His donor, Alicia Kitchen, 25, is recuperating after spending six hours in surgery as doctors removed her kidney laparoscopically and then placed it inside him. They went into the operating room at 12:28 p.m. on Monday. Alicia was put in a recovery area after her part of the process was completed. By 1:30 a.m., she was wheeled out and into a room. Both are doing well after the lifesaving surgery at Holtz Childrens Hospital in Miami. Brysons parents, Phillip and Rachel Hatcher, are ecstatic at how things have gone. They were warned it could take a couple of days for the transplanted kidney to start working, but within two hours, the little boy was producing urine. His proud mother shared her joy by posting a photo of the bag showing his urine output on her Facebook page. Its almost like it (the kidney) was his the whole time, Rachel said. The couple have also seen an unusual amount of energy in rare condition known as Jouberts Syndrome. Joubert Syndrome affects the area of the brain that controls balance and coordination, and often results in kidney and liver complications. Brysons condition is considered moderately severe. When she was six months pregnant with Bryson, doctors told her he was in renal failure. They knew this day was coming. What they couldnt have seen, though, is how well things would fall into place once Alicia offered to donate her kidney. The two women worked different shifts at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital and knew one another but had not had any recent contact until Brysons need for a transplant became known this past April. Alicia turned out to be an excellent match for the little boy. Alicia was in a lot of pain Tuesday morning but was able to get up and walk a bit that afternoon. they hope she will be discharged in the next day or two but it will be a while longer before she can make the drive home to Calhoun County. Bryson will remain in the hospital for some time before he can go home. Everything went smoothly, Alicia said Tuesday, explaining that she was still waiting for all my organs to settle back into place after her surgery. Despite the effects of her after-surgery medication, she still managed to share her enthusiasm over Brysons progress. Hes already producing urine on his own, she said, adding, Apparently, my kidney is amazing! And, it seems, shes getting some amazing care. Brysons mom is a registered nurse and, along with hovering over her little boy, shes making trips to Alicias room to see that shes well taken care of. She admits she had a talk with the medical staff about their very special patient. This woman gave my child a kidney, she told the nursing staff. She deserves the best care you can give her and I expect you to give it to her.

During a patdown, Hoagland said he found a .25 caliber semi-automatic handgun in Parrish's pocket. The safety was off and it was loaded with six rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber. According to a relative, Parrish said he told Hoagland about the gun in his pocket. He also stated that the arrived at the scene and then "made Parrish's brother called the sheriff turn, Finch called the jail and told the staff to wait until he got there before doing anything. When he arrived, Finch said Parrish's arrest history was checked and showed he was not a convicted felon. The investigation was launched after Hoagland filed a complaint alleging that the sheriff removed an arrest document from the Liberty County Jail. Hoagland resigned May 2 and is now working in Jackson County. Sgt. Lisa Smith, who was working in the jail that night, told investigators with the Florida Department of Law on the arrest, entered the details into the computer log sheet system and handwrote Parrishs name on the jail log.

FDLE Inspector Tom McGraw asked about two lines of the jail log that had been covered with White Out, with other names written in. Smith didnt recall if she had blocked out Parrishs name but said if she did, it would have been at the direction of the sheriff. Finchs attorney, Jimmy Judkins of Tallahassee, said, The records at the jail show exactly what happened in this case and the records speak the truth. The sheriff looked at the facts and said, I believe in the second amendment and were not going to charge him. That is not misconduct at all. That is within the Sheriffs prerogative whether to charge someone or not."

When nurses didnt respond to her request to try another pain medication because what she was given wasnt working, Rachel took care of it. When the stockings put on her legs to Shelly and Rachel pitched in. My legs itched so bad, she said. The two women scratched her legs for her and rubbed her down to soothe her discomfort. The world would be a better place if there were more people like Alicia, said Rachel. To see someone care for your child, and do something like she did, is very humbling. She continued, We needed someone to kind to do something like that. She pointed out that not only did Alicia save her sons life, but saved a second child when she took Bryson off the kidney donor waiting list, allowing an organ to be used by someone else. Its been rough on all of us. Were all tired and run ragged, said Rachel. But its been worth it. As for Alicia, is there anything she would have done differently had she known what a long and painful process it was to be a kidney donor? Just one thing, she said, speaking from her hospital room Tuesday afternoon, perhaps pain medication: I would have brought more pillows.

