"I believed so much in my oath that I went to war to defend this country, where I served in the Kuwait during Operation Desert Storm," he told a group of supporters and members of the media gathered to hear what he had to say. "Despite the unjustness of this situation, I remain com mitted to the rule of law and to the constitution of the Unit ed States," he said. "I remain committed to our system of jus tice and to the law enforcement truth will prevail in this case." Several Second Amendment groups have come to his aid to say he was unfairly suspended charges against a man arrested for carrying a concealed weap on. Others, like State Attorney Willie Meggs, say that's simply not the issue. He said the sher iff's arrest was the result of the jail log being altered to remove the man's name and the discov ery that paperwork connected to that arrest was missing.

JUNE 19, 2013 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 THE RIGHT THING TO DO Alicia and her longtime boyfriend, Mark "Kipper" Mallory, 35, became engaged on Valentine's Day. They are part of a blended family which includes Mallory's ex-wife, Heather and her husband, Brad Whitfield. Mark and Heather are the parents of two young daughters and share custody. Both Alicia and Brad are a big part of the girls' lives. Alicia, who worked for several years in day care and has plenty of experience with kids, loves does not plan to have children of her own. "I've got the two that I need," she says of his daughters, who are 7 and 5. Being close to the two girls, "makes you realize what's important," she said. "I was people wanting to do this (donate a kidney to Bryson)." When Alicia brought up the idea to Kipper, he didn't realize She pointed out that there are many family members with the same blood type as his two girls, should there ever be a need, and her donating a kidney to Bryson would in no way affect them. it will do for Bryson, but how it will free up his parents from their around-the-clock care that he requires and they are reluctant to hand over to others. "I think it's awesome," he said about her idea, but added, "I'm worried for her." It didn't take her long to convince him that she was sure of what needed to be done. He supported her decision and agreed with her that it was "the right thing to do." Alicia said her parents, Dee Dee Kitchen of Altha and Alan Kitchen of Compass Lake, "are proud but scared." While she admitted, "everyone has a different opinion," hers has not wavered. "I work with doctors and nurses on a regular basis," she said. "I know the risks." While there is no guarantee of how much a new kidney will extend Bryson's life, she is adamant about one thing. "If you have kids, a day, a week, a month is worth it to me." She added, "I hope my kidney is kicking enough to carry him through many years." A LIST OF DONORS Since sharing their story a few weeks ago, somewhere between 35 and 40 people called the Hatchers to offer to donate a kidney to their little boy. The youngest was 19; the oldest, 70. "Many weren't medically ideal," explained Rachel. "Others acted out of compassion before thinking it through." They honed the list down to 12 possibilities and of that group, "There Wes Harsey of the Liberty County also came forward early on. Although their blood type was compatible, all three men were ruled out because their kidney would be too large for the little boy. A second woman, Kim Milligan of Blountstown, also was found to be a testing. A third woman who appeared to be a possible match later had second thoughts and backed out, but Rachel said they were grateful that she tried, explaining, "It shows that she The lab in Miami made the choice from three likely donors and selected Alicia. FINAL TESTING Sometime around the end of the month, Alicia will travel with the Hatcher family to Miami for some intensive testing. "She's got to undergo urine tests, kidney ultrasounds, heart monitoring, a psychological evaluation and tissue typing against Bryson as well as a headto-toe assessment," explained Rachel. And for a 24-hour period, she will have to collect every drop of urine she produces to by the hospital. As they make the drive of over 500 miles one way, she's going to have to drink a lot of water and make a lot of rest stops. hoped, Alicia and Brysons surgeries will be scheduled within a month or two. She will remain in the hospital a couple of days and then return to Blountstown, where she will recuperate at home for about a week. The Hatcher family's insurance will cover most of the medical costs. Accounts have been established at both Centennial Bank and Calhoun-Liberty Credit Union to help raise money for other expenses related to the transplant. "I can't believe how brave she is," said Rachel. "She's not even hesitating. I've never seen anyone with such strength and courage." Even if there is a last-minute snag that prevents Alicia from giving her kidney to the Hatchers' son, Rachel is quick to point out, "Just her offering to do this has been a big blessing." Getting ready for a road trip Alicia Kitchen gives the thumbs up as she gets her travel gear ready to hit the road. Shell be toting that big orange jug with her for 24 hours, from Blountstown to Mi ami and at every road stop in between as can give her kidney to Bryson. A new kidney will make a world of difference for three-yearold Bryson, above, and his family.

