METAL ROOFING ARIANNAThe Cure for Shingles.INC.Health Care Board member responds to last weeks storyDear editor: I would like to respond to the misleading allegations made by Joel Montgomery in the Journal FQHC article last week, dated Wednesday, Jan. 2, wherein he stated that Liberty Community Health Care (LCHC) was not in compliance with the current grant regulations administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). In fact, LCHC is in full compliance with all grant conditions requirements and this was formally written in HRSA documents received by Shann Layne, current LCHC CEO, and Board Chairman Michael Clark Oct. 15 and 18, 2012. The Liberty County Health Department Administrator also received these documents last October and was part of the followup conference phone call with HRSA regarding full LCHC compliance. These conditions and all corretial information between HRSA, the LCHC Board of Directors and the Liberty County Health Department, so it is interesting how Mr. Montgomery provided the Journal with documentation regarding this privileged information and why he would be so intent on criticizing another FQHC. Perhaps Mr. Montgomery could spend his time more wisely by looking at his own lack of ability to hire physicians at North Florida Medical Centers Eastpoint, Panacea, Greenville and other facilities and at the exorbitant administrative salaries within his own organization. In late 2011, the LCHC Board of Directors asked HRSA to fully audit the health center facility, because the Board had concerns that there were non-compliance issues arising from the actions of the co-applicant health department. HRSA conducted an on-site visit Feb. 14-16 of 2012 and found certain conditions were not in tial audit is to what Mr. Montgomery was referring. The LCHC Board of Directors hired a new CEO and immediately worked with its co-appli cant partner, Liberty County Health Department, to successfully correct these conditions and emerged as a stronger organization. Our vision of a community health center is a competently run clinic where patients can get excellent health care at very low cost, get the their family members without driving long distances and where the revenue and grant money is returned to the community in the form of increasing ly better quality health care services that truly meet the needs of the local population. This is the type of locally controlled, low-cost, communitydriven health center that Liberty and Calhoun County have asked for and that we want to continue to provide. In closing, I am still overwhelmed with the tremendous amount of community support we have had while writing for this grant and I want to thank all the wonderful people and many organizations involved. If we succeed, our community will be rewarded with a great health center, led by deeply committed volunteers on our own local physician who under stands the needs of this area and cares profoundly about the welfare of its citizens. Ann Hosford Smith, Board of Directors, Liberty Community Health Care SPEAK UP!WITH A LETTER TO THE EDITORWrite: The Calhoun-Liberty Journal P.O.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JANUARY 9, 2013by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorYou might have noticed something differ ent when you picked up last weeks issue of The Calhoun-Liberty Journal. We grew a few inches. The width of the newspaper is the same but the length has increased. Weve had to give up our tabloid size, at least for now, for a longer, more traditional broadsheet size. It wasnt because we wanted to. When my father and I started The Journal in 1981, the goal was to provide something accessible and readable. We wanted you to you were waving for help while wrestling with the pages. Thats why we chose to do a tabloid size newspaper. We also like that it lends itself to single-topic pages, makIt was nice to be able to drop the paper on the table and page through it for a quick scan. Why change now? Costs. Its not the best time to be in the newspaper business and you have to tighten your belt where you can. Shifting to a longer page will eliminate paying someone to spend hours hand-folding the inserts that are just a little too long for our former tabloid size. but when youre sending out an average of 5,300 papers each week, well....thats a lot of folding. We appreciate the customers who have worked with us for years to have their inserts the agencies representing other customers wont make that second fold on the press for us without charging extra. And at that point, well....wed lose money since our insert rates are low to begin with. In fact, once they deducted what they would charge us to make that extra fold from what they paid us to mail money. So, weve decided to go with the broadsheet size, the same size used by most of todays newspaper a narrower, trimmed-down version of the old broadsheets that were once the standard. I hope youll get used to it. Its going to take me awhile. In the Dec. 26 issue, I mistakenly idenCourthouse hanging in the newly remodeled cal artist Jeff Vickery. It was not. Jeff didnt mind the mix-up but wanted to be sure the error was corrected. I have a better idea of how many people read the paper by the number that have told me they saw it in that article, he said, and added, I just tell them Im still waiting on the check. The large display featuring the old courthouse was