TALLAHASSEE Record-breaking amounts of rainfall this summer are leading to serious issues for Florida, according to Florida State University researcher and State Climatologist David F. Zierden and his colleagues at the Florida Climate Center. The rain this summer has been frequent, widespread and heavy at times, Zierden said. From South Florida to the Panhandle and Southeast Alabama, and even the western and central parts of the Carolinas, the last three months rank among the wettest ever with many areas setting records. Even in the parts that have received a little less rainfall, saturated soils and standing water are a huge problem. Some of the biggest is sues arising from the recordsetting rainfall are the negative impacts on North Floridas agricultural communities, according to Wil liam Birdsong, an extension specialist and agronomist with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System who works with the Florida Climate Center. are too wet and agricultural equipment movement is hampered by soggy soil. Cotton growers are also hav and other needed treatments. With so much rain and very shallow root systems, researchers say that the cot oxygen from the soils. Cool April temperatures followed by the frequent rains are also making vegetables and melons late to harvest and of lesser quality, and standing water is Even if things start drying out now, there are going to be substantial agricultural losses this year, Zierden said. While North Florida is experiencing agricultural issues, South Florida has en dured the wettest April-July on record going back to 1932. Districtwide rainfall for those four months was 31.70 inches, beating the 1968 mark of 31.55 inches. Lake Okeechobee levels are currently very high at 15.78 inches, requiring large releases to the St. Lucie and Ca loosahatchee peak of the tropical cyclone season approaches. Re searchers say these types of water releases can impact the health of fragile ecosystems in coastal estuaries. Surprisingly, nearly all of this rainfall has not come from tropical depressions or storms, Zierden said. Instead, a recurring pattern of high pressure ridging over the western United States and troughing or lower pressures over the central and eastern United States set itself up time and time again this summer. The subtropical or Bermuda high has been pushed further eastward over the Atlantic Ocean, allowing a region. Add to that an unstable atmosphere and stalled frontal boundaries over the northern Gulf Coast, show ers and thunderstorms have been numerous, frequent and widespread.

The Calhoun-Liberty JOURNAL PHONE (850) 643-3333 thejournal@fairpoint.net T Get ready for opening day with a hunter safety course With the dog days of summer fully upon us, its sometimes hard to even think about hunting. But if youre age 16 to 38 and havent com pleted the states hunter safety course requirement, nows a good time to be thinking about signing up. Dont put it off; August is the best time to take a class in your area. Many of these classes, offered ing season as people scramble to preceding summer months offer smaller class sizes and a better opportunity for students to take a class, because they have more free time than they will once school cranks up and they get busy with homework and school-related activities. People born after May 31, 1975, must complete the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) hunter safety class before they can buy the type of hunting license that allows them to legally hunt alone. A law passed a few years ago by the Florida Legislature enables individuals to hunt without hav ing to complete the states hunter hunt only while under supervision. Its called the Hunter Safety Deferral, and it allows people the opportunity to purchase a license to hunt while under the supervi sion of a licensed hunter who is at least 21 years old and meets the hunter safety requirement. Its designed to encourage expe rienced hunters to teach novice hunters safety, ethics, wildlife and hunting skills and respect for the great outdoors. Its a great incentive for get ting more people to try hunting. Also, I hope, the experienced hunters among us can hook some new folks on the sport we love. However, to hunt by yourself, unsupervised, you have to take and pass a hunter safety class and purchase a regular hunting license. If youre a youngster and al ready hunt, I suggest you go ahead and take a hunter safety class until then, you may hunt under adult supervision and dont need a license. You can register for a hunter safety class by going to MyFWC. com/HunterSafety or by contact ing your nearest FWC regional for your convenience. Theres the traditional course, which is 12 hours of classroom day, or you can opt for taking at home. But, youll still have to sign up for the skills day part. The traditional course is offered during four weekdays or on a Sat urday-Sunday. If you take it during the week, each session is three hours and offered after normal youll spend eight hours Saturday and four hours Sunday morning in the classroom. The remainder of Sunday youll move over to the shooting range to complete your about in the traditional class is Floridas hunting laws. An FWC introduction.

