NOVEMBER 27, 2013 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 The facilitys transition from a civil war era military arsenal to state hospital is represented in a series of photos now on display at Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee. ABOVE: The monument marking the entrance to the newly-restored Apalachicola Arsenal, which will serve as a conference center, and in the near future, a museum. BELOW: The restored interior showcases arches formed of brick made on the grounds in the 1830s. A valuable piece of panhandle history has been saved from obscu rity with the recent resto ration of the Apalachicola Arsenal, a former 1830sera weapons storage site on the grounds of Florida State Hospital in Chatta hoochee. An opening ceremo ny was held Nov. 20 to showcase the restored facility, which will serve as a conference center as well as a museum. Named for the nearby Apalachicola River, the Arsenal has a fascinating history, beginning with it being a true arsenal and stocked full of gunpow der and other weapon ry. It was constructed between 1832 and 1839. Earlier on, it was sometimes referred to as the Mount Vernon Arsenal after the small commu nity located nearby. The Arsenal was part of an original complex that consisted of seven buildings enclosed within a high and thick, fortress-like, rectangular wall. Through the years it saw many uses; among them mattress factory, sawmill and jail. Only two of the original buildings are still in existence the And it came to within a couple of penstrokes and some bulldozing to there being just one building left of the original seven. The Arsenal had fallen into a state of serious disrepair. The ceiling of the building had been collapsed for so long that, not only were trees growing through it, the stumps of old trees could be seen alongside them. Great consideration was given to demolishing the building. local businessmen actually moved to prevent it. In 1996, Grady Turnage and the late Jack Wingate paid then-Governor Lawton Chiles a visit. They convinced the Governor of the need to restore the historic building. He knew it would be a lengthy and expensive project but the pair convinced him that it was worthwhile. Once the state was on board, the hard work be gan. Grants were obtained and donations gathered. Local businesses contrib uted timbers, planks and plywood, and loaned out hydraulic jacks and other specialty equipment. Vol unteers pitched in. A great deal of the labor was per formed by inmates from local prisons and the state hospital itself. Many of these inmates were high ly skilled craftsmen and they poured their hearts, and backs, into the work. It was slow going and, as with most major proj ects, unexpected prob lems arose. But once the project had momentum, it would not be stopped. Dignitaries were in attendance and some lo emony, including Representative Halsey Bes hears, Representative Marti Coley and Senator Bill Montford. Some of these men and women had proven vital in getting funding for the proj quarters building is already listed in the national registry of historic buildings and, certainly, the Arsenal will soon be. The preservation process will continue. Grants are being obtained to secure a Museum Curator and furnish displays.

Crafters and artists to hold annual Marianna Marketplace on Dec. 7 MARIANNA Marianna Marketplace is the name the newly formed group of local artists and crafters held on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Madison St. Park. One of the group founders and Farmers Market par ticipant, Sally Waxgiser, says, The the idea was born out of talks with the ladies at the market on Saturdays. Pretty much all of us do other things when the farming slows down and we thought it would be nice to be able offer some of these items for sale on a regular basis. As we talked, we also exchanged information on why and how we did these crafts. Even though I will never be able to crochet like Vicki Bruner, paint a gourd like Lynn Lipford or ever do as much as Valerie Marlow, I still got a lot out of seeing and listening to them. We then thought there probably were other people in the area wanting the same thing. and Consumer Science Agent at the Jackson County Extension Service and Charlotte Bruner with Main Street Marianna, the group came together. After sev eral meetings the name, Panhandle Artists & Crafters (PAC) emerged and a plan was formed. They would set-up on a Saturday, close to Christmas, and provide a place for area residents to come, mill around, learn about people in the community and what they do. They could listen to artists and crafters as they explain what and why they do what they do and of course, purchase that one-of-a-kind gift. Marianna Marketplace will start with its Holiday Edition on Saturday, Dec. 7. There is a line-up of artists and crafters; three one-hour educational demonstrations; local 4-H members selling coffee, hot chocolate and Holiday Food demonstration (and tasting!) all while The educational portion for this event will be about Low-cost or Sustainable Decorating for the holidays.

Tiffany Nichols takes part in Agriscience Education Leadership Program CALHOUN COUNTY Calhoun County Super intendent of Schools Ralph Yoder, announced that Carr School teacher Tiffany Nichols was selected, along with 12 other educators across the State of Florida, to participate in the Department of Agricul tures Agriscience Education Leadership Program. The Agriscience Education Leadership Program is a yearlong program that will help improve agriscience curriculum in schools and provide quality agricultural education for students. The participants will travel four times throughout the year to various areas of the state to focus on di verse aspects of agriculture including forestry, fruits and vegetables, row crops, nursery and landscape, livestock, aquaculture and more. In September, the teachers toured a winery, a tree processing plant, a mushroom farm, a plant nursery, a creamery and cotton and peanut processing facilities across North Florida. Recently, the group of teachers toured agricultural businesses in South Florida, mainly around Lake Okeechobee. They visited both large agricultural operations and small farms. The tour included Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida that harvests thousands of acres of sugar cane per year, Larson's Fruits, which have a banana farm on the edge of Lake Okeechobee that is 50 ft wide and one mile long. They also visited Odom's Orchids which has several large greenhouses and a lab, but it is still a relatively small operation in the owners back yard. Many of our teachers haven't had a chance to experience the full range of Florida agriculture, said Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam. commodities we produce that help feed, clothe and shelter the world and how this industry impacts their everyday lives. The lessons they learn will be passed on to the next generation of students in their schools. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Con sumer Services' Agriscience Education Leadership Program further develops the ability of agriscience teachers, science teachers and administrators to improve the agricultural education opportunities offered to students in Florida. Educators are chal their knowledge of Florida agriculture. Additionally, this program allows participants to diversify their curriculum to include all components of agriculture, which will help lay a strong foundation for Florida's young people. Each night during the tour, the participants meet and discuss innovative teaching ideas. Each teacher participating in the program has to create a teaching resource for each portion of the tour. The resources are then shared with other teachers in the program. These resources will also be placed on the Florida Department of Agriculture website. Mrs. Nichols states, I am grateful for this op portunity provided by the Florida Department of Agriculture. The interaction with my colleagues, along with the awareness of the diversity of Floridas agriculture, is a valuable experience for me. I am hopeful that the lessons I have learned and will learn but students and teachers across the State of Florida. Image this: the person you are most thankful for is your teacher. Thats right. Who Im thankful for is my teacher Mr. Edwards because if he wouldnt be teaching I wouldnt be learning. He teaches math and science. Why you ask. To give me the education I need. That is why Mr. Edwards is the person Im thankful for. I couldnt image him not being my teacher. He is the best teacher ever. Im thankful for Mr. Edwards.

