together for the common good of
flow in a consumption based economy
is disrupted, the effect ripples through
aHl of America.
With a shrinking economy, revenues
to local, state and federal governments
are reduced. Most of the states have
budget deficit issues. Some 22 state
governments have-serious budget tiefi-
cits. All states except Viermont are re-
quired to balance their budgets, so 49
of the 50 states have to balance their budgets.rTo do
so, the states either increase taxes or reduce cost by
Governments at all levels must become fiscally re-
sponsible. Amlerica must get back on a pay as we go
plan. Continuing to borrow money as we have for the
past eight years is not the answer.
Tied in with thie fiscal problems that the country
faces is America's foreign policy. Spending $10 bil-
lion per month in Iraq and Afghanistan is a major fac-
tor in America's deficit spending.
The new president must present his plan for Amer-
ica's involvement in the Middle Easts Will America
keep military forces in Iraq? If so, be upfront with the
American people and say so. Tell them the expected
cost in money and soldiers. Tell them what "winning
the war means."
Is America going to put more military personnel in
Afghanistan to defeat the Taliban and establish a gov-
ernment that serves the people of Afghanistan? If so,
then' tell the American people the plan. Tell them the
expected cost in money and soldiers.
Whomever the new president is, whether it be John
McCain or Barack Obama, I hope that his plan is a
plan for America's future, a plan that all of us can sup-
this country. It is time to end the political divisiveness
that has such a debilitating effect on' the American

Health Fair Saturday, new
equipment is arriving soon
Let me give you some updates
CALHOUN-LIBERTY on things going on at your local
First, don't miss our initial
Corner Annual Health Fair/Fall Festival
this Saturday at the hospital
CLH Adinistato rom8 a~m. -2p.m. We hope
S/to have a great turnout. Bring
your kids and grandkids. There
will be lots of free fun things for them to do and you can get
lots of valuable medical tests for free or a small fee.
There will be inflatable rides for the kids, free food, many
informational booths and just a fun and. "healthy" time for all.
We'll conduct the tests inside even if the weather does not
cooperate, but we hope we have a beautiful day and a great
turnout. We also will be glad to provide a tour of the hospital
if anyone wishes to do so.. If you've not seen it in awhile, you
might not recognize it!
We are so thankful, especially as we enter the Thanksgiv-
ing and holiday season for the several generous donations that
have been made to the hospital recently. As a not-for-profit or-
ganization, all such gifts are fully tax deductible to the donor.
And we're putting all of them to good use to further upgrade
the hospital. Our next big project will be to completely reno-.
vate our inpatient nursing station.
Several new pieces of equipment will be arriving soon as
I've discussed before. Let me update you on that also. We
will have a new machine for taking x-ray films. Also, we will
be getting a new portable radiology unit as well as a state-
of-the art ultrasound machine. It will even be able to perform
echocardiograms and.we are considering establishing a clinic
to conduct these type tests.
We'll be getting new beds also. Some will be the type that
can weigh the patient while he or she is in it! We'll soon install
all new T~is in the inpatient rooms to go along with a new wide
screen TV in the main 18obby.
Our pharmacy services will be greatly upgraded with an au-
tomatic dispensing unit to improve the safety and efficiency of
this critical function for our itipatients. We recently installed a
similar one in the Emergency Room.
Our new chapel, adopted by the Chamber Board, will soon
be ready. They've done a great job and it is a nice, serene place
for all to worship or just meditate. We give a big thanks to
We'll soon start on a new registration -area in the main lob-
by. We've gotten really busy and it can sometimes get pretty
crowded. This should help with our patient flow.
And that flow seems to be getting busier and busier! Sep-
ternber was the busiest month since the Association got the
hospital back almost three years ago. We averaged double th~e
number of inpatients we did last year. And the outpatient work-
load~is increasing also. We had over 700 patients seen in the
Emergency Room and performed over 200 CAT Scans. So
things are really staying busy!
I often say, I don't want anyone to be sick, but when they
are, we hope they will use us for the services we provide. More
and more of you are doing so.
I'm receiving lots of compliments on the hospital and more
iniportantly, the care we're providing. And most of those com-
pliments ~mention the courteous and compassionate manner
and high quality of that care. We've worked hard on this and
it's paying off -
We have a great staff and some super doctors. All are highly
professional, caring individuals, working together as a super
team! I'm very proud of all of them and thankful for the work
they are doing. They are all top notch!
rAnd I honestly feel this is the main reason more of you are
using us for your health care needs. Updated rooms and new
equipment are nice, but the real key is the care being provided
by these individuals.
So, we are on the move and working hard to better serve
you. Hope to see you Saturday!
Give me a call ifyou have any questions on the above or on
anything about the hospital at 674-5411, ext 206.

