Though Labor Day is often a time to celebrate at a backyard barbecue with family and friends, to summer. But Labor Day is more than just barbecues and a sendoff for summer. Labor Day actually dates back to the 19th century, though its origins are still open for debate. According to the Unit ed States Department of Labor, recent research supports the contention that Labor Day was the brainchild of machinist Matthew Maguire, who supposedly devised the idea in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. But some still feel it was Peter J. McGuire, a cofounder of the American Federation of La bor and general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, who founded the holiday. Though the debate as to who founded Labor tem ber 5, 1882, in New York. This was in accordance with plans from Maguire's Central Labor Union, which would go on to encourage other states and Labor Day, and celebrate it accordingly just as it was being celebrated in New York. As labor unions grew, more and more cities started celebrating Labor Day, which McGuire suggested should be a day to honor those "who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold." As the popularity of Labor Day grew, govern mental recognition was not far behind. By 1885, municipal ordinances recognizing Labor Day had been passed, and from those eventually sprouted a movement to inspire state legislation. Though tember as Labor Day. New York, along with Col orado, Massachusetts and New Jersey, followed suit that same year. As the 1880s drew to a close, Connecticut, Nebraska and Pennsylvania were recognizing Labor Day, and by 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday to honor workers. But it wasn't until June 28, 1894 that Congress Monday in September of each year a legal holi day. This applied to all states as well as the Dis trict of Columbia. Though Labor Day is now a time to gather with family and friends and possibly enjoy some time at the beach or at a barbecue, it's important and the history of this special day in September.

The Finch family met the Jonas Brothers before their Aug. 15 con cert in San Diego. Ashley and her sister, Amber, are shown at cen ter with the Jonas Brothers. Dad Nick is at far left; at far right is their mother, Angela. by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor A recommendation from her neuro-oncologist that the Make-A-Wish Founda tion do something special for Ashley Finch resulted in the trip of a lifetime for the 14-year-old Bristol girl.

Their goal is to enrich the human experi ence with hope, strength and joy. She and her family were treated to a trip to San Di ego, CA, where they en joyed a concert by Ashleys favorite group, The Jonas Brothers. She got to meet the three young per formers during a sound check before the show and stayed to enjoy the concert from the front row with her family.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 28, 2013 Political parties, particularly the Republican Party, have a generational gap with America's youth. By and large, America's young people pay little, if any, atten tion to the pronouncements of politicians and political pundits. Three of our granddaughters, ages 18, 19 and 22, are in college, one in a graduate program. Because of a broken home, my wife and I helped raise the 19-year-old. She was al ways a good source for what high school kids think, feel, believe and do. No matter how timid and de mure a teenager may appear when in the presence of Mom and Dad, they all have "street smarts." Yes, they know all the curse words and invent a few of their own. Nothing new, it's always been like that. Today's teens and college youths are largely color blind. Friends are friends without regard to their color or race. The ex ception is largely the result of racism learned from parents. They know who among them is homeless. They drinking and drugs. They know who gets free meals at school because parents don't have money to pay for lunches. They know who the "backpack" kids are. Kids that won't have anything to eat over the weekend can pick up a backpack with food without drawing attention to their plight because all kids carry a backpack. They know who eats at the 34 school sites that offer free food during the summer months. But it's OK. They aren't judgmental about their friends and classmates. The food for the Backpack Program comes from volunteers. My wife and I contribute to that program, and the 19-year-old worked in that program during compassion for those less fortunate than her. For the the 19-year-old while her mother was at work. We had "school" every day at our house. When she was old enough, I took her to pre-K and Kindergarten. She went through 12 years of school with the same group of kids who eventually became teenagers and then young adults. Almost all of her group were, and still are, from broken homes, including her. So, be mother, attended every school event for all 12 years plus pre-K and Kindergarten events. Through all this, what is now about 15 years, this young woman and I have had many conversations. I used these conversations not to talk but to listen to what she had to say, which was plenty. I was never judgmental. If she wanted advice, I would tell her how I would handle the situation. If I had botched some event in my life, I would admit to it and say