We remind our readers that all are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Goat Day attendance said to be highest in six yearsby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorRotary Club President Phillip Hill estimated that the 26th Annual Goat Day, held Oct. 20 at Sam Atkins Park in Blountstown, drew the largest crowd in the past six years with an estimated 5,000 visitors. That many visitors created a serious parking problem. We had parking up the old fairgrounds, he said. The Sam Atkins Park. We worked though it, he said. Were already working on the logistics to make room for another 500 or 1,000 cars next year, he said. We had right at 100 vendors this year, our sponsorship money was the best its ever been and the weather was just really nice, he said. We just couldnt have asked for a prettier day to have our event. Rotary Club Vice-President Vicki Montford said this years festival had a few extra things, including goat milk and goat cheese for sale. Even if we didnt make one penny off this event, its so worth it to bring it to the community, she said. We gave away $400 in the coin dig, where kids went out there to hunt dimes, nickels and quarters, she said. Prizes were award to winners in the chicken chase and greased pig chase. The Blountstown Rotary Club used the money raised at Goat Day for several projects, mostly notably to fund at least two scholarships one for a Blountstown High School student and one for an Altha High School student. This year we probably funded $8,000 in scholarships, Hill said, explaining that they do not have a set amount per award. He said Rotary also uses the money to pay the $30 GED test fee for many students.

Middleton was wanted on an outstanding warrant for violation of conditional release on a previous charge of attempting to manufacture methamphetamine. A tip sent Sgt. Jared Nichols to a camper in the woods off SR 73, where Middleton was said to be staying. After walking though the woods, Nichols saw the camper with its door open and spotted Middleton as Arthur Goodwin. When Deputy Bobby Sims joined him at the scene, the two went in. Goodwin saw them and pulled the door shut as they ordered him not to move. The men entered the camper and found Middleton sitting on the couch and Goodwin standing in the kitchen. During a search of the camper, chemicals and supplies used in making methamphetamine were found. Several items were in plain view on a table in front of Middleton, including burnt tinfoil, rolling papers and synthetic marijuana. A duffle bag at her feet held clothing as well as Ziplock bags filled with meth-making ingredients including bottle with suspected acid and an open cold compress pack containing ammonium nitrate. Other items found included several pair of nail clippers, which the arrest report noted was typically used by meth cooks to peel open lithium batteries to remove the lithium strips, and a set of kitchen scales along with several small containers that held a white residue methamphetamine. A hollowed-out ink pen and folded tinfoil items used to inhale methamphetamine were found in Middletons purse. Middleton said all of the items were hers and Goodwin had just arrived and had nothing to do with the chemicals. While deputies were leaving the scene, several family members of the property owners arrived and stated that Middleton did not have permission to be there. Middleton later gave a statement that the chemicals were hers alone and had been used to make meth. She stated she had made some the previous weekend and had last used meth that morning prior to her arrest. She said she had been moving from place to place and did not want to leave the chemicals behind at the last place she had cooked the drug. ARREST REPORTS compiled by Journal Editor Teresa Eubanks APRIL MIDDLETON W oman caught with methmaking supplies in camperTuesday morning blackout in Bristolby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorAn overheight truck is thought to have been the cause of an early morning blackout in Bristol, according to Florida Public Utilities Electrical Operations Supervisor Jerry Lewis. The City of Bristol lost power around 5 a.m. Oct. 30 leaving the streets dark and Lewis said he couldnt be sure exactly what had happened, but it appeared that a truck may have got into the lines along Hwy. 12 S., just north of Veterans Memorial Civic Center. We do know the wires went together and burnt down...one of the wires twisted like a peppermint stick, he said. It looked like a truck may have snagged the lines, snapped them together and caused them to burn. He called a FPU crew member from Marianna to help make the repairs since local lineman Alvin Foran had just left a day earlier to travel to Philadelphia, PA to assist with power problems there in the midst of Superstorm Sandy. Power was partially restored by 6:30 a.m.; by 7 a.m., power was back on.A Calhoun County man is being held without bond following his arrest on one count of possession of child pornography after an investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) Tallahassee Regional Operations Center Cyber and High-Tech Crime Squad. Christopher Lee Roeters, 39, of Clarksville, was taken into custody Oct. 17. Roeters is a registered sex offender from Michigan who was on probation for failing to register as a sex offender in Florida, according to an FDLE news release. Information received in September from a Cyber Tip Line operated by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children led agents to a photo that Roeters later admitted he had uploaded into a personal online photo album maintained on Google servers. The image showed two young nude males, between the ages of 11 and 15, in an intimate pose. Agents located Roeters after getting a subpoena from Fairpoint Communications to identify the owner of the IP address, which led them to his Segers Road residence.Sex offender charged with possessing child pornography

