This study uses tradi tional, established data, much of which was obtained from the Department and is avail able to the people of Florida at These rankings serve as a snapshot of the health of indi viduals across counties in each state. The report highlights that health is a combined work in progress across a variety of community partners. The Florida Department of Health (DOH), through its county health departments, works to gether to improve the health of all Floridians. The data used in these rankings are available in each state and in clude information related to physical environment, so cial and economic factors, health be haviors, education, crime rate/ law enforcement and clinical care. The Florida Department of Health works every day to bring together community partners around shared goals to improve health, said Dr. John Armstrong, Surgeon General and Secretary of Health. As we track our progress, we are in our efforts for better health. In Calhoun and Liberty County, there are areas of progress and continuing op portunity. For example: ing has increased over the past three years due in part to the expanding outreach of the De partments Diabetes Preven tion Recognition Program. larger community as the adult obesity rate has risen to 11% over the National benchmark over the past four years. The Department in Calhoun and Liberty County is partner ing with many stakeholders to develop and implement a local Community Health Improve ment Plan which will focus on these health indicators. Our next meeting will be held April 9 at 9 a.m.. (ET) at Veterans Me morial Civic Center. Health knows no boundaries, said Rachel Manspeaker, Administrator of the Florida Department of Health in Cal houn and Liberty County. While this report presents county level rank ings, we realize that promoting optimal health involves a broad spectrum of partners in government, educa tion, business and civic organi zations that are not necessarily limited geographically. The rankings include a snap shot of each county in Florida with a color-coded map com paring each countys overall health ranking. There are also new countylevel trend graphs detailing change over time for several of the measurements includ ing children living in poverty, unemployment, and quality of care. The Department works to protect, promote and im prove the health of all people in Flor ida through integrated state, county and community efforts. Health Department announces use of new ranking tool To the editor: A reward is offered for the return of our chickens taken from our home on Pea Ridge Road on Sat urday, March 16. You were just tak ing chickens or so you thought. But in reality you invaded our family. You took the little white hen that religiously guarded all eggs each day until they were gathered and whose mate is now look ing everywhere for her. You took the golden Lady Seminole who presided the newly acquired young hen whose sister is now having to learn how to adjust all alone. If you wanted chickens and couldnt afford them, we would have bought you some. If you wanted eggs, we would have gladly given you some. If you were hungry, we would have gladly fed you. All you had to do is knock on our door. Yes, our hens were part of our family. Not only did they provide food, but they brought a lot of pleasure to our lives. Whoever you are, you have saddened our lives and made our world less secure. Wont you re consider and bring them home? No questions asked.

