Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JANUARY 22, 2014 Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. The White House announced that President Obama will visit Pope Francis in the near future. Pope Francis thinks Obamacare can be a suc cess. Sure, hes the Pope. He has to believe in miracles. JAY LENO Country music star Trace Adkins was on a cruise ship. He got in a brawl with a Trace Adkins im personator. Nobody is exactly sure who won. CONAN OBRIEN The Pope has chosen 19 new cardinals and three new late-night talk-show hosts. DAVID LETTERMAN This week country singer Trace Adkins was on a country music-themed cruise when he got into them apart. JIMMY FALLON The Vatican announced theyre making some changes to the way they handle applications for sainthood. Did you know you have to apply for sainthood? The application process can take years and cost up to $1 million along the way. to be saints they give you a discount. JIMMY KIMMEL They say that most airline seats on planes today are meant for 170-pound passengers. The last time the average American weighed 170 pounds, JAY LENO A new survey found that Peyton Manning is the most well-respected player in the NFL by his fel low players. In fact, yesterday the Patriots spent three hours moving out of his way. JIMMY FALLON Justin Biebers egg-throwing scandal is rocking the judicial world. If Justin is convicted of a felo ny, he could be deported back to Canada. Ameri CONAN OBRIEN Alex Rodriguez has a lot of trouble. He is suing everybody in baseball, and meanwhile he is ter ribly out of shape. He hasnt played ball in a long time. Gee, I wonder what a guy like that does to get back into top physical condition. DAVID LETTERMAN The Super Bowl is coming up very soon, and or ganizers for the big game say that security will be so tight this year, the only thing fans will have to worry about is if their team wins. Then they said, JIMMY FALLON Award nominations and search warrants are the only things that wake celebrities up early nowa days. JIMMY KIMMEL On Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said gay people at the Olympics should not fear for their safety despite the countrys anti-gay laws. He said they should fear for their safety because theyre in Russia. JIMMY FALLON Health authorities say theyre seeing a massive increase in antibiotic drug-resistant diseases and are predicting a worldwide epidemic of dis eases we can no longer treat. Thats great news, got diseases you cant treat. JAY LENO what every Hollywood actress dreams of true weightlessness. CONAN OBRIEN A new study found that more than 11 million peo ple have quit Facebook in the last three years. And unfortunately, none of them were your par ents. JIMMY FALLON COMMENTARY WASHINGTON No scandal is ex actly like another, but there is similar ity between what is now dubbed Bridgegate and its famous antecedent, the scandal that gave rise to all the gates, the break-in at the resignation of President Nixon. It was a dential race, and it was totally unnecessary orchestrated by Governor Chris Christies Just as Nixon was clobbering Democrat election, Christie had his re-election sewed mayors in cities and towns across the state. Christie won endorsements from more hundreds. His staffs failure to bring Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich into the tent residents found lanes closed without warn ing on the George Washington Bridge. Christie says he was blindsided by the news of his staffs involvement in the lane closings and denies knowing any that inconvenienced thousands of Fort Lee residents. If hes not telling the truth, well know soon enough as more information surfaces. Assuming hes truthful, the boneheaded scheme itself may not have been directly ordered by Christie any more than the Watergate break-in was set in motion We do know that Nixon established in leaks of national security informa tion, a legitimate goal that quickly Ellsberg, who had leaked the Pentagon Pa We dont know if Christie tasked any of his aides to go the extra mile to cor and gave them an hour to tell him the truth about what they knew. When none came forward he felt free to joke about the lane closings, saying he was out there moving the orange cones himself, the story was that ridiculous. Its in the eye of the beholder as to what goes over the line, and what is standard in New Jersey. I am not a bully, Christie ing those who defy him. For those who remember Watergate, when questioned by newsman Dan Rather is one for the history books. I am not a