Quick response saves Gregory House from fire damage Monday

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
"If it had happened at night, it could have been hor-
That's what Torreya State Park Manager Steve Cut-
shaw said about a fire that was sparked by a short in
a heat pump sitting just a few feet outside the historic
Gregory Home Monday.
"There was no damage-because it was caught
quickly," he said, explaining that wires between the heat
pump and the junction box melted and began burning.
"The main wires and the junction box were literally
flaming," he said.
Luckily, it was noon and Park Ranger Dennis Tyus
was leaving the office adjacent to the house when he saw
smoke blowing from the side of the building.
When Tyus went to investigate, he saw the flames
from the electrical equipment heating up the side of the

fice and was able to knock the fire down," said Cutshaw.
Tyus radioed for help and within a couple of minutes,

157-year-old heart pine structure.
"He ran and got the closest fire extinguisher in the of-
fice and was able to knock the fire down," said Cutshaw.
Tyus radioed for help and within a couple of minutes,
state park staffers arrived with a fire truck.
"Things worked exactly as they should have," Cut-
shaw said about the quick response, noting that fire

extinguishers are kept close at hand. He admits luck
played a factor as well. "If he hadn't walked out at the
right moment, without a doubt, the side of the building
would have caught fire," he said.
The fire broke out on the east side of the main portion
of the house, near the front parlor.
"There's no replacing a cultural resource like the
Gregory House," he added. "Luckily, we were all here
and all close."
Winter is a busy time of year at the state park. Cut-
shaw said daily tours are continuing as scheduled despite
the close call.
The Gregory House was built in 1849 by planter Ja-
son Gregory at Ocheesee Landing in Calhoun County.
In 1935, the house was dismantled and moved across
the Apalachicola River to its present location in Liberty
County's Torreya State Park.

Fire halted before destroying mobile home
A quick response by members of the Blountstown Fire Department kept a small blaze from
growing out of control at a mobile home on Yates Street Sunday morning. Firefighters got the
call at 11:26 a.m. and despite the fact that many were in church arrived at the scene
by 11:30 a.m., according to Fire Chief Ben Hall. The fire was reported at the home of Hattie
Rives by her son, who was outside when he noticed smoke coming from the kitchen vent, Hall
said. The fire appears to have started behind the clothes dryer and burned a wall and some

Cocaine possession charges also filed against Jackson County suspect

Woman charged with stealing truck

The recovery of a truck stolen
from Blountstown has led to the
arrest of a Marianna woman
who is facing additional charges
after some cocaine residue was
found in the vehicle, according
to a report from the Blountstown
Police Department.
Monique LaCheryl Kee, 32,
was arrested Nov. 28 after in-
vestigators learned that she had
been seen driving the missing
vehicle a 2005 Chevro-
let truck owned by Dempsey
Kee was said to have been
at a relative's home in Jackson
County with the truck, accord-

ing to the report. Officers later
caught up with her at her broth-
er's residence on East Ninth
Court in Panama City.,
She was taken into custody on
a warrant for a probation viola-
tion and is being charged with

grand theft auto.
During a search of the stolen
truck, an unspecified amount of
cocaine residue and a straw like
those used to inhale the drug
were discovered in a cigarette
box tucked into the driver's
side door panel, resulting in ad-
ditional charges of possession of
cocaine and drug paraphernalia
against Kee.
The vehicle had been parked
at the Pear Street home of Noah
Houston, where it had remained
for about two weeks before go-
ing missing. A spare key that
had been left at the residence
also disappeared.

Driver denies drinking alcohol but

admits 'I have done a lot of cocaine'

A Perry man who couldn't
stay on his side of the road ob-
jected- when a Liberty County
Sheriff's Deputy pulled him
over Sunday for driving under,
the influence.

A Blountstown teen travel-
ing with several friends was
arrested after a traffic stop just
after 1 a.m. Saturday in Liberty
A deputy pulled over a Chev-
rolet Cavalier traveling on-State
Road-12 North after seeing ithad
no brake lights and crossed the
center line of road.
After noticing what appeared
to be frantic actions of a pas-
senger to put something under
the front seat, the officer asked
to search the vehicle.
During the search, a green pill

When told he was under ar-
rest, 18-year-old Benjamin E.
Moody replied, "I'm not drunk
but I have done a lot of cocaine,"
according to the deputy's re-

bottle that held what field-tested
positive as crack cocaine was
found in the rear passenger's
side floorboard.
The driver and two passen-
gers were advised they were
under arrest and taken to the
county jail.
The front seat passenger, iden-
tified as 18-year-old Anthony K.
Raulerson, later told deputies the
drug belonged to him and not the
other two in the vehicle.
The other two were released
and Raulerson was charged-with.
possession of crack cocaine..

