Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL MARCH 21, 2012 COMMENTARY Late Night LaughsA RECAP OF RECENT OBSER V ATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.The war on womens healthcareYou cant make this stuff up. Only in America could a womans uterus become a political football. Of all the unemployment and economic issues facing Americans, why are politicians, particularly Republican social conservatives like presidential wannabee Rick Santorum, embroiled in a war on women and their healthcare? Social conservatives claim that the liberals are waging a war on religion. Thats always a good spin from the right because in sanctimo nious America, religion can do no wrong. Most people believe in the separation of church and state, but extreme social conservatives like Santorum would establish a theolo gy-based government. Should that happen, American society would not be any different from the Muslims and their Islamic religion. The question for Americans, par ticularly those that have the incli nation to vote, is what role religion should play in American politics and in our day-to-day activities. If Santorum should prevail and become president, then do we have a Christian nation? Would the Jews like that? How about the Catholics? What about the Wiccans? Would they want a piece of the action? Many other religions are represented in the United States, includ ing Jainism, Shinto, Taoism, Caodaism, Thelema, Wicca, Santera, Rastafari movement, Heathenism, Kemetism, Paganacht, Hellenism, Asatru, Theodism, Odinism, Religio Romana, Natib Qadish, Kaldanism, Druidry, Zoroastrianism, Vodou, Jediism and many forms of New Age spirituality. My view is that religion is a private matter. Worship whatever you wish. I would think that a byproduct of religion would be peace, love and understanding for fellow man, but not so. As with most things, the view of religious groups is frequently, My religion is better than starts. Ive used the following quote before, but I think the quote says it best relative to separation of church and state. It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so. Robert (1907-1988) Ive often wondered about the social conservatives preoccupation with the female reproductive process. I knowit starts with preventing abortions. I got that, but they cant drop the issue at that point. They keep digging the hole without a clue about when to stop legislat ing or better said, stop denigrating women and their health issues. In the current legislative year, Republican-dominated state legisla tures have proposed over 2,000 antiabortion bills. In Virginia, the Republican governor, Bob McDonald, signed into law a bill that directs that a woman contemplating an abortion must undergo an ultrasound exam and pay for it. Six other states do the same. It doesnt matter that her doctor does not think that an ultrasound exam is required; the government and the governor of Virginia knows best. Moreover, Republicans have the audacity to lecture the rest of us about smaller, less intrusive government. I cant think of anything more intrusive than the government interfering in a womans personal healthcare. But social conservatives cant contain themselves. It must be their Puritan instinct to punish sinners. There is a steady drumbeat from Republican governors about states rights vs. what they see as meddling from the federal government. Medicaid is one of those programs over which the states and the federal government joust. The states want the federal government to give them millions in block grants and the right to administer the Medicaid program as the states see war on women and womens right to healthcare, Republican governors are closing Planned Parenthood and other facilities that provide health care for women. The right-wing hue and cry is that Planned Parenthood is nothing more than abortion clin ics. But, for millions of women, par ticularly the working poor, Planned Parenthood is the only source of medical care for them. This latest hoohaa over womens reproductive rights started when someone decided that Obama Care required churches and religious or ganizations to provide birth control drugs via employer-provided health plans. Doing so violates the teach ings of the Church. President Obama agreed and ruled that faith-based organizations didnt have to provide contraceptives. The cost would be borne by the individu al and the insurance companies. But that acquiescence by the President was not enough. Right-wingers in the Arizona legislature are attempting to pass a bill stating that women in Arizona trying to get reimbursed for birth control drugs through their employersprovided plan could be required to prove that they are taking it for a medical reason such as acne, not to prevent pregnancy. So, in Arizona, employers will have to ask their female employees if they are taking birth control drugs, and, if so, why? If the reason is for contraception, then what? How moronic is this proposed legislation? Are all Republicans in the Arizona legislature bonkers? Whats next from Republicans.

