CALHOUNLIBERTY J OURNAL THE W ednesday FEB. 27, 2013 Vol. 33, No. 9 50 includes tax BHS weightlifting champ killed in Oklahoma shooting Thursday by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor The way he was always smiling and laughing, it just seemed like he had all his stuff together. Nothing could make him mad, says Blountstown High School senior Christian Pierce about his friend Chaz Fain. The two friends shared the nose guard position on the school football team. I was his backup last year when he was a senior, he said. We went fishing sometimes, rode around town and went to the volleyball games cheerleaders when we were on the sidelines, Christian recalled. He learned last week that he will never share another laugh with Chaz, tease him about his height or hear him offer encouragement to another weightlifter. Chaz Fain was killed during a shooting at an apartment complex in Tulsa, OK, where the 18-year-old had moved to attend Spartan School of Aeronautics. When police arrived at Spartan Landing Apartments Thursday night in response to a other men two just 18, another 19 were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. knew each other, according to the Tulsa Police Department. Two of the injured men shared an apartment with the alleged shooter. Hopkins is being charged with one count of with intent to kill. The police said the motive for the shooting is not known. He was a jokester, BHS Coach Greg Jordan said about Chaz. He liked to clown around but he knew when to be serious. One thing he was very serious about was weightlifting. It was his passion, the coach said. The 5 competitor won a state class. We played football but our main thing was weightlifting, said close friend Ryan Hathcox, who went on to win a state title himself the next year. Chaz taught Ryan a lot about weightlifting after he won his state title, said BHS teacher teased Ryan for a whole year. He encouraged him to do what he needed to do and was a good, positive role model. She called Chaz a little stick of dynamite, pointing out that despite his size, when he was guys twice his size. When he heard Friday morning that Chaz had been killed, Ryan didnt believe it. I called his cell phone twice, he said. He said the tragic shooting death of his good friend has given him a little perspective. Now, as a senior getting ready to graduate in a few weeks, he said he, doesnt take stuff lightly anymore. Coach Jordan saw Chaz just three weeks earlier when he was home for a visit. He realized that making the move alone to Oklahoma was a big step for Chaz, and saw that he was preparing for his future with hopes of becoming a jet engine mechanic. And until last weeks tragedy, the coach said, He had his whole life ahead of him. Chaz Fain is shown in a photo with his father posted on his Facebook page in December. by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor Despite collecting DNA evidence at the scene of a burglary in Calhoun County, it took more than three years to make an arrest because the suspects DNA wasnt in the system at that time.

Lt. Mark Mallory with the Liberty sex offender registrations in the county when he saw that Nicholas J. McClellan, 35, had reported that he was moving from a lot at NW Eric Circle to NW L&H Road in Bristol on Jan. 30. When McClellan came to re-register Feb. 12, Mallory ran a check of his drivers license and discovered it had not been changed until that day. His bond was set at $12,500. Clerk charged with petty theft for stealing lottery tickets A clerk at the Texaco Convenience Store on Central Avenue in Blountstown was arrested on petty theft charges after she allegedly stole lottery tickets including one that gave her $1,000 in winnings and canceled cash register transactions to cover the thefts. Cynthia Leigh Coleman, 39, of Blountstown, was taken into custody Feb. 18 for violations of the Florida Communication Fraud Act. According to the arrest report, store security video documented her ringing up sales from customers, then going back to the register to cancel the transaction. She is seen walking to the scratchoff lottery ticket dispenser, where she removes tickets and returns to the register. She then processes a transaction, causing the register drawer to open and close, but no money is put in. After reviewing store security video, Blountstown Police Department Investigator Michael Bryant found that during Colemans eight-hour shift on Jan. 17, she canceled $229.14 in sales. That timeframe would usually have an average of $15 in canceled transactions. On Jan. 20, a review of Colemans activities revealed she had 10 canceled transactions totaling $159.27 even though all of her customers left with purchased items. She was found to have played 30 scratch-off tickets during her eight-hour shift. Each time she scanned the ticket to see if it was a winner and then would go to the register to process the sale without putting any money in the cash drawer. Shift summaries showed she sold 106 lottery tickets. Approximately 