Three of the break-ins happened in Calhoun County. Three more were discovered Monday in Liberty County. All happened in the daylight hours and in each case, the doors were kicked in. Theyre not even slowing down to see if the doors are unlocked, said Major Roman Wood of the Calhoun that one of the damaged doors was unsecured and the thieves could have easily walked in. Theres more than one, theyre well organized and theyre in and out quickly, Wood said. They leave destruction behind, dumping out drawers and knocking things over as they ransack the home.

He passed him as he walked into the store and said, Good morning, sir. Sangster replied, Whats it to you? as he walked off. Inside the store, the trooper found everyone was watching the man as he crossed Hwy. 71 and went into M&W Thrift Shop. A short time later, he emerged from the shop with the owner, Mike Mills. The two appeared to be arguing. Sangster walked off. Someone in the store said, Look, hes coming back. But he didnt return to the Chevron; he continued down the road. He was walking in an angry, agitated manner, walking in and out of businesses, brandishing a hand saw. Sangster walked north on the east side of the road. He holding the hand saw like youd hold a knife. It was odd the way he was carrying it. At times, he was swinging it like a sword. Some people came out of a business and walked past him on their way to their truck. He said something to into their vehicle, rolled up the windows and sped away. Sangster continued on down the road toward Ace Hardware. Concerned that he might go to the school, the trooper who, by now was following behind in his patrol car contacted the let him out of your sight. leaving the school behind. He was glad he was getting away from the population. As we get to the edge of town, he walks into a driveway worried because he knew a couple who lived there and was aware their small children were often playing outside this time of day. The trooper pulled into the driveway and suddenly saw Sangster step out from the bushes. He takes the saw, lays it on who later realized he had been ambushed and that Sangster had brought me where he wanted me got out of his patrol car. I got to talking to him and asked for his matter. Sangster then replied, Ill show you what matters as reached in his pocket for a knife and lunged forward.

When asked how much alcohol he had consumed, Maxwell replied, Too much. Maxwell agreed to submit to a series of sobriety tests but did not do well, according to the arrest report.

I think that 19 Republican president debates are enough. They are so predictable. Gingrich is going to attack Romney for being a rich, stuffed shirt. Romney is going to counter that Gingrich is nothing more than a lobbyist and a namedropper because Gingrich has invoked his relationship with Ronald Reagan about 900 times. Ron Paul and Rick Santorum are 100% predictable in their worldview. Ron Paul wants to return America to about 1780 when the country was individual states and governed by the Articles of Confederation. If by some thunderclap of bad luck Ron Paul should become president of the US, start buying gold because he would return the countrys your gold boys would be in tall cotton. Santorum has only one card in his political deck. Stop abortions. Should Santorum become president of the US, Santorum and Republicans in state legislatures would be giddy with the prospects of overturning Roe v. Wade and passing severe state laws that ban abortion, contraceptives and anything else personal having to do with sex. Its that Puritan instinct of needing to punish every sinner. Republicans blame that old, biased, liberal media for warping the minds of the American people. My problem with the media, both left and right, is that they report about half the facts. As my grandmother would say, both sides tell the story in their best interest. An example is the Keystone Pipeline deal. Rightwing media would lead you to believe that President Obama refused to sign the pipeline plan because he caved to left-wing tree-hugging environmentalist. The mainstream media fails to tell the full pipeline store which is that the environmental issue was raised by the Republican governor of Oklahoma, and rightly so, because the proposed location of the pipeline at that time cut through Oklahoma and threatened Oklahomas underground water aquifer. With resistance from concerned citizens, the pipeline company has gone back to the planning phase to determine where the pipeline will be laid. President Obama didnt approve the plan because there is no plan. Republicans in congress forced a decision on the plan within twomonths which did not allow enough time to resolve the location of the pipeline. So, President Obama correctly refused to sign off on a plan that was not complete. But Republicans, particularly Republican presidential candidates have made political hay out ing that Obama caused the loss of thousands of jobs because he wouldnt sign off on a pipeline to nowhere. The main stream media was too lazy or too incompetent to report all the facts which would have told both sides of the story. As I was writing this column, I received my email newsletter from Congressman Jeff Miller, congressional representative from the 1st District of Florida. Millers newsletter was a critique of President Obamas State of the Union speech. Miller gave Obama credit for killing bin Laden, but the other 99% of his newsletter was the usual scathing denouncement of anything Obama. When President Obama called on Congress to pass his jobs bill, Miller makes the point that the Republicans in the House have sent the Senate 27 job bills, none of which have been enacted. Ive looked at those bills and they are the usual call for lower taxes on the job creators and deregulation of the market. That is the most economically ignorant statement ever. But its repeated a thousand times over, and the guy on the street believes it. A local mover and shaker in my county who pretends to be an economist repeated the same inane comments in a local newspaper. Reducing taxes and regulations has absolutely nothing to do with hiring workers. A business will only hire a worker if the demand for the businesss goods and services warrant hiring a worker to accommodate the additional demand. Someone should buy 535 copies of the book, Economics for Dummies, then give one to every representative and senator, Republicans and Democrats, as required reading. But, wishful thinking. It appears that Americas representative form of government is incapable of dealing with Americas domestic, economic and foreign policy issues. The two political parties are like kids on a schoolyard

