Anna Rebecca Chambers reportedly suffered a broken hip and broken pelvis as well as lacerations to her head in the 4:30 p.m. crash. She was transported by ambulance to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Chambers was on CR 12 South between the two Lake Mystic roads when her 2005 four-door Kia hydroplaned during a rainstorm, according to FHP Trooper David Cox. He said she hit the brakes, went into the ditch and drove head-on into the utility pole. The trooper said the car's tires were bad and cited Chambers for careless driving and faulty equipment. The best thing to do when you start to lose control of your vehicle on a wet road is to try to "steer out of it" instead of hitting the brakes, according to Cox. Two other weatherrelated accidents were reported in the Hosford area that afternoon. Toni Diana Grant of Tallahassee was not hurt when her 2003 Honda four-door hydroplaned and went off Hwy. 65 just before 6 p.m. during the storm. The accident happened about three miles south of Telogia. A second accident was reported around that same time but the vehicle apparently left the scene before emergency responders arrived. ELECTION RESULTS 97 66 58 Blair, Williams in Nov. runoff for Ward I seat Two hundred and twen ty-one voters cast a bal lot but a winner was not declared in yesterday's Blountstown City Coun cil election for Ward I. Instead, one candidate was eliminated and the remaining two will meet in a runoff in November. The runoff is neces sary because the winner needs a clear majority of 50 percent of the vote plus one, according to Calhoun County Elec tions Supervisor Margie Laramore. Incumbent Blount stown City Councilman Clifford Jackson did not seek another term for the Ward I seat. 3 vehicles collide at intersection PAGE 3 Man arrested with mobile meth lab PAGE 3 PAGE 10 SEE PAGE 3 LCHS Softball team gets championship rings...12 Bristol man to face 17 years in prison and 17 years probation McDaniel pleads guilty to four counts of lewd/ lascivious molestation Journal Editor A 47-year-old Bristol man charged with capital felony sexual battery has waived his right to trial and entered a plea of guilty on four charges of lewd or lascivious molestation on a child. In exchange for the plea, the state dropped sexual battery charges against Roger McDaniel of Bristol. The charges involve four different girls, ranging in age from seven years old to ten, according to Assistant State Attorney Richard Combs. Roger McDaniel agreed to accept a sentence of 17 years in prison, followed by 17 years of probation. His sentence will be imposed Sept. 9, said Combs. McDaniel was arrested last year after an eight-year-old girl he allegedly abused pointed him out in a store and told her father, "I don't like him because he kisses little girls." The youngster, who called McDaniel "Uncle Roger" later told her father about sexual activity that occurred between McDaniel and other young relatives.

On Tuesday, July 30, 2013, a gold Cadillac driven by Curtis Jermaine Carter approached the Investigator's vehicle from behind at a high rate of speed. The vehicle began weaving and attempting to pass the investigator, Lt. Jared Nichols. Lt. Nichols allowed the vehicle to pass him on the vehicle for following too closely and failure to maintain a single lane. A pill bottle was located in the front passenger seat and Carter's driver's license was suspended. The pill bottle contained less than 20 grams of loose leaf cannabis and numerous pills. More drugs were located in the door compartment. Carter was arrested on the scene and charged with possession of a controlled substance (felony) and less than 20 grams.

While trying to locate Tracey Stacey for a high number of pseudoepedrine purchases, Calhoun County Sheriffs Office Investigators Lt. Todd Wheetley and Lt. Jared Nichols spotted him on a bicycle at the intersection of SR 20 and Pear Street, traveling northbound. Stacey, 46, was found in the alley behind Fairpoint Communications. While speaking with him, the Calhoun County Sheriffs Office investigators observed two plastic bottles in a white bag located in the basket of Staceys bicycle. One bottle contained a clear liquid (bi-layer liquid resulting from methamphetamine manufacturing) and the other contained a red pill binder (used as a reaction vessel). Other meth production materials were also located. Stacey was placed under arrest and charged with manufacture and possession of methamphetamine. He is being held without bond.

