Page 2 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCT OBER 5, 2011 ARREST REPORTS compiled by Journal Editor Teresa EubanksWewa woman charged with DUI early SundayA 43-year-old Wewahitchka woman was arrested on a charge of DUI after a Liberty County deputy spotted her vehicle weaving across the road and veering into the oncoming lane several times early Sunday morning. Gidget M. Oakley was traveling east on SR 20 around 1:45 a.m. when Deputy Jonathan Gentry, who was coming up behind her, saw her go across the center line and then swerve back into her own lane. As he monitored her driving, she continued to edge out of her lane on both sides. Gentry saw her go into the westbound lane again, but this time, she was facing oncoming traffic. Oakley managed to swerve back onto her side of the road in time to avoid hitting a westbound vehicle. The deputy signaled for her to pull over near Odell Owens Road. In his report, Gentry noted that the driver smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage. He noticed a beer of the backseat and later found an open can of beer in a cup holder by the drivers seat. When asked if she had been drinking, she told him, I had one about 30 minutes ago. She later said she had consumed two or three. sobriety test but was unable to complete the exercises, swaying, stumbling and losing her balance as she attempted to follow the deputys directions to walk, turn around and follow the motion of his pen with her eyes. She was handcuffed and taken to the Liberty County Jail. When asked to submit to a breath test to determine her level of intoxication, she said, No. I know Im going to blow over (the legal limit), so whats the point? She was later released on $1,500 bond.Man with prior convictions charged in batteryA 51-year-old Calhoun County man with prior convictions for battery was arrested last week on a charge of felony domestic battery after a family member reported that he struck his wife. Melvin Kenneth Dawson denied the allegation. He told a deputy that he did nothing more than wake up his wife and ask her for some money on Sept. 28. Two family members offered a different account of the incident, with one stating that Dawson snatched his wife off the couch and hit her in the head. Another family member said the that she did not see Dawson throw a punch. The victim said Dawson grabbed her off the couch and struck her above the left ear. Calhoun County Deputy John Scheetz noted that the womans shirt was torn and the left side of her face was red, which was photographed to document the report. Dawsons bond was set at $3,000 for the battery charge. He is being held without bond for violating his probation.Man charged with creating disturbanceA disturbance at a Bristol convenience store resulted in one arrest after deputies were dispatched to the scene last week. Deputies were called out to the BP station around 9:15 p.m. on Sept. 28 after getting a report that a white male, who had left his vehicle at the edge of the stores parking lot near CR 12 South, was yelling, cursing and kicking the recycling bins outside the business. When deputies arrived, David Carson, 35, started walking toward them as he continued cursing and demanded to know, What the **** are you here for? After deputies said they had received a call about a disturbance, Carson asked angrily, Who the **** called yall? I wanna know who called yall! He then accused the deputies of harassing him. In his report, Deputy Chad Smith noted that Carson smelled strongly of alcohol. He repeatedly asked Carson to calm down and lower his voice, which he would only do momentarily before he resumed yelling. After giving David numerous opportunities to cease his behavior and leave peacefully, he continued being disorderly by hollering and cussing, Smith wrote in his report. Carson was handcuffed, put in the back seat of a patrol car and driven two blocks to the Liberty County Jail. He continued yelling and cursing after being placed in a holding cell. He was charged with disorderly intoxication. Due to a probation violation, he is being held without bond.LEWIS DAVID CARSON A Calhoun County couple was charged with possession of methamphetamine after the Calhoun-Liberty Drug Task Force served a search warrant on their home last week. The couple Thomas Charles Dawsey, 42, and his wife, Cristy Love Dawsey, 32, were both at the 20180 Central Avenue residence in Blountstown when investigators arrived Sept. 27. The wife was found in the backyard. She claimed ownership of two plastic containers with methamphetamine found in her purse. The husband was inside the residence. Investigators found a plastic toothpick bottle that contained methamphetamine located in his right front pants pocket. He stated that the methamphetamine was his. Both were later given conditional releases from jail. Investigators began watching the residence after getting a tip that both marijuana and methamphetamine were being sold at the home, where they were also alerted that there was a lot the day and night. While the home was under surveillance, investigators took a look inside a trash can that had been pushed out for pickup. While pulling out two trash bags, Blountstown Police Patrick Crawford noticed the strong odor of raw marijuana. They found a pint-sized sandwich bag containing marijuana and returned later with a search warrant. Other members of the Task Force working this case included Lt. Mark Mallory, Sgt.