70 tickets were purchased by customers. She played the remaining 30, which were valued at $132. After speaking with a lottery agent, Bryant learned that Coleman won $1,168 from the scratch off tickets taken on Jan. 20. She claimed her winnings Jan. 22. In a recorded interview after she was charged, Coleman admitted she had somewhat of an addiction to playing the lottery, according to the arrest report. and convicted of theft of personal property by an employee. She was later arrested four times for retail theft, was charged with 13 cases of worthless checks and one count of forging a prescription. A 24-year-old Blountstown man is charged with domestic battery by strangulation following an alleged altercation at the home of his estranged wife Feb. 18. John Paul Yon called the Calhoun County Sheriffs ask a deputy to go with him to his wifes home to ensure she would let him take their SUV for an upcoming trip, according to the arrest report. Yon was told that a deputy could accompany him only to keep the peace but could not make his wife turn the vehicle over to him. Yon said he understood and that he would call for a deputy if he decided to go to her house. Just before 9 p.m., a woman called 911 and whispered, Help, help me! The dispatcher determined it was Yons wife and sent deputies to her Gaston Spivey Road home. Deputies arrived and found the woman with visible injuries, including a red and swollen hematoma around her right eye. She had ligature marks around her neck and scratches on her chest. She stated Yon had tightened a belt around her neck and held on to it as he punched her in the face. While waiting for an ambulance, deputies photographed her injuries and took a belt she said Yon had used to choke her. Following medical treatment, she gave a statement at the hospital and told deputies she let her husband in when he knocked on her door that evening. She said she left the room to go to the bathroom and when she returned, she saw that Yon had picked up a belt that had been left on the couch and started cursing at her and calling her a meth head. When he accused her of being involved with another man, she said she told him he was stupid. She said that was when he put the belt over her head, twisted it to cut off her air and started hitting her. She said she clawed at the belt in an effort to get free. During their struggle, she started to walk backwards and said he began pushing her down the hallway, still cursing and calling her names. When they got to the bathroom, she said he released her as she was about to pass out, shouted at her and left the house. When deputies contacted Yon didnt hit her while I was there. He met deputies to give a statement and gave them the name of a woman who was also at the scene. When contacted, she told deputies she remained in the car and while she could see into the living room window of his wifes trailer, she did not witness anything that happened between the two. She said the only thing she saw was Yon coming out of the front door, with his wife standing behind him yelling. She said his wife did not appear to have any marks on her. Yon later stated he and his wife were having a civil conversation when she suddenly pushed him into the back door. He said he didnt lay a hand on her and told deputies he believed she caused the injuries to herself in an attempt to help her get full custody of their son. NICHOLAS MCCLELLAN A Calhoun County man given a conditional release following his arrest last month for felony domestic violence is back in Calhoun County Jail, where he is being held without bond. Steve Mears, Jr., 38, of Blountstown was arrested Friday for violating the terms of his conditional release by communicating with his exwife, according to the arrest report from the Calhoun County Mears former wife told deputies that over the past few weeks, he contacted her 113 times by text message and through phone calls. Family members told the sheriffs she fears he will harm her, her children and himself. Relatives said Mears had also gone inside his exwifes home Feb. 15 when she was not there. They reported he also went to her eldest sons place of work, where he blocked in his vehicle and told him he needed money. Mears was arrested in January after he went to the home of his ex, where he allegedly grabbed her around the neck and said he was going to kill her parents, eliminate everyone on his list and then commit suicide by cop. Sheriff Glenn Kimbrel and Lt. Emory Godwin found Mears at his home after the incident. A deputy took him to Bay County for a mental evaluation, where he was expected to stay for 72 hours. Mears returned to Blountstown the next day and was later taken into custody for domestic battery. in recent years worked as an investigator with the time, he has served as a staff representative with the Police Benevolent Association and as a licensed labor organization business agent with the Teamsters Local 2011 of Region 1.