TRACEY STACEY Meth lab on wheels by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor Two people were taken to the emergency room at CalhounLiberty Hospital with non-in capacitating injuries following a three-vehicle collision at the intersection of Hwy. 71 N and Charlie Johns Street just after 5 p.m. Tuesday in Blountstown. Darryl Temple said he cited Johnny P. Griffen of Blount stown for failure to yield the right of way after his 1998 Toy ota pickup pulled into the path of a westbound 2004 Ford Ex plorer on Hwy. 71. Griffen was at the stop sign on Charlie Johns Street, facing south, when he drove into the path of Ruby Widner Ward of Altha. The two collided under the light in the middle of the inter section. The impact sent both vehi cles to the opposite side of the intersection, where Debra Lyn Blair of Blountstown was wait ing at the north-facing stop sign on Charlie Johns Street. Wards vehicle struck Blairs car. Griffen and Ward were trans ported to Calhoun-Liberty Hos pital. Both of their vehicles were totaled. Blairs car had substantial front end damage, according to Temple. Three vehicles collide at Hwy. 71 & Charlie Johns intersection The red pickup involved in Tuesdays wreck is just out of view to the right of the Ford Explorer that was knocked into a car waiting at a stop sign be tween Harveys and the credit union.

Open Enrollment FOR VPK Voluntary PreKindergarten FEMA grant will help form statewide assessment $1.1 million project to examine Floridas sinkhole vulnerability TALLAHASSEE A $1.08 million federal grant will allow the Florida Geological Survey, in conjunction with the Florida Divi sion of Emergency Management, to conduct a statewide assessment of sinkhole vulnerability in Florida starting this fall. The grant was funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in conjunction with the Florida Division of Emergency Management. The three-year project will start with geologists conducting a one-year pilot study in Hamilton, Columbia and Suwannee counties. The results of the pilot study will culminate in the production of a model that will generate a map showing the relative vulnerability of these counties to potential sinkhole formation. The resulting model will then be used to produce a statewide map during the following two years. Floridas geology is complex and this grant will allow the Florida Geological Survey to pro standing of sinkhole occurrence throughout the state, said Dr. Jon Arthur, Director of the Florida Geological Survey. Ultimately, this assessment will aid planners, builders and environmental regulators for the betterment of human health and safety as well as the economy. Sinkholes are a common, natural feature of Florida's landscape because Florida sits on sev eral thousand feet of porous limestone. Porous limestone aquifers can produce billions of gallons of fresh water. Naturally acidic groundwater and rainwater dissolves limestone, leaving behind void spaces. The resulting void spaces can lead to the forma tion of sinkholes, caves, and springs, all of which are called karst features. The information gathered will help improve the State of Florida Enhanced Hazard Mitigation Plan risk as sessment section on sinkholes as well as its corresponding mitigation strategies. An appendix to the State Hazard Mitigation Plan will be The Florida Division of Emer gency Management is pleased to be a part of this project, said FDEM Director Bryan W. Koon. Sinkholes present a potential haz ard to many Floridians throughout the state. By better understanding sinkhole vulnerability in Florida, we will be better able to prevent loss of life and property and keep Floridas families safe. The request was sparked by Tropical Storm Debby, which brought heavy rainfall to Florida in June 2012, triggering the formation of sinkholes. In the months lead ing up to Tropical Storm Debbys record rainfall event, most of Florida had been experiencing extreme drought conditions, re sulting in lowered water levels in our aquifers. The result was an outbreak of sinkholes when rainwater caused dry underground voids -previ mitigation planning to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of sinkholes on Floridas population and infrastructure; bet ter understanding of sinkhole susceptibility; an increased understanding of Florida's karst ter rain and hydrogeology, and how that affects the state. The assessment will help environmental regulators, growth management planners, the construction industry and local governments in developing protective designs as additional in formation about Florida's geology will facilitate planning for possible sinkhole occurrences. For more information about sinkholes, visit DEP's Online Newsroom or the Florida Geologi cal Survey website.

