Real estate developer considers legal


action against County CommiSSIon
BY KELLI PEACOCK

It's a sordid tale of a developer, a subdivision,
and a big fat misunderstanding.
SWhen Bill "Bud Terry" set out to build a
new neighborhood in late spring, he began wind-
ing through the maze of red tape required before
constructing anything in Florida. After spending
$2000 for the right to apply to build a subdivi-
sion in Calhoun County, he met with the local,
planning board, comprised of county commis-
sioners, and received their stamp of approval.
Only two items were pending: a permit from the
Northwest Florida Water Management District
and another from the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection. Terry agreed to get
the permits and was told not to start work on the .

An investigation
into a stabbing case in
Bristol back in the
spring has left Liberty
County authorities
with few answers.
Misty Holcomb, 33,
told investigators she
was stabbed by a man
dressed in black after
returning from taking
her children to school
the morning of April
17. She received
stitches above her right
eye and had 5-1/2"
cuts on her right fore-
arm and right leg. She
also had 3" cuts on her
left forearm and left
leg, all requiring
numerous stitches.
Evidence was sent


to the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement's Crime
Lab, but Inv. Steve
Swier tells The County
Record he can't com-
ment on what those
findings were.
"We're continuing
the investigation, but
there's no real devel-
opments," he remarks.
"There's actually been
a lack of developments.
We do need the pub-
lic's help."
Inv. Swier urges
anyone with informa-

the case to call the

CAP & TRADE BILL


Boyd


responds


to recent


criticism
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Voters all across the pan-
handle have been up inr
arms over the past two
weeks about Congressman
Allen Boyd's support of the
American Clean Energy
and Security Act that
recently passed in Congress
and is awaiting action by
the Senate.
Recent reports that
homeowners would have to
do upgrades to their houses
tomake them energy effi-
cient before selling them
has been a huge concern by
many. The County Record
spoke with Congressman
Allen Boyd to get his side
of the story Monday and he
says the rumors about the
"Cap and Trade Bill"
requiring such measures
are completely untrue.
"There's nothing in the
bill that does anything like
that," he remarks. "I just
don't know where all of that
comes from."
Boyd says there are pro-
visions in the bill to provide
tax incentives for energy
efficient improvements, but
there are no requirements
to do so.
"What's the first myth?
Will I need an energy audit
to sell my home? No,"
Boyd stressed. "Will you
be required to have an
energy label? No."
As far as why he voted in.
favor of this controversial
bill, Boyd says, "If you like
the current energy policy
we have or lack thereof and
you think we ought to do
nothing, you and I can
agree to disagree," adding
that if you don't like $4.50
per gallon gas, "Let's have
a debate about how we cre-
ate a system that makes us
self sufficient of folks over-
seas who control the oil."
The County Record has
more questions for
Congressman Boyd on the
bill and we will address
those in next week's issue.
But he wants voters to
understand, "We're in the
beginning of a game the
third inning of a nine inning
game. We've got a long way
to go. I would encourage
people to make sure they
read the information and
understand it. Let's see if
we can get down the road."

Man wanted for trying


Elected officials engagingto murder wife crashes
Eletedofficials engaging


in a lotta. monkey business


The older I get, the clos-
er I come to getting a new
voter registration card. One
that reads "Libertarian."
When government starts
monkeying with private
enterprise, it's a little more
than disturbing. It's down--
right frightening.
I'm pretty sure when our
forefathers risked their lives
and signed the Declaration
of Independence, they
never intended for our gov-
ernment to look anything
like it does today. Two sto-
ries I covered this week
have me concerned about
not only what our govern-
ment has turned into on a
national level, but also
what's happening on the
local front.
Here in Calhoun
County, leaders could have
solved an issue with local
realtor and developer Bill
"Bud" TIrry by picking up
a phone, dialing his num-
ber, and asking him a cou-
ple simple questions.
Instead, they discussed his
business at an open public
meeting without even
telling him the matter
was on the agenda.
To add insult to injury,
an interview with
Commission Chairman Dan
'Wyrick on local radio sta-
tion WYBT/WPHK report-
edly made it sound as if
Terry was doing something
inappropriate. He learned'
of the issue with the county.
after receiving a dozen
phone calls from radio lis-
teners.
When Terry appeared
before the Commission last
Tuesday, armed with an
attorney and an explana-
tion to clear up the appar-
.ent misunderstanding, he
asked for a public apology.
Instead, he was nearly oust-
,ed from the meeting for
ialking too loud. ,
[ ,,


