Its going to be a good change, says Liberty County Sheriff-Elect Nick Finch, 50, of Bristol, who is preparing to take on the countys top law enforcement position in early January after defeating incumbent Sheriff Donnie Conyers in the Nov. 6 General Election. At the top of his list is something sorely needs: A personnel policy. Were going to immediately institute policies and procedures, he said. He will start by using the model presented on the Florida Sheriffs Association website. Hes not ready to name his staff but acknowledged, Im still trying to close a few holes in the work chart. One thing he is certain of is that he will add a couple more deputies and make some salary changes. Salaries for those at the bottom of the pay scale will go up; salaries for those at the top will go down. Ill start road deputies at $30,000 a year, he said, noting that some are still making only $25,000 a year. Instead of having two majors making $65,000 each, Ill have two captains as chief deputies, who will be paid around $45,000 a year, he said. He feels that by shifting those salaries, he can afford to fund two more deputy positions. He wants to seek out any available funding that can help the county, explaining, Were one of the poorest counties in the state. I know theres grant money out there. If were not asking for it, other people will. Hes been in law enforcement for 30 years in a range of positions both military and civilian, but theres one thing hes very aware of: Ive never been a sheriff. Hes already met with the staff of the Florida Sheriffs Association and is making full use of the assistance available from their support staff. On Dec. 2, he will join other newly-elected sheriffs from around the state for a weeklong sheriffs school in Tallahassee.Sheriff-Elect ready to make some changes in Liberty Co.

Ken Purvis, 63, of Lake Talquin was traveling west on SR 20 at 1:15 p.m. and was about to turn Juvenile Development when his UPS truck was hit from behind. The impact sent the 2009 freight truck across the eastbound lane, into the south ditch and then head-on into an oak tree. I was slowing down but hadnt stopped, said Purvis. He hit me square in the back of my truck, knocked me about 50 yards and pushed me into a tree. Sammy Hanna, 48, of Hosford was at the wheel of the 2011 Ford F-250 that collided with the UPS truck.

You cant make this stuff up. President Obama gets re-elected, and it is the end of the world for some people, literally. I read in the news media that a fellow in Key West killed himself because Obama was re-elected. I was working with a fellow who had a T-Hangar for sale at the local airport. He told me that the deal fell through when the buyer backed out of the deal because Obama was re-elected. The owner of Papa Johns Pizza franchises is in a dither saying that the price of pizza is going up because cials did an analysis of the effect of Obamacare on the price of Papa Johns pizzas and concluded that it was about four cents per pizza. All of this consternation from a man who gives away thousands of pizzas during the Super Bowl event. All of this angst from a man in a cut-throat fast food business that routinely discounts the price of pizzas by a couple of dollars in order to increase sales volume. Some businesses, particularly restaurants, threaten to add an Obama fee to the meal ticket. This from an industry that legally pays servers $4.65 an hour plus tips. When you leave that 50-cent tip for a party of eight, remember that that man or woman who lugged your pasta to the table doesnt even make minimum wage. But its not just corporate America that is in high dungeon about the Obama re-election. Sore loser Republicans like Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham are doing their dead level best to create a Benghazi conspiracy. These two political grumps are aided in grand style by Fox News, which has been stir ring the Benghazi pot since the event occurred. McCain is the epitome of a sore loser. Obama trounced McCain in the 2008 presidential election. Like the Republican elephant that he is, McCain never forgives or forgets. McCain has focused his idiotic anger against the U.S. ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice. His basic complaint is that she was lying to the public to cover up some sort of malfeasance by the Obama administra tion. McCain has vowed to block this womans nomination as Secretary of State, should that occur. McCain has trashed this woman on all the talk shows. But, hypocrite that he is, McCain defended President Bushs Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice when she was hawking the weapons of mass destruction lie to justify the Iraq War. In my view, McCain has zero credibility when he opens his mouth and trash talks anything and anyone with political views to the left of the right-wing extrem ists that have doomed his party to the political trash heap. McCain picked Sarah Palin to be a vice president, a person that would have become president if McCain had been elected then become incapacitated because of his age. It turns out that selecting Palin was the dumbest thing that he could have done, and now, he is trash talking the U.S ambassador to the UN who has a Ph.D. Compare that to Palin. Its not just Senator McCain who is having problems adjusting to Obamas re-election. The local right-wingers in my area are also in a dither. One fellow wrote to the newspaper that re-electing Obama was a tragedy on the order of 9/11. Thousands of people have signed petitions to secede from the Union. What could possibly go wrong with that? Of course, most Americans dont know much about history, but someone might tell these morons that the issue of secession was settled at Appomattox in 1865. This belief that we the people can do whatever we doms of ignorant people is foolish. The right-wingers and survivalists have believed for years that the government is coming after them. They will be right if anyone, any group or any governor and legislature Ive often written that the common sense of the American people is a cornerstone of American Democracy. In my view, the contribution of basic Americans to the larger cause of a democratic society is a key Unlike other societies, America is not a homogeneous people. Far from it, we are a multicultural society. Thats the rub for white people which are quickly becoming the minority in a society quickly becoming a brown, black and nonwhite society. This demographic and cultural change is and will continue to be a serious challenge to American Democracy. Can the American people adapt to these changes? If people persist with the We want to secede because we dont like all those black, brown and nonwhite people, then Americas great experiment in democracy will come to an end. Historically, that is what happens to nation states unable to agree on basic principles and how to collec tively govern themselves. Think about it.

