I have read the 974 pages of the May 1, 2010, as amended, U. S. House of Representatives Compilation of Patent Protection and Affordable Care Act. I have also read the 193 pages of the Supreme Court of the United States ruling on the Affordable Care Act. As I listen and watch politicians, political pundits, television talking heads in main stream and right-wing media, it is clear that they havent read these documents in their entirety. As always, they read the parts that support their point of view and then tell the story in their best interest. the details of issues like the Affordhave access to the Internet, Goggle Affordable Care Act, and you will get the original 2,000-page version of the law and the 974 amended version that I cite in this column. Do a key-word search for Internal Revenue Service and you get two references on pages 172 and 655, both of which are about administrative reporting procedures. The individual mandate which has Republicans and ill-informed voters jacked out of shape is covered on pages 164 to 170. This is Chapter 48-Maintenance of Minimum Essential Coverage. Section 5000ARequirement to Maintain Minimum Essential Coverage provides spehealthcare coverage. If a person is remotely associated with a healthcare program, they are considered to be medically insured. If not in a program or own a healthcare policy, then the exemptions to this law covers most every situationreligious organizations, too poor to purchase, non-citizens Republicans will tell you that the federal government will put people in the slammer who do not pay the penalty, assuming that they are one of the very few who arent exempted. Not true, just another Republican scare tactic. On page 170 of the document and page 151 of the text, under Special Rules (A) Waiver of Criminal by a taxpayer to timely pay any penalty imposed by this section, such taxpayer shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution or penalty with respect to such failure. (B) Limitations on Liens and to any property of a taxpayer by reason of any failure to pay the penalty imposed by this section, or (ii) Levy on any such property with respect to such failure. What this means is that there is no mandate to buy healthcare insurance because there is no enforcement mechanism. The law discusses a procedural penalty process, but the individual mandate cannot be enforced. The amount of misinformation, disinformation and outright lies from the Republicans is amazing. Governor Romney repeatedly says that people will lose their current insurance coveragethat is a lie. This law is so broad in its interpretations that if you have a healthcare plan written on the back of an envelope by your plumber, then the government will say, Atta boy. Affordable Healthcare Act is law of the land, the Congress should in a bipartisan way rework the law to remove objectionable issues and imwont happen. Republicans are in frenzy, biting themselves, frothing at the mouth and acting like morons about a law that is intended to provide healthcare to Americans. How can something as necessary as healthcare be considered so vile. Republicans need to have a look in the mirror and decide what kind of people they are. Currently, the federal government pays on average about 60% of state Medicaid cost. The Supreme Court ruled that the federal government cannot force states to expand their Medicaid programs, but states can voluntarily expand their Medicaid coverage, an option that has always been available to the states. Florida Governor Scott vows not to comply with the Affordable Healthcare Act, particularly in expanding Floridas Medicaid program and establishing healthcare exchanges at which Florida citizens can purchase healthcare insurance at, hopefully, reasonable cost. So, if you are a poor person who needs Medicaid services, but currently cant qualify, then you might ask Governor Scott why he refuses to expand Floridas Medicaid program to people like you. Governor Scott and 25 other Republican state governors say that expansion will cost the states millions. Not true. The federal government covers 100% of Medicaid exon the fourth year 90% of expansion cost. After that, the states assume slightly more cost per year. If you are one of the 1.95 million Floridians that expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act would cover, then forget it. Governor Scott says no dice. You are on your own. Live or die, but not on Floridas dime. Paying penalties under this act is a red herring. Here is why. We already collectively pay a penalty for medical care rendered to the uninsured at hospital emergency rooms. The cost to all of us paying for insurance was $43 billion in 2008. Paying for the uninsured adds about a $1,000 to our annual cost of healthcare insurance. So, providing healthcare for the uninsured and forcing those that can afford insurance to buy healthcare insurance saves billions per year. Ill say it again. What is so evil, so vile, so reprehensible about a plan to provide people with healthcare? Politicians talk about leadership, pound their chest, wrap themselves in the Flag, paste the Constitution and Declaration of Independence to their foreheads and declare themselves super patriots and defenders of democracy and freedom, but then do everything possible to deprive people of a necessity like healthcare. Charlatans, one and all.

Calhoun County Deputy Jody waiting for an ambulance to arrive. According to Hoaglands report, the bullet appeared to have entered the lower area of his chin and traveled up and to the left before exiting his jaw, according to Hoaglands report. Jackson Fire & Rescue members arrived and assisted the injured man, who afterwards was transported to to Bay Medical Center in Panama City. As of July 2, Pitts remains hospitalized and is expected to undergo reconstructive surgery. The days events began with a call for help at 7:02 a.m. from Pitts estranged wife. She told deputies that her husband who had been living with his mother for the past month barged in her front door, holding a chrome handgun. She her head down and felt something pressed against the back of her head. She said he threatened her, stating: Shut up. Ill blow your brains out. You got one over on me. Im going to get one over on you! He wanted her keys and her cell phone, she said, explaining that he was angry that she had changed her cell phone number two days earlier. He left before deputies arrived but later spoke to them after calling his wife from her cell phone. Hoagland took the phone and told Pitts he wanted to hear his side of the story. Pitts did not respond. After a 30-second pause, Pitts hung up. Pitts responded a few minutes later to a text message sent by Lt. Adam Terry, calling him to tell him he was out of here now. Terry said Pitts was very upset and crying. Terry continued to maintain contact with Pitts via text. Around 11 a.m., he learned that Pitts planned to shoot himself. After pinging the cell phone he was using, Pitts location was determined to be in the area of Land Store on CR 286 just inside Jackson County. A second location check indicated Pitts was south of Ocheesee Landing boat ramp on a dirt road. Deputies responded to the scene and found his car backed into the woods on the west side of the road. Pitts was sitting in the drivers seat. As they approached, Pitts sped off. Deputies then pursued him as he fled southbound on Ocheesee Landing Road and then northbound on CR 286, with speeds topping 100 mph. Pitts then headed to Boneyard Road, where he stopped for a short time as deputies from two counties more before coming to a roadblock, where he stopped and then turned the gun on himself. The charges pending against him include aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, burglary with a convicted felon, felony fleeing and eluding, habitual driving while license suspended or revoked and violation of state probation.STANDOFF continued from page 1 Apalachee Valley VFW Post 12010 hosts program & awards presentation Saturday WALK TO LLIBERTY

