Your dyed in the wool, bug in the rug, tea party Republican has rejected President Obama's offer and the Senate's already passed bill to protect average, middle class families from big tax increases. He has even rejected Speaker Boehner's socalled "Plan B" -a plan to protect everyone earning up to $1 million this coming year from the automatic tax increase. So, while you are paying more taxes thanks to Congressman Souther land, you may be able earner in your neighbor hood who owes Steve a big favor. Good luck with that. In Calhoun County, of the 4,796 households, census records show only 40 have earnings over $200,000. In Liberty County, of the 2,142 households, only 21 earn over $200,000. If you were hoping that the 2013 version of Southerland would be new and improved unlike the 2010 proud Tea Party edition of the past, don't hold your breath. What about all of Steve's professed, elec tion season concerns for balancing the budget and safeguarding medi care? Remember Steve's attacks on President Obama for allegedly cutting $716 billion from Medicare? Listen carefully for any meaningful plan to balance the budget. You On Thursday Decem ber 20, Steve "Ebenezer" Southerland voted to eliminate meals on wheels for seniors and food for hungry children. Still, even these cuts would amount to about $30 billion of an annual 1 trillion dollar annual percent of the problem. Welfare and food stamps may occupy 80% of Republican talk ing points, but they still amount to less than 2% of the budget. Well, maybe, you say he'll moderate his views on revenue and agree to go back to a marginal rate of 39.6% from 35% on income over $250,000. Good luck with that. Some of those 230 Republican congressmen who signed the pledge last session may try to wiggle out of their Grover Norquist anti-tax pledge, but not Steve. The Norquist ring is still If you're looking for 20 or so moderate Republican congressmen who are willing to balance increases in taxes with cuts in spending, don't count on Steve. Last time I saw him he was strapping himself in a barrel and getting cal cliff. Sadly, he'll try to take us with him, for at least two more years. Alvin Peters Dear editor, Last weeks Cox Corner article began with This piece is about mass murder, not gun ownership. Why is it then, that paragraphs 3 8 never mention mass murder again ? Those six paragraphs contain a mixture of mainly the truth, with a smattering of misinformation thrown in. In the few years in which I have read Coxs column, it has become apparent to me that this is quite often his preferred style of writing. It can be compared to rat poison: full of very good things that appeal to the rat and lure him into eating the mixture, without ever realiz ing that they are also ingesting toxins that will end the rats life. In the end, Coxs article conto mass murder in some form. That leaves 13 paragraphs that are about something else. Hmmmmm............ what could that be? Oh my, it seems that they are mostly about what he says his article is NOT about............. gun ownership and gun control. First of all, allow me to introduce two concepts that people like Cox dont understand: 1.) The 2nd Amendment is NOT in the Bill of Needs it is in the Bill of RIGHTS. 2.) Regardless of whether we even have a Bill of Rights, speevery person on the face of the earth has the simple God-given right of self-defense. Mr. Cox suggests that The ments were designed to protect the colonists against foreign armies. This is absolutely true. However, it is here that Mr. Cox dose of rat poison. The part he conveniently leaves out is that the 2nd Amendment was spethe colonists were able to over throw an out of control or tyrannical government. Thomas Jefferson said, What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms. Thomas Jefferson to James Madison. Mr. Cox also suggests that King Hussein Obama and the realm would NEVER attempt to hiding under a rock? No, just lying like he always does (see rat poison above). Every gun control law ever enacted and every gun-free zone has done NOTHING to safeguard the individuals murdered by guns. Oh.......did he mention, knives, clubs, swords, spears etc.? EVERY incident of these recent mass-murder Columbinetype situations (with the exception of the Gabrielle Giffords incident) has occured in places where the government has created a per fectly safe environment FOR THE GUNMAN Lastly, Mr. Cox states that he doesnt need a .50 caliber sniper the military. As a veteran, let me state for the record that that is the last place I would want to see Mr. Cox. There are too many social engineering progressives in the military already.

