All the adults in their lives parents and grandpar ents, teachers and other school staff, youth lead ers, neighbors and many others have a role to play in providing this kind of support. When young people receive similar messages in all the settings where they live, learn and play, they are better prepared to respond safely and to use their voices in positive and powerful ways. Sheriff Glenn Kimbrel would like to remind you that adults can share sev eral strategies with young people who are targeted by cyberbullying or who witness it happening to others online: it is to stay calm and not react quickly out of anger or fear. Encourage kids to be aware of their thoughts and feelings before mov ing to action. to use the same hurtful tools as the person doing the bullying, emphasize that retaliating can make a situation much worse. Share with kids that in some situations, the best response may be no re sponse at all. Sometimes people are hoping for their targets to lose their cool and have a strong response so they can boast about this to oth ers. In the virtual world, this can mean that many, many other people might safe it may be important for kids to use their voice to respond publicly or pri vately.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL SEPTEMBER 10, 2014 COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. Labor Day is at least a week into the rearview mirror, so the white pants should be closeted away until next June. The kids are back at school, football has returned to the tube, and, even in Florida, the temperature has dropped a degree or two. In other words, elections are less than two months away. answers to which will illumi nate Florida politics like jacko-lanterns soon will light front porches. Is Rick Scott leading Charlie Crist by two or three points or is his lead now outside the mar gin of error? There has been one direct re lationship since Crist announced his candidacy last November: the more Scott and his allies have spent on television ads crit ical of the Democratic nominee, the further Crist has fallen in the polls. Crists approval rating is in the same toilet-bowl levels Scotts has been for most of the The three most recent polls have Scott minus two points, plus six points, and plus two points. These numbers raise the outside the margin of error. Why does this matter? Because Cristworld will tell you that it planned on and even modeled scenarios where it was down a point or two to Scott and then fought back. But if the Florida Chamber of Commerces poll showing Scott up six is accurate, Crist is in a place his strategists did not ex pect him to be. Theres less than a month be fore Floridas new election day when ballots are mailed to early voters. Crist needs pick up a point a week on Scott before those ballots are mailed. Fortu nately for Crist, this is mostly a zero-sum proposition. Unfortu nately for Crist, hes not yet been able to stop the slide hes been on since Scotts campaign went up on TV. Is John Morgan the Achilles Heel of the Amendment 2 cam paign? For months, it seemed like the campaign to legalize medical marijuana could do no wrong. Despite opposition from most of the states law enforcement community, most polls showed Amendment 2 headed to pas sage. Then The Rant happened. The Rant, in case you havent checked YouTube lately, is at torney John Morgans drunken, NSFW speech to a group of legal pot enthusiasts after Morgan de bated Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. Laced with F-bombs and nongone viral and threatens to do what no anti-marijuana advocate could do: keep Amendment 2 from receiving the 60 percent it needs at the ballot box. Yes, The Rant is that cringeworthy, almost surpassing Howard Deans infamous postelection scream. But its not the video that should most worry Amendment 2 supporters. Its that the controversy surrounding The Rant could sideline Morgan at the worst possible moment for the campaign: when the cam paign is running on fumes and needs a massive infusion of cash to combat what is expected to be a deluge of negative ads from the Sheldon Adelson-backed op position. Will Gwen Graham be na tional Democrats bright shining light? According to most political prognosticators, a GOP wave IS NOT developing at the national level, despite forecasts that Re publicans will take the U.S. Senate and expand their lead in the U.S. House. If that happens, there will be few victories for national Dems to celebrate in November. Gwen Graham could be one of those victories. The daughter of the iconic former U.S. senator and governor is deadlocked in a heated race against Tea Party incumbent Steve Southerland for the North Florida congres sional seat. One gets the feeling that unless something breaks the race open for either candidate, the winner will be whoever has the ball last. Were Graham to win and Crist to lose, look for her to be the partys standard bearer in any of the statewide races expected to be competitive in 2018. Will Senate President Desig nate Andy Gardiner spend mon ey to help Ellyn Bogdanoff knock off Maria Sachs? The math is simple. It takes 27 votes in the Florida Senate to overturn a gubernatorial veto. Right now, there are 26 Republi cans in the upper chamber. Were Crist to win, having a veto-proof majority in the Senate would be GOP. Yet Senate President Gar diner, to-date, has not appeared vote, which would come with Bogdanoffs defeating of Sachs. Privately, Gardiner has told Republican donors he has yet to see any indication that the seat is winnable. But that assessment has not kept Sen. Jack Latvala, who needs Bogdanoffs vote to become Senate President, from investing heavily in the Senate District 34 race. Meanwhile, ev ery Democratic operative and re source not already locked-down by the Crist campaign is being put to Sachs defense. Where are the black swans? In economics, black swans refer to events that come as a surprise, have a major effect, and are often inappropriately ra tionalized after the fact with the At a recent conference of Florida lobbyists, during which political consultants and strate gists of both stripes talked about what they expect to happen in November, there wasnt a black swan in sight. Republicans pre dicted Republicans would win, while Democrats said the same about their candidates. But in a state known for close elec tions and where Marco Rubio knocked off Crist and Scott up set Bill McCollum and then Alex Sink, black swans can be found will produce black swans?

