The school board appointed Director of Administration Dr. superintendent is named. Nobles submitted her name for the post Tuesday morning, joining three others vying for the $89,000-a-year post. Former School Superintendents Tony Anderson and Jack "Hal" Summers have applied, along with the school district's former Director of Transportation Greg Solomon. A spokesman for the governor's the appointment to be made. No deadline has been announced for applicants to submit their name for consideration. One person who is not seeking the job is School Board Chairman Kyle Peddie. "I'm not putting my name in the hat," Peddie said Tuesday. But with the opening day of school approaching, he said it was critical that a decision be made soon. "We're hoping to get a superintendent before school starts," he said, noting that everyone from school staff, community members to students are asking daily, "Have you heard anything?" He said Nobles "is doing a phenomenal job" but added, "Everybody needs to know who the boss is." But even the person appointed may not know how long they'll have the job because the suspended superintendent "could come back if acquitted," Peddie said. School district waiting to nd out who the new school superintendent will be by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor The goal, she said, "Is to make sure everybody stays calm and keeps moving forward." With the opening day of school set for Aug. 19, Dr. Kathy Nobles has her work cut out for her. Shortly after Liberty County School Superintendent Gloria "Gay" on Wednesday, July 17, Nobles was asked to take the helm of the school system until a new superintendent could be appointed. She was at a conference in Panama City when she got a call from School Board Chairman Kyle Peddie "We didn't have a contingency plan in place. We didn't have a deputy or assistant superintendent. We to meet with her leadership team, which was already with her at a Panhandle Area Educational Consortium Conference. School Principals Aaron Day, Craig Shuler and Jeff Sewell, along with several school deans and other school administrative staff had plenty to talk about when they came together for two sessions that Thursday morning. "We talked about what needed to take place between now and the start of school," she said, explaining, "We talked things through as a group. We prioritized. This list was a little long so we decided on what could be put off until after school started." One thing was clear. "We decided we needed to get busy," she said. OPEN HOUSE, STAFF BREAKFASTS PLANNED "Everything's going to be business as usual," Nobles said. "I hope the kids don't see any difference. At least we have the summer to deal with it," she said of the transition. There are new textbooks to buy, events to schedule and programs to plan for. One early decision was to delay the planned changes for the In School Suspension program, which will now have middle school and elementary students bussed to the high school to serve their suspension.

A } CALHOUNLIBERTY BMS earns an A grade CALHOUN COUNTY Calhoun County Super intendent of Schools Ralph Yoder, announced that Blountstown Middle School (BMS) earned an A grade by the Florida Department of Education in its annual release of school grades for elementary and middle schools. The A grade is an improvement from last years B grade. I am proud of our students and teachers for achieving this level of recognition which is an indica tion that their collective effort met the expectations set by the State Board of Education, states Yoder. Statewide, the number of A schools dropped from 48 percent (1,228) to 29 percent (749). An A school receives bonus money from the state with the amount determined by the number of students enrolled. The drop in school grades was expected after the State Board of Education last year adopted a tougher grading formula. Earlier this month the board agreed to continue a safety net preventing schools from dropping more than a letter grade.

