Liberty County Deputy Heath Cutshaw responded to the 11 a.m. call reporting that a man was beating a woman on July 11 at a home on Gobbler Court, just outside the Bristol City Limits, according to information from the Liberty County Sheriffs bloodied face on the ground outside the residence and saw the suspect, Brandon Scott Cross, standing over her, according to the arrest report. Cross began walking away from the injured woman when he saw the deputy. A witness nearby alerted the deputy that Cross had access to guns and could be leaving to get one. Cutshaw called out for Cross to brief foot chase to a neighboring residence. Cross, who was screaming and cursing, began walking toward the deputy. As Cutshaw attempted to handcuff him, Cross pulled away. When the deputy saw Cross put his BRANDON S. CROSS by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA family dinner ended with an Altha man being taken to jail after he began acting erratically, injuring two people as he attempted to leave. Justin Mikel Barker, 25, startled those gathered for a dinner July 6 when he began acting paranoid, according to the arrest report from the Calhoun County Witnesses said Barker stated that they were being watched by something in the woods. He started using his phone to scan for images and thought he saw things in the woods that were going to get them. He got his pistol from his vehicle and began walking around the yard to protect them from the aliens in the woods, the arrest report explained. When asked to put his gun back in the vehicle, Barker became agitated and decided to leave. He put his two infant children in the vehicle and got ready to go, refusing to let anyone else drive. After the vehicle started, there was a struggle over the keys between him and another adult. The children in the back were screaming as he began driving away but he did not get far. The passenger put the vehicle in park and after about 100 feet, they came to a stop with the gears grinding. Barker fought when others tried to pull him out of the drivers seat, at one point making the threat, I will cut your guts out! A knife was removed from his pants as he was taken from the vehicle. While trying to restrain him, one person was elbowed in the face while another was bitten in three places before he was placed on the ground. An ambulance was called when Barker went into convulsions; when he stopped, he said he was thirsty. The EMS crew then called for a deputy. One of those at the scene had a contusion to the right arm, right side of the torso and two fractured ribs on the right side. Another person had bites on the left arm, left shoulder and left side of the torso. Barker was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, felony battery, domestic battery and two counts of child abuse without great harm. He is being held without bond.JUSTIN MIKEL BARKER Relatives attacked by man who thought aliens were in the woodsby Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorKenneth Gatlin, 61, of Blountstown was charged with driving with a suspended license, habitual traffic offender and careless driving in an accident that left one of his passengers seriously injured when he lost control of the car in Leon County early Sunday morning.

GRACEVILLE Nearly 300 teachers be came the students from across northwest Florida and Alabama at an ener gy education workshop co-hosted by West Flor ida Electric Cooperative (WFEC) in June. I really enjoyed this conference, and as a new teacher, walking into a classroom without many supplies, this conference was very worthwhile, said Carol Boswell, who is a seventh grade teacher at Vernon Mid dle School. She will be teaching this month. The second annual Empower Energy Edu cation Workshop pro vided fun, engaging, fast-paced activities about electric generation and distribution with a focus on energy educa tion. Attendees received the tools and curriculum necessary to integrate the activities into their classrooms. These ma terials, aimed at K-12 students, include handson activities designed to teach tomorrows leaders about all energy sources from fossil fuels to renewables. The cur riculum was developed by the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project. The Empower Energy Educa tion Workshop is part of an initiative to promote a balanced approach to energy education in the classroom. NEED equips todays teachers with knowledge and work skills, training teachers to teach energy from a balanced perspec tive and promote an en ergy conscious and edu cated society. They have designed an objective, multi-sided energy edu cation program used in more than 65,000 class rooms nationwide. These resources meet students diverse needs and learn ing styles and are cor related to the National Science Education Con tent Standards, as well as state standards. One of our founding principles as a coopera tive is providing educa tion and learning to our members, said Russell Dunaway, WFEC Ex ecutive VP & CEO. As the electric utility indus try continues to change due to innovations in technology, we believe it is imperative to ensure educators have the in formation and materials needed to inform future Local teachers get an energy education generations about the types of energy avail able, where it comes from, how it is generated and also how it impacts their families, our econ omy and quality of life. The conference also provided attendees an opportunity to network with other teachers, sharing ideas and build ing lifelong connections. Boswell stated the con nections she was able to make with some of the other teachers were im portant to her as a new educator. Each teacher who at tended received a kit with experiments and resources they can use with their students in the classroom environment. In fact, the teachers who attended Empower par ticipated in these handson projects and experi ments themselves they even wrote, acted or sang in skits illustrating the energy information and principles they learned over the three-day event. I plan to use the ma terials with my fourth grade science students to introduce topics in a visual way that will help them remember the materials more easily. When students are able to SEE what we are dis cussing right in front of them, it is much more memorable, said Nirra Poret, a veteran teacher of 14 years from River side Elementary School. The co-op will pro vide scholarships to local educators to the work shop again next summer. If you are a teacher in Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson or Washington County, contact your school district's county tion about how to apply.