Y., Seymour, IDHavent you ever heard the warning, Beware of Greeks bearing strange gifts? No, were just kidding about that, but the custom is an ancient Greek one. The salt should be placed only in the right hand, never the left. No need to beware, though; it was a gesture of friendship, indicating the desire for the acquaintance to continue and grow stronger. Salt carries all sorts of luck charms. Throw a pinch over your left shoulder using your right hand to prevent bad luck (especially after sneezing), but dont glance after it or it wont work. Spilling salt unintentionally is considered a bad omen, as is knocking over a salt shaker or returning borrowed salt. For this reason, you should never lend salt, but give it away, instead. Similarly, never help another diner to salt, but let him reach for it. Never set the table with two salt shakers in front of any place setting. When you do set the table, though, put the salt shakThroughout history, salt has been such a significant element of life that it has been the subject of many stories, fables, and folktales and is commonly referenced in fairy tales.What can you tell me about quinoa? L. S., Fort Myers, FLQuinoa, pronounced keen-wa, is a highprotein grain common in South American diets and becoming more popular in North America. Native to the Andes Mountain region, quinoa was a staple of the Incas, along with corn and potatoes. Because it is very high in protein (over 16 percent) grain for vegetarians. Of the common grains, only noa stacks up as a complete protein, having all eight amino acids in good balance. In addition, its considerably higher in calcium than rice or corn, and somewhat higher in phosphorus and iron, as well. Apart from the nutritional analysis, quinoa is a very versatile grain. Quick to cook (about 20 minutes), it can be substituted for rice, couscous, or even pasta in many traditional recipes. It bulks up to about four times its dry volume, so soup thickener for any soup where you might generally add barley or rice. Like couscous, quinoa is a lighter grain, not glutinous or sticky like some cooked grains. In fact, its gluten-free and wheat-free, which appeals to those who allergies. It has a very mild taste and its easy to digest. It is ideal in making stuffed peppers or pilafs. Some quinoa fans cook it and serve it straight, or sweetened, for a breakfast cereal.Is there any way to name a child to ensure that theyll never have a Almanac.com FOR RECIPES, GARDENING TIPS, AND WEATHER FORECASTS, VISIT:The Old Farmers Almanac Julyscommence on July 3.

A plan for long-term conservation of the Florida black bear, whose population is estimated at more than 3,000 today, compared with as few as 300 in the 1970s, was approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The Florida bear population is thriving. That is the success story, but we still have a lot of education to do, FWC Commission Chairman Kathy Barco said. Everyone loves bears, but not everyone wants them in their backyard. When people call to say, Relocate this bear, we need to help that neighborhood learn the ways to coexist with the bear take care of your garbage, dog food and bird feeders. The Florida Black Bear Management Plan, avail able online at MyFWC. com/Bear, encourages public input into bear management decisions at the local level. When implemented, the plan will help the FWC the challenges facing both people and bears in different parts of the state. Bear populations in some areas are thriving, while populations in other places are still recovering. If we all work together to promote these protections, we can expand upon this great day today, said FWC Commissioner Ron Bergeron. Challenges addressed by the Black Bear Management Plan include: habitats and corridors on public and private lands that accommodate bears large home ranges of up to 60,000 acres and allow bears to roam safely. bear-proof cans for garbage and proper storage of birdseed and pet food, which can be irresistibly mouth watering treats for bears. and visitors about black bear behavior and conservation, and how to remain safe if a bear comes into your yard or if you encoungo to MyFWC.com/Bear. Seven bear management units (BMUs) will be created, with each unit containing a geographically distinct bear subpopulation and a local advisory group of stakeholders interested in issues such as creating Bear Smart communities. The states largest land mammal is a subspecies of the American black bear and had been listed as a state-threatened species since 1974. Successful conservation of the Florida by the FWCs 2011 Biological Status Review, which reported the bear to be no longer at high risk of extinction. While Commissioners today passed a rule to remove the black bear from the list of state-threatened species, they also adopted a separate, new rule stating it is still illegal to injure or kill a bear in this state, or to possess or sell bear parts. The public and stakeholder groups participated extensively in developing Floridas bear management plan: holders provided input into the original draft bear management plan released on Nov. 10, 2011. comments were received on the draft plan and revised draft plan, with a majority of suggestions used by the FWC to improve the plan. form letters were received from Floridians. were made available: from Nov. 10, 2011, through Jan.10, 2012, on the draft plan, during which time four public workshops also were held and from April 13 until June 1, 2012 on the revised draft plan. The Florida black bear is among the 62 wildlife species that soon will join the list of species, like the bald eagle, already under an FWC management plan. Floridas new threatened species conservation model requires that management plans be created for all species that have been state-listed and that plans Those management plans give citizens an active role in Floridas efforts to conserve its diverse wildlife for future generations. Page 16 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JULY 4, 2012Black bear plan gets approval from FWC Greetings Liberty County, As your 2012 democratic candidate for Sheriff, I would like to reach out to the citizens of Liberty County through this article and share a few of my thoughts and concerns about the upcoming election. As concerned citizens, I am sure that many of you have been following the embarrassing weekly articles about the Sheriffs Department. Just as most of you, indicator that dramatic changes must be made in the There are many hardworking men and women that employees should be judged by the actions or inactions of a few. There is always hope, but under the current administration I feel that it is safe for Liberty County to conclude that what you see, is what you get!, and I feel that this is unacceptable. As intelligent, hard working people, we all know about the administrative changes that need to be made, such as being good stewards of the peoples tax dollars, maintaining training requirements and the need to demonstrate professionalism within the department. That these characteristics are lacking is evident not enough. Some of the changes that have been suggested through another candidates political ads can be addressed quickly through establishing a positive mission for the department and drafting clear, fair and intelcan be completed easily enough, but it is the actions and leadership of the Sheriff throughout the full term of department can not be changed by the Sheriff acting solely as an administrator. However, what is required is a fresh start with a Sheriff that is motivated through a deep love for this county and its citizens. Becoming Sheriff is not something to be checked off on as an accomplishment at the end of a career. It is a deep seeded motivation to right what is wrong and serve tirelessly to protect this community. With your Sheriff that you can be proud of.

