Kristopher Bailey was arrested Nov. 7 after investigators received a tip that he was making meth at the residence where he had been living for the past two months with his girlfriend. Sgt. Todd Wheetley and Sgt. Brian Bateman examined a shed located south of the home when they searched the property on Oct. 31. Two reaction vessels used to make meth which contained remnants of pseudoephedrine, lye and lithium were found outside, along with a homemade funnel and chemical-soaked paper towels. In the arrest report, Wheetley noted that it appeared there had been two explosions outside the shed, which is a dangerous side-effect of the meth-making process. When they looked inside the shed, the investigators found several strips of tin foil with burnt methamphetamine residue, plastic tubing with residue, a plate with residue methamphetamine and a lithium battery. In another shed on the property, a mason jar with white residue was found. A confidential source working with the sheriffs went out to the shed on a daily basis for at least an hour. He was reportedly the only person who used the shed on the south side of the home. The source said Bailey who smelled of chemicals and would go several days at a time without sleep had talked about how two bottles being used to make meth had blown up. The source had caught Bailey cooking methamphetamine a couple of times and asked him not to bring any of the dangerous drug into the house. Bailey reportedly ignored the request and brought with his knife. While looking into Baileys history, investigators began tracking his purchases Meth lab found in shed near CR 379 residence KRIST OPHER BAILEY Homecoming at BHS 50includes tax THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY J OURNAL Volume 31, Number 45 Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011 CLJ News.comby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA Hosford woman involved in a collision at the intersection of SR 20 and SR 65 Monday morning died of her injuries at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Bernadine Marie Finuff, 84. She was transported from the scene by Life Flight Air Ambulance and taken to Tallahassee with critical injuries which later resulted in her death. Robert Charles of Carrabelle stopped to offer help at the scene and climbed into Finuffs car through the back window in an attempt to stabilize her before the ambulance arrived. The Florida Highway Patrol report gave the following account of the wreck: Finuff was northbound on SR 65 at 10:30 a.m. when she came to the intersection with SR 20 and stopped at the stop sign. Then, for reasons unknown, she drove north through the intersection and into the path of an eastbound 1997 Ford F-150 driven by 82-year-old Louie Andrew Sutton of Bristol. The front of Suttons truck hit the left side of Finuffs 1994 Chevrolet Sebring. The impact pushed the car eastward as it spun around counter-clockwise. The car came to rest facing west on the northeast corner of SR 20 and SR 65. The truck came to a stop in the parking lot of the Chevron Station nearby. Sutton was said to have sustained minor injuries. He was taken to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital in Blountstown. Both drivers were wearing seatbelts. The collision is being investigated by FHP Trooper Michael Simmons and homicide investigator Cpl. T.M. Chukes.The car was totaled. Damages to the truck were estimated at $5,000.

According to the arrest report, the manager at the site got a phone call telling him that Barnhart was inflating the weight and type of items being brought in. The manager then reviewed video of Barnhart at work and compared the tickets he wrote to show how much should be paid out. brought in an alternator, a radiator and some miscellaneous metal and aluminum. The ticket listed that he also sold an aluminum wheel and 50 pounds of copper. Those items were not seen on the video of Barnhart weighing the other property. Barnhart wrote up a ticket indicating that items valued at $196.41 were taken in. 4:45 p.m. and met with Barnhart. Although the video showed he only had a bundle of extension cords, the ticket Barnhart wrote indicated he had turned in 40 pounds of #1 copper wire and 70 pounds of #2 copper wire. Barnhart wrote Monroe a second ticket, this one for $167.80. identified as George Williams, came in empty-handed and was seen on the video meeting with Barnhart, who wrote him a ticket falsely indicating that he had brought in a 26-pound sealed unit and 50 pounds of copper. The video showed that nothing was actually put on the scales to be weighed. Barnhart gave him a receipt showing he brought in items worth $130.10. When he was confronted, Barnhart denied the theft.

Amy Callie-Marie Weathers, 29, was charged with aggravated assault after Charles Clemons, 34, reported that she tried to run over him. Weathers told deputies from the Calhoun County Sheriffs Office that Clemons was upset over her talking to another man. She said he then took $200 of her money and her phone. She said that as she was attempting to leave her Clemons Road residence, he jumped on the hood of her car and kicked in the windshield. He then got in his car and drove off and she went to a neighbors home to call the sheriffs office, she said. When asked to give a sworn statement of the events, Weathers refused and said she would not press charges. Clemons also contacted deputies and gave a different account of the altercation that left him with cuts on his right arm and hand. H e said he attempted to get Weathers inside after she fell asleep in his truck, explaining that she had taken some pills earlier. As he was helping her inside, he said she became belligerent and tried to leave. When she got into her vehicle and tried to drive off, Clemons told her to stay or their relationship would end. At that point, he said she tried to run over him with her vehicle but he managed to step aside in time. He said she backed up and drove toward him a second time. H e said he escaped by climbing onto a porch railing, but then fell and landed on the windshield, causing it to break and cut his right arm and hand in several places. He said she backed up, he got off the hood and she then drove away. Clemons went to a relatives house to call the sheriffs office. H e allowed deputies to search him and found that he had only $11 on him, not the $200 that Weathers had claimed he had taken. He gave a sworn statement and his injuries were photographed. Weathers was charged with aggravated assault. I n the arrest report, deputies noted that tire tracks and spin marks in the yard were consistent with the statement given by Clemons. Weathers remains in custody. H er bond has been set at $25,000. AMY WEATHERSWoman charged with aggravated assault for trying to hit boyfriend with her vehicle

