Crash claims a life

Local man killed in single-vehicle accident on CR 249


Staff
A Hamilton County
man died Saturday night
in a single-vehicle crash
on CR 249 about a mile
and a half west of Jasper,


according to Florida
Highway Patrol reports.
Markus Jerry McDaniel,
53, was pronounced dead
at the scene, said FHP.
McDaniel was west-

Toyota pickup left the
roadway, crossing the


north shoulder before
traveling back across the
highway onto the south
shoulder where the right
front of the vehicle struck
a tree.

ha, not
ah'ays
been slow
to emn-
brace innovation and
rogrehs. During the
in e na heyday of tourism here
in the 1800's many of
S our hotels had their
own gas plants and generated their own electricity
too. The old Hamilton Hotel advertised that they
had "electric lights" before electricity was available
to homes in White Springs. The hotel was on the
cutting edge of innovation for its time. The Florida
Normal College was established here in the mid
1800s and was one of Florida's first and finest co-
ed colleges. Railroads were still fairly new when
White Springs had four trains a day bringing in
tourists.
Times changed and White Springs fell behind, no
longer on the cutting edge of technological innova-
tion. Our telephone system was one of the last to
get tone dialing rather than rotary. We were late to
get Cable TV and it is still an old system. But wait,
there is hope that technology is on the march
again. How do I know? Because this column just
received its first email!

Kaleigh, and a friend of Trey's, Jimmy, were returning
from a trip to Disney. Ben was working in Gainesville
and could not accompany them.
The purpose of my trip was to bring back Ben's
Camry. A few years ago when I had gone to Sycamore
to pick up something for Leigh Ann, I remembered
that the Shepards had mentioned coming down #41
days at Church. It is good and I drove all the way down from there. It was a de-
to be back home and lightful drive, so I decided to come back that way.
hope to hear from you. The following day Ben and I left Sunday morning
On a recent trip to going to Sarasota for the visitation and funeral of my
Sycamore, Ga., I rode up' niece, Ben's cousin, Margaret Norris (Cooper) Kline.
there with Leigh Ann's Margaret was the oldest grandchild of this group of
parents, Richard and Norrises, and had seemed more like our generation
Ann Shepard, in their (she was 70). After making this trip it made me ap-
truck and pulling their predate even more that Margaret (Maggie to us) had
camper. Her parents, driven up from Sarasota by herself, arriving at 10 o'-
Leigh Ann, Trey and, clock Saturday evening and also being here on Sun-
day, for my birthday celebration last August. The ser-
vice was very meaningful and personal, held at the
~P .^ _funeral home, a Presbyterian minister. Something in-
R C punO -l teresting was the cemetery was across a street and a
procession was formed to pass over it. We got to visit
f with her family at her home on Sunday evening and
after the funeral on Monday, seeing many family
members. They even mentioned her aunts (me) and
S J- here Dad's sister, Mary Norris Carter who is still liv-
Sfing; and her dad's brother, uncle John Norris, all of
whom are living, in the obituary, which I thought was
very thoughtful. I was the only one able to be there.
The next morning following gettinghome, we left
to get Leigh Ann to Gainesville for surgery (she is
now home and doing great).It is good to be home and
trying to settled.
I'm glad I went to get the Camry because my car is
now in the shop and I am driving it. I always feel that
everybody knows me by my car so if you miss me just
look for Ben's Camry.
As I passed Mac's place earlier I noticed that the
door was open. I had just had a call from Becky, and
S they are now busy on getting the third floor of their
house refurbished. She said they hope to begin work-
ing on the electrical works at Mac's Place, with plans
to reopen sometime in the _future (it is hard to get
Someone to do the work on it) hopefully in the not too
distant future.
Countywide Sisterhood will be meeting at First
United Methodist Church Jasper on Tuesday, July 8,
at 7 p.m. A program on Patriotism will be presented
by RB and Cecil Davis. We are looking forward to

