The alleged victim told deputies he was attacked by Denise T. Walden when they returned to their camper trailer on Turkey Pen Pond Road April 18 after a night out at a bar in Panama City. He said she had consumed several glasses of wine and several beers. He met deputies at a nearby store after going there to call for help. He said as they entered their trailer, Walden turned around and pushed him out the door. He said after he sat on a chair outside, she tried to choke him with a cell phone cord and told him, I hope you die. After he managed to get away from her, he said she threw a bottle of wine at him and threatened to call someone to beat him up. The man told deputies he hid Waldens cell phone on the rear bumper of the travel trailer before going back inside. As he walked into the bedroom, he said she grabbed a loaded shotgun. He said he got the gun away from her, ejected three shells and left the trailer. Two Calhoun County deputies were joined at the scene by deputies as they approached the travel trailer with their guns drawn. Deputy Jody Hoagland looked in a window and saw Walden asleep on the bed. After several loud verbal commands, she woke up and came outside with her hands up. She was handcuffed and taken into custody. Before being driven to the Calhoun County Jail, the ambulance crew examined her and found she did not require medical care but she was taken to the hospital for a medical clearance. A deputy wrote in his report that the man had obvious injuries, including a red line around his neck and red marks on his abdomen. When he later spoke with Walden, the deputy noted she had a small abrasion to her right temple and complained that her head hurt. A 12 gauge shotgun was found under the bed. Deputies also found other evidence at the scene matching the complainants account of events, including a broken wine glass, a trail of red wine that had been splashed against the side of the camper and a grey phone cord near a chair outside. Walden later told an investigator that she and the complainant had ar gued and he hit her in the head several times. She admitted to wrapping the phone cord around his neck but said she was not going to kill him. She said she was angry that he had hidden her cell phone and grabbed the shotgun but said she never pointed it at him. She said as soon as she grabbed the gun, she threw it out the door. She is being held on a $10,000 bond.Woman charged with domestic battery by strangulation & aggravated assault Denise T.

The Republican Party has their weird uncle Mitt Romney, but the problem is that Republicans want to foist their Uncle Mitt off on the rest of America, as the President, no less. Yikes! Say its not so, but it is. The Republican primaries have given new meaning to the term clowns. But its not all the fault of the Republican candidates. Most of the candi dates clownish behavior comes from their efforts to say and do whatever it takes to placate the crazies that have hijacked the Republican Party. Mitch Daniels, the Governor of Indiana, would be an excellent Republican candidate for President, but he declined to run. Why? Only Daniels knows, but a good guess is that he didnt want to suck up to the right-wing extremist. Jon Huntsman, former Governor of Utah, actually ran in the Republican primaries but received almost zero support from Republican voters. My guess is that Huntsman wasnt considered crazy enough to make the Tea Party cut. My view is that Huntsman or Daniels would make good presidents, but Im not a rightwing extremist. Well, here we are. Unless there is a lightning strike in the Republican Party that renders most of the extremist blind, deaf and dumb, Uncle Mitt is going to be the Republican candidate that runs against President Obama for the presidency. Romney has given pandering for the vote new mean ing. This man has been on all four sides plus top and bottom of every issue. He will say whatever the audience wants to hear. Romney is one of those blowing in the wind people. He bends with the political winds no matter which way they blow, left or right. Im a Southerner. Southerners have manners. Romney does not. He attended an outdoor meeting with handpicked Republican participants, which would have provided Romney with the opportunity to bond with the common man. Someone brought cookies to the meeting. But unlike a Southerner who knows never to criticize the hosts food, Romney dissed the cookies, comparing them to something from a 7-Eleven convenience store. As the common man knows, particularly a Southerner, there is no such thing as a bad cookie. Of all the foods ney has no concept of how ordinary people live and work. Why should he? Hes rich, and most likely, his housekeeper buys the groceries. Guess Romney has to eat designer cookies, since he was repulsed by the sight of an ordinary cookie baked by an ordinary bakery in an ordinary town. No matter how hard he tries, Romney just cant lower himself from the rich elite society in which he lives to the street life that the rest of us live. Its pathetic to watch Romney pander and grovel for the vote of the common man. Republicans deny that they are waging a war on women at the federal and state level, but the hundreds of Republican anti-abortion and anti-contraception bills prove differently. Why any woman would vote for a Republican when they are making every effort to control and manipulate a womans right to basic healthcare is a mystery to me. Planned Parenthood agencies are the favorite target of the Republicans. Planned Parenthood clinics are the only source of healthcare for many women, particular ly the poor, but Republicans see Planned Parenthood as abortion clinics, which they would defund. What Republicans dont understand in their zeal to punish every sinner is that when they deprive women of basic healthcare, they are signing death warrants for many of these women. When a doctor says, You have cancer, then that woman is most likely a dead woman without access to medical services at Planned Parenthood or Medicaid. A man that I know was recently diagnosed with cancer. He explained the initial cost of treatment. The 160 chemo pills were $4,700 but reduced to $3,800 by his insurance company. The pharmacist suggest that he call the drug company which has a discount plan which reduced the cost of the pills to $770, which he paid. He said his daily radiation treatments, which last about three minutes, cost $1,500. This man is fortunate to have insurance; otherwise, he would be a dead man walking. But, Mitt the panderer promises to completely shut down Planned Parenthood should he be elected president. Romney supports the Ryan budget, which would gut Americas already tattered social safety net. The dramatic change to America that Republicans are pursuing and are proposing should Romney become president with a Republican House and Senate are draconian. Medicare would become a voucher program. You get a voucher to buy insurance from a private company. Is it possible that this is just a scam that will provide more money to the insurance industry? Of course it is. The insurance industry buys politicians by the dozens. In November, people have a choice as to the future of America. What will it be?The Republican Partys weird uncleMitt Romney has already begun the process of choosing a running mate.

