(850) 222-7199 Two men wanted on warrants didnt make it easy for deputies from the Liberty County Sheriffs Office when they went to take them into custody last week. Both men were reportedly highly intoxicated and showed signs of being under the time, according to the arrest report. Jeremy Proctor, 39, was wanted on a probation violation. Jason Scott, 37, was wanted on a domestic battery charge. Sgt. Jamie Shiver and Deputies Chad Smith and Bobby Revell went to a Franklin Whitaker Road residence to pick up the men around 9 p.m. on Dec. 20. They drove up to find Proctor in the front yard. Shiver caught up with Proctor and spoke with him as the two deputies walked toward them. Proctor then began walking away from Shiver. When Shiver told him to stay where he was because he needed to speak with him, Proctor replied that he wasnt going to talk with him and continued walking. As Proctor started up the steps to the residence, Shiver grabbed him by the back of his jeans, pulled him back into the yard and told him he was under arrest. When Proctor pulled away and resisted being handcuffed. He was told that a taser would be deployed if he did not cooperate. He continued to resist and was tased on his right side with a hands behind his back, he refused and got up off the ground. He was then tased a second time. Deputies handcuffed him and put him in a patrol car. When the deputies entered the home, they found Scott sleeping in a back bedroom. When told he was being arrested, he refused to get up and would not move his hands from under the covers so that deputies could be sure he did not have a weapon. After Scott ignored repeated orders to get out of the bed, deputies pulled the covers away and attempted to put him in handcuffs. Scott became combative and kept pulling his hands able to get him handcuffed with his hands in front. When told to get out of the bed, Scott refused to move. Deputies pulled him off He continued to resist as deputies started to walk him out of the bedroom and into a hallway. Scott grabbed at door frames and dragged his feet to impede deputies efforts. As they entered the living room, deputies put under control before escorting him to a patrol car. Scott kept pulling away from depu ties as they took him outside. While waiting for the patrol car to be un locked, Scott became very irate and combative, according to the arrest report. He knocked Sgt. Shiver back wards, causing him to lose his balance. Scott was put on the ground as deputies tried to get him under control. He then refused to get up, forcing the men to pick him up. As Revell attempted to pick up Scott by his feet, Scott started kicking and hit the deputys left leg. After ignoring repeated orders to comply, Revell used his taser and hit Scott in the right shoulder with both probes. Scott continued to be com bative and was tased a second time, at which point deputies were able to put him in the patrol car. Both men were taken to the Liberty County Jail. Scott was charged with resisting arrest with violence. Proctor was charged with resisting arrest with out violence. Bond was set at $7,500 for Proctor. Scotts bond was $10,000.Man charged with retail theft for taking $4.99 item from storeA Blountstown man is charged with retail theft after a store surveillance camera caught him taking an item valued as less than $5, according to a report from the Blountstown Police Department. Shane Tolliver Whitfield, 43, of Blountstown, was sitting at the counter at the NAPA store on Main Street around 10:37 a.m. Dec. 11 when the clerk went on camera reaching over the counter and picking up a $4.99 pair of pliers which he then slipped into his right front pants pocket. He then walked out of the store without paying, according to the report. He was taken into custody Dec. 22 and later given a conditional release.

His response was that he would send the capital police or U.S. Marshals to arrest the judge and force him or her to appear before Congress for an interrogation. Now we know the real NewtNewt the dictator. In spite of all of his pseudo-intellectual blathering, he apparently doesnt understand the Constitutional separation of powers mean ing that the three branches of government are indepen dent and equal in stature. The Rule of Law is the bedrock of American democ racy, and for a presidential candidate to state that he would violate the Constitution because he doesnt like a judges ruling says much about the candidate and the person. Evil, dictatorial and deceitful comes to mind. Americas representative government is dysfunctional. Ive read a lot of history books, and I dont think that the Founders had any idea of what America would be like today when they wrote the Constitution. I think that the Founders thought that elected representatives today would do what they were elected to do which is represent their constituents in the best interest of the common good for all citi zens.The representative government James Madison and the others envisioned has been corrupted by money.

