MARCH 7, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 March 10-11 is Youth Spring Tur key Hunt Weekend in Florida. This Saturday-Sunday hunt, which occurs the weekend prior to the opening of spring turkey season in each hunting zone, was established in 2011 on private property. It was such a huge success that this year the two-day hunt also is included on 78 of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) wildlife management areas (WMAs). Only youths under 16 years old are allowed to harvest a turkey while supervised by an adult, 18 years or older. On private land, no license or permit is required of the youth or supervising adult, unless the adult plans to help call-in the bird or otherwise participate in the hunt. In that case, the supervisor will need a hunting license and turkey permit. To prevent overcrowding, most of the 78 participating WMAs require a youth spring turkey quota permit, and if the adult supervisor is going to attempt to call in a bird on any of these WMAs, he or she also will need a management area permit in addition to the hunting license and turkey permit. There are still youth spring turkey quota permits available for some areas, and they can be obtained by those hunters under 16 years of age MyFWC.com/License or at a license agent, beginning at 10 a.m. EST on March 8. There are also 23 WMAs that do not require a quota permit. Those are: Apalachicola, Aucilla, Big Bend Spring Creek Unit, Big Bend Tide Swamp Unit, Blackwater, Choctawhatchee River (only the south portion of the area), Escambia River, Herky Huffman/Bull Creek, J.W. Corbett, Joe Budd, Jumper Creek, Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, Kissimmee River, Lake Monroe, Lochloosa, Log LandAucilla, Osceola, Richloam, Steinhatchee Springs, Three Lakes and Upper St. Johns River Marsh. For all of these hunts, it is important to note that adults are not allowed to do the shooting; only the kids may harvest a bird. And on WMAs, the used during spring turkey seasons are shotguns and muzzleloading shotguns, using shot no larger than No. 2.Take a kid hunting during Youth Spring Turkey Hunt Weekend The updated list now includes:CALHOUN COUNTY The latest candidate list for the upcoming Calhoun County election includes: Sheriff: Kenneth B.

In spite of the doom and damnation screeching from the right-wingers, particularly the four Republican presidential wannabees, Americas economy is improving, slowly but improving. The stock market is in the 13,000 range up 62% from a low of 8,000 at the end of the Bush era. The NASDAQ is also at its highest in a decade. This increase in stock trading is an indication of investor conCorporate America is hiring more people. The unemployment rate is slowly declining. Gross National Product is growing at a 2% to 3% rate. Nevertheless, a small percentage growth for the worlds largest economy equates to a greater rate of economic activity than does a 5% increase in a smaller economy, as is the case of growth and economic activity in China. The February 29, 2012 edition of the Federal Reserve Board Beige Book, which is an assessment of economic activity in Americas 12 Federal Reserve districts, indicates that throughout the U.S. economy there are positive signs of recovery. A bright spot in the economy is that manufacturing in all 12 Federal Reserve districts is increasing. Consumer spending and tourism are increasing, a good sign because consumer spending creates demand, which then has a positive effect on other elements of the economy such as manufacturing, shipping and logistics. Tourism has increased along the Gulf coast. The snowbirds came back. A real test of the tourism industry will be spring break for colleges. My bet is that colPanama City in the next couple of months of college spring breaks. Automobile sales are increasing. General Motors regained the title of largest automobile manufacturing company in the world. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the right-wingers were willing to let GM go down the tubes. President Bush made the President Obama followed up. Both were correct in their actions, but this can never be explained to or accepted by the right-wingers. saving Wall Street. I agree with the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), but in hindsight, I think that the government could have been more selective in its plan have been allowed to fail. Also, I think that the government should have instituted ironclad rules and regulaHowever, thanks to Republicans protecting their Wall Street benefactors, all we got was a watered-down Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which Republicans continue to denigrate and attempt to neuter. Republicans and some Democrats oppose any legislation that protects the system. Why? Politicians are bought by big bucks from Wall Street. The FDIC reported that the banking/ lion during the last quarter. Therefore, the government should be repaid all the TARP monies with plenty of interest.

The developers really believed in the build it and they will come myth. More than once, when I evaluated one of the projects, I wanted to say to the bank and the developer, Are you nuts? They were nuts, and today, many residential subdivisions in the Panhandle lie fallow, growing weeds and are now worth about 40% of the original sale price. Republicans and right-wingers with their economic ignorance showing trash President Obamas efforts at stimulating the economy. The only reason that the economy is gaining a foothold again is that the stimulus created demand. Lost on the right-wingers is the fact that there has to be demand for goods and services for businesses to hire workers. Businesses do not hire people because they get a tax break. Republicans only remember President Reagans tax cuts in the early 1980s, but President Reagan also inThis government stimulus increased economic activity and decreased unemployment. In economics there is a thing called Okuns Law which states: For every 3% increase in output, there is a 1% decrease in unemployment. Americas economic conundrum is that President Obama wants to stimulate the economy in the short term with infrastructure spending while the Republicans tout austerity and less government spending. Government spending in the short-term creates demand, which reduces unemployment. Austerity and no government spending kills economic activity. Keynesian economic theory is to spend in the shortterm and reduce debt in the long term after the economy recovers. Will that happen? Nope, our representative government is incapable of coping with this fundamental economic issue.

You may also consider discarding the old mulch around the shrub and apply a layer of fresh mulch.

Flowers will continue to drop for several weeks, so its important to pick up blooms several times a week. Scout for tea scale. One of the most common insect pests of camellia is a scale insect known as tea scale. ing pest. These small, sessile, white, thin, sap-sucking insects can build up large numbers if you do not regularly inspect your plants and take corrective measures when yellowing on the upper surface of the leaves.

However, as individual leaves age, they will fall from the shrub and are is not unusual for camellia to drop up to leaves are developing, there is no need for concern. The most important reason for pruning camellias is to improve the overall health of the plant. Many times, camellias that have not been pruned in a few years will develop dead or deteriorating twigs. Removing the dead and dying limbs will minimize the possibility of diseases such as dieback and many instances, camellias that have been neglected for a number of years will become infested with scale insects. Pruning is an effective way to provide for better coverage of chemical sprays and increase air circulation. Lichens are warning signs. Lichens are gray-green to green mossy growths on the stems of old, neglected camellias. The lichen is a combination of a fungus and an alga that grows symbiotically. They are not parasitic watering, and mulching for better growing conditions. Fertilizer applications help to achieve maximum ing but before new growth starts. With many fertilizers, small amounts at frequent intervals are better than heavy applications. Special camellia fertilizers are available at your local stores. One application in early spring after blooming should be followed by a second application in mid June to early July. Scatter the fertilizer evenly on top of the mulch and away from the main stem of the plant. Water the fertilizer into the soil. Do not fertilize after July, so the plants will have a longer time to harden off and avoid freeze damage.
