Page 4 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JULY 24, 2013 COMMENTARY The royal baby was born. But dont worry, America, we still have Honey Boo Boo. CONAN OBRIEN Im sure you all heard the news about the roy al baby. William and Kate are the proud parents of a baby boy. Can you believe the media cov erage? Youd think it was Kim Kardashian and Kanye West having a kid. JAY LENO Detroit has become the largest city in U.S. his Detroits population dropped something like 70 percent, but the government got bigger. The tax base got smaller, but the government got bigger. Thank God that kind of thing could never happen in Washington. JAY LENO A lot of guys go to Comic-Con dressed as su per heroes. Comic-Con is a great place to go if you want to see what all your favorite super he roes would look like if they stopped working out and ate only ice cream. CRAIG FERGUSON According to an English newspaper, a mystery fan has been leaking the results of professional wrestling matches before they even begin. He knows who is going to win and he puts it online. That Edward Snowden has gone too far! JAY LENO Is that really a big deal, knowing ahead of time whos going to lose? I mean, Cubs fans have been dealing with that for years. JAY LENO Its rumored the new Play Station controller will measure the degree to which you are sweat ing. In response, gamers asked, Whats sweat ing? CONAN OBRIEN The temperature got up to a 100 here in New York City. And now doctors are warning people about something called heat rage. Its a real thing, where people to overreact when it gets too hot. Its similar to those other conditions in New York: cold rage, lukewarm rage, and just regular old rage. JIMMY FALLON in Vietnam. So it looks like we might win that war after all. CONAN OBRIEN About 135,000 people have descended on San Diego for Comic-Con. I think Comic-Con might have jumped the shark. Ill tell you why because Im going. Its like Sundance Film Fes tival. I remember when Sundance was cool, all a place where Paris Hilton goes to party. CRAIG FERGUSON I understand theres a lot of celebrating going on at Buckingham Palace right now. I just hope theyre able to get up for work tomorrow. JAY LENO A woman in Pennsylvania was just in the news for giving birth to a baby that weighs 13 pounds, 12 ounces and is more than two feet long. You could tell it was big because when it was time to go home, the baby said, You want me to drive? JIMMY FALLON The son of Jerry Sandusky, the Penn State legally changed. You cant blame him. The weird thing is hes changing it to Zimmerman. JAY LENO A new report says that Audis are more likely to be driven by men who cheat on their wives. While their wives are more likely to wind up with that Audi. JIMMY FALLON Millions of Americans await the return of the Twinkie. Meanwhile, millions of British citizens await the arrival of the royal baby. Basically were both waiting for something thats long, soft, and will probably last 80 years. CONAN OBRIEN The reason Im going to Comic-Con is Im moderating the Doctor Who panel. Ive been watching Doctor Who since the 1960s. But therell be people at Comic-Con who know a lot more than I do. If I dont know the title of a par ticular episode, or if I mispronounce the name of an alien planet, I will be shamed like Paula Deen at the BET awards. CRAIG FERGUSON Rush Limbaugh claims he is now allowed to say the N-word. After hearing this, Paula Deen said, Let me know how that works out for you. CONAN OBRIEN Researchers in New Mexico say that brain scans of prison inmates can predict whether they will commit another crime. You know an other good way to predict? Theyre already in prison.

JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTO To the editor, And the plot thickens. How in the world does if Nick Finch will resign then we will defer the charges, get added onto one week after the arraignment to say also: the sheriff would resign and take part in a probation-like program, State Attorney Willie Meggs said in an interview? Then, as if Mr. Meggs had not squirmed and turned and tripped over his tongue already he states, that the conditional resignation of Sheriff Finch is VAGUE yet. He also called Sheriff Finch's attorney and stated they were "going to war"(Tallahassee Democrat is enough of trying to destroy a man's reputation to make yourself look a little more favorable. I am certainly not im pressed. The rest of that story, folks, is "you can run next election to try to get elected sheriff if you want to."To which we say Sheriff Nick Finch already ran in an election and guess what(?) he WON !...and for some reason it must be very disconcerting to someone for so much energy to be put into "THE RIDDING OF SHERIFF FINCH." Oh, I know, unsavory things are done in the dark, so lets send the FDLE in at 11 p.m. in the dark of night to search.... (FOR?) and lets not be decent and ask the Sheriff to let us sit down together ure out something to get him out of our and let us get one of "our own" back in the sheriffs seat (Nick Finch's seat).... because the election he won was not suiting someone...then let's replace him with an interim sheriff....."Oh, I know, another FDLE agent until we can plan WHO will be best in that seat!"... Folks, I think we have the makings for a movie. Only it is not a movie, but a livelihood at stake and that of his family and their lives. This is simply wrong and needs to be righted. When we sit back and let the course of wrong go on, we are allowing our rights to be taken away one by one. Strange, I suppose until WRONG and DECEIT and LIES attack us we are cozy to let things go on. One day I feel hurt....and it may be just too late. I, for one, will not be timid and just sit back and not speak up ... just plain wrong! This is in answer to Willie Meggs interview with the Tallahassee Democrat in Thursday, July 18 and WCTV6 July 18 and 19. When I have pondered ALL of this.....I remember reading 'The Judge McMillan in Florida several years ago. Google the story. His wife, Susan, wrote it. I encour will know Sheriff Finch may have broken the "cardinal rule" in Liberty County .....what?.... you don't run for election against one of the good old boys and WIN. The NERVE of him!!!....and him a transplant!...from Iowa. Sheriff Finch I would be one to vote for you again to day. Who will stand for right and justice with me? We can do something.