COMMENTARYEven with softball questions and 30-second answers, the Republican presidential debates have been a worthwhile effort. The debates provided the American people with some understanding as to what the candidates think and believe. We know that railing about activist judges is a staple of the right-wing red meat diet. If conservatives dont like a decision by one of the federal courts, then the judge must be an activ ist judge that is making law rather than interpreting the law. I think that the Supreme Court was wrong in its ruling on Citizens United, which in its simplest form establishes that corporations have the same political rights as do people. While disagreeing with the Court, I dont think it was the result of right-wing acthat the judges ponder these issues and refer to consider able case law before render ing a verdict. The more these presidential candidates talk, the more we learn about them. Newt Gingrich talks a lot. From his comments on a Sunday talk show, we learn that Gingrich would attempt to wield dictatorial powers as president. When asked what he would do if he disagreed with a judicial ruling, his response was that he would have the judge brought before the Congress to explain his or her decision.

DECEMBER 28, 2011 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 Are House Republicans really going to raise taxes? COMMENTARYWASHINGTON House members should enjoy their Christmas at home because chances are they will be back in Washington soon to pass the payroll tax cut extension they walked away from in a burst of partisan pique. When the Wall Street Journal says the GOP is doing something so boneheaded they are likely to reelect President Obama before the election year even gets underway, House Republicans will have to take notice. What little time they get to spend at home will get them an earful. Their protestations that they are looking out for the Social Security Trust Fund, and are worried about the uncer tainty caused by a two-month extension of the tax cut, arent cutting it with the general public. This time the GOPs brinkmanship translates into real money, and the voters are ready to hold them accountable. Republican leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) negotiated a compromise bill that received 39 Republican votes and passed the Senate with a whopping 89 votes, a rarity in todays partisan climate. But it wasnt good enough for the Tea Party freshmen in the House, who boisterously likened themselves to the heroes of the movie Braveheart, which starred Mel Gibson and depicted the Scottish rebellion that won independence from the British. Many of these Tea Party legislators have never held elec that goes with legislating. They see every compromise as a sell-out, and would rather shortchange 160 million Americans relying on a continued tax break, and put the economy at risk, than yield on their principles and give President Obama a victory. McConnell has privately warned his counterparts in the House that they are jeopardizing their majority, and endangering the partys ability to take the Senate and the White House in next years election. The decision of the House Republicans to leave Washington without voting on the exten sion of the payroll cut echoes the GOPs disastrous shutdown of the government in 1995 when President Clinton was in the White House. The GOP had made huge gains in the midterms, taking both the House and the Senate and making Clintons re-election look doubtful. Clinton stood his ground against Medicare cuts proposed by the Republican House then led by Speaker Newt Gingrich, and when the impasse led to a government shutdown, the public overwhelmingly sided with Clinton. potentially letting taxes rise for the middle income earners. That is why lawmakers are all but certain to come back to Washington next week and try to dig themselves out of the hole they created. Speaker John Boehner was part of the leadership in government created for the GOP. He initially signed off on the Senate compromise, but apparently couldnt get a majority of his Republican caucus to support it and to have Democratic votes carry the bill to victory would humiliate the speaker with conservatives. Even if this ends happily, as it should, with the payroll tax leadership is in question, as is the GOPs continued control of the House. It is that big a miscalculation. Obama may not be able to get his full holiday break in Hawaii, but if he spends a quiet Christmas at Camp David, or at the White House, he can at least console himself that the GOP obstructionism that he has been pointing to all year is now in full view for voters to see, just in time for Christmas with a big red bow. WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift


TALLAHASSEE Darrel Tremaine has been known to go to extremes for his research, such as crawling on his hands and knees through a dark, muddy limestone cave in Northwest Florida to learn more about the weather thousands of years ago. His goal? To compare ancient meteorological patterns with modern ones in the northern Gulf of Mexico region and ultimately inform policymakers on how to build a sustainable water supply. On a recent morning, the Florida State University doctoral student in oceanogra phy huddled with artisan Charlie ScottSmith at Florida States Master Craftsman Studios. The two were making molds of stalagmites, the natural formations rising formed by the dripping of water containing calcium carbonate. (Their counterparts, stalactites, hang from the ceilings of such caves.) Surrounded by the studios eye-catching an ancient ship, even a copy of the sculpture Winged Victory from the Louvre Museum Tremaine and Scott-Smith worked with a rubbery urethane compound to create stalagmite molds that resembled the molds with cement and glass. After the cement thoroughly dried, Tremaine returned the reproduction stalagmites to the cave, where, over time, dripping water will coat them with calcite and they will start growing again. The remote, Northwest Florida cave maintains a constant, year-round temperature of 72 degrees and a 100 percent relative humidity level, which means, as Tremaine likes to joke, that if you start to sweat, you stay wet. As part of a three-year climate research project, he harvested the two stalagmites one 4,000 years old, the other 25,000 years old from the cave to analyze them for isotopic and trace element variations in an effort to build a 4,000-year paleo-rainfall record for North Florida. In a unique arrangement with the Southeastern Cave Conservancy Inc. (SCCI), a in the southeastern United States, he was allowed to take the stalagmites as long as he made duplicates of them and placed the duplicates back in the cave a measure of cave conservation. The real stalagmites will be studied at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State, where Tremaine, a graduate research assistant, is currently stationed in the geochemistry lab. So far, Tremaine has been scrutinizing carbon, oxygen and strontium isotopes on modern calcite grown in the cave on glass microscope slides what he calls modern calibrations of ancient proxies. Isotopes of an element are atoms with the same number of protons but different number of neutrons, thus a slightly different atomic mass. He will use that data to get a better idea of ancient ventilation patterns, the temperature inside of a cave when the stalagmites were forming, what type of vegetation was growing above the cave, of, and whether the weather was cold, warm or hot during a particular span of time. By looking at trace elements we can get an idea of very wet and very dry rainfall patterns and cycles, Tremaine said. Well better understand severe weather patterns. Tremaine, along with a six-member team of scientists, researchers and graduate students, will cut the stalagmites in half and then use a 50-micron laser to vaporize calcite that they will then measure with a spectrometer. The laser will allow them to study monthly weather patterns in the Northern Gulf Region thousands of years ago. By extracting calcite powders with a half-millimeter drill bit, they will examine year increments. Eventually, they hope to create a high-resolution time series, analyzing monthly weather patterns over thousands of years. southeastern United States, he explained. The research is very important because we will be able to study our monsoonal weather patterns, which are much like India and China, with very wet and dry seasons. Tremaines six-member climate research team includes a wide swath of experts, from a retired professor to a Russian mathemati cian and an undergraduate cave researcher. They are Florida State faculty members Philip Flip Froelich, retired FSU Francis Eppes Professor of Oceanography; Bill Burnett, the CarlHenry Oppenheimer Professor of Oceanography; and Doron Nof, Distinguished Nansen Professor of Physical Oceanography. In addition, Guy Harley Means, assistant state geologist at the Flor ida Geological Survey; Brian Kilgore, a Florida State undergraduate majoring in biochemistry; and Karina Khazmutdinova, a mathematician and doctoral student at the FSU Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Institute, served on the team. Their research work on isotopes was recently published in the jour nal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta. Tremaine and his teams research on trace elements also will soon be published in the same research journal. They are also in the process of writing an article for the Journal of Hydrology. Records of past climates can be found in the ice caps and in the deep sea, said Jeff Chanton, FSUs John W. Winchester Professor of Oceanography, who has worked with Tremaine. The unique aspect of Dar rels work is that it will give us a record of local climate right here on the Northern Gulf Coast. This is important because a record of past climate in our region would help to predict whats to come in response to human disturbances of atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations. The 32-year-old Tremaine, who holds a masters degree in oceanography from Florida State and an undergraduate degree in engineering from the University of Cincinnati, dreams of someday starting his own groundwater research lab, where he would also teach middle and high school students to do research. Working with younger kids and teach ing them to do research early makes sense, because if we inform them, they will someday inform us, he said. negotiated permission from the state of Florida to move their cave-monitoring equipment into one of the most pristine and highly guarded caves in Florida Caverns State Park, located near the Panhandle town of Marianna. Tremaine has already been in the cave for preliminary investigations, and the team began installing equipment in November. Not easy work, by any means: No one, Tremaine explained one morning while he helped Florida State Master Craftsstalagmite molds, has been in that cave since 2006.