Come see me for all your sales and service needs ERIC LEE (850) 766-8530FWC shares black bear conservation success, looks for feedback on new management planAfter dwindling to as few as 300 bears in the 1970s, the Florida black bear population has rebounded to an estimated 3,000 bears today. Bears and their cubs roam forests and swamps from Eglin Air Force Base in the Panhandle to Ocala National Forest in the states midsection and Big Cypress National Preserve in Southwest Florida. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), which worked with its partners to increase the states black bear population, has released a new draft management plan for the bear and is asking for public input. Both a summary of public feedback and the draft plan will go before the Commission at its February 2012 meeting. The Florida black bear is truly a conservation success story. Bear from broad public support and diligent conservation efforts across Florida, particularly in those communities where black bears have become more common, said FWC Executive Director Nick Wiley. We welcome the publics thoughts on how to best continue our bear conservation efforts in the future, as both our human and bear populations expand. The goal of the draft management plan is to maintain sustainable black bear populations in suitable habitats throughout Florida people. It includes measurable objectives regarding bear populations, habitat, citizen education and outreach, and human-bear The Florida black bear currently does not meet the criteria of being at high risk of extinction, based on the FWCs Biological Status Review on the species completed in early 2011. When a bear management plan is approved, the bear will no longer be on the states list of threatened species. A similar process was followed for the bald eagle, which is no longer listed as a state threatened species but is carefully managed through established under an FWC management plan. The FWC is seeking public input on the draft bear management plan. The open process will include four public workshops: Bristol (Nov. 22), Naples (Nov. 29), Deland (Dec. 6), and Gainesville (Dec. 13). Go to MyFWC. com/Bear to access workshop details, read the plan and comment online. The draft bear management plan includes: management units (BMUs) to provide localized bear management and public involvement appropriate to the area, from about 1,000 bears in the Central BMU, which includes Ocala National For est, to about 20 bears in the Big Bend BMU, which includes Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. bear hunting in Florida. A bear hunt is not proposed in the plan. Currently, Florida black bears may not be hunted, harmed or killed, and similar prohibitions would continue under a rule proposed in the plan. munities in areas of high bear on the rise in Florida. In 2010, the FWC received more than 4,000 calls from citizens about bears. In the past 10 years, more than half of those calls were related to bears rummaging through garbage. A Bear Smart Community would involve residents, local governments, businesses and schools in changing peoples behaviors to Peoples involvement in conserving bears is critical, Wiley said. For example, employees at the U.S. Air Forces Hurlburt Field have an active bear education program for base residents and recently acquired hundreds of bear-proof garbage cans. Those efforts dramatically reduced the number of bears wandering into their neighborhoods. Black bears are generally shy and nonaggressive toward humans. But bears can smell food from more than a mile away and so are tempted to leave forests and swamps to dine on garbage and pet food that is left outdoors and unsecured. The diet of Florida black bears is mostly vegetarian, with 15 per cent insects, and 5 percent animal matter. The bears menu includes saw palmetto, acorns, ferns, blackberries, bees, alligator eggs, ar madillo and opossum. Male bears typically weigh between 250 and 400 pounds; females are smaller, weighing 125 to 250 pounds. At birth, a bear cub is about the size of a can of soda and weighs less A Bear Management workshop will be held in Bristol Tuesday, Nov. 22 at Veterans Memorial Civic Center beginning at 6 p.m.than a pound. Conservation of Florida wildlife habitats on both public and privately owned lands helped ensure the rebounding bear population had room to grow. However, expected future loss of large forests is the major long-term challenge to maintaining black bears in a growing state of nearly 19 million people. The adult male black bear rambles over a 60,000-acre range; the females range is 15,000 acres. The more immediate danger to a black bear is crossing the road. Being hit by a car or truck is the major cause of known bear deaths in the state, with 158 bears killed or euthanized after being injured on highways in 2010. The Florida black bear is among the 62 wildlife species that soon will join the list of Florida species, like the bald eagle, already under an FWC management plan. Floridas new threatened species conservation model requires that management plans be created for all species that have been state-listed and intervals. Those management plans give citizens an active role in Floridas efforts to conserve its diverse wildlife for future generations. Suggestions on revising the bear plan will be accepted online through Jan. 10, 2012, at MyFWC.com/ Bear, where more informa tion also is available on the Florida black bear.

It's easy to enter! Just tell us how your habitat provides food, water, cover, and a place to raise young. Teachers, please note that schoolyard habitats are eligible. The winning habitat will be featured on our website and in our newsletter. We will award a prize of an age-suitable gardening book and a commemorative plaque to the winner. All entries must be received by March 31, 2012. There is currently great concern among health care specialists, educators, environmentalists, and parents about the shrinking amount of time todays children spend playing outdoors. It is believed that this is increasing obesity as well as other health being outdoors and causing a sad disconnect with nature among our youngsters. Most authorities believe it is imperative to get kids to leave the computer games indoors and get outside for healthy activities. The Florida Wildlife Federation is committed to Floridas children as well as to Floridas plants and wildlife. We think there is a way to tie them together promoting health for both kids and critters by encouraging youngsters to start and maintain a wildlife habitat. This is an excellent activity for children 12 and under. It gets them outdoors, keeps them active digging and pulling the inevitable weeds, sparks an interest in gardening, teaches them something about identifying both plants and animals in the natural world, and (impor tant to all parents), keeps them from wander ing to places where they might not be safe. For all the above good reasons, Florida Wildlife Federation is announcing the third Kids Wildlife Habitat Contest, where we will award a prize of an excellent gardening book on Earth Day in April, 2012 to the best wildlife habitat. Teachers please note that schoolyard habitats are included as long as they are worked in by the children. The prize book will make an excellent addition to the school library. by National Wildlife Federation, it is not necessary for this contest. Just tell us how this habitat provides water, food, cover, and a place to raise young.