During the holiday season, donors businesses and individuals alike are often overwhelmed with requests for assistance, said Norman Wright, President/CEO of your BBB Northwest Florida.

Never in our wildest imaginations did we believe that literally thousands of households would be assisted! We knew it would be good, but it has been incredible! Almost every entity in the area has made our success possible. Every school, most civic organizations, most churches, businesses and hundreds of individuals have all contributed to the ministry center. Their gifts came in the form of money, clothing, food, furniture and lots of stuff. Your generous gifts have resulted in over 10,000 households being assisted with almost 325,000 lbs. of food. We have paid light bills, rent, gas for over 600 clients. A very special thanks for our two food stores, The Piggly Wiggly and Harveys. No words can be found to express our thanks for their unusually huge donations and assistance. We have received tons of foods from Second Harvest and Farm Share. Mr. Peaveys donation of 10 lb. chicken bags here at Thanksgiving is most appreciated. We have a great work force, over 160 volunteers have donated their time and talents in three years time. Scores of folks have given us many hours of community service. To say the least, we are grateful to our God and to all the residents of Calhoun and Liberty counties for making this ministry possible. For those receiving the physical and spiritual ministries of the ministry center, they are especially thankful.

Wild Bill ReederSept. 13, 1949 Nov. 13, 2011 My father was a big part of my life, he was also very important and special to me. He was mostly known as Wild Bill. Most of us know why he was called that. No, he wasnt perfect, nowhere near perfect at that, but then again who is? He made tons of mistakes in his life, but what doesnt break you makes you stronger. When me and him would talk he would give me his wisdom and pretty much say Dont be me when I was your age growing up. Today isnt a day of tears and sorrow. But, the remembrance of the great man and daddy, Bill Reeder. This isnt the end, only the beginning. Hopefully we all know he is in a better place now with his two loving sons, Tait and Billy, his own father, W.C. Reed er, and his favorite Aunt Jerry. I love you, daddy, and I will miss you deeply. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart. P.S. I love you daddy, and I miss you so much!