MARCH 21, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 COMMENTARY NO HELP FOR SYRIA WASHINGTON A humanitarian disaster continues to unfold in Syria while the world stands by, unable and/ or unwilling to intervene. The Obama administration is convinced that the regime conducting the brutal crackdown on the political opposition will eventually fall, and that President Bashar Al-Assad will be driven from power. Its not a question of if Assad leaves, its a question of when, President Obama said this week. He has lost the legitimacy of his people. Obama may well be correct in saying that Assads days are numbered, but in the meantime, a lot of innocent people are suffering, and the politicians and the diplomats appear helpless in the face of the onslaught. Obama held a joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron Wednesday, and when a British reporter asked if they had is not Libya. There is no plan to intervene militarily or to arm the Syrian opposition. The two leaders said that injecting more arms into the they were really saying is they dont know the opposition, would be able to take hold in the country, or be any better once in power than Assad, particularly when it comes to U.S. and U.K. interests. Obama is not getting much pushback on his position with no American boots on the ground, or loss of life, and an opposition movement that seems prepared to govern. But none of the conditions that existed in Libya are present in Syria. There is no unanimity in the region about what to do, and everyone is acutely aware that if the Western powers stepped in, Syria could easily explode into a wider war with nightmare scenario that could easily spin out of control. Obama doesnt need another war on his hands, certainly not in the middle of his reelection campaign. The only way in the region, notably Turkey and Saudi Arabia, take a more assertive posture and call on Obama to back them up. There has been talk about the Saudis providing arms, and the Turks forcing open humanitarian routes to reach the population, treat the injured, and supply food and water to areas cut off by the governments crackdown. So far neither the Saudis nor the Turks have taken any concrete steps on behalf of the Syrian opposition. The Saudis must look at Assad and think that but for the grace of Allah, it could be them. They dont want to set a precedent in the region that could someday be turned on them. As for the Turks, they are best positioned to lend a helping hand to the Syrian people, but they are cautious and worry their is a member of NATO, and could try to make the case that NATO should mount a humanitarian mission to protect the people of Syria, just as it did in Libya. Turkey has so far chosen not to get out ahead of NATO, or to try to persuade NATO to take action in Syria. The result is that aside from a lot of hand-wringing, no one is doing anything meaningful to help the Syrian people. Assads departure may be inevitable, but all the inaction is allowing him to hang on longer than he should. 2012 U.S. NEWS SYNDICATE, INC. WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift

C., Albion, MEDoes it need one? It does it because it can, of course! The nuthatch has feet that are dispropor tionately large for its size, and its toes and claws are well developed and exceptionally strong. Distinguished by its ability to walk up or down trees, head always forward, and to climb horizontally along tree branches either right side up or upside down, the bluish-gray nuthatch leaves no bit of bark uninspected, lest there be an insect worth harvesting. The nuthatch is also in the habit of hiding seeds and nuts in holes in the bark, as insurance against a snowy day, so it depends upon its ability to return to the food locker for its next meal. The nuthatch takes its name from its habit of wedging nuts in a crevice in the bark and then hammering away at the shells with its straight, sharp beak to get to the kernel inside. At the bird feeder, its not fussy about seeds; it can crack almost anything. The white-breasted nuthatch is only the size of a house sparrow but youll see it year-round in southern portions of Maine especially, and its common in woodlands and orchards all over the United States and Canada. The whitebreasted nuthatch calls a merry yank-yank as it runs along a tree trunk; the slightly smaller redbreasted nuthatch says, ya-ya-ya! Both like abandoned woodpecker cavities for their nests. A neglected orchard is heaven to these birds. I heard that a woman invented B. H., Burlington, IAYes, in a way. A woman was behind the design, although it was the Glen Raven Mills company of Altamahaw, North out with the product. That companys president, Allen Gant, had listened to his wife complain about the complications and inconvenience of nylon stockings, girdles, garters, and garter belts. Gant devised the new Panti-Legs in 1959, of seamed stockings to a pair of nylon panties. Opaque stockings were just becoming popular then. Later improve ments made the panty hose more elastic and available in a wider variety of sizes, colors, and textures. Within a decade, in 1969, panty hose sales had skyrocketed to 624 million pairs, up from 200 million just the year before. The arrival of the miniskirt in 1965 made panty hose even more popular.Is it true that the word bowdlerize takes its name from N. B., Wellsboro, PAThats the unexpurgated truth. Thomas Bowdler (1754) was a doctor from Scotland who, being offended by certain passages in Shakespeare and other classics of his day, decided to edit his own editions. His Family Shakespeare, published in 1818, censored from the original text any phrases or words that he considered to be indeli cate or inappropriate for family reading groups. For his extreme sensi bility to the propriety of other peoples text, Thomas Bowdlers name became associated with the word bowdlerize, meaning expurgate. Youd be right in assuming that Mr. Bowdler was widely attacked for his prudery, but dont conjecture that he was widely ignored. Just the opposite! His 10-volume edition of the Family Shakespeare was reprinted several times over. He also bowdlerized Edward Gibbonss six-volume History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, and common conjectures say that it was his deletions from this work that may have led to his name being taken as the modern-day synonym for expurgate.