done by Victor Ramos of Silver Quest Studios, who has several photos hangYou can see plenty of Jeffs work around Diamond Corner, at Snowden Land Surveying and on the front of the Lake House Restaurant. This week, the students at Hosford School are getting a brand new intern to break in our longtime photographer and Pea Ridge Road neighbor, Daniel Williams. (We hope he escapes the same fate as that unruly passenger on Icelandic Air who wound up duct-taped to Good luck, Daniel.Debt Ceiling: A question of ClausesWASHINGTON As Congress lurches toward the next cliff, a repeat of whether or not to raise the nations debt ceiling, it comes down to a question of of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. not threaten its use if Congress refuses to raise the debt ceiling because most legal experts agree that the clause only refers to debt already authorized. However, another constitutional path is more inviting, and it revolves around three other constitutional drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law . If under Clause 7 Congress has appropriated money and the president has signed the appropriations bill into law, thereby authorizing the various federal depens if the Treasury is empty, having spent everything it received from revenues, sales and borrowings? Congress cannot say to the secretary of the Treasury, We may have ordered you to fund the nations departments and agencies, but you cannot do so until we authorize the Treasury to borrow money under Clause 2 or print money under Clause 5. Not all constitutional clauses are equal. In this instance, Clauses 2 and 5 are pointless without Clause 7 because there is no reason to borrow or print money other than to spend it. That is where Clause 7 comes in and when employed alone, it clearly incorporates the obviously subordinate Clauses 2 and 5. If an appropriations bill is subject to further bor rowing or printing authorization, it must include such language in the bill. In the absence of such language, the Treasury has no choice but to comply with the law. It must fund as directed. As a result, an appropriations bill includes the tacit authorization for the Treasury to borrow and/or print money because it would have no other means of complying with the law if the Treasury is empty. If, on the other hand, Congress passed a bill under Clauses 2 and 5 forbidding the Treasury from borrowing and printing additional money at the same time it approved an appropriations bill that could not be funded any other way, a true constitutional crisis would ensue. In reality, of course, this is impossible because no Returning to the appropriations scenario alone, how would the Supreme Court likely rule if a case were brought against the secretary of the Treasury for bor rowing and printing money without congressional disburse funds as directed by Congress in its appropriations bill? Surely the justices would side with the secretary of the Treasury who would have had no choice but to comply with the intent and letter of the law. And absent any language or law to the contrary, the intent to spend money it does not have, the congressional or der includes the tacit authorization to borrow or print the necessary money. This is all the more true if at the time Congress passed the appropriations bill it knew that the Treasury could only comply with it by borrowing or printing money. The intent is clear.

I would like to send out a special invitation for everyone to stop by or call me.Follow rule of halves in managing for turkeysWhether you oversee a large tract of land or own a smaller parcel, there are many wildlife management techniques you can use to help attract and keep wild turkeys on your property. Wild turkeys, like deer, are edge species, because of their need for more than one type of habitat. Most of the time, with large tracts of land, this isnt a problem because the vast landscape is diverse enough. But in the case of small-acreage, one-habitat properties, its up to you as the landowner to create varied, preferred habitats if you expect turkeys to use the property. For optimal turkey habitat, most experts believe a rule of halves should be applied to the landscape. What that means is that half of the area (and if you own a small tract, then include surrounding proper ties) should be in mature forests and the other half in and plantation-cut landscapes. To create even better and more varied habitats for turkeys, you should offer differing age classes of forests and early-succession areas and make prescribed burning a big part of your management plan. This will enable new growth of succulent, woody or Hardwood lowlands provide travel corridors that turkeys and deer use extensively and feel comfortable moving through. Most wild turkeys prefer to roost in trees over or near water, so its important to leave these areas undisturbed and free from timber ing. Buffer strips of native grasses and woody ornamentals should be left un-mowed where clear-cut areas meet pine or hardwood forests. Hens require this thick understory cover for nesting. In Florida, most hens begin laying their eggs in late March or early April and the eggs take about 25 days to hatch, so take care not to burn or mow through August. After hatching, poults will roost on riod, approximately 70 percent of these young birds wont survive, primarily because of predation from raccoons, hawks, coyotes, foxes and bobcats. Attempts to control these predators are usually ineffective and economically unfeasible, so your efforts are better spent creating and maintaining goodquality brood habitat. Good brood habitat should hold food in the form of seeds, insects and tender, new-growth vegetation for young poults to feed upon throughout the summer. It should consist of one-to-three-foot-tall grass and weeds open enough to enable the young poults to move about, yet dense enough to provide cover from the above-mentioned predators. There is great interest nationally in the planting of food plots for wildlife, including for turkeys. Within extensive closed-canopy forested areas, food plots and/or game feeders are essential to keeping turkeys on your property. Where an open forest structure is maintained by adequate timber thinning and the use sary because there is enough natural browse vegetation on which game can feed. tal feeding can be quite expensive. In these cases, proper use of burning and timber-thinning management are more economical ways of providing food for turkeys and other wildlife. Food plots, though, are a lot more cost-effective at feeding game than using feeders on moderate-sized pieces of property. In cases of smaller tracts, perhaps where food plots cant be utilized because the landscape is all lowland and you have a closed canopy, only option for attracting turkeys. When thinking about good food plot sites, avoid excessively wet or dry areas and dont place them along heavily used roads to minimize disturbance and possible poaching. Look to create these openings along an edge where upland pines meet a hardwood drain. This way, youll have an area where three separate habitats converge. Keep in mind that it is recommended that two percent to three percent of the land should be in these permanent openings. The best food plots are long and narrow rectangular shapes that follow the contour of the land. When possible, create food plots where the length (longest part) runs east to west. That way, the planted crops will receive the most direct sunlight. In the fall, cereal grains like wheat, oats and rye can be planted along with Austrian winter peas, clover and brassicas like turnips, rape and kale. Except for clover, these crops grow well in most of Florida. Clover requires a higher soil pH between 6.5 and seven and it often wont grow in the sandy soils that make up most of our state, unless you apply enough lime to bring the pH level up. In the northern-tiered counties that border Alabama and Georgia, the soil is richer with red clay and several varieties of clover and other legumes will grow well there. All of the above-mentioned cool-season forages At least twice as much fertilizer should be applied. Slightly cover the seed by pulling a drag over it and try to put your crop in the ground when the soil is holding some moisture and rain is in the forecast. your browned-up fall crop and replace it with any combination of soybeans, cowpeas, browntop millet, sorghum or peanuts. If you can afford it, turkeys are especially fond of chufa. That, along with the other warm-season forages, can be broadcasted and planted just like the cool-weather crops. Hopefully, using some or all of these wildlifemanagement practices will help bring in turkeys and increase your propertys carrying capacity for birds.

Its all within reach.by Tom Nordlie, University of FloridaGAINESVILLE An 80-year search for a tree killer has ended, says a University of Florida for est pathologist who helped identify the fungus that virtually wiped out the Florida Torreya and fears it may threaten other species. The fungus infects more than 90 percent of wild Florida Torreyas in their native range, which covers parts of North Florida and South Georgia close to the Apalachicola River, said Jason Smith, an associate professor with UFs School of Forest Resources and Conservation, part of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Smith is part of a research team that discovered the fungus, Fusarium torreyae and formally described it in the journal Mycologia. Personnel from Atlanta Botanical Garden and the state Department of Environmental Protection are also involved. Over the years, the most common hypothesis was that a disease was killing Torreya, Smith said. But nobody had pinned down the cause until now. Now we hope to use this information to conserve the species and make some progress toward re-establishing the tree in its native range. The Florida Torreya is a primi tive evergreen related to pines and wood, the tree began dying off in the 1930s. Today, its one of the worlds rarest tree species, found primarily in Torreya State Park in Floridas Liberty County. Though all adult Florida Torreyas are gone, the species may continue to survive in the wild in a stunted form. Many of the remaining Tor reya stumps send up healthy young shoots that survive until the fungus infects and kills them, usually about the time the shoots are three feet tall. A mature Florida Torreya tree can be 75 feet tall. A few of the wild specimens are disease-free and Smith says one of the research teams priorities is to conduct genetic testing to determine whether those trees possess natural resistance to the fungus. If so, it may be possible to induce resistance in other Florida Torreyas through conventional breeding or other means. The team is also raising healthy Florida Torreyas from seed. Some are being returned to the wild, but their prospects are uncertain. After extensive surveying, the researchers concluded that the fungus is present throughout the trees native range. To give those transplanted specisearchers carefully select and prepare planting sites, amending soil and removing vegetation that might compete for sunlight. Theres some hope, Smith said. If we can reduce the stress on the tree by growing it under different conditions, we might be able to boost its natural resistance to the fungus. The team also plans to analyze the fungus and investigate ways to manage it. Researchers believe the pathogen is not native to the United States, but determining its origins nus is large and widely distributed around the globe and scientists believe many species remain undetect ed in their natural habitats. If the fungus natural habitat is found, researchers may be able to pinpoint natural enemies useful in controlling the disease. Ironically, Smiths biggest concern about the fungus doesnt even concern the Florida Torreya tree. Hes afraid it will infect an economically important species shown to be highly sensitive to the fungus. Those trees grow in the Appalachian Mountains, several hundred miles north of the Florida Torreyas native range. In theory, they should be safe. However, a group of environmental activists has been raising Florida Torreya trees and planting them in the wild, including parts of Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee. The activists say they believe the species was once native to the Southern Appalachian Mountains and want to re-establish it there. But Smith is worried theyll end up introducing the fungus. Almost all the cultivated Torreya trees weve seen have been infected, he said. So were concerned that one of these Torreya being planted in the Appalachians could end up leading to infection of spruce and disastrous.The University of Florida is one of the nations largest public universities. A member of the Association of American Universities, UF posted research expenditures totaling $740 million in 2011. Through its research and other activities, UF contributes more than $8.76 billion a year to Flor idas economy and is responsible for generating more than 100,000 jobs statewide.

He is part of a research team Torreya trees since the 1930s. The culprit is a fungus, which the team described in a recent issue of the journal Mycologia.How is it that climate change is negatively affecting the health of rivers and, by extension, the quality and avail ability of fresh water? -Robert Elman, St. Louis, MOGlobal warming is no doubt going to cause many kinds of problems (and, indeed, already is), and rivers may well be some of the hardest hit geographical features, given the likelihood of associated spread of waterborne diseases. For one, rivers are already starting to lose the amount of water they channel. A 2009 study at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) found that water volume in the Columbia River in the 14 percent since the 1950s. This trend is similar in major rivers all over the world. Many communities will see their water supplies shrink as temperatures rise and precipita tion patterns shift, reports the ing that a rise in severe storms increase the risk of catastrophic and location of precipitation combined with rising levels of water pollution will strain ecosystems and threaten the survival of many shifts will have dramatic impacts, threatening public health, weakening economies and decreasing In the U.S., the number of storms with extreme precipitation has increased 24 percent since the late 1940sand the trend is expected to continue. Another certain impact on rivers is more pollution as powerful storms increase runoff from urban and agricultural areas that contain fertilizers, pesticides, chemi cals and motor oil. In older communities where storm water and sewage are transported together in one pipe, heavy storms can overwhelm the system and send raw sewage and polluted storm water into nearby streams and rivers, says American Rivers. These combined sewer over extreme storms increase. temperatures compound problems caused by more runoff. More precipitation patterns lower water levels in rivers, lakes and streams, leaving less water to dilute pollutants, says the group. Higher temperatures cause more reduce dissolved oxygen levels, both of which can tems. American Rivers reports that the health of our rivers in the face of increasing warming will depend largely on community preparedness. Municipalities that fail to address aging infrastructure will experience greater increases in storm water runoff and sewer over communities that have damaged their wetlands, for ests, streams and rivers will have fewer natural defenses to protect against the effects of climate change. There is much we can do to protect rivers besides reduce our carbon footprints. American Rivers is promoting green infrastructurean approach to water management that protects, restores or mimics the natural water cycleas the way to bolster the health of rivers. It means planting trees and restoring wetlands rather than building a new water treatment plant. It means choosing water efwater supply dam. It means restor taller levees. Communities that have damaged their wetlands, forests, streams and rivers will have fewer natural defenses to protect against the effects of climate change.
