by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
"There's no magic to it just a lot of
hard work," said Greg Jones, assistant
school superintendent for Calhoun County
in response to last week's announcement
from the Department of Education (DOE)
that the county leads the state in graduation
rates with a remarkable 94.3 percent.
He credits "good people, caring teach-
ers and support staff" with propelling
the school district to the top of the list
in graduation rates among the state's 67
Brevard County followed Calhoun
County with a 91.5 percent rate. Taking
third place on the list was Gulf County
with a rate of 91.4 percent. Liberty County
came in fourth statewide with a 90.4%

graduation rate. Gadsden County fell to
the bottom of the list with 45.9 percent.
Jones attributes his county's high suc-
cess rate to a conscientious staff. "We
have people who care, have a good work
ethic and put forth a lot of energy," he
said. "Everybody tries to support them in
everything they do." He adds, "Without
good students and parents, we couldn't
do it."
Jones says Calhoun County teachers
take accountability very seriously. "We do
a lot of tracking of students' test scores and
grades. We keep very good individualized
records on kids to see where they're weak
and what kind of remediation they need."
And, he added, "Teachers don't stop when
they find a student's weaknesses, they also

try to pinpoint why they're weak."
The work begins a long time before
students get to high school. Teachers are
on the lookout for warning signs in the
elementary grades for problems that might
hinder a student's academic growth. "We
try to see if there's a learning problem, and
if there is, we try a different suategy." He
notes, "If a student can't read by fourth
grade, how can they do anything else?
Everything hinges on reading."
While noting "it's nice to be fourth out
of 67," Liberty County School Superin-
tendent David Summers said he hopes to
keep the school system's graduation rate
on the increase.

Woman and child hospitalized after car flips and burns

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
An Altha woman and her five-year-old son
were taken by emergency helicopter to a hospital
after their vehicle went out of control, Hlipped
over and burned Friday morning.
Tiffany Byrd was driving south on County
Road 275 around 7:50 a.m., just south of Shu-
man Ferry Road, when she went off the pavement
while entering a curve, according to FHP Trooper
Philip Spaziante.
"Instead of making the curve, she went
straight," the trooper said. Byrd's 2003 Pontiac
Sunfire first went onto the southbound shoulder.
When Byrd tried to steer back on the road, the car
went across both lanes, began skidding sideways
and ran onto the northbound shoulder, where it
hit a mailbox. The Pontiac went into the ditch

A firefighter hoses down the burning wreckage after last week's

and struck a culvert, which propelled the car into
the air, causing it to flip over end-to-end before
hitting the ground right-side up.
A passing motorist pulled the little boy out of
the front passenger's side of the wrecked vehicle.
The trooper said he did not know how the mother
got out. Soon after the wreck, the vehicle caught
fire and burned completely.
Byrd and her son were taken to Sacred Heart
Hospital, where they were treated and later
released after suffering "some pretty nasty inju-
ries," according to the trooper.
Spaziante said it appeared speed was a factor
in the accident, noting that the car traveled 548
feet after leaving the road until it crashed. Byrd
was not wearing a seatbelt.
Charges are pending.

Cocaine & customer

list found following

controlled drug buy

at Blountstown apt.
Two people were arrested on crack cocaine
charges after the Calhoun County Sheriff's
Department conducted a drug sting last Friday
in Blountstown by sending someone in to make
a controlled buy with marked money.
After making arrangements to meet George
Huie at a Blountstown apartment, the under-
cover operative exchanged $200 for three piec-
es of crack cocaine, according to a report from
the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department.
When investigators moved in to arrest Huie
he attempted to flee the apartment. After his
arrest, deputies found $200 in cash that had
been hidden under a clump of dirt about a foot
from where Huie was taken into custody.
Two other people at Huie's residence were
detained while deputies secured a search war-
rant and returned to check the premises as well
as the adjoining apartment. When they were
searched, deputies discovered one piece of
crack cocaine hidden in the left shoe worn by
Kathy Fortner.
Two baggies one holding two pieces of
crack cocaine and the other containing ap-
proximately a half gram of cocaine in powder
form were discovered inside a window sill
in Huie's apartment, Investigators found a safe
with $340 in bills and assorted change. Also
discovered at the scene was a sheet of paper
believed to be a customer list which showed
names and dollar amounts, according to the
sheriff's department arrest report.
Because Huie's residence is near a church at
the corner of Canal Lane and River Street, he
was charged with sale of cocaine within 1,000
feet of a place of worship and possession of
cocaine with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of
a place of worship.