That's when Deputy Jamie
Shiver explained to him that
'.'under the influence" could refer
to more than alcohol and took
him into custody.
Moody got the deputy's atten-
tion when his westbound 2006
Toyota truck crossed the center
line on State Road 20 several,
Shiver noted in his report
that Moody's eyes were red, his
speech seemed impaired and
"he was acting very strange."
He was unable to maintain his
balance during a roadside so-
briety test.
When asked if he had been
drinking, Moody told the deputy
that he had consumed some al-
cohol the day before, and then
volunteered that he was under
the influence of something else
at that time.
Moody was taken to the coun-
ty jail and booked for DUI.

An Altha man was arrested for
grand theft auto after he report-
edly ended a disagreement with
a woman by driving off in her
2001 Mazda.
According to the report from
the Calhoun County Sheriff's
Department, John Fleck and
Shannon Edenfield began arguing
Nov. 29 after she refused to drive
him to a house on Carpenter Cem-
etery Road in Grand Ridge.
Two hours after the car was
taken, Edenfield contacted au-
thorities and reported that she saw
Fleck leaving in her vehicle.
Fleck was later taken into
custody when the car was found
at his home.,

Boys, 12 & 13, confess to

breaking into storage bldg.
Three Hosford boys one 13, the other two just 12 years of age
- were charged with burglary and grand theft after they broke into
a storage building along State Road 20.

Man charged with
domestic battery
* A Calhoun County man who went
to his estranged wife's home to remove
some property is now facing a charge
of domestic violence after he allegedly
struck her as she was drinking a cup of
water and injured her lip.
Arrested was 44-year-old James A.
According to ihe deputy's report,
McKendree arrived at his former resi-
dence on Hummingbird Way to collect
some personal property when he and
Janet McKendree had words because
she wanted to put some items in a yard
sale that he wanted to take with him.
She told the deputy her husband
became angry and verbally abusive
and at that point, she threw a cup of
water at him.
She said she returned with another
cup of water and.when she put it to her
mouth to take a sip, he hit her.
McKendree was booked at the Cal-
houn County Jail after the 12:45 p.m.
incident Friday.

including collectible coins,
two-dollar bills, Christmas
ornaments and jewelry.
* Shortly after leaving the
scene of the break-in, Depu-
ty Sean Phinney learned that
someone had just brought
some similar items by T&P
Grocery. When he con-
tacted the owner, Thermon
Richter, the deputy was
told that a boy had used the
collectible coins to make a
The deputy caught up
with the boy, who then ad-
mitted that he and two oth-
ers had broken in Shuler's
storage building and taken
several things. The other
two boys later confessed

other after a scuffle in their room.
Both were described as "heavily
intoxicated" at the time.
According to the report, Veazey
attacked Scott after she threw his
three-inch pocket knife out of
their motel room.
Scott, who had a swollen,
busted lip, told deputies Veazey
attempted to hurt her with the
knife, but the report noted there
was no evidence to support that
Sc-ott admitted to hitting
Veazey "in self-defense." She
was taken to the emergency room
at Calhoun Liberty Hospital after
requesting medical attention.
The deputy noted that Veazey
had scratch marks on his head

and several abrasions on his face
that appeared to have occurred
some time ago. He also said he
hit Scott "in self-defense."
Due to the couple's level of
impairment, it was difficult for
deputies to get a statement. It was,
finally determined that Veazey
had put his knife in Scott's shoe
for safe keeping. Scott then went
into town and when she returned
to the room, she complained that
her foot was hurting.
When she took off her .shoe,
the knife fell out. At some point
after that, the two began fight-

mestic battery and probation

Students make signs for new bike path
The Blountstown Greenway Bike Path is almost completed
and some students from the Blountstown High School cabi-
net making class, along with their teacher Sidney Grainger,
have done their part to make the trail safer and more beau-
tiful. In the original plans for the bike path, DOT style stop
signs were placed at all the intersections. This created
some confusion when those not familiar with the trail mis-
took it for a residential roadway and drove motorized vehi-
cles on the path. With the help of the BHS cabinet making
class, new wooden stop signs were made along with signs
prohibiting motorized vehicle traffic. "These signs contrib-
ute to the ambiance and style we were seeking along the
Greenway as well as provide the necessary signage to
provide a safe walking and riding environment," said Police
Chief Glenn Kimbrel. The City of Blountstown would like to
extend their thanks to the BHS cabinet making class and
Sidney Grainger for their help in making these signs.

