Burnie Thompson There are only two documents in question, referring to the probable cause in the Floyd Parrish case, which led to the sheriffs arrest after he released Parrish from custody. Holding up a piece of paper, Thompson declared, You have the docu ment that State Attorney Willie Meggs


To the editor: There have been some allegations about the Liberty County Jail that are not true. I would like to address some of them. Concerning an inmate that was pepper sprayed: that did happen for a reason. She refused to obey commands and was yell ing and screaming and was out of control. Jail personnel, whether state or county. have used pepper spray to control inmates as opposed to grabbing them and possibly As for the allegation that a female inmate being held on a murder charge is serving as a trustee, this information is false. She has never been a trustee. As for this female and another female going off the premises to the Jail Administra tors home; this information is also false. The Liberty County Jail sends out on average six male inmates, Monday through Thurs day each week, with two county Department of Corrections. They run mowers and other machinery on maintain ing the cemeteries (approximately 28) in Liberty County. This saves the county tax payers on average approximately $99,712 per year, based on minimum wage. Inmates also help the Senior Citizens Program with loading the food items that are from the Food Fair Program into each pastors vehicle so they can give to their needy pa rishioners. They also help in the fund raisers that are held at the Liber ty County Sheriffs like getting out and helping in whatever way they can. Lt. Reggie Etheridge is the Jail Ad ministrator and has done a very good job. He found a way to save money by having inmates cook the meals that are served in the jail. Before this program spending approximately $5,500 to $6,000 on meals from the Department of Cor rections monthly. Lt. Etheridge researched a better way of saving money and improving food would meet the needs and nutritional value for the inmates. The cost per month has been approxi mately $2,500 to $3,000. This has been Lt. Etheridges devotion to his job goes above and beyond what is required of him. He puts in anywhere from 10 12 hours daily to make sure the jail needs are met. Operating a jail does present problems and they are handled when a problem occurs. You have to remember that inmates are housed for a reason, but we do treat them well.

Sgt. John Summers of the Liberty County Sheriffs Office was patrolling S.R. 20 around 1:40 a.m. on Oct. 12 when he noticed a westbound four-door Dodge car driving erratically. The driver continued on for a half mile before responding to the deputys signal to pull over. He stopped the driver at the intersection of S.R. 20 and Odell Owens Road. While speaking with the driver, Linda Coleman Haun, the deputy noted the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from inside the car. Haun said she had consumed one and a half beers before dark that evening. After failing a roadside sobriety test, she was taken into custody. Breath samples analyzed at the sheriffs office gave a blood alcohol content reading of .112 and .111. The legal limit is .08. She was charged with DUI and booked into the county jail. Teen charged after pawning gun A 19-year-old Hosford resident who pawned a .22-caliber revolver at a Blountstown shop two months earlier has been charged with delinquent in possession The warrant stated that Dallas Troy Tucker, whose thumbprint was found on the pawnbrokers transaction form, had been previously adjudicated delinquent after he pleaded no contest to a felony charge in 2011. The charge prevents him from owning a gun for ten years after his original offense. He was taken into custody Oct. 8. DALLAS TUCKER The victim was 15-year-old Mirna Domingo-Perez, a native of Guatemala who was living in Marianna. Rangel Manilla, a Mexican man who was living in Quincy but often stayed in a camper at the Clarksville watermelon farm. was interested in the young girl but she did not return his feelings due to their age difference. They had worked together in the past. He picked her up at her home the morning of Oct. 5 after asking her to help set up chairs and tables for a party he said his boss was having. Investigators said the girl was hanged sometime late that Saturday night (Oct. 5) or early Sunday morning. Manilla used a forklift to raise the girl into place and hanged her. He later put a noose around his neck. Using a rope tied to the hydraulic lever on the forklift, he lowered the pallet he had been standing on and hanged himself, according to Nichols. He said there was no evidence that anyone else was at the scene and said there did not appear to be any indication of drug or alcohol use. Before she died, the teenager sent a text message to a family member that she feared for her life. We believe he (Manilla) sent a few text messages to some close friends indicating that he had done something really bad and was going to have to pay for it, Nichols said. We are working with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to sort through cell phone content from both subjects in an effort to gain a clearer picture of the deceased relationship and the events that took place prior to the crime, according to a statement The statement concluded, Although we are active at this time, pending the report from the Medical (ET), the West Gadsden Historical Society (WGHS) will celebrate the Grand Opening of the recently