Jones had pulled up to the gas pumps at Big Bend around 2:30 p.m. when a woman in a van pulled up and started shouting, Hes going to kill somebody. The trooper quickly caught up with the driver, who was northbound on Hwy. 71 in a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria. He was going in both lanes and off the shoulder of the road, said Jones. When the trooper activated his patrol lights, the driver slowed down to 30 mph. Then he gassed it and took off in an attempt to elude me, he said. He got up to 70 mph as he approached Rivertown Community Church and almost crashed there, the trooper said. Jones got the driver to pull over at Hayes Subdivision Road. A wary motorist in a truck pulled in front of the car to box him in, said Jones. The driver complied when the trooper told him to show his hands. He put his hands out the window but was still revving his motor up, he said. The trooper reached in, turned the car off and removed the keys. The driver, identified as 50-year-old Thomas Gregory Alday of Grand Ridge, couldnt even stand up, according to the trooper. He was in bad shape. I had to lean him against the car, Jones said. The man warned the trooper, Dont f--with me. identify himself. He later called himself, Big Al and told the trooper, You dont f--mess with Big Al. Had he been less intoxicated, he probably would have continued to run and caused a serious, serious crash, Jones said. He refused to attempt a sobriety test and declined to give a breath sample to determine his level of intoxication. It would have been interesting just to see what his alcohol level was, the trooper said, adding, It probably would have been one of the highest I ever had. A bottle of gin with probably a sip left in it was found in the car, said Jones. The vehicle is registered to Aldays mother, who told the trooper she tries to keep her keys hidden from her son. When he took off with her car he also took her pet, a little pug dog, according to Jones. The trooper said Alday had at least six or seven previous DUIs. He was charged with felony DUI and felony driving while license suspended or revoked. Alday is being held in the Calhoun County Jail on $5,000 bond.Intoxicated driver with history of DUIs arrested Saturday ThomasHOMAS alday ALDAY A series of paving projects will begin soon following the award of a $875,872.70 contract to North Florida Construction of Clarksville by the Bristol City Council last week.

FEBRUARY 1, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 To the editor, Twenty years from now... I recently participated in and experienced two dif40-year time frame. Two weeks ago, my family and I attended the Homecoming game at Altha Public School when the Altha Wildcats took on and defeated the Bethlehem Wildcats. Congratulations to the Junior Varsity and Varsity for the wins over the opponents. We were there in part to support the basketball team, but also to celebrate with the class of 1992. My wife, Michelle (Pitts) Yoder, graduated in 1992 and her class was recognized as the twenty year class. Last week, I was afforded the opportunity to judge two Career Development Events (CDE) at the District FFA Competition. As a former competitor and past generation of FFA leaders. Hanging out in a sea of blue and gold jackets made me feel young again and it reminded me of my participation and leadership development through the FFA twenty years ago. Congratulations to both Altha and Blountstown FFAs for placing either 1st or 2nd in every event that they competed in. Seeing the next generation of leaders taking the stage in their blue and gold jackets as professionals in the be difference makers. the past twenty years. It also prompted me to consider the future the next twenty years. Calhoun County is a great place to live, work and play, which is why I chose to move my family back to Calhoun County four years ago. Twenty years from now, what kind of world will the class of 2012 be leading? Are we as todays leaders equipping the next generation of leaders to embrace the challenges they will face and to be difference makers in a world that so desperately needs principled change agents? Twenty years from now, when they are sitting in the chair I sit in today, what will I have done to make their world a better place to raise a family? Will Calhoun County be a better place to work, play and live? Twenty years from now starts today. It starts with me.

DAV VID LETTERMANHouse Minority Leader Nancy P Pelosi says she has dirt on Newt G Gingrich, but so far shes keeping her lips sealed because thats how the last surgeon left them. ConanONAN OBrienRIENRomney says he is not a creature of Washington. He has lived in the real streets of America. I believe its Easy SStreet, if Im not mistaken. JAY LENOA 17-year-old girl is being treated for malnutrition after eating nothing but Chicken McNuggets for the past 15 years. Doctors are describing her condition as American. ConanONAN OBrienRIENRon P Paul was not in F Florida, he was campaigning up in Maine. They think he was afraid that if he went to F Florida, theyd grab him and put him in an old folks home. JAY LENOObamas S State of the Union speech was written so 8th graders could understand it. Which explains the part where Obama said, I wasted bin Laden, LMAO!

