Man found in back yard charged with voyeurism -----Altha man arrested on 2 counts sexual battery, 10 counts of molestation by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor A Bristol man died after falling approximately 50 feet from the platform of a bucket truck while trimming a tree Friday afternoon. Killed was 53-year-old Willie James Spears. Several people were watching as Spears worked on some high limbs in a tree next to a mobile home on Clay Street around 3 p.m. The arm of the bucket truck was extended to its full distance. "The limb he was sawing fell the wrong way, hit the bucket and broke the bucket," according to Liberty County Sheriff Buddy Money. Spears fell from the overturned bucket and landed on the right rear of the truck before he fell to the ground. Capt. Wes Harsey performed CPR at the scene until an ambulance crew arrived and rushed him to the emergency room at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital. Spears was pronounced dead at 3:58 p.m. (ET). His body was later taken to the Bay County Medical Examiner for autopsy. Just minutes before the accident, Spears had been on the phone with his wife, who works at the Liberty County Jail. After they ended their call, she went to attend to an inmate. Moments later, she heard the call on the police scanner about a man who had fallen from a bucket truck. Then her cell phone rang and she got the tragic news. A family friend remembers Spears as someone who couldn't say no when asked to help. The day of the fatal accident he had originally planned to assist a friend in Quincy put siding on his home. Instead, he stayed in Bristol to help a relative take down a tree. "He was just a jack of all trades," according to family friend Veldina Dawson. He worked with the Dept. of Transportation for over 30 years but also stayed busy doing odd jobs and carpentry work, she said. Spears and Dawson's husband, James "Milt" Dawson, raised horses together. She said he loved horses and was delighted with the birth of a foal on St. Patrick's Day, which they named "Lucky Charm." She said Spears came to their home daily to feed the horses. When he wasn't working or caring for the horses, he enjoyed stopping by the Express Lane in Bristol for a cup of coffee and to visit with the staff and customers. "He was just an awesome person," said Dawson. "He was a quiet man who always had a smile." Services are scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday at the First Baptist Church in Bristol. He is survived by his wife, Maple, and one son, Joshua Spears.

Kids have returned to school, foot ball is back on TV, and hunting season has been going on for a month now in south Florida. Most of our preseason scouting, and weve hung our tree stands along well-traveled deer trails next to a ma ture oak tree thatll soon begin dropping acorns, if were lucky. Finally, the time of year weve been waiting for is here! Hunting season still which is that part of the state south of State Road 3 on private lands. made up in part by the lies south of S.R. 50, west of U.S. 441 and the Kis simmee Waterway, north of S.R. 60 and east of the and crossbow seasons on start this year on Saturday, Oct. 19. The line that divides zones C and D has been modified slightly this year, so please make sure you know which zone youre hunting in. The line still begins at U.S. 27 at the (Gadsden County) Florida-Georgia state line and runs south on U.S. 27 until it meets S.R. 61 in Tallahassee. From there, it follows S.R. 61, running south until it hits U.S. 319. There, the line fol lows U.S. 319, continuing south to U.S. 98; it then runs east along U.S. 98. changed. The line used to turn south on Spring Creek Highway, but now it continues east along U.S. 98 until it gets to the Wakulla River, where the river becomes the line, heading south until it meets the St. Marks River and continues downriver until it meets the Gulf. If you hunt west of D, where archery and crossbow seasons begin Saturday, Oct. 26 on C, archery and crossbow seasons open on Saturday, Sept. 14. To hunt during archery season, youll need a Florida hunting license and an archery permit. During crossbow season, youll need a hunting license and crossbow permit. If youre a Florida resident, an annual hunt ing license will cost $17. Nonresidents have the choice of paying $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. permits cost just $5 each, and all deer hunters must have the $5 deer permit. ing one of Floridas many management area permit for $26.50. chure for the area you wish to hunt, because hunting season dates on many of the areas are often differ ent from what the zonal dates are.

During archery season and that part of crossbow season that is concurrent with archery, you can take deer of either sex, regard less of antler size (except archery ends, during the remaining portion of the crossbow season, only legal bucks (having at least one antler that is at least 5 inches long) may be taken. The daily bag can differ, so check the you hunt. You can hunt wild hogs on private lands yearround with no bag or size theres also no bag or size limits, and hogs are legal to take during most hunt ing seasons except spring bag and size limits do ap ply, so be sure to check the area to be certain.

You can take only one turkey per day, and theres a two-bird fall-season limit. Its against the law to hunt turkeys in Holmes County in the fall, and its illegal to shoot them while theyre on the roost, over bait, when youre within 100 yards of a gamefeeding station when bait is present or with the aid of recorded turkey calls.

