I will sit down with the records they have, put them in order, see where they are and where they need not there looking for a job. Im not there to protect anybodys job. Im there to look at the books. The Town Council recently decided to take a look into two separate jobs. One person will handle the daily duties while a second part-time employee will Jackie Smith, who served as town clerk for nearly seven years, was told she could reapply for the position if she wanted although it would mean less hours at a much-reduced salary. Town Council Chairman Michael Pappas does not accuse Smith of wrongdoing but said there was simply too much work for one person and they need issues with bills not being paid and problems getting documentation for the audit ready. When Attaway met with the town council last week, she told them, I dont want to get into your personalities and your politics. She said she wants recommendations for how they should proceed. Ill make it as quick as possible. Id like to get it all done by December.

WITH A LETTER TO THE EDITOR Write: The Calhoun-Liberty Journal P.O. Box 536, Bristol 32321 To the editor, Last Thursday evening, I attended a Liber ty County Commission Meeting that had been called to discuss school bus safety on State Road 65. The meeting was replete with dramatic histri onics and a sermon. This was all over a road that is mowed to the trees six months of the year. There are busier school bus routes in Liberty County where you cant mow anywhere near as wide a swath as the County Commission is de manding for State Road 65. This is due to the fact it would be on private property. With the childrens safety paramount, I would think that the County Commissioners would be in immedi ate negotiations with the land owners to buy or perhaps invoke imminent domain to acquire the needed land so as to satisfy the County Commis sioners thirst for additional right of way footage. No one even brought up the very simple and obvious solution of having the school bus driver drive 45 miles per hour. If you reference the ven erable Florida Drivers Handbook, there is a sec tion that illustrates the distance it takes to stop a moving vehicle. After studying the visual, you can only conclude that this is indeed, an obvious solution. Also, the bus driver sits up very high and can easily see over the two feet of roadside plants. Since deer, hogs and bear live throughout the county and not just on State Road 65, having a county wide 45 miles per hour speed limit for county bus routes and not just State Road 65. My conclusion is that this was nothing more than a common political stunt as it only applies to one road that has been in the middle of a home rule tug of war and nothing more. And, since the idea of declaring a state of emergency over ani mal vehicle collisions on State Road 65 was ab surdly considered by the Commission prior to the County Commission meeting, you would have to logically surmise that since these collisions hap pen county wide with unfortunate regularity, ALL of Liberty County would be under this declara tion and not just State Road 65. Its just common sense. Pamala Anderson, Rock Bluff EDITORS NOTE: Last weeks letter about the theft of a familys German Shepard was from Jan ice Combs of Hosford. It was mistakenly identi Lower speed limit would resolve SR 65 school bus safety issue While shes not had time to go through the records deeply enough to form an opinion, she did acknowledge she had seen her. She said she expects any problems she finds will stem from a lack of knowledge and knowing how to put things together. She feels she can put together a plan using clerical help along with an experienced bookkeeper to keep them on track. By looking over past audits, she believes there is enough money to keep the town running for now. I know its a challenge, she acknowledged. Although retired, Attaway does some corporate tax work, volunteers with her church and enjoys traveling as well as spending time with family. I like retirement.I wasnt looking for a job, Im just helping. She said she agreed to take on this task to help her community. I really feel like its important. If we can get them set straight and headed in the right direction, even the politics should settle down. She will have two employees working with her temporarily on Saturdays at $25 an hour each. Since she is waiving her $125 an hour fee, the town will get the services of all three at $50. Local CPA Richard Brooks will also assist with the books temporarily. The greatest pay for me is to put together a system that could transition over to them that would allow the town to advance, she said. ALTHA TOWN COUNCIL continued from the front page ory of the late Curtis Anders by renaming the event in his honor. Dr. Cannon.

SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 WASHINGTON President Obamas vow not to put boots back on the ground in Iraq, or send them to Syria, has prompted some analysts to wonder what kind of footwear is worn by U.S. military advisors and the so-called black-ops personnel dispatched by the CIA. Maybe theyre in Gucci loafers. Washington is en gaged in both the silly and the serious as the politicians and the pundits de bate Obamas plan to defeat and ulti mately degrade ISIS, the self-declared Islamic state. Obama wants to do it largely through air strikes. If boots on the ground become necessary, Obama says they will be somebody elses boots, not those belonging to U.S. combat soldiers. Testifying before Congress on Tuesday, Army General Martin Dempsey, who chairs the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he would not hesitate to rec ommend to the president the insertion of U.S. essary. It was really the only thing he could say in response to a question that sought to see if he had the backbone to stand up to the commander in chief should the situation warrant. Dempsey passed the test. Hes no yes man. But narrower than the Washington Post headline on Wednesday, Combat role is not off table. The sub-head, Dempsey: Special Forces may be needed, offered essential context. For example, U.S. military advisors are already in Iraq serving as forward observers to call in air strikes. As Dempsey explained, he is consulting with Obama on a case-by-case basis whether small teams of U.S. advisers should accompany Iraqi soldiers in certain situations. The parameters of exactly what advisers deployed to Iraq will be do ing is very much a focus of Congress as lawmak ers prepare to fund the training of moderate Syr ians battling ISIS in Syria. After the November election, Congress will likely debate additional authority for Obama to expand air strikes and counter-terrorism efforts into Syria. Obamas critics call his plan a house of cards because he has not yet secured commitments for ground troops from other countries in the region even though they have more at stake than the U.S. their argument, ISIS cannot be defeated. Air pow er alone cant do the job. Admittedly theres a lot thats unknown about the course Obama has chosen, but its not as dire as the critics suggest. The model for what Obama envisions is the way the Northern Alliance routed the Taliban in Afghani stan in 2003 with the assistance of the CIA and a small number of U.S. forces operating covertly. The Northern Alliance had some 20,000 Skeptics should do the math. The troops for this collective effort against ISIS will come from the Kurdish forces in northern Iraq, known as the Peshmerga, and also from Kurdish forces in Northern Syria. Meanwhile, the Iraqi government is getting closer to forming a unity government under a newly elected prime minister, which army with both Sunnis and Shiites. This would contrast with the Iraqi Army that dropped its ISIS onslaught. Those soldiers felt no loyalty to ward the Shiite-dominated government in Bagh dad. There are also Shiite-led militias in Iraq. Once enemies of the U.S., they mobilized to stop ISIS their mere presence alienates Sunnis, who, in turn, might swing toward ISIS. How the militias can be incorporated into the Iraqi Army or controlled by the Iraqi government is an open question. In the end these militias represent a form of war lord ism, as witnessed in Somalia and elsewhere. So, regardless of their military acumen, they cannot be allowed to act independent of the government. In this powder keg of religion and politics, the presence of either free-wheeling Shiite militias or regular U.S. ground troops would constitute a provocation, and be a huge mistake. Clearly, boots on the ground come in many styles, and not Perhaps Guccis on the ground? COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.

The Seahawks jumped out to a 21-0 half time lead and held on late for the victo ry. Penalties and turnovers continue to plaque the young Tiger offense but they did manage their most productive night statistically.

Se ahawk QB Jonathan Ortner found WR of 19 to the Tiger 36 yard line. After a short run and two incomplete passes the Seahawks faced a 4th and 7 from the Tiger 32.

Big plays by Ortner, Smith and Garofalo took the ball down to the Tiger 4 yard line. However on 1st and goal from the 4, Blountstowns Anthony Wyrick picked returned it down the right side line 29 yards.

Blountstown Head Coach Greg Jor dan was disappointed in his team in they fought back. For whatever rea son, our team was not motivated to start this game. We fought back and played a great second half but dug such a deep hole for ourselves early on that we could not overcome it. It should not be hard to motivate the team this week as they prepare to travel for a game with Liberty County. Liberty County (3-0) comes into the game undefeated outscoring their oppo nents by a 54 point margin. Game day will be Friday, Sept. 26 at 6:30 CDT at the Liberty County sports complex.