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCT OBER 31, 2012 COMMENTARYCORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Late Night LaughsA RECAP OF RECENT OBSER V ATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.The hurricane has interrupted the presidential campaign. Both presidential candidates are taking measures to prepare for Hurricane Sandy. President Obama is staying in Washington to coordinate relief efforts. And Mitt Romney is moving his smaller homes into his larger home. CONAN OBRIENAre you excited about Halloween? People go out pretending to be something theyre not, looking for handouts. Its like running for president. DA VID LETTERMANThe Giants swept the Tigers four straight to win the World Series. The last time a Tiger took a beating this bad, he had a nine-iron through the back window of his Escalade. JAY LENOPresident Obama now has a 52-point lead with Hispanics. However, Mitt Romney has a 90-point lead with the people who hire Hispanics. CONAN OBRIENI dont want to say that was a tough World Series, but today Detroit asked for another bailout. JAY LENOA man in Indiana got a tattoo of Mitt Romneys campaign logo on his face. They describe the man as a staunch Republican who has never heard of bumper stickers. CONAN OBRIENHere is something scary. Yesterday they found 42 dead bats. You know where? The Detroit Tigers dugout. JAY LENOIt was so windy yesterday that a Jets receiver was actually blown into the end zone. DA VID LETTERMANPresident Obama is now getting some criticism for calling Mitt Romney a B.S.er. I dont think that means big spender. JAY LENOWeather forecasters are now referring to Hurricane Sandy as Frankenstorm because it will fall on Halloween. Unfortunately, they dont have any more info on the storm because they spent the last four days coming up with that cool name. JIMMY F ALLONIts now reported that Arnold Schwarzenegger is going to star in another Conan movie. In this one, Conan has a son with the woman who cleans his castle. JAY LENO took a major hit because of preparation for Sandy. And also because no one knows what a Cloud Atlas is. JIMMY F ALLON the upscale condominium in New York City known him. Finally a job loss Obama can be happy about. JAY LENOThis storm could mean the biggest power outage since the Yankees in the playoffs. DA VID LETTERMANThey keep saying the candidates are out making stump speeches. You know why its called a stump speech? Because after a candidate is done with his speech, youre completely stumped as to what he said. JAY LENOPresident Obama said that Americans should take warnings about Hurricane Sandy seriously. So step one: Give it a name other than Sandy. I mean, come on. JIMMY F ALLON The prospect of Mitt Romney becoming the President of the United States reminds me of a song by the great southern rock band Creedence Clearwater RevivalBad Moon Rising. Not a good sign. Ive been critical of Romney in these columns not because of a personal dislike. How could I dislike Romney on a personal basis? I cant because I dont know him on a personal basis. My opinion is that Romney is a stuffed shirt, rich, but still a stuffed shirt. However, that doesnt disqualify him from becoming president. This is America. A person can be as much of a stuffed shirt as they want to beno law against questionable personality traits. My problem with Romney is that he is without principles. This man has said and will say anything to gain a vote. Romney has been on all four sides plus top and bottom of every issue. If Romney had any core values, any core beliefs, any bottom lines then he would present the public with his domestic plan. He would state with numbers, addition and subtraction, his tax plan. He would provide some detail on what programs he would cut or eliminate to reduce federal cost. He would provide details of his lowering of tax rates. Then we could make some comparisons of his and President Obamas economic plans. On economics, Romneys pitch is that the U.S. economy is in the hopper, and its all Obamas fault. The recovery from the 2008 economic disaster is on track. The GDP is at 2% growth, which is normal for this point in a recession recovery. Romneys promise to grow the economy at 4 or 5 percent is economic ignorance at work. But, gullible voters believe him. The only solution to recovery from economic recession is a government stimulus followed by consumer spending. Politicians can blather on, but the only thing that creates demand and boosts the economy is consumer spending. It doesnt matter who is president, the one trillion anbackbone reduces cost and increases taxes. The numbers are the numbers. Three recent incidents indicate Romneys lack of understanding of economic conditions. First, he was at a steel wire company blasting Obama about getting tough on China. Apparently, Romney didnt know that the steel wire company had appealed to the Obama administration about China dumping steel wire in the U.S. The Obama administration stopped the Chinese from doing so. Second, Romney was at a construction company blasting Obama about stimulus spending. The construction company that Romney was using as a backdrop received $700,000 in stimulus money. Another case of Romney with head up and locked. Third and the most telling of Romneys predilection to say or do anything for a vote was at a rally where he said the Jeep company was going to move all of its U.S. operation to China. This was an outright lie that Romney got from the right-wing blogosphere. The Chrysler Corporation stated that it was not true and their plan was to sell more Jeep vehicles in China. Jeep vehicles are already being made in China. When I was in Beijing, the most prominent U.S. vehicle on the streets was a Jeep Cherokee SUV. The problem with Romneys Jeep statement is that here is a man who wants to be president of the United States, and he is repeating trash talk from the Internet. Does this man not know that 99% of stuff on the Internet is questionable as to its validity? I read it on the Inter net is a new low for a presidential candidate. Even more scary than Romneys economic naivet is his and Paul Ryans views on social issues, particularly a womans reproductive healthcare. Ryan along with his fellow misogynist senator wannabee Akin from Missouri authored, and the House passed a federal law that would prevent abortion under any circumstance. There are 15 senate candidates who share that view. The most prominent of these religious zealots is Richard Mourdock, senate candidate from Indiana. This moron says its Gods will if a woman is raped and impregnated. We criticize Koran inspired religious zealotry, but these right-wingers are just as bad when they attempt to impose their distorted and cruel religious views on American women. American Taliban comes to mind. Does President Obama have all the answers? Nope. But he has a plan to keep the Bush tax cuts for the middle class and increase taxes on rich people making more than $250,000 a year. Obama agreed to a 10 to 1 spending cut to tax increase, but Republicans trashed that plan because they have signed pledges to Grover Norquist, a lobbyist, never to increase taxes. To Republicans, their loyalty to Norquist is more important than the wellbeing of America. So much for raising the right hand and swearing to protect and defend the Constitution. Unprincipled!Bad Moon Rising?Neither Romney economy. The only solution to recovery from economic recession is a government stimulus followed by consumer spending.

NOVEMBER 7, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Keep your eye on OhioWASHINGTON The most fortuitous decision President Obama made, the one most likely to win him a second term, is the decision to put government money into bailing out the automobile industry. It looks like a no-brainer today, but when he announced the bailout in 2009, it was hotly contested even among Democrats. No one had anything nice to say about the car companies, which had long ago lost their competitive edge by failing to adapt to 21st century energy needs. separate private planes to testify before Congress. They took a verbal lashing from irate lawmakers and the next time they traveled to Washington asking for taxpayer money, they left the jets at home and came by car. It was a small concession and did nothing to assuage the anger at bailing them out. On the campaign trail, Obama says that he bet on American workers and that his bet is paying off in a big way. If he wins reelection, it will be because he carried Ohio and if he carries Ohio, it will be because the auto bailout revived the states economy and Ohio voters know that. The states improved economy is a direct result of a newly robust auto industry rooted mainly in the northern part of Ohio. The economy of southern Ohio, where Governor Romney does better, is reliant on coal, an industry that feels threatened by Obama and his green energy policies. The division in Ohio, old fossil fuel energy versus a new car industry put on a path toward greater fuel savings, symbolizes much of the struggle over politics that divides the country. Obama, with his coali tion of minorities, young people and single women, looks more like the countrys future than Romney with his coalition of mainly white men and married women who dont look at government as a partner. If Obama can hold onto what appears to be a small but durable lead in Ohio, he effectively checkmates Romney from achieving the 270 electoral votes needed to win. Real Clear Politics, a web site that aggregates all the public polls to make its predictions, has assigned all the toss-up states to either Obama or Romney, depending which one is ahead in the polls. They assume that Romney takes Colorado, Virginia and Florida and Obama takes Ohio, Iowa and New Hampshire. That would give Obama 281 electoral votes compared to Romneys 257. The numbers could change of course over the next 10 days, but its clear from the candidates travel schedules and where theyre putting their money, that the number of battleground states is narrowing. There are really only a half-dozen: Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia and Florida. The Republicans pretend Wisconsin is in play because its the home state of their vice-presidential pick, Paul Ryan, but its likely to fall into the Obama column. Likewise, the Republicans say that Michigan and Pennsylvania are possible Romney states, but thats a stretch. It could be a long election night, but keep your eye on Ohio, the state that so far is eluding Romney. Obama went a long way to securing Ohio with his early decision to buck the naysayers and support an iconic American industry, however unpopular it was at the time. Romney is now scrambling to say he was for a managed bankruptcy all along, just like Obama, but like the president says, Romney is airbrushing history. Romney called for private money, but the credit markets were frozen, his plan was implausible and General Motors would have gone into Chapter Seven Liquidation, taking a million jobs with it. Obama unconditionally saved the auto industry. End of story.

