A stop for a minor equipment violation ended
with the arrest of a 20-year-old man after officers
found 14 grams of marijuana in his car.
Arrested was Eric Michael Harvey, whose driv-
er's license listed a Tallahassee address although

FHP Trooper Jason King.
FHP Trooper Robert "Dusty" Arnold stopped
Harvey's two-door Pontiac about 4.5 miles east
of Bristol on State Road 20 around 9:30 p.m.
When he approached the driver, Arnold detected
the faint odor of marijuana and noticed the driver
acting extremely nervous, which prompted him to
ask to search the vehicle.
When Arnold, along with King and Sgt. Steve
Swier of the Liberty County Sheriff's Department,
looked through the vehicle they found eight grams
of-marijuana and paraphernalia in a round metal
container under the driver's seat. Tucked in dif-
ferent places throughout the vehicle they found
several plastic baggies, each with a small amount
of marijuana which added up to six grams.
Traveling with Harvey was a 16-year-old girl
from Wakulla County. Her father picked her up and
took her home while Harvey was taken to jail.

arrested on disorderly intox.
A Calhoun County man was charged with disor-
derly intoxication after a confrontation with a deputy
who responded to a report of a fight Friday night.
Curtis Strickland, 34, met with a deputy at
Faircloth Trailer Park to report an assault and show
his injuries and named Littleton Bramblett as his
attacker. The deputy could not take a sworn state-
ment from Strickland at that time "due to the odor
of alcohol and his obvious impairment."
Deputy Bliss Moreau then went to Bramblett's
residence on Hinton Johnson Road, where the sus-
pect met him outside, yelling obscenities.
Bramblett kept his right hand in his pocket but
finally removed it after the officer asked a second
time. After handcuffing Bramblett, who was visibly
intoxicated, the deputy found a large pocket knife
in his pocket.
While Strickland, who was also drinking that
night, blamed Bramblett for injuries to his nose,
cheek and lip, a witness reported that she saw
Strickland coming out of Bramblett's residence
earlier that evening. When Strickland emerged, the
witness said he fell down the front porch steps and
landed on his face.
The witness said Strickland then got up, grabbed
his face and asked if she would give him a ride to
the trailer park, which she did.
After Bramblett's disorderly intoxication charge,
it was discovered that a warrant had been issued
for him in an earlier case in which he wanted for

Trailer Park at 11:29 p.m. Saturday, he found Melody

after her husband locked her out. Her husband told
the deputy the reason she hadn't been able to come
inside was that the door had jammed and she was
too intoxicated to get it open.
The deputy noted in his report that the woman was
"extremely intoxicated and I could smell a strong
odorof an alcoholic be\ erage emitting from her." He
also reported that she. was "extremely unsteady" on
her feet and her speech was mumbled and slurred.

Luminaria ceremony honors
cancer survivors and lost
loved ones during Relay for Life
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Calhoun-Liberty
counties will be honoring cancer survivors and those who have lost
their battle with the disease during its Relay for Life event in Bristol
on May 5. A Luminaria Ceremony will be held after dark to pay trib-
ute to those who have faced this disease. The Luminaria bags have
the name of the honoree on them, and a candle inside. Luminarias
are placed around the track and at dark the candles are lit to pay
tribute-to each honoree.
The American Cancer Society extends an invitation to all cancer
survivors and their families to participate in Relay for Life. It's a
unique community event that allows individuals from all walks of
life to join iri the fight against cancer. Last year, more than 3 mil-
lion Americans participated in Relay for Life and more than 500,000
cancer survivors walked the opening laps.
At the event, cancer survivors will kick-off the relay by walking
the Survivors' Victory Lap around the track. If you have not regis-
tered as a survivor and would like to do so, please call the American
Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345. Then members of each team
take to the track and one person from each team remains on the track
throughout the entire 18 hours.
To request a Luminaria on behalf of a loved one, please call Janice
Graham at 762-3356. The American Cancer Society is still recruit-
ing teams to participate in this event. For more information or if you
are interested in volunteering, call Wes Johnston, event chairman at