Barron and the Florida State chapter of the Collegiate Veterans Association (CVA) have announced several new initiatives that will help the university in its efforts to become the most veteran-friendly public university in the nation. The initiatives are designed to provide support and services to assist veterans in their transition to college and successful pursuit of a degree. To launch the initiatives, a special Veterans Day screening of Hell and Back Again, directed by Danfung Dennis, made its Southeastern premiere at Ruby Diamond 2011 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prizewinner. With nearly 25 percent of recentlyseparated-from-the-military veterans enrolling in college within two years, the need for support and assistance in the transition from military service to college student is obvious, Barron said. Although FSU is already recognized as a Military Friendly School, we want to do more for our student-veterans, while raising awareness about their educational needs andservice to our country among the student body in general. The new initiatives include: Center, which will reach veterans of all generations. The center will serve as the focal point for all campus veteran resources, academic advising, orientation and transition programming, personal and rehabilitative support services, and State Veterans Center, who will implement the centers mission to recruit veterans who want to transition from military service to college life; support veterans by coordinating services; and promote awareness of Florida States veteran heritage and current issues facing student-veterans. In addition, the director will promote Florida States veteran-friendly initiatives nationally. eran Film Festival to raise awareness of veterans issues and support the establishment of a veterans center. This years screening of Hell and Back Again, center, set the stage for what will become These initiatives are important because nationally veterans are graduating at a lesser rate than nonveterans, said Jared Lyon, president of the CVA and a veteran of the U.S. Navy, where he served on multiple deployments around the globe from 2001 to 2005. As an institution for higher learning, it is our responsibility to ensure that studentveterans have the resources available to them to be successful in their goal of achieving a college degree. Because veterans tend to be older students the average age of a student-veteran at FSU is 27 they have been out of the academic environment for a greater period of time and often struggle with transition and isolation. In addition, some may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder or physical limitations. Florida State is unique among univer sities because of the depth and scope of services it intends to offer, Lyon said. Not only is Florida State going to provide the services needed by studentveterans, the university also is going to try to identify the reasons behind these lower graduation rates while focusing on making the campus a more inviting and welcoming environment for veterans past, present and future, he said. Plans are under way to build a 35,000-square-foot building located on Jefferson Street near the Varsity Way roundabout. The proposal calls for bringing the Florida State Veterans II museum together into one facility that would promote collaboration. In the meantime, the Pearl Tyner House at the Florida State Alumni Association complex on West Tennessee Street will serve as the centers temporary home. It is now open and is available to students from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. A university advisory board recommended establishing a center and hir ing a director to oversee the center and services. Barron appointed the advisory board in spring 2011 after Lyon and several members of the CVA approached him about the need for improved support and services for veterans and their dependents at the university. It was the students, however, who came up with the idea of hosting an veterans issues. Florida State Interfraternity Council President David Ward approached Lyon about developing an event to support student-veterans, and soon the Student Veteran Film Festival was born. We wanted to create an event that was as entertaining as it was educational, Ward said. Our student-veterans contribute so much to our campus community, and its our duty both as citizens and Seminoles to raise funds and awareness for this great cause. We couldn't be happier to help make this landmark event come to life. Working with Frank Patterson, dean of the College of Motion Picture Arts, and Paul Cohen, director of the colleges Torchlight program, the students were able to secure the rights to screen the newly released documentary Hell and Back Again for the inaugural event. When we saw Hell and Back Again at Sundance, where it won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize, we knew then that we needed to bring it to Florida State, Patterson said. foot building located on Jefferson Street near the Varsity Way roundabout in Tallahassee.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 16, 2011Republicans: Anyone but ObamaAnyone but Obama for president is the only common theme in the rhetoric of the Republican candidates vying for the presidency. Otherwise, the Republican debates could be considered a modern day Tower of Babel. Herman God told me to run Cain is the darling of the right-wingers in spite of the allegations that he sexually harassed women. For a political instant in time, Rick No, God told me to run Perry was the dar ling of the right-wingers, but Perry has proven himself to be a mere mortal like the rest of us. He forgets things. Recognizing that Perry isnt the walk on water type that would qualify as the national preacher and savior of Cains coattails in spite of his alleged sexual peccadil los. But, Newt Stop asking me stupid questions Gingrich is rising from the right-wing political dust like a conservative Phoenix. Newt Gingrich knows everything and has all the answers to any subject that might come to the fore. Dont believe it, ask him, and he will respond in the most condescending manner to make the person to whom he is talking feel as low and small as the sole of his shoe. Newt is a self-proclaimed, selfcentered walking set of encyclopedias. Many people divorce, marry, divorcebut Gingrich midst of cancer treatment. That was cold. Gingrich allegedly was two-timing his second wife while calling for President Clintons impeachment for Clintons sexual discretions. As my crusty old Grandmother would say, Pot calling the kettle black. One of the disappoints for me in all this political hoohaa is that social conservatives seem to have abandoned their conservative values. The principle that every sinner should be punished is missing from the Cain and Gingrich dialog. Apparently, social conservatives hate (thats not nice) President Obama so much that they will ignore the allegations against Cain and the fact that Gingrich has a muddied matrimonial history. The U.S. has been at war in the Middle East for a decade, but if Mitt Romney or Newt I know everything Gingrich become president, there is a very the Middle East for another decade or longer. The last presidential debate focused on foreign pol-CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS icy. The International Atomic Energy Agency reports that Iran is building the bomb. Romney and Gingrich both stated that they would employ U.S. military forces against Iran if economic sanctions did not deter nuclear weapons development in the country. It is easy for politicians to say we will go to war when they are pandering for votes, but not so easy to do in practice. at a map. Iran is bounded on the east by Pakistan and Afghanistan. On the north by the land-locked Caspian Sea, and the Stans, such as Turkmenistan and on the west by Iraq. In the south, Iran borders on the Gulf of Oman. Invading from the Gulf of Oman is possible, but not probable unless the invading forces are mountain goats. The terrain rises rapidly becoming a mountain range just a short distance inland from the Gulf of Oman. If a military force can get past the initial hurdle of a mountain range, it is still approximately 2,000 miles of answer? Bomb them, but airpower alone wont win a war. So, if a Republican should win the presidency, par ticularly Romney or Gingrich, then the probability of another decade of war is very real. According to news reports, because of the looming Iranian nuclear threat, Israel is contemplating a pre-emptive strike on Iran. Hopefully, clearer heads will prevail. Michelle waterboard em Bachmann along with Cain and Perry believe that dunking prisoners will result in gaining good intelligence. Waterboarding has been totally discredited as an interrogation technique. Of course, when a politician is pandering, they will also say anything, waterboarding not required. I still think that after each debate, the public should get to vote one of the candidates off the stage and out of the race, but while that will not happen, at least tape a debate and just play it for the next debate and the next With the exception of Romney and Huntsman, the other Republican presidential contenders are a scary group. Their bizarre ideas and beliefs, coupled with their incompetence in economic and foreign policy issues indicated to me that they have no concept of where Amer ica is, or should be, in the global economy. to all foreign policy confrontations while they have their ing. COMMENTARY Late Night LaughsA RECAP OF RECENT OBSER V ATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.If I were Mitt Romney, I wouldnt show up anymore. I would just go to Hawaii and wait it out until the election, drink some caffeine free Diet Coke and watch Herman Cain and Rick Perry self-destruct. JIMMY KIMMELThe Republican presidential candidates held a debate in Michigan. Just what Michigan needs: 12 more people looking for a job. CONAN OBRIENSomeone told Rick Perry today that Obama, as he did, laid a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. And Rick Perry said See, he blanks on names too. BILL MAHERA new poll shows 45 percent of Republicans believe that Mitt Romney will be the nominee, and that rises to 46 percent if you count Rick Perry, who also believes Mitt Romney will be the nominee. JAY LENORick Perry forgets his own talking points, Herman Cain forgets every woman he ever groped, Mitt Romney forgets he used to be for everything he is now against; they dont need debates, they need ginkgo biloba. BILL MAHERA guy named Reggie Love leaving the White House to get a degree at the Wharton School of Business. I guess he realized you cant learn anything about economics in the Obama White House. JAY LENOToday its 61 and foggy, like Rick Perry. But its nice to see a guy running for President whos only groping for words. DA VID LETTERMAN basketball game ever played on an aircraft carrier. Dont confuse that with the NBA. Thats a bunch of guys not playing basketball on a sinking ship. JAY LENODuring the debate, there was an awkward moment when Herman Cain turned to Michele Bachmann and asked her what she was willing to do to get the job. CONAN OBRIENBig news from the Republican debate. It turns out George Bush was actually the smart Texas governor. JIMMY F ALLONIts not a good week for Republican memories. Rick Perry forgot the name of the agency he wanted to cut. Herman Cain forgot there was a harassment settlement. And Ron Paul forgot he has no chance of winning. CRAIG FERGUSONMost analysts agree the big debate winner was Mitt Romney, who stuck closely to his strategy of not being any of the other candidates. JIMMY KIMMELWhats the difference between Lindsay Lohan and Rick Perry? It only takes Lindsay four and a JAY LENOMichele Bachmann says she wont rest until Obamacare is repealed. Or until she kidnaps all 101 Dalmatians. JIMMY KIMMELMitt Romney said he created thousands of jobs at governor of Massachusetts. Rick Perry said he created thousands as governor of Texas. Herman Cain said he tried to create a number of jobs for women but now hes getting attacked for it all of a sudden. JIMMY KIMMEL

Tina and Chip Ward of Blountstown took in Precious after a friends dog had puppies it could not nurse. We never thought we could enjoy a small dog so much until Precious came into our lives, says Tina. They hand fed Precious with a bottle for a month until She now goes to work with Tina and Chip, whether they are painting a house, building a porch, riding the mower or cutting the grass at Granny Lenas. Precious is ready to go as soon as the car keys rattle. She also works as an early alert system anytime a cat or varmit is around, according to Tina. Precious has two playmates at her other grannys, Lavada Adkins, that she enjoys spending time with. Minnie and Bugger are Chihuahuas owned by Stella Hough and Chris. When they come home each afternoon, Precious likes to chase the stray cats out of the yard and play with her favorite toy ball.

