CHAIRTY FURR Journal EditorLOWRY One man is dead and the woman who called 911 for help and exclaimed, I just shot my boyfriend, was arrested for his murder Friday night in Liberty County. Chairty Furr, 34, was charged with body of Cliff Sloat on the ground in front of a home in the tiny community of Lowry on Hwy. 65, north of Hosford. A friend of the couple, Lee Fletcher, was giving Sloat chest compressions when deputies got on scene at 7:44 p.m. Deputy Cory Fletcher assisted with CPR until the ambulance arrived. EMTs took over efforts to keep Sloats heart going before transporting him to the emergency room at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital. Furr sat outside of the front door of the home as investigators examined the yard where he was found. She was covered in blood and kept repeating loudly, I love that man, according to the arrest report from The Liberty County Sheriffs She later told deputies, I didnt mean to shoot him. I just wanted to scare him because he was being mean. Both had been drinking. Furr was later found to have a blood alcohol level of .228, almost three times the legal limit of .08, according to the arrest report. Sloat, who had been shot once in the chest with a blast from a .22-caliber over .410 gauge shotgun, was pronounced dead at 8:50 p.m. The two men were struggling to keep Sloat alive while the ambulance was en route when Deputy Amanda King arrived and approached Furr. He was found lying on the ground between a parked truck and a motorcycle in front of the residence at 13622 NE SR 65, about eight feet from the front porch.

A Blountstown man was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after he allegedly pistol-whipped a Bristol man, breaking the socket of his right eye. John Ammons, 19, was taken into custody Sept. 4. He was later released on $20,000 bond. Liberty County Sheriffs Deputy Adam Walker was called to the emergency room at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital that day after a badly-injured man was dropped off. The deputy found 31-year-old Joseph Lambeth with a large contusion on his right eye. Lambeth was heavily sedated at that time and unable to explain what had happened to him until later. Walker learned that Lambeth had been hurt at 12862 NW Central Avenue, the residence of his children and their mother, Leah D. Paquette, 24. Paquette gave the deputy a statement which she later admitted was not true. Her version of events was also disputed by witnesses. The deputy eventually determined that John Ammons and Robert T. Summers, 21, of Bristol, were at Paquettes residence when Lambeth was hurt. The victim gave a statement that he had gone to Paquettes home that morning to see his children and give her child support money. He borrowed her phone to call his boss and realized he had left his money in his truck. When he started to walk back to the vehicle, the two of them got in an argument. He then left for work and after he drove away, he realized he still had Paquettes phone when it rang. When he answered it, a friend of hers cursed at him for taking it. He said he did so by accident and would bring it right back. When he returned to her home, Lambeth was met at the door by Paquette and Summers, who was holding one of the children, which upset him. Lambeth said he had her phone and asked to see the kids. Summers then told him to leave and the two men began arguing. Lambeth said he heard someone come up behind him and turned around to see Ammons pointing a black revolver at him. When Lambeth asked if he was going to shoot him, Ammons put the gun in his pocket. When Lambeth asked Paquette why this was going on, Ammons struck him and Summers joined in, according to the arrest report. Lambeth was knocked to the ground and was trying to hold off the two men. He said Ammons told him to look at him and when he did, Ammons grabbed him by the hair and started punching him in the face. Lambeth said he was getting up on his knees when Ammons started hitting him with the pistol. Lambeth, Paquette and Summers all swore that Ammons hit Lambeth with the gun. The incident is still being investigated and further charges may be pending.

She said she had a couple of shots of alcohol before they went to her home and shared a $20 piece of crack cocaine. She said Gatlin came on to her but she rebuffed him. He then got up and went to her bathroom. She said that when he returned, he had a knife and held it to her throat. She said he threatened to kill her grandfather, who was sleeping in the next room, if she did not cooperate. The two had sex; she said he used a condom, which he then left behind, along with the knife. The woman said she believes he took her bicycle when he left and may have also stolen her purse and cell phone. A sexual assault kit was used to collect evidence from the victim. When Gatlin was later questioned at the police department, he admitted he had sex with the woman but denied raping her. He said he never touched a knife but did say he left a condom at her home and added, That was where I messed up. A buccal swab was taken for possible DNA evidence comparison. He was arrested and is being held without bond. JOHN AMMONS continued on page 11

Doyle served as chairman of The Great Florida Cattle Drive of 95 that included cow hunters who drove 1000 head of Spanish type cattle across Florida in celebration of Floridas 150 years of statehood. For many years he has collected and restored the trappings of the cowboy lifestyle saddles, bridles, boots, chaps, saddlebags, etc. and many of his restorations are on display in museums throughout the United States and Europe. This presentation will take you back to a time, place and lifestyle that meant a great deal to the development, history and culture of the State of Florida. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy this interesting program. Since the early 1800s the cattle industry has certainly been connected with Gadsden County. We look forward to seeing you there.

