Firefighters hose down hot spots around a Blountstown home that burned Monday. .JciHrjrn EUBAKS PHOTOS
Family of 5 loses home in blaze
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
Samantha Miller said she .was vacuuming in the
-bedroom when the plug blew and she smelled something
burning around noon Monday in her singlewide
trailer on Silas Green Drive, near Sam Atkins Park in
"I thought the vacuum overheated," she said, and
then, "I saw a little tiny flame coming out from behind
the bed and the mattress caught fire."
She said that by the time she got the mattress out of
the way and tried to put it out .with her hand, "The box
spring was on fire."
The electrical outage knocked out her phone so she
screamed for help, calling to her next door neighbor,
Bill Skinner. He ran in as she tried to pour water on
the flames. He grabbed a blanket and attempted to beat
down the fire. It didn't work.
He urged her to get out of the house immediately and
then called 911. "I grabbed the dog and the truck keys
and ran out," she said, adding there wasn't time to try
to grab anything else.
Miller managed to move her boyfriend's truck away
from the blaze but by the time she returned to get her
car, it had already been scorched by the growing fire.
"I tried to come back for the car but Bill was telling me
to go because it was so hot."
Miller was treated for a burned hand but otherwise
escaped injury. She said no one else was home at the
The fire was reported at 12:10 p.m. and crews
from Westside Volunteer Fire Department (WVFD)
and the Blountstown Fire Department responded. An
investigator from the state fire marshal's office was
called to examine the scene.
Tony Money, WVFD assistant fire chief, said the fire
appeared to have been due to "faulty old code aluminum
wiring" in the rental trailer. He said the blaze also burned
several lawnmowers, an ATV and a boat.
The blaze left Miller, her boyfriend, Bryan Cumbie,
and the three children who lived with them with nothing
no clothes, furniture or toys.

Park on Saturday, Nov. 7.
Ms. Light will present results of
her and others' research showing
that Apalachicola River levels
have been declining for more than
50 years, with consequences to
forests and streams throughout its
extensive floodplain. Swamps and
bottomland forests have shifted to
a drier mix of tree species, a trend
expected to continue for many
more decades. The result is that
important floodplain trees such
as cypress and tupelo are being
replaced by upland trees.
Since 1975, there has been
less flbw in spring and summer
as a result of water use, flow
regulation, reservoir evaporation,
and changes in rainfall patterns
in the basin upstream. These
declines in flow have worsened

were caused by channel erosion

ACF Stakeholders incorporate, set initial meeting for Dec. 10 in GA
ACF BASIN The Executive
Committee of the newly formed
ACF Stakeholders group is
pleased to announce that it is
now incorporated in the State
of Georgia as a non-profit
corporation. This event marks an
important milestone in an effort
that began a year ago to create a
diverse, balanced interest group of
stakeholders in the Apalachicola-
The formative principle of the
group is that the political and legal
structures have failed to resolve
the 18 year dispute over how the
waters of the ACF Basin should
be shared. The guiding principle
behind the organizational effort
has been to create a structure that
reflects the diverse interests of
the stakeholders. Representatives
from over sixty organizations have
worked as a Steering Committee
to evolve a structure to achieve
Wilton Rooks, interim President
and Executive Committee member
for the Upper Chattahoochee sub-
basin said "This organization
reflects the best chances that the
three states have of arriving at
a resolution to the conflict over
the waters of the ACF Basin. As
a representative from the largest
population center in the basin, I
look forward to working with the
representatives from the other
basins. Our goal is to arrive at
solutions that are beneficial to
Billy Turner, interim Treasurer
and Executive Committee
member for the Lower & Middle
Chattahoochee sub-basin said "The
ACFS, due to its organization and
make up, intends to bring together
the most knowledgeable, diverse
group representing all water
interests in the ACF watersheds.
A positive outcome from the
ACFS has the best chance to be a
workable solution for the 20 year
old water dispute."
Dan Tonsmeire, interim
Secretary and Executive
Committee member for the
Apalachicola sub-basin said
"The level playing field upon
which the ACFS is built and
participation by those most
affected-by the management of
water throughout the Basin gives
us the best opportunity to find
real and meaningful solutions to
sharing water between citizens of
Vince Falcione, interim
Vice President and Executive
Committee member for the Flint
sub-basin said "This past year, I've
had the opportunity to be part of
the ACF Steering Team working
with stakeholders throughout
the basin. I am confident this
organization will have a positive
impact on this resource now and
in the future."
the basin are now joining as
members. The application and