To the editor, This is regarding our dear brother, Eugene Jacobs, and his granddaughter, Alayah. God has come for them, for He has a much bigger plan. They are no longer ours while here on earth. Eugene was proud to be Pawpaw to Breanna and Alayah, his granddaughters. He was dedicated and met to his satisfaction. He gave of himselfhe was a true and compassionate man, who gave them hope, comfort and peace. They have been branded by their conscientious in teaching Breanna and Alayah to give and serve others as he did. Alayah loved her Meme, Martha Jane and her mother, Donna Jean. She saw them as kind, thoughtful, gentle and beautiful. She saw her Pawpaw as strong, wise and different from Meme and mom. Alayah was at the age to recognize how each brought things to her life in unique ways that the other could not. Meme and mom were the role models; Pawpaw was her protector, giv Eugene was a servant to others, a generous man to all around him. He was known to diligently serve the elderly. Eugenes joy came from using his God-given talent to help the elderly in many areas. His selfsatisfaction came from helping those who had little money, because he simply could not render a bill for his services. Eugene was always there when we, the sisters, needed anything. If we needed carpenter work, a roof, plumb ing, electrical, carpet or tile work, he was there. If the pump was broken, or the pipes were clogged, he rolled up his sleeves and jumped in! We were encouraged by Eugene and knit together in love. We, the sisters, would tease Eugene by saying Good thing you have six sisters! It takes all of us to take care of you. He would smile because he was glad he had all of us caring for him in a different way. Eugene joined the United States Navy at the age of 18. ego, CA for Navy bootcamp. He would soon become a sailor on the USS Decatur, a Navy destroyer. From San Diego, he and a thousand others would cross the seas to Vietnam to defend our freedom overseas. I en the highest point of the vessel. At 19 years old, I felt as though I had lost my brother and best friend. I could not comprehend the U.S. military involvement in Vietnam. My brother served his time, separated from loved ones. I envisioned him standing watch against our enemy day and night. I prayed to God to please just send him home safe. Now, 43 years later, God has redeemed our brother and his granddaughter, Alayah. God has summoned both of them by name. God has given us many of His great and precious promises. I have been assured that God had already dealt with Eugenes heart he had accepted Gods measure of faith. We will always miss them because of what they meant to us and how precious their lives were. Their abundance of friends will miss them as well. Eugene had so many friends. It was as though they were drawn to him in some mysterious way. God has reassured us, the sisters. He has shown us His subtle signs and has whispered the soft whispers into our ears. We believe things happen for a reason. We will expect fruits from the work that God will be doing through our loss of their lives. God displayed a double rainbow that sad day. So, we believe and expect there to be double fruits since God decided to take two of our most loved in a single moment. Gods work is not done! I promise to be faithful to God, who will direct my steps so that I too, will meet Eugene and Alayah in Heaven. We will all be there together with Lavoris, Moma and Daddy and our infant brother, who was so fragile at birth. Peace be stillpray for us as you look down upon us. The Bible says that even the angels in heaven rejoice when a sinner has accepted Christ as Lord and Saviour here on earth. By the way, we are wearing the smiles Eugene and Alayah gave us. All of our love until we meet again, our sisters and brother.

As I watch the national panorama swish by, I wonder how we collectively got into this national goat rope. We are one screwed-up bunch of people. A little adult lead ership would be nice, particularly from the Congress of the United States, but fat chance of that happening. The Republicans and the loony-tunes on the right have succeeded in bring ing the United States Government to its knees, all in the name of austerity, read that as lets trash Obama. The Republican hatred for anything Obama knows no bounds. They will not do any because Obama might get some credit. The House has passed 37 bills to kill ObamaCare. I agree that ObamaCare should be reviewed and re worked. All new programs require revision, but Id like for someone opposed to ObamaCare to write a 1,000 word essay to the editor of this newspaper and explain why poor people shouldnt have access to medical care. Please explain why attempting to provide healthcare to all people in America is such a vile, evil thing. Ive lived in Europe and Asia, and I have never en countered a society that is as paranoid as Americans. About half of Americans live in fear of the federal gov ernment. The news media is complicit in this fear of the gov ernment. The constant drumbeat of the government is spying on the American people only reinforces the paranoia. Buy more guns and ammo, they are coming for us. The charge that the National Security Agency is spy ing on Americans has made for strange political bedfel lows. The liberals and the ACLU are in a dither along with the I hate government crowd who is saying, I told you so. You cant trust the government. Why is NSA collecting telephone data? Is it just pos sible, the purpose is to detect terrorist plots to blow up Americans? Particularly after 9/11, the government be lieves that it should protect American citizens and one blow up things, but in the minds of paranoid Ameri cans that is a bad thing because they believe that NSA is interested in their inane conversations about trivial nothingness. Does anyone think that there are enough people in NSA to listen to all the millions of telephone conversations and read all the e-mails that are made daily in the U.S. The NSA, the Drug Enforce ment Administration, the FBI and local police can, with just cause, get a court order and listen to telephone conversations, read e-mails and text messages, but they have to convince a judge that someone is involved in criminal or terrorist activities. If you are calling a Columbian drug lord or someone in Yemen, then its a good chance that NSA will get a court order and listen to your conversations, as they should. If you are plotting to blow up something, then the government will show up at your door, and with more guns than you have. Fights on. Republicans along with considerable help from Faux News and the mainstream media are playing the con spiracy card to the limit. Everything is a conspiracy. Monday follows Sunday. Yikes, cant possibly be true. Must be a Democrat conspiracy to manipulate the cal endar. The claim that the IRS targeting Tea Parties was an outright lie. An IRS worker came to his REPUBLICAN boss with a Tea Party application for a 501(c)(4) tax exemption. Recognizing that anything Tea Party is a political hot potato, the REPUBLICAN boss decided to send the application to the big boys at IRS headquar ters. Let them handle it. Then the REPUBLICAN boss asked how many more of these political hot potatoes were in the IRS system. The IRS employee didnt know, but the REPUBLICAN boss decided to do what we all do when we are looking and hit search. In this case, the IRS used keywords like Tea Party as a search term. The IRS was not tar geting Tea Partiers for ideological reasons, but simply This information is a matter of record and came from mony to staff members of Congressman Darrell Issas committee that is investigating the IRS. There was no targeting of the Tea Party for political purposes. All of this a right-wing fabrication. The wing nuts are alive and well. For many, it is OK tion to a journalist. This is a violation of federal law and both should be prosecuted. Journalists are not above the law. to the ACLU, would it be OK? Is it OK to give the in formation to a right-wing think tank like the Heritage Foundation? No. It is not OK to violate a federal law because someone feels the public should know. Edward Snowden, the NSA leaker, and his journalist friend from The Guardian Newspaper have decided that they know what is best for U.S. national security policy. They know what Americans should hear about NSA operations. They know that NSA surveillance is an is sue that the American people should debate in an open forum. They know best what you and I need. I dont think so. We have a representative govern ment, such as it is, and I expect the Congress to debate these issues and if required, debate in private. I dont is best for me. For certain, I dont want a reporter from The Guardian deciding what is best for me. If this loon Snowden, who thinks he is doing Gods work, had any smarts he wouldnt be in Hong Kong, read that as China, telling the Chinese that NSA has been hacking Chinese communications. People in the intelligence business know that they play cat and mouse games with each other. The Chinese know, the U.S. knows, and in many ways the intelli gence business is a gentlemens game. Ive spent time in China and Hong Kong, and the Chinese Intelligence Service knows where Snowden is, and the likelihood that anyone in the U.S will ever see Snowden again is zip, at least, not until he has spilled his guts to the Chinese. When the Chinese know ev erything that Snowden knows, then they may turn him over to the U.S., if there is anything left to turn over.

