"I knew I needed some sort of a challenge," said Austin Bain Shirley, 25, about his decision to cross the United States on foot. "My whole life I've had a roof over my head, a means to a hot meal and a shower," he said. But there was the gradual realization that he wasn't living the life he wanted. He graduated from Plano West Senior High School in 2007 but was sidelined for the next year after undergoing reconstructive shoulder surgery for a football injury. He stayed home to recuperate. "As soon as I was fully healed, I went into the Navy," he said. After a four year stint in service, he enrolled at Embry Riddle University. Throughout it all, he partied and enjoyed life. When he started working as a bartender at a popular nightspot early this year, he began to see things differently. "Honestly, what is appealing about that?" he asks, explaining that he got a good look from the other side of the bar at how he had been living. "I can see how people can get stuck in that lifestyle," he said. "It can sidetrack your future and take away your character." He decided it was time to make some changes. Although he was only 16 days into his trip when he spoke with The Journal Austin had already experienced a personal revelation. "It's amazing the things you can do and the positive thoughts you can create when you try to think positively all the time and are not polluting your head," he said. He may be just beginning his pilgrimage, but said, "It's already been a really good learning experience."See AUSTIN & ARCHER continued on page 14Austin Bain Shirley and his companion, Archer, a Siberian Husky, got quite a welcome in Hosford last week.by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA student at Blountstown High School was arrested Tuesday after a gun was found in his backpack, according to a report from the Calcovered the gun when she looked inside a backpack that had been mine who it belonged to, she found The backpack and the weapon were turned over to the school reA 17-year-old senior was ques tioned and admitted to bringing the "The suspect stated that he was having some issues off of campus after school and felt that his life was being threatened, and therefore had ing to a news release from the sher The teenager told deputies he stole He was charged with possession to the Department of Juvenile JusBHS student charged with bringing gun on campus STATE WILL DROP CHARGES IF SHE MEETS ALL CONDITIONSUzzell signs deferred prosecution agreement by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorIf she resigns as Liberty County School Superintendent and follows the other terms of her agreement with the state Uzzell, 51, won't have to wor ry about going to trial.

Kelley was selected from among many candidates from across the state. The Academy is composed of participants of Florida. The Council for Educational Change (CEC) welcomed 25 of Floridas high est performing school and district level educational leaders to Tallahassee for the second year of the Commissioners Leadership Academy (CLA). Designed and delivered by the CEC, the purpose of the CLA is to build leadership capacity at the school, district and state levels.

She further stated, I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to build my educational leadership skills. Ultimately, the students and staff of the when we invest into our current and future leaders. The next session will be held Feb. 3-5, 2014 in Tampa, and the concluding session will be on June 11, 2014. As was the case with last years graduates, these outstanding educators will be tapped by their districts and the State to further enhance the leadership among their colleague principals. Through its vari ous programs, the Council continues its efforts to improve Florida schools and serves as a catalyst in education.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 6, 2013 COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. What happens when law and liberty collide?BY BILL COTTERELL Bristol is a friendly little town, where wait resses call you darlin and urge you to go back to the buffet for more, where the only thing ad vertised on the Piggly Wiggly marquee is deer corn. So maybe its not surprising that Liberty Countys newly elected sheriff decided in March to turn loose a longtime resident accused of car rying a concealed pis tol. Testimony in Sheriff Nick Finchs trial last week indicated that he didnt consider the man dangerous, and advised him at the jail to get a concealed-carry permit if he wanted to keep a pistol in his pocket. The case drew nation wide attention and made Finch a hero among gunrights groups, because he the Second Amendment. A jury Thursday acquitted public records. The state was playing a losing hand. Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell pleaded that the case wasnt about guns but about use of govern ment power. But he couldnt convince six jurors that Finch was responsible for wiping out the ar rest record and removing incident reports of the concealed-weapons case, which the sheriff denied doing. Defense attorney Jimmy Judkins looked like Sheriff Andy Taylor, as he summed up his case for jurors in Floridas smallest county. There aint many of yall, but you have your own common code or beliefs. They are a lot different than in Miami-Dade County or Hillsborough County, Judkins drawled, leaning toward the rail of the jury box and peering over his glasses. Its a way of life over here for people to own guns. Theres a distinct possibility that, every now and then, one of yall is going to make a mistake, and he (Finch) doesnt want to create a convicted fel on out of an incident that could be misunderstood. Judkins also said, The real question is, did the sheriff do anything with any wrongful purpose, or did he just decide to let go a man who wasnt bothering anybody riding down the road, just happened to have a pis tol in his pocket, wasnt bothering anybody. Whether they shared Finchs absolute belief in the Second Amendment, or believed his denial that he didnt erase or falsify the arrest records, jurors took little more than an hour to put Finch out on the courthouse steps. There, he proclaimed his continued belief that the Bill of Rights trumps state law, in these cir cumstances, along with his faith that Liberty Coun ty is aptly named. It was interesting that the state did not challenge dump the weapon charge. The legal charges against Finch were not about why he released the man, but how he went about it. Well then, what if another sheriff thinks the 0.08 blood-alcohol threshold for drunken driving is too low, and turns loose anybody who blows less than a 0.10? Thats an imprecise comparison, because the Second Amendment gives people the right to bear arms, while the 21st doesnt give us the right to bear booze, rather giving the states the power to allow it. But public employees, especially elected of sions. This is especially true in law enforcement. A Public Employees Relations Commission Swindle, who wrote nonmoving violations for state Reps. Charles McBurney, R-Jacksonville, and Mike 15 when the FHP determined that he had signed false documents a $10 proof-of-insurance ticket instead of a $250 speeding summons in each leg In fairness, it should be noted that the lawmakers didnt try to use their power to sway the trooper. They didnt have to. Swindle said he was follow ing an unwritten law in the Highway Patrol the one that says you try to give a break when the guy youve stopped votes on the agencys budget, which includes everybodys jobs. Of course, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles denied any such unwritten rule the straight-face test. Maybe decisions like Finchs or Swindles should be immune from prosecution under what we could call the Fawn Hall rule. She was the secretary to Col.

