I am writing this before the results of the election are known. Thank you for the opportunity of serving you. I would also like to thank former Chief of Police Winston Deason for giving me my start in law enforcement, former Sheriff Buddy Smith and Sheriff David Tatum for the many opportunities they have afforded me over the past 29 years. I would like to especially thank those of you who put your in me during the campaign process. Your support and words of encouragement were greatly appreciated. I would like to compliment Chief Kimbrel, his family and supporters for a well run campaign. Chief Kimbrel served our community for 35 years and I respect his service. Many times during a campaign, emotions and feelings become strained or hurt. I encourage you to remember that our country is based on Christian beliefs, individual differences and the Democratic process. This is what separates us from the rest of the world and at the end of the day we are all here trying to serve our community. If I can be of any service to you, please dont hesitate to ask. God bless you. Sincerely,Roman Wood Roman WoodforSHERIFF Fair, Qualified, HonestThe political season is fast approaching and I would like to introduce myself to you. I am Roman Wood, the Major at the Calhoun County Sheriffs Office. I began my career in Calhoun County 29 years ago and have had the privilege of serving you for those years. I am now seeking the office of Sheriff. Over the next couple of months I will balance a full time job at the Sheriffs Office and make my way throughout the county seeing old friends and making new ones.

One of my fathers friends, Gene Richards, was driving his boat a little too fast in that stretch one day and got distracted by the behemoth sunning on the bank. As a result, he hit a cypress knee and He said the last thing he saw before going in was the gator sliding into the water. Someone asked, What did you do? Gene said, Let me put it like this: I got to the bank so fast that the money in my wallet wasnt wet. No one that I know of ever measured that old gator, but most folks agreed he was as long as a boat. In those days, that meant about 12 to 14 feet long. And he was the biggest one I had ever heard of. Until now, that is. My friend, Lane Stephens, a Tallahassee lobbyist who also serves as a nuisance alligator trapper in Gadsden County, was called out on August 11 to get rid of a big gator on Lake Talquin. What one Ive ever seen in my 47 years as a Floridian. At 14 feet long, he is genuinely as big as most than a thousand pounds, about twice as heavy. At that size, other alligators, deer, wild hogs, dogs and other animals become easy prey. While most gators will shy away from contact, some get too familiar with us or grow so large that they lose their natural fear. Thats why hunters like Lane are frequently called to remove them. When you see a gator, the best thing to do is admire him from a distance. Remember that its against the law to feed them, catch them or other wise disturb them. If one is too close for comfort or has gotten too familiar, call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at (866) FWC-GATOR and report it to them. They rely on licensed experts like Lane out there who know how to remove nuisance gators without getting hurt. And if Gene Richards was still around, hed gator is the last thing you want to do. Youll see viral videos on the Web that present large saltwater crocodiles as alligators. Some folks will tell you theyve seen gators twice that size. And there are shows like Swamp People that use clever camera angles and photography to make the gators appear larger than they really and scales come out, youll see very few that are actually this big.

