TERESA EUBANKS PHOTOSby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorBRISTOL A six-member Liberty County jury agreed with former Health Department Director David Odum, 68, that he should not have been fired and awarded him over $600,000 at the end of a four-day trial last week in Bristol. Just having my good name restored in the community is worth everything to me, Odum said after the trial. Attorney Marie Mattox told the jury three factors wrongly cost Odum his job: His boss wanted him to return from family medical leave, an employee exceeded her authority in several ways and he faced retaliation when he reported that misconduct. The jury ordered that the Florida Department of Health pay him lost wages and benefits totalling $307,766.18. Health Department Business Manager, Kelly King, was ordered to pay $300,000 compensation for causing Odum emotional pain and mental anguish through intentional interference. The jury agreed that Odum should be reinstated to his same position or an equivalent position along with rights, and that his attorneys fees would be paid. Odum oversaw both the Liberty County and Calhoun County Health Departments from 2000 through 2006. His role was reduced in 2006 and another administrator, Dr. Gene Charbonneau, was hired for the Liberty County Health Department while Odum continued to run the Calhoun County Health Department. In February 2009, Odum filed suit against the Florida Department of Health, the Calhoun County Commission, the Liberty County Commission, three individual county commissioners and Kelly King. The lawsuit claimed he had been falsely accused of harassing employees, mismanaging the budget In December 2011, the Liberty County Commission settled with Odum for $50,000. That settlement against former commissioners L.B. Arnold and John T. Sanders. A settlement was also reached with Calhoun County around the same time. The settlement agreement barred Odum from telling how much money he received, but he said, It was substantially less than Liberty County. MEDICAL LEA VE Employees can take up to three months of unpaid leave without it endangering their job, according to the U.S. Dept. of Labors Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). When David Odum learned about a facility in California that could help with his wifes crippling pain from fibromyalgia, they made plans to go. Odum received approval to take family medical leave beginning on Oct. 26, 2006. Ten days before leaving, he met with Florida Department of Health Director Dr. Bonnie Sorensen for his annual performance review. She gave him a glowing evaluation, noting, he is in the prime of his career and exceeds expectations. During testimony Friday morning, Sorensen acknowledged that she had commented that day to Odum, Your wife doesnt look sick. It must be nice going on FMLA in South Lake Tahoe, California. A little over two months later, Sorensen called Odum. I expressed my concern to Mr. Odum that it might be a good idea to come back and at least have a presence in the David Odum is shown during a break during Fridays testimony at the Liberty County Courthouse.Fired Health Dept.

Bill Peacock, Altha To the editor: Last month my wife Brooke and I photographed a wedding on St. George Island for a beautiful couple from north Georgia. The groom is in the Coast Guard and the bride, Caitlyn, is a nurse at a childrens hospital that specializes in chil drens cancer. Her family spoke of her compassion for chil dren stricken with cancer and how she volunteered much of her spare time working with them. What they didnt know is that over the past several months, as I ran, I prayed Runner raising money for Lighthouse Family Retreatfor a way to make my running less about me and more about God and for him to show me a way to help others through my running. A huge light came on as I was editing the images from that wedding. And after several conversations with the bride and much prayer, an awesome opportunity has come about to help a great cause. This Sunday, Oct. 21, Im running my very 13.1 miles!) in Apalachi cola. For every minute Im under the two hour mark, Im asking people to pledge $1 that will be donated to the Lighthouse Family Retreat, which is a charity that Caitlyn keeps very close to her heart and after researching it, mine as well. Lighthouse Family Retreat allows families affected by childhood cancer to: Have a weeklong stay at the beach, forget the innumerable stresses of the world, allow the children to bond with others in their same situation and allow families to learn special ways to handle childhood cancer. Theres more info on their website at www. lighthousefamilyretreat. org. If you (like myself) have been touched by this endeavor to help others, you can facebook message, email, or even call me at (850) 643-7893 and pledge your $1 a minute. are posted Ill contact all who pledged to collect the donations, which can be made payable directly to Lighthouse Family Retreat. How much will you be in for? Well, a two hour time is roughly 13.1 9 minute miles. My personal best in training is 1:52:31 and Im hoping to run around a 1:50. So $10...Thats not bad.

Jacob Alexander was born in Edgar in 1931 and died in 2009 in San Francisco at the age of 78. His life and art echoes many of the hardships and joys he experienced growing up in the depression in the rural South. As a small boy he watched as every scrap of cloth, that wasnt being worn, was reincarnated into a colorful quilt. Family and neighborhood quilting bees were a part of the rhythm of his young life. He joined the U. S. Air Force in 1948, serving in Korea and twice in Vietnam; completing 20 years, three months and 19 days in 1968. He went on to complete his BA and MA and taught African History, African American History and African American Literature at Miami Dade Community College. It was during this period that he traveled extensively in East and West Africa, toured the U.S. and further developed his expressive art form. He said, The pieces I fabricate are Southeast Asia, as well as the sadness and destruction, the snake dances of Japan, Bombay and Kwanza Festivals in Miami and my experiences in the classroom and urban streets. I create and organize these fabrics as a poetic expression of my emotions. The dynamic nature of the colors, as well as the degree of aesthetic function, is a distillation of my thoughts and emotions that are both spontaneous and planned. Jacob Alexanders textile art has been features in galleries such as the Museum of African American Art in Los Angeles, CA and closer to home in the Harambee Arts and Culture Heritage Festival in Tallahassee. Alexander had close ties to this area. His brother, Herbert Alexander, was past Dean of the FAMU School of Education. The exhibit is on loan to the Blountstown Public Library through Thanksgiving by Harmon Brody, a long-time personal friend of the Alexanders. Jacob Alexander is survived by his wife, Sondra Alexander and owner of Yangki. She is known for couture wall-coverings of hand painted patterns. Brody tells of helping Jacob build the tables and looms that Sondra uses for painting her fabrics. It is from the scraps of these hand painted patterns that Alexander created his textile art. For more about Jacob Alexander or his wife, Sondra, go to www.jacobalexanderart.come, or www.yangki. com/products.html.

