Liberty County Deputy Darrell Johnson II responded to a call around 8:14 p.m. of a white four-door station wagon unable to stay in its lane. He spotted the car traveling east on SR 20 in the area of Chester Street. When the deputy saw the vehicle drive onto the shoulder of the road, he The driver, Prasit Ritnok, 43, was unstable as he stepped out of the car and smelled strongly of an alcoholic drink, according to the arrest report. Ritnok attempted to perform some roadside sobriety tests but was unable to keep his balance. He was taken into custody and charged with DUI. He was also charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana after a plastic bag containing a small amount of the substance was found in his vehicle. A cold, open container of alcohol was found within the drivers reach inside the car. Ritnok was later released on $1,500 bond.Crawfordville man charged with DUIA Blountstown woman arrested for operating a meth lab out of her Pear Street home told investigators she had been making and selling the drug for the past three months, according to an arrest report from the Calhoun County Sheriffs Theresa Marie Maclean, 43, was taken into custody after deputies served a search warrant at her home at 5:20 p.m. Monday. Deputies arrived to find Macleans daughter and her boyfriend leaving the residence. Maclean and a neighbor were inside. All were detained as the home was searched. The arrest report noted there was a strong chemical odor indicating a meth lab in use when deputies entered the home. Maclean secured a pet pit bull in a bathroom after removing it from under her bed. After getting the dog, she also moved a Pyrex dish from nearby and put it on the bed. She told investigators the chalky meth she had just dried. Most of the drug-making materials were located in Macleans bedroom, where deputies found a nylon bag hanging from a bedpost. Three reaction vessels used to make methamphetamine were in the bag, which is evidence that methamphetamine has been cooked several times in the home, according to the arrest report. A funnel and a plastic bottle with a bilayer liquid was found under the bed. Items found on her nightstand included unopened packs of lithium batteries, coffee filters with suspected pseudoephedrine pills, a box of drug paraphernalia, a container of meth powder and a tin with several glass pipes. A nearby eye dropper with suspected acid and an ice compress that contained ammonium nitrate. Saturated bottle, an empty pseudoephedrine box and several discarded blister packs that once held those pills were found in a trash can. Several more glass pipes were found in Macleans purse. Digital scales and small baggies were also found in the bedroom, indicating that the drug was being weighed and packaged for sale. Investigators also found a bag of hypodermic needles and a burnt spoon, indicating methamphetamine was being used intravenously in the home. A plastic bottle with a bilayer liquid was found on the kitchen counter, along with some muriatic acid. Maclean denied that anyone else had any involvement in the drugmaking process. She is charged with the manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of listed chemicals. Bond was set at $15,000. Lt. Jared Nichols and Lt.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JANUARY 16, 2013For America, its time to pay the piper. Bills have come due, and its time to pay up. Well, thats the conventional wisdom, but is it true? Depends on whom you ask. Republicans, particularly the Tea Partiers, will predict the worst of outcomes, which is if we dont reduce the size of government by slashing government spending, then surely America is going to Hell in a hand basket. Armageddon! did it to ourselves. The basic problem is that Americans think they can have it all without paying for it. What is it? The it in goods and services people expect such as police protection, paved streets, public schools, the U.S. military to protect the nation, and last but not least, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. The it we expect isnt cheap. Republicans have convinced the populace that all that has to be done to grow the economy is reduce taxes, and the rich folks, out of the goodness of their hearts, will build another factory in the U.S. and hire a bunch of people. Nothing could be fur ther from the truth. As to taxes and national cash again. Almost all of the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts were made permanent when the American Taxpayer Relief Act was passed a couple of weeks ago. I think that President Obama was wrong to agree to that scheme, but he was playing his political ace in the hole by protecting tax cuts for middle class. My view is that he should have let all the tax cuts expire then selectively rework the tax code and give tax breaks to those that really need tax relief. But, too late. Its a done deal. for the nation is the debt ceiling hoohaa. Republicans see increasing the debt ceiling as their leverage to reduce the size of government. What that means is that they intend to whack Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Social Security is not part of the national debt problem. SS pays for itself from its own trust fund. The problem is that the government raids the SS trust for cash for the general fund. The answer to maintaining the viability of SS is to increase the level of income on which taxes are paid. That earnings cap is $113,700 in 2013. Also, means test SS participants so that the wealthy retirees receive less. Medical cost in the U.S are about 18% of the U.S. economy compared to about 9% for other industrialized countries. Rules should be established to curtail