He was said to be upset because his girlfriend was in the hospital in Jackson County and told the jailer his mother would be bringing him a letter with information regarding his girlfriends condition. When Guzman returned, she went into the dispatch center to drop off the letter which she said she had written for Brown. The jailer looked over the letter and became suspicious after realizing that everything written there had been previously discussed between the two during their last visit. He also noticed the paper had been dipped in an unknown substance. He kept the letter and put it in an evidence bag. Brown later asked about the letter and when told it had been seized, he said his mother would come get it. When she arrived and requested it back, the jailer told her it would be held. A recording of a visit between Brown and his mother indicated that she phoned his girlfriend, who Brown then instructed to write a letter saying something about the baby and a miscarriage. Guzman told Brown that his girlfriend said she would take care of it at the house. The mother and son then began whispering, which prevented any further conversation from being heard on the recording. In addition to the smuggling charge she shares with her son, Guzman was also charged with sale of Schedule III or IV drugs. She was released on $6,000 bond.Clarksville man charged in altercation with 3 kidsA 41-year-old Clarksville man was arrested on three counts of cruelty toward a child/aggravated child abuse after Calhoun County deputies responded to a call that a man was beating the kids. Deputies arrived June 6 to find the suspect intoxicated and sitting on the front porch. Statements taken at the scene indicated that Teddie Monroe Attaway, 41, became upset when a child wanted to ride a go kart. He reportedly began calling the child names, which upset another child at the home who then told him to stop. He responded by slapping that child and threatening to break all your bones, according to the report. When a third child came up behind Attaway and grabbed him around the neck to prevent him from harming the others, he threw his arm back and struck the child in the mouth. Following his arrest, he was released on $7,000 bond.TEDDIE M. ATTAWAY ARREST REPORTS compiled by Journal Editor Teresa EubanksA woman who was caught trying to smuggle a cell phone, methamphetamine and synthetic marijuana into Calhoun Correctional Institution was arrested after a metal detector indicated she was carrying something suspicious Saturday morning. When Elizabeth Talbot, 31, of Rockledge was pulled aside after she failed to clear the metal detector she was asked if she had any contraband. According to the probable cause, Talbot hung her head before admitting she had a cell phone hidden in her crotch area. After further questioning, she admitted carrying drugs in a body cavity as well. Talbot had been seen with a male who had left the prison and returned to the parking lot, where he was found next to a Dodge Caravan. He told Calhoun County Lt. John Scheetz that Talbot was there to visit her boyfriend and he had given her a ride. Approximately 17 grams of suspected synthetic cannabinoids were found in a been left in the van. The contraband was wrapped in black electrical tape and hidden inside a zippered case. Talbot was also found to be carrying 15 grams of methamphetamine as well as the phone. She was charged with introduction of contraband into a correctional institution and possession of methamphetamine. She is being held on $15,000 bond.Woman charged with smuggling phone & drugs in Correctional Institution SaturdayELIZABETH A. TALBOT

The Great CEU Round-Up to be held on July 25 Floridas waters and beaches are not only popular with people, but are also key habitats for manatees and sea tur tles. More of these iconic species live here than in any other state. The mana tee and sea turtle decals, created by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), are a fun way for people to support the research, rescue and management efforts that conserve these species. Decals support manatee and sea turtle conservation efforts Every July, the FWC introduces new manatee and sea turtle decals that are available with a $5 donation. The wa terproof decals are designed to look good on a vehicles bumper or the side of a boat. Get them when registering or re-registering a vehicle or boat at local Florida provides critical habitats for manatees and sea turtles, said Carol Knox, who leads the FWCs Im periled Species Management Section. Public support is making a difference in helping us conserve these imperiled species. Please get these decals to show your support. Over 6,000 manatees swim in the states coastal waters, rivers and fresh water springs, and about 20,000 sea turtles nest each year on Floridas At lantic and Gulf coast beaches. The de cals help fund manatee and sea turtle conservation efforts. For example, when someone calls the FWCs Wild life Alert Hotline at (888) 404-FWCC (3922) to report an injured, entangled or sick manatee or sea turtle, FWC staff works with partners to respond and res cue the animal. The decals also spotlight important conservation issues: manatee decal shows several manatees, including a mother and calf. The back of the decal notes that the manatee is rather than an endangered species, un der the federal Endangered Species Act. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser vice announced this change in early 2017, a signal that efforts to conserve the states marine mammal are suc ceeding. turtle friendly night sea turtle de cal shows an adult female loggerhead on the beach against a background of darkened buildings. The back of the decal reports nearly 97,000 loggerhead nests were counted during the 2017 sea turtle nesting season. It reminds people to manage beachfront lights to protect nesting and hatchling sea turtles dur ing nesting season, which continues through the end of October, and offers other tips on helping sea turtles.