Charity victim of theft

from Helping Hands Thrift Store
SHelping Hands Thrift. Store, located at 16842
NE Pear Street, has once again become the tar-
get of thieves. Only this time, it appears the thefts
may be the work of other thrift stores.
Sunday afternoon, Nov. 20, a citizen was driv-
ing by the store and saw a man loading a dresser
onto a handcart and pushing it into a nearby store.
While several days ago, a customer came into the
store to report that she had dropped donations off
at our facility over the weekend only to find them
for sale at yet another local thrift store. When she
inquired where the proprietor obtained the items,
he indicated that a woman had delivered them to
We are the only non-profit thrift store in

Deputies foil drop-off

plans at Calhoun Jail
A Calhoun County jail inmate's desire for some tobacco, a
lighter and something strong to drink has led to the arrest of the
man who tried to smuggle the items in to him last week.
While monitoring a phone conversation between inmate
Jonathan Barton and his girlfriend, a jailer heard the two dis-
cussing how the items could be delivered to him.
Barton discussed how Buddy Jon Kriegbaum, who he called
"Uncle Bud," was going to ride his bike up State Road 20, turn
into the east driveway at the jail and leave the items in an area
where jail trustees washed patrol cars, according to a report
from the sheriff's department.
The couple discussed the plan in a series of three phone calls
that day. When Barton's girlfriend argued that she did not want
to have any part in the drop off, Barton told her to make sure
it got done, the report said.
Deputies were watching when Kriegbaum rode up on a bike
and placed a brown paper bag on the ground by a wash rack in
the parking area used by trustees to clean cars. Once Kriegbaum
dropped the bag he was arrested.
Found inside the bag was some rolling tobacco, a lighter
and a 20 ounce Mountain Dew bottle containing an alcoholic
Kriegbaum was charged with introduction of contraband
into a county facility.

Woman and 2-year-old involved in rollover

A Mexico Beach woman and her two-year-
old son escaped with only minor injuries after
their sports utility vehicle overturned Tuesday
morning on Hwy. 71, about three miles south of
Blountstown. Kristi Robinson, 34, was traveling
north around 8:20 a.m. when she lost control of
her 1997 Ford Explorer, according to FHP Cpl.
Jason Britt. The vehicle drove onto the east
shoulder of the road until Robinson steered
left to bring it back on the pavement. The
SUV then began rotating in a counterclockwise

direction and crossed both lanes of the road
before overturning in the west ditch. Robinson
was wearing a seatbelt, but was cited for
not using a child restraint for her son, who
was sitting in a'booster seat. Both were
taken to the emergency room at Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital where they were treated and
released. Robinson had a large laceration on
her lower leg ard her child had several bumps
and bruises. She was charged with careless

she failed to return the 1997
Buick Skylark to its owner, Char-
lotte L. Miley.
Miley said she loaned the car
to Wanda Holland Taylor after
she agreed to bring it back in
about 30 minutes, according to
the report filed with the Calhoun

around 8:30 p.m. Nov. 18. When
Miley who was staying at
Taylor's home on NW Bailey
Cemetery Road got ready
to leave the next morning, she
realized her car had not been re-
turned. She got someone to pick
her up and take her to her Jackson
County residence and returned
later in the day but could not find
anyone home.
About 20 minutes after filing
a complaint with the sheriff's
department, Miley reported that
she had discovered her missing

car traveling ahead of her on State
Road 71.
She followed as the car turned
onto County Road 73-B. A
deputy en route caught up with
the car and saw the driver make
an aggressive eastbound turn onto
County Road 274 and accelerate
rapidly. The vehicle was stopped
and when Taylor, who was be-
hind the wheel of the stolen car,
got out she began to scream and
pull away from the deputy. She
continued to resist arrest until the
officer had to restrain her on the
ground, according to the arrest
When the deputy told her to
stand up, Taylor started to do so
but suddenly went limp. Taylor's
husband, who was a passenger in
the stolen car, said she had a his-
tory of seizures and an ambulance
was called. A few seconds later,
Taylor was able to recognize the
officer and was helped into the
rear of the patrol car. She de-
clined medical treatment.
During a search of the stolen
car, deputies found two pieces of
crack cocaine in the front passen-
ger seat. Taylor began screaming
and said the cocaine belonged to
her and Miley and stated that her
husband had no knowledge that
the cocaine was in the car.
Taylor was taken into custody
and charged with auto theft, re-
sisting arrest with violence and
possession of crack cocaine.
Deputies learned that her driver's
license had been revoked due to
her medical condition.
Miley's vehicle was turned
over-to her at the scene. -