Arent door knobs inanimate? F. K., Laconia, N.H. Actually, wed put the doorknobs of our acquaintance in the animate category. But, to answer your question, the true expression was dead as a doornail, and it probably got changed because no one knows what a doornail is anymore. The reference is to a largeheaded iron nail that was used in making cleated doors, where two boards were fastened in a sideby-side manner by the use of the cleats and nails. The soft iron nails could be driven through the board and cleat and then clinched. Properly performed, the clinching bent the nail into a Ushape, and then the point of the U was driven back into the board. In a time when resources were scarce and every nail was saved and reused, a doornail, thus clinched and shaped, was useless for future use thus, the designation as dead. The doornail was dead to any future reincarnations.If a married woman keeps her maiden name, is it still considered appropriate to address the couple as Mr. and Mrs. for purposes of correspondence? R. L., Wilkes-Barre, Penn. Not unless she requests you to do so, no. Some married women use both names, perhaps reserving their maiden name for business or professional settings, while taking their husbands last name for personal or social settings. This is becoming less common, however, probably because of the inevitable confusion it causes, and acquaintances should never assume this to be the case. Generally, a woman expects to be addressed as Ms. rather than Mrs., if she keeps her maiden name. So, when John Smith mar ries Jane Doe, their cor respondence would be addressed to Mr. John Smith and Ms. Jane Doe. Either name can come pear on the same line. For roommates or couples living together, separate lines on the envelope is the preferred norm. In the case of combined names, it may take some research to discover whether both partners have hyphenated their names, or just one. He may remain Mr. John Smith, for example, while she becomes Ms. Jane Doe-Smith, in which case their names should appear just this way on any mailings. If and when children come into the picture, more research will be required to discover which last name the children take. Our advice is to ask early and assume nothing in the matter. Whatever your personal views on the subject, leave judgment aside on this one. Its a complicated world and a very personal choice.Is bay rum a drink or a hair tonic or what? I. L., Memphis, Tenn. The most common association with bay rum is probably as a mens aftershave. Bay rum is a simple (and quite old) mixture of rum and water, in roughly equal parts, with a small amount of oil of bay or distilled bay leaves added for aromatic appeal. One version weve seen calls for 18 ounces each of alcohol and water, with one drachm of oil of bay. (A drachmalso called drachma or dramis about 1/8 of an ounce.) In this particular old recipe, tered through magnesia, perhaps to take away the residual stickiness of any molasses or sugar in the rum. In the cosmetics world, rum is considered an excellent oil reducer and astringent toner. Its often used in shampoos and hair tonics, as well as for facial rinses or a bracing aftershave. The bay used in bay rum is from Pimenta racemosa, or the West Indian bay tree, which produces an aromatic liquid when distilled. The bay leaves we commonly use in cooking, from the bay tree Laurus nobilis, might produce similar results, although we havent tried it. DEC. 26, MONDAY St. Stephen. Boxing Day (Canada).

