Judge injured in 15-foot fall head rst from shooting stand by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA mishap in a tree stand left Liberty County Judge Ken Hosford with a broken collarbone, four broken ribs, six damaged vertebrae and a severe concussion Saturday Kentucky. He said he realized there was a problem with the two-man shooting stand as soon as he climbed up. I saw that the stand was real insecure when I got in it, he said. Everytime the wind would blow the stand would sway. He said he opened the door and looked out to see that one of the wooden support beams appeared to be completely cut in half while the other was crimped. when I heard a board crack, he said. The stand was like a trap door and the metal braces held. That was about the last thing I remember. plunging about 15 feet to the ground. He struck his head on the way down and landed on his left shoulder. The doctor told me that the collarbone and ribs giving way spared my shoulder and acted like a shock absorber, he said. The impact knocked him unconscious, but he came to long enough to make two phone calls to his hunting companions, John Daniels and Darreyl Duggar. I have no recollection of calling them, checking his phone log. They said he told them, Im hurt, Im hurt. Daniels first thought he wasSee JUDGE HOSFORD continued on page 2 JUDGeE KeEN HOSFORD News from the Pews...10 Birthdays.....12 Speak Up!...14 Obituaries...23 TrophyCatch...28 Classieds...26 & 27 Sheriff's Log...2 Community Calendar...4 Get some help with the Great American Smokeout...5 Commentary...6 & 7 C LJNews.com WEDnNEsSDaA Y, NoOVEMbBER 14 2012 VV ol. 32, No. 45 J OURRNAL THE CalALHounOUN-LIbBERt TY 50 INCLudesUDES TAX LLiberty C County High Schools L Lady Dawgs celebrate their win Saturday over Sneads in three straight games.

We remind our readers that all are presumed innocent until proven guilty. A 24-year-old Panama City resident was charged with DUI after a Liberty County Sheriffs Deputy responding to a reckless driving complaint witnessed her vehicle swerving across SR 20 while heading for Bristol at 12:30 a.m. Sunday. As Deputy Jonathan Gentry drove up behind the 2005 Toyota, he saw the westbound vehicle go into the oncoming lane, entering the eastbound shoulder of the road and continuing on before nearly hitting the side of Telogia Creek Bridge. The vehicle then veered back into the westbound lane. After he stopped the vehicle, the deputy approached the driver, Karen Williams, and noted the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage. His report stated that her speech was slurred and her eyes were bloodshot. When asked if she had been drinking, Williams replied that she had a couple. She then stated, I might have drank a little too much for my size. After failing a roadside sobriety test, she was taken into custody. Breath samples showed she was more than twice over the legal limit of .08, with readings of .207 and .188. She was charged with DUI. She was later released on $500 bond. kidding around but Duggar realized he wasnt. He was on his back and rolled over to try to get to his knees when he felt what he described as a bag of rocks crunching in his shoulder. Then I knew I was seriously hurt, he said. His friends called for help and went looking for him. He had parked about a half mile from the stand before walking into the woods. He said he was unconscious for the better part of the day. They arrived within about 30 or 40 minutes, put him in a truck and brought him to a highway, where an ambulance was waiting. He was taken to the University of Kentucky Trauma Center at Lexington, where he remained for two nights. The doctor told me I could have easily suffered brain damage, gotten paralyzed or died, he said. I really feel like the Lord was with me, he said, adding that he has much to be thankful for as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches. Ive got four little young uns that need a daddy. Im thankful Im going to still be around for that, he said. He was anxious to get back to his home in Hosford but the doctor would not allow him to the 12-hour drive to get him and bring him home, where he is now recuperating. He said hes doing well but whenever he starts to stand, hes quickly reminded of his injuries. Hes already started signing paperwork that needs his attention and said he will conduct first appearances by phone if necessary. Hes not sure yet if he will be able to swear in planned next week but hopes he will be able to. He said he was humbled by the love, prayers and concern shown since his accident. He said the trajectory of his fall changed when he hit his head, which probably spared him from life-threatening injury. That, along with the fact, that Im a hard-headed hunter.JUUDGEE HOHOSFORORD continued from the front page WW oman held on $22,500 bond following DUUI arrest after crash ARREST REPORTS compiled by Journal Editor Teresa Eubanks BUMbBLE BEE TRAPS$10.00AVAILABLE AT THE PANHANDLE PIONEER SETTLEMENTS POST OFFICE & GENERAL STORERReckless driving report results in DUUI arrest early Sunday a.m.A Tallahassee woman who refused to give a breath sample to determine if was involved in a single-vehicle crash was charged with DUI last week.

The 1997 Nissan Pathfinder she was driving crossed the oncoming lane and went onto the eastbound ditch, where it hit a pine tree.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 14, 2012 COMMENTARYCORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Late Night LaughsA recaRECAP oOF recentRECENT obOBSerER Vation ATIONS by BY lateLATE niNIGhtHT tV TV hoHOStTS.In the recent presidential election, the Republican Party was introduced to the reality of a changing America. The days of white, predominately male, voters dominating presidential elections are over. The browning of America is relegating what was once a white majority to minority status. White voters as a group have been decreasing in size for many years. Today, approximately 72 percent of voters are white, down from 74 percent in 2008. According to the Associated Press, white men made up 34 percent of the electorate this year, down from 46 percent in 1972. Conversely, nonwhites made up 28 percent of the electorate this year, compared with 20 percent in 2000. In their angst over losing the presidency to President Obama, Republicans are licking their wounds and vowing a comeback. It wont happen if they depend on expanding an ever decreasing segment of societythe white voters. You cannot expand something that is getting smaller. No surprise here, but if the GOP is going to maintain any relevance in American society and politics, then the GOP needs a major makeover. That makeover means that they have to have some appeal for Hispanics, blacks and other nonwhites. Immigration comes to mind. Threatening to build fences and deport people who have been in the U.S. for decades wont sell. The U.S. cant round up and deport millions of people. So, work out a solution for those here without pay taxes and participate in society without looking over their shoulder. I know they broke the law by coming here without papers, but migrant workers are a major part of agriculture production in the southern states. There is a method for workers to come to the U.S. and work. Ask farmers in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. They need stoop labor to bring in the crops. My daughter manages a restaurant, and she hires foreigners for restaurant work. She deals with an authorized agent whose business it is to provide temporary workers. There are many Hispanics in the town where I live employed in the lawn mowing business. The Republican refrain of smaller government, less regulations and lower taxes is a worn out battle cry. Smaller government means shut down someone elses part of the government, not theirs. Conservatives in the area where I live go nuts if a politician suggests a penny tax increase for the school system or infrastructure projects. But, if the government tries to move any of the military units in this area, they collectively grab pitchforks and shotguns and head for Washington. Dont touch my part of the government, particularly the part that fuels the local economy. Hypocrisy comes to mind. Republicans need to stop commenting on womens healthcare. Stay out of their business. Nothing is more ludicrous than an old man discussing women and rape. Some things cant be solved. Abortion is one of those issues. Give it a rest. Put away the race card. Stop with the dog whistle racial comments. Im a southerner. Racism is alive and well in America, particularly in the South. In my view, its a compliment to the intelligence of the American people, at least to some of them, that the country the sense to re-elect him. I doubt that the GOP has a clue about how the younger generation views politics, politicians, race, gays and social issues. They arent conservative in their views. They are color blind to race. They know who is gay, but it doesnt matter. They cant imagine politicians telling them how to care for their bodies. How do I know anything about the high school and college age people? I have an 18-year-old granddaughter who keeps me informed. She shares her views and her friends views on social issues with me. Im not judgmental, I just listen. Its enpresidential election just held. AA death knell for the GOOPThe head of the CIA and former G General David P Petraeus has resigned because of an extramarital affair. S So guys, let that be a lesson for you. If the CIA director cant keep an affair secret, you dont have a chance. JAY LENOThe election has been over for days, but already theres a new survey that says Hillary Clinton is favored to win the Iowa caucuses in 2016. Youd think they could have at least waited until we peeled the I voted stickers off our jackets. JIMMY KIMMELThe big story here in Los Angeles is the Lakers ing so bad that P President Obama and Chris Christie toured the S Staples Center today. JAY LENOA lot of people are still coming to grips with Mitt Romneys loss. It was reported that the morning after the election, Mitt Romneys family gathered to share a gallon of chocolate milk. In other words, they are taking it much harder than we thought. ConanONAN OBrienRIENThe Lakers are playing so bad that their illegitimate kids now claim the Clippers are their real fathers. JAY LENOI heard an update from Con Edison, the electricity company. They said the Republicans now will be without power for the next four years. DAV VID LETTERMAN a cab for Diane S Sawyer... The rumor is that Diane S Sawyer allegedly had been drinking on election night. In fact, today Mitt Romney called and said, You got any left? JAY LENOThousands of people complained on Twitter after F Facebook went down for 60 seconds. It reminded me of the time my great-grandparents complained about having to make soup out of shoes during World War II. JIMMY FF ALLONWhat is going on in F Florida? They still havent at this point, F Florida shouldnt even be allowed to vote for American Idol. JAY LENO Doctor No. S Sean Connery looked so cool, kissing Ursula Andress on that lush tropical island. Not only did Connery play James Bond, but his chest hair doubled as the lush tropical island. CRAIGG FFERGGUSSONThe U.SS. P Postal S Service announced they are expecting this years holiday season to be their busiest ever and also their slowest ever. Thats probably the only business in America that complains about being busy. JIMMY KIMMELI knew Obama was going to win. I knew this little secret. Use it next time there is an election and see if it doesnt work out. The guy who wins the presidential election is usually the guy who kills bin Laden. DAV VID LETTERMANIm not buying any Christmas gifts until December 22 because that Mayan thing says the world is ending on the 21st. If it happens, I dont want to have wasted money on gifts. CRAIGG FFERGGUSSONI always wonder what the day after the election is like for the candidate who loses. You get so close to becoming the most powerful person in the world and just like that, you wake up hoping to get a call from Dancing With the SStars. JIMMY KIMMEL The younger generation arent conservative in their views. They are color blind to race. They know who is gay, but it doesnt matter. They cant imagine politicians telling them how to care for their bodies.