The sale will be held at the Capital Area Chapter on 1115 Easterwood Drive near Tom Brown Park and beside the animal shelter in Tallahassee. Hurricane lilies or lycoris are also known as surprise lilies, red spider lilies or naked ladies. They bloom after fall rains in September and often visit Florida, thus earning their nickname. Unlike most plants, the bulbs bloom before they have leaves, which remain green all winter, then die back in the summer before the bulbs bloom again in the fall. Lycoris radiata is the red variety. They can be planted in sun or shade. The cost is $2 per bulb for lycoris radiata or six for $10. Daylilies require a sunny loca tion but otherwise need little care. They may bloom anytime from their leaves except in a hard freeze. Buyers may pre-order packs of six different bare root daylilies, locally grown and ready to plant, for $10 or 12 for $20. Larger orders will include more different colors. Plants may also be picked up by appointment only at Mittan Botanical Gardens at 11398 Buck Lake Road until September 20. All proceeds go to the American Red Cross. Cash sales only. Tax is included in the price. To order daylilies or lycoris, please contact J. B. Mittan at bar rymittan@gmail.com.

Page 10 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL SEPTEMBER 12, 2012by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorIt seems like it would be a lot of fun. Bid on a storage locker full of unclaimed items, sort em out and see what you can sell and make a little money on. Clay Knight and his wife, Lana, had been waiting a long time to do just that. They were excited when they went to Pensacola a couple of weeks locker. But months of watching the popular Storage Wars series on A&E TV didnt prepare them for what they found. Body parts. Lots and lots of body parts. One hundred and eleven, to be exact. A VISIT TO UNCLE BOBS The trick to buying abandoned property stuffed into rental lockers minutes to look it over from outside before the bidding starts. When Clay, his wife and her son went to the auction at Uncle Bobs on Aug. 22, they looked on as a couple One auction was quickly halted when the door to the storage was unlocked to reveal a big stash of synthetic marijuana which can no longer be sold in stores, Clay said. They passed on several other units which seemed to promise little of value. But when the doors opened on storage locker B-12, Clay knew it was time to bid. The fact that the auctioneer announced the property belonged to a former medical examiner didnt raise any suspicions for the 20 or so people gathered around to take a look in the 10 x 10 space. I saw two pieces of furniture that were absolutely gorgeous, said Clay, describing twin curio pedestals. He spotted a glass top table with a stone base, a brand new lawn mower and a set of golf clubs. I kind of peeked in and saw what looked like a bronze statute in the corner, he said. It looked like a gargoyle. Perhaps that should have tipped him off as to what was to come. He had already set a $900 limit before making the trip. Im going to bid on this one, he told Lana. He and another man got into a bit of a bidding war but Clay won. The last bid he made was for his limit. He won the lot for $900. After settling his bill with the auctioneer, Clay and his stepson started loading up the furniture and other large items. Once they got the big stuff out, Lana dove in to see what goodies a stack of Oh my gosh! she said as she pulled out a plastic food container that held a human tongue in a clear solution. The container was labeled with a persons name and a description of the item inside. As they took another look in the box, they realized, Everything was body parts, according to Clay. around while they moved furniture they must have spilled some of the formaldehyde. There was no odor when we went in there, he said, but the smell had gotten strong by the time law enforcement came to check it out. I told Lana to leave that stuff in the corner, he said. He went to the we aint touching. boxes contained. Body parts, said Clay. He said they washed their hands and left. They didnt expect to hear anything more about it. They were wrong. A couple of days later, they got a call from the police in Pensacola. Then they started getting phone calls from newspapers in Escambia and Bay counties. Then their story popped up in USA Today and they found other articles about it on the internet. He said he heard their discovery had made a Top 10 list of Worst Things Found in Storage Lockers. THE GRISLY DETAILS The Knights have since learned that the boxes held 111 individual containers of various human remains, in the case against contract medical examiner Michael Edward Berkland. The remains included tissue samples, dissected organs and many whole organs, including hearts, brains, a liver and a lung. the remains were labeled and dated from 1997 through 2007. While half of the containers were said to be medical grade the rest were mostly Ziploc-style plastic sandwich boxes. One sample was left in a 32-ounce styrofoam cup from a local convenience store. The body parts were put in a liquid solution containing formaldehyde and methyl alcohol considered a hazardous material requiring special handling procedures. Sept. 7 and charged with improper disposal/storage of hazardous waste, public nuisance and driving with a suspended license. The improper storage charge constitutes a third degree felony punishable by according to State Attorney William Bill Eddins. The medical examiner leased the storage unit April 18, 2009. He failed to pay rent on the unit at least six times but managed to settle his account just before repossession. He defaulted on the storage site in August and his property was put up for auction. BACK TO THE AUCTION One thing hell keep as a souvenir of that first auction is the medical Berkland worked in Jackson County, Missouri. Thats where he also lost his medical license, according to Clay. The Knight family has since resumed their hobby, going to another auction recently in Panama City. There, Lana fearlessly moved in to sort out the items in a closed box before announcing, There are no body parts in here. in the situation, the Knight family is aware that the discovery will take its toll on relatives of the deceased. Were praying for the families, he said. Theyre going to have to go through this all over again, he said, is contacting families to give some bombarded with phone calls from families wondering it the body parts were those of their relatives who had private autopsies done, he said. Clay said they will continue bidding on property in hopes of finding something of value. Still, its more of a hobby than anything else. Hes on the hunt for valuable baseball cards, Cocahunting gear. His wife loves collecting t-shirts and old tin advertising signs. She loves the thrill of a treasure hunt and gets an adrenalin rush out of it, he said. You never know what He was quick to add, But if I one, itll be the last time I ever bid on one.Altha couple nd boxes of body parts after buying storage locker contents Clay Knight went to the storage facility ofce to tell them there were a few boxes left lled with stuff we aint touching. The ofce worker asked what the boxes contained. Body parts, he said.A 410 shotgun had been dropped on the ground about 18 feet away. Furr said that she and Cliff had been drinking and having a good time that evening until he accused her of sleeping with someone else. I didnt mean to shoot him, she told the deputy. I just wanted to shoot over his head and scare him, but I missed. She added, I love that man. The ambulance arrived, followed by Lt. Shane Geiger. He advised Furr of her rights before speaking further. He replied, No. In a taped statement given while sitting on her front porch with deputies, Furr said, I didnt do anything wrong so I want a lawyer. She told deputies that she and Sloat had been drinking. Earlier that afternoon, friends had visited them. When they left, she said she and Sloat argued. Furr said the gun that had been found in the yard was hers. She stated that she usually kept it just inside the door of her home. She told deputies that while Sloat had not threatened her that day, he had put his hands on me in the past. She was charged with murder based on her admission when she called 911 and due to the lack of evidence to support that he was shot in self-defense, She is being held without bond. scene of the shooting at 9:40 p.m. Blood samples were collected from the grass where Sloat had fallen, from a gray tarp covering a motorcycle in the front yard and from the exterior doorknob from the front door. The gun was also taken by the Liberty County Jail and tested Furr for gunshot residue, photographed her and collected her clothing as evidence. Following an autopsy Saturday, Bay found that the pellet wounds to Sloats right wrist showed he had put his arm up in a defensive reaction when the gun was pointed at him. Pellets were found in Sloats chest cavity and right arm. According to the medical examiners report, Sloat was not shot at point blank range since the pattern of the pellets impact from near his sternum to his shoulder indicated that the projectiles had traveled far enough to spread. for lab analysis. Services for Cliff Sloat will be held Wednesday Sept. 12 at 11 a.m. at Bethel Assembly of God Church in Greensboro. Survivors include his daughters, Cari Marie, Carlyn LeAnn and Caeli Opal Sloat; the mother of his children, Wendy Nicole Sloat; one sister, Amanda Maxine Sloat; one nephew, Easton Earl Jones, all of Telogia, and a host of uncles, aunts and cousins.