restored historic Greensboro Depot located beside the Apalachicola Northern Railroad (AN RR) at 115 At the same time, the newly con structed adjacent classroom building that has been named the Patricia Fletcher Vice Meeting Facility will be dedicated in her memory. Trish was a co-founder as well as Vice-President of WGHS and was an ardent, vocal supporter. She can never be replaced and will always be missed by the Society. The Greensboro Depot was built of the AN RR) and is the only re maining original depot on the line which runs from River Junction (Chattahoochee) in Gadsden County to Port St. Joe in Gulf County. About 40 years ago, the depot was moved from its original location between the main track and the side track to a nearby lot. It was then remodeled by Nelson Clark and used as his barber shop as well as a thrift shop operated by area United Methodist Churches. Several years ago Progress Ener gy built a transmission line through this area of Gadsden County and many miles of the line follow the AN RR right-of-way. The old depot building site was in the direct path of the transmission line through the Town of Greensboro. WGHS saw the need to advocate for the saving of this piece of history. Following many discussions between WGHS, Progress Energy, and St. Joe Land Company, a nearby lot was donated by St. Joe Land Company and Prog ress Energy contributed a grant defraying the cost of the relocation of the depot. The depot is once again on a lot adjacent to the tracks. The Society is most appreciative of this grant and the property on which to relocate the depot building. Without the cooperation of these two corporations working with WGHS, this saving of a piece of Floridas his tory would not have been possible. West Gadsden Historical So ciety was fortunate to receive a grant through the U.S. Department of Transportation by which we were able to restore the depot and construct an adjoining classroom building.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTOBER 16, 2013 The following comment was made by a 97-year-old Dutch woman, the mother of a friend with whom I do business. She is one of those stalwart Old Dutch people who remembers the atrocities of World War II and American sol diers saved her and her family from the Germans. What got into the brain of these GOP idiots? Making the USA the laughing stock of the world, the richest most demo cratic country, denying so many people healthcare land of the brave and home of the greed. She and Europeans in general closely follow American political follies because what our dys functional Congress does affects themin their pocketbooks. As part of the International Monetary Fund activ tries met in Washington D.C. last week. They ended their two-day meeting with a collective statement of Why would the Russians be concerned about Americas dysfunctional Congress? Simple answer. About 45% of Russias foreign exchange reserves are invested in U.S. Treasury securities. The Russians, the Chinese, the Japanese and many other countries are worried about their sovereign money invested in America. Countries invested in U.S. securities are alarmed at the cavalier manner in which the right-wing Tea Partiers are treating their investments. The issue isnt complicated. The Congresses in pany manager. The company manager, the Congress in this case, is about to cause the company to default on its loans which will cause the investors, the Chi nese and many more, to lose their money. Most people believe that China owns most of the ly the Social Security trust fund and the Federal Re lion isnt chump change, and it is understand able that the Chinese and other investors in the U.S. debt are nervous about their money. The short-term solution is to stop with the inane bickering, open the government for business and reassure international investors that America will pay its bills. A long-term solution is far more compli cated. Political extremists in Congress must stop their campaign to shut down the govern ment. If not, then kiss this place called Amer ica goodbye. Otherwise, the international in world affairs. Countries, like people, can only take so much of Americas right-wing nese or Russians will be happy to assume the mantle of inter national leadership that the U.S. now enjoys. But, try to explain that to right-wingers like Senator Ted only parroting the beliefs of his constituents who know even less about Americas place in the international pecking order than he does. A sensible Congress, if there is such a thing, role in providing goods and services to the Ameri can people and determine the cost. Then determine how to pay for governments contribution of goods and services to the American people. President George W. Bush wanted a war with Iraq. OK, have the gumption to tell the American people that they have to pay a war tax. That will prevent most wars because while the American people say they love a good war, they dont love it enough to pay for it. border with Mexico. OK by me but tell the Ameri can people that they have a fence tax and see where that goes. Assume that the government can resist doing re the cost with the national credit card, then deal with the more mundane, but more important, issues like the cost of social programs like Medicare. Figure out who has to pay what for social pro grams and have the backbone to tell us to collec tively pay up. If Medicare is important to a person, and I think it is, then they will pay for the service. I know that I will. But, I know that the belief that the Congress