Calhoun Co. traffic stop
results in cocaine arrest
A 24-year-old man is facing some serious
charges after he was found to be in possession of
8.5 grams of cocaine, a firearm and a large amount
of cash during a traffic stop last week in Calhoun
Deputy Chris Porter was on State Road 20 just
before 6 p.m. Oct. 25 when he caught up with a
car weaving from side-to-side in its lane. After
noticing the patrol car, the driver kept looking into
the rear view mirror and began crossing the white
line numerous times while slowing down from 55
mph to 45 mph in a posted 60 mph zone, according
to the deputy's report.
When Porter pulled the car over the driver, Clint
Christopher Davis Jr., told him he knew he was all
over the road, but it was because the car's front end
was out of alignment.
Davis was asked to step out of the car for a-
pat-down search during which a large wad of cash
totaling $706 was-found. When asked for consent
to search the vehicle for weapons or drugs, Davis
said there was a gun in the car and admitted that
he and a friend had smoked marijuana earlier in
A canine officer was used to search the exterior
of the car and gave a passive alert at the seam be-
tween the passenger side front and rear doors.
The deputy then asked for consent to search
Davis after the dog's response to the possible pres-
ence of drugs. Davis told the officer he "had a little
powder" on him and then removed a clear plastic
bag containing a white powder substance from his
left shoe. The substance later tested positive for
During a search of the vehicle, a package of
rolling papers was found in the center console and
$100 in cash was found in the driver's visor. AHigh
Point .45-caliber pistol inside a case was located in
the trunk of the car, along with ammunition.
The deputy'i report noted that the cocaine was
placed inside t\ o sand\\ ich bags and the currency
was in bill amount "commonly used to sell and
purchase illegal substances."
Davis was charged with possession of cocaine
with intent to sell and possession of drug para-

deputies arrested for
holding gun on man
and making racial slurs
A 61-year-old man who apparently thought his
neighbors were being robbed got arrested after he
held a suspect at gunpoint and called the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department.
When Bruce Lee of NW 16th Street saw a man
walk to the residence of Jerry and Vickie Harmons
and get their lawnmower around 9:30 a.m. Oct. 26,
he intervened and held a rifle on Justin Black.
According to the deputy's report, Black who
has a child with the Harmons' daughter, Andrea
Morales said he had permission to borrow the
lawnmower to mow the yard of the home they share
behind the Harmons' residence.
Black said he tried to explain the situation to Lee,
who was threatening to shoot him, using racial slurs
and told him he "looked like a thief," according to
the deputy's report.
As Lee continued to hold the gun on him, Black
told him he had left his three-month-old child
asleep at home while coming to get the mower and
asked Lee to allow him to return to check on the
child, but Lee refused and.told him he had called
the sheriff's department;
After deputies arrived and began talkirig wih
Black, Lee walked over to the men and began to
verbally batter Black. .
At that point, Lee was.placed under arrest for
aggravated assault. He then turned his anger on the
deputiies and began calling them names. '
i Lee was uncooperative as deputies tried to place
him in a patrol car before he wvas finally brought in
and booked into the county jail. He is being held
on $2,500 bond. '