All candidates and the general public from all denominations are invited to attend. Candidates who are present will be recognized and given one minute for a brief statement. But this gathering is not a campaign event. There will be no campaign speeches. Spiritual values are important to many people.

This venue will provide candidates an opportu nity to express their faith and join in prayer as they choose. Several scriptures will be portion of the gathering will be a season of prayer. Candidates will be invited to participate in prayer as they choose. Many Christian believers have been involved in 40 Days of Prayer leading up to this election. This presidential election is extremely important. In my 60 years, there has never been a more critical time of decision. Two very different visions of America lie before us. As a local pastor, I am calling people to prayer for our nation for these elections. In addition to the Sunday Prayer Gath ering, a Saturday Mens Prayer breakfast will be held Saturday, Nov. 3 at 8 a.m. at Gateway. Men from the community are invited to join us.

Page 10 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCT OBER 17, 2012 COMMENTARYMy doorbell rang as I was starting this column. A man and a woman representing Americans for Prosperity were ringing door bells for Romney. Their handout had all the right-wing propaganda and talking points. Recognizing who they were and what they represented, I said let us talk about the issues. We did. It was a cordial exchange of views, as it should be. The thrust of their argument is that President Obama is totally responsible for the national debt. I pointed out that they should began with President Bushs 2001 and 2003 tax cuts. Further, Bush then put the cost of two wars and Medicare Part D on the national credit card. Bushs national debt to $10 trillion dollars. Thats a fact, something that Republicans rarely embrace. I then pointed out that because the U.S. is still operating under and with cal policies, the U.S. is going to incur an annual now till Hell freezes over. It doesnt matter who the president is, Romney or Obama, the numbers are the numbers. It is what it is, and no amount of political blather from either party will change the numbers. The only solution is decreased cost and increased taxes. If you want it, pay for it. The Americans for Prosperity fellow countered with it all began with Clinton. My response was that Im not defending President Clinton because he made a critical mistake in agreeing with the Republicans in Congress to the cancellation of the 1933 Glass-Stengall Act which prevented banks from engaging in the sale of stocks and securities. If Clinton had not agreed on the demise of Glasscollapse of 2008 probably would not have occurred. But the free market truebelievers like Governor Romney are responsible lief that markets are rational is pure folly. This fellow brought up the stimulus and what a budget breaking deal that was. I made the point that the only way to recover from an economic depression was for the government to spend money in the short term then deal with the long term issues with cost cuts, tax reform and tax increases, when required. This fellow countered with the comment that President Roosevelt tried a stimulus that didnt work and created a new recession. I pointed out his lack of facts, which is that the New Deal spending worked, but Republicans talked Roosevelt into a cost-cutting binge that actually created a downturn in the New Deal recover. Look at the historical numbers, not political rhetoric. Approximately $288 billion of the stimulus was allocated to tax relief for individuals. Another $144 billion was sent to the states to help with state budgets. Approximately $111 billion was allocated for infrastructure projects. My local economy received some of the infrastructure money to pave state roads and build a large overpass and intersection at the local airport that has employed a workforce for the past three years. In addition, local companies supplied concrete and building materials. I would have continued the dialog with this couple, but the woman, who had not said anything during our exchange, suggested to the man that they move on. I was just getting warmed up. At one time, Presidential elections were a great American spectacle. Both sides would, more or less, tell what they stood for, all the while lambasting each other. Somehow, the two parties werent that far apart on issues. Most of us believed that no matter who bewould be bipartisan compromise on the main issues that affected most of us most of the time.Believing that, I voted for a number of Republican presidents. Eisenhower, Reagan and Bush Senior whom my wife and I met when I was the Vice Wing Commander at Homestead Air Base south of Miami. In my opinion, Bush Senior should have had a second term, but he had to raise taxes and the right-wing extremists in his party burned him at the political stake. There were not enough moderate Republicans in the party to save him from the right-wing social conservatives, a group to which Bush Senior never pandered. Americas presidential campaigns have changedchanged for the worse. Who is at fault? We the people are at fault. Why? Intolerance for others. America is a danger ously divided camp of which no good can come. If comments in my local newspapers Spout Off column are any indication of what people really think about this place called America, then we are in a lot of trouble. They hate anyone, anything, any idea, and any issue that is remotely associated with the word liberal. It doesnt matter that most of them are on the government dole, part of Romney 47% of sluggards. They hate the guvment. Im a numbers guy. Ive looked at Romneys proposals, at least what he can describe. You cant make a judgment about the effect of reducing IRS tax deductions unless you know what tax reductions will be canceled. Romney wont say. If you cancel all tax deductions like the home mortgage interest rate deduction, the total savings will not cover Romneys 20% lowering of the tax rate, whatever that is. He wont say. If you want your Social Security account to be on Wall Street, then vote for Romney. If the markets decline, which they will, check your account. In 2008, the balance would have been zip. If you want a voucher of some unknown amount sent to you by Romney with the ininsurance, then vote for Romney. If a woman wants Mr. Ryan to decide what healthcare she should receive, then vote for Romney/Ryan. Check with them. They can decide if you should have birth control pills. Youve been raped and want an abortion. Check with Romney/Ryan and see if it OK. Government in your bedroom. What could possibly be wrong with that? If a decade of war in the Middle East hasnt been enough for you. If we havent killed enough American servicemen on this fools folly, then vote for Romney. You, your son, daughter, or your grandchildren can get an all-expense paid trip to Syria. However, they have to wear combat boots and carry that plan? In spite of Republican efforts to suppress the vote, if you are able to vote, cast your vote for the America of your choice on November 6.CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Front door encounter; a cordial exchangeIt doesnt matter who the president is, Romney or Obama, the numbers are the numbers.