Social and political ideology is whatever a person wants it to be. Ideologues mold, shape and massage their ideologies into whatever they wish in order to espouse their beliefs to their fellow man. While people are entitled to their beliefs, they are not entitled to force their social and political beliefs on others. Particularly, in a representative democracy, they are not entitled to use government to force their beliefs on others. My reading of the Federalist Papers and origins of the Constitution lead me to believe that James Madisons idea of representative government meant that electAmerica, not in the best interest of extremists, either from the left or right. But, the Congress is governing in the extremist mode. The House is dominated by right-wing extremists, particularly the Tea Party hacks whose only interest is defeating President Obama by closing down the government. They have no interest in governing in the best interest of the America people. House Republicans have voted 37 times to repeal ObamaCare, but refuse to vote on Obamas jobs bill that would put people to work on Americas crumbling infrastructure. Florida has hundreds of bridges in the unsafe category needing maintenance. The House Republican jobs bills are about removing restrictions on business. Close down the Environmental Protection Agency. EPAs pesky rules protecting clean air just get in the way of the job creators creating jobs. Right! House Republicans spend most of their time passing anti-abortion legislation. Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican Minority Leader in the Senate, has a stated goal of limiting President Obama to one term. Senate Republicans have used American. The net result of Republican hatred of anything Obama has brought America to its knees. But, things can get worse with the election of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as president and vice president. In my view, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romneys vice president selection, has into a Third-World nationa few rich people and a lot of poor people. Why? Because the Ryan Plan is the Ronald ReaganGeorge W. Bush economic plans on steroids. The numTrends in the Distribution of Household Income, 19792009. These statistics are the best proof that trickledown economics do not work. Prosperity, is to continue the trickle down economic theory that President Reagan and the Bushes have foisted on the American people which has thoroughly corrupted Madisons concept of representative government. President Franklin Roosevelts New Deal social programs have stuck in the Republican craw since the Roosevelt era. For whatever reasons that only a psychiatrist can fathom, Republicans dont like social programs. They particularly dont like government sponsored social programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Apparently, they dont believe that government has any role in American society. If elected president and vice president, Romney and Ryan are going to end the New Deal social programs. They plan to drive a stake through the heart of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Family Foundation have both analyzed Ryans Medicare plan. Before the American people buy this pig in a poke, they should read these documents along with many other analyses of the Ryan Medicare plan. In short, the Romney government gives you a voucher of some unknown amount, and you buy your own Medicare insurance. Even the least informed person would recognize that insurance companies expect to make a Here is a real test for the Romney-Ryan Medicare voucher plan. A relative of mine has cancer. He was operated on in one of the Souths large, well-known hospitals. He was in the hospital for two weeks at $10,000 per day. He will receive two chemo treatments per month for six months. Each treatment is a three-day event. After the chemo treatment, he will have an operation to reattach his small and large intestines. When all is said and done, close to $500,000 will have been spent. He has one of those Health Savings Accounts. He medical procedure. In his case, his medical insurance voucher and buy an insurance policy that will pay for a cancer operation and chemo treatments. I dont have a problem with the intent of the Ryan equilibrium. I agree that the Tax Code should be simpliWhat I disagree with is the trickle-down economic theory. It does not work. We all should pay an appropriate tax rate. If we want social programs, then pay for it. Politicians should have the backbone to tell we the people to ante up if they want social services or if they want to go to war. cal crisis is not complicated. Its only complicated for the economically ignorant who cant understand cash in, cash out. The Ryan plan to trash social programs to give tax deductions to the job creators is dumb as dirt.