NOVEMBER 21, 2012 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Ideological coalitionsWASHINGTON As Pres. Obama and his legislative team scope out the new Congress that will return in January, they should think less in terms of party with like-minded lawmakers. Were edging closer to a parliamentary system where one party rarely gets a majority and a ruling coalition must be formed. Obama can do that across party lines on ideology instead of issue by issue, creating one coalition with Republicans who tend to be moderate on social issues and another coaliand another with Republicans who share his world view on foreign policy and defense issues and still another on minority rights and immigration. Republicans are currently in disarray. Tea Party candidates cost the GOP Senate seats in Missouri and Indiana. Republicans dislike and fear the Tea Party and there are some who are willing to stand up and say there is room for compromise in a democracy. Finding and identifying those Republicans, particularly in the Senate, is the key to a successful second term legislatively for Obama. GOP obstructionism won them the House in 2010, but in 2012, voters punished the GOP for its extremism and this fact makes coalition-building a real possibility. Republicans minimize the two seats gained by the Democrats, but 55 seats is a lot closer to reaching a he can hold all the Democrats. Five is both a lot and a little a lot if you look at the composition of the Senate Republicans, most of whom are very conservative but on them from outside players, perhaps from New York Mayor Bloomberg, or from heightened public opinion that Obama can generate by using the bully pulpit. The House is a tougher challenge. Ten or 11 of the most ardent Tea Party members were defeated, but there are still plenty left and the House Republican caucus is still very conservative. Speaker Boehner has got to watch his back as Majority Leader Eric Cantor positions himself for a possible challenge. Still, looking at the numbers, if Boehner reached a so-called Grand Bargain with Obama Republican members to join the Democrats. This is admittedly fanciful since Boehner only likes to pass legislation with a majority of Republicans, but its possible at least in theory and should open up White House thinking to new and different ways to approach Congress. Its been 30 years since President Reagan worked successfully with a Democratic House led by Speaker Tip ONeill. It was a different era and partisan lines werent as hardened as they are today. But Reagan picked off like-minded Democrats, mainly in the South, who were dubbed boll weevils. Republicans who formed alliances with Democrats were called Gypsy Moths. The boll weevils are gone, retired or switched to the GOP and their descendants are the Blue Dog Democrats. Unfortunately there has been no obvious counterpart Perhaps the election and antipathy toward the Tea Party will change that.

NEWS FROM THE PEWSNovember declared Manatee Awareness Month in Floridacial state marine mammal, is an iconic American species, popular around the world. Governor Rick Scotts declaration of November as Manatee Awareness Month in Florida helps heighten public awareness about the importance of protecting Floridas endangered, beloved manatees. The proclamation is a time-honored tradition undertaken by Floridas the month of November as Manatee Awareness Month. Save the Manatee Club thanks Governor Scott for recognizing the importance of manatees by signing the proclamation, said Patrick Rose, Executive Director of Save the Manatee Club. Since our mission is to protect manatees and their habitat for future generations, we encourage everyone, especially those who enjoy being out on our Florida waters, to keep a close lookout for these amazing marine mammals, not just in November but throughout the year. November is also the time of year when manatees are on the move, making their way to important winter warm-water sites in Florida. Since they are a subtropical species, manatees cannot tolerate prolonged exposure to water temperatures below 68 degrees Fahrenheit. The Club reminds boaters that many seasonal manatee zones in Florida are in effect by early November and to pay close attention to posted signage indicating slow or idle speeds, as manatees are often injured or killed by boat strikes and other human activities. Also, the boating community is urged to please keep their distance from migrating manatees or manatees congregated at warm-water sites during the winter months to avoid disturbing or harassing the manatees. Manatees are listed as endangered at the international, federal and state levels. The Club offers a variety of ways for the public in Florida to be directly involved with manatee protection. Free public awareness waterway signage, boating banners and decals, waterway cards and educational posters are produced by the Club. The bright yellow waterproof banner which boldly cautions, Please Slow: Manatees Below, can assist in warning boaters to slow down for manatees who may be present. Shoreline property signs and matching boat decals are also available, featuring the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions hotline number (1 (888) 404-3922) for reporting sick and injured manatees. Boater and diver awareness posters are also available to dive shops, marinas, businesses, visitor centers, classrooms and libraries. Family-friendly two-foot by three-foot outdoor signs are produced by the Club and distributed to state, municipal and county parks; marinas and other sites where human/manatee interactions can be a problem. As we celebrate manatees during Manatee Awareness Month, together lets continue to build better, safer lives for them, says Rose. For more information on endangered manatees, the Adopt-A-Manatee program, or to sign up for the Clubs free e-newsletter, visit the Clubs website at www.savethemanatee.org. Look for Manatee Protection Tips for Boaters on the Clubs website at www.savethemanatee.org/boatertips.htm. Earlier this year, Save the Manatee Club launched live manatee webcams at Blue Spring State Park, making it possible to watch manatees in real time during the winter months. Throughout other months of the year, the public can watch recorded video of manatees and live scenes of Florida wildlife and habitat within the spring run and adjacent St. Johns River. Watch at manatv.org.