Calhoun man charged
with 4 counts of assault
for threatening movers
An Aug. 25 incident at the former residence of
Jay Hoyt Rackley has led to his arrest on four counts
of assault and trespassing after he was picked up on
a warrant Oct. 27.
According to a report from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Department, Rackley, went to his former
home, which had beei repossessed by a bank, and
threatened four people at gunpoint.
The four were part of a moving crew sent there to
take out his possessions and put them in storage.
Rackley had previously been issued a trespassing
warning for the property.
When a deputy arrived, B.J. Tolley, 29, was on
the right-of-way in front of the home and not on the
actual property. She told the deputy that she had
come to see who was moving her possessions out
of her home.
When the deputy spoke to a member of the mov-
ing crew, he was told that a younger male had first
entered the home and told them he wanted to know
where his things were being taken;
Soon afterwards, an older man later identi-
fied as Rackley came in through the back door
and walked up to where the movers were working
near the dining room. He then "threatened to shoot
everyone in the home if they continued moving his
possessions," according to the deputy's report.
The crew left the home and got in their vehicles
and prepared to leave, but were convinced to stay
after an off-duty officer was hired to stand by as they
continued their job.
Rackley was given a conditional release follow-
ing his arrest.
Customer charges she
was pushed out of store
A woman who said she went into a store three
times in an attempt to buy dishes instead wound up
filing charges against a store employee after he al-
legedly attacked her verbally and shoved her out of
the building, according to a report from the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Department.
The customer, Debbie McAlpin Sparks, 45, re-
ported that the first two times she had gone to the
store located adjacent to Connelly's Florist on
Hwy. 69 she was told to come back and speak to
the ownerabout the purchase of some dishes.
When she returned a third time on Oct. 21, Sparks
said she asked a clerk what the owner had decided
to do about the dishes when George Connelly III
"stormed out from the rear of the store," the report'
According to Sparks, Connelly got in her face
and started attacking her verbally. She said he ac-
cused her of trying to "rip him off' by buying the
dishes at a reduced price and reselling them for profit
elsewhere. She said he then put his hands on her
shoulders and physically shoved her out of the store,
into the parking area. He slammed the door in her
face and told her to leave, she said.
A warrant was issued for Connelly and he was
arrested Oct. 27.
He was given a conditional release.
Dad charged with abuse for
spanking children with belt
A Blountstown man is facing two counts of child
abuse after he allegedly disciplined his two children
by hitting them with a belt.When Major Roman Wood
escorted an employee from Children and Families to
the residence of Steve Darnell, he noticed a black belt
with a silver buckle hanging from a door frame. Seeing
that the officer had noticed the belt, Darnell told him,
"Yes, that's the belt in question."
SDamell then told the officer the reason why the third
child had not been spanked. He stated, "Because he's
- going to get it worse."
The Childrenri and Famnilies case worker produced
'pictures f 'the twvo children that showed they had!
been bruised. They were removed from the father's

Driver charged with felony DUI
An Eastpoint man who was traveling well below the posted speed
limit and appeared to have difficulty staying in a single lane was
stopped early Saturday morning by a Liberty County Sheriff's Deputy
while trailing north on State Road 12.
When the driver. Bobby Gene Creamer, stepped out of his vehicle,
he told the officer he did not have a driver's license because it had
been suspended for driving under the influence.
The officer noted the odor of alcohol and asked him to take a
sobriety test. Creamer failed the roadside test ard admitted that he
had been drinking, according to the deputy's report, which also noted
that the driver was trying to get a small plastic, bag out of his pocket
while they were talking.
Creamer was taken to the county jail, where he was charged with
felony DUI, felony driving while license suspended or revoked and
possession of less than 20 grams cannabis.

Insiders say that if Karl Rove resigns, President
Bush will not function effectively. Wait a minute,
all this time he's been functioning effectively?
Bush is so exhausted by all these
scandals that he is praying for another
disaster like a flood or a hurricane so
he can kick back and do nothing.
Crime is down all over the country.
It is down in Washington, D.C. As a

Libby, just another Washington scan-
dal that will pass with time, or is this
an indication of a more fundamental
problem with America's leadership?
I know that there are those on the

but most of us recognize when we are being treated
fairly, and when we are evenly shouldering the load of
President Bush came into office with the promise to
be a uniterr, not a divider." Just the opposite has hap-
pened. America is more polarized around left and right
wing ideologies than ever before.
The right hates the left and the left isn't too fond of the
right. It seems that the only issues important to people
are abortion and gay marriage.
Now that I'm older, with age comes a bit of wisdom.
You recognize that there are some things that can't be
fixed. The abortion issue will never be settled to the satis-
faction of all concerned. As horrible as it nmay be. abortion
is a personal issue to.be decided b\ the conscience and
convictions of the woman. Other than the Rule of Law
protecting the minority from the majority, abortion is not
a governmental issue.
Gay people have been here since the beginning of
time. While the gay lifestyle is abhorrent to some, you
can't completely legislate and control personal conduct.
Even the Rule of Law doesn't stop people from killing
and robbing each other.
In my view, the American people should debate other
issues. The reasons for going to war in Iraq are one of
them. The indictment of Mr. Libby is about the war in
Iraq. The Bush administration was trying to smear this
fellow Wilson because he challenged one of the main
reasons for Mr. Bush's decision to invade Iraq, which was
that Saddam Hussein was attempting to obtain nuclear
materials from the African country of Niger in order to
manufacture weapons of mass destruction.
The Bush administration is spending about $6 billion
dollars per month to wage
k the war in Iraq and Afghani-
stan. Hurricane damage