Page 4 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JULY 31, 2013 Rocky is back. Again. Yeah, 67-year-old Syl vester Stallone is getting ready to star in a sev enth Rocky movie. You can tell hes getting up there because instead of running up those fa mous stairs, now Rocky just takes the elevator. JIMMY FALLON Two years ago when Anthony Weiner resigned, he said more embarrassing pictures may come out in the future. Do you know how he knew that? Because he went home after that and started tex ting them. Thats how he knew. JAY LENO A tourist came up to me today and she says, I watch your show on and off. And I said, How do you like it? And she said, Off. DAVID LETTERMAN Another tough day for New York mayoral can didate Anthony Weiner. Or as we know him now, Carlos Danger. Im no prude, but I think texting obscene pictures crosses the line. Even Geraldo Rivera was like, Dude, put some clothes on. CRAIG FERGUSON hand, after the pain he caused his family I think he should drop out of the race. On the other hand, his staying makes my job even easier. CRAIG FERGUSON Its been reported that LeBron James will no longer play Olympic basketball for the United States. LeBron said he wont play for any coun try that has less money than he does. CONAN OBRIEN Taco Bell announced that it will discontinue its line of kids meals because of low sales. You know your foods bad when even little kids say, Im not putting that in my mouth. JIMMY FALLON In Pakistan theres a new TV show about a ing, X-ray vision, and going to college. CONAN OBRIEN Anthony Weiner has been on the Internet hav ing obscene chats, and he uses the name Car los Danger. When Donald Trump heard about it, Trump demanded to see Carlos Dangers birth DAVID LETTERMAN The Vatican announced that the late Pope John Paul II will become a saint after they ap prove a miracle where he cured a woman of se vere brain injury, which is pretty impressive. Not as impressive, though, as the miracle of Anthony Weiner still being married, but thats impressive. JAY LENO Regis Philbin is here today. Regis has a brandnew show on Fox Sports. Regis is working his way up to Telemundo. DAVID LETTERMAN A man in India is claiming to be the oldest man on earth at 141 years old. Larry King said, I al ways liked that kid. CONAN OBRIEN In his speech last week in Latin America, the Pope told the people to give up the false idols of success and money. Thats the same thing NBC told me. JAY LENO At least one case of bubonic plague has been rels across the country, whats Honey Boo Boo going to have for dinner? CRAIG FERGUSON What would happen if bubonic plague came to L.A.? People could be turning ungodly shades of purple. Suffering in the streets. An utter disre gard for human life. And then the plague would hit. CRAIG FERGUSON President Obama gave a big speech on the economy. It was actually longer than his last State of the Union address though it should be noted that he opened with 20 minutes of An thony Weiner jokes. JIMMY FALLON The NFL wants to test its players for human growth hormone but the players are opposed. Players say theres a time and place for blood tests and thats at their murder trials. CONAN OBRIEN A new study found that kids have better re lationships with their parents if theyre friends with them on Facebook. Thats good because if youre a kid whos friends with your parents on Facebook, chances are youre not really friends with anyone else. JIMMY FALLON I have been learning more about this NSA spying scandal. What are the odds that the only person they werent monitoring was Anthony Weiner? JAY LENO LORD ACTON HAS A POINT The most certain test by which we can judge whether a country is really free is the amount of security enjoyed by minorities. -Lord Acton (John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton), historian (1834-1902) Extremist Republican politi cians pandering to an equally extremist right-wing base have declared war on Americas women and minori ties. Security for minorities in America is a joke. There is a constant buzz, particularly from the right, that the mean old federal government is taking peoples rights. All the while puritani cal Republican governors and state legislators are waging a relentless war on a womans right to an abortion. The Texas legislature is the poster child for an oppressive government dictating what a wom an can do with her body. Right-wingers wrap Independence and Constitution to their fore heads, then declare themselves super patriots. Then they use the power of government to force their ideological beliefs on women. North Carolina is the poster child for voter suppression. The Supreme Court voided a re quirement for some states and counties to get fore changing local voting procedures. Before the ink was dry on the Supreme Court ruling, North Carolina was planning voting require ments that will suppress the minority vote. With their newfound freedom to suppress mi nority voting rights, other Southern states and counties affected by the Supreme Court ruling are conjuring up ways to keep the minority vot er out of the voting booth. Right-wingers in the U.S. House are deter mined to bring down the Obama administration. These people hate anything Obama, particu larly ObamaCare. To right-wing conservatives, Obamas attempt to provide people some access to medical care is an evil thing. The House has passed about 30 bills to kill ObamaCare. In their resistance to ObamaCare, the states wont ac cept federal funds that would provide healthcare to thousands of their citizens. These federal bills will never become law, but come election time, politicians have proof of pandering for their right-wing supporters. Poor people and children incur the wrath of the sanctimonious right-wingers. How dare the federal govern ment provide food to hungry children? The Farm Bill is gov ernment welfare for much of the agricultural community. Plenty of gentlemen farmers on the government