NOVEMBER 6, 2013 / THE CALHOUN-LIBER TY JOURNAL Page 7 OUR VETERANS BY WOODY STEWART, Trustee, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 12010Nineteen-year-old Marine Clarence King looked up from his gun turret and saw the Japanese dive bomber, bomb bay doors open and bomb in plain sight, coming straight for him. The airplane was so close that he could see the pilot wearing goggles, a white scarf, and a big grin too. This is it, he thought, Im about to die. He was a long way, half a world in fact, from his home in the tiny hamlet of Vilas, in southern Liberty County. But, just like all the other Marines and Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier Bennington that day, he was there for a purpose to defeat an Empire that had wickedly attacked the United States. Just two years before, Clarence was Times were hard all over the country but especially in the King household. Clarences father had been killed in an accident when Clarence was just ten years old. His mother had tried to eke out as a postmaster. It paid very little. Clarence dropped out of school and got a job driving a milk truck but that pay was meager too. Clarence realized his mouth was one too many for his mother to feed. He knew he had to go. At age 17 he enlisted in the Marines. Right away he began doing something he would do throughout the war. He sent his paychecks home to his mother. I really didnt need the money and Mama did, he told me. Besides, the Marine Corps made sure I got plenty to eat, clothes to wear, and a place to sleep. His initial assignment was very good duty. He was guarding the war department building in Washington, D.C. while the Pentagon was being built nearby. The hours werent bad and Washington was a sight to behold. But the numbers of wounded men returning stateside were growing as were the numbers of men being buried at sea and on foreign soil. Clarence was needed in the war zone. He chose to become a seagoing Marine and that would take him He was later informed that the ship was hit by a German torpedo and sank with all aboard. Clarence was assigned to a deck gun crew aboard the newly-christened aircraft carrier Bennington. Also aboard was a young radio operator from Mississippi named Jerry Clower. He would later become famous for his comical stories. But for now, Clarence and Jerry, and the rest of the Benningtons crew, were The Bennington would see lots of action. She was frequently the closest U. S. carrier to the Japanese mainland, a particularly precarious place to be in light of the fanatical sentiment of the Japanese military, especially toward their homeland. The Benningtons wreaked havoc on Japanese industry and ports. The Japanese tried to exact retribution. When the klaxon sounded the men had little time to get to their battle stations. Within minutes the ships watertight doors would be closed and bolted shut. They would not be opened until after the battle was over. This if she were hit. But God only knows how many men have gone to a watery grave because they didnt get topside fast enough. Clarence decided he was not going to be one of those he always slept in his uniform. The men aboard ship would often be at their battle stations for long hours. In the southern latitudes the heat was northern latitudes the air was frigid and the wind brisk. At night, the Japanese the ships, and continue their attacks. Operations continued around the clock. It was wartime, after all. The American fleet would be encircled by a Combat Air Patrol (CAP) many miles out from them. These were enemy from allied ships. Many of the enemy aircraft would be engaged at that point. Some would usually get through and continue toward their targets, After many close calls, Vilas man among the lucky ones to come home after WWIIprimarily the aircraft carriers. They would be met by air. Every gun on every ship would be It seems incredible that enemy aircraft could get through the tremendous wall sometimes did. The results were often catastrophic for our ships and men. Each carrier was essentially a big bomb just waiting to explode. They were loaded with ammunition, torpedoes, and tens of thousands of gallons of gasoline. A properly placed bomb or a kamikaze (suicide bomber) strike could send them all to oblivion. And now back to the Japanese dive bomber that nearly sank the Bennington. Without warning, the airplane had suddenly appeared out of some low clouds. To make matters worse, the with fully loaded and fueled bombers and torpedo aircraft, waiting to launch. But, for whatever reason, the bomb did length of the ship and was then shot down. It is highly unlikely the pilot had a change of heart. A stuck bomb release was almost certainly the problem. No matter the reason, the Bennington had skirted disaster. Had the bomb hit the ship, the Bennington and her ABOVE LEFT: Clarence King met former U.S. Senator Elizabeth Doyle in Washing al. ABOVE RIGHT: Young Marine Clarence King in 1943.