At that point you can purchase a Florida hunting license and get ready for opening day. If you choose to take the hunter safety class online or by above-mentioned material and be given a practice test to prepare you for the last segment the skills day. Skills days take about four hours to complete. Youll learn much of what is taught during the traditional course, including hunting laws and ethics, how to take a shot and where to place the crosshairs. Then youll get to shoot on the range and be given the same standardized test. Register today to take a hunter safety class, cause the 2013-2014 hunting season is just around the corner!

Contact Bill Stoutamire By four years ol d, I already knew that gravity worked differently for Wile E. Coyote than it did for me. Even at that age, I understood cartoons werent real. Thats why it bugs me so much when full-grown non-hunters ask me how I can shoot Bambi. Most are kidding, but its pretty clear that some have formed a lifelong perception of hunting based on a s-era cartoon deer. And it makes me wonder if they would ask a busboy why hes body-slamming Spongebob against the counter. Or go to the paint store and ask if they carry all the colors of the wind. Sure, Walt Disneys work has brought a lot of joy to kids through the years. But Bambis make-believe universe has turned some into real-world morons when it comes to nature. For now, lets set aide the obvious talking animals. As a storytelling device, that one dates back to Aesop. (And if you still believe it, you need more and better medication.) Lets just fo cus on Bambis biggest myths: those tiny seeds liefs as the audiences got older. For example, because of Bambi there are mil lions and millions of grown-ups in this world who believe: 5. Animals are all buddies in the wild. Theres Flower, Thumper, Friend Owl and Bambi. Hooray, the gangs all here and theyre all hungry. So whats on the menu? Looks like Friend Owl will have some leg of Thumper and Flower tartare. Thats because in reality, wild animals arent friends with each other at all. They are at different times predator, prey or ap athetic bystander, but never are they best pals. This is where Friend Owl and Thumper met for their one and only lunch date. In all fairness, Walt had some help from Smokey the Bear on this one. Still, Bambi clearly pres ence. Never mind that controlled burns bring the regenerative tures own wild vent them at the same time. In fact, Mother Nature, pyromaniac that she is, starts more 3. Deer have a wonderful family life. Bambi por trays the father as macho and somewhat aloof, but loving all the same. His mother was pro tective and doting. (Almost like Red and Kitty Foreman in That s Show.) Conveniently, they left out the part where Daddy Deer attacks Bambi for getting too close to his does. And had she lived, Bambis mother would have chased him away from the herd at a young age so he wouldnt breed her or his siblings. If deer could talk, my bet is theyd do so mostly with therapists. 2. Hunters are deers only predators. No tice that the only characters who die in Bambi are killed by man. In the bizarre Bambi uni verse, we never see predation, competition or starvation. But in reality deer dont retire to with the grandkids. Nature takes them in ways that would horrify Cruella de Vil. 1. Man is an intruder in the forest. Pesky humans. If it wasnt for us, Bambi and com pany could go about their daily lives in peace and harmony. The truth is that man has only re cently become a machine-fed, cubicle-dwelling couch potato. Our ancestors were hunter-gath dinner and the rest trying not to be dinner. We were always a part of the food chain and for the time being were near the top. Granted, man has left some deep scars on the natural world. But Bambi lays all the animal worlds problems on hunters, and thats ridicu lous. Every human on this planet has displaced non-human life to one degree or another. And by turning 40 square miles of Florida into an amusement park, Id say Disney has done more than its fair share. The ve biggest myths we learned from BAMBI Calhoun County native Jim McClellan grew up His columns can also be found on his blog, outdoorsdownsouth.com. JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South Two Franklin County residents were arrested July 21 and booked into the Franklin County jail for oystering in permanently closed waters at Eastpoint. Ottis E. Russell (DOB 10/06/65) and Sonya Starr Murray (DOB 12/08/60), both of Carrabelle, face charges for oystering in prohibited area, harvesting oysters between sunset and sunrise, and possession of unculled oysters. Russell was also charged with resisting arrest without violence and possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Resource Protection Jr. and Matt Gore watched Russell and Murray collect ing oysters after dark near Eastpoint Channel. The two were arrested at midnight when they brought in seven bags of oysters. such as near Eastpoint Channel, are permanently closed due to water quality issues. Its important for the viability of the commercial oystering industry that consumers have faith that the oysters they consume are taken from approved oyster ing areas and are as safe as possible, said Capt. Rob Beaton, FWC law enforcement supervisor. What the possibly making someone sick. similar arrests over the last couple of months for oys tering in closed areas.