Freshman Congressman Trey Radel of Florida has been arrested for posses sion of cocaine in Washington, D.C. He admit ted he is an alcoholic and pled guilty to posses sion of cocaine. The judge sentenced him to four years as mayor of Toronto. JAY LENO Members of the tea party gathered outside the White House to demand President Obamas im peachment. The president said he appreciated their views and he is setting up a new website where they can voice their opinion. CONAN OBRIEN Thieves have stolen a half a million dollars worth of Red Bull. Theyre described as armed, dan gerous, and ready to go. DAVID LETTERMAN Hewlett-Packard, one of the worlds biggest tech companies, started in a garage. Google started in a garage. Microsoft and Apple started in a ga rage. Maybe we should be spending less money on education and more money on garages. JIMMY KIMMEL Happy Birthday to Vice President Joe Biden, who turned 71 years old today. Biden wore a party hat, carried balloons, and ate cake for lunch. So he was especially happy when they told him it was also his birthday. JIMMY FALLON To make matters worse for Mayor Ford, his re ality show was canceled after one airing. They are calling this guy the most embarrassing Ford since the Pinto. JAY LENO Everyone is talking about Torontos crack-smok ing mayor. His reality show has been canceled after one episode. That is the difference between the U.S. and Canada. In America, when some body goes off the rails we RENEW their reality show. CONAN OBRIEN The U.S. may be close to a deal with Iran. Heres how the deal would break down. They shut down their nuclear arsenal and in return the United States will shut down George Zimmerman. DAVID LETTERMAN Its been a rough couple of weeks for President Obama. Its so bad that a new poll found that Mitt Romney would beat Obama if Americans could vote for president again today. He even asked if theres any way we can have a do-over. Not Romney, Obama. JIMMY FALLON Torontos city council has voted to drastically re duce Mayor Rob Fords powers. They say this JAY LENO Last night during a TV special, magician David Blaine performed magic for Kanye West. Blaine performed an amazing trick where he got Kanye to not talk about Kanye for eight seconds. CONAN OBRIEN Its the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Ad dress. They have a guy going around the country reciting the Gettysburg Address dressed up like Lincoln. He has all of the mannerisms. He even has the golf swing. Its unbelievable. DAVID LETTERMAN We are coming to you with only two commercial breaks tonight. It will almost be like HBO, only with less nudity. JIMMY KIMMEL A company in France is selling a new robot that can play with kids and read them bedtime sto ries. Kids are calling it a cool and innovative thing to eventually discuss with their therapists. JIMMY FALLON The military justice system Military personnel have two sets of laws by which they must abide. They are subject to local, state and federal laws but also to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the UCMJ. According to the Military Legal Resources branch, Library of Congress, President Tru man signed the Uniform Code of Military Jus tice (UCMJ) into law on May 5, 1950 as Public Law 81-506. The code supersedes the Articles of War, the Articles for the Gov ernment of the Navy, and the Disciplinary laws of the Coast Guard (when it was drafted, there were no separate ar ticles governing the Air Force or Marine Corps). In reports comprising the legislative his tory of PL 81-506, the House and Senate Armed Services of the bill being reported as the existing statutes. The UCMJ even applies to retirees like me who are in the following category; .2A(4) Retired members of a regular component of the armed forces who are entitled to pay. To be successful in the military, one must un derstand that the military is not a democratic orga nization. The military is a semi-autocracy, and my of a single rulerthe Commander. However, a soldier, airman, sailor or Marine has the right to refuse an unlawful order. But the rub with that scenario iswhat and when is an order unlawful? Like in the civilian world, the military has attor neys at command levels with the UCMJ rules to sort out issues of alleged unlawful orders. The role of the commander is being questioned commanders handle allegations of sexual assault against military personnel. Because of increasing allegations of sexual as saults, two Senators have proposed changes to the military command structure. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) wants to completely eliminate the commander from any in volvement in resolving a sexual allegation. Turn the process over to lawyers. The reason for Gilli brands decision is that a three-star Air Force gen eral reversed a decision on a sexual assault case. The liberal media went nuts. How could this hap pen? Commanders cant be trusted. As usual, the news media displayed its consider able ignorance of the military command structure. the commanders role and responsibilities very well. The three-star didnt reverse the alleged sex ual assault decision on a whim. Ill bet my truck that she did what all of com to your Staff Judge Advocate, your staff attorney, and ask for an opinion. Ill bet my car that on ad vice of council she reversed the decision in this case. Did the news media ever ask the three-star how she came to her decision? Dont think so. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) has an op posing view. McCaskill wants to strengthen the role of the prosecutor and the commander. Im opposed to Senator Gillibrands proposal and support Senator McCaskills approach; both senators are displaying their lack of understand ing of how the command structure deals with, or should deal with adverse situations. Commanders do not make decisions about issues like sexual assault in a vacuum. assist us and provide advice. When an alleged assault has occurred, the following should happen. Normally, the complaint geant in a squadron or compa ny. The squadron or company victim is sent to the hospital to take care of any injuries. If the allegation is rape, then rape kit procedures must be accomplished. his commanders which are the wing commander or battalion commander in the Army. As senior commanders, it is our responsibility to ensure that the victim has received medical care, if required, and reassurances that she will be pro tected and the culprits, if guilty, will get to know the UCMJ up close and personal. I would then inform my commander, normally a three-star. Then I would direct that the allegation be investigated. Not by the victims supervisor or immediate commander. In the Air Force, an inde Investigations (AFOSI) would be tasked to inves tigate the allegation. To investigate the allegation, an Army com mander would call on the Armys Criminal Inves tigations Division (CID) and a Navy commander would engage the Naval Criminal Investigations Service (NCIS), both of which are independent or ganizations. I would direct my Staff Judge Advocate, my lawyer, to work with the AFOSI to investigate the case. This is the military version of the civilian police department working a case with the citys Prosecuting Attorney. When the investigation is complete, I would review the report and agree with or disagree with the conclusions. Disagreement is extremely rare. I would then inform my commander of the results of the investigation. The Staff Judge Advocate sys tem also reviews the decisions of the case. If commanders are doing their job then there shouldnt be an issue about meting out UCMJ jus tice. If, as alleged by a number of alleged victims, they are harassed for reporting sexual assaults, then live up to their command responsibilities which is commander who fails to properly handle an allega tion of sexual assault.

