The County Record, AUGUST 22, 2007, Page 2


ILETEST H EDITOR]


Dear Editor and Calhoun
County citizens,
A legal notice appeared in
last week's County Record
that could affect many of us.
Because of the notice's small
print and the fact that it was
to appear in the paper only
one day, this legal notice may
have "slipped by" many peo-
ple who may be affected by it.
According to the legal
notice, Woerner
Development, Inc. has
applied for a Water use
Permit from the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District that would allow
them to withdraw almost
three and a half million gal-
lons of water daily from the
Florida Aquifer System for
agricultural irrigation use. I
have a number of concerns
about the effect this permit
would have on me, my neigh-
bors, other citizens, and our
natural resources if it is
granted.
The general withdrawal
location in the legal notice is
given as T01S, R11W, Sec.
11, 12 in Calhoun County. I
live in this area of Calhoun
County - the sand hills at
Juniper Creek and Highway
20 about eight miles west of
Clarksville - and next to the
thousand acres that Woerner
Development is busy clearing
to grow sod. It bothers me
that Woerner seems to
believe that their Water Use
Permit is a "done deal" even
though the concerns of those
of us who may be affected by
their water use have not even
been heard yet.
Here are some of these
concerns. What effect would
the withdrawal of three and a
half million gallons of water a
day have on my water sup-
ply? Many people in the
county have had to deepen
their wells in recent months -


I don't want to have to deep-
en mine. Will the withdrawal
of three and a half million
gallons of water a day change
Juniper Creek as we know it?
If Juniper Creek is affected,
how will this affect our wild
life? What will the run-off of
pesticides and fertilizers from
this thousand acres being
carried by three and a half
million gallons of water a day
do to my drinking water,
pond, Juniper Creek, the
Chipola River and our other
natural resources? I don't
want to see our most valu-
able resources be exploited
for profit and to provide grass
for development communities
at the beaches and else-
where.
I am requesting the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District's "Staff
Report on Proposed Agency
Action" to see whether or not
my concerns have been ade-
quately considered and our
interests protected. It is
important for interested per-
sons to know that this staff
report must be requested in
writing in order for them to
remain advised of further
proceedings and any public
hearing date. Comments or
requests for the staff report
on proposed agency action
must be received by 5'clock
p.m. August 30, 2007 to be
considered. This correspon-
dence should be sent to:

Eubanks named 'Member of the Year'



Regional Workforce Board celebration


The Chipola Regional
Workforce Board celebrated
another year of success by
recognizing individual suc-
cess, employers of excellence,
and board members of dis-
tinction at their annual meet-
ing August 9 in Marianna.
Among those recognized
was Gina Robinson of
Marianna who, after being
dislocated due to the closure
of the Sykes call center, took
advantage of workforce pro-
grams to become retrained
and enter the nursing profes-
sion.
Chair Zenna Corbin
awarded five members the
Chair's Award. The five have
been members since the first
day the board provided serv-
ice and have served their
communities on board since
1996. The five, Joe Shuler of
Liberty County, Rita Maupin
of Calhoun County, Tom
Jenkins of Holmes County,
Bill Hopkins Jackson


County, and Johnny
Eubanks of Liberty County.
Eubanks was also recog-
nized as the Board Member of
the Year. This selection is
made through a process of
nominations from board
members and then review
and selected by a board com-
mittee. Committee Chairman
Raymond Russell said the
committee faced a daunting
challenge given that so many
wonderful people volunteer
their time to the board.
The Board also recognized
several employers of the year.
Georgia-Pacific's Hosford
Oriented Strand Board plant
was named as the Employer
of the Year for Calhoun and
Liberty Counties. Kate Hester
accepted the award for the
company and thanked the
workforce board and their
One-Stop Career Centers for
providing "excellent service"
for the company.
Anderson Columbia in


Marianna was named as the
overall Employer of the Year.
In accepting the award for
the company Gene Strickland
noted that he really couldn't
understand, "why anyone
that needs employees would
fail to use the One-Stops and
all of the services available to
employers."
Strickland said, "They've
helped us find some really
solid employees, helped us
meet our training needs, and
just been a real pleasure to
work with anytime we use
their services."
The Chipola Regional
Workforce Development
Board, Inc. is a non-profit
organization led by volunteer
members that oversee job
training and employer driven
initiatives in Calhoun,
Holmes, Jackson, Liberty
and Washington Counties.


