Deputies who responded to a call about a domestic disturbance at a trailer park last Wednesday saw through the windshield of a truck and noticed that the woman at the residence had marks on her throat indicating someone had grabbed her. She told them it was the result of an argument between her and her boyfriend, Jamie Parker, 35, of Clarksville, after he got angry that she hadnt cooked french fries for him. During the argument, Parker broke the windshield of their truck and destroyed the furniture in their home, according to the victim. While there was a red-colored area on the side of her throat, she denied that he had choked her although she acknowledged they had struggled before she broke free. The victim would not give a statement nor would she allow her injuries to be photographed as evidence, according to the event report. Photos were taken of the damage to the home and the broken windshield. Parker was charged with domestic battery.

AUGUST 20, 2014 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 From his list what has District 4 received the past 28 years? Where has our voice been??? District 4 is the only County Com mission District that has NO voting precincts. District 4 has the least number of paved roads yet it has the worst paved road in the county ( Hugh Creek High way ). Did 28 years of experience make the decision to pave the south end where there are no potholes before paving the north end that is all pot holes? (Has your vehicle been dam aged?) the north end has not been contracted contrary to what you are being told. 28 years should have led to the decision that you pave the worst 28 years of experience and $150 million per the ad. This equates to 30 million dollars for District 4. Can you see 30 million dollars worth of im provements in District 4s roads, lower etc? Where has our voice been? District 4 has the only park in the county with unsafe water for the chil dren to drink or restrooms to use. Has 28 years got the West Side Volunteer Fire Department sub sta Wrennie Moody Road? Has 28 years got the Scotts Ferry Road & SR 71 intersection, along Marysville School Road, and GU Park er Road subdivision? Grants are avail able for this infrastructure. This would lower your insurance rates. These are just two of the items I have been asked about as I have visited with you the past few months. I approve of and will work to get this achieved. Where has District 4s voice been? Was 28 years experience the rea son Mr. Grant was the only commis sioner voting NO on August 5, 2014 to lower the ad valorem tax on your property? Why would one vote not to lower your taxes? Does 28 years as a career politi cian really equal experience? Do you think terms for elected of you want?

There are also videos for students to watch such as the FWCs Living with Florida Black Bears. The Florida Black Bear Curriculum takes childrens curiosity about black bears into the classroom, where learn ing about black bears can improve kids skills in basics like reading, math, sci ence and problem solving, said Sarah Barrett with the FWCs black bear man agement program. Whenever FWC staff talks to kids about Florida black bears, the response is overwhelmingly positive because kids are eager to learn and ask great questions about bears. With more en counters today be tween people and bears in Florida than in the recent past, it is increasingly important for children to learn about the states bear population. The Florida Black Bear Curriculum was designed for children in grades 3-8 and has been in use since 1999, when it was created as a joint project of the FWC and Defenders of Wildlife.

