Brodrick Jarod Alls, 23, of Quincy, had just been told his bond was revoked and he was heading to jail during his court appearance that morning. But instead of leaving with the bailiff, He walked around the courtroom like he was going out the front door, said Liberty County Capt. Wes Harsey, who was stationed at the door scanning visitors as they entered court that morning. No sir, you cant go that way, Judge Jonathan Sjostrom told Alls as he headed for the door. Harsey grabbed Alls by the arm, told him he was in custody and directed him to walk toward Bailiff David Black. Alls turned around and stopped to hand over his phone to his girlfriend,Crystal Michelle Bruce, 20, and then went with the bailiff, who escorted him to the inmate exit on the east side of the courtroom. After Alls signed some papers notifying him of his next court date, the bailiff turned him around to place him in handcuffs. At that moment, Alls bolted. He opened the door, ran down the staircase and hit the ground running, said Black. He ignored orders to stop as Black ran after him, going around the south side of the courthouse. Jason Brock, communications supervisor and part-time dispatcher joined the chase, running around the north side of the building. When Black got to the west side of the building, wheel of a dark-colored 1999 Honda, going south on Central Avenue. His girlfriend was in the passengers seat. Deputy Darrell Johnson was in the LCHS parking lot when he learned of the escape. He headed north on CR 12 N and caught up with Alls at Meredith Road, about nine miles from Liberty Correctional Institution. The vehicle was still in motion when Alls jumped out. The car which had just run out of gas came to a stop in the middle of the road as Alls, wearing blue shorts and a black hooded jacked, ran east on a dirt road off CR 12 N. Johnson approached the car with his weapon drawn, took Bruce into custody and radioed Alls location to search teams. The Leon County Sheriffs Office helicopter was launched and began the search from overhead as the dog tracking team from Liberty Correctional Institution was called out. The dog team from Franklin Correctional Institution was put on standby. Deputies were joined by the FHP, the Gadsden County the scene. Once the dog team began their efforts, They had him in 35 or 40 minutes, according to Harsey. He said he found Alls lying down in a clear cut area. He had gone down into a wood bay that runs down a swamp and tried to loop behind us, said Harsey. Alls was in custody by 11:15 a.m. The dog tracking team included Capt. Timothy Brantley, Sgt. Jamie Thomlinson, Lou Daniels and Jeffery Davis. Liberty County Sheriff Nick Finch joined the scene while en route to Bristol from See COURTHOUSE ESCAPE continued on page 14 BRODRICK ALLS Brodrick Alls ran down this staircase, got in a car and sped away from the Liberty County Courthouse Monday morning in Bristol.

The eastbound truck made an abrupt left turn onto Mason Road, drove north until turning into a yard at 17294 Mason Road. The driver then looked at me and accelerated back onto Mason Road, Temple said in his report. The driver lost control of the truck when he failed to slow down for a curve and went into the ditch. Temple approached Harris and ordered him out of the truck. As he attempted to handcuff the driver, Harris pulled back his hand and tried to run. Harris continued to struggle despite warning that Temple would use his Taser if he did not stop. Harris was shot with the Taser, who without violence and issued a criminal citation for speeding.

