DANIEL WILLIAMS PHOTOSby Michael DeVuyst, contributing writerORLANDO The old coaches adage that defense wins championships was true last Friday night in Orlando at the Citrus Bowl in the Class 1A State Finals. With the top-ranked Blountstown Tigers defense only surrender ing 61 points in 13 games and producing eight shutouts during the season, many thought it would be Blountstown hoisting the championship trophy. However, it was the Trenton Ti gers defense that helped earn Title after being the runnerup last year. Blountstowns defense played well but could not overcome 3 turnovers and 14 penalties totaling 149 yards that placed the defense in night long. The Blountstown offense was stymied the en tire night producing only 139 yards on 54 plays, accounting for 10 of the 14 penalties. Blount stown received the opening kick off but was forced to punt after three plays. After a short Blountstown punt, Trenton was in Blountstown territory to On second down, Trenton fumbled the ball and it was recovered by Blountstowns Shon Peterson on the Blount stown 34. Blountstown could not move the ball and had to punt after three plays. Tren ton started their next drive on their 45. The Blountstown defense rose to the occasion and forced another 3 and out. Blountstown Tigers fall 14-0 in Class 1A Finals on Friday Gov. Scott and First Lady plan visits to BristolFlorida's First Lady, Ann Scott, is scheduled to visit W.R. Tolar School today in Bristol, according to Liberty County School Super intendent Tony Anderson. She will visit Fran Cutshaw's fourth grade class to read the story, "Elizabeth's Stormy Ride."

Jeffrey David Chapman, 45, is charged with grand theft after he allegedly took a Dell laptop computer from an Altha residence he was sharing with a woman this past summer. According to the woman, she was away from the residence for a few days in July and when she returned, her computer was missing. She said Chapman had left the residence and when she got in touch with him, he told her he had buried the computer somewhere on her property because he was upset with her. She said he agreed to come to her home and locate the computer but never did. Later, he told her he had the laptop with him and said he would return it but did not. He was given a conditional release following his arrest. JEFFREY CHAPMAN made after man punched A 56-year-old Liberty County man was charged with aggravated battery after he allegedly punched his 21-year-old stepson and then hit him in the head with a frying pan. Liberty County Sheriff's Deputy Josh Shepard reported that the victim's mouth was covered with blood and he had a big cut down the middle of his forehead to his nose. The witness said the victim went inside to get away from Cheshire, but Cheshire went in after him. When the victim came back outside, he had a cut on his fore head and was covered in blood. Cheshire told deputies "all I did was push him" when questioned about the altercation. The arrest report noted that Cheshire's hands were swollen and there were blood spots on his hands and the sleeve of his shirt. After notifying him that he was under arrest, Cheshire said he wasn't going to jail and began walking away. He pulled away when deputies grabbed him and handcuffed him, according to the arrest report, which resulted in an additional charge of resisting arrest.

