Marianna(2 Blks from Jackson Hospital) Journal EditorBRISTOL A bank of solar panels went online Tuesday at W.R. Tolar K-8, making the facility one of 90 schools in Florida to become part of the SunSmart E-Shelter program. Funded by a grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the program provides solar panels to ensure schools that serve as shelters have emergency power during outages. The use of the panels will reduce power costs year round for schools. The ground-mounted panels were put in place this summer. They are located next to the #200 Building, which houses Tolars kindergarten through second grade classrooms. The site includes a small building containing the battery system and power control equipment, surrounded by a chain-link fence. The solar project will be more than a power source, it will be a how much power their schools solar panels are collecting and how long that power can run lights, computers and televisions by going to energywhiz.com and selecting their school by name. For example, on Sept. 5, the panels at East Gadsden High School collected enough energy to power a 32 watt fluorescent light bulb for over 173 hours. To put it in terms that might mean more to students, that same amount of power will keep a PlayStation 2 running for 70 hours. Once Tolars energygathering information is online, students there can monitor how much power they gather from the sun each day and learn how that translates into energy consumption. In addition to East Gadsden High, other area schools participating in the SunSmart E-Shelter program include Havana Middle School in Havana, Deerlake Middle School in Tallahassee and Cedar Grove Elementary and Jinks Middle School in Panama City. TOLAR GOES SOLARSolar panels to gather energy TALLAHASSEE Floridas top energy Putnam, on Tuesday, Sept. 25 hailed the opening of Nopetros state-of-the-art compressed natural gas (CNG) facility, which Southeast the prospect of a viable natural gas solution on a grand scale. The station is part of a planned statewide network that will make CNG a workable cost-saving option for government and commercial owners. work of stations is completed, Putnam said, that move Floridas consumer goods will have a practical way to traverse the state on CNG. This will produce tremendous cost in turn fuel Floridas economy, he added. As individual stations are built, Putnam said, local schools and governments will Putnam praised Nopetro and Leon County Schools Superintendent Jackie Pons for forging the partnership to produce substantial cost savings for the school district while setting a positive, environmentally friendly example for students. This partnership is exactly what our Legislature had in mind when it established natural gas as a key component of the states transportation policies, Putnam said. A network of natural gas fueling stations in major cities across our state individual consumers to make the move into Floridas energy future. The Tallahassee facility the largest and most expansive CNG fueling operation on the East Coast of the United States is the product of an innovative partnership between the public and private sectors source for the Leon County School District. At Pons direction, the school district powered school buses and other vehicles to CNG. Other consumers, including the City of Tallahassee and private users, may also fuel their CNG vehicles at the station, school district thanks to the partnership with Nopetro. This was a truly a day worth celebrat ing a big step forward in Floridas journey toward independence from expensive for eign fuels, said Jorge Herrera, co-founder Tallahassee and Miami. Nopetro epito mizes the American dream of hard work producing results and we are proud to be leading the way both here in Tallahassee and across Florida and the Southeast. Also, participating in the grand opening event were state Sen. Bill Montford, CEO of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents and Leticia Adams, energy policy director for the Florida Chamber of Commerce. During cities it is targeting for the network of CNG fueling stations over the next three years, including (alphabetically) Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Fort Pierce, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Key Largo, Miami, Ocala, Orlando, Pensacola, Sarasota, St. Augustine, Tampa and West Palm Beach, all in Florida and Atlanta, Macon and Savannah, all in Georgia. Public entities in Tallahassee have moved enthusiastically toward CNG. The Leon County School District has already purchased 44 CNG-based school buses and Pons has committed to eventually using CNG for the districts entire 206-bus has purchased eight sanitation vehicles Statewide network making CNG vehicles a viable part of Floridas energy future SEPTEMBER 26, 2012 Page 3 ENERGYSee NATURAL GAS FACILITY IN TALLAHASSEE continued on page 16

