Rev Henry Miller films a scene in a cell.

Pastor shoots music

video in Liberty Jail
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor -
A n area minister spent some time in the Liberty
County Jail a.couple of weeks ago after
deciding it was the perfect spot to film his own music
video featuring the song, "Friend on the Inside."
Rev. Henry Miller, who has a prison ministry in
Wakulla County, asked to film upstairs in the old
jail in Bristol because it's one of the few in the state
that still has the old-fashioned style cells made of
bars, according to Jail Administrator Capt. Fannie
The video shows Miller sitting in a cell, singing
and strumming a guitar as the camera cuts away to
his two cell mates.
Miller got plenty of help from the Liberty County
Jail staff, Partridge said. The three "inmates"- wore real
jail uniforms with Liberty County Jail written on the
back. They borrowed Sheriff Harrell Wood Re ell's
bible for a scene where the three sit at a table and
talk. Lt. Chad Smith appears in the video as a jailer
delivering mail to the men.
Partridge said if you look carefully at the video,
you'll see Smith give a quick wink during his scene.
After shooting a scene showing a family gathered
around a table for a meal, the crew adjourned for lunch,
but stayed at the table to enjoy the food cooked for
them by the jail staff, said Partridge.
The video is featured on and can
be found by searching for "Friend on the Inside" or
Henry Miller.

Consumers urged to adopt measures to combat fuel thefts

FloridaAgriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson is encouraging
consumers to take precautions to
prevent thefts of fuel from their
While there is no statewide
database detailing the extent of
the problem, anecdotal evidence
is mounting that thieves are

other motor fuels from cars

and parking lots because of the
rising value of the fuel. Gasoline
stations are also increasingly
being targeted by fuel thefts,
according to Bronson's Petroleum
Inspection Bureau and Office of
Agricultural Law Enforcement.
"While Florida and the nation
are working on the development
of alternative fuels and adopting
conservation measures to
ultimately bring down the price
of gasoline, we are nonetheless

record prices for fuel," Bronson

said. "And with filling a gas tank
commonly reaching $50 and even
$75 each fueling, the last thing we
need is for thieves to siphon the
fuel out of our gas tanks."
Toward that end, the
Commissioner is offering the
following tips to prevent a
motorist from being the victim
of fuel thefts:
Consider the purchase a
locking gas cap.
When possible, park your car
in a locked garage.
Park in well-lit areas when

Check the fuel gauge before
parking; report any fuel theft

When pumping fuel at a gas
station, never leave an activated
pump unattended.
If purchasing a new vehicle,
inquire about a locking fuel
Farms and agricultural
operations in general, both
nationally and in Florida, appear
to be victims of increasing
gasoline and diesel thefts also, and
Bronson recommends that such
properties be fenced or gated, and
as well lit when possible.
Nurseries, packinghouses and
agricultural storage areas should
consider installing security
cameras with a tape backup.
Thefts at farming operations
should be reported to local law
enforcement or Bronson's Office

ofAgricultural Law Enforcement
at 1-800-342-5869.
In addition to protecting a
vehicle's fuel from being stolen,
Bronson is also encouraging
consumers to adopt fuel-
conservation measures as a means
of combating skyrocketing fuel
Such measures include
car pooling, using public
transportation when possible,
combining errands to minimize
the number of trips taken in your
vehicle, maintaining a reasonable
speed, using the most economical
grade of gasoline recommended
for your vehicle and keeping tires
properly inflated.

Speeding stop leads to July 4 arrests
A man trying to get through Blountstown a little too quickly on
the Fourth of July was arrested after a deputy clocked him traveling
20 miles over the speed limit during heavy traffic.
Joe E. Kirkland, 26, was traveling east at what appeared to be a high
rate of speed when he caught the attention of Deputy Bliss Moreau.
Kirkland's white SUV was traveling 55 mph in a 35 mph zone,
according to the deputy's report.
Moreau pulled the vehicle over, approached the driver and noted
the strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from the driver's window
and saw that Kirkland's eyes were bloodshot and watery.
After issuing a written warning for speed, the deputy asked if
Kirkland had anything illegal in the vehicle. The driver hesitated
and then replied, "There is a joint in a cigarette pack between the
Kirkland and his passenger; Dawn Ceurvels, 40, both of
Youngstown, were asked to step out of the vehicle as the deputy took
a look inside. He found a cigarette pack that held two rolled joints of
marijuana and three burnt marijuana butts. A glass pipe was found
in the vehicle's center console. Bits of loose marijuana, known as
"shake" was found scattered throughout the vehicle.
Inside some luggage, the deputy found a sandwich bag that held
13 grams of marijuana, two packs of rolling papers and a pair of
Kirkland and his passenger were taken into custody. Both were
charged with'possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and