Day Care kids send gifts to soldiers
Youngsters at Kids Kingdom Day Care in Blountstown
were busy last week writing notes and coloring pictures
on holiday cards being sent to the 40 soldiers in Company
B in Iraq, which includes Scott McDaniel, the son of day
care employee Ann Jourdan (the two are pictured at left).
I They sent gift packages which contained a DVD, a music
CD and a pocket-sized Bible. "Our goal was to purchase a
Movie for everyone in Scott's division,"said Daycare owner
Barbara Collier. "We just wanted to do something special
because these guys are over there giving everything they
have," Collier said. The kids created a patriotic Christmas
tree, decorating with flags and other red, white and blue
ornaments. Their colorful cards .are shown at the base

Toy-related injuries sent more than

202,000 kids to the hospital last year
It seems the holidays keep coming earlier and earlier every year, thanks in large
part to retailers. Stores are stocked with merchandise and decorations to tempt
buyers into starting their holiday shopping immediately. And with all the pressures
of buying the hottest toy or gadget, it's easy to. get swept away.
But before you head to the mall or go online, make sure that the gift you. pur-
chase will be a safe one. Unfortunately, thousands of children are injured every
year by toys. In 2005, the Consumer Product Safet\ Commnission estimated that
202,300 children were treated in the emergency room for to) -ielaied injuries. And,
94,000 of those injuries were to the face and head, including the ey es. E. e injuries
consisted of lacerations, abrasions and foreign bodies.
Air, BB and Spring guns accounted for a large portion of the documented inju-
ries to children's eyes. Any toys that shoot projectiles are always dangerous. Even
common products such as pens, pencils, crayons and other art supplies, were in-
volved in many accidents.
"It's so important to make sure that every toy a child plays with is age appro-
priate," said Jay Tobin, President and CEO of Prevent Blindness Florida. "Ninety
percent of all eye injuries are preventable but we have to closely monitor kids to
ensure their, safety."
Prevent Blindness Florida has declared December as Safe-Toys and Gifts Month
and is urging all toy buyers to read the labels and pay attention to the toys they
select for their children. The group suggests the following tips to help make this
holiday season a safe one for children:
*Avoid toys that shoot or include parts that fly off. Slingshots and even wa-
ter guns are dangerous because they invite children to target other kids. BB guns
should not even be considered toys.
*Inspect toys for sturdiness. Your child's toys should be durable with no sharp
edges or points.The toys should also withstand impact. -
*Look for the letters "ASTM." This means the product meets the national safety
standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
*Don't give toys with small parts to young children. Young kids tend to put
things in their mouths, increasing the risk of choking.
*Read directions carefully and follow suggested age levels. Ask yourself if the
toy is right for your child's ability and age.
*Repair or throw away damaged toys.
*Keep toys meant for older children away from younger ones.
*Make a list of safety rules and share them with your child. If your child is play-
ing with friends, tell everyone your safety rules.
Remain aware of recalled products. For further information on toy and product
recalls, visit the U.S. Product Safety Commission Web site at www.cpsc.gov.
For more information on safe toys and gifts, please contact Prevent Blindness
Florida at 813.874.2020 or visit www.preventblindness.brg.

But she loves me little. If my heart

If I were dead, she would forget me

me a penny. She has been a constant',
How is it? Do I withhold my love

porate agricultural concepts
into science, history, language
arts and math lessons, and in-
clude activities such as plant
tissue culture propagation,
hydroponics, and eath box
gardening. Florida Ag in the
Classroom curricula and ma-
terials will be used to comple-
ment these activities.
"It -is essential .that Florida
teachers incorporate these ag-
ricultural concepts into their
classrooms through an applied
learning experience that Flori-
da Ag in the Classroom makes
possible," said Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson, who is a former
agriculture teacher. "Teachers
that utilize the grant program
are ensuring the future of the
Florida agriculture industry by
educating their students about
the importance of the industry
and the role it plays in provid-
ing them with food, fiber and
other natural resources."
Florida Ag in the Classroom
can provide grant money for
teachers because of the fund-
ing it receives from the agri-
culture specialty license plate
also called the Ag Tag.
"Our teacher grant program
gives us the chance to provide
teachers with the resources,

they need in their classrooms
to bring agricultural concepts
to life," said Heather Ned-
ley, chairmen of Florida Ag
in the Classroom and execu-
tive director of Polk County
Farm Bureau. "The applied
curriculum provides students
with opportunities to learn
about plants and other agri-
culture commodities, and see
how these commodities fit into
their daily lives."
The local 2006-07 teacher
grants include:
-Liberty County High
School "LCHS ESE Square
Foot Gardening." Special-
needs high school students
plant square foot gardening
beds, and use Florida Ag in
the Classroom lessons to learn
from about the commodities
they grow.
Florida Ag in the Classroom

charged with educating stu-
dents and teachers about the
importance of Florida agri-
culture by providing them with