Apalachicola Creek Indians
Chief William John Blount
was the first offive Apalachicola
Chiefs to agree to go west after
the 1830 Indian Removal Act.
At the urging of old friend Sam
Houston,,Chief Blount and Davy
signed the Blount Band Treaty in
the Territorial Governor's home
in Tallahassee, Florida. Houston
was promising better times in
Texas for the Florida Indians. But,
his plan was to merge the Blount
Indians with the Coushatta tribe
that was under the leadership
of Chief: Red Shoes, Blount's
uncle. Houston's goal was 'to
increase protection for East.Texas
borders during the battle for Texas
Chief Blount signed the Blount
Band treaty of 1832 and.agreed
to take his 246 members to Texas
but did not leave the panhandle
of Florida until March of 1834.
Deaths, disease, and desertions
reduced the Blount band to less
than 200 before they finally
departed from Port St. Joe for

encampment, Blount and Davy
found less than 100 members still
waiting. Many of these were sick
and all were terribly frightened.
Blount himself was ill with
signs of cholera contracted in
prison. Nevertheless, he gathered
the remnant stragglers.of his
Band and set off on foot across
the Louisiana Plaquemines
for Texas. Pushing hard, the
emigrants crossed the Sabine
River into in East Texas at the end
ofApril 1834. Blount died shortly
thereafter with cholera the most
likely cause. Tribal oral history
has retold the cause of death as a
church chore to perform. Since the Harrell family and oth-
er families around the church raised hogs, dogs and billy
goats, many of the animals would crawl under the church
(which was originally built on a peer and beam structure) in
order to get into the cooler dirt.
That meant Maxwell had to go into the church each Sun-
day morning and disinfect it so that patrons would not be
disturbed by fleas and other insects while the preacher was
giving his sermon.
The family would kill seven or eight hogs each year,
placing the meat in the smokehouse located near the home:
Catherine had every piece of meat accounted for and planned
out. It was a common occurrence for some select pieces
of meat to turn up missing, most likely taken by stranger?
passing through and in need of a meal.
`Tragedy struck the family in 1932 when Jabie died from
internal injuries after he was hurt playing football for Lib-
erty County High School. After his death, Catherine forbid
any more of her children from playing the sport.
Maxwell bought the family homestead in 1943 from the
family, thereby keeping it in the Harrell name to this day.
The family has owned the same property for nearly 100