What's baffling to me is
why our leaders on all lev-
els often seem to make it
more difficult for people to
do business. The economy
is in such a distressed state
it would seem government
would be more business
friendly. I drove out to the
house under construction
that was discussed at the
County Commission meet-
ing. The builder and his
wife told me a Calhoun
County business was their
flooring vendor.. Another
local was chosen as a roofer
on the project. Bottom line:
They are providing work
when it's hard.to come by
and building a house that
will soon be on the tax rolls.
And they have the permits
to build that house. So
what's the county's beef?
In national government
news, many panhandle vot-
ers have, been outraged,
over Congressman Allen
Boyd's support of the
American Clean Energy
and Security Act. In this
week's issue, he clarified
several points of concern
and dispelled some of the
rumors circulating, but
many questions will still
need to be asked and
answered. We will try to get
to the bottom of those
issues in next week's edi-
tion.
But back to my point. I
truly doubt the way our
nation is run today is any-
thing like how our founding
fathers envisioned. We tax
anything and everything
that stands still. We make
mandates on top 'of more
mandates. And we spend
like there's no tomorrow.
I think what it boils
down to is this: many elect-
ed officials have forgotten
they are public servants.

To the Editor:
The comments about
Congressman Boyd
"betraying his constituen-

was suspect when it quoted
The Heritage Foundation

radicals, few of which
believe there is any such
thing as Global Warming.
Many in this group still
believe that the earth is
flat! Well, maybe not
"many", but you get the
point. They are a right-
wing conservative group
that is opposed to any and
all government. They still
do not believe that bank
regulation is a proper gov-
ernment function. Andrew
. Jackson fought this same
bunch 190 yrs ago. They
haven't changed 'much.
Well, let me move on, this is
not about THE
Neither THF, nor Mrs.

relief for Florida families by
extending the state sales
tax deduction through

designed to help reduce our
dependence upon foreign

really love, and also support

don't like. I expect the part
you really do not like is: HR

Never A Dull Moment *



by J.K. Newsome




Soulmates, heart attacks,




and hauling broken cars


Governor Mark Sanford/
of South Carolina said that
he loves his wife, wants to
save his marriage, but feels
that his Argentinean lover
is his "soul mate". This
knuckleheaded comment
prompted my wife to tell
me if I ever found another
"soul mate" she would be
happy to release my soul to
be with her.
Why can the stupidity of
another male, cause me to
get threatened? It reminds
me of a story I wrote in
2006, and what the actions
:of a "souse can/may affect
the other:
. On May 15, 2006, four
days shy of my 45th birth-
day, at around 7:10 in the
morning, I found myself
standing in the ER telling
the nice nurse that I
thought I was having a
heart attack. If you, ever
need quick action at the
ER that works, but as
reflection revealed, that
was not where this story
began. .
I take you back to 1981.
I was working for the local
Ford dealer and dating the
girl I would eventually
marry. (She claims I am
blaming her for this med-
ical problem, but I swear
that is.not the case.)
I had taken on the job of
running the wrecker on
nights and weekends for
the dealership to make
.some extra cash. (If you
ever want to meet some
characters and get in some
odd situations, take that job
on sometime). I got a call
one Sunday afternoon to go
and pick up a broken down
hearse. I talked Nancy into
going with me because it
would be fun. The hearse