APRIL 25, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift WASHINGTON Tax day is over for most Americans, but not for Mitt Romney, whose tax returns are so complicated that he needed an extension. A campaign advisor explained that Romney had to wait for the necessary forms from various business and Given the many millions of dollars he pulls in each year, its not surprising that his taxes are complicated. But what about the challenges the rest of us face? You dont have to make mega-bucks to conclude that the U.S. tax code is complex, convoluted and incomprehensible. Average taxpayers with income under $100,000 often qualify for a maze of potential tax credits and deductions if they only understood how to decipher the relevant IRS regulations. There are educational credits and deductions for college tuition; homeowners relief, childcare credits and best of all, the Earned Income credit. President Reagan hailed it as the best anti-poverty, the best pro-family, the best job creation measure to come out of Congress. It is designed to make work pay by subsidizing taxpayers who put in full, 40-hour weeks, but who do not earn enough to make work worthwhile without a helping hand from the federal government. Many more people could qualify for this assistance if they knew it was available. The IRS is an institution that still strikes fear in people, although it has undergone a welcome makeover in recent years and is much more user friendly. The current IRS commissioner was recently on NPR sharing the music he listens to when hes working out as way of showing the warm and fuzzy side to the dreaded agency. There is a better way. We have a suggestion for the IRS. How about hiring some people who know how to write plain English, writers who could clear away some of that dense language in the tax code. Everybody talks about tax reform and that will be a big debate throughout this election year, but we are not even talking about fairness, or getting rid of Big Oil loopholes. We are just advocating for some understandable english so people know exactly what tax credits and deductions can and cannot take. This is not rocket science, but you would be for given for thinking rocket scientists wrote the tax code because it is incomprehensible to the average person. The same can be said for most military manuals, appliance manuals and for just about every business document that we encounter in our daily lives. The newly created Consumer Federal Protection Bureau has gotten off to a good start by taking on credit card contracts and home mortgages with an eye to Most people dont even read their credit card statement contract and are then surprised when credit rates jump up, or they are unfairly penalized for some infraction. Home mortgages require a closer look, but again, most people have little idea of what exactly they are signing. A complete overhaul of the tax system wont happen until after the election and even then, its likely a multi-year project. In the meantime, the Consumer Federal Protection agency would win a lot of friends that literally affects every American the language in the tax code. The IRS needs writers.The IRS needs writers