Although Jim was a few years younger than me, we had a common group of friends brought together by our church and by our love of the outdoors. Now, dont get to thinking we were pillars of the commu nity with our church attendance. We were there just enough to keep us out of trouble and our parents generally happy. We also spent a lot of time on the Apalachicola the time of year. Needless to say, we didnt have a lot of moss growing on our tires or props. Being a small community, we all also attended the same public schools together. (There were no charter schools, academies or private schools in Blountstown.) And none of us back in the late 70s and early s ever thought that our kids would one day take classes online without ever having to attend in person. Today, though, that is a common occurrence as tens of thousands of kids each year take classes through the Florida Virtual School (FLVS). And just recently, FLVS began offering a class that Im sure Jim and I and all of our buddies who loved the outdoors would have signed up for immediately. Students in Florida can now take an Outdoor Edu cation course online. Right now, many of you are thinking, Where was this when I was growing up? That would have been an easy A for sure. The sad truth is that a lot of kids today dont have the same opportunities as we did, and thats a shame. Its also why its so important that we introduce them to the outdoors any way we can. The Outdoor Education course combines the content of a boating safety course and a hunter safety course into a single half-credit course. For students in the public school system, the course also counts towards the physical education and on-line course requirements that are necessary for graduation. After successfully completing the course, the student will receive a Boating Safety Education work with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva tion Commission, the student will receive a Hunter Safety card. Boating safety is required for anyone born on or after January 1, 1988, if you want to operate a boat with a 10 horsepower motor or larger. Hunter safe ty is mandatory for anyone born after June 1, 1975 who wants to purchase a hunting license in Florida. Students signing up for the course must be 12 years old or older. By the way folks, the course is FREE!! If you have a son or daughter, niece or nephew, or just a family friend, make sure you tell them about this great opportunity. If they attend a Florida public school, private school or are home-schooled in Florida, they can sign up and take the course. To learn more, visit Florida Virtual School at www.

Lane also works tirelessly to pass along his pas Mexico Beach is one of those places where Ill always be about eight or nine years old. The last time my family gathered there, I noticed that it has the same effect on my brothers, as I watched one body surf in the pouring rain and joined another furiously digging for sand And all of us spent at least some time splashing in the In fact, if you looked past the grandchildren, added some hair and replaced the Penn reels with Zebcos, it could just as well have been 1972. The occasion was our bien nial version of a family reunion, when my brothers and I, along with our families, descend on that corner of Gulf County. (Technically, its Beacon Hill because Mexico Beach ends at the Bay County line, but what ever.) We go down to the beach mainly because we spent every summer of our adolescence there in a cottage our grandpar ents owned. As family legend has it, they were given the lot in 1910 under the condition that they would build on it within a year. Back then, the goal was to attract more people to the coast and develop land that was oth erwise ill-suited for farming or even growing timber. A century later, I can report that the effort was wildly suc cessful. The sleepy little village where I was exiled as a child has become a booming beach town, complete with condos, hotels and droves of tourists. Even neighboring Port St. Joe has traded in its signature pa per mill for high-end cloth ing shops, resorts and marinas that house expensive pleasure boats. People who would have gagged on the smell of that town four decades ago now make reservations a year in ad vance to visit. Our family hasnt owned a house at Mexico Beach since 1994 and both my parents have sons have multiplied to become a family of 33, counting spous es, children and grandchildren. So when we have a chance to be together, it inevitably means trading stories and sharing memories about the way things used to be. At the risk of sound ing sappy (thank you, Amy), here is a random collection of things I remember from the days before Mexico Beach was discovered by the masses: Going to the Gulf Station: Miss Marguerite owned this all-purpose store and every body down there had a charge account. By volume, I think she probably sold a lot more beer than gasoline, but she also had a pinball machine where I spent many hours and quarters. Catching whiting: Im not sure if it was possible to cast a dead shrimp in the surf back then without catching one. The other most prevalent species shark would come by just to keep you guessing. Driving down to Bullet Hill: This was a long, unin habited stretch of beach on the Tyndall AFB reservation. It had old bullets in the lagoon there. You needed a fourwheel-drive to get across the soft sand, but the would usually be treated to grilled hamburgers ning. Catching blue crabs: Speaking of Bullet Hill, there were so many crabs there, you could catch them with a net in the surf. Daddy would put a couple of us on the hood of the truck with our nets and drive along the beach until we saw one. The goal was to see them before he did. Otherwise, he would tap the brakes without warning and launch you into the sand. Bringing drinking water: Water from the shallow well at our cottage was rancid, plain lon milk jugs with water from Blountstown to bring with us. My father commuted back and forth every day, so he was re sponsible for our resupply over the course of the summer. Taking cold showers: At my grandparents cottage, the shower was outside and en closed on three sides (you know, for privacy). There was no hot water, so you wanted to water from the pipes before the ice cold well water got there. Bathing rarely: Reference the aforesaid shower, I admit I speak from very limited experi ence. I spent most of every day in the water and in the mind of a young boy, thats as good (if not better) than an actual bath or shower. I got in the shower long enough to knock the sand off of me and then only be cause I would get in trouble for tracking it in the house. Using shells for ashtrays: My father and lots of other adults smoked back then. Thus JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South See MEXICO BEACH TIME MACHINE continued on page 17 Mexico Beach TIME MACHINE