had broken down en route
to a funeral, and had died
(no pun intended) about
200 yards-from the grave-
yard.
Turns out the pall bear-
ers -had to tote the casket
the rest of the way. The
hearse was pulled off the
road, on a curve, and at an
odd angle. I was not going
to be able to attach it to the
wrecker as it sat so, I need-
ed to winch it up on the
road, in,, order to rnake-it ;
right. Turns.o put, Nancy was
not interested in the least
in sitting in the hearse and
steering it on the road while
I winched it with the
wrecker. Go figure..
After much deliberation
(pleading) the best I got
'was her standing outside
the rolled down window
and turning the wheel for
mre. I think this day was
what started her fear of
being pulled. I promise this
will add up.
Jump to several years
later.
One of my Mom's-
friend's car left her strand-
ed about 10 miles from
home. She had gotten a
ride, home, but her car
needed to be repaired. I
took on the task of pulling it
home and seeing what I
could do to fix it. As bad
luck would have it, Nancy,
now my wife, would have to
assist me in doing so.
Let me .add two other
phobias of hers to the mix.
A fear of driving on bridges,
and of meeting large trucks
on the road.
I am not sure how, but I
talked her into helping me
get this woman's car home.
We went over all .the
ground rules. You just pull


me. I will do ALL the brak-
ing. If we take it slow and
easy, nothing can go wrong.
Trust me, sweetheart... etc.
Things went real well, a
.piece of cake, until...there's
always an "until".
A rather large group of
deer ran in front of us. I
saw them; I knew what was
going to happen. She pops
on brakes, then realized her
mistake' and puts on the
gas. As soon as the neck
breaking .-snap occurred,
after the strap got tight, she
put on brakes again, while
looking in the mirror, notic-
ing the wide eyed driver
she was pulling was about
to ram her, she hit the gas
'again,* when the neck
breaking snap again hap-
pened (think slow dying
bungee jump) we eventual-
ly did get stopped. The
deer were gone. We were
on the side of the road.
I calmly got out of the
car, walked to the now
down window and I calmly,
repeat, calmly, went over
the rules again of who does
all the stopping when one
.car is pulling another. I
promise, I was calm. We
took off again.
Now, I told you that, to
tell you this.
Everything is going well
again, then we started
going down the hill, in
Frink, that leads to a
BRIDGE. Around the
curve on the. other side
comes a DUMP truck. It is
going to meet us on the
aforementioned BRIDGE,
while I am being pulled by
NANCY. I did not even
panic. I knew, I swear I,
knew, we were going to die.
There is hot one thing I can
do. It is curtains. But, she
overcame all her phobias,
calmly drove without even
thinking about touching the
brakes, we passed the


dump truck on the bridge
.without even the hint of
trouble.
I was a proud and
somewhat relieved hus-
band.
What does that have to
do with the ER in 2006???
EVERYTHING. (But still
not her fault)
Sunday morning,. May
14, I am drinking coffee
and checking my e-mail.. I
get a very sharp pain
behind my right' shoulder
blade. Nothing seemed .to
help it. I also felt "odd". f
had Nancy rub my back
while 1. lay on the floor. It
did not help. Eventually, it
just stopped. And the rest
of the day was normal.
Monday morning at 3
am. I woke up from a night-
mare. My heart was
pounding very hard. In this
nightmare I was on the
exact same piece of road
that Nancy and I had been
towing that car some 20
odd years before. I was
walking in the rain. When I
got near the hill, a man in a
suit met me. He looked at
me and said, "Today is the
:day."
Spooky.
Then in my dream, I
was running down the same
hill in Frink, towards the
bridge. A car was coming'
down the other side and a
deer ran out in front of it as
it locked up its brakes and
lost control. I had nowhere
to go and this car is out of
control and going to run me
over.
This is when I awpke,
heart pounding. Now, did
the nightmare cause the-
heart pounding......or did
the heart thing cause the
nightmare?? The answer is
coming...
Check out next week's
edition for the rest of this
story.