Chipola Regional Workforce Development Board Chair Zenna Corbin (not pictured) awarded the Chair's
Award to members of the board that have had continuous service to the board since service operations began
in 1996. Those receiving the award were, pictured above left to right, Joe Shuler and Johnny Eubanks of Liberty
County, Bill Hopkins of Jackson County, Tom Jenkins of Holmes County and (not pictured) Rita Maupin of
Calhoun County. Corbin said the Board Was successful due in large part to the commitment of members like
these that have seen the importance of serving their communities through volunteering of time in support of our
mission to help our residents gain meaningful' employment.


Johnny Eubanks, left, receives the Chipola Regional Workforce
Development Board's Board Member of the Year Award from Vice-Chairman
Raymond Russell. Each year the organization selects a Board Member of the
Year from those board members nominated by their peers. All nominations
are then reviewed by a committee of board members before the committee
makes the final decision. Eubanks, a charter member of the board as well as
a former chairman, has been involved with workforce programs for decades
and was recognized for his commitment to the board and his efforts to make
sure all of the residents and employers of the five counties served by the
board gain the most possible benefit from workforce services

Calhoun County 'grannies'


take on the Grand Canyon


BY JOAN ALDERMAN
My cousin, Ruth Attaway,
and I recently went on a road
trip out West. We drove from
Calhoun. County to New
Mexico, then to the Grand
Canyon in Arizona, back
through Mesa' Verde in
Colorado, and from there we
headed home.
We went through lots of
small towns, and we saw
hundreds of miles of' farm
and ranch lands. We were
headed down highway 82
about forty miles away from
Texarkana when a man in a
truck waved to us, turned
around and chased us down.
I knew immediately that I
had a flat on the camper
trailer. I pulled over, and he
stopped and changed our
tire. Another fellow who
knew him pulled over also,
and he had a socket wrench
that made the changing easi-
er. All they accepted was a
"thanks".
We stopped at a road side
yard sale in New Mexico, and
a fellow told us about the
Holy Ghost Trail that had a
nice campground up the
Pecos Canyon not far from
Santa Fe, New Mexico. He
said that it was the only place
in the world where these red
flag-like lilies grew. We
bounced and crawled up a
single-track road, full of pot-
holes. We took a hike, saw
the lilies, and spent the
night. By the time we got
back down the next day; we
had torn up the fitting that
plugged the trailer to my
truck. I was wallowing
around on the asphalt at a
Chevron station trying to fig-
ure out what to. do when a
woman who was being.
dragged around by a huge
poodle looking dog hollered


up her husband who fixed it.
They also told us how to get
to their campground where
we camped for the night.
After we left Santa Fe, we
headed to Chama, New
Mexico to take a train ride.
We camped at a campground
on a river. The host helped
us hook up and gave us some
leveling boards. Chama is a
small town in a mountain
valley where everyone works,
even the children. Not just
teenagers, children ten and
up bussed tables and served
customers. There is just over
eleven thousand year round
residents in the valley. When
I commented how all the
young people worked, a teen
said,. 'That's the only way we
can get everything done." We
left Chama and headed for
the north rim of-'the Grand
Canyonr We drove through
some of the most amazingly
strange country we had ever
seen. Barren land with sud-
den deep gashes, and huge
monument rocks. This land
has an eerie beauty all its
own. We never got lost, but
we did get temporarily con-
fused and drove a hundred
miles out of the way.
Somewhere along the way my
cousin, Ottie (Ruth Attaway),
was bitten by a tick and
ended up with Rocky
Mountain Spotted fever.
Although she was sick, it did-
n't stop her from riding a
mule down the Grand.
Canyon or going up to Mesa
Verde to see the cliff dwelling.
-After Mesa Verde, 'we headed
home through the Carson
National Forest and came out
where the high plains meet
the Rockies.
We drove 4,800 miles and
the best thing about the trip
was the friendly helpful peo-
ple we met. On the way home