Fit To Ride: 4-H ATV Safety Day Camp

Tragically, a young Bay
County woman was killed while
riding an ATV last week. ATVs
.are responsible fof more than'
36,000 injuries and 100 deaths
in children ages 8-16 each year.
An ATV crash is 12 times more:
likely to kill a child than a bi-
cycle crash. The number of ATV
related injuries per year doubled
between 1993 and 2001, and the
injury and death rates are high-
est among riders under 16. So
what's a parent to do?
Many families in our county
enjoy riding ATVs, but do you
know the safety rules? If you're
not sure, then make plans to at-

tend the 4-H ATV Day Camp. This
camp is open to all youth, ages 8-
16 and will be held: on Tuesday,
Dec. 20, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The group from Liberty County
\ ill meet at the Veterans Memorial
Civic Center and will be transport-
ed to and from'the Jackson County
Ag Complex Auditorium. During
this camp. youth will learn the
safe way to have fun with ATVs.
At the end of the day, the\ will re-
ceive their own ATV helmet. car-
bineer compass. rider handbook.
and other goodies.
The registration fee is $10
and the deadline to sign up is
Dec. 15. .

To register, you can stop by the
Extension Office, located in the
Veterans Memorial Civic Center.
This program is made possible
by a grant from the National 4-H
Council, which is sponsored in
part by Honda.

A season of thanks, a time to give

As Americans across the na-
tion gather with family and
friends to celebrate the Thanks-
giving holiday, we are reminded
of the many things for which we
are thankful. America is a na-
tion of liberty, justice and free-
dom, and we are blessed to live
in a nation which stands alone
in the world as a beacon of de-
mocracy. This is also the time
of year when we recognize and
appreciate those things which
have led to the betterment of
our lives, our communities and
our country. As a member of
Congress, one of my goals is to
work for those policies that will
provide for the overall better-
ment of North Florida and the
nation as a whole.
One of the ways Congress
outlines our country's priorities
and values is through our fed-
eral government's budget. Un-
fortunately, many in Congress
have lost sight of this purpose
with the support of a budget that
does not represent the ideals our
country holds dear. Last week,
Congress passed a budget rec-
onciliation bill that illustrates
our broken budget process and
how we are neglecting our duty
to provide for the betterment of
our citizens. Under the guise of
fiscal responsibility, this pack-
age cuts approximately $50 bil-
lion from important government
programs while increasing our
deficit by about $6 billion. This
reconciliation bill makes fund-
ing cuts in vital programs such
as Medicaid, food stamps, and
student loans.
While I have been a staunch
advocate for fiscal restraint and
balancing our government's
books, I do not think we should
do so on the backs of those that
need our help the most. We
must ask ourselves-do we want
to make it more difficult for our
children to receive health insur-
ance? Do we want to make it
harder for our students to go to
college? Do we want to pre-
vent more middle class families
from receiving tax credits they
depend on to make ends meet?
I believe most Americans. would
agree that these are steps we do
not want to take in the name of
fiscal responsibility.
However, it is very appar-
ent that something must be
done about our government's
worsening financial situation
and ballooning national debt.
Last month, our national debt
eclipsed the $8 trillion mark,
and it's our children and grand-
children who will be saddled
with this crushing burden. If
every single person in America,
including babies born today,
wrote a check to pay off this
astronomical figure, each check
would-be written to the tune of
Our huge national debt
comes as no surprise. In the last
five years, there has been a 30
percent increase in government


fromU.S.Rep.Alln oy

spending. Congress needs to
create a budget that makes our
government smaller and more
effective and ends our bad hab-
it of spending what we do not
have. Additionally, we must
have government leaders who
know how to balance our books
by looking at both the revenue
and spending sides of the equa-
tion, not just one or the other.
Congress needs to lay all of our
options on the table and make
the tough choices that will get
our fiscal house in order. This

