Firefighters have been

'They are about two miles
apart," says Johnny Sabo of

the fires extend from south
Calhoun County into north-
ern Gulf County. "We're call-

COMPLAINT


Sheriff


cleared


in voting


complaint
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Florida Elections
Commission (FEC) issued an
order last week clearing
Sheriff David Tatum of any
wrongdoing following a com-
plaint on behalf of an inmate
who didn't vote during the
last election.
According to the FEC
report, former Calhoun
County Clerk of Court Willie
D. Wise filed the complaint
against Tatum back on
September 29, 2005, alleg-
ing Tatum prevented inmate
Joey Bright from voting in
the 2004 election.
An affidavit signed by
Bright's wife, Michelle
Bright, indicates she went to
the county jail about 8:30
a.m. on election day and
inquired about how to help
her husband vote. The jailer
wasn't sure, took Bright's
work number, and Bright
went to her job. Around 4:50
p.m., Bright called the jail
and spoke with another jail-
er who didn't know how her
husband might get a ballot.
Bright then contacted the
local elections office and was
offered an absentee ballot
which she delivered to the
jail around 5:30 p.m. She
said Sheriff Tatum told her
the matter should have been
handled earlier. Bright
returned to the Elections
Office where an attorney on
the canvassing board assist-
ed her, drafted a writ, and
had County Judge Kevin
Grover contact the Sheriff
who did not accept the writ.
After another order was
issued, the ballot was taken
to Bright, but did not reach
the Elections Office until
after 7 p.m. and was not
accepted.
In his response to the
complaint, Sheriff Tatum
stated he was not aware of
Bright's situation until 5:30
p.m. after the inmates were
secured for the evening. He
further noted that Bright
"did not take advantage of
the 30 days of early voting
available to her and Mr.
Bright" and "Mr. Bright did
not ask Sheriff Tatum or his
staff for an opportunity to
vote. Mr. Bright was not
denied his right to vote."
In their ruling, the FEC
concurred, stating, "Mr. and
Mrs. Bright had sufficient
opportunities to obtain an
absentee ballot prior to the
date of this election."

History in motion



Log cabin moved




to the Settlement
The historic log cabin that has been a Blountstown High
School landmark for decades was relocated to the Panhandle
Pioneer Settlement Thursday. Shortly after 8 a.m., a crew from
Ducky Johnson House Movers lifted the frail structure from it's
site on North Main and made the journey to Sam Atkins Park.
The majority of city residents lost power for a short time during
the trek as power lines were removed along the path. City of
Blountstown utility workers, along with crews from Gulf Coast
Electric Cooperative, West Florida Electric Cooperative, and
Florida Public Utilities, did an outstanding job getting the lines
back up. Law enforcement officers, county workers, and
inmates from Calhoun Correctional Institution also assisted in
the effort. Settlement volunteers hope to have the log cabin
restored within a year, providing another venue for community
events, as well as educational opportunities. According to
Frances Price of the Settlement Board, "If everyone that has
been through the cabin's doors would give $5, we'd have
more than enough to restore it." Check out the letters to the
editor on page 4 for more on the cabin's move.

Letter to the Editor:
WE DID IT!!!!
This means you, the whole
community, that it took to
move our beloved old Log
Cabin/Club House from the
high school campus to the
Pioneer Settlement. It
arrived in good condition and
no, the termites did not quit
holding hands.
How and whom should we
thank for this super human
effort that made it all hap-
pen. What a joy it was to see
all those brave, strong men,
each representing a different
utility company, and the city
and county law enforcement,
our city and county govern-
ment, Tim Jenks the inmates
from CCI who cleared the
right of way and the house
movers all ivorking in total
unity and cooperation to
reach a common goal. Folks,
the spirit of small town
America is not dead, the spir-
it of neighbor helping neigh-
bor is still alive. Why even
our neighbor to the south,
Wewahitchka, sent trucks
and workers from Gulf Coast
Electric to help the city
restore power as quickly as
possible so as not to incon-
venience the citizens of
Blountstown. Not once was
there impatience from the
stress or tempers to flare.
Leading the force and syn-
chronizing- the whole project
was our own home grown
son, Marc Tomlinson, proba-
bly the youngest of the men.
Jimmy Elkins and the other
city electrician's ably outdid
themselves and didn't they
improve the skyline in front
of the high school? Notice it
when you drive to the post
office. Gone are the heavy
lines with poles leaning every
which way. In their place
stand brand new tall,
straight poles on the opposite
side of the street, speaking a
much better welcome to our
city.
Thank you all from the
bottom of our hearts for
whatever part you have
played, and it took us all, in
the relocation of our old club
house. Give us about a year
and we will have rehabilitat-
ed it and once again .the
whole town will have access
to the building which holds
so many fond memories for
us.