excessive medical procedures. According to the Institute of Medicine, approximately 30% of the cost of medical care in the U.S. can be considered wasteful spending. People go to the doctor for a back pain. The doctor orders an MRI. Then its off to an or thopedic surgeon. Most of the time, getting rid of the fat gut and some exercise will solve lower back pain. Been there, done that. In addition to appealing to the medical industry to curtail costs, means test for Medicare services. People like me should pay more for Medicare than the widow woman down the street. The aversion of the American people to pay taxes for anything is a major fault line in the American economic system. The irony is that if their car or home insurance company increases the premiums on their car or home insur ance, they pay it. But if the government increases taxes to pay for Medicare, they squeal like a pig caught in a fence. People in my community are a good example. The majority of us are retired or active duty military. A retiree that hasnt reached the Medicare age of 65 has some form of Tricare health insurance. Depending on the type, annual fees and co-pays vary. The Department of Defense funds Tricare, and when the DoD/Tricare change rates or the cost of medicines from the local pharmacy, retirees squeal like that pig caught in a fence. But, if their car insurance premium increases, they pay it. spending is temporary. The U.S. of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, two wars and Medicare Part D all funded on the national credit card. Then add the cost of the economic crash of 2008 along with reducing the national cash cial knees. While the economy is recovering, the process will take longer because of Obamas acceptance of 98% of the Bush tax cuts. A mistake because cash liberately reducing the national up part of a weekly paycheck. solutions are murky at best. I Republicans and Democrats have the backbone to do what is best for America. They are selfserving political party hacks, not statesmen with Americas best interest at heart.

For competitors, the chal lenge is to harvest the wellthon, which can grow to more than 17 feet in the wild in Florida, with the chance of winning prizes of up to $1,500. Registrants are coming from more than 30 other states. They will have through these nonvenomous constrictors. For the FWC, the primary goals of the Python Challenge are to raise public awareness and increase the agencys knowledge base regarding this invasive species and how to better understand and address impacts on the Everglades ecosystem, including native wildlife. The 2013 Python Challenge is an unprecedented effort to focus public interest, support and direct involvement to help deal with Burmese pythons, said FWC Chairman Kenneth Wright at the kickoff news conference. The FWC is pleased that so many people are joining this earnest effort to limit the impact of this invasive species on Floridas diverse native wildlife. Floridians and people from all across the United States truly care about the Florida Everglades, and they are clearly eager to help us better under stand and solve this problem, Wright added. When they harvest snakes, Python Challenge competi tors will be collecting valuable data that will contribute to the current Burmese python research and management efforts of the FWC and its partners, Wright said. We are grateful to Python Challenge partici pants, sponsors and partners for helping make this event happen. tors and the public to the 2013 Python Challenge Kickoff at the University of Florida Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center, which is in Davie. People attending the kickoff had the chance to get a close-up look at captive Burmese pythons, learn from experts how to identify these snakes and witness demonstrations of python-handling techniques. UF held its annual open house featuring work by faculty and students addressing invasive species in Florida. awareness events. The Python Challenge concludes with an Awareness and Awards Event on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Zoo Miami. There are two separate Python Challenge competitions: the Gener al Competition for the public and the Python Permit Holders Competition for people who have permits from the FWC and other agencies to regularly harvest these snakes. Both groups will be collecting data. When dropping off a harvested Burmese python, participants must submit data sheets providing information such as the snakes size, GPS location and habitat where it was found. Grand prizes of $1,500 for harvesting the most Burmese pythons will be awarded to winners of both the General Competition and the Python Permit Holders Competition, with an additional $1,000 prize for the longest Bur mese python harvested over all. Funding for the prizes is provided by sponsors and through registration fees. People can sign up for the Python Challenge at any time during the Jan. 12 to Feb. 10 competition, even on org for the required online training, as information on the public events. The key sponsors of the 2013 Python Challenge are the Felburn Foundation and Flowers Foundation. Many partners, including the University of Florida, The Nature Conservancy, The Future of Hunting in Florida, the Wildlife Foundation of Florida and Zoo Miami, are providing important support for the Python Challenge. The FWCs partner agencies have also played a critical role in these efforts; they include South Florida Water Management District, Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve. Florida prohibits possession or sale of Burmese pythons for use as pets, and federal law bans the importation and interstate sale of this species.

