After seeing the group enter the locked structure, the owner took the boat they had used to get to it and left them stranded. And then he went looking for the law. Arrested on charges of criminal mischief under $200 and burglary of a dwelling was Cassey Shandale Marks, 25, of Airton, AL; Curtis Lipford, 41, of Marianna and Woodrow Pug Jr. Carr, 51, of Altha. According to the arrest report, the three had gone to the home of the houseboat owners grandson and asked that he call to get permission for them to use the houseboat. There had been an earlier understanding that they could use the houseboat only if accompanied by the owners grandson. While the grandson was gathering his belongings, the three hooked up a small boat that was at his home and drove off, taking the boat and leaving him behind. The owner was alerted and went to check on his property. He saw people leaving the landing and going to the houseboat, where it appeared they tried unsuccessfully to pry open a door. A window was broken to gain entrance. A short time later, the lights came on inside the boat. It was later found that bolt cutters were used to break the hasp off the lock that secured the houseboats generator. Officers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission joined Major Michael Bryant and Sgt. Jared Nichols of the Calhoun County The three adults and one juvenile were found on the houseboat. The adults were unable to give statements about the incident due to being heavily intoxicated, the arrest report noted. Marks is being held on a probation violation. Bond was set at $3,000 each for Carr and Lipford. The juvenile, the daughter of Marks, was released into the custody of her grandmother.WOODROW CARR, JR CUR TIS LIPFORD CASSEY S.

To paraphrase Mark Twain, There are lies, there are damn lies, and there is the American political process. The Republican convention in Tampa was all hot air, promises never to be kept, demagoguery, trash talking and please elect Mitt Romney, the savior of mankind, and if you dont elect Mitt, you will all die and go straight to Hell. Will the Democratic convention in Charlotte, NC be any different? Not likely. In my view, with the advent of 24-hour television news, political conventions are a waste of time and money. No, I dont need an infomercial to introduce Mitt Romney or President Obama. I got it. Obama came from a poor beginning and Romney was born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth. Luck of the draw. No, I dont need to know that Ms. Romney raised possible that Ms. Romney had a little help from nannies, housekeepers, cooks and gardeners? I think so. My wife raised four children, all born in military hosa nanny, housekeeper, cook or bottle washer. My wife did all that which is what happens with 99% of American housewives. If you would like to know what life is all about, talk with a single mom with a house full of children. For me, an alarming aspect of the current political system is its inability to deal with reality. Instead of facdisaster plan of cutting taxes and borrowing money. The basic problem is that American voters will believe any pie in the sky theory that they can have all the that America will grow its way out of the recession, and there will be a chicken in every pot. People believe revenue to balance the annual budget and begin reducis not going to happen. The reason is that the international marketplace inCalifornia citrus growers? It means less demand for industry. Romneys political message is that President Obama is a doofus, so elect me, Mitt Romney, and I will save America. (Drumroll please) They might not like him or his views, but at least people know for what President Obama stands. Romney has been on every side plus top and bottom of every issue. Whatever the issue, Romney has been for it and agin it at some point. Whichever way the wind blows that is the direction Mitt Romney is going. Wars on borrowed money. War cost were never in the budget, off the books, as they say. Ryan voted for the unfunded Medicare Part D prescription pills bill. Ryan claimed that President Obama because Ryan was on this committee and led the House revolt that killed the committee recommendations. This is basic math and economics. There was a budtrillion with their tax cuts and wars on credit. in the hopper, thanks to the idiotic trickle down ecoIn spite of the Romney lie that Obama raised taxes on cant. Neither can President Obama. Consumer decome, they spend it thereby creating demand. This is a simple economic fact that is lost on 99% of politicians and the American people. need politicians with enough backbone to tell we the people that if we want it, then pay for it.

SEPTEMBER 5, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 11 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Christie loves ChristieWASHINGTON The morning after he delivered the keynote speech at the Republican convention, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was the featured speaker at a breakfast hosted by the New Hampshire dential primary makes perfect sense for Christie, whose presidential aspirations are an open secret. It took him 16 and a half minutes into his 24-minute speech to get around to mentioning the Romney-Ryan ticket, the reason he was on the stage in Tampa. He come-from-nothing boyhood, his strong mother (I am her son), and his record of accomplishment working across the aisle with Democrats in New Jersey. He mentioned Romney a mere six times and his closing call to conventiongoers to stand with me seemed more about promoting himself than the national ticket. Stand with us would have been more appropriate. He did omit his usual boast about the New Jersey miracle, since its looking a bit frayed with its high unemployment. But he did take credit for reining in the teachers unions and for telling the truth about overburdened entitlements. Just about every speaker at the convention extolled their standard-bearers, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, tion and facing up to the tough decisions that must be made. The Republicans if elected would provide leadership that delivers, Christie declared. Exactly what the Republicans would do different from the Democrats is deliberately short on details, since spelling out what spending cuts they would make while cutting taxes and raising the defense budget as Romney is promising would take budget jujitsu of Claiming youre telling the hard truths while avoidthe Romney-Ryan campaign. Were not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers, Romney pollster Neil Newhouse said after the Obama campaign complained that an ad roundly denounced as false was airing multiple times in swing states. The ad claims that the Obama administration has waived the work requirements for welfare recipients, a statement that plays into the biases of white working class voters, a group that is a declining share of the electorate but which Romney must win decisively to compensate for President Obamas margin with minority voters. Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, in accepting his partys nomination for vice president, continued the GOPs charade with the facts. He faulted Obama for the closing of a GE plant in his hometown of Janesville, WI, when the plant closed months before Obama took in taking up the recommendations of the SimpsonRyan, as a member of the commission voted against its conclusions. The delegates assembled in Tampa love Christie and his Jersey swagger and theyre over the moon for Ryan, a fervent ideologue who portrays Obama as making us a country where everything is free but us, an assertion so over the top it could have come from one of the Ayn Rand novels that shaped Ryans thinking and that he recommends his staffers read. Of the two, Ryan is better veep material; Christie couldnt have sublimated himself to Romney. Other contenders on Romneys short list Ohios John Portman, Wisconsins Tim Pawlenty and New Hampshires Kelly Ayotte, demonstrated why they didnt get the nod by delivering less than inspiring speeches, which is why love him or hate him Ryan is on the ticket and Christie cares more about positioning himself winning the White House in November.