Upon leaving active

he was again recog-
nized as a member of
the Dean's List. In 1976,
he graduated from law
school with a Juris Doc-
tor degree and was ad-
mitted to the Florida
Bar. He moved to
Madison where he has
practiced since 1976
with a primary empha-
sis in child support es-
tablishment and en-
forcement, probate, real

is the recipient of the
2002 award from the
Florida Supreme Court

Association and as
chairman of the Third

Committee.
In 2003 Stone was ap-
pointed by Governor
Jeb Bush as a member
of the board of directors
of Madison County
Memorial Hospital.
In 1980 Stone was ap-
pointed by Governor
Bob Graham as a trustee
of North Florida Com-
munity College. He was
reappointed to that po-
sition by the governor
on two subsequent oc-
casions and selected by
his fellow trustees to
serve as Chairman of
the Board of Trustees
from 1986 to 1989. In
1991, that college
awarded Stone its Dis-
tinguished Service
Medallion.
Stone is a member of
the American Legion,
the National Wild
Turkey Federation,
Madison Lodge No. 11,
F&AM, and Marzuq
Shrine Temple.
He is married to the
former Debra Bums, the

nior" Burns and Mary
Ann Bums of Madison.
They have raised their
six children in Madison
County, all graduating
from Madison County

County unemployment on the rise


Continued From Page 1A

May 2008 unemploy-
ment rate for the North
Florida Workforce De-
velopment Board region
is 5.2 percent. This
Workforce Region is
composed of Hamilton,
Jefferson, Lafayette,
Madison, Suwannee and
Taylor Counties. May's
unemployment was an
increase of 1.5 percent-
age points from the re-
gion's year ago rate.
Florida's unemployment
rate is equal to the na-
tional unemployment
rate of 5.5 percent.
Employment by in-


dustry in the North
Florida Workforce De-
velopment Region was
30,962 in September
, 2007 (the latest available
data). During this time,
total employment in-
creased by 1.8 percent
over the year while the
state declined by 0.8
percent during the same
timeframe. Among the
industries adding jobs
in the region were Nat-
ural Resources and Min-
ing, Manufacturing, and
Construction. The same
industries lost jobs
statewide.
North Florida Work-

Schools receive full accreditation

the district and to deter-
mine the status of ac-
creditation for the next
five years. In the past
the individual schools
in the district under-
went a review eacl five
years to determine their
compliance with SACS
CASI standards. The
Hamilton School Board
voted late last year to
apply for district ac-
creditation which
would include all
schools in the district.
The process included
extensive review of ma-
terials at the district lev-
el, validation of the
Standards Accreditation
Report completed by
the local SACS Steering
Committee,' visits to the
school sites, and inter-
views with over 125
stakeholders including
school staff members,


parents, community
members, and business
partners.
The results of the re-
view were given to the
School Board in a called
meeting on the after-
noon of April 23. It was
the recommendation of
the Quality Assurance
Team that the Hamilton
School District receive
full district accreditation
for the next five years.
Dr. Mark Elgart, Presi-
dent and Chief Execu-
tive Officer of Ad-
vancED, the parent
company for SACS
CASI, wrote in a letter
to Superintendent Har-
ry J. Pennington "On be-
half of the Quality As-
surance Review Team, I
am honored to report
that the school system
has satisfactorily met
the expectations and re-
sponsibilities of the
SACS CASI Guided Self


Study in pursuit of Dis-
trict Accreditation. Ad-
ditionally, the Quality
Assurance Review
Team certified in the re-
port that the Hamilton
County School District
met all the standards for
accreditation for District
Accreditation. Conse-
quently, the Quality As-
surance Review Team
recommends to the Ad-
vancED Accreditation
Commission, unani-
mously and without
reservation, that the
Hamilton County
School District be
awarded District Ac-
creditation. I once again
commend and congrat-
ulate you, the profes-
sional staff, the Board of
Education, and stake-
holders throughout the
community on this
achievement to be
awarded District Ac-
creditation as a Quality