From the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC) area, 29 STEM Schol ars and seven teachers took advantage of this unique op portunity. This customized experi ence, tailored to the unique needs of these students, was made possible through a partnership with the University of Floridas Center for Precollegiate Education and Train ing (CPET). STEM Scholars represent ing Calhoun County were Calen Masai, a senior at Blountstown High School, and Porter Smith, an Altha School senior. Liberty County High School was represented by seniors Jonathon Hall and Chance Logan. Throughout the week students in teracted with university faculty and graduate students as opportunities were provided to learn about a variety of STEM career options and the postsecondary preparation required. They also gained familiarity with techniques and procedures used in sci ments involving crystallization, DNA extraction, PCR, gel electrophoresis, and construction of morphological and molecular phylogenies of a group of plants. These experiments took place in the Health Science Center and were led by UF College of Medicine students and university faculty members. Students also took advantage of some of the outside classrooms on campus as they learned about soils, explored a Florida wetland ecosystem where they waded through wetlands to collect various types of data, spelunked in a dry cave associated with the Floridan Aquifer, and visited Blue Springs, where water from the Floridan Aquifer emerges. Throughout the week stu dents used university-provided iPads to document their experi ences daily on Edmodo and Blogger. The iPads were also used to create a photographic sentations covering a range of STEM careers. The week was packed full of fun learning and students went home with many new friends and an expanded outlook on STEM career options. The FloridaLearns STEM Scholars Project is funded through the Florida Department of Educations Race to the Top award and involves a partnership among Floridas three educational consortia, which provide critical edu cational support services to Floridas small and rural school districts. The consortia are Panhandle Area Educa tional Consortium in northwest Florida, Heartland Educational Consortium in south central Florida, and North East Florida Educational Consortium in the northeast part of the state. The project is focused on serving gifted and talented students in grades 9 12 who reside in the small and rural school districts served by PAEC, HEC, and NEFEC. The Project affords increased access to rigorous STEM courses, provides collaborative prob lem-solving experiences, and ensures that students are well informed about STEM career options.

Those taking part in container gardening learned about plants, soil, and nutrients. They cooked herb bread and prepared lunch with herbs and fresh produce. Survival camp taught them how to survive in the outdoors with cooking techniques, how clothing to wear hiking, and their favorite activity was making a survival bracelet. The archery day camp taught students the importance of how to listen to commands on the range, shared the competition of the sport as well as the history of archery and introduced them to the parts of the bow and arrow. Last but not least, we held a spa day camp to give the girls skills to cope in todays world. Relaxation exercises were taught by Health Department staff. They also learned the importance of good skin care, and fun ways to paint nails. Participants made their own homemade spa products and other crafts reinforcing concepts taught.