OCT OBER 17, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 11 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Game two in the presidential world seriesWASHINGTON Debates are often decided on imagery Nixon perspiring, George H. W. Bush looking at his watch, Gore yawning but not when substantive issues are determinative. In the BidenRyan vice presidential debate, issues were determinative, which is why the vice presidents smirking, while not appealing, was largely irrelevant. His condescension, on the other hand, served a purpose. While such behavior is not endearing, it can be devastating for the person on the receiving end if it succeeds in minimizing and marginalizing his status, credibility and maturity. Still, in a substantive debate, looks, images, attitudes and mannerisms are peripheral issues. he allowed Gov. Romneys claims and charges to go unanswered, so Rep. Paul Ryan lost against Vice President Joe Biden for the same reason. Ryan said he would cut taxes 20 percent, but when pressed by moderator Martha Raddatz to explain how he would pay for this, he responded that it would be accomplished on a bipartisan eliminate the mortgage interest deduction, a deduction very dear to homeowners hearts. After Ryan denounced the administrations handling of Irans nuclear ambitions, he failed to say what he would do differently. Ryan said he would not tell the enemy when he would pull our troops out of Afghanistan, just after having said he agrees with the administrations policy to pull the troops out rescue plan was a giveaway that did not create jobs. Then, when reminded by Biden, he admitted he had twice written letters to the vice president requesting aid for Wisconsin because it would help create jobs. And so it went, on and on. Unlike the president the previous week, the vice president let nothing pass. He countered assertion by assertion, but more voids left by Ryan. It was not that Ryan was unprepared or unrehearsed. Rather, his controversial budget ideas are incomplete at best and irrational at worst and they did not stand up under the glaring lights of a vice presidential debate. All this lays the stage for the Oct. 16 and 22 Obama and Ryan played it safe and lost. In the upcoming debates neither President Obama nor Gov. Romney can afford to hold back. Romneys primary job will be to complete his agenda, including the he has less than four days to do it. Obamas primary necessary to refute what he claims are Romneys misstatements and altered positions. As a result, the next two debates will likely set viewing records and the viewing publics increased knowledge of civics and current events will prove to be the big winner.