Dunn, Willard Smith and the
whole membership of

Regarding the dangerously

This is in response to
Rodney Barretto's (chairman

the editor (Calhoun Liberty
Journal 5-24-06) in an
apparent attempt to ease the

being killed by a monster alli-

number of alligators to be
removed from the wild,
except those they could get
money for, has caused the
alligator population to
increase to the point that
monster alligators are in
practically every body of
water in the state. Some
areas in Florida have not had
any alligators removed in
over fifty years.
G&F/FWCC have always
managed the alligators strict-
ly for revenue to the agency;
not for the well being of the
alligator and the right's of the
people.
The records show that
people are killed only by
monster alligators, seven feet
and longer. Before
G&F/FWCC took over man-
agement of the alligators,
monster alligators were never
allowed to accumulate in or
near populated areas, where
over time they would lose
their fear of people and
become aggressive and dan-
gerous. In June of 2003,
Brian Griffin a twelve year
old boy was killed by a mon-
ster 10 foot 4 inch alligator as
he swam near Tavares,
Florida. In response F&WCC
as usual mouthed the same
old platitudes, only so many
people killed by alligators in
so many years, you are more
apt to be struck by lighten-
ing, etc., But took no action
that addressed the state wide
problem. The fact that eleven
monster alligators were
found near where Brian was
killed, show how out of con-
trol and dangerous the alliga-
tor population was. Allowing
monster alligators to congre-
gate in those numbers which
no doubt endangers people is
not only incompetent, it is
criminal negligence.
After two people were
killed by alligators on Sanibel
Island,.. which F&WCC had
allowed to become an alliga-
tor sanctuary, F&WCC took
out seventy alligators that
were over 4 feet. F&WCC's
only other reaction was to
issue an elaborate nuisance
alligator reporting card. A
case of closing the stable

Park Trammell, Jr. shares guest editorial



City complex could be key




to downtown revitalization


BY PARK TRAMMELL, JR.

S Note: Mr.
Trammell is a
S Blountstown
.. native, now liv-
S. ing in
i Tallahassee,
whose family
members were
PARK TRAMMELL, JR. me er ere
among the origi-
nal residents of this communi-
ty.
Just over 100 years ago
our forefathers had the vision
and wisdom to build a new
courthouse for Calhoun
County that served as a com-
munity focal point for three-
fourths of a century and con-
tinues to stand as an
acknowledged hallmark of
Romanesque Revival archi-
tecture. At a time when there
were no paved streets or elec-
tric lights in Blountstown,
those early citizens looked
beyond the short-term need
to replace the old wooden
courthouse near the
Apalachicola River by con-
structing a new brick build-
ing designed by a well-
known architect and very
expensive for that day that
would meet the needs of a
growing county for many
years into the future.
Today the City of
Blountstown finds itself in a
similar situation. There is a
pressing need to replace the
aging city police station,
which occupies a converted
residence on Lake Hilda,
across Central Avenue from
the City Hall. For some time
city officials have been debat-
ing the question of how to go
about meeting the police
department's needs. Recent
discussion has centered on
locating a new police station
on the property owned by the
city at the northwest corner
of Highways 20 and 71
(Central Avenue and Main
Street). Clearly, this is the
most visible and strategically
located intersection in
Blountstown. Any structure
built on that corner will make,
a strong statement about our
community that will be seen
by all those who pass
through town as well as those
who shop and live here.
At one point the City
Council considered moving
forward with construction of
a utilitarian structure on this
site that, although providing
needed space for the police
department, would do little to
enhance the attractiveness of
downtown Blountstown.
History tells us that con-
struction of a new building
will be a "50- to 75-year deci-
sion." It would be very short-
sighted it would be "penny-
wise and pound-foolish" to
do anything that would not
be a credit to the community
for many decades to come.

