AUGUST 8, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift GAFFE PATROLWASHINGTON The idea that a presidential candidate can burnish his foreign-policy credentials by traveling to three countries in six days is silly to begin with, but that was the premise of Governor Romneys recent trip to London, Israel and Poland. It was also about raising money. Romney held two fundraisers with Americans abroad in London and another in Israel, where just 45 donors at a high-dollar breakfast contrib uted over a million dollars to his campaign. Maybe the money made up for the negative headlines that followed Romney wherever he touched down. In London, his assessment of the city maybe not being ready for the Olympics became a major diplomatic snub. Romney had hoped to bask in the glow of the games and instead had to walk back his comments after British Prime Minister David Cameron said there was no comparison between staging a major event in a crowded cosmopolitan city as opposed to the middle of nowhere, a reference to the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City that Romney ran. Then it was on to Israel where Romney in his zeal to praise the economic miracle the Israelis have produced in the middle of the desert managed to insult the Palestinians by attributing third stop on Romneys tour, was gaffe-free until an aide lost his temper and cursed out reporters traveling with the cam paign for shouting out questions to the candidate. The aides behavior and subsequent apology dominated the Romney news out of Poland. Then theres the Romney horse, Rafalca, participating in the Olympian equestrian event known as dressage, which is horse dancing. Calling dressage the most hoity-toity activity one could imagine, conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer upper-class activity easily ridiculed that can doom a candidacy. Humorist Stephan Colbert corrected Krauthammer, saying, Its not hoity-toity; its Frou-Frou. These incidents examined individually dont amount to much, but taken together, they begin to build a narrative of a candidate prone to gaffes. And because Romney isnt providing much substance for reporters to write about and he rarely takes questions from the traveling press corps, gaffes become the story. Voters arent paying much attention during this summer period, but the Obama campaign isnt letting up. Theyre usinto their portrayal of him as an insensitive rich guy CEO whos tone deaf and cant be trusted to credibly represent his country abroad. Its doubtful any of the past weeks embarrassments will be remembered by Election Day, but they are symptoms of Romneys larger problem with the voters, that he doesnt come across as a real person. Polls show that the voters think Romney might do a better job in managing the economy, but they dont like him; they like President Obama. And that contrast is keeping Obama in the game despite the bad economy. Campaigning in Orlando Thursday, Obama made an impromptu stop at a Puerto Rican caf, ordered a pulled pork sandwich with rice and beans and posed for photographs with a group of kids. Those human moments provide the contrast that Obama is counting on to keep him competitive in swing states like Florida in the months ahead. Romney is a talented businessman, no question, but when it comes to diplomacy abroad and politics at home, he can be tone deaf. When a pattern emerges in the coverage of a candidate, it can be deadly. Just ask Al Gore, who was portrayed as a serial exaggerator after suggesting in a few ill-chosen words that he had invented the Internet. Every reporter out there now is on gaffe patrol when theyre following Romney and that isnt good news for a candidate already too buttonedup to relate to voters.

The USDA has recently issued new school meal requirements that will be effective beginning with the 2012-2013 school year. This means students in Liberty County Schools will see some changes in the foods served at school next school year. Chartwells School Dining Services manages the food service department for Liberty County School Board and has made strides in incorporating several positive initiatives that will allow for a smooth transition to the new meal requirements. One major adjustment for students required by the new meal pattern from USDA will be that their meal must include at least 1/2 cup of a fruit or vegetable in order to be considered a complete meal. Other changes, which are already in progress, include incorporating more whole grains, a limit on bread and protein servings, a reduction in fats and sodium, or salt. The change in legislation means an increase in food cost for each meal and an increase in transportation and fuel costs, which could result in meal price increases. Meal prices will be determined by Liberty County School Board and will be communicated accordingly. Both Chartwells and Liberty County School Board are dedicated to providing quality nutritious meals that students will enjoy and choose to eat. We hope you will encourage your students to try new fruits and vegetables and you will join us for a meal at school to see the changes for yourself. For more information about food and nutrition services, you may visit www.fns.usda.gov.Changes, which will also affect Calhoun County schools, include more grain, fruit and vegetables

Last year we moved Blountstown High School students to a new location on Highway 69 about a mile north of the library. Blountstown Middle School students moved into the old high school location on Main Street. The special program ofAg. building site on Pennington Avenue. The old middle school was deeded to the North Florida Child Development Center. county in head start and preschool programs, and there was an agreement to allow the Mayhaw Community to have space to be used for the African American community. We purchased three tracts of land in Altha and worked out an inter local agreement with the town of Altha that partnered with the school district to have everything in place as we apply for funding to build a new pre-k through eighth grade school on that property. We are in the process of spending $300,000 for upgrade construction at Carr School. Due to the hard work of school administrators, teachers and students we were the only school district in Florida to have all of our schools receive an A Grade in school grades. We are one of 11 school districts to be recognized as a high performing school district since school grades began in 1998. Our district received state and national recognition in many areas of student performance last year. We had a state championship in Boys Weightlifting. We sent 10 delegates to the National FCCLA Convention in Orlando. These FCCLA delegation had representa tion from Altha, Carr and Blountstown. We also have highly recognized school programs in such area as agriculture, music, FBLA and other program areas. We will have strong discipline areas of student conduct as mandated by state policy. We will enforce attendance, reasonable dress code, punitive actions against bullying, violence, drugs and distractions that take away from the learning environment and school safety. School grades are divided into two areas. Half of the school grade is based on test scores and the other half is based on how the district achieves programs that will provide our students with the demands of society to be highly successful and ready to face the challenges of tomorrow. The second part of the school grades formula is based on opportunities to take accelerated courses, be college ready and have high graduation rates from all of our student population areas. To be a more competitive district, we plan to offer Algebra to eighth grade students and maybe Biology as well at some point. We are making great strides through the STEM Program to have more competitive students in area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. We have brought the band program back in full swing at Blountstown high and middle school. We have started a cross country running program at Altha and Blountstown High School. There is a strong interest in wanting to involve middle school students also into that program. sponsible we have combined the duties of transportation one position with no salary increase. The special service director position has been absorbed by a number of other administrators. We have and one special assignment positions at the county level. district positions. In spite of over three million in budget cuts by the state we have maintained a strong reserve balance. We will strive to maintain a district that requires academic excellence and high administrative and teaching standards. We will strive to make our campuses drug and violence free and provide safe and secure campuses and challenge students, teachers and administrators to work together to keep us in the elite status of high performing school districts.

