In an email sent late Monday afternoon, Uzzell instructed school district staff to refer Peddie to her office "if he approaches you at work." She pointed out that she is Chief County Schools and in charge of personnel. "Managing personnel is not in the realm of a School Board member's duties," she wrote. "We have much to accomplish prior to the beginning of the school year, and Uzzell to Peddie: We do not have time to visit with you Both drivers and a young passenger escaped injury in a Tuesday afternoon collision in Bristol, according to Liberty County Sheriff's Deputy Jarrod Taylor. Whitney McKenzie of Blountstown was trav eling south on Baker Street around 2:45 p.m. when she drove into the path of a 2005 four-door Chrysler going east on Spring Street, driven by Cheryl Rowe of Bristol. McKenzie's young daughter, who was in the car with her, was unharmed. McKenzie said she pulled out from the stop sign because she couldn't see and then hit the oncoming car, according to the deputy. The crash crushed the front end of McKenzie's 2005 Nissan Altima and crushed the fender on Rowe's car.

She ended the email by stating, "So, please refer Chairman Peddie to me if he shows up to 'visit' or 'question' you at work and I will be more than happy to assist him." Not surprisingly, the missive drew responses from both Peddie and School Board member Tina Tharpe. Peddie responded to the superintendent with an email of his own at 6:24 p.m., noting that he was asked to for the district Monday. He said he discussed the upcoming then went to the high school to donate some money to help pay for the softball team's championship rings. "At no time did I direct district staff to do anything," he wrote. "There was absolutely no personnel management on my part. I will continue to visit schools as I wish, talk to staff without disruption to their job, and ask questions regarding anything I choose appropriate relating to the school system." He concluded, "I've been doing this for 11 years without a single complaint until now. I, like you, have been elected to do a job for this school district. I'm doing my jobnothing more, nothing less." The superintendent sent a blunt reply less than an hour later, noting that Peddie p.m. and then at the high school. "Bottom line: We are busy working. All of us. We do not have time to visit Altha woman charged with slashing man by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor An Altha woman was charged with domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon after her husband was slashed seven times with a knife during an altercation at their home. Altha Police Chief James Baggett was dispatched to the NW Oak Street residence at 5:45 p.m. Saturday after a 911 caller reported a stabbing. The police chief found the injured to his left arm. He declined medical assistance. The victim said Margaret McCardle came home two hours late from work He told the police chief that when his wife got out of the car, she appeared very agitated, started cursing and yelled, "get out of my house!" He stated that when he told her he was leaving with their child, she replied that he "would die" before that happened. The victim said she followed him into the house, yelling at him and then started cutting him on the arm. He ran out of the house. Neighbors reported hearing McCardle screaming for him to leave, and stated that he replied, "O.K." After the two entered the home, witnesses said they heard her yelling and him calling out, "Please stop. Don't cut me.don't stab me," before he ran from the home. A Paula Dean knife with blood on found on the kitchen countertop. McCardle denied cutting her husband's arm, telling the police chief that the victim cut his own arm "and tried to make it look like I did it." When asked how she got blood on her left arm, McCardle denied there was any until the police chief pointed it out. He photographed the blood on her arm, which had no injuries or marks, according to the arrest report. McCardle was booked into the Calhoun County Jail. LIBERTY CO. SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT GLORIA UZZELL & SCHOOL BOARD CHAIR KYLE PEDDIE with you," she wrote. She reminded him that employees have been directed to call her if he approaches them and if he needs to speak with someone, she said she will set up an appointment for him. "If you wish to take on the duties of Superintendent of Schools, feel free to put your name on the ballot Tharpe emailed the superintendent later that evening to ask her to clarify her statement, writing, "I don't think board members are required to go through the superintendent before visiting a school The school board member went on to note, "Having 'your' personnel direct board members to you first before 'allowing' us to speak or meet is not acceptable regardless if it's me, Mr. Peddie or any other board member." She expressed concern that the action may be a possible violation of school law and urged Uzzell: "Reconsider your directive to 'your' employees." The superintendent's response? "The directive was regarding Mr. Peddie only. Please make note of to whom the email was directed." CREDIT CARD QUESTIONS Tensions have been mounting since a controversial June 4 school board meeting, when Peddie confronted the school superintendent about credit cards board's knowledge or approval. The card she used showed two women's clothing shops at Pier Park in merchandise from Dillard's. The card was also used to buy an exercise video and pay for a hair appointment at Cost Cutters.