Text: Ephesians 1:1-14
W. A. Criswell said, "Which way
does the Mississippi River flow?
There are times and places where it
flows north and then due west, but it
ultimately flows south. So the elec-
tive purpose of God in Christ Jesus is
frustrated, turned, and twisted, but it
is God's purpose of the ages that the
reign and kingdom shall belong to
"...He made known to us...His
will...to be put into effect when the
times... have reached their fulfill-
ment... (NIV)" God is the author of
history. Think about the times and
events of Christ's birth.
Alexander the Great had con-
quered the world spreading the Greek
language throughout. The world knew
a common language, Koine, or com-
mon Greek. Then Rome conquered the
world providing one world govern-
ment and the Pax Romana or Roman
peace. Rome built roads connecting
provinces throughout the world.
"In the fullness of time (Gal 4:4
NV)," Christ was born, lived, cruci-
fied and resurrected! Then, during the
feast of the Pentecost, when Jews and
Gentiles from all over the world gath-
ered, the Holy Spirit came with power.
The gospel was preached and that day
alone, 3,000 were saved. When the
feast was over, all of those born again
believers traveled freely over the road
s back to their provinces speaking a
common language spreading the gos-
pel all over the world.
It was not by chance that Jesus
came when He did. It was no accident
that Christianity spread like wild fire
all over the world. God is in control
When the "times have reached their
fulfillment," Christ is coming back, not
as the suffering servant, but as King of
Kings and Lord of Lords to conquer
'naB*e4i1ish 'His eternal kingdom!'

LCHS junior Darren Evans selected for Talquin Electric Coop. Youth Tour Program
from Talquin Electric Cooperative
Cooperative held its annual
Youth Tour program on
March 15 and 16. High school
juniors representing schools
throughout Talquin's four
county service area assembled
in Tallahassee for competition.
Each student was selected
by their respective school
The Youth Tour was inspired
by the late President Lyndon
B. Johnson. As a senator from
Texas he addressed the Annual
Meeting of the National
Rural Electric Cooperatives
Association (NRECA) in
1957. "If one thing goes out
of the meeting," Johnson
said, he hoped it would be
"sending youngsters to the
national capital where they
can see actually what the flag
stands for and represents."
Beginning that year, some
Texas cooperatives sent groups
of young people to Washington
to work in Senator Johnson's
office for the purpose of
learning about government.
Iowa and Illinois
cooperatives followed suit
and by 1959, Youth Tour had
grown to 130 students. The
Youth Tour now has over
1,500 students participating
In Tallahassee, the Talquin
students joined students from
six Florida.cooperatives. Two
representatives from NRECA
conducted a congressional
insight workshop for the
students. Our students found
out first hand that being elected
involves a lot more than just
packing up and moving to our
nation's capital to become a
member of the 110th Congress.
The group was divided into
teams, each representing a
newly-elected member of
congress. Each team is given
a specific biography, district
description and political party/
staff information. Teams
select staff, choose party
leaders, and deal with issues of
public policy. Policy issues are
discussed and each team has
to reach a consensus to solve
the problem in a given period
This fast-paced, political
challenge immersed these
students in a real world
experience of the legislative
process and allowed them
the chance to develop an
understanding of a day in
the life of a United States
With increasingly tight
deadlines, team members
had to decide which bills to
support, which committee
posts to seek, how much time
to devote to fund raising and
what tradeoffs to make amidst
constituents, party, lobbyists,
There were 11 rounds of
decision making. The final
round is managing a campaign
budget for re-election. The
computer simulation gave
teams instant feedback. Within
seconds, the teams learned how
their decisions helped or hurt
their chances for re-election.
The feedback came in the form
of poll results, memoranda and
district media coverage. Just
life, real life!
The group visited the Florida
House of Representatives.
While seated in the visitors
gallery, they were given
an opportunity to observe
bills being introduced and
voted upon. Seeing a bill
navigated through one branch
of government was insightful.
The group nest saw an IMAX
movie while at the Challenger

