Yon learned had been awarded the medal after he returned to the United States in 1944. by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorCiting my inability to meet cash to budget requirements in the last year Health Department Director Dr. Gene Charbonneau turned in his resignation last Wednesday, making it effective the following day, Nov. 3. In a two-sentence email to Michael L. Sentman, Assistant Deputy Secretary for Health, Charbonneau informed him of his resignation and added, I did my best. Charbonneau has served as the head of both the Calhoun County and Liberty County Health Health Department business manager Kelly King was appointed acting administrator following last weeks resignation. King explained that the state requires each health department to maintain a certain budget to cash ratio and in the case of Liberty County, it for the end of October is expected to maintain at monthly. The resignation leaves the two-county area short one physician but King said both health departments expect to maintain their current level of care. At present, Dr. Jerry Boland is at the Calhoun Joti Keshav sees patients at the Liberty County Health Department once a week. We have four nurse practitioners who see our patients, said King. The community will still be receiving health care services. We have Health Dept. Director quitsby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA Bristol woman who worked as a licensed practical nurse with the Liberty County Health Department for approximately six years has been charged with four counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. May 26 by Health Department Director Dr. Gene Charbonneau. According to a probable cause affidavit, the Department of Health reported that Lewis had presented fraudulent prescriptions for Adderall, a Schedule 2 controlled substance, on at least four different occasions between Feb. 8 and May 12 at a Marianna pharmacy. Lewis gave a statement at the Jackson County Sheriffs Office in Marianna recently in which she admitted to forging Charbonneaus name on prescription slips. She was not taken into custody, according to Assistant State Attorney Shad Redmon. She will get a notice to appear for a December arraignment date in Jackson County, he said At that point, we will offer her the opportunity to enter a pretrial intervention program based on her cooperation and admission that she did it. He said it was a one year program with random drug tests which would require her to check in monthly as well as undergo drug evaluation and counseling. and write letters of apology to Charbonneau and the pharmacist. Redmon said that the charges will be dismissed at the end of the one year period if she completes the program without any violations. He said she did not have any prior arrests. If she does what shes supposed to do, she will have the opportunity to get her record expunged, Redmon said.Nurse charged with forging prescriptionsEx-inmate suit against deputy and two sheriffsby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA former jail inmate has filed a federal lawsuit against ex-Calhoun County Transportation Deputy William Strawn, Calhoun County Sheriff David Tatum and retired Liberty County Sheriff Harrell Wood Revell claiming she was the victim of repeated criminal sexual assaults while in their custody. The woman, who is represented by attorney Roosevelt Randolph of damages as well as attorneys fees and costs. The plaintiff alleges she was raped several times by Strawn in 2007. According to the lawsuit, Strawn would check her out from the womens dorm at the Liberty County Jail to drive her to court appearances and medical appointments. After leaving the jail, Strawn would take a detour to a secluded area, remove her from the patrol car, pull her pants down and have sex with her. He kept her handcuffed and shackled during the act and did not wear a condom, according to the lawsuit.See FEDERAL LAWSUIT continued on page 21 See DIRECTOR QUITS continued on page 21 50includes tax THE CALHOUN-LIBER TY J OURNAL Volume 31, Number 45 Wednesday, N ov. 9, 2011 CLJ News.com Blountstown man killed by stray buckshot pellet on hunting tripby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA single buckshot pellet that entered his abdomen and severed two arteries claimed the life of 74-year-old C.L. Capps during a hunting trip Friday, according to South Carolina coroner Martin Sauls. It was a freak accident, Sauls said, noting that the gun was well over 100 yards away. The fact that he was hit by the buckshot was incredible, he said, explaining, Shotguns are not long range weapons. Capps daughter, Cindy Lollie, said it heart attack because there was no visible blood. When EMTs arrived, they found what Lollie called one speck under his arm on the left side of his rib cage where the pellet went in. The coroner said the buckshot severed the left renal artery and the abdominal aorta, causing internal bleeding. Capps was dog hunting with his lifelong friend, Pot Shuler, on an isolated area known as the Purrysburg section of Jasper County, South Carolina on Nov. 4 between 5:30 and 6 p.m. It was right before the time change, so it was still daylight, said Lt. Robert McCullough of the South Carolina Dept. of Natural Resources (SCDNR). They were running dogs, said Lollie. My dad had already killed two deer that morning. She said her father saw a deer coming their way and alerted his longtime hunting companion, saying: James! Big buck! James! Big buck! Capps was about 150 yards from Shuler, she said. She said the deer did not run between them. Mr. Pot made a straight shot and killed the deer. My dad was at a 30 degree angle to the right, explained Lollie. That stray buckshot just kind of peeled off to the right, she said. Its just unheard of for a shotgun pellet to carry that distance. The investigation is still ongoing, according to SCDNR Lt. Gentry Phames. No charges are expected. It was an unfortunate situation. We know both parties have been friends for years, Phames said. Capps body was returned to Blountstown late Monday following an autopsy on Sunday. Shuler was devastated by her fathers death, Lollie said. I just told him, we love you just like we always have and well get through this. She said the two men have been friends most of their lives and have taken this same hunting trip half a dozen times.