When an undersea oil well blew out 50 miles off the Loui siana coast on April 20, 2010 and caused an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig above it (killing 11 workers), no one knew that an even big ger disaster was yet to come. Over the next three months, 4.9 million gallons of crude poured into the water before BP could get the wellhead capped to stop Mexico. According to BP, which has already spent $14 billion on clean-up and restoration, the conditions prior to the disaster. No company has done more, faster to respond to an indus trial accident than BP did in response to the Deepwater Ho rizon accident in 2010, reports the company. But not everybody sees the situation that way. Many en vironmentalists are concerned that, while BP has done a thorough job removing visi ble oil from the water column and surface, little has been done to repair damage to ma rine life and ecosystems. Three years after the ini tial explosion, the impacts of the disaster continue to un fold, says Doug Inkley, se nior scientist at the National Wildlife Federation (NWF). A recent report by the group found that the three-year-old spill is still having a serious negative effect on wildlife pop dolphin deaths in the region have remained above average every single month since the of 2013, infant dolphins were found dead at six times pre-spill average rates. Says Inkley: These ongoing deaths particularly in an apex pred ator like the dolphinare a strong indication that there is something amiss with the only ones suffering. NWF found that more than 1,700 sea turtles were stranded in tween May 2010 and November 2012almost three times the pre-spill rate for the animals. Researchers have also detected changes in the cellular func chain. And a coral colony seven miles from the offending well head struggles due to oil and dispersants compromising its ability to rebuild itself. The oil disaster highlighted the gaps in our understand says Florida State University oceanographer Ian MacDon ald. What frustrates me is how little has changed over the past three years. In many cases, funding for critical research has even been even been cut, lim iting our understanding of the MacDonald and others are optimistic that a federal court further damages in a civil trial now underway. NWF says that substantially more money is needed to carry out restoration efforts vital to the biological and economic stability of the lic relations blitz by BP, this David Muth.

Scalloping in St. Joe Bay: I dont know why we didnt use a mask and snorkel back then, but we didnt. So scalloping was a ter along the shallow grass beds in an on one of the millions of stingrays that lived there. To me, scalloping meant a whole day of excruciating boredom, followed by an evening expending 50 calories of effort to extract 10 calories of meat from their shells. The big innovation was a glass-bottomed box and a scooper (a broomstick with a wire basket on the end) that allowed you to pick up scallops without having to bend over. This probably explains why there were no limits on scallops back then. Launching at Presnells Fish Camp: Mr. and Mrs. Presnell were still alive in those days and they ran a tight ship when it came to putting your boat in at their St. Joe Bay ramp. I watched many a tour ist get schooled by Mr. Presnell about dawdling and holding up the line. (There have been many days since then at many other ramps when I actively tried to sum mon his spirit!) Living with cockroaches: Nowadays, if I see a cockroach in my house, I call the exterminator. At the beach, they were just part of the natural fauna. Back then, there was nothing I wouldnt eat just because a roach had touched it. Which was fortunate because oth erwise I would have gone hungry. Crossing US 98: My parents feared the highway in front of our house more than anything on the other side in the water. Log trucks still used the road regularly and no one slowed down on that stretch. Stepping on sandspurs: As suming you made it across 98 without becoming a hood orna ment, you still had to navigate about 50 yards of old boards and carpet to get to the beach. Step off the path and you were in a mine down there barefoot was out of the question, so we had dozens of rub of which matched, by the way.) Doing nothing: Especially during the week, there just werent many people at Mexico Beach and almost none who were my age. As a result, I got comfortable with played in the sand and swam, but there were lots of times when I just existed. I can remember sitting in the swing on the front porch, day dreaming and writing scripts for my life that never quite panned out. (Surprisingly, I never fanta sized about doing marketing for a tech company.) I took it for granted that, no matter what else happened, I would always have my family and we would always have the beach. As it turns out, thats true. But like everything else, both are much dif ferent now. I miss the old days and I miss my parents. But Im thrilled to see my great nieces and nephews play ing in the waves and sand just like their parents and grandparents did. And I wouldnt trade that for all the cockroaches and cold showers in the world. LIBERTY Post & Barn Pole, Inc.

