office, which included a small photo of Ty with the

"We had a pretty good turnout this time," said Liberty
County Elections Supervisor Marcia Wood, noting that the
county usually, leads the state in voter turnout in the Primary,
as it did this past August with 72 percent. "This year's 77.5
percent was pretty good for a General Election," she said,
explaining that the nmuber of local races on that ballot drew
more voters to the polls.
Early voting may have contributed to the high turnout by
making it more convenient for many to take part in the process.

The Russian president stated that Russia would

eastern Poland with ballistic missiles. Also, the
Russians stated that they would jam the U.S. sys-

As to challenges, it didn't matter whether Obama
or John McCain was elected president, both would
face the same challenges. The primary issue in the
presidential campaign was how each of them would
handle these challenges. The majority of Americans
thought that Obama had the best plan and the best
temperament to deal with the issues. Will Obama be
successful in leading America out of the financial
and foreign policy wilderness? Only time will tell.
But Obama's success or failure depends to a large
degree on the rest of us. Americans will be tested
just- as our parents and grandpalrentswere tested
during the Great Depression and WWII.
Will the American people put self interest and'
political ideology aside and come together for the
common good of America? Are we willing to make

Once these corinecting roads became
a reality, Langston began work on the
final link to join Liberty and Wakulla
counties. A barge, known at that time
as a 'flat;' was constructed to trans-
port incoming traffic across the river,
Dimensions of this first barge were 10
feet wide by 40 feet long..
In later years, after Reddick Langs- '
ton's death, his son, John, built a larger
barge to accommodate heavier, wider,
and longer loads. The dimensions of
this barge were 14 feet wide by 40 feet

by Reddick Langston
My grandfather, Reddick Langston, The Langs
moved to Wakulla County, Florida, with east side of
his family from Floren.ce, South Caro- River, apple
lina, in 1870. In 1876 or 1877, upon

years, cars and trucks. The most unusu- lungs to '
al operation was the. ferrying of a large quite
circus across the river in.1926.
After Reddick Langston's .death in .
1890, his son and my father, John H. Langston, continued
the operation until~ 1929, at which time this mode of public
travel was no longer needed due to the construction of a
permanent bridge on State Road 20 which connected Leon,
Gadsden, and Liberty counties..
The task of opening a road capable of hauling public traf-
fic through a virgin forest, especially a half mile of swamp
wetlands that contained huge hardwood trees, was quite a
feat. This type of project, undertaken even in modern times
with large bulldozers, would not be considered an easy task.
The task was completed with the engineering skills and hard
work o'f those involved: Only crude tools were available at
that time axes, shovels, cross-cut saws, horses and oxten.
The work detail was accomplished through a concerted ef-
Sfort on the part of the Stoutamire family, the Langston fam-
ily, interested neighbors and local businesses ori both sides
of 'the river who would profit by having the shortest link to
Apalachee Bay and improved communication and trade op-
portunities between Liberty and Wakulla counties,
The terrain on the east side of the river was quite dif-
ferent from the west side. The east side had a rather steep
incline from the water's edge to the top of the hill. Many
yards of dirt had to be removed to decease the degree of
slope in order to accommodate travel.
Another very difficult engineering feat was required,
again using the same type of tools, after sloping and grad-
ing of the river was completed. A firm road foundation was
provided by using dead light -wood logs to 'rive' or 'split
slats,' which were hand split lumber about 1 inch thick by
10 feet long, laid side-by-side from the water'seedge for
about 200 feet. This foundation also prevented soil erosion.
These slats are still in place and remain solid under about

steel cable was stretched across the river and secured on
each side of the river bank. Next, two chains were attached
to the barge, one toward the front and the other toward the
rear. The chains were attached to steel rings which encircled
the cable, allowing the barge to be secure against the current
of the river and at the same time to slide along the cable at
the barge was moved back and forth across the river.
Power to push the barge forward was achieved by a long
pole placed against the river bed. As the operator applied
pressure to the pole, he would move the length of the barge,
repeating this procedure until reaching the river bank, at
which time 'gang planks' were placed from the barge to the
river bank, allowing vehicles to move on or off the barge.
The Langstons lived on the east side of the Ochlockonee
River, approximately one-half mile from the west river
bank. Travelers wishing to cross the river alerted them day
or night in one of the following. ways: (a) A conch shell,
which could be blown and remained on site. (b) Cowhorns
were a common method. (c) Using strong lungs to 'holler'
was also quite adequate.
It is rioted that the Langstons would not allow guineas on
their property, due to the guineas 'constant cackling, which
could hinder hearing travelers' signals.' The rate of charges
were as follows: (a) To cross the river by boat ... 5 cents
(b) To cross on the barge, not requiring gang planks ... 10
cents (c) To cross, on the barge, requiring gang planks ....