Mr. Nichols, a BHS Science teacher, added, I was very excited for the students to present the projects and I found myself very impressed by many of the displays. A common opinion from staff and students at the school is that science fairs like this are a wonderful opportunity for the kids to present and be proud of the academic skills that many other projects dont require. Nearly everyone on campus played a role in the success of the BHS Science Fair. Honors classes had to exert a little extra and participate in a quizzical teacherconducted interview regarding their project.

TALLAHASSEE Tallahassee Film Festival Board Chair Lou Armesto announced that the board has contracted the Florida State University College of Motion Picture Arts to provide the artistic and creative direction for the festival, with the goal of producing national visibility for the young arts organization. Its a natural, Armesto said. We have one of the top It makes perfect sense to leverage the expertise of its faculty to help the local festival that we are so proud of Frank Patterson, dean of the College of Motion Picture Arts said the college will focus on the long-term goal of growing the festival into a nationally recognized event cultural event for local audiences. To achieve the long-term goal, Patterson has turned to Paul Cohen, the executive director of the colleges Torchlight Program, to guide the future development of the festival. Cohen, a 30-year veteran of the indepen dent motion picture industry and an executive who has created several successful distribution and production industry business practices at Florida State. I am excited and very much looking forward to working with the board to cultivate new initiatives and resources to move this festival forward, Cohen said. As Cohen works behind the scenes to develop the festivals national footprint, Film School industry liai son Brenda Mills will serve as the festivals executive director and provide organizational leadership for the festival. Mills will work with community volunteers, including key leaders Chris Faupel and Staci Mellman, to orchestrate the annual events. Festival began as an initiative of the Knight Creative Communities Institute, with the goal of drawing and retaining young professionals and sustaining the areas high quality of life. Since it was established, the festival international and award-winning features. This is great news for Tallahassee, said Mike Pate, former publisher of the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper and an advisory board member of the Knight Creative Communities Institute. The FSU-TFF agreement is a smart town-gown relationship, one that combines the knowledge and professional experience of the univer the community. Recently, the festival board reconstituted its member ship with the goal of identifying leaders in the community who are both passionate about the arts and have the ability to donate and raise funds for the festival. That was the key to this whole deal, Patterson said. Without community leadership, the Film School cant push the festival to the next level. Nothing would make us prouder than to deliver a top-notch arts event to our friends, neighbors and colleagues here in Tallahassee.The Tallahassee Film Festival (TFF) is a 501(c)3 chari table organization whose mission is to nurture all aspects Tallahassee Film school to lead festival to national stage

This years focal point, secondhand smoke (SHS), is one of the issues that affects every single Floridian. The fourth annual Tobacco Free Florida Week runs from March 26 through April 1. Themed Fresh Air for All, the weeks events and messaging highlight the progress made in protecting Floridians from the harmful effects of SHS and look to the challenges ahead, as SHS continues to impact Floridas health. Despite the substantial decrease in smokers in the state and the growing trend of smoke-free policies -both indoors and out -many of Floridas most vulner able are still involuntarily affected by SHSs harmful chemicals, hundreds of which are toxic and almost 70 are proven to cause cancer. Each year, approximately 2,520 non-smoking adults in Florida die primarily from exposure to SHS. The health of Floridas chil dren, our most vulnerable citizens, should also be a top priority. Children are exposed to SHS more than adults and the consequences are alarming. Exposure to SHS increases a childs risk of respiratory infections and common ear infections. Children with asthma who are exposed to SHS are likely to experience more frequent and more severe attacks, which can put their lives in danger. We are committed to protect ing Floridians, especially children who sometimes do not have a voice. One of the most crucial ways to protect yourself and your loved ones from the dangers of SHS is to maintain a 100 percent smoke-free home, said Dr. Frank Farmer, Floridas State Surgeon General. While a home should always be a safe place for children, the fact is that the primary place young children breathe SHS is in their own homes. Outside of the home, Florida Clean Indoor Air Act (FCIAA), which was amended in 2003 to protect people from exposure to SHS and prohibit smoking in indoor workplaces. While the FCIAA protects many, countless Floridians are involuntarily exposed to the dangers of SHS in the nightlife industry, construction and other blue-collar industries while making a living and providing for their families. The bottom line is that there is no risk-free level of exposure to SHS. Even breathing SHS for short periods of time, like at a bar or a nightclub, can be dangerous. When you breathe SHS, tobacco smoke immediately seeps into the bloodstream and changes its chemistry so that the blood becomes stickier, allowing clots to form that can cause major blockages in already narrowed arteries. Damage to the heart can In addition to impacting heart health, exposure to SHS can increase the risk of many respiratory diseases, including emphysema, bronchitis, chronic airway obstruction and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Exposure to SHS also lung cancer, Floridas number-one cancer killer. Tobacco Free Florida offers a number of free and convenient resources to help Floridians quit tobacco.