AUGUST 15, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 11 by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorIn the five and a half years they had lived there, Mike Nichols said he and his wife Holly had always been a little concerned about a big live oak next to their rental home on NE Fuqua Circle in Altha. It was a huge tree that spanned the whole length of the house. We knew a branch was above our bedroom, he said. But the tree was green and seemed to be thriving. When his wife left for work Tuesday morning before 7:30 a.m., Mike stayed in bed half-asleep while listening out for his three-year-old son, Jaedon, who was watching cartoons in the living room. He heard a few things tumble onto the roof. And then there was another more ominous sound. Once I heard the thing to do was grab my boy and get out. He ran into the living room and scooped up his son. They were coming out of the brick home when they heard a big booming noise as the tree fell. The impact tore out about a third of the roof, knocked in three feet of insulation and propelled a 2x4 into the mattress. The board jabbed into the bed where I had been, Mike said. Had he not gotten out when he did, It probably would have gone through my leg or stomach. His son was unscathed but had he been following his usual routine, that might not have been the case. Mikes mother was coming to meet them for breakfast that morning so Holly had left Jaedon in the living room to greet her. But any other day, Jaedon would wake up, go into his parents room and sit at the foot of their bed to watch cartoons. After the tree gave way, that whole area of the bedroom was covered in limbs, 2x4s and debris. After the crash you couldnt even see the t.v., said Mike. He said he found himself standing outside in his shorts, holding his son. When it seemed the tree had settled, he put Jaedon in his truck and went inside to grab a pair of pants and get a phone to call for help. It was such a blur, going from half-asleep to getting out of the house, Mike said. Friends and neighbors were quick to respond. His fellow Red Level Lodge Free Masons arrived with chainsaws within an hour and a half but had to wait for an insurance adjuster he said. A member of the Waldorff family donated a storage shed so they would have a place to gather the few things they could salvage. And then came a downpour. It was perfectly calm this morning, Mike said, Then just two hours later, it rained horribly. By Tuesday afternoon, they were settled in an area motel room and arent quite sure what their next move is. It was a pretty eventful morning, but hes not worried. Weve got a lot of family members and a lot of support. Im glad Mike jumped when he did and there was a brick wall, said Millie Williams, who owns the property and is Hollys aunt. Apparently the tree was rotten in the center and you can see through it to the trunk, she said. She plans to rebuild and they hope to return to the property. Its where they started their married life and This is where we brought our baby home, Mike said. talking about the big boom! he heard. His only worry was getting in trouble for the big mess the tree had made. Once he learned he was off the hook, he quickly settled in to their new accommodations and was already enjoying the motel pool Tuesday afternoon.Fallen tree destroys Altha home T uesday morning with some wet and wild water fun July 31 and August 1.

Story and photos by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor Laura Stoltzfus describes it as inspirational, intensely personal and a way to explore different worlds. Its the reason that as a child, she was allowed to draw on the bathroom walls. Its why her parents did not punish her when their little girl decided to use a purple magic marker to enhance her eyebrows. As a teenager, it inspired her to drench her tresses with a rainbow of hair coloring products. And as a 20-year-old young woman studying Communication at FSU, it propels her in many directions: Painting, writing and speaking. It is empowering, transformative and... well, kinda fun. Its art. Or, as Laura would put it, ART Laura set the tone for Saturday evenings gathering at the Blountstown Librarys Arts Event as she described how appreciative she was to be raised by parents whose example taught her to value her own creativity. I grew up surrounded by art. My father (filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus) taught me the beauty of landscapes, she said. My mother (Esther Stoltzfus) transformed things with stories and her words. She and her brother, Nic, were allowed to learn about art as an everyday process. To hear her describe it, art is not something special, its something essential to ones own well-being. I grew up thinking being creative was normal, she said. Because of that, perhaps, she sees art in everything. She used it to guide her through some angstridden teenage years, she said, explaining, Doing art was an outlet...a way to share, feel and express things. As shes grown, shes found a way to use it to sort out her thoughts. The process of making art gives me time to think and my mind to think in a different way...my mind becomes unstuck. And she finds it helps her connect with the world. I can look at the art of someone who speaks a different language, or lived 100 years ago, and understand their feelings. She told the audience gathered in the Heritage Room of the library that regardless of age or skill, Anyone can And then she gave them all an assignment. I challenge you all to go out and make some art this week whether its a pie or a painting, she said. Then she added, almost making a promise, The result may surprise you! Lauras dad, Elam Stoltzfus, echoed her comments before introducing his work. He and his wife believe its important to give creative freedom to children. Let them draw on the bathroom wall...Its art, after all, he said before beginning to speak about his own creative pursuits. Elams art can grace the wall of anyone He has produced several Florida-based known Florida fine arts photographer Clyde Butcher. Another of his subjects was the late songwriter Will McLean, who wrote and recorded Tates Hell, a song about a Liberty County man who gets lost in the woods of Franklin County. He has also done shorter videos on naturalist Jim Fowler. He is best known for documenting Floridas wild