Much has been written of late
about the foibles of presidential second terms. President
Reagan had his Iran-Contra scandal. President Clinton
had his sex scandal with a White House aide. President
Nixon had the most serious of second-term problems
with the Watergate scandal, which resulted in Nixon's
Now President Bush has his scandal that comes from
the alleged outing of an undercover Central Intelligence
Agency operative. The courts will decide if Mr. Libby
is guilty as charged. Perhaps he is, perhaps he is not.
Time will tell.
While this is just another Washington scandal, I think
that this event with the office of the Vice President of
the United.States is also an indication that all is not well
President Reagan was s mart enough to fire some peo-
ple, apologize for getting America into the Iran-Contra
mess, and life went on. The Republicans forced President
Clinton's redemption in the worst way. They impeached
him which was very satisfying to the Republican right
wing. But, the Senate failed to convict Mr. Clinton whidh
satisfied the rest ofthe country. I consider it a draw, but
the docket was cleared and America moved on.
If President Bush will fire some people, to include his
Vice President, apologize to America for this mess then
his docket will be cleared and America will move on.
Will that happen? Time will tell.
America is a strong, resilient country. The American
people are strong, hardworking, imminently sensible
people. For many people out in the hinterlands, the outing'
of a CIA agent isn't very high on their list of concerns.

No one home when Telogia residence burs to the ground
When Benny Frank Faircloth's sister-in-law, Catherine Faircloth, looked out her window
last Wednesday night, flames were already shooting through the second roof that covered
the original roof of his singlewide mobile home and adjoining built-on rooms, according
to Sammy Hanna, Chief of the Hosford-Telogia Fire Department. Firefighters got the call
at 9:20 p.m. on Oct. 26. "It was gone when we got there," Hanna said of the structure,
located on Whitehead Road, off Hwy. 67. The cause of the blaze is unknown and is
being investigated by the State Fire Marshal's Office. Faircloth is staying with a friend
in Bristol and plans to make his home at his camp house in Kennedy Creek.

Two arrested during-traffic stop
with pills, but no prescription
Two people were arrested on several charges after a traffic stop
just before 7 p.m. Saturday in Calhoun County, after a deputy
noticed the driver was going about 50 mph in a 35 mph zone. The
vehicle did not have a visible tag.
After stopping the vehicle and waiting for the driver and his
passenger to hand over their identification, Deputy William Dalton
noticed the odor of alcohol and burnt marijuana coming from the
interior of the car.
When the driver, David Charles Payne, 47, got out of the car he
stated he had consumed two beers earlier in the day.
The deputy had the passenger, Elizabeth Katrine Smith Perkins,
21, step out of the car as well. When he asked if she was under the
influence of drugs or alcohol, she told him she had taken a Lortab
earlier in the day.
After asking if she had any illegal drugs in her possession, Per-
kins said she had several more Lortab in her purse and turned over
a bottle that contained four Vicodin and four unidentified pills. She
told him she did not have any prescriptions for the medication.
After getting the driver's consent to search the car. the deputy
located a clear plastic bag in the driver's side floorboard k ith % hat
appeared to be a small amount of marijuana and some rolling
During the search, Payne said he was cold and went to the trunk
to get his jacket. The deputy then had a look inside the jacket and
found one Lortab pill in the left pocket. Payne said his friend had
given him the pill and he did not have a prescription for it.-
Payne was charged with possession of a controlled substance,
possession of a prescription narcotic without a prescription, pos-
session of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug
paraphernalia. Perkins is charged with possession of a controlled
substance and possession of a prescription narcotic without a pre-

Text: Ephesians 6:10-18
Chinese Wit and Humor relates a
story about a thief caught stealing. He
was placed in stocks. His friend came
by wanting to know what he did.
The thief said, "I was just walk-
ing along the street when I saw on
the ground a grass rope. I made the
mistake of picking it up and taking it
home and so I got into this trouble."
"What is wrong with that?" inquired
"Well, there.was a very small ox
tied to the rope," admitted the thief.
The Bible says ihai Satan "de-
ceiveth the whole-world (KJV)." Je-
sus called Satan the father of lies. Sa-
tan entices us to sin to destroy us. He
is a master of deception; Satan makes
sin look attractive, but he doesn't tell
what the consequences are. He tries to
distort your view of God, His plans,
and His u rpu:e' for your life. We
often deceive ourselves attempting
to soothe our conscious so we can in-
dulge in sinful desires.
If our battle is with the father of
lies, we better arm ourselves with truth

is the belt that holds all of the other

overcome temptation, we must know

For instance, if you do riot know
the great depth, width, and height of
God's love, when a problem or trial
comes along, you will be tempted to
think that God is unfair or unl,: ing

While Florida black bears
never have attacked anyone
in Florida, Simek said people
should give bears ample -space
and never attempt to disturb, pet
or feed them.
"A bear that stays in an area
for long periods often reflects
more of a people problem than a
bear problem," Simek said.
FWC wildlife biologists re-
cently had to capture and relocate
three bears from Franklin and
Bay counties -- the biggest was
a near-record 500-pound male.
These bears were feeding in un-
secured garbage bins at a restau-
rant and school. FWC biologists
tagged and relocated the bears to
the Apalachicola National For-
est. So far this year, the FWC
received more than 1,300 calls
to report bears, including sight-
ings and roadkills.