Com mercial customers will receive similar cost reductions When I took the FPU job in June 2010, I promised we would do everything possible to bring down the cost of electricity, said Jeff Householder, FPU President. I am very pleased that we have been able to keep that promise. For years FPU was one of the lowest cost electric providers in the state. Its great to see our rates coming back into line with other electric providers in the be able to pass on additional cost savings in the future.

Cassandra Michelle Jones, who was traveling west on SR 20 around 3:40 p.m., told Calhoun County Deputy John Scheetz she didnt know what happened. A witness was able to give a description of the unusual accident and told the deputy the vehicle was on SR 20 when it suddenly swerved to the left and went over the curb on the south side of the road. The Jeep went through a metal awning at the former pawn shop next door to West End Liquors and slammed into a metal beam. The impact with the beam caused the rear of the Jeep to go up in the air and rotate, landing on a Nissan Altima parked at the far end of the liquor store. The right side of the Jeep kind of sideswiped the car, according to the deputy. The passengers side of the Jeep hit the drivers side of the car. The car was registered to Carlos Hall, whose wife works at the West End Liquors. The Jeep is registered to Joe Williams of Blountstown.

Only in America could a womans uterus become a political football. Of all the unemployment and economic issues facing Americans, why are politicians, particularly Republican social conservatives like presidential wannabee Rick Santorum, embroiled in a war on women and their healthcare? Social conservatives claim that the liberals are waging a war on religion. Thats always a good spin from the right because in sanctimonious America, religion can do no wrong. Most people believe in the separation of church and state, but extreme social conservatives like Santorum would establish a theology-based government. Should that happen, American society would not be any different from the Muslims and their Islamic religion. The question for Americans, particularly those that have the inclination to vote, is what role religion should play in American politics and in our day-to-day activities. If Santorum should prevail and become president, then do we have a Christian nation? Would the Jews like that? How about the Catholics? What about the Wiccans? Would they want a piece of the action? Many other religions are represented in the United States, including Jainism, Shinto, Taoism, Caodaism, Thelema, Wicca, Santera, Rastafari movement, Heathenism, Kemetism, Paganacht, Hellenism, Asatru, Theodism, Odinism, Religio Romana, Natib Qadish, Kaldanism, Druidry, Zoroastrianism, Vodou, Jediism and many forms of New Age spirituality. My view is that religion is a private matter. Worship whatever you wish. I would think that a byproduct of religion would be peace, love and understanding for fellow man, but not so. As with most things, the view of religious groups is frequently, My religion is better than starts. Ive used the following quote before, but I think the quote says it best relative to separation of church and state. It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so. Robert (1907-1988) Ive often wondered about the social conservatives preoccupation with the female reproductive process. I knowit starts with preventing abortions. I got that, but they cant drop the issue at that point. They keep digging the hole without a clue about when to stop legislating or better said, stop denigrating women and their health issues. In the current legislative year, Republican-dominated state legislatures have proposed over 2,000 antiabortion bills. In Virginia, the Republican governor, Bob McDonald, signed into law a bill that directs that a woman contemplating an abortion must undergo an ultrasound exam and pay for it. Six other states do the same. It doesnt matter that her doctor does not think that an ultrasound exam is required; the government and the governor of Virginia knows best. Moreover, Republicans have the audacity to lecture the rest of us about smaller, less intrusive government. I cant think of anything more intrusive than the government interfering in a womans personal healthcare. But social conservatives cant contain themselves. It must be their Puritan instinct to punish sinners. There is a steady drumbeat from Republican governors about states rights vs. what they see as meddling from the federal government. Medicaid is one of those programs over which the states and the federal government joust. The states want the federal government to give them millions in block grants and the right to administer the Medicaid program as the states see war on women and womens right to healthcare, Republican governors are closing Planned Parenthood and other facilities that provide healthcare for women. The right-wing hue and cry is that Planned Parenthood is nothing more than abortion clinics. But, for millions of women, particularly the working poor, Planned Parenthood is the only source of medical care for them. This latest hoohaa over womens reproductive rights started when someone decided that Obama Care required churches and religious organizations to provide birth control drugs via employer-provided health plans. Doing so violates the teachings of the Church. President Obama agreed and ruled that faith-based organizations didnt have to provide contraceptives. The cost would be borne by the individual and the insurance companies. But that acquiescence by the President was not enough. Right-wingers in the Arizona legislature are attempting to pass a bill stating that women in Arizona trying to get reimbursed for birth control drugs through their employersprovided plan could be required to prove that they are taking it for a medical reason such as acne, not to prevent pregnancy. So, in Arizona, employers will have to ask their female employees if they are taking birth control drugs, and, if so, why? If the reason is for contraception, then what? How moronic is this proposed legislation? Are all Republicans in the Arizona legislature bonkers? Whats next from Republicans.

