This Grazing School will be group discussions with partici pants. Every livestock producer that relies on grazing as the primary means of feeding their herd needs a set of skills that are challenging to learn from text books, YouTube videos, or webpages. This Grazing School will provide participants the opportunity to learn directly from state specialists and county agents who assist livestock pro ducers every day who make key grazing management decisions. What are the best forage varieties that are adapted well for this area? What are the best methods to use to establish pastures? Should I fer tilize? If so what should I order? Do I have enough pasture to feed my animals for 8-10 months of the year? What should I be feeding when there is not enough forage to graze? How can I control grazing to make the most of the annual for ages I plant? How do I calibrate my planter and sprayer to apply the correct amount of seed or chemi cals when I use them? These are the types of ques tions that will be discussed during the Grazing Management School. Whether you raise cattle, horses, sheep or goats, if you depend on pastures as the primary means to feed your herd, these are key skills you need to hone to improve your grazing management. 8 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. registration Field Demonstration and Dis cussion Topics: ing Rate, Depth, Timing, and Va rieties Management & Economics How many animals can we stock? mals with Hay and Feed-stuff Op tions Technologies ment 3:30 p.m. adjourn Please register through this Eventbrite link at www.eventbrite. school-tickets-48917366159 Reg istration is required to participate in the Grazing School.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL SEPTEMBER 5, 2018 COMMENTARY A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. Late Night Laughs WASHINGTON Senator John McCain, RAriz., left his greatest leg acy without fully realizing what he had wrought. All citizens 18 and over have a right to vote all except our senators and representatives. We freely elect them to craft laws, to cast votes on our behalf, but they are regularly denied this constitutional right. The Founding Fathers created a system with checks and balances, but could never have envi sioned the gridlock permeating Washington today. Thats why it was amazing when McCain voted against the legislation that would have ended Obamacare, defying his party and giving new life to the signature program created by the man who defeated him for the presidency. McCain literally crossed the aisle, walking to ward the Democrats and whispering in Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchars ear that he was going to vote no on the legislation. President Trump was furious, a fury he couldnt set aside even to appro priately acknowledge McCains death. Explaining his no vote, McCain said he wanted regular order for the legislation, which means it is revolutionary in todays hyper partisan con text. Madison, known as the father of the Constitution, established three branches executive, legislative and judicial each with the freedom to make its own rules. Congress now has rules that are so discriminato ry that members only get to vote on a small number of bills. The majority leader in the Senate and the speaker of the House function like minor poten voted on, and what should be bottled up and never see the light of day. Its happening now with a bipartisan bill to safe guard the Mueller investigation. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., wont bring it to a vote in the Senate. If he did it would pass with biparti san support. The immigration re form bill McCain co-spon sored in 2013 received 68 votes in the Senate, a super majority. That bill went over to the House where Speaker Paul Ryan, RWisc., never allowed it to so-called Hastert rule, meaning it couldnt get sup port from a majority of the Republican majority. When McCain called for regular order, he didnt bers of Congress should be part of a process that culminates in a vote, that Majority Leader McCon nell should not abandon hearings and regular order, or Speaker Ryan should not be able to kill legisla tion on his own and thwart the will of the larger House, Democrats included. Its nice for Congress to consider naming a House building after McCain, but it would be even nicer to have a living legacy to honor the contribu tions he made to the American experience. There are many memorable moments as we mourn the passing of Senator John McCain, RAriz., a public servant and a loyal Republican who dared to cross the aisle and work with Democrats. That was once commonplace in a legislative body But Madison in crafting much of the Constitu tion did not envision political parties. He imagined there would be factions around different subjects and issues, and people would come together in coalitions. Thats how McCain operated, and why Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., tried to persuade him to join him as vice president on the 2004 Democratic presidential ticket. McCain always worked to open up the legisla tive process, and restore regular order to allow law makers to cast a vote rather than be subject to the whims of leaders who put politics above country. Of course, it would not be practical to vote on every bill that comes before the House and Senate. Setting a threshold of support, at least 10 percent, would weed out frivolous legislation. McCain made his stand. Suffrage for Congress is the goal. This is McCains legacy regular order, including the right to vote.