Liberty County High School

receives Florida Ag grant


It was 'shonuff' a welcome homecoming in Bristol

To the editor:
That was all I could say after
going to the best wedding I have
ever attended.
I asked myself what was so
different about this wedding?
I had eight hours to think
about it while driving back to
Palm Beach County from Bris-
tol and listening to my 12-year-
old twins snoring in the back
This is what kept my eyes
open and a big smile on my
The first thing that got my at-
tention was that I just love Bris-
tol. It is the 67th county and the
smallest population-wise in the
state of Florida.
That means that everybody is
either related or will be related
soon or later, everybody knows
everybody and everybody
knows who your people are,
black or white. Everyone seems
to get along with each other..
The most important thing is
Blanch and Curtis Black were
from Bristol and I grew up there
with them. This is where I call
God's country.
I learned to hunt, feed the
hogs and chickens, plant corn,
peas and grind sugar cane plus
kill hogs during hog killing sea-
son. On Sunday, I would go to
Aunt Miste's for breakfast.
Yes, those were the days I
will always remember. While in
the Marines and Vietnam, all I
wanted to do is see Bristol one
more time. After that as a Los
Angeles policeman, I would
take two months vacation every

year one for Bristol and one
for California. I just had to go to
Bristol and anyone who knows
me had to love Bristol and ac-
cept my passion for it.
What made me know that
this was a wedding that will be
tough to be topped, due to the
fact that it was very inclusive
and kids-kids.
I haven't seen so many kids
in my life, which is a sign that I
am getting on in age.
Almost two years ago I had
a complete knee replacement.
About 7:30 p.m. a knock on.
the door produced Chacosglo
and her friend with the big eyes
(Beryann). They had a trunk full
of food and cakes. They stayed
with me for a week and trans-
ported me to and from the doc-
tor. I asked, "Who sent you up
here?" and she stated, "Mama
and Lloyd." That was a blessing
and a gift I will never forget. I
couldn't walk nor.drive.
Then I remembered (Daddy)
Curtis Black. He is actually my
granddaddy but we all called
him and Blanch "Black Daddy"
and mama. He always had a
bunch of kids around him and
put them to work, fed them and
taught them just what he was
teaching us. So just like Daddy,
Glo has taken that rein and I
guess Chacoglo will carry the
It seems as though the wed-
ding was a puzzle and everyone
had a part to play starting with
the bride and groom and their
Everyone had to get their
dresses and suits. The color

theme was black and red. This
was for all who attended. That
was a first for me. Some how
I didn't get the word. I wore
black with a blue shirt. No one
The crowning part of the
wedding for me was when the
bride's grandmother, Roseanna
and Willie Solomon marched
in. I had not seen them in a
long time. When I was small,
Roseanna ran Blountstown and
Bristol. I was talking with Pas-
tor Cecil Wilson and the subject
of his Army days came up. He
stated Willie Earving possibly
joined the army after seeing him
in uniform and hearing of his
travels. He looked like a general
in his uniform. I know because I
saw him. Between him and my
Uncle Timothy Black, I joined
the Marine Corps.
All the young mer andwomen
of Bristol, Miami, Blountstown,
Panama City, Chattahoochee,
Greensboro, Marianna and Los
Angeles were all looking like a
million dollars. Bristol still held

I' I

its own.
The food was just like eating
a Thanksgiving dinner at home
with an all-you-can-eat buffet.
There was shrimp, fresh oys-
ters and I mean fresh because
Lloyd and I went to get them. I
don't see how any were left be-
cause the twins and I ate a lot
the day before. Along with the
fried chicken, pork roast, ham,
yam, beans, string beans, salads
and a host of beverages. There
was all a person could want at
one setting plus they served at
the rehearsal the day before the
My hat is off to Bristol and
the bride and groom. I could not
have enjoyed myself more.
I really enjoyed watching and
being around everyone having a
wonderful time especially, the
young kids. I even saw my par-
ents, John and Lydia Speights,
shaking and clapping a little.
Craig Thompson announced

the bride's entrance and all got
to their feet and applauded one
of the kindest and sweetest per-
sons I have ever met.
Lloyd and Glo lost a daughter
and gained a son, who is equal
to his new bride..
I just would like to thank
the bride and groom for allow-
ing my family to participate in
a well-organized event that in-
cluded all and to thank Bristol
for being good to me, although I
was born in Hugh Creek. If you
are a Davis, McCray, Black or
Brown, then we are related.
I am just an ex-Marine (Viet-
nam vet), retired Los Angeles
policeman and now a mortgage
broker in Palm Beach County,
but I am most proud of being
from Bristol.

got an introduction-to the many
issues facing Florida's growing-
population when they attended
the three day 2007 Legislative

by talking with experienced
commissioners from around
the state.
The Calhoun County Com-
mission has already taken a
big step to address growth
management issues by agreeing
to hire a county planner. The
board was scheduled to review
a job description at Tuesday's
meeting and plans to begin ad-
vertising for the $50,000-a-year
position on Jan. 1.
Many of the counties .had
their full slate of commission-
ers in attendance and were,
accompanied by other county
officijis including administra-
tors, managers, and attorneys,
he said. Wyrick and Stoutamire
were the sole representatives
:for their counties at the annual
event which is held to hammer
out a legislative agenda for the
upcoming legislative session.
"It gave me some insight
into what goes on in the leg-
islature," said Stoutamire. "It
was a great meeting." He said
the new commissioner orienta-
tion "brought us up to speed
on what's expected of a county
Managing growth and taxa-
tion were the hot topics of the
conference. Transportation,
housing and rural development
were also discussed as coun-