Precious will be one year old Dec. 13. Ive decided to try to get greener. Any ideas for everyday small changes? N. S., Tallahassee. There are many habits that we can change if we just allow ourselves to be creative. Remember, recycling is far from a new concept. Did your grandmother throw anything away that could be of use in another form? I doubt it. Here are a few ideas to start with: If you pack a lunch, youll produce less garbage if you put your food into reusable containers instead of disposable ones and keep utensils that you can wash and use repeatedly instead of going through a set of plastic ones every day. Carry your own mug to the coffee stand instead of using their throwaway cup. Cut up old clothing into rags and use these instead of paper towels. You can also choose environmentally safer household cleaning products, such as white vinegar or baking soda. When youre used to chemical cleansers, you alternatives dont do as thorough a job without some effort. If the extra elbow grease isnt for you, start by choosing the alternatives for the easier jobs only. I n the dishwasher, for instance, use regular soaps for the pots and pans but try the greener detergents for everyday dish loads. Try cold water for your washing machine loads (with a cold-water detergent) or use a drying rack or clothesline instead of the dryer. With a few small changes like these, youre well on your way to a life style that is cheaper, more environment. And dont forget the old adage, Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.This past summer, we had ants burrowing up between our patio stones. How can we prevent this from happening again? D. P., Manchester, N.H.There are approximately 8,000 species of ants, and without knowing which species you are dealing with, it is hard to advise you. If you are not sure of the species, you can have a pest control company come out and identify them for you. Or, you can simply scoop up some live ants in a dry medicine bottle or baby food jar and take them to the pest control tion. Depending on the species, ants may eat grease, sweets (both those found in a home and the sweet nectar produced by aphids), or even other insects. Once a colony locates a desired food source, hundreds of workers may descend on the food. To repel ants, try vinegar, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, cream of tartar, salt, or perfume. Just place one of these substances along their path. If it doesnt work, try the others in that is successful. You can also kill the ants by dehydrating them with instant grits, which you tion of the grocery store. They eat them and then go off and die.I like the smell of incense in a room, but sometimes it gives me a headache. How can I avoid that? B. L., Pawtucket, R.I. Use caution with incense, especially if you have a history of aller gies or asthma. If you notice even a slight headache, discontinue their use. The purer, more expensive incense sticks tend to lead to fewer problems of this sort, or choose natural ingredients (sage leaves, sticks of rosemary) instead of commercial versions. The most popular incense herbs are the woody varieties such as sandalwood and juniper and various barks such as cinnamon or sassafras. Pine needles, hemlock needles, and rosemary needles are often used, as well. For ceremonial pur poses, Native Americans often used sage, sweet grass, cedar, and tobacco. Tibetan incense often included frankincense and juniper leaves, with a base of sandalwood, while Japanese recipes might include star anise and cherry oil over sandalwood. Sage is perhaps the most common incense used as a remedy. Be cause of its calming scent and antiseptic and antibacterial properties, it was often burned and used to fumigate churches, funeral rooms, and sickrooms. Native Americans used it both ceremonially and in cleansing rituals, after childbirth or illness. Incense to enhance romance often includes rose petals, lavender, cinnamon, and rosemary.

There was a Chapel in the Capitol, people get married there and it was made of seashells and keya mural, and an astronaut donated a square that had his signature and his motto. Outside the Capitol building there were tin metal dolphins, a water fall and a nice little picnic area. We were freezing our heads off and it was really cold on the Capitol Building Plaza level. The wind was bad. When you look up at the Capitol Building it looked like it was moving but it wasnt, the clouds and winds made it look like it. In the museum we saw Grandmas Attic. In Grandmas Attic there were Bibles, dictionaries, a ton of hats, toys, one little tricycle, a ton of clothes, and a sewing machine. There were cars half of a steamboat and there was people dressed like they did back then. Even my silly brother put his head and arm in the cannon in the museum. It showed World War I and World War II guns and cannons. There were Spanish coins in glass cases too. My mom and many moms and dads and teachers took many pictures. altha wildcats Wildcat apparel fund raiser planned Nov. 18Altha FCA sponsors volleyball tournament for cancer awareness

Page 16 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 16, 2011 GARDENINGLandscape trends focus on cleaning & conserving waterWith cooler weather providing optimal condi tions for the planting or transplanting of trees and shrubs, fall is the time to redecorate the outdoors. When redecorating a room in your house or updating your wardrobe, its important to know the current trends---whats in and whats out. The same is true for the landscape. Plants can be very trendy, falling in and out of fashion. With plants, however, it is important to also consider climate and site conditions when redesigning a garden. What are we to expect in the upcoming season? The phenomenon known as the El Nio-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is the biggest trend setter in yearto-year climate variability. When surface water temperatures in the Pacific Ocean along the equator turn colder than normal La Nia conditions exist. El Nio often thought of as the opposite of La Nia, is when is warmer than normal. The experts are predicting that La Nia condi tions will return. In the Southeast United States, a drier and warmer winter and spring (November through March) can be expected. For Florida, central and lower Alabama, and central and southern Georgia rainfall may be 40 to 60 percent lower than normal with temperatures three to four degrees warmer than nor mal. La Nia events may last more than one year, in fact, they tend to last longer than El Nio events. In light of the recent droughts in Texas, Georgia and the Carolinas, and the predicted La Nia pattern, many landscape professionals are focused on water. Consequently, the latest landscaping trends are waterwise plants, cleaning and conserving water and smaller water features.WATER WISE PLANTSThe main object of waterwise landscaping is to establish and maintain a healthy landscape by matching the right plants with existing site conditions so that the use of additional resources, such as water, is minimized. Look for plants that can survive on normal rainfall once they are established or that require minimal ir rigation. A comprehensive guide to waterwise Florida landscaping that emphasizes the use of plants and landscaping principles to maximize water conser vation is available online terwise.pdf The guide is CONSERVING WATERConserving our water supply and reducing water pollution are important issues throughout Florida. surface water bodies, water shortages do occur. When redesigning your landscape, think about gardens are shallow depres deep-rooted plants and grassesall of them noninvasive, native or locally adapted can handle being inundated with water and also dont mind being dry. Well designed rain gar dens soak up excess rainpollutants. By absorbing runoff from roofs, driveways, patios, and other impervious surfaces that prevent water from soaking into the soil, rain gardens help reduce the amount of polluted water entering local waterways. For more information about rain gardens, visit pdf or contact your local Extension Service.SMALLER WATER FEATURESMore and more people are moving away from large ponds and toward smaller water features. Making water available to wildlife is important, but maintenance of large features can be overwhelming. The trend is to have a cut piece of stone, a boulder or a beautiful glazed urn with water bubbling out of the top. If your landscape looks tired and outdated, think about modernizing it with waterwise plants, design and products. by Theresa Friday, Horticulture Extension Agent, Santa Rosa County Buy Rite DrugsT entative dates for the enrollment period are Nov. 7 18, 2011Contact your local Buy Rite Pharmacist before making your decision.