Its as if President Obama had taken over the power companies. JAY LENONew Jersey legislators want to ban eating while driving. Good luck getting Governor Chris Christie to sign that one. JAY LENOIts the holidays. Getting together with your family...on paper thats a wonderful idea. DAVID LETTERMAN have lost so much money they are going to be reviewing their business model. That could mean big changes. The last time the post the ponies and bought trucks. JAY LENOYankees second baseman Robinson Cano just agreed to a $240 million, 10-year deal with the Seattle Mariners. Cano said, I had to follow my wallet. I mean my heart! JIMMY FALLONDid you see The Sound of Music? It was the most exciting live TV event since Matt Lauers on-air prostate examination. DAVID LETTERMANObamacare is still struggling to get off the ground. Experts now say the success or fail ure of Obamacare will depend on whether young people sign up. Which is why as of today it covers medical marijuana. CRAIG FERGUSONLast week a man was locked in an airplane for several hours after he fell asleep during landed. But other than that, Joe Biden had a great trip to Asia. JIMMY FALLONThis winter storm has left thousands without electricity. Its as if President Obama had taken over the power companies. JAY LENOTheres a snowstorm all over two-thirds of the country. Nobody, because of the snowstorm, DAVID LETTERMANThe NSA collects almost 5 billion records a day that can pinpoint a cellphone anywhere in the world, track its movements, and map the personal relationships of the person using it. Ill tell you what this means. You know the crazy people that wear the tinfoil hats because they think the government is tracking them? Turns out they were right. JIMMY KIMMELThis is a crazy story. For two decades, the secret launch code for Americas nuclear missiles was 0000000000. Even more amazing, George W. Bush forgot it twice. CRAIG FERGUSONToronto Mayor Rob Ford reiterated that he should be re-elected mayor of Toronto because he saves taxpayers money. I think he should be re-elected because hes hilarious and because I dont live in Toronto. JIMMY KIMMELEvery 10 minutes during The Sound of Mu sic you got to vote off one of the Trapp kids. DA VID LETTERMAN In Syria, Muslim rebels are so desperate for food they broke into the zoo and ate a lion. That shows you how things are changing in the Mideast. In the old days they used to feed the Christians to the lions, and now theyre feeding the lions to the Muslims. JAY LENOTis the seasonto be jolly. Its the Christmas sea son, the Holiday season, the Winter Solstice or the season of whatever your customs or religion dic tates, so enjoy it. But, in to days America that is easier said than done. Distrust of government is a cornerstone of the Ameri can psyche. Everyone hates that old govern ment and particularly that socialist, Marxist, Communist, born in Africa Obama. But that hatred of government temporarily goes away old homestead. Cries for government help are quick and shrill. The Associated Press reported that in addition to distrusting government most people do not trust each other. People worry that they are getting scammed by the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker, meaning that people distrust most of the people with whom they associate with either professionally or person ally. Why do we not trust our fellow man or woman? Plenty of guesses, but not sure any our bubble of go to work and come home. Im guilty of living in my bubble. In the work I do, I meet many people, but the meetings are at arms length. Relationships are not devel oped. We spend enough time together or on the telephone to conclude our business then we go our separate ways. For me, I dont care for complicated friend one except FAA air controllers. But, no matter what frailties may exist in our social skills, we collectively should enjoy the Christmas or Holiday season, whichever you wish to call it. I blame the news media, both right and left, for our perpetual state of angst. We are bom barded with trash talk 24/7. The right-wing belief that there is a war on Christianity simmers the Christmas season with right-wing pundits declaring that anyone who greets a fellowman with Happy Holidays rather than Merry I think that people should be able to enjoy this season of the year in whatever manner they wish as long as what they do is lawful and harms no one. The right of religious peo ple to celebrate Christmas is without question, but so is the right of the atheist to celebrate the holiday season in a secular manner. Individuals can celebrate has to stay out of the mix. Government cant sanction religious events, but people are free to promote Christmas or Happy Holiday events. but it seems that Christmas 2012 was just the other day. The year 2013 is used up; only a few days left. In addition of anguishing over what presents to buy for family and friends, this is a Did we live the best most honorable life this past year? Did we lie, cheat or steal? Did we make a kind gesture to someone in our circle of friends or fellow workers? Maybe, maybe not. Whatever we did or didnt do is a done deal. It is what it is. We cant reclaim the past, but we can claim the future. This is the time of year for New Years resolutions. We resolve to lose weight, exercise, stop smoking, stop drinking; resolutions that last to about January 15. America needs a bit of the Christmas spirit throughout the year. My view is that Americans have lost some of the cohesiveness and concern for fellowman; qualities that are basic to this place called America. Disagreement among men and women seems to be preferred rather than agreement in the best interest of this place called America. Politically, politicians and people are so disagreeable that they have demonstrated in spades that they are unable to take care of our collective national business. The two politi cal parties apply the scorched earth policy the village idiot to the rest of the international community. But, Americans are resilient, and we will weather the political incompetence that besets us. The sun will always come up in the morn ing. Tis the season to be jolly. Enjoy it.