reconciliation bill does none of
these things.
As a country we have a
strong and proud heritage, but
we also have a responsibility
to our forefathers who passed
on these rights and privileges.
More importantly, we owe noth-
ing less than that same sense of
citizenship and dedication to
future generations. Congress
cannot continue to irresponsibly
manage the future of our chil-
dren, our grandchildren and our
country through the support of a

budget that fails to end our prac-
tice of deficit spending.
Our forefathers had the ener-
gy and foresight to provide our
country with the tools to pros-
per, and it is my hope that Con-
gress will continue this tradi-
tion by creating a fiscally sound
budget that also provides for the
betterment of our nation and its
citizens. This holiday season,
as we gather around the din-
ner table with our loved ones, I
hope my fellow Floridians will
use this opportunity to recog-
nize where our nation stands
today and how we can come to-
gether to make our country even
stronger in the future.

The helpful place.

Text Ephesians 6:10-18.
The Otterbein Teacher tells a story
about two children counting their pen-
nies. Jane said, "I have five pennies."
Mary said, "I have ten pennies."
Jane observed, "You don't have
ten pennies, you only have five."
Mary explained, "My father said
he would give me five cents tonight,
and so I have ten cents."
Mary was sure of what she hoped
for and certain of what she did not see.
Hebrews 11:1 says that is the defini-
.tion of faith. Paul tells us that we need
to take up the shield of faith whenever
fighting temptation.
As Paul described the armor, he
probably had a picture of the Roman
soldier in his mind. The sight of a Ro-
man soldier would have been very fa-
miliar in Paul's day.
The Roman shield was large
enough for the soldier to hide be-
hind. Barnes says, "The idea is, that
as the shield covered or.protected the
other parts of the armor, so faith has
a similar importance in the Christian
virtues." Faith is your defense against
the fiery darts of Satan.
Satan cannot force the believer in
Christ to do anything that he or she
doesn't want to do, But he can entice

Thanksgiving Click It orTicket Florida

Law enforcement agencies
throughout the state are par-
ticipating in the Thanksgiv-
ing Click It or Ticket Florida
holiday campaign to heighten

safety belt use awareness dur-
ing one of the busiest travel
times in the U.S. The mobiliza-
tion conducted by the Florida
Highway Patrol and local law
enforcement agencies through-
out Florida will run from Nov-.
18 to Nov. 30 to coincide with
the Thanksgiving holiday.
The National Highway

end. Last year in Florida alone,
during, the same 13 day cam-
paign period, 77 people died in
motor vehicle related crashes,,
over half of these individuals
were not using safety belts.
"It is important that motor-
ists understand the importance
of buckling up every time they
get into their vehicle," said
Carla Sims, Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation Traf-
fic Safety Administrator. "The
simplest and most effective ac-
tion a motor vehicle driver or
occupant can take to save their
life is to spend a few seconds
buckling their safety belt."

Law enforcement officers
throughout Florida are doing a
great job saving lives through
safety belt enforcement.
The Thanksgiving holiday
kicks off one of the nation's
busiest travel seasons of the
year so law enforcement
agencies will be increasing
their visibility and will have
more patrol units out on the
road protecting motorists:
"Law enforcement agen-
cies in Florida enforce the
safety belt law every day,"
said Traffic Safety Adminis-
trator Sims. "However, \\ ith
the holiday season fast ap-
proaching, this Thanksgiv-

mobilization brings a much
needed awareness to the im-
portance of using your safety
belt during a time of the year
that often has a higher traffic
related death rate."
Law enforcement agencies
across the state, with support
from the Florida Department
of Transportation, are joining
together to remind everyone
this holiday season to click it