The camp is provided at no cost to the students. Twenty students from Jackson and Washington counties spent the camp week at Chipola, while the 14 students from Calhoun and Liberty counties visited locations in Bristol and Blountstown and Chipola College. Camp activities included pig heart and kidney dissection, blood-typing, medical terminology, and simulation lab experience. In the simulation lab at Chipola, students were able to learn many skills practiced by nursing, EMT, and paramedic students. Students were provided with an overview of several health careers in order to understand the entire health care team. Jackson Hospital provided a tour of their facility and an opportunity for a day of shadowing in various departments. Students also received a seven-hour ACT review information on the physical effects and dangers of many current drug trends. Calhoun and Liberty campers spent the afternoon in the DMD in Bristol. Campers learned about dental care and hygiene and were able to experience hands on dental activities. Calhoun Liberty Hospital also provided students with the opportunity to tour their facility and shadow health professionals. A highlight of the camp was a road trip to Tallahassee during which the students toured the FSU College of Medicine and had an opportunity to interact with current medical students. The medical students taught campers skills training in the simulation lab to learn heart and lung sounds and vital signs. Big Bend AHEC has sponsored similar camps for serves a 14 county area and provides health education services and tobacco cessation and prevention programs. AHEC also helps recruit health professionals to rural areas. Camp Director, Brigitta Nuccio, says, Our hope is that we will help students get the experience they need to know if a health career is right for them and that they will return to rural areas to practice. Nuccio attended the camp her self in 1995 as a Cottondale High School student. She went on to earn a masters degree from the University of Florida, College of Nuccio has worked for Big Bend AHEC.

Page 18 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 8, 2012 GUEST COLUMNby Mickey Larkins, President Florida Bear Hunters Asso. and former TAG memberWell, the FWC has spoken and the Florida Black Bear Management Plan is now the law of the land in Florida. This 196 page management plan should be called Floridas Human Management Plan In Living with Bears on your own Property. Bears have been removed from the threatened and endangered list and the Commissioners as well as the FWC staff are patting themselves on the back at what they have done to increase the bear population. I could have written the Bear Management Plan for Florida on one page and accomplished the same results as the FWC staff. Are you ready? Here it is: No bear hunting in Florida. My name is Mickey Larkins and I am the President of the Florida Bear Hunters Association. I was also a member of the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) that gave the FWC Staff a hunters perspective of what should be included or not included you can tell that they did not take my request that a provision to restart bear hunting in Florida be added. At a teleconference meeting earlier this year one animal rights group wanted it to remain a felony if a person did anything to attract a bear and they would be charged with a felony. I argued with the FWC staff and the animal rights group, asking them: Do you really want to charge a 75-year-old grandmother with a felony because she put up a hummingbird feeder in her yard that her grandchildren gave her and a bear came into her yard and drank the sugar water out of the feeder? take it to court. draft is that if you kill a bear now it is a misdemeanor instead of a felony. I have argued with the FWC staff for several years now that they (the FWC) have allowed rights groups representing as stake holders in drafting the bear management plan than sportsmen. Twenty-four vanity plates are available to anyone who wants to support animal rights or environmental groups. Now, how many are there for support hunting as a heritage of Florida? Zero. Why does the FWC support so many environmental awareness vanity plates? The answer is very simple: Over the past 20 years the number of hunters in Florida has decreased, so the amount of money collected by the FWC has gone down. In order to offset these declining funds someone within the FWC came up with a brilliant idea. This unknown person must have said, Hey, we are only receiving funds from a small demographic group of people Sportsmen when there is a whole group of nonsportsmen that we are not receiving any funds them to give us money? So the idea of selling environmental friendly vanity plates was born. Folks, Here is the answer! Its all about the money, honey, all about the money! A staff member implied to me that hunting for bears in Florida was not stopped because of low bear populations. It was stopped because they (The FWC) were not receiving enough money from selling bear hunting license to warrant law enforcements time and expense to monitor bear hunting. One fact that has been overlooked is that the population of bears has not changed can go online and read any report conducted by the FWC and see that in the earlyto-mid-2000s there were 3,000 bears. The same population as now. I asked FWC staff, Are there enough bears to begin hunting in areas that are overpopulated? FWC staff implied that there were and have been enough bears to begin hunting back in 2005 in certain areas of Florida and that they need to be hunted to control the population. They also stated that they would never make that statement in a public forum because of the risks of retaliation from executive staff, along with lawsuits that would be break the FWC. in Florida. In the past 10 years more bears have been hit by cars and killed each year than have ever been killed in any hunting season. If the FWC is going to continue to allow the bear population to increase from their population estimate of 3,000 then what are they going to do when the population hits 4,000 to 5,000 or more? People who live or hunt on private property are the ones who are complaining about the overpopulation of bears. People who hunt on federal and state lands have no problem. Why? Because the bears are overpopulated on publicly owned lands and they are looking for food and home range on privately owned land. One thing that I have learned in dealing with the FWC Commissioners and FWC staff is that they will do nothing unless directed by the FWC Commissioners and the FWC Commissioners only take FWC staff recommendations. If FWC staff tells the FWC Combe protected then the FWC Commissioners will outlaw bug zappers and insect killing spray. Then put signs on What will it take for the FWC to reinstate bear hunting in Florida? Sadly, there is a precedent that will be used. It has been used before in Florida with alligators. Someone or several people in Florida are going to have to be, maimed, mauled or God forbid killed by a bear. The FWC will listen to what the sportsmen have to say, but not necessarily hear what we are saying. Maybe someday Commissioners will take a chance that in some situations, sportsmen know more than FWC staff and agree with the sportsmens recommendations. FWC listens to animal activists instead of hunters about bears In 2011, there were over I humbly ask for yourVote and SupportThank You!

I was walking down the hall when David and Julia spotted me and came running, saying, Miss Gayle, were back! That day he told her he wanted to be in band. She put him on bass drum. While he did not have the musical ability of some of his bandmates, He made up for it in enthuasium, she said. He wanted to be a part of the band so badly, she said. He always listened closely and did exactly what you wanted. She added, I loved that boy. Although students are supposed to stay in assigned areas before school takes in, David always found a way to slip into his music teachers building each morning. When she chided him and told him he wasnt supposed to be there, he would tell her, Im leaving...I just need a hug. He always got one. I think David was sent to teach us something, she said. The example set by the shy boy, who was more comfortable around adults than his peers yet aware when another student might feel left out, was a lesson in not judging others, reaching out and loving one another. He was as sweet as he could be; he just had so much love, she said. I keep thinking hes going to walk through the door and say, Hey, mom. Whats up? Davids mother says sometimes. The arrival of the new for her family, especially Davids 12-year-old sister Julia. They were 15 months apart in age but everybody thought they were twins, their mother said. They were real close. David also has two older sisters, Rachel Dean and Virginia Minyard, 28. Virginia came forward in church Sunday morning and went to the lake with many others for an afternoon ceremony, where she was baptized. Approximately 160 church members from Lake Mystic Baptist and the First Baptist Church of Bristol gathered at the lake Sunday. There, Davids mother shared her loss with another grieving parent, Teresa Hamlin, whose 29-year-old daughter, Ramsey, died on Aug. 30 after her body began to reject the heart that had been transplanted in her body nearly two years earlier. The two mothers each released a white dove in memory of the children they had just lost. It was an awesome ceremony, said Cornwell.