Royal Crown bag in the driver's door that held a Skoal can that
contained an estimated five grams of marijuana. A burnt marijuana

on my dad's side were Tommy and
Louise Carpenter. They owned Car-
penter's Supermarket that later be-
came Hagler's IGA which was located
where the Memorial Park is located in
the center of Blountstown. After sell-
ing the grocery store to Dalton Hagler,
they opened a used car lot across
from the new courthouse and had Car-
penter's Steak House on Highway 20
West, where the county fair was held
annually. On my mother's side were
Ross Homer and Jessie Grantham
Bateman of Bristol. Both worked with
Liberty County, Homer was a driver
and Jessie with the jail.
My father is Jerry Carpenter, who
took over the car lot in the late seven-
ties and the skating rink in the early
seventies. My mother is Gwynn Car-
penter who worked for the Calhoun
County School System before relo-
cating to Tallahassee arid became
Assistant Vice-President and Branch
Manager with Sun Federal Savings
and Loan.
They had five boys, Gerald, who
was most recently owner of Nicholson
Farm House Restaurant in Havana;
Darryl, who renovated many of your
homes after the flood in the late nine-
ties; me; and the twins, both of which
are volunteers with the Tallahassee
Police Department, Danny, formerly
with the Lowes Corporation, now with
Romac Lumber and Dennis, owner of
two Tropical Smoothie Caf6s in the
Tallahassee Mall and on the campus
of Tallahassee Community College,
Dennis also served for eight years as

President of the Florida Sheriffs Boy's
Ranch Alumni Association.
My father remarried Laura Ann
Schwendeman, many of you remem-
ber her from the health department as
Laura Carpenter where she worked
for 14 years. They had one son, my
youngest brother Jerry, who has
worked with many of you in the dredg-
ing business.
I was born and raised here in Cal-
houn County, graduating from Blount-
stown in 1980. I1 bagged many of your
groceries or got your treats from the
deli at Hagler's IGA where I worked
from my 8th grade summer until grad-
uating 12th grade. My brothers and
I sang Gospel music all across the
southeast and may have sung at your
church homecoming or dinners on the
ground services.
In 10th grade, I was elected to be
the first Florida State Treasurer for the
Vocational Industrial Clubs of America
from Blountstown and was later elect-
ed by the state officers to serve as the
first national delegate from this area.
At 18, I was hired by the Gator
Shop, a clothing store, becoming the
youngest store manager where I en-
joyed much success. I worked briefly
with the HUD program under the late
C.J. Roberts, before moving to Augus-
ta to work at Plant Vogtle, a nuclear
power site. I traveled with my father
and brother Darryl, along with many of
our neighbors here in Calhoun County
to work as union carpenters.
I gained employment with Williams
Service Group, a construction con-
tractor and quickly rose through the
ranks to become the Company Safety
Officer for their industrial branch. My
responsibilities there included first aid
and emergency response. I was the
Chief Investigating Officer for acci-
dents, theft, insurance fraud and the
prevention and testing for illegal drug
use. I also dealt directly with the Oc-
cupational Safety and Health Admin-
istration (OSHA), Environmental Pro-
tection Agency (EPA), Department of
Environmental Regulation (DER), and