Beta-carotene is an important
member of a group of phytonu-
trients called carotenoids.
For example, carotenoids
appear to decrease the risk of
age-related loss of vision. Fla-
vonoids, phtronitrients found
in berries, mitigate nerve cell
deterioration. And there are a
\ ide range of other compound's
that appear to be antioxidants.
helping fend off internal attacks
in our bodies by oxygen free
An Agricultural Research
Service scientist in California
has found a way to pinpoint just
how good pumpkin really is for
you, by developing a simple,
fast and environmentally friend-
ly way to measure the beta-car-
otene and other carotenoids in
Her method combines two-
processes with tongue-tangling
names (supercritical fluid ex-
traction and reversed-phase liq-
uid chromatography) to draw
out, identify and measure the.
beneficial compounds. This
combination of techniques is
less labor-intensive than labora-
tory methods now used, it gives
results quicker, and it doesn't re-
quire harsh chemicals that create
a disposal problem.
So what exactly are carot-
enoids, anyway?
Carotenoids are natural plant
compounds that give pumpkins
and carrots their orange hues
(and also the deep reds of toma-
toes). Some of these compounds
are thought to help reduce the
incidence of cataracts, cardio-
vascular disease and even cer-
tain types of cancer. While beta-
carotene is the most-studied
of these carotenoids, there are
lots of others-such as crypto-
xanthin, lutein and lycopene--
whose secrets we're just begin-
ning to crack.

about beta-carotene that some of
its less familiar cousinin" there
are still questions about beta-
carotene, too. For example, we
still don't know all the steps in
the process that our bodies use
to absorb beta-carotene and turn
it into vitamin A.
But ARS scientists are add-
ing to the available information
in that area, too. At Beltsville,
Md., ARS scientists have used
markers called isotopes to "tag"
carotenoids from kale, which
makes it possible for them to
monitor the carotenoids' absorp-
tion in the body after the kale
is eaten. They've specifically
tracked not only- beta-carotene,
but also lutein, a major yellow
pigment of corn and leafy green
vegetables. Lutein is believed to
protect the human retina's mac-
;ular region, which means it can
help reduce your risk of macular '
degeneration, the most common '
age-related cause of blindness.
The ARS researchers at Belts-
ville have found that the best
lutein absorbers in the body are.l
also the best beta-carotene ab-
sorbers, w which suggests there are !
similarities in how the body pro-
cesses these two carotenoids.
Pumpkins' high carotenoid
content could play a much big-
ger role than just assuaging any :
guilty feelings we may have
about taking that second piece
of pumpkin pie. In parts of Af-
rica, Southeast Asia, and Central
and South America, vitamin A
deficiency. is the leading cause
,of preventable blindness and a
major cause of infant deaths.
Nutrition programs in those
areas. have been encouraging
consumption of fresh mangoes,
which are also high in beta-
carotene. But those mangos are
only available as a fresh prod-
uct in spring and summer, they
don't ship well and they have a
relatively short shelf life.
On the other hand, pumpkin.
harvested in fall and early .win-
ter, could help fill an important
nutrition.gap when the mangoes
are out.of season; they store well;
they don't require refrigeration,
and they're easy to grow.
The ARS scientists say their
new techniques for measuring
beta-carotene and other carot-
enoids in pumpkin could speed
up development of new, super-
good-for-you pumpkins here,
and in the rest of the world. In
the meantime. let's have another
cup of coffee-and let's have
another piece of pie!







Consumers urged to check

out charities before donating

from the Florida Department ofAgri-
culture and Consumer Services
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging consumers to
take the time to investigate char-
itable organizations before mak-
ing any donations. There were
some charity scams during re-
cent hurricane relief efforts and
the holiday season is one of the
busiest for charities, many col-
lecting about half their annual
donations between Thanksgiv-
ing and New Year's Day.
"There are more than 10,000
charities and professional so-
licitors registered with the De-
partment and it's important
that consumers find out all they
can about an organization be-
fore making any contributions,"
Bronson said. "They can find
out not only whether a charity is
properly registered, but also how
it spends the donations."
Florida law requires most
charities to register with the De-
partment and provide financial
information about income and
expenditures, including how
much is used for fundraising and
administrative costs and how
much actually goes to program
services. As of Nov. 1, there were
-10,937 charities and profession-
al solicitors registered with the
Department. The Department
does not endorse any charity and
is prohibited from dictating how
much a charity spends on pro-
gram services, but the financial
information enables consum-
ers to make educated decisions

about where to contribute.
"People can take steps to
make sure a charity is properly
registered but they shouldn't stop
there," Bronson said. "They can
use their financial information
we provide to determine whether
they think a charity is using do-
nations in a prudent manner."
Bronson also provided the
following tips to consider when
deciding whether to donate to an
*Don't judge an organiza-
tion based on an impressive -
sounding name. Find out what it
actually does.
*Be wary of emotional appeals
and organizations that have only
vague plans for spending the
funds they collect.
*Never give cash. Write a
check payable only to an organi-
zation not an individual.
*Be wary of organization that
offer to send a "runner" to pick
up your donation. Reputable
charities are willing to wait for
your contribution.
*Consumers have the right to
ask for an organization's finan-
cial report and its federal tax
identification number, the latter
of which you'll need to claim
your contribution as a tax deduc-
: *Ask the organization to send
you written information about
its activities.
*If an organization is not reg-
istered, contact the Department.
Up-to-date information on
charities is also available by

calling the hotline or visiting the
Division of Consumer Services
Web site at www.800helpfla.
com. People who have addition-
al questions or want to report a
potential scam should call the
department's hotline.