TO M MIDNIGHTThe bald eagle population is increasing in Florida, which continues to be one of the top spots in the lower 48 states for bald eagles to nest and raise their young. Based on its 2011 aerial survey, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) estimates there are 1,457 active bald eagle nests in Florida, nearly a nine percent increase since 2008, when the state implemented a bald eagle management plan. Long-term success with bald the species recovery from just 88 active nests in 1973. Today at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland, leaders from the FWC and Audubon Florida highlighted the bald eagles recovery and the ongoing challenge of conserving these large raptors. They said celebrating the bald eagles resurgence in Florida was a great way to kick off the nations 236th anniversary of declaring independence. Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery in Florida. The FWC and Audubon are working together to protect bald eagles in Florida, so these majestic raptors will continue to soar as a symbol of national pride and conservation success, said FWC Chairman Kenneth Wright. For 20 years, Audubon Florida has recruited citizen-scientists to monitor eagles and their nests through its EagleWatch program, active in more than 40 counties. By monitoring more than 20 percent of the states nesting pairs, in conserving the species. Audubon is proud to have played a role in the bald eagles amazing success story in Florida, said Eric Draper, executive director for Audubon Florida. Our dedicated staff and EagleWatch volunteers, along with our state agency partners, have helped to identify potential threats to these work is far from done. Together, we are leading the nation in the protection of this important and iconic species. Working with ranchers and other landowners to protect bald eagle habitat is another priority for Audubon, with its involvement going back 50 years to the start of the Cooperative Kissimmee Eagle Sanctuary Program. Floridas greatest concentrations of bald eagle nesting territories are clustered around coastal and freshwater areas such as the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes. In 2011, Osceola and Polk for highest number of documented bald eagle nests. Floridians and visitors are encouraged to get outdoors on July 4 and throughout the year to enjoy the states many parks and public lands Eagle Nest Locator at MyFWC.com/Eagle. Bald eagles almost disappeared from the lower 48 states by the mid-20th century, with an estimated 417 pairs in the United States in 1963. The use of the now-banned pesticide DDT was causing eggshells to weaken and break under the weight of adults incubating eggs. Today, a healthy and stable eagle population in Florida will depend on continued availability of appropriate nesting and foraging habitats, as well as protection from disturbance during the nesting season. While the bald eagle is no longer listed as an endangered or threatened species, it is federally protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and by state rule (F.A.C. 68A-16.002). It is illegal to feed, disturb, take or possess a bald eagle, its feathers, nest or eggs. The public can help conserve bald eagles in Florida by following state guidelines for activities near eagle nests and by reporting new eagle nest locations to BaldEagle@MyFWC. com. The goal of the FWC bald eagle management plan, developed with public input, is to maintain a stable or increasing bald eagle population throughout Florida. The FWC provides guidelines for avoiding disturbance to nesting eagles and a permitting framework for activities that cannot adhere to the guidelines. Audubons Center for Birds of Prey contributes to eagle conservation through its specialized clinical care and EagleWatch program. The Center recently celebrated the 450th rehabilitated bald eagle released back into the wild since 1979.For more on bald eagles, go to MyFWC.com/Eagle.

C. as the winners of Gulf Coast Electric Cooperatives Youth Tour competition. GCECs local competition is part of the national Rural Electric Youth Tour program that rural electric cooperatives across the nation participate in. Each year, the Cooperative sponsors the Youth Tour contest for eleventh-graders whose parents are members of GCEC. Contestants are interviewed by a panel of three judges from the electric cooperative industry and two winners are chosen to travel on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D. C. in June. While in Washington, the students toured the numerous museums; Arlington National Cemetery; the Iwo Jima Monument; the U. S. Capitol area; the Korean, Lincoln, Vietnam, FDR, Jefferson and World War II Memorials; Mt. Vernon and the National Cathedral. They also enjoyed the U. S. Marine Corps Sunset Parade; a boat cruise and dance on the Potomac River and ended their trip by seeing the musical Memphis at the Kennedy Center. A highlight of the trip was the National Youth Day rally, where they joined other eleventh graders from across the nation. We were proud to have Alexa and Blake represent Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative in Washington, said GCEC Manager of Marketing and Member Services, Kristin Evans. The Washington, D. C. Youth Tour Program has been in existence since 1958 when 34 students from Iowa and a handful of chaperones visited Washington for a week long study tour. By 1964, the program was catching on, and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association began to coordinate the efforts of the co-ops. Since then, thousands of young people have experienced this oncein-a-lifetime opportunity to visit our nations capitol and learn about our government. Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative is part of the Touchstone Energy national alliance of local, consumer-owned electric cooperatives providing high standards of service to customers large and small. GCEC serves approximately 20,200 meters in Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson, Walton and Washington counties and in the municipalities of Wewahitchka, Ebro, White City, Lynn Haven, Fountain and Southport.

