Many have followed her journey online as she struggled to maintain her health. DANIEL WILLIAMS PHOTOS GETTING IN CONDITIONby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA Bristol woman who went into work a few minutes early Tuesday morning found herself at the mercy of a gun-wielding man who threatened to kill her if she didnt hand over money he believed was being kept in the scale house at Whitfields Recycling in Quincy. I really dont know how I lived through that, said Jessica Eberly, 22. I knew he was going to shoot me if I didnt give him something. But other than a $29 in change, she said there was nothing to give him. The business has a procedure in place to keep cash from being left in the building overnight. I told him, Sir, theres no money in here. He didnt believe her. He said I was a liar, pulled the hammer on the gun and threatened to shoot me, she said. I went into survival mode. All I could think of was what to do to get him out without hurting me. She got a key and opened the register, which had only a small amount of change. She opened the cabinet and pulled out all the desk drawers so he could see for himself. He spotted a bank bag change. She took it out and threw it at his feet and told him, Im not lying. Theres no cash in this building! She pleaded with him, Please dont kill me. Take my wallet. She remembered thinking, This cant be how Im going to die. The man, who had been cursing at her, making threats and waving the gun, suddenly got quiet. Something spooked him, she said, speculating that he might have heard a car driving near the business on Blue Star Highway. He bent down, picked up the bag of change and ran out. I walked to the door to be sure I was safe, she said, fearful that he might turn around and come back to kill her. She stepped out as two other employees were driving up. They saw her emerge from the scale house, doubled over and holding her stomach, and realized something was wrong. One employee jumped out of the car and ran to check the back of the business while the other drove off to look for the suspect. Business owner Robert Manspeaker said the recycling business is next to a small car lot. It appears the suspect climbed up on a vehicle and jumped the fence onto his property. He knocked off the outside surveillance cameras and then hid in a port-a-potty next to the scale house, he said.

Until her death Monday afternoon, Ramsey A heart defect was discovered when she was only two weeks old. Just before she was much that she had a fairly active life and as a teenager, enjoyed cheerleading, dance classes and participating in the LCHS marching band. A leak was discovered in a heart value in 2006, requiring another bypass. Three years later, doctors discovered she had pulmonary hypertension and congestive heart failure. She was put on an organ waiting list in 2009. In September 2010, she underwent a heart transplant and enjoyed a quick recovery. She was back home in Bristol six weeks after the surgery at Shands. Her future looked bright. In July 2012, she learned she was in organ rejection and was put on different medications in an attempt to keep her heart working in her body. She shared that news on her Facebook page July 11, writing: I am in heart rejection. So back up to 100 mg of Prednisone I go....Also increasing anti-rejection med. She added, Please pray this all works and that rejection will be gone at biopsy Aug. 15. A long list of friends and family responded to her post, offering their prayers and giving her words of encouragement. She was looking forward to being in Orlando this week with her mother, Teresa Hamlin, and her younger brother. She had rested up and monitored her health with care to get ready for the trip. On Saturday, she posted pictures of herself, her mom and her brother enjoying a meal at Joes Crab Shack in Orlando. But Monday, there was an alarming note on her Facebook wall.

If you believe the U.S. should engage in another Middle East war, then elect Mitt Romney as president. Romney and his Neocon friends are beating the war drums to join Israel in a unilateral strike on Iran. Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham both want the U.S. to get involved in the civil war in Syria. Help the Syrian rebels overthrow the Assad government. This is a case of be careful for what you wish for because, other than overthrowing the Assad government, it isnt a certainty that the rebels would be friendly to the U.S. I would hope that the American people would be skeptical of the Republican war drumming, particularly after America was scammed by the George Bush administration as to the reasons for invading Iraq. Fool me once No doubt that Iran is involved in the Syrian fray. No doubt that Russia and China are protecting Iran and the status quo in the Middle East which begs the question, what should the U.S. do about it? If you ask Romney, the Neocons and the John McCains, the answer is that the U.S. should go over there and teach those foreigners a lesson. But, Romney, the Neocons and the John McCains arent rights in other countries is a mainstay of the Neocon argument for invading other countries. What does it say about Americas human rights when the American government sends Americas youth on a fools errand to be killed or maimed, all in the name of protecting human rights in countries half way round the world. Romney is a neophyte in foreign policy and international ry, but at least he was in the Senate and exposed to the Iraq war to end the war. He did. He followed the George Bush/Iraqi plan for ending the Iraq war. Much to the consternation of the Neocons, he announced a date to end U.S. involvement in Afghanistan. battle to the enemy. The U.S. drone program has wacked a recognized the need for additional forces in Afghanistan and added 30,000 troops to the mix. Romneys Israeli ace in the hole is that he and Israels ton Consulting Group many years back. They are buddies. Netanyahu is a strong, opinionated person and Romney, who bends with the political winds, will be like silly putty in Netanyahus hands. In my view, Israel will become the 51st state in a Romney presidency. But its not just the threat of the Iranians getting the bomb that has the Neocons jacked out of shape. Those pesky Chinese are claiming all of the South China Sea as theirs which includes the Spratly Islands. The South China Sea is about 425,000 square kilometers stretching south from Taiwan to everywhere But China isnt alone in their South Taiwan and Malaysia beg to differ. These countries also claim an ownership interest in the hundreds of islands that comprise the Spratly Islands. The U.S. is concerned with Chinas obvious effort to assert regional control and with Irans effort to develop nuclear weapons, what should the U.S. do about the dust up over the Spratleys? Should the U.S. go to war over some islands of which 99.9% of Americans have no clue as to their location or the regional issues involved? China Americas economic and security interest in Southeast and a trading partner. nated the ten-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) of which the U.S. is a partner. The ASEAN group provides a bulwark against Chinas efforts to expand their inU.S., the ASEAN nations and China a forum to discuss issues of mutual interest. Conversely, Romney says he is going to be tough on China. parently not in Romneys lexicon, but at some point, the bad guys call your bluff. Its put up or shut up time. So, another U.S. war? If Romney and the Neocons want to police the world, then Also, bring back the draft with no deferments. Everyone or be killed. No deferments for going to Harvard or anything else. If you are eighteen, a warm body, standing up, then you are in the Army. A war tax and drafting all of Americas youth will end the Neocon drumbeat for war. Americans love a war but not enough to pay for it. When the Neocons, the elite, the 1%, the job creators, senators, representatives and movers and shakers realize that their kids or grandkids are going to get an allexpense paid trip to a rock pile in the Middle East to defend Americas values, then Americas foreign policy will get a major overhaul. When anyone, whether it be a Neocon, politician or rightwing nut job, suggest that America go to war to promote American values, protect human rights or overthrow disliked despotic rulers, that person should have to spend an entire day eyes. If that doesnt convince war lovers that war isnt glamor ous, then they should spend a day with a veteran with a traumatic brain injury. Ill say it again. War is a dirty, dangerous business. We kill them. They kill us. Been there, done that.

AUGUST 1, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift China and the coming crashWASHINGTON China reported 7.6 percent per annum growth in the second quarter of 2012, down from over eight past years when double-digit growth rates were the norm. Chinas growth rate is still more than three times what the United States and other Western economies are experienc ing, so its premature to get out the crying towels. Its not too soon to weigh the impact of Chinas slowing economy on China and on the U.S. Now the worlds second largest economy, after overtaking Japan last year, Chinas meteoric rise in wealth and productivity has been the envy of the world. Its booming economy has moved millions of people out of poverty in a record amount of time, but there are signs now that China is pulling back and retrenching, that a steeper fall could be ahead, with an impact that reaches far beyond its borders. Anyone who has visited China in the last several years comes home amazed at the level of construction, how the government can build anything it wants without worrying about how much it costs. If the economy shrinks, one spending. The government recently undertook an ambitious program to build aircraft carriers, which are expensive and vulnerable to attack and which appear to be more of a status symbol for the Chinese than a serious component of their national security. The U.S. would be happy if China reduced its mili tary expenditures. Disputes in the South China Sea over sovereignty might be more easily resolved if China had both U.S. allies, are challenging Chinas sovereignty in those waters. On the U.S. home front, Chinas economic woes could hurt consumers. Think about it; Walmart for all intent and purposes functions like a Chinese distributor. Almost everything sold at Walmart is made in China. And thats true in higher-end stores as well; check the labels; made in China is everywhere. If China is hit with a slowdown, theyll have to make it up somewhere and the likelihood is that prices of Chinese goods in U.S. stores will go up. Much of the media commentary these days is focused on Europe and what happens in Spain, and in Greece and how the Germans are coping with Moodys downgrade of their economy from its Triple-A rating. The fate of the Euro, whether it is downgraded or even eliminated, is important but could have less immediate impact in the U.S. than what happens to the Chinese currency. Mitt Romney is trying to make China an issue in the presidential race, saying he wont let its government continue to get away with currency manipulation that prices its that is a drag on the U.S. economy. How Romney would alter Chinas behavior he doesnt say and besides, it may not be necessary. If the Chinese economy falters, the government will have no choice but to raise taxes and then the Chinese currency is going to rise on its own. The best analogy is to think of the currency as though it were water behind a dam. Eventually, the pressure will be so great to let the currency rise, there will be no holding it back. Its not only Romney whos faulting China. In testimony before Congress last week, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke sought to place some of the blame for the sluggish recovery worldwide on Chinas currency policy, saying it is blocking what might be a more normal recovery process in the global economy. Bernanke would do better looking closer to home for a solution than counting on the Chinese to change their behavior before they have to.