OCT OBER 17, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 13 When he replied that his wifes treatment would end in a couple of weeks, Sorensen said she stated, Its only a plane ticket to you and suggested he make the trip. He did. I had no problem with him wanting to extend his leave but I was very concerned about the perception since he was the full time administrator over two counties, she said. While on leave, Odum said he averaged three hours a day responding to emails and approving timesheets. During closing arguments late that afternoon, Mattox asked the jury, How do you go from being one of the best to BUCKED HIS AUTHORITY According to the lawsuit, Kelly King, business manager for both health departments, filed a false complaint against Odum, harassed him and created a hostile environment for him. Kelly King also prepared bogus spending plans for Fiscal Year 2007, that showed Calhoun Countys cash-to-budget ratio dropping to well below legislative mandates, and then back again to well above that ratio, which had the effect of presenting an utterly false portrait about the Plaintiff and his job performance, the lawsuit alleges. While Odum was on medical leave, most of his contact with King was by email. When he returned, Odum found things were not being handled as he thought they should be, including the advertisement and hiring of a Health Educator Cosultant position that he had instructed her to take care of. She bucked his authority, Mattox told the jury. She changed the requirements directives on a number of fronts. COUNSELING MEMO After his return, Odum prepared a four and a half page letter addressing the problems that he intended to give to King. He took the counseling memo to I was frankly, quite surprised at the letter, Sorensen said. I asked him not to give the letter to her. I told him to sit down and talk with her. In the letter, Odum told King, Upon my return I was surprised by some of the independent, administrative decisions you advice even though I was immediately available to you electronically. The letter pointed out issues with the Tobacco Prevention Program, which resulted in a loss of some funding because neither the Calhoun or Liberty County Health Department had an active SWAT club. Although funding was received for schools and other sponsored events no SWAT activities were reported. of the Health Educator Consultant position in which King changed the requirements from education to work experience. I asked that the wording from the CDHPE Guidebook be used when advertising the position, i.e. the successful candidate will be a health professional, e.g. Registered Nurse, Nutritionist, etc., with knowledge of public health, chronic diseases, etc. Odum stated in the letter. He later learned that the job ad had been posted later than he had requested, was given the job, making her the only one in the state hired for that position without a degree. Thirty-eight applicants responded to an ad for the same position at the Calhoun County Health Department. Odum was also concerned that several Calhoun County residents were hired for positions with the Liberty County Health Department, an issue that upset Liberty County Commissioners. While Dr. Charbonneau was the hiring authority at the time, Odum felt King had used her position to ensure those people were hired. Several other issues were listed in the letter, including a Medicaid Rate reduction. I was surprised that I was neither consulted nor informed about the rate reduction and was only made aware when receiving the report after the fact, according to Odum. He also expressed concern that she had not consulted him before making some staff changes, he said he was caught by surprise when he learned she had been representing his interests in efforts to Center in Bristol, and didnt understand why she took off time between Christmas and New Years without giving him any notice when he had already approved the same timeframe of leave for another employee. I was not aware you were taking off and saw no email appointing a successor during your absence. Odum said he met with King, had Nursing Director Lisa Taylor sit in as a witness, and went over the letter. King denied they ever spoke about the letter. A GOOD RELATIONSHIP DRASTICALLY CHANGED Until the very end, we had a good relationship, King said about working with Odum. But when he returned from family medical leave, that drastically changed. She said she began to believe her job was in jeopardy because he started questioning my work product. She said they didnt have conversations; he communicated with her through emails that were insinuating that I was doing something wrong. A couple of those emails were introduced into evidence and included lists of questions from Odum to King. In one, he asked about transfers she made without his approval or signature, discussed details in the account for the mosquito program, talked about ordering a new desk, and asked her to poll other they accepted credit card payments from patients. King admitted making a serious error in the budget, putting a $30,000 grant in the wrong column, affecting the ending cash balance. I corrected it within a couple of days, King said, explaining it then boosted the cash balance. AN ATTENTIVE JURY It took all day Tuesday, Oct. 9 to seat a jury. They began hearing testimony Wednesday morning, continued Thursday and on Friday, listened to witnesses from 8 a.m. until 8:30 p.m., when they retired to deliberate and have dinner. Throughout the proceedings, the jury submitted eleven of their own questions to Circuit Court Judge James O. Shelfer. After receiving one query late Friday afternoon, the judge opened up the folded piece of paper and exclaimed, Good question! and then posed it to the witness. After about two-and-a-half hours, they returned with a verdict. I praise God for the victory and am thankful to the jurors, who, after weighing all the evidence, ruled in my favor, Odum said. In recent years Odum, who serves as a visiting minister at area churches, has worked as a senior health administrator. He began at Liberty Correctional Institution and is now working at Calhoun Correctional Institution. He is ready to return to his former position, although he said he does not know when it will be or at what facility he will work. I do not see it affecting Rachels job, he said of current Calhoun-Liberty Health Department Director Rachel Manspeaker. He said he was supportive of her hiring and said she was a great choice for the job. As of press time, Odum said he had not been contacted about where he would be working and when he would start. ODUM TRIAL CONTINUED FROM THE FRONT PAGE Attorney Marie Mattox questions Dr. Bonnie Sorensen, former state health department director. She said the situation with the Liberty County Health Department had been a saga of sorts.

Page 18 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCT OBER 17, 2012 LCHS FOOTBALLby Richard Williams, Journal sports writerJust a few weeks ago Micah McCaskill was playing quarterback at the junior varsity level, but Oct. 12 he led Liberty Countys varsity squad to a 27-18 victory over the visiting Bozeman Bucks. McCaskill became the fourth LCHS player in the quarterback position this season. The Bulldogs called on the ninth grader at quarter back due to a rash of injuries that have hit LCHS. Liberty Head Coach Grant Grantham said 10 players are currently questionable for next week with at least three of those known to be unavailable. McCaskill and the Bulldogs started on offense, and the ninth grader led Liberty on a seven play scoring drive capped by a Harold Armstrong rushing touchdown with 9:08 remaining in pass to Michael Robinson. Grantham said Robinson had a solid game for Liberty, I thought he played hard all night and really carried the ball well for us. Libertys defense held and forced Bozeman to punt and the Bulldogs went back to work on offense and once again moved the ball on the Bucks. This time Ryan Rea bobbled snap. Bozeman went to the air and scored on a 15-yard pass Ben Beckwith scored the only touchdown of the second quarter on a 45-yard run. The extra point was 100 rushing yards for the Bulldogs in the non-district contest. Grantham said he felt McCaskill had a solid few things they do different on JV and that caused a few problems, but overall I thought he handled the transition really well. I also thought the rest of the team responded well to him and were supportive Harold Armstrong scored his second touchdown of the game with 4:41 remaining in the fourth quarter. Armstrong was the leading rusher for Liberty with 117. The extra point put Liberty Libertys defense kept the Bucks from cutting into the LCHS lead until late in the fourth quarter. The Bucks nine seconds left to play. Stedman Dawson led Libertys defense with seven tackles and three assists. The banged up Bulldogs host the Blountstown Tigers Oct. 19 in a key district contest. The Tigers have the inside track to a district title, having already defeated Port St. Joe. Liberty has the Tigers and Port St. Joe remaining on their schedule. Grantham said his biggest problem in the week leadated by the injuries. We lost one more in practice Monday and we know he is out for the game, so that makes three we know dont have a chance of playing Friday night, Grantham said. Of those left I dont really feel comfortable saying they will or wont be able to play when game time comes. Grantham said the task isnt made any easier given the opponent. (Greg) Jordan has got a talented squad with probably the most talented linebackers we will play all year, and theyve got a lot of different offensive formations that can give you trouble even when youve got everyone ready to go, Grantham said. Despite the injuries Grantham said he felt Liberty would be ready to play. Grantham said his players know it is a district contest against their cross river rival. Grantham added that sometimes adversity brings out the best in a team, saying leaders rise when things start to go against you.

