PAGE 5 FOR THE LOVE OF LIBERTY After collision with garbage truck on bridge Scooter crushed, Bristol man escapes with minor injuries by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor "I had a split second to get out of the way," said Chad Copeland, who escaped with some minor but painful injuries when he lost control of his small scooter just before it was crushed by a garbage truck last Wednesday morning. Copeland, 29, of Bristol, was crossing the westbound part of the Trammell Bridge into Blountstown on his way to work around 7 a.m. Central Time when a tire blew out and his 49cc scooter began He said he had just gone up a hill on the bridge when the scooter skidded onto the pavement and came to stop in the middle of the right lane. "Just as soon as I came down, the garbage truck was on me," he said, explaining that he trying to get up when he was hit. "The front of the truck's passenger's side tire hit the bike and kind of knocked me at an angle and spun me around," he said. He believes the driver tried to steer away from him, which allowed him the lane next to the bridge railing to get out of the way of the truck. "It didn't really throw me too far," he said. "I just kind of scooted to the side because I didn't know how many cars were coming behind him. I found the safest spot I could." The scooter got hung up under the truck and was dragged for about 50 yards, according to Copeland. Ashley Suber, a former high school classmate of Copeland's who is now a nursing student, was in the after the accident. She came up to the scene to help and stayed by his side until the ambulance arrived. He was taken by emergency helicopter to Bay Medical Center that morning and was released later in the day. He had bruised ribs and numerous abrasions and cuts, including a gash over his Achilles tendon which required six stitches. He was wearing a helmet. "Getting up and trying to get out of the way is what saved my life," he said. "It was pure instinct." Sunday afternoon, he said he was feeling better but will have to use crutches for a while. He said he bought the 2013 scooter about six months ago to commute to his job at K.C. & Sons, where he works as a plumber. He and his wife, Ashlee, were saving up to buy a new vehicle later in the year and he was using the scooter to keep expenses down. The couple has two young daughters, one four and the other six. He said his close call last week, the fact that you're never guaranteed tomorrow." Chad Copelands scooter was left in pieces after being run over by a garbage truck barely a moment after he was knocked back by the trucks tire.

MARIANNA For the fourth year in a row at Chipola College, Big Bend Area Health Education Center (Big Bend AHEC) has sponsored a summer camp for 30 high school students interested health careers. The camp is pro vided at no cost to the students. Students came from Jackson, Washington, Holmes, Calhoun, and Liberty counties to spend the camp week at Chipola. Camp activities included sheep heart and pig kidney dissection, bloodtyping, medical terminology, and simulation lab experience. In the simulation lab at Chipola, students were able to learn many skills practiced by nursing, EMT, and paramedic students. Students were provided with an overview of several health careers in order to understand the entire health care team. Jackson Hospi tal provided a tour of their facil ity and an opportunity for a day of shadowing in various departments. Numerous speakers from near and far came to share about their expe rience as health care professionals. Students also received a sevenhour ACT review course, and in formation on college admissions information on the physical effects and dangers of many current drug trends. Hancock Bank and the United Way provided students with information on Financial Planning. Calhoun Liberty Hospital also provided students with the op portunity to tour their facility and shadow health professionals. A highlight of the camp was a road trip to Tallahassee during which the students toured the FSU College of Medicine and had an opportunity to interact with current medical students. The medical stu dents taught campers skills training in the simulation lab to learn heart and lung sounds and vital signs. A tour of the Moore Athletic Center at the FSU stadium intrigued many of the students. Students heard from Jake Pfeil, Head Football Athletic Trainer at FSU about how sports medicine is conducted with the team. Big Bend AHEC has sponsored similar camps for over 20 years. in Tallahassee. The organization serves a 14 county area and pro vides health education services and tobacco cessation and preven tion programs. AHEC also helps recruit health professionals to rural areas.