in Lubbock and ended up in
Crosbyton, Texas at mid-
night. We were worn out
when we noticed a police
truck parked behind us at
the door of a restaurant that
was being cleaned. I asked if
he knew where we could
spend the night, and he
grinned and told us he sure
could. The Chamber of
Commerce had a free camp-

across from the Fina. Free
electricity and free water. he
later came down to check on
us and to give us the Sheriffs

of small towns, and didn't

Tigers host LCHS in Kickoff Classic


The 2007 Blountstown
Tigers will have their first
opportunity to face an oppo-
nent under the lights when
they host the Liberty County
Bulldogs in a kickoff classic
at Bowles Field Friday night
at 7:00 p.m.
The Tigers have had to
endure temperatures near
100 degrees in preparation'
for the upcoming season. "It
has really been tough, but
the kids have handled it pret-
ty well. Some of the big boys
can lose as much as ten
pounds in a day, but they
rehydrate and gain it back by
the next day", Head Coach
Greg Jordan said Monday.
"We take plenty of water
breaks and players have
water bottles with them on
the field. We don't want to
take any chances in this
heat."
The Tigers will open their
regular season next Friday
night at home against
Marianna and will hope to
extend their 33 straight regu-
lar season victories streak. A
change in the district layout
has resulted in Blountstown
only able to schedule nine
regular season games this
year. District 2-2B this year
consists of Bozeman,

Soccer league

needs coaches

and volunteers
Soccer season is nearly
here! Please consider becom-
ing a COACH, or VOLUN-
TEER with the Calhoun
County Youth Soccer League.
It's fun and rewarding. -No
experience required, we need
your help!
Please call Judy Ludlow
(674-2360) for more informa-
tion.


We have been through 2-a-
day practices in 100� plus
temperatures, hitting each
other for 15 or so practices.
Now the time has come to hit
a different color jersey and
you can feel the anticipation
rising. This year we. open up
at home on August 24th (this
Friday) -vs- Liberty County at
home starting at 7:00 p.m.
CDT. Please take. note, all
our home games this year
will start at 7:00 instead of
7:30, so get their early to get
your seats.
The reserved tickets are
still on sale in the front office
for $20 each for 4 home reg-
ular season games.
Now back to football, this
week vs Liberty County will
be a tough early season test
for the Tigers. We return the
majority of our skill players
on offense from last year.
The unknown going in is how
the offensive live will come
together early with four new
starters. The only returning
starter is Britt Leach, who
played center last year and
this year has moved to tack-
le.
Defensively, - we return
only four starters from last
year. We have a lot of new
names and new faces starting
in 2007. But that's part of
what makes coaching high
school football fun....the
unknown!
I anticipate a huge crowd
for this opening of the 2007
season. Our goals are, as
always, championship.
,District, regional and state
champs. This will be the first
step along the way. Come
join the ride! BHS football in
2007. GO TIGERS!!!!


North Fla. Christian and
Leon, teams the Tigers have
beaten two consecutive
years, also dropped the
Tigers from their schedules.
Wakulla, a strong team in
AAA, is a new addition to our
schedule this year.
"Our biggest unknown this
year will be our offensive line
with only one returning
starter and four new
starters," Jordan stated.
Senior Britt Leach, who
played center last year, will
start at right tackle. Junior
Shane Bailey will be at center
with juniors David' Mayo and


Jeremy Watson at guards.
Sophomore Jason Money will
be at left tackle.
"We'll average about 200
pounds on the offensive line,
but these kids are agile, ath-
letic, they're in shape and I'm
eager to -see what they can
do," Jordan pointed out.
The defense will also have
seven new starters this year
but has some strong experi-
ence returning as well.
Anchored by Ryan Baker at
linebacker, David Mayo and
Ron VanLierop will be at
defensive end, Jared-Lilly and
John Lockhart return to the


