Business owners must pay a $25 fee each year and anyone wanting to conduct sales in the city must also get a license through City Hall. Several signs were recently placed around Blountstown displaying the text of Ordinance No. 2012-03, which reads in part: It shall be unlawful for any person or entity to carry on, conduct, or engage in any commercial, retail, wholesale, manufacturing, service, trade or profession or to use in connection therewith any vehicle, premises, equipment, materials or device, in whole or in part the city, so theres no excuse for anybody to say Manager Emory Pierce. He called it a proactive effort and acknowledged that there will be updates to the ordinance in the future, but it will take some time. There will be 101 little picky situations that he said.

Namun McClellan was arrested Thursday and charged with three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation, according to a report from the Liberty County Sheriffs The activity came to light when one of the girls asked one of her sisters if McClellan had touched her. She learned that he had, and then they discovered the third sister had also been a victim of his advances and had been forced to perform sexual acts on him. The incidents took place in both Calhoun and Liberty County, at the home of the girls as well as relatives homes. McClellan was picked up at a relatives home in Bristol by Capt. Mark Mallory of the Calhoun County on Sept. 25. During questioning, McClellan admitted that he had improper sexual contact with all three girls numerous times, beginning when they were all under 12 years of age. He told investigators the activity had happened at a home in Sam Atkins Park and at a Pine Island residence in Calhoun County as well as at his grandmothers home in Bristol. He said it started several years ago. He said he kissed and touched the girls and admitted putting their hands and their mouths on his genitals. He said the activity happened with one girl a couple of times, and 20 to 30 times with another. Namun advised that he knew this activity was wrong and illegal...and stated that he felt he should report noted. During an interview on Sept. 28, one of the girls stated that Namun had been molesting her for the past two years on at least six occasions, with the most recent incident happening a month ago. She said she later told another relative that he had touched her because she began bleeding, had become swollen and developed a urinary tract infection. The girl said her mother had tried to talk them out of coming forward because she feared they would be taken into foster care. Another sister said she was just nine years old when he began touching her, going under her clothing and touching her inside and outside of her privates. She reported the last encounter between them was two or three weeks earlier. The third victim said Namun began getting her alone and abusing her when she was ten years old At times, an older relative would be asleep elsewhere in the home when he was with her, she said.NamunAMUN McCClellanLELLAN ARREST REPORTS BBristol man arrested for sexually molesting 3 girlsA wallet left behind by two visitors to the Calhoun-Liberty Hospital ER was found when they returned but the cash inside was missing, according to a report from the Blountstown Police Department. the wallet, they opened it and discovered the $60 that had been inside was missing. waiting room was reviewed, a black female identified as Charlesa Aldridge, was seen picking up the wallet.

Failure to follow city codes could result in a business having their license pulled. Roadside vendors and doorto-door salespeople will also come under scrutiny. They will have to make themselves known will have a better idea of who is legitimately doing business and perhaps deter scammers and those offering unsafe products. Shoemake said one big concern is that theres no way to track down whos responsible should someone get tainted food from a roadside vendor. We want to be able to keep a record of whos in town making door to door sales, he said. Some council members, Just want to know whos traveling around the city selling stuff, Pierce said, explaining that in the application, temporary vendors passing through town will have to give proof of criminal record. The information compiled will be helpful during emergency situations, particularly with the many small group homes that care for older and disabled residents. We now know where they are in case of an electrical outage and can concentrate on getting them back in service sooner, Pierce said. Its not a tax and its not the license fee. Hopefully, it will help improve the look of downtown Blountstown and protect the health of our citizens. As of this week, city hall has issued 119 business licenses, according to Assistant City Manager Traci Hall. Churches also licensed but not charged. The ordinance does not apply to fundraisers and special events.BLOUNTSTOWN BUSINESS OORDINaANCE coCONTINUED FroROM THE FroRONT PAGE CChipola offers help for Health and L.TT studentsMARIANNAChipola College may be able to provide assistance for certain students who enroll in Information Technology or Health related programs.

TT uesday, Oct. 30 from 6-8 p.m. (ET) The race for State Attorney will be near the top of this years November ballot. Pete Williams is a Tallahassee attorney who is challenging 28 year incumbent Willie Meggs. Williams last April, stating that it was time for the voters to have a choice and a change. Williams educational background includes a BA in Economics from Yale University, a MBA from Stanford University and a law degree from the University of Florida. He has over 20 years of seras an Assistant State Attorney, where he handled thousands of violent crimes and tried over 100 jury trials. He then served as Assistant Attorney General, Director of the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, and Inspector General for both the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Department of Education. In January 2003, Pete was appointed by then Attorney General Charlie Crist to a four year term as Floridas Statewide Prosecutor. He was based in Tallahassee and supervised 40 Assistant Statewide Prosstate, with an annual budget of $6 million. charged with investigating and prosecuting organized criminal activity such as net crimes against children and public corruption, and achieved conviction rates of over 95%. Williams is running to reinvigorate the cludes resolving cases more quickly, supporting and partnering with law enforceprosecutorial resources, more active recruitment and training of young prosecutors, and increased use of new, innovative and costeffective rehabilitative sentencing programs to help offenders become productive members of society. He believes the current State Attorney has been slow to bring the State Attorneys age, and that the main ofrale and high turnover among the young prosecutors. All the good, senior prosecutors have retired and the new ones are leaving because they say it is no longer fun to work there, said Williams. Our current State Attorney has done some good things in the past, but the last four years have been marked by too many controversial cases, such as the failure to prosecute former Wakulla County Sheriff David Harvey, the botched prosecution of the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, Ray Sansom, that will cost the taxpayers $800,000, and his sudden retirement for 30 days that was done for no other reason than to allow Mr. Meggs to collect both his regular $150,000 annual salary and another $100,000 a year in retirement pay. Williams added. We should ask our elected leaders to set better examples and act like they are accountable to the voters. I pledge fair and equal justice and am working hard to earn your vote! Williams is married with four children, three of whom attend Roberts Elementary School in northeast Tallahassee. He has been endorsed by the NRA and the PBA, the states largest law enforcement association.

Republican right-wingers along with their megaphone, Fox News, are busy as beavers creating a faux October Surprise for President Obama...Benghazi Gate. According to the right-wing cacophony, the Obama administration is covering up the facts surrounding the destruction of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya in which the U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans were killed. I dont know why the administration initially reported that the attackers were a group protesting I dont know what happened and neither do all the right-wingers who are wailing for President Obamas head on a stake. This is politics at its worst. What I do know from three decades in the military is that the are usually wrong. If I had a serious event occur in my command, I reported the basic information to my commander with the comment details to follow. Whether the initial comments from the Obama administration were correct or not does not matter one whit. The fact is that the consulate was attacked and four people killed. I know very well how the government works. The State Department will do what we would do in the Department of Defense. Find out what happened, who is responsible, was there any dereliction of duty by anyone in the chain of command, and most important, can this event be prevented in the future. Right-wingers have already decided that Obama and his administration are guilty of something, hang somebody. Terrorist attacks against America have occurred for decades, and it doesnt matter who is president, Obama or Romney, Americas enemies, which are legion, will continue to attack America. barracks in Beirut during Reagans administration. No one accused Reagan of failing to protect American interests abroad. Terrorists blew up the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi during the Clinton administration. No one accused Clinton of dereliction of duty. Ive been in the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, China. The embassy is a large grey building on a normal residential street, or it was when I was there. A six-foot high metal rod fence much like those around ings here in the U.S. surrounded staffed the reception desk. The point is that U.S. embassies and consulate buildings around the world are not fortresses. A wellarmed militant force can easily overwhelm host country guards. The right-wing manufacturing of a pseudo October Surprise was derailed by the announcement of a diplomatic bombshell that the Iranians have agreed to face-toface talks with the U.S. about the Iranian nuclear development program. I watch all the news channels, left and right, to get a sense of what is real news and what is political trash talk. With the announcement of U.S./Iranian talks, I dialed in Fox News. As expected, Fox pundits were in a whirling dervish of spin control. Since the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Fox News has spent about 90 percent of its airtime fabricating an Obama conspiracy and cover up concerning the incident. According to Fox, the news that talks are to occur is an Obama lie designed to win the coming foreign policy debate with Governor Romney. If that spin wont sell, then it must be that the Iranian Ayatollah is afraid of a President Romney and will help Obama get re-elected because Obama is a soft touch. Romneys foreign policy is as vague as his domestic policy. Hes going to get tough with China and Iran. As best one can tell, Romney is listening to neocons from the Bush Administration, and his foreign policy is an extension of George Bushs foreign policy Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTo OBER 24, 2012 COMMENTARYCORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Late Night LaughsA recaRECAP oOF recentRECENT obOBSerER Vation ATIONS by BY lateLATE niNIGhtHT tV TV hoHOStTS.Benghazi Gate: Whos guilty of what?