AUGUST 8, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 23 The Tuskegee Airman Commemorative Medal was awarded to Cornelius Davis in 2006 by President George Bush in recognition of his outstanding service as one of the Tuskegee Airman in World War II. Mr. Davis has made a permanent gift of the medal to the Calhoun County Public Library so that young people from the county may have a better understanding of the part black aviators playing in defense of this country. It is on display in the cabinet in the hall. It is his wish that generations II soldiers and their families made to the preservation of freedoms in the United States of America. Cornelius Davis mother, Elizabeth, drowned when he was three years old. His father, James Stephen Davis, married Idela Davis, his second wife. Cornelius was taught to love the Lord, have a strong work ethic, love his country and follow the high standards of his parents. He remembers Idela as a brave and good woman. Cornelius credits his desire for education and love of books to Mr. Robert Allen, Principal of Mayhaw School. School only ran for six months out of the year because children were needed to help make a living. He graduated from Mayhaw in 1938 after completing the eighth grade. That was the highest grade offered at Mayhaw School. As a student he worked for the Bush Drug Store which was owned by two brothers, one of which was a licensed druggist. The pharmacist offered to teach him to mix drugs and eventually gave him a career. Cornelius chose to live with his Aunt Mary and his education that gave him opportunities in life. He particularly wants any young person reading this to remember that it was education that gave him his wings. Cornelius Davis said he has a lot of good memories of Calhoun County. Among them was a part the W.T. Neal Lumber Company played by providing jobs dur ing the Depression. He said Neal had a family insur a month was held out of their pay and they could go to Dr. Finlay. He was a highly respected physician in the county. Cornelius said this meant a great deal to families during such hard times. Workers were paid in Jug-A-Loo and U.S. currency. Some of the stores gave a full value for the Jug-A-Loo and some gave discounted values. Every Sunday, the minister would announce the amounts in each currency. Cornelius Davis stated that Horace Mallory was a great inspiration and friend to him. Mr. Mallory was a man of principal that Cornelius honored, respected and trusted. During World War II he thought often of his friend and the advice Mr. Mallory gave him over the years. Cornelius Davis credits Horace Mallory for being an inspiration to him.Movie Red Tails portrays the life of the Tuskegee AirmenHollywood is using the silver screen to re-tell the stories of the courageous men who helped break the color barriers during World War II. The new movie Red Tails tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen experiment. The brave actions of change in this country. A North Florida man 90-year-old Cornelius Davis, of Blountstown was part of that movement. Davis was a part of the 301st Davis was an armorer, making sure the pilots had the weapons and training to hit their target. We had to keep the pilots sharp, and give them a decent training ... When a ready for combat, Davis said. Davis was a volunteer United States Army Air watching pilots in action during a movie, he changed his mind. At that time they showed a news reel and a lot of action before the main feature ... This tank was rolling along and this airplane dropped the bomb on it. I said Im going to drop the bomb, Davis said. It was in a time when African-Americans were not believed to be capable for this type of combat. During World War II, The U.S. Army embarked on an experi ment that allowed blacks to be trained as pilots. the most famous unit of the Tuskegee Airmen. Dr. A.J. Brinkler, a local expert on Tuskegee Airmen most part, accurate. tasks that the Tuskegee Airmen accomplished, Brinkler M-62s. All those things really happened. Dr. Brinkler is not only an aviation enthusiasthes a pilot himself. He gives credit to the Tuskegee airmen for breaking the color-barrier. Brinkler also paid for a group to go see the movie Red Tails. Davis was among the group of those attending. Brinkler says that the movie will drive people to research the pioneer pilots. Brinkler is also famil iar with Tallahassees part in World War II and Tuskegee Airmen history. He says airmen made a stop at what was then the that stop, Brinker says they were forced to sleep kept black prisoners. In addition, two former Florida A&M Univer sity students also became part of the famed Tuskegee movement. Davis volunteered to go overseas with the 99th Fighter Group for Japans invasion, but he he could be a part of the famous group.Davis life after the Air ForceCornelius Davis truly lives a blessed life. Those in Blountstown who know Mr. Davis recognize him as one of the original Tuskegee Airman. He is proud that he went to school with David (Chappy) James, Jr. who became Mr. Davis was given a camera by his sister when he graduated from high school. He probably never realized at the time how a leaving the Air Force he traveled to Detroit, MI where he had relatives living. where he got a job at Ford Motor Company in the Rouge Complex. To understand the scope and size of Ford Rouge you must know that it covered over 2,000 acres, contained 92 100,000 people. Mr. Davis became the staff photographer for Local 600 at Ford Rouge. He photographed President Lyndon B. Johnson, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, G. Mennen Williams, Coleman Young (another Tuskegee Airman and Mayor of Detroit) as well as many others. He became very active as a union representative and also has pictures he took at their convention in Atlanta. He is proud to relate that he marched with Martin Luther King. He retired from Ford Motor Company after 32 years, while still at a young enough age to seek other employment. He spoke fondly of the time he spent delivering automobiles from Detroit to everywhere in the United States. The only place he hasnt driven a car for delivery is Hawaii. Mr. Davis and his wife retired and moved to Henry 300 retirement communities in the United States. His wife died seven years ago. He came full circle in his life, returning in 2009 to Blountstown. He lives independently in a lovely white house back in his old home town. At 91 years young, Mr. Davis still gets around well despite his blindness. Calhoun County Clerk of Court Ruth Attaway has taken another step in having original records dated all the way back to the early 1800s available on the Clerks website. January 2001, there was almost no technology in There was no internet, no email, not even a website on which the records could be viewed, she said. None of the Countys documents of business was to move forward to provide access and protection to these important records. With the help of Florida Association of Clerks, she was able to get the technology in place and to begin to place online the current original records. The original records back to 1985 were made available during Most of the old records have been imaged and are now going on the website at www.calhounclerk.com online last week.