secondary. Shane Bailey,
Britt Leach, Blake Shelton
and Jason Money will be at
tackle. Joining Baker at line-
backer will be Demarco
Johnson, Jeremy Watson and
Darrin Huff. Malcolm Ivory
and Chase Johnson will start
at safety with Heath Bailey
also seeing action.Senior
quarterback Cory Cox who
passed for 1500 yard, 20
TD's and 3 interceptions last
year will return to lead the
Tiger offense. Ryan Baker
who rushed for 900 yards
and 15 TD's last year will
return at fullback. Junior
Malcolm Ivory will return as
the starting tailback. Junior
Demarco Johnson will also


see action at fullback. Senior
Matt Vincent will start at
tight end. Senior John
Lockhart, who has just com-
mitted to play college ball at
Georgia Tech, will start at
receiver. Blake Shelton will
also see action at tight end.
Junior Jared King will handle
the PAT's and field .goals
again this year and Jared
Lilly will do the punting.
"Coming into Friday night
we'll be watching our offen-
sive line to see how they'll
react. They're the key to our
success this season," Jordan
pointed out.
It should be another excit-
ing season of Tiger football.

Future Tigers attend camp


Bowles Field was the
setting for the Future Tiger
Football Camp held
Saturday morning. It was
a scorcher outside, but
youngsters between sec-
ond and fifth grades didn't
seem to mind the heat one
bit. They had a blast on
the field, learning new
plays and techniques from
the big boys on the varsity
team and their coaches.
Best of all, the camp was
completely free of charge.
Above, the future Tigers
pose at the end of a long
, morning workout. At left,
Will McClellan fights for
yardage as Chasen
Roulhac and a host of his
young Tiger teammates get

way.

Futch talks education


issues with Governor
Blountstown Middle School teacher Michele Futch was
among 15 teachers from- across the state who met with
Governor Charlie Crist recently to let him hear firsthand the
issues educators are facing in the classroom. The gathering
was one of Gov. Crisfs "Tallahassee Tuesday" sessions he
holds regularly with regular citizens in the Governor's Mansion.
One of the concerns was the fact that students with learning
disabilities are expected to achieve the same high standards as:
those without. "You can work with them and try and try and do
everything you can and everything they can, but they're never
going to be able to read at grade level," Futch, a special edu-
cation teacher at BMS, told Gov. Crist. "It's heartbreaking."
The governor responded, "I want to adjust whatever it is
we're doing to help you help those kids." He emphasized that,
although he does want to maintain high standards, "You have
to sort of hit the sweet spot where it's not so high it's out of
range and it creates defeatism."
Futch is pictured above (far right) and at left with Gov. Crist.

back to school

safety reminder
The Florida Highway
Patrol reminds the motoring
public that area schools are
back in session. Motorists
should watch for children
that are walking or waiting
for their buses and use care
when approaching children.
Motorist should also watch
for stopped school buses that
are loading or unloading chil-
dren in the mornings and
afternoons.
When a school bus dis-
plays a stop signal to load or
unload children, Florida Law
requires all drivers' going in
the same direction to stop.
The traffic moving in the
opposite direction must also
stop, unless the highway is
divided with an unpaved
space of at least (5) feet, a
raised median or a physical
barrier. It is a moving viola-
tion to fail to stop for a school
'bus.
Motorists need to use
caution when approaching
posted school .speed zones.
Motorist must reduce their
speed during the times that
children are arriving and
departing school. Failure to
adhere to the posted school
speed zone is a moving viola-
tion. The speeding fines are
doubled in a posted school
zone.
The Florida Highway
Patrol encourages the motor-
ing public to drive responsi-
bly. Report aggressive and
impaired driving by safely
dialing *FHP on your cellular
phone. Watch out for the
children and let's help them
have a safe school year.

Concerned about retiring?