FEBRUARY 8, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 COMMENTARY WASHINGTON For all the campaign rhetoric we heard in Florida, there was not a single serious proposmortgage crisis. Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich hammered away at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, government-backed lenders that conservatives love to hate, even though both of them have invested in these tainted institutions. Florida has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the country, and nationwide, a quarter of all homeowners are under water, meaning they owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth. The housing situanumbers of people than it was during the Great Depression when home ownership wasnt as widespread. Today a persons home is typically the biggest single source of wealth and well-being, and when its value takes a nosedive, the result is devastating on the individual, and on the broader housing market. President Obama is trying once again to beef up his administra anticipated four million homeowners obtaining relief, only a million people were able to access the program fordable. Congress is unlikely to sign off on the presidents latest proposal, not with the likely Republican nominee arguing that the housing market should be allowed to hit bottom. Republicans overall oppose government intervention and believe that the market will right itself. Well, its been three years since the bottom fell out, and its becoming more and more obvious that the only way and buy foreclosed homes, and either rent them or sell them at a price that preserves the market value of the neighborhood. Obamas solution is to allow homeowners who are rate. Sounds good, but the problem with that is if you owe $140,000 on a home that is now worth $100,000, you wont be too happy paying back that loan even if your interest rate is reduced to 3.25 percent. The administrations plan has other problems as well, a cap of some $729,000 on eligible properties, which appears to be a grand sum but is the equivalent of a starter home in high-end urban areas like Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. Applicants also must be current on their payments, a very high bar in this economy. The only real solution is debt forgiveness, and thats where the banks come in. Theyre the ones who could and should do it. If theres a culprit in the housing mess, its the banks. They made a lot of money writing up loans they knew would not be repaid, and they bundled up those mortgages and passed them along a chain of cept the hapless borrower whose home got foreclosed. they got bailed out and held onto the money. They should do the responsible thing, which is to reduce the principal owed by people who saw the value of their homes drop. People would be more inclined to pay a higher interest rate on a lower principal, than a lower interest rate on a higher mortgage than their houses are worth. Getting the banks to carry their weight in cleaning up the housing market would be a good deal for the banks and for homeowners. The banks wouldnt lose money; they could make up the difference with the higher interest rate. And more homeowners could avoid foreclosure, which destroys neighborhoods for a generation. 2012 U.S. NEWS SYNDICATE, INC.