Page 4 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JULY 17, 2013 COMMENTARY America has lost the title of the fattest nation on earth. We are now only the second-fattest na tion. We lost the title to Mexico. Isnt that amaz ing? We are so fat and lazy now that were too fat and lazy to be number one at being fat and lazy. JAY LENO Yesterday Google went down for over an hour in four different states. Or as Bing and Yahoo put it, Well NOW how are we supposed to look up stuff? JIMMY FALLON President Obamas approval rating is down to 44 percent. You can tell Obamas getting des perate because today he gave a speech entitled Hey, guys, the Twinkie is coming back next week. CONAN OBRIEN Ocean monsters come out of the sea so we must build huge robots and they battle to the death. Im telling you, I havent seen anything like this since last Friday! DAVID LETTERMAN Political experts say that Eliot Spitzers deci sion to return to politics could hurt Anthony Wein ers chances of becoming mayor. Or as Spitzer put it, See? Im making things better already. JIMMY FALLON DC Comics has released a new comic in which Superman kills someone. At the end of the comic book hes signed by the New England Patriots. CONAN OBRIEN A new study found that Americans are exer cising more than ever but still not losing much weight. Not good in fact, its all I could think about on my jog to Dunkin Donuts. JIMMY FALLON Now that marijuana is legal in the state of Col orado, in Denver theyre talking about taxing it up to 35 percent. Suddenly those drug cartels dont seem so greedy anymore, do they? JAY LENO Recently Paul McCartney visited Graceland. He left a guitar pick on Elvis Presleys head stone. He said it was so Elvis can play guitar in heaven. Dont they have guitar picks in heaven? Or is there a bunch of angels with their harps saying, Oh, man, I wish the guy from Wings would leave us a pick somewhere. CRAIG FERGUSON A recent study says the state that drinks the most beer is North Dakota. In fact, one night North Dakota got so drunk, it woke up next to West Virginia. CONAN OBRIEN Today thousands of Elvis impersonators gather to swap stories, swivel their hips, and wave their adult diapers. CRAIG FERGUSON The U.S. birthrate is at an all-time low. The birthrate is now so low that The Maury Pov ich Show may have to cut back to just half an hour. JAY LENO Do you know that Elvis had 18 number one hits? They include Jailhouse Rock, Love Me Tender, and Gangnam Style. I read that on Wikipedia. CRAIG FERGUSON George Clooney broke up with his girlfriend. I didnt see that coming. DAVID LETTERMAN George Clooney released a statement say ing that yes, its true that theyre breaking up. George said he would like to spend more time with his next girlfriend. DAVID LETTERMAN According to The Washington Post, the NSA has been monitoring phone calls and emails of people in Mexico. So apparently its not enough to spy on American citizens, they feel they have to spy on FUTURE American citizens as well. JAY LENO Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. STAND YOUR GROUND? The George Zimmerman, Tray von Martin event was one of those things that people wish had never occurred. Its tragic when any per son is killed, but when a young man with his future before him is killed, the loss is felt more deeply, particularly by his parents, family and friends. I wont, or cant offer an opinion of who was right or wrong because, unlike the jurors, I dont know the facts of the case. What I know is what I heard on television from the talking heads and expert witnesses. The trial was catnip for cable television. They couldnt get enough of the drama. The Internet news services werent to be outdone; my Inter net service was inundated with breaking news items. This unfortunate event was a classic exam ple of how the news media can affect public opin ion causing the public to polarize in their views and opinions. I was surprised as to how many television attor neys and former prosecutors who, without know ing the facts of the case, would form opinions of who was or was not at fault. I attended the Univer sity of Miami Law School for a year. My quest for a law degree ended when the Air Force sent me to a NATO staff job. One of the things I learned in law school was not to form any opinions until all the pertinent facts are known. As with the Zimmerman case, there are numerous facts and pieces of informa tion, but usually 98% of the information has no bearing on the case. Both Zimmerman and Martin are victims. Mar tin in that he lost his life. Zimmerman in knowing that he killed a teenager. Tragic events like the Zimmerman case, aircraft accidents or any number of catastrophic events are, without fail, preceded by a chain of events, if broken, would have prevented the tragedy. If either Zimmerman or Martin had been ten minutes early or late in their