'low tar' and 'light.' The tobacco companies said
from now on they'll label their low tar cigarettes as
"less cancerific." CONAN O'BRIEN
Let's run this down, it was last week, Senator En-
sign, Republican, he comes on the television and
admits he has an affair. And this week, Governor
Sanford of South Carolina, Republican, gets on the
television and admits he had an affair. And I was
thinking, why do. the Republicans have this prob-
lem? And it finally came to me. The trouble started
with Bob Dole when he was doing those commer-
cials for Viagra.. DAVID LETTERMAN
Did you hear about Mark Sanford, the governor
of South Carolina? He mysteriously disappeared
and nobody knew where he was. Sanford admitted
to having an affair in Argentina. I'm like, great, now
we're outsourcing mistresses. CRAIG FERGUSON
The supreme-leader said that the Iranian elec-
tions were not rigged. Well, that's good enough for
me. He did say that there was some trouble early.
on and they did make some errors. As a matter of
fact, he's now saying that they forgot to count votes
for Susan Boyle. DAVID LETTERMAN
The past couple of years there have been a whole
bunch of scandals involving governors. You know
things are bad when the most normal governor of
the last decade was Jesse 'The Body' Ventura.
Some experts are saying the Iranian election
was rigged because in some towns, voter turnout
was more than 100%. What's even stranger, all
those extra votes were from elderly Jewish people
in Palm Beach, Florida. CONAN O'BRIEN
The world's oldest man died, he was 113, and a
leading voice of the young Republicans.
The Iranian supreme leader says the election
results are official. He said, "It's over, the election
results are official. And besides that, it costs too
much to rig another election." DAVID LETTERMAN
We are preparing for a big high seas showdown
with North Korea. You heard that? They may be
transporting nukes. We're going to intercept their
ships. It's going to be fun stuff! That's right, we're
going to be intercepting their ships. The winner of
the round meets the Somali pirates. And the loser

care costs and a shrinking economy, Mr. Obama is rack-
ing up record debt. That makes many people nervous.
The news media remind us that if a president is to be
successful he or she must get all their major legislation
passed in their first year in office. So what does a presi-,
dent do for the next three years of his or her presidency?
Twiddle their thumbs? There is something wrong with
a governmental system that works that way.
Apparently, Mr. Obama believes the one-year rule
because he is attempting to reshape America overnight.
While these changes are much needed, it won't happen.
It won't happen because the proposed changes in
health care, energy, the financial system and foreign
Policy are too much for the American people to com--
prehend. It's not that Americans are dumb, the problem
is information overload.
The second problem is that our governmental system
is not capable of dealing with complex issues. We have
a representative form of government, but our replesen-
tatives aren't capable of dealing with the issues in a bi-
partisan manner. The Congress doesn't seek solutions
that serve most of the people most of the time. They
seek political party solutions.
Health care is a good example. The basic question
to be answered is whether health care in America is a
right or a privilege. Unlike other industrialized coun-
tries, the answer is that health care in America is a for-
In my view, health care is a basic right. There are
three or four issues that are strategic
SS to a country or a society. One of those

ues. He lives in
One of our collective problems is the
ingrained dislike, hatred for some, for
the government. Many people view the
government as some sort of evil force.
I concede that the congressional governmental process
is seriously flawed, but I believe that the basic govern-
ment bureaucrat does a good job of promoting what-
ever goofy policies the Congress may foist upon us.
I'm on Medicare, and the system works fine for me.
I've never been refused medical services because of
"some government bureaucrat." The Public Insurance
Option that Mr. Obama has proposed is an expansion of
Medicare. A Time magazine article in the July 6 edition
provides an excellent review of the public option plan.
According to the Time article, 62% of Americans fa-
vor a public option but only 37% support the option if it
will put insurance companies out of business.
I find this strange because it seemed that most of
America was willing .for the automobile companies to
go bankrupt and close down. But they want to protect
insurance companies. Makes no sense.
Another reason that the health care issue should be
resolved in some equitable manner is that the world's
population is getting older. The Associated Press re-
ported that the 65 and older population will triple by
2050. That isn't good news for U.S. politicians who
can't seem to fix the health care system now.
In the AP article, Richard Jackson, director of the
Global Aging Initiative at the Washington-based Center
for Strategic and International Studies said, "The 2020s
for most of the developed world will be an era of fis-
cal crisis, with real long-term stagnation in economic
growth and ugly political battles over old-age benefit
Current events are a test for all of us. Can we col-
lectively rise to the occasion and do what is best for all
Americans; not Republicans, not Democrats but all of
us? Time will tell.

