man arrested

for molestation

of young girl
by Teresa Eubanks,
Journal Editor
A 14-year-
old girl was
taken to the
room to be
examined after
admitting to her
mother she had
been sexually
-molested for
the past eight
years and
William Marshall feared her
abuser was about to turn his attentions
to her little sister, according to a
report from the Blountstown Police
Department (BPD).
The mother reported the young teen
had been "acting strangely," which
prompted her to ask what was wrong.
The girl said William'Marshall had
sexual relations with her several times,
with the last incident being about two
weeks earlier.
After her initial exam at the hospital,
the girl was interviewed and underwent
a second exam with a child protective
team from the Department of Children
and Families in Marianna.
Marshall, 39, of Blountstown was
charged with two counts of lewd and
lascivious battery on a child after he
admitted to fondling the girl, according
to a BPD report.
In a sworn statement, Marshall told
officers that he was spending the night
at an apartment and when everyone
else had gone to sleep, he went into the
girl's bedroom and fondled her. He said
he had done so twice in the past year.
He is being held without bond.

ATV charged with fourth DUI

A 44-year-old Bristol man was
arrested on his fourth'DUI charge
after a trooper caught him riding
an ATV with a beer between his
legs Aug. 2.
Willard Ray Womble was
traveling north on County Road
333 around 6:33 p.m. at the same
time FHP Trooper Gene Hunt was
heading south on the same road.
As the two drew closer on
the road, the trooper turned on
his emergency lights and pulled
up next to Womble to conduct a
traffic stop.
When the trooper walked up
to the ATV driver, he noticed
Womble trying to hide the beer
between his right leg and.the
Womble, who admitted that
he did not have a license, was
asked to hand over the can ofbeer

while he searched for his Florida
Identification Card. While talking
with Womble, the trooper noted
the strong odor of an alcoholic
beverage on his breath.
When asked if he had been
drinking, Womble replied that he
had consumed two beers.
He was asked to step off the
ATV and follow the trooper to
the patrol car, but, according to
Hunt's report, "He was having
a hard time walking straight"

Suspect arrested after high

and "kept swaying from side to
Womble said he was unable to
perform a field sobriety test due
to a back problem.
When he was again asked how
much beer he had that evening,
Womble replied, "About eight." '
A breath sample taken on a
portable breath intoximeter gave
a blood alcohol reading of .180.
The legal limit in Florida is .08.
Womble refused to provide breath
samples for testing at the sheriff's

speed chase

through Blountstown and fleeing attempt

A Blountstown police officer
who spotted a man driving that he
knew did not have a license was
led on a chase Thursday evening
after he attempted a traffic stop.
Officer Scotty Norris was on
patrol when he saw Tommy Joe
Thurman, 30, of Blountstown
turn onto West Central Avenue
from the Alco parking lot around
6:41 p.m.
When the officer pulled up
behind Thurman's Pontiac and
signaled for him to stop, he sped
up, taking an abrupt left turn. The
car ran through the parking lot
of City Liquors onto 11th Street,
traveling south, according to the
arrest report.
The officer then hit his siren
but Thurman kept traveling,
going through the intersection
of l1th Street and South Street,
turning right on South Street,
heading west.
The car raced down South
Street until reaching State Road
20 W, where the driver quickly
turned left onto the highway,
running a stop sign and traveling
through the abandoned parking

. .1

lot of Granthan's tire store onto
S.R. 20 W.
The vehicle's speed picked
up and after two miles, it turned
left onto Charlie Woods Road,
going in front of oncoming traffic
without yielding the right-of-
The car then went south at
a high rate of speed through a
residential area with a posted
speed of 25 mph.
The car failed to stop at the
intersection of Charlie .Woods

Road and Matthew Woods Road
and went airborne onto a two-trail
road and continued on until losing
traction and rotating clockwise,
coming to a stop.
Thurman jumped out of the
car and ran into the woods.
His passenger got out and was
ordered to the ground before
being handcuffed.
Other officers were called to
the scene and began the search
for Thurman, who was found
crawling from a wooded area on
a two-trail road. Major Roman
Wood of the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office apprehended him
without incident.
It was found that the vehicle
Thurman drove is not registered
in the state. The tag on the vehicle
was registered to a Ford van.
Thurman was charged with
driving without a valid license,
felony fleeing and attempting
to elude police, attaching a tag
not assigned and operating an
unregistered motor vehicle.
His bond was set at $10,500
but he is being kept in custody
for violation probation.

