BYA opened in 2000 to work with male juvenile offenders from 14 to 18 years of age, providing boys a place to live and continue their education during their rehabilitation. At present, it serves 58 youth, with a limit of 60 residents. When the Revell Road facility closes its doors in January, it will also end 68 jobs. BYA has 57 full time employees, eight part-time workers and three who worked with the vocational services program. Five staff members work with the other posts within the school system. "The loss of jobs between the two companies (BYA and Cadence Bank branch) is estimated to be around 75," according to Liberty County Chamber of Commerce President Michael Wright, referring to last week's announcement that the Bristol branch of Cadence Bank is closing down. "That may not be a big deal for a lot of places, but it is for us because it represents about one percent of our total population and nearly two percent of our total workforce." Wright also said the loss of taxes paid by those next year," he said. Mitch Willis, who owns Strickland's Hardware, is quick to point out that small businesses like his will feel the impact. "When you've got that many employees losing their jobs, that means less money will be spent in the county," according to Willis. "Even BYA employees who work here but live elsewhere help the economy by eating at our restaurants and shopping at our stores." Chipola Regional Workforce Board Member Johnny Eubanks has put in a request for funding to help dislocated workers from the youth academy. Eubanks said chamber members are already exploring options, including the idea of using the site that BYA will vacate as a regional detention center to accommodate overcrowded jails in surrounding areas. The loss of the youth academy will also mean $12,000 a year less coming into the City of Bristol. That's the approximate amount the facility pays each year for water, sewage and garbage services, according to City Clerk Robin Hatcher. DJJ Communications Director Meghan Speakes Collins credited the state's success in serving delinquent youth through prevention and diversion programs as the reason for closing. She also indicated that DJJ and the company running BYA Keystone Educational Youth new contract. "When we previously attempted to procure a new contract for this program, we did not get a response that we believed was adequate in terms of the services that we were looking for," Collins said, stating they were asking for "better quality services at a price that is fair to Florida taxpayers." She concluded: "Therefore, it made business sense to us to put our procurement efforts where the responses were better aligned with the services that we need, the physical beds that we need, and at an appropriate price. Subsequently, the contract for Bristol will end in January, as scheduled." Bristol Youth Academy, which employees 68 people, is closing in January. The Bris tol branch of Cadence Bank will shut down in November. JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTOS Cadence Bank to end service at Bristol branch by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor The Bristol branch of Cadence Bank will be closing its doors Nov. 18. bank representative Anna Harris urged current customers to continue their business with the bank's main away." Harris also asked customers to consider other means of banking with Cadence, including online and mobile banking "The closure results from a continuous evaluation of the performance of our branch network and the evolution of local economies," according to Executive Vice-President in Retail Banking with Cadence. opportunities that optimize our branch network, and unfortunately this may mean closing branches," she said. "We are investing heavily in online banking technologies to meet the increasing demand for these services, and we invite our clients to explore and use these options." Cadence also has a branch in Altha, which does not appear to be slated for a shutdown at this time, according to Danielle Kernell, Vice-President for Marketing Communications with Cadence. employees at the Bristol branch "transition either within Cadence or to other positions outside the bank." Only one employee at the branch was left without a job, according to the company. Another resigned to seek employment elsewhere. Cadence Bank began operations shut down Superior Bank. Cadence bought Superior Bank in April 2011. According to its website, Cadence Bank has more than $5.7 billion in assets with more than 100 locations in six states, including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.