OCT OBER 5, 2011 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 To the editor,After reading the letter from Florida Public Utilities (FPU) President Jeff Householder, informing their customers of a second rate decrease this year, I was disappointed in discovering that Bristol intention of purchasing the electric infrastructures within the city limits. I do not know the costs of these electric facilities, but have heard it will cost several million dollars to purchase and thousands more in legal fees. Undoubtedly, the city taxpayers will foot these costs through electric rates and additional taxes. Of course it is all being done by the city council and their attorney without input from us taxpayers. I am very hesitant in allowing a critical function like electric service to be take over by the city with no experience in maintaining and operating such a system. FPU is an established company with the resources and experience to continue to provide us with safe reliable electric service. FPU has served our community for as long as I can remember and provides us with lineman stationed here in Bristol dedicated to serve our needs. In these tight economic times, I do not believe a takeover of FPU is the best use of public funds and the citys time. It is time for the citizens of Bristol to let the council know that we do not want our money spent on this effort. As a retired Clerk of City of Bristol for 37 years lets not make a change lets keep what we have no problem! Betty A. Ramsey SPEAK UP! WITH A LETTER TO THE EDITORWrite: The Calhoun-Liberty Journal, P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321 or email thejournal@fairpoint.net Former clerk objects to City of Bristol taking over utilitiesTouched by a recent incident in Liberty County, Sheriff Donnie Conyers is concerned about the fact that there are people who live by themselves with no one to check on them. This is especially true of senior citizens and some others who have physical problems that interfere with their daily lives. As County Sheriff, Conyers says he wants to do something to alleviate this situation. He particularly wants to focus on: to check on them. family or friends to check on them. People in the above categories can call dispatch at 643-2235 and request to be put on a call list. At the time you call into dispatch to get on the call list, advise them of the best time to call you. This is intended to be a service to our citizens. According to Sheriff Conyers, No person should be so alone that no one will check on their well being.Liberty County senior citizens urged to add their names to sheriffs contact listA 73-year-old Bristol man received stitches for a cut over his eye after a collision Saturday afternoon on SR 20, about two miles east of Clarksville. According to FHP Trooper Denise Grimes, Mack Carder was parked on the shoulder of the road before he began easing his 1995 Chevrolet S-10 pickup back onto SR 20 around 2:55 p.m. Several vehicles coming up behind him went around the truck, includ ing a 2003 Honda Accord, driven by William Price, 28, of Blountstown. As Price was about to pass him, Carder began to make a left turn and hit the Honda. Carder was cited for making a left turn while being passed. Price was not injured. His car was totaled.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCT OBER 5, 2011 COMMENTARYAmericas threat from withinAmerica is in trouble, and to paraphrase Pogo the comic strip charac ter, We have met the enemy and he is us. The quote was a parody of a message sent in 1813 from U.S. Navy Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry to Army General William Henry Har rison after the Battle of Lake Erie, stating, We have met the enemy, and they are ours. A cursory view of Americas dysfunctional system of governance indicates that Pogos and Commodore Perrys comments ring true today. The Constitutional system of government devised by the Founders in Philadelphia in September 1787 is a representative democracy, a form of government founded on the principle of elected individuals representing the people, as opposed to autocracy and direct democracy. Direct democracy is a form of government in which people collectively make decisions for themselves, rather than having their political affairs decided by representatives. Direct democracy is classically termed pure democracy. Direct democracy stands in contrast to a representative democracy in which the decisive authority is vested in a subset of people, usually based on elections. state. The federal government is unable to cope with very complicated and critical issues of governance. The result of our political and governmental incompetence is a serious deterioration of Americas internal strengths The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that outgoing Secretary of Defense Robert Gates made some scathing observations about the state of our democracy when he was recently awarded the 2011 Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. According to the Inquirer, Gates blamed three factors for our politicians current inability to make the compromises needed to get anything done. One, highly partisan redistricting, which pushes politicians to extreme positions that cater to the bases of their parties. Two, lopsided wave elections, which embolden the winners to impose their agenda on the other side by brute force, and three, changes in the composition of the news media that have fueled the coarsening and dumbing-down of the national political dialogue. You could add other frequently noted failings of our system to the list, such as the role of big money in politics, powerful special-interest lobbies, and Senate rules cant piece of legislation. The international community is watching America CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS implode. Charlie Rose recently inter viewed a representative of the Chinese government who made the point that unlike America, China takes the long view on issues of governance. Charlie Rose asked the Chinese fellow if China was worried more about the amount of money that the U.S. owes China, or the American governments inability to deal with serious national and international issues. The Chinese man said that his government worries about Americas inability to govern. My experience on a NATO staff was that when any country, friend or foe, particularly America, began act ing irrationally other nations became apprehensive. Nation states, like individuals, dont like loose cannons on deck. In the international community, America is now viewed by some nations as a loose cannon on deck because of the irrational behavior of the government in Washington, particularly the Congress and even more so the Republican controlled House of Representatives. The actions and comments of the Tea Partiers elected to the House are bizarre. Trashing the government of which they are now a part of makes no sense to me. I would like to think that they were sent there to govern, not burn the place down. An Associated Press analysis of Congress dysfunction contained the following comment. At the core of this gridlock is a steadily growing partisanship. Couple that with a rising distaste for compromise by avid voters. Unswerving conservatives and liberals dominate the two parties nomination processes, electing law makers who pledge never to stray from their ideologies. ate Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate that compromised on issues in the best interest of America, not political parties. Those days are gone forever. There are no liberal Republicans anymore, and the existence of the few remaining moderate Republicans is threatened by Tea Par tiers who have elected and intend to continue electing the most radical, right wing, uncompromising, ideology When more than 200 Republicans sign Washington lobbyist Grover Norquists pledge that they will never raise taxes, these people, in my view, have violated their constituents. Can America avoid self-destructing? Maybe, but its not likely if voters continue threatening to vote members Who is to blame for this political insanity? Look in the mirror.