How did.Uncle Sam get to be
a symbolfor the United Stdtes?
-W S., Aspen, Colo.
Uncle Sam was a real person
from Massachusetts named
Samuel Wilson. He served in
the Revolutionary War, and later
owned a successful meatpacking
business, where he developed a
reputation s being friendly and
-fair. In the War of 1812, Wilson
supplied troops with pork and
beef, and he marked the boxes
destined for the troops "U.S.,"
for United States. Some people
thought that itmieant Uncle Sam,
and both soldiers and civilians
soon began to apply this term to
anything supplied by the federal
S-Uncle. Sam's customary
appearance, with his intimidating
stare and star-spangled suit and
hat, is an invention of artists and
political cartoonists; Samuel
Wilson did not look like the
modem image of Uncle Sam.
Wilson was clean-shaven, while
Uncle Sam is usually portrayed
with a goatee.

(Whitewashes meant for chicken

Whitewash is essentially a
liquid plaster and was often used
as a sealant for mortar, stone, and
brick. In some pirts ofthe country,
such as Pennsylvania, it is still
widely used as a preservative
in rubble construction and for
masonry walls and chimneys. As
better paints became available,
however, they replaced whitewash
because they were easier to
apply and they lasted longer.

to works for any date after 1753.
To figure it, you need this key:
January is. 1 (except in a leap
year, when it is 0); February is 4
(except in a.leap year, when it is
3); March is 4; April is 0; May is
2; June is 5; July is 0; August is
3; September is 6; October is 1;
November is 4; December is 6.
Now, to compute the day of
the week for any given date, add
the last two digits of the year
to one-quarter of the last two
digits (discard the remainder, if
it doesn't come out even), plus
the given date, plus the month
key as above. Next, divide that
sum by seven. (If you go back
before 1900, add two to the sum-
before you divide. If you go back
before 1800, add four before
you divide. From 2000 to 2099,
subtract one from the sum before
The remainder left over after
you divide represents the day of
the week: One is Sunday, two
is Monday, three is Tuesday,
and so on. If, when you divide
the number, it comes out with
no remainder, then the day is
Here's an example: Say you
know that the Dayton Flood was
on March25, 1913, and you want
to know what day of the week that
was. First, take the last two digits
of the year: 13. Add one quarter
ofthose two.digits, discarding the
remainder (one quarter of 13 is 3,
discard the 1 remainder, so now
you have 13 plus 3 thus far). Then
add'the given date of the month:
25. Then add the key number for
March: 4. So, 13 plus 3 plus 25
plus 4 equals 45. Divide 45 by 7
to get 6 with a remainder of 3.
That remainder number, 3, gives
you the day of the week, and the
third day of the week is Tuesday,
so the Dayton Flood took place on
Tuesday, March 25, 1913.

