Soldiers had already stormed the shores at Normandy, France, where their mission was to form a beachhead to link the Allied Invasion forces. It is believed that between 2,500 and 3,000 U.S., Canadian and British soldiers died on D-Day. Their efforts made it possible to establish openings in the German defenses and get troops into France. That action is credited with starting the push across Europe that resulted in Germanys defeat in World War II. Liberty County native Colin Moore remembers climbing down from a rope ladder dangling off a troop carrier ship with the 12 men in the 749th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Gun Battalion. The ship stopped in water about eight foot deep, he said. I had my gun on my shoulder and everything I owned in a everything as he climbed down, hit the water and got to the beach. When he got onshore he saw hundreds of corpses being covered up with sand. The bodies would be retrieved later and reburied. German prisoners of war were put to work digging temporary graves. After one soldier was lowered into the sand, Moore saw one of the POWs spit on the by knocking him in the head, said Moore. Moore was 23 when he joined the Army in August of 1942.

While waiting there, he was put to work in up and saw a familiar face coming down the line serving of food on his plate before Larkins looked up and recognized him.

The United States Postal Service is warning residents about fake emails using their name. The messages claim to be alerts about an undelivered package, but they really carry a virus.

Typically, these viruses phish for personal and banking information on your machine. Like all scams, this one has many variations. Victims have reported receiving phone calls also claiming to alert you to an undelivered package. Instead of a virus, scammers try to phish for personal and banking information. The scam isn't even limited to the USPS; Canada Post was targeted by a similar scam. Tips to Avoid Email Scams: Spot common email scams by following these tips: make emails appear to come from a reputable source. Just because it looks like an "@usps. com" address does not mean it's safe. links or attachments. As always, do not click designed to look like they've originated from your computer. If you see a pop-up that looks like an anti-virus software but warns extreme level of urgency, it may be a scam. Scam emails often are riddled with typos. emails try to get you to act before you think by creating a sense of urgency. Don't fall for it.

BROKER PH (813) 253-3258 by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor Known by some as The King of Blountstown, Dal las Nookie Ammons was a roving landmark as he peddled through town with his best buddy sitting in a basket hanging from the handlebars of his bi cycle. Nookie and the little dog he called Mark Shuler were hard to miss but even if you didnt see them, theres a chance Nookie would come up behind you to demand a dollar or ask you to buy him a coke. If you were foolish enough to decline to help him out, he would continue to ask until you realized it was really in your best interest to keep him happy. With his friends at Big Bend Sporting Goods, and his special guardian angel, Patricia WilliamsCauley, he always had someone to talk to, visit with and look out for him. His antics inspired the creation of the Dallas Nookie Ammons Fan Club on Facebook, which is la beled as being For everyone who has ever been called a cat the one and only Nookie. His age was always in question. His last birthday, on May 20, was celebrated as his 78th. But funeral home owner Marlon Peavy, who will be handling the funeral arrangements, said he has learned that Nookie was in fact born in 1930, which would make him 84. Peavy said Nookie was found dead at his home on Ray Avenue Tuesday morning. It is believed that he may have suffered a heart attack. A lot of people loved ole Nookie, Peavy said. Every time my son, Travis, went to Big neral home man and ask for money. Nookie was a part of the lives of several gen erations in Blountstown. He previously worked as a school janitor, helped out with the foot ball team and back in the 1970s, ran the projector at the old Blountstown DriveIn. Even those who got a good cussin when they failed to react quickly enough to his demand to buy him some chewing tobacco will no doubt feel the loss. And Mark Shuler, who has al ready found a new home with Nookies relatives, will surely miss his daily ride through town from his perch over the front wheel of his old friends bike. Nookie and his buddy were featured in a July 2010 story in The Journal. If you missed it, visit our website at and type Nookie in the search bar. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at this time but will be posted to the Journals website Remembering Nookie, the King of Blountstown

