Do voters know the candidates and the issues? At the city and county level, the answer is probably yes. At the state and federal level, I think not so much. Thomas Jefferson allegedly said, An informed citizenry is the only true repository of the public will. Jeffer son would spin in his grave if he were aware of the level of public ignorance concerning issues that are of impor tance to all of us. Steve Chapman, a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, recently wrote a column titled, A government by the ignorant, for the ignorant. In the piece, Chapman makes the point that Americans dont know much about much when it comes to political issues and how the U.S. government operates. For example, Chapman stated that people call for smaller government by reducing foreign aid. What the public does not understand is that the money spent on foreign aid is less than one percent of the federal budget. Go ahead, cancel foreign aid, but the amount of money is so small compared to the total federal budget that its akin to swatting a gnat. Our form of government requires that voters give some guidance to those in government controlling the purse strings as to what is important to the common good of all Americans. Voters are also responsible for electing people who can cope with complicated issues that affect all Americans. But when voters dont know that there are three branches of the federal government and what their functions are then the value of voter input to government is questionable. About 50 percent of voters are solidly in the right and left wing camps. Their political objectives and their votes are predictable. Independents or swing voters decide elections. Millions of dollars are spent to voting block that requires political smarts. of money on politics, they would spin in their graves along with Jefferson. Their idea of representative government has long ago disappeared in the onslaught of cash to buy the government that modern day robber barons want. Thanks to the Supreme Court decision Citizens United, a few rich people will decide the 2012 national elections. However, state and local elections are also to avoid environmental regulations spend whatever it takes to get their guy elected to local government or state legislatures who then carries water for the cor poration. The effect of big money on elec tions was evident in the recent elec tion to recall the Wisconsin governor. The results of this election gave new meaning to buying an election. The opposing Democrat was woefully outspent with money primarily from outof-state Political Action Committees, who dont answer to anyone. The crux of the issue was the Wisconsin Republican governors assault on labor unions. There has been a concerted and coor dinated effort from newly elected Republican gover nors and legislators to demonize unions, particularly unions representing state and federal workers. This is where the bags of unaccounted cash do so messages, and the sad part is that the ill-informed and politically ignorant voters fall for the anti-union propaganda. I often wonder if these people ever think for themselves. Unions have been part of the American political landscape for decades. Without unions, there would be no child labor laws, no workplace safety rules, and workers would still be making a dollar an hour. My mother went to work in a Navy laundry in the to retire 23 years later at age 63, she was making $1.65 an hour. She would have received a decent wage had there been a union representing her. I dont have any sympathy for the anti-union crowd. Voters have been convinced that state and federal workers are leeches on society. Republican gover nors, Florida Governor Rick Scott for example, are unemployment problem. You cant convince the illthe economic recession worse because unemployed public workers decrease demand for goods and ser vices. Why? Its simple. Workers without jobs have no money to spend.The economic solution to recessions is government spending. Its that stimulus thing which voters think is some kind of Democratic scourge. It has been economically proven a dozen times over that the only solution to end a recession is for the government in the short term to pump money into the market place via infrastructure projects. Republicans have embraced Austrian F. A. Hyacks belief that austerity measures will end the recession, a theory that is pure bunk.Great Britain is trying the austere cut government spending and the result is a double-dip recession for them, a fact that Republicans fail to comprehend.

JUNE 20, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift FROM WATERGATE TO WITCH HUNTSWASHINGTON Weve just marked the fortieth anniversary of the Watergate break-in and the scandal that brought down a president. Republicans and Democrats voted together unanimously in the Senate to create the Select committee that investigated President Nixon. 40 is a big difference between criminal acts in the abuse of power and the criminalizing of politics in divided government. One is called justice; the other is a witch hunt. Attorney General Eric Holder is embroiled in a Republican witch hunt and he is resisting pressure to appoint a special counsel to investigate national security leaks. Holder instead named two U.S. attorneys with appointed by President George W. Bush; the other is an Obama appointee. That should be enough to silence critics, but then, in an election year, there is no satisfying the other side. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., apparently still suffering from his loss in is accusing the White House of deliberately leaking sensitive national-security information to burnish President Obamas reputation and make him look tough. Obama called such charges offensive and pointed to his administrations record of cracking down hard on those who leak. First of all, its not necessarily illegal to leak classileak damaged national security and also that the leaker intended harm. What seems to have the Republicans most upset is the White Houses sharing of details about the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden, together with the revelation that the president personally signs off on a kill list of terrorist targets. The White House cooperated with a documentary hunt down bin Laden, which will be aired sometime before the election. Whether this gives away details that forewarn Americas enemies, or lets those who wish us harm understand how determined we are to defend our shores is a matter of interpretation. The same can be said of the reports that Obama takes a personal hand in determining which individuals are heightened sense of moral responsibility on the part of the president; others may view it as micro-managing a battle zone that should be left up to the commanders on the ground and in the Pentagon. Either way, these are not subjects for leak investiga tions and its pure politics to make Holder the scapegoat at the same time Republicans in the House are threatening to hold him in contempt of Congress on an entirely different subject. Chalk it up to election-year politics and the GOPs effort to ramp up their attack on Holder for an operation dubbed Fast and Furious. Begun under Bush, Fast and Furious was an attempt to funnel weapons Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives, which is part of the Justice Department, lost track of more than a thousand weapons and two of those weapons were implicated in the killing of a U.S. border agent. Fast and Furious is a staple of conservative outrage and covered extensively on conservative cable televi sion and radio. Accusations of a cover-up by Holder features language straight out of the Watergate era with Holder allegedly stonewalling and incensed Republicans demanding what did Holder know and when did he know it. The mainstream media has grudgingly covwith the leak investigation and has fueled calls from Republicans for Holders resignation, it will likely get more attention. Republicans dont like Holders progressive agenda and his legal challenges to state immigration laws and to Floridas voter purge. Theyre trying to sideline him with a made-up controversy that will take all his time and energy.