She is shown above seated next to Coach Jennifer Sewell. At far right is her mother, Beverly Sapp. Her grandmother is shown seated at far left. Assistant Coaches Paul Sikes and Jeremiah Johnson are shown in back. SHARON AUSTIN PHOTO LCHSs Carly Sapp signs Softball ScholarshipAfter the pickup hit the truck, it went across the road into the eastbound lane, bumped a tree and rolled to a stop, according to FHP Trooper Jason King. Kings report noted that Purvis had activated his left turn signal before the collision and there were no signs that Hanna had attempted to use his brakes. Hanna, who broke his leg and bruised his ribs in last weeks crash, remained at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital Monday afternoon. Im all bruised up but Im doing all right, he said. He did not know when he would be released. He was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. Purvis was taken to Capital Regional Medical Center, where he received 15 stitches to close a gash on his left leg. He underwent CT scans as doctors checked out a lump on the back of his head and bruising to his ribs. He was treated and released that afternoon. I was real lucky, said Purvis, who said he would have been thrown from the truck had he not been wearing his seatbelt. He said after impact, his seat went back and he hit his head on the bulkhead wall that separates the packages from the cab of the truck. He said he believed he was unconscious for a few seconds and when he came to, I saw the oak tree coming at me. He tried to hit his brakes, But my feet were in the air. He said this was only his second accident in his 31 year career as a UPS driver. He returned to light duty Monday and said he expected to be back on his route in Liberty County Tuesday. Damages to the UPS truck were said to be around $10,000. The pickups damages were estimated at $12,000. Charges are pending. Both the front and the back of the UPS truck were damaged in the collision. Another UPS truck soon arrived at the scene and transferred the remaining packages from the wreckage and delivered them.

Photo by Paul Buchanan/SuwanneeSports.com Known as the New Sheriffs Institute, the training program will cover a wide range of subjects, including budget management, staff development, the sheriffs role in the legislative process and jail services. One session, called Keeping the Tarnish off the Scheduled speakers will include the FDLE Commissioner, Florida Ethics Commission assistant general council, the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission and the Department of Corrections Deputy Secretary, along with several sheriffs who will serve as presenters as well as panelists. I believe the more that people see what were going to do, the more theyre going to be pleased, he said. He said he knows it will take awhile, but, I need to get started to see what I have and what I will need. Former Liberty County Sheriffs Deputy Nick Finch chose to run with no party position to face the winner of the Aug. 14 Primary in this years sheriffs race. Three candidates split the vote in the primary. Incumbent Donnie Conyers got over 35 percent of the vote, followed by Eddie Joe White with just over 34 percent and Henry Hamlin with nearly 30 percent. The race was not quite as close in the General Election, where after the absentees were counted Finch had 181 more votes than his former boss, giving him just over 52 percent of the vote to Conyers 47 percent. Of Floridas 67 counties, Finch was only one of four candidates who beat an incumbent sheriff during the recent election. Its also believed that he is Liberty elected without running as a Democrat. Although he registered to vote as a Republican in 2001, Finch changed his in 2012, according to Liberty County Elections Supervisor Marcia Wood. Candidates can remain registered with the party of their choice she explained. Liberty County has 4,410 registered voters and of that number, 3,329 cast their ballot in the General Election.

Its going to be a good change, says Liberty County Sheriff-Elect Nick Finch, 50, of Bristol, who is preparing to take on the countys top law enforcement position in early January after defeating incumbent Sheriff Donnie Conyers in the Nov. 6 General Election. At the top of his list is something sorely needs: A personnel policy. Were going to immediately institute policies and procedures, he said. He will start by using the model presented on the Florida Sheriffs Association website. Hes not ready to name his staff but acknowledged, Im still trying to close a few holes in the work chart. One thing he is certain of is that he will add a couple more deputies and make some salary changes. Salaries for those at the bottom of the pay scale will go up; salaries for those at the top will go down. Ill start road deputies at $30,000 a year, he said, noting that some are still making only $25,000 a year. Instead of having two majors making $65,000 each, Ill have two captains as chief deputies, who will be paid around $45,000 a year, he said. He feels that by shifting those salaries, he can afford to fund two more deputy positions. He wants to seek out any available funding that can help the county, explaining, Were one of the poorest counties in the state. I know theres grant money out there. If were not asking for it, other people will. Hes been in law enforcement for 30 years in a range of positions both military and civilian, but theres one thing hes very aware of: Ive never been a sheriff. Hes already met with the staff of the Florida Sheriffs Association and is making full use of the assistance available from their support staff. On Dec. 2, he will join other newly-elected sheriffs from around the state for a weeklong sheriffs school in Tallahassee.Sheriff-EElect ready to make some changes in Liberty Co.