OCTo OBER 24, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorBLOUNTSTOWN A diagnosis of lung cancer has ended the campaign of a candidate in the Calhoun County Superintendent of Schools election. Julie Leonard Smith, 74, she had decided to withdraw from the race due to a serious illness. She learned she had cancer on Aug. 29. Just two weeks ago, she had vowed to stay in the race, telling The Journal, I feel like this may be the last opportunity I have to do anything like this in my lifetime...so Im going to do it and Im going to do it my way. It will be business as usual. But a recent series of radiation treatments have convinced her otherwise. as bad as I thought, she said Monday. Then I realized with the way I felt, and after talking to doctors, that it was a fools withdraw. She said it wouldnt be fair to the people of Calhoun County appreciate so much the wonderful people who worked for me (in the campaign). I wish things could be different but the man upstairs decided that it wouldnt be. It was with great regret and some relief that she announced her decision to quit the race. Whether she was pedaling along the dirt roads of Blountstown in a child-sized toy airplane in the mid-1940s, dealing with her colleagues in the Virginia House of Delegates in her mid-40s Julie Leonard Smith is used to kicking up a little dust. A Calhoun County native, she graduated from Blountstown degrees in Applied Music & Voice and History. She and her late husband, J.A. Daniel Smith, a Commander in the U.S. Navy, lived in Virginia for 30 years, where they raised their family. She served three terms in Virginia House of Delegates, representing Virginia Beach. Her husband died in 1992. In 1994, she returned to Calhoun County. In 1999, she began working as a substitute teacher meetings, including a gathering with the business community to discuss issues with Governor Rick Scott earlier this year in expresses her strong opinions. Now, as she looks ahead to an uncertain future, shes treasuring her past growing up in Calhoun County. Its been a wonderful life. Ive had my down times, but Ive had some wonderful opportunities and achievements in my life, she said, adding, I had the most wonderful childhood a person could have. Ive been very vital and active since I was a little girl running the streets of Blountstown in the 1940s, she recalls. At that time, a lot of men had gone to war. Those left at home worked. And while there may have been some half-hearted supervision, children had a lot of freedom. We roamed this little ole town every day, she said about herself and her friends, a group of kids ranging in age from around four to eight who hung out together. They were known as The Courthouse Gang, she said. We had some of the biggest times, she recalled. Most of those she grew up with are still living, she said, and are still close. Im sure its a very rare connection in society today to have that bond with so many people that you grew up with and kept in touch with, she said, emphasizing: People you are close with, not acquaintances. The Gang included her first cousin, Hayes Leonard, and John Charles Peacock. Other members of the group have moved away but one, Mary Lou Adams Gunther who lives in St. Petersburg, came to stay with her a few days last week. She recalls when there was only one only paved road and the rest of Blountstown was tied together with little dirt roads. She said she was probably around six years old when her father, Henry C. Leonard, gave her a special Christmas gift: A enough for her to cruise around in. It was silver with stars on The scene was complete when an uncle had a pilots uniform tailor made for her. She proudly suited up, started pumping the pedals and literally went to town, taking off from her home that once She admits she wasnt the most observant driver and often pedaled through the towns only red light with little thought. I paid no attention to the red light, but people paid attention to me, fortunately. Her favorite destination was Nell and Oren Clemmons Standard Oil station, located on the property now known as She said she would pull up as though her little airplane would come out and pretend to pump fuel for her. Once she often to the courthouse to meet her friends. Nowadays, shes traveling the roads almost every day to 17 days or so with radiation, she said Monday afternoon. My daughter from Virginia is coming down on Sunday. Next week well meet with the doctors and see where we go from here. While disappointed at having to give up her campaign, she is focused on good things, explaining, Ive been blessed and Im at peace...I can truthfully say that. Her future is uncertain but she is taking comfort in the past, appreciative to have grown up in a small town during a special time. A time when a little girl could roll down dirt roads in her off again to kick up a little more dust.Smith withdraws from race following cancer diagnosis Julie Leonard Smith, at right, shakes hands with Gov.

A: It usually takes about four to six weeks after you settle into your new eating habits for your body to break down currently circulating cholesterol and show changes youve made in your eating habits, how high your cholesterol was to start with, and your genetics. According to the National Cholesterol Education Programs treatment guidelines, blood cholesterol levels should be checked after six weeks. If your levels arent on target, talk with your doctor about whether to continue what youve been doing or add additional dietary steps. Check cholesterol levels in another six weeks. If you and your doctor decided to continue your original changes and your LDL (bad) cholesterol is still not where your doctor suggests it should be, try a more comprehensive approach to dietary steps that can lower blood cholesterol before beginning medication. If you are overweight, losing weight is an important part of the picture. Healthy weight loss is gradual, so it may take several months to see its full impact. Reducing saturated and trans fat can usually lower blood cholesterol about 10 to 15 percent. A reasonable target for many people is to limit the total of these two fats to below 18 to 25 grams a day, but people with hardto-budge cholesterol may need to keep below 12 to 15 grams. ber plenty of vegetables and fruit, and daily dried beans, oatmeal or barley along with nuts, soy foods, and weight loss if you are overweight. These dietary changes can reduce LDL cholesterol 13 to 30 percent. Part of your diet strategy may also include plant sterols, which are added to certain margarines. If your blood cholesterol remains high, you may need medication, but many people give up on dietary changes too easily. See a registered dietitian to help you create changes that will work for you if you need help. To locate an RD, ask your doctor for a referral, or check the website www.eatright.org and click on Find a Registered Dietitian. Q: Is there a nutritional advantage to choosing fresh versus canned pumpkin? A: No. Both fresh and canned pumpkin are excellent choices, as long as the canned pumpkin you choose is plain, solid pack pumpkin and not sugar-laden pumpkin pie mix. Pumpkin is loaded with carotenoids, including both betaand alpha-carotene, as well as lutein and zeaxanthin, the antioxidants linked to protecting the lens and retina of our eyes. Betaand alpha-carotene may play a role in reducing our risk of cancer, because in lab studies, these compounds seem part of processes that help control cell growth, and they are both converted to retinol (vitamin A), important for immune function and possibly for activation of carcinogen-metabolizing enzymes. AICR/WCRFs expert report and its updates link foods high in carotenoids to lower risk of mouth, larynx and lunch cancers. While pumpkin is inexpensive and abundant at farmers markets and your grocery store, you might head toward fresh. Choose smaller cooking or sweet pumpkins. Peel and cut in cubes for stir-fries, chili and stew, and experiment with adding it to pasta dishes and enchiladas. Cut pieces will keep in the refrigerator, tightly wrapped, for about two days. You can also freeze it in uncooked chunks or as cooked pure. For those times when you want a smooth pumpkin pure to stir into soup or pasta sauce, canned versions are super-quick and nutritious. Canned pumpkin is not salted, so its about the same near-zero sodium as fresh pumpkin. Q: Type 2 diabetes runs in my family, what can I do to avoid getting it? A: People with a family history of type 2 diabetes do have greater odds of developing the disease, but research is clear that a healthy lifestyle can substantially cut risk, or at least help people live more years without diabetes. One of the most important steps for preventing type 2 diabetes is to reach and maintain a healthy weight. Excess body fat around your waist seems particularly linked with increased risk, even if you are not extremely overweight. Even modest weight loss reduces risk if you are overweight now. Type 2 diabetes stems from insulin resistance which is the bodys inability to use insulin effectively, despite producing plenty of it. Regardless of your weight, do enough physical activity so it adds up to 30 to 60 minutes daily. Daily physical activity seems to directly reduce insulin resistance in addition to reducing or preventing weight gain. Tobacco avoidance and healthy food choices also probably help: Vegetables, fruits, whole grains and dried beans contain antioxifor at least two-and-a half cups (preferably three-andat least three to four servings of whole grains. Limit processed meat and sugarsweetened drinks, since evidence suggests frequent consumption may increase risk of diabetes. And choose and limited lean red meat. All of these recommendations help you stay lean and also decrease risk for other chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease. Our genes can make us more vulnerable to diseases like diabetes, but the importance of lifestyle choices means theres no reason to feel doomed.The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) is the cancer charity that fosters research on the relationship of nutrition, physical activity and weight management to cancer risk, educates the public about the results.