crook, Nixon said. True, he didnt line his When the Washington Post was hot on the trail of the Watergate scandal, the say wont be long before someone starts talk like a dirty trick gone bad, and thats one of Ghosts of Nixon WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND by Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JANUARY 22, 2014 NOBLE LIFE OR SENSELESS DEATH: Respect for the wilderness makes a difference Jon Krakauers 1996 book, Into the Wild tells the story of Christopher McCandless, a recent college graduate who gives away all his savings and drifts around the country for a couple of years. Eventually, he decides to retreat to the Alaskan wilderness and live off the land for a while. In 2007, the book was made into a critically acclaimed movie, but its sub ject never got to see either one come to fruition. McCandless died of starvation in 1992 after roughly 100 days in the Alaska woods. * A few years later, Timothy Treadwell, aka the Grizzly Man, turned his love of attention and lack of formal training into a death sentence for himself and his girlfriend. The bears he became famous for protecting decided the two would make a nice prewinter snack. His story received wide media atten tion and is the subject of a documentary and a miniseries. Treadwells bear experiences lasted about 13 sum mers. * These two men died of different causes: one lacked food, while the other became food. But both are dead for the same reason: they were idiots. Now contrast their stories with that of Richard Louis Dick Proenneke, whose journals are the ba sis of the book One Mans Wilderness In his 50s, Pro enneke decided to pursue his dream of living alone in the Twin Lakes region of Southwest Alaska. The book details the intensive planning and effort that en abled this remarkable man to survive and thrive in an environment that is as hostile as it is beautiful. One Mans Wilderness is also a portrait of a man just as passionate about the wilderness as McCand less or Treadwell. But for Proenneke, that passion translated into Jobs patience and a powerful work ethic. For example, he cut down trees and made his boards by hand, and he fashioned door hinges from empty metal food tins. He hunted, gathered and grew his own food, meticulously detailing in his journals how it was processed and stored. Its 40 miles by air to the nearest town, so the only Cessna aircraft. It is incredible that he not only lived in these conditions, but also enjoyed and appreciated this life. That is especially true in an era when some people have anxiety attacks because their Internet is disrupted. Theres no doubt that maturity is responsible for some of Proennekes success, as life experience was one of the major differences between him and the other men. Before his adventure, Proenneke had been a carpenter, a shepherd, a mechanic and a heavy equipment operator. During the years he spent in those trades, he became well-known for his ingenu ity, craftsmanship, strength and stamina. On the other hand, McCandless had recently got ten a bachelors degree in history and anthropology, while Treadwell was reportedly a recovering addict and aspiring actor. In my view, both sought the wil derness as simply a backdrop for their own personal dramas. For Proenneke, wilderness itself was the main attraction. Another key difference between them was pur pose. Proenneke wasnt running away from life like the spoiled college kid McCandless or indulging a dangerous hobby like the fame-whore-with-a-deathwish Treadwell. Instead, he was living a dream he had nurtured, planned and saved for all his life. The payoff was that Proenneke got to enjoy the existence he created, staying by himself in his little remote Alaskan cabin for the better part of 30 years, only leaving at the age of 82. In 2003, he passed away from a stroke 11 years after McCandless and just six months before Treadwell. Dick Proenneke whittled life down to its barest essence and made his life a work of art all of us can appreciate and learn from. His story shows us the beauty of a simple life in the wilderness, lived well and with great respect for nature. McCandless and Treadwells examples teach us that the respect part is non-negotiable. * Read this book. Seriously. Just read it. cy and enjoy a good story, read One Mans Wilder ness Also, Filmmaker Bob Swerer produced three doc umentary videos about Dick Proennekes life, which are adapted from the book and from actual 8 mm footage Proenneke shot. One of these, Alone in the Wilderness still airs occasionally on PBS.