Standing in the shadows, full of jealousy, is brother Reuben who is quietly plotting to rid the family of its favorite son by selling him into slavery in Egypt. Now, picture this scene in the West: We are no longer in Canaan but on the Ponderosa and the two sons are Little Joe and Hoss; the father Ben Cartwright. Now you have the correct picture for The Quincy Music Theatres imagina tive production of the classic Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which plays for the next two weekends Sept. 28 to 30 and Oct. 5 to 7. Its the same story, but in a dramatically new setting. In this expanded version of the Broadway hit, audiences will be treated to more music and much more dancing than in the original, says director Shannon OBryan, who is also director of theater arts at Chiles High School. We decided to take it out of the Biblical context as far as costumes were concerned because we cant do all of the big dance numbers in robes. So we chose a Western theme and made the big city Las Vegas and the pharaoh Elvis. Now we wont have to have them doing all the dances in huge robes, OBryan explains. Her husband, well known local choreographer David Jones, has packed this show with very cool desert moves for the 24 energetic actors. This is a family-friendly show with little spoken dialogue and almost completely sung, OBryan notes. I love the music in this play. And this was my favorite Bible story when I was a kid. Each song is totally different in style and Close Every Door is one of my all-time favorite songs so powerful! For tickets, please visit www.qmt. org, or call 875-9444 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The show plays Sept. 28 30 and Oct. 5 to 7.

Mitt Romneys attitude toward Americas 47 percent of slackers who do not pay federal income taxes is reminiscent of the alleged saying of Marie Antoinette, wife of French King, Louie XIV, about French peasants during the French Revolution, which was, Let them eat cake, if they had no bread. To be historically correct, Marie Antoinette didnt actually utter those words. Allegedly, the saying came from a story of a fatuous noblewoman who said, Let them eat cake! a story that appeared in the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseaus Confessions written around 1766 when Marie Antoinette was just 11 years old. However, like Louie XIV and Marie Antoinette, Mitt Romney is royalty, Republican royalty, and his disdain for anyone assumed to be getting a free ride or a hand out from the government is a cornerstone of Republican let them eat cake dogma. The Spout Off column in my local newspaper is a good example of Republican dislike for freeloaders. Trashing the 47 percent who allegedly do not pay federal income tax is an art form with local right-wingers. The irony and hypocrisy of the right-wingers is that many of them are in the 47 percent category. They are retired, on the government dole and dont pay taxes. They are the same people that if anyone should ask them to pay taxes for schools or city, county or state cost, they squeal like a pig stuck in a barbed wire fence. Of course, there are people who abuse the welfare system, Democrats and Republicans alike. People have been lying, cheating and stealing since the beginning of time. Why would they stop now? But, the majority in this hated 47 percent category are hardworking people who are trying to pay the bills, raise their children and hoping for a small slice of the American Dream. The work I do takes me to the backwoods of America. Id like to take Mitt Romney with me and introduce him to the real America. The idea that Mitt Romney can identify with the working man or woman is a joke. When you are a millionaire, the price of gas isnt a big issue. Paying the rent isnt at the top of a millionaires must do list. Millionaires dont count pennies, working people do. My mother was typical of the 47 percent. She lived on her monthly Social Security payment. Did she earn her SS? She worked in a military Base Exchange laundry. She started at 50 cents an hour and 23 years later when they forced her to retire, she was making $1.65 an hour. Most of the 47 percent are not required to pay federal income tax because the U.S. Tax Code exempts them because they do not make enough money to pay taxes. President Reagan had a different view of Americas workers. Unlike Romney and Ryan, he didnt view workers as takers, but because they were working, Reagan viewed them as makers. Reagan supported the Earned Income Tax Credit, which compensated people for working and not being on welfare. According to Peter Coy, writing in Bloomberg Businessweek, September 19, 2012, Reagan strongly supported the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which sends checks to Americans who work but earn less than around $46,000 a year, depending on family size. Recipients of the credit are among those who dont pay income tax, but Reagan never regarded that as a problem. His administration estimated that the 1986 reform of the tax code would remove 6 million working poor from the tax rolls. Reagan called the reform a sweeping victory for fairness and perhaps the biggest antipoverty program in our history. The number of moderate, Reaganesque Republicans in the Republican Party can be counted on one hand. Moderation and compromise are no longer words in the Republi can Party lexicon. The Republican Party is dominated by extremists who have one purpose: defeat President Obama and dismantle government. The latest Republican talking point is redistribu tion of taxes. As my grandmother would say, They are showing their ignorance again. tributed. The cities, counties, states and federal government dont collect taxes and keep them in a vault never to be used. Tax monies are then redistributed or spent to build things, pave roads for the common good. Of course, tax money is redistributed to pay for social programs. Nothing new about redistribution of tax money, but what is new is the redistribution of wealth upwards to the 1 percent. Since the beginning of the Reagan administration, the rich have been getting richer and the working man Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL SEPTEMBER 26, 2012 COMMENTARYCORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Late Night LaughsA RECAP OF RECENT OBSER V ATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.Romney: Let them eat cakePresident Obamas campaign is trying to appeal to single women in Florida over 65.