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-
struction 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.

for a new GI Bill, and this need
has only grown with the wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan. In
these wars, our guardsmen and
reservists have been deployed
at a level that we have not seen
since World War II. Many of
these guardsmen and reservists
were in~career professions before
these wars, and many will return
home unable to continue these
professions because of physical
or mental injuries sustained
during service. The new GI Bill
will make the veterans of Iraq

like the veterans of World War

Bill in Congress was asignificant
victory for our veterans-

Each year on Veterans Day,
we honor the bravery of the men
and women who have served
our country in uniform. We sing
their praises, and we offer our
gratitude. It is important for all
of us, as Americans, to come
together and thank our veterans
for their service and sacrifice,
and in Congress, we must go
even further and see that our
government honors our veterans,
not just in words, but in deeds,
I am pleased to report that
it is a new day in Congress
when it comes to honoring the
commitment we have made to
our veterans. Gone are the days
of underfunding and lack of
oversight. This Congreiss has
made our veterans, specifically
veterans' healthcare and benefits,
a priority, and ~there have been
several achievements, both
nationally and locally, that have
made good on our commitment
to our veterans. .
First, in 2007, we passed the
largest increase in veterans'
funding in the 77-year history
of the Veterans Administration
(VA). Much of this funding was
targeted to improving healthcare
for the 5.8 million veterans
who need and deserve access to
quality healthcare from the VA.
This year, Congress followed up
by again increasing funding for
important veterans' programs
and benefits and continuing to
address the claims backlog at
the VA by adding new claims
processors.- Both of these
veterans' funding bills were part
of fiscally responsible budget
resolutions, which made possible
these unprecedented VA funding
increases and reflected this
Congress' renewed commitment
to our veterans. .
care on June 30 of this year. This
is an exciting development in our
area, and one that resulted from
the hard work and dedication of
many parties, most notably the
community of Jackson County.
With this new clinic, veterans in
Jackson County and surrounding
areas will have more convenient
access to VA medical care.
Recently, we have made a
lot of progress for our veterans,
but our work is not over. As a
Vietnam veteran, I will continue
to work in Washington to see
that we keep the promises that
we have made to the men and
women who have served our great
~country. On this Veterans Day, I
would like to thank our veterans
and their families. Through their
service and sacrifice, they have
made America abetter, safer, and
stronger country, and we remain
indebted and grateful.

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 Commission (FERC) to construct an expansion
of its existing interstate pipeline system. The project has been designated the
Phase VIII Expansion Project and has been assigned Docket No. CPO9-17-000
at the FERC*
H/olida Gas 7ansmixrion -~u yount energypa~erksr
FGT is Florida's leader in providing clean energy solutions, safely and
reliably. FGT is an interstate natural gas pipeline with offices in Maitland,
Florida 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
Phiase W// gnsion Pl/'ec- i& scpe andpulpse
The Phase VIII 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
auxciliary 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 Hazardous Materials Safety ~Administration to operate certain
segments of its existing pipeline system in 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 1, 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 VIII Expansion Project is to deliver needed
natural gas volumes to six electric generation utilities within the state of Florida.

Florida's environment by committing to recycling as part of
the fifth annual Florida (K-12) Schools Recycling Pledge Card
The contest, announced by the Florida Department of
-Environmental Protection (DEP), Recycle Florida Today,
Creative Recycling. Systems, Inc. and Publix Super Markets,
rewards the three schools that submit the most recycling pledge
cards with the chance to win a refurbished computer.
"By starting at a young age and getting involved recycling,
students~ can play a major role in helping Florida achieve its 1
new statewide recycling goal of 75 percent by the year 2020,"
said DEP Director of Waste Management Mary Jean Yon. "This
contest encourages Florida's' youth to take
personal responsibility to manage waste and
demonstrate environmental stewardship at
school and at home."
Florida's -new 75 percent recycling
goal was established in House Bill 7135
known as the Energy, Climate Change, and Final E
Economic Security Act of 2008.
The bill, signed into law by Governor `2008 FORI
Charlie Crist, also directs DEP to develop
a program designed to achieve the 75 SUPE
percent goal and submit it to~ the Legislature
for approval by January 1, 2010. DEP ZfCI
is encouraging the public to assist in
developing this plan and has created a YOUr~l