Last Wednesday, a team including FWC staff, a local veterinar ian and a wildlife trapper located the monkey at Country Club Way South and Fairway Avenue South in St. Petersburg and used a tranquilizer dart to temporarily immobilize it for transport. Its important to remove exotic, invasive wildlife and other wildlife that poses a threat to people and the natural environment, said Maj. Dennis Post, regional commander for the FWCs Southwest Region. There has already been one documented bite from this monkey. Rhesus macaques are powerful monkeys capable of seriously injuring an adult human. They also can carry the simian herpesB virus, which can be transmitted to humans. Untreated scratches, bites or cuts from an infected animal could prove fatal. The FWC says its also in the best interest of the monkey to be captured and removed. The urban environment of Tampa Bay is not the monkeys natural habitat and posed a threat to its health, Post said. Rhesus macaques have a highly evolved society where the health and well-being of each individual is largely dependent on the cooperation of other troop members, especially for defense purposes. The monkey will undergo veterinary evaluations and ultimately be placed in an appropriate facility where it can live safely among others of its kind. At its September meeting, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) made several cal ornamental species, which are often collected and displayed in aquariums. These changes include a three-year prohibition on the recreational and commercial harvest of the giant Caribbean sea anemone. The giant anemone, also known as condy or the pink-tipped anemone, is a popular species in the aquarium trade, but commercial harvesters in the marine life industry have come to the FWC with concerns about declining population numbers, especially after the 2010 cold snap. FWC commercial harvest data also suggests there has been a sharp decline in the population. The three-year closure will allow the species time to rebuild its population. Staff will monitor the population and return to the Commission within three years with a proposal for future management of this species. what is considered marine life, which will allow these as hook and line and cast net, and without the requirement that they be kept in an aerated livewell.

NOTICE OF November 15, 20121 p.m.EST Open to PublicAmong the many char acters who shaped my early life was my fathers younger brother and polar opposite, Billy McClellan. In his life, Uncle Billy had many occupations, ranging from submarine sailor to school teacher to game warden. He was licensed and drive semi-trucks. Before he passed away in 1999, he had raced boats and cars, and crossed both the equator and the Arctic Circle. He was good at anything mechanical, but there was one than merely gifted and in fact approached savant-levels of genius. Uncle Billy may have been the best outboard motor mechanic who ever turned a wrench. He had an intuitive understanding of motors and machines, and watching him open a hood or remove a cowling was like seeing Chet Atkins pick up a guitar. It was second nature, as was his inclination to help anyone who needed it. generous nature on a number of occasions, including once while I was off at basic training. I left my old, raggedy Ford truck parked at my parents house for about four months. It wasnt in good shape to begin with and, after sitting idle for so long, I wondered if it would even crank. But when I got home, my father told me that Uncle Billy had used my truck a couple of times while news because it was beyond his ability to notice a problem came back to a truck that was running far better than it ever had. However, Uncle Billy per formed his most memorable mechanical miracle several years before then, when I was about 10 years old. And I dont know if he ever realized what an indelible impact it made on my life. It started with a 1959 3.5-horsepower Johnson outboard that had been sitting in my fathers shed for as long as I could remember. It was old, rusted, and several pieces had been removed and scattered around in various places. For some reason, however, I decided that the old motor should be mine. I spent hours fantasizing about driving it down Iamonia Lake (on my imaginary boat, apparently). All I needed was someone to help me get it running. Daddy said I could have ing that would be the end of it. However, he underestimated my determination to have it running again, and apparently forgot how much his younger brother loved a mechanical challenge. I made an impassioned plea to Uncle Billy, who readily agreed to get it running again, but only if I helped. reason why God created summer breaks. Home from his tug boat duties for a few days, Uncle Billy and I took the motor over to his house and began the meticulous process of tearing it down, piece by piece. With his a wash tub with diesel fuel, we stripped the motor down to its smallest constituent pieces. All the while, he was making careful notes about which needed to be replaced. In the process, Uncle Billy ing detail how an internal combustion engine works, the unique way an outboard oper ates and why some pieces had to be scrapped while others could be salvaged. After we had the motor disassembled, Uncle Billy had to go back to work on the tug boat. While he was gone, my job was to take each part and clean it thoroughly with diesel fuel. Tibetan monks would have envied my complete devotion to this task. Every day, I walked over to his house and diligently cleaned each piece, being especially careful not to lose a nut, bolt or screw. My other job was to approach my father about the delicate issue of ordering parts. Uncle Billy had made a list of all the things we needed and priced them in a catalog at the old Chevrolet dealer ship (which also sold Johnson outboards because this was Blountstown and thats how we rolled). He estimated it was going to cost about $30$40, and he wanted to make sure his notoriously cheap older brother was willing to pick up the tab. age to approach Daddy and ask him if it would be okay to order the parts, offering to do odd jobs around the house to work off the bill and Nah, just kidding. Thats what I should have done. What I really did was lie through my teeth. Having that motor was way too important to me to take a chance on Daddy saythat Daddy had approved the purchase, and he went ahead and ordered the parts. I was counting on having the motor repaired and running begic miscalculations like that have been a hallmark of my life and career.) It didnt pan out that way because Daddy came home at lunch one day what I did was wrong, for gave me and left me with a big hug. Nah, just kidding. He hit the roof and threatened to take $40 worth of value off my backside if I ever pulled something like that again. But, he also said he couldnt send the parts back and had to go ahead and pay for them, job. (This was an early lesson in asking forgiveness before permission that has actually served me quite well over the years.) Waiting for Uncle Billy to get back off the tug boat was like waiting for Christmas to come. Every day, I scrubbed parts. Then I would wipe them down and scrub them some more. My biggest fear during this time was that it wasnt going to be good enough and thus delay drive my own motor. After what seemed like a months of waiting, Uncle two-week stint and called me over to reassemble the motor. I remember laying newspaspreading the parts out all across the living room. Aunt Ann had no doubt surrendered her living room to this sort of thing before because she was a lot more tolerant than any other woman Ive known before around us, unfazed by the fact we had turned her home into a makeshift garage. Piece by piece and part by part, we gradually put it all back together. Once again, each component did and why it was necessary. To me it was to a man who had repaired, overhauled and raced some of the largest outboards in production, Im pretty sure it was tire. parts together, it was getting close to 9 p.m. and my brother Bill showed up to bring me home. I distinctly remember two things about what hapFirst, Bill made the comment that the old motor would never crank. He said there was no way it could sit up that long and be resurrected with a few new parts and some TLC. is Uncle Billy smiling as he put the motor in a barrel and yanked the cord. nothing. But on the third pull, that old motor came to life, purr ing and putting like new. The sight of that motor runand my mind with possibilities. I could tell my buddies honestly that I now had my own outboard motor. (A big deal for a kid back then.) It was a step toward manhood. It was independence. It was redemption. But mostly, it was mine. Of course, I thanked Uncle Billy profusely and I know he was proud of once again seeing a broken, neglected engine return to service. Uncle Billy passed away in 1999 and I tried to make it over to see him one last time, but he died while I was en route. And though Im usually at a loss for words in situations I wanted to say to him before he left us. I didnt get a chance Thanks for taking the time to bring a young boys dream to life before his eyes and for teaching him whats possible with a skilled hand, a sharp mind and a patient heart.Remembering Uncle Billy & the old outboard JIM McCLELLANSOUTDOORS Down South Uncle Billy had an intuitive understanding of motors and machines, and watching him open a hood or remove a cowling was like seeing Chet Atkins pick up a guitar.RE-ELECT Margie LaramoreSUPERVISOROF ELECTIONSPolitical advertisement paid for & approved by Margie Laramore, NPA, for Supervisor of Elections