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL FEBRUARY 27, 2013 COMMENTARY As I watch politicians in Washington DC, I am re needs some adult supervision. We have learned what sequestration means, or at body into isolation, take property to cover obligation, or take the enemys property. For Washington politicians, se quester seems to mean, Im un willing to make a decision; Im unwilling to compromise, but to get myself to do what Im supposed to do, I will shoot myself in the foot by a certain date to make me do what I was supposed to do in the My crusty old grandmother had a saying for most every occasion. In say, Everyone tells the story in his best interest. President Obama, Democrats and the liberal-left are preaching doom and damnation if $85 billion is cut from the proposed $3.6 trillion federal budget. Republicans and right-wing conservatives shrug their political shoulders and say bring it on. So, the left is in a tizzy and the right says, So, what. Both politi cal parties are telling the sequestration story in their best interest. I think that the left is exaggerating the effect of a 2.3 percent reduction in the federal budget. On one of my Pentagon staff tours, I worked on the Air Force were required by the combat commands to defeat the enemy, which during the Cold War was the Soviet how many, the logistics troops would buy and trans port the munitions to the combat commands in Eu rope and Asia. My experience with DoD budgets is that the Penta gon isnt going to turn into a ghost town if they have to reduce spending. When the Air Force had budget issues when I was a wing commander, we absorbed the cuts in funding by We would take fewer squadron deployments. We might skip a squadron deployment to Nellis AFB for a Red Flag exercise. Or, we might not deploy to South Korea for a joint exercise with the South Korean mili tary forces. Both political parties need a trip to the woodshed for a good whupping for creating this contrived, selffoot sequestration plan. Now that the Democrats and Republicans are in this lots do when they are in a canopy to canopy aerial coming at themthey call Knock it off and recover I dont think that the two political parties are smart enough or skilled enough to prevent their crashing and burning. A knock it off call would mean that the two parties would agree to overturn the sequestration legislation and try again to reach sensible conclusions to Amer could just say, Bad idea, and scrap the sequester event. But that wont happen because Republicans see sequestration as an opportunity to reduce that hated entitlement spending. Republicans wont cut the defense budget, but they will cut social programs like Medicare and Medicaid. For the umpteenth time, its guns vs. butter. Republicans believe that re ducing spending, the austerity ap Economic ignorance at its worst. Look at what aus terity has done to the British and Spanish economies. Republicans think that Americas economy is go ing to grow at 4 to 5 percent if only we would stop spending. The problem is that the U.S. economy now competes in a global market. Most likely, the U.S. economy will continue to grow in the 1 to 2 percent range. cit spending has to end, but how is that accomplished. In my view, the solution requires a Constitutional amendment that term limits members of Congress and the President. A single four year term for rep resentatives, six years for the President and senators. The government provides funding for campaigns. Individuals can contribute $2,000 to their candidate. No corporation money. Limit campaigning to six months prior to elections. End all deductions in the tax code and have a tax schedule in which all people pay taxes. Adjust the tax rates annually to cover operating cost and anticipated the war will probably cost and increase the tax rate to cover the cost. Yep, I know that this proposal makes civil rights people crazy, but our current system of government doesnt work, and it will never work. So, unless the American people are willing to make a change in rep resentative government and pay for the goods and ending. C ORNER Jerry Cox is a retired military OXS Adult leadership required To the editor, I wish to respond to Mr. Baileys recent letter. It is true the word rapture is not in the Bible. The word resurrection is truly in the Bible. Judgement does not begin at the pulpit. Judgement begins with the church. Peter 4:17 says, For it is time for judg ment to begin at the household of God.. Romans 14:10 says, But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of beam out of thine own eye. Read Matthew 7:2-5 and your question about what happened in the garden will be answered. Adam was separated from God. He was no longer spirited minded, but carnal minded, which is death. Your question concerning who was Cains father. The answer is in Genesis 4:1, and Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bore Cain. Your question who was Cains mother. The answer to this is also in Genesis 4:1. If you have any more questions about the pastors of our churches, dont touch Gods annointed. Billy D.