Worker's Compensation in several
states. I was responsible for a work
force of up to 187 men and women. I
am no stranger to a courtroom deal-
ing with both civil and criminal law.
When I was between projects with
Williams, I invested in real estate and
managed my own company, Carpen-
ter's Properties, where I specialized
in home owner financing which is go-
ing strong today.
As a native of Calhoun County, I
am the right man at the right time for
your sheriff. With 23 years of admin-
istrative and managerial experience,
I am uniquely qualified to provide
strong ethical leadership and unwav-
ering accountability. My experience in
finance, along with my relationships
with federal and state agencies give
me unrivaled insight to gain grants
and deferred interest loans to benefit
our Sheriff's Department and the en-
tire Calhoun County community.
I will provide a Sheriff's Depart-
ment that excels in professionalism,
service and respect and one that rep-
resents every citizen equally regard-
less of age, race or social status.
I have been a champion for hon-
esty, integrity and ethics my entire
professional life and I'm anxious to
give back to the community, school
system, neighbors and friends who
gave so much to me.
If you have any comments or ques-
tions about my candidacy, or if you
are interested in supporting me by
displaying signs in your yard or busi-
ness or with magnets for your vehi-
cle, please call me at (850) 674-5719
or email me at welikemike2008@ I look forward to meeting
each of you personally in the coming
I am Michael Carpenter Candidate
for Calhoun County Sheriff and I ask
for your vote and support on Novem-
ber 4th. Thank you for your time and
"I can do all things through Christ
who strengthens me."

Putting a spin on the war news

he First Amendment reads, "Con-
I gress shall make no law respecting
S* an establishment of religion, or prohibit-
ing the free exercise thereof; or abridging
the freedom of speech, or of the press, or
the right of the people peaceably to as-
semble, and to petition the Government
for a redress of grievances."
-9 q Patrick Henry, revolutionary
w"U (1736-1799) said, "The liberties ofa peo-
9 ple never were, nor ever will be, secure
. when the transactions of their rulers may
be concealed from them." (Underlines
bdo m added by author for emphasis)
__ a s The news media coverage of the Iraq
and Afghanistan Wars has been and is
being abridged because the Bush admin-
istration is censoring the news media's
^ coverage of the war.
The irony of this is that the nation just
celebrated the Fourth of July with many
s* *a speeches from politicians and people
q about our independence and freedoms
S, which presumably include freedom of the
a press. Ever since the Vietnam War, the
U.S. government spins war news in their
best interest. The basic news on the wars
in the Middle East is, "Don't worry, be
happy, we are winning."
As I have written many times, war is a
* deadly business. Soldiers, civilians, men,
women and children are killed or wound-
ed. Real war is not what you see in a John
Sa Wayne movie. People die and the results
P e ^ are everlasting.
On June 26, 2008, the news media
reported that three Marines were attend-
ing a council meeting with local tribal
__ ~ sheikhs in the town of Fallujah, Iraq. A
suicide bomber attacked the meeting kill-
ing the three Marines, two interpreters
S and 20 Iraqis.
According to a piece in Inter Press Ser-
vice by Dahr Jamail, Zoriah Miller was
a photojournalist embedded with the Ma-
rines. Miller was on patrol with the Ma-
rines a couple of blocks from the meeting
place. When the Marine patrol heard the
explosion they and Miller ran to the scene
of the bombing. Miller did what a pho-
tojournalist does; he took photographs of
the carnage.

Jerry Cox is a retired military
officerand writer with an extensive
background in domestic and
foreign policy issues. He lives in
Okaloosa County.

Miller showed the photographs of
the dead Marines to the Marines that he
worked with to make sure that he wasn't
using photographs that were too graphic.
The Marines in the unit were OK with
it, and on the fourth day after the attack,
-Miller posted the photographs on his blog
and reported the details. That got the at-
tention of the Marine brass, and Miller
was removed from Iraq for photograph-
ing and reporting on this incident.
The military leadership believes that
the news media caused America to lose
the war in Vietnam. When you read ac-
counts of the Vietnam War from journal-
ist like Pulitzer Prize-winning David Hal-
berstam, they were giving straight talk to
the American people about how the Ken-
nedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations
were conducting the war. Photojournalist
provided graphic photographs and televi-
sion coverage of the war.
The news media did not cause America
to lose the Vietnam War, but the cover-
age of the war, particularly the television
footage of the killed or wounded soldiers
and Marines, caused the American people
to say, "Enough." President Nixon rec-
ognized the futility of continuing the war
and ended it.
Because the military brass believes
that journalists caused the loss of the
Vietnam War, the Department of Defense
established rules for journalists in the war
zone which, in my view,.is censorship. In *
WWII, Ernie Pyle lived with the soldiers
and wrote about what he saw. There are
modern day Ernie Pyles in Iraq embed-
ded with the troops, but they don't report
what they see. They report what the mili-
tary lets them report.