Last year, the Bureau of Unclaimed Property approved nearly 300,000 claims to reunite Floridians with their unclaimed property. During these challenging economic times, I am proud that our Bureau of Unclaimed Property has been successful in reuniting a record number of Floridians with their unclaimed cash and property, CFO Atwater said. Through their diligent, proactive efforts, weve been able to get more money back in the pockets of hard working Floridians, where it belongs. Currently, the bureau holds unclaimed property accounts valued at more than $1 billion, mostly from dormant accounts in ance and utility companies, securities and trust holdings. In addition to money and securities, unclaimed property includes tangible property such as watches, jewelry, coins, currency, stamps, historical items and other miscellaneous articles from abandoned safe deposit boxes. During Jeff Atwaters tenure as CFO, the department has returned record amounts to Floridiansmore than $323.6 million since January 2011.

She invites Floridians to suggest slogans that may be used to raise awareness by submitting concepts via MyFloridaLegal.com by Aug.10 at 5 p.m. Raising awareness about the dangers of abusing prescription drugs while pregnant is a crucial component of preventing neonatal abstinence syndrome, stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. I encourage Floridians to submit ideas for slogans that will ultimately help promote healthy outcomes for mothers and their children. In hospitals across our state, babies are born suffering from neonatal abstinence syndrome, which is a collection of problems that occur in newborns that have been exposed to addictive drugs while in the womb. Symptoms include: fever, seizures, blotchy skin, incessant shrill cries, respiratory problems and extreme sensitivity to sounds and light. Bondi chairs the Statewide Task Force on Prescription Drug Abuse and Newborns which is charged with examining the scope of the problem of prescription drug abuse by expectant mothers, the costs associated with caring for babies with neonatal abstinence syndrome, the long-term effects of the syndrome and prevention strategies.

Rally Sunday, August 5 at 6 p.m. (CT) with Greg Laurie. Greg Laurie is the pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship (one of Amer icas largest churches) in Riverside, CA. He is the author of over 30 books, including the Gold Medallion Award winner, The Upside-Down Church, as well as Are We Living in the Last Days and Im Going on a Diet Tomorrow and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves You can New Believers Bible and The Seekers Bible. Host of the Harvest: Greg Laurie television program and the nationally syndicated radio program A New Beginning, Greg Laurie is also founder and featured speaker for Harvest Crusades contemporary, large-scale evangelistic outreaches, which local churches organize nation ally and internationally. A thousand points of light: Its a phrase we as Americans have come to understand as expressing the notion that a greater goal, a greater light, can be achieved as everyone shines from their respective place on the map. Peggy Noonan most famously employed it in a speech she wrote for former president George H. W. Bush. But its origin is most likely derived from C.S. Lewis, who in his book The Magicians Nephew wrote, One moment there had been nothing but darkness; next moment a thousand, thousand points of light leaped out There may be no better use for the term than associating it with Harvest America! As of this week, there will be 1,000 host sites dotting the national landscape that have agreed to become points of light in presenting the gospel on August 26. Carr Chapel in Clarksville on NW SR 73 will one of those points of Lights here in Calhoun County. Harvest America wasnt undertaken solely to save America. Our mission is to proclaim the gospel, to be a light that shines in darkness, to provide a message of hope to those who are without God and without hope in this present world. But the outcome of presenting the gospel will be transforming. Lives will be changed. Hope will be restored in the lives of thousands. And because of this, America will be a better place. America wasnt established under the rule of a sovereign king or queen passed down from generational bloodlines. Our forefathers anticipated and imagined a government where its citizens and its leaders willingly submitted to the One True King. For most of our founding fathers, that guiding light was Jesus Christ. While Harvest America most likely wont change our political discourse or alter the course of our nation, every point of light, every venue from which the light of the gospel shines forth August 26, will bring change. There will be more than a thousand sites where Americans will submit their lives to Christ. Collectively, we will impact our nation.

Dedicated Honest Fair Experienced Friendly HardworkingBeginning Aug. 1, Health and Human Ser vices (HHS) Secretary Katheleen Sebelius announced that 47 million women are getting greater control over their health care and access to eight new prevention-related health care services without paying more out of their own pocket. Previously some insurance companies did not cover these preventive services for women at all under their health plans, while some women had to pay deductibles or co-pays for the care they needed to stay healthy. The new rules in the health care law requir ing coverage of these services take effect at the next renewal date on or after Aug. 1for most health insurance plans. women will have access to even more life-saving preventive care free of charge. According to a new HHS report also released today, approximately 47 million women are in health plans that must cover these new pre ventive services at no charge. Women, not insur ance companies, can now make health deci sions that will keep them healthy, catch potentially serious conditions at an earlier state and protect them and their families from crushing medical bills. President Obama is moving our country for ward by giving women control over their health care, Secretary Sebelius said. This law puts women and their doctors, not insurance companies or the government, in charge of health care decisions. The eight new prevention-related services are: tes screening that helps protect pregnant women from one of the most serious pregnancy-related diseases. personal violence screening and counseling. traceptive methods and contraceptive education and counseling. port, supplies and counseling. women 30 or older. infections counseling for sexually-active women. counseling for sexuallyactive women. The health care law has already helped women in private plans and Medicare for the first time gain access to potentially life-saving tests and services, such as mam mograms, cholesterol without coinsurance or deductibles. The announcement generally requiring insur ance companies to offer, with no co-pay, addition al vital screenings and tests to help keep women healthy throughout their lives. These services are based on recommenda of Medicine, which relied on independent physicians, nurses, scientists and other experts as well as evidence-based research to develop its recommendations. These preventive ser vices will be offered without cost sharing beginning today in all new health plans. and issuers that have maintained grandfathered status are not required to addition, certain nonprofit religious organizations, such as churches and schools, are not required to cover these services. The Obama administra tion will continue to work with all employers to and resources they need to implement the health care law in a way that protects womens health while making commonsense accommodations for values like religious liberty. For women who are pregnant or nursing, the new preventive services include gestational diabetes screening as well as breast-feeding support, counseling and supplies. Health services already provided under the health care law include folic acid supplements for women who may become pregnant, Hepatitis B screening for pregnant women and anemia screening for pregnant women. Women Medicare beneficiaries may already receive such preventive services as annual wellness visits, mammograms and bone mass measurement for those at risk of osteoporosis and diabetes screening. Approximately 24.7 million women with Medicare used at least one free preventive service in 2011, including the new annual wellness visit. Because of the Affordable Care Act, secure, affordable coverage is becoming a reality for millions of American women and families. Men and children are also able to take advantage of preventive ser vices at no extra charge under the health care law. These services include munizations, screenings for cancers, high blood pressure and cholesterol and depression.