JULY 3, 2013 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 Childhood friends cross paths at the Battle of the Bulge Liberty County veterans life forever changed after ghting in World War II by Woody Stewart, contributing writer and member of VFW Post 12010 Few are aware of the heroism Lee Thompson displayed at a young age and the heavy cost he has paid since that time. Even at the age of 87, he has bad dreams nightmares that take him back to the horrors He shared a remarkable chapter of his wartime experience for this article the time he unknowingly crossed paths with his Both survived, although Lee was badly injured. until months later. This quiet, gentle mans story began in the 1930s in the backwoods of Liberty County at Florida River. There was no television and no electronics to occupy his time. He had a pet raccoon, Charlie, and a best friend, Louis Fenn. He hunted together. Lee learned to play a guitar and the boys formed a band, Lou and the Florida River Ramblers. Lee was in high school when he turned eighteen in January 1944. He promptly received a draft notice and did what young men did in those days. He went to war. After months of training in several states, Lee deployed with the 78th Army Division to England in the early fall. That winter he was stationed along the Allied line of advance on the continent of Europe. The Germans were being slowly pushed back since D-Day that June, and no major counterattacks were anticipated. That was soon to change. In what would later become known as the Battle of the Bulge, one of the most famous battles in history, the Germans launched an all-out assault on the Allied positions, attempting to push them back into the sea. Some areas along the line were manned by veteran soldiers, others were not. Newlytrained and untested Americans, many of them just teenagers like Lee, went toe-to-toe with a battle-hardened and determined German army. A heavy cloud cover had the U. S. Army Air Corps grounded, so the soldiers were on their fought back. trained in the use of the bazooka, and that training would serve him well. During one phase of the battle a German tank was pounding Lees position. Battle lines had been broken and reformed and soldiers units other than their own. With men falling dead and wounded all around, Lee saw a bazooka and picked it up. Through the din and confusion of the battle, he could hear a fellow soldier yelling to him, Get the tank out of commission. Sometime later, a shell exploded nearby and injured him badly. He was taken back to England for surgery and recuperation. sent back to rejoin his Division. The big battle had action as they retreated into their homeland. While traveling toward the front lines Lee happened to see his old childhood friend, Louis Fenn, who was also an army soldier. They talked for a while, mostly of home and loved ones. Then Louis told about being pinned down by a German tank and yelling to a fellow soldier with a bazooka to get the SOB. Amazingly, the two best friends, who had grown up together in the swamps and backwoods of Liberty County, had most veterans who have seen hard combat, and witnessed the unspeakable carnage of war, he was reluctant to discuss it. I just dont like to talk about that, he told me, theres just too many bad memories there. I have great respect for the old veteran and would not prod him for more information, but from time to time he would tell me something. It usually wasnt much but, when Lee Thompson speaks, I listen. During a recent visit, we sat at his kitchen table and talked about an upcoming Honor Flight that World War II Veterans from the Big Bend, southern Georgia and Alabama would be taking to visit the World War II memorial in Washington, D. C. Thats a story in itself and a great thing thats being done for our veterans. But while we talked he handed me a book that was about the size of a high school annual. It was old and worn. It was a journal of his Division from the time they left the United States until the war ended in May of including some of the aftermath. It had been compiled by the unit historians and had photos and maps. As expected, most of the personnel photos and his colonels. There were also photos of the places where they had fought, but few were men had to man weapons, even the historians. Toward the end of the book I saw page after page of names the names of all the men who had been in the Division. Many names had an asterisk beside them. These were the soldiers who never came home. Their graves are marked by white headstones in cemeteries across Western Europe. I would not have asked him to do what he did next, but I sat in rapt attention as he moved his hand over the pages, stopping at times to point to a name. I listened. I remember him. He carried a harmonica in his pocket. He could play it really well and kept us entertained. This fellow here was engaged to be married. He carried a picture of his sweetheart and liked to show it to all the guys. And this poor man here, he was standing right beside me when he was hit. He paused and pointed to yet another name. This was a very good friend. We were really close. I saw him get killed. As he spoke I could hear the sadness in his voice. He paused again, longer this time, and shook his head from side to side. It just dont seem right. I got to come home and live a good long life and they didnt. It dont seem fair. Lee was discharged from the Army in 1946 and, like all returning veterans, hoped to resume his old life. But it would never be quite the same. He had seen things, as he said, that a person ought not see. He returned to Bristol and went back to high school. He drove the school bus during his senior year. With his classmates things had changed. His life experience was vastly different from theirs. While others thought of football games and school dances, girlfriends and movies, Lee could not forget the faces of the young men left behind. After graduation, Lee worked with his father in logging for several years, then in construction and forestry. He also served in the National Guard. Lee married and had four children, two boys and two girls. That marriage did not last and he later remarried. His second wife passed away several years ago. Lee has since settled into retirement in Bristol and maintains a quiet existence. He takes parts in activities at the First Baptist Church and is also active in the local VFW, where he commands the Honor Guard, giving You might see Mr. Thompson from time to time, riding around Bristol in his golf cart with his little dog Sandy. Shake his hand and tell him Thank you. Not only for what he did, but for what he still endures.