The Bush administration does not want
the American people to see what is hap-
pening in Iraq and Afghanistan. The news
media reports that a suicide bombing oc-
curred, people were killed, but there are
few, if any, pictures, no follow up. Much
like the waning days of the Vietnam War,
reports from Iraq are that we killed some
of them, they killed some of us, the insur-
gents are on the run, and there is a light at
the end of the tunnel.
The news media cannot take photo-
graphs of dead soldiers and Marines.
Miller being booted out of Iraq is an ex-
ample of what happens if a journalist vio-
lates the DoD's censorship rule. The news
media can't take photographs of caskets
arriving at Dover AFB, Delaware. The
news media can't cover burial ceremo-
nies for those killed in the war. However,
we do see pictures and hear some of the
stories of those that were wounded. But
the spin is that they were not wounded
in vain.,They were protecting our "free-
While I was writing this piece, Fox
News aired a segment on the news me-
dia's coverage of the war. Fox's "fair and
balanced" reporting was that the main
stream media was biased against the war,
John McCain and Bush because they nev-
er report the successes of the war and that
the U.S. is winning the war on terrorism.
The administration's censorship of the
Iraq War has been successful. The Pew
Research Center reported on March 12,
2008 that only 28% of U.S. adults knew
that approximately 4,000 Americans had
died in the Iraq War.
But the war goes on. The news media
reported that in Afghanistan on Sunday,
July 6, 2008, an American airstrike killed
27 Afghanis attending a wedding, 25 of
which were women and children, includ-
ing the bride. The news report stated that
coalition officials disputed the report,
saying that only militants were killed and
that there was no evidence of women and
children being killed.
I dropped a lot of bombs during the
Vietnam War. Bombs have no conscience.
They kill the enemy and the innocent.

This is an open letter of thanks
to Majqr Donnie Conyers of
the Liberty County Sheriff's
My wife Janice and I had just
returned home from a lengthy
stay at the Hospital in Dothan,
AL. Janice was in the intensive
care unit for eight days, She had
undergone open heart surgery.
Until the day I put her in the car
to come home and packed her in
pillows did I ever give much of a
thought of just how many idiots
there really are on the road, but,
by the grace of God we made it!
The doctors gave Janice enough
pain medication to make the trip.
On arrival at home in Bristol I
was ready to kiss the ground.
It was a delicate procedure
getting Janice from the car to
the house she was fine...I was a
nervous wreck!
The next morning there was
a knock on the door and much
to my surprise it was Major
Conyers asking if there was
anything he could do to help as

he had just heard of my wife's
surgery...he was concerned that
the emergency services unit be
informed just in case we were
to have to leave under adverse
conditions (storms), etc., given
the time of year.
His caring gave me and Janice
comfort in knowing if the worst
were to take place someone was
aware of the situation. I feel
certain that Major Conyers and
anyone of deputies would do the
same for any resident of Liberty
under similar conditions and
circumstance. He reflects great
pride and professionalism on
himself, his department and his

Pray for the Advancement
of the Gospel
Text: Ephesians 6:19 & 20
According to Robert J. Morgan,
in 1727, Count Nicholas Ludwig
von Zinzendorf allowed Christian
exiles from Bohemia and Moravia
to establish a community on his es-
tate in Germany. Twenty-four men
and twenty four women committed
themselves to spend an hour each
day to "pray in sequence around
the clock." It wasn't long before
many others joined in the unceas-
ing 24 hour a day prayer. Days
grew into weeks. Weeks grew into
.months. Months grew into years.
"It was a prayer meeting that last-
ed over one hundred years."
Six months into the prayer vigil,
twenty six Moravians volunteered
to reach others for Christ in the
West Indies, Greenland, Turkey,
and Lapland. During the first two
years, seventy Moravian mission-
aries went out. By the time Wil-
liam Carey, the "Father of Modern
Missions" came along in 1793,
over three hundred Moravian mis-
sionaries had "already gone to
the ends of the earth. The prayer
meeting indirectly ignited the Great
Awakening that swept through Eu-
rope and America lasting one hun-
dred years. The results will last for
an eternity."
Prayer is a powerful thing. It.
is our opportunity to join God in
the work He is already doing of
reaching the entire world with the
Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through
prayer, we conquer the enemy
in the spiritual battle we wage.
Through prayer, we can join God
in His work for strengthening oth-
ers who are on the front lines ad-
vancing the Gospel in heathen
lands where the Gospel has never
been heard. "Daniel would rather
spend a night with the lions than
miss a day in prayer."