Page 12 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL SEPTEMBER 12, 2012 SPORTSby Richard Williams, Journal sports writerDavid came up one stone short of knocking off Goliath. This time Class 1A Liberty County played the role of David up against Class 5A Bay High at Tommy Oliver Stadium in Panama City. The Bulldogs lost 13-12. Bay High was larger than Liberty in many ways, and those ways mattered in the end. Bay outweighed Liberty across the offensive and defensive front, often by more than 100 pounds. While Libertys smaller squad was forced to play most of the team on offense and defense, Class 5A Bay was able to bring out a new cast with every change of possession. Even so Liberty Coach Grant Grantham refused to accept that as the reason for the loss. People always seem to think we are a lot bigger than we really are our guys play big, and hit big, but I think time, so that was really nothing new for us, Grantham said. Im not saying that didnt play a factor, but it was a few mental mistakes, including some things as coaches we need to do better, that made a difference in the end. Liberty took the lead on a ten-yard run by Alex Marlowe. The touchdown capped a drive kept alive by a Hayden Swier tightrope-worthy catch on the sideline. Swier caught the pass from a scrambling Dustin Watson just keeping his toes in bounds as he grabbed the ball. Bay High responded with a long pounding drive of their own and took a 7-6 lead early in the second quarter. Marlowe and the Bulldog special teams made sure the Bay lead didnt last long. On the ensuing kickoff Marlowe the handle. As Marlowe raced up the middle, his blockers opened a seam the LCHS back on the kicker opened the way for Marlowe to complete the 88-yard return. Libertys twopoint conversion came up short and the Bulldogs held a 12-7 lead. In the second half Liberty put together two 13-play drives, but neither drive ended with points on the board. After being stopped, the Tornato take the lead for good with just over four minutes left in the game. Grantham pointed to the play of J.D. Sellers and Landon Bruffett as standing out in the game. He added he was proud of his team, and felt like Liberty had some backups that not only gained more experience but showed they could play. All of the backups we used did really well, they came in and showed they can play and that is something that can help us down the road, Grantham said. The Bulldogs travel to Marianna Friday night to take on the Class 4A Marianna High School. Game time is scheduled for 8 p.m. (ET).

This past Saturday the Lady Wildcats participated in a volleyball tournament at Chipley High School where they competed with many teams, beating Holmes County and losing to Walton. They were placed in the silver division. The Wildcats beat Wewa, moving them to the silver division championship. There we faced Freeport, playing a long, rough match. The Lady Cats fell short with a loss, receiving runner-up in the championship. Coaches Corner: Our season began a little rocky, with game cancellations due to storm as well as some crucial losses. We began the season with a less than stellar performance at the Preseason Classic and continued with two district losses to Wewa and Vernon. Realizing that we had a lot of work ahead of us, we have steadily been practicing and trying to improve in our weaker areas. Our mental game has been our top focus. With each game, we have seen improvements and are continuing on our trek to prepare for the end, after all it is the district playoffs that bring on the championships. Losing early has not made us a weaker team but has surely made us stronger. Our opponents may have counted us out in. We are seeking a district champion as well as much more play beyond the district level! With no seniors, we are fortunate to have a core that will be with us for the next two years. A team comprised of eight juniors and two sophomores is stepping on the court, playing multiple positions us. We were able to avenge our Wewa loss this past weekend at the Chipley tournament, boosting our physical and mental game even more. My team and I realize the quest that is before us and we are willing to work and conquer.