School System."
The Hamilton Schoolf
District joins a select
few districts in Florida
to successfully complete
District Accreditation.
Superintendent Pen-
nington would like to
take this opportunity to
thank all of the dedicat-
ed district and school
staff members, parents,
community members,
and business partners
that worked for over a
year to make this ac-
creditation a reality.
SACS CASI District Ac-
creditation status en-
sures that the accom-
plishments of the
Hamilton School Dis-
trict students will be
recognized on a local,
state, and national level
as having been earned
in a quality school sys-
tem that meets specific
standards of the SACS
CASI organization.


Barker announces candidacy for school board district 2


Continued From Page 1A

fice of School Board,
District 2.
I am 39 years old and
a lifelong citizen of
Hamilton County. I am
married to Jamie Bark-
er, daughter of Hazel
Strickland. We live in
the beautiful country-
side of Hamilton where
we are raising three
sons: Trever Barker
(12), Douglas Barker (9)
and Jacob Barker (six
weeks old). My parents


are David and Marsha
Braswell Barker.
As a child, I attended
Hamilton County
schools and graduated
from HCHS in 1987. I
also attended Florida
State University and
graduated in 1991 with
a bachelor of science
degree.
I, along with my fam-
ily, attend the First
Presbyterian Church of
Jasper and I currently
serve on the church
session. One particular


enjoyment of mine is
helping coach Little
League sports. I feel ex-
tracurricular activities
are really great for
kids, whether it be
sports, music,,chess
team or whatever inter-
ests the child.
My work involves
the sale, finance and
transport of recreation-
al vehicles at Travel
Country RV Centers of
both Florida and Geor-
gia. I have been with
the company for 12


years and have worked
hard to be one of the
company's top produc-
ers; as I want to be for
your kids in the Hamil-
ton County schools.
Our community is
very important to me
and I believe a commu-
nity's foundation and
future are its children. I
want the absolute best
decisions being made
so that our teachers
and faculty have every
possible resource and
support available for


our kids. Let's, as par-
ents or guardians, get
more involved. Moti-
vate, take that extra 15
minutes with a child,
believe me, it will make
a difference.
By communicating
and working together,
we can make Hamilton
County Schools some
of the very best in the
stable. The entire com-
munity of Hamilton
County; students, par-
ents, teachers, faculty,
local government, busi-


nesses and citizens can
make'things happen in
a positive way.
I, Doug Barker,
would work really
hard for you and your
children. I am asking
for that chance. On Au-
gust 26, go vote, it's
your right and don't
ever forget you can
make a difference.
Thank you,- Doug
Barker, candidate for
Hamilton County
School Board, .
District 2.

'All Things Are Connected'


Paintings and sculptures by Mary Alice Harley

now on display in Tallahassee r


Submitted

All Things Are Connected, an
exhibition of works by St. Petersburg
artist Mary Alice Harley, is now on
display in the state Division of Cultural
Affairs' Gallery for Innovation & the
Arts in Tallahassee. The exhibition
includes paintings and sculptures
inspired by a famous 1854 address by
Native-American leader, Chief Seattle,
considered by many environmentalists
to be one of the most profound and
beautiful statements on the environment
ever made. The exhibition will run
through August 30. All Things are
Connected is the inaugural exhibition .
for the new Division of Cultural Affairs'
Gallery for Innovation & the Arts. The
gallery is dedicated to showcasing
Florida artwork that is educational and


demonstrates inventive ways of using
visual media to convey new ideas and
highlight often unheard voices.
"Being an environmentalist, I was
deeply moved upon first reading Chief
Seattle's address," Harley says of this
body of work. Chief Seattle gave the
address in response to an offer to buy
land adjoining the newly established
town that later became the city of
Seattle, named in his honor. Although no
original transcription of the speech
exists, multiple versions have appeared
since the late nineteenth century when it
was first reproduced in a newspaper
article from the translated notes of an
eyewitness. During the 1960s and
1970s, the speech was republished
numerous times and became an
inspirational cornerstone of the modem
environmental movement. Harley used


one well known version of the address
as the source of 11 important phrases
from the speech, integrated as text into
the visual themes oIthe works.
Harley spent much her career as a
musician. After her children grew up,
she turned to wood working and then to
painting. Mary Alice paints primarily in
water color and acrylic. She is a
signature member of the Florida
Watercolor Society for whom she is
incoming president, the International
Acrylic Painters Association and the
Southern Watercolor Society. Natural
materials and simplicity of line are the
trademarks of her wood sculpture, and
her bird sculptures of found driftwood
are widely collected. An avid gardener,
Harley's yard, featured in Better Homes
and Gardens Magazine, has been
declared a wildlife habitat by the


extension service of the University of
Florida.
' The Division of Cultural Affairs'
Gallery for Arts & Innovation is located
on the first floor of the R.A. Gray
Building, 500 S. Bionough St. The
gallery is open to the public Monday-
Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Sundays
and holidays noon to 4:30 p.m. For
further information, contact Morgan
Lewis in the Division of Cultural Affairs
at 850-245-6356.

"GO NATIVE! Eat
Florida Seafood" is the
new campaign the
Florida Department of
Agriculture and
Consumer Services is
rolling out this month to
encourage consumers to
"eat like the locals."
With the nationwide
interest in buying
locally produced foods,
GO NATIVE! is
designed to help
consumers easily
identify and select
seafood caught in
Florida's waters.
"This program gives
consumers the
information to choose
delicious, healthy .

FOr more
information about
the GO NATIVE!
campaign or
Florida seafood
recipes, visit
www.FL-,
Seafood.com.


' seafood with confidence
in the quality and
safety," says Joanne
McNeely,'Chief of the
Bureau of Seafood and
Aquaculture Marketing.
The campaign's name,
GO NATIVE!, is a
reference to eating
locally caught seafood
like Florida natives, old
and new. With more
than 80 seafood varieties
found right off Florida's
coast, the choices are
limitless. Local families
in the seafood business
take pride in providing
premium quality
seafood with superior
flavor for customers of
the local seafood
markets and restaurants.
The eye-popping logo,
a colorful cartoon fish
with funky sunglasses,
is an important
component of the
campaign. "We wanted
to create something
unique that people
would easily recognize
and associate with
seafood from Florida",
says McNeely of the GO
NATIVE! signature fish
logo. A series of GO
NATIVE! television ads
will run through the
summer to encourage
consumers to look for
this logo to identify the
Florida seafood products
at participating seafood
markets and restaurants.
The GO NATIVE!
campaign spotlights
Florida's important
seafood industry and
aims to boost business
for retailers and
restaurants as well. The
economic impact of the
seafood industry in the
state is almost $1 billion
annually and the
industry creates more
than 30,000 jobs
throughout Florida.
So the next time you
dine out or purchase
fresh seafood to dine in,
remember to look for
the GO NATIVE! logo
to find Florida seafood
from local waters.