Page 20 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 7, 2013 Glass artist and FSU alumnus returns to launch art program TALLAHASSEE An industry expert and Florida State University alumnus has returned to campus to help launch and direct a one-of-a-kind program in public and architectural art. Kenneth von Roenn, Jr. ran Architectural Glass Art Inc. and its staff of 30 for more than two decades. The renowned glass artist joined Florida State on July 1 to man Studio and associate director of the new Public Art/Architectural Art Program. Von Roenn is ready to impart to students the wisdom of new technologies in designing and building archi tectural glass pieces. I want to accomplish the last goal of my professional career, he said of passing on his years of experience and industry knowledge. A native of Louisville, von Roenn attended Florida State on a full athletic scholarship in springboard and platform diving, earning a Bachelor of Arts in 1970. He merged his loves diving and glass art in the 1980s, earning a masters in architecture from Yale University in 1981 and setting two world records in diving. Von Roenn's resume is peppered with experience in academia. He taught architectural art courses at the University of Kentucky School of Architecture in the s, and was director of the Swain School of Designs in the late s. The new Public Art/Architectural Art Program in the undergraduate art students are embarking on a course of study von Roenn says is unique and necessary for those who want to create art for the public. program prepares students to work in the real world in public art projects, he said. home is vastly different from making a work for the general public, von Roenn said. Imagine the logistics of making and installing the worlds largest glass sculpture, which von Roenn designed and his Louisville studio produced. The 500,000-pound sculpture atop the former Wachovia hurricane force winds. In short, the process of creating public art is very laws, for example and projects involve hundreds of people. Artists should be educated and prepared if theyre going to work in this arena. And when they are not prepared, von Roenn added, projects are derailed by mistakes, cost overruns and construction delays, to the point that there is a resistance to incorporating art in public projects. There are more than 550 public art agencies regularly commissioning projects, he said, but there is no educa Thats what makes FSU so different, von Roenn man Studio, the site of the programs studio classes. The studios craftspeople, working professionals, many of them graduates of Florida State, will serve as mentors for each intern. architectural art. Plans call for the creation of a postbaccalaureate program in public art and architectural art. This program is geared toward working artists who want to further their career and skills, von Roenn said. The programs theoretical work can be done online. Students would then come to campus for two six-week periods in the summer to complete the course of study. This curriculum allows working artists to keep their jobs and not have to relocate. Kenneth von Roenn is seen here at Florida State Universitys Master Craftsman Studio with glass artist and designer Chris Horne at left.

His donor, Alicia Kitchen, 25, is recuperating after spending six hours in surgery as doctors removed her kidney laparoscopically and then placed it inside him. They went into the operating room at 12:28 p.m. on Monday. Alicia was put in a recovery area after her part of the process was completed. By 1:30 a.m., she was wheeled out and into a room. Both are doing well after the lifesaving surgery at Holtz Childrens Hospital in Miami. Brysons parents, Phillip and Rachel Hatcher, are ecstatic at how things have gone. They were warned it could take a couple of days for the transplanted kidney to start working, but within two hours, the little boy was producing urine. His proud mother shared her joy by posting a photo of the bag showing his urine output on her Facebook page. Its almost like it (the kidney) was his the whole time, Rachel said. The couple have also seen an unusual amount of energy in rare condition known as Jouberts Syndrome. Joubert Syndrome affects the area of the brain that controls balance and coordination, and often results in kidney and liver complications. Brysons condition is considered moderately severe. When she was six months pregnant with Bryson, doctors told her he was in renal failure. They knew this day was coming. What they couldnt have seen, though, is how well things would fall into place once Alicia offered to donate her kidney. The two women worked different shifts at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital and knew one another but had not had any recent contact until Brysons need for a transplant became known this past April. Alicia turned out to be an excellent match for the little boy. Alicia was in a lot of pain Tuesday morning but was able to get up and walk a bit that afternoon. they hope she will be discharged in the next day or two but it will be a while longer before she can make the drive home to Calhoun County. Bryson will remain in the hospital for some time before he can go home. Everything went smoothly, Alicia said Tuesday, explaining that she was still waiting for all my organs to settle back into place after her surgery. Despite the effects of her after-surgery medication, she still managed to share her enthusiasm over Brysons progress. Hes already producing urine on his own, she said, adding, Apparently, my kidney is amazing! And, it seems, shes getting some amazing care. Brysons mom is a registered nurse and, along with hovering over her little boy, shes making trips to Alicias room to see that shes well taken care of. She admits she had a talk with the medical staff about their very special patient. This woman gave my child a kidney, she told the nursing staff. She deserves the best care you can give her and I expect you to give it to her.See KIDNEY DONOR on page 3by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorLiberty County School Superintendent Gloria "Gay" Uzzell has entered a plea of not guilty and is demanding a trial by jury, according to the Liberty County Uzzell was removed from office July 17 following her arrest on charges failure to disclose information in a public records request.

