Happy Easter. The Calhoun Liberty Journal and CLJ News .com KEEPING YOU SAFE Sharing the road with motorcyclists As the weather warms up, more and more motorcycleriding Floridians take to the roads. As your Sheriff, I want to remind drivers of vehicles and motorcycles of some important tips on safely sharing the road: Motorists need to be aware of how their actions can impact the safety of motorcyclists and learn to share the road safely with motorcyclists. A large portion of motorcycle crashes involve two key components: poor speed and spatial judgment of other drivers and poor motorcyclist conspicuity. Safety Tips for Motorists Search the traffic around you constantly and expect to see motorcycles. Check your blind spots before changing lanes or merging, especially in heavy Double-check traffic at intersections before you turn or pull out. Motorcycles can easily be hidden in traffic. Look for a helmet above, tires below, or a shadow alongside a vehicle that you cant see around. Leave at least a four-second distance between your car and a motorcycle in front of you. Note when a motorcycle passes a point in the road. If your vehicle passes the same point in less than four seconds, youre following too closely. When passing a motorcycle, give a full lane to the motorcycle. Do not share lanes! Keep a watchful eye at all times. Individual motorcycles may blend into a larger group and may be closer than you think. Watch out when turning left because most crashes between cars and motorcycles occur involve left turns at intersections. Stay attentive and focused because distracted driving is a major cause of car-motorcycle crashes. Make sure to always signal when changing lanes to ensure the motorcycle rider knows what action you intend to take. Remember that failing to yield right of way can result in the death or serious injury of a motorcyclist. Make sure to observe and signals. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation web site provides information for Car Drivers on video instruction, and additional resources on how to safely share the road with motorcyclists.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL APRIL 16, 2014 WASHING TON Equal pay for equal work is an age-old rallying cry that resonates as strongly today as it did when the suffragists invoked the phrase. Join the union, girls, and together say Equal Pay for Equal Work, exhorted Susan B. An thony, who led the drive to gain women the vote when Lincoln was president. Lincoln signed the 13th amendment in 1865, au thorizing the vote for male former slaves and newly naturalized male immigrants, privately assuring suffrage leaders women would get their turn. It would take 55 years. Lincoln was as sassinated before he could keep his prom ise if he ever intended to, and Anthony died before her dream was realized with the passage of the 19th amendment ex panding voting rights to women. Womens rights advocates are still work comes to work and wages. With women a key demographic in the upcoming mid term elections, Democrats are pressing ahead with various measures to highlight the inequality that has women earning 77 cents on the dollar compared to men. data and there are a number of factors that contribute to the gap. Women more often take time out for child care, and when they re-enter the work force, their compensa tion lags behind their male peers. Women like nursing and education, and in lowerpaid service jobs, which skew the num bers. President Obama signed two executive orders that ban federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their pay with other workers, and require data from companies doing business with the federal government reporting the gen der and racial breakdown of salaries. Its amazing in this day and time that discrepancies like these exist, and that it takes a presidential directive for employ ers to end gender bias. Discrimination against women has never been given the same impor tance as other mi norities, going back to Lincoln, but that may be ending. For mer President Jimmy Carter, a champion of human rights when he was in the White House, writes in his new book, A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power, that no group has been so perse cuted worldwide as women. Hillary Clinton said recently that the double standard for women still exists, and as secretary of state, she made wom ens rights a centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy. If she runs for president, which ap pears likely, gender and gender-related is sues will be thrust into the forefront of the campaign. There are many ways to enshrine dis crimination against women, even among the well-meaning who cloak their bias in chivalry, or paternalism, and pat them selves on the back thinking theyre doing the right thing. In 2008, when Clinton ran in the Democratic primaries, she encoun tered blatant sexism when a couple guys at a rally yelled Iron My Shirt. The out burst was such a throwback to the days of, Me Tarzan, You Jane, that the backlash helped her. Sexism 2016-style will likely be more complicated. A lot of people, more men than women, think the U.S. is close to achieving gender parity. After all men are now entitled in many workplaces to pater nity leave and some are equal partners in caring for their children. There has been measurable progress. There is no groundswell to bring back the Equal Rights Amendment, which was shelved in 1982 after failing to pass in the olyn Maloney, D-N.Y., has re-introduced the ERA nine times since 1997, most re cently last year. She remains hopeful that Americans will wake up to the fact that this most obvious inequality between the sexes should be enshrined in the Constitu tion.

JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South When I was about 10 or 11 years old, I spent the night on a houseboat with my father and his friend Greasy Gaskin. The two of them were evening and the follow ing morning. This was during hunting season, so I got to bring Dad dys old Remington .22 and a brand new box of bullets. The plan was for me to shoot squirrels while we were leaving, I leaned over the box of shells fell out of my shirt pocket and went deep to the bottom of the Apalachicola River. It was one of the worst trage dies I had experienced up to that point in my young life. Retrieving the lost bullets was impossible, so I turned the houseboat upside down, looked through the sludge in the bot tom of the boat. Im sure there were tens of millions of .22 bul lets in the world, but I would for a handful. Who knew that I would face the same issue for different reasons all these years later? At the start of this past sea son, however, I went in a Pen sacola sporting goods store and the clerk actually laughed out loud when I asked for .22s. He said that they sold out as soon as they came out of the stock room and if I wanted any, Id have to come stand in line on the day they arrived. I checked with other stores and got the same story. You over here. So every time I thought about going squirrel hunting this year, I changed my mind because bullets are apparently too rare and valuable to waste on a mere squirrel. Not to mention that I might have to sight in the scope, which would cost me even more of my precious ammo. Ive got about 40 or 50 rounds left, but Im thinking I ought to hold onto them as a retirement investment. Pardon my disbelief, but I the idea that one of the most common rounds ever made is suddenly in short supply. And the best reason anybody can come up with is that people are hoarding them. Why? Im told its because people believe they are in short supply, so theyre buy ing them up as fast as they can. Which means, of course, that they are hard to come by. Which leads people to believe theyre in short supply, so they hoard them. Its a vicious cycle. You see the prob lem here, right? Some of you are sitting on enough ammunition to launch a low-caliber World War III, while the rest of us are forced to dust off our old .410s and 20 gauges and dig birdshot out of squirrel carcasses. group, I have a suggestion: Start selling off part of your stock now, while you can still charge a premium. Im pretty sure that those of us in the second group would pay an extra buck or so last through next hunting sea son. However, I recommend you start now beforesomebody in China realizes theres a fortune ket with tons of cheap ammo. I hate spending money on products made by the worlds largest Communist regime, but box I dropped overboard nearly 40 years ago.

The Florida Fish and Wild life Conserva tion Commission (FWC) reminds the public to be aware that bears are now or soon will be on the move as they are leaving their winter dens.

Now is the time to expect bears to show up look ing for food, said Dave Telesco, who directs the FWCs bear management neighborhood, theyll move on.

As the cubs continue to grow, the family unit will roam farther and could be more visible to people. While black bears generally are not ag gressive, a mother bear may try to defend her cubs. Never intentionally approach a bear. Do not assume when you see a lone adult bear that there are no cubs, because the cubs may be hidden nearby. When walking dogs, keep them close and be aware of your surroundings. Dogs can trigger defensive behaviors from bears. Keep human sources of food, like garbage, birdseed and pet food, secure from bears so they wont wander into your neighborhood this spring looking for an easy meal. Use a bear-resistant trash can, build a bear-resistant trash can shed or modify your existing trash can with hardware to make it more resistant. Instructions for these methods, plus a video on how to use an electric fence to deter bears can be found at www.pin terest.com/myfwc/ bear-necessities/. If you do not have a bear-resis tant garbage can, consider building a bear-resistant trash can shed. In Collier County today, the FWC is partner ing with local Boy Scout volunteers to build sheds that will deter bears from accessing garbage. The FWC received a grant from the Wildlife Foundation of Florida, using proceeds from the Con serve Wildlife license plate, to build and install 70 bear-resistant wooden trash can sheds for residents of two East Naples mobile home parks, who have no other way to keep their garbage away from bears. As females and cubs increase their movements this time of year, they also increase the number of roads they cross. For the safety of yourself and bears, remember to slow down when driving, particularly on rural highways at dawn or dusk. Watch for road signs identifying bear crossing areas. Over 200 Florida bears were killed after being hit by ve hicles in 2013. Springtime sparks activity for Florida black bears and cubs