TERESA EEUBANkKS PHotoOTOSby Teresa EEubanks, Journal EditorBRISTOL A six-member Liberty County jury agreed with former Health Department Director David Odum, 68, that he should not have been fired and awarded him over $600,000 at the end of a four-day trial last week in Bristol. Just having my good name restored in the community is worth everything to me, Odum said after the trial. Attorney Marie Mattox told the jury three factors wrongly cost Odum his job: His boss wanted him to return from family medical leave, an employee exceeded her authority in several ways and he faced retaliation when he reported that misconduct. The jury ordered that the Florida Department of Health pay him lost wages and benefits totalling $307,766.18. Health Department Business Manager, Kelly King, was ordered to pay $300,000 compensation for causing Odum emotional pain and mental anguish through intentional interference. The jury agreed that Odum should be reinstated to his same position or an equivalent position along with rights, and that his attorneys fees would be paid. Odum oversaw both the Liberty County and Calhoun County Health Departments from 2000 through 2006. His role was reduced in 2006 and another administrator, Dr. Gene Charbonneau, was hired for the Liberty County Health Department while Odum continued to run the Calhoun County Health Department. In February 2009, Odum filed suit against the Florida Department of Health, the Calhoun County Commission, the Liberty County Commission, three individual county commissioners and Kelly King. The lawsuit claimed he had been falsely accused of harassing employees, mismanaging the budget In December 2011, the Liberty County Commission settled with Odum for $50,000. That settlement against former commissioners L.B. Arnold and John T. Sanders. A settlement was also reached with Calhoun County around the same time. The settlement agreement barred Odum from telling how much money he received, but he said, It was substantially less than Liberty County. MEEDIICAAL LEAEA VEE Employees can take up to three months of unpaid leave without it endangering their job, according to the U.S. Dept. of Labors Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). When David Odum learned about a facility in California that could help with his wifes crippling pain from fibromyalgia, they made plans to go. Odum received approval to take family medical leave beginning on Oct. 26, 2006. Ten days before leaving, he met with Florida Department of Health Director Dr. Bonnie Sorensen for his annual performance review. She gave him a glowing evaluation, noting, he is in the prime of his career and exceeds expectations. During testimony Friday morning, Sorensen acknowledged that she had commented that day to Odum, Your wife doesnt look sick. It must be nice going on FMLA in South Lake Tahoe, California. A little over two months later, Sorensen called Odum. I expressed my concern to Mr. Odum that it might be a good idea to come back and at least have a presence in the David Odum is shown during a break during Fridays testimony at the Liberty County Courthouse.Fired Health Dept.

Bill Peacock, Altha To the editor: Last month my wife Brooke and I photographed a wedding on St. George Island for a beautiful couple from north Georgia. The groom is in the Coast Guard and the bride, Caitlyn, is a nurse at a childrens hospital that specializes in childrens cancer. Her family spoke of her compassion for children stricken with cancer and how she volunteered much of her spare time working with them. What they didnt know is that over the past several months, as I ran, I prayed RRunner raising money for Lighthouse Family RRetreatfor a way to make my running less about me and more about God and for him to show me a way to help others through my running. A huge light came on as I was editing the images from that wedding. And after several conversations with the bride and much prayer, an awesome opportunity has come about to help a great cause. This Sunday, Oct. 21, Im running my very 13.1 miles!) in Apalachicola. For every minute Im under the two hour mark, Im asking people to pledge $1 that will be donated to the Lighthouse Family Retreat, which is a charity that Caitlyn keeps very close to her heart and after researching it, mine as well. Lighthouse Family Retreat allows families affected by childhood cancer to: Have a weeklong stay at the beach, forget the innumerable stresses of the world, allow the children to bond with others in their same situation and allow families to learn special ways to handle childhood cancer. Theres more info on their website at www. lighthousefamilyretreat. org. If you (like myself) have been touched by this endeavor to help others, you can facebook message, email, or even call me at (850) 643-7893 and pledge your $1 a minute. are posted Ill contact all who pledged to collect the donations, which can be made payable directly to Lighthouse Family Retreat. How much will you be in for? Well, a two hour time is roughly 13.1 9 minute miles. My personal best in training is 1:52:31 and Im hoping to run around a 1:50. So $10...Thats not bad.