Marine law enforcement


agenciespush life jackets


A' number of law
enforcement agencies in
our area are joining togeth-
er to encourage boaters to
wear their .life jackets' this
summer.
.The- group. is the Bay
County Marine Law
Enforc,:; nent Alliance arid
includes the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), Bay
County Sheriff's.' Office,
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection's
Florida Park Police, U.S.
Coast Guard, U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliary and
Panama City and Panama
City Beach.
The alliance also wants
snorkelers, divers and
boaters to remember to use
and obey the dive-flag rule.
FWC Capt. Ken
Parramore, .who heads the
group, said its members are
pushing the "Wear It
Florida" life jacket cam-,
paign to make boating the
safest recreational pursuit
possible. .To do that, he
said, .boaters on smaller
vessels ? those under 26
feet in length ? should.'
always put on a life jacket
. when their vessel is mov-


ing.
Florida law requires that
children under 6 wear a life
jacket when their vessel is
under way. *
"W e-know that, statisti-
cally speaking, not only in
Florida but across the
country, the vast majority
of- boaters who become
fatalities would have sur-
vived had they worn a life
jacket," Parramore said.
"This is a lifestyle choice
and not like seat belts.
We're asking boaters to do
the right thing and wear a
life jacket."
There's an especially
sweet enticement for kids
and youth spotted by Law
EnforcemeAt Alliance
members this summer
wearing their life jackets.
They'll be given a card
.redeemable for a Junior
Frosty at any of the six
Wendy's restaurants in Bay
County.
In Bay.County and else-
where. in the Panhandle,
snorkelers and divers are
' reminded that they must
'use a dive flag. Dive flags
are used to keep the people,
who are in the water and
boaters a respectable dis-


tance apart.
, That's especially impor-
tant with the July 1 Sept.
10 scallop season at hand.
The divers-down flag is
red with a white diagonal
stripe. It must be at least
20 by 24 inches if displayed
on a boat; at least 12 by 12
inches if towed on a float by
'the diver or snbrkeler.
In open' waters, vessels
must make an effort to stay
300 feet from a divers-
down flag. In a river, chan-
nel or inlet the distance is
100' feet. Vessels may
operate within those dis-
tances, but at idle speed.

i Monday at .

Noon


A woman in Lehigh
Acres in Lee County had a
surprise Monday morning
when she encountered a
black bear outside of her
work. Del Bagwell told offi-
cers with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) she
was working at Country
Cleaners' in the Sunshine
Plaza when she went out-
side at approximately 7:20
a.m. A black bear came
running around the corner
of the building and bumped
into her.
"She was not knocked to
the ground or injured," said
FWC Officer. Joanne
Adams. "She said she
looked at the bear, and the
.bear .looked at her. Then
she raised her aims' and
backed up slowly to the
* store door."
Bagwell then went
inside the store and the
bear ran off, Adams said.
"Ms. Bagwell did the
right thing," said Dave
Telesco, FWC Bear
Management Program
coordinator. "She did not
panic or run; she 'backed
away slowly, giving the bear
a clear escape route to run
away."
Seeing a bear in unfa-
miliar surroundings can be
a surprising phenomenon.
Even though the Florida
black bear has increased in
population in the past few
decades, it is still consid-
ered a threatened species
in Florida. As development
encroaches on its habitat, it
is not unusual for bears to
be seen near -human popu-
lations, but it is, highly
unusual for humans' to
come face-to-face with a
bear.
However, if you do
encounter a black bear at
close range, take the follow-
ing precautions: Remain
standing straight up; back
up slowly; speak in a calm,
assertive voice; do not run
or play 'dead; and leave the
bear a clear escape route.
Summer is a very active
time for bears. They are
searching for a variety of
fruits and other seasonal
foods that grow throughout
their range. Summer is also
breeding season, when
bears search far and wide
for mates. Also, in late
summer, juvenile bears dis-
perse from their mother's
home range, and look for
new habitat. All of those
factors can bring bears into


populated areas where they
normally would not veh-
ture.
When wildlife appears
in residential communities,
* the FWC'urges residents to
remove or secure anything


that might attract animals,
such as garbage cans, pet
food, birdseed, outdoor
grills and compost bins. If a
bear continues to come into