His columns have appeared in South Magazine, the Bitter Southerner, Thom Maga zine 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 daily life in our little corner of America. He has written several books which can be found on Amazon.com. R This morning, there were two dozen home grown tomatoes on my doorstep. I arrived home to see Winn-Dixie bags hanging from my door, and I almost lost control of my lower ex tremities. I come from country people. And country people regard tomatoes as holy things. Country people get excited about things like tomatoes. We are also the kind of people who show our love in strange ways, using things like vegetables, casserole dishes, love-notes, or saturated fat. Sometimes we use all four. There was no note attached to these toma toes, which struck me as odd. A secret tomatoadmirer, perhaps. I brought the bags inside. I opened them. There were tomatoes of every shape and color. Yellows, greens, reds, and even purples. Purple tomatoes, my mother once told me, were magic tomatoes. Youve hit the tomato jackpot, my mother would say, if you come across a tomato so full of magic that its turning purple. I have a thing for tomatoesmagic or oth erwise. My mother used to grow them in the summers of my youth. If I close my eyes I can still smell the greenery in her garden. Her small patches of tilled earth were surrounded by chicken wire, and hair clippings. The clippings were mine. Back in those days, my mother used to cut my hair with dull scissors on our back porch. In fact, this was the primary reason for my traumatic childhood. My haircuts were a cross between Bozo the Clown and an International Billiards Federation regulation cue ball. Often, people at school would say things like, Hey, who cuts your hair? Ronnie Milsap? Directly after my weedwacker haircuts, my mother would gather hair clippings into a dust pan and scatter them in her garden. The idea was that the human scent scares away vermin like raccoons, rabbits, and various civic-level politicians. And it worked like a charm. Her tomatoes were county renowned. ing baskets, loaded with bright reds, yellows, and magic purples. Im talking tomatoes so plump they require PG-13 ratings. So now you know how country people show love. Homegrown okra, collards, zipper peas, purple hulls, white corn, green peanuts. And sacred tomatoes. fare just anywhere. Most tomatoes, for instance, dont come from gardens, but from nuclear fa cilities in Beijing. They are pink atrocities that seize the moment. Thats exactly what I did. For breakfast, I made a tomato sandwich the same way my dirtfarmer ancestors have been doing the since the invention of the rock. My family has long standing rules for tomato sandwiches, which are simple: bread. In a pinch, Wonderbread will do, but try not to make it a habit. Also, leave whole grains acle Whipwhich science has proven is not actual mayonnaise, but sweetened industrial pump lubricant. And heres another tip: always use more mayonnaise than your doctor says you should. not repeat the above steps. Ive changed my shirt eight times today. It might sound silly, but these tomatoes make me remember things. They make me remember the sort of folks I come from. And they make me remember how times were long before peo ple texted at stop lights. They make me remember a time when the only electronic devices we had were made by Philco or General Electric. A time when people still read Sunday papers. When the only coffee maker my mother used was a Corningware per colator. A time when love wasnt sent via email, text, or emoji, but in Winn-Dixie bags of produce. Speaking of which. I reached into the bottom of the Winn-Dixie bag and I found a note writ ten on a piece of legal paper. I mustve missed it. Dear Sean, the note read. I bought these for you, I thought youd enjoy them. Well. Dear Jamie, I wrote this for you. Its nothing compared to a tomato, but it will have to do.

Each event being held across the state will educate families on the dangers of leaving children unattended in a vehicle, as well as, provide preventative measures on safe swimming, to ensure families enjoy a safe and endless summer. It only takes a moment to be proactive and ensure your child is safe, to prevent a fatal accident, DCF Secretary Mike Carroll said. During the upcoming months, take advantage of the information shared with you today and throughout the next few months, with wonderful memories and fun times. Florida summers are extremely hot and leaving a child in a car for any amount of time is neglectful and can have deadly consequences, said DHSMV Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes. DHSMV encourages all motor ists to Arrive Alive by not only driving safely, but by also conof the vehicle when they reach their destination. Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF), Florida Department of Highway Patrol (FHP), Tallahassee Fire Department, Tallahassee Police Department (TPD), Leon County Sher County Emergency Management Services (EMS) are joining together to promote a safe summer by providing prevention and awareness information on Wednesday, When: Wednesday, July 18 at 10 a.m. Where: FHP Troop H building, located at 2100 Mahan Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32308 Why: The dangers of leaving children unattended in a vehicle, especially during Floridas hottest months, can be fatal.