JIMMY KIMMELPPresident Obama told the nation The state of our union is strong, while Newt G Gingrich told his wife, The state of our union is open. ConanONAN OBrienRIENNewt G Gingrich picked up an endorsement from Herman Cain. Its not unlike getting Carrot Tops endorsement for an Academy Award. JIMMY FF ALLON Nintendo announced that it lost more than $800 million in the last year. In fact, today Luigi traded in his Mario Kart for a Taurus. JIMMY KIMMELA new website just came out thats designed to calculate how long it takes Mitt Romney to earn your salary. S So from now on, whenever Mitt Romney is running late, he can call there and say, Ill ConanONAN OBrienRIENWhats interesting is in the time it took you to think about that joke, Mitt Romney made $65 million. ConanONAN OBrienRIENWASHINGTON Any doubts about the power of money in politics should be put to rest after the events of the last few weeks. If it werent for the deep pockets of a single donor, Las Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson, Newt Gingrich couldnt have run the competitive race he did in South Carolina. And without that double-digit victory over Mitt Romney, Gingrichs campaign might have folded and Romney would have been on his way to wrapping up the nomination. Of course, its hard to feel too sorry for Romney. The Super Pac that supports his candidacy dumped millions of dollars in negative ads on Gingrich in Iowa, destroying the former Speaker before he could capitalize on his eleventh hour surge with the voters. Gingrichs fury ensured he would continue in the race with or without Adelsons money, but the infusion of cash allowed him to do a lot more damage, amplifying his voice over the air waves. As Romney and Gingrich continue to battle away, one or the other always mentions how President Obama and the Democrats are sitting out there just waiting to spend a billion dollars destroying the Republican nominee. The year ahead doesnt look pretty as the politicians hammer away at each other, destroying what little trust and respect that the American people have in their leaders. Every four years, there are earnest editorials about too much money in politics, and every election cycle the price tag goes up. Whats different this time is the dramatic escalation of outside money thanks to the Supreme Courts ruling in the Citizens United case two years corporation, wanted to air a documentary critical of Hillary Clinton along with ads featuring her image during the 2008 Democratic primaries in violation of the McCain-Feingold camIn a 5 to 4 decision, the Court threw out the federal ban on all provisions in the McCainFeingold Act that limited corporations and unions from directly participating in electioneering communications. That opened the Super PACs aligned with the various candidates. Restrictions remain on money given directly to candidates, so the result is a system of shadow Super PAC campaigns for which candidates claim no responsibility even as these groups do their dirty work. President Obama in his State of the Union address two years ago criticized the Courts rulfor special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections. The Supreme Court justices seated just a few feet away in the House chamber looked on in silence while Democrats cheered and Justice Samuel Alito mouthed the words not true. Chief Justice Roberts, who like Alito had voted with the majority, later expressed his dismay at Obama using that venue to attack the Courts decision. "The image of having the members of one branch of government standing up, literally surrounding the Supreme Court, cheering and hollering while the Court according to the requirements of protocol has to sit there expressionless, I think is very troubling, Roberts said. Obama didnt go there this year; hes picked campaign ahead, he cant afford to be too highminded about raising money. The way this new evitably lead to legal challenges, but until the makeup of the Court changes, those challenges will be meaningless. There is recourse, a constitutional amendment, and as the dollars pile up to distort the political process, amending the constitution will no longer seem far-fetched, but a commonsense solution to an unnecessary problem.

N. V., Fowler, CO Earth sweats occur when the humidity is on the rise, and wood, porcelain, metal, and even stone may start to exude moisture. These earth sweats have come to be known as rain predictors. Wooden beams and furniture, china dishes, stone, and brick all may show beads of moisture when rain is near. Oiled wood, especially, such as a salad bowl or a weaving loom with linseed oil on it, sweats easily. Thunderstones, on the other hand, were believed by the ancients to be small meteorites or stones swept up and then dropped by violent storms. They were reputed to have magical properties, and were sometimes worn as talismans. Wearers considered themselves especially protected from lightning.Can you enlighten me on the confusion between Breeds Hill and Bunker Hill? P. L., Lexington, MS Bunker Hill is the higher of the two elevations, while Breeds Hill, lower and to the southeast, commands Boston Harbor. When the American colonists learned of the plans for the British to lay siege to the heights of Charlestown and Dorchester, colonial forces were ordered to occupy Bunker Hill, outside Charlestown. Accounts differ on who made the decision to slightly revise the plan. Some accounts credit William Prescott with choosing Breeds Hill for its harbor watch. Others name General Israel Putnam for digging in at Breeds Hill. In any event, its generally agreed that the Americans command of the sea approach from Breeds Hill probably pushed the British into attacking. Once the British forces had been reinforced by troops led by William Howe, Henry Clinton, and John Burgoyne, they were ordered to take the tempts were dismal failures, and casualties were proportionately among the highest in the British armys history, almost 50 percent of their involved men. Their third attempt, however, was successful-due in large part to the Americans lack of powder by that time.In November, my hensnot even 2 years oldsuddenly decreased their egg production by half. Theyre still off. What happened? A. D., Melbourne, AR Any number of things may have affected your hens, but stresses to look for would include a natural period of moultsupplies or good feed, fright or other distress, or disease. Age is an other normal factor in egg production, but at 2 years your hens should still be well within their productive range. Decreasing daylight could certainly be another factor, although its unlikely that it would decrease your production by as much as 50 percent. You might try supplemental lighting, however, to see whether it makes a difference. Be sure, though, that youre absolutely consistent in your methods. A skipped day could bring on an artificial moult! For this reason, many hen keepers use an automatic timer switch. trouble might be. Moulting periods, when a hen loses her feathers and grows new ones, can occur at about the age you describe for your hens. Most often, hens begin laying at about 6 months or so and continue for a year to 14 months; they then go into a moulting period. If you got your new chicks two springs ago, this could be the case with your hens. Moulting can result in a period of no eggs for up to 3 months or so. Stress-induced moulting, whether gradual or only partial, can also reduce egg production. Water supplies can have a huge impact on egg production, with a defew hours possibly causing a decrease in laying for many days. Check to see that your water units are working properly, and accessible throughout the day. Be sure, too, that you have adequate feeding and watering space per hen, so that even the less dominant birds can gain access to what they need. Check your hens for signs of being hen-pecked by more dominant birds any that show bloody spots or unhealed sores. Note whether they are pestered by parasites or other poultry ills. Generally, poultry diseases will coincide with a decrease in feeding or other noticeable changes. Cull any sick birds, or isolate them. Also, check your chicken coop for adequate temperatures, the absence of drafts or overheating, or a buildup in ammonia from unclean litter or lack of ventilation. JAN. 30, MONDAY -Moon at apogee.