Think of it as a mustard green and you will be well on your way to including it in steak mari nades or meat sandwiches (great with roast beef!) or wrapped around a grilled sausage.

R., Chicago, ILOddly enough, cream of tartar, or tartaric acid, is what is left over after grape juice has been fermented into wine. The crystalline acid that is deposited on the inside of huge wine casks gets turned into cream of tartar, also known as potassium bitartrate. You can buy it in small jars in the spices section of your local grocery store. Its used in candy making, to make frostings smoother, to make egg whites easier to beat into a froth for meringues or chiffons, and, more rarely, as a leaven ing agent in baking. While youll sometimes see cream of tartar plus baking soda (and sometimes salt) listed as a substitute for baking a substitute for cream of tartar.

From the Southern Everglades to the farm country of the panhandle, we love our Sunshine State! To extend our learning we visited the Tallahassee Junior Museum on Thursday, June 14. On the trail we watched bald eagles in their nesting ground and alliga tors sunning on the warm bank. To our delight Florida black bears were playfully cooling in a trough of water and our school mascot, the panther, was excitedly playing ball. To end our week, Ryan Faircloth visited our school to teach us the art of beekeeping. He taught us about the queen bee and her workers and about the life cycle of bees. Next he revealed to us the art of making honey. We enjoyed tasting the honey made from our own area of Telogia Creek. Ryan ordered candy made from honey especially for us.

Heat emergencies can be serious and even life threatening. People suffer heat-related illness when the bodys temperature control system is overloaded. The body normally cools itself by sweating. But under some conditions, sweating just isnt enough. In such cases, a persons body temperature rises rapidly. Very high body temperatures may damage the brain or other vital organs. Several factors affect the bodys ability to cool itself during extremely hot weather. When the humidity is high, sweat will not evaporate as quickly, preventing the body from releasing heat quickly. Heat Stroke is the most dangerous heat related emergency and we need to be able to recognize the symptoms. The signals of heatstroke include hot, red skin which can be dry, or moist from exercise; rapid, weak pulse; rapid, shallow breathing, vomiting and changes in consciousness. A person experiencing heatstroke can have a very high body tempera turesometimes as high as 106F (41 C). What to do for heat stroke. Heatstroke is a life-threatening situation. If you suspect someone is suffering from heatstroke, call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number immediately and do the following: 1. Move the person to a cool place. 2. Loosen tight clothing. 3. Remove perspiration-soaked clothing. 4. Apply cool, wet cloths to the skin. 5. Fan the person. 6. If conscious, give small amounts of cool water to drink. 7. Place the person on his or her side. 8. Continue to cool the person by using ice or cold packs on the wrists, ankles, groin and neck and in the armpits. 9. Continue to check breathing and circulation. Do not give liquids that contain alcohol or caffeine because they can cause further dehydration, making conditions worse. Ensure 9-1-1 or the local emergency number is called if the person refuses water, vomits or starts to lose consciousness. Enjoy the outdoors but be safe doing it.