Tips offered to help prepare


BY PAUL BARNES
Social Security Regional
Commissioner

Do you sometimes wonder
whether you'll be able to
afford retirement? 'It's a
common. concern among
workers, especially members
of the baby-boom generation.
The oldest of the boomers will
be 62 in just a few months -
in January' 2008. But even
the most anxious of this
group should be able to
relieve at least some con-
cerns about 'retirement
income by understanding
just how much money is
needed, and then planning a
way to reach that goal.
Most financial. advisors
say that you will need at least
70 to 80 percent of your pre-
retirement income to enjoy a
comfortable retirement.
Other- advisors say that you
may need an even higher per-


centage of pre-retirement
income. So where will it
come from?
The truth is that today
Social Security is the largest
source of income for most
older Americans. For the
average wage-earner, Social
Security will replace about 40
percent of pre-retirement
earnings. But Social
Security was never intended
to be your only source of
income when you retire, and
to reach the 70-80 percent
replacement income goal you
also will need other savings,
investments or pension
income, or part-time work.
As Michael J. Astrue,
Commissioner of Social
Security, has noted, "Saving
and investing wisely are
important not only for you
and your family, but for the
entire country. If you want to
learn more about how and
why to save, you should visit


Family tree


record appears. For example,
when a name is searched in
the census collection, the
particular page where this
name is listed will be dis-
played on the screen. Patrons
can use the information that
they find as "clues" that will
assist in searching their fam-
ily history - places where they
lived, names of relatives,
birth or death dates, etc.
Names can be added to form
the "tree" or searched to find
more clues.
"Genealogy is a wonderful
hobby for anyone who wants
to know more about where
they came from," says Ms.
Maupin, "and HeritageQuest
Online is simple enough for


beginners, yet it provides
deep and broad content sets
that will help veteran geneal-
ogists advance their
research."
The Calhoun County
Public Library is offering a
class on Heritage Quest as
well as other genealogy sites
on the web. Classes are
scheduled for Sept. 5, from
10:00-11:30 AM, as well as
Sept. 6 from 10:00-11:30 AM
and 5:30-7:00 PM. To partic-
ipate: you will need a current
Calhoun County library card.
For more information and
to sign up,' call 850-674-
8773, ext 35, and speak to
Jane Breeze.


www.mymoney.gov, a federal
government website dedicat-
ed to teaching all Americans
the basics of financial man-
agement."
The topics discussed at
this website include paying
for an education, starting a
small business and, of
course, retirement planning.
The retirement planning
link takes you to more than a
dozen other links with valu-
able financial information.
There' is, for example, "A
Special Guide for Seniors and
Families" from the FDIC;
"Top 10 Ways To Prepare For
Retirement" from the
Department of Labor; . 'Tax
Information for Retirement
Plan Participants" from the
IRS; and several links to
Social Security sites, includ-
ing Social Security retirement
benefit calculators, special
guides for women and retire-
ment planners.
So if you are concerned
about being able to afford
retirement, just remember
that knowledge is power. Get
valuable information from
Social Security at

financial literacy at

Local man among Harveys



six district contest winners


Harveys Supermarkets
gave away a new 2007 Ford
F-150 truck on Saturday,
August 4, at Wild Adventures
Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga.
Among those vying for the
prize was Blountstown's Skip
Sanborn who was one of six
district winners.
Each district winner was
given a key to start the truck.
The winning key cranked the
vehicle and it belonged to,
Barbara Harper of Ocilla, GA.
Although he didn't win the
big prize, Harveys spokesper-
son Lisa Smith says Sanborn


certainly represented
Blountstown well and was a
crowd favorite with his outgo-
ing personality.
Harveys Supermarkets
and its partners, Pepsi, Frito-
Lay, Langdale Ford and 99.5
KIX Country teamed for the
"Come to Harveys" sweep-
stakes. For the sweepstakes,
47 store winners were cho-
sen. Six district winners were
then chosen as district win-
ners and eligible to win the
truck.
. Each district winner
received four tickets to Wild


Adventures and a $400
Harveys shopping card. Each
of the 47 store winners


received a $100 Harveys
shopping card and two tick-
ets to Wild Adventures.