Newly elected Sheriff Nick Finch, accompanied by Superintendent of Schools Gay Uzzell, made the request to cover the salary for one additional position of 180 days per year. A long debate ensued. I am not here to argue about it, I am here to ask for it, Uzzell said at one point. Commissioner Dwayne Branch emphasized, We dont have the money ... we dont have the money! Uzzell pointed out that in addition to educating the children, we also have to protect them. Its something we both believe is very important, Finch added, mentioning another school shooting that took place that day, following the recent massacre that killed 20 elementary school children and six adults in Connecticut on Dec. 14. Suggestions came from the audience. One was to ple provide the service. One woman suggested plac ing a squad car not being used for patrol on school ground as a deterrent. Finch replied: We dont have one, and turning to board members with a smile, he told them that is unless they wished to invest in vehicles. The superintendent noted she believes the federal government will eventually provide funding for such protection, but she fears it will be too long before that happens. After lengthy discussion, the board passed a resolution to support the school board in its attempts to obtain government funding.

The proposed action would cut understory and mid-story hardwood vegetation from salamander and striped newt breeding ponds across the forest using chainsaws, brushcutters, and/or hand tools. Cut material would be removed to the uplands surrounding the isolated wetlands; and the herbicides triclopyr, glyphosate, or imazapyr would be used selectively to reduce resprouting and to control small diameter woody vegetation. This decision is subject to appeal pursuant to 36 CFR 215.11. Individuals or organizations that submitted substantive comments during the comment period may appeal. Appeals must meet content requirements of 36 CFR 215.14. If no appeal is received, implementation of this decision may occur on, but from the close of the appeal received, implementation may not occur for 15 business days following the date of appeal disposition.

Liberty County Deputy Darrell Johnson II responded to a call around 8:14 p.m. of a white four-door station wagon unable to stay in its lane. He spotted the car traveling east on SR 20 in the area of Chester Street. When the deputy saw the vehicle drive onto the shoulder of the road, he The driver, Prasit Ritnok, 43, was unstable as he stepped out of the car and smelled strongly of an alcoholic drink, according to the arrest report. Ritnok attempted to perform some roadside sobriety tests but was unable to keep his balance. He was taken into custody and charged with DUI. He was also charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana after a plastic bag containing a small amount of the substance was found in his vehicle. A cold, open container of alcohol was found within the drivers reach inside the car. Ritnok was later released on $1,500 bond.Crawfordville man charged with DUIA Blountstown woman arrested for operating a meth lab out of her Pear Street home told investigators she had been making and selling the drug for the past three months, according to an arrest report from the Calhoun County Sheriffs Theresa Marie Maclean, 43, was taken into custody after deputies served a search warrant at her home at 5:20 p.m. Monday. Deputies arrived to find Macleans daughter and her boyfriend leaving the residence. Maclean and a neighbor were inside. All were detained as the home was searched. The arrest report noted there was a strong chemical odor indicating a meth lab in use when deputies entered the home. Maclean secured a pet pit bull in a bathroom after removing it from under her bed. After getting the dog, she also moved a Pyrex dish from nearby and put it on the bed. She told investigators the chalky meth she had just dried. Most of the drug-making materials were located in Macleans bedroom, where deputies found a nylon bag hanging from a bedpost. Three reaction vessels used to make methamphetamine were in the bag, which is evidence that methamphetamine has been cooked several times in the home, according to the arrest report. A funnel and a plastic bottle with a bilayer liquid was found under the bed. Items found on her nightstand included unopened packs of lithium batteries, coffee filters with suspected pseudoephedrine pills, a box of drug paraphernalia, a container of meth powder and a tin with several glass pipes. A nearby eye dropper with suspected acid and an ice compress that contained ammonium nitrate. Saturated bottle, an empty pseudoephedrine box and several discarded blister packs that once held those pills were found in a trash can. Several more glass pipes were found in Macleans purse. Digital scales and small baggies were also found in the bedroom, indicating that the drug was being weighed and packaged for sale. Investigators also found a bag of hypodermic needles and a burnt spoon, indicating methamphetamine was being used intravenously in the home. A plastic bottle with a bilayer liquid was found on the kitchen counter, along with some muriatic acid. Maclean denied that anyone else had any involvement in the drugmaking process. She is charged with the manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of listed chemicals. Bond was set at $15,000. Lt. Jared Nichols and Lt. Todd Wheetley were assisted at the scene Ethan Shuler of the Blountstown Police Department and Calhoun County Deputy Scotty Norris.Woman admits making, selling meth at Pear Street residenceThereHERESaA M.