Coldwater Creek Canoe Trail,
an outstanding state-designated
canoe trail often cited.as the best
in the state.
A large portion of the project

Horse owners should know how to prevent deadly disease
Mare Reproductive Loss Syndrome
linked to Eastern Tent Caterpillars
The Uhiersit, ..of Florida
College of Veterinary Medicine
has confirmed one case of Mare
Reproductive Loss Syndrome
MRLS and has two other cases
that are suspect. All three'cases
occurred in Alachua County this
spring. The diagnosis of MRLS
was made by Dr. John Roberts,
pathologist at the University of
Florida College of Veterinary
One mare produced a sep-,
tic foal on March 18, 2006 that
was euthanatized after two days
of intensive treatment. Samples
from an earlier abortion on the
same farm were re-examined and
showed indications of NIRLS:
Dr. John Roberts. UF patholo-
gist, has termed that case sus-
pect. The third case was a foal
born on March 26 that was treat-
ed in the neonatal intensive care
unit at ihe University of Florida
for 12 hours before being eu-
thanatized. Although complete
histopathologic evaluation will
not be completed until March
30. Roberts said the pathology
was consistent w ith MRLS.
Dr. Roberts w worked at the
University of Kentucky Li\e-
stock Disease Diagnostic Center
during the Kentuck MNIRLS out-
break of 2001-_2002.
N IRL S has nbt been previous-
1\ reported in Florida. The Ken-
rucky outbreak suffered severe
economic losses estimated to be
near $336-500 nullion and a loss
of 30 percent of the estimated
foal crop for 2002.
Charles H. Bronson is urging
horse owners to vaccinate their
horses against Eastern Equine
Encephalitis (:EEEi and West Nile
Virus as mosquito season gets
under way. Four cases of EEE
have already been confirmed in
Florida since January one as
recently as this week even
though the first cases are not
usually seen until May.
Bronson says the majority of
cases can be prevented through
proper vaccinations and booster
shots against mosquito borne
illnesses and he is reminding
horse owners that now is the
time to take action.
"Last year there were 150
reported cases of EEE across 43
counties, triple the number from
the N ear before when 48 cases of
the disease reported impacting
27 counties," Bronson said.
-"Now that mosquito season is
upon us. it is critical that horse
owners take steps to protect
their animals. We have already
seen some EEE cases due to the.
relatively warm winter and we
need to ensure that these cases
are kept to a minimum."
EEE is a viral disease that
affects the central nervous
system and is transmitted to
horses by infected mosquitoes.
Signs of the virus include fever.
listlessness. stumbling, circling.
coma and usually death. The
disease is fatal in horses in 90
percent of the cases.
Bronson says he is pleased that

.no cases of West Nile Virus have
been reported so far .this year,
and WNV cases have continued
to drop over the years since a
vaccination against the disease
became available in 2001.
"There was a lot of attention
paid to West Nile Virus when it
was first discovered in Florida
in 2000. Horse owners did a
very good job in protecting their
animals from this disease. We
want to be sure they are just as
aggressive in protecting horses
against EEE," Bronson said.
The Departmentandthe state's
numerous mosquito control
districts have strengthened
their surveillance, control
and prevention measures in
order to be better prepared for
mosquito-borne illnesses. There
are ongoing efforts to keep the
mosquito populations down but
because there, is no fool proof
method to prevent the diseases,
vaccinations are critical.
So far this year EEE has
been confirmed in horses in
Columbia, Duval, Marion and
Levy counties, all of which were

idea, there is a theory that min-

this with your farm's veterinar-
ian and/or nutritionist.
At this time, we strongly
recommend that all abortions
and foal deaths receive a post-
mortem evaluation. Inspection
of pastures for the presence of
cherry trees and caterpillars is
critical. The only way to protect
the pregnant mare is to remove
her from contact with the cater-
pillars. Early pregnancy loss can
be detected by ultrasonographic

ire is prescribed for 1.5 .to 2 mil-
ion acres of land each year.
"Prescribed burning is a pre-
rise tool for vegetation manage-
ment," said Alan J. Long, a UF/
EFAS associate professor with the
School of Forest Resources and
Conservation. "When properly

wildfire by decreasing shrub and

md if there is an abundance of
ire-prone plant life, the chances
)f a wildfire increase greatly.
One of the advantages of pre-
;cribed burning is the controlled