The changes will make it easier for Florida veterans and veterans with disabilities to enter the commerGovernor Rick Scott said, We have a tremendous opportunity not only to give thanks to the men and women that served our nation so courageously, but also to provide them with more support so they can purin Florida. This initiative will expand job opportunities for our veterans and get more folks involved industry, which is a winwin for Florida. The Commission adopted these changes at its September meeting and made a formal announcement of the changes in a media event Nov. 9. I am excited to be extending this opportunity to the men and women who so bravely served our country, said Commissioner Charles W. Roberts III. Job creation and Floridas economy are priorities for everyone, including the FWC. Our hope is that more of Floridas veterans and veterans with disabilities, especially those who have recently returned from active duty, will be able to partake in the commercial seafood this opportunity. The changes will modify income requirements for many of Florida veterans seeking a commercial restricted species endorsement, which allows commercial harvesters to that are designated as restricted. Spanish and king mackerel, flounder, shrimp, mahi mahi and several among the list of species that require a restricted species endorsement. Before, commercial harvesters attempting to qualify for a restricted species endorsement must hold a Florida Saltwater Products License, which is Floridas comlicense and be able to attribute $5,000 or 25 percent of their total annual income during one of the past three years to sales of saltwater products. With the new changes in place, restricted species endorsement income requirements will be waived for one license year (July 1 June 30) for Florida veterans who were honorably discharged between Sept. 11, 2001 and June 30, 2014. After June 30, 2014, this income-requirement waiver will continue to extend to Florida veterans as long as they apply within four years of an honorable discharge. The one-license-year waiver also extends to all honorably discharged veterans with serviceconnected disabilities, regardless of when they were discharged. After the one-year waiver expires, veterans with serviceconnected disabilities will also have a reduced income requirement of $2,500 instead of $5,000. All other veterans must meet the $5,000 income requirement after the oneyear waiver expires. To qualify for these exemptions, veterans must be partment of Veterans AfForces to have at least a 10-percent disability that is service-connected. I salute the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for making it easier for Floridas veterans to become said Mike Prendergast, executive director of the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs. With more than 1.6 million veterans in Florida, including nearly 260,000 with service-connected disabilities, this new opportunity provides an avenue to help them achieve their dreams after honorable military service.

Page 14 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 14, 2012To the editor: The United States Congress has deemed the week of Nov. 11 as Nurse Practitioner Week. It has been projected that in the next few will leave the workforce. This will worsen the physician shortage that already exists in our country. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recognizes that research confirms that nurse practitioners deliver safe, high-quality primary care and recommends that they should assume leadership roles as changes in the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) are enacted. The IOM also recommends that the restrictions currently placed upon nurse practitioners be removed so that they can provide the healthcare that they are In September of this year, the Florida stance to work against expanded scope issues of nurse practitioners. FMA does not want nurse practitioners to be able to Baker Act a suicidal patient or to write a prescription for cough syrup with codeine when you have pneumonia. This, in spite of a 2011 letter from the Federal Trade Commission asking that the Florida Legislation remove the "trade restrictions" placed upon its nurse practitioners. Most FMA members are physicians from large cities and/or South Florida who care little about healthcare issues in rural areas. These Florida physicians heavily contribute to the election campaigns of high ranking state law makers. If you have received healthcare in Calhoun County from the health department seen a nurse practitioner. We are fortunate that our access to healthcare is not solely dependent upon physician services. If you see your nurse practitioner this week, ask him/her any questions you may have about their profession and please support their continued effort to provide high quality, affordable healthcare.

Research has been shown that a child growing up in a home has a very high chance of being the same as their parents no matter how hard they try. Many parents do not realize how this is possible. ence of his/her parent most of the time and the child wants to follow in their footsteps or be nothing like them.

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorI wanted to go one more time, said Capt. Albert J. Lane, a 90-yearold veteran now living in Jackson County who came to see the Memphis Belle B-17 bomber that made a stop in Tallahassee Monday. Its been 65 years since he was in such an aircraft. He was just 22 25 missions over Germany. The one he rode in Monday was built in 1945, never saw combat and serves as a replica of the original Memphis Belle. It was used in the The original Memphis Belle was duty during WWII. Its also revered because despite substantial damage, all who flew the Memphis Belle returned from their missions without injury. The bomber is part of the non-profit Liberty Foundations 2012 Salute to Veterans Tour, which brings a true piece of history to over Tallahassees Veterans Day Parade. Unlike a group gathered for a tour of the aircraft at the Tallahassee Regional Airport, Lane wasnt there to learn something new. He was there to remember. And he said it all came back to him once he got on board. The engine sounded the same, the vibrations were the same and the fumes were the same, he said about riding in the exact kind of plane he went to war in. He was a nine-year-old farm boy in went to a one room school. I was walking to school one morning when I heard a noise. A plane with motor trouble was coming He ran to have a look, inspired by the many The Red Baron. A few years later, at the age of 15, he was an FFA member showing a jersey heifer at the Mason County Fair. Outside cut a path down through it and there was a Barnstormer an open cockpit airplane giving rides, he said. He and a buddy two of us got in the open cockpit, the pilot took off, circled the fairgrounds ride in an airplane. Just a few years later, he was behind the controls of a B-17 bomber. He said hes alive today because of the actions of four Tuskeegee Airmen who came to his rescue. I was shot out of formation over Berlin, he said. My oxygen was shot out and I had one engine. He had to make a quick descent. I was at 32,000 feet; you have to get down to 15,000 feet in two minutes with no oxygen, he said. The German boys had twin engine jets above us that could see when we had a cripple come out of formation. One came in on my left wing. He slowed down and looked at me. I looked at him. He said the pilot started chased him away. The Tuskeegee Airmen saved my life, he said. Widowed in 2007, he remains at the home he shared with his late wife in Greenwood. Mondays adventure took a toll on him but he enjoyed it, he said. My body at 90 isnt quite what it was at 22. I got home, sat down, took two aspirin and never moved for four hours, he laughed. And then he added, It was the ride of a lifetime.Ninety-year-old veteran enjoys one more rideThe Memphis Belle comes to Tallahassee on national tour Capt. Albert J.

They enjoyed the experience, which Shoemake said makes you realize how harsh conditions were for the crew in WW II. There were no creature comforts, he said after exploring the aircraft. Its built for battle. It was rough and noisy, open to the elements and you can smell the exhaust. But once in the air, it was a smooth ride. There was no rattling or bumping. He said the aircrafts large balloon tires kind of gave them a bounce when it landed. Its a great experience to be able to learn what folks who fought in WW II experienced, he said.

Lady Dawgs heading to stateThe Liberty County Girls Volleyball team will be loading up on the bus Wednesday to start their trip to Kissimmee, where they will If we win one more, well play for the state championship, said Coach Jennifer Sewell. Its the second time in our school history for the girls. The Lady Dawgs earned that right by beating Sneads in three straight games Saturday in Bristol, with scores of 25-21; 25-21 and 25-17. The fans erupted when the girls won and the team celebrated on the court. Statistics for the match include 11 kills for Shelby White. Ashley Sikes had 9 assists and 7 points, Sydney Sanders had 14 assists, Chelsea Gowin added 12 service points and two aces, Carley Sellers had 9 service points and Carly Sapp had 13 digs. We had the best three days of practice this week, Sewell said. They realized their hard work is paying off. Some of the kids have been playing four years, she said. Everybody knew the whole time of how they were capable of it. Saturday, the girls were focused and ready to play. Sewell admits their opponent that day was a little cocky.

In the U.S., about half of the countrys drinking water comes from groundwater sources. Many rural areas derive all of their drinking water from groundwater, which also provides 40 percent of the irrigation needs of American farmers. While underground aquifers may at one point have seemed limitless, huge demand for water (especially in arid areas like the Southwest) means that groundwater reserves are precious and need to be carefully managed with conservation in mind. Also, groundwater is easily contaminated by any number of common man-made products like gasoline, oil, road salts, pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals. tralizedlocal and regional water authorities manage supplies for municipalities and counties around the countrybut oversight comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as mandated by the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act. Enacted in 1972, the Clean Water Act addresses water pollution in general and requires everyone, but especially large water users including large industrial and agricultural operations, to non-polluting manner. Meanwhile, 1974s Safe Drinking Water Act requires the EPA to set standards for drinking water quality that the 150,000 public water entities across the country must meet. Third party laboratories provide detailed analyses to ensure that local supplies live up to the EPAs expectations. These laws work together to keep groundwater supplies safe, but environmentalists would like to see both strengthened substantially in the face of drought-inducing global warming and other threats. While regulation and enforcement of industry and agriculture are important for protecting our limited groundwater supplies, consumers also must play a role. The Groundwater Foundation, a Nebraska-based nonensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations, suggests taking short showers, shutting off the faucet while brushing teeth and shaving, running full loads of dishes and laundry, checking for leaky faucets only when necessary. Likewise, the group advocates that consumers recycle used motor oils, limit the amount of fertilizer and pesticides used on plants, lawns and gardens, and generally reduce household chemical use. And leftover chemicals should be disposed of at hazardous com), not down the drain or into the gutter. Another way to help is to initiate a Source Water Protection process, which involves locating local groundwater sources and identifying ways to protect and conserve them. Anyone interested in doing so can download the Groundwater Foundations free Source Water Assessment and Protection Workshop Guide, which has detailed information about a number of source water protection strategies and additional information on areas where the Safe Drinking Water Act and Clean Water Act intersect. of Groundwater and Drinking Water, which considers deliberating land use and water quality issues.What is the Burrowing Owl Conservation Network and why is it so important to put so much effort into saving one species?                         -Ginny Bateman, Portland, ORWestern burrowing owls (Athene cunicularia) are tiny, long-legged members of the owl family, native to the Americas and preferring open landscapes where they can dig new holes or use existing ones (such as abandoned prairie dog, skunk or armadillo homes) to nest and rear their young. Unlike most other owl species, these small but charismatic birds are more often seen out and about during daylight hours, but they are most active and do their primary feeding at night, preferring a diet of small rodents and large insects. Once a common species in California and across North America, the Western burrowing owl  has become a rarer and rarer sight over the last three decades given habitat loss and other environmental perils the bird faces. Biologists consider the bird an indicator of wider ecosystem health, so if its population numbers are healthy then local ecosystems are likely thriving. But these days the bird is endangered in Canada and threatened in Mexico, is a state endangered species in Colorado, and is considered a species of special concern in Florida and most of the western U.S. It is also listed on the International Union for Conservation of Natures (IUCNs) international Red List of endangered and threatened species (albeit as a species of Least Concern in comparison with others in more dire straits). A group of dedicated birders, conservationists, biologists and concerned citizens in San Franciscos East Bay came together to protect dwindling burrowing owl populations locally but ended up creating a movement that spans the entire North American continent. Their group, the Burrowing Owl Conservation Network (BOCN) believes that burrowing owls are vital to maintaining healthy, functioning ecosystems, and as such is working on several fronts to help protect habitat and reverse the animals population slide. First and foremost, BOCN works to conserve habitat for burrowing owls in California and beyond, including rowing owl colonies while larger ecosystem restoration efforts are underway. Teaching children and communities about ways they can help protect and improve burrowing owl habitat is another important part of BOCNs work. Other ways the group helps the owls is by advocating for legislation and policy changes that encourage conservation of habitat, networking with like-minded laboratory research to increase understanding about how to help burrowing owls and create habitat conditions ideal for their survival. The fact that burrowing owl populations in other parts of the world are rebounding gives hope to BOCN and other wildlife advocates and environmentalists. The birds are common and widespread in Central and South parks in urban areas. Whether the birds can replicate their success in Latin America up north remains to be seen. As for what readers can do to help, learning about the behavior, biology and habitat needs of wild animals like the burrowing owl is a sure way to develop respect for natures inhabitants and a lifelong willingness to protect them. And nothing beats witnessing burrowing owls go about their rounds. Seeing them in the wild is enough to convince anyone

Chipola espite how it may seem to those outside the South, sucker fishing is only about 80 percent as ridiculous as a sucker and people do catch and eat them. But beyond that, yep, its pretty ridiculous. First, some background: Suckers bottom of rivers, using their snouts to eat. In the winter, they travel up small, gravel-bottom streams and lay their eggs among the rocks. Then they swim back into the river like deadbeat parents, leaving their young to fend for themselves. I assume they do this so they dont accidentally eat their own eggs which, come to think of it, probably is worse than abandoning them. its start. I assume, way back when, some smart soul saw all upstream and said to himself, Self, theres only one way those the river. And with that, I envision him standing there for days, waiting for them to swim back by so he could grab them with his bare hands. At some point, Im sure a much smarter person came up with the idea of using a piece of chicken wire to stop them from getting into the river and another to keep them from going back upstream. Traditionally, when the suckers were running, a group of men (because women were usually too smart for this sort of thing) would gather at the creek If necessary, young boys could be sent in the ice-cold water and fetch them up by hand. (Because boys were dumb and cooked and eaten on the spot, but only after cleaning and gashing them. In addition to being ugly, suckers are also bony. So much so that the best way to cook them is to leave the bones in and make diagonal cuts through them. Deep and all. hold much fascination for me. That time of year, I was thoroughly focused on hunting and have the grades to prove it. On the other hand, it was something to do in Blountstown on a Saturday night in winter. So occasionally Gary Wayne Purvis, Brad Guilford and I would go after them the hard way by wandering around Fox and Wildcat creeks with flashlights, trying to gig them. This of course always ended with us coming home late, soaking wet and why wouldnt you push each other into freezing water in the middle of the woods at midnight?) One night, however, G.W. and I set out to do it up right. We camped out on the version of chicken wire across the creek. A novice might have mistaken this for a gill net, but I can assure you, based on a discussion with my lawyer, that it was chicken wire with a lead line along the bottom and a cork line across the top. In fact, it remains the most effective chicken wire Ive That night, we got a least a dozen big suckers, but there were only two of us and we didnt Plus, we had to go out that night because there was remote possibility of meeting girls. The next day, we hunted for a while, packed our stuff and went home with a cooler full of uncleaned suckers. G.W. had generously decided I should take them, in part because he had done a big sucker cookout the weekend before, but mostly because I think he knew what was going to happen next. When I got home, I brought the ice chest to the door to show my father. What should I do with them? I asked (with no small amount of pride in my voice.) Daddy looked in the cooler at the dayright back there in the woods. What?!?! I couldnt believe it. Thats when Daddy explained that suckers are only okay under the best circumstances right out of the water and straight into the grease. They go from edible to nasty with every minute that passes after that. He said the real reason people ate suckers is because shellcrackers and such arent usually biting and that was about the best option available. Although he didnt mention it, I suspect that it also was a good excuse drink liquor and laugh at your offspring splashing around in freezing cold water hands. As I look back on it, fishing for suckers is a pretty good description of the whole exercise. The trick is not to be the sucker.Calhoun County native Jim McClellan grew up hunting, the same Apalachicola River of his family has enjoyed. He lives in Pensacola.