arrival in the apart ment complex, the event would not have occurred. If Zimmerman had driven a different street or Martin taken a different route, the event would not have happened. But it was fate; the event did hap pen with tragic results. Admittedly without factual information, Ill offer an observation that there was a question of self-defense for both participants. Martin had rea son to fear Zimmerman. Martin did not know who Zimmerman was, why he was approaching Mar tin. Was Zimmerman a threat to Martin, perhaps someone with intent to harm or rob Martin? Once together, apparently a confrontation en sued. Martin allegedly punched Zimmerman, knocking Zimmerman to the ground. Martin then allegedly straddled Zimmerman and began hitting him, allegedly threatening to kill Zimmerman. Now the roles have changed. Zim merman is the one in need of selfdefense. As I listened to the talking heads discuss this event, I wondered what I would do if I found myself in a similar situation. I have a license for a concealed weapon. I always have my pistol in my truck. Well, with or without a license for a concealed weapon, it was time to read Florida Statutes, Chapter 776, Jus 776.012 Use of force in defense of person. to s. 776.013. Television talking heads made a major issue of the fact that Zimmerman appeared to have only su assault by Martin. Those comments made me won der how much of a beating must the victim endure before he or she can be in fear for their life. Must the victim incur brain damage before he or she de fends his or her self? Of course, people must avoid confrontations if possible. They should call the police if a confron tation is about to begin. Walk away. Drive away. Keep distance between themselves and the other person or people. Avoid exchanging words and in sults. But, if none of those precautions are working and a person is about to get his brains scattered in the parking lot, then its time to stand his or her ground. If there is anyone left when the smoke clears, they can settle it in court. C ORNER Jerry Cox is a retired military OXS
JULY 17, 2013 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 5 D.C. student trip honors the late Ryan Flowers WEWAHITCHKA Seth Goodwin and Chandler Vines recently traveled to Washington, D. C. as Gulf Coast Electric Cooperatives representatives at the Rural Electric Youth Tour that electric coop eratives across the nation participate in. Each year, the Cooperative sponsors the Youth Tour contest for eleventhgraders whose parents are members of GCEC. Contestants are interviewed by a panel of three judges from the electric cooperative industry, and two students are selected to travel on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D. C. in June. While in Washington, the students toured the numerous museums; Arlington National Cemetery; the Iwo Jima Monu ment; the U. S. Capitol area; the Korean, Lincoln, Vietnam, FDR, Jefferson and World War II Memorials; Mt. Vernon; and the National Cathedral. They also enjoyed the U. S. Marine Corps Sunset Parade; a boat cruise and dance on the Potomac River; and ended their trip by seeing a show at the Kennedy Center. A highlight of the trip was the National Youth Day rally, where they joined other eleventh graders from across the nation. It was on this day that the Florida del egation honored the late Ryan Flowers. Flowers was to attend the Youth Tour as a representative for Gulf Coast Electric, but died tragically in an automobile accident less than six weeks before the trip. The Flowers family established a scholarship fund in his memory and sold t-shirts as a fundraiser. On June 17, the 32 students and nine chaperones from Florida wore the t-shirts and shared Ryans story. The Washington, D. C. Youth Tour Program has been in existence since 1958 when 34 students from Iowa and a handful of chaperones visited Wash ington for a week-long study tour. By 1964, the program was catching on, and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association began to coordinate the ef forts of the co-ops. Since then, thousands of young people have experienced this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit our nations capitol and learn about our government. Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative is part of the Touch stone Energy national alliance of local, consumerowned electric cooperatives providing high standards of service to customers large and small. More than 70 employees serve more than 20,000 meters and 2,500 miles of line in Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson, Walton and Washington counties and in the municipalities of Wewahitchka, Ebro, Lynn Haven, White City, Fountain and Southport. The Florida delegation traveling to Washington, D.C. as part of last months Gulf Coast Electric-sponsored trip shows off the t-shirts they wore in honor of Ryan Flowers.

