It is one of 17 branches that are closing in Florida, Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. The banks Bristol location closed last November. The Altha branch has three full time employees and one part-time employee. Cadence Bank began operations in this area in 2011 after the FDIC shut down Superior Bank. Cadence bought Superior Bank in April 2011. Banking is an evolving industry, and the decision to close a branch is never an easy one, said Debbie Innes, an executive with Cadence. At Cadence, our branch network is an essential part of our customer experience. We understand there will always be transactions that customers prefer to conduct face-toface, and we are intent on providing a strategic blend of digital and in-person banking experiences to best serve our clients. She said bank customers have many options, explaining that they increasingly rely on mobile and online banking to conduct their transactions. Cadence has invested considerable resources to provide alternate opportunities for our customers to do their banking whenever and wherever they choose, she said. Our customers and associates are important to us. The majority of the branches scheduled to close have Cadence Bank offices nearby where customers can conduct their banking business. With these closures, some associates were given the unfortunate news that their positions will be eliminated. We are dedicated to helping these individuals transition either within Cadence or to positions outside the bank. by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor When the organizers of the annual Florida Catfish Tournament in Wewahitchka approached one of their longtime sponsors with the suggestion that they incorporate their name into the tournament in exchange for more help promoting the event, they were surprised at the response. We suggested naming it the Roberts & Roberts Florida years tournament director Kenny Price. But Liberty County native George Roberts, who now lives in Bay County where the business is located, had another idea. Name it after Curtis Anders. Price said they were already thinking of adding In memory of Curtis Anders at the end of the events name, but George tribute to his friend. with friends and family, died after falling from his boat on the Apalachicola River in March. Roberts was one of many who joined members of the Wewahitchka Search and Rescue Team at the site throughout the 13-day search. Roberts, along with Andy Bailey and Jinker Potter, both of Bristol, were on the river every day of the search. That experience, he said, gave him some perspective of just how much work search and rescue groups do. We kind of got to know these guys and saw what so impressed that afterwards, he purchased a new sonar for one of their search boats. George and Curtis knew each other for many years, attending school together, fishing and hunting together and even working together. Curtis worked for me for 30 years, Roberts said. I hired him when I was 19 and he was 20. and described him as a very good employee, although he recalls that Curtis had a rocky start with them. The first day he came to work, he wrecked a dump truck, Roberts said. After it overturned and all the dirt spilled out, he asked Roberts what he should do. Roberts said the dirt full of dirt out by himself and didnt even complain about it, That display of patience paved the way for a long career, at the newer business, Roberts & Roberts in Bay County. Curtis became the go to guy for training employees on equipment and in fact, trained all our children when they did work with the company operated by Roberts and his brother, Chuck Roberts, he said. day. Wewahitchka athead tournament renamed in honor of Curtis Anders Deputy reunites mother, son on the phone after 20 years apart by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor Monday may have been Calhoun County Deputy John Scheetzs birthday, but he was the one who gave a special gift to someone else. The deputy was called out to Four Mile Creek Park Monday morning after a work crew doing maintenance at the site found someone sleeping on a picnic table. The 56-year-old man, whose name was Michael, arrived in Florida earlier this year with some other homeless people to escape the cold. At one point, he was staying in a homeless shelter in Panama City, and since that time, wound up in Calhoun County, where he had been getting some help from the folks at park while waiting on a check to arrive that had been forwarded to him in care of the church. The two men talked for a few minutes. Then the deputy asked about Michaels family. Michael, who is from Colorado, told him he hadnt seen his family in 20 years and didnt explained that he understood she had moved some years ago but wasnt sure about the name of the town. Even if he had known where she lived, he said he didnt have a cell phone to contact her and didnt know how to use a computer to attempt to search for her. Whats her name? Scheetz asked. Once he got her full name, he contacted directory assistance and asked for any listings under ringing, he handed the phone over to Michael. After a moment, he heard Michael ask, Mom? Then there were tears. The two talked and made plans to reunite. Michael said that as soon as his check arrived, he would get a bus ticket and head out to see her. Before the call ended, Michael handed the phone back to the deputy so that his 85-yearold mother could thank him. Ive been praying for years that one day he would pick up the phone and call me or show up on my doorstep, she told Scheetz. I knew this day would come. When I broke the news to her that he was homeless, she began crying, the deputy said. She said she told Michael, You could have always come home. Now he will. Amid the thanks from the long-estranged pair, Michael told the deputy, This is the best day of my life. It was a pretty good one for John Scheetz, too.