WITH A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Write: The Calhoun-Liberty Journal P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321 To the editor, It is a really good move on Governor Scott's part to legally confront the Corps of Engineers (COE) on the withholding of water for the Apalachicola River in relation to oysters in the bay. My question is, why has the State of Florida allowed the COE to mutilate the entire river system for the past 70 years? With the placement of 140 dredge spoil sites with bends having been cut from the river, snagging, dynamiting, straightening, and dredging, the result ing effects to the system has been severe. Fish have declined; endangered and endemic land and aquatic species have been impacted and waterways that took dredged spoil. A narrow, deep river is now a shallow, almost non-existent. The enablers have been many. The Department of Environmental Protection issued the permits to the COE, resource agencies gave their approval and leaders of the State ignored the devastation. Thank you to Senator Bill Nelson for acknowledging the entire environment at the meeting in Apalachicola on Aug. 13.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 21, 2013 COMMENTARY Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., was given two and a half years in prison for, in the words of the U.S. federal judge who sentenced him, using his campaign treasury as a personal piggy bank. I have only met Jesse Jackson Jr. a couple of times. But I liked him and found him, unlike more than a few of his congres sional colleagues, actu ally interested in events and issues that did not directly involve him. I knew Jesse Jr. had a real problem when I learned that he had the Rolex gene, however. The Rolex gene is basically, but not exclusively, a male disorder that clouds mens minds into believing that if they pay several thousand dollars for a big wrist watch, other people will recognize them as successful and important. Jackson raided his campaign fund of $43,000 to buy an especially pricey Rolex. This gene is bipartisan. Virginias Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell, after admitting that he had embar rassed his state, has returned all the tangible gifts an and his family -including $25,000 in wedding expenses to two of the governors daughters, a $15,000 shop ping trip for Mrs. McDonnell at New Yorks Bergdorf Goodman and, for the Gov himself, a $6,500 Rolex wristwatch. It could be just a crazy coincidence that Bernie Madoff, the architect and engineer of his own $65 mil lion Ponzi scheme, had in his townhouse, count em, 17 Rolodexes, including the Oyster chronograph, which sold for only $63,500. This is obviously not about know ing the correct time, which is available everywhere from your cellphone to your laptop to the nearest dashboard wife or a winter tan, the purpose of the wrist jewelry is to make some statement about your status, success or self-esteem. Just how shallow and have to be in order to be impressed -not by another persons integrity, decency or thoughtfulness, but instead by his timepiece? I always enjoyed Woody Allens line: Im very proud of my gold pocket watch. My grandfather, on his death bed, sold me this watch. My own wrist is a dead giveaway: a stainless steel semi-luminous numbers and a second hand, and which is now, frankly, overpriced at $129. In fairness, two men whom I genuinely admire for their generosity of spirit and their compassion, both of whom I was fortunate enough to meet and to inter view, the late actor-philanthropist Paul Newman and the admirable Dalai Lama, both wore Rolexes. But neither man, unlike your neighborhood private equity buccaneer or least favorite in-law, ever looked to his jewelry box for his identity. Ill proudly put the bumper sticker on my car of the a study by the National Institutes of Health to isolate -and to eliminate -the Rolex gene in the American male. Believe me, while it might temporarily incon venience the Swiss economy, it would be an absolute boon to the American way of life. AMERICAN COLOR by Mark Shields Pundit Mark Shields has been on the After years of managing campaigns from the courthouse to the White House, he is now one of the most widely recognized commentators The bipartisan Rolex Gene We had President Obama on the show last night. It was a huge honor, but all the security rity was checking IDs, the Secret Service was searching cars, Donald Trump was out front Mayor Filner of San Diego has had 14 women come forward alleging that he sexually harassed them. In San Diego, Hooters restaurants are re fusing to serve Filner because they say hes dis theres a time and a place to be disrespect to women and thats at a Hooters. Im not one of those ex-smokers who says, Ill never smoke again. I would start smoking again in a heartbeat. The only thing stopping me is the painful early death. Last week, a woman in Nevada gave birth to a healthy baby boy in the bathroom of a Subway restaurant. Afterwards, the manager said, Uh, you still have to buy something. Rest rooms are for customers only. We have music tonight from Big Sean. You know, before you do rap, they make you decide if youre big or little. Why is it that rappers are always big or little? Any of them ever come in medium? U.S. embassies are closed all around the Middle East this week due to a terrorist threat. What happened was the U.S. intercepted a con ference call of 20 al-Qaida operatives. Twenty on one conference call! Who is their carrier? I go under a bridge and my cellphone drops the call, but they can get 20 people in one call from a cave? The big trend these days is electronic ciga rettes. They are not as bad for you. I suppose theyre safer than regular cigarettes, but a lot of things are safer than cigarettes. Thats like say ing your movie made more money than The Lone Ranger or like saying you fathered fewer During a fundraiser last night, Mitt Romney told Republicans that they need to pick a can didate for 2016 who can actually win. And Re publicans said, Yeah, I wish you told us that last year. But hey, thanks a lot. have come forward to accuse San Diego Mayor Bob Filner of sexual misconduct. That brings the en. According to a new report, Tulsa, Oklahoma, has the lowest rent in the country. Yeah, nice try Tulsa, but were still not moving there. I fancy smoking a pipe. Actually, I would like around solving crimes. We had quite a night last night. Oprah Winfrey was here. Are you familiar with her work? Oprah swooped down from heaven last night, and there was a rainbow over the theater. Have you ever seen a rainbow at night? The Republican National Committee now says if NBC and CNN dont pull plans for a Hill ary Clinton miniseries and movie, they wont hold any Republican debates on those networks. That works for me! Now if we could just get the Democrats to pull their debates, we wouldnt have to watch any of that crap. Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 21, 2013 Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission (FWC) biolo gists are asking the public to report sightings of three rare snake species: Florida pine snake, southern hognose snake and short-tailed snake. Citi zens can help with research on these species by reporting sightings online. Reports from the public will aid us in determining where these snakes live and their status, said Kevin Enge, FWC research biologist. All of these snake species have been petitioned for federal listing. The three species are found in dry, upland habitats and spend most of their time underground. They are only occasionally seen moving along the surface or crossing a road. For each report, the citizen is asked to provide the location where they saw the snake and the month and year the observation occurred. Researchers are also requesting citizens to submit photos of FWC asks public to report sightings of rare snakes Reports can include live or dead animals. Although these species are nonvenomous, citi zens should avoid handling or disturbing them. For more information about living with snakes and to submit sightings to the FWC, visit MyFWC.com/ Conservation, select How You Can Conserve, and choose Snakes under Living with Wildlife.