It's that time of year.
The taxman is knocking on
doors. The tax bill for my prop-
erty arrived. Send money, or
else... None of us like to pay
taxes, but it's a cost of living
in the USA. My grandmother
would grumble, "The only thing
for sure is death and taxes."
Now that I'm approaching her
Jerry Cox is a r
foreign policy issue
\ kalmnnff Cninty
age, I think that she might be right.
There is no free lunch. If we want police and
fire protection and the streets paved then some-
one has to ante up the money. That's us. But the
taxing systems at local, state and federal levels
Florida's ad valorem taxes are a good exam-
ple of inequity in a taxing system. In 1992, the
Save Our Homes amendment to the Florida con-
stitution came into being. Save Our Homes caps
increases in property taxes to 3 percent a year.
In 2008, the Florida constitution was amended
again allowing people protected by Save Our
Homes to take the 3 percent cap rate with them
if they buy another house. Under this taxing sys-
tem, long-time homeowners have a significant
tax advantage over the first-time homebuyer.
The state legislature passed these ad valorem
tax laws because homeowners were squawking
about being "taxed out of their homes."
They had a right to squawk. During the real
estate boom, the local county property appraiser
increased the assessed value of properties by
leaps and bounds. But while property values
were "appreciating in value" and property taxes
increasing accordingly, the property owner's
paycheck wasn't increasing at the same rate.
The downside for government at the local,
county and state level is that they became ac-
customed to the cash rolling in and their budgets
grew accordingly. The real estate
cgs bubble went kaboom, the money
|N ER supply dwindled, and now local
governments are struggling to pro-
etired military vide minimal goods and services.
vithan extensive The problem for us as a society
ies. He lives in is how do we fund activities essen-
/ tial to our collective well-being?
No matter how much we dislike it,
it's taxes. But even more basic is
how to ensure that everyone pays his or her fair
But even more basic than that is what is taxed
and how is it taxed. The idea has always been
that property owners would pay taxes which
provide the majority of the funds required for
government to provide goods and services.
But why should property owners pay when
others do not. A renter doesn't pay property tax.
The renter pays a sales tax on rent but the owner
of the property pays a hefty property tax.
The point is that ad valorem taxes will sup-
port only so much government. Government
cannot continue to squeeze property owners for
the major portion of their income. In a popula-
tion, there is a finite level of taxation. Property
owners reached that level years ago. That is why
Save Our Homes exist. People couldn't afford
to pay more taxes. There has to be a more equi-
table means of financing essential government
goods and services.
What is more equitable? A consumption tax,
perhaps. If I buy a house, I pay a one-time tax
on it just as I do when I buy a truck. But why
should any of us pay an annual tax because we
own a house or a property?
Politicians won't like any of my views, but
there would be fewer tea parties if there was
equality in taxation.

Over 350 brave souls paid a visit
to the annual Backyard Haunt at
the home of Gordon and Melissa
Durham on Durham Road in Bristol
fn last week, where scary scenes and
horrifying creatures were on display
for Halloween. This is the fifth year
for the event, which grows in size and
popularity with each Halloween. The
two-night display is a three month
effort, says Melissa Durham. "It takes
about a month to put the characters
together, a month to set up and a
month to take it down," she said.

It's not Halloween if you don't make the drive to
Kinard for the annual carnival. An estimated crowd of
2,500 people were in attendance at Saturday's Kinard
Halloween Carnival, which is the primary fundraising
event for the Kinard Volunteer Fire Department. Each
year, both kids and adults work hard on putting together
unique costumes for the memorable event. This
year's top selling cake was a Tree Top Tall four-layer
homemade coconut cake baked by Mavis Willis that
went for $250. ANGIE DAVIS PHOTOS
The eldest man and woman in attendance
received large gift baskets. The winners,
shown above, were Ed Doyle, 87 of Wewa,
who is a retired employee of the Blountstown
Post Office, and Evelyn Smith, 92 of Winter
Haven, who is now living with family in Kinard.