CORLETTS ROOFING LLC FREE ESTIMATES Michael Corlett (850) 643-7062 The weekend before Veter ans Day, I was drinking a cup of coffee and browsing through some old pictures when I found one of my grandfather in his Army uniform from about 1918. I smiled when I saw it because a) Daddy Mac was the man who introduced me to coffee before I could walk and b) the Army was, oddly enough, the only place where my love of it ever caused me any problems. It happened when I arrived for boot camp at Ft. Jackson, prepared for the ordeal because I was older than most of the recruits, in pretty good shape and Id been yelled at enough that the drill sergeants didnt worry me much. Plus, a couple of friends assured me that the worst part of it was just being there. As it happens, they were hor ribly wrong. The worst part by a long shot was when I found out coffee wasnt part of a new recruits meal plan. Just 10 years before, they were putting cigarettes in Crations. But when I get there, they suddenly decide coffee is no good. Classic Army logic: Gassing the recruits ens sake, dont let them have caffeine. In my mind, not having coffee wasnt just bad, it was downright cruel. So, I decided to do something about it as soon as I got the chance. Luckily, it didnt take long. A drill sergeant came out of the private dining area one morning to give us our daily, ear-splitting order to clear out of the chow hall. As he did, I noticed he was holding a pip ing hot cup of coffee. I knew it had to have come from inside that very building, so while he was screaming and making apelike gestures at my buddies, I slipped back behind the wall that separated the cad re from the recruits. Jackpot. There, in a little alcove hid den from the trainees, was a gi the substance that would make my next eight weeks much more tolerable. From then on, all I had to do was walk past the end of the chow line, turn down. There was some experimen tation involved. For instance, I had to put enough milk in the cup to cool it down so I could drink in a hurry. I didnt have time to put sugar in it, and I had to use a tumbler rather than a cup. Also, I had to make sure I accounted for all the drill ser geants. That last part I learned the hard way when the surliest ser geant in the bunch caught me red-handed one morning. Private, do you really think the Army put that coffee here for you? he growled from be hind me. He was so close that I could feel the words coming off his lips. I wanted to say, No, I think God put it here for me and you were hiding it. But bet ter judgment caused me to simply look him in the eyes and answer, Yes, ser geant. To my surprise, he chuckled and said, You better drink it in a damn hurry, boy. Nothing else was ever said about it until a few My company was getting ready to qualify with our M-16s. On range days, wed have break I only had MRE coffee and that was if there was any hot water available. As I was sitting there with my M much force it takes to break a dehydrated pork patty, I heard a familiar voice yell, Private! About forty of us jumped up, but I saw the drill sergeant was pointing at me. You, come here. I scrambled over and noticed he was holding two cups. He handed me one and said, Here, I dont want you screwing up your score because you didnt have any coffee this morning. A few years later, I was a pla toon leader and our company breakfast scheduled, but when it arrived, there was no coffee. The chow hall was out, I was told. That was a disaster in the making, but I knew what to do. My platoon sergeant and I drove back on post to talk the mess cook into giving us cof fee for 50 soldiers. But no mat ter how nicely I asked or how much I pleaded, he said we got on on his schedule late and he didnt have enough to spare. I didnt give up, though. I kept talking because I knew what a difference a cup of cof fee could make for morale. I kept talking because I knew my guys expected me to take care of them. Most of all, I kept talking be cause I could see my platoon sergeant sneaking canisters of fresh, hot coffee out the back door and onto our truck.

Pilgrims and Indians ate in the street because there wasnt a house SARAH KERN The Pilgrims called Thanksgiving the Harvest Festival because when it was time for the Harvest Festival they had good food. The kids were the only ones who had to do the work because there was only a few women there. When it was supper time the kids had to stand up and the adults had to sit at the table outside because they didnt have room for so many people in each house where people usually eat at. They had to eat outside on the street. P.J. BOUTWELL The Pilgrims served turkey stuffed with pudding in the belly which is now tasted deer because in England only rich people had forest to hunt deer.

Page 14 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 27, 2013 I was at the corner grocery store buying some early potatoes. I noticed a small boy, delicate of bone and feature, ragged but clean, hungrily ap prising a basket of freshly picked green peas. I paid for my potatoes but was also drawn to the display of fresh green peas. I am a pushover for creamed peas and new potatoes. Pondering the peas, I couldnt help overhearing the conversa tion between Mr. Smith (the store owner) and the ragged boy next to me. Hello Barry, how are you today? Hlo, Mr. Smith. Fine, thank ya. Jus admirin them peas. They sure look good. They are good, Barry. Hows your Ma? Fine. Gittin stronger alla time.. Good... Anything I can help you with? No, Sir. Jus admirin them peas.. Would you like to take some home? asked Mr. Smith. No, Sir. Got nuthin to pay for em with. Well, what have you to trade me for some of those peas? All I gots my prize marble here. Is that right? Let me see it, said Smith. Here tis. Shes a dandy. I can see that. Hmm mmm, only thing is this one is blue and I sort of go for red. Do you have a red one like this at home? the store owner asked. Not zackley but almost. Tell you what. Take this sack of peas home with you and next trip this way let me look at that red marble, Mr. Smith told the boy. Sure will. Thanks Mr. Smith. Mrs. Smith, who had been standing nearby, came over to help me. With a smile she said, There are two other boys like him in our commu nity, all three are in very poor circumstances. Jim just loves to bargain with them for peas, apples, tomatoes, or whatever. When they come back with their red marbles, and they always do, he decides he doesnt like red after all and he sends them home with a bag of produce for a green marble or an orange one, when they come on their next trip to the store. I left the store smiling to myself, impressed with this man. A short time later I moved to Colorado but I never forgot the story of this man, the boys, and their bartering for marbles. Several years went by, each more rapid than the previous one. Just recently I had occasion to vis it some old friends in that Idaho community and while I was there learned that Mr. Smith had died. They were having his visitation that evening and knowing my friends wanted to go, I agreed to ac company them. Upon arrival at the mortuary we fell into line to meet the relatives of the deceased and to offer whatever words of comfort we could. Ahead of us in line were three young men. One was in an army uniform and the other two wore nice haircuts, dark suits and white shirts...all very professional looking. They approached Mrs. Smith, standing composed and smiling by her husbands casket. Each of the young men hugged her, kissed her and moved on to the casket. Her misty light blue eyes followed them as, one by one, own warm hand over the cold pale hand in the casket. Each left the mortuary awkwardly, wiping his eyes. Our turn came to meet Mrs. Smith. I told her who I was and reminded her of the story from those many years ago and what she had told me about her husbands bartering for marbles. With her eyes glistening, she took my hand and led me to the casket. Those three young men who just left were the boys I told you about. They just told me how they appreciated the things Jim traded them. Now, at last, when Jim could not change his mind about color or size.....they came to pay their debt. Weve never had a great deal of the wealth would consider himself the richest man in Idaho. gers of her deceased husband. Resting under neath were three exquisitely shined red marbles. The Moral: We will not be remembered by our words, but by our kind deeds. Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath. Today I wish you a day of ordinary miracles A fresh pot of coffee you didnt make yourself..... An unexpected phone call from an old friend .... ITS AN HONOR TO SERVE YOU. We consider it an honor to serve you and we are very thankful. May God bless you and this one nation under God.