Chew a few sprigs of parsley, while youre at it, to get rid of that garlic or onion breath. Adding brewers yeast to your diet, or to that of your pet, is another common preventative; take about 2 tablespoons per day. Mixing brewers yeast with applesauce or yogurt is an easy way to ingest it; for pets, mix it into their wet food. Rubbing apple-cider vinegar onto exposed skin is helpful in re ducing bug bites, but youll have to reapply it frequently. The same treatment is also good for easing the itch of bug bites. I want to know if it is possible to grow lettuce indoors? T. W., Rockford, Ill.Yes, just use really good, moist potting soil, quarters full. Sprinkle a pinch of seeds on the soil and cover lightly with soil. Close the top of the bag, leaving 1-inch open. Set the bag in a sunny window and when green shoots appear, open the bag more. Keep it in the sun and keep the soil moist with watering. The best temperature for your growing lettuce is between 65 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. When the shoots start getting large, start cutting the leaves to eat.Keep your nose to the grindstone is an old adage, and there must be a reason for it, but why would anyone want to do that?P. O., Sacramento, Calif.Sounds gruesome, doesnt it? The reference is to the sense of smell, however, rather than to any sort of applied friction to the nose itself. A good miller could detect the smell of granite if the runner stone and bed stone of the gristmill were too close together during grinding. Millers were constantly adjusting the gap between the two huge, wheel-shaped stones, to best accommodate the size of kernels of the particular batch of corn being milled. The phrase, of course, has come to indicate a steady and hard worker, one who keeps up a good pace and is mindful of his work. Its often applied to students as they push to complete their studies over the course of a semester. Its more voluntary than being led by the nose and not as grim as paying through the nose. Someone who is keeping their nose to the grindstone is probably not keeping good hours (going to bed early), but they are apt to be keeping body and soul together (maintaining life).

After it sank, the ship lay in the St. Johns River until 1984, when it was rediscovered and partially excavated by Dr. Keith Holland and the St. Johns Archaeological Expeditions, Inc., along with archaeolo gists from East Carolina University. The ships contents, encased by the rivers muddy bottom, provide a time capsule of this period and offer a glimpse into previously undocumented aspects of the war and its effects on northeastern Florida. Additional components of the exhibit include a video about the Maple Leaf and recovered artifacts from the vessel. The objects are on loan from the Department of States Division of Historical Resources. Additional artifacts include a rare naval sword the CSS Florida, which is on loan from the Smithsonian Institution.

Yucet Batista, 29, was arrested following a joint investigation by the Department of Financial Services Division of Insurance Fraud and the Broward Sheriffs Office. The investigation determined that Batista created a shell company, Y&L Construction Services, Inc. and used money service businesses to carry out the scheme. She was ar rested on multiple felony charges and was booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail. I am proud of the work of my Fraud Division Atwater said.

In addition, CFO Atwater convened a working group in August 2011 to review the practices of certain bad actors in the check cashing services industry who were aiding in a complex workers compensation premium fraud scheme. The new law is based on recommendations from a work group convened in August 2011 by CFO Atwater to review the practices of certain bad actors in the check cashing services industry that aid in workers compensation premium fraud. The work group released its report in November. tectives to work a task force with the Department of Al Lamberti said. Fraud impacts and undermines honest businesses and the criminals who perpetrate it need to be pursued and prosecuted. I look forward After Batista set up her shell company, she told her workers compensation insurance company, Ascendant Commercial Insurance, Inc., that she had been in the construction business for 10 years and that Batista had never been in the construction industry, but rather she created the company and obtained the workers compensation insurance policy for the pur of uninsured subcontractors for a fee. In her tax return last year, Batista reported $14.7 million in payroll. Ascendant determined, as a result of her under reporting her payroll, she underpaid premiums by $2.1 million.

