Come Home to Rehab An altercation between an 18-year-old man and a teenage girl has led to one arrest despite a confusing number of stories from those at the scene. Willie Smith of Bristol was charged with battery. An additional charge of resisting arrest without violence was added when he repeatedly struck his head against the inside of the patrol car after being taken into custody, according to the arrest report. Smith also cursed deputies, shouted racial slurs and threatened to spit on the Before being transported to jail, deputies had to remove Smith from the patrol car and put him in leg shackles before placing him on his stomach in the back seat. A surgical mask was put on his face to prevent him from spitting on anyone. Smith was nowhere to be seen when deputies responded to a report of a physical altercation in progress at Faircloth Trailer Park around 2:50 p.m. on Nov. 16. Witnesses reported seeing a girl being choked by a black male wearing a dark shirt. At one point, the man had the girl on the ground, according to a witness. When deputies spoke with the 17-year-old victim, her face and neck were red and she had red scratch marks on her neck, upper chest and arms. She said her injuries were the result of being scratched by an autistic child. When asked about the altercation, the girl denied that anything had happened. She later stated that she and a friend were playing around in the yard but would not identify the friend. Major Roman Wood did a walk-through of the trailer where the girl and her mother were staying. He stepped into the bathroom and found Smith standing in the shower, hiding behind the shower curtain, fully clothed. Wood noticed Smith had scratches on his neck and chest. When he then spoke with the victim, she said they had only been wrestling, telling him that they do that all the time. Wood spoke with the victims aunt on the phone, who said the victim and Smith were at her home earlier and had argued. She said the girl walked home while Smith stayed at her residence to calm down before he headed for the victims home. Smith was given a conditional release from jail the morning after his arrest. WILLIE SMITH ARREST REPORTS continued from page 2 A man was arrested on a battery charge last week following an altercation with his wife at their Ward Street home, according to a report from the Blountstown Police Department. An officer responded to a 911 hang up call from the residence around 7:45 a.m. Nov. 14. The suspect, Troy D. Martin, 41, of Blountstown was gone but his wife was home and appeared distraught when she answered the door. She told BPD Cpl. Patrick Crawford that her husband became angry when he thought their dog had chewed up his shoes. She said she reminded him that he thought that the last time he lost his shoes but they were later found intact. Her comment angered him, she said, and he told her to shut up or he would shut her up. She said she tried to walk away from Martin, who she said had been violent with her in the past, and went to the bedroom to call 911. She said he followed her and knocked the phone out of her hand, and then walked into their computer room where he unzipped her purse. She walked in and asked what he was doing. He replied that he was looking for his money. She said the only money she had was $60 given to her by a church friend and reminded Martin that he had spent most of his money on vehicle repairs. Thats when Martin became violent, according to his wife. She said he pushed her by the throat. She then grabbed a computer wire and told him she would hit him with it. He replied that if she did, he would knock her out, she stated. He then grabbed the money from her purse and left. The arrest report noted that the wife had visible red marks on her throat. Martin was later taken into custody and charged with domestic battery. TROY MARTINMan charged with battery after argument with wife