I will make a difference. At its meeting Wednesday in Tampa, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved draft rule amendments regarding falconry, wildlife rehabilitation and taking of wildlife on roads and rights-of-way. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the FWC currently share regulatory authority for this practice, including issuing permits for falconers. However, the USFWS is now relinquishing its responsibilities to states. For falconry to continue to be allowed in Florida, the FWC must amend rules and regulations to meet or exceed federal Service, said Maj. Curtis Brown, who presented the amendments. This includes areas like eligibility requirements for falconers; details regarding possession of golden eagles, requirements for banding, reporting and release of birds, permitting for seasonal residents and visitors, educational display, rehabilitation and possession of prey. In addition to those areas, which must comply with the federal standards, FWC staff also included some new amendments, Brown said. FWC staff held public workshops and worked closely with stakeholders on their needs and concerns to develop the amendments. The topics addressed include claslapsed permits, restoration of suspended or revoked permits; the take, acquisition and transportation of raptors, housing and temporary care, feathers and carcasses of raptors, propagation and the practice of falconry in the vicinity of threatened and endangered species. Commissioners discussed, heard public comment and ultimately approved the draft amendments as presented by staff with the direction for staff to research and consider adding merlins for use by apprentice falconers. The complete draft amendments, which pertain to rules 68A9.005, 69A-9.006 and 68A-4.008, can be viewed online and will be presented for Commission meeting. For more information about falconry regulations, visit MyFWC.com/Rules and select Proposed Rule Changes.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission (FWC), working in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, plans to document where panthers are roaming beyond south Florida and develop the best practices to help people and panthers coexist. The efforts described at the FWCs recent Commission meeting in Tampa would aid a potential northward expansion of the range of breeding panthers as part of the next steps in panther population recovery. Panther expansion northward is going to be, in large part, due to cooperation with private landowners, said Commission Chairman Kenneth Wright. The panther needs a large area to roam, male. In south Florida, panthers have access to federally managed public lands such as Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve and the Panther National Wildlife Refuge in addition to state and privately owned lands. In the southern part of central Florida, a key area for potential expansion of the large cat, more panther habitat is privately owned. We have room for more panther population growth as long as we manage areas successfully, said Commissioner Ronald Bergeron, who suggested it should be a priority both to conserve the core population in south Florida and prepare for expansion north of the Caloosahatchee River. We have to target the heart of where the panthers are, and continue to move forward with good habitat and with underpasses to protect panthers crossing highways. In the coming months, staff said the FWC will be collaborating closely with stakeholders, including private landowners in central Florida, about what information and resources they need to feel prepared for an increased presence of panthers. The Commissioners supported this approach, particularly an exploration of what pantherrelated conservation incentives should be made available to landowners. For expansion, I think we have to see some version of good wildlife corridors or good unfragmented habitat, said Commissioner Aliese Liesa Priddy. We need to get realistic about what our goals should be and what habitat is available. Priddy said continuing the FWCs strong partnership with USFWS to update panther management goals and enhance resources would be critical. She added that building public support for panther expansion also was an important goal. Panthers once ranged across Florida and into seven other southern states. Today most of the panther population is concentrated in south Florida. Adult male panthers, however, have been documented to range throughout central and north Florida. FWC staff has north of the Caloosahatchee River or Lake Okeechobee. The panther population is estimated to adults have left their mothers but not yet reached sexual maturity. The ultimate goal, stated in the recovery plan developed by USFWS in conjunction with the FWC and other partners, is long-term viability of the Florida panther so it no longer is listed as endangered. Currently the FWCs panther manage ment team uses evidence gathered from the capture and tracking of radio-collared panthers, the causes of panther mortalities and documentation of denning mothers to monitor population trends, changes in occupied range and threats to the population. The FWC also is enlisting the help of Florida citizens in collecting more infor mation about the panthers range. A new website developed by the FWC, www. public.myfwc.com/hsc/panthersightings/ getlatlong.aspx, allows people to easily upload photos of panthers and their tracks geographic database. Since use of motion-activated game cameras has become commonplace, People are getting incredible photos of all kinds of wildlife by day and night, said Kipp Frohlich, who leads the FWCs Imperiled Species Management Section. We are really hoping that someone will show real proof of a female or kittens in central or north Florida. That would be really exciting news. animal. All funding for state research and conservation of panthers comes from Florida residents voluntary purchase of the panther specialty license plate.

These changes are anticipated to take effect Veterans Day, The Commission implemented a new program that will modify income requirements for Florida veterans seeking a commercial restricted species endorsement license. The restricted species endorsement allows comfor and sell species that are designated as restricted. Spanish and king mack are among the list of species that require a restricted species endorsement. Currently, commercial harvesters attempting to qualify for a restricted species endorsement license must have a Florida Saltwater Products License, which is Floridas commercial and be able to attribute their total annual income during one of the past three years to sales of saltwater products. With the new changes in place, restricted species endorsement income requirements will be waived for one license year (July veterans who were honor ably discharged between this income requirement waiver will continue to extend to Florida veterans so long as they apply within four years of an honorable discharge. The one-license-year waiver also extends to honorably discharged veterans with service-connected dis abilities.