Ive made enough parenting mis ta kes to last two lifetimes and I like to remind my kids that Im not done yet. But one thing Im pretty sure I did right was to take them to the woods and out on the water as soon and as often as I could. That might seem like a no-brainer, especially since Im from Blount stown. But we were living in Talla hassee when our kids were born and I wanted to make sure they learned to appreciate the outdoors the same way I did as a place to relax and feel at home. I didnt want them to be scared of the woods and I didnt want them to feel like visitors in a museum when they were there. Thats because I knew folks like that. When I was growing up, I just took it for granted that everyone hunted otherwise when I saw a kid at camp get caught up in a wait-a-minute vine, snagged by thorns in about a dozen places. Rather than patiently untan gling himself (while cussing quietly) or plowing on through (while cuss ing loudly) he just stood there. Cry ing. Utterly defeated. By a plant. I felt bad for him because Im sure he was humiliated. As I looked back on it, though, it made me realize that I never wanted that to be my kid. So, I dragged them sometimes kicking and screaming out on the boat, on the trail or to the camp every chance I got. All of them spent nights in a tent before they were old enough to walk or talk. And each one of them caught themselves. They got cold, hot, tired to it. And no matter how much they complained at times, they always got over it. Ill admit that I wasnt nearly as patient as I should have been. There were lots of times when I couldnt wait to get home and Im sure many more when they felt the same way. But all of us learned lessons we would have missed indoors. Did it pay off? The oldest, Mary Grace, actually cause she wanted to know what they looked like inside. Shes now ma joring in environmental management at UWF. MG is a bit of a hippie who likes to grow her own food and paddle around in her kayak, but shell some times set aside her vegan diet for fresh Ella has competed in the Pensacola Junior Angler a couple of times and actually placed second once. Shes a freshman at FSU and just as comfort able in the woods as she was on her high school homecoming court. two deer at age 12. Then he picked up a guitar at 13 and hasnt put it down since. But occasionally I can still get him to go shoot some squirrels with me. The important thing is that all of them have a healthy respect for nature and feel at ease and at home in the woods. I believe they also understand more about life and living than kids who only saw the outdoors through a television screen. And theyre all ing learned to rough it at an early age Nowadays, we hear a lot of folks complaining about these kids today and how they play too many video games, lack respect and discipline, and generally lead more sedentary lives than their parents or grandpar ents did. All that may be true, but I dont blame the children. I blame the adults in their lives for not taking them or teaching them to hunt their own food. It doesnt matter if theyre rich or poor, theirs are children who are truly deprived. As I said, I made a lot of mistakes in raising my children, but introduc ing them to nature certainly wasnt one of them.

Dempsey Barron Road, Phone (850) 643-5995 A 30-year-old Hosford woman was arrested Feb. 15 after failing a roadside sobriety test and refusing to give a breath sample to determine her level of intoxication. Deputy Jarrod Taylor was on stationary patrol at SR 65 and CR 67 around 4:30 a.m. when saw a Ford SUV pull into an open dirt parking lot. A passenger got out of the vehicle and the driver sped off at a high rate of speed, causing the SUV to go in circles. He stopped the vehicle as the driver, Jennifer P. Beck, was about to pull onto SR 65. The deputy noted the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from inside the vehicle as he spoke with Beck. When asked why she was driving so carelessly, she replied, Im trying to go home. She was taken into custody after failing a roadside sobriety test. When asked if she had anything on her he should know about, she stated that there was a bag of marijuana in her bra, which she then handed over to him. She was charged with DUI, refusal to submit to a BAL test and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. Teen charged with selling stolen property to recycler An 18-year-old man was arrested after a stolen trailer and a large amount of scrap metal was sold to Kyles Recycling in Hosford early last month. Jason Dickson, of Sopchoppy, was charged with dealing in stolen property of ownership to a secondary retail recycler. He was released on a $10,000 bond. According to the arrest report, Dickson and another suspect took a trailer worth around $2,500 and approximately 80 to 100 scrap metal guard rails from a Wakulla County resident. Dickson sold the stolen property for $291.60. A warrant was issued for his arrest after the Wakulla ticket with Dicksons signature and thumbprint. A 26-year-old Altha man was charged with DUI after a Calhoun County deputy was sent to Walter Potts Road Sunday morning in response to a report of a reckless driver who was all over the road and hanging out of the car vomiting. The deputy found Joshua Fry sound asleep with the vehicle running around 7:50 a.m. When Fry failed to respond to the taps on the window, Deputy Christian Smith opened the door and immediately noticed the smell of an alcoholic beverage coming from inside the vehicle. Three empty 12-ounce beer cans were in the middle console. He awakened the driver and had him step out. Fry, whose speech was very slurred, told the deputy he was headed home and had just stopped for a minute. The deputy asked Fry if he felt he had a buzz. Fry replied, Yes. I have more than a buzz. I have had way too much to drink. Are you drunk? the deputy asked. Yes, theres no hiding it, he said. Im drunk. Because the driver had difficulty maintaining his balance even while leaning against his vehicle, Smith did not have him attempt any roadside sobriety exercises. Breath samples given by Fry at the county jail resulted in readings of .146 and .139, nearly twice the legal limit of .08. He was later given a conditional release.