An Altha man was arrested on numerous charges after a deputy who knew he did not have a valid license driving through Blountstown Friday evening. Calhoun County Sheriffs Deputy Jody Hoagland pulled in behind a pickup driven by James Russell Johnson, 29, after spotting him pull out from the Texaco station on West Central Avenue in Blountstown. After he was stopped, Johnson told the deputy his license was suspended due to his failure to pay child support. Johnson was asked to exit the truck. The deputy noticed that before doing so, Johnson reached between the seats of his truck as though trying to conceal something. When he stepped out and walked to the rear of the truck as directed, Hoagland saw him toss a small blue container under the vehicle. Johnson was handcuffed and the container retrieved. A powdery substance inside the container tested positive for methamphetamine. During a search, deputies found a loaded magazine in his right front coin pocket. A set of brass knuckles was found tucked in the back pocket of his jeans. When questioned if he had any weapons, Johnson said a gun was in his truck under the front seat. During a search of the vehicle, a Bryco .380-caliber handgun with a live round in the chamber was recovered. Deputies also found two container bound together with Velco. Both held what later proved to be methamphetamine. Deputies found that Johnsons license had been 2008. The truck was towed from the scene and he was taken to the Calhoun County Jail. The total amount of methamphetamine collected from the three containers at the scene weighed 5.6 grams. Johnson was charged with driving with license suspended or revoked with knowledge, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon (gun), possession of weapon by a convicted felon (brass knuckles), possession of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Army National Guard visited Hosford School middle school students with one goal in mind to teach them about leadership. The soldiers taught the students that being a leader also meant they would have to be loyal, respectful, brave, and must have honor. They played dodge ball and learned how to be a team player. Lt. Gatchel showed the middle schoolers Blindside, Men of Honor, and Freedom Writers to teach the students about honor and respect. On Friday a rock wall was assembled and students conquered their fears by climbing to the top. Raegan Todd pauses for a photos on her journey to the top.

The elementary students really enjoyed listening to these young mentors. The third Annual Pre-season Baseball/Softball Classic was held at Hosford School Saturday, Jan. 28. The Hosford Panther Booster Club would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the following individuals who helped in making the event such a huge success: Doobie Hayes, Gerald Barber, Dexter Barber, Howard Davis, Joe Brown, Becky Brown, Alice Mansell, Robin Blackburn, Zack Stoutamire, the Banks family and countless others. We are so appreciative of everyone who came out to support the children and our community. We truly are blessed to live in such a devoted community. For the last two weeks School have been studying all about bees and the important role that they play in our environment. Special guest Mrs. Katrina Peddie of Deseret Hives came and brought an observatory hive so the children could see the life cycle of the bee up close and personal. She spoke with the children about what a powerful natural resource bees are, from honey and wax production, to pollination. Our local area is well known for the Tupelo trees that grow up and down the Apalachicola River, and this allows the bees to produce one of the highest grades of honey in the world, Tupelo honey. Everyone enjoyed the visit and especially the sampling of Tupelo honey. It was a sweet treat for all! RIGHT: Katrina Peddie showing her box of live bees and honey to the students.