Florida east coast anglers can help FWC get red snapper data Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and National Oceanic and At mospheric Administra tion (NOAA) researchers are asking anglers to help them gather infor mation about the im portant Atlan tic red snapper red snapper season is open Aug. 23 through Aug. 25 (a Friday through Sunday) in south Atlantic federal waters. FWC researchers and volunteers will be out along Floridas east coast during each day of the season, asking recre red snapper trips and their catch. Researchers will also collect biological samples of harvested mine the age of each red snapper. Biologists sampled more than 2,000 red snapper during the fed eral opening in 2012 as a result of these efforts. Anglers survey re sponses and biological samples will give re searchers valuable data about the red snapper fishery. Fisheries sci entists could use this information in future population assessments. While the federal opening will have no size limit and a bag limit day, in Florida state wa ters there is a 20-inch to tal length minimum size limit, in addition to a bag limit of two fish per person, per day. Vessels with red snapper smaller than the states minimum size limit must travel through state waters without stop gear stowed. When anglers catch a tagged red snapper, FWC researchers ask that they report it to the Angler Tag Return Ho tline: (800) 367-4461. When calling the hotline, anglers should indicate the species, tag number, date and time of cap length, type of bait used kept or released. If the is asked to leave the tag in place to help with future data collection. For more information about red snapper sampling efforts, visit MyFWC.com/ Research.

Very soon, I realized that their small minds decision within the time frame set by my patience usually just blurt out, Three McNugget meals and Sprites. Then Id drive around, with much moaning and gnashing of teeth coming from the back seat. Just recently, I noticed that I do a version of that same thing to myself almost every time I go spots in Northwest Florida. Unless youre after rainbow trout, salmon or cod, were within driv ing distance of any species you could want. So but it seems like my rudder is always stuck on the same course. brother Steve and I have said we need to try. There are places in the river, on the sound and along the coast. There are places in Calhoun County on the Apalachicola and Chipola rivers that we But it doesnt matter because when I head out this weekend, I know Ill end up in one places I always go.

Fishing spots that come with a built-in clean ing bench always rate pretty highly with me. You know those people who dont ever catch anything but tell you its okay because they just enjoy being out there? Well, I wasnt raised by or around any of those people. To my folks, success just failure. (And failure, as we all know, tastes like Vienna sausages.) So when I leave the house, Im playing the odds. I go where I know I stand a good chance of long as theyre biting. When they stop, Ill reluc tantly move on and try someplace new. I guess its good to have lots of choices.

JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South The trouble with choices Following months of meetings and evaluations of public preferences, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con servation Commission (FWC) has formulated possible changes to deer hunting in northwest Florida for the 2014-15 hunting season. The changes are intended to improve hunter satisfaction. Under the proposed changes in Florida Zone D, in northwest Florida, the FWC is looking at antler-point regulations in Deer Management Unit (DMU) D-1 that would require that antlered deer have at least one antler with two or more antler points on one side to be eligible for harvest. DMU D-1 is south of Interstate 10. In DMU D-2, which is north of Interstate 10, antlered deer would need at least one antler with three or more points on one side to be eligible for harvest. Hunters under the age of 16 would be exempt from the proposed antler-point regulations on private lands and on some wildlife management areas. Zone D stretches from Tallahassee west to the Florida-Alabama state line. The purpose of the antler-point regulations, both in DMU D-1 and DMU D-2, is to protect the majority of 1.5-year-old bucks from harvest while allowing the harvest of 2.5-year-old and older bucks, said James Kelly, Assistant Deer Management Program Coor dinator. During our outreach efforts, we heard a lot of support for increasing the number of bucks in the population, improving buck-to-doe ratios and increas ing the size of bucks harvested. Other changes under consideration are to shift the antlerless deer season on private lands in DMU D-1 from the current seven consecutive days to four week end days during the general gun season. In DMU D-2, antlerless deer days would increase to eight weekend days. Three weekends would occur during general gun season, and one weekend would occur during the muzzleloading gun season. The proposed change in antlerless deer days in DMU or increasing the deer population while also increasing gun season, Kelly said. Deer-herd density and pro ductivity is higher in DMU D-2, which is why we are recommending more antlerless deer days for this unit. Kelly said the regulation proposals are based on detailed input from hunters, landowners, farmers and others during a series of public meetings, public webi nars, surveys and technical assistance group meetings. The proposed changes are recommendations by FWC staff and have not yet been presented to Com missioners for consideration and action. More detailed information and the opportunity to provide feedback on both proposals can be made at MyFWC.com/Deer. Panther sightings reported throughout Florida The public has reported hundreds of sightings of Florida panthers to the Florida Fish and Wild life Conservation Com mission (FWC) website launched a year ago, where people can record when and where they saw a panther or its tracks. As of August 2013, the public had submitted 790 sightings to MyFWC.com/Pan therSightings. Only 12 percent of the reports included a photograph and could be evaluated by Commission biologists. Of those with photos, the majority were bobcats, foxes, coyotes, dogs, house cats and even a monkey. Most often the reported animal or tracks belonged to a bobcat, when it was not Florida, the well-documented breeding range for panthers in the state. There south central Florida. The publics willingness to share what they have seen or collected on game cameras is incredibly helpful and shows us where panthers presumably are roaming in Florida, said Darrell Land, who heads the FWCs panther team. We thank everyone using the Report Florida Panther Sightings website and encourage others to participate in this citizen-science venture. As the population of this endangered species grows, the FWC expects more Florida pan thers to be seen in areas of the state where they have not lived for decades, Land said. To properly plan and manage for the expansion of the panthers range in Florida, information about where the panthers are is vital. The FWC has a new E-Z guide to identify panther tracks available at www.FloridaPantherNet.org. The Florida panther population is estimated to be 100 to 160 adults include panther kittens. As recently as the 1970s, the Florida panther was close to disappearing, with as few as 20 animals in the wild.