Late Night Laughs What can go wrong? WASHINGTON Plans are in place for President Trump to meet Russian President Pu tin in Helsinki, Finland on July 17, and inquir ing minds want to know what can go wrong? For starters, Trump is under investigation by the FBI for possible collusion and obstruction of justice regarding his campaigns contacts with Russia. That might have persuaded any other Ameri can president to back off, but not Trump. He scheduled a summit with Putin on the heels of a meeting in Brussels with Americas tradition al allies, timing that is seen as a slap at NATO while embracing Putin. Lets review the bidding as Trump prepares to sit down with Putin. Trumps son, Don Jr., said in 2008 as the U.S. economy was in a freefall that, We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia. American banks would no longer lend to Trump because he was seen as a bad business risk, so reliance on Russia had become a key component of Trumps empire. Add to that the fact that Trump has never said anything negative about Putin while he has trashed just about every other world leader, and there is ample reason for concern. The whole idea of a summit is that two leaders can sit down together with only translators and a few advisors in the room to size each other up and build a relationship. But Trump often fore goes his advisors. Does the prospect of Trump the American people? It appears to be on track to happen, so its only fair to ask what are the risks? One comes under the World War II expres sion, Loose lips sink ships. Trump has a ten dency to blurt out things his advisors have told him that should remain secret or that are clas tor James Comey, that nut job, to relieve pressure of the Russian investigation. Two, can Putin play Trump the way Kim Jung Un evidently played him? The pageantry of a summit trans formed the North Korean leader from a brutal dictator into a world leader, and while its a posi tive development that Kim has emerged from his hermit kingdom, its not clear that he has surren dered anything in terms of his countrys nuclear development. Putin too wins by getting a private audience with Trump. What else will he get? Three, can NATO survive Trumps relentless assault at the same time hes buttering up Putin? The Baltic states Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia are on the front lines when it comes to Putins territorial ambitions. Theyre not sure they can count on the United States to preserve their in dependence. Poland isnt all that happy either. Trump blames Russia seizing Crimea on Presi dent Obama and doesnt think it matters much since people in Crimea speak Russian. It was the most blatant land grab in modern times. Four, Trump is touting a potential deal with Russia on Syria. What the elements of that deal would be are of course unknown, but the only deal that works for Russia is keeping Assad in power. And that would assure a Syrian port for In fairness, we should ask what could go right when these two leaders meet for an extended about what did or did not happen with Trumps build a positive relationship that goes beyond all agree to a political settlement that would end the years long civil war in Syria and ease out Assad. Or maybe, Putins Puppet will remain Putins Puppet. WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND by Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift
JULY 11, 2018 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY Sean Dietrich writes about life in the American South. His columns have ap peared in South Magazine, the Bitter Southerner, Thom Magazine and the Tallahassee Democrat. He shares his observations and chronicles his interaction with friends, family and strangers he meets along the way while sharing glimpses of dai ly life in our little corner of America. He has written several books which can be found on Amazon.com. R Im writing this in the early morning. The birds are asleep, the crickets, too. The sun is about to rise, and its going to rise just for you. There is a faint glow behind the trees. Just wait. Its coming. I received a letter this morning from a girl Ill call Caroline. Caroline is eighteen. She told me about herself. She wrote: I feel ugly and I know thats why Ive never had a boyfriendI probably never will have one. People dont like me, and Im worried that nobody will ever love me. Sweet Caroline. Heres another letter from a man well refer to as Elvis because thats what he wanted to be called. Elvis is forty-four. He wrote: My ex-wife broke my heart... Why is it I end up trusting somebody and they break my heart, and instead of hating THEM, I dislike MYSELF some how? I dont like myself And this beautiful young woman: I have an arteriovenous malformation Which is why my arm doesnt work, and now its moving to my leg. The malformation started small, but has grown to the size of a tennis ball, giving me daily seizures and other obstacles The hardest part about all this is being forgot ten. I used to have a lot of friends before my diag nosis, but now I get that people are busy, but is life really about being busy? Well, I hate to disappoint these good people whove written me, but theyre talking to the wrong guy. I dont know nothin bout nothin. The only thing I can possibly think to tell these good folks is about what happened to me during my seventh-grade year. First, a little background: my seventh-grade year was shaping up to be a good one. Often, in the school cafeteria Id have my pals laughing until milk spilled from their noses and they lost control of their lower intestines. Then, Sept. 14th happened. The newspaper reported that my father swal lescent life went to hell. I dropped out of school. I became a faceless nobody at least thats how I felt. Ill never forget asking my friends sister on a date, years later, when I was seventeen. She turned me down. So I tried again. Strike two. Finally I asked her, point-blank, what was wrong with me. Well, she said. All that stuff with your fam ily, I dont wanna be with anybody who might be screwed up. Screwed up. How about them tomatoes? Still, that girl was actually doing me a favor be cause later that same year, I met another girl. She was a kind soul. She was quirky, outgoing, and she wore mismatched shoes. We never dated, we were only friends. She was missing her right hand she lost it in a back. She was a lifeguard, a guitarist, an artist, a comedian. Late one night Ill never forget this she and her younger brother knocked on my bedroom win dow. The girl said: You wanna watch the sun come up? So? she said. That means we have six hours. Cmon. I joined them on the beach. They brought jugs of coffee, a pocket radio, a deck of cards, potato chips, and blankets. Her brother brought his girlfriend. For six hours we all sat on the sand. There was no necking, it wasnt like that. We were friends. stayed awake until the sun soared above the mighty Gulf of Mexico. shot to her feet and ran along the beach, waving arms in the air. So did the others. I thought theyd lost their minds. She sprinted toward me, grabbed me, and pulled me to my feet. Cmon! she yelled. This sunrise is JUST for you! I felt myself whoop and holler with them. I had no idea what we were so excited about, or why. Im older now. My whooping and hollering days you should see what Im seeing. Its worth hollering about. wake up the whole world. The skies are unfolding. The crickets are singing about its arrival. The birds are applauding its entrance. I feel warmth on my face. Youre on my mind. I know its hard, but just hold on for a few more minutes, whoever you are. Youre not alone. Look in the sky. This sunrise is for you.