that is how not to handle a situation. The point of this soliloquy about growing up in America is to point out that politicians don't get it. They think that children are going to follow in the footsteps of their parents. To some extent, the answer is yes, but convincing a young adult that people who are on food stamps are leeches on society, as is the preaching of conservatives, particularly Tea Partiers, falls on deaf ears when that young adult was a "back pack" kid in high school, or knew others who took that backpack home on Friday in order to be able to eat on Saturday and Sunday. Republicans are waging a war on America's poor. The Republican controlled House, read that as Tea Party controlled House, refused to fund the food stamps program as part of the Farm Bill. Instead, the House Republicans state that they will fund the food stamp program in their own way. Read that as, they will gut the program. Fortunately, their proposal will never get through the Senate. Politicians fail to recognize that America's public schools are per fect examples of America's "melt ing pot." The groups of kids, teen agers, young adults that wend their high school are a mix of many eth nic backgrounds. A class of high school seniors is the perfect exam ple of America's diversity. A senior class in Texas may have more Hispanics and a senior class in Harlem may have more Afro Americans, a se nior class in Montana may have an American Indian as president of the class, but without fail, most high school graduating classes are a mix of "Americans." In spite of the obvious mix of black, brown, yellow, tan and white faces that comprise the American mon tage, the Republican Party singles out minorities for "special attention." Black people can vote, but only if they can meet "Republican muster." The North Carolina Republican effort to suppress voting rights of minorities is "modern day Jim Crow law." Fortunately, the judicial system recognizes the blatant effort to suppress the voting rights of minori ties and has put a hold on this law for the interim. There are millions of Hispanics in the U.S. who came here illegally. Millions of them have established lives here, established families, have children born here and now the question is what to do about all the millions of "illegals" in the U.S. Punish those sinners must lurk in the minds of Re rapped and waiting about a kazillion years, then the illegal can achieve some form of limited citizenship. It's all for naught. The average illegal will die before he or she can jump through all the Republican hoops. We, particularly Republicans and more particularly Tea Partiers, are so sanctimonious about this being "our America." How many of us have proof that our ancestors weren't illegals? I don't. My ancestors al legedly came to the Carolinas in the early 1700s or 1800s, but no one is sure. But, I'll bet my truck that hundreds of others arriving from Europe. They hit the docks, had a beer and beat feet into the hinterlands. So, when the sanctimonious claim their heritage to the colonial elite, I say.prove it. It is a shame to watch the Republican Party morph into the party of old white men with swollen pros tates, squinty eyes and drawers too tight, hating any and everything not made in their image. What America needs is another President Ronald Reagan, President George H. W. Bush, Senator Bob Dole, Senator Barry Goldwater, Representative Jack Kemp and Senator Everett Dirksen. These men represented the Grand Old Party at its best, but now the Grand Old Party is populated with mental midgets.

DEMPSEY BARRON ROAD, BRISTOL (OFF HWY. 12 N) Phone (850) 643-5995 Ever wonder what you would do if you met a bear in the woods? I dont. Not anymore. I found out once on a backpacking trip in Idahos Sawtooth Moun tains. It wasnt something I really wanted to know, but now that I do, I feel the need to share the lesson with others. The adventure began when my friend Lee sug gested that we take a trip to mark his 40th birthday. I always assumed either the Marine Patrol or the grim reaper would take both of us before age 30, so living free and keeping a pulse ebrating. Especially in a place Id always wanted to see in person. Lee and our friend Steve had made several trips out west before, but all my backpacking had been east of the Mississippi. I was look ing forward to the higher eleva tions, beautiful vistas and a chance ters of the northern Rockies. tions, though, I started wonder ing what we would do if we met a grizzly bear. Should we take a no idea, but I felt like we needed a plan. I posed the question in a chain of emails among the four of us who man that he is, responded with a painfully truthful non-answer. Bears will usually run from four grown men, he said. If you want something to worry about, just remember that were out-ofshape old guys with years of ba con fat running through our veins. Were about to tackle a fairly tough hike at high elevation. At this point, a massive coronary is a lot more likely than a bear attack. He was right, of course. There was also the fact that mouth-toout of the question. If CPR was needed, it was most likely going to be performed with the heel of a boot (provided somebody had enough energy). Still, I couldnt help but think about that hypothet ical bear. What I came up with was a es cape strategy based