Man charged with threatening ex-wife

and spouse with knife in Blountstown

A Blountstown man was
arrested for aggravated battery
after his ex-wife and her husband
charged that he had threatened
them with a knife, according to a
report from the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office.
When an officer responded to a
July 26 disturbance call at 10:20
p.m. at the laundromat at Cochran's
Trailer Park, he met with Aaron
and Teri Livingston, who stated
that they were approached by
Benjamin David Weeks, 47.
Weeks and Teri Livingston have
children, who live with her and her

The couple said that Weeks
approached them about allowing
his daughter to visit him and told
them he wanted to fight. They
alleged he pointed a knife in
Aaron Livingston's direction and
threatened him, saying, "Come
on, I'm ready for you." He also
reportedly told Livingston, "I will
cut your guts out," and threatened
to kill both of them.
When Weeks was located at
his trailer nearby that evening, he
denied being at the-laundromat and
said he had not had any contact
with the Livingstons.
Earlier that month, the

Department of Children and
Families contacted the sheriff's
office to report that Weeks had
threatened to kill Aaron Livingston
for using illegal substances around
his children.
The deputy's report noted that
there were no witnesses to the July
26 incident.
Livingston said that when
she was married to Weeks, she
had been a domestic violence
victim. In a statement provided
to the sheriff's office, Livingston
wrote, "I was scared that he was
going to seriously hurt me or my

*Check the playground equipment at your child's
school. Look for hazards such as rusted or broken equip-
ment and dangerous surfaces. The surface around the
equipment should be covered with wood chips, mulch,
sand, pea gravel, or mats made of safety-tested rubber
or fiber material to prevent head injury when a child falls.
Report any hazards to the school.
*Avoid any drawstrings on the hood or around the neck
of jackets and sweatshirts. Drawstrings at the waist or bot-
tom of jackets should extend no mpre than three inches
long to prevent catching in car and school bus doors or
getting caught on playground equipment.
-Teach children proper playground behavior: no push-
ing, shoving, or crowding.
*Give your child some strategies for coping with bullies.
He should not give in to a bully's demands, but should
simply walk away or tell the bully to stop. If the bullying
continues, talk to the teacher.

Loudmouths are destroying

the Democratic process

I've often written that America's
style of democracy is messy, and the O
current shooting match between right- C
wing conservatives and everyone else
proves my point. Jerry Cox is
I support the First Amendment, officer and write
but exercising one's First Amend- background ir
ment rights doesn't include preventing foreign policy is
someone else from voicing his or her kaloosa Cou
opinion. Some civility please, particu-
larly from the right.
Town hall meetings are a hallmark of the democratic
process, but when one side bullies the other, shouting
down any form of sensible dialog, then that's not democ-
racy at work. What next? Will everyone show up with a
gun and start shooting?
People are quick to quote the Constitution, particu-
larly the loudmouths who are disrupting these town-hall
meetings where a Democrat representative is attempting
to explain the proposed healthcare plan.
But the loudmouths are destroying the democratic pro-
cess. The healthcare proposal is testing the basic premise
of the democratic process. This is a test for Americans. If
people are not able to put aside their ideological beliefs
and do what is best for America as a whole, then I think
that America as a nation state is on the slippery slope to
America fail? That's crazy, you say, but if we collec-
tively are not able to solve problems that affect all of us
then chaos begins. Here is an example. The government,
meaning you and me, has a cash flow problem. For a va-
riety of reasons, the cost of healthcare is increasing at a
rate that exceeds our collective ability to pay for it. This
is not a complicated premise. What happens when you
can't afford to purchase gasoline? We had a taste of that
when gasoline was about $4.00 per gallon. The answer is
simple. We don't drive our trucks. It's walking time.
When the cost of Medicare exceeds the government's
ability to pay for it then there is no Medicare. Now.pon-
der that for a moment. There are millions of us on Medi-
care. Without Medicare what happens to all of us? Up
the creek comes to mind.
I don't think that the right-wingers and the insurance
companies have thought this one through. If the govern-
ment goes broke and Medicare fails, how many of us can
pay private insurance companies for healthcare? I'd say,

a retired military
r with an extensive
n domestic and
isues. He lives in
nty. /

not many.
With a failure of Medicare, the med-
ical industry and insurance industry
have a miniscule customer base. The
only people capable of buying insur-
ance are rich folks. America will then
be like a third-world country. A few
rich folks and many poor folks.
The fear mongering from the right
has reached a new low. Everyone who
disagrees with them is a Nazi, Social-

ist or Communist. Television talking heads and right
wing radio are scaring the hell out of old folks with their
claims that the government is going to ration healthcare
and promote euthanasia for all of us old folks.
Healthcare is already rationed. I've written this be-
fore, but one of my sons works for a national restaurant
chain. His employer rations his healthcare because dur-
ing his first two years of employment he can buy a policy
for only $10,000 hospital and $3,000 for the doctor. Of
those amounts, the insurance company restricts the type
of healthcare that he receives. He had three screws put
in his hip, and all the insurance coverage was used up.
He's still paying premiums but will not have any cover-
age until January 2010. The final bill from the hospital
for his part of the cost is more than $22,000,
As I wrote this piece, I received two healthcare "doom
and damnation" e-mails. I don't know how anyone can
write such distorted drivel. I downloaded the House Bill
3200, which I recommend that all do. I compared the
points and claims from the right-wingers and the pro-
posed bill, and "liar, liar pants on fire" came to mind.
We are at a serious juncture in the life of this place
called America. Government costs have to be controlled
whether the costs are for healthcare or fighting wars.
The medical and insurance industry does not have the
right to squeeze every dime out of us just because we
are afraid of dying. In my view, healthcare is a strategic
issue for a nation state and a right, not a for-profit busi-
ness, for its citizens. For a society, some things are more
important than the market making a profit. Healthcare is
one of those things.
Resolution of the healthcare issue will test the char-
acter of the American people. Can we collectively solve
this issue, or Will we become even more polarized along
ideological lines?