Page 12 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JULY 11, 2018 Political advertisement paid for and approved by David Jackson Summers for County Judge For Liberty County Judg e S ummers David Jackson ELECT Hello Friends and Neighbors, IF ELECTED I PLEDGE TO BE: Your Voice. Your Vote. Your Judge. -David Jackson Summers Andrei Sourakov, the collections coor dinator at the McGuire Center, said Knud son and Bordelons collection is a perfect example of how amateur scientists can greatly help professionals. These days, everybody talks about citizen science as if it is some new thing without realizing that lepidopterists soci eties and lepidopterology have been thriv ing on citizen science for three centuries, he said. BIG BUTTERFLIES, MICROMOTHS AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN Warren said many lepidopterists will or moths, but Knudson and Bordelon collected them all, even down to micro moths, tiny insects with a wingspan typi cally smaller than a dime and sometimes not much bigger than a pinhead. These smaller species are frequently overlooked by collectors, which is one reason this collection is so impressive, Warren said. Researchers at the McGuire Center or visiting scientists often have to verify do and sorted taxonomically. With 160,000 described Lepidoptera species and more time-consuming task. But Knudson and Bordelon handed over a collection in which nearly every specimen was cor rectly sorted by taxonomy. Its incredibly well organized, and ev also unusual, Warren said. Along with the specimens and glasstopped drawers in which they were stored, Knudson also included several self-pub lished, meticulously illustrated books en compassing the results of the Texas Lepi doptera Survey. Thats the only documentation of where these things are in Texas for the most part, and theyre illustrated volumes, Warren said. All of those specimens in the volumes are now in the collec tion. The collection has served as the basis for more the species described in these publications speci mens that represent a species are also included with the donation. Holotypes are crucial for taxo nomic work, Sourakov said. Thomas Emmel, founding director of the Mc Guire Center, said another reason the collection is so valuable is that it also includes species from Mexico. Because national borders do not apply to wildlife, this breadth of representation allows re searchers to better understand the fauna of the re gion as a whole, particularly as climate change ex tends the distribution of many species northward. BEST CATCHES AND A Knudson is still collecting but at a slower pace. After 65 years of collecting, whats left on his wish list? I wanted to get a specimen of the rare sphinx moth, Adhemarius blanchardorum, from Big Bend someone who was authorized to collect there gave me a specimen, and it is now in Gainesville. Oth new that I have never seen before. Reminiscing on past specimens, Knudson said his best catch was the Megathymus ursus a gi ant skipper in Big Bend National Park in Texas. He also said Bordelons best catches included two a male Hypolimnas misippus a mimetic bal palm sanctuary and a female Historis odius dious an orange and black butter apartment complex. Charles missed the Historis odius di and he came back to where I was in de spair, Knudson said. I told him that it would probably come back, and it did! This time he got it and began screaming at the top of his lungs, and soon the com plex manager came over to see what had happened. PRESERVED FOR GENERATIONS Knudson said he is happy to see the fruit of his and Bordelons work is help ing others learn about Lepidoptera. Many of the described species in the collection are only found in Texas, and some of the specimens will undoubtedly represent species that are new to science, Sourakov said. Receiving this collection will al low the McGuire Center to research these specimens and improve our knowledge gion. I can only say that people, especially children, seeing this collection and the statements about it will be encouraged to work on insects and other arthropods, Knudson said. Emmel echoed these sentiments and said he hopes others will be able to learn from the collection for a long time. These Lepidoptera specimens will be here for future generations to marvel at and wonder why we didnt preserve more of their habitat.