And believe, if theres one thing that President Obama is good at lately, its lowering expectations. JAY LENOIt was a rough week for Mitt Romney. Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty quit as cochair of Mitt Romneys presidential campaign. I think the technical term is jumping ship. JAY LENONew documents show that Mitt Romneys campaign is $11 million in debt. First Romneys advisers had to explain that he was running out of money.

JAY LENOYes, President Romney will not take God off our coins. And that is so important because right now, just like God, the value of our currency really has to be taken on faith.

SEPTEMBER 26, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY "The most important lesson I've learned is that you can't change Washington from the inside," Barack Obama said in an interview Thursday on the Spanishlanguage Univision network. "You can only change it from the outside." A better way to put it is that Barack Obama has proved he can't change Washington from the inside. One case in point is the comprehensive immigration legislation Obama promised Univision interviewers, who asked tougher questions than the president has been getting from David Letterman or various rappers, zeroed in on this issue. With a 60-vote supermajority in the Senate and a solid Democratic majority in the House in 2009 and 2010, Obama could have pushed for an immigration bill. Instead, he acquiesced in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision not to bring require some of her members to cast tough votes. But, with Obama's encouragement, she a cap-and-trade bill that also required some of her members to cast tough and in some cases career-ending votes. Cap-and-trade was a favorite of gentry liberals, the kind of people Obama regularly has seen at his 200-plus fundraising events. As for the Hispanics who want immigration legislation, he's now promising that he'll push it in his second term. Wait in line. George W. Bush managed to get congressional votes on comprehensive immigration bills. Obama didn't bother. Obama's inability to change Washington from the inside is also on display in Bob Woodward's latest bestseller, "The Price of Politics." He tells how in a meeting of congressional leaders Pelosi muted a speakerphone as Obama droned on lecturing members on the national interest, so the legislators could get some work done. He shows how Obama blew up the summer 2011 grand bargain negotiations with Speaker John Boehner by suddenly raising his demands. Boehner had already agreed to increased revenues from high earners through tax reform that would eliminate largely to those with high incomes. That's the kind of tax reform recommended by Obama's SimpsonBowles Commission, whose report It had the support of congressional Republicans like vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan and Republicans on the supercommittee. But Obama insisted on higher tax rates for high earners proposals that tend to bring in less revenue than forecast and raised the ante on Boehner. All of which prompts the question: Would the economy be doing better today if the grand bargain had been successful, and if we were not headed toward the fiscal cliff resulting from the sequestration process congressional leaders improvised after Obama spiked the negotiations? We can't know the answer for sure. But it's certainly possible. Instead, the economy is in such disarray that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has embarked on a third round of quantitative easing. Obama has spent about half of his to the state Senate, he ran for Congress. He lost, and a couple of years later ran for the U.S. Senate. running for president. And he's spent a lot of time this last two years all those fundraisers! running again. In the meantime, he has skipped more than half of his daily intelligence before the attacks on our embassies and consulates that started on Sept. 11, 2012. Afterward, White House press secretary Jay Carney, Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and Obama himself (on David Letterman) characterized the attacks as spontaneous responses to a video criticizing Islam. That story line was punctured when the director of the National Counterterrorism Center stated what seemed to be obvious that Ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed "in the course of a terrorist attack." The video was a pretext. The video alibi was obviously politically motivated. One of the premises of the Obama campaign was that his election would make Muslims love America. What we see in all this is a president who is much more comfortable campaigning than governing. What we also see is disarray an economy that is foundering, a world where America is on the defensive and under attack. A president who can't change Washington and whose election did not magically change the world.Michael Barone is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Fox News Channel contributor and a co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.