Annual SALE CLOSED ON SUNDAY 50 % OFF UP TO AUG. 29 SEPT. 8 Contributing writer Last Friday night the Liberty County High School Bulldogs took on the Florida A & M High School Rattlers at Bragg Memorial Stadium in Tallahassee. Coach Derek Causseaux and his staff had challenged the players all week. Even though it was only the second game of the sea son, it felt like gut check time for LCHS. From the opening kick off, it was apparent that whatever the coaches had been selling this week, the players had been buy ing into. Although the ended in a punt, running backs Destin Fletcher (#1) and Joe Finuff (#41) intensity, and the offen sive line was taking the attack to the Rattlers. The tone on defense was likewise totally differ ent from previous games. The Bulldog down line men were clogging up running lanes and shed ding blockers, while the linebackers and defen sive backs were swarm ing the Rattler ball carri ers before they could get any room to break loose. The Dawgs second possession started on the Rattler 32 yard line after a short punt. After several, pile-moving run plays, Crisanto Rangel (#7) booted a 40 yard rights to give LCHS its the season. On the very next possession, howev er, the Rattlers displayed what they could do if the Dawgs missed an assign ment, when a FAMU re ceiver took a short pass and raced 86 yards for a touchdown. After the suc cessful two-point conver sion, the Rattlers led 8-3. Both teams traded mis cues and turnovers the next several possessions, until the Dawgs jumped on a FAMU fumble and took over at the Rattler 12 yard line. Finuff punched into the teeth of the Rat play. On second down, quarterback Brady Ped die (#12) faked the give to Finuff and found Aus tin Waller (#23) behind the Rattler defense for the 9 yard touchdown recep tion. After the PAT from Rangel, LCHS again led by a score of 10-8. Coming out in the second half, the Bull dog defense continued to suffocate the Rattler of fense before plays could get started. On virtually every play, a Dawg was disrupting the timing and rhythm and nullify ing FAMUs speed and explosiveness. Offen sively, LCHS spread the ball around, having no less than seven players run the ball, and mixing in inside and outside run plays with swing passes and vertical routes. Although neither team scored in the second half, the Bulldogs established Nearly all the second half snaps were on the Rattler Dawgs were on FAMUs doorstep several times, while the Rattlers never really threatened to score. Late in the fourth quarter, as FAMU had pushed the the Dawg defense put the interception, their second of the game. Theres no question this was a much needed win for LCHS. Whats more is the way in which the Bulldogs won: re power running, and timely passing. It was far from a perfect perfor mance; the Dawgs cer tainly left some scoring opportunities out there, and gave up some explo sive plays. Nevertheless, the Bulldogs controlled the game, especially in the second half. The of fensive line is beginning to open up holes for the running game and the backs are committed to running hard north and south. Peddie and Waller are starting to establish a nice quarterback-receiver connection on the playaction passing game. Whatever the coaches did last week, this fan hopes they keep it up the rest of the season. The Bulldogs are on the road once more to take on Cottondale High School at 8 p.m. ET this Friday, Sept. 7.

ERIC JON MANN BRISTOL Eric Jon Mann, 59, born in Louisville, KY on Christmas Day 1958, the second born son of William and Helene Mann, passed away Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018. He and his family moved to Minnesota when he was in third grade. There he enjoyed what seemed to ing snow tunnels, and playing with siblings Billy, Christa, and Maria. In his junior year of high school, they moved again to Tallahassee. He soon became kin to the warm Florida sun and easy going southern lifestyle. He would graduate from Leon High School, and then later from Florida State University. The family moved on, but for Eric, the Gulf Coast quickly be came his preferred home. His career path would span the state, but he was best known as a dedicated, long time Publix baker and culinary master. All who knew him understood that he worked hard, in order to live large. If there was a game or challenge to be had, he was all-in: tennis, golf, scuba diving, ball, motorcycle riding, dancing there was no end to the art of his trade, and quite accomplished in all he became. Doing for his family and friends was the only thing that could make him step away. He lived and enjoyed life together with the loving support of his native born wife from Bristol, Kammy Peddie Mann. His life touched thousands, and for those of us who were blessed to know him, there is with the joy and energy that Eric Jon spread around. He will forever be missed! His untimely death on Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018 fol lows closely behind that of his beloved father, Wil liam B. Mann IV, on Sunday, Aug. 26, 2018.