Chipola Health TalkKaren Collins, MS, RD, CDNAmerican Institute for Cancer ResearchQ: Is it true that regular soft drinks are a concern for heart health? Doesn't heart disease risk come from too much saturated fat and sodium?A: Studies linking sugar-sweetened soft drink consumption with increased risk of heart disease have surprised many people. It's true that too much saturated fat increases risk of heart disease and too much sodium tends to raise blood pressure, which also raises risk. Being too sedentary raises heart disease risk as well. Another concern is that regular soft drinks are concentrated sources of calories, and being overweight increases heart disease risk. Recent studies still link frequent consumption of regular (sugar-sweetened) soft drinks with increased heart disease even after adjusting for people's weight and recent weight changes. In two large U.S. cohort (population) studies, the Nurses' Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, each 12-ounce daily serving of a regular soft drink increased risk of heart disease 15 to 19 percent, even after accounting for differences in physical activity, blood pressure, blood cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. Among women, weight related to part but not all of this link. For men, those with highest consumption of regular soft drinks had higher levels can damage blood vessels and seems to be an important contributor to cardiovascular disease (as well possibly promoting development of type 2 diabetes and cancer). Perhaps part of the increased risk of heart disease was related to other differences between those with higher and lower soft drink consumption, but for now these several expert health panels that we avoid or minimize consumption of sugar-sweetened soft drinks. A: These poles are called walking poles or trekking work more muscles in your walk with the increased arm movement, such as your chest and abdominal muscles walking on uneven outdoor terrain, walking poles can be a big help making those walks safer. These poles can be especially helpful if you like to walk hills. As you climb up, the poles can transfer some weight to your upper body, reducing leg fatigue; as you go down hills, they can help you keep your balance and reduce stress on knees and other joints. Walking poles differ in weight and features. Some have an anti-shock feature, which can be especially helpful for people with weak ankles, knees or hips. But it does add to the poles' weight and price, so may not be worth it if you're looking mainly for balance and support or a chance to add upper body movement to your walks. It's important to learn how to adjust the poles to proper length for your body. For support on an uphill climb, or lengthen them a bit for better balance as you go down a big hill. All in all, the fun addition to hiking and may make those walks safer for people with balance problems. ***The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) is the cancer charity that fosters research on the relationship of nutrition, physical activity and educates the public about the results.

For 26 years, he has served Liberty County as a deputy, as a chief deputy and for the last 3 1/2 years as sheriff. Liberty County is rated #1 in the state for safety according to a FDLE crime report. FACT has as much to do with the people who live here as it does the department he leads. There are some good people that live here but we all see what is in the paper every week. Meth use and domestic violence is more common than ever before and our sheriffs department is dealing with these issues every day. 188 drug arrest in 3 1/2 years averages out to one every week. We need to continue with what is working rather well, if you consider the facts. Empty promises and accusations that cannot be backed up with facts are what our competition offers. Surely there have been mistakes made and some changes were appropriate to address these issues. When making your decision for sheriff, please consider the facts, because while some people enjoy a good story, the truth is what you have to live with.Vote for an re-elect Donnie Conyers for Liberty County Sheriff.Thanks, Grant ConyersVIRGINIA BLAIR MORGAN QUINCYVirginia Blair Morgan, 89, of Quincy, passed away Saturday, August, 4 2012 at home.

AUGUST 8, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 35 Outta the Woods by Tony YoungWith the dog days of summer upon us, its hard to think about hunting. However, if youre between the ages of 16 and 37 and havent yet taken the states hunter safety class, now is the perfect time to be thinking about during hunting season while people scramble to get offer a better opportunity for students to attend, because they often have more free time then. People 16 years old or older and born after May 31, 1975, must complete the FWCs hunter safety require ment before they can buy a Florida hunting license. There is an exception though. A law passed a few years ago by the Florida Legislature enables individu als who fall into that category to hunt without having to people the opportunity to purchase a license to hunt while under the supervision of a licensed hunter who is at least 21 years old and meets the hunter safety requirement. Its designed to encourage experienced hunters to teach novice hunters safety, ethics, wildlife and hunting skills and respect for the great outdoors. Its a great incentive for getting more people to try hunting and, I hope, for the experienced hunters among us to hook some new folks on the sport we love. However, to hunt by yourself unsupervised, you still have to take and pass a hunter safety class and purchase a regular hunting license. If youre a youngster and already hunt, I suggest you go ahead and take a hunter safety class before you turn 16. Of course, until then, you may hunt under adult supervision. You can register for a hunter safety class by going to for your convenience. Theres the traditional course, which is 12 hours of home. But, youll still have to sign up for the skills The traditional course is offered during four weekdays each session is three hours and offered after normal working hours. On the weekend, youll spend eight is Floridas many hunting laws. An FWC law enforce safety instructors teach the remaining curriculum. Youll be taught ethics, hunter responsibility, parts to shoot. Youll discover the differences between various bullets, calibers and gauges; how to identify game animals; and learn wildlife conservation and best management practices for native species. In addition, and fundamentals of bowhunting also are taught. In your last hour in the classroom, youll be given a tions. All you need is to score an 80 percent or better, and then you get to move outside to the shooting range youll get to shoot clay pigeons with a shotgun, practice youll have the chance to shoot one if youd like. All guns, bows, targets and ammo are provided. All you have to do is take aim! your hunter safety card. At that point you can purchase a Florida hunting license and get ready for opening day. If you choose to take the hunter safety class online or material and be given a practice test to prepare you for the last segment the skills day. learn much of what is taught during the traditional course, including hunting laws and ethics, how to handle the crosshairs. Then youll get to shoot on the range and 2012-13 hunting season is just around the corner!Take hunter safety and get ready for opening day!

The FHSAAs director of athletics will conduct a workshop on the new safety requirements at a compliance seminar next week. Pre-season practices ofgust 6 for student-athletes competing for their schools in football, golf, swimming/ diving and girls volleyball, and new procedures are in place to protect the youths from the heat, inadequate hydration and concussions. Cross country and bowling practices begin one week later. For coaches, parents and everyone else associated with high school athletics, nothing is more important than the safety of the students, said FHSAA Executive Director Dr. Roger Dearing. At the FHSAA, we are committed to making sure our members understand what they must do to ensure that competitors have safe, enjoyable experiences as high school athletes. The FHSAAs Board of Directors adopted new heatrelated policies in June, designed to ensure that young athletes drink plenty of water and do not practice too many hours each week. Under the new policies, schools must: weeks of practice, to allow student-athletes to adapt to conditions. minutes of practice, studentminute rest and hydration break. to water for student-athletes at all times. in authority to never deny a student-athlete access to water if requested. The FHSAA also adopted a new concussion and heatrelated illness form intended to create safety awareness among students and their caretakers by explaining the risks and symptoms associated with each problem. A concussion action plan developed by the Advisory Subcommittee and adopted by the Board requires that: exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion such as loss of consciousness, headache, dizziness, confusion or balance problems must be immedi ately removed from the competition and cannot return to play until he or she is cleared by an appropriate health care professional. paid coaches are required to view an online education course about concussions. a new consent form related to concussions and heat-related illness to ensure that parents understand the conditions and the rules that apply to them.