WITH A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Write: The Calhoun-Liberty Journal P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321 Exploring new depths With land barely visible on the ho rizon, the pair of divers plunged into the endless rough seas and disappeared below the surface, a diminishing trail of bubbles the only indication of the di rection they headed. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva tion Commission (FWC) already keep people and Floridas critters safe by air, land and sea; now they are working under the sea as well. The agency has launched a pilot dive program, and its off to a great start. The seven-mem ber dive team was created under an agreement between the FWC and its partners Florida State University, Panama City Fire Department and coordinate training and equipment use and respond to calls. The FWC por tion of the team handles calls across northwest Florida, with help from the partner agencies within their respective jurisdictions. On a recent day spent training off Panama City Beach, the team used the FWCs largest vessel, the 85-foot Gulf Sentry, as a platform. With the rest of the crew bustling on deck, organizing dive tanks and monitoring the seas and weather, pairs of divers took turns down below. As the noise of the world above diminished, the divers resorted to hand signals and the rhythm of count less hours spent training together in order to communicate. Each pair spent about 20 minutes conducting training exercises on a sunken ship, ensuring that they and their equipment were in good working order. The training keeps the team sharp. When theres a boating or dive accident or a crime is suspected, of ficers search for victims, re cover evidence and process the scene. This al lows them to be well-rounded in all aspects of their duties regarding boat ing safety and resource protec tion. The partner ship with other agencies also prevents dupli cation of efforts and allows emer gency personnel to respond more quickly to incidents. Since its formation in March, the team has continued to train together frequently and has responded to six calls off the Gulf coast. Hazardous weather and environmental conditions prevented them from getting in the water on two additional calls. But when conditions are favorable for them to get in the water, they do. Often battling cold temperatures, ex tremely limited visibility and strong currents, they have successfully helped with evidence recovery, derelict vessels and boating accidents. At one tragic boating case, divers from partner agencies recovered a body underwater. Since much of the boat and engines were on the bottom, the FWC members gathered evidence as part of the investigation. for their counterparts in other areas of the state. The FWC hopes the suc cess of the pilot program will lead to implementation statewide. Protecting Paradise Beginning Monday, Aug. 5, BHS students can come sign up for their parking decals.

For one thing, you never knew what was go ing to happen on Reds show because he didnt know either. Best I can tell, they usually just turned him loose with a boat and a cameraman and made a show out of what ever came next. I ran across Fishing with Red Holland on YouTube re cently and it made me miss the old programs. So as a trib ute to him and all the enter tainment he provided through the years, Ive compiled a list 5.

But what is Music Therapy? According to the American Music Therapy Association, Music Therapy is the clinical and evi dence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an therapy supports its effectiveness in a wide variety of healthcare and educational settings. Big Bend Hospice is among a very small group of hospices nationwide that offer music therapy to all of their patients. Licensed therapists utilize Music Therapy to manage stress, alleviate pain, express feelings, im prove communication and promote physical wellness. For a hospice patient, dealing with a terminal diagno sis can be overwhelming, especially without adequate support. The live music interventions that Music Therapists (MT-BC) provide can be a great source of support and comfort. Music Therapy for Big Bend Hospice patients usually occurs one on one, though it may occur as part of a group or include the patients family if this is the patient's preference. Music Therapists (MT) almost always use live, patient preferred music. Often MTs use guitars or keyboards, but are able to use other instruments as needed. Music therapy may appear entertaining, but therapeutic goals. Since 2001, Big Bend Hospices Music Therapy program has been unique. The program has hosted international researchers and delegates and regularly hosts music therapy trainings. They have written the music that Big Bend Hospice uses with various Remem brance Services, Dedications, at Camp Woe-Be-gone and Hope for the Holidays. In August of 2008 as part of BBHs 25th Anniversary, their Music Therapists were able to record these special songs on a CD and have it professionally mastered and recorded. In May 2009, Big Bend Hospice celebrated the release of the CD, "In the Shelter of Our Tree: The Songs of Big Bend Hospice". BBH Music Therapists worked with Winterstone Productions to produce a professional recording of special songs to distribute to patients and families. music therapists, 3 part-time music therapist and four interns. MTs often co-treat with nurses, family sup port counselors, volunteers, chaplains, and/or fellow been privileged to be a part of the BBH MT team for almost six years. During that time, I have witnessed countless end of life journeys made easier through the provision of skilled Music Therapy care. Our staff is highly trained and skilled and is among the best in the nation at providing this important service. Big Bend Hospice is grateful to the community for their support Therapy Department Manager & Internship Director. completed a degree in music therapy, a full time six month internship, and passed the music therapy board musical techniques, psychology, biology/anatomy, counseling skills, and other areas. Hospices are not required by Medicare or Medicaid to provide Music Therapy services, however through donations and community support Big Bend Hospice continues to provide quality, licensed Music Therapy care to hospice patients and their families, especially in the rural areas. Funds such as these provide live, research based music therapy care at the bedside to those who need it most. Big Bend Hospice has been serving this community since 1983 with compassionate end of life care along with grief and loss counselors available to provide information and support to anyone in Leon, Jefferson, Taylor, Madison, Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin or Wakulla County.