Sydney Sanders

and the squirrels
Sydney Sanders, a freshman at Liberty County High
School and her mother, Glynis Gentry, have a unique
group of animal friends: squirrels. About a year ago
while mowing, Glynis came across a baby squirrel
by a tree in her back yard. She picked up the baby
and put it in the pocket of her scrubs. The next
afternoon, she found a second baby squirrel.
Baby Boy and Big Boy (affectionately known
as "The Boys") were hairless and their eyes
were still closed. Sydney and her mother bottle-
fed the brothers and now they are wide-eyed
and bushy-tailed. They released them a few
months later. Both squirrels returned for visits
and treats for a while.
Early this year, Molly and Buddy were found
in a tree that was cut down by some loggers.
The loggers contacted Glynis because they
heard of how she raised "The Boys".
This brother and sister duo came to live
with Sydney and her mom right after their eyes
opened. They remained with them until April of
this year when Sydney turned them loose in their
front yard. Sydney can call them to her and enjoys
handfeeding the pair, who like to sit on her lap for
' treats. "Molly just had a set of babies," Glynis said. "I
noticed that she was getting fat and after we returned
from a trip out west, she was skinny again."
^ Sydney and Glynis said they will continue to en-
^ ': joy the visits for as long as the squir- ----
rels come around.

Bristol's Paige Shepard competes in

NBHA Youth World Championships

Paige Shepard of Bristol and her horse, Taz,
competed at the 2009 NBHA Youth World
Championships held in Jackson, MS on July
19-25. This invitation-only event is the largest
youth barrel race in the world.
The NBHA Youth World participants num-
bered over 967 in the teen division, ages 13
and over, and over 773 in the youth division,
ages 12 and under. The contestants ran for
over $200,000 in cash and prizes. Prizes in-
cluded eight Cactus Champion saddles, Gist
buckles, Drysdales Championship jackets,
eight 4-Star trailers, Tony Lama boots and
many other prizes.
Contestants came from over 37 states, Can-
ada and Italy. The contestants must qualify
each year in their respective states to compete
in the NBHA Youth World Championships
and are the finest youth equine athletes in the
world. They qualify on a local level by com-
peting at NBHA sanctioned shows or they can
win a 'Wildcard' at NBHA National shows,
Super Shows and State Show events.
The National Barrel Horse Association is
based in Augusta, GA and has a world wide
membership of over 35,000. It is known to be
the most innovative barrel racing business in

the industry and is credited with introducing
the divisional concept to barrel racing.
This was Paige's first time qualifying for
the World Championships. She had two good
runs during the week and on Friday, July 24
she was sitting to go to the shortrun on Satur-
day. Later that day on Friday someone came
in with a faster time and knocked her out of
the competition. That was it for Paige and
Taz for this year's competition.
Paige left on Saturday with a lot of great
memories and would like to take the time to
thank everyone who helped her dream come
She would like to thank all the Bristol and
Blountstown sponsors, without whose sup-
port and prayers she would not have been
able to fulfill her dream. Thanks to Sarah
Hatcher for all her help in getting Taz and
her ready for the World Championships.
There were ten other Bristol and Blount-
stown competitors and all but two of them
were part of the 'Team Temple' kids. This
says a lot for Wendy Temple of Blountstown
to have that many kids make it to the finals.
Wendy is a great trainer and riding instructor.
Thank you, Mrs. Wendy.

saying "Jesus" from the bottom of the
heart. Asking and knowing that every-
S thing would be alright, know that God is
the one in control of all things-and he will
Prevail. Do what is right and right will

Club, Samuel Stanley JROTC, Suma Cum Laude Student, E.E. Boyd,
Bright Futures and estimate of $53,000 for enlisting in the military ser-
vices. Shardae has made history here in Liberty County.
Acknowledgement of her achievement is greater than expected.

New mammography service available

Hope you're having a great
summer. Let me share some great
news from Calhoun-Liberty Hos-
pital to make it an even better
Our Board has approved some-
thing that will be a tremendous
benefit to the ladies of our com-
munity. We will add digital mam-
mography services very soon,,
hopefully before the end. of this
month. This will continue their
commitment to upgrade the ser-
vices we provide to you.
Digital mammography is a sys-
tem in which the x-ray film is re-
placed by solid-state detectors that
convert x-rays into electrical sig-
nals. These detectors are similar
to those found in digital cameras.
It is, as I love to say, "state-of-the-
art" equipment!
Mammograms are used as
a screening tool to detect early
breast cancer in women experi-
encing no symptoms and to detect
and diagnose breast disease in
women experiencing symptoms
such as a lump or pain.
We're very pleased to be offer-
ing this upgraded service and feel
it's a great complement to our oth-
er tests for women's health. We
also have a dexascanner machine
to detect osteoporosis. It would
be a good idea to schedule a test
with this machine at the same time
you receive your mammogram,
and perhaps on an annual basis.
Our new ultra-sound machine
is also very helpful in assisting
our doctors in detecting problems
early or following up on problems
perhaps identified with the new
digital mammography. It too, is a
"fancy piece of equipment!"
Our well-trained and highly
skilled technicians will perform
these exams in a courteous, com-
passionate and understanding
manner. And we have excellent
radiologists that will read the re-
sults and notify your doctor of any
problems immediately.
We can perform both routine
screening mammograms as well
as diagnostic mammography.
Screening mammography helps
in the early detection of breast can-
cers because it can show changes
in the breast up to two years be-