MENUS SPONSORED BY: Tigers prep for upcoming season with Jamboree in Blountstown by Michael DeVuyst, The Blountstown Football Tigers will say goodbye to summer workouts and begin the preseason with a jamboree this Friday night Aug. 23 in Blountstown vs. St. Joe and Vernon. Starting at 6:30 p.m. (CT) Blountstown will play St. Joe followed by St. Joe vs. Vernon, then Blountstown vs. Vernon. Each game will be for a half. The new season will bring a change to the district in which Blountstown competes. Blountstown has moved to Class A District 3 with Bozeman, Chipley, South Walton and Holmes County. Gone are district rivalries with Franklin County, Liberty County, St. Joe and West Gadsden but Franklin County and Liberty County will remain on the schedule. The Tigers went 7-5 last year before falling in round 2 in the state playoffs. When asked about the upcom ing season Coach Greg Jordan could hardly contain his enthusiasm, We dont have many seniors (10) but they are all great leaders, coachable, hardworking and are hungry for success. Coach Jordan feels the strength of the team this year will be the offensive line, We have 4 of 5 linemen re turning along with the tight end. We will average close to 250 lbs. across the front and hopefully that means we can push some people around and run the ball well. Across the front Blountstown will start Jay Williams (270), C.J. Hiers (205), Dewayne Laramore (210), Cole Taylor (290), Tommy Futch (310) and Tripp Taylor (215). 1,000 yard passer and 500 yard rusher Hunter Jordan along with 800 yard rusher JaVakiel Brigham. On defense, the Tigers will return 9 of 11 starters. Coach Jordan feels that if the injury bug can be avoided the defense has a chance to be special. The Tigers will have 8 players returning that were involved in 50 or more tackles last year including the top 5 defenders in J. Brigham, Corin Peterson, Dylan Lee, T. Taylor and D. Laramore. On special teams, the Tigers will return punter H. Jordan and place kicker Andrew Bennett. This BHS Tiger Tailgate Bench can be yours!

The Eye of the Tiger for our theme this year at BHS and why is our homecoming theme BHS Strong the legend of the Tiger? Why BHS Strong? To restate Dr. Debbie Williams in her message from the principal, Our BHS family has suffered through the illness of fellow faculty and staff members, as well as the death of current and former students. Through many trials and tribulations this past year, the fac ulty, staff, and students of BHS have remained hopeful, with promises of a brighter school year. We are and forever will be BHS Strong! Why the Eye of the Tiger? While we were listening to Bobbie Hammond, the 2013 Senior Class President, deliver her speech at graduation she ended it, Always remember that tough times dont last but tough people do and we here at SCHOOL Blountstown High School on high way 69 in Calhoun County, were made of tough stuff! We are and always will be THE EYE OF THE TIGER!!! This comment seemed very appropriate to compliment our theme of BHS Strong and TEAM BHS agreed! Why BHS Strong.the legend end is : a story coming down from the past; especially : one popularly regarded as historical although not c : a popular myth of recent origin d : a person or thing that inspires legends. With that said, we feel here at BHS that we have several people, stories, buildings, and memories that are legendary. We believe that the strength of the Tiger is legendary and we wanted to capitalize on this idea at homecom ing this year.