CHAiIRTY FURR Journal EditorLOWRY One man is dead and the woman who called 911 for help and exclaimed, I just shot my boyfriend, was arrested for his murder Friday night in Liberty County. Chairty Furr, 34, was charged with body of Cliff Sloat on the ground in front of a home in the tiny community of Lowry on Hwy. 65, north of Hosford. A friend of the couple, Lee Fletcher, was giving Sloat chest compressions when deputies got on scene at 7:44 p.m. Deputy Cory Fletcher assisted with CPR until the ambulance arrived. EMTs took over efforts to keep Sloats heart going before transporting him to the emergency room at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital. Furr sat outside of the front door of the home as investigators examined the yard where he was found. She was covered in blood and kept repeating loudly, I love that man, according to the arrest report from The Liberty County Sheriffs She later told deputies, I didnt mean to shoot him. I just wanted to scare him because he was being mean. Both had been drinking. Furr was later found to have a blood alcohol level of .228, almost three times the legal limit of .08, according to the arrest report. Sloat, who had been shot once in the chest with a blast from a .22-caliber over .410 gauge shotgun, was pronounced dead at 8:50 p.m. The two men were struggling to keep Sloat alive while the ambulance was en route when Deputy Amanda King arrived and approached Furr. He was found lying on the ground between a parked truck and a motorcycle in front of the residence at 13622 NE SR 65, about eight feet from the front porch.

A Blountstown man was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after he allegedly pistol-whipped a Bristol man, breaking the socket of his right eye. John Ammons, 19, was taken into custody Sept. 4. He was later released on $20,000 bond. Liberty County Sheriffs Deputy Adam Walker was called to the emergency room at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital that day after a badly-injured man was dropped off. The deputy found 31-year-old Joseph Lambeth with a large contusion on his right eye. Lambeth was heavily sedated at that time and unable to explain what had happened to him until later. Walker learned that Lambeth had been hurt at 12862 NW Central Avenue, the residence of his children and their mother, Leah D. Paquette, 24. Paquette gave the deputy a statement which she later admitted was not true. Her version of events was also disputed by witnesses. The deputy eventually determined that John Ammons and Robert T. Summers, 21, of Bristol, were at Paquettes residence when Lambeth was hurt. The victim gave a statement that he had gone to Paquettes home that morning to see his children and give her child support money. He borrowed her phone to call his boss and realized he had left his money in his truck. When he started to walk back to the vehicle, the two of them got in an argument. He then left for work and after he drove away, he realized he still had Paquettes phone when it rang. When he answered it, a friend of hers cursed at him for taking it. He said he did so by accident and would bring it right back. When he returned to her home, Lambeth was met at the door by Paquette and Summers, who was holding one of the children, which upset him. Lambeth said he had her phone and asked to see the kids. Summers then told him to leave and the two men began arguing. Lambeth said he heard someone come up behind him and turned around to see Ammons pointing a black revolver at him. When Lambeth asked if he was going to shoot him, Ammons put the gun in his pocket. When Lambeth asked Paquette why this was going on, Ammons struck him and Summers joined in, according to the arrest report. Lambeth was knocked to the ground and was trying to hold off the two men. He said Ammons told him to look at him and when he did, Ammons grabbed him by the hair and started punching him in the face. Lambeth said he was getting up on his knees when Ammons started hitting him with the pistol. Lambeth, Paquette and Summers all swore that Ammons hit Lambeth with the gun. The incident is still being investigated and further charges may be pending.

According to the arrest report from the Blountstown Police Department, the victim, 26, said she had spoken with a man near Ward Road the night of Sept. 1. She said she had a couple of shots of alcohol before they went to her home and shared a $20 piece of crack cocaine. She said Gatlin came on to her but she rebuffed him. He then got up and went to her bathroom. She said that when he returned, he had a knife and held it to her throat. She said he threatened to kill her grandfather, who was sleeping in the next room, if she did not cooperate. The two had sex; she said he used a condom, which he then left behind, along with the knife. The woman said she believes he took her bicycle when he left and may have also stolen her purse and cell phone. A sexual assault kit was used to collect evidence from the victim. When Gatlin was later questioned at the police department, he admitted he had sex with the woman but denied raping her. He said he never touched a knife but did say he left a condom at her home and added, That was where I messed up. A buccal swab was taken for possible DNA evidence comparison. He was arrested and is being held without bond. JohnOHN AmmonsMMONS AO continued on page 11

Doyle Connor, Jr., a Florida Cracker historian, poet and storyteller from Monticello will be the guest speaker. He has studied, researched and shared Floridas cow history for more than 20 years. During his service as curator of the Florida Agricultural Museum, he conserved the material artifacts of Floridas heritage and developed a healthy respect for the tough minded individuals who made La Florida what it is today. Doyle served as chairman of The Great Florida Cattle Drive of 95 that included cow hunters who drove 1000 head of Spanish type cattle across Florida in celebration of Floridas 150 years of statehood. For many years he has collected and restored the trappings of the cowboy lifestyle saddles, bridles, boots, chaps, saddlebags, etc. and many of his restorations are on display in museums throughout the United States and Europe. This presentation will take you back to a time, place and lifestyle that meant a great deal to the development, history and culture of the State of Florida. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy this interesting program. Since the early 1800s the cattle industry has certainly been connected with Gadsden County. We look forward to seeing you there.