Special-events license exemption for disabled vets, military personnel The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) on Thursday, Sept. 5, implemented a new exemption for disabled veterans, active and reserve duty military personnel, immediate family members of these veterans and military personnel and as sistants during special events designed for the enjoyment or rehabilitation of participating military personnel and disabled veterans. This effort to help disabled veterans and those serving in the military came about during the 2013 legislative ses sion, when the Commission requested and the Legislature and Governor ap proved the new license exemption. The Commission was directed to craft rules to implement the law. Our disabled veterans and military have given so much to us that we wanted to give something to them, by allowing events without having to buy a license and/or permit, Chairman Richard Corbett said. Event organizers apply for the permit to exempt their qualifying participants. To qualify for the exemption, special events must be designed to provide reha bilitation or enjoyment to participating disabled veterans or active or reserve duty military personnel in any branch Guard or Florida National Guard. Imme diate family members (parents, spouses and children) of participating disabled veterans and military personnel and one designated assistant for each disabled veteran are included in each events license and permit exemptions. Exemptions will last for the duration of the events. FWC regional directors, as the executive directors designee, will issue these permits. Established seasons, bag or slot limits, size restrictions and all other laws will still apply. Limited-entry activities wont be permitted under this exemption. We worked with stakeholders; mili tary, veterans and other state agencies and related organizations in drafting the exemption, said the FWCs Northeast Regional Director, Shannon Wright. Commissioners approved staffs recommendations for implementing the rule, so now staff will advertise the possible, as allowed by Florida Statutes, without further hearing.

SEPTEMBER 11, 2013 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 11 The cultural cost of Floridas Net Ban Former Gov. Buddy MacKay often in cluded in his speeches a reference to Mat thew 16:26: He used the quote to illustrate why Florida should protect its natural and cultural trea sures or risk losing the very things that make our state unique. By that measure, Florida hasnt lost its soul yet. Not all of it, anyway. You can in places like Spring village tucked away in Wakulla County on Floridas northern Gulf Coast. Named for the the saltwater marsh, the quiet little com munity is a window to the Florida our greatgrandparents knew. Youd be hard pressed rustic, real-Florida charm. But like so many old coastal settlements, the unique character of Spring Creek is fad ing and a way of life is disappearing with it. Today you wont see any mullet boats striking their nets around the oyster bars. Only a handful of crabbers are left and the was. Theres no doubt other issues played a role in the troubles, but locals will tell you in a hurry that it was the net ban that changed their world forever. For those who dont remember, there was a 1994 Florida ballot initiative to ban gill nets, the devices most commonly used to catch mullet. That referendum ignited a culture war, pitting the white-booted com ational anglers. Of course, the outcome was never really velopment interests, environmentalists and the media teamed up to paint the commercial massively outnumbered, couldnt muster an effective defense and the initiative passed by a wide margin. That it was a constitutional amendment also meant it was an ironclad prohibition with no room for negotiation or compromise. The problem is that it didnt end up being the seafood in dustry giants who paid the price. The heavy hitters could di versify or buy from elsewhere. Instead, the real losers were the small, family-run operations that re lied on mullet for a large chunk of their mea ger incomes. Some believe the ban was inevitable and that it was the best solution. After all, sport ple displaced are now running charters. Oth ers found higher paying jobs elsewhere. And its also a boon to local governments to have higher-value properties on their tax rolls. tempting to just enjoy my pastime and force myself to believe the ban was a good thing. But when I visit Spring Creek, I cant help but wonder if what we gained was as valu able as what were losing. Leo Lovel, a local restaurant owner and lifestyle thats goin out like a full moon tide.

Eighteen other states, includ ing Georgia and Alabama, also prohibit the importa tion of live cervids (deer, elk and moose). CWD is not known to affect people but is a conta gious neurological disease affecting cervids. It is al ways fatal, and there is no known cure or vaccine. So far, the disease has been discovered in 22 states, two Canadian provinces and in South Korea. To implement the decision immediately, the FWC also issued an executive order prohibiting importation of cervids effective today, Sept. 6, 2013. The order in The Commission also directed the executive direc tor to create a working group to include the industry to develop other measures to safeguard the state from CWD. If these other measures are determined to be gives the executive director authority to then allow importation. Since the beginning of May, the FWC has received much public comment on this and answered ques tions and concerns. During this process, those who have deer farms and hunting preserves hunters and conservationists provided suggestions for additional prevention measures to consider. The Commission used this important feedback to guide its decision making. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com mission (FWC) approved an Oct. 1-21 supplemental recreational red snapper season in Gulf state waters for 2013 and eliminated a Feb. 1 March 31 closure affecting several species of grouper in Gulf of Mexi co state waters and a Nov. 1 March 31 recreational season closure for vermilion snapper in Atlantic state waters. The elimination changes go into effect before the scheduled closures would have occurred. The sea son eliminations will also make state regulations con sistent with federal regulations. State waters are from shore to 9 nautical miles in the Gulf and from shore to 3 nautical miles in the Atlantic. Federal waters extend out from where state waters end to about 200 nautical miles. The Oct. 1-21 supplemental recreational red snap per season in Gulf state waters is for 2013 only. An October supplemental season has also been proposed 2013 regular season to determine whether or not to open the recreational red snapper season in Gulf fed eral waters. NOAA Fisheries Service is expected to make an announcement regarding the potential fed eral season sometime in the next few weeks. Grouper species affected by elimination of the Feb. 1 March 31 Gulf closure include black, red, red Grouper species in state waters off Monroe County are managed by Atlantic state regulations and, there fore, are not affected by this change. In federal waters, the Feb. 1 March 31 closure was recently removed in waters shoreward of 20 fath oms or about 120 feet deep. The Feb. 1 March 31 closure was adopted as an effort to rebuild gag grouper populations during the spawning season. Today, gag grouper is managed separately from other Gulf groupers with its own har vest season, which is open July 1 through Dec. 3 in most state and all federal waters. OUTDOORS

