Sale set for Sept. 24

on courthouse steps

Sky reaches

limit; lender

to foreclose

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
An effort to build an energy-efficient
community in Calhoun County is in danger
of running out of steam after the developer
defaulted on the 571-acre property.
The Clarksville property,which borders
State Road 20, was stated to be ihe site of
a model project called "Sky" a cozy
environment of cluster homes in walkable
neighborhoods, with gardens and riding
trails. The goal was to eventually evolve
into a self-sustaining neighborhood that
could go off the power grid.
"The economy has brought us to our
knees," said project designer and White
Starr President Julie Starr Sanford. "Our
financial resources have been exhausted
and we're trying to replenish."
She holds out hope that the project
could be saved. "We're working diligently
to secure financing," she said Tuesday.
Despite the foreclosure, "We haven't given
up and we don't intend to give up."
An auction for the land will be held
on the steps of the Calhoun County
Courthouse Thursday, Sept. 24 at 11 a.m.
(CT) unless the company secures investors
in time.
Sanford said the company will continue
to work on financing efforts up to the day
of the sale.
The new owner may get a bargain but
will have to start from scratch if he or she
attempts to pick up where Sky developer
Bruce D. White left off.
The Calhoun County Commission
agreed to modify the comprehensive plan
to make the site a multi-use property for
industrial use, mixed use and residential.
But it was a one-time only offer. "We
had it in our comprehensive plan that if it
ever changes hands, it will revert back to
agriculture use," said Commissioner Dan
"He had an idea, a grandiose idea," said
Wyrick of White's plan. The plan may

saw that a front headlight
was burned out. His report noted
that the driver was staying on
the far outside edge of the lane
while going ten miles under the
speed limit, and continued on for
a quarter of a mile before heeding
his signal to pull over.
The trooper noticed the odor
of an alcoholic beverage while
speaking with the driver, Robert

asked if he had consumed any

alcohol that evening, Millinax
replied, "Well, I ain't going to lie.
I had a few mixed drinks of rum
and coke a little earlier."
When Millinax stepped out of
the car, the trooper saw an empty
750ml bottle of spiced rum on the
driver's side floorboard.
After failing a roadside sobriety
test, Millinax was handcuffed. As
he was being put in the patrol car,
Millinax began cursing the officer,

calling him "a punk."
Millinax consented to
giving a breath sample at
the scene, which resulted in
a. 125 reading. Later, at the
sheriff's department, two
more blood alcohol samples
were taken, resulting in
readings of .103 and .094.
Florida's legal blood alcohol
limit is .08.
The driver told the trooper he
had consumed half a bottle of rum
that was found in his vehicle, and
was currently taking numerous
medications for pain, blood
pressure and other ailments.
He was also charged with
possession of an open alcohol
container by a driver and issued

Man charged with
striking woman &
breaking dentures
A man living with his
girlfriend at a Burke Pond
Lane residence was arrested on
a domestic battery charge after
a witness reported seeing him
repeatedly strike the woman.
The couple were staying
at a. friend's home when they
began arguing and the woman
told Brad Phillips, 30, to get
his things and leave. She told
deputies that he became angry
and started hitting her in the
face with his fists.
The woman called for help,
summoning their 56-year-old
host, who called 911.
A friend took the victim to
the emergency room, where
a deputy photographed her
injuries. She was bleeding from
her nose and upper lip. She
had a cut on the inside of her
mouth and her dentures were
broken during the altercation,
according to the deputy's

Manasco, who remained
in custody on the previous
charge, told an investigator
she "couldn't believe Starla
had sold her out." She said
Christmas was just as involved
as she was in using the credit
card number, and admitted to
finding Pumphrey's card lying

one at Spencer's and the other
at Eve's Addiction.

with the investigator, locating
the paper with the card numbers
along with several jewelry
purchases, including a skull
and crossbones ring.
Items found in her purse
were documented and taken
into evidence, including a list
of transactions written in pink
ink on notebook paper and a
pair of brass knuckles.