five different colleges/universities
after graduating from Childress

his goals of mastering Religion
and Medicine by further educating
himself by attending Texas A&M
for 7 years, McMurry University
for 3 V2 years, SMU for V2 a year,
FSU for 2 /2 years, and Chipola
College for 2 V years. (After going
to so many colleges/universities
he earned his DVM as a certified
veterinarian and along the way he
earned his BA from McMurry Univ.
and his BS from Texas A&M.) He
was still motivated to become a
teacher. He credits his' 11th grade

,,I; Having been married since
S i May 1969, he loves his
family and tells me that the
most precious gift he has
ever received is his family
of four daughters. His
four daughters (Caralleen,
* 5 Michele, Janet and Sharon)
i- "have all graduated from
derson Blountstown High School
and are all currently
working in Florida. He has a total of
six grandchildren Caralleen, Michele
and Janet each have two children.
Caralleen is a Physical Therapist in
Tallahassee; Michele is a Registered
Nurse who works in Jackson
County; Janet is a 1st grade teacher
at Blountstown Elementary School;
and Sharon works at Blountstown
Drugs as a Pharmacist Technician
and is also a certified public school
teacher. The most fascinating fact
that I discovered about Dr. Henderson
through interviewing him was that
his wife was a direct descendant of
Pierre El' Enfant (the engineer for
George Washington). After learning
that his favorite hobbies are driving a
tractor and managing grass pastures,
it was no surprise to me when Dr.
Henderson said that his favorite genre
of music is mainly country western
of the 1950s.
Knowing that Doc is a very well-
rounded and educated man, it's
obvious that he enjoys reading.
Without hesitation, he told me that his
favorite bookwas an historical account
written by Stephen E. Ambrose
called D-Day. After interviewing Dr.
Henderson, I as a student, was able to
learn and better understand one of the
most influential and friendly teachers
at Blountstown High School.

Liberty Bulldogs taken the
Gadsden Panthers and win 23-6
by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
Liberty County's win over West Gadsden wasn't -a
work of art, but in the end the canvas was painted as the
Bulldogs defeated the visiting Panthers 23-6 Friday.
Stedman Williams scored the first points of the game
when he carried a defender the last four yards into the end
zone with 3:23 remaining in the first quarter. Williams
touchdown capped a four play drive that started on their
own 28 yard line.
West Gadsden wasn't able to sustain a drive the
remainder of the half. Liberty was able to drive the ball
into Panther territory but then had the drives stall due to
miscues or penalties. The Bulldogs were able to score
again late in the first halfwhen Mike Lobse hit a field goal
to cap an eight-pla\ drine and gie Libertx a 10-0 lead.
On the ensuing kickoff Tr-stan Summers doe into a
pile of players fighting for a loose ball and came out with

of the play. but the combination of a field goal and
turnover on the kickoff seemed to both lift LibertN and
deflate WVest Gadsden going into the half.

West Gadsden closed the gap late in the game after the
Bulldogs fumbled a punt on a failed attempt to pick up
the ball after several bounces. The Panthers converted the
miscue into a touchdown on a pass play. Liberty's defense
swarmed the quarterback on the two-point conversion
attempt to keep the lead at 16-6.
The last score of the game came when Bulldog
quarterback Terrance Evans broke free and outraced
the defense on a long touchdown run to make the score
With the win Liberty moves to 7-1 overall and 3-1 in
the district. The Bulldogs travel to Blountstown No\. 6

Tigers take care of business in Franklin Co.
with shutout to retain perfect district record
by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
The Blountstown Tigers traveled to Franklin County and took care of business
gy .in convincing fashion to keep their perfect district record intact Friday night with
4' ~a 41-0 shutout.
The Tigers'first touchdown came on a 77-yard pass play from P.J. Buggs to Leon
Broxton in the first quarter. Blountstown added a first quarter rushing touchdown
by Alexander Garrett from eight yards out.
The Tiger defense kept the Seahawks in check all night as they held
tde home team to negative rushing ards and only 30 yards
passing. The Seahawks' inability to nmoe the ball
siinply helped the Tigers pile on the points
The second quarter started with
Princeton Grant scoring on a run
from just inside the Seaha\ k