Tigers come from behind to beat Vernon

35-21 with trio of 4th quarter touchdowns

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Blountstown took a real come-from-behind win in an
exciting match-up Friday night at-Bowles Field when they
hosted Vernon in the regional semifinals of the Class 2B
Football Championship.
The Tigers ended the night with a 35-21 victory that
left fans on the edge of their seats as they waited for the
home team to even the score after Vernon led by seven
points at the end of the third quarter.
The Tigers sealed the deal with three fourth-quarter
touchdowns. The first came on a 20-yard reception from
Michael Guilford to Chance Attaway, the second was on
a 35-yard run by Chase Cox and the third came with 52
seconds left in the game on a 25-yard run by Attaway.
Jacob Williams kicked in the extra point after each
'It was quite a comeback," said BHS head coach Bobby
Johns. "Until that score in the third quarter when it was
21-14, things didn't look very good," he said. "We needed
a break and were finally able to get a couple of inside runs
on them and hit a counter option."
The coach said, "We were only one touchdown at the
half and didn' t panic." At halftime he told the team, "You
have one half left to decide whether you want to keep
playing or not:'
The night's scoring opened with a 55-yard touchdown
pass by Vernon and an extra-point kick. The Tigers an-
swered with seven points of their own after a 13-yard run
by Guilford followed by a PAT by Williams to end the
first quarter 7-7.
Vernon scored on a two-yard run in the second quarter,
followed by the extra point kick to pull ahead 14-7.
With the third quarter under way, Vernon scored on a
31-yard catch. The kick was good and their lead stretched
out to 21-7. With 58 seconds left in the quarter, Attaway
scored on a 25-yard run for the Tigers. Williams' PAT
was good and the score started to level out a bit as the
board read 21-14 as the Tigers headed in for a spectacular
fo.unh quarter finish.
"'We gave up a big play the first time they gave us the
football," Johns said. "To our kids' credit, we came back
to score right at the end of the first quarter."
Attaway had 16 carries for 92 yards and two touch-
downs, with one catch for 20 yards and a.TD. Guilford
had 17 carries for 36 yards and one TD, 84 yards passing
and one TD. Arsenio Ivory had six carries for 24 yards
and Titus Overholt had three carries for 64 yards.
Chase Cox and Titus Overholt had one interception
Johns said lineman Jarrod Waldron performed the best
he has all season and graded out at 80%.
Defensively, Jamie Willis led all tacklers with 15 tackles
and one sack while Ryan Baker had 14 tackles, two sacks
and two tackles for loss. Chaz Johns had 14 tackles while
Corey Silcox and Josh Savall had 10 each.
The Tigers are spending plenty of time on the practice
field this week in preparation for Friday's game with Trin-

"We play the number one team in the state Friday,"
said Johns. While Trinity Catholic has topped the rank-
ings for 2B teams, the Blountstown Tigers have been
right behind them in the number two spot. Johns plans to
change that ranking this week as his team bears down on
a state championship.
"I know these guys are good and are supposed to be
the best team around," he said, but admitted: "It kind of
gets under your skin a little bit." Johns points out that his
team has won 29 out of the lat 3(1 ,tbiIll ,aii' le i1::, 've

played. "I'd think people might want to give us a little
bit of respect," he said.
The winner of Friday's game will play for the state
championship on Dec. 3.