AUGUST 8, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift GAFFE PATROLWASHINGTON The idea that a presidential candidate can burnish his foreign-policy credentials by traveling to three countries in six days is silly to begin with, but that was the premise of Governor Romneys recent trip to London, Israel and Poland. It was also about raising money. Romney held two fundraisers with Americans abroad in London and another in Israel, where just 45 donors at a high-dollar breakfast contributed over a million dollars to his campaign. Maybe the money made up for the negative headlines that followed Romney wherever he touched down. In London, his assessment of the city maybe not being ready for the Olympics became a major diplomatic snub. Romney had hoped to bask in the glow of the games and instead had to walk back his comments after British Prime Minister David Cameron said there was no comparison between staging a major event in a crowded cosmopolitan city as opposed to the middle of nowhere, a reference to the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City that Romney ran. Then it was on to Israel where Romney in his zeal to praise the economic miracle the Israelis have produced in the middle of the desert managed to insult the Palestinians by attributing third stop on Romneys tour, was gaffe-free until an aide lost his temper and cursed out reporters traveling with the campaign for shouting out questions to the candidate. The aides behavior and subsequent apology dominated the Romney news out of Poland. Then theres the Romney horse, Rafalca, participating in the Olympian equestrian event known as dressage, which is horse dancing. Calling dressage the most hoity-toity activity one could imagine, conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer upper-class activity easily ridiculed that can doom a candidacy. Humorist Stephan Colbert corrected Krauthammer, saying, Its not hoity-toity; its Frou-Frou. These incidents examined individually dont amount to much, but taken together, they begin to build a narrative of a candidate prone to gaffes. And because Romney isnt providing much substance for reporters to write about and he rarely takes questions from the traveling press corps, gaffes become the story. Voters arent paying much attention during this summer period, but the Obama campaign isnt letting up. Theyre usinto their portrayal of him as an insensitive rich guy CEO whos tone deaf and cant be trusted to credibly represent his country abroad. Its doubtful any of the past weeks embarrassments will be remembered by Election Day, but they are symptoms of Romneys larger problem with the voters, that he doesnt come across as a real person. Polls show that the voters think Romney might do a better job in managing the economy, but they dont like him; they like President Obama. And that contrast is keeping Obama in the game despite the bad economy. Campaigning in Orlando Thursday, Obama made an impromptu stop at a Puerto Rican caf, ordered a pulled pork sandwich with rice and beans and posed for photographs with a group of kids. Those human moments provide the contrast that Obama is counting on to keep him competitive in swing states like Florida in the months ahead. Romney is a talented businessman, no question, but when it comes to diplomacy abroad and politics at home, he can be tone deaf. When a pattern emerges in the coverage of a candidate, it can be deadly. Just ask Al Gore, who was portrayed as a serial exaggerator after suggesting in a few ill-chosen words that he had invented the Internet. Every reporter out there now is on gaffe patrol when theyre following Romney and that isnt good news for a candidate already too buttonedup to relate to voters.

The USDA has recently issued new school meal requirements that will be effective beginning with the 2012-2013 school year.  This means students in Liberty County Schools will see some changes in the foods served at school next school year.    Chartwells School Dining Services manages the food service department for Liberty County School Board and has made strides in incorporating several positive initiatives that will allow for a smooth transition to the new meal requirements. One major adjustment for students required by the new meal pattern from USDA will be that their meal must include at least 1/2 cup of a fruit or vegetable in order to be considered a complete meal.   Other changes, which are already in progress, include incorporating more whole grains, a limit on bread and protein servings, a reduction in fats and sodium, or salt. The change in legislation means an increase in food cost for each meal and an increase in transportation and fuel costs, which could result in meal price increases. Meal prices will be determined by Liberty County School Board and will be communicated accordingly.  Both Chartwells and  Liberty County School Board are dedicated to providing quality nutritious meals that students will enjoy and choose to eat.   We hope you will encourage your students to try new fruits and vegetables and you will join us for a meal at school to see the changes for yourself. For more information about food and nutrition services, you may visit www.fns.usda.gov.Changes, which will also affect Calhoun County schools, include more grain, fruit and vegetables

The old middle school was deeded to the North Florida Child Development Center. county in head start and preschool programs, and there was an agreement to allow the Mayhaw Community to have space to be used for the African American community. We purchased three tracts of land in Altha and worked out an inter local agreement with the town of Altha that partnered with the school district to have everything in place as we apply for funding to build a new pre-k through eighth grade school on that property. We are in the process of spending $300,000 for upgrade construction at Carr School. Due to the hard work of school administrators, teachers and students we were the only school district in Florida to have all of our schools receive an A Grade in school grades. We are one of 11 school districts to be recognized as a high performing school district since school grades began in 1998. Our district received state and national recognition in many areas of student performance last year. We had a state championship in Boys Weightlifting. We sent 10 delegates to the National FCCLA Convention in Orlando. These FCCLA delegation had representa tion from Altha, Carr and Blountstown. We also have highly recognized school programs in such area as agriculture, music, FBLA and other program areas. We will have strong discipline areas of student conduct as mandated by state policy. We will enforce attendance, reasonable dress code, punitive actions against bullying, violence, drugs and distractions that take away from the learning environment and school safety. School grades are divided into two areas. Half of the school grade is based on test scores and the other half is based on how the district achieves programs that will provide our students with the demands of society to be highly successful and ready to face the challenges of tomorrow. The second part of the school grades formula is based on opportunities to take accelerated courses, be college ready and have high graduation rates from all of our student population areas. To be a more competitive district, we plan to offer Algebra to eighth grade students and maybe Biology as well at some point. We are making great strides through the STEM Program to have more competitive students in area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. We have brought the band program back in full swing at Blountstown high and middle school. We have started a cross country running program at Altha and Blountstown High School. There is a strong interest in wanting to involve middle school students also into that program. sponsible we have combined the duties of transportation one position with no salary increase. The special service director position has been absorbed by a number of other administrators. We have and one special assignment positions at the county level. district positions. In spite of over three million in budget cuts by the state we have maintained a strong reserve balance. We will strive to maintain a district that requires academic excellence and high administrative and teaching standards. We will strive to make our campuses drug and violence free and provide safe and secure campuses and challenge students, teachers and administrators to work together to keep us in the elite status of high performing school districts.

After an exhaustive two-year investigation, DOE dismissed all allegations against me due to a lack of evidence. Four years ago, Tommy also promised local contractors a fair stake in the construction of the new Blountstown High School.

The camp is provided at no cost to the students. Twenty students from Jackson and Washington counties spent the camp week at Chipola, while the 14 students from Calhoun and Liberty counties visited locations in Bristol and Blountstown and Chipola College. Camp activities included pig heart and kidney dissection, blood-typing, medical terminology, and simulation lab experience. In the simulation lab at Chipola, students were able to learn many skills practiced by nursing, EMT, and paramedic students. Students were provided with an overview of several health careers in order to understand the entire health care team. Jackson Hospital provided a tour of their facility and an opportunity for a day of shadowing in various departments. Students also received a seven-hour ACT review information on the physical effects and dangers of many current drug trends. Calhoun and Liberty campers spent the afternoon in the DMD in Bristol. Campers learned about dental care and hygiene and were able to experience hands on dental activities. Calhoun Liberty Hospital also provided students with the opportunity to tour their facility and shadow health professionals. A highlight of the camp was a road trip to Tallahassee during which the students toured the FSU College of Medicine and had an opportunity to interact with current medical students. The medical students taught campers skills training in the simulation lab to learn heart and lung sounds and vital signs. Big Bend AHEC has sponsored similar camps for serves a 14 county area and provides health education services and tobacco cessation and prevention programs. AHEC also helps recruit health professionals to rural areas. Camp Director, Brigitta Nuccio, says, Our hope is that we will help students get the experience they need to know if a health career is right for them and that they will return to rural areas to practice. Nuccio attended the camp herself in 1995 as a Cottondale High School student. She went on to earn a masters degree from the University of Florida, College of Nuccio has worked for Big Bend AHEC. Camp locations continue to be added each year. This year, in addition to Chipola and Calhoun-Liberty, camps were also held in Madison and Gulf counties.

