ARREST


Loan Co.


burglar


caught in


Live Oak
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A man recently released
from the Calhoun
Correctional Work Camp is
now facing a list of new
charges after allegedly bur-
glarizing a Blountstown
business,
damaging
the store's
building,
and fleeing
in a stolen
ST.JV
Daniel-
Jay Brost,
39, of Live
Oak, who
o n ce
resided in DANIEL BROST
Blounts-
town, was
apprehended at his
Suwanee County home last
Wednesday.
According to the
Blountstowni Police
Department, the investiga-
tion began just before 6
a.m. when the manager of
Classic Cleaners in the
Harveys Shopping Center
arrived artwork and noticed
the neighboring businesses
appeared to have been bur-
glarized. Officer Patrick
Crawford responded .and
discovered a vehicle had
been used to ram the back
doors of Pollywogs and
Bullfrogs children's store,
as well as Champion Loan
Services.,
Major Rodney Smith
arrived, oo the scene and
determined the same vehi-
cle had busted the wall of
both businesses, leaving
behind blue paint chip evi-
dence. A distinctive shoe
print was also discovered.
Nothing appeared to be
missing from the children's
store, but the loan company
manager found only oned
drawer disturbed:, the one
that held the key to the
safe. The store money was
kept in two bank bags and
both were missing from the
safe. Due to the fact that
the burglar appeared to
know exactly where the key
and money were kept,
investigators believed the
person had inside knowl-
edge. The manager advised
that an employee's ex-
boyfriend, identified as
Brost, had just been
released from prison and
was living in Live Oak.'

To the Editor:
OATH KEEPERS
Military Veterans, Peace
Officers and Elected
Officials,
Your oath was to support
and defend the
Constitution, not to the
President or Congress, and
that oath must be kept. We
can not and should not just
follow orders blindly.
The Declaration of
Independence, and the Bill
of Rights as established:
1. We will NOT obey
any' order to disarm the
American people.' We
affirm that the purpose of
the Second Amendment is
to preserve .the military
power of the people so that
they will,, in the last resort,
have effective final recourse
to arms.
2. We will NOT obey
any order to corlduct war-
rant less searches of the
American people, their
homes, vehicles, papers, or
effects such as warrant
less house-to house'search-.
es for weapons or persons.
The Fourth Amendment
was so written.
3. We will NOT obey
any order to detain
American citizens as unlaw-
ful enemy combatants or to
subject them to trial by mil-
itarytribunal. The interna-
tional laws of war do not
trump our Bill of Rights.
4. We will. NOT obey
orders' to. impose martial
law or a state of emergency
on, a state, or to enter with
force into a state, without
the express consen and
invitation of that states leg-
islature and governor. Such
an attempted suspension of
the Constitution, and Bill of
Rights voids the compact
with the states and with the
people.
5. We will NOT obey
orders to invade and subju-
gate any state: that asserts
its sovereignty and declares
the' national government to
be in violation of the com-
pact by which that state
entered the Union. In
response "the obscene
growth of federal power and
to the absurdly totalitarian
claimed powers of the
Executive.
W6.We will NOT obey'
any order to, blockade


American cities, thus turn-
ing them into giant concen-
tration camps. Such tactics
were repeated by the Nazis
in the Warsaw Ghetto, and
by the Imperial Japanese in
Nan King, turning entire
cities into death camps.
7. We will NOT obey
any order to, force
American citizens into any
form of detention camps
under any pretext. Mass,
forced internment into con-
centration camps was a
hallmark of every fascist
and communist dictatorship
in the 20th Century.
8. We will NOT obey
orders to assist or support
the use of any foreign
troops on U.S. soil against
the American people to
"keep the peace" or to
"maintain control" during
any emergency, or under
any other pretext. We will
oppose such troops as ene-
mies of the people, and we
will treat all who request,
invite, and aid those foreign
troops as the .traitors they.
are.
9. We will NOT obey
any orders to confiscate th-e
property of the American
people, including food and
other essential supplies,
under any emergency pre-
text whatsoeverr,
Deprivation of food has long
been a weapon of. war and
oppression, with millions
intentionally starved to
death by fascist and com-
munist governments in the
20th Century alone.
10. We will NOT obey
any orders which infringe'
on the right of the people to
free speech, to peaceably
assemble, and to petition
their' government for a
redress of- grievances.
Tyrants know that the pen
of a man can cause, them
more damage' than entire
armies. Therefore, we will.
not obey or support any
.orders to suppress or vio-
late the right of the people
to Speak, associate, assem-
ble, communicate, or peti-
tion government for the
'redress of grievances.