LETSPOWERSAVINGS by Michael DeVuyst, Journal sports writer TALLAHASSEE Blountstown went on the road last Friday night to Tallahassee to take on the #2 ranked Class 3A Flori da High Seminoles. Flor ida High used their depth and speed to overwhelm the young Blountstown team and came away with the 30-7 victory. The Tiger defense held possession of the game, stopping them on a 4th and 3 on the Blountstown 31 yard line. The Tigers ning plays and taking 7 minutes of clock, mov ing the ball to the Semi nole 15 yard line. A 32 yard FG attempt by the Tigers never got off due to a bad snap and the Seminoles took over on downs. Florida High struck quickly with a 4 play 70 yard drive culmi nating with a 47 yard TD pass. The XP gave the Seminoles the 7-0 lead with 2:30 left in the 1st quarter. The Seminoles would get another big play with 4:21 in the 2nd quarter. Florida High QB Wil lie Taggert, Jr. (son of Florida State University Head Football Coach ) connected with Raymond Woodie (son of Florida State University Line backer Coach) on a short screen pass to the right that turned into an 80 yard TD reception. It looked like the Tigers would trail 14-0 at the half when di saster struck on the last play of the half. The Ti gers were forced to punt with 14 seconds left in the half. The punt snap was muffed and a Florida High defender scooped it up and scored with no time left on the clock giving the Seminoles the 20-0 halftime lead. Part of the game plan for Blountstown was to possess the ball on of fense and keep it away from the talented Semi nole offense. The Ti gers did exactly that by holding onto the ball for could not produce any points. The Seminoles had the ball for only 3:35 on two long pass plays and a defensive fumble recovery. The third quarter opened with a couple of possessions by each team but ended with a bang for the Seminoles. On the last play of the 3rd quarter, the Semi noles converted a 3rd and 26 with another long pass play, this time a 44 yarder. Four plays later, Florida High punched in another score on a 3 yard run. The XP gave Florida High an insurmountable 27-0 lead with 9:18 left in the game. The Tigers would not be shut out after a Zeb Kelley hit forced a Semi nole fumble that was re covered by Trevin Smith on the Florida High 21 yard line. On the next play, Tiger QB Trent Pea cock ripped of a 20 yard run taking the ball to the Seminole 1 yard line. Two plays later, Peacock would sneak the ball over the goal line for the Tiger score. James Shores XP made the score 27-7 with 5:12 left in the game. Florida High got the the scoring with a 45 yard FG with 27 seconds left in the game to make the The Tiger offense ran 58 plays (25 more than Florida High) and took 31:20 off the game clock but only found the red zone twice and the end zone once. The Tiger rushing attack was led by Kentrell Lawson with 65 yards on 11 carries. Peacock added 59 yards on 16 carries with Mon with 39 yard on 7 carries. Trevin Smith chipped in 35 rushing yards. Pea cock completed 5 of 9 passes for 40 yards with Alex Valdez catching 4 of those passes for 27 yards. The Tiger defense was led by Zeb Kelley with 11 tackles followed by Ken trell Lawsons 9 tackles. Montarious Brown had 2 big QB sacks and Alex Valdez had a takeaway with an interception. Tiger head coach Beau Johnson feels his young team will get bet ter after facing tougher competition, "We were very pleased with the ex ecution of the game plan and the effort our players gave. We never accept losing but we also must be honest with ourselves week to week about our progress and who we are competing against. Al though we won 43-0 vs Graceville in Week 1 you missed assignments on every play. You objec tively watch every play from the Florida High much better we executed the blocking schemes and veer versus the toughest opponent we will see all year. They were ranked the #2 team in 3A for a reason. They had a ton of fast, big, experienced dudes. But I will take the ones wearing Red and White any day. We are proud of our players. The road remains tough as the Tigers (1-1) prepare for the Class 4A Marianna Bulldogs this week. The Bulldogs (02) lost in Week 1 to Chi pley 24-10 and last week lost a heartbreaker to Port St. Joe 14-9.

BY BRAD BUCK GAINESVILLE A University of Florida scientist will lead a team of researchers try ing to help battle Fusarium wilt, a major to mato disease around the world. In doing so, investigators hope to help farmers increase their tomato production. Sam Hutton, an associate professor of horticultural sciences at the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, will use a new $490,000 federal grant from the USDAs National Institute of Food and Ag varieties that contain genes to help tomatoes thwart Fusarium wilt. As with many crops, disease prevention in the nation in fresh tomato production, ac cording to UF/IFAS economists. In 2015, 2.7 billion pounds of fresh tomatoes were produced in the U.S., according to UF/IFAS economists. In 2012, 29,000 acres of tomatoes were harvested in Florida, with a production value of nearly $268 mil lion, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Florida tomato production is centered mainly in MiamiDade, Palm Beach, St. Lucie, Manatee, Hillsborough and Gadsden counties along with southwest Florida. Resistance to one type of Fusarium wilt comes from a gene known as I-3, said Hutton, a faculty member at the UF/IFAS Gulf Coast Research and Education Center in Balm, Florida. Several years ago, UF/IFAS researchers found this gene in wild tomato relatives and introduced it into commercial varieties through traditional breeding, he said. But while the I-3 gene makes tomatoes more re sistant to Fusarium wilt, it also reduces fruit size and increases the potential for bacterial spot disease, Hut ton said. We are conducting the study to remedy this situation, he said. Less bacterial spot and larger fruit size should both translate into better returns for the grower. Hutton wants to know whether the nega tive impacts that come with the I-3 gene stem from genes that tagged along from the wild tomato relative. If this is the case, we should be able to eliminate these problems by getting rid of those extra genes by whittling down the size of chromosome that came from the wild species, Hutton said. Plants that lack the negative genes will be developed using traditional breeding techniques, and simple molecular genetic tools will help us identify which individuals to keep. In the project, scientists also are looking again to tomatos wild relatives, searching for new sources of resistance to Fusarium wilt. These new resistance genes may not have any of the problems that we currently see with I-3, Hutton said. And they may provide novel mechanisms of disease resistance that could further improve breeding efforts. We expect these efforts to result in an expanded toolkit of resources that can be leveraged to develop improved Fusarium wilt-resistant varieties, he said. Sam Hutton, an associate professor of horticultural sciences at the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences BY BRAD BUCK GAINESVILLE University of Florida scientists plan to use a $7.3 million, fourmake sweet corn taste even better, last lon ger and grow better across the nation. Mark Settles, a professor of horticultur al sciences at the UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, will lead the proj ect. Also on the UF/IFAS team are Marcio Resende, a UF/IFAS assistant professor of horticultural sciences whos also the new sweet corn breeder at UF/IFAS and Charles Sims, a UF/IFAS professor of food science and human nutrition. that make sweet corn a tasty vegetable and be able to then use those genes in tradition al breeding, Settles said. For example, re searchers hope to boost the sugar levels of sweet corn. Its a really popular vegetable. But there have been few game-changing innovations that would boost the taste and yield of sweet corn. Fewer than 14 percent of American adults consume the USDA recommended amount of vegetables for a healthy diet, and overall, fruit and vegetable consump tion is declining in the U.S., Settles said. America, sweet corn is no exception to this trend, he said. However, demand for fresh market and frozen corn is increasing, rela tive to canned corn, and breeders need to be able to provide the best sweet corn seed pos sible as part of federal campaigns to encour age Americans to eat enough vegetables. Both fresh and processed sweet corn must meet consumer desires for taste, ap pearance and convenience, Settles said. Many quality traits are best addressed through the genetics of sweet corn varieties. Through test panels run by Sims, re texture that consumers like. As study par ticipants sample the corn, theyll also tell how much theyd be willing to pay for it, which makes up the economics portion of the research, Settles said. Much of Floridas corn is grown in the Everglades Agricultural Area, which is largely in Palm Beach County. Thats why, for years, the UF/IFAS sweet corn breeding program emanated largely from the Ever glades Research and Education Center in Belle Glade, Florida. UF/IFAS researchers will get help from scientists at Iowa State University, the Uni versity of Wisconsin, Washington State University and the USDA to conduct the study. The grant comes from the Specialty Crop Research Initiative, which is part of the National Institute of Food and Agricul ture, an arm of the USDA. In addition to consumers, scientists hope to help growers add value to a crop that already brings in $160 million a year for yielding crop in the state. traits, scientists will screen existing sweet things, help corn grow right after planting, Settles said. This will be particularly helpful for organic farmers, he said. They also hope to try to beat back the in Florida. Lastly, scientists seek genetic traits that make corn last longer on grocery store shelves and requires less pesticide use, Settles said.