Jacob Alexander was born in Edgar in 1931 and died in 2009 in San Francisco at the age of 78. His life and art echoes many of the hardships and joys he experienced growing up in the depression in the rural South. As a small boy he watched as every scrap of cloth, that wasnt being worn, was reincarnated into a colorful quilt. Family and neighborhood quilting bees were a part of the rhythm of his young life. He joined the U. S. Air Force in 1948, serving in Korea and twice in Vietnam; completing 20 years, three months and 19 days in 1968. He went on to complete his BA and MA and taught African History, African American History and African American Literature at Miami Dade Community College. It was during this period that he traveled extensively in East and West Africa, toured the U.S. and further developed his expressive art form. He said, The pieces I fabricate are Southeast Asia, as well as the sadness and destruction, the snake dances of Japan, Bombay and Kwanza Festivals in Miami and my experiences in the classroom and urban streets. I create and organize these fabrics as a poetic expression of my emotions. The dynamic nature of the colors, as well as the degree of aesthetic function, is a distillation of my thoughts and emotions that are both spontaneous and planned. Jacob Alexanders textile art has been features in galleries such as the Museum of African American Art in Los Angeles, CA and closer to home in the Harambee Arts and Culture Heritage Festival in Tallahassee. Alexander had close ties to this area. His brother, Herbert Alexander, was past Dean of the FAMU School of Education. The exhibit is on loan to the Blountstown Public Library through Thanksgiving by Harmon Brody, a long-time personal friend of the Alexanders. Jacob Alexander is survived by his wife, Sondra Alexander and owner of Yangki. She is known for couture wall-coverings of hand painted patterns. Brody tells of helping Jacob build the tables and looms that Sondra uses for painting her fabrics. It is from the scraps of these hand painted patterns that Alexander created his textile art. For more about Jacob Alexander or his wife, Sondra, go to www.jacobalexanderart.come, or www.yangki. com/products.html.

Page 10 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTo OBER 17, 2012 COMMENTARYMy doorbell rang as I was starting this column. A man and a woman representing Americans for Prosperity were ringing doorbells for Romney. Their handout had all the right-wing propaganda and talking points. Recognizing who they were and what they represented, I said let us talk about the issues. We did. It was a cordial exchange of views, as it should be. The thrust of their argument is that President Obama is totally responsible for the national debt. I pointed out that they should began with President Bushs 2001 and 2003 tax cuts. Further, Bush then put the cost of two wars and Medicare Part D on the national credit card. Bushs national debt to $10 trillion dollars. Thats a fact, something that Republicans rarely embrace. I then pointed out that because the U.S. is still operating under and with cal policies, the U.S. is going to incur an annual now till Hell freezes over. It doesnt matter who the president is, Romney or Obama, the numbers are the numbers. It is what it is, and no amount of political blather from either party will change the numbers. The only solution is decreased cost and increased taxes. If you want it, pay for it. The Americans for Prosperity fellow countered with it all began with Clinton. My response was that Im not defending President Clinton because he made a critical mistake in agreeing with the Republicans in Congress to the cancellation of the 1933 Glass-Stengall Act which prevented banks from engaging in the sale of stocks and securities. If Clinton had not agreed on the demise of Glasscollapse of 2008 probably would not have occurred. But the free market truebelievers like Governor Romney are responsible lief that markets are rational is pure folly. This fellow brought up the stimulus and what a budget breaking deal that was. I made the point that the only way to recover from an economic depression was for the government to spend money in the short term then deal with the long term issues with cost cuts, tax reform and tax increases, when required. This fellow countered with the comment that President Roosevelt tried a stimulus that didnt work and created a new recession. I pointed out his lack of facts, which is that the New Deal spending worked, but Republicans talked Roosevelt into a cost-cutting binge that actually created a downturn in the New Deal recover. Look at the historical numbers, not political rhetoric. Approximately $288 billion of the stimulus was allocated to tax relief for individuals. Another $144 billion was sent to the states to help with state budgets. Approximately $111 billion was allocated for infrastructure projects. My local economy received some of the infrastructure money to pave state roads and build a large overpass and intersection at the local airport that has employed a workforce for the past three years. In addition, local companies supplied concrete and building materials. I would have continued the dialog with this couple, but the woman, who had not said anything during our exchange, suggested to the man that they move on. I was just getting warmed up. At one time, Presidential elections were a great American spectacle. Both sides would, more or less, tell what they stood for, all the while lambasting each other. Somehow, the two parties werent that far apart on issues. Most of us believed that no matter who bewould be bipartisan compromise on the main issues that affected most of us most of the time.Believing that, I voted for a number of Republican presidents. Eisenhower, Reagan and Bush Senior whom my wife and I met when I was the Vice Wing Commander at Homestead Air Base south of Miami. In my opinion, Bush Senior should have had a second term, but he had to raise taxes and the right-wing extremists in his party burned him at the political stake. There were not enough moderate Republicans in the party to save him from the right-wing social conservatives, a group to which Bush Senior never pandered. Americas presidential campaigns have changedchanged for the worse. Who is at fault? We the people are at fault. Why? Intolerance for others. America is a dangerously divided camp of which no good can come. If comments in my local newspapers Spout Off column are any indication of what people really think about this place called America, then we are in a lot of trouble. They hate anyone, anything, any idea, and any issue that is remotely associated with the word liberal. It doesnt matter that most of them are on the government dole, part of Romney 47% of sluggards. They hate the guvment. Im a numbers guy. Ive looked at Romneys proposals, at least what he can describe. You cant make a judgment about the effect of reducing IRS tax deductions unless you know what tax reductions will be canceled. Romney wont say. If you cancel all tax deductions like the home mortgage interest rate deduction, the total savings will not cover Romneys 20% lowering of the tax rate, whatever that is. He wont say. If you want your Social Security account to be on Wall Street, then vote for Romney. If the markets decline, which they will, check your account. In 2008, the balance would have been zip. If you want a voucher of some unknown amount sent to you by Romney with the ininsurance, then vote for Romney. If a woman wants Mr. Ryan to decide what healthcare she should receive, then vote for Romney/Ryan. Check with them. They can decide if you should have birth control pills. Youve been raped and want an abortion. Check with Romney/Ryan and see if it OK. Government in your bedroom. What could possibly be wrong with that? If a decade of war in the Middle East hasnt been enough for you. If we havent killed enough American servicemen on this fools folly, then vote for Romney. You, your son, daughter, or your grandchildren can get an all-expense paid trip to Syria. However, they have to wear combat boots and carry that plan? In spite of Republican efforts to suppress the vote, if you are able to vote, cast your vote for the America of your choice on November 6.CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Front door encounter; a cordial exchangeIt doesnt matter who the president is, Romney or Obama, the numbers are the numbers.