Page 16 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL APRIL 16, 2014 LCHS BASEBALL Going into Spring Break the young Liberty County Baseball team was struggling with only 4 wins and 8 losses. After losing eight seniors from last years District Championship team, everyone had expected this to be a rebuilding year, but the talent was there to put together a good solid sea son. It seems that Spring Break was just what the Bulldogs needed to get this season turned around and headed in the right direction. The Bulldogs have gone 8-2 since the break and are the number 2 seed headed into the Dis trict Tournament next week at South Walton High School. The season turned on a 7-6 extra inning win against Hooper Academy out of Birming ham, AL, at Chipola College.

Following a loss to Port St Joe in the next game, Liberty County faced the number one team in the District, Bozeman High School. The Bull dogs knocked off the previously unbeaten Bucs 7-6 in extra innings. Hunter Jacobs pitched all eight innings for the win. The Bulldogs were led at the plate by Freshman Alex Gonzalez, 2-2 with 2 doubles, Noah Davis 2-2 with 2 runs and Hunt er Jacobs 2-4 with 2 runs. The Bulldogs hosted 5A Wakulla and lost to the War Eagles, 16-6, in a game that was tied 6-6 going into the top of the 6th inning. The Bulldogs had to put the Wakulla loss be hind them as they faced a tough week with 6 games in 7 days. The team responded by reeling off 6 straight wins. Liberty County started this tough stretch facing Sneads at home. Hunter Ja cobs pitched a one hitter for the 12-0 win. The Bulldogs bats really came alive against the Pi rates pitchers.

On Saturday, April 12 the Bulldogs returned home for a highly anticipated game against the Aucilla Christian Warriors, coached by former Bulldog Thornton Davis. In the match up of the two coaching brothers, Tim Davis came out on top 14-4. The game was much closer than the score indicates as the Bulldogs plated 7 runs in the bottom of the 6th to break open a 7-4 game. Hunter Jacobs picked up the win on the mound for Liberty County. The Bulldogs were led at the plate by William Hayes, 3-4 with a double and 3 RBIs, Monroe Hinson was 3-4 with a double and 2 RBIs, Micah McCaskill was 3-5 with a double Alex Gonzalez was 2-3 with a double and 3 RBis, and Hunter Jacobs went 2-4.

Defensively, the Bulldogs are playing much bet ter, limiting errors and making key plays at cru cial times in the ballgames. Offensively, unlike earlier in the season, there are no easy outs in the line-up as the Bulldogs are maturing at the plate as well. One fan noted after the victory over Bay High that this has become a really fun team to watch play the game,noting how much the team has come together over the course of the season.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd. I had quite a weekend planned (par ties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him as he crawled around look ing for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said, Those guys are jerks. They really should get lives. He looked at me and said, Hey thanks! There was a big smile on his face. It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude. I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived. As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before. He said he had gone to private school before now. I would have never hung out with a private school kid before. We talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books. He turned out to be a pretty cool kid. I asked him if he wanted to play a little football with my friends. He said yes. We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought the same of him. Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again. I stopped him and said, Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday! He just laughed and handed me half the books. Over the next four years, Kyle and I be came best friends. When we were seniors we began to think about college. Kyle de cided on Georgetown and I was going to Duke. I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem. He was going to be a doctor and I was going for business on a football scholarship. Kyle was valedictorian of our class. I teased him all the time about being a nerd. He had to prepare a speech for gradua tion. I was so glad it wasn't me having to get up there and speak Graduation day. I saw Kyle, he looked great. He was one of those guys that really found himself ally looked good in glasses. He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him. Boy, sometimes I was jealous! Today was one of those days. I could see that he was nervous about his speech. So, I smacked him on the back and said, Hey, big guy, you'll be great! He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled. Thanks, he said. As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began, Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years. Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach... but mostly your friends. I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them. I am going to tell you a story. I just looked at my friend with disbelief planned to kill himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn't have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home. He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile. Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable... I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment. I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize its depth. Never underestimate the power of your actions...with one small ges ture you can change a person's life. For better or for worse. God puts us all in each others lives to impact one another in some way. Look for God in others. Please take the time to read this. Very powerful... SINCERELY, Ricky Miller AND THE STAFF OF RAHAL-MILLER