dole. The Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) is part of the Farm Bill. SNAP, Agriculture, provides nutritional assistance to poor people. Well, Republicans seem to think that any government assistance to its people is socialism. Republicans werent having any of that socialism stuff, like feeding poor people, so they refused to fund the SNAP program. In the county where I live, the SNAP program provides meals for children at 34 schools during the summer recess. Immigrants are going to get pounded by right-wingers until Hell freezes over. There will never be a sensible plan to assimilate some ten million people into American society. The prob lem cannot be solved in a climate so hostile to immigrants. Republicans want border security. OK by me, but lets have fence tax to pay for it. Right-wingers love the idea of an impregnable fence, but they dont love it enough to pay for money to build a border fence. Last weekend I attended a family reunion. My family has been in Northwest Florida since the 1700s. According to an uncle, now deceased, who explored the family genealogy, our ances tors got off the boat somewhere in the Caroli nas. I suspect that they didnt sign anyones book, but beat feet into the hinterlands. Am I a descendant of an illegal immigrant? Probably, but so are most of these right-wingers with their shorts in a wad over the Latino that mows their lawn. The scary thing about extremist politicians in the U.S. Congress and in about half of state legislatures is that there is no way to dislodge them. They are in safe districts thanks to their gerrymandering of political districts and rightwing extremist in these gerrymandered districts who will elect and re-elect them. If this right-wing effort to sabotage and trash the government continues, then it wont be long before someone is writing Americas obituary.

Youth, ages eight to 14 years, experimented with air hardening modeling clay, shaping several imaginative items to take home and paint when dry. Shards, old earthen pottery pieces, that have been found on sandbars on the Apalachicola River were shown along with a pot made recently out of Chipola River clay. The second part of the workshop involved creat ing a colorful collage made from strips of different kinds of papers pasted down. Each student tore and assembled them to their liking, making unique textured compositions. The class seemed to end way too soon. Anna encouraged everyone to keep discovering their artist within and to share in the fun with family and friends by scheduling art parties at home or outside in nature. Make up your own handmade invitations, too! Havana native Author Ray Willis to sign Aug. 8 at Gadsden Library Tate Publishing is proud to announce that Willis will have a book signing event on Thursday, Aug. 8 from 6:30 8 p.m. at the Gadsden County Public Library. Willis, a resident of Havana, will be available to sign copies of his book, For young Ray Willis, growing up wasnt always easy. Take a wild and pas sionate ride back to World War II, Korean War, and Cold War eras, and witness Williss unique experiences from child to adulthood. With a domineering father and the struggles to grow up, his ad ventures, follies, and traumas molded him into the man he became and the memories fol lowed him through his service in the Vietnam War. Travel back to a simpler, friend lier America, before the age of todays sophisticated technology, introversion, and a world too at our sion, happiness, and horror of a boy growing up in an era where kids spent most of their time out of doors, engaged in play with neighbors and pals who often had to use their imaginations to keep themselves amused, and who often became lifelong friends. Reminisce on a time when people valued faceto-face contact and placed great value on how others felt. Ray Williss story is told in the style of one of his favorite authors, Sherwood Anderson, who penned the novel Wines burg, Ohio. If youve ever had an interest in reading a book about conservation called game wardens, and the lengths they often go through to do their jobs, I have a recommendation for you. The book Backcountry Law man is written by retired Lt. Bob Lee and chronicles his 30-year career from 1977 to 2007 with the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission, which became the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission (FWC). The book is particularly well-written and puts you right beside Lee as he interviews suspects or pursues Florida in and around the St. Johns River. He introduces you to Roger Gunter, one of the most notori ous poachers he encounters in his career. Gunter had a regular job but when he was off the clock, he supplemented his income by deer at night and selling the meat. At the close of his career, Lee was able to convince Gunter to sit down and talk about his lifetime of wildlife misdeeds. Gunter, who by then no longer was engaged in poaching, agreed. As they say, the rest is history. One chapter is humorously titled, The Choo-Choo-Poo-Poo Case and shows a gritty side to Lee as he doggedly pursues felony litter ing charges against Amtrak, the national passenger train service, for discharging human waste in its Florida service. Lee was inspired River who were sprayed with dis gusting human waste from a passing Amtrak train. I dont want to ruin the story for you but read the David and Goliath story as Lee went up against the U.S. government in court to stop the barbaric practice. Lee also points out that game wardens sometimes get them selves in funny or embarrassing situations. He details one night he wishes had never happened when he lost the drain plug on his 18foot patrol boat on the Ocklawaha River and his boat sank, leaving Lee to swim out at midnight in gator-infested waters. There are many other fascinat ing chapters and encounters. Retired game warden shares a few tales Best of the Latest Country Charted songs, mixed in with your favorite oldies.