OBITUARIES How hospice services and their expenses are covered from hospice care when life expectancy is ap proximately six months. The patient, family and friends can initiate the process by contacting a local hospice program. When people learn about all that hospice care has to offer, often they are both relieved and con cerned: relieved that the comprehensive list of services aims to comfort the patient and assist the caregiver; concerned about how such valu able services are paid for. Many times people are hesitant to contact hospice because they are unsure of the cost. However, once some one is medically quali hospice patients use Medicare Hospice ben efits to pay for their care. (Eighty percent of people who use hospice care are over the age of 65, and are thus entitled to the services offered by the Medicare Hos Hospice and Pallia tive Care Organization, 2013.) Medicare Part A offers 100% coverage for hospice services, including expert pain and symptom management, care from a team of pro fessionals, medicines, medical equipment and medical supplies related to the hospice diagnosis. physician and nursing services, hospice aides, spiritual, dietary and other counseling, con tinuous care during crisis periods, trained volun teers and bereavement services. Every BBH patient will always have access to the hospice team by telephone. After hours, a BBH nurse will respond to the call.

Hospice patients are free to go out to visit friends and family, or participate in other ac tivities as they are able. A patient can remain in hospice care beyond six months if a physipatient is terminally ill. Regular Medicare coverage is available to Hospice beneficiaries for non-terminal related services. In 1986, laws were passed to allow the states to develop coverage for hospice programs. Most states have a Medicaid is patterned after the Medicare hospice ben insurance is similar to the Medicare and Med Hospice services are covered for military families under Tricare. Your local hospice, Big Bend Hospice, Inc., through community sup port, covers the costs of ing care who have no insurance. Sometimes a termi nally ill patients health improves or their illness goes into remission and the patient can be dis charged from service.

If you stop your hospice care, you will receive the type of Medicare or Medicaid coverage that you had before electing hospice. If you are eligible, you can go back to hospice care at any time.

DANIEL WILLIAMS PHOTOS by Michael DeVuyst, contributing writer ORLANDO The old coaches adage that defense wins championships was true last Friday night in Orlando at the Citrus Bowl in the Class 1A State Finals. With the top-ranked Blountstown Tigers defense only surrender ing 61 points in 13 games and producing eight shutouts during the sea son, many thought it would be Blountstown hoisting the championship trophy. How ever, it was the Trenton Ti gers defense that helped earn Title after being the runnerup last year. Blountstowns defense played well but could not overcome 3 turnovers and 14 penalties totaling 149 yards that placed the defense in night long. The Blountstown offense was stymied the en tire night producing only 139 yards on 54 plays, accounting for 10 of the 14 penalties. Blount stown re ceived the opening kick off but was forced to punt after three plays. After a short Blount stown punt, Trenton was in Blountstown territory to On second down, Trenton fumbled the ball and it was recovered by Blountstowns Shon Peterson on the Blount stown 34. Blountstown could not move the ball and had to punt after three plays. Tren ton started their next drive on their 45. The Blountstown defense rose to the occasion and forced another 3 and out. Blountstown Tigers fall 14-0 in Class 1A Finals on Friday Gov. Scott and First Lady plan visits to Bristol Florida's First Lady, Ann Scott, is scheduled to visit W.R. Tolar School today in Bristol, according to Liberty County School Super intendent Tony Anderson. She will visit Fran Cutshaw's fourth grade class to read the story, "Elizabeth's Stormy Ride."