Liberty opened the game with a ten play drive that ended after a holding and then a motion penalty converted a third and one into a third and 16 situation. After an incomplete pass, the Bulldogs punted to the Tigers. On their sixth play of the drive the Tigers almost scored when they broke a big run down the sidelines. The running back was chased down from behind but not before he moved the ball inside the Liberty 30-yard line. The drive ended on the next play when Stedman Dawson knocked the ball out of the running backs hand and then recovered it for LCHS. Liberty and the Blountstown traded punts and then Liberty struck. A big run by Harold Armstrong moved the ball deep into Tiger territory and then on second and long, Dustin Watson found a wide open Michael Robinson in the end zone for a touchdown four play drive the extra point gave Liberty a 7-0 lead. Robinson also had a leaping interception later in the game to kill a Tiger drive. Liberty stopped the Tigers late in the second half and then put together a nine play 74-yard drive.

In the second half the Tigers came out looking stronger and put points on the board with a nine play 64-yard drive. The Tigers used runs and passes moving. The Tigers were able to pound the ball dan hit Roosevelt Martin for a 15-yard completion Jordan then punched the ball in from two yards out to cut Libertys lead to 14-7. Liberty looked to be back on their heels and then Alex Marlowe struck back with a 43-yard kickoff return to the BHS 37 yardline. Watson and the Bulldogs drove the ball to the Tiger goal line and then Marlowe powered in from two yards out to put Liberty ahead 20-7. The extra point was pulled left as the Tigers came close to blocking the kick. en but LCHS stopped them again on fourth down to take over possession of the ball. The Tigers gained possession again only to be stopped when Teryal Jenkins intercepted Jordan in the last minute of the game. Bulldog QB Watson was 6-15 passing for 98 yards and 2 touchdowns. Marlowe led the Bulldog rushing attack with 56 yards on 15 carries. The Tigers leading rusher was Javakiel Brigham with 96 yards on nine carries.

By defeating the Blountstown Tigers, the Liberty County Bulldogs gave themselves the clearest path to the playoffs in Class A, District 4. Liberty has one district game remaining on Nov.2 against Port St. Joe. If Liberty wins that game, the Bulldogs secure the top spot in the district. If Port St. Joe wins Oct. 26 against winless West Gadsden and then defeats Liberty, the worst Liberty can do is a three-way tie with the Blountstown Tigers and Port St. Joe. The Blountstown Tigers playoff picture is only a bit foggier. If the Tigers win out, BHS will secure second place with a Liberty win over Port St. Joe or a West Gadsden win over Port St. Joe. If the Tigers and Port St. Joe both win out then those two teams will be joined by will be broken with a tie-breaker game. If the Tigers lose to either Franklin (26) or West Gadsden their playoff hopes are in jeopardy if Port St. Joe wins out. Playoff picture clearer

Another great part is we get to use the equipment on days the instructor is not here. We are very blessed in that the program is implemented by former Blountstown athletes Adam and Ben Faurot. Adam, CEO of Titus Sports Academy and Ben, the Director of Operations for Titus, both have strong ties to Calhoun County and are excited to be a part of our physical education curriculum.

Nowadays, people rarely think twice when they see pink ribbons, having grown accustomed to the pink ribbon and what it symbolizes. Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been celebrated each year since 1985, and many other breast cancer awareness initiatives have been devised since then. While the pink ribbon may seem like its been in use for just as long, it was actually established only about 20 years ago. Ribbons have long symbolized something important. For decades, yellow ribbons have been used to alert others to soldiers at war or hostages that hadnt yet come home. People often tie yellow ribbons around trees at home until their service men and women came home safely. During the height of HIV/AIDS activism and awareness, red ribbons were worn to symbolize support for those with the disease. Although the pink ribbon evolved because pink expresses femininity, calm, breast cancer ribbon was actually peach. Charlotte Haley is breast cancer ribbon in 1992. She was a breast cancer survivor and came from a family of women who also fought the disease. She created peach-colored loops at home and then distributed the ribbons at her local grocery stores. Haley encouraged people to wear the ribbons and contact legislators to demand more funding for breast cancer research. An attached note was distributed with the ribbons stating, The National Cancer Institute annual budget is $1.8 billion, only 5 percent goes for cancer prevention. Help us wake up our legislators and America by wearing this ribbon. The same year Evelyn Lauder, senior corporate vice president for the Estee Lauder company, and Self magazine editor Alexandra Penney teamed up to produce a pink ribbon. It was distributed at makeup counters all across the country. The company collected more than 200,000 pink ribbon petitions asking the U.S. government for increased funding for breast cancer research. Although Lauder and Haley reached people on different levels, their goals were the same: To educate the public on the lack of funds allotted to breast cancer research. Pink ribbons are now seen all over and have become the uniting force for millions of women who are facing breast cancer or supporting someone with the disease. In 1996, Nancy Nick created a blue-and-pink ribbon to symbolize male breast cancer ribbons in honor of her late father. The ribbons remind others that breast cancer can affect men as well as women. Although you can see waves of pink every October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many people don their ribbons year-round. Great strides have been made with respect to breast cancer, but with about 225,000 new cases popping up each year in the United States alone, there is still work to be done.How the pink ribbon became the symbol for breast cancer

If it doesnt wake the people up that have turned away from God, then I dont know what will. Everybody wonders what has happened to America. They have turned their backs on God. Theyre trying to take him out of everything. Next they will be telling us when we can worship God and what we say in our own churches. The churches are decreasing in attendance every week. People, you should be praying and studying Gods word, serving him all the time, not just when you feel like going to church. America used to be known as a Christian nation. The other countries like Iran, Russia and China knew they couldnt defeat America, but now they know its not a Christian nation and they can defeat us, because we are turned away from God. People get on your knees and turn back to God. Pray for our country, pray for the leaders of America and serve him every day. May God bless Mr. John Crocker and God bless The Calhoun-Liberty Journal for printing this message. Most of all, God Bless America.

Page 28 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTo OBER 24, 2012 I learned to ride a bike when I was about six years old. I remember climbing on, being pushed and told to pedal. Other than a few run-ins with gravity and physics, I rode like a champ from that point on. Fast forward a few decades. I decided to take up the sport of triathlon and discovered two things right away: First, I dont ride like a champ anymore and second, I had no idea how expensive and complicated bicycling had become. bikes and realized that good ones cost combined. When the shock wore off, I called my friend Lee to see if he still had his old 12-speed Trek. I had borrowed it from him once in 1989 to ride the St. Marks Trail, a 32-mile trip I made to impress a girl who was into riding. (For the record, it didnt work but it did give me a new appreciation for the internal combustion engine.) me I could use it but that I would need to take it in for a tune-up. I didnt even know that was a thing. But despite my better judgment, I listened to Lee and I took it to the local bike shop. Ninety dollars later, the bike was as good as new. But I was still a guy in my mid-40s, taking up an activity that would have been challenging even in my 20s. So I asked my friend John for some advice on how to make the experience less painful. He told me that I probably ought to invest in some really good bike shorts. Now it was my turn to laugh. Yeah, like Im going to cram myself into some ridiculous looking spandex pants and go out in public, I said. Of course, that was before I sitting on a bike seat roughly the size of an ax handle. Afterwards, I was back in the bike shop happily forking over $40 for shorts with the padded seat. And right then I didnt care if I did look like sausage bursting out of its casing. It was a choice between self-respect and comfort, and comfort won out by a wide margin. With the bike tuned and my butt padded, all that was left to do was start riding. Fortunately, I live across the street from my friend and boss, Joel, whos an accomplished bike racer and he and I started going regularly. Joel (without dying), drafting behind other bikers (without crashing) and riding up steep hills (without crying.) One day, though, Joel told me that he was getting a new bike and asked if I wanted to borrow the really nice bike he had been riding. I was thrilled. His Felt was a great bike and, after riding Lees old Trek, it was like graduating from a Ford to a Porsche. The only problem was that Joels bike had clips rather than cages on the pedals. That meant I had to wear special shoes (which he also loaned me). And it meant I would have to learn to twist my feet to the sides in order to get them free. I practiced several times on the grass before taking the bike out on the streets. It was an unnatural process, but after several tries I was able to pop my right foot out pretty quickly when I came to a stop. Still, I wasnt entirely comfortable with the arrangement so I mostly tried to avoid stopping unless it was absolutely necessary. And it became absolutely necessary one Sunday morning at a busy intersection with cars in front, behind and on either side of me. I had no choice but to come to a complete stop. About 50 yards from the light, I started trying to free my foot, becoming more and more desperate as my speed decreased. Finally, with my bike wobbling and me shaking my leg like a mad man, I managed to get my right foot free just as the bike stopped. What I failed to notice, however, was that all my effort had caused the bike to lean to the left. So while I was quietly celebrating the release of one foot, the bike was actually falling to the other side. At that point, it was too late to do anything except let gravity have its way with me. I hit the ground with a thud. A guy in the car next to me asked if I was okay and I noticed a few others laughing. I got up quickly, dusted myself off and rode away with the tiny shred of dignity I had left. But even that disappeared when I realized how this whole scene must have looked to a casual observer, especially one who didnt know my feet were clipped to the pedals. I can just imagine someone on the other side of the intersection seeing the bike slowly topple to the left as my In my mind I could picture them saying Other foot, idiot! Use your OTHER FOOT! I pedaled off thinking that this seemed so much easier when I was six.