Keeping health on hand outside

-1w a' W While many people used to believe that the cold winter weather put us at
greater risk for illness, the truth is that it's not the cold, but the spread of
germs through the environment -such as the hundreds of surfaces we touch
everyday-that cause illness.
During the warm-weather months, we spend lots of time outdoors, whether
at the playground, local zoo, or sports arena, to name a few favorites. As
we're traveling or simply out and about, we rarely stop to think about the
germs that our hands pick up in public, outdoor places-settings that offer
fewer opportunities to wash hands at a sink with soap and water.
f .^ According to Dr. Charles Gerba, nationally knqwn germ expert and
MO 'professor of environmental microbiology at the University of Arizona, eighty
percent of all common infections are spread through the environment around
S.... us-meaning we're more likely to come into contact with germs at all those
crowded public places that we frequent in the summer months.
But the good news is there are ways to avoid getting sick and spreading
germs to others. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
7 recommend keeping hands clean as an important preventive measure, even as
the weather continues to heat up. According to the CDC, effective hand
hygiene includes washing hands frequently with soap and water, and when
These resources aren't available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
Alcohol-based hand sanitizers like PURELL have been proven safe and
Effective in numerous published scientific studies. In fact, PURELL Instant
Hand Sanitizer is proven to kill most common germs that may cause illness,
and starts working in seconds upon application. And, with portable packaging,
S it's easy to bring along in a purse, backpack, suitcase, or picnic basket.
S "It's important to remember that although cold and flu season is a distant
memory, we still can get sick during warmer weather seasons," says Dr.
II Gerba. So, as families are outside and on-the-go and can't get to a sink easily,
it's a smart decision to use portable, travel-sized containers of alcohol-based
hand sanitizer whenever hands come into contact with frequently touched
surfaces.

MANY KINDS OF FREEDOMws


MANY KNDS OF FREEDOM


By Pam Campbell


7 his month, our country,
America celebrates her
birthday! Most people take
time out of their busy lives
to celebrate the Fourth of
July. There are parades, picnics, contests,
festivals, concerts, fireworks, and of course
family gatherings of all kinds. You will see
many more American Flags flying and
people wearing red, white and blue than any
other day. It is a wonderful time to celebrate
the freedom that we have in America.
There is another kind of Freedom that I
would like to talk with you about today,
freedom from sin. Now I am sure that some
of you that are Christians are thinking of
putting this article down, that it does not
pertain to you, please read on as this
pertains to all of us. Many Christians
actually sin much more than I am sure that
they realize, most not even knowing that
they are. I am sad to say that I would have to include
myself in this group. I am certainly a Christian and I
love the Lord with all my heart, but I find myself
saying and doing things that are not at all Christ like
from time to time. I know many others that really are
Christians that do the same. I am talking about things
like complaining, having a negative attitude, arguing,
saying hateful or unkind things to others, worrying,
anything that we say or do that does not uplift Jesus
and show his love to our family, our friends, and
everyone we meet, is not of God. When we complain
we are sinning. I know that may bother you, it bothers
me, too, because I too complain and the Lord is
showing me that I need to change. If we are all honest
we will see that all of us probably do some of the
thingsOmehtioned above.
Yo.may.be praying for someone to change, for
circumstances, or people to change and things to get
better, but the problem is that the people or the
circumstances may not be able to change until we are
also willing to change. Most people do at times
complain, or argue, or have a negative or bad attitude,
or say unkind things to another, yet we may not think
of them as sin, but God does. God tells us in
Philippians 2:14 "Do everything without complaining
or arguing." When things don't go your way or turn
out just how you thought they would, how do you act?
Do you complain or do you always have a positive
attitude? Many people easily fall into the whiney
attitude. Complaining is a Sign of Being Ungrateful.
Most people have done it from time to time when
things don't go their way or they don't like something.
People whine and make excuses, but the Bible tells us
that complaining and whining are sins. To whine and
complain is showing a bad attitude, that you are
ungrateful and bitter. I will share with you two
examples of scripture concerning complaining. 1
Corinthians 10:10 "And do not grumble, as some of
them did-and were killed by the destroying angel."
Job 10:1 I loathe my very life; therefore I will give
free rein to my complaint and speak out in the
bitterness of my soul." Complaining according to the
Bible is a sin and it can lead people into disobedience.
Many times if people complain it turns into pouting
and definitely causes us to focus on the negative and
forget about all the good things God does in our lives.
We all need to try to keep a positive attitude. Yes,
things will go wrong in our lives. People may
disappoint you, a long awaited trip may be cancelled,
you may not get to do something that you want to do,
the weather may not be the way you like, you may not
have enough money, you might not feel good, but
nothing, absolutely nothing is worth complaining
about. We can spend our time complaining, making
ourselves and everyone around us miserable, and when
we do we are taking our eyes off of God. Instead of
complaining, think about all the wonderful things God
has done for you and blessed you with. You will find
that you will be happier and you will be a positive
Christ like example to those around you. Everyone will