Page 18 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 1, 2012Submitted by Dr. Andrew Boggs RamseyThe origin of the forefathers of Chief Tuskie Hajo/ Cochrane, like that of all Creek people, was in a land of the west whence our earliest forefathers crossed a great river in their passage to the southeastern area of the North American continent. In the early 19th century, there occurred disruptions which rapidly increased the unsettling of the Creek people and the incidence of their emigration southward into their Florida lands. Polly Parrots father, Tuskie Hajo/ Cochrane was in the emigra tion southward from Alabama to the Apalachicola River in Florida. County were formed in 1815, John J. Boggs (Tauchulunah), son of Polly Parrot, was born in towns were settled. His mother was Polly Parrot, the daughter of Tuskie Hajo/ Cochrane and his bought wife, Polly. Tuskie Hajo is listed on the Creek Census taken between November 1831 and December 1833, but he died in 1833 before the removal of most of Creek people to Texas under Tuskie Hajo/ Davey and John Blount. The Apalachicola Band in Florida was formally created as a political unit by the treaty of Camp Moultrie, which was signed in 1823. One of the signers was Tuskie Hajo/ Cochrane. At the signing of the Treaty of Camp Moultrie, Tuske Hajo was already living at Cochranetown; this treaty established the reservation in Blountstown where Cochranetown and Blountstown were located. Polly Parrot decided that she would not go to Texas under the new Tuskie Hajo Davey and she remained in lated spot in which the clan would stay, Polly Parrot being a determined woman. The runners returned, reported and Polly decided on a place now located on the Jackson County and Calhoun County line as a place to settle. It has high hills and it came to be known as Boggs Bond or the Boggs Indian Refuge lands. You can go in any direction from Boggs Pond and be closer to civilization than you are at Boggs Pond. It was desolate and beautiful. Cattle ran loose in the woods and in those days the Creeks began to run cattle. All working together, they took the black fertile soil from Boggs Pond and spread it on top of the sandy land. John Boggs and his wife, Mary Musgrove lived with the other members of the community by small scale farming and the running of cattle. John and Mary had two sons and several daughters. They lived the Indian way, without being troubled with the white people. The Creek community at Boggs Pond had approximately 19 family units at its height. The great-grandfather of Dr. Andrew Boggs Ramsey was John James William Joseph Boggs, Tuskie Hajo/ Boggs (full blooded). He married Sarah E. Smith, an Indian woman living in Ocheese and they continued to live in a completely Indian way until their later years when the white population in the area began to increase. Sarah, having a told her son, James Daniel Boggs, that the days of their way of life was numbered. She told him he must go away and learn the ways of the white man. She said, Get out, get a job and learn, so that we may live as the whites. She realized that the non Indian population was increasing in number and the isolation for the Indian People could not last much longer. To survive, James Daniel Boggs, listened to his mother and grandmother, Mary Musgrove Chipola River. He saved all of his money as his mother and grandmother advised and opened a trading post in Blountstown. It became the largest general store in the area. James D. Boggs was lighter in color than his sisters and easily passed for white. Therefore, he was able to sell not only to Indian People, but to the non Indian population. James met a Creek Indian girl, a descendent of Nancy Knight. At 15, Alice McClellan married James Daniel Boggs. Alice McClellan was a Creek Indian who lived in Florida before it became a state and was British West Florida. Elijah Ward was the son of Nancy Knight (Nahakv) and Elijahs wife, Sarah Cochrane, was reported to have been kin to Tuskie Hajo/ Cochrane. Their daugher, Gabriella Ward married John B. Meigs, he was the youngest son of Josiah of Georgia. Josiah Meigs was also a commissioner Government in 1819 acting on claims west of the Pearl River. Alice McClellans fathers mother was Samatha Mixon, whose mother, Hodchee, was from Georgia. Tuskie Hajo/ James Daniel Boggs, followed the Creek custom of living with his wifes people who were residing in Blountstown. This Blountstown area and away from Boggs Pond. The Piggly Wiggly Supermarket established by James A. Ramsey (Harjo) and his wife, Kathleen Boggs, daughter of James D. and Alice Boggs, was in the same building as her fathers General Store. The Creeks have survived in the homeland, kept some of the Creek traditions and many speak some of the Creek language. We still associate with other Creek Indian families in the area who are descendents of the Pippens, Lintons, Sheltons, Montfords, Hill, Neals, McGhees and Andersons. The Apalachicolas are members of a state recognized Indian Tribe, The Florida Tribe of Eastern Creek Indians, along with our cousins, the Wards centered in Bruce. Though the Creeks lost much of their culture, they have endured and did not lose sight of their heritage. The descendants of Tuskie Hajo/ Cochrane living in Calhoun County have been joined during the last few years by descendants of Chief John Blount. The most notable is Mary Blount. The traditional Square Grounds for the North Florida (The Pine Arbor Trial Town) are located in the Blountstown area where Berry, Green Corn, Little Green Corn and the Harvest Busks are still observed by our people. One of the better Creek Indian Museums is located at the Calhoun County staffed by Mary Nell Bailey and Connie Palmer. These two Creek ladies are recognized world wide along with their mother, Estelle OBryan, for their designs made from pine straw. Creek schools are operated in Blountstown, Panama City, Bruce and Pensacola to keep the Creek language, heritage and history alive and used. The people are still here thanks to Polly Parrots determination. Her bravery is still the guiding light and inspiration to all Creek people living in the area. Polly Parrots legacy inspires her descendants JOURNEY STORIES The Panhandle Pioneer Settlement in Blountstown is featuring a special exhibit in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities Council Museum on Main Street. The exhibit, known as Journey Stories, is on view in the settlement clubhouse and will run from July 14 August 25, 2012. This is the only facility located in North Florida that has been selected for the exhibit. All other locations are in South Central and South Florida. The story shown here is one of many included in the exhibit. Submitted by Mae Belle Miles GranthamSamuel Henry Grantham was born December 25, 1875. He came to Calhoun County as a young man and settled in the Chipola area. He was a hardworking man, doing work in the woods dipping turpentine. He married Annie Belle Godwin Syfrett in 1929. Annie already had one son, Ed Hardy Syfrett, Mattie, Charles, Curtis, Harvey and Pauline. Samuel cut the logs and built a home near Victory Hill Church. They used an ox, Tobe, to help grow a garden while Samuel worked other jobs. He worked with the Works Progress Administration (WPA) helping to dig Lake Hilda in Blountstown. He would sometimes walk to work and them back home which was a distance used shovels and wheel barrows along with a machine called a pan pulled by mules or horses. Their salary was on 8 cents per hour. In 1939, Samuel got pneumonia and died leaving Annie to carry on with the raising of the family. Samuel is buried in the Mt. Olive Cemetery, north of Altha in Calhoun County, Florida. Annie went to work at the Shipyard in Panama City. She rode the bus called Maritime to get to work, where she was a task welder. Later on, she picked cotton. There were hard times for the family in the early 1940s. Annie died after a long bout with cancer when years old. This left the children as orphans since both parents had died. To keep the children together, Lee and Queenie Godwin, their mothers brother and his wife, took them into their home. Dur ing these growing up years, the children learned to do with very little. They have many memories of doing things just to get by. They talk of memories of their mom praying for them. Annie is buried in the Victory Hill Cemetery in the Chipola Community near where they lived. This is a good family which grew up under extreme hardships, but has contributed to their respective communities in a positive way.Samuel Henry Granthams hard working family

The award, which is sponsored by the Florida Department of A griculture and Consumer Services, recognizes agricultural enterprises that demonstrate leadership in developing and implementing innovated and progressive techniques to safeguard the environment and conserve natural resources. Agriculture is not your stereotypical Norman Rockwell painting, said Commissioner Putnam. These operations are just two examples of how the industry is using high-tech solutions and innovation to maintain its position as one of the states strongest economic pillars, but also ensure that the natural resources Florida is known for are available for generations to come. The 2012 Agricultural Environmental Leader ship A ward Recipients are: Paul and Annick Deroose and owned by Reginald Deroose of Apopka.

FLORIDA AGRICULTURE & CONSUMER SERVICES COMMISSIONERAdam Putnam Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam announces recipients of agricultural environmental leadership awardWinds of change are coming if Congress doesnt extend tax creditPENSACOLA The GE Wind Turbine Plant in Pensacola has 500 employees. Now, their jobs and those of thousands of others could be in jeopardy because Congress has stalled on a decision about the production tax credit for the wind industry. L arry Thomas, general manager of E nergy H ardware, manufactures supplies for GE and others in the wind industry. H e says renewable energies should be supported as is the fossil-fuel industry. Theres permanent tax credits that have always been in place for coal and oil. Can we grab some thats already permanent? Can that be used over here on the renewable side? Extending the tax credit has bipartisan support, and members of both parties are pushing for a swift exten sion of the temporary credit. But there are also calls to let it expire. E ven though the tax credit doesnt expire until years end, Thomas says, the uncertainty is stalling job orders. A ccording to the A merican Wind E nergy A ssociation, letting the tax credit expire will eliminate approximately 37,000 jobs nationwide. Phyllis Cuttino, director of the Pew Environment Groups Clean Energy Program, says Congress needs to realize the impact this uncertainty is having on the market. Causing this kind of turmoil and uncertainty in a market is completely unnecessary. There hasnt really been any new orders for wind and that is going to have For example, Cuttino says, a wind-turbine manufacturer in Pennsylvania will lay off 30 percent of its workforce if the tax credit isnt extended.

Page 26 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 1, 2012I couldnt believe my ears: genetically en gineered mosquitoes? Why on Earth would they be created? And I understand there are plans to release them into the wild? Marissa Abingdon, Sumter, SCYes its true, genetically engineered mosquitoes, which were bred in the lab to transmit a gene during the reproductive process that kills their offspring, have already been used on an experimental basis in three countriesthe Cayman Islands, Malaysia and Brazilto counteract the quickly spreading mosquito-borne viral infection dengue fever. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that as many as 100 million cases of humans infected with illness and can in certain instances be fatal occur annually in more than 100 tropical and sub-tropical countries. The British company behind the project, Oxitec, is focusing initially on dengue fever, given that the particular virus which causes it is only carried by one sub-species of mosquito. This makes the illness easier to target than malaria, for instance, which is carried by many different types of mosquitoes. Caribbean in 2009, much to the surprise of the international community and environmental advocates, many of whom are opposed to genetic engineering in any of its forms due to the unknown and unintended side effects that unleashing transgenic organisms into the world could cause. In Brazil, where the largest experiments have been carried out to date, the government is backing a new facility designed to breed millions of genetically engineered mosquitoes to help keep dengue fever at bay. Dengue fever isnt considered to be a big problem in the U.S. as yet. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that most of the dengue fever cases showing up in the continental U.S. are among those who have travelled to sub-tropical and tropical areas of the world. Still, WHO reports that the incidence of dengue fever in the U.S. has increased some thirty-fold over the last half century. A proposal by Oxitec to test its transgenic mosquitoes in the Florida Keys has some locals upset. In April 2012, the town of Key West passed an ordinance prohibiting the release of the mosquitoes pending further testing on possible implications for the environment. In the meantime, Oxitec has applied to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a patent on their mosquito and permission to release them in the U.S. Some 80,000 people have signed onto a cam paign on the Change.org website calling on the FDA to deny Oxitecs application. Mila de Mier, the Key West mother who launched the campaign, is concerned about the potential consequences of releasing an experimental organism on a delicate ecosystem. Oxitecs business goal is to sell genetically Mier. weve already said we dont want these looks at the potential long-term impacts.

The permits were part of a group approved by the South Florida Water Management District with scarce public notice and participation. Audubon is seeking a denial of the permits based on the failure to include additional on-farm cleanup requirements. Audubon has long urged the water management district to impose additional cleanup requirements for the most pollut ing farms in the EAA. State law requires that farms engage in phosphorus-reducing practices before discharging polluted water into the water management districts canals. Failure to clean up water on the farm harms the natural Everglades and places additional burdens and costs on the public and taxpayers to build treatment projects. A recently announced agreement between the state and federal government will spend $800 million to meet water quality standards by 2025. That agreement, require improved efforts to control on-farm pollution. Everglades water quality goals can be met more quickly and at less cost to the public if the District adhered to state law and required operators of the dirtiest farms to implement additional cleanup measures to reduce the amount of phosphorus leaving Florida law provides that the South Florida Water Management District must require additional cleanup steps by individual farms that cause or contribute to water quality violations of the 10 part per billion phosphorus standard. Audubons permit challenge contends that the agency has simply ignored this requirement in state law. Prior to 2007, EAA farmers could comply with the law by reducing phosphorus pollution by 25% across the 700,000 acre EAA. This approach has achieved an average annual reduction of 55%, and some years the reductions are higher. Audubon applauds those farms that have made a sincere effort to reduce phosphorus pollution to acceptable standards. However, farms, some discharging 400 parts per billion or more of phosphorous, are still not being required to limit their pollution and the Everglades water quality standards are still not being met. Audubon is challenging these permits to seek a ruling directing the agency to comply with the law that requires more pollution reduction by the farms discharg