,cribed burning, the controlled
ise of fire to achieve land man-

Prescribed burning is also

In order to conduct a pre-

DOF. Before seeking authoriza-
tion, a burner must prepare a burn
plan, which includes pertinent in-
formation like location, size and
description of area to be burned,
amount and type of vegetation,
and a weather analysis.
UF/IFAS Leon County Forest-
ry Extension Agent Stan Rosen-
thal, who has years of experience
assisting landowners with land
management planning that in-
cludes prescribed fire, emphasizes
that, "Every landowner's situation
is different, so it is impossible to
provide a general fire prescrip-

Harvey Grantham honored with Jefferson Award
in recognition of a lifetime of community service
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Harvey Grantham may have
retired from his job as main-
tenance supervisor with the Calhoun
County School System five years ago
but it didn't mean he stopped work-
If anything, retirement freed him up
to do even more of what he likes most:
"Harvey lives not to please himself,
but to please the God he serves," said
Pastor David Goodman. "He is a
loving, forgiving and compassionate
person, as well as a man of his word,
displaying honesty and integrity."
Harvey, who recently turned 70, is
the man many call when there's no one
else. And for that, he was recognized
in a ceremony April 6 by Channel 13 in
Panama City as one of the panhandle's
five 2006 Jefferson Award winners.
The Jefferson Award honors unsung
heros who make a difference in their
He credits his wife, Mae Belle, and
his faith in making him the man he is
today. "I just have a love in my heart to
help people who are really in need," he
said. His only pay, aside from the oc-
casional jar of jelly or other homemade
gift, is appreciation. "Your heart just
throbs when you get to help someone."
What pushes him to do so much for
so many? Grantham said he's never
forgotten % hat "an old man" once told
him: "Use it or lose it." He makes the
most of his time, energy and the skills

*As a community member, he helps out
with the many cookouts and fundraisers,
and has delivered meals to the homebound
through the senior citizens program.
*As member of the Blountstow n Lions
Club, he's taken part in eyeglass campaign
drives and scholarship programs.
*For 40 years, he's been on call as-
a volunteer firefighter, according to
Blountstown Mayor Winston Deason. For
30 of those years, he served as fire chief.
"He was on call 24 hours a day, seven
days a week for many years and in the
beginning was a one man fire depart-
ment," wrote Deason, in a letter nominat-
ing Grantham for the Jefferson Award.

son noted, he did his job while still "taking

at Carr School to make a point with
the students one day. When he had
to change out the pumps in the septic
tank a rather messy and smelly job

of the kids as they walked past on
their way to PE. He said he made a
point to tell the kids who were watch-
ing him struggle in the muck with the
equipment, "If you don't get a good
education, you're liable to be doing this
same thing when you're grown." He
hopes it's a message that stuck in their

She called him in a panic around 5
a.m one morning to ask for his help.
He told her, "Miss Edna, I'm on. my
way." Grantham drove nine miles to
her home. "The water line busted in
front of the tub valve and was just pour-
ing water under the house," Grantham
said. He took care of it.
When he went to 82-year-old Elma
Stewart's house to make a small repair,
he noticed a problem with her steps and
took care of it right away. "He saw that
I was having a hard time getting up and

she said, noting that she hadn't even
mentioned the problem to him.
"Everybody knows that Harvey