New shoreline fishing

license effective Aug. 1


Florida's new shoreline
fishing license requirement
takes effect Aug. 1.
Resident anglers who fish
for saltwater species from
shore or a structure affixed
to shore must have a $9
shoreline fishing license or a
$17 regular saltwater fish-
ing license.
Nonresident anglers
need a regular nonresident
saltwater fishing license to
fish from shore or from a
vessel. Short-term and
annual nonresident fishing
licenses cost between $17,
and $47.
* Additional -fees may
-apply to all fishing licenses,
depending on where an
angler 'purchases the
license.
The shoreline require-
ment allows exemptions for
resident anglers who fish in
their home county, using
live or natural bait, on a
line or pole without a line-


retrieval mechanism. This
exemption does not apply
to anglers who use nets,
traps, gigs, spears or who
gather seafood by hand or
any type of gear other than
hook and line.
Other exemptions apply
for anglers who qualify for
temporary cash assistance,
food stamps or Medicaid.
Also, resident anglers who
are age 65 or older and chil-
dren under age 16 may fish
without a license. Active-
duty military personnel
may fish without a license
while home on leave in
Florida.
Licensed fishing piers
have licenses that cover
everyone who fishes from
them.
The FWC suggests the
$17 regular saltwater fish-
ing license may be the best
option for most resident

Families urged to sign up


for Kidcare health coverage


Florida CFO Alex Sink
is urging Florida's families
to make sure their children
have health care coverage,
as new reforms to simplify
and streamline Florida's
KidCare program went into
effect today. For more
information about enroll-
ment in Florida KidCare,
families can visit www.flori-
dakidcare.org to apply on-
line or call 1-888-540-5437
to receive an application by
mail.
"In these tough times,
we should make it as easy
as possible for Florida's
families to get their chil-
dren the heath care they


need," said CFO Sink. "I
am so pleased that we were
able to finally remove the
unnecessary barriers that
made it difficult for
Florida's kids to be enrolled
and stay enrolled in
Healthy Kids, and urge
Floridians to make sure
their children are covered."
CFO Sink, who chaired
the Healthy Kids Board
during her first 20 months
in office, supported legisla-
tion sponsored by Senator
Nan Rich and
Representative Jimmy
Patronis this spring, and
has pushed for these
reforms for three legislative


sessions. The new law that
goes into effect today will
remove administrative bar-
riers to the program and
make changes to expedite
enrollment with no addi-
tional funding required.
The Florida Healthy

These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for
activities to. be undertaken by the Calhoun County Board of County Commissioners.
REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS
On or about August 3, 2009, Calhoun County will submit a request to the Florida
Department of Community Affairs for the release of Community Development Block
Grant (CDBG) funds under Title I. of the Housing and Community Development Act,
as amended, to undertake the CDBG project: Paving County roads: NW Lamont

Florida bans additives



in honey, first in nation


TALLAHASSEE --
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced
that his department has
instituted the first regula-
tion in the nation and per-
haps the world prohibiting
any additives, chemicals or
adulterants in honey that is
produced, processed or sold
in Florida. The regulation,
which takes effect July 14,
provides the first-ever
"Standard of Identity" for
honey.
"We want to assure con-
sumers that the product
that they are buying is
pure," Bronson said. "Too
often in the past, honey has
been cut with water or
sugar, and sometimes even
contaminated with insecti-
cides or antibiotics. In the
future, when you're paying
for honey in this state, pure
honey is-what you will get."
State Rep. Alan Hays,
of Umatilla, has been a
major advocate of the new
regulation, which is sup-
ported 'by Florida's honey
industry, and joined
Bronson at a press confer-
ence here today to unveil'
the new rule.
I"I am pleased that the
Florida Department of