"I believed so much in my oath that I went to war to defend this country, where I served in the Kuwait during Operation Desert Storm," he told a group of supporters and members of the media gathered to hear what he had to say. "Despite the unjustness of this situation, I remain com mitted to the rule of law and to the constitution of the Unit ed States," he said. "I remain committed to our system of jus tice and to the law enforcement truth will prevail in this case." Several Second Amendment groups have come to his aid to say he was unfairly suspended charges against a man arrested for carrying a concealed weap on. Others, like State Attorney Willie Meggs, say that's simply not the issue. He said the sher iff's arrest was the result of the jail log being altered to remove the man's name and the discov ery that paperwork connected to that arrest was missing.BECOME A VOLUNTEERFlorida Guardian ad Litem Foundation mother, stealing car grand theft auto and aggravated battery on a vic tim over 65 years of age after an altercation at the According to the arrest report from the Liberty to the home they share on Donar Circle and de manded money.

JUNE 19, 2013 / THE CALHOUN-LIBER TY JOURNAL Page 3 THE RIGHT THING TO DO Alicia and her longtime boyfriend, Mark "Kipper" Mallory, 35, became engaged on Valentine's Day. They are part of a blended family which includes Mallory's ex-wife, Heather and her husband, Brad Whitfield. Mark and Heather are the parents of two young daughters and share custody. Both Alicia and Brad are a big part of the girls' lives. Alicia, who worked for several years in day care and has plenty of experience with kids, loves does not plan to have children of her own. "I've got the two that I need," she says of his daughters, who are 7 and 5. Being close to the two girls, "makes you realize what's important," she said. "I was people wanting to do this (donate a kidney to Bryson)." When Alicia brought up the idea to Kipper, he didn't realize She pointed out that there are many family members with the same blood type as his two girls, should there ever be a need, and her donating a kidney to Bryson would in no way affect them. it will do for Bryson, but how it will free up his parents from their around-the-clock care that he requires and they are reluctant to hand over to others. "I think it's awesome," he said about her idea, but added, "I'm worried for her." It didn't take her long to convince him that she was sure of what needed to be done. He supported her decision and agreed with her that it was "the right thing to do." Alicia said her parents, Dee Dee Kitchen of Altha and Alan Kitchen of Compass Lake, "are proud but scared." While she admitted, "everyone has a different opinion," hers has not wavered. "I work with doctors and nurses on a regular basis," she said. "I know the risks." While there is no guarantee of how much a new kidney will extend Bryson's life, she is adamant about one thing. "If you have kids, a day, a week, a month is worth it to me." She added, "I hope my kidney is kicking enough to carry him through many years." A LIST OF DONORS Since sharing their story a few weeks ago, somewhere between 35 and 40 people called the Hatchers to offer to donate a kidney to their little boy. The youngest was 19; the oldest, 70. "Many weren't medically ideal," explained Rachel. "Others acted out of compassion before thinking it through." They honed the list down to 12 possibilities and of that group, "There Wes Harsey of the Liberty County also came forward early on. Although their blood type was compatible, all three men were ruled out because their kidney would be too large for the little boy. A second woman, Kim Milligan of Blountstown, also was found to be a testing. A third woman who appeared to be a possible match later had second thoughts and backed out, but Rachel said they were grateful that she tried, explaining, "It shows that she The lab in Miami made the choice from three likely donors and selected Alicia. FINAL TESTING Sometime around the end of the month, Alicia will travel with the Hatcher family to Miami for some intensive testing. "She's got to undergo urine tests, kidney ultrasounds, heart monitoring, a psychological evaluation and tissue typing against Bryson as well as a headto-toe assessment," explained Rachel. And for a 24-hour period, she will have to collect every drop of urine she produces to by the hospital. As they make the drive of over 500 miles one way, she's going to have to drink a lot of water and make a lot of rest stops. hoped, Alicia and Brysons surgeries will be scheduled within a month or two. She will remain in the hospital a couple of days and then return to Blountstown, where she will recuperate at home for about a week.

To the editor, This is regarding our dear brother, Eugene Jacobs, and his granddaughter, Alayah. God has come for them, for He has a much bigger plan. They are no longer ours while here on earth. Eugene was proud to be Pawpaw to Breanna and Alayah, his granddaughters. He was dedicated and met to his satisfaction. He gave of himselfhe was a true and compassionate man, who gave them hope, comfort and peace. They have been branded by their conscientious in teaching Breanna and Alayah to give and serve others as he did. Alayah loved her Meme, Martha Jane and her mother, Donna Jean. She saw them as kind, thoughtful, gentle and beautiful. She saw her Pawpaw as strong, wise and different from Meme and mom. Alayah was at the age to recognize how each brought things to her life in unique ways that the other could not. Meme and mom were the role models; Pawpaw was her protector, giv Eugene was a servant to others, a generous man to all around him. He was known to diligently serve the elderly. Eugenes joy came from using his God-given talent to help the elderly in many areas. His selfsatisfaction came from helping those who had little money, because he simply could not render a bill for his services. Eugene was always there when we, the sisters, needed anything. If we needed carpenter work, a roof, plumb ing, electrical, carpet or tile work, he was there. If the pump was broken, or the pipes were clogged, he rolled up his sleeves and jumped in! We were encouraged by Eugene and knit together in love. We, the sisters, would tease Eugene by saying Good thing you have six sisters! It takes all of us to take care of you. He would smile because he was glad he had all of us caring for him in a different way. Eugene joined the United States Navy at the age of 18. ego, CA for Navy bootcamp. He would soon become a sailor on the USS Decatur, a Navy destroyer. From San Diego, he and a thousand others would cross the seas to Vietnam to defend our freedom overseas. I en the highest point of the vessel. At 19 years old, I felt as though I had lost my brother and best friend. I could not comprehend the U.S. military involvement in Vietnam. My brother served his time, separated from loved ones. I envisioned him standing watch against our enemy day and night. I prayed to God to please just send him home safe. Now, 43 years later, God has redeemed our brother and his granddaughter, Alayah. God has summoned both of them by name. God has given us many of His great and precious promises. I have been assured that God had already dealt with Eugenes heart he had accepted Gods measure of faith. We will always miss them because of what they meant to us and how precious their lives were. Their abundance of friends will miss them as well. Eugene had so many friends. It was as though they were drawn to him in some mysterious way. God has reassured us, the sisters. He has shown us His subtle signs and has whispered the soft whispers into our ears. We believe things happen for a reason. We will expect fruits from the work that God will be doing through our loss of their lives. God displayed a double rainbow that sad day. So, we believe and expect there to be double fruits since God decided to take two of our most loved in a single moment. Gods work is not done! I promise to be faithful to God, who will direct my steps so that I too, will meet Eugene and Alayah in Heaven. We will all be there together with Lavoris, Moma and Daddy and our infant brother, who was so fragile at birth. Peace be stillpray for us as you look down upon us. The Bible says that even the angels in heaven rejoice when a sinner has accepted Christ as Lord and Saviour here on earth. By the way, we are wearing the smiles Eugene and Alayah gave us. All of our love until we meet again, our sisters and brother.