PETS AND THEIR PEOPLE IS SPONSORED BYWeve got the feed you need to keep your animals happy and healthy!CATTLE HORSES DOGS CATS BIRDS and more.I know that the width of the woolly bear caterpillars black stripe is supposed to predict the severity of winter. Are there other such signs as well? G. K., Holyoke, Mass. Tons of them! Here are just a few indicators of an unusually cold or hard winter: The bushes are full of berries. The dogwoods bloom profusely. The autumn leaves are slow to fall. There is a bumper crop of acorns and walnuts. The hornets build their nests near the ground. Apple skins and onion skins are thick. Many whitethorn blossoms are seen. Corn is hard to husk. Cherries or lilacs blossom in the fall. Evergreens produce more seeds than usual. Junipers produce more berries than usual. Weeds grow unusually tall. On the other hand, some signs of a mild winter are the partridges drumming in the fall, few or light-color spots on a gooses breastbone, nut shells that are thin, and beech nuts that are plentiful. Dogwood blooms are light, but dead nettles are many. In a similar vein of weather lore are these signs of rain: When ducks quack, when ladybugs swarm, when geese cackle, when dogs tails straighten, when the cock goes crowing to bed, on your nose. Can you describe what a new homeowners tool kit ought to contain? V. N., Round Rock, Tex. First, the essentials: a toilet plunger and some duct tape. Then the basics: a curved-claw hammer, a couple of sizes each of standard and Philips-head screwdrivers, an adjustable wrench, and both slip-joint and needlenose pliers. Throw in a pencil, some assorted sizes of nails and screws, some nuts and bolts and hollow-wall fasteners, a collection of sandpaper, and perhaps some paint brushes, paint rollers, and a tray. For the homeowner who actually knows how to use some tools, add a butt chisel, putty knife, block plane, four-in-one rasp, hacksaw, crosscut saw, drain auger, nail set, push drill and some drill points, combination square, level, and utility knife. For a more complete toolbox, dont forget the machine oil, penetrating lubricant, adhesives (white glue, wood glue, masking tape, maybe some epoxy), a sharpening stone, wire brush, and good, heavy-duty, exten sion cord. Cleanup supplies such as cheesecloth, tack cloths, lint-free rags, drop cloths, a dustpan and brush, and some singleedge razor blades come in handy. Oh, and dont forget the stepladder and toolbox. And one last essential: a good-size box of bandages. OCT. 10, MONDAY -Columbus Day (observed). Thanksgiving Day (Canada). Conjunction of Uranus and the Moon.

In pioneer days, after the vegetables were stored for the winter, it was time to go farther afield looking for wild game. Deer were fattening, and Indians and farmers sought a store of good venison for the cold winter days to come.

Full Hunters Moon Thanksgiving Day (Canada) A couple of months ago, a baby squirrel fell out of its nest and into Cassie Hobbys life. The tiny grey creature suffered a few cuts which were doctored by Cassie, who started the squirrel on small doses of antibiot thing she saw. Cassie did research on the internet to learn how to take care of the squirrel, which she named Sandy. She started out feeding her every four hours. That schedule has been relaxed a bit and now Cassie and Sandy can both get a good nights sleep in the room they share. Shes starting to wean herself, says Cassie. She eats almonds, Cheerios and pet food blocks. twigs to chew on. Sandy can often be found asleep, curled up next to her favorite toy a Beanie Baby thats about her same size. When I come home, I let her out and give her some food. She is very active and all over the place, explains Cassie. When the squirrel gets a bit bigger, Cassie plans to upgrade her accommoda tions to a more spacious three-level ferret cage. Cassie is an education major, pursuing a degree from Flagler College as she attends classes on the TCC campus in Tallahassee. She didnt want to leave the little one behind while she was still healing so Sandy joined her daily commute and attended classes with her, traveling in style in Cassies Coach box purse. Her professors didnt mind. One had even raised a squirrel himself and gave Cassie a few tips. After sitting through several classes in Science Method, Diagnostic Reading and Applied Linguistics, Sandy got healthy enough to spend the day on her own at home. Now after sharing the halls of academia with Sandy, Cassie plans to introduce the squirrel to its natural environment: the outdoors. Shes looking forward to one day getting a ferret leash so she can take Sandy outside where she can enjoy playing in the grass and maybe climb a few trees. Cassie is the daughter of Edwin and Lynn Hobby of Bristol. DANIEL WILLIAMS PHOT O PETS PEOPLEAND THEIROrphaned baby becomes an educated squirrel

Changes in the weather provide us signals on when to per form certain garden tasks. As the old saying goes, timing is everything. So, when I saw the forecast for some night temperatures in the 50s in Northwest Florida this week, it was a reminder to think about winter weeds. Winter annual weeds, those that show up as young seedlings in the fall and become quite unsightly by late-winter, will be germinating soon. Some examples of common lawn winter weeds include annual bluegrass, chickweed, henbit and Carolina geranium. These weeds are most noticeable in Feb. and March. Control, however, begins now. control begins with proper manage ment practices that encourage a dense, thriving turf. Be sure to follow mowing, watering and fertilization turfgrass. Remember that in Northwest Florida, we dont recommend applying a nitrogen-containing fertilizer after Sept. 15. Fertilizing too late in the year may increase the lawns chance of winter-kill and encourage weed growth. Even if all your management practices are perfect, a lawn can still have some weeds. If you were bothered by weeds last winter, think about applying a preemergence herbicide. A preemergence herbicide is a weed control chemical that is applied prior to weed seed germination. It can be a very effective offensive play against bothersome weeds. Not utilizing preemergence products automatically puts you in a defensive position when it comes to lawn weeds. For preemergence control of winter annual weeds apply an appropriate herbicide when nighttime tempera tures drop to 55 to 60F for several consecutive days (early October for North Florida). For season-long weed control, a second application may be needed about nine weeks after the initial application. There are many effective preemer gence products. Some recommended chemicals include atrazine, pendimethalin (Pre-M or Halts Crabgrass Preventer), or dithiopyr (Dimension). There are others check with local garden supply stores or contact Preemergence herbicides may be purchased formulated as dry granules, wettable powders or water dispersible granules or liquids. Choose a formulation that is best suited for you and your turfgrass. ALWAYS READ instructions, weeds controlled, and safety precautions. All preemergence herbicides must move into the upper portion of the soil to control weeds. Herbicides not washed into the soil are decomposed by sunlight or lost as vapors. Some herbicides are more susceptible to degradation than others. Therefore, the times varies that a herbicide can stay on the soil and still provide acceptable weed control. The sooner the herbicide is washed into the soil, the better the weed control will be typically. A minimum of one-half inch of water should be applied shortly after the herbicide application to ensure that the herbicide is activated and moved onto the surface soil to form a uniform weed control barrier. Not every lawn needs an applica tion of preemergence herbicide this time of year. If your lawn has no history of winter annual weed problems, theres probably no need to apply a preemergence herbicide to prevent non-existent seedlings from emerging. However, if you have persistent problems with winter weeds, remem ber to apply a preemergence herbicide at the right time.