Some say it proves hes not him to be vice president. JAY LENO tion. CRAIG FERGUSON JAY LENOThey had a midnight raid and they cleaned DA VID LETTERMAN JAY LENO JIMMY KIMMEL JAY LENOIs Iowa Americas religious ver sion of Mecca? For ordinary citi zens, the answer is no; however, for Republican presidential candi dates, it is. Islam requires that a Muslim make at least one pilgrimage to Mecca in his or her lifetime. Christian conservatives require Republi can presidential wannabes to make as many trips to Iowa as necessary for the conservative values litmus test and a complete vetting of their conservative beliefs. However, if the Republican candidate is a Mormon, then dont show up. Evangelicals believe that Mormonism is a cult religion. This past week, the Republican presidential hopefuls, minus Romney and Huntsman, were in Iowa participating in a forum on moral values. The forum was hosted by a group called The Family Leader and held in the First Federated church in Des Moines. Frank Luntz, a prominent member of the right-wing media, was the moderator. Since this was a forum on moral values, all the red meat issues were on the table. The candidates were all vetted on their views on abortion and gays. Former Pennsylvanian senator Rick Santorum was the most vocal on abortion. According to Santorum, Americas laws on abortion do not comport with Gods law. Muslims believe in Sharia Law. So, we now have the right-wingers promoting Gods Law. I wonder what the U.S. judicial system might think the Constitution many times, but guess I missed that part about Gods Law. Hearing Santorums reference to Gods Law was all Newt (No, Im not a lobbyist for Freddie Mac) Gingrich needed, and he launched into a typical Newtonian discussion of how Americas shift to secularism will mean that all of us will die and go to Hell unless we change our ways. With the exception of Ron Paul, the libertarian, the others think that the states should ban samesex marriages with the icing on that cake to be a constitutional amendment banning same-sex mar riages. Republicans repeat that old saw that they want smaller, less intrusive government, but with a straight face, they then call for amending the Constitution to promote their conservative beliefs on the rest of America. For decades, I have watched Americas political parties pander parties pass laws that will help them get re-elected. The U.S. Tax Code is an excellent example of the consequences of political parties promising a chicken in every pot. One estimate is that if all the deductions in the tax code for individuals and corporations were ended, revenue to the treasury would double because ending tax deductions would bring in as much cash as does the market place. But it wont happen. Cains 9-9-9 tax plan is a joke. If you are in a state that doesnt have a sales tax, like New Hampshire, then you got one%. tax. Bachmanns only plan is to rip Obamacare to shreds. Problem is that Obamacare is now a federal law. Presidents cant tear up the document and declare it null and void. Apparently Bachmann missed that 8th grade civics lesson about the three equal branches of government. If all the right-wing hoopla about social issues isnt scary enough, the lets bomb Iran group is even scarier. Romney, Perry, Cain, Bachmann, the Newtster all declare that they will not permit Iran to have the bomb. Thats wonderful rhetoric when pandering for the vote, but come January 21, 2013, one of these what? Past American presidents, both Republican and Democrats, have not prevented Russia, China, India, or Pakistan from acquiring the bomb, but one or all of these right-wingers are going to whup up on those Iranians. Herman Cain is going to show China a thing or two. Someone should inform Cain, if that is possible, that China is our banker and trading partner. Bravado abounds among the Republican candidates for president, but there is a lack of common sense and just plain smarts. Get the hook. COXS CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military

It is truly an ecumenical day without sectarian divide. To fully celebrate Thanksgiving, you do not have to belong to any particular religious group or tradition, or for that matter, to belong to any religious group or tradition. No costumes or expensive purchases required. No loud music or forced late-night gaiety or painful next-morning hangover. Happy Thanksgiving.

Whats the differ ence between a raven and a crow, and why does the former have such a bad reputation? L. K., Selma, AL Ravens and crows are cousins, you might say, both from the family Corvidae, but the black sheep of the family, probably because of its sheer size and darkness of plumage. The common raven (Corvus corax) can be half a foot longer than a crow, spanning about 26 inches in length, whereas the average length of the common American crow (Cor vus brachyrhynchos) is about 20 inches. Ravens have thicker beaks than crows; sport wedge-shape, rather than fan-shape, tails; and emit lower, hoarser calls. Ravens are the largest birds of the crow family and are typical lywellravenous when it comes to feeding. Theyre scavengers and pests, but they do not gather in large groups as crows sometimes do, preferring, instead, to remain alone or in pairs. Theyve come to be seen as birds of bad omens, denoting ill luck or even death. Some say that the with the tendency of ravens to follow armies or pestilence, hoping to feast on corpses. In one old myth, it was a raven that in formed Apollo of the faithlessness of one of his nymphs. For this, Apollo blacked the raven oer, And bid him prate in his white plumes no more. (Evi dently, the raven was formerly as white as a swan.) Other old myths depict the raven as prophetic. Although crows do not share the ominous reputation that ravens do, they can be just as much of a pest. All crows can be thieves of small, bright objects, much like magpiesanother crow cousin, along with blue jays, jackdaws, and rooks. Crows have been known to ruin new plantings of corn, as well as to make a meal of mature corn as it ripens in the Yet, crows are thought to have their strong points, as well. Experts tell us that they are among the most intelligent of birds. Some have been taught to talk, like par rots, and to perform tricks.Has it always been a custom to celebrate birthdays? F. N., Cincinnati, OHIn the distant past, say before 4000 B.C., the human race didnt have a system to keep track of time, so cel ebrating birthdays was a problem. Humans had to invent calendars first. Even after they did, for a long time only kings celebrated their birthdays because someone kept track of when they were born. No one recorded the births of common people. In Greek culture, the heads of important families celebrated their birthdays, but few others. The common practice today of including cakes and birthday popular in the mid1800s, shortly after sending Christmas greeting cards came into style.

We thought we were going to lose her when she got her head stuck in a chain length fence and cut herself badly, but with a lot of doctoring, she pulled through. Anna and Camy think they should go every where with each other. You cant let Camy outside without Anna opening the door and checking on her. Camy loves to do tricks for Anna as long as she gets a treat in return. They enjoy car rides in Annas car seat. You never know when Camy is with you until its a little too late! We have never been able to get Camy to bring a ball back to us but we have found her and Anna in the yard playing fetch together. They really enjoy each other and the family enjoys watching them together. Anna is the daughter of Devin Bruner and Amanda Merkison of Bristol. Anna & Camybirthday, they had a break in the case. Seven years later, Major Roman Wood is driving by and sees Mosley walking down the street behind the courthouse, Smith said about Mondays arrest. Wood knew Mosley was a suspect in the robbery and was also aware he was wanted on a child support warrant. As Mosley got to his mothers house, Wood pulled up and handcuffed him and took him into custody. Then I got a judge to give me a search warrant to collect a DNA swab from his cheek, said Smith, who personally delivered the sample to the Pensacola FDLE lab at 8 a.m. Tuesday. He got a call back from the lab around 4:30 p.m. and learned Mosleys DNA matched a sample found on some of the clothing. Im not sure which piece of evidence it was. I think it was a stocking he used as a mask, Smith said. Mosley is being charged with robbery with a firearm and is awaiting first appearance before a judge Wednesday morning.

Page 20 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 23, 2011 GARDENINGEnjoy fall colors by planting the right treesTravelers often journey north during autumn on a mission to see fall color. Some years they are rewarded with spectacular views. Some times the display is muted. Have you ever wondered the basis of the beautiful colors? With the change in seasons, chemical processes that occur in tree leaves cause them to change color. It all centers on a pigment known as chlorophyll. If you remember your high school science, then youll connect chlorophyll with the process of photosynthesis. What you may not remember is that there are often other pigments, or colors, in a leaf. We dont see these other pigments most of the year because they are masked by the chlorophyll pigment. As the days get shorter and tem peratures cool off, photosynthesis slows. Since the chlorophyll is no longer needed, it breaks down leaving the other colors visible. The yellows, oranges and reds that you see in the fall were really present in the leaves all along. Temperature, water, light and chlorophyll residue all determine just how bright and striking the colors will be. These factors also determine how long the color will hang around. Sunny warm days, cool nights and occasional rains produce the best fall colors. While Florida isnt known for its spectacular autumn leaf displays, we do have several wonderful trees that you can plant for great fall color. tive tree found throughout Florida.

Start planting the right trees now, and you could be enjoying great fall color in years to come! by Theresa Friday, Horticulture Extension Agent, Santa Rosa County Fall is an important time to care for your lawn Professional Landcare Network reminds consumers that fall is an important time of year to care for your lawn and provides the following lawn care tips. For more information specific to your local area, you should consult with your local lawn care professional or county cooperative exten sion agent. MOWING YOUR LAWN Its important to keep your grass 2 to 2-1/2 inches tall throughout the fall. If your grass gets much taller (more than 3 inches) it will mat, and this could lead to winter lawn disease problems such as snow mold. If you cut it shorter than 2 inches, youll severely limit its ability to make and store food for growth in the spring. RAKING LEAVES Lawn raking in the fall removes excess organic debris and can help maintain water quality. In winter, freezing and thawing can cause leaves, dead grass plants, and other organic debris to release soluble forms of phosphate (and nitrates). If these chemicals run off frozen ground dur ing spring snow melt and early spring rains, they can end up in surface water. Keep grass clippings, leaf litter, and other organic debris off driveways, sidewalks, and streets. RECYCLING LEAVES There are several options when it comes to disposing of fallen leaves. The preferred way is to compost them, because composting keeps leaves out of streets and storm sewers. You can also use fallen leaves, whole or chipped by a power mower, as winter mulch around rose bushes and landscape plants. Make several passes over fallen leaves on your lawn with a power mower, chopping enough to stay on the lawn without causing damage while providing nutrients for the grass. Another option would be to bag leaves for disposal by municipal authorities. W ATERING YOUR LAWN Even though tempera tures might be cooler than in summer, your lawn still peratures reduce the need to water, but if it doesnt rain, your lawn will need supplemental watering since lawn grasses continue to grow throughout the fall. Go ahead and water if needed until the ground is cold and beginning to freeze. If you have an automatic irrigation system, avoid damage by having it blown out with compressed air before the water freezes in the pipes and sprinkler heads.

We try to play like were in the NFL. When one of us get the ball we twist and turn to try to get out the hurtful path to the ground. One time I made a touchdown. The food was awesome but playing football with family from Alabama is better. As you can see Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. MICHAEL KINGSizzle! Sizzle. Thanksgiving is already here. My family likes to devour a tremedous golden brown turkey, pie. After we consume our food we like to play games. For example, this year we are going to play hide and seek and all of us kids have to wear a dark brown shirt so we will not be found. After we play we like to take long naps. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday in this season. GLORIA MENDEZFirst, my family eats mashed potatoes with gravy and turkey on Thanksgiving. Next, we give thanks to each other. Then, we play games like hide and seek and other fun games, too. Last we sit around on chairs and share what we did over the year. Thats what my family does for Thanksgiving. BR YAN GARCIAWhat my family does for Thanksgiv ing is we give thanks for the people give food to the people that dont have food. Next we have a feast with some turkey, rice, mash potatoes with gravy. Then the kids go play outside with their cousins. Thanksgiving is about giving thanks. BRANDON WARDMmm! Thats the smell of the tasty crispy brown turkey cooking on Thanksgiving Day. We also devour delicious dressing and crunchy pecan pie. After my family has had our Thanksgiving feast we do activities such as playing board games, watching football, and riding four wheelers down to the creek. Thanksgiving is a time when my family gives thanks. ANA MARIEOn Thanksgiving our family enjoys dinner at my grandmas. We nibble on boiled peanuts while our golden brown turkey cooking in the oven. We also inhale cornbread at our feast. After we eat it is time to clean and go home and that is what I enjoy Thanksgiving. DEMI DAIGLEAt the Chasteen house we celebrate Thanksgiving a little different than other people. First we have a huge turkey, roast, mashed potatoes, collard greens, green beans, mac and cheese, corn on the cob, ham, deviled eggs, pumkin pie, cherry pie, blueberry pie. Finally the best of all... cheese cake. Next the kids go outside and play basketball, they play with the dogs and play football. Sometimes the girls play too. We also like to cheer for the boys. The adults just sit inside and watch TV while the women cook the pies. I cant wait until Thanksgiving. ALLYSSA CHASTENWow! Thanksgiving is here already! I do many fun activities on Thanksgiving. I go to my grannys house and we eat a hot juicy turkey. We also gulp down, cornbread, green yummy pecan pie. Then the men ball, while the kids play our side, the women clean the kitchen. I am blessed to have such a Thanksgiv ing dinner every year. KELSEY HAYThanksgiving is a time my family comes together. My aunts, uncle and cousins all come over to my house. We celebrate with a big turkey some green beans, collard greens and cornbread. After we gobble our dinner the kids jump like monkeys on the trampoline. The men of our family spend the afternoon watching football. The women clean the kitchen, laugh and talk. All in all Thanksgiving dinner is my favorite dinner of all!!! V ANESSA VICKERSMy family thaws the turkey for two to three days. We take the wrapper off the day before and wash it as well as fresh fruit and vegetables. We stick the turkey in the roaster pan and put butter all over the turkey. We then put a little bit of water in the pan put the pan in the oven on 250 and let it cook all night. Yummy! I cant wait to consume that Thanksgiving turkey. JADE MAR YWELLThanksgiving is a time for our family to give thanks. My family enjoys a delicious turkey or a fat ham. We also enjoy green beans, yellow rice and greens. For dessert we usually much on lemon cake or pecan pie. After we eat we play spades or get to watch football on TV. My family enjoys our time together and the delicious food on Thanksgiving. Gobble! Gobble! LEVONTAE BROOKSThanksgiving is a time when my family gets together. To go hunting for a turkey to get ready for our Thanksgiving dinner. We go hunting, eat our feast the men of the house go outside to the man cave. While the kids play outside and the women gossip. We divour the dressing, cranberry red saus, turkey, ham, and biscuts. Thanksgiving is a time my family and I love. COURNEY LARSONYum!!! At the Mackendricks house, we have a family celebration for Thanksgiving. We have a feast of steamed roasted turkey, orange ple cranberries, delicious pumpkin pie, and pecan pie, ruta bakers, and gravy, green beans, peas, and greens that make your jollier than a jolly rancher. When were done impaling our food, the kids go outside and play, while the men in our family watch football on TV. The ladies are busy gossiping and cleaning the kitchen. Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday, because it reminds me of all the wonderful memories I have with my family. JESSIKA REEDERBefore we sit down to feast the children go outside and play like wild animals, while the grown-ups are preparing the delicious food. Then we called the children to come in and wash up. While sitting around the table we say a prayer and tell what we are thankful for. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday in fall. HELLENA BESSFirst my family gets together and talks about what we are going to do. Then we get a huge turkey and all the food we will gobble up. Next, on Thanksgiving Day we get to cooking as fast as a Lion. Finally we all settle what we are thankful for and also say thank you to the ones that help cook.

Even after two years in operation, the shop is still full of sur prises. There arent many things we havent had, said thrift shop manager Janice Malone. There are racks and racks of clothing including many name brand items. Malone points out customers have picked up pairs also had formal wear, including prom dresses, she said, which are also popular items. Tuesday afternoon the thrift mattress sets to its offerings, insize and one full size set. A lot of people are surprised we have furniture here, according to the shops manager. Its not uncommon for an item thats never even been taken out of the box to be donated to the Ministry Center. Some may be gifts that were never appreciated or items that lost their luster soon after being purchased. Theyve sold coffee pots, electric skillets and even an expresso machine for far below their value. From time to time, we even get golf clubs, she added. The biggest seller? Dishes, said Malone, and theyre always welcoming another set to add to their supply. appliances like crock pots and they go real fast, she said. Some items dont stay in the store long because eagle-eyed customers notice when volunteers bring in something new. Theyll stop and get it from us before we get it on the shelves, said Malone.The shop also has many books, videos and DVDs as well as lots of childrens toys, often in mint condition she said. But it takes a lot of work to collect, sort and organize the donations and keep the centers food pantry stocked. A group of 160 volunteers take turns keeping things humming at the center. The centers main goal is to provide free food to needy families through the food pantry. eration, the Ministry Center has provided 6,009 families with over 200,000 pounds of food. The center has given clothing to 1,054 inmates that were released from Liberty and Calhoun Cor rectional Institutions. Counselors reported that 28 spiritual decisions were made by clients during the initial interview process. Everyone is invited to stop and shop at the thrift store. Even if youre not looking to buy, the thrift store is a great place to pass on items that could be of use to others. Donations of good clean usable clothing, household items and furniture are always welcome. For more information, contact the Ministry Center at 674-1818. The center is located along SR 20 in Blountstown near the Trammell Bridge.

The decision came dur ing day one of the two-day November Commission meeting in Key Largo. The changes, which include additional protections for gag grouper while increasing the bag limit for red grouper, will make state protections consistent with gag and red grouper federal rules in the Gulf of Mexico.

A surgical mask was put on his face to prevent him from spitting on anyone. Smith was nowhere to be seen when deputies responded to a report of a physical altercation in progress at Faircloth Trailer Park around 2:50 p.m. on Nov. 16. Witnesses reported seeing a girl being choked by a black male wearing a dark shirt. At one point, the man had the girl on the ground, according to a witness. When deputies spoke with the 17-year-old victim, her face and neck were red and she had red scratch marks on her neck, upper chest and arms. She said her injuries were the result of being scratched by an autistic child. When asked about the altercation, the girl denied that anything had happened. She later stated that she and a friend were playing around in the yard but would not identify the friend. Major Roman Wood did a walk-through of the trailer where the girl and her mother were staying. He stepped into the bathroom and found Smith standing in the shower, hiding behind the shower curtain, fully clothed. Wood noticed Smith had scratches on his neck and chest. When he then spoke with the victim, she said they had only been wrestling, telling him that they do that all the time. Wood spoke with the victims aunt on the phone, who said the victim and Smith were at her home earlier and had argued. She said the girl walked home while Smith stayed at her residence to calm down before he headed for the victims home. Smith was given a conditional release from jail the morning after his arrest.

S Some say it proves hes not him to be vice president. JAY LENO tion. CRAIGG FFERGGUSSON JAY LENOThey had a midnight raid and they cleaned DAV VID LETTERMAN JAY LENO JIMMY KIMMEL JAY LENOIs Iowa Americas religious version of Mecca? For ordinary citizens, the answer is no; however, for Republican presidential candidates, it is. Islam requires that a Muslim make at least one pilgrimage to Mecca in his or her lifetime. Christian conservatives require Republican presidential wannabes to make as many trips to Iowa as necessary for the conservative values litmus test and a complete vetting of their conservative beliefs. However, if the Republican candidate is a Mormon, then dont show up. Evangelicals believe that Mormonism is a cult religion. This past week, the Republican presidential hopefuls, minus Romney and Huntsman, were in Iowa participating in a forum on moral values. The forum was hosted by a group called The Family Leader and held in the First Federated church in Des Moines. Frank Luntz, a prominent member of the right-wing media, was the moderator. Since this was a forum on moral values, all the red meat issues were on the table. The candidates were all vetted on their views on abortion and gays. Former Pennsylvanian senator Rick Santorum was the most vocal on abortion. According to Santorum, Americas laws on abortion do not comport with Gods law. Muslims believe in Sharia Law. So, we now have the right-wingers promoting Gods Law. I wonder what the U.S. judicial system might think the Constitution many times, but guess I missed that part about Gods Law. Hearing Santorums reference to Gods Law was all Newt (No, Im not a lobbyist for Freddie Mac) Gingrich needed, and he launched into a typical Newtonian discussion of how Americas shift to secularism will mean that all of us will die and go to Hell unless we change our ways. With the exception of Ron Paul, the libertarian, the others think that the states should ban samesex marriages with the icing on that cake to be a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages. Republicans repeat that old saw that they want smaller, less intrusive government, but with a straight face, they then call for amending the Constitution to promote their conservative beliefs on the rest of America. For decades, I have watched Americas political parties pander parties pass laws that will help them get re-elected. The U.S. Tax Code is an excellent example of the consequences of political parties promising a chicken in every pot. One estimate is that if all the deductions in the tax code for individuals and corporations were ended, revenue to the treasury would double because ending tax deductions would bring in as much cash as does the market place. But it wont happen. Cains 9-9-9 tax plan is a joke. If you are in a state that doesnt have a sales tax, like New Hampshire, then you got one%. tax. Bachmanns only plan is to rip Obamacare to shreds. Problem is that Obamacare is now a federal law. Presidents cant tear up the document and declare it null and void. Apparently Bachmann missed that 8th grade civics lesson about the three equal branches of government. If all the right-wing hoopla about social issues isnt scary enough, the lets bomb Iran group is even scarier. Romney, Perry, Cain, Bachmann, the Newtster all declare that they will not permit Iran to have the bomb. Thats wonderful rhetoric when pandering for the vote, but come January 21, 2013, one of these what? Past American presidents, both Republican and Democrats, have not prevented Russia, China, India, or Pakistan from acquiring the bomb, but one or all of these right-wingers are going to whup up on those Iranians. Herman Cain is going to show China a thing or two. Someone should inform Cain, if that is possible, that China is our banker and trading partner. Bravado abounds among the Republican candidates for president, but there is a lack of common sense and just plain smarts. Get the hook. COXS CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military

It is truly an ecumenical day without sectarian divide. To fully celebrate Thanksgiving, you do not have to belong to any particular religious group or tradition, or for that matter, to belong to any religious group or tradition. No costumes or expensive purchases required. No loud music or forced late-night gaiety or painful next-morning hangover. Happy Thanksgiving. Even in this fourth consecutive winter of economic discontent and dislocation, I believe there are many reasons to be thankful on Nov. 24, 2011.

Whats the difference between a raven and a crow, and why does the former have such a bad reputation? L. K., Selma, AL Ravens and crows are cousins, you might say, both from the family Corvidae, but the black sheep of the family, probably because of its sheer size and darkness of plumage. The common raven (Corvus corax) can be half a foot longer than a crow, spanning about 26 inches in length, whereas the average length of the common American crow (Cor vus brachyrhynchos) is about 20 inches. Ravens have thicker beaks than crows; sport wedge-shape, rather than fan-shape, tails; and emit lower, hoarser calls. Ravens are the largest birds of the crow family and are typicallywellravenous when it comes to feeding. Theyre scavengers and pests, but they do not gather in large groups as crows sometimes do, preferring, instead, to remain alone or in pairs. Theyve come to be seen as birds of bad omens, denoting ill luck or even death. Some say that the with the tendency of ravens to follow armies or pestilence, hoping to feast on corpses. In one old myth, it was a raven that in formed Apollo of the faithlessness of one of his nymphs. For this, Apollo blacked the raven oer, And bid him prate in his white plumes no more. (Evi dently, the raven was formerly as white as a swan.) Other old myths depict the raven as prophetic. Although crows do not share the ominous reputation that ravens do, they can be just as much of a pest. All crows can be thieves of small, bright objects, much like magpiesanother crow cousin, along with blue jays, jackdaws, and rooks. Crows have been known to ruin new plantings of corn, as well as to make a meal of mature corn as it ripens in the Yet, crows are thought to have their strong points, as well. Experts tell us that they are among the most intelligent of birds. Some have been taught to talk, like parrots, and to perform tricks.Has it always been a custom to celebrate birthdays? F. N., Cincinnati, OHIn the distant past, say before 4000 B.C., the human race didnt have a system to keep track of time, so celebrating birthdays was a problem. Humans had to invent calendars first. Even after they did, for a long time only kings celebrated their birthdays because someone kept track of when they were born. No one recorded the births of common people. In Greek culture, the heads of important families celebrated their birthdays, but few others. The common practice today of including cakes and birthday popular in the mid1800s, shortly after sending Christmas greeting cards came into style.

We thought we were going to lose her when she got her head stuck in a chain length fence and cut herself badly, but with a lot of doctoring, she pulled through. Anna and Camy think they should go every where with each other. You cant let Camy outside without Anna opening the door and checking on her. Camy loves to do tricks for Anna as long as she gets a treat in return. They enjoy car rides in Annas car seat. You never know when Camy is with you until its a little too late! We have never been able to get Camy to bring a ball back to us but we have found her and Anna in the yard playing fetch together. They really enjoy each other and the family enjoys watching them together. Anna is the daughter of Devin Bruner and Amanda Merkison of Bristol. Anna & Camybirthday, they had a break in the case. Seven years later, Major Roman Wood is driving by and sees Mosley walking down the street behind the courthouse, Smith said about Mondays arrest. Wood knew Mosley was a suspect in the robbery and was also aware he was wanted on a child support warrant. As Mosley got to his mothers house, Wood pulled up and handcuffed him and took him into custody. Then I got a judge to give me a search warrant to collect a DNA swab from his cheek, said Smith, who personally delivered the sample to the Pensacola FDLE lab at 8 a.m. Tuesday. He got a call back from the lab around 4:30 p.m. and learned Mosleys DNA matched a sample found on some of the clothing. Im not sure which piece of evidence it was. I think it was a stocking he used as a mask, Smith said. Mosley is being charged with robbery with a firearm and is awaiting first appearance before a judge Wednesday morning.

Page 20 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 23, 2011 GARDENINGEEnjoy fall colors by planting the right treesTravelers often journey north during autumn on a mission to see fall color. Some years they are rewarded with spectacular views. Sometimes the display is muted. Have you ever wondered the basis of the beautiful colors? With the change in seasons, chemical processes that occur in tree leaves cause them to change color. It all centers on a pigment known as chlorophyll. If you remember your high school science, then youll connect chlorophyll with the process of photosynthesis. What you may not remember is that there are often other pigments, or colors, in a leaf. We dont see these other pigments most of the year because they are masked by the chlorophyll pigment. As the days get shorter and temperatures cool off, photosynthesis slows. Since the chlorophyll is no longer needed, it breaks down leaving the other colors visible. The yellows, oranges and reds that you see in the fall were really present in the leaves all along. Temperature, water, light and chlorophyll residue all determine just how bright and striking the colors will be. These factors also determine how long the color will hang around. Sunny warm days, cool nights and occasional rains produce the best fall colors. While Florida isnt known for its spectacular autumn leaf displays, we do have several wonderful trees that you can plant for great fall color. tive tree found throughout Florida.

Seeds can also be carried to other new sites by water. Floridians can help slow by removing these hard-to-kill trees from their properties. Start planting the right trees now, and you could be enjoying great fall color in years to come! by Theresa Friday, Horticulture Extension Agent, Santa Rosa County Fall is an important time to care for your lawn Professional Landcare Network reminds consumers that fall is an important time of year to care for your lawn and provides the following lawn care tips. For more information specific to your local area, you should consult with your local lawn care professional or county cooperative extension agent.M MOWInNG YOUR LAWnN Its important to keep your grass 2 to 2-1/2 inches tall throughout the fall. If your grass gets much taller (more than 3 inches) it will mat, and this could lead to winter lawn disease problems such as snow mold. If you cut it shorter than 2 inches, youll severely limit its ability to make and store food for growth in the spring.R RAKInNG LEAVES Lawn raking in the fall removes excess organic debris and can help maintain water quality. In winter, freezing and thawing can cause leaves, dead grass plants, and other organic debris to release soluble forms of phosphate (and nitrates). If these chemicals run off frozen ground during spring snow melt and early spring rains, they can end up in surface water. Keep grass clippings, leaf litter, and other organic debris off driveways, sidewalks, and streets.R RECYCLInNG LEAVES There are several options when it comes to disposing of fallen leaves. The preferred way is to compost them, because composting keeps leaves out of streets and storm sewers. You can also use fallen leaves, whole or chipped by a power mower, as winter mulch around rose bushes and landscape plants. Make several passes over fallen leaves on your lawn with a power mower, chopping enough to stay on the lawn without causing damage while providing nutrients for the grass. Another option would be to bag leaves for disposal by municipal authorities.W W ATERInNG YOUR LAWnN Even though temperatures might be cooler than in summer, your lawn still peratures reduce the need to water, but if it doesnt rain, your lawn will need supplemental watering since lawn grasses continue to grow throughout the fall. Go ahead and water if needed until the ground is cold and beginning to freeze. If you have an automatic irrigation system, avoid damage by having it blown out with compressed air before the water freezes in the pipes and sprinkler heads.

Big Bend Hospices Service of Remembrance is a non-denominational service that brings together Liberty County residents to honor the memories of loved ones during this very special time of the year. Attending the Service of Remembrance has become an annual community event, said Travia Cromartie, Community Resource Coordinator for Liberty County. The Service provides the community with a special time to honor the memories of loved ones who have died and to hearts. This years Service of Remembrance will feature music and words of comfort, and will conclude with a special candle lighting ceremony and passing of the candlelight in memory of loved ones. You do not have to have used Big Bend Hospice services nor does your loss have to have been recent. Each year area families take this time to pause during the busy holiday season and honor grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, friends and other loved ones. It has become a part of many peoples holiday tradition, Cromartie concluded. Following the service, the Big Bend Hospice Liberty Advisory Council will host a reception.

At Hurlburt we strive to have as little impact on the natural environment Slife, commander of the 1st Special Operations Wing. Although the bear-proof containers help us achieve that objective, the root cause of our success has been the cooperation and dedication our airmen and families on base have shown in using the tools Telesco said more and more communities are recognizing that by keeping items that attract bears secure, bears dont have a reason to hang around in their neighborhoods. Bears venture into these areas because theres something for them to eat thats easy to get to.

NOVEMBER 23, 2011 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 29 Ministry Center marks second year of operation; thrift shop funds food pantry for families in need by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorThe Calhoun Liberty Ministry Center celebrated its second anniversary Nov. 17 after two years of assisting needy families with food, clothing and household items through sales in its growing thrift shop along with donations from the community. Even after two years in operation, the shop is still full of surprises. There arent many things we havent had, said thrift shop manager Janice Malone. There are racks and racks of clothing including many name brand items. Malone points out customers have picked up pairs also had formal wear, including prom dresses, she said, which are also popular items. Tuesday afternoon the thrift mattress sets to its offerings, insize and one full size set. A lot of people are surprised we have furniture here, according to the shops manager. Its not uncommon for an item thats never even been taken out of the box to be donated to the Ministry Center. Some may be gifts that were never appreciated or items that lost their luster soon after being purchased. Theyve sold coffee pots, electric skillets and even an expresso machine for far below their value. From time to time, we even get golf clubs, she added. The biggest seller? Dishes, said Malone, and theyre always welcoming another set to add to their supply. appliances like crock pots and they go real fast, she said. Some items dont stay in the store long because eagle-eyed customers notice when volunteers bring in something new. Theyll stop and get it from us before we get it on the shelves, said Malone.The shop also has many books, videos and DVDs as well as lots of childrens toys, often in mint condition she said. But it takes a lot of work to collect, sort and organize the donations and keep the centers food pantry stocked. A group of 160 volunteers take turns keeping things humming at the center. The centers main goal is to provide free food to needy families through the food pantry. eration, the Ministry Center has provided 6,009 families with over 200,000 pounds of food. The center has given clothing to 1,054 inmates that were released from Liberty and Calhoun Correctional Institutions. Counselors reported that 28 spiritual decisions were made by clients during the initial interview process. Everyone is invited to stop and shop at the thrift store. Even if youre not looking to buy, the thrift store is a great place to pass on items that could be of use to others. Donations of good clean usable clothing, household items and furniture are always welcome. For more information, contact the Ministry Center at 674-1818. The center is located along SR 20 in Blountstown near the Trammell Bridge.

The decision came during day one of the two-day November Commission meeting in Key Largo. The changes, which include additional protections for gag grouper while i ncreasing the bag limit for red grouper, will make state protections consistent with gag and red grouper federal rules in the Gulf of Mexico. We are listening and are very concerned about the economy, jobs and managing resources for longevity as well, Commissioner Ron Bergeron said following stake holder conversation. Changes for red grouper will take effect Dec. 23 in Gulf of Mexico state waters (excluding Monroe County) and will include increasing the recreational bag limit from two to Commissioners also voted to continue the current gag grouper closure in Gulf of Mexico state waters (excluding Monroe County) into 2012. The closure was set to expire at the end of 2011. This measure will help the state achieve consistency with gag grouper management efforts affecting federal Gulf waters. The FWC believes applying the same recreational open and closed harvest seasons for gag grouper in Gulf state waters as in federal offshore waters would maximize and charter boat operators along Floridas Gulf coast.