WITH A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Write: The Calhoun-Liberty Journal P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321 To the editor, We the people have four ways to keep the govern ment (our so-called public servants) in check and bind them from mischief with the chains of the Constitution: 1) the ballot box, 2) the soap box, 3) the jury box and the 4) cartridge box. The focus here is solely on the jury box including grand juries. The founding fathers designed it so government must come before the common man (juries) to get permis sion to enforce any and all laws. Jurors have the duty and right to stem the tide of oppression and tyranny unjust laws regardless of what the corrupt cops/courts and power hungry prosecutors will declare. Unchecked unrestricted power is the very essence and foundation of despotism and tyranny. Dont take my word for it though check it out and look it up your original intent of the founding fathers (and remains so today) was as shown in the following quotes. The jury has the right to judge both the law as well as the facts in controversy." John Jay, 1st Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. The jury has the power to determine both law and the facts." Samuel Chase, U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Jurors have a sacred trust for justice to be achieved. They should not be a rubber stamp for the state and they must in good conscience put the law itself on trial as well as the parties in a case and never yield their convictions or vote. For example: The Florida statute prohibiting carrying concealed weapons violates the 2nd amendment and thus is wholly unconstitutional. All laws contrary to the Supreme Law of the land are null and void as that statute is and anyone charged with that offense should be acquitted and found not guilty. Mere possession of arms however carried is not evil,immoral or scriptur ally wrong. Thats the moral and proper role of citizen jurors especially grand juries and the real power of the jury system. It is high time and long overdue to say the least for We the People to resume exercising that right/role to rein in our out of control government at all levels (lo cal, federal and state) now. Lex Mala Lex Nulla An evil law is no law. Honor Your Oath. Tom Roberts, Bristol Juries: A sacred trust

S ummers heavy on the redlands. Cool running creeks scoot snakelike through woodlands as if thirsty for a Chipola River drink. August burns barefooted hot in the backforty woods, off the Interstate 10 superslab, the wilting sun sheen dulling the oaks and sweetgums greening the Panhandle, from Pensacola to Blountstown. So we gather: bloodkin with thin cottonytop manes and age-eroded faces and bothersome extra poundage flashing the long years; cousins totaling Scots-Irish generations, the young spry and windmillingly animated. Kinfolks scattered about the broad landscape, now remote from family closeness I knew as the senior grandchild of Columbus Bennett Bowden and Mamie Nancy Walker Bowden, who wagon-loaded their growing Southeast Alabama family and mulepower brought them into Chipola Country in 1920. And now their generations are mostly connected by Facebook or others techno sunny Saturday, the spirit of family unity draws us back to the heartland of growing up country and bellybuster adventurous, squeezing boyhood toes in the soft sandy rim of the little limestone-bottomed river sacred to the Chatot Indians in a time before Hernando de Soto. They tote bags of home-cooked groceries mixed with store-bought fried chicken, potato salad, banana pudding and Grandma Bowdens symbolic peanut butter cake into the 1933 log clubhouse, a handsomely restored Blountstown landmark and a heritage centerpiece of the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement.

Near noon, a vicious assault on chickenn dumplins, sweet tea, butter beans, white-acre peas and a cafeteria of sweet-tooth, dietdestructive delicacies. The place family legends and genealogical talk. Grandsires and their siblings huddle, calculating the uncle-auntcousin lineage. No gentry here. Common folk, yeoman ancestry born of the good rural red earth, sharing heart-warming yesterdays when Grandma Bowdens cornbread hoecakes washed down gently with cool buttermilk. When Grandpa Bowden clenched his pipe, exhaling red-clay Alabama stories is if he never left. When you could escape hot summer, cooling off in Jesse Bowdens Altha-famous three-block limestone icehouse. R eunions are innocent, joyful pilgrimages, sweet wine of family continuity and comforting stability. Hear again the ancient anthem, Precious Memories, cementing a loving continuity to the scattered new generations; remembering ancestral Alabamians, building log cabins and heart-pine, dog-run houses on stump-knobbed hillsides, peapatching, chopping cotton, trading mules, praying for rain on Sunday mornings in churches standing ageless on the back roads of all yesterdays. The innocent, beaming young and the stoic aged woven into an ancestral web sustaining and strengthening us with resurrected faded portraiture, dusted for a day of remembrance; a hurried living scrapbook of long-gone folks whose stories re-emerge embellished bigger than life. As swift as the hurried, worried world turns, ancestry has profoundly everlasting roots. No need to embellish. Precious Memories stir the blood.