OBITUARIES Honor your loved ones by making their memory part of our best efforts to defeat cancer. For more information, contact the American Cancer Society.WHA T BETTER TRIBUTE CAN THERE BE?EAST GADSDEN UNIT P.O. Box 563, Quincy 32353 Life is good, or at least we would like to think so, and if life is good then we all want a bit more of it. The wish for a longer life is coming true for many of us, as we are living longer and we are living better. With modern medical care, diseases are being cured and medical conditions are being controlled, therefore lives are being saved. With disease there is hope. Hope that the cancer can be cured, hope that the blood pressure can be controlled and hope that a stroke can be reversed. Hope gives us strength and positive feelings. It bonds families together in the hope that our own life or the life of someone we love will be prolonged. New medications, medical procedures and technol ogy give us hope and the reality of living longer lives. So, life is good but it isnt forever. No matter how good medicines are for us, no matter what surgeries can be devel oped and no matter what diseases can be cured, life, at least on this earth, will come to an end for all of us. About 10% of deaths in this country are called sudden deaths. They are utes or hours. That means that about 90% of the deaths in this country occur over time. That time is usually measured in weeks or months. We know that some medical conditions and diseases, even when they are controlled, progress slowly. So, oftentimes, even though we live with hope, we know in our heart that the end of life is coming. More and more folks are coming to realize that hospice care at the end of life relieves pain, nausea, fear, anxiety, and other symptoms associated with the end of life. Hospice care can comfort families. Covenant Hospice specializes in end of life care to make every day as good as it can be. How would a person get hospice care? Who can make the referral? Only the family doctor? Some people nearing the end of their life dont even have a personal doctor. The answer is clear and easy. Anyone can contact Covenant Hospice about a person who may need their care. Although Medicare has strict rules about physicians ordering hospice care, the referral to Covenant anyone. Anyone in this case includes loving family members, friends, church members, professionals such as nurses, pharmacists, other physicians and even the patient them selves. If there is a need for special care at the end of life, then anyone can help that patient by making a referral to Covenant Hospice.Who can make a hospice referral?

The middle and high school students arrived Sunday, July 22 for the Ambition Aviation in Residence (AIR) program. Ambition AIR couples multi-sensory media and simulation technologies with dynamic teaching methods using game-play combined with the thrill and technology. Multinational telecommunications corporation AT&T, the Department of Children and Families and Floridas Foundation teamed up to help the foster youth gain a new perspective on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) so they can excel in traditional studies and begin preparing for work later in life. AT&Ts generous contribution of $25,000 through Floridas Foundation covered the cost of 20 camp scholarships, along with a $50 VISA gift card for each camper for mementos and transportation costs. These children deserve every opportunity to have summer camp experiences just like other youth, DCF Secretary David Wilkins said. AT&Ts commitment to sending them to such a cutting-edge educational excommitment to create promising futures for our children in foster care. AT&T and the AT&T Foundation have a long history of corporate philanthropy, supporting programs and projects that create learning opportunities, promote academic and economic achievement and address community needs. Their contribution for Floridas youth in foster care is a continuance of their longtime commitment to education and STEM in the state. We at AT&T appreciate the ability to give back in this innovative way that really inspires children in our own community, said Marshall Criser III, AT&T Florida President. We are pleased to be able to partner with the Department of Children and Families and the National Flight Academy to give these children a fun, educational and motivating experiexperience combines the love of gameplaying with a STEM curriculum. On board Ambitions 100,000 square feet of virtual play, campers plunge into an exciting mission with squadrons competing to successfully complete a task using both STEM skills and life skills, such as critical thinking, teamwork, problem-solving and communication, in order to have a successful mission. Ambition is creating a new generation of smart kids and leaders and with the generous support of organizations like AT&T, Floridas Foundation and the Department of Children and Families, we are accessible to all kids, said retired Navy Vice Admiral Gerry Hoewing, President of the National Flight Academy, the parent organization for Ambition. The AT&T-sponsored camp is one of more than a dozen statewide Camps for Champions (www.campsforchampions.com) this year. The summer camps offered mentoring, team-building and leadership opportunities for more than 1,000 children in foster care and helped the youth build self-esteem, strengthen life skills. AT&T joins hundreds of other Florida businesses as Partners for Promise with the Department of Children and Families. For more information or to become involved, please visit www.

AUGUST 1, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 31 Dear Friends, I am Scott Phillips and I would like your vote for County Commissioner District 5 on August 14th. I am 36 years old and have been married to Angel Evans Phillips for almost 14 years. We have two children, Allie (5 years old) and Nathan (3 years old). I am currently employed by Perdue Farms Inc. as their Environmental manager for the Florida and Alabama operations. While I have personally vowed not to make political promises about what I will do, I can make you an assurance of who I am. I am a man committed to my faith, my family, and my community. Any decision I make will be considered in light of those commitments. I believe in the importance of seeking wise counsel. I believe we are all charged with the responsibility of being good stewards of our resources. I believe Liberty County can be an even better place to live, work, and raise our families. I hold multiple State Licenses including that of Water Treatment Operator, Wastewater Treatment Operator, Water Well Contractor, Storm Water Inspector and I hold a valid Class A Commercial Drivers License. Ive been fortunate to establish positive relationships with key people in agencies such as Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), Water Management District (WMD), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Florida Department of Health (FDOH), Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Farm Service Agency (FSA), Institute of Food and Agricultural Services (IFAS), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Rural Development (RD). Combining respectful relationships and resources has helped the small counties Ive worked with accomplish much larger goals than we could have ever done alone. I believe my experience working with rural counties throughout the state in securing and managing funds for important projects, providing hands-on technical assistance and addressing regulatory concerns makes me the most quali SCOTT PHILLI PS County Commissioner, District 5Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.

Jessica described the gunman as a muscular black male, about six feet tall. He wore a greyish-green zip up hoodie, with the top pulled over a cap that had a couple of stickers on the underside of its bill. A black bandana was tied just over the bridge of his nose. The thing that struck me was his eyes. He had very distinctive eyes and eyebrows, she said, realizing there was something familiar about him. When she talked with investigators one of the men thought they recognized the suspect from the surveillance camera. They checked the company sales records and found the suspect listed there. We were able to go directly to his name and pull up a picture, said Jessica. In one of their photos made during a previous transaction, he was wearing the same of the bill. She was stunned to know that the man who pointed a handgun at her and threatened to kill her was a regular customer at the recycling yard and had been in Monday to sell a small amount of scrap metal. This man always came in smiling, bright and happy, she said. He was always really sweet and kind and made conversation. She added, You never know who you can trust.

Page 32 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 1, 2012 Youngsters learn a skill & sew their Nine young girls learned the basics of making their own clothing and completed several other projects during a two-day 4-H Sewing Camp last week at Veterans Memorial Civic Center in Bristol. Community volunteers joined Liberty ica Brinkley to teach a skill that once was a part of everyday life for previous generations. If todays youth are not taught, sewing will become a lost art, said Brinkley, who enjoys sharing her expertise with her students. The girls completed a simple dress using a commercial pattern. They learned how to operate a sewing machine, cut out material using a pattern and stitched it into a dress. The task challenged them to read and follow directions and to work with a ruler and measuring tape. Some even got experience using the seam ripper. All were very pleased with Four-H Program Assistant Cathia Schmarje shared her talent for embroidery with the group, with each student completing an embroidery sampler. This gave them experience using a needle and thread as well as following directions. In addition to their dresses and embroidered samplers, the girls also tie dyed a t-shirt and stitched neck coolers and headbands. Next week is the last Liberty County more information, please call the Liberty SEWING CAMP LEFT: Volunteer SUMMER BEACH SAFARI What is that dark green or brown stuff all over the beach? The material, usually in a line where the waves roll in, is known as beach wrack. on wrack, you may think it is only dried, dying seaweed. But it is very are essential to beach life and the creatures that live there. Marine organisms that wash up with this wrack are an important part of a beach ecosystem. Tiny crabs, sea cucumbers, seeds and pods are only a Once, while walking the shore at Bahia Honda State Park in the Florida Keys, I found a brown hamburger bean. Thats right, a hamburger bean! It is circular in shape, like a marble, with a thick brown or black line that goes around its center. On each side of the thick line the color is a lighter brown, making it look like a hamburger bun. These little beans are from tropical rain forests and are native to the West Indies and western Africa. Can you believe the things we find on Florida beaches travel that far? Another neat little treasure I found in beach wrack was on St. Augustine Beach just a few weeks ago. While pushing my toes through the wrack I spotted a purse crab. These crabs get their name because female purse crabs have a purse-like chamber for holding their eggs. The little crabs live in shallow, sandy environments like beaches and are often found washed ashore in wrack. Beach wrack eventually gets pushed high on shore because of the tides. When the tides grasses bring all sorts of life to the beach. As the grasses die, fungi and other organisms attract tiny species like beetles, beach hoppers, ghost crabs and more. These small insects and crabs and other shorebirds migrate thousands of miles a year and depend on wrack during their journey for food. Without wrack and the organisms that live in it, the birds can die. seeds and birds near beach wrack, but wrack is dunes are natural barriers against wind and water, and prevent erosion. They form when wrack starts to collect blowing sand. As sand and other plant material collect in the wrack, the plant material can start to sprout and root. This continual process is how dunes form. So now you know that beach wrack isnt just icky seaweed that sits on the shore; it is a beautiful ecosystem important to the beach and beach life, curiosity. Have fun searching the wrack! by Jessica Basham Not only can you find neat sea critters, shells, seeds and birds near beach wrack, but wrack is also dunes.