Afterward, the Captain addressed the Benningtons crew over the ships loudspeaker. Men, he told them, weve just had an extremely close call but fortune was with us. Paint a gold horseshoe on the ships bridge this will signify our good luck. After each close call the crew would add a chevron below the horseshoe. Bomber and Kamikaze attacks became routine. It was always a sort of race, a very deadly race. The gunners tried to knock down the enemy aircraft before they could hit our ships. The gunners usually succeeded but not always. Many ships were hit and sunk, including some of our carriers. Another Kamikaze came so close to hitting the Bennington that seawater from the explosion splashed up on the ship, and some of the airplanes pieces littered the By the end of the war there would be a column of them. Im reminded of another WWII veteran, Elmer OBryan, who passed away in July of 2011. He was in the Navy and crewed a deck gun aboard the heavy cruiser Pittsburgh. On several occasions he related some of his battle experiences to me. He could not recall these events without tears rolling down his cheeks. And at times he would have to stop and could not continue. Even after 60 years had passed, the memories were still too vivid and too painful. In one particular battle, his ship was attacked by Kamikaze after Kamikaze. Every gun was blazing and yet the Kamikazes kept coming. It was the stuff of nightmares. The Bennington and her crew would also do their part at Iwo Jima and Okinawa, two of the more famous battles in our nations history. But one Mother Nature. The Task Group sailed through a tremendous typhoon that sank several destroyers, along with their entire crews, and badly damaged numerous other ships. The Pittsburgh had her bow ripped completely off the had to steam backwards all the way to a friendly port for repairs. The Bennington herself didnt escape damage.The massive ship had her bow nearly crushed and she, too, had to steam away from the war zone for repairs. But it would take two atomic bombs to finally convince the Japanese, reluctantly, to give up. Two months later the Bennington was anchored in Toyko Bay, the very home of the ferocious enemy that had recently surrendered. The war had been declared over and Surrender Documents had been signed. But our men had not forgotten Pearl Harbor. Clarence King slept in his uniform. After the war Clarence returned home to Liberty County. He gained employment with the U. S. Forest Service, from which he would later retire. But he soon had his eye on a lovely young lady named Mary Fenn. She could not escape his charm. They were married for over 60 years and had three children, two boys and a girl. Sadly, his beloved Mary, his soulmate, passed away on Christmas Eve in 2008. Today Clarence King still possesses young man. The engaging smile and kind eyes are, Im sure, the same as in his youth. And hes the sort of man that, once you meet him, youll know youve made a friend. And its a rare Sunday that Clarence isnt in church at Lake Mystic Baptist. Hes also been an integral part of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Honor Guard for many years. In uniform he has attended hundreds of funerals for other veterans, often standing in the heat, the cold, the wind or rain, to give now, turning 90 years old this month, he realizes the time to retire from that is near. He lives not far from Sumatra and the trips to graveyards seem longer than they used to. His joints are a little stiffer too. Clarence King has earned a rest. Our living WWII veterans are a vanishing breed. Their average age now is 89. They fought for our country at a time when America was truly in great peril. The German military and the Imperial Japanese forces were two of the greatest war machines ever, and they were intent upon our destruction. Men like Clarence King and Elmer OBryan did not let that happen. We will forever be in their debt. BELOW: King shown sixth from left in Washington D.C.

Jorge A. Garcia (DOB 10/28/58) had been oper ating a business breeding and selling several species of monkeys. This business has been operating for seven years, said Capt. David Dipre, area investigations super visor for the FWC. We have been looking into it and were, fortunately, able to shut it down. Anyone wishing to possess, exhibit or sell monkeys in Florida must be properly licensed. This ensures that the animals are treated humanely and kept in healthy conditions, and that all humans inter acting with the animals remain safe. This business was not only selling the monkeys without a license, but sell ing them to unlicensed individuals as well, Dipre said. So, people were receiving these animals without the proper train ing and knowledge to care for them. Also, the buyers were violating the law themselves, perhaps unknowingly. Twenty-eight monkeys, as well as other wildlife, were seized and placed in licensed facilities. The people running the operation face charges of possession of wildlife without a permit, sale of wildlife without a permit, sale or transfer of wildlife to an unlicensed person, caging violations and records-keeping viola tions. These could lead to If you know of or suspect any similar viola tions, please report them to the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline by calling 888-404-3922 or texting Tip@MyFWC.com.

