WOMEN CHARGED WITH



MURDER BACK IN COURT

The three women who allegedly conspired with Octavious Barnes to rob
Slip 'N Slide bar owner Bradley Harvell were back in court Monday to face
second degree murder charges in Barnes' death. Mandy Allen, 43, pic-
tured at left, along with Jessica Nicole Long, 19, and Heather Marie
Ammons, 22, shown above as they are led to the courthouse, all entered
pleas of not guilty. Barnes was shot and killed by Harvell after appearing
at his door the night of July 19, dressed like a ninja and holding what
turned out to, be a toy gun. Barnes reportedly forced his way inside,
demanded all Harvell's money and was killed by the 83 year old man.
According to Florida law, if someone is killed during the perpetration or
S attempt to commit a felony, anyone involved in orchestrating the crime will
be charged with murder.

EMS CENTER, CUNIC PLANNED


Hospital awarded

$450k from feds


U.S. Congressman
Allen Boyd (D-North
Florida), a member of
the House
Appropriations
Committee, has
secured $450,000 in
federal funding for the
Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital to be used to
help construct a new
Emergency Medical
'Service Center and
Outpatient/Specialty
Clinic.
With these funds,
the Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital will be able to
begin construction on a
new facility to house an
ambulance service and
additional examination
rooms on the hospital
campus. This new
facility will provide vis-
iting specialists with
more room to see
patients and greatly
enhance healthcare
services in the area.
"This federal fund-
ing is great news for


the people of Calhoun
and Liberty Counties,"
said Congressman
Boyd. "Ensuring
affordable, .reliable,
and quality healthcare
in our rural communi-
ties is a top priority for
me and the people of
North Florida, and
through this federal
funding, Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital will
be able to expand their
facilities and enhance
healthcare services in
the area."
Congressman Boyd
included funding for
this project in the
Labor, Health and
Human Services, and
E d u c a-t i o n
Appropriations bill for
Fiscal Year 2010,
which passed in the
House of
Representatives today.
The bill now awaits
consideration by the
Senate.

Ethics

cases are

dismissed


against

Sheriff &


deputies

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Cases have been dis-
missed against Calhoun
County Sheriff David
Tatum and two of his
deputies named in an ethics
complaint filed by a former
candidate for sheriff.
Mike Carpenter, who
ran against Tatum last year,
filed the ethics complaints
after a photo surfaced in
October during a heated
campaign season. The pic-
ture, taken following a drug
bust, depicted Calhoun
County Sheriff's Deputy
Eddie Dalton and Sgt.
Mark "Kipper" Mallory
holding a bag of pot and
scales seized in the bust.
They were shown holding
the items in front of a truck
parked at the suspect's
home bearing one of
Carpenter's campaign
signs. A tagline on top of
the photo stated, "We
Don't Like Mike". The
photo was reportedly circu-
lated over text messages
and emails.
The Florida
Commission on Ethics met
in Tallahassee July 24th
and found that there was no
probable cause to believe
that Dalton misused his
position or official resources
regarding his involvement
with the photograph that
was used to impact
Carpenter's campaign.
Mallory was also cleared of
the same charges with a
finding of no probable
cause. The Commission
dismissed a complaint filed
by Carpenter against
Sheriff David Tatum in the
same matter for lack of
legal sufficiency.

Reader unhappy Superior

Bank is closing in Altha


To the Editor:
I am in receipt of a letter
from David Biliter,
'Executive Vice President of
.Superior Bank, in which he
states he is planning to
"consolidate" the Altha
'branch into the
Blountstown branch of
.Superior Bank.
I spent over two years
-picking the town of Altha as
a retirement location and
,my wife and I are extreme-
ly happy with our choice. It
;is a great town with one of
-everything people need and
�a place where everyone is
-friendly and helpful. It has
just the right minimum
.services for the surrounding
,area, as proven by the
,many people outside the
:city limits who choose a
,post office box there, even if
they live miles outside of
town.
In fact, the only problem
AI have with living here is
that outside people appear
,to try to destroy the town
spirit. First, outsiders tried
*to destroy the school and
;team spirit (shared by


everyone here, not just the
parents and students). Now
they want to take away our
only bank.
If .you live in
Blountstown or Bristol, just
remember they each have a
branch; do you want to
drive across the river? In
addition, when I found they
had no plans to relocate or
find jobs for the Altha
branch employees, I signed
the petition against closing
and we will change banks if
they go through with this.
I spoke with the manag-
er of the Blountstown
branch, but she said the
decision was made in
Atlanta, not locally. If you
want to complain to the
person responsible, go to
the website at www.superi-
orbank.com to send an
email or write to E.V.P
David Biliter, Office of
Thrift Supervision, 1475
Peachtree Street N.E.,
Atlanta, GA 30309, and let
him know that we decide
where to bank.