Agriculture and Consumer
Services is leading the way
for all America in establish-
ing this standard by which
all honey may now be
measured," Hays said.
"Commissioner Bronson
and the leaders of the
honey.industry beekeep-
ers and honey processors -
are to be applauded for
their leadership in protect-
ing not only the' health of
Floridians but also in pro-
tecting this industry which
is so vital to the production
of food products for all
mankind." .
Under terms of the new
regulation, honey contain-
ing anything other than the
"natural food product
resulting from the harvest
of nectar by honeybees" is
considered an adulterated
or mislabeled product.
Such products are subject
to a "stop sale" order in
which a manufacturer,
processor or merchant
would be served with an
order prohibiting the prod:
uct's sale. Repeat offenders
would face fines of up to
$500 per violation.
Florida is the fourth-
leading honey producing
state in the country with
cash receipts to beekeepers'
of more than $15 million in'


2008 and an industry that
has an economic impact
estimated at $40 million a
year. It employs more than
500 Floridians.
As a result of a flood of
adulterated honey from
overseas into Florida in
2006, a petition was sub-
mitted to the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration
(FDA) later that year by
five major honey producers
.and processors, asking the
federal agency to establish
.a U.S. standard of identity
for honey. Two years later,
the FDA responded that
due to other pressing mat-
ters, it would be unable to
review the petition.
At that point, the indus-
try asked Bronson's depart-
ment if it would consider
developing a standard of
identity for the product,
and today's announcement
is the culmination of that
effort.
Brohson noted that
despite efforts in various
quarters, international gov-
erning bodies have to date
been unable to establish an
international definition of
or standard of identity for
honey, making it likely that
Florida's regulation govern-
ing honey may be the first
of its kind anywhere.


Small farm survey sheds'



light on big contributions


The U.S. Department of
Agriculture considers any
farm a "small farm" if it has
less than $250,000 in
annual gross sales, but that
definition is too broad to
provide a sense : of what
Florida's small farms ,are.
really like. ..
So the University. of
Florida and Florida A&M
University surveyed small
farmers statewide, and
about 300 responded. The
results shed light on pro-'
ducer demographics and
confirm that small farms
make important contribu-
tions to local economies.
In terms of land, 64 per'-
cent of the participants
farmed 50 acres or less.
Their motivations varied
widely. Many partici-
pants-39 percent-
reported that farming was
moderately important or
very important as a pri-
mary source of income, and
52 percent relied on farm-
ing for supplemental
income. Farming was a
part-time occupation for 44
percent.
Other popular reasons
included maintaining a
family tradition, wanting to
own a business and enjoy-
ing the farming lifestyle.


Despite farming's image
as a calling pursued from
childhood, many "of
Florida's small farmers are
new to the activity. Sixty
percent indicated that no'
one else in their family
farmed, and 44 percent'
said'they-were the first gein-
eration of farmers in their'
family. Fifteen percent
. reported having less than
five year' experience.

Altogether, the partici-
pants produced 35 items.
The most 'common were
beef cattle (produced by 33
percent), horses (17 per-
cent), goats (16 percent),
vegetables (14 percent)
and flowers or bedding
plants (11 percent).
Other enterprises
included hay, fruits, herbs,
poultry, aquaculture, bee-
keeping, timber and pine
straw. Crop diversity is
essential to farm sustain-
ability, and 45 percent of
the participants reported
producing -two or more
items."
Forty-three percent of
participants said they fol-
lowed organic principles,
but only. 6 percent had
obtained organic certifica-
tion from the USDA.


Challenges facing
Florida's small farmers
include marketing their
crops at a profit, finding
affordable' materials and
supplies,. obtaining reliable,
information, and complying
'with state and federal regu-'
Iatidns.t -
To address these issues,
regional small farm confer-
ences are held throughout
the state. This summer,'the
first statewide conference
will provide small farmers a
forum for exchanging ideas
and-an opportunity to learn
about strategies to improve
the sustainability .of their
farms.