Page 18 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCT OBER 31, 2012 I would greatly appreciate your vote on November 6.To the editor: How many of you have heard about the zero tolerance policy for bullying that has been placed within our school systems? I personally, have heard this statement many times, but I have to ask, just how often is this rule actually enforced? Which leads me to this. If your child is being bullied and you, or your child are not in some sort of clique, or have certain last names, then its either swept under a rug and ignored or turned around to look as though it is your child who is doing the bullying. Well, not everyone is fortunate enough to have been born with a silver spoon in their mouth, or to be welcomed in to the right group of people. That doesnt mean, however, that the lower class students are always the ones that start trouble. What ever happened to defending yourself if someone is bothering you and continues to oppress you after you have repeatedly asked them to leave you alone? If a student is defending ones self because they have repeatedly asked someone to leave them alone, then you would think that a teacher or administrator would stop the other person. Not just punish one but punish both. Not only am I talking about bullying between two students, but bullying between students and staff. I have had several incidences where my child has been bullied by teachers as well as people within the administration. How do we stop this? I know my children are not saints and would never presume to say that they are; I accept the fact that they are not, but neither is anyone else and no person, group, click or the like, have the right to bully my children, or anyone elses. When you cant go to the administration or to the superintendent, then who do you go to? Donna Goff, BristolA plea for help: Stop the bullying!To the editor: I especially want to thank the constituents of Calhoun County Commission District Three for their support and the opportunity to serve them and the county as a whole for the last four years. During that time, I have tried to carry out the duties of the Commission in a business-like manner, deciding for the effective and wise use of our countys money your money. Commission was faced with the cost of one new polling site and rehab of others. This would have cost thousands of dollars. The Commission voted to move the sites. Let me emphasize this was a responsibility of the Commission, not the Supervisor of Elections the decision and it did. God bless all of you and God bless the United States. Don Miller, Calhoun Commissioner, District Three SPEAK UP!Write: The Journal, P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321 or email us at: thejournal@fairpoint.net with a letter to the editorCommission voted to move polling sitesTo the editor: The upcoming election will be the most important election of our lifetime. The elected President will be able to place one or more judges on the Supreme Court. These judges terms are for their lifetime. The decisions handed down by them will affect our chil dren and their children even to the fourth genera tion. These judges usually votes their decision as the President who appoints them. I speak not as a Democrat or Republican, I speak as a man of God. Today, in many schools, the word of God has been stricken, or the phrase God Bless America forbidden. We fought, gave our blood and even our homes, we are forbidden to display. The Devil with a capital D, can go into our schools and sponsor a dance, but a preacher cant go in and hold a church service. In Jeremiah 1:5 God said: Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee: and before thow came forth out of the womb I sancnations. Therefore God knew us before we were formed, for we are formed in the mind of God and are humans at the moment of conception. Therefore, the morning after pill is the killing of an unborn human being. Our present government says it is a womans right to choose, even at taxpayers expense. But God says its murder. God spoke to me and said: America is down to its knees and this is our last chance. I will not attempt to tell you how to vote, but I will ask you two questions: determine.

New of the tiny communitys big carnival has spread far and wide. Daniels said he was in Nashville a few weeks ago, standing in the Bass Pro Shop and wearing his Kinard Fire Department shirt when a stranger walked past him.

This fruit of the fall is often used in decorating the interior and exterior of homes, but can be an integral component of cooking and baking as well. Little thought is given to pumpkins and their makeup. But pumpkin about these delicious gourds can dig into the following facts. Pumpkins are a member of the squash family that grow on long vines close to the ground. Before pumpkin will form and then turn into pumpkins. Pumpkins adapt to many climates and are grown on all of the continents except Antarctica. In colonial times, settlers and natives alike relied on pumpkin as a staple of their diets. The British saw the possibilities of pumpkins as a food source and brought seeds back to Europe to enjoy as well. Pumpkins are comprised of several parts. The pumpkin is covered in a skin that surrounds the pulp, or the meaty part of the pumpkin. The stem is at the top of the pumpkin and connects to the vine. Tendrils are thin pieces of vine that tether the pumpkin to the ground to protect it from the wind and weather. The inside of the pumpkin is known as the cavity and can contain seeds pumpkin is known as the blossom end before the pumpkin formed. Most varieties of pumpkins are edible, but some taste better than others. Once pumpkins turn orange they can be eaten. People bake the meat into pies, soups and stews. It can also be used in breads and cakes. Pumpkin puree can replace the oil in cake recipes much in the same way applesauce can. Adding pumpkin to recipes provides a healthy way to increase nutritional value. There are many interesting pieces of trivia regarding pumpkins. Here are some things to ponder. Pumpkins were once believed to eliminate freckles and were also used as a remedy for snake bites. In 2007, people in Boston earned the world record for the most lit pumpkins with 30,128 twinkling jacko-lanterns. Thousands of people participate in pumpkin chucking, an event where air cannons propel pumpkins thousands of feet. Each year people compete to see who can launch a pumpkin the farthest. On September 25, 2010, people in New Bremen, Ohio, broke their own record when they baked a 3,699 pound pumpkin, surpassing their prior record of 2,020 pounds.

Blountstown ElementaryParaprofessionals play an important part in Blountstown High School reaching The GoldBlountstown High School paraprofessionals play a major part in the functioning of the school. A paraprofessional is someone who assists students. Paraprofessionals keep students on task as well as enforce the rules of the teacher and school. They assist some students with individual needs. The staff of paraprofessionals at BHS includes Mrs. Lisa Hobby, Mrs. Shannon Charles Buggs. Mrs. Hobby graduated from Valiant, OK. Her favorite part of her job is helping students accomplish things they normally wouldnt be able to. She enjoys getting to know her students. Mrs. Hobby wants students to know that her job as a paraprofessional is different than some paraprofessionals; shes been lucky to be with the same student since Pre-K and she feels like hes family. Mrs. Hobby is married with two grown kids and a grandson. BHS this past year, she makes a great impact on the new campus. She graduated from Sneads High School. She believes that performing her job effectively allows students to learn in an uninterrupted ish her college degree to become a teacher and may continue to further her education after her children are grown. She has been married daughter. Mr. Reed graduated from Blountstown High School. Mr. Reed wants people to know that to be a paraprofessional you must have an afnancially, but your reward from God is knowing that you have done your best to help someone. He wants Gospel full time. Miss Johnny Mae decision to be a paraprofessional. He sons and two grandsons. Coach Charles Buggs believes that his job is just as important as anyone in the school because the staff of BHS work at the school for the same reason, helping the kids to become better people in life and accomplishing the ultimate goal of graduating high school. Coach Buggs graduated from Blountstown include playing softball, hanging out with his family and friends and weightlifting. Coach Buggs wants to complete his degree in Sports Management and land a teaching job. Ultimately his goal is to be the head coach of his own football team. He is inspired by his family and says that without them there wouldnt be any reason to do what he does. From what I have gathered from interviewing these paraprofessionals, I believe it is a rewarding career if you enjoy helping others or just love kids. All in all, I believe that paraprofessionals are an important asset to this school. I encourage anyone who is interested to learn more about how much paraprofessionals contribute to this school. blountstown high school The Calhoun Liberty JOURNALServing two counties that make up one great community!