FSU researcher works to improve breast-cancer diagnostic tools

as patients would like for the
word "doctor" to mean "all-
knowing," unfortunately, this
will never be the case. Human
fallibility on the part of medical
professionals sometimes leads
to devastating misdiagnoses that
can result in additional suffering,
or even death, for their patients.
But there is hope for better,
more accurate medical diagno-
ses through the development of
new technologies, and one Flori-
da State University researcher is
putting her engineering knowl-
edge to work to develop tools
for more accurately diagnosing
Breast cancer.
Anke Meyer-Baese is an as-
sistant professor of electrical
and computer engineering at
the Florida A&M University-
FSU College of Engineering.
Her work focuses on electrical
and computer engineering, with
a specialization in methods of
artificial intelligence that can be
applied to medical imaging.
Meyer-Baese recently became
the first College of Engineer-
ing faculty member to receive a
National Institutes of Health Ca-
reer Award, which comes with
$695,000 in research funding.
With the money, she will lead
a five-year project to give doc-
tors a new tool to better diagnose
breast cancer. The aggressive
disease claims the lives of more
than 40,000 American women
each year so a diagnostic tool
that will allow patients to begin
- a course of treatment as early as
possibleis urgently needed.
Meyer-Baese hopes to utilize
magnetic resonance imaging
(MRI) which holds promise
in better detection of hard-to-
find cases of breast cancer to
provide doctors with the more
critical eyes of a computer. De-
spite the incredible potential of
MRI technology, which cranks

out at least 200 scans for a single
patient, the sheer volume of im-
ages can be daunting for human
eyes to evaluate. Meyer-Baese is
developing computer software
to mimic the way a radiologist
analyzes all of that information

- and to do it better and faster.
"The outcome of the pro-
posed research is expected to
have substantial implications in
health care by contributing to
the improved diagnosis of inde-
terminate breast lesions by non-

Crime. Stoppers is a nonprofit organization that promotes a partnership between the media, law enforcement and
the community. Big Bend Crime Stoppers was started more than twenty years ago by a group of concerned citizens
and the Tallahassee Police Department, covering all six counties of the Big Bend: Franklin, Gadsden, Jefferson,
Liberty, Leon and Wakulla.

People in the community with information about a crime can call our number at 891-HELP or toll free at 1-866-979-
0922. These calls are not recorded and we do not use Caller ID. When information is given the caller receives a
code number, which the caller can then use to receive information on the tip. If an arrest is made based on infor-
mation provided by the caller, the caller is eligible for a reward. The board of directors, made up of citizens, votes
on the reward amount at the monthly board meeting. The caller goes to the drive-thru of a designated bank and
provides the teller the code number. The teller then sends out cash. WE NEVER KNOW THE IDENTITY OF THE

Creating vegetative screens

Our yards are great places
to relax and enjoy outdoor
activities. And very much
like our houses, landscapes
typically have walls, or screens,
which help to define spaces,
frame views, reduce noise and
block unwanted sights.
One main, purpose for
screening is to provide privacy.
One may screen a small,
intimate area or an entire yard.
In addition to screening out
neighbors orpassers-by, screens
can be used as barriers for other
people's pets or to block .the
view of air conditioners and
garbage cans.
Screens can be made from a
variety of materials including
block, stone, brick, wood or
living plants. Fences provide
an immediate screen and
usually occupy little space.
But using plants to create a
vegetative screen can offer

by Theresa Friday,
Extension Horticultural
Agent, Santa Rosa County

several advantages.
Vegetative screens can be
just as functional as fences
but can also provide months
of flowering beauty. They can
also provide lots of greenery
which can keep your yard and
home shaded and cool during
the warm summer months.
They can also attract wildlife,
becoming a nesting place for
birds or a source of food for
butterflies and hummingbirds.
Shrub and tree screens
can also act as windbreaks,
deflecting wind upward and
reducing its velocity for short
It has been estimated that
proper use of vegetative screens
can reduce the noise level as

