by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
got an earful at a Town Hall
meeting in Blountstown
He was told he needed
a big salary cut,'given "
recommendations for
new legislation and.
reminded, "You work
for us."
Health care reform,
fiscal responsibility
and the energy crisis
were the hot topics. There
were plenty of people who
wanted to talk at the standing-
room-only gathering, which
lasted about 90 minutes.
The Concerned American
Patriots of Jackson County, part of
the Tea Party Patriot mo\ emient,
came armed with signs, portable
billboard filled with hand% written
messages and plenty of questions
for the congressman.

Leonard Hall, a former
Calhoun County resident, dre%%
loud applause for two suggestions.
First, he said that we should
"cut congressmen's salaries
immediately by 35 percent." He
said that cut should extend to each
of their congressional offices.
"And for each year that
congress has not implemented a
balanced budget, we should cut
another five percent," he added.
Boyd responded, "I have spent
most of my career working on the
national debt and the deficit," and
reminded the group, "I was one
of the ones who put in place the
National Budget Act."
Hall then told Boyd, "If you

-^. ,

really want to solve the
energy problem, build 35 or 40
nuclear plants." The audience
showed approval with applause,
cheers and whistles.
As he concluded his remarks,
Hall wagged his finger at the
congressman and said, "One of
the things I really want you to tell
Obama: Transparency!"

"The Blue Dog Coalition
is funded by the Health Care
Industry," Patty Wood of
Clarksville told Boyd before
asking him, "Do you think you
can serve two masters, the health

care industry and us?"
"That's unfair,"
Boyd said. "Irepresent
S your interests and
nobody else's."
Speaking of the
S1ioposed health
care plans, she
complained about the
lack of information for
the general public. "I
want to be briefed in a
language all my fellow
citizens can understand,"
she said.

When her turn to speak
came, the first thingAltha science
teacher Sally Sims said was, "I
want to assure you that I'm not
from an\ organized group."
Before coming to the meeting,
Sims asked five of her co-workers
what they thought of the Health
Care Bill. "They said they didn't
\\ant it no way, no how." she
told the congressman, and then
added, "Sonime of the things they
said %were not repeatable."
Many of the speakers didn't
stop at asking questions; they made
statements and suggestions of
their own. When the congressman
tried to prompt her next question,
Sims told him that he was just
going to have to wait a minute,
"because I had to wait on you."
She said she believed that for
each person who told her they
were against the current Health
Care proposal, "There are about
100 others that would like to say
the same thing."

Vandals damage light fixtures at

Veterans Memorial Park in Bristol
Vandals destroyed more
than 14 lights that line the trail
at Veterans Memorial Park
in Bristol, where volunteers .
have worked hard to create
a place for families to enjoy.
'The destruction of the park
and its facilities will affect
everyone who uses it,"
said park volunteer Gloria
Keenan. Park visitors are
urged to report any acts
of vandalism or suspicious
activity on the grounds. "If
each person who enjoys
the park through the A,,
playground, ball fields, civic
center or the train would be
an automatic park volunteer,
abiding by simple 'Keep Our
Park Beautiful' rules and
requesting others to do so,
perhaps we canr control this
vandalism before it gets
to the point that it will be
too costly for the county to
repair," Keenan said. She
added that anyone found
vandalizing the park will be
arrested and prosecuted.

then went outside to hand over the
pills. The man in the truck then
gave the informant a small white
package which tested positive for

Alert employees thwart KFC robbery attempt

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Arobbery attempt was thwarted
when KFC workers pushed a door
closed on a masked man holding
a gun Friday night.
The suspect came to the back
door after two employees took
a load of trash to the dumpster
and went back inside to get
another around 9 p.m., leaving the
exterior door unlocked, said KFC
General Manager Wisty Taylor.
The would-be robber began
waving and hissing to get the
attention of KFC cook Adrian
White, who was cleaning nearby,
Taylor said. She speculated that
he was trying to get the only male
employee out of the way before

entering the restaurant to rob
it. White later told officers the
suspect was motioning for him
to come to the back door.
Not sure if it was a prank,
White quickly went through an
interior door leading to the main
area of the store, locked it and
summoned KFC Shift Manager
Patty Knight. The two went
together to the interior door, armed
with a broomstick, according to
Taylor. They unlocked it but the
suspect held the door closed for a
few moments. When they finally
got the door opened, they pushed
the suspect back and poked the
broomstick at him until Knight
realized he was holding a gun.