Goat Day attendance said to be highest in six yearsby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorRotary Club President Phillip Hill estimated that the 26th Annual Goat Day, held Oct. 20 at Sam Atkins Park in Blountstown, drew the largest crowd in the past six years with an estimated 5,000 visitors. That many visitors created a serious parking problem. We had parking up the old fairgrounds, he said. The Sam Atkins Park. We worked though it, he said. Were already working on the logistics to make room for another 500 or 1,000 cars next year, he said. We had right at 100 vendors this year, our sponsorship money was the best its ever been and the weather was just really nice, he said. We just couldnt have asked for a prettier day to have our event. Rotary Club Vice-President Vicki Montford said this years festival had a few extra things, including goat milk and goat cheese for sale. Even if we didnt make one penny off this event, its so worth it to bring it to the community, she said. We gave away $400 in the coin dig, where kids went out there to hunt dimes, nickels and quarters, she said. Prizes were award to winners in the chicken chase and greased pig chase. The Blountstown Rotary Club used the money raised at Goat Day for several projects, mostly notably to fund at least two scholarships one for a Blountstown High School student and one for an Altha High School student. This year we probably funded $8,000 in scholarships, Hill said, explaining that they do not have a set amount per award. He said Rotary also uses the money to pay the $30 GED test fee for many students. Learn more about the Blountstown Rotary Club by visiting their website at www.blountstownrotary.com.A Clarksville woman is being held on $100,000 bond following her arrest for attempting to manufacture methamphetamine, according to a report from the Calhoun County Arrested Oct. 25 was April Marie Middleton, 31. Middleton was wanted on an outstanding warrant for violation of conditional release on a previous charge of attempting to manufacture methamphetamine. A tip sent Sgt. Jared Nichols to a camper in the woods off SR 73, where Middleton was said to be staying. After walking though the woods, Nichols saw the camper with its door open and spotted Middleton as Arthur Goodwin. When Deputy Bobby Sims joined him at the scene, the two went in. Goodwin saw them and pulled the door shut as they ordered him not to move. The men entered the camper and found Middleton sitting on the couch and Goodwin standing in the kitchen. During a search of the camper, chemicals and supplies used in making methamphetamine were found. Several items were in plain view on a table in front of Middleton, including burnt tinfoil, rolling papers and synthetic marijuana. A duffle bag at her feet held clothing as well as Ziplock bags filled with meth-making ingredients including bottle with suspected acid and an open cold compress pack containing ammonium nitrate. Other items found included several pair of nail clippers, which the arrest report noted was typically used by meth cooks to peel open lithium batteries to remove the lithium strips, and a set of kitchen scales along with several small containers that held a white residue methamphetamine. A hollowed-out ink pen and folded tinfoil items used to inhale methamphetamine were found in Middletons purse. Middleton said all of the items were hers and Goodwin had just arrived and had nothing to do with the chemicals. While deputies were leaving the scene, several family members of the property owners arrived and stated that Middleton did not have permission to be there. Middleton later gave a statement that the chemicals were hers alone and had been used to make meth. She stated she had made some the previous weekend and had last used meth that morning prior to her arrest. She said she had been moving from place to place and did not want to leave the chemicals behind at the last place she had cooked the drug. ARREST REPORTS compiled by Journal Editor Teresa Eubanks AprilPRIL MiIDDletonLETON WW oman caught with methmaking supplies in camperTuesday morning blackout in Bristolby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorAn overheight truck is thought to have been the cause of an early morning blackout in Bristol, according to Florida Public Utilities Electrical Operations Supervisor Jerry Lewis. The City of Bristol lost power around 5 a.m. Oct. 30 leaving the streets dark and Lewis said he couldnt be sure exactly what had happened, but it appeared that a truck may have got into the lines along Hwy. 12 S., just north of Veterans Memorial Civic Center. We do know the wires went together and burnt down...one of the wires twisted like a peppermint stick, he said. It looked like a truck may have snagged the lines, snapped them together and caused them to burn. He called a FPU crew member from Marianna to help make the repairs since local lineman Alvin Foran had just left a day earlier to travel to Philadelphia, PA to assist with power problems there in the midst of Superstorm Sandy. Power was partially restored by 6:30 a.m.; by 7 a.m., power was back on.A Calhoun County man is being held without bond following his arrest on one count of possession of child pornography after an investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) Tallahassee Regional Operations Center Cyber and High-Tech Crime Squad. Christopher Lee Roeters, 39, of Clarksville, was taken into custody Oct. 17. Roeters is a registered sex offender from Michigan who was on probation for failing to register as a sex offender in Florida, according to an FDLE news release. Information received in September from a Cyber Tip Line operated by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children led agents to a photo that Roeters later admitted he had uploaded into a personal online photo album maintained on Google servers. The image showed two young nude males, between the ages of 11 and 15, in an intimate pose. Agents located Roeters after getting a subpoena from Fairpoint Communications to identify the owner of the IP address, which led them to his Segers Road residence.Sex offender charged with possessing child pornographyR