Green sea turtles are nesting at an unprecedented pace this year The number of green sea turtle nests in Florida this year was more than double the count of the previous high est year. Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission (FWC) have docu mented more than 25,000 green turtle nests on 26 index beaches in the state in 2013. We are astounded and pleased by the high number of green turtle nests documented in 2013, said Dr. Blair With erington, FWC research sci entist. It looks like the years of conservation efforts for this endangered species are paying off. FWC-trained and authorized surveyors across the state monitor nests on a set of index beaches that span nearly 250 miles and are the focus of the Index Beach Nesting Survey. These surveys began in 1989. counting guidelines, making it possible for FWC researchers to use the data from these beaches to identify trends. The trend for green turtles shows an exponential increase in nesting over the past 25 years. In 1989, biologists documented only 464 green turtle nests on index beaches. In 2013, this in dex nest count was 25,553. The index count represents about 70 percent of green turtle nesting statewide. Leatherback sea turtle nest counts have also risen dra matically over the past quarter century. However, the 2013 count of 322 leatherback nests on index beaches was 193 lower than last year. Loggerhead sea turtles, the most prevalent sea turtle species on Floridas shores, accounted for 44,810 nests on index beaches this year, down from 2012s near-record count of 58,172 nests. Although this federally threatened species nests on the same beaches as green turtles and leatherbacks, loggerheads have not shown the recovery in numbers seen in nesting by the other two species. The high level of loggerhead nesting last year fol lowed a pronounced drop in the species nest counts between 1998 and 2007. Hundreds of sur veyors from conser vation organizations, universities and fed eral, state and local governments along with other volunteers make possible the extensive data col lection on Floridas nesting sea turtles. dex Nesting Beach Survey, the Statewide Nesting Beach Survey documents sea turtle nesting on nearly all sandy beaches in Florida. Data from the statewide surveys will be available in early 2014. The FWC's role in coordi nating Floridas sea turtle nest counts, training surveyors and compiling data is funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and sales of the state's sea turtle license plate. Florida residents can purchase the plate to sup port these efforts at BuyaPlate. com.For more information about trends in sea turtle nest counts, visit MyFWC.com/Research, click on "Wildlife," then click on "Nesting" under the "Sea Turtle" heading. Report sick or injured sea turtles to the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922). Iamonia Lake & Lake IamoniaYoud think a name like Iamonia would be unique, yet in Florida we seem to en joy reusing even the most obscure Native American words. Thus, in Calhoun County, we have Iamonia Lake, which is a long, narrow lake on the west side of the Apalachicola River, just north of the Gulf County line. This is Iamonia Lake in Calhoun County. Not to be confused with Lake Iamonia in Leon County.. Over in Leon County, they have Lake Iamonia, a much bigger lake that is also more well-known. It seems like Ive spent my whole life trying to explain to folks that a) yes, I do mean Iamonia Lake; b) no, its not in Leon County; and c) yes, I realize thats a strange name to recycle. The best I can tell, after countless sec onds of Internet research, is that the name may be linked to a Seminole village called Hiamonee on the Ochlocknee River near the Georgia border. That information is courtesy of Carolee Boyles and can be found here: http://carolee-boyles.suite101. com/old-towns-and-flowered-rocksa369098 Iamonia also isnt unique among the parts of Florida. For example, both Bay and Taylor counties in the northern part in North Floridas Madison County, and another one originating in Polk County in the central part of the state. If youre looking for Dade City, dont look in Miami-Dade County. Instead, its on the western side of Florida in Pasco County. Also, be careful not to confuse Lake Okeechobee (in South Florida) with the Okefenokee Swamp near Jacksonville. And neither is anywhere near the Ochloknee River just west of Tallahassee. And while were on the subject of names, I owe the following tidbit to Bill McCartney, longtime executive director Beach. According to Bill, that whole name is a lie. First of all, it was never a fort, it was a camp, Bill told me once. Sec County. And, its not on the beach, its on the bay. JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South

Lieutenant Colonel Bob Quint, River Bat talion Raider Team Coach said, I couldnt be prouder of my Raid er Team. These 12 Ca dets worked extremely hard over the past three months.

"I knew I needed some sort of a challenge," said Austin Bain Shirley, 25, about his decision to cross the United States on foot. "My whole life I've had a roof over my head, a means to a hot meal and a shower," he said. But there was the gradual realization that he wasn't living the life he wanted. He graduated from Plano West Senior High School in 2007 but was sidelined for the next year after undergoing reconstructive shoulder surgery for a football injury. He stayed home to recuperate. "As soon as I was fully healed, I went into the Navy," he said. After a four year stint in service, he enrolled at Embry Riddle University. Throughout it all, he partied and enjoyed life. When he started working as a bartender at a popular nightspot early this year, he began to see things differently. "Honestly, what is appealing about that?" he asks, explaining that he got a good look from the other side of the bar at how he had been living. "I can see how people can get stuck in that lifestyle," he said. "It can sidetrack your future and take away your character." He decided it was time to make some changes. Although he was only 16 days into his trip when he spoke with The Journal Austin had already experienced a personal revelation. "It's amazing the things you can do and the positive thoughts you can create when you try to think positively all the time and are not polluting your head," he said. He may be just beginning his pilgrimage, but said, "It's already been a really good learning experience." See AUSTIN & ARCHER continued on page 14 Austin Bain Shirley and his companion, Archer, a Siberian Husky, got quite a welcome in Hosford last week. by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor A student at Blountstown High School was arrested Tuesday after a gun was found in his backpack, according to a report from the Cal covered the gun when she looked inside a backpack that had been mine who it belonged to, she found The backpack and the weapon were turned over to the school re A 17-year-old senior was ques tioned and admitted to bringing the "The suspect stated that he was having some issues off of campus after school and felt that his life was being threatened, and therefore had ing to a news release from the sher The teenager told deputies he stole He was charged with possession to the Department of Juvenile Jus BHS student charged with bringing gun on campus STATE WILL DROP CHARGES IF SHE MEETS ALL CONDITIONS Uzzell signs deferred prosecution agreement by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor If she resigns as Liberty County School Superintendent and follows the other terms of her agreement with the state Uzzell, 51, won't have to wor ry about going to trial.