Page 18 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 8, 2012 GUEST COLUMNby Mickey Larkins, President Florida Bear Hunters Asso. and former TAG memberWell, the FWC has spoken and the Florida Black Bear Management Plan is now the law of the land in Florida. This 196 page management plan should be called Floridas Human Management Plan In Living with Bears on your own Property. Bears have been removed from the threatened and endangered list and the Commissioners as well as the FWC staff are patting themselves on the back at what they have done to increase the bear population. I could have written the Bear Management Plan for Florida on one page and accomplished the same results as the FWC staff. Are you ready? Here it is: No bear hunting in Florida. My name is Mickey Larkins and I am the President of the Florida Bear Hunters Association. I was also a member of the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) that gave the FWC Staff a hunters perspective of what should be included or not included you can tell that they did not take my request that a provision to restart bear hunting in Florida be added. At a teleconference meeting earlier this year one animal rights group wanted it to remain a felony if a person did anything to attract a bear and they would be charged with a felony. I argued with the FWC staff and the animal rights group, asking them: Do you really want to charge a 75-year-old grandmother with a felony because she put up a hummingbird feeder in her yard that her grandchildren gave her and a bear came into her yard and drank the sugar water out of the feeder? take it to court. draft is that if you kill a bear now it is a misdemeanor instead of a felony. I have argued with the FWC staff for several years now that they (the FWC) have allowed rights groups representing as stake holders in drafting the bear management plan than sportsmen. Twenty-four vanity plates are available to anyone who wants to support animal rights or environmental groups. Now, how many are there for support hunting as a heritage of Florida? Zero. Why does the FWC support so many environmental awareness vanity plates? The answer is very simple: Over the past 20 years the number of hunters in Florida has decreased, so the amount of money collected by the FWC has gone down. In order to offset these declining funds someone within the FWC came up with a brilliant idea. This unknown person must have said, Hey, we are only receiving funds from a small demographic group of people Sportsmen when there is a whole group of nonsportsmen that we are not receiving any funds them to give us money? So the idea of selling environmental friendly vanity plates was born. Folks, Here is the answer! Its all about the money, honey, all about the money! A staff member implied to me that hunting for bears in Florida was not stopped because of low bear populations. It was stopped because they (The FWC) were not receiving enough money from selling bear hunting license to warrant law enforcements time and expense to monitor bear hunting. One fact that has been overlooked is that the population of bears has not changed can go online and read any report conducted by the FWC and see that in the earlyto-mid-2000s there were 3,000 bears. The same population as now. I asked FWC staff, Are there enough bears to begin hunting in areas that are overpopulated? FWC staff implied that there were and have been enough bears to begin hunting back in 2005 in certain areas of Florida and that they need to be hunted to control the population. They also stated that they would never make that statement in a public forum because of the risks of retaliation from executive staff, along with lawsuits that would be break the FWC. in Florida. In the past 10 years more bears have been hit by cars and killed each year than have ever been killed in any hunting season. If the FWC is going to continue to allow the bear population to increase from their population estimate of 3,000 then what are they going to do when the population hits 4,000 to 5,000 or more? People who live or hunt on private property are the ones who are complaining about the overpopulation of bears. People who hunt on federal and state lands have no problem. Why? Because the bears are overpopulated on publicly owned lands and they are looking for food and home range on privately owned land. One thing that I have learned in dealing with the FWC Commissioners and FWC staff is that they will do nothing unless directed by the FWC Commissioners and the FWC Commissioners only take FWC staff recommendations. If FWC staff tells the FWC Combe protected then the FWC Commissioners will outlaw bug zappers and insect killing spray. Then put signs on What will it take for the FWC to reinstate bear hunting in Florida? Sadly, there is a precedent that will be used. It has been used before in Florida with alligators. Someone or several people in Florida are going to have to be, maimed, mauled or God forbid killed by a bear. The FWC will listen to what the sportsmen have to say, but not necessarily hear what we are saying. Maybe someday Commissioners will take a chance that in some situations, sportsmen know more than FWC staff and agree with the sportsmens recommendations. FWC listens to animal activists instead of hunters about bears In 2011, there were over I humbly ask for yourVote and SupportThank You!

AUGUST 8, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 19 She recalled being at the school a few days before new term was to begin for his sixth grade year when David and his younger sister, Julia, came to visit. I was walking down the hall when David and Julia spotted me and came running, saying, Miss Gayle, were back! That day he told her he wanted to be in band. She put him on bass drum. While he did not have the musical ability of some of his bandmates, He made up for it in enthuasium, she said. He wanted to be a part of the band so badly, she said. He always listened closely and did exactly what you wanted. She added, I loved that boy. Although students are supposed to stay in assigned areas before school takes in, David always found a way to slip into his music teachers building each morning. When she chided him and told him he wasnt supposed to be there, he would tell her, Im leaving...I just need a hug. He always got one. I think David was sent to teach us something, she said. The example set by the shy boy, who was more comfortable around adults than his peers yet aware when another student might feel left out, was a lesson in not judging others, reaching out and loving one another. He was as sweet as he could be; he just had so much love, she said. I keep thinking hes going to walk through the door and say, Hey, mom. Whats up? Davids mother says sometimes. The arrival of the new for her family, especially Davids 12-year-old sister Julia. They were 15 months apart in age but everybody thought they were twins, their mother said. They were real close. David also has two older sisters, Rachel Dean and Virginia Minyard, 28. Virginia came forward in church Sunday morning and went to the lake with many others for an afternoon ceremony, where she was baptized. Approximately 160 church members from Lake Mystic Baptist and the First Baptist Church of Bristol gathered at the lake Sunday. There, Davids mother shared her loss with another grieving parent, Teresa Hamlin, whose 29-year-old daughter, Ramsey, died on Aug. 30 after her body began to reject the heart that had been transplanted in her body nearly two years earlier. The two mothers each released a white dove in memory of the children they had just lost. It was an awesome ceremony, said Cornwell. After she released her dove, It came back, sat my dad and went toward the DAVID CORNWELL continued from page 1ABOVE: Betty Cornwell reacts after a dove she released in memory of her PHOTOS COURTESY KAREN JOINER MORAN and KATHERYN HINTON