Its like running for president. DAV VID LETTERMANThe G Giants swept the Tigers four straight to win the World S Series. The last time a Tiger took a beating this bad, he had a nine-iron through the back window of his Escalade. JAY LENOPPresident Obama now has a 52-point lead with Hispanics. However, Mitt Romney has a 90-point lead with the people who hire Hispanics. ConanONAN OBrienRIENI dont want to say that was a tough World S Series, but today Detroit asked for another bailout. JAY LENOA man in Indiana got a tattoo of Mitt Romneys campaign logo on his face. They describe the man as a staunch Republican who has never heard of bumper stickers. ConanONAN OBrienRIENHere is something scary. Yesterday they found 42 dead bats. You know where? The Detroit Tigers dugout. JAY LENOIt was so windy yesterday that a Jets receiver was actually blown into the end zone. DAV VID LETTERMANPPresident Obama is now getting some criticism for calling Mitt Romney a B.SS.er. I dont think that means big spender. JAY LENOWeather forecasters are now referring to Hurricane S Sandy as FFrankenstorm because it will fall on Halloween. Unfortunately, they dont have any more info on the storm because they spent the last four days coming up with that cool name. JIMMY FF ALLONIts now reported that Arnold S Schwarzenegger is going to star in another Conan movie. In this one, Conan has a son with the woman who cleans his castle. JAY LENO took a major hit because of preparation for S Sandy. And also because no one knows what a Cloud Atlas is. JIMMY FF ALLON the upscale condominium in New York City known him. F Finally a job loss Obama can be happy about. JAY LENOThis storm could mean the biggest power outage since the Yankees in the playoffs. DAV VID LETTERMANThey keep saying the candidates are out making stump speeches. You know why its called a stump speech? Because after a candidate is done with his speech, youre completely stumped as to what he said. JAY LENOPPresident Obama said that Americans should take warnings about Hurricane S Sandy seriously. S So step one: G Give it a name other than S Sandy. I mean, come on. JIMMY FF ALLON The prospect of Mitt Romney becoming the President of the United States reminds me of a song by the great southern rock band Creedence Clearwater RevivalBad Moon Rising. Not a good sign. Ive been critical of Romney in these columns not because of a personal dislike. How could I dislike Romney on a personal basis? I cant because I dont know him on a personal basis. My opinion is that Romney is a stuffed shirt, rich, but still a stuffed shirt. However, that doesnt disqualify him from becoming president. This is America. A person can be as much of a stuffed shirt as they want to beno law against questionable personality traits. My problem with Romney is that he is without principles. This man has said and will say anything to gain a vote. Romney has been on all four sides plus top and bottom of every issue. If Romney had any core values, any core beliefs, any bottom lines then he would present the public with his domestic plan. He would state with numbers, addition and subtraction, his tax plan. He would provide some detail on what programs he would cut or eliminate to reduce federal cost. He would provide details of his lowering of tax rates. Then we could make some comparisons of his and President Obamas economic plans. On economics, Romneys pitch is that the U.S. economy is in the hopper, and its all Obamas fault. The recovery from the 2008 economic disaster is on track. The GDP is at 2% growth, which is normal for this point in a recession recovery. Romneys promise to grow the economy at 4 or 5 percent is economic ignorance at work. But, gullible voters believe him. The only solution to recovery from economic recession is a government stimulus followed by consumer spending. Politicians can blather on, but the only thing that creates demand and boosts the economy is consumer spending. It doesnt matter who is president, the one trillion anbackbone reduces cost and increases taxes. The numbers are the numbers. Three recent incidents indicate Romneys lack of understanding of economic conditions. First, he was at a steel wire company blasting Obama about getting tough on China. Apparently, Romney didnt know that the steel wire company had appealed to the Obama administration about China dumping steel wire in the U.S. The Obama administration stopped the Chinese from doing so. Second, Romney was at a construction company blasting Obama about stimulus spending. The construction company that Romney was using as a backdrop received $700,000 in stimulus money. Another case of Romney with head up and locked. Third and the most telling of Romneys predilection to say or do anything for a vote was at a rally where he said the Jeep company was going to move all of its U.S. operation to China. This was an outright lie that Romney got from the right-wing blogosphere. The Chrysler Corporation stated that it was not true and their plan was to sell more Jeep vehicles in China. Jeep vehicles are already being made in China. When I was in Beijing, the most prominent U.S. vehicle on the streets was a Jeep Cherokee SUV. The problem with Romneys Jeep statement is that here is a man who wants to be president of the United States, and he is repeating trash talk from the Internet. Does this man not know that 99% of stuff on the Internet is questionable as to its validity? I read it on the Internet is a new low for a presidential candidate. Even more scary than Romneys economic naivet is his and Paul Ryans views on social issues, particularly a womans reproductive healthcare. Ryan along with his fellow misogynist senator wannabee Akin from Missouri authored, and the House passed a federal law that would prevent abortion under any circumstance. There are 15 senate candidates who share that view. The most prominent of these religious zealots is Richard Mourdock, senate candidate from Indiana. This moron says its Gods will if a woman is raped and impregnated. We criticize Koran inspired religious zealotry, but these right-wingers are just as bad when they attempt to impose their distorted and cruel religious views on American women. American Taliban comes to mind. Does President Obama have all the answers? Nope. But he has a plan to keep the Bush tax cuts for the middle class and increase taxes on rich people making more than $250,000 a year. Obama agreed to a 10 to 1 spending cut to tax increase, but Republicans trashed that plan because they have signed pledges to Grover Norquist, a lobbyist, never to increase taxes. To Republicans, their loyalty to Norquist is more important than the wellbeing of America. So much for raising the right hand and swearing to protect and defend the Constitution. Unprincipled!Bad MMoon RRising?Neither Romney economy. The only solution to recovery from economic recession is a government stimulus followed by consumer spending.

NOVEMBER 7, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Keep your eye on OOhioWASHINGTON The most fortuitous decision President Obama made, the one most likely to win him a second term, is the decision to put government money into bailing out the automobile industry. It looks like a no-brainer today, but when he announced the bailout in 2009, it was hotly contested even among Democrats. No one had anything nice to say about the car companies, which had long ago lost their competitive edge by failing to adapt to 21st century energy needs. separate private planes to testify before Congress. They took a verbal lashing from irate lawmakers and the next time they traveled to Washington asking for taxpayer money, they left the jets at home and came by car. It was a small concession and did nothing to assuage the anger at bailing them out. On the campaign trail, Obama says that he bet on American workers and that his bet is paying off in a big way. If he wins reelection, it will be because he carried Ohio and if he carries Ohio, it will be because the auto bailout revived the states economy and Ohio voters know that. The states improved economy is a direct result of a newly robust auto industry rooted mainly in the northern part of Ohio. The economy of southern Ohio, where Governor Romney does better, is reliant on coal, an industry that feels threatened by Obama and his green energy policies. The division in Ohio, old fossil fuel energy versus a new car industry put on a path toward greater fuel savings, symbolizes much of the struggle over politics that divides the country. Obama, with his coalition of minorities, young people and single women, looks more like the countrys future than Romney with his coalition of mainly white men and married women who dont look at government as a partner. If Obama can hold onto what appears to be a small but durable lead in Ohio, he effectively checkmates Romney from achieving the 270 electoral votes needed to win. Real Clear Politics, a web site that aggregates all the public polls to make its predictions, has assigned all the toss-up states to either Obama or Romney, depending which one is ahead in the polls. They assume that Romney takes Colorado, Virginia and Florida and Obama takes Ohio, Iowa and New Hampshire. That would give Obama 281 electoral votes compared to Romneys 257. The numbers could change of course over the next 10 days, but its clear from the candidates travel schedules and where theyre putting their money, that the number of battleground states is narrowing. There are really only a half-dozen: Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia and Florida. The Republicans pretend Wisconsin is in play because its the home state of their vice-presidential pick, Paul Ryan, but its likely to fall into the Obama column. Likewise, the Republicans say that Michigan and Pennsylvania are possible Romney states, but thats a stretch. It could be a long election night, but keep your eye on Ohio, the state that so far is eluding Romney. Obama went a long way to securing Ohio with his early decision to buck the naysayers and support an iconic American industry, however unpopular it was at the time. Romney is now scrambling to say he was for a managed bankruptcy all along, just like Obama, but like the president says, Romney is airbrushing history. Romney called for private money, but the credit markets were frozen, his plan was implausible and General Motors would have gone into Chapter Seven Liquidation, taking a million jobs with it. Obama unconditionally saved the auto industry. End of story.