In this months column, I cover most everything you need to know about general gun, fall turkey, quail and gray squirrel, snipe and the second phase of mourning and white-winged dove seasons. pick up a $17 Florida resident hunting license. Nonresidents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. If you plan to hunt one of Floridas many wildlife management areas (WMAs), youll also need a $26.50 management area permit, but dont forget to study the brochure for the dates, bag limits and rules differ greatly from area to area. You can get these brochures at WMA, or you can download them from MyFWC.com/Hunting. You can buy your license and per mits by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA com. Have your credit card ready. You also can purchase them from a supplies. The general gun season runs Nov. 5 Jan. 22 in Zone C; Dec. 3 Feb. 19 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun season runs Nov. 19 Jan. 1. In Zone D, it starts Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 24) and lasts four days through Nov. 27. Two weeks later, the season reopens Dec. 10 and runs through Feb. 19. Hunters can take bucks having at least one antler 5 inches or longer, but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer permit. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two, but during some quota hunts on WMAs, the bag limit is only one deer. In some cases, there are antler restrictions, so read the particular WMA brochure before hunting. On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year-round with no bag or size limits. On most but not all WMAs, theres also no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them during any hunting season except spring turkey. Again, check the WMA brochure to be certain. The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called doe week, is Nov. 19-25 (Thanksgiving week) in zones A and C, and Dec. 26 Jan. 1 (Christmas week) in zones B and D. During doe week, the daily bag limit is one buck and one doe, or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day as you can during archery season, and spotted fawns are never legal game. By the way, WMAs do not have an antlerless deer season. If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules and registration requirements may apply, so call the FWC for details. Fall turkey season in Zone A is Nov. 19 Jan. 1. In zones B and C, it runs Dec. 3 Jan. 29 and Nov. 5 Jan. 1, respectively. And in Zone D, fall tur key season is Nov. 24-27 and Dec. 10 Jan. 15, except for Holmes County, where there is no fall turkey season. Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game, and you must have a tur key permit ($10 for residents; $125 for nonresidents) to hunt them. The bag limit is one bird per day, and a total of two during the archery, crossbow, muzzleloading gun and fall turkey seasons combined. Quail and gray squirrel season runs statewide Nov. 12 March 4. Theres a daily bag limit of 12 for each, but shooting fox squirrels is against the law. Shooting hours for deer, turkeys, quail and gray squirrels is a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after muzzleloaders, bows, crossbows and pistols are legal for taking these resident game animals during the general gun, antlerless deer, fall turkey, and quail and gray squirrel seasons. Florida snipe hunting ranks second in the nation for the number of birds harvested each year. That season runs Nov. 1 Feb. 15 statewide. The second phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season also comes in this month and runs Nov. 12-27. Shooting hours for migratory game birds are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. The bag limit for snipe is eight; for doves, the bag limit is 15. You must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game birds.Outta the Woods by Tony Young

Kristopher Bailey was arrested Nov. 7 after investigators received a tip that he was making meth at the residence where he had been living for the past two months with his girlfriend. Sgt. Todd Wheetley and Sgt. Brian Bateman examined a shed located south of the home when they searched the property on Oct. 31. Two reaction vessels used to make meth which contained remnants of pseudoephedrine, lye and lithium were found outside, along with a homemade funnel and chemical-soaked paper towels. In the arrest report, Wheetley noted that it appeared there had been two explosions outside the shed, which is a dangerous side-effect of the meth-making process. When they looked inside the shed, the investigators found several strips of tin foil with burnt methamphetamine residue, plastic tubing with residue, a plate with residue methamphetamine and a lithium battery. In another shed on the property, a mason jar with white residue was found. A confidential source working with the sheriffs went out to the shed on a daily basis for at least an hour. He was reportedly the only person who used the shed on the south side of the home. The source said Bailey who smelled of chemicals and would go several days at a time without sleep had talked about how two bottles being used to make meth had blown up. The source had caught Bailey cooking methamphetamine a couple of times and asked him not to bring any of the dangerous drug into the house. Bailey reportedly ignored the request and brought with his knife. While looking into Baileys history, investigators began tracking his purchases Meth lab found in shed near CR 379 residence KRIStT OPHeER BAILeEY Homecoming at BHS 50includes tax ThHE CalhoALHOUnN-LIbBErtRTY J OUURNAL Volume 31, Number 45 Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011 CLJ News.comby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA Hosford woman involved in a collision at the intersection of SR 20 and SR 65 Monday morning died of her injuries at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Bernadine Marie Finuff, 84. She was transported from the scene by Life Flight Air Ambulance and taken to Tallahassee with critical injuries which later resulted in her death. Robert Charles of Carrabelle stopped to offer help at the scene and climbed into Finuffs car through the back window in an attempt to stabilize her before the ambulance arrived. The Florida Highway Patrol report gave the following account of the wreck: Finuff was northbound on SR 65 at 10:30 a.m. when she came to the intersection with SR 20 and stopped at the stop sign. Then, for reasons unknown, she drove north through the intersection and into the path of an eastbound 1997 Ford F-150 driven by 82-year-old Louie Andrew Sutton of Bristol. The front of Suttons truck hit the left side of Finuffs 1994 Chevrolet Sebring. The impact pushed the car eastward as it spun around counter-clockwise. The car came to rest facing west on the northeast corner of SR 20 and SR 65. The truck came to a stop in the parking lot of the Chevron Station nearby. Sutton was said to have sustained minor injuries. He was taken to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital in Blountstown. Both drivers were wearing seatbelts. The collision is being investigated by FHP Trooper Michael Simmons and homicide investigator Cpl. T.M. Chukes.The car was totaled. Damages to the truck were estimated at $5,000.

Bears and their cubs roam forests and swamps from Eglin Air Force Base in the Panhandle to Ocala National Forest in the states midsection and Big Cypress National Preserve in Southwest Florida. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), which worked with its partners to increase the states black bear population, has released a new draft management plan for the bear and is asking for public input. Both a summary of public feedback and the draft plan will go before the Commission at its February 2012 meeting. The Florida black bear is truly a conservation success story. Bear from broad public support and diligent conservation efforts across Florida, particularly in those communities where black bears have become more common, said FWC Executive Director Nick Wiley. We welcome the publics thoughts on how to best continue our bear conservation efforts in the future, as both our human and bear populations expand. The goal of the draft management plan is to maintain sustainable black bear populations in suitable habitats throughout Florida people. It includes measurable objectives regarding bear populations, habitat, citizen education and outreach, and human-bear The Florida black bear currently does not meet the criteria of being at high risk of extinction, based on the FWCs Biological Status Review on the species completed in early 2011. When a bear management plan is approved, the bear will no longer be on the states list of threatened species. A similar process was followed for the bald eagle, which is no longer listed as a state threatened species but is carefully managed through established under an FWC management plan. The FWC is seeking public input on the draft bear management plan. The open process will include four public workshops: Bristol (Nov. 22), Naples (Nov. 29), Deland (Dec. 6), and Gainesville (Dec. 13). Go to MyFWC. com/Bear to access workshop details, read the plan and comment online. The draft bear management plan includes: management units (BMUs) to provide localized bear management and public involvement appropriate to the area, from about 1,000 bears in the Central BMU, which includes Ocala National Forest, to about 20 bears in the Big Bend BMU, which includes Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. bear hunting in Florida. A bear hunt is not proposed in the plan. Currently, Florida black bears may not be hunted, harmed or killed, and similar prohibitions would continue under a rule proposed in the plan. munities in areas of high bear on the rise in Florida. In 2010, the FWC received more than 4,000 calls from citizens about bears. In the past 10 years, more than half of those calls were related to bears rummaging through garbage. A Bear Smart Community would involve residents, local governments, businesses and schools in changing peoples behaviors to Peoples involvement in conserving bears is critical, Wiley said. For example, employees at the U.S. Air Forces Hurlburt Field have an active bear education program for base residents and recently acquired hundreds of bear-proof garbage cans. Those efforts dramatically reduced the number of bears wandering into their neighborhoods. Black bears are generally shy and nonaggressive toward humans. But bears can smell food from more than a mile away and so are tempted to leave forests and swamps to dine on garbage and pet food that is left outdoors and unsecured. The diet of Florida black bears is mostly vegetarian, with 15 percent insects, and 5 percent animal matter. The bears menu includes saw palmetto, acorns, ferns, blackberries, bees, alligator eggs, armadillo and opossum. Male bears typically weigh between 250 and 400 pounds; females are smaller, weighing 125 to 250 pounds. At birth, a bear cub is about the size of a can of soda and weighs less A Bear Management workshop will be held in Bristol Tuesday, Nov. 22 at Veterans Memorial Civic Center beginning at 6 p.m.than a pound. Conservation of Florida wildlife habitats on both public and privately owned lands helped ensure the rebounding bear population had room to grow. However, expected future loss of large forests is the major long-term challenge to maintaining black bears in a growing state of nearly 19 million people. The adult male black bear rambles over a 60,000-acre range; the females range is 15,000 acres. The more immediate danger to a black bear is crossing the road. Being hit by a car or truck is the major cause of known bear deaths in the state, with 158 bears killed or euthanized after being injured on highways in 2010. The Florida black bear is among the 62 wildlife species that soon will join the list of Florida species, like the bald eagle, already under an FWC management plan. Floridas new threatened species conservation model requires that management plans be created for all species that have been state-listed and intervals. Those management plans give citizens an active role in Floridas efforts to conserve its diverse wildlife for future generations. Suggestions on revising the bear plan will be accepted online through Jan. 10, 2012, at MyFWC.com/ Bear, where more informa tion also is available on the Florida black bear.