(850) 222-7199 Tell em you saw it in The Calhoun-Liberty Journal & CLJNews.comGainesville man charged with DUI with property damage after wreck at Blountstown motel A 74-year-old Gainesville man was charged with DUI with property damage after he wrecked his vehicle, knocked his boat off the trailer he was towing and sent water spewing after breaking a water main on the east side of the Airport Motel on SR 20 East in Blountstown around 5 p.m. Thursday. The driver, identified as Roger Brenton Taylor, told FHP Trooper Wes Harsey he was trying to back into the parking space in front of his room at the motel. He said he didnt know how his 2008 Hyundai SUV, boat trailer and boat ended up on the grass next to the motel. There was extensive damage to the left side of the SUV and the boat trailer. While speaking with Taylor the trooper noted the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage and saw an open bottle of vodka in the rear hatch of the SUV. The bottle was three-quarters empty. Taylor acknowledged having a couple of mixed drinks and something else while at the Pine Creek boat ramp in Wakulla County earlier that afternoon. Harsey determined that Taylor was intoxicated and accelerated out of control while backing up, causing the boat and trailer to jackknife into the left side of his vehicle. His SUV continued southwest from the parking lot into the grass, traveling over a water faucet and six-inch high tree stump before ejecting the Gheenoe canoe from the boat trailer. Breath samples taken nearly two hours later to determine his level of intoxication resulted in readings of .136 and .145. The legal limit is .08. In addition to the DUI, Taylor was also cited for careless driving and possession of an open container of alcohol. ROGER T AYLORBristol man arrested for holding gun on 3 people at apartmentWendell Moore, 20, of Bristol was charged with two counts of aggravated assault Saturday night at Sutton Creek Apartments in Blountstown. According to a report from the Blountstown Police Department, Moore sent numerous text messages and made repeated calls to his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Kristal McDaniel, 19. When she answered the phone, he told her he was at her front door and would shoot it down if he had to. McDaniel did not respond, nor did she go outside. When McDaniel later went out onto her front porch to smoke a cigarette, she found that Moore was waiting for her. He began yelling and then grabbed her, attempted to choke her and slammed her against the apartment door. Two friends inside McDaniels apartment heard the disturbance, opened the door and yanked McDaniel inside. Moore ran off but returned later with a small black gun. At some point, McDaniel opened her door to check on her two friends and was met by Moore, who pointed the gun in her face and then turned it on her friends. McDaniel and one of the men ran inside her apartment; the second man went to another apartment. A next door neighbor who heard the disturbance came out, saw Moore pointing the gun and made him leave. McDaniel gave a statement at the police department in which she explained that she and Moore had an offand-on relationship and that Moore was aware that she is three months pregnant. WENDELL MOOREDriver kills black bear crossing SR 20 Friday near Chipola River A surprise encounter with a black bear caused an estimated $2,500 in damages to a vehicle early last Friday evening. According to FHP Trooper Wes Harsey, Jerry Wayne Arrant of Blountstown and his wife, Donna, were westbound on SR 20, east of Chipola River, around 7 p.m. when a 200-lb black bear ran in front of their 2003 Ford Expedition. The bear was killed when it was hit by the right side of the SUV. The Arrants were not injured. The bear was turned over to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for analysis.Truck damaged after hitting bear on CR 12 in Liberty Co.A black bear was killed when it walked into the path of a pickup traveling into a right curve on CR 12, about one mile south of CR 333, in Liberty County last Wednesday, Nov. 2.

NOVEMBER 9, 2011 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Cain misrepresented COMMENTARYWASHINGTON Herman Cain makes much of the fact that hes not a politician, touting inexperience as a virtue in his campaign for president. Speaking at the National Press Club recently, he noted that when he took over the helm of Godfathers Pizza, at the time a failing restaurant chain, that he had never made a pizza. He learned the business by talk ing to those closest to the problem, from customers to suppliers, to determine where the company had lost focus. But much, much more was made of another aspect of his Press Club Appearance. He is asking voters to trust him to apply the same lead ership principle to the federal government, an appealing if simplistic notion that is being tested by Cains response to the broad outline of the allegations against Cain are famil iar. Two women were reported to have brought sexual harassment charges against Cain when he headed the National Restaurant Association in the mid-1990s, a time when the subject of sexual harassment had gained new currency in the workplace in the aftermath of allegations brought by Anita Hill against Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. When Cain arrived at the National Press Club, he faced a media scrum with cameras lining the back wall and reporters determined to pin him down on the facts as they were rapidly evolving. Cain started the day saying he knew nothing about any settlement that the Restaurant Association might have made on his behalf, but by the time he addressed the Press Club luncheon audience, he jokingly said he hoped the settlement wasnt for too much money because I didnt do anything. He said he welcomed the chance to clear the air, and after he concluded his formal remarks, patiently took questions for several minutes as the president of the press club pressed him for answers. He called the charges baseless, said he didnt know the source of the witch hunt, attributing it to his rise in the polls and what he called the growing target on his back. Cain leads national polls among the Republican candidates, other surprise since Romney is barely contesting Iowa after having done dismally there four years ago. At the end of the Q and A session, Associated Press broadfor the Press Club like he did at a media event in Omaha with his much viewed ode to pizza to the tune of John Lennons Imagine. Cain demurred, saying it was hard enough to speak a dozen times a day without also having to sing, but then he relented. Explaining that his faith is a big part of his life, he came to the microphone and sang the hymn, Amaz ing Grace. He has a good voice, and the audience was charmed. It should be pointed out that very few reporters, if any, were seated in the ballroom. Judging by the applause, supporters of the Cain campaign were well represented along with public-relations professionals, media consultants and special interest lobbyists of all kinds. Working media for the most part had separate seating and were furiously scribbling notes or tapping away on their laptops. A reporter at a press table in the balcony said Cains singing easily made the top ten of the oddest political events hed attended. Odd, yes, but as the video clip made the rounds on YouTube, it fed the impression that Cain had simply broken into song as a way to avoid questions he didnt want to answer. While its true that Cain mishandled the revelations about his is consistency, his willingness to sing when asked is not part of the problem, but a window into the authenticity that voters

Liberty Post & Barn PoleInc.Phone (850) 643-5995To the editor, On Oct. 28 I saw a Calhoun County dump truck traveling south on Myers Dairy Road, crossing Bullhead Bay Road. I knew that the property to the south of Bullhead Bay Road was privately owned. I followed that Calhoun County equipment (two excavators and many dump trucks) that was being used to widen an existing two trail road. There are zero houses on Myers Dairy Road south of Bullhead Bay Road nor are there any on Pole Road, the two roads being widened. The two roads have also have lime rock spread and packed at an early date. A call was placed to the Clerk of the Court in Calhoun County and her comment was that the road work was OK because it was federal grant money that had been obtained by Sonny OBryan.