WASHINGTON Imag ine a major national news paper online and a perma nent advertisement with multiple categories and teasers in one long column down the right side of the front page and what you have is The Washington Post and Amazon. Its not a new development when a wealthy person buys a media property. Weve seen it happen with Rupert Murdoch and The Wall Street Journal and Sam Zell with The Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times Murdoch pulled it off and the Journal remains a leading national newspaper. Zell took the company for bankruptcy. No wonder people who care about journalism reacted with alarm at the news that Boston Red Sox owner John Henry was buying the Boston Globe for $70 million, and Amazon fou nder Jeff Bezos was acquiring The these iconic newspapers, and chump change for the billionaire buyers. But once the initial shock wore off, especially with the Post, which had been in the same family for 80 years, the new ownership could be good for journalism. Its a new day, and for any media outlet to survive it lennial generation. now in a position to apply his innovative mind and technological savvy to a newspaper industry that by modern standards is still stuck in the horse-and-buggy era. Millennials, born between 1980 and 2000, are the future, and Bezos knows what they like, and how to draw them to his Amazon site. Young people like everything on line, and they like it free. The challenge for newspapers is how to make money in this environment. Bezos is spending his own personal fortune to buy the Post, but that will not preclude him from drawing upon Amazon to run a permanent ad in the paper. He will take the company private, which could be a good thing for the public trust that we associate with the Graham family and their ownership of the Post The millennials are an even larger generation than the Baby Boomers (1946 1964) and this younger cohort is likely to have the same massive impact on life and culture and societal norms as the Boomers. The Boomers moved through soci ety like a tidal wave, creating opportunities, expanding colleges, buying cars and houses, and leaving their imprint on everything they touched. Millennials are very different. Theyre not buying cars; they prefer living in cities where they can walk to restaurants and stores, and theyre highly mobile, happy to rent as opposed to becoming suburban homeowners. Figuring out what they want and need in terms of news, and how to reach them, is the key to the Posts future. In recent years, the Post has been starved for re sources, shutting down foreign bureaus, laying off staffers, and shrinking newspaper pages. Bezos doesnt have any obvious ideological bias, so lets give him the that upholds the reputation for quality that the Post has only survive but could thrive. Bezos is a businessman, motivated by the challenge of reinventing a newspaper that has been slowly dying and whose leaders have basically conceded defeat. They couldnt come up with a business model that could leapfrog over the red ink and chart another path. Taking the long view is Bezos specialty. He with stood several years of losses at Amazon and a great deal of mockery from his friends before the company took off. He has so much money now that his investment in the Post is less than one percent of his net worth. something far more important to him on the line, and thats his reputation as a living symbol of American ingenuity, the next Steve Jobs. The Washington Post and Amazon may turn out newspaper publishers since the coming of the Internet. A high quality online paper will draw readers, espe cially if Bezos makes it free. And Amazon will have continuous access to a large audience to sell thousands of products. Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 14, 2013 COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND by Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Bezos and the missing model tions of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome each time. The right-wingers in the House have passed 40 bills to end ObamaCare, defund ObamaCare or just trash ObamaCare. So, Republicans wait with baited breadth for one of these bills to end ObamaCare. Gives a new meaning to political insanity. Stuff that travels on the Internet is a good example of the paranoia and lunacy that exist in American society. Conserva with Obama hate mail; impeach Obama; Obama isnt an American citizen; Obama is a Kenyan; the Socialists are coming; the Communists are coming; ObamaCare is the devils work; Obama is suppressing religion; Obama is a Muslim; Obama is trashing the Constitution. Scary stuff. Scary to know that so many people are crazy as loons. But, here we are Loonyville. The looniest of the loony are House Re publicans and some Republican senators that are owned lock, stock and barrel by the Tea Party. The Tea Party elected these drones for one purpose: destroy Obama and shut down the federal government. These people werent elected and sent to Washington to govern, to do what is best for the American people; they were elected and sent to Washington for one purpose: undermine the government. Tea Partiers and their elected minions Declaration of Independence and Consti tution to their foreheads and declare themselves super patriots. Really? The Congress is on vacation. A vacation from what? Work? Thats a joke since the Congress does nothing resembling work. I forgot, passing 40 lets kill ObamaCare bills is their idea of work. The 40 kill ObamaCare bills are nothing but sucking up and pandering to their right-wing base. But, conserva tive patriots they are. Dont believe it. Just ask them. This place called America is in a bad way. What we are experiencing is extremist politics; extremist politicians elected by a small extremist segment of the electorate. and their supporters are in safe districts thanks to Republican dominated state leg islatures that gerrymandered the drawing of their district boundaries. Members of Congress are holding town meetings during their August vacation. Some of the members beholding to the Tea Party, read that as owned by the Tea Party, are getting their comeuppance from their Tea Party masters. On one TV event, the Tea Partiers in the audience were demanding a yes or no to the question