BPD for


leading to

an arrest
She told the employees, "Run.
He's got a gun!" and held the door
closed as the others raced out a
front door, said Taylor. She and
White then went out a side door.
The business had just closed
for the night when the robbery

attempt was made. "Obviously,
he kind of knew our timing and
our schedule," Taylor said, adding
that in the future, "We'll take the
garbage out the front door."
The suspect wore a black
ski mask, black clothing and
brown gloves. BPD Chief Glenn
Kimbrel said the witnesses could
not tell what race the man was.
Officers and tracking dogs
combed the area behind the
store, which adjoins the Southern
Express on the east end of
Blountstown, but were unable to
locate the suspect. They followed
footprints from the building to the
Greenway Trail, and continued
tracking the suspect south to the

intersection of River Street and
Ray Avenue.
A reward is offered for
information leading to an arrest,
Kimbrel said.
Working with Knight and
White on that shift were Kelli
Odom and Ashley Brown. There
were two other convenience store
employees on the other side of the
building at the time.
"Nobody got hurt and no
money was taken," said Taylor,
who added, "I'm proud as punch
at my whole team."
She said, "Patty and Adrian
were the heros of the day. If it
hadn'tbeen forthem, I don't know
what would have happened."

Bristol man dies following

bush hog accident at home

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Services were held Tuesday for
a Bristol man who died following
a tractor accident behind his
Deputies and emergency
services workers who rushed
to the State Road 20 residence
of O.B. Shuler just after 5 p.m.
Monday found him trapped under
a bush hog that was attached to
a tractor, according to the report
from the Liberty County Sheriff's
The 82-year-old man was face
down on the ground with his
arms over his head, facing the

rear of the tractor. The bush hog
covered him from his shoulders
to his feet.
The blades of the bush hog had
severed one leg and nearly taken
off the other. The equipment was
not running when help arrived.
Deputy Andrea Skrabal
disconnected the PTO of the
bush hog to keep the blade from
turning before it could be raised
and the injured man could be
pulled free.
Shuler had turned blue and was
not breathing, but Deputy Caryl
Marotta detected a faint pulse
and began chest compressions.
He began breathing again and
had a steady pulse. Sgt. Jamie
Shiver helped maintain his air
supply as EMTs got him ready
for transport.
Despite the severity of his

injuries, "He was hanging in there
and fighting," said Marotta. She
said she could feel him respond
as a family member kept calling
to him while he was still pinned
to the ground.
He was transported by
ambulance to the landing site at
the LCHS football field, where
he was put on an emergency
helicopter and taken to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital.
He was in critical condition
following surgery around 10:30
p.m. He died the following
morning at 1 a.m.
A lifelong resident of Liberty
County, he was a former school
superintendent. He was the father
of four daughters and had ten

Healthcare reform? Probably not

. America's healthcare debate has turned
into something resembling a Jerry Spring-
er show. Shouting, shoving, intimidating,
lies and threats. Not a pretty sight.
I have a simple view of the First Amend-
ment. Within reason, people can state their
views no matter how offensive they may
be to someone else. It's simple. You talk, I
listen. I talk, you listen. Whether we ever
agree or not is immaterial. We both have

a exercisedd our First Amendment rights-we had the opportunity
4 0 to state our views, say our piece.
- But, having said our piece, what next? In theory, our elect-
-* ed representatives have listened to both of us. That is his or
her obligation; listen to their constituents. However, after lis-
_, tening, what next?
So No surprise here. Our elected representatives can't satisfy
o both of us. I'm for the plan, but my fellow citizen is against
the plan. What is an elected official to do? If the issue is in-
creasing taxes, then it's an easy call for the politician. Vote
against it, but if it is a complicated issue which requires taxes
be increased to cover the healthcare cost, then the politician's
S answer is to tap dance, shuck and jive and weasel out a wa-
S ~ tered-down compromise without jeopardizing his or her re-
election opportunities.
What do politicians do? Spin it. Tell us what a good deal
we're getting. Oh, hey, don't worry, be happy. It could be
To avoid tyranny of the majority, which can occur with pure
o_ democracy, the Founding Fathers devised this thing called
"representative government." We elect representatives to gov-
ernmental organizations to handle our collective affairs.
While the theory of representative government is a good
thing, the practicality of it is questionable. I guess the Found-
ing Fathers assumed that elected representatives would always
do what is best for most of the people most of the time. Un-
-- fortunately, the Founding Fathers did not anticipate the advent
S of lobbyists.
MO Lobbyists are acceptable in our form of government be-
cause the general view is that lobbyists are only exercising
their First Amendment rights, but they exercise that right with
money. When we talk, politicians may hear us, but they really
hear the sound of coins pouring into their campaign coffers.
The idea that people have as much influence on their elected
S- representatives as lobbyists is a pipedream.
S- The current healthcare debate is really a debate about the
role of insurance and pharmaceutical companies in the health-
care industry. The effect of insurance and pharmaceutical
company lobbyists on politicians is highlighted in the August

N 17, 2009 Business Week (BW) cover story.
XK S The title of the article written by Chad Ter-
RN ER hune and Keith Epstein is "Why Health In-
surers are Winning."
retired military The -focus of this article is the United-
with an extensive Health Group that has paid special attention
domestic and
to Democrats in the current healthcare de-
sues. He lives in
bate. Why? With the exceptions of a cou-
ple of moderates, Republicans in the Con-
gress universally oppose healthcare reform.
Read that as opposing healthcare insurance reform.
To quote the BW article, "UnitedHealth's relationship with
Democratic Senator Mark R. Warner of Virginia illustrates
the industry's subtle role." According to the article, "Elected
last fall, Warner, a former governor of his state and a wealthy
ex-businessman, received a choice assignment as the Senate
Democrats' liaison to business. The rookie senator landed in
the center of a high-visibility political drama-and in a posi-
tion to earn the gratitude of a health insurance industry that
donated more than $19 million to federal candidates since
2007, 56% which has gone to Democrats."
This healthcare debate isn't about whether your doctor pre-
scribes the correct pills for your ailment. This debate is about
money, lots of money.
TRICARE is a component of the Military Health System.
There are three U.S. regions plus an European, Latin America
and Asian Region. Insurance companies under contract to
the TRICARE Management Activity manage the three U.S.
regions. The South Region that services Florida has 2.9 mil-
lion beneficiaries. According to Tom Philpott, syndicated col-
umnist of Military Update, UnitedHealth Military & Veterans
Services of Minnetonka, Minn. (a unit of UnitedHealth Group)
has won the contract to administer the South Region for $21.9
billion. This contract is under protest with the Government
Accountability Office by the losing insurance company.
Those opposing the public option scream that they don't
want a bureaucrat between them and their doctor. Guess
what. The insurance companies that manage these regions
get between you and your doctor. How? Humana which lost
the contract for the South Region offered TRICARE PRIME
,throughout the 10-state region. The new South Region con-
tract limits PRIME coverage to within 40 miles of a military
base. Coverage outside the 40-mile area cost the beneficiary
more. Taking care of the troops.
Unfortunately, President Obama's effort to resolve the
pending bankruptcy of the healthcare system is going to be
drilling another dry hole. I hope the naysayers remember who
killed the Golden Goose when Medicare, Social Security and
Medicaid implode.

Tommy Duggar owns a rare breed of mule called a hinny. Hinny mules are a cross
between a horse and a donkey. There are several different breeds of mules that can
come from this, however the most rare is the hinny.
Mules and hinnies are hybrid animals resulting from the breeding of a horse and a
donkey. Mules are considered when a donkey (also'called a jack) is bred to a female
horse. The foal that results is sterile and has long ears, taking after the mother. A
hinny results when a donkey (female, also called a jenny) is bred to a male horse (also
called a stallion or stud). A hinny has shorter ears than a mule because it takes after
the father. A hinny will be the result only about 10% of the time.
PJ (also known as Pistol Jr.) was born in June, and has lived on the Duggar farm
with Tommy's other mules. He has five total, two jennies, two jacks and of course PJ,
a hinny.
Clementine, PJ's mother was bred with a Paint stallion named Pistol who belongs
to Tommy's son. .Pistol is a large horse, measuring 16 hands tall and Clementine is a
regular sized jenny. She is expecting another baby soon, a donkey this time.
Tommy is very proud of his mules. They run to meet him when he pulls up in his little
red truck. They get pats on the head and Bill, one of the Jack mules, loves to be ridden
without a saddle or bridle. "He is very gentle with my 10-year-old grandson," Tommy
Tommy and his herd of mules live with chickens, roosters and approximately 60

Socialism a real threat
To the editor,
Hitler wanted the Jews to go quietly into the gas chamber, and it
seems the socialist left wants us (We the People) to keep quiet while
they destroy the free enterprise system and kill the older people with
health care rationing. I for one intend to scream at the top of my
lungs as long as I can. I won't begin to answer the illogical rant
that government is not trying to take over health care because it is
blatantly obvious that is exactly what the socialist Democrats are up
If anyone is too loud it is the futile whining of the socialists as mil-
lions of Americans stand up for their country and themselves in the
face of a federalist takeover. You can label them loud and call them
a mob but those are Americans who have finally realized socialism
is a real threat to our way of life. Even Pravda and Hugo Chavez
have commented on the rush to socialism in the United States. God
willing, the real Americans will stop it at any cost and at any volume
Sacrificing our older citizens so we can take care of millions of
illegal immigrants is not my idea of the respect our elderly or the
handicapped deserve. Free health care is not the treatment we should
give those who disrespect our borders and our laws. Yes I am a loud-
mouth along with millions of other sensible intelligent Conservative
Americans who are not members of the Republican Party and intend
never to be either socialist or Republican'.

Failure to pass health care bill

is a life or death issue for many

To the editor:
Every year, tens of thousands
of Americans will ignore that
little pain they feel because they
can not afford a hundred dollars
for a doctor visit, hundreds of
dollars for several tests, and pos-
sibly tens of thousands of dollars
for a procedure. And in a few
years, many of those people will
die decades before their time be-
cause that pain was a symptom
of an underlying health problem
which needed to be taken care of
When Americans exercise
their "free speech" by spread-
ing fear and lies about proposed
health care plans, they are sen-
tencing many thousands of other
Americans to an untimely death.
This goes way beyond shout-
ing "Fire!" in a crowded theater.
This is a slow genocide, carried
out on Americans by Americans
who -- knowingly or unwittingly
-- are acting as mouthpieces for
the status-quo, corporate medi-
cal system and insurance system
in America.
We know who these killer
Americans are -- we have videos
of them disrupting Town Hall
meetings where concerned citi-
zens come to discuss America's
health care crisis. We have their
names on articles packed with
misinformation and outright
lies. We have videos of them
giving speeches about "govern-
ment death panels." But more
importantly, we know who their
ringleaders are: Fox News, Fox
News Talk, Rush Limbaugh,

Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill
O'Reilly, etc.
When a health care reform
bill fails to pass this year -- and
it likely will fail -- the families
of all those uninsured Americans
who die an untimely death over
the next few years should get
together for a class action law-
suit against the ringleaders who
helped to kill not only this bill
but thousands of Americans as
well. The well-paid propagan-

dists who are lying through their
teeth in order to protect the out-
rageous profits of insurance com-
panies and pharmaceutical com-
panies should be left penniless,
unemployed... and fully covered
under a decent health insurance

Conservatives to meet

September 1 in Hosford

To the editor,
Startling changes have been
happening in America at the di-
rection of this new Democratic
administration, and these chang-
es have been occurring rapidly.
The government is growing,
the deficit is growing, and the
Democratic initiative promises a
growth in taxes for ourselves and
our children and grandchildren.
This appears to be just the be-
ginning of things to come, as the
Cap, and Trade proposal ensures
skyrocketing energy bills, the
Health care initiative essentially
guarantees government control'
of the nation's health care and a-
decrease in quality of that health
care, and other proposals threat-
en our 2nd Amendment right to
bear arms. In effect, govern-
ment, the deficit, and our taxes
are expanding and threatening
the very things that make our na-

tion great, and threaten the fab-
ric of what it means to be a free
At the heart of these changes
that Obama and his administra-
tion promised us is a liberal, left
wing agenda that looks 'much
.more like socialism than the
Conservative. Capitalistic so-
ciety our founders constructed'
based on the %atues and prin-
ciples much more similar to
our own. This administration
is transforming our great na-
tion into something that will
be a far cry from what wve have
been used to, and what the cur-
rent generation and generations
that have precede us have fought,
so hard to defend. The current
transformation is coming from
within our own government.
This is a far more dangerous and
effective way to fundamentally
change our society, and they are
succeeding to date, passing their
initiatives with blinding speed.
Local Conservatives need to
join forces to have a voice, and
to help contribute to the state
and national scene in fighting
against the things that most of
us oppose. Whether you are a
Democrat or Republican, if you
do not support the concepts of
more government, more spend-
ing, more deficits, more taxes,
and more restrictions on your
individual liberty, then please
take action today. We will be
having a meeting on Sept. 1 at
the Hosford/Telogia VFD at 7
p.m. While God is the owner of
all things, "We the People" are
responsible to steadfastly and re-
sponsibly manage the freedoms
that have been endowed upon
us. We are the true owners of the
direction this nation will take in
the years to come.

FWC asks beachgoers

to protect the hatchlings

Nesting season for three spe-
cies of endangered sea turtles
is well under way on the sandy
beaches along Florida's Atlantic
and Gulf of Mexico shores.
Eggs from threatened log-
gerhead, endangered green, and
endangered leatherback sea tur-
tles have been incubating in the
warm sand for 45 days or more.
Soon baby'sea turtles, or hatch-
lings, will begin their journey
up through the sand, across the
beach, into the waves and across
miles of open water out to the
weed lines. There they will feed
and grow, and many loggerheads
will return to Florida's coastal
waters as juvenile and subadults
to feed.
Female sea turtles often re-
turn to nest on the same sandy
beaches where they hatched.
Florida's beachfront resi-
dents and visitors can help those
hatchlings make it safely to the
sea, according to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
"By following a few simple
guidelines, residents and visitors
can ensure those hatchlings will
reach the water safely and en-
sure the cycle will continue far
into the future," said Dr. Robbin
Trindell of the FWC's Imper-
iled Species Management Pro-
gram. "Both nesting females and
hatchlings have evolved to find
the bright horizon over the open
ocean as they move across the
dark nighttime beach."
Beachfront lights, bright

flashlights and lanterns on the
beach can confuse them, caus-
ing .female sea turtles to leave
without nesting, and adults and
hatchlings to become trapped on
the beach. The FWC urges beach
residents and visitors to keep
the beaches dark by managing
beachfront lighting.
Turn off lights that are not
needed for human safety, and
focus other lights directly where
they are needed, limiting the
amount of light spill or trespass
onto the nesting beach. Shield
light sources and use appropriate
bulbs such as red or amber LEDs
or bug bulbs. These bulbs emit
a long-wavelength light that is
less likely to confuse or disori-
ent adult or hatchling sea turtles
on the beach. If you must use
a flashlight on the beach, keep
the beam focused on the ground
in front of you. Do not point it
down the beach or toward the
As part of a grant from the

County officials, chamber representatives, MissAltha queens and Town ofAltha employees dig up the first few shovels of dirt to
kick off construction on the new Altha water system Thursday. JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTOS

Altha breaks ground for new

water system improvements

Investment in infrastructure.
has far reaching impacts on
the quality of life enjoyed by
residents, the strength of local
economies and the health of the
natural environment. With as-
sistance from the United States
Department of Agriculture
(USDA) Rural Development,
the Town of Altha is upgrading
its water system to bring reliable
water service to the area. With
the official groundbreaking cer-
emony held on Thursday, Aug.
13 town officials are set to over-
see improvements to -municipal
water production to meet the
area's growing water needs.
The town first established
a centralized water system to
serve its residents in 1962, and
over 45 years later, a number
of issues affect the current wa-
ter system including inadequate
water storage, which does not
meet Florida Department of
Environmental Protection regu-
lations; an existing well with a
relatively high concentration
level of hydrogen sulfide, which
produces undesirable odor .and
taste; inadequate fire flow ca-
pability due to low water pres-
sure; too few fire hydrants; and
water mains of inadequate size.-
Rural Development is proving
$766,000 ($436,000 Loan and
$330,000 Grant) along with a
600,000 Community Develop-
ment Block Grant provided by
the State of Florida toward con-
struction of the water system

Improvements of the existing
water plant at Bodiford Road
consistofconstructing a 124,000
gallon ground storage tank, the
addition of service pumps that
will provide adequate system
pressure and the inclusion of
aeration into the system which
will mitigate problems resulting
from hydrogen sulfide.
Approximately 18,500 LF of,
water main will be replaced with
6" diameter water mains with
fire hydrants and gate valves
added to improve fire protection
and maintainability. Additional
construction includes a control
building, grading, stormwater
facilities and electrical upgrades
to the existing well site.
"Water is an increasingly
precious resource in Florida,
and many rural communities
don't have the capital for criti-
cal infrastructure improvements
needed for a safe and sanitary

water supply," said Rural De- tor, Joseph Mueller. "Through
velopment Acting State Direc- this project here in Altha, and

others like it, Rural Develop-
ment is helping bring safe and
reliable drinking water to com-
munities across America."

public awareness for the envi-

people to go out and make a dif-

the struggle for environmental
justice, information on renew-
able energy or an educational
tale about an endangered 'spe-
cies, the films expose people
to forward-thinking ideas and

vide solutions, reaching people
through beautiful imagery like
the sweeping landscapes of the
Tallgrass Prairie or the grandeur
of the rivers around the world.

New record number of

volunteer hours at parks B

Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection's (DEP)
Florida Park Service announced
a new record for volunteer hours
during the 2008-09 fiscal year.
More than 6,000 volunteers
contributed more than 1.2 mil-
lion hours of service to Florida's
state parks last year a 53,000
hour increase from the previous
fiscal year and a record high for
the park service.
"This record number demon-
strates the outstanding commit-
ment and stewardship to Flori-
da's environment demonstrated
by state park volunteers," said
DEP's Florida Park Service Di-
rector Mike Bullock. "The con-
tributions of park volunteers
alongside our dedicated staff are
sincerely appreciated and equate
to roughly 581 full-time posi-
tions saving the state $24 mil-
Volunteers contribute to the
Florida Park Service in a va-
riety of ways to help maintain
the natural beauty of Florida's

beaches, waterways and trails -
participating as interpreters, tour
guides, greeters, landscape art-
ists and resource custodians.
"Florida's state parks are
the perfect venue for residents
and visitors to spend time out-
doors while giving back to lo-
cal communities," said Elaine
McLaughlin, president of the
Friends of Florida State Parks,
the statewide citizen support or-
ganization for the Florida Park
The first two-time Gold Med-
al winner honoring the nation's
best state park service, Florida's
state park system is one of the
largest in the country with 160
parks, most of which are open
365 days a year.
Florida's state parks, which
span more than 700,000 acres
and include more than 100 miles
of sandy white beach, provide
an affordable outing for people
of all ages.

Hosford VFD, donates truck to Rock Bluff

The Rock Bluff, Roy & Sweetwater Volunteer
Fire Department recently received its fourth
truck, thanks to the Hosford VFD. The 1984
GMC firetruck, shown above, "is in very
good shape," according to Rock Bluff VFD
Chief Bill Anderson. He said the vehicle will
require a bit of work "but nothing major."
Before then, the Rock Bluff firefighters were
depending on a 1965 model firetruck. The
Bristol Fire Department has also passed on
some much-needed used equipment to Rock
Bluff. "They've given us fire hoses, air tanks,

turnout gear and we just got a pump for one
of our other trucks," the chief said, noting that
kind of mutual assistance is a big help to a
small department like his. "We've got about
18 volunteers and we're always looking for
more," Anderson said, noting that another
firefighting training session is planned Aug.
22 at the Rock Bluff Community Center, which
adjoins the firehouse on Torreya Park Road.
The VFD meets the fourth Thursday of each
month and the meeting is set for Aug. 27.