ties worked to find a common
ground to define their needs be-
fore the legislature reconvenes
in Tallahassee next year.
Both Wyrick and Stoutamire
are concerned about proposed
changes that could double
Florida's homestead exemp-
tion, which would deplete
much-needed taxes.
"Raising the homestead
exemption will-kill small coun-
ties," said Wyrick. "It will take
almost a quarter of our budget
Stoutamire agrees, explain-
ing that since many people
in Liberty County don't pay
property taxes because their
homes are valued at less than
$25,000, the additional exemp-
tion would be devastating. It
the proposal goes into effect,
"we're going to be hurting in
Liberty County."
"We're seeing more of the
small counties come to the con-
ferences because of the growth
Florida's experiencing," said
FAC spokesperson Kriss Val-
lese. "It's encouraging. They
can learn from larger counties,
like Miami-Dade and Palm
Beach, that have been dealing
with growth, transportation and
affordable housing for several

Altha Wildcats open

The Altha Wildcats Varsity Boys basketball team
cranked up their 2006-2007 regular season last week
with two road wins and a win in The Den.
Tuesday night found the Wildcats at Poplar Springs
nuking the Atomics, 59-22.
Altha jumped out to a 16-4 first quarter lead and
never let up extending it to 35-9 at the half. The Cats
would add 10 points in the third period to the Atom-
ics' 5 points.
Defensively, Senior Wildcat Jason Holland kept
the boards clean to the tune of 9 rebounds along with -
a blocked shot and two steals. qi
Cale Chafin was credited with 5 assists, 5 steals, by Jim I
and 2 rebounds. contributing
Holland led the offensive charge for Altha with a
25-point performance, including a 4-for-5 display from the free throw line.
Kevin Saldana was good for 12 points.
Josh McIntosh drained 9 points, including a 3-pointer.
Nathan Castenada added 6 points to the Wildcats' cause and Corde
Beauchamp chipped in 4 points.
Cale Chafin's 3-pointer rounded out Altha's scoring.
Looking for an early Christmas gift, Altha traveled last Thursday to the
little town of Bethlehem and found exactly what they were looking for a
49-35 win.
This War of the Wildcats began as a defensive struggle with Altha
scratching out a 19-18 halftime lead.
Bethlehem would pull ahead in the third quarter, 29-26, but Altha made
like the Grinch and piled up 23 points for themselves in the final period
while allowing Bethlehem only 6 points
In the game Jason Holland was a rebound shy of a double-double. For
the second straight game he scored 25 points, knocking down all 3 of his
free throws, and he pulled down 9 boards.
Kevin Saldana threw down 8 points and he was 4-for-4 at the charity
Nathan Castenada cashed in 6 points while Josh McIntosh sank 4
Both Corde Beauchamp and Cale Chafin tallied 3 points each.
The Wildcats waited until Dec. 1 to gift-wrap one of their best perfor-
mances for the home folks as the Wildcats ripped the Freeport Bulldogs,
75-42, in The Den .
The Bulldogs \ anted to run all night long but the Cats said, "Not in our
house!" and they put 'em on a short leash. Not a single Bulldog scored
in double digits while all but three of Altha's scorers had a double-digit
scoring frenzy. Altha's field goal percentage matched their final score, 75
percent,.while Freeport could only muster a mere 46 percent.
The Wildcats went crazy SLo,,i ing in this game. Jason Holland had his.
first double-double of this young season with his third 25-point game and
20 rebounds

various kinds of plants that
can be used as groundcovers,
from perennials and herbs to
shrubs and native plants. This
book is beautifully illustrated
with color photographs and
line drawings throughout.
Simply Southern written by
the Escambia County Master
Gardeners is a great book on
local gardening. This book
was designed to introduce
newcomers to Northwest
Florida and coastal gardening.

It is filled with researched and
experience-based informa-
tion and is enthusiastically
presented. For more infor-
mation on how to order your
copy of Simply Southern, go
to http://escambia.ifas.ufl.
or call the Escambia County
Extension office at 475-5230.
For the avid gardener, one
who appreciates the value of
Latin plant names, The Pro-
nouncing Dictionary of Plant
Names is now available in a
new edition. Offered by the
American Nurseryman Pub-
lishing Co. this handy little
dictionary contains more than
3000 botanical names. Each
is spelled phonetically and
contains a brief description of
the plant name origin and its
Other ideas to buy the gar-
dener is an entire gardening
tool set, or just one or two
single high-quality items, like
pruning shears with replace-
able blades, or a spade, shov-
el, or rake. Gardening shoes,
clogs, or boots are great utili-
tarian items for those of us
who like to dig in the dirt.
Gloves and hats often need to
be replaced. Other ideas for
the gardener are wheelbar-
rows, birdbaths, birdfeeders,
bat houses, or fountains.
Indulge your favorite gar-
dener's passion with holiday
gifts from the heart.