of, Will you vote to kill ObamaCare? The Tea Party politi woman who shouted that she wanted it killed because we are conservatives. Really? Denying people medical care is a conservative value? If so, count me out. Evil comes to mind. But in another confrontation be tween constituents liberals, who was age 62, made the point that with ObamaCare, he was now able to get medical insurance, but why was the drew derisive comments from the crowd. Ive lived in Europe and Asia. All in dustrialized countries have some form of universal healthcare. Right-wingers wont admit it, but the U.S. also has universal healthcare. It is called Medicare. Im denied medical services. Medicare also holds the line on Medical expenses. The doctor charges $200 for a visit; Medicare authorizes $120 for the visit and pays $100. You or your secondary insurance pays the remaining $20. Major insurance companies also do not pay the full amount billed for a medical procedure. So there are some controls on growing healthcare costs. So, those of us who have made it to healthcare. ObamaCare isnt universal but it provides a means for millions of people to have access to some degree of medical care. Got an existing medical condition, with ObamaCare you can get medical insurance. Will it cost you? You bet, but unlike before ObamaCare, if you had a serious problem like cancer, you were a dead man walking. The ignorance surrounding the lets kill ObamaCare is astounding. Apparent ly the morons in congress dont know the difference between mandatory spending and discretionary spending. ObamaCare is a law funded by mandatory spending and cant be defunded by withholding funds, as can a law or program funded with discretionary funds. Id like to see a couple of things. Id like to see any conservative on Medicare burn his or her Medicare card, then go a medical policy. When hell freezes over. Id also like to be in the room with the conservative who has no medical insur ance and who refuses to get insurance when the doctor says, Bud, you got cancer and things dont look so good. Be a real test of his or her conservative values. Historians and sociologists will write a gazillion books on this distorted, danger ous period of American history. Nothing good can come from these extremist political events that have been set into motion by extreme political groups and politicians, and by the people who put C ORNER Jerry Cox is a retired military OXS Right-wing insanity...here we are Loonyville The NFL says they are going to crack down on excessive celebrations this season.

AUGUST 14, 2013 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 So, I had a chance to eat at one of the hippest, coolest restaurants in Nashville recent ly and guess what: The food they served was all stuff our great grandpar ents would have recognized and ap preciated espe cially since all of it comes from the Southeast and much of it comes from the garden out back. The restaurant is called Husk and the Nashville lo cation, Chef Sean Brocks second, opened earlier this summer to rave reviews. Not being a food critic, I cant do justice to the sub tle details, but I have to tell you that the brunch I had there was among the best meals Ive ever eaten. For some of the vegetables, local means right here. We started off with some biscuits that could have been a meal by themselves. grilled over hickory embers and served over cabbage with tomato corn meal gravy. Let go out just like that. My son, Jimmy, got a smoked, aged-beef cheeseburger that was served on a freshbaked roll, with the cheese provided from a local creamery. Mary had a coddled egg from a local farm, while some others in our group had French toast prepared with homemade bread. Our brunch was followed by dessert, which we polished off quickly, despite insisting only minutes before that we couldnt eat another bite. In the spirit of full disclosure, my sisterin-law, Lisa Donovan, is the pastry chef at Husk, so I knew we were in for a treat. For years, Lisa has resurrected and perfected her old family recipes including a phe nomenal buttermilk pie and at least part of the extra weight I carry around these days is her doing. What really impressed me about Husk (in addition to the great meal, of course) is the mindset that inspired it. Brock, a native of rural Virginia, grew up eating and canning food from his familys garden. He obvi ously appreciates his heritage because hes spent years researching and locating indig enous foods that predate the Civil War. In If it aint Southern, it aint walking in the door. And its very clear that he knows exactly whats walk ing in that door. The servers dont waste a lot of time talking about complex cooking pro cesses or exotic ingredients, but they will tell you in great detail about the farm or dairy where their food comes from and about the people who provide it. According to Lisa, this presents a couple of unique challenges to the chefs. Serving only things that are fresh and in season means that the menu is constantly changing. Because they are working with familiar recipes and ingre dients, they have to bring their A game every day. Its one thing to serve some obscure dish that no one has ever had before. People will judge the dish based on the chefs interpre tation. But, as Lisa says, If you put some thing as simple as an apple pie on the menu, it had better be the best apple pie anyone has ever tasted. This is refreshing to me because most of us from the rural South are only a genera tion or two removed from people who lived almost entirely off the land. They ate what they grew, raised, caught or killed. They passed down recipes that were based on sometimes hundreds of years of trial and error. Its a shame that so much of that wis dom has now been lost to time. Granted, processing food has made it easier to distribute it more widely, and modern sterilization and packaging meth ods. However, weve paid a price in terms of freshness and taste. Its good to see those qualities making a comeback now. Fortunately, Husk isnt the only restau rant thats returning to its roots. The farmto-table trend is catching on and people everywhere are taking a greater interest in where their meals are coming from. and gather our food, it means were sud at least where the rest of the world is con cerned.