others' bold decision to build
the 1904 courthouse reminds
us of the importance of mak-
ing a solid investment in the
future.
Mayor Deason and the
Council members should be
commended for their willing-
ness to delay a decision to
allow for thorough study of
the possibility of building a
multi-phase municipal com-
plex that would permit the
fullest utilization of the prop-
erty with a design that would
be a credit to the community.
A police station would be the
first component constructed.
By approaching the matter in
this manner, our city officials
are taking a bold, yet respon-
sible, step that will serve
Blountstown well for many
years to come.
No one can argue that
Blountstown's decaying
downtown area needs a shot
in the arm. In recent years,
empty storefronts have near-
ly outnumbered active busi-
nesses. Several years ago the
city took a positive step by
converting a downtown block
into Magnolia Park but not
much else.changed until ear-
lier this year, when the row of
buildings on the north side of
Central Avenue was demol-
ished to make way for con-
struction of a new Wakulla
Bank building. Bank offi-
cials, including President
Walter Dodson and localVice
President Vicki Montford,
have committed to build a
facility that would be archi-

the downtown area by tying
together architecturally key
buildings on Central Avenue

Bank and a new City of


Blountstown facility at the

an immediate need to accom-

Depression is one
response to frustration.. In
depression there seems to be
a mood of sadness, a feeling
of the 'blue', a feeling of being
worried and pessimistic
toward life. Also common to
depression is irritability.
Often the person is aware of
the problem, but feels unable
to cope or to do anything to
correct it.
I am not speaking about
temporary bouts of mild
depression we sometimes
refer to as the 'blues' or
'being in the dumps.' These
are normal periods in our
lives that sometimes follow
an emotionally upsetting
experience.
However, long lasting peri-
ods of depression is sympto-
matic of neurosis. Many
times the depth of the
depression is totally out of
proportion to the seriousness
of the problem. And one
thing we need to understand
is 'that the ,person thus
depressed is, by and large,
unable to help themselves.
So often we either say or
think that the persons
should 'get a life,' pull them-
selves out of the depression
and get on with life. But the
person cannot do this. No
one is depressed because

they want to be.
Dr. Clyde Narramore
wrote: "Depression is a con-
dition marked by feelings of
worthlessness, dejection and
worry. The depressed person
is an unhappy individual
with a pessimistic outlook on
life." The depressed person
may worry constantly over
some act committed years
earlier but is unable to
remove the feelings of guilt
and concern.
Again, Dr. Narramore
writes: "Because he feels
unworthy and sinful, he mis-
interprets the Word of God byi
giving attention only to those
verses which judge and con-
demn. He seems unable to
accept the gracious plan of
God's love and forgive-
ness....because he feels he is
unworthy of love and forgive-
ness."
Sometimes the depressed
person responds to. counsel-
ing. Some cases need to see
a medical doctor for medica-
tion to aid them in overcom-
ing the depression.

MILITARY NEWS


Air Force Airman Timothy E.
McCutcheon has graduated
from basic military training at
Lackland Air Force Base, San
Antonio, Texas.
During the six weeks of train-
ing, the airman studied the Air
Force mission, organization, and
military customs and courtesies;
performed drill and ceremony
marches, and received physical
training, rifle marksmanship,
field training exercises, and spe-
cial training in human relations.
In addition, airmen who com-
plete basic training earn credits
toward an associate degree
through the Community College
of the Air Force.
McCutcheon is the son of
Terrie McCutcheon, and grand-
son of Roy Wood, both of Altha,
Fla.
He is a 2003 graduate of
Altha Public School.


