The two Violet Manning and Calesta Manasco were later discovered on surveillance video leaving the jail around 12:15 a.m., according to Lt. Brigham Shuler. He said the women escaped by using medical tape to hold cardboard over the magnetic locking bolts of the jail door, a trick that prevented the system from recognizing the security breach. Manning was due to be sentenced Monday for a previous escape and methamphetamine charges. She pleaded guilty and was ordered to serve six years after the judge sentenced her to three years on each charge to run concurrently. Investigators are not yet sure how the two women got to Wewahitchka from Bristol. At 5:29 p.m. on Oct. 20, Manning ran out of the Liberty County Jail where she was being processed following her arrest in Blountstown on methamphetamine charges. She was found about 50 yards from the jail, laying on the ground by a fence. She was returned to custody within ten minutes and charged with escape.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL DECEMBER 7, 2011Punitive politics showcase Americas mean streakMy sharp-tongued old grandmother had a saying for most everything. When hearing about someone acting like a mule kicking out the stall, her comment would be, Well, everyone has a mean We have found Americas mean streak. No surprise here, but the mean streak is in politicians and their punitive politics and policies. At the moment, Americas mean streak belongs to right-wing politicians and the extremist groups that Right-wingers think that poor people are leeches on society. Its bad enough to be poor, out of work with a bleak future, but being poor in Newt (The Grinch) Gingrichs America would be even worse. There are plenty of poor people in America. The World Hunger Education Services states that in 2010 there were 17.2 million American families without sufcans living in poverty. This number is up from 37.3 without health insurance. The US Department of Agriculture reports that 21 million students receive subsidized lunches, up from had four-year increases of 25 percent or more which increases at the pace of population growth. country like America to have this many people in povproach, but thats not as easily done as said. Because of the collapse of the real estate market, the majority of lost jobs are in the building and construction trades. So, what kind of job is a 50-year old carpenter or mason going to get when they go to the job fairs and employment agencies? There is nothing wrong with the trades. There is nothing wrong with being a carpenter or mason. These people are skilled in their craft and build the houses we live in. But until the real estate market reaches equilibrium in supply and demand, there wont be jobs for the building trades.CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Poor people, people on welfare, people on food stamps are all targets of people like Gingrich. Get those school kids on welfare swinging mops in the school bathrooms. Pay them a buck a day. So, in Newts right-wing view, its OK for poor kids to clean toilets for the rest of the kids. Newt and his right-wing friends are quick to demagogue people receiving food stamps. No doubt that some abuse the food stamp program, but some doctors and HMOs also defraud the MedNewt says that millionaires get food stamps. If Newt knows a millionaire getting food stamps and doesnt report this fraud to the authorities, then he is aiding and abetting a criminal. Newt says that people take trips to Hawaii on their food stamp money. I doubt that because I do know something about food stamps. A friend is on food card and his account are limited to the purchase of bafor the state agency. Since Tea Party Republicans were elected in 2010 and now dominate the House of Representatives and about half of the state legislatures, there has been a concerted Republican effort to demonize public workers, particularly union workers. Republican dominated state legislatures have instituted laws that suppresses the vote, particularly in areas populated by Democrat voters. State legislatures are legislative districts are redrawn with the intent to gain seats in the House of Representatives in the best inter est of the political party doing the drawing. But punitive politics and policies are not entirely the efforts of right-wingers. Senate Democrats joined Senate Republicans and voted for an amendment to the defense bill that permits the authorities to jail susnitely without due process of law. No habeas corpus, the Rule of Law doesnt apply. effort should it become law, but the scary part is that the law was passed in the United States Senate with bipartisan support. Its Americas mean streak emphasizing punitive politics and policies. COMMENTARY Late Night LaughsA RECAP OF RECENT OBSER V ATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. JIMMY F ALLON JAY LENO dashian.