Outta the Woods by Tony Young Many people think you need a large tract of land for hunting to harvest a mature buck. But for a lot of us, leasing a large chunk of property is just So Im here to tell you that you dont need a large tract of land if your small hunting lease is in the right spot and you manage your herd correctly and let the young bucks walk. My wife and I lease a little patch of woods less than 30 minutes from where we live and work. Its barely 20 acres but has provided us some nice hunting over the past couple seasons. So weve made our little lease as good as we can make it. Weve got corn and soybean feeders and mineral rocks out. We hire a good friend to bring over his tractor, and we plant cool-weather and warm-weather food plots twice a year. keys on the property and a small deer herd. Were familiar with the deer that use the property because of the game cameras we have out and from what we see with our own eyes. This season, we de cided not to shoot any does during the archery and antlerless deer sea sons because we want to increase our herd. There are a few young bucks, in hikers, checking boaters for safety gear and teaching children about fishing and hunting are just some of the contributions they make.

But there were two nice, ma ture 8-points that we have seen on camera for the past two years, and those were the only two deer that we were going to target this season, unless some other mature bucks showed up. The dominant buck in the herd, however, was a 4.5-year-old 8 point with a heavy and very sym metrical rack and a white patch of hair between his shoulders. Thats the deer I set my sights on. We named him Blaze a During one short, af ternoon sit, there was a steady, northeast wind, perfect for our favorite tree stand. I had only about 45 minutes to hunt before dark. Soon as I settled in, two does stepped out of the woods and into the food plot followed, by a spike. It was the pre-rut period, and we were see ing more deer activity, especially bucks, during daylight hours. Things looked promising. I enjoyed watching the three deer graze on oats, wheat and rye, and I heard at sunset. The does were still upwind but started acting strange, and one of them put its tail up and started blowing. They all ended up running off. I decided to give it a last-ditch effort by doing a multiple-note tending grunt call. There were of legal shooting hours, and I started gathering my things together when game camera went off. Something had just walked in front of the cam era: a deer, and a pretty good-sized one at that. I slowly picked up my the scope. It was a racked buck, but it was hard to tell if it was one of the younger bucks that we didnt want to shoot. The buck was looking right at me, and I knew I didnt have much time to make a decision. Thats when he bent down to feed and I saw the white patch on his back! Thats when I knew it was Blaze! Buck fever immedi ately set in; my heart just went to poundin and my hands a-shakin. This was the deer Id been hunting for two seasons. This was the dominant buck of our little patch of woods, and I needed to pull myself together and make a good shot. Time was running out, my hands and breathing were all over the place, and Blaze was facing me, not presenting me with the shot I wanted. All of a sudden he turned to his left and gave me his right shoulder. I managed to calm down and steadied the crosshairs on his right shoulder. I slowly After the recoil, I could see the bucks white belly, laying on the ground right where he had stood. I im mediately climbed down and walked over to my tro phy buck. His 172-pound body and perfect rack were just as grand as they looked on all the game cam pictures. And the shot place ment was right on the money and humane. My .270-caliber bullet found its mark, killing the deer instantly. So it just goes to show you that you dont need a large piece of land to you have to do is put in a little time providing sources, and if you want the chance to shoot a ma ture buck year after year, let the young bucks walk, and manage your deer ac cording to the herd size. And another thing some hunters say they dont like the game cams because that scares off big bucks. Well, not only did my old-school cam not scare away Blaze, but if not have known he was even there. I hope you enjoyed a great Christmas holiday, and I wish you a very happy new year. Remem ber, you can get big things from small packages, and deer season is not over yet in central and north Florida. And I still have that other big 8-point deer running around some where on our little piece of hunting paradise too. dia relations coordinator for the FWCs Division of Hunting and Game Man him with questions about CORLETTS ROOFING LLC FREE ESTIMATES (850) 643-7062

Page 12 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JANUARY 22, 2014 SCHOOL NEWS Recently it was de cided that our BackPack program would have to be halted. You might ask, how can a child focus on solving a math problem or memorizing a new word when she or he is trying to ignore the persistent pangs of hunger? Across the country, teachers and school nurses have found that in some instances, Monday morn ing comes and they are forced to compete against hunger for the attention of their students. More than 18 million children qualify for free or reduced price meals through the National School Lunch Program, the fuel that they need to get them through the week. What happens to these children when they go home over the weekend? Locally we have 100% of our students that receive a free lunch while they are at school. For more than 15 years, the Feeding America BackPack Program has been helping children get the nutritious and easy-toprepare food they need over the course of the weekend. Today, bags of food assembled at more than 150 local food banks are distributed at the end of the week to nearly 230,000 children every year. In Liberty County we have been able to provide these backpacks for 50 students per week until now. Lack of funding has caused the program to be curtailed. With your help, we can restart this program. You can sponsor a child for the remainder of 201314 school year for $100. This tax-deductible gift will once again allow us to distribute food to be taken home on the weekends. Please call Roger Phillips of First Baptist Church of Bristol, if you will help us get this needed project back in operation. We are diligently searching for funding to keep this program going. Please call (850) 643-5400 or (850) 228-3731, cell. BackPack Program is halted by lack of funds Have lunch at the Tigers Table today Blountstown High School's culinary program, The Tiger's Table, will be Wednesday, Jan. 22, with seating from 11:30 a.m. 1 p.m. in the BHS culinary dining room.

Without the vegetation on deciduous trees, its easy to see the bones of your yardthe tree trunks and branches, sidewalks, and fenceswhich frame it. One of the best ways to start with landscape design is a piece of paper and pencil. If youve got a paper copy of your sur vey, even betteryou can sketch in trees, sidewalks, and fences with an aerial view and see where the open spots lie. Take some time to walk around your yard, considering how you use the space. Do you have children or pets that need room to run? A shady area for relaxing? Full sun for a garden?

After deciding on addi tional needs for hardscape and plantings, the next step is to make room for them by removing sod or unwanted landscape plants. Now is also the time to look at irrigation needsif you have an existing system, make sure it still works with your new landscape design. If it doesnt, its much better to redirect water, piping, or add new sprinkler heads while youre digging into the soil than after new vegetation. If you arent using an irrigation contractor, youll need a solid understanding of how the system is set up before making changes. Inexpensive kits can also be purchased to add drip or micro-irrigation to an already-installed system. Once irrigation and hardscape are complete, you can begin with plant installation. It makes the most sense to plant trees the root zone, then put in shrubs and groundcov These trees and shrubs will provide all-year interest by Beth Bolles, Horticulture Agent, Escambia County Trees and shrubs often serve a distinct purpose in landscapes, other than to provide color.