Liberty County suffered a 38-8 defeat at the
hands of the playoff-bound Wewahitchka Gators in
high school football action October 28. Playing at
home, the Gators took advantage of early mistakes
by Liberty and several unsuccessful fourth-down
conversion attempts by the Bulldogs to score 26
Liberty's offense was unable to move the ball
against Wewa and Liberty's defense, playing in-
side their end of the field for most of the game,
was unable to stop the Gators' offense. Wewa
combined key passes With a strong running attack
that seemed to wear Liberty down as the game
An early first quarter turnover by Liberty inside
their own twenty-yard line gave Wewa an oppor-
tunity for a quick score that pushed the lead to two
touchdowns. On Liberty's next possession, the
Bulldogs failed to convert a fourth and short situ-
ation. Wewa capitalized on the good field position
and scored their third touchdown of the night.
The Gators ended their scoring in the final quar-
ter when a touchdown moved their lead to 38-0.
The lead of more than 35 points caused a running
clock for the remainder of the game. Libert\ \%as
able to score their only touchdown late in the
fourth w hen A.J. Marlo\ e broke a nice run for a

General Charlie Crist advised
Floridians affected by Hurricane
Wilma to use extra caution when
hiring workers to help clean up
the damage caused by the storm.
In particular, Crist warned those
who are victims of water dam-
age and downedtrees to be alert
for contractors who offer water
removal or cleanup services for
homes and property.
With many residents in the
southern portions of Florida
facing significant cleanup, it is
likely that legitimate contractors
will be mixed with those seeking
to profit at the expense of storm
victims. Consumers face the risk
that services will be offered by
those who are not licensed, that
clean-up services will be offered
at unconscionably high prices,
or that so-called "contractors"
will accept down payments but
will not do the work at all. Crist
said his office is prepared to in-
vestigate complaints of alleged
price gouging, and said citizens
should call his Price Gouging
Hotline at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM
(1-866-966-7226) to file such
"I fully support a business'
right to make a profit, but x\e.
cannot accept unjust profiteering.
especially when it puts an extra
burden on citizens who have just
endured a significant hurricane,"
said Crist. "Floridians affected
by Hurricane Wilma will need
all the help they can get, and we
will do our part by making sure
price gouging is not in the equa-
Crist provided a series of
guidelines for consumers to pro-
tect themselves from unscrupu-
lous contractors, including:
*Before signing a contract,
check the payment terms and
other pro\ isions carefully. Don't
pay a contractor in advance.
*Do not pay cash to home re-.
pair contractors or tree removal
*Require home repair contrac-
tors to obtain all necessary gov-
ernment licenses and permits,
rather than leaving that burden
on the conIlsumir.
S*Make sure contractors have
proper occupational licenses as
required by state law.
*Work only with reputable,
established businesses. Avoid
"contractors" who knock on
your door offering to fix your
roof or windows.. Try to obtain
more than one estimate for the
Crist also advised residents to
report suspected cases of price
gouging, which can carry stiff
penalties following a guberna-
torial declaration of a state of
emergency. _Investigators from
the Attorney General's Office
have been mobilized to crack
down on price gouging on items
that are in high demand follow-
ing a hurricane such as food, wa-
ter, hotels, ice, gasoline, lumber
Already this year the Attorney
General's Office has received
more than 4,300 complaints re-
lated to price gouging associated
with earlier Hurricanes Dennis,
Katrina and Rita, and has filed
two lawsuits against Tallahas-
see gas stations for alleged price
gouging during Katrina. In addi-
tion, the office has subpoenaed
four oil companies for records
associated with gas prices dur-
ing Dennis and Katrina.
During last year's record-set-
ting hurricane season, Crist's of-
fice received :8,911 complaints
through its price gouging hot-
line. Following last year's hurri-
canes, the office initiated 58 for-
mal investigations and filed 13
price gouging lawsuits against
hotels, generator businesses, tree
removal companies and other
businesses. To date the Attorney
General's Office has recovered
more than $939,000 in restitu-
tion for Florida consumers from
settlements and other resolu-
tions. Other investigations and
settlement negotiations are on-