AUGUST 8, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 23 The Tuskegee Airman Commemorative Medal was awarded to Cornelius Davis in 2006 by President George Bush in recognition of his outstanding service as one of the Tuskegee Airman in World War II. Mr. Davis has made a permanent gift of the medal to the Calhoun County Public Library so that young people from the county may have a better understanding of the part black aviators playing in defense of this country. It is on display in the cabinet in the hall. It is his wish that generations II soldiers and their families made to the preservation of freedoms in the United States of America. Cornelius Davis mother, Elizabeth, drowned when he was three years old. His father, James Stephen Davis, married Idela Davis, his second wife. Cornelius was taught to love the Lord, have a strong work ethic, love his country and follow the high standards of his parents. He remembers Idela as a brave and good woman. Cornelius credits his desire for education and love of books to Mr. Robert Allen, Principal of Mayhaw School. School only ran for six months out of the year because children were needed to help make a living. He graduated from Mayhaw in 1938 after completing the eighth grade. That was the highest grade offered at Mayhaw School. As a student he worked for the Bush Drug Store which was owned by two brothers, one of which was a licensed druggist. The pharmacist offered to teach him to mix drugs and eventually gave him a career. Cornelius chose to live with his Aunt Mary and his education that gave him opportunities in life. He particularly wants any young person reading this to remember that it was education that gave him his wings. Cornelius Davis said he has a lot of good memories of Calhoun County. Among them was a part the W.T. Neal Lumber Company played by providing jobs during the Depression. He said Neal had a family insura month was held out of their pay and they could go to Dr. Finlay. He was a highly respected physician in the county. Cornelius said this meant a great deal to families during such hard times. Workers were paid in Jug-A-Loo and U.S. currency. Some of the stores gave a full value for the Jug-A-Loo and some gave discounted values. Every Sunday, the minister would announce the amounts in each currency. Cornelius Davis stated that Horace Mallory was a great inspiration and friend to him. Mr. Mallory was a man of principal that Cornelius honored, respected and trusted. During World War II he thought often of his friend and the advice Mr. Mallory gave him over the years. Cornelius Davis credits Horace Mallory for being an inspiration to him.Movie Red Tails portrays the life of the Tuskegee AirmenHollywood is using the silver screen to re-tell the stories of the courageous men who helped break the color barriers during World War II. The new movie Red Tails tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen experiment. The brave actions of change in this country. A North Florida man 90-year-old Cornelius Davis, of Blountstown was part of that movement. Davis was a part of the 301st Davis was an armorer, making sure the pilots had the weapons and training to hit their target. We had to keep the pilots sharp, and give them a decent training ... When a ready for combat, Davis said. Davis was a volunteer United States Army Air watching pilots in action during a movie, he changed his mind. At that time they showed a news reel and a lot of action before the main feature ... This tank was rolling along and this airplane dropped the bomb on it. I said Im going to drop the bomb, Davis said. It was in a time when African-Americans were not believed to be capable for this type of combat. During World War II, The U.S. Army embarked on an experiment that allowed blacks to be trained as pilots. the most famous unit of the Tuskegee Airmen. Dr. A.J. Brinkler, a local expert on Tuskegee Airmen most part, accurate. tasks that the Tuskegee Airmen accomplished, Brinkler M-62s. All those things really happened. Dr. Brinkler is not only an aviation enthusiasthes a pilot himself. He gives credit to the Tuskegee airmen for breaking the color-barrier. Brinkler also paid for a group to go see the movie Red Tails. Davis was among the group of those attending. Brinkler says that the movie will drive people to research the pioneer pilots. Brinkler is also familiar with Tallahassees part in World War II and Tuskegee Airmen history. He says airmen made a stop at what was then the that stop, Brinker says they were forced to sleep kept black prisoners. In addition, two former Florida A&M Univer sity students also became part of the famed Tuskegee movement. Davis volunteered to go overseas with the 99th Fighter Group for Japans invasion, but he he could be a part of the famous group.Davis life after the Air ForceCornelius Davis truly lives a blessed life. Those in Blountstown who know Mr. Davis recognize him as one of the original Tuskegee Airman. He is proud that he went to school with David (Chappy) James, Jr. who became Mr. Davis was given a camera by his sister when he graduated from high school. He probably never realized at the time how a leaving the Air Force he traveled to Detroit, MI where he had relatives living. where he got a job at Ford Motor Company in the Rouge Complex. To understand the scope and size of Ford Rouge you must know that it covered over 2,000 acres, contained 92 100,000 people. Mr. Davis became the staff photographer for Local 600 at Ford Rouge. He photographed President Lyndon B. Johnson, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, G. Mennen Williams, Coleman Young (another Tuskegee Airman and Mayor of Detroit) as well as many others. He became very active as a union representative and also has pictures he took at their convention in Atlanta. He is proud to relate that he marched with Martin Luther King. He retired from Ford Motor Company after 32 years, while still at a young enough age to seek other employment. He spoke fondly of the time he spent delivering automobiles from Detroit to everywhere in the United States. The only place he hasnt driven a car for delivery is Hawaii. Mr. Davis and his wife retired and moved to Henry 300 retirement communities in the United States. His wife died seven years ago. He came full circle in his life, returning in 2009 to Blountstown. He lives independently in a lovely white house back in his old home town. At 91 years young, Mr. Davis still gets around well despite his blindness. Calhoun County Clerk of Court Ruth Attaway has taken another step in having original records dated all the way back to the early 1800s available on the Clerks website. January 2001, there was almost no technology in There was no internet, no email, not even a website on which the records could be viewed, she said. None of the Countys documents of business was to move forward to provide access and protection to these important records. With the help of Florida Association of Clerks, she was able to get the technology in place and to begin to place online the current original records. The original records back to 1985 were made available during Most of the old records have been imaged and are now going on the website at www.calhounclerk.com online last week.

Chipola Health TalkKaren Collins, MS, RD, CDNAmerican Institute for Cancer ResearchQ: Is it true that regular soft drinks are a concern for heart health? Doesn't heart disease risk come from too much saturated fat and sodium?A: Studies linking sugar-sweetened soft drink consumption with increased risk of heart disease have surprised many people. It's true that too much saturated fat increases risk of heart disease and too much sodium tends to raise blood pressure, which also raises risk. Being too sedentary raises heart disease risk as well. Another concern is that regular soft drinks are concentrated sources of calories, and being overweight increases heart disease risk. Recent studies still link frequent consumption of regular (sugar-sweetened) soft drinks with increased heart disease even after adjusting for people's weight and recent weight changes. In two large U.S. cohort (population) studies, the Nurses' Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, each 12-ounce daily serving of a regular soft drink increased risk of heart disease 15 to 19 percent, even after accounting for differences in physical activity, blood pressure, blood cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. Among women, weight related to part but not all of this link. For men, those with highest consumption of regular soft drinks had higher levels can damage blood vessels and seems to be an important contributor to cardiovascular disease (as well possibly promoting development of type 2 diabetes and cancer). Perhaps part of the increased risk of heart disease was related to other differences between those with higher and lower soft drink consumption, but for now these several expert health panels that we avoid or minimize consumption of sugar-sweetened soft drinks. A: These poles are called walking poles or trekking work more muscles in your walk with the increased arm movement, such as your chest and abdominal muscles walking on uneven outdoor terrain, walking poles can be a big help making those walks safer. These poles can be especially helpful if you like to walk hills. As you climb up, the poles can transfer some weight to your upper body, reducing leg fatigue; as you go down hills, they can help you keep your balance and reduce stress on knees and other joints. Walking poles differ in weight and features. Some have an anti-shock feature, which can be especially helpful for people with weak ankles, knees or hips.