JOE Dylan Lees interception with 1:08 left pretrict victory 14-6 at Port St. Joe Friday night. Head Coach Greg Jordan had mixed emotions about the win. I am glad for the victory but disappointed in how we played. St. Joe played their absolute best, he said. They had an extra week to prepare and got some injured players healthy. They threw some things at us that we were not prepared for but we were able to make adjustments and come out with the win at the end. Things did not start out well for Blountstown. On the T igers to punt after three plays. Port St. Joe blocked the punt and Romello Zaccarro scooped up the ball and ran it 30 yards to the end zone.

NO. 5 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2, 11, AND 12 (Legislative) Ballot Title: STATE COURTS. Ballot Summary: Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legisla ture determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Qualirepealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature.

Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, Commission must make avail able, all information in the commissions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its of the House of Representa tives but provides that such during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeach ment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying addi tions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the mission, and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution.

The program brings in a visiting artists to work with patients at their bedside implementing music, art, and creative thought. It is said that when we take our mind off the hospital experience and explore the Arts it helps us to heal... mentally, physically and spiritually thus promoting wellness. Shands Hospital, in Gainesville, researched this belief in 1990 and launched an Arts in Healthcare program that is now growing throughout the country. Artist in Residence Anna Layton, says the positive feedback is really inspiring! She is pictured here with swing-bed patient Wallace Godwin who has been at the hospital long term. He and Anna imaginative and expressive images that previously adorned his room walls. Mr. Godwin will be released soon and says Thanks to all the staff at Calhoun Liberty Hospital for the care they have given me and to Anna who made it possible for me to see how life can really be through art! rts A live Visitors enjoyed browsing through a selection of local artworks when they arrived Tuesday to meet those taking part in this years Arts Alive display at Veterans Memorial Center in Bristol.

MMarianna(2 Blks from Jackson Hospital) Journal EditorBRISTOL A bank of solar panels went online Tuesday at W.R. Tolar K-8, making the facility one of 90 schools in Florida to become part of the SunSmart E-Shelter program. Funded by a grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the program provides solar panels to ensure schools that serve as shelters have emergency power during outages. The use of the panels will reduce power costs year round for schools. The ground-mounted panels were put in place this summer. They are located next to the #200 Building, which houses Tolars kindergarten through second grade classrooms. The site includes a small building containing the battery system and power control equipment, surrounded by a chain-link fence. The solar project will be more than a power source, it will be a how much power their schools solar panels are collecting and how long that power can run lights, computers and televisions by going to energywhiz.com and selecting their school by name. For example, on Sept. 5, the panels at East Gadsden High School collected enough energy to power a 32 watt fluorescent light bulb for over 173 hours. To put it in terms that might mean more to students, that same amount of power will keep a PlayStation 2 running for 70 hours. Once Tolars energygathering information is online, students there can monitor how much power they gather from the sun each day and learn how that translates into energy consumption. In addition to East Gadsden High, other area schools participating in the SunSmart E-Shelter program include Havana Middle School in Havana, Deerlake Middle School in Tallahassee and Cedar Grove Elementary and Jinks Middle School in Panama City.