Page 14 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL DECEMBER 28, 2011 GARDENINGTake some time off from lawn careMany areas in Northwest Florida have experienced some cooler weather and some have even seen a frost. This means that warm season lawn grasses are going dormant for the winter. December and January are months to take a break from lawn care unless you have overseeded with ryegrass. Centipede, St. Augustine, zoysia, bahia and Bermuda grass are called warm season grasses because they grow during the warmth of summer but go dormant during the cool of winter. When grasses slow down and go dormant, they should be allowed to rest until environmental conditions exist to stimulate their growth. During the winter, nitrogen fertilization should not be applied on home lawns unless they are overseeded with ryegrass. Nitrogen fertilizer on dormant turfgrasses can lead to increased chance of winterkill and fungal diseases such as large patch. Nitrogen applications during this time also have a greater potential for movement into groundwater. Homeowners who overseeded their lawns in October and November should follow recommendations on ryegrass fertilization. The University of Florida/IFAS recommends Apply a lawn fertilizer at a rate of no more than one pound of nitrogen per 1,000 sq ft of turfgrass. For more information on fertilizing, please refer to Figuring Out Fertilizer second fertilizer application can be made approximately 60 days later. Always follow best management practices when fertilizing to reduce any potential nonpoint source pollution from the misapplication of fertilizer. Large patch disease can come and go throughout the winter if the weather is mild. This is common on St. Augustine lawns along the coastal areas in Northwest Florida where the lawns go into partial dormancy only. Damage from large patch will slow spring green-up, and affected areas will remain unsightly until warmer spring weather conditions allow for turfgrass recovery. To reduce the damaging effects of fungal diseases, be sure adjust your ir rigation for dormant conditions. From slows in the fall until the time it begins to grow in the spring, approximately mid-November until the end of February, be sure that the grass is irrigated rainfall. Although many home lawns do not require regular mowing now, be sure to keep the leaf litter off the turfgrass. Leaves capture moisture between themselves and the turf that may create insect and disease problems. Once raked up, you can always beds. Two to three inches of mulch over the plant's roots will also help prepare your plants for cold weather. Wait until spring to establish any permanent, warm season turfgrass from seed. Sod can be laid during winter if absolutely necessary, but remember to keep it moist to prevent it from drying out and dying. Establishment is best left until midspring, well after spring green-up. Warm-season turfgrasses may show signs of green-up in by early to mid-March in some areas. Do not push turfgrass growth with fertilizer. Fertilizer applied too early will feed the winter weeds, and fertilizer applied too heavily will result in lush growth that is more susceptible to injury from late frosts or large patch disease. Let the grass green up gradually, and do not fertilize until after two or three mowings in early spring. by Theresa Friday, Horticulture Extension Agent, Santa Rosa County Zoysia grass St. Augustine grass At Years EndWith greetings and best wishes to our neighbors, customers and friends for a magical and memorable forget your generosity, and look forward to your continued support.Wishing you a Happy New Year!from your friends at theLIBERTY TIRE COMPANY EDDIE NOBLES LAND CLEARING Call Eddie Nobles Located in Bristol Land clearing, excavation and root raking: A large selection of new and used cars are Ronnie Coley personally invites you to visit him any time Monday thru Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Chipola If you are like most people, as the New Year approaches you might be thinking about ways to become healthi So, why not consider doing the same for your garden? To be healthy, your garden needs basic care just like you do. This includes getting nutrients and a healthy diet in the form of nicely amended soil and a well-balanced fertilizer, a good dose of sunshine, fresh air, and it needs to be kept hydrated. The simplest way to provide all of this is to start with a simple plan of action and then stick with it throughout the year. With that in mind, here are ten gar dening resolutions that will help you build a healthier, happier garden. Resolve to create a garden plan so that you will know ahead of time what needs to be done and when. Take advantage of the colder winter months to decide which changes you want to make to your garden once spring arrives. Use the time to look over all the gardening and nursery catalogs that arrive in the mail during winter. Resolve to take the time to draw or write up this plan so that when you go to buy plants, you will know exactly what you need to buy, no more or no less. If you arent sure of the growing require