on the knowl edge that Steve and Lee each had more knee surgeries than Joe Na math. Mine was the classic I-justhave-to-outrun-you theory. Later, I learned their plan hinged on my into cardiac arrest. In short, a bear attack would boil down to a battle of the body systems: My cardio vs. their skeletal winner take all. I liked my odds in that scenario. As it turned out, however, I was all nally came. * On the third day in, we reached Arrowhead Lake, an ice-blue diamond in a green valley below snow-capped peaks. The sight took my breath away. Or maybe the el evation did. Regardless, it was an is, Im told). So, while the other three were doing trivial stuff like pitching the ing supper, I volunteered to go As I worked my way around the lake, I was hypnotized by the music of nature playing to the rhythm of my casts. Birds sang. Fish jumped. And a platoon of chipmunks was at my back, frantically doing whatev er chipmunks do. (Munking chips? Chipping munks?) When I was as far away from the campsite as possible, I noticed the birds had stopped their singing and the chipmunks had stopped their chipmunkery. I was feeling a little ill at ease, but I shrugged it off because who knows, maybe they clock out at four or something. A couple of minutes later though, I got the distinct and eerie feeling something was watch ing me from behind. So I turned around slowly ing directly into the glassy eyes of death itself. What I remember most vividly is the late afternoon sun glistening on its brown fur and its menacing snout only a few feet in front of me. It was so close, I could all but feel its hot breath in my face. My very soul was frozen as I stared at its . slender legs . with hooves instead of claws. Also, the ears of death were a bit been in my nightmares. And it was chewing on a branch in a decidedly non-death-like way. I should probably point out here that I had never seen a mule deer in person before, much less one standing on small rise less than 10 feet away. In my defense, if you brought that damn thing to Florida, I guarantee that somebody would put a saddle on it. A couple of seconds later, the grizzly deer trotted away. And nally breathed again. * It occurred to me that I now met an actual bear in the woods die painfully, paralyzed by fear as my body got eaten piece by piece. In fact, if I ever meet a grizzly face to face, Im pretty sure my last hike will be on the trail through his digestive tract. If that happens, my only wish is that age-old question: Does a bear %$ in the woods? The Sawtooth Grizzly Breakdown Calhoun County native Jim McClellan grew of his family has enjoyed.

LEFT: Ben Beckwith (#10) heads for the goal as a Chipley player dives into his path. BELOW: Jarrod Beck with (#4) pursues a Chipley opponent. DANIEL WILLIAMS PHOTOS by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer The seventh Liberty County fumble of the night was the most costly as a Chipley defender scooped up the rain-soaked ball and ran 41 yards for a game winning touchdown with less than 30 seconds remaining in the game. The Bulldogs lost their preseason contest at Chipley 22-16. Jordan Chaney ran for a touchdown and then caught a two-point conversion pass from LCHS quarterback Micah McCaskill. Libertys defense found themselves with their backs dogs stopped the Tigers inside the 20 several times, to tie the game at 8. Chipley took the lead in the third quarter after another Bulldog fumble once again gave the Tigers LCHS Head Coach Grant Grantham was unhappy with the fumbles, but said the mistakes did give his seven possessions and the other team only gets two offensive touchdowns, your defense was probably playing really well, Grantham said. We had a lot of backups in there playing defense and they may not be backups any longer as well as they played. It was the and there were some people that really impressed us . and there are some that really need to step up. McCaskill tied the game by tossing a two-point conversion pass to freshman J.J. House. The twopointer came after McCaskill scored a touchdown on a quarterback sneak from just outside the one yard line with just over a minute and a half left to play in the game. Grant said the team came back and played like Bulldog teams of old, We didnt put our heads down when we got behind and that was a good thing because you never know how your younger players are going to react. Sometimes our sophomores played like sopho mores and for us to be good, they have got to play like juniors and seniors. I know they can because theyve had a lot of playing time and theyve worked really hard since last season ended. I just have to hope they realize they can step up and then make it happen. The Bulldogs stopped Chipley on their last posses sion of the game, but then the Bulldog fumble gave the Tigers the win. Liberty will host Maclay in Bristol at 7:30 p.m.(ET) Grantham said Maclay likes to spread the ball out, but they are a lot more physical than most spread teams the Bulldogs have faced. Grantham said, They are a well-coached team and a really good team that should challenge our defense. If we dont step up and play solid it could be a long night. The Liberty County Junior Varsity squad will also in an Aug. 29 game that starts at 7 p.m. (ET). ABOVE: Lando Brown (#32) makes the grab. LEFT: Liberty County fans show their support.