much as sixty percent. Plant
parts break up sound waves,
change their direction, and
reduce their intensity. Through
judicious use of trees, shrubs
and fences, you can reduce
the sound of a heavily traveled
highway running past your
home to the level of a suburban
street in the quiet of evening.
But too often when people
decide to plant a screen or
hedge, they get stuck with
the idea that is has to be a
monoculture of one type
of evergreen shrub such as
Leyland cypress, arborvitae or
ligustrum. This isn't a bad idea
per se, but it can look a little
boring when there are so many
other options.
A monoculture hedge does
have a few problems. What if
an insect or disease strikes your
hedge? Chances are all of your
shrubs will be lost.
The best alternative is to
plant a hedge using a variety
of large and small shrubs and
trees. Generally, an area that
requires screening will need
it year round, so evergreens
naturally predominate in any list
of screening plants. But don't
be afraid to add a deciduous
plant. A few deciduous plants
can provide wonderful color,
especially in the fall.
When choosing plants for
screening, check the available
space carefully and know the
mature height and width of the
plant. Be sure that the plants you
choose will fit in the allotted
space without undue amounts
of maintenance. If you have to
prune your plants frequently to
keep them in check, it's more
than likely you used the wrong
plant for that location. Also,
when mixing several different
types of plants, be sure to
choose ones with similar
growth requirements.
The choice of plants for a
screen is practically unlimited.
Flowering shrubs like abelia,
azalea, camellia, and oleander
can be used effectively. For
something a little unusual, add
a fruiting plant to your hedge
such as blueberry or pineapple
For a change- in texture,,
consider adding an ornamental
grass. And don't forget the
native plants. An upright,
female yaupon holly or wax
myrtle would make a great
addition to any mixed hedge.

What the holiday dinner looked like a century ago

The holiday dinner of a cen-
tury ago in a typical Pennsyl-
vania farmstead would have
taken up to two weeks to pre-
pare. It featured delicacies that
have vanished from the modem
Thanksgiving or Christmas table
and others that would surprise
people today.
So says George Gross, direc-.

depicts farm life as it was be-

"Venison, wild turkey-or rab-
bit would be served for Thanks-
giving," Gross says. "At Christ-
mas, meats were often pulled
from the smoker because hunt-

ing for fresh game was more
difficult in the snow and cold.
Or one of the youngest children
might be asked to kill a goose or
one of the farm's chickens that
had stopped laying eggs."
There was no ham on the
menu for Christmas dinner 1905,
nor pork, either, Gross says,
"Pork and ham were daily

breakfast staples and were not
considered fancy," he notes.
The farm wife and her daugh-
ters-and sons not old enough
for outside labor-prepared the
meats for cooking. They would
clean and dress the deer or rab-
bit, and boil and feather the
chicken or goose. The: feath-
ers were saved for pillows. The
meats roasted on an open hearth
or in the oven of a wood stove.
Cooking on the stove top were
vegetables brought up from the
root cellar such as turnips, pars-
nips, squash and potatoes which.
were served mashed with fresh
butter and cream from the fam-
ily cows.
: Deep-dish onion and egg pie
was a favorite in those days and
it took about five hours to collect
the eggs and milk, prepare the
dish and cook in a.wood.oven. A
loaf or two of bread would have
been freshly baked earlier in the
No oohy gooey "death by
chocolate" for dessert. The farm
family of 1905 would enjoy a
tart made from canned fruit pre-
paredearlier and pie crust rolled,
and baked that day.
While it could take a day
or two to gut, clean, skin and
dress a deer, that was not the
most time-consumiig part of
meal preparation. It took up to
two weeks to make the favorite
family holiday beverage-root,
"Folks belie\ ed that root beer
was an excellent drink for them,-
thinking the roots killed bacteria
in the drinking water, thus mak-
ing it safer to drink than water,"
says Gross. "They hadn't real-
ized that it was the boiling pro-
cess that was doing the trick and,
had they wanted to drink safer
water, they only needed to boil.
it." .. ; .
SIt took a full day and some-
times longer to clean, boil and
store the assorted roots used for
the beverage. Then it took t\wo
\reeks for fermenting.
Holidays in 1905 were not
,days off as we kno\ them today.

SOn Thanksgiving or Christmas,
the farmer and his boys might
only tend to the animals but
that still meant hours of back-
breaking labor beginning well
before dawn. Farmers typically
ate large breakfasts and midday
meals. Supper was a small meal
with scraps of leftovers, perhaps
a crust of bread and some cheese
or fruit.
That's why the holiday meal
of 1905 would have been served
at midday or certainly no later
than mnid-afternoon. In some
places in rural Pennsylvania
"dinner" today.is still served at
noon and supper comes in the
Like today, the holiday table
of 1905 would have featured the
best dinner are. flatware and
glassware that the hostess had to
offer. Candles were lit for illu-
mination, not for atmosphere.
One more thing: the lady of
the house would have planned
the quantities for her 1905 meal
perfectly because there was no
refrigeration for leftovers: And
the next morning she would
have gotten up and started all
over again.