Shes had to peel apart stacks of soaked documents damaged so badly that, It was a miracle you could still read them. We need to get those records out before they are destroyed, she said, and hopes that Senator Bill Montford will be able to help by securing legislative funding to see that well over a hundred years worth of county history is preserved. For many documents, it may be too late, but Brown would like to at least try to have them scanned and stored digitally. pointed out, Is now at capacity. The basement records room is also full. More recent records are stuffed into cardboard boxes while many bound volumes of tax records, marriage records a way to preserve the papers that have accumulated in the basement vault. She needs either a more secure storage site or a way to have the information organized and documented. The mildew and the mold almost take your breath away when you walk in, said Melissa Durham, assistant to Senator Montford. The clerk gave them a tour of the basement room last week. The senator thought the conditions were terrible and will request to put it in the budget, Durham said. She expressed concern, though, because in recent years, the governors is going to do everything he can to get funding. Efforts to bring some order to the basement vault started in 2007, when criminal records, says Quinn. Most are from the early 1900s but she believes there are some records from the 1800s as well. At that time, a lot of the information mostly old books and documents, including handwritten records of citizens getting drivers licenses were taken to the library in Bristol. Her task at that time was to organize and rebox the civil cases, which she says was an interesting project. Divorce cases, in particular, shed some light on family life as she looked through couples complaints against one another. I couldnt live with him and neither could the devil, one woman told the judge in a 1955 divorce case. One husband explained his reasons for wanting to split from his wife in a 1948 case: She wanted me to go to Georgia with her but I said there wasnt Other cases from the early 1950s mentioned husbands who went out with dirty women, visited jukes and drank wild cat liquor. In a 1951 case, the wife told the judge her husband possessed powers. She said her spouse had used hypnotism on her. She said he boiled copper and silver money in her coffee and carried the money with him to keep me under his spell. Quinn made copies of a couple of old photos, one of the courthouse and one of the old jail, but its likely there are many other treasures hidden in the stacks But before the search can start to unearth the treasures buried in the basement done.

SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3B System funded by Northwest Florida Water Management District; will be owned and maintained by City of Blountstown Calhoun Co. Commission hosts groundbreaking ceremony for Pine Island Water System Thursday CALHOUN COUNTY The Northwest Florida Water Management District (NWFW MD) is providing a grant of nearly $410,000 in grant funding to the Calhoun County Board of County Commissioners for the Pine Island Water System project, which will include con struction of a new water distribution system for the residents of the Pine Island community. The Board of County Commissioners ap plied for and received funding for the con struction of the system. Through partnership with the City of Blountstown, the City will own and maintain the system after construc tion. This project is a great example of state, re gional and local governments coming together lem, said NWFWMD Executive Director Jon Steverson. I look forward to the completion of this project and ensuring that residents in the Pine Island community have a clean, safe supply of drinking water. The existing water distribution system for the Pine Island community is a small, private ly-owned water distribution system which does not meet regulation requirements for a publically owned and operated water system. Additionally, the three wells that supply Pine Island with water have been interconnected to increase pressure in the system. Because of this, even a small problem in the water dis tribution system prevented it from providing water to residents. This funding was awarded as part of the Districts water supply development grant program. During its 2013-2014 Fiscal Year, the District awarded nearly $10 million for 24 water supply projects across Northwest Flor ida. Through this grant program, the District is providing funding for three projects in Cal houn County, for a total of about $1.4 million. ABOVE, FROM LEFT: Melissa Durham with Sen.