The sale will be held at the Capital Area Chapter on 1115 Easterwood Drive near Tom Brown Park and beside the animal shelter in Tallahassee. Hurricane lilies or lycoris are also known as surprise lilies, red spider lilies or naked ladies. They bloom after fall rains in September and often visit Florida, thus earning their nickname. Unlike most plants, the bulbs bloom before they have leaves, which remain green all winter, then die back in the summer before the bulbs bloom again in the fall. Lycoris radiata is the red variety. They can be planted in sun or shade. The cost is $2 per bulb for lycoris radiata or six for $10. Daylilies require a sunny location but otherwise need little care. They may bloom anytime from their leaves except in a hard freeze. Buyers may pre-order packs of six different bare root daylilies, locally grown and ready to plant, for $10 or 12 for $20. Larger orders will include more different colors. Plants may also be picked up by appointment only at Mittan Botanical Gardens at 11398 Buck Lake Road until September 20. All proceeds go to the American Red Cross. Cash sales only. Tax is included in the price. To order daylilies or lycoris, please contact J. B. Mittan at barrymittan@gmail.com.

Page 10 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL SEpPTEMBER 12, 2012by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorIt seems like it would be a lot of fun. Bid on a storage locker full of unclaimed items, sort em out and see what you can sell and make a little money on. Clay Knight and his wife, Lana, had been waiting a long time to do just that. They were excited when they went to Pensacola a couple of weeks locker. But months of watching the popular Storage Wars series on A&E TV didnt prepare them for what they found. Body parts. Lots and lots of body parts. One hundred and eleven, to be exact. A VISIT TO UNCLE BOBS The trick to buying abandoned property stuffed into rental lockers minutes to look it over from outside before the bidding starts. When Clay, his wife and her son went to the auction at Uncle Bobs on Aug. 22, they looked on as a couple One auction was quickly halted when the door to the storage was unlocked to reveal a big stash of synthetic marijuana which can no longer be sold in stores, Clay said. They passed on several other units which seemed to promise little of value. But when the doors opened on storage locker B-12, Clay knew it was time to bid. The fact that the auctioneer announced the property belonged to a former medical examiner didnt raise any suspicions for the 20 or so people gathered around to take a look in the 10 x 10 space. I saw two pieces of furniture that were absolutely gorgeous, said Clay, describing twin curio pedestals. He spotted a glass top table with a stone base, a brand new lawn mower and a set of golf clubs. I kind of peeked in and saw what looked like a bronze statute in the corner, he said. It looked like a gargoyle. Perhaps that should have tipped him off as to what was to come. He had already set a $900 limit before making the trip. Im going to bid on this one, he told Lana. He and another man got into a bit of a bidding war but Clay won. The last bid he made was for his limit. He won the lot for $900. After settling his bill with the auctioneer, Clay and his stepson started loading up the furniture and other large items. Once they got the big stuff out, Lana dove in to see what goodies a stack of Oh my gosh! she said as she pulled out a plastic food container that held a human tongue in a clear solution. The container was labeled with a persons name and a description of the item inside. As they took another look in the box, they realized, Everything was body parts, according to Clay. around while they moved furniture they must have spilled some of the formaldehyde. There was no odor when we went in there, he said, but the smell had gotten strong by the time law enforcement came to check it out. I told Lana to leave that stuff in the corner, he said. He went to the we aint touching. boxes contained. Body parts, said Clay. He said they washed their hands and left. They didnt expect to hear anything more about it. They were wrong. A couple of days later, they got a call from the police in Pensacola. Then they started getting phone calls from newspapers in Escambia and Bay counties. Then their story popped up in USA Today and they found other articles about it on the internet. He said he heard their discovery had made a Top 10 list of Worst Things Found in Storage Lockers. THE GRISLY DETAILS The Knights have since learned that the boxes held 111 individual containers of various human remains, in the case against contract medical examiner Michael Edward Berkland. The remains included tissue samples, dissected organs and many whole organs, including hearts, brains, a liver and a lung. the remains were labeled and dated from 1997 through 2007. While half of the containers were said to be medical grade the rest were mostly Ziploc-style plastic sandwich boxes. One sample was left in a 32-ounce styrofoam cup from a local convenience store. The body parts were put in a liquid solution containing formaldehyde and methyl alcohol considered a hazardous material requiring special handling procedures. Sept. 7 and charged with improper disposal/storage of hazardous waste, public nuisance and driving with a suspended license. The improper storage charge constitutes a third degree felony punishable by according to State Attorney William Bill Eddins. The medical examiner leased the storage unit April 18, 2009. He failed to pay rent on the unit at least six times but managed to settle his account just before repossession. He defaulted on the storage site in August and his property was put up for auction. BACK TO THE AUCTION One thing hell keep as a souvenir of that first auction is the medical Berkland worked in Jackson County, Missouri. Thats where he also lost his medical license, according to Clay. The Knight family has since resumed their hobby, going to another auction recently in Panama City. There, Lana fearlessly moved in to sort out the items in a closed box before announcing, There are no body parts in here. in the situation, the Knight family is aware that the discovery will take its toll on relatives of the deceased. Were praying for the families, he said. Theyre going to have to go through this all over again, he said, is contacting families to give some bombarded with phone calls from families wondering it the body parts were those of their relatives who had private autopsies done, he said. Clay said they will continue bidding on property in hopes of finding something of value. Still, its more of a hobby than anything else. Hes on the hunt for valuable baseball cards, Cocahunting gear. His wife loves collecting t-shirts and old tin advertising signs. She loves the thrill of a treasure hunt and gets an adrenalin rush out of it, he said. You never know what He was quick to add, But if I one, itll be the last time I ever bid on one.Altha couple nd boxes of body parts after buying storage locker contents Clay Knight went to the storage facility ofce to tell them there were a few boxes left lled with stuff we aint touching. The ofce worker asked what the boxes contained. Body parts, he said.A 410 shotgun had been dropped on the ground about 18 feet away. Furr said that she and Cliff had been drinking and having a good time that evening until he accused her of sleeping with someone else. I didnt mean to shoot him, she told the deputy. I just wanted to shoot over his head and scare him, but I missed. She added, I love that man. The ambulance arrived, followed by Lt. Shane Geiger. He advised Furr of her rights before speaking further. He replied, No. In a taped statement given while sitting on her front porch with deputies, Furr said, I didnt do anything wrong so I want a lawyer. She told deputies that she and Sloat had been drinking. Earlier that afternoon, friends had visited them. When they left, she said she and Sloat argued. Furr said the gun that had been found in the yard was hers. She stated that she usually kept it just inside the door of her home. She told deputies that while Sloat had not threatened her that day, he had put his hands on me in the past. She was charged with murder based on her admission when she called 911 and due to the lack of evidence to support that he was shot in self-defense, She is being held without bond. scene of the shooting at 9:40 p.m. Blood samples were collected from the grass where Sloat had fallen, from a gray tarp covering a motorcycle in the front yard and from the exterior doorknob from the front door. The gun was also taken by the Liberty County Jail and tested Furr for gunshot residue, photographed her and collected her clothing as evidence. Following an autopsy Saturday, Bay found that the pellet wounds to Sloats right wrist showed he had put his arm up in a defensive reaction when the gun was pointed at him. Pellets were found in Sloats chest cavity and right arm. According to the medical examiners report, Sloat was not shot at point blank range since the pattern of the pellets impact from near his sternum to his shoulder indicated that the projectiles had traveled far enough to spread. for lab analysis. Services for Cliff Sloat will be held Wednesday Sept. 12 at 11 a.m. at Bethel Assembly of God Church in Greensboro. Survivors include his daughters, Cari Marie, Carlyn LeAnn and Caeli Opal Sloat; the mother of his children, Wendy Nicole Sloat; one sister, Amanda Maxine Sloat; one nephew, Easton Earl Jones, all of Telogia, and a host of uncles, aunts and cousins. His complete obituary appears inside on page 17. SHOOTING DEATHContinued from page 1