MARCH 21, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 COMMENTARY NO HELpP FOR SYRIA WASHINGTON A humanitarian disaster continues to unfold in Syria while the world stands by, unable and/ or unwilling to intervene. The Obama administration is convinced that the regime conducting the brutal crackdown on the political opposition will eventually fall, and that President Bashar Al-Assad will be driven from power. Its not a question of if Assad leaves, its a question of when, President Obama said this week. He has lost the legitimacy of his people. Obama may well be correct in saying that Assads days are numbered, but in the meantime, a lot of innocent people are suffering, and the politicians and the diplomats appear helpless in the face of the onslaught. Obama held a joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron Wednesday, and when a British reporter asked if they had is not Libya. There is no plan to intervene militarily or to arm the Syrian opposition. The two leaders said that injecting more arms into the they were really saying is they dont know the opposition, would be able to take hold in the country, or be any better once in power than Assad, particularly when it comes to U.S. and U.K. interests. Obama is not getting much pushback on his position with no American boots on the ground, or loss of life, and an opposition movement that seems prepared to govern. But none of the conditions that existed in Libya are present in Syria. There is no unanimity in the region about what to do, and everyone is acutely aware that if the Western powers stepped in, Syria could easily explode into a wider war with nightmare scenario that could easily spin out of control. Obama doesnt need another war on his hands, certainly not in the middle of his reelection campaign. The only way in the region, notably Turkey and Saudi Arabia, take a more assertive posture and call on Obama to back them up. There has been talk about the Saudis providing arms, and the Turks forcing open humanitarian routes to reach the population, treat the injured, and supply food and water to areas cut off by the governments crackdown. So far neither the Saudis nor the Turks have taken any concrete steps on behalf of the Syrian opposition. The Saudis must look at Assad and think that but for the grace of Allah, it could be them. They dont want to set a precedent in the region that could someday be turned on them. As for the Turks, they are best positioned to lend a helping hand to the Syrian people, but they are cautious and worry their is a member of NATO, and could try to make the case that NATO should mount a humanitarian mission to protect the people of Syria, just as it did in Libya. Turkey has so far chosen not to get out ahead of NATO, or to try to persuade NATO to take action in Syria. The result is that aside from a lot of hand-wringing, no one is doing anything meaningful to help the Syrian people. Assads departure may be inevitable, but all the inaction is allowing him to hang on longer than he should. 2012 U.S. NeEWsS SynYNDicateICATE, IncNC.