To the editor: .
As the pastor of a local church, I am writifig this
response to the letter printed last week in regards to
Amendment 2. As ybou know, by this time the election
has already decided if Amendment 2 has now become
part of our state constitution; however, I felt that
the general public deserve a response to last week's
Amendment 2 is a constitutional amendment that
will protect and define marriage in our state. Although
we have laws in Florida (Florida Defense of Miarriage
Act that passed in 1997), we need these laws in our
constitution. Liberal judges could overturn a law that
is in effect; however, no court in the state of Florida
can legalize homosexual marriage if it is in our state
constitution. This amendment is not designed to take
away visiting rights in hospitals or keep- unmarried
couples from owning property (since there are no laws
concerning ownership and marriage). This is an attempt
to keep marriage in the state of Florida between one
man and one woman.
As a pastor, my church did participate in "Stand for
Marriage Sunday" and I did preacdh from the BIBLE.
what scripture has to say about the sanctity of marriage.
It is unfortunate that many people in our communities
no longer view marriage as sacred covenant; however,
tha Jeu danthrmde tcurego cdaedminp! stta pso
on the members of my congregation. I did however
read scriptures and tell them what God has to say
about marriage and about this amendment. The article
last week said that this amendment is no where in the
Bible; however, it is clear in the following scripture
that the Lord intended for marriage to remain between
one man and one woman: Genesis 2:24- "Therefore a
man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to
his wife, and they shall become one flesh."
This_is not an issue of hate against homosexuals by
the church, this is a stance that all Christians should
take. We as Christians and followers of Christ, do not
hate those who choose this lifestyle, we do however
disagree with the lifestyle they live. I personally do not
want my children taught about homosexuality in school
(which is what is happening to Kindergarten parents in
Massachusetts) or taken oil a field trip to witness their
lesbian teachers' wedding (as in California). There
comes a time whenreveryone should stand up and use
their God given right to vote (which is also in scripture)
and voice their opinion. The church is taking a stand on
this Almendment and we will not apologize for it,
To the editor:
I am in writing in response to the letter to the editor
last week in regards to Amendment 2. Unfortunately
by the time that this is printed, it will be too late for
voters to hear yet another point of view before~casting
their ballot; however, I pray that, people voted their
convictions and this precious amendment has passed.
In last week's article, it was stated that churches who
participated in "Stand for Marriage Sunday'' have in
some way drifted away from their purpose. It is true that
churches come together to Worship the Lord; however,
it is also very true that pastors are commissioned and.
ordained of the Lord to preach the Word from the pulpit.
It was stated that Amiendment 2 is niot in Bible and I beg
to differ with whoever believes this as this ameridment
is very much scriptural. Although you may believe that
Christians are "entitled to their opinion," but it should
be kept out of the ~church, our opinion of this is based
on the very Words written in scripture.
If you would have attended a church on October 1 9th
or at least the church I attend, you would have learned
dhat these pastors did not just stand in the pulpit and
tell you to vote for Amendment 2. In all actuality, these
pastors provided scripture after scripture to further
educate their congregations on what scripture has to
way in r gea dsotoa ths wial amendment. The p odblomt
of too many amendments and laws that have come
to pass. I am extremely proud of the outpouring that
we have seen in our local communities to support this
amendment and although you believe that marriage
is no longer sacred does not mean that everyone has
your same opinion. "Marriage should be between one
man and one woman," you will not find anything in the
Bible to dispute that fact.
understand that not everyone has the same religious
views that I have and that is a choice that they are
responsible for; however, I do see this as a religious
issue and it is one that the church should not take
lightly. Florida has statues stating that Florida does not
recognize same sex marriages but as you can see from
other states that a judge can change that in the matter
of a ruling. With the passing of this amendment no
court in the state of Florida will be able to overturn this
amendment; it will be placed in our state constitution.
This is an issue that Floridians have the right to decide
how we believe marriage should be defined in our state.
and based on Biblical facts-this amendment is one that
should be passed!

Sheriff Tatum, and the
Sheriff's Department under
him, makes a compelling case
for why Florida has some of
the most expansive "Pubhic

As citizens, we must insist on
compliance with these laws.
There can be no true

To the editor:
I recently attended the
Calhoun County Sheriff 's
debate for the- 2008 general
election where candidates
were asked, among other
things, about accountability
and public relations. I take
issue with Sheriff Tatum's
response to these questions
based upon my own experience
with the Sheriff's Department
Sheriff Tatum answered
thesp questions by discussing
the problems with him and
his staff that the media has
reported on. He said that he
has been forthcoming with
information, and responded to
this coverage with letters and
He did not address the
issues of accountability and
public' relations that concern

required under Florida's

Sheriff Tatum's definition
of accountability and public
-relations only include "damage
control" with the media.
As founder of the Calhoun
County, I wanted to review
the specific incident reports of

importance of citizens' access
to public records, our laws do
not require citizens to give a
reason for any public records