A traffic stop Thursday ended
in the arrest of a Perry man with
drugs packaged to sell.
Derek Cook, 36, was charged
with possession of cocaine and
marijuana with intent to sell and
driving while his license was sus-
pended or revoked.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, Lt. Adam
Terry pulled Cook over on SR 20
approximately 14 miles west of
Blountstown around 11 p.m. for
speeding. He noticed two items
fly out the passenger window as
he initiated the stop. The driver,
later identified as Cook, admitted
he didn't have a license due to a
marijuana possession charge. Lt.
Terry asked if he had any drugs
on him and he reportedly stated,
"I have a couple of nickel bags of
marijuana in my left front pock-
et." Lt. Terry then removed six,
one-gram bags of marijuana from
his pocket and placed him under
arrest.
Dep. Eddie Dalton arrived to
assist and a search of the vehicle
turned up three plastic bags of
cocaine. Recovered from the
ditch were a notebook, brown
paper bag with cigar tobacco,
and marijuana residue.
A passenger in the vehicle,
Audra Kaye Ancog, 23, was
charged with tampering with evi-
dence since she threw the "blunt
bag" out the window. She was
also charged with violation of
state probation.
Both remained in custody at
press time.

gram starts with a personal
interview and continues
throughout the ten weeks
with various computer,
healthcare literacy and net-
working projects. The
research program is two
hours per week for ten
weeks. Here the elders in
Blountstown can create their
idea of what long-term care
they value and how they
want to deal with the numer-
ous ambiguities that they'
find. The'elders form an
elder network, which can be
rich in their choice of bridg-
ing devices that they design


and institute within the ten
week program.
Interested participants are
encouraged to come and see
what they think about this
unique and fun program
designed with and for elders
living in the Blountstown
area. For more information,
call 674-8773.

Adams honored on retirement

Mrs. Linda Adams was honored at a retirement celebration
Sunday, May 21, at the Pioneer Settlement for her 35 years of
music instruction in Calhoun County Schools. Through her years
she taught piano, voice, chorus and drama in our school sys-
tems. During the festivities, several of her former students sang
solos to her and a chorus ensemble performed. All those she
has taught, as well as those who have been entertained by her
choral groups for so many years, appreciate her time, sweat
and dedication to bringing music and culture to our commu-
nity. She will surely be missed. Mrs. Adams is pictured above with
her son, Tim, as he presents her with an engraved vase to com-
memorate the occasion.

At Walter F George Lake and Lake Seminole...



Water remains low


The U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers at the
Apalachicola,
Chattahoochee, Flint (ACF)
Project Management Office in
Fort Gaines GA, has
announced that reservoir lev-
els at Lakes Walter F. George
and Seminole are likely to
remain low through the
month of June.

ACF Operations Manager
Bill Smallwood is advising all
lake users to be cautious and


to pay close attention to safe-
ty during this time. "Public
access to the lakes is not sig-
nificantly limited at these lev-
els, but we are reminding
boaters and swimmers to
watch out for underwater
hazards. There are stumps
and trees in Lakes Seminole
and Walter F. George that
were left in the reservoirs to
improve fishing and fish
structure. There are also
underwater shoals and other
shallow areas that might


cause boats to run aground.
We want boaters to proceed
with caution and use the
marked navigation channels
when they are moving from
one area to another," said
Smallwood.

These channels, which are
marked with buoys and other
navigational aids, are free of
hazards for the most part.
Smallwood cautioned
swimmers and waders to be
mindful of drop-offs.