Our hearts still ache

Both members and volunteers sought

It's enrollment time

for Liberty Co. 4-H
from the Liberty County Extension Office
# It's a new year and we are ready to get started. New
enrollment starts Sept. 1 for Liberty County 4-H. There
are a variety of opportunities for youth, ages 5 to 18, to
learn and get involved in their community.
Here are a few things that you can do: Community
service, Public Speaking, Small animal projects, 4-H Camp & Day
Camps, Gardening, Train your dog Share the Fun, Gain leadership
skills, ATV safety, 4-H Tropicana Public Speaking, Career develop-
ment, GPS, Performing arts, Sports Fishing, Photography, Shooting
Sports, Livestock projects, Rocketry, Robotics, Sewing, Teen coun-
cil, Money management, Consumer education, Food & Nutrition.
Youth can experience 4-H through non-competitive and competi-
tive projects, events and programs at the local, county, district, state
and national level. Opportunities like project books, field days, tal-
ent shows, fairs and contests offer ways to learn new skills and meet
new friends.
How can youth get involved? By joining or becoming involved
in a 4-H club, 4-H after school, 4-H in the classroom and 4-H camps
during the year.
Why should you as an adult volunteer? People volunteer for 4-H
for many reason. However, there is a special sense of accomplish-
ment in helping a new generation of young people grow and learn.
Each of us has individual perspectives, knowledge, skills and tal-
ents that have been gained through life experience. More and more
youth need the values, skills and guidance of 4-H volunteers. Just
think how much the next generation could benefit from your lifetime
of experience. We need 4-H volunteers to benefit Liberty County
youth and share your knowledge, skills and talents with them so they
can grow to become an active participant in the future.
For more information on how you can make a difference in Lib-
erty County 4-H call at 850-643-2229.

New plants to try this year

The fun of gardening is trying
out new plants. Sometimes we
are pleasantly surprised and
sometimes we are just surprised.
Here are a few of the "new-to-
me" plants I am trying.
The sword bean is an attention
grabber. With its 12 to 14-inch
long seedpod, this legume is an
eye catcher. Other names for
the sword bean are Chickasaw
lima bean, Brazilian broad bean,
coffee bean, horse bean, mole
bean and raba de burro.
The sword bean, known
scientifically as Canavalia
gladiata, is not eaten very
frequently, but has the potential
to become a food source. The ripe
seeds can be eaten after cooking,
but only after removing the
seed-coat and several changes
of water. The seed is used as
feed for cattle and chicken,
but if eaten in considerable
quantity dry seeds may cause
Swordbeanis grown primarily
as an ornamental in the U.S. It
is used as a climber on fences
and houses. This aggressive
vine quickly covers a trellis
and produces pretty purple-pink
Another vine that took me by
surprise is calabaza. Sometimes
referred to as West Indian
pumpkin or green pumpkin,

by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County

calabaza (Cucurbita moschata)
belongs to the squash family. It
is grown throughout the tropics
and sub-tropics.
This large, pumpkin-like
winter squash grows on very
long, trailing vines. The large
leaves are lobed with branching
tendrils. The flowers are yellow
and pollination is done by
Calabaza is round in shape
and varies in size. It can be as
large as a watermelon or as small
as a cantaloupe. The color of
calabaza can also vary and may
include greens, tans, reds and
oranges. Some squash are all
one color while others are multi-
colored and may include all the
colors listed above. This squash
is popular in the Caribbean
as well as Central and South
According to references,
calabaza has a sweet flavor and
its texture is firm. This is similar
to the taste and texture of more
familiar varieties of squash,
such as butternut or acorn. Since
mine are not quite ready, I'll let
you know about the taste.
Another "new-to-me" plant

is the voodoo lily, specifically
Amorphophallus bulbifer. It's
one of the prettiest of the voodoo
lilies and the inflorescence
doesn't smell bad compared
to its well known cousin, the
corpse flower.
Amorphophallus bulbifer'
gets its name due to the bulbils
that form on top of the leaves.
The bulbils are like "little bulbs"
and when the plant goes dormant
they fall to the ground and start
new plants the next spring.
This plant likes the shade
and is an attractive feature to
a shady corner. In spring, you
will see a flower if the tuber
is mature enough, if not then
you will get a leaf. The dark
green leaf and spotted stems
provide an unusual look in the
landscape. The "flower" is
characterized by a compound
inflorescence composed of
numerous tightly packed florets
on a rod shaped "spadix" which
is often surrounded by a leaf like
bract or spathee". The spathe is
about 8 inches long with a rosy
colored throat.
These "not so common"
plants are difficult to find in
stores. I've been lucky enough
to be given seeds by other
passionate gardeners. Perhaps
you have a gardener friend that
would be willing to share.