Students conducted lab experiments and phys ics activities, and learned from two area doctors. Steven Spence, M.D., and Susan Compton, M.D., made presenta tions to the students about the renal sys tem. Dr. Spence and Dr. Compton are both gradu ates of Marianna High School. Spence is a fam ily physician with Inter nal Medical Associ ates in Marianna. Dr. Compton is a nephrol ogist with Nephrology Associates in Panama City. Chipola profes sors and high school faculty led students in STEM activities. Some students par ticipated in an inves tigative challenge on the renal system. Others participated in a design challenge in which they construct ed and launched water rockets. The event was orga nized by the Florida Learns STEM Scholars Project, a collaborative effort of the Panhandle Area Educational Con sortium (PAEC) target ing gifted and talented students in grades 9-12. The initiative is part of a multi-million dollar grant awarded to the consortia for the devel opment of an enriched and rigorous STEM education campaign to reach students at tending Floridas rural schools. According to Bren da Crouch, Florida Learns STEM Schol ars Project Manager, These events offer the students a chance to meet other gifted and talented students in the region but more im portantly, they help build excitement and optimism that a STEM-related education and career are both achievable and at tainable. Chipola College has embraced the STEM project and committed personnel, space, and is assisting with plan ning future events. Col lege president Dr. Gene Prough, says, Chipola is proud to be a part of this program to encourage students to continue their education in the areas of science, engineering, technology and math ematics.

These statewide professional development opportunities will serve as valuable resources impacting hundreds of educators. At the opening session, Floridas Com missioner of Education, Pam Stewart, ad dressed the participants. She stressed the importance of ensuring that all students graduate from high school, college and career ready. Presenting at the session was a panel which included, Senator Bill Montford and Dominic Calabro, President and CEO of Florida TaxWatch. Nationally recognized speaker, Dr. Todd Whitaker, discussed building a culture of excellence. The evening concluded with a reception hosted by Florida TaxWatch. According to Kelley, Commissioner Stewart was receptive to our input and asked us to share our thoughts and opinions related to improving Floridas education system and Common Core Standards. She further stated, I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to build my educational leadership skills. Ultimately, the students and staff of the when we invest into our current and future leaders. The next session will be held Feb. 3-5, 2014 in Tampa, and the concluding session will be on June 11, 2014. As was the case with last years graduates, these outstanding educators will be tapped by their districts and the State to further enhance the leadership among their colleague principals. Through its vari ous programs, the Council continues its efforts to improve Florida schools and serves as a catalyst in education. The mission of the Council is to develop business and education partnerships; prepare and empower school leaders; and use lessons learned through research to address critical issues in education.

For several years, 10-year-old Reagan Hall of Blountstown, has been waiting in the wings for her opportunity to bring to life the lead role of Clara. This is Reagans year and she will be a delightful Clara. As a special treat, Reagans twin brother, Brody, will be beside her on stage as Claras brother Fritz. The twins are perfectly suited for the roles as rival siblings.

