend for plantings to enhance the boggy area that separates our lawn from the surrounding woodland? H. K., Nelson, N.H. If the area is shaded by the woods, youll want to seek plants that are both shade-tolerant (or even shade-loving) and dont mind wet feet. Luckily, the list of possibilities is long and varied, so you can take your pick of a naturalized look or something more exotic. For larger plantings, think of any of the willows, including that harbinger of spring, the pussy willow; also witch hazel, swamp maples, and dogwoods. For wildflowers, think of the marsh marigold, hemp agrimony, sweet these standing in water), meadow buttercups, and the marsh woundwort. Notice any plant name that contains the word marsh or swamp and you cant go far wrong. And dont forget the dozens of varieties of ferns that offer great color all year long. Hostas are another wettolerant plant, with minimal soil requirements. These, too, are almost and you can mix solidleaf versions with the variegated-leaf ones for attractive groupings. In the shady, wooded areas, try lily-of-the-valley, sweet woodruff (it smells like newly mowed hay), foxgloves, or greater celandine. Yellow loosestrife, forget-me-nots, and Solomons seal like a shady area with con sistent -but not too wet -moisture, as do many violets, hearts ease, periwinkle (vinca), and the trilliums.

Before returning to Blountstown, they stopped to pick up some groceries. Moments after Bowman walked in, the power goes out. Im standing in the middle of Winn Dixie in the pitch black, she said. The emergency lights came on and she began shopping. By the time she reached the checkout line, the power was just coming back on. Back at the restaurant, men from the construction crew pitched in to move some heavy equipment to clear out the front area. Bowmans secretary, Angela Waldron, arrived with her two daughters and they began setting up the rented tables, tablecloths and chairs. At that point, We began making an insane amount of food in a makeshift kitchen, Bowman said, to keep a couple of microwaves and the refrigerator on. The restaurants assistant manager, Pam Patrick of Wewahitchka, was joined by assistant chef Megan job after graduating from Chipola Colleges culinary program. Shes young, but boy has she proven herself, Bowman said. After a long days work, Megan walked outside to go home and change clothes for the nights event and home, change and return to work, not telling anyone what had happened until after the party. Bowman had a similar experience a short time later when she went to her car to run home for a quick shower and discovered her battery was dead. Pam tossed Bowman her own keys and said, Take my car. When she returned 25 minutes later, Bowman got the news that one of the beer kegs had a split room. The event was set to start at 7 p.m. By 7:20, the place was packed, she said. When the bartender hired for the event failed to show, Bowman took over and poured drinks. As the evening progressed, her husband realized only one of the six lights in the parking area was working. Our electrician Mike Ward, who was there for the party, joined my husband and they ran heavy duty extension cords and got more light outside where everyone could see where they were walking, she said. Meanwhile, Bowman, along with Pam and Megan, with the help of Waldron and her girls, kept the food coming. It seemed like everything was trying to stop us, but we came together and made it happen, she said, adding that the guests all came to have fun. They were so polite throughout the evening, people were dancing and it was just a joyous occasion, Bowman said. Since renovations began in late May, approximately 30 people have been working on the building. We have dealt with some major issues but this is too important to too many people to stop what were doing, says is eagerly looking forward to the future.The Lake House expects to add seven more employees to the restaurant staff and is accepting applications at the site from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.It seemed like everything was trying to stop us, but we came together and made it happen, Jonna Bowman said, adding that the guests all came to have fun.The Lake House Restaurant CONTiINUED FROOM PAGE 7 CCITY TIRE CO.