Last Wednesday, a team including FWC staff, a local veterinarian and a wildlife trapper located the monkey at Country Club Way South and Fairway Avenue South in St. Petersburg and used a tranquilizer dart to temporarily immobilize it for transport. Its important to remove exotic, invasive wildlife and other wildlife that poses a threat to people and the natural environment, said Maj. Dennis Post, regional commander for the FWCs Southwest Region. There has already been one documented bite from this monkey. Rhesus macaques are powerful monkeys capable of seriously injuring an adult human. They also can carry the simian herpesB virus, which can be transmitted to humans. Untreated scratches, bites or cuts from an infected animal could prove fatal. The FWC says its also in the best interest of the monkey to be captured and removed. The urban environment of Tampa Bay is not the monkeys natural habitat and posed a threat to its health, Post said. Rhesus macaques have a highly evolved society where the health and well-being of each individual is largely dependent on the cooperation of other troop members, especially for defense purposes. The monkey will undergo veterinary evaluations and ultimately be placed in an appropriate facility where it can live safely among others of its kind. At its September meeting, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) made several cal ornamental species, which are often collected and displayed in aquariums. These changes include a three-year prohibition on the recreational and commercial harvest of the giant Caribbean sea anemone. The giant anemone, also known as condy or the pink-tipped anemone, is a popular species in the aquarium trade, but commercial harvesters in the marine life industry have come to the FWC with concerns about declining population numbers, especially after the 2010 cold snap. FWC commercial harvest data also suggests there has been a sharp decline in the population. The three-year closure will allow the species time to rebuild its population. Staff will monitor the population and return to the Commission within three years with a proposal for future management of this species. what is considered marine life, which will allow these as hook and line and cast net, and without the requirement that they be kept in an aerated livewell.

NOTTICECE OF November 15, 20121 p.m.EST Open to PublicAmong the many characters who shaped my early life was my fathers younger brother and polar opposite, Billy McClellan. In his life, Uncle Billy had many occupations, ranging from submarine sailor to school teacher to game warden. He was licensed and drive semi-trucks. Before he passed away in 1999, he had raced boats and cars, and crossed both the equator and the Arctic Circle. He was good at anything mechanical, but there was one than merely gifted and in fact approached savant-levels of genius. Uncle Billy may have been the best outboard motor mechanic who ever turned a wrench. He had an intuitive understanding of motors and machines, and watching him open a hood or remove a cowling was like seeing Chet Atkins pick up a guitar. It was second nature, as was his inclination to help anyone who needed it. generous nature on a number of occasions, including once while I was off at basic training. I left my old, raggedy Ford truck parked at my parents house for about four months. It wasnt in good shape to begin with and, after sitting idle for so long, I wondered if it would even crank. But when I got home, my father told me that Uncle Billy had used my truck a couple of times while news because it was beyond his ability to notice a problem came back to a truck that was running far better than it ever had. However, Uncle Billy performed his most memorable mechanical miracle several years before then, when I was about 10 years old. And I dont know if he ever realized what an indelible impact it made on my life. It started with a 1959 3.5-horsepower Johnson outboard that had been sitting in my fathers shed for as long as I could remember. It was old, rusted, and several pieces had been removed and scattered around in various places. For some reason, however, I decided that the old motor should be mine. I spent hours fantasizing about driving it down Iamonia Lake (on my imaginary boat, apparently). All I needed was someone to help me get it running. Daddy said I could have ing that would be the end of it. However, he underestimated my determination to have it running again, and apparently forgot how much his younger brother loved a mechanical challenge. I made an impassioned plea to Uncle Billy, who readily agreed to get it running again, but only if I helped. reason why God created summer breaks. Home from his tug boat duties for a few days, Uncle Billy and I took the motor over to his house and began the meticulous process of tearing it down, piece by piece. With his a wash tub with diesel fuel, we stripped the motor down to its smallest constituent pieces. All the while, he was making careful notes about which needed to be replaced. In the process, Uncle Billy ing detail how an internal combustion engine works, the unique way an outboard operates and why some pieces had to be scrapped while others could be salvaged. After we had the motor disassembled, Uncle Billy had to go back to work on the tug boat. While he was gone, my job was to take each part and clean it thoroughly with diesel fuel. Tibetan monks would have envied my complete devotion to this task. Every day, I walked over to his house and diligently cleaned each piece, being especially careful not to lose a nut, bolt or screw. My other job was to approach my father about the delicate issue of ordering parts. Uncle Billy had made a list of all the things we needed and priced them in a catalog at the old Chevrolet dealership (which also sold Johnson outboards because this was Blountstown and thats how we rolled). He estimated it was going to cost about $30$40, and he wanted to make sure his notoriously cheap older brother was willing to pick up the tab. age to approach Daddy and ask him if it would be okay to order the parts, offering to do odd jobs around the house to work off the bill and Nah, just kidding. Thats what I should have done. What I really did was lie through my teeth. Having that motor was way too important to me to take a chance on Daddy saythat Daddy had approved the purchase, and he went ahead and ordered the parts. I was counting on having the motor repaired and running begic miscalculations like that have been a hallmark of my life and career.) It didnt pan out that way because Daddy came home at lunch one day what I did was wrong, forgave me and left me with a big hug. Nah, just kidding. He hit the roof and threatened to take $40 worth of value off my backside if I ever pulled something like that again. But, he also said he couldnt send the parts back and had to go ahead and pay for them, job. (This was an early lesson in asking forgiveness before permission that has actually served me quite well over the years.) Waiting for Uncle Billy to get back off the tug boat was like waiting for Christmas to come. Every day, I scrubbed parts. Then I would wipe them down and scrub them some more. My biggest fear during this time was that it wasnt going to be good enough and thus delay drive my own motor. After what seemed like a months of waiting, Uncle two-week stint and called me over to reassemble the motor. I remember laying newspaspreading the parts out all across the living room. Aunt Ann had no doubt surrendered her living room to this sort of thing before because she was a lot more tolerant than any other woman Ive known before around us, unfazed by the fact we had turned her home into a makeshift garage. Piece by piece and part by part, we gradually put it all back together. Once again, each component did and why it was necessary. To me it was to a man who had repaired, overhauled and raced some of the largest outboards in production, Im pretty sure it was tire. parts together, it was getting close to 9 p.m. and my brother Bill showed up to bring me home. I distinctly remember two things about what hapFirst, Bill made the comment that the old motor would never crank. He said there was no way it could sit up that long and be resurrected with a few new parts and some TLC. is Uncle Billy smiling as he put the motor in a barrel and yanked the cord. nothing. But on the third pull, that old motor came to life, purring and putting like new. The sight of that motor runand my mind with possibilities. I could tell my buddies honestly that I now had my own outboard motor. (A big deal for a kid back then.) It was a step toward manhood. It was independence. It was redemption. But mostly, it was mine. Of course, I thanked Uncle Billy profusely and I know he was proud of once again seeing a broken, neglected engine return to service. Uncle Billy passed away in 1999 and I tried to make it over to see him one last time, but he died while I was en route. And though Im usually at a loss for words in situations I wanted to say to him before he left us. I didnt get a chance Thanks for taking the time to bring a young boys dream to life before his eyes and for teaching him whats possible with a skilled hand, a sharp mind and a patient heart.Remembering Uncle Billy & the old outboard JIM McCLELLANSOUTDooOORS Down South Uncle Billy had an intuitive understanding of motors and machines, and watching him open a hood or remove a cowling was like seeing Chet Atkins pick up a guitar.RRE-ELECTT Margie LaramoreSUpPERVisoISORofOF EELECTionsIONSPolitical advertisement paid for & approved by Margie Laramore, NPA, for Supervisor of Elections