JULY 4, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 21 byBY AnnNN HoOSForORD SSMithITH President of the Bristol Lions ClubBarefoot, the young boy kicked dust along the pathway to the big river near Stiff-n-Ugly. He was a quiet child, sometimes teased for being a spoiled baby in his family of six children. The familys roots ran as deep as the big cypress trees in the mossy river swamps nearby. But here in the pine-scented evergreen woods of Liberty County, a man was born with determination and commitment to help others. Lester Summers grew up trying to make life better for the community he loved, by Because of his deep loyalty to the vision and hearing needs of Liberty County, the Bristol Lions Club has honored him by donating a monetary gift to a local resident with vision needs and by sharing the story of his special life. Lester Summers was born in his familys Florida cracker-style home in Estiffanulga August 29, 1935. His father, Addison Lewis Summers, Sr. had rushed into town to fetch Dr. Burns to help with the delivery, but they both arrived too late. Lester had already emerged, full of his notable energy despite his small frame. He was the sixth and last child of Jessie Lee McDaniel Summers (and Addison, Sr.) and was named for his fathers brother. His older siblings were Iona Summers Eubanks, Elnita Summers, Addison, Jr., Joyce Summers Hosford and Gordon Summers. Life was tough for everyone after the Depression, but Lesters family never went hungry. Like so many Liberty County folks, the children helped their parents with a large garden and farm animals. In those days there were neither fans nor air conditioning and homegrown meals were prepared on a hot woodstove, even in summer. Hogs and deer were cured in the smokehouse and the family siblings learned how to handle an axe, wedge and machete at an early age. Their father always admonished them to never go swimming in the big river because the swift currents were notorious for sweeping people under to their lakes and creeks. His father had a second rule Never eat spinach because it was a Yankee green! Lester graduated from Liberty County High School and carried his familys spirit of hard work, teamwork and service into the Army during World War II. He served stateside and after the war, joined the Army Reserves. He returned to Bristol to work for Hudson and Edith Strickland at their IGA grocery and hardware store (now Stricklands Ace Hardware) where he became the go-to man because of his practical knowledge of hardware and dependable customer service. Eventually Lester decided to pursue a business education and he chose Bob Jones University, a school with strong Christian ties. After college, he returned to north Florida where he sold insurance for many years, spending a year in Pensacola, then returning home to Liberty County. In March 1965, he was elected Liberty County Tax Collector and served faithfully in this position for 32 years. Lesters family still remembers how he would wake up in the middle of the night to go help someone needing a car or truck tag for their work. He would carry his case someone couldnt make it to his learned to be frugal at an early age and dollar bill he ever earned! On April 1, 1966, Lester Summers became a new member of the Lions Club of Bristol and he served in a number of knew that many of the most important community services are accomplished by dedicated unpaid volunteers. Lester rarely missed a Lions Club meeting and Each year he could be found next to the concession stand at the Liberty County Homecoming football game, enthusiastically selling and counting shotgun drawing tickets to raise money for the Lions vision initiatives. At Lake Mystic Baptist Church, he served as a faithful member and deacon, always meeting people at the front door with his trademark smile and handshake. He also helped establish and was a member of the Liberty County Ambulance Service and Fire Department. His active volunteer work included being Past President of the American Cancer Society, a member of the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce, a Mason of Dixie Lodge No. 109 and a fundraiser for the LCHS Jr. ROTC. Linda Duggar Summers, after seeing her while singing at a church event. They had two children, Angela Summers Read and Walt Summers, both of Bristol. After many years of marriage he lost Linda to cancer. He then married Maxine P. Summers and they enjoyed 15 good years together traveling, hunting Maxine remembers how he knocked on her front door and stood there on the front stoop to ask her if she would marry him. She still has fond memories of how loving and fair he was to all their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He taught Maxine to deer hunt and shoot a gun after she was 60 years old with him. A highlight every August, Lester and worms. He was also an avid FSU Seminole fan. Lester Summers truly had a gift for helping others and he made a lasting impact on those he knew. He went to be with the Lord May 18, 2012.

Page 24 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JULY 4, 2012 TALLAHASSEE Secretary of State Ken Detzner has announced the creation of the Florida Panhandle Shipwreck Trail, a series of 12 shipwrecks located offshore of Pensacola, Destin, Panama City and Port St. Joe. The shipwreck trail was developed by the Florida Department of States Underwater Archaeology Team, in partnership with Panhandle waterfront communities, in an effort to stimulate tourism and educate residents and visitors about Floridas history. This new underwater trail represents our latest effort to showcase a portion of Floridas vast collection of shipwrecks, said Secretary Detzner. Each location along the Florida Panhandle Shipwreck Trail offers an adventurous opportunity for heritage, recreational and ecological tourism. The Florida Panhandle Shipwreck Trail is highlighted by an interactive website that features underwater videos of each shipwreck, the locations of local dive shops and the current marine weather forecast. To guide visitors participating dive operators. The passport contains information about each of the shipwrecks, a dive log to record each stop and a place to validate the visit with Many of the shipwrecks along the trail were sunk to and diving destinations in varying depths of water with countless varieties of sea life.