Thank You "~t
I would like to take this time `
to thank each of you for your : 2 k
support during the past eight
years. While I have been your
voice on the school board I too
have gained a lot of valuable
experience while doing so. It
is important for each of us to
give our newly elected officials
all the support they need in hopes that they will be the best
that we have ever had. It is important to remember the good
things that have happened and the bad also, so we will nt
travel the same path again. It has been an honor knowing
that I have had so many friends and colleagues supporting
me while a school board member.
While over the last year and a half I have received two
promotions that have taken more and more of my time and
added challenges that need my undivided attention, I feel
confidant that we have very capable people in place for
success. It is my hope that we will continue to improve our
growing educational system in Liberty County so oursu
dents can reach their goals and beyond, as I have. Good
Luck to everyone in their future endeavors and again,
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING and I look forward to the con-
tinued friendships that my family and I have gained through
living in this great county!
Your Friend and Neighbor.

had to learn and perform.
This was a very memorable
time in my senior year. I will
never forget it."

i h: Class 2A-DistrictP3 Champion
L~adyr Bulldogs Volleyball Team hosted
the North Florida Christian (NFC)
Eagles on Tuesday, Nov. 4 for a Regional
'Quai-terfinals match. NFC strolled into the
LCHS gym with a record of 16-9, and with
a bundle of confidence. Very few times
in the past have the Bulldogs defeated the
Eagles in any sport, and the visiting team
was expecting that tradition to continue.
As the~teams warmed up, it was easy
to see that the Lady Dawgs had far more
weapons than the Eagles. They had three
great hitters in Hannah Moore, Tiesha
Alston, and senior Stephanie Duggar.
They had two great setters in Melanie
Shuler and Jackie Regalado. They had
two great utility players in senior Brittney
Griffin and Danielle Cessna. They had
a great blocker in senior Haley Walker; .
and the best libero in the region, Ashley
Black. In addition, the Lady Dawgs had
the best support a team could have in their
non-starters on the bench and ~their fails
sitting in the stands, who were never quiet
as they cheered on their team throughout
the intense match.
As game 1 began, the Bulldogs quickly
jumped ahead on the scoreboard, and they
never looked back. They functioned like
a well-oiled machine, and easily defeated
NFC by a score of 25-15. This was a ~great
confidence builder for the team. In game
2, the Lady Dawgs continued to play well,
and defeated NFC by a score of 25-23.
Reeling from losing the first two games, ,
the NFC team huddled together and
regrouped prior to game 3. It was do or
die time for the Eagles; they had to win this
game, or their season was over. Although
the Bulldogs still performed well, the
momentum shifted to the Eagles, and they
won the third match 25-20.
After game 3, it was clear that there was
still a lot of fight left in the Eagles. The
servers, Melanie Shuler, was up. Neither
team was ready to give up. During the
next two volleys, both teams played with
great intensity, but the Dawgs played just a
little better. They were able to win the next
two points, making the score 14-11. The
fans were on their feet, with their index
fingers in the air, signifying that only one
last point was needed. Melanie was still
serving. She dug deep and served up a
beautiful serve that was too much for the
Eagles to handle. The ball hit the floor,
and the Lady Dawgs and all of their fans
erupted in roaring cheers.
,The Bulldogs had won the match, ~and
advanced to,the Regional Semifinals. A
feat most people, especially NFC and their
fans, thought impossible.
The win over North Florida was truly
a team effort. Each player on the floor
They had great hitting: Hannah Moore
had 15 kills, Tiesha Alston had 12 kills,
and Stephanie Duggar had 11 kills. They
had great setting: Melanie Shuler had,
20 assists and Jackie Regalado had 14
They had great defense: Ashley Black
had 24 digs and -Danielle Cessna and
Hannah Moore had 17 digs each. They
had great blocking: Haley Walker had
1-1 blocks. In addition, they had great
serving: Melanie Shuler had 4 aces, and
Brittney Griffin had 2 aces. The individual
efforts of each team member resulted in a
tremendous team victory.
The Lady Bulldogs now have a record
of 17-6. They will travel to Tallahassee to
play the Maclay Marauders on Tuesday,
November 11th for Regional Semifinal
The Lady D~awgs have gotten better and
better as the season has progressed, and are
confident that they will play well against