Are you familiar with our
"swing bed" program? No, we
don't have beds that swing! But
we do have a great program
for patients that have been in, a
larger hospital for maybe major
surgery or a serious illness. It's
a real "win-win" situation and
I've said before how much I love
those types of situations.
These patients, once they
have been in the larger hospital
at least three days, can then be
transferred to 'our "swing bed"
and that's where the "win" comes
in, The patient-is nearer home
and his or her family and loved
ones don't have to travel over an
hour to visit. It is a win for the
hospital as a way to increase the
utilization of our hospital.
With the price of gas today,
it is a real benefit to the family
membersof such patients. Throw
in the terrible traffic in Panama
City, Tallahassee, or even Do-
than, plus the time to get there-
and back, and you see my point
about it being a win for them.
It's a boon to the hospital in
increasing our inpatient census
and our staff is especially tal-
ented in caring for these type
patients. We provide very cour-
teous and compassionate care

they are relatives of our staff. All
are treated with a very special
level of care.
Swing beds, also called sub-
acute care, requires less acute
patient care than has been pro-
vided after the major surgery or
illness in the larger hospital.
And, again, the care provided
Sb our staff is exceptional. I
get LOTS of compliments from
family members on. how nice
and professional our staff was to
a family member of theirs in our
swing bed program.
A swing bed patient may also
require some physical or occu-
pational therapy and we provide
that also. We've created a room
just for the provision of reha-
bilitation services and have ex-
cellent therapists providing this
needed component of the swing
bed program. These profession-
als are top notch as well.
And of course, any needed
lab or x-ray exams can be pro-
vided in-house by our staff. And
you've read about all the fancy,
new state-of-the-art equipment
we've obtained recently to pro-
vide those needed tests. Twen-
ty-four hour respiratory therapy
care is also available. Patients
requiring ventilators can be
cared for by our staff as well.
And the setting these, pa-
tients receive this care in has
also improved significantly. We
soon will have upgraded all of
our inpatient rooms under our
Adopt-a-Room Program. This
great program has resulted in
our community helping us be-
come an even better hospital. We
are very appreciative of all those

In Bay County and elsewhere
in the Panhandle, snorkelers and
divers are reminded that they
must use a dive flag. Dive flags
are used to keep the people who
are in the water and boaters a re-
spectable distance apart.
That's. especially important
with the July 1 Sept. 10 scal-
lop season at hand.
The divers-down flag is red
with a white diagonal stripe. It
must be at least 20 by 24 inches
if displayed on a boat; at least 12
by 12 inches if towed on a float
by the diver or srorkeler.
In open waters, vessels must
make an effort to stay 300 feet
from a divers-down flag. In a
river, channel or inlet the dis-
tanee is 100 feet. Vessels may
operate within those distances,
but at idle speed.

A woman and- her
grandson were taken by
ambulance to Tallahassee
after their vehicle crashed
about five miles south of
Bristol on County Road 12
Thursday, according to FHP
Trooper Gene Hunt.
Sue Taylor, 62, and her
nine-year-old grandson were
traveling west on County
Road 12 around 3:30 p.m.
when she lost control of her
Toyota Tundra on a curve.
She veered off the north
shoulder, traveled about 225
feet before running over a
culvert, which acted like a
ramp and sent the vehicle
airborne for about 100 feet,
, Hunt said. When the truck
landed, it overturned and
then came back right-side-
Both suffered lacerations
and possible broken bones,
the trooper said, adding.
"The seatbelts saved them.".

FWC celebrates 10t" anniversary July 1
Ten years ago, Florida cre-

and freshwater and marine re-

The FWC won't observe the
anniversary with any external
festivities, but its leaders and
employees are taking time to re-

gone through during its first de-

Since 2002, the agency has
worked to update its structure

Director Ken Haddad has di-
rected FWC leaders to motivate
and train employees to set new
standards for efficiency, effec-
tiveness and customer service.