Everyone celebrated becoming an A school with the help of the leadership team and their sponsor Samantha Taylor. Students gathered together to play games and compete in contests. S.W.A.T set up their booth to spread the word about hor rible harmful tobacco. SGA organized and planned all the A day activities and received much praise. Students enjoyed playing on blow up obstacle courses, and competed in playful competitive competitions that consisted of rock wall climbing, blow up boxing, getting tangled up in blow up twister and blow up jousting. There were also extra booths such as fun day marriages, ring tosses, dart throwing and plenty of refreshments. Blountstown didnt get to be an A school by playing games though. It took hard work and dedication from all the students as well as the wonderful staff here at Blountstown High School. Dr. Debbie Williams says, becoming an A school relies upon all different aspects of the academic and extra curricular activities. For example, graduation rate, scores on state tests and participation in dual enrollment and honors classes. Dr. Williams said that, Watching SGA organize fun day was similar to observing a family learning how to live in a new house. Because orchestrating Fun Day had everything to do with the environment of the new campus.A CELEBRA TION & FCA T FUN DA Y HELDWednesday, April 25, Cheer tryout practice 3:00 P.M., Algebra Study Sessions 3 p.m.. to 4 p.m., FCA Huddle 7:30 A.M., Thursday, April 26 Athletic Physicals, Guys and Dolls 9 a.m., 12 p.m., 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 27 Guys and Dolls for BHS Students 9 a.m.., 6:30 p.m., State FFA Ag Com Competition in Gainesville Friday, April 28 FBLA State Leadership Conference Sunday, April 29 FBLA State Leadership Conference Monday, April 30 Geometry Study Session 3:00 4:00 p.m., FFA Calendar of EventsFor the next three weeks, Blountstown High School students will be participating in state Course will be on Tuesday, May 1; this exam will count as 30% of the will be on Tuesday, May 8; this exam will count as 30% of the students Course will be on Tuesday, May 15; students must pass the Algebra 1 order to be awarded credit for Algebra 1.

Page 18 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL APRIL 25, 2012I love roses, I always have. After many years of growing roses, I found myself becoming, dare I say it, a bit of a rose snob. If it wasnt a hybrid tea, I didnt want anything to do with it. But as many Southerners know, the hybrid teas do have to be pampered and constantly monitored and treated for fungal diseases. A couple of years ago, I decided to add some Knock Out roses to my landscape. I was taking a hesitant turn away from the long stems of the hybrid teas to a common shrub rose. I am very glad that I did. This year, the shrub roses are covered with dozens of beauti ful blooms. Massed together, they are breathtaking and grab the attention of neighbors. Landscape shrub roses will not make you great cut cally bloom non-stop during the growing season, from March to November in Northwest Florida. Also, they are much less prone to blackspot disease than the traditional The Knock Out family of roses was started by rose breeder Bill Radler when he crossed seedlings of Carefree Beauty with Razzle Dazzle to create the original Knock Out rose. The family now includes varieties that range from blush to vibrant red and even yellow. In general, Knock Out roses are drought tolerant, self cleaning, and resistant to black spot and powdery mildew. Since they require little maintenance, they are terested in the upkeep required to grow hybrid tea roses. The only drawback of Knock Out roses is that they dont have a strong fragrance. According to the Conrad Pyle website, the only true fragrant Knock Out is the yellow Sunny cultivar. Like all roses, Knock Out roses need to be planted where they will receive at least six to eight hours of sun each day. It also helps to have a site with good air movement and well-drained soil that falls between pH 6.0 and pH 6.5. Knock Out roses generally grow three sources say they can reach eight feet tall if not pruned, so be sure to space them appropriately. After planting, water them regularly until they get established. Apply a three-inch layer of mulch to help retain moisture in the soil, pulling the mulch back from the stem of the plants. Be sure to avoid overhead water ing which can increase the chance of fungal leaf spots. They prefer a deep watering every once in a while rather than frequent light waterings. Knock Out roses are referred to as self-cleaning meaning that the spent blooms will fall off on their own. of your deadheading practices. Deadheading is the removal of faded blooms. Most gardeners have found, however, that occasionally deadheading will create and maintain a tidier, more attractive plant.