Page 18 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTo OBER 31, 2012 I would greatly appreciate your vote on November 6.To the editor: How many of you have heard about the zero tolerance policy for bullying that has been placed within our school systems? I personally, have heard this statement many times, but I have to ask, just how often is this rule actually enforced? Which leads me to this. If your child is being bullied and you, or your child are not in some sort of clique, or have certain last names, then its either swept under a rug and ignored or turned around to look as though it is your child who is doing the bullying. Well, not everyone is fortunate enough to have been born with a silver spoon in their mouth, or to be welcomed in to the right group of people. That doesnt mean, however, that the lower class students are always the ones that start trouble. What ever happened to defending yourself if someone is bothering you and continues to oppress you after you have repeatedly asked them to leave you alone? If a student is defending ones self because they have repeatedly asked someone to leave them alone, then you would think that a teacher or administrator would stop the other person. Not just punish one but punish both. Not only am I talking about bullying between two students, but bullying between students and staff. I have had several incidences where my child has been bullied by teachers as well as people within the administration. How do we stop this? I know my children are not saints and would never presume to say that they are; I accept the fact that they are not, but neither is anyone else and no person, group, click or the like, have the right to bully my children, or anyone elses. When you cant go to the administration or to the superintendent, then who do you go to? Donna Goff, BristolA plea for help: Stop the bullying!To the editor: I especially want to thank the constituents of Calhoun County Commission District Three for their support and the opportunity to serve them and the county as a whole for the last four years. During that time, I have tried to carry out the duties of the Commission in a business-like manner, deciding for the effective and wise use of our countys money your money. Commission was faced with the cost of one new polling site and rehab of others. This would have cost thousands of dollars. The Commission voted to move the sites. Let me emphasize this was a responsibility of the Commission, not the Supervisor of Elections the decision and it did. God bless all of you and God bless the United States. Don Miller, Calhoun Commissioner, District Three SPEAK UP!Write: The Journal, P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321 or email us at: thejournal@fairpoint.net with a letter to the editorCommission voted to move polling sitesTo the editor: The upcoming election will be the most important election of our lifetime. The elected President will be able to place one or more judges on the Supreme Court. These judges terms are for their lifetime. The decisions handed down by them will affect our children and their children even to the fourth generation. These judges usually votes their decision as the President who appoints them. I speak not as a Democrat or Republican, I speak as a man of God. Today, in many schools, the word of God has been stricken, or the phrase God Bless America forbidden. We fought, gave our blood and even our homes, we are forbidden to display. The Devil with a capital D, can go into our schools and sponsor a dance, but a preacher cant go in and hold a church service. In Jeremiah 1:5 God said: Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee: and before thow came forth out of the womb I sancnations. Therefore God knew us before we were formed, for we are formed in the mind of God and are humans at the moment of conception. Therefore, the morning after pill is the killing of an unborn human being. Our present government says it is a womans right to choose, even at taxpayers expense. But God says its murder. God spoke to me and said: America is down to its knees and this is our last chance. I will not attempt to tell you how to vote, but I will ask you two questions: determine.

I have 8 years of experience in the superintendents ofence as a principal, and 9 years experience as a teacher in elementary, middle school, high school, and the C.A.R.E. program. I have always had a heart and a passion for students. I have invested time, money, and effort to support students and their causes. I have helped many students with issues, problems, and needs even after the graduated when they fell on hard times. My good friend and ex-opponent Julie Leonard Smith dropped out of the race due to severe health issues. She was a worthy opponent and lifelong friend and she is facing a much tougher opponent than a political one. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers they are more important than votes. Rumors have it that one of my opponents is coming out with a late mailer with issues throw at you so late that I will have no time to respond. If so all l can say is that I have been upfront and stuck to issues of concern. I am proud of my record and accomplishments, and I hope that is what I am judged on. I have invested time and effort to be the best superintendent I could be to represent you and make you proud. Our district is one of the most elite in the state when it comes to performance.

The pumpkin is covered in a skin that surrounds the pulp, or the meaty part of the pumpkin. The stem is at the top of the pumpkin and connects to the vine. Tendrils are thin pieces of vine that tether the pumpkin to the ground to protect it from the wind and weather. The inside of the pumpkin is known as the cavity and can contain seeds pumpkin is known as the blossom end before the pumpkin formed. Most varieties of pumpkins are edible, but some taste better than others. Once pumpkins turn orange they can be eaten. People bake the meat into pies, soups and stews. It can also be used in breads and cakes. Pumpkin puree can replace the oil in cake recipes much in the same way applesauce can. Adding pumpkin to recipes provides a healthy way to increase nutritional value. There are many interesting pieces of trivia regarding pumpkins. Here are some things to ponder. Pumpkins were once believed to eliminate freckles and were also used as a remedy for snake bites. In 2007, people in Boston earned the world record for the most lit pumpkins with 30,128 twinkling jacko-lanterns. Thousands of people participate in pumpkin chucking, an event where air cannons propel pumpkins thousands of feet. Each year people compete to see who can launch a pumpkin the farthest. On September 25, 2010, people in New Bremen, Ohio, broke their own record when they baked a 3,699 pound pumpkin, surpassing their prior record of 2,020 pounds. Pumpkins are a seasonal delight to many come the fall. But in addition to being delicious, theyre also interesting.Dig into these pumpkin facts

Blountstown ElementaryParaprofessionals play an important part in Blountstown High School reaching The GoldBlountstown High School paraprofessionals play a major part in the functioning of the school. A paraprofessional is someone who assists students. Paraprofessionals keep students on task as well as enforce the rules of the teacher and school. They assist some students with individual needs. The staff of paraprofessionals at BHS includes Mrs. Lisa Hobby, Mrs. Shannon Charles Buggs. Mrs. Hobby graduated from Valiant, OK. Her favorite part of her job is helping students accomplish things they normally wouldnt be able to. She enjoys getting to know her students. Mrs. Hobby wants students to know that her job as a paraprofessional is different than some paraprofessionals; shes been lucky to be with the same student since Pre-K and she feels like hes family. Mrs. Hobby is married with two grown kids and a grandson. BHS this past year, she makes a great impact on the new campus. She graduated from Sneads High School. She believes that performing her job effectively allows students to learn in an uninterrupted ish her college degree to become a teacher and may continue to further her education after her children are grown. She has been married daughter. Mr. Reed graduated from Blountstown High School. Mr. Reed wants people to know that to be a paraprofessional you must have an afnancially, but your reward from God is knowing that you have done your best to help someone. He wants Gospel full time. Miss Johnny Mae decision to be a paraprofessional. He sons and two grandsons. Coach Charles Buggs believes that his job is just as important as anyone in the school because the staff of BHS work at the school for the same reason, helping the kids to become better people in life and accomplishing the ultimate goal of graduating high school. Coach Buggs graduated from Blountstown include playing softball, hanging out with his family and friends and weightlifting. Coach Buggs wants to complete his degree in Sports Management and land a teaching job. Ultimately his goal is to be the head coach of his own football team. He is inspired by his family and says that without them there wouldnt be any reason to do what he does. From what I have gathered from interviewing these paraprofessionals, I believe it is a rewarding career if you enjoy helping others or just love kids. All in all, I believe that paraprofessionals are an important asset to this school. I encourage anyone who is interested to learn more about how much paraprofessionals contribute to this school. blountstown high school The Calhoun Liberty JoOUrnalRNALServing two counties that make up one great community!