Week of
Aug. 23 to Aug. 29

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, recuperation from an
injury or illness will take time.
Don't try to do it all now. You'll
have plenty of time to catch
u1i in the weeks to come.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Stop being so argumentative,
Taurus. Those around you will
grow tired of hearing how you're
always right. Accept that some-
o e else's opinion might be valid.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Gemini, your love life could use some
work. You can't seem to get along
with your partner no matter what you
do. Instead of butting heads, sit
down and calmly work it out.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, instead of being so
generous to others, start concen-
trating on helping your immedi-
ate family. They're in need of
your love and attention. Quality
family time is the goal.

LEO Jul23/Aug23
Normally a go-getter, Leo,
you're ready to throw in the
towel in regard to a project that
isn't working out. But don't give
up. You'll get relief soon.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, now is not the time to
make rash career decisions. You
have too many responsibilities
and bills coming in. Even though
your job may not appeal to
you, stick with it.

LIBRA- Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, if you don't make a move
soon in your love life, you're go-
ing to miss the opportunity. Stop,
looking for the perfect Mr. or
Mrs. Right. Rather, look outside
your comfort zone.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Watch how much you spend this
week, Scorpio. You could go
overboard if you're not paying
attention. Better leave the credit
card at home and use cash instead.

Sagittarius, you have put all your
eggs in one basket and now that
things haven't worked out you're left
wondering what to do. Don't worry,
family members won't let you down.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Someone in your family has
stepped on your toes, Capricorn.
Rather than lash out, keep your
feelings to yourself and be the
bigger person in this situation.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
You want to support a friend,
Aquarius, but you just don't
agree with this person's motives.
Don't get involved in the
situation; you'll regret it later.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
Pisces, overindulging in all areas
of your life is not a healthy way
to live. Rethink your personal
goals and streamline.

The audience stood up and applauded when Altha science teacher Sally Sims reminded the congressman who he worked for. She is
shown above with Allen Boyd as both try to takethe microphone. PHOTOS BY JOHNNY EUBANKS AND TERESA EUBANKS


As Boyd tried to move on to the next speaker,
Sims drew cheers from the audience that stood up
and applauded when she said sharply, "You work
for me!"
She kept her hand on the microphone the
congressman held and wasn't ready to let it go
when he tried to call on the next speaker. With
some difficulty and a few scattered boos from the
audience the congressman moved on.
Sims later said she was encouraged at the start
of the meeting, "But as it progressed, I was very,
very disappointed because it was clear to me he
didn't want to hear what I had to say."
She said she doesn't understand why the.
proponents of the Health Care Bill can't tell us
what it is. "When we ask questions, they only tell
us what it's not."
She continued, "If they expect us to buy into
it, we must understand what it is. I do not have
time to read a 1,000-page bill. I pay him (Boyd)
to do that."

At times, constituents at the W.T. Neal Civic
Center lost patience as they sat with their hands
raised in hopes of asking a question. As the meeting
progressed, some walked up to the congressman to

let him know they were ready to talk.
Gary Calhoun of Blountstown stepped forward
and opened his wallet to show Boyd his driver's
license to prove that he was a county resident
living in his voting district and stated, "I do not
represent anyone."
Calhoun, who had been patiently sitting in the
back holding a sign reading, "Listen to us now
or hear us in 2010," asked Boyd why citizens
should trust congress with health care "when they
bankrupted Social Security?"

Dr. Carol Sutton of Blountstown read a couple
of proposals to the congressman. "Since it took
the president six months to select a pet dog for
his family of four, I propose the president take at
least 12 months to select a Health Care Reform
Plan for us 303 million Americans."
Noting the 1,000-page length of the Health
Care Proposal, she suggested that all bills
presented to Congress "be limited to 50 or less
pages so everyone can read it."

NEXT WEEK: Readabout Congressman Boyd's _______m"%-m-
Liberty County Town Hall meeting, held Tuesday ABOVE: Brianna Wilkinson, 7, and her-sister, five-year-old Amber,
afternoon at the Liberty County Courthouse. joined their grandmother and a contingent of Marianna residents
at Tuesday's Town Hall Meeting in Blountstown.