Sidney Edenfield: Reaching Easter egg
hunt Apr. 11

her students, one at a timeI A.
in Bristol


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

Ask. Sidney Edenfield
'what her. passion in. life is
and she will surely tell you,
"My kids."
When she says that,
she's talking about a boun-
ty'of, children all the
youngsters, ,that pass
through the doors of the
Calhoiun .County CARE
program.r As a paraprofes-
sional at CARE. Edenfield
works with students from
all across the school district
who 'are at-risk of dropping
out or have had disciplinary
problems. Some may be
there for months, others
just a few days serving in-
school suspension. Last
month, Edenfield .:was


named the Countywide
School Related Employee
of 'the Year in honor of all
she does to help her stu-
dents be successful.
"She provides assistance
to the teachers in that she
does clerical things such as
making copies,, reads with
students,' counsels them,
when they need someone to
talk to," says. Robin
Richards, Curriculum
Coordinator/General
Support for CARE. "She
.even picks up breakfast
and lunch and serves the
meals. She also helps with
their' academics if they
need extra help."
But it's the way she does
her job ,that makes
Edenfield extra special.
"She can watch a student,


she can sit down with them
and talk one on one," says
Richards. "She tells them
exactly what they need to
hear, but she tells them in a
loving way where they
know she cares. 'She's like a
mother figure to them.
She's a mother figure to all
of.us."
Edenfield is so loved by
the students that one asked
her to be a part of the birth
of her child. "We had a stu-
dent here that was preg-
nant and she told Mrs.
Edenfield she was pregnant
before she told her own
parents,", says Richards,
noting that she has earned
the students' trust. "When
it came time for delivery,

encourage continuation and
improvement of arts pro-


grams and activities in the

CRAA awards Chipola

ented students in Calhoun,.
Holmes, Jackson, Liberty
and Washington Counties.
'The group also supports the
Chipola Artist Series and
underwrites special cultural
programs for area school
children. Funding for these
many projects comes from
public fund-raising efforts
in the five-county district. ,
CRAA officers will begin
the annual fund-raising
campaign in February and
sincerely hope that local
businesses and individuals
will include CRAA in their
charitable contribution


plans. For information, call
850-718-2277.

According to The Nation
'and the Arts, a Presidential
briefing prepared by the
Independent Committee on
Arts Policy, "Well-devel-
oped .programs of making
and studying art help 'stu-
dents better articulate their
perceptions and shape
coherent responses to their
experiences. When chil-
dren learn to appreciate
form and color and when
they learn the importance
of fashioning their own
images of the world around
them, they achieve greater
discipline and self confi-
dence."

A Women's Pregnancy
Center of Marianna is fea-
turing Pam Tebow as the
keynote speaker at their
Celebration of Life Benefit
Banquet set for Thursday,
April 16, at 6:30 p.m. at
the Chipola College Arts
Center. This event is spon-
sored by Baptist Collegiate,
Ministry.
Pam, whose son, Tim
Tebow, is the 2007
Heisman Trophy winner, is
uniquely qualified to speak
on behalf of a ministry.that
serves women in troubled
pregnancies.
The mother of four chil-
dren, Pam was not a likely,
candidate for a difficult
pregnancy as she. and her
husband, Bob Tebow,
planned for yet another
child in 1986. Yet it was in
the unforeseen circum-
stances of a common
Philippine disease that
Pam experienced the great-
est threat to their hoped-for
child. An amoeba is a sim-
ple protozoa that looks like:
a grey blob under a micro-


scope. In a human's body,
however, it multiplies and
produces a severe illness,
severe enough that it caus-
es the death of 100,000
people annually. Before
Pam knew she was preg-
nant, she had contracted
amoeba and took the nec-
essary medicine to save her
life. Upon the discovery of
her pregnancy, however,
her doctor told them their
developing child would be
better off aborted because
of irreversible damage due
to the side-effects of the
strong antibiotic.
The Tebows refused to
accept this prognosis and
sought other help. No local
doctor would serve them in
their decision to have their
baby. They travelled out of
country to receive prenatal
care. On August 14, 1987,
Parh delivered their fifth
baby who, though slightly
under-weight at the time,
has mrde up substantially
as the now 6-foot, 3-inch,
240-pound left-hander who
faces. 300-pound defensive

linemen. This January
Tim Tebow led his team,
the Florida Gators, to their
second national champi-
onship in three years.
"Timmy, as his family still
calls him, also won the
2007 Heisman Trophy, the
first. ever awarded to an
underclassman.
The Tebows' deep faith
is the reason they made
such a decision for life
which .went against their
doctor's directive.. The