DANIEL WILLIAMS PHOTO Are you looking for direction in your life? Do you need to be pointed in the right di rection? I might be your perfect partner! My name is Penelope. I am a beautiful pointer mix just over a year old. I was rescued from a local county shel ter by the amazing team at Alaqua Animal Refuge just before they were going to put me down. I was just a wee one, but the Alaqua team went right to work on me. They helped me learn to be a good girl and even enrolled me in the Unconditional Love program where I graduated with honors. I was a quick learner and easily mastered all of the basic commands. I am back at the refuge now and ready to staff tell me I am a smart, well-mannered young lady. I play well with other dogs and I have yet to meet a human or pet that I didn't love. I keep my kennel clean and I walk on a leash like a show dog! When the nice people at Alaqua visit me, I am atten tive to every word they speak. I am focused on pleasing them, and if they show me a point of interest, I "strike a pose", showing off my pointing skills. Just like my ances tors, I am even tempered, congenial, good with children, and would love to be part of a family. I will need a fenced yard, as I need space to run and play. Once I have had my by your side and provide you comfort, love, devotion, and protection. Adoptables Alaqua Animal Refuge is a no-kill animal refuge located in Northwest Florida.

Now, were in that awkward part of the year when about all anybody wants to do is hurry from one air-conditioned spot to another. This must be how the Yankees up in places like Buf falo feel about February and the snow. The good news for us is that it takes longer to heat to death than freeze, but still . Even the animals are over it now. My dog Pete keeps digging deeper and deeper permafrost layer. That means I have to fol he undermines the foundation to the house. On the upside, this is the only time of the year when I dont have to worry about cat prints on my black truck. What really keeps me going these days is col lege football, but not just because I like watch ing the Seminoles. Its also because football has always been the launch point for my favorite time of the year. The way my mind is wired, seeing a football bacon frying or a cake baking. You know some thing good is on the way; you just have to be pa tient. Heres how it works: No matter how hot it is, you know the begin ning of football season means dove hunting is just around the corner. And that means clean ing guns, buying shotgun shells and such. Sure, youre thinking about doves, but thats really just a precursor to what lies ahead. Once dove season is underway, you know that pumpkins and Halloween decoration arent far behind. Im not a big Halloween fan, but once tombstones, I know that November is almost here. Thats when things really start mov ing. On November 1, all I have to do is remember that my anniversary is the very next day. Once thats behind me, I can begin the long, slow countdown to Thanksgiving the kickoff of general gun season up here in Zone D. The start of hunting season launches my favorite time of the year. From No vember until the end of turkey season, and hope for a big buck or a big gobbler are moving up into the creeks. And Christmas time is just around the cor ner. (Like my mother, I start listening to Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving and dont stop until New Years.) The best part about all of this is that at some point, the oppressive summer heat is going to morning of the year. In some places, people suffer all winter and cel ebrate the beginning of spring. I guess Im one of signs of fall.

Psalm 147:3 Grady Allen Mears 1959 2014 If I knew itd be the last time that I would see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord your soul to keep. If I knew itd be the last time Id see you close the door Id give you hugs and kisses..then call you back for just one more. If I knew itd be the last time Id hear your voice give praise, Id videotape each precious word to hear it every day. If I knew it was the last time Id be there to share on your day, Id tell you about my Jesus and how He will join you on your way. Tomorrows not a promise -to either young or old alike, and today may be your last chance to hold your loved ones tight. And if youre waiting for tomorrow, why not do it right away? For if tomorrow never comes, youll surely regret the day... that you didnt take the extra time for a smile, a hug or a kiss. And were too busy to give someone their hearts last hopeful wish. Now hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear, TELL THEM that you love them and that you will always hold them dear. Take time to say Im sorry., Thank you. or Its Okay. So if tomorrow never comes... youll have no regrets about today! LOVE, MOM & DAD