Outta the WOODS The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is urging boaters to go slow and be vigilant on the Choctawhatchee River. The request to go slow comes after a Bay County child was se trip with his family when a large Gulf sturgeon leapt into their boat, hitting three children. One of them, Nathaniel Smith, who turned 8 last week, was hospitalized with skull fractures but is now recuperating at his Youngstown home. He is the son of Angela and Wilson Scott Smith. rain, so we cranked up and the kids huddled under a tarp in the front of the boat, Smith said. The sturgeon just came out of nowhere, and I yelled and tried to cut the motor but it was too late. The sturgeon, which Smith believes was 3-4 feet long, grazed the back of the head of his nephew Austin and then hit his 16-yearold daughter, Amber, with enough force to knock her out of the boat. Smith wheeled the boat around, pulled Amber aboard and then realized Nathaniel had taken the brunt of the collision with a blow to the head. The impact left Nathaniel unconscious. Doctors later determined he had two skull fractures. Sacred Heart Health System in Panama City, then on to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola and was released on July 2. Scott said his son still has headaches but is recovering. but I never even thought that a sturgeon might jump and hurt you. Thats just something you dont ever expect to experience, he said. While sturgeon strikes are rare on the Choctawhatchee, they have happened before. On Aug. 4, 2002, Brian Clements, who lived near Bozeman School at the time, was motoring down the river by himself when he caught the full impact of a leaping sturgeon in the middle of his chest. Clement spent a week in Gulf Coast Hospital with a cracked sternum and bruised internal organs. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) does extensive work on northwest Florida rivers with Gulf sturgeon. In 2012, the FWS estimated the population at 3,400 in the Choctawhatchee River and 500-1,000 in the Apalachicola River.

Columnist Jim McClellan shares his thoughts on what Stonehenge was really supposed to be and explains, The original drawings show back. He laments the loss of its Calhoun Coun ty counterpart, Polehenge. Near the English village of Wiltshire sits the ruins of Stonehenge, an ancient ritual site featuring giant stone pillars that rise up out of the ground, obviously built by humans, but with a purpose that still isnt entirely clear. There are lots of theories, of course. Some claim it was a burial site, while others say it was a pa gan temple. I dont buy any of that. In fact, Im pretty sure it was a hunting camp that Now Im no student of ancient British history (or prehistory as the case may be.) However, there was once a creation in southern Calhoun County that we dubbed Polehenge because of the striking simi larities. I refuse to believe the two arent related somehow. As with its English counterpart, some of the details of the construction of Pole henge have been lost to time. The con sensus among the experts mostly my brothers, family friends and me is that sometime in the mid-s, my father ran into a crew replacing telephone poles along Hugh Creek Road. Somehow, he convinced the foreman to give him several of the used ones, then follow him down to our camp and dig an equal number of holes in a roughly square pattern near the bank of the slough. Who these people were and how Daddy was able to press them into service remains a mystery. What we do know is that, a little while later, my brother Bill and his friend Chuck Reed showed up at the camp and were soon put to work setting the poles in the ground. When they were done, Polehenge was born: Nine telephone poles rising from the mud bank (to different heights) and reach ing for the sky (at odd angles). It was a sight to behold. My brother Hentz was so moved that he shared an eerily accurate prophecy: I guarantee youll come back here in 20 years and those poles will still be sitting there just like that. He was right, mainly because Daddy had counted on this being a multi-gener ation project, one that would culminate with a camp atop the poles he planted. The rest of us just had to build it. What he failed to take into account, however, is that his sons all remembered long nights with rats and snakes at the old camp. We werent going to spend time and money just to give them a room with a view (not to mention the high ground if We were perfectly happy to keep on sleeping in our tents, so Polehenge re ago. Sadly, it disappeared having never become a world heritage site, a national park or even a meeting place for drug-ad dled cult members. But because of Polehenge, pictures of its forerunner across the Atlantic always leave me wondering what Stonehenge would have looked like if the ancients had ever gotten done with it.

JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South The Story of Polehenge FWC asks public to report mink sightings in Florida Mink are rare in Florida, and wildlife bi ologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) are hoping to learn more about this small mammal. But it occurs. People can report evidence such as mink sightings, photos and road-killed speci mens online. Adult mink weigh 2-3 pounds and measure about 2 feet in length. Fur can be dark choco late or a light rusty brown. Sometimes there is a patch of white along the chin and under the throat. We know that mink are more likely to be found in and near salt-marsh habitat on both coasts of Florida but the reports people provide will help us pinpoint where we do research, said Chris Winchester, wildlife biologist with the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. Winchester said there are three known subspecies of mink in Florida Atlantic salt marsh mink, Gulf salt marsh mink and Ever glades mink. Although there is a scarcity of information about the three subspecies, only the Everglades mink is listed as threatened. Some people confuse mink with other spe cies such as otters and weasels, but whereas mink are quite small, otters typically weigh 10 to 30 pounds and are 3 feet or more long. Weasels look similar to mink, but are smaller and have brown fur along their backs and pale yellow fur along the entire belly. small mammals.