Jeffrey David Chapman, 45, is charged with grand theft after he allegedly took a Dell laptop computer from an Altha residence he was sharing with a woman this past summer. According to the woman, she was away from the residence for a few days in July and when she returned, her computer was missing. She said Chapman had left the residence and when she got in touch with him, he told her he had buried the computer somewhere on her property because he was upset with her. She said he agreed to come to her home and locate the computer but never did. Later, he told her he had the laptop with him and said he would return it but did not. He was given a conditional release following his arrest. JEFFREY CHAPMAN made after man punched A 56-year-old Liberty County man was charged with aggravated battery after he allegedly punched his 21-year-old stepson and then hit him in the head with a frying pan. Liberty County Sheriff's Deputy Josh Shepard reported that the victim's mouth was covered with blood and he had a big cut down the middle of his forehead to his nose. The witness said the victim went inside to get away from Cheshire, but Cheshire went in after him. When the victim came back outside, he had a cut on his fore head and was covered in blood. Cheshire told deputies "all I did was push him" when questioned about the altercation. The arrest report noted that Cheshire's hands were swollen and there were blood spots on his hands and the sleeve of his shirt. After notifying him that he was under arrest, Cheshire said he wasn't going to jail and began walking away. He pulled away when deputies grabbed him and handcuffed him, according to the arrest report, which resulted in an additional charge of resisting arrest.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL DECEMBER 11, 2013 COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. This winter storm has left thousands without electricity. Its as if President Obama had taken over the power companies. JAY LENO New Jersey legislators want to ban eating while driving. Good luck getting Governor Chris Christie to sign that one. JAY LENO Its the holidays. Getting together with your family...on paper thats a wonderful idea. DAVID LETTERMAN have lost so much money they are going to be reviewing their business model. That could mean big changes. The last time the post the ponies and bought trucks. JAY LENO Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano just agreed to a $240 million, 10-year deal with the Seattle Mariners. Cano said, I had to follow my wallet. I mean my heart! JIMMY FALLON Did you see The Sound of Music? It was the most exciting live TV event since Matt Lauers on-air prostate examination. DAVID LETTERMAN Obamacare is still struggling to get off the ground. Experts now say the success or fail ure of Obamacare will depend on whether young people sign up. Which is why as of today it covers medical marijuana. CRAIG FERGUSON Last week a man was locked in an airplane for several hours after he fell asleep during landed. But other than that, Joe Biden had a great trip to Asia. JIMMY FALLON This winter storm has left thousands without electricity. Its as if President Obama had taken over the power companies. JAY LENO Theres a snowstorm all over two-thirds of the country. Nobody, because of the snowstorm, DAVID LETTERMAN The NSA collects almost 5 billion records a day that can pinpoint a cellphone anywhere in the world, track its movements, and map the personal relationships of the person using it. Ill tell you what this means. You know the crazy people that wear the tinfoil hats because they think the government is tracking them? Turns out they were right. JIMMY KIMMEL This is a crazy story. For two decades, the secret launch code for Americas nuclear missiles was 0000000000. Even more amazing, George W. Bush forgot it twice. CRAIG FERGUSON Toronto Mayor Rob Ford reiterated that he should be re-elected mayor of Toronto because he saves taxpayers money. I think he should be re-elected because hes hilarious and because I dont live in Toronto. JIMMY KIMMEL Every 10 minutes during The Sound of Mu sic you got to vote off one of the Trapp kids. DAVID LETTERMAN In Syria, Muslim rebels are so desperate for food they broke into the zoo and ate a lion. That shows you how things are changing in the Mideast. In the old days they used to feed the Christians to the lions, and now theyre feeding the lions to the Muslims. JAY LENO Tis the season to be jolly. Its the Christmas sea son, the Holiday season, the Winter Solstice or the season of whatever your customs or religion dic tates, so enjoy it. But, in to days America that is easier said than done. Distrust of government is a cornerstone of the Ameri can psyche. Everyone hates that old govern ment and particularly that socialist, Marxist, Communist, born in Africa Obama. But that hatred of government temporarily goes away old homestead. Cries for government help are quick and shrill. The Associated Press reported that in addi tion to distrusting government most people do not trust each other. People worry that they are getting scammed by the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker, meaning that people distrust most of the people with whom they associate with either professionally or person ally. Why do we not trust our fellow man or woman? Plenty of guesses, but not sure any our bubble of go to work and come home. Im guilty of living in my bubble. In the work I do, I meet many people, but the meetings are at arms length. Relationships are not devel oped. We spend enough time together or on the telephone to conclude our business then we go our separate ways. For me, I dont care for complicated friend one except FAA air controllers. But, no matter what frailties may exist in our social skills, we collectively should enjoy the Christmas or Holiday season, whichever you wish to call it. I blame the news media, both right and left, for our perpetual state of angst. We are bom barded with trash talk 24/7. The right-wing be lief that there is a war on Christianity simmers the Christmas season with right-wing pundits declaring that anyone who greets a fellowman with Happy Holidays rather than Merry I think that people should be able to enjoy this season of the year in whatever manner they wish as long as what they do is lawful and harms no one. The right of religious peo ple to celebrate Christmas is without question, but so is the right of the atheist to celebrate the holiday sea son in a secular manner. Individuals can celebrate has to stay out of the mix. Government cant sanction religious events, but people are free to promote Christmas or Happy Holiday events. but it seems that Christmas 2012 was just the other day. The year 2013 is used up; only a few days left. In addition of anguishing over what presents to buy for family and friends, this is a Did we live the best most honorable life this past year? Did we lie, cheat or steal? Did we make a kind gesture to someone in our circle of friends or fellow workers? Maybe, maybe not. Whatever we did or didnt do is a done deal. It is what it is. We cant reclaim the past, but we can claim the future. This is the time of year for New Years resolutions. We resolve to lose weight, exercise, stop smoking, stop drinking; resolu tions that last to about January 15. America needs a bit of the Christmas spirit throughout the year. My view is that Ameri cans have lost some of the cohesiveness and concern for fellowman; qualities that are basic to this place called America. Disagreement among men and women seems to be preferred rather than agreement in the best interest of this place called America. Politically, politicians and people are so disagreeable that they have demonstrated in spades that they are unable to take care of our collective national business. The two politi cal parties apply the scorched earth policy the village idiot to the rest of the international community. But, Americans are resilient, and we will weather the political incompetence that besets us. The sun will always come up in the morn ing. Tis the season to be jolly. Enjoy it.