MARIANNAThe Chipola College Automotive Technology program project has been selected to receive an Exemplary Practice Award from the Association of Florida Colleges Occupational and Workforce Education Commission. The project, Time to Reinvent the Wheel, was presented by John Gardner, Chipola Automotive instructor; Chase Vlieg, Automotive teaching assistant and Dr. Jason Hurst, Chipola vice-president of Baccalaureate and Occupational Education. The Chipola group will present the project again at the AFC Fall Convention in October. Dr. Hurst said, We are extremely pleased to win the Exemplary Practice Award. I have personally been involved with automotive programs in a couple of different states and Chipolas Auto Tech Program is one of the best in the country. Chipolas automotive technology program is centered on todays students. Instructor John Gardner says, Todays technologically savvy students grew up with computers, cell phones and video games. If we wanted a successful program in todays I want it now, microwave society, our program had to evolve as well. In order to do so, we had to reinvent the wheel. Gardner said outdated training videos with slow animation were not holding the students attention. He formed a partnership with the entertainment industry to create a new, fast-paced Infotainment training system. Infobase Learning and Films Media Group agreed to experts Brenton Productions to produce an ASE Automotive Training Video Series. Brenton produces several TV shows, including Two Guys Garage, Hi Rev Tuners, Shadetree Mechanic, Crank & Chrome and Wounded Warrior series. The Chipola team created series written by, and starring, two practicing automotive technology instructors with over 22 years of combined experience. Each segment tion, Theory of Operation, Professionalism Dialogue, Motivational Tips, ASE Preparation and ASE Style 10 minutes each, and designed for use on internet-based programs or as stand-alone DVDs. Gardner says the series was strategically scripted to meet the needs of todays automotive students, instructors and technicians. The programs also were designed to meet the needs of all three types of learners: visual, audio and kinesthetic. All content includes graphics, close-ups of components and parts-labeling, ASE questions with highlighted answers, all with live demonstra tions with tools and equipment to involve the audience in the learning process. Dr. Hurst said, Our students today are born into a technologically-advanced world and we as educators must change the way we do business. This new fastpaced infotainment training system keeps our students interest and helps prepare them for the workforce. Any institution can implement the DVDs into their current program. Gardner says the impact of the DVD series has been nationwide. Automotive publishers Infobase Learning, Films on Demand, GoodheartWilcox, Delmar, Cengage Learning and Pearson are currently developing their automotive curricula with this system. The Chipola Automotive program also was selected as a runner-up for a 2012 Bellwether Award in the Workforce Development division. The program was a Bellwether runner-up in 2006 and won Floridas Best Business and Education partnership in 2004. Chipola utilizes an industry-based curriculum in partnership with local dealerships, shops, and an advisory committee to provide students with the competitive edge in the ever-changing, high-tech training environment. The program has excellent job placement rates and students earn valuable industry credentials including For information about Chipolas Automotive Technology program, visit www.chipola.eduChipola Automotive Tech Team wins exemplary practice award Todays technologically savvy students grew up with computers, cell phones and video games.

Page 22 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JUNE 20, 2012 Who does not like to be pampered? Most people enjoy being pampered one way or another. Seventeen girls were treated to some pampering last week by attending the 4-H Spa Day Camp held at Veterans Memorial Civic Center. The girls were taught that when you take a moment to be good to yourself, you feel healthier and happier. The camp began with Beauty Control Consultant Kelli Flourney sharing information about the importance of taking care of your skin. She also showed the group how to make spa treatments from basic items in the kitchen. After applying a mask, par ticipants relaxed in the fantasy spa, and learned how to re-energize their body and spirit. We learned age has nothing to do with stress, even young people need to learn to de-stress. Later in the day, Angie Hill and Jamie Hudson from Merle Norman Salon taught hair care. Using two of the girls in attendance, they demonstrated how to wash, condition, dry and style hair. They also emphasized the importance of cleaning, conditioning and prevent ing damage to hair. The second day of camp, Rebecca Foran and Billy Rae Larkins from Myrlenes Beauty Shop taught the participants how to care for their feet, toenails, hands were treated to a mini-pedicure and manicure while relaxing in the fantasy spa. Monica Brinkley, Extension Agent, emphasized having a positive body image helps you feel proud of your body and promotes a realistic view of and expectation of yourself. People with positive body images may occasionally feel self-conscious, which is normal, but do strive to celebrate and appreci ate their bodies. She urged the group to have a plan of action for those times when they may feel low. Turn your focus on helping and not hurting yourself, she said. What can you do for yourself that would be positive? Using a variety of craft supplies, she helped the youth learn to use their creativity when they need something positive to do. She also them happy. Whether it is taking a walk, playing sports, doing crafts, know what makes you feel good about yourself, she told them. These activities will create a new, positive, encouraging perception of you. If you already have a positive body habits you already have, she said.