C., Albion, MEDoes it need one? It does it because it can, of course! The nuthatch has feet that are disproportionately large for its size, and its toes and claws are well developed and exceptionally strong. Distinguished by its ability to walk up or down trees, head always forward, and to climb horizontally along tree branches either right side up or upside down, the bluish-gray nuthatch leaves no bit of bark uninspected, lest there be an insect worth harvesting. The nuthatch is also in the habit of hiding seeds and nuts in holes in the bark, as insurance against a snowy day, so it depends upon its ability to return to the food locker for its next meal. The nuthatch takes its name from its habit of wedging nuts in a crevice in the bark and then hammering away at the shells with its straight, sharp beak to get to the kernel inside. At the bird feeder, its not fussy about seeds; it can crack almost anything. The white-breasted nuthatch is only the size of a house sparrow but youll see it year-round in southern portions of Maine especially, and its common in woodlands and orchards all over the United States and Canada. The whitebreasted nuthatch calls a merry yank-yank as it runs along a tree trunk; the slightly smaller redbreasted nuthatch says, ya-ya-ya! Both like abandoned woodpecker cavities for their nests. A neglected orchard is heaven to these birds. I heard that a woman invented B. H., Burlington, IAYes, in a way. A woman was behind the design, although it was the Glen Raven Mills company of Altamahaw, North out with the product. That companys president, Allen Gant, had listened to his wife complain about the complications and inconvenience of nylon stockings, girdles, garters, and garter belts. Gant devised the new Panti-Legs in 1959, of seamed stockings to a pair of nylon panties. Opaque stockings were just becoming popular then. Later improve ments made the panty hose more elastic and available in a wider variety of sizes, colors, and textures. Within a decade, in 1969, panty hose sales had skyrocketed to 624 million pairs, up from 200 million just the year before. The arrival of the miniskirt in 1965 made panty hose even more popular.Is it true that the word bowdlerize takes its name from N. B., Wellsboro, PAThats the unexpurgated truth. Thomas Bowdler (1754) was a doctor from Scotland who, being offended by certain passages in Shakespeare and other classics of his day, decided to edit his own editions. His Family Shakespeare, published in 1818, censored from the original text any phrases or words that he considered to be indelicate or inappropriate for family reading groups. For his extreme sensi bility to the propriety of other peoples text, Thomas Bowdlers name became associated with the word bowdlerize, meaning expurgate. Youd be right in assuming that Mr. Bowdler was widely attacked for his prudery, but dont conjecture that he was widely ignored. Just the opposite! His 10-volume edition of the Family Shakespeare was reprinted several times over. He also bowdlerized Edward Gibbonss six-volume History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, and common conjectures say that it was his deletions from this work that may have led to his name being taken as the modern-day synonym for expurgate.

Mr. Nichols, a BHS Science teacher, added, I was very excited for the students to present the projects and I found myself very impressed by many of the displays. A common opinion from staff and students at the school is that science fairs like this are a wonderful opportunity for the kids to present and be proud of the academic skills that many other projects dont require. Nearly everyone on campus played a role in the success of the BHS Science Fair. Honors classes had to exert a little extra and participate in a quizzical teacherconducted interview regarding their project.

TALLAHASSEE Tallahassee Film Festival Board Chair Lou Armesto announced that the board has contracted the Florida State University College of Motion Picture Arts to provide the artistic and creative direction for the festival, with the goal of producing national visibility for the young arts organization. Its a natural, Armesto said. We have one of the top It makes perfect sense to leverage the expertise of its faculty to help the local festival that we are so proud of Frank Patterson, dean of the College of Motion Picture Arts said the college will focus on the long-term goal of growing the festival into a nationally recognized event cultural event for local audiences. To achieve the long-term goal, Patterson has turned to Paul Cohen, the executive director of the colleges Torchlight Program, to guide the future development of the festival. Cohen, a 30-year veteran of the independent motion picture industry and an executive who has created several successful distribution and production industry business practices at Florida State. I am excited and very much looking forward to working with the board to cultivate new initiatives and resources to move this festival forward, Cohen said. As Cohen works behind the scenes to develop the festivals national footprint, Film School industry liaison Brenda Mills will serve as the festivals executive director and provide organizational leadership for the festival. Mills will work with community volunteers, including key leaders Chris Faupel and Staci Mellman, to orchestrate the annual events. Festival began as an initiative of the Knight Creative Communities Institute, with the goal of drawing and retaining young professionals and sustaining the areas high quality of life. Since it was established, the festival international and award-winning features. This is great news for Tallahassee, said Mike Pate, former publisher of the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper and an advisory board member of the Knight Creative Communities Institute. The FSU-TFF agreement is a smart town-gown relationship, one that combines the knowledge and professional experience of the univerthe community. Recently, the festival board reconstituted its member ship with the goal of identifying leaders in the community who are both passionate about the arts and have the ability to donate and raise funds for the festival. That was the key to this whole deal, Patterson said. Without community leadership, the Film School cant push the festival to the next level. Nothing would make us prouder than to deliver a top-notch arts event to our friends, neighbors and colleagues here in Tallahassee.The Tallahassee Film Festival (TFF) is a 501(c)3 chari table organization whose mission is to nurture all aspects Tallahassee Film school to lead festival to national stage