would deal with Americas issues in a democratic manner as envisioned by the Founders is pie in the sky. It wont happen because of extremist voters electing extremist politicians whose only goal is doomsday politics. C ORNER Jerry Cox is a retired military OXS Doomsday politics COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. WASHINGTON House Republicans of the government shutdown, and to ratio of arguments to explain why theyre taking to weight the merits, and the risk-versusNUMBER ONE out of the gate was the Republican insistence that everyone nego tiates the terms of continuing resolutions to fund the government, and the raising of the debt ceiling, which has been done 45 times since Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president. Theyre right that negotia tions routinely take place about spending levels, but never before has a minority of a minority party in Congress attempted to use the process to negate an existing law that passed both houses of Congress, was signed by the president, upheld by the Su election with President Obamas decisive victory at the ballot box. NUMBER TWO is the assertion by freshmen members of Congress on the Republican side that they never had a chance to vote on Obamacare. Thats because they were not then in Con gress. Neither were they there when Medi care, Medicaid, or Social Security were passed. Meanwhile, the House leadership after the fact, just so they could express themselves. But thats not enough, they say. of repealing Obamacare, and they feel compelled to do everything humanly and ise. Never mind that their goal is futile as long as Democrats control the Senate and Obama has his veto pen. If they wait until they win the majority in the Senate and take back the White House, Obamacare will have taken root and people will like it, just as they do Social Security and Medicare and prescription drug coverage. THIRD Republicans point to the dif the health care exchanges. Some of the systems crashed and even when they were back up and running, there were long wait times. Maybe Repub licans should go back to school and learn theres not always a direct link between cause and effect. Critics of Obamacare should at least consider the argument that the systems crashed because the idea of being able to get affordable health care coverage for themselves and their families is so popular that the sheer numbers overwhelmed the infrastructure that was created. Its a fair point to say the private consultants who did the work should have anticipated the numbers, but they didnt, and are now in the process that even the vaunted company of Apple had trouble rolling out their latest iPhone, and nobody suggested Apple shouldnt sell iPhones anymore or that the company should be shut down. FOURTH if the government cant run a web site, how can it run a seventh of t he economy, which is how big the health industry in in this country? Again, opening week jitters on the health exchanges does not make Obamacare a bad law. See above on cause and effect. LASTLY and while this is the most tenuous argument, it is also the most pas sionately embraced. Its just four words: Obama is a socialist. And for those who believe that, they dont even need any of the other reasons to oppose Obamacare. Its more of an emotional reaction than anything based on facts. But you can tell them that any insur socialism, and that the Obamacare model is based on work done by the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, and embraced by former Gov. Mitt Romney when he designed his plan for Massachu setts. Last time we checked Romney was a Republican. In the end, these are not arguments; these are pleas; desperations; or, more charitably: WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND by Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift Five funny reasons for government shutdown There was a Columbus Day parade here in New York City. Columbus thought he landed in India. Instead he landed in the Bahamas. If he were alive today hed be running an Italian cruise ship. DAVID LETTERMAN It is yet another bad day for the American gov ernment. Its still shut down Shut down like the New York Giants. CRAIG FERGUSON I dont how I feel about this. But Frito-Lay just announced that theyre coming out with new glow-in-the-dark Cheetos just in time for Hallow een. Glow-in-the-dark Cheetos. People asked, Are they safe to eat? And Frito-Lay said, Were they ever? JIMMY FALLON Today was day 14 of the government shut down. I am starting to forget what it is like to have a government. There was a guy with big ears and a suit who talked about hope. That is all gone. JIMMY KIMMEL Well folks, the stalemate continues. The two sides are miles apart. They are not even speak ing to one another. But enough about Kris and Bruce Jenner. JAY LENO I cant believe its Columbus day already. I havent even taken down my Arbor Day decora tions. CRAIG FERGUSON Columbus Day, of course, is the day we pay tribute to the most exciting city in central Ohio. CRAIG FERGUSON Just when you think that Congress could not do anything less, they manage to. At this point the government is like a house on Halloween that turns out the lights and leaves a bowl of candy on the front porch. JIMMY KIMMEL They said today that the government shut down will not interfere with NASAs next mission to Mars. Isnt that ironic? We can go to Mars but we cant go to the Statue of Liberty. JAY LENO Irans President Hassan Rouhani said he wants the Iranian people to stop chanting Death to America