.Remember
We were
thumbing
through a book
of children's
prayers the
other day. It
contained the
Tim Adams usual beautiful
Funeral Director little prayers for
children, and they were all well
done-striking illustrations, and in
general good taste throughout the
book.
There was one prayer in this
book, however, that was
outstanding! It was illustrated with
the picture of a little boy lying on
the grass with his puppy dog
beside him. The puppy had one of
his forepaws bandaged, and here
is the prayer:
"My pet does not feel well
today, God. He doesn't want to
play with me. Please help me to
take care of him..."

that the true prayer that all people.
should pray? "Help me to care..."

rule the world. During those
wars millions of humans
realizing the importance of
freedom, paid the price with
their own lives.
But there is an ultimate
freedom that can be obtained
through only one life, that of
Jesus Christ. The blood He
shed on Calvary's Cross
brought a freedom we can
never buy or earn. If we
accept Christ's gift of full sal-

never be taken from us -
"Now the Lord is the Spirit,

der yourself to Christ for eter-

Track Statistics & History
Turns / Straights: 360 /160
Distance: 0.533 miles
Shape: Oval
Last Year's Winner: Matt Kenseth
In the fall of 1969, Bristol Motor
Speedway was reshaped and re-mea-
sured. The turns were banked at 36
degrees and it became a 0.533-mile oval,
or the "World's Fastest Half Mile".
Improvements continued, bringing its cur-
rent seating capacity to 160,000. The
concrete racing surface is 40 feet wide with straight-
aways 650 feet long. "Racin' the way it ought'a be" is the
slogan that this raceway uses because it is the shortest
track with the highest banking which makes for exciting
racing. In a series of national polls, Bristol's August night
race ranked ahead of the Daytona 500 and Brickyard 400
in Indianapolis as the overwhelming fan favorite.

Sponsor: DeWalt Power Tools
Crew Chief; Robble Reiser
Car: Ford
Biography:
Matt Kenseth made his Winston Cup series
debut in 1998 at Dover, Del., filling in for the
injured Bill Elliott. He finished sixth (the last
driver before Matt to debut with a top-10 fin-
ish was Rusty Wallace). In 2000 Kenseth's
entire team joined the Roush Racing organi-
zation, where they won the Raybestos
Rookie of the Year. He won the Coca-Cola
600.at Charlotte, and finished 14th in points.
Kenseth won the most races (5) and one
pole in 2002, but inconsistency caused him
to finish eighth in the final points. In 2003 he
dominated in the points standings for almost
the entire season and became the 2003
NASCAR Winston Cup champion, (he last
driver to ever hold that title. Kenseth started
the 2005 season with relatively poor finishes
but finished seventh in the final points stand-
ings. Last year, Kenseth won four Nextel
Cup races and finished 2nd in the Chase for
the Nextel Cup to Jimmie Johnson.


Ricky Rudd said he plans to retire from the NASCAR . �
Nextel Cup series after this season. The 50-year-old V r
Rudd, in his 28th season as a full-time driver in the
Cup series, told the Virginian Pilot that he has
informed car owner Robert Yates of his decision to
step out of the No. 88 car. "It's time for me to step
back from the active schedule," Rudd told the newspaper Saturday at
Michigan Speedway. Rudd has started 897 races in his career. Only The
King, Richard Petty, has more career starts.

race instead. Denny Hamlin won the Carfax 250 on Saturday.
He drove the No. 20 Rockwell Automation Chevrolet for Joe
Gibbs Racing and had a margin of victory of 6.998 seconds,
the widest difference in track history. it was the fourth win for
him.in the Busch Seres in 66 career races and his tenth top-
10 finish in 14 Busch Series races this season. After the win
Denny said, 'We had a really good car. Even in practice we felt
that we had a car that could contend for a win." Kenseth held
on for second and Kevin Harvick finished a strong third. Cad
Edwards had another frustrating day The next Busch race will
be at Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday, August 24.