You cant make this stuff up. President Obama gets re-elected, and it is the end of the world for some people, literally. I read in the news media that a fellow in Key West killed himself because Obama was re-elected. I was working with a fellow who had a T-Hangar for sale at the local airport. He told me that the deal fell through when the buyer backed out of the deal because Obama was re-elected. The owner of Papa Johns Pizza franchises is in a dither saying that the price of pizza is going up because cials did an analysis of the effect of Obamacare on the price of Papa Johns pizzas and concluded that it was about four cents per pizza. All of this consternation from a man who gives away thousands of pizzas during the Super Bowl event. All of this angst from a man in a cut-throat fast food business that routinely discounts the price of pizzas by a couple of dollars in order to increase sales volume. Some businesses, particularly restaurants, threaten to add an Obama fee to the meal ticket. This from an industry that legally pays servers $4.65 an hour plus tips. When you leave that 50-cent tip for a party of eight, remember that that man or woman who lugged your pasta to the table doesnt even make minimum wage. But its not just corporate America that is in high dungeon about the Obama re-election. Sore loser Republicans like Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham are doing their dead level best to create a Benghazi conspiracy. These two political grumps are aided in grand style by Fox News, which has been stirring the Benghazi pot since the event occurred. McCain is the epitome of a sore loser. Obama trounced McCain in the 2008 presidential election. Like the Republican elephant that he is, McCain never forgives or forgets. McCain has focused his idiotic anger against the U.S. ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice. His basic complaint is that she was lying to the public to cover up some sort of malfeasance by the Obama administration. McCain has vowed to block this womans nomination as Secretary of State, should that occur. McCain has trashed this woman on all the talk shows. But, hypocrite that he is, McCain defended President Bushs Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice when she was hawking the weapons of mass destruction lie to justify the Iraq War. In my view, McCain has zero credibility when he opens his mouth and trash talks anything and anyone with political views to the left of the right-wing extremists that have doomed his party to the political trash heap. McCain picked Sarah Palin to be a vice president, a person that would have become president if McCain had been elected then become incapacitated because of his age. It turns out that selecting Palin was the dumbest thing that he could have done, and now, he is trash talking the U.S ambassador to the UN who has a Ph.D. Compare that to Palin. Its not just Senator McCain who is having problems adjusting to Obamas re-election. The local right-wingers in my area are also in a dither. One fellow wrote to the newspaper that re-electing Obama was a tragedy on the order of 9/11. Thousands of people have signed petitions to secede from the Union. What could possibly go wrong with that? Of course, most Americans dont know much about history, but someone might tell these morons that the issue of secession was settled at Appomattox in 1865. This belief that we the people can do whatever we doms of ignorant people is foolish. The right-wingers and survivalists have believed for years that the government is coming after them. They will be right if anyone, any group or any governor and legislature Ive often written that the common sense of the American people is a cornerstone of American Democracy. In my view, the contribution of basic Americans to the larger cause of a democratic society is a key Unlike other societies, America is not a homogeneous people. Far from it, we are a multicultural society. Thats the rub for white people which are quickly becoming the minority in a society quickly becoming a brown, black and nonwhite society. This demographic and cultural change is and will continue to be a serious challenge to American Democracy. Can the American people adapt to these changes? If people persist with the We want to secede because we dont like all those black, brown and nonwhite people, then Americas great experiment in democracy will come to an end. Historically, that is what happens to nation states unable to agree on basic principles and how to collectively govern themselves. Think about it.

Never in our wildest imaginations did we believe that literally thousands of households would be assisted! We knew it would be good, but it has been incredible! Almost every entity in the area has made our success possible. Every school, most civic organizations, most churches, businesses and hundreds of individuals have all contributed to the ministry center. Their gifts came in the form of money, clothing, food, furniture and lots of stuff. Your generous gifts have resulted in over 10,000 households being assisted with almost 325,000 lbs. of food. We have paid light bills, rent, gas for over 600 clients. A very special thanks for our two food stores, The Piggly Wiggly and Harveys. No words can be found to express our thanks for their unusually huge donations and assistance. We have received tons of foods from Second Harvest and Farm Share. Mr. Peaveys donation of 10 lb. chicken bags here at Thanksgiving is most appreciated. We have a great work force, over 160 volunteers have donated their time and talents in three years time. Scores of folks have given us many hours of community service. To say the least, we are grateful to our God and to all the residents of Calhoun and Liberty counties for making this ministry possible. For those receiving the physical and spiritual ministries of the ministry center, they are especially thankful.

