His skin was cold and stiff. CRIME LAB INVESTIGATION This wasnt something we wanted to tackle by ourselves, said Nichols. The Florida Department of Law Enforcements Mobile Crime Lab was called to the scene. There was a trail of blood from his bedroom to his living room, according to Nichols. He said there was plenty of blood throughout the home due to arterial spurting. It was a graphic scene, he said, explaining, Thats why we treated it as if it were a homicide. The FDLE crime lab arrived later that evening and remained for about six hours to process the scene, which included photographing the inside of the trailer and doing extensive crime scene mapping, according to Nichols. Investigator Becky Reid of the Bay came to examine the body at the scene. Tracking dog teams from the prisons in Calhoun and Liberty County were called out to conduct a perimeter search as well. There were no tracks of anyone coming from or going to the property, said Nichols. The body was removed early Friday morning and taken to the medical examiners office in Panama City. Following the autopsy Saturday morning, the medical examiner determined that Ryan took his own life by cutting the main artery in his right arm with a pocket knife. MANY INJURIES Ryan had numerous wounds on his body, including lacerations where he had made what the medical examiner called hesitation cuts on his left arm before making the fatal cut on the inside of his right arm. Nichols said Ryan had limited mobility and often fell down. He was in the hospital just two days prior and was on a lot of medication, according to Nichols. He had a lot of injuries scrapes and said it appeared Ryans pet bulldog had caused the scratches around his neck and arm area, as well as several puncture wounds on his legs post-mortem. It is not an aggressive dog, Nichols pointed out and suggested, Maybe the dog was trying to get him to respond. It was estimated that Ryan had died 12 to 18 hours before he was found. There was no blood splatter to indicate an altercation, nothing to suggest foul play, he said. The investigation remains open pending the results of toxicology tests. Nichols described Ryan as kind of a loner whose main contact was with his sister and his pastor. calls about Ryan previously including two this month. On June 14, a deputy responded to his home after learning that he had missed his driveway and driven his car into a culvert. It was reported that Ryan appeared incoherent at the time and was believed to be heavily medicated. On June 18, his sister called for an ambulance and explained that her brother, who was heavily medicated, was repeatedly falling and had scratches all over his body. Nichols report noted that he found an empty prescription bottle of Xanax he said indicated Ryan was abusing his medication. His sister said he suffered a stroke in 2005 that left him paralyzed on his left side and in recent months, he had been getting worse. CALIFORNIA TO FLORIDA Ryans parents moved from California and then urged his sister to come to Calhoun County as well. Sis, you need to come out here. Its real nice...the people are so friendly, he told her. I came out here in 1989, she said, and added: I think it was one of the best things Ive done in my life. She said the support of good neighbors and friends is helping her handle the loss. For now, shell be taking care of the pet her brother left behind a bull mastiff named Booger.

Floridas rate was down 0.1 and continues to fall below the national average, Governor Scott said, Each month we continue to distance ourselves from the national unemployment rate and it is clear we are succeeding in growing opportunities for Florida families to pursue the American Dream. Once again, Floridas unem ployment rate is well below the national average. While Florida communities have experienced some incredible successes, well continue working tirelessly to provide jobs to families across the Sunshine State. We had a very successful trip this week to the 50th Paris Air Show where we worked to grow Florida as a leader in aerospace and create more jobs and opportuni ties for Florida families. I was proud to announce that on the Space Coast. As we continue to announce new opportunities across our state like Vision Systems, it underscores that the policies we are implementing to create more jobs for our families are working. Since December 2010, Floridas statewide unem ployment rate has dropped four percentage points, from the same timeframe, the national unemployment rate Floridas improving economic climate continues to outpace the national recovery.