because he thinks its too harsh of a statement. Then the Iranian people were like, Paper cuts to America? JIMMY FALLON Over the weekend I got on the computer and I tried to sign up for Obamacare. I had no trouble whatsoever. I signed right up for Obamacare and ordered six months of Mexican Viagra. DAVID LETTERMAN On Thursday the Bears beat the Giants. Usu ally the Giants lose on Sundays but they wanted to get it in early this week so they could enjoy the weekend. JIMMY KIMMEL During a press conference yesterday, Presi dent Obama said that Congress needs to raise the debt ceiling because there arent any other quote rabbits in our hat. Plus, theyre still tired from their last trick, where they made thousands of jobs disappear. JIMMY FALLON Bruce Jenner and Kris Kardashian are split ting up after 22 years of marriage. On the plus side, they made it 21 years and 42 weeks longer than Kims last marriage. JAY LENO

TrophyCatch is the ultimate reward program for anglers, offer ing great prizes for doing the right thing, said Tom Champeau, director of the FWCs Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. TrophyCatch is FWCs latest angler-recognition program and goes much further than ever before to reward anglers for documenting and releasing trophy largemouth bass. The largemouth bass is the most sought-after recreational species in North America. Florida is home to a unique subspecies that has long been known for its superior growth rate and trophy size. The FWC will use data from this program to help enhance and promote trophy bass Anglers who register for free at are immediately eligible for an annual drawing for a Phoenix bass boat powered by Mercury. Then, when they catch a bass over 8 pounds, they simply take a quick photo of the the weight, snap a few more optional photos and release the bass to thrill another angler another day. By submitting photos for veri fication online, anglers become decal, plus awards based on the bass weight. Lunker Club entrants (8-9.9 pounds) receive a $50 Bass Pro Shops gift card and Bass King T-shirt. Trophy Club participants (10-12.9 pounds) earn a total of $150 worth of gift cards (Bass Pro Shops, Dicks Sporting Goods and/ or Rapala), plus a long-sleeve Tshirt. To be entered into the Hall of Fame, anglers must catch, carefully document and release a bass weigh ing more than 13 pounds but its worth it. Hall-of-Fame entrants also bag full of Bass King apparel, a Glen Lau video library and other prizes worth a total of $1,000. Bob Williams of Alloway, N.J., with guide Sean Rush of Trophy Bass Expeditions on Feb. 18,2012, when he hooked a 13-pound, 14-ounce largemouth on a big shiner. Rush contacted the FWC to have TrophyCatch program, the result being that Williams gets more than $1,000 in rewards for documenting and releasing his catch. Williams will also claim the state wide grand prize of the TrophyCatch ring. Over 4,000 anglers registered bass and 58 Trophy Club bass were documented. According to KP Cle ments, TrophyCatch coordinator, there were innumerable other huge bass reported around the state this have been nearly 17 pounds, but these submissions could not be Next year, we want everyone to be prepared to take a photo of their bass and submit photos to www., Cle ments said.

For the second year, which began Oct. 1, the only required photo, for all three club levels, must show the entire bass (head to tail) on a scale, with the weight clearly visible. Additional photos of the the angler holding the bass, the entire bass on a measuring board with the length released can be submitted, but are not required. Anglers who catch a Hall-of-Fame are encouraged to contact the FWC at 855-FL-TROPHY (358-7674) Four residents from Okaloosa and Walton counties are facing multiple charges for killing at least seven deer at night on Eglin Air Force Base, two of them large trophy bucks in velvet. Justin Leon Bailey, 23, of Nicev ille; William Cody Meakin, also 23, of Mossy Head; and 16 and 17-year-old juveniles from Niceville are each charged with taking or kill ing deer during the closed season, roadway and willful and wanton waste of wildlife. degree misdemeanor, punishable imprisonment. Florida Fish and Wildlife Con servation Commission (FWC) law ing calls immediately after two deer, one of them minus the head, were found on private property adjacent to Northwest Florida State College in Niceville in August. The suspects were sending Facebook posts to each other, and the posts were then circulated, said Lt. Mark Hollinhead, an FWC law enforcement supervisor. Hollinhead said the deer were killed at night along Highway 85 in the Duke Field area of Eglin. Highway 85 runs from Niceville to Crestview. The thing about this case is the suspects didnt use any of the meat from any of the deer. They simply left the animals to rot, Hollinhead said. The suspects did remove the velvet antlers of two large trophy bucks but they got rid of the antlers when they heard we were conducting an investigation. According to Hollinhead, the racks were clearly shown in the Facebook posts and would likely measure in the 120s to 130s on the Boone and Crockett measuring system. The racks were supposedly tossed in the Yellow River and have not been recovered. the suspects have been seized as evidence. Florida is one of 39 states partici pating in the Wildlife Violator Com pact. Depending on the outcome of the court case, Florida statutes allow for a three-year in-state license suspension, and will also apply to all states that are members of the Compact.