The scoreboard tells the story as the Tigers end the first quarter behind, then tie with Holmes County in the third before adding two touchdowns to win in the final quarter.
Tigers pull ahead after third quarter tie to win 26-13
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
After a lackluster first half in
which their only score was called
back, the Blountstown Tigers
regrouped and came back to beat
Holmes County 26-13 to keep
their undefeated season intact.
At the half, "We talked and
made adjustments and told them
their season was fixing to be over
if they didn't do something dif-
ferent," said Coach Bobby Johns.
At that point, "they just decided
to play." He said, "These guys
are good enough that when they
decide to play with a little bit of
emotion, they can do it."
Holmes County opened the
scoring on their home field Oct.
28 on a five-yard touchdown run.
The extra-point kick was good to
start the scoring at 7-0. Holmes
County scored again in the sec-
ond quarter on a four-yard run.
The kick attempt failed. By half-
time, the Tigers had failed to get
any points on the board and their
host team lead by 13 points.
-"We played like we were
zombies in the first half," said
Johns. He said that while his
team remains undefeated despite
inconsistent performances on the
field, their record "is not going
to matter when we get to the
Whi-n the Tigers returned to
the field for the third quarter,

John Lockhart caught a 37-yard
touchdown pass from Michael
Guilford to give Blountstown
their first score of the night. The
extra point kick attempt was
no good and the score stood at
The Tigers' second score of
the night came with 4:33 left in
the third quarter when Lockhart
returned an interception 45 yards.
Jacob Williams' extra point kick
was good and the score was tied,
at 13-13 at the end of the third.
Chance Attaway scored on a
15-yard run in the fourth quarter
to break the tie and make the
score 19-13 after the kick attempt
With 3:11 left in the final quar-
ter, Arsenio Ivory scored on a six-
yard run. Williams' extra point
kick was good and the Tigers
ended the game at 26-13.
Johns gives some of the credit
for the halftime turnaround to Co-
rey Silcox. "He really stepped up
and led our team in the way they
TONY SHOEMAKE PHOTOS
needed to go," the coach said.
"He wanted to get more involved
in the second half and was moved
from strong safety to free safety
so they couldn't formation him
out of the play," he said. "He
was big in what happened in the
second half. I felt he showed
real good leadership in getting
everyone to step up and play in
the second half."
Attaway had 15 rushes for 76
yards and one touchdown. Guil-
ford had 12 rushes for 31 yards.
Ivory had nine rushes for 49 yards
and one TD. T.C. Copeland had
eight rushes for 43 yards. Guil-
ford was 6 for 7 for 162 yards and
one touchdown. His 60-yard TD
was called back on a penalty in
the first quarter.
Ryan Baker led the team de-
fensively with 14 tackles, fol-
lowed by Corey Silcox and John
Lockhart each with 13, Chaz
Johns with 11 and Chance At-
taway with 10.
The Tigers travel to Wewa for
their last regular season game,
where they will meet a familiar
face former BHS Coach Greg
Jordon, who is now heading up
the Wewa Gators.
:"Coach Jordon's done a great
job with these kids," Johns said
of the Wewa team, which is now
8-1. And, of course, he knows
the Blountstown Tigers well. "He
knows these kids and he knows
what they can do. He knows
what we like to do on offense and
defense. The key is that his kids
seem to play more emotionally
than ours," said Johns.
While the upcoming game
won't couni in the playoffs, it'll
be a big challenge for the Tigers
playing against one of their for-
mer coaches. "We really miss
him defensively," Johns said,
adding, "hopefully, that won't
cost us too badly Friday."
The biggest concern in this
week's game other than win-
ning will be preventing inju-
ries that could affect the playoffs,
The Tigers will travel to Wewa
for the Nov. 4 game, which starts
at 7:30 p.m. Central Time.