time they were taken. He
notified a representative of
the Liberty County Senior
Citizens office and they con-
tacted Bristol Pharmacy to
alert them to the theft and
the possibility, the culprit
would attempt to refill the
prescription.
Just before noon
Saturday, the pharmacy
received a call from someone
requesting a refill on the vic-
tim's *pills. The pharmacist
alerted the Sheriffs Office
and Lt. Dussia Shuler set up
surveillance' outside the'
pharmacy. Around 1 p.m.,
Kasper entered the drug-
store, told the pharmacist
she was there to pick up a
prescription for the victim,
provided an unknown signa-
ture on the medication log,
and paid for the Valium. As
she left the store, she was
apprehended by Lt. Shuler.
A search of Kasper's purse
revealed the original pre-
scription bottle stolen from
the victim's home. During
questioning by Lt. Shuler and
Deputy Carol Marotta,
Kasper allegedly admitted to
stealing the victim's medica-
tion and requesting the refill
of the prescription. She fur-
ther confessed to breaking
into another residence in the
same mobile home park
around 12:30 a.m. on Aug.
15. She reportedly stated she
was unsure what she wanted
to steal, but said the man
residing in the home heard
her as she broke in and
grabbed her arm, but she
pulled away and fled toward
Hwy. 20, returning to her
home about 100 yards away.
Because it was dark and he
couldn't see her face, the
man was unable to identify
Kasper.
According to Kasper, she
has a drug problem stem-
ming from an accident sever-
al years ago.

Letters to the Editor cont'd


right as a substantially
affected person to request an
administrative hearing by
submitting a written request
to the same address. Others
of you may want to do the
same.
Sincerely,
Robert, L. (Bob) Mayo
Clarksville
Letter to the Editor:
Regarding the numerous
road closure proposals in the
Apalachicola National Forest
Let me preface my
remarks by saying that I have
enjoyed the pleasure of the
Apalachicola National Forest
and the friendship of most of
its employees for 25 years.
There is but one thought that
you should keep in mind
while addressing this issue.
That is who will be most
affected by these road clo-
sures? It is not the Forest
Service, it is we the people
who mainly use the forest
being the hunters, baiters,
and timber people who pay
their way. You can go for
days in the forest and not see
flower kissers, tree huggers
and animalphile freaks who
don't pay anything. If you
believe different, break down
on one of the back roads and
see how long you have to wait
for someone to come by and
help you. Some of the traits
common to the environmen-
tally related bureaucracies
are that they are all radical:
given to exaggeration to
impress and lies to convince.
They are dictatorial and con-
sumed with self interest.
Look at the acid rain bunch.
The U.S. provides several mil-
lion dollars to determine if
there was actually any such
thing as acid rain. Can you
imagine anything more
frightening than acid raining
down on your head? They
put out this BS (exaggeration)
to get peoples attention.
They got it. Both Harvard
and Yale were involved. They
found no such thing as acid
rain ,but when they advised
the CEO of the coalition to
fight acid rain that there was
no such thing and asked him
what was he going to do now
he replied, continue to fight
acid rain. So you see arguing
with this kind of outfit is like
getting into a water-squirting


contest with a polecat. Even
if you win you don't win.
From 1981 to 2002 my son
John and I spent more time
seeing after our cows in the
forest than any forest service
employee spent there. The
great wrong I saw regarding
the roads in mention was
that the forest service did not
move the, first shovel full of
dirt or cut the first root on
these deteriorating roads. We
drove through those bog
holes for 25 y ears. All of the
connecting roads have been
in existence for at least 100
years. When the forest serv-
ice rocked the low places in
the graded roads, instead of
lowering themselves to ask
someone who traveled these
roads as to where the rocking
was needed by brought in the
professionals who fixed
someplaces that didn't need
fixing and left some places
unfixed that needed fixing.
they dug a hole in forest road
100 at least 50 foot across
where they were nothing
wrong. Some hunters call
that screw-up a carwash over
the swimming pool. The so-
called engineer that dug that
hole in forest road 100
should be awarded the dumb
ass of the decade award.
Now lets look at the
biggest farce of all, the global
warming craze. How in the
hell did the earths' climate
change from an ice age to a
temperate zone without glob-
al warming? At the time man
had not polluted the atmos-
phere so something else must
have caused it. It is still
around just in a much less
degree. The main thing that
is polluted is the minds of
such screwballs as Al Gore
and his followers. They are
driven by fear not scientific
information. They get their
information from activists,
professors and politicians not
honest scientists. Evidently
there is an unwritten rule in
bureaucracies that scientist
find what the powers that be
want or find themselves
another job. My experience is
such that I wouldn't trust a
bureaucratic scientist in an
outhouse with a muzzle on.
The only thing more dan-
gerous to peoples' rights than
the Congress and State
Legislature is a state or feder-