The group heard a presentation on the need to establish a local Boys & Girls Club from Rita Pruette and Clif ford Jackson. Both outlined the numer ed that once the club was established, there are numerous grants to keep it in operation. First, however, they need to get letters of support and do some fund raising to handle the start-up costs. (For more about this presentation, please see Page 3.)

He found out there was a lot more to the Boys & Girls Club. I started looking into what they offered, he said. They mentor kids, teach life skills and stress education. They also offer programs in the arts, sports, Theres really nothing to do for our kids in our communities, he said. The Clubs after school program would give them a place to go, something to do and an opportunity to learn and develop skills they might not learn about in their day-to-day lives. Pruettes realization stemmed from a much more serious situation. A few years ago, a 13-year-old girl came to the doctors office where Pruette, a nurse practitioner, was working and asked for a pregnancy test. The test showed she was not pregnant. The girl was disappointed and explained that her boyfriend wanted her to have his baby. Pruette urged her to begin using birth control pills and supplied her with three months worth. The girl said she would use them. The same youngster showed up a few weeks later for another pregnancy test. This time it was positive. She was happy but Pruette was worried. How could a 13-year-old mother raise a child who wouldnt repeat those poor choices? How could this young girl, and one day, her child, learn about personal responsibility and the many options the future offers? She started to do a little research. At Thursdays Super Council meeting at the library in Blountstown, Pruette gave a presentation on the changes being made in young lives through the Boys & Girls Club. One of the most remarkable statistics she presented was a 50 percent drop in teen birthrates over a seven year period in Milwaukee, WI. The city went from 52 births per 1,000 in 2005 to just over 25 births per 1,000 in 2012. She cited local statistics that showed Calhoun Countys 2013 teen birthrate at just over 56 per 1,000, with much the same number in Liberty County. Just the previous year, in 2012, Liberty Countys teen birthrate soared at 78 per 1,000. She would like to see those numbers drop to fall in line with the success Milwaukee has established. How did they do it? She says a program like Boys & Girls Club of America had a big role in bringing that rate down by encouraging kids to stay in school, take care of their health and avoid risky behavior while developing a strong character. Her presentation included a checklist Club from the Florida Tax Watch group, which points out that kids taking part in the after school programs have higher reading scores,less school absences and lower dropout rates. She and Jackson are gathering a list of endorsements from local organizations and community leaders as they work toward establishing a club. While it will cost about $50,000 to get started, once in place, the club will be mostly funded by grants, Pruette explained. location and raise the start-up money. They will be working under the umbrella of the Mayhaw Community Action Group, using their 501 C3 status Theyre already aware of a $20,000 grant thats provided to newly-formed clubs to purchase computer equipment, and there are many other grant sources they can work with after getting on their feet. What they need right now is community support. If you would like to help, you can do so by adding your name to their endorsement list and writing a letter supporting their efforts.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTOBER 1, 2014 WASHINGTON Fast forward 100 years or even 50 years and look back on today from that vantage point. The threat posed by ISIS will be greatly diminished when compared to the dam age done by climate change if steps are not taken to reduce the amount of pollu tion released into the atmosphere. Some people will never believe that the warming of the planet is something man has accelerated. They cite cli mate swings in the past, and are willing to place the future of the planet in the hands of hope. What will be will be, they say. of this century is the warmest on record, and people who live in coastal areas can see with their own eyes that sea levels are rising. In New York this week, where the United Nations host ed a summit on climate change, representatives they watch their land masses disappearing. ordinary people took to the streets in New York on Sunday to call on world leaders to take action on climate change, there was a sense we might have turned a corner on this emotional issue. Advocates for addressing warming that is al ready underway no longer feel as great a need to convince the opposition that climate change is real, and that mans endeavors contribute to beling people climate deniers, the new approach simply asks if we can agree that polluting the planets atmosphere is a bad thing. Environmentalists can stop trying to convince people to believe in global warming, and switch instead to a more positive approach of combat ing pollution. Who can be opposed to that? In the sixties, during the Mad Men era, people used to litter in public parks without thinking twice about it. There is a scene in one of the early seasons of Mad Men where Don Draper and his family are picnicking in Central Park. When theyre done, they leave paper napkins in those days. Attitudes have changed. Attitudes are changing as well about whether and how we combat cli mate change. There was a seriousness of purpose to the march ers in New York, described by The New York Times as a cross-section of concerned ordinary people, some veterans of the climate change movement, others newcomers. The world lead ers who gathered Monday in New York to lay the groundwork for a potential 2015 agreement did so amid reports that the summer months of 2014 were the hottest on record for the globe, and that 2014 is on track to surpass the previ ous record-holder, 2010, as the hottest year in recorded history. Even so, the reports that emerged from the New York meeting were not the dire warnings that weve become accustomed to hearing. In stead, there were the sounds of optimism born of acceptance that global warming is upon us, and that there is opportunity in combating it. Its probably too much to dream that someone will come up with technology to extract carbon di oxide from the air, but short of that, renewable fuels are coming into their own and displacing old fossil fuels that have done so much to poison and pollute the atmosphere. In a nice touch on the eve of the summit the Rockefeller Brothers Fund announced it would be selling its investments in the fossil fuel in dustry, and would be joining other institutions and individuals in spurning companies that rely on coal and tar sands. The Rockefeller money came from their great-grandfathers Standard Oil Company, a fact that makes their decision all the more poignant.