12-16, 2006 in Gainesville when
the University of Florida hosts
the event for the first time.
"The annual seminar, which
is presented at different loca-
tions around the nation, is the
original, longest-running and
best-known course of its kind,"
said Ron Schmidt, a professor
in UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences who is
coordinating the four-day event.
Leading national experts in the
ice cream business will speak at
the seminar, which will be held
at UF's food science and human
"For the small-business per-
son, the seminar will provide
detailed information on a wide
range of topics for success in the
ice cream business," Schmidt
said. "Designed by experienced
shop owners, the seminar will
help owners and store managers
learn what they need to start and
operate a viable business."
Topics include management
and marketing,, business expan-
sion, internal business controls,
store design and theft preven-
tion. There will also be presen-
tations on manufacturing with
batch freezers, ice cream cakes
and soft-serve products, and fla-
Dick Warren, who owns and
operates Four Seas Ice Cream in
Cape Cod, Mass., will be. a fea-
tured speaker at the seminar.
"After 45 years in the ice

QUINCY -,When it comes
to developing and introducing
new vegetable crops, the Uni-

Working together to introduce a
new crop to vegetable produc-
ers," said Dr. George Hochmuth,
Center Director at NFREC.
"The team consists of a crop
breeder, a production specialist,
and an extension agent, who is
interested in the end use of the

spectrum covered from variety

The UF/IFAS Edamame lines
were selected for pod yield,
disease resistance, determinant
growth habit, enhance flavor
and isoflavone chemistry. Iso-
flavone content, while benefi-
cial to our health, contributes
to the bitter off-taste commonly
found in standard soybean vari-
eties. Decreasing the bitter fla-
vor without eliminating the iso-
flavone content of the seed has
been a major selection focus.
Currently there are three ex-
perimental breeding lines in
breeder's seed increases at the
North Florida Research and Ed-
ucation Center at Quincy. Two
experimental lines are black-
seeded and one is white-seeded.
Over 100 additional breeding
lines are also being evaluated
for desirable flavor, seed yield,
hila color and pest resistance.
UF/IFAS NFREC plans to re-
lease several cultivars for com-
mercial production in the south-
ern U.S. in 2006.
Vegetable .soybeans are
growing increasingly popular
as a healthy snack or vegetable
because of the benefits associ-
ated with lowering cholesterol,
increasing dietary fiber and
contribution of natural isofla-
vones to our diets.
"This nutritious bean is great
tasting and good for you," said
Monica Brinkley, the UF/IFAS
Cooperative Extension Director
for Liberty County. "Edamame

Bulldogs on the road
The Liberty County High
School varsity volleyball team
is on the road to victory. The
Lady Bulldogs are having an
outstanding 2005 season with
19 wins and only 2 losses. The
Lady Bulldogs have played with
a lot of sweat and determination
to bring a victory title home.
The team is comprised of only
three seniors and nine juniors
who each bring a lot of talent
and skill to the court. The theme
for the Lady Bulldogs this year
has been "Dig Deep," in other
words don't give up, no matter
.what the score is just dig a lit-
tle deeper for the victory. That
motto has inspired them in many
of their games and is evident in
their season record. They were
undefeated in the first 8 games
they played and they have main-
tained being number one in the
district all season.
Some of the leading players in
kills, digs, saves, aces and blocks
are Julie Brock (senior), Natalie
Eubanks (senior), Candice Hol-
ley (junior), Lindsey nobles (ju-
nior), Dayna Ramsey (junior),
Briti Reed (junior) and Jacque-
line Sans (junior). The other
Steam members are Carmen Foran
(junior), Kaley Revell (junior),
Marissa Shuler .(junior), Kayla
Sumner (junior), Shorja West
(senior), and Kaycee Ammons
(junior). The team is coached by
Casi Peddie who in her second
year as head coach for the Lady
Bulldogs. These ladies have ex-
emplified hard work, determina-
tion and a great attitude both on
and off the court.
The Lady Bulldogs have an
amazing fan club. The fans have
shown their support for the team
whether they are at home or on
the road. The Lady Bulldogs
depend on the fans to help sup-
port them and encourage them
in the games. The Bulldog spirit
has helped these girls come out
on top with a victory, especial-
ly in their rival games against
Blountstown and Altha.
The road to victory began
with the district championship
game against West Gadsden
when the Bulldogs won in three
games. Next, LCHS hosted
Sneads in the quarter regional fi-
nals in which the Lady Bulldogs
took the victory once again. This
past Saturday, the Lady Bull-
dogs traveled to Cottondale to
face the Hornets. Although they
were off to a rocky start losing
the first game, the Lady Bulldogs
pulled another victory defeating
the Cottondale Hornets in the
next three games to clinch the
semi-regional game. The Lady
Bulldogs advance to the regional
game on Thursday,-Nov. 3 at 7
p.m.. (ET) in Bristol where they
will face Baker High. The state
championship game will be held
on Saturday, Nov. 12 (location
and time to be announced).
The Lady Bulldogs encour-
age all the fans to come and sup-
port them at home on Thursday
night. This is the first time our
volleyball team has made it to
this level in the playoffs. We are
proud of Coach Peddie and the
Lady Bulldog team in the suc-
cess they have had in this 2005
volleyball season! You are all
champions in our eyes! We wish
the Lady Bulldogs the best as
they continue on the road to vic-