al agency with rule making
authority. They don't prac-
tice the rules or procedures
that insure due process such
as notification time, hear the
opposition comment, and
ample time to consider ques-
tions. Plus they stack the
deck of those who are
involved in the discussion,
ignoring conflict of interest.
No one has a greater love
and appreciation that I do for
the Apalachicola National
Forest. I have lived sur-
rounded by it in Wilma for 25
years and expect to spend the
rest of my life there. I just
don't have any faith that any-
thing practical will come out
of Washington that will
improve the present situa-
tion. This is the same thing
that Clinton tried to push
over on the Forest Service
years ago. Thank God
Clinton is now gone but his
fellow travelers are in power
and I don't want any part of
anything they have to offer.
Your proposition is' not prac-
tical and cannot be enforced.
You can't even enforce the
don't litter rule in the Forest.
I most assuredly appreciate
the fact that merchantable
timber can be seen from any
sight in the forest. Growing
timber is what the Forest
Service is good at not manag-
ing people.
Incidentally the fish
baiters, one of the most
deserving groups in the for-
est, who pay their way-will be
completely screwed if your
plan goes into effect. Keep in
mind these roads have been
in use much longer than the
forest has been here and if
they hadn't been needed and
used they wouldn't exist.
Incidentally not the first
meteorologist supports the
global warming theory., The
global warmers claim the
oceans are four inches keep-
er than they were 100 years
ago, caused by ice cap melt-
ing. I have been around long
enough to realize that there
are weather cycles that could
cause more variation than
that.
As to dishonest scientists,
the state of Washington, the
US Forest Service and the US
Fish and Wildlife Service fal-
sified where they found lynx


hairs. This dishonesty was
exposed and their dishonest
claims of those findings did
not affect the public lands in
15 states as was intended.
This same article in the State
of Washington Post stated
that the people had long
known that the US Forest
Service was not scientifically
ethical.
Remember the souls of all
men are the same, what
causes quarrels between
paupers causes wars
between Princes. That is, you
may find a ditch digger that's
honest and honorable, a
paragon of virtue and a PHD
who is as untrustworthy as
an egg sucking dog. I ascribe
to the scientific theory that
all of the forces that ever
affected earth are still affect-
ing it at the' same approxi-
mate rate.
I have noticed through the
years when our way of life
values and customs are criti-
cized or changed by the
bureaucracies there was no
protest from the public. The
press dubbed the people the
silent majority because they
didn't defend their interests I
dubbed them the dumb ass
majority and vowed that I
would forever defend the
interest of me and my kind.
Without the majority of the
peoples influence on con-
gress and the legislature
there's no way majority rule
can prevail with our method
of government because of the
following, our politicians in
seeking the block vote of the
minorities have passed laws
empowering the minorities to
the point they have intimidat-
ed the majority, causing the
majority not to speak out
except in desperate circum-
stances such as the recent
amnesty congaing immigra-
tion proposal: 'The left wing
press champions the minori-
ty, and does not reflect the
majority's opinion. Also ordi-
nary people which make up
most' ofthe' majority ha'e ino
lobbyists or pollsters repre-
senting them. Thus, con-
gress and legislature's., are
mislead as to the majority
opinion and the minorities
are running the country.
This must change or we face
ruin.


If you think these purport-
ed road closures will be the
end you are wrong. It is just
the beginning of the end as
there are some environmen-
tal extremists who imagine
the only real solution to our
environmental problem is to
replenish the worlds supply
of endangered plants and
animals and remove us from
the scene. My difference with
them is who gets removed.
You, the users of the National
Forest roads, can resist and
possibly wind up being treat-
ed fairly, or you can submit
and without a doubt be
screwed.
The US lost 50 million buf-

(C - -.----


falo in 10 years. Yet our envi-
ronment didn't go into a tall
spin. That tells me that the
loss of so called finger sized
salamanders won't amount to
amount to a rats pattootie.
What-seems to be par for
the course in bureaucratic
rule, making is those most
effected by the rules have less
or "say so".