Finchs attorney, Jimmy Judkins of Tallahassee, said, The records at the jail show exactly what happened in this case and the records speak the truth. The sheriff looked at the facts and said, I believe in the second amendment and were not going to charge him. That is not misconduct at all.

When nurses didnt respond to her request to try another pain medication because what she was given wasnt working, Rachel took care of it. When the stockings put on her legs to Shelly and Rachel pitched in. My legs itched so bad, she said. The two women scratched her legs for her and rubbed her down to soothe her discomfort. The world would be a better place if there were more people like Alicia, said Rachel. To see someone care for your child, and do something like she did, is very humbling. She continued, We needed someone to kind to do something like that. She pointed out that not only did Alicia save her sons life, but saved a second child when she took Bryson off the kidney donor waiting list, allowing an organ to be used by someone else. Its been rough on all of us. Were all tired and run ragged, said Rachel. But its been worth it. As for Alicia, is there anything she would have done differently had she known what a long and painful process it was to be a kidney donor? Just one thing, she said, speaking from her hospital room Tuesday afternoon, perhaps pain medication: I would have brought more pillows.

TALLAHASSEE Record-breaking amounts of rainfall this summer are leading to serious issues for Florida, according to Florida State University researcher and State Climatologist David F. Zierden and his colleagues at the Florida Climate Center. The rain this summer has been frequent, widespread and heavy at times, Zierden said. From South Florida to the Panhandle and Southeast Alabama, and even the western and central parts of the Carolinas, the last three months rank among the wettest ever with many areas setting records. Even in the parts that have received a little less rainfall, saturated soils and standing water are a huge problem. Some of the biggest is sues arising from the recordsetting rainfall are the negative impacts on North Floridas agricultural communities, according to Wil liam Birdsong, an extension specialist and agronomist with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System who works with the Florida Climate Center. are too wet and agricultural equipment movement is hampered by soggy soil. Cotton growers are also havand other needed treatments. With so much rain and very shallow root systems, researchers say that the cot oxygen from the soils. Cool April temperatures followed by the frequent rains are also making vegetables and melons late to harvest and of lesser quality, and standing water is Even if things start drying out now, there are going to be substantial agricultural losses this year, Zierden said. While North Florida is experiencing agricultural issues, South Florida has en dured the wettest April-July on record going back to 1932. Districtwide rainfall for those four months was 31.70 inches, beating the 1968 mark of 31.55 inches. Lake Okeechobee levels are currently very high at 15.78 inches, requiring large releases to the St. Lucie and Ca loosahatchee peak of the tropical cyclone season approaches. Re searchers say these types of water releases can impact the health of fragile ecosystems in coastal estuaries. Surprisingly, nearly all of this rainfall has not come from tropical depressions or storms, Zierden said. Instead, a recurring pattern of high pressure ridging over the western United States and troughing or lower pressures over the central and eastern United States set itself up time and time again this summer. The subtropical or Bermuda high has been pushed further eastward over the Atlantic Ocean, allowing a region. Add to that an unstable atmosphere and stalled frontal boundaries over the northern Gulf Coast, showers and thunderstorms have been numerous, frequent and widespread.