JIMMY FALLON SETH MEYERS JIMMY FALLON CONAN OBRIEN JIMMY FALLON WASHINGTON The balance of power is changing in the Middle East, and the change is complicated. The key development is the emergence of Turkey and its longtime ad versary, the Kurds, as the major players holding back the bru tal al Qaeda offshoot, the Islamic State (for merly The Islamic State of Iraq and Levant known as ISIL), from taking more territory in Iraq. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan, Amer icas luke-warm NATO ally, has been moving his secular nation down an Islamic fundamentalist path and has, accordingly, been receptive to Syr ian rebels of all stripes in their effort to oust Syr ian President/Dictator Bashar al-Assad. Turkey funneled weapons to all of the anti-Assad groups, provided them a safe haven, and even medical care. Among those groups were al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. President Obama, on the other hand, went to the other extreme. He was unwilling to provide sig Syria on the grounds that he didnt know enough about them, and could not judge which, if any, were truly moderate. cently from his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in an interview with The Atlantic, for As it turned out, both Erdogan and Obama mis calculated, and both of them are now moving to correct their mistakes. Apparently, it had not oc curred to either of them that the Islamic State, comprised of Sunni Muslim jihadists, would si multaneously attack Syria and Iraq. The major ity (70 percent) of Iraqs people, like neighboring Irans, are Shiite Muslims, and the Sunni-Shiite antagonisms are rooted in centuries of mutual hatred, which is why the Islamic Nation not only covets territory, but demands that Shiites convert or pay exorbitant taxes or face execution. When the Islamic Nation recently swept into Iraq utilizing surrender-or-die Genghis Khan tac tics, the Iraqi Army initially melted away. Even not hold them. Kurds have controlled a semi-au tonomous region in northern Iraq ever since the U.S.-led Desert Storm coalition ousted Iraqs then dictator, Saddam Hus seins forces from Ku wait and Kurdistan in 1991. Meanwhile, the Kurds have continued to wage a low-level guerrilla war in Tur key. And it is now the Kurds, on unfriendly terms with the Iraqi central government, neighbor ing Iran, Turkey, and Syria, who are providing the balance-of-power catalyst in the region. As defacto and loyal U.S. allies, Obama has he responded with airpower and supplies in an operation resembling the limited U.S. support of the Northern Alliance that ousted the Taliban from Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11. Even the Iraqi government applauded the Kurds efforts against nally reached out to the Kurds in a rapprochement that will undoubtedly result in the establishment of Kurdistan as a separate state carved out of Iraq and Turkey. Like Obama, Erdogan has turned to the Pesh merga as the primary means of thwarting the Is lamic State, and over the last week, he moved to aid them by cutting off supplies to the Islamic State, presumably in response to pressure from the U.S. and other NATO allies. Iran, another big player in the region, has so far been playing a responsible role toward Iraq by withdrawing its support of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who ran a Shiites-only govern ment, excluding Sunnis from meaningful positions and sowing distrust among Iraqs minority ethnici ties. He has been replaced by Haider al-Abadi, cur rently deputy Parliament speaker. Key to continu ing U.S. aid is evidence that the Iraqi government is reaching out to include all elements in the new government, lest disenchanted Sunnis seek solace with terrorists. In the end, the Islamic State invasion of Iraq is likely to moderate Erdogans view of mixing re ligion and politics. But the real winners are the Kurds because their Peshmerga has effectively be come the coalition leader in the war, which means their long-sought prize of statehood is sure to be their reward.

This has been the best year of frogging in 20 years, he said. You go to gigging. Another good method: Just drop your son off and make him do it, he said about 21-year-old Tyler Womble. Ive trained him good. He and a friend recently came out of the sloughs at Bloody Bluff with 102 frogs. What do you do with that many frogs? I give them to my mother (Shirley Womble) and we have cookouts at church and for family. When he and his sister Charlene, were growing up in the Sheltons Community of Altha she refused to eat frog legs. He recalls one day that she came home and grabbed sone food off the counter in the kitchen where their mother was cooking. After taking a few bites she told her mother that it was the best chicken she ever had. Ray said their mother had to tell her, Baby girl, thats frogs, not chicken. Ray said he prefers them fried or grilled but a recent visitor from Okeechobee suggested he try them a different way. He told him to put them in the oven and bake them in cream of mushroom soup, he said. He said Florida River, Kennedy Creek and the Ochlocknee River areas are full of frogs for the taking right now. He estimates hes taken over 1,000 frogs in the past two-and-a-half months. It aint nothing but reneck food, he said. And he loves it. Ray Womble his edible treasures from the sloughs of Liberty County.

All of those the person if theyve ever been frog-gigging. his face. But the real-deal redneck will respond with something like, We got about 50 on the river week before last. vorite food ever, so he had a vested interest in and clean them. The concept is pretty simple: Get a boat, light and a gig. When its good and dark, ease along the banks of a pond, lake or river. Shine enough to see the whole body and spear the frog. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. Do this accurately about 25 to 30 times and youve got enough frog legs to feed a large simple doesnt mean its always easy. For one thing, humans arent the bullfrogs only predator. In fact, theyre like the french fries of the swamp. Just about everything that eats anything also eats frogs. Included in that list are gators and snakes (winners of natures watch where you put your feet and hands. And even though it can be hot at night in a Florida ter to cool off. Another issue is that spearing a frog with a gig can be harder than you think. You want a long gig pole so that you can get to the frogs in hard to reach spots. But what you gain in reach, you lose in steadiness. Thats especially true on a small boat with a couple of people in it. Speaking of extra people, it helps to have someone with you to hold the light. Headlamps frogs and you wont have to guess whether thats a water snake or a cottonmouth on the branch youre drifting toward. Even after youve speared the frog, things can still go wrong. You might think hes take him off the gig. If you arent careful do And its generally considered poor form to gig the same frog twice. Cleaning the frog is pretty straight forward.