As I watch the national panorama swish by, I wonder how we collectively got into this national goat rope. We are one screwed-up bunch of people. A little adult lead ership would be nice, particularly from the Congress of the United States, but fat chance of that happening. The Republicans and the loony-tunes on the right have succeeded in bringing the United States Government to its knees, all in the name of austerity, read that as lets trash Obama. The Republican hatred for anything Obama knows no bounds. They will not do any because Obama might get some credit. The House has passed 37 bills to kill ObamaCare. I agree that ObamaCare should be reviewed and reworked. All new programs require revision, but Id like for someone opposed to ObamaCare to write a 1,000 word essay to the editor of this newspaper and explain why poor people shouldnt have access to medical care. Please explain why attempting to provide healthcare to all people in America is such a vile, evil thing. Ive lived in Europe and Asia, and I have never encountered a society that is as paranoid as Americans. About half of Americans live in fear of the federal gov ernment. The news media is complicit in this fear of the gov ernment. The constant drumbeat of the government is spying on the American people only reinforces the paranoia. Buy more guns and ammo, they are coming for us. The charge that the National Security Agency is spy ing on Americans has made for strange political bedfel lows. The liberals and the ACLU are in a dither along with the I hate government crowd who is saying, I told you so. You cant trust the government. Why is NSA collecting telephone data? Is it just possible, the purpose is to detect terrorist plots to blow up Americans? Particularly after 9/11, the government be lieves that it should protect American citizens and one blow up things, but in the minds of paranoid Ameri cans that is a bad thing because they believe that NSA is interested in their inane conversations about trivial nothingness. Does anyone think that there are enough people in NSA to listen to all the millions of telephone conversations and read all the e-mails that are made daily in the U.S. The NSA, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI and local police can, with just cause, get a court order and listen to telephone conversations, read e-mails and text messages, but they have to convince a judge that someone is involved in criminal or terrorist activities. If you are calling a Columbian drug lord or someone in Yemen, then its a good chance that NSA will get a court order and listen to your conversations, as they should. If you are plotting to blow up something, then the government will show up at your door, and with more guns than you have. Fights on. Republicans along with considerable help from Faux News and the mainstream media are playing the con spiracy card to the limit. Everything is a conspiracy. Monday follows Sunday. Yikes, cant possibly be true. Must be a Democrat conspiracy to manipulate the cal endar. The claim that the IRS targeting Tea Parties was an outright lie. An IRS worker came to his REPUBLICAN boss with a Tea Party application for a 501(c)(4) tax exemption. Recognizing that anything Tea Party is a political hot potato, the REPUBLICAN boss decided to send the application to the big boys at IRS headquar ters. Let them handle it. Then the REPUBLICAN boss asked how many more of these political hot potatoes were in the IRS system. The IRS employee didnt know, but the REPUBLICAN boss decided to do what we all do when we are looking and hit search. In this case, the IRS used keywords like Tea Party as a search term. The IRS was not tar geting Tea Partiers for ideological reasons, but simply This information is a matter of record and came from mony to staff members of Congressman Darrell Issas committee that is investigating the IRS. There was no targeting of the Tea Party for political purposes. All of this a right-wing fabrication. The wing nuts are alive and well. For many, it is OK tion to a journalist. This is a violation of federal law and both should be prosecuted. Journalists are not above the law. to the ACLU, would it be OK? Is it OK to give the in formation to a right-wing think tank like the Heritage Foundation? No. It is not OK to violate a federal law because someone feels the public should know. Edward Snowden, the NSA leaker, and his journalist friend from The Guardian Newspaper have decided that they know what is best for U.S. national security policy. They know what Americans should hear about NSA operations. They know that NSA surveillance is an is sue that the American people should debate in an open forum. They know best what you and I need. I dont think so. We have a representative government, such as it is, and I expect the Congress to debate these issues and if required, debate in private. I dont is best for me. For certain, I dont want a reporter from The Guardian deciding what is best for me. If this loon Snowden, who thinks he is doing Gods work, had any smarts he wouldnt be in Hong Kong, read that as China, telling the Chinese that NSA has been hacking Chinese communications. People in the intelligence business know that they play cat and mouse games with each other. The Chinese know, the U.S. knows, and in many ways the intelli gence business is a gentlemens game. Ive spent time in China and Hong Kong, and the Chinese Intelligence Service knows where Snowden is, and the likelihood that anyone in the U.S will ever see Snowden again is zip, at least, not until he has spilled his guts to the Chinese. When the Chinese know everything that Snowden knows, then they may turn him over to the U.S., if there is anything left to turn over.