Florida hopes increased visibility efforts will
encourage more families to consider adoption,

this dream into a reality for so many children over
the past year."
This dream came true for Ashley, now 15, after she
was adopted by ~Darren and LeAnne of Tallahassee
just last year. After enduring a turbulent past -
tragically losing her mother and grandmother within
days of each other Ashley was featured in the
family section of the newspaper as a hard-to-place
adoption. When LeAnne saw her photo, she knew
Ashley belonged mi their family.
Working closely with Children's Home Society
of Florida, Darren and LeAnne adopted Ashley in
2007, saving her from a life in foster care. "I can't
even imagine what would happen to her if she
would have aged out of foster care," LeAnne says.
Instead, Ashley's surrounded with the love and
encouragement of her family.

other services to children and families, Children's

their forever families.
enhanced adoption efforts, Children's Home Society
of Florida and other adoption providers aim to
prevent as many children as possible from spending
the remainder of their youth in foster care.
In addition to heartbreaking loneliness, simply
surviving without a loving adoptive family is
exceedingly difficult. Most former foster youth
have little or no support system, don't complete their
education or receive proper job training, struggle to
be financially self-sufficient, and become parents
before they're ready. And so the cycle that forced
many children into foster care often is repeated.

his or her own bed, to wake up in a safe,.secure home,

Against the Sneads Pirates, the
Liberty County Bulldogs were dealt a
first half of treats and a second half of
tricks as they fumbled away a 12 point
half time lead and lost 18-12 to Sneads
in high school football action Oct. 31.
The Bulldogs scored two first half
touchdowns to' build the early lead.
Liberty's defense was also able to
bottle up the Pirate rushing attack. In
the first half Liberty was able to sustain
Drives and keep field position, but all
of that changed in the second half.
At the start of the second half
Sneads recovered a LCHS fumble on
the kickoff and later scored to cut the
lead to 12-7. The Bulldogs fumbled the
next kickoff as well and turned the ball
back over to Sneads. The Pirates cut
the LCHS lead to 12-10 after scoring
a field goal.
Sneads took a 16-12 lead on a
touchdown later in the half and then
scored their final points of the game
when they sacked the quarterback in
the end zone.
Liberty's turnovers doomed the
young squad as the Bulldogs only
had five offensive possessions in the

In Florida, we're lucky to
have colorful flowers throughout
the year. Now is the time to plant
cool-season bedding plants for
fall, winter and spring color.
When you replant your
flower beds and containers,
there are many wonderful cool-
season bedding plants available.
Excellent choices include pansy,
viola, dianthus, sweet alyssum,
calendula, snapdragon, petunia,
sweet William, nicotiana,
hollyhock, annual phlox, stock,
statice, ornamental kale and
cabbage, to name a few.
The colors available iti these
cool-season bedding plants. are
virtually unlimited. But that has
its drawbacks, since the hard
part is avoiding planting your
garden with every color you
can get your hands on. Using
too many colors will lead to
a chaotic look that is not as
and white petunias, it is more
effective to plant groups (three
or more plants) of red, groups of
pink and groups of white mn the
bed. This allows each color to
be noticed. A scattered planting
of individual red, -pink .and
white petunias would give the
overall appearance of pink when
viewed from a distance.
Use pastel colors in areas
that will be viewed prnnarily mn
the evening. Paler colors show
up better in low light. Pastel
colors also are important to
consider when planting shady
Another benefit of pastel
colors is that they make a space
look larger and more open.
If you have a courtyard that
seems a little cramped, a pastel
color scheme would be quite
appropriate. And cool, pastel
colors tend to create a serene,
Creatin-g an attractive,
colorful look is easier than
ever. But do a little thinking and
planning before you go to the
nursery. That way you generally will
be more pleased with the results.
Above all, have fun. After all, if
the color scheme isn't as great as you
thought it would be, it's only there for a
season. You can always try something
different next time.