We are going to have to ers that played a major role in our success, he said. Most notably we will be the offensive line. We feel like we have the right players in place but it may take a few weeks of experience for the offense to click. Gone also are most of the skill personnel on the offen sive side of the ball including of the top six receivers and the top seven point leaders. The Tigers will return only playing time on offense in QB Dylan Lee and TE Tripp Tay lor. Lee will also take over the punting and newcomer Derek Eberly will handle the place kicking duties. As the Tigers look to win early in the season they will have to rely on their defense to keep games close. The defense will return six play ers with major experience. Along with Lee and Taylor, leading tackler LB Anthony Wyrick will be back with DT Stephen Mathews, CB Malac Johnson and DB Nathan Dun ham.

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 toured museums; Arlington National Cemetery; the Iwo Jima Monument; the U. S. Capitol area; the mall area; the Ko rean, Lincoln, Vietnam, FDR, Jefferson, Martin Luther King Jr. and World War II Memorials; Mt. Vernon; and the National Cathedral. They also saw the U.S. Marine Corps Sunset Parade; attended a boat cruise and dance on the Potomac River; and ended their trip with a visit to the Kennedy Center to see a performance of The Lion King. A highlight of the trip was the National Youth Day rally, where they joined more than 1,600 students representing electric cooperatives from 43 states a record number. We were proud to have McKenna and Jessie representing Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative in Washington and proud of Breanna for winning the essay contest. Over and over again, the Youth Tour trip has been referred to as the trip of a lifetime, and we hope that it truly was for these exceptional students, GCEC Manager of Marketing and Communica tion 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 ef forts 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. Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative is part of the Touch stone Energy national alliance of local, consumerowned electric cooperatives. GCEC employees serve approximately 20,000 meters and 2,600 miles of line in Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson, Walton and Washington counties and in the municipalities of Wewahitchka, Ebro, White City, Fountain and Southport.
CALHOUN COUNTY Calhoun County Superintendent of Schools Ralph Yoder announced that Janet Tomlinson was recently recognized as the recipient of the Make Their Day Better award. This monthly award was instituted by Superinten dent Yoder to recognize individuals that make a difference in the day of fellow staff members, students and/or parents. She has been working for the Calhoun County School Board for ten years. Currently, she is employed at Blountstown Elementary School as a third grade teacher. In their nomination, one of her col leagues wrote the following: A great teacher impacts the lives of his or her students. A phenomenal teacher impacts not only the lives of his or her students, but the community as well. BES for several years. Always the dedi cated educator, I have seen her spend countless hours after the school bell has rang dismissing students, working tirelessly in her classroom preparing for Janet second. Last year, Janet approached the teach ers at BES about forming a team for the Cal houn-Liberty Re lay for Life. As team captain, Janet kept everything organized and running smoothly. It came as no surprise that she was asked to become a committee member for the Calhoun-Liberty Relay for Life chairing the Survivors Dinner. Traditionally, the Survivors Dinner was held under a pavilion with picnic tables. However, this year as the Sur vivors Chair, Janet wanted to make everyone. Her vision was an elegant setting basking in candlelight with mu sic wafting on the breeze. Through her hard work and dedication she was able to make that vision come true. Under a tent, she was able to transform a simple spot in the park to a garden of life in which the survivors were able to not only enjoy each others company, but celebrate one another. There were so many compliments from the Survivors and others how well put together and beautiful the dinner was. Much like the students in her Janet second. As a survivor her self, Janet should have been sitting among the survivors celebrating. However, it was more important to her to see that they were comfortable, happy, and full! It was not until the last survivor left the dinner that Janet sat down to eat. Even then, I am pretty sure she was working. As the Chair for how an educator not only touch the lives of students, but the lives of others in her community. Pam Bozeman, Principal of Blount stown Elementary School stated, Mrs. Tomlinson is an asset to Blountstown Elementary School. Her tireless effort to invest not only into the lives of our students but also into our community is evident by this nomination. Congratulations to Mrs. Tomlinson as she works daily to make others days better.