tunity to build lines of commu-
nication with your children. Do
things as a family. Spend time
together-eat dinner as a family,
read together, play a game, at-
tend religious services. Show
that fun doesn't involve drugs.
Listen: Take a more active in-
terest in what is going on in your
child's life. Listen to their cares
and concerns. Know what they
are up to-what parties they are,
going to, with whom, and what
will be served or available.
Learn: Children today are so-
phisticated. In order to educate
your child about the danger of
drugs, you need to educate your-
"self first. In many cases, you
and your child can learn side by
side. Sit down together and learn
about the risks drugs pose.
Educate: Spend at least thirty
minutes with your kids every
month explaining with simple
facts how drugs can hurt young-
sters and destroy their dreams.
Care: Spend at least a few
minutes each day telling and
showing your children that you
care. Make sure they know you
care that they are drug-free. Ex-
plain to your child that you will
always be there for them- no
matter what happens. Make sure
that they know to come to you
first for help or information. The
extended family plays a major
role in influencing a child's life.
Be Aware: Look for the warn-
ing signs that your child may be
developing a substance-abuse
problem and get help before the
problem occurs. Your pediatri-,
cian can help.
Set Limits: By setting limits
on what is acceptable behavior,
you show your children you care
and help guide them to a safer,
drug-free future. Declare limits:
"This family doesn't do drugs.
This family doesn't hang around
people who do drugs." Enforce
these limits. If you say no drugs
or no drinking and driving, the
rule applies to parents, too. Be
Get Involved: Effective pre-
vention extends beyond the
home into the community. Get
involved in your community.
Ensure that your community's
streets, playgrounds, and schools
are safe and drug-free. Start or
join a community watch group
or community anti-drug coali-
tion. Become active in the PTA.
Get involved in your -church,
synagogue, or faith.
Lead: Young people are as
aware of what you do as much
as what you say. Don't just say
the right things; do the right
things. Set a good example. If
you, yourself, have a substance
abuse problem, get help.

mental drink would be the best
choice for you. You should
choose one of the many drinks
available depending on your
lactose tolerance, how much fat
your body can handle and how
many additional calories you
need. If you don't need extra cal-
ories and protein, but only extra
amounts of one or more vitamins
and minerals, then a pill may be
better for you. Either of these
options is considered a "supple-
ment" to healthy eating. Neither
can replace all the nutrients and
beneficial substances you get
from eating balanced, mostly
Q: Can someone who must
eat gluten-free foods follow a
diet that lowers a person's can-
cer risk, too?
A: Yes. A gluten-free diet,
specifically designed for people
with celiac disease, whose diges-
tive tract is damaged by foods
containing gluten, can also meet
a variety of other health con-
cerns, like lowering cancer risk.
If you are unsure how to create
a gluten-free diet that does this,
you can talk to a registered dieti-
tian or a doctor with experience
treating celiac patients. .There
are also reputable websites and
books that offer support, up-to-
date information and recipes. In
addition to avoiding tobacco, the
following diet and lifestyle prin-
- ciples are the main ones that will
lower cancer risk for everyone,
including celiac patients: focus
your meals around vegetables,
fruits, whole. grains and beans;
maintain a healthy weight and
stay physically active; limit
fat, alcohol and sodium; and
choose mostly beans, poultry,
or seafood for protein instead
of large amounts of red meat.
None of these principles are in
conflict with a gluten-free diet.
However, restrictions on eating
-gluten make it much more diffi-
cult for celiac patients to eat the
recommended three ser\ ings of
whole grains a day. Wheat (and
its many derivatives), barley and
rye contain gluten. Oats are glu-
ten-free, but often contaminated
with gluten during processing,
so this grain may be best avoid-
ed, too. Rice and corn, including
popcorn and 100 percent corn-
meal, are gluten-free and safe to
eat. Although classified as fruits,
quinoa and buckwheat (kasha)
are grain-like and gluten-free
and can bring variety to a celiac
patient's diet. Amaranth is an-
other safe option, although not
technically a grain. The great-
est problem for someone who
must avoid gluten is the hidden
gluten in baked and processed
foods and commercially-pre-
pared foods found in restaurants
and grocery stores. If you find
it too difficult to eat the recom-
mended daily servings of whole
grains, at least strive to follow
- the other principles. Because un-
treated celiac disease can lead to
lymphoma of the small intestine,
you shouldn't risk eating whole
grains that may be tainted with