Judge injured in 15-foot fall head rst from shooting stand by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor A mishap in a tree stand left Liberty County Judge Ken Hosford with a broken collarbone, four broken ribs, six damaged vertebrae and a severe concussion Saturday Kentucky. He said he realized there was a problem with the two-man shooting stand as soon as he climbed up. I saw that the stand was real insecure when I got in it, he said. Everytime the wind would blow the stand would sway. He said he opened the door and looked out to see that one of the wooden support beams appeared to be completely cut in half while the other was crimped. when I heard a board crack, he said. The stand was like a trap door and the metal braces held. That was about the last thing I remember. plunging about 15 feet to the ground. He struck his head on the way down and landed on his left shoulder. The doctor told me that the collarbone and ribs giving way spared my shoulder and acted like a shock absorber, he said. The impact knocked him unconscious, but he came to long enough to make two phone calls to his hunting companions, John Daniels and Darreyl Duggar.

We remind our readers that all are presumed innocent until proven guilty. A 24-year-old Panama City resident was charged with DUI after a Liberty County Sheriffs Deputy responding to a reckless driving complaint witnessed her vehicle swerving across SR 20 while heading for Bristol at 12:30 a.m. Sunday. As Deputy Jonathan Gentry drove up behind the 2005 Toyota, he saw the westbound vehicle go into the oncoming lane, entering the eastbound shoulder of the road and continuing on before nearly hitting the side of Telogia Creek Bridge. The vehicle then veered back into the westbound lane. After he stopped the vehicle, the deputy approached the driver, Karen Williams, and noted the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage. His report stated that her speech was slurred and her eyes were bloodshot. When asked if she had been drinking, Williams replied that she had a couple. She then stated, I might have drank a little too much for my size. After failing a roadside sobriety test, she was taken into custody. Breath samples showed she was more than twice over the legal limit of .08, with readings of .207 and .188. She was charged with DUI. She was later released on $500 bond. kidding around but Duggar realized he wasnt. He was on his back and rolled over to try to get to his knees when he felt what he described as a bag of rocks crunching in his shoulder. Then I knew I was seriously hurt, he said. His friends called for help and went looking for him. He had parked about a half mile from the stand before walking into the woods. He said he was unconscious for the better part of the day. They arrived within about 30 or 40 minutes, put him in a truck and brought him to a highway, where an ambulance was waiting. He was taken to the University of Kentucky Trauma Center at Lexington, where he remained for two nights. The doctor told me I could have easily suffered brain damage, gotten paralyzed or died, he said. I really feel like the Lord was with me, he said, adding that he has much to be thankful for as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches. Ive got four little young uns that need a daddy. Im thankful Im going to still be around for that, he said. He was anxious to get back to his home in Hosford but the doctor would not allow him to the 12-hour drive to get him and bring him home, where he is now recuperating. He said hes doing well but whenever he starts to stand, hes quickly reminded of his injuries. Hes already started signing paperwork that needs his attention and said he will conduct first appearances by phone if necessary. Hes not sure yet if he will be able to swear in planned next week but hopes he will be able to. He said he was humbled by the love, prayers and concern shown since his accident. He said the trajectory of his fall changed when he hit his head, which probably spared him from life-threatening injury. That, along with the fact, that Im a hard-headed hunter.JUDGE HOSFORD continued from the front page W oman held on $22,500 bond following DUI arrest after crash ARREST REPORTS compiled by Journal Editor Teresa Eubanks BUMBLE BEE TRAPS$10.00AVAILABLE AT THE PANHANDLE PIONEER SETTLEMENTS POST OFFICE & GENERAL STOREReckless driving report results in DUI arrest early Sunday a.m.A Tallahassee woman who refused to give a breath sample to determine if was involved in a single-vehicle crash was charged with DUI last week.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 14, 2012 COMMENTARYCORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS Late Night LaughsA RECAP OF RECENT OBSER V ATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.In the recent presidential election, the Republican Party was introduced to the reality of a changing America. The days of white, predominately male, voters dominating presidential elections are over. The browning of America is relegating what was once a white majority to minority status. White voters as a group have been decreasing in size for many years. Today, approximately 72 percent of voters are white, down from 74 percent in 2008. According to the Associated Press, white men made up 34 percent of the electorate this year, down from 46 percent in 1972. Conversely, nonwhites made up 28 percent of the electorate this year, compared with 20 percent in 2000. In their angst over losing the presidency to President Obama, Republicans are licking their wounds and vowing a comeback. It wont happen if they depend on expanding an ever decreasing segment of societythe white voters. You cannot expand something that is getting smaller. No surprise here, but if the GOP is going to maintain any relevance in American society and politics, then the GOP needs a major makeover. That makeover means that they have to have some appeal for Hispanics, blacks and other nonwhites. Immigration comes to mind. Threatening to build fences and deport people who have been in the U.S. for decades wont sell. The U.S. cant round up and deport millions of people. So, work out a solution for those here without pay taxes and participate in society without looking over their shoulder. I know they broke the law by coming here without papers, but migrant workers are a major part of agriculture production in the southern states. There is a method for workers to come to the U.S. and work. Ask farmers in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. They need stoop labor to bring in the crops. My daughter manages a restaurant, and she hires foreigners for restaurant work. She deals with an authorized agent whose business it is to provide temporary workers. There are many Hispanics in the town where I live employed in the lawn mowing business. The Republican refrain of smaller government, less regulations and lower taxes is a worn out battle cry. Smaller government means shut down someone elses part of the government, not theirs. Conservatives in the area where I live go nuts if a politician suggests a penny tax increase for the school system or infrastructure projects. But, if the government tries to move any of the military units in this area, they collectively grab pitchforks and shotguns and head for Washington. Dont touch my part of the government, particularly the part that fuels the local economy. Hypocrisy comes to mind. Republicans need to stop commenting on womens healthcare. Stay out of their business. Nothing is more ludicrous than an old man discussing women and rape. Some things cant be solved. Abortion is one of those issues. Give it a rest. Put away the race card. Stop with the dog whistle racial comments. Im a southerner. Racism is alive and well in America, particularly in the South. In my view, its a compliment to the intelligence of the American people, at least to some of them, that the country the sense to re-elect him. I doubt that the GOP has a clue about how the younger generation views politics, politicians, race, gays and social issues. They arent conser vative in their views. They are color blind to race. They know who is gay, but it doesnt matter. They cant imagine politicians telling them how to care for their bodies. How do I know anything about the high school and college age people? I have an 18-year-old granddaughter who keeps me informed. She shares her views and her friends views on social issues with me. Im not judgmental, I just listen. Its enpresidential election just held. A death knell for the GOPThe head of the CIA and former General David Petraeus has resigned because of an extramarital affair. So guys, let that be a lesson for you. If the CIA director cant keep an affair secret, you dont have a chance. JAY LENOThe election has been over for days, but already theres a new survey that says Hillary Clin ton is favored to win the Iowa caucuses in 2016. Youd think they could have at least waited until we peeled the I voted stickers off our jackets. JIMMY KIMMELThe big story here in Los Angeles is the Lakers ing so bad that President Obama and Chris Christie toured the Staples Center today. JAY LENOA lot of people are still coming to grips with Mitt Romneys loss. It was reported that the morning after the election, Mitt Romneys family gathered to share a gallon of chocolate milk. In other words, they are taking it much harder than we thought. CONAN OBRIENThe Lakers are playing so bad that their ille gitimate kids now claim the Clippers are their real fathers. JAY LENOI heard an update from Con Edison, the electricity company. They said the Republicans now will be without power for the next four years. DA VID LETTERMAN a cab for Diane Sawyer... The rumor is that Diane Sawyer allegedly had been drinking on election night. In fact, today Mitt Romney called and said, You got any left? JAY LENOThousands of people complained on Twitter after Facebook went down for 60 seconds. It reminded me of the time my great-grandparents complained about having to make soup out of shoes during World War II. JIMMY F ALLONWhat is going on in Florida? They still havent at this point, Florida shouldnt even be allowed to vote for American Idol. JAY LENO Doctor No. Sean Connery looked so cool, kissing Ursula Andress on that lush tropical island. Not only did Connery play James Bond, but his chest hair doubled as the lush tropical island. CRAIG FERGUSONThe U.S. Postal Service announced they are expecting this years holiday season to be their busiest ever and also their slowest ever. Thats probably the only business in America that complains about being busy. JIMMY KIMMELI knew Obama was going to win. I knew this little secret. Use it next time there is an election and see if it doesnt work out. The guy who wins the presidential election is usually the guy who kills bin Laden. DA VID LETTERMANIm not buying any Christmas gifts until December 22 because that Mayan thing says the world is ending on the 21st. If it happens, I dont want to have wasted money on gifts. CRAIG FERGUSONI always wonder what the day after the election is like for the candidate who loses. You get so close to becoming the most powerful person in the world and just like that, you wake up hoping to get a call from Dancing With the Stars. JIMMY KIMMEL The younger generation arent conservative in their views. They are color blind to race. They know who is gay, but it doesnt matter. They cant imagine politicians telling them how to care for their bodies.