Although Jim was a few years younger than me, we had a common group of friends brought together by our church and by our love of the outdoors. Now, dont get to thinking we were pillars of the commu nity with our church attendance. We were there just enough to keep us out of trouble and our parents generally happy. We also spent a lot of time on the Apalachicola the time of year. Needless to say, we didnt have a lot of moss growing on our tires or props. Being a small community, we all also attended the same public schools together. (There were no charter schools, academies or private schools in Blountstown.) And none of us back in the late 70s and early s ever thought that our kids would one day take classes online without ever having to attend in person. Today, though, that is a common occurrence as tens of thousands of kids each year take classes through the Florida Virtual School (FLVS). And just recently, FLVS began offering a class that Im sure Jim and I and all of our buddies who loved the outdoors would have signed up for immediately. Students in Florida can now take an Outdoor Edu cation course online. Right now, many of you are thinking, Where was this when I was growing up? That would have been an easy A for sure. The sad truth is that a lot of kids today dont have the same opportunities as we did, and thats a shame. Its also why its so important that we introduce them to the outdoors any way we can. The Outdoor Education course combines the content of a boating safety course and a hunter safety course into a single half-credit course. For students in the public school system, the course also counts towards the physical education and on-line course requirements that are necessary for graduation. After successfully completing the course, the student will receive a Boating Safety Education work with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva tion Commission, the student will receive a Hunter Safety card. Boating safety is required for anyone born on or after January 1, 1988, if you want to operate a boat with a 10 horsepower motor or larger. Hunter safety is mandatory for anyone born after June 1, 1975 who wants to purchase a hunting license in Florida. Students signing up for the course must be 12 years old or older. By the way folks, the course is FREE!! If you have a son or daughter, niece or nephew, or just a family friend, make sure you tell them about this great opportunity. If they attend a Florida public school, private school or are home-schooled in Florida, they can sign up and take the course. To learn more, visit Florida Virtual School at www.

The last time my family gathered there, I noticed that it has the same effect on my brothers, as I watched one body surf in the pouring rain and joined another furiously digging for sand And all of us spent at least some time splashing in the In fact, if you looked past the grandchildren, added some hair and replaced the Penn reels with Zebcos, it could just as well have been 1972. The occasion was our bien nial version of a family reunion, when my brothers and I, along with our families, descend on that corner of Gulf County. (Technically, its Beacon Hill because Mexico Beach ends at the Bay County line, but what ever.) We go down to the beach mainly because we spent every summer of our adolescence there in a cottage our grandpar ents owned. As family legend has it, they were given the lot in 1910 under the condition that they would build on it within a year. Back then, the goal was to attract more people to the coast and develop land that was oth erwise ill-suited for farming or even growing timber. A century later, I can report that the effort was wildly suc cessful. The sleepy little village where I was exiled as a child has become a booming beach town, complete with condos, hotels and droves of tourists. Even neighboring Port St. Joe has traded in its signature pa per mill for high-end cloth ing shops, resorts and marinas that house expensive pleasure boats. People who would have gagged on the smell of that town four decades ago now make reservations a year in advance to visit. Our family hasnt owned a house at Mexico Beach since 1994 and both my parents have sons have multiplied to become a family of 33, counting spous es, children and grandchildren. So when we have a chance to be together, it inevitably means trading stories and sharing memories about the way things used to be. At the risk of sound ing sappy (thank you, Amy), here is a random collection of things I remember from the days before Mexico Beach was discovered by the masses: Going to the Gulf Station: Miss Marguerite owned this all-purpose store and every body down there had a charge account. By volume, I think she probably sold a lot more beer than gasoline, but she also had a pinball machine where I spent many hours and quarters. Catching whiting: Im not sure if it was possible to cast a dead shrimp in the surf back then without catching one. The other most prevalent species shark would come by just to keep you guessing. Driving down to Bullet Hill: This was a long, unin habited stretch of beach on the Tyndall AFB reservation. It had old bullets in the lagoon there. You needed a fourwheel-drive to get across the soft sand, but the would usually be treated to grilled hamburgers ning. Catching blue crabs: Speaking of Bullet Hill, there were so many crabs there, you could catch them with a net in the surf. Daddy would put a couple of us on the hood of the truck with our nets and drive along the beach until we saw one. The goal was to see them before he did. Otherwise, he would tap the brakes without warning and launch you into the sand. Bringing drinking water: Water from the shallow well at our cottage was rancid, plain lon milk jugs with water from Blountstown to bring with us. My father commuted back and forth every day, so he was re sponsible for our resupply over the course of the summer. Taking cold showers: At my grandparents cottage, the shower was outside and enclosed on three sides (you know, for privacy). There was no hot water, so you wanted to water from the pipes before the ice cold well water got there. Bathing rarely: Reference the aforesaid shower, I admit I speak from very limited experi ence. I spent most of every day in the water and in the mind of a young boy, thats as good (if not better) than an actual bath or shower. I got in the shower long enough to knock the sand off of me and then only be cause I would get in trouble for tracking it in the house. Using shells for ashtrays: My father and lots of other adults smoked back then. Thus JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South See MEXICO BEACH TIME MACHINE continued on page 17 Mexico Beach TIME MACHINE