Awarding college credit to our military personnel and veterans for knowledge they gained while serving our country will put them one step closer to achieving their employment goals, said Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. It is a simple way of showing our for our country and we owe it to them to help get them back into the workforce. Gayle Harrell, spoke at Indian River State College last month about the legislation. Unemployment among veterans the opportunity to come back, use the skills they have in the military and get with their lives to become employees. The Florida College System is proud to provide education, job-training and re-training to active duty military and veterans and we recognize their contributions to our country and college campuses. said Randy Hanna, chancellor of the Florida College System. Our colleges are already familiar with reviewing military training programs and awarding college credit, so this rule is reinforcing and enhancing current practices. allowing colleges to award credit for military training, said Ailbe Astor, a military veteran and now Coordinator of Veteran Student Affairs for Hillsborough Community College. Having experienced this process as a student veteran and through my involvement with the student veteran population, I understand what it is like to transition from servicemember to student. Awarding college credit for military service validates the training we receive while in uniform and also helps us work toward the goal of furthering our education once we are out of uniform.

Organic foods are not merely a passing trend. According to statistics tracking food purchases, more consumers are embracing organic foods. Whole Foods' "Food Shopping Trend Tracker Survey," which was conducted online by Harris Interactive between August 3 and August 7, 2012, indicated nearly three out of four Americans (73 percent) do not want to compromise on the food they buy, despite what foods costs at the store. Seventy-one percent of survey participants said they prefer natural and organic foods over conventional foods, particularly if the prices are comparable. Nearly 27 percent of shoppers routinely devote more than 25 percent of their grocery store budgets to organic products, and nearly half are willing to pay higher prices for locally produced foods. Quality, selection and freshness of foods are the things driving many people to purchase organic and natural food items.

Sandy Hook special education teacher died with her arms around her studentAnne Marie Murphy was 52 years old, the mother of Kelly, Colleen, Paige and Thomas, as well as the wife of Mike. Her 86-year-old mother, Alice McGowan, herself, the mother of seven, said straightforwardly: She was a very good daughter, a good mother, a good wife. But the reason we know her is because Annie, as she was called, was the special-education teacher in Sandy Hook Elementary School who was killed in the Slaughter of the Innocents Friday, Dec. 14 and who died with her arms protectively cradling a six-year-old boy named Dylan Hockley. Dylan had learning disabilities and Annie worked with him one-on-one. His parents said in a statement: We take great comfort in knowing that Dylan was not alone when he died, but was wrapped in the arms of his amazing aide, Anne Marie Murphy. They added: Dylan loved Mrs. Murphy so much and pointed at her picture on our refrigerator every day. Six teachers and staff of Sandy Hook Elementary School died that day. The principal, Dawn Hochsprung, 47, ran straight toward the shooter, trying to stop him, and was shot to death. The school psychologist, Mary Sherlach, 56, tried as well and paid with her life.

The grown-ups of Sandy Hook, from everything we know, were in those moments of maximum peril, when they confronted their own mortality individuals of profound char acter. And let us not forget that they and the others in that building were public school teachers, public Hell and the jaws of death. They, too, were public employees. They were also public servants. Public employees, according to so much cheap-shot campaign talk and too many cable commentators, are some sort of an indolent sub-species.