On Aug. 1-2, 2009, the
first Florida Small Farms
and Alternative
Enterprises Conference
will be held at Osceola
Heritage Park in
Kissimmee. The event will
feature exhibitors, educa-
tional sessions and more.
All Florida farmers are
invited to attend. Visit the
conference Web site at
http://smallfarms.ifas.ufl.ed

ference sponsorship or

TALLAHASSEE -- As
Congress continues to
debate and fashion extraor-
dinary energy policy to'
reduce greenhouse gas
emissions and dependency
on foreign oil, Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is forg-
ing ahead with his efforts to
promote the production of
renewable energy from
Florida's vast biomass
resources.
Bronson is kicking off
the 2009 Farm to Fuel
Summit on July 29 to bring
together hundreds of indus-
try leaders in agriculture,
petroleum, academia,
financial institutions and
the government who want
to make Florida a leader in
the production of renew-
able energy.
Highlights of the
Summit include keynote
speeches from U.S. Under
Secretary of Agriculture
Dallas Tonsager and
Florida Governor Charlie
Crist, and a special pre-
miere of Josh Tickell's
award winning documen-


tary film, "FUEL." This
year's Summit will also
include more than 40
exhibitors.
"With each' passing day,
the need for alternative
sources of fuel and energy
becomes more critical,"
Bronson said. "Florida has
the greatest potential for
biomass production in the
country, and the technology
exists to convert natural
resources to produce clean,
alternative fuel. This con-
ference will bring together
all the stakeholders so we
can continue working
toward the goal of reducing
our dependence on foreign
oil while at the same time
providing another source of
income for our struggling
farmers."
Participants will hear
about the latest renewable
energy technologies, chal-
lenges relating to project
financing, permitting and
infrastructure, and the
growing market for carbon
credits.
"The summit will bring
representatives of all of the
key industries together so


we can move forward as a
state in creating renewable
energy in Florida," Bronson
said. "Thanks to our mild
climate, ample sunshine
and abundant rainfall,
there's no reason why
Florida cannot out produce
every other state in renew-
able energy production and
be a model for others to fol-
low."
This year's Summit
returns for a second year to
the Rosen Shingle Creek
which in 2007 was desig-
nated as a Florida Green
Lodge. In addition, green-
house gas (GHG) emissions
associated with the summit
will be offset by renewable
energy certificates retired
by Carbon Offset
Originators, LLC.
The 2009 Farm to Fuel
Summit will begin with an
evening reception on
Wednesday, July 29, and
conclude at noon on Friday,
July 31. The media is wel-
come to attend.

As 'it spells out loud and

Independence, "...govern-
ments are instituted :among
men, deriving their just
powers from the consent

They have a responsibility

Public officials have two

-Ron Paul


"He said I already started
work building roads and a
house and I did not have a
permit. They didn't call
and ask me. Jimmy Hand
is my engineer and he had
been in the hospital, but it'-
made it a mute point
because we hadn't started
work on the subdivision,"
Terry emphasizes, stating
he was only building one
house with a driveway not
multiple homes and no
roads which he says was
completely legal, since he
,had the required permits to
do that. In fact, the home
was for the builder's daugh-
ter; Holley owns the land,
he's building the house on
the site. .
But Terry was unable to
explain any of this 'at the
June 16 meeting. Why?
Because he had no notice
that his building project
was on the agenda. He
learned the matter had.
been discussed after receiv-
ing phone calls from radio
listeners who heard
Commission Chairman
Dan Wyrick being inter-
viewed by Harry Hagan of
WYBT/WPHK.
At the following meeting
*last Tuesday, July 7, Terry
and his lawyer, Jonna
Bowman, appeared' and,
explained that the so-called
road 'was, in fact,, a dri way a; he 'had all the per-
mits in place -to build that
house.
After discussion, the
board seemed to have a
cleprer picture of what,
Tetry and Holley are doing
building one house until
the subdivision receives
final approval. However,
Commission% Chairman