Dr. Iqbal Faruqui Internal MedicineArlena Falcon, ARNPDorcas Goodman, ARNP The Medical Center OF BLOUNTSTOWNFootball season is in full swing, and the 2011-12 hunting season is cranking up. Heck, in Zone A, theyre already into general gun season. But for the rest of us, Id like to cover the rules and regulations regarding two hunting seasons that are just around the corner: muzzleloading gun and Immediately following the close of crossbow season in each zone, the muzzleloading gun season begins. Season dates run Nov. 19 Dec. 2 in Zone B, Oct. 22 Nov. 4 in Zone C and Dec. 3-9 in Zone D.During muzzleloading gun season, bows and crossbows are also legal methods of taking game on private lands, in addi tion to muzzleloaders. But on wildlife management areas (WMAs), only muzzleloaders may be used. The most common types of game to take during muzzleloader season are deer and wild hog. Only bucks may be taken, and one antler must be at least 5 inches long above the hairline. The daily bag limit on antlered deer is two. You can hunt wild hogs year-round on private lands, and there are no bag or size limits. Its also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during muzzleloading gun season. You may take only one per day, and theres a two-bird fall-season limit. But you cant hunt turkeys in Holmes County during the fall and winter. On WMAs, bag limits and antler/ size restrictions can differ, so check hunt. Legal shooting hours are a halfhour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. Except for turkeys, hunters may take resident game over feed such as corn on private lands. No baiting is allowed on WMAs, however. For hunting deer, muzzleloaders balls must be 20-gauge or larger. You may not use muzzleloaders that take smokeless powder, ones that can be loaded from the breech or those with self-contained cartridge ammunition capabilities during muzzleloading gun season. white-winged dove season begins Oct. 1 and ends Oct. 24 statewide. are noon to sunset, and theres a 15bird daily bag limit. to use for hunting doves is a shotgun, but you cant use one larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns must be plugged to a three-shell capacity (magazine and chamber combined). You may hunt doves over an aghas been planted and manipulated under normal agricultural practices. However, its against the law to scatter agricultural products over an area for the purpose of baiting. Some things you cant do while pistols or crossbows; shooting from a moving vehicle; and herding or driving doves with a vehicle. In addition to a Florida hunting license, youll need a $5 muzzleloading gun permit to hunt during muzzleloader season. To hunt deer, you need a $5 deer permit, and if youd like to take a fall turkey, youll need a $10 turkey permit ($125 for nonresidents). If youre going to hunt doves, youll need a no-cost migratory bird permit, and if you hunt on a WMA, you also must have a management area permit, which costs $26.50. All are available at your local license agents; by calling (888) HUNT-FLORIDA; or by going onSo if youre going after that monster buck during the muzzleloading gun season or dove hunting with friends and family, I hope Ive helped explain some of Floridas rules and regulations.

What you saw was a Florida fox squirrel, and biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) are asking you to go online and record your sighting of this creature twice the size of an ordinary squirrel. Fox squirrels often have distinctive, masked faces with a black head and white nose and ears but, there are wide variations in coloration from tan to gray or black. You can use the FWCs Google map application at www.public.myfwc.com/ hsc/foxsquirrel/GetLatLong.aspx to enter the location where you spotted the fox squirrel. Your squirrel sighting will be logged automatically and assigned a The fox squirrel survey is a wonderful opportunity for children and adults to become amateur naturalists and get involved in conserving Floridas wildlife. We will learn more about where the Florida fox squirrels are by asking the public to go online and report their sightings of fox squirrels, said FWC wildlife biologist Courtney Hooker. The fox squirrel survey is part of a research project by the FWC and the University of Florida Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation. It combines the latest in online-mapping technology with the publics enthusiasm about sharing their wildlife observations. The fox squirrel survey began in August, and data will be collected through at least January 2012. So far about 600 sightings of fox squirrels have been logged online. Fox squirrels have been observed throughout Florida in open woods, pine and cypress stands and mangrove swamps, but knowledge about their distribution is limited. Fox squirrels spend more time on the ground than in trees and often escape their enemies by running rather than climbing. Their favorite food is pine seed. The Shermans fox squirrel is found in the pine forests of central and northeast Florida species of special concern. The Big Cypress fox squirrel is a state-threatened species in southwest Florida. The Southeastern fox squirrel lives in the Panhandle. All of Floridas fox squirrels are protected from hunting. For more information about fox squirrels, visit the MyFWC.com/Wildlife.

Johnson. Friends and former players are raising the funds for the bronze likeness of Coach Johnson that will be erected at the entrance to the gymnasium that bears his name on the Chipola campus. During four decades of coaching basketball at Chipola and Campbellton High School, Johnsons teams won over 800 games. Between 1955 and 1961, his Campbellton teams won three state championships and recorded an incredible 55-game winning streak. His Chipola teams won 628 games from 1961 to 1993 and played in seven national tournaments. He was named Division Coach of the Year nine times, Region VIII Coach of the Year six times and Florida community college Coach of the Year four times. Following Johnsons death in 2009, many of his former players and an appropriate way to preserve his legacy. Former player Robert Trammell is coordinating the project for the Chipola Appreciation Club. The statue of Coach Johnson is being funded entirely by private donations, Trammell said. The donors want to recognize Coach Johnson for the contri butions he made to their lives by establishing a lasting memorial to this great man. The bronze statue of Johnson is being created by sculptor Bradley Cooley, of Lamont, who also has molded images of coach Bobby Bowden, entertainers Ray Charles and Otis Redding, and golfer Bobby Jones. The Johnson statue will be unveiled in a special ceremony at Chipolas Homecoming basketball game on February 25, 2012. Were off to a great start raising funds for the statue, Trammell said, but we still need additional support to complete the project. We are grateful for all contributions, large or small. Tax-deductible contribu tions should be mailed to the Chipola Foundation, 3094 Indian Circle, Marianna, FL 32446.