After lunch the entries in the Best Cake competition were judged with the Best of Show ribbon going to Melissa Saunders and the cake made by Ann Mathis receiving blue rib bon for Best Tasting cake. St. Lukes Marianna was organized on March 7, 1838 as the result of a visit from Bishop Jack son Kemper, Missionary Bishop of Missouri and Indiana to the Florida Ter ritory. It was adopted as a station on July 3, 1838, by the Board of Missions at their meeting in New York City. Many events are be ing scheduled to mark the entire anniversary year. A pictorial DVD of church history is planned by the archives committee with the thought of making it available to raise funds to give some much needed TLC to St. Lukes 66 year old steeple. All pictures of St. Lukes events are welcome. They may be scanned and sent to St. Lukes while you wait. Please identify the pic tures by year and subjects if possible. For information about the DVD project contact Mary Robbins at (850) 209-4066 The family of Robert Flowers would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your prayers and the donations you placed in the jugs that were put in Busy Boy (Hosford), Chevron Station (Bristol and Hosford), T&P Foods (Hosford), Thompsons (Telogia) and Family Dollar (Bristol). We do realize that people are having hard times themselves, but you still gave. Thank you. For those of you who dont know Robert, he is a husband, the father of four young children and two step-children. He is the oldest son of Ruby and Sammie Dobbs of Telogia and Andy and Carol Flowers of Bristol. He is the grandson of Nora Lee Summerlin and the late Luther Summerlin of Telo gia and the late Ralston and Molly Flowers of Bristol. He has been diagnosed with testicular cancer and can no longer work. Something that is hard for him to accept for someone who worked his regular weekly job and always looked for ways of making a little extra by doing odd jobs on the weekends. Anything from mow ing grass to cutting help support his family. The jugs have been removed from the businesses for a while but could possibly be trips being made for treatments. The money has helped and has been very much appreciated, but Robert and his family also need your prayers. Please remember him and his family when you pray. May God bless each of you and thank you again.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL MARCH 20, 2013 COMMENTARY WASHINGTON Sugary drinks are killing us, but is it governments role to regulate the sale of super-sized sodas? New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says yes, citing the dramatic rise in the rates of diabetes and obe sity, conditions that contribute to illness and premature death, and strain resources in the public health system. Taxpayers foot the bill for these costly health out comes. Thats why Bloomberg believes he has the responsibility, and the power, to restrict the availability of the extra-large sugar-laden drinks that have become the new normal in restaurants, coffee shops, theaters and fast-food establishments. The 16-ounce size that Bloomberg wants to regulate would still be available at convenience stores and at the bodegas that dot the citys streets. Milk shakes would be exempted. They contain sugar but arent simply empty calories because of their dairy base. Critics howled nanny state, and the discrepan cies in the law, regulating a fountain soda purchased at a Dunkin Donuts differently from one bought at a convenience store, introduced a host of legal questions. The soda industry brought a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the mayors order, and won legal battle. Justice Milton A. Tingling, Jr., writing for the State Supreme Court of Manhattan, called Bloom bergs initiative arbitrary and capricious. He said the exceptions threaded throughout the law would result in he wrote, would be uneven enforcement, even within a particular city block, much less the city as a whole. The judge is right: Why is it okay to buy a Big Gulp at your neighborhood 7-11, but its not okay to buy a 16-ounce coffee with sugar at Dunkin Doughnuts? Put another way, though, why is it okay to ban smok ing in restaurants and public places, but its not okay to other business establishment in the country follows suit on its own because no smoking has become the new cultural norm. Bloomberg is in the last year of his third term as mayor, and he clearly wants to leave a big legacy in terms of public health and safety. He is spearheading an anti-gun violence group, contributing money to elect politicians in tune with his agenda. He has had success on his healthy living agenda, banning trans-fat in New York restaurants and requiring fast food restaurants to publish calorie counts. for a smoking ban in bars and restaurants in New York. more, and theyre not smoking in bars and restaurants anymore either. The City Council extended the ban to public parks and beaches in 2011, and there are fewer cigarette butts to be found in Central Park, but its mostly the consequence of a changed culture, not aggressive NYPD enforcement. would be pushing a ban on smoking indoors in your own home. The pushback to that from the public, and on was considering such a policy, he was prompted to come forward and say nothing like that was in the works. But hes not backing off on sugar drinks, and if he can tailor a proposal that is more uniform, and approaches the issue the way government did with smoking bans, Bloomberg could well be in the forefront of a welcome public policy revolution and cultural change. Unconstitutional COCA COLA WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND by Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Miraculously, a single government policy initiative had been either locking horns or crossing swords over on the same side, thus reminding us of the timeless yourself in, there will always be someone on your side you wish devoutly was on the other side. What, you ask, was this bold, fresh idea? The an nouncement from the Transportation Security Admin istration that, as of April 25, it will be all right for passen gers to carry pocketknives onto the nations airliners. The reaction was immediate. Liberal Democrats stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Deltas chief execu additional risk to our cabin staff and customers. Flight Attendants Unions, representing nearly 90,000 members, whose sense of outrage can be seen in these words: We are the last line of defense in aviation se curity, and time does not change the fact that we were running for John Kerreys vacated Senate seat), was introducing the No Knives Act, which would repeal the TSA policy change. The Markey-Grimm bill has been endorsed by unions representing the pilots and the air marshals who are adamantly opposed to the reintroduction of knives into their planes. We continue to bear painful witness in our nation tion. But the National Knife Association? No such group can be found. There is an American Knife and and responsible advocate for the knife-making and knife-using community, which reveals on its website that it had been instrumental in getting knives back on airliners for knife-owners. ATKI, with its head quarters in Cody, Wyo., is not a dominant inside-theBeltway force. The language of the policy change confused me. The knifes blade could not be more than centi meters long, which -I had to learn -translates to 2.36 inches. Wouldnt or .5 inches have been easier? Is the author of the regulation the kind of guy who would say that football is a game of centime ters or that a miss is good as 1,609 meters? Perhaps its just lack of imagination, but what would I need a knife for at 30,000 feet when sitting frequently in too-close proximity to a couple of hun gernails need to be cleaned out? Can I forego whit tling one more duck for a couple of hours? Yes, those peanut and pretzel bags can be pesky to open, but is my switchblade really necessary? It is as reassuring as it is confounding to know that while a Swiss Army piece is welcome, smuggling 4 ounces of Pantene or Head and Shoulders on board will bring the wrath of the authorities. TSA chief John Pistole told a House committee that the decision to allow passengers to bring small knives on planes was made because these are not things terrorists are continuing to use and that the new rule would enable security personnel to use the to search for non-metal explosives. Sorry, Chief, but shals, the pilots and every passenger I know.

It also helps to scope out the location ahead of time so you know what species are being caught, what tackle and gear is required, and what baits and rigs are being used successfully.

Similarly, if they are all casting spoons, jigs or tube lures, you should probably try the same thing, as this will help to keep the lines separated. When crossed and tangled lines do occur, its best to simply apologize and help untangle the mess rather than starting a debate about who was at fault. The third thing you can do is pay attention to whats If someone hooks a cobia, king, tarpon or other large anglers need to quickly bring in their lines and let that or jetty as needed. If you cant get your line in fast enough, at least let the other angler pass over you or under your line to avoid a tangle.