be happier!
God's word has more to show us concerning
complaining. Ephesians 4:29 Do-not let any
unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only
what is helpful for building others up according to
their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."
Ephesians 4:32 "Be kind and compassionate to one
another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God
forgave you." We need to live our lives without anger.
In James 1:20 God says "for man's anger does not
bring about the righteous life that God desires."
Proverbs 15:1 "A gentle answer turns away wrath, but,
a harsh word stirs up anger." You see when we get
angry and we use unkind words we are stirring up
more anger and not living a righteous life. How
many times have you ever gotten mad at someone
over something that really doesn't matter? Think,
about it, maybe you have gotten mad at your
husband because he left his clothes on the floor or
just over something simple that he said, and then
both of you end up mad. How is that helping either
one of you and how is that bringing about a
righteous life? Some of you may have small
children, have you ever gotten mad at them for
making a big mess, or because they were crying?.
Maybe a friend of yours was suppose to go
somewhere with you and cancelled at the last
minute, did you feel angry and complain? I see
people complain to a cashier in a store about the
store not having a certain item they want, now we
all know it is certainly not that poor cashiers fault,
so why ruin his or her day complaining to them?
Things happen all the time and we need to learn to
stop complaining and pray more. All complaining,
negative attitudes, anger and arguing will do is
make you and others unhappy. Why would you
want to do that? It is important that we grab
hold of God's word and listen to what he is saying
to us. "Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen
your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord." Psalms
31:24 That is a really good scripture, it reminds us
that we can have good courage and God will
strengthen our hearts when we put our hope in the
Lord instead of complaining. If many things cause
you to complain then pray about it and ask God to help
you change your attitude and maybe some of the
people or circumstances that are the cause of your
complaining. Once you as a Christian decide that you
do not want any sin of complaining, negativity, and
anger in your life the word of God says in John 8:32"
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set
you free." You see just because people are Christians
does not mean that they are perfect, and many
Christians need to be set free from the bitterness,
complaining, negative attitudes, anger and
ungratefulness. Remember all the wonderful blessings
that you have in your life and be thankful, most people
in the world don't' have the blessings you have.
The ultimate Freedom that we have is the freedom
that comes from salvation. God's word shows us this
in John 8:36 "If the Son therefore shall make you free,

ye shall be free indeed." When we
come to know Jesus as our savior we
find out what real freedom is. We are
no longer slaves to sin, no longer
bound for an eternity without Christ,
but we are free to know Christ, we are
free to rejoice in our salvation. Jesus
has set us free! Since Jesus has set us
free, why would we hold on to
S complaining, anger, arguing,
bitterness, and negative attitudes? Ask
the Lord to help you to be more like
Wft him and stop the negative things in
M_ a your life. As a Christian we need to
stop letting the devil work in our lives,,
we are children of God! Jesus is our
savior, our deliverer, he will change
S our attitudes if we will let him and set
us free! That is the ultimate Freedom.
We live in the greatest nation of the
world, The United States of America.
America is still a nation blessed by
God, and this year as we celebrate our
countries birthday, on the fourth of July, remember to
be thankful to God for allowing you to live in a
country where we still have our freedom. This year
more than ever Christians need to be praying for their
country, there are many problems and a crucial
election ahead and only God can help America.
Remember, to thank God for our nations freedom, but
even more importantly ask him to help you be free
from complaining, arguing, ungratefulness, bitterness
and whining, to make you more Christ like. I hope that
you have a Happy, Blessed Fourth of July!

Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER


TWO KINDS OF FREEDOM


ByPam
Campbell 77
This month, our
country, America
celebrates her
birthday! Most
people celebrate
the Fourth of July.
There are parades,
picnics, contests,
festivals, concerts,
fireworks, and of
course family
gatherings of all
kinds. You will see A
many more
American Flags flying and people wearing
red, white and blue than any other day. It
is a wonderful time to celebrate the
freedom that we have in America.
There is another kind of Freedom that I
would like to talk with you about today,
freedom from sin. There are a lot of
Christian kids and adults that do things
like complaining, having a bad attitude,
arguing, saying unkind things to others,
worrying, anything that we say or do that
does not uplift Jesus and show his love to
our family, our friends, and everyone we
meet, is not of God. When we complain
we are sinning. If we are all honest we
will see that all of us probably do some of
the things mentioned above.
Most kids complain sometimes, or
argue, or have a negative or bad attitude,
or say unkind things to another, yet we
ma) notL think of them as sin, but God
does. God tells us in Philippians 2:14 "Do
everything without complaining or
arguing." When things don't go your way
or they don't turn out just how you*
thought they would, how do you act? Do
you complain or do you always have a
positive attitude? Many kids get the
whiney attitude. People whine and
try to get their way, but the Bible
tells us that complaining and
whining are sins. To whine and
complain is showing a bad
attitude. I will share L% ith you an
example of scripture
concerning complaining. I
Corinthians 10:10 "-And do
not grumble, as some of
them did-and were
killed by the destroying
angel." Complaining
according to the Bible
is a sin and it can lead
people into
disobedience. Man)
times if people
complain it turns
into pouting and
definitely causes ,
us to focus on
the negative and forget about all the good
things God does in our lives.
We all need to try to keep a positive
attitude. Yes, things will go wrong in your
life. Your family may disappoint you, you
may not get to do something that you
want to do, you might not feel good, but
nothing, absolutely nothing is worth
complaining about. We can spend our
time complaining, making ourselves and
everyone around us miserable, and when
we do we are taking our eyes off of God.
Instead of complaining, think about all the
wonderful things God has done for you
and blessed you with. Everyone will be
happier!
God's word has more to show us
concerning complaining. Ephesians 4:29
Do not let any unwholesome talk come
out of your mouths, but only what is
helpful for building others up according to
their needs, that it may benefit those who
listen." Ephesians. 4:32 "Be kind and
compassionate to one another, forgiving
each other, just as in Christ God forgave
you." We need to live our lives without
anger. In James 1:20 God says "for man's
anger does not bring about the righteous
life that God desires." Proverbs 15:1 "A
gentle answer turns away wrath, but a
harsh word stirs up anger." You see when
t we get angry and we use unkind words we
are stirring up more anger and not living a
righteous life. How many times have you
ever gotten mad at someone over
something that really doesn't matter?


Maybe a friend of yours was suppose to
go somewhere with you and changed their
mind at the last minute, did you feel angry
and complain? Maybe the store was out of
your favorite candy, or your mom said
you could not buy a soda, it is not worth
getting mad about or complaining about.
John 8:32 Then you will know the truth,
and the truth will set you free." You see
just because people are Christians does
not mean that they are perfect, and many
Christians need to be set free from
complaining, negative attitudes, and.
anger. Remember all the wonderful
blessings that you have in your life and be
thankful, most people in the world don't'
have the blessings you have.
We live in the greatest nation of the
world, The United States of America.
America is still a nation blessed by God,
and this year as we celebrate our countries
birthday, on the fourth of July, remember
to be thankful to God for allowing you to
live in a country where we still have our
freedom. Remember to ask him to help
you be free from complaining, arguing,
and whining, to make you more like
Jesus. I hope that you have a Happy,
SBlessed Fourth of July!