She helps me in math, science, and reading. She has to work all day and sometimes we get her mad. Ms. Cassie calls us one big happy family. Science is hard for me. Ms. Cassie will help me. She cares about her scholars and she lets us have pizza parties. She is very nice. Im glad I am in this class with Ms. Cassie. She is gonna help me get to 5th grade. She has taught me well. That is who Im most thankful for Ms. Cassie the best teacher in the world. OSVALDO I am the most thank ful for my family. In my family I have my brother, sister, mom, and dad. I am thankful for them because they help me. One time my family helped me make a tire swing. My family makes me feel happy. ERIK CASTRO Do you have some thing you are thankful for? I do. Im thankful for my dad because he works by building hotels outside in Tallahassee. He gets a lot of money every Friday. He pays the bills. He works at 6:00 octock to 8:00 octock in the afternoon. Now you know who Im thankful for. I feel so happy for myself. JOSE What are you Thankful for? The kids in Cassie Hobbys fourth grade class at Tolar School tell us whats important to them at this special time of the year. The thing that Im most thankful for is my friends. Some of my buddies are Anabella, Tori, Jazin, and Haley. These are only some of my friends, not all of them. We all met at the beginning of the school year and we sometimes have problems like when Haley was feeling sad when Austin was making fun of her because of be ing short and I told her to just ignore him because he doesnt know that she is special like all of my friends that I have! We live in Bristol, FL and go to W.R. Tolar School and have fun there. My friends are the best things I have (after Jesus and my par ents) and we will always be stuck together forever and ever! SOPHIA MATOS The most thing I am thankful for is my teacher Ms. Cassie. She is the greatest teacher because she is awsome and funny. The reason she is aw some is because she gives the people who the work and some times the work is hard, but it is easy for me to do because I already know it by looking at it. The other reason is Ms. Cassie is funny. She is funny because yesterday Austin helped Olvaldo make the teacher dance to the Harlam Shake. That was funny. I will feel great if anybody reads my paper. ANTONIO I am most thankful for my family. My brother is and plays two sports, basketball and football. For Thanksgiving we go to our Auntie Bettys house. One time my brother was eating his favorite food, mack in cheese, and my cousin Ashton threw a shoe in his food he started crying. I almost did too time seeing him cry. But then I started laughing and almost fell down the stairs but it was funny. When he got a new plate we all sat down and said what we were thankful for and ate then we heded home. I was so happy. I got to spend time with my family. SHEFFIELD SMITH I am most thankful for my food because it keeps me alive. When I stayed with my papa we thanked him for the food. I was so happy. I was thankful for my food. HALEY PARKER I am thankful to have a bible so I can read Gods word. My bible has my dads name in golden ink and gots pictuers in it of places in the bible and how they look today. It has a blue cover that is riped on the sides of the bible so you can tell it is old. I read my bible evry day in my room on my bed. It used to be my dads bible before he got very sick. My bible means a lot to me for that reason. Thats why it makes me happy and peaceful when I read it. JOSHUA E. TODD Everyone has some thing they are thankfull for. I am thankfull for my famly because one year we went to Disney World and stayed for a whole week. It was me, my momma, my Aunt Cyntha, my granny and pa, my Aunt Jessica, my cousins Katlyn and Corthy, and my sister Gra cie. When it was time to leave I felt realy realy sad. Even though my cousins am thankful I got to go to Disney World. KALEB The thing that Im most thankful for is a family and cousins. The reason Im thankful for my family is that they take me to stores, restraunts and all that. Along time ago when I was four my whole family would go outside with me and throw the baseball and the football. It would be so fun that when we were done we would go to the Mexican restraunt. My family makes me feel really excited almost ev ery day. COLETON The most think that Im thankful for is my family. Im thankful for my family because all the grownups feed me, my brother, sis ter and my cousins. The grownups are the most important. They buy us everything. They buy us clothes, food and toys. Thats why you have to be thankful for what grown ups give you and others. My family is the best thing that ever happed to me. If it wasnt for my family I wouldnt be here right now. They buy me clothes, food and toys. You just have to be thankful for what you get and what you have. Some people in my family is my mom, dad, sister, brother, cousins, aunts, and uncles. We all injoy being together. They are the best family I have ever had. I like to be at my house with my family because thats where we do everything. Is your family the most thankful thing you ever had? JAZMIN I am the most thankful for my fameily and are wild adventures. Starting with my mini story. I was to us and said put your hands up and shackum all around. We laught. After that me and my fameily discuss that were going to a lake next week because theres no crazy popo there. I love Thanksgiving. AUSTIN I am the most thankful for my parents because they will talk to me if I need help. This one time when I needed to talk to some body about my feelings they told me to sit on the bed and they would talk to me. Then they came in the room and sat down and we talked about my feelings. That is why I am thankful for my parents. TRENTON PETERSON Im the most thankful for my family. Because we always have time to gether. I remember when we played soccer. It was me, my sis Taylor, and my mommy on one team. Then on the other team it was Trenton my brother, Tyler, also my brother, and my daddy. The girls started out winning but then the boys got cought up. The worst thang was we had to quit the game because daddy stepped on my foot. But that was still the best day. And thats why Im thankful for my family. Im such a lucky little girl. TORI PETERSON So Thanksgiving is a time to say what you are most thankful for. I am most thankful for family and friends. One reson why my family and friends are most inportent to me is my family watch over me, feed me, my BFFs are forgiving. I remember when me and my family was on a trip. I seen one of my BFFs. It was Stace Hall. She live in Kentuky. I asked why are you in Atlanta? Stace said she at a family vacation. I said I am to! Stace asked do you want to play. Sure I said exciteatly. I had a great time with my family and my BFF. AMARIAH CARTER What I am thankful for is to have my mom and my brother. I spend a lot of time at the house or even in the yard. But the main thing I do with my family is watch movies. One time I was going movie shopping and my mom picked out The Lo rax which is an awsome movie that I can watch over an over again. We also color together with lots of crayons on Christ mas colorin books. It is fun and special. JOVAH ANDERSON Since 1993, Big Bend Hospices Tree of Remem brance has been a special holiday tradition which allows people in the community to honor their loved ones and help Big Bend Hospice raise money for patient care. A gift to the Tree of Remembrance provides a wonderful alternative to traditional holiday gifts. The Tree provides a time to remember and celebrate the lives of those we love. It also helps Big Bend Hospice provide care, comfort and hope to those who are dying. A Tree of Remembrance is set up each year at the Apalachee Restaurant in Bristol. Trees of Remembrance in the surrounding counties will be open beginning Sunday, Dec. 1. Please check the Big Bend Hospice Web Site for locations. The Tree of Remembrance Kiosk for Leon County will be located in the Sears Wing, lower level, at Governors Square Mall through Dec. 23. This year, in addition to the traditional three levels of giving; angels ($50), bells ($25) and bows ($10); patrons who make a donation of $250 or more will receive a limited edition Wedgewood ornament, along with a beautiful ornament of their choosing placed on a Tree of Remembrance at the location they specify. Tree of Remembrance now a holiday tradition