The Journal competed with other publications with circu lations under 7,000. by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorJustin Ranew admits he felt kind of bad about not telling the truth to Blountstown Police Chief Rodney Smith last Wednesday night. The two met in passing on the Apalachicola River, where both were on the lookout for alligators. Smith is a longtime gator hunter and knew that Smith had answered Ranews many questions about how to catch an alligator and had given him plenty of advice. Ranew had to do some quick thinking when Smith pulled up to his boat and kidded him and his hunting partner, Tommy Davis, 43, about being so close to the bank. Are yall gator joked. Ranew replied that he had pulled near the bank to make a cell phone call. Smith was soon on his way and Ranew and Davis turned their attention back to the monster-sized creature lurking nearby in the dark water. He had no idea wed been messing with a not to tell him the truth...but he would have come LEARNING THE GATOR Ranew and Davis each drew two tags each in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) annual statewide alligator harvest. Both work together at Big Bend Bait and Tackle in Blountstown, where theyve heard plenty of tales from other hunters going after the tough-skinned creatures that inhabit the river. Ranew admits his mother, Ann Ranew of Clarksville, wasnt as thrilled as he was when But a collision with a stump would be the least of anyones worries after seeing the huge creature they went after. They worked for six hours the the best way to take him. After hearing Ranews story of what happened that second night, one might think the gator was actually teaching him a few things. gators before, but bar none, this was the most him out of the water they were surprised to have a 13-footer. Even after a day in the cooler, the gator weighed in at 900 pounds. The men were told by an area wildlife meat processor that the gator could have been 100 years old. FIRST NIGHT ON THE RIVER They got off work at 6:30 p.m. and were on the river in a 16-foot aluminum boat by 7 p.m. The men located the big gator around 10 p.m. on Wednesday night, Aug. 15 near Mason Sandbar, about a half mile from the Blountstown Boat Landing. All said. worked some smaller alligators and observed how they reacted differently to spotlights and calls. Once they found the big one they wanted to go after, they learned he would respond to a call but would disappear under the water when the spotlight hit him. He seemed as interested in them as they were in him. They were about 30 yards from the bank when he rammed their boat twice, hitting it from the bottom. That kind of worried They would get up river and shine him to get his location but each time the beam caught him, the big gator submerged. They were sitting still in the dark, waiting for their Ranew said. Then he looked over the bow of the boat and saw the gator staring back at him. The noise which he from the gator. spotlight his location, the gator slipped from view. There was a very bright glare of moonlight on the moonlight before we could turn the light on. Hed see After working the gator for six hours, the two went in to rest up for another night on the river. BACK FOR A SECOND TRY The second night both the hunters and the gator got bolder. The big gator responded to Ranews call, a noise he described as his effort to sound Davis got a better look at their prey and We knew not to stand up in the boat or turn on the light until we were absolutely The gator approached but each time, the gator stopped the boat. He actually picked the side of the boat down but held his position. Tommy, hes And then it got a little weird. He stayed under the boat and started whole body as he was touching the bottom of our boat. Bubbles were coming up on both descriptive term for what happens when big reptiles bellow and create subsonic vibrations causing the water to shoot up around them. Midnight was approaching and after putting in 12 to 13 hours working this big Ranew saw his chance and took a shot, landing an arrow in the side of the gators Hes pulling the boat up river like were another line in him but we needed some more Toby Garnett and Mike Johnson, who were also on the river that morning, to their side. A second line went in. Garnet held one; Davis had the other and they started pulling the gator in so Ranew could hit it with a bang half, Ranew said. Thank goodness we had A NEW RESPECT They got the gator in the boat and by 3:35 a.m., had him in the walk-in cooler at Big Bend. They broke a winch while moving the massive animal. Word spread quickly about their catch, off the road, Ranew said. There must have been 150 The experience has left Ranew with a respect for explaining that he will share the meat, the front of the gator will be mounted and the remaining hide will be used. And he cant wait to do it again. ------According to FWC, the Florida state record for length is a 14 foot 3-1/2 inch male alligator from Lake Washington in Brevard County.