effective as a well-thought-out
Here are some quick tips on
color to get you started:
Combine cool colors
together, or warm colors together'
for reliably harmonious results.
Cool colors include burgundy,
rose, pink, magenta, purple,
violet, lavender, blue, navy and
any variations of these colors.
Warm colors include orange,
gold, yellow, rust, peach and
any variations of these colors.
White combines equally well
with either group, and true blue
flowers also look good with just
about any other color. *
Use color where you want
to focus attention. The human
eye is drawn instantly to color.
Never use color to "beautify"
an unattractive feature in your
landscape such as a fire hydrant,
storage shed or trash can area.
You will simply make sure
everyone notices it, and the
color will not make it look any
patio and other outdoor living
areas. Fragrant plants such as
alyssum, stock and nicotiana are
It is also important td-plant
individual colors in masses or
groups, especially if the bed
will be viewed from a distance
(as in a front bed being viewed
from the street). If, for instance,
you decide to use red, pink
Use color where you can
enjoy it. Many gardeners lavish
their attention and garden budget
on their front gardens and this is
a wonder-ful gift they provide to
their neighborhoods. But don't
forget to include plantings of
colorful cool-season bedding
plants in beds, containers and
hanging baskets around the

COTTONDALE, Oct. 27 Not having played a match in a week
What did matter to the Altha Lady Wildcats is that they bounced the
Bozeman Lady Bucks last Monday from the District 2-2A tournament
by winning the quarter regional match -- 25-11, 25-12 and 28-26.
In Game 1 Emily Brooks gave Altha a 5-2 gad. Christy Simmons
extended it to' 10-5 and Cortney Harris put the game out of reach at
15-9 with her 4 straight service points.
The Lady Wildcats (7-14; 2-7, 2-2A) jumped out t~o a 7-2 lead in
Game 2 thanks to Emily Brooks 6 straight service points and the game
was virtually over when Rebekah Wiltse gave Altha a 16-86 lead.
Christy Simmons gave the Lady Wildcats a 11-6.1ead with her
3 straight service points in Game 3. Late in the ~game Bozeman
scratched out a 22-21 lead. But it was short lived as Rebekah Wiltse
put Altha back on top, 24-22. The Lady Bucks responded by- tying the
game two more times but Cessna Folsom sealed the deal by serving
the match-winning point.
Altha's scoring leader was Rebekah Wiltse with 12 service points,
a service ace, and 2 digs. Emily Brooks posted 11 service points,
a service ace~,.and assists. Christy Simmoils recorded 10 service
points, 3 service'aces, 4 kills and a dig. Both Cessna Folsom and
Cortney Harris chalked up 6 service points and each had a service ace.
Loni Johnson added 5 service points, a service ace, and a kill.
COTTONDALE, Oct. 28.- Having served so well the night
before the Lady Wildcats misfired on several of their serves in last
Tuesday night's semifinal match against the #1 sieed (and eventual .
district champion), Sneads` Lady Pirates: Those service misfires cost
them the match--25-11, 25-23 and 25-16.
Sneads had a slow start in Game 1 and Rebekah Wiltse's two
service points gave Altha (7-15; 2-8, 2-2A) a 6-3 lead. However,
Sneads next two servers built an 18-9 lead from which the Lady
Wildcats didn't recover.
In Game 2 Al tha showed some grit as they went toe to toe with
Sneads. Sneads had built a 5-point lead but Cortney Harris brought
her Lady Wildcats withiin two points, 10-8, with her 3 service points.
Cessna Folsom followed Harris and tied the game with her 2 service
poilits,.11-11. Lorii Johnson's service point kept the rally going by.
giving Altha their first lead of the game, 14-13. The Lady Wildcats
remained in the lead until Sneads knotted the score at 19-19. The
game remained tied and Altha's service opportunity to go back on
top was long and out of bounds.
Altha had a short lived 3 -0 lead in Game 3 but their miscues at
the service line cost them the ~opportunity to build on that lead and
Sneads o\ercani them to win the game and the match.
Once again Rebek~ab W;iltse led the Lady Wildcats at the service
line wilth 7 points and jhe had a season high 12 digs. Cortney Harris
put up 4 'serv ice points, a service ace, and 3 digs. Loni Johnson had
4 service points, a.block, a dig, and a kill. Cessna Folsom was good
for 2 service points. Emily Brooks,' Christy Simmons, and Hannah .
Waldorffall had a service point. Brooks had 6 assists. Simmons was
credited with 5 digs, 3 kills, an assist and a block. Waldorff came
away with 3 digs.
Next year looks bright for Coach Miranda Rehberg and the
Lady Varsity Wildcats. They will return all 6 starters plus they'll
be spending their off-season conditioning and playing together in
matches. Additionally, several junior varsity players will move up
to varsity team which will boost Altha's offensive and defensive