OBITUARIES How hospice services and their expenses are covered from hospice care when life expectancy is ap proximately six months. The patient, family and friends can initiate the process by contacting a local hospice program. When people learn about all that hospice care has to offer, often they are both relieved and con cerned: relieved that the comprehensive list of services aims to comfort the patient and assist the caregiver; concerned about how such valu able services are paid for. Many times people are hesitant to contact hospice because they are unsure of the cost. However, once some one is medically quali hospice patients use Medicare Hospice ben efits to pay for their care. (Eighty percent of people who use hospice care are over the age of 65, and are thus entitled to the services offered by the Medicare Hos Hospice and Pallia tive Care Organization, 2013.) Medicare Part A offers 100% coverage for hospice services, in cluding expert pain and symptom management, care from a team of pro fessionals, medicines, medical equipment and medical supplies related to the hospice diagnosis. physician and nursing services, hospice aides, spiritual, dietary and other counseling, con tinuous care during crisis periods, trained volun teers and bereavement services. Every BBH patient will always have access to the hospice team by telephone. After hours, a BBH nurse will respond to the call. An will make a home visit if assistance is necessary. does not pay for roundthe-clock care for pa tients. Hospice social workers help families additional care for pa tients who need more help. Also, unlike the Medicare Home Health benefit, the Hospice patients to be home bound. Hospice patients are free to go out to visit friends and family, or participate in other ac tivities as they are able. A patient can remain in hospice care beyond six months if a physi patient is terminally ill. Regular Medicare coverage is available to Hospice beneficiaries for non-terminal related services. In 1986, laws were passed to allow the states to develop coverage for hospice programs. Most states have a Medicaid is patterned after the Medicare hospice ben insurance is similar to the Medicare and Med Hospice services are covered for military families under Tricare. Your local hospice, Big Bend Hospice, Inc., through community sup port, covers the costs of ing care who have no insurance. Sometimes a termi nally ill patients health improves or their illness goes into remission and the patient can be dis charged from service. Also, as a hospice pa tient, you always have the right to stop getting hospice care, for any reason. If you stop your hospice care, you will receive the type of Medicare or Medicaid coverage that you had before electing hospice. If you are eligible, you can go back to hospice care at any time. When you have hos burdens usually associ ated with caring for a terminally ill patient are virtually nonexis tent. Through Big Bend Hospice, no one is ever refused services because of inability to pay. As the hometown hospice, community support al lows all eligible patients to receive care from Big Bend Hospice.

The JVs leading scorers were Dylan Hill with 11 points, Jay Yon with 8, Aadin Hill with 6, and Hunter Young with 4. Next, the Varsity Cats took their turn against the Bulldogs.