The Lives of Forehand and

Eunice Hazel Bateman Rankin

Written by Vance Bateman
Forehand and Eunice lived
in Bristol, FL most of their life.
Forehand began raising laying
hens as a project in agriculture
class at Liberty County High
He started out with fifty chicks
and increased that number over
the years to fifty thousand, mak-
ing it his career for life. His farm
was about a mile south of Bristol
on Highway 12 with there being
ten chicken houses, along with
a feed house, brooder house and
their home. Later Forehand in-
stalled individual cages for his
hens with automated feed and
water system. The hen'would
lay an egg and it would roll out
of the cage for easy gathering. In
that period of time this was very
high tech.
Most of his eggs were sold on
the Miami market, to Tyndall Air
Force Base and counties in North
Florida. He had about 30 acres of
land. under cultivation, growing
mostly corn.
Later he added a FRM Feed
Store selling all kinds of feed to
local farmers. Feed then came in
printed cloth sacks and you could
buy them from the chicken farm
paying thirty-five cents per sack
or three for a dollar. Folks used
them to make skirts, dresses,
shirts, napkins and underclothes.
One of his problems on the
farm was folks stealing his chick-

Forehand Rankin is shown above with
his wife, Eunice, and their daughter,
Linda Lou Rankin Duncan.

Forehand Rankin was born February 5, 1922 and died
March 22, 1960 He was the second of six children born to
Alto Thomas and Nettie Forehand Rankin. Forehand mar-
ried Eunice Hazel Bateman (b-03/20/1922)-(d-08/09/1992)
on April.20, 1940. She was the third of five children born to
George Dewey Sr. and Hazel Eunice Bateman). Forehand and
Eunice had one child named Linda Lou (09/21/1943). Linda
married Daniel B. Duncan (b-06/16/1942) on February 16,
1963 and they had three children: John, Mark and Scott.

ens. In the world today it is doubtful that your hens would
be in danger of theft but back then there were quite a few "
Snuffy Smiths" in the area.
Forehand Rankin and family were named "Top Out-
standing Farm Family" of Liberty County in 1956.

Forehand was drafted into the
Army during WW II and served
in the Normandy and Sicily in-
vasions. He was wounded and
awarded the Combat Infantry
Badge, the Purple Heart, the
Distinguished Unit Citation and
later the Bronze Star.
His daughter Linda was born
a few months after he reported
for duty and was two years of
age before he could return to
see her. Forehand stated that
in his bus trip back he couldn't
really believe he was coming
home until the bus crossed the
Telogia Creek Bridge.
. Forehand was gifted in play-
ing basketball, and in high
school he was one of the bet-
ter players of that era. Another
of his talents was that he could
play the guitar and blow the
harp real well at the same time
making beautiful music.
Eunice was a homemaker,
wife and mother plus helped out
as needed on the farm through-
out the years.
In 1960, at age thirty-nine af-
ter spending nearly three years
serving in WW II plus making
it through two invasions, Fore-
hand was accidently killed. He
was riding his farm tractor in a
collision with a truck in front of
his home on Highway 12, end-
ing the life of a hard working
extraordinary good man. Eunice
lived until age 71 without mar-

trying again, spending her time enjoying her grandchil-
dren .
Forehand and Eunice are at rest with most of their
ancestors in Lake Mystic Cemetery in Liberty County.