Happy Easter.The Calhoun Liberty Journal and CLJNews.com KEEPING YOU SAFESharing the road with motorcyclists As the weather warms up, more and more motorcycleriding Floridians take to the roads. As your Sheriff, I want to remind drivers of vehicles and motorcycles of some important tips on safely sharing the road: Motorists need to be aware of how their actions can impact the safety of motorcyclists and learn to share the road safely with motorcyclists. A large portion of motorcycle crashes involve two key components: poor speed and spatial judgment of other drivers and poor motorcyclist conspicuity. Safety Tips for Motorists Search the traffic around you constantly and expect to see motorcycles. Check your blind spots before changing lanes or merging, especially in heavy Double-check traffic at intersections before you turn or pull out. Motorcycles can easily be hidden in traffic. Look for a helmet above, tires below, or a shadow alongside a vehicle that you cant see around. Leave at least a four-second distance between your car and a motorcycle in front of you. Note when a motorcycle passes a point in the road. If your vehicle passes the same point in less than four seconds, youre following too closely. When passing a motorcycle, give a full lane to the motorcycle. Do not share lanes! Keep a watchful eye at all times. Individual motorcycles may blend into a larger group and may be closer than you think. Watch out when turning left because most crashes between cars and motorcycles occur involve left turns at intersections. Stay attentive and focused because distracted driving is a major cause of car-motorcycle crashes. Make sure to always signal when changing lanes to ensure the motorcycle rider knows what action you intend to take. Remember that failing to yield right of way can result in the death or serious injury of a motorcyclist. Make sure to observe and signals. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation web site provides information for Car Drivers on video instruction, and additional resources on how to safely share the road with motorcyclists.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL APRIL 16, 2014 WASHING TON Equal pay for equal work is an age-old rallying cry that resonates as strongly today as it did when the suffragists invoked the phrase. Join the union, girls, and together say Equal Pay for Equal Work, exhorted Susan B. Anthony, who led the drive to gain women the vote when Lincoln was president. Lincoln signed the 13th amendment in 1865, au thorizing the vote for male former slaves and newly naturalized male immigrants, privately assuring suffrage leaders women would get their turn. It would take 55 years. Lincoln was assassinated before he could keep his promise if he ever intended to, and Anthony died before her dream was realized with the passage of the 19th amendment ex panding voting rights to women. Womens rights advocates are still work comes to work and wages. With women a key demographic in the upcoming midterm elections, Democrats are pressing ahead with various measures to highlight the inequality that has women earning 77 cents on the dollar compared to men. data and there are a number of factors that contribute to the gap. Women more often take time out for child care, and when they re-enter the work force, their compensation lags behind their male peers. Women like nursing and education, and in lowerpaid service jobs, which skew the num bers. President Obama signed two executive orders that ban federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their pay with other workers, and require data from companies doing business with the federal government reporting the gender and racial breakdown of salaries. Its amazing in this day and time that discrepancies like these exist, and that it takes a presidential directive for employ ers to end gender bias. Discrimination against women has never been given the same impor tance as other minorities, going back to Lincoln, but that may be ending. For mer President Jimmy Carter, a champion of human rights when he was in the White House, writes in his new book, A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power, that no group has been so perse cuted worldwide as women. Hillary Clinton said recently that the double standard for women still exists, and as secretary of state, she made wom ens rights a centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy. If she runs for president, which appears likely, gender and gender-related is sues will be thrust into the forefront of the campaign. There are many ways to enshrine discrimination against women, even among the well-meaning who cloak their bias in chivalry, or paternalism, and pat them selves on the back thinking theyre doing the right thing. In 2008, when Clinton ran in the Democratic primaries, she encoun tered blatant sexism when a couple guys at a rally yelled Iron My Shirt. The outburst was such a throwback to the days of, Me Tarzan, You Jane, that the backlash helped her. Sexism 2016-style will likely be more complicated. A lot of people, more men than women, think the U.S. is close to achieving gender parity. After all men are now entitled in many workplaces to pater nity leave and some are equal partners in caring for their children. There has been measurable progress. There is no groundswell to bring back the Equal Rights Amendment, which was shelved in 1982 after failing to pass in the olyn Maloney, D-N.Y., has re-introduced the ERA nine times since 1997, most re cently last year. She remains hopeful that Americans will wake up to the fact that this most obvious inequality between the sexes should be enshrined in the Constitution.Women the worlds most persecuted people COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.Congratulations to our pal Stephen Colbert, who will be taking over for David Letterman next year.

JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South When I was about 10 or 11 years old, I spent the night on a houseboat with my father and his friend Greasy Gaskin. The two of them were evening and the following morning. This was during hunting season, so I got to bring Dad dys old Remington .22 and a brand new box of bullets. The plan was for me to shoot squirrels while we were leaving, I leaned over the box of shells fell out of my shirt pocket and went deep to the bottom of the Apalachicola River. It was one of the worst trage dies I had experienced up to that point in my young life. Retrieving the lost bullets was impossible, so I turned the houseboat upside down, looked through the sludge in the bot tom of the boat. Im sure there were tens of millions of .22 bul lets in the world, but I would for a handful. Who knew that I would face the same issue for different reasons all these years later? At the start of this past sea son, however, I went in a Pensacola sporting goods store and the clerk actually laughed out loud when I asked for .22s. He said that they sold out as soon as they came out of the stock room and if I wanted any, Id have to come stand in line on the day they arrived. I checked with other stores and got the same story. You over here. So every time I thought about going squirrel hunting this year, I changed my mind because bullets are apparently too rare and valuable to waste on a mere squirrel. Not to mention that I might have to sight in the scope, which would cost me even more of my precious ammo. Ive got about 40 or 50 rounds left, but Im thinking I ought to hold onto them as a retirement investment. Pardon my disbelief, but I the idea that one of the most common rounds ever made is suddenly in short supply. And the best reason anybody can come up with is that people are hoarding them. Why? Im told its because people believe they are in short supply, so theyre buying them up as fast as they can. Which means, of course, that they are hard to come by. Which leads people to believe theyre in short supply, so they hoard them. Its a vicious cycle. You see the problem here, right? Some of you are sitting on enough ammunition to launch a low-caliber World War III, while the rest of us are forced to dust off our old .410s and 20 gauges and dig birdshot out of squirrel carcasses. group, I have a suggestion: Start selling off part of your stock now, while you can still charge a premium. Im pretty sure that those of us in the second group would pay an extra buck or so last through next hunting sea son. However, I recommend you start now beforesomebody in China realizes theres a fortune ket with tons of cheap ammo.