District playoff picture for the Tigers & Bulldogs
by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
A win by the Blountstown
Tigers settles the district playoff
picture by securing the Tigers the
top seed and handing the second
seed to Port St. Joe. A win by
Liberty complicates the picture
a bit more.
A Bulldog win combined with
a Port St. Joe loss to Wewahitchka
gives Liberty first place in the
district and the Tigers second
place. Wins by Liberty and Port
St. Joe force a three-way tie for
first in the district.
If there is a three-way tie in the
district the Bulldogs, by virtue
of a better overall record would
be the host team for the playoffs
that would be held November 9 in

Bristol. In that scenario, the first
quarter of action would see the
Tigers and the Sharks play one
quarter of football. The winner
would move on to play in Quarter
Two against Liberty. A win by
Liberty would give them the
district title and the loser would
be the second seed.
If Liberty lost Game Two,
the winner would be the district
champion and Liberty would
then play one quarter against the
loser of Game One. The winner

runner up and the loser would be

Drought and salt-tolerant agaves are Florida-friendly plants
by Theresa Friday,
Horticulture Extension Agent,
Santa Rosa County
Nothing draws more atten-
tion in a neighborhood then a
flowering century plant. With
its soaring flower stalk and
menacing looking foliage,
these plants are show stoppers.
The century plant is a type of
succulent in the Agave ge-
nus. Gary Knox, Professor at
the University of Florida, tells
us more about this interesting
group of plants.
Many people rightly think
of agave and yucca as tough
plants associated with extreme
environments like deserts and
dunes. What they may not real-
ize is that agave and yucca also
adapt well to home and com-
mercial landscapes where they
thrive in the sometimes harsh
conditions associated with ur-
Agave and yucca are found
in native environments that
typically are hot, sunny, dry,
windy, or scrubby with little
water and poor soil. In cultiva-
tion, this adaptability translates
into low maintenance since
typically they need little or no
irrigation, fertilizer, pruning or
tion of many
cause of their
forms and un- ,
or spines. Part
of the fascina-
tion with these .
plants may lie
in this armor,
because there is almost a sense
of danger when growing these
plants! Agave tends to have
more armor than yucca. Each
agave plant consists of a rosette
of long, stiff, spear-shaped,
fleshy leaves often armed with
teeth and tipped with a long

-to grey, and
leaves may be
striped or mottled with white,
cream, yellow and chartreuse.
Flowering also is dramatic
and attractive though it some-
times takes years before do-
ing so. When finally flower-
ing, however, agave develops
branched spikes of yellow, rose
or white tubular.flowers on in-
credibly tall stems 6 to 40 feet
above the plant. After flower-
ing, the parent plant typically
dies, although usually a num-
ber of small plants form around
the base of the parent plant.
The small plants are techni-
cally called "offsets" but have
the more imaginative common
name of "pups". These may be
separated from the parent plant
Yucca is similar to agave but
often forms trunks and typical-
ly has more numerous, thinner,
leathery leaves with a smaller
terminal spine. Yucca leaves
range in color from deep green
to pale blue, and leaves may
be striped in shades of white,
cream, yellow and chartreuse.
When in flower, yucca pro-
duces large, upright panicles
of white, bell-shaped flowers.
Unlike the tall flower stems of
agave, yucca flower panicles
are held within or just above
the foliage. There are more
than 20 species of Yucca of
which 4 can be considered na-
tive to Florida.

When you look out the window,
you probably see trees, bushes
and sometimes birds eating wild
seeds or berries. But what if you
go outside and look about? Do
you see ants crawling on the

All sorts of animals big and
small live in your backyard.
Some fly, some crawl, some
jump, and some slither. They live
under rocks, logs and leaves; up
in bushes or trees; near water; and
in holes in the ground and cracks
in your house.
For your first Backyard Safari,
look under a plant's leaves,
especially if they look as if
something chewed on them.
This is where caterpillars hang
out. They look like worms with
many legs. Some caterpillars look
hairy, while others are smooth.
Caterpillars change into pretty
butterflies or moths. Leaves hide
caterpillars from birds that might
want to eat them for lunch.
Unless you know what kind of
caterpillar you are looking at, do
not touch it. Sometimes the ones
that look furry are prickly. They
could be poisonous.
Ask an adult to help you turn
over a log or large stone (be
sure to turn the log toward you
in case there is a snake hiding
underneath). It is not hard to find
a beetle because there are many
different ones. In fact, they are the
largest group of insects on Earth.