Alerted by headlights outside her residence, the woman said that she looked out and noticed a truck parked nearby and then saw a man walking toward her home. When Liberty County Sheriffs Deputy Josh Shepard responded to her call Sept. 4 about a suspicious person in her back yard, he found William McDaniel Jr., 33, walking in the woods behind the womans home on Main Street in Bristol. When he saw the deputy, McDaniel began walking quickly to the end of the road toward his truck. McDaniel stopped when the deputy called out to him. When asked what he was doing in the area, McDaniel replied that his dog had jumped out of his truck and he was looking for him. When asked what kind of dog he had, McDaniel had to stop and think about it, according to the deputys re port. When asked for the dogs name, McDaniel again took a long pause before responding, Bozo. The deputy suggested McDan iel call out for his dog as he went to speak with the complainant. The woman said she had seen Mc Daniel drive by her house several times. She said a neighbor had also noticed him in the area several times and was concerned enough to take down his tag number. She said she did not know McDaniel. About 30 minutes later, the deputy returned to speak with McDaniel, who had continued calling for a dog without success. The deputy noted that McDaniel stated, I was not looking in her window. McDaniel did not say anything else about his missing dog after the trespassing warning was issued. A warrant was later issued for McDaniel and he was taken into custody Sept. 6. WILLIAM MCDANIEL Woman charged with domestic battery for hitting brother in face A day of drinking ended with an alterca tion that put one wom an in jail after a fam ily dispute on Saturday, according to a report from the Liberty County Christie Hemanes was charged with do mestic battery after walking up to her broth er and hitting him in the face, according to a news release from then responded by striking her in the nose. The brother and another man left the scene. Others there kept Hemanes at the Bur lington Road residence in Hosford until a deputy ar rived. The deputy determined she was the primary ag gressor in the altercation and took her into custody. No one involved in the altercation wanted to press charges and all re fused to give statements. The deputy noted that all partici pants were intoxicated and had been drinking for several hours. Hemanes was later released on her own recognizance. CHRISTY HEMANES SPEAK UP! WITH A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Write: The Calhoun-Liberty Journal P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321 To the editor, My elderly mother recently had an accident at her house. She was attempting to load her dog. They are used to her cranking the car and them loading up. On Tuesday, Sept. 3, she thought she had the car in park, she reached for her 60 pound dog and fell halfway out of her car. She became pinned on the ground by the car door and the force of the car moving in reverse. She held on and screamed for help. Thank God for two young men who heard her and came to help rescue her. We dont know who they are, just that God sent her two angels. Im so thankful that there are still people that will go out of their way to save someone. We need more heros like them. Thank you, Suzanne Clark, Bristol On Sept. 6 investigators from the Calhoun of Altha, for two counts of sexual battery on a child under the age of twelve and ten counts of lewd and lascivious molestation on a child under the age of twelve.

Chipola College ranks 14th best in nation in community colleges TALLAHASSEE Washington Monthly ranked Chipola College number 14 among national community colleges in its ninth annual college rankings survey. Four other Florida College System (FCS) institutions made the list: North Florida Community College, Mi ami Dade College, Valencia College and South Florida State College. On behalf of the faculty and staff of Chipola Col lege, we are pleased to be recognized for offering quality instruction, said Chipola President Dr. Gene Prough. I am very proud of our faculty and support personnel who provide a quality learning environment for our students." This honor recognizes the Florida College Systems commitment to both access and high-quality education, said FCS Chancellor Randy Hanna. I commend our colleges for their ongoing efforts to serve the needs of our state. Using data from the Community College Survey of Student Engagement and U.S. Department of Educa tion, Washington Monthly rates community colleges in a number of areas, including collaborative learning, student effort, academic rigor, student-faculty interac tion and support for learning. Retention, graduation and completion rates are also factored into the rankings. eleventh in the Three-year graduation/transfer rate at 57.9 percent. This number indicates the percentage of students who graduate or transfer to another college Chipola offers the Bachelor of Science Degree, the Associate in Arts Degree, the Associate in Science Degree and Workforce Development programs. According to Washington Monthlys editors, We designed the Washington Monthly college rankings to embody the American higher education compact at the institutional level. Instead of lauding colleges for closing their doors to all but an elite few, we give high marks to institutions that enroll low-income students, help them graduate and dont charge them an arm and a leg to attend. These rankings are especially important because they highlight the systems mission of providing access to low-cost, high-quality education and job training, said Chancellor Hanna. I am extremely proud of all of our colleges for helping prepare Floridians for highskill, high-wage jobs.