bI Ron Gilliard,
CLH Administrator

fore a patient or physician can feel
That's why current guidelines
from the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services, the
American Cancer Society, the
American Medical Association
and the American College of Ra-
diology all recommend screen-
ing mammography every year for
women, beginning at age 40.
The National Cancer Institute
recommends that women who
have had breast cancer and those
who are at increased-risk due to a
genetic history for breast cancer
should seek expert medical advice
about whether they should begin
screening before age 40 and about
the frequency of screening.
Research has shown that an-
nual mammograms lead to early
detection of breast cancers, when
they are most curable and breast
conservation therapies are avail-
able. When cancers are small, the
woman has more treatment -op-
tions and a cure is more likely. It
greatly improves a doctor's ability
to detect small tumors.
Diagnostic mammography is
used to evaluate a patient with
abnormal clinical findings such
as a breast lump or lumps that
have been found by the woman or
her doctor. Diagnostic mammog-
raphy may also be done after an
abnormal screening mammogra-
phy in order to evaluate the area of
concern on the screening exam.

Our radiologist will analyze the
images and send a signed report to
your doctor who will discuss the
results with you. We will notify
you of the results as well.
From the patient's point of
view,- having a digital mammo-
gram is essentially the same as
having a conventional film screen
mammogram. However, with the
new machine, the time of expo-
sure is much less for the exam.
This is important from the
standpoint of less pain as well as
less exposure to radiation. It helps
ensure that those parts of a pa-
tient's body not being imaged re-
ceive minimal radiation exposure.
And again, we have wonderful
techs performing the exam.
Also, our mammography room
has been "adopted" by Angie Hill
and her Merle Norman Cosmetic
Studio. It will be an attractive and
pleasing area. Thanks, Angie!
We're very pleased to offer
this service. It's yet another way
our patients can stay home and re-
ceive critical medical care, at their
We're also happy to provide
"women's health" here at Cal-
houn-Liberty Hospital. Our mam-
mography, dexascan and ultra-
sound, equipment all help improve
services to you.
And we'll continue to add new
and useful services for all our pa-
tients. (Stay tuned soon for even
more good news involving diag-
nostic scopes!)
I encourage you to-discuss these
potentially life saving exams with
your doctor and then give us a call
to schedule them. (Radiology is at
674-5411, ext 216.)
If you have any questions about
our new digital mammography or
anything about the hospital, give

Memorial HealthCare now offers
a cooling technology to help save
brain function in cardiac arrest
patients. Less than 300 hospitals
in the U.S. use this technology.
Cardiac arrest is when a person's
heart suddenly stops functioning.
While getting the person's heart
to start beating again is necessary
to keep that person alive, a full re-
covery requires even further treat-
ment. Recent studies have shown
that lowering the patient's body
temperature can result in tremen-
dous long-term benefits.
"By cooling the patient's body
temperature down to 91.4 de-
grees, neurological outcomes are
improved," says Ally Fields, RN,
assistant nurse manager, Tallahas-
see Memorial Bixler Emergency
Center. "When a person's heart
starts pumping again and blood
starts, flowing to his or her brain,
massive amounts of free radicals
are released very quickly. This
rapid release can kill brain cells,
resulting in brain damage."
Cooling the patient's body tem-
perature slows down the metabo-
lism and therefore slows down
injury and brain damage. The
American Heart Association now
includes this body cooling treat-

ment, which is called therapeutic
hypothermia, as one of their rec-
ommendations for increasing sur-
vival and improving outcomes in
cardiac arrest patients.
Recognizing the value of this
treatment, Tallahassee Memo-
rial Hospital has acquired two
machines that use water-filled gel
pads that are placed on the pa-
tient's torso and thighs to slowly
cool the patient's core tempera-
"Therapeutic hypothermia has
been shown to reduce mortal-
ity and improve neurological out-
comes in cardiac arrest patients. It
is a major step forward in manag-
ing cardiac arrest patients," said
Thomas E. Noel, MD, cardiolo-
gist with Southern Medical Group.
"The challenge with treating these
patients is that it requires a mul-
tidisciplinary approach to create
a successful program. However,
centers that have used hypotherm-
ia treatment have seen dramatic
A study from 2002 showed
that 53 percent of cardiac arrest
patients who received this cool-
ing treatment had a favorable out-
come, compared to only 35 per-
cent of cardiac arrest patients who
did not receive the treatment.