The Calhoun-Liberty JOURNALPHONE (850) 643-3333 thejournal@fairpoint.net TGet ready for opening day with a hunter safety courseWith the dog days of summer fully upon us, its sometimes hard to even think about hunting. But if youre age 16 to 38 and havent com pleted the states hunter safety course requirement, nows a good time to be thinking about signing up. Dont put it off; August is the best time to take a class in your area. Many of these classes, offered ing season as people scramble to preceding summer months offer smaller class sizes and a better opportunity for students to take a class, because they have more free time than they will once school cranks up and they get busy with homework and school-related activities. People born after May 31, 1975, must complete the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) hunter safety class before they can buy the type of hunting license that allows them to legally hunt alone. A law passed a few years ago by the Florida Legislature enables individuals to hunt without having to complete the states hunter hunt only while under supervision. Its called the Hunter Safety Deferral, and it allows people the opportunity to purchase a license to hunt while under the supervision of a licensed hunter who is at least 21 years old and meets the hunter safety requirement. Its designed to encourage expe rienced hunters to teach novice hunters safety, ethics, wildlife and hunting skills and respect for the great outdoors. Its a great incentive for get ting more people to try hunting. Also, I hope, the experienced hunters among us can hook some new folks on the sport we love. However, to hunt by yourself, unsupervised, you have to take and pass a hunter safety class and purchase a regular hunting license. If youre a youngster and al ready hunt, I suggest you go ahead and take a hunter safety class until then, you may hunt under adult supervision and dont need a license. You can register for a hunter safety class by going to MyFWC. com/HunterSafety or by contact ing your nearest FWC regional for your convenience. Theres the traditional course, which is 12 hours of classroom day, or you can opt for taking at home. But, youll still have to sign up for the skills day part. The traditional course is offered during four weekdays or on a Sat urday-Sunday. If you take it during the week, each session is three hours and offered after normal youll spend eight hours Saturday and four hours Sunday morning in the classroom. The remainder of Sunday youll move over to the shooting range to complete your about in the traditional class is Floridas hunting laws. An FWC introduction.

At that point you can purchase a Florida hunting license and get ready for opening day. If you choose to take the hunter safety class online or by above-mentioned material and be given a practice test to prepare you for the last segment the skills day. Skills days take about four hours to complete.

STOUTAMIRE INSURANCE INC.Contact Bill Stoutamire By four years old, I already knew that gravity worked differently for Wile E. Coyote than it did for me. Even at that age, I understood cartoons werent real. Thats why it bugs me so much when full-grown non-hunters ask me how I can shoot Bambi. Most are kidding, but its pretty clear that some have formed a lifelong perception of hunting based on a s-era cartoon deer. And it makes me wonder if they would ask a busboy why hes body-slamming Spongebob against the counter. Or go to the paint store and ask if they carry all the colors of the wind. Sure, Walt Disneys work has brought a lot of joy to kids through the years. But Bambis make-believe universe has turned some into real-world morons when it comes to nature. For now, lets set aide the obvious talking animals. As a storytelling device, that one dates back to Aesop. (And if you still believe it, you need more and better medication.) Lets just focus on Bambis biggest myths: those tiny seeds liefs as the audiences got older. For example, because of Bambi there are mil lions and millions of grown-ups in this world who believe: 5. Animals are all buddies in the wild. Theres Flower, Thumper, Friend Owl and Bambi. Hooray, the gangs all here and theyre all hungry. So whats on the menu? Looks like Friend Owl will have some leg of Thumper and Flower tartare. Thats because in reality, wild animals arent friends with each other at all. They are at different times predator, prey or ap athetic bystander, but never are they best pals. This is where Friend Owl and Thumper met for their one and only lunch date. In all fairness, Walt had some help from Smokey the Bear on this one. Still, Bambi clearly pres ence. Never mind that controlled burns bring the regenerative tures own wildvent them at the same time. In fact, Mother Nature, pyromaniac that she is, starts more 3. Deer have a wonderful family life. Bambi por trays the father as macho and somewhat aloof, but loving all the same. His mother was pro tective and doting. (Almost like Red and Kitty Foreman in That s Show.) Conveniently, they left out the part where Daddy Deer attacks Bambi for getting too close to his does. And had she lived, Bambis mother would have chased him away from the herd at a young age so he wouldnt breed her or his siblings. If deer could talk, my bet is theyd do so mostly with therapists. 2. Hunters are deers only predators. No tice that the only characters who die in Bambi are killed by man. In the bizarre Bambi uni verse, we never see predation, competition or starvation. But in reality deer dont retire to with the grandkids. Nature takes them in ways that would horrify Cruella de Vil. 1. Man is an intruder in the forest. Pesky humans. If it wasnt for us, Bambi and com pany could go about their daily lives in peace and harmony. The truth is that man has only re cently become a machine-fed, cubicle-dwelling couch potato. Our ancestors were hunter-gathdinner and the rest trying not to be dinner. We were always a part of the food chain and for the time being were near the top. Granted, man has left some deep scars on the natural world. But Bambi lays all the animal worlds problems on hunters, and thats ridicu lous. Every human on this planet has displaced non-human life to one degree or another. And by turning 40 square miles of Florida into an amusement park, Id say Disney has done more than its fair share. The ve biggest myths we learned from BAMBI Calhoun County native Jim McClellan grew up His columns can also be found on his blog, outdoorsdownsouth.com. JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South Two Franklin County residents were arrested July 21 and booked into the Franklin County jail for oystering in permanently closed waters at Eastpoint. Ottis E. Russell (DOB 10/06/65) and Sonya Starr Murray (DOB 12/08/60), both of Carrabelle, face charges for oystering in prohibited area, harvesting oysters between sunset and sunrise, and possession of unculled oysters. Russell was also charged with resisting arrest without violence and possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Resource Protection Jr. and Matt Gore watched Russell and Murray collect ing oysters after dark near Eastpoint Channel. The two were arrested at midnight when they brought in seven bags of oysters. such as near Eastpoint Channel, are permanently closed due to water quality issues. Its important for the viability of the commercial oystering industry that consumers have faith that the oysters they consume are taken from approved oyster ing areas and are as safe as possible, said Capt.