NOVEMBER 21, 2012 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY WASHINGTONMERRY-GO-ROUNDby Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Ideological coalitionsWASHINGTON As Pres. Obama and his legisla tive team scope out the new Congress that will return in January, they should think less in terms of party with like-minded lawmakers. Were edging closer to a parliamentary system where one party rarely gets a majority and a ruling coalition must be formed. Obama can do that across party lines on ideology instead of issue by issue, creating one coalition with Republicans who tend to be moderate on social issues and another coali and another with Republicans who share his world view on foreign policy and defense issues and still another on minority rights and immigration. Republicans are currently in disarray. Tea Party candi dates cost the GOP Senate seats in Missouri and Indiana. Republicans dislike and fear the Tea Party and there are some who are willing to stand up and say there is room for compromise in a democracy. Finding and identify ing those Republicans, particularly in the Senate, is the key to a successful second term legislatively for Obama. GOP obstructionism won them the House in 2010, but in 2012, voters punished the GOP for its extremism and this fact makes coalition-building a real possibility. Republicans minimize the two seats gained by the Democrats, but 55 seats is a lot closer to reaching a he can hold all the Democrats. Five is both a lot and a little a lot if you look at the composition of the Senate Republicans, most of whom are very conservative but on them from outside players, perhaps from New York Mayor Bloomberg, or from heightened public opinion that Obama can generate by using the bully pulpit. The House is a tougher challenge. Ten or 11 of the most ardent Tea Party members were defeated, but there are still plenty left and the House Republican caucus is still very conservative. Speaker Boehner has got to watch his back as Majority Leader Eric Cantor positions himself for a possible challenge. Still, looking at the numbers, if Boehner reached a so-called Grand Bargain with Obama Republican members to join the Democrats. This is admittedly fanciful since Boehner only likes to pass legislation with a majority of Republicans, but its possible at least in theory and should open up White House thinking to new and different ways to approach Congress. Its been 30 years since President Reagan worked successfully with a Democratic House led by Speaker Tip ONeill. It was a different era and partisan lines werent as hardened as they are today. But Reagan picked off like-minded Democrats, mainly in the South, who were dubbed boll weevils. Republicans who formed alliances with Democrats were called Gypsy Moths. The boll weevils are gone, retired or switched to the GOP and their descendants are the Blue Dog Democrats. Unfortunately there has been no obvious counterpart Perhaps the election and antipathy toward the Tea Party will change that.

NEWS FROM THE PEWSNovember declared Manatee Awareness Month in Floridacial state marine mammal, is an iconic American species, popular around the world. Governor Rick Scotts declaration of November as Manatee Awareness Month in Florida helps heighten public awareness about the importance of protecting Floridas endangered, beloved manatees. The proclamation is a time-honored tradition undertaken by Floridas the month of November as Manatee Awareness Month. Save the Manatee Club thanks Governor Scott for recognizing the importance of manatees by signing the proclamation, said Patrick Rose, Executive Director of Save the Manatee Club. Since our mission is to protect manatees and their habitat for future genera tions, we encourage everyone, especially those who enjoy being out on our Florida waters, to keep a close lookout for these amazing marine mammals, not just in November but throughout the year. November is also the time of year when manatees are on the move, making their way to important winter warm-water sites in Florida. Since they are a subtropical species, manatees cannot tolerate prolonged exposure to water temperatures below 68 degrees Fahrenheit. The Club reminds boaters that many seasonal manatee zones in Florida are in effect by early November and to pay close attention to posted signage indicating slow or idle speeds, as mana tees are often injured or killed by boat strikes and other human activities. Also, the boating community is urged to please keep their distance from migrating manatees or manatees congregated at warm-water sites during the winter months to avoid disturbing or harassing the manatees. Manatees are listed as endangered at the international, federal and state levels. The Club offers a variety of ways for the public in Florida to be directly involved with manatee protec tion. Free public awareness waterway signage, boating banners and decals, waterway cards and educational posters are produced by the Club. The bright yellow waterproof banner which boldly cautions, Please Slow: Manatees Below, can assist in warning boaters to slow down for manatees who may be present. Shoreline property signs and matching boat decals are also available, featuring the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions hotline number (1 (888) 404-3922) for reporting sick and injured manatees. Boater and diver awareness posters are also available to dive shops, marinas, businesses, visitor centers, classrooms and libraries. Family-friendly two-foot by three-foot outdoor signs are produced by the Club and distributed to state, municipal and county parks; marinas and other sites where human/manatee inter actions can be a problem. As we celebrate manatees during Manatee Aware ness Month, together lets continue to build better, safer lives for them, says Rose. For more information on endangered manatees, the Adopt-A-Manatee program, or to sign up for the Clubs free e-newsletter, visit the Clubs website at www.savethemanatee.org. Look for Manatee Protection Tips for Boaters on the Clubs website at www.savethemanatee.org/boatertips.htm. Earlier this year, Save the Manatee Club launched live manatee webcams at Blue Spring State Park, making it possible to watch manatees in real time during the winter months. Throughout other months of the year, the public can watch recorded video of manatees and live scenes of Florida wildlife and habitat within the spring run and adjacent St. Johns River. Watch at manatv.org.