Keep your holidays bright &

free from electrical hazards

With the holidays just around
the corner, now is the perfect time
to start thinking about decorat-
ing your home for the occasion.
Whether you wrap your house
with hundreds of lights and put
a life-size St. Nick and reindeer
on your roof, or just grace your.
tree with a few simple strings of
twinkling lights, holiday deco-
rations are a great way to cele-
brate the joys of the season with
friends and family.
But along with good cheer,
holiday decorations can bring
danger. According to the U.S.
Consumer Product Safety Com-
mission (CPSC), hospital emer-
gency rooms treat around 12,500
people annually for cuts, falls,
and shocks related to holiday
lights, decorations, and Christ-
mas trees. Most of these injuries
could be avoided by taking prop-
er precautions. Here are some
helpful tips from the Leviton In-
stitute to help keep your holiday
*Carefully inspect all holiday
lights and decorations before
you install them. Any wires that
are frayed, excessively kinked,
show visible gaps in insulation
or bare spots, or have cracked
or broken sockets should be re-
placed immediately. Make sure
all lights and extension cords are
UL rated for safety.
*Don't link more than three
strands of lights together unless

the instructions specifically say
that it's safe to do so. Connect
light strands together first, then
plug them into the extension
cord and plug the extension into
the outlet.
*Don't overload outlets or
extensions with too many lights
or decorations. It could create
a shock hazard, or even start a
fire. Problem signs. indicating
an overload include flickering
lights, blown fuses or tripped
circuit breakers, or outlets or
switches that feel warm to the
touch. If this occurs, be sure to
take corrective action immedi-
*Never place electric lights on
a metallic Christmas tree. And
when fastening lights to walls,
don't use regular metal staples
or nails; they could easily cut

through the insulation and short
out the wires. Use only insu-
lated staples or hooks specially
made for the purpose.
*Make sure when installing
lights outside that they are rated
for outdoor use and plugged
into a receptacle equipped with
a Ground Fault Circuit Inter-
rupter (GFCI), preferably one
with a weatherproof cover. If
no GFCI receptacles are avail-
able, you should use a GFCI
equipped extension cord set,
which is inexpensive (typically
around $25 or less), and widely
available. Just be sure to plug
the GFCI equipped extension
cord into the receptacle first,
and then plug in the lights and
decorations into the extension
*Always unplug lights when
away from home or when sleep-
*Be aware that young chil-
dren are attracted to lights and
shiny decorations. To prevent
them from pulling on them or
worse, putting them in their
mouths, make sure all lights
and ornaments are out of reach
of children.
*Avoid using lit candles
whenever possible, and never
use them on a Christmas tree.
Keep your tree well-watered;
a wet tree is much less likely to
be ignited by a stray spark or
flame than a dry one.

dress hate crimes.
"Hate crimes are rooted in
one person's refusal to respect
the differences in others,"
said Crist. "Eradicating these
crimes must be the goal of ev-
ery fair-minded citizen."
Local law enforcement agen-
cies throughout Florida report-
ed a total of 130 hate crimes
motivated by the victim's race
or color during 2005, down al-
most one-third from the previ-
ous year's total of 190. Hate
crimes motivated by religion
declined from 41 incidents to
36, while offenses motivated by
the victim's sexual orientation
dropped from 52 to 34. Hate
crimes motivated by ethnicity
or national origin rose slightly
from 51 to 58 incidents.
Hate crime incidents mo-
tivated by race accounted for
exactly half the reported hate
crimes in 2005 (50.0 percent).
A combination of just two
motivation categories, race
and ethnicity/national origin,
accounted for almost three-
quarters (72.3 percent) of all
reported hate crimes in 2005.
The report showed that assaults
against individuals accounted
for just under 41 percent of
all hate crimes, that category's
smallest share since 2001.
Data in the Hate Crimes Re-
port was submitted by local
law enforcement agencies to
Sthe Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, which then pro-
vided it to the Attorney Gener-
al's Office for reporting. Since
1994, the Attorney General's
Office has conducted hate
crimes training seminars for
state and local law enforcement
agencies throughout Florida.
Through the end of the period
covered by the latest annual
report, more than 3,500 law
enforcement personnel from
more than 272 jurisdictions
had received this training.
The Hate Crimes in Florida
Report is prepared each year
pursuant to the Hate Crimes
Reporting Act, section 877.19,
Florida Statutes. The report
summarizes data collected by
local law enforcement agen-
cies and submitted to the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement. Any attempt to
rank or categorize an agency,
county or region based solely
on this report may be mislead-
ing by making it appear that
certain areas have a high num-
ber of hate crimes when in fact
their law enforcement agen-
cies may have different polices
of identifying and reporting
such crimes. The report does
not include unreported crimes
or those that may have been
hate-related but were not clas-
sified as such by the local law
enforcement agency.