Page 16 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL DECEMBER 26, 2012 Closed Tuesday, Jan. 1If you have any questions, call us at 643-3777. The Liberty will be closed on the following date in observance of the New Years Holiday:People across the globe anxiously await the arrival of the new year. Different cultures and religions celebrate their own new year at different times, but for much of the world, January 1 marks the date for change and renewal. With so much emphasis placed on what people will be doing for the last day of the year, little thought may be given to what to do after the clock strikes 12. Each minute afterward opens up the possibilities to begin fresh with new goals and tasks. For those wondering how to commence the new year, there are many ways to tackle the first day and thereafter -after you have recovered from the New Year's Eve celebration, that is. TAKE DOWN HOLIDAY DECORA TIONS. While there are some people who prefer to leave up their Christmas decorations until after the celebration of the Epiphany, or Three Kings Day, by January 1 many are ready to say goodbye to the holiday season for another year. Having the day off of work and school enables you to spend time removing decorations from the house and taking down the tree, especially before dried-out pine needles become more than you can handle. SHOP POST -HOLIDAY SALES. After spending several months buying for every person on your list, this could be a time that you focus on picking up some things for yourself or the household. Stores may need to liquidate holiday stock and other inventory to make room for spring styles. Many shoppers in the early days of January. Check online to comparison shop, and scour the Internet for any printable coupons that can earn you even bigger discounts. VISIT FAMILY AND FRIENDS. This time of year may be happy for some, but for those far from members of the family or seniors who may have lost many close companions, the winter and post-holiday season could bring on the blues. Visiting extended family you may not have seen during the holidays is one way to pass the day. You also can volunteer some of your time at a senior center or assisted-living facility to spread some post-holiday cheer. DISCARD EXPIRED FOODS AND MEDICINES. Take this opportunity to throw out any medications that expire this year, which will give you a head start on spring cleaning as well. Toss out old makeup and cosmetic products and make a list of new items to buy. Also, take inventory of the refrigerator and freezer, cleaning out any items that are no longer recognizable or that are past the recommended date. HEAD T O THE MOVIES. Go to the family. January is not the most active time can enjoy a lazy day with some cinematic magic and a bag of popcorn. MAKE A FOLDER T O ST ORE T AX PREPARA TION PAPERWORK. Tax season is just around the corner. Use this time to collect any paperwork you already may have received and put it in a safe place. Expect new statements of past earnings, any information about interest earned on bank statements and other pertinent tax documents to start arriving. Also, if you use W A TCH A FOOTBALL GAME. After weeks of running around at a break-neck pace, use this day to lounge around and game on television. Order in a pizza and cheer on your favorite team. ENCOURAGE THE KIDS T O PUT DOWN THE T OYS AND PICK UP A BOOK. Many students will be returning to school soon after an extended winter recess. Have them get back into the swing of things by brushing up on lessons last touched on in December. H OST A POST -HOLIDAY PO T LUCK. Clean out the refrigerator of those salvageable leftovers from your New Year's Eve bash. Invite others over with their own foods and host one last party before you have to get back to the daily grind. There are many ways to start off the new year on the right foot. Get a head start on cleaning or organizing, or relax once more with friends and family.

Tourists and residents in 11 southern Florida counties may have noticed that direc tional signs for the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail (GFBWT) were popping up all over the place. to 113 new birding and wildlife viewing sites from Sarasota and Stuart south to Key West, joining hundreds of other GFBWT locations throughout the state. Not only do these signs, bearing the swallow-tailed kite logo, designate ideal locations for birding and wildlife viewing adventures, they are also a symbol of positive economic impact. Gov. Rick Scott said, Wildlife viewing in Florida is a major reason why our state in the most popular tourist destina tion in the country. I am proud that Floridians and our visitors can now better enjoy the wildlife our state has to offer, while creating more opportunities for Florida families. A recent study about birding in Florida indicated the trails road signs play an important role in visitors travel deci sions. Of 1,652 par ticipants, 65 percent had seen a GFBWT road sign, prompting a later visit (81 per cent indeed visited later). We hope that many Florida families and tourists will follow these new signs and explore the trail and discover the fascinating wildlife these sites have to offer, said Mark Kiser, Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail coordinator for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Birding and wildlife viewing are important to Floridas economy, and the GFBWT program is an integral component of Floridas nature-based tourism industry. According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service data, wildlife viewing generates more than $5 billion in Florida and supports 51,000 jobs. A recent statewide survey by Responsive Management showed that wildlife viewing is the second most popular outdoor recreation activity in the state (behind going to the beach) for visitors and residents. The FWC installed the trail signage with a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation and support from the Wildlife Foundation of Florida. Dozens of feder al, state and local government agencies, nongovernmental organizations and private landowners also supported the effort. In addition to signs, the FWC has produced guide booklets that contain site descriptions, directions and maps showcasing birding and wildlife watching oppor tunities throughout Flor ida. Wildlife enthusiasts can download or order the GFBWT guidebooks at FloridaBirdingTrail. com and WildlifeFoundationofFlorida.com. Need further help planning an adventure? Use the Trip-Planning Wizard on the GFBWT website or download the free mobile application Nature Viewing Along the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail at iTunes.com and Play.Google.com. A series of city and regional guides called Ready, Set, Go Wild is also under way; the Or lando guide is now avail able.

GUNSMITHING MAKING TUPELO HONEY:My season with the bees JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORSDown South Calhoun County native Jim McClellan grew generations of his family has enjoyed. He lives in Pensacola. His columns can also be found on his blog, outdoorsdownsouth.com.Imagine going to work knowing that someone was going to sneak in and slap the everlovin snot out of you 30 to 40 times a day, every day. Theres nothing you can do about it and you dont know when or where its going to happen just that it will, a lot. If that sounds appealing, beekeeping may be your dream job. Except that instead of hard slaps, its painful stings that interrupt your day. Theres no retaliation because the bee dies shortly afterwards anyway. For you, its a few minutes of burning pain. For him, its a kamikaze attack. I know this because at 13 years old, I spent a tupelo season working for Charlie Cook Bridges, a Chevron distributor in Blountstown and my fathers long-suffering best friend. As I remember, the interview and selection process went something like this: Daddy came home one spring afternoon and said, Charlie Cooks coming by in a little while to pick you up. Youre going to work in the bees with him. I took some time (about a second) to consider all my options (none) before delivering my carefully worded counter-offer (Yes, sir). Im still not sure if Charlie Cook considered my service partial repayment for all the hardship Daddy put him through or if I was just one more on his long list of McClellan-related burdens. Whatever the case, Ive never had a better boss, teacher or workmate than Charlie Cook. on the job, I realized that my relationship with the bees wasnt going to be nearly as pleasant. That part became clear when we moved them. Since tupelo season lasts for only a few days to a few weeks, the bees had to be moved to wherever the trees were blooming. But the only time all the bees are in the hive is at night, so thats when we had to do it. The problem is that bees really dont like being disturbed any time, especially after dark. They make that pretty clear by crawling out of the boxes and blindly stinging anything that isnt another I can vouch for its effectiveness. My beekeepers uniform helped protect me somewhat. However, with several thousand bees attacking, a few dozen were bound to get through. Moving the bees often lasted until the wee hours. Once they were in the right place, we had to get the titi, gallberry and other less-desirable honey har tupelo. To do this, we placed boxes with empty frames on the hives and took the full ones (minus bees) back to the honey house, a concrete block structure where we worked in 90to 100-degree heat. Charlie Cook used a hot knife to unseal the combs and I ran the stainless steel centrifuge that extracted honey from the frames. We also collected the excess beeswax, which is used in everything from makeup to candles to soaps. Pound-for-pound, its worth more than honey, so we took care not to waste it. Working in the honey house was easier than moving bees, but it had its own set of challenges. For one, it was too hot to wear protective clothing, despite the large swarm of bees that loitered there. Adding to the misery was a thin layer of honey that coated everything in the place, including me. On a normal evening, Id usually get stung or in my hair. My reaction would be to dig the stinger out with my honey-covered hands. The honey in turn attracted yet more bees, and so on. Also, it seemed that anything I grabbed invariably had a bee attached to it, making my hands frequent targets as well. This went on every day of the week, but I got used to the grind and even the stings. Soon, the reddish bakery-grade honey began to take on a lighter color and before long pure, golden This is the same honey that years later was the subject of the movie Ulees Gold and eating it since childhood has spoiled me forever. As far as Im concerned there is no better honey in the world. Thats why Im happy now to see tupelo honey and the people who produce it getting the attention and respect they deserve. Its a unique natural treasure, produced by hard work, fraught Im also very proud to have worked with Charlie Cook Bridges in his last tupelo season. That experience taught me a lot, including how to suffer through a little pain and how to keep working until the work is done. Those skills have helped me in every job Ive had since. Working in the bees convinced me of something else as well: If I was a beekeeper, Bill Gates wouldnt be able to afford the honey I produced.