Jacob. Tyreek Sumner then hit a double that scored
Gabe and Kevon. Mikel Engram then added another
single, but the inning ended with 2 runners on base.
Calhoun County cut in the Bushnell lead 8-5. Some
tough defense by the Calhoun team held Bushnell
scoreless in the bottom of the 5th. The Calhoun
team had one more chance to mount a comeback.
Jacob Yon started the 6th inning with a single. Gabe
McClellan then hit a deep fly ball over the left
fielder's head to advance to second and score Jacob.
The Calhoun bats caught fire and Kevan Godwin,
Kyle Skipper, Tyreek Sumner, Mikel Engram,

Calhoun All-stars a 10-8 lead. Bushnell started the
bottom of the inning with their first 2 batters getting
hits, but the next batter struck out and Tucker Jordan

Jordan for his excellent defensive play. The win
propelled the Calhoun All-stars to the AA State
Championship Game for rematch against West
The Calhoun County Team knew they would
have to play error free ball to beat West Seminole
who entered the Finals undefeated. West Seminole
scored 4 runs In the 1st inning but were held
scoreless for the next 2 innings. The Calhoun Team
was unable to string together enough hits to score
through the first 3 innings. In the top of the 4th
West Seminole added 2 more runs. The Calhoun
Team put together solid hits against the stingy
West Seminole defense in the bottom of the 4th.
Tucker Jordan, Jace White, and Kyle Skipper had
hits. Controversy then ensued as Tyreek Sumner
hit a fly ball to the outfield to advance the runners,
but the home plate umpire called no pitch when
the machine pitched the ball. He felt the ball was
coming in too high and thought it would be an
unhittable pitch. He said that once he made the
call that it was a dead ball and runners had to
return to their original positions.
Unfortunately, Tyreek wound up getting out
and the inning ended. West Seminole scored
2 runs in the 5th and one in the 6th to win the
game. The Calhoun Team was not allowed to
bat In the .6th inning because of a AA rule that
does not allow a team to score more than 8 runs
per inning. Since they were down 9-0 the game
was over.
The loss in the AA Finals was disappointing,
but what a run! This Calhoun County team was
made upof all-stars from 4 teams. Many of the
teams In this tournament drew their players from
leagues that played 11 months out of the year
and leagues with an excess of 20 teams. The
dedication of the coaches, players, and parents
made this a special team. A big thank you goes
out to the community for their donations and
sponsorships that allowed this team to travel
to state!

Man arrested for

possessing 133

alligator eggs
Just a few miles from where Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
biologists watched licensed and permitted
alligator farmers legitimately collect eggs
from alligator nests in the wild Everglades, a
Lee County man was arrested for taking eggs
On July 1, FWC Officers Clinton Bean and
Joshua Caraker were on routine patrol along
Alligator Alley in Collier County, when they
noticed a small boat on the bank of the canal.
Officers watched the boat operator make stops
along the canal and walk into the woods. As
the boat approached the officers, the officers
detected a marijuana odor and watched as the
man picked up two white, five-gallon buckets.
The officers stopped 49-year old Gerald R.
Clemons of Fort Myers and looked inside his
buckets. The buckets had dirt inside them and
eggs on top.
Clemons said he collected more than 100
alligator eggs that day, removing the eggs from
at least 10 different nests, and marking them
to preserve their viability. Officers Bean and
Caraker counted 133 alligator eggs in Clemons'
Clemons was arrested and charged with
possession of 133 American alligator eggs
and possession of marijuana and drug
According to the FWC, 130 of the 133 seized
alligator eggs were donated to Gatorama, an
alligator farm in Palmdale. Two eggs were
retained as evidence, and one egg was sent for
forensic testing.


Homeowners warned to check

out termite contracts carefully

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging homeowners
to take the time to investigate and educate
themselves about pest control companies they
may be considering for termite protection.
His warning comes as some areas of the
state are experiencing drywood termite
While subterranean termites cause the
majority of damage to homes, drywood
termites can also be 'destructive. Since
drywood termites do not need to maintain
contact with the soil, they should be treated
by tent fumigation or liquid treatments
applied directly to the. infested lumber.
Licensed pest management professionals
have the expertise to inspect buildings and
treat them to prevent an infestation or provide
treatment when the insects are found.
Termite control companies are required to
provide written contracts before treating for
termites and to clearly inform customers as
to what type of termites their contract covers
subterranean or drywood, or both.
Homeowners also need to read the fine
print and find out exactly what the contract
covers. The contract should specify what the
company will do to protect your home and
whether they will treat, re-treat, or repair any

The Florida Department of Agriculture

licenses pest control companies and conducts
regular inspections to ensure the businesses

Most pest control operations in Florida are
licensed and have the proper training. But
there are unlicensed companies in operation,

conducts sweeps throughout the state to find
and shut down illegal operators who may put
people in danger by misusing chemicals.