PETS AND THEIR PEOPLE IS SPONSORED BYWeve got the feed you need to keep your animals happy and healthy!CATTLE HORSES DOGS CATS BIRDS and more.AND THEIRPETS PEOPLEI love to give food gifts for the holidays, but worry that others might think me a cheap skate. Is there a rule of thumb? G. C., Meridian, MS In these days of rush, rush, rush, anyone who takes the time to bake cookies, or can pickles, or soak Christmas puddings has our vote for most thoughtful gift. Give of yourself, as the old saying goes, and thats as close to a rule of thumb as youre apt to get. If your skills are in the kitchen, so be it. If money is really of no issue, and youre determined to add something more to the gift, you holiday-patterned cloth napkin to cover the plate of cookies, or search the antique shops for a pretty single spoon to go with some jams. Pretty glass jars or candy dishes or old-fashioned tins can offer a step up from the disposable plate or simple cellophane. Baskets add a little charm to a loaf of home-baked bread. Fancy wire-edged ribbons offer an extra touch, as well, and can even hold an inexpensive or nament as a bonus gift. A pair of candles, sprig of fresh herbs, or your favorite recipe on a card offer value-added gifts, as well. Mostly, though, we encourage you to resist your simple gifts. Many a little makes a mickle, as the old-timers said. If you dont know what that means, youre not alone! The gist, however, is that many small things make a great one. Small gifts are often gifts of the heart, so do not underestimate them.What is the meaning of a dog watch aboard ship? Is it the same as a mid night watch or ghost watch? D. L., Covington, KY No, the dogwatch comes between 4 and 6 P.M., and then another dogwatch follows between 6 and 8 P.M. The word is a corruption of dodge-watch, so-called because the two-hour shifts (instead of the normal four hours) were meant to disrupt, or dodge, the scheduling of watches so that the same sailors did not always sit for the same shifts. Starting at noon and going around the clock, there would be the afternoon watch (12 noon watch (2 hours), the second dogwatch (2 hours), P.M. to midnight), the middle watch (midnight to 4 A.M.), the morning watch (4 A.M. to 8 A.M.), watch (8 A.M. to noon), making seven watches altogether. You may have heard the phrase between dog and wolf, meaning the evening dusk or being betwixt and between, neither daylight nor dark. Some call this time the blind mans holiday, the thought being that a blind man can see as well as anyone during these hours. Are some cheeses better for your health than others?R. P., Kokomo, ID In choosing a cheese, there are various factors to consider, including taste, purity, age, fat content, and suitability for your pur poses. If you happen to have lactose intoler ance, any cheese is likely to upset your digestion, of course. Many of the most commonly used cheeses, such as cheddar, Monterey Jack, Swiss, and Gouda, are called full-fat cheeses. This isnt necessarily bad, but it means that they are made with whole milk and are apt to have between 7 and 9 grams of fat per ounce. If you choose one of these cheeses, you may over your recommended daily intake for fat. With some careful planning, however, you can balance these choices by cutting down on meats, high-fat salad dressings, or other fatty foods in that same meal. Or, you may choose to eat these cheeses in smaller quantities than other lower-fat choices. stronger-tasting cheeses, such as Gorgonzola, Saga, and Cotswold, is that we tend to eat them in small quantities. Cheeses such as mozzarella and feta are naturally low in fat, with only about 6 grams per ounce. These and other cheeses such as American, Colby, cottage cheese, and cream cheese may also be available in reducedfat, low-fat, or nonfat versions. These categories are successively less fattening, being made with skim, low-fat, or nonfat milk products. Reducedfat versions are required to have one-quarter less fat than the regular product, while low-fat cheeses should not exceed 3 grams of fat per ounce. If fat content is your main concern, these alternatives may suit you well. Keep in mind, however, that the lower the fat content in the cheese, the more the texture will change. Flavor and the melting properties of the cheese will also be affected by a reduction in the fat content. DEC. 5, MONDAY Moon at apogee. Animator and theme park developer Walt Disney born, 1901.