I have read the 974 pages of the May 1, 2010, as amended, U. S. House of Representatives Compilation of Patent Protection and Affordable Care Act. I have also read the 193 pages of the Supreme Court of the United States ruling on the Affordable Care Act. As I listen and watch politicians, political pundits, television talking heads in main stream and right-wing media, it is clear that they havent read these documents in their entirety. As always, they read the parts that support their point of view and then tell the story in their best inter est. the details of issues like the Affordhave access to the Internet, Goggle Affordable Care Act, and you will get the original 2,000-page version of the law and the 974 amended ver sion that I cite in this column. Do a key-word search for Inter nal Revenue Service and you get two references on pages 172 and 655, both of which are about admin istrative reporting procedures. The individual mandate which has Republicans and ill-informed voters jacked out of shape is covered on pages 164 to 170. This is Chapter 48-Maintenance of Minimum Essential Coverage. Section 5000ARequirement to Maintain Minimum Essential Coverage provides spehealthcare coverage. If a person is remotely associated with a health care program, they are considered to be medically insured. If not in a program or own a healthcare policy, then the exemptions to this law covers most every situationreligious organizations, too poor to purchase, non-citizens Republicans will tell you that the federal government will put people in the slammer who do not pay the penalty, assuming that they are one of the very few who arent exempt ed. Not true, just another Republi can scare tactic. On page 170 of the document and page 151 of the text, under Special Rules (A) Waiver of Criminal by a taxpayer to timely pay any penalty imposed by this section, such taxpayer shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution or penalty with respect to such failure. (B) Limitations on Liens and to any property of a taxpayer by reason of any failure to pay the penalty imposed by this section, or (ii) Levy on any such property with respect to such failure. What this means is that there is no mandate to buy healthcare insur ance because there is no enforcement mechanism. The law discusses a procedural penalty process, but the individual mandate cannot be enforced. The amount of misinformation, disinformation and outright lies from the Republicans is amazing. Governor Romney repeatedly says that people will lose their current insurance coveragethat is a lie. This law is so broad in its interpretations that if you have a healthcare plan written on the back of an envelope by your plumber, then the government will say, Atta boy. Affordable Healthcare Act is law of the land, the Congress should in a bipartisan way rework the law to remove objectionable issues and imwont happen. Republicans are in frenzy, biting themselves, frothing at the mouth and acting like morons about a law that is intended to provide healthcare to Americans. How can something as necessary as healthcare be considered so vile. Republicans need to have a look in the mirror and decide what kind of people they are. Currently, the federal government pays on average about 60% of state Medicaid cost. The Supreme Court ruled that the federal government cannot force states to expand their Medicaid programs, but states can voluntarily expand their Medicaid coverage, an option that has always been available to the states. Florida Governor Scott vows not to comply with the Affordable Healthcare Act, particularly in expanding Floridas Medicaid program and establishing healthcare exchanges at which Florida citizens can purchase healthcare insurance at, hopefully, reasonable cost. So, if you are a poor person who needs Medicaid services, but cur rently cant qualify, then you might ask Governor Scott why he refuses to expand Floridas Medicaid program to people like you. Governor Scott and 25 other Republican state governors say that expansion will cost the states mil lions. Not true. The federal government covers 100% of Medicaid exon the fourth year 90% of expansion cost. After that, the states assume slightly more cost per year. If you are one of the 1.95 million Floridians that expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act would cover, then forget it. Gover nor Scott says no dice. You are on your own. Live or die, but not on Floridas dime. Paying penalties under this act is a red herring. Here is why. We already collectively pay a penalty for medical care rendered to the uninsured at hospital emergency rooms. The cost to all of us paying for insurance was $43 billion in 2008. Paying for the uninsured adds about a $1,000 to our annual cost of healthcare insurance. So, providing healthcare for the uninsured and forcing those that can afford insur ance to buy healthcare insurance saves billions per year. Ill say it again. What is so evil, so vile, so reprehensible about a plan to provide people with healthcare? Politicians talk about leadership, pound their chest, wrap themselves in the Flag, paste the Constitution and Declaration of Independence to their foreheads and declare them selves super patriots and defenders of democracy and freedom, but then do everything possible to deprive people of a necessity like health care. Charlatans, one and all.

Calhoun County Deputy Jody waiting for an ambulance to arrive. According to Hoaglands report, the bullet appeared to have entered the lower area of his chin and traveled up and to the left before exiting his jaw, according to Hoaglands report. Jackson Fire & Rescue members arrived and assisted the injured man, who afterwards was transported to to Bay Medical Center in Panama City. As of July 2, Pitts remains hospitalized and is expected to undergo reconstructive surgery. The days events began with a call for help at 7:02 a.m. from Pitts estranged wife. She told deputies that her husband who had been living with his mother for the past month barged in her front door, holding a chrome handgun. She her head down and felt something pressed against the back of her head. She said he threatened her, stating: Shut up. Ill blow your brains out. You got one over on me. Im going to get one over on you! He wanted her keys and her cell phone, she said, explaining that he was angry that she had changed her cell phone number two days earlier. He left before deputies arrived but later spoke to them after calling his wife from her cell phone. Hoagland took the phone and told Pitts he wanted to hear his side of the story. Pitts did not respond. After a 30-second pause, Pitts hung up. Pitts responded a few minutes later to a text message sent by Lt. Adam Terry, calling him to tell him he was out of here now. Terry said Pitts was very upset and crying. Terry continued to maintain contact with Pitts via text. Around 11 a.m., he learned that Pitts planned to shoot himself. After pinging the cell phone he was using, Pitts location was determined to be in the area of Land Store on CR 286 just inside Jackson County. A second location check indicated Pitts was south of Ocheesee Landing boat ramp on a dirt road. Deputies responded to the scene and found his car backed into the woods on the west side of the road. Pitts was sitting in the drivers seat. As they approached, Pitts sped off. Deputies then pursued him as he fled southbound on Ocheesee Landing Road and then northbound on CR 286, with speeds topping 100 mph. Pitts then headed to Boneyard Road, where he stopped for a short time as deputies from two counties more before coming to a roadblock, where he stopped and then turned the gun on himself. The charges pending against him include aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, burglary with a convicted felon, felony fleeing and eluding, habitual driving while license suspended or revoked and violation of state probation.STANDOFF continued from page 1 Apalachee Valley VFW Post 12010 hosts program & awards presentation Saturday WALK TO LIBERTY