SEPTEMBER 5, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 19 Okay, so there are about a thousand places online and hundreds more in print that offer sound, practical advice about what to do to get ready for a hurricane. These are well-researched, thorough guidelines that are designed to keep you and your loved ones safe. This is not one of those. Instead, this is a more realistic hurricane prep story thats based on my very recent experience in the days and hours ahead of our most recent storm, Isaac. Youll notice that my actual preparation varies in credible sources. And I have to say that none of what follows is advice. Its more of a timeline/recap of the meticulous planning that helped my family and me survive Isaacs wrath here in Pensacola. FIVE DAYS OUT Complete ignorance and bliss. FOUR DAYS OUT Become vaguely aware of Jim Cantore on television being rained on somewhere. THREE DAYS OUT Newspaper runs giant forecast map. Glance and see that were in the cone of uncertainty. TWO DAYS OUT Realize most models show hurricane aiming directly at my front door. Announce to family that we need to get prepared. Wind up refereeing argument about whose turn it is to do laundry. 36 HOURS OUT Begin making preparation list. Remember theres already one on my computer. Turn on laptop and immediately get distracted by YouTube 30 HOURS OUT Fall asleep watching Duck Dynasty. 24 HOURS OUT Remember hurricane. Decide to test generator 23 HOURS OUT Locate generator under piles of junk in the garage. 22 HOURS OUT Entirely rearrange garage to free generator. Unsuccessful attempt to start. 21.5 HOURS OUT Put gas in generator. Unsuccessful attempt to start. 21 HOURS OUT Fight crowds at Lowes to get new spark plug and starter 19 HOURS OUT Get home, replace spark plug and administer liberal dose of 18.5 HOURS OUT Curse the names of Briggs and Stratton. Put band-aid on blistered hand. 18 HOURS OUT Remember on/off switch and turn to on position. 17.99 HOURS OUT Generator starts. 16 HOURS OUT Sleep. 12 HOURS OUT Wake up and remember I need gasoline, propane, few other items. 11 HOURS OUT Make shopping list. Head out for supplies. 9 HOURS OUT Find store with gasoline. 8 HOURS OUT Have gasoline. Still need other items. 7.5 HOURS OUT In Publix and realize I forgot list. Go from memory. 6.5 HOURS OUT Check out with $100 in groceries, but forget flashlight batteries, bottled water and a few other items. 6 HOURS OUT Fighting crowd at Lowes. Cant remember which batteries are needed. Buy cheap flashlights and batteries. Remember other items I needed from Publix. 5 HOURS OUT Check out with $100 of assorted items from Lowes. 4 HOURS OUT Unload stuff from store. Notice Jim Cantore is in New Orleans. 3.5 HOURS OUT Watch news and realize hurricane has turned west. 2.5 HOURS OUT Heavy rains and strong winds. Realize I forgot coffee. Head back to store. 2 HOURS OUT Spend another $50 on miscellaneous items at Publix. Head home feeling fully prepared. 1.5 HOURS OUT Unload car in downpour. 1 HOUR OUT Rain stops completely. .5 HOURS OUT Watch news. Realize hurricane warning for Pensacola was lifted hours ago. LANDF ALL Two bands of rain. Gusty breeze. DAY 2 Realize I now own about 20 water with the other four cases I bought last year. D AY 3 Make a mental note to remember all this the next time a hurricane comes. DAY 4 Forget about hurricane.

They can also cause safety issues down the line, such as mold or mildew accumulation on walls, breeding grounds for insects, or even sink holes. It's important to ensure proper drainage occurs around a home. Storm water runoff is a big culprit when it comes to drainage issues. Over time storm water can erode soft surfaces and redirect water to places where it doesn't belong. Also, improperly graded concrete work or misplaced landscaping items can create water pooling in undesirable areas. Other items used in a landscape can create trouble. Mulch or wood chip decorative accents can wash away during storms and clog drains or create water ruts.