We also paused to remember
two of our own that have gone
on to meet the Lord: Ranger

them, they always bring smiles
to our faces and encouragement
to face the future.

Periodic southern pine beetle outbreaks in Florida have resulted
in millions of cubic feet of pine timber killed on thousands of acres.
Forest management practices, such as thinning, prescribed burning,
other competition control, and use of less-susceptible pine species
can improve the health of pine stands and decrease their likelihood
of developing southern pine beetle infestations.
The program offers up to 50 percent cost reimbursement for pre-
commercial thinning, prescribed burning and mechanical underbrush
treatments in existing pine stands, and a $50-per-acre incentive
payment for landowners who conduct a first pulpwood thinning.
In addition, landowners may apply to receive up to 50 percent
reimbursement for the cost of longleaf seedlings and $25 per acre in
planting cost assistance to establish a longleaf pine plantation. The
program is limited to 44 northern Florida counties located within
the range of the southern pine beetle. Qualified landowners may
apply for up to two approved practices per year. The minimum tract
size requirement is 10 acres and funding requests may.not exceed
For an application and more information on program requirements
and procedures, forest landowners can visit their local Division of
Forestry office or contact the county forester office in their area
by visiting Applications will be available
beginning July 30 and will be evaluated on a first-received, first-
served basis. The program is supported through temporary grants
from the USDA Forest Service and will be offered only as long as
funding is available.

Keep safe by understanding about tomato contamination

Recent outbreaks of
salmonellosis associated with the
consumption of fresh tomatoes
caused many restaurants to
remove raw tomatoes from their
menus. In order to keep your
family safe, the University of
Florida answers some of your
Q. How does Salmonella and
other pathogens contaminate
tomatoes and other produce?
There is no quick answer to
this question. Scientists are still
debating the most likely routes
of contamination. It is possible
for produce to be contaminated at
various stages, including during
the growing, harvesting, cleaning,
washing and distribution. In the
field, fruits and vegetables can
be contaminated by coming in
contact with animal manure or
poultry litter that was improperly
composted. Cross-contamination
in retail stores and during
food preparation at home and
in restaurants has also been

Farmers' markets get their
tomatoes from a variety of sources
that are not necessarily limited to
local farms. These other sources
may include the same ones that
provided the tomatoes implicated
in the Salmonella outbreak.
Consumers should ask retailers
at farmers' markets what the
sources of their tomatoes are, and
frequently check FDA updates at
hottopics/tomatoes.html for states
and countries not associated with
the outbreak.
Q. During this outbreak, is
it safer to eat locally grown
Consumers should confirm
with their retailers the sources of
tomatoes advertised as "locally
grown." Consumers also are
reminded that cherry tomatoes,
grape tomatoes, and tomatoes
with the vine still attached are
not implicated in this outbreak,
regardless of where they were
grown, harvested, or packed.
Tomatoes grown at home also are
not implicated in the outbreak.

lightly cooked, etc) should be
stored refrigerated and only for a
limited time.
5) Clean your refrigerator.
Regularly wipe refrigerator
shelves and crispers with a
household cleaner.
6) Washing produce is an
important way to remove some
contamination on the surface of
fruits and vegetables. Thoroughly
washing produce in warm water
with common detergents reduces,
but does completely eliminate
bacteria on surfaces of tomatoes.
Fruits and vegetables should be
washed under clean, running
warm water. Do not wash your
vegetables or fruits in bleach
solutions as they are notconsidered
safe for consumption.
Wash fruits and vegetables
immediately prior to eating them.
In terms of produce with rough
surfaces, such as strawberries,
broccoli and cauliflower, washing
is only slightly effective in
removing pathogens.
7) When slicing tomatoes,
cut out the stem scar, the corky
area on top of a tomato fruit
that was attached to the stem.
Studies show that the stem scar
can contains higher numbers of
8) When preparing fruits
and vegetables at home, avoid
cross-contamination of fruits and
vegetables from meats, poultry,

and seafood, as well as from
vegetables (such as potatoes and
leeks) and cucurbits (melons,
squash) that are normally soiled.