Some of you may not know but in 2011 the black bear in Florida was removed from the endangered/threatened list by experts associated with the FWC (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission). This does not mean that there is now a season for hunting bears, it just means that we are one step closer to regaining the privilege that was taken from sportsmen and women in Florida. If you take the time to look on any website about bears in Florida you will see that the population of bears for the past 10 years is still listed around 3,000 to 3,500. If you spend any time around Carrabelle, Sumatra, Eastpoint or Telogia you would think that all 3,500 are within their city limits. The time is now for the sportsmen and women to address this with the FWC. The FWC will present the new authored Bear Management Liberty County. I, as a member of the Florida Bear Management team, invite everyone to meet the FWC be held at Veterans Memorial Civic Center in Bristol on Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. (ET). If you are concerned with the increasing population of bears, please attend this meeting.

If the result is 6.0 or lower, this is the likely culprit. Add lime to increase the pH. If you think that you already have enough cal cium, weather conditions may have prevented the celery from absorbing it.

Have you ever heard of that? P. P., Silver Spring, Md. Sporty superstitions are a dime a dozen, and thats a common one. Few people, except possibly card players, take their superstitions as seriously as do sports players and fans. Here are just a few examples: If you play ice hockey, dont let sticks lie crossed on the ice. Fishermen spit on their bait and baseball players spit on their hands. Basketball players wipe the soles of their sneaker, while bowlers carry good luck charms. Whatever the sport, but especially in football, players often touch their goal for good luck before the match begins. Any athlete may consider certain items of clothing or jewelry to be a good or bad luck charm. As with any amulet, talisman, gem, or mascot, the athletic charm is considered protection against a the item is often bestowed because it was carried or worn when the player had a particularly auspicious outcome, although sometimes the belief comes from a negative outcome during the one game when the item wasnt on hand. It may be a hat, a ring, a piece of sports equipment such as the baseball glove, or virtually anything that can be carried into the arena. Whether it is a lucky glove or not, however, no baseball glove should point to your own teams dugout. Likewise, the baseball bat should never lie crosswise in front of your own dugout.This year, for the first time, we had wild iris growing in a swampy area near our house. Were miles from the near est neighbor and I havent seen the irises growing anywhere else nearby. How did they get there? H. M., Glenwood, Minn. Unlike the garden variety of irises (family Iridaceae), wild irises like moist, swampy places and can withstand having their feet wet for some period of time. Chances are that your swampy area is part of a water shed area or runoff zone, and the rhizomes (those bulby rootstocks) or the seeds of the irises may have made their way downstream until they reached your property and dug in. Irises are self-seeding, so once a single plant got a foothold, others would soon follow. Seeds travel in all sorts of mysterious ways. Since irises can be propagated from either the seeds or the rhizomes, its also possible that some seeds were transported with a little help from a feathered friend or even through the excrement of an animal (moose, deer) that may have eaten the relished iris tubers for dinner, then traveled to your backyard before depositing his droppings. Many seeds have protec tive coatings that make them resistant to the digestive juices of the birds and animals that may eat them. It is said that Charles Darwin once planted an entire acre in seeds that he scavenged from the feet of migratory birds. Just as squirrels and chipmunks inadvertently plant many oak trees by forgetting where they buried their nuts, so too do other species help to distribute natures bounty.

The out of the end zone by stopping them on two fourth and goals from the 1 tempts on two other possessions. The Tigers defense sealed the deal with a minute and a half left in the game with an interception. Head Coach Greg Jordan was relieved that his team was able to win and avoid a tiebreaker game. We knew that West Gadsden was a good football team. They probably played the best game of the year against us. Thank goodness our defense continues to play like they have all year.

Page 16 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 9, 2011Decreasing day length is a signal to start preparing for winter. Soon, deciduous shrubs will drop their leaves and the landscape will appear stark and less impressive. To keep the gloomy days of winter at bay, add cool season bedding plants to the landscape. Bedding plants are those that are commonly used in resi dential and commercial landscapes to provide color and interest. No other group of plants can so quickly and economically create a colorful landscape. Most bedding plants are annuals. These short-lived plants grow from seed, bloom and die within one growing season. The transient nature of annuals means that at the end of their season when they are no longer attractive, annuals are removed and replaced with new plantings. based on the temperatures they prefer. Cool season bedding plants do best in the cold to mild temperatures of October through early May and generally tolerate typical winter freezes without protection. According to a University of Florida/IFAS publication, bedding plants that can be added to the North Florida landscape now include alyssum, babys breath, calendula, carnation, dianthus, dusty miller, foxglove, hollyhock, ornamental cabbage and kale, pansy, petunia, snapdragons and violas. Most annual bedding plants prefer to be in a sunny location. Prepare the planting beds several weeks before planting. First, remove any weeds or other unwanted plants from the bed. Next, turn the soil to a depth of about eight inches. Spread a twoto four-inch layer of compost, rotted leaves, aged manure, composted and then evenly sprinkle a light application of an all purpose fertilizer. Thor oughly blend the organic matter and fertilizer into the bed, rake smooth and youre ready to plant. Gardeners are accustomed to (and even demand) that bedding plants be in bloom when they are purchased. Some cool season bedding plants, however, will provide far superior results if they are purchased when young and before the colorful display begins. Bedding plants are typically planted to make a dramatic statement. To accomplish that, place multiple plants of the same kind in a bed. Bedding plants in better when the rows are stag gered. properly. The second row is laid behind from it, but the plants are placed between form triangles with those plants. Flower beds of colorful bedding plants add a lot to the landscape but require a fair amount of maintenance to stay looking their best. Keeping beds well weeded is critical. A two-inch layer of mulch will help considerably in keeping weeds from growing, and using preemergence herbicides (weed preventers) may help in some situations. However, always plan on having to do some hand weeding. For more information on Gardening with Annuals in Florida, view the online publication at www.edis.