However, Brody really enjoys aggravating his sister and for his part as Fritz he has been given permission from his parents, Jim and Traci Hall, to aggravate Clara as much as necessary. Bonita Deck, director of the production, says Brody required very little coaching. To see the Hall twins in action and also a special guest artist from The Northwest Florida Ballet of Fort Wal ton Beach, make your plans now to attend The Nutcracker performance on Sunday, Dec. 1 at 3 p.m. (ET) at Veterans Memorial Civic Center in Bristol.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 6, 2013 COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. What happens when law and liberty collide? BY BILL COTTERELL Bristol is a friendly little town, where wait resses call you darlin and urge you to go back to the buffet for more, where the only thing ad vertised on the Piggly Wiggly marquee is deer corn. So maybe its not surprising that Liberty Countys newly elected sheriff decided in March to turn loose a longtime resident accused of car rying a concealed pis tol. Testimony in Sheriff Nick Finchs trial last week indicated that he didnt consider the man dangerous, and advised him at the jail to get a concealed-carry permit if he wanted to keep a pistol in his pocket. The case drew nation wide attention and made Finch a hero among gunrights groups, because he the Second Amendment. A jury Thursday acquitted public records. The state was playing a losing hand. Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell pleaded that the case wasnt about guns but about use of govern ment power. But he couldnt convince six jurors that Finch was responsible for wiping out the ar rest record and removing incident reports of the concealed-weapons case, which the sheriff denied doing. Defense attorney Jimmy Judkins looked like Sheriff Andy Taylor, as he summed up his case for jurors in Floridas smallest county. There aint many of yall, but you have your own common code or beliefs. They are a lot dif ferent than in Miami-Dade County or Hillsborough County, Judkins drawled, leaning toward the rail of the jury box and peering over his glasses. Its a way of life over here for people to own guns. Theres a distinct possi bility that, every now and then, one of yall is going to make a mistake, and he (Finch) doesnt want to create a convicted fel on out of an incident that could be misunderstood. Judkins also said, The real question is, did the sheriff do anything with any wrongful purpose, or did he just decide to let go a man who wasnt bothering anybody riding down the road, just happened to have a pis tol in his pocket, wasnt bothering anybody. Whether they shared Finchs absolute belief in the Second Amendment, or believed his denial that he didnt erase or falsify the arrest records, jurors took little more than an hour to put Finch out on the courthouse steps. There, he proclaimed his continued belief that the Bill of Rights trumps state law, in these cir cumstances, along with his faith that Liberty Coun ty is aptly named. It was interesting that the state did not challenge dump the weapon charge. The legal charges against Finch were not about why he released the man, but how he went about it. Well then, what if another sheriff thinks the 0.08 blood-alcohol threshold for drunken driving is too low, and turns loose anybody who blows less than a 0.10? Thats an imprecise comparison, because the Second Amendment gives people the right to bear arms, while the 21st doesnt give us the right to bear booze, rather giving the states the power to allow it. But public employees, especially elected of sions. This is especially true in law enforcement. A Public Employees Relations Commission Swindle, who wrote nonmoving violations for state Reps. Charles McBurney, R-Jacksonville, and Mike 15 when the FHP determined that he had signed false documents a $10 proof-of-insurance ticket instead of a $250 speeding summons in each leg In fairness, it should be noted that the lawmakers didnt try to use their power to sway the trooper. They didnt have to. Swindle said he was follow ing an unwritten law in the Highway Patrol the one that says you try to give a break when the guy youve stopped votes on the agencys budget, which includes everybodys jobs. Of course, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles denied any such unwritten rule the straight-face test. Maybe decisions like Finchs or Swindles should be immune from prosecution under what we could call the Fawn Hall rule. She was the secretary to Col. Oliver North who told a congressional committee in the Iran-Contra hearings, Sometimes, one has to rise above the written law.

NOVEMBER 6, 2013 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 OUR VETERANS BY WOODY STEWART, Trustee, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 12010 Nineteen-year-old Marine Clarence King looked up from his gun turret and saw the Japanese dive bomber, bomb bay doors open and bomb in plain sight, coming straight for him. The airplane was so close that he could see the pilot wearing goggles, a white scarf, and a big grin too. This is it, he thought, Im about to die. He was a long way, half a world in fact, from his home in the tiny hamlet of Vilas, in southern Liberty County. But, just like all the other Marines and Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier Bennington that day, he was there for a purpose to defeat an Empire that had wickedly attacked the United States. Just two years before, Clarence was Times were hard all over the country but especially in the King household. Clarences father had been killed in an accident when Clarence was just ten years old. His mother had tried to eke out as a postmaster. It paid very little. Clarence dropped out of school and got a job driving a milk truck but that pay was meager too. Clarence realized his mouth was one too many for his mother to feed. He knew he had to go. At age 17 he enlisted in the Marines. Right away he began doing something he would do throughout the war. He sent his paychecks home to his mother. I really didnt need the money and Mama did, he told me. Besides, the Marine Corps made sure I got plenty to eat, clothes to wear, and a place to sleep. His initial assignment was very good duty. He was guarding the war department building in Washington, D.C. while the Pentagon was being built nearby. The hours werent bad and Washington was a sight to behold. But the numbers of wounded men returning stateside were growing as were the numbers of men being buried at sea and on foreign soil. Clarence was needed in the war zone. He chose to become a seagoing Marine and that would take him He was later informed that the ship was hit by a German torpedo and sank with all aboard. Clarence was assigned to a deck gun crew aboard the newly-christened aircraft carrier Bennington. Also aboard was a young radio operator from Mississippi named Jerry Clower. He would later become famous for his comical stories. But for now, Clarence and Jerry, and the rest of the Benningtons crew, were The Bennington would see lots of action. She was frequently the closest U. S. carrier to the Japanese mainland, a particularly precarious place to be in light of the fanatical sentiment of the Japanese military, especially toward their homeland. The Benningtons wreaked havoc on Japanese industry and ports. The Japanese tried to exact retribution. When the klaxon sounded the men had little time to get to their battle stations. Within minutes the ships watertight doors would be closed and bolted shut. They would not be opened until after the battle was over. This if she were hit. But God only knows how many men have gone to a watery grave because they didnt get topside fast enough. Clarence decided he was not going to be one of those he always slept in his uniform. The men aboard ship would often be at their battle stations for long hours. In the southern latitudes the heat was northern latitudes the air was frigid and the wind brisk. At night, the Japanese the ships, and continue their attacks. Operations continued around the clock. It was wartime, after all. The American fleet would be encircled by a Combat Air Patrol (CAP) many miles out from them. These were enemy from allied ships. Many of the enemy aircraft would be engaged at that point. Some would usually get through and continue toward their targets, After many close calls, Vilas man among the lucky ones to come home after WWII primarily the aircraft carriers. They would be met by air. Every gun on every ship would be It seems incredible that enemy aircraft could get through the tremendous wall sometimes did. The results were often catastrophic for our ships and men. Each carrier was essentially a big bomb just waiting to explode. They were loaded with ammunition, torpedoes, and tens of thousands of gallons of gasoline. A properly placed bomb or a kamikaze (suicide bomber) strike could send them all to oblivion. And now back to the Japanese dive bomber that nearly sank the Bennington. Without warning, the airplane had suddenly appeared out of some low clouds. To make matters worse, the with fully loaded and fueled bombers and torpedo aircraft, waiting to launch. But, for whatever reason, the bomb did length of the ship and was then shot down. It is highly unlikely the pilot had a change of heart. A stuck bomb release was almost certainly the problem. No matter the reason, the Bennington had skirted disaster. Had the bomb hit the ship, the Bennington and her ABOVE LEFT: Clarence King met former U.S. Senator Elizabeth Doyle in Washing al. ABOVE RIGHT: Young Marine Clarence King in 1943.