OCTo OBER 24, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 29 OUTDOORSCorey Dolan of Tallahassee celebrated landing a 12.3-pound largemouth bass on Lake Talquin and released it Tuesday afternoon, trant in the Florida TrophyCatch program. TrophyCatch is an innovative program initiated Oct. 1 by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to reward anglers for being great resource stewards by legally catching and releasing trophy largemouth bass. on his last day off before starting a new job and was rewarded when he cast a rubber worm to a point of lily pads around 1:30 in the afternoon. His trophy struck ferociously and fought to escape by heading back toward the lily pads as Dolan manipulated both rod and trolling motor to land the 27-inchlong bass. Dolan checked out TrophyCatchFlorida.com from his smartphone and ultimately connected with the TrophyCatch hotline. FWC biologists Doug Engel and Joshua Gold arrived at Coes Landing an hour later to determine a short of the Hall of Fame mark (13 pounds) but qualifying for the Trophy Club. Dolan will receive $100 in gift cards from sponsors such as Bass Pro Shops, Dicks Sporting Goods and Rapala lures, plus a long-sleeve TrophyClub shirt from Bass King, and discounts from New Wave Taxidermy, FishPhoto Replicas and Sportsman On Canvas. KP Clements, the FWCs TrophyCatch coordinator, said that as the receive a special one-day entry pass to and is entered into drawings for other great prizes. with his mom while growing up in the struck hard and now hes molding his own rubber worms and hoping one day to catch the next record Florida heavier than 17.27 pounds. TrophyCatch includes three tiers to encourage reporting and live-releasing bass heavier than eight pounds that are caught in Florida waters. Bass eight to 9.9 pounds (Lunker Club) or those 10 to 12.9 pounds (Trophy Club) that are caught, documented and released can be reported online at TrophyCatchFlorida.com any time of the year. All that is required to qualify for the many scale with the weight visible and one on a tape measure or ruler showing the length. Bass heavier than 13 pounds that are caught between Oct. 1 and by FWC staff to verify the weight and take genetic samples. provided to the FWC for research will be entered into the Hall of Fame club, making the angler eligible for the prizes. The World Fishing Network is partnering with the FWC to promote and manage the trophy bass website. The biggest bass of the year entered into TrophyCatch will earn a Super Bowl-like ring, from the American Outdoors Fund, for the angler who catches it. If it is caught in Osceola County, the Kissimmee Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) will award the lucky angler $10,000. In addition, if the angler is receive $2,500 from the CVB. TrophyCatch will enable biologists by providing valuable incentives to anglers, such as Corey (Dolan), for reporting and releasing their catches of trophy bass, said Tom Champeau, director of the FWCs Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. The information will be used to evaluate and improve management strategies that produce more and larger bass. Of special interest is the fact that Lake Talquin has been the site of several largemouth-bass-stocking efforts as well as habitat improvement projects. Of the last 18 bass heavier than nine pounds caught in the lake and tested this year, seven were tagged, hatcheryIt is important for anglers to read and understand all the rules and details about rewards, which may change during the year, since they are provided by various sponsors, said Clements. However, just for registering, an angler is entered into a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat, Mercury motor and trailer. COMMITTED to serving you with integrity!

They assembled their own robots, also known as  Eco-bots  and control surfaces for the experiment. Then they tested the interaction between   the most effective environmental clean-up solution for a simulated  toxic spill. Why Robotics? From the Roomba that dances arms on the International Space Station, robots play a critical role in how we complete tasks. As part of the 2012 National Science Experiment, 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge, youth assembled their own Eco-Bots and control surfaces in order to manage an environmental clean-up. Research shows that youth who participate in 4-H are more likely to pursue careers in science, engineering, technology or math. Youth who participate in 4-H National Youth Science Day or other complementary programs and curricula show an increased interest in science and engineering through hands-on experiments that model robotics, programming and problem solving.

EnNGLanAND: In the past, Brits tossed objects such as stones, vegetables and nuts a form of fortune-telling. If a pebble thrown in the morning, then it was believed that the person who tossed the pebble would not survive another year. Halloween fell out of favor after the Protestant Reformation spread through the country. However, in recent years some have begun to adopt the American tradition of trick-or-treating. HOnNG KOnNG: A Halloween-type festival in Hong Kong is known as "Yue L Lan," which is the festival of the hungry ghosts. It is believed that, during this time, spirits roam the world for 24 hours. FranceRANCE: Halloween is considered an American holiday by most French and was relatively unknown before 1996. IreRELanAND: Ireland is thought to be the birthplace of Halloween, and many of the same traditions of old are still practiced today. In addition to costumes and treats, individuals may play an apple-bobbing game called "snap-apple," where participants have to try to take a bite of an apple suspended on a string. Children also play tricks on neighbors, including "knock-adolly," which is essentially a variation on "ring-and-run." SpanishPANISH-speakin SPEAKING na NA Ti I OnsNS: Many Spanish-speaking nations celebrate "El D Dia de los Muertos." It is supposed to be a joyous event where people remember friends and family members who have died. Candles and incense are burned to help the AUsSTria RIA: Some people will leave bread, water and a lighted lamp on the table on Halloween night before going to bed. It was once believed that such items would welcome the dead souls back to Earth on a night Austrians considered to be full of strong cosmic energies. CZechECHOsSLOVakia AKIA: Czechs place T There are enough chairs for each living and dead family member. ITa ALy Y : Halloween traditions have just recently begun to blossom in Italy, where decorations and pumpkins are popular. While many of the traditions borrow from the Americans, there is at least one uniquely Italian tradition taking place in the hill town of Corinaldo. L La Notte delle Streghe, "TThe Night of the Witches," occurs in this town with music, dancing and a witch-themed fashion show that names Miss Strega (Miss Witch). AUsS TraRA LiaIA: Halloween isn't as popular in Australia as it is in the U United States and Canada. Australians may celebrate Halloween as G Guy Fawkes Eve or Mischief Night. Children create mischief or get treats. Many Australians simply celebrate the holiday with a dance at their schools. Vote for and RRe-EElectPlease Vote Logan E.

Namun McClellan was arrested Thursday and charged with three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation, according to a report from the Liberty County Sheriffs The activity came to light when one of the girls asked one of her sisters if McClellan had touched her. She learned that he had, and then they discovered the third sister had also been a victim of his advances and had been forced to perform sexual acts on him. The incidents took place in both Calhoun and Liberty County, at the home of the girls as well as relatives homes. McClellan was picked up at a relatives home in Bristol by Capt. Mark Mallory of the Calhoun County on Sept. 25. During questioning, McClellan admitted that he had improper sexual contact with all three girls numerous times, beginning when they were all under 12 years of age. He told investigators the activity had happened at a home in Sam Atkins Park and at a Pine Island residence in Calhoun County as well as at his grandmothers home in Bristol. He said it started several years ago. He said he kissed and touched the girls and admitted putting their hands and their mouths on his genitals. He said the activity happened with one girl a couple of times, and 20 to 30 times with another. Namun advised that he knew this activity was wrong and illegal...and stated that he felt he should report noted. During an interview on Sept. 28, one of the girls stated that Namun had been molesting her for the past two years on at least six occasions, with the most recent incident happening a month ago. She said she later told another relative that he had touched her because she began bleeding, had become swollen and developed a urinary tract infection. The girl said her mother had tried to talk them out of coming forward because she feared they would be taken into foster care. Another sister said she was just nine years old when he began touching her, going under her clothing and touching her inside and outside of her privates. She reported the last encounter between them was two or three weeks earlier. The third victim said Namun began getting her alone and abusing her when she was ten years old At times, an older relative would be asleep elsewhere in the home when he was with her, she said.NAMUN MCCLELLAN ARREST REPORTS Bristol man arrested for sexually molesting 3 girlsA wallet left behind by two visitors to the Calhoun-Liberty Hospital ER was found when they returned but the cash inside was missing, according to a report from the Blountstown Police Department. the wallet, they opened it and discovered the $60 that had been inside was missing. waiting room was reviewed, a black female identified as Charlesa Aldridge, was seen picking up the wallet.

Failure to follow city codes could result in a business having their license pulled. Roadside vendors and doorto-door salespeople will also come under scrutiny. They will have to make themselves known will have a better idea of who is legitimately doing business and perhaps deter scammers and those offering unsafe products. Shoemake said one big concern is that theres no way to track down whos responsible should someone get tainted food from a roadside vendor. We want to be able to keep a record of whos in town making door to door sales, he said. Some council members, Just want to know whos traveling around the city selling stuff, Pierce said, explaining that in the application, temporary vendors passing through town will have to give proof of criminal record. The information compiled will be helpful during emergency situations, particularly with the many small group homes that care for older and disabled residents. We now know where they are in case of an electrical outage and can concentrate on getting them back in service sooner, Pierce said. Its not a tax and its not the license fee. Hopefully, it will help improve the look of downtown Blountstown and protect the health of our citizens. As of this week, city hall has issued 119 business licenses, according to Assistant City Manager Traci Hall. Churches also licensed but not charged. The ordinance does not apply to fundraisers and special events.BLOUNTSTOWN BUSINESS ORDINANCE CONTINUED FROM THE FRONT PAGE Chipola offers help for Health and L.T studentsMARIANNAChipola College may be able to provide assistance for certain students who enroll in Information Technology or Health related programs.

T uesday, Oct. 30 from 6-8 p.m. (ET) The race for State Attorney will be near the top of this years November ballot. Pete Williams is a Tallahassee attorney who is challenging 28 year incumbent Willie Meggs. Williams last April, stating that it was time for the voters to have a choice and a change. Williams educational background includes a BA in Economics from Yale University, a MBA from Stanford University and a law degree from the University of Florida. He has over 20 years of seras an Assistant State Attorney, where he handled thousands of violent crimes and tried over 100 jury trials. He then served as Assistant Attorney General, Director of the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, and Inspector General for both the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Department of Education. In January 2003, Pete was appointed by then Attorney General Charlie Crist to a four year term as Floridas Statewide Prosecutor. He was based in Tallahassee and supervised 40 Assistant Statewide Prosstate, with an annual budget of $6 million. charged with investigating and prosecuting organized criminal activity such as net crimes against children and public corruption, and achieved conviction rates of over 95%. Williams is running to reinvigorate the cludes resolving cases more quickly, supporting and partnering with law enforceprosecutorial resources, more active recruitment and training of young prosecutors, and increased use of new, innovative and costeffective rehabilitative sentencing programs to help offenders become productive members of society. He believes the current State Attorney has been slow to bring the State Attorneys age, and that the main ofrale and high turnover among the young prosecutors. All the good, senior prosecutors have retired and the new ones are leaving because they say it is no longer fun to work there, said Williams. Our current State Attorney has done some good things in the past, but the last four years have been marked by too many controversial cases, such as the failure to prosecute former Wakulla County Sheriff David Harvey, the botched prosecution of the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives, Ray Sansom, that will cost the taxpayers $800,000, and his sudden retirement for 30 days that was done for no other reason than to allow Mr. Meggs to collect both his regular $150,000 annual salary and another $100,000 a year in retirement pay. Williams added. We should ask our elected leaders to set better examples and act like they are accountable to the voters. I pledge fair and equal justice and am working hard to earn your vote! Williams is married with four children, three of whom attend Roberts Elementary School in northeast Tallahassee. He has been endorsed by the NRA and the PBA, the states largest law enforcement association.

Republican right-wingers along with their megaphone, Fox News, are busy as beavers creating a faux October Surprise for President Obama...Benghazi Gate. According to the right-wing cacophony, the Obama administration is covering up the facts surrounding the destruction of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya in which the U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans were killed. I dont know why the administration initially reported that the attackers were a group protesting I dont know what happened and neither do all the right-wingers who are wailing for President Obamas head on a stake. This is politics at its worst. What I do know from three decades in the military is that the are usually wrong. If I had a serious event occur in my command, I reported the basic information to my commander with the comment details to follow. Whether the initial comments from the Obama administration were correct or not does not mat ter one whit. The fact is that the consulate was attacked and four people killed. I know very well how the government works. The State Department will do what we would do in the Department of Defense. Find out what happened, who is responsible, was there any derelic tion of duty by anyone in the chain of command, and most important, can this event be prevented in the future. Right-wingers have already decided that Obama and his administration are guilty of something, hang somebody. Terrorist attacks against America have occurred for decades, and it doesnt matter who is president, Obama or Romney, Americas enemies, which are legion, will continue to attack America. barracks in Beirut during Reagans administration. No one accused Reagan of failing to protect American interests abroad. Terror ists blew up the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi during the Clinton administration. No one accused Clinton of dereliction of duty. Ive been in the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, China. The embassy is a large grey building on a normal residential street, or it was when I was there. A six-foot high metal rod fence much like those around ings here in the U.S. surrounded staffed the reception desk. The point is that U.S. embassies and consulate buildings around the world are not fortresses. A wellarmed militant force can easily overwhelm host country guards. The right-wing manufacturing of a pseudo October Surprise was derailed by the announcement of a diplomatic bombshell that the Iranians have agreed to face-toface talks with the U.S. about the Iranian nuclear development program. I watch all the news channels, left and right, to get a sense of what is real news and what is political trash talk. With the announcement of U.S./Iranian talks, I dialed in Fox News. As expected, Fox pundits were in a whirling dervish of spin control. Since the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Fox News has spent about 90 per cent of its airtime fabricating an Obama conspiracy and cover up concerning the incident. According to Fox, the news that talks are to occur is an Obama lie designed to win the coming for eign policy debate with Governor Romney. If that spin wont sell, then it must be that the Iranian Ayatollah is afraid of a President Romney and will help Obama get re-elected because Obama is a soft touch. Romneys foreign policy is as vague as his domestic policy. Hes going to get tough with China and Iran. As best one can tell, Romney is listening to neocons from the Bush Administration, and his foreign policy is an extension of George Bushs foreign policy Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCT OBER 24, 2012 COMMENTARYCORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Late Night LaughsA RECAP OF RECENT OBSER V ATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.Benghazi Gate: Whos guilty of what?

OCT OBER 24, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorBLOUNTSTOWN A diagnosis of lung cancer has ended the campaign of a candidate in the Calhoun County Superintendent of Schools election. Julie Leonard Smith, 74, she had decided to withdraw from the race due to a serious illness. She learned she had cancer on Aug. 29. Just two weeks ago, she had vowed to stay in the race, telling The Journal, I feel like this may be the last opportunity I have to do anything like this in my lifetime...so Im going to do it and Im going to do it my way. It will be business as usual. But a recent series of radiation treatments have convinced her otherwise. as bad as I thought, she said Monday. Then I realized with the way I felt, and after talking to doctors, that it was a fools withdraw. She said it wouldnt be fair to the people of Calhoun County appreciate so much the wonderful people who worked for me (in the campaign). I wish things could be different but the man upstairs decided that it wouldnt be. It was with great regret and some relief that she announced her decision to quit the race. Whether she was pedaling along the dirt roads of Blountstown in a child-sized toy airplane in the mid-1940s, dealing with her colleagues in the Virginia House of Delegates in her mid-40s Julie Leonard Smith is used to kicking up a little dust. A Calhoun County native, she graduated from Blountstown degrees in Applied Music & Voice and History. She and her late husband, J.A. Daniel Smith, a Commander in the U.S. Navy, lived in Virginia for 30 years, where they raised their family. She served three terms in Virginia House of Delegates, representing Virginia Beach. Her husband died in 1992. In 1994, she returned to Calhoun County. In 1999, she began working as a substitute teacher meetings, including a gathering with the business community to discuss issues with Governor Rick Scott earlier this year in expresses her strong opinions. Now, as she looks ahead to an uncertain future, shes treasuring her past growing up in Calhoun County. Its been a wonderful life. Ive had my down times, but Ive had some wonderful opportunities and achievements in my life, she said, adding, I had the most wonderful childhood a person could have. Ive been very vital and active since I was a little girl running the streets of Blountstown in the 1940s, she recalls. At that time, a lot of men had gone to war. Those left at home worked. And while there may have been some half-hearted supervision, children had a lot of freedom. We roamed this little ole town every day, she said about herself and her friends, a group of kids ranging in age from around four to eight who hung out together. They were known as The Courthouse Gang, she said. We had some of the biggest times, she recalled. Most of those she grew up with are still living, she said, and are still close. Im sure its a very rare connection in society today to have that bond with so many people that you grew up with and kept in touch with, she said, emphasizing: People you are close with, not acquaintances. The Gang included her first cousin, Hayes Leonard, and John Charles Peacock. Other members of the group have moved away but one, Mary Lou Adams Gunther who lives in St. Petersburg, came to stay with her a few days last week. She recalls when there was only one only paved road and the rest of Blountstown was tied together with little dirt roads. She said she was probably around six years old when her father, Henry C. Leonard, gave her a special Christmas gift: A enough for her to cruise around in. It was silver with stars on The scene was complete when an uncle had a pilots uniform tailor made for her. She proudly suited up, started pumping the pedals and literally went to town, taking off from her home that once She admits she wasnt the most observant driver and often pedaled through the towns only red light with little thought. I paid no attention to the red light, but people paid attention to me, fortunately. Her favorite destination was Nell and Oren Clemmons Standard Oil station, located on the property now known as She said she would pull up as though her little airplane would come out and pretend to pump fuel for her. Once she often to the courthouse to meet her friends. Nowadays, shes traveling the roads almost every day to 17 days or so with radiation, she said Monday afternoon. My daughter from Virginia is coming down on Sunday. Next week well meet with the doctors and see where we go from here. While disappointed at having to give up her campaign, she is focused on good things, explaining, Ive been blessed and Im at peace...I can truthfully say that. Her future is uncertain but she is taking comfort in the past, appreciative to have grown up in a small town during a special time. A time when a little girl could roll down dirt roads in her off again to kick up a little more dust.Smith withdraws from race following cancer diagnosis Julie Leonard Smith, at right, shakes hands with Gov.

A: It usually takes about four to six weeks after you settle into your new eating habits for your body to break down currently circulating cholesterol and show changes youve made in your eating habits, how high your cholesterol was to start with, and your genetics. According to the National Cholesterol Education Programs treatment guidelines, blood cholesterol levels should be checked after six weeks. If your levels arent on target, talk with your doctor about whether to continue what youve been doing or add additional dietary steps. Check cholesterol levels in another six weeks. If you and your doctor decided to continue your original changes and your LDL (bad) cholesterol is still not where your doctor suggests it should be, try a more comprehensive approach to dietary steps that can lower blood cholesterol before beginning medication. If you are overweight, losing weight is an important part of the picture. Healthy weight loss is gradual, so it may take several months to see its full impact. Reducing saturated and trans fat can usually lower blood cholesterol about 10 to 15 percent. A reasonable target for many people is to limit the total of these two fats to below 18 to 25 grams a day, but people with hardto-budge cholesterol may need to keep below 12 to 15 grams. ber plenty of vegetables and fruit, and daily dried beans, oatmeal or barley along with nuts, soy foods, and weight loss if you are overweight. These dietary changes can reduce LDL cholesterol 13 to 30 percent. Part of your diet strategy may also include plant sterols, which are added to certain margarines. If your blood cholesterol remains high, you may need medi cation, but many people give up on dietary changes too easily. See a registered dietitian to help you create changes that will work for you if you need help. To locate an RD, ask your doctor for a referral, or check the website www.eatright.org and click on Find a Registered Dietitian. Q: Is there a nutritional advantage to choosing fresh versus canned pumpkin? A: No. Both fresh and canned pumpkin are excellent choices, as long as the canned pumpkin you choose is plain, solid pack pumpkin and not sugar-laden pumpkin pie mix. Pumpkin is loaded with carotenoids, including both betaand alpha-carotene, as well as lutein and zeaxan thin, the antioxidants linked to protecting the lens and retina of our eyes. Betaand alpha-carotene may play a role in reducing our risk of cancer, because in lab studies, these compounds seem part of processes that help control cell growth, and they are both converted to retinol (vitamin A), important for immune function and possibly for activation of carcinogen-metabolizing enzymes. AICR/WCRFs expert report and its updates link foods high in carotenoids to lower risk of mouth, larynx and lunch cancers. While pumpkin is inexpen sive and abundant at farmers markets and your grocery store, you might head toward fresh. Choose smaller cooking or sweet pumpkins. Peel and cut in cubes for stir-fries, chili and stew, and experiment with adding it to pasta dishes and enchiladas. Cut pieces will keep in the refrigerator, tightly wrapped, for about two days. You can also freeze it in uncooked chunks or as cooked pure. For those times when you want a smooth pumpkin pure to stir into soup or pasta sauce, canned versions are super-quick and nutritious. Canned pumpkin is not salted, so its about the same near-zero sodium as fresh pumpkin. Q: Type 2 diabetes runs in my family, what can I do to avoid getting it? A: People with a family history of type 2 diabetes do have greater odds of developing the disease, but research is clear that a healthy lifestyle can substantially cut risk, or at least help people live more years without diabetes. One of the most important steps for prevent ing type 2 diabetes is to reach and maintain a healthy weight. Excess body fat around your waist seems par ticularly linked with increased risk, even if you are not extremely overweight. Even modest weight loss reduces risk if you are overweight now. Type 2 diabetes stems from insulin resistance which is the bodys inability to use insulin effective ly, despite producing plenty of it. Regardless of your weight, do enough physical activity so it adds up to 30 to 60 minutes daily. Daily physical activity seems to directly reduce insulin resistance in addition to reducing or preventing weight gain. Tobacco avoidance and healthy food choices also probably help: Vegetables, fruits, whole grains and dried beans contain antioxi for at least two-and-a half cups (preferably three-andat least three to four servings of whole grains.

After an incomplete pass, the Bulldogs punted to the Tigers. On their sixth play of the drive the Tigers almost scored when they broke a big run down the sidelines. The running back was chased down from behind but not before he moved the ball inside the Liberty 30-yard line. The drive ended on the next play when Stedman Dawson knocked the ball out of the running backs hand and then recovered it for LCHS. Liberty and the Blountstown traded punts and then Liberty struck. A big run by Harold Armstrong moved the ball deep into Tiger territory and then on second and long, Dustin Watson found a wide open Michael Robinson in the end zone for a touchdown four play drive the extra point gave Liberty a 7-0 lead. Robinson also had a leaping interception later in the game to kill a Tiger drive. Liberty stopped the Tigers late in the second half and then put together a nine play 74-yard drive. The drive was kept alive after the pass interfer play, the BHS defender committed what looked to be a touchdown-saving pass interference by running into the Bulldog receiver. Hayden Swier also helped keep the drive alive for Liberty as he made a The drive ended with 25.2 seconds left in the half.

In the second half the Tigers came out looking stronger and put points on the board with a nine play 64-yard drive. The Tigers used runs and passes moving. The Tigers were able to pound the ball dan hit Roosevelt Martin for a 15-yard completion Jordan then punched the ball in from two yards out to cut Libertys lead to 14-7. Liberty looked to be back on their heels and then Alex Marlowe struck back with a 43-yard kickoff return to the BHS 37 yardline. Watson and the Bulldogs drove the ball to the Tiger goal line and then Marlowe powered in from two yards out to put Liberty ahead 20-7. The extra point was pulled left as the Tigers came close to blocking the kick. en but LCHS stopped them again on fourth down to take over possession of the ball.