More than 70 countries across the globe now have some form of freedom
of information legislation. Such laws vary by country, but typically
provide public access to government information or records. In the United
States, the Freedom of Information Act became law in 1966 under then-
President Lyndon Johnson. The Act was then updated with the Electronic
Freedom of Information Act amendments under President Bill Clinton in
1996. While the act only applied to federal agencies, all of the states and
territories have statutes requiring the disclosure of information by state and
local governments. The United Kingdom enacted their own Freedom of
Information Act in 2000, while Canada's Access to Information Act in
1983 allowed citizens access to government-controlled information. The
trailblazer for freedom of information legislation is believed to be Sweden,
who enacted their Freedom of the Press Act in 1766. though the act at that
time was far more limited that the more open acts of today, including
since-updated laws in Sweden. 436148-F

Local historian and North Florida Community College (NFCC) Emeriti Joe Akerman, left, was recently the guest speaker at the
unveiling and dedication ceremony of a permanent historical marker at the Punta Rassa public boat ramp in Lee County. The
plaque informs visitors of the thousands of cattle that were loaded onto ships departing for the West Indies and Key West
between 1866 and 1918. Akerman is a Florida Cattle Industry historian and author of, "Florida Cowman, A History of the
Florida Cattle Raising." Akerman is pictured at the Punta Rassa marker with Cracker Cowboy Butch Harrison of Live Oak, right.


War comes closer to home for class via video link


By Julianna Parker
The Transcript
Norman, Okla.
A new type of class will
launch this fall at the
University of Oklahoma.
Instead of learning about
the Iraq war from a book,
students will be taught by
an imbedded journalist
via Web-based video
conferencing. OU
alumnus Mike Boettcher
will co-teach the class
from the war zone. The
class coincides with a
project he recently
launched to produce
better coverage of the
war. Boettcher reported
on wars for 28 years as a
broadcast journalist for
CNN and NBC. But he
became frustrated with
the way the U.S. media
covered war. Thousands
of soldiers were sent
overseas to protect the
U.S., but the media didn't
show the same dedication,


Boettcher said. Instead of
faithfully reporting on the
wars in Afghanistan and
Iraq, most news services
just intermittently check
in with the troops, he said.
Boettcher wants to change
that. Starting this week,
he will be imbedded with
the U.S. troops for 15
months the same amount
of time as a soldier's
deployment.
The U.S. Army has fully
supported Boettcher's
project, he said, giving
him travel orders that
allow him to go anywhere
he wants. "They want the
story out," he said of the
soldiers who have to
spend long months away
from family in the 120-
degree heat. Boettcher
decided this would be the
perfect opportunity to
create a new kind of class
for students to learn about
war coverage. The class,
"War and the Media," will
be co-taught by Boettcher,


through a video uplink,
and Messitte. It is cross-
listed in both IAS and
journalism, and the class
will be made up of half
IAS students and half
journalism students. The
class also will focus on
two different aspects,
Messitte said. Students
will learn about current
events, studying :how the
media are covering the
war. Also, students will
study how the media have
historically covered war.
Students will do a mix of
readings, content analysis
and group projects.
Brian Blackstock, IAS
senior, said he heard about
the War and the Media
class from his adviser. It
sounded great, but he was
skeptical about it until he
heard Messitte would be
'teaching it. "I feel like it
actually sounds like it
might turn out like they
wanted it to," Blackstock
said. He's never heard of a,


class this ambitious. "I've
never had anything with
this kind of technical
stuff," he said. "I'm excite.
Students will be able to
ask questions in class as
he watches them over the
Internet too. Boettcher
also will have discussions
online and students will be
able to keep up with him
as he updates his Web site
every day. Students will
be able to give him input
on what he's doing. The
students, Boettcher said,
will "be part of the
editorial process with us
as we basically take on the
big networks." "I'm really
excited about this course,"
he said. "This is a national
championship game for
higher education. This is
as good as it gets."