OCTOBER 1, 2014 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 TALLAHASSEE The Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) announced an investment of $4.5 million to expand funding for hand-shelling operations that capitalize on the expertise of local oyster fishermen to aggressively continue oyster bed restoration efforts. Governor Scott said, This funding will help to further restore the Apalachicola area, and will put Florida families in this region back to work. We must support the Floridians who provide for their families from the Apalachicola Bay, and those affected by the Hand shelling is the practice where oyster conditions for oysters by using their boats and labor to place oyster shells or other materials on the oyster reefs providing a good place for a new crop of oysters to settle and grow. This targeted shelling will last through the end of the year and represents one of the largest shelling programs in the history of the like this are critical to the long-term health of oyster habitats that will be needed for a renewed and funding for this program comes from a Federal Fishery Disaster grant that was granted in 2013 at the request of Gov. Scott. As the winter harvest season for Apalachicola Bay oysters enters its second month, the FWC also announced the areas oyster beds will remain open while agencies continue monitoring and assessments to determine additional measures needed to support recovery of the Apalachicola Bay ecosystem and oyster resources. Current information indicates continuation of limited harvesting of legal-sized oysters will not reduce the potential for longer-term recovery of oyster crops. The viability of keeping the oyster beds open, however, will continue to be examined throughout the winter harvest season. The FWC and FDACS are continuing a close partnership with the DEO to jump-start a major $4.5 million hand-shelling program in October. This is in addition to FDACSs efforts over the past two years to improve oyster habitat in Apalachicola Bay. The continued decline of oysters in Apalachicola Bay is a threat not only to the economy of north Florida but the entire of Agriculture Adam Putnam. We are committed to helping this community and working together to assist those families who are suffering from the decline in the FWC Executive Director Nick Wiley said, This announcement furthers our commitment to working with the local oyster industry, particularly the hardand processors who want to help restore and maintain the health of Apalachicola Bay so they can support their Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Jesse Panuccio said, The investment into the recovery of the Apalachicola Bay Oyster Fishery and into the local experienced workforce is a win for this community. This habitat-restoration project is essential to the continued environmental and economic health of the area, and the expertise of the oyster fishermen will ensure the greatest return on investment for Agencies are working in close partnership and listening to the Apalachicola community to help determine the best ways to provide assistance challenging times for the oyster industry. In addition to the shelling program, the FWC has already put in place conservation measures for Apalachicolas oyster fishery, including modified harvest limits and limited closures of the winter bars. As the shelling program proceeds and the restrictions are implemented, the FWC and FDACS will continue to closely monitor the health status of oyster harvesting and work hand-in-hand with the local community and oyster industry to determine if any additional actions are needed. rivertowninsurance @ hotmail.com MELISSA PITTS Owner/Agent COMMERCIAL !El seguro de automovil vendio aqui! NEW HOURS: Mon. Fri. 9 a.m. 4 p.m. Rivertown INSURANCE Oyster beds to remain open as winter harvest season continues Glamping misses the point OUTDOORS A few years ago, my father-in-law suggested the whole family take a vacation. He wanted to do something original and started soliciting ideas for something out of the ordinary, some thing other than a stan dard tourist trap. My sister-in-law, Leslie, came up with a plan that would involve a beauti ful, rugged landscape with plenty of outdoor activities for kids and adults alike. It sounded like a great For a variety of rea sons, we never got to take that vacation and that was probably a good thing. Thats because it would have introduced my children to the un speakable evil of a trend called glamping. In case youre wondering, glamping is a portman teau a combination of the words glamor and camping. Where I come from, those are words that should never be used together under any cir cumstances. (Except for this column, of course.) If youve never heard about this abomination before, its technically called luxury camping and its exactly what it sounds like. Someone fer all the amenities of charge tourists even