Of course, Im the same guy that once wrote about how deer hunting buck is an exception to that rule. That little 8-point was my pride and joy, and his horns sat proudly on a shelf in my room. (Taking a deer to a taxidermist was unheard of in my family.) For about two years, I showed them off to anybody who had the misfortune of visiting including the mailman, the preacher, assorted relatives and some very unim pressed girls. But one day the unthinkable happened: The antlers fell off the shelf and broke in half. De spite my best efforts, I couldnt glue them back together. For years they remained in two pieces, most recently tacked to a board in my garage. They were faded, gray and dusty. That buck de served better in my opinion, but I couldnt justify the expense of taking it to a professional. Last year I decided to see what the Internet might have to offer and Im glad I did. Within seconds, I found a forum where people were discussing broken antlers and sure enough there was a post about dealing with a broken skull cap. Bingo! It turns out that Van Dykes Taxidermy Sup ply sells replica skull caps for everything from whitetails to mule deer to elk. For less than $10, they sent me a plastic, molded form with screws sticking out from the pedicles. I simply sawed my antlers off at the base of the broken skull, drilled a hole and glued my antlers on. Voila! Both halves of my trophy are re school. But what to do about the fading and discoloration? Here again, the Internet was useful. A poster on one bulletin board discussed how he cleaned his old, sunbleached horns then applied a light wal nut colored-stain to bring back the natural color. I did the same and breathed new life into this old set of horns. My next tasks were to seal them appropriately and then use a $10 kit to mount them. With any luck, the rack that has been languish ing in my garage will soon be hanging in my den. All thanks to a technology that allows us to ac cess helpful information even on the most arcane topics. The Internet doesnt yet allow us to experience my youth is a pretty close second.

BHS stays perfect on season with 49-0 win by Michael DeVuyst, contributing writer EASTPOINT Blountstown (7-0, 2-0) scored early and of ten beating the Franklin County Seahawks (0-6) 49-0 last Friday night in Eastpoint. Franklin County attempted an onside kick to start the game but the kick was recovered by Tripp Taylor on the 44. On the next play, Hunter Jordan connected with Tanner Peacock down the left sideline for a 56 yard TD catch. Franklin to back running plays that lost yardage forced a punt. Blountstowns next offensive play was a 64 yard TD run by Fabian Solomon. A three and out by the Tiger defense and Blount stown had the ball again on their side of the 50 at the 47 yard line. This time the Tigers took four plays to score capped by a 2 yard run by Solomon. A 45 yard punt return by Corin Peterson rounded out Blountstowns Alex Mayorga scored on a one play drive to start the second half on a 27 yard run. Lonnie ter score on a 17 yard run. Andrew Bennett was perfect on all extra point halftime score. The Tiger offense racked up 246 yards and 6 TDs on only 14 halftime plays. The second half started with a run ning clock and mostly freshman and sophomore players for the Tigers. On the second half, freshman Trey Mat thews intercepted a Seahawk pass and returned it 55 yards for the last Tiger margin 49-0. The Tiger offense ran only 27 plays on the night but racked up 302 total yards. The Tiger defense limited Franklin County to 60 yards on 42 plays and produced their fourth shutout of the year. Fabian Solomon led the Tiger of fense with 111 yards on 5 carries and 2 TDs. Freshman running backs Demi tris Thomas and Trey Matthews added total. Anthony Wyrick and Thomas Duane Laramore recorded 7 tackles including a sack and T. Taylor, C. Peterson and Ayers Hassig had 6 tackles each. Now the schedule gets interesting for the Tigers. Back-to-back district games will determine the district champion. First up is the Chipley Tigers (4-2, 0-1). This is the game many Blountstown fans have been looking towards. Tiger Head Coach Greg Jordan looks forward to the competition, Chipley is a lot like us on offense. They have good offensive linemen and one of the best runners in North Florida. They have a few other skill players that can take it to the house on any play, he said. We have to play our best on defense and limit the big play. I like our chances on offense as long as we can keep possession of the ball and avoid turnovers and penalties. Chipley has their backs against the wall due to an early season district loss to South Walton. A Chipley win will set the district race up for anyone to grab. A Blountstown win will put them in the lead to clinch the district champion ship. If youve been waiting to catch a game this year, this is the one to go to.