Page 2 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTo OBER 5, 2011 ARREST REPORTS compiled by Journal Editor Teresa EubanksWewa woman charged with DUI early SundayA 43-year-old Wewahitchka woman was arrested on a charge of DUI after a Liberty County deputy spotted her vehicle weaving across the road and veering into the oncoming lane several times early Sunday morning. Gidget M. Oakley was traveling east on SR 20 around 1:45 a.m. when Deputy Jonathan Gentry, who was coming up behind her, saw her go across the center line and then swerve back into her own lane. As he monitored her driving, she continued to edge out of her lane on both sides. Gentry saw her go into the westbound lane again, but this time, she was facing oncoming traffic. Oakley managed to swerve back onto her side of the road in time to avoid hitting a westbound vehicle. The deputy signaled for her to pull over near Odell Owens Road. In his report, Gentry noted that the driver smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage. He noticed a beer of the backseat and later found an open can of beer in a cup holder by the drivers seat. When asked if she had been drinking, she told him, I had one about 30 minutes ago. She later said she had consumed two or three. sobriety test but was unable to complete the exercises, swaying, stumbling and losing her balance as she attempted to follow the deputys directions to walk, turn around and follow the motion of his pen with her eyes. She was handcuffed and taken to the Liberty County Jail. When asked to submit to a breath test to determine her level of intoxication, she said, No. I know Im going to blow over (the legal limit), so whats the point? She was later released on $1,500 bond.Man with prior convictions charged in batteryA 51-year-old Calhoun County man with prior convictions for battery was arrested last week on a charge of felony domestic battery after a family member reported that he struck his wife. Melvin Kenneth Dawson denied the allegation. He told a deputy that he did nothing more than wake up his wife and ask her for some money on Sept. 28. Two family members offered a different account of the incident, with one stating that Dawson snatched his wife off the couch and hit her in the head. Another family member said the that she did not see Dawson throw a punch. The victim said Dawson grabbed her off the couch and struck her above the left ear. Calhoun County Deputy John Scheetz noted that the womans shirt was torn and the left side of her face was red, which was photographed to document the report. Dawsons bond was set at $3,000 for the battery charge. He is being held without bond for violating his probation.Man charged with creating disturbanceA disturbance at a Bristol convenience store resulted in one arrest after deputies were dispatched to the scene last week. Deputies were called out to the BP station around 9:15 p.m. on Sept. 28 after getting a report that a white male, who had left his vehicle at the edge of the stores parking lot near CR 12 South, was yelling, cursing and kicking the recycling bins outside the business. When deputies arrived, David Carson, 35, started walking toward them as he continued cursing and demanded to know, What the **** are you here for? After deputies said they had received a call about a disturbance, Carson asked angrily, Who the **** called yall? I wanna know who called yall! He then accused the deputies of harassing him. In his report, Deputy Chad Smith noted that Carson smelled strongly of alcohol. He repeatedly asked Carson to calm down and lower his voice, which he would only do momentarily before he resumed yelling. After giving David numerous opportunities to cease his behavior and leave peacefully, he continued being disorderly by hollering and cussing, Smith wrote in his report. Carson was handcuffed, put in the back seat of a patrol car and driven two blocks to the Liberty County Jail. He continued yelling and cursing after being placed in a holding cell. He was charged with disorderly intoxication. Due to a probation violation, he is being held without bond.LEWIS DAVID CARSON A Calhoun County couple was charged with possession of methamphetamine after the Calhoun-Liberty Drug Task Force served a search warrant on their home last week. The couple Thomas Charles Dawsey, 42, and his wife, Cristy Love Dawsey, 32, were both at the 20180 Central Avenue residence in Blountstown when investigators arrived Sept. 27. The wife was found in the backyard. She claimed ownership of two plastic containers with methamphetamine found in her purse. The husband was inside the residence. Investigators found a plastic toothpick bottle that contained methamphetamine located in his right front pants pocket. He stated that the methamphetamine was his. Both were later given conditional releases from jail. Investigators began watching the residence after getting a tip that both marijuana and methamphetamine were being sold at the home, where they were also alerted that there was a lot the day and night. While the home was under surveillance, investigators took a look inside a trash can that had been pushed out for pickup. While pulling out two trash bags, Blountstown Police Patrick Crawford noticed the strong odor of raw marijuana. They found a pint-sized sandwich bag containing marijuana and returned later with a search warrant. Other members of the Task Force working this case included Lt. Mark Mallory, Sgt. Jared Nichols, Deputy Bobby Simms, Deputy Scotty Norris and Correctional Officer Christian Smith.Pair arrested on meth charges cristyCRISTY dawseyDAWSEY thomasTHOMAS dawseyDAWSEY GidIDGetET oaOAKleyLEY RonaldONALD burnetteBURNETTEA Quincy man escaped serious injury but lost his 2000 Jeep Liberty when early morning crash Saturday at Crows Corner in Liberty County.