NOVEMBER 27, 2013 / THE CALHOUN-LIBER TY JOURNAL Page 3 The facilitys transition from a civil war era military arsenal to state hospital is represented in a series of photos now on display at Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee. ABOVE: The monument marking the entrance to the newly-restored Apalachicola Arsenal, which will serve as a conference center, and in the near future, a museum. BELOW: The restored interior showcases arches formed of brick made on the grounds in the 1830s.A valuable piece of panhandle history has been saved from obscu rity with the recent restoration of the Apalachicola Arsenal, a former 1830sera weapons storage site on the grounds of Florida State Hospital in Chatta hoochee. An opening ceremo ny was held Nov. 20 to showcase the restored facility, which will serve as a conference center as well as a museum. Named for the nearby Apalachicola River, the Arsenal has a fascinating history, beginning with it being a true arsenal and stocked full of gunpowder and other weaponry. It was constructed between 1832 and 1839. Earlier on, it was sometimes referred to as the Mount Vernon Arsenal after the small community located nearby. The Arsenal was part of an original complex that consisted of seven buildings enclosed within a high and thick, fortress-like, rectangular wall. Through the years it saw many uses; among them mattress factory, sawmill and jail. Only two of the original buildings are still in existence the And it came to within a couple of penstrokes and some bulldozing to there being just one building left of the original seven. The Arsenal had fallen into a state of serious disrepair. The ceiling of the building had been collapsed for so long that, not only were trees growing through it, the stumps of old trees could be seen alongside them. Great consideration was given to demolishing the building. local businessmen actually moved to prevent it. In 1996, Grady Turnage and the late Jack Wingate paid then-Governor Lawton Chiles a visit. They convinced the Governor of the need to restore the historic building. He knew it would be a lengthy and expensive project but the pair convinced him that it was worthwhile. Once the state was on board, the hard work be gan. Grants were obtained and donations gathered. Local businesses contributed timbers, planks and plywood, and loaned out hydraulic jacks and other specialty equipment. Volunteers pitched in. A great deal of the labor was per formed by inmates from local prisons and the state hospital itself. Many of these inmates were highly skilled craftsmen and they poured their hearts, and backs, into the work. It was slow going and, as with most major projects, unexpected problems arose. But once the project had momentum, it would not be stopped. Dignitaries were in attendance and some lo emony, including Representative Halsey Bes hears, Representative Marti Coley and Senator Bill Montford. Some of these men and women had proven vital in getting funding for the proj quarters building is already listed in the national registry of historic buildings and, certainly, the Arsenal will soon be. The preservation process will continue. Grants are being obtained to secure a Museum Curator and furnish displays.

Crafters and artists to hold annual Marianna Marketplace on Dec. 7 MARIANNA Marianna Marketplace is the name the newly formed group of local artists and crafters held on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Madison St. Park. One of the group founders and Farmers Market par ticipant, Sally Waxgiser, says, The the idea was born out of talks with the ladies at the market on Saturdays. Pretty much all of us do other things when the farming slows down and we thought it would be nice to be able offer some of these items for sale on a regular basis. As we talked, we also exchanged information on why and how we did these crafts. Even though I will never be able to crochet like Vicki Bruner, paint a gourd like Lynn Lipford or ever do as much as Valerie Marlow, I still got a lot out of seeing and listening to them. We then thought there probably were other people in the area wanting the same thing. and Consumer Science Agent at the Jackson County Extension Service and Charlotte Bruner with Main Street Marianna, the group came together. After sev eral meetings the name, Panhandle Artists & Crafters (PAC) emerged and a plan was formed. They would set-up on a Saturday, close to Christmas, and provide a place for area residents to come, mill around, learn about people in the community and what they do. They could listen to artists and crafters as they explain what and why they do what they do and of course, purchase that one-of-a-kind gift. Marianna Marketplace will start with its Holiday Edition on Saturday, Dec. 7. There is a line-up of artists and crafters; three one-hour educational demonstrations; local 4-H members selling coffee, hot chocolate and Holiday Food demonstration (and tasting!) all while The educational portion for this event will be about Low-cost or Sustainable Decorating for the holidays. It is all about using the bounty of nature and bringing the outdoors in. The classes will be 10 a.m. (wreath making), 12 p.m. (table decorations) and 2 p.m. (tree decorations to make with kids). The group plans to make this a quarterly event with each quarters educational part representing the time of year.

Tiffany Nichols takes part in Agriscience Education Leadership ProgramCALHOUN COUNTY Calhoun County Super intendent of Schools Ralph Yoder, announced that Carr School teacher Tiffany Nichols was selected, along with 12 other educators across the State of Florida, to participate in the Department of Agricul tures Agriscience Education Leadership Program. The Agriscience Education Leadership Program is a yearlong program that will help improve agriscience curriculum in schools and provide quality agricultural education for students. The participants will travel four times throughout the year to various areas of the state to focus on di verse aspects of agriculture including forestry, fruits and vegetables, row crops, nursery and landscape, livestock, aquaculture and more. In September, the teachers toured a winery, a tree processing plant, a mushroom farm, a plant nursery, a creamery and cotton and peanut processing facilities across North Florida. Recently, the group of teachers toured agricultural businesses in South Florida, mainly around Lake Okeechobee. They visited both large agricultural operations and small farms. The tour included Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida that harvests thousands of acres of sugar cane per year, Larson's Fruits, which have a banana farm on the edge of Lake Okeechobee that is 50 ft wide and one mile long. They also visited Odom's Orchids which has several large greenhouses and a lab, but it is still a relatively small operation in the owners back yard. Many of our teachers haven't had a chance to experience the full range of Florida agriculture, said Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam. commodities we produce that help feed, clothe and shelter the world and how this industry impacts their everyday lives. The lessons they learn will be passed on to the next generation of students in their schools. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Con sumer Services' Agriscience Education Leadership Program further develops the ability of agriscience teachers, science teachers and administrators to improve the agricultural education opportunities offered to students in Florida. Educators are chal their knowledge of Florida agriculture. Additionally, this program allows participants to diversify their curriculum to include all components of agriculture, which will help lay a strong foundation for Florida's young people. Each night during the tour, the participants meet and discuss innovative teaching ideas. Each teacher participating in the program has to create a teaching resource for each portion of the tour. The resources are then shared with other teachers in the program. These resources will also be placed on the Florida Department of Agriculture website. Mrs. Nichols states, I am grateful for this opportunity provided by the Florida Department of Agriculture. The interaction with my colleagues, along with the awareness of the diversity of Floridas agriculture, is a valuable experience for me. I am hopeful that the lessons I have learned and will learn but students and teachers across the State of Florida. Image this: the person you are most thankful for is your teacher. Thats right. Who Im thankful for is my teacher Mr. Edwards because if he wouldnt be teaching I wouldnt be learning. He teaches math and science. Why you ask. To give me the education I need. That is why Mr. Edwards is the person Im thankful for. I couldnt image him not being my teacher. He is the best teacher ever. Im thankful for Mr. Edwards.