OCTo OBER 17, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 11 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Game two in the presidential world seriesWASHINGTON Debates are often decided on imagery Nixon perspiring, George H. W. Bush looking at his watch, Gore yawning but not when substantive issues are determinative. In the BidenRyan vice presidential debate, issues were determinative, which is why the vice presidents smirking, while not appealing, was largely irrelevant. His condescension, on the other hand, served a purpose. While such behavior is not endearing, it can be devastating for the person on the receiving end if it succeeds in minimizing and marginalizing his status, credibility and maturity. Still, in a substantive debate, looks, images, attitudes and mannerisms are peripheral issues. he allowed Gov. Romneys claims and charges to go unanswered, so Rep. Paul Ryan lost against Vice President Joe Biden for the same reason. Ryan said he would cut taxes 20 percent, but when pressed by moderator Martha Raddatz to explain how he would pay for this, he responded that it would be accomplished on a bipartisan eliminate the mortgage interest deduction, a deduction very dear to homeowners hearts. After Ryan denounced the administrations handling of Irans nuclear ambitions, he failed to say what he would do differently. Ryan said he would not tell the enemy when he would pull our troops out of Afghanistan, just after having said he agrees with the administrations policy to pull the troops out rescue plan was a giveaway that did not create jobs. Then, when reminded by Biden, he admitted he had twice written letters to the vice president requesting aid for Wisconsin because it would help create jobs. And so it went, on and on. Unlike the president the previous week, the vice president let nothing pass. He countered assertion by assertion, but more voids left by Ryan. It was not that Ryan was unprepared or unrehearsed. Rather, his controversial budget ideas are incomplete at best and irrational at worst and they did not stand up under the glaring lights of a vice presidential debate. All this lays the stage for the Oct. 16 and 22 Obama and Ryan played it safe and lost. In the upcoming debates neither President Obama nor Gov. Romney can afford to hold back. Romneys primary job will be to complete his agenda, including the he has less than four days to do it. Obamas primary necessary to refute what he claims are Romneys misstatements and altered positions. As a result, the next two debates will likely set viewing records and the viewing publics increased knowledge of civics and current events will prove to be the big winner.