"The last time I spoke with him, he was looking for investors,"
said Nelson Jones of J.R.'s Environmental Consulting, who
was hired to help with permitting. "We did all the preliminary
environmental work. He had to get a development order from the
county to proceed further, but it didn't come about."
Plans for the unique development were covered by CNN and
featured in numerous publications, including Florida Trend and
Southern Living.
White planned to use solar and geothermal features to provide
energy for the community and had received several grants,
including a $1.8 million grant from Florida's Renewable Energy
Technologies Grant Program, "We deferred the grant and returned
it to the state," said Sanford. "Delays in permitting prevented us
from being able to use the grant." That action will leave White Starr
in good standing with the state should they seek future grants.

Janna Grantham & Willis
Lucky is a term to describe many animals, however Willis, a mixed-breed puppy,
exceeds the sentiment. He is approximately 3 1/2 months old and his person is
Janna Grantham of Blountstown.
Janna's father, Gene, found the dog abandoned, hungry, infested with fleas and
covered with ant bites in the Chipola River near the Willis Bridge. He stopped and
picked up the puppy and when he showed it to his daughter, Janna decided that she
would keep him.
She and Willis have become the best of friends. They take walks and play ball to-
gether. "Willis pounces on his ball like a cat," Janna says. He minds very well and is
a smart, happy, healthy puppy who has a personality all his own. He also likes to
visit the neighbors across the street, and their dog, Trina, where he drinks ice water.
Willis is a lucky animal to have been rescued and adopted into a loving family of
aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents.

Chipley man wins $37,865 in FLW Bass Tournament

RUSSELLVILLE, AR-Chad Prough of Chipley
snuck up through the field to claim the third-place spot
with a four-day total of 31 pounds, 14 ounces worth
$37,865 in the Walmart FLW Series BP Eastern
Division tournament on Lake Dardanelle.
Prough was working a section of Spadra Creek and
fished a Lucky Craft RC 1.5 most of the time.
"There were a lot of boats fishing in there," Prough
said. "The second day we had as many as eight boats in
that little creek. Everyone was pitching jigs to stumps
in there, so I decided to give the fish a little different
look.-Once I figured out that those fish would bite a
crankbait on those same stumps that everyone was
pitching a jig to, that became my primary game. It
did not bother me a bit that those guys were in there
fishing, because I really felt like I was on a different
program than they were."
Prough noted that repetitive casts to the stumps
were key.
"I'd bang each stump eight or nine times with that
crankbait, and sometimes they would not bite until the
10th cast," he added.
It came down to the wire Saturday, but in the end
Team lams pro Vic Vatalaro's one-fish catch Saturday
of 1 lb., 9 ozs. was enough to win the Walmart FLW
Series@ BP Eastern Division tournament on Lake
Dardanelle. Vatalaro's four-day catch of 15 bass

weighing 39-4 earned him more than $119,000.
The catch gave him the win by a solid 6-pound, 6-ounce
margin over Nate Wellman of Jenison, MI, who caught a total

What to really expect with

the health care reform bill
Letter to editor,
I enjoyed reading the letters to the editor in the Aug. 19 issue of the
Calhoun-Liberty Journal. The letter supporting the health reform bill
needs a response. The legislators, President and probably most proponents
for socialized or government controlled health care have never lived in a
country with socialized medicine. I have. They don't know what they are
talking about. I do.
I lived in Puerto Rico for 12 years. Their constitution guarantees
health care to everyone. After just a few years there I decided to become
a doctor BECAUSE I got sick and tired of waiting a minimum four hour
wait time to see a doctor. And that was to see a private pay doctor. If
you wanted 'free' care, you have to take your meals with you to spend a
couple of days waiting on hard chairs in the emergency rooms. Then if by
chance, the government decided you met criteria for admission, you had
to send your family home to bring your sheets, pillows and pillow cases
to you because they weren't available in the hospital. You had to make
sure you had a family member standing by to care for you; that is to help
you to the bathroom, get your meals and change your linens. There were
no telephones or television.
When I was in my second year of medical school and doing a rotation
with surgeons, a young mother came in. She had discovered a small lump
in her breast. By the time she got through all the red tape and waiting lines
to get to the 'free' surgeons, her breast had rotted off and she died. It didn't
cost her a penny, it only cost her, her life. And talking about wait times, if
you got cataracts, you had to be completely blind before you could even
get on the wait list and then it was at least 12 months before you could
get cataract surgery. A family member had to take you to the University
hospital and sit with you an entire day just to be told to come back next
month because there was no availability. Free? Maybe. What about the
salary lost by the family member taking off work a full day every month
to sit in a waiting room?
In this country if someone doesn't get health care, it's probably because
they don't WANT it, don't NEED it or just don't KNOW how to get it.
I. Some people may need a liver transplant but they have to give up
tobacco, alcohol and drugs for at least six months to make sure their
bodies are strong enough to take a transplant and to convince the insurance
companies that they will take care of their new liver. Many people prefer
their alcohol and tobacco to getting a new liver. They don't WANT a new
liver bad enough to give up bad health habits.
2. If you NEED an appendectomy all you have to do is get into an
emergency room and a 911 call will get you there and you'll get emergency
surgery no matter what kind of payment you are able to provide.
3. Some people may WANT and NEED a knee or hop replacement or
rotator cuff repair. In THIS country those are all readily available in an
extremely short time frame, but some people may not get them because
they don't KNOW how to go about it. I'm going to clue you in. In Liberty
-County, for example there is a federally qualified health care, center that

covers Calhoun and Liberty counties.
It is the Liberty Community Health
Center right by the pharmacy.
Wendy Smith at 643-2292 knows
how to get that help for you, Wendy
performs more miracles on a daily
basis than just about anyone I
I would suggest that before
the legislators and pro-socialism
fanatics try ramming their socialism
plans down our throats, that they go
live and work in a country with their
idealized health care plans. They'll
quickly 'cop a new attitude' and gain
an appreciation for the incredibly
wonderful and unique country
in which we live, THE UNITED
Besides, we ALREADY have
a lot of socialized medicine in
this country. We have Medicare,
Medicaid, HCRA, Bay Cares, Wee
Cares, Shands Hospital, Federally
Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs)
and all our health departments,
etc., etc.
It is no 'COMPASSION'to insure
50 million Americans by throwing
the other 250+million Americans
under the bus in order to do it.

he refused to stop. He tried
unsuccessfully to go around her

south lane.
As they neared State Road 20,
Hall made a quick right turn onto
NW Main Street, with Smith and
Rudd staying with him. Marotta
continued on and turned west on
State Road 20, heading for the
Hall then turned onto North
Central Avenue, with Smith and
Rudd following as he headed for
the intersection where Marotta's
patrol vehicle was slowing down.
When he spotted the deputy's
vehicle, Hall punched the gas
and peeled out toward Marotta.
She took evasive action to avoid
being hit broadside, veering to
the left. The front passenger's
side was damaged when the car
hit the patrol vehicle. Smith then
pinned the Lincoln with his patrol
car while Rudd parked in front to
keep the teen from driving off.
With both car doors blocked,
Hall tried to squeeze out the
driver's side window, yelling,
"Leave me alone!" as he held his
hands in the air. Officers warned

him to stop as they drew their
Hall refused to calm down and
was forcibly removed by Rudd,
who broke out the passenger's
side window, reached inside,
grabbed the suspect's feet and
pulled him onto the pavement.
Hall remained combative and
it took both Rudd and Smith to
restrain him.
The teen was treated for cuts
from broken glass.
He was then transported to
the jail and placed in a holding
cell. At 2:19 a.m. Sunday, the
two men put Hall in handcuffs
and leg shackles for the ride to

Hall resisted being put in the
car, placing his feet in the door

away, Smith displayed his taser
and warned Hall that he would
be tased if he did not get in the
patrol vehicle.
Hall refused and was hit with
the taser. The taser was used a
second time when he continued
to struggle.
Major Steve Swier and Lt.
Shane Geiger joined.Rudd and
Smith in the struggle to get Hall
seated in the back seat. While
wrestling with the officers, Hall
managed to bite Rudd on his right
forearm and then bit Swier on
his right hand. He continued to-
struggle and managed to push his
way out of the car before the men
knocked him to the ground and
returned him to the vehicle.
He managed to break free a
second time and ran to his sister's
car and jumped on the hood. He
rolled off the vehicle and then
tripped on an embankment.
The teenager, who remained
combative, was then picked up
and carried back to the patrol
car. After a warning, he was
tased a third time and then finally
secured in the car for thedrive to

BHS Principal, Duane Barber (left) and Assistant Principal, Sue Price, present Barbara Pate with the $100 WalMart gift card
she won for going on-line with the Meal Pay Plus and Ed Line with the school.

BHS held their open house on Thursday, Aug. 20 from
-5-7 p.m. Parents and students filled the hallways as the
teachers and staff of BHS welcomed them.
Students were given their schedules when they visited
their homerooms and many freshmen were seen mapping
out their route of classes, plus finding the lockers and

most important, where the lunchroom was located!
Parents could receive a raffle ticket for a $100
WalMart gift card if they went on-line for Meal Pay Plus
and Ed Line. Barbara Pate won the $100 gift card. She
has a son, Curtis Wilkes, who is a freshman at BHS. The
open house was a great success and an excellent start to
this 2009/2010 BHS school year.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) and Big Cypress National
Preserve will implement a
program to reduce the number
of Burmese pythons in the wild
in Florida. Beginning Aug. 29,
the FWC and Big Cypress will
enlist the help of licensed hunters
on specific wildlife management
areas in South Florida.
To move forward quickly
for the 2009 hunting season,
an executive order was signed
by the FWC to allow hunters
on specific areas to take any
Reptile of Concern, including
Burmese pythons, when the
hunters encounter them. The
order also will apply to those
who have received permits to
participate in the alligator hunt
program in the specified areas.
The FWC will be consideringrule
changes as necessary to follow up
on this order for more long-term
The order states, "Reptiles of
Concern as listed in Rule 68A-
6.007(l)(a)-(f) may be taken
during established seasons for
the taking of game animals or
alligators on the areas and only
by persons properly licensed and
permitted to take game animals
... or alligators."
Reptiles of Concern may not
be taken out of the areas alive.
The order also requires hunters
to report the take of Reptiles of
Concern within 36 hours and to
provide the FWC with specific
data about the reptile taken.
For more information on data
collection, go to the Quick Clicks
area of and select
"Burmese pythons."
The lands specified in the
FWC order are Everglades and
Francis S. Taylor, Holey Land,
Rotenberger and Big Cypress
wildlife management areas.
Everglades National Park is not
a participant in this particular

program. However, the FWC is
working with Big Cypress, the
South Florida Water Management
District and the National Park-
Service to manage the Burmese
python problem in the area of
South Florida that encompasses
the Everglades. The Big Cypress
National Preserve is instrumental
in enlisting support from hunters
through its Partnering with
Hunters program.
"It is only natural that we
enlist the aid of hunters,"
said Rodney Barreto, FWC
chairman. "Historically, hunters
have played a great role with
wildlife conservation in this
country, and they know the land
and have a vested interest in
conserving native habitat and
game species."
In July, the FWC began issuing
permits to selected recipients to go
into these wildlife management
areas to search for and euthanize
Reptiles of Concern. The permit
holders and licensed hunters
may remove the hide and meat
of the reptiles from the state-
managed lands. However,
according to the National Park
Service, mercury testing on two
dozen captured Burmese pythons
in Everglades National Park
revealed extraordinarily high
levels of mercury in the meat.
These levels are well above
those considered safe to eat in

freshwater fish and alligators.
The FWC is working with the
National Park Service and the
Florida Department of Health to
get a broader view of this issue.
It will provide updates as further
information about mercury levels
becomes available.
The FWC's goal for these
programs is to contain the spread
of Burmese pythons in the wild
and prevent the establishment
of other Reptiles of Concern.
Data collected by hunters on
these state-managed lands at the
edge of the range of Burmese
pythons will assist in preventing
movement of pythons out of this
range. It is estimated there are
thousands of Burmese pythons in
the wild in South Florida. Experts
believe pet owners may have
released pythons into the wild
when they had grown too large
for the owners to care for them.
It is illegal to release any
nonnative species, including
Reptiles of Concern, into the
wild. Besides Burmese pythons,
the FWC's list of Reptiles of
Concern include the Indian
python, reticulated python,
African rock python, amethystine
or scrub python, green anaconda
and Nile monitor lizard.
If Reptile of Concern pet
owners cannot keep their snakes
anymore, they can turn the
reptiles in during the FWC's Pet
Amnesty Days. These events are
held around the state to provide
the opportunity for people to
surrender their nonnative pets,
with no questions asked. The
next one is Nov. 7 in the Tampa
area; Every attempt is made to
place all healthy animals with
qualified adopters. People with
properly licensed Reptiles of
Concern also may give them
to other licensed individuals.
For more information on Pet
Amnesty Days, go to MyFWC.

Liberty Diamond Dawgs take home the trophy and

title as the Big Bend Baseball League Champions

by, H.W: Bailey
It took the full three game,.
in a best tio-out-of-three game
championship series, but the
Libertm Diamond Dawgs emerged
as champions of the Big Bend
Baseball League of Florida,
defeating the Gulf County Drive
Suriday, in the final-game at the
Liberty County High School
baseball field in Bristol. The Gulf
County Drive won the first game
Sunday, 6-3, making it necessary
to play a third game for the
championship of the League.
The first game on Sunday
proved to be an outstanding
pitching duel between Justin
McCroan for Gulf Drive and the
Parish brothers, Jamie and Jody,
for the Diamond Dawgs, the win
going to McCroan and Jamie
Parish suffering the loss in a 6-3
game. Gulf Drive scored three

doubles by lNcCroan and Justin
Rhodes, then two more in the
top of the seventh, on hits by
Ryan Leaman, Kelley Forehand
and Horton, to complete their
scoring, with a 6-0 lead in the
seventh. The only threat by
the Diamond Dawgs was in the
bottom of the seventh, when the
bases were loaded by three walks,,
a hit batter, and a single by Boo
Morris to score three runs, but
not enough, and the Dawgs fell
to Gulf Drive 6-3.
In the final game of the

series, it was a different story
as the bats came alive for the
Diamond Dawgs to win the final
championship game by a score
of 11-1. The Dawgs wasted no
time as they put six runs on
the board in the bottom of the
first on a three-run homer by
Richie Smith, followed by a solo
homer by Travis Anderson. The
Dawgs continued to add runs
in the second and third innings,
and held a 11-0-lead after three
innings of play. The only run by
Gulf Drive came in the top of
the fifth, but too little too late.
Starting pitcher for the Dawgs,
Tim Young, got the win, but was
relieved by Boo Morris in the
third inning to complete the game
that ended in the tfith, on the 10-
run mercy rule.

Time to sow seed for fall plants

by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County
Even though it's still hot and
humid, August is the time to start
thinking about fall planting. Now
is the time to begin sowing seeds
for fall transplants. By starting now
you can have ornamentals such as
pansies, petunias, calendulas and
snapdragons ready to plant in the
garden in early October. If you
are a vegetable lover, now is the
time to start seeds of broccoli,
cauliflower, cabbage and other
cool season vegetables.
According to William Adams,
a retired Horticulture Agent at
Texas A&M, if starting your own
transplants has been disastrous
for you in the past, especially
in the spring, then take heart
because starting fall transplants
is easier. Since the soil is not as
ccal as it is in spring, there is
not much damping-off disease.

Producers on small farms
or limited acreage face many
opportunities as well as
challenges. A series of upcoming
televised training sessions will
help small producers to identify
new market segments, get their
products to local markets and
address obstacles.
There will be four weekly
sessions beginning on Sept. 10.
The program will be delivered
through interactive video at
the Calhoun County Extension
Service Office. Each session will
be from 6-8 p.m. (CT).
These programs and handouts
are free to participants but please
call our office at (850)674-8323
to register first. We want to
ensure that everyone receives an
information packet. Please call if

Gardeners are able to start the
transplants outside where they
can get plenty of sunlight. But,
it is best if the transplants don't
get too much sun morning sun
and afternoon shade make a good
There are many different
types of containers that can be
used to grow seeds. Even foam
coffee cups, discarded by people
whenever they take a coffee
break, can be used simply by
poking three or four holes in the
side at the bottom of the cup. If
you are reusing containers, be
sure to clean and sterilize them
prior to planting. Typically, a
washing with soap and water
followed by a 15 minute soak
in a 1:10 dilution of bleach and
then a thorough rinse is all that
is needed.
In order to'ensure success, use
a good potting soil mix. Many
standard potting soils will work
fairly well, or you can make your

you have any questions.
The first session covers state
food regulations and federal food
laws as they apply to Florida.
Session two on Sept. 17 covers
potential markets and sales venues,
as well as how to price various
products. Session three on Sept.
24 discusses marketing skills and
packaging requirements, while
session four on Oct. 1 will cover
basic merchandising, marketing,
cash flow and accountability.

but some tiny seeds

Once planted, water

Allow the containers
to drain and then

Perhaps the simplest technique
is just to plant two or three seeds
in each pot, thinning them to one
plant after a few weeks.
If you opt for transplanting, be
sure that you handle the young

seedling only by the leaves. If you
grasp the stem and damage it to
any extent, the young seedling will
be stunted. Pots for transplants
should be filled to within 1/4 inch
of the rim. A pencil can be used
to make a hole in the center of
the potting soil mixture. This is
where a little moisture is critical;
dry soil won't allow the hole to
stay. open. Carefully lower the
seedling roots into the hole and
then use the pencil again in a
lever-like action to firm the soil
against the root system. Be sure
to water the plants carefully,
picking up any that get knocked
into the soil.

National Honey Bee Awareness Day

to highlight contributions of the bee

Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson is joining with
beekeeping associations in Florida
and across the country to recognize
the importance of honey bees. in
our lives. Governor Charlie-Crist
has also issued a proclamation
recognizing Aug. 22 as Honey Bee
Awareness Day.
The first National Honey Bee

Awareness Day is dedicated to
generating public awareness
about the contributions of honey
bees and promotes awareness of
how people can protect the small
insects. Beekeeping organizations
in many areas are holding local
educational events to connect with
their communities.
"Agriculture relies heavily on
honey bees to pollinate dozens
of fruit and vegetable crops,"
Bronson said. "Without them, we
would see a huge drop in our food
supply. We need to learn more
about these important contributors
and help ensure their viability in
the future."
Florida's climate and abundance
of flowering plants make it a
perfect place to keep honey bees,
and the beekeeping industry has
grown tremendously. Florida
is consistently ranked among
the nation's leaders in honey
production with approximately 17
million pounds of honey produced
each year and an annual worth
of $15 million to $20 million.
However, honey is only part
of the story. For every dollar
of honey produced in Florida,
approximately $150 is generated
in honey bee pollination services.
Without honey bee pollination,
the food we eat could decrease by
Honey bees are responsible for
80 percent of all insect pollination.
In addition to indirectly impacting
the food supply by pollinating
crops, they supply the beeswax
used in numerous items including

drugs, cosmetics and candles.
The Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services is a national leader in
protecting honeybees. Through the
Department's Apiary Inspection
Program, the beekeeping industry
is enhanced by working closely
with Florida beekeepers on the
identification and treatment of
honey bee diseases and pests;
certifying honey bees for shipment
to other states for use in honey
production and pollination;
maintaining 500 bait traps to detect
the presence ofAfricanized honey
bees; and monitoring Florida ports,
the interstate highway system and
other vulnerable areas to identify
unusual activity that might indicate
the introduction or spread of
unwanted honey bees species.
In addition, the Department
provides extensive outreach and
education on the importance of
honey bees. The apiary staff has
gained worldwide recognition as
a leader in honey bee production
and pest management and is often
called upon to assist other states
and foreign countries with their
apiary industry challenges.
Through the cooperative efforts
of the Department and the Florida
State Beekeepers Association,
Florida recently set the first honey
standard in the United States.
The standard requires that any
product labeled as honey contain
100 percent honey and not have
any additives. For information

Week of
Aug. 23 to Aug. 29

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, there are too many things to
get done this week, and you sim-
ply cannot add hours onto each
day. Your only solution is to give
up on some things or delegate.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Someone asks a valid question,
Taurus, to which you don't have a
good enough answer. You may be
caught up in some heavy thinking
to find a better response.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Gemini,.a few people are having
trouble reading you this week. Are
you purposefully being evasive?
Perhaps you want to be a bit clearer
so you don't ruffle any feathers.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, unexpected circumstances
leave you with more work than you
had anticipated. Being the trooper
you are, you'll muddle through
somehow. Schedule R&R afterward.

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Leo, there's not much you can
do to staunch the flames of an
inflamed situation on the home-
front. Staying in the background
and lying low for a while could be
your best bets.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
You have finally gotten into a
groove at home and now you have
to transfer that organization to your
work environment, Virgo. This
could take more maneuvering.

LIBRA- Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, you will be heavily relied
upon for some emotional support
during a difficult time. While the ex-
tra responsibility may seem a burden
to others, you shine in your role.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, the events of the week
can seem overwhelming to you.
Rest assured that in a few days'
time you will be able to get back
on track and return to a more
relaxed state.

Sagittarius, relatives rely on you to
be a strong shoulder, but this week
you may buckle under the pressure
just a little bit. It is understandable
to falter once in a while.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Capricorn, feeling angry about
something is one thing. But letting
the anger get the better of you is
another. It may be hard to remain
calm, but it's in your best interest.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Aquarius, you are challenging
yourself to do something you've
never attempted before. The road
may be bumpy, but the rewards
will be great and justified.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
Finances get the better of your
nerves, Pisces, but-when you look
hard you'll find there is really
nothing to worry about.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has not found any
evidence of chronic wasting
disease (CWD) after extensive
testing of the state's white-tailed
deer population.
The FWC tested 582 free-
ranging deer during the past year
and more than 4,000 deer during
the past seven years, with no
CWD-positive results.
"While we can never say that
Florida is entirely free of the
disease without testing every
deer, this sample size gives
us confidence that if CWD is
present in Florida, it is at low
levels," Dr. Mark Cunningham,
FWC's wildlife veterinarian, said.
"However, even low numbers
of CWD-positive deer would
be cause for concern, so we
plan to continue testing for the
foreseeable future."
CWD is a contagious
neurological disease that has
been found in captive and wild
mule deer, white-tailed deer,
moose and Rocky Mountain
elk within several midwestern
and western.states. The disease
causes degeneration of the brains
of infected animals, resulting in
emaciation, abnormal behavior,
loss of bodily functions and
Thus far, no southeastern state,
including Florida, has been hit by
the deer disease.

public for assistance in helping

any sightings of sick or emaciated
deer, or deer dead of unknown
causes," Cunningham said. "If

Please do not handle the deer.
Wildlife biologists will respond,
and if necessary, collect deer

to ensure CWD is not already in
Florida and the disease does not
spread into this state.
There is no evidence that CWD
poses a risk for humans, however,
public health officials recommend
avoiding direct contact with any
sick-looking deer or one that has
died from unknown causes.