The station is part of a planned statewide network that will make CNG a workable cost-saving option for government and commercial owners. work of stations is completed, Putnam said, that move Floridas consumer goods will have a practical way to traverse the state on CNG. This will produce tremendous cost in turn fuel Floridas economy, he added. As individual stations are built, Putnam said, local schools and governments will Putnam praised Nopetro and Leon County Schools Superintendent Jackie Pons for forging the partnership to produce substantial cost savings for the school district while setting a positive, environmentally friendly example for students. This partnership is exactly what our Legislature had in mind when it established natural gas as a key component of the states transportation policies, Putnam said. A network of natural gas fueling stations in major cities across our state individual consumers to make the move into Floridas energy future. The Tallahassee facility the largest and most expansive CNG fueling operation on the East Coast of the United States is the product of an innovative partnership between the public and private sectors source for the Leon County School District. At Pons direction, the school district powered school buses and other vehicles to CNG. Other consumers, including the City of Tallahassee and private users, may also fuel their CNG vehicles at the station, school district thanks to the partnership with Nopetro. This was a truly a day worth celebrating a big step forward in Floridas journey toward independence from expensive foreign fuels, said Jorge Herrera, co-founder Tallahassee and Miami. Nopetro epitomizes the American dream of hard work producing results and we are proud to be leading the way both here in Tallahassee and across Florida and the Southeast. Also, participating in the grand opening event were state Sen.

Standing in the shadows, full of jealousy, is brother Reuben who is quietly plotting to rid the family of its favorite son by selling him into slavery in Egypt. Now, picture this scene in the West: We are no longer in Canaan but on the Ponderosa and the two sons are Little Joe and Hoss; the father Ben Cartwright. Now you have the correct picture for The Quincy Music Theatres imaginative production of the classic Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which plays for the next two weekends Sept. 28 to 30 and Oct. 5 to 7. Its the same story, but in a dramatically new setting. In this expanded version of the Broadway hit, audiences will be treated to more music and much more dancing than in the original, says director Shannon OBryan, who is also director of theater arts at Chiles High School. We decided to take it out of the Biblical context as far as costumes were concerned because we cant do all of the big dance numbers in robes. So we chose a Western theme and made the big city Las Vegas and the pharaoh Elvis. Now we wont have to have them doing all the dances in huge robes, OBryan explains. Her husband, well known local choreographer David Jones, has packed this show with very cool desert moves for the 24 energetic actors. This is a family-friendly show with little spoken dialogue and almost completely sung, OBryan notes. I love the music in this play. And this was my favorite Bible story when I was a kid. Each song is totally different in style and Close Every Door is one of my all-time favorite songs so powerful!