On Monday, environmental groups sued the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for what they say are repeated viola tions of water protection laws on the Caloosahatchee River. The groups want the Corps to release water from Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee to maintain the health of the waterway. Manley Fuller is president of the Florida Wildlife Federation, one of the groups Were not talking about massive amounts of water here. Were talk ing about something that would just have a minute effect on any other user. We dont think that this will hurt anybody. The water from Lake Okeechobee is used to irrigate 500,000 acres of plenty of water, both for the river and agriculture. The Caloosahatchee has multiple environmental problems, including a slimy green algae that is reportedly causing health problems for the people living on the river and the wildlife that inhabits the waters. There have been multiple unsuccessful requests to the Corps to release water into the Caloosahatchee. At the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, a second plaintiff group, President Andrew McElwaine says neglecting the river affects more than just wildlife. There has been a tendency to neglect the water needs of nature to the preferment of human needs, but that ignores the fact that nature is what really is so important to the economy of the region. The Caloosahatchee is ofdrinking-water source, although a drinking water plant in Lee County has repeatedly had to shut to drink.

Many have followed her journey online as she struggled to maintain her health. DANIEL WILLIAMS PHOTOS GETTIngNG InN conCONDITIonONby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA Bristol woman who went into work a few minutes early Tuesday morning found herself at the mercy of a gun-wielding man who threatened to kill her if she didnt hand over money he believed was being kept in the scale house at Whitfields Recycling in Quincy. I really dont know how I lived through that, said Jessica Eberly, 22. I knew he was going to shoot me if I didnt give him something. But other than a $29 in change, she said there was nothing to give him. The business has a procedure in place to keep cash from being left in the building overnight. I told him, Sir, theres no money in here. He didnt believe her. He said I was a liar, pulled the hammer on the gun and threatened to shoot me, she said. I went into survival mode. All I could think of was what to do to get him out without hurting me. She got a key and opened the register, which had only a small amount of change. She opened the cabinet and pulled out all the desk drawers so he could see for himself. He spotted a bank bag change. She took it out and threw it at his feet and told him, Im not lying. Theres no cash in this building! She pleaded with him, Please dont kill me. Take my wallet. She remembered thinking, This cant be how Im going to die. The man, who had been cursing at her, making threats and waving the gun, suddenly got quiet. Something spooked him, she said, speculating that he might have heard a car driving near the business on Blue Star Highway. He bent down, picked up the bag of change and ran out. I walked to the door to be sure I was safe, she said, fearful that he might turn around and come back to kill her. She stepped out as two other employees were driving up. They saw her emerge from the scale house, doubled over and holding her stomach, and realized something was wrong. One employee jumped out of the car and ran to check the back of the business while the other drove off to look for the suspect. Business owner Robert Manspeaker said the recycling business is next to a small car lot. It appears the suspect climbed up on a vehicle and jumped the fence onto his property. He knocked off the outside surveillance cameras and then hid in a port-a-potty next to the scale house, he said.

Until her death Monday afternoon, Ramsey A heart defect was discovered when she was only two weeks old. Just before she was much that she had a fairly active life and as a teenager, enjoyed cheerleading, dance classes and participating in the LCHS marching band. A leak was discovered in a heart value in 2006, requiring another bypass. Three years later, doctors discovered she had pulmonary hypertension and congestive heart failure. She was put on an organ waiting list in 2009. In September 2010, she underwent a heart transplant and enjoyed a quick recovery. She was back home in Bristol six weeks after the surgery at Shands. Her future looked bright. In July 2012, she learned she was in organ rejection and was put on different medications in an attempt to keep her heart working in her body. She shared that news on her Facebook page July 11, writing: I am in heart rejection. So back up to 100 mg of Prednisone I go....Also increasing anti-rejection med. She added, Please pray this all works and that rejection will be gone at biopsy Aug. 15. A long list of friends and family responded to her post, offering their prayers and giving her words of encouragement. She was looking forward to being in Orlando this week with her mother, Teresa Hamlin, and her younger brother. She had rested up and monitored her health with care to get ready for the trip. On Saturday, she posted pictures of herself, her mom and her brother enjoying a meal at Joes Crab Shack in Orlando. But Monday, there was an alarming note on her Facebook wall.

If you believe the U.S. should engage in another Middle East war, then elect Mitt Romney as president. Romney and his Neocon friends are beating the war drums to join Israel in a unilateral strike on Iran. Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham both want the U.S. to get involved in the civil war in Syria. Help the Syrian rebels overthrow the Assad government. This is a case of be careful for what you wish for because, other than overthrowing the Assad government, it isnt a certainty that the rebels would be friendly to the U.S. I would hope that the American people would be skeptical of the Republican war drumming, particularly after America was scammed by the George Bush administration as to the reasons for invading Iraq. Fool me once No doubt that Iran is involved in the Syrian fray. No doubt that Russia and China are protecting Iran and the status quo in the Middle East which begs the question, what should the U.S. do about it? If you ask Romney, the Neocons and the John McCains, the answer is that the U.S. should go over there and teach those foreigners a lesson. But, Romney, the Neocons and the John McCains arent rights in other countries is a mainstay of the Neocon argument for invading other countries. What does it say about Americas human rights when the American government sends Americas youth on a fools errand to be killed or maimed, all in the name of protecting human rights in countries half way round the world. Romney is a neophyte in foreign policy and international ry, but at least he was in the Senate and exposed to the Iraq war to end the war. He did. He followed the George Bush/Iraqi plan for ending the Iraq war. Much to the consternation of the Neocons, he announced a date to end U.S. involvement in Afghanistan. battle to the enemy. The U.S. drone program has wacked a recognized the need for additional forces in Afghanistan and added 30,000 troops to the mix. Romneys Israeli ace in the hole is that he and Israels ton Consulting Group many years back. They are buddies. Netanyahu is a strong, opinionated person and Romney, who bends with the political winds, will be like silly putty in Netanyahus hands. In my view, Israel will become the 51st state in a Romney presidency. But its not just the threat of the Iranians getting the bomb that has the Neocons jacked out of shape. Those pesky Chinese are claiming all of the South China Sea as theirs which includes the Spratly Islands. The South China Sea is about 425,000 square kilometers stretching south from Taiwan to everywhere But China isnt alone in their South Taiwan and Malaysia beg to differ. These countries also claim an ownership interest in the hundreds of islands that comprise the Spratly Islands. The U.S. is concerned with Chinas obvious effort to assert regional control and with Irans effort to develop nuclear weapons, what should the U.S. do about the dust up over the Spratleys? Should the U.S. go to war over some islands of which 99.9% of Americans have no clue as to their location or the regional issues involved? China Americas economic and security interest in Southeast and a trading partner. nated the ten-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) of which the U.S. is a partner. The ASEAN group provides a bulwark against Chinas efforts to expand their inU.S., the ASEAN nations and China a forum to discuss issues of mutual interest. Conversely, Romney says he is going to be tough on China. parently not in Romneys lexicon, but at some point, the bad guys call your bluff. Its put up or shut up time. So, another U.S. war? If Romney and the Neocons want to police the world, then Also, bring back the draft with no deferments. Everyone or be killed. No deferments for going to Harvard or anything else. If you are eighteen, a warm body, standing up, then you are in the Army. A war tax and drafting all of Americas youth will end the Neocon drumbeat for war. Americans love a war but not enough to pay for it. When the Neocons, the elite, the 1%, the job creators, senators, representatives and movers and shakers realize that their kids or grandkids are going to get an allexpense paid trip to a rock pile in the Middle East to defend Americas values, then Americas foreign policy will get a major overhaul. When anyone, whether it be a Neocon, politician or rightwing nut job, suggest that America go to war to promote American values, protect human rights or overthrow disliked despotic rulers, that person should have to spend an entire day eyes. If that doesnt convince war lovers that war isnt glamorous, then they should spend a day with a veteran with a traumatic brain injury. Ill say it again. War is a dirty, dangerous business. We kill them. They kill us. Been there, done that.

AUGUST 1, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift CChina and the coming crashWASHINGTON China reported 7.6 percent per annum growth in the second quarter of 2012, down from over eight past years when double-digit growth rates were the norm. Chinas growth rate is still more than three times what the United States and other Western economies are experiencing, so its premature to get out the crying towels. Its not too soon to weigh the impact of Chinas slowing economy on China and on the U.S. Now the worlds second largest economy, after overtaking Japan last year, Chinas meteoric rise in wealth and productivity has been the envy of the world. Its booming economy has moved millions of people out of poverty in a record amount of time, but there are signs now that China is pulling back and retrenching, that a steeper fall could be ahead, with an impact that reaches far beyond its borders. Anyone who has visited China in the last several years comes home amazed at the level of construction, how the government can build anything it wants without worrying about how much it costs. If the economy shrinks, one spending. The government recently undertook an ambitious program to build aircraft carriers, which are expensive and vulnerable to attack and which appear to be more of a status symbol for the Chinese than a serious component of their national security. The U.S. would be happy if China reduced its military expenditures. Disputes in the South China Sea over sovereignty might be more easily resolved if China had both U.S. allies, are challenging Chinas sovereignty in those waters. On the U.S. home front, Chinas economic woes could hurt consumers. Think about it; Walmart for all intent and purposes functions like a Chinese distributor. Almost everything sold at Walmart is made in China. And thats true in higher-end stores as well; check the labels; made in China is everywhere. If China is hit with a slowdown, theyll have to make it up somewhere and the likelihood is that prices of Chinese goods in U.S. stores will go up. Much of the media commentary these days is focused on Europe and what happens in Spain, and in Greece and how the Germans are coping with Moodys downgrade of their economy from its Triple-A rating. The fate of the Euro, whether it is downgraded or even eliminated, is important but could have less immediate impact in the U.S. than what happens to the Chinese currency. Mitt Romney is trying to make China an issue in the presidential race, saying he wont let its government continue to get away with currency manipulation that prices its that is a drag on the U.S. economy. How Romney would alter Chinas behavior he doesnt say and besides, it may not be necessary. If the Chinese economy falters, the government will have no choice but to raise taxes and then the Chinese currency is going to rise on its own. The best analogy is to think of the currency as though it were water behind a dam. Eventually, the pressure will be so great to let the currency rise, there will be no holding it back. Its not only Romney whos faulting China. In testimony before Congress last week, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke sought to place some of the blame for the sluggish recovery worldwide on Chinas currency policy, saying it is blocking what might be a more normal recovery process in the global economy. Bernanke would do better looking closer to home for a solution than counting on the Chinese to change their behavior before they have to.

Last year, the Bureau of Unclaimed Property approved nearly 300,000 claims to reunite Floridians with their unclaimed property. During these challenging economic times, I am proud that our Bureau of Unclaimed Property has been successful in reuniting a record number of Floridians with their unclaimed cash and property, CFO Atwater said. Through their diligent, proactive efforts, weve been able to get more money back in the pockets of hard working Floridians, where it belongs. Currently, the bureau holds unclaimed property accounts valued at more than $1 billion, mostly from dormant accounts in ance and utility companies, securities and trust holdings. In addition to money and securities, unclaimed property includes tangible property such as watches, jewelry, coins, currency, stamps, historical items and other miscellaneous articles from abandoned safe deposit boxes. During Jeff Atwaters tenure as CFO, the department has returned record amounts to Floridiansmore than $323.6 million since January 2011. Since the programs inception 50 years ago, the Bureau of Unclaimed Property has suc cessfully returned $1.9 billion to Floridians.

She invites Floridians to suggest slogans that may be used to raise awareness by submitting concepts via MyFloridaLegal.com by Aug.10 at 5 p.m. Raising awareness about the dangers of abusing prescription drugs while pregnant is a crucial component of preventing neonatal abstinence syndrome, stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. I encourage Floridians to submit ideas for slogans that will ultimately help promote healthy outcomes for mothers and their children. In hospitals across our state, babies are born suffering from neonatal abstinence syndrome, which is a collection of problems that occur in newborns that have been exposed to addictive drugs while in the womb. Symptoms include: fever, seizures, blotchy skin, incessant shrill cries, respiratory problems and extreme sensitivity to sounds and light. Bondi chairs the Statewide Task Force on Prescription Drug Abuse and Newborns which is charged with examining the scope of the problem of prescription drug abuse by expectant mothers, the costs associated with caring for babies with neonatal abstinence syndrome, the long-term effects of the syndrome and prevention strategies.

Rally Sunday, August 5 at 6 p.m. (CT) with Greg Laurie. Greg Laurie is the pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship (one of Americas largest churches) in Riverside, CA. He is the author of over 30 books, including the Gold Medallion Award winner, The Upside-Down Church, as well as Are We Living in the Last Days and Im Going on a Diet Tomorrow and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves You can New Believers Bible and The Seekers Bible. Host of the Harvest: Greg Laurie television program and the nationally syndicated radio program A New Beginning, Greg Laurie is also founder and featured speaker for Harvest Crusades contemporary, large-scale evangelistic outreaches, which local churches organize nationally and internationally. A thousand points of light: Its a phrase we as Americans have come to understand as expressing the notion that a greater goal, a greater light, can be achieved as everyone shines from their respective place on the map. Peggy Noonan most famously employed it in a speech she wrote for former president George H. W. Bush. But its origin is most likely derived from C.S. Lewis, who in his book The Magicians Nephew wrote, One moment there had been nothing but darkness; next moment a thousand, thousand points of light leaped out There may be no better use for the term than associating it with Harvest America! As of this week, there will be 1,000 host sites dotting the national landscape that have agreed to become points of light in presenting the gospel on August 26. Carr Chapel in Clarksville on NW SR 73 will one of those points of Lights here in Calhoun County. Harvest America wasnt undertaken solely to save America. Our mission is to proclaim the gospel, to be a light that shines in darkness, to provide a message of hope to those who are without God and without hope in this present world. But the outcome of presenting the gospel will be transforming. Lives will be changed. Hope will be restored in the lives of thousands. And because of this, America will be a better place. America wasnt established under the rule of a sovereign king or queen passed down from generational bloodlines. Our forefathers anticipated and imagined a government where its citizens and its leaders willingly submitted to the One True King. For most of our founding fathers, that guiding light was Jesus Christ. While Harvest America most likely wont change our political discourse or alter the course of our nation, every point of light, every venue from which the light of the gospel shines forth August 26, will bring change. There will be more than a thousand sites where Americans will submit their lives to Christ. Collectively, we will impact our nation.

Dedicated Honest Fair Experienced Friendly HardworkingBeginning Aug. 1, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Katheleen Sebelius announced that 47 million women are getting greater control over their health care and access to eight new prevention-related health care services without paying more out of their own pocket. Previously some insurance companies did not cover these preventive services for women at all under their health plans, while some women had to pay deductibles or co-pays for the care they needed to stay healthy. The new rules in the health care law requiring coverage of these services take effect at the next renewal date on or after Aug. 1for most health insurance plans. women will have access to even more life-saving preventive care free of charge. According to a new HHS report also released today, approximately 47 million women are in health plans that must cover these new pre ventive services at no charge. Women, not insur ance companies, can now make health decisions that will keep them healthy, catch potentially serious conditions at an earlier state and protect them and their families from crushing medical bills. President Obama is moving our country forward by giving women control over their health care, Secretary Sebelius said. This law puts women and their doctors, not insurance companies or the government, in charge of health care decisions. The eight new prevention-related services are: tes screening that helps protect pregnant women from one of the most serious pregnancy-related diseases. personal violence screening and counseling. traceptive methods and contraceptive education and counseling. port, supplies and counseling. women 30 or older. infections counseling for sexually-active women. counseling for sexuallyactive women. The health care law has already helped women in private plans and Medicare for the first time gain access to potentially life-saving tests and services, such as mammograms, cholesterol without coinsurance or deductibles. The announcement generally requiring insur ance companies to offer, with no co-pay, additional vital screenings and tests to help keep women healthy throughout their lives. These services are based on recommendaof Medicine, which relied on independent physicians, nurses, scientists and other experts as well as evidence-based research to develop its recommendations. These preventive services will be offered without cost sharing beginning today in all new health plans. and issuers that have maintained grandfathered status are not required to addition, certain nonprofit religious organizations, such as churches and schools, are not required to cover these services. The Obama administration will continue to work with all employers to and resources they need to implement the health care law in a way that protects womens health while making commonsense accommodations for values like religious liberty. For women who are pregnant or nursing, the new preventive services include gestational diabetes screening as well as breast-feeding support, counseling and supplies. Health services already provided under the health care law include folic acid supplements for women who may become pregnant, Hepatitis B screening for pregnant women and anemia screening for pregnant women. Women Medicare beneficiaries may already receive such preventive services as annual wellness visits, mammograms and bone mass measurement for those at risk of osteoporosis and diabetes screening. Approximately 24.7 million women with Medicare used at least one free preventive service in 2011, including the new annual wellness visit. Because of the Affordable Care Act, secure, affordable coverage is becoming a reality for millions of American women and families. Men and children are also able to take advantage of preventive ser vices at no extra charge under the health care law.