It's easy to enter! Just tell us how your habitat provides food, water, cover, and a place to raise young. Teachers, please note that schoolyard habitats are eligible. The winning habitat will be featured on our website and in our newsletter. We will award a prize of an age-suitable gardening book and a commemorative plaque to the winner. All entries must be received by March 31, 2012. There is currently great concern among health care specialists, educators, environmentalists, and parents about the shrinking amount of time todays children spend playing outdoors. It is believed that this is increasing obesity as well as other health being outdoors and causing a sad disconnect with nature among our youngsters. Most authorities believe it is imperative to get kids to leave the computer games indoors and get outside for healthy activities. The Florida Wildlife Federation is committed to Floridas children as well as to Floridas plants and wildlife. We think there is a way to tie them together promoting health for both kids and critters by encouraging youngsters to start and maintain a wildlife habitat. This is an excellent activity for children 12 and under. It gets them outdoors, keeps them active digging and pulling the inevitable weeds, sparks an interest in gardening, teaches them something about identifying both plants and animals in the natural world, and (important to all parents), keeps them from wandering to places where they might not be safe. For all the above good reasons, Florida Wildlife Federation is announcing the third Kids Wildlife Habitat Contest, where we will award a prize of an excellent gardening book on Earth Day in April, 2012 to the best wildlife habitat. Teachers please note that schoolyard habitats are included as long as they are worked in by the children.