There have been so many times and so many ways that our grand experiment with freedom and democracy could have come to a screeching halt or just never have taken off to begin with. That weve held it all together for 237 years is a testament to the grace of God, the wisdom of great leaders and the natural desire of hu mans to live free. As we celebrate the nations birth, its a great time to remember exactly how all this came to be. When they were younger, I used to read my kids the Declaration of Independence every July 4th. Im ing history stuff, but my goal was to give them an appreciation for what the holiday represents and this fascinating document. I also wanted them to understand the con ditions under which it was written. I explained that a group of citi zens from different colonies got together and told arguably the most powerful man on earth to go pound sand. Let that thought sink in for a sec ond. King George III ruled an em pire that stretched around the globe. He had a mighty navy and a battlehardened army that defeated France just a few years earlier. tence, the patriots committed an act of high treason by announcing political bands with England. To paraphrase the opening lines, they thing really isnt working for us any more. Were going to do our own thing now. That was outrageous on its own, but then they took it one step further and added these immortal words: evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain un alienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. They went on to enumerate all the ways in which the king and his government were a thieving, con niving band of thugs. (Because, at that point, why not?) But to me, the heart of the document is the Rights. Thats because it describes the very essence of freedom. Our basic human and civil rights arent gifts from our government; they are ours to start with. We agree, on a very limited basis, to forgo some of those freedoms so that we can live in a civil society. But the citizens remain sovereign. I think we sometimes forget that this concept is still a bit of a novelty in the world. For example, Irans citizens live under the repressive rule of religious fanatics. China is opening up to capitalism but not to human rights. And even the United Kingdom and other European na tions live with the remnants of monarchy. Ours is a unique success story, but we have to remember that free dom isnt always neat and clean. Freedom means that we have to put up with people doing and saying things we dont like. It means crim inals are entitled to due process. It means our government is a secular institution. And it means that the jackass next door gets to vote just the same as us. Despite all of that, freedom is precious. Its our birthright and we should never blindly give it up in the name of politics, religion or even security. Thats because none of those things is sustainable in its absence. Happy Independence Day!

Not unexpectedly, the British took um brage with this turn of events, and the American War for Independence began. The British were 1781. The war of independence Treaty of Paris. But, according to Smithson ian historical records, not even three decades after the signing of the Treaty of Paris, which for malized Britains recognition of the United States of America, the two countries were again in interference with American international trade, combined with American expansionist visions, led Congress to declare war on Great Britain on June 18, 1812. A bit of tit-for-tat for the new American government, but the British did burn the White House during this 1812 dustup. The irony of which I speak is that on this historic time and celebration of American in dependence, the Supreme Court of the United States strikes down a key provision of Ameri Americans will be celebrating their indepen dence and freedoms while some Americans will have one of their most cherished freedoms re strictedthe right to vote. On the surface, the Court decided that local politicians in the states and counties, primar ily in the South, that are subject to the Voting thing about establishing procedures, require The news media reports that Chief Justice for certain states and certain counties to get ap proval from the U.S. Department of Justice for any changes in voting procedures and locations in those states and counties that have been sin gled out for such oversight by the DOJ. As the title of the law implies, the purpose Americans to exercise their basic right to vote. On the surface, Americans exercising their right to vote is about as American pie as can be. What could possibly be wrong with Americans lining up at their polling places and marking a ballot for the politician of their choice? Its a scene in The problem was and continues to be that po ulate the voters and voting process. Minorities tempt to manipulate minority voters to prevent election of Democrats. The last election is a good example. Floridas da legislature reduced the num ber of days for voting causing long lines at the polls. This was particularly true in Dade County which has a high percentage of minority voters. The news me dia reported that some voters in Dade County waited in line up to eight hours before casting their vote. On the Fourth, Americans will revel in their 1776 freedoms, but the irony of gaining inde pendence from the British over 200 years ago doesnt mean that all Americans today enjoy the same degree of freedoms and rights. The Supreme Courts belief that racism is no longer a factor in American society, particularly in some southern states, is a nave view. The be lief that oversight of some areas in the South to protect minority voting rights is no longer re quired is pie in the sky. But, the Supreme Court has spoken. Its the law of the land. While the Court diluted protection for mi cision in support of another minority group in American societylesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender (LGBT). This was not a popular decision with many Americans, particularly conservatives. The ba sic premise of the ruling is that same-sex cou government and society as do married hetero sexual couples. One would think that the Supreme Court would be particularly sensitive to protecting the rights of all minorities. In these two decisions, cornerstone of the American democratic pro cess. Why would the Court believe that racism is dead and politicians arent going to depress the minority vote? Conversely, the Court protected the rights of LGBT individuals. A good thing to do, but at the same time, to undermine one of the basic rights, the right to vote, makes no sense. In the past, I considered the Supreme Court a dispassionate body that rendered decisions in a totally unbiased manner. A nave view on my part. The Supremes are like political parties, bi ased in their left and right views of America. THE IRONY OF IT ALL