Diabetes affects nearly 26 million Americans and an estimated 79 mil lion people are risk for developing the disease. In Florida, diabetes affects more than 1.3 million people. During National Diabetes Month, The Medical Center of Blountstown will provide information such as educational materials to help people make a plan to prevent diabetes and its complications. Even if you know what to do to improve your health, daily routine can be a big challenge, said Dr. nurse, Sam Dalton at The Medical Center of Blountstown. Thats why its important to set goals and make a plan to prevent diabetes and its complications. Even small changes such as losing a small amount of weight and becom ing more active can go a long way in preventing Type 2 diabetes, as well as managing the disease. Being physically active can help in the management of diabetes because it helps burn more calories and can help a person maintain a healthy weight. For people at high risk for devel oping Type 2 diabetes, losing ten pounds if you weigh 200 pounds can make a big difference in lowering your risk, added Dalton. Making changes in how you care for your health is a matter of trying and learning. Its all about choosing a goal and working toward it. Making a plan reach your goal. Think about what is important to your health. What are you willing and able to do? Decide what your goals are. What changes do you want to make?

by Susan Blake, U.S. Forest ServiceIf youre from a single parent household like me, your parent is not always there to give you direction. Some are busy working all the time just to pay the bills. Thats the reality. The military gives you, direction, opportunity and discipline, said U.S. Navy Veteran Jeff Fillion of the U.S. Forest Service. Born in Michigan, Jeff Fillion grew up in a working class family. At the time, he certainly didnt have any expectation that he would eventually be working for the National Forests in Florida as their Land Surveyor and Boundary Manager. In high school he went to vocational training to learn collision repair. By his senior year Fillion found himself working in a collision shop 30 hours a week. The collision shop just didnt pan out so well; working a lot but not really going anywhere . I didnt have any direction or mentorship. So thats what prompted me to join the military, recalls Fillion. After completing his initial processing for the U.S. Navy, Fillion served aboard the and repairing mechanical piping systems. Fillion recalls as a 22-year-old second 80 people during naval operations as conditions warranted. In the civilian world you just dont get that kind of opportunity early in your career, said Fillion. They think youre just a young kid. The military gives you a lot of responsibility very quickly and people respect that. While Fillion traveled all over the world and enjoyed his adventures with the Navy, eventually he decided it was time to settle down and chart a new course for his life. With the GI Bill in hand, Fillion decided to go back to school entering junior college and then transferring to the University of Florida in Gainesville. Eventually, Fillion ended up majoring in Geomatics, a discipline that incorporates traditional techniques of land surveying along with many other disciplines of spatial data management. After graduating from the College of Engineering at the University of Florida in 2000, Fillion landed a surveying job in the private sector. It looked like his career was on track until the housing bubble burst. After almost 13 years surveying Fillion found himself without a job in 2008. Things were going good and then everything just crashed and burned, recalls Fillion. It was only one year later in 2009 that Fillion landed his position with the U.S. Forest Service as Land Surveyor and Boundary Manager. Since then he has tried to be at the top of his game in every aspect Today, Fillion stands on the cutting edge of surveying technology with his surveyor grade GPS system acquired by the Nationenormous. The surveyor grade equipment includes unit correcting GPS data from cell towers and a dedicated web data service for real-time accuracy. When it comes to monumentation and boundaries, feet are not acceptable. You have to be within a few 100ths of a foot, said Fillion. The icing on the cake is Fillions GIS pole. A GPS receiver can be mounted on the GIS pole, connected via Bluetooth, eliminating the need to carry around individual components such as a Total Station used for measur ing angles and distances, tripod legs, prism pole, and bipod. You got your boots, safety helmet, snake chaps and machete walking through the swamp. You can only carry so much safely, said Fillion. Often property monuments or boundary line markers cannot be located in thick vegetation with canopies of overgrowth blocking GPS signals. With his GIS pole, Fillion can stand in a clearing, target objects in severe overgrowth, measure angle and distance and pinpoint a coordinate without even getting his shoes dirty. In addition, the surveyor grade GPS and GIS pole eliminate traditional surveying techniques such as prolonged repetitive steps that require traversing or cutting through heavy woodland areas measuring angles and distances to establish landlines. Traversing a mile in the woods could literally take you days to pinpoint coor dinates. With GPS I just collect the data points and Im done in couple of hours, according to Fillion. Establishing and maintaining the National Forests in Florida boundaries is a daunting task. The National Forests in Florida has about 1,200 miles of landlines to date with further growth in the future. Landlines can be obscured by vegetation and over time paint can degrade until the original markings are lost and the area must be surveyed again. Once a landline is gone, its very expensive to have it resurveyed, according to Fillion. If you had to contract surveying landlines it could cost up to $10,000 a mile to have that boundary survey put in place. Two miles and youve paid for this equipment. This new equipment is accurate and vice are huge, said Fillion. Fillion also serves as the Veterans Special Emphasis Program Manager, organizing the Forest Service participation in the 2011 Veterans Day Parade here in Tallahassee.

It was also noted that a Liberty County Jail employee expressed concern about Strawn constantly taking the woman out of the facility. While she was supposed to be a Gadsden Corrections inmate, Strawn dropped her off at the Liberty County Jail for almost two weeks without proper authorization. The staff did not inquire why she was there. The suit charges that Sheriff Tatum had prior knowledge that Strawn posed a risk of harm to female inmates but failed to take reasonable steps. Randolph charges with his client was sexually assaulted, imprisoned under torturous and inhumane conditions and suffered extreme emotional, mental and psychological injury. A video of Strawn bargaining with a woman to give her incarcerated husband special treatment if she would have sex with him surfaced in April of 2008 and set off an investigation into his activities. Sheriff Tatum immediately fired Strawn.

When Mr. Pot went to South Carolina to hunt, he always invited my dad to go with him. Shuler told the family what a wonderful trip they had. He said they laughed and cut up like two teenage girls, Lollie said. They didnt even turn on the radio during the six hour drive. Even though her father was in good health despite some age-related joint pain, I think it was my dads time and thats the way God chose to take him quick and painlessly, Lollie said. I have no doubt it was just the way things were meant to be. C.L. Capps began his well-drilling business in 1974 and continued operating it until he sold it around 1996, his daughter said. Over the years, hes drilled hundreds of wells, not just in Calhoun County but in many surrounding counties as well, Lollie said. Since retiring, he began his mornings with a 5 a.m. visit to Connies Kitchen in Blountstown to drink coffee and talk with friends. Between conversations about hunting and politics, They solved all the worlds problems right there at the table, his daughter said. After breakfast, he would come home and work in the shed behind his home. He was always there, beating and banging on something, said Lollie, who lived next door. He was a constant piddler and he always had some kind of project going on. She said he and Shuler had planned to make their trip a few weeks earlier but postponed it when they learned Capps 44-year-old son was in the Capps Jr. died Oct. 13. The back-to-back deaths have been devastating for her mother, Hazel, said Lollie. The pair would have marked their 55th anniversary next February. They were an old school couple, their daughter said. She worked in the home; he worked outside the home.