by Katie TewOn Tuesday, Nov. 29, the culinary students at BHS were visited by a professor from Keiser University in Tallahassee. We were impressed by what he had to say. The information he shared concerning Keiser and other colleges helped us to realize the wide range of colleges available to students who were motivated and willing to work toward their goals. The professor impressed upon us that we can take something that is ordinary and make it extraordinary. He demonstrated this by preparing a phenomenal quiche for the class. He knew how to keep us entertained as he shared with the class. The students in our class commented on the fact that he had a cheer ful, loud and clear voice that kept their attention. The professor informed us that we could go to www. ships. He emphasized the fact that there are many scholarships available. The culinary students really enjoyed the quiche and were surprised at how easy it was to prepare. We were left with the impression that the professor really cared about us and our future and that we can do anything that we truly set our minds to. The BHS students enjoyed having the professor share with us and would not mind seeing him again.

Come Home to Rehab GARDENING There is a proverb that states, "Tell me the facts and Ill learn. Tell me the truth and Ill believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever. Im amazed by the number of plant stories. And, its true; I do tend to remember the stories better than I do the facts. This is a story about a ers that many people call pinks. Pinks are not called that because of their color, although many are pink colored. All pinks look closely at the edge of each petal, it looks like it has been cut with pinking shearsthose scissors that produce a zigzag edge. Dianthus has the common name of pinks. From the car nation to the sweet William, pinks are a diverse group with new species and new hybrids being introduced annually. D. barbatus is often called sweet William and honors William, the duke of Cumberland, who crushed an uprising by Bonnie Prince Charlie. Sweet William is a true biennial, requiring it to go it self-sows so easily that the plant seems to be a constant in the garden. The annual pink is D. chinensis. The Because this group has little tolerance to heat, they should be used as a cool-season annual. Plants will often melt after a few hot spells in the spring. There is now an explosion of hybrid pinks created by crossing D. chinensis and D. barbatus. These hybrids offer far better performance in the garden. Some of the new hybrids are taller-growing and There are many hybrid series that include a variety of colors. For example, the Super Parfait series includes Raspberry Super Parfait which is crimson with dark eyes and Strawberry Super with dark eyes. The Telstar series was chosen as a Louisiana Select plant. These delightful plants give outstanding colors in scarlet, pink, purple, salmon and purple picotee, meaning that the edge of the addition to their cheerful colors, they also have an enticing fragrance. New cultivars are constantly being introduced. Some new varieties are being grown to provide some height to landscape beds. These include the new additions to the Devon Cottage series of Amethyst and Waterloo Sunset. Four varieties have been added to the Scent First series. These include Romance, Sugar Plum, Passion, and Devon Flavia. Pinks perform best in full sunlight noon shade. Flowerbed soils need to be loose, well-drained and fertile. They do well at a soil pH thats slightly acid to slightly alkaline. Pinks will not tolerate wet soil conditions, so it is important to adequately prepare a landscape bed and irrigate properly. You can plant pinks from October through February on a 10to 12-inch spacing to achieve a full landscape effect. At planting, or shortly thereafter, broadcast an application of a slow-release fertilizer over the entire bed. Depending on plant performance, a second light application Pinks usually last well into midor late spring in North Florida and can even grow and bloom through the summer with limited success. Although some are perennial, its best to treat them as an annual cool-season plant.

Dont sit on any resources, including your time. Get active and be productive. TAURUS Apr 21/May 21 You may need to call in a few favors from friends, Taurus. There is a hurdle you need to get over and it likely will not get done alone. Pisces could be the person you seek. GEMINI May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, sometimes others simply dont understand you, and deep down inside you may just like it that way. You continue to bring an air of mystery to the week.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, its wise to open your eyes a little wider and see where things are going right or wrong for you. Making the same choices over and over wont lead to progress. LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, a change of scenery could help bring a new perspective to something that has been on your mind. Get out of town for a few days and enjoy the respite. SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, its time to put that creative energy to good use. Now could be the time to spearhead a project that has your name written all over it. Start drawing up ideas.

She was later transferred to the womens dorm of the Liberty County Jail. Terry was putting trash in an outside container by the road when Task Force members arrived at the home around 7:30 p.m. last month. A Dollar General shopping bag with an empty pack of lithium batteries and a lightbulb that had been converted into a meth pipe was later found in the garbage can. Task Force members spoke with Williams and told him they had a tip that he was making methamphetamine. Williams said he messed around with meth a month or two ago, and had been around it two weeks ago. He said he was thinking about trying to cook meth but stated that he had not done it yet. During a search of the home, ingredients and supplies needed to make meth were found, including rubbing alcohol, cold pill blister packs, containers with clear liquids and a glass jar with a hose attached to the top. Those items and more were found in four rooms, including the kitchen, the bathroom, the living room and a toolroom. Burned pieces of tinfoil with suspected meth residue were found throughout the residence as well as in Terrys purse, which was in the living room. Terry admitted to the Task Force that she assisted Williams in making meth by crushing pseudoephedrine pills.