Last weekend, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, were in Washington, where they met with friends and supporters and attended the annual Alfalfa Club dinner, an exclu sive black-tie event. One of the more memorable lines from last years closed-to-the-press dinner was former Florida Gov. Jeb Bushs needling of his most famous sibling, when -while addressing the then-unsettled GOP nomina tion contest -he reported that at one point his brother even thought about running again: George, I said, the Constitution prohibits you from running again. He said, Wow, they put my name in the Constitution? The weekends real political news, however, was be ing made by the GOPs 2008 standard-bearer, Arizona Sen. John McCain, along with GOP Senate colleagues Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Caro lina and Marco Rubio of Florida, all of whom had been working with Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer of New York, Michael Bennet of Colorado, Bob Menendez of New Jersey and Dick Durbin of Illinois to produce a comprehensive compromise immigration plan. That plan -which said that after measures were taken to secure the border, undocumented immigrants could obtain legal status on a probationary basis once and any back taxes owed -was proudly unveiled by the eight senators. By losing the growing Hispanic vote nationally 71 percent to 27 percent to President Barack Obama after paign, Romney not only made the senators bipartisan immigration proposal possible. For his fellow Republi cans, Romney made the switch on immigration impera tive. As McCain put it on Wednesday at a breakfast hosted by Politico, If you have a large bloc of Americans who believe youre trying to keep their ... fellow Hispanics down and deprive them of an opportunity, obviously thats going to have an effect. What sort of an effect? McCain: The trend will con tinue of lack of support from Hispanic voters, and also, as you look at the demographics of states like mine, that means we will go from Republican to Democratic over time. One irony is that McCain was one of Romneys most important 2012 endorsers for the nomination. This sur prised some of us who remembered the Romney TV spot four years earlier that charged that McCain had pushed to let every illegal immigrant stay here permanently even voted to allow illegals to collect Social Security. And Mitt Romney? He opposes amnesty for illegals. Earlier in 2007, Romney test-drove his 2012 cam paign when he attacked an Arkansas plan that enabled the children of undocumented immigrants to apply for college scholarships. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee counterpunched: Im standing here tonight on this stage because I got an education. If I hadnt had the education, I wouldnt be standing on this stage, I might be picking lettuce. In all due respect, were a bet ter country than to punish children for what their parents did ... . In 2008, Romney got even tougher on Texas Gov. Rick Perry and the Lone Star States Dream Act: One of the things I still cant get over is the idea that a state would decide to give $100,000 discounts to the children of illegals to go to school in their state. According to projections from the respected Pew Researchs Social & Demographic Trends, Hispanics, who constituted just 3.5 percent of the U.S. population in 1968 and 17 percent in 2011, will jump to 29 percent of the U.S. total in 2050. Asian-Americans, who were a tiny 0.6 percent in 1960, will increase to 9 percent. With African-Americans growing to 13 percent of the nation, this would mean that whites -who had been 85 percent of all Americans in 1960 -would shrink by the middle of the century to approximately 47 percent. A bipartisan immigration bill staking out the path to citizenship will not, by itself, be a political silver bullet for a GOP still trying to shake off the anti-immigrant baggage the Romney candidacy saddled it with. But it could mean that Republican candidates might eventu ally, after hard work, hope to reach the 40 percent of the Hispanic vote George W. Bush won in 2004. Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL FEBRUARY 6, 2013 COMMENTARY WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND by Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Immigration reform becoming nonpartisan WASHINGTON If ever there was a clear example of the axiom that elections have consequences, it is the GOPs turnaround on immigration reform. Leading the charge is Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., who champi oned reform before he was against it, initially teaming up with Senator Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., on a legislative remedy and then running for reelection in Arizona on an anti-reform platform. Now hes out front pushing for immigration reform once again. Pretty dizzying, isnt it and it gets more bizarre when you consider that last years Republican presidential candidate won his partys nomination in part by moving farther to the right on the immigration issue than any of you might call soft on immigration. Romney coined the phrase self-deportation, suggesting that millions of illegal immigrants take it upon themselves to go back home and he said in response to a question that as presi dent he would veto the Dream Act. It was President Obamas executive order granting young people brought to the U.S. as children a legal right to remain and enroll in college or the military that was a factor in rallying Hispanic voters to join the Obama coalition. Obama won the Hispanic vote by a margin of three to one, which McCain cited as a reason for Re publicans to pursue immigration reform. As you look at demographics in states like mine, that means that we will go from Republican to Democrat over time, Mc Cain said at a breakfast sponsored by Politico two days after appearing with a bipartisan group of senators to unveil a framework for immigration reform. The sudden rush toward bipartisanship on an issue that only months ago had been so divisive is the result of naked politics. Republicans who look ahead to re capturing the White House understand that the GOP cant win a national election if they dont improve their standing with Hispanic voters, the fastest growing mi nority in the country. House Republicans remain a stumbling block. Un like McCain who can look around his state and see the changing demographics, a substantial number of House districts represented by Republicans have fewer than 10 percent Hispanic populations. They can kid themselves that immigration reform doesnt matter to their constit uents, but its not that simple. How the party presents itself sends a message to oth er voters that the GOP must court, particularly in con tested suburban districts. George W. Bushs campaign theme in 2000 of compassionate conservatism softened his partys hard edges and won over suburban women. In 2004, Bush won 44 percent of the Hispanic vote, a number that no Republican since has come close to matching. Bush made a good faith effort to achieve immi gration reform, working with McCain and Kennedy. But their coalition fell apart and when McCain sub sequently ran for reelection, he said if the bill he had co-sponsored with Kennedy came up for a vote on the back in the game, championing reform along with sev eral other key senators that include on the Republican side, Floridas Marco Rubio, a rising star and potential presidential contender. Rubios verbal gifts and instinc tive charm were on display when he appeared on Rush Limbaughs radio show this week. Limbaugh started out with a tough line against reform proposals offered by the senators but before long he was agreeing with Rubio that what they offer is a recognition of reality and that whatever the senators propose has to be better than anything the White House and Obama come up with. Tough decisions and hard compromises lie ahead, but the betting is that Washington has turned a corner on immigration reform. A big vote in the Senate, with perhaps more than 70 senators voting aye before the summer recess, could force the Houses hand and the sound you hear will be gridlock breaking.