OCTo OBER 17, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 13 When he replied that his wifes treatment would end in a couple of weeks, Sorensen said she stated, Its only a plane ticket to you and suggested he make the trip. He did. I had no problem with him wanting to extend his leave but I was very concerned about the perception since he was the full time administrator over two counties, she said. While on leave, Odum said he averaged three hours a day responding to emails and approving timesheets. During closing arguments late that afternoon, Mattox asked the jury, How do you go from being one of the best to BUCKED HIS AUTHORITY According to the lawsuit, Kelly King, business manager for both health departments, filed a false complaint against Odum, harassed him and created a hostile environment for him. Kelly King also prepared bogus spending plans for Fiscal Year 2007, that showed Calhoun Countys cash-to-budget ratio dropping to well below legislative mandates, and then back again to well above that ratio, which had the effect of presenting an utterly false portrait about the Plaintiff and his job performance, the lawsuit alleges. While Odum was on medical leave, most of his contact with King was by email. When he returned, Odum found things were not being handled as he thought they should be, including the advertisement and hiring of a Health Educator Cosultant position that he had instructed her to take care of. She bucked his authority, Mattox told the jury. She changed the requirements directives on a number of fronts. COUNSELING MEMO After his return, Odum prepared a four and a half page letter addressing the problems that he intended to give to King. He took the counseling memo to I was frankly, quite surprised at the letter, Sorensen said. I asked him not to give the letter to her. I told him to sit down and talk with her. In the letter, Odum told King, Upon my return I was surprised by some of the independent, administrative decisions you advice even though I was immediately available to you electronically. The letter pointed out issues with the Tobacco Prevention Program, which resulted in a loss of some funding because neither the Calhoun or Liberty County Health Department had an active SWAT club. Although funding was received for schools and other sponsored events no SWAT activities were reported. of the Health Educator Consultant position in which King changed the requirements from education to work experience. I asked that the wording from the CDHPE Guidebook be used when advertising the position, i.e. the successful candidate will be a health professional, e.g. Registered Nurse, Nutritionist, etc., with knowledge of public health, chronic diseases, etc. Odum stated in the letter. He later learned that the job ad had been posted later than he had requested, was given the job, making her the only one in the state hired for that position without a degree. Thirty-eight applicants responded to an ad for the same position at the Calhoun County Health Department. Odum was also concerned that several Calhoun County residents were hired for positions with the Liberty County Health Department, an issue that upset Liberty County Commissioners. While Dr. Charbonneau was the hiring authority at the time, Odum felt King had used her position to ensure those people were hired. Several other issues were listed in the letter, including a Medicaid Rate reduction. I was surprised that I was neither consulted nor informed about the rate reduction and was only made aware when receiving the report after the fact, according to Odum. He also expressed concern that she had not consulted him before making some staff changes, he said he was caught by surprise when he learned she had been representing his interests in efforts to Center in Bristol, and didnt understand why she took off time between Christmas and New Years without giving him any notice when he had already approved the same timeframe of leave for another employee. I was not aware you were taking off and saw no email appointing a successor during your absence. Odum said he met with King, had Nursing Director Lisa Taylor sit in as a witness, and went over the letter. King denied they ever spoke about the letter. A GOOD RELATIONSHIP DRASTICALLY CHANGED Until the very end, we had a good relationship, King said about working with Odum. But when he returned from family medical leave, that drastically changed. She said she began to believe her job was in jeopardy because he started questioning my work product. She said they didnt have conversations; he communicated with her through emails that were insinuating that I was doing something wrong. A couple of those emails were introduced into evidence and included lists of questions from Odum to King. In one, he asked about transfers she made without his approval or signature, discussed details in the account for the mosquito program, talked about ordering a new desk, and asked her to poll other they accepted credit card payments from patients. King admitted making a serious error in the budget, putting a $30,000 grant in the wrong column, affecting the ending cash balance. I corrected it within a couple of days, King said, explaining it then boosted the cash balance. AN ATTENTIVE JURY It took all day Tuesday, Oct. 9 to seat a jury. They began hearing testimony Wednesday morning, continued Thursday and on Friday, listened to witnesses from 8 a.m. until 8:30 p.m., when they retired to deliberate and have dinner. Throughout the proceedings, the jury submitted eleven of their own questions to Circuit Court Judge James O. Shelfer. After receiving one query late Friday afternoon, the judge opened up the folded piece of paper and exclaimed, Good question! and then posed it to the witness. After about two-and-a-half hours, they returned with a verdict. I praise God for the victory and am thankful to the jurors, who, after weighing all the evidence, ruled in my favor, Odum said. In recent years Odum, who serves as a visiting minister at area churches, has worked as a senior health administrator. He began at Liberty Correctional Institution and is now working at Calhoun Correctional Institution. He is ready to return to his former position, although he said he does not know when it will be or at what facility he will work. I do not see it affecting Rachels job, he said of current Calhoun-Liberty Health Department Director Rachel Manspeaker. He said he was supportive of her hiring and said she was a great choice for the job. As of press time, Odum said he had not been contacted about where he would be working and when he would start.

Page 18 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTo OBER 17, 2012 LCHS FOOTBALLby Richard Williams, Journal sports writerJust a few weeks ago Micah McCaskill was playing quarterback at the junior varsity level, but Oct. 12 he led Liberty Countys varsity squad to a 27-18 victory over the visiting Bozeman Bucks. McCaskill became the fourth LCHS player in the quarterback position this season. The Bulldogs called on the ninth grader at quarterback due to a rash of injuries that have hit LCHS. Liberty Head Coach Grant Grantham said 10 players are currently question-able for next week with at least three of those known to be unavailable. McCaskill and the Bulldogs started on offense, and the ninth grader led Liberty on a seven play scoring drive capped by a Harold Armstrong rushing touchdown with 9:08 remaining in pass to Michael Robinson. Grantham said Robinson had a solid game for Liberty, I thought he played hard all night and really carried the ball well for us. Libertys defense held and forced Bozeman to punt and the Bulldogs went back to work on offense and once again moved the ball on the Bucks. This time Ryan Rea bobbled snap. Bozeman went to the air and scored on a 15-yard pass Ben Beckwith scored the only touchdown of the second quarter on a 45-yard run. The extra point was 100 rushing yards for the Bulldogs in the non-district contest. Grantham said he felt McCaskill had a solid few things they do different on JV and that caused a few problems, but overall I thought he handled the transition really well. I also thought the rest of the team responded well to him and were supportive Harold Armstrong scored his second touchdown of the game with 4:41 remaining in the fourth quarter. Armstrong was the leading rusher for Liberty with 117. The extra point put Liberty Libertys defense kept the Bucks from cutting into the LCHS lead until late in the fourth quarter. The Bucks nine seconds left to play. Stedman Dawson led Libertys defense with seven tackles and three assists. The banged up Bulldogs host the Blountstown Tigers Oct. 19 in a key district contest. The Tigers have the inside track to a district title, having already defeated Port St. Joe. Liberty has the Tigers and Port St. Joe remaining on their schedule. Grantham said his biggest problem in the week leadated by the injuries. We lost one more in practice Monday and we know he is out for the game, so that makes three we know dont have a chance of playing Friday night, Grantham said. Of those left I dont really feel comfortable saying they will or wont be able to play when game time comes. Grantham said the task isnt made any easier given the opponent. (Greg) Jordan has got a talented squad with probably the most talented linebackers we will play all year, and theyve got a lot of different offensive formations that can give you trouble even when youve got everyone ready to go, Grantham said.