The law requires all school districts to create at least one career academy, called a CAPE Academy, at a middle school in each district. Fifteen districts, including Liberty County, have established their programs ahead of schedule. These middle schoolers are the youngest students ever Alan Raymonds work with Certiport has taken him to 47 countries so he says hes seen the competition around the world. Raymond calls the students trailblazers. As I travel around, theres many universities that you all just received as entrance exams for post-graduate degrees. Youre in middle school in the U.S. in Florida and if you are in the Middle admittance into a post-graduate degree in several countries in the Middle East, he said. What you guys did is really, really cool. You dont realize it but it is. And what youre doing is preparing yourselves for change. The world is changing, education is changing, careers are changing. Sen. Don Gaetz developed the legislation to create these academies in 2007, but it was tar geted for high school students. At the time, a lot students would be too hard. In 2011, the law was expanded to include a middle school academy in every district. Now the curriculum is being taught to 1,400 students in middle school CAPE Academies across Florida.

On Tuesday, the Bulldogs played host to the Franklin County Seahawks with the Dawgs winning 3. Starting on the mound for the Dawgs was Senior Hayden Swier. Hayden pitched six full innings, giving up just 2 hits while striking out 14. Hayden did a fantastic job for us on the mound tonight, said Coach Donnie Coxwell. He threw strikes and kept us in the game. Senior JoJo Durden came in and pitched a perfect 7th inning and got the win after the Dawgs scored in the bottom of the 7th to win the game. Hayden got to his pitch count so we brought in JoJo for the last inning, the coach said. At the plate the Dawgs were led by Senior Dustin Watson who was 3 for 3 with two runs scored, Junior Hunter Jacobs who was 2 for 3 and drove in the winning run. Hayden Swier added a hit and two RBI. We are not hitting the ball real well as a team right now, the coach commented. We have a couple of guys who are hitting we just have to keep pitching and playing defense until our hitting come around. This was a big win for us because it was a District game. It was important for us to start of District schedule with a win. On Thursday, the Dawgs hosted the South Walton Seahawks for another important District contest. The Dawgs won 2 0 behind a strong pitching performance by Senior JoJo Durden and some timely hitting with runners in scoring position. JoJo was dominate on the mound tonight. He struck out 16 Seahawks while walking only three in a complete game performance, accord ing to Coxwell. The best thing he did was he attacked their hitters and kept his pitch total low which allowed him to pitch deeper into the game. On offense the Dawgs were led by Dustin Watson who was two for three, and Hayden Swier who was 1 for 3 with two RBI. We are not scoring a lot of runs right now but we are scoring more than our opponents and that is the most important thing right now, the coach said. The Bulldogs game against Wakulla Friday night was canceled due to rain. That game has been rescheduled for March 29 at 7 p.m. (ET) in Crawfordville. The Bulldogs have an extremely impor tant week ahead of them with three District games. On Tuesday, the Dawgs travel to Dean Bozeman to play the Bozeman Bucks It will be a JV/Varsity double header with the JV game starting at 5 p.m. (ET). Thursday, the Dawgs will host the Port St. Joe Sharks. JV game will start at 5 p.m. Friday, the BHS Tigers will visit. JV game will start at 5 p.m. Next week is a big week for us, the coach said.

Page 14 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL FEBRUARY 27, 2013 Town Hall meeting lmed in Hosford for an upcoming episode of Finding Bigfoot by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor People from surrounding counties gathered to share some unusual stories with the crew from Animal Planets Finding Bigfoot series last week at the Wesleyan Church in Hosford. Some fans of the show joined local folks who described encounters with something they cant quite explain for the Town Hall segment featured in each episode. Those taking part in the invitation-only gathering had to sign agreements not to share what they heard inside before the show airs later in the year. describing what they believe to be Bigfoot-related sightings, they were being filmed by another crew for a behind-the-scenes special. cast including Matt Moneymaker, Cliff Barackman, Ranae Holland and James Bobo Fay met with fans and signed a few autographs. Chad Hammel, the shows coexecutive producer who has worked on 40 Finding Bigfoot episodes (including eight that have yet to air) said leaving Monday. Their efforts were met with a week of heavy rain but, We have to work with what Mother Nature gives you, he said. His show is a little more challenging than most reality shows, he said, because, Were out in the woods a lot following people around. Barackman spent a rainy night camping in Torreya State Park hoping to recreate a sighting reported last year by Stacy Brown, Sr. and Jr., father-and-son Bigfoot hunters from Crawfordville. Hammel said they had a great turnout at the Feb. 19 Town Hall meeting. Everyone was really nice and open with their stories, he said. He mentioned how two people came forward to share sighting even though they admitted they had been mocked by their friends. cautions, We never really know what will go on the show.