THIS UNUSUAL SAGO PALM caught the attention of Bobbie Lou Williams
of Blountstown. Williams, who has had the plant for the past decade,
says it typically has just one bloom, but recently sprouted three full
cones which is quite rare. Williams' yard in Live Oak Heights is filled with
beautiful plants, flowers, and unique garden decor.

y Rons. IAdh_ A4 A nn


If you want to get Dad
something nice'-- but not too
expensive -- for Father's Day,
and you want it to give him
years of enjoyment, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has a deal for you.
You need to act promptly,
though. Buy him a five-year
freshwater fishing license
before Father's Day, and he'll
receive a package of free fish-
ing equipment in the mail
automatically within three
weeks..
The license costs $61.50
and provides for five full
years of great freshwater
fishing opportunities in the
"Fishing Capital of the
World." The license is a great
hedge against inflation that
may cause price increases in
future licenses. Anglers can
check MyFWC.com/Fishing


to make sure the FWC hasn't
run out of the free tackle
organizer, lures, hooks, bait
saver, fishing towel and pub-
lications, among other things
that will go to people who
take advantage of the offer.
All license sales directly
support fish and wildlife con-
servation in Florida. In addi-
tion, every licensed angler
helps Florida recover more
federal excise taxes under the
Federal Aid in Sport Fish
Restoration program.
Five-year freshwater fish-
ing licenses are available
online at MyFWC.com, over
the counter at tax collectors'
offices and license agents or
by calling 1-888-FISH
FLORIDA.

This group from Altha is taking part in World Changers, a missions drive with the goal of complet-
ing over 90 projects across the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico.


Altha team preparing



for World Changers trip


What do you plan to do
this summer? An energetic
group of teenagers and their
adult sponsors had a great
day of working in preparation
for another trip to World
Changers this summer.
Eleven youth and nine adults
will be attending this year's
World Changer event in the
Lanett/Valley, AL area.
World Changers is a coed-
ucational missions experi-
ence combining mission edu-
cation and missions involve-
ment and is sponsored by the
North American Mission
Board of the Southern
Baptist Convention. Students
learn missions firsthand by
becoming personally involved
in meeting needs of people.
World Changers stresses
hands-on involvement of stu-
dents through their partici-
pation in a variety of commu-
nity. ministries and home
construction and renovation
work. Projects are located in


CHARLES MILTON SPOONER
Mr. Charles Milton Spooner,
78, was called home to heaven
by his sover-
eign Lord and I
Savior. ,on
February 22,
2006.
A former 'i '
long-time res-
ident of both
the Miami
area and
Burnsville,
NC, Charlie
had returned
during his
retirement to live in Altha, his
boyhood home. The Spooner
family homestead was originally
built by his parents on land
given to them by his beloved
maternal grandfather and men-
tor, T.J. Bodiford. This property
was precious to Charlie; he also
felt very connected to the sur-
rounding countryside that held
so many fond memories of his
youth and family history. He
recently commented that there
were few farm fields in and
around Altha that he had not
labored in at some point in his
life.
A veteran of the U.S. Navy,
Charlie met and married his
lifetime sweetheart and wife of
57 years, Florence Appleby,
while both were students at
Florida State University. He
subsequently transferred to the
University of Florida and gradu-
ated with a degree in engineer-
ing in 1954.
Career opportunities eventu-
ally took Charlie and his family
to the Miami. area, and in the
late 1950's he founded Driver
and Spooner, a civil engineering
firm which designed many high-
ways, bridges, and other struc-
tures in the Miami area and
elsewhere. Charlie served on
the Board of Engineer
Examiners for the state of
Florida, and he was an active
member, elder, and Sunday
School teacher at Galloway


high need, low-income com-
munities where people live at
or below the United States
poverty level.
These youth and adults
have been busy with many
fundraisers throughout the
past few months in prepara-
tion for this trip. Each partic-
ipant is asked to pay their
own way in order to attend.
Lodging for the week will be
the local high school in
Lanett, AL. Each day during
the week, these participants
will work with their assigned
work crew on one of the 20
projects which have been
chosen for this ministry site.
Evenings will include wor-
ship services and church
group devotions.
In 2006, World Changers
will host the theme "@ Work"
and will seek to complete
over 90 projects across the
United States, Canada and
Puerto Rico. We pray that our
work at each site in 2006 will