Lady Dawgs played their hardest, but NFC
came out on top again in game 4, winning
the game 25-22.
The match was now tied at 2 games
each. There had been several momentum
shifts, and now it was time for the big
reveal. Who would win the 15-point fifth
game and advalice to Regional Semifipal
play, and who would lose the game and
end their season?
The Lady Dawgs scored the first point
of the final game, but the Eagles still had
some fight left. The score teetered back
and forth until it was tied 11-11.' In the
final moments of the game, the Eagles
were serving and the Lady Dawgs broke
their serve, making the score 12-11, LCHS.
At that point, one of the Lady Dawgs' best

Tarragon is a perennial herb
with a wonderful slight anise
flavor. It is also a beautiful
ornamental landscape plant that
rewards us with beautiful yellow
flowers this time of year.
Cooks- agree that tarragon has
much more flavor when fresh.
Unlike most of the other herbs,
tarragon loses the potency of its
flavor when dried. When using
tarragon in cooked
dishes, it is best to
add it at the end, as
heat tends to decrease
its flavor. ThIis may- b
be one reason it is so ~ i-
frequently preserved in
vinegar, which captures
and creates a tasty
condiment that can be
used in many sauces.
French tarra gon
is the classic variety.
Unfortunately, it does
not grow well in the Gulf
Coist's hot and humid ~
summers. So if you
want to add a wonderful
fresh tarragon flavor to
your dishes, cooks and
gardeners can substitute
S(Tagetes lucida) is native to
Mexico and Cuatemala and loves
the heat and hiumidity, pro\ idmng
abundant leaves for cooking all
summer. The flavor of Mexican
tarragonl is a bit spicier than that
of French tarragon, having an
accent of cinnamon in addition to
the sweet licorice taste normally
associated with tarragon. It can
be used in the same mauner
as French tarragon, and gives
whatever dish it is in an extra
dimension of zest. .
Mexican tarragon is also called
Spariish tarragon or Mexican
mint marigold. It is related to the
addition to fresh green salads.
Mexican, tarragon is an
attractive landscape ornamental.
It produces a delicate, understated
small shrub that isn't gaudy or
flashy. Use it in perennial borders
where its shiny green leaves
and little golden flowers make a
polite, subtle statement.
Mexican tarragon is carefree,
generally pest free and easy to
grow. This reliable perennial
grows in sunny spots but will
tolerate partial shade. It prefers
well drained soil and is fairly
drought tolerant. As with most

FWC to stop
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
(FWC) will discontinue the
release of whooping cranes into
Florida's non-migratory flck.
The FWC accepted the recent
recommendation from the multi-
agency International Whooping
Crane Recovery Team.
The team created the release
program 15 years ago in an effort.
to establish a self-sustaining,
non-migratory whooping crane
population in Florida. Naturally
occurring whooping crane
populations in the southeastern
United States disappeared.by
Scientists decided to stop
Jeesn ""t ";"r."": v she nto
reasons, including problems with
survival and reproduction, both
ofwhich have been complicated
by drought. Additional
considerations included shorter-
than-expected life spans, scarcity
of birds for release, project costs
and the loss of habitat from
development. The team felt
that project resources anti birds
produced in captivity -could-be
better used for other whooping
Erane releases as well as to
maintain the captive flock.
"It was a tough decision,"
said FWC biologist Marty Folk.
"Many people were involved,
but most agreed that this was the
right decision and the riglit time
to make it."
From 1993 to 2004, biologists
released 289 captive-raised,
into Osceola, L~ake and Polk
counties in Central Florida.
The last releases took place
in winter of 2004-2005. FWC
biologists will continue to study
the remaining 31 birds.
The FWC was the lead agency
in Florida in the cooperative
effort to establish a non-
migratory flock. Major partners
included the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological
Survey, the Canadian Wildlife
Service and the International
As a member of the Whooping
Crane Eastern Partnership, the
FWC continues its involvement
with a separate project to
reintroduce migratory whooping
cranes in the eastern United
States. This flock migrates from
Wisconsin to Florida each year.
In the coming year, biologists
will release 20 additional
whooping cranes into the current
flock of 68 birds.