JIMMY KIMMELA company in France is selling a new robot that can play with kids and read them bedtime stories. Kids are calling it a cool and innovative thing to eventually discuss with their therapists. JIMMY FALLON The military justice systemMilitary personnel have two sets of laws by which they must abide. They are subject to local, state and federal laws but also to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the UCMJ. According to the Military Legal Resources branch, Library of Congress, President Truman signed the Uniform Code of Military Jus tice (UCMJ) into law on May 5, 1950 as Public Law 81-506. The code supersedes the Articles of War, the Articles for the Gov ernment of the Navy, and the Disciplinary laws of the Coast Guard (when it was drafted, there were no separate ar ticles governing the Air Force or Marine Corps). In reports comprising the legislative his tory of PL 81-506, the House and Senate Armed Services of the bill being reported as the existing statutes. The UCMJ even applies to retirees like me who are in the following category; .2A(4) Retired members of a regular component of the armed forces who are entitled to pay. To be successful in the military, one must un derstand that the military is not a democratic organization. The military is a semi-autocracy, and my of a single rulerthe Commander. However, a soldier, airman, sailor or Marine has the right to refuse an unlawful order. But the rub with that scenario iswhat and when is an order unlawful? Like in the civilian world, the military has attor neys at command levels with the UCMJ rules to sort out issues of alleged unlawful orders. The role of the commander is being questioned commanders handle allegations of sexual assault against military personnel. Because of increasing allegations of sexual as saults, two Senators have proposed changes to the military command structure. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) wants to completely eliminate the commander from any in volvement in resolving a sexual allegation. Turn the process over to lawyers. The reason for Gillibrands decision is that a three-star Air Force gen eral reversed a decision on a sexual assault case. The liberal media went nuts. How could this hap pen? Commanders cant be trusted. As usual, the news media displayed its consider able ignorance of the military command structure. the commanders role and responsibilities very well. The three-star didnt reverse the alleged sex ual assault decision on a whim. Ill bet my truck that she did what all of com to your Staff Judge Advocate, your staff attorney, and ask for an opinion. Ill bet my car that on ad vice of council she reversed the decision in this case. Did the news media ever ask the three-star how she came to her decision? Dont think so. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) has an op posing view. McCaskill wants to strengthen the role of the prosecutor and the commander. Im opposed to Senator Gillibrands proposal and support Senator McCaskills approach; both senators are displaying their lack of understanding of how the command structure deals with, or should deal with adverse situations. Commanders do not make decisions about issues like sexual assault in a vacuum. assist us and provide advice. When an alleged assault has occurred, the following should happen. Normally, the complaint geant in a squadron or compa ny. The squadron or company victim is sent to the hospital to take care of any injuries. If the allegation is rape, then rape kit procedures must be accomplished. his commanders which are the wing commander or battalion commander in the Army. As senior commanders, it is our responsibility to ensure that the victim has received medical care, if required, and reassurances that she will be pro tected and the culprits, if guilty, will get to know the UCMJ up close and personal. I would then inform my commander, normally a three-star. Then I would direct that the allegation be investigated. Not by the victims supervisor or immediate commander. In the Air Force, an inde Investigations (AFOSI) would be tasked to inves tigate the allegation. To investigate the allegation, an Army com mander would call on the Armys Criminal Investigations Division (CID) and a Navy commander would engage the Naval Criminal Investigations Service (NCIS), both of which are independent or ganizations. I would direct my Staff Judge Advocate, my lawyer, to work with the AFOSI to investigate the case. This is the military version of the civilian police department working a case with the citys Prosecuting Attorney. When the investigation is complete, I would review the report and agree with or disagree with the conclusions. Disagreement is extremely rare. I would then inform my commander of the results of the investigation. The Staff Judge Advocate sys tem also reviews the decisions of the case. If commanders are doing their job then there shouldnt be an issue about meting out UCMJ jus tice. If, as alleged by a number of alleged victims, they are harassed for reporting sexual assaults, then live up to their command responsibilities which is commander who fails to properly handle an allega tion of sexual assault.

CORLETTS ROOFING LLC LR FREE EESTIMATES Michael Corlett (850) 643-7062 The weekend before Veter ans Day, I was drinking a cup of coffee and browsing through some old pictures when I found one of my grandfather in his Army uniform from about 1918. I smiled when I saw it because a) Daddy Mac was the man who introduced me to coffee before I could walk and b) the Army was, oddly enough, the only place where my love of it ever caused me any problems. It happened when I arrived for boot camp at Ft. Jackson, prepared for the ordeal because I was older than most of the recruits, in pretty good shape and Id been yelled at enough that the drill sergeants didnt worry me much. Plus, a couple of friends assured me that the worst part of it was just being there. As it happens, they were hor ribly wrong. The worst part by a long shot was when I found out coffee wasnt part of a new recruits meal plan. Just 10 years before, they were putting cigarettes in Crations. But when I get there, they suddenly decide coffee is no good. Classic Army logic: Gassing the recruits ens sake, dont let them have caffeine. In my mind, not having coffee wasnt just bad, it was downright cruel. So, I decided to do something about it as soon as I got the chance. Luckily, it didnt take long. A drill sergeant came out of the private dining area one morning to give us our daily, ear-splitting order to clear out of the chow hall. As he did, I noticed he was holding a piping hot cup of coffee. I knew it had to have come from inside that very building, so while he was screaming and making apelike gestures at my buddies, I slipped back behind the wall that separated the cad re from the recruits. Jackpot. There, in a little alcove hidden from the trainees, was a githe substance that would make my next eight weeks much more tolerable. From then on, all I had to do was walk past the end of the chow line, turn down. There was some experimen tation involved. For instance, I had to put enough milk in the cup to cool it down so I could drink in a hurry. I didnt have time to put sugar in it, and I had to use a tumbler rather than a cup. Also, I had to make sure I accounted for all the drill ser geants. That last part I learned the hard way when the surliest ser geant in the bunch caught me red-handed one morning. Private, do you really think the Army put that coffee here for you? he growled from be hind me. He was so close that I could feel the words coming off his lips. I wanted to say, No, I think God put it here for me and you were hiding it. But bet ter judgment caused me to simply look him in the eyes and answer, Yes, ser geant. To my surprise, he chuckled and said, You better drink it in a damn hurry, boy. Nothing else was ever said about it until a few My company was getting ready to qualify with our M-16s. On range days, wed have break I only had MRE coffee and that was if there was any hot water available. As I was sitting there with my M much force it takes to break a dehydrated pork patty, I heard a familiar voice yell, Private! About forty of us jumped up, but I saw the drill sergeant was pointing at me. You, come here. I scrambled over and noticed he was holding two cups. He handed me one and said, Here, I dont want you screwing up your score because you didnt have any coffee this morning. A few years later, I was a pla toon leader and our company breakfast scheduled, but when it arrived, there was no coffee. The chow hall was out, I was told. That was a disaster in the making, but I knew what to do. My platoon sergeant and I drove back on post to talk the mess cook into giving us coffee for 50 soldiers. But no matter how nicely I asked or how much I pleaded, he said we got on on his schedule late and he didnt have enough to spare. I didnt give up, though. I kept talking because I knew what a difference a cup of cof fee could make for morale. I kept talking because I knew my guys expected me to take care of them. Most of all, I kept talking be cause I could see my platoon sergeant sneaking canisters of fresh, hot coffee out the back door and onto our truck.