areas like the Everglades, the states aquatic preserves, and, closer to home, the Apalachicola River. He completed, Kissimmee Basin: the Northern Everglades. He served as producer, director and cinematographer for the project. His goal is not to preach against progress but simply take the viewer along for the ride as he glides through Floridas waterways in a kayak, talks with generations of families who have lived along the banks and shares the beauty of the states endangered areas. You dont just watch an Elam Stoltzfus Silhouetted cypress trees give way to a sunrise that sets large clumps of Spanish As he paddles through the water with his camera tripod mounted to the front of his kayak, the marsh grass parts, birds soar and clouds roll before his lens. His work includes much juggling of schedules, arranging travel routes, scouting camping sites and setting up camera equipment. His goal? To take time to understand the earth, he told the group gathered at the library Saturday. Its an unusual job that takes patience, a supportive family and plenty of mosquito spray. We get to meet all kinds of people, places and animals, he said. Seventy people were interviewed for his new project which resulted in about 600 transcribed pages for the video he is making on the Florida Wildlife Corridor. The project took a year and a half to plan. He left his Calhoun County home on Jan. 13 and didnt come back until the end of May. We covered 1000 miles in 100 days, he said. He and his crew traveled by kayak, horseback and often hiked as they made their way from the Everglades into the Okefenokee Swamp. During one three-day period, they were so isolated they had little communication with the outside world other than a daily They were joined by friends, family and interview subjects on more hospitable sections of their journey. At one point, Elam was joined by Ben Yoder of Blountstown. They spent a lot of time walking and enjoyed lengthy conversations, an experience that prompted Elam to tell his audience Saturday: I think you could solve some of lifes issues if you would just take some time to walk with a friend. Jeremiah Tadpole closed the evening by playing a 1920s tenor saxophone, an instrument he has been devoted to since the age of 14. Jeremiah works at Calhoun County Institution but when hes not on the job, he pursues his passion for music. It kept me sane and kept me out of trouble, he said about learning to play the saxophone. He said that when he was younger, I learned how to play the blues but Im too much of a happy guy to play it now. He pointed out that the saxophone is a versatile instrument, telling his audience, Believe it or not, you can play country and gospel on it. He proved it with a rendition of How Great Thou Art. When he finished his instrumental version of the hymn, he joked with listeners, telling them, There are three other verses but it sounds the same. As he performed, images from one of Elams videos played across the screen of a wall-mounted television behind him. He also performed Josh Grobans You Raise Me Up, Rod Stewarts Have I Told You Lately That I Love You, and Three Dog Nights Joy to the World. He said the heart is more important than the mind when learning to make music. My musical ear developed early, he said. As long as I have a tune in my head, I can pull it through this thing, he said, holding up the saxophone. Jeremiah grew up without a father but found a role model in his music teacher. Learning to play the saxophone gave him a in the world that was all his own. _______________________________ For more information, to order videos or to keep up with Elams next adventure, check the following websites, pages and feeds: FACEBOOK: TWITTER: Page 12 AUGUST 15, 2012 AUGUST 15, 2012 Page 13 THE ARTS Student, lmmaker and musician share their creative spirit at Library Arts EventThe process of making art gives me time to think and reflect.

The National Forests in Florida L eadership T eam hosted the event with law all three National Forests attending, which include the Apalachicola, Osceola and to a full buffet luncheon with Forest Supervisor Susan Jeheber-Matthews, her staff and District Rangers from each of the forests. Forest Service law enforcement officers are charged with protecting and assisting the public in all the National Forests throughout the country, in addition to the protection of natural resources and property within the authority and jurisdiction of the USDA Forest Service. Law enforcement is fully integrated into all National Forest S ystem resource management programs. We couldnt carry out our programs, without your presence out there, said Matthews in her remarks With over 193 million acres of forests and grasslands to protect, the USDA L aw E nforcement and Investigations program employs over 800 highly trained law enforcement officers nationwide. For ing the Forest Service law enforcement mission is a collaboration between other agency employees along with local, state and federal organizations. M atthews said, When I was a ranger in Idaho and California, some of my best days were out with my law enforcement folks. It made me appreciate what they had to deal with on a daily basis. District Rangers from all three National Forests frontline efforts and their commitment to service. In addition, Kelada Bennett, the new patrol captain for the National Forests in Florida was introduced and welcomed by the Florida Leadership T eam and fellow Forest S ervice law Im happy to be here in Florida with this top-notch team of law enforcement the forests recognition of our efforts, said Bennett.