When an undersea oil well blew out 50 miles off the Louisiana coast on April 20, 2010 and caused an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig above it (killing 11 workers), no one knew that an even big ger disaster was yet to come. Over the next three months, 4.9 million gallons of crude poured into the water before BP could get the wellhead capped to stop Mexico. According to BP, which has already spent $14 billion on clean-up and restoration, the conditions prior to the disaster. No company has done more, faster to respond to an indus trial accident than BP did in response to the Deepwater Horizon accident in 2010, reports the company. But not everybody sees the situation that way. Many en vironmentalists are concerned that, while BP has done a thorough job removing visible oil from the water column and surface, little has been done to repair damage to marine life and ecosystems. Three years after the ini tial explosion, the impacts of the disaster continue to un fold, says Doug Inkley, senior scientist at the National Wildlife Federation (NWF). A recent report by the group found that the three-year-old spill is still having a serious negative effect on wildlife pop dolphin deaths in the region have remained above average every single month since the of 2013, infant dolphins were found dead at six times pre-spill average rates. Says Inkley: These ongoing deaths particularly in an apex pred ator like the dolphinare a strong indication that there is something amiss with the only ones suffering. NWF found that more than 1,700 sea turtles were stranded in tween May 2010 and November 2012almost three times the pre-spill rate for the animals. Researchers have also detected changes in the cellular func chain. And a coral colony seven miles from the offending well head struggles due to oil and dispersants compromising its ability to rebuild itself. The oil disaster highlighted the gaps in our understand says Florida State University oceanographer Ian MacDonald. What frustrates me is how little has changed over the past three years. In many cases, funding for critical research has even been even been cut, lim iting our understanding of the MacDonald and others are optimistic that a federal court further damages in a civil trial now underway. NWF says that substantially more money is needed to carry out restoration efforts vital to the biological and economic stability of the lic relations blitz by BP, this David Muth.

FWC treats Bay County lakes where invasive plant found aquatic plant has been found in two small adjoining lakes in Bay County near Bayhead Landing and close to Deer Point Lake. Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva tion Commissions (FWC) Invasive Plant Management Section spent several hours Wednesday treating the two lakes off Deerwood Avenue. The lakes total about 4 acres. They treated the lakes with an EPA-registered herbicide The possession of giant salvinia is prohibited under state and federal law, although it is sometimes offered for sale or trade, mainly over the Internet. People dumping aquariums or plants escaping from backyard ponds are common ways for the plant to spread. The source of the current infestation is unknown. However it got here, this plant has the potential to get into Deer Point Lake and cause problems similar to the problems it is causing in states west of here, said Matt Phillips, one of two FWC staff treating the lake. The goal of the program is to eradicate the plant before it can spread to other waters. Phillips said giant salvinia is already established in several foreign countries. Everywhere that gi ant salvinia has become established outside of its native range it causes problems. It grows rapidly, native vegetation. It forms dense surface mats can clog water intakes and drainages. We would like people to be aware of the problem so we can curtail any potential spread of the plant, Phillips said. The FWC asks anyone who thinks theyve seen the highly invasive plant to contact the FWCs Invasive Plant Management Section at (850) 617-9430.

Scalloping in St. Joe Bay: I dont know why we didnt use a mask and snorkel back then, but we didnt. So scalloping was a ter along the shallow grass beds in an on one of the millions of stingrays that lived there. To me, scalloping meant a whole day of excruciating boredom, followed by an evening expending 50 calories of effort to extract 10 calories of meat from their shells. The big innovation was a glass-bottomed box and a scooper (a broomstick with a wire basket on the end) that allowed you to pick up scallops without having to bend over. This probably explains why there were no limits on scallops back then. Launching at Presnells Fish Camp: Mr. and Mrs. Presnell were still alive in those days and they ran a tight ship when it came to putting your boat in at their St. Joe Bay ramp. I watched many a tour ist get schooled by Mr. Presnell about dawdling and holding up the line. (There have been many days since then at many other ramps when I actively tried to sum mon his spirit!) Living with cockroaches: Nowadays, if I see a cockroach in my house, I call the exterminator. At the beach, they were just part of the natural fauna. Back then, there was nothing I wouldnt eat just because a roach had touched it. Which was fortunate because otherwise I would have gone hungry. Crossing US 98: My parents feared the highway in front of our house more than anything on the other side in the water. Log trucks still used the road regularly and no one slowed down on that stretch. Stepping on sandspurs: As suming you made it across 98 without becoming a hood ornament, you still had to navigate about 50 yards of old boards and carpet to get to the beach. Step off the path and you were in a mine down there barefoot was out of the question, so we had dozens of rubof which matched, by the way.) Doing nothing: Especially during the week, there just werent many people at Mexico Beach and almost none who were my age. As a result, I got comfortable with played in the sand and swam, but there were lots of times when I just existed. I can remember sitting in the swing on the front porch, daydreaming and writing scripts for my life that never quite panned out. (Surprisingly, I never fanta sized about doing marketing for a tech company.) I took it for granted that, no matter what else happened, I would always have my family and we would always have the beach. As it turns out, thats true. But like everything else, both are much dif ferent now. I miss the old days and I miss my parents. But Im thrilled to see my great nieces and nephews play ing in the waves and sand just like their parents and grandparents did. And I wouldnt trade that for all the cockroaches and cold showers in the world. LIBERTY Post & Barn Pole, Inc.