Afterward, the Captain addressed the Benningtons crew over the ships loudspeaker. Men, he told them, weve just had an extremely close call but fortune was with us. Paint a gold horseshoe on the ships bridge this will signify our good luck. After each close call the crew would add a chevron below the horseshoe. Bomber and Kamikaze attacks became routine. It was always a sort of race, a very deadly race. The gunners tried to knock down the enemy aircraft before they could hit our ships. The gunners usually succeeded but not always. Many ships were hit and sunk, including some of our carriers. Another Kamikaze came so close to hitting the Bennington that seawater from the explosion splashed up on the ship, and some of the airplanes pieces littered the By the end of the war there would be a column of them. Im reminded of another WWII veteran, Elmer OBryan, who passed away in July of 2011. He was in the Navy and crewed a deck gun aboard the heavy cruiser Pittsburgh. On several occasions he related some of his battle experiences to me. He could not recall these events without tears rolling down his cheeks. And at times he would have to stop and could not continue. Even after 60 years had passed, the memories were still too vivid and too painful. In one particular battle, his ship was attacked by Kamikaze after Kamikaze. Every gun was blazing and yet the Kamikazes kept coming. It was the stuff of nightmares. The Bennington and her crew would also do their part at Iwo Jima and Okinawa, two of the more famous battles in our nations history. But one Mother Nature. The Task Group sailed through a tremendous typhoon that sank several destroyers, along with their entire crews, and badly damaged numerous other ships. The Pittsburgh had her bow ripped completely off the had to steam backwards all the way to a friendly port for repairs. The Bennington herself didnt escape damage.The massive ship had her bow nearly crushed and she, too, had to steam away from the war zone for repairs. But it would take two atomic bombs to finally convince the Japanese, reluctantly, to give up. Two months later the Bennington was anchored in Toyko Bay, the very home of the ferocious enemy that had recently surrendered. The war had been declared over and Surrender Documents had been signed. But our men had not forgotten Pearl Harbor. Clarence King slept in his uniform. After the war Clarence returned home to Liberty County. He gained employment with the U. S. Forest Service, from which he would later retire. But he soon had his eye on a lovely young lady named Mary Fenn. She could not escape his charm. They were married for over 60 years and had three children, two boys and a girl. Sadly, his beloved Mary, his soulmate, passed away on Christmas Eve in 2008. Today Clarence King still possesses young man. The engaging smile and kind eyes are, Im sure, the same as in his youth. And hes the sort of man that, once you meet him, youll know youve made a friend. And its a rare Sunday that Clarence isnt in church at Lake Mystic Baptist. Hes also been an integral part of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Honor Guard for many years. In uniform he has attended hundreds of funerals for other veterans, often standing in the heat, the cold, the wind or rain, to give now, turning 90 years old this month, he realizes the time to retire from that is near. He lives not far from Sumatra and the trips to graveyards seem longer than they used to. His joints are a little stiffer too. Clarence King has earned a rest. Our living WWII veterans are a vanishing breed. Their average age now is 89. They fought for our country at a time when America was truly in great peril. The German military and the Imperial Japanese forces were two of the greatest war machines ever, and they were intent upon our destruction. Men like Clarence King and Elmer OBryan did not let that happen. We will forever be in their debt. BELOW: King shown sixth from left in Washington D.C.