But there is another and more human litter. It extends in a thin little line, just like a highwater mark, for miles along the beach. This is the strewn personal gear, gear that will never be needed again, of those who fought and died to give us our entrance into Europe. Here in a jumbled row for mile on mile are sol diers packs. Here are socks and shoe polish, sewing kits, diaries, Bi bles and hand grenades. Here are the latest letters from home, with the ad dress on each one neatly razored out one of the security precautions en forced before the boys embarked. Here are toothbrushes and razors, and snapshots of families back home staring up at you from the sand. Here are pocket books, metal mirrors, ex tra trousers, and bloody, abandoned shoes. Here are broken-handled shov els, and portable radios smashed almost beyond recognition, and mine detectors twisted and ru ined. Here are torn pistol belts and canvas water and jumbled heaps of lifebelts. I picked up a pocket Bible with a sol diers name in it, and put it in my jacket. I carried it half a mile or so and then put it back down on the beach. I dont know why I picked it up, or why I put it back down. Soldiers carry strange things ashore with them. In every invasion youll hitting the beach at Hhour with a banjo slung over his shoulder. The most ironic piece of equipment marking our beach this beach of is a tennis racket that some soldier had brought along. It lies lonesomely on the sand, clamped in its rack, not a string bro ken. Two of the most domi nant items in the beach refuse are cigarets and writing paper. Each sol dier was issued a carton of cigarets just before he started. Today these cartons by the thousand, water-soaked and spilled out, mark the line of our Writing paper and air-mail envelopes come second. The boys had in tended to do a lot of writ ing in France.

He stays at the waters edge, near a boat that lies twisted and half sunk at the water line. He barks appealingly to every soldier who approaches, trots eagerly along with him for a few feet, and then, sensing himself un wanted in all this haste, runs back to wait in vain for his own people at his own empty boat. * Over and around this long thin line of personal anguish, fresh men to day are rushing vast sup plies to keep our armies pushing on into France. Other squads of men pick amidst the wreckage to salvage ammunition and equipment that are still usable. Men worked and slept on the beach for days be fore the last D-day vic tim was taken away for burial. I stepped over the form of one youngster whom I thought dead. But when I looked down I saw he was only sleep ing. He was very young, and very tired. He lay on one elbow, his hand suspended in the air about six inches from the ground. And in the palm of his hand he held a large, smooth rock. I stood and looked at him a long time. He seemed in his sleep to hold that rock lovingly, as though it were his last link with a vanishing world. I have no idea at all why he went to sleep with the rock in his hand, or what kept him from dropping it once he was asleep. It was just one of those little things without explanation that a person remembers for a long time. * The strong, swirling tides of the Normandy coastline shift the con tours of the sandy beach as they move in and out. They carry soldiers bod ies out to sea, and later they return them. They cover the corpses of he roes with sand, and then in their whims they un cover them.

It was such a great time for all of us to get together and socialize. We just can't say thank you nearly enough for all the volunteers that keep the Settlement open. Alice Ebersole was named our 2014 Volunteer of the Year. We had fabulous door prizes donated by: Blountstown Drugs, Oglesby Plants International, Carla Hand, Keith's Auto, Sandy Voss, Vicki Montford, Golden Pharmacy, Con nie's Kitchen, El Jalisco Restaurant, and Badcock's. The music was a special treat by Heritage Harmony, Sue Bradley and Peggy Cox. Most of our Board of Directors are the ones who cook the food and serve the volunteers. Thank you to Howard Johnson, Jr. for being in charge of this years banquet, and to David White for grilling all the chicken that was just beyond delicious. Board member Jeff Manager Janice Holley surely enjoyed giving out the door prizes. Willard and Linda Smith worked tirelessly to make sure everyone felt how much we appreciated their time and effort to keep the Settlement going. Local students set to depart Saturday for Rural Electric Youth Tour in Washington WEWAHITCHKA Breanna Clemmons, McK enna Waters and Jessie West will depart Saturday for Washington, D.C. for the Rural Electric Youth Tour. McKenna and Breanna are rising seniors at Wewa hitchka High School, and Jessie is a rising senior at Blountstown High School. McKenna and Jessie are eligible to go on the trip as winners of Gulf Coast Electric Cooperatives Youth Tour Contest. Each year, the Cooperative sponsors the contest for eleventh-graders whose parents or guardians are members of GCEC. Contestants are interviewed by a panel of three judges from the electric cooperative industry, and two winners are chosen to travel on an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. in June. Breanna won the statewide essay contest for chil dren and grandchildren of cooperative employees and trustees. While in Washington, the students are scheduled to tour museums; Arlington National Cemetery; the Iwo Jima Monument; the U.S. Capitol area; the mall area; the Korean, Lincoln, Vietnam, FDR, Jefferson and World War II Memorials; Mt. Vernon; and the National Cathedral. They are also slated to see the U.S. Marine Corps Sunset Parade; to attend a boat cruise and dance on the Potomac River; and are to end their trip with a visit to the Kennedy Center. A highlight of the trip will be the National Youth Day rally, where they will join approximately 1,500 other eleventh-grade students representing electric cooperatives from all over the United States. We are proud to have McKenna and Jessie representing Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative in Washington and proud of Breanna for winning the essay contest. We hope that they have a wonderful time on their trip, enjoying the sights and making new friendships, GCEC Manager of Marketing and Communication Kristin Evans said. The Washington, D.C. Youth Tour Program has been in existence since 1957 when co-ops sent students to Washington, D.C. to work during the summer. By 1964, the program was catching on, and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association began to coordinate the efforts of the co-ops. Since then, thousands of young people have experienced this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit our nations capitol and learn about our government.