Mitt Romneys attitude toward Americas 47 percent of slackers who do not pay federal income taxes is reminiscent of the alleged saying of Marie Antoinette, wife of French King, Louie XIV, about French peasants during the French Revolution, which was, Let them eat cake, if they had no bread. To be historically correct, Marie Antoinette didnt actually utter those words. Allegedly, the saying came from a story of a fatuous noblewoman who said, Let them eat cake! a story that appeared in the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseaus Confessions written around 1766 when Marie Antoinette was just 11 years old. However, like Louie XIV and Marie Antoinette, Mitt Romney is royalty, Republican royalty, and his disdain for anyone assumed to be getting a free ride or a hand out from the government is a cornerstone of Republican let them eat cake dogma. The Spout Off column in my local newspaper is a good example of Republican dislike for freeloaders. Trashing the 47 percent who allegedly do not pay federal income tax is an art form with local right-wingers. The irony and hypocrisy of the right-wingers is that many of them are in the 47 percent category. They are retired, on the government dole and dont pay taxes. They are the same people that if anyone should ask them to pay taxes for schools or city, county or state cost, they squeal like a pig stuck in a barbed wire fence. Of course, there are people who abuse the welfare system, Democrats and Republicans alike. People have been lying, cheating and stealing since the beginning of time. Why would they stop now? But, the majority in this hated 47 percent category are hardworking people who are trying to pay the bills, raise their children and hoping for a small slice of the American Dream. The work I do takes me to the backwoods of America. Id like to take Mitt Romney with me and introduce him to the real America. The idea that Mitt Romney can identify with the working man or woman is a joke. When you are a millionaire, the price of gas isnt a big issue. Paying the rent isnt at the top of a millionaires must do list. Millionaires dont count pennies, working people do. My mother was typical of the 47 percent. She lived on her monthly Social Security payment. Did she earn her SS? She worked in a military Base Exchange laundry. She started at 50 cents an hour and 23 years later when they forced her to retire, she was making $1.65 an hour. Most of the 47 percent are not required to pay federal income tax because the U.S. Tax Code exempts them because they do not make enough money to pay taxes. President Reagan had a different view of Americas workers. Unlike Romney and Ryan, he didnt view workers as takers, but because they were working, Reagan viewed them as makers. Reagan supported the Earned Income Tax Credit, which compensated people for working and not being on welfare. According to Peter Coy, writing in Bloomberg Businessweek, September 19, 2012, Reagan strongly supported the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which sends checks to Americans who work but earn less than around $46,000 a year, depending on family size. Recipients of the credit are among those who dont pay income tax, but Reagan never regarded that as a problem. His administration estimated that the 1986 reform of the tax code would remove 6 million working poor from the tax rolls. Reagan called the reform a sweeping victory for fairness and perhaps the biggest antipoverty program in our history. The number of moderate, Reaganesque Republicans in the Republican Party can be counted on one hand. Moderation and compromise are no longer words in the Republican Party lexicon. The Republican Party is dominated by extremists who have one purpose: defeat President Obama and dismantle government. The latest Republican talking point is redistribution of taxes. As my grandmother would say, They are showing their ignorance again. tributed. The cities, counties, states and federal government dont collect taxes and keep them in a vault never to be used. Tax monies are then redistributed or spent to build things, pave roads for the common good. Of course, tax money is redistributed to pay for social programs. Nothing new about redistribution of tax money, but what is new is the redistribution of wealth upwards to the 1 percent. Since the beginning of the Reagan administration, the rich have been getting richer and the working man Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL SEpPTEMBER 26, 2012 COMMENTARYCORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Late Night LaughsA recaRECAP oOF recentRECENT obOBSerER Vation ATIONS by BY lateLATE niNIGhtHT tV TV hoHOStTS.RRomney: Let them eat cakePPresident Obamas campaign is trying to appeal to single women in F Florida over 65.