1) When selecting fruits and
vegetables at the market, do
not pick damaged produce.
Additionally, avoid selecting
fruits and vegetables that are too
soft or have translucent skin.
2) Store your produce dry and
in a cool place. While storing
produce at cooler temperatures
does not consistently reduce
potential contamination, it may
help prevent any pathogens that
may already be present from
multiplying to levels more likely
to be dangerous to humans.
3) Never soak vegetables in
water. Soaking fresh vegetables
in water may increase the chance
that any bacteria present on the
surface of the vegetable will
infiltrate into the inner tissues.

Hello citizens of Liberty. County. My
name is Joan Johnson Wright. I am a can-
didate for the office of Tax Collector. My
husband Michael and I have been together
for almost 19 years. We have two beauti-
ful children, Madison and Mason. Madison
is seven years old and Mason is three. My
parents are Jimmy Johnson and Janice
Kever Johnson, both of Bristol. My grand-
parents are Lucille Johnson and the late
Edison Johnson, both of Bristol and the
late Cleve and Ellie Mae Kever of Telogia.
I began serving the citizens of Liberty
County in 1990 working for retired Tax Col-
lector, Mr. Lester W. Summers. I then con-
tinued under the current Tax Collector, Mrs.
Carol K. Strickland. I have accumulated
10 years of experience under their quality
leadership in the-Liberty County Tax Col-
lector's Office.
While working in the office I attended
college at night. I earned an Associate in
Arts degree from Tallahassee Community
College. Additionally, I earned both a Bach-
elor's and Master's degree in education




from Florida State University.
I currently teach first grade at W.R.
Tolar School in Bristol. I spent five years
teaching at Hosford School. I have
taught many of your children over the
years and have thoroughly enjoyed ev-
ery minute of teaching. However, being
elected Tax Collector has been an as-
piration of mine I have had since the
beginning. I always got pleasure from

watching Mr. Summers and Mrs. Strick-
land serve in this office and knew this was
a path I would one day take. Running for
this office was not a decision that I made
in the past year.
I have always served the public in a
nice, polite and efficient way. I believe that
I am the most qualified, educated, experi-
enced and capable person for this office.
I am the friendly face you were used to
seeing on Saturdays and I was always
available after hours. These are not po-
litical pledges, but a level of service that
many of you personally know that I can be
relied on for and I will continue if elected
Tax -Collector. I have served the citizens
of Liberty County my entire adult life and
would like to continue this service by be-
ing your next Tax Collector. I look forward
to meeting with each and every one of
you over the next few months. Your sup-
port will truly be greatly appreciated and
never forgotten. -
Thank you!!

Tallahassee Memorial Rehabilitation Ctr. provides

breakthrough technology for neurological patients
TALLAHASSEE Imagine technology so advanced that it may help stroke and
other neurological patients to regain lost mobility and also may enable them to achieve
greater independence than they believed to be possible. The Tallahassee Memorial
Rehabilitation Center is among the first in the country to offer this breakthrough
therapy, called the NESS L300TM neuro- rehabilitation system and will serve as a
regional evaluation and treatment site for patients interested in trying out the new
Central nervous system injuries often result in foot drop-leading to instability
and difficulty walking. The NESS L300TM is a revolution in Functional Electrical
Stimulation (FES) technology, designed to help patients experiencing foot drop to
regain mobility and help "normalize" walking and gait. It uses wireless communication
to "talk" to its.components, eliminating cumbersome wires and allowing the clinician
the ability to fine-tune settings while the patient is actually walking.
This user-friendly system is appropriate for a broad range of conditions, including
stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and incomplete
spinal cord injury.
Sheree Porter, Rehab Program Manager at Tallahassee Memorial's Rehabilitation
Center says the L300 compliments and accelerates traditional therapy. "We have
successfully integrated this technology into both our acute rehabilitation program and
into our outpatient setting," says Porter. "By adopting this technology as a standard of
care, we can maximize functional rehabilitation for our patients with foot drop."
The addition of the L300 adds to the range of therapies offered by Tallahassee
Memorial and follows introduction of the NESS H200TM, another neuro-rehabilitation
technology designed to advance upper extremity rehabilitation which is has been
available at the Rehabilitation Center since 2006. Tallahassee Memorial was the first
hospital in the area to acquire these devices.