Do you know who it is? -B. L., Yorba Linda, CAWe havent met her personally, but the word on the streets is that she is the ghost of Lady Jane Grey (1537-1554), a very young woman whose 9-day tenure as the queen of England was cut short when she was-wellhanged on February 12, 1554. She is sometimes called the Nine-Day Queen. Lady Jane was the great-granddaughter of Henry VII. She married the Duke of Northumber lands son, regent for the then ailing Edward VI. When Edward VII died, Lady Jane was named queen with the help of her husbands father. Mary I (1516-1558), the daughter of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, was widely preferred over Lady Jane Grey, however. Edward VI was Marys halfbrother and many considered her the rightful heir to the throne. Lady Jane and her unfortunate husband were both executed, and Mary I, a devout Catholic, became queen. Sometime later, she became known as bloody Mary because of her execution of many Protestants, in an effort to reestablish papal authority. Perhaps its only to be expected, then, that Lady Janes ghost would come back to haunt the tower on February 12, her execution day. By common reports, she was last spotted on this day in 1957. Whether she has omitted visits since then, or simply hasnt been spotted, is anyones guess.Can you tell me be used in a brides tussie-mussie bouquet? -J. P., Harrisville, N.H. Wedding-day nosegays, tussie-mussies, or posies once included myrtle, a symbol of love; coriander, a symbol of hidden virtues; sage, for domestic virtues; or rosemary, for remembrance and happiness. Similarly, the groom might wear a sprig of rosemary to signal his loyalty and constancy. Heliotrope also denoted constancy. A sprig of yarrow, believed to bestow 7 years of love, might accompany a wedding gift. For the same reasons, any of these might be chosen as appropriate strewing herbs for the church or home. On the other hand, fendames rocket (deceit), spiderwort (transient love), mustard seed (indifference), or worm wood (absence) would be heartily shunned. Bridal hope chests were scented and protected with lavender, scented geraniums, cedar tips, rosemary, or sage. Pink or red rose petals were gathered and strewn in wedding aisles, stuffed into sachets to accompany the brides apparel, or added to potpourris. Various listings of and their uses have been published since the early 19th century. What was once common knowledge in colonial America has become almost forgot ten, but many gardeners tradition of associating How did the planets in our solar system get their names? -R. L., Hamilton, OHMost of the planets were discovered in ancient times, and most cultures named them after their gods. The Romans followed this practice, and because the Roman Empire dominated so much of the Western world, their names for the known planets were accepted as the norm. By the 18th century, when Uranus was discovered, the precursor of what is now the International Astronomical Union (IAU) decreed that the names of all heavenly bodies, those already discovered and those yet to be, must be approved by the group. The members agreed that the known planets would retain their original Roman names and that any future discoveries must follow suit. The discover ers would be allowed to make recommendations, but the international committee would have the schel, the discoverer of Uranus, wanted to name it Georgius after Britains king, but he was over ruled. The name Uranus, grandfather of the god Jupiter, was chosen instead. In the 19th century, the IAU approved the name Neptune, and in the 20th century, it approved Pluto (although, nowadays, Pluto is classified as dwarf planet). FEB. 6, MONDAY -President Dwight D.

Liberty County Deputy Adam Walker was behind a white car traveling east on SR 20 when he noticed the driver cross over the center line of the road four separate times. Walker pulled the car over at Hoecake Road to give Stephen C. Hanf a verbal warning and noticed him moving around in the vehicle. Hanf would not acknowledge the deputy and did not roll down his window when he approached. Walker opened the drivers door, identified himself and while speaking with Hanf, noticed the distinct odor of green marijuana. After having Hanf exit the car, the deputy continued to smell marijuana on him. Walker was joined at the scene by Deputy Bobby Revell, who was standing by the passenger window and spotted a plastic baggie of marijuana in a compartment of the drivers door. Several items were seized during a search of the vehicle, including the Ziplock bag with approximately 3.7 grams of marijuana. When they opened a red bandana that had also been in the drivers door, deputies found four more Ziplock bags and a paper towel which together held approximately 11.5 grams of marijuana. Also found wrapped in the bandana was one hydrocodone pill, four and a yellow pill found to be a muscle relaxer. Hanf was arrested and taken into custody. His 11-year-old daughter and a friend of hers, also 11, were riding with him. The daughter was turned over to a relative; the other girl was picked up by Hanf was later released on $3,500 bond.