A disease called late blight killed most of Irelands po tatoes, while today it costs Florida tomato farmers millions each year in lost yield, un marketable crop and control expenses. For more than a century, scientists thought the pathogen that caused late blight originated in Mexico. But a 2007 study it came from the South American Andes. UF plant pathology assistant professor Erica Goss wanted to clear up the confu sion and after analyzing sequenced genes from four strains of the pathogen, found ancestral relationships among them that point to Mexico as the origin. The pathogen is very good at over coming our management strategies, said Goss, a UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences faculty member. To come up with better solutions to late blight, we need to understand the genetic changes that allow it to become more aggressive. By understanding past changes, we can design new strategies that are more likely to be robust to future genetic changes. Goss and eight colleagues analyzed the genes of potato late-blight pathogens from around the world. Potato late blight, is caused by the pathogen phytophthora infestans. Scientists sequenced four genes from more than 100 phytophthora infestans samples, plus four closely re lated species, to tease out the pathogens origin. Knowing the origin provides insight into its genetic diversity and the ways it adapts to different environments, Goss said. The pathogen also moved from other re lated species to the potato late in the evolu tionary history of pota toes, she said, perhaps one reason potatoes are so susceptible to the ing a breeding-based solution to the disease The pathogen costs $6 billion a year glob ally between direct crop damage and spraying, she said. In Florida, it damages tomatoes far more than potatoes. Florida farmers lose millions each year due to late blight, said Gene McAvoy, Hendry County Extension director, who has monitored late blight in Southwest Florida for years. A late-blight pandemic in 2009 made the pathogen a household term in much of the eastern U.S. It made its way to the Northeast via tomatoes in big-box retailers. After planting the tomatoes, many home gardeners and organic pro ducers lost most, if not all, of their crop, Goss said. Just when we think were on top of it, a new strain shows up, she said. New strains have repeatedly appeared in the U.S. that are more aggressive or resistant to fungicides. This pathogen just keeps coming. Goss wrote the paper, published online by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, with scientists from eight other university and govern ment agencies. GAINESVILLE Scientists and growers can use a new genome database developed in part by University of Florida researchers to help make fruit trees more diseaseand pest-resistant and enhance crop quality. Researchers who study citrus, rosaceae and vaccin ium crops will be the primary users of the portal, said Mercy Olmstead, assistant professor of hor ticultural sciences at UFs Institute of Food and Agricul tural Sciences, but agricultural produc ers will also reap the Rosaceae include apples, cherries, peaches, straw berries, pears and ornamental roses. Vaccinium fruits include blueberries and cranberries. Olmstead, Fred Gmitter, a genetics and breeding professor at the Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred and Jim Olmstead, assistant professor of horticultural sciences, both also at UF/IFAS, helped create what they and other scientists are calling the Tree Fruit Genome Database Resources. Dorrie Main, associate professor of bioinformatics at Washington State University, leads the project. The portal, found at, will help explain the genetic database and show how the information can be used to grow better fruit, Mercy Olmstead said. The website provides data about 22 horticultural crops: almond, apple, apricot, blackberry, blueberry, cherry, clementine, cranberry, grapefruit, lemon, lime, mandarin, nectarine, orange, peach, pear, plum, pum melo, raspberry, rose, strawberry and tangerine. The site also features videos and articles that high light the role genomics, breeding and these databases play in solving industry problems in fruit production. Its important that growers and industry stakehold ers understand how these data can be used to solve sources of disease and pest resistance, she said. This website will help to connect the dots and show how scientists are taking genetic data and improving fruit varieties for sustainable production. The website also describes an upcoming project that Mains laboratory is developing the Growers Toolbox This resource will provide weather, soil and environ mental information to help growers decide which fruit varieties are most suited to their growing conditions. Researchers at UF/IFAS, Washington State, Clem son, North Carolina State and Cornell universities created the new website and will keep it updated. connect the dots varieties for sustain