TMH now offers cooling technology

to help treat cardiac arrest patients

The Teen Safety Driver
Courses have started in Bristol
and have been a hit with the
teenagers. This free course
exposes. the kids to the real
life human consequences of
impaired driving by use of a
power point presentation with
statistics and graphic photos.
The teens move to the
course to test their driving
skills using a golf cart by at-
tempting to negotiate curves,
change of road width and re-
action time. The course has
three stages which the teen
must complete; the first stage.
is familiarization where they
learn the course; the second
stage is where we place the
'Fatal Vision' goggles on
them and allow them to drive
the course feeling the full ef-
fect of being under the influ-
ence; the final stage consist
of teen driver distraction, we
place a radio, other teens and
cell phones in the cart in an
attempt to distract the driver
from the course.
Paige Shepard completed
the course on the first day and
has volunteered her time as-
sisting us. She said it was fun
and educational all the while
professionally handled. She
also stated that the instruc-
tors know what they are talk-
ing about but do. not bore you
with just information.
After the course is complet-
ed it's back to the classroom,
where they view a couple of
videos with raw footage of
fatal car crash scenes. The
hardest and last step of the
course is 'The Letter.' Teens
are asked to write a loved one

What began as just a pleasant
Sunday afternoon drive for
Gulf County almost ended up
as a bad wreck.
After Calhoun County had
scored 4 runs tb pull to within
a run, 9-8, the Drive brought
starting pitcher, Matt Gan-
non, back to the moind. With
2 outs Gannon hit designated

hitter Tony Golden and lead
off batter Brandon Gardner
worked the count full before
drawing a walk. With the
home crowd cheering him on,

to the plate. In his two pre-
vious at bats he had doubled
and singled. However, he
lifted the first pitch he saw
and shortstop Phil McCroan
wrapped leather around it to
end the Horsemen's rally and'
the game.
Through the first four in-
nings of last Sunday's second
round playoff game the Drive
(13-8) had built an 8-0 lead.
During that span Adam Nixon
drove 3 homeruns out of the
pasture accounting for 6 of
those runs.
Calhoun County (11-8) cut
into that lead with their first
run in the sixth inning. Bran-
don Smith led off with a dou-
ble down the right field line
and Ben Faurot walked. Jer-
emy Proctor flied out to short
right field and Brandon Smith
beat the throw .to third base.
Josh McIntosh laid down a
1-0 bunt down the third base
line for a base hit and Smith
scored on the play.
The Horsemen made it an
8-4 ballgame by tacking on
3 runs in the seventh inning.
With two outs both Tony
Golden and Brandon Gard-
ner walked. Brandon Smith
slapped a single into left cen-
terfield, Golden came around
to score and Gardner made his
way to third base. That chased
Gulf County's starting pitch-
er, Matt Gannon, from the
hill and Phil McCroan came
on in relief. Smith stole sec-
ond base before Ben Faurot
ripped a grass-burner through
the right side that plated Gar-
dener and Smith.
Catcher Byrd Ramsey gave

the Drive a 9-4 lead (and the
game-winning run) with his
only hit of the day--a solo shot
over the left field fence in the
top of the ninth inning.
Ben Faurot banged a double
off the centerfield fence to be-
gin the Horsemen's ninth in-
ning. Jeremy Proctor reached
on a single and Faurot ad-
vanced to third. Josh McIn-
tosh turned on a 1-0 pitch
and delivered a single into
left field that allowed Faurot
to cross the dish. Tad Scott
made it a one-run game, 9-8,
after he lasered a 0-2 pitch
over the centerfield fence that
plated Proctor and McIntosh.
Gannon came back to the
mound to relieve McCroan
get the last three outs and end
Calhoun County's season.
Gulf County out hit Cal-
houn County, 12-9. Both
teams had 8 earned runs and
they each left 11 men on base.
The Drive walked 10 batters
while the Horsemen's pitch-
ing staff surrendered only 5.
Calhoun County's hurlers-
Matt Creamer, Jeremy and Ja-
son Barber--struck out 11 bat-
ters while Gulf County's Matt
Gannon and Phil McCroan
fanned 10.
Gannon earned the win for
the Drive. In 71/3 innings of
work he gave up 4 earned runs
off of 4 hits. He struck out 8
batters and issued 6 walks.
The Horsemen's Matt
Creamer was saddled with the
loss. Through 3 innings he al-
lowed 4 runs (all earned) off
of 4 hits. He fanned 4 batters
and gave up 4 walks.