In a two-sentence email to Michael L. Sentman, Assistant Deputy Secretary for Health, Charbonneau informed him of his resignation and added, I did my best. Charbonneau has served as the head of both the Calhoun County and Liberty County Health Health Department business manager Kelly King was appointed acting administrator following last weeks resignation. King explained that the state requires each health department to maintain a certain budget to cash ratio and in the case of Liberty County, it for the end of October is expected to maintain at monthly. The resignation leaves the two-county area short one physician but King said both health departments expect to maintain their current level of care. At present, Dr. Jerry Boland is at the Calhoun Joti Keshav sees patients at the Liberty County Health Department once a week. We have four nurse practitioners who see our patients, said King. The community will still be receiving health care services. We have Health Dept. Director quitsby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA Bristol woman who worked as a licensed practical nurse with the Liberty County Health Department for approximately six years has been charged with four counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud. May 26 by Health Department Director Dr. Gene Charbonneau. According to a probable cause affidavit, the Department of Health reported that Lewis had presented fraudulent prescriptions for Adderall, a Schedule 2 controlled substance, on at least four different occasions between Feb. 8 and May 12 at a Marianna pharmacy. Lewis gave a statement at the Jackson County Sheriffs Office in Marianna recently in which she admitted to forging Charbonneaus name on prescription slips. She was not taken into custody, according to Assistant State Attorney Shad Redmon. She will get a notice to appear for a December arraignment date in Jackson County, he said At that point, we will offer her the opportunity to enter a pretrial intervention program based on her cooperation and admission that she did it. He said it was a one year program with random drug tests which would require her to check in monthly as well as undergo drug evaluation and counseling. and write letters of apology to Charbonneau and the pharmacist. Redmon said that the charges will be dismissed at the end of the one year period if she completes the program without any violations. He said she did not have any prior arrests. If she does what shes supposed to do, she will have the opportunity to get her record expunged, Redmon said.Nurse charged with forging prescriptionsEx-inmate suit against deputy and two sheriffsby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA former jail inmate has filed a federal lawsuit against ex-Calhoun County Transportation Deputy William Strawn, Calhoun County Sheriff David Tatum and retired Liberty County Sheriff Harrell Wood Revell claiming she was the victim of repeated criminal sexual assaults while in their custody. The woman, who is represented by attorney Roosevelt Randolph of damages as well as attorneys fees and costs. The plaintiff alleges she was raped several times by Strawn in 2007. According to the lawsuit, Strawn would check her out from the womens dorm at the Liberty County Jail to drive her to court appearances and medical appointments. After leaving the jail, Strawn would take a detour to a secluded area, remove her from the patrol car, pull her pants down and have sex with her. He kept her handcuffed and shackled during the act and did not wear a condom, according to the lawsuit.See FEDERAL LAWSUIT continued on page 21 See DIRECTOR QUITS continued on page 21 50includes tax THE CalALHouOUN-LIbBERt TY J OURNRNAL Volume 31, NNumber 45 Wednesday, N N ov. 9, 2011 CLJ News.com Blountstown man killed by stray buckshot pellet on hunting tripby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA single buckshot pellet that entered his abdomen and severed two arteries claimed the life of 74-year-old C.L. Capps during a hunting trip Friday, according to South Carolina coroner Martin Sauls. It was a freak accident, Sauls said, noting that the gun was well over 100 yards away. The fact that he was hit by the buckshot was incredible, he said, explaining, Shotguns are not long range weapons. Capps daughter, Cindy Lollie, said it heart attack because there was no visible blood. When EMTs arrived, they found what Lollie called one speck under his arm on the left side of his rib cage where the pellet went in. The coroner said the buckshot severed the left renal artery and the abdominal aorta, causing internal bleeding. Capps was dog hunting with his lifelong friend, Pot Shuler, on an isolated area known as the Purrysburg section of Jasper County, South Carolina on Nov. 4 between 5:30 and 6 p.m. It was right before the time change, so it was still daylight, said Lt. Robert McCullough of the South Carolina Dept. of Natural Resources (SCDNR). They were running dogs, said Lollie. My dad had already killed two deer that morning. She said her father saw a deer coming their way and alerted his longtime hunting companion, saying: James! Big buck! James! Big buck! Capps was about 150 yards from Shuler, she said. She said the deer did not run between them. Mr. Pot made a straight shot and killed the deer. My dad was at a 30 degree angle to the right, explained Lollie. That stray buckshot just kind of peeled off to the right, she said. Its just unheard of for a shotgun pellet to carry that distance. The investigation is still ongoing, according to SCDNR Lt. Gentry Phames. No charges are expected. It was an unfortunate situation. We know both parties have been friends for years, Phames said. Capps body was returned to Blountstown late Monday following an autopsy on Sunday. Shuler was devastated by her fathers death, Lollie said. I just told him, we love you just like we always have and well get through this. She said the two men have been friends most of their lives and have taken this same hunting trip half a dozen times.