Barron and the Florida State chapter of the Collegiate Veterans Association (CVA) have announced several new initiatives that will help the university in its efforts to become the most veteran-friendly public university in the nation. The initiatives are designed to provide support and services to assist veterans in their transition to college and successful pursuit of a degree. To launch the initiatives, a special Veterans Day screening of Hell and Back Again, directed by Danfung Dennis, made its Southeastern premiere at Ruby Diamond 2011 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prizewinner. With nearly 25 percent of recentlyseparated-from-the-military veterans enrolling in college within two years, the need for support and assistance in the transition from military service to college student is obvious, Barron said. Although FSU is already recognized as a Military Friendly School, we want to do more for our student-veterans, while raising awareness about their educational needs andservice to our country among the student body in general. The new initiatives include: Center, which will reach veterans of all generations. The center will serve as the focal point for all campus veteran resources, academic advising, orientation and transition programming, personal and rehabilitative support services, and State Veterans Center, who will implement the centers mission to recruit veterans who want to transition from military service to college life; support veterans by coordinating services; and promote awareness of Florida States veteran heritage and current issues facing student-veterans. In addition, the director will promote Florida States veteran-friendly initiatives nationally. eran Film Festival to raise awareness of veterans issues and support the establishment of a veterans center. This years screening of Hell and Back Again, center, set the stage for what will become These initiatives are important because nationally veterans are graduating at a lesser rate than nonveterans, said Jared Lyon, president of the CVA and a veteran of the U.S. Navy, where he served on multiple deployments around the globe from 2001 to 2005. As an institution for higher learning, it is our responsibility to ensure that studentveterans have the resources available to them to be successful in their goal of achieving a college degree. Because veterans tend to be older students the average age of a student-veteran at FSU is 27 they have been out of the academic environment for a greater period of time and often struggle with transition and isolation. In addition, some may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder or physical limitations. Florida State is unique among univer sities because of the depth and scope of services it intends to offer, Lyon said. Not only is Florida State going to provide the services needed by studentveterans, the university also is going to try to identify the reasons behind these lower graduation rates while focusing on making the campus a more inviting and welcoming environment for veterans past, present and future, he said. Plans are under way to build a 35,000-square-foot building located on Jefferson Street near the Varsity Way roundabout. The proposal calls for bringing the Florida State Veterans II museum together into one facility that would promote collaboration. In the meantime, the Pearl Tyner House at the Florida State Alumni Association complex on West Tennessee Street will serve as the centers temporary home. It is now open and is available to students from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. A university advisory board recommended establishing a center and hiring a director to oversee the center and services. Barron appointed the advisory board in spring 2011 after Lyon and several members of the CVA approached him about the need for improved support and services for veterans and their dependents at the university. It was the students, however, who came up with the idea of hosting an veterans issues. Florida State Interfraternity Council President David Ward approached Lyon about developing an event to support student-veterans, and soon the Student Veteran Film Festival was born. We wanted to create an event that was as entertaining as it was educational, Ward said. Our student-veterans contribute so much to our campus community, and its our duty both as citizens and Seminoles to raise funds and awareness for this great cause. We couldn't be happier to help make this landmark event come to life. Working with Frank Patterson, dean of the College of Motion Picture Arts, and Paul Cohen, director of the colleges Torchlight program, the students were able to secure the rights to screen the newly released documentary Hell and Back Again for the inaugural event. When we saw Hell and Back Again at Sundance, where it won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize, we knew then that we needed to bring it to Florida State, Patterson said. foot building located on Jefferson Street near the Varsity Way roundabout in Tallahassee.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 16, 2011Republicans: Anyone but ObamaAnyone but Obama for president is the only common theme in the rhetoric of the Republican candidates vying for the presidency. Otherwise, the Republican debates could be considered a modern day Tower of Babel. Herman God told me to run Cain is the darling of the right-wingers in spite of the allegations that he sexually harassed women. For a political instant in time, Rick No, God told me to run Perry was the darling of the right-wingers, but Perry has proven himself to be a mere mortal like the rest of us. He forgets things. Recognizing that Perry isnt the walk on water type that would qualify as the national preacher and savior of Cains coattails in spite of his alleged sexual peccadillos. But, Newt Stop asking me stupid questions Gingrich is rising from the right-wing political dust like a conservative Phoenix. Newt Gingrich knows everything and has all the answers to any subject that might come to the fore. Dont believe it, ask him, and he will respond in the most condescending manner to make the person to whom he is talking feel as low and small as the sole of his shoe. Newt is a self-proclaimed, selfcentered walking set of encyclopedias. Many people divorce, marry, divorcebut Gingrich midst of cancer treatment. That was cold. Gingrich allegedly was two-timing his second wife while calling for President Clintons impeachment for Clintons sexual discretions. As my crusty old Grandmother would say, Pot calling the kettle black. One of the disappoints for me in all this political hoohaa is that social conservatives seem to have abandoned their conservative values. The principle that every sinner should be punished is missing from the Cain and Gingrich dialog. Apparently, social conservatives hate (thats not nice) President Obama so much that they will ignore the allegations against Cain and the fact that Gingrich has a muddied matrimonial history. The U.S. has been at war in the Middle East for a decade, but if Mitt Romney or Newt I know everything Gingrich become president, there is a very the Middle East for another decade or longer. The last presidential debate focused on foreign pol-CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS icy. The International Atomic Energy Agency reports that Iran is building the bomb. Romney and Gingrich both stated that they would employ U.S. military forces against Iran if economic sanctions did not deter nuclear weapons development in the country. It is easy for politicians to say we will go to war when they are pandering for votes, but not so easy to do in practice. at a map. Iran is bounded on the east by Pakistan and Afghanistan. On the north by the land-locked Caspian Sea, and the Stans, such as Turkmenistan and on the west by Iraq. In the south, Iran borders on the Gulf of Oman. Invading from the Gulf of Oman is possible, but not probable unless the invading forces are mountain goats. The terrain rises rapidly becoming a mountain range just a short distance inland from the Gulf of Oman. If a military force can get past the initial hurdle of a mountain range, it is still approximately 2,000 miles of answer? Bomb them, but airpower alone wont win a war. So, if a Republican should win the presidency, particularly Romney or Gingrich, then the probability of another decade of war is very real. According to news reports, because of the looming Iranian nuclear threat, Israel is contemplating a pre-emptive strike on Iran. Hopefully, clearer heads will prevail. Michelle waterboard em Bachmann along with Cain and Perry believe that dunking prisoners will result in gaining good intelligence. Waterboarding has been totally discredited as an interrogation technique. Of course, when a politician is pandering, they will also say anything, waterboarding not required. I still think that after each debate, the public should get to vote one of the candidates off the stage and out of the race, but while that will not happen, at least tape a debate and just play it for the next debate and the next With the exception of Romney and Huntsman, the other Republican presidential contenders are a scary group. Their bizarre ideas and beliefs, coupled with their incompetence in economic and foreign policy issues indicated to me that they have no concept of where America is, or should be, in the global economy. to all foreign policy confrontations while they have their ing. COMMENTARY Late Night LaughsA recaRECAP oOF recentRECENT obOBSerER Vation ATIONS by BY lateLATE niNIGhtHT tV TV hoHOStTS.If I were Mitt Romney, I wouldnt show up anymore. I would just go to Hawaii and wait it out until the election, drink some caffeine free Diet Coke and watch Herman Cain and Rick P Perry self-destruct.- JIMMY KIMMELThe Republican presidential candidates held a debate in Michigan. Just what Michigan needs: 12 more people looking for a job. ConanONAN OBrienRIENSSomeone told Rick P Perry today that Obama, as he did, laid a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown S Soldier. And Rick P Perry said SSee, he blanks on names too. BILL MAHERA new poll shows 45 percent of Republicans believe that Mitt Romney will be the nominee, and that rises to 46 percent if you count Rick P Perry, who also believes Mitt Romney will be the nominee. JAY LENORick P Perry forgets his own talking points, Herman Cain forgets every woman he ever groped, Mitt Romney forgets he used to be for everything he is now against; they dont need debates, they need ginkgo biloba. BILL MAHERA guy named Reggie Love leaving the White House to get a degree at the Wharton S School of Business. I guess he realized you cant learn anything about economics in the Obama White House. JAY LENOToday its 61 and foggy, like Rick PPerry. But its nice to see a guy running for P President whos only groping for words. DAV VID LETTERMAN basketball game ever played on an aircraft carrier. Dont confuse that with the NBA. Thats a bunch of guys not playing basketball on a sinking ship. JAY LENODuring the debate, there was an awkward moment when Herman Cain turned to Michele Bachmann and asked her what she was willing to do to get the job. ConanONAN OBrienRIENBig news from the Republican debate. It turns out G George Bush was actually the smart Texas governor. JIMMY FF ALLONIts not a good week for Republican memories. Rick P Perry forgot the name of the agency he wanted to cut. Herman Cain forgot there was a harassment settlement. And Ron P Paul forgot he has no chance of winning. CRAIGG FFERGGUSSONMost analysts agree the big debate winner was Mitt Romney, who stuck closely to his strategy of not being any of the other candidates. JIMMY KIMMELWhats the difference between Lindsay Lohan and Rick P Perry? It only takes Lindsay four and a JAY LENOMichele Bachmann says she wont rest until Obamacare is repealed. Or until she kidnaps all 101 Dalmatians. JIMMY KIMMELMitt Romney said he created thousands of jobs at governor of Massachusetts. Rick P Perry said he created thousands as governor of Texas. Herman Cain said he tried to create a number of jobs for women but now hes getting attacked for it all of a sudden. JIMMY KIMMEL

Tina and Chip Ward of Blountstown took in Precious after a friends dog had puppies it could not nurse. We never thought we could enjoy a small dog so much until Precious came into our lives, says Tina. They hand fed Precious with a bottle for a month until She now goes to work with Tina and Chip, whether they are painting a house, building a porch, riding the mower or cutting the grass at Granny Lenas. Precious is ready to go as soon as the car keys rattle. She also works as an early alert system anytime a cat or varmit is around, according to Tina. Precious has two playmates at her other grannys, Lavada Adkins, that she enjoys spending time with. Minnie and Bugger are Chihuahuas owned by Stella Hough and Chris. When they come home each afternoon, Precious likes to chase the stray cats out of the yard and play with her favorite toy ball. She then enjoys eating some of her daddys bacon and curling up in her moms lap with her fuzzy blue blanket. She sleeps until her services as a guard dog are needed during the night. Precious will be one year old Dec. 13. Ive decided to try to get greener. Any ideas for everyday small changes? N. S., Tallahassee. There are many habits that we can change if we just allow ourselves to be creative. Remember, recycling is far from a new concept. Did your grandmother throw anything away that could be of use in another form? I doubt it. Here are a few ideas to start with: If you pack a lunch, youll produce less garbage if you put your food into reusable containers instead of disposable ones and keep utensils that you can wash and use repeatedly instead of going through a set of plastic ones every day. Carry your own mug to the coffee stand instead of using their throwaway cup. Cut up old clothing into rags and use these instead of paper towels. You can also choose environmentally safer household cleaning products, such as white vinegar or baking soda. When youre used to chemical cleansers, you alternatives dont do as thorough a job without some effort. If the extra elbow grease isnt for you, start by choosing the alternatives for the easier jobs only. I n the dishwasher, for instance, use regular soaps for the pots and pans but try the greener detergents for everyday dish loads. Try cold water for your washing machine loads (with a cold-water detergent) or use a drying rack or clothesline instead of the dryer. With a few small changes like these, youre well on your way to a life style that is cheaper, more environment. And dont forget the old adage, Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.This past summer, we had ants burrowing up between our patio stones. How can we prevent this from happening again? D. P., Manchester, N.H.There are approximately 8,000 species of ants, and without knowing which species you are dealing with, it is hard to advise you. If you are not sure of the species, you can have a pest control company come out and identify them for you. Or, you can simply scoop up some live ants in a dry medicine bottle or baby food jar and take them to the pest control tion. Depending on the species, ants may eat grease, sweets (both those found in a home and the sweet nectar produced by aphids), or even other insects. Once a colony locates a desired food source, hundreds of workers may descend on the food. To repel ants, try vinegar, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, cream of tartar, salt, or perfume. Just place one of these substances along their path. If it doesnt work, try the others in that is successful. You can also kill the ants by dehydrating them with instant grits, which you tion of the grocery store. They eat them and then go off and die.I like the smell of incense in a room, but sometimes it gives me a headache. How can I avoid that? B. L., Pawtucket, R.I. Use caution with incense, especially if you have a history of allergies or asthma. If you notice even a slight headache, discontinue their use. The purer, more expensive incense sticks tend to lead to fewer problems of this sort, or choose natural ingredients (sage leaves, sticks of rosemary) instead of commercial versions. The most popular incense herbs are the woody varieties such as sandalwood and juniper and various barks such as cinnamon or sassafras. Pine needles, hemlock needles, and rosemary needles are often used, as well. For ceremonial pur poses, Native Americans often used sage, sweet grass, cedar, and tobacco. Tibetan incense often included frankincense and juniper leaves, with a base of sandalwood, while Japanese recipes might include star anise and cherry oil over sandalwood. Sage is perhaps the most common incense used as a remedy. Be cause of its calming scent and antiseptic and antibacterial properties, it was often burned and used to fumigate churches, funeral rooms, and sickrooms. Native Americans used it both ceremonially and in cleansing rituals, after childbirth or illness. Incense to enhance romance often includes rose petals, lavender, cinnamon, and rosemary.