Harris and Donaldson along with National Forests in Florida and investigators were of appreciation and gifts from Forest S upervisor Matthews. I think its great that the forest as a whole can acknowledge the work that law enforcement and investigations do for Florida, said H arris.

All Ive got to say is that its just awesome to be acknowledged, said Patrol Thursday, Aug. 9.

I am writing this before the results of the election are known. Thank you for the opportunity of serving you. I would also like to thank former Chief of Police Winston Deason for giving me my start in law enforcement, former Sheriff Buddy Smith and Sheriff David Tatum for the many opportunities they have afforded me over the past 29 years. I would like to especially thank those of you who put your in me during the campaign process. Your support and words of encouragement were greatly appreciated. I would like to compliment Chief Kimbrel, his family and supporters for a well run campaign. Chief Kimbrel served our community for 35 years and I respect his service. Many times during a campaign, emotions and feelings become strained or hurt. I encourage you to remember that our country is based on Christian beliefs, individual differences and the Democratic process. This is what separates us from the rest of the world and at the end of the day we are all here trying to serve our community. If I can be of any service to you, please dont hesitate to ask. God bless you. Sincerely,Roman Wood Roman WoodforSHERIFF Fair, Qualified, HonestThe political season is fast approaching and I would like to introduce myself to you.

One of my fathers friends, Gene Richards, was driving his boat a little too fast in that stretch one day and got distracted by the behemoth sunning on the bank. As a result, he hit a cypress knee and He said the last thing he saw before going in was the gator sliding into the water. Someone asked, What did you do? Gene said, Let me put it like this: I got to the bank so fast that the money in my wallet wasnt wet. No one that I know of ever measured that old gator, but most folks agreed he was as long as a boat. In those days, that meant about 12 to 14 feet long. And he was the biggest one I had ever heard of. Until now, that is. My friend, Lane Stephens, a Tallahassee lobbyist who also serves as a nuisance alligator trapper in Gadsden County, was called out on August 11 to get rid of a big gator on Lake Talquin. What one Ive ever seen in my 47 years as a Floridian. At 14 feet long, he is genuinely as big as most than a thousand pounds, about twice as heavy. At that size, other alligators, deer, wild hogs, dogs and other animals become easy prey. While most gators will shy away from contact, some get too familiar with us or grow so large that they lose their natural fear. Thats why hunters like Lane are frequently called to remove them. When you see a gator, the best thing to do is admire him from a distance. Remember that its against the law to feed them, catch them or otherwise disturb them. If one is too close for comfort or has gotten too familiar, call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at (866) FWC-GATOR and report it to them. They rely on licensed experts like Lane out there who know how to remove nuisance gators without getting hurt. And if Gene Richards was still around, hed gator is the last thing you want to do. Youll see viral videos on the Web that present large saltwater crocodiles as alligators. Some folks will tell you theyve seen gators twice that size. And there are shows like Swamp People that use clever camera angles and photography to make the gators appear larger than they really and scales come out, youll see very few that are actually this big.