Boggs (Tauchulunah), son of Polly Parrot, was born in towns were settled. His mother was Polly Parrot, the daughter of Tuskie Hajo/ Cochrane and his bought wife, Polly. Tuskie Hajo is listed on the Creek Census taken between November 1831 and December 1833, but he died in 1833 before the removal of most of Creek people to Texas under Tuskie Hajo/ Davey and John Blount. The Apalachicola Band in Florida was formally created as a political unit by the treaty of Camp Moultrie, which was signed in 1823. One of the signers was Tuskie Hajo/ Cochrane. At the signing of the Treaty of Camp Moultrie, Tuske Hajo was already living at Cochranetown; this treaty established the reservation in Blountstown where Cochranetown and Blountstown were located. Polly Parrot decided that she would not go to Texas under the new Tuskie Hajo Davey and she remained in lated spot in which the clan would stay, Polly Parrot being a determined woman. The runners returned, reported and Polly decided on a place now located on the Jackson County and Calhoun County line as a place to settle. It has high hills and it came to be known as Boggs Bond or the Boggs Indian Refuge lands. You can go in any direction from Boggs Pond and be closer to civilization than you are at Boggs Pond. It was desolate and beautiful. Cattle ran loose in the woods and in those days the Creeks began to run cattle. All working together, they took the black fertile soil from Boggs Pond and spread it on top of the sandy land. John Boggs and his wife, Mary Musgrove lived with the other members of the community by small scale farming and the running of cattle. John and Mary had two sons and several daughters. They lived the Indian way, without being troubled with the white people. The Creek community at Boggs Pond had approximately 19 family units at its height. The great-grandfather of Dr. Andrew Boggs Ramsey was John James William Joseph Boggs, Tuskie Hajo/ Boggs (full blooded). He married Sarah E. Smith, an Indian woman living in Ocheese and they continued to live in a completely Indian way until their later years when the white population in the area began to increase. Sarah, having a told her son, James Daniel Boggs, that the days of their way of life was numbered. She told him he must go away and learn the ways of the white man. She said, Get out, get a job and learn, so that we may live as the whites. She realized that the non Indian population was increasing in number and the isolation for the Indian People could not last much longer. To survive, James Daniel Boggs, listened to his mother and grandmother, Mary Musgrove Chipola River. He saved all of his money as his mother and grandmother advised and opened a trading post in Blountstown. It became the largest general store in the area. James D. Boggs was lighter in color than his sisters and easily passed for white. Therefore, he was able to sell not only to Indian People, but to the non Indian population. James met a Creek Indian girl, a descendent of Nancy Knight. At 15, Alice McClellan married James Daniel Boggs. Alice McClellan was a Creek Indian who lived in Florida before it became a state and was British West Florida. Elijah Ward was the son of Nancy Knight (Nahakv) and Elijahs wife, Sarah Cochrane, was reported to have been kin to Tuskie Hajo/ Cochrane. Their daugher, Gabriella Ward married John B. Meigs, he was the youngest son of Josiah of Georgia. Josiah Meigs was also a commissioner Government in 1819 acting on claims west of the Pearl River. Alice McClellans fathers mother was Samatha Mixon, whose mother, Hodchee, was from Georgia. Tuskie Hajo/ James Daniel Boggs, followed the Creek custom of living with his wifes people who were residing in Blountstown. This Blountstown area and away from Boggs Pond. The Piggly Wiggly Supermarket established by James A. Ramsey (Harjo) and his wife, Kathleen Boggs, daughter of James D. and Alice Boggs, was in the same building as her fathers General Store. The Creeks have survived in the homeland, kept some of the Creek traditions and many speak some of the Creek language. We still associate with other Creek Indian families in the area who are descendents of the Pippens, Lintons, Sheltons, Montfords, Hill, Neals, McGhees and Andersons. The Apalachicolas are members of a state recognized Indian Tribe, The Florida Tribe of Eastern Creek Indians, along with our cousins, the Wards centered in Bruce. Though the Creeks lost much of their culture, they have endured and did not lose sight of their heritage. The descendants of Tuskie Hajo/ Cochrane living in Calhoun County have been joined during the last few years by descendants of Chief John Blount. The most notable is Mary Blount. The traditional Square Grounds for the North Florida (The Pine Arbor Trial Town) are located in the Blountstown area where Berry, Green Corn, Little Green Corn and the Harvest Busks are still observed by our people. One of the better Creek Indian Museums is located at the Calhoun County staffed by Mary Nell Bailey and Connie Palmer. These two Creek ladies are recognized world wide along with their mother, Estelle OBryan, for their designs made from pine straw. Creek schools are operated in Blountstown, Panama City, Bruce and Pensacola to keep the Creek language, heritage and history alive and used. The people are still here thanks to Polly Parrots determination. Her bravery is still the guiding light and inspiration to all Creek people living in the area. Polly Parrots legacy inspires her descendants JOURNEY STORIEsS The Panhandle Pioneer Settlement in Blountstown is featuring a special exhibit in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities Council Museum on Main Street. The exhibit, known as Journey Stories, is on view in the settlement clubhouse and will run from July 14 August 25, 2012. This is the only facility located in North Florida that has been selected for the exhibit. All other locations are in South Central and South Florida. The story shown here is one of many included in the exhibit. Submitted by Mae Belle Miles GranthamSamuel Henry Grantham was born December 25, 1875. He came to Calhoun County as a young man and settled in the Chipola area. He was a hardworking man, doing work in the woods dipping turpentine. He married Annie Belle Godwin Syfrett in 1929. Annie already had one son, Ed Hardy Syfrett, Mattie, Charles, Curtis, Harvey and Pauline. Samuel cut the logs and built a home near Victory Hill Church. They used an ox, Tobe, to help grow a garden while Samuel worked other jobs. He worked with the Works Progress Administration (WPA) helping to dig Lake Hilda in Blountstown. He would sometimes walk to work and them back home which was a distance used shovels and wheel barrows along with a machine called a pan pulled by mules or horses. Their salary was on 8 cents per hour. In 1939, Samuel got pneumonia and died leaving Annie to carry on with the raising of the family. Samuel is buried in the Mt. Olive Cemetery, north of Altha in Calhoun County, Florida. Annie went to work at the Shipyard in Panama City. She rode the bus called Maritime to get to work, where she was a task welder. Later on, she picked cotton. There were hard times for the family in the early 1940s. Annie died after a long bout with cancer when years old. This left the children as orphans since both parents had died. To keep the children together, Lee and Queenie Godwin, their mothers brother and his wife, took them into their home. During these growing up years, the children learned to do with very little. They have many memories of doing things just to get by. They talk of memories of their mom praying for them. Annie is buried in the Victory Hill Cemetery in the Chipola Community near where they lived. This is a good family which grew up under extreme hardships, but has contributed to their respective communities in a positive way.Samuel Henry Granthams hard working family

Page 26 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 1, 2012I couldnt believe my ears: genetically en gineered mosquitoes? Why on Earth would they be created? And I understand there are plans to release them into the wild? Marissa Abingdon, Sumter, SCYes its true, genetically engineered mosquitoes, which were bred in the lab to transmit a gene during the reproductive process that kills their offspring, have already been used on an experimental basis in three countriesthe Cayman Islands, Malaysia and Brazilto counteract the quickly spreading mosquito-borne viral infection dengue fever. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that as many as 100 million cases of humans infected with illness and can in certain instances be fatal occur annually in more than 100 tropical and sub-tropical countries. The British company behind the project, Oxitec, is focusing initially on dengue fever, given that the particular virus which causes it is only carried by one sub-species of mosquito. This makes the illness easier to target than malaria, for instance, which is carried by many different types of mosquitoes. Caribbean in 2009, much to the surprise of the international community and environmental advocates, many of whom are opposed to genetic engineering in any of its forms due to the unknown and unintended side effects that unleashing transgenic organisms into the world could cause. In Brazil, where the largest experiments have been carried out to date, the government is backing a new facility designed to breed millions of genetically engineered mosquitoes to help keep dengue fever at bay. Dengue fever isnt considered to be a big problem in the U.S. as yet. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that most of the dengue fever cases showing up in the continental U.S. are among those who have travelled to sub-tropical and tropical areas of the world. Still, WHO  reports that the incidence of dengue fever in the U.S. has increased some thirty-fold over the last half century. A proposal by Oxitec to test its transgenic mosquitoes in the Florida Keys has some locals upset. In April 2012, the town of Key West passed an ordinance prohibiting the release of the mosquitoes pending further testing on possible implications for the environment. In the meantime, Oxitec has applied to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a patent on their mosquito and permission to release them in the U.S. Some 80,000 people have signed onto a campaign on the Change.org website calling on the FDA to deny Oxitecs application. Mila de Mier, the Key West mother who launched the campaign, is concerned about the potential consequences of releasing an experimental organism on a delicate ecosystem. Oxitecs business goal is to sell genetically Mier. weve already said we dont want these looks at the potential long-term impacts.

The permits were part of a group approved by the South Florida Water Management District with scarce public notice and participation. Audubon is seeking a denial of the permits based on the failure to include additional on-farm cleanup requirements. Audubon has long urged the water management district to impose additional cleanup requirements for the most polluting farms in the EAA. State law requires that farms engage in phosphorus-reducing practices before discharging polluted water into the water management districts canals. Failure to clean up water on the farm harms the natural Everglades and places additional burdens and costs on the public and taxpayers to build treatment projects. A recently announced agreement between the state and federal government will spend $800 million to meet water quality standards by 2025. That agreement, require improved efforts to control on-farm pollution. Everglades water quality goals can be met more quickly and at less cost to the public if the District adhered to state law and required operators of the dirtiest farms to implement additional cleanup measures to reduce the amount of phosphorus leaving Florida law provides that the South Florida Water Management District must require additional cleanup steps by individual farms that cause or contribute to water quality violations of the 10 part per billion phosphorus standard. Audubons permit challenge contends that the agency has simply ignored this requirement in state law. Prior to 2007, EAA farmers could comply with the law by reducing phosphorus pollution by 25% across the 700,000 acre EAA. This approach has achieved an average annual reduction of 55%, and some years the reductions are higher. Audubon applauds those farms that have made a sincere effort to reduce phosphorus pollution to acceptable standards. However, farms, some discharging 400 parts per billion or more of phosphorous, are still not being required to limit their pollution and the Everglades water quality standards are still not being met. Audubon is challenging these permits to seek a ruling directing the agency to comply with the law that requires more pollution reduction by the farms discharg

Box 563, Quincy 32353 LLife is good, or at least we would like to think so, and if life is good then we all want a bit more of it. The wish for a longer life is coming true for many of us, as we are living longer and we are living better. With modern medical care, diseases are being cured and medical conditions are being controlled, therefore lives are being saved. With disease there is hope. Hope that the cancer can be cured, hope that the blood pressure can be controlled and hope that a stroke can be reversed. Hope gives us strength and positive feelings. I It bonds families together in the hope that our own life or the life of someone we love will be prolonged. N New medications, medical procedures and technology give us hope and the reality of living longer lives.S So, life is good but it isnt forever. N No matter how good medicines are for us, no matter what surgeries can be developed and no matter what diseases can be cured, life, at least on this earth, will come to an end for all of us. A About 10% of deaths in this country are called sudden deaths. They are utes or hours. That means that about 90% of the deaths in this country occur over time. That time is usually measured in weeks or months. We know that some medical conditions and diseases, even when they are controlled, progress slowly. S So, oftentimes, even though we live with hope, we know in our heart that the end of life is coming. More and more folks are coming to realize that hospice care at the end of life relieves pain, nausea, fear, anxiety, and other symptoms associated with the end of life. Hospice care can comfort families. Covenant Hospice specializes in end of life care to make every day as good as it can be. How would a person get hospice care? Who can make the referral? Only the family doctor? S Some people nearing the end of their life dont even have a personal doctor. The answer is clear and easy. A Anyone can contact Covenant Hospice about a person who may need their care. A Although Medicare has strict rules about physicians ordering hospice care, the referral to Covenant anyone.A Anyone in this case includes loving family members, friends, church members, professionals such as nurses, pharmacists, other physicians and even the patient themselves. I If there is a need for special care at the end of life, then anyone can help that patient by making a referral to Covenant Hospice.Who can make a hospice referral?