components, helped coordinate

Four million fry produced
at Blackwater this spring
The staff at the Blackwater Fisheries Research and Development
Center has been busy this spring producing more than 4 million fish
for Florida waters:
Dave Yeager, one of the senior fisheries biologists at the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) facility near
Holt, said the fish include striped bass, white bass, hybrid striped
bass and largemouth bass. The fingerlings were either stocked in
Panhandle waters or taken to the Florida Bass Conservation Center
in Webster or the Welaka National Fish Hatchery in Palatka.
"In the past when we produced hybrid striped bass we collect-
ed wild white bass and stripers from our rivers or lakes, but this
past year we held both species in tanks at our facility," Yeager said.
"Maintaining the fish on site saved us significant time and effort."
He said the high-tech method of producing stripers. in the past
involved injecting female fish with 'human chorionic gbnadotropin
(HCG) hormone to stimulate egg development and spawning. When
striper eggs are very early in the developmental stage, Yeager said,
HCG doesn't work well.
In its place, he said, Blackwater staff developed a new hormone
technique. Using the new technique this spring they produced more
than 1 million striper fry.
In an effort to measure stocking success, Yeager said, striped
bass and white bass fingerlings stocked in the Ochlockonee River
and lakes Talquin and Seminole were marked with a dye that pro-
duces a yellow mark in the bones of fish. By marking the stocked
fingerlings, biologists should be able to determine to what extent
hatchery-produced fish contribute to the population, versus natural
Although the emphasis-was mostly on species other than large-
mouth bass, Yeager said the hatchery produced and stocked 35,000
fingerling largemouth bass in Lake Talquin. All of the bass are
tagged with small, metal micro-tags. He said the micro-tags will be
useful in the future for looking at survival rates.

Deadhead spent flowers to enjoy nature's second bloom
S by Theresa Friday, Horticulture
Extension Agent, Santa Rosa County
Record setting heat along the Gulf Coast has many
gardeners seeking relief indoors. This is the time when
gardeners must be cautious when working in the heat.
However, there are still gardening tasks that must be done.
If you can, work outside in the early morning before the
heat of the day becomes oppressive. The evening might
also be somewhat cool, but you may have to contend with
clouds of mosquitoes!
According to Dr. Gary R. Bachman, Assistant Extension
Professor ofHorticultire, Coastal Research & Extension
Center, an important garden maintenance activity that is
sometimes overlooked due to the heat is removing spent
flowers or deadheading.
Flowering plants require deadheading .for. several
reasons. It extends the bloom period, removes the seed
source of species that could become weedy and maintains
the health of our flowering garden plants.
Many plants will bloom repeatedly if the fading flowers.
are removed. A plait's ultimate goal. is to produce seed
for ethe generation. Ifv e interrupt that process, the
plants will continue to try and complete theii genetic
programming by flowering again.
S Flowering plants are capable'ofproducing.a large seed
bank cofitaining hundreds or even thousands of seeds
Coneflowers benefit from routine deadheading.
THERESA FRIDAY PHOTO
each year. The germination of these seeds has a couple
of unexpected consequences.
First, many times the seedling does not come "true"
meaning it is not a duplicate of the original plant.
Second, these seedlings could crowd out the mother
plant. Deadheading these species before seeds
are produced will. alleviate the problems of.
unwanted seedling germination.
Deadheading is also needed for plants that
we grow for foliage, like coleus. Removal of
the non-showy flowers will allow the colorful foliage to
be the focus.
The overall health of your flowering plants can be
increased through deadheading. The production of seed
requires a tremendous amount of energy from the plant, so
much so that the plant will sacrifice all vegetative growth
in order to produce the next generation. By removing the
spent flower heads the plant can be maintained in a more
vegetative growth stage through which the stems, leaves
and most importantly the root system will continue to grow.
The procedure for deadheading will depend on the
flowering characteristics of the plants themselves.
For plants having single flowers, such as zinnia or
coneflower;removing the flower stalk is all that is needed.
You can increase bloom size by removing side flower buds
so more energy is sent to the main flower. This will also
reduce any seed production pressure later in the season
or next year.
Many of our flowering garden plants have clusters
of flowers. These can be more troublesome. All of the
flowers do not mature at the same time; therefore, seed is
produced over a prolonged period. As the flower cluster
starts to fade, remove it, and allow the plant to produce
Some plants like dianthus produce flowers over
the entire plant.. Removing individual flowers would
discourage even the most dedicated gardener, so simply
shear the plant using snips or an electric trimmer being
careful to only remove the faded flower heads.
By practicing the task of deadheading throughout the
summer season, nature will bless you with a second wave