The Magnolia Garden, in the Gardens of the Big Bend at the University of Florida/IFAS North Florida Research and Education Center in Quincy (NFREC) has been named by NAPCC, the North American Plant Collections Consortium as part of the national collection of Magnolia species. NAPCC is a network of 16 botanical gardens and arboreta working together to coordinate a continent-wide approach to plant preservation and is a program of the American Public Gardens Association in cooperation with the USDA Agricultural Research Service.As leaves fall from our deciduous trees, you may notice some curious-looking growths. Typically hidden by foliage, here are some of the oddities you might be seeing. Lichens Lichens look menacing, but they are not harmful to the plants they grow on. Lichens are the crusty, leafy or hairy gray-green growth that you often see growing on the bark of trees and shrubs. You also see lichens growing on old Lichens are a symbiotic organism composed of an alga and a fungus. The alga in the lichen photosynthesizes and provides the food that the organism needs through the energy of the sun. The fungus provides the body of the organism. They are not parasites or pathogens. They dont attack or damage plants. But oftentimes, you see lichen growing vigorously on plants that appear sick or of low vigor. This is simply because a plant in low vigor typically loses its foliage and allows more light to penetrate its canopy. This gives the sun-loving lichen an advantage. They are not causing the problem they are simply taking advantage of the situation. Cottony Cushion Scale This insect often appears in clusters at the tips of trees and shrubs. Cottony cushion scale is a strange-looking white insect that can infest many different types of plants but are often seen on citrus, maples, pittosporums and magnolia. The mature females have bright orange-red, yellow, or brown bodies. The most conspicuous feature is the large than the body. The egg sac contains about 1000 eggs. Like other scales, cottony cushion scale decreases the vitality of its host by sucking sap from the leaves, twigs, branches, and trunk. Feeding can result in defoliation and dieback of twigs and small branches when infestations are extremely heavy. Like other soft scales, cottony cushion scale excretes honeydew, which is usually accompanied by blackish, sooty mold growth and ants. Horticultural oil kills all stages of scales that are present, and often provides good control. Oil products may be used on tolerant plants during either the growing or dormant seasons, depending on the product. Refer to the product label for guidelines on plant sensitivity and temperature limitations. Galls Galls occur on a wide variety of plants. These growths may be the result of fungi, bacteria, nematodes or mites, but insects are the prime cause. These growths are called galls because they contain large amounts of tannin, a substance which has a very bitter taste. Long ago, they were known as gallnuts because they tasted as bitter as gall. Galls are found most commonly on the stems and leaves, but also occur on trunks. They occur in almost every conceivable form and color, and their shapes range from spheres to tubes. The surface may be smooth, hairy or covered with spines. Galls seem to cause a lot of concern to the general public. Generally they do not seriously harm the plant. Most ornamental plants and trees are not apparently injured even by relatively large numbers of galls. After formation, it is impossible to eliminate the galls or the pests with insecticides because they are enclosed and well protected inside the gall. To prevent some of these oddities, remember to keep your plants healthy by performing appropriate cultural practices. by Theresa Friday, Horticulture Extension Agent, Santa Rosa County Oddities appear as leaves fall Scale cottony cushion Gall BBlakleyCelebrating Magnolias workshop planned for February 18 in Quincy Located in BBristolLAND ClLEARINgG-Private drives and roads -Food plots -Home sites -Small acreageCall EEddie NNobles at (850) 643-5390 or (850) 447-0449 or Chas (850) 447-0849EEddie NNoblesLAND ClLEARING, EEXCACA VA A TIIONN AND RootOOT RAKING FoOR:Heres an ideal way to get into the mood for spring planting: Join the Arbor Day Foundation and receive 10 free trees to plant when the weather turns warm.

Call us!Premium namebrand tires TALLAHASSEE Over the past weekend, the Florida Forest Service hosted wounded warriors on Lake Talquin State Forest as part of Operation Outdoor Freedom (OOF). Through the program, four wounded veterans were treated to a special opportunity deer hunt on the Lines Tract at Lake Talquin State Forest. The hunters were provided a weekend full of outdoor all of which was made possible through donations from businesses and families in Gadsden, Liberty, Leon and Wakulla counties. The OOF hunting camp was based out of the Florida Forest Service Bear Creek Educational facility, which is a fully capable ADA facility allowing veterans with limited mobility to participate in the event. Oversize shooting houses were constructed and placed in locations to allow for easy travel and accessibility for the hunters. Operation Outdoor Freedom is a program of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services which allows the Florida Forest Service to designate special areas on Florida state forests for use by wounded warriors of the United State Armed Forces. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam worked with Senator Alan Hays and Representative Greg Stuebe to pass the measure during the 2011 legislative session that established Operation Outdoor Freedom. This program builds on an existing partnership between the Florida Forest Service and the Wounded Warrior Project, which has hosted hunts on Florida State Forests in recent years. With the fall deer hunt completed, plans for the Operation Outdoor Freedom spring turkey hunt on Lake Talquin State Forest are under way.

The Jan. 26 action honors the commitment made by Secretary Vilsack in his 2009 speech on forest management, and by the President in the Americas Great Outdoors Report.