Orthodox Presbyterian Church
for many years.
Wanting a change of pace
and longing to live in the moun-
tains where they often vaca-j
tioned, Charlle and Florene
moved to NC in 1977. Always
an innovative businessman, he
established Spooner's Nursery
there, and *enjoyed a second
career growing and selling orna-
mental shrubbery and
'Christmas trees for twenty
years.
Charlie loved being outdoors
he liked to hunt, fish, and
build -- but one of his greatest
joys in life was planting, tend-
ing, and harvesting the biggest
vegetable garden he could man-
age. He was a patriotic man,
and believed in being politically
active and informed. Above all,
however, he believed that "the
chief end of man is to glorify
God and to enjoy Him forever."
(Westminister Catechism)
Charlie is survived by his
beloved wife, Florene; daugh-
ters, Charlene Spooner
Greentree and LindaS Spooner
Page (husband Bill); grandchil-
dren, Bryan and Cara Page; sis-
ters, Velma Hall .(husband
Hubert) and Thelma Hall (hus-
band Lee Roy) of Winter Haven;
brother, Dale Spooner (wife
Janice) of Tallahassee; and is
predeceased by brother Earl
Spooner (wife Margaret) of

The picture shown above
was snapped at the end of a
hard, hot and fulfilling day of
work at a local home in Altha.
It is suggested that each
group attending complete a
local missions project before
attending World Changers.
This group has done several
in recent months, but this
one was done in conjunction
with a pre-project study they
were having. The youth and
their sponsors will be attend-

Police awarded new traffic safety sign

After the 2005 Labor Day "Buckle Up Florida" campaign, all Florida Law Enforcement agen-
cies who participated were entered into a drawing to receive one of three sign trailers. The
Blountstown Police Department was selected as one of only three winners in the entire state.
This drawing was sponsored by Buckle Up Florida and the Florida Department of Transportation.
The sign is solar powered and only takes a few minutes to deploy. Countless messages and ani-
mations can be displayed in highly visible amber LEDs. Pictured here with the new sign is BPD
Police Chief Glenn Kimbrel and Sgt. Fred Tanner.

BPD license and



vehicle checks set


The Blountstown Police
Department will be conduct-
ing driver license and vehicle
inspection checkpoints dur-
ing the week of June 7th
through June 14th on South
Main St., Angle St., Central
Ave., and River St. in the City
of Blountstown.
Recognizing the danger
presented to the public by
defective vehicle equipment,
Officers will concentrate their
efforts on vehicles being


operated with defects such as
bad brakes, worn tires and
defective lighting equipment.
In addition, attention will be
directed drivers who would
violate the driver license laws
of Florida.
The Blountstown Police

checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equip-
ment and driver license laws
of Florida while ensuring the
protection of all motorists.

Folk Heritage Awards


The historic Calhoun County Courthouse stands as an acknowledged hallmark of
Romanesque Revival architecture. It was recently featured in a calendar highlighting unique
courthouses.


Trammell Editorial cont'd-


constructed 66 years ago in
an era when city operations
were far simpler than today.
This realization sets the stage
for envisioning an attractive
new municipal complex at
the corner of Central and
Main that would become a
key element in a revitalized
downtown and would serve a
growing city for many years
into the future. After meet-
ing with police officials, pres-
ent and former Blountstown
residents, and Main Street
representatives, Marianna
architect Paul Donofro, Jr.,
recently presented to the
Blountstown City Council a
preliminary site plan .and
conceptual rendering for
developing the property. (See
accompanying drawing.)
Some people find it diffi-
cult to envision growth in
Blountstown and Calhoun
County. Certainly there has
been little growth here over
the past century. And with
that track record, it's under-
standable why some folks
scoff at predictions of signifi-
cant growth in our area with-
in"'the' niet few years. But
the experts who monitor
demographic, economic and
land use trends, see the wave
of population explosion and
economic development that
began in south and central
Florida moving unalterably
into our area. We need to
prepare for that growth so we
can accommodate it wisely
while preserving and main-
taining the heritage and val-
ues we cherish by revitalizing
the community into an
attractive place for living and
shopping and a place that
provides economic opportu-
nity for our citizens.
An initial effort to secure
state funding this year for