help, there is no doubt that he is going

One of the most beautiful
blooms of spring comes from
the walking iris. This plant
has several common names.
Botanically, it's known as
Neomarica gracilis, and is a
member of the Iris family.
It's called walking
iris because of its habit
of propagating itself by
producing plantlets that form
at the tips of the flower stalk.
When the new plantlet is
formed, it inevitably bends
to the ground and takes
root. This new plant then
repeats the process. Thus, the
walking iris "walks" through
The sword-shaped leaves
grow in the form of a fan,
hence another of its common
names, the fan iris. And
because there are usually
twelve leaves in a fan it is
also called the twelve apostles
plant. And once you see the
bloom of the walking iris,
you will appreciate another of
its common names--the poor
The exotic-looking, delicate
flowers appear in spring and
resemble a cross between an
orchid and an iris. Although
they are short lived, lasting
only a day, others follow over
an extended period. The pure
white outer petals spread out
almost horizontally and have
unusual yellow and mahogany
markings at their base. The
three central petals are shorter,
have a distinct curl and are
blue with mahogany colored

Other species of Neomarica
provide flowers of different
colors. N. longifolia has
yellow blooms with mahogany
splotches on the petals. N.
caerulea has light blue petals
with brown, yellow and white
Walking iris is a clumping
herbaceous perennial that
reaches a height of 18 to 36
inches. It is hardy in zone 10
but has survived in my zone
8 garden, in the ground, for
several years. In protected
areas it remains evergreen. In
.more open areas, it will show
signs of cold damage. In
harsh winters, this plant will
have to be protected or it will
Place walking iris in an
area that receives partial to
full shade. It is tolerant of
a wide range of moist, but
drained, soils. It is best to err
on the wet side since it will not
endure drought conditions. It
has low to no salt tolerance.
Walking iris is a very
versatile plant. They are quite
lovely when massed together
and can be used as a taller
groundcover in the shade.
They can be used in borders,
beds or container plantings.
A large hanging basket makes
an ideal home for this plant.
Walking iris is very easy to
propagate by division. Simply
divide an existing clump or
detach a new, rooted plantlet
from the mother plant.
This plant is somewhat
available in nurseries, but
usually not widely sold. Most
gardeners depend on getting a
start from a friend, making this
a popular pass-along plant.

Blountstown student attends legacy honors event in New York City
from the American Legacy Foundation
Adrian D. Abner of
Blountstown attended the annu-
al Legacy Honors Event, which
was held at Cipriani's in New
York City, on March 6. Abner
serves as the Youth Board Li-
aison to the American Legacy
Foundation Board of Directors.
The foundation is the nation's
largest public health foundation
dedicated to building a world
where young people reject to-
bacco and anyone can quit.
The annual fundraiser fea-
tured Senator Hillary Rodham
Clinton, award-winning musi-
cian Moby, Law & Order: Spe-
cial Victims Unite actress Diane
Neal, Broadway performers
Cady Huffman and Liz Cal-
loway, fashion designer Tracy
Reese and other luminaries to
honor those working toward the
foundation's mission: to build a
world where young people reject
tobacco and anyone can quit us-
ing tobacco products. Each year
in the U.S., more than 400,000
Americans lose their lives to
tobacco-related diseases, from
heart disease and cancers to em-
physema and stroke. The annual
Honors ceremony raises funds
for life-saving programs and
campaigns to keep young peo-
ple from smoking, and to help
Americans who want to quit get
the services and support they
Abner, 20, is currently a ju-
nior at Florida Agricultural and
Mechanical University (FAMU),
where he is pursuing a Bachelor
of Science degree in business.
Abner has demonstrated his
interest in and commitment to
tobacco-control initiatives. He
has been involved in the Florida
Students Working Against To-
bacco (SWAT) program since
its inception, and strives to edu-
cate students about the dangers
of smoking. He has worked to
sustain Florida's SWAT in recent
years due to funding reductions
by the Florida legislature. This
past year, Abner helped evalu-
ate a contract for the SWAT
program, which is now on a sub-
stantially smaller budget.
The American Legacy Foun-
dation selects its Youth Board
Liaison from a group of youth
who currently serve the organi-
zation. Among the foundation's
programs that involve young
people in tobacco prevention
and cessation initiatives is the
Youth Activism Council (YAC),
which Abner was selected to in
March 2004. The YAC helps the
foundation creatively and ef-
fectively convey the risks of to-
bacco products to young people.
Abner, who is currently serving
an 18-month term on the YAC,
also serves as the Youth Board
The American Legacy Foun-
dation is dedicated to building a
world where young people reject
tobacco and anyone can quit.
Located in Washington, D.C.,
the foundation develops pro-
grams that address the health
effects of tobacco use through
grants, technical assistance and
training, youth activism, strate-
gic partnerships, counter-mar-
keting and grassroots market-
ing campaigns, public relations
and outreach to populations
disproportionately affected by
the toll of tobacco. The founda-
tion's national programs include
Circle of Friends, Great Start,
a Priority Populations Initia-
tive, Streetheory and Truth. The