OCTo OBER 5, 2011 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 To the editor,After reading the letter from Florida Public Utilities (FPU) President Jeff Householder, informing their customers of a second rate decrease this year, I was disappointed in discovering that Bristol intention of purchasing the electric infrastructures within the city limits. I do not know the costs of these electric facilities, but have heard it will cost several million dollars to purchase and thousands more in legal fees. Undoubtedly, the city taxpayers will foot these costs through electric rates and additional taxes. Of course it is all being done by the city council and their attorney without input from us taxpayers. I am very hesitant in allowing a critical function like electric service to be take over by the city with no experience in maintaining and operating such a system. FPU is an established company with the resources and experience to continue to provide us with safe reliable electric service. FPU has served our community for as long as I can remember and provides us with lineman stationed here in Bristol dedicated to serve our needs. In these tight economic times, I do not believe a takeover of FPU is the best use of public funds and the citys time. It is time for the citizens of Bristol to let the council know that we do not want our money spent on this effort. As a retired Clerk of City of Bristol for 37 years lets not make a change lets keep what we have no problem! Betty A. Ramsey SPEAK UP!

This is especially true of senior citizens and some others who have physical problems that interfere with their daily lives. As County Sheriff, Conyers says he wants to do something to alleviate this situation. He particularly wants to focus on: to check on them. family or friends to check on them.

At the time you call into dispatch to get on the call list, advise them of the best time to call you. This is intended to be a service to our citizens.

According to FHP Trooper Denise Grimes, Mack Carder was parked on the shoulder of the road before he began easing his 1995 Chevrolet S-10 pickup back onto SR 20 around 2:55 p.m. Several vehicles coming up behind him went around the truck, including a 2003 Honda Accord, driven by William Price, 28, of Blountstown. As Price was about to pass him, Carder began to make a left turn and hit the Honda. Carder was cited for making a left turn while being passed. Price was not injured. His car was totaled.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTo OBER 5, 2011 COMMENTARYAmericas threat from withinAmerica is in trouble, and to paraphrase Pogo the comic strip character, We have met the enemy and he is us. The quote was a parody of a message sent in 1813 from U.S. Navy Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry to Army General William Henry Harrison after the Battle of Lake Erie, stating, We have met the enemy, and they are ours. A cursory view of Americas dysfunctional system of governance indicates that Pogos and Commodore Perrys comments ring true today. The Constitutional system of government devised by the Founders in Philadelphia in September 1787 is a representative democracy, a form of government founded on the principle of elected individuals representing the people, as opposed to autocracy and direct democracy. Direct democracy is a form of government in which people collectively make decisions for themselves, rather than having their political affairs decided by representatives. Direct democracy is classically termed pure democracy. Direct democracy stands in contrast to a representative democracy in which the decisive authority is vested in a subset of people, usually based on elections. state. The federal government is unable to cope with very complicated and critical issues of governance. The result of our political and governmental incompetence is a serious deterioration of Americas internal strengths The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that outgoing Secretary of Defense Robert Gates made some scathing observations about the state of our democracy when he was recently awarded the 2011 Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. According to the Inquirer, Gates blamed three factors for our politicians current inability to make the compromises needed to get anything done. One, highly partisan redistricting, which pushes politicians to extreme positions that cater to the bases of their parties. Two, lopsided wave elections, which embolden the winners to impose their agenda on the other side by brute force, and three, changes in the composition of the news media that have fueled the coarsening and dumbing-down of the national political dialogue. You could add other frequently noted failings of our system to the list, such as the role of big money in politics, powerful special-interest lobbies, and Senate rules cant piece of legislation. The international community is watching America CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS implode. Charlie Rose recently interviewed a representative of the Chinese government who made the point that unlike America, China takes the long view on issues of governance. Charlie Rose asked the Chinese fellow if China was worried more about the amount of money that the U.S. owes China, or the American governments inability to deal with serious national and international issues. The Chinese man said that his government worries about Americas inability to govern. My experience on a NATO staff was that when any country, friend or foe, particularly America, began acting irrationally other nations became apprehensive. Nation states, like individuals, dont like loose cannons on deck. In the international community, America is now viewed by some nations as a loose cannon on deck because of the irrational behavior of the government in Washington, particularly the Congress and even more so the Republican controlled House of Representatives. The actions and comments of the Tea Partiers elected to the House are bizarre. Trashing the government of which they are now a part of makes no sense to me. I would like to think that they were sent there to govern, not burn the place down. An Associated Press analysis of Congress dysfunction contained the following comment. At the core of this gridlock is a steadily growing partisanship. Couple that with a rising distaste for compromise by avid voters. Unswerving conservatives and liberals dominate the two parties nomination processes, electing law makers who pledge never to stray from their ideologies. ate Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate that compromised on issues in the best interest of America, not political parties. Those days are gone forever. There are no liberal Republicans anymore, and the existence of the few remaining moderate Republicans is threatened by Tea Partiers who have elected and intend to continue electing the most radical, right wing, uncompromising, ideology When more than 200 Republicans sign Washington lobbyist Grover Norquists pledge that they will never raise taxes, these people, in my view, have violated their constituents. Can America avoid self-destructing? Maybe, but its not likely if voters continue threatening to vote members Who is to blame for this political insanity? Look in the mirror.