Declining Flows & Levels

Apalachicola River topic

of FSU lecture August 13


The Coastal & Marine
Conservation Lecture
Series is open to the public
and occurs on the second
Thursday of each month in
the Florida State
University Coastal &
Marine Laboratory
Auditorium. "Declining
Flows and Levels in the
Apalachicola River and
Effects on Floodplain
Habitats" is the topic of the
lecture set for Thursday,
August 13, from 7 to 9 p.m.
ET. Helen M. Light, U.S.
Geological Survey, retired,
will be the featured speak-
er. Light refreshments will
be served after the lecture.
Apalachicola River lev-
els have been declining for
more than 50 years, with
consequences to forests and
streams throughout its
extensive floodplain. Over
the last three decades, the
composition of floodplain
forests has shifted to a drier
mix of species, and further
changes toward drier
species could continue for
many more decades.
Swamp species (water
tupelo, Ogeechee tupelo,
bald cypress, and Carolina
ash) have declined in densi-
ty, with approximately 3.3
million fewer swamp trees
estimated in a 2004-06
study than were reported in
studies from 1976 to 1979.
Some low bottomland hard-
woods such as overcup oak
and green ash have also
declined in numbers in bot-
tomland hardwood forests,
while drier species such as
water oak and hackberry


have become more numer-
ous.
Floodplain streams,
sloughs, and lakes are dis-
connected from the main
river channel more often
and for longer durations
than 50 years ago, substan-
tially decreasing offstream
habitat for fishes, mussels,
and other aquatic animals.
Decreased flows have
caused increased salinity in
over 95 miles of streams in
the lower tidal reach (tribu-
taries and distributaries in
the floodplain and main
river channel).
Declines in river flows
and levels have been great-
est in spring and summer,
which are the most impor-
tant seasons for biological
processes such as tree
growth and fish spawning.
Since 1975, there has been
less flow in spring and sum-
mer as a result of water use,
flow regulation, reservoir
evaporation, and changes in
rainfall patterns in the
basin upstream. These
declines in flow have exac-
erbated earlier water-level
declines that were caused
by channel erosion from
engineering works begun in
the 1950s (dam construc-
tion and navigation
improvements such as river
straightening, dredging, and
wood-debris removal).
The Florida State
University Coastal and
Marine Laboratory is locat-
ed at 3618 Highway 98 in
St. Teresa (between
Carrabelle and
Crawfordville).

FWC seeking info on theft of hoop


nets used for researching turtles


Sometime between noon
Wednesday and early this
morning, someone stole
four Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)
research hoop nets from
Lockey Lake, off the
Apalachicola River in Gulf
County.
Kim Sash, an FWC-
wildlife biologist who works
on the Apalachicola River
Wildlife and
Environmental Area, said
the 10-foot-long, barrel-
shaped nets or traps were
partially exposed above the
waterline in the small lake
across from Bryant
Landing. The hoop nets
are used to capture and tag
alligator snapping turtles, a
species of special concern.
S---All of the turtles are-
released on site.
Each of the hoop nets,
identified as FWC proper-
ty, costs $135.
"We hope someone will
have a change of heart and
:return the traps as soon as '
possible," Sash said. "If
that happens, there'll be no
questions asked."
Sash said she could be
reached at 850-827-2417.
Otherwise, taking and
keeping the traps is a
felony. The Gulf County

Never A Dull Moment


by J.K. Newsome





Quirks...we all got 'em


Habits. We all have
them, what are they, how
are they made, how do we
break them if we choose?
I'm not necessarily speak-
ing of the good habits we
should all have; brushing
our teeth, taking baths,
looking both ways twice
before pulling onto a road,
checking for bees, well the
list goes on forever.
However, on the debit
side of the sheet there are
bad habits: overeating,
overdrinking, driving while
texting, slurping when we
drink, the list is just as long.
I think what I want to
investigate may be more
aptly called quirks. Things
that can fall into the catego-
ry of habits, but are more
individual. Little things you
find yourself doing or see:
others doing that seem to
be unique. Certainly more
than one person can share
a quirk, but I propose that
it is still a little different
between individuals.
I find it entertaining to
examine my own, and oth-
ers' quirks, to try and dis-
cover their birth, what sat
them on a course to
become a part of me, or just
why the heck I do that. I'll
give you an example.
I have used this in some
training to teach people to
examine and even question
why things are done a cer-
tain way. The story goes
that the British military
hired a consultant to study
battle field operations in
order to make them more
efficient. One day while
observing a team firing
rounds from a field gun, he
observed a 10 second delay
between the time the round
was chambered and fired.
The soldiers could not
explain the delay; it was