STebow family' served in the
Philippines, where Bob
was born, and he still leads
evangelistic crusades, min-
isters in orphanages and
supports a large team of
indigenous pastors. Such a
commitment reflects Bob
Tebow's parents' 20 years
of service as missionaries in
the Asian country. Now,
Bob's son, Tim, believes
missions could be his life
call, after his football
career.
In an ESPN interview
Bob Tebow expressed his
family's desire, "We were
not looking for a platform to
preach. While football was
the vehicle, our whole point
in life is to honor the Lord:"
Tim shares this convic-
tion with his dad, as he
strives to live out the mean-
ing of his -name, "honoring
God."
Tim's hero is Danny
Wuerffel, another
Christian, quarterback,

UF Extension agents give advice on

how best to deal with unwanted pets


BY MICKIE ANDERSON
University of Florida

For some, turning an
unwanted pet loose may
seem the only thing to do,
but University of Florida
extension agents are work-
ing to get out the message
that it can be dangerous for
the animal and disastrous
for the environment.,
With a slew of invasive
creatures -- everything
from monkeys to pythons --
wreaking havoc tihinl.ughout
Florida's terrestrial, fresh-
water and marine ecosys-


terns, three Institute of
Food and Agriculture
Sciences experts put their
heads together to find a
way to help put a dent in
the problem.
They decided to turn
their attention first to the
state's pet store owners and
workers, because nearly all
of those creatures causing
problems out in the wild
started off as someone's
pet.
Using small grants from
UF extension and the
Tampa Bay Estuary
Program, Flagler County


Sea Grant extension agent
Maia McGuire, Osceola
County natural resources
extension agent Eleanor
Foerste and Steve Johnson,
a Hillsborough County-
based assistant professor in
wildlife ecology, put togeth-
er a campaign aimed at
educating those who sell
pets and pet supplies,
because they often have
the most contact 'with
someone thinking about
buying such a pet.

Gator who also elected to
make a public profession of,
his faith and live according-
ly. Tim seeks to emulate his
hero and is deeply aware of
the circumstances of his
birth of which his mother
reminds him, "I guess it
was a little more dramatic
because we ,saw the miracle
of Timmy's birth and we
continually reminded him,
God has a special plan for
your life."
In his acceptance
speech for the most presti-
gious honor in college ath-
letics, Tim Tebow said, "I'd
just like to first start off by
thanking my Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ, who


brought in a double. Shayla
Chason had two singles and
two runs scored.
The next day, the Lady
Tigers traveled to Sneads
and the varsity girls were
defeated, 2-0. Brittany

Another factor: Today's
disposable world.
"We don't keep things,"
Foerste said.. "Our genera-
tion probably isn't creating
a lot of antiques."
Tips include:
Contacting a pet store
about what to do, or to see if
the store would be interest-
ed in taking the pet back.
Looking to hobbyist or
rescue groups to see if they
can help find the pet a new
home.
Donating the animal to
a local aquarium, zoo,
school or nature center.
Contacting a veterinar-
ian or pet store for advice
about humane disposal.

Hunt ,at the church in

event gets closer. Any


cherished that car because I
bought it with my own
money from a part-time job
I had:at the time. It was
really mine.
Ownership is tremen-
dously important to us. We
own houses, cars, antiques,
furniture, clothes, glass-
ware, etc. In a sense, par-
ents own their children.
Society peppers us with the
message that "prude of
ownership" is a worthwhile
goal.
'As Christians, we must
look at ownership different-
ly than those who do not'
live for Jesus Christ. When
we surrender our 'lives to6'
Christ, we relinquish into
His divine care ownership'
of ourselves and all we
have. We belong to Him,
He owns us.
What peace, what free-
dom we gain in turning.
everything over to Jesus!
As we live, we do so for
Him. And when our time
on earth, ends, He takes us
in His everlasting arms, .
carrying us from this' life to
an even better one.
I'm so glad I belong to
Jesus, are you?