MARCH 20, 2013 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 11 OUTDOORS Mullet are the Rodney The Old Man and the Sea and Calhoun County native Jim McClellan grew An ode to the aligned but arvelous ullet M JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South The snowy plover, American oystercatcher, black skimmer and least tern lay their eggs and hatch their young on Flor ida beaches, spoil islands and rooftops. Loss and degradation of habitat are major threats to the shore birds survival, with their colonies and nesting areas becoming fewer and more fragmented. Because of their declining numbers in Florida and habitat loss, these beach-nesting birds qualify for listing as statethreatened species. The just-released draft action plan for imperiled beach-nesting birds is among the second group of draft species action plans covering 60 species that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is unveiling in 2013. The alligator snapping turtle, Florida bonneted bat, white-crowned pi geon and Florida tree snail also have newly drafted species action plans. The public is invited to review and comment on the plans at http://share1.myfwc. com/ISMP/default.aspx now through April 23, 2013. Earlier this year, the group of draft species ac tion plans that included 23 species. The agency will roll out the remaining plans later this spring and summer. For a full list of species and to review all of the draft species action plans, visit our website at MyFWC.com/Wild lifeHabitats and select Imperiled Species. The draft action plan for imperiled beach-nesting birds spells out steps to conserve these four spe cies with the ultimate goal that they no longer will be listed as threatened. The dynamic nature of Florida beaches, from natural changes caused by storms and erosion to the presence of beachgo ers and the loss of habitat, poses significant chal lenges to the survival of beach-nesting birds, said Claire Sunquist Blunden, the FWCs stakeholder coordinator for imperiled species management plan ning. The FWCs draft plan outlines commonly shared conservation measures plovers, American oyster catchers, black skimmers and least terns throughout our state. Successful con servation of beach-nesting birds will require action not only by the FWC but also the cooperation of the many different groups which use, own and care about Floridas coastal resources. They include local, state and federal government agencies, the public, private property owners, non-governmen tal organizations, busi nesses and researchers. People enjoying Flori da beaches during spring break need to be aware they should keep their distance from beachnesting birds. For more tips, go to MyFWC.com/ WildlifeHabitats and se lect Share the Beach with Beach-nesting Birds. The draft species action plans are a vital compo nent of Floridas new con servation model, which Biological Status Reviews for 60 imperiled species and now requires develop ing plans to conserve each of them. Once the 49 plans covering 60 species are revised based on public input, FWC teams will look for common themes and actions to develop Integrated Conservation Strategies. We hope the public and stakeholders will com ment on the draft species action plans and share their ideas on common themes or actions among plans, said Claire Sun quist Blunden. Finally, an Imperiled Species Management Plan will be developed that ties together the action plans covering 60 species, ad dressing the commonali ties of whats necessary to conserve all the wildlife represented in the plan.

Tolar School: Debra Clark Hosford School: Alice Mansell Liberty County School District Support Employee-of-the-Year: Debra Clark PUBLIC COMMENTS Kevin Peddie, citizen, addressed the Board about Personnel Consent items 8, 9 and 10, regarding the transfers of teachers Kammy Mann, Jack Kyler Peddie, and Trikia White from Liberty County High School to W.R. Tolar School. Peddie stated that his comments were his opinion on what he has seen and what he has observed. He wanted to clarify that the above named teachers were moved early January rather than February 12, 2013, as indicated on the agenda prior to FCAT. He believes that this was a distraction for the teachers and the students. Even though this forum is not a question or answer period Peddie asked the Board if they were alright with moving these teachers mid-year without Board approval. Peddie stated that he was not so concerned about the fact that they were moved but the process of how they were moved. He stated that he believed it showed a total lack of appreciation and consideration for the teachers and students to make these moves mid-year teachers. Peddie proceeded to ask Reddick a series of hypothetical questions even though this was not a question or answer period. Peddie further stated that he knew that this was not a question or answer session but would like to get the Boards opinion on this action. There was no comment at this time from the Board or the Superintendent. Kyle Peddie thanked Kevin Peddie for his comments. Kevin Peddie left the meeting. Kyle Peddie stated that he was going to address Kevin Peddies comments but since he left the meeting Kyle Peddie elected not to. Tharpe then stated that she wished Kevin Peddie had stayed because she did want to address his comments. She stated that it is her understanding from the training that she has received as a new Board Member that personnel actions are not for the Board to decide; those actions are for the Superintendent to make. Superintendent Uzzell thanked Tharpe for her comments and stated that these actions were brought before the Board at last months meeting. (Please see the minutes from the last meeting.) Superintendent Uzzell stated that she does not like to move teachers mid-year but in this case she felt it was in the best interest of the District for a number of reasons. Superintendent Uzzell stated that she had not received one complaint from these actions other than questions from several people asking when a new HS English teacher would be hired. All that they had not received complaints either. Principal Aaron Day stated that he wanted to address Kevin Peddies comments because he felt like Kevin Peddie insinuated that the transferred teachers were not talked to and no explanation was given to them for the transfers.