From the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC) area, 29 STEM Scholars and seven teachers took advantage of this unique opportunity. This customized experi ence, tailored to the unique needs of these students, was made possible through a partnership with the University of Floridas Center for Precollegiate Education and Train ing (CPET). STEM Scholars represent ing Calhoun County were Calen Masai, a senior at Blountstown High School, and Porter Smith, an Altha School senior. Liberty County High School was represented by seniors Jonathon Hall and Chance Logan. Throughout the week students in teracted with university faculty and graduate students as opportunities were provided to learn about a variety of STEM career options and the postsecondary preparation required. They also gained familiarity with techniques and procedures used in sciments involving crystallization, DNA extraction, PCR, gel electrophoresis, and construction of morphological and molecular phylogenies of a group of plants. These experiments took place in the Health Science Center and were led by UF College of Medicine students and university faculty members. Students also took advantage of some of the outside classrooms on campus as they learned about soils, explored a Florida wetland ecosystem where they waded through wetlands to collect various types of data, spelunked in a dry cave associated with the Floridan Aquifer, and visited Blue Springs, where water from the Floridan Aquifer emerges. Throughout the week stu dents used university-provided iPads to document their experi ences daily on Edmodo and Blogger. The iPads were also used to create a photographic sentations covering a range of STEM careers. The week was packed full of fun learning and students went home with many new friends and an expanded outlook on STEM career options. The FloridaLearns STEM Scholars Project is funded through the Florida Department of Educations Race to the Top award and involves a partnership among Floridas three educational consortia, which provide critical educational support services to Floridas small and rural school districts. The consortia are Panhandle Area Educa tional Consortium in northwest Florida, Heartland Educational Consortium in south central Florida, and North East Florida Educational Consortium in the northeast part of the state. The project is focused on serving gifted and talented students in grades 9 12 who reside in the small and rural school districts served by PAEC, HEC, and NEFEC. The Project affords increased access to rigorous STEM courses, provides collaborative problem-solving experiences, and ensures that students are well informed about STEM career options.

Those taking part in container gardening learned about plants, soil, and nutrients. They cooked herb bread and prepared lunch with herbs and fresh produce. Survival camp taught them how to survive in the outdoors with cooking techniques, how clothing to wear hiking, and their favorite activity was making a survival bracelet. The archery day camp taught students the importance of how to listen to commands on the range, shared the competition of the sport as well as the history of archery and introduced them to the parts of the bow and arrow. Last but not least, we held a spa day camp to give the girls skills to cope in todays world. Relaxation exercises were taught by Health Department staff. They also learned the importance of good skin care, and fun ways to paint nails. Participants made their own homemade spa products and other crafts reinforcing concepts taught. We would like to thank the volunteers who helped with these programs this summer: Stafford from the Liberty County Health Department, David Cook from the Florida camps would not have been possible.