Wild BBill RReederSept. 13, 1949 Nov. 13, 2011 My father was a big part of my life, he was also very important and special to me. He was mostly known as Wild Bill. Most of us know why he was called that. No, he wasnt perfect, nowhere near perfect at that, but then again who is? He made tons of mistakes in his life, but what doesnt break you makes you stronger. When me and him would talk he would give me his wisdom and pretty much say Dont be me when I was your age growing up. Today isnt a day of tears and sorrow. But, the remembrance of the great man and daddy, Bill Reeder. This isnt the end, only the beginning. Hopefully we all know he is in a better place now with his two loving sons, Tait and Billy, his own father, W.C. Reeder, and his favorite Aunt Jerry. I love you, daddy, and I will miss you deeply. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart. P.S. I love you daddy, and I miss you so much!

She is shown above seated next to Coach Jennifer Sewell. At far right is her mother, Beverly Sapp. Her grandmother is shown seated at far left. Assistant Coaches Paul Sikes and Jeremiah Johnson are shown in back. SHARON AUSTIN PHOTO LCHSs Carly Sapp signs Softball ScholarshipAfter the pickup hit the truck, it went across the road into the eastbound lane, bumped a tree and rolled to a stop, according to FHP Trooper Jason King. Kings report noted that Purvis had activated his left turn signal before the collision and there were no signs that Hanna had attempted to use his brakes. Hanna, who broke his leg and bruised his ribs in last weeks crash, remained at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital Monday afternoon. Im all bruised up but Im doing all right, he said. He did not know when he would be released. He was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. Purvis was taken to Capital Regional Medical Center, where he received 15 stitches to close a gash on his left leg. He underwent CT scans as doctors checked out a lump on the back of his head and bruising to his ribs. He was treated and released that afternoon. I was real lucky, said Purvis, who said he would have been thrown from the truck had he not been wearing his seatbelt. He said after impact, his seat went back and he hit his head on the bulkhead wall that separates the packages from the cab of the truck. He said he believed he was unconscious for a few seconds and when he came to, I saw the oak tree coming at me. He tried to hit his brakes, But my feet were in the air. He said this was only his second accident in his 31 year career as a UPS driver. He returned to light duty Monday and said he expected to be back on his route in Liberty County Tuesday. Damages to the UPS truck were said to be around $10,000. The pickups damages were estimated at $12,000. Charges are pending. Both the front and the back of the UPS truck were damaged in the collision. Another UPS truck soon arrived at the scene and transferred the remaining packages from the wreckage and delivered them.

I believe the more that people see what were going to do, the more theyre going to be pleased, he said. He said he knows it will take awhile, but, I need to get started to see what I have and what I will need. Former Liberty County Sheriffs Deputy Nick Finch chose to run with no party position to face the winner of the Aug. 14 Primary in this years sheriffs race. Three candidates split the vote in the primary. Incumbent Donnie Conyers got over 35 percent of the vote, followed by Eddie Joe White with just over 34 percent and Henry Hamlin with nearly 30 percent. The race was not quite as close in the General Election, where after the absentees were counted Finch had 181 more votes than his former boss, giving him just over 52 percent of the vote to Conyers 47 percent. Of Floridas 67 counties, Finch was only one of four candidates who beat an incumbent sheriff during the recent election. Its also believed that he is Liberty elected without running as a Democrat. Although he registered to vote as a Republican in 2001, Finch changed his in 2012, according to Liberty County Elections Supervisor Marcia Wood. Candidates can remain registered with the party of their choice she explained. Liberty County has 4,410 registered voters and of that number, 3,329 cast their ballot in the General Election.