Xavier Darcus Parks, 18, and Keldrick Wilson, 17, who live in the Sawdust Community, are each charged with one count of armed burglary, one count of burglary and two counts of grand theft, according to Major Donnie Branch of He confirmed Tuesday that Wilson, who is a minor but has been charged as an adult, was released on $50,000 bond Monday. Additional charges are expected against the two in Jackson County as well as surrounding counties, Branch said. Parks and Wilsons arrest was a combination of luck and hard work, according to Capt. Michael Bryant of We had been working on it for two weeks and started concentrating on the vehicle, he said. We created our own luck by being there, working and beating the bushes. For the two young suspects, it was a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time last week when they stopped at a Chattahoochee convenience discuss the investigation. Bryant and Investigator Todd Wheetley of the Liberty County Sheriffs Office pulled up alongside a second unmarked vehicle with Investigator Mark Mallory of the Calhoun County Sheriffs Office and Jackson County Investigator Jason McAlpin around 10:30 a.m. Feb. 15. They parked drivers window-to-drivers window as they discussed the case. Gadsden County Investigator Kevin Godwin pulled up nearby, walked over and stood between the vehicles as the men talked. When a car pulled up at the front door of the BP on Hwy. 90, someone in the group commented, Theres our suspect vehicle there. Bryant said they didnt everyone looked at the dark green fourdoor Honda that matched reports of the car seen near homes that were robbed. What caught our eye was that he pulled up at an angle, right to the front door, said Bryant. The driver kicked his door open and when he stepped outside, they realized he matched the description given the previous day by Lamar Holland in Bristol. He was also wearing the same white pullover Holland had told them about. Branch said the car was registered to one of the suspects aunts. A news release from the Liberty arrest: as they approached the vehicle. The driver tried to pull out but was blocked by Sneads Police Chief Burt McAlpin. As the men made contact with suspects Parks and Wilson, they noticed two handguns at the feet of the passenger. A was on the console. Shoe soles worn by both suspects were examined at the scene and found to match impressions taken at the crime scenes. Treads from the cars mismatched tires matched up with photos of tire tracks at homes in several counties where breakins were reported. Two break-ins had taken place in Jackson County earlier that morning, according to Branch, who said a gun taken from one of those burglaries that morning.

Thats what was said when injured and abandoned animals were found in this part of the Florida Panhandle for years and thats how many of us Baby birds who had taken a tumble out of their nest, orphaned fawns, a descented skunk that had once been someones pet and displaced otters got a second chance when they were brought to her. There were owls, hawks, eagles, wolves, coyotes, a bobcat and even vultures. Her goal was always to help them Many of those who couldnt return to the woods often became part of Knights educational program, visiting schools, malls and public events. Others with injuries that would limit their chances for survival stayed on at the Big Bend Wildlife Sanctuary she founded in 1988, where a rotating group of volunteers took turns under her tutelage learning to work with wildlife. Last week, after dealing with several problems including her recent hospitalization for pneumonia, the family learned she had an aggressive form of cancer. Betsy died Feb. 17. The animals have lost a friend but Betsy left behind a legacy: The volunteers she taught to care for injured animals and the students who learned to appreciate wildlife through their contact with her.See BETSY KNIGHT continued on page 3 SAFE!Liberty Co.