Calhoun, Liberty County Health Departments launch the new FLASH Challenge BRISTOL The Florida Department of Health in Calhoun and Liberty Counties launched the FLASH (FIT Lifestyles Active Strong Healthy) Challenge this week. This challenge consists of a 12-week weight loss pro gram spanning from Sept. 22 Dec. 7. More than 40 teams consisting of 300 participants signed-up to compete for the greatest weight-loss percentage. Participants will have the opportu Zumba, Line Dancing, Boot Camp, PIYO and Tai Chi. Additionally, healthy meal plans will be distributed weekly to all participants. Last year community health partners in Calhoun and Liberty counties de termined that obesity is a priority area for our community and developed goals and strategies to address this growing epidemic in the Community Health Improvement Plan. We are excited to offer much needed resources to our community to help them reach their healthiest weight, said DOH-Calhoun-Liberty Administra tor Rachel Manspeaker. This outstanding initiative encourages participants to adopt lifestyle changes by incorporating physical activity and healthy eat ing into our daily routines. FLASH is a local venture of Healthiest Weight Florida, a public-private businesses and entire communities to help Floridas children and adults make consistent, informed choices about healthy eating and active living. response from the community has been overwhelming and we are excited about the positive impact this venture will have on our community, says DOH-Calhoun-Liberty employee, Kelly King.

Plastic water bottles are made from polyethyl ene terephthalate. When heated, the material re leases the chemicals antimony and bisphenol A, commonly called BPA. While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has said BPA is not a major concern at low levels found in beverage containers, it continues to study cluding those at the Mayo Clinic, say the chemical can cause negative effects on childrens health. And antimony is considered a carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, UF soil and water science professor Lena Ma led a research team that studied chemicals re leased in 16 brands of bottled water kept at 158 degrees Fahrenheit for four weeks, what research ers deemed a worst-case scenario for human consumption. Of the 16 brands, only one exceeded the EPA standard for antimony and BPA. Based on the study, storage at warm temperatures would seem to not be a big problem, Ma said. But she said more research is needed to know if other brands are safe. Mas study found that as bottles warmed over the four-week period, antimony and BPA levels increased. If you store the water long enough, there may be a concern, said Ma, an Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences faculty member who has a research program at Nanjing University in China. The UF scientist warned against leaving bottled water in a hot garage for weeks on end or in your car all day during the summer. Because of what Ma calls cultural differences their tap water, some leave bottled water in their car trunks for weeks. China consumed 9.6 bil lion gallons of bottled water in 2011, making that country the commoditys largest market. By comparison, Americans drank 9.1 billion gallons of bottled water that year, according to the International Bottled Water Association. While most Americans dont store bottled water in their cars for extended periods, they often keep it there for a day or two. Drinking that water occasionally wont be dangerous, but doing so regularly could cause health issues, she said. And its not just wa ter containers that merit more study, Ma said. More attention should be given to other drinks packaged with polyethylene terephthalate plastic, such as milk, coffee and acidic juice, she said. We only tested the pure water. If it is acidic juice, the story may be different. Although not part of the study, Ma touts tap wa ter over bottled water. Both are regulated by the federal government, tap by the EPA and bottled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The study is published in this months edition of the journal Environmental Pollution. Dont drink the (warm) water, UF/IFAS study warns Page 4B THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 HEALTH NEWS by Stephanie Carson, Florida News Connection TALLAHASSEE A new plan to allow multi-state licensing for in areas without enough health care services. If at least seven state legisla tures agree to whats known as a multi-state or interstate compact, a licensed doctor could easily get per mission to practice medicine in any of the compact states. Kevin Bohnenblust, execu tive director of the Wyoming State Board of Medicine, says the com pact would be especially useful for bringing specialists from a big city to a rural area with a small number of patients. They might only have three or four patients, but their services would be critical, Bohnenblust stresses. What were hoping is that, where there are under-served areas, The details of the compact were unveiled this month, and Bohnen blust says its already receiving in terest from across the country. The Florida Department of Health shortages in Alachua, Dixie, Gads den, Leon and Liberty counties, and estimates it would take more than 700 physicians to remedy that. Bohnenblust adds advocates of the multi-state compact hope to have the compact up and running in 2015. Under the compact, a doctor could pay a fee and go through a fairly simple process to get an ad ditional license. Bohnenblust explains thats much simpler than getting separate li censes to practice in multiple states, although he says physicians would still have that option. He adds if a license under the compact were suspended in one state, it would be suspended in all of them. Bohnenblust points out the com pact is designed to make services such as telemedicine easier to do. Were all getting more comfort able with doing things like Skyp ing and FaceTime, he says. As patients become more comfortable with it, and as physicians and other health care professionals become more comfortable, youll see more and more care driven that way. Bohnenblust says the compact should be especially useful for doc tors who want to operate a practice on both sides of a state line. Being able to make it so a phy sician can move between those two states and be able to provide care on kind of a seamless basis for a pa tient, he explains. Florida spent $80 million to fund an additional 700 medical residency slots this year, but experts say ad ditional residencies and fellowships are needed to catch the state up with the rest of the co untry. New medical multi-state licensing plan offers hope for rural areas in need of more doctors Q: Ive heard that strawberries have a lot of natural antioxidant compounds, but also that people cant really absorb them. Whats the story? A: Strawberries do contain multiple phytochemicals (natural plant com anthocyanins (which provide the red ellagitannins and ellagic acid. Research does suggest that our blood absorbs from the digestive tract only a small proportion of certain strawberry phytochemicals, including anthocyanins and ellagic acid. However, bacteria in our digestive tract may convert these compounds to others that our bodies do absorb. For example, ellagitannins and ellagic acid are converted to urolithins, which can be absorbed and do seem to offer anti anti-cancer effects. Further research is underway. Meanwhile, strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C. One cup provides enough to meet current recommendations for a whole day and we know that eating strawberries does increase blood levels of vitamin C and total antioxidants.