(850) 222-7199 Tell em you saw it in The Calhoun-Liberty Journal & CLJNews.comGainesville man charged with DUI with property damage after wreck at Blountstown motel A 74-year-old Gainesville man was charged with DUI with property damage after he wrecked his vehicle, knocked his boat off the trailer he was towing and sent water spewing after breaking a water main on the east side of the Airport Motel on SR 20 East in Blountstown around 5 p.m. Thursday. The driver, identified as Roger Brenton Taylor, told FHP Trooper Wes Harsey he was trying to back into the parking space in front of his room at the motel. He said he didnt know how his 2008 Hyundai SUV, boat trailer and boat ended up on the grass next to the motel. There was extensive damage to the left side of the SUV and the boat trailer. While speaking with Taylor the trooper noted the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage and saw an open bottle of vodka in the rear hatch of the SUV. The bottle was three-quarters empty. Taylor acknowledged having a couple of mixed drinks and something else while at the Pine Creek boat ramp in Wakulla County earlier that afternoon. Harsey determined that Taylor was intoxicated and accelerated out of control while backing up, causing the boat and trailer to jackknife into the left side of his vehicle. His SUV continued southwest from the parking lot into the grass, traveling over a water faucet and six-inch high tree stump before ejecting the Gheenoe canoe from the boat trailer. Breath samples taken nearly two hours later to determine his level of intoxication resulted in readings of .136 and .145. The legal limit is .08. In addition to the DUI, Taylor was also cited for careless driving and possession of an open container of alcohol. RogerOGER Taylor AYLORBristol man arrested for holding gun on 3 people at apartmentWendell Moore, 20, of Bristol was charged with two counts of aggravated assault Saturday night at Sutton Creek Apartments in Blountstown. According to a report from the Blountstown Police Department, Moore sent numerous text messages and made repeated calls to his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Kristal McDaniel, 19. When she answered the phone, he told her he was at her front door and would shoot it down if he had to. McDaniel did not respond, nor did she go outside. When McDaniel later went out onto her front porch to smoke a cigarette, she found that Moore was waiting for her. He began yelling and then grabbed her, attempted to choke her and slammed her against the apartment door. Two friends inside McDaniels apartment heard the disturbance, opened the door and yanked McDaniel inside. Moore ran off but returned later with a small black gun. At some point, McDaniel opened her door to check on her two friends and was met by Moore, who pointed the gun in her face and then turned it on her friends. McDaniel and one of the men ran inside her apartment; the second man went to another apartment. A next door neighbor who heard the disturbance came out, saw Moore pointing the gun and made him leave. McDaniel gave a statement at the police department in which she explained that she and Moore had an offand-on relationship and that Moore was aware that she is three months pregnant.

NOVEMBER 9, 2011 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Cain misrepresented COMMENTARYWASHINGTON Herman Cain makes much of the fact that hes not a politician, touting inexperience as a virtue in his campaign for president. Speaking at the National Press Club recently, he noted that when he took over the helm of Godfathers Pizza, at the time a failing restaurant chain, that he had never made a pizza. He learned the business by talking to those closest to the problem, from customers to suppliers, to determine where the company had lost focus. But much, much more was made of another aspect of his Press Club Appearance. He is asking voters to trust him to apply the same leadership principle to the federal government, an appealing if simplistic notion that is being tested by Cains response to the broad outline of the allegations against Cain are familiar. Two women were reported to have brought sexual harassment charges against Cain when he headed the National Restaurant Association in the mid-1990s, a time when the subject of sexual harassment had gained new currency in the workplace in the aftermath of allegations brought by Anita Hill against Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. When Cain arrived at the National Press Club, he faced a media scrum with cameras lining the back wall and reporters determined to pin him down on the facts as they were rapidly evolving. Cain started the day saying he knew nothing about any settlement that the Restaurant Association might have made on his behalf, but by the time he addressed the Press Club luncheon audience, he jokingly said he hoped the settlement wasnt for too much money because I didnt do anything. He said he welcomed the chance to clear the air, and after he concluded his formal remarks, patiently took questions for several minutes as the president of the press club pressed him for answers. He called the charges baseless, said he didnt know the source of the witch hunt, attributing it to his rise in the polls and what he called the growing target on his back. Cain leads national polls among the Republican candidates, other surprise since Romney is barely contesting Iowa after having done dismally there four years ago. At the end of the Q and A session, Associated Press broadfor the Press Club like he did at a media event in Omaha with his much viewed ode to pizza to the tune of John Lennons Imagine. Cain demurred, saying it was hard enough to speak a dozen times a day without also having to sing, but then he relented. Explaining that his faith is a big part of his life, he came to the microphone and sang the hymn, Amazing Grace. He has a good voice, and the audience was charmed. It should be pointed out that very few reporters, if any, were seated in the ballroom. Judging by the applause, supporters of the Cain campaign were well represented along with public-relations professionals, media consultants and special interest lobbyists of all kinds. Working media for the most part had separate seating and were furiously scribbling notes or tapping away on their laptops. A reporter at a press table in the balcony said Cains singing easily made the top ten of the oddest political events hed attended. Odd, yes, but as the video clip made the rounds on YouTube, it fed the impression that Cain had simply broken into song as a way to avoid questions he didnt want to answer. While its true that Cain mishandled the revelations about his is consistency, his willingness to sing when asked is not part of the problem, but a window into the authenticity that voters

Liberty Post & Barn PoleInc.Phone (850) 643-5995To the editor, On Oct. 28 I saw a Calhoun County dump truck traveling south on Myers Dairy Road, crossing Bullhead Bay Road. I knew that the property to the south of Bullhead Bay Road was privately owned. I followed that Calhoun County equipment (two excavators and many dump trucks) that was being used to widen an existing two trail road. There are zero houses on Myers Dairy Road south of Bullhead Bay Road nor are there any on Pole Road, the two roads being widened. The two roads have also have lime rock spread and packed at an early date. A call was placed to the Clerk of the Court in Calhoun County and her comment was that the road work was OK because it was federal grant money that had been obtained by Sonny OBryan. I am one of many in this area that depend on federal money (Social Security) and have not had a cost of living increase in two years and have reason to believe AARP that Social Nov. 20. We also have many roads in this county that need lime rock, paving or repairing.

If anyone feels as I do about this or needs more information please feel free to call me at 674-8010. Charles D. Smith, Blountstown To the editor, between hunters and black bears have begun. Some of you may not know but in 2011 the black bear in Florida was removed from the endangered/threatened list by experts associated with the FWC (Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission). This does not mean that there is now a season for hunting bears, it just means that we are one step closer to regaining the privilege that was taken from sportsmen and women in Florida. If you take the time to look on any website about bears in Florida you will see that the population of bears for the past 10 years is still listed around 3,000 to 3,500. If you spend any time around Carrabelle, Sumatra, Eastpoint or Telogia you would think that all 3,500 are within their city limits. The time is now for the sportsmen and women to address this with the FWC. The FWC will present the new authored Bear Management Liberty County. I, as a member of the Florida Bear Management team, invite everyone to meet the FWC be held at Veterans Memorial Civic Center in Bristol on Nov. 22 at 6 p.m. (ET). If you are concerned with the increasing population of bears, please attend this meeting.