just how they were trained.
The consultant started
pouring thru manuals to
discover the reason. After
going many years back, he
discovered at one point in
time, the soldiers would
load a shell, yet wait 10
seconds for someone to
steady the horses that
pulled the cannon! Horses
were no longer used, but
the delay had never been
completely removed from
the manual.
One summer day, Nancy
and I were working at the
firehouse. We noticed a
lady parked out near the
road, in a car we did not
recognize. The woman got
out and started walking
toward us, so we met her
half way, figuring she need-
ed directions. She was
about my age, pleasantly
plump with a hair color that
I'm sure matched the top of
a box purchased at Wal-
Mart. After hellos, she
asked this geniof a ques-
tion: "Where's a tire store
around here?"
Ok, go ahead and laugh,
she's not standing with you
in the middle of Kinard like
she is with us. After some
thought, my best reply was
that, believe it or not, I was
the closest she would find
in these parts. Turns out,
she had recently bought the
vehicle, had a flat, and dis-
covered she had no spare. I
took a look at her spent
tire's size and left her there
with Nancy while I drove
home to check my invento-
ry of stuff/junk/trash
(depending on who you
ask) and found a suitable
replacement.
Back at the station, I
told her the good news,
along with the fact that
Wewa would be the closest


place to get it mounted on
her rim. We loaded up in
Nancy's Lincoln and head-
ed out to find some place to
swap out the tires, two
strangers together in. a car
for a 15 minute ride. Ten
strangers on a bus can sit in
silence. Two friends or fam-
ily can pass the time lost in
their own thoughts. But
two strangers feel obligated
to fill the void with small
talk or else it just feels
weird.
I learned this was her
first day on a new job, the
type of job you go to some-
one's home, do your spiel,
and ask for the order. She
was from Marianna, never
been to Kinard, and had
spent hours driving down
dirt/gravel roads trying to
find her potential client,
with whom she had an
appointment with that day.
She discovered when she
arrived, that the only per-
son home was the person's
daughter informing her the
mother had been called
into work, and was not
home today. (Thanks for
the heads up call, lady.) On
her way back to the high-
way her troubles were
awarded with a flat tire.
I told her about where I
worked. I spoke about my
kids, flats I have had in my
life. We shared stories of
the joys of used cars, new
jobs, things we passed on
our trip, and so forth. She
had to admit she was low
on funds, not expecting to
have a break down. I let
her know the tire was free,
and I was sure the work
needed would be reason-
able, if we found someone
who could do it. We chatted
up a storm as they say, till
just arriving in town we
spotted a gas station on the


right and it looked like it
had a small attached shop.
We pulled in. She took the
lead and stepped up to the
open shop door and was
greeted by a man in his
twenties who asked what
she needed, noticing me
coming up behind with a
flat on a rim in one hand
and a used tire in the other,
he just knowing took them
and turned. Over his shoul-
der he muttered, "Want it
balanced?" she looked at
me, I nodded. "Yes,
please."
"New stem?"
Nod.
"Yes, please."
"Take about five' min-
utes."
We stood in the "wait-
ing/standing" place and
were just about to engage
in chit-chat again when a
lady came out of the un-
shop part of the building
looked at me and said,
"You JK Newsome?"
There was a slight, puz-
zled pause. "Yes ma'am."
"You got a phone call."
Had she not turned to'
walk back in, she would
have seen the dumb look
on my face, mostly an out-
ward sign of my state of
confusion. (Actually, if we
Americans voted to add a
new state and call it
Confusion, I would move
there and run for governor,
and win.)
As I followed her into
the office I was trying to
explain that it was impossi-
ble, no one knew where I
was. The "office" was just
large enough for her
invoice, bills, calculator,
phone, calendar, kid school
picture covered desk. A