ments for different plants consult a good gardening book like the Sunset National Garden Book. One way to create a garden plan is via a gardening journal. However, it doesnt have to be in book or jour nal form, it can be a calendar, a spiral notebook, a notebook with pockets, an album, an organizer, it all depends on what you want to use your journal for. Resolve to always plant the right plant in the right location! If you select the wrong plant for a particular location you could end up with a constant main tenance problem. Always remember: different plants have different require ments. Some prefer more sun, some more shade, some can tolerate wind and some cannot. Resolve to never, ever forget about the soil since soil is the number one key to a healthy garden. Learn what needs to be done to amend your soil so your plants get a healthy start. Resolve to focus on conserving water by grouping plants with similar moisture needs together, watering in the early morning when its cooler to avoid evaporation and mildew and rot on plants, and incorporating water-wise and native plants. Resolve to always bring the health iest plants into your garden by purchasing and planting only the healthiest seedlings or plants or start your own plants from seed. Whenever possible, plant diseaseand pest-resistant variet ies. Resolve to mulch regularly since it conserves water, inhibits weeds and provides an attractive ground cover in Resolve to use integrated pest management, meaning try to take preventive measures and think beyond your garden since whatever chemical you use in your garden might end up in the groundwater. Consider alternatives. Finally, resolve to never forget why have fun and enjoy your landscape. Remember nature is beautiful, relaxing and it replenishes us. So, walk around, smell your roses, and just enjoy the things you are growing.

Brock is the son of Teddy Sykes and Christina Sykes. His grandparents are Lavhon and Betty Miles and Dale and Penny Hobby. FIRST HOG When the time comes to make New Year's resolutions, the conventional wisdom is to focus on weight. Such wisdom is understandable, as many people spend the holiday season indulging in big meals and all the treats synonymous with having fun. While it's acceptable to make healthy resolutions, a slimmer waist and a healthier diet should not be the only goals for the year ahead. In light of the last several years, it's important for men and women to make No one can say with certainty when, or if, the economy will rebound, and men and women should look at the New Year as a suitable the future. Reassess your investment plan. Since 2008, the market has been up and down like a roller coaster. Those who have weathered the storm have no doubt witnessed big gains and the turn of the calendar is a great time to reassess investments and possibly make some changes. Are you taking on more risk than you're comfortable with? Is your portfolio too conservative? How well are you diversifying? Look at your investments from every angle and determine if it's time to make some changes. Resolve to be more liquid. A 2011 poll from the National Foundation for Credit Counseling found that 64 percent of Americans would need to utilize a source other than their savings account to pay for a $1,000 unplanned expense. That percentage illustrates that most adults just don't have enough cash on hand. This year, resolve to be more liquid. Being more liquid enables you to more effectively handle emergencies, and it also helps you avoid being forced to sell investments at the wrong time. Shake things up. If you rely on one such a practice needs to change. No matter how much you trust this person, don't fall into svengali. Such an arrangement proved very costly to those men and women who trusted the likes of Bernie Madoff, a once-prominent than a criminal mastermind orchestrating history's largest Ponzi scheme. This year, if you haven't done so already, make sure your and trustee are all different people. Negotiate lower rates. Use the onset of the New Year as a chance to negotiate newer and lower interest rates on existing loans or responsibility over the last 12 months, paying down debts and paying all bills on time, this is the perfect time to negotiate lower rates and reap the rewards of your good behavior. Don't invest in anything you don't understand. Too often investors get caught up in so-called expert forecasts and act impulsively based on the advice of some talking head they see on television or hear on the radio. Unfortunately, such "experts" aren't some might even have ulterior motives for pushing certain investments and shunning others. What's more, few people know the track record of these "experts," so their advice should not be taken at face value. A simple rule for the year ahead should be to never invest in anything you don't understand. If an investment opportunity seems worthwhile, do all of your homework to gain a solid understanding of the opportunity before investing any money. Healthy resolutions go beyond a slimmer waist and a healthier diet. This year, resolve your resolutions for the coming year