His columns can also be found on his blog, outdoorsdownsouth.com.The Florida Fish and Wild life Conserva tion Commission (FWC) reminds the public to be aware that bears are now or soon will be on the move as they are leaving their winter dens. There are impor tant things people can do over the next few months to reduce negative interactions with Floridas largest land mammal. Now is the time to expect bears to show up look ing for food, said Dave Telesco, who directs the FWCs bear management neighborhood, theyll move on. Female bears that gave birth to cubs that were only 12 ounces in January are beginning to move around with their babies, which are now around 5 pounds. As the cubs continue to grow, the family unit will roam farther and could be more visible to people. While black bears generally are not ag gressive, a mother bear may try to defend her cubs. Never intentionally approach a bear. Do not assume when you see a lone adult bear that there are no cubs, because the cubs may be hidden nearby. When walking dogs, keep them close and be aware of your surroundings. Dogs can trigger defensive behaviors from bears. Keep human sources of food, like garbage, birdseed and pet food, secure from bears so they wont wander into your neighborhood this spring looking for an easy meal. Use a bear-resistant trash can, build a bear-resistant trash can shed or modify your existing trash can with hardware to make it more resistant. Instructions for these methods, plus a video on how to use an electric fence to deter bears can be found at www.pinterest.com/myfwc/ bear-necessities/. If you do not have a bear-resis tant garbage can, consider building a bear-resistant trash can shed. In Collier County today, the FWC is partner ing with local Boy Scout volunteers to build sheds that will deter bears from accessing garbage. The FWC received a grant from the Wildlife Foundation of Florida, using proceeds from the Con serve Wildlife license plate, to build and install 70 bear-resistant wooden trash can sheds for residents of two East Naples mobile home parks, who have no other way to keep their garbage away from bears. As females and cubs increase their movements this time of year, they also increase the number of roads they cross. For the safety of yourself and bears, remember to slow down when driving, particularly on rural highways at dawn or dusk. Watch for road signs identifying bear crossing areas. Over 200 Florida bears were killed after being hit by ve hicles in 2013. Springtime sparks activity for Florida black bears and cubs

Page 16 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL APRIL 16, 2014 LCHS BASEBALL Going into Spring Break the young Liberty County Baseball team was struggling with only 4 wins and 8 losses. After losing eight seniors from last years District Championship team, everyone had expected this to be a rebuilding year, but the talent was there to put together a good solid season. It seems that Spring Break was just what the Bulldogs needed to get this season turned around and headed in the right direction. The Bulldogs have gone 8-2 since the break and are the number 2 seed headed into the Dis trict Tournament next week at South Walton High School. The season turned on a 7-6 extra inning win against Hooper Academy out of Birming ham, AL, at Chipola College. Trailing 6-1 going into the bottom of the 7th inning, the Bulldogs plated 5 runs to tie the game. After three walks and a bunt single by Hunter Jacobs, Micah Mc Caskill hit a basses loaded triple to tie the game 6-6. Monroe Hinson led off the Bulldogs 8th inning with a single, followed by two walks. A passed ball allowed Hinson to score giving the Bulldogs the win. McCaskill also picked up the win on the mound. Following a loss to Port St Joe in the next game, Liberty County faced the number one team in the District, Bozeman High School. The Bulldogs knocked off the previously unbeaten Bucs 7-6 in extra innings. Hunter Jacobs pitched all eight innings for the win. The Bulldogs were led at the plate by Freshman Alex Gonzalez, 2-2 with 2 doubles, Noah Davis 2-2 with 2 runs and Hunter Jacobs 2-4 with 2 runs. The Bulldogs hosted 5A Wakulla and lost to the War Eagles, 16-6, in a game that was tied 6-6 going into the top of the 6th inning. The Bulldogs had to put the Wakulla loss behind them as they faced a tough week with 6 games in 7 days. The team responded by reeling off 6 straight wins. Liberty County started this tough stretch facing Sneads at home. Hunter Ja cobs pitched a one hitter for the 12-0 win. The Bulldogs bats really came alive against the Pi rates pitchers. Garrett Swier was 3-3 with a 2 run homerun, a double and 4 RBIs, Alex Gonzalez was 2-2, William Hayes went 2-3 with a double and 3 RBIs, Micah McCaskill was 2-3 and Hunt er Jacobs was 2-4 with 2 RBIs.

The Bull dogs and the Seahawks entered the games tied in the District at 5-2. Micah McCaskill picked up Liberty County was led at the plate by Hunter Jacobs, 3-4 with 2 runs scored, Micah McCaskill 2-3, and Alex Gonzalez 2-3 with 3 RBIs. In the second game of the doubleheader, Noah Davis picked up the 9-4 win on a strong pitching per formance. Hunter Jacobs had a 2 RBI triple in the 3rd inning. Davis added a solo homerun in the 4th to open up a 5-2 lead. Micah McCaskill had a 2 RBI double in the 6th inning as the Bulldogs extended their lead to 8-2. Brodie Holland scored 3 runs for the Bulldogs. Chris Lynn came in to pitch and closed the game for Liberty County in the 7th.