It was one of those where-has-thisbeen-all-my-life moments. Since then, smoked mul let has been one of my favorite treats. There are some restaurants and seafood stores that serve it, but its not that hard to do your self. to get the mullet. Personally, I like to throw my net off the docks and bridges over here in Pensacola or around the oyster bars down at Spring Creek. However, the most reliable method Ive discovered is throwing my wallet on the counter at Joe Pattis Seafood. No matter how or where you get the mul smoking. To do it yourself, leave the scales on and slice the mullet down either side of its connected by the belly. Some folks leave the backbone in, but I like to follow my broth will smoke more evenly. Also, the backbones dont take as long to cook and can be served as an appetizer. Smoking the mullet is a pretty straightfor between sushi and jerky theyll be good. What can make them great is the right marinade or baste. My friend Andy Jones has an excellent recipe that he shared with me recently. Andy melts butter and adds an equal amount of Worces tershire sauce. Then he stirs in lemon juice, Crystal hot sauce, Lawrys sea soned salt and cay enne pepper, all to taste. He brushes that on the mullet once before they hit the smoker and regularly while theyre cooking. In addition mullet from drying out as much. Once you have your mullet smoked, you can serve them as is or with some melted but ter. You can also use them for this simple but tasty dip that my friend Bill Muldoon makes. Its nothing fancy, but dont plan on having leftovers. To make what Im going to call Muldoon Dip, start with all the mullet you have the willpower to leave uneaten. Pick out the meat onions and celery. Mix in some mayonnaise until you get the consistency you want, then season it with lemon juice, cracked pepper and Cajun seasoning. Of course you can play around with both of these recipes, adjust the ingredients and come up with something you like better. As long as you start off or end up with smoked mullet, you really cant go wrong. Smoked Mullet Magic HOW TO MAKE JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South

Singletary, DC ART CAMP Last week in Hosford, creAtive aRts togeTher held their 2nd Annual Art Camp. It is a week camp for kids ages 4 to 14 to come and enjoy doing all different types of art. They did all types of activities from painting canvases and homemade chalkboards, to creat ing self sculptures and tie-dye shirts. The camp was started last summer to give kids in the local area an opportunity to experience creating their own artwork. Inspired by nearby locations, such as Painting with a Twist and Paint Your Art Off, Miranda Ellis felt like it was something that all kids should have the opportunity to experience if art was something they enjoyed. The camp has been put on for the past two sum mers by Miranda Ellis, Kerstin Peddie and Sydney Sanders. The local Hosford Fire Department has been generous enough to participate in this endeavor by allowing the program to be held at their facilities, and it has been a great location. Several parents have offered helping hands and participated in the program this year, and as a result the kids have enjoyed another great year of summer art camp. Thanks to everyone in the community who helped to make this year another success!