Social and political ideology is whatever a person wants it to be. Ideologues mold, shape and massage their ideologies into whatever they wish in order to espouse their beliefs to their fellow man. While people are entitled to their beliefs, they are not entitled to force their social and political beliefs on others. Particularly, in a representative democracy, they are not entitled to use government to force their beliefs on others. My reading of the Federalist Papers and origins of the Constitution lead me to believe that James Madisons idea of representative government meant that electAmerica, not in the best interest of extremists, either from the left or right. But, the Congress is governing in the extremist mode. The House is dominated by right-wing extremists, particularly the Tea Party hacks whose only interest is defeating President Obama by closing down the government. They have no interest in governing in the best interest of the America people. House Republicans have voted 37 times to repeal ObamaCare, but refuse to vote on Obamas jobs bill that would put people to work on Americas crumbling infrastructure. Florida has hundreds of bridges in the unsafe category needing maintenance. The House Republican jobs bills are about removing restrictions on business. Close down the Environmental Protection Agency. EPAs pesky rules protecting clean air just get in the way of the job creators creating jobs. Right! House Republicans spend most of their time passing anti-abortion legislation. Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican Minority Leader in the Senate, has a stated goal of limiting President Obama to one term. Senate Republicans have used American. The net result of Republican hatred of anything Obama has brought America to its knees. But, things can get worse with the election of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as president and vice president. In my view, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romneys vice president selection, has into a Third-World nationa few rich people and a lot of poor people. Why? Because the Ryan Plan is the Ronald ReaganGeorge W. Bush economic plans on steroids. The numTrends in the Distribution of Household Income, 19792009. These statistics are the best proof that trickledown economics do not work. Prosperity, is to continue the trickle down economic theory that President Reagan and the Bushes have foisted on the American people which has thoroughly corrupted Madisons concept of representative government. President Franklin Roosevelts New Deal social programs have stuck in the Republican craw since the Roosevelt era. For whatever reasons that only a psychiatrist can fathom, Republicans dont like social programs. They particularly dont like government sponsored social programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Apparently, they dont believe that government has any role in American society. If elected president and vice president, Romney and Ryan are going to end the New Deal social programs. They plan to drive a stake through the heart of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Family Foundation have both analyzed Ryans Medicare plan. Before the American people buy this pig in a poke, they should read these documents along with many other analyses of the Ryan Medicare plan. In short, the Romney government gives you a voucher of some unknown amount, and you buy your own Medicare insurance. Even the least informed person would recognize that insurance companies expect to make a Here is a real test for the Romney-Ryan Medicare voucher plan. A relative of mine has cancer. He was operated on in one of the Souths large, well-known hospitals. He was in the hospital for two weeks at $10,000 per day. He will receive two chemo treatments per month for six months. Each treatment is a three-day event. After the chemo treatment, he will have an operation to reattach his small and large intestines. When all is said and done, close to $500,000 will have been spent. He has one of those Health Savings Accounts. He medical procedure. In his case, his medical insurance voucher and buy an insurance policy that will pay for a cancer operation and chemo treatments. I dont have a problem with the intent of the Ryan equilibrium. I agree that the Tax Code should be simpliWhat I disagree with is the trickle-down economic theory. It does not work. We all should pay an appropriate tax rate. If we want social programs, then pay for it. Politicians should have the backbone to tell we the people to ante up if they want social services or if they want to go to war. cal crisis is not complicated. Its only complicated for the economically ignorant who cant understand cash in, cash out. The Ryan plan to trash social programs to give tax deductions to the job creators is dumb as dirt.