Are there other such signs as well? G. K., Holyoke, Mass. Tons of them! Here are just a few indicators of an unusually cold or hard winter: The bushes are full of berries. The dogwoods bloom profusely. The autumn leaves are slow to fall. There is a bumper crop of acorns and walnuts. The hornets build their nests near the ground. Apple skins and onion skins are thick. Many whitethorn blossoms are seen. Corn is hard to husk. Cherries or lilacs blossom in the fall. Evergreens produce more seeds than usual. Junipers produce more berries than usual. Weeds grow unusually tall. On the other hand, some signs of a mild winter are the partridges drumming in the fall, few or light-color spots on a gooses breastbone, nut shells that are thin, and beech nuts that are plentiful. Dogwood blooms are light, but dead nettles are many. In a similar vein of weather lore are these signs of rain: When ducks quack, when ladybugs swarm, when geese cackle, when dogs tails straighten, when the cock goes crowing to bed, on your nose. Can you describe what a new homeowners tool kit ought to contain? V. N., Round Rock, Tex. First, the essentials: a toilet plunger and some duct tape. Then the basics: a curved-claw hammer, a couple of sizes each of standard and Philips-head screwdrivers, an adjustable wrench, and both slip-joint and needlenose pliers. Throw in a pencil, some assorted sizes of nails and screws, some nuts and bolts and hollow-wall fasteners, a collection of sandpaper, and perhaps some paintbrushes, paint rollers, and a tray. For the homeowner who actually knows how to use some tools, add a butt chisel, putty knife, block plane, four-in-one rasp, hacksaw, crosscut saw, drain auger, nail set, push drill and some drill points, combination square, level, and utility knife. For a more complete toolbox, dont forget the machine oil, penetrating lubricant, adhesives (white glue, wood glue, masking tape, maybe some epoxy), a sharpening stone, wire brush, and good, heavy-duty, extension cord. Cleanup supplies such as cheesecloth, tack cloths, lint-free rags, drop cloths, a dustpan and brush, and some singleedge razor blades come in handy. Oh, and dont forget the stepladder and toolbox.

Deer were fattening, and Indians and farmers sought a store of good venison for the cold winter days to come.

Full Hunters Moon Thanksgiving Day (Canada) A couple of months ago, a baby squirrel fell out of its nest and into Cassie Hobbys life. The tiny grey creature suffered a few cuts which were doctored by Cassie, who started the squirrel on small doses of antibiotthing she saw. Cassie did research on the internet to learn how to take care of the squirrel, which she named Sandy. She started out feeding her every four hours. That schedule has been relaxed a bit and now Cassie and Sandy can both get a good nights sleep in the room they share. Shes starting to wean herself, says Cassie. She eats almonds, Cheerios and pet food blocks. twigs to chew on. Sandy can often be found asleep, curled up next to her favorite toy a Beanie Baby thats about her same size. When I come home, I let her out and give her some food. She is very active and all over the place, explains Cassie. When the squirrel gets a bit bigger, Cassie plans to upgrade her accommodations to a more spacious three-level ferret cage. Cassie is an education major, pursuing a degree from Flagler College as she attends classes on the TCC campus in Tallahassee. She didnt want to leave the little one behind while she was still healing so Sandy joined her daily commute and attended classes with her, traveling in style in Cassies Coach box purse. Her professors didnt mind. One had even raised a squirrel himself and gave Cassie a few tips. After sitting through several classes in Science Method, Diagnostic Reading and Applied Linguistics, Sandy got healthy enough to spend the day on her own at home. Now after sharing the halls of academia with Sandy, Cassie plans to introduce the squirrel to its natural environment: the outdoors. Shes looking forward to one day getting a ferret leash so she can take Sandy outside where she can enjoy playing in the grass and maybe climb a few trees. Cassie is the daughter of Edwin and Lynn Hobby of Bristol. DANIEEL WILLIAMS PHOTT O PETS PEEOPLEEAND T THEEIROrphaned baby becomes an educated squirrel

Changes in the weather provide us signals on when to per form certain garden tasks. As the old saying goes, timing is everything. So, when I saw the forecast for some night temperatures in the 50s in Northwest Florida this week, it was a reminder to think about winter weeds. Winter annual weeds, those that show up as young seedlings in the fall and become quite unsightly by late-winter, will be germinating soon. Some examples of common lawn winter weeds include annual bluegrass, chickweed, henbit and Carolina geranium. These weeds are most noticeable in Feb. and March. Control, however, begins now. control begins with proper management practices that encourage a dense, thriving turf. Be sure to follow mowing, watering and fertilization turfgrass. Remember that in Northwest Florida, we dont recommend applying a nitrogen-containing fertilizer after Sept. 15. Fertilizing too late in the year may increase the lawns chance of winter-kill and encourage weed growth. Even if all your management practices are perfect, a lawn can still have some weeds. If you were bothered by weeds last winter, think about applying a preemergence herbicide. A preemergence herbicide is a weed control chemical that is applied prior to weed seed germination. It can be a very effective offensive play against bothersome weeds. Not utilizing preemergence products automatically puts you in a defensive position when it comes to lawn weeds. For preemergence control of winter annual weeds apply an appropriate herbicide when nighttime temperatures drop to 55 to 60F for several consecutive days (early October for North Florida). For season-long weed control, a second application may be needed about nine weeks after the initial application. There are many effective preemergence products. Some recommended chemicals include atrazine, pendimethalin (Pre-M or Halts Crabgrass Preventer), or dithiopyr (Dimension). There are others check with local garden supply stores or contact Preemergence herbicides may be purchased formulated as dry granules, wettable powders or water dispersible granules or liquids. Choose a formulation that is best suited for you and your turfgrass. ALWAYS READ instructions, weeds controlled, and safety precautions. All preemergence herbicides must move into the upper portion of the soil to control weeds. Herbicides not washed into the soil are decomposed by sunlight or lost as vapors. Some herbicides are more susceptible to degradation than others. Therefore, the times varies that a herbicide can stay on the soil and still provide acceptable weed control. The sooner the herbicide is washed into the soil, the better the weed control will be typically. A minimum of one-half inch of water should be applied shortly after the herbicide application to ensure that the herbicide is activated and moved onto the surface soil to form a uniform weed control barrier. Not every lawn needs an application of preemergence herbicide this time of year. If your lawn has no history of winter annual weed problems, theres probably no need to apply a preemergence herbicide to prevent non-existent seedlings from emerging. However, if you have persistent problems with winter weeds, remember to apply a preemergence herbicide at the right time.