A pipeline normally requires a permanent 50-foot wide right-of-way. During
construction, FGT will need an additional 50-75 feet of workspace next to the
permanent right-of-way. FGT may also need temporary workspace in certain
areas, such as road, railroad, or stream crossings, to accommodate particular con-
structiori activities. Property owners are entitled by law to receive compensation
for having a pipeline on their property. FGT will negotiate with the property
owners to receive approvals with a signed easement for needed property rights.
To the extent that FGT is unable to negotiate easement rights with
landowners whose property the pipeline construction impacts, such easement
rights may be determined in accordance with the eminent domain laws of the
state in which your property is located.

PROPOSESA P/P~ELINEEXPANSION TO
SU~PPL YFLORIDA'FS CLEAN ENERGY NEEDS
On October 31, 2008, Florida Gas Transmission Company, LLC (FGT)
filed an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity with
the Federal Energy Regulatory Comrmission (FERC) to construct an expansion
of its existing interstate pipeline system. The project has been designated the
PhaseVIII Expansion Project and has been assigned Docket No. CPO9t17-000
at the FERC.
F/orrd & BS TranrmHN~ion your dean enrypa~w
FGT is Florida's leader in providing Elean energy solutions, safely and
reliably. FGT is an interstate natural gas pipeline with offices in Maitland,
Floidef and Houston,Texas and employees at field offices along our pipeline
system. FGT operates a 4,900-mile pipeline system that runs from South Texas
to Homestead, Florida. FGT has been supplying the majority of Florida's
natural gas needs for almost 50 years through an extensive network of
Ph~ase V///Expansin Project-i~r scpe andpu~rpose
The Phase VII Expansion Project refers to Florida Gas Transmission's
proposal to construct eleven pipeline loops, three new pipeline segments, add
compression at eight existing compressor stations, construct one new compressor
station, three new meter stations, two meter station upgrades, and associated
auxiliary facilities. FGT proposes to construct 357.3 miles of 24-inch, 36-inch
and 42-inch diameter mainline loops, approximately 89.8 miles of 30-inch new
mainline and approximately 36.1 miles of 20-inch and 24-inch diameter new
lateral pipelines. The project also includes the acquisition from Florida Power
& Light of approximately 22.7 miles of an existing 20-inch lateral connecting
FGT's mainline. Compression horsepower additions totaling 213,600 will be
constructed as part of the project. FGT is requesting authorization from the
Pipeline and Hazardo~us Materials Safety Administration to operate certain
segments of its existing pipeline system iix addition to portions of the proposed
pipeline expansion at greater pressures than currently authorized. This authori-
zation would eliminate the need to construct an additional 80.5 miles of 36-inch
mainline loops. The proposed in service date for the project is April l, 2011., with
the exception of one new lateral segment in which it has been requested to be
completed by July 1. 2010.
The purpose of the Phase VIll Expansion Project is to deliver needed
natural gas volumes to six electric generation utilities within the state of Florida.