To the Pilgrims it was a Harvest Festival. But there was still lots of food. They ate things like deer, cornbread, vegetables, and stuffed turkey. in the Belly. Pilgrims and Indians ate in the street because there wasnt a house SARAH KERNThe Pilgrims called Thanksgiving the Harvest Festival because when it was time for the Harvest Festival they had good food. The kids were the only ones who had to do the work because there was only a few women there. When it was supper time the kids had to stand up and the adults had to sit at the table outside because they didnt have room for so many people in each house where people usually eat at. They had to eat outside on the street. P.J. BOUTWELLThe Pilgrims served turkey stuffed with pudding in the belly which is now tasted deer because in England only rich people had forest to hunt deer. The Pilgrims couldnt make cranberry sauce because they had no sugar. DEVIN DAIGLEWhat they cooked was unusual to me. They cooked roasted eel and turkey stuffed what the Pilgrims called pudding in the belly. When the Pilgrims ate they had to sit on the street because they all ROSITA ESCANDON the Pilgrims call it pudding in the belly. The Pilgrims couldnt have deer back in England because the deer was for rich people because the rich people own the deer in the forest. The Indians brought the pilgrims some deer to eat and the Pilgrims enjoyed the deer. JARIAN C. MOSLEY Thanksgiving. These are some interest ing things we learned. When the harvest festival was coming the 52 Pilgrims started working. Their children had to do a lot of work. They cooked and even served dinner to the adults. They worked very hard so when they got done serving they would dig in but they would have to stand while the adults sat and ate. ALYSSA SAPPWe learned that the Pilgrims decided to celebrate for all their hard work by having a Harvest Festival. We also learned about the food the Pilgrims ate. They ate stewed eels, sea bass, geese, ducks, swans, and turkey. Another thing I learned was that the kids had to serve the food because there was only a few adults. JAZLYNN MCCRAY Thanksgiving. The Harvest Festival all started in 1621. The Pilgrims had eels, Students in Fran Cutshaws Fourth Grade Class at Tolar School share some interesting facts aboutTHE VERY FIRST THANKS GIVINGducks, geese, and 5 deer because in England rich people had their own forest that had deer in the forest. They had to sit on barrels and made their tables out of boards and little boxes. JACOB NELSONThe Harvest Festival all started in 1621 that was a long time ago. The Pilgrims ate eel and deer meat. They could not eat their pigs because they was raising a bigger herd. They ate in the middle of the street like they did in England. They could not make cranberry sauce because they did not have any sugar. MALIKK EVERETTThis article is to share facts about the only a little bit of adults because a lots of them died. The kids had to do most of the work. The kids couldnt sit down at the table when they eat. They could not eat before they served the food. ANA VILLANUEVA Harvest Festival because Pilgrims did not know it was called Thanksgiving. If you said Happy Thanksgiving the Pilgrims will have no clue what you meant. They ate duck, eel, and deer. The Indians brought the deer to the Pilgrims. The Pilgrims had never taste deer before so it was new to them. ALEXIS PORTEE the Harvest Festival. They had the Har vest Festival because they were hungry. The food they had to eat before the fes tival was old and moldy. At the festival they had fresh meat and vegetables. JAMISON MALOY Thanksgiving. They made the children cook the food and serve it. They couldnt sit down when they ate. The house was to small so they ate in the middle of the street.

Coach Jor dan added he was impressed with the play of his defense, St. Joe has great speed and skill players and our defense played lights out to limit them to under 20 yards of total offense. That is an unbelievable feat. If we continue to be physical and dominate the line of scrimmage, limit our penalties and not turn the ball over I like our chances to continue to move forward.

Page 14 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 27, 2013 I was at the corner grocery store buying some early potatoes. I noticed a small boy, delicate of bone and feature, ragged but clean, hungrily ap prising a basket of freshly picked green peas. I paid for my potatoes but was also drawn to the display of fresh green peas. I am a pushover for creamed peas and new potatoes. Pondering the peas, I couldnt help overhearing the conversa tion between Mr. Smith (the store owner) and the ragged boy next to me. Hello Barry, how are you today? Hlo, Mr. Smith. Fine, thank ya. Jus admirin them peas. They sure look good. They are good, Barry. Hows your Ma? Fine. Gittin stronger alla time.. Good... Anything I can help you with? No, Sir. Jus admirin them peas.. Would you like to take some home? asked Mr. Smith. No, Sir. Got nuthin to pay for em with. Well, what have you to trade me for some of those peas? All I gots my prize marble here. Is that right? Let me see it, said Smith. Here tis. Shes a dandy. I can see that. Hmm mmm, only thing is this one is blue and I sort of go for red. Do you have a red one like this at home? the store owner asked. Not zackley but almost. Tell you what. Take this sack of peas home with you and next trip this way let me look at that red marble, Mr. Smith told the boy. Sure will. Thanks Mr. Smith. Mrs. Smith, who had been standing nearby, came over to help me. With a smile she said, There are two other boys like him in our commu nity, all three are in very poor circumstances. Jim just loves to bargain with them for peas, apples, tomatoes, or whatever. When they come back with their red marbles, and they always do, he decides he doesnt like red after all and he sends them home with a bag of produce for a green marble or an orange one, when they come on their next trip to the store. I left the store smiling to myself, impressed with this man. A short time later I moved to Colorado but I never forgot the story of this man, the boys, and their bartering for marbles. Several years went by, each more rapid than the previous one. Just recently I had occasion to visit some old friends in that Idaho community and while I was there learned that Mr. Smith had died. They were having his visitation that evening and knowing my friends wanted to go, I agreed to ac company them. Upon arrival at the mortuary we fell into line to meet the relatives of the deceased and to offer whatever words of comfort we could. Ahead of us in line were three young men. One was in an army uniform and the other two wore nice haircuts, dark suits and white shirts...all very professional looking. They approached Mrs. Smith, standing composed and smiling by her husbands casket. Each of the young men hugged her, kissed her and moved on to the casket. Her misty light blue eyes followed them as, one by one, own warm hand over the cold pale hand in the casket. Each left the mortuary awkwardly, wiping his eyes. Our turn came to meet Mrs. Smith. I told her who I was and reminded her of the story from those many years ago and what she had told me about her husbands bartering for marbles. With her eyes glistening, she took my hand and led me to the casket. Those three young men who just left were the boys I told you about. They just told me how they appreciated the things Jim traded them. Now, at last, when Jim could not change his mind about color or size.....they came to pay their debt. Weve never had a great deal of the wealth would consider himself the richest man in Idaho. gers of her deceased husband. Resting under neath were three exquisitely shined red marbles.The Moral:We will not be remembered by our words, but by our kind deeds. Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath. Today I wish you a day of ordinary miracles A fresh pot of coffee you didnt make yourself..... An unexpected phone call from an old friend .... ITS AN HONOR TO SERVE YOU. We consider it an honor to serve you and we are very thankful. May God bless you and this one nation under God.Sincerely, Ricky Miller and the staff of Rahal-Miller RAHAL MILLER CHEVROLET BUICK CADILLAC NISSAN GMC 4200 Lafayette St. Marianna, FL 1-800-338-8043850-482-3051

Our next door neighbor, Mrs. Donna, is kind of mean but I have to be nice to her or else my dad will get mad. She sure does cook good food! So when the food is done we all sit down and eat all awkward. Then someone I dont know starts talking. They say they remember me when I was only two feet tall. We all thank our neighbor.

But, this year the girls are going to win! I hope. The way we start the game is that we gather everyone up on teams and theres three girls and three boys. I told Selena that I was going to throw that ball so high that they will not be able to see it, so I throw it and said in my mind catch it, catch it! Then out of no where Selena jumps in and catches it and makes a touchdown! Everyone is yelling like me when I cry, Touchdown! Mom and dad are like, Oh, Wow! like it was amazing. I can do better. So, the second round I made four touchdowns and Selena made three touchdowns and then the game was over and guess what? The girls won! Now it is time to eat.