While the kids are exuberantly shouting, Schools out! many parents may be quietly worrying just how theyre going to feed their kids all summer long. I want to assure those moms, dads and caregivers that USDA has a program that can help. All it takes is a toll free phone call Program (SFSP) site where children in low-income areas can get a free meal dur ing the summer months when schools are closed. The National Hunger Hotline (1 (866) 3-HUNGRY or 1 (866) 348-6479) can give you locations of Summer Food Service Program sites open in your local area. Just provide your zip code and the Hotline operator will tell you if there is a site near where you live. This information is also available to Spanish speakers, 1 (877) 8-HAMBRE. Summer meals are free for children 18 and under at open sites. In addition to a healthy meal, the program offers enjoyable learning activities held in a safe place where kids can play with friends and make new ones. Summer meal sites are located at libraries, schools, family centers, youth drop-in centers, park and recreation centers, faith-based organizations, day camps and food banks and many other locations where children come together during the summer months. Sites offer activities such as arts and crafts, drama, sports, computer training, music and reading that keep kids interested and coming back day after day. Ive personally visited many sites and know that the kids have a great time and enjoy good meals. We need to spread the word so that more families, parents and children a site in their community. I encourage parents and sponsoring organizations to work with their schools to send Summer outreach materials home with students before the end of school. Our Website, www.summerfood.usda.gov includes templates for creating these materials. SFSP is vitally important to the mil lions of kids who eat school lunch and school breakfast during the school year but have no nutritious alterative in the summer. Only 3 million of the 22 mil lion students who receive free or reduced price meals in the National School Lunch Program participate in a summer feeding program either through SFSP or through their school. Summertime should not be a hungry Healthy food gives kids energy so they can enjoy all the summertime fun, but also maintains their nutrition so they feel well and do well once theyre back in school. At USDA, were committed to ensur ing that all students have access to food thats in while school is out. We are here to help parents and communities make that a reality this summer.USDA joins communities to feed children during summer time meal gapfrom Kevin Concannon, DETROIT Chipola College graduate Adriane Guettler of Chipley, shown at right, was awarded $20,000 from the Buick Achievers Scholarship Program.

Calabro, President and CEO of Florida TaxWatch, explained: As an integral part of our mission to educate taxpayers and citizens, Florida TaxWatch has been conducting analyses of the likely im pacts of proposed Constitutional Amendments for more than three decades, and I know that this independent analysis will help Floridians judge the potential Amendment 4 would take effect on January 1, 2013, and proposes: Florida home buyers, equal to 50 percent of the Just Value of a property up to the median Just Value of a homestead property in that county, which phases out over 5 years by reducing by 20 per cent each year; non-homestead maximum annual Assessed Value increase cap from the current 10 percent (on non-school levies) to a new level of 5 percent and an extension of non-homestead Assessed Value caps through the 2022 tax year (which also does not apply to school levies) and; ity to eliminate the Save Our Using the best available data and an advanced econometric analysis, Florida TaxWatch estimates that the passage of Amendment 4 would result in the creation of 19,483 private, nonfarm jobs over the 10-year period of the analysis (2013-2022), that Florida GDP would increase by approximately $1.1 billion, and personal income would increase by more than $5.3 billion. Jerry D. Parrish, Ph.D., Flor ida TaxWatch Chief Economist, Executive Director of the Center for Competitive Florida, and author of the study, explained that, The increased economic activity estimated by the dynamic econometric model used in this analysis is the result of the savings from Amendment 4 being distributed throughout the economy. From an economists surprising because the proposed Amendment 4 would reduce uncertainty for both personal and business investment, and when individuals and businesses can better estimate their future costs, including property taxes, they are more likely to invest. Basically, reducing the uncertainty of potentially large property tax increases will increase investment in both non-homestead residential and commercial property in Florida, and the econometric model bears The Florida TaxWatch analysis also estimates that between 319,861 and 383,810 additional home sales would occur due to the effects of Amendment 4 during the 10-year period following its passage and implementation. According to the report, the additional home sales attributable to Amendment 4, over and above those estimated to have occurred in the absence of Amendment 4, are due to the effect of the additional homestead exemption, the additional income for Floridians, and the population growth predicted by this analysis. Additionally, there are effects from both the non-homestead exemption on additional residential sales and the number of homes that are purchased by persons who have sold their homes and moved up One important effect of Amendment 4 that does not directly affect the estimates in the economic analysis but is worth noting is the effect of the non-homestead property tax cap reduction (from 10 percent to 5 percent) in reducing uncertainty. Property tax caps have two main economic effects. First, they reduce uncertainty for personal and business investment, and when businesses can better estimate their costs, including property taxes, they are more likely to invest, so reducing the uncertainty of potentially large property tax increases will increase investment in both non-homestead residential and commercial property in Florida. However, property tax caps can also reward early investors and give them an advantage over later investors, which could affect investment timing decisions, by potentially moving them to earlier periods, at the expense of future investments.Florida TaxWatch is a statewide, non-profit, non-partisan research institute that over its 32-year history has become widely recognized as the watchdog of citizens hard-earned tax dollars.