Jones had pulled up to the gas pumps at Big Bend around 2:30 p.m. when a woman in a van pulled up and started shouting, Hes going to kill somebody. The trooper quickly caught up with the driver, who was northbound on Hwy. 71 in a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria. He was going in both lanes and off the shoulder of the road, said Jones. When the trooper activated his patrol lights, the driver slowed down to 30 mph. Then he gassed it and took off in an attempt to elude me, he said. He got up to 70 mph as he approached Rivertown Community Church and almost crashed there, the trooper said. Jones got the driver to pull over at Hayes Subdivision Road. A wary motorist in a truck pulled in front of the car to box him in, said Jones. The driver complied when the trooper told him to show his hands. He put his hands out the window but was still revving his motor up, he said. The trooper reached in, turned the car off and removed the keys. The driver, identified as 50-year-old Thomas Gregory Alday of Grand Ridge, couldnt even stand up, according to the trooper. He was in bad shape. I had to lean him against the car, Jones said. The man warned the trooper, Dont f--with me. identify himself. He later called himself, Big Al and told the trooper, You dont f--mess with Big Al. Had he been less intoxicated, he probably would have continued to run and caused a serious, serious crash, Jones said. He refused to attempt a sobriety test and declined to give a breath sample to determine his level of intoxication. It would have been interesting just to see what his alcohol level was, the trooper said, adding, It probably would have been one of the highest I ever had. A bottle of gin with probably a sip left in it was found in the car, said Jones. The vehicle is registered to Aldays mother, who told the trooper she tries to keep her keys hidden from her son. When he took off with her car he also took her pet, a little pug dog, according to Jones. The trooper said Alday had at least six or seven previous DUIs. He was charged with felony DUI and felony driving while license suspended or revoked. Alday is being held in the Calhoun County Jail on $5,000 bond.Intoxicated driver with history of DUIs arrested Saturday THOMAS ALDAY A series of paving projects will begin soon following the award of a $875,872.70 contract to North Florida Construction of Clarksville by the Bristol City Council last week.