Registration deadline is May 5 for next nationwide ACT test
The next nationwide ACT
test date for college-bound high
school students is Saturday, June'
10, 2006, Students must register
online or have their paper
registrations postmarked by
the end of the day May 5. Late
registration postmark deadline
is May 19 (an additional $18 fee
is required for late registration
after May 5).
The June test date is a popular
one for juniors. Around two-
thirds of test-takers in June, have
just completed .the eleventh
grade. Many of them take the
ACT, check their scores and then
decide whether to re-test in the
fall or winter of their senior year.
By looking at their scores during
the summer, students can study
to boost academic weaknesses
before taking the test again as
seniors. ACT allows students
to report only the scores that
they want to colleges. Students
can choose not to automatically
report their scores when they
register for the test.
The ACT includes an optional
Writing Test. Most colleges
do not require a writing score,
so students should check the
admissions requirements of
colleges they're considering
before registering for the ACT.
The cost is $29 without and $43
with the Writing Test.
Students can receive
registration information from
their high school guidance
counselors or they can register
online at- www.actstudent.org.
The Web site also features test
tips, practice tests, an online test
prep program, and a database
for students to find out if a
prospective college requires a
ACT scores are accepted
by virtually all colleges and
universities in the nation,
including all Ivy League
schools. The ACT is an academic
achievement exam that includes
four tests; English, reading,
math, and science. Students who
opt to take the Writing Test will
add 30 minutes to the normal 3-
hour testing time.
Q: Is breastfeeding much better
for a baby's health?
A: Yes. Strong research shows
- uR l
that breastfeeding offers babies
protection against a variety of in-
fections, like bacterial meningitis
as well as respiratory, intestinal,
ear and urinary tract infections.
The protection seems to come from
antibodies that are passed from
the mother to the child through
breastmilk. Some studies also
suggest that breastfed babies may
have a lower risk of obesity, sud-
den infant death syndrome (SIDS)
and one type of diabetes, but more
research is needed to clarify the
possible links. Mothers appear to
benefit from breastfeeding, too.
They seem to return to pre-preg-
nancy weight sooner. Their risk
of breast cancer may also decline,
although this effect is not seen in
Q: Is there any reason to eat
carbohydrates, other than dietary
A: Yes. Carbohydrates are the
main energy source for the body,
and the brain especially depends on
them. Current recommendations
call for getting 45 to 65 percent of
your calories from carbohydrates,
which include starches, sugars and
dietary fiber. The more calories
you burn up in a day, the more car-
bohydrates you should eat >ince
healthy eating means avoiding
excess fat and protein. Although
some foods with added sugars can
be a part of good eating, most of
your carbohydrates should come
from vegetables, fruits, whole
grains and beans. Bread, rice, pasta
and cereal are carbohydrate-rich
foods, but you should look for
whole-grain varieties because they
are more nutritious. Even if we
didn't need all of these plant foods
for their carbohydrates, they are
vital sources of vitamins, miner-
als and natural plant compounds
that help prevent cancer and heart
disease. ; -, "'