more without having to build said hotel. The idea, I guess, is that you get to tell folks back home that you spent your vacation camping in the wilderness, while never actually having to do any of the things normally associated with camping. Ive only seen the pictures online, but the tents are really canvas cabins with electricity, running water and wood scenic hikes, horseback rides or other sanitized feature gourmet meals and (presumably) singand you even sleep on goose-feather mattress covers. ured this was the secret world of camping that my brother-in-law Fred dy and I had been hiding from them. For the re cord, Freddy is an Eagle Scout who has logged nights in the woods as I have. To us, this experi ence looked like Disney might as well have in vented Camping Land. Glamping just seems wrong on a number of levels, but one big prob lem is that you miss out on all the great lessons that real camping has to offer like the fact that waterproof tent is an oxymoron and that its best to drink your coffee without worrying about Glamping also takes away the challenges of sleeping with a tree root in the middle of your back while youre shiv ering and trying to con vince yourself you really dont need to go to the bathroom. The wooden dont ever have to slip their feet into wet, fro zen boots. Gas heaters cause you to miss out on the experience of trying barely glowing ember because your hands are shaking too badly to hold a match. Another thing you lose with glamping is the joy of cooking a meal over burner stove. I dont think Ive ever been camping when at least one item didnt fall on the ground at some point in the preparation. The into a 15-minute rule in the woods,even longer if youre hungry enough. The biggest problem is this: When I come back from camping trip, I tend to appreciate the comforts of home even as I miss the hardship of staying in the woods. Im afraid that if I went glamping, coming home would start to feel like roughing it and Id miss left in the great out doors.

They did. With no turnovers, sustained offensive drives and a stingy defense, the Tigers were able to steal a victory from their cross-river rivals.

Box 536, Bristol 32321 To the editor: I would dare not let this time past without paying homage to a man who made a tremendous impact on my life. Coach Johnson did make a difference in my life. As a teenager, a sexual assault attempt was made on me to Coach Johnson, and I never saw or had to encounter that individual again. When I decided to go out for football in the spring of the year, in his own encrypted way he warned me that it was going to be tough and that many would try and make me quit, then he made me promise that I would not quit football. My wanted to quit, but my promise to him kept ringing in my head. As I progressed through my high school years Coach Johnson's discipline stayed present in my life. As I participated in the different sports, he would demand the best out of all of the players he I recall during my sophomore year trying to qualify for the state track meet in the 440 yard dash. As I and two other runners line, my legs buckled and I fell to the ground. I got up, dusted did not qualify for the state meet but Coach Johnson made me an honorary trainer, because I did not quit on the race, instead I a trainer, this allowed me to be able to attend the state meet with the team. At the state meet I was called upon to replace an gold medal. I also recall when one season we lost two games back-to -back. Coach Johnson never had back-to-back losses As a team we knew that practice was going to be brutal. Instead that Monday, Coach Johnson had us form a circle and spoke to us for two hours on life, winning and losing, character, and the challenges which lie ahead of us as a team The following week before we played North Florida, Coach Johnson had each player shake his hand and look him in the eye and say "Coach, I am ready!" We won the game 13-0 and went on to win our I was a member of the last team Coach Johnson coached I recall when he made the announcement that he was accepting the position of Principal. He told us that it is everybody's goal to move up in life, and that he felt had gone as far as he could go at the coaching level. I felt blessed to have been a member of the last of a coaching legend Coach Johnson knew came to the forefront of society. As Principal, he made it possible for all students to be on an equal level by implementing strategic ways of voting to allow minority students to become part of student council, cheerleading, and homecoming I will miss Coach Johnson dearly, but I did not want his contribution to my life to go unsaid. He pioneered many programs to help the students, black or white, rich or poor, to enjoy and take advantage of the opportunities that would later in life be tied back to his administration .... and what a great administration it was and never will be again.