Brown patch disease can be common in the fall
After a busy season of fight-
ing weeds and other problems
in the lawn, the next disorder
to look for will be a common
fungal disease called brown
patch. It is caused by the
fungus Rhizoctonia solani,
and affects all warm-season
turfgrasses, especially St. Au-
gustinegrass and zoysiagrass.
Brown patch usually ap-
pears as somewhat circu-
lar brown areas in the lawn.
These patches usually start
as six to twelve inch diameter
circles that turn yellow and
then reddish-brown, brown,.
or straw-colored as the leaves
start to die. Patches will fre-
quently merge and may ex-
pand to several feet in diam-
eter, forming irregular dead
The fungus is most active
along the border of the patch

observed When environmental con-

susceptible turfgrasses. The
severity of the disease can be
somewhat controlled by fol-
lowing good lawn manage-
ment practices. Avoid heavy
applications of nitrogen fer-
tilizer during the potential

ods-spring and fall. Irrigate
only when necessary and do
so only in the early morning
hours (between 2 a.m. and
8 a.m.) when dew is already
present. And, since mow-
ers can spread this disease,
mow diseased areas last, and
wash the turf clippings off the
mower before proceeding to
the next site.
A number of fungicides
are recommended for brown
'patch control including those
that contain azoxystrobin,

Since this disease normally
occurs when the turfgrass is
not growing very rapidly, re-
covery may be very slow. The
fungicides simply stop the dis-
ease from spreading; they do
not promote turfgrass growth.
This is why it may be benefi-
cial to apply these fungicides
prior to disease development,

NWFWMD embarks on efforts to update flood hazard mapping
from Northwest Florida
Water Management District
The Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency's (FEMA)
flood hazard maps are one of the
essential tools for flood mitiga-
tion in the United States. Unfor-
tunately, many of these maps
have become outdated, espe-
cially in high growth and devel-
opment areas including Florida.
FEMA has established a broad
goal of modernizing flood hazard
maps nationwide. In lieu of the
destructive hurricanes that have
swept over the state since 2004,
accurate flood hazard maps are
especially important for identi-
fication of floodplain and flood
The Northwest Florida Water
Management District was des-
ignated by FEMA in December
2002 as a Cooperating Techni-
cal Partner (CTP) for the State
of Florida in Northwest Florida.
As a CTP, the NWFWMD has
begun to work collaboratively
with FEMA to create and main-
tain accurate, up-to-date flood
hazard data for the communi-
ties served in Northwest Florida.
This includes the 16 county ar-
eas of Bay, Calhoun, Escambia,
Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Hol-
mes, Jackson, Leon, Liberty,
Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Wakulla,
Walton and Washington counties-
and the western n most portion of
Jefferson County. Floodplain
management and protection is
a primary area of responsibil-
ity and a priority as part of the
The FEMA Map Modern-
ization program "Map Mod",
builds upon recommendations
of the Technical Mapping Advi-
sory Council articulated-in 2000.
Congress approved a $1 billion
dollar investment to bring flood
hazard maps up-to-date nation-
wide over a 5-year period. The
NWFWMD vision for the Map
Modernization initiative is to
provide more accurate and com-
plete flood hazard information
for counties and communities
within the district. As part of
this work, the NWFWMD has
embarked in an endeavor to map
and convert flood insurance rate
maps (FIRMs) into a digital for-
mat covering all 16 counties in
the NWFWMD. This includes
the collection of new, accurate
elevation data, new flood stud-
ies, and will result in updated
digital flood insurance rate map
panels (DFIRMs) meeting FE-
MA's latest multi-hazard flood
map modernization standards.
Efforts through other water re-
sources and emergency man-
agement programs by the local
government, district, state and
federal programs are also under
way to obtain more accurate and
detailed elevation imagery in a
The digital component of the
new maps is a key because they
are easily accessed by the pub-
lic and displayed on the web.
The web displays are capable of
showing actual earth images and
topography with the flood zones
and flood hazard information
as map overlays. Residents and
property owners will be able to
view the areas mapped as flood
hazard zones with a very clear
aerial image of the earth along
with the structures they live in.
The web based digital flood maps
will also allow for easy updates
as development changes occur.
With the updated DFIRMs and
the district's ongoing emphasis
on protection and acquisition of

the CTP program is to leverage
available funding to obtain more
and better multi-hazard mapping
with the available resources.
Currently, the FEMA Regional