What went wrong? B. V., Somerset, Ky.Your plants were probably infested with blackheart, a disease caused by a calcium deare young. Have your soils pH level tested. If the result is 6.0 or lower, this is the likely culprit. Add lime to increase the pH. If you think that you already have enough calcium, weather conditions may have prevented the celery from absorbing it. Extreme heat, extremes of wet and then dry soil conditions, or high salt in your soil also may cause the condition.Playing tennis this summer, my partner chided me for luring bad luck because I served while I held three balls. Have you ever heard of that? P. P., Silver Spring, Md. Sporty superstitions are a dime a dozen, and thats a common one. Few people, except possibly card players, take their superstitions as seriously as do sports players and fans. Here are just a few examples: If you play ice hockey, dont let sticks lie crossed on the ice. Fishermen spit on their bait and baseball players spit on their hands. Basketball players wipe the soles of their sneaker, while bowlers carry good luck charms. Whatever the sport, but especially in football, players often touch their goal for good luck before the match begins. Any athlete may consider certain items of clothing or jewelry to be a good or bad luck charm. As with any amulet, talisman, gem, or mascot, the athletic charm is considered protection against a the item is often bestowed because it was carried or worn when the player had a particularly auspicious outcome, although sometimes the belief comes from a negative outcome during the one game when the item wasnt on hand. It may be a hat, a ring, a piece of sports equipment such as the baseball glove, or virtually anything that can be carried into the arena. Whether it is a lucky glove or not, however, no baseball glove should point to your own teams dugout. Likewise, the baseball bat should never lie crosswise in front of your own dugout.This year, for the first time, we had wild iris growing in a swampy area near our house. Were miles from the nearest neighbor and I havent seen the irises growing anywhere else nearby. How did they get there? H. M., Glenwood, Minn. Unlike the garden variety of irises (family Iridaceae), wild irises like moist, swampy places and can withstand having their feet wet for some period of time. Chances are that your swampy area is part of a watershed area or runoff zone, and the rhizomes (those bulby rootstocks) or the seeds of the irises may have made their way downstream until they reached your property and dug in. Irises are self-seeding, so once a single plant got a foothold, others would soon follow. Seeds travel in all sorts of mysterious ways. Since irises can be propagated from either the seeds or the rhizomes, its also possible that some seeds were transported with a little help from a feathered friend or even through the excrement of an animal (moose, deer) that may have eaten the relished iris tubers for dinner, then traveled to your backyard before depositing his droppings. Many seeds have protective coatings that make them resistant to the digestive juices of the birds and animals that may eat them. It is said that Charles Darwin once planted an entire acre in seeds that he scavenged from the feet of migratory birds. Just as squirrels and chipmunks inadvertently plant many oak trees by forgetting where they buried their nuts, so too do other species help to distribute natures bounty.

Page 16 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 9, 2011Decreasing day length is a signal to start preparing for winter. Soon, deciduous shrubs will drop their leaves and the landscape will appear stark and less impressive. To keep the gloomy days of winter at bay, add cool season bedding plants to the landscape. Bedding plants are those that are commonly used in resi dential and commercial landscapes to provide color and interest. No other group of plants can so quickly and economically create a colorful landscape. Most bedding plants are annuals. These short-lived plants grow from seed, bloom and die within one growing season. The transient nature of annuals means that at the end of their season when they are no longer attractive, annuals are removed and replaced with new plantings. based on the temperatures they prefer. Cool season bedding plants do best in the cold to mild temperatures of October through early May and generally tolerate typical winter freezes without protection. According to a University of Florida/IFAS publication, bedding plants that can be added to the North Florida landscape now include alyssum, babys breath, calendula, carnation, dianthus, dusty miller, foxglove, hollyhock, ornamental cabbage and kale, pansy, petunia, snapdragons and violas. Most annual bedding plants prefer to be in a sunny location. Prepare the planting beds several weeks before planting. First, remove any weeds or other unwanted plants from the bed. Next, turn the soil to a depth of about eight inches. Spread a twoto four-inch layer of compost, rotted leaves, aged manure, composted and then evenly sprinkle a light application of an all purpose fertilizer. Thor oughly blend the organic matter and fertilizer into the bed, rake smooth and youre ready to plant. Gardeners are accustomed to (and even demand) that bedding plants be in bloom when they are purchased. Some cool season bedding plants, however, will provide far superior results if they are purchased when young and before the colorful display begins. Bedding plants are typically planted to make a dramatic statement. To accomplish that, place multiple plants of the same kind in a bed. Bedding plants in better when the rows are stag gered. properly. The second row is laid behind from it, but the plants are placed between form triangles with those plants. Flower beds of colorful bedding plants add a lot to the landscape but require a fair amount of maintenance to stay looking their best. Keeping beds well weeded is critical. A two-inch layer of mulch will help considerably in keeping weeds from growing, and using preemergence herbicides (weed preventers) may help in some situations. However, always plan on having to do some hand weeding. For more information on Gardening with Annuals in Florida, view the online publication at www.edis.