She helps me in math, science, and reading. She has to work all day and sometimes we get her mad. Ms. Cassie calls us one big happy family. Science is hard for me. Ms. Cassie will help me. She cares about her scholars and she lets us have pizza parties. She is very nice. Im glad I am in this class with Ms. Cassie. She is gonna help me get to 5th grade. She has taught me well. That is who Im most thankful for Ms. Cassie the best teacher in the world. OSVALDO I am the most thankful for my family. In my family I have my brother, sister, mom, and dad. I am thankful for them because they help me. One time my family helped me make a tire swing. My family makes me feel happy. ERIK CASTRO Do you have some thing you are thankful for? I do. Im thankful for my dad because he works by building hotels outside in Tallahassee. He gets a lot of money every Friday. He pays the bills. He works at 6:00 octock to 8:00 octock in the afternoon. Now you know who Im thankful for. I feel so happy for myself. JOSE What are you Thankful for?The kids in Cassie Hobbys fourth grade class at Tolar School tell us whats important to them at this special time of the year.The thing that Im most thankful for is my friends. Some of my buddies are Anabella, Tori, Jazin, and Haley. These are only some of my friends, not all of them. We all met at the beginning of the school year and we sometimes have problems like when Haley was feeling sad when Austin was making fun of her because of being short and I told her to just ignore him because he doesnt know that she is special like all of my friends that I have! We live in Bristol, FL and go to W.R. Tolar School and have fun there. My friends are the best things I have (after Jesus and my par ents) and we will always be stuck together forever and ever! SOPHIA MATOS The most thing I am thankful for is my teacher Ms. Cassie. She is the greatest teacher because she is awsome and funny. The reason she is aw some is because she gives the people who the work and some times the work is hard, but it is easy for me to do because I already know it by looking at it. The other reason is Ms. Cassie is funny. She is funny because yesterday Austin helped Olvaldo make the teacher dance to the Harlam Shake. That was funny. I will feel great if anybody reads my paper. ANTONIO I am most thankful for my family. My brother is and plays two sports, basketball and football. For Thanksgiving we go to our Auntie Bettys house. One time my brother was eating his favorite food, mack in cheese, and my cousin Ashton threw a shoe in his food he started crying. I almost did too time seeing him cry. But then I started laughing and almost fell down the stairs but it was funny. When he got a new plate we all sat down and said what we were thankful for and ate then we heded home. I was so happy. I got to spend time with my family. SHEFFIELD SMITH I am most thankful for my food because it keeps me alive. When I stayed with my papa we thanked him for the food. I was so happy. I was thankful for my food. HALEY PARKER I am thankful to have a bible so I can read Gods word. My bible has my dads name in golden ink and gots pictuers in it of places in the bible and how they look today. It has a blue cover that is riped on the sides of the bible so you can tell it is old. I read my bible evry day in my room on my bed. It used to be my dads bible before he got very sick. My bible means a lot to me for that reason. Thats why it makes me happy and peaceful when I read it. JOSHUA E. TODD Everyone has some thing they are thankfull for. I am thankfull for my famly because one year we went to Disney World and stayed for a whole week. It was me, my momma, my Aunt Cyntha, my granny and pa, my Aunt Jessica, my cousins Katlyn and Corthy, and my sister Gra cie. When it was time to leave I felt realy realy sad. Even though my cousins am thankful I got to go to Disney World. KALEB The thing that Im most thankful for is a family and cousins. The reason Im thankful for my family is that they take me to stores, restraunts and all that. Along time ago when I was four my whole family would go outside with me and throw the baseball and the football. It would be so fun that when we were done we would go to the Mexican restraunt. My family makes me feel really excited almost ev ery day. COLETON The most think that Im thankful for is my family. Im thankful for my family because all the grownups feed me, my brother, sister and my cousins. The grownups are the most important. They buy us everything. They buy us clothes, food and toys. Thats why you have to be thankful for what grown ups give you and others. My family is the best thing that ever happed to me. If it wasnt for my family I wouldnt be here right now. They buy me clothes, food and toys. You just have to be thankful for what you get and what you have. Some people in my family is my mom, dad, sister, brother, cousins, aunts, and uncles. We all injoy being together. They are the best family I have ever had. I like to be at my house with my family because thats where we do everything. Is your family the most thankful thing you ever had? JAZMIN I am the most thankful for my fameily and are wild adventures. Starting with my mini story. I was to us and said put your hands up and shackum all around. We laught. After that me and my fameily discuss that were going to a lake next week because theres no crazy popo there. I love Thanksgiving. AUSTIN I am the most thankful for my parents because they will talk to me if I need help. This one time when I needed to talk to some body about my feelings they told me to sit on the bed and they would talk to me. Then they came in the room and sat down and we talked about my feelings. That is why I am thankful for my parents. TRENTON PETERSONIm the most thankful for my family. Because we always have time together. I remember when we played soccer. It was me, my sis Taylor, and my mommy on one team. Then on the other team it was Trenton my brother, Tyler, also my brother, and my daddy. The girls started out winning but then the boys got cought up. The worst thang was we had to quit the game because daddy stepped on my foot. But that was still the best day. And thats why Im thankful for my family. Im such a lucky little girl. TORI PETERSON So Thanksgiving is a time to say what you are most thankful for. I am most thankful for family and friends. One reson why my family and friends are most inportent to me is my family watch over me, feed me, my BFFs are forgiving. I remember when me and my family was on a trip. I seen one of my BFFs. It was Stace Hall. She live in Kentuky. I asked why are you in Atlanta? Stace said she at a family vacation. I said I am to! Stace asked do you want to play. Sure I said exciteatly. I had a great time with my family and my BFF. AMARIAH CARTER What I am thankful for is to have my mom and my brother. I spend a lot of time at the house or even in the yard. But the main thing I do with my family is watch movies. One time I was going movie shopping and my mom picked out The Lorax which is an awsome movie that I can watch over an over again. We also color together with lots of crayons on Christmas colorin books. It is fun and special. JOVAH ANDERSONSince 1993, Big Bend Hospices Tree of Remem brance has been a special holiday tradition which allows people in the community to honor their loved ones and help Big Bend Hospice raise money for patient care. A gift to the Tree of Remembrance provides a wonderful alternative to traditional holiday gifts. The Tree provides a time to remember and celebrate the lives of those we love. It also helps Big Bend Hospice provide care, comfort and hope to those who are dying. A Tree of Remembrance is set up each year at the Apalachee Restaurant in Bristol. Trees of Remembrance in the surrounding counties will be open beginning Sunday, Dec. 1. Please check the Big Bend Hospice Web Site for locations. The Tree of Remembrance Kiosk for Leon County will be located in the Sears Wing, lower level, at Governors Square Mall through Dec. 23. This year, in addition to the traditional three levels of giving; angels ($50), bells ($25) and bows ($10); patrons who make a donation of $250 or more will receive a limited edition Wedgewood ornament, along with a beautiful ornament of their choosing placed on a Tree of Remembrance at the location they specify. Tree of Remembrance now a holiday tradition