The middle and high school students arrived Sunday, July 22 for the Ambition Aviation in Residence (AIR) program. Ambition AIR couples multi-sensory media and simulation technologies with dynamic teaching methods using game-play combined with the thrill and technology. Multinational telecommunications corporation AT&T, the Department of Children and Families and Floridas Foundation teamed up to help the foster youth gain a new perspective on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) so they can excel in traditional studies and begin preparing for work later in life. AT&Ts generous contribution of $25,000 through Floridas Foundation covered the cost of 20 camp scholarships, along with a $50 VISA gift card for each camper for mementos and transportation costs. These children deserve every opportunity to have summer camp experiences just like other youth, DCF Secretary David Wilkins said. AT&Ts commitment to sending them to such a cutting-edge educational excommitment to create promising futures for our children in foster care. AT&T and the AT&T Foundation have a long history of corporate philanthropy, supporting programs and projects that create learning opportunities, promote academic and economic achievement and address community needs. Their contribution for Floridas youth in foster care is a continuance of their longtime commitment to education and STEM in the state. We at AT&T appreciate the ability to give back in this innovative way that really inspires children in our own community, said Marshall Criser III, AT&T Florida President. We are pleased to be able to partner with the Department of Children and Families and the National Flight Academy to give these children a fun, educational and motivating experiexperience combines the love of gameplaying with a STEM curriculum. On board Ambitions 100,000 square feet of virtual play, campers plunge into an exciting mission with squadrons competing to successfully complete a task using both STEM skills and life skills, such as critical thinking, teamwork, problem-solving and communication, in order to have a successful mission. Ambition is creating a new generation of smart kids and leaders and with the generous support of organizations like AT&T, Floridas Foundation and the Department of Children and Families, we are accessible to all kids, said retired Navy Vice Admiral Gerry Hoewing, President of the National Flight Academy, the parent organization for Ambition. The AT&T-sponsored camp is one of more than a dozen statewide Camps for Champions (www.campsforchampions.com) this year. The summer camps offered mentoring, team-building and leadership opportunities for more than 1,000 children in foster care and helped the youth build self-esteem, strengthen life skills. AT&T joins hundreds of other Florida businesses as Partners for Promise with the Department of Children and Families. For more information or to become involved, please visit www.

I am 36 years old and have been married to Angel Evans Phillips for almost 14 years. We have two children, Allie (5 years old) and Nathan (3 years old). I am currently employed by Perdue Farms Inc. as their Environmental manager for the Florida and Alabama operations. While I have personally vowed not to make political promises about what I will do, I can make you an assurance of who I am. I am a man committed to my faith, my family, and my community. Any decision I make will be considered in light of those commitments. I believe in the importance of seeking wise counsel. I believe we are all charged with the responsibility of being good stewards of our resources. I believe Liberty County can be an even better place to live, work, and raise our families. I hold multiple State Licenses including that of Water Treatment Operator, Wastewater Treatment Operator, Water Well Contractor, Storm Water Inspector and I hold a valid Class A Commercial Drivers License. Ive been fortunate to establish positive relationships with key people in agencies such as Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), Water Management District (WMD), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Florida Department of Health (FDOH), Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Farm Service Agency (FSA), Institute of Food and Agricultural Services (IFAS), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Rural Development (RD). Combining respectful relationships and resources has helped the small counties Ive worked with accomplish much larger goals than we could have ever done alone. I believe my experience working with rural counties throughout the state in securing and managing funds for important projects, providing hands-on technical assistance and addressing regulatory concerns makes me the most qualiSCOTT PHILLIps PS County Commissioner, District 5Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer.

Jessica described the gunman as a muscular black male, about six feet tall. He wore a greyish-green zip up hoodie, with the top pulled over a cap that had a couple of stickers on the underside of its bill. A black bandana was tied just over the bridge of his nose. The thing that struck me was his eyes. He had very distinctive eyes and eyebrows, she said, realizing there was something familiar about him. When she talked with investigators one of the men thought they recognized the suspect from the surveillance camera. They checked the company sales records and found the suspect listed there. We were able to go directly to his name and pull up a picture, said Jessica. In one of their photos made during a previous transaction, he was wearing the same of the bill. She was stunned to know that the man who pointed a handgun at her and threatened to kill her was a regular customer at the recycling yard and had been in Monday to sell a small amount of scrap metal. This man always came in smiling, bright and happy, she said. He was always really sweet and kind and made conversation. She added, You never know who you can trust.

Page 32 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 1, 2012 Youngsters learn a skill & sew their Nine young girls learned the basics of making their own clothing and completed several other projects during a two-day 4-H Sewing Camp last week at Veterans Memorial Civic Center in Bristol. Community volunteers joined Liberty ica Brinkley to teach a skill that once was a part of everyday life for previous generations. If todays youth are not taught, sewing will become a lost art, said Brinkley, who enjoys sharing her expertise with her students. The girls completed a simple dress using a commercial pattern. They learned how to operate a sewing machine, cut out material using a pattern and stitched it into a dress. The task challenged them to read and follow directions and to work with a ruler and measuring tape. Some even got experience using the seam ripper. All were very pleased with Four-H Program Assistant Cathia Schmarje shared her talent for embroidery with the group, with each student completing an embroidery sampler. This gave them experience using a needle and thread as well as following directions. In addition to their dresses and embroidered samplers, the girls also tie dyed a t-shirt and stitched neck coolers and headbands. Next week is the last Liberty County more information, please call the Liberty SEWING CAMP LEFT: Volunteer SUMMER BEACH sSAFARI What is that dark green or brown stuff all over the beach? The material, usually in a line where the waves roll in, is known as beach wrack. on wrack, you may think it is only dried, dying seaweed. But it is very are essential to beach life and the creatures that live there. Marine organisms that wash up with this wrack are an important part of a beach ecosystem. Tiny crabs, sea cucumbers, seeds and pods are only a Once, while walking the shore at Bahia Honda State Park in the Florida Keys, I found a brown hamburger bean. Thats right, a hamburger bean! It is circular in shape, like a marble, with a thick brown or black line that goes around its center. On each side of the thick line the color is a lighter brown, making it look like a hamburger bun. These little beans are from tropical rain forests and are native to the West Indies and western Africa. Can you believe the things we find on Florida beaches travel that far? Another neat little treasure I found in beach wrack was on St. Augustine Beach just a few weeks ago. While pushing my toes through the wrack I spotted a purse crab. These crabs get their name because female purse crabs have a purse-like chamber for holding their eggs. The little crabs live in shallow, sandy environments like beaches and are often found washed ashore in wrack. Beach wrack eventually gets pushed high on shore because of the tides. When the tides grasses bring all sorts of life to the beach. As the grasses die, fungi and other organisms attract tiny species like beetles, beach hoppers, ghost crabs and more. These small insects and crabs and other shorebirds migrate thousands of miles a year and depend on wrack during their journey for food. Without wrack and the organisms that live in it, the birds can die. seeds and birds near beach wrack, but wrack is dunes are natural barriers against wind and water, and prevent erosion. They form when wrack starts to collect blowing sand. As sand and other plant material collect in the wrack, the plant material can start to sprout and root. This continual process is how dunes form. So now you know that beach wrack isnt just icky seaweed that sits on the shore; it is a beautiful ecosystem important to the beach and beach life, curiosity. Have fun searching the wrack! by Jessica Basham Not only can you find neat sea critters, shells, seeds and birds near beach wrack, but wrack is also dunes.

This could prove a week to do some risk-taking and exploring new ideas. It could take a lot to raise your ire this week, Taurus. However, if your mood is already set to simmer, you may have a full-blown boiling over at the slightest taunt. It is easy to bury something and ignore it, Gemini, but its not always easy to face a problem head-on. Make an effort recurring in your life. Take a few moments to focus on your future, Cancer, rather than just what needs to be done in the present. Open your mind to real long-term goals. Arguments can quickly turn stressful, Leo. So try your best to avoid any confrontations this week and your body will thank you. Unresolved issues could pop up. You are overly focused on the minute details of the things you do, Virgo. But somehow the bigger picture has escaped your perusal lately. Remedy that this week. Your curiosity could get the best of you this week, Libra. You may end up delving into things that are better left unturned. Take a Dont set yourself up for frustration, Scorpio. Avoid any people who cause that bring you grief. Enjoy yourself instead. Sagittarius, although you didnt think things could get much busier, this week plate. Dont be overly concerned. There will be time to get things done. More enjoyable things are on the horizon, Capricorn, distracted by so many enjoyable activities. Try to schedule one per week. No one can solve your Aquarius. Although your options seem to be a little the way to impart changes. The planets are giving you the cosmic go-ahead to get things done, Pisces.

On Monday, environmental groups sued the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for what they say are repeated violations of water protection laws on the Caloosahatchee River. The groups want the Corps to release water from Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee to maintain the health of the waterway. Manley Fuller is president of the Florida Wildlife Federation, one of the groups Were not talking about massive amounts of water here. Were talking about something that would just have a minute effect on any other user. We dont think that this will hurt anybody. The water from Lake Okeechobee is used to irrigate 500,000 acres of plenty of water, both for the river and agriculture. The Caloosahatchee has multiple environmental problems, including a slimy green algae that is reportedly causing health problems for the people living on the river and the wildlife that inhabits the waters. There have been multiple unsuccessful requests to the Corps to release water into the Caloosahatchee. At the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, a second plaintiff group, President Andrew McElwaine says neglecting the river affects more than just wildlife. There has been a tendency to neglect the water needs of nature to the preferment of human needs, but that ignores the fact that nature is what really is so important to the economy of the region. The Caloosahatchee is ofdrinking-water source, although a drinking water plant in Lee County has repeatedly had to shut to drink. Glades, Hendry and Lee County public health departments have issued multiple warnings asking people to avoid contact with the river.