Aunt Ann, the Turkey and the Truth JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South OUTDOORS Ann Larkins FWC releases female panther they rescued as kitten in 2011 Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) released a female Florida panther Thursday night at the Picayune Strand State Forest in Collier County. The panther and its brother had been raised at the White Oak Conservation Center in Yu old. The FWC rescued the two panthers as kittens in September 2011 near the Corkscrew Region al Ecosystem Watershed in north ern Collier County after their mother was found dead. This panther is healthy and has grown to a size that should prepare her for life in the wild, said Darrell Land, FWC panther team leader. The goal in any panther rescue is to be able to release the animal back into the wild to aid in the recovery of this endangered species. The release was coordinated in consultation with partners from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser vice. Five other kittens of similar ages three females and two males have been raised at White Oak and released in south Flori da. We are grateful for the work the staff at White Oak has done to prepare this panther and others for release, said Land. Biologists chose the Picayune Strand State Forest for the release of this panther after they evalu ated the home ranges of other females in the region and found available space between them. An estimated 100 to 160 adult and subadult panthers remain in south Florida. Florida residents can support conservation efforts like the res cue and rehabilitation of this pan ther through the purchase of a panther license plate. Fees from license plate sales are the primary funding source for the FWCs re search and management of Flori da panthers. To report dead or injured pan thers, call the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922) or #FWC or *FWC on a cell phone.

Please take advantage of this chance to look at our draft action plans for 23 spe cies and tell us how they can be im proved, she said.

FWC unveils plans for conserving 23 species in Florida My wife and I got us a new hun tin spot this year, and as hunting seasons go, we have had a pretty good one thus far. We each took a racked buck, al though I will admit hers was bigger. Also, I took a doe and a nice longbeard with my bow. But theres still lots of deer-hunting days west of where we live in Tal lahassee. So if youre like me and not ready for deer season to be over and dont mind hunting with a primitive weapon, then point your pickup truck toward Zone D, because deer season is still goin strong on private lands and on a lot of the wild life management areas (WMAs). The second phase of muzzleloading gun sea son runs Monday, Feb. 18-24 in the Panhandles Zone D. This unique late season, which occurs only in this zone, was estab lished to allow hunters the chance to hunt the rut, which runs from mid-Jan uary through February in this part of the state. A $5 muzzleloading gun permit is required to hunt during this season, where, on private land, hunters have the choice of using a muzzleloader, bow or crossbow. On WMAs, this post season is referred to as the archery/muzzleload ing gun season. Hunters can use bows or muzzle loaders, but not cross bows, unless they possess a disabled crossbow per mit. Hunters who choose to hunt with a bow must have the $5 archery per mit and those using a muzzleloader need the muzzleloading gun per mit. The most common kinds of game to hunt during this season are deer and wild hogs. Only bucks may be taken (even if you use a bow) and one antler inches in length. If youre hunting deer, make sure you have the $5 deer permit. On pri vate land, the daily bag limit is two. Bag limits and antler size for deer on WMAs can differ, so please consult the area brochure before you hunt. Wild hogs arent considered game ani mals on private lands, and because of this, they can be taken yearround by most weapons with no bag or size lim its. On most WMAs, there also are no bag or size limits, and hogs are legal to take during most hunting seasons except spring turkey. On selected WMAs, limits do apply, so check the areas bro chure to make sure. No dogs may be used in the pursuit of deer during this season. However, leashed dogs can be used to track a wounded deer if neces sary. And its important to note that no turkeys may be taken dur ing this season. Bows and crossbows must have a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds and handheld releases on bows are permit ted. Broadheads used in taking deer must have at least two sharpened edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch. During this season, you may use only muzzleload ers that take black powder or a non-nitro-cellulose or percussion cap ignition (including 209 primers). You may not use muz zleloaders that require smokeless powder or those with self-contained cartridge ammunition capabilities. For hunting deer, muzzleloaders that at least .40-caliber, and balls must be 20-gauge or larger. Youre allowed to take deer and hogs over feed ing stations on private land, but its illegal to do that on WMAs. Twelve of the WMAs in Zone D have a late ar chery/muzzleloading gun season and if you plan to hunt any of em, you must have the $26 management area permit as well. Ten of those areas dont require a quota permit during this period: Apalachicola, Apalachicola River, Bea verdam Creek, Black water, Choctawhatchee Escambia River, Point Washington, Tates Hell and Yellow River WMAs. The only ones that do re quire a quota permit are Chipola River and Per dido River WMAs. You can get all of the li censes and permits youll need at any tax collectors supplies, by calling (888) HUNT-FLORIDA or by going online at License. MyFWC.com. So if youre not quite ready to give up on deer hunting, have no fear, cause Februarys here! Grab your favorite primi tive weapon and head over to Zone D where the rut is still on.