Are you as healthy as you
could be? It's important to
make informed food choices
and develop sound eating
and physical activity habits
to stay healthy. The food and
physical activity choices you
make today and everyday
affect your health and how
you feel right now and in the
future, says the American
Dietetic Association (www.
eatright.org). To maintain,
good health, the Association
suggests that you make smart
choices from every food group
to give your body the balanced
nutrition it needs, being sure to
stay within your daily calorie
needs. Exercising regularly is
just as important, which helps
control body weight, promotes
a feeling of well being, and

that are right for you.
Make half your grains
whole: Eat 6 ounces of whole-
grain cereals, breads, crackers,
--rice, or pasta. Substitute a
v':whole-grain product (brown
-rice, bulgur, graham flour,
oai meal, whole-grain corn,
%whole oats, whole rye, whole
x heat. and wild rice) foi a
refined product such as
eating:. whole-wheat :bread
instead of white bread or
brown rice, instead -of white

the whole-grain product for the
refined one, rather than adding
the whole-grain product. Note
that foods labeled with the
words "multi-grain," "stone-
-ground," "100 percent wheat,"
"cracked wheat,"' "seven-
grain," or "bran" are usually
not whole-grain products.
Vary your veggies: Eat
21/2 cups of dark-green veggies
like broccoli, spinach, and
other dark leafy greens; orange
vegetables such as carrots and
sweet potatoes; and dry beans
and peas like pinto beans,
kidney beans, and lentils.
Stock up on frozen vegetables
for quick and easy cooking in
the microwave, buy vegetables
that are easy to prepare, pick
up pre-washed bags of salad
greens and add baby carrots or
grape tomatoes for a salad in
Focus on fruit: Eat a
variety of fruits, and go easy on
fruit juices. Choose 2 cups of
fresh, frozen, canned, or dried
fruit, and keep a bowl of whole
fruit on the table, counter or
in the refrigerator. Buy fresh
fruits in season when they may
be less expensive and at peak
flavor. Consider convenience
when shopping and buy pre-
cut packages of fruit (such as
melon or pineapple chunks)
for a healthy snack in seconds.
Choose packaged fruits that do
not have added sugars.
Get your calcium-rich
foods: Two cups for kids ages 2
to 8, and 3 cups for people ages
9 and up are recommended.
Go low-fat or fat-free when
you choose: milk, yogurt and
other dai. products. If -you
don't or can't consume milk,
choose lactose-free products or
other calcium sources, such as
fortified foods and beverages.
Include milk as a beverage at
meals. If you usually drink
whole milk, gradually switch
to fat-free milk to lower
saturated fat and calories. Try
.reduced-fat (2 percent), then
low-fat (1 percent), and finally.
fat-free (skim). If you drink
cappuccinos or lattes ask
for them with fat-free (skim)
milk. Add fat-free or- low-
fat milk instead of water to
oatmeal and hot cereals. Have
fat-free or low-fat yogurt as a
snack, or use as a dip'for fruits
-or vegetables. Top- casseroles,
soups,- stews, or vegetables
with shredded low-fat cheese.
Go lean with protein::
Choose 51/2 ounces of low-
fat or lean meats and poultry-
and either bake, broil or grill.
The leanest beef cuts include
round steaks. and roasts (round
eye, topmimd, bottom rotmd.
round tip), top loin, top sirloin;
and chuck shoulder and arm
roasts. The leanest pork choices
include pork loin, tenderloin,

:' "" '; '' ~'- .

at least 90 percent lean ground
beef. You may be able to find
,ground beef that is 93 percent
or 95 percent lean. Buy
skinless chicken parts, or take
off the skin before cooking.
Boneless skinless chicken
breasts and turkey cutlets are
the leanest poultry choices.
Choose lean turkey, roast
beef, ham, or low-fat luncheon
meats for sandwiches instead
of luncheon meats with more
fat, such as regular bologna
or salami. Vary your protein
routine choose more fish,
beans, peas, nuts, and seeds.
Find your balance
between food and physical
activity: Be sure to stay within
your daily calorie needs, and
be physically active for at least
30 minutes most days of the
week; about 60 minutes a day
to prevent weight gain; and 60
minutes a day, or most days,
for children and teenagers.
Choose activities that you
enjoy and can do regularly.
Fitting activity into a daily
routine can be easy such
as taking a brisk 10-minute
walk to and from the parking
lot, bus stop, or subway
station. Or, join an exercise
class. Keep it interesting by
trying something -different
on alternate days. What's
important is to be active most
days of the week, and make
it part of a daily routine. For
example, to reach a 30-minute
goal for the day, walk the dog
for 10 minutes before and after
work, and add. a 10-minute

walk at lunchtime. Or, swim 3
times a week and take a yoga
class on the other days. Make
sure to do at least 10 minutes
of the activity at a time; shorter
bursts of activity will not have
the same health benefits. To
be ready anytime, keep some
comfortable clothes and a pair
of walking or running shoes in
the car and at the office.
Know the limits on fats,
sugars, and salt (sodium):