Tea time at the Big Bend Hospice house

The Margaret Z. Dozier
House at Big Bend Hospice in
Tallahassee is a 12 bedroom
home away from home for Big
Bend Hospice patients needing
medical care beyond what can
be provided at home.,
Patients can receive expert
medical supervision around the
clock in this beautiful home
filled with light, art and per-
sonal touches. However, for
the many family members who
do not want to leave their loved
one's bedside, or for concerned
friends who visit day after day,
it can be both physically and
emotionally draining. Hos-
pice House manager Barbara
Roberts, RN wanted to find a
way to provide a social time
for patients and families that
would be relaxing, comforting
and healing. After some brain-
storming with Hospice staff,
Tea Time Tuesdays were con-
ceived. "It's nice to have real
china cups and fresh brewed
hot tea along with home baked
cookies or breads to serve in the
afternoon to exhausted families
andpatients," said Roberts. The
delicious smells drift through

play soft music on guitars or
on our grand piano, the staff
joins in and it is a wonderful
time of fellowship." Launched

in July, Tea Time Tuesdays has
become an eagerly anticipated
event each week. Patients and
families who cannot come out
to join in Tea Time are offered

tea and cookies in their room by
a volunteer. "It's amazing how
something so simple can mean
so much," commented Carla
Braveman, Big Bend Hospice
President and CEO. Comfort
food and drink go a long way
to reviving spirits and re-ener-
gizing tired's a
real "time out" during a stress-
ful time."
Each Tea Time features a
volunteer musician who plays
quiet background music which
provides a welcoming ambi-
ance. "The music really adds
to the experience," said Susan
Dugan, the Big Bend Hospice
Music Therapist who is based
at the Hospice House. It takes
those who attend to a quiet,
restful place and adds a lot to
the event."
The Tea Tiine Tuesday pro-
gram is looking for clubs or
organizations that would like
to adopt a Tuesday to serve tea.
In addition, anyone interested
in donating china teapots, cups
and saucers, as well as des-
sert plates to use at Tea Time,

Resource Management, Bureau
of Air Regulation
Draft Air Permit No. PSD-FL-407 /
Project No. 0770007-014-AC
North Florida Lumber, Inc.,
Bristol Sawmill
Liberty County, Florida
Applicant: The applicant for this
project is North Florida Lumber,
Inc. The applicant's authorized
representative and mailing address
is: Kenny Sparks, General Manager,
North Floridalumber, Inc., Bristol
Sawmill, P.O. Box 610, Bristol, FL,
Facility Location: North Florida
Lumber, Inc. operates the existing
Bristol Sawmill, which is located in
Liberty County nearthe intersection
of Highway 12 South and Highway
67 in Bristol, Florida.
Project: The proposed project will
expand the length of existing lumber
drying Kiln 2 from 85 to 227 feet and
modify itfrom a batch-process kiln to
triple length continuous (TLC) kiln.
For aTLC kiln, two streams of green
lumberwill enter at opposite ends of
the kiln and travel in countercurrent
directions, which allow incoming
green lumber to be preheated by
the outgoing dry lumber. Heat is
provided by a bank of steam coils
located between the lumber trams
and two banks of steam coils hung
from the roof. The green wood
slowly advances on trams through
the kiln from pre-conditioning to
drying to post-conditioning and
emerges 36 hours later at the
other end as dry lumber. In addi-
tion to moisture, the kiln drives off
volatile organic compounds (VOC),
methanol and formaldehyde from
the sap in the green lumber. The
maximum production capacity of
Kiln 2 will increase from 59,000,000
board-feet per year to 92,000,000
board-feet per year.
The project will result in a poten-
tial emissions increase of 117
tons of VOC per year. Since this
is greater than 100 tons of VOC
per year, the project results in a
significant net emissions increase
as defined in Rule 62-210.200 of
the Florida Administrative Code
(F.A.C.). Therefore, the project is
subject to preconstruction review
for the Prevention of Significant
Deterioration (PSD) of Air Quality
for this pollutant in accordance
with Rule 62-212.400, F.A.C. For
each PSD-significant pollutant,
the Department is required to de-
termine the Best Available Control
Technology (BACT) and approve
the applicant's Air Quality Analysis
regarding ambient impacts due to
the project.
The Department's preliminary
BACT determination for VOC
emissions from the kiln are based
on best operating practices to:
minimize over-drying in the lumber
kiln, maintain consistent moisture
content for the given charge of
lumber, and dry lumber at the mini-
mum kiln temperature. Although
VOC emissions are a precursor for
ozone, no air quality modeling was
required since there are no models
capable of determining the impacts
to ozone levels from such a small
increase. Data from the Depart-
ment's ambient monitoring stations
near Liberty County show the area
to be in attainment with the ambient
air quality standards for ozone. The-
proposed project will not adversely
impact the area.
Permitting Authority:Applications
for air construction permits are sub-
jectto review in accordance with the
provisions of Chapter 403, Florida

Statutes (F.S.) and Chapters 62-4,
62-210, and 62-212, F.A.C. The
proposed project is not exemptfrom
air permitting requirements and an
air permit is required to perform the
proposed work. The Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection's
Bureau of Air Regulation is the
Permitting Authority responsible
for making a permit determination
for this project. The Bureau of Air
Regulation's physical address is
111 South Magnolia Drive, Suite 4,
Tallahassee, Florida 32301 and the
mailing address is 2600 Blair Stone
Road, MS #5505, Tallahassee,