Page 12 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL SEpPTEMBER 12, 2012 SPORTsSby Richard Williams, Journal sports writerDavid came up one stone short of knocking off Goliath. This time Class 1A Liberty County played the role of David up against Class 5A Bay High at Tommy Oliver Stadium in Panama City. The Bulldogs lost 13-12. Bay High was larger than Liberty in many ways, and those ways mattered in the end. Bay outweighed Liberty across the offensive and defensive front, often by more than 100 pounds. While Libertys smaller squad was forced to play most of the team on offense and defense, Class 5A Bay was able to bring out a new cast with every change of possession. Even so Liberty Coach Grant Grantham refused to accept that as the reason for the loss. People always seem to think we are a lot bigger than we really are our guys play big, and hit big, but I think time, so that was really nothing new for us, Grantham said. Im not saying that didnt play a factor, but it was a few mental mistakes, including some things as coaches we need to do better, that made a difference in the end. Liberty took the lead on a ten-yard run by Alex Marlowe. The touchdown capped a drive kept alive by a Hayden Swier tightrope-worthy catch on the sideline. Swier caught the pass from a scrambling Dustin Watson just keeping his toes in bounds as he grabbed the ball. Bay High responded with a long pounding drive of their own and took a 7-6 lead early in the second quarter. Marlowe and the Bulldog special teams made sure the Bay lead didnt last long. On the ensuing kickoff Marlowe the handle. As Marlowe raced up the middle, his blockers opened a seam the LCHS back on the kicker opened the way for Marlowe to complete the 88-yard return. Libertys twopoint conversion came up short and the Bulldogs held a 12-7 lead. In the second half Liberty put together two 13-play drives, but neither drive ended with points on the board. After being stopped, the Tornato take the lead for good with just over four minutes left in the game. Grantham pointed to the play of J.D. Sellers and Landon Bruffett as standing out in the game. He added he was proud of his team, and felt like Liberty had some backups that not only gained more experience but showed they could play. All of the backups we used did really well, they came in and showed they can play and that is something that can help us down the road, Grantham said. The Bulldogs travel to Marianna Friday night to take on the Class 4A Marianna High School. Game time is scheduled for 8 p.m. (ET).