I spent a long time working in the political arena and I look back on it like a bad habit that I quit successfully. Now that Im not be ing paid to promote or oppose issues, the only ones I spend any time thinking about are the ones that are close to home, and especially ones that affect the Apalachicola River. Right now, Im equal parts sad and infuriated that one part of the federal govern ment the Corps of Engi neers is helping cause a disaster that another part of the federal government the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administra tion (NOAA) is going to water allocation policies set by the Corps are maintain ing Lake Lanier (north of Atlanta) at the expense of the Apalachicola system. Thats the infuriating part. Yes, I know thats oversim have an impact. And, yes, I know Ive complained about this issue before. But the dams along the system have made it so that the pain of drought is mitigated in the north and concentrated in the south. Now its dividing peo ple who desperately need to speak with one voice in the halls of power. All of us downstream are feeling the impacts of the Corps actions, but the oys termen in Apalachicola are suffering the most. Low aged the bay to the extent is in jeopardy. Heres where it gets tricky and where the federal gov ernment is doing the most damage. No matter what else happens, we have to have a healthy bay. Some oyster men believe that the har vest needs to be closed for a while to give it time to re cover. Others cant afford to go a season without income, so the idea of a closure like ly means they will hang up their tongs forever. According to media re ports, those two points of view clashed loudly at a re cent meeting. Thats the sad part. Here are people who all want the same things a healthy bay where they can con tinue working for a living as some of them have for generations. They are pitted against one another now, neighbor against neighbor. Some favor closure and recovery, while others are trying to save their jobs and income. Whos right? Both groups, most likely. Whats wrong here is that the federal gov ernment cant seem to under stand the concept of protect ing the downstream interests entire system. Atlanta can or manage its growth. Apala chicola Bay and the oyster other alternatives. I dont do politics any more, but if I did, I would advise our elected represen tatives on both sides of the aisle to call in whatever chits they have to force the Corps of Engineers hand on the matter. The Corps sets poli cy, but Congress controls the purse strings. Right now, were spending money to compensate people who want to work but cant because of bureaucracy.