Notice of Intent to Issue Air Per-
mit: The Permitting Authority gives
notice of its intent to issue an air
permitto the applicant forthe project
described above.The applicant has
provided reasonable assurance that
operation of the proposed equip-
ment will not adversely impact
air quality and that the project will
comply with all applicable provisions
of Chapters 62-4, 62-204, 62-210,
62-212,62-296, and 62-297, F.A.C.
The Permitting Authority will issue
a Final Permit in accordance with
the conditions of the proposed
Draft Permit unless a timely peti-
tion for an administrative hearing
is filed under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, F.S. or unless public
comment received in accordance
with this notice results in a different
decision or a significant change of
terms or conditions.

ity will accept written comments
concerning the proposed Draft
Permit' and requests for a public
meeting fora period of 30 days from
the date of publication of the Public
Notice. Written comments must be

ing is requested within the 30-day
comment period and conducted by
the Permitting Authority, any oral
and written comments received
during the public meeting will also
be considered bythe PermittingAu-
thority. If timely received comments
result in a significant change to the
Draft Permit, the Permitting Author-
ity shall revise the Draft Permit
and require, if applicable, another
Public Notice. All comments filed
will be made available for public
Petitions: A person whose sub-
stantial interests are affected by
the proposed permitting decision
may petition for an administrative
hearing in accordance with Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The
petition must contain the information

set forth below and must be filed
with (received by) the Department's
Agency Clerk in the Office of Gen-
eral Counsel of the Department of
Environmental Protection, 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida

filed by any persons other than
those entitled to written notice under
Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be
filed within 14 days of publication
of this Public Notice or receipt of
a written notice, whichever occurs
first. UnderSection 120.60(3), F.S.,
however, any person who asked
the Permitting Authority for notice
of agency action may file a petition
within 14 days of receipt of that
notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the applicant
at the address indicated above,
at the time of filing. The failure of
any person to file a petition within
the appropriate time period shall
constitute a waiver of that person's
right to request an administrative
determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S.,
or to intervene in this proceeding
and participate as a party to it. Any
subsequent intervention (in a pro-
ceeding initiated by another party)
will be only at the approval of the
presiding officer upon the filing of
a motion in compliance with Rule
28-106.205, F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the mate-
rial facts on which the Permitting
Authority's action is based must
contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's
file or identification number, if
known; (b) The name, address, and
telephone number of the petitioner;
the name, address and telephone
number of the petitioner's repre-
sentative, if any, which shall be
the address for service purposes
during the course of the proceed-
ing; and an explanation of how the
petitioner's substantial interests will
be affected by the agency determi-
nation; (c)Astatement of when and
how each petitioner received notice
of the agency action or proposed
decision; (d) A statement of all dis-
puted issues of material fact; (e) A
concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the specific
facts the petitioner contends war-
rant reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action; (f) A
statement of the specific rules or
statutes the petitioner contends re-
quire reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action including
an explanation of how the alleged
facts relate to the specific rules or
statutes; and, (g) A statement of
the relief sought by the petitioner,
stating precisely the action the
petitioner wishes the agency to
take with respect to the agency's
proposed action.A petition that does
not dispute the material facts upon
which the Permitting Authority's ac-
tion is based shall state that no such
facts are in dispute and otherwise
shall contain the same information
as set forth above, as required by
Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate
final agency action, the filing of a
petition means that the Permitting
Authority's final action may be dif-
ferent from the position taken by
it in this Public Notice of Intent to
Issue Air Permit. Persons whose
substantial interests will be affected
by any such final decision of the
Permitting Authority on the appli-
cation have the right to petition to
become a party to the proceeding,

in accordance with the requirements
set forth above.

mechanical fuel reduction would
also facilitate the reintroduction
and maintenance of fire into the
forest ecosystem. The treatment
acres are in Compartments 85,
335, 348, 351, 352, 353 and 354
on the Apalachicola National For-
est. These areas are located in
sections T3S, R2W; T4S, R2W;
T5S, R2W; T5S, R3W; and T5S,

Mechanical treatments would
be used to create fire breaks up
to 75 feet in width. The first ap-
proximately 15 feet of these fire
breaks would be cleared of veg-
etation, and then periodically
brought down to mineral soil as
is typically done with fire breaks.
In the remainder of the width (ap-
proximately 60 feet) all shrubs and
hardwood trees under 10 inches
DBH, or up to the size limitation of
the equipment, would be mulched
or shredded. The mechanical
treatment would also be used for
reduction of mid- and understory
vegetation in other selected pine
stands in addition to two RCW
clusters and two RCW recruit-
ment stands. Pines would not be
targeted for removal with this proj-
ect, therefore, as many pines as
possible would be left. The treat-
ments would be accomplished us-
ing a Gyro-TracTM, SupertrakrM or
a similar mulcher/shredder, or with
equipment designed to remove
the vegetation for other uses such
as biomass. Cutting blades and
equipment would be set to mini-
mize ground disturbance. Occa-
sionally, manual labor with chain-
saws or other hand tools may also
be used. All acre quantities are
estimates based on preliminary