This past Saturday the Lady Wildcats participated in a volleyball tournament at Chipley High School where they competed with many teams, beating Holmes County and losing to Walton. They were placed in the silver division. The Wildcats beat Wewa, moving them to the silver division championship. There we faced Freeport, playing a long, rough match. The Lady Cats fell short with a loss, receiving runner-up in the championship. Coaches Corner: Our season began a little rocky, with game cancellations due to storm as well as some crucial losses. We began the season with a less than stellar performance at the Preseason Classic and continued with two district losses to Wewa and Vernon. Realizing that we had a lot of work ahead of us, we have steadily been practicing and trying to improve in our weaker areas. Our mental game has been our top focus. With each game, we have seen improvements and are continuing on our trek to prepare for the end, after all it is the district playoffs that bring on the championships. Losing early has not made us a weaker team but has surely made us stronger. Our opponents may have counted us out in. We are seeking a district championas well as much more play beyond the district level! With no seniors, we are fortunate to have a core that will be with us for the next two years. A team comprised of eight juniors and two sophomores is stepping on the court, playing multiple positions us. We were able to avenge our Wewa loss this past weekend at the Chipley tournament, boosting our physical and mental game even more. My team and I realize the quest that is before us and we are willing to work and conquer.

I will make a difference. At its meeting Wednesday in Tampa, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved draft rule amendments regarding falconry, wildlife rehabilitation and taking of wildlife on roads and rights-of-way. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the FWC currently share regulatory authority for this practice, including issuing permits for falconers. However, the USFWS is now relinquishing its responsibilities to states. For falconry to continue to be allowed in Florida, the FWC must amend rules and regulations to meet or exceed federal Service, said Maj. Curtis Brown, who presented the amendments. This includes areas like eligibility requirements for falconers; details regarding possession of golden eagles, requirements for banding, reporting and release of birds, permitting for seasonal residents and visitors, educational display, rehabilitation and possession of prey. In addition to those areas, which must comply with the federal standards, FWC staff also included some new amendments, Brown said. FWC staff held public workshops and worked closely with stakeholders on their needs and concerns to develop the amendments. The topics addressed include claslapsed permits, restoration of suspended or revoked permits; the take, acquisition and transportation of raptors, housing and temporary care, feathers and carcasses of raptors, propagation and the practice of falconry in the vicinity of threatened and endangered species. Commissioners discussed, heard public comment and ultimately approved the draft amendments as presented by staff with the direction for staff to research and consider adding merlins for use by apprentice falconers. The complete draft amendments, which pertain to rules 68A9.005, 69A-9.006 and 68A-4.008, can be viewed online and will be presented for Commission meeting. For more information about falconry regulations, visit MyFWC.com/Rules and select Proposed Rule Changes.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), working in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, plans to document where panthers are roaming beyond south Florida and develop the best practices to help people and panthers coexist. The efforts described at the FWCs recent Commission meeting in Tampa would aid a potential northward expansion of the range of breeding panthers as part of the next steps in panther population recovery. Panther expansion northward is going to be, in large part, due to cooperation with private landowners, said Commission Chairman Kenneth Wright. The panther needs a large area to roam, male. In south Florida, panthers have access to federally managed public lands such as Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve and the Panther National Wildlife Refuge in addition to state and privately owned lands. In the southern part of central Florida, a key area for potential expansion of the large cat, more panther habitat is privately owned. We have room for more panther population growth as long as we manage areas successfully, said Commissioner Ronald Bergeron, who suggested it should be a priority both to conserve the core population in south Florida and prepare for expansion north of the Caloosahatchee River. We have to target the heart of where the panthers are, and continue to move forward with good habitat and with underpasses to protect panthers crossing highways. In the coming months, staff said the FWC will be collaborating closely with stakeholders, including private landowners in central Florida, about what information and resources they need to feel prepared for an increased presence of panthers. The Commissioners supported this approach, particularly an exploration of what pantherrelated conservation incentives should be made available to landowners. For expansion, I think we have to see some version of good wildlife corridors or good unfragmented habitat, said Commissioner Aliese Liesa Priddy. We need to get realistic about what our goals should be and what habitat is available. Priddy said continuing the FWCs strong partnership with USFWS to update panther management goals and enhance resources would be critical. She added that building public support for panther expansion also was an important goal. Panthers once ranged across Florida and into seven other southern states. Today most of the panther population is concentrated in south Florida. Adult male panthers, however, have been documented to range throughout central and north Florida. FWC staff has north of the Caloosahatchee River or Lake Okeechobee. The panther population is estimated to adults have left their mothers but not yet reached sexual maturity. The ultimate goal, stated in the recovery plan developed by USFWS in conjunction with the FWC and other partners, is long-term viability of the Florida panther so it no longer is listed as endangered. Currently the FWCs panther management team uses evidence gathered from the capture and tracking of radio-collared panthers, the causes of panther mortalities and documentation of denning mothers to monitor population trends, changes in occupied range and threats to the population. The FWC also is enlisting the help of Florida citizens in collecting more information about the panthers range. A new website developed by the FWC, www. public.myfwc.com/hsc/panthersightings/ getlatlong.aspx, allows people to easily upload photos of panthers and their tracks geographic database. Since use of motion-activated game cameras has become commonplace, People are getting incredible photos of all kinds of wildlife by day and night, said Kipp Frohlich, who leads the FWCs Imperiled Species Management Section. We are really hoping that someone will show real proof of a female or kittens in central or north Florida. That would be really exciting news. animal.