Marlowe led the Bulldog rushing attack with 56 yards on 15 carries. The Tigers leading rusher was Javakiel Brigham with 96 yards on nine carries. QB Jordan ran 16 times for 78 yards and was 8-21 passing for 94 yards with two interceptions. Brigham, Tripp Taylor and Corin Peterson paced the Tiger defense with nine tackles each.

By defeating the Blountstown Tigers, the Liberty County Bulldogs gave them selves the clearest path to the playoffs in Class A, District 4. Liberty has one district game remaining on Nov.2 against Port St. Joe. If Liberty wins that game, the Bulldogs secure the top spot in the district. If Port St. Joe wins Oct. 26 against winless West Gadsden and then defeats Liberty, the worst Liberty can do is a three-way tie with the Blountstown Tigers and Port St. Joe. The Blountstown Tigers playoff picture is only a bit foggier. If the Tigers win out, BHS will secure second place with a Liberty win over Port St. Joe or a West Gadsden win over Port St. Joe. If the Tigers and Port St. Joe both win out then those two teams will be joined by will be broken with a tie-breaker game. If the Tigers lose to either Franklin (26) or West Gadsden their playoff hopes are in jeopardy if Port St. Joe wins out. Playoff picture clearer

Nowadays, people rarely think twice when they see pink ribbons, having grown accustomed to the pink ribbon and what it symbolizes. Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been celebrated each year since 1985, and many other breast cancer awareness initiatives have been devised since then. While the pink ribbon may seem like its been in use for just as long, it was actually established only about 20 years ago. Ribbons have long symbolized something important. For decades, yellow ribbons have been used to alert others to soldiers at war or hostages that hadnt yet come home. People often tie yellow ribbons around trees at home until their service men and women came home safely. During the height of HIV/AIDS activism and awareness, red ribbons were worn to symbolize support for those with the disease. Although the pink ribbon evolved because pink expresses femininity, calm, breast cancer ribbon was actu ally peach. Charlotte Haley is breast cancer ribbon in 1992. She was a breast cancer survivor and came from a family of women who also fought the disease. She created peach-colored loops at home and then distributed the ribbons at her local grocery stores. Haley encouraged people to wear the ribbons and contact legisla tors to demand more funding for breast cancer research. An attached note was distributed with the ribbons stating, The National Cancer Institute annual budget is $1.8 billion, only 5 percent goes for cancer prevention. Help us wake up our legislators and America by wearing this ribbon. The same year Evelyn Lauder, senior corporate vice president for the Estee Lauder company, and Self magazine editor Alexandra Penney teamed up to produce a pink ribbon. It was distributed at makeup counters all across the country. The company collected more than 200,000 pink ribbon petitions asking the U.S. government for increased funding for breast cancer research. Although Lauder and Haley reached people on different levels, their goals were the same: To educate the public on the lack of funds allotted to breast cancer research. Pink ribbons are now seen all over and have become the uniting force for millions of women who are facing breast cancer or supporting someone with the disease. In 1996, Nancy Nick created a blue-and-pink ribbon to symbolize male breast cancer ribbons in honor of her late father. The ribbons remind others that breast cancer can affect men as well as women. Although you can see waves of pink every October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many people don their ribbons year-round. Great strides have been made with respect to breast cancer, but with about 225,000 new cases popping up each year in the United States alone, there is still work to be done.How the pink ribbon became the symbol for breast cancer

NOTICE OF November 151 p.m.EST Open to PublicTo the editor: The letter I read on banned prayer was one of the best Ive ever read in a long time. If it doesnt wake the people up that have turned away from God, then I dont know what will. Everybody wonders what has happened to America. They have turned their backs on God. Theyre trying to take him out of everything. Next they will be telling us when we can worship God and what we say in our own churches. The churches are decreasing in atten dance every week. People, you should be praying and studying Gods word, serving him all the time, not just when you feel like going to church. America used to be known as a Christian nation. The other countries like Iran, Russia and China knew they couldnt defeat America, but now they know its not a Christian nation and they can defeat us, because we are turned away from God. People get on your knees and turn back to God. Pray for our country, pray for the leaders of America and serve him every day. May God bless Mr. John Crocker and God bless The Calhoun-Liberty Journal for printing this message. Most of all, God Bless America.

Page 28 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCT OBER 24, 2012 I learned to ride a bike when I was about six years old. I remember climbing on, being pushed and told to pedal. Other than a few run-ins with gravity and physics, I rode like a champ from that point on. Fast forward a few decades. I decided to take up the sport of triathlon and discovered two things right away: First, I dont ride like a champ anymore and second, I had no idea how expensive and complicated bicycling had become. bikes and realized that good ones cost combined. When the shock wore off, I called my friend Lee to see if he still had his old 12-speed Trek. I had borrowed it from him once in 1989 to ride the St. Marks Trail, a 32-mile trip I made to impress a girl who was into riding. (For the record, it didnt work but it did give me a new appreciation for the internal combustion engine.) me I could use it but that I would need to take it in for a tune-up. I didnt even know that was a thing. But despite my better judgment, I listened to Lee and I took it to the local bike shop. Ninety dollars later, the bike was as good as new. But I was still a guy in my mid-40s, taking up an activity that would have been challenging even in my 20s. So I asked my friend John for some advice on how to make the experience less painful. He told me that I probably ought to invest in some really good bike shorts. Now it was my turn to laugh. Yeah, like Im going to cram myself into some ridiculous looking spandex pants and go out in public, I said. Of course, that was before I sitting on a bike seat roughly the size of an ax handle. Afterwards, I was back in the bike shop happily forking over $40 for shorts with the padded seat. And right then I didnt care if I did look like sausage bursting out of its casing. It was a choice between self-respect and comfort, and comfort won out by a wide margin. With the bike tuned and my butt padded, all that was left to do was start riding. Fortunately, I live across the street from my friend and boss, Joel, whos an accomplished bike racer and he and I started going regularly. Joel (without dying), drafting behind other bikers (without crashing) and riding up steep hills (without crying.) One day, though, Joel told me that he was getting a new bike and asked if I wanted to borrow the really nice bike he had been riding. I was thrilled. His Felt was a great bike and, after riding Lees old Trek, it was like graduating from a Ford to a Porsche. The only problem was that Joels bike had clips rather than cages on the pedals. That meant I had to wear special shoes (which he also loaned me). And it meant I would have to learn to twist my feet to the sides in order to get them free. I practiced several times on the grass before taking the bike out on the streets. It was an unnatural process, but after several tries I was able to pop my right foot out pretty quickly when I came to a stop. Still, I wasnt entirely comfortable with the arrangement so I mostly tried to avoid stopping unless it was absolutely necessary. And it became absolutely necessary one Sunday morning at a busy intersection with cars in front, behind and on either side of me. I had no choice but to come to a complete stop. About 50 yards from the light, I started trying to free my foot, becoming more and more desperate as my speed decreased. Finally, with my bike wobbling and me shaking my leg like a mad man, I managed to get my right foot free just as the bike stopped. What I failed to notice, however, was that all my effort had caused the bike to lean to the left. So while I was quietly celebrating the release of one foot, the bike was actually falling to the other side. At that point, it was too late to do anything except let gravity have its way with me. I hit the ground with a thud. A guy in the car next to me asked if I was okay and I noticed a few others laughing. I got up quickly, dusted myself off and rode away with the tiny shred of dignity I had left. But even that disappeared when I realized how this whole scene must have looked to a casual observer, especially one who didnt know my feet were clipped to the pedals. I can just imagine someone on the other side of the intersection seeing the bike slowly topple to the left as my In my mind I could picture them saying Other foot, idiot! Use your OTHER FOOT! I pedaled off thinking that this seemed so much easier when I was six.