FEBRUARY 1, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 To the editor, Twenty years from now... I recently participated in and experienced two dif40-year time frame. Two weeks ago, my family and I attended the Homecoming game at Altha Public School when the Altha Wildcats took on and defeated the Bethlehem Wildcats. Congratulations to the Junior Varsity and Varsity for the wins over the opponents. We were there in part to support the basketball team, but also to celebrate with the class of 1992. My wife, Michelle (Pitts) Yoder, graduated in 1992 and her class was recognized as the twenty year class. Last week, I was afforded the opportunity to judge two Career Development Events (CDE) at the District FFA Competition. As a former competitor and past generation of FFA leaders. Hanging out in a sea of blue and gold jackets made me feel young again and it reminded me of my participation and leadership devel opment through the FFA twenty years ago. Congratula tions to both Altha and Blountstown FFAs for placing either 1st or 2nd in every event that they competed in. Seeing the next generation of leaders taking the stage in their blue and gold jackets as professionals in the be difference makers. the past twenty years. It also prompted me to consider the future the next twenty years. Calhoun County is a great place to live, work and play, which is why I chose to move my family back to Calhoun County four years ago. Twenty years from now, what kind of world will the class of 2012 be leading? Are we as todays leaders equipping the next generation of leaders to embrace the challenges they will face and to be difference makers in a world that so desperately needs principled change agents? Twenty years from now, when they are sitting in the chair I sit in today, what will I have done to make their world a better place to raise a family? Will Calhoun County be a better place to work, play and live? Twenty years from now starts today. It starts with me.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL FEBRUARY 1, 2012 COMMENTARY Late Night LaughsA RECAP OF RECENT OBSER V ATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. Newt Gingrich has been attacking Mitt Romney for being wealthy and having money in bank accounts in the Cayman Islands. See, thats when you know youre part of the top 1 percent, when your banks address has the word island in it. JAY LENOSnoop Dogg endorsed Ron Paul for president. Snoop said he likes Pauls positions on everything from legalizing pot to legalizing pot. CONAN OBRIENing in the subway. And they said if this works, then theyre going to start cracking down on murder. DA VID LETTERMANHouse Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says she has dirt on Newt Gingrich, but so far shes keeping her lips sealed because thats how the last surgeon left them. CONAN OBRIENRomney says he is not a creature of Washing ton. He has lived in the real streets of America. I believe its Easy Street, if Im not mistaken. JAY LENOA 17-year-old girl is being treated for malnutri tion after eating nothing but Chicken McNuggets for the past 15 years. Doctors are describing her condition as American. CONAN OBRIENRon Paul was not in Florida, he was campaign ing up in Maine. They think he was afraid that if he went to Florida, theyd grab him and put him in an old folks home. JAY LENOObamas State of the Union speech was written so 8th graders could understand it. Which explains the part where Obama said, I wasted bin Laden, LMAO! CONAN OBRIENThe only reason that American schoolchildren learn about Roman numerals now is the Super Bowl. DA VID LETTERMANNorth Korea has made it illegal to use cell phones. The good news is, its now the greatest place in the world to see a movie. JAY LENOI read that Americans will eat about 450 million chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday. Or as Thanksgiving turkeys put it, Whos laughing now, chickens? JIMMY KIMMELPresident Obama told the nation The state of our union is strong, while Newt Gingrich told his wife, The state of our union is open. CONAN OBRIENNewt Gingrich picked up an endorsement from Herman Cain. Its not unlike getting Carrot Tops endorsement for an Academy Award. JIMMY F ALLON Nintendo announced that it lost more than $800 million in the last year. In fact, today Luigi traded in his Mario Kart for a Taurus. JIMMY KIMMELA new website just came out thats designed to calculate how long it takes Mitt Romney to earn your salary. So from now on, whenever Mitt Romney is running late, he can call there and say, Ill CONAN OBRIENWhats interesting is in the time it took you to think about that joke, Mitt Romney made $65 million. CONAN OBRIENWASHINGTON Any doubts about the power of money in politics should be put to rest after the events of the last few weeks. If it werent for the deep pockets of a single donor, Las Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson, Newt Gingrich couldnt have run the competitive race he did in South Carolina. And without that double-digit victory over Mitt Romney, Gingrichs campaign might have folded and Romney would have been on his way to wrapping up the nomination. Of course, its hard to feel too sorry for Romney. The Super Pac that supports his candidacy dumped millions of dollars in negative ads on Gingrich in Iowa, destroying the former Speaker before he could capitalize on his eleventh hour surge with the voters. Gingrichs fury ensured he would continue in the race with or without Adelsons money, but the infusion of cash allowed him to do a lot more damage, amplifying his voice over the air waves. As Romney and Gingrich continue to battle away, one or the other always mentions how President Obama and the Democrats are sitting out there just waiting to spend a billion dollars destroying the Republican nominee. The year ahead doesnt look pretty as the politicians hammer away at each other, destroying what little trust and respect that the American people have in their leaders. Every four years, there are earnest editorials about too much money in politics, and every election cycle the price tag goes up. Whats different this time is the dramatic escalation of outside money thanks to the Supreme Courts ruling in the Citizens United case two years corporation, wanted to air a documentary critical of Hillary Clinton along with ads featuring her image during the 2008 Democratic primaries in violation of the McCain-Feingold camIn a 5 to 4 decision, the Court threw out the federal ban on all provisions in the McCainFeingold Act that limited corporations and unions from directly participating in electioneering communications. That opened the Super PACs aligned with the various candidates. Restrictions remain on money given directly to candidates, so the result is a system of shadow Super PAC campaigns for which candidates claim no responsibility even as these groups do their dirty work. President Obama in his State of the Union address two years ago criticized the Courts rulfor special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limit in our elections. The Supreme Court justices seated just a few feet away in the House chamber looked on in silence while Democrats cheered and Justice Samuel Alito mouthed the words not true. Chief Justice Roberts, who like Alito had voted with the majority, later expressed his dismay at Obama using that venue to attack the Courts decision. "The image of having the members of one branch of government standing up, liter ally surrounding the Supreme Court, cheering and hollering while the Court according to the requirements of protocol has to sit there expressionless, I think is very troubling, Roberts said. Obama didnt go there this year; hes picked campaign ahead, he cant afford to be too highminded about raising money. The way this new evitably lead to legal challenges, but until the makeup of the Court changes, those challenges will be meaningless. There is recourse, a constitutional amendment, and as the dollars pile up to distort the political process, amending the constitution will no longer seem far-fetched, but a commonsense solution to an unnecessary problem.