The changes will make it easier for Florida veterans and veterans with disabil ities to enter the commer Governor Rick Scott said, We have a tremendous opportunity not only to give thanks to the men and women that served our nation so courageously, but also to provide them with more support so they can pur in Florida. This initiative will expand job opportunities for our veterans and get more folks involved industry, which is a winwin for Florida. The Commission adopted these changes at its September meeting and made a formal announce ment of the changes in a media event Nov. 9. I am excited to be extending this opportunity to the men and women who so bravely served our country, said Commissioner Charles W. Roberts III. Job creation and Floridas economy are priorities for everyone, including the FWC. Our hope is that more of Floridas veterans and veterans with disabilities, especially those who have recently returned from active duty, will be able to partake in the commercial seafood this opportunity. The changes will modify income requirements for many of Florida veterans seeking a commer cial restricted species endorsement, which allows commercial harvesters to that are designated as restricted. Spanish and king mackerel, flounder, shrimp, mahi mahi and several among the list of species that require a restrict ed species endorsement. Before, commercial harvesters attempting to qualify for a restricted species endorsement must hold a Florida Saltwater Products License, which is Floridas comlicense and be able to attribute $5,000 or 25 per cent of their total annual income during one of the past three years to sales of saltwater products. With the new changes in place, restricted species endorsement income requirements will be waived for one license year (July 1 June 30) for Florida veterans who were honor ably discharged between Sept. 11, 2001 and June 30, 2014. After June 30, 2014, this income-require ment waiver will continue to extend to Florida veter ans as long as they apply within four years of an honorable discharge. The one-license-year waiver also extends to all honorably discharged veterans with serviceconnected disabilities, regardless of when they were discharged. After the one-year waiver expires, veterans with serviceconnected disabilities will also have a reduced income requirement of $2,500 instead of $5,000. All other veterans must meet the $5,000 income requirement after the oneyear waiver expires. To qualify for these exemp tions, veterans must be partment of Veterans AfForces to have at least a 10-percent disability that is service-connected. I salute the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for making it easier for Flor idas veterans to become said Mike Prendergast, executive director of the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs. With more than 1.6 million veterans in Florida, includ ing nearly 260,000 with service-connected disabilities, this new oppor tunity provides an avenue to help them achieve their dreams after honorable military service.

Page 14 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 14, 2012To the editor: The United States Congress has deemed the week of Nov. 11 as Nurse Practitioner Week. It has been projected that in the next few will leave the workforce. This will worsen the physician shortage that already exists in our country. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recognizes that research confirms that nurse practitioners deliver safe, high-quality primary care and recommends that they should assume leadership roles as changes in the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) are enacted. The IOM also recommends that the restrictions currently placed upon nurse practitioners be removed so that they can provide the healthcare that they are In September of this year, the Florida stance to work against expanded scope issues of nurse practitioners. FMA does not want nurse practitioners to be able to Baker Act a suicidal patient or to write a prescription for cough syrup with codeine when you have pneumonia. This, in spite of a 2011 letter from the Federal Trade Commission asking that the Florida Legislation remove the "trade restrictions" placed upon its nurse practitioners. Most FMA members are physicians from large cities and/or South Florida who care little about healthcare issues in rural areas. These Florida physicians heavily contribute to the election campaigns of high ranking state law makers. If you have received healthcare in Calhoun County from the health department seen a nurse practitioner. We are fortunate that our access to healthcare is not solely dependent upon physician services. If you see your nurse practitioner this week, ask him/her any questions you may have about their profession and please support their continued effort to provide high quality, affordable healthcare.

Many parents do not realize how this is possible. ence of his/her parent most of the time and the child wants to follow in their footsteps or be nothing like them. This revolves around per sonal values. These include your moral beliefs; having good morals and ethics along with high self-esteem.

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorI wanted to go one more time, said Capt. Albert J. Lane, a 90-yearold veteran now living in Jackson County who came to see the Memphis Belle B-17 bomber that made a stop in Tallahassee Monday. Its been 65 years since he was in such an aircraft. He was just 22 25 missions over Germany. The one he rode in Monday was built in 1945, never saw combat and serves as a replica of the original Memphis Belle. It was used in the The original Memphis Belle was duty during WWII. Its also revered because despite substantial damage, all who flew the Memphis Belle returned from their missions without injury. The bomber is part of the non-profit Liberty Foundations 2012 Salute to Veterans Tour, which brings a true piece of history to over Tallahassees Veterans Day Parade. Unlike a group gathered for a tour of the aircraft at the Tallahassee Regional Airport, Lane wasnt there to learn something new. He was there to remember. And he said it all came back to him once he got on board. The engine sounded the same, the vibrations were the same and the fumes were the same, he said about riding in the exact kind of plane he went to war in. He was a nine-year-old farm boy in went to a one room school. I was walking to school one morning when I heard a noise. A plane with motor trouble was coming He ran to have a look, inspired by the many The Red Baron. A few years later, at the age of 15, he was an FFA member showing a jersey heifer at the Mason County Fair. Outside cut a path down through it and there was a Barnstormer an open cockpit airplane giving rides, he said. He and a buddy two of us got in the open cockpit, the pilot took off, circled the fairgrounds ride in an airplane. Just a few years later, he was behind the controls of a B-17 bomber. He said hes alive today because of the actions of four Tuskeegee Airmen who came to his rescue. I was shot out of formation over Berlin, he said. My oxygen was shot out and I had one engine. He had to make a quick descent. I was at 32,000 feet; you have to get down to 15,000 feet in two minutes with no oxygen, he said. The German boys had twin engine jets above us that could see when we had a cripple come out of formation. One came in on my left wing. He slowed down and looked at me. I looked at him. He said the pilot started chased him away. The Tuskeegee Airmen saved my life, he said. Widowed in 2007, he remains at the home he shared with his late wife in Greenwood. Mondays adventure took a toll on him but he enjoyed it, he said. My body at 90 isnt quite what it was at 22. I got home, sat down, took two aspirin and never moved for four hours, he laughed. And then he added, It was the ride of a lifetime.Ninety-year-old veteran enjoys one more rideThe Memphis Belle comes to Tallahassee on national tour Capt. Albert J.

They enjoyed the experience, which Shoemake said makes you realize how harsh conditions were for the crew in WW II. There were no creature comforts, he said after exploring the aircraft. Its built for battle. It was rough and noisy, open to the elements and you can smell the exhaust. But once in the air, it was a smooth ride. There was no rattling or bumping. He said the aircrafts large balloon tires kind of gave them a bounce when it landed. Its a great experience to be able to learn what folks who fought in WW II experienced, he said.

Lady Dawgs heading to stateThe Liberty County Girls Volleyball team will be loading up on the bus Wednesday to start their trip to Kissimmee, where they will If we win one more, well play for the state championship, said Coach Jennifer Sewell. Its the second time in our school history for the girls. The Lady Dawgs earned that right by beat ing Sneads in three straight games Saturday in Bristol, with scores of 25-21; 25-21 and 25-17.

We had the best three days of practice this week, Sewell said. They realized their hard work is paying off. Some of the kids have been playing four years, she said. Everybody knew the whole time of how they were capable of it. Saturday, the girls were focused and ready to play. Sewell admits their opponent that day was a little cocky. They didnt think we were going to three. She said theyre counting on the leader ABOVE: Carly Sapp (#3) dives for the ball. RIGHT: Bulldog Ashley Smith (#23) returns the ball to Sneads.