Dan Wyrick questioned
Terry about advertising the
proposed subdivision.
"That's not against the
law," Terry responded.-
"That's none of your busi-
ness."
Wyrick countered, "It is
my business."
Bowman, Terry's attor-
ney, then explained that
advance advertising is done
to determine if there is any
interest in the subdivision
before investing any money
in.the project..
But Terry's main con-
cern was the potential
damage to his reputation
after the radio interview
that resulted in a dozen
calls questioning his
actions. "Did you take the
time to call me and ask me
[what was going on]? All of
this could have been avoid-
ed, but you've been on the
radio for two 'weeks and
I've been getting
slammed."
When Terry raised. his
voice during the discussion,
Chairman Wyrick told him,
"Nobody here has a prob-
lem hearing."
Terry stated that he did
and then asked his attorney
to speak for him.
"What you say here and
on the radio has a huge
impact," she' remarked.
"...the problem is if there's
-inaccurate information it
, makes it sound like if some-
body buys a house. from
this man, there's going to
be legal problems. If that
were true, people should
know. But if not, that's a.
problem."
Wyrick thanked
Bowman for her comments
and Terry. stated that he


was not satisfied.
"Thank you," Wyrick
responded.
When Terry continued
asking for some resolution,
Wyrick motioned for the
bailiff to remove him from
the meeting. The bailiff
stood by as the conversa-
tion continued. "I want to
know what you're going to
do?" Terry asked. "You've
trashed my name. Are you
going to get on the radio


and say you're sorry?"
Wyrick replied, "You've
answered our questions
and we'll put it on the
radio.
Bowman stressed that it
needs to be clear- that Terry
did nothing wrong.
At meeting's end, Terry
was not satisfied, feeling he
was dismissed without any
real resolution. "I'm plan-
ning- legal action," he told
The County Record.

Dave Moon


works his


Lego magic

once again!

There's not much Dave Moon of
Blountstown can't do with a box of
Legos. He has made replicas of
pyramids, cars, famous towers,
rockets just to name a few of his
creations. His most recent project
is a giant Lego container matching
one of the company's boxes.
Moon (shown at left) with the
Lego box, made of and filled with
Legos, says the design contains
47 layers of Lego bricks. An actual
Lego box placed next to him on
the bench shows the scale.
Moon owns over 124,000
Legos and plans to buy even
more!

George

Washington

Pie

By Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D

Sorhe years ago I read of a preacher who, as a teenager;
had worked in a bakery. He said that the bakery displayed
one kind of pastry which became a very popular item. it
was called 'George Washington Pie.' It was popular for tw.o
reasons: It was attractive and it was inexpensive. A large
square could be purchased for a nickel and it was a delight
to people of limited means. "
It never occurred to the teenager to question why it was sq
much less expensive than the other items. One day he dis-
covered how it was made. The old baker in the little shop
just took the leftovers of stale bread and cake. The old baker
mixed them together and compounded them into their own
special type of pastry. After the product was properly embel-
lished with an attractive and tasty sauce, cut into generous
squares, and then properly displayed, it looked like a delica-
cy fit for a king.
George Washington Pie was the baker's answer to 'hash'.
There was not a lot of planning and organization put into it,
and its flavor varied from week to week depending on whit
the leftovers were at the time of baking.
There is a danger in letting one's life become George
Washington Pie. Without any planning and without any
quality ingredients, life can easily degenerate into nothing-
ness. It may look like it has body, and it may have the
appearance of being tasty and appetizing, but if one looks
under the surface it will be discovered that it is a life of hash:
Life was never intended to be lived without pattern and
organization. There is work to be done, decisions to be
made, and plans to be formulated if a given life is to reach
its objective. A person can no more expect to drift without
purpose through life and succeed, than a student can expect
to drift through college and receive a degree.
God had a Promised Land for His people who had been
for many years in bondage to Egypt. These people spent
forty years wandering in a wilderness and finally saw that ?J
the Promised Land was to be had, the enemy must be defeat:
ed and the land must be conquered. They heard God's choq
sen leader say, "I call heaven, and earth to record this day
against you, that I have set before you' life and death, bless,
ing and nursing; therefore choose life, that both you and you?
seed may live.'
Be in church Sundayl!