N. V., Fowler, CO Earth sweats occur when the humidity is on the rise, and wood, por celain, metal, and even stone may start to exude moisture. These earth sweats have come to be known as rain predic tors. Wooden beams and furniture, china dishes, stone, and brick all may show beads of moisture when rain is near. Oiled wood, especially, such as a salad bowl or a weaving loom with linseed oil on it, sweats easily. Thunderstones, on the other hand, were believed by the ancients to be small meteorites or stones swept up and then dropped by violent storms. They were reputed to have magical properties, and were sometimes worn as talismans. Wearers considered themselves especially protected from lightning.Can you enlighten me on the confusion between Breeds Hill and Bunker Hill? P. L., Lexington, MS Bunker Hill is the higher of the two eleva tions, while Breeds Hill, lower and to the southeast, commands Boston Harbor. When the American colonists learned of the plans for the British to lay siege to the heights of Charlestown and Dorchester, colonial forces were ordered to occupy Bunker Hill, outside Charlestown. Accounts differ on who made the decision to slightly revise the plan. Some accounts credit William Prescott with choosing Breeds Hill for its harbor watch. Others name General Israel Putnam for digging in at Breeds Hill. In any event, its generally agreed that the Americans command of the sea approach from Breeds Hill probably pushed the British into attacking. Once the British forces had been reinforced by troops led by William Howe, Henry Clinton, and John Burgoyne, they were ordered to take the tempts were dismal fail ures, and casualties were proportionately among the highest in the British armys history, almost 50 percent of their involved men. Their third attempt, however, was successful-due in large part to the Americans lack of powder by that time.In November, my hensnot even 2 years oldsuddenly decreased their egg production by half. Theyre still off. What happened? A. D., Melbourne, AR Any number of things may have affected your hens, but stresses to look for would include a natural period of moult supplies or good feed, fright or other distress, or disease. Age is an other normal factor in egg production, but at 2 years your hens should still be well within their productive range. Decreasing daylight could certainly be another factor, although its unlikely that it would decrease your production by as much as 50 percent. You might try supplemental lighting, however, to see whether it makes a difference. Be sure, though, that youre absolutely consistent in your meth ods. A skipped day could bring on an artificial moult! For this reason, many hen keepers use an automatic timer switch. trouble might be. Moulting periods, when a hen loses her feathers and grows new ones, can occur at about the age you describe for your hens. Most often, hens begin laying at about 6 months or so and continue for a year to 14 months; they then go into a moulting period. If you got your new chicks two springs ago, this could be the case with your hens. Moulting can result in a period of no eggs for up to 3 months or so. Stress-induced moulting, whether gradual or only partial, can also reduce egg production. Water supplies can have a huge impact on egg production, with a defew hours possibly causing a decrease in laying for many days. Check to see that your water units are working properly, and accessible throughout the day. Be sure, too, that you have adequate feeding and watering space per hen, so that even the less dominant birds can gain access to what they need. Check your hens for signs of being hen-pecked by more dominant birds any that show bloody spots or unhealed sores. Note whether they are pestered by parasites or other poultry ills. Gener ally, poultry diseases will coincide with a decrease in feeding or other noticeable changes. Cull any sick birds, or isolate them. Also, check your chicken coop for adequate temperatures, the absence of drafts or overheating, or a buildup in ammonia from unclean litter or lack of ventila tion. JAN. 30, MONDAY -Moon at apogee.

An Altha man was arrested on numerous charges after a deputy who knew he did not have a valid license driving through Blountstown Friday evening. Calhoun County Sheriffs Deputy Jody Hoagland pulled in behind a pickup driven by James Russell Johnson, 29, after spotting him pull out from the Texaco station on West Central Avenue in Blountstown. After he was stopped, Johnson told the deputy his license was suspended due to his failure to pay child support. Johnson was asked to exit the truck. The deputy noticed that before doing so, Johnson reached between the seats of his truck as though trying to conceal something. When he stepped out and walked to the rear of the truck as directed, Hoagland saw him toss a small blue container under the vehicle. Johnson was handcuffed and the container retrieved. A powdery substance inside the container tested positive for methamphetamine. During a search, deputies found a loaded magazine in his right front coin pocket. A set of brass knuckles was found tucked in the back pocket of his jeans. When questioned if he had any weapons, Johnson said a gun was in his truck under the front seat. During a search of the vehicle, a Bryco .380-caliber handgun with a live round in the chamber was recovered. Deputies also found two container bound together with Velco. Both held what later proved to be methamphetamine. Deputies found that Johnsons license had been 2008. The truck was towed from the scene and he was taken to the Calhoun County Jail. The total amount of methamphetamine collected from the three containers at the scene weighed 5.6 grams. Johnson was charged with driving with license suspended or revoked with knowledge, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon (gun), possession of weapon by a convicted felon (brass knuckles), possession of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Army National Guard visited Hosford School middle school students with one goal in mind to teach them about lead ership. The soldiers taught the students that being a leader also meant they would have to be loyal, respectful, brave, and must have honor. They played dodge ball and learned how to be a team player. Lt. Gatchel showed the middle schoolers Blindside, Men of Honor, and Freedom Writers to teach the students about honor and respect. On Friday a rock wall was assembled and students conquered their fears by climbing to the top. Raegan Todd pauses for a photos on her journey to the top.

For the last two weeks School have been studying all about bees and the important role that they play in our environment. Special guest Mrs. Katrina Peddie of Deseret Hives came and brought an observatory hive so the children could see the life cycle of the bee up close and personal. She spoke with the children about what a powerful natural resource bees are, from honey and wax production, to pollination. Our local area is well known for the Tupelo trees that grow up and down the Apalachicola River, and this allows the bees to produce one of the highest grades of honey in the world, Tupelo honey. Everyone enjoyed the visit and especially the sampling of Tupelo honey. It was a sweet treat for all! RIGHT: Katrina Peddie showing her box of live bees and honey to the students.