Calhoun County businessmen named Master Loggers

from the Florida Forestry Association
Cobb of Deerpoint Timber Prod-
ucts, and Lonnie Pitts of Mor-
ris Timber Products Inc., have
completed a three-day education-
program designed to train tim-
ber harvesters in safe, efficient
and environmentally sound log-
ging practices. Completion of this
training earned them the industry
designation of Master Logger: a
professional logger with at least
one successful year of operating
Cobb and Pitts return to the
Calhoun County area with im-
proved credentials to offer log-
ging and forestry services in this
growing segment of the local and
state economy. Forestry contrib-
utes $44.2 million to the Calhoun
County economy. Approximately

430 employees, work directly
in the county's forest industry,
which generates a $13.1 million
payroll. Forest products and paper
companies within the state collec-
tively generate $16.6 billion in
manufactured products and create
over 133,000 jobs in local com-
Cobb and Pitts traveled to
Tallahassee, where they partici-
pated in sessions with 15 other
participants. The classes covered
technological innovations in the
logging industry, environmental
management, the changing wood
supply and demands for more
sophisticated business practices.
Lectures included topics on tim-
ber security, endangered species,
planning for forest harvests, busi-
ness finance, wage management,
logging safety, legal affairs and-

the latest in environmental regu-
According to Bob Moore, Log-
ger Education Program Consul-
tant, "the program has as its goals
the enhancement of professional-
ism among loggers, the improve-
ment of the state's quality of life,
the provision of a continuing flow
of forest goods and services and
the protection of environmental
qualities of Florida's forests." To
date, more than 560 loggers have
completed the training and earned
the title of Master Logger.
Forests cover over 16 million
acres in Florida nearly 48%
of the state's total land area. The
Master Logger program is spon-
sored by the Florida Forestry
Association and the Florida Sus-
tainable Forestry Initiative State
Implementation Committee.

From left, Benjamin Cobb and Lonnie Pitts receive their Mas-
ter Logger certifications.

Q: What are soy nuts? Are they
healthful choices?
A: Soy nuts are roasted whole
soybeans. They may be dry-
roasted or oil-roasted. Soy nuts
are available plain, salted, or in a
variety of other flavors. A quarter-
cup serving contains about 194
calories, just a little less than the
same portion of peanuts. Like
many other soy foods, they are
not low-fat, but the fat is almost
all unsaturated; saturated fat con-
tent is very low. That quarter-cup
provides 17 grams of soy protein,
a major portion of the 25 grams
that some studies have shown
helps lower blood cholesterol.
Unsalted soy nuts contain only
a trace of sodium; salted ver-
sions remain reasonable as long
as your portions are controlled,
with about 70 to 120 milligrams
of sodium in a quarter-cup.
Q: I have read conjugated
linoleic acid (CLA) is good for
you. Are whole milk and regular
cheese better choices than low-fat
and non-fat products since they
provide CLA?
A: Conjugated linoleic acid
(CLA) is a particular type of fatty
acid under study for a possible
role in weight control and protec-
tion against cancer and a variety
of other health problems. Dairy
products are a major source of
CLA and because CLA is a fat,
high-fat foods contain more CLA
than their low-fat counterparts.
SSudies of CLA, however, show
mixed results, especially when it
comes to the effects in humans.
Some studies show that CLA
decreases body fat or increases
lean muscle mass. Other studies
show no changes. Laboratory
studies show great potential for
CLA as an inhibitor of at least
some types of canicer. But hu-
man studies of people who did
and did not de\ elop cancer show
conflicting results. The benefits
that researchers have found with
CLA most often correspond to
about 3,000 to 3,400 milligrams
(nig' of CLA per day. One serv-
ing of regular cheese or whole
milk contains only about 50 mg
of CLA. We have little data about
whether CLA could offer benefits
at this low amount. We do know
that two-thirds to one-half of
the fat in those dairy products is
saturated fat, which raises blood
cholesterol and may promote
cancer development. Also, higher
fat content means more calories.
Researchers are looking at ways
to increase CLA content of dairy
products. For now, high-fat dairy
products offer -known disad-
vantages in return for unproven
.Q: Is there any nutritional dif-
ference between green and red
bell peppers?
A: Green bell (or sweet) pep-
pers are simply the less mature
form of red peppers. Both types
of peppers are healthful, contain-
ing some similar nutrients and
the same amount of calories.
Yet red bell peppers generally
contain a higher nutrient con-
tent. For example. both typeswof
pepper are excellent sources of
ihatiidn C, but red ones contain
' mor'e than twice as much, 'with


more than a whole day's sup-
ply in just half a cup. Green and
red bell peppers contain..several
types of carotenoids, a group of
phytochemicals that are powerful
antioxidants. Green peppers sup-
ply some of the carotenoid beta-

carotene, but red peppers supply
almost eight times as much. Red
peppers supply far more of an-
other carotenoid called beta-cryp-
toxanthin. And they supply some
lycopene, a carotenoid not found
in green peppers that may be

linked with lower risk of prostate

peppers are a much better source
of a carotenoid called lutein than
red peppers.