Laundry

Scavenger

|^q ^funt
.By T'he TCryLady,
. arCa Cilley

Do you feel like you never get finished with the laundry?
Is there evidence of the laundry process all over your home?
Are there soured towels in the washing machine because you
forgot about them? Do you have a dryer full of wrinkled
clothes because you were on the.phone when the buzzer
went off? If you actually folded them are they still on top of
your dryer or piled in your laundry basket waiting to be put
away?
Laundry is just like dishes. If you eat on plates and drink
water out of glasses; you will have dirty dishes. If you get up
and get dressed and get ready for bed you will have dirty
clothes. Dishes or clothes don't magically get clean, some-
one has to lift a hand to start the process. Starting the
process is just the beginning of five step journey of climbing
Mount Washmore!
One day you wake up to no clean underwear. So you
either have to go buy some new undies or do the laundry. By
this time you have worn every clean item of clothing you
have and Mount Washmore seems like Mount Everest.
Where do you start?
If your laundry has gotten out of hand there is a good
chance that you do not have a routine for staying on top of
it! I am going to teach you how to get it done and then give
you a routine for keeping up with it.
We are going on a laundry scavenger hunt. Put on some
fun music! Go to your laundry room and check the washer
and dryer for forgotten clothes. Start sorting those clothes into
piles: Whites, delicates, colors, jeans, towels and sheets.
Then check your laundry hot spots; the bathroom floor and
hamper, treadmill handlebars and the bedroom chair. You
know your favorite dumping ground for dirty clothes. Get the
children involved too.,Ask them to look under their beds and
in their closets. Keep sorting the clothing into your piles.
Next gather up all your laundry baskets and put your
laundry detergent, softener and stain pretreater in one basket.
Then go to all your closets and gather up all the empty hang-
ers and put them in another basket. You have lots of piles of
clothes. Put single loads, in garbage bags and take them to
your car. You probably have ten or more loads. The next
thing you are hunting for in this scavenger hunt is money. Go
cushion diving or your change jar to gather up coins for the
Laundromat. Now don't fuss that you have a washing
machine and a dryer. You have not been using them. It is
time to get this done!
Before you leave the house, clean out one drawer for each
family member. Most of the clothes in your drawers you do
not wear because if you did they would be in the dirty clothes
bags. So put them in a give-away bag. This way when you
get home from Laundromat you will have a place to put your
clean clothes'. As you are folding the clothes at the
Laundromat don't fold things that you don't love or that does
not fit. If it is too stained to give away then put it in the trash.
Have a give-away bag handy as you are doing your folding.
Don't take anything home that is just going to become a
stumbling block to your daily routine of doing the laundry.
A load a day keeps you from having tq scale Mount
Washfnore! Don't wait till you are overwhelmed.

J.K cont'd


chrome bar skeletoned
couch occupied by an elder-
ly guy engrossed in his IGA
carry out lunch took up
most of the wall to my right.
Door to the "shop" was on
my left. I suppose the
couch was the "waiting/sit-
ting" place. The man didn't
even look up, and the lady
seemed to not even hear
what I had said, just sat and
went back to her duties, as
I followed the cord to the
phone hand set, I picked it
up and said in an anticipat-
ing sounding voice,
"Hello?"
Almost immediately
from the north end of the
hand set came the carefully
metered voice of my wife, a
voice searching for control
and wanting to convey a
request to me without curs-
ing or screaming, yet be
crystal clear, "AN SER
YOU R CELL
PHONE!!!!!!!!"
SI felt a small panic
because something impor-
tant had happened and I
had missed a call. Did I not
have a signal?? Had I left it
at the fire station??
Neither, it was in the car
under the seat with 18
missed calls on it from the
person (I will spare you the
direct quotes) who had just
explained to me that I had
an open microphone on the
department radio for the
entire trip to Wewa and
that anyone who had theirs
on (like the sheriff's office,
or anyone with a scanner)
had been inadvertently
privileged to me aind my
new friend's conversation
since we left Kinard.
Quickly my mind raced
through what we had talked
about. Had I said anything


bad about anyone, told any
secrets?? T~rns out mostly
I just had the channel tied
up and Nancy had recog-
nized my voice right off and
had made desperate
attempts' to reach me on
my cell, then she got a
phone book and started
calling every gas station,
residence, warehouse,
farmhouse, henhouse, and
doghouse she could think of
to locate her "fugitive". She
got lucky on about the sec-
ond try.
I quickly found the prob-
lem and released the hand
set from between the arm
rest of Nancy's Lincoln.
I now had joined the
ranks of knuckleheads
whom have had an open
microphone on a fire
department radio and been
grumbled at by listeners
county wide. Sorry...my
bad.
What has this got to do
with quirks, I'm sure
you've asked yourself.
Nancy will make triple sure
when she is in her car,
regardless of which one of
us turns on the VHF radio,
that the mic is not sat on,
pinched or in any form or
fashion "open". She will
wait 30 seconds after hang-
ing up the house phone to
say anything about who
called, and almost turn her
cell off, before doing the
same, and I am sure she
will have these quirks for-
ever. I am more careful
now, too.
Enjoy your quirks. Be
forgiving of others. I think
we share habits, good and
bad with thousands, but
quirks make us unique.