Jorge A. Garcia (DOB 10/28/58) had been oper ating a business breeding and selling several species of monkeys. This business has been operating for seven years, said Capt. David Dipre, area investigations super visor for the FWC. We have been looking into it and were, fortunately, able to shut it down. Anyone wishing to possess, exhibit or sell monkeys in Florida must be properly licensed. This ensures that the animals are treated humanely and kept in healthy conditions, and that all humans inter acting with the animals remain safe. This business was not only selling the monkeys without a license, but sell ing them to unlicensed individuals as well, Dipre said. So, people were receiving these animals without the proper train ing and knowledge to care for them. Also, the buyers were violating the law themselves, perhaps unknowingly. Twenty-eight monkeys, as well as other wildlife, were seized and placed in licensed facilities. The people running the operation face charges of possession of wildlife without a permit, sale of wildlife without a permit, sale or transfer of wildlife to an unlicensed person, caging violations and records-keeping viola tions. These could lead to If you know of or suspect any similar viola tions, please report them to the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline by calling 888-404-3922 or texting Tip@MyFWC.com.

Green sea turtles are nesting at an unprecedented pace this year The number of green sea turtle nests in Florida this year was more than double the count of the previous high est year. Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commission (FWC) have docu mented more than 25,000 green turtle nests on 26 index beaches in the state in 2013. We are astounded and pleased by the high number of green turtle nests documented in 2013, said Dr. Blair With erington, FWC research sci entist. It looks like the years of conservation efforts for this endangered species are paying off. FWC-trained and authorized surveyors across the state monitor nests on a set of index beaches that span nearly 250 miles and are the focus of the Index Beach Nesting Survey. These surveys began in 1989. counting guidelines, making it possible for FWC researchers to use the data from these beaches to identify trends. The trend for green turtles shows an exponential increase in nesting over the past 25 years. In 1989, biologists documented only 464 green turtle nests on index beaches. In 2013, this in dex nest count was 25,553. The index count represents about 70 percent of green turtle nesting statewide. Leatherback sea turtle nest counts have also risen dra matically over the past quarter century. However, the 2013 count of 322 leatherback nests on index beaches was 193 lower than last year. Loggerhead sea turtles, the most prevalent sea turtle species on Floridas shores, accounted for 44,810 nests on index beaches this year, down from 2012s near-record count of 58,172 nests. Although this federally threatened species nests on the same beaches as green turtles and leatherbacks, loggerheads have not shown the recovery in numbers seen in nesting by the other two species. The high level of loggerhead nesting last year fol lowed a pronounced drop in the species nest counts between 1998 and 2007. Hundreds of sur veyors from conser vation organizations, universities and fed eral, state and local governments along with other volunteers make possible the extensive data col lection on Floridas nesting sea turtles. dex Nesting Beach Survey, the Statewide Nesting Beach Survey documents sea turtle nesting on nearly all sandy beaches in Florida. Data from the statewide surveys will be available in early 2014. The FWC's role in coordi nating Floridas sea turtle nest counts, training surveyors and compiling data is funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and sales of the state's sea turtle license plate. Florida residents can purchase the plate to sup port these efforts at BuyaPlate. com.

Report sick or injured sea turtles to the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922). Iamonia Lake & Lake Iamonia Youd think a name like Iamonia would be unique, yet in Florida we seem to en joy reusing even the most obscure Na tive American words. Thus, in Calhoun County, we have Iamonia Lake, which is a long, narrow lake on the west side of the Apalachicola River, just north of the Gulf County line. This is Iamonia Lake in Calhoun Coun ty. Not to be confused with Lake Iamonia in Leon County.. Over in Leon County, they have Lake Iamonia, a much bigger lake that is also more well-known. It seems like Ive spent my whole life trying to explain to folks that a) yes, I do mean Iamonia Lake; b) no, its not in Leon County; and c) yes, I realize thats a strange name to recycle. The best I can tell, after countless sec onds of Internet research, is that the name may be linked to a Seminole village called Hiamonee on the Ochlocknee River near the Georgia border. That information is courtesy of Carolee Boyles and can be found here: http://carolee-boyles.suite101. com/old-towns-and-flowered-rocksa369098 Iamonia also isnt unique among the parts of Florida. For example, both Bay and Taylor counties in the northern part in North Floridas Madison County, and another one originating in Polk County in the central part of the state. If youre looking for Dade City, dont look in Miami-Dade County. Instead, its on the western side of Florida in Pasco County. Also, be careful not to confuse Lake Okeechobee (in South Florida) with the Okefenokee Swamp near Jacksonville. And neither is anywhere near the Och loknee River just west of Tallahassee. And while were on the subject of names, I owe the following tidbit to Bill McCartney, longtime executive director Beach. According to Bill, that whole name is a lie. First of all, it was never a fort, it was a camp, Bill told me once. Sec County. And, its not on the beach, its on the bay. JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South