In the U.S., about half of the countrys drinking water comes from groundwater sources. Many rural areas derive all of their drinking water from groundwater, which also provides 40 percent of the irrigation needs of American farmers. While underground aquifers may at one point have seemed limitless, huge demand for water (especially in arid areas like the Southwest) means that groundwater reserves are precious and need to be carefully managed with conservation in mind. Also, groundwater is easily contaminated by any number of common man-made products like gasoline, oil, road salts, pesticides, fertil izers and other chemicals. tralizedlocal and regional water authorities manage supplies for municipalities and counties around the countrybut oversight comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as mandated by the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act. Enacted in 1972, the Clean Water Act addresses water pollution in general and requires everyone, but especially large water users including large industrial and agricultural operations, to non-polluting manner. Meanwhile, 1974s Safe Drinking Water Act requires the EPA to set standards for drinking water quality that the 150,000 public water entities across the country must meet. Third party laboratories provide detailed analyses to ensure that local supplies live up to the EPAs expectations. These laws work together to keep groundwater supplies safe, but environmentalists would like to see both strengthened substantially in the face of drought-inducing global warming and other threats. While regulation and enforcement of industry and agriculture are important for protecting our limited groundwater supplies, consumers also must play a role. The Groundwater Foundation, a Nebraska-based nonensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations, suggests taking short showers, shutting off the faucet while brushing teeth and shaving, running full loads of dishes and laundry, checking for leaky faucets only when necessary. Likewise, the group advocates that consumers recycle used motor oils, limit the amount of fertilizer and pesticides used on plants, lawns and gar dens, and generally reduce household chemical use. And leftover chemicals should be disposed of at hazardous com), not down the drain or into the gutter. Another way to help is to initiate a Source Water Protection process, which involves locating local groundwater sources and identifying ways to protect and conserve them. Anyone interested in doing so can download the Groundwater Foundations free Source Water Assess ment and Protection Workshop Guide, which has detailed information about a number of source water protection strategies and additional information on areas where the Safe Drinking Water Act and Clean Water Act intersect. of Groundwater and Drinking Water, which considers deliberating land use and water quality issues.What is the Burrowing Owl Conservation Network and why is it so important to put so much effort into saving one species? -Ginny Bateman, Portland, ORWestern burrowing owls (Athene cunicularia) are tiny, long-legged members of the owl family, native to the Americas and preferring open landscapes where they can dig new holes or use existing ones (such as abandoned prairie dog, skunk or armadillo homes) to nest and rear their young. Unlike most other owl species, these small but charismatic birds are more often seen out and about during daylight hours, but they are most active and do their primary feeding at night, preferring a diet of small rodents and large insects. Once a common species in California and across North America, the Western burrowing owl has become a rarer and rarer sight over the last three decades given habitat loss and other environmental perils the bird faces. Biologists consider the bird an indicator of wider ecosystem health, so if its population numbers are healthy then local ecosystems are likely thriving. But these days the bird is endangered in Canada and threatened in Mexico, is a state endangered species in Colorado, and is considered a species of special concern in Florida and most of the western U.S. It is also listed on the International Union for Conservation of Natures (IUCNs) international Red List of endangered and threatened species (albeit as a species of Least Concern in comparison with others in more dire straits). A group of dedicated birders, conservationists, biologists and concerned citizens in San Franciscos East Bay came together to protect dwindling burrowing owl populations locally but ended up creating a movement that spans the entire North American continent. Their group, the Burrowing Owl Conservation Network (BOCN) believes that burrowing owls are vital to maintaining healthy, functioning ecosystems, and as such is working on several fronts to help protect habitat and reverse the animals population slide. First and foremost, BOCN works to conserve habitat for burrowing owls in California and beyond, including rowing owl colonies while larger ecosystem restoration efforts are underway. Teaching children and communities about ways they can help protect and improve burrowing owl habitat is another important part of BOCNs work. Other ways the group helps the owls is by advocat ing for legislation and policy changes that encourage conservation of habitat, networking with like-minded laboratory research to increase understanding about how to help burrowing owls and create habitat conditions ideal for their survival. The fact that burrowing owl populations in other parts of the world are rebounding gives hope to BOCN and other wildlife advocates and environmentalists. The birds are common and widespread in Central and South parks in urban areas. Whether the birds can replicate their success in Latin America up north remains to be seen. As for what readers can do to help, learning about the behavior, biology and habitat needs of wild animals like the burrowing owl is a sure way to develop respect for natures inhabitants and a lifelong willingness to protect them. And nothing beats witnessing burrowing owls go about their rounds. Seeing them in the wild is enough to convince anyone

Chipola espite how it may seem to those outside the South, sucker fishing is only about 80 percent as ridiculous as a sucker and people do catch and eat them. But beyond that, yep, its pretty ridiculous. First, some background: Suckers bottom of rivers, using their snouts to eat. In the winter, they travel up small, gravel-bottom streams and lay their eggs among the rocks. Then they swim back into the river like deadbeat parents, leaving their young to fend for themselves. I assume they do this so they dont accidentally eat their own eggs which, come to think of it, probably is worse than abandoning them. its start. I assume, way back when, some smart soul saw all upstream and said to himself, Self, theres only one way those the river. And with that, I envision him standing there for days, waiting for them to swim back by so he could grab them with his bare hands. At some point, Im sure a much smarter person came up with the idea of using a piece of chicken wire to stop them from getting into the river and another to keep them from going back upstream. Traditionally, when the suckers were running, a group of men (because women were usually too smart for this sort of thing) would gather at the creek If necessary, young boys could be sent in the ice-cold water and fetch them up by hand. (Because boys were dumb and cooked and eaten on the spot, but only after cleaning and gashing them. In addition to being ugly, suckers are also bony. So much so that the best way to cook them is to leave the bones in and make diagonal cuts through them. Deep and all. hold much fascination for me. That time of year, I was thoroughly focused on hunting and have the grades to prove it. On the other hand, it was something to do in Blountstown on a Saturday night in winter. So occasionally Gary Wayne Purvis, Brad Guilford and I would go after them the hard way by wandering around Fox and Wildcat creeks with flashlights, trying to gig them. This of course always ended with us coming home late, soaking wet and why wouldnt you push each other into freezing water in the middle of the woods at midnight?) One night, however, G.W. and I set out to do it up right. We camped out on the version of chicken wire across the creek. A novice might have mistaken this for a gill net, but I can assure you, based on a discussion with my lawyer, that it was chicken wire with a lead line along the bottom and a cork line across the top. In fact, it remains the most effective chicken wire Ive That night, we got a least a dozen big suckers, but there were only two of us and we didnt Plus, we had to go out that night because there was remote possibility of meeting girls. The next day, we hunted for a while, packed our stuff and went home with a cooler full of uncleaned suckers. G.W. had generously decided I should take them, in part because he had done a big sucker cookout the weekend before, but mostly because I think he knew what was going to happen next. When I got home, I brought the ice chest to the door to show my father. What should I do with them? I asked (with no small amount of pride in my voice.) Daddy looked in the cooler at the dayright back there in the woods. What?!?! I couldnt believe it. Thats when Daddy explained that suckers are only okay under the best circumstances right out of the water and straight into the grease. They go from edible to nasty with every minute that passes after that. He said the real reason people ate suckers is because shellcrackers and such arent usually biting and that was about the best option available. Although he didnt mention it, I suspect that it also was a good excuse drink liquor and laugh at your offspring splashing around in freezing cold water hands. As I look back on it, fishing for suckers is a pretty good description of the whole exercise. The trick is not to be the sucker.