By way of definition: There is a decide - the killing of a
god; patricide the killing of one's father; fratricide - the killing
of one's brother or sister, etc., then we have suicide - the
killing of one's self.
Numbers of people have asked me questions concerning A
suicide. I will attempt to answer some, but in a short arti-
cle it is impossible to go into the subject in any depth.
I have found that it seems to be the consensus among
psychologists and also among psychiatrists that those who
commit suicide are under severe emotional disturbance
prior to and at the time of the suicide.
Dr. Clyde Naramore wrote: "Whether a person merely
threatens to take his life or actually carries it out, it is an
indication of emotional disturbance. It is often said that the
person who threatens to take his life will not actually carry
this out. But such is not the case. Some who speak of sui-
cide do not actually attempt to end their lives, but their
threats should not be ignored. The reality of the emotional
disturbance does not depend on whether the person actual-
ly attempts to take his life. Regardless of his words, he still
needs help.'
Dr. Gordon wrote: "Suicide (actual or attempted) is
regarded in most cases as a sign of SEVERE emotional dis-
order."
Very often an attempted suicide is in effect a 'cry for help.'
The individual does not really want to die. What he does
want is somebody to render the help he is crying out for.
Most times the person in this frame of mind doesn't really
expect to die. If he drives his car into a tree, or jumps over-
board from a ship, he expects that at the last minute by
some means he will be saved. Illogical? Yes, but a person
who has reached this level of emotional disturbance is not
likely to concern himself with considerations of logic.
Dr. Noyes states in the Seventh Edition of Modern Clinical
Psychiatry: "Obsessive preoccupation with suicidal
thoughts is pathological. Those who attempt suicide man-
age to give warning of their distress.'
Again, indicating that one who talks about suicide often,
those who attempt suicide and those who are actually suc-
cessful in their effort to commit suicide, are certainly not in
a healthy emotional state. Anyone in this state of emotion-
al disturbance should definitely see a counselor..
I hope this will help some of those who have asked con-
cerning this situation.

CHILDREN OF GOD
Galatiahs 3:26
No matter what our size, color, shape, language, race,
style of thinking, level of finance, education, or rank, you and,
I share the same Father!
Wow! How blessed I am to belong to your family! How
glad I am to share the same precious redeeming Older
Brother! (Jesus)
You and I are probably very different in many ways..
Actually, it would be strange if we weren't different because
we were made by the Master of creative variety. Think of all
the varieties in sea life, or consider the reptiles. How many
kinds of turtles do you suppose there are? Or snakes? Or
birds? I have seen many different, kinds of birds from my
own bird feeder and yard. Everything from a Rufous - Sided
Towhee to a Pileated Woodpecker. Would you believe there
are over 1,000 kinds of butterflies in the little country of Costa
Rica. We could go on and ori, right?
So will you and I be surprised when we meet in heaven
and find that we're different? Our Heavenly Father made us
this way.
Do you suppose that explains why I praise Him with quiet
tears, while you raise your hands, someone else speaks elo-
quently, and another shouts, or sings, or writes a song?
How many different styles of worship there are by a vari-
ety of people of one great, creative Heavenly Father! Isn't it
wonderful? We are all children of the King.

Blaze claims home of volunteer



firefighter, School Bd. member

Blountstown volunteer firefighters responded to a call for one of their own last Tuesday
afternoon when the South Main Street home of Ken and Arleshia Speights caught on fire.
"This is devastating," said Blountstown Fire Chief Ben Hall. "Ken is one of our firefighters."
Fortunately, the couple and their children were not at home when the blaze broke out
around 1 p.m. Their small dog, Rufus, Iictured below, came running out the minute Major
Rodney Smith of the Blountstown Police Department forced open the front door. The West
Side Volunteer Fire Department also assisted.
In addition to volunteering for the fire department, Speights also serves as School Board
member for district 4. He is pictured above at the scene being consoled by family friend,
Pauline Holmes.
According to Chief Hall,
the majority of damage was
to the back of the home
with smoke damage
throughout-the house.
Firefighters were able to
contain the blaze before it
destroyed the front rooms,
as well as a couple back
bedrooms.