A Thought

to oemember
., Death,
even though
S- it may scare
us-can offer
valuable
lessons about
Tim Adams how we can
FunerI s wr. -and should
live. The truth
'is that we will
all die, and .facing that truth
should make a difference in
how we live each day. While
we all lose sight of that from
*time to time, the passing of
a loved one can help us
pause and refocus in
positive ways.
How different our lives
would be if we maintained
proper relationships with'
other people and with God.
God's laws define proper
human relationships in
terms of love, considerations
ihoughtlulness. kindness,
honesty, morality, and
ethical integrity.
What comes to mind is the
age old question: "Since I
must die, how shall I live?" '

Going above and beyond
the normal call of duty is
typical for Edeffield. One
student had vision problems
and she- made .sure that
child ended up with some
glasses. Just one of many
examples proving she truly
loves her students.
"She is 'a very caring and
child centered person," says
Mike Johnson who serves as
ISS Director at CARE.
"She loves kids and she has
the ability to let them know
that. When she is around
them, they know she cares.
That's her greatest asset."

Calhoun County's history is being told through a heritage book currently being put together with
plans for publication in the summer of 2009. Here is one of the stories that will be included.


Rubylea Hall,
author of "The Great'
Tide" grew up in the
little city of
Blountstown, located in
Calhoun County,
Floridian the late
1900's and early
1920's. Her maiden
name was Rubylea
Ray. She attended
Calhoun County High
School and graduated
about the year 1927.
Rubylea's father was a
traveling salesman and
she had a younger sis-
ter named Bonnie.
My family, the John
Hentz Family, lived
across the Apalachicola
River in Liberty
County, south of the lit-
tle town of Bristol. At
that time we did not
have a four-year ,high
school 'in Liberty
County, so' my 'oldest
sister went to high
school in Blountstown.
They Were friends, she
and Rubylea Ray. She
would come over dur-
ing the summer when
school was out and
spend a while with us
on the farm.
Beautiful Lake
Mystic was our "swim-
ming hole". It was only
about one-half mile,
west of our home.
Rubylea was about two


RUBYLEA HALL

AUTHOR OF

"THE GREAT TIDE"

years older than I was
at the time. On one of
her visits' over to the
'farm she was telling me
about a severe' cut by a
piece of glass high upon
her hip that she got
when she was a child.
She said that if we went
swimming in 'the lake
that afternoon she
would show me the scar
on her hip. Something
happened and we did
not get to go swimming
so I didn't get to see the
scar. Somehow I forgot
about it. Years later
when Rubylea became
famous for writing
"The Great Tide", 'I
remembered that she
had promised to show
me the scar on her hip
and never did.
Rubylea's first hus-
band was D. Clifton
Palmer. He was the
Calhoun County high


school football coach.
After they married,
Rubylea and. her hus-
band would go over to
the farm in Liberty
County /and spend a
while with. us during
the summer. Years
later, Rubylea and D.
Clifton Palmer separat-
ed and then divorced.
Later, she. married a
man named Hall.
Rubylea Hall is the
name she used when
she wrote. "The Great.
Tide".
When Rubylea was
a girl growing up she
had the .most vivid
imagination of anybody.
She could imagine
things so vividly until
they deemed, real to
her. The other kids in
school made fun of her.
Her imagination came
into practical use when
she wrote the novel,


"The Great Tide". It is
. apparently based on a
Gulf Port boom-town,
of plantation life on
Florida's West Coast in
the 1830's and 1840's.
In earlier years, it was
known as St. Joseph,
which was located in
the southern part of
Calhoun County and
was destroyed at one
time by a severe tidal
wave.

In this Rubylea uses
such vivid detail until a
person reading it can
imagine the exact
details, of the event
being described. "The
Great Tide" is a mas-
terpiece of fiction and
nobody' could have
written, it 'without an
unusual imagination.
It is a large book
containing 535 pages
and covering a. long
span of time. Rubylea
passed away a good
many years ago. Her
younger sister, Bonnie,
drowned in the Chipola
River shortly after she
was married, still a
very young person.
My greatest "claim
to fame" was I knew
Rubylea Ray, but
missed the chance to
see the scar on a
famous lady's hip.