The two Violet Manning and Calesta Manasco were later discovered on surveillance video leaving the jail around 12:15 a.m., according to Lt. Brigham Shuler. He said the women escaped by using medical tape to hold cardboard over the magnetic locking bolts of the jail door, a trick that prevented the system from recognizing the security breach. Manning was due to be sentenced Monday for a previous escape and methamphetamine charges. She pleaded guilty and was ordered to serve six years after the judge sentenced her to three years on each charge to run concurrently. Investigators are not yet sure how the two women got to Wewahitchka from Bristol. At 5:29 p.m. on Oct. 20, Manning ran out of the Liberty County Jail where she was being processed following her arrest in Blountstown on methamphetamine charges. She was found about 50 yards from the jail, laying on the ground by a fence. She was returned to custody within ten minutes and charged with escape.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL DECEMBER 7, 2011Punitive politics showcase Americas mean streakMy sharp-tongued old grandmother had a saying for most everything. When hearing about someone acting like a mule kicking out the stall, her comment would be, Well, everyone has a mean We have found Americas mean streak. No surprise here, but the mean streak is in politicians and their punitive politics and policies. At the moment, Americas mean streak belongs to right-wing politicians and the extremist groups that Right-wingers think that poor people are leeches on society. Its bad enough to be poor, out of work with a bleak future, but being poor in Newt (The Grinch) Gingrichs America would be even worse. There are plenty of poor people in America. The World Hunger Education Services states that in 2010 there were 17.2 million American families without sufcans living in poverty. This number is up from 37.3 without health insurance. The US Department of Agriculture reports that 21 million students receive subsidized lunches, up from had four-year increases of 25 percent or more which increases at the pace of population growth. country like America to have this many people in povproach, but thats not as easily done as said. Because of the collapse of the real estate market, the majority of lost jobs are in the building and construction trades. So, what kind of job is a 50-year old carpenter or mason going to get when they go to the job fairs and employment agencies? There is nothing wrong with the trades. There is nothing wrong with being a carpenter or mason. These people are skilled in their craft and build the houses we live in. But until the real estate market reaches equilibrium in supply and demand, there wont be jobs for the building trades.CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Poor people, people on welfare, people on food stamps are all targets of people like Gingrich. Get those school kids on welfare swinging mops in the school bathrooms. Pay them a buck a day. So, in Newts right-wing view, its OK for poor kids to clean toilets for the rest of the kids. Newt and his right-wing friends are quick to demagogue people receiving food stamps. No doubt that some abuse the food stamp program, but some doctors and HMOs also defraud the MedNewt says that millionaires get food stamps. If Newt knows a millionaire getting food stamps and doesnt report this fraud to the authorities, then he is aiding and abetting a criminal. Newt says that people take trips to Hawaii on their food stamp money. I doubt that because I do know something about food stamps. A friend is on food card and his account are limited to the purchase of bafor the state agency. Since Tea Party Republicans were elected in 2010 and now dominate the House of Representatives and about half of the state legislatures, there has been a concerted Republican effort to demonize public workers, particularly union workers. Republican dominated state legislatures have instituted laws that suppresses the vote, particularly in areas populated by Democrat voters. State legislatures are legislative districts are redrawn with the intent to gain seats in the House of Representatives in the best interest of the political party doing the drawing. But punitive politics and policies are not entirely the efforts of right-wingers. Senate Democrats joined Senate Republicans and voted for an amendment to the defense bill that permits the authorities to jail susnitely without due process of law. No habeas corpus, the Rule of Law doesnt apply. effort should it become law, but the scary part is that the law was passed in the United States Senate with bipartisan support. Its Americas mean streak emphasizing punitive politics and policies. COMMENTARY Late Night LaughsA recaRECAP oOF recentRECENT obOBSerER Vation ATIONS by BY lateLATE niNIGhtHT tV TV hoHOStTS.

Is there a rule of thumb? G. C., Meridian, MS In these days of rush, rush, rush, anyone who takes the time to bake cookies, or can pickles, or soak Christmas puddings has our vote for most thoughtful gift. Give of yourself, as the old saying goes, and thats as close to a rule of thumb as youre apt to get. If your skills are in the kitchen, so be it. If money is really of no issue, and youre determined to add something more to the gift, you holiday-patterned cloth napkin to cover the plate of cookies, or search the antique shops for a pretty single spoon to go with some jams. Pretty glass jars or candy dishes or old-fashioned tins can offer a step up from the disposable plate or simple cellophane. Baskets add a little charm to a loaf of home-baked bread. Fancy wire-edged ribbons offer an extra touch, as well, and can even hold an inexpensive ornament as a bonus gift. A pair of candles, sprig of fresh herbs, or your favorite recipe on a card offer value-added gifts, as well. Mostly, though, we encourage you to resist your simple gifts. Many a little makes a mickle, as the old-timers said. If you dont know what that means, youre not alone! The gist, however, is that many small things make a great one. Small gifts are often gifts of the heart, so do not underestimate them.What is the meaning of a dog watch aboard ship? Is it the same as a midnight watch or ghost watch? D. L., Covington, KY No, the dogwatch comes between 4 and 6 P.M., and then another dogwatch follows between 6 and 8 P.M. The word is a corruption of dodge-watch, so-called because the two-hour shifts (instead of the normal four hours) were meant to disrupt, or dodge, the scheduling of watches so that the same sailors did not always sit for the same shifts. Starting at noon and going around the clock, there would be the afternoon watch (12 noon watch (2 hours), the second dogwatch (2 hours), P.M. to midnight), the middle watch (midnight to 4 A.M.), the morning watch (4 A.M. to 8 A.M.), watch (8 A.M. to noon), making seven watches altogether. You may have heard the phrase between dog and wolf, meaning the evening dusk or being betwixt and between, neither daylight nor dark. Some call this time the blind mans holiday, the thought being that a blind man can see as well as anyone during these hours. Are some cheeses better for your health than others?R. P., Kokomo, ID In choosing a cheese, there are various factors to consider, including taste, purity, age, fat content, and suitability for your purposes. If you happen to have lactose intoler ance, any cheese is likely to upset your digestion, of course. Many of the most commonly used cheeses, such as cheddar, Monterey Jack, Swiss, and Gouda, are called full-fat cheeses. This isnt necessarily bad, but it means that they are made with whole milk and are apt to have between 7 and 9 grams of fat per ounce. If you choose one of these cheeses, you may over your recommended daily intake for fat. With some careful planning, however, you can balance these choices by cutting down on meats, high-fat salad dressings, or other fatty foods in that same meal. Or, you may choose to eat these cheeses in smaller quantities than other lower-fat choices. stronger-tasting cheeses, such as Gorgonzola, Saga, and Cotswold, is that we tend to eat them in small quantities. Cheeses such as mozzarella and feta are naturally low in fat, with only about 6 grams per ounce. These and other cheeses such as American, Colby, cottage cheese, and cream cheese may also be available in reducedfat, low-fat, or nonfat versions. These categories are successively less fattening, being made with skim, low-fat, or nonfat milk products. Reducedfat versions are required to have one-quarter less fat than the regular product, while low-fat cheeses should not exceed 3 grams of fat per ounce. If fat content is your main concern, these alternatives may suit you well. Keep in mind, however, that the lower the fat content in the cheese, the more the texture will change. Flavor and the melting properties of the cheese will also be affected by a reduction in the fat content. DEC. 5, MONDAY Moon at apogee. Animator and theme park developer Walt Disney born, 1901.

by Katie TewOn Tuesday, Nov. 29, the culinary students at BHS were visited by a professor from Keiser University in Tallahassee. We were impressed by what he had to say. The information he shared concerning Keiser and other colleges helped us to realize the wide range of colleges available to students who were motivated and willing to work toward their goals. The professor impressed upon us that we can take something that is ordinary and make it extraordinary. He demonstrated this by preparing a phenomenal quiche for the class. He knew how to keep us entertained as he shared with the class. The students in our class commented on the fact that he had a cheerful, loud and clear voice that kept their attention. The professor informed us that we could go to www. ships. He emphasized the fact that there are many scholarships available. The culinary students really enjoyed the quiche and were surprised at how easy it was to prepare. We were left with the impression that the professor really cared about us and our future and that we can do anything that we truly set our minds to. The BHS students enjoyed having the professor share with us and would not mind seeing him again.

Come Home to Rehab GARDENING There is a proverb that states, "Tell me the facts and Ill learn. Tell me the truth and Ill believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever. Im amazed by the number of plant stories. And, its true; I do tend to remember the stories better than I do the facts. This is a story about a ers that many people call pinks. Pinks are not called that because of their color, although many are pink colored. All pinks look closely at the edge of each petal, it looks like it has been cut with pinking shearsthose scissors that produce a zigzag edge. Dianthus has the common name of pinks. From the carnation to the sweet William, pinks are a diverse group with new species and new hybrids being introduced annually. D. barbatus is often called sweet William and honors William, the duke of Cumberland, who crushed an uprising by Bonnie Prince Charlie. Sweet William is a true biennial, requiring it to go it self-sows so easily that the plant seems to be a constant in the garden. The annual pink is D. chinensis. The Because this group has little tolerance to heat, they should be used as a cool-season annual. Plants will often melt after a few hot spells in the spring. There is now an explosion of hybrid pinks created by crossing D. chinensis and D. barbatus. These hybrids offer far better performance in the garden. Some of the new hybrids are taller-growing and There are many hybrid series that include a variety of colors. For example, the Super Parfait series includes Raspberry Super Parfait which is crimson with dark eyes and Strawberry Super with dark eyes. The Telstar series was chosen as a Louisiana Select plant. These delightful plants give outstanding colors in scarlet, pink, purple, salmon and purple picotee, meaning that the edge of the addition to their cheerful colors, they also have an enticing fragrance. New cultivars are constantly being introduced. Some new varieties are being grown to provide some height to landscape beds. These include the new additions to the Devon Cottage series of Amethyst and Waterloo Sunset. Four varieties have been added to the Scent First series. These include Romance, Sugar Plum, Passion, and Devon Flavia. Pinks perform best in full sunlight noon shade. Flowerbed soils need to be loose, well-drained and fertile. They do well at a soil pH thats slightly acid to slightly alkaline. Pinks will not tolerate wet soil conditions, so it is important to adequately prepare a landscape bed and irrigate properly. You can plant pinks from October through February on a 10to 12-inch spacing to achieve a full landscape effect. At planting, or shortly thereafter, broadcast an application of a slow-release fertilizer over the entire bed. Depending on plant performance, a second light application Pinks usually last well into midor late spring in North Florida and can even grow and bloom through the summer with limited success. Although some are perennial, its best to treat them as an annual cool-season plant.

She was later transferred to the womens dorm of the Liberty County Jail. Terry was putting trash in an outside container by the road when Task Force members arrived at the home around 7:30 p.m. last month. A Dollar General shopping bag with an empty pack of lithium batteries and a lightbulb that had been converted into a meth pipe was later found in the garbage can. Task Force members spoke with Williams and told him they had a tip that he was making methamphetamine. Williams said he messed around with meth a month or two ago, and had been around it two weeks ago. He said he was thinking about trying to cook meth but stated that he had not done it yet. During a search of the home, ingredients and supplies needed to make meth were found, including rubbing alcohol, cold pill blister packs, containers with clear liquids and a glass jar with a hose attached to the top. Those items and more were found in four rooms, including the kitchen, the bathroom, the living room and a toolroom. Burned pieces of tinfoil with suspected meth residue were found throughout the residence as well as in Terrys purse, which was in the living room. Terry admitted to the Task Force that she assisted Williams in making meth by crushing pseudoephedrine pills.