In loving memory of David Brian CORNWELLDecember 19, 1998 ~ July 31, 2012For all those who knew David, this loss is still fresh and new. It still seems like a dream, but we must continue together to work past this tragedy. As we all know David was a kind person who would help anyone in need just like many of you have helped us. He would be more than happy to step out of his comfort zone and we are glad for those who have stepped up to help us. Though it has been hard and the next few weeks will be hard for all of us, we must remember David is smiling down on us. David touched so many lives and led some to the Lord. He used compassion to share learning with younger students. And did so much more than we will never know. David always stood by his friends and sisters. We have heard stories of him helping others stand after falling, picking up messes and carrying books for people. Many people will miss his compassion. Many people have heard how David rededicated his life to Christ and was wanting to tell all about salvation. We have meet many of the young people who went on the recent trip to Tennessee and they have told us how he lived life to the fullest and shared the overthat he went through at school, he still took the time and pleasure reading to young students and helping them understand what they were learning. We will never know all the things that he did in his life, but we know he is still smiling and is in a better place. We as his family thank all who have that God will bless your generosity.With all our Love, Mom, Virginia and Aaron, Julia, Rachel, Ariyanna, Grandma & Papa Charles McClellan Funeral HomeButler-Morgan/Morgan-McClellan Funeral Home Building at 15 S.

Page 34 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 8, 2012 / Attention VOTERSDeep love for this county and its citizens is not a new idea or a campaign promise for Donnie Conyers. For 26 years, he has served Liberty County as a deputy, as a chief deputy and for the last 3 1/2 years as sheriff. Liberty County is rated #1 in the state for safety according to a FDLE crime report. FACT has as much to do with the people who live here as it does the department he leads. There are some good people that live here but we all see what is in the paper every week. Meth use and domestic violence is more common than ever before and our sheriffs department is dealing with these issues every day. 188 drug arrest in 3 1/2 years averages out to one every week. We need to continue with what is working rather well, if you consider the facts. Empty promises and accusations that cannot be backed up with facts are what our competition offers. Surely there have been mistakes made and some changes were appropriate to address these issues. When making your decision for sheriff, please consider the facts, because while some people enjoy a good story, the truth is what you have to live with.Vote for an re-elect Donnie Conyers for Liberty County SSheriff.Thanks, Grant ConyersVIRGINIaA BlaLAIR MORGaAN QUINCYVirginia Blair Morgan, 89, of Quincy, passed away Saturday, August, 4 2012 at home.

AUGUST 8, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 35 Outta the Woods by Tony YoungWith the dog days of summer upon us, its hard to think about hunting. However, if youre between the ages of 16 and 37 and havent yet taken the states hunter safety class, now is the perfect time to be thinking about during hunting season while people scramble to get offer a better opportunity for students to attend, because they often have more free time then. People 16 years old or older and born after May 31, 1975, must complete the FWCs hunter safety requirement before they can buy a Florida hunting license. There is an exception though. A law passed a few years ago by the Florida Legislature enables individuals who fall into that category to hunt without having to people the opportunity to purchase a license to hunt while under the supervision of a licensed hunter who is at least 21 years old and meets the hunter safety requirement. Its designed to encourage experienced hunters to teach novice hunters safety, ethics, wildlife and hunting skills and respect for the great outdoors. Its a great incentive for getting more people to try hunting and, I hope, for the experienced hunters among us to hook some new folks on the sport we love. However, to hunt by yourself unsupervised, you still have to take and pass a hunter safety class and purchase a regular hunting license. If youre a youngster and already hunt, I suggest you go ahead and take a hunter safety class before you turn 16. Of course, until then, you may hunt under adult supervision. You can register for a hunter safety class by going to for your convenience. Theres the traditional course, which is 12 hours of home. But, youll still have to sign up for the skills The traditional course is offered during four weekdays each session is three hours and offered after normal working hours. On the weekend, youll spend eight is Floridas many hunting laws. An FWC law enforcesafety instructors teach the remaining curriculum. Youll be taught ethics, hunter responsibility, parts to shoot.

In addition, and fundamentals of bowhunting also are taught. In your last hour in the classroom, youll be given a tions. All you need is to score an 80 percent or better, and then you get to move outside to the shooting range youll get to shoot clay pigeons with a shotgun, practice youll have the chance to shoot one if youd like. All guns, bows, targets and ammo are provided. All you have to do is take aim! your hunter safety card. At that point you can purchase a Florida hunting license and get ready for opening day. If you choose to take the hunter safety class online or material and be given a practice test to prepare you for the last segment the skills day. learn much of what is taught during the traditional course, including hunting laws and ethics, how to handle the crosshairs. Then youll get to shoot on the range and 2012-13 hunting season is just around the corner!Take hunter safety and get ready for opening day!

The FHSAAs director of athletics will conduct a workshop on the new safety requirements at a compliance seminar next week. Pre-season practices ofgust 6 for student-athletes competing for their schools in football, golf, swimming/ diving and girls volleyball, and new procedures are in place to protect the youths from the heat, inadequate hydration and concussions. Cross country and bowling practices begin one week later. For coaches, parents and everyone else associated with high school athletics, nothing is more important than the safety of the students, said FHSAA Executive Director Dr. Roger Dearing. At the FHSAA, we are committed to making sure our members understand what they must do to ensure that competitors have safe, enjoyable experiences as high school athletes. The FHSAAs Board of Directors adopted new heatrelated policies in June, designed to ensure that young athletes drink plenty of water and do not practice too many hours each week. Under the new policies, schools must: weeks of practice, to allow student-athletes to adapt to conditions. minutes of practice, studentminute rest and hydration break. to water for student-athletes at all times. in authority to never deny a student-athlete access to water if requested. The FHSAA also adopted a new concussion and heatrelated illness form intended to create safety awareness among students and their caretakers by explaining the risks and symptoms associated with each problem. A concussion action plan developed by the Advisory Subcommittee and adopted by the Board requires that: exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion such as loss of consciousness, headache, dizziness, confusion or balance problems must be immediately removed from the competition and cannot return to play until he or she is cleared by an appropriate health care professional. paid coaches are required to view an online education course about concussions. a new consent form related to concussions and heat-related illness to ensure that parents understand the conditions and the rules that apply to them. st / SSPORTSS C