Heck, in Zone A, theyre already into general gun season. But for the rest of us, Id like to cover the rules and regulations regarding two hunting seasons that are just around the corner: muzzleloading gun and Immediately following the close of crossbow season in each zone, the muzzleloading gun season begins. Season dates run Nov. 19 Dec. 2 in Zone B, Oct. 22 Nov. 4 in Zone C and Dec. 3-9 in Zone D.During muzzleloading gun season, bows and crossbows are also legal methods of taking game on private lands, in addi tion to muzzleloaders. But on wildlife management areas (WMAs), only muzzleloaders may be used. The most common types of game to take during muzzleloader season are deer and wild hog. Only bucks may be taken, and one antler must be at least 5 inches long above the hairline. The daily bag limit on antlered deer is two. You can hunt wild hogs year-round on private lands, and there are no bag or size limits. Its also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during muzzleloading gun season. You may take only one per day, and theres a two-bird fall-season limit. But you cant hunt turkeys in Holmes County during the fall and winter. On WMAs, bag limits and antler/ size restrictions can differ, so check hunt. Legal shooting hours are a halfhour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. Except for turkeys, hunters may take resident game over feed such as corn on private lands. No baiting is allowed on WMAs, however. For hunting deer, muzzleloaders balls must be 20-gauge or larger. You may not use muzzleloaders that take smokeless powder, ones that can be loaded from the breech or those with self-contained cartridge ammunition capabilities during muzzleloading gun season. white-winged dove season begins Oct. 1 and ends Oct. 24 statewide. are noon to sunset, and theres a 15bird daily bag limit. to use for hunting doves is a shotgun, but you cant use one larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns must be plugged to a three-shell capacity (magazine and chamber combined). You may hunt doves over an aghas been planted and manipulated under normal agricultural practices. However, its against the law to  scatter agricultural products over an area for the purpose of baiting. Some things you cant do while pistols or crossbows; shooting from a moving vehicle; and herding or driving doves with a vehicle. In addition to a Florida hunting license, youll need a $5 muzzleloading gun permit to hunt during muzzleloader season. To hunt deer, you need a $5 deer permit, and if youd like to take a fall turkey, youll need a $10 turkey permit ($125 for nonresidents). If youre going to hunt doves, youll need a no-cost migratory bird permit, and if you hunt on a WMA, you also must have a management area permit, which costs $26.50. All are available at your local license agents; by calling (888) HUNT-FLORIDA; or by going onSo if youre going after that monster buck during the muzzleloading gun season or dove hunting with friends and family, I hope Ive helped explain some of Floridas rules and regulations.

What you saw was a Florida fox squirrel, and biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) are asking you to go online and record your sighting of this creature twice the size of an ordinary squirrel. Fox squirrels often have distinctive, masked faces with a black head and white nose and ears but, there are wide variations in coloration from tan to gray or black. You can use the FWCs Google map application at www.public.myfwc.com/ hsc/foxsquirrel/GetLatLong.aspx to enter the location where you spotted the fox squirrel. Your squirrel sighting will be logged automatically and assigned a The fox squirrel survey is a wonderful opportunity for children and adults to become amateur naturalists and get involved in conserving Floridas wildlife. We will learn more about where the Florida fox squirrels are by asking the public to go online and report their sightings of fox squirrels, said FWC wildlife biologist Courtney Hooker. The fox squirrel survey is part of a research project by the FWC and the University of Florida Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation. It combines the latest in online-mapping technology with the publics enthusiasm about sharing their wildlife observations. The fox squirrel survey began in August, and data will be collected through at least January 2012. So far about 600 sightings of fox squirrels have been logged online. Fox squirrels have been observed throughout Florida in open woods, pine and cypress stands and mangrove swamps, but knowledge about their distribution is limited. Fox squirrels spend more time on the ground than in trees and often escape their enemies by running rather than climbing. Their favorite food is pine seed. The Shermans fox squirrel is found in the pine forests of central and northeast Florida species of special concern. The Big Cypress fox squirrel is a state-threatened species in southwest Florida. The Southeastern fox squirrel lives in the Panhandle. All of Floridas fox squirrels are protected from hunting. For more information about fox squirrels, visit the MyFWC.com/Wildlife.

Johnson. Friends and former players are raising the funds for the bronze likeness of Coach Johnson that will be erected at the entrance to the gymnasium that bears his name on the Chipola campus. During four decades of coaching basketball at Chipola and Campbellton High School, Johnsons teams won over 800 games. Between 1955 and 1961, his Campbellton teams won three state championships and recorded an incredible 55-game winning streak. His Chipola teams won 628 games from 1961 to 1993 and played in seven national tournaments. He was named Division Coach of the Year nine times, Region VIII Coach of the Year six times and Florida community college Coach of the Year four times. Following Johnsons death in 2009, many of his former players and an appropriate way to preserve his legacy. Former player Robert Trammell is coordinating the project for the Chipola Appreciation Club. The statue of Coach Johnson is being funded entirely by private donations, Trammell said. The donors want to recognize Coach Johnson for the contributions he made to their lives by establishing a lasting memorial to this great man. The bronze statue of Johnson is being created by sculptor Bradley Cooley, of Lamont, who also has molded images of coach Bobby Bowden, entertainers Ray Charles and Otis Redding, and golfer Bobby Jones. The Johnson statue will be unveiled in a special ceremony at Chipolas Homecoming basketball game on February 25, 2012. Were off to a great start raising funds for the statue, Trammell said, but we still need additional support to complete the project. We are grateful for all contributions, large or small. Tax-deductible contribu tions should be mailed to the Chipola Foundation, 3094 Indian Circle, Marianna, FL 32446.