Box 536, Bristol 32321 To the editor: I have always considered myself as a peacemaker of sorts. Maybe its an inherent Woodham trait, but I also believe that it is a gift from God. I have never real world it cannot always be seen through rose colored glasses. My entire adult life has been anything but peaceful, but I have learned to cope, adjust, and take one day, one hour, or sometimes just one minute at a time. In dealing with past life struggles, especially through the serious, complex medical issues our girls have faced over the past 14+ years, I have learned to be an eternal optimist. Several years ago, when faced with telling our eight-year-old that her brain tumor had returned after being tumor free since age three, I received some very valuable advice from Dr. Darryl Duggar. He told me to model the behavior that I wanted to see in her, as she would be watching us as her parents to determine how she would react to the situation. That advice has always stayed with me. I always try to remember that we, as parents, are being listened to and watched closely! I am very disturbed and disheartened by behaviors I have witnessed by some adults most of whom are parents. There is no doubt that we have some very heated issues ripping through our small county right now, but quite frankly, I dont care which side anyone is on or what anyone thinks the truth is. What I do care about is OUR County Liberty County and the kind of legacy we are leaving for our children who are our next generation of leaders. In times of turmoil they are observing us even more closely, and I am greatly concerned about what they are learning from us. The negative behavior I am referring to is that of a trucebreaker, which is the exact opposite of a peace maker. Their primary concern is their own self-interest, and they have little or nothing to do with those who do not agree with them. Consequently, relationships take divided. This hurt can become so deep that there is little or no chance for resolution. Sadly for us and for our children if we dont get a grip very quickly, these hurts will be so profound that they will be passed along to future generations. The character of a peacemaker is one of self-denial. They tend to overlook offenses, have a God-given abil ity to forgive, and do not respond or react to vengeful attacks. As for me, I choose to be a peacemaker and rise above the rights and wrongs. I certainly feel wrongfully treated at times, but I still choose to show kindness, respect, and patience to those who strike out in anger toward me or my family. I refuse to be held hostage by hate and bitterness, and this is the only way I know how to survive and remain at peace with myself, my family, and my God. For the sake of our children who are watching us, please consider your choice. You can be a trucebreaker crossed you, or you can be a peacemaker and experience can bring. We all have this choice, and we all have a purpose in life not to prove who is right or wrong but to care for those around us. I fully believe that God placed me here to be a helpmate to my husband of nearly 17 years, a mother to my two girls; my sweet 16-year-old daughter who is a brain tumor survivor, and to my spunky 14-year-old daughter who has shown great courage and determination in overcoming the daily ties. I am here to make use of what I have learned over to other families who are dealing with the unknowns those determinations and correct me if Im wrong, but I do believe that God Almighty is the ONLY judge who delivers the undisputed truth! Sadly, trucebreakers seem to think it is their mission in life to deliver truth that is, truth as they interpret it. Unfortunately, I have witnessed from my front row seat to this chaos that they use their truth as a weapon without any consideration for those in their path including children who end up hurt and wounded. What a weak foundation we are building when our children are exposed to adults behaving as bullies, and even more so, when this sort of behavior is applauded and accepted by other adults. Make no mistake. They are watching, and they are listeningto all of us! Its not too late for us to begin treating each other with some respect, and to demonstrate for our children valuable opinions, there is one undisputable fact. If we do not human kindness, decency, and restraint if we cannot grasp the importance of doing unto others as we would have them do unto us then no matter who wins, our children will losetherefore, we ALL lose!

Food vendors are urged to sign up early and declare the type of food they will be serving. We will only have one vendor for each food type to help For instance, if you are selling hamburgers, no other vendor will sell that item. Due to popular demand, free giveaways WILL be allowed at the event. However, anyone giving away food or merchandise needs to register with Blountstown Main Street, the same as vendors who are selling. The policy still applies that no one will be allowed to sell or give away a food item that another vendor has registered to sell or offer at their booth. To all those who wish to give away free items, please under stand: The previous rule to not allow freebies in the market area was not made to prevent anyone from being generous or keep them from showing kindness to the community.

A well-meaning gesture wound up hurting these people who showed up expecting to raise money cash to take a family vacation, or even pay their bills. A compromise is necessary to help this become a win-win situation for those wishing to do outreach to the community with free items, as well as those who would like to earn some money. That is why we need everyone to REGISTER and let us know ahead of time what you are wishing to sell or give away. Every vendor who has called Blountstown Main Street to sign up has been very understanding and even appreciative of this new rule because it helps them have a successful booth. Thank you to everyone participating for your willingness to help this work out for every vendor, those selling and those giving items away. This event is all about generos donated by RCC, Piggly Wiggly and Rotary Club, and the free booth spaces provided by Main Street. Bring your lawn chair, then settle in at Magnolia Square, along the sidewalks or the greenspace next to show after dark.


Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JUNE 26, 2013 C ORNER Jerry Cox is a retired military OXS COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. For 99% of Americans, the Bill of Rights is the Constitution of the United States. While many know much about the Bill of Rights, few know little about the basic Constitution. For most Americans, the Bill of Rights is sacrosanct, etched in stone, but the basic Constitution is a bit hazy. The Federalists, founders of the Constitution, believed that there was no need for a Bill of Rights. In Federalist 84, Alexander Hamilton pointed out that a Bill of Rights, nor mally between people and a ruler, was irrelevant in a republic in which the people themselves are the col lective sovereign. The Bill of Rights was a product of Anti-Federalist op position to the writing of the Con stitution. The Anti-Federalists and Federalists still existRepublicans and Democrats. After 226 years, the Federalists, Anti-Federalists is sues continue to fester. The current Bill of Rights dustup concerns the right of Americans to know everything that the gov ernment does. Freedom of the press is the issue. Ask the man on the street, and he will tell you that free dom of the press is bedrock of American democracy. I agree, but does the government have the right to keep information secret from the American people? If you ask the man on the street, the answer will be no. Americans distrust their government to the point of national paranoia. For many, it doesnt mat ter that government secrecy may be in the best in terest of Americans. It doesnt matter that the gov ernment may be attempting to protect the American public from harm, particularly terrorist attacks. The fact that the government has secrets to protect its op erations from the prying eyes of our adversaries is not acceptable to the national media and the Ameri can people. For many Americans, government is evil, and if an evil government is keeping secrets it must be some dastardly plot against its own people. Before writing this column, I watched Gary Pruitt, CEO of the Associated Press, address the National Press Club in Washington DC. As expected, Pruitt defended the APs roll in reporting that the CIA had defeated an al Qaida plot in Yemen. Pruitt stated that this was a plot to do harm to the U.S. and the people had a right to know. This plot involved a double-agent working with the U.S., the UK and Saudi Arabia. The U.S. stated that the event wasnt an actual attempt to do harm to the U.S., but that the CIA was using the doubleagent to run a scam on the terrorists. The AP dis agreed and stayed with their story that the terrorists were planning to do harm to the U.S. Who is right? But does it matter? After hearing Pruitts explanation, I dont have any problem with the AP printing the story. In all days during which security issues were considered. Pruitts main complaint was that the U.S. Depart ment of Justice investigated the AP for publishing this story. I think that the government was wrong to do so. I dont have any problem with the news media re porting on government at any level. If the mayor is romancing the chief clerk, tell the world. If the IRS is spending big bucks on conventions, tell the world. If state legislators are gerrymandering voting districts for political gain, tell the world. Im all for transparent govern ment, but I draw the line on whis tleblowers like Edward Snowden who rat out the NSA and the gov ernments efforts to counter terrorist activities. Im part of government. Im not paranoid. I dont think that government is evil. I dont think that black helicopters are going to land on my lawn and take my pistols. I think that to protect this place called America, the government has a right to some secrets that shouldnt be blabbed to the world and our enemies. People who are entrusted with government secrets and then who decide that the American people should know and reveal national security secrets should be prosecuted. So should any news media that aides and abets people like Snowden. Freedom of the press is not absolute. The news media cant libel and slander. Im amazed at how many people believe that it is OK for the news me dia to participate in a crime. A frequent excuse for publishing secrets is that er excuse is that the information is not important for example, is that the public has a right to know and debate this information. Snowden reveals that the U.S. has been spying on China. Do tell. Who woudda thunk it? Snowden claims to be able to read anyones e-mail. Really? Everyone tells the story in his or her best interest. Did the news media ever consider asking Snowden to prove his allegations? All we have heard is his pronouncements. Someone should say, Prove it. Russia, alleging that he wants to defect to Ecua dor. The Wikileak Group is aiding and abetting wrong with this plan? Does anyone think that the Chinese, Russians and Ecuadorians are aiding Snowden out of the good ness of their hearts? Snowden is going to be milked for every bit of information that he has in his traitor ous brain. Is Snowden so stupid that he thinks that the peo ple of his eventual home away from home care about his concerns for human rights or the rights of the American people to know Americas secrets? Gives new meaning to moron. This is AmericaNo secrets, please On Friday the Food Network announced they would not renew Paula Deens contract, and her.