Y., Seymour, IDHavent you ever heard the warning, Beware of Greeks bearing strange gifts? No, were just kidding about that, but the custom is an ancient Greek one. The salt should be placed only in the right hand, never the left. No need to beware, though; it was a gesture of friendship, indicating the desire for the acquaintance to continue and grow stronger. Salt carries all sorts of luck charms. Throw a pinch over your left shoulder using your right hand to prevent bad luck (especially after sneezing), but dont glance after it or it wont work. Spilling salt unintention ally is considered a bad omen, as is knocking over a salt shaker or returning borrowed salt. For this reason, you should never lend salt, but give it away, instead. Similarly, never help another diner to salt, but let him reach for it. Never set the table with two salt shakers in front of any place setting. When you do set the table, though, put the salt shakThroughout history, salt has been such a significant element of life that it has been the subject of many stories, fables, and folktales and is commonly referenced in fairy tales.What can you tell me about quinoa? L. S., Fort Myers, FLQuinoa, pronounced keen-wa, is a highprotein grain common in South American diets and becoming more popular in North America. Native to the Andes Mountain region, quinoa was a staple of the Incas, along with corn and potatoes. Because it is very high in protein (over 16 percent) grain for vegetarians. Of the common grains, only noa stacks up as a com plete protein, having all eight amino acids in good balance. In addition, its considerably higher in calcium than rice or corn, and somewhat higher in phosphorus and iron, as well. Apart from the nutritional analysis, quinoa is a very versatile grain. Quick to cook (about 20 minutes), it can be substituted for rice, couscous, or even pasta in many traditional recipes. It bulks up to about four times its dry volume, so soup thickener for any soup where you might generally add barley or rice. Like couscous, quinoa is a lighter grain, not glutinous or sticky like some cooked grains. In fact, its gluten-free and wheat-free, which appeals to those who allergies. It has a very mild taste and its easy to digest. It is ideal in making stuffed peppers or pilafs. Some quinoa fans cook it and serve it straight, or sweetened, for a breakfast cereal.Is there any way to name a child to ensure that theyll never have a Almanac.com FOR RECIPES, GARDENING TIPS, AND WEATHER FORECASTS, VISIT:The Old Farmers Almanac Julyscommence on July 3.

A plan for long-term conservation of the Florida black bear, whose population is estimated at more than 3,000 today, compared with as few as 300 in the 1970s, was approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The Florida bear population is thriving. That is the success story, but we still have a lot of education to do, FWC Commission Chairman Kathy Barco said. Everyone loves bears, but not everyone wants them in their backyard. When people call to say, Relocate this bear, we need to help that neighbor hood learn the ways to coexist with the bear take care of your garbage, dog food and bird feeders. The Florida Black Bear Management Plan, avail able online at MyFWC. com/Bear, encourages public input into bear manage ment decisions at the local level. When implemented, the plan will help the FWC the challenges facing both people and bears in differ ent parts of the state. Bear populations in some areas are thriving, while populations in other places are still recovering. If we all work together to promote these protections, we can expand upon this great day today, said FWC Commissioner Ron Bergeron. Challenges addressed by the Black Bear Management Plan include: habitats and corridors on public and private lands that accommodate bears large home ranges of up to 60,000 acres and allow bears to roam safely. bear-proof cans for garbage and proper storage of birdseed and pet food, which can be irresistibly mouth watering treats for bears. and visitors about black bear behavior and conser vation, and how to remain safe if a bear comes into your yard or if you encoungo to MyFWC.com/Bear. Seven bear management units (BMUs) will be created, with each unit containing a geographically distinct bear subpopulation and a local advisory group of stakeholders interested in issues such as creating Bear Smart communities. The states largest land mammal is a subspecies of the American black bear and had been listed as a state-threatened species since 1974. Successful conservation of the Florida by the FWCs 2011 Biological Status Review, which reported the bear to be no longer at high risk of extinction. While Commissioners today passed a rule to remove the black bear from the list of state-threatened species, they also adopted a separate, new rule stating it is still illegal to injure or kill a bear in this state, or to possess or sell bear parts. The public and stakeholder groups participated extensively in developing Floridas bear management plan: holders provided input into the original draft bear management plan released on Nov. 10, 2011. comments were received on the draft plan and revised draft plan, with a majority of suggestions used by the FWC to improve the plan. form letters were received from Floridians. were made available: from Nov. 10, 2011, through Jan.10, 2012, on the draft plan, during which time four public workshops also were held and from April 13 until June 1, 2012 on the revised draft plan. The Florida black bear is among the 62 wildlife species that soon will join the list of species, like the bald eagle, already under an FWC management plan. Floridas new threatened species conservation model requires that management plans be created for all species that have been state-listed and that plans Those management plans give citi zens an active role in Floridas efforts to conserve its diverse wildlife for future generations. Page 16 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JULY 4, 2012Black bear plan gets approval from FWC Greetings Liberty County, As your 2012 democratic candidate for Sheriff, I would like to reach out to the citizens of Liberty County through this article and share a few of my thoughts and concerns about the upcoming election. As concerned citizens, I am sure that many of you have been following the embarrassing weekly articles about the Sheriffs Department. Just as most of you, indicator that dramatic changes must be made in the There are many hardworking men and women that employees should be judged by the actions or inactions of a few. There is always hope, but under the current administration I feel that it is safe for Liberty County to conclude that what you see, is what you get!, and I feel that this is unacceptable. As intelligent, hard working people, we all know about the administrative changes that need to be made, such as being good stewards of the peoples tax dollars, maintaining training requirements and the need to demonstrate professionalism within the department. That these characteristics are lacking is evident not enough. Some of the changes that have been suggested through another candidates political ads can be addressed quickly through establishing a positive mission for the department and drafting clear, fair and intelcan be completed easily enough, but it is the actions and leadership of the Sheriff throughout the full term of department can not be changed by the Sheriff acting solely as an administrator. However, what is required is a fresh start with a Sheriff that is motivated through a deep love for this county and its citizens. Becoming Sheriff is not something to be checked off on as an accomplishment at the end of a career. It is a deep seeded motivation to right what is wrong and serve tirelessly to protect this community. With your Sheriff that you can be proud of. As your candidate, what I offer is this: Honesty and Accountability. People that know me can attest that being honest is a way of life for me, not an image to be projected for political gain. As your Sheriff, you will be able to rely on the fact that when a situation arises that merits a comment or action from me it will be me Eddie Joe White that does it, not my staff. As your Sheriff, you will also be able to rely on the fact that I possess the mental toughness and physical ability to work along side my employees for many years to come. Upon my election, a basic plan of action will be implemented. As you know, we employ more deputies than ever before but have less actual law enforcement. I plan to reduce the administrative rank structure of the to work an opportunity to do so. The days of having one deputy on duty will be over. I will focus resources on schools and drug enforcement.