Page 18 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL FEBRUARY 8, 2012 2011 Annual Drinking Water Quality ReportWere pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from four (4) wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes. In 2011 the Florida Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are three potential sourcfor this system with a moderate susceptibility level. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program swapp or they can be obtained from Michael Wahlquist at the City of Bristol (850) 643-2261. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Michael Wahlquist at the City of Bristol (850) 643-2261. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on Monday, folmonth, at City Hall beginning at 6:30 pm EST. City of Bristol routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2011. Data obtained before January 1, 2011, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City of Bristol is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure onds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: (A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. (D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immunocompromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/ AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EP A/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800) 4264791. We at the City of Bristol work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community, our way of life and our childrens future.

A delicious meal was held in their honor at the new Blountstown High School cafeteria. The Blountstown High culinary arts class provided us with an outstanding meal. It was an exciting opportunity for me to recognize those students for a job well done. We now have two outstanding culinary arts program in the school district. Good job, Nancy Mears, and your most deserving students. We talk so much about tests and academic achievements that some time we get great day to be able to recognize some of the unsung heroes in our school system. I had a marvelous time of fellowship with my fellow educators. It was such an uplifting experience to hear our principals and district staff say such nice things about people that they worked with every day, and that they recognized the great contributions that were made by these people to their programs and the school district. We are a great school district because of all the effort and hard work given by these people to their important place in the school district. In football sometimes everybody gets a large amount of credit without mentioning the job done by the offensive linemen. Sometimes it is the same way in the school system. We give so much credit to the academic side, we fail to mention the important roles played outside of the classroom. We would be in sad shape without bus drivers, lunchroom workers, custodians, maintenance and tech personnel, secretaries, para professionals, secretaries, and data entry people. Many of those are multi-task people and their job description doesnt system. The Bible often refers to the church as a body where all the parts work together to carry out the duties that make it so successful. It is the same type thing in the school system. We need everyone doing their jobs to make it work smoothly. It was so very nice that we could take the time to recognize and honor those who are a valuable part of our organization. The school district is an organization that is bigger than any of us, but in turn needs all of us to work hard to promote and enhance the organization. We should each one work hard to make the system better, and be proud to be a part of it. In turn the organization should recognize that it is people that make it great, and they should be rewarded and recognized when they contribute so much to that organization. Last Thursday was such a day. Nice things were said to give tribute to our honored employees. Heather Leonard was our Employee of the Year, and Renee Wallace was our Teacher of the Year. All of our well-deserving personnel were recognized for their contributions, and rewarded with an apprecia tion check. It was a great day, and I will cherish those memories in my heart for a long time to come. All of this time of honor and recognition is something that should be shared with all of the citizens of this great county. It is your system that we represent, and strive to make you proud to be a part of.