AUGUST 15, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 11 by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorIn the five and a half years they had lived there, Mike Nichols said he and his wife Holly had always been a little concerned about a big live oak next to their rental home on NE Fuqua Circle in Altha. It was a huge tree that spanned the whole length of the house. We knew a branch was above our bedroom, he said. But the tree was green and seemed to be thriving. When his wife left for work Tuesday morning before 7:30 a.m., Mike stayed in bed half-asleep while listening out for his three-year-old son, Jaedon, who was watching cartoons in the living room. He heard a few things tumble onto the roof. And then there was another more ominous sound. Once I heard the thing to do was grab my boy and get out. He ran into the living room and scooped up his son. They were coming out of the brick home when they heard a big booming noise as the tree fell. The impact tore out about a third of the roof, knocked in three feet of insulation and propelled a 2x4 into the mattress. The board jabbed into the bed where I had been, Mike said. Had he not gotten out when he did, It probably would have gone through my leg or stomach. His son was unscathed but had he been following his usual routine, that might not have been the case. Mikes mother was coming to meet them for breakfast that morning so Holly had left Jaedon in the living room to greet her. But any other day, Jaedon would wake up, go into his parents room and sit at the foot of their bed to watch cartoons. After the tree gave way, that whole area of the bedroom was covered in limbs, 2x4s and debris. After the crash you couldnt even see the t.v., said Mike. He said he found himself standing outside in his shorts, holding his son. When it seemed the tree had settled, he put Jaedon in his truck and went inside to grab a pair of pants and get a phone to call for help. It was such a blur, going from half-asleep to getting out of the house, Mike said. Friends and neighbors were quick to respond. His fellow Red Level Lodge Free Masons arrived with chainsaws within an hour and a half but had to wait for an insurance adjuster he said. A member of the Waldorff family donated a storage shed so they would have a place to gather the few things they could salvage. And then came a downpour. It was perfectly calm this morning, Mike said, Then just two hours later, it rained horribly. By Tuesday afternoon, they were settled in an area motel room and arent quite sure what their next move is. It was a pretty eventful morning, but hes not worried. Weve got a lot of family members and a lot of support. Im glad Mike jumped when he did and there was a brick wall, said Millie Williams, who owns the property and is Hollys aunt. Apparently the tree was rotten in the center and you can see through it to the trunk, she said. She plans to rebuild and they hope to return to the property. Its where they started their married life and This is where we brought our baby home, Mike said. talking about the big boom! he heard. His only worry was getting in trouble for the big mess the tree had made. Once he learned he was off the hook, he quickly settled in to their new accommodations and was already enjoying the motel pool Tuesday afternoon.Fallen tree destroys Altha home TT uesday morning with some wet and wild water fun July 31 and August 1.

Story and photos by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor Laura Stoltzfus describes it as inspirational, intensely personal and a way to explore different worlds. Its the reason that as a child, she was allowed to draw on the bathroom walls. Its why her parents did not punish her when their little girl decided to use a purple magic marker to enhance her eyebrows. As a teenager, it inspired her to drench her tresses with a rainbow of hair coloring products. And as a 20-year-old young woman studying Communication at FSU, it propels her in many directions: Painting, writing and speaking. It is empowering, transformative and... well, kinda fun. Its art. Or, as Laura would put it, ART Laura set the tone for Saturday evenings gathering at the Blountstown Librarys Arts Event as she described how appreciative she was to be raised by parents whose example taught her to value her own creativity. I grew up surrounded by art. My father (filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus) taught me the beauty of landscapes, she said. My mother (Esther Stoltzfus) transformed things with stories and her words. She and her brother, Nic, were allowed to learn about art as an everyday process. To hear her describe it, art is not something special, its something essential to ones own well-being. I grew up thinking being creative was normal, she said. Because of that, perhaps, she sees art in everything. She used it to guide her through some angstridden teenage years, she said, explaining, Doing art was an outlet...a way to share, feel and express things. As shes grown, shes found a way to use it to sort out her thoughts. The process of making art gives me time to think and my mind to think in a different way...my mind becomes unstuck. And she finds it helps her connect with the world. I can look at the art of someone who speaks a different language, or lived 100 years ago, and understand their feelings. She told the audience gathered in the