TO MIDNIGHTThe bald eagle population is increasing in Florida, which continues to be one of the top spots in the lower 48 states for bald eagles to nest and raise their young. Based on its 2011 aerial survey, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) estimates there are 1,457 active bald eagle nests in Florida, nearly a nine percent increase since 2008, when the state implemented a bald eagle management plan. Long-term success with bald the species recovery from just 88 active nests in 1973. Today at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland, leaders from the FWC and Audubon Florida highlighted the bald eagles recovery and the ongoing challenge of conserving these large raptors. They said celebrating the bald eagles resurgence in Florida was a great way to kick off the nations 236th anniversary of declaring independence. Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery in Florida. The FWC and Audubon are working together to protect bald eagles in Florida, so these majestic raptors will continue to soar as a symbol of national pride and conservation success, said FWC Chairman Kenneth Wright. For 20 years, Audubon Florida has recruited citizen-scientists to monitor eagles and their nests through its EagleWatch program, active in more than 40 counties. By monitoring more than 20 percent of the states nesting pairs, in conserving the species. Audubon is proud to have played a role in the bald eagles amazing success story in Florida, said Eric Draper, executive director for Audubon Florida. Our dedicated staff and EagleWatch volunteers, along with our state agency partners, have helped to identify potential threats to these work is far from done. Together, we are leading the nation in the protection of this important and iconic species. Working with ranchers and other landowners to protect bald eagle habitat is another priority for Audubon, with its involvement going back 50 years to the start of the Cooperative Kissimmee Eagle Sanctuary Program. Floridas greatest concentrations of bald eagle nesting territories are clustered around coastal and freshwater areas such as the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes. In 2011, Osceola and Polk for highest number of documented bald eagle nests. Floridians and visitors are encouraged to get outdoors on July 4 and throughout the year to enjoy the states many parks and public lands Eagle Nest Locator at MyFWC.com/Eagle. Bald eagles almost disappeared from the lower 48 states by the mid-20th century, with an estimated 417 pairs in the United States in 1963. The use of the now-banned pesticide DDT was causing eggshells to weaken and break under the weight of adults incubating eggs. Today, a healthy and stable eagle population in Florida will depend on continued availability of appropriate nesting and foraging habitats, as well as protection from disturbance during the nesting season. While the bald eagle is no longer listed as an endangered or threatened species, it is federally protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and by state rule (F.A.C. 68A-16.002). It is illegal to feed, disturb, take or possess a bald eagle, its feathers, nest or eggs. The public can help conserve bald eagles in Florida by following state guidelines for activities near eagle nests and by reporting new eagle nest locations to BaldEagle@MyFWC. com. The goal of the FWC bald eagle management plan, developed with public input, is to maintain a stable or increasing bald eagle population throughout Florida. The FWC provides guidelines for avoiding disturbance to nesting eagles and a permitting framework for activities that cannot adhere to the guidelines. Audubons Center for Birds of Prey contributes to eagle conservation through its specialized clinical care and EagleWatch program. The Center recently celebrated the 450th rehabilitated bald eagle released back into the wild since 1979.For more on bald eagles, go to MyFWC.com/Eagle.

C. as the winners of Gulf Coast Electric Cooperatives Youth Tour competi tion. GCECs local competition is part of the national Rural Electric Youth Tour program that rural electric cooperatives across the nation participate in. Each year, the Cooperative sponsors the Youth Tour contest for eleventh-graders whose parents are members of GCEC. Contestants are interviewed by a panel of three judges from the electric cooperative industry and two winners are chosen to travel on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D. C. in June. While in Washington, the students toured the numerous museums; Arlington National Cemetery; the Iwo Jima Monument; the U. S. Capitol area; the Korean, Lincoln, Vietnam, FDR, Jefferson and World War II Memorials; Mt. Vernon and the National Cathedral. They also enjoyed the U. S. Marine Corps Sunset Parade; a boat cruise and dance on the Potomac River and ended their trip by seeing the musical Memphis at the Kennedy Center. A highlight of the trip was the National Youth Day rally, where they joined other eleventh graders from across the nation. We were proud to have Alexa and Blake represent Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative in Washington, said GCEC Manager of Marketing and Member Services, Kristin Evans. The Washington, D. C. Youth Tour Program has been in existence since 1958 when 34 students from Iowa and a handful of chaperones visited Washington for a week long study tour. By 1964, the program was catching on, and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association began to coordinate the efforts of the co-ops. Since then, thousands of young people have experienced this oncein-a-lifetime opportunity to visit our nations capitol and learn about our government. Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative is part of the Touchstone Energy national alliance of local, consumer-owned electric cooperatives providing high standards of service to customers large and small. GCEC serves approximately 20,200 meters in Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson, Walton and Washington counties and in the municipalities of Wewahitchka, Ebro, White City, Lynn Haven, Fountain and Southport.

JULY 4, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 21 BY ANN HOSFORD SMITH President of the Bristol Lions ClubBarefoot, the young boy kicked dust along the pathway to the big river near Stiff-n-Ugly. He was a quiet child, sometimes teased for being a spoiled baby in his family of six children. The familys roots ran as deep as the big cypress trees in the mossy river swamps nearby. But here in the pine-scented evergreen woods of Liberty County, a man was born with determination and commitment to help others. Lester Summers grew up trying to make life better for the community he loved, by Because of his deep loyalty to the vision and hearing needs of Liberty County, the Bristol Lions Club has honored him by donating a monetary gift to a local resident with vision needs and by sharing the story of his special life. Lester Summers was born in his familys Florida cracker-style home in Estiffanulga August 29, 1935. His father, Addison Lewis Summers, Sr. had rushed into town to fetch Dr. Burns to help with the delivery, but they both arrived too late. Lester had already emerged, full of his notable energy despite his small frame. He was the sixth and last child of Jessie Lee McDaniel Summers (and Addison, Sr.) and was named for his fathers brother. His older siblings were Iona Summers Eubanks, Elnita Summers, Addison, Jr., Joyce Summers Hosford and Gordon Summers. Life was tough for everyone after the Depression, but Lesters family never went hungry. Like so many Liberty County folks, the children helped their parents with a large garden and farm animals. In those days there were neither fans nor air conditioning and homegrown meals were prepared on a hot woodstove, even in summer. Hogs and deer were cured in the smokehouse and the family siblings learned how to handle an axe, wedge and machete at an early age. Their father always admonished them to never go swimming in the big river because the swift currents were notorious for sweeping people under to their lakes and creeks. His father had a second rule Never eat spinach because it was a Yankee green! Lester graduated from Liberty County High School and carried his familys spirit of hard work, teamwork and service into the Army during World War II. He served stateside and after the war, joined the Army Reserves. He returned to Bristol to work for Hudson and Edith Strickland at their IGA grocery and hardware store (now Stricklands Ace Hardware) where he became the go-to man because of his practical knowledge of hardware and dependable customer service. Eventually Lester decided to pursue a business education and he chose Bob Jones University, a school with strong Christian ties. After college, he returned to north Florida where he sold insurance for many years, spending a year in Pensacola, then returning home to Liberty County. In March 1965, he was elected Liberty County Tax Collector and served faithfully in this position for 32 years. Lesters family still remembers how he would wake up in the middle of the night to go help someone needing a car or truck tag for their work. He would carry his case someone couldnt make it to his learned to be frugal at an early age and dollar bill he ever earned! On April 1, 1966, Lester Summers became a new member of the Lions Club of Bristol and he served in a number of knew that many of the most important community services are accomplished by dedicated unpaid volunteers. Lester rarely missed a Lions Club meeting and Each year he could be found next to the concession stand at the Liberty County Homecoming football game, enthusiastically selling and counting shotgun drawing tickets to raise money for the Lions vision initiatives. At Lake Mystic Baptist Church, he served as a faithful member and deacon, always meeting people at the front door with his trademark smile and handshake. He also helped establish and was a member of the Liberty County Ambulance Service and Fire Department. His active volunteer work included being Past President of the American Cancer Society, a member of the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce, a Mason of Dixie Lodge No. 109 and a fundraiser for the LCHS Jr. ROTC. Linda Duggar Summers, after seeing her while singing at a church event. They had two children, Angela Summers Read and Walt Summers, both of Bristol. After many years of marriage he lost Linda to cancer. He then married Maxine P. Summers and they enjoyed 15 good years together traveling, hunting Maxine remembers how he knocked on her front door and stood there on the front stoop to ask her if she would marry him. She still has fond memories of how loving and fair he was to all their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He taught Maxine to deer hunt and shoot a gun after she was 60 years old with him. A highlight every August, Lester and worms. He was also an avid FSU Seminole fan. Lester Summers truly had a gift for helping others and he made a lasting impact on those he knew. He went to be with the Lord May 18, 2012. Both his family and the surrounding community will deeply miss him.A lifetime of service Remembering Lester Summers Lesters family remembers how he would wake up in the middle of the night to go help someone needing a car or truck tag for their work.

Page 24 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JULY 4, 2012 TALLAHASSEE Secretary of State Ken Detzner has announced the creation of the Florida Panhandle Shipwreck Trail, a series of 12 shipwrecks located offshore of Pensacola, Destin, Panama City and Port St. Joe. The shipwreck trail was developed by the Florida Department of States Underwater Archaeology Team, in partnership with Panhandle waterfront communities, in an effort to stimulate tourism and educate residents and visitors about Floridas history. This new underwater trail represents our latest effort to showcase a portion of Floridas vast collection of shipwrecks, said Secretary Detzner. Each location along the Florida Panhandle Shipwreck Trail offers an adventurous opportunity for heritage, recreational and ecological tourism. The Florida Panhandle Shipwreck Trail is highlighted by an interactive website that features underwater videos of each shipwreck, the locations of local dive shops and the current marine weather forecast. To guide visitors participating dive operators. The passport contains information about each of the shipwrecks, a dive log to record each stop and a place to validate the visit with Many of the shipwrecks along the trail were sunk to and diving destinations in varying depths of water with countless varieties of sea life. The 12 shipwrecks were chosen by a consensus of local dive operators, based on popular demand, historical context and ecological diversity. Off Pensacola, the veteran aircraft carrier USS Orisbecome one of the most sought-after diving destina tions. Nearby are the U.S. Navy dive tender YDT-14, a freighter that hauled fruit from Central America, was a great location for divers to practice their skills and learn about marine life. Off Destin, the tugboat Miss Louise is a perfect destination for novice and intermediate divers. Off intact from the top down between 40 and 85 feet of water.