development of a master plan
for a new municipal complex
was unsuccessful. Although
the Florida legislature
included $125,000 for that
purpose in the proposed
budget, Governor Bush
vetoed it. But, in truth, the
request was made too late
this year to have much
chance of approval. Senator
Al Lawson and
Representative Marti Coley
already have committed to
seek a much larger allocation
for the project in the 2007
state budget and more time
will be available to lobby for a
successful outcome. This
year city officials were suc-
cessful in securing $600,000
in state funding for waste-
water system improvements
and next year the city could
secure major state funding
for the municipal complex.
Meantime, life goes on in
Blountstown. Chief Glenn
Kimbrel and the police
department face critical
space needs. But some
viable possibilities exist for
interim police department
spade while plans move for-
ward for a new municipal
complex.

Another key piece in the
downtown redevelopment
plan could be a new Calhoun
County Jail. Funding
received from the state this
year moves that project clos-
er to reality. The new jail
could be designed to blend
architecturally with the
styles of the old courthouse,
the new Wakulla Bank and a
new municipal complex.
With these four major build-
ing blocks in place, our
downtown would be well on
the way to becoming the

door after the horse got out.
And another stark reminder
there was too many alliga-
tors.
When you add the three
women that were recently
killed by alligators; if that
doesn't show a trend what
would? Barretto stated to the
affect, not a trend. F&WCC's
response to those tragic alli-
gator killings have been very
disappointing.
In addition to taking the
seventy alligators from
Sanibel Island the only other
actions was to issue an elab-
orate card to aid in reporting
a nuisance alligator and
extending the alligator hunt-
ing season, which doesn't
start until next August 15th,
through October. Here is the
kicker! It will cost at least
$324 to kill an alligator if you
want to have some one with
you; to have and I Quote
F&WCC "unlike any other
experience imaginable."
They should have said the
most dangerous experience
imaginable as that is catch-
ing the alligator before you
can kill it, which is as dan-
gerous .as alligator wrestling.
This unreasonable cost will
severely restrict the number
of hunters.
F&WCC will issue four
thousand alligator hunting
permits. Records show that
sometimes less than half of
the permits issued result in
an alligator killed. Add those
taken in the hunt to the nui-
sance alligators taken, all of
which will not amount to a
pea in the dish, to reduce the
alligator population to 'a tol-
erable level, as fish and
wildlife estimate there are at


least one million alligators in
Florida. Probably an under-
estimation.
Chairman Barretto's letter
to the editor proves he does
not begin to comprehend the
scope and seriousness of
Florida's alligator problem.
Makes me wonder if any of
the other members of
F&WCC understand the true
situation. But, who would
expect a country boy from
Coral Cables as Barretto
refers to him self, to be savvy
of and have a solution for the
alligator problem. Not I..

The only practical, eco-
nomical and timely way to
reduce the number of alliga-
tors to a tolerable level, yet
not threaten their existence,
is to have a year round hunt-
ing season open to the pub-
lic, with reasonable, practical
and safe methods of harvest.
Allowing the killing of alliga-
tors seven feet and longer.
Of course this will greatly
reduce F&WCC revenue from
the alligators. But which is
more important, alligator rev-
enue to F&WCC or the safety
of Florida's people enabling
them to enjoy the great out-
doors with some peace of
mind. F&WCC lame excuses
which ignore the problem
won't do the job and Florida's
people will continue to be in
great danger from the numer-
ous monster alligators.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due-to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following
three things made car shopping a big
headache for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come UP with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag