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JANUARY 16, 2013For America, its time to pay the piper. Bills have come due, and its time to pay up. Well, thats the conventional wisdom, but is it true? Depends on whom you ask. Republicans, particularly the Tea Partiers, will predict the worst of outcomes, which is if we dont reduce the size of government by slashing government spending, then surely America is going to Hell in a hand basket. Armageddon! did it to ourselves. The basic problem is that Americans think they can have it all without paying for it. What is it? The it in goods and services people expect such as police protection, paved streets, public schools, the U.S. military to protect the nation, and last but not least, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. The it we expect isnt cheap. Republicans have convinced the populace that all that has to be done to grow the economy is reduce taxes, and the rich folks, out of the goodness of their hearts, will build another factory in the U.S. and hire a bunch of people. Nothing could be further from the truth. As to taxes and national cash again. Almost all of the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts were made permanent when the American Taxpayer Relief Act was passed a couple of weeks ago. I think that President Obama was wrong to agree to that scheme, but he was playing his political ace in the hole by protecting tax cuts for middle class. My view is that he should have let all the tax cuts expire then selectively rework the tax code and give tax breaks to those that really need tax relief. But, too late. Its a done deal. for the nation is the debt ceiling hoohaa. Republicans see increasing the debt ceiling as their leverage to reduce the size of government. What that means is that they intend to whack Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Social Security is not part of the national debt problem. SS pays for itself from its own trust fund. The problem is that the government raids the SS trust for cash for the general fund. The answer to maintaining the viability of SS is to increase the level of income on which taxes are paid. That earnings cap is $113,700 in 2013. Also, means test SS participants so that the wealthy retirees receive less. Medical cost in the U.S are about 18% of the U.S. economy compared to about 9% for other industrialized countries. Rules should be established to curtail excessive medical procedures. According to the Institute of Medicine, approximately 30% of the cost of medical care in the U.S. can be considered wasteful spending. People go to the doctor for a back pain. The doctor orders an MRI. Then its off to an orthopedic surgeon. Most of the time, getting rid of the fat gut and some exercise will solve lower back pain. Been there, done that. In addition to appealing to the medical industry to curtail costs, means test for Medicare services. People like me should pay more for Medicare than the widow woman down the street. The aversion of the American people to pay taxes for anything is a major fault line in the American economic system. The irony is that if their car or home insurance company increases the premiums on their car or home insurance, they pay it. But if the government increases taxes to pay for Medicare, they squeal like a pig caught in a fence. People in my community are a good example. The majority of us are retired or active duty military. A retiree that hasnt reached the Medicare age of 65 has some form of Tricare health insurance. Depending on the type, annual fees and co-pays vary. The Department of Defense funds Tricare, and when the DoD/Tricare change rates or the cost of medicines from the local pharmacy, retirees squeal like that pig caught in a fence. But, if their car insurance premium increases, they pay it. spending is temporary. The U.S. of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, two wars and Medicare Part D all funded on the national credit card. Then add the cost of the economic crash of 2008 along with reducing the national cash cial knees. While the economy is recovering, the process will take longer because of Obamas acceptance of 98% of the Bush tax cuts. A mistake because cash liberately reducing the national up part of a weekly paycheck. solutions are murky at best. I Republicans and Democrats have the backbone to do what is best for America. They are selfserving political party hacks, not statesmen with Americas best interest at heart.

JANUARY 16, 2013 / THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 Nearly 800 people are registered and ready to compete to see who can bring in the longest and the most Burmese pythons from designated public lands in south Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) announced Saturday at the 2013 Python Challenge Kickoff in Davie. For competitors, the challenge is to harvest the wellthon, which can grow to more than 17 feet in the wild in Florida, with the chance of winning prizes of up to $1,500. Registrants are coming from more than 30 other states. They will have through these nonvenomous constrictors. For the FWC, the primary goals of the Python Challenge are to raise public awareness and increase the agencys knowledge base regarding this invasive species and how to better understand and address impacts on the Everglades ecosystem, including native wildlife. The 2013 Python Challenge is an unprecedented effort to focus public interest, support and direct involvement to help deal with Burmese pythons, said FWC Chairman Kenneth Wright at the kickoff news conference. The FWC is pleased that so many people are joining this earnest effort to limit the impact of this invasive species on Floridas diverse native wildlife. Floridians and people from all across the United States truly care about the Florida Everglades, and they are clearly eager to help us better understand and solve this problem, Wright added. When they harvest snakes, Python Challenge competitors will be collecting valuable data that will contribute to the current Burmese python research and management efforts of the FWC and its partners, Wright said. We are grateful to Python Challenge participants, sponsors and partners for helping make this event happen. tors and the public to the 2013 Python Challenge Kickoff at the University of Florida Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center, which is in Davie. People attending the kickoff had the chance to get a close-up look at captive Burmese pythons, learn from experts how to identify these snakes and witness demonstrations of python-handling techniques. UF held its annual open house featuring work by faculty and students addressing invasive species in Florida. awareness events. The Python Challenge concludes with an Awareness and Awards Event on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Zoo Miami. There are two separate Python Challenge competitions: the General Competition for the public and the Python Permit Holders Competition for people who have permits from the FWC and other agencies to regularly harvest these snakes. Both groups will be collecting data. When dropping off a harvested Burmese python, participants must submit data sheets providing information such as the snakes size, GPS location and habitat where it was found. Grand prizes of $1,500 for harvesting the most Burmese pythons will be awarded to winners of both the General Competition and the Python Permit Holders Competition, with an additional $1,000 prize for the longest Burmese python harvested overall. Funding for the prizes is provided by sponsors and through registration fees. People can sign up for the Python Challenge at any time during the Jan. 12 to Feb. 10 competition, even on org for the required online training, as information on the public events. The key sponsors of the 2013 Python Challenge are the Felburn Foundation and Flowers Foundation. Many partners, including the University of Florida, The Nature Conservancy, The Future of Hunting in Florida, the Wildlife Foundation of Florida and Zoo Miami, are providing important support for the Python Challenge. The FWCs partner agencies have also played a critical role in these efforts; they include South Florida Water Management District, Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve. Florida prohibits possession or sale of Burmese pythons for use as pets, and federal law bans the importation and interstate sale of this species.

Newly elected Sheriff Nick Finch, accompanied by Superintendent of Schools Gay Uzzell, made the request to cover the salary for one additional position of 180 days per year. A long debate ensued. I am not here to argue about it, I am here to ask for it, Uzzell said at one point. Commissioner Dwayne Branch emphasized, We dont have the money ... we dont have the money! Uzzell pointed out that in addition to educating the children, we also have to protect them. Its something we both believe is very important, Finch added, mentioning another school shooting that took place that day, following the recent massacre that killed 20 elementary school children and six adults in Connecticut on Dec. 14. Suggestions came from the audience. One was to ple provide the service. One woman suggested placing a squad car not being used for patrol on school ground as a deterrent. Finch replied: We dont have one, and turning to board members with a smile, he told them that is unless they wished to invest in vehicles. The superintendent noted she believes the federal government will eventually provide funding for such protection, but she fears it will be too long before that happens. After lengthy discussion, the board passed a resolution to support the school board in its attempts to obtain government funding.