20 yard line. J.J. House then took
the handoff from quarterback Will
Hosford and raced 20 yards for the
games first score. House then added
the two point conversion that put the
Dawgs up 8-0.
After a turnover on the Bucks next
possession, Liberty County took over
at midfield and two plays later Jarrod
Beckwith took a reverse around the
left end for what appeared as another
score. However, a penalty nullified
the touchdown and brought the ball
back to the 35 yard line. After the

plays to find the end-zone as House
took a sweep the distance for the
score. Garrett Swier took a dive
play up the middle for the 2-point
conversion and then made the score
Excellent defense held the much
bigger Port St. Joe squad in check
for the rest of the 3rd quarter. With
six minutes left in the game Liberty
took over on the Buccaneer 45
yard line and on 3rd down QB
Micah McCaskill connected with
a wide open Jake Bunkley who
outran defenders for the game's
final touchdown. Swier then added
another 2-point conversion that
made the score 24-0. The defense,
led by D.J. Pittman, Garret Swier,
Cameron Parrish, Will Hosford, and
William Hayes, played excellent for
the Dawgs who shut out Port St. Joe
for the first time this year.
With the win, the Pee-Wee squad
moves to 5-0 on the season and are
in first place in the league. The
Dawgs faced the Chattahoochee
Yellow Jackets Tuesday night in
league play and are gearing up for the
Blountstown Tigers next Tuesday.
Updates for the Chattahoochee game

Teeny-Mites play tough,
lose to Port St. Joe
The Liberty County Teeny Mite
team fell to a much bigger and faster
Port St. Joe squad Saturday 26-6.
The young Liberty County team
scored its only touchdown on a run
from QB Lane McCormick. Missed
tackles accounted for most of the
big plays and the touchdowns by
Port St. Joe.
However, the Pups had many
bright spots throughout the game and
improved with every snap.
Alex Valdcz led the defense and
plays by Cole Brandon, Tucker
Singletary, Tony Zuniga, Charlie
Burns, and Joseph Finuff showed
attitude and determination as the
Pups never quit playing hard.
The Pups played Chattahoochee
at home Tuesday and will face off
against the Pirates this Saturday as
they travel to Sneads.

for the score and went into the half
The Bulldogs were held scoreless
until the 4th quarter when Chi-Chi
Roulhac hooked up with the speedy

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Good feelings may be taken
for granted this week, Aries,
so you might go out of your
way to appreciate them.
Appreciate the small things.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Your emotions are strong and
upbeat this week, Taurus, and
foundations laid in the next few
days will be firm and long-last-
ing. Friendships are easily made.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Be respectful in the company of
others, because a little slip of the
tongue can cause major problems,
Gemini. Being calm and polite is
the way to go for some time.
Cancer, expect some
realizations that startle and
surprises that change your way
of thinking all this week. It's an
exciting ride, and you will prob-
ably love every minute of it.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Be alert and on your toes, Leo,

bound to be fast and most likely
hectic. Meet others halfway and

electrical energy with someone
whom you least expected, Virgo.
This could change your way of
thinking about your love life.

Restlessness and excitement start
out your week, Libra, but soon
this impatience turns to boredom.
You need to find a way to keep up
your energy levels the entire week.

You will find your intuition is right
on the mark and your reactions fit
in with all around you, Scorpio.

in the air. Don't contribute to that
line of thinking. Be a fresh voice.

A flurry of activity for several
days has the phone ringing off the
hook, Capricorn. Turn it offand
enjoy some quiet time whenever
you can. Challenges are minimal.

.focus now, Aquarius, and you have
a stronger sense of where you
should go with your life's direc-

Tolar's Family Reading night
turns out to be a real fright!
Scary Stories was the theme for W.R. Tolar's recent Family Reading
Night. Over 100 students, parents and staff enjoyed games, snacks
and scary stories around the campfire. Jackie Jackson, Ashley Mercer,
Lauren Fant, Lindsay Anders and Emily Swier, from LCHS's Early
Childhood Education class, came dressed in costumes to read scary
stories to the students. The Culinary Arts class at LCHS prepared
the snacks. A special thanks to everyone that made this a special
and exciting event.