The Bulldogs were led at the plate by Garrett Swier, 4-5 with 3 doubles, Ken Thompson went 2-2 with a double, Micah McCaskill was 2-3 with a double, Lee Lowery and Will Hosford were both 2-3. On Saturday, April 12 the Bulldogs returned home for a highly anticipated game against the Aucilla Christian Warriors, coached by former Bulldog Thornton Davis. In the match up of the two coaching brothers, Tim Davis came out on top 14-4. The game was much closer than the score indicates as the Bulldogs plated 7 runs in the bottom of the 6th to break open a 7-4 game. Hunter Jacobs picked up the win on the mound for Liberty County. The Bulldogs were led at the plate by William Hayes, 3-4 with a double and 3 RBIs, Monroe Hinson was 3-4 with a double and 2 RBIs, Micah McCaskill was 3-5 with a double Alex Gonzalez was 2-3 with a double and 3 RBis, and Hunter Jacobs went 2-4.

The Bulldogs looked to avenge an early season 5-0 loss, that also was there lowest offensive output of the season. Liberty County picked up its sixth straight win in impressive fashion with a 9-1 win over the 5A Tornadoes. Sophomore Mi cah McCaskill picked up the win on the mound for the Bulldogs striking out 10 while giving up 3 hits. Offensively, eight batters combined for 10 hits and 9 runs, led by McCaskill with 3 hits. The Bulldogs are coming together at just the right time. Throughout the line-up the players are stepping up when the team needs them. On a team that had no returning pitchers, the pitching staff of Hunter Jacobs, Noah Davis, and Micah McCaskill have performed exceptionally well. Defensively, the Bulldogs are playing much better, limiting errors and making key plays at crucial times in the ballgames. Offensively, unlike earlier in the season, there are no easy outs in the line-up as the Bulldogs are maturing at the plate as well. One fan noted after the victory over Bay High that this has become a really fun team to watch play the game,noting how much the team has come together over the course of the season. The Bulldogs will travel to Aucilla Thursday, April 17 to close out their regular season followed by the District Tournament in South Walton start ing Tuesday, April 22.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not not perish, but have everlasting life. J ohn 3:16 One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd. I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said, Those guys are jerks. They really should get lives. He looked at me and said, Hey thanks! There was a big smile on his face. It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude. I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived. As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before. He said he had gone to private school before now. I would have never hung out with a private school kid before. We talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books. He turned out to be a pretty cool kid. I asked him if he wanted to play a little football with my friends. He said yes. We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought the same of him. Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again. I stopped him and said, Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday! He just laughed and handed me half the books. Over the next four years, Kyle and I be came best friends. When we were seniors we began to think about college. Kyle de cided on Georgetown and I was going to Duke. I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem. He was going to be a doctor and I was going for business on a football scholarship. Kyle was valedictorian of our class. I teased him all the time about being a nerd. He had to prepare a speech for gradua tion. I was so glad it wasn't me having to get up there and speak Graduation day. I saw Kyle, he looked great. He was one of those guys that really found himself ally looked good in glasses. He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him. Boy, sometimes I was jealous! Today was one of those days. I could see that he was nervous about his speech. So, I smacked him on the back and said, Hey, big guy, you'll be great! He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled. Thanks, he said. As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began, Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years. Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach... but mostly your friends. I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them. I am going to tell you a story. I just looked at my friend with disbelief planned to kill himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn't have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home. He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile. Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable... I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment. I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize its depth.Never underestimate the power of your actions...with one small gesture you can change a person's life. For better or for worse. God puts us all in each others lives to impact one another in some way. Look for God in others. Please take the time to read this. Very powerful...SINCERELY, Ricky Miller AND THE STAFF OF RAHAL-MILLER