This years focal point, secondhand smoke (SHS), is one of the issues that affects every single Floridian. The fourth annual Tobacco Free Florida Week runs from March 26 through April 1. Themed Fresh Air for All, the weeks events and messaging highlight the progress made in protecting Floridians from the harmful effects of SHS and look to the challenges ahead, as SHS continues to impact Floridas health. Despite the substantial decrease in smokers in the state and the growing trend of smoke-free policies -both indoors and out -many of Floridas most vulnerable are still involuntarily affected by SHSs harmful chemicals, hundreds of which are toxic and almost 70 are proven to cause cancer. Each year, approximately 2,520 non-smoking adults in Florida die primarily from exposure to SHS. The health of Floridas children, our most vulnerable citizens, should also be a top priority. Children are exposed to SHS more than adults and the consequences are alarming. Exposure to SHS increases a childs risk of respiratory infections and common ear infections. Children with asthma who are exposed to SHS are likely to experience more frequent and more severe attacks, which can put their lives in danger. We are committed to protecting Floridians, especially children who sometimes do not have a voice. One of the most crucial ways to protect yourself and your loved ones from the dangers of SHS is to maintain a 100 percent smoke-free home, said Dr. Frank Farmer, Floridas State Surgeon General. While a home should always be a safe place for children, the fact is that the primary place young children breathe SHS is in their own homes. Outside of the home, Florida Clean Indoor Air Act (FCIAA), which was amended in 2003 to protect people from exposure to SHS and prohibit smoking in indoor workplaces. While the FCIAA protects many, countless Floridians are involuntarily exposed to the dangers of SHS in the nightlife industry, construction and other blue-collar industries while making a living and providing for their families. The bottom line is that there is no risk-free level of exposure to SHS. Even breathing SHS for short periods of time, like at a bar or a nightclub, can be dangerous. When you breathe SHS, tobacco smoke immediately seeps into the bloodstream and changes its chemistry so that the blood becomes stickier, allowing clots to form that can cause major blockages in already narrowed arteries. Damage to the heart can In addition to impacting heart health, exposure to SHS can increase the risk of many respiratory diseases, including emphysema, bronchitis, chronic airway obstruction and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Exposure to SHS also lung cancer, Floridas number-one cancer killer. Tobacco Free Florida offers a number of free and convenient resources to help Floridians quit tobacco.

II am very pleased that we have been able to keep that promise. For years FPU was one of the lowest cost electric providers in the state. I Its great to see our rates coming back into line with other electric providers in the be able to pass on additional cost savings in the future.

Page 24 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL MARCH 21, 2012 by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA 35-year-old woman with a learners permit emerged with only a busted lip after losing control of a 1998 Jeep before it hit a metal beam and became wedged against another car in the parking lot at West End Liquors in Blountstown Monday afternoon. Cassandra Michelle Jones, who was traveling west on SR 20 around 3:40 p.m., told Calhoun County Deputy John Scheetz she didnt know what happened. A witness was able to give a description of the unusual accident and told the deputy the vehicle was on SR 20 when it suddenly swerved to the left and went over the curb on the south side of the road. The Jeep went through a metal awning at the former pawn shop next door to West End Liquors and slammed into a metal beam. The impact with the beam caused the rear of the Jeep to go up in the air and rotate, landing on a Nissan Altima parked at the far end of the liquor store. The right side of the Jeep kind of sideswiped the car, according to the deputy. The passengers side of the Jeep hit the drivers side of the car. The car was registered to Carlos Hall, whose wife works at the West End Liquors. The Jeep is registered to Joe Williams of Blountstown. Jones declined medical treatment at the scene.But not without leaving a little damage behindJeep makes new parking space at liquor store BETH EUBANKS PHOTOS Two more le intent in local racesAltha Police James Jimmy Baggett has thrown his hat in the ring for the Calhoun County Sheriffs race.