OCT OBER 24, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 29 OUTDOORSCorey Dolan of Tallahassee celebrated landing a 12.3-pound largemouth bass on Lake Talquin and released it Tuesday afternoon, trant in the Florida TrophyCatch program. TrophyCatch is an innovative program initiated Oct. 1 by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to reward anglers for being great resource stewards by legally catching and releasing trophy largemouth bass. on his last day off before starting a new job and was rewarded when he cast a rubber worm to a point of lily pads around 1:30 in the afternoon. His trophy struck ferociously and fought to escape by heading back toward the lily pads as Dolan manipulated both rod and trolling motor to land the 27-inchlong bass. Dolan checked out TrophyCatchFlorida.com from his smartphone and ultimately connected with the TrophyCatch hotline. FWC biologists Doug Engel and Joshua Gold arrived at Coes Landing an hour later to determine a short of the Hall of Fame mark (13 pounds) but qualifying for the Trophy Club. Dolan will receive $100 in gift cards from sponsors such as Bass Pro Shops, Dicks Sporting Goods and Rapala lures, plus a long-sleeve TrophyClub shirt from Bass King, and discounts from New Wave Taxidermy, FishPhoto Replicas and Sportsman On Canvas. KP Clements, the FWCs TrophyCatch coordinator, said that as the receive a special one-day entry pass to and is entered into drawings for other great prizes. with his mom while growing up in the struck hard and now hes molding his own rubber worms and hoping one day to catch the next record Florida heavier than 17.27 pounds. TrophyCatch includes three tiers to encourage reporting and live-releasing bass heavier than eight pounds that are caught in Florida waters. Bass eight to 9.9 pounds (Lunker Club) or those 10 to 12.9 pounds (Trophy Club) that are caught, documented and released can be reported online at TrophyCatchFlorida.com any time of the year. All that is required to qualify for the many scale with the weight visible and one on a tape measure or ruler showing the length. Bass heavier than 13 pounds that are caught between Oct. 1 and by FWC staff to verify the weight and take genetic samples. provided to the FWC for research will be entered into the Hall of Fame club, making the angler eligible for the prizes. The World Fishing Network is partner ing with the FWC to promote and manage the trophy bass website. The biggest bass of the year entered into TrophyCatch will earn a Super Bowl-like ring, from the American Outdoors Fund, for the angler who catches it. If it is caught in Osceola County, the Kissimmee Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) will award the lucky angler $10,000. In addition, if the angler is receive $2,500 from the CVB. TrophyCatch will enable biologists by providing valuable incentives to anglers, such as Corey (Dolan), for reporting and releasing their catches of trophy bass, said Tom Champeau, director of the FWCs Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. The information will be used to evaluate and improve management strategies that produce more and larger bass. Of special interest is the fact that Lake Talquin has been the site of several largemouth-bass-stocking efforts as well as habitat improvement projects. Of the last 18 bass heavier than nine pounds caught in the lake and tested this year, seven were tagged, hatcheryIt is important for anglers to read and understand all the rules and details about rewards, which may change during the year, since they are provided by various sponsors, said Clements. However, just for registering, an angler is entered into a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat, Mercury motor and trailer. COMMITTED to serving you with integrity!

They assembled their own robots, also known as Eco-bots and control surfaces for the experiment. Then they tested the interaction between the most effective environmental clean-up solution for a simulated toxic spill. Why Robotics? From the Roomba that dances arms on the International Space Station, robots play a critical role in how we complete tasks. As part of the 2012 National Science Experiment, 4-H Eco-Bot Challenge, youth assembled their own Eco-Bots and control surfaces in order to manage an environmental clean-up. Research shows that youth who participate in 4-H are more likely to pursue careers in science, engineer ing, technology or math. Youth who participate in 4-H National Youth Science Day or other complementary programs and curricula show an increased interest in science and engineering through hands-on experiments that model robotics, programming and problem solving.

Although Halloween is now largely associated with the celebrations that take place across much of North America, where 65 percent of Americans decorate their homes and places of business in the Halloween spirit, Halloween is celebrated in various ways around the globe. ENGLAND: In the past, Brits tossed objects such as stones, vegetables and nuts a form of fortune-telling. If a pebble thrown in the morning, then it was believed that the person who tossed the pebble would not survive another year. Halloween fell out of favor after the Protestant Reformation spread through the country. However, in recent years some have begun to adopt the American tradition of trick-or-treating. HONG KONG: A Halloween-type festival in Hong Kong is known as "Yue Lan," which is the festival of the hungry ghosts. It is believed that, during this time, spirits roam the world for 24 hours. FRANCE: Halloween is considered an American holiday by most French and was relatively unknown before 1996. IRELAND: Ireland is thought to be the birthplace of Halloween, and many of the same traditions of old are still practiced today. In addition to costumes and treats, individuals may play an apple-bobbing game called "snap-apple," where participants have to try to take a bite of an apple suspended on a string. Children also play tricks on neighbors, including "knock-adolly," which is essentially a variation on "ring-and-run." SPANISHSPEAKING NA T I ONS: Many Spanish-speaking nations celebrate "El Dia de los Muertos." It is supposed to be a joyous event where people remember friends and family members who have died. Candles and incense are burned to help the AUST RIA: Some people will leave bread, water and a lighted lamp on the table on Halloween night before going to bed. It was once believed that such items would welcome the dead souls back to Earth on a night Austrians considered to be full of strong cosmic energies. CZECHOSLOV AKIA: Czechs place There are enough chairs for each living and dead family member. IT AL Y : Halloween traditions have just recently begun to blossom in Italy, where decorations and pumpkins are popular. While many of the traditions borrow from the Americans, there is at least one uniquely Italian tradition taking place in the hill town of Corinaldo. La Notte delle Streghe, "The Night of the Witches," occurs in this town with music, dancing and a witch-themed fashion show that names Miss Strega (Miss Witch). AUS TRA LIA: Halloween isn't as popular in Australia as it is in the United States and Canada. Australians may celebrate Halloween as Guy Fawkes Eve or Mischief Night. Children create mischief or get treats. Many Australians simply celebrate the holiday with a dance at their schools. Vote for and Re-ElectPlease Vote Logan E.

Page 32 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCT OBER 24, 2012 Autumn is the season when pumpkins are ripe for the and roadside vendors to select perfect pumpkins. Many pumpkins are turned into decorative jack-o-lanterns for Halloween, only to be tossed in the trash come November 1. That could be because many people are unaware of the various ways they can put pumpkins to good use. Pumpkins are gourds and members of the squash family and have been grown and used for thousands of years. Evidence suggests that pumpkins date back to 7000 B.C., possibly originating in Mexico. Today they are widely used for decorating around Halloween, but there are many other things that can be done with pumpkins. CREATE A FOOD VESSEL. Pumpkins can be transformed into bowls to hold soup, punch, fruit, or even dips. Make sure the pumpkin has been cleaned that is inside. Rub the inside walls of the pumpkin with with your food of choice. MAKE PUMPKIN PUREE. Puree from a pumpkin can be used in all types of recipes, from soups to baked goods. The puree also can replace the oil in cake recipes. Cut the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds and stringy membranes. Then place it cut-side-down in a pan with a little water in the bottom. Bake at 350 F for easily removable. Blend the resulting puree in a food are sweeter or better to use as part of recipes. Check the variety youre purchasing. WHIP UP A F ACIAL. Use some pumpkin puree with a little brown sugar and a dash of milk to create a vitamin-rich facial mask. GET ILLUMINATED. Turn hollowed-out mini pumpkins into candles. Melt soy wax, beeswax or the gel type of candle wax that can be found at most craft stores. Add your favorite scent and place a wick into the bottom of the pumpkin. Then pour the wax into hallowed-out space and allow it to harden. Try the same thing with bumpy and multi-colored gourds for added decorating appeal. TURN THE PUMPKIN INT O A FLOWER POT Fill a hollow pumpkin with soil. You may not have to worry about scraping the pumpkin completely clean because the pulp can be used to help fertilize the potting of rotting, simply put the whole thing into a traditional MAKE PUMPKIN ST OCK. While vegetable or meat-based stocks may be the standards, pumpkin can be used to make stock as well. Clean out the seeds from the stringy guts of the pumpkin and put the guts into a at least 30 minutes. The stock is ready when it begins to change color. Strain and reserve the stock for use in a variety of recipes. ADD T O COMPOST BINS. Pumpkins are rich in zinc, vitamin A and vitamin C, among other nutrients. You can add the discarded pumpkins to your backyard compost bins to further replenish the soil. TURN INT O A BILLOWING CAULDRON. Instead of a standard jack-o-lantern, put a glass jar into the carved pumpkin, add dish soap and hot water to the jar and then put in a piece of dry ice. Bubbles and smoke will pour out of the pumpkin to create a spooktacular effect.