Call 762-2020. 2-8, 2-15 It seems the deer in my neck of the woods have been a lot more nocturnal than usual, and my hunting season has been pitiful thus far. As I type this, I have harvested only one deer. Now I did shoot a nice fall gobbler sporting an 11-inch beard on my twothirds-of-an-acre Sopchoppy River lot, but that hardly counted, since I was really tryin to get a doe during Zone Ds antlerless deer season. Anyway, Im not throwin in the towel just yet, but it has been very frustrating, and thats no lie. But, theres still lots of deer-hunting days west of where I live in Tallahassee, and Im thankful Ive got some good friends who have offered to take me on some of their leases. So, if youre like me and still have plenty of room left in your freezer, or if you live in the central or southern part of the state and dont mind hunting with a primitive weapon, then point your pickup northwest, because Zone Ds deer seasons still goin strong on private lands and on a lot of the wildlife management areas (WMAs). The second phase, if you will, of muzzleload ing gun season runs from Feb. 20-26 in this part of the Panhandle. This unique late season, which occurs only in Zone D, was established to allow hunters the chance to hunt the rut, which runs from mid-January through February in this part of the state. A $5 muzzleloading gun permit is required to hunt during this season, where, on private land, hunters have the choice of using a muzzleloader, bow or crossbow. On WMAs, this post-season is referred to as the archery/muzzleloading gun season. Hunters can use bows or muzzleloaders, but not crossbows unless they possess a disabled crossbow permit. Hunters who choose to hunt with a bow must have the $5 archery permit, and those using a muzzle loader need the muzzleloading gun permit. The most common kinds of game to hunt during this season are deer and wild hogs. Only bucks may be taken (even if you use a bow), and one antler must be at least 5 inches in length. If youre hunting deer, make sure you have the $5 deer permit. On private land, the daily bag limit is two. Bag limits and antler size for deer on WMAs can differ, so please consult the area brochure before you hunt. Wild hogs arent considered game animals on private lands, and because of this, they can be taken yearround by most weapons with no bag or size limits. On most WMAs, theres also no bag or size limits, and hogs are legal to take during most hunting seasons except spring turkey. bag and size limits do apply, so check the areas brochure to make sure. No dogs may be used in the pursuit of deer during this season. However, leashed dogs can be used to track a wounded deer if necessary. And its important to note that no turkeys may be taken during this season. Bows and crossbows must have a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds, and hand-held releases on bows are permitted. Broadheads used in taking deer must have at least two sharpened edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch. During this season, you may use only muzzle loaders that take black powder or a non-nitro209 primers). You may not use muzzleloaders that require smokeless powder or those with selfcontained cartridge ammunition capabilities. For or more balls must be 20-gauge or larger. And youre allowed to take deer and hogs over feeding stations on private land, but its illegal to do that on WMAs. Eleven of the WMAs in Zone D have the late archery/muzzleloading gun season, and if you plan to hunt any of em, you must have the $26 management area permit as well. Nine of those areas dont require a quota permit during this period: Apalachicola, Apalachicola River, Blackwater, River, Point Washington, Tates Hell and Yellow River WMAs. The only ones that do are Chipola River and Perdido River WMAs. So if youre like me and not quite ready to give up on deer hunting, have no fear, cause Februarys here! Grab your favorite primitive gun and head over to Zone D where the ruts goin on hot and heavy. Tony Young looks forward each year to hunting Zone Ds late muzzleloading season, because the deer are still in rut on a couple of the properties he gets invited to hunt on.Deer hunting still goin strong on private lands and WMAsOutta the Woods by Tony Young

PENSACOLA Tax preparers often offer Refund Anticipation Loans to allow you to immediately receive your tax refund. However, R AL s are not an actual refund from the IR S but are a short-term loan from the company. According to the Consumer Federation of America, the interest rate and administration fees on RALs can range from 40% to over 700% of your refund. In 2009 Americans spent $664 million on RALs and other fees for money that would arrive in two weeks. Refund Anticipation Loans may do more harm than good and just arent worth the instant access they provide, said Norman Wright, president and CEO of your BBB. Thats a tremendous amount of money to spend to borrow your own money for two weeks. The RAL is an estimation made by the tax preparer of your refund amount, not a statement from the government. As a result, your refund could actually be less than the amount of your loan. This means you may end up owing the tax preparer more money than you received in your refund. Some people believe they cant wait the two weeks for their refund because of debts and bills that need to be paid. A better option than taking a RAL is to work with debt collectors and let them know a refund is on the way. Losing a portion of the money to a loan only puts you further behind. cally and requesting to have your money direct deposited. This is a much easier process to do on your own now entire process usually takes 10-14 days, you will receive 100 percent of your money and not have another loan to pay off as you would with a RAL.BBB warns about Refund Anticipation Loans