Shiver, 76, passed away Friday morning,
July 31, 2009 at his home after a long battle
with cancer. He was born in Altha on Dec.
12, 1932. He was the baby of nine children
born to R. Ashley and Mary P. Shiver. He was
a devoted family man; an adoring dedicated
husband, beloved daddy and doting grandaddy.
Brother Oliver was a faithful member of the
Chattahoochee Assembly of God Church and
sang bass in the choir. He loved the Lord and
witnessed without apology or shame.
He served in the Air Force in the Korean
War, then married his soul mate and moved
to Tampa. He retired from Continental Can
*Company in 1987 and relocated back to the
tri-county area to be near family in 1995. He
raised cows on his farm in Georgia, cut his own
hay, gardened and fished.
He was never too busy for family whom he
loved and cherished so very much. He was a
faithful friend to many in the surrounding area
and helped his neighbors until he became too ill.
Though God called him home too soon, he will
never be forgotten and will be deeply missed by
all whom he touched. May the peace of God rest
in our hearts as we celebrate his homecoming
with our Lord and Savior. We will miss you
always and await the blessed day when we can
see your face and hold you in our arms forever,
never to be separated again. His greatest prayers
was that his family, friends and fellow man
would not go out into eternity without knowing
the Lord Jesus as their personal Savior.
He was preceded in death by his parents;
brothers Jay and Julian Shiver; sisters, Vera
Wynn, Maude Owens and Inez Davis; nephews,.
Pete Doyal and Mike Norris; and a grand

Lookout for lawn problems during a wet summer

by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County
Midsummer is the most
active growth period for
our warm season lawns.
Unfortunately, it is also
the most active period for
insects and some diseases,
particularly if it has been a
wet summer.
Wet summers usually
mean more lawn cater-
pillars., Whenever small
brown moths fly up as you
mow, caterpillars are not
far behind. The moths are
there laying eggs'and the
caterpillars show up two to
three weeks later..
Young caterpillars chew

notches along the edge of
the leaves. This creates
a ragged appearance that
may be hard to notice at
first. Mafure caterpillars eat
a lot before they pupate and
consume patches of turf-
grass down to the crown.
Because the turf looks
scalped so quickly, people
think that the damage oc-
curs "overnight." Several
caterpillar species can be
turfgrass pests, including
the tropical sod webworm,
the fall armyworm, and the
striped grass looper.
For more information
on lawn caterpillars and
your control options, visit
the University of Florida
"Lawn Caterpillars" online

publication at
or call your lo-
cal Extension
Another in-
sect to be on the
lookout for is the
chinch bug. St.
lawns are par-
ticularly suscep-
tible 'to chinch
bug injury now.
The adults of this
insect are only
about 1/5 of an
inch long. They
are black with
what appears
to be a white
"X" across their
backs where
their wings fold
over. The imma-
ture nymphs may
be pink to brown

Wet summers usually mean more lawn caterpillars. Whenever small
brown moths fly up as you mow, caterpillars are not far behind.

with a single white line
across their backs.
To find these tiny insects
you will need to part the turf
canopy to the soil surface
along a line where there
is a change from damaged
yellowing turf to healthy
green turf. They move rath-
er quickly, so keep an alert
eye for their scurrying back
into the turf.
These insects are some-
what unique in that they
prefer hot sunny areas of
the lawn over shade so their
injury symptoms generally
appear in the open front

lawn area first.

Week of
Aug. 16 to Aug. 22

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, don't worry when a con-
flict arises at work. Things will
simmer down rather quickly, so
don't spend much time thinking
about finding a resolution.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Taurus, there's no time like the
present to embark on that home
improvement you've been consid-
ering. Encourage others to give
you some friendly assistance.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Gemini, if you've been thinking
about taking a trip, now is the time
to do so. Grab a friend or family
member to take the ride with you
and it will be much more fun.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
. Cancer, you have been feeling
under the weather, and you can't
seem to bounce back quickly. Rest
is key this week. There's no point
in getting even more run down.

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Lions may be the king of the
jungle, Leo, but this week you're
having trouble mustering a
meow. Get your energy back so
that you can enjoy your birthday.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, a move you made a few
weeks back is not panning out as
you had hoped. You just can't seem
to get along with your new house-
mate. It may be time to move again.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
It seems you have been taking ad-
vantage of loved ones, Libra, and
now is the time to change your
ways. Do more for those you love
and you will receive it in return.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, you want to run the
show this week and others will
be anxious to let you. Don't let
the power go to your head or else
you'll make enemies very quickly.

A friend in need has you running,
Sagittarius. But don't be so quick
to jump every time this person
beckons or else the situation could
get out of control very quickly.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
A lot on your plate at work,
Capricorn? If you feel like you're
doing too much it may be time
to start speaking up about your
workload. Don't get worn out.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
The finances should be an open
book with your partner, Aquarius.
Controlling spending is a way to
cause arguments; this is a two-
way street. Start seeing it as so.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
Pisces, if plans don't work out
the way you expected this week
don't get discouraged. Bounce
back and set a new agenda.