Heritage Room of the library that regardless of age or skill, Anyone can And then she gave them all an assignment. I challenge you all to go out and make some art this week whether its a pie or a painting, she said. Then she added, almost making a promise, The result may surprise you! Lauras dad, Elam Stoltzfus, echoed her comments before introducing his work. He and his wife believe its important to give creative freedom to children. Let them draw on the bathroom wall...Its art, after all, he said before beginning to speak about his own creative pursuits. Elams art can grace the wall of anyone He has produced several Florida-based known Florida fine arts photographer Clyde Butcher. Another of his subjects was the late songwriter Will McLean, who wrote and recorded Tates Hell, a song about a Liberty County man who gets lost in the woods of Franklin County. He has also done shorter videos on naturalist Jim Fowler. He is best known for documenting Floridas wild areas like the Everglades, the states aquatic preserves, and, closer to home, the Apalachicola River. He completed, Kissimmee Basin: the Northern Everglades. He served as producer, director and cinematographer for the project. His goal is not to preach against progress but simply take the viewer along for the ride as he glides through Floridas waterways in a kayak, talks with generations of families who have lived along the banks and shares the beauty of the states endangered areas. You dont just watch an Elam Stoltzfus Silhouetted cypress trees give way to a sunrise that sets large clumps of Spanish As he paddles through the water with his camera tripod mounted to the front of his kayak, the marsh grass parts, birds soar and clouds roll before his lens. His work includes much juggling of schedules, arranging travel routes, scouting camping sites and setting up camera equipment. His goal? To take time to understand the earth, he told the group gathered at the library Saturday. Its an unusual job that takes patience, a supportive family and plenty of mosquito spray. We get to meet all kinds of people, places and animals, he said. Seventy people were interviewed for his new project which resulted in about 600 transcribed pages for the video he is making on the Florida Wildlife Corridor. The project took a year and a half to plan. He left his Calhoun County home on Jan. 13 and didnt come back until the end of May. We covered 1000 miles in 100 days, he said. He and his crew traveled by kayak, horseback and often hiked as they made their way from the Everglades into the Okefenokee Swamp. During one three-day period, they were so isolated they had little communication with the outside world other than a daily They were joined by friends, family and interview subjects on more hospitable sections of their journey. At one point, Elam was joined by Ben Yoder of Blountstown. They spent a lot of time walking and enjoyed lengthy conversations, an experience that prompted Elam to tell his audience Saturday: I think you could solve some of lifes issues if you would just take some time to walk with a friend. Jeremiah Tadpole closed the evening by playing a 1920s tenor saxophone, an instrument he has been devoted to since the age of 14. Jeremiah works at Calhoun County Institution but when hes not on the job, he pursues his passion for music. It kept me sane and kept me out of trouble, he said about learning to play the saxophone. He said that when he was younger, I learned how to play the blues but Im too much of a happy guy to play it now. He pointed out that the saxophone is a versatile instrument, telling his audience, Believe it or not, you can play country and gospel on it. He proved it with a rendition of How Great Thou Art. When he finished his instrumental version of the hymn, he joked with listeners, telling them, There are three other verses but it sounds the same. As he performed, images from one of Elams videos played across the screen of a wall-mounted television behind him. He also performed Josh Grobans You Raise Me Up, Rod Stewarts Have I Told You Lately That I Love You, and Three Dog Nights Joy to the World. He said the heart is more important than the mind when learning to make music. My musical ear developed early, he said. As long as I have a tune in my head, I can pull it through this thing, he said, holding up the saxophone. Jeremiah grew up without a father but found a role model in his music teacher. Learning to play the saxophone gave him a in the world that was all his own. _______________________________ For more information, to order videos or to keep up with Elams next adventure, check the following websites, pages and feeds: FACEBOOK: TWITTEER: Page 12 AAUGUStT 15, 2012 A AUGUStT 15, 2012 / Page 13 THE ARTS Student, lmmaker and musician share their creative spirit at Library Arts EventThe process of making art gives me time to think and reflect.

Building a solid foundation for learning is the key to success for Floridas students, said Commissioner of Education Gerard Robinson. Our states VPK program helps children develop essential skills so that they can perform better and be successful in kindergarten and later in life. I encourage Floridas families to take this opportunity to enrich their childs education by starting early with VPK. The VPK program is available at no cost to children who are four years old by September 1 of the program year.