Page 16 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 16, 2011 GARDENINGLandscape trends focus on cleaning & conserving waterWith cooler weather providing optimal condi tions for the planting or transplanting of trees and shrubs, fall is the time to redecorate the outdoors. When redecorating a room in your house or updating your wardrobe, its important to know the current trends---whats in and whats out. The same is true for the landscape. Plants can be very trendy, falling in and out of fashion. With plants, however, it is important to also consider climate and site conditions when redesigning a garden. What are we to expect in the upcoming season? The phenomenon known as the El Nio-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is the biggest trend setter in yearto-year climate variability. When surface water temperatures in the Pacific Ocean along the equator turn colder than normal La Nia conditions exist. El Nio often thought of as the opposite of La Nia, is when is warmer than normal. The experts are predicting that La Nia condi tions will return. In the Southeast United States, a drier and warmer winter and spring (November through March) can be expected. For Florida, central and lower Alabama, and central and southern Georgia rainfall may be 40 to 60 percent lower than normal with temperatures three to four degrees warmer than normal. La Nia events may last more than one year, in fact, they tend to last longer than El Nio events. In light of the recent droughts in Texas, Georgia and the Carolinas, and the predicted La Nia pattern, many landscape professionals are focused on water. Consequently, the latest landscaping trends are waterwise plants, cleaning and conserving water and smaller water features.WATERw WISE PlLAnNTSThe main object of waterwise landscaping is to establish and maintain a healthy landscape by matching the right plants with existing site conditions so that the use of additional resources, such as water, is minimized. Look for plants that can survive on normal rainfall once they are established or that require minimal irrigation. A comprehensive guide to waterwise Florida landscaping that emphasizes the use of plants and landscaping principles to maximize water conser vation is available online terwise.pdf The guide is COnNSERVInNG WATERConserving our water supply and reducing water pollution are important issues throughout Florida. surface water bodies, water shortages do occur. When redesigning your landscape, think about gardens are shallow depresdeep-rooted plants and grassesall of them noninvasive, native or locally adapted can handle being inundated with water and also dont mind being dry. Well designed rain gardens soak up excess rainpollutants. By absorbing runoff from roofs, driveways, patios, and other impervious surfaces that prevent water from soaking into the soil, rain gardens help reduce the amount of polluted water entering local waterways. For more information about rain gardens, visit pdf or contact your local Extension Service.SSMAllLLER WATER FEATURESMore and more people are moving away from large ponds and toward smaller water features. Making water available to wildlife is important, but maintenance of large features can be overwhelming. The trend is to have a cut piece of stone, a boulder or a beautiful glazed urn with water bubbling out of the top. If your landscape looks tired and outdated, think about modernizing it with waterwise plants, design and products. by Theresa Friday, Horticulture Extension Agent, Santa Rosa County Buy Rite DrugsTT entative dates for the enrollment period are Nov. 7 18, 2011Contact your local Buy Rite Pharmacist before making your decision.

In this months column, I cover most everything you need to know about general gun, fall turkey, quail and gray squirrel, snipe and the second phase of mourning and white-winged dove seasons. pick up a $17 Florida resident hunting license. Nonresidents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. If you plan to hunt one of Floridas many wildlife management areas (WMAs), youll also need a $26.50 management area permit, but dont forget to study the brochure for the dates, bag limits and rules differ greatly from area to area. You can get these brochures at WMA, or you can download them from MyFWC.com/Hunting. You can buy your license and permits by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA com. Have your credit card ready. You also can purchase them from a supplies. The general gun season runs Nov. 5 Jan. 22 in Zone C; Dec. 3 Feb. 19 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun season runs Nov. 19 Jan. 1. In Zone D, it starts Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 24) and lasts four days through Nov. 27. Two weeks later, the season reopens Dec. 10 and runs through Feb. 19. Hunters can take bucks having at least one antler 5 inches or longer, but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer permit. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two, but during some quota hunts on WMAs, the bag limit is only one deer. In some cases, there are antler restrictions, so read the particular WMA brochure before hunting. On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year-round with no bag or size limits. On most but not all WMAs, theres also no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them during any hunting season except spring turkey. Again, check the WMA brochure to be certain. The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called doe week, is Nov. 19-25 (Thanksgiving week) in zones A and C, and Dec. 26 Jan. 1 (Christmas week) in zones B and D. During doe week, the daily bag limit is one buck and one doe, or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day as you can during archery season, and spotted fawns are never legal game. By the way, WMAs do not have an antlerless deer season. If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules and registration requirements may apply, so call the FWC for details. Fall turkey season in Zone A is Nov. 19 Jan. 1. In zones B and C, it runs Dec. 3 Jan. 29 and Nov. 5 Jan. 1, respectively. And in Zone D, fall turkey season is Nov. 24-27 and Dec. 10 Jan. 15, except for Holmes County, where there is no fall turkey season. Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game, and you must have a tur key permit ($10 for residents; $125 for nonresidents) to hunt them. The bag limit is one bird per day, and a total of two during the archery, crossbow, muzzleloading gun and fall turkey seasons combined. Quail and gray squirrel season runs statewide Nov. 12 March 4. Theres a daily bag limit of 12 for each, but shooting fox squirrels is against the law. Shooting hours for deer, turkeys, quail and gray squirrels is a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after muzzleloaders, bows, crossbows and pistols are legal for taking these resident game animals during the general gun, antlerless deer, fall turkey, and quail and gray squirrel seasons. Florida snipe hunting ranks second in the nation for the number of birds harvested each year. That season runs Nov. 1 Feb. 15 statewide. The second phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season also comes in this month and runs Nov. 12-27. Shooting hours for migratory game birds are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. The bag limit for snipe is eight; for doves, the bag limit is 15. You must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game birds.Outta the Woods by Tony Young