SEPTEMBER 26, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL PPage 7 COMMENTARY "The most important lesson I've learned is that you can't change Washington from the inside," Barack Obama said in an interview Thursday on the Spanishlanguage Univision network. "You can only change it from the outside." A better way to put it is that Barack Obama has proved he can't change Washington from the inside. One case in point is the comprehensive immigration legislation Obama promised Univision interviewers, who asked tougher questions than the president has been getting from David Letterman or various rappers, zeroed in on this issue. With a 60-vote supermajority in the Senate and a solid Democratic majority in the House in 2009 and 2010, Obama could have pushed for an immigration bill. Instead, he acquiesced in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision not to bring require some of her members to cast tough votes. But, with Obama's encouragement, she a cap-and-trade bill that also required some of her members to cast tough and in some cases career-ending votes. Cap-and-trade was a favorite of gentry liberals, the kind of people Obama regularly has seen at his 200-plus fundraising events. As for the Hispanics who want immigration legislation, he's now promising that he'll push it in his second term. Wait in line. George W. Bush managed to get congressional votes on comprehensive immigration bills. Obama didn't bother. Obama's inability to change Washington from the inside is also on display in Bob Woodward's latest bestseller, "The Price of Politics." He tells how in a meeting of congressional leaders Pelosi muted a speakerphone as Obama droned on lecturing members on the national interest, so the legislators could get some work done. He shows how Obama blew up the summer 2011 grand bargain negotiations with Speaker John Boehner by suddenly raising his demands. Boehner had already agreed to increased revenues from high earners through tax reform that would eliminate largely to those with high incomes. That's the kind of tax reform recommended by Obama's SimpsonBowles Commission, whose report It had the support of congressional Republicans like vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan and Republicans on the supercommittee. But Obama insisted on higher tax rates for high earners proposals that tend to bring in less revenue than forecast and raised the ante on Boehner. All of which prompts the question: Would the economy be doing better today if the grand bargain had been successful, and if we were not headed toward the fiscal cliff resulting from the sequestration process congressional leaders improvised after Obama spiked the negotiations? We can't know the answer for sure. But it's certainly possible. Instead, the economy is in such disarray that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has embarked on a third round of quantitative easing. Obama has spent about half of his to the state Senate, he ran for Congress. He lost, and a couple of years later ran for the U.S. Senate. running for president. And he's spent a lot of time this last two years all those fundraisers! running again. In the meantime, he has skipped more than half of his daily intelligence before the attacks on our embassies and consulates that started on Sept. 11, 2012. Afterward, White House press secretary Jay Carney, Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and Obama himself (on David Letterman) characterized the attacks as spontaneous responses to a video criticizing Islam. That story line was punctured when the director of the National Counterterrorism Center stated what seemed to be obvious that Ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed "in the course of a terrorist attack." The video was a pretext. The video alibi was obviously politically motivated. One of the premises of the Obama campaign was that his election would make Muslims love America. What we see in all this is a president who is much more comfortable campaigning than governing. What we also see is disarray an economy that is foundering, a world where America is on the defensive and under attack. A president who can't change Washington and whose election did not magically change the world.Michael Barone is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Fox News Channel contributor and a co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.

More than 275 people registered for the run, which is double the number that participated in 2011. Over 75 percent of the runners traveled 60 miles or more, some from as far away as Atlanta and the Tampa-area. The Altha Recreation Park was the perfect location for the event and boasted some 500 visitors Saturday morning for the event. The Chamber worked with local businesses to promote their services by adding coupons to each registration bag, as well as brochures on local tourist attractions. The Panhandle Pioneer Settlement, The Depot Museum, who specialize in canoeing and kayaking on the Chipola River, were all featured. The Swamp & Stomp Mud Run was approximately three-miles long and incorporated obstacles throughout the course. Waldorffs Ace Hardware donated the materials and the BHS carpentry class constructed climbing walls and hurdles used as obstacles on the course. Runners were also faced with hay bales to jump, tires to carry, culverts and tunnels to crawl through and of course they were tied across the pit to encourage mud runners to get The Town of Altha donated the preparation and use of their former mud-bog hole and turned it into a top notch mud pit, perfect for the last stretch of the course.

NO. 5 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2, 11, AND 12 (Legislative) Ballot Title: STATE COURTS. Ballot Summary: Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Qualirepealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature.

Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, Commission must make available, all information in the commissions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its of the House of Representatives but provides that such during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the mission, and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution.

The program brings in a visiting artists to work with patients at their bedside implementing music, art, and creative thought. It is said that when we take our mind off the hospital experience and explore the Arts it helps us to heal... mentally, physically and spiritually thus promoting wellness. Shands Hospital, in Gainesville, researched this belief in 1990 and launched an Arts in Healthcare program that is now growing throughout the country. Artist in Residence Anna Layton, says the positive feedback is really inspiring! She is pictured here with swing-bed patient Wallace Godwin who has been at the hospital long term. He and Anna imaginative and expressive images that previously adorned his room walls. Mr. Godwin will be released soon and says Thanks to all the staff at Calhoun Liberty Hospital for the care they have given me and to Anna who made it possible for me to see how life can really be through art! rts A live Visitors enjoyed browsing through a selection of local artworks when they arrived Tuesday to meet those taking part in this years Arts Alive display at Veterans Memorial Center in Bristol.