The Magnolia Garden, in the Gardens of the Big Bend at the University of Florida/IFAS North Florida Research and Education Center in Quincy (NFREC) has been named by NAPCC, the North American Plant Collections Consortium as part of the national collection of Magnolia species. NAPCC is a network of 16 botanical gardens and arboreta working together to coordinate a continent-wide approach to plant preservation and is a program of the American Public Gardens Association in cooperation with the USDA Agricultural Research Service.As leaves fall from our deciduous trees, you may notice some curious-looking growths. Typically hidden by foliage, here are some of the oddities you might be seeing. Lichens Lichens look menacing, but they are not harmful to the plants they grow on. Lichens are the crusty, leafy or hairy gray-green growth that you often see growing on the bark of trees and shrubs. You also see lichens growing on old Lichens are a symbiotic organism composed of an alga and a fungus. The alga in the lichen photosynthesizes and provides the food that the organism needs through the energy of the sun. The fungus provides the body of the organism. They are not parasites or pathogens. They dont attack or damage plants. But oftentimes, you see lichen growing vigorously on plants that appear sick or of low vigor. This is simply because a plant in low vigor typically loses its foliage and allows more light to penetrate its canopy. This gives the sun-loving lichen an advantage. They are not causing the problem they are simply taking advantage of the situation. Cottony Cushion Scale This insect often appears in clusters at the tips of trees and shrubs. Cottony cushion scale is a strange-looking white insect that can infest many different types of plants but are often seen on citrus, maples, pittosporums and magnolia. The mature females have bright orange-red, yellow, or brown bodies. The most conspicuous feature is the large than the body. The egg sac contains about 1000 eggs. Like other scales, cottony cushion scale decreases the vitality of its host by sucking sap from the leaves, twigs, branches, and trunk. Feeding can result in defoliation and dieback of twigs and small branches when infestations are extremely heavy. Like other soft scales, cottony cushion scale excretes honeydew, which is usually accompanied by blackish, sooty mold growth and ants. Horticultural oil kills all stages of scales that are present, and often provides good control. Oil products may be used on tolerant plants during either the growing or dormant seasons, depending on the product. Refer to the product label for guidelines on plant sensitivity and temperature limitations. Galls Galls occur on a wide variety of plants. These growths may be the result of fungi, bacteria, nematodes or mites, but insects are the prime cause. These growths are called galls because they contain large amounts of tannin, a substance which has a very bitter taste. Long ago, they were known as gallnuts because they tasted as bitter as gall. Galls are found most commonly on the stems and leaves, but also occur on trunks. They occur in almost every conceivable form and color, and their shapes range from spheres to tubes. The surface may be smooth, hairy or covered with spines. Galls seem to cause a lot of concern to the general public. Generally they do not seriously harm the plant. Most ornamental plants and trees are not apparently injured even by relatively large numbers of galls. After formation, it is impossible to eliminate the galls or the pests with insecticides because they are enclosed and well protected inside the gall. To prevent some of these oddities, remember to keep your plants healthy by performing appropriate cultural practices. by Theresa Friday, Horticulture Extension Agent, Santa Rosa County Oddities appear as leaves fall Scale cottony cushion Gall BlakleyCelebrating Magnolias workshop planned for February 18 in Quincy Located in BristolLAND CLEARING-Private drives and roads -Food plots -Home sites -Small acreageCall Eddie Nobles at (850) 643-5390 or (850) 447-0449 or Chas (850) 447-0849Eddie NoblesLAND CLEARING, EXCA V A TION AND ROOT RAKING FOR:Heres an ideal way to get into the mood for spring planting: Join the Arbor Day Foundation and receive 10 free trees to plant when the weather turns warm.

Call us!Premium namebrand tires TALLAHASSEE Over the past weekend, the Florida Forest Service hosted wounded warriors on Lake Talquin State Forest as part of Operation Outdoor Freedom (OOF). Through the program, four wounded veterans were treated to a special opportunity deer hunt on the Lines Tract at Lake Talquin State Forest. The hunters were provided a weekend full of outdoor all of which was made possible through donations from businesses and families in Gadsden, Liberty, Leon and Wakulla counties. The OOF hunting camp was based out of the Florida Forest Service Bear Creek Educational facility, which is a fully capable ADA facility allowing veterans with limited mobility to participate in the event. Oversize shooting houses were constructed and placed in locations to allow for easy travel and accessibility for the hunters. Operation Outdoor Freedom is a program of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services which allows the Florida Forest Service to designate special areas on Florida state forests for use by wounded warriors of the United State Armed Forces. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam worked with Senator Alan Hays and Representative Greg Stuebe to pass the measure during the 2011 legislative session that established Operation Outdoor Freedom. This program builds on an existing partnership between the Florida Forest Service and the Wounded Warrior Project, which has hosted hunts on Florida State Forests in recent years. With the fall deer hunt completed, plans for the Operation Outdoor Freedom spring turkey hunt on Lake Talquin State Forest are under way.