Diabetes affects nearly 26 million Americans and an estimated 79 million people are risk for developing the disease. In Florida, diabetes affects more than 1.3 million people. During National Diabetes Month, The Medical Center of Blountstown will provide information such as educational materials to help people make a plan to prevent diabetes and its complications. Even if you know what to do to improve your health, daily routine can be a big challenge, said Dr. nurse, Sam Dalton at The Medical Center of Blountstown. Thats why its important to set goals and make a plan to prevent diabetes and its complications. Even small changes such as losing a small amount of weight and becoming more active can go a long way in preventing Type 2 diabetes, as well as managing the disease. Being physically active can help in the management of diabetes because it helps burn more calories and can help a person maintain a healthy weight. For people at high risk for developing Type 2 diabetes, losing ten pounds if you weigh 200 pounds can make a big difference in lowering your risk, added Dalton. Making changes in how you care for your health is a matter of trying and learning. Its all about choosing a goal and working toward it. Making a plan reach your goal. Think about what is important to your health. What are you willing and able to do? Decide what your goals are. What changes do you want to make? Choose Decide what steps will help you reach your goal. Pick one step to try this week.

by Susan Blake, U.S. Forest ServiceIf youre from a single parent household like me, your parent is not always there to give you direction. Some are busy working all the time just to pay the bills. Thats the reality. The military gives you, direction, opportunity and discipline, said U.S. Navy Veteran Jeff Fillion of the U.S. Forest Service. Born in Michigan, Jeff Fillion grew up in a working class family. At the time, he certainly didnt have any expectation that he would eventually be working for the National Forests in Florida as their Land Surveyor and Boundary Manager. In high school he went to vocational training to learn collision repair. By his senior year Fillion found himself working in a collision shop 30 hours a week. The collision shop just didnt pan out so well; working a lot but not really going anywhere . I didnt have any direction or mentorship. So thats what prompted me to join the military, recalls Fillion. After completing his initial processing for the U.S. Navy, Fillion served aboard the and repairing mechanical piping systems. Fillion recalls as a 22-year-old second 80 people during naval operations as conditions warranted. In the civilian world you just dont get that kind of opportunity early in your career, said Fillion. They think youre just a young kid. The military gives you a lot of responsibility very quickly and people respect that. While Fillion traveled all over the world and enjoyed his adventures with the Navy, eventually he decided it was time to settle down and chart a new course for his life. With the GI Bill in hand, Fillion decided to go back to school entering junior college and then transferring to the University of Florida in Gainesville. Eventually, Fillion ended up majoring in Geomatics, a discipline that incorporates traditional techniques of land surveying along with many other disciplines of spatial data management. After graduating from the College of Engineering at the University of Florida in 2000, Fillion landed a surveying job in the private sector. It looked like his career was on track until the housing bubble burst. After almost 13 years surveying Fillion found himself without a job in 2008. Things were going good and then everything just crashed and burned, recalls Fillion. It was only one year later in 2009 that Fillion landed his position with the U.S. Forest Service as Land Surveyor and Boundary Manager. Since then he has tried to be at the top of his game in every aspect Today, Fillion stands on the cutting edge of surveying technology with his surveyor grade GPS system acquired by the Nationenormous. The surveyor grade equipment includes unit correcting GPS data from cell towers and a dedicated web data service for real-time accuracy. When it comes to monumentation and boundaries, feet are not acceptable. You have to be within a few 100ths of a foot, said Fillion. The icing on the cake is Fillions GIS pole. A GPS receiver can be mounted on the GIS pole, connected via Bluetooth, eliminating the need to carry around individual components such as a Total Station used for measuring angles and distances, tripod legs, prism pole, and bipod. You got your boots, safety helmet, snake chaps and machete walking through the swamp. You can only carry so much safely, said Fillion. Often property monuments or boundary line markers cannot be located in thick vegetation with canopies of overgrowth blocking GPS signals. With his GIS pole, Fillion can stand in a clearing, target objects in severe overgrowth, measure angle and distance and pinpoint a coordinate without even getting his shoes dirty. In addition, the surveyor grade GPS and GIS pole eliminate traditional surveying techniques such as prolonged repetitive steps that require traversing or cutting through heavy woodland areas measuring angles and distances to establish landlines. Traversing a mile in the woods could literally take you days to pinpoint coordinates. With GPS I just collect the data points and Im done in couple of hours, according to Fillion. Establishing and maintaining the National Forests in Florida boundaries is a daunting task. The National Forests in Florida has about 1,200 miles of landlines to date with further growth in the future. Landlines can be obscured by vegetation and over time paint can degrade until the original markings are lost and the area must be surveyed again. Once a landline is gone, its very expensive to have it resurveyed, according to Fillion. If you had to contract surveying landlines it could cost up to $10,000 a mile to have that boundary survey put in place. Two miles and youve paid for this equipment. This new equipment is accurate and vice are huge, said Fillion. Fillion also serves as the Veterans Special Emphasis Program Manager, organizing the Forest Service participation in the 2011 Veterans Day Parade here in Tallahassee.

It was also noted that a Liberty County Jail employee expressed concern about Strawn constantly taking the woman out of the facility. While she was supposed to be a Gadsden Corrections inmate, Strawn dropped her off at the Liberty County Jail for almost two weeks without proper authorization. The staff did not inquire why she was there. The suit charges that Sheriff Tatum had prior knowledge that Strawn posed a risk of harm to female inmates but failed to take reasonable steps. Randolph charges with his client was sexually assaulted, imprisoned under torturous and inhumane conditions and suffered extreme emotional, mental and psychological injury. A video of Strawn bargaining with a woman to give her incarcerated husband special treatment if she would have sex with him surfaced in April of 2008 and set off an investigation into his activities. Sheriff Tatum immediately fired Strawn. Strawn later pleaded no contest to two counts of sexual misconduct and FEEDERERAL LAWSUIT continued from the front page a great management team and will all work together.

When Mr. Pot went to South Carolina to hunt, he always invited my dad to go with him. Shuler told the family what a wonderful trip they had. He said they laughed and cut up like two teenage girls, Lollie said. They didnt even turn on the radio during the six hour drive. Even though her father was in good health despite some age-related joint pain, I think it was my dads time and thats the way God chose to take him quick and painlessly, Lollie said. I have no doubt it was just the way things were meant to be. C.L. Capps began his well-drilling business in 1974 and continued operating it until he sold it around 1996, his daughter said. Over the years, hes drilled hundreds of wells, not just in Calhoun County but in many surrounding counties as well, Lollie said. Since retiring, he began his mornings with a 5 a.m. visit to Connies Kitchen in Blountstown to drink coffee and talk with friends. Between conversations about hunting and politics, They solved all the worlds problems right there at the table, his daughter said. After breakfast, he would come home and work in the shed behind his home. He was always there, beating and banging on something, said Lollie, who lived next door. He was a constant piddler and he